As we all know, since President Trump was sworn in as president and set to work making good on the many promises that got him elected, he has been confronted by many of those who, together, form what continues to be called the ‘resistance.’ And it is that ‘resistance’ that has as some of its star players, just about every Democrat in Congress, just about everyone involved in what has become known as the ‘fake news’ media, and of course certain members of the president’s own party, those who we commonly refer to as RINO’s and whose names we all are all very familiar with.
And it was one of those very same RINOs, and someone who has not exactly been what one might refer to as being a fan of the president, Lisa Murkowski, who mentioned just this past Tuesday how “disturbed” she was to hear how Mitch McConnell had promised President Trump that they would coordinate on the upcoming Senate ‘impeachment’ trial. It was McConnell who had recently said that there would be “total coordination” between the Senate and White House regarding the upcoming Senate impeachment trial and this apparently “disturbed” the RINO from Alaska.
Murkowski said, “And in fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed. To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.” Murkowski also criticized Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment as rushed saying, “Speaker Pelosi was very clear, very direct that her goal was to get this done before Christmas.” But at the same time, she seemed not to be “disturbed” in the slightest about the way the sham impeachment was carried out in the House.
And I think it also worth noting that Murkowski was one of three Senate RINOs not to back a letter sponsored by McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, criticizing the Democrats’ closed-door and highly secretive ‘impeachment’ inquiry. Murkowski said that she hopes to see a “full and fair process,” which could be in line with ‘Slick Willy’ Clinton’s impeachment hearings. And she made clear that she remains very much undecided on whether she will to vote to convict President Trump or vote to acquit the president. Of course she does.
The House passed articles of impeachment last week, contending that the president obstructed Congress and abused the office of the presidency. And it was Murkowski who said, “For me to prejudge and say there’s nothing there or on the other hand, he should be impeached yesterday, that’s wrong, in my view, that’s wrong.” Actually what’s wrong is that anyone would treat what has taken place regarding the effort to remove the president from office as being anything other than the bastardization of the very same Constitution that they all claim to hold in such high regard.
This ‘impeachment’ is nothing more than an exercise in infantile behavior conducted solely by Democrats, for one reason and one reason only, they hate this president. There has been no wrongdoing on the part of the president, and compared to his last opponent, or any of the Democrats currently running to replace him, the man is an absolute Saint. The Senate, including RINOs like Murkowski, now needs to step up and do the right thing by showing the country how due process is supposed to work. They need to call what took place in the House exactly what it was, a complete mockery.
The intent here, on the part of Democrats and more than a few RINOs, is to somehow damage the president to the greatest extent possible before the next election. Democrats know that they don’t stand a snowball’s chance in Hell of defeating President Trump, based solely on the issues. And while they have sought to impeach the president since the day he was elected, their desperation to do so has now reached a fever pitch. To the point where they now view the only hope they have of defeating him is in being able to label him as having been impeached.
Murkowski wants a ‘full and fair process’ in the Senate, when the impeachment hearings were NOT full and fair in the House. If that isn’t being dishonest to one’s oath and hypocritical, I don’t know what is. Furthermore, she seems aghast that Republicans should line up in support of their party just as Democrats support theirs. Of course this is the historical way of Republicans, to kowtow to Democrat demands, but RINOs best move over, the Republican Party has changed. Boehner is gone, so is his lieutenant, Cantor as is Paul Ryan. And so is, thank God, RINO John McCain.
Look, the Democrats have already made it very clear that they have no intention of letting up on their plan to pursue more baseless ‘charges’ of supposed wrongdoing in their quest to impeach President Trump. This lunacy needs to be brought to an abrupt end, and it doesn’t help that we continue to have these supposed RINOs, like Murkowski, out there giving some level of credibility to accusations that continue to be made by those who possess zero credibility. So not only is this insanity permitted to continue, but RINOs like Murkowski give the impression it’s to be taken seriously.
What we should all find even more disturbing, is Murkowski’s own history. Nepotism got her into the Senate, she has failed in three different elections to receive 50 percent of the vote and ran against the Republican nominee for the Senate in 2010 who defeated her for the nomination. She’s a complete fraud, and one who, dare I say, reminds me of a female version of Romney. And she has likely provided enough cover for other RINOS, of which there are many, to join her. It would seem that the corrupt always rise to the top when the future of ‘The Swamp’ may be at stake.
And so the Democrats continue with their effort to impeach the president and to be supported in their endeavor by their many allies in ‘fake news’ and, less openly, by certain RINOs like Murkowski who seem willing to go along with the Democrats’ demented concept of fairness and their use of it to continue with this scam of an impeachment. But Murkowski is far from being the only player on what it supposed to be the president’s own team. And while the time has come to bring an end to this Democrats inspired insanity, it would seem we still have those willing to play along.
So our Republicans in the Senate have a rather important decision to make, they can, as we have seen on far too many occasions in the past, choose to once again merely fumble the ball, like they did twice after promising to get rid of Obamacare, once to let it pass and once to fail to repeal it. Or they can demonstrate a little backbone for once and squash this act of treachery like it deserves to be squashed. It’s McConnell who is a world class fumbler. But if he chooses to fumble this one then it’s gonna be the end of the Republican Party and perhaps even the end of the Republic.
