Things will get better--compromise will be imperative or all will lose

I have no control over it, but you can bet it will launch. Life has been difficult for the orange raccoon, it is about to get impossible. Enjoy.

How do you think 2019 will proceed now that democrats hold the majority in Congress.

1. Trump will survive, hopefully to be beaten in 2020 although I don't know who will defeat him.

2. People have forgotten that this whole mess started with "COLLUSION", with RUSSIA interfering in our Democratic elections.

3. Trump and his minions have attacked the legitimacy of the FBI -- of Federal Agencies they don't like, allies of DECADES of proven value to the United States, Trump thought that through EXECUTIVE ORDER he could rule America (and yet could not even get the Republicans to "repeal and replace Obama-care)

4. Trump thought he alone could change the 14th Amendment

5. Trump has withdrawn (read the U.S. has surrendered) leadership in Asia, the Middle East (thanks Jared) in the fight for climate change solutions, in supporting NATO, and in US efforts in Syria.

6. China landed on the moon, the dark side of the moon while Russia now has an operational HYPERSONIC MISSILE. With all that Trump allocated for the military America should BE BACK on the moon and have force-fields and flying saucers here on earth.

All this occurred with the Republican congress BACKING and SUPPORTING TRUMP Can you imagine what America will lose now that Trump is under "check and balances" of the Constitution?

a. America might lose Constitutional separation of powers

b. America might become truly isolated as our allies leave us to our fate under Trump

c. America might be openly attacked, first by cyber attacks, then by waves of migrants, lastly by having its ever increasing debt called in

d. McConnell and the Republicans will RAM through confirmations of otherwise "worst of the worst" people for leadership positions in government

e. American STATES controlled by Republicans will see HARD RIGHT EXTREMISM agendas rammed through as they see 2020 become a disaster for Republicans

f. American military commanders will report to Trump a loss of performance as the military loses respect and support for their commander-in-chief (As a result, MERCENARIES LIKE Black Water will be hired to run military ops in foreign countries)

g. The intelligence community will report truth to power, but Trump's delusions will not recognize the in depth threats from foreign nations

h. Trump will seek a distraction. WAR with North Korea, a nuclear accident with North Korea in Asia or an isolated conflict between America and Chinese forces in the disputed islands will occur

j. A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS will occur. Trump will be indicted for crimes, Trump will fight, and new legal ground will consume the nation for months up to the 2020 election.

k. Without American leadership - European nations will waver under Russian cyber attacks and Iranian terrorist pressure

l. Climate change will result in continued environmental disasters like wildfires, floods and hurricane damage to Americans with American federal response failing due to unskilled and poorly skilled administrators in the Trump organization.

m. Like an elephant taken down by the many thousands of small "ANT-LIKE" attacks of every crazy in the world, the fall from Greatness will accelerate as Trump and his people lose focus that their first job was not "for Trump" but for the interests of the NATION.

Former Bush adviser on Trump: He won’t be removed, but will leave presidency in 2019

"Alan J. Steinberg, a former adviser to former President George W. Bush, predicted in a recent op-ed that President Trump would not be removed, but would leave office by the end of 2019.

Steinberg writes that he thinks a "forthcoming recession" and "abysmal" approval ratings will lead to Trump making a deal to resign from office to avoid facing criminal charges.

“Trump will not be removed from office by the Constitutional impeachment and removal process,” Steinberg, who previously served as regional administrator of Region 2 of the Environmental Protection Agency in the Bush administration and executive director of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission under former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R), wrote in an op-ed published by released on Tuesday.

“Instead, the self-professed supreme dealmaker will use his presidency as a bargaining chip with federal and state authorities in 2019, agreeing to leave office in exchange for the relevant authorities not pursuing criminal charges against him, his children or the Trump Organization,” he continued.

Steinberg predicted that the president would be impeached by the House, specifically over his alleged involvement in directing his former attorney Michael Cohen to make payments in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election to two women to prevent them from speaking about affairs they said they had with Trump.

But Steinberg went on to write that he deems it “highly unlikely” that the Senate would also vote to remove Trump from office — a move he notes would require a defection against the president of at least 20 GOP senators.

However, Steinberg wrote that as the legal danger to Trump develops more, specifically following Trump’s recent response to a lawsuit from the attorney general of New York to shut down the Trump Foundation, it appears “virtually impossible for Trump to be reelected in 2020.”

“Accordingly, before the end of 2019, Donald Trump will resign from the office of the presidency: He will do this pursuant to a deal with the U.S. Justice Department, the incoming President Mike Pence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the New York Attorney General’s Office, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office,” he continued."

Not that anyone on the forum (including the moderator) is actually interested in discussing the forum question, but I will give my answer to the question anyway.

The Dem's have painted themselves into a corner that I don't see how they get out of. I suppose they could cave in on their rhetoric to "impeach" Trump and their rhetoric of total obstruction instead of actually governing, but it is hard for me to see them doing that.

I suspect we are going to have two years of complete anarchy in the government and the real problem is there are many people that are actually cheering that on. How pathetic!

If the Republicans in the Senate continue to stand behind Trump, it will be gridlock for two years with only potentially SCOTUS nominees being acted on. If the Senate Republicans abandon Trump, then I guess the leftists will have the disaster they have been pushing for.

For this Bible believing Christian, I take solace in the fact that God is in control, even though it is tough to watch sometimes.

Would you support allowing Trump immunity for himself and his family from all crimes IF he resigned from office?


b. The hatred and division in America

c. The disrespect and alienation of our best and finest allies

d. An ECONOMIC RECESSION because of his trade wars

e. The destruction of America's system of law just to get him out of office, a free get out of jail card because he is so loathsome.

Would you all King Trump and his family to escape retribution for their crimes just so America could get Republican President Pence?

I don't think so.

You can't believe in the Bible, be a Christian, and vote Republican. You can be one or the other, not proclaim to be both without being a hypocrite.

Given the abject failure of the House GOP oversight on everything Hillary/FBI/Comey, such easy targets with strong evidence, IG reports of wrong doing dozens pleading the 5th....

What makes you think the DEMS will have any success?

It's all a game, we are the pawns. Don't you get it?

Your team may look all shiny and new, but by the 2nd quarter it's the same old mistake prone, sloppy play on the field.

That's easy. Republicans made a foregone conclusion and attempted to find evidence to back up their pre-conceived notions of the Clintons. The Democrats will have no such trouble with Individual 1, already an unindicted co-conspirator.

The President knew the chances of the Republicans holding the house during mid-terms is nearly impossible. So he took care of securing the funds he needed with that in mind.
Spending bills have to originate in the House. Anything government spends money on has to be the House's idea. President Trump doesn’t care about the spending because he has what he needs. He even entered a hard line item for military pay raises over a four year period. No opportunity for the Leftist House to deny pay raises for the military. Which they would do without compunction.

The real target for the mid-terms was the Senate. He needed a solid majority. He needed to remove some of the traitorous Senators and replace them with Patriots. He succeeded 53-47
The Senate approves some of the President's decisions, especially his appointments of high figures (federal judges, Cabinet members, agency heads, etc). The House has no say in that stuff
