Goodness gracious people... it is OK not to like a president of the united states of america but when you start comparing him with hitler and pol pot don't you think you are taking it a little to the extreme?
The founding fathers may not have wanted an omnipotent president, but did they want every president that hinted at being anti war impeached?
Lets face it... his crime is not being anti Russia enough and being soft on wars that have nothing to do with the collective safety of Americans, but everything to do with the the bank balances of a very few Americans...
the United States Congress feel absolutely no shame about supporting one of the most venal, racist, corrupt, mendacious, megalomaniacal, and divisive demagogues to ever serve as president
I think you are seriously underestimating the competition... both in the sense of previous presidents, and the alternative at the time of the vote...
And as for the rest, what a load of old toss... perhaps what the Americans need instead of the shit they have is a real democracy where there are actually more than two political parties offering different things instead of two shades of the brown smelly stuff they have learned to offer... comes out the same as it went in BTW...
In today's world, we hear a great deal about terrorism. Terrorism is often defined as using violent means to overthrow or destroy a system of government.
Defines US international relations for the last few hundred years...
People who believe they are above the law.
Ironic that intelligence agencies that seem to support the democrats prove what you are saying, but not what you are meaning... you are trying to blame all of americas problems on trump when all of its problems started long ago.
Trump is an idiot, but his primary crime is to do out in the open what used to be done behind closed doors in private. With these dealings out in the open we get a much more real picture of the US in international affairs from the last century or two... and it really does not live up to the picture america tries to paint of itself through hollywood and its media...
In fact, a Senate leader who will oversee these removal proceedings is actually working with the White House to ensure Trump's removal, no matter how deserved, does not happen.
Wow... a partisan Senator... a bit like the partisan congressman that voted for impeachment no matter what the evidence was... doesn't that count as balance?
It is certainly a logical result of a two party system that you are running there... call them democrat and republican or south and north...
Even novice attorneys know that prospective jurors who openly admit to favoring one side over the other are routinely dismissed, and if prosecutors and defense attorneys were caught rigging a trial by working together for a desired outcome, they would face disbarment and potentially other sanctions as well.
But novice attorneys also know that actual law and actual morality have nothing to do with this and impeaching a president for asking for the illegal activities of a political rival to be investigated... in other words asking for due process and laws to apply to presidental candidates and their families so criminals don't get a chance to enter the white house is just wrong too.
But if terrorism is too strong a word to describe what is happening in today's America (though I submit it is not), I have another: FOOLISHNESS.
Well comparing a moderately successful US businessman with a fake tan and terrible hair as being like Hitler or Pol Pot is how you started so calling America the seat of terrorism is a great way to conclude that the rest of the world should not give a fuck... I mean it was under Obama that such a thing as moderate terrorists was created as a concept... I guess it is like the IRA... murdering people at random with bombs but for freedom... right?
But now that will be one of Trumps crimes now too...
What could be more foolish than to have members of the Legislative Branch dilute their own power to strengthen the power of Trump and give him an unchecked license to not only ignore any laws this Branch passes, but also to obstruct any and all investigations into his criminality.
The power of the senate is not effected by the decisions it makes... except if it sets the precedent that presidents that wont sign up to go to war get impeached... which is clearly what you are demanding.
Politicians, unfortunately, are incessantly unable to see beyond the next election, so this foolishness is not surprising.
Whereas reporters print what their paymasters tell them to print... don't burn the hand that feeds... keep that war money coming or else...
But those who can see beyond the end of their noses are not oblivious to the dangerous precedent this will set. Trump's acquittal will mean that every president who follows will be able to invoke this unchecked license, and what Trump's Republican supporters in Congress fail to think about is that some of these future presidents will be Democrats.
Republicans can only see republicans and democrats can only see democrats... you have your system... enjoy because it wont change any time soon politicians are not know collectively for courage.
They just do what their financial backers tell them to and try to bullshit their way out with the voters...
is protecting Donald J. Trump, obstructionist extraordinaire, worth creating this precedent and destroying the effectiveness of the "check and balance" system for the rest of America's existence?
Ahhh fuck off... whether Trump is impeached or not the sun will continue to rise in the morning and the rain will continue to fall... even if he is impeached he might not even have to leave office and might even be re-elected... because honestly I doubt voters could give a shit about these so called crimes.
Bill Clintons crimes... adultery... in the oval office... and then bold faced lying to everyone about it for ages is far worse than anything I have seen Trump even accused of... and trump is an idiot and changes what he says on a regular basis via twitter of all venues.
After the constitution was created, Benjamin Franklin was asked, "What have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"
To which Franklin replied, "A republic if you can keep it."
Was one wearing a full body cloak and wheezing, while the other was wearing black body armour and both had light sabres?
Not no mention of democracy BTW...
American people are too stupid for that sort of power and control... it is not their destiny...
How ironic that, without a shot being fired and in the absence of a conquering foreign enemy, the Republic is about to be destroyed, all because a corrupt cabal of myopic, self-serving, amoral politicians are more than willing to place the creation of the monarchy of Donald J. Trump before the good of the nation.
Well at least you are not going to over react about it... I mean do you say such nice things when you go to the UK... they have a monarchy and their democracy is in the shit too... they are voting for idiots because they are afraid of the alternatives, and they too have a two party electoral system and have the choice of cow shit or dog shit every election... makes you proud to be british/american.
BTW also on that website is an article with this title:
"Siberia to separate from Russia to become a part of USA".
Please don't post this shit here in future.
