As we enter the 2018 mid-term cycle, more and more talks about Democrats winning to impeach Trump will occur. They will certainly run on that. They’ve talked about impeaching him well before he even took office and will continue talking about it until he’s finished with his 2nd term as President.
But it seems as though at least one writer from one Mainstream Media source realizes the error in the Democrat Party’s ways. Jeet Heer (yes, that’s a real name), a Leftist writer for the website “New Republic”, wrote an article calling for Democrats to stop focusing on impeaching Trump and start focusing on just beating him at every chance they get.
The article is titled: “The Democrats’ Dangerous Obsession With Impeachment.”
Quite the powerful, Leftist-bashing title, especially coming from another Leftist.
The article begins with: “Amid a stream of revelations, arrests, and plea bargains from Robert Mueller’s investigation of Donald Trump campaign’s connections with Russia, liberals are becoming giddy at the prospect of impeaching the president.”
“Becoming”? They’ve been giddy at the prospect of impeaching him since before he took office! The Russia investigation is almost all they’ve talked about this past year. WHAT DO YOU THINK ITS INTENT IS?! It’s meant to lead to Trump’s impeachment. They want him locked up too, but they’d settle with impeachment, as long as they can also impeach Mike Pence.
But they aren’t just “beginning” to get giddy at the thought of succeeding. They’ve been dreaming about this almost since the election. I say almost because they’ve had to have time to grieve over the fact that their liar of a candidate, Crooked Hillary, was absolutely destroyed in the election.
The article then talks about how Vox’s founder, Ezra Klein, “argued last week that impeachment be normalized as a regular procedure in American democracy… [Ezra] wanted to redefine the rules for impeachment so they apply to Trump, a president who has demonstrated that he is manifestly unfit for office. ‘Impeachment is not a power we should take lightly,’ Klein wrote. ‘Nor is it one we should treat as too explosive to use. There will be presidents who are neither criminals nor mental incompetents but who are wrong for the role, who pose a danger to the country and the world… Being extremely bad at the job of president of the United States should be enough to get you fired.’”
After writing that he subjectively believes “it is true that Trump is ‘extremely bad at the job of president”, he recognizes that such a definition would be a bad idea because impeachment would then be used as a political weapon (or at least a more readily used one than it already is) and that the reasons for impeachment are entirely subjective (which defines every reason the Left currently has for impeaching him).
But let’s go with it for now. If being bad at being president should get you fired, why wasn’t Obama fired within his first 4 years? The Fast and Furious scandal, which even the National Review acknowledges as one of the Obama administration’s “earliest embarrassments”, put around 2000 weapons into the hands of criminals south of the border. One of which took the life of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
If allowing criminals outside the border to get weapons isn’t considered “being a bad president”, then what is? He willingly put border patrol agents’ lives in danger. And he’s not an idiot. He knew the consequences of such actions. He just didn’t care.
Like he didn’t care about the 4 Americans killed in Benghazi. That was as much Obama’s fault as it was Hillary’s. Reinforcements were requested but they were denied. There was no reason to deny reinforcements. They could’ve saved at least one if not all of the Americans in the embassy, but the victims were denied help. And then, an innocent man was arrested for allegedly putting up a video that supposedly insulted the Islamic barbarians enough to kill people. A video which never existed.
Long ago, I wrote an article titled “As Bad As Obama Was, Does He Deserve To Be Jailed?” In it, I delve further into the reasons he should go to jail. But really, you can easily say those were all reasons he should’ve been impeached. If we’re talking about impeaching a president because he’s bad, then why was Obama never even close to being impeached?
Regardless, we move on. The article then talks about how it’s virtually impossible for Trump to be impeached. “The practical problem is that for impeachment to be meaningful, Trump would not just have to be impeached by the House of Representatives (which requires a simple majority) but also removed by the Senate (requiring a two-thirds vote). It’s easy to imagine a scenario where the Democrats win the House of Representatives in 2018 and have the necessary votes for impeachment. But even in that best-case scenario, in which Democrats win every toss-up race for the Senate, they would still be well short of the votes they need in the Senate. Which means that kicking Trump out of the White House by necessity has to be a bipartisan effort with significant Republican buy-in.”
He fails to mention that the Vice President also would have to vote to impeach the POTUS.
Quoting Peter Beinart of The Atlantic, the article says: “the possibility of Republicans co-operating in removing Trump is dropping even as there’s more evidence [emerging] that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.”
Well, two things about this: First, I’d like to ask: “what evidence?” Believe me, if there was any sort of solid evidence that points to Russian collusion, we’d be hearing about it. We’d definitely know it. So far, the only thing that even remotely comes close to being evidence is the Russian dossier. But that’s all fake as well. It comes close simply because it’s the basis for the entire investigation.
Trust me, it doesn’t take a year for the FBI to find a single piece of evidence of a crime (they usually investigate crimes, not people, but still). It doesn’t take the MSM a year of investigation to come up with nothing if there’s clear criminal activity.
I’ve been saying this for months now and will likely have to continue saying this until Trump’s 2nd term is over, but if there was any solid piece of evidence of collusion, we’d know about it by now. The MSM has been quick to deliver fake news about this. Could you imagine how quick they’d be to deliver real news about this if it were true? They’d be the only thing in this known universe to exceed the speed of light upon delivering such news.
But they haven’t. There’s nothing real about the investigation and the news the MSM reports.
Second, the possibility of Republicans co-operating in removing Trump is dropping not because they will “tolerate just about anything from Trump”, as the article writes. That’s the thing, they DON’T tolerate anything from Trump.
Over and over again, you hear people like John McCain, Mitt Romney, Lindsay Graham and other RINOs blatantly being AGAINST anything Trump does. What this guy is saying is entirely wrong and false. He continues by saying that “[The GOP] continue to stand with him despite his demented tweeting, the political support he’s given to Roy Moore, his repeated expressions of contempt for the justice system, and his cavalier threats to launch a nuclear war.”
That sentence is so insanely wrong I could probably write another article on that sentence alone. We’ve heard multiple times, from the very people listed above, that he should slow down or altogether stop tweeting. They want to shut him down. They don’t want him to be telling the truth to people through social media.
They’ve been adamantly against Roy Moore and Trump’s support of him. They’ve been less vocal about it in recent time because other news have filled the media’s time, such as the tax plan. But they still despise the judge.
“Repeated expressions of contempt for the justice system”? Are you kidding me? Take the Kate Steinle case. Look at the facts and then tell me the verdict wasn’t utter b.s. Who wouldn’t have contempt for such an “injustice” system?
“Cavalier threats to launch a nuclear war”? Why is pushing back against a lunatic dictator considered a threat to launch nuclear war? If a man with a gun threatens to kill you and your family and you point a gun to him to protect yourself and your family, how are you the aggressor in that circumstance? How are you the only one threatening to commit homicide? Kim Jong-un THREATENED US FIRST, YOU MASSIVE IMBECILE! Declaring that there’d be justified retaliation for nuclear action is not threatening nuclear war. THE INITIAL LAUNCH IS!
Regardless, he ends his article by saying the Democrats should look to simply defeat Trump at the ballot boxes instead of chasing a pipe dream. Which tells you just how desperate the Democrat Party truly is. You see, THEY CAN’T HOPE TO DO THAT! Yes, they’ll be looking to win in 2018 and 2020. That’s obvious. But their hopes can’t rest on that alone. They’re desperate to regain power in America. They want him out now. They aren’t very hopeful for 2018. Certainly not after this past year of significant elections going to Republicans.
There have been a lot of special elections over this past year. Some have happened in California, but that’s not newsworthy because it was expected that the Democrat candidate would win. But in others such as Georgia and Montana, the election was a bit more contested. The winner wasn’t going to be very obvious from the outset. Those are elections the Democrats hoped they would win, had a chance of winning but ultimately lost in.
Loss after loss tends to take its toll on the losers. They first thought Hillary would crush Trump or at the very least win, even if it was rather close. That didn’t happen. They then thought they’d crush the GOP candidates in these special elections that were actually significant and that, too, didn’t happen.
If they continue to lose in significant elections, they are right to be worried about 2018. Despite all of their b.s. polls about Trump’s popularity, he’s stronger now than he was when he first ran or even won the presidency. I know that there are certain once “Never Trumpers” such as Mark Levin who have changed their tone about Trump since he took office. He’s proven that he’s a conservative man who is working hard every day to Make America Great Again.
And the more the Left attacks Trump, the more his supporters embrace him. More than that, more and more people JOIN him.
He’s grown stronger while the Democrats have grown weaker. That’s why they’re banking so much on impeachment. It’s their best chance of defeating Trump – which, given what the article of the New Republic tells us, is a rather pathetic chance in and of itself.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
