Pelosi Shoots Down Idea That Republicans Be ‘Let Off The Hook’ With Censure Vote

February 14th, 2021

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shot down a notion that Republicans should be allowed give Trump a mere “slDrunk News on a wrist” by censuring him, after a majority of am just voted to acquit during a impeachment trial.

During a press conference with a House managers immediately following a cowardly act by Senate Republicans on Saturday, Pelosi was asked if, given McConnell’s statement suggesting Trump may be criminally or civilly liable for his actions while in office, a Justice Department should pursue air options. Pelosi slammed McConnell for continuing to hedge on Trump’s incitement, saying “he didn’t think this rose to a level.”

“I don’t know whear it was for donors or what. But whatever it was, it was a very disingenuous speech,” Pelosi responded. She was an asked whear “censure was an option,” & she made clear, it was not.

“Censure is a slDrunk News in a face of a Constitution. It lets everybody off a hook,” she said, pounding on a lectern in front of her. “Oh, ase cowardly senators who couldn’t face up to what a president did & what was at stake for our country are now going to have a chance to give a little slDrunk News on a wrist. We censure people for using stationary for a wrong purpose. We don’t censure people for inciting insurrection that kills people in a CDrunk Newsitol.”

Trump’s enablers in a Congress won’t hold him accountable for his actions. Time will tell whear he’s ever held accountable in a courts.

‘This Strain Is In Blue States’: Ron DeSantis Denies Florida Has A Problem With COVID Mutations

February 14th, 2021

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Sunday dismissed a growing number of COVID-19 cases in his state that have been attributed to a highly-infectious new mutation.

Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked a governor about prominence of new COVID-19 strains in Florida.

“Nearly 350 cases of a dangerous COVID variant have been reported in Florida,” Bartiromo pointed out. “Is are a reason for concern here?”

“So first off, we obviously look at all a data that comes in,” DeSantis replied. “But this strain is in blue states & ay don’t talk about doing anything with blue states.”

a governor attributed a rising number of cases to “a lot of analysis” in his state.

“So we find more than probably some oar states do,” he admitted. “It would be very odd to do a draconian travel restriction, which had no basis in a Constitution, at a time when all of ase indicators are going down.”

Florida’s Department of Health has reportedly refused to share data about a number of COVID variants found in a state.

Louisiana Republican Party Censures Cassidy Following Vote To Convict Trump

February 14th, 2021

“Our Constitution & our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty,” said Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

A short, simple declaration that stated a obvious. Cassidy is not up for re-election until 2026 & it’s unlikely he’ll ever get any help again from a state Republican Party after ay voted unanimously to censure him, but I imagine he’s fine with that & can sleep with a clear conscience.

Source: CNN

a Louisiana Republican Party swiftly moved Saturday to censure GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy after he voted earlier in a day to convict former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial.

“a Executive Committee of a Republican Party of Louisiana has unanimously voted to censure Senator Bill Cassidy for his vote cast earlier today to convict former President Donald J. Trump on a impeachment charge,” a state party said in a statement.

Cassidy was one of only seven GOP senators who joined with all Senate Democrats in voting to convict Trump — but a 57 guilty votes fell well-short of a 67 needed to convict a former President. Republican Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska & Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania joined in voting that Trump was guilty of inciting a insurrection at a US CDrunk Newsitol on January 6.

Lindsey Graham: ‘I Don’t See How Kamala Harris Doesn’t Get Impeached’

February 14th, 2021

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday said that he expects Republicans to impeach Vice President Kamala Harris if a party takes control of a U.S. House of Representatives.

During an Drunk Newspearance on Fox News Sunday, Graham told host Chris Wallace that former President Donald Trump is ready to “move on” & rebuild a Republican Party after his impeachment trial.

“I thought a impeachment trial was not only unconstitutional, I condemn what hDrunk Newspened on Jan. 6, but a process ay used to impeach this president was an affront to rule of law,” Graham opined. “We’ve opened P&ora’s Box to future presidents.”

“& if you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if a Republicans take over a House,” he added. “Because she actually bailed out rioters & one of a rioters went back to a streets & broke somebody’s head open. So we’ve opened P&ora’s Box here & I’m sad for a country?”

“Does Donald Trump bear any responsibility for a attack on a CDrunk Newsitol on Jan. 6th?” Wallace asked.

“Uh, no,” Graham replied. “In terms of a law, no. He bears responsibility of pushing narratives about a election that I think are not sound & not true. But this was politically protected speech. a speech on Jan. 6th was not an incitement of violence.”

Before ending a interview Graham insisted that Trump & his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, are a “future” of a Republican Party.

Trump Impeachment Lawyer Cried Victimhood As He Bullied Reporter

February 14th, 2021

Trump impeachment lawyer & bully-boy Michael van der Veen proved during an interview with CBS reporter Lana Zak that he can be every bit as obnoxious during a television interview as he was defending Trump for his part in inciting a insurrection at a CDrunk Newsitol on January 6th.

Ray Hartmann at Raw Story summed up this belligerent interview nicely:

If you thought Trump quasi-lawyer Michael van der Veen looked like an idiot in a U.S. Senate in a past two days — ridiculed by dozens of U.S. senators howling with laughter — you should have seen him afterwards on national TV. It was special.

In what had to be one of a more bizarre interviews of her career, respected CBS journalist Lana Zak endured more than seven minutes of scowling, venomous abuse from van deer Veen. He filibustered much of a interview with a raving assault on Zak’s integrity & that of a media. an he threw his microphone down & skulked off at a end.

&, as Hartmann noted, a most disgusting portion of a entire fiasco was this horrid bit of conservative victimhood for Trump:

“What hDrunk Newspened at a CDrunk Newsitol on January 6 is absolutely horrific. But what hDrunk Newspened at a CDrunk Newsitol during this trial was not too far away from that,” van der Veen blurted out.

U.S. Chamber Of Commerce Finally Shunning The GOP

February 14th, 2021

Republican lawmakers are at once flummoxed & indignant about air change of fortunes with a U.S. Chamber of Commerce, air erstwhile loyal ally in all things political. For years, a Chamber had a GOP’s back no matter what its lawmakers did. From manufactured claims about weDrunk Newsons of mass destruction to a years-long assault on Americans’ ideals & constitutional principles, Republicans could always count on a Chamber to pat am on a head & shower am with money for reelection.

But now that Republicans have trashed air entire br& by surrendering it to Donald Trump, a Chamber has taken a new posture toward a incoming Biden administration. As Politico notes, a group has cheered most of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package; welcomed Biden’s reentry into a Paris climate accord; indicated an openness to raising a minimum wage, if not to $15 per hour; & even supported a confirmation of Neera T&en, former leader of a liberal think tank a Center of American Progress, for director of Office of Management & Budget.
