I would love to see him impeached, but I don't have confidence that this will happen. We have a Republican congress who has no history of putting Country before party. They will keep him in office as long as possible, with Mike Pence as their fall-back. Pence will still push the same horrible policies as Trump, but at least he will not be a loose cannon.

While my confidence in this has been diminished a bit over recent days, my current position is that Trump will win re-election in 2020. I have no confidence whatsoever in the ability of the Democratic Party to pull itself out of the clutches of Wall-Street and capitalist interests and offer an alternative to this slide toward fascism.

If the obstruction of justice charge can be substantiated, it will happen.

Sad to say I have to agree. I have done second order analyses on GDP time series and two items of concern emerged:

1. During the W adminstration outsourcing of labor, "outvesting" of funds, and financial "voodoo economics" resulted in destruction of suplus-to-investment in domestic infrastructure, and total destruction of the middle class consumer resources. The delta was made up using financial wizardry and loans which created a "Wiley Coyote" false security curve which ultimately failed dramatically. Quite dramatic to see the graphs of this!

2. During the Obama admin. the surplus was increased dramatically (mostly among the upper 1% ) and in government tax reciepts which historically used to result in increased IN-vestment activity such as in workforce enhancement; for example, training, education investment, roads and infrastructure, etc. Usually this happens; however, instead of INvesting, funds were OUTvested in supporting offshore infrastructure enhancements to enrich offshore labor skills making outsourcing of highly skilled work much more easy. In essence the 1% invested over there, so they didn't have to over here. Result: middle class is toast. Another very dramatic and scary graph using 2nd order MEMM dynamic modeling.

Applying neuroeconomic modeling by leveraging MEMM econometric models and cognitive neuropsychological models shows an increasingly fearful and rageful middle class. This is not going to be remedied for generations. The Dems are just not getting this. Of course Trump gets the rage part, and he knows that he can use this in his "hustle." I'm afraid its "game over."

To all those who want to impeach Stewie: Do you REALLY want President Pence? Wise men know to be careful in for what they wish.

And yes, Stewie will get re-elected. The Dems are so completely clueless they cannot win a single dog-catcher post. And the Progressives have yet to start getting organized. So All Hail Emperor Stewie!

Being a loose canon is Stewie's saving grace; it keeps him from ever getting any results.

I believe Trump will be impeached and some in his cabinet, including the Vice President are also criminally indicted.

I believe tRump will resign before he is impeached. I also believe that the GOP for the most part will have a very hard time getting any repubs in office due to their support for tRump's draconian policies. I also don't believe there as many Rumptards as the pole show. I know there are a lot of stupid folks out there, but 39% approval rating is a far stretch.

Impeachment is a political act. Congress won't impeach 45; he is a useful distraction. While the media and public are obsessed monitoring 45, the Repubicon Congress is doing what suits IT--rather than what helps ordinary people. Republicons seem uninterested in preserving our democracy and sharing governance with Democrats. Republicons want to do what suits them without transparency and oversight. To hell with the future; they just don't concern themselves with the long term impact of their actions and policies.

The flight of liberals from the GOP basically ended democracy in this country. The end result is that, instead of fearful authoritarians being present (and their voices diluted) in both parties, we now have an authoritarian party, a neoliberal party, and fragmented groups of liberals, "libertarians", and true conservatives. Today's Repub voter is not conservative, he is frightened and he has a huge ego investment in the myth of American "rugged individualism". Authoritarianism makes him feel safe. So, not only will Trump not be impeached-his crimes will be called "minor"- he will be re-elected. Why? The Texas Tribune ran a great article about the Texas vote. Texas is a state where the Latino vote already equals the white vote. Only 40% of eligible Latinos voted in 2016. In contrast, 800K MORE whites voted, compared to 2012. Our democracy is lost as long as millions of liberals do not vote. We bemoan the 8 million who were disenfranchised. What about the millions more who could care less? Unlike many here, I remember Nixon, Watergate, and the stories about coverups. I can tell you exactly where I was when I heard Nixon resigned. Political pundits were convinced the GOP was finished. Less than 6 years later, Reagan was sworn in. America is not a different country than it was then. Repub voters can be amazingly progressive when you talk to them. It's just that they refuse to take responsibility for the consequences of their vote.

That is the plan to have Pence take over the Presidency within the first year. The Republicans hate Trump he is a big Weight around their neck I don't want him going anywhere. Maybe 3 months before his term ends we can get rid of him. Pence is a Koch Brothers Whore and this was planned in either April or March of 2015. It was told to me by someone who heard it in person. Pence is one of the most evil men in America. Don't impeach Trump. It is a Koch Brothers trap.

One can't be impeached on the basis of mere allegations. If there is any substance to the allegations, Congress can decide to move forward with a formal investigation, and for a range of reasons, I think there is zero chance of this happening with the Trump administration.

Democrats divided and conquered their own voting base in the 1990s, middle class vs. poor, and the past eigfht years confirmed that this split is permanent. This is why Democrats are probably over for the foreseeable future.

On voting, for whom would you vote if no candidate, no party, represented you or your greatest concerns? For 2016, the two parties in power selected candidates who were deeply opposed by much of their own voting bases, for some of the same reasons. This is why roughly half of all US voters either voted third party or withheld their votes In the end, Clinton got the most votes, the Electoral College vote went to Trump.

The thought of Mike Pence and Pau Ryan along with McConnell actually doing their degenerate "thing" is even more horrifying than Trump.

Of course I'm discounting his insane handing over the war machine totally to the military which nobody seems to be abe to stop!!!!!

Republicans Admit to Accepting Bribes, Why Aren't They In Jail?

The whole Roy Moore thing in a way really highlights in my mind how committed the Republicans are to sucking up to the very, very wealthy base. I've been referring to them for a long time as the owners of the Republican Party, but they're also the ones that keep the Republican Party in power. They're also the supporters of the Republican Party.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
