In wake of the media nonsense, and the mistaken information being spread regarding the Impeachment of Donald Trump from the office of President. I felt the need to write something clear and simple regarding Impeachment proceedings...
I Don't Think So...
by Susan Nielsen
Due to the fact that Lame Main Stream news and Fanatical Fascists, seem to want to perpetuate the preposterous idea that President Trump is going to be Impeached -which of course is Utter Nonsense! Hogwash! And Bullshit!
First Let's clear up a few LEGAL Issues...
Donald Trump, has NOT been CONVICTED of ANYTHING! Nothing! No Wrong Doing! NO One is guilty by mere association!
I want to get this straight right from the beginning, because if Fascists/Communists keep posting False/Fake Information- they just appear ignorant!!
They cannot manipulate the outcome of the 2020 Elections with nothing but nonsense! and that is exactly what this is all about!
From the Constitution of the United States of America,
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
ARTICLE II, SECTION 4
None of the above has occurred.
First, let's clear up some of the general public's lack of knowledge regarding impeachments
Impeachment in the Constitution
Federal impeachment. The number of federal officials impeached by the House of Representatives includes two presidents: Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton; both were later acquitted by the Senate. ... To date, no president has been removed from office by impeachment and conviction.
Please note-“NO President has been removed from Office by Impeachment and Conviction”
See the word Convicted, he must be convicted.
Excerpt from Findlaw.com
The involuntary removal of a sitting President of the United States has never occurred in our history. The only legal way such can be accomplished is by the impeachment process. This article discusses the legal standard to be properly applied by members of the U.S. House of Representatives when voting for or against Articles of Impeachment, and members of the U.S. Senate when voting whether to convict and remove from office a President of the U.S., as well as the procedure to be followed.
Article I § 2 of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach (make formal charges against) and Article I § 3 gives the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. Article II § 4 of the Constitution provides as follows:
"The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."
Thus, the operative legal standard to apply to an impeachment of a sitting President is "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."
Excerpt from Heritage Foundation
As finally agreed, a majority vote of the House of Representatives is required to bring impeachment charges (Article I, Section 2, Clause 5), which are then tried before the Senate (Article I, Section 3, Clause 6). Two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict before an official can be removed. The President may not pardon a person who has been impeached (Article II, Section 2, Clause 1). If an official is impeached by the House and convicted by the requisite vote in the Senate, then Article I, Section 3, Clause 7, provides that the person convicted is further barred from any "Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States." The convicted official also loses any possible federal pensions. With a few exceptions, those impeached and removed have generally faded into obscurity.
Convicted of High Crimes and Misdemeanors
Because "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" was a term of art used in English impeachments, a plausible reading supported by many scholars is that the grounds for impeachment can be not only the defined crimes of treason and bribery, but also other criminal or even noncriminal behavior amounting to a serious dereliction of duty. That interpretation is disputed, but it is agreed by virtually all that the impeachment remedy was to be used in only the most extreme situations, a position confirmed by the relatively few instances in which Congress has used the device.

I'm afraid that there are many, many Americans who do not have access to the truth Suzie. The Leftist Fascists are in total control of most of the media, and virtually all the education in America. It's difficult with the continual onslaught of fake news, lies, and diabolical deception for many voters not to become frustrated and disillusioned right now, and I'm afraid things in those categories aren't getting any better. We need wealthy Conservatives to start buying into and controlling much of the media, and need to do it soon. I am afraid we are losing our Republic and the downhill is getting steeper by the day. Not so much because of their control, but because they control so much.
Jerome, I hear you loud and clear! And unfortunately, an underlying "whisper" of fear that is being fueled right along with it... so some are just plain afraid to speak up and I believe we have some who have gone back into what I call the Coma of Apathy and some are just plain tired...
I have lost nearly all of my friends... but were they really? I feel like Odd man Out in my community... I have my family and few of my best buds... but what this diversity (caused by Obummer) has done is absolutely transforming America as we now know it...
Then again... Maybe We need to Remember Paul Revere...
Before 2008, WE DIDN'T HVE TO WATCH OUR "P'S AND Q'S"..... then along came Cultural Marxism and Political Correctness, and liberals jumped all over it to club ANYONE that did not think and act like they did......labeling became the voodoo of conservatives..... and they have not had the courage of their convictions, to challenge liberals and attack them with the same fervor, as liberals.... so, during a decade we have had to endure the shaming and blaming, the personal attacks, and the violence.... when will we ever wake up?..... one thing for sure.... liberals DO NOT LIKE TO BE LABELED HOMOPHOBES, MARXISTS, RACISTS, ISLAMOPHOBES, or anything else.... I see a little change from the Obama years when EVERYONE who was a liberal, Democrat, would go around beating up on people, indiscriminately, knowing that Obama and Holder would support them..... we still have to deal with ANTIFA and BLM..... but the "opposition" is organizing to take over whenever the police backs down......
You are correct, however I believe we are misconstruing Liberal with Fascist. Look up the word "liberalism", does it describe today's Democrat? I say no, there is miniscule or no sign of "liberalism" among the Democrat ranks of today. In actuality, there is no sign of "Democrat" in today's Democratic Party. They are fascists, plain and simple, as their rhetoric dictates their violent behavior. No, I'm sorry, but it is the Republicans that are now showing signs of the few good liberal aspects, and the Fascists hate that. Seriously, look up the word "Liberalism". You will not find even as inkling of "liberalism" in the ranks of these outspoken, unabashed Fascists. Now look up the word "Fascism", I'm sure you will see exactly what I mean. There is no Democrat Party in America, they have been infiltrated and are now controlled by fascists. i.e., ANTIFA, BLM, OCCUPY and RESIST, are all the new Fascist Nazis.
Jerome, you are right on in that... yes I am way to loose with the word Liberal... it worked with Loco... but I do agree that's why I say "because if Liberals/Progressives/Communists ... because I really want to just call them as you say Fascist Communists... that's what they are. Our Country is disappearing and changing so much right before our eyes...makes me so angry and so very sad...
Suzie, we've all been to loose with referring to the Fascists as Liberal, in that regard we're all guilty. We need to see the forest and not just the trees. We need, for our own survival and that of this Republic to call a spade a spade. It is impossible to defeat an enemy without first recognizing what and who the enemy is. Make no mistake the Leftist Fascists are the enemy of every America loving citizen.
I edited the article to correct the name of the enemy, Thanks for reminding me to call a spade a spade...
I agree with your point.
I was pretty uninterested in everything politics until I became aware of 'progressives' and had the epiphany that they aren't 'liberal' at all and are essentially against every principle this country was founded on and fully intend to eliminate our once honorable principled culture through infiltration of government - originally I was thinking through the D party. It took living in the progressive demon's den Austin for quite a while to grab my attention to that. Then for the first time I got interested in politics vs. only interested in our culture. Then after awhile it became obvious that their government infiltration wasn't limited to the D party, they had saturated both of the major political parties.
This is why I'm like your post here, and contend that using the word liberal is incorrect - and mis-identifies the enemy of our country and our intended way of life. They aren't liberals at all, or even only Ds.
Larry, You will be happy to know I took Jerome's words to heart and have correctly named the enemy in my article! I am glad you helped me make my decision...
When Bill Clinton became Governor of Arkansas, the first thing he did was buy the news media, then the courts...… the Whitewater and banking deals with the Koreans were all Hillary's "projects"....Bill and his brother controlled the coke traffic between Little Rock, Memphis, Fayetteville, Mena, and parts within this triangle of drugs.....and, every crime was covered.....http://prorev.com/connex.htm
I am concerned. I hope you folks can read the document I am pointing you to. Document is dated from 2017 but clearly the plan is being carried out.
Pat, I just read the document. One thing for sure, it (the plan) is being implemented to the fullest. Yes, it is of great concern because many have read this document, but only the sane will find it troubling as we do. This nation is divided almost 50-50, but the Republic is another thing. The Leftist Fascists who refuse to accept the duly elected President, are not members of this Constitutional Republic, they have for all intents and purposes seceded from it. It is their agenda to shut down all reason and all logic and all of us who would take a stand against them. There will be a fight, mark my words. There must be a fight or we and our Constitution and all America stands for is already lost.
