    What does that have to do with impeachment and how it will hurt him in the 2020 election?

    Why not both. Impeachment won't lead to conviction in the traitorous GOP Senate. But it could hurt him enough to ensure his defeat.

    First things first -- I think Congress, and then the people, should get the unredacted report and proceed based on the facts at hand.

    That should be the first order of business -- continue the investigations and get all of the relevant information before deciding the appropriate response.

    To be clear, I'm not saying this should be done indefinitely -- I'm saying that we need to hear from people like Mueller, monitor the trials of people like Roger Stone, and gather all of the facts, or as many as possible from further investigation, before determining the next course of action.

    Ben Carson Wants To Evict Families With Undocumented Immigrants From Public Housing

    Carson says the new rule will reduce long waitlists for public housing for citizens. Housing advocates say all it will do is split up families with mixed immigration status.

    The Trump administration is pushing a new policy to prevent undocumented family members of US citizens and documented immigrants from living with them in public housing.

    The Trump administration’s proposal seeks to evict undocumented family members from public housing, rather than continuing the practice of adjusting their families’ benefits to exclude them. The rule was sent to Congress for a 15-day review period on Wednesday, and will then be available for public comment before it can move ahead.

    Dr. Carson's proposed rule will make excellent progress in the HUD, if the Democrats do not oppose it.

    The only government numbers I could find was it might be 0.3% of HUD residents that are undocumented. 96% are citizens and about 4% are legal immigrants.

    But for an Administration that has tried to destroy Public Housing, why not wreck families too.

    Your immunity to cruelty is astonishing.

    Fortunately, the Dems will stop it.

    Responsibility my ass! For Trump, being president is all about sating his colossal ego, he doesn’t give a damn about anything else. Bottom line, Trump will NEVER be more powerful in his miserable life than he is right now, and he’ll willingly shit on the Constitution to remain in office.

    How should Democrats deal with Trump?

    Impeachment in 2019? (Assuming they can get the Senate on board)

    Or

    Election in 2020? (Assuming that they can vote him out of Office)

    It's not ALL a death cult. Some of them would rather see people live, provided they can take glee in their suffering.

    I fear for what could happen if we wait until 2020. But I do look forward to casting a vote knowing that it will lead to the biggest s***heel in modern American history and most of his family going to prison.

    On this date in 2015, 2016, 2017, as well as 2018, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of Kentucky State Senator C.B. Embry, who we recognized in our first profile as the sponsor of legislation that would offer a $2500 bounty on transgendered public school students using the "incorrect bathroom". This was in January 2015 (right after he won a new term in the state senate), and not long thereafter, he killed a bill about trying to decide how school superintendents are picked by trying to sneak an amendment on it for a ban on transgendered citizens using public bathrooms (sadly, Embry's brand of transphobic madness has now become the status quo of Republican domestic policy). Embry has also palled around with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, supporting her homophobic quest against same sex marriage so much that he sponsored SB 5, a "religious freedom" law to allow for discrimination against LGBT citizens. Rounding out Embry's profile, he repeatedly has supported legislation to require mandatory (but medically unnecessary) ultrasounds on all abortions without exception, even, for victims of rape and incest, supported a TRAP law to attempt to shut down all abortion clinics in his state, wants concealed carry of firearms without a permit for all citizens, voted for a bill which would define first responders as a protected class in hate crimes legislation (which he really don't think it's bad, but the fact that he thinks it shouldn't apply to LGBT citizens, who are BORN gay, but it should apply to people based on their employment choices is troubling), and under his "legislative priorities" on Project Vote Smart, lists "the coal industry" as his top concern, which is as honest of him as it is downright sad for his constituents. In 2018, Embry supported legislation to ban abortion at 11 weeks, because if a 20-week ban will get overturned by the courts as unconstitutional via Roe v. Wade, surely an eleven week ban would get the support of a judge, right? (NO.)

    C.B. Embry is currently 78 years old, and fresh off of a re-election campaign that saw him granted a return to office with 67% of the vote. He has decided to up the ante for unconstitutional anti-choice legislation even farther than his last term in office, this time becoming the sponsor of a fetal heartbeat bill, effectively trying to oulaw the procedure at 6 weeks this time.

    We’re expecting Embry to run for re-election in 2022 when he’s in his eighties and watch him try and overturn Roe v. Wade outright.

    So Sen. Warren has advocated for impeachment of President Trump, and the question becomes, is it worth our time? Well, that depends on what you want impeachment hearings to accomplish. If you want them to result in conviction and removal from office for Trump, then it's a waste of time because the Democrats will never get enough Republican Senators to flip and vote to convict. However, if you just want to have impeachment hearings that will embarrass Trump on C-Span and cause him to lose so badly to whoever the Democratic candidate is in the Presidential debates in October 2020, that even the red-hats will abandon him and thus that Democratic candidate is elected our next President, then yeah, let's get that ball rolling.

    Because there is NOTHING the GOP wants that will not screw the country. They only have, accept this evil for a good. Sad, really.

    I can live with that. And then indict him and his criminal family when he is no longer in office.

    This is merely another part of Trump's War on All Immigrants, anything it does to HUD is secondary. Much like the new guidelines that count working in legal marijuana industries against immigrants applying for citizenship. Those have nothing to do with the war on drugs, but limit the number of people who qualify for citizenship.
