The Republican House majority in the 118th Congress is a total disaster, and has managed to produce the fewest legislative actions of any Congress going back a century and more!
Their move to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the first sitting cabinet officer to be so impeached, is a purely political disaster, as it comes after they have agreed not to consider a border security bill, due to the intervention of Donald Trump, who wants to use immigration as a campaign issue for the upcoming Presidential and Congressional Elections of 2024, nine months from now!
It is stunning that every one of the 17 Biden District Republicans went along with the impeachment, which will go nowhere in the Senate, and that even the so called “moderate” Republicans, led by Don Bacon of Nebraska and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, went along, causing a total loss of respect and common decency.
It is clear that there has to be total attack on all House Republicans, as well as all but a small handful of Republican Senators, and the goal must be to end the control of Congress by a party that has no principles, other than to obey and follow a Fascist, authoritarian, Donald Trump, who supports a Russian invasion of our NATO allies!
Tuesday February 6—ironically the birthday of Ronald Reagan—was a low moment in the history of the Republican Party, which has sold its soul to the evil Donald Trump!
A series of defeats:
Donald Trump was informed by a three judge Court of Appeals panel of the District of Columbia that he was not immune from prosecution for illegal actions he took to try to keep himself in power!
The Republican House of Representatives majority failed to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a major blow to Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, who should be removed as Speaker as a total disgrace!
A separate Israel aid bill that was offered in the House of Representatives to push the Senate to back, by having a two thirds vote, as an alternative to an all encompassing bill on border security that also included aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, also failed miserably!
This author and blogger was pleased to see that the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is in such disarray, and it is time for the disastrous speaker Mike Johnson to resign as a totally abject failure!
The Republican Party is on the run from any reasonable voter who has no desire to see a dictator named Donald Trump, who gives not a hoot about the border security matter or about the survival of Ukraine in its war against Russia!
