Democrats have impeached themselves




The Democrat Party began the week by demanding the impeachment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh over an incident 30 years ago that the alleged victim does not recall. The Democrat Party ended the week by demanding the impeachment of President Donald John Trump because he may have said something to a foreign leader that was heard third-hand by a "whistle blower."

In 1972, Democrats lost the presidency in a 49-state landslide because they called for taxing everything.

They still do, but now they also want to impeach everyone and anyone who disagrees with them. The Queen of Hearts in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland shouted "Off With His Head" about someone every minute or so. She would be part of the Democrat Party's moderate wing today.

What we call the Cancel Culture is the civilian form of impeachment. Roseanne Barr tweeted a dumb joke about Obama's chief of staff and promptly lost her show. No trial. No discussion. No apology accepted.

The public watches this career carnage and understands it for the terrorism it is. Step out of line in Hollywood and lose everything. The conformity would be hilariously mocked if not for the savage treatment of dissenters.

Today, the Washington Post ran a column by Kellyanne Conway's husband and some law professor, "Trump has done plenty to warrant impeachment. But the Ukraine allegations are over the top."

A few months ago, Mr. Kellyanne and the law prof were barking about impeaching the president over a court filing by his lawyers.

Mr. Kellyanne and the law prof wrote, "He filed a brief in the nation's second-most-important court that takes the position that Congress cannot investigate the president, except possibly in impeachment proceedings. It's a spectacularly anti-constitutional brief, and anyone who harbors such attitudes toward our Constitution's architecture is not fit for office. Trump's brief is nothing if not an invitation to commencing impeachment proceedings that, for reasons set out in the Mueller report, should have already commenced."

So impeachment no longer is limited to high crimes and misdemeanors. Either agree with the husband of the campaign manager or face banishment from the kingdom.

Democrats have dropped the bar for impeachment from Russian Collusion to a telephone call. Rumor is that President Trump asked the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden's crooked, cocaine-addled son -- an investigation that Biden as vice president stopped by threatening to withhold billions in aid. We know this to be true because Biden bragged about it later.

The steady stream of demands for impeachment reflect a nation's capital that lives in an alternate world. Only 6% of the people in the district voted for Donald Trump. 46% of America did.

The anti-Trump crowd talks itself into frenzies over the dumbest things. Thus we have people advocating impeaching the president over a tweet about Mueller. Somehow they fluffed that into an article of impeachment.

They convince themselves that pushing back against the press or making jokes at political rallies are not normal behavior. He is not being presidential, they say.

But what is not normal are the constant calls for impeachment. The election is a little more than a year away. Instead of waiting for that, Democrats impeach their own credibility by whining on and on about impeachment.

In 2016, Democrats provided Trump-skeptic conservatives with a reason to vote for him -- Hillary.

In 2020, the talk of impeachment has turned the entire party into one big, fat Hillary. Oddly enough, the more they think he will win, the more they will call for impeachment.

  1. Earlier, I suggested the Obamas were behind this "Whistleblower" agit-prop event as a way to take Biden out of the primaries...but there is someone else who has even more motive, isn't there?

    2. I just saw a piece saying she may jump in now that the herd has started to thin.

      I can't wait.

    3. Doubtful. Have you seen a recent photo of her? She looks like an elephant wearing a circus tent. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3774980/posts?page=34

    1. He was very noticeably absent from last nights Rose Garden State Dinner. If they're holding their relationship together "for the children", I have to wonder which is worse, divorce or status quo for the poor kids.

    2. They may tell the kids that Mom has an important job and this was part of it.

      Someone on another thread mentioned that maybe he’s a good father. Strains credulity, but… different strokes…

      Nice mention of this article over at Meaning in History, an interesting blog I just discovered:

    3. While I understand that politics of people who love and care about each other don't necessarily lead to said couple breaking up, most people who disagree with politics aren't out there looking to destroy the other person's job.
      Staying together for the sake of the children is OK to a point, but when one of the partners is actively and publicly throwing out their opposition it is not healthy for the relationship or the children involved. Children are more perceptive than they are being given credit for. This type of toxicity between the parents over politics being fought in the public arena harms the children more than divorce would.
      Matlin and Carville had been on opposite sides of the political spectrum, and they joked about it, but I don't think they ever did what Kellyanne's spouse is doing. Not that I ever got their marriage either being that politics was such a large part of their lives, but it never was a case where they back stabbed the other in public like this.

    4. Bebe- thanks for that link to Meaning in History blog, it's indeed very interesting & has updates on the Ukranian situation, Paul Mirengoff, & a fascinating tidbit about Rod Dreher. I enjoyed it!

      As to Mr. Kellyanne, I feel sorry for her and the kids; he's a jerk for doing what he does in public. Hope she divorces him, it would be better for everyone but the jerk, and I don't often endorse divorce. In this situation it's unavoidable, for the sake of the kids. My 2c!

    IMPEACH HIM!

    Warren's barista used coffee beans sourced from the wrong country.

    IMPEACH HER!

    Beto's security detail looked at him in a funny way.

    IMPEACH THEM!

  5. Joe Biden: “So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him. (Laughter.) I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

  6. By Sotero’s counting, PDJT May win 52 of the 57 states. Hawaii, California, Illinois, Massachusetts and NY are lost causes.

    1. CA may still be lost, but thanks to Judicial Watch, this once-great but now literally crappy state has to remove at least 1.5 million illegal or dead voters from the electoral rolls!

      So maybe this time President Trump will win the popular vote too! #TrumpLandslide2020
