The House has fallen. This will make the President’s vision hard to complete over the next 2 years of his 1st term. Many of the President’s promises cannot take place without the help of Congress. And with the House under Democratic Leftist control actual lawmaking will come to a standstill.
For the next 2 years we cannot compromise the Republic in the House. Anything the Leftists champion must be opposed. Even if that results in a shutdown of the government.
The Left will move forward with their plan of revenge. Endless investigations into the President and his Administration. Endless Impeachment Articles against the President and his Administration. These of course will be acquitted in the Senate but it will take up valuable time in both houses of Congress.
Additionally the Left will move forward with legislation and their adgenda to destroy the Republic and American Exceptionalism.
Of course we also must begin our campaign to take back the House in 2020 to give President Trump a united government for his 2nd term.
This meme is now floating around Social Media so it should be debunked for the nonsense and misinformation that it contains.
There were 4 charges against President Clinton when the US House started impeachment proceedings against him. 2 counts of perjury, that is lying to a grand jury while under oath. 1 count of obstruction of justice and 1 count of abuse of power.
The US House succeeded in impeaching President Clinton on 2 of the 4 charges. 1 charge of perjury and 1 charge of obstruction of justice. The impeachment trial was handed to the US Senate which ended in an acquittal.
Per Article 2, Section 4 of the US Constitution. The President and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Not the speculation of, hearsay of, rumors of, alleged crimes. Just like any Citizen, even the President is to be given a fair trial. When the President is tried for Impeachment within the US Senate, the Chief Justice presides over the trial and there must be two thirds majority to gain a conviction. And the US House determines if the President or any other civil Officer is going to be impeached.
As of yet, there is no evidence that our 45th President has committed any crime that is impeachable by the US House. Only memes, misinformation, and nonsense posted on Social Media. You cannot impeach the President for winning the election because you voted for another candidate.
It’s already being discussed in some circles of our political spectrum to create a viable 3rd party nominee for President. I remarked about this in a previous post on how it could possibly happen in this election cycle. And now it’s looking more likely every day.
As far as the Democrats go, they already have a 3rd party candidate running, Bernie Sanders. And if he doesn’t get the nomination he may again split off as an independent alternative to Hillary Clinton. He has a sizable following that she cannot win over to her banner.
And we have the GOP. Unfortunately the party of vote splitting. In the past it’s always been the Republicans who end up splitting their voter base with a 3rd party nominee. Which enables the Democrats to win the election because they unify and rally behind their nominee.
Those in favor of a 3rd party split nominee for the Republicans in this election cycle want something different. Not just a protest vote against the establishment and the 2 major parties. Such candidates are not viable and your vote ends up being wasted.
No this time the independent 3rd party nominee must be viable. They must be able to win a few states in the general election. Not just getting a few votes. No 3rd party candidate has ever done that before in a presidential election year.
This time the 3rd party nominee must prevent the major parties or other independents running for President from obtaining the needed 270 electoral votes. That is the goal of those looking into a possible 3rd party independent nominee.
To have someone who can really make a difference in the outcome of the election. To force the Electoral College to turn the election over to the US House of Representatives and have the President elected there instead.
This is going to be the year of 3rd Party runs. Something no one predicted going into this race for the White House.
One the progressive side we have Hillary Clinton as the front-runner and possible nominee of the Democratic Party. There is enough grassroots support for Bernie Sanders to be a write-in or 3rd Party candidate if Hillary Clinton is the nominee.
Likewise on the conservative side we have Donald Trump as the front-runner and possible nominee of the Republican Party. There are deep rifts in the GOP and the candidates are all backing out of their pledge to support the nominee.
There is talk among the Ted Cruz supporters for a 3rd Party run or possible write-in campaign. Even John Kasich isn’t ruling out such a move.
This could turn out to be a very interesting race once the nominees are chosen. Maybe even the US House could end up electing the US President in 2016.
