Impeachment Plan In The Works

So the nutso Left has a brilliant plan? Not exactly, this comes from the RINO, Never Trump nuts. But what’s the real difference, anyway?

Mission: Remove Trump from office
Plan: Force a secret vote in the Senate impeachment trial

Yeah, that ought to work! 😂

Never Trump strategist outlines plan to remove Trump by secret vote

by Tim Pearce | November 12, 2019 | Washington Examiner

A former adviser to President George W. Bush has proposed a way for Senate Republicans to remove President Trump from office while avoiding accountability from angry Republican voters.

Juleanna Glover is a veteran Washington hostess, lobbyist, and strategist who has worked on the staffs of Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Glover also advised Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain during his 2008 presidential run.

Glover, 50, a longtime Trump critic who supported independent candidate Evan McMullin in 2016, proposed a strategy for Senate Republicans to oust Trump should the House follow through with impeaching the president. In an article for Politico, Glover wrote that a handful of outgoing Republicans could take all the political heat and force the Senate to adopt a secret vote on the articles of impeachment passed in the House.

“Some might say transparency in congressional deliberations and votes is inviolable, and it’s true that none of the previous Senate impeachments have been conducted via secret ballot,” she said.

“But the Senate’s role in an impeachment is analogous to a U.S. jury, where secret ballots are often used,” Glover continued. “When Electoral College gridlock has resulted in the House picking the president — the House elected Thomas Jefferson in 1800 and John Quincy Adams in 1824 — that vote has been secret. And, of course, when citizens vote for president, they do so in private.”

Right, so how many millions of Americans are you trying to piss off? Or only the ones who voted for Trump? Your plan is brilliant if you want a successful coup against the POTUS. This from a former Busher. So undermine the presidency for all future.

Sounds like a plan. But then why even bother having a trial at all? Why not just throw him out of office without one? Since there never is any accountability — for years at least — of Senators and Congress, let’s just keep that shutout going.

Media Matters fighting SEIU

Media Matters Forces Secret Ballot Union Election

Lefty org adopts tactics it has decried to stifle workers rights

Leftwing lapdog Media Matters for America is taking advantage of the Republican’s “anti-union” agenda to stonewall the SEIU’s attempt to unionize its staff.

MMFA is forcing its employees to conduct a secret ballot election that will determine whether or not they can join SEIU Local 500, a Maryland union, according to papers filed with the National Labor Relations Board.

The liberal organization, which is headed by Hillary Clinton cheerleader David Brock, has hired management-side labor attorneys at Perkins Coie, a firm that has represented dozens of Democratic candidates and liberal PACs, to oversee the process.

It is unclear why Media Matters did not opt to allow its employees to organize through a card check campaign, in which a union submits signed petitions from employees expressing their interest to join the union. MMFA, its attorneys, and the SEIU did not return requests for comment.

Media Matters has a long record of slamming Republicans and conservatives who want to protect secret ballot union elections.

The organization published multiple pieces celebrating the Democrat’s so-called Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for unions to organize through card check campaigns and prevent employers from forcing a secret ballot election.

Media Matters researcher Meagan Hatcher-Mays took to the organization’s blog to criticize “a wave of Republican anti-union legislation [that] has placed obstacles between workers and union representatives and disrupted opportunities for workplace productivity.”

Hatcher-Mays cited a Wall Street Journal editorial that noted card check campaigns are far more likely to produce union victories than secret ballot elections.

The Journal’s “characterization of the card check process as a ‘deceptive procedure,’ is wholly misleading. Research shows that secret ballot elections, which the WSJ suggests are somehow more equitable than card checks, are deeply flawed,” Hatcher-Mays wrote.

Liberal writers criticized Media Matters for refusing to allow a card check campaign. Nick Baumann, a writer at Mother Jones, which is unionized by the Teamsters, tweeted out his support of workers on Thursday.

“Lefty orgs should walk the walk,” he said.

Labor watchdogs, including Richard Berman, executive director of the Center for Union Facts, slammed the perceived hypocrisy of Media Matters.

“One can only laugh at the number of ironies and hypocrisies in this situation,” he said in a statement. “It epitomizes the ‘not in my backyard’ complex that is also shown by unions themselves.”

Media Matters treatment of the SEIU undermines the pro-union rhetoric peppered on its website, according to Berman.

“Actions always speak louder than words, and what Media Matters’ actions show is that maybe unions aren’t that great after all,” he said.

When the Left starts to cannibalize themselves, get out of their way.
