Suppose they gave an impeachment and nobody cared?



Official Washington is obsessed with impeaching President Donald John Trump and has been for three years. But in covering the presidential race in Iowa, Edward-Isaac Dovere of The Atlantic found even hardcore Democrats in America could not care less.

He wrote, "The impeachment fight is all-consuming. It’s the biggest story in politics. No one is talking about anything else — except pretty much everywhere outside of Washington."

The politicians act accordingly.

He wrote, "Yet of the 13 candidates there, just one mentioned impeachment: Tom Steyer, the billionaire activist whose political group and TV ads over the past two years have helped mainstream the idea of removing the president. Steyer argues that his long record of being outspoken in favor of impeachment is a key part of why people should support his candidacy, yet his mention of impeachment Friday night got a warm but not overwhelming response. For the rest, despite all their Trump bashing that the crowd ate up — starting with Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price’s introduction with 'Let’s beat Donald Trump and send his ass back to Russia!' — impeachment was absent."

Steyer is a fool who thinks he can pull off what Donald Trump did. But pulling off the Greatest Upset in Presidential History requires genius, timing, and decades of dedication to becoming a household word. When did The Simpsons show Steyer running for president years before he ran?



Tom Steyer is a nobody.

The 12 real candidates know not to talk about impeachment because it is a loser issue.

Impeachment is a dog because the Mueller report vindicated President Trump. Democrats had one shot at him. They missed. Their supporters see them as incompetent. Trump's supporters laugh at them.

Gina Raimondo, Rhode Island’s governor and the chair of the Democratic Governors Association, talked to the Atlantic reporter.

He wrote, "Somehow, Raimondo said, Democrats are expected to say that Trump has committed impeachable offenses and that they’re on board with how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving through the process, and also to not say anything about impeachment at all. The hyper-engaged and serious-minded may find this hard to accept, but even with every day’s news out of the White House seeming like a point-by-point rebuttal to The Federalist Papers, most Americans still see the chaos of the moment as another case of politicians in Washington fighting with one another — like when the Tasmanian Devil used to spin off in whirlwinds of fury while the rest of the Looney Tunes characters looked on."

Impeachment requires a crime. ("The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.") Americans know there is no crime. That is why no real presidential candidate wants to talk about it.

  1. In the DC cesspool, not being a deep state tool is an impeachable offense.

    1. The freedom to say that 2 + 2 = 4. Been there (28 years), did the math (thank the Lord I retired before the transgendered stuff became the HR cause de jour), and split from Maryland before they made me support baby killing as a condition of employment. W. Tecumseh said he was going to make Georgia howl. I propose doing the same to Northern Virginia.

  2. They're manufacturing "the crime" as we speak. In fact, Shitty Schiff admitted as much over the weekend. He said, “Efforts to intimidate or threaten witnesses will further BUILD THE CASE for obstruction. . . .” (emphasis mine)

    Of course, there is no intimidation or threatening going on; instead, Trump and others are asking the snowflake whistling-in-the-dark fool questions, and the poor little snowflake is melting!

    Perhaps the poor snowflake whistle-liar is taking lessons from Greta, and we'll hear a "How DARE you!" before it's all over and done with!

  3. but even with every day’s news out of the White House seeming like a point-by-point rebuttal to The Federalist Papers

    Thanks to the bigoted, anti-American education establishment today, does anybody under age 50 even know what the Federalist Papers are?

    The lefties are defeating themselves.

    1. I've read the Federalist Papers, and the Anti-Federalists. They both had good arguments, and the founders hammered out an imperfect compromise. They fought each other with as much rancor as we see today. But the compromise they ended up with is the best that could be found with their knowledge of history and philosophy. Their imperfect system works, and if we survive the damage of the Obama years, it will be the ultimate testament to their genius.

    2. Greg, please don't take this personally as i just want to make a point about the founders and the constitution.

      The 'original constitution, the Articles of the Confederation', was deemed to not give enough power to the federal gov't. (yeah, there's nothing new under the sun)
      The problem was that the Articles of the Confederation had a clause, number 13 i think, that said it takes a unanimous vote from the states to change it. Well, the founders couldn't get that so they just went with 9 states. You can look it up.

      IOW, the founders need for more power was just too important to have to follow the laws.

      And that's the way it's been since day one of this country.

      I used to be a constitutionalist, but now i realize it is a great document, but completely worthless. If the big shots want something that isn't in the constitution, they'll get it no matter what the constitution says.

      F them all.

    3. the Articles of the Confederation', was deemed to not give enough power to the federal gov't.

      Precisely! They knew what they were doing was illegal. Its why the minutes of that convention were kept secret until the last of them, James Madison, died.

      Its why they met on the 2nd floor, during the summer heat, to stop anyone from listening in through the windows. The media was completely blacked out during that entire process.

    4. Unknown November 4, 2019 at 12:40 PM: Unanimous vote for changes so the convention, instead of correcting it, scraped it. The Founders expected adherence to the words in the document not attempts reinterpretation it based on it being a living document. Even the 14th Amendment to give all rights to African-Americans was perverted to take liberty in it to mean privacy and thus abortion and gay marriage. I can't wait for polygamy.
      I am sure the amendment's authors would agree. /sarc

    5. So, from a couple folks, we are to glom onto the notion that freedom as expressed via the Constitution is null and void.

      They might as well be Democrats who have expressed that for decades prior to the Civil War and then flat out ignored the Constitution for about 100 years afterwards with Segregation.

      Hmmmm ...

  9. Much stupid about the Constitution. Yes the Framers went beyond their mandate. And then they *proposed* the Constitution to the People of the United States. No one was forced into it.

    Furthermore it was adopted by the people of states (not their existing legislature) in the kind of conventions that approve state constitutions. the kind that "constitute" governments. Only the people of the states acting through such an assembly could adopt the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, even over state constitutions. And they did.

    Show off your tough guy cynicism if you will but don't spread fake news about the Constitution being some sort of coup d'etat. The Left has already defamed the Constitition enough. Spare us more slander from the Right.

  10. So for an impeachment and removal to be accepted, they have to bring the American people along in the process. Closed door, leaky "depositions" do not do that. At some point, the full House will have to vote on a written accusation, i.e., Articles of Impeachment. However, even the full House will not have heard the evidence for themselves, just the "prosecutors" media spin.

    Then the matter will move the Senate where the Senators will either require the witnesses to offer testimony or they too will vote based on the politically motived "prosecutors" framing of the case in the media. Except that the accused, the President (or his attorneys) are to be afforded participation in the Senate trial.

    And yet, if they were able to bring a sufficient diverse in geography (i.e., congressional districts) body of the American people into support for impeachment, then couldn't they do the same for the election day?

    It seems this is all being played out not to see Donald Trump leaving the White House before January 2021, but rather to try to influence the election so that he does leave in January 2021 rather than January 2025.

    And don't think the voters don't see that.
