Alabama Democrat Senator Doug Jones revealed on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 that he will be voting to convict President Donald Trump during the impeachment trial.
Jones is viewed as a possible swing vote due to his presence in a state that overwhelmingly supported Trump in 2016.
The Alabama Senator’s office issued a statement where he alluded to his oath of office and he vowed to “keep an open mind” during the trial before making this decision.
“After many sleepless nights, I have reluctantly concluded that the evidence is sufficient to convict the president for both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” Jones stated. He added that he “read thousands of pages of transcripts, watched videos of testimony, [took] copious notes, reviewed history and precedents and discussed this case with colleagues, staff, and constituents.”
Jones came to the conclusion that Trump’s dealings with Ukraine “placed his personal interests above the national interests,” and put national security at risk. In Jones’s view, Trump was delaying military aid to Ukraine and sought an announcement that a foreign country was investigating his political opponents. Jones argued that Trump abused his power.
The Alabama Senator did criticize the way House Democrats handled impeachment proceedings.
He believed that they should have challenged Trump’s assertion of executive privilege in the court system. Instead they rejected or willingly decided to not issue subpoenas, and then asserted that Trump’s abuse of executive privilege demonstrated obstruction.
“The second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress, gave me even more pause,” Jones stated.
Despite his criticism of the House’s behavior, Jones still maintained his belief that Trump was guilty.
“The president’s actions demonstrate a belief that he is above the law, that Congress has no power whatsoever in questioning or examining his actions, and that all who do so, do so at their peril,” he commented. “That belief, unprecedented in the history of this country, simply must not be permitted to stand.”
Jones expanded on his decision to convict Trump on the Senate floor on Wednesday morning.
“Throughout the trial, one piece of evidence continued to stand out for me,” he remarked “It was the president’s statement that under the Constitution we have Article II and I can do anything I want. That seems to capture this president’s belief about the presidency.”
The impeachment saga is just the latest in the attempts by the political establishment to derail the Trump presidency.
In a clear act to overturn the democratic will of the American people, D.C. hacks want to try to nullify the results of the 2016 elections.
Thankfully, the Senate is in Republican hands and there are not enough votes to convict.
Republicans should use this impeachment fiasco on the campaign trail to demonstrate how obstructionist Democrats are.
This is one saga that the American people should have not been subject to.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America
However, there’s a catch.
Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”
During an interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.
“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”
In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.
“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”
The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.
Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.
“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED conference.
Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.
During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.
Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.
Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.
“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.
In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.
“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”
Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.
As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.
Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
