It has been over the course of the last 30+ years that very little has changed in ‘Mad Maxine’s’ politically corrupt approach to serving in elected office. But what has changed, and very considerably so, is the fact that ‘Mad Maxine’ has managed to acquire for herself a small fortune. And something else that has changed very little over that same period of time is how it remains a pretty rare event whenever we have any member of the Democrat Party who willingly chooses what’s best for the country over what’s best for their party, hence the motivation behind the impeachment of Donald Trump. Although is it really what’s best for the Democrat party?
It was that which ‘Mad Maxine’ once challenged as being nothing less than a blatant coup attempt made against a then Democrat president that is today, 30 years later, when perpetrated against a Republican president, considered as being something that Democrats claim they have been forced to do for no other reason than because the future of our Republic is now very much at stake. And despite the fact that back in 1998 the Republicans had quite the list of actual crimes that had been committed by then president ‘Slick Willy’ Clinton, Democrats have essentially been forced to be a bit creative when it comes to identifying wrong doing on the part of President Trump.
And so, back in December 1998, as the Republican-led House of Representatives debated the various articles of impeachment against then president ‘Slick Willy’ Clinton for the crimes of perjury, lying under oath, obstructing justice, and abusing his office, it was a chorus of House Democrats who chose to describe the effort as an attempted “coup.” And, as expected, it was none other than ‘Mad Maxine’ Waters, a Democrat, who was then one of the more vocal members of that disgusting little group of Democrats. But it has been since then that her definition of what constitutes a “coup” seems to have ‘evolved’ into something quite different.
You see, where once ‘Mad Maxine’ was a staunch opponent when it came to the impeachment of a Democrat president she is today much more of an enthusiastic supporter of doing so to a Republican president. None of which, I suppose, should really come as much of a surprise to anyone. So it would it seem that, at least according to ‘Mad Maxine’, what makes a president worthy of being impeached depends entirely on which political party said president is a member of. After all, what proof do the Democrats have that any crime has actually been committed? They have none, because there is none. And yet the impeachment circus continues.
And, again, it was back in 1998 that ‘Mad Maxine’ went so far as to invoke American troops as her defense of the ‘Slickmeister.’ It was then that she said, “Mr. Speaker, how must our American soldiers feel to have their Commander in Chief under attack while they are engaged in battle? They have the right to feel betrayed and undermined. Today we are here in the people’s House debating the partisan impeachment of the President of the United States of America while the Commander in Chief is managing a crisis and asking world leaders for support. This is indeed a Republican coup d’etat…” And yet what we have today is clearly exactly that!
And it was at a Dec. 1, 1998 news conference that ‘Mad Maxine’ boldly declared that there were no “impeachable offenses,” but Republicans were “still in search of some way to make the American people believe that this president (Clinton) should be impeached.” Now fast-forward to just this past September and we see how the tables have now turned with the House Democrats having announced their intent to move forward with impeaching President Trump. And it’s the Democrats who have spent the last three years in desperate search of something, anything, that they could then use to fuel their effort to act preemptively as we head into the 2020 election.
And it’s today that ‘Mad Maxine,’ and every other Democrat, can be said to be guilty of the very same charge that she was then making against the Republicans. Although there is one very important difference, ‘Slick Willy’ was actually guilty of a crime. Whereas what charges there are that have been made against President Trump are very clearly bogus, to say the least. Yet it was ‘Mad Maxine’ who has now pronounced herself as being “elated” regarding the fact that the Democrats are moving forward with their very fraudulent attempt to remove a sitting president whose only ‘crime’ is that he defeated the chosen Democrat in the last presidential election.
And it was she who said in a recent statement, “I’m beyond pleased that a strong majority of my Democratic colleagues have joined us in the effort to hold accountable and impeach the most unlawful and unpatriotic man to ever occupy the White House.” She went on to say, “As I have stated time and time again, Donald Trump is a dangerous and dishonorable man. He has no respect for our democracy, our Constitution, or the rule of law. It is past time that Congress fulfills its Constitutional duty to impeach him. I am elated that it appears that day is upon us.” Elated at the impeachment of a duly elected president? How truly sick is that?
So on December 11 and 12, 1998, the House Judiciary Committee approved four articles of impeachment against ‘Slick Willy,’ including ‘Slick’s’ “perjurious, false and misleading grand jury testimony regarding the Paula Jones case and his relationship with Monica Lewinsky; perjurious, false and misleading testimony in the Jones case in his deposition and answers to written questions; obstruction of justice to delay, impede, cover up and conceal the existence of evidence related to the Jones case; and misuse and abuse of his office by making perjurious, false and misleading statements to Congress. The full House passed only the first and third articles.
And it was after a five-week trial in the Senate, that ‘Slick’ was acquitted on both counts on Feb. 12, 1999. And even after one of their own was acquitted for what was nothing less than lying under oath, the Democrats today somehow think that they can prove that President Trump’s actions actually rise to the level necessary for impeachment. It would be funny if it weren’t so serious. There is no there, there. There never has been! And this entire impeachment charade does nothing more than demonstrate just how fearful the Democrats are of losing in 2020. And even if they do, they have got to realize that another of their kind will someday be elected.
It’s almost as if they think that they are somehow entitled to win every election. They’re not! Nobody is! I’m just thinking that the Democrats could have played this so much better had they simply chosen to bide their time. I mean think about it, who is it that the Republicans have that will be able to take the baton from President Trump? If the Democrats had been smart about it, they would have spent the four, or even eight, years of a Trump presidency working with president, not against him. I think they would have bolstered their cause much by doing so. Because, like I said, it’s not like we’re never going to elect another Democrat president.
I think we all know that there will come a time when we will elect another Democrat president. It truly is simply a matter of time. With the demographics of the country now slowly becoming far more favorable to Democrats, had they been willing to show how they could work with the president they likely would have alienated far fewer of their traditional followers. They would have been able to take some level of credit for an improving economy and stood with the president as he demanded our NATO partners pay their fair share and as he worked to make trade with China far more fair. But they didn’t, and they have allowed President Trump to claim all of the credit.
So it’s as we head into the next campaign season, the only thing that the Democrats truly have to hang their hat on is nothing more this silly attempt at impeaching the president that is going virtually nowhere once it hits the Senate. And yet they insist upon moving forward with it. But then this is what happens when you have the likes of Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi identified as being the collective face of the Democrat Party. And it all could have been so very different. But trust me when I say that I wouldn’t have had it any other way. And come the next election it’s my sincere hope that they will reap only what they’ve sown.
