(NationalSentinel) In case you missed it — and most Americans probably did — another Democrat has introduced articles of impeachment, again, against President Donald Trump, despite the fact that the vast majority of Americans, including Democrats, don’t support it.
“I’m here to indicate to the world that to tolerate bigotry is to perpetuate bigotry, especially when you can do something about it […] I’m a member of the House of Representatives, and I as a member can do something about it,” Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said during a live Facebook news conference.

“Each member of the House of Representatives can bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the House of Representatives. I’m here today to tell you, again, to bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the House of Representatives. I will do so by the end of this month.”
Green’s comments come after Democrats falsely accused the president of “bigotry” and “racism” over his tweeted comments to members of the House who frequently criticize our country and who have made blatant anti-Semitic statements several times in the past.
The president’s comments were believed to be directed towards Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich), though he never mentioned them by name.
And he never mentioned race. Democrats are pretending that his comments inviting them to return to their countries of origin to ‘fix all the problems there before returning to America’ were somehow…racist…because the three congresswomen happen to be minorities.
Apparently, minority lawmakers are off-limits for criticism unless, of course, Democrats are criticizing Republican minorities.
As for Green, he couldn’t even contain his enthusiasm until the end of the month. He made his third attempt at forcing a vote on impeachment the following evening after the House passed the resolution condemning Trump, according to the Arizona Daily Sun:
Texas Rep. Al Green has introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, potentially forcing a vote this week on whether to remove the president from office.
The vote would come too soon for most Democrats, as a majority of the caucus appears to oppose impeachment, for now. But Green is seeking to capitalize on a growing sentiment for impeachment in the wake of Trump’s racist tweets over the weekend.
Green introduced the measure shortly after the House voted to condemn Trump for tweets that four Democratic congresswomen should “go back” to their home countries. All are Americans. Green said Tuesday that Trump is unfit for office and “enough is enough.”
As with his previous attempts, it’s not likely Green’s latest impeachment push will go anywhere. As we have noted:
Whether it has been President Donald Trump’s constant labeling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s never-ending probe as a “witch hunt,” the investigation’s lack of evidence implicating the president in any nefarious Russian “collusion” plot, or both, a majority of Americans side with the nation’s chief executive, according to a new survey.
Not only that, but a vast majority of Americans have no appetite for efforts by the far Left and some Democrats to impeach POTUS Trump.
A new USA Today/Suffolk poll showing that Trump’s “witch hunt” messaging is resonating with a growing number of voters, while the public’s already-shrinking appetite for impeachment has cratered as well.
USA Today/Suffolk poll:
– 50% now believe Trump a "witch hunt" target, including 54% of independents. Faith in Mueller falls.
– Impeachment support slides to 28 percent.

Support for impeaching the president fell even further in recent surveys, which is why, as we noted, Democrat calls for it in the House have mostly subsided — which coincides with the president’s rising popularity, not coincidentally:
A majority of Americans don’t want to impeach Trump. But a supermajority of Democratic voters do. That’s Pelosi’s problem. https://t.co/CuCC7QguMS

In every single poll referenced above, a majority of the American electorate opposes House Democrats triggering impeachment proceedings. The minority cohorts that take the opposite view range from 29 to 41 percent.
In a pair of presidential battleground states surveyed — Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — support for impeachment is underwater by double-digits, including by 36 points in the Badger state.
Rep. Green needs a new hobby.
UPDATE: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is caving to the far-Left extremists in her party and is scheduling a vote on impeachment for Wednesday. Could be she just wants to get it out of the way so she can then go back to “The Squad,” Green, and the other Left-wing extremists attempting to take over her party and tell them once and for all to knock it off.
UPDATE 2: As anticipated, the vote failed…miserably (332-95).
