IMPEACHMENT? WHO ARE THEY TRYING TO KID?

Back in June, I wrote a column titled, “Is Impeachment Truly Necessary?” In it, I pointed out in our nearly 250 years of existence as a Republic, no sitting US president has ever been removed from office through impeachment; this includes Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, the only two presidents ever impeached. Both went right back to work after the Senate voted them not guilty of charges, and both completed their term of office.

Impeachment has changed from a legitimate tool to remove someone from office, to a political tool to besmirch the character of someone, thereby hampering their chances for getting re-elected. Such is what the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives hope to do with Republican President Donald Trump.

There is virtually no way Mr. Trump will be removed from office based on what the Democrats have at this time. The Republican-led Senate will quickly dismiss the charges when they are presented to them. The Democrats already know this, but want to embarrass the president and hopefully create some form of national angst over his impeachment. Normally I would say this is a brilliant tactic, but people already understand this is being done for political purposes only, not because the president has done anything shamelessly wrong. The people pressing this are those who simply detest the president and are still angry he was elected over the candidate of the Democrats in 2016.

Timing will be critical, and the Democrats will want to drag this out as long as possible, so the actual charges will likely not surface until the new year, just as the primaries are beginning. Again, the Democrats hope to ride the national discontent to victory in November.

There is just one problem. It will not work.

Those that are angry at the President will stay that way, and those who are not, will certainly not change their minds. Those remaining have already had enough of the Mueller investigation and Fake News, and will take little interest in impeachment hearings. They simply want to see the Congress tend to the nation’s business, which is what they sent them there for, not to play political games. In all likelihood, the 116th Congress will go down in history as one of the most ineffectual sessions, doing nothing for the American people they are supposed to serve. It is for this reason alone, the Democrats will lose the 2020 election, both the White House and the Congress.

So, instead of harming the political chances of the president, Mr. Trump knows this will only hurt his opposition. Instead of being embarrassed, his swagger to “drain the swamp” will increase. In other words, an impeachment of the president will be the best thing that could happen as the American populace will see it as the charade it is and drive the Democrats out of the House. This will damage the Democrats for years to come.

In the end, will the Democrats impeach the president? As I said at the start of the 116th Congress, of course they will as they cannot resist temptation, and besides, they have nothing else to do.

Keep the Faith!

    Anyone with a reasoning brain has known this is all butthurt political theater, but soooo many on the left are 100% sold that Trump is totally going to get removed via impeachment. It’s frightening how mindless they are, believing a lie because they just want it to be true.

    “They will never vote to impeach in the House. This will open everything they have done during the Senate hearings and they will all be exposed and many will go to jail and they know it.”

    Criticism of political tactics, and their success or failure, is mostly a day to day measurement, though, in this case, it concerns the advisability of an impeachment proceeding. That issue is worthy of discussion of course, but it misses a longstanding point: the character, or lack of same, the competence, or lack of same, and the enduring embarrassment, and yes, shame, brought upon high office by this President. Would that it were otherwise in the eyes of many Americans, not to mention the eyes of the world. Whether or not impeachment is successful, the outcome of such a proceeding does nothing to alter the damning evidence that is already in the record, and available for open minds to consider.

      Interesting. Your concept of shame is certainly not the same as mine. It’s a shame we have tolerated the shenanigans of the Washington establishment for so long. Finally, an outsider has come in to dispense with the good old boy network there. This is why he was elected and why I say everyday, “Thank God for Donald Trump.” Now in terms of embarrassments, I think the Democrats have this won hands down. They are counting on an uninformed public, particularly in history and civics, so they can be more easily manipulated. Although I cannot imagine the Democrats winning in 2020, I pose the question next week, what if they do (next Thursday, Oct 10th). Stay tuned.

    Good article.  Keep up War on words.  Change “illegals aliens” classification to “illegal immigrants” then the police can continue to help ICE . These people  are not aliens since they are on this Earth.  Aliens are from other than Earth. War on words – Mark

    “Socialist Democrats lie, lie, lie with this whole phony impeachment inquiry knowing the lamestream media will immediately report everything they say as the truth including the “parody” opening statement of Rep Adam Schiff, Chair House Intelligence Committee which was all lies.”
