Well, that’s certainly sweet of you, Mr. Pence. – In case you hadn’t heard, Mike Pence sent a letter over to San Fran Nan last night informing her that he wouldn’t be cooperating in any clearly unconstitutional effort to invoke the 25th Amendment against a President who is clearly not “incapaciated,” as the amendment requires:

So, we got that going for us.
The UniParty hangs together. – Meanwhile, though, rumors are flying that Mitch McConnell is fully supportive of Pelosi’s idiotic impeachment effort:
From a story at fading Fox News:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News.
It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict.
One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump.[End]
Ok, well, to give Cocaine Mitch proper credit, it should be clear that this is not a “partisan exercise” in the Democrat/Republican sense of that phrase. No, this impeachment is a UniParty event involving the Democans and Republicrats acting in concert with one another now that McConnell’s real party – the Republicrats – no longer have to work within the strictures of trying to pretend they support a GOP president.
Get all that?
The last four years have been an aberration for the GOP in congress, a period of time during which they have been forced by Trump’s massive support base to actually behave like Republicans most of the time and work in the interests of the people who elected them. McConnell and his fellow establishment Republicrats are now betting that, once Trump is no longer President, they can simply discard him and go back to their old swampish ways without having to worry about paying any political price for doing that come future election days.
And it’s not just McConnell: We’ve already noted that Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, a fervent Trump hater from way back who wanted to prevent Brett Kavanaugh from sitting on the Supreme Court, is also in favor of impeaching the President, and other RINOs like Mitt Romney and Susan Collins will most certainly join in the piling on once the single impeachment article is delivered to the Senate from the House.
Over in the House, Republicrat Neo-Con Liz Cheney, who, along with her daddy is extremely angry that President Trump refused to engage our military in any new wars on his watch, announced that she will vote in favor of impeachment when the Democrats roll it out.

Cheney’s from Wyoming, one of the most conservative states in the nation. In taking this action, she ensures she will face a strong primary opponent in 2022 and will be at high risk of losing her seat in congress. But she is willing to risk that sacrifice to pay her dues to remain a member in good standing of the Swamp’s war-mongering UniParty. And she has fellow fake Republican war-mongers like John Kato of New York, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Fred Upton of Michigan and Jaime Beutler of Washington joining in the fun with her.
None of what the Swamp/Deep State is doing to this anti-communist, anti-war President should surprise us. After all, the last anti-communist, anti-war president, Ronald Reagan, was shot and almost killed as he left the Washington Hilton in 1981. The most recent anti-communist, anti-war president before Reagan, John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in a Dealey Plaza crossfire in 1963.
But this is the 21st century and assassinations and attempted assassinations with guns have fallen out of favor, so the UniParty has spent the last four years trying everything it could think of to remove the outsider in their midst via a never-ending slow motion coup d’etat. All of those past efforts having now failed and with just a week remaining in his term, the swamp rats hope to execute an after-the-fact impeachment and removal process that will prevent Trump from running for the presidency again in 2024.
The fake Republicans supporting the effort believe you are all so shallow-minded that you will forget all about their own mendacity by the time Election Day 2022 comes around. That is truly the level of abject contempt they hold for their own voters.
It’s the same contempt they have always held for Donald Trump, who they are now killing with a death by a thousand cuts. If they can do it to him, they sure has hell can do it to all of us.
That is all.
