President Trump Impeached a Second Time

| January 13, 2021

President Trump became the first President in US history to be impeached twice. The House of Representatives impeached President Trump today based on their claims that he incited an insurrection. The vote to impeach was 232 to 197; Ten Republicans also voted to impeach President Trump.

From Fox News:

“The president of the United States instigated an attempted coup in this country,” McGovern continued. “People died. Everybody should be outraged. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican. If this is not an impeachable offense. I don’t know what the hell is. This president is not fit to remain in office.”

Unlike the last House impeachment of Trump in December 2019 for soliciting foreign interference in the presidential election, Democrats had GOP support. Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, backed impeachment because she said the violent attack at the Capitol could not have happened without Trump.

“The president of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” said Cheney, who is from Wyoming. “Everything that followed was his doing.”

Most Republicans, however, voted against the rushed impeachment because Trump is already exiting office and the political action would do little to unite a fractured country. Some die-hard Trump supporters in the House also believe Trump is not responsible for the violent actions of his supporters since the president specifically didn’t call for violence.

This looks like it was shotgunned to the floor, without a debate taking place in committee. You could read more on Fox News.

    The ironic thing is the Democrats had at least two people speak at Trumps impeachment for inciting violence who by their own standards incited violence. I guess this means that when the Republicans take control of the House the Democrats should have no problem with them impeaching a Democrat President with no investigation and zero witnesses and based off of what they think he actually meant. Who am I kidding, Democrats really hate it when Republicans follow precedent set by Democrats.

  2. Devtun says:

    So confirmation hearings for Senator Biden’s cabinet will be jammed up for weeks or months. Brilliant.

  3. Deckie says:

    Lars’ third thumb is probably throbbing with joy right now.

    Probably outside burning an American flag in celebration.

    • ChipNASA says:

      OK I’ve heard a *LOT* of euphemisms in my time, “Third Thumb” is now new to me.
      I’m just struggling for the moment a little to figure out how to fit it in to the The Hemisphere of Insults®™ …hmmmmm…thinking, thinking, thinking….

      “THUMBS UP!!!! FUCKING LOLZ!!!!
      😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

  4. Slow Joe says:

    Who are those 10 traitors who supported the Democrats. We need a list.

    (Yes, I am taking a page from the Left and labeling all our political enemies as traitors)

  5. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Washington DC didn’t turn into such a filthy whorehouse in the past few years, the election of President Trump simply revealed it.

    • MSG Eric says:

      My perspective: Trump has done things this past four years “publicly” that the people in DC have been doing privately for decades.

      That’s the biggest reason why they hate him so much, not because he’s “unprofessional” or “egotistic” or any of that stuff, it’s because everyone sees what he does versus their keeping it all quiet and out of the news / social media.

  6. xyzzy says:

    Sedition trials for all four insurrectionists in the picture at the top of this page are in order. You don’t get to use fighting words like that and just walk away.

    After that, sedition trials for the scumbags that orchestrated the attack on the Capitol.

    Zero 👏🏼 Tolerance 👏🏼 For 👏🏼 Sedition 👏🏼 And 👏🏼 Insurrection 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  7. Tallywhagger says:

    Trump not only owned them once, he now has owned them twice and they have no idea how this makes them look.

    Failed government that has become the enemy of tens of millions of Americans. Do they think that there will be impunity, that there will be no repercussion, no payback?

    Every dog has its day, it’ll be our time, after awhile. Payback is a bitch and it’s worth waiting for the moment.

    In the moment, what better way to rebuke government than to remove the children from government schools? Teach them the truth and teach it right now.

    May God damn Pelosi and her genome. OTOH, who knows what the Trumpster may come up with? He prevented Hillary, that may just be the opening act, looking for a floor show 🙂

    • Mason says:

      They’re so deluded they think that this makes them look stronger come mid-terms. All it does is help prove Trump right that the Deep State exists and the head of the serpent are career politicians.

      This makes Trump a martyr. His supporters will only be more enraged and motivated. It’s almost like they want division and violence. They couldn’t just let Trump leave office and spend four years playing the opposition shadow government game of “what if”.

      • 5JC says:

        What do you mean “almost”? They rioted all year, are rioting still, and now in classic fashion are trying to blame it on the other guy.

        Nancy says she feels “heartbroken” over singing the articles of impeachment. They want the violence, they absolutely need the violence to justify their agenda. She will feel heartbroken as shit when she starts ripping up the Constitution faster than SOU address.

    • xyzzy says:

      🍺 <—Tallywhagger, this is for you. You earned it.

      Well Said! 👍🏼👏🏼

    Lars is gonna get blood blisters on his special purpose.

    • Commissar Pooper's Narcissism says:

      You guys made me look like a bloody fool! Of course you guys did, what’s wrong with me!

    • ChipNASA says:

      OK, GODDAMN IT!!! You and Deckie with your euphemisms and I have no idea how I’m going to add “Third Thumb” and now “Blood Blisters …Special Purpose” into the The Hemisphere of Insults®™

      Recommendations?

      This shit is YOUR fault.

      • Sapper3307 says:

        Laser pointer?

      • KoB says:

        “…the Blood Blisters that have been raised on your Third Thumb due to the use of your Special Purpose Magnifying Glass and eyebrow tweezers…”

        “…the Blood Blisters you have raised on your Third Thumb have no Special Purpose…”

        • ChipNASA says:

          Ooooh, nice, I think I’m gonna go with your first one. Isn’t that what they always say? Never change your answer, go with your first thought? Something like that. Unless you’re absolutely certain when checking your work.
          ANYWAYS, (lolzzzz) I like the first one so there.

          Ahem, therefore, I have also contributed and edited the following entry from all of your recent contributions….

          KoB, Sapper3307 and Deckie “… this valor poacher thinks he’s so hot and such an intellect, that he gets a semi chub (all that he is able) by his actions and subsequently, is in danger of raising blood blisters on his Third Thumb due to the chronic use of his Special Purpose Magnifying Glass and eyebrow tweezers’ …

          Thank you all very much for your contribution and I have to run up the thread as I hear my name being called by KoB

            roflolmfao!!!!
            Every time I read the HoI (now GoI? Globe of Insults?) I LOL for hours.

    • Commie-Tsar says:

      I’m wearing my pink pussy hat and touching my “special purpose” as I type this!!!

  9. Sapper3307 says:

    Does anybody some new book deals for elected officials soon? Its not bribery to pay for a book nobody buys.

  10. KoB says:

    If it is not obvious by now that BOTH PARTIES of our grubermint are corrupt self centered power mad despots, then I don’t know what it will take to convince people.

    We’re next…Get ready little Lady.

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

      Somewhere I read, “two wings of the same bird”. Fits the UniParty.

  11. Mason says:

    I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.

    That’s Trump’s “incitement” to riot. This is such a colossally stupid reason to impeach a president that, like everything else the Democrats do, it’s only a matter of time before it gets used against them. With the incendiary talk of revolutions and “changing the country” they engage in, they really can’t see further than the ends of their own noses.

    The Pelosi Rule will be used against a Democrat president as soon as the Republicans take both houses. This is the way they want to play the game I guess.

    The Democrats couldn’t even make it to Sleepy Joe’s inauguration before they started to divide and sow discontent. So much for their lip-service to unity and healing.

    • OWB says:

      Unless somebody submits impeachment charges before then. Like on Jan 21.

    • Forest Bondurant says:

      Obviously, the Dems want the impeachment to stick this time so Trump can’t run for any elected office (e.g. another run in 2024), because if he were to try again, they’d have to do their level best to prevent him being elected, and everything that implies would interfere with them destroying the country.

      Like a fellow TAH member posted awhile back, Trump is a speedbump. The ultimate goal is to get at the American people and destroy their rights, and subjugate them to the will of the government.

    • rgr769 says:

      Also, the troublemakers at the Capitol building were already pushing over and past barricades before Trump uttered those words. Anyone else surprised many of them were in black. and wearing helmets?

    Quick before Big Tech takes this down!

    Enjoy…We Did!

  13. Hate_me says:

    First POTUS to be impeached twice, and likely the first to survive impeachment twice (even if on a technicality). Probably not the only one for long, as it’s an ugly precedent.

    If by some twist of reality they actually manage to convict, technically that makes him the only sitting American President since Washington to lead troops – and the first to actually lead them in combat.

    Truly an historic presidency!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      McConnell has shut it down: no Constitutional authority to impeach Trump when he leaves.

      In a word ZERO chance to impeach Trump after he leaves office.

      The tears will be flowing. The weeping! The wailing! Stuff some cotton into your ears if you want to get a good night’s sleep… or just have a quick toast to reality.

      • Hate_me says:

        I agree with your reasoning, but wouldn’t be surprised if they apply their same illogic in reading his speech as inciteful when reading the Constitution as saying they can impeach anyone other than the “President.”

        Only thing they seem to do well is whip.

        • 11B-Mailclerk says:

          If they can “impeachment trial” a not-in-office Trump, to prevent him from running, can they then not impeach any opposing candidate and prevent meaningful elections?

  14. Roh-Dog says:

    I’ve said it once, and hundreds of times, have; food, water, meds, freedom seeds and a fishing rod.

    worst kept secrets are the best.

    there are no accidents.

    trust the plan was a lie.

    The Republic endures.

    -Out-

    (but for real, I don’t know a damn thing. Best entertainment show I’ve ever watched! The Apprentice ain’t got shit on wtf is going on right now! but seriously, after the 20th I may be back, maybe. Get food.)

  15. 5JC says:

    The Democrats are going to get their wish.

  16. Sapper3307 says:

    Some people will say “time to burry them” others will say “time to dig them up”.

  17. Amateur Historian says:

    Great! /Sarc

    Not even keeping up pretenses that this process isn’t being used for political purposes.

    Hasn’t previous impeachment votes been preceeded by a thorough and impassioned debate?

  18. Berliner says:

    Nancy and her co-conspirators excuse is that it wasn’t inciteful when they said it, they were just opining it aloud in wonderment, not aware of the press who took down their words.

  19. David says:

    Apropos of absolutely nothing, 535 bullets.

  20. C2Show says:

    All Trump had to do was tell those morons to go home. Now look at what it has cost.

    Sure, not all Trumpites are equal, but you guys gotta admit this was just a stupid.

    Could have resolved this in so many ways. Now we got bullshit drama. And again, International audiences look at us as if we are buffoons.

    • Slow Joe says:

      Why do you care so much about international audiences?

      I find repugnant the lack of economic freedoms and constitutional rights in Europe, where Big Gruberment rules over their serfs, and then pretend to educate us on civic rights and diplomacy.

      Even with the Political Civil War the Left has unleashed on our country, America is the freest nation in the world.

    • Ret_25X says:

      NPC 45678,

      Again with the false BS.

      Your canard deprives the PEOPLE of agency. As if they are robots who must do only what Trump says to do.

      Are your feelings hurt that they dared enter your temple of fellatio and bondage?

    • USMC Steve says:

      No, he didn’t have to. They had every right to be there and to protest. Evidence now surfacing from the Feeble Bureau of Instigation shows this was planned and they were aware of it well before it happened. Several of the stormers were identified as Antifa/BLDM agitators. This was a false flag operation and nothing more.

      • OWB says:

        Even the media told us about it before it happened. They may have disappeared it by now, but I distinctly remember hearing them talk about the chatter among the usual suspects prior to the event. No, not at a single source. No, not from a “right wing” news source but among lefty propogandists. They were almost gleeful that their lefty agitators were planning to disrupt things while all those evil Trumpies were assembled.

        • 11B-Mailclerk says:

          That means

          Trump is a Time Traveller!

          His words went back in time to instigate the yahoos so they would go to his rally to hear his call!

          Time Travel! Amazing!

          • OWB says:

            Indeed. While he is simultaneously the dumbest man on the planet AND a clever manipulator. It all makes sense now, right?

  21. Hate_me says:

    Respectfully, we are buffoons in a great many ways.

    Even when we ignore timelines and accuse someone of being both an idiot and criminal mastermind in the same breath.

  22. 5JC says:

    I think Tommy Tubberville has had the best response so far. Common sense like that has MIA from congress for a long time.

  23. OWB says:

    And with this action, Nancy Pelosi has made her mark as the silliest Speaker in US history. Way to go, Nancy!

    • SFC D says:

      Well, when you consider that she’s been speaker for most of the US’s existence…

      • ninja says:

        SFC D:

        As the John Ross guy pointed out in his video, Plastic Woman Nancy and Hiden Biden both have been DC Swamp Critters FOR YEARS and President Trump 4 years, yet everything has been Trump’s fault.

        😉😎
