Coral Springs event to push back against impeachment, target Ilhan Omar speech

Stop the Madness event Coral Springs
Trump supporters are set to meet at the Marriott Hotel in Coral Springs Saturday.

Backers of President Donald Trump will continue their campaign to push back against impeachment efforts with an event Saturday afternoon in Coral Springs.

That event is also slated to double as a protest against U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who is expected to to give a speech in Coral Springs that same day.

In September, the Republican National Committee began the national “Stop the Madness” campaign, which is designed to pressure Democrats in swing House districts to drop their calls for impeachment. The Coral Springs event is being hosted in part by Trump Victory.

Saturday, Trump supporters are set to meet at the Marriott Hotel in Coral Springs at 3 p.m. for a rally in support of Trump. That follows an event this past weekend, where Stop the Madness protesters gathered in Palm Beach.

But a show of support of Trump isn’t the only thing on the menu Saturday. That Omar speech is also scheduled to occur at the Marriott. The Florida Chapter of the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) is holding its annual banquet at that hotel. It runs from 5 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

“Florida voters have had enough of Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt. Instead of focusing on what they were elected to do, House Democrats refuse to address the real issues that are important to Floridians,” Trump Victory Spokesperson Danielle Alvarez said.

“Democrats like Reps. Charlie Crist, Stephanie Murphy, Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell have broken their promise to Florida and sided with llhan Omar and the socialist squad. They will be held accountable by Florida voters in 2020.”

Trump has repeatedly sparred with Omar, including spreading provable lies about her, such as claims she was partying on the 9/11 anniversary. Omar has argued those lies could put her life at risk.

But Omar has served as a lightning rod for conservatives since taking office in early 2019.  She earned bipartisan condemnation for comments labeled “anti-Semitic” by both parties before later apologizing. She also placed partial blame on U.S. policies for the recent crisis in Venezuela and accused the U.S. of “bullying” Nicolás Maduro out of power.

On the impeachment front, Democrats have continued to raise legal and ethical questions surrounding Trump’s push for the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Supporters of the President, unsurprisingly, have continued to frame impeachment as a waste of time and a distraction.

Support for impeachment has increased since late September. As of this posting, an aggregate of available polling by FiveThirtyEight shows 49% in support and 43% against.

Biden is currently running to challenge Trump for the presidency in 2020. Trump argues Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine are the source of potential corruption and that former Vice President Biden interfered with a Ukrainian investigation into Hunter.

Thus far, those allegations by Trump have been repeatedly debunked.

Hunter Biden did recently give an interview in which promised he would not work for foreign companies should his father defeat Trump and win the presidency.

He rejected the implication of doing anything unethical in Ukraine but said his decision to join the board of a Ukrainian gas company may have been a mistake because of how it looked.

    Re: Communist Menshevik Democrats

    These people are lawless! Anyone who is a registered Democrat at this point in time is mentally retarded or a hard cell Clandestine Communist!

    WE NEED TO FINISH WHAT HON. JOSEPH MCCARTHY STARTED AND RID OUR LANDS OF THESE VILE CONSTITUTIONAL SEDITIOUS TRAITORS! TEX REX!

    Congress NEVER voted to start an Impeachment inquiry! The United States Senate must be able to depose witnesses and the entire process must be made transparent and under OATH!

    READ YOUR CONSTITUTION, CITIZENS!!!

    Furthermore the President of the United States has full authority to start mass arrests, put these Communists in military camps for interrogations and deportations.

    THE CONSTITUTION AND FEDERALIST PAPERS ARE CLEAR! OUR HON. FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD KILL YOU AS QUICK AS LOOKING AT YOU FOR THE ACTIONS OF THIS DEEP STATE PERPETRATED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

    Re: Hunter Biden

    Everything! I mean “Everything” Ryan Nichols spouted in regurgitating left propaganda about Hunter Biden is a lie! Hunter Biden was being paid 10s of thousands of dollars a months to be on a board at that Ukraine gas company and Hunter Biden knows as much about gas as he does astro physics! LoL!

    Yes. So when the Ukrainian Authorities were investigating Hunter Biden, Joe Biden (Vice President at the time) told Ukraine authorities to BACK OFF or America will WITHHOLD military assistance! JOE BIDEN IS ON CAMERA ADMITTING THIS TO COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS!

    CLANDESTINE COMMUNIST OPERATIVES REFLECT THEIR ACTIONS ON THEIR ENEMIES YSING PROPAGANDA NETWORKS LIKE THIS!

    FACT:

    Dear Citizens ~

    Re: Unlawful Coup d Etat to Remove Hon. President Donald John Trump

    Citizens,
    We know the enemies of the Constitution! Act accordingly, vote REPUBLICAN or our SOCIAL CONTRACT is dead! Yes. Menshevik/Bolshevik Communists and collaborators wish to take over the United States!

    Furthermore Hon. Senator Joseph McCarthy was RIGHT! “The Naked Communist” by Hon. FBI agent Cleon Skousen. TIME WE FINISH THE JOB!

    Indeed. Other excellent books are “Battle Ground Berlin” or “The Black Book Of Communism.”

    Yes. Communism is ILLEGAL in the United States! The Constitution is clear! One can be arrested. Assess seized. Interrogated. Deported. And if one was naturalized citizenship thru Immigration? One would lose that citizenship! Yes! Tex Rex! Sedition against the Constitution whether verbal of physical is ILLEGAL! The Constitution mentions this 3 times!

    In essence it is ILLEGAL fir a DEMOCRATIC-SOCIALIST AKA MENSHEVIK COMMUNIST to HOLD or RUN for OFFICE in the UNITED STATES (Fact).

    TRUMP/PENCE 2020 Expel Demorats!
