BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN, & ANN'S MEGA DUB & THE COMMON ILLS -- THE KOOL AID TABLE
IF YOU THOUGHT JOE BIDEN'S CABINET COULDN'T GET ANY WORSE, YOU DON'T KNOW JOE!
ALREADY WAR CRIMINALS AND WALL STREET CROOKS -- SAMANTHA POWER, ANTONY BLINKEN, AVRIL HAINES, ETC -- AND HUMAN ODDITY AND TOXIC PERSON NEERA TANDEN AS WELL AS ALEJANDRO I-LOCK-UP-CHILDREN MAYORKAS LITTER HIS SORID INCOMING CABINET.
BUT REALIZING THE LACK OF ENTHUSIASM FOR JOE CONTINUES AND THAT HE HAS NO ENERGY TO PUSH MUCH OF ANYTHING, HIS TOP ADVISORS ARE PROPOSING ANOTHER CABINET ADDITION: DONALD TRUMP.
THE WAY THIS WOULD WORK OUT IS DONALD WOULD SERVE IN THE NEW POSITION OF SECRETARY OF DISTRACTION. AS SECRETARY, TRUMP WOULD CONTINUE TO TWEET DAILY IN ORDER TO MANUFACTURE OUTRAGE WHICH WOULD -- AS IT HAS THE LAST FOUR YEARS -- ALLOW CONGRESS TO POSTURE AND PREEN WHILE ACTUALLY DOING NOTHING TO HELP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI REPLIED, "I AM FULLY ON BOARD WITH THIS PROPOSAL AND LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER FOUR YEARS OF HOLLOW GRANDSTANDING."
How was Donald Trump given power by this latest impeachment -- a few ask referring to the comments at the end of yesterday's snapshot. How?
This goes beyond today. Way beyond and so many can't see beyond a 24 hour news cycle.
But Donald Trump's now historic. He's been impeached by the House twice and, guess what, not removed from office either time.
And history will see it as such and wonder why? Was Donald that strong? Was he that powerful?
One hundred years from now, people are going to be making calls and it appears the calls will be an ineffectual Congress was unable to take out a president twice impeached in one four year term.
He has historical power.
He was also given power by the nonsense of impeachment itself.
Was there a reason to impeach him? There were several possible grounds to impeach him on. But what Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House went with was ridiculous. I could see an argument for Donald being a clear and present danger -- and I made that point last Friday:
The argument here could be (a) he is a clear and present danger so we must take up the American people's time with this. That's your only pro-impeachment argument. Unless someone comes up with something else, that's really it. And that approach would justify a real trial -- because we would need to determine whether or not Donald was now a clear and present danger to the country.
If your issue is just what took place on one day in DC, some will respond that the day is already over, what's the point? He is gone in 12 days, what's the point?
To justify using time on impeachment at this point -- the House to quickly vote, the Senate to have a trial -- which would include Donald being able to call all the witnesses he wanted and his attorney arguing on behalf of Donald -- which would probably be a long trial -- you'd need a charge like Donald remaining in office for less than two weeks is a clear and present danger to the United States.
Nancy Pelosi ending up mouthing the words but she didn't make the argument why. She refused to build a case in the Articles for that.
Could a charge have been made on clear and present danger? Yes, a credible one could have been made. But they didn't do that.
Instead they want to say that Donald Trump incited what took place. Legal defitinions of incitement and sedition and insurrection were all tossed aside. I don't know what ridiculous definition of "coup" they're using -- it's not a legal definition and it's not a political science definition.
I guess it's a clutch-the-pearls definition?
The hysteria was ecnouraged and people frothed at the mought and it was all a bunch of nonsense. Quoting Keesha again, last week in DC was an unruly mob storming the halls of Congress. That's all it was. It was not a terrorist attack. It was not a coup. It was not an issurrection.
But they want to turn it into that and pretend that somehow Donald Trump made remarks advocating or violence. No, he didn't. And while bad journalism can selectively quote Donald, a hearing is supposed to examine the full remarks.
By refusing to do their job, they gave Donald power. And by wasting everyone's time, they gave him power. If you wanted to impeach him, make a solid argument for it. Otherwise, you just look tiny and petty. You look ignorant and stupid.
And that's the House of Representatives.
It also empowers future impeachments because it really doesn't matter. Bringing impeachment against a president and failing to remove him from office no longer matters. Mindless idiots will cheer you on and pretend you did something when you did nothing.
