IS THERE REALLY A CASE FOR PRES. TRUMP’S IMPEACHMENT?

Posted by Tim Bryce on October 19, 2017

BRYCE ON POLITICS

– The short answer, No.

The short answer, No. The long answer requires an explanation. First, the president can be impeached for committing “high crimes and misdemeanors.” In the case of Richard Nixon in 1974, charges were being prepared for obstruction of justice, but Nixon resigned before he could be impeached. On the other hand, Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice stemming from the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by Paula Jones. He was subsequently acquitted by the Senate. Both were embarrassing affairs, and both were politically motivated.

Today, we are hearing Democrats willing to press charges against President Donald Trump for various reasons, some claiming he obstructed justice in regards to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Others believe Trump is involved in a political relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russia to promote his business interests, his seeming determination to go to war, either with North Korea or Iran, and whatever else is bothering the Democrats at the moment. Despite all of the hyperbole of his accusers, the accusations are groundless. Nothing of substance has yet surfaced from the many Russian probes. James Comey’s actions are still being scrutinized, and even though there has been a lot of saber-rattling, the last time I checked we were still relatively at peace (aside from minor actions around the globe).

All of Mr. Trump’s detractors claim their calls for impeachment are not politically motivated. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is all about politics, just as it was with Nixon and Clinton (and, for that matter, Andrew Johnson back in the 19th century).

Since losing the 2016 presidential election, the Democrats have been in a state of denial, specifically that a Washington outsider such as Mr. Trump could win and implement an agenda in stark contrast to their own. Instead of admitting defeat, the Democrats accuse the president of foul play, even going so far as to concoct a myth about Russian influence. In reality, Mrs. Clinton and the Democrats should be investigated for selling political influence.

All of this is part of the left’s plans to try to discredit Mr. Trump and derail his agenda. Calls for impeachment are simply a farce aimed at attracting media attention but going nowhere fast. The question though remains, does anyone honestly believe they have a legitimate case against the president? Aside from the liberal zealots who would like to see this happen, No, nobody is buying it. Even the authors of such legislation know it is nothing but a charade and going nowhere fast. They simply cannot stomach his victory and are bound and determined to remove him from office before his term is over.

All of this jealous rage by the Left leads me to believe they are suffering from an acute case of penis envy. Maybe this explains their sense of inferiority and why they possess a castration complex towards Mr. Trump. Oy!

    A W.H. of Boulder, Colorado wrote…

    The current generation does not know, and the older generation has probably forgotten, but …

    Ken Starr’s Whitewater investigation – started in 1994 and he was replaced as special counsel by Robert Ray in 2000 (meaning, it was a SIX YEAR run by Starr alone) – spent something like $300 MILLION dollars to come up with NOTHING tangible. Clearly, the republicans that called for Clinton’s head were “politicians” of the same ilk as those calling for the head of Trump for similar vague and nebulous charges that will likely never be proven.

    $300 MILLION … for NOTHING. Let that sink in for a minute.

    At the same time, it was KNOWN in certain circles that many tribal schools for our Native Americans were declared “unsafe for human habitation” – meaning, they presented a CLEAR AND PRESENT danger to the health and safety of CHILDREN (not to mention the teachers and staff at the schools). The BIA at the time determined that it would take $30 Million to fix the shortcomings in the 10 worst schools that had been documented. Unfortunately, the annual maintenance and repair budget for all of BIA’s schools was like $10 Million/year, and the republican run congress wasn’t interested in increasing that budget at the time – they wanted Clinton’s head. That means that it would take BIA THREE YEARS doing nothing else but working on those 10 schools to bring them back into repair such that they no longer presented a hazard to children. AND, while they were diverting all those funds for those 10 schools, all the other schools under the BIA’s cognizance would be aging and deteriorating WITHOUT maintenance – meaning, even after those three years of dedicated funding, in all likelihood there would be another 10 schools declared unsafe for human habitation, and the cycle would start all over again. All simply because POLITICIANS were more intent on embarrassing an opposing party than taking care of their responsibilities to the citizens of this country.

    This tells you WHERE THE PRIORITIES of our politicians are. Republican, Democrat, Independent – they ALL would rather spend TIME, MONEY, PERSONNEL resources chasing after a ghost to embarrass or hopefully remove a sitting President than spend the money on ESSENTIAL services needed to protect not just the lives of citizens/constituents – but of CHILDREN. The DEMOCRATS are in the minority, and they are the “liberal” folks who SAY they care more for the downtrodden people than the republicans. Yet, it is the Republicans in Congress who control the pursestrings – and are allowing this charade to continue – MOSTLY because they are afraid if they do not, the public outcry will result in them losing control in the mid-term elections (could very well happen, regardless).

    Let that sink in for another minute.

    You can safely bet that the money being spent on the Russian investigation will make Watergate’s $300 Million look like CHUMP CHANGE (because inflation has diluted the value of the dollar over the intervening 20 years) – and we’ll likely get the same result – nothing of consequence. Think of what we COULD be doing with that money. It could be used to pay down (actually just avoid more of) the national debt. It could be used for repairs to our Navy ships that are floating death traps because funding has been sequestered for training and maintenance and upkeep. I believe the other services are having similar issues. It could even be used to repair schools around the country that urgently need upkeep to protect those children. All these things are important, but in the bigger scheme of things, are they more or less important than our political CRIES for the head of ONE PERSON? It would APPEAR from the actions of our congress that they are not.

    Our elected representatives on both sides of the aisle (and yes, even our liberal-leaning left-wing friends have an agenda that does not include “caring” for those in need) are secretly hoping that this charade will keep the public eye OFF of their manifest dereliction of duty because they can’t seem to get off their collective asses and make progress on the serious issues of the day – which is WHY the American people send them to Washington DC in the first place.

    Sadly, each election cycle, the people (electorate) show their disgust with congress by swinging the pendulum to the other side in hopes that somehow something will change. Insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over in the hopes that the results will change. The FUNDAMENTALS of our election system are what is broken, NOT the constitution, not the essentials of our government, but HOW we put people in positions of power and authority and then let them abuse it and ignore their mandates – conveniently forgetting those sins when the election comes around because we want SENIORITY in the congress to sway the budget and bring money to us instead of “the other guy.”
