    They keep saying that they have a smoking gun. Over and over and over again, but still nothing.

    It's high time they either put up or shut up, because at this point it's fucking pathetic that they keep whining that Trump won.

    Anyone who doesn't blindly follow liberalism is sick to death of this shite, and will actively vote against the Dems just to spite them, so again:

    Put up or shut up.

    As bad as the Republicans have been shown to be even today, the Democrats are even worse. I hope that by 2035 the 2-party system in the US crumbles. I'd rather vote American Independent or even Libertarian these days.

    1. Often being against just about any kind of border security, be it border walls, putting sentry turrets+armed guards on the Mexican border, etc.
    2. Pandering highly to identity politics in many of the states they dominate, not calling out #BLM and Antifa shitbags on their use of violence towards people who don't agree with them.
    3. OBSSESSION with weakening the 2nd amendment via the Brady Law and taking advantage of recent school shootings to justify gun control because "muh safety and muh kids" BS.
    4. Blatant fucking hypocrisy on things like the Benghazi incident and Obama as to his track record.

    1. Majority of Americans do NOT want a boarder wall. Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million. Trump promised that Mexico would pay for it. To beg for even a penny from the tax payers is going back on his campaign promise.

    2. BLM and Antifa are a non issue compared to the "Fine people on both sides" Alt Right/Proud Boys/Etc who have killed dozens of people in 2017-2018. Almost every mass shooter in the last 2 years had ties or had been heavily influenced by said groups.

    3. Not a thing, like at all. Please become more informed.

    4. Investigations have concluded. It's a non issue. Also, a lot of false equivalency (you should probably look up what this means) and whatbaoutism here

    I'm assuming you're unaware of this, and that's ok. Hopefully you'll be better informed going forward:

    https://www.npr.org/2019/01/16/6860...a-overstays-exceeded-illegal-border-crossings

    TLDR: Most illegal immigrants are here due to overstayed visas and come here because of US citizens hiring them to evade taxes and what not. A wall does nothing for this. We should instead go after those who knowingly hire illegals (like the president has done in the past) with heavy fines and prison time.

    Legalizing and decriminalizing illegal substances would also reduce the number of illegal immigration.

    People are confusing Buzzfeed with Buzzfeed News. Their news department is actually pretty solid, and the guy that wrote this article has previously won a Pulitzer. It's only a matter of time before this is confirmed by other sources, and Cohen reportedly has several forms of hard evidence to back this up.

    This is just the beginning. Odds are we're going to see several more crimes that Trump committed leaked through the media before the final Mueller report drops and reveals a smorgasbord of crime and corruption.

    For a little historical context: the first article of impeachment against Nixon was 'obstruction by directing others to lie.'

    1.Majority maybe, but not as big as CNN and MSNBC like to tell its often limp-brained watcherbase.

    2.>non-issue
    No they are not. Plus, the ""Alt-right"" is nothing more than controlled opposition meant to play both sides like fools.
    >SCURP A DE DERP right wing white people da problem
    No doubt there are people who have been influenced by said people in the ""Alt-right"", though they make a big howl about it like dumb babies. Also, there are also people with disorders that many MSM take out of context.

    3. Yes it is! Many of the Democrat-controlled states have at least some form of dumbass-level gun control laws. Look at Connecticut, California,and Hawaii.

    4.Just because they concluded DOES NOT MEAN that they were conducted by honest people.
    Nice, try, half-wit. 1502499029594.

    I am so excited for him to be impeached so the alt-right can go back into the shadows of society and go back to being ostracized for being racist, sexist, closed minded, transphobic, et al. How lovely.

    I know that many folks from south of the border overstaying their Visas is a thing for sure. However, that does not excuse those still jumping the fence and smuggling drugs into the country via primarily underground tunnels! I say Have the INS fill in the holes by any means, be they blasting caps, TNT, cement, Napalm or incendiary bombs. 1540280644330. Maybe also put mines in certain parts of the border areas. Any illegal drug and organ smugglers found to be from outside the country ought to be pursued like any domestic criminal and if necessary, shot dead if they continue to resist arrest! 1506737102511.

    Unfortunately those people aren't going anywhere even when/if Trump gets impeached. If we elect a woman it would probably be pretty easy to get them on free flights to Russia, though.

    Look man, I'm not saying that we shouldn't do anything. I'm just saying that (and with evidence) the current approach to the situation does nothing.

    Also, seeking asylum is a legal approach. The actions of the US decades ago has destabilized many of these countries.

    Alright, this is like a legit sociopath line of thinking. You should seek mental health care facilities.
