Nancy Pelosi has indicated today that the articles of impeachment will be forwarded to the US Senate, next week.
The Mitch McConnell-GOP impeachment show is evolving into an immorality play of near-biblical proportions. The fate of the nation’s values hinges upon oaths we take and the truths we allow. The Impeachment of Donald Trump trial is less about the future of the 45th President of the United States, but more about the legacy we leave this nation for future generations.
There are no prominent Democrats today on the national scene who advocate tax cuts like former President John F. Kennedy. In addition, there are very few who are as pro-military as former U.S. Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson (D-WA). Today, the party is filled with progressives, socialists and Trump hating members of the political establishment. One thing the entire party shares is an unrelenting hatred of the President.
With the impeachment of President Donald Trump, the U.S. House of Representatives sent a clear message to the American people. Despite the many problems in our country, the top concern for House Democrats is to punish President Trump. His true “crime” is being an outsider, an advocate of “America First” policies and a President committed to “draining the swamp” in Washington D.C. His values make President Trump the enemy of the Deep State, the media, the Democrats and their allies in Hollywood.
“Mr. President, with you all roads lead to Fordham.” Before Donald Trump got his academic bona fides at Penn, with its acclaimed Wharton school, he spent two years at Fordham University in the Bronx. Close to his home, and run by the Jesuits, it is a fine school, by all reasonable standards, even if it isn’t Ivy League. In fact, the only reason it deserves mention, since the University keeps its Trump affiliation mostly to itself, is a partial responsibility for gaps in the president’s knowledge of history,
It’ll be Lindsay Graham’s job to trek from the hill to the White House and tell Donald Trump that it’s time to pack up and go. To sweeten the pot, Graham will inform the president that the GSA has approved a Trump Presidential Library in the lobby of every building bearing the ex-president’s name.
Ever since he burst upon the political scene, the political establishment has been targeting Donald Trump. First, they attempted to deny him the nomination, then they worked overtime to hand the election to Hillary Clinton. When he won the presidency, there was an effort to thwart his transition team, followed by the Russian hoax to end his administration.
In the past few weeks, President Donald Trump has enjoyed an incredible stretch of good news. In fact, it has been his best stretch of good news since he entered the presidential race in 2015.
The highlight was former Special Counsel’s Robert Mueller embarrassing performance during two congressional hearings. He spent six hours bumbling and fumbling through incomplete answers. He seemed unable to hear or understand many of the questions. Overall, it was a shocking display of ignorance. Not only was Mueller unaware of Fusion GPS, but he also seemed to be clueless about the type of partisan Democrats he hired for the investigation. The Republican congressmen who questioned Mueller exposed him as a figurehead who was not in charge of the two-year $40 million investigation.
During the eight years Barack Obama was President, Democrats were united. He was the unifying force that held the party together. By bringing in Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State, he healed the wounds from the bruising 2008 presidential race. During his re-election campaign of 2012, Obama was not challenged for the Democratic presidential nomination and won another term as President.
I am convinced that recent developments in the Trump Russia controversy have further tarnished the reputations of Attorney General Bill Barr, the national Republican Party and specifically, the conservative Freedom Caucus.
Instead of trying to get to the truth about the results of a critical investigation, all three have joined together for partisan reasons to prevent information flow we need to understand our past. Yet, they loudly demand that all stones be unturned to investigate the investigators )in a probe I do hope gets to the whole truth).
By the way, did you know that the United States has been suffering from conditions so horrific, so frightening, so urgent, that the President of the United States has saved the day by calling a national emergency. All this, so he could get his funds to build his border edifice.
After making that declaration, he went to play golf for the weekend at Mar Lago in Florida.
