As the mindnumbing corporate news inundates us with report after report that Congress has impeached Donald Trump (over unsubstantiated claims), let’s remember that it will do nothing but bolster his run in 2020, while simultaneously opening the door from here on out for partisan hatred to override the rule of law in America.
Donald Trump has done plenty of things since getting into office that should’ve gotten him removed from his post in one form or another — ie. his order to bomb the sovereign nation of Syria under what we now know to be false pretenses; prostituting the American military to Saudi Arabia at the corrupt kingdom’s orders; bragging about the illegal theft of Syria’s oil; spearheading the campaign to allow Israel to break international law after international law with no consequence; sticking kids in cages away from their parents in deplorable conditions; increasing troops to the now exposed fraud of a war in Afghanistan; transferring the largest amount of wealth from the American people to the parasites on Wall Street in history… I could go on. The man is a tyrant, no doubt.
But Donald Trump shouldn’t have been impeached for the nonsense the verifiably insane Democratic Party impeached him for yesterday — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Their evidence was, as I said before, completely subjective, unsubstantiated nonsense.
The Democratic establishment hates Donald Trump and they’ve been trying every weak trick in the book to get rid of him since before he was elected — convict now, make up evidence as we go. Through their bought-and-paid-for cells in the poisonous western media, they have completely misinformed the American public with a constant barrage of newscasts dedicated to conspiracy theories built on zero credible evidence, just like the Mueller Report before this episode. People’s minds, out of their indoctrinated hatred for Trump, have completely melted.
But that’s the crux of it. The Dems can’t go after Trump for his war crimes in Afghanistan, Yemen, or Syria; or for taking kids away from their parents at the border and locking them in cages, because the Democratic establishment supports those crimes and commits them themselves. Think about it, they just gave the man they want you to believe is a proven Russian asset $70 billion to continue them. Is that what you do when you truly believe a man is a tyrannical dictator and a traitorous asset of a foreign government? Of course not! This is all smoke and mirrors.
Most interesting, Trump has been impeached for hearsay allegations about trying to get information on a political opponent from a foreign government — Ukraine — and withholding money from that government’s country in order to get that information; all the while the very political opponent he was looking for information on — former Vice President Joe Biden — is on video admitting he held back a billion dollars from the same country unless they removed from his post a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the corruption of the company Biden’s son ‘worked’ for. That is a real, documented quid pro quo of an unchallenged magnitude. Will there be any repercussions for old Joe? Of course not.
Here is Rep. Doug Collins during Trump’s impeachment hearings, where the subject of a quid pro quo between Trump and Ukraine was used as a heavy weapon of the Democrats, reading the full transcript of what Biden admitted to:
Now, let me re-establish that Donald Trump is a criminal and a narcissist on levels rarely, if ever, witnessed before. But that doesn’t excuse the mockery of law and order that has just been committed by the US House of Congress.
This impeachment just left every future president susceptible to impeachment based on bogus grounds. Nobody articulated this better than the statements made by law professor Jonathan Turley during the hearings:
“President Trump will not be our last president, and what we leave in the wake of this scandal will shape our democracy for generations to come. I’m concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger.
“I believe this impeachment not only fails to satisfy the standards of past impeachments, but would create a dangerous precedent for future impeachments.”
And that’s the question the Democrats don’t care to ask themselves:
“Before we cut down that tree so carefully planted by the framers, I hope you consider what you will do when the wind blows again, perhaps for a Democratic president. Where will you stand then, when all the laws being flat?”
That’s what this whole sham of an impeachment — three years in the making, by any means necessary — boils down to. The rule of law in the US, a country that affects all other countries on the planet, has been flattened by zealotry for party; submission to partisanship.
But most importantly, and this is why I’ve avoided covering this topic, nothing is going to happen. The Senate acts as judge in this impeachment, and the Senate is majorly made up of Republicans who will throw this impeachment out the window as soon as it slithers in through the door. Everybody knows this. Everybody knows this as much as they knew the Democrat House would vote to impeach. So what does that mean? It means this whole fiasco was a waste of time from the very start.
Through their shameful actions, the Democrats have just guaranteed that Republican voters will show up to the polls in record numbers in 2020 to keep them out of the White House, and have just ushered Trump in to his second victory and delivered it to him on a silver platter, much like the cheeseburgers from McDonald’s he stuffs into his face on a regular basis, which is a terrible thing for the entire world. Though the impeachment is unjust, this is not a man you want with access to nuclear weapons. I’d say he’s a lock at this point, barring some unforeseen occurrences.
That all said, this is what I can’t stress the most. Last week the Washington Post revealed an enormous amount of official US documents showing unequivocally that the entire intelligence community, three straight White House administrations, and the top brass of the US military have been blatantly lying about every aspect of the longest running war in American history — Afghanistan — which has needlessly cost countless lives for 18-years. This is quite possibly the biggest revelation to have ever been delivered to the public, and this story has been kept in the shadows while the corporate media — which, let’s face it, is state television — deteriorated their viewership’s minds with endless broadcasts about a go-nowhere sham of an impeachment, stringing them along with the narrative that Trump would be out of office in no time for his ‘high crimes.’ It’s all been, and continues to be, bullshit. A massive distraction.
The American oligarchic establishment is blacking-out the information that matters right now — be it the Afghan Papers, the OPCW leaks, the genocide still being continued in Yemen, the Saudi-9/11 documents, etc. — and instead throwing up an impeachment smokescreen to mesmerize the public. It’s time to see it for what it is, and see them for what they are. It’s time for everyone to start paying attention to what’s happening behind the curtain so we can once and for all end the mind-rotting lies being acted out on the stage.
