President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly shattered political tradition, may find himself in another unprecedented circumstance in 2020: He could become the first president ever to be impeached by the House and then seek another term in the next election.

a searing impeachment struggle could create more public demand for a candidate who pledges to bring the country together, some operatives in both parties believe.

Yeah, that would be the socialists and sexual misfits on the Left and NeverTrumpers on the Right, and they're both wrong.

Little coup attempts have been attempted since before Trump even took office, and continued unabated afterwards (Hillary funds creation of a fake "dossier" to smear Trump, based on which Obama and secret courts authorize the natl sec apparatus to spy on the Trump campaign, Strzok and Page's hate-affair over Trump, debated use of the 25th Amd to remove Trump, admin officials telling media they're deliberately frustrating Trump's agenda, intell officials leaking Trump's calls, and so much more).

Trump has to win a second term and demonstrably so, or else this subversion and undermining is going to mark every Republican presidency from now on.

The point is that China's leadership is willing to make the Chinese people endure whatever pain is necessary to avoid tearing down its protective barriers (taxes on imports, bans on foreign firms in designated hi-tech industries) or ending its mercantilist practices (JVs, SOEs). Chinese are patriotic and hear only what state-run media tells them, so they'll countenance some pain for an eventual win.

Trump can't change the Chinese side. But as long as he holds firm, the more those on the Left and the media in the US will have to explain why giving trade concessions to or making deals with China - an authoritarian govt w/ no concept of Western-style human rights that often brutalizes ethnic minorities - is such a good idea.

Best case, China realizes its predicament and changes. Chance that'll happen: 0.01% (basically, as close to zero as possible without being zero).

Ron Vara's a whistleblower, and Peter Navarro is simply protecting his identity.

Now do people see why we shouldn't trust anonymous sources, unidentified officials, or whisteblowers?

The Discovery docuseries traces the roots of hate, asking how and why that emotion can drive regular people to monstrous behavior.

genuinely oppressed groups should see their grievances redressed through non-violent means, while relatively empowered groups with siege mentalities, like white supremacists, deserve nothing more than a rude awakening.

I call Intersectional Bullsh!t! You claim "white supremacists" are "relatively empowered groups with siege mentalities." Where's you evidence for this bald assertion? If those whites turn out to be low-skilled, low-educated people living in depressed rural regions, are you claiming they're "relatively empowered" simply because they're white? Because that sounds incredibly racist...

the show barely mentions other facets of the relationship between hate and gender, even as men dominate its case studies of hate-fueled violence.

Oh, you mean like how women dominate case studies of violence against children throughout the Anglosphere?

See, I can play this gender-bashing game, too.

The home for the best of American conservative opinion. Curated commentary and analysis on news, politics, public policy, and culture.

Partisans like Last are displaying a willful blindness to history. During the deescalation of the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK agreed to quietly remove US missiles from Turkey several months after the Crisis. That was, per Last's logic, a direct quid pro quo w/ a foreign govt (not just any for govt, an overt adversary). Would he honestly contend that JFK should have been impeached? Not doing so despite the obvious nature of the situation then shows how today's impeachment push is a farce.

This is the height of full-on insanity against Trump (FIAT). How's this for moving goalposts:

1) Trump is illegitimate b/c he won the electoral vote not the popular vote

2) On second thought, Trump is illegitimate b/c he conspired w/ Russia. And we have a rock-solid dossier proving it

3) Trump didn't just collaborate, he's a Russian stooge

4) Trump should be investigated for collusion

5) After 2 yrs and millions of $, the investigation didn't find anything. But that's because Trump obfuscated, not because there was nothing to find

6) Trump mentioning that he'd like anyone, including foreign govts, to look into corruption and meddling in the 2016 election, which led to his investigation in the first place, is a crime because...Trump did it, and we say it's a crime

After taking a chance on Donald Trump in 2016, a swing county in western Pennsylvania is up for grabs again.

Outright conversions like Mr. Graham’s, while still rare, were reflected in an uptick of support for impeachment by independent voters in recent national polls.

So the writer admits the chosen data point is an outlier, but he still massages a trend out of it. Fascinating.

Wait, this isn't satire?

A far left academic is arguing that Repubs just bend over and take it, and he thinks conservatives are taking him seriously?!?!?

Put it all together and we're left with a picture of a political movement in complete ideological disarray, unsure of what it wants to do, and in constant danger of internal conflict. That's something that Democrats can and should be attempting at every opportunity to encourage and exploit.

No, that's just your fevered wet dream. Conservatives and libertarians both realize that the Left has gone batsh!t insane, now advocating complete govt takeover of healthcare (Warren & Sanders) or the entire economy (AOC). We conservatarians know that if the Dems complete their domination of politics, like they have of culture and social media, then we call all hang together...or hang separately.
