So We Impeach Trump So Now What?

 

Well, it appears that the only thing which will quiet the beating beasties will be to have Donald Trump’s head on a pole in front of the Capitol Building after a public, Game of Thrones style trial on the Mall with the fountain at the base of the Capitol Steps as the backdrop. After his fair public trial there will be an equally righteous beheading, of course, with the reward on display with PBS carrying the progress of Trump’s head on a stick. We probably are not being too graphic to note that it starts with the blackbirds pecking out the eyes but decency will not allow us to describe it any further. So, now what happens? Will we wait until a week passes and then on the next Tuesday with all the pomp and ceremony, and after removing the pole and the remains thereof, we will have the rightful swearing in by the Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Roberts of Hillary Clinton to be the forty-sixth President and the Democrats return to the White House, right? Well, this is the hope and idea we have often seen posted to discussions about the criminality of the Trump administration surpassing President Ulysses S. Grant and President Richard Nixon reaching never before achieved levels of perfidy. So many have stated as fact that once we get rid of the tyrant wannabe Donald Trump then the United States will get their rightful first woman President because since Donald Trump will have been found guilty of crimes pertaining to the election then the Republicans are disqualified and the Democrat candidate, that would be Hillary Clinton, who came in second, out of two, is then declared the winner. That seems to be the most popular reasoning from the main, strange and unusual discussion boards we have visited. There have even been links to news sources, or presumed news sources such as the JuniorReport and AntieMae’s Inforoom and numerous other similar sounding names, most of which our virus blocker refused to allow our servers entry. We then went to our favorite source, Encyclopedia Britannica, where we sought advice as to what really happens should President Trump be impeached, but more about that after a small amount of additional commentary.

 

The levels of #Trumpamania were of a highly agitated and fevered pitch starting almost immediately after the election results were official, some even earlier just in anticipation and just in case the worst possible of results were true and simply continued to ramp higher and higher seeming as if they would peak immediately after Inauguration Day. That proved to be an incorrect assumption on our behalf as the level still climbed for at least another six weeks and then simmered down slightly only to steady out somewhere between out of their cotton-picking minds (we know, disallowed and demeaning reference) and insanely jealous as if Donald Trump just stole your girl, boy, or alt-gendered friend (choose your appropriate gender). The stamina the anti-Trump team has shown and their ability to stay on topic all repeating the same, up to the minute, ever-changing charge of the moment has been nothing less than remarkable. They change to the most recent bombshell discovery with such uniformity that one can almost delineate the history of the reports and the near exact time they hit the presses. Even the Tea Party would be envious of such organization, sheer genius. Precision Marine Drill Teams have only slightly more disciplined displays. As of this writing, the latest is that there is a person of interest who is amongst the White House Trump team close to the President himself and a high level advisor who the FBI has decided they may be interested in questioning as he should be knowledgeable of a direct Russian plot to influence the election where monies have changed hands and other inappropriate interchanges also were perpetrated and this top advisor will definitely turn on President Trump if only to save their own neck. This time it is a solid, slam dunk evidence and the Trump team and all his minions (those little yellow guy are everywhere when there are crimes and unimaginable evil at play) can pack and get ready for their suites at that luxury Federal Prison at the Eglin Federal Prison Camp in Florida with the golf course and all the amenities. Actually, after a 60 Minutes special about what was termed “Club Fed” the golf courses and lobster dinners are gone and the best an inmate can hope for is a minimum security prison and a round of Frisbee golf at a makeshift course, and then only during free time. Back to Donald Trump and his shrinking time left in the White House. We do agree that his time left in the White House is shrinking to just less than four years or maybe just under eight years, with his reelection pending.

 

The actual hope of the people suffering from #Trumpamania is that simply to quiet them the Congress will take the best advised criminal charge that the FBI can provide the greatest number of individuals, often witnessing by deposition given in writing or by video with face blurred and voice electronically altered so they can remain anonymous and not face any further questions about what they are claiming to know. This Impeachment will occupy the House of Representatives for a few weeks, maybe months, and they will find there is no reason to charge or send recommendations to the Senate for an actual trial. The House of Representatives acts like a sort of Grand Jury in deciding if there is sufficient evidence of wrongdoing at a level sufficient to warrant Impeachment. Once they have decided and if they feel the evidence are sufficient, then they pass everything along to the Senate where the actual trial is held and presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In the Senate these people who made anonymous depositions could find themselves subpoenaed to appear in person so the Senators can cross-examine them and get clarification on any innuendo which carried sufficient weight in the House of Representatives but not in the trial held by the Senate where the demand of proof is far higher and a full two-thirds vote is required (sixty-seven Senators). No President has ever been Impeached and found guilty and been removed from office, just a little historical side note. Two have been Impeached, William Jefferson Clinton in recent memory and Andrew Johnson (from a past life memory). Richard Nixon very likely would have been impeached and found guilty which is why he resigned before the House of Representatives could take their full floor vote. It has been stated that the leading Republicans from the House of Representatives and the Senate came to the White House and informed President Nixon they were not going to cover his backside on these charges and he was likely to be convicted so falling on his sword was their advice. He followed their advice figuratively even if not quite literally.

Now for the reality check and some distressing news for many who believe, getting rid of President Donald Trump will result in an overturning of the election results and the Inauguration of President Hillary Clinton, the first woman President. The truth is the election stands as the limit for challenging the validity of the election is the date that the Electoral College votes and the House of Representatives verify that vote. Once these steps are accomplished, the results are set in stone, unalterable, done and done. This means that the Line of Succession is set thus remove President Donald Trump and get President Mike Pence. If somehow both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were to be removed at the same time, this would make Speaker of the House Paul Ryan the President. It simply does not get any better as one continues on. The Line of Succession is as follows; 1 Vice President, 2 Speaker of the House of Representatives, 3 President Pro Tempore of the Senate, 4 Secretary of State, 5 Secretary of the Treasury, 6 Secretary of Defense, 7 Attorney General, 8 Secretary of the Interior, 9 Secretary of Agriculture, 10 Secretary of Commerce, 11 Secretary of Labor, 12 Secretary of Health and Human Services, 13 Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, or Secretary of Transportation, 14 Secretary of Energy, 15 Secretary of Education, 16 Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and finally 17 Secretary of Homeland Security. Currently the vast majority, possibly all in the not too distant future, are appointees of President Donald Trump with two of the top ten being retired Generals from the United States Military. Whether or not that is good news or bad news is completely dependent upon your feelings about the military and its commanders in particular. The one item of interest is that nowhere on that list is there a slot for the losing candidate from the previous election, or simply put, no room for Hillary Clinton. So, a peace of advice for those suffering the most extreme cases of #Trumpamania largely because Impeaching or otherwise removing Donald Trump from the White House will result in Hillary Clinton becoming President, save your energies and start to dedicate them to electing Hillary Clinton President in the 2020 or 2024 elections or maybe you would prefer Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. Imagine the first woman President also being the first Native American President, unless Ms. Warren retired her Native American heritage now that she is done with her positions at Harvard University. Use all this energy in a more fruitful endeavor or, if yelling in all caps every other posting on Facebook really does make for your self-worth, then by all means carry on in the manner you have become accustomed.

 

For those who find this inexorable and eternal clamoring over the Russian connection and the myriad of other charges leveled thus far with new ones to come every day to be a bit over the top and annoying, we have some really bad news. Let us imagine for a moment and do a thought experiment about what happens should President Donald Trump step down either by choice or by Impeachment and Mike Pence is sworn in as the next President. Does anybody believe that calm will return to the world or do you suspect a new eruption to levels never witnessed as they immediately tie President Mike Pence with charges of collusion along with Donald Trump with the Russians to destroy Hillary Clinton denying her the Presidency. There have already been charges against Pence as well as against number seven on the succession chart, Attorney General Jeff Sessions as well as number three, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Now that this list of succession will be attainable easily with the reading of this article, as looking it up would take too much valuable time away from tweets and social media storming against President Donald Trump and company. But, as Rosie O’Donnell stated on Twitter that “WHEN TRUMP GOES SO DOES SESSIONS AND GORSUCH GETS REMOVED GARLAND SWORN IN EVERY EO INVALIDATED” The all caps proves this is indeed fact and needs to be yelled from every tall building top and mountain top in the land. There is a small problem though, and that is none of it is accurate. As stated above, the Trump team remains, Gorsuch was nominated and approved for the Supreme Court, a lifetime position, Sessions would remain until and if then President Mike Pence might replace him. And Garland still does not see his promotion and the Executive Orders remain unless, you guessed it, President Mike Pence nullified them, highly unlikely. But thank you for the civics lesson in left-world where things are as you wish they were, not as they really are. These protests in the social media are simply an attempt to implode the governance of the United States.

 

This method, or at least something similar, has happened numerous times before. There are agitators who rampage through the streets destroying store-fronts and other property. Pressure is kept on the government charging the leadership with being poor stewards of the public interest while destroying the ability of the nation to function in an advantageous manner. Businesses start to fail or simply pack-up and head for greener pastures where they would be safe. Others will seek somebody, anybody who promises to end the violence. Then a savior steps from the shadows and exclaims that they have what it will take to make the streets and other venues safe again. Then, in a very bloody couple of days, if even that long, the rowdies and agitators are simply executed in the street and their bodies carted off thrown into mass graves. Promise delivered at a simple price, freedom and liberty are now gone, sold for momentary safety. This is where the obligatory quote from Benjamin Franklin must be used, as he stated, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” This has been proven not only true but in the worst possible of ways. Those who have attempted to exchange freedom for safety have often ended up slaves to a fascist governance which took on a war that eventually destroyed the society, its cities and everything the people had hoped to protect when they traded away their liberty and freedoms to a dictator whose sole interest was absolute power and world conquest.

 

This brings us to one final point, world conquest. Many in the developed world have put away the idea of world conquest. Their reasons are good as they endured World War I and World War II where world conquest and the idea of empire were put to rest. But that does not mean that the thought of world conquest has been eradicated from the minds of tyrants and madmen. Just for a few choice individuals or people who believe they will rule the world and force everybody to bend to their demands, take North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He has delusions that his destiny is to be ruler of the world, and he is building the weapons with which to accomplish this task. Then there are the leading ruling Mullahs, the Ayatollahs of Iran of which the Grand Ayatollah and Supreme Leader Seyyed Ali Khamenei is currently attempting to oust the Islamic State from the southeastern quarter of Syria such that Iran will have created their Shiite Crescent reaching from the Iranian shores on the Indian Ocean to the Syrian and Lebanese shores on the Mediterranean Sea. Iran holds the coasts of Lebanon and Syria and the southern forty-three percent of Iraq from Baghdad south (see map below). From this position, the Iranian leadership intends on conquering Kuwait, or absorbing it leaving an appointed Shiite Kuwaiti to rule as their puppet, and actually conquer the oil fields in the northeastern parts of Saudi Arabia. This will grant Iran control over the largest total collection of oil granting them control over the price of oil worldwide. This the Iranian leadership sees as vaulting them to take over Islam and then use the nearly two-billion Muslims to conquer the world as stated is the final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. Along these very lines the Saudi Royal Family see their Wahhabi sect of Islam leading the Muslim world to its final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. Also, there is Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who has visions of reconstituting the Ottoman Empire and perhaps, after that has been established, the Islamic world will recognize him as its Sultan to lead them onward to world conquest as the final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. China has always seen themselves as one of the undefeatable powers of the world and as such having an overt and unequalled influence over the world giving them a form of world control. The Russians also view their nation as one of the last empires stretching across approximately ten time zones, more than any other country. China and Russia both have valuable resources, which further their abilities to influence the world. The main point is that there are forces on earth who still cling to the idea of world conquest and placing the entirety of the world under a single ruler, namely their ruler.

Oh, and we must not forget the United Nations which may start to disintegrate in the near future. If the United Nations is going to collapse, one of the initial signs will be Israel departing their company and following that up with ignoring their decisions seeing them as immoral and simply facilitating one of the groups to take control of the rest of the world, and Israel will not tolerate or play that game. Israel desires helping all in need who are willing to accept the assistance from Israel, and those who refuse to acknowledge the Israeli ability to help them simply may not realize the error of those ways. Unfortunately, these same people when they suffer blame Israel and not their leaders because they are raised on a steady diet of being anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic. Israel has garnered the hatred of the Islamic world, or at least the vast majority thereof. Israel has also garnered the most vile treatment from far left dictators and far left politicians, mostly those leftists from the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. The Europeans regularly hurt Israel by abstaining allowing the Islamic block in the governing board of UNESCO to denounce Jews owning land or having a national origin. They have completely ignored the writings of Torah and the Old Testament instead adopting the Quran and the idea that it is the final world of Allah, not Hashem, not the Judeo-Christian deity as Hashem is completely different and in opposition to Allah and much of the Quran.

 

But one need not worry because Europeans will soon find themselves obeying Sharia, the strictest interpretation of Islamic superiority enforced through the law itself. Some will simply slide under the rising tide and the constant beating of the waves, and which nations awaken before it is too late and address the problem directly, by demanding their culture survive, will decide where the lines are drawn when the final battle for the rule of the planet arrives. This future is not a pretty sight but it is coming and we must prepare, and splitting the population in half and setting one upon the other is just the disruption that the powers of Islam desire. Keep fighting against the other side because only your side is capable of proper governing. Keep fighting to tear down the institutions that were designed to rule in a just manner with all sides having a voice. Demand safe places where one can run when confronted with a reality that shakes their world-view and they require therapy and puppies to pet. Demand the levers of power for those whose main desire is the destruction of your way of life. Support those who believe that they can use Islam to conquer the world and then redefine Islam as their eco-friendly socialist utopian quagmire. Islam will not bend and once they have facilitated the Islamic takeover, most of those who installed Islam at the top of the ruling party will likely be amongst the first to feel the sting of Islamic Sharia. Their acts which lead to their being labeled apostates as they will have previously willingly taken on the title of follower of Islam giving it as much importance as one does their book club which has a brunch every other month.

 

This was the path that Hillary Clinton promised, more Islam because Islam opposes the same ideas that Hillary Clinton hates, all those who are Evangelical Christians, believers of Christ, religious Jews, Zionist Jews and all who mold their lives to follow the dictates of the Judeo-Christian Deity. Islam is the latest tool for those who believe that there are no deities that science will define everything, and their lives are to be spent in the moment, as nothing else is certain. Hedonism is their governing principle and pleasure for their own is their goal and their greatest pleasure is power, power which permits their dictating to everyone else how they must live while doing as they please in their lives. They desire the power to apply the rules they believe are necessary to keep space between them and the little people. They actually detest the little people though they will use them for as long as they willingly and blindly follow. This is true of both political parties in the United States as well as the vast majority of those in Europe and the rest of the developed world. This is what is behind the official hate for Donald Trump by the Democrats and the never-Trump Republicans led by John McCain. Continue with your rage as it has blinded you from realizing the damage you may end up causing as a result of your actions. Eventually the people in the United States will elect a person who will so damage the nation finishing the job begun by President Obama and actually the start of the progressives drive to destroy the republican form of governance such that they could usher in the new governance where the biggest twenty cities chose the President and nobody else matters. That is the beauty of the Electoral College, but the leaders of these hate Trump people know the reasons and desire to end allowing Wyoming to have any say. They want Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas, Denver, Seattle and perhaps another dozen and they would rule the country under the desired new means for making the Progressive way the only way. Take away the Electoral College and this will be the future, and there will be no turning back once the rules are changed. There was a reason that the popular vote did not elect a President, and that was a good thing as it gave the smallest amongst you a voice. Now you desire drowning it out just as you drown out any discourse on social media and simply stick to your slogans which lie mostly along the line of Trump, Russia, Cash Paid, Election, Cheating, Impeach all Republicans, Democrat be granted permanent rule, end the Republic. Failure of the system to be protected will result in the end of the United States.

The Media that Cried Wolf Too Many Times

 

The latest Trumpism is from the Washington Post, which unfortunately makes one suspect from the start, is that President Trump divulged intelligence secrets with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov. The White House reply was that no intelligence gathering information or military plans, which were not already public knowledge or sensitive data not already known to both parties, were revealed. Who to believe and who has the right to final arbiter in this case? Well, allow us some explanation about so-called secret information and discussions including such with foreign dignitaries. First item is that many secret and higher classifications are determined by the Executive Branch and as such, their classifications can change. So, the basic fact is that secret information, the absolute lowest level right there alongside sensitive information, the latter oft times more damaging than actual secret information, can be reclassified even on the fly if the situation calls for such reclassification. That means that the White House can reclassify information allowing for sharing of information with the appropriate people, even from Russia, and can cause a reclassification of such information. When the White House has reclassified certain information, such a release will have predictable ramifications and send expected ripples through certain circles. For this reason, after any such reclassification, it becomes necessary to inform people in the intelligence communities, such as the CIA and NSA, so that filters and listening departments can have their directives altered appropriately.

 

What all this means is that unless information is too deep into the secretive layers, Top Secret or higher classification, it can be divulged as long as the gathering techniques remain undisclosed and the appropriate agencies are to be notified at the earliest convenience. These rules would explain the calling of the CIA and NSA by Administration personnel who handle such information and the trail of information and other pertinent implications. Any observational information is often granted secret classification as it waits being scrutinized and its final classification can be determined. There are many in the White House who can grant such information its final recommended level thus often making such secret information into unclassified information. The National Security Advisor, the CIA Chief, Secretary of Defense, and, believe it or not, the President of the United States can make such classifications even on the fly as necessitated. So President Trump disclosed information whose classification he can determine and give a lower classification completely upon his own determination. Under these rules, the President did no wrong and the immediate calls to the CIA and NSA were required once the final classification or reclassifications were issued by the President such that these agencies would not be blindsided by the release of information. Often it is the technique by which such information was acquired that is sensitive and not so much the data itself. There is so much more than the Washington Post reported at play here and because of powers vested in the White House, there was likely nothing more serious than a slight breach in protocols, nothing more. But in the current heated contesting of the legitimacy of the unapproved to be in the White House, their getting an untested drink of water would be blown up into an international scandal.

 

The fevered hyperventilation of the extreme left, which has hijacked the media and many in the political left of the spectrum, proves to be like crying wolf every day, twice a day, just to gain attention and keep the pressure up on the administration hopefully until the Administration is so tied in knots that it becomes impossible to accomplish anything for fear of media second guessing. That has become the atmosphere this Administration is being forced to operate from and in order to make gains they are forced to perform simple tasks which the former Administration performed without even the slightest of doubts being expressed by the media are no longer being tolerated. These normative activities have now become the basics for making impeachment hearings necessary and people’s heads on poles. This is unnatural and makes for a poisonous atmosphere under which every last move is examined from all possible angles seeking the worst one in which to report any act making a walk around the Rose Garden the equivalence to a declaration of war against the decencies set forth by the fourth estate and their cohorts across the leftmost edge of the political spectrum. Lastly, on issues such as anti-terror operations and limiting the effectiveness of the Islamic State, the Russians are our allies and as working allies addressing a shared problem they often would have the right to certain observations and other information about these shared enemies such that the United States and Russian forces do not end up in the same place at the same time giving each away when both are there addressing the same evil. Sharing information is how setting the Islamic State and other ideas of a fair settlement of questions still waiting for information are moved along. This makes the earth-shattering news reported by the Washington Post to belong in the trash, as are many of their opinion pieces, which was largely expanded to include too many front-page stories.

 

Earth as ISIS soft Target Bullseye

 

It becomes a problem when headlines in all too many newspapers have taken to resorting to attacks upon the President because it is what is expected from them. Almost every news-cycle there appears to be yet another scandal emanating from the President or at least one from the White House inner and most confidential staff, which of course warrants the impeachment of the President. One has to wonder what these peopled expect would happen should their wildest dreams come true and they successfully impeach President Trump. All such would accomplish is the placing of Vice President Pence into the White House and not Hillary Clinton. Truth be told, anything short of a revolution would be incapable of placing Hillary Clinton in the White House any time before 2020. Even in 2020 it would require Hillary Clinton to prevail against an even stronger President Trump, she would need to defeat him in a Presidential Election. At this current juncture, President Trump would be even more formidable and more difficult to defeat in his current level of popularity. Otherwise, there is no means of replacing President Trump with a Democrat of any stripe before the next elections. Invalidating the Trump election would set a dangerous precedent under which all future Presidents would necessarily fall, and such restrictions might make cooperation with other powers, with allies. Sometimes where dissemination of information is required, some items may require a reevaluation before being restored as secret or placed in the more general classification, potentially having all secrets revealed to the world.

 

The information, which was disclosed, appears to have been one of the aforementioned classified secret waiting for final evaluation by probably the State Department. Fortunately, the White House can also determine the level of secrecy was involved in this instance. That means they had every opportunity to pass a bill making such information a higher classification, which would even forbid many Congressional members from being able to read the contents without a minder familiar with the information looking over your shoulder and advising you of your options. The United States systems of government would necessarily slow and grind ever more relentlessly to a complete halt. Nothing could ever be accomplished simply because almost every iota, every scintilla of information gathered outside Congress would not be permitted review until its final determination was completed and the level of secrecy calculated. By having their secrecy calculated, we would be referring to the current rules regarding document classifications and its application to have them addressed in a timely manner. Still, such hindrances must be weighed against the potential for harm or for miscalculations being made to permit such information be used by allies in the War of Terror who may have lives depending on this. Allies come in all shapes and sizes and include the Russians when it comes to the Islamic State. That was the why President Trump revealed the information in question. Given a choice, the President decided that divulging this information would permit the Russians to perform towards the Islamic State in a positive and policy affirmative manner supporting the American aims for the destruction of the Islamic State forces and ideology. Weighing this desired end against all else, it made sense for this information to be shared in a timely manner and that is what the President did with the full knowledge of the correct individuals from his Cabinet assisting on this decision. They then notified the relevant agencies as required but this will never satisfy the get Trump out at any cost forces.

 

The entire reason behind these accusations is finally find one that sticks. The leftists and their minions are going to continue to holler about one thing after another until they wear down the sane opposition and they get their one or two or ten special investigations with a couple actually garnering some traction. Then they plan on wrapping President Trump so tightly, by whatever scandal they find gained traction such that everything he attempts is stifled and prevented from coming to fruition because it can be claimed that until the investigation is complete he must not be allowed to pursue any agenda. This is the end result desired, a President so hounded that he gives up attempting to do anything starting with draining the swamp. Nobody is quite sure what draining the swamp might entail and what skeletons will rise from the swamp. Fear of things becoming known or seen as the swamp drains has both sides of the aisle nervous with the left in full panic. Their panic is because they do know what some of the things that would be revealed by draining the swamp and are very worried about these items seeing the light of day. They are like frightened vampires who cannot be taken out into the noon or afternoon sun or they may explode. The entire concept behind these investigations and the desire for one to gain traction was made evident when one leftist spoke truthfully the other day demanding that whatever special prosecutor they might finally expect to entertain, that the investigations should be prepared to continue for four to eight years. Funny they should pick such numbers, four or eight years, exactly the length of one term or possibly two terns just in case they are unable to bring Trump low and make him to heel like a good puppy doing absolutely nothing the entirety he is in office be that four or eight years, we can tie him up answering investigations for that long. This is the great idea from the left, hogtie the President and intertwine as many cabinet posts into their web snaring them also for the entire length of the Presidential term, be it four years or a full on eight years. That one message spoken by a Democrat calling for a variable length investigation which could last merely four years and then declare they found no wrong but if Donald Trump gets reelected the special prosecutor could then fill another four years with stifling every effort made by any in the Administration, especially anything involving the top appointments. So, my friends, the most basic level, the screaming will continue until another progressive leftist is ensconced in the White House to finish what President Obama started, the conversion of the United States into European Union II. Once that has been accomplished, then the deconstruction of the United States as a world power can commence earnestly and never again will Americans be considered anything other than the new Europeans and the cowboy will be forever vanquished. They are planning nothing short than the death of American Exceptionalism once and for all. The question is will America allow the systematic deconstruction of everything they once stood for? We fear that they just might, but hoping we are wrong and they do fight and rage against the dying of the light.

The Thrill Returns

 

Chris Mathews used to speak of the thrill running up, or was it down, his leg whenever he heard a speech by President Barack Hussein Obama. We will not be hearing about him having some form of similar reaction to speeches by Hillary Clinton. Well, we might, but at least it will not be because of speeches by a President Hillary Clinton, at least for now as the United States voting public is very difficult to predict. If we remember correctly, after rejecting Richard Nixon they eventually did elect him President, and then threatened to, and very well would have, impeached him over the Watergate break-in. Well, back to thrills and body parts. The Democrats for the past several months after the election were all but calling for FBI Director Comey’s head on a pike and would have danced jigs, or at least felt a thrill, well, at least a tingle at his being fired. Yet, the funniest thing happened the other day. After the news broke of James Comey being fired, a fair number of Democrats came before the media to protest the firing of the man they had just a day earlier desired humiliated or possibly have his head on a pike. Such a change overnight, it makes one wonder what could be at play here. Let us not leave you in suspense, we have detected a trend in the Democrats, and, strangely enough, the media as well.

 

We have noticed that the Democrats have reacted with great horror and shock at every turn, no matter what the actions of President Trump. This particular time it is most interesting as some in the media and with the Democrats ridiculed Trump claiming he was keeping Comey on as the Director of the FBI as payment for Comey destroying Hillary’s opportunity to become President with his ill-timed press conference announcing the reopening of the investigation of the Hillary e-mail probe. This might have worked well but for one small item, Trump does not keep people in positions simply because they perform a favor or two in his service. Further, as FBI Director, Comey was not performing any duties in the favor or service of the Trump campaign. Comey was caught between a rock and a hard place as the laptop computer taken in an investigation of former Senator Anthony Weiner inappropriate sexual e-mails to an underage girl as the laptop also contained hundreds of communications between Hillary and her closest and trusted aid and Anthony Weiner’s former wife, Huma Abedin. With literally hundreds of new e-mails to go through and review, what was a responsible FBI Director supposed to do, wait until after Election Day and the votes were counted and then tell the media of the reopened investigation or tell the media immediately about reopening the investigation. What to do, what to do? Imagine the soul-searching done by James Comey with this weighty decision keeping him up probably all night long pacing the floor from his bedroom to his kitchen, back and forth all night long until morning breaks and finally with the rising sun he makes his fateful decision. He made his press announcement and the Democrats went berserk all but calling for his head on a pike. What was surprising was the rapidity with which the media reported this earth-shaking news, but then it was a bit more than even they could keep silent about. Then Hillary lost the elections and the media had to join the Democrats on demanding Comey’s head on a pike as the only others who could be blamed was the media themselves. So, that is where things were for a good stretch with most Democrats and the leftist media blaming Comey for telling the media about resuming the investigation and not hanging Trump out to dry over the Russian interference. But things in Washington are not always set in stone as much in a quagmire of oozing swamp, which had not been totally drained yet.

Then, after the Inauguration, the media and Democrats had a second angle from ruining the chances for Hillary being elected, his ongoing investigations into the Russian interference in the election, another reason given for Hillary losing the election. Of course, there were those who griped that Comey was possibly stalling the investigation into the Russian interference and this brought them back to Comey being a tool of President Trump. That all came to a critical point where everything changed when President Trump unceremoniously dumped Director James Comey this past week. Suddenly, James Comey was the victim of a terrible vengeance over the FBI ongoing investigation of the Russians influencing the elections. Then there is one small problem with the expectations over the Russians influencing the election. In the words of Senator Dianne Feinstein, as covered by the Los Angeles Times, there has been absolutely no evidence of Russian interference or influencing of the election and Hillary Clinton actually might have managed to lose the election on her own merit. But there, if you listen to some of the conspiracies, James Comey had to be fired because the FBI was getting very close to proving Trump worked with Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton and impeachment was just a few more days, weeks at most, away. Unfortunately, the FBI reports that they also have found no evidence that implicates the Russians as interfering or influencing the elections or even their coordinating with Wikileaks to interfere or influence the elections. The FBI and the CIA are both not closing, but they are no longer investigating the Russian election quandary. The Senate has ceased their investigation. The House is likely not far behind. Simply put, that investigation has proven to be a dry well and that is the reality which those still screaming over need to get their arms around.

 

The question is what will be the next reason where demands come for investigations, as it must be provable that Hillary Clinton actually won the election and belongs in the White House, if only the people were told the truth. This has gone from one reason to the next and appears to be running out of excuses and evils which require investigations and whatever else can be demanded which, if things go as truth will out, or so the anti-Trump forces keep informing us, that Hillary won the election and even at this late date can be placed in the White House and Donald Trump can be placed in prison for the rest of his life as he deserves for stealing what is rightfully Hillary Clinton’s. How long will this continue? Well, that probably depends on how long Donald Trump remains President. For the meantime, we had all better get used to Facebook and other social media being constant yelling about the dirty deals Trump made with Russia and how he is mismanaging the nation and soon the world will explode and everything is all Trump’s fault, and that’s the truth. And if you are upset about this, well, there is one piece of advice we can give you, get used to it, period. Things will remain like this until the correct people are in charge and the adults have returned to the positions of power. The question now is, who will be feeling a thrill in the near future and why.
