Tuesday, House Democrats passed a resolution calling on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Trump from office, which Pence promptly rejected.

Also, six House Republicans introduced a resolution to censure Trump, but Democrats are intent on impeaching him again, in a process that starts today.

At least five Republicans, including Rep. Liz Cheney, say they will vote to impeach. They blame his challenge of the vote and his rhetoric for inciting last week’s Capitol riot. I also disapproved of his rhetoric, but it’s not treason to challenge a vote (Nancy Pelosi herself spread distrust in the 2016 vote), and nothing Trump said in his speech or on Twitter was an incitement to violence. Of course, that’s a dispute that would normally be hashed out by attorneys in an impeachment proceeding, but this House has no time for trivialities like evidence or due process, so they’re just barreling ahead with a vote to impeach.

Some Republicans in the Senate are reportedly leaning toward voting to impeach (it’s rumored that even Mitch McConnell may be among them), but most other Republicans seem to think it’s just divisive political theater at a time when we need calm and unity. So the chances of a two-thirds vote are virtually nil, even if you could impeach someone who’s already left office. Nobody seems to agree on that point.

Legal analysts disagree, but all admit that the Constitution says nothing about it other than that a President is removed from office after being impeached. I’m not a legal scholar, but I assume the Founders didn’t put anything about impeaching departed Presidents into the Constitution because they never imagined that Americans would elect leaders who were dumb enough to come up with an idea like that.

But what do the American people think about all this late-stage impeachment deja vu? I’ve told you that before you believe any poll, take a look at the sample size and breakdown. Right now, the media are trumpeting a poll claiming that “Americans narrowly back Trump’s impeachment, resignation.” That poll claims that Americans back Congress starting impeachment proceedings by 48-44 percent.

Here’s the part they don’t talk about so much: the poll sample was 813 Democrats to 595 Republicans and 588 independents. Independents were split 50-50, so they had to oversample Democrats by about 30% to get a 4% lead, and the pro-impeachment vote was still less than 50%. That’s with the media giving us a 24/7 pro-impeachment drumbeat and social media and Big Tech trying to silence any opposition.

What I think is a more accurate poll by McLaughlin & Associates, with a sample reflective of the 2020 election, found that 60% of voters think impeachment is a waste of time and money, 74% think it’s politically motivated to keep Trump from running again, 73% think they should be dealing with the coronavirus instead, and 65% think Pelosi and Biden are keeping the country divided. Also, 70% believe Big Tech companies are too powerful and need to be regulated, and 74% agree that if they can take away the President’s free speech, they can take away any American’s right to free speech.

All this proves that despite what the propaganda press is telling us, most Americans are smart enough to know when they’re being bamboozled.

    When President Trumps talks, you can’t twist and turn his words into something violent,, when he said, get out there and fight for our country,, he didn’t mean that literally, it’s a challenge to “move” I say things like that every day, does not mean I am gearing up to punch somebody!!!! Leave the man alone????

    They have SO much hate they can’t see straight. Hate is a demon and it’s obvious the Democrats have plenty!

    Over the past few decades it has become obvious that numerous politicians in the US congress have openly shown disdain for the political party and the people they allegedly represent. These self entitled politicians falsely ran for office under a false flag as they knew they would never be elected if they were honest and ran under the other flag.
    I firmly believe that there is not one honest politician in the halls of the US congress. I have challenged politicians before to prove me wrong. Not even ONE has responded.

    I believe in the McLaughlin and Associates poll as all the craziness coming out of Washington over what Trump has done is nothing the likes of what we have witnessed all summer long. And Big Teck (which is in bed with the democrats) has shown a hand that is scary and needs shut down. Our President has long know of the shenanigan's ( which have come to light) ongoing in Washington and has work hard to over throw them. It is a sad sad day in American.

    I think Nancy Pelosi, all her cronies, and all the RINO's should be impeached. They are making
    fools of themselves, and the world is watching. They are bringing down the U.S.A. along with them.
    I think it is too late to "Make America Great Again." But I will continue to be a Trump supporter.
    He has done the best job under duress circumstances. May God strengthen and bless him and
    his family.

    I WATCHED THE IMPEACHMENT NONSENSE TODAY, IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY, IT WAS WITHOUT HEARINGS, WITHOUT DUE PROCESS, AND NO EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE AN IMPEACHMENT. THEY HAD NOTHING. I ALSO LEARNED SOMETHING INTERESTING WHICH COMES AS NO SURPRISE AS THE FBI INVESTIGATING THE INCIDENT SEEMS TO FEEL THIS MAY HAVE BEEN A PLANNED ATTACK. COULD THIS HAVE ALL BEEN PLANNED SO THEY COULD HANG AN IMPEACHMENT ON OUR POTUS TRUMP WHICH WOULD BLOCK HIM FROM RUNNING AGAIN IN AN POLITICAL OFFICE. THIS WOULD ERASE THE THREAT OF DEALING WITH SUCH A POPULAR PRESIDENT AGAIN, FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

    Hello Governor I watch you each week and always am very interested in your monologue....Our US has gone mad...I watched the impeachment which was done in one day and did not follow protocol...it only followed hate. I am ashamed to be called an American and if things were different I would move to Canada... This is a joke of a government..there are very few Christian in this government! I am shocked and dismayed at the lifetime positions given to these people. One city at a time they are killing America as they live their yuppie lives.. I am sickened these people are off the rail and are funded by the puppet masters who are Obama, Clinton, Soros, Gates and the list goes on. Pelosi and Schumer spread hate and spew their personal opinions...
    Only on judgement day will this be reckoned...Thank you and your daughter for sharing the light in this dim world.

    What a waste of money  Does anybody know how much it cost us for  them to go thru this whole impeachment process? I've really never been a person to pay attention to all of these politicians. But I am definitely awake now.
