Dems Want A Doormat, Not A President

Democrats don’t want to elect a president; they want to elect a doormat. There is a little bit of a misconception that Democrats want a strong executive for a president.

But no they don’t. They want a suit in the office and a doormat to the White House. They want someone who the mob can demand what they want to, and have him deliver on their every whim. He or she can then rule with an iron fist on behalf of the mob.

The other misconception is Democrats want someone empathetic. They don’t want someone to feel their pain; they want someone to heal their every pain. They don’t care whether the president feels for them as long as he/she performs on the mob’s command.

Besides, “feeling your pain” is a bit condescending, isn’t it? What is that worth?

Democrats don’t want democracy either. They want mob rule. That is as long as they control the mob and it operates in their favor.

Other than that, a president can issue a lofty, Obamaesque speech occasionally to make them feel good. But what he does for them is much more important. And they are a demanding bunch of intolerant brats, with a wish list longer than War And Peace.

Joe Biden delivered an address to Democrats adding a quip about his father saying:

“My dad used to say, “Joey, I don’t expect the government to solve my problems—but I sure expect them to understand it.””

Understand it? That’s about the last thing it seemed capable of under Obama-Biden.
Now let me loosely revise that into a simple theorem of my own.

I don’t expect government to solve my problems….. But I don’t want them to get in my way and keep me down there, or cause me more problems.

I do expect government is incapable of feeling my pains when I have them. But I just don’t want it to cause the pain. And I certainly don’t need it to extort my problems.

But when government does cause me problems and pain, I have a First Amendment right that says I can spell out that problem.

So Joey is trying to create a code to live and govern by. Well, he is a little late. We see the kind of code he and Obama operated by over the years. His family is enriched by his “public service.” Public office is a self-serving position, to him, not a selfless service.

Do you think his dad always told him that? Or did his father tell him that other people’s pains and losses are just a political opportunity for him and other elected pols to extort? That a crisis is an excellent opportunity to abuse political power.

Where did those values come from, Joey? And what oath of office mentions those?

Don’t you always love getting lectured about “values” from Democrats when they prove they really have none? They do their moral preening but then take advantage of every problem or crisis, even when creating it themselves, for pure political gain. Then rub your face in it. This skill is what they are really good at – turning your pain into their gain.

Enemy Within, Game On

Ilhan Omar Calls for the Dismantling of the US economy, political system.

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. economy and political system Tuesday.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Omar held an event Tuesday in her home state of Minnesota with members of the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus. Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was to address “racism in policing” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death..

Omar has joined calls from local Democratic leaders to defund the police after four Minneapolis police officers were fired and charged in connection to Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to get rid of the city’s police department in June.

First it was abolish ICE, then it was abolish police, Then it was the economy, get rid of it. Okay, so let’s just dismantle the whole US system? So she is making it completely obvious, she is against our entire system.

Come here as a refugee from Somalia, and then proceed to tell us our entire system is oppressive — after becoming a US Congressperson — and needs to be torn down.

 

For your reading pleasure, here is what Trump said about her just 2 weeks ago:

Washington Examiner

“Ilhan Omar is going to be very much involved in a Biden government. They will put this hate-filled, America-bashing socialist front and center in deciding the fate of your family and deciding the fate of your country. I don’t think so.”

“She would like to make the government of our country just like the country from where she came. Somalia.”

“No government, no safety, no police. No nothing. Just anarchy. And now, she’s telling us how to run our country. No, thank you,” Trump said.

Oops, right again! Yet he was roundly attacked for what he said. Give me a break!

What Will You Kneel To?

Well, after 4-5 years in the making, has it all come down to this kneeling thing? There sure is an obsession about it. I can’t resist stating but kneeling for all the wrong reasons.

It started with Colin Kaepernick, when we all watched the protest symbol of decades become taking a knee to the national anthem. It was poo-pooed as a real issue but then respected by some as a form of protest. And protest it was but against cops, America or most everything about it.

It made Kaepernick famous for all the wrong reasons. It pretty well outed him as the radical he was. And those socks didn’t help any.

So we went through this cosmic kabuki dance where we decided we didn’t need that celebrated for the political opinion that it is. Sure we could have respected his right to his own views and speech, but this was football and his job, not his own youtube video.

But then, like everything the left does, they have to keep on pushing it. Why is it just because he is in perpetual protest I should have to agree with him? I shouldn’t and that is the point. After all, I have my free speech too. That freedom becomes a problem.

That all seems to go upside down now.

Black Lives Matter came along and we knew what they were about. It was a radical outfit with views that did not represent all Americans. BLM chased people off the stage and screamed over people, interfering with their free speech for not repeating those words and endorsing BLM’s views. Even Bernie was targeted.

They claimed they were not a political group or party. They were called non-political. Now we know them for the highly political group they are. We argued, then, that they were a radical shill for Democrats. They denied it.

Since Kaepernick started off his protest by kneeling, what better thing to do than have everyone kneeling to BLM and a movement of radicals? Now of course, anyone who does not is shunned and branded a racist. How many people bowed down to Black Lives Matter? Do they know what they’re doing?

If you didn’t understand it before, everyone should now. It is a complete turn around. Company’s grovel at BLM’s feet sending them cash. For what we don’t even know? They can all pretend BLM has no political agenda. They can even pretend what this is about.

Where did BLM go to reform itself and change its radical ways? It didn’t, it didn’t have to. Seems everyone came to them. It’s now mainstream and everyone is cool with it. What changed was the people. They have accepted these political pariahs and misfits as the cats meow they are not. And everything is supposed to be perfectly fine with this picture?

Remember Tea Parties were shunned and branded extremists. The BLM who are extremists and radicals are mainstreamed. Welcome to Crazy Town. The population is growing fast but be quiet about your normal views or we’ll ask you to leave. Common sense will not be tolerated. Thinking for yourself is not allowed.

So they’ve made taking a knee normal and the proper thing to do. But it is also kneeling to an organization with Marxist roots and no allegiance to this country, or freedom.

It has an entirely anti-American agenda and political platform. It is a radical organization run by the same It doesn’t respect our process or accept our economic system. It wants to change all of it. Venezuela and Cuba are its models. They are hardliner Soviet-style Bolshevik revolutionaries in the style of Socialists, Maoists and communists. There is no room for freedom loving nationalists, in their view.

Take a knee to that, and them, I don’t think so.

Then again, in all of it kneeling for the wrong reasons. It isn’t even in protest anymore, It is kneeling in submission to a Marxist political movement. Since when do we do that? While we could be on our knees to God asking for help to oppose and resist this humanism plot.

First it was sit down and shut up, and now it is kneel down and submit.
Just curious what oath our elected officials swore to? And what do they kneel to?

Somewhere in the back of it all, Freedom Still Matters.

World’s Worst Regime

China is now the undisputed worst regime in the world. Coronavirus only peeled away any arguments to the contrary. The world has been infected and changed by China.

On a personal note, I woke up this morning dreaming how bad things have gotten, seemingly turning everything upside down. Except it is not really a dream. What a difference 2 months have made. We also topped 50k dead in the same time.

If you want to do a simple experiment, try going to a funeral home website in one of the affected areas of the virus. You can look down a list of obituaries, which normally are filled with details about a person’s life, only to see death was related to COVID-19 – no services. It leaves a surreal knot in your throat.

How much has changed in America in a few short months? Well, the list is long from the economy to all the personal matters. Too long to list here. How big those changes are: from funerals to sporting events, schools, to shopping and having family gatherings.

Then last week the FBI Director, Chris Wray announced the major problem across the country is Coronavirus hate speech. Or people hating on the Chinese because of Covid-19. So that is a top priority for FBI to investigate? Of all the urgent priorities to take up, but he had to issue warning and guidance to all their FBI offices to be on the lookout for it.

We can compound that with the problem of getting out Coronavirus economic aid to people and small businesses. Look at the same old typical responses in Congress. Mass exodus, they went to ground but they still clung to those leftist ideological dreams over lives.

But let’s not lose sight of the forest for the trees. All this, hard as it is to remember, ties directly back to the original China cause of Coronavirus in the first place.

Then we have the whole political perspective problem. Congressman James Clyburn said that Coronavirus was a huge political opportunity. Corona Cuomo said we have to re-imagine our entire economy in reopening it. Re-imagine? Nancy Pelosi held out for weeks for her political agenda of the Left. The users and abusers surround us while we fight off a pandemic. Their rationalizations are absurd, yet we must fight the pandemic disease too. Note to Cuomo, there was nothing wrong with the economy pre-COVID-19.

AOC announced that when the economy does reopen, workers should all boycott it by refusing to go back to work in some sick act of political solidarity. How’s that help?

But in the end, we must remember and never forget the actual cause of this Panditrosity was entirely set off by China. The rest and even the political atrocity are all still symptoms of that whole. Do not lose sight of the origin of this pandemic, regardless of what Dir. Wray says. It was not caused by hate or the economy either. It was the other way around.

Andrew Cuomo said in a daily briefing that the new boutique industry in the US is now mask art. With that he smiles. Have we become a mask-wearing people?

So we have succumbed to wearing masks as a last resort to protect ourselves and others. For years we have seen this strange phenomena in Asian countries of wearing masks in public. We always assumed we don’t wear masks here in public. Well, now for ourselves and because of government guidelines, we are wearing masks. What a change.

Let’s hope the mask fad is temporary. But mask art?

Still that barely touches the surface on all the strange new things brought on by this. I will leave you with one extra thought. We may never know what would have been, we can only guess, but the year 2020 was shaping up to be something else entirely. COVID intervened. Whatever that was would have been better than a pandemic. We will never know. And there would have been 50 thousand more people alive to witness it. Thanks China!

Smooth Swamp Operator

Deep in the vestiges of the habitat known as the DC Swamp, trolls the last remnants of this dynasty like no other. They were bathed, baptized and weaned into the Swamp culture. It was their established ecosystem.

Every region has its own tales, either myth or legend, of all sorts passed down through local residents. No one may know the exact source of these stories. What is important is that they are — or in the words of locals, that the stories themselves exist in fact or fiction for each person to make his/her judgment as to legitimacy.

Taken with a grain of salt, or swallowed in whole detail, it is up to each to accept, reject or dismiss these taller than life tales. Some people reserve judgment and would rather not say one way or another. Some people are quick to pronounce a verdict or their own theories about them. But most at least have heard of the legends.

The mystique about them seems to take on a subculture of its own. In some cases, they are only tall tales started by someone sometime. In other cases, there is substance as basis for them. Some were jokes and others were far from it. It really is a mixed bag. These tales live on to become part of the heritage of locals.

But in one such case, at least, there have been rumors and stories for decades that were not completely confirmed. All of them revolved on the very idea of a Deep State working on its own will within, which permeated the basin known as the Swamp in DC.

Many of us believed in the idea and many rejected it with a vengeance. But it was a topic of debate based largely on hearsay evidence and speculations. Opinions ran the gambit from belief to absolute denial. And those of a particular view were branded conspiracy theorists or tin-foil hat dupes. It was seen more like taboo or voodoo.

But in this type of debate there never really was a right or wrong view. All were welcomed and were all treated with a fair amount of skepticism – from deniers to theorists. No one could claim victory with certainty.

That is until recently. No longer can the topic be only dismissed out of hand. But a conversation about it all has still not been forthcoming. I wonder why?

Well, old habits die hard. Old opinions have deep roots with tenuous attachments it turns out. It is hard to dismiss something you have vehemently denied for decades, much less dignify it by talking about it. It is rather inconvenient for deniers to admit to. No one relishes being duped. Some can simply pretend it has not been exposed. Now the truth is finally out there.

But ironically within, for the group that makes up this network of Deep State, everyone knows how real it all is along with how much power it wields. That is not disputable. In fact that is the whole point of it all. There is a collective pride knowing they are the movers and shakers who matter in the realm of power. Even creatures of the swamp know their own habitat. And they know it well.

No one would ever convince this Deep State they did not exist or were not a real power. They would chuckle at the denial. It would not be controversial to them. They see constant proof of their affect and thrive on it. The more overt proof is the more pride in it.

And the only thing that could threaten them, or the habitat that spawned them, was a negative outside force opposed to their existence. One cannot oppose something if one does not acknowledge it is there. Confronting it was never something anyone was willing to do before. That really was taboo. After all, Deep State has the means to fight back and is quite willing to use it.

The swamp has its own scorekeepers and enforcement mechanisms. It is a sovereign environment where the only enemies are outsiders who might venture across its path. Deep State deals with opponents the way it sees fit. When you are the enforcers, you are granted special privileges. But their first priority is always to protect the ecosystem of the swamp. Thus, it becomes a self-supporting, independent environment of its own, accountable really to no one – especially outsiders.

How could anyone even contemplate dismantling it? The Swamp would evolve to suit its own survival whenever threatened anyway. No doubt many who did venture across its path just decided to leave well enough alone. Plus any other outsiders would not necessarily believe in one’s dilemma. That would be to admit it exists, which people were not willing to do. (Openly at least)

Along came the movement and then presidency of Donald Trump. They had no illusions about the reality of Deep State or the Swamp. It had been seen in things like Benghazi and was working its will in the Hillary server and ‘pay to play’ investigation. It was behind the scenes in the IRS scandal targeting conservatives. And we just knew, without doubt, which political side it was really on. It never seemed to oppose Democrats. It always covers for them. Nope, no questions about its existence.

The further Trump’s campaign went the more obvious the power and influence of Deep State became. And when he was elected, all hell really broke loose including a prepackaged insurance policy designed to blow up his presidency. It not he has the final say.

The beauty of their system is it is hard to point to one culprit when it is coalition of now radicalized operators within, skilled in the arts of using government for their own swampy interests, to serve their personal gains.

The smooth swamp operator is the combined concert of parts and people serving the political interests of the Swamp. Besides, when would the ecosystem that created it all, in their various capacities, ever fight back against the habitat? So they confidently troll on.

Division: stick a fork in it or just stick it

My, time really flies or does it? This week should tell anyone all they need to know about the current situation. Desperation and destitute.

  • The Super Bowl Sunday
  • Iowa caucuses go rogue.(results not clear till Friday)
  • Impeachment closing arguments.
  • State of the Union address
  • Pelosi’s meltdown and Democrats’ protest
  • Statements and impeachment vote in the Senate
  • Trump acquitted on articles of impeachment
  • Prayer Breakfast
  • Thursday, Trump thanks supporters and outlines this full-term coup
  • Friday clean out the NSC in White House (Vindman brothers fired)

And by Friday afternoon, Rep Debbie Dingell told CNN how divided we’ve become and that we need to unify the country. She said social media was so polarized and hostile.

But they just impeached and then tried to remove the president in a trial literally 2 days before. Now they’re lecturing us on unity? See a pattern here? Cause and effect.

The most divisive thing they could do to the country. How’s that for chutzpah?

They spent 3 and 1/2 years investigating the president and ripping the country apart — by overturning an election and rigging the next one, trying to get Trump off the ballot. Abolish the will of the voters. Now they want to complain about division. Right on schedule.

Give me a break!

But that is why you can never believe a thing Democrats say!
It is usually the opposite. All lies.

Full-Court Press

I made the case a few days ago about the personal dichotomy but it goes much larger than that. In this vein you have a positive outlook while there is a volcano of negativity surrounding you constantly. It is the feeling of being bombarded from everywhere by constant negativity no matter what good you see happening. Wonder why?

Meanwhile, the left and its media comrades bash the president on every word they can. What he does in his policies not as much. Most of his policies have had positive outcomes and the fruits are all around us, for anyone who wants to see them. But those never get the attention in the airwaves. Instead we are treated to a cascading critique over every little word he speaks. When Trump zooms in on the fake news, they cry foul and abuse.

Media delivers the goods. They are judge, jury, and executioners — the Full-Court Press.

A perfect example of this playing out was on Don Lemon this week. He had notoriously vile Rick Wilson, Republican turned Republican hater, commenting on the nature of Trump and his supporters. Wilson turned it into a mockery diatribe of dumb, redneck supporters who succumbed to Trump’s every word and command. Lemon busted out laughing to the point of being out of control like it was a comedy show. So they all had a barrel of laughs at the expense of mocking Trump voters.

The following night, Don Lemon’s focus of attack was at Trump for picking on the media. How cruel it was. Press is again the biggest victim. It’s a little hard to feel sorrow for the villainous media when they attack people for voting a certain way.

But when they play that victim card, they demand everyone’s sympathy. And they demand your anger is turned to blame Trump and his nefarious supporters. It’s our fault. How can media be the real victims when they regularly attack voters in prime time?

Never mind the voters and people across the country they insult every day. This creates a nice flashpoint every time they choose to ignite it. In typical faux fashion, Lemon came on the next night, before playing the victim card, claiming he was not laughing at the people but at the joke. But the entire joke was us and the punch line was very clear…. us.

Even though the House Managers put on their slipshod impeachment trial in the Senate, the media treated it with the solemn certitude of a State funeral, complete with nonstop coverage and commentary. But it was a joke. The whole thing was like a comedy sketch with no off ramp that eventually has to end. Everyone knows it but can’t find an exit.

And when it did end, with the predictable results, they poo-poohed their own play as a dismal failure because it did not achieve the desired end. We could have told them that. But instead of blaming their own lousy script and collective performance, they lashed out by attacking the audience for failing to deliver success to them.

No one could convince them their work was only a mockery of the process; they refused to listen. So they created a narrative in the House that didn’t sell in the Senate — and they even went about that deviously. They still want you to see them all as victims.

Did they really think they could sell their creation on perception and glitter? Fool’s gold.

Culture Caldron

Every so often one has to reflect and do a little culture check, the crazier things get.

Leave it to Trump, in one statement, to frame the entire issue in a campaign speech.

From a Des Moines, IA rally, Trump said something like “we are living in the greatest years now in history…. and I just got impeached. Can you believe it?” He got laughs and cheers. They got it.

Think about that analogy a minute. So finally, the economy is really on the upswing, opportunities and wages are up. There are a lot of good things happening.

At the very same time, you look what is happening around you and you can’t help wondering what has gone wrong? I mean the crazy things happening with the anger toward Trump and his supporters. People are desperate to take him down.

Government is running amuck in the Swamp fighting back. Deep state is in a fever pitch.

Yet there are plenty of good things on the horizon, life is good compared to the last ten years. Or it should be. What is with all the mixed signals aimed at us?

On one hand, things are finally improving that we’ve only hoped for over the years. But it is all dampened by this cultural turmoil over everything.

Then we’re told the world only has a few years left. Is it down to the countdown yet? Everything is rotten if you listen to these triggered, crazed people. So the secular world is telling us we are on the verge of apocalypse. Now that is rich, coming from that crowd.

Any joy you should feel is bombarded daily by this message of doom and gloom from Democrats and media. There is so much pent up hostility in them that you wonder if they are living in the same world you are, and seeing the same things?

It’s kind of like Trump, who wins the election only to have them try everything to throw him out. But he won’t go and neither will we. Why should we have to?

What’s wrong with this picture? It is a real dichotomy.

On one hand, there should be plenty to be happy about but the last thing they all want you to be is happy. They really try to make that a challenge.

It seems like Democrats’ job is to make mud pies out of all the good things or destroy them. And they have their hands full trying on that mission.

Here are you and I with everyone else, sitting smack in the middle of this whirlwind of discontent. Plus many of these dissatisfied people believe socialism is a panacea that will take all their worries away. Crazy.

If they can believe in some socialist utopia, then they need help. (not the kind they want)

They just seem to want to bring everyone else down to their misery. It looks like we are the ones who have to live and deal with it because it doesn’t seem to matter to them.

So in a crazy way, Trump is right. Life is great, they want to impeach him and throw him out. Ha ha, as if that would fix any of their problems!

Judgment Call

Time for a judgment call on the state of impeachment sham. That is on the common perceptions of some notable people.

I’m not buying the Andrew McCarthy summation or drinking that juice. He now suggests on Fox that even if you assume the conduct in question happened, it does not rise even close to the level of impeachment.

Then he asserts it is bad behavior etc. or improper but it is not impeachable.

I don’t agree with most of that. Assuming the conduct of what is being described, and that is a stretch, it is not necessarily “bad” conduct. Controversial – yes. But bad? No. It sure is nowhere in the impeachment field. I don’t qualify asking for an investigation or looking into possible corruption as bad or malicious behavior.

Remember, Andrew McCarthy is also the one who stated at the onset of Russia fever that with those accusations there would have been enough grounds to open an investigation and it would bear out innocence. But worth investigating was the verdict.

No, there were not grounds for that investigation. It was a cooked up scheme to force an investigation – and subsequent coup. Now he says, just based on the numerous facts we know, it would be wrong or bad behavior to ask a foreign government to look into it.

Hogwash.

Right Ring | Bullright

Extortion of Process

Let me explain just one part of how the Democrats plan to use the impeachment process to serve their political ends. You know the masters of scamming the process.

It goes like this, as described by one Democrat Senator to CNN: first the Democrats put on their case. Then president’s team puts on the president’s defense.

But unlike in a regular trial, there is no opportunity for the House Managers’ rebuttal to Trump’s defense. What to do? Then the questions period closes out the process.

So — this is the great part — according to the Senator, Democrat Senators will use their super nifty questions period that follows to do that partisan rebuttal work against Trump. What part of this process is not politicized, hedged and schemed by Democrats?

And you know what that will look like. All the activist Democrats, House Managers and Senators, will operate at peak collective strength, using their corrupted and highly partisan process for maximum political benefit. All hands on the coup deck.

Yet all the while they chant the words “Trump is cheating in the next election.” You cannot even trust the results of the 2020 election with Trump in it. Wow, now they’re already undermining the next election 9 months ahead of it. Only to save quid-pro-quo Joe.

Our elections are very frail if just the inclusion of Donald Trump can destroy them.

After all they don’t care about the amount of damage they do to the country. not at all. The only thing that matters is their political objectives. Come hell or high water….and it will.

Wicked this way comes

If Nancy Peloci uses Unconstitutional means to try to remove a president from office, then that is the same as the coup they have run for 3 years. It is not legal or legitimate.

That brings us right to treason, no matter how glamorous one tries to dress it up.

So just the fact that she tried to step in to further contaminate it by attempting to gain control over the Senate proces, is only more icing on the Unconstitutional cake.

And frankly, Madame Speaker, I’m sick of it! She obviously cares nothing about the Constitution and even less for the people of this country and our election process.

Last Word Against Impeachment

The speech not given. A parting shot.

Madam Speaker, I rise at this time to voice my opposition to this impeachment sham.

Irony is all around this sham. It is a dark irony.

I find great irony in the fact that the same body with the power to declare war was also given the power to impeach a sitting president, among its other solemn duties.

What if they use all those other powers designated to Congress the same way they are using this power to impeach? Rush to impeach. Fundraisers, storm the gates of the capitol. Impeachment rallies. “Impeach the MF-er!” What if the same hyper-partisanship was used in a rabid rush to war? Even for Democrats, this a new low.

Future voters, preserve our democracy, voting for children and posterity are their talking points. Nothing is further from the truth.

Do they tell their children in future generations that this was the day they stood up to overturn the election of the people? This was the day they had to act to subvert the will of the people. “We had to act.” This was the day the results of an election no longer mattered.

This was the opening salvo in the war on democracy.

You hear the same old tired Democrat platitudes “what is he hiding?”…”what is he afraid of?” Now it is time to ask them the same questions.

What are they afraid of…. what are they hiding? They are trying to hide this charade of a coup they’ve orchestrated and been engaged in since even before this president took his oath of office and assumed the office.

What they are afraid of is the will of the people. They keep on polling with the same results. Now they’ve just decided to go to war with democracy.

They are afraid the same president will be reelected again in 2020. This is only a partisan political hit job, like all the rest of their long drawn out plot, to either unseat the president or prevent him from getting reelected. So they’ve gone to war against democracy, again.

I find it ironic too that the organization founded in the aftermath of President Clinton’s impeachment screaming to “Move On” is the same group now organizing rallies lobbying the left to impeach this president. Isn’t that rich?

So Move On runs to the street organizing rallies with chants of “no one is above the law. The president is not above the law.” But what law; what law are they talking about?

Protecting democracy? They strategized this moment since the last presidential election to subvert democracy. Less than one year before the next election, they must take it out of the hands of the people to let them know Congress not the people will pick the president.

“We must act,” they say. They must act to prevent the president from using his power and getting reelected in 2020. They’ve moved up the date of the election to now.

And they trying to shroud this act of democratic defiance in an excuse that they are doing this for the people, to “protect democracy.” That they are doing it for national security? The only threat to our national security is this attempt to subvert the will of the people.

We all watched for years in the UK as countless lawmakers tried to tell people their votes didn’t matter. They do the same thing here.

But ask yourself, what are Democrats afraid of? What are they trying to hide? The answer is simple, they are afraid of we the people, us. They are hiding their entire anti-democratic agenda against the American people. They are hiding their coup and its fruition.

In fact, everything they have done is a part of the cover up for what Obama and our government did to interfere in the last election. Sure, they failed to prevent Trump from winning but they aren’t done. That cover up for what they did continues.

It is not about what did they know and when did they know it? They have known it all along. They were complicit in the biggest attack on our democracy in history, a bloodless coup. When? They started it from before he was even elected. They were so deep in it by election that even if they wanted to, they could not have stopped. It is a war against democracy. They planted the seeds, fertilized it, then weeded out anything that stood in their way of reaping the rewards of overthrowing the president. (by any means)

Hyper-politics and policy disagreements should not be the cause for impeachment.

But like its power to declare war, once used you cannot put that Genie back in the bottle. You can shout “we didn’t come here to impeach” from the roof of the Capitol. It doesn’t matter. You invoked it while feigning some Churchillian passion as you attempt to overturn an election. This is not what democracy looks like!

Democrats worry about foreign influence in elections. Say hello to your friend, Ukraine.

And so the Forgotten Man limps on still… in an all too real metaphor.

 

I yield back….

Slipshod Impeachment Phraseology

Phrases for slipshod impeachment echo through congress after weeks of impeachment inquiry. Then get repeated with stunning frequency

Democrats bandied about catch phrases in weeks of impeachment inquiry. Some are just cute and others even stupid. Here are a few of the classic gems or their paraphrases:

“We must save our democracy.”
“We must impeach the president to protect the 2020 election.”
“It’s about interference in our elections”
“We are defending the Constitution.”
“No one is above the law.” (what law?)
“This is not a rush to judgment, it is a rush to justice.”
“We must protect our national security and preserve our democracy.”
(a little late on that one)
We must impeach him for what he might do. We cannot take that chance.

But the cakemaker of them all is this one. First, adorn it with sober, somber, solemn, prayerful mood music. Then, self-righteously, they claim:

None of us came here to impeach the president.
“None of us came to Congress just to impeach this president.”

Wrong. Yes they did.

They all came there to impeach the president and that is what they are doing. Whatever reasons they thought or said they came to Congress for are in the past. Memo to Dems:

You are there now to impeach the president. So while you can claim that wasn’t your original intent, (even if it was true) you were hijacked once there into that agenda.

In fact, it is now your only objective. Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler have determined the most important priority for this congress and before next election is to impeach the president.

So those pitiful words “I didn’t come here to impeach the president” ring so hollow after we’ve all seen the impeachment road show. Rides available daily.

Even one congressman, Hank Johnson, said representatives should be willing to impeach the president even if it means losing their elections. Sacrifice themselves. He said he would gladly impeach the president if it cost him his seat, and so should everyone else.

Impeachment fever, once they have it they can never turn back.

(*Prof. Jonathan Turley referred to it as slipshod impeachment in his testimony.)

This Is Not Normal

This Is Not Normal

IG Horwitz testifies to Senate Judiciary Committee on the IG Report on Trump investigation and FISA abuse.

That should be the headline across the country. The Senate committee looked into the IG Report and discovered that this is not normal. It is anything but normal.

Yes people, normal is now gone. It has been replaced by what we have seen happen in 2016, then continuing 3 years in various forms. To some extent, right up until today.

Here and Now in Whateverland

In asking serious questions, one has to be prepared for the inevitable: people answering those questions armed with their own opinions like stilettos. If one is really interested in what people think, it could be a rewarding even educational exercise.

Recently, Charlie Daniels had a column laying out particular grievances on impeachment fever running wild, then asked a series of questions. That is always a good format. Asking questions can be a tool on a blog. It’s nice to care what others think.

However, what it really does is open the door for naysayers and critics to offer pungent rebukes from their lofty perches. That is what happened with Charlie’s Soap Box piece. Maybe no more critics than usual though a bit more descriptive than usual. One suggested he was now a former fan.

I’m sure Charlie was ready for that reaction when he posed the questions. The questions were important and consequential. But it showed there are enough people out there who will fully embrace any criticism of Trump, and who see — in their minds anyway — lots of reasons to impeach our 45th president.

But here we are with impeachers having their way. They were eager for this moment from the beginning. It could not come fast enough for them and now it is finally here.

Trump haters will jump at any chance to express their discontent with him. Even Christmas decorations have become a symbol of their disdain for the Trump family. And they don’t despise just him but the entire family. At one impeachment hearing, a Stanford professor made a rotten joke using Trump’s son Baron’s name. She later apologized only while demanding an apology from Trump.

Congress subpoenaed all Trump family financial documents from Deutsche Bank prompting Ginsburg to slap a stay on it until SCOTUS can hold a vote. Nothing seems off limits to these critics. Hopefully SCOTUS will provide clarity on the matter and for future presidents. Should Congress have unbridled power to impound any personal documents from a sitting president it wants? That can hardly be a good thing or precedent for the future. What about Barry Soetoro having all his personal records sealed? But that was not a problem for the Democrats. Plus, Trump documents have a habit of leaking.

That deep document dive brings the issue into focus. What do Democrats care about future precedents they are setting, both on impeachment and records? They don’t. So this is what I call the politics of here and now — the only thing they care about. As if the future will take care of itself regardless what they do today, with little or no effect on the future. But that is not the case. They don’t care. Nor do they really care what effect it has.

The politics of “here an now” determine now is everything, the future is of no concern. Whatever happens as a result is of no consequence and certainly will not matter later to them. Now is where they live, in hatred, but it is also the incubator for the future. Democrats and incubators don’t get along so well. If they can believe in aborting a baby in the 9th month, then they will do just about anything out of convenience for the moment.

Instead, they will try to shift blame and the argument back on Trump. But it is not him setting the future precedent here. Democrats are oblivious to our posterity and future. Rather than impeachment being caused by a scandal, impeachment has become the scandal. And now investigating corruption becomes an impeachable offense.

Subsequently, any defense of President Trump is then seen as incompetence, even legal malpractice, such as with Professor  Jonathan Turley delivering a defense against impeaching Trump.  He was the outlier to the tar and feather scholars.

Think about the other three witnesses. All tenured professors from Ivory Towered institutions calling on impeaching and removing a president at the drop of a hat.

“Slipshod impeachment” is the tonic, but what is the illness?

Shades of Impeachment Politics

When Nancy Pelosi took their spin-filled deceitful vote over the impeachment process, there were two standout Democrats who disagreed and voted against it.

(CNN) “Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Collin Peterson of Minnesota both voted “nay” on the historic resolution.”

Post Schiff Show, one Democrat came out to say she does not support impeachment. It was Michigan Rep Brenda Lawrence. She would prefer a censure of some kind.

Fox News reports:

“”We are so close to an election,” Lawrence said Sunday on a Michigan radio program, noting that Trump stands little chance of being convicted by the GOP-controlled Senate. “I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don’t see the value of taking him out of office. But I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable. It’s in violation of the oath of office of a president of the United States, and we have to be clear that you cannot use your power of the presidency to withhold funds to get a foreign country to investigate an American citizen for your own personal gain. There’s no way around that.”

Lawrence continued: “I want him censured. I want it on the record that the House of Representatives did their job and they told this president and any president coming behind him that this is unacceptable behavior and, under our Constitution, we will not allow it. … I am a Democrat, but I am an independent United States of America citizen.””

But that is just it, isn’t it? That demonstrates what is wrong with this whole process. If Democrats in the House majority found something objectionable, there are many ways to handle that disagreement. Censure is one. I don’t agree with it, yet it’s a possibility.

They could have done a basic resolution condemning what he did. Face it, they don’t like so much of what he does. A vote and resolution would still be on the record. They couldn’t do that or anything else. No. They had to reach for the ultimate: to impeach Trump.

They were set on doing that before he took office. They were determined to impeach him, or try, since he came into office. They were obsessed by it.

If Pelosi really cared about her legacy then she has to realize it goes up in flames with such a divisive move as impeachment. Especially when her majority did nothing else in the year. Nothing for the people, just impeach their president. And on the eve of an election.

Then send articles of impeachment, which they were determined to do, over to the Senate and airdrop the highly partisan maneuver right into the middle of a presidential election.

So Speaker Pelosi and 2020 will go down in the books as the year Democrats bet their entire legacy, and a presidential election, on impeachment. The two shall forever be joined – though both are about the same thing. It is pure election politics and about overturning the results of the last one. Democrats never looked so petty or radical as now.

And that shall be Democrats’ legacy, and Pelosi’s legacy as speaker.

Now Democrats are resolved even in their blue strongholds, knowing if Trump is not removed from office, to carry out their impeachment distraction anyway. They don’t care.

Happy Thanksgiving, America, enjoy that turkey… they are impeaching your president.

Lessons From Impeachment Class

What did we learn from the last thunderous day of impeachment hearings? For starters that you have to have some malicious offense committed by the president equaling high crimes and misdemeanors. But Democrats merely claiming to be offended by the president or what he does is not grounds for impeachment.

We learned that Democrats and their media arm have become so successful with their talking points that they get back fed into Deep State bureaucrats. Those same talking points can now ooze from witnesses in hearings to impeach the president.

Fiona Hill wasted no time rolling out those Democrat talking points in her prepared remarks and then later even brought in more to cover her testimony.

Her written testimony contained the canards that Ukraine was a conspiracy theory. She insisted one could only say Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Why is it so necessary to dismiss, deny and ignore Ukraine interference in 2016? I think we know why. Everything damaging to them must be labeled a conspiracy theory and denied.

Then she went for the Democrat talking point trifecta. Any mention of George Soros, or his powerful political influence is now an anti-Semitic attack. So it’s an easy way to cover up Soros’ influence by calling criticism or anyone who mentions Soros ant-Semitic.

I could not believe an academic of her caliber would be reduced to using cheap talking points of the radical left. Shut down your critics by ridicule.

Then she uses old anti-Russia tropes to shutdown criticism. That’s as good as Hillary and DNC: label any political opponents Russian agents.

Right on cue with that talking point, she asserted that some members of the Republican committee denied ANY Russian meddling in 2016. Schiff further repeated that denied “any” influence charge later. But then she is a master of hearsay, too.

The only good news seems to be that this was apparently Schiff’s last day of scheduled impeachment hearings. And he is unhappy the will of the people is not with him.

Devin Nunes summed it up in his closing. “Dems got caught” in “A carousel of accusations.”

Impeachment Ground Zero: narratives and lies

A cartoon needs to be drawn of today’s events, and the caption should read

“This is your government on politics.”

In the media, historian Jon Meacham on MSNBC certified that Republicans are a Jonestown Cult. Pelosi has called Trump an imposter. Media are far from finished on this day of revision and government radicalized by politics – made to MSNBC’s order.

Fiona Hill, another Dem star witness, posits how it must be impossible for two nations to interfere or meddle in our elections at the same time. So the Russian hoax theme is on full display. And the people that push it are again on the world stage.

Somewhere in the near background of Moscow, is a laughing Putin that Democrats are impeaching Trump over Ukraine. He couldn’t have written a better script.

Speaking of scripts and writers, Democrats’ lousy drama is bad enough but their screenwriting is even worse.

Defining Democracy Down

The left is on the fast track doing whatever they can to define democracy down. It’s interesting how it doesn’t matter that Trump is a duly elected president. But he has never been not under investigation. (sorry for the double negative)

Democrats really care nothing about the democracy of elections. All they care about is their political agenda, even when it means undermining democracy with a coup, or daily muddying up the definition of democracy.

They don’t care about the people’s will or our agenda, voiced and confirmed at the ballot box. The only thing that matters to Democrats is interrupting and overturning the last one.

The people can take a back seat to their demands. Never mind the USMCA trade deal. To hell with fixing real problems or sorely needed oversight. Out of control bureaucracy, intelligence, and abuse of power mean nothing to Democrats.

Sunday, Speaker Pelosi was virtually trying to chase Trump out of the White House, saying that “at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue,” She said President Trump was an “imposter.”

Remember that next time she lectures on the finer points of democracy, when she is assuring us of her Constitutional duty. She said:

“This week, we will hear from additional witnesses who will courageously expose the truth and defend our democracy.”

Defend democracy? Sadly, they nor anyone else can defend democracy from Pelosi. Who could? Her assault is relentless. Cancel our democracy. It’s the politics, stupid.

Theatrical Enigma: impeachment goes public

This impeachment is an exercise in performance art. It is theater of the absurd: with all the drama, casting, innuendo, stage signals, deception and illusions of reality.

Actually, I only wish it was a satire and then it would be a spectacular performance. You have the king’s white-robed judge ruling all ceremonies, functioning to dictate over and silence any mitigating evidence or questions.

There is no patience for truth and context but only the dramatic effects. The whistleblower who started it all shall not be discussed, contrary to the opening scene of outrage. He shall never be named.

We shall not speak of the origination of the script where it all began. The plot is a mystery, but do play along as lead characters develop endless possibilities out of thin air, on a moment’s notice. Pay no attention to leading questions meant to deceive the audience.

But the real irony, which becomes clear midway, is that by Act II you the audience are the real victims with no way out. Meanwhile, all along, other narratives are being developed behind the curtain out of sight of the defenseless audience — who only want it to end.

The “I” word that never could be mentioned under the last administration is at the center in every conversation about this one. However, the audience itself is the culprit, victim, villain and the number one target in the plot who must be dealt with.
