So riddle me this, why is it that any sane Republican, let alone anyone from the Trump administration, would ever want to appear on almost any program on what now seems to be ‘The New Fox News’ channel. I say ‘new’ because where it was once that the network genuinely was “Fair and Balanced” it’s these days that that no longer seems to be the case. These days there’s very little difference between Fox and any of the other networks that bill themselves as ‘news’ channels, but are nothing more than purveyors of what is nothing more than pure propaganda.
And it is one of the more prominent players at Fox and one who seems to take a great deal of pleasure in spewing what is nothing more than propaganda, is ‘Commie Chris Wallace. Wallace hosts a show, ‘Fox News Sunday,’ that bears little resemblance to ANY sort of actual ‘news’ program. And I think it fair to say that Republicans are treated far more fairly on the Communist News Network, CNN, or on MS‘LSD’. ‘Commie Chris’ a liar and a fraud who has absolutely no interest whatsoever in advancing the truth. Commie Chris’ is nothing less than a pure propagandist!
So apparently it’s according to this boob that some “well-connected” Washington Republican has told him that there is a 20% chance Republicans will vote to remove President Trump in an impeachment trial. He made this idiotic claim on the most recent broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” Hey Chris, trust me when I say that there is a 200% chance that any ‘Republican’ who votes for impeachment will be voted out of office at our earliest convenience. Republicans should just leave it to Democrats to go on with ‘Commie Chris’ as they are far more suited for one another.
And so it was during an interview with acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that ‘Commie Chris’ said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, someone whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there’s now a 20 percent chance, he believes —obviously that just an estimate — now a 20% chance enough Republicans would vote with Democrats to impeach the president.” Frankly, I’m thinking that’s little more than wishful thinking on the part of old ‘Commie Chris!’
Mulvaney responded by saying, “That’s just absurd.” He continued, “The comment about the 20 percent is just a person who clearly doesn’t know what they’re talking about.” He added, “The president is extraordinarily popular at home.” I’m with Mulvaney on this one, if for no other reason than I think there are still enough Republicans in Congress who realize that the GOP would cease to exist if they were to turn on President Trump. Now that’s not to say that there aren’t a few RINOs who would like nothing better than for that to happen, but I think they’re a minority.
Like most liberals, ‘Commie Chris’ is simply trying to get as much mileage as he can from riding on to his dad’s coat tails. And trust me, dear his old dad, Mike, was far from being an objective and unbiased ‘journalist’ himself. And have you ever noticed how every time we hear things like this from people like ‘Commie Chris’ they never, ever, tell you who it was that supposedly told them what? This is now an everyday occurrence in the media, outrageous claims, based on nothing but hearsay, that we’re still expected to believe. It’s now simply all ‘fake news,’ all of the time.
‘Commie Chris’ Wallace is not just a NeverTrumper, he’s made it pretty clear on more than one occasion that he is firmly on the side of those who hate America and therefore hate this president, because of his insistence to put America first. But his hate does not stop with the president, it is also directed at those who support him. There can be no doubt that ‘Commie Chris’ fully endorses the leftist position on all of the truly important issues facing our country today. He is a Socialist propagandist who hides behind calling himself a ‘journalist’ when he is anything but.
Personally I’m one of those who happen to be of the opinion that most congressional Democrats, for whatever the reason, view moving forward with impeachment, regardless of the fact that there appears to be no crime, as being the best way to hold on to their majority in the House. This despite the fact impeachment is DOA in the Senate, ‘Commie Chris’s’ inside information notwithstanding. So the plan is just to draw this out until the election, all behind closed doors, have the media spin the stories, trying to deliver political death by a thousand cuts to the president.
While I do take ‘Commie Chris’s’ claim of insider info with a grain of salt, there are likely at least five RINOs, Romney, Sasse, Ernst, Murkowski and Collins, who would support impeachment. This means Democrats only need an additional fifteen to turn on the president, and with Republicans rumbling about his recent pullout in Syria, the G7 Summit at Mar Largo (now cancelled) etc., I think we can safely assume there may be at least five more RINOs who would love nothing better than to impeach him but would likely only vote to impeach if they believed the effort would succeed.
And truthfully, even if Trump wins in 2020, it’s after he leaves office that, unless things change and pretty radically so, there will really be very little reason to vote for a Republican, any Republican. And let’s be honest here, the Republicans deliberately squandered the first two years of the Trump administration, a time when they controlled both Houses of Congress and the White House. They made a conscious decision to do next to nothing. They spent most of their time fighting the president in his effort to keep those campaign promises that got him elected.
So for us to think that the possibility of an actual impeachment is totally outside the realm of possibility is, I believe, maybe a little premature. We have to trust Republican Senators to do the right thing by the American people and treat this bogus attempt to impeach the president as exactly what it is, an attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election. And that, my friends, at this point is a heavy lift. So to be honest, I remain concerned that President Trump may still be a very long way from being totally out of the woods regarding this idiotic attempt at impeachment.
