Could Trump delay the November election? Not without risking forfeit to a Democrat

(17.03.2020)

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service reached the same conclusion when it investigated the question in the aftermath of 9/11.

Under the U.S. Constitution, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence cannot stay in office past their four-year terms without being reelected. If the election does not happen for any reason, constitutional rules of succession kick in.

That could mean a lawmaker down the line of succession who is not up for reelection could be the new president.

In face of massive budget hole, Cuomo criticizes Schumer, Congress for not doing more to help states

The governor expanded his criticism to the entire New York congressional delegation, saying that all three federal rescue bills passed in recent weeks failed to address the state’s looming budget deficit despite his direct communication with senators and representatives.

“Why would you do that to the state of New York?” he asked of the restriction on Medicaid restructuring. ‘Why would you say, ‘Stop a Medicaid redesign that saves taxpayers money that has to be passed by the Assembly and has to be passed by the Senate’? Why would a federal government … trample a state’s right to [address] a Medicaid program that it runs? I don’t even know what the political interest is that they’re trying to protect.”

Massie defiant, criticizes leaders for preventing him from speaking on floor

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Friday for not allowing him to speak on the floor before the House approved a $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package.

Massie had sought to force a roll-call vote on the measure, earning a condemnation from President Trump in the process and criticism from a number of members of Congress.

Nancy Pelosi to Receive First Genuine Left-Wing Challenge in 30 Years

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will face a spirited challenge from activist and attorney Shahid Buttar in the November general election.

Buttar represents a unique, if unlikely challenge to Pelosi, the most powerful elected Democrat in the country and 33-year incumbent for San Francisco’s congressional seat. On Tuesday, Pelosi took 72.5 percent of the vote in California’s 12th Congressional District. Under the state’s unique primary system — where the top-two vote-getters in the primary make it to the general election, even if they belong to the same party — Buttar’s 12.7 percent was enough to get him on the November ballot.

Intel: Pelosi seeks to reassure Israel as Democrats debate military aid

(23.01.2020)

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is leading a congressional delegation to Israel this week amid an intraparty debate over conditioning military aid to the close US ally and Democratic efforts to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to attack Iran.

“And no matter what our party — or wherever we are within our party — the fact that we have the shared values with Israel and that is one reason for our joy in the creation of Israel as a historical miracle, the greatest accomplishment of the [20th] century,” Pelosi said at a working lunch with Knesset members.

„This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran. This resolution is similar to the resolution introduced by Senator Tim Kaine in the Senate. It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.

The House Resolution will be led by Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin. Congresswoman Slotkin is a former CIA and Department of Defense analyst specializing in Shia militias. She served multiple tours in the region under both Democratic and Republican Administrations.“

Dear Colleague on Legislating For The People in the New Phase of the Impeachment Inquiry

I believe that the truth will set us free, and the facts are clear. President Trump withheld Congressionally-approved military assistance to Ukraine for his political advantage and now is covering it up. Ukraine desperately needed this assistance. At least 11,000 Ukrainians have already died in the fight against Russia’s incursions into their country. The President’s actions undermined national security, jeopardized the integrity of our elections and violated his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

President Nixon resigned office because of the break-in of the DNC Headquarters for his political gain and the cover-up. Some observers of that sad time of our history say that President Nixon’s offenses pale in comparison to what President Trump has done.

Democratic Calls for Impeachment Inquiry Grow as Leaders Instead Vow to Toughen Tactics

A bloc of liberal Democrats began pressing on Tuesday for an impeachment inquiry of President Trump, underscoring party divisions and the growing difficulties that Speaker Nancy Pelosi faces as she tries to chart a more methodical course.

How long can Nancy Pelosi hold off impeachment?

What’s clear from the last 24 hours of closed-door meeting among House Democrats is that patience is wearing thin for Pelosi’s slow-walk approach on impeachment. There’s an itch for action — and Pelosi may not be able to keep her colleagues from scratching it much longer.

Attorney General Barr’s decision to mislead the public in his testimony to Congress was not a technicality — it was a crime.

Brexit: Nancy Pelosi steps up pressure on UK over Irish border

(18.4.2019)

So this was a message to some Brexiteers: if the Irish government is not happy, we will block a trade deal.

A US deal is perhaps the ultimate prize for the free-trading, ‚Global Britain‘ branch of the Brexit movement.

It would demonstrate that Brexit was worthwhile, that it allowed the UK to land big deals as an independent trading nation.

Trump Blasts Ilhan Omar: ‚Allegiance‘ Remarks a ‚Dark Day for Israel‘

(5.3.2019) A senior Democratic aide said Monday that leading House Democrats will offer a resolution Wednesday, supported by Pelosi, condemning anti-Semitism in response to Omar’s latest remarks on Israel.

It’s at least the third time the Minnesota Democrat’s words have drawn strong accusation of anti-Semitism and the second time in as many months that she’s drawn a stern backlash from party leaders.

(8.2.2019) Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the situation in Venezuela:

“I support the decision of the National Assembly, Venezuela’s sole remaining democratic institution, to recognize Juan Guaidó, President of the National Assembly, as the Interim President until full, fair and free elections can be held.

Trump Offers Temporary Protections for ‘Dreamers’ in Exchange for Wall Funding

But the proposal, which Mr. Trump unveiled in a 13-minute address from the White House, appeared dead on arrival in the Capitol. Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected it even before Mr. Trump spoke, and Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader, denounced the offer as “not a compromise but more hostage taking.”

With the shutdown entering its fifth week and polls showing a majority of the public blaming Mr. Trump, the president’s advisers have been searching for an exit strategy.

Trump invokes ‘Israel’s wall’ in tense exchange over border security

“I am proud to shut down the government over border security,” Trump said in the White House Oval Office meeting with Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California, the speaker-designate, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, the minority leader of the Senate.

“If you really want to find out how effective a wall is, just ask Israel,” Trump said in an extraordinary exchange in front of the press. “[It’s] 99.9 percent effective and our wall will be every bit as good as that, if not better.”

09.01.2019 - 11:58 [ Washington Post ]

Trump won the night. Schumer and Pelosi lost.

President Trump did something Tuesday night that he has rarely done since taking office: He used the presidential bully pulpit to reach beyond his hardcore base of supporters to make his case to the American people as a whole.

Speaking from the Oval Office for the first time during his presidency, Trump embraced our country’s tradition as a nation of immigrants, declaring “America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation.”

Donald Trump national address tonight from the Oval Office and Democratic response, live stream

President Trump will deliver his first prime-time address from the Oval Office Tuesday, as the partial government shutdown over border wall funding continues into its third week. It will be Mr. Trump’s first prime-time Oval Office address since taking office. The president’s remarks, expected to last roughly eight minutes, will air at 9 p.m. ET. Democrats have also requested time on the networks to respond to the president’s remarks. Shortly after the president’s remarks conclude, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will deliver a response, expected to be about five minutes long. Mr. Trump is demanding $5.7 billion for border wall funding, while Democrats say they won’t fund his wall. It’s unclear where the shutdown stalemate ends.

Democrats Unveil Changes To House Rules On Debt Ceiling, Ethics

Democrats plan to tweak the rules so that a motion to vacate can only be offered on the House floor if a majority of either the House Republican Conference or the House Democratic Caucus agrees to do so. The change limits the ability of any one member to wreak havoc on the floor and ultimately bolsters incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., against potential agitators in either party.

03.01.2019 - 13:35 [ Michael McAuliff, congressional reporter ‏/ Twitter ]

Looks like Pelosi will be having none of that intra-party rebellion Ryan and Boehner faced repeatedly from the right. This new rule for the House looks to end the ability of a single member to bring a motion to vacate the chair.

03.01.2019 - 13:15 [ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Abgeordnete des US Repräsentantenhauses / Twitter ]

Tomorrow I will also vote No on the rules package, which is trying to slip in #PAYGO. PAYGO isn’t only bad economics, as @RoKhanna explains; it’s also a dark political maneuver designed to hamstring progress on healthcare+other leg. We shouldn’t hinder ourselves from the start.

03.01.2019 - 13:10 [ Ro Khanna, Abgeordneter im US Repräsentantenhaus / Twitter ]

I will be voting NO on the Rules package with #PayGo. It is terrible economics. The austerians were wrong about the Great Recession and Great Depression. At some point, politicians need to learn from mistakes and read economic history. @paulkrugman @StephanieKelton @RBReich

Ocasio-Cortez slams ‘bad economics’ of budget deficit rule pushed by Democratic leaders

Khanna and Ocasio-Cortez say they’ll vote against the rules package containing paygo on Thursday. A total of 18 Democrats would need to vote against the package for it to be defeated. A defeat would be an embarrassment for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to be elected House speaker on the same day.

03.01.2019 - 12:56 [ CNN ]

Ocasio-Cortez, Khanna will vote against House Democratic rules over ‚PAYGO‘ spending restraints

Progressives who support programs like „Medicare-for-all“ and other policies likely to increase government expenditures worry that the rule would create a self-imposed obstacle with limited political upside — and come across as a sign that Democrats are committed to the austerity economics championed, at least rhetorically, by conservative groups.
