Media Frankensteins hate their creation



The media wanted President Donald John Trump impeached. The House impeached him. Now as his acquittal nears -- painstakingly slow-walked at a turtle's pace by Mitch McConnell -- the media valedictorians ask themselves what have we done?

You only get one bullet. Democrats wasted theirs on the Mueller Report. This impeachment was a joke. Patricia McCarthy called it the impeachment face plant.

Now the media realizes that what does not end his presidency makes him stronger. The experts on TV are apoplectic. They had convinced themselves that calling a foreign president to congratulate him on his election is on the level of treason and bribery. How dare the rest of the nation roll its eyes!

Media Research Center reported on MSNBC presidential historian Jon Meacham freaking out.

Meacham said, "Donald Trump may well have now  become the most powerful president in American history. There's pause for a  second. Think about that. He has the capacity, he has such a standing with his political  base that senior United States senators have decided that though he is guilty, they are not going to risk the wrath of the people in order to follow through on what is clearly spelled out in the Constitution.

"That is a raw and elemental definition of power. And I think it's something that we haven't fully grappled with. The idea that what President Trump has done, and this is why the example going forward  is fraud. President Trump is functionally a monarch at this point. If the king does it, it's okay that that's what we're seeing unfold in Washington right now. And I think all Americans, whether you support the president or you don't should pause significantly and think about the long term implications of having a president who is above the law."

Um, that would be Obama whose administration got away with lying to judges 17 times to get warrants to spy on Donald Trump, his family, and his campaign. The New York Times even published excerpts of transcripts of the wiretapping (as the Times called it) on its front page without embarrassment. To the media, when the FBI does it, Watergate is OK.

But President Trump cannot even make a telephone call without some Obama munchkin embedded in the White House yelling "Citizen's Arrest."

Carl Bernstein of Watergate infamy freaked out on CNN, where he earlier colluded with the Obama administration to promote the Russian Collusion Hoax. Now the Ukrainian Hoax failed, too. Bernstein is angry.

He said, "It’s a cover-up. That’s what the Senate has now done. They have covered up what the President of the United States has done in his grievous action when they had the ability to find out more. And reach a bipartisan, as it were, the decision if we could hear from the witnesses if Mr. Bolton could come in and tell us, is there anything else there? No. Maybe it would be exonerating."

The truth is, senators heard via transcripts from 17 of the 18 House witnesses. Democrats won't share the transcript of the 18th witness.

Democrats and the media revived the corpse of Russian collusion. It destroyed their village.

They were careless. They did not think this through. When they flagged this phone call, Democrats exposed their front-runner -- Joe Biden -- to scrutiny. He had boasted about holding up a billion dollars in aid unless Ukrainians fired the prosecutor who was investigating his son's company.

Meacham is darned right that President Trump is stronger because this second failed attempt to steal his presidency has angered Americans. They want their votes to count. The media and the deep state don't.

And what happens now if Democrats nominate Biden? Will the Bernie Bros shrug off being denied the nomination like they did last time? Or will they buy MAGA hats and desert the party that wants nothing to do with them? Certainly the taint of foreign bribery staining Biden grants them permission to leave.

The media built this Fake Impeachment on another House of Fake News. The collapse of this attempt made The Donald stronger. Just as the Mueller Report did.

And just as the next impeachment will.

  4. Democrats must have forgotten that BJ Clinton's approval went up after his impeachment and acquittal. Unfortunately for them, he was a lame duck president at the time. Also unfortunately for them, President Trump is not a lame duck, and his approval will grow right on up to November.

  7. The Democrats assumed that PDJT was corrupt. The reason they assumed he is corrupt is because they're corrupt. Imagine if the Democrats in Congress got the same kind of scrutiny that Trump has been given.

  8. I'll bet that the real Dem/ Left powers are OK with these results.
    Their real aim is, the complete DE-LEGITIMIZation of the entire Const./ capitalist system, if not in minds of a majority, then in the minds of a large enough minority, that the Left can assemble Flash Mobs, etc., to threaten to kill this system from a thousand cuts (e.g. via terror, vs. a quite vulnerable JIT economy).

    If this impeachment BS hardens Righty/ moderate support for DJT, so what?
    What are those folks going to do, to try to thwart SJW sabotage of the country, other than vote?

  9. If only the DimmocRATS held a genuine Impeachment and not an Impeachment Inquiry, they could have issued actual subpoenas instead of letters of request.

    Someone explain to Jerry Nadler that calling said letters "Lawful Subpoenas" does not make them so.

    But after all this time of telling us the evidence is overwhelming, why would you need to call witnesses in the Senate? Build it better next time.
    Oh, and there will be a next time.

    3. As Sundance has pointed over at the Conservative Tree House, they went the unlawful subpoena route intentionally on the hope that they could persuade a majority of Senators to do their job for them, thus subverting the Constitution. We would have then been in endless impeachment trial, the end result which would be a Parliamentary government by which the President could be dismissed by impeachment at any time.

    3. Like other would be sorcerers before him in the last three years, Meacham is just a Democrat apprentice conjuring Oswald. Hope truly is the only god of the desperate.
      But I think Trump needs a more visible, Praetorian protection than he has at present. It will set off the trolls but He will be much safer.

  13. So now MSNBC presidential historian Jon Meacham sees himself as an attorney? I suppose his record of the impeachment will be anything but the truth and will be taught for centuries in the liberal academic institutions.

  15. The challenge isn't Biden. The Bernie Bros MIGHT be willing to go along, if he wins the nomination fairly.

    This weekend, it's the prospect of Mike Bloomberg that's going to cripple the Democrats and the Bernie Bros. By changing the rules in the middle to allow Bloomberg to play, the DNC leadership has declared war on the Bernie Bros, even more blatantly than they did in 2016.

  16. We blame Climate Change for Rats' ongoing, 3-year debacle. Just as the UN IPCC's "settled science" predicted in 1998, the Brazilian rain-forest has dried to baking desert; glaciers from Alaska to Antarctica and the Himalayas have shrunk to bedrock; sea-levels have risen to drown Manhattan and half the Indonesian archipelago.

    What's that you say?-- as of AD 2020, these global-habitat obituaries are "greatly exaggerated"? Puh-leeze, condign officialdom's "experts on the future" cannot be in error; they told us so themselves.
