Impeachment Or Coup?

Friday, November 8, 2019

The New York Times reports that after five weeks of private (note: private) fact-finding an almost unified Democrat caucus has enough confidence in the severity of the underlying facts about Mr. Trump’s dealings with Ukraine to start making their case for impeachment. So what exactly are the Democrats alleging Trump did to warrant impeachment?

Clearly they’ve been trying to undermine his presidency since day one. Who could forget a very angry Maxine Waters, ranting “impeachment” since the election? Next we heard of Russian interference, then Russian collusion. Contrary to misinformation, no Americans including General Flynn and others were convicted of collusion with Russians according to Robert Mueller. That was the same Robert Muller who couldn’t provide the anti-Trump crowd with the smoking gun they promised for two years.

Then up popped a “whistleblower.” Since that person’s arrival the Trump haters have accused the president of failing to follow interagency protocols of intelligence and security in regard to the Ukraine which they say rise to the level of criminal behavior. Is this the charge on which they are basing impeachment? Will the American people follow that “logic?” Looking more closely at their latest round of waggery, a pattern of behavior is emerging similar to the dossier story, firing federal attorneys (bet you forgot that one), the collusion and obstruction tales and even the Kavanaugh nomination.

Failing with earlier efforts, Rep. Adam Schiff convened secret tribunals to brew up something, anything to get a vote of impeachment. Republicans were even banned from hearings as was any semblance of due process. Then Nancy Pelosi asked over 200 Democrats in Congress to rhetorically swear to a resolution attested to by Schiff. But wait! Didn’t he promise for two years to produce evidence of Russian collusion when he didn’t have any? Didn’t he fall for two Russian comedians’ prank phone call promising to get dirt on Trump? This guy’s got a pathetic track record, but they don’t care.

Democrats withheld the whistleblower’s identity, although there is strong speculation now that he is a member of the Deep State with strong connections to Joe Biden. We do know that attorney Mark Zaid, who has publicly admitted to be the unknown whistleblower’s attorney, has a real history of anti-Trump tweets and TV appearances. In 2017 Zaid said, “a coup has started” against Trump and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”

How much clearer to the American people does it need to be to see what this crowd is up to? It’s just another in a string of tricks to undo the 2016 election by a divided party that wants to tax us into dependent poverty and regulate us into their web of political correctness.

Like it or not Donald Trump is all that is standing in their way. It’s apparent they will stop at nothing to destroy him. That’s because their presidential candidates are so dismal they’ve got to do something, anything. It’s laughable with all the class warfare the Democrats spew for another of their billionaires, Bloomberg, to now be jumping into the fray.

So ask yourselves, is it a legitimate impeachment or like Mark Zaid, obviously a key player here said, a coup?

Salary Increases Needed, Alinsky Tactics Are Not

I have advocated and fought for increases in teacher salaries for educators over the decades. Beyond mere rhetoric, I actually talk to those policymakers at the state level who set the budget which largely determines salaries.
