Pelosi Backs Down, Says She Won’t Try Impeaching Trump Again: Not ‘Worth The Trouble’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) backed down on Thursday and revealed that she won’t actually try and impeach President Donald Trump for a second time to block him from nominating someone to the Supreme Court.

“I Don’t Think He’s Worth The Trouble”

“I don’t think he’s worth the trouble at this point, we have 40 days until the election,” Pelosi told reporters when asked if she will be trying to impeach the president again“It’s no use orchestrating one thing or another when what really matters in terms of the peaceful transfer of power is that people vote.”

This comes days after Pelosi hinted in an interview that impeachment was not off the table, saying, “we have arrows in our quiver.”

“We have our options,” she told television host George Stephanopoulos. “This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made. Right now, our main goal — and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be to protect the integrity of the election — that we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”

Kevin McCarthy Fires Back

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) fired back by warning that he will introduce a motion to oust Pelosi if she dares to launch a second impeachment inquiry.

“I will make you this one promise, listening to the speaker on television this weekend, if she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer have the question of her being Speaker. She may think she has a quiver — we do too,” McCarthy told reporters.

As for Trump, he plans to move forward with announcing his nominee on Saturday to fill the Supreme Court seat that was left vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“I think it will be on Friday or Saturday and we want to pay respect, it looks like we will have services on Thursday or Friday, as I understand it, and I think we should, with all due respect for Justice Ginsburg, wait for services to be over,” Trump said.

College Professor Uses Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Death To Launch Shameful Attack On Trump Supporters

A professor at the University of Alabama-Birmingham just shamelessly used the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to launch a deranged attack on the millions of supporters of President Donald Trump.

Professor Pays Tribute To RBG

Professor Sarah Parcak initially reacted to Ginsburg’s death in a classy way, paying tribute to the late 87 year-old justice.

“She hung on as long as she could. Icon. Genius. Loving wife, mother, grandmother.” Parcak tweeted. “Powerful arbiter of truth and justice, even when she was in the minority. In her honor, dig deep, fight like hell, VOTE. #rbg”

Had she left it at that, there would have been nothing to see here. However, Parcak just could not resist taking the death of an 87 year-old woman and using it to fuel her anti-Trump hatred as she attacked his supporters.

Professor Uses RBG’s Death To Attack Trump Supporters

Somehow, Parcak managed to turn a tribute to Ginsburg’s love of physical fitness into a below-the-belt assault on those who support the president.

“RBG planked for a minute for multiple sets at AGE 86 and did tons of pushups,” Parcak tweeted. “She was stronger in her mid 80’s than any M*GA f*ckstick bootlicker could ever dream of. Take that energy with you tonight and always into the voting booth, the polls, and online to donate.”

Parcak appears to have no shame about this tweet, as it has been up for four days and she seems to have no plans to delete it. Instead, she returned to Twitter two days later to launch an apparent attack on conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“Imagine a SCOTUS filled with qualified judges and not rapist drunken abusers,” Parcak tweeted, referring to the unfounded claims made by Democrats against Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.

Other Professors Are Doing This As Well

College professors launching deranged attacks on Trump and his supporters is unfortunately quite common these days. Just last week, we reported on a Marshall University professor who was suspended after saying that she hopes all Trump supporters catch coronavirus and “die before the election.”

It’s absolutely terrifying that these lunatics are the academics shaping the minds of the next generation.

Black Lives Matter Coming After American Families

Black Lives Matter, the trendy Marxist terrorist group that spews racism and murders children, made it a point recently to tell America they plan to “disrupt” the American nuclear family.

But, not to let that particular cat out of the bag just yet, on Monday they erased that plan from their website. But the Washington Examiner noted it and rained on their parade by publicizing the threat to American families.

Black Lives Matter Is Coming For American Families

The site read before they scrubbed it, “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement…” There you have it. They don’t try and sugarcoat it. They are blatant about it.

So, they intend on “disrupting” many American families with their own radical Marxist indoctrination. At least they did until it was brought to their attention that the threat wasn’t exactly smart public relations.

But is their goal something to work towards? Is the classic American nuclear family a bygone relic that should be scrapped?

RELATED: Black Lives Matter Activist From Indianapolis Admits She’s Actually White – ‘Used Blackness’ For Personal Gain

The Wall Street Journal reports:

“As for the benefits of the nuclear family, today Congress’s Joint Economic Committee issued a report by committee staffers Rachel Sheffield and Scott Winship. The report is called ‘The Demise of the Happy Two-Parent Home’ and explains why this trend is nothing to celebrate:

Researchers have well established that children raised by married parents do better on a wide array of outcomes. They have stronger relationships with their parents, particularly with their fathers. They are also much less likely to experience physical, emotional or sexual abuse.

They have better health, exhibit less aggression, are less likely to engage in delinquent behavior, have greater educational achievement, and earn more as adults. They are also far less likely to live in poverty.

The report also quotes Princeton sociologist Sara McLanahan: ‘If we were asked to design a system for making sure that children’s basic needs were met, we would probably come up with something quite similar to the two-parent ideal.’ ”

This is not to say that those brought up in different situations cannot thrive and prosper. But study after study shows children do better in a traditional family setting.

Black Lives Matter Is A Marxist Group

However, this view is not surprising from Black Lives Matter, as their Marxist disease motivates them to try and destroy America with any tool they can acquire.

In fact, during a 2015 interview, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors identifies herself and her fellow BLM co-founders this way, “I actually do think we have an ideological frame,” Cullors said. “We are trained Marxists.”

New York City BLM leader Hank Newsome said, “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking … figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.”

That drew this response from the president.

The president is right and America needs to become aware of what Black Lives Matter really stands for and what they stand against. By their own words, they stand against American families.

Ilhan Omar Says Those Who Dislike Her Are ‘Anti-Muslim, Anti-Immigrant, Anti-Black, Sexist’

Since being elected to Congress in 2018, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) has been embroiled in controversy after controversy as her own corruption has been showcased to the public.

She’s been caught doing things like funneling campaign money to her husband’s firm, and she’s been hit with ethics charges for fraud related to immigration, taxes, and even her previous marriages.

Though there are plenty of reasons for Americans to be wary of this congresswoman, Omar herself is saying that if you don’t like her, you must be an “anti-muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-black, sexist.”

Omar Says You’re Racist If You Don’t Like Her

Omar made this comment during a new interview with the New York Times in which she whined about how much “racism” she constantly faces in the United States.

During this interview, Omar was asked about a passage she wrote in her autobiography, “This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman.”

“I am, by nature, a starter of fires,” Omar wrote in the book. “My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”

“Couldn’t that kind of language be interpreted as a form of demagoguery?” the times asked the Minnesota congresswoman.

RELATED: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Blasts Ilhan Omar: ‘She Doesn’t Belong In Our Party’

Omar Responds

Omar had this to say in response:

It’s metaphorical. There are many times when people will say, “Something you said has agitated this space.” And it’s like, no, it’s me just showing up that did it. T

here are times when I will choose to not show up, because I know that my presence brings about intensity that isn’t going to be helpful. There’s no one else that exists in a space where they have to deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-blackness, but also with sexism.

People will say it’s my “tone.” I’m like, you’re agitated by my tone because you think people like me should be sitting in a corner, not heard and not seen. Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence.

So despite all of her documented failings and examples of corruption, Omar sees herself as perfect in every way. If you don’t agree with her, you must just be a racist!

This is what happens when identity politics goes way too far.

Hollywood A-Lister Judd Apatow Calls Trump ‘A Mass Murderer’ Who ‘Should Be Impeached For Murder’

The A-list Hollywood director Judd Apatow, known for such hits as The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, launched a truly outrageous attack on Donald Trump on Tuesday, calling the president a “mass murderer” who “should be impeached for murder.”

Apatow Calls Trump A Mass Murderer

“Donald is a mass murderer. Any comment which doesn’t make that clear is lying about what he is doing. He has chosen to misinform people to help him politically which is killing tens of thousands more people,” Apatow tweeted. “He is a mass murderer by choice. He should be impeached for murder.”

Apatow said this in response to a tweet from journalist Sam Stein, who was “triggered” by Trump’s optimism about the coronavirus having an affect on “virtually nobody” without comorbidities.

RELATED: Judd Apatow Calls For President Trump And Republicans To Be Prosecuted Because ‘They Are All Murderers’

Apatow Blames Trump For COVID Deaths

Apatow has made a name for himself in the past few months as one of the most anti-Trump people in Hollywood by repeatedly blaming the president for American COVID-19 deaths.

He is somehow blaming Trump for these fatalities despite the fact that the virus has killed hundreds of thousands of people all over the globe.

“Trump has no issue killing anyone to get re-elected. Make sure your voter registration is current,” Apatow tweeted last week.

That hateful tweet was in response to an ABC News that accused the president of trying to use the vaccine as a “political weapon” as part of the wider “wars on science.”

Apatow Claims Trump ‘Normalized Being Insane’

Earlier this year, Apatow seemed to indirectly blame Trump for his own craziness, claiming that the president has “normalized being insane.”

“He normalized being insane but we will vote Trump and all Republicans out in November. They care more about their power than helping people,” Apatow tweeted back in May. “None stand up and say the President is inept and that is a dereliction of duty. As a party they are responsible for thousands of deaths.”

‘The View’ Descends Into Chaos As Meghan McCain Spars With Cohosts About RBG’s Supreme Court Seat

“The View” went off the rails once again on Monday, as the cohosts got into a heated debate over the Supreme Court seat that has been left vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last Friday at the age of 87.

The segment started out on a harmonious note, as all five cohosts of the show, including conservative Meghan McCain, agreed that Ginsburg had been a game-changer for women and that her presence would always be felt on the Supreme Court.

“Well done,” said Whoopi Goldberg. “You spent your time as an American, you spent your time as a human being, fighting for the right thing.”

“The View” Derails

However, things went downhill when the cohosts shifted to discussing the debate on whether a replacement for Ginsburg should be named before the election. Within hours of Ginsburg’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that confirmation hearings will take place before the election.

“62% of Americans think the Supreme Court seat should be filled by the new president,” said Joy Behar. “We’re currently being ruled by a minority.”

McCain responded by supporting McConnell’s push to fill Ginsburg’s seat before the election.

“One of my biggest concerns is — if we have a contested election in 2020 and it’s split like it was in 2000, we have to have a full Court ruling on it,” she said. “The potential for constitutional chaos is absolutely the most imminent it has been in my modern lifetime.”

McCain went on to say that the nomination process of Brett Kavanaugh, which saw him be accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, “changed the game for a lot of Republicans, myself included. Democrats on their side will do anything and everything to smear any conservative.”

McCain Stands Strong

As McCain’s liberal cohosts started to push back on her, things got heated.

“47% of Americans are pro-life, Joy,” McCain said. “Every time I talk about it on this show, it’s received as if it’s this vast minority in the country.”

“I’m telling you, for people who are pro-life, not never-Trumpers … for people like me, it is a meat and potatoes issue, much like guns,” she added. “It will get people out [to vote], period.”

When cohost Sara Haines tried to read a quote from potential nominee Amy Coney Barrett, McCain was not having any of it.

“I would be very careful slandering her, Sara, before she’s even been put forth,” said McCain. “This is what I’m talking about with the Kavanaugh stuff!”

“No, Meghan, please just give me a chance –” said Haines, as McCain continued to talk over her.

Goldberg was finally left with no choice but to shut down the conversation and throw the show to a commercial break. As this Supreme Court situation escalates, you can expect “The View” to go off the rails plenty more times as the hosts battle it out over a potential nominee.

Left Explodes On Chris Matthews After He Praises Trump’s Respect For Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On Monday Chris Matthews, Chris Cuomo, and Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, all aided the Republican message, Klobuchar inadvertently. Strangely, Matthews and Cuomo seem to have done it respectively out of genuine grace and accuracy.

Matthews Offers Rare Praise For Trump

Chris Matthews, not a fan of the president, said the president was “right to show respect for RBG. “True presidential behavior. Far too rare.”

It was correct and gracious, kinda. There have been times in the past when Matthews has shown normal moderate Democrat sanity, which is one of the reasons he no longer has a show on MSNBC. His leftist pals jumped on him for showing the slightest regard for the president.

Leftists Explode

“Oh big deal,” said Joy Behar.

“He implied her grieving family were a bunch of liars today for relaying her dying wish,” former Amy Klobuchar communications director Tim Hogan wrote.

Hogan is incorrect. The president was referring to past statements in 2016 by RBG. Past the lionization now, it must be remembered RBG was a vicious partisan even while on the high court. The GOP and the president, while showing proper decorum, have not forgotten that.

“Every day. Every day, I had to go through this,” said former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann of Matthews. “I mean, anybody else see him on ‘Mission Accomplished’ night? I had to, I was co-anchoring.”

More Liberals Attack Matthews

“Oh. you must not have been watching the news …” actor Don Cheadle said.

“Did Chuck Todd repeatedly bludgeon you in the head with Chris Cillizza?” unknown writer Rafi Schwartz asked of Matthews.

“Lol. Whew these journalists are so desperate to declare ‘presidential behavior’. Go away, Mr. Matthews,” eye candy airhead Soledad O’Brien said.

How interesting. The tolerant party is not so tolerant of any disagreement.

Then over at CNN Chris Cuomo analyzed the Supreme Court controversy correctly by giving the advantage to Trump and the GOP:

“Look, this is a short-term win. I think it’s a win…I think that if they get this judge, it’s a win because if he wants people to vote for him, if he doesn’t deliver a nominee and it doesn’t get acted on by the Republicans, they’ve got trouble…I know that people say, ‘Well in races that are close.’ Who’s voting or thinking about voting for a Republican who doesn’t want them to pick a judge right now?”

And to top off the fun, Senator Amy Klobuchar slipped into coherence for just a moment.

“The people pick the President; the President nominates the Justice. That is how it works,” Klobuchar wrote.

Republicans Fire Back

Republicans had fun at her expense.

“I agree and @realDonaldTrump is the President. Glad to have your support on this Amy,” said Donald Trump Jr.

“Does someone want to tell her?? … We the people picked @realdonaldTrump! #FillTheSeatNOW,” Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA, wrote.

“Never thought I’d say this but I agree with Amy Klobuchar,” Trump campaign rapid response director Andrew Clark quipped.

Yup, a fine week already for the president and the Republicans and it may get much better.

Woman Who Allegedly Tried To Assassinate Trump By Sending Him Poison Is Identified

Over the weekend, we reported that there was an alleged assassination attempt on President Donald Trump when someone sent a package containing the poison ricin to the White House, addressing it to the president. Now, the person who was allegedly behind this has been identified.

Woman Arrested After Allegedly Sending Poison To Trump

Pascale Ferrier of Quebec, Canada was taken into custody on Sunday for allegedly sending ricin to Trump, according to The New York Post. She was apprehended by US Customs and Border Protection agents at the Peace Bridge border crossing near Buffalo, New York.

Ferrier was scheduled to appear in court on Monday, but her appearance was delayed until Tuesday. She had been living in the United States since last year, and court documents show that she was arrested in May of 2019 in Mission for using a fake driver’s license. Ferrier pleaded not guilty to this charge and spent twenty days behind bars before the charge was dropped because it was her first offense.

RELATED: Assassination Attempt On President Trump As Package Of Deadly Poison Is Mailed To Him

Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman Cpl. Charles said that on Monday, officers carried out a search of a condo in Saint-Hubert on Montreal’s South Shore in connection with the ricin-laced envelopes. While he said that there is a link between Ferrier and the condo, he would not confirm that she lived there.

“The RCMP is assisting the FBI in this investigation,” Poirier told reporters. “We believe a total of six letters were sent — one to the White House and five to Texas.”

Ricin Sent To Texas As Well

Though Poirier would not elaborate on where in Texas the envelopes were sent, Sheriff Eddie Guerra of the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office in Edinburg, Texas has since confirmed that ricin was mailed to him as well as to three members of his detention staff. Thankfully, Guerra added that nobody in his department was injured by the letters.

Ricin is a poison that is extracted from the seed of the castor plant, often called a “castor bean,” despite not actually being a bean. ”

“An average adult needs only 1.78 mg of ricin injected or inhaled to die; that’s about the size of a few grains of table salt—which ricin resembles visually,” according to Popular Science.

Mitch McConnell Shuts Down ‘Myth’ That Republicans Won’t Have Time To Confirm A SCOTUS Nominee

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor of the Senate on Monday to completely debunk the “myth” that the GOP does not have time to confirm a Supreme Court nominee before the election.

McConnell Says There Will Be Confirmation Hearings For Trump SCOTUS Pick

McConnell cited a historical precedent in arguing that the Senate actually has lots of time to confirm a nominee to fill the Supreme Court seat that was left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last Friday.

“President Trump’s nominee for this vacancy will receive a vote on the floor of the Senate,” McConnell said. “Now already, some of the same individuals who tried every conceivable dirty trick to obstruct Justice [Neil] Gorsuch and Justice [Brett] Kavanaugh are lining up to proclaim the third time will be the charm.”

RELATED: President Trump: If Dems Use Impeachment To Block Supreme Court Nomination, “We Win”

“The American people are about to witness an astonishing parade of misrepresentations about the past, misstatements about the present, and more threats against our institutions from the same people who’ve already been saying for months — well before this — already been saying for months they want to pack the court,” he added.

McConnell Cites Historical Precedents

Not stopping there, McConnell addressed the “incorrect” claims that the Senate does not have time to complete the process of confirming a nominee before the election.

“We are already hearing incorrect claims that there is not sufficient time to examine and confirm a nominee,” McConnell said. “We can debunk this myth in about 30 seconds.”

“As of today there are 43 days until Nov. 3 and 104 days until the end of this Congress,” McConnell said. “The late iconic Justice John Paul Stevens was confirmed by the Senate 19 days after this body formally received his nominations — 19 days from start to finish.”

“Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, another iconic jurist, was confirmed 33 days after her nomination,” he added. “For the late Justice Ginsburg herself it was just 42 days. Justice Stevens’ entire confirmation process could’ve been played out twice between now and Nov. 3 with time to spare. And Justice Ginsburg herself could’ve been confirmed twice between now and the end of the year, with time to spare.

“The Senate has more than sufficient time to process a nomination,” McConnell concluded. “History and precedent make that perfectly clear.”

And that, ladies and gentleman, is what we call a mic drop moment.

Trump Responds To Ginsburg’s Dying Wish – Questions If It Actually Came From Her

After Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday evening, it was widely reported that her final wish had been that no replacement be named to fill her vacant seat until after the election. President Donald Trump responded to this wish on Monday, questioning if it actually came from Ginsburg herself.

Trump Questions Whether Ginsburg Really Made Final Wish

“Well, I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by [Rep.] Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi?” Trump asked during a Fox News interview. “I would be more inclined to the second.”

Trump was referring to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“That sounds like a Schumer deal, or maybe a Pelosi or Schifty Schiff that came out of the wind. Let’s see, I mean, maybe she did, maybe she didn’t,” Trump added. “Look, the bottom line is, we won the election. We have an obligation to do what is right and act as quickly as possible, we should act quickly because we’re going to have probably election things involved here.”

RELATED: President Trump: If Dems Use Impeachment To Block Supreme Court Nomination, “We Win”

The president went on to say that his concerns over “fake ballots” in November make it especially important that the Supreme Court not be split in a 4-4 vote.

“We don’t want to have a tie, no we don’t, and we want to have nine justices, and we want to have somebody with a lot of talent,” Trump said of who he was considering to replace Ginsburg.

Immediately after Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87, NPR published a statement reportedly given by Ginsburg to her granddaughter Clara Spera that she dictated in the days before her death.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg allegedly said.

Trump Discusses Merrick Garland Controversy

Later in today’s interview, Trump talked about the controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s 2016 Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland, which was not pushed through by the Republican-controlled Senate. Trump blamed this situation on Obama, however, rather than on Garland.

“So I think Merrick Garland is an outstanding judge; I think he’s outstanding and I think he’s of outstanding intellect. He is liberal, that’s okay, but the only problem was — and this is up to the Senate — the only problem was President Obama did not have the Senate. I mean, I could go a step further, President Obama didn’t get a lot of judges,” Trump said. “That was an election of a different kind, we have the Senate.”

The president added that he is eager for the confirmation process to take place before the election on November 3, arguing that the last thing America needs is another negative experience during these trying times.

“I think [doing so] would be good for the Republican Party, and I think it would be good for everybody to get it over with because it’s always controversial,” Trump said. “And no matter who I pick, no matter how great the intellect, how brilliant the person … the Democrats will say, ‘This is terrible, this is terrible.'”
