Are They Going to Get Trump?

As I have pointed out, the key to whether President Trump will be convicted in the Senate after a House impeachment will depend on the polls.

If many in the country are swayed that the president did something seriously wrong in his call to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, enough Republican senators will be swayed to vote for conviction.

This ABC News poll is not encouraging for the president.



  1. All thanks to a very lying and dishonest media that's too lazy to present the Biden video of him literally bragging he got the AG in Ukraine fired and no explanation what qualified his son to do business there while he was VP. Also consider the mostly low IQ of the voter population who can't think beyond what's for dinner tonight.

  2. I admit, with some embarrassment, that I still have vestiges of pride in the USA. Growing up the USA was considered by many throughout the world to be the shinning light on the hill. We were going to the moon, conquering communism, hero's of the world wars, and most of all we were free.

    I know the USA was never that great and the light on the hill is no longer seen as a beacon of good but can't help but feel some embarrassment that this is on display to the whole world.

  3. I'm completely underwhelmed by the accusations. Trump should be strung up on war crimes for Yemen. Does anyone really care that he jammed up Biden's sleazy kickback operation? Is that a crime? This is all silly.

  4. The brain dead American voters still do not know that Russiagate was a criminal hoax put on by the intel services and Hillary. They do not know that Obama overthrew the elected government of Ukraine and its replacement was full of actual Nazis and which proceeded to engage in serious war crimes. If Trump can't get this information into the minds of those people, he deserves what he gets.

  5. "This ABC News poll is not encouraging for the president." Really!! I am shocked!! After all NBC News is the gold standard of journalism and objectivity. NOT. What this really indicates is that the establishment continues to oppose Trump but tells us nothing about how the voters/citizens actually feel. My hope is that the citizens will realize the corruptness of the whole system (elections, representatives passing laws, politicians with the power to coerce) and abandon it lock, stock and barrel.

  6. Yeah, they're going to get Trump...get him elected again in 2020.

  7. Look what I found on this obscure little website:

    In the case of this bill, there are clear connections among its main sponsors (Corker and McCain) and Ukrainian oligarchs. Without discussing these here, I’ll only mention that the imperialism of this bill shows through even in the bill itself which has a number of explicit crony capitalist sections on gas and oil development in Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. The bill directs the U.S. Agency for International Development to guarantee loans for every phase of the development of oil and gas in these regions:

    “…direct assistance to expand efforts in Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova to help exploit existing natural gas reserves, to conduct additional exploration for oil and gas, and to develop alternative sources of energy, including oil and gas, and to encourage energy efficiency, for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, including the development of associated transportation, storage, and refinement facilities.”

    There is nothing like installing your own puppets in a foreign government, then underwriting loans to the local oligarchs and American favorites to develop the oil and gas business, while trying to freeze out Russian companies, and then sitting back and raking in the payoffs and profits. Domestically, similar methods are a proven way of doing business within America.

    Obama is so cool, having overthrown the elected government of Ukraine to install Nazis and then bomb the crap out of the area where all the gas and oil is located to clear the way for gas extraction. I'm sure it's all to save the climate. White suburban women will LOVE it.

    On a serious note, this is why the CIA freaked out about the phone call. No one wants Trump or anyone else digging into these crimes.

  8. I inadvertently omitted the link to that obscure website that I quoted above.

  9. Resolved then, that people are hard-wired to be governed.

    1. It would be good if more people had any idea of what "governance" means. They don't, but they're prepared to argue about politics and government all day long.
