Franklin Graham Compares 10 House Republicans Who Voted for 2nd Trump Impeachment to Judas Iscariot

I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.
– Ronald Reagan reports that

The Rev. Franklin Graham took to social media to slam the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, comparing them to the infamous Judas Iscariot.

“Shame, shame on the ten Republicans who joined with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in impeaching President Trump yesterday,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. “The House Democrats impeached him because they hate him and want to do as much damage as they can. And these ten, from his own party, joined in the feeding frenzy. It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that Speaker Pelosi promised for this betrayal.”

By referencing “thirty pieces of silver,” Graham seemed to be suggesting that the 10 House Republicans who supported Trump’s impeachment were akin to Judas Iscariot, a disciple of Jesus Christ who betrayed him to the Roman authorities in exchange for 30 pieces of silver.

While Graham did not mention them by name, the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump were Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., Rep. Peter Meijer, R-Mich., Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

According to Graham, these Republicans’ votes to impeach the president for “incitement of insurrection” constituted a betrayal because of “all that he has done for this country.”

“We have never had a president like him in my lifetime. He gave us lower taxes, a strong economy, and low unemployment. He made NATO take notice and pay their own way. He had the guts to take on North Korea and meet with their leader personally. He didn’t let China walk all over us. Just his Mideast peace initiatives in the last couple of months deserve a Nobel Peace Prize,” he said.

“He has defended religious liberty like no president before him, and that matters to all people of faith. He has worked to bring prison reform and secured our southern border. He defeated the ISIS caliphate in Syria, and he strengthened our military. He was also the most pro-life president we have ever had.”

“The Democrats have been trying to get rid of the president since the day he took office. What they did yesterday only further divides our nation. I hope President-elect Biden will keep his word and work for unity as he has said,” he concluded. Graham has called for Trump, whose term expires Jan. 20, to meet with President-elect Joe Biden, contending that such a meeting would “begin the healing and preparation for a smooth transition.”

He also requested that Vice President-elect Harris as well as Biden’s and Harris’ respective spouses be invited to the meeting.

In addition to praising the president’s record, Graham announced that he took issue with “some of the things the president said and did the last couple of weeks,” referring to Jan. 6 as “a low point in his presidency.”

On Jan. 6, hundreds of fringe Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was certifying the electoral college votes of the 2020 presidential election, unleashing violence and vandalism that left five people dead.

The events of Jan. 6 ultimately led to the president’s impeachment, as House Democrats argued that a speech he gave to his supporters urging them to continue protesting the election results incited them to resort to violence.

Violence at the Capitol erupted while Trump was still speaking to hundreds of thousands of his supporters at the Ellipse near the White House before they were to walk to the Capitol for a separate rally where other speakers were scheduled to speak. That event, however, never took place because the riot had already ensued.

Graham condemned the violence, remarking that he was “deeply saddened by what took place in our nation’s capital.”

“Our country is in trouble. We need God’s healing and we need God’s help. Pray for peace and the protection of our nation. Let’s come together — on our knees,” he added.

Unfortunately, Rev. Graham, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

It is going to be impossible for 74 million Americans to forgive Joe Biden, his handlers, and the rest of the Democrat Elite for stealing the 2020 Presidential Election and leaving them disenfranchised.

This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, which Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.

And the thing is, it is not his fault.

The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.

It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.

The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war not just against the Chinese Coronavirus, but also against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels and our country’s failing Liberal Newspapers like the New York Times. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the riots and escalating murder rates in our Democratically-controlled major cities every night, to those so filled with hate that they rough up a 7 year-old boy simply because he is wearing a Trump baseball cap, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Now, more than ever, facing the aftermath of a rigged Presidential Election and an ongoing Chinese Coronavirus pandemic, our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday as we finish watching church services on the internet via our Smart TVs.

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”

Because believe me, Americans…we are in one with three enemies. Two enemies are invisible and one is political.

And, while we can do all things through the One who strengthens us, we can do nothing worthwhile without Him.

Pray for those who are out “on the front line” fighting the Chinese Coronavirus every day and caring for those who are sick with it,

Pray for President Donald J. Trump and his family.

Pray for our country.

And, please God, protect America from those who would attempt to make us worship “The State” instead of You.

Pelosi and Dems Want Pence to Invoke the 25th Amendment Plus They Want to Impeach Trump So He Can’t Run Again

See the source image reports that

The House this week will take up a resolution to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time in less than two years over his actions encouraging a mob that stormed the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi said in a letter Sunday to House Democrats. “As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

Pelosi said Democratic leaders on Monday will request unanimous consent for a separate resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to convene the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution “to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office.” She said Pence should respond within 24 hours.

More than 200 House Democrats have signed on to co-sponsor an impeachment resolution accusing Trump of “Incitement of Insurrection,” and says he engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States” in connection with the storming of the Capitol Wednesday by throngs of his supporters.

The 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution states that

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

This amendment was put in place to ensure a legal and aboveboard transfer of power incase the President were to become incapacitated to the point to where he could not fulfill his duties.

It was never meant to be used as a political weapon by one political party to get a president in good health out of the way, disgracing him just days before his term ends.

Speaking of political weapons, regarding Nancy Pelosi’s call to impeach President Trump AGAIN…according to

At the time of ratification of the Constitution, the phrase high crimes and misdemeanors thus appears understood to have applied to uniquely political offenses, or misdeeds committed by public officials against the state. Alexander Hamilton, in explaining the Constitution’s impeachment provisions, described impeachable offenses as arising from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. Such offenses were Political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. In the centuries following the Constitution’s ratification, precisely what behavior constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor has been the subject of much debate.

Because of the vagueness of the definition of the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors”, Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite and the Vichy Republicans are using President Trump’s speech in which he invited the crowd to go and “peacefully protest” in front of the Capitol Building as a means to ensure that he can not run for President in 2024 and kick their butts again.

I cannot even imagine what it must have been like for President Trump and his family to have been subjected to the treatment which they have received since he declared that he was going to run for President.

I have never seen a United States President and his family subjected to the degradation and barbaric treatment which Donald J. Trump and his family have had to endure.

And now, after the Democrats and their Vichy Republican stooges have succeeded in driving Trump from office via means of an obviously rigged election, they want to pile on, in a display of tone-deaf arrogance that makes their cries for “unity” hysterically funny…if they weren’t so maddeningly sickening.

I believe that Pelosi and that bunch of losers who consider themselves to be “the smartest people in the room” are trying to goad average Americans living in the Heartland into another Civil War.

At this point, anything is possible.

Pelosi Tells “60 Minutes” That Trump Should Be Prosecuted and that “Nothing is Off the Table”

See the source image

“If Fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the form of Liberalism.” – Ronald Reagan, “60 Minutes”, 1975 reports that

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump should be prosecuted and that “nothing is off the table” in an interview with 60 Minutes to be televised Sunday.

Pelosi and fellow Democrats have called for Trump’s impeachment in the aftermath of Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol.

“Sadly, the person that’s running the Executive branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous president of the United States,” Pelosi said in an excerpt aired Friday on the “CBS Evening News.”

“And we’re only a number of days until we can be protected from him. But he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him.”

Demonstrators protesting the presidential election results stormed the Capitol building during a joint session of Congress that met to certify the Electoral College votes. Earlier in the day, Trump addressed a rally of supporters and told them, “We will never give up. We will never concede.”

The president and his supporters have said alleged voter fraud resulted in Joe Biden winning the election. Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.

Pelosi, speaking with correspondent Lesley Stahl, said action should be taken against Trump despite only days remaining for his administration.

The 25th Amendment allows for removing the president from office if the vice president and a majority of the president’s cabinet or Congress agree to the action. Vice President Mike Pence was said to be opposed to invoking the amendment.

It was suggested to Pelosi the 25th Amendment was off the table.

“No, it isn’t,” she said. “Nothing is off the table.”

Three House Democrats said they plan to introduce an article of impeachment against Trump on Monday for incitement of insurrection.

Why are Pelosi and her fellow members of the Washington Swamp so intent on harming a departing President?

According to the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh

“The four-year coup, the four-year effort to get the election results of 2016 overturned, there are all kinds of people who broke the law, all kinds of people who are quaking in their boots,” he added. “They’re worried silly that Trump is gonna unleash some of these classified documents.”

Limbaugh also said the establishment is “terrified” that Trump will pardon people dangerous to them.

“The people in the Washington establishment, why did they want to stop Trump in the first place? Because they didn’t want what they have been up to (which is no good) for years to ever come out,” said Limbaugh. “They’re worried to death that he’s got a card or two to play here yet, including the pardon power.”

He added that there was likely a “big sigh of relief” when Trump said he would not go to Biden’s inauguration.

“Imagine if he decided to release a bunch of classified documents right before the inauguration ceremony,” said Limbaugh.

Normally, the Senate would be using the next few weeks to hold hearings on Biden’s cabinet choices, Limbaugh also said, so they can be confirmed by senators on Inauguration day, but not this year.

“Two long, nervous weeks for the Democrats,” Limbaugh said. “Major potential power vacuum. They are scared, folks. Do not doubt me on this.”

Another theory going around is that San Fran Nan believes that President Trump has the laptop which was taken from her  office in the Capitol Building.

I am certain that whoever has it, unless it is encrypted will find things that would not cast a good light on Pelosi or her fellow Democrats and probably some of the Vichy Republicans, as well.

Either theory, or both, could be true.

I believe that she is just plain mean and vindictive…and a Marxism-loving fascist, too.

The entire Democratic Party has gone so far to the left of the Political Spectrum that they believe that only they have a right to speak their opinions and decide the future of our Sovereign Nation.

Look at what has happened in the last three days.

Twitter has banned Trump and his Team, suspended the accounts of other high profile Conservatives, and taking tens of thousands of followers away from others.

When any totalitarian system of government takes over a country, the first thing that they do is to silence all dissension, any means necessary.

In the case of the Far Left Democrat-supporting Bit Tech Oligarchs like Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, I means turning his Social Media Giant, Twitter, into a Democrat Echo Chamber.

And, just last night, it was learned that Amazon intends to suspend Parler from its Host Server.

Are you scared? mad? paying attention?

You better be.

The Republicans had better grow some spines immediately and stand up against this attack on our Freedom of Speech.

They and this country are finding out the hard way that President Ronald Regan was exactly right when he said,

To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

MSM “Clutch Their Pearls” Over Trump’s “Victory Celebration”

DCEV103-26_2020_133758 reports that

President Trump’s White House speech on Thursday featured everything from calling the Russia investigation “bulls—t” to friendly ribbing of prominent GOP allies, all while agitating many members of the mainstream media who found a multitude of issues with the East Room event.

The Senate on Wednesday acquitted the president on both articles of impeachment following a weeks-long trial, and Trump described Thursday’s speech as a “celebration.” He was greeted by thunderous applause and a standing ovation by his supporters as many reporters immediately took to Twitter to criticize the process. Many negatively compared the scene to a campaign rally, while CNN’s Jim Acosta complained that it sounded like the president was “answering the questions he wishes reporters would ask.”

New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait ruminated that Trump probably wanted to make similar remarks during Tuesday’s State of the Union but was reined in by staffers.

“Seems extremely likely Trump wanted to get his grievances off his chest in SOTU, and aides prevailed on him to save it for special post-acquittal speech, promised him ‘Hail to the Chief’ and a full room,” Chait wrote.

The president thanked his supporters and legal team, called the impeachment process “evil,” complimented the physique of Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise became more “handsome” after being shot and even praised the “incredible” deep voice of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, during the celebratory speech. But when he described the Russia investigation as “bulls—t,” liberal critics really turned up the heat.

Walter Shaub called Trump “a disgrace to the office,” NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell seemed to disapprove he used the term in the East Room, CNN’s Keith Boykin called for the “civility police” and dozens of other reporters chimed in to condemn the comment.

As Trump’s detractors complained about the foul language, supporters quoted him as if it was a badge of honor. New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi, a frequent CNN guest, even urged people to stop “pearl clutching” over the remark.

“I’m sure there are plenty of other things to take issue with here,” she wrote. “The fact that this president curses shouldn’t be very high on the list. Grow up.”

Meanwhile, CNN’s Chris Cillizza called it “appalling,” while his colleague Joe Lockhart even suggested that the president is suffering from some sort of illness.

“People really should find the answer of why Trump had an unscheduled emergency trip to Walter Reed a few months ago,” Lockhart tweeted. ‘My guess is it had something to do with today’s performance.”

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck put together a montage of CNN personalities bashing the speech.

“The story is not the particulars of what he said. The story is he sounded nuts. I don’t see why the media has such trouble explaining that,” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote.

CNN’s chyron labeled the speech polarizing speech “vindictive & vulgar,” which has been praised by Trump supporters but mocked by critics.

Ask me if I care.

The Main Stream Media stopped being objective a long, long time ago.

Just like the “dancing monkeys” out in Hollyweird, the Main Stream Media are nothing nowadays but the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

The geniuses in the MSM seem to forget that President Donald J. Trump is not a professional politician.

He is a businessman.

He does not follow political protocol.

Yes, he knows how to conduct himself among Heads of State. He has conducted business all around the world.

He is a straight shooter. That is why average Americans between the coasts are going to reelect him in a political landslide.

They’re tired of taking a back seat to “political expediencies”.

Yesterday, President Trump was doing what every good CEO does after his team achieves a major success.

He thanks them.

Yes, he called the attempted coup by the Democrats “Bullsh*t” because that is exactly what it was.

What did the Democrat sycophants in the MSM expect him to say,

“Thank you for Impeaching me over unimpeachable charges.” ?

Let’s face it. The Main Stream Media are clutching their pearls and Pelosi and company are experiencing a group psychological break because of three basic facts:

  1. Trump is fulfilling his Campaign Promises in spite of everything they have thrown at him to stop him.
  2. He fights back.
  3. He will be reelected.

The Main Stream Media are truly living up to the name that the President gave them:

Congressional Democrats Have “The Sads” After Trump’s Acquittal…Good!

pelosi-ripped-li-600 reports that

The Senate overwhelmingly acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial, in a historic rejection of Democrats’ claims that the president’s Ukraine dealings and handling of congressional subpoenas merited his immediate removal from office.

Several Congressional Democrats, speaking to Fox News, were dejected on Capitol Hill late Wednesday, even as they said they hoped to weaponize the acquittal votes by several moderate Republicans in swing states.

“We all knew how this was going,” one senior House Democratic source told Fox News. “But everyone’s depressed. Especially because of Iowa,” where the first-in-the-nation caucuses have been plagued by mismanagement.

Another Democratic source also said that impeachment “went as well as it could go.” There was significant consternation among House Democrats about heading down the impeachment road at all over the summer, Fox News is told, but Democratic leaders felt they had to get in front of the impeachment movement and embrace it – or they may have been steamrolled by the progressive wing of the party.

In the final vote, all Democratic senators supported convicting the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, including swing-vote moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Doug Jones, D-Ala.

The only party defection was on the abuse of power charge from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who declared hours before the final vote that Trump had engaged in as “destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine.” Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge.

By a final vote of 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 against conviction on the obstruction charge, the Senate fell far short of the two-thirds, 67-vote supermajority needed to convict and remove the president. Swing-vote Republican senators — including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee — voted to acquit on both counts.

The separate obstruction of Congress charge concerned the White House’s assertion of executive privilege and refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas. Romney explained he would acquit on the obstruction count, saying House Democrats had chosen not to respond to the White House’s legal arguments against the subpoenas.

After Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts formally declared Trump acquitted, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., presented him with the “Golden Gavel” award as a thank-you for his service. Former Chief Justice of the United States William Rehnquist received the same award, which is usually presented to freshmen senators after long hours presiding over the body, for his handling of President Bill Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial.

“I look forward to seeing you all again under happier circumstances,” Roberts said as he concluded his remarks and prepared to depart the chamber.

Speaking to reporters after the vote, McConnell noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had resisted calls for impeachment from the party’s progressive wing before finally caving — and said she should have trusted her “instincts.”

“I’m pretty sure she didn’t want to do this,” McConnell said, referring to Pelosi’s lengthy reluctance to initiate impeachment proceedings. Trump, speaking to Fox News ahead of the Super Bowl, made a similar argument, saying the “radical” wing of the Democratic Party had pushed her into making a grave mistake and realizing her “worst nightmare.”

McConnell also said he was “perplexed” by Democrats’ arguments that the evidence against Trump was overwhelming and obvious, but at the same time, more witnesses and evidence were desperately needed.

He called the proceedings a “thoroughly political exercise,” and added that ironically, Pelosi was right “in the beginning” when she didn’t want to go down this path.

“This was a political loser for them,” McConnell said. “At least in the short-term, this has been a colossal political mistake.”

A Gallup poll released this week showed record-high approval numbers for Trump and the Republican Party in general, suggesting the impeachment proceedings may have backfired politically for Democrats. The Republican Party’s approval numbers were at their highest since 2005, and Trump’s were the highest of his presidency.

I am glad that Congressional Democrats are upset after the just acquittal of President Donald J. Trump in the Senate Impeachment Trial yesterday.

After what they have put this country through for the last 3 years they deserve to be upset.

God knows, average Americans have been.

Did they not understand what the result of the 2016 Presidential Election was all about?

It wasn’t about the Russians.

It wasn’t about the Ukrainians.

It was about average Americans, living between the coasts, who had finally had enough of the Far Left Democratic Party trying to radically change the greatest country on God’s green Earth into another Venezuela.

Average Americans were tired of being called close-minded, xenophobic, homophobic misogynists for believing in traditional American Faith and Values.

They were also tired of listening to our country and our heritage being insulted by those who were supposed to be its biggest advocates.

Average Americans were tired of the tyranny of the minority.

However, the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of President of the United States of America was more than just a protest vote.

It was an affirmation of the charge to keep given to us by those who came before…those who suffered and sacrificed in order to ensure that their children and their children’s children would “have it better” than they had.

Americans were tired of the empty promises of professional politicians.

So, we elected a Citizen Statesman, a successful businessman and entrepreneur, who knew how to get things done.

However, even before Trump took office, the Democrats decided that they could not leave the decision as to who should be president up to average Americans.

Therefore, they began attacking Trump, both covertly and overtly, through the use of Deep State Operatives and a willing Main Stream Media.

That led to made up charges concerning Russian interference on behalf of the Trump Campaign, which lead to a Special Counsel being appointed and Phase 1 of a taxpayer-funded Witch Hunt.

When that failed, House Democrats took a phone call made between the presidents of two Sovereign Nations and attempted to remove the President of the United States of America over it…when there was nothing impeachable in it.

And now, that’s failed.

I have no idea what the arrogant anti-American cowards will attempt next.

However, I do know what must be done in ten months from now.

President Trump MUST be reelected and the Far Left Democrats in the House of Representatives MUST be voted out of office.

That is the only way to ensure that this effort to overturn the will of the American People will be stopped.

The tyranny of the minority must not be allowed to ruin the greatest country on the face of the Earth because of their love for a political philosophy which failed in every country in which it is tried.

God bless America.

“The Art of the Deal”: Closing Arguments Monday, SOTU Tuesday, Acquittal Wednesday


“One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow. There are people—I categorize them as life’s losers—who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.” – Donald J. Trump, “The Art of the Deal” reports that

Republicans in the Senate secured enough votes Friday evening to reject Democratic efforts to extend the impeachment trial of President Trump and call new witnesses, paving the way for his widely expected acquittal next week on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said late Friday he expects to “conclude the trial in the coming days” as the Senate approved the framework to continue the trial on Monday, with a final up-or-down vote on Wednesday.

After hours of debate during the day on Friday, the Senate voted 51-49 to block a Democratic motion to call new witnesses. The vote came after vehement demands from Democrats to call former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about the Trump-Ukraine saga. Two Republicans — Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Maine Sen. Susan Collins — voted with Democrats.

“A majority of the U.S. Senate has determined that the numerous witnesses and 28,000-plus pages of documents already in evidence are sufficient to judge the House Managers’ accusations and end this impeachment trial,” McConnell said after the vote.

Democrats decried the failure of the motion.

“America will remember this day, unfortunately, where the Senate did not live up to its responsibilities, where the Senate turned away from truth and went along with a sham trial,” said Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Later on Friday evening, Senate Republicans voted down four amendments offered by Democrats to call Bolton and White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, among others. Chief Justice Roberts told Schumer before that vote series that he would not break ties in the Senate, after Democrats in recent days raised the possibility Roberts could possibly tip the scales for them during votes on amendments.

“I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government, to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts told Schumer.

The vote on witnesses came as Trump was flying to Florida. A senior administration official aboard Air Force One said that the reaction to the Senate vote was “calm, but pleased.”

“Nothing like applause or cheering, but just a recognition that things are clearly going in the right direction,” the official said.

There will be no trial action over the weekend. The trial will resume Monday with closing arguments by the impeachment managers and defense counsel. Senators will have the opportunity to make speeches on Monday and Tuesday.

The final vote will come the same week as Iowa’s caucuses on Monday and the State of the Union address on Tuesday. A senior congressional source told Fox News that there has been no discussion about postponing the speech, as advance teams have been crawling all over the Capitol in preparation for Tuesday’s address.

Earlier Friday, it became apparent that Republicans had the votes to shut down any new witnesses from testifying in the trial, with Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, announcing they wouldn’t defect.

After the vote on witnesses, Trump drew attention to the number of witnesses during the House’s impeachment proceedings: “Democrats = 17 Witnesses. Republicans = 0 Witnesses.”

It came out late on Friday night that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell had talked to President Trump, who had given his okay to the timing of the final vote.

And, I can understand why he did: it’s perfect.

During the Closing Arguments on Monday, I have no doubt that Jay Sekulow and the Trump Defense Team will perform as flawlessly as they already have.

They have embarrassed the House Managers time and time again, making them look like a bunch of political hacks obsessed with removing a duly-elected President from office.

Which, of course, is exactly what they are.

After that drubbing on Monday, President Trump will address a Joint Session of Congress and deliver what promises to be a barnburner of a State of the Union Address.

One of my fellow writers at suggested that advertisers forget about the Super Bowl and buy time in the State of the Union instead.

It is going to be that good.

Who, in their right mind, can seriously argue against the accomplishments of President Donald J. Trump?

As one of his Presidential Reelection Campaign slogans says,

Promises Made. Promises Kept.

And, within that resides the very reason for the ongoing coup attempt by the Democrats to remove him from office.

Whoever they choose as their Presidential Candidate does not stand a chance of defeating President Trump this November…and they know it.

But, I digress…

After what is going to be the most matched State of the Union Address in history, the Impeachment Vote will happen at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

And, President Donald J. Trump will be acquitted.

In fact, I would not be surprised at all if some of the Democrats cross over to vote for his acquittal.

Especially, if they live in a Red State and they want to be reelected to the Senate.

In 1999, Biden Argued Against Additional Witnesses in the Senate Impeachment Trial of Clinton…and Schumer Agreed!



“Sleepy Joe” just torpedoed the Democrats’ Sham Impeachment! reports that

In January 1999, then-Sen. Joe Biden argued strongly against the need to depose additional witnesses or seek new evidence in a memo sent to fellow Democrats ahead of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial.

Biden circulated the four-page document, titled “Arguments in Support of a Summary Impeachment Trial,” on Jan. 5, 1999. In his memo, obtained by POLITICO, Biden cited historical precedents from impeachment cases going back to the establishment of the Senate and asserted “The Senate need not hold a ‘full-blown’ trial.

“The Senate may dismiss articles of impeachment without holding a full trial or taking new evidence. Put another way, the Constitution does not impose on the Senate the duty to hold a trial,” Biden wrote at the time.
The Delaware Democrat added later: “In a number of previous impeachment trials, the Senate has reached the judgment that its constitutional role as a sole trier of impeachments does not require it to take new evidence or hear live witness testimony.”

Along with his son Hunter, Biden has become a primary target for Republicans in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. Biden is also a frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Biden’s comments from 1999 are at odds with current Democratic talking points that additional witnesses must be called to get to the bottom of Trump’s actions in the Ukraine saga. Republicans, of course, now oppose witnesses in Trump’s trial and argued strongly for them in Clinton’s.

In 1999, Biden also said senators should take into account the impact drawing out the impeachment proceedings would have on the country.

“In light of the extensive record already compiled, it may be that the benefit of receiving additional evidence or live testimony is not great enough to outweigh the public costs (in terms of national prestige, faith in public institutions, etc.) of such a proceeding,” Biden said. “While a judge may not take such considerations into account, the Senate is uniquely competent to make such a balance.”

Biden and other Clinton allies — including now-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — lost the witness fight during that 1999 trial. The Senate agreed to depose former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Clinton led to just the second presidential impeachment in history, as well as two other witnesses.

Despite those interviews, Clinton was acquitted by the Senate in February 1999. Clinton’s administration cooperated more with the special counsel, leading to a more voluminous record of evidence in his trial. The Trump White House has refused to make officials available for interviews or key documents to House investigators.

The Biden campaign declined to comment.

As I write today’s post, I have been thinking about what the unbridled arrogance-fueled anger of the Democrat Elite has put this country through over the last three years.

From the very night that average Americans between the coasts elected Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump to be our 45th President of the United States of America, they have been determined to overturn our vote and to somehow remove a Constitutionally-elected president from office.

This morning, God willing, their latest attempt at a coup, and make no mistake, boys and girls, that is exactly what it is. will end with the acquittal of President Trump.

The thing about it is, their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

The Democrats who have divided the nation for the last three years will continue their Quixotic Quest to remove Donald J. Trump on up to the day before the 2020 Presidential Election.

Don’t believe me? Check out this tweet from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi…

The news about Biden’s 1999 document came out last night.

San Fran Nan’s tweet posted earlier in the day.

I wonder what she thought about that?

I’ll bet her dentures dropped into her gin and tonic.

My point is that the last three years have made it imperative to our future as Constitutional Republic to not only reelect President Trump but also to vote the Democrats out of power in the House of Repr3esentives.

That will be the only way that we will be able to move forward as a Sovereign Nation.

Otherwise, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, The Squad, et al, will continue to not only try to remove a  duly-elected president but to govern AGAINST the will of the people whom they have been elected to serve.

And, that would eventually lead to American becoming another “Socialist Paradise”…like Venezuela.

Damaging Videos of Bolton and Schiff Emerge as the Democrats’ “Sham Impeachment” Trial Continues

hypatia-h_ac942194d3519afabf49804c446b7aff-h_05ff38619905c4decadf5c8a53f432cf reports that

A string of newly resurfaced video clips of former national security adviser John Bolton spurred President Trump and his supporters Wednesday to highlight what they described as serious credibility questions — raised by both Democrats and Republicans — amid the Senate impeachment trial, as the president tweeted, “GAME OVER!”

Trump linked to an interview of Bolton in August 2019 concerning Ukraine policy. In the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty interview clip, Bolton made no mention of any illicit quid pro quo, and acknowledged, as Republicans have claimed, that combating “corruption” in Ukraine was a “high priority” for the Trump administration.

Bolton also called Trump’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “warm and cordial,” without mentioning any misconduct. It seemingly contradicted reported assertions in Bolton’s forthcoming book that Trump explicitly told him he wanted to tie military aid to Ukraine to an investigation of Joe Biden. (Zelensky has said his communications with Trump involved no pressure for any investigation.)

Separately, Fox News has identified clips of Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., now the lead House impeachment manager, in which he says Bolton had a distinct “lack of credibility” and was prone to “conspiracy theories.” This week, Schiff said Bolton needed to testify in the trial as an important and believable witness.

“This is someone who’s likely to exaggerate the dangerous impulses of the president toward belligerence, his proclivity to act without thinking, and his love of conspiracy theories,” Schiff told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on March 22, 2018, when Trump named Bolton national security adviser.

“And I’ll, you know, just add one data point to what you were talking about earlier, John Bolton once suggested on Fox News that the Russian hack of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] was a false flag operation that had been conducted by the Obama administration,” he said. “So, you add that kind of thinking to [former U.S. attorney] Joe diGenova and you have another big dose of unreality in the White House.”

Schiff made similar arguments back in May 2005, saying in an interview with CNN’s “Crossfire” that Bolton was “more focused on the next job than doing well at the last job” when he was up for nomination as ambassador to the United Nations under then-President George W. Bush.

“And particularly given the history, where we’ve had the politicizing of intelligence over WMD [weapons of mass destruction], why we would pick someone who the very same issue has been raised repeatedly, and that is John Bolton’s politicization of the intelligence he got on Cuba and other issues, why we would want someone with that lack of credibility, I can’t understand,” Schiff had said.

Then-Sen. Barack Obama, in 2005, echoed those arguments, calling Bolton “damaged goods” whose appointment as ambassador means “we will have less credibility and ironically be less equipped to reform the United Nations in the way that it needs to be reformed.”

Obama separately had said that Bolton “bullies, marginalizes and undermines those who do not agree with him.” Other prominent Democrats agreed at the time.

Bolton himself had admitted in the past that he would be more than willing to lie if he felt it was in the nation’s interest.

“If I had to say something I knew was false to protect American national security, I would do it,” Bolton said in an interview with Fox Business in 2010.

But, speaking to CNN on Monday, Schiff took a different approach — calling Bolton essential to the “search for truth.”

“I think for the senators, and I’m just not talking about the four that have been so much the focus of attention, for every senator, Democrat and Republican, I don’t know how you can explain that you wanted a search for the truth in this trial and say you don’t want to hear from a witness who had a direct conversation about the central allegation in the articles of impeachment,” Schiff said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Seemingly responding to charges of hypocrisy, Schiff remarked on the Senate floor late Wednesday, “I’m no fan of John Bolton, but I like him a little more now than I used to.”

Nevertheless, Democrats’ sudden about-face has been drawing some light mockery from even left-of-center commentators.

“Democrats are currently begging Mitt Romney to agree with them that John Bolton should swoop to the impeachment trial and save the day, but remember: you’re a despicable Trump-loving apologist if you said ahead of time that this entire thing would be a joke,” mused journalist Michael Tracey.

Well, now.

That’s something that we can all agree on.

This Sham Impeachment is a joke…and a bad one at that.

Even the House Democrats know that they started a joke, and unlike the song by the Bee Gees, it did not start the whole world laughing.

In fact, boys and girls, out here in the America between the coasts, which we like to call “Realityville”, the Democrats’ bad joke has made a lot of average Americans hotter than a 4th of July firecracker.

The Democrats listened to a bunch of loud, obnoxious radicals within their own political party and allowed their oversized egos, their continued anguish over losing the 2016 Presidential Election, and their obsessive hatred of President Donald J. Trump to convince themselves that they could actually impeach a sitting president by presenting articles which did not meet Constitutional Requirements.

And now, after a rigged partisan round of secret meetings in the Capitol Building Basement, which they called an “Impeachment Inquiry” without even taking a required vote, and not allowing any meaningful participation by the Republicans, the House Managers want the Senate Republicans to allow them to call witnesses which they decided that they didn’t need.

That is not the way that the Founding Fathers meant for an Impeachment to be adjudicated.

They meant for a bi-partisan House to deliberate and come up with articles which meet the Constitutional Requirements then present them to the Senate in a timely manner where both sides would present their case with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court “presiding” to make sure that decorum is followed.

Then, the Senate would ask questions of both sides and later hold a vote to dismiss, acquit, or to impeach the president.

What we have been witnessing is a political coup being staged in front of the whole world with a bunch of professional political zealots attempting to take away the right to vote for the Presidential Candidate of their choice from the American people.

Yesterday, Harvard Professor Emeritus and Former Dean of Harvard Law School Alan Dershowitz, speaking for President Trump’s Defense team, told those assembled, including the House Managers, that

“The House of Representatives is not above the law.

I most certainly hope so.

Because our Sovereign Nation will not survive if they are allowed to continue to act as if they are.

I pray that the punchline to the Democrats’ bad joke is the acquittal of President Donald J. Trump.

A Tale of Two Cities: Wildwood and Washington…The Difference Between Optimism and Obsession


President Trump headlined a jam-packed rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Tuesday night, hours after his attorneys wrapped up their opening arguments in his Senate impeachment trial — and minutes after sources told Fox News that Republicans don’t have the votes yet to block additional witnesses who could extend the proceedings.

An elevated level of enthusiasm was evident in the larger-than-normal crowd sizes inside and outside the Wildwoods Convention Center, and Fox News spoke to several attendees who had been waiting more than 24 hours to ensure they would be seated.

“While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the congressional Democrats are obsessed with demented hoaxes, crazy witch hunts, and deranged partisan crusades,” Trump said. “We will make sure they face another crushing defeat in the next election.”

…”We have tens of thousands of people outside,” Trump said to chants of “Four more years!” and other cheers. “If anyone would like to give them your place, please let us know.”

The president then touted the “blue-collar boom” in the economy — including historically low unemployment, rising wages especially among low-income workers, and soaring markets.

“Earnings for the bottom 10 percent are rising faster than earnings for the top 10 percent, for the first time ever,” Trump said. “Since my election, the net worth for the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47 percent, three times faster than the increase for the top one-percent. Median household income is at an all-time high; for President Bush, in eight years it was $450. Under President Barack Hussein Obama, for eight years, it was $975. … Under your favorite president, and when you include the tax cuts, the regulation cuts … under President Trump, for three years, the number is almost $10,000 — and it’s going up. That’s a big difference.”

Trump added: “The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We don’t need anybody else’s energy anymore. It’s so nice.”

Democrats, by contrast, would “demolish” the U.S. economy, Trump said, noting that their health care plans — including proposals to pay for the health care of illegal immigrants — simply were too expensive and inefficient.

“We are saving your health care while the Democrats are trying to take away your health care, take away your doctors,” Trump said.

Touting his administration’s recent victory in a key Supreme Court case on the so-called “public charge rule,” Trump remarked, “We will now finally be able to enforce federal law and ensure that those seeking admission to our country are able to support themselves financially and not abuse taxpayer-funded programs.”

He continued, “On no issue have Washington Democrats more thoroughly betrayed the American people than the issue of immigration.”

Trump also hit Democrats for largely opposing restrictions on even late-term abortion, saying, “every child is a sacred gift from God.” Trump recently became the first president to speak at the pro-life March for Life rally in Washington.

“I got it done, and I mean I solely got it done,” Trump said to applause later, referring to the passage of his landmark criminal justice reform bill. “You have to thank yourself, because nobody else is going to do it.”

…Meanwhile, in Washington, Trump’s legal team wrapped up its defense earlier in the day, setting up a 16-hour question period on Wednesday. Although Trump’s acquittal by the Republican-controlled Senate is all but assured, his team has tried to minimize the political damage.

And, the president apparently was hoping to use impeachment to motivate his political base and independents disenchanted with impeachment to turn out in greater numbers this fall.

Jay Sekulow, one of his lawyers, used his time before the Senate to offer a list of attacks against Trump’s perceived foes — from ousted FBI agents to secret federal courts — and to highlight what he saw as politically driven maneuvering by the Democrats to oust the president.

“Danger, danger, danger,” he told senators. “That’s politics. You’re being called upon to remove the duly elected president of the United States. That’s what these articles of impeachment call for.”

White House counsel Pat Cipollone, also part of the defense, added: “What they are asking you do is to throw out a successful president on the eve of an election, with no basis, and in violation of the Constitution.”

“Why not trust the American people with this decision? Why tear up their ballots?” Cipollone continued. “The election is only months way. The American people are entitled to choose their president.”

Last night, American Citizens living in Wildwood, New Jersey heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.

You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As his poll numbers show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made the citizens of New Jersey, along with the rest of us average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation by listing the things he has been able to accomplish for our Sovereign Nation while being attacked by the opposition party worse than any president before him.

This, gentle readers, is an American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens

This man is indeed a “radical change”.

And, that is why the professional politicians within the Far Left Democratic Party are obsessed with removing him from office.

He interfered with their plans to change America into something which she was never meant to be: a Marxist Nation.

President Trump must be acquitted and the Democrats must be soundly defeated in 2020.

America’s future is at stake…now more than ever.

Dershowitz Tells House Managers and Senate No “Constitutional Justification” for Impeachment of Trump


“Congresswoman Maxine Waters recently put it more succinctly in the context of a presidential impeachment. Here’s what she said: ‘Impeachment is whatever Congress says it is. There is no law. But this lawless view would place Congress above the law. It would place Congress above the Constitution. For Congress to ignore the specific words of the Constitution itself and substitutes its own judgments would be for Congress to do what it’s accusing the president of doing.” – Professor Alan Dershowitz, 1/27/2020 reports that

Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, delivering a spirited constitutional defense of President Trump at his Senate impeachment trial Monday night, flatly turned toward House impeachment managers and declared they had picked “dangerous” and “wrong” charges against the president — noting that neither “abuse of power” nor “obstruction of justice” was remotely close to an impeachable offense as the framers had intended.

In a dramatic primetime moment, the liberal constitutional law scholar reiterated that although he voted for Hillary Clinton, he could not find constitutional justification for the impeachment of a president for non-criminal conduct, or conduct that was not at least “akin” to defined criminal conduct.

“I’m sorry, House managers, you just picked the wrong criteria. You picked the most dangerous possible criteria to serve as a precedent for how we supervise and oversee future presidents,” Dershowitz told the House Democrats, including head House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

He said that “all future presidents who serve with opposing legislative majorities” now face the “realistic threat” of enduring “vague charges of abuse or obstruction,” and added that a “long list” of presidents have previously been accused of “abuse of power” in various contexts without being formally impeached.

The list included George Washington, who refused to turn over documents related to the Jay Treaty; John Adams, who signed and enforced the so-called “Alien and Sedition Acts”; Thomas Jefferson, who flat-out purchased Louisiana without any kind of congressional authorization whatosever; John Tyler, who notoriously used and abused the veto power; James Polk, who allegedly disregarded the Constitution and usurped the role of Congress; and Abraham Lincoln, who suspended habeas corpus during the Civil War. Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and others would also probably face impeachment using the Democrats’ rules, Dershowitz said.

“Abuse of power,” he argued, has been a “promiscuously deployed” and “vague” term throughout history. It should remain a merely “political weapon” fit for “campaign rhetoric,” Dershowitz said, as it has no standard definition nor meaningful constitutional relevance.

Dershowitz then said he was “nonpartisan” in his application of the Constitution, and would make the same arguments against such an “unconstitutional impeachment” if Hillary Clinton were on trial — passing what he called the “shoe on the other foot” test.

“Purely non-criminal conduct such as abuse of power and obstruction of Congress are outside the range of impeachable offenses,” Dershowitz said.

He quoted Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Robbins Curtis — one of the two dissenters in the notorious 1857 “Dred Scott v. Sandford” decision and counsel for President Andrew Johnson during his impeachment trial in 1868 — as saying there can be no impeachable offense “without a law, written or unwritten, express or implied.”

Johnson, Dershowitz observed, was impeached for violating the Tenure of Office Act — a statute essentially designed to create the pretext to impeach Johnson. By passing the law first, lawmakers expressly recognized that criminal-like conduct was needed for impeachment, Dershowitz argued.

Indeed, a “close review of the history” near in time to the founding of the United States, Dershowitz said, revealed that the founders explicitly wanted to avoid making impeachment so arbitrary and powerful that it effectively created a “British-style parliamentary democracy,” in which presidents served at the pleasure of the legislature.

Dershowitz further suggested that the “rule of lenity,” or the legal doctrine that ambiguities should be resolved in favor of defendants, also counseled toward acquitting the president. The Constitution permits impeachment and removal of presidents for “treason,” “bribery,” and “high crimes and misdemeanors,” but does not clearly define the terms.

Responding to reports that former national security adviser John Bolton has written in his forthcoming book that Trump told him he wanted to link Ukraine aid to an investigation of the Bidens, Dershowitz argued that even an explicit “quid pro quo” would not constitute an impeachable “abuse of power.”

“Nothing in the Bolton revelations, even if true, would rise to the level of an abuse of power, or an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said. “That is clear from the history. That is clear from the language of the Constitution. You cannot turn conduct that is not impeachable into impeachable conduct simply by using terms like ‘quid pro quo’ and ‘personal benefit.'”

“It is inconceivable,” Dershowitz said, that the framers would have intended such “politically loaded terms” and “subjective'” words without clear definitions to serve as the basis for impeachment.

Fearing a partisan impeachment process, the framers had rejected the offense of “maladministration” as a basis for impeachment, Dershowitz noted, and “abuse of power” was similarly vague.

Dershowitz wrapped up his argument, steeped in historical and textual analysis of the constitution and founding documents, by urging senators to reject the “passions and fears of the moment,” as the framers had similarly warned.

A series of Republican senators lined up to shake Dershowitz’s hand after his presentation concluded.

I will confess that, over the years, when Professor Dershowitz would appear on a news program defending Clinton or some Liberal clause, I would think that he was just another Liberal Pundit.

However, in the last few years, I have come to respect the man.

He is brilliant and he knows the Constitution and our legal system inside and out.

If you would have told me years ago that the same Liberal Pundit who appeared on all of those news programs years ago defending President Clinton would, years later, be the one to give a well-needed lesson in Constitutional Law to Congressional Democrats, I would have thought that you were crazy.

However, that is exactly what happened.

Professor Dershowitz, along with the other members of Trump’s Legal Defense Team, continued yesterday what they had begun on Saturday: a complete evisceration of the House Managers’ very weak and totally political case for impeaching President Donald j. Trump.

The Defense Team covers everything from the history of impeachment to the corruption of the Bidens’ Ukraine Scandal to Obama’s “flexibility” with Putin.

To label their defense strategy as being “scorched earth” would be an understatement.

The Democrats went into the meeting buoyed by the leaked information from John Bolton’s book.

They left with smoke coming from the back of the pants of their $2,000 suits.

I hope that the Defense Team, coordinated by Jay Sekulow, follows the same strategy today.

It is entertaining, informative, and, most importantly, it’s a winner.

For putting our country through all of this stress and conflict for 3 years, simply because they lost the Presidential Election, the Democrats need to be embarrassing, and after President Trump is acquitted, some of them need to be indicted and frog-marched to prison in orange jumpsuits.

The Democrats have forgotten that they were elected to serve American Citizens, not special interest groups, and, most certainly, not themselves.

If they continue on the path to Marxism which they have undertaken, they deserve to go the way of the Whigs and be banished into the dust of history.

If that happens, they will have no one to blame but themselves.
