Where Are the 'High Crimes'?

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 12/13/2019 3:33:56 AM

"Quid pro quo" was the accusatory Latin phrase most often used to describe President Donald Trump's July 25 phone call asking for a "favor" from the president of Ukraine. New Year's prediction: The Roman poet Horace's Latin depiction: "Parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus" -- "The mountains went into labor, and brought forth a mouse" -- will be used to describe the articles of impeachment drawn up by Nancy Pelosi's House. Article II is titled "Obstruction of Congress." What does it allege? That Trump "directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives pursuant to its 'sole power of Impeachment.'" Undeniably, there is truth here.

The real and only crime here is defeating Hillary fair and square in 2016. While Pelosi and other leaders keep to the script by shedding crocodile tears about rule of law and no one being above it etc. some 'Rats such as the Crazy Maxine have let the cat out of the bag by saying impeachment has no rules and procedures. Whatever the whim of a thin majority in one chamber of the legislature dictates are the rules of the road. This is precisely what the Founding Fathers specifically wanted to avoid in the premature removal of an elected President.

The High Crimes are high up on the bodies of the Dems. It is their noses which have been violated, by being put out of joint. The Dims believe in Democracy. We live in a Republic. Trump was not elected by a majority. He was elected by the Electoral College. And he is not subject to the House, as he would be in a parliament. Orange Man Bad. Impeach!

Shall we go back to the previous administration and take a look at all of people who defied subpoenas? One of them wrote an insane column in the Washington Post yesterday saying that Barr is unfit to be AG.

The "high crime" in the Democrats' minds is that President Trump won the election (fair and square) that they thought they had in the bag. Since this is not an impeachable offense, they have spent the last 3 years trying to concoct one.

Absolutely, #3. I try to dis-remember all things Obola but I do keep remembering they ignored subpoenas as if they were never issued.

There is a tape recording of Biden admitting to having done a high crime. There is overwhelming circumstantial evidence of Bill and Hill doing high crimes for years. Cattlegate was totally proven.

What Pat? You don't think they believe that hurt feelz are a high crime in their book? That is all this is. The people they should be mad at are in the media. For the media lied to them as well as to us the voters. The media kept on daily with the Hillary can't lose and no path to 270 for Trump. The media bears a huge part of the responsibility for this three year tantrum, and they need to pay a stiff price for their lies.

Does everyone remember this? Pelosi claimed that Congress is not a coequal branch of government, but is the “superior” branch. “I think we’re a superior branch, quite frankly,” Pelosi said. “We have the power to make the law and the president enforces the law. So we have a big role. We’re closest to the people and we have a big role to play.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi-claims-congress-is-a-superior-branch-of-government Pelosi has been setting this up for months. Impeachment is the power move by Pelosi to change the nature or our government, from our American congressional system with three co-equal branches, to a parliamentary system with a figurehead president that reports to and is answerable to Congress. Under her system Congress would be superior to the other two branches, which would be powerless to resist. Thus the “obstruction of congress” impeachment count, impeaching President Trump for refusing to recognize Pelosi’s claimed Congressional superiority over the other two branches by refusing to obey and comply with Congressional summonses. Pelosi and crew are intentionally precipitating a constitutional crisis. The Supreme Court must slap this down and slap it HARD.

A Missouri church did its best to honor the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris by creating a seven-foot-tall gingerbread replica of the church. The cathedral suffered substantial fire damage earlier this year, so parishioners at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Weston, Missouri, decided to bring the cathedral back to life — with gingerbread and 450 pounds of ingredients. The confectionery delight measures seven feet tall at its highest point, eight feet long, and four feet wide. Lisa Stiffler, one of the creators behind the masterpiece, says the work is a “feel-good project.”

A Florida mother claimed that a neighbor’s Christmas light display inspired her nonverbal daughter with autism to speak her first phrase. Marisabel Figueroa Lopez believed that the lights and the music on her neighbor’s 200,000 synchronized light display set to music were the catalysts for her 13-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, to speak out for the first time in her life unprompted, WFLA reported. Figueroa Lopez’s daughter was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, and doctors have said she could never speak. “The neurologist who saw Kaitlyn said she was going to be non-verbal for all of her life,” Figueroa Lopez, a single mom from Mulberry, Florida, told Today.

An Oklahoma congresswoman became another on a growing list of Democrat lawmakers facing angry constituents over their efforts to impeach President Donald Trump. Rep. Kendra Horn got an earful from voters last week who were angry about the relentless focus of Democrats on impeachment while ignoring the real issues Americans care about.

House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler was confronted by a small group of angry voters for leading the Democratic Party’s sham impeachment. One voter warned Nadler that his shameless attempted coup will backfire on Democrats when President Trump wins the 2020 election in a landslide. Trump supporter Ben Bergquam and several other protesters shouted at Nadler as he wormed his way to the elevator in a bid to make a quick getaway after yesterday’s impeachment debate. “Shame on you, Chairman Nadler! Shame on you!” Bergquam yelled. “You’ve broken your oath! But keep doing it because the American people see through it. It’s going to work in President Trump’s favor. Keep it up!”

Time magazine's Person of the Year is starting to sound a little bloodthirsty: Greta Thunberg told cheering protesters today 'we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall' if they fail to take urgent action on climate change. The Swedish teen activist was addressing the crowd at a Fridays for Future protest in Turin, Italy. She arrived there from Madrid where she had been attending the UN climate summit but said she feared the event would not lead to change. Against the wall? It's kind of in line with Bernie Sanders's vow to put bankers in jail, except that it sounds more like something a totalitarian fanatic

With the TV cameras focused on the impeachment of President Trump ahead of its inevitable failure, some of the savvier swamp journalists have cast a sidelong glance at how the Trump campaign is doing. At least two of them could only see a helluva strong campaign. Here are Jonathan Swan and Margaret Talev at Axios: President Trump's re-election campaign wields more money, staff, infrastructure and advanced digital operations than the Democratic competitors — and a fan base that hears "impeachment" as a rallying cry. Here's Maggie Haberman & Co. at the New York Times: And while Mr. Trump himself has rued the fact that impeachment might tarnish his legacy,

The much anticipated return of Kaepernick will not happen, as Commissioner Roger Goodell put it: During a news conference in Irving, Texas, Goodell responded to a reporter's question about the November workout with Kaepernick and how it ultimately fell apart. "This was about creating an opportunity," Goodell said. "We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, an incredible opportunity and he chose not to take it. I understand that. And we've moved on here." Thank you, Commissioner. I can hear lots of cheering people from coast to coast. The left will probably explain this as another example of white supremacy.

Jennifer Finney Boylan, a New York Times opinion writer who teaches at Barnard College, wrote Wednesday: I’m sure that conservatives who love this old holiday chestnut will be infuriated by this suggestion. But if you watch the show without understanding that its central conflict is the way people who are different are constantly shunned and humiliated — well, I don’t know what show you’re watching.

Bass said, “The leader of the Senate has basically said he is in lockstep, and he is going to coordinate with the defendant. And so, if you can imagine going into a courtroom in a trial and the foreman of the jury says, well, I’m working with the person that’s being accused of the crime. And so, it’s completely inappropriate. McConnell should recuse himself. … How can a juror coordinate with the defendant? That is corrupt.”

If cosmic justice were to prevail, Democrats would drop their impeachment sham in confessed disgrace and move to give President Donald Trump a second term by acclamation for having ceaselessly abused their power in trying to nullify his first term. Though cosmic justice won't prevail, the Constitution will, including its prescribed Senate check on impeachment and its provision for election of presidents through the Electoral College. The Democrats have given new meaning to the term "overplaying your hand," and their witch hunt will continue to backfire. They will fail to remove Trump from office and, through their egregious overreach, will have probably ensured his re-election.

To achieve that goal, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire business and media mogul on Friday unveiled a plan that would shutter all 251 remaining coal plants across the country by 2030 and replace them all with clean energy. He would also phase out gas-fired power plants. At a speech in Alexandria, Va., Bloomberg warned that "we have to start working as hard as we can building a 100 percent clean energy economy because

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.”

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago. Their neighbors, the Carrascos and Trevinos, got them too.
