Congressional Democrats, aided by turncoat Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), approved a formal resolution in favor of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump earlier today.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the ridiculous proclamation that she is leading the charge for impeachment to protect the Constitution, a document which she has worked her entire life in public office to undermine.
Pelosi: "This Constitution is the blueprint for our republic—and not a monarchy.
"But when we have a president who says Article Two says I can do whatever I want, that is in defiance of the separation of powers. That's not what our Constitution says." https://t.co/OzrDAzDZ9Y pic.twitter.com/m5SeQoj7FA

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) questioned the efforts of the Democrats, believing that they are putting their partisan witch hunt ahead of working to solve problems on behalf of the American people.
“We are not working for the American people, those items would resemble the achievements of a productive Congress, a Congress that truly works for the people. But you know what this Congress counts? This Congress records more subpoenas than laws, that’s the legacy,” McCarthy said, referring to important budget and policy issues that are being neglected by House Democrats to instead pursue impeachment.
“This impeachment is not only an attempt to undo the last election, it is an attempt to influence the next one as well,” he added.
The resolution ultimately passed by a 232-196 margin. Every Congressional Republican voted against the measure, but the House Democrats did not achieve the unanimity they desired. Reps. Collin Peterson (D-MN) and Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) voted against the resolution and refused to go along with their party’s desperate overreach.
The White House is pushing back against the frenzied push against the President.
The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!

“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense. That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-American.”
Rep. Amash, who left his party and stabbed his constituents in the back to oppose the President, joined the Democrats to vote in favor of the measure.
We swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath to support and defend Donald Trump’s abuse of the office of the presidency.

This president will be in power for only a short time, but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name. To my Republican colleagues: Step outside your media and social bubble. History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous, and false defenses of this man.

Amash is considering a presidential run next year in an attempt to peel away some of President Trump’s support in a key battleground state of Michigan, similar to what CIA operative Evan McMullin tried to do in Utah unsuccessfully during the 2016 election.
“The counsel of Gandalf was not founded on foreknowledge of safety, for himself or for others,” said Aragorn. “There are some things that it is better to begin than to refuse, even though the end may be dark.”

“Most Americans, in my view, fall within the sphere of libertarianism or classical liberalism. They might not call themselves libertarian, they might not call themselves classical liberals, but they fall within that sphere and could support a party that presents those ideas. And so I think that there is room for a third party presenting those, that presenting that vision,” Amash said to Vox.
Although the Democrats and the Benedict Arnold of our age are pushing for impeachment, it is not likely to go anywhere considering the effort is underpinned by flimsy charges regarding Trump’s phone call with Ukraine. The entire situation may help Trump’s re-election chances, as the public realizes that the deep state and congressional swamp really are out to sabotage the President.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686
— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) September 25, 2020
Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
