Solid majority thinks Trump abused his power and should have complied with impeachment inquiry

 

Democrats landed on drafting just two articles of impeachment narrowly focused on Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal for multiple reasons. But one of those factors is surely that American voters largely support the premise of both articles—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—even if they still don’t support removing Trump from office over it.

To determine whether voters think Trump abused his powers, FiveThirtyEight went back and averaged eight high-quality polls from late September to late November testing the abuse of power question.

 
 
 

We found that 54 percent of Americans believe Trump either abused his power or acted in his own self-interest, while 39 percent said he had not. That’s basically in line with the share of Americans who believe Trump committed an impeachable offense, according to our own polling with Ipsos.

Civiqs polling is roughly similar, with 53% saying he committed impeachable offenses, while 45% say he has not. FiveThirtyEight similarly revisited several polls released since the impeachment inquiry began that tested perceptions of whether Trump has adequately cooperated with the inquiry.

In a Suffolk poll conducted in late October, 66 percent of Americans agreed that the White House has an obligation to comply with subpoenas from the House committees demanding testimony and documents. A Quinnipiac poll released about a month later found that 76 percent of the public thought Trump should comply fully with the impeachment inquiry.

But while solid majorities say Trump should have complied, just 48% of voters in a late November Economist/YouGov poll disapproved of his decision to ignore congressional subpoenas, while 33% approved and 18% were unsure what they thought. The result suggests that even if strong majorities favored Trump’s compliance, some people weren’t exactly sure what to think about Trump’s level of cooperation. A more recent early-December Monmouth poll, however, found that 61% of voters think Trump did not cooperate (just 31% think he did) and 53% say he did so specifically to hinder the investigation (while 35% say he had legitimate reasons).  https://www.alternet.org/2019/12/solid-majority-thinks-trump-abused-his-power-and-should-have-complied-with-impeachment-inquiry/?utm_source=push_notifications

Still getting acquitted and reelected. 

aquitted yes re elected, the opera isn't over till the fat lady sings , whites are rapidly becoming a minority this is your last gasp, it will pass eventually this too shall pass 

"This too shall pass" (Persian: این نیز بگذرد‎, romanizedīn nīz bogzarad) is a Persian adage translated and used in multiple languages. It reflects on the temporary nature, or ephemerality, of the human condition. The general sentiment is often expressed in wisdom literature throughout history and across cultures, although the specific phrase seems to have originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets such as Rumi.

It is known in the Western world primarily due to a 19th-century retelling of Persian fable by the English poet Edward FitzGerald. It was also notably employed in a speech by Abraham Lincoln before he became the sixteenth President of the United States.     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_too_shall_pass  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_too_shall_pass  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_too_shall_pass

It was also used in 1852, in a retelling of the fable entitled "Solomon's Seal" by the English poet Edward FitzGerald.[3][better source needed] In it, a sultan requests of King Solomon a sentence that would always be true in good times or bad; Solomon responds, "This too will pass away".[4] On September 30, 1859, Abraham Lincoln recounted a similar story:

It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction![5][6]

Whites still have most of the money and land. We just might start to pushback if our demise is celebrated in any condescending fashion. Cheer the death of whites at your peril.

A businessman who helped broker a meeting between an ally of President Donald Trump and an official of the Russian government has been indicted for allegedly funneling millions in illegal campaign contributions to support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

George Nader, who was charged in another case earlier this year with child trafficking and transporting child pornography, was one of seven people named in an indictment unsealed in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night involving the campaign payments.

 

Nader, 60, is charged with funneling money to Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, 48, of Los Angeles in order to circumvent federal election laws that restrict the amount of donations from a specific individual and where that money is actually coming from, prosecutors say.

If Trump is such a threat to National Security it makes no sense to delay impeachment.

No,

 

Rich whites support mass migration. There will be no pushback. Our race will be replaced entirely within 60 years.

Not a shot will be fired.

 

Get real. We can't win.

We need to start thinking about being Americans and forget race as  being politically significant.

No one has to oppose or support the "death of White America". Everybody dies. White Americans do not reproduce in numbers to maintain a majority. Supporting immortality would be a lost cause.

Racism has nothing to do with the human biological function of tribalism.

 

In the United States the majority of blacks vote one way and whites another.

 

Stop pretending that doesn't matter. It's because of childish eutopia thinking like your that no actual racial problems are talked about.

 

You think white displacement is fine. There are no races you think. Well there are. Eliminating whites wont make your life better.

Being as I am White, I am opposed to "White displacement"  occurring. What is happening is that  Whites are becoming a smaller percentage of the total population and non-Whites ( only some of whom are Blacks) are in an increasing percentage of the population.

There are people with darker complexions, just as there are people with blue eyes, brown eyes,  green eyes and hazel eyes. Income and geography have more to do with the way they think than "race".

I lived in Mexico for several years, and visit the Dominican Republic regularly. Most families have members who look more African, more European, more Indigenous or mixed, and what we call "race" is of minimal importance compared to the US.

 

Your views are provincial, childish and silly.

There is no serious  movement to "eliminate White people" in this country.

Racism is childish. It is childish everywhere. the same is true of tribalism.

 

The Negroes are fighting for Black-Power.

Yes, I understand the concept of ……….."color-blind, non-racism".  In Heaven that will be the paradigm.

But this is Earth.    Evil Exists.         We MUST...……..fight …………..for our tribe.   K-Dog will fight for his tribe.  

And so will I.

That is why we cannot sit on bench...….and watch them claim the battlefield.

 

We are talking about the survival...of our children.

Taipan thinks he is a Libertarian, but he gets most of his ideas from  the movies, it seems. Libertarians are NOT segregationists or White supremacists.

You cannot impose Libertarians on people with guns.

I have news for you that you may find encouraging. Race is merely a social construct; something we made up. We are all far more alike than we are different. We are all members of the species homo sapiens. We can lose if we destroy the planet.
