What if They Give an Impeachment and No One Comes? Reflection on the Democratic-Trump Impeachment Circus

The House Democrats are engaged in a unilateral, not voted on, inquiry on President Trump. The House Republicans are excluded from the “inquiry.” President Trump won’t cooperate with the House Democrats as it is now conducted. Even Representative Adam Schiff’s “not really a whistle blower” whistle blower refuses to appear in public. Speaker Pelosi and representative Schiff are recreating the despised Star Chamber. No notice! No right to defend! No right to face and confront the accuser! No right to present evidence! Not to mention selective quotes out of context! Trump Impeachment is a Catharsis for Democrats, who are still in the stages of anger and denial. Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from moment he was elected. They have yet to accept that this boorish (they think) outsider from reality TV defeated their anointed, brilliant, sophisticated, perfect candidate Hillary Clinton. She’s still in denial, blaming her loss on everything and anyone other than herself. She called President Trump last week “an illegitimate president” – she who rigged the Democratic nomination in 2016 to deny Senator Sanders – she who sought information from England, Russia, and the Ukraine to defeat Donald Trump. They’ve spent almost three years looking for an excuse to remove President Trump from office. They’re grasping at straws with Ukraine. Representative Adam Schiff is the Pied Piper of the Potomac, leading the Democrats where they want to go, but probably shouldn’t. Representative Schiff just won the non-coveted Four Pinocchio Award from the Washington Post for claiming he had no foreknowledge of the whistle blower who worked with his staff to draft the whistle-blower’s complaint, a whistle blower who belatedly went through channels, a whistle blower with only second hand, hearsay evidence. Where are all the other fact checkers quick to condemn President Trump? Where was the Washington Post over the past two years when representative Schiff almost daily announced President Trump colluded with the Russians? Representative Schiff has dusted off his statements from the past two years claiming proof of the Russian Collusion allegation against President Trump. “There was no there, there,” but he never apologized. Now he’s claiming proof of ???? I’m not sure. Schiff’s always shifting. Representative Schiff is the modern “Tailgunner” Joe McCarthy, who saw a communist under every rock. Why did Speaker Pelosi announce the inquiry even before she saw the transcript of the Trump-Ukraine telephone call? The Democrats’ rally call “READY, FIRE, AIM.” This is an extension of the centuries old struggles between a legislature and the formal leader, such as a king or president The United States has three equal branches, but this impeachment is an attempt to subordinate the presidency to the legislative (Congress), reducing the three separate branches to two, followed they hope by stacking the Supreme Court to rewrite the Constitution, thereby giving the Democrats. The House is sending out a flurry of subpoenas, which may end up as wallpaper. The Democrats are trying to quarantine the whistleblower who only had hearsay knowledge. Is it: 1) an attempt to avoid another Robert Mueller? 2) Build up the suspense? 3) For his/her own security? 4) Are they trying to take the steam out of the upcoming Inspector General’s Report? 5) Did Representative Schiff expect President Trump to not release the transcript, and thereby be able to allege quid pro quo? Perhaps all of the above, but the overriding reason is that Representative Schiff knows his ”whistle blower” has nothing; it’s another dud on the impeachment trail. Doesn’t this sound like a replay of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings? They’re still mumbling about impeaching Justice Kavanaugh. The only thing missing this time is Michael Avenatti. How many of the Democrat Representatives know where the Ukraine is? How many even knew or cared about the Ukraine until the chance to pin it on President Trump? How many know who the Kurds are? How many of the Democrats, salivating over the chance to impeach President Trump, have said how painful a process it is? Is it just a coincidence that the Russian Collusion, Russian Dossier and the current “whistle blowers’ emerge from the intelligence Community? Let’s see if we understand the inquiry? 1) President Trump did not threaten to hold up funds pending an investigation of Vice President Biden and his son Hunter, while the braggadocio Vice President is on tape threatening to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees. 2) Ukraine’s President did not know that President Trump had suspended $400 million in military assistance prior to the phone call. 3) The Ukraine had already initiated an investigation into Hunter Biden and the corrupt Borisma gas company Therefore impeachment proceedings are beginning against the President. Memo to Ambassador Marie Yavanovich: Ambassadors are Presidential appointees who serve at the pleasure of the President, just as FBI directors. We are told our Constitution is in danger because of President Trump’s behavior. Our Constitution is in danger because the Democratic House is attempting to impeach the President for personal and policy reason when no acts of Treason, Bribery, “other High Crimes or Misdemeanors” have occurred, at least by this President. The Democrats list their talking points, as of on clue: “Abuse of Power” “Betrayal of Office.” Echoes and cheering by the media doesn’t make it so. Contempt for Congress is not Contempt of Congress. One true statement of Vice President Joe Biden: “We place truth over facts.”
