Take two and more — #NebDems News

The striking thing about this week’s impeachment of President Trump was that it’s seemingly becoming routine. Been there. Done that.

As Yogi Berra said: “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”

This was not lost on The New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz.

A majority of Americans call Donald J. Trump’s second impeachment their favorite Trump impeachment, a new poll finds.

According to the poll, conducted by the University of Minnesota’s Opinion Research Institute, Americans who liked Trump’s first impeachment prefer his second one by a wide margin.

Although respondents expressed some sadness that this would most likely be the last Trump impeachment they would witness, they were overwhelmingly pleased to see the series go out on a high note.

“According to these responses, Trump’s second impeachment is that rare example of a sequel being more popular than the original,” Davis Logsdon, who supervised the poll, said. “This is not ‘Wonder Woman 1984.’ ”

Just five days until the nightmare ends.


NDP Chair Jane Kleeb commented after the U.S. House of Representatives voted 232 to 197 on Wednesday to approve an article of impeachment against Trump for inciting an insurrection that attacked the Capitol last week — with Republican Reps. Don Bacon, Jeff Fortenberry and Adrian Smith predictably voting against the measure.

“Bacon, Fortenberry and Smith are weak politicians who cannot even stand up to Trump when he incites a radical mob,” said NDP Chair Jane Kleeb. “They have stood silent and enabled Trump’s reckless behavior the past four years.”



The NDP is holding three events next week to help us mark the Biden-Harris inauguration.

January 18

We are joining the Biden-Harris team’s Day of Service by coordinating a food drive across the state as a way to give back for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many families are struggling with food insecurity and food banks are struggling to keep up with demand. Our goal is to help ease that burden.

January 19

We will be joining the Biden-Harris team in a national day of remembrance for those who have died because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will light up the darkness with candles and flashlights at two events in remembrance of those we have lost and in honor of those still battling this pandemic.

The two NDP events:

Lincoln: State Capitol (west side by the President Lincoln statue), 5:30 p.m. CT

Omaha: 72nd and Dodge streets (under the Crossroads sign), 5:30 p.m. CT

The NDP will also facilitate media members who want to talk to Democratic leaders in other parts of the state.

January 20

We are inviting people to join us and watch the livestream of the inauguration.


President-elect Joe Biden is tapping former South Carolina Democratic Party chair Jaime Harrison to lead the Democratic National Committee, according to three people familiar with the decision, a major victory for state party heads and the powerful House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn.

“Jaime will ensure all 57 state parties and territories have the funding we need to not only win elections but to also build up the infrastructure we need to organize year-round,” Chair Kleeb said. “We cannot afford to be a party that parachutes in resources at the last minute.”
