Hey Democrats! The Impeachment Water Is Cold!

February 24, 2017

Just to throw a bucket of cold reality on the impeachment dreamers: to remove Trump, they’d first have to get the House to pass articles of impeachment. Thanks to years of unrealistic Democratic actions, Republicans control the House. But let’s imagine that actually happened. He’d then have to be impeached by the Senate. True, some Republican Senators don’t like Trump, and unlike Democrats, Republicans have been known to hold Presidents of their own party to some actual standards. Still, it requires a two-thirds vote. But as long as we’re fantasizing like Democrats, let’s imagine that happens, too.

So Trump is gone! Democrats rejoice! Until they realize they’ve just given us President Mike Pence. Okay, gear up your imaginations and let’s fantasize that they can impeach every Republican in the entire line of succession. That would require removing Pence, House Speaker Ryan, Senate President pro tempore Orrin Hatch, and the Secretaries of State and the Treasury. Finally, we get to an Independent: Welcome to the White House, Defense Secretary-now-President James “Mad Dog” Mattis! Wait, I don’t think that’s what liberals were dreaming of.

In fact, the Democrats are so far out of power that even if they could impeach Trump, Pence, Ryan, Hatch and a dozen Cabinet officials, it would just result in President Betsy DeVos.

Far be it from me to give liberals advice, but if they ever want to see another Democratic President, they need to give up these childish fantasies and tantrums, and start winning elections again by proving to the voters that they are capable of creating mature, intelligent policies that work in reality.

But then, I guess I’m the one dreaming now.

Please leave me a comment below.  I read them!

    Considering all the treasonous action o the O'Bamma Presidency like sending all that cash to Iran without authorization, its hard to imagine that there is a legitimate impeachable offense that President Trump would ever be guilty of. I am a champion for RESPECT for our President, our First Lady and the First Family. It's sad that the American people have to experience all the radical left disrespecting our President.

    Awesomely put! I love what roseann Barr recently stated, the trump supporters are the resistance, not these nuts in the streets! We r sick of free loaders and corrupt leaders stealing our future! We, the working class, will suffer. We may not be loud and vocal, but we have spoken through our votes! Thank you mike huckabee for supporting our president!

    While I concur the road to impeachment is exceptionally long and ultimately leads only to disappointment, let's not dissuade those that are bent on taking it; we are going to need the laughs over the next four years!

    This is funny really, because the left is screaming impeach. So far President Trump has debunked every tumor or sick claim against him! I wish the Democrats would just stop already and do their job! There is nothing productive about their resist at all cost movement! I guess we have to drag them kicking and screaming to a better life! Keep it up President Trump!

    Democrats talking impeachment? How Hilarious. I love this article. It goes to show how stupid and ignorant Democrats are. Didn't they go to civic class? Or graduate from high school? Unbelievable..Anyway thank you Gov Huckabee maybe these cry babies can stop their temper tantrums and finally learn something. Lol

    Thank You Governor Huckabee. You have crystallized the distorted reality of Liberal Democrats. They, and the so called mainstream media with their fake news, don't understand that the American mind is not compromised simply by encountering their political propaganda. They are not winning hearts and minds by deliberately going out to hurt our President. The truth always prevails. The President is a God sent and we also thank you and your family for your service to our country.

    Thank you for writing this! I have been reading things here and there that libs are "working" to impeach President Trump. I'm glad to know our country rests in some very capable, smart, business-minded hands and that our Lord is always working everything out for His glory and our good.

    I love it! There's absolutely no way the Democrats are going to get their way on impeaching Trump--it's ironclad. Thank you, Founding Fathers, for creating such a marvelous document as our US Constitution, keeping the presidency safe from those temper tantrum-wielding crybabies who didn't simply get whom they wanted.

    Mr Huckabee, just want to take a minute to say thank you for being such an outstanding person and Christian. May the Lord bless you over and over.

    Dear Governor Huckabee, Thank you so much for this. Not only did you outline the unintended consequences of the stupid impeachment idea, you concisely made the argument for the
    conservative case.
    Thank you

    This is a perfect response to such an imperfect group of folks who just canon accept reality!

    By the way - I was fortunate enough to hear you speak at the CAL fundraiser last night. Truly enjoyed seeing you in person. Very moving story about your daughter. The best to her...and to you. Thanks for continuing to be a voice of reason in this crazy environment.

    Mr. Mike Huckabee , We agree with you on the impeachment process. If the democrats had half a brain they would forget the idea of impeachment. It seems they have a choice of working for the America people but unfortunately I don't see them doing anything but destroying everything. The majority of Americans are sick and tired the democrats and the anarchist in the street. We hopethe. President will stick to his promises and carry a big tough stick. We hope he can rid most of the traitors in the Republican Party and the government. We pray that Trump and Pence will be protect from assination. We love to see you on t.v. And at Thomas Road Baptist Church. Keep up the good work.

    I really loved this post. Actually almost laughed out loud at the thought that the democrats could show themselves as capable or mature. Thanks for the humor.

    These people are so pathetic. The lefts meltdown is almost comical. I unfortunately live in Washington state - home to what I refer to as the "three stooges" - Governor Inslee, Attorney General Ferguson, and a lowlife judge no one had even heard of a month ago. Last summer Inslee said in an interview that we are a country of immigrants and we should let anyone in that wants to come here. He fails to realize that there weren't factions within groups that came to this country in the late 1800's and early 1900's that wanted to kill us and destroy our way of life

    Thank you for the information. I doubt any of the Democrats will read it but its clear impeachment of the president would not improve their cause.
    I would like to remind them when Mr. Obama was elected we accepted him. I am embarrassed by the actions of my fellow Americans.

    At a sunny cafe in Midtown Miami, my two scholarly dining companions could barely contain their glee as they savored every bite of the word, impeachment. "Dream on!" I laughed and popped a scrumptious piece of sushi in my mouth.

    Well said sir! It is extremely difficult to see post after post, and headline after headline with liberal whining and bemoaning they could not get a serial criminal elected. Plus the hypocrisy and double standards are astounding. If one does not believe like they do there are a plethora of names that come out of the woodwork. And heaven forbid I point out the abuses of the previous 8 years of destruction. Love your posts, long time fan of yours. God Bless you and your family.

    1. Clinton was impeached but was not removed from office. Why would Trump be removed?
    2. Sounds like a slippery slope. The Dems are just plain stupid. First they change the Senate rules for approved Presidential appointee to a simple majority and now see themselves being run over. Now that they lost the election, they want to eliminate the electoral college, ignoring the fact that they start each election with a huge advantage of electoral votes from CA and NY. Finally, if they impeach Trump, the next Dem President elected with a GOP-controlled Congress would get impeached just on the "get-even" principle.

    Mr. Huckabee, as a retired lawyer, I don't know how many times I have had to explain the rules of sucession to worried Trumpsters. Thank you for the humorous and enlightening post. It's refreshing to hear from someone who has kept a sense of equilibrium! Thank you.

    Hello Mr. Huckabee.. I just want to say that I so respect your theories on everything. I am a 78 yr old lady and have come to the conclusion that ALL democrats are "A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID". My husband and I unknowingly raised 2 adult children that are Democrates and 3 other children that think like we do. They are all college educated married with children of there own. This last holiday season was a nightmare for us. We were unenvited for Thanksgiving and the Christmas season came and went without seeingthese two families. One is now partially back into visiting now and then. ****please take note that the other family are teachers. Mom & Dad plus 4 kids out of 6. Makes one wonder about the why of this? 5 children college educated and 6 teachers? I follow you on Facebook and also Sara Palin. I have deleted all the so called "news experts". So just wanted to say Thank You for your articals I really appreciate your common sense .

    Hi Mike, some of these leftist progressive politicians don't seem to know these facts nor do they care to know. I think that so much of this stuff is just playing to their base. But in order for them to get a president elected they are going to have to get some other people to vote with them I don't see how the impeachment threat helps them. Besides that the Leftists are moving more to the left than they have been of late. This is also going to take some grand campaigning as I don't see that their base is going to expand into that alt left territory that they would need to go. Even Liz Warren is more right than some of these people but I'm not yet sure that she is going to be a force to contend with. I think that with some of these other countries in Europe having problems with the Muslim issue and being so far to the left people are going to put it all together. I think that all President Trump has to do is keep from making any kind of errors that would be considered high crimes and misdemeanors. Then I think he will be re elected.

    Thanks for your continued support of President Trump. Great article! I have wondered myself what the left would expect to gain by impeaching President Trump. It is as if they have this fantasy that some way that would still allow Hillary to be president. No way!!
    I know you have a ministry background and I am sure you have heard about the witches trying to bring satanic power against President Trump this weekend. I am saying extra prayers for him this weekend and I hope that you will as well. I believe that prayer made him President and that we need to pray for his success against all the evil coming against him. God bless you and keep the good messages coming! Miss your tv show!!

    Finally something to smile about tonight! Smile! Heck I was laughing at the irony! I have nearly ruined my TV remote hitting the mute button because every news, even local, has to report about some news organizations being excluded from the Whire House meeting. Then of course the FBI story...on an on and on. The Democrats are slowly digging their grave with a teaspoon, Ha!

Laughing, my father would ask me when I was little and digging in the dirt if I was digging my way to China. Your posts make my day!

    Mr. Huckabee, you are so right, First i want to thank you for standing by the president like you promised and you surely have done that, your word is your bond. How can these people even think about impeaching the president? This is who the people has elected and the whole lot of them need to work together to save our country. If not, they only care for their own greed instead of our beloved country. This is a great chance for america don't mess it up!

    Sir, you have just made my day. For the democrats to even consider impeaching President Trump, is by far the biggest waste of time in government. I will say that the liberals have definitely opened my eyes as to what they are all about and from what I see, it isn't much.
