The Democrats in Congress have a dirty little secret. They are merely puppets attached to the strings of their master, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

With the slightest twitch of his fingers, Schumer had his puppets deliver an embarrassing circus performance intended to derail an event of national significance: the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Before the start of that recent hearing, Schumer organized a phone call with his Democrat colleagues, discussing his strategy for the coming event. All of his loyal soldiers faithfully carried out their orders, repeatedly interrupting Republican lawmakers and delaying the process for hours.

It was especially notable that this planning meeting was not led by one of the Democrat leaders on the Senate Judiciary Committee such as Dianne Feinstein, Patrick Leahy, or Dick Durbin. No, it was the Grand Puppet Master himself.

But the political theater in Congress is only a small part of a much bigger agenda to take down President Trump. And if the Democrats win a majority in the coming election--even if only in the House--Schumer and his minions, including the red-state Democrats, will push their caucus to impeach the commander-in-chief at all costs.

Unlikely? Think again. While the Democrats like to keep their cards close to the vest, Schumer revealed his real take on impeachment during a Labor Day parade.

"When are you all going to impeach [President Donald] Trump?" one onlooker asked the senator as he marched along a street in Brooklyn. "The sooner the better," Schumer replied, adding that the Democrats "gotta get a few Republicans" first.

This is further proof of the Democrats' real intentions and shows who's fully in command of leading them down the impeachment path.

Instead of embracing the results of the 2016 election and working with President Trump to restore America to peace and prosperity, Schumer publicly confessed that the Democrats are planning to remove the commander-in-chief from office without an election. Clearly, when Democrats such as Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi downplay impeachment ahead of the midterms, they're using pure deception.

For a political party that pretends to be concerned about the integrity of our presidential elections, the Democrats should spend more time reflecting on how their radical agenda threatens to undermine the democratic process and the will of the people.

While some Democrats may position themselves as the independent voices of their party, they do so only to deceive the American people into supporting them this November. Ultimately, the Democrats will all fall in line behind Schumer.

For the last two years, the Senate minority leader has been leading his party's opposition strategy, and has set the Democrats' agenda on immigration, tax reform, and other major Trump agenda items. In fact, not a single Democrat senator voted in favor of the president's health-care fix or historic tax cuts.

Despite feigning openness to President Trump's agenda, many red-state Democrats in the Senate--who have had the most to lose by siding with their party platform--ended up opposing the administration's policies. Ultimately, they cared more about doing Chuck Schumer's bidding than doing the right thing for the American people.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, for example, has occasionally supported President Trump's economic agenda, but voted against tax cuts for American workers and businesses.

Likewise, Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota has also echoed Republicans on the economy, but still voted no on the GOP tax reform bill.

Red-state Democrats like Manchin and Heitkamp prove that a puppet will always be a puppet, even when dressing the part of part-time Trump supporter.

Democrats in Congress are not here to represent the American people. They are only in office to please their party masters. Time and again, Schumer has personally orchestrated the sleazy tactics of the fringe as he did for the Kavanaugh hearings and has forced dissidents to support the party platform.

If the Democrats take control of Congress in November, their coordinated campaign to bring down President Trump will kick into full gear. And Chuck Schumer, the Grand Puppet Master, will be the one pulling the strings.


Mike Huckabee was the 44th governor of Arkansas.

    In hearing the bizarre accusation from one Individual that as a post graduate,( assuming that indicates over 18) she attended approximately 10 parties where young girls were systematically given drugs and gang raped and did nothing but continue to return to the scene, I have a legal question. Since there is no statute of limitations in Maryland relative to sexual assault, can she not be arrested for contributing to the delinquency of minors.? After all to continue to return must indicate an approval and desire to be included. If she was not a contributing participant even if she did not report the activities the least she would have done was not continue to return after seeing this activity the first time. Since she is admitting being involved, I would like to see her held accountable for silently allowing these illegal activities to continue to take place.

    EXCELLENT article Governor Huckabee! Thank you giving the American people the real truth and nothing but.
    As many have already commented, we do have to help our government by stepping up and VOTING so that there will always be "the government of the people, by the people, for the people"!

    We serve an Almighty Lord God Who is the One in control of all things. As believers in Christ, we need to stand firm, do whatever we are able to do to fight evil in the power of the Holy Spirit, get involved, get informed, and get out to vote. Prayer is our greatest weapon, and we need to wield it daily. Praying for you, Mike, and for our leaders in Washington. May we find the strength to stand, fight, and win a victory this November.

    While I agree that Shumer is a puppet master - I say the ultimate puppet master is none other than George Soros and his $$.

    I would be willing to bet that Soros is pulling Schummer's strings

    Thanks to the 6 of you who commented ahead of me. I agree with each of you. I think our best choice is prayer and trust in our faithful God of creation and yielding to His personal direction for each of us to get educated, encourage voting and voting our conscience ourselves. God bless America. He was the basis upon which the Founding Fathers acted.

    I cannot understand how anyone can be led down "the primrose path" by another individual. Don't they have any ideas of their own? Can't they think about right and wrong by themselves? What has happened to America? They became senators by being voted in their individual states. Do all the people that voted for them what to be led by one person in the whole Democratic party? Schumer isn't God! Why is everyone so afraid of him that they do (vote) whatever he says? Use your brains, people! You're there because you were trusted to do the right thing, and not become puppets for a miserable, self centered, evil man. God help all of you to open your eyes, and see what is actually going on in your party.

    I just attended President Trump's rally in Springfield, MO in support of Republican candidate Josh Hawley, and was encouraged by the number of people that came especially young people. I saw not one conflict among the crowd, they left the streets clean and conducted themselves as good Americans. Contrast that to the bunch that asked your daughter and family to leave a restaurant and the bunch that just assaulted Senator Cruise and his wife, and the democratic senators and congress members who openly advocate violence to discourage conservative voters. Yes this bunch will impeach Trump and are willing to destroy America as we know it and make it a failing Socialist State.

    Back to the Trump Rally, the media exaggerated the number of demonstrators, there wasn't but a few next to the crowd that the media played down, that lined up for miles to see the President. Only a small percentage of the crowd even got into the arena. People of all colors and ages, from several states came.

    So, based upon the enthusiasm of that crowd and others that he has, I can only hope the polls are wrong again and that it is a legal and legitimate election.

    I hate to think what might happen if the Socialists succeed in impeaching the President. Will the good people that support Trump, have enough to not tolerate it any longer?

    I believe you are right on! What these demons are doing is indescribable! I have coined a new term for it, it is a "BLUE COUP"! Our only hope is that Almighty God will open the eyes of enough voters in Nov. to crush the heads of these Blue snakes! Seriously, we all need to PRAY and put legs, and voices to our prayer! I want to think that true, God fearing, Americans will see through what these snakes are orchestrating and we will witness a "Red Wave"!!! Never in my 77 years have I seen anything like it! Vengeance belongs to the LORD! He will repay!

    The fact that the majority of the Republican congress seem to be allowing Schumer and his ilk to get by with this is even more maddening.

    Why isn't anyone covering this piece of absolutely repulsive, disgusting, anti-voter piece of trash our RINO Congress (not Republican or conservative) is putting forth and hiding within another bill??!!!!!
