Tue Jul 2, 2019, 05:18 PM

I spend 2-3 hours a day online in various places defending Nancy and

the party from bashers of her and the party.

She clearly has data that an unsuccessful impeachment will put enough seats at risk that we could lose the House. There is NO other reason for her to resist impeachment.

While she wrestles with that, rump and the GOP openly tell us the constitution and rule of law no longer apply to them and they are going to destroy us.

We are left with no win scenarios, witnesses that WONT testify, subpoenas that WONT be honored or enforced by the traitor running the DOJ.

I have NO ANSWERS but I do see more and more people who would vote for Democrats getting angry and acting like maybe they wont if Nancy doesnt impeach. Do they seem to care we dont even have enough DEMOCRATS in the House to vote for impeachment? They dont seem to understand that.

This is the lose-lose Nancy is in and we are in.

57. I dont think she can get enough of the centrists (the New Democrat Coalition, The Blue Dog Caucus,

and especially the very problematic No Labels/Problem Solvers group) to go forward with even an enquiry, let alone full blown hearings or a final vote

that is half of our House membership there (those centrists)

Many will not vote for impeachment, probably well over half, which makes it dead.

Those members are also going to block most all of the big tickets items almost all of our POTUS candidates are promising, even if we maintain 20 or so members and retake the Senate and win the POTUS.

If you think the fighting over the border bill (Problems Solvers back-stabbed Pelosi and the progs) was bad, wait until the centrists block the public option (I see some even blocking or trying to block lowering the age of Medicare to 55) or free community college (forget 4 years, lol) or even most all (other than super narrow) debt forgiveness. They will block a lot of even really watered down climate change actions. They will DEFFO block a wealth tax and extensive financial regulation.

It will be brutal brawls. The fucking Rethugs have gerrymandered and voter suppressed so hard, shoved the whole landscape so far to the right, that simply to have a majority we have to elect a tonne of centrists who are actually like ore woke versions of the most moderate Rockefeller Rethugs back decades ago especially on economics and spending. On some social issues, our Dem centrists are FAR more progressive than the rockefeller Rethugs were at least, other than regressive pro-life, anti-LGBTQ, anti immigrant outliers like Lipinski and Henry Cuellar.

Only way to change all that is we HAVE to again majorities in the STATE legislatures, so when re-districting based off the 2020 census occurs, we can unskew those artificially made pink and red districts and then primary the worst of the centrists out as the new seats will be back to safe blue ones. That is a MASSIVE lift, and so difficult and arduous a task, as you are talking about hundreds of seats at state level needing to be flipped or maintained, and all that is fought on a Rethug gerrymandered (at present) map.

The progressive left is going to go BONKERS if we win POTUS, retake the Senate and have 240, 250 House members and still cannot even pass the mild versions of reforms (like I said, big fails on even the public option, etc). If we cannot undo the gerrymanders with the new maps based off the 2020 census, and we still have to have an artificially centrist (let face it, some are centre right on econ) caucus to retain control, there is going to be a bloody civil war going on by 2023 or so (especially IF we retake the Senate) If we win the POTUS in 2020, and then our person is re-elected in 2024, plus we have control of bother chambers (a lot of huge ifs I do grant) and most all is STILL blocked, I fear for the Party's structural unity circa 2025, 2026.

69. the giant healthcare provider lobbies (doctors, hospitals) the giant insurance lobbies

like AHIP (whose executive board directo, Dan Hilferty (he is also the Independence Blue Cross CEO) was Biden's Philadelphia kick-off giant fundraiser's co-chair) and big pharma lobbies have all vowed to fight it, with hundreds of millions backing their efforts. AHIP crushed the public option last time, and dropped over 100 million (in just the last 14 months prior to its passage) trying to stop Obamacare itself.

I am totally FOR the public option, but I do not think a lot of people (who see it as a completely moderate option when compared to M4A) realise how big and massive a move it will be. All those lobbies, all the Rethugs, and all the Dem centrists who are against any sort of national expansion, (even if they had zero electoral fears) and going to combine efforts to paint the public option as the end of US healthcare and pharma systems. They will be utterly ruthless and fear monger at massive systemic levels. Same on financial regulation, uni tuition/student debt reforms, and moving to increase (even slightly) the taxing rates of the top wealth strata and giant corps.

The Rethugs have utterly gamed the entire system over the last 50 years. At every level, from local to national. We are boxed in, as if we want to have majority control, we have to have a shit tonne of members representing artificially RW (in varying degrees) swing districts. It is like (if you allow me a football analogy) fucking Spurs being allowed to dictate my team's (Chelsea) midfield and centre backs based off a set of rules Tottenham got to write.

are disillusioned and frustrated because leadership is putting party over country. If Speaker Pelosi continues to run out the clock on impeachment, history will not be kind. I hope she's gaming out how many grassroots workers and small donors that feverishly worked on mid-term Dem campaigns in order to take on trump, will not be showing up next year.

also significant because of trump.

I certainly agree that passionate Democrats such as you and I will be working for 2020. There were quite a few people I worked with last year that were grassroots workers and donors for the first time in their life (mainly because of trump).

Every Democrat vote that is cast in this country, I maintain, are not necessarily made by people like us. I hope leadership takes this anger and disillusionist in mind and not "cut off their nose to spite their face".

27. I respectfully disagree.

 

Trump's biographer stated that impeachment would devastate Trump. An impeachment hearing would be televised, it would stop Trump and the far right from controlling the narrative. Control of the narrative is extremely important leading up to the election.

An impeachment hearing should give Congress the grand jury information that Barr is refusing to release. It should give us that information before the election.

What we are doing now will never be resolved before the election. Court cases will be delayed right up to the Supreme Court.

To me that amounts to doing nothing because if Trump is reelected we have lost our democracy. As a matter of fact, even if Trump loses the election who can guarantee that he will abide by the election results.

Our despot is getting the people ready to crown him king just look at the 4th of July tribute to Trump.

23. Barr himself said that he would release grand jury information

 

for an impeachment hearing. An impeachment hearing carries more clout with the courts because it is a judicial hearing where regular House hearings are legislative hearings.

We already have the information of what people testified to before the grand jury. All we need is for Barr to release that information, it doesn't involve subpoenas.

20. Why is understanding voting so hard?

The only message sent by losing an election is that the other side was more popular. Expect politicians to shift towards that position and live with the policies you didn’t oppose.

There are choices that aren’t forced on you but there are plenty that are. If you don’t like any of the movies playing no one forces you to see one.

If you have to go to work, you gave to choose to drive, walk, etc or lose your job. If you are hungry and the only food you have is lima beans or sardines you pick one or go to the store.

Is the problem that mentally we’re set up to not like decisions we have to make as opposed to choices we get to make? Maybe there actually us something to ranked choice voting. It may not actually change “the real choice” but maybe it gets people past the mental block we seem to have about forced choices.

Sorry this doesn’t completely fit in with your post. I don’t have any real comment other than i mostly agree.

If the vote counts in enough states are directly manipulated you would be right except doing the right thing matters anyway.

If they don’t manipulate enough of the right precincts by enough then not voting can give them the margin of victory.

If part of the manipulation is to supress votes then not voting also can give them the margin they need.

If poisoning turnout by selling that it is all hopeless so why bother voting ....same thing.

They will probably try any thing they can think of and will get away with some. Voting is the only option most of us have and doesn’t preclude any ither option.

The stupidest way to lose an election is to despair and not even vote.

taking a vote and getting Trump out of there. Or easy as turning the lights on and off.
No, it is not that easy. If it were that easy, getting rid of Trump would already have been done. So many obstacles in the way, and many of those obstacles have very different solutions and complications deep within.
Yes, there are a whole lot of " party bashers but many of them are as stupid as Trump.

Again, If it were really that easy to get rid of Trump...(like one simple vote and he is out) it would have been done already.

Pretty much everyone here knows that impeachment won't remove him.

Most people that I see here think that the hearings themselves would have a negative impact on Trump, and get important information out to the public.

Many also think that an impeachment by the House would damage him.

If you've got links to people here, arguing what you posted, I'd sure like to see them.

37. I'm hoping there's less of them this time.

In fact, with Donald Trump now proven as an existential threat, I expect there won’t be near as many selfish pouters this cycle.

41. And not impeaching will allow Trump and all the Trumpistas out there

to point out that clearly there was nothing there, and to re-elect him.

THAT'S the message the Republicans are getting from doing nothing.

49. who is doing nothing?

if the House ever gets the numbers needed to start impeachment hearings, the Democrats will have the foundation down.
this link from NBC is from a while back, but it takes you to links of the present day committee's work.

67. I only know what I read...

We're up to 80 now + the 1 Republican. The New York Times keeps a running tally of who has come out for or against impeachment. Some members also explain their positions, but who cares....right?

46. there's something up with people..

I think it's the tv. If people read, they would not speak as they do, I don't think. So they either don't care to find out why things are the way they are, or they have an agenda.

72. I don't think the smash-mouth

one-liners are opinions. There is no thought process involved. Just repetition. Although I guess that's about all that can be expected. Turn on the tv, and let them tell you what to think.
