Like I've said to you before: We aren't in need of any new legislation; quite the opposite.

Repeal and deregulate. Repeat.  Wink

Let healthcare implode. Focus on tax cuts. That's the only piece of legislation that needs to be attempted.

So we gauge a presidents success by how many new laws he can pass? How about gauging a president on how well he can enforce the current laws before making more unnecessary bullshit laws?

30 Chicago Alderman Sign Letter to Impeach Trump – While City Records 236th Homicide and Suffers Near Junk Bond Rating

Jim Hoft Jun 1st, 2017 1:38 pm 30 Comments

You just can’t make this stuff up. On Wednesday, 30 Chicago alderman signed a resolution to have Trump impeached.

This is both amusing and concerning.

These aldermen were elected in order to work on issues that are impacting the city.

They need to worry about about what is going on in our back yard instead of the Fake News media conspiracy theories..

Here are the most recent Chicago stats:

1. 236 homicides year to date 2. City employees retirement funds short $20 billion 3. Credit rating near junk bond status 4. Public School pensions skyrocketing – concern with keeping schools open 5. Worst financial shape than any other major city 6. Sanctuary City 7. Person is shot ever 2 hours and 38 minutes in Chicago

And they want to impeach Trump?

OK, fair enough.

But he campaigned on doing all kinds of things right after he got into office.
Here's what he's failed to delivery despite promising:

1. Repeal/replace Obama-care   Nope, not yet. Claimed we'd have "something great" for health care.
2. Tax cuts - Nope, not yet
3. Obliterate ISIS - Nope, not yet
4. Have the treasury sec label China a "currency manipulator" and apply tariffs .  Nope and may have reversed himself
5. Get 25% profit deal for Keystone pipeline.  Nope, and required Canada to resubmit permits.
6. Executive order for cop killers to get death penalty . Signed some exec order on this but the death penalty was not in it
7. Claimed he'd never settle the Trump U law suit . Nope, paid a 25 mil settlement
8. Promised to cut ties from his company. Nope , he still retains ownership and gets financial reports .
9. Said several times he would fully fund and save Medicaid . Nope, latest house bill cuts it.
10 Claimed as POTUS he'd apologize when wrong. LOL Roll Eyes

Ok, no question that Trump talks a good game , but had no idea HOW he would do it.
THAT was my main problem with Trump , not his stated views or policies.
He had no experience with getting things done within government.

In fairness to the President, he may still make some things happen.
To do so, he needs to learn from his previous mistakes and take a new direction.

I honestly think he CAN do that.
The bigger question is, WILL he do it?
Time will tell...tick tock

This is absolutely absurd.  He has been president for five months.  He hasn't failed at anything yet.  You evaluate success and failure at the end of his term.

There are 1000's of videos and articles of what he PROMISED for the first 100 days during the campaign.
I guess he finally understand running the US Government is tougher than her thought 'eh.
In my opinion, he was clueless about it actually takes to get things done as POTUS.

In fairness, you're  correct and he COULD get plenty of things done .
The bigger question is, will he change enough to actually do it?

pretty obvious what you spend time thinking about

definitely keep projecting your feelings on other people

that's the best way to repress what you obviously desire

House Dem drafting articles of impeachment for Trump
BY MIKE LILLIS - 06/06/17

A House Democrat will soon launch an official attempt to impeach President Trump.

Rep. Al Green, a Texas Democrat and member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), is readying the articles of impeachment that mark the first official step in any congressional bid to remove a sitting president.

The articles have little chance of seeing the light of day in a House chamber controlled by Republicans, who have rallied behind Trump amid multiple investigations into ties between Russia and members of the president’s inner circle. But Green’s gambit highlights the growing apprehension many Democrats have toward the president, and it’s sure to energize a liberal base that’s sounded the impeachment alarm with increasing volume as the Russian investigation saga has evolved.

Green’s criticisms focus on Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the administration’s probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Trump had reportedly pressured Comey earlier in the year to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, who was fired after lying about the nature of his conversations with a Russian ambassador.

Comey’s firing brought accusations, primarily from Democrats, that Trump may have obstructed an ongoing Justice Department investigation — an impeachable offense, in the eyes of Green.

“The facts are simple and indisputable. The President fired the FBI Director because the Director was investigating the President’s campaign connections to Russian interference in the Presidential Election,” Green said Tuesday evening in a statement. “This is obstruction of justice.”

The episode will be front-and-center on Capitol Hill later this week. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was critical of Comey and had a hand in his firing, is set to appear Wednesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey himself is set to appear before the same panel the following day.

It’s unclear when Green will officially introduce the articles he’s currently drafting. It’s also unclear if he’ll have any co-sponsors, though Green has not been alone in his calls for impeaching Trump. California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, another CBC member, has also beaten that drum.

A spokesman said Green will provide more details Wednesday afternoon, when he’s scheduled a press briefing in the Capitol.

Green’s effort comes even as Democratic leaders are treading much more lightly in their approach to the Russia-Trump saga. With Trump’s approval rating underwater — and new details in the Russia probe emerging almost daily — party leaders sense an opportunity to make huge gains at the polls in 2018 and don’t want to overplay their hand. They’ve tamped down any talk of impeachment, calling instead for the creation of an independent, 9/11-style commission to investigate the Russia inquiry.

“What I've said to members [is] the only thing that matters are the facts — the facts and the law,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday on CNN’s “New Day” program, when asked about impeachment. “That's what [an] investigation will reveal to us.”

Green has rejected that argument, contending that Trump’s actions have already risen to a level demanding congressional intervention.

“This will remain obstruction of justice regardless of the findings of any investigation,” he said.

“Obstruction of justice by the President is the problem,” he added. “Impeachment by Congress is the solution.”

What is the 25th Amendment?
Published July 04, 2017

A bill calling for a presidential oversight commission which could be used to evaluate President Donald Trump -- and possibly deem him unfit for office -- has gained the support of multiple Democrats.

In April, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., introduced a bill in April for the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act.  As part of the bill, an 11-member commission would include doctors and determine if the president "is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office."

The bill says that the commission would "carry out section 4 of the 25th Amendment." Fox News breaks down what the constitutional amendment entails.

What is the 25th Amendment?

The amendment is made up of four sections, and lays out how the president would be succeeded in office. 

KUCINICH RIPS DEMS FOR PROPOSAL TO EXAMINE TRUMP'S MENTAL FITNESS

Why do we have the 25th Amendment?

Constitutional rules about presidential succession had been unclear before the amendment was ratified in 1967, the U.S. Senate's website says. The amendment, it says, was debated following President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination and during the time President Lyndon B. Johnson spent without a vice president.  The amendment was ratified in 1967.

What does the first section of the amendment say?
It says that if the president is removed from office, resigns, or dies, the vice president becomes president.

What about the 25th Amendment's second section?

The president will nominate someone "who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress" if there isn't a vice president.

The vice president will serve as acting president, if the president tells the President pro tempore and the Speaker of the House of Representatives that he cannot "discharge the powers and duties of his office." The vice president would continue in the role unless the president says that he can serve.

What about the fourth section?

The vice president would serve as acting president if he "and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide" tell the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House that the president is unable to do his job. The amendment says that Congress would convene if there was a dispute over the president's ability to serve.
