Democrats Scared Impeaching Trump Could Make Iowa Contest Moot

Published

It’s become something of a joke to say that Democrats do nothing but pass the buck and avoid taking personal responsibility for their own party’s failures, but it seems that stereotype is firmly grounded in truth.

Supporters of 2020 Democratic Party candidates like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with those backing Amy Klobucahar have determined already who they are going to blame should their candidates fail in Iowa.

Trump’s impeachment trial.

It remains unclear just how much time the trio, plus Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado, will be forced off the trail due to impeachment. The trial opened Thursday with ceremonial swearings-in of Chief Justice John Roberts in a presiding role and senators as jurors. Its substantive portion opens on Tuesday.

Until then, Warren, 70, and her fellow Democratic lawmakers running for president squeezed in visits to Iowa and other early voting states. But if Warren falls short in Iowa, being away for the impeachment trial is an obvious culprit, said supporter Jessica Chapman, 24. However, being forced back to Washington could also be a potential political asset.

“A strategy could definitely be to tell supporters they weren’t in the state,” Chapman told the Washington Examiner. “No one really has talked about how they’re not here. As long as her campaign makes clear she’s filling her constitutional duty, that sends a more important message than if she was just campaigning all day.”

In other words, it’s all Trump’s fault.

It seems the left just can’t get enough of blaming the current president for things, even if the whole scheme was actually their idea from the beginning.

Since these individuals have to be in Washington for the impeachment proceedings, they won’t be able to go around kissing babies and shaking hands with voters, promising them the world, which they know they can’t deliver, in order to get more folks to the polls to support them.

It couldn’t possibly be because Americans dislike their aggressive socialist policies or anything.

Outrageous: Catholic Church is Funding Construction of Mosques in Europe

The Pope is standing idly by as his church pays to build Muslim mosques in France and Nigeria.

The Pope is once again proving himself to be a traitor to the West. This time he is standing idly by as his church pays to build Muslim mosques in France and Nigeria. According to Gloria.tv: “Tours Diocese [in France] donated money for the construction of a local mosque… Tours Bishop Vincent Jordy justified his donation on April 15 with the fact that for John Paul II’s 1996 visit to the city, the local Muslims made a symbolic donation which the diocese wanted to reciprocate. Riposte-Catholique.fr adds that in 2015, Auch Diocese – where John Paul II never visited – donated €5000 for a mosque.” This should outrage every Catholic as church funds are being spent to build monuments to their own destruction. The Catholic Church is now donating money to build a building where people will be taught to hate Christians, to kill Christians, and to destroy the Christian civilization. As Robert Spencer notes, these mosques will be used to teach hate: Of course, that is true that not all Muslims are evil. It is odd, however, for a Christian entity to spend money on building a structure in which congregants will be taught that Jesus is not the Son of God and belief in the Trinity is “excess” (Qur’an 4:171, 19:35), and that Jesus was not crucified (Qur’an 4:157), and that those who believe in the divinity of Christ (that would include Bishop Mamza) are unbelievers (Qur’an 5:17), and that those who (like Bishop Mamza) believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed (Qur’an 9:30), and that Christians who do not accept Muhammad and the Qur’an must be fought against and subjugated under Islamic hegemony (Qur’an 9:29). Also, a hadith has Muhammad predicting that Jesus will return at the end of the world and break the cross, as…

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.
