Nancy Pelosi: “She doesn’t have to roar”


Image result for nancy pelosi

Last year, The Speaker of the house quietly said the Democrats will take over the house.  While many of the freshmen/women of the House were calling for the Presidents Impeachment, madam speaker quietly disagreed.   Not only could she read, she seems to understand the pulse of America.

The Mueller report clearly pointed out the abuses of the President, clearly demonstrated collusion and obstruction for those who had the time to read 448 pages.

Once again, she quietly, quieted most members of her party who were now screaming for the Presidents head.

Whitsleblowers concern about the Presidents action was simple.   Congress allocated $400 million dollars to  the Ukrainian Government an ally of the United States.  On July 18th the Trump Administration blocked the allocation.  Someone from the Office of Management and Budget reportedly said  her boss had instructed her not to approve any additional spending of security assistance for Ukraine until further notice.  The unusual hold up,without a real explanation troubled Republicans and Democrats, some moving to  rebuke the administration.

On July 25th, the world heard the conversation between newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and the President of the United States, Donald Trump.  After President Zelenskiy mentions wanting to purchase anti-tank missiles from the U.S., according to a rough transcript of the call released by the White House. Trump responds, “I would like you to do us a favor though.” Trump brings up investigating both the CrowdStrike conspiracy theory and the Bidens. He repeatedly tells Zelenskiy he should talk to Giuliani and Attorney General Barr.

IMPEACHABLE?

Once again, the Speaker read this one correctly.  Unlike the Muller Report , this one didn’t require reading.  She understand, she needs support of the public to impeach Donald Trump. Moving too quickly would feed into the Republican narrative that Democrats only agenda is to Impeach Trump that could hurt the party in the 2020 elections.

The only wrinkle is, the President has asked a foreign government for help in the last election without penalty.  However, when it comes to Quip Pro quo, the world heard our President ask for a favor, we also heard he say, his country (the  was going to do very well.   The question is will the majorities in the House and Senate, view these acts as Impeachable offences?

Can A President or Candidate ask a foreign national or country for help in a campaign? The Federal Election Commission say’s no.

Quid pro quo (“something for something” in Latin) is a Latin phrase used in English to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; “a favor for a favor”.

 

A Gift from Donald

When the President unilaterally decided to withdraw from Syria, he was condemned by Republicans and Democrats alike.  Veterans groups as well many active members of the Military has openly criticised the President

Two weeks ago ,dea Fox News poll found 51%  of voters want Trump to be impeached and removed from office.

Watergate  Comparisons

While more than 50 percent of Americans support removing Trump less than one month since the House’s inquiry began, it took much longer for the public to approve of impeaching Nixon even as the Watergate scandal slowly unfolded. Nixon eventually resigned rather than face impeachment.

According to the Pew Research Center, public opinion on removing Nixon from office only shifted after the House Judiciary Committee recommended that he be impeached in July 1974. Before that, support for impeachment never creeped above 50 percent. Even as the Senate held damning televised Watergate hearings in the spring of 1973, less than 20 percent of Americans adults thought he should be impeached.

The Nancy Surprise

After weeks of attempting to debunk the Whistleblower. Demanding open hearings, demanding an open vote.  Storming into the hearings.    Yesterday, the speaker of the House announced the House will vote Thursday week on a resolution to formalize and establish the parameters  of the Trump impeachment inquiry.

This has surprised some members of the Republican Party.  Many are angry, calling it a stunt!

Nancy can count. This week Fox News polling data indicates 55% of Americans support impeachment of the President.  The hearings would be Televised.

In an attempt destroy the credibility and patriotism of some of the witnesses the Republicans risk a blowback by the public. A public who is angry with the administration over Syria.

Does Nancy has have another surprise?  If she does, it will direct, measured and respectful. Nancy, doesn’t roar, she doesn’t have to.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
