Google searches for ‘how to impeach a president’ have gone up by almost 5000%

What an election this has been! It’s sure to be an even crazier Presidency. Some people want to know if there is a way to impeach President Trump (feels wrong to say) before he even takes office. The top five state looking up impeachment are Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.

The impeachment process happens inside Congress. It requires critical votes of both the House & The Senate. It is often said that the “House impeaches and the Senate convicts,” or not. Basically, the House first decides if there are even grounds to impeach the president, and if and when it does, the Senate holds a formal impeachment trial.

It’s no easy task to impeach a President.

In the House

  • The House Judiciary Committee decides whether or not to proceed with impeachment.
  • Then the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry
  • Next the Judiciary Committee will send another Resolution to the full House stating that impeachment is warranted and why, or that impeachment is not called for.
  • The entire House will debate and vote on each Article of Impeachment.
  • Should any one of the Articles of Impeachment be approved by a  majority vote, the President will be “impeached.” Only being impeached is sort of like being indicted of a crime, innocent until proven guilty. There still has to be a trial, and this is where the US Senate comes in.

In the Senate

  • The Articles of Impeachment are received from the House.
  • The Senate then formulates rules and procedures for holding the trial.
  • Trial is held and The President will be represented by his lawyers. A select group of House members will serve as “prosecutors.” The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will preside with all 100 Senators acting as the jury.
  • The Senate will meet in private session to debate a verdict.
  • The Senate, in open session, will vote on a verdict. A 2/3 vote of the Senate will result in a conviction and impeachment.
  • The Senate will vote to remove the President from office.

Here are a list of some impeachable offenses.

Lebron James rips on “bum” Donald Trump after Steph Curry comment

Published

on

Lebron James fired back at Donald Trump on Saturday after Trump sent out a tweet where he claimed that he had rescinded his invitation for Steph Curry to visit the White House. It’s become a tradition for championship teams to visit the White House but the Golden State Warriors have declined the offer and, after word got out on Friday that Curry did not want to go, Trump sent out the following tweet:

“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

Less than 3 hours later, Curry’s on-the-court rival wrote: “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”

James has been critical of Trump in the past and supported Hillary Clinton during the election.

On Friday, Trump took on the NFL when he said that NFL owners should fire players that choose not to stand during the national anthem.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued the following statement after Trump’s comments:

Tiger Woods arrested

Tiger Woods was arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida. Several media outlets are reporting that the arrest happened on Memorial Day at 3 am and he was released by Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50 am.

Authorities said that Woods was seen “driving erratically, all over the road” before they pulled him over. Apparently, an officer reached over to smell Woods’ breath and said that it smelled like alcohol and that’s when Woods became “arrogant.” Woods allegedly refused to blow into a breathalyzer and that results in an automatic arrest and license suspension in the State of Florida.

Woods, who underwent back surgery last month, crashed into a tree in 2009 after an argument with then-wife Elin Nordegren. At the time, there were reports that he was allegedly under the influence of Ambien. He was not charged at the time and it’s not clear if this arrest is for alcohol, drugs or both.

The Judas Rising Tour

Published

on

We all know Chris Jericho as one of our most beloved long time WWE superstars.  But few know him as rock and roll lead singer of a band called Fozzy.  If you have ever wondered why Jericho takes frequent breaks from being on the road from the WWE, this is why.  Fozzy has been around blessing our ears since 1999.  Jericho once even defined the band as saying, “If Metallica and Journey had a bastard child, it would be Fozzy.”

Band members consist of Chris Jericho, Rich Ward, Frank Fontsere, Billy Gray, and Paul Di Leo.  They recently just released a new single and music video for their some, Judas.  That eventually became number 1 on the iTunes rock chart in 8 different countries including the United States.  They have received over 3.4 million views on the music video.  The most recent stop on the tour was Joliet, Illinois.  They had everyone at The Forge on their feet.  They had 3 opening bands that were must-see’s as well!

Never Say Die

Never Say Die is a rock band from Tronto, Canada.  They opened the show with a number of great songs.  Tons of people turned out to help welcome this great band.  We all rocked out to their current single “Like a Nightmare”.  Highly recommend you give this up and coming band a peak!

 

Sons of Texas

Sons of Texas was the second band on the card. They were a little more open about what they sang about.  A few songs in they introduced their next one to all the guys wanting to get to business with their girls.  These guys were totally cool.  After their set, they even walked around and rocked out with the crowd.  Give them a listen next time you pull up iTunes!

 

Kyng

Kyng is a rock band based out of Los Angelos, California.  Out of the few listed above, you may have heard this band on the radio.  Kyng has toured before with the likes of Saliva, Seether, and Papa Roach.  They were the last set before Fozzy came out.  They set a great pace with a lighter-in-the-air type of ovation.

 

Fozzy

Fozzy opened their set with their new single Judas.  The crowd absolutely loved it.  They were very interactive with the crowd, including spraying water in the crowd in a very risque way.  The Judas Rising Tour is just about over with just a hand full of shows left.  Personally, this was my first concert ever and I am so happy I went to this one.  11/10 will go to any one of these guys shows!
