Today, the Impeachment Travesty continues. The Democrats are driven by a combination of hatred and desperation, both grounded in Trump Derangement Syndrome, and as a consequence, they careen toward a hyper-partisan impeachment. They tell us that they really, really care about Democracy, the constitution, political precedent and the like, but in reality, they care nothing for those things. If they did, they wouldn't set a horrendously bad precedent that will now allow an opposition political party to attempt to remove a first term president because they don't like the results of an election. Victory Davis Hansen summarizes:
From now on, impeachment can be used against any first-term president with a record of success. It will be used solely as a political strategy by the opposition party that controls the House to weaken a president’s reelection chances. That’s the Democratic Party’s legacy and Democrats will live to rue it.
In the three years since the 2016 election, the Democrats have attempted everything to destroy Donald Trump. Their level of political viciousness has been shocking, even by beltway standards.

Lead by a cabal of inveterate liars and smarmy political operators, the Dems keep trying and failing to make the case that Trump should be removed from office by their fiat, not by a vote of the people. Their Keystone Cops effort indicates the new Democratic party cares little for the people. In fact, it seems that they despise the very voters who might allow them to recapture the presidency. After all, according to the new Dems, we're a country of racists—peppered with a collection of misogynists and other 'deplorables.' We're greedy, we don't pay enough taxes, we demand personal freedom (the horror!), and we can't seen to bend to the supreme power of the deep state. We reject the abject idiocy of political correctness run amuck and no longer worship at the alter of blue policies that have failed badly in cities and states where they have been implemented.

So ... bring on impeachment.

I can only hope that the American people recognize this truly despicable attempt to negate their vote and that payback will be the result. The behavior of the democrats deserves a strong response, and the best response is their defeat in 2020.


It's not at all unusual for the editors of The New York Times to add to the level of idiocy associated with the Democrats' impeachment circus, but today just might take the cake. The editors of America's "paper of record" (LOL) are upset that the Trump administration won't dignify the Dem kangaroo court in the House with participation. After all, the Dems need people to think that they're all about the serious business of governance, even-handedness, and the 'rule of law." They. Are Not. They are all about political viciousness and truly do want to negate an election. Anyhow, the NYT editors ask: "Does Trump Think Our Constitutional Processes Are Beneath Him?"

The august group of NYT opinion leaders writes:
President Trump has now made obvious his contempt for the notion that Congress has any authority to hold him accountable. He has signaled that he won’t mount any defense to impeachment charges in the House over his scheming in Ukraine, insisting it is somehow beneath him to participate in a constitutional process.
Yeah ... seems to be that contempt is exactly the right attitude, given that the "charges" are trumped up, the constitutional questions are non-existent, and the notion that an elected president cannot put conditions of foreign aid is ridiculous, or cannot ask for an investigation into corruption that involves an ex-VP of the United States, and most important, that running for office somehow inoculates that same ex-VP from an culpability for influence pedaling.

The NYT editors sit in their New York City offices, insulated from the masses they purport to understand, and clutch their collective pearls as they talk about "President Trump’s rejection of Congress’s independent authority." What this group of clueless elites don't seem to recognize is that there are tens of millions of average citizens who reject congress' impeachment actions. Those tens of millions will be heard in less than a year.


It's truly comical to watch the Dems struggle for an Impeachment meme (in the old fashioned sense of the word) that will resonate with their left-wing base and at the same time find acceptance through the broader electorate. First it was "Russian collusion," then "obstruction" of a crime that didn't happen, then "quid pro quo," then "bribery," and now, an attempt to "ensure the integrity of the 2020 election."

Byron York writes:
Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler tried to explain why Democrats are racing to finish their work. The reason, Nadler said, is that if the president is not removed from office immediately, he will cheat in the next election.

"The integrity of our next election is at stake," Nadler said. "Nothing could be more urgent." Impeachment is so pressing, Nadler said, because the president represents "a continuing risk to the country."

On Sunday, Nadler appeared on NBC's Meet the Press. He argued that impeachment is a "matter of urgency" because "we have to make sure that the next election is conducted with integrity and without foreign interference."

"The president, based on his past performance, will do everything he can to make it not a fair election, and that is part of what gives us the urgency to proceed with this impeachment," Nadler said.

In other words, this is a preemptive impeachment.
The true irony of all of this is that EVERYTHING that the Dems accuse Trump of doing (despite the fact that no hard evidence exists to support their claims) the Democrats actually did. They colluded with the Russians to create the phony Steele dossier; they then obstructed an investigation into a deep state conspiracy to sabotage Trump's candidacy and presidency; in the Obama years they offered Iran both a quid pro quo and bribes to create the awful Iran Deal, and their is clear and compelling evidence that the Clinton campaign and the DNC, along with other deep state operators, worked to destroy the integrity of the 2016 elections.

And now, they will offer up absurd and empty articles of impeachment. They should pay a price for all of this. They do NOT deserve to lead.
