Can we all please come to agreement on the fact that Mitch McConnell is little more than a nutless wonder? After all, which party is it that now has a majority in both the House and Senate? Well, if you go by the numbers it’s the Republican Party. And whose leaders are now acting like a couple of limp-wristed, pansy-assed, pussies? Sadly that too would be the Republican Party, that same party which holds a majority in both houses of Congress. But besides being a nutless wonder, McConnell is, and always has been, a NeverTrumper who has become quite comfortable there in the same ‘Swamp’ that Trump promised us that he would drain.
As proof of what I say I point to how McConnell has once again folded like a cheap suit, giving into demands coming from Democrats and the state-controlled media for a Special Counsel. Despite, at least from what I’ve read, the fact that most of the emails released by WikiLeaks came from within the DNC. From the same poor schmuck who died under rather curious circumstances. Supposedly the FBI has some 44,000 emails that this guy sent to WikiLeaks, so was he too working for Vlad? So this is all nothing more than smoke and mirrors with old Mitch only too happy to play a part as long as there’s a possibility of damaging President Trump.
And let’s face it, the Democrats have been talking about impeaching Donald Trump since before he even took office. And it was within days after the election that the state-controlled media had taken up the refrain and it has been in the past several days that both the Washington Post and New York Times have both claimed to have “scoops” regarding the most recent topic du jour, the Comey firing. But neither showed Trump as having done anything illegal nor was grounds for impeachment. And now the RINOs are beginning to chime in. And they are not just attacking Trump, but also his supporters. And that they may come to regret.
And make no mistake here, Trump voters fully understand what’s really going on here. Trump declared he would “drain the swamp” and now it’s the swamp that is fighting back. There is NO substance to the claims against him. There is NO evidence Trump colluded with Russia. There is NO evidence he compromised national security in sharing terror intelligence with Russia as, wait for it, Obummer had done. And the idea that he obstructed justice in talking with James Comey is demonstrably untrue. When Trump claims, as he did on Wednesday, that no politician “has been treated worse or more unfairly,” he is absolutely correct.
Look, the state-controlled media, aka the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, is furious that Trump one, won the election, and two calls them out as being ‘fake news.’ So as a form of retaliation, shall we say, they have set out to do anything and everything they can to make sure that he would be unable to enjoy any semblance of a “honeymoon” in office. And Democrats have continued to treat Trump as if he had executed a coup instead of winning an election, having now gone so far as to dub themselves the “Resistance” and in so doing have set about to obstruct every Trump nominee, every bill, and every policy decision.
Now to be honest Obummer complained about Republican “obstruction,” too. But while their opposition hardened in response to the very bogus $862 Billion ‘stimulus’ bill and Obamacare, the Republicans gave him a chance to govern. And Republicans approved most of Obummer’s Cabinet appointees pretty quickly. They told voters “elections have consequences,” and joined Democrats to confirm his early Supreme Court nominees. They never spoke of impeachment, though he had, arguably, earned it and on more than one occasion. Trump has never been given the same chance, or for that matter any chance, to carry out his agenda.
And for months now, Trump’s supporters have watched as the state-controlled media fawned over the hysterical opposition, praising the “pussyhat” protesters and downplaying the extremists within their ranks. But still, Trump’s supporters have not abandoned him because he has not abandoned them. They are patient and they are very well aware of what it is that he is up against. Their only worry is that he may choose to compromise in order to save himself. And hopefully it is now beginning to slowly dawn on Trump that no amount of compromise will ever satisfy his critics, on either side of the political aisle.
Meanwhile, the Democrats have now succeeded in burning nearly every bridge back to political reality and civility. But that seems to have had little effect on their twisted insistance in going down the path that they have now chosen for themselves. And the NeverTrump faction, shamed into silence by the election results and by Trump’s nomination of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, have now re-emerged behind the shield of the ‘mainstream’ media to taunt him. And politicians who once courted his favor now stumble over one another in their rush to the cameras to condemn him, thinking that by doing so they are somehow saving themselves.
But Trump’s voters understand this is not an attack on Trump alone. They know to be true what White House adviser Steve Bannon told CPAC back in February: “If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. Every day it is going to be a fight.” And by spoiling for that fight, the Washington establishment is, foolishly, giving frustrated Trump supporters a new reason to go to the polls in the 2018 midterm elections. And it’s in so doing that I hope millions will go out on Election Day and view themselves as being on a mission, a mission to get rid of every single scumbag Democrat and every RINO they can!
The Washington ‘Establishment’, that cesspool of corruption and dishonesty, whose membership consists of those from both sides of the aisle and who firmly believes that it is their right to rule the common folk. But the only argument for having an elite in the first place is that it will not be swayed by the momentary passions of the mob. Instead, the ‘Establishment’ has imposed a virtual state of emergency, one that threatens the very institutions that they, ‘The Establishment’ claims to be defending. Case in point: James Comey, for all his protests about the “integrity” of the FBI, continues to use it as a political weapon.
Those, like myself, who decided to cast their votes for Mr. Trump last fall, against the advice of their “betters,” did not do so only to see their hard fought victory snatched away by a radicalized Democrat Party together with a contemptuous state-controlled media and the bunch of sore losers that comprise the NeverTrumpers. Until now, while his supporters might have once been tempted to punish President Trump’s slow progress on some issues by staying home from the polls, it’s all of this groundless talk of “impeachment” that will be what will motivate them once again come 2018, when they will come out again, fighting for the survival of their country.
And while the RINOs, Democrats, and the majority of those in our state-controlled media are now gunning for Mr. Trump after his firing of James Comey, and the subsequent leaks from Comey associates portraying alleged conversations between the two, there are more than a few legal experts who are quite skeptical when it comes to there being a case that can be made for a charge of “obstruction of justice.” Professor emeritus at Harvard Law School Alan Dershowitz, a guy who is himself a flaming liberal, writes in the New York Daily News that “on balance, the obstruction case against President Trump is not strong, as a matter of law.”
And it is in the New York Times that author and professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law Elizabeth Price Foley makes the point that President Trump’s alleged statements to Comey do not constitute an obstruction of justice. She says, “Indeed, if they did, virtually every communication between criminal defense lawyers and investigators would be a crime.” And she goes on to write:
“It’s Section 1510 of Title 18 of the United States Code that addresses obstruction of criminal investigations. It is a narrow statute, criminalizing only willful acts “by means of bribery” that have the effect of obstructing the communication of information about crimes to federal investigators. Even assuming Mr. Comey’s memo is accurate, there is no indication that President Trump willfully attempted to bribe the F.B.I. director. As the Supreme Court stated in United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of California, “for bribery there must be a quid pro quo — a specific intent to give or receive something of value in exchange for an official act.”
There is no evidence of a quid pro quo. Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that Mr. Trump intended an implied offer of continued employment in exchange for Mr. Comey’s dismissal of the Flynn investigation, it would be implausible for Mr. Comey to construe it as such. Mr. Comey was aware that he was an at-will employee who could be fired by the president at any time, for any reason. Indeed, when Obummer endorsed Hitlery for president in June 2016, during the height of the FBI’s investigation into her private email server, it would have been similarly implausible for Mr. Comey to construe Obummer’s pro-Hitlery remarks as an implicit offer of continued employment, in exchange for dropping the Clinton investigation. Even though Mr. Comey dropped the investigation one month later, he presumably knew that although it would please both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton, it would not insulate him from being fired.
But even if one adopted an unprecedentedly broad conception of bribery, Mr. Trump’s purported statement still would not violate Section 1510. The statute is designed to preserve the free flow of information, prohibiting only acts that obstruct investigators’ access to information. Bribery of a potential witness, for example, is behavior prohibited by Section 1510. But telling the F.B.I. director that someone is a “good guy” and expressing the hope that an investigation will cease does not obstruct the free flow of information.”
As a hard working family man and a guy who just wants to live his life, I will tell you that if they attempt to impeach Trump over this type of bullshit that has no basis in fact, they had better be ready to face the consequences. I will be happy to join the “Real Resistance”, those who love America and are against the globalists and those who are working diligently in their effort to sabotage our duly elected president. They are trashing the Constitution and our institutions. Our country will literally be “over” if that happens. If that happens it will be up to those Patriots who remain to stand up and take it back, no matter what the cost.
But even with all that being said, things are not always what they appear to be. While those of us who still support the president may be angry about the continuing attacks, I firmly believe that when all is said and done the outcome will be the complete exoneration of the president. And while these continuing attacks may come to serve the very useful purpose of drawing out the Republican snakes from the tall grass and exposing the media and the Democrat Party as being evil and corrupt, what is most concerning to me is that these attacks accomplish exactly what the Democrats are wanting, the slowing of the Trump agenda to a crawl.
This continuing saga being perpetuated by the Democrat Party, any number of RINOs as well as an undetermined number of those in our state-controlled media proves nothing if not the fact that ‘The Swamp’ does not WANT to be drained and will not go willingly nor without a fight. And, of course, there is nothing that those who are hip deep in the ‘Swamp’ will not say or do in their effort to make the point that there really is no need to drain the swamp. But I would like to take the opportunity to thank the “impeach Trump” Republicans for marking themselves for us. Now we know exactly who needs to face primary challenges next year.
