    The world would be better off without the impeachment "trial". The US constitution mangles jurisprudential terms like "trial, verdict, guilty, acquitted" with the legislative domain. As if an impeachment trial was a jurisprudential trial and not a political process. Impeachment comes from empecher, which is a French verb, and which means "to accelerate", in this context to accelerate the ending of a presidential term, which means to remove a president from office sooner than the end of his term. Now the former president is already out. US political culture would be better off without this 2nd impeachment "trial" and 2nd "acquittal". Romney says, impeaching after end of term is constitutional. Maybe so.

    It does not matter what "the majority" of Europeans think. Many Europeans do not grasp the roots of American power: Technology. Cooperation. Size. Natural resources. Soil. Climate. Foe-free geography. Currency union. Federal debt underwriting. Federal military bringing states to heel if need be. Grit. Russia is no big problem. In fact Russia is 90% Godsend and 10% nuisance. Cultured. Cooperative. Perennial battle with inhospitable nature. Organized. Big. Positive. Capricious. Exciting. Advanced. Funny. Covers Europe's back. Successful. If not as successful as the USA. Their cyberwarfarce has the very benign consequence that we harden our systems. When important things happen, Russia cooperates, like against Hitler and against the Taliban. Biden off to no-showboat Realpolitik with Russia. I rout for him. China is a much bigger issue because it is a very populous, cultured, organized, technology-capable, focussed, non-corrupt, aspiring hegemon. Most Europeans do not grasp the roots of Chinese weakness: Conformity. Fear. Opportunism. Government mandated atheism. Foes all around. Every Renminbi Chinas spends is offset by a renminbi of a local foe. Zero to negative soft power. That said: Trade is good. We encourage the doves in Beijing by vesting Beijings interest in peace with her neighbors. Go Taiwan!

    Evey country is tired of China. Trump was the only leader with enough balls to stand up to China. Sleepy Joe owes China. His first executive order was to get back in the Paris Accord. Killing USA jobs and strengthening China industry as they don't have to follow same regulations until after 2030. He will reverse all Trump policies on fair trade and drop all tariffs. Sleepy Joe is just a puppet for Rice, Sanders and all the socialists.

    Look at his first week.

    Reverse Trump immigration policies. Now we have caravans starting from Central America because Biden promised open borders to them.

    Stopped deportation so now people sneaking across the border (both criminal and possibly Covid carriers) can be released into the USA.

    Promised $4 billion to Central America that they will get before USA citizens get their next stimulus check.

    Promised citizenship to 11,000,000 illegals including gang members and criminals so that they don't have to vote democratic illegally next election.

    Killed the Keystone Pipeline costing thousands of union jobs and screwing Canada.

    Killed our domestic oil industry so that we can be more reliant on foreign oil so we can get in a war over oil.

    Still trying to tie immigration and state money to the stimulus. He doesn't want to help the citizens and small business. He wants to bail out democratic states that are broke because of their failed policies and get illegals sworn in. Covid Stimulus should not be tied to immigration and illegals but only for citizens.

    Pushing the green energy thinking that but a miracle we can convert all our cars and buildings to electric by 2030 when we are only getting 5% from those sources now.

    The thing about socialism is that all the government needs to do is tell you it works and everything will be better and you believe it. Well the smart 50% of the USA don't believe it. After 4 years the other 50% will just say that it didn't work but it wasn't Sleepy Joe fault it was Trump's fault.

    Mark my words: Every failed policy by sleepy Joe will be Trump's fault! And if you don't believe me ask the honest media CNN.

    Meanwhile, we're debating over transgender bathrooms, confederate statues, and catering to every emotional whim. DJT was terrible but it would be nice if we let America be America and worked on logistics and policy, pass some very basic human rights laws, while letting the various states and regions sort out their own cultural issues.

    Proud Boys Leader Was 'Prolific' FBI Snitch: Court Docs

    While US officials claim that 'far-right extremism' is one of the largest threats facing America, the leader of the group most commonly singled out as an example. The Proud Boys. Was a 'prolific' informant for federal and local law enforcement, according to Reuters, citing a 2014 federal court proceeding.

    Enrique Tarrio repeatedly worked undercover for investigators following a 2012 arrest, court documents reveal.

    Curiously, Tarrio was ordered to stay away from Washington the. See. One day before the January 6 Capitol riot after he was arrested on vandalism and weapons charges. Upon a request by government prosecutors that he be prohibited from attending. At least five Proud Boys members were charged as part of the riot.

    In a Tuesday interview with Reuters, Tarrio denied working undercover or cooperating in cases.

    "I don't know any of this," he said, adding "I don't recall any of this."

    Law-enforcement officials and the court transcript contradict Tarrio's denial. In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio's case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that "he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes. ".

    Tarrio, 36, is a high-profile figure who organizes and leads the right-wing Proud Boys in their confrontations with those they believe to be Antifa, short for "anti-fascism," an amorphous and often violent leftist movement. The Proud Boys were involved in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol January 6.

    The records uncovered by Reuters are startling because they show that a leader of a far-right group now under intense scrutiny by law enforcement was previously an active collaborator with criminal investigators. -Reuters.

    . Tarrio's involvement with law enforcement will no doubt fuel speculation over just how 'organic' the threat of 'far-right extremism' is, particularly when the vast majority of violence observed over 2020 was committed by far-left groups rioting in the name of racial justice."

    Zerohedge dot com.

    Commenter: "IOW, the leader of the Proud Boys was an agent provocateur reporting to FBI handlers. " Where was Lisa Page and Agent Strozk when the "capitol insurrection" went down? LOL.

    "Duh, at least 50% of any group like this are federal agents or informants. They will create or even takeover the groups. Decentralization. " How many of the "rioters" in the Capitol were paid to be there?

    "This story is incredibly easy for me to believe, especially a day after the story of the child turning in his father for the horrific atrocity of entering into what was an open public building before the ruling class set the 1,000 meter rule of no approach. What was the father's other crime again? Complaining (and protesting) about election fraud?

    "I had a trial a few years ago in which most of the MS-13 leaders worked for FBI while in leadership position."

    How to save face? They couldn't concede that posting pictures of themselves engaged in a murderous assault on the USA Capitol was supremely stupid. No, it was that Trump was too cowardly to join them. But thinking that he would was also supremely stupid.

    After winding the mob up with insane ranting about a "stolen election," Trump urged it to March to the Capitol to stop the counting of votes. "You'll never take back our country with weakness," he said. "And I'll be there with you."

    Of course, he wasn't there with them. It was some strange Neverland these Lost Boys came from. How else explain their expecting Trump to expose himself to the swarm, much less risk injury in a violent encounter?

    While the boys were vandalizing, looting and threatening to hang elected officials, according to The Washington Post, Trump serenely watched the rampage on White House TVs. At a certain point, though, it dawned on the president that the unfolding horror was not in his interests. He conferred with advisers and lawyers to ensure he wouldn't take the rap for it. Thus, at 2:38 pm Eastern time, after a Capitol Police officer had already been killed, he tweeted, "Stay peaceful!" he then issued a video in which he told the herd to go home.

    A day later, he condemned the blockheads for their "heinous attack" and said he was "outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem. " And to think that some of the Proud Boys actually expected a presidential pardon for their crimes.

    The main objective here is not to point out the treachery of Trump. It's not even to question the right wing's willingness to believe that Trump hadn't lost. With all those conspiracy theories infesting their media and weeks of getting pounded by a charismatic speaker's liesone could envision their swallowing the nonsense that dark forces had denied victory to he whom they called "Emperor Trump."

    The Proud Boys' grasp on reality was never all it could be, but still. The group had it together enough to closely follow Trump's 86 unsuccessful legal challenges to the election results. It should have been easier to note Trump's long history of covering his rear end and employing an army of lawyers to countersue those he had betrayed. But somehow, the Lost Boys thought they'd be an exception.

    And so, they portrayed the double-cross as an unexpected abuse of what they imagined as their honor. They hit backor so they thought. "The Proud Boys Now Mock Trump" is how a New York Times headline characterized their criticism.

    With all due respect to the headline writer, the people being mocked are the right-wing rioters facing criminal charges after being turned in by their children, ex-wives and (former) employers. Trump is back at Mar-a-Lago, smelling the sweet chlorine from his swimming pool and playing golf.

    The insurrectionists now have their own lawyers. Despite the "heinous" nature of their acts, some of the legal advisers have taken the tack of portraying their clients as naive nitwits.

    The lawyer representing the "QAnon Shaman" says the would-be actor regrets what he did but was duped by Trump. And he refers to his client in clownish termsas "the guy with the horns and the fur, the meditation and organic food."

    The Proud Boys are now saying in online posts that the group should drop politics and abandon both parties. They may be on to something, finally.

    Sleepy Joe Biden is POTUS. Fat Nixon is Commander in Thief of a shadow government, pulling the puppet strings in the two venerable houses.

    The 2016 election of the outsider Trump has shown the electorate has woken up to this reality. Even the dimmest bulbs who somehow imagined Joe Biden (of all people) could be their salvation should by the next election cycle be ready to break from the two-party duopoly. And Trump supporters will be likely to more closely scrutinize prospective candidates so as not be hoodwinked by another grifter.

    Not exonerated. Rejected by a majority of voters

    The Special Counsel's report made it clear that DJT was not exonerated. Cut loose by a Senate controlled by Republicans, yes, so as not to lose a primary if they crossed him. It's a fake battle. It is a one party system controlled by entrenched wealth with a constitution guaranteed to protect it. Bad and disingenuous people on both sides. The corporations that supported Republicans have been shamed a bit, but will get over it soon enough. USA is consuming itself from within.

    The report concludes that President Trump personally helped write a false statement for his son to give the public about a meeting with Russian operatives at the campaign headquarters. He falsely claimed the meeting was to discuss adoption policy, rather than the real purpose, to get information benefiting his campaign and damaging his opponent. Vol 2 pg 101-103.

    In short, Mueller indicated that the report was an impeachment referral, leaving the matter to the House of Representatives.

    "Congress May apply obstruction laws to the President's corrupt excercise of the powers of office accords with the constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law " Vol 2, pg 8.
    Once again the house democrats bring false charges and want to impeach and once again Trump will be found not guilty and exonerated. Democrats are so afraid of Trump that they will stop all their duties and delay the stimulus to try to impeach even though they know that the senators will not vote for it. They are hurting everyone that voted for them, all the people suffering from this recession to put on a show. Trump will be exonerated again.

    Democrats must be so proud.

    Majority of Europeans say China will overtake 'broken' US within decade

    A majority of Europeans believe America's political system is broken, that China will be the world's leading power within a decade, and that Joe Biden will be unable to halt his country's decline on the world stage, according to a report.

    While many welcomed Biden's victory in November's US election, more Europeans than not feel that after four years of Donald Trump the US cannot be trusted, according to the study by the European Council on Foreign Relations.

    "Europeans like Biden, but they don't think America will come back as a global leader," said the thinktank's director, Mark Leonard. "When George W Bush was president, they were divided about how America should use its power. With Biden entering the White House, they are divided about whether America has power at all."

    The survey of 15,000 people in 11 European countries, conducted at the end of last year, found that the shift in European sentiment towards the US in the wake of the Trump presidency had led to a corresponding unwillingness to support Washington in potential international disputes.

    At least half of respondents in all 11 countries surveyed felt, for example, that their government should remain neutral in any conflict between the US and China, while no more than 40% in any country said they would back Washington against Russia.

    "It's clear that the tumultuous Trump presidency has left an indelible imprint on Europe's attitude towards the US," said Ivan Krastev, chair of the Centre for Liberal Strategies, an NGO in Sofia, and an ECFR board member. "The majority of Europeans are now sceptical about the capacity of the US to shape the world. It makes many, rightly or wrongly, want to opt for a more independent role for the EU in the world."

    In their report, Leonard and Krastev note that while more than 60% of those polled believed the US was "broken", most evaluated the EU and their own countries' systems much more positively an opportunity, they argue, to harness the collective power of the bloc for the benefit and protection of its citizens.

    The survey found that 51% of those polled did not agree with the statement that under Biden the US was likely to resolve its internal divisions and seek to address international issues such as climate change, peace in the Middle East, relations with China or European security.

    Amid a widespread sense of growing Chinese superiority, 79% of those polled in Spain, 72% in Portugal, 72% in Italy and 63% in France said they thought China would overtake the US as the world's leading superpower within the next decade.

    Just over 32% of all respondents and a startling 53% of respondents in Germany felt that after voting for Trump, Americans could not be trusted. Only in Hungary and Poland did significantly more people disagree with that view than agree.

    Just 10% of those polled saw the US as a "reliable" security partner that would always protect Europe, while at least 60% in every country polled said they doubted their country could depend on US support in the event of a crisis.

    The authors say the geopolitical consequences of this shift are significant: two-thirds of those surveyed said it was now important that Europe look after its own defence, including 72% in Portugal, 71% in Sweden, 70% in France and 69% in Poland.

    At least half of respondents in every country surveyed said they would prefer their government to be neutral in a conflict between the US and China. Across the 11 states surveyed, only 23% of respondents thought their country should take Washington's side against Russia, with 59% preferring to remain neutral.

    Between 38% and 48% of respondents in seven countries thought the EU should adopt a tougher international stance on issues such as trade, taxation and regulation, while most countries considered Germany was now a more important country to "have a good relationship" with than the US.

    The poll also revealed that in nine of the 11 countries Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Sweden where the same question was asked in previous years, the average share of people saying the EU's political system worked very or fairly well had risen from 46% to 48%.

    It found that people who believed their own national political system was working, which was more often the case in northern than in southern Europe, were more likely to say the EU was a success.

    The report identified four "tribes" that went a long way to grouping respondents' positions, depending on whether they felt the EU, US or China were rising or declining. The biggest tribe, "In Europe we trust", comprised 35% of respondents, while only 9% belonged to "In America we trust".

    I quoted (and answered) the question that you asked, that was not it.

    I know your English skills are poor (based on your prior posts).

    But are you also suffering from blindness?

    (BTW: That's how you structure and punctuate a question in English).

    I am sure that if you asked Vice-President Kamala Harris today if her running mate, President Joe Biden, was a racist. She would say he is not a racist.

    We know Joe much better today than a year ago, at least those who care to learn.
    What a load of nonsense. Your childish and ignorant attacks against me are just a reflection of what a stupid little troll you truly are. You are laughable.

    I've asked the same question twice and you've yet to give me a real answer. You're obviously afraid of answering my question.

    Did you mean to say that Biden was a racist but not anymore? He stopped being a racist after he let Camela Harris in on his ticket? LOL!

    You didn't even the mention the lizard woman and the horse face with the crazy eyes. Is the lizard woman a racist or is the horse face a crazy SJW plying the race card?

    If Biden isn't a racist, Camela Harris must be a true wacko running around and falsely accusing people of being racists.
