Impeachment Polls Indicate a Deep Divide

Written by David Preston on September 30, 2019

Americans are speaking up after the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.  A CBS/YouGov poll found that 55% of Americans polled support the impeachment Inquiry.  On 09/18/2109, news of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and a whistleblower complaint alleging possible abuses of power by President Trump broke in the news media.  It is alleged that President Trump engaged in a Quid Pro Quo in asking the Ukrainian President to dig up dirt on his potential political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.  There is a video of Vice President Biden bragging about withholding military aid to Ukraine until the then President of Ukraine fired the country’s chief prosecutor.  It is…

Doug Jones Floor Speech on Donald Trump

U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-Ala.) took to the Senate floor this evening to express his concern about the recent allegations that have come to light involving the President of the United States and the President of Ukraine. He also called on his colleagues to do their constitutional duty and to avoid the temptation to see these current events through a political lens. “I hope that my colleagues, as we go forward… will remember their oath,” Senator Jones said. “We didn’t take oaths to support the President of the United States. We didn’t take an oath to support the Republican Party. We didn’t take an oath to support the Democratic Party. We took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States.” He continued, “Our…

Parents routinely risk their own safety and security to protect their children. What about the courage of an abused woman who chooses to leave a terrible situation and start over with nothing? How about that person who changes careers in mid-life to try and build something better? There are countless stories of individual acts of courage all around us. Believe it or not, there are even stories of political courage. They are rare, but real nonetheless. In 1950, Republican Senator Margaret Chase Smith gave an impassioned speech known as “Declaration of Conscience”, loudly criticizing Joseph McCarthy’s shameful…
