Tuesday News Roundup: A UniParty Impeachment Deal, and Why Ron DeSantis Must Lead the GOP Resistance

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update – Just a reminder that we are now less than 3 weeks away from the 365-day anniversary of “15 Days to Flatten the Curve.”

BREAKING: The UniParty has reached a deal with itself! – The Democrats’ latest impeachment scam attacking Donald Trump is set to start today, as UniParty leaders Democan Chuck Schumer and Republicrat Mitch McConnell reached a deal on what the “rules” for the looming orgy of hyper-partisan slander will look like.

From a story at Politico:

The agreement between Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in conjunction with the House impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers, will allow up to four hours of arguments on Tuesday about the constitutionality of putting a former president on trial. The Senate will then vote on whether the trial is constitutional.

Beginning on Wednesday, each side will have up to 16 hours to lay out their case, spread out over two days per side. Senators will then have four hours to pose questions to the House managers and Trump’s attorneys.

The agreement also allows for the House managers to ask for a debate and subsequent votes on whether to call witnesses — a provision specifically requested by the managers, Schumer said. Later, each side will have two hours to present closing arguments.

[End]

On that last point, Democrats will have to tread lightly on calling witnesses, given that several Republicans – like Lindsey Graham – have threatened to retaliate for any Democrat calling of witnesses by calling an array of prominent Dems to testify, including members of the senate itself:

What is shaping up here is exactly what everyone should have anticipated: Yet another act in the unending farce that is the DC Swamp Kabuki Theater. We already know the outcome – there will not be nearly enough votes to convict the former President of the fraudulent “incitement to insurrection” article of impeachment – and every word uttered by any Democrat will be a bald-faced lie. Because that’s what Democrats do.

Of course, they will have as many as five RINOs voting with them, so they’ll be able to claim it was all “bi-partisan.” But even that word itself is a sham as applied to Washington, DC, since there is in reality only one party in the DC Swamp, and everything it does is scripted in advance.

Are we not entertained?

Where are Texas and Florida on this? – The state legislatures in North Dakota and South Dakota are both currently considering bills that would give their governors extraordinary authority to nullify Biden executive orders that they and their attorneys general deem to be illegal and/or unconstitutional.

From a story at RedState.com:

In other words, if Biden issues an executive order, the state’s attorney general may review the order to determine if it complies with the Constitution. From there, the state will determine if they should seek exemption from the order or challenge the order on constitutional grounds.

The bill goes on to state specifics when it comes to the orders it will “nullify” in the event of constitutional breaches, such as “pandemics or other health emergencies,” regulation of North Dakota’s agriculture industry, any financial orders that relate to environmental or social standards, and “the regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

As a separate but related bill, Republican State Rep. Sebastian Ertelt introduced a similar law that would nullify any federal laws that also breach constitutional authority. HB1282 would create a “Committee on Neutralization of Federal Laws” which would determine the constitutionality of any given federal law and, if found wanting, would proceed to nullify it within the state.

North Dakota isn’t the only state looking to implement these bills into law. South Dakota has cooked up a few of their own bills that effectively do the same thing.

[End]

This is what is known as a good start, but the same approach needs to be taken up by every Red State in America. This is the way for Republicans/conservatives to resist the leftist surge the Biden/Harris people are currently attempting to force upon the American public.

Conservatives are not going to do what Democrats do, and create a terrorist wing (BLM/Antifa) that executes violent riots all over the country on their behalf. The way for conservatives to resist these unconstitutional orders is through the legislative process and the courts, which means that GOP-dominated legislatures and GOP governors will have to suck it up and lead the effort.

It’s one thing for the Dakotas, with their combined populations of less than 2 million Americans, to do this, but what is needed is for Texas and Florida, with their combined populations now in excess of 50 million, to also jump into the fray and lead. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton got off to a good start a few weeks ago with his challenge to Biden’s order to halt all deportations, but a start is all that is. We now need the governors of those states to step in.

There, we will have to hope that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will lead the way, since Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott has proved to be very timid in really challenging the national orthodoxy. Take it from a Texan: If there is to be a real and viable conservative resistance to the Biden/Harris junta, DeSantis will have to lead it.

Being a leftist crisis actor means never having to say you’re sorry:

What, Robert DeNiro and Alec Baldwin weren’t available? – The great Mollie Hemingway has a terrific takedown of Jeep’s amazingly tone-deaf and hypocritical Super Bowl ad featuring 3-note rock star Bruce Springsteen at The Federalist today. After spending the past four years as a prominent participant in the far-left hate campaign against Donald Trump, Springsteen is not quite the last person Jeep should have selected to feature in an ad calling for national unity, but he’s pretty damn close.

Here’s an excerpt from Hemingway’s piece:

Just before the 2020 election, Springsteen called for “an exorcism in our nation’s capital” as dark music played on his radio show. Of Trump’s presidency, he said, “I thought it was a f—ing nightmare, but it was true.” The episode, titled “Farewell To The Thief,” also insulted President Trump’s family.

The 71-year-old Springsteen told Australians that he would leave the United States and move there if Trump was re-elected.

Springsteen’s posture against Republicans is well known and goes back decades. He was angry at President Ronald Reagan’s positive mention of Springsteen’s “Born In The U.S.A.” He endorsed and campaigned for John Kerry, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden.

Of President George W. Bush in 2008, Springsteen said the United States was now “suffering the consequences” of eight years of rule by a “very radical group of people who pushed things in a very radical direction, had great success in moving things in that direction, and we are suffering the consequences.” By 2016, he was calling President Trump a “moron.” In 2017 he bashed Trump in a protest song.

As one Twitter user put it, “That’s all I could think of, the whole spot. Being preached to by someone who doesn’t respect my views who relishes in suppressing them, having the nerve to pretend to be ‘my community’ and declare unity. They have no idea how transparently cynical the whole thing came across.”

[End]

The choice of a spokesman by Jeep could have been worse, but not a lot worse. I’ve actually bought two Jeeps in my life, but will never even consider buying another one after this cynical display.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever before. Whatfinger.com is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge. It’s the tool I use to help keep up with all the day’s events, and it should be your tool, too.

I have an idea that I am borrowing from the movie “Miracle on 34th Street”.

According to the Constitution of the United States of America, only a sitting President can be impeached. Therefore, by impeaching President Trump, Congress is acknowledging to the world that Trump won the November 3rd, 2020 election and is the President of the United States.

Because of this, I am today, mailing a letter to President Donald J. Trump C/O the White House, Washington, D.C. congratulating him on the win. I am hoping that the 80 million plus people who voted for President Trump will do the same.

Thank you to the members of Congress for showing the world the truth!

Quit paying attention to Republicans: or still hoping Republicans are just losers who might learn to be winners? Republicans are just traitors looking for the big payday as Paul Ryan did. THE CON GAME is to provide the Democrats with just enough Republican votes to undermine the Republican voters.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this article and what States can do to fight it? It failed in California so why not make it Nation-wide. https://fee.org/articles/the-democrats-just-reintroduced-a-labor-law-that-would-destroy-uber-and-it-could-actually-pass-this-time/

Oh look, another never Trumper deigning to tell us what’s best.
Bet he still thinks we need the GOP too. Moron.

Springsteen is no scholar. Actually he is nothing but a loud mouthed has been who, like the other similar stooges of hollywood, live only on their inflated egos. To ignorant to see the communism the China bag boy Biden is encouraging.

Silas

Like most of the foul souls in “entertainment” they are all narcissists.

Gregg

In Nov 1992, I knew what the election of BJ Clinton and his nominal wife was going to do to our country. At the time, however, I did not realize just how similar Bush the first was to Clinton, agenda wise. I knew I was unhappy with Bush which is why I was on the Perot bandwagon. I had hoped Perot would have been Today’s Trump, but he was just a lazy loudmouth fraud who was probably hired or at least somehow compensated by the DNC to split the anti-Clinton vote and ensure bubba’s election years.

I always look at the effect of what happens rather that the promises or explanations of “untended consequences” on any public issue, law or policy. Because, to quote donkey icon FDR: ” Nothing (in politics) happens by accident, if it happens, you can bet it was planned.”

Anyways, I felt that bubba and walking eagle would have thought us a lesson: never to vote for a donkey for president again. But since we were largely at relative peace and the economy was seen by most as good, bubba’s excesses were ignored and he was able to make himself a victim of the GOP congress. He basically had a free ride courtesy of Reagan’s policies and defeat of the USSR for most of his presidency. Clinton’s main legacy was to infest Washington, DC with leftist judges and other lifelong bureaucrats, many of whom are still there today.

Bush the second was no better than his dad. He did nothing to clean up the swamp and the Clinton sewage continued to fester.

I was able to take some solace in the 2008 election of ‘the 0ne’ over Ace, because I felt the country had to see how bad things could get before they were going to be significantly changed for the better. How wrong I was! And Mutt’s 2012 planned loss was devastating to me.

The election of Trump not only paused the donkey agenda but reversed much of the worst of it.

With the faux election of btfsplk/roundheels, we have used up our three strikes and we’re out (at least temporarily) as a first world nation and superpower.

I guess it is the nature of mankind to be stupid. The adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”, has never been more relevant. DC’s adage is if it ain’t broke, keep fixing it until it is broken and then be a “savior” by promising to fix it.

Perhaps the disaster that is the result of the 2020 ‘election’ will finally force the needed repair America so disparity needs. If it doesn’t, we will fail as a nation and join history’s long list of nations and empires that fell from within.

At best, I give our chance of recovery as one in three. I give those odds, because there are about that percentage of the population that got Trump elected when Walking Eagle was the odds-on favorite which proves the Left’s juggernaut isn’t always successful.

Two things we can take solace in: 

The Left’s agenda will now be on vivid display for all to see which could galvanize a large majority of Americans to take action and beat the donkeys for good.

And remember, that only about a third of the American Colonialists were in favor of declaring Independence from Great Britain and fighting the Revolutionary War; a third were the proverbial fence sitters (aka as most of today’s GOP politicians), and a third were donkeys, I mean loyalists to King George III.

PS: I watched the Super Bowl as I am a Tom Brady fan. I taped it and fast forwarded through all the commercials and the increasingly insipid halftime dog and pony show(s) so I was not upset by whatever messages were being sent.

KC’s quarterback Mahomes is a class act and I appreciate his excellence as much as I appreciate Brady’s and every other successful person. I don’t care their skin color. As MLK said, I judge people by the content of their character and NOT the color of their skin. Sad how the Left’s propagandists have bastardized his message and have everything EVERYTHING about the color of one’s skin. I do find it amazing how there are so many lily-white ‘journalists’, reporters, analysts and commentators on the sports and news shows… The NFL is about 75% black (the nation is about 12% black) and because a white quarterback has won Super Bowls in February during (gasp) Black History Month and the NFL constantly (reportedly) fails to hire a certain quota of black coaches and general managers, it is “racist”. Yet no such comparison is made about all the networks who are staffed with overwhelmingly self-loathing (because of their skin color and perceived ‘privilege’) lily-white anchors, editors, producers and owners. However, I see none of them giving up their lucrative positions to a minority.

Silas

And the stuper bowel has been played in February forever, so wtf? It’s all part of the new white conservative Christian bad meme.

Just more ranting and demands that one race be uplifted over another because of past history and a bunch of race baiting grifters.

“There is a certain class of race problem-solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Also From Mr. Washington

Of all forms of slavery there is none that is so harmful and degrading as that form of slavery which tempts one human being to hate another by reason of his race or color. One man cannot hold another man down in the ditch without remaining down in the ditch with him

Petunia30

Nullify is good. I would suggest the States simply ignore EOs since they don’t have the force of law. Don’t waste taxpayer money challenging the feds in court–let the feds have to go to court.

Sharon Campbell

Springsteen has no idea he is completely irrelevant. The Hollyweird crowd never seems to realize when they are over. They continue to believe the press releases written by their staff.

JB_Honeydew

Right on, Sharon. Whatever happened to the actor, musician, athelete that does their respective job and then goes home to enjoy the fruits of their lucky breaks, all the while keeping their damn mouths shut? I miss those days

Morgen Seher

Out of those three categories surely we can agree that athletes far less often proper from lucky breaks.

JB_Honeydew

Due to a lack of potential royalties, yeah athletes are probably the most susceptible of the 3.

Gregg

Plus, unless their name id Tom Brady, the average career of a successful athlete who makes it to the pros is about four years.

They generally have a very short shelf-life unlike actors, musicians and, unfortunately, most politicians.

Gregg

is Tom Brady – man, I either have to learn to type or proof read my short blurbs better.

JB_Honeydew

Typos happen. I call it being human. No worries. 😎
