The prospect of President Trump being impeached by the House of Representatives should not be surprising to people. Counter to conventional wisdom, this impeachment does not expose a corrupt president. Instead, it reveals the rot at the core of an establishment willing to abuse the system to overturn an election.
Ergo, impeachment was inevitable if we were correct in our support for Donald Trump in 2016.
If the system was as corrupt and malevolent as we had intuited through the decline of the country under Democratic rule, then of course their reaction would be to implement corrupt and malevolent mechanisms to reverse Trump’s election.
The phony Russian dossier, the actions of federal law-enforcement agencies to implement the attempted framing of a president, and the double-dipping in that toxic stew now known as the “Ukraine scandal” are efforts that were meant to lead to impeachment.
Mr. Trump’s election was more than a poke in the eye at the ruling, patronizing and malevolent establishment; it was a declaration of war against embedded politicians who think being in power is their birthright.
The shock and rejection by the establishment of the 2016 election were clear from the start. A Washington Post headline on Jan. 20, 2017, the day Mr. Trump was inaugurated, read: “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun.”
The conspirators in this debacle may tell themselves that it’s all OK because they’re using the system with which to try to overturn your election. But that’s like telling people because bull dung is on the buffet table that makes it automatically a legitimate entree.
The abusive behavior, various tantrums and lawsuits, leaks and threats, and the deliberate attempt to overturn the 2016 election by impeachment have all been proof of the vital importance of Mr. Trump’s election.
As the Democrats stumble through this outrageous abuse of our system, they are also confessing that they know they cannot win the White House in 2020.
“I have absolute certainty because we’re going to make sure it happens that we will retain the majority in the House of Representatives. What’s more serious is that he [President Trump] can’t win, that is very serious …,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told an audience while at an event hosted by The Atlantic.
It’s almost as though she’s hinting at an insurance policy to keep Mr. Trump’s reelection from happening.
Then there’s Rep. Al Green, Texas Democrat, who was even more direct about the reason behind the push for impeachment: “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected … the president does not have to commit a crime to be impeached …,” he told MSNBC.
Whatever the “insurance policy” was that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok crowed about to his paramour Lisa Page, we know it involved not having Mr. Trump as president.
The impeachment of Mr. Trump was inevitable because we were right about a system that had deliberately forgotten the men and women of this country and believe that they are the only ones that matter. This was the fight in 2016, albeit we knew the reaction to Mr. Trump would be the ultimate confirmation about the malevolence of our own government toward us.
Impeachment has always been the go-to effort, because it was the only way they could dress up the coup that became their chosen recourse. Removing Mr. Trump from office in an election year is amazingly brazen as they admit through this process that they want to remove him as a choice for voters.
This from a group of people who clearly believe they cannot win using the process the Founders established. Impeaching Mr. Trump, getting rid of the Electoral College, and even so-called “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal, are all about giving complete and total power to a small group of people who, in their delusion, believe that only they have the answers. They promote mindless policy prescriptions requiring you handing your entire life and all of your money over to these masters of the universe.
Why? Because you’re too dumb to know you can’t be trusted.
For anyone who is still on the fence about whether or not the impeachment charade reveals the rot in the Democratic Party and establishment in general, ask yourself, why are they conducting this process in secret? Interviews and hearings in private, secret accusers, no floor vote, and announcements by media and Democrats that they already have the votes for impeachment.
So really, why go through the charade of hearings in the first place? Because even they know that what they’re doing is a fraud, otherwise, why pretend? And yet, they can’t help themselves because this is what they’ve been doing for decades.
While all of this is disturbing, the fact is, it’s not new. We are simply now watching the system with the curtains pulled back, courtesy of our vote and Mr. Trump. Once again, the Trump election is exposing the inherent corruption at the foundation of our precious government. He is bearing the brunt of their rage, and we must stay focused so their corruption, and its concomitant soft coup, does not prevail.
