DW The Day – Impeachment in the United States

Germany’s Deutsche Welle (DW) had me back on The Day with Helena Humphrey, Friday, December 6, 2019 to discuss the happenings with impeachment in the United States.

I explained how the process works, the legal basis, the lack of basis for the Republicans positions, the Republicans sustaining support for Trump to their own future detriment, and the failure of Mitch McConnell in the Senate to take a vote on over 400 bills passed in the House.

PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO to explain to your friends and family what is really happening.

The Slowdown Is Over, Time To Spend Freely


As I argued on air many times, this stupid government slowdown was stupid. People furloughed still get paid (see page 10). The taxpayer will now pay for work NOT received. Absolutely asinine why the Republicans thought this was the right approach when disagreeing with PPACA. Plus the whole approach of an end-around legislation is bad for our already malfunctioning government in Washington, D.C.

And then there is the pork stuffed into this bill (see page 13, section 123, page 20 section 176, etc.). How in the world can the people supposedly serving us see this as the time to tack on extra spending?!? I am outraged at the hubris of those in Washington who see fit to spend more at this moment. Debate the merits of the extra spending, don’t hide it away in this bill.

Anyone else getting tired of this style of politics from the people in Washington?
