Nothing Has Changed – for the Democrats – this is about Power!

Hmmm…so Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced an ‘official’ impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, but no one knows exactly what that means. To date there has been no House vote, no select committees, no apparent change from the status quo⏤this country has already been embroiled in impeachment inquiries for nearly three-years by the Democrats. But of course, Democrats have believed that President Trump has been in violation of the law since Election Day, if not before.

For months Pelosi resisted pressure bubbling up from the liberal base of her Democratic Party to begin impeachment hearings against President Trump. Despite her reluctance, under massive pressure from the far-left Socialist base of the Democrat Party, led by the Squad⏤a mob of radical-Socialists, Pelosi was forced to set in motion a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump on Tuesday afternoon.

If the Democrats truly believed that this President is in violation of the law, they could have started the formal impeachment process long ago. Instead, all we’ve seen so far are press conferences and hyped-up talk. Behind closed-doors in a meeting early Tuesday, Pelosi described to Democrats what would happen next⏤the instructions; the six House panels investigating Trump would compile evidence against him and share it with the House Judiciary Committee, which would then decide whether to recommend articles of impeachment to the full House.

The rapid move toward an impeachment process stems, of course, from the disclosure in recent days that Mr. Trump this summer repeatedly pressed the leader of a foreign country, President  Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, to investigate the activities of former Vice President Joe Biden. While serving as vice president, Mr. Biden urged Ukraine’s leaders to dismiss the country’s general prosecutor, who wasn’t seen as aggressive enough in rooting out corruption—but also may have been looking into a company in which Mr. Biden’s son held a board position. A Ukrainian official this year said he had no evidence of wrongdoing by Mr. Biden or his son Hunter Biden.

This all came to light a week and a half ago when a still to be identified whistleblower from inside the administration who was not privy to any evidence or information … ever, complained to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. His non-access was hearsay through second and third and sources, that suggested that President Trump encouraged the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son. It should also be noted that the whistleblower has a political bias towards a candidate who is a potential political opponent of President Trump. Read that as a Democrat.

Further, it should also be made known that the complaint (filed by the whistleblower) was not shared by the Trump administration with Congress because the Director of National Intelligence determined it not credible or did it meet the requirement and standards required to be deemed a whistleblower complaint.

By law, the President is not subject to Whistleblower complaints, let alone whether the whistleblower had knowledge of the President’s phone call. Nevertheless, the President has now shared the transcript and supporting material evidence of the call. This is serious and should scare the hell out of the Democrats even more.

At the same time, the Senate voted unanimously on Tuesday to request that the whistleblower complaint be turned over to the Senate Intelligence Committee. This is the responsible procedural manner in which to investigate accusations. Speaker Pelosi is ignoring this process with her blatantly partisan tactics. Democrats have long sought to weaken the president, appease their base and further divide the country through impeachment. The Democrats latest action demonstrates their willingness to blindly follow this obsession regardless of the facts. Despite an unprecedented act of transparency by President Trump in releasing the transcript of his call with a foreign leader, the Democrats nevertheless plunged headlong into their nonstop obsession with impeachment.

The Democrats assumptive claim that the President had urged a foreign leader to go after his main political foe certainly stoked anger among Democrats. But their anger spiked higher and faster on Monday with the further supposed disclosure that President Trump had delayed military aid to Ukraine just before he made his request. That created the inevitable impression that the President had withheld Congressionally appropriated funds to coerce a foreign leader in exchange for a political favor.

While Pelosi is likely to continue to serve as a modulator on the impeachment process, she better understand the looming implications the political damage that could stem from any process that seems to rush to judgment. They had better be aware that the first problem facing the Democrats is that they will need to build public support for impeachment if they plan to move ahead, for that support has been distinctly limited.

In fact, a poll by even the left-leaning Quinnipiac organization this summer found that 60% of American voters were opposed to beginning impeachment proceedings. Likewise, a similar Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll in July found about four in 10 Democratic voters favored moving to impeachment hearings, but there was considerable skepticism among independents and little support among Republicans.

In the meantime, though, Democrats should heed their decision with considerable concern and discretion. They can be assured that President Trump will use the impeachment drama to stoke the extensive considerable energy he already enjoys within his core-base of supporters. The President will portray the impeachment process as proof of his charge that he is opposed at every turn within what he likes to call the Washington swamp, and that his opponents are trying to bring him down to stop him from continuing to take down the political establishment and the Deep State.

Mr. Trump likes to portray himself as an abused victim of that establishment, so impeachment actually plays directly into his political narrative. Inevitably, that impeachment dynamic now also will play directly into the coming 2020 presidential campaign, further polarizing the bases of the two parties—particularly if the Democratic presidential nominee is Mr. Biden, who stands at the center of the president’s actions on Ukraine. Further, rest assured, House Republicans will demand that any attempt at an impeachment inquiry into the President also include an investigation into what Joe Biden and his son did in Ukraine. This will be the Democrats and Biden’s Achilles heel and a line of inquiry Democrats will find difficult to block.

And of course there’s another math problem that the Democrats face⏤the fact that the Senate is firmly controlled by Republicans, who enjoy a 53-to-47 seat advantage in the chamber. The Constitution requires a two-thirds majority of the Senate to vote to convict—and expel from office—a president who has been impeached by the House, and it seems wildly implausible that a sufficient number of Republican senators would abandon the president. Then there’s the yet another issue, that of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ necessary to support the establishment of impeachment hears. Question? Name them?

The Democrats had better understand that the political risks have not gone away. Democrats could walk into the kind of trap Republicans fell into when they took on Mr. Clinton: the ability to impeach in the House, a lack of votes in the Senate to drive out the president, and an angry public that saw the impeachment as an overreach and a distraction.

Despite nearly three-years of investigation, zero evidence of any wrongdoing, and the majority of Americans in opposition to impeachment, the Democrats and their radical-left, with the help of the lunatic mainstream media, are doubling down on their impeachment efforts.

They simply can’t accept that President Trump won the 2016 election and after countless attempts to bring him down, they are finally resorting to impeachment. And did I fail to mention⏤for their impeachment effort, they still need ‘a floor vote,’ which have continued to fail every time they’ve tried. Just like they manufactured the Russia Hoax, the left is manufacturing another conspiracy to remove the President.

Likewise, let not be stupid, understand another reason the Democrats are going to raise an inquiry on impeachment is to try to take control of the news-cycle between now and Election Day 2020 away from William Barr and his Justice Department’s FISA Report, Attorney John Durham’s indictments and convictions potentially of McCabe, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, and likely others. The Democrats are in a bad place on this! That said, get ready, the Democrats are steadfast and prepared to put this country through hell yet again, for absolutely no legitimate reason…meaning, they could not give a shit about America!

We are heading full-speed towards an economic meltdown. A recession even. We have no budget for fiscal year 2022, and do not expect one to come anytime soon. The federal government is likely headed towards a shutdown here in the next three weeks. Have you tried shopping lately? Notice how the shelves are much less stocked than usual?

Hydrocarbon Energy is the ‘Gift That Keeps On Giving’

The Left has this idea of better times before hydrocarbon energy. It is a ridiculous and dangerous fantasy. The number one tool of a doctor in the civil war was a saw. The number one tool of a dentist at that time was a pair of pliers. Our view of nature is distorted because of the comfort afforded us by fossil fuels. If we could live the life of the typical person of 1800 for only a week, virtually all of us would want to get back to the here and now as soon as possible…

First, They Came for the Trump Supporters, and I Did Not Speak Out…

As wishing death on anyone who disagrees with you becomes the “new normal,” the next new normal is violence. I have seen media references to “rounding up” anti-vaxers, Trump supporters, and anti-illegal immigration activists. From rounding them up to eventually killing them is a slippery slope. Just study the history of Germany in the 1930s. At the bottom of the slippery slope, we are at Dachau…

You may recall that David slew the giant. In the end, my reputation means nothing. What counts most is integrity. “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

Morocco and the Death of its Muslim Brotherhood

The peoples of Egypt, Tunisia, and now Morocco have declared publicly and unambiguously their contempt and refusal to have Sharia imposed upon them.

It is No Great Mystery, SARS-CoV-2 Origin is the Wuhan Lab – 3rd Yan Report

To mislead the world, CCP manipulated scientific campaigns (including scientists, doctors, top medical journals like Lancet or Nature) to push propaganda.

Biden set up America for disaster. I can’t even suppose how many years of coming terrorist attacks, internal conflicts, and a return to tribalism for self-defense we’ll face. Make no mistake, we’re in for it and if we continue to trust the Democrat (Marxists) Party to do what’s right, instead of destroying them completely, then we must readjust the parameters of our thinking and prepare for the worst…

Who Is Really At the Helm in the White House?

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda.

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?
