I have not been able to count the number of TV interviews, blogs, and radio interviews that have aired since Nancy Pelosi pocketed the House-passed Articles of Impeachment. I pointed out in a previous commentary before the vote was taken that she was going to sit on the Articles, and I, like all the other pundits, was only partially correct. In a recent radio interview, I was asked by the host, “Did I think the comments by Nancy were on the spur of the moment because of the declining support for impeachment and that she panicked?”
Her announcement to pocket the Articles was, I believe, not a spur of the moment decision, but rather very calculated and orchestrated decision by the Democratic leadership to decidedly change the constitution forever without a single vote for such action. Without question, the Democrats have been planning President Trump’s impeachment since before he was inaugurated. I have written many commentaries over the last three years about the Democratic disdain for the U.S. Constitution and their many attempts to change it to their way of thinking.
Keep in mind when Pandora was released from the box, there was no way to return her to her confinement and thus the world was forever changed. The Democrats have decided the best way to change the Constitution is to change the balance of power between the three branches of government. By pocketing the Articles of Impeachment, they have fundamentally changed the President of the United States from head of the government elected by the people to now as a prime minister, subject to decisions of the House, rather than the people.
According to the Democrats, the president will not be co-equal to the congress and the judiciary, but subject to a no-confidence vote of the House. Nancy has told the Senate what she wants in terms and conditions for the impeachment trial, should she want one to take place. The Democrats with their impeachment votes have attempted to change our government to a parliamentary form, and if allowed to stand, can clearly change how our nation is run and decisions are made.
If one party doesn’t like the budget, or foreign policy decisions, or the use of the military, they can call for the impeachment of the president, similar to a new election for a prime minister following a vote of no confidence. Take some time this holiday season to look back at all the statements made against President Trump by the Democrats over the past three years. You will be surprised at the number of times people have been speaking about a no-confidence vote against the president.
Nancy Pelosi took it upon herself to tell the Congress that she had decided, on her own, to secure control of the government. She did not ask the other 434 members of the House to vote on her government take-over. She just decided she was becoming a dictator and told the Senate and the president that things were now going to be according to Nancy Pelosi.
The founding fathers didn’t imagine that the Speaker of the House would be in
control of the government.
I don’t think we can ever go back to the way we were for 243 years. Our country is broken, and I don’t think it can be repaired. This impeachment of President Trump may be turned away, but in future, a political party may want to try it again, thinking since it almost happened in 2019, then perhaps we can make it happen again.
The Democrats have demonstrated a way of converting our system of government, and they have changed the conversation. I fear we will never be the same kind of nation. This is the worst Christmas in my life, for I fear I have lost my country. Perkins Twist, If we are going to save our nation, we will have to change the Constitution to make the impeachment process clearer, and by so doing, secure the future of our republic. The anti-American factions must pay a dire price for their actions. I want all the parties involved in this constitutional attack to lose their seats.
If elected officials do not follow their oath of office, “I, ’name’, do solemnly swear (or
affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me, God.” they should be expelled from the congress. Nancy, you are not in charge the Constitution. It is my hope we can make the Constitution last for another 243 years. I want the ideas expressed in the Constitution to be echoed again and again.
