    For only the third time in history, the House of Representatives has formally impeached the President of the United States.

    It's a good day for America. Unfortunately I'm not very hopeful any Senate Republicans will grow a spine and choose country over party.

    This day indeed will go down in history and the Democrats will be regarded favorably for their actions. It may take a generation for the Republicans to come to terms. It may be their children and grandchildren who will judge their actions more harshly.

    I enjoyed drinking a beer watching the votes, but I note that Speaker Pelosi wore black and there were no celebrations by Democrats on the House floor. That says a lot about Speaker Pelosi.

    This is nothing more than a “moral victory” that wasted a lot of money, & time. It will cost the Dems an incredible amount of Congressional seats, & Trump will easily retain the Presidency for a second term. As a Republican all I can say is thank you Nancy Pelosi, Schiff Stain, & the rest of their Democrat CoolAid drinkers........They literally gave Trump (landslide style) another 4 more years. Plus, Trump has 3-4x’s the amount of campaign money than all his Democrat opponents campaign funding combined. Trump will win without breaking a single sweat....Guaranteed!!! Historically, this will go down as one of the most epic bipartisan failures in U.S. history.

    Bipartisan failure? I believe it's time for you to return to school, or go to school and learn what words mean. If you really mean bipartisan failure, then that could be true because the failure would be on the part of the GOP, which in the future years will be viewed as being just as crooked, just as big a liar as Trump by voters, who will believe that republican lawmakers are like groundhogs who saw their shadow and ducked back into their holes and hid from the truth, and that Trump is not only a liar like they are, but also shred the constitution when it suits their needs.

    partisan, a noun: a strong supporter of a party, cause, or person.

    bipartisan, adjective: involving the agreement or cooperation of two political parties that usually oppose each other's policies.

    This website isn't like all the other sites which do not allow you to go back to your post and rewrite and edit your posts, this website is primarily for left leaning folks, but we admire other opinions, no matter how flawed they might be. That's the big difference between liberals and conservatives, conservatives are hard liners, and liberals forgive, even if it means giving a little.

    The democrats in the House of Reps. did what they thought was necessary under the laws and the constitution of America. It's called checks and balances. Nobody is above the law, not even king Trump.

    If you want to talk about wasting money, look within your own party for that.

    Dockadams -- Well said. We have discussed Trump supporters in this website on many occasions. To do that we have to revert to analyses and articles by psychologists, psychiatrists and social scientists. Not only will Trump be the subject of many more articles in Psychology Today for decades, but much like the German population following World War II, the intense subject of psychological analysis will be the Trump supporters, delving into their genetic make-up, intelligence, tribalism and sense of morality in trying to understand: "What were they thinking?"

    Bobby Azarian, PhD, Psychology Today, December 27, 2018: A Complete Psychological Analysis of Trump's Support

    Maybe Sig Sauer, who claims to be a Financial Markets Analyst, could browse through Dr. Azarian's list of psychological traits of the Trump supporter to identify those that best fit him. There is not one single trait that fits all. Trump has accumulated a coalition of religious nuts, gun nuts, racists, nationalists, ignorant gullible, militants, and corporatists. Their cognitive dissonance in unable to see the true facts presented is intriguing and baffling, especially as it applies to the educated amongst them, and I assume that Sig Sauer is educated if he is a financial markets analyst. What is missing is perhaps his sense of morality in that he can cling to Trump with such savagery that he just had to come on this website to express his prejudiced views. Or is it just the money as he alluded to in his post?

    PS -- I wrote this before reading Sig Sauer's other post. He is apparently a gun lover as well -- marketing and selling guns to make money...a lethal combination. In some websites it's called "blood money" and as I noted in Sauer's other post, the Sig Sauer brand is listed under blood money. I think Sig Sauer may be a phony and has just borrowed that corporate name.

    Just another un-educated troll; fits exactly the Hitler Jugend as well the idiots who killed themselves in Guyana; it is this type of "cult' which makes this country an parasite in the world. The standing of this country in the world is now already sunk to its lowest level ever, Sorry there is nowhere in the world an "second amendment"; except here, which is even wrongly interpreted by the zillion lawyers here; may be this "troll" should read it for a change; it says the "militia" can have an "musket"; nowhere it says you can have an AR 15 etc. or be an "civilian".

    Thanks to the stupidity on this country to refuse to make the "base law" an "living document" which should be updated daily as other civilized countries do. Not as here, only less than about 150 amendments in 300 years.

    Putin got himself into the "game" and said that Trump will get his second term. So he must "know something" Let the "games" begin. Trump himself does not seems to be worried and just keeps screaming nonsense. McConnell (his baby sitter) will help him win. Neither is there any effect in the "stock market" today; which is acting if nothing is happening at all. Only McNuchin was on CNBC talking on how an "great" deal? the China and USMCA is. Sorry China has an different opinion and will only import what they want or need; it does not accept an total "value" of goods. But yeah here there are totally incompetent to understand such..

    The deficit will only increase and Trump and his family will keep spending like crazy. But what does McNuchin care?

    Thus coming New Year will be an continuing chaos with the help of the King and "turtle head"

    It would appear that Nancy Pelosi and Moscow Mitch are in a bit of a stand-off. Pelosi is holding back on submitting the impeachment verdict and paperwork to the Senate for trial until McConnell has assured Democrats that the Senate trial will be fair. Right now McConnell only cares about taking care of Trump in the process. A speedy trial with no witnesses.

    It could drag well into the New Year.

    Yes Schmidt, it looks more and more like Trump and Mc Connell are cohorts in subversion of justice.

    Not submitting the formal impeachment legislative paperwork to the Senate until after the New Year has some definite pluses. Already the popular Christian magazine, Christianity Today, has published a scathing editorial in support of Trump's impeachment and removal from office.

    CT: Trump Should Be Removed from Office

    "The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.

    "The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration. He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone—with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders—is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused."

    =======================================================

    So Christians can discuss this impeachment over Christmas. As CT has summarized: "That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments."

    Wow those are "fighting words" for Trump and his ilk. Evangelicals voted by a an 81 percent majority for Trump in 2016, but that number currently has fallen to something like 75 percent. It will be interesting to see how they feel once the Senate starts the trial and they have to "search their souls" on their views of Trump. However, I don't think Louis Gohmert has a soul to search.

    Schmidt:

    I agree with you that Gohmert probably does not have a soul. The problem, though, is that he lives in one of the most conservative districts in Texas, and got 74% of the vote in his last (and 7th ) campaign.

    He belongs to one of the largest Baptist congregations in the country, and he serves as both a deacon, in addition to teaching Sunday school.

    He's got a lot of crazy ideas, but the voters don't care because he is a "man of God".

    Like I've said many times"religion" is the curse of humanity ; this proves it again. What did religion do for this world; did it make this tiny globe and humans any better and more civilized. I know the answer.

    The House has formally submitted Articles of Impeachment against Donald to the Senate with Congressman Adam Schiff reading them into the record from the well of the Senate.

    Donald's trial starts Tuesday, 1/21/2020.

    I wished I had cable/satellite television, so I could watch on CSPAN, I'll get my news briefings from Lester Holt on NBC nightly news. I wonder which senators will be disruptive and out of order first? Lindsey Graham?

    I just hope the whole nation watches like they have never watched before. So many of them have been tuned out or captivated by the Trump Propaganda Channel (Fox News) that it may be a shock to watch, especially if witnesses are allowed to testify. The two words "cognitive dissonance" will then become the most often mentioned cognitive bias that journalists will discuss. How can they (the Republicans) not see or accept the facts right in front of them? Or maybe they just don't care.
