Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

A little late as it was filed on 2/15, but the Texas House proposes a Concurrent Resolution to urge Congress to impeach Trump.

It won't be about about the quality and credentials of the judge, it will be purely partisan because it's DJT's nomination. Disgraceful.
The same could be said of the Senate Republicans and Merrick Garland.

Would we like that? Would she be praised for her bold leadership or would the media still be trying to figure out what hit them?

Just something for thought if we are going to be intellectually honest and internally consistent.
If we are going to be intellectually honest, the mainstream media wouldn't be anywhere near as critical and dishonest regardless what Hillary did. She was the press' golden girl that could do no wrong. Obama benefited from a much friendlier press than Trump has.

The biased press is doing everything they can to play gotcha.
We can't do anything about the press aside from dropping their revenue. My point was, if a Democrat had won and started issuing executive orders on firearms or their components, immigration, the (U)ACA and the environment, would we be going on and on about Executive Branch overreach or would we be saying "good for them?"

Many people are happy now because their guy is in the WH and things are starting to go their way. Arguably, the actions taken by President Trump have been to scale back 8 years of federal and Executive Branch overreach. My point is, is this the example we want to be setting? "They did it, so we should too!"

I'd honestly rather see the laws created by following the Constitutionally defined process to clarify these issues than to have enforcement of the laws subject to the will of the President.
