On Tuesday, President Trump took to Twitter to accuse the Democrat’s impeachment efforts as a “coup.” Truer words could not have been spoken. Even before this latest Twitter barrage of truth, some people like Kamala Harris have been urging Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to remove the rightfully elected President of the United States from the platform altogether. THAT is what the Democrats are all about- silencing the truth.
One does not know exactly what the “high crimes and misdemeanors” are that Trump committed that would lead to his removal from office. Supposedly it is about a June 25th telephone call between the Ukrainian president and Trump involving an investigation into Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election and the possible role played by then-vice president Joe Biden. Yet three Democrat Senators had written a letter to the Ukrainian government requesting that they comply with an investigation into Trump by Robert Mueller. Suddenly, the leader of one country requesting an investigation on the part of another country is a “high crime and misdemeanor.”
This President has endured more hatred and vitriolic rhetoric than any president in my days on this earth. Within hours of the election, the hatred began with marches, vigils, and over-the-top rhetoric. We were treated to almost daily marches in the streets of Washington before Trump was inaugurated, before he signed any Executive Orders, initiated any policy, made a judicial nomination or put ketchup on a presidential steak.
We on the Right could kind of suspect this would be the reaction, but we underestimated how low they would go. With Kavanaugh, they trotted out a woman from the man’s high school days to make scurrilous accusations that could not be proven and, quite frankly, sounded like a bad teenage novel. They twisted and contorted and took words out of context when someone was killed in Charlottesville, Virginia. Every mass shooting in the United States has been left at the feet of Trump. A joint news conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland was supposedly a selling-out of America despite the fact Trump has probably been light-years ahead with tough sanctions against Russia and dealing with their aggression in Ukraine. With ISIS largely decimated, does the Trump administration get any credit? Every action is challenged in a Leftist-leaning court tying the hands of the administration since the wheels of justice move slowly. It is all by design.
Yet, look at the accomplishments of the administration despite the obstruction by Democrats in Congress. Even things both sides can mutually agree upon, besides the naming of a post office, are often shrouded in acrimony and unrealistic demands. Just in the area of regulation, the accomplishments are very real and tangible. Of course, there have been setbacks with the largest being Obamacare. But in that case, this writer believes the hearts of the Republicans (or some of them) in Congress were just not in that fight. Both sides agree on the inherent need for immigration reform, yet every effort has been torpedoed not by Trump, but from unrealistic demands from the Democrats. To prove how low they have gone, they trotted out pictures of detainment centers from the Obama administration and attributed them to Trump.
Robert Mueller could not deliver the goods, so now it is a phone call between two world leaders where there is, according to the official transcript of that call, absolutely no evidence of a quid pro quo with respect to a common request between two countries.
As stated, we can expect these actions from the Left, but what is most perturbing is those self-righteous virtue-signalers on the Right who have jumped on the OrangeManBad bandwagon. These so-called conservatives finally have a President who is willing to stand up to the Left, to go on the attack and, most importantly, try to enact a genuinely conservative agenda, but what have they done? They have jumped ship and sided with the Democrats over some bizarre set of “principles.” I have said this before: what good are principles without action? Answer: thoughts in a mind and words on paper. It appears that the only principle of these people (roughly characterized as NeverTrumpers) was talking, cower, then play the martyr. They are the “Well, we tried, folks, so just keep reading my article in the Washington Post” crowd.
In short, they are losers and they wallow in their defeat.
BUT, this latest effort by the Democrats to impeach Trump is realistically likely to end in a humiliating defeat. There will be too many Democrats who hail from districts or states that Trump won in 2016 and where his approval ratings are still high. Should it reach that point, their votes on impeachment will determine whether they return to Congress in 2021 or not. The same can be said for those Republicans who will tell you they are keeping an open mind and let’s just see where the evidence leads. “Keeping an open mind” with regards to a Trump impeachment inquiry is the same as surrender. To paraphrase, “There is no there, there.”
Instead, the intent is obvious. It is to keep their supposed controversy front-and-center through a presidential campaign in 2020.
This presents a unique opportunity for real conservatives. This is where we separate the men from the wimpish boys and relegate the Vichy Republicans and the so-called moderate Democrats (said jokingly) to the dustbin of history.
The United States Congress does not need to impeach President Donald Trump. The American voters need to impeach Congress in 2020 by tossing out Democrats and their Republican allies in both houses of Congress. Despite anyone’s reservations about Trump’s conservative credentials before the election of 2016, he has proven himself to be more conservative in action and words than the self-anointed guardians of conservatism.
Trump’s Tweet states:
As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!
Truer words were never spoken. That is what is at stake in 2020. If you want to persist with the principles, but no action, then, by all means, sit it out or vote for the Democrat. But do not call yourself “conservative.”
