Pelosi indicates Democrats may use impeachment to stop Trump Supreme Court pick
During an interview with ABC, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked whether House Democrats would use impeachment to prevent president Donald Trump or US Attorney General Bill Barr from acting to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Ginsburg, Fox reported.
“Well, we have our options,” Pelosi replied. “We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made.”
NBC reported that Pelosi was pressed again as to whether Democrats would employ impeachment tactics, with host Stephanopoulos asking if she was not “ruling anything out?”
“Yeah,” Pelosi responded. “We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. That is when we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”

Under Trump, US poverty reached its lowest level in history
Another story mainstream media doesn’t want you to know… While Democrats have doubted themselves as the guardians of the poor for decades, where they have failed, President Donald Trump has triumphed and staked a claim no other US president has ever achieved: Lifting Americans out of poverty.
Last year, prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the US poverty rate fell to 10.5 percent. It is the lowest in recorded history, according to economic advisor Stephen Moore, Newsmax reported.
“In 2019, the poverty rate in the United States was lower than it has been at any time since they started measuring it in 1958,” Moore said during an interview on Sunday, The Hill reported.
Democrats blame Trump for coronavirus pandemic, as rest of the world sees major surge
Newly diagnosed cases of COVID-19 are climbing around the globe. Yet, Democrats continue to try to frame Trump as incompetent, while ignoring that other nations continue to struggle against the invisible disease as well, and in many cases, are imposing new lockdowns and restrictions.
On Sunday, the chief scientific advisor for the UK, Sir Patrick Vallance, warned that Britain could begin to see 50,000 new coronavirus cases per day by mid-October unless further action is taken, the BBC reported. The health expert said that roughly 200 deaths per day will occur a month afterward. The UK saw 3899 daily cases and 18 deaths on Sunday.
Last week, a number of nations saw surging cases, including India, Brazil, Argentina, France, Columbia, Peru, Mexico, Russia, the Philippines, and others.
Israel initiated a second lockdown on Friday, September 11, for at least three weeks in duration, Bloomberg reported. In France, authorities designated 42 regions in the country as “red zones” where the virus was surging and where strict restrictions on gatherings and mask requirements were being enacted, the BBC reported.
