In his opening statement for the impeachment mark-up Wednesday night, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said the following:
"We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems when the president threatens the very integrity of that election."
Read that again.
Clearly, Democrats don’t trust American voters to do the right thing. Nadler just said exactly that. Forget trying to get rid of the Electoral College. Turns out that it’s much easier to just run duly elected Donald J. out of town on an impeachment rail. But we’ve gotta do it before all you deplorable rubes get a chance to re-elect him in 2020.
The fact that they no longer care who knows it might be the scariest part of this entire debacle.
For 3 years, everyone has been fretting over Russian election meddling, and rightly so. But what about the Democrat Party? They’ve elevated election meddling to an art form that makes Putin and the Russians look like rank amateurs by comparison. It is a back-to-the-future impeachment that, if successful, will overturn the 2016 election while pre-empting the 2020 election at the same time. By way of a morally relativistic sidebar, we’re talking pure evil genius here.
House Democrats yakked up two Articles of Impeachment:
Article One — Abuse of Power.
Article Two — Obstruction of Congress.
If they were even a little honest, the Articles of Impeachment would look like this:
Article One — We hate Trump and do not accept the results of the 2016 election.
Article Two — We do not believe we can legitimately win the 2020 election.
If House Democrats vote to impeach, the bar for that most important Constitutional remedy for “Treason, Bribery or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors” will have been lowered severely, perhaps irreparably. Going forward, impeachment will simply be a bludgeon to whack your political opponent over the head. Investigations will be endless, and governance of, by, and for the people will be all but over.
In fact, Democrats are already signaling that that is their game plan. In a recent C-Span interview, Congressman Al Green, who has a full-blown, stage-four case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, said: “I would also say this for your viewers, for edification purposes, a president can be impeached more than once.” He went on to add: “There is no limit on the number of times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president, no limit to the number of times the House can vote to impeach or not a president.”
Not to be outdone, Karen Bass (D-CA), who sits on the Judiciary Committee, stated in an interview with TMZ that if Trump wins in 2020, Democrats will just move to impeach him again.
This is an adolescent response to losing fair and square.
Back in 1787, when asked by concerned citizens what type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin is said to have replied: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
The Democrat Party is willing to burn everything down before conceding defeat. Fortunately, there is one legitimate, adult remedy to this, and that is to vote them out of power and re-take the House of Representatives.
Our Republic may not be perfect, but it is definitely worth keeping.
