The democrats are clearly demonstrating that they are unable to learn from the past! "They did it so we should too!" Not that the absolute "don't give a shit" about impeachment by the American voters really hit home with them. They let Trump get under their skin and now they are going to pay for it.

A democrat elected president in 2020 is a scary thought. Democrats are so fragmented with so many special interest groups, the republicans wouldn't even need to do anything to have legislature stagnate. That whiny little teenage angst environmentalist person of the year would do a better job as speaker of the house than Pelosi. If Hillary wasn't still around, she'd be #1 on my hate list.

The United States is a Republic, not a Democracy. Republic/Republican Democracy/Democrat. Lets keep the U.S. what it was meant to be!

If I was Trump, I'd want them to drag out this impeachment bullshit all next year. It's only helping him. Trump wanted to investigate a corrupt politician. A politician a lot of clowns might vote for in 2020. Oh the horror! Lets see...someone using power to investigate a politician who has already used his power for corruption. Where's my application for my no experience $60K/month advisory board job in a corrupt country?

What's funny is Biden wants $60K/year minimum pay for teachers. I can see his logic. "If my son can get $60K/month with zero experience in the Ukraine, our teachers deserve at least that much for an entire year!" What a fucking joke.

(CNN)President Donald Trump couldn't have dreamed of a better scenario surrounding this week's impeachment vote than the one that will play out sometime over the next 48 hours (or so): New Jersey Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew will switch parties due to his opposition to impeachment.

Van Drew was one of only two Democrats to vote against formalizing an impeachment inquiry into Trump and, as recently as last week, made clear he planned to vote against the articles of impeachment.
Democrats are so dead-set on impeachment that it's driving moderates right out of the party. And that's a message that will resonate with his base, sure, but also potentially with a public that has grown increasingly skeptical about whether the President should be impeached and removed.

For the first time in months, those opposing impeachment and removal now slightly edge out those in support those moves, according to Real Clear Politics polling average. That average includes two national polls released Monday that show more people oppose impeachment/removal than support it.

Amazingly the source is Trump hating CNN. Well that can't be good!

Warning lights are flashing for Democrats as they impeach Trump

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

Updated 8:59 PM ET, Wed December 18, 201

(CNN)The House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress -- both tied to his actions around a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky.

But there's growing evidence that the public impeachment proceedings may actually be helping Trump politically.

Take a new Gallup poll released Wednesday morning, before the House vote, which shows two things happening since House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, opened up a formal impeachment inquiry in October regarding Trump's conduct with Zelensky:

1) Trump's job approval rating has gone from 39% to 45%

2) Support for Trump's impeachment and removal has dipped from 52% to 46%.

Those results largely affirm other data out over the past week or so that suggest support for impeachment has dipped. In a CNN national poll released earlier this week, 45% said they supported the impeachment and removal of the President -- down from 50% who said the same in a mid-November CNN survey. That same poll showed opposition to impeachment/removal at 46%, up 4 points from mid-November. And a CNN "poll of polls" -- an average of all six most recent quality/credible national polling conducted between December 4 and December 15 -- showed 46% favored impeachment and removal as compared to 49% who did not.
morons

Pelosi said this impeachment must be bipartisan. It was 100% partisan. Zero Republicans voted to impeach and a few Democrats broke with their party to not impeach. What a complete joke.

Yeah. The joke is that there are zero Republicans with a backbone. The problem is the joke isn't fucking funny.

And now Pelosi is not sending the articles of Impeachment to the senate, delaying it immediately being shot down. So this drags out as long as Pelosi feels like it, wasting time. What a circus. She's making it even worse as Trumps approval numbers climb. Hope she hangs on to it through all of next year.

Hope the democrats lose the house majority. Attacking someone because you're butthurt is never better than providing a better solution for the future. Huge backfire.

The Trump administration is set to scrap protections for America's streams and wetlands, repealing Barack Obama's Waters of the United States regulation.

The move, expected Thursday, will dismantle federal protections for more than half of wetlands and hundreds of small waterways in the US.

The White House says the change will be a victory for American farmers.

But critics say the change will be destructive - part of Mr Trump's wider assault on environmental protections.

Under the new regulations, landowners and property developers will be able to pour pesticides, fertilizers and other pollutants directly into millions of miles of the nation's waterways for the first time in decades.
Clean water.. Who needs it?
