Over the last six months, it has become increasingly obvious there is no limit on how far Democrats and their media allies are willing to go to bring down President Trump. Because of their obsessive hatred of the president, they have wantonly placed our economy at risk of collapse, created a false constitutional crisis, and most recently, opposed the takedown of an Iranian terrorist leader.

No, the Senate can't have a trial before the House sends articles of impeachment

  No, the Senate can't have a trial before the House sends articles of impeachment President Trump’s Republican allies want the Senate to hold an impeachment trial to prove that the president is not guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. But Democrats in the House are standing in the way. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); While the House approved articles of impeachment last December, itsw Democratic majority has not yet appointed the members who will take those articles to the Senate and manage its case in the subsequent trial there.

In August, it was the economy. We were told repeatedly that a recession was imminent. The Washington Post ran an article titled “Stocks losses deepen as a key recession warning surfaces” discussing how recession signals had “intensified.” CNN ran an article stating, “Two recession warning signs are here.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., published an article titled, “The Coming Economic Crash — And How to Stop It.”

The business climate is a subject I know something about. I ran an international company for 16 years. I knew, and said publicly many times, that there was no imminent recession. Consumer spending accounts for about two-thirds of our economic growth and it remained strong throughout this period.

Let’s Blame Trump For Everything — Except the Economy

  Let’s Blame Trump For Everything — Except the Economy Americans want to know what their next president is for, not just what he or she is against. Charles Kolb was deputy assistant to the president for domestic policy in the George H.W. Bush White House from 1990-1992. From 1997-2012, he was president of the nonpartisan, business-led think tank, the Committee for Economic Development.The views and opinions expressed in this commentary are those of the author and do not reflect the official position of The Daily Caller.

The Trump economy is on fire. Desperate Democrats are falsely claiming only the rich are benefiting. Faced with these results, Democrats are desperate to obfuscate Trump ’s success, because they know that it is extremely difficult to defeat an incumbent president when the economy

Democrats cheered Mr. Puzder ’s withdrawal as a victory for working Americans. “We hope that President Trump ’s next labor secretary nominee, like Andy , has experience creating jobs and a deep understanding how to get business and government to work together to grow the economy .”

Could this overblown “recession” coverage have been an effort to cast a pall over the economy’s underlying strength, reducing consumer confidence and tanking the economy so as to topple Trump in 2020?

Of course it was, and at least one anti-Trump leftist was honest about it.

I don’t often agree with comedian Bill Maher, but I have to give him so credit for saying what he believes. When asked if he really wanted a recession, Maher responded “I do.” Why? Well, because “one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy.”

Luckily, consumers ignored the false recession hysteria. By December, The Washington Post ran an article almost apologetically titled “U.S. economy shakes free of recession fears in striking turnaround since August.”

The truth is that there never was a meaningful recession threat. It was just a bunch of Democrats and their media allies trying to create one.

Schumer: Dems will 'force votes on witnesses and documents' in Trump impeachment trial

  Schumer: Dems will 'force votes on witnesses and documents' in Trump impeachment trial Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vowed Sunday evening to "force votes on witnesses and documents" in the impeachment trial against President Trump starting this week, and suggested that Republicans were engaged in a cover-up to block Democrats from doing so. © FoxNews.com President Trump and New York Democratic Senator Schumer comment on the upcoming impeachment trial. During a news conference, Schumer questioned why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

For progressive Democrats , economic growth is readily sacrificed to taxation, redistribution – and Focusing on the economy may well be the biggest favor Democrats could do for Republicans in the Andy Puzder was chief executive officer of CKE Restaurants for more than 16 years, following a

By September, it was the “impeachment emergency.” Democrats claimed that the risk of Trump remaining in office was so great they could not take the time to get testimony from key administration witnesses before voting for impeachment. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., stated that impeachment was “an urgent matter” and Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., called it a “matter of urgency.” Note the emphasis on “urgency.”

So, the House rushed a vote to impeach – and then the urgency died. It’s just died. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now claims she will send the articles to the Senate next week, after sitting on them for a month. Why the delay? Well, she wanted to be sure the Senate would take the time required to call the very witnesses she failed to call because the matter was so “urgent.”

The reality – the truth – is that the impeachment proceedings against Trump are and always were a farce.

The Democrats’ position is nonsense. They are insisting that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-K.y., do what Pelosi would not do, even though it was her constitutional responsibility to do it; and they are trying to extort McConnell’s compliance by refusing to send him articles of impeachment he didn’t want in the first place.

Obama campaign guru: Trump would love to run against Bernie

  Obama campaign guru: Trump would love to run against Bernie Jim Messina says Sanders' socialism at the top of the ticket would be problematic for the party.In an interview with POLITICO, Jim Messina predicted that Trump would exploit Sanders’ stamp of socialism in battleground states needed to defeat Trump, keep control of the House and have a shot at winning the Senate.

Former CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder said Tuesday the Democratic Party is now "openly socialist" and is pushing hard against President Donald Trump 's economic gains.

Puzder drew the ire of Democrats and labor groups for his opposition to raising the minimum wage and his business record. In Washington, Democrats invited former employees to testify against their former boss and held press conferences denouncing his positions on labor issues.

That’s not statesmanship, or governance, or even politics as we’ve always understood the term. It’s the logic of obsession playing itself out in public view.

Democrats have now seized on Trump’s decision to take out Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a dangerous terrorist responsible for more than 600 American deaths among other atrocities, who was planning attacks on four U.S. embassies. This killing should have garnered bipartisan support, much like Obama’s taking out Usama Bin Laden. It didn’t.

Democrats and their media allies simply hate Trump more than they hate anti-American terrorists. He’s a bigger threat to their socialist agenda.

Warren admitted that Soleimani was a bad guy but said taking him out was a “reckless move” that “increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted that Trump’s decision “brought us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East.” Former Vice President Joe Biden said that Trump has “tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”

Of course, none of that was true.

Iran did not begin World War III as Democrats warned. Instead, it sent 15 missiles into Iraq, not one of which took an American or an Iraqi life. Iran’s foreign minister then tweeted that “Iran did “not seek escalation or war.”

Andy Puzder , right, was Trump 's pick for Secretary of LaborCarolyn Kaster / AP. In the end, it wasn’t Andy Puzder ’s track record on labor that tanked his bid for the job of labor secretary. Liberals were always unhappy with the Puzder nomination—his history of hostility toward labor regulations

Andrew Franklin Puzder (born July 11, 1950) is an American attorney, author, and businessman. He is the former chief executive officer of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee's and Carl's Jr., a position he held from September 2000 to March 2017.

The next morning, Trump acknowledged what we all knew. Faced with the power of the United States military, Iran was wisely “standing down.” Rather than throwing dynamite into a tinderbox, Trump utilized American military power to pour water on an inflammatory situation where an avowed enemy believed it could target our citizens, our allies and our embassies with impunity. Trump stood up to a regional bully and the bully backed down.

Democrats’ response was to pass a non-binding, meaningless “war powers resolution,” which Pelosi said was intended “to limit the president’s military actions regarding Iran.” In other words, the Democrats don’t want our president to take out terrorists like Soleimani until he gets permission from Congress. No doubt, this resolution was lauded in Tehran, where the mullahs would like nothing better than having this do nothing Congress restrain the first president to stand up to them since Reagan.

As we head into 2020, the American people will have a choice. They can reelect a president with a record of undeniable success who puts their interests over politics, the media’s whims and personal gain. Or, they can elect the candidate of a political party willing to tank the economy, trash the constitution and empower bullies all in the name of seizing political power. It’s a choice that is becoming all too clear.
