Pelosi, Schiff full steam towards articles of impeachment
It is clear Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff do not have confidence in their party or any of its candidates to win in November 2020 as evident by their continued efforts to impeach President Trump out of pure hatred. Something Democrats charged Republicans with during the 1998 President Clinton impeachment hearings.
Pelosi announced Thursday that House Democrats would indeed proceed with articles of impeachment a day after the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony from four respected legal scholars.
“I suggested that Democrats drop the arbitrary schedule of a vote by the end of December and complete their case and this record before voting on any articles of impeachment,” said Constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley. He added “in my view, they have not proven abuse of power in this incomplete record.”
This stunt held in a kangaroo court by House Democrats is no surprise, they have been actively working to overturn the results of the 2016 election while putting off the real work they were sent to Washington D.C. to do.
The American voter is smart and I suspect they aren’t too thrilled with the House’s effort to impeach a dually elected President on no merit.
Hold on to your wallets
State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) announced this week the State Legislator will look into raising taxes to offset the $6.1 billion state budget deficit.
“This is gonna be a tough budget year, unless money’s gonna fall from the sky,” Heastie said to reporters.
Money will not fall from the sky, instead, it’s going to fall right out of your pockets as Democrats look once again to New York residents to fix their spending problem.
The Speaker conveniently had nothing to say about a cut in spending, but was very quick to talk about the need to raise your taxes.
In 2009 when Democrats controlled both the State Assembly and Senate they increased spending by 1.1% or $1.3 billion. With one party control again in New York State, there’s no telling how much they will spend next.
Three Senators and Two Assembly Members Have Perfect Score
As per tradition, the party released their ratings for the past legislative season this week in an effort to keep New York voters informed and knowledgeable on how their state representative voted on the 25 key bills passed in the 2019 session.
“We believe that it is necessary to keep the public informed of key votes and let the taxpayers be aware of how elected officials spend our hard-earned money,” Chairman Kassar said. “Every bill is considered, and then we narrow the number to give voters a fair assessment of what transpires in Albany,” he added.
Those who received a perfect rating from the Conservative Party in the Senate were Daphne Jordan (43rd SD), Senator Thomas F. O’Mara (58th SD), Senator Robert G. Ortt (62nd SD). In the Assembly David J. DiPietro (147th AD) and Kieran Michael Lalor (105th AD) joined their Senate colleagues with a perfect score of 100%.
The overall Senate ratings dropped 15% from the 2018 session average of 55% to a new low of 40%. The Senate, now under full democratic control, explains the dramatic drop.
