For months, Nancy Pelosi insisted that the crisis at the border was either “manufactured” or the byproduct of President Trump’s bad policies. Truthfully, it wasn’t either. The crisis wasn’t just predictable. It was predicted.

Back in March of this year, then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified in front of the House Homeland Security Committee. At that time, Secretary Nielsen said “We face a crisis, a real, serious, and sustained crisis at our borders. Make no mistake: this chain of human misery is getting worse.” She was met with skepticism from Bennie Thompson, the new chairman of the committee. At that March 6 hearing, Chairman Thompson said that “he wanted to use the hearing in part to give Nielsen the opportunity to start a “serious discussion,” rather than echoing President Donald Trump’s claims of a security crisis at the border” before adding that “real oversight over the border was long overdue.”

After months of lying to the American people, Ms. Pelosi has now issued a statement that’s dishonest to its core:

For the children’s health, we must ensure higher standards for medical care, nutrition and hygiene. For the children’s safety, we must limit the number of days a child can spend in an influx facility to 90 days, and hold contractors to strong influx facility standards of care. For the children’s well-being, we must compensate faith-based and non-profit organizations and local governments that are meeting the needs of children.

For the children’s comfort, we must establish a migrant processing center pilot program which is culturally, linguistically and religiously appropriate for families and children. For the children, we must ensure accountability and transparency so we can know the truth: requiring that any death of a child be reported within 24 hours, that there be no advance notice required for a Member of Congress to visit a facility and that funding can only be used for the purposes specifically described in the bill.

Remember this golden oldie?

She wasn’t worried about “the children” back then. She was only worried about 800,000 government workers. The children were, at best, an afterthought. Now that it’s inescapable that we’ve got a legitimate crisis, Pelosi is doing the best she can to limit the political damage to her majority. The truth is that she only acts when she’s out of options politically. That isn’t an American value. That’s typical Democrat skullduggery.

There’s an old saying that reads like this: “Democrats will always do the right thing — when it’s the only option left.” Putting in a basket full of poison pills into the House bill helped it pass with a virtually partisan vote.

Speaker Pelosi isn’t a patriot. She’s a skunk in fancy clothes. She’s failed the trustworthy test more times than I care to count. If you want corrupt government that only acts when there’s a crisis, then vote for Democrats. If you want responsive (for the most part) that actually attempts to get ahead of a problem, then voting Republican is imperative. It’s that simple.

This shocking article should frighten and outrage every thoughtful American. It’s a story of how little Democrats care about securing our border, protecting our people and how much they hate President Trump.

For instance, the article reports “Rosalio Ramos-Ramos was arrested last January for murder and dismembering his victim. It happened just months after Ramos was released from a Washington jail despite ICE’s request for an immigration detainer and notification of his pending release, neither of which were honored.”

This victim’s blood is on the Democrats’ hands. Period. Had ICE’s detainer been honored, this victim would still be alive. The Democrats’ attitude is offensive. This morning, I wrote this post that quoted Speaker Pelosi. Here’s what she said:

This week, the House will advance strong border legislation, which protects vulnerable children and keeps America safe as it honors our values. Congress continues to insist that families belong together and for immigrant communities to know their rights.

What a pile of BS. If Democrats want us to believe that their “values” include letting alleged murderers run free while providing sanctuary to these alleged monsters, Democrats should just say so. Those aren’t America’s values. In fact, I’d doubt that a majority of Democrats would agree that those are their values.

In that videotape, Pelosi decries the families that are getting separated at the border. Notice that heartless bitch, aka Pelosi, didn’t mention this criminal and this victim:

ICE also cites the case of Mexican national Martin Gallo-Gallardo, who was in a Clackamas County Oregon jail. The statement said jail officials ignored ICE’s request for an immigration detainer and notification of release. Gallardo was released and within months was re-arrested, this time for allegedly murdering his wife.

Democrats wear their love for sanctuary cities and sanctuary states as a badge of honor. They whine about separating law-breakers but don’t give a damn about families that are forever separated from their families because alleged murderers have killed their families. Democrats are a bunch of heartless bastards because they don’t care when sanctuary cities and states protect violent criminals but don’t protect law-abiding citizens.

Ms. Pelosi and Democrats, is it an American value to let violent criminals run free? Ms. Pelosi and Democrats, is it an American value to not protect law-abiding citizens? Jay Inslee, one of the cast of thousands of Democrats running for president this year, summed up the majority of DC Democrats’ opinion thusly:

We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up hard-working immigrant and refugee families.

Apparently, Gov. Inslee isn’t complicit in protecting the citizens of his state. Gov. Inslee, a Democrat, should be ashamed of himself. People in the Rust Belt and Great Lakes states won’t vote for politicians who won’t protect their citizens. Fortunately, the people in America’s Heartland have their priorities in order.

Finally, ‘moderate’ Democrats that don’t stand up to Pelosi, AOC and Ilhan Omar are worthless. If the moderates are squishes without character, then they don’t serve a useful purpose.

After reading Jazz Shaw’s post about Nancy Pelosi’s ‘plan’ on immigration, I find myself 8 shades of pissed off with the obstructionist Speaker. Our Constitution can’t work if both sides don’t work together. Ms. Pelosi (big surprise) isn’t interested in working together with anyone.

What she’s effectively done is started her own private government shutdown. She knows that the money budgeted for DHS is virtually dried up. Further, she knows that the money needed for supplies for detention centers is essentially gone. Now, CBP agents are bringing in supplies from home to take care of the children. The House bill is utterly neglectful of what this country needs:

There’s 934.5 million for processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, etc. $866 million would go to “reduce reliance on influx shelters to house children.” Another $200 million is allocated to develop an “integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program for families.”

That’s only part of it. It gets much worse. Check this BS out:

There’s another serious poison pill in the package as well. One provision would, “require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will be delivered to them without any reservation.”

Are you kidding me? So not only are we not fixing the loophole that’s allowing illegal aliens to grab a kid and use them as a passport to get into the country, but we’re going to advertise the loophole to all the migrants and codify it in law?

The next time a Democrat insists that they’re serious about border security, throw that information into their face. This is what people do if they hate America. Right now, there’s tons of proof that Democrats don’t like America much.

It’s time to throw Pelosi out as Speaker. She’s repeatedly proven that she isn’t interested in fixing problems. Further, she’s repeatedly proven that she wants to blow up the America that our Founding Fathers envisioned. Check this out from Pelosi’s statement on the House immigration bill:

The legislation protects families. It does not fund the Administration’s failed mass detention policy, but, instead, funds effective, humane alternatives to detention with a proven track record of success. It places strict limits on influx shelters, protects sponsors from DHS immigration enforcement based on information collected by HHS during the vetting process and creates strong oversight by Congress including to protect unaccompanied children.

In other words, the Democrats’ immigration bill will prevent DHS and HHS from collecting information on illegal immigrants during the vetting and processing processes.

The minute this bill is passed and sent to the Senate, the Senate should gut the poison pill parts of the bill and write the right bill. If Senate Democrats aren’t willing to stand up to Ms. Pelosi, they should be highlighted for defeat the next time they’re up for re-election.

Pelosi is a tyrant. She thinks that she’s the queen when it comes to controversial legislation. If Democrats won’t shut her down, then they’re utterly worthless. All of the spinmeisters’ talk about how many moderates got elected is foolish. Moderates who won’t stand up to a tyrant like Pelosi are moderates in name only. This is what a tyrant looks like:

She’s the personification of a tyrant. Here’s the definition of a tyrant:

  1. a sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly.
  2. any person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.

She needs to be thrown out. For that matter, House Democrats need to be thrown out of office. Since regaining control of the House, Democrats haven’t done anything to make Americans’ lives better. They’ve protected criminal aliens with ferocity. They’ve insisted on not protecting our borders. Democrats that tell you that they’re pro-border security are liars. Period.

Anyone that thinks that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s life was complicated before this week should read this article. After reading that article, they’ll realize that Rep. Omar’s life is just starting to get super-complicated.

According to the article, “Rep. Ilhan Omar swore under oath in a 2017 divorce filing that she hadn’t seen her husband Ahmed N. Elmi in six years and didn’t know anyone who might be able to locate him, yet he appears to have designed a website for Omar’s sister this year, according to data hidden in the source code of that website.” Anyone who thinks there’s a simple explanation for this that doesn’t involve extreme political complications and perhaps some criminal complications is kidding themselves.

That’s just the start of Rep. Omar’s difficulties, though. The article continues with this:

In arguing that she should be granted a divorce without her husband’s consent because he could not be located, she claimed that she did not know the name of a single member of her husband’s immediate family. She also claimed that her attempts to find him included unsuccessfully searching on social media but he has been on Twitter since 2012 and Facebook since 2007 and is also on LinkedIn and other platforms.

The odds of Rep. Omar not finding her hubby under his given name aren’t high. It’s impossible to think that she didn’t know her hubby’s screenname on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. That’s a 5-minute search on the slowed day in the history of the internet. Then there’s this:

Lying on a sworn form is perjury and each charge carries five years in prison, according to Minnesota law. Questions have been raised about the accuracy of approximately six statements on the sworn form.

If Speaker Pelosi’s Democrats protect Rep. Omar, they’ll suffer a gigantic defeat in November, 2020. Committing multiple felonies isn’t something the Ethics Committee should tolerate. That should draw an expulsion from the full House.

This should drive the proverbial final nail home:

I’m not a legal eagle but that looks a lot like a smoking gun. The other question left in all this is what lengths the Star Tribune will go to protect Rep. Omar. At this point, I’d hope they wouldn’t walk across the newsroom to help her.

In this opinion piece, former VP Joe Biden wrote that “We are a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.” He continued, saying “Our country is made up of hard-working, aspirational people from every culture, from every nation — and that is an indisputable strength. There’s no better example of the richness that’s possible when the United States is closely knit together with our neighbors in Latin America and the Caribbean than the city of Miami.”

After that, Sleepy Joe gets a little confusing. He said “That starts by recognizing that DREAMers are Americans, and Congress needs to make it official. The millions of undocumented people in the United States can only be brought out of the shadows through fair treatment, not ugly threats.” Which is it, Joe? Are we a nation of laws or are we supposed to ignore people that are now flooding into the US due to loopholes in our asylum laws? Those folks aren’t DREAMers. They’re an entirely new categorization of illegal immigrants.

Our asylum system needs to be improved, but the answer is to streamline and strengthen it so that it benefits legitimate claims of those fleeing persecution, while reducing potential for abuse.

Joe’s actually right for a change. Our asylum system needs to be improved. Why Biden doesn’t tell Democrats to get off their posteriors and help fix the problem is puzzling, though. Thus far, Democrats have done exactly nothing to fix that crisis. Then there’s this:

And it’s imperative that we secure our borders, but “Build the wall” is a slogan divorced from reality.

National security isn’t Joe’s strength. The MSM reports it to be but former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said “I think he’s been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue of over the past four decades.”

It won’t stop the flow of illegal narcotics or human trafficking, both of which come primarily through legal ports of entry. Nor will it stop asylum seekers fleeing the most desperate conditions imaginable and who have the right to have their cases heard. Nor will it stem the numbers of undocumented, most of whom overstay legal visas.

This isn’t difficult to translate. The Obama-Biden administration did virtually nothing to fix asylum laws. They didn’t build the wall, which is essential. (Joe says it isn’t. Israel says it’s highly successful. I’ll side with the Israelis.)

Under Trump, there have been horrifying scenes at the border of kids being kept in cages, tear-gassing asylum seekers, ripping children from their mothers’ arms — actions that subvert American values and erode our ability to lead on the global stage.

Joe, it isn’t President Trump’s fault that the MSM showed pictures of children in cages that were from the Obama-Biden administration. You, not President Trump, locked kids in cages:

Biden suffers from Democrat Syndrome. Its prominent tell-tale sign is the inability to tell the truth. That’s been a frequent problem with Joe. He’s a serial plagiarist. He’s campaigned by telling blacks that Mitt Romney wanted to “put y’all back in chains”:

The good news is that VP Biden isn’t the strongest frontrunner I’ve ever seen. Then again, he isn’t running against a strong group of candidates. This might be the worst list of presidential candidates that the Democrats have ever put forward.

It’s indisputable that the US is a nation of immigrants. What’s disputable is whether we’re a nation of laws anymore. It’s disputable because former FBI Director Jim Comey appropriated the authority given to the Attorney General. It’s disputable because the FBI used information that it knew was fraudulent to get a warrant to surveil the Trump campaign. Further, the FBI got that warrant by telling the FISA Court that the fraudulent information had been verified.

That isn’t what a nation of laws does. That’s what a bunch of criminals do.

One of the most underreported movements is the #Walkaway Campaign. According to my Google search, there are just 2,620 articles on the subject. The first article listed in the news search was this article from the Daily Caller. The title of the article is “OPINION: A Big Civility Gap Between The Left And Everyone Else, Say WalkAway Democrats.”

The opinion piece starts by saying “The ‘WalkAway’ campaign, started by Brandon Straka, is about exiting the Democratic Party. We studied the videos on the movement’s official YouTube channel, including 150 people who walked away. A large majority report a civility gap between the left and the non-left. Fully 70 percent suggested that the left is less civil than Republicans and others.”

There are lots of Establishment Republicans who don’t deserve our loyalty. Still, it’s clear that Democrats won’t tolerate people they slightly disagree with. With the hardline progressives, the slightest ‘infraction’ is enough to reject a person. That isn’t what made America exceptional. What’s made this nation exceptional is the ability and willingness to make a deal that’s a combination of mild disappointment and extreme satisfaction. This video must’ve struck a nerve:

The #WalkawayCampaign published this video on Jul 14, 2018. It already has almost 850,000 views. It’s attracted over 22,000 comments. It’s been approved or liked over 74,000 times while attracting less than 1,000 disapprovals in a year. Any political video that has a 75:1 approve-to-disapprove ratio in the comments section is astonishing.

The point I’m making is that the #WalkawayCampaign isn’t attracting much attention from the MSM. It should be. This isn’t insignificant. The opening page of the #Walkaway website tells what they’re doing:

The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement, founded by former liberal, Brandon Straka on May 26th, 2018. The #WalkAway Campaign encourages and supports those on the Left to walk away from the divisive tenets endorsed and mandated by the Democratic Party of today. We are walking away from the lies, the false narratives, the fake news, the race-baiting, the victim narrative, the violence, the vandalism, the vitriol. We are walking away from a party driven by hate. We are walking toward patriotism and a new, unified America! We are the future of this great nation!

Rest assured that these patriots aren’t just abandoning the hate-mongering Democrats. They’re running towards the new patriotism and a new, unified nation. It’s apparent, too, that the #WalkawayCampaign intends on influencing the 2020 election.

It’s difficult to measure a freshly minted grassroots’ movement’s impact prior to the next election. This one, however, seems distinct from past grassroots organizations. This time, it’s apparent that Democrats have played the division card thousands of times too many. It’s like the Democrats’ chief strategy is to divide, divide some more and divide the nation even more.

That isn’t the America that the Founding Fathers envisioned. That isn’t the “Shining City on a Hill” that President Reagan envisioned, either:

Today’s Democratic Party doesn’t seem capable of envisioning President Reagan’s Shining City on a Hill. Today’s Democratic Party seems only capable of division, propaganda and encouraging illegal immigration.

When Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi or other Democrats talk about America’s principles, they’re talking trash. Based on what we’re seeing in the #WalkawayCampaign and in the Trump movement, Biden and Pelosi couldn’t identify America’s principles if their lives depended on it.

Last week, Judge Michael Toomin ruled that Kim Foxx’s ‘recusal’ in the Jussie Smollett case was “sophistry.” Then he ruled in favor of appointing a special prosecutor to examine Foxx’s office’s work in dismissing Smollett’s charges.

Judge Toomin then compared Foxx’s investigation to a ship at sea without a captain, saying that “Here the ship of State ventured from its protected harbor without the guiding hand of its captain. There was no master on the bridge to guide the ship as it floundered through uncharted waters. And it ultimately lost its bearings.”

It isn’t surprising that this investigation failed to produce justice. Consider the fact that Tina Tchen, who was once chief of staff for former first lady Michelle Obama, spoke to Foxx after Foxx’s faux recusal.

In his ruling, Judge Toomin said this:

“Curiously, public announcements that flowed from the State’s Attorney’s Office offered the rather novel view that the recusal was not actually a recusal,” Toomin wrote. “Rather, in an exercise of creative lawyering, staff opined that Foxx did not formally recuse herself in a legal sense, that the recusal was only in a colloquial sense … However, discerning members of the public have come to realize that the ‘recusal that really wasn’t’ was purely an exercise in sophistry.”

Then Judge Toomin lowered the boom:

A true recusal would have put the case under the control of a prosecutor from another county. But Foxx kept the case in the hands of her deputy the Chicago Way. That, Toomin wrote, created a “fictitious office having no legal existence.”

Since the faux recusal really just created a void in the State’s Attorney’s office, the decision to drop the charges against Smollett didn’t really happen. Double jeopardy didn’t attach because the person making the decision didn’t have the authority to make decisions.

Judge Toomin is one of the heroes in this fiasco. The other hero is retired appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien. Judge O’Brien “figured…that Foxx’s handling of the Smollett case and her office’s decision to drop the charges against him smelled like the gutters in an alley off the Chicago Way.” In an interview with John Kass of the Chicago Tribune, Judge O’Brien told him:

Thanks to Judge Toomin’s ruling, we’ll get the truth,” O’Brien told me over the phone Friday. “We’ll get the whole truth, all of it, everything and it will be under oath.” Are you happy? “Yes,” O’Brien said. “Because now we’ll have testimony under oath.”

It’s apparent that under oath is what Judge O’Brien wanted most. That eliminates political wiggle room. A Chicago lawyer can turn political wiggle room into Swiss cheese in a New York minute.

Once this fiasco legitimately makes it into the courts, political influence shrinks quickly. That’s what’s apparently happening, much to Kim Foxx’s displeasure. She’s counted on her political connections to keep her out of trouble. The judiciary has tighter controls. Spin doesn’t hold up against verifiable proof.

From this point forward, it’s clear that Mark Geragos has his work cut out for him. This isn’t a political fight anymore. It’s a legal fight, something I doubt he thought he was signing on for.

In this post last night, I wrote about the untold story behind the immigration crisis. It’s called the health epidemic crisis. This article highlights what’s happening at the border.

What’s frightening is that diseases not seen in the US in literally decades are showing up at our southern border. What’s more frightening is that it isn’t likely that these diseases will be contained at the border.

Thus far, Democrats have insisted that the border crisis was a “manufactured crisis.” After it became obvious that this wasn’t a manufactured crisis, Democrats switched to saying it was a “humanitarian crisis.” Now that contagious diseases are getting detected, will Democrats, led by Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Schumer, continue to put Americans’ lives at risk? Will they ignore this crisis, too?

Jon Anfinsen is a National Border Patrol Council vice president and based in Del Rio, which includes Eagle Pass, where most Congolese are arriving. Anfinsen represents approximately 1,000 agents who are based out of 10 regional holding stations. Anfinsen has been an agent 12 years and said the number of people in custody and subsequent illnesses among that population is “unprecedented.”

“Scabies, chickenpox, we had one case of the mumps here in Uvalde. I wanna say we had measles, plenty of the flu, plenty of colds, body lice, just assorted. And some of these things, they spread like wildfires when you get into a cramped holding cell. It happens,” Anfinsen said.

The continuous breakouts — in part caused by the overcrowded conditions in facilities and difficulty quarantining each sick person — are taking both a physical and mental toll on agents.

This wasn’t unforeseen or unpredicted, either:

That interview happened 3 months ago. The CDC said then that they were “playing catch-up” with vaccinations. Since then, it’s quite possible that things have gotten worse.

What’s particularly upsetting is the fact that Democrats haven’t lifted a finger to fix the immigration problem. What’s worst is that they don’t seem at all interested in fixing the problem because they see it as a partisan political issue. How sad is that?

In 2020, voters have a decision. They can vote for the party that puts partisanship ahead of patriotism and doing what’s right. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for this type of malfeasance. It’s a vote for the failing status quo.

If you’re satisfied with communicable diseases spreading nationwide, then you need to rethink things ASAP.

It’s amazing how stupid the media can act when they’re defending Democrats. And I’m not talking about how it’s ok for the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid for unverified dirt on President Trump but it’s treason if President Trump contemplates what he’d do if a foreign government offered him dirt on his opponent in 2020. What I’m talking about is missing the real comparison from the interview.

There’s Donald Trump being interviewed and he’s answering all of Stephanopoulos’s questions. I’ll stipulate that his supporters probably didn’t want him to answer all of those questions but that’s President Trump. Let’s be honest about this. There’s tons of proof that President Trump is the most transparent president in recent history. (I don’t think it’s that close, in fact.)

President Trump holds multiple press availabilities each week. It’s routine that he doesn’t make an opening statement but then answers questions for 30-45 minutes. He’s let the media videotape lengthy portions of his cabinet meetings. He’s let reporters ask questions during those cabinet meetings, too. It’s a historical fact that no other president has done this that often since TV was created.

The important lesson to take from this, in my opinion, is that President Trump is the opposite of President Obama in terms of transparency. President Obama used executive privilege to hide what actually happened during Operation Fast and Furious. We might never know what Eric Holder did in getting guns into the hands of the drug cartels. It’s doubtful that we’ll find out what led to the assassination of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry.

Seemingly each week, Judicial Watch announces that it’s won another FOIA lawsuit against the Obama administration. The fact that the Obama administration would try hiding that many things from citizens that they own is instructive in terms of the Obama administration’s penchant for secrecy.

That fits with the Obama administration’s weaponization of the IRS, the ATF, the FBI and the CIA. After weaponizing the government, it’s only logical that Democrats would attempt to hide the Democrats’ weaponization of government. Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch and one of the most frightening people to Democrats in the nation, sums the Democrats’ strategy perfectly in this video:

It’s too late to ‘save’ the MSM. They’re hopeless, utterly hopeless. We need a 21st Century revival of the Pamphleteers. What the Democrats are missing are legitimate patriots. You can’t find them in today’s Democrat Party. They’re certainly missing in the Media Wing of the Democrat Party.

Further, the media insists on running every quote from Democrats saying that Bill Barr is acting like President Trump’s defense attorney. Oh please. Why don’t they talk about this:

“I’m still enjoying what I’m doing, there’s still work to be done. I’m still the President’s wing-man, so I’m there with my boy. So we’ll see,” Holder said in an interview on the Tom Joyner radio show.

Certainly, a strong, strong case can be made that Eric Holder acted like President Obama’s defense attorney. In fact, a stronger argument can be made that President Obama acted as Holder’s defense attorney by shielding Holder by improperly using executive privilege.

Let’s pose a hypothetical question. Let’s suppose that an organization announced that they were holding a rally? Then let’s imagine that nobody attended this rally. Finally, let’s imagine that it wasn’t just any organization and that it wasn’t a rally (single) but rallies.

According to Emily Zanotti’s article, MoveOn.org “kicked off a nationwide campaign to impeach President Donald Trump Saturday with a series of ‘#ImpeachTrump’ rallies and a ‘Day of Action’ meant to inspire the far left to pressure Congressional legislators to undertake impeachment proceedings.”

The bad news is that “‘dozens’ of protesters ‘packed’ a park to listen to speakers talk about Trump’s sins against democracy” in Portland, OR. Then there’s this important information:

MoveOn partnered with around two dozen organizations on the event, including activist group, Indivisible, the national Women’s March, Democracy for America, and CREDO, and looped in celebrities like Chelsea Handler and members of the cast and crew of Modern Family to help promote the event. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who is leading the impeachment charge in the House of Representatives, was among those legislators and high-profile guests invited to speak at the rallies.

With such far left firepower, you’d think the turnout was through the roof. It wasn’t. But things didn’t quite go as planned:

The Washington Times reports that MoveOn.org expected massive turnout at 120 events in cities and towns throughout the country. “Donald Trump’s abuses of our communities and country demand action from Congress, which has the responsibility and authority to hold Trump accountable. The next crucial step is an inquiry into whether to draft articles of impeachment,” MoveOn.org claims on their website, Impeach.org. “The time is now to push every member of Congress to act on behalf of the constituents, country and Constitution and begin impeachment now.”

Portland, OR isn’t exactly known as a hotbed of conservatism. Look at this ‘crowd’ gathered in Portland:

There are town team baseball games in small town Minnesota that attract more people. By all means, though, Democrats should keep making the #ImpeachTrump drumbeat. Don’t let the crowds fool you, Democrats. You’ve found your winning issue for 2020. Want more proof? Check out the ‘crowd’ that gathered in Newport, RI:

I’d argue that it attracted people by the dozens except I’m not certain the plural conjugation of dozen is accurate. Again, it’s worth noting that Newport, RI isn’t a hotbed of conservatism. One of their senators is Sheldon Whitehouse. Ideologically speaking, Whitehouse is just a bit to the left of Al Franken.

That’s what happens when you try selling something people don’t want.
