On Wednesday I watched the “Constitutional” lawyers, all of whom are liberals, anti-Trump shills (except Jonathan Turley, who did not vote for Trump, but is refreshingly honest) try to frame the President with bogus allegations of obstruction, misuse of power etc. and it was all destroyed when Matt Gaetz asked if any of them had heard any solid evidence of an impeachable offense and NO ONE raised their hand. I mean, how many times do we have to hear someone’s opinion or assumption? This is such a partisan hack job and so blatantly obvious, the American people should be up in arms about this waste of time and taxpayer money (I am, if you cannot tell).
The Democrats are so deep in the weeds on all of this that they cannot stop. It is sad in so many ways
The impeachment of a president is serious business, is NOT supposed to be political in nature and the pursuit of impeachment must be based on fact, not partisan political bullshit. How dare these Democrats waste all this time and money because they are unable to accept that they LOST the election in 2016. This is a shameful display of partisanship and the American people see it for just what it is: nonsense.
As an American citizen, how do you want our country to move forward for you and your family:
SECURE BORDERS? OPEN BORDERS?
MORE GOVERNMENT? LESS GOVERNMENT?
A STRONG MILITARY? A WEAK MILITARY?
LESS TAXATION? MORE TAXATION?
LESS GOVERNMENT REGULATION? MORE GOVERNMENT REGULATION?
FAIR TRADE AGREEMENTS? QUID PRO QUO TRADE AGREEMENTS?
PROPER CARE FOR OUR VETERANS? DON’T CARE FOR OUR VETERANS?
MERIT BASED IMMIGRATION? THE SHIT WE HAVE NOW?
RESPONSIBLE HELP FOR THE POOR? THROW MONEY AT THE PROBLEM?
TEACH AMERICAN HISTORY TO OUR CHILDREN? ERASE AMERICAN HISTORY?
RESPECT OUR FLAG? DON’T GIVE A SHIT?
SAY THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IN SCHOOL? WHAT IS THAT?
Infrastructure X (Keystone & Dakota pipelines) Regulation Reform XX 1 in 2 out

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”</blockquote
