With the Democrats jumping the shark with this latest attempt to smear President Trump as having committed a crime (none can be found and they have to make stuff up) and seeking to launch an impeachment inquiry before either the Ukraine phone call transcript or the whistleblower complaint were released, it’s quite obvious that Nancy Pelosi has completely lost control of the Democrat Party in the House of Representatives, which is the reason Trump tweeted that she was no longer the House Speaker (which the humorless Left considered to be an official declaration from him that he doesn’t have the power to do and not a joke at Pelosi’s expense).
Along this decision to launch an impeachment inquiry that will ultimately backfire on the Left harder than the Russian collusion hoax (just as little evidence of wrongdoing and tons of made-up bullcrap made to smear the President won’t get rid of Trump, I can assure you), Pelosi told The Texas Tribune CEO and co-founder Evan Smith that it didn’t matter if the Democrats lost the House in 2020.
Smith first said: “I want to ask you… heading into the next election cycle, do you have any anxiety at all about any of the stuff we’re talking about or anything that we’re not talking about impacting your ability to hold control of the House in 2020?”
Pelosi replied: “Doesn’t matter… Our first responsibility is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Yeah, right. If that were what you were seeking to do, you wouldn’t be launching an impeachment inquiry based on a hearsay report… before that report was even made public.
She continued: “People say you have to take a political risk doing that. That doesn’t matter. That doesn’t matter because we cannot have a President of the United States undermining his oath of office, his loyalty to his oath of office, undermining our national security, and undermining the integrity of our elections. Our elections are the fundamental point of our democracy.”
Okay, two things. First, we are not a democracy. We are a republic. Unfortunately, those two terms are used so interchangeably, even by Pelosi later on in the interview, that most people have completely forgotten what the difference is and think they are the same thing. They are not.
Second, where was this “patriotism” when Obama had the FBI spy on Trump? Where was it when Obama let 4 Americans die in Benghazi? Where was it when Obama’s IRS began to spy on conservatives? Where was it when Obama’s DOJ gave guns to the cartel? Where was it when Obama promised Medvedev that he would “have more flexibility” after the 2012 election?
Every single charge the Democrats throw at Trump has been committed by Barack Obama. Every lie they spread about Trump is a truth about Obama. Democrats didn’t care as Obama superseded the Constitution when he used an EO to bring DACA into law or when he made a nuclear deal with Iran without having Congress ratify it.
When a Democrat acts like a dictator, these people have no problem. When a Republican is in office, the Democrats will lie and say he is a dictator.
But in any case, allow me to get to the main point of this article. To reiterate, Nancy Pelosi says that it doesn’t matter if the Democrats lose the House in 2020 if Trump gets impeached. I really only have one question: if impeachment of Trump is as popular as some polls would have us believe, such as a CBS poll which says that 55% of people approve of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, why would the Democrats be in trouble of losing the House in 2020?
If impeaching Trump is as demanded as the Left claims it is, as the fake news polls claim it is, then how are the Democrats the ones at risk in 2020? You would think that if impeachment is as highly-desired by the vast majority of the American populace that the party moving forward with impeachment would be a lock-in to win the White House, the Senate, and keep the House, if not grow their majority.
Pelosi, who only a week or so ago claimed there was no way a Democrat wouldn’t win the White House in 2020, is now accepting the fact that there is a possibility the Democrats would lose the House come 2020?
These people aren’t as confident that Trump will be impeached and defeated as they might claim to be. In fact, if Al Green is anything to go by, the only reason they are looking to impeach Trump is because they KNOW he will win reelection.
While it only takes a simple majority in the House to impeach Trump, which the Democrats have, impeachment does not mean removal from office. It also doesn’t mean that Trump can’t run for reelection. The removal of Trump would have to be the Senate’s job, where a two-thirds majority, or 67 votes, would be required. And given the composition of the current Senate, that would mean a third of Republicans would have to vote in favor of removal, which is unlikely, even with traitors like Romney, Mike Lee and the others who voted against Trump’s National Emergency declaration to build the wall.
So even if the House does vote in favor of impeaching Trump, that doesn’t mean he’s defeated. It taints his presidency for sure, but it’s not the complete and utter defeat that the Democrats would want.
And again, I highly doubt that the impeachment of Trump is what most people want, as people are reading into these polls. If it were as demanded by people as these polls might claim, the Democrats would not stand to lose anything in 2020.
If you remember, I used to say that the reason Pelosi was trying to hold back against the radical Leftists in her party demanding for impeachment was because this would put Democrats in swing states at risk of losing their seats if they were forced to vote on impeachment. If you remember from an article last month where I discussed what would likely happen if Democrats were to seek to impeach Trump (granted, this was before the Russian-collusion 2.0 story came up), Democrat voters in purple states were at risk of losing voters regardless of what way they voted. Simply being forced to vote for it would mean risking their seats.
But now, Pelosi has either succumbed to the pressure from the radical Leftists in her party or she has gone full-blown TDS (likely a bit of both).
Now, launching an impeachment inquiry into Trump is not the same as holding the actual impeachment vote itself. It could also be that Pelosi is simply trying to buy some time by having an impeachment inquiry, that way they can attack Trump and she can give the radicals a little something to chew on for the time being. But I don’t know for sure why Pelosi has decided to do this, particularly given the timing of the entire thing.
It’s one thing if there is an allegation against Trump and there is a whistleblower complaint (that is nothing but hearsay, but let’s pretend it’s relatively legit for the time being) that could then be made public. But launching an impeachment inquiry before people even know the reason for it apart from fake news reports is… surprisingly short-sighted from Pelosi.
Although, the more you think about it, with what we know from the NYT, that AG Bill Barr is also trying to work with Australia (who also had a hand in the 2016 smear of Trump), it becomes clear that the purpose behind all of this the Democrats simply have no other choice. Barr might be inching closer and closer to finding the many skeletons in the Democrats' closet which could absolutely destroy them come 2020. They failed in destroying him and now, that failure might come back to bite them, if Barr finds and releases what I think he will find and release. At the end of the day, all this is is a cover up of 2016 and obstruction of justice.
But regardless of what may be the purpose behind this impeachment inquiry, one thing is certain: they are not as confident as they pretend they are that this will get rid of Trump for good. To reiterate, if this is truly what the vast majority of the American people wanted, there would be no risk for the Democrats in the House in 2020, or any other public office. Pelosi could’ve just as easily replied by saying: “I won’t even entertain that thought as it’s not possible” or simply allude to the impossibility of Democrats coming up massive losers here. But she didn’t. She acknowledged the Democrats could lose and lose big.
If this truly was the course the American people wanted to take, the Democrats would only stand to gain from launching an impeachment inquiry. I think Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrats, are seriously mischaracterizing what the will of the American people is. Not that I can blame them, with fake news polls showing what they are showing. The Democrats live and die by polls telling them they are winning and they are special. If a poll essentially gives them the green light to begin an impeachment inquiry or even formal proceedings, even if it’s nothing but fake news, these people will roll with it. They are that self-involved and narcissistic that they believe they can do no wrong and everything they do is seen as perfection by the majority of people.
But reality has to set in at one point or another. Likely, that point will be November 4th, 2020, the day after the election when a winner will have been decided.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”
