Impeachment is a Problem

For only the forth time in United States history our President is subject of an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives. The charges against President Donald J. Trump, according to Democrats, is that he used his office to ask the President of Ukraine to investigate his political opponent former Vice-President Joe Biden, who remains the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination. Democrats claim the President withheld military aide to Ukraine, which had been approved by Congress, until Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky publicly announced the investigation of Biden, and Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings where Biden’s son Hunter Biden served as a highly paid member of the Board of Directors.

The number of things WRONG with the Democrats action in this matter are numerous. But let’s just list a few.

1. Article II of the US Constitution enunciates the powers of the President. It gives the President sole determinative power over foreign policy, and communications with foreign Ambassadors and Representatives. It also gives him sole power over commanding our military. Like it or not the July 25th phone call between Zelensky and Trump was part of the operation of foreign policy for which Trump is exclusively in charge.

2. Democrats can’t even articulate what crime(s) or to quote the Constitution, high crimes or misdemeanors, Trump committed. The closest thing you will hear to an actual claim of criminal conduct is “Abuse of Power”. But, as we have already established, since Trump has sole authority in the practice of foreign relations how he talks with foreign leaders and what he says is largely whatever he wants; within the bounds of reality. Not liking what he said or how he said it does not rise to the level of criminal conduct.

3. The money was delivered. Though Trump admits putting a hold on the military aide to Ukraine, the money was ultimately delivered. And, it was delivered before such time as Democrats made the world aware of this whole situation.

4. The investigation didn’t take place. The transcript from the July 25th phone call indicates that amongst other things Trump did ask Zelensky to “look into” the Burisma corruption situation. So, there is no arguing that Trump wanted the connection to Biden investigated. But, ultimately Zelensky ignored the request. And the money was still delivered.

5. The Biden’s CLEARLY did something wrong, if not illegal. Newly released emails show that Ukrainian officials sought a meeting with the Obama Administration using the fact that Hunter Biden was on the Burisma Board as leverage to gain such a meeting. Joe Biden famously brags about the fact that he ordered Ukraine to fire a Prosecutor who was investigating Burisma for corruption. At best Ukraine and Burisma specifically used Hunter Biden to gain favor with the Vice-President and the Obama Administration. THIS IS PERFECTLY CLEAR. At worst, both the Biden’s enriched themselves in exchange for using’s Joe Biden’s considerable influence and access to gain money and favors from the United States. Such corruption is illegal and possibly treasonous. On January 20, 2017 Donald Trump was sworn in as President and with his hand on the Bible promised to the best of his Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. By seeking foreign assistance in investigating corrupt and possibly treasonous activity by a past Vice-President and someone seeking the Presidency, Trump was certainly abiding by that oath.

I’m not naive enough to believe Trump wasn’t happy to investigate and smear his primary Presidential opponent. But that’s incidental to a legitimate investigation.

6. Trump will not be removed from office. Upon being impeached by the House, The Constitution requires that a trial for removal from office be held in the Senate, and that removal can only take place when 2/3 (or 67) Senators vote for the President’s removal. For that to happen 20 Republican Senators would have to join ALL 47 Democratic Senators in voting for removal. There is absolutely no indication that Democrats can get 20 Republicans to go along with such a vote.

The impeachment inquiry is purely political. It’s destructive to the country. It prevents other important matters from being discussed, and fixed.

Democrats have been boasting that they would impeach this President since the day he won election, before taking office. They have been pursuing it ever since. Now only 12 months before the next Presidential election they were forced to placate their zealous base and do it now or never.

On the good news side, upon impeaching and failing to remove President Trump from office I think his chances for re-election are pretty good; and I think the likelihood of Democrats trying this again in Trump’s 2nd term are slim.

But then again, Democrats have proven that they are simply crazy. So they might.

Democrats Perpetrating Presidential Hoax’s is Nothing New.

We’re placing this video from the January 2012 Republican Presidential debate here for you to watch to be reminded that Democrats perpetrating a hoax on the American people in Presidential election years is nothing new.

In this clip you see former Bill Clinton staffer, ABC News corespondent George Stephanopoulos grill eventual Republican nominee Mitt Romney about the Constitutionality of birth control. In watching the video it should be obvious Romney’s utter confusion as to why the question was being asked. You also see Stephanopoulos refusing to let Romney get away from the question without the ardent Democrat extracting from Romney an admission that the right-to-privacy, as determined by the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade abortion decision should be overturned.

Stephanopoulos was on a mission. And only in viewing that which followed in the national press does it become clear what his mission was.

It should be noted that not at that time or since has there ever been an effort by Republicans or anyone else to take away a woman’s right to contraception medicines or devices. Which explains why Romney was so stumped by the question and by Stephanopoulos’ ardent pursuit of an answer.

What this question spawned was the Democrats claim of a “War on Women”, which became the overriding theme of President Obama’s campaign against Romney in general and Republicans specifically. It was a lie. It was never true that Republicans were waging a war on women. But the effects of the campaign undoubtedly turned many female voters into Romney haters and helped secure four more years in the White House for a Democratic President that had done very little to deserve re-election.

Fast forward seven years to 2019. At the dawning of the 2020 Presidential campaign Democrats were in high gear touting the alleged conspiracy President Trump and his campaign had partaken in with Russia to win the 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton. To listen to Democrats and the mainstream media (MSM) Trump’s impeachment was inevitable. He was treasonous, they claimed. Then the Mueller report came out and some air was let out of their balloon. The Mueller report completely exonerated Trump and his campaign on any claim of Russian collusion and said insufficient evidence existed to charge obstruction of justice for a crime it said never took place.

What remaining air was left in their collusion/impeachment balloon disappeared entirely when the report’s author Robert Mueller appeared before Congress and testified in such a way as to make clear he had little hands on involvement in his own report. Subsequently, it became clear that the report exonerating Trump and his staff was put together by Mueller’s investigative staff which was assembled almost entirely of Democratic partisans. And still, they couldn’t pin anything on Trump.

So, the collusion conspiracy lie died suddenly. Its death being fully complete when during the Democratic Presidential debates on CNN not a single moderator asked, and not a single candidate spoke of the Russian allegations against Trump.

So, what’s dominating the news now? Trump is a racist! He’s not only a racist, he’s a white supremacist encouraging white supremacy groups all over the country. The claim is so pervasive that Trump is even being blamed for mass shootings that occurred over this past weekend. The fact is that mass shootings, mental illness and sometimes the hatred that triggers them is an American phenomena dating back decades before Trump ever entered the public eye.

It’s time to make the Democrats pay for the lies that they perpetrate. Though Trump is guilty of incendiary language at times; and though he’s an egotist and a blow-hard his actions as President and long before prove decisively that he is not a racist or white supremacist.

It’s my fervent prayer that the lemmings who vote Democratic election after election will finally see that the party of the KKK and of Jim Crowe and of Socialism is a party hell-bent on power and control and that merely lying about a person’s character is but a small but necessary step in achieving their ultimate goals.
