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….
