Impeachment, with an asterisk.

January 16, 2020

And so it begins.   We speak of course of the move to invalidate the will of 2016’s voters,  more formally known as the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.

Perhaps not everyone is glued to their televisions, but make no mistake, America does know the effort to overthrow the President is in its last innings.

We tend to agree that there is little to no chance that he will be removed from office, despite the animosity of certain “soft” Republicans.

And of course history will record that he was impeached, although that impeachment will itself be defined by an asterisk.

According to some Democrats, they can impeach him every week if they so choose, and certainly they have tried to do so multiple times.

They eventually got a vote on impeachment on what even some Democrats admit are at best flimsy grounds.

But the question remains:

Why?

Because they think he is morally indecent?  He has a lot of Presidential company in that crowd, even including that venerable Democrat, JFK.

Because he is in Russia’s pocket?  Only an idiot or a dyed-in-the-wool ideologue would believe that after the findings of the Mueller report.

We believe that there is more to it than that.

Call it big government devotees or socialism,  there are an alarming number of people who do not believe in government by the people, for the people. Rather, they believe in government OF the people, not as a political theory,  but in the same way the Mafia ruled Sicily.

Yes they do hate Trump, not because he was or maybe even is a gigolo, or has a foul mouth, but because he derailed their plans for America.

And for that reason, we think it was more than appropriate for Nancy Pelosi to be wearing pink as she chortled her way through signing the articles of impeachment before finally releasing them to the Senate.
