Sure, asking another government to help make a rival candidate look bad is not a domestic issue for the daily lives of Americans. On the other hand this is pretty much exactly specified in the constitution as a bad thing. Pelosi was not keen to begin any impeachment no doubt for some of the reasons you outlined. This one could not be ignored based on the evidence available. It's up to the house and senate to assess the case.

  • Almost 4 million jobs created since election...

     

  • etc


As most teachers would say: "show your work." You know how to create an unnumbered list, so you should know how to include a hyperlink.

Regarding "Trump's" creation of jobs, the economy does not work on quick timescale. There are natural ups and downs.

Trump is quick to jump onto any success, and to lay blame on literally everyone else if there's a downturn.

New York Times: Amid Recession Worries, Trump Points Finger at American Businesses

Washington Post: Who will Trump blame if we have a recession?

"Now, everything good that happens in the economy is his doing alone, and everything bad that happens is the fault of someone who is trying to undermine him."

Business Insider: Half of Americans would blame Trump for a recession if the economy tanks under his watch

And as you say "etc."

 

oh the original list of accomplishments is even more ridiculous

 

With an election less than a year away, the US economy booming, the sharemarket at an all-time high, record unemployment, with Asian and African Americans getting treated better than the ever did under the Dems, with loads of Dems vowing to impeach Trump right from the start of his presidency (some even before he got elected), with the massive hypocrisy of the Dem leadership, it seems to me the odds are easily in the Dons favor

I see Trump has signed off on the US Space Force.

 

It's being run by General Flash Gordon and it's mission is to defeat Darth Vader and the Death Star. Trump learnt about it in a documentary called Star Wars something or other (he can't remember the exact title) and he's really worried because it's so bigly.

The official White House website. Don't you think that's a little biased.

They seem to have forgotten Trump's previous accomplishments. It's so extensive you need a cheat sheet and a Wikipedia page to keep track.

This is a partial list of accomplishments
  • Four Bankruptcies
  • 3,500 lawsuits
  • 100 tax disputes
  • 3 marriages
  • Payments related to alleged affairs
  • Ignoring congressional subpoenas
  • Destruction of documents
  • Sexual-Assault Allegations
  • The Beauty Pageant Scandals
  • Racial Housing Discrimination
  • Mafia Ties
  • Trump University
  • Trump Charity
  • Tenant Intimidation
  • Alleged Marital Rape
  • Breaking Casino Rules
  • Antitrust Violations
  • Condo Hotel Shenanigans
  • Refusing to Pay Workers and Contractors
  • Undocumented Workers
  • Undocumented Models
And this doesn't even include "big picture" items, like climate change, USA / NATO world-wide reputation, trade wars, and generally bringing instability.

In the Bible, Lucifer is a force of chaos. In reality, it's Trump.

You left off the Access Hollywood “grab them by the pu$$y” tapes

The fact that Americans knew almost all of those things, but voted Trump in anyway, says it all.

What it shows to me is that half of Americans couldn't stand have a woman President after a black President.

They voted Trump because they think an abusive old white man is better than a woman - any woman.

I don’t believe that’s the reality of what actually happened.

Identity politics is evil. Blaming a loss on your genitalia is a sure fire way to keep on loosing.

Hilary lost because she’s part of the neoliberal elite, part of the corrupt Democratic establishment, part of the status quo that basically did none of the things Obama promised - no transformation, no justice reform, no foreign policy changes, not getting America out of any Wars, Guantanamo is still open

She was, and still is of touch with everyday American voters, she supports her Wall St backers - not Main St voters, and frankly, from a corrupt family with a corrupt foundation.

Americans voted because they wanted change after 8 years of none.

The way you post this it makes it sound like the Republican party is made up of angels that accept all people of the Earth in peace and the opponent, Trump, was God's envoy to Earth.

And yet they voted to change based on a misogynist, religious, racist party with a corrupt and evil candidate. Great change there.

By your logic, Maori should not be allowed to live in State houses, which also didn't exist in 1840. I think the idea is that pakeha latecomers owe them something for all the rapes, massacres, land confiscations, unjust incarcerations, poor health outcomes and general deprivation as an oppressed minority. But I guess you have a different definition of racism.

Undiscovered radio spectrum cannot be taonga

Being branded racist for calling out separatist policies is ridiculous

Your average Maori friends and neighbors won’t see a single cent of this money

Don't put words in my mouth. I did not brand you as racist. I said you appear to have a different idea of racism.
