In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump to Deliver State of the Union February 4

Well this could be fun. They likely will be holding the impeachment trial over in the Senate. And then everyone will go down to the Capitol Hill basement, grab a sandwich, and wall through the tunnels to the House to listen to the State of the Union.

Trump has accepted Pelosi’s “invitation,” the White House said.

  1. Well, except for the loons in the House, the State of the Union is pretty darn good…record low unemployment, higher wages, USMCA, bill to lower drug prices passed, easing of federal regulations, many industries doing well, stock market at record high, etc. etc. Winning! Winning! Winning!

  2. The ultimate political TV show.

    OT: Don’t underestimate Yang.
    Watching the debate last night, it was the “one of these is not like the others” feeling. Reminds of the Repub debates of 2016.

  3. Who says the trial will be going on?

    Here’s the thing: if Pelosi keeps trying to play hide the ball, Trump could quite reasonably ask the Supreme Court to weigh in.

    Recall, the standard for bills passed by Congress is, if ten days pass, Sundays not included, and Congress is still in session, the bill becomes law without a signature. But if Congress has adjourned, it’s considered a pocket veto.

    So, if the House passes something, and then skips town for a week and a half, is that something still legally viable, once they come back?

    If I were one of Trump’s legal eagles, I would go straight over to First Street and claim that the articles of impeachment should be nullified, due to procedural abuse by the House.

      1. While you have their ear, ask them if the “articles” could be voided as an unconstitutional bill of attainder.

        Because if they continue to refuse to send them to the Senate, then they’ll have simply decided the entire affair on their own. That would technically make the entire exercise a bill of pains and penalties, which, strictly speaking, is a non-capital version of a bill of attainder, which is a violation of the text of Article I, Section 9.
