On Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show,” Fox Business host Lou Dobbs explained the Trump presidency and its historical significance, saying President Trump entered the White House a critical time. Trump’s entrance into politics certainly shook up the political establishment of both Republicans and Democrats running the show in Washington, D.C., Dobbs told host Sara A. Carter.

“It’s about a man who arrived at the perfect moment in history, to do what had to be done to save this country’s destiny and to restore our greatness as a nation. I after years, and I’m referring to both political parties, years of leadership that was not always in alignment with our national interest, and with the needs and the interests of the American people and the American working man and woman, this president chose the perfect, perfect time in history, to step forward or go down that escalator to announce his candidacy,” Dobbs said.

He added, “He (Trump) has changed everything. People may not even realize that for 20 years preceding President Trump’s decision to run for president, we had stagnant wages in the middle class. Now the middle class, right is the bedrock of this nation. It’s where the American Dream resides most brightly, it is so critical to all that we are and identify as, as Americans, it is where we look to if we aspire to the middle class, it’s where we look to, to, to arrive, and from which we hope that we will launch the next generation to do even better than we do.”

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
