I went to the ‘ol Google and typed in “polls on impeachment.” Three results appeared up top.
- CBS tells us that 90% of Democrats support the impeachment inquiry.
- MSNBC asked 2,059 Americans - or .00006% of the population - and 55% approved of the impeachment idea.
- Newser was our third result, and they pretty much copy/pasted what the other two sites had said. One piece of interest is that 23% of Republicans support impeachment.
Yeah, the swamp.
This interests me the most.
Let’s say the House gets its shit together and actually sets up a vote for impeachment now rather than later.
Chances are good that Trump would be impeached, just as Johnson was and Clinton after him.
Now we turn it over to the Senate, and there they’d need a two-thirds supermajority vote to convict, which would then force the president from office.
Depending on how the Senate wants to structure that vote, they’d need either 60 or 67 votes to convict.
Currently there are 45 Democrats in the Senate and 2 Independents.
So we have a solid 47 votes for impeachment, meaning we’d need anywhere from 13 to 20 Republicans to join those Democrats in voting to convict.
Do you think that’ll happen?
While it’s true there are some flakes out there saying as many as 35 Republicans would vote to convict, I just don’t buy it.
None of this hurts Trump.
I think it helps him. I think it’s a gift, one that’ll keep on giving until November 2020.
Biden is now a non-factor. Isn’t it interesting how the corporate media just tells us there is no proof of corruption, and we’re supposed to buy it? Most Americans are too stupid to question that.
Pocahontus will now take the lead in the polls, and maybe she’ll even be the nominee.
Trump will cream her in a landslide.
Trump’s going to cream anyone in a landslide, so let’s not even waste time talking about that. Aside from the rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth leftists, most Americans know the Democratic Party has abandoned whatever guiding principles it once had in an attempt to fashion itself as a perpetual minority Party that caters to weak and vacillating identities.
And then we have Montana.
My God, what a mess.
We don’t have enough workers!
So bad is it now that we have to import Filipinos to teach our rural school kids. Some service industry businesses are closing because they can’t find workers.
Sadly, many of our youngest workers are wasting years of their lives and spending tens of thousands of dollars to be indoctrinated with leftist ideas.
Here in Missoula a once proud university has been brought to its knees, with the worst student enrollment decline in the nation.
I feel sorry for the kids that go to UM, and every chance I get I encourage people not to attend.
Why pay $10,000 a year to be filled with communist and socialist ideas from some egghead that couldn’t hack it in the real world? Do we need to keep padding the pockets of these aging losers? And what about the dolts in Admin? $100,000 a year for those schmucks?
With all this education we’ve gotten, it’s amazing how stupid we Americans are.
I hate to comment so much on my own backyard, but here in Missoula the liberals actually think that creating new taxes is the answer to our currently high taxes.
These people are stupid.
And don’t ask them about specifics.
Don’t ask them how they’ll get a sales tax through - we now call it a “tourist tax” here in the Berkeley of the North - because they don’t know.
The current idea is for the Missoula liberals to lobby the Montana Legislature, which is controlled by conservatives.
This didn’t work at all last session, but if at first you don’t succeed…
So let’s say by some miracle they succeed, and the RINOs in the legislature side with the liberals and let Missoula and other places have their sales tax.
This wouldn’t happen until April 2021, at which point you’d need Governor Gianforte to sign it into law.
I don’t see him raising any taxes during his first year in office, and probably his first term.
But let’s say he does sign it.
Then the issue goes to voters in November 2021...though maybe the Dems would try and get it for the 2022 vote, as they might see this off-year as more favorable (you know they’re going to spend record amounts to try and take back Congress to act as some kind of bulwark against Trump’s second term).
Then let’s say voters actually approve of a new tax. I doubt it’d go into effect before the following summer, which could be either June 2022 or 2023.
That’s three to four years from now.
Yep, the Missoula liberal agenda for solving the high tax situation they created is to throw a Hail Mary pass that won’t be caught until several years from now, if at all.
What’s plan B?
There is none.
Just as there’s no plan for what to do when this latest impeachment stir crashes and burns.
What thin and dangling straw will Democrats grasp at then, I wonder.
Notice we haven’t heard anything about Russian collusion, lately. My, that was all the rage just a short time ago.
I guess there was nothing there.
Imagine if Congress actually did some work instead of playing around all day.
- 75% of Americans hate Congress and think the $175,000 a year paid hacks that ‘work’ there are losers.
- 53% of Americans hate Trump. He gets paid $400,000 a year, but donates all of it to various government agencies.
- Here in Montana we pay our governor $111,000 a year. He got 50.2% of the vote to get his second term, and then immediately began running for president.
He’s ‘officially’ been running for nearly 5 months now, and has yet to crack 1% in the various polls.
He might as well stay in the clown car, even if he’s no longer allowed in the debates. Remember how Kasich began to look good to many three years ago, just because he stayed in so long? But like I said, Trump’s winning in a landslide.
I don’t seen Gianforte losing to Fox in the primary next year. I suspect if Gianforte wins then Knudsen will, too. Fox and Bennion are too ‘tied-at-the-hip’ for one to win without the other. I hate to say it, as I think Bennion would be a fine AG.
Rosendale will likely be the nominee for House. It’ll be an easy win over Kathleen Williams. I doubt he’ll break a sweat.
There’s no point in talking about the Senate race. So far there’s a black refugee and a man that killed someone with his campaign rollout. It’ll be an easy win for Daines.
Trump’s victory next year will ensure all top-tier races go to the GOP here in Montana, and the legislature will go that way as well.
Lots of Democrats here are worried about the Gianforte agenda, thinking it’ll ruin the state.
So far Gianforte is calling for a no-growth budget, and the legislature will give that to him. I’m sure there’ll be some cultural issues as well that get through, but these affect such a small percentage of the population that most people won’t care.
It’ll be interesting to see how the rabid leftists and their corporate media try to define the narrative.
Currently here in Montana, if you want to work you can find a job. People have money. Things are going well.
