The Impeachment Trial of President Donald J. Trump

Today began the trial of Donald Trump. As set forth in the Constitution, the House of Representatives impeaches the President, but the trial about his removal takes place in the Senate.

As I have pointed out, the Founding  Fathers saw 45 coming. They anticipated someone as thoroughly corrupt as 45.

What they never anticipated was that an entire political party would turn their backs on their oath of office and this country.

 

We all knew that The Turtle would put up a sham. We knew that.

CALL THE WITNESSES!!😠😠

But, the Democrats brought it. One by one by one, starting with Congressman Adam Schiff, they broke it down like a fraction, and made plain the crimes of the one running the criminal enterprise at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Not one Republican showed any courage, and never should we forget this. Hold them accountable in November 2020!

Open Thread | Voter Suppression Train Up and Running in Wisconsin

We are back at one of the topics that interests us a great deal here at 3CHICS:

VOTER SUPPRESSION.

Today’s obvious example is coming from Wisconsin.

If people are registered to vote and come out and vote, the GOP loses. They cannot win fair elections.
Voter Suppression is the core of thelr election strategy for 2020.

Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. The three states that ‘ elected’ Dolt45.
People wanna talk about third party voting in these states.
I, however, will continue to beat the horse that gets neglected and overlooked when folks are trying to explain 2016.

That horse?

The number of regular Democratic Party voters that did not vote because THEY WERE DENIED ACCESS TO THE FRANCHISE DUE TO VOTER SUPPRESSION.

In each state, that number of regular Democratic Party voters who were voter suppressed was at least THREE TIMES THE MARGIN of Dolt45’s ‘victory’ in each state.

…………………………………………

So, here they come again, just in time for the 2020 election:

Found this on Twitter:

Patrick Marley (@patrickdmarley) Tweeted:
BREAKING: Judge finds Wisconsin election officials in contempt of court, orders them to quickly remove thousands of people from the voter rolls.

He charges three commissioners $250 a day each for defying his order.

BREAKING: Right-wing judge rules for right-wing litigant on Wisconsin voter purge, orders 200k+ voters removed ASAP, holds Democratic members of WI Elections Commission in contempt, fines them $250/day till purge is complete.

Help Dems re-register voters!

Ben Wikler (@benwikler) Tweeted:
You probably saw the headlines about the Wisconsin voter purge last year. Since then, a lot has happened.

Before the lawsuit, the WI Elections Commission had unanimously (6-0) decided to individually verify that voters had moved before de-registering them in 2021. But then….
…after the lawsuit, the 3 GOP-appointed commissioners flipped and decided to go with the judge and support an immediate, unverified mass purge. The Dem-appointed commissioners held fast; wanted to wait out legal appeals. Commission deadlocked. Purge on hold.

But THEN…

even as the WI voter purge was playing out in state & federal court, the right-wing Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty sued to get the judge who’d made the original purge ruling hold the Dem elections commissioners in contempt of court. He ruled today: yep, he said—contempt.

The WI Elections Commission is scheduled to meet tomorrow. In the face of this ruling, they could well vote to conduct the purge immediately. It could be over by Friday. Which means our organizing will have to kick into high gear, fast—to make sure purged folks register again.

Once the purge takes place, we’ll be able to get the list of people and immediately begin reaching out to them, via text and email and social media and every other way we can think of.

Concerned re yourself? See if you’re registered to vote

Why is this all happening? It’s simple: this is the GOP’s strategy to win the election. Trump is terrified about losing Wisconsin. As his campaign advisor said in a closed-door briefing, “We’re going to win Wisconsin and win the election or lose Wisconsin and lose the election.”

“Traditionally it’s always been Republicans suppressing votes in places,” said Trump advisor Justin Clark—in a statement he claimed was taken out of context. (The, uh, context: a speech about “playing offense” with poll monitoring, a suppression tactic.)

In 2020, The Democratic Party of Wisconsin will be going far beyond what we’ve ever done to protect the vote here. We’ve teamed up with @staceyabrams and @fairfightaction to build a voter protection team, a year out. We’re organizing earlier & more broadly than ever before.

@staceyabrams @fairfightaction If you’re here or nearby and want to help on the ground, sign up to join our neighborhood teams to mobilize voters and potential voters:

@staceyabrams @fairfightaction We can beat their tactics. Despite every GOP effort to shut it down, we’ve still got same-day registration here in Wisconsin. We can organize harder than they can suppress. It just means doing the work. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Ben Wikler (@benwikler) Tweeted:
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction @resistbot Republicans know that if everyone votes, they’re toast. That’s why they ripped Automatic Voter Registration out of @GovEvers’s proposed budget. That’s why they refuse to hold hearings on AVR. And it’s why they support this purge.

Open Thread | Back to Obamacare

This website supports Obamacare. We know what it has done for Americans.
We are also clear that the ENTIRE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS AGAINST IT.
They have been against it, from the beginning.
They have tried everything that they could to damage it.
The multiple repeal votes.
The lawsuits.
The refusal by GOP-led States to expand Medicaid.
The purposeful sabotage by this Administration..
They have no valid alternative .😠😠
