When things are good and the wind is at your back, it’s hard to tell who your real friends are. It’s when things get dicey and its ‘every man for himself’ that people show their true colors.
With an intro like that, you might think this piece will refer to who is and is not loyal to President Donald J. Trump… but you would be mistaken. It is referring to the Constitution itself.
Pelosi’s Impeachment process is not motivated by what is in the best interest of the country, or even the Constitution. It’s an attempt to destroy the President, personally — whose personal loathing for him she does not even pretend to hide — and the Make America Great Again movement he built from nothing into some 75 Million like-minded Americans.
The Status-Quo swamp helped deep-six the TEA Party movement that threatened the cozy arrangements they had made along the way, and they would gladly do the same again. The crisis sparked on January 6th, together with the Mass De-platforming of conservatives and orchestrated choking off of their funding streams, there is no longer room for neutrality.
Mitch McConnell and Liz Cheney have chosen to support impeachment.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News.
It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict.
One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump.
Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. –FoxNews
‘…and his movement’. You realize he means YOU, right?
Think back to all those times Trump told us the real reason the swamp strikes out against Trump — not because it hates HIM (until he came down that elevator, they loved him) — but because it hates us.
And here’s #3 in the GOP, Liz Cheney:
Republican opposition to impeaching President Donald Trump began crumbling at the party’s upper echelons on Tuesday as the No. 3 House GOP leader said she would vote to impeach Trump.
“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said in a statement that, while not unexpected, shook Congress as lawmakers prepared for a Wednesday House vote. With Democrats commanding that chamber, a vote impeaching Trump for an unprecedented second time seemed certain. —Baltimore Sun
A vote to impeach is to remove from office. News flash – he is already leaving office.
Lindsey Graham warned us in the Kavanaugh hearings exactly who these people are, and now we’re seeing it play out in real time. “Boy, y’all want power. God, I hope you never get it.”
This impeachment process doesn’t even accomplish what it claims to set out to do. It’s virtue signaling, and it is cheapening the entire Impeachment Process, leading us — inevitably — into a destabilizing political tit-for-tat cycle of vengeance and retalition.
But if he’s so convinced that it is important to put a marker down to show that he’s serious about calling out political threats to the Constitution, Michael Knowles has made an excellent point.
The Michael Knowles Proposal
Trump has not, at any point, called for any act of political violence. Nor has he given any direct support for the same. Kamala Harris, on the other hand…
As a sitting Senator — and soon-to-be Veep — Kamala has expressly condoned violent protesters, including helping fundraise bail for the violent offenders who launched attacks on (among other things) police and federal buildings and benefitting from the fact that the Antifa dot come website redirected to their campaign website.
Despite some 30 people being killed in the left-wing ‘mostly-peaceful’ riots over the summer, Harris said these protests would continue and that they should continue.
The Senate has the power to remove or to censure one of their own. Like the House, they too have a majority… for now.
If the politics of the day is running on a defacto might-makes-right policy, the only way to make their side pull back from these scorched-earth tactics is if they have to feel the sting of playing by their own rules.
If Mitch, and others, are willing to proceed with a Stalinist-style impeachment process where the votes for a conviction have been counted even before the first hearing has been called, surely the incoming administration needs to know that their party’s own tacit support of anarchist groups — including the defense of actual looting by some elected Democrats — will not be ignored.
But Mitch is a creature of the swamp. How quickly he forgets the rioters throwing bricks through the windows of his home, hoping he can just appease the cancel culture surely coming for him, too.
Does he really believe the left will ever forgive him for the role he played in delivering so many originalist judges to stand in their way?
If so, he’s wrong.
All he’s doing is alienating those of us on the right who were wondering if maybe, just maybe, this swamp critter had actually dug deep and discovered a spine.
Looks like he just answered that question for us.
