No Impeachment, Let
the American People Decide

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 12/12/2019 4:42:45 AM

The Democrats have filed Articles of Impeachment. No one is surprised, because impeachment has been the goal for the radical Left and others who dislike the president since before his election. Impeachment of a president is a solemn undertaking. It will inevitably, as Alexander Hamilton noted in Federalist No. 65, veer toward political factions. Yet it is important that our Founders intentionally did not embrace “recalls” or “votes of no confidence.” Rather, our system demands from Congress evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors and contemplates a level of behavior commensurate with the chaos inflicted on the republic by potential removal of a president.

The democrats will not give up on impeachment even though it will most likely fail in the Senate. They want to tarnish the President’s name and put him on par with Clinton who actually lied under oath. Nevertheless, they will knowingly impeach an innocent man simply because he won the election in 2016. The support they are receiving from the never Trumpers on the right is for the same reasons. They hate Trump and know he is more than willing to fight against the status quo of endemic corruption which has been benefited both parties for decades. Despite all the attacks, the American people stand behind this President because of his record of doing what he promised and his willingness to fight the Deep State even though it has cost him so much. Never before have we had someone so committed to this country and its people and that is not lost on the average man and woman on the street. However, the democrats are now moving to interfere in the presidential election in 2020. They know the President’s favorable poll numbers and are ready to do whatever is necessary to prevent his re-election. What they cannot do is control the American people. Therefore, this is our election to win or lose. We must show up in massive numbers never seen before to not only re-elect this President but to send a clear and resounding message rejecting the democrat party. We must hold them accountable for what they have done to this country for the last three years. It is our duty to be the judge, jury and executioner of this vile party and send them packing.

"It’s legally debatable" Meaning, there is no clear legal definition. Should political people be shielded from illegal activities in foreign countries? The President should not be allowed to investigate such behaviors because they are political opposition? That is absurd. Yet dems are basing their impeachment on such an uncertain foundation. "I also do not see evidence sufficient to impeach a president of the United States" There is NO evidence of anything beyond to those who hate Trump and would do ANYTHING to get rid of him. These petty vendettas diminish the accusers more than Trump.

POTUS is a master of the media, and the libertarded Dems have yet to figure this out. Have you noticed how POTUS brings up the investigations/impeachment at the rallies and yet stops short of telling the pumped up crowds what HE is going to do about it? He's subliminally placing this responsibility on the voters' shoulders to decide and they're rallying to his defense. I for one do NOT think this "vote" in the House is going to go very well, if at all. Watch for some "crisis" to delay the vote and eventually be dropped altogether.

This is a "defense"? Not much of one, mostly the same rehashed, and none of it matters. Deny it or not, impeachment is a political not criminal matter. It's an accusation, not a conviction. The Dems are making a political calculation that is bound to explode in their faces if impeachment is voted out of the House and sent to the Senate. And if that happens, keep an eye on Mitch.

This article is just a re-hash of the concept that Trump is allowed to be POTUS and the House is not allowed to micro-manage him. No kidding! After everything they have thrown at Trump over the last three years, it comes down to "abuse of power" (When? Where? What date? What event?) and "obstruction of Congress" (How? Asking a Federal court if he's allowed to call Executive Privilege is now obstructing justice? Trump was seeking justice!). Basically, every President since Washington could be brought up on similar phony charges --- especially Obama over DACA, Fast & Furious, etc. . Only the current Demo-rats hated of 63 million people and their duly elected POTUS has brought us here! Note to all L-Dotters reading these lines right now: If you live in a congressional district represented by a Democrat, you have my deepest sympathy, however, you MUST call his/her office today! Immediately. Tell them they will pay for what they are doing. I give thanks that my Congressman is Lee Zeldin.

I wish that someone would poll the 60 plus million Trump voters to find out if they want a trial. I would bet most of Trump's voters, and those who will vote for him in 2020 for the first time, would want a trial so we can watch the President state his own case. I like what Glenn Beck has to say about the whole impeachment mess. He is saying - have a trial - let's finally expose the swamp for the good of the country. Rush is suggesting that "the Republicans" should get it over with. No trial. But I think Trump's voters would more than likely side with Glenn than "the Republicans".

After he was acquitted in a major fraud trial, former Labor Secretary Ray Donovan asked, “Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?” The trial was ruinous for Donovan, personally and financially, and the question was a fair one. Donovan, however, at least received a trial. Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has never been given a fair hearing, let alone a trial, to clear his name. As the two political parties spin the results of a report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, one matter remains unaddressed. Someone needs to apologize to Page.

The letter, sent to the DNC Saturday afternoon, is signed by Booker, Castro and all seven presidential candidates who have already qualified for the December debate. It urges the committee to alter its debate qualifications for the January and February debates in a way that would allow Booker and Castro and potentially several other candidates to appear.

Ever since Watergate and the fall of Richard Nixon, a not-so-secret appeal of journalism has been the possibility that you, too, could bring down a president. Get a press pass and, presto, you’re another Woodward and Bernstein. Donald Trump just spoiled the fantasy. If, as expected, the Democrats’ impeachment dies a quick death in the Senate, it’s not just Speaker Nancy Pelosi who will have been thwarted. Presidential scalp-hunting by a biased media will be another Washington game disrupted by Trump.

Imagine California being “too close to call” for Donald Trump vs. his Democratic opponent on election night in November of 2020. That, in essence, is what happened in the United Kingdom Thursday night with an enormous, and historic, win for Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party. This movement of the political tectonic plates will surely cause a tsunami of reaction across the pond, here in the U.S., as well around the world. Since the era of Margaret Thatcher the U.K hasn’t seen such a surge toward the Conservative Party and this is such a large win that it will hold for at least a generation to come.

There's only one major trophy remaining for Joe Burrow to lift up this college football season. The LSU quarterback on Saturday won the Heisman Trophy, given to the most outstanding player in college football. He beat out fellow quarterbacks Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma) and Justin Fields (Ohio State) and defensive end Chase Young (Ohio State) to hoist the 85th edition of the award at the PlayStation Theater in New York City. Burrow finished with the largest margin of victory in Heisman history, as 1,846 points separated him from second-place Hurts. He also received a record 90.7% of all the first-place votes available and was named on 95.5% of ballots, another record.
Democrats’ Impeachment and

Democrats crying “impeachment” are the boy who cried “wolf.” Like the boy in the fable, they will find they have worn out the cry. And like the boy, they will be the ones to suffer for having done so. In the story, a shepherd boy repeatedly excites the townsfolk by falsely claiming he has seen a wolf. Eventually, the exasperated townspeople come to ignore his cries. Like the boy, Democrats have been crying for impeachment for every perceived Trump offense — many of which exist only in their own imagination. Originally centering on Russia, failure there drove them to Ukraine.

Marlena Rochelle Neely, 30, told authorities she was homeless and had been asking people for $5. Neely said she would shatter a window every time they failed to give her money because she was tired of people not helping her out, the probable cause affidavit stated, according to The Oregonian. Neely pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal mischief and was ordered to pay about $10,500 in restitution, in addition to the jail time.

Some recent news stories verge on the bizarre: the House Democrats’ futile fuss over impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s acceptance of President Trump’s US-Canada-Mexico trade treaty. But they’re not as bizarre, or possibly as consequential, as unanticipated developments in the Democrats’ presidential nomination contest. Consider the role of money, which Democrats are always saying plays too big a role in politics. This year, it plainly isn’t. Their two billionaire late entrants, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg, aren’t running away with the contest. Steyer is at 1.7% in the RealClearPolitics average, and Bloomberg’s 5.5% surely owes as much to his formidable three terms as New York mayor

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”

The Trump administration is preparing to move the public lands management bureau out of Washington, DC to Colorado. It makes perfect sense because the vast majority of public lands are out west.

Some employees are not happy about this and are quitting rather than moving to Colorado.
