There is too much at stake for the public to be clinging to impeachment unicorns. It's clear that impeachment will do nothing to Donald Trump. Sure, it should still happen because it's the right legal process, but it won't save this country.
This might seem like just another Trump scandal, another horrible person he’s put into power, but it’s so much more than that.
It would be a lie to tell you that I don't think this president deserves to be impeached, or that I don't agree that the rule of law is imperiled if he is not impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate. Intellectually, impeachment is the only answer to the immoral, unlawful attacks on democracy that are Donald Trump's presidency.
Stand up for women like you stand up for any other cause: We are real, we are right here, and we are in a crisis heretofore unseen.
People need to stay resolute about reality, demand that news networks stop playing Trump’s lies without correcting them first
Pelosi is not just doing her job to finally put a constitutional check on this presidency -- this crime and ethics violation ridden presidency, but she is quietly giving the women of this country the feeling that they matter and she won’t let this subjugating tyrant get off on hurting people anymore.
Those who claim this was a fight between parties are ignoring that one party was doing the will of the people, while the other was not. The Speaker got it done because it was the right thing to do and it should be remembered that she is not the person who held the government and 2 million people hostage over a failed campaign promise.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA‘s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
The day before a judge admonished Trump‘s former National Security Adviser for selling out his country, suggesting that Flynn committed treason, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone admitted to spreading lies on Alex Jones’ conspiracy oriented InfoWars.
I went to the Tree of Life Synagogue on Friday to follow up on the horrific slaughter of eleven innocent Jewish and I was surprised by what I felt and found.
The first thing I found was love.
The media is going to continue to help Trump push his caravan lies until you tell them to stop by voting with your remotes.

The mob is real; it’s Republican, and it’s dangerous. The media needs to do its job regarding Trump and the Republicans’ dangerous rhetoric against Democrats and liberals.
But by Monday, I knew it was a lifetime war. Tuesday I knew I would get there. And I will.
People tell me I can’t speak about this because I am biased. I disagree.
I have mentioned this in passing before, but now I’m going to come out with the story of an ongoing sexual assault that happened to me at work, so that I can use it to explain things very slowly to Republican enablers of rapists.
Why is Leader Nancy Pelosi labeled “polarizing” when Republicans, with whom the majority of the public does not agree, are not? I asked her this in an exclusive interview and she told me “They’re afraid of me, they’re afraid of women.”
"Fake news" is the chant Trump started to generate hatred toward journalists, along with saying they are the enemy of the people. So when the White House repeatedly includes "innocent" as qualifier to who shouldn't be shot, it's not meaningless. Context matters.
Feel defeated? Too bad. There is no time for that. It is time to fight for your country at every turn. It is time for non-violent protests everywhere. It is time to let the Democratic Party leaders know that you WILL NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE.
The media and politicians keep addressing the issue of Donald Trump as if it were a relationship problem between him and whoever he is insulting, intimidating, bullying, and lying about on that day. This is not only wrong, but it enables him to continue and misses the far more frightening point that there is no reasoning with Donald Trump, because he does not want the same things for our country as most of us on both sides of the aisle want.
The media's obsequious circling of the wagons around White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over a brutal roasting by a comedienne is more troubling than anything Michelle Wolf said.
Black people are blamed for every evil in our world here in Trump country. This isn’t a one-off. This isn’t an emotional reaction to a few racist comments. This also isn’t a smug lecture about the ugly racism of the other. The "elites" want liberals to stop talking about racism -- in a way that only people who are privileged enough to not suffer racism could.
There is a cancer in our country and ignoring it won’t fix the problem.
The Republican Majority Leader is assaulting the democratic process yet again, but this time he's doing it for a President who is not only under FBI investigation for possible collusion with a hostile foreign power, but whose National Security Adviser just pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia, and who will reportedly testify that he was directed in his contacts with Russia by the President himself.
