Congressional Republicans Grow A Testicle

Not a pair of testicles – just one. But sometimes one is enough. Not if they can just grow a spine . . .

Impeachment deposition delayed after Republicans storm proceedings

Dozens of House Republicans on Wednesday stormed the secure facility inside the Capitol where impeachment investigators have been deposing witnesses, forcing a delay to the proceedings on the heels of damning new revelations that could further imperil President Donald Trump.

The two sides were at an impasse on Wednesday afternoon after trying to settle the standoff, with Republicans who do not sit on the committees leading the inquiry refusing to leave the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the Capitol, and Democrats insisting those lawmakers had no right to be there.

[…]

The GOP stunt, led by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), comes as Trump has demanded that Republicans “get tough and fight” for him in the impeachment probe. But Republicans have struggled to defend Trump on the substance of the allegations against him, and have instead focused on hammering Democrats over what they see as an illegitimate impeachment process.

They “stormed” and they “stunted.” Democrats would have boldly marched and protested. It would have looked and sounded the same, but it’s different when they do it.

If Republicans have “struggled to defend Trump on the substance of the allegations against him” that’s because they are fighting fog with a knife. You can slash and stab at smoke until your arms fall off but the fog won’t even notice.

How do you fight against allegations when you are not allowed to know what they are or what evidence exists to support them? Imagine the reaction by the media if the Boner-led Republicans in Congress had held secret meetings about impeaching Obama.

Now the question is whether or not the House Republicans can grow a spine and get that other testicle to drop. If not, this was just another episode of GOP Kabuki Theater.

    Daily Caller:

    “I think they’re lousy politicians,” Trump said Monday about Democrats during a Cabinet meeting. “But two things they have: They’re vicious and they stick together. They don’t have [Utah GOP Sen.] Mitt Romney in their midst. They don’t have people like that. They stick together. You never see them break off.”

    Romney has openly criticized some of the president’s decisions, particularly noting that the July 25 phone call was “shocking” and a “mistake” during an exclusive interview on “Axios on HBO” Sunday.

    “We certainly can’t have presidents asking foreign countries to provide something of political value. That is, after all, against the law,” Romney said.

    Really, Mitt? What law is that? Wouldn’t any successful negotiation with a foreign country provide political value to an incumbent?

    I’m glad at least a small cadre has decided to take a stand, however…….don’t demand open hearings, demand a floor vote for an impeachment inquiry. Why give this sham any credibility? It’s not official, demand it be shut down until the house votes and makes it official. What good would public Stasi hearings do? Schiff would love all the camera time to preen.

    Also, Schiff left with the Pentagon witness so odds are he has simply carried on somewhere else. Wherever he is with here the republicans don’t know and nobody is sitting in listening to my knowledge.

    Other than those two issues, I’m glad to see the republicans taking a stand. Now if the senate, where republicans have the majority would take a stand. No, I don’t mean Miss Lindsey’s resolution 🙄 One senator can block that, me thinks there will be 47 ooops 48 forgot Mitt willing to block it.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If the GOP held 99 seats in the Senate the Democrat would still be able to block anything he didn’t like.

      There are always a few GOP Senators who can be counted on to vote with the Democrats when it really matters. Democrats never defy their party.

    I turned off my ad blocker so I could read an article at Daily Caller and immediately got hit with some ransomware virus. My Chrome browser was locked and it was telling me to call Microsoft at xxx-xxx-xxxx only that isn’t a Microsoft number.

    • lateblum says:

      Yup. It took over my desktop and scared me so that I called my dd#1 who works at Microsoft. It messed up my printer software and I was without printing capabilities for several days until I could download driver software from the manufacturer and reinstall my printer. What a mess! I was using Edge.

      • taw46 says:

        I have had it about 3 times using Edge. As soon as it shows up, I unplug my desktop. Don’t give it time to do anything!

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          That’s what I did.

        • lateblum says:

          Good suggestion. I had only just begun using Edge when it happened.
          What do you use now?

          • taw46 says:

            Years ago I had malware take over my PC, had to get it professionally cleaned. I do have virus/malware protection, but this is getting through. What I learned before is to never click on ANYTHING on the windows that pop up, just immediately unplug. I just started using my desktop more instead of always on my iPhone or iPad. I probably will download another browser, just haven’t decided which one.

          • lateblum says:

            I actually WAS on my desktop when it happened. I still haven’t downloaded anything new yet. But I started looking at Opera. Someone here had mentioned Opera a bit ago.

      Dems: If you want to try for impeachment, then you need go for it. Don’t dither around, saying you’re really, really, going to impeach any time now. Honest. Have the courage of your convictions and start the process.

      As it is, everyone understands that this is theater and posturing, and no one is impressed.

    Okay, Craw-ladies – does this look familiar to any of you? They are the right age to have been one of my babysitters. In 1968 I started in Mrs. Hayes’ 2nd-grade class and then moved up to Mrs. Winnie’s 3rd-grade class.

    • taw46 says:

      Yes, I graduated from college in 1968. The hair, the clothes, just what I remember!

      It’s high school for me, and I remember it well.

        Bwahahahaha
        I see Ali MacGraw and I am rushed back to 1984. She was Lady Ashley Mitchall who died in the Moldavian massacre on Dynasty. What the fuck was wrong with my parents? They were shocked when I said I was gay. I lived for Dynasty and spent a fortune buying the vhs of The Thorn Birds. Ali MacGraw and Rachel Ward reside in my one remaining brain cell. Maggie Cleary in her ashes of rose dress reminds of Melania Trump when she wears simple clothes. The grace is beyond compare. I bet the resistance at fashion schools grind their teeth over Melania. She can wear anything and rock it, but in my opinion she is a super star in basics. Her Egypt attire was smoking hot. Khakis and a white shirt = perfection. To me she rivals Liz Taylor in An American Tragedy aka A Place in the Sun and Ward in the epic Thorn Birds. Sophia Loren in Two Women. I will even give Babs in Funny Girl. Those women made their beauty art in those roles. I think only Michelle Pfeiffer has come close to capturing the goddess as actress. I read My Posse Don’t Do Homework which Pfeiffer turned into Dangerous Minds. It is not a good movie. It was like a sequel to To Sir With Love. God was she hot though in the video

    The Rs suddenly finding their balls today makes me believe the FISA IG report and/or findings in the Durham investigation have started to leak on Capitol Hill.
    They must know what’s coming and want to make sure they are seen as standing with Trump and against the corrupt doings of the DNC, NeverTrumps and Obama administration when it does.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      And/or they saw the latest polling that has Trump up and Dems down. They can’t serve their masters if they don’t get reelected.

      Politicians who take unpopular stands on issues don’t usually last long. Since this whistleblower bullshit broke they were holding back, waiting to see what the evidence was and how the voters reacted. Fucking idiots. Backing Trump 100% is a no-brainer right now.

      Support Trump and the base will support you. If you don’t support Trump or join the Dems in opposing him, the base will not support you. If you are a GOP rep. and the base won’t vote for you, you’ll lose/. The Democrats will not vote for you in gratitude because you helped take down Trump.

      A lot of the GOP losers in 2018 lost because the base would not turn out for them because they would not support Trump. Like it or not, the GOP is Trump’s party now. The GOPe is gnashing their teeth in frustration because they can’t beat Trump unless they break off a good chunk of the base first, and the base is going nowhere.

      It’s not that the base is giving Trump the benefit of the doubt, it’s that they don’t believe one fucking word of the allegations against him.

      • Somebody says:

        There has been a concerted effort to call and/or write representatives and senators telling them to stand up. When Nancy launched this the act blue crowd was calling, etc. So they were all cowering, now angry constituents are outnumbering the act blue calls so they “take this stand”.

    Assange in Court
    by Craig Murray

    I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday’s events in Westminster Magistrates Court. Every decision was railroaded through over the scarcely heard arguments and objections of Assange’s legal team, by a magistrate who barely pretended to be listening.
