Don't reward the dividers

The White House is under its worst attack since August 24, 1814, when British troops burned it down. Democrats and the rest of Washington would like to burn it down again with President Donald John Trump locked inside.

The press and the rest of the Democrat Party never gave him the peaceful transition of power he earned and the republic deserves.

Obama spied on him before the election and after. Obama planted a false dossier on him, conspired through intermediaries with CNN to publicize the dossier, and then laughed as the FBI saddled President Trump with a witch hunt by a score of Democrat lawyers and investigators.

Obama also allowed the training of bureaucrats loyal to him in the art of sabotage, including leaks to the media, slow-walking orders, and outright refusal to carry out direct orders.

Into this mess orchestrated by Obama waded Fred Barnes, an apolitical and respected journalist. The Russian collusion story may have been a hoax, but this Ukrainian deal is trouble, right?

He wrote, "Assuming the president is impeached, the scene shifts to the Senate, where Republicans have a 53-47 edge. Even if there are GOP defections, Trump should easily survive since a two-thirds Senate vote is required to convict him. For that to happen, it would take the disclosure of powerful evidence of wrongdoing by the president — that is, considerably stronger stuff than the text of Trump’s phone conversation with the Ukrainian president.

"Next comes the election. We’ve never had an impeached president running for a second term. Might Trump step down to avoid putting the country through this ordeal? Knowing what we do about him, there’s no chance of that. The 2020 race will be a fight to the death."

This ordeal?

Democrats created it. Why reward them with a surrender?

Barnes also wrote, "The gap between Republicans and Democrats has grown since Trump’s election. Many Republicans were skeptical about Trump’s presidency since it was unclear how conservative he would be. But they have been pleased by his accomplishments: cutting taxes, reducing regulations, nominating conservative judges, rebuilding the military, and reviving the energy industry.

"Democrats and the political Left, on the other hand, have been talking about impeaching Trump from the day he was elected. Their expectation that he had colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign didn’t materialize. But they’ve turned to other grounds for impeachment, notably the Ukrainian tie."

Ukrainian tie? Did Barron Trump accept a $600,000 no-show job with a Ukrainian energy company?

The president has done no wrong. He has returned all salary and all profits from foreigners visiting his hotels and resorts in the USA. He is blunt, which critics decry.

But he is keeping his promises, which really upsets Washington because he has broken the grading curve for politicians. No more, I tried. The people now demand, I delivered.

Barnes began his column, "The political divide in the country over President Trump is wider than ever. While 87% of Republicans approve of Trump in the latest Gallup poll, only 5% of Democrats and 34% of independents do.

"These numbers are the context for impeachment and the 2020 presidential election. They indicate that politics over the next year are going to be raw, combative, and mean-spirited in a way that most of us have never imagined, much less experienced."

The unprecedented nastiness from Democrats since President Trump's election was unimaginable at this point 4 years ago. But here we are.

Americans have a choice. They can approve spying on political opponents, sabotaging the government from within, and creating a star chamber in the House.

Or they can re-elect President Donald John Trump.
