THE TRIAL WAS RIGGED

February 12, 2020

Even now, a week beyond the impeachment trial of Donald John Trump, there is ongoing banter about how he was “Impeached Forever”. The impeachment had the affect of ending a losing argument with “You’re a Racist”. It was false, and though the vile and viscous Democrats of the House did manage to muddle their way through and reach a predetermined and patently partisan consensus vote on loosely written Articles of Impeachment, they continue to try wiping the egg from their faces forever creviced with anger.

Crazy Mazie Hirono of Hawaii stated on CNN that President Trump was not acquitted of the Articles of Impeachment. “He wasn’t acquitted; it was a rigged trial”, she said.

Doubling down on stupid, she prattled on, “You don’t get acquitted when you don’t even get to call witnesses or relevant witnesses or have the documents because the president stonewalled all efforts on the part of the House to get the information they requested.”

It’s as if the Democrats, in their never ending attempts to destroy Donald Trump and all future presidencies, are so blinded with hatred they cannot even see their own reflections in a mirror. If it was a rigged trial it was most certainly a rigged indictment. The president’s attorneys followed the law when asking the courts for confirmation of need and appropriateness of the requested documents. It was his only available defense because he was not allowed representation during the House hearings. He was not allowed any rebuttal witnesses and, of those witnesses called by the prosecuting body, none had direct knowledge of any wrong doing. What was presented was all hearsay or secondary water cooler repetition.

Each and every witness, with the exception of only one, was a confirmed Never-Trumper and/or a diplomat who felt they were in charge of foreign policy rather than the Chief Executive. The one honest and knowledgeable voice was legal scholar and law professor, Jonathan Turley. In his opening statement, Turley offered that he is not a Trump supporter and, in fact, had voted against him. He shocked the panel when he gave honest historic testimony regarding the dangers of impeachment under the prescribed conditions and damage it would cause to future presidencies and to the Constitution. They denied and disregarded his testimony.

When questioned directly by Republican members, all witnesses agreed they were aware of no crimes committed by, or on behalf of, the president. Other than Turley’s, the “testimonies” included mind-reading and personal interpretations illustrating bias of what was said or what actually occurred.

So, if the Senate trial of Donald John Trump was “rigged” as declared by the Honorable Ms. Hirono, the basis for the Articles brought forth to the Senate were certainly flawed and essentially rigged by the proceedings within the House.

Let us be clear. The Impeachment of President Trump had nothing to do with “High Crimes or Misdemeanors” as described in the Constitution or abuse of power or obstruction of Congress. It was all about anger and frustration. The Democrat’s only position of power is having a majority in the House of Representatives at the present and they chose to abuse that position. Their anger is now deep seated and the frustration over the election loss of 2016 combined with the gaining of congressional seats in 2018 should not be a basis for destroying our nation.

These are the very angry Democrats seeking the next presidency. It is unimaginable how much destruction might be caused with such a resentful and vindictive figure in the White House.

IT’S BEYOND POLITICS

February 7, 2020

Politics has always been an adversarial process. It was meant to be. The reason for the three branches of government is to check, recheck and balance the governors of our country. However, the business of politics was never conceived to become so viscous and hateful.

With their hatred for the non-conforming, undiplomatic and forthright president, the Democrats have turned politics, not only in Washington D.C., but throughout the country into a blood sport. They have encouraged Antifa to riot by standing by and allowing the members to assault non-members (actually drawing blood and injuring upstanding citizens) with impunity.

They drew upon ambiguous and undefined language to issue two Articles of Impeachment which were voted on and passed by partisan vote. They have upended the state of politics for coming presidents forever. To identify a president’s thoughts as criminal or misdemeanors of impeachable capacity is very dangerous to the character of government and the nation.

Nancy Pelosi probably best described the Democrat strategy in 2017, <link>

This is not the first time a ranking member or leader in the Democrat controlled House or Senate has foregone the rules of normalcy to achieve an underhanded victory. Harry Reid is a testament to that. He introduced the “nuclear option” to the Senate to block filibuster and discussion of controversial presidential nominees with the exception of Supreme Court nominees. In doing so, he eternally altered voting process of the Senate. He won that round, but the tolerant, understanding and accepting Democrats now cry foul when the Republican majority uses that very move.

Now we have a president who has been “impeached forever” in the Speaker’s words. They have impeached President Trump not for cause, but because. In doing so, they, the majority in the House (this time it’s Democrats) have changed the landscape for the most important action the body can take.

There is no known reason for the abject hatred of President Trump other than the fact that he is President Trump. He defeated the predesignated “Queen of the White House” and that seems to be enough for the Democrats to continue attacking him and obstructing his presidency.

I did not vote for Trump in 2016. I didn’t and don’t agree with much of his direct rhetoric, yet I cannot fault him for his forthrightness and openness. There is no question about his thinking because he shares it loudly and often. This is very unlike any previous politician. But he is not a politician and is not beholden to various lobbying groups or even the pressure of his own party. Those are among the various reasons why he is disliked in Washington. He cannot be influenced with fame or fortune…he had them both before he decided to run for office and will forever be known and wealthy without compromising his integrity, such as it is.

Despite his lack of protocol but given the malicious and nefarious behavior of the Democrats over the past 3+ years, there is no way I will vote to install another. Regardless of the policies professed, I will not vote for a Democrat running for local, county, state and certainly not federal office. If that means voting to re-elect President Trump, I will.

DEMOCRATS NEVER LOSE

February 3, 2020

In their own minds, Democrats never lose. The political faction of liberals and progressives are known as Democrats and they refuse to accept any loss. Thus, they never lose.

A quick look at some recent history of elections tells the story.

Mr. Hanging Chad cannot be forgotten. In 2000, Al Gore lost the State of Florida and it’s 25 electoral votes giving George W. Bush a win with 271 electoral votes to Gore’s 266. After weeks of partisan bickering and multiple recounts by a Democrat controlled elections commission, Bush was declared the winner. Gore claimed to have been cheated out of the presidency and George W. Bush was an illegitimate president.

Vindictively, almost all the “W” keys were removed from White House computers prior to Bush’s inauguration.

To this day, Hillary Clinton tours the countryside telling anyone who will listen how she won the presidential election of 2016. She claims that because she received a greater percentage of the popular vote (2.86 million votes), she is by default the president, yet was denied the White House simply because she is female. Electoral College be damned despite the assurances the Founding Fathers gave to the people of rural areas that their vote is as worthy as those amassed in the cities.

Stacey Abrams of Georgia, on the other hand, refuses to accept the popular vote count of her state and brags that she is the rightful heir to the governor’s mansion. Though the election, deemed fair and lawful was held in 2018, Ms. Abrams refuses to concede the loss to this day.

With a deficit of more than 50,000 votes, Stacey cited voter suppression, and black voters in particular because the voter roles had been recently purged of people no longer allowed to vote in GA, in particular dead people. The lawsuit she filed was found to be without substantiation. In her own words, “I have no empirical evidence that I would have achieved a higher number of votes. However, I have sufficient and I think legally sufficient doubt about the process to say that it was not a fair election.”

With the adoption of the Articles of Impeachment, Nancy had to hush (almost threateningly) the Democrats who became giddy when they forgot it was a solemn and somber day that they had to impeach a sitting president. However, she later stated that the president would not be acquitted because it is impossible to hold a trial in which there are no new witnesses. This is a win-win for Democrats. The president will, in her words, be “impeached forever” by the House, but cannot be legitimately acquitted by the Senate.

When confronted with facts or reason contrary to their argument, liberals will always win. They do it by yelling “you’re a racist” or “you’re a bigot” or “you’re a homophobe” (transphobe where applicable) or some such thing and walking away. It is then up to the reasoned individual to disprove the negative allegation. Always a win for liberals!
