Democrats Obstruct Congress with Obstruction Justice Charges

 

Representative Brad Sherman (Democrat Representative from California) filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump with Congressman Al Green (Democrat Representative from Texas) for obstruction of justice by firing FBI Director James Comey. We feel it is necessary for the political world and the people of the United States to take an honest look into what their statement claims to “begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election.” Our question in every step of this review of their statement is when will the American people be permitted to have their elected President and Republican majorities and be permitted to actually do the public’s bidding as duly elected instead of dancing to every fanatical outburst of childishness crying over their loss in an election which these cry-babies cannot permit because they say so?

 

The presentation by Representative Brad Sherman continues further on with, “Every day Democrats, Republicans, and the entire world are shocked by the latest example of America’s amateur President.” We can most certainly agree. The President’s speech in Poland was one which will go onto the history books as the defining of the growing problems which the leftists have brought down on Western Civilization. He drew the line defining the challenges which will be necessary to face if it is to survive or if it will fall before barbarity, but enough on his Poland speech other than to hope you will listen to it and we have placed the video at the bottom for your viewing pleasure. Their following charge is amusing as they are the main people feeding on this frenzy. Their claim is that President Trump displays, “Ignorance accompanied by a refusal to learn. Lack of impulse control, accompanied by a refusal to have his staff control his impulses. We’re no longer surprised by any action, no matter how far below the dignity of the office and no matter how dangerous to the country.” We had to ask whether they were describing the President or the Media which fuels the fire. The media is so tuned into supporting any mad claim from the left against President Trump that they mostly miss any real news. Their fury that he Tweets something they find offensive or obtusely outrageous and then proceed to scream about it for the entire following week is exactly why he continues to do so. Their tantrums are preventing any intelligent discourse on the business of building America and saving Western Civilization. President Trump speaks volumes when he addresses crowds overseas where he is received as a potential savior, especially in Poland where he was received as the next King Jan III Sobieski, the King of Poland spoken of often on our pages, the man who led his army and relieved the siege on Vienna on September 11, 1683 and potentially saved Western Civilization from the Ottoman invasion.

 

Now we come to the real reason and hopes of these articles of impeachment as Representative B Sherman stated, “As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge.” Well, it is nice to know that even he realizes that what is requested is that Congress drop everything and go on a fishing expedition seeking any scrap of evidence that President Trump may have inadvertently tossed a piece of paper onto the White House lawns thus polluting a national monument, or some equally appalling crime. Is any of this worthy of impeachment charges because even a whiff of smoke has more substance than my attempt at humor and a long four or eight year fishing trip which will prevent the Congress from taking any actions as we request every bill be reviewed by the House Judiciary Committee immediately after we finish seeking impeachable offenses as they surely must exist or will exist or might conceivably exist. Brad continues, “However, as to Obstruction of Justice, as defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. And the national interest requires that we do so.” Allow us to rewrite this and inject some details which humility obviously did not permit Brad to include. However, as to Obstruction of Justice, as we define it or wish to define it from 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we believe we have and hope we can pass off as sufficient to move forward now with this in place of all else as we must prevent Trump from achieving any more as we hate what he stands for. And our national interest requires that we do so. There, now that is more accurate. A pair for last reference, this does apply if for no other reason than in 1892, the Supreme Court unanimously concluded without qualification that “this is a Christian nation.” the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States as well as arguments that the Jewish and Christian Bibles influenced the Declaration of Independence.

 

Representative Sherman finally states a truth but unfortunately had to then redefine the choices to his satisfaction. The truth was, “Introducing Articles of Impeachment will have two possible outcomes.” Yes, charges are valid or charges are not valid, guilt or innocence. Remarkably easy to define but we will take this one point at a time as instead we get, “First, I have slight hope it will inspire an ‘intervention’ in the White House. If Impeachment is real, if they actually see Articles, perhaps we will see incompetency replaced by care. Perhaps uncontrollable impulses will be controlled. And perhaps the danger our nation faces will be ameliorated.” What does Brad mean by ‘intervention’ at the White House, the hogtying of the President, the taking away of his Twitter account, forcing him to remain mum on the problems the nation faces or simply preventing the President from enacting the promises he made on the campaign trail which the leftists find so disturbing as they are based on something they have attempted to destroy in the United States culture for the past fifty years, the Judeo-Christian foundation which underpins the personal freedoms and liberties they wish to take from the American people. They despise the idea of limited governance as described in Deuteronomy Chapter 17:14 – 20 (included below). When reading these verses, please for the sake of making them applicable to the United States we request you think Constitution where it states Torah, as that is more applicable, plus the land will in this case be the United States and not ancient Israel, King should read President, elect replaces divine choice, (hopefully you are getting the idea), horses equate to wealth from time in office, many wives’ meaning is obvious, Levitic Kohanim were the court system, fear in the Constitution is of the people before the elections are held, and the commandment is his promises to the people. You will capably understand how it translates.

When you come to the land the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you possess it and live therein, and you say, “I will set a king over myself, like all the nations around me,
You shall set a king over you, one whom the Lord, your God, chooses; from among your brothers, you shall set a king over yourself; you shall not appoint a foreigner over yourself, one who is not your brother.
Only, he may not acquire many horses for himself, so that he will not bring the people back to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, for the Lord said to you, “You shall not return that way any more.”
And he shall not take many wives for himself, and his heart must not turn away, and he shall not acquire much silver and gold for himself.
And it will be, when he sits upon his royal throne, that he shall write for himself two copies of this Torah on a scroll from [that Torah which is] before the Levitic Kohanim.
And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to fear the Lord, his God, to keep all the words of this Torah and these statutes, to perform them,
so that his heart will not be haughty over his brothers, and so that he will not turn away from the commandment, either to the right or to the left, in order that he may prolong [his] days in his kingdom, he and his sons, among Israel.

Representative Sherman continues hoping, “Second, and more likely, filing Articles of Impeachment is the first step on a very long road. But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually many, many months from now, Republicans will join the impeachment effort.” Well, here is some reality being stated at last. This is a holding pattern through which everything can be delayed because we have Articles of Impeachment pending and until we determine that President Trump is President without any doubt in the minds of a single opponent of his, then we must continue searching everywhere for some shred of evidence we can use and take “many, many months” which we believe means years, four to eight as required, then finally the Republicans will comply and impeach Trump if for no other reason than to inaugurate Vice President Pence and continue with the national business. The problem with this is there are Democrats already working on impeachment for Vice President Pence and Speaker of the House Ryan. These researchers are seeking what can be used to tie up Congress with more impeachment proceedings even should they remove Trump. The new tactic by the Democrats is to impede and prevent any progress they can obstruct in order to wait out the entirety of any Republican in the White House such that only a Democrat President will be permitted to have any influence on the country. There’s one great plan for one party rule, or a dictatorship, can we say fascist yet?

 

And his conclusion, “I author Articles of Impeachment not to change our national policy. I served with Mike Pence in Congress for twelve years and I disagree with him on just about everything. I never dreamed I would author a measure that would put him in the White House. I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.” That first line is deceptive. You need to understand that changing national policy is one of the items, and very large item, on President Donald Trump’s to do list. He desires taking the United States from the let’s make America into Europe and an ally of religious fascist Iran and against Israel into America exceptionalism, something the left finds offensive, and prevent terror sponsor Iran from any additional harm and support Israel, all things the leftists hate. He at least admits his lack of similar ground with the Vice President, guess we can assume his views diverge even more strongly with those of the President. Our final comments will cover his stating, “to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.” Long process is a definite exactly what he means and wants, tie up Congress further on why the President is not the President we, the leftists who know better than the rest of you, elected. The abuse of power is anything which does not serve the leftist goals as started by President Obama and were supposed to be continued to fruition by a President Hillary which did not happen and they are stunned into obstruction of progress by the President with impulsive, ignorant and incompetent proceedings, investigations, diversions and whatever it takes right up to and including a revolution to place a leftist in the White House and dissolve Congress as it is Republican controlled and replace five Justices on the Supreme Court with complacent Justices who understand the new way, the fascist way and do not think for a moment the United States is not dangerously close to a revolution followed by a fascist dictatorial system where the conservatives will be granted free reeducation. On this revolution part, please prove me wrong on this, please.

Super Tuesday Results with Maps

 

We are going to hear much about the Republican race being between Trump and Rubio trying to minimize Cruz as the Republican Party can only beat Trump if they can put every last non-Trump Vote to one candidate even if it was a more popular Donald, that being Donald Duck. Cruz and Rubio are going to continue to split the voters leaving Trump slowly eclipsing them both right out of the delegate count, especially as the winner take all states start appearing rather than the proportional representation they are facing now. The results in the Republican primaries will not change the fight but simply serve to fortify the three man race plus Kasich will claim he has not been ruled out and he will come roaring back once he wins Ohio which is becoming more unlikely as the delegates are divided up and him just missing threshold after threshold. But the Republicans will continue as advertised but the Democrats the fat lady may be singing.

 

Probably the stake through the heart of the Sanders campaign was losing Massachusetts as well as every other state looking being eclipsed in the eye. Bernie Sanders may as well thank his supporters and workers for their faith and hope in him and recognize that H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary has won the nomination with little if any potential for doubt. So, now H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary can campaign on a low keyed style taking extra care to not say anything which might be used against her in the general elections. All H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary need do is keep her mainstay base of minorities to remain committed and have a level of excitement to produce them at the polls in November. She can float trial balloons testing how they play with the public. Bernie Sanders cannot claim to have any hope when the only states won so far are New Hampshire, Vermont, and Oklahoma while losing Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. These were the results in the early states and the projections look very much like same as above with H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary winning and winning. We could go with so many ways of trivializing the results claiming the fat lady is singing, turn out the lights the party’s over, or put a fork in him, he’s done. So, what is next for H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary?

 

The questions now will revolve around who will H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary choose as her running mate, her Secretary of State, her this, that and the other. That will be the news cycle over and over as they try to keep H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary in the news reminding everybody how popular H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary is with so many different demographics making it appear so clear that she will win the all-important elections come November. They will mostly avoid those death subjects such as her e-mail server, her mishandling of top secret and more secure information, Benghazi, telling lies to bereaved parents about why their children gave their lives, and every other scandal she hides from the public with the complicity of the mainstream media. This election may hinge on whether or not H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary will be indicted which may remain hanging over her head with many claiming the election is also about whether or not H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary wins and avoids a messy trial dominating every new hour. The Democrat Party now has the luxury of knowing who their candidate will be for the election in November. This can also be a downside as they will face the challenge of keeping their candidate in each news cycle in a positive light avoiding the obvious sinkholes.

What did Super Tuesday do to the two parties can be summarized in two words, H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary and Trump. That will most likely be the candidates the American public will have to choose between. This may be a more interesting race than the pundits might believe as both parties will be facing a single challenge of getting out their voters. Both candidates will necessarily need to announce their preferred appointments to the major cabinet posts such as to define them beyond their own persona of simply thirsting for power. This election will necessarily be a referendum on which of the far from perfect candidates, Trump and H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary, will be capable of bringing forth the votes while leaving the base for the other side from awakening. If history is any measure, H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary would be more likely to manage such a feat as the Democrats have traditionally been better able of getting their voters to the polls and pulling out the close races but that will be made more difficult with their having a wounded candidate in H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary just as the Republicans apparently will also have apparently an injured and bloodied candidate in Donald Trump as he will have challengers continuing through the remainder of the primaries until he freezes all others out in the delegate count. Let the games begin.

Trembling Before Societal Threats

 

What we witnessed in Garland, Texas was the intentional display of one American freedom and the necessary display of a second |American freedom. Though somewhat risky, the first freedom on display was a risky, outright, and in your face expression of free speech, the kind of free speech which Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders have both made their signatory claim to fame though I would be hard pressed to choose which has been more brazen. The third person mentioned in the coverage of the event also is no stranger to controversy though his method is through political writings where Robert Spencer has also challenged Islam and the Western World’s cowardly reaction, something extremely appropriate at this event as here too subjects and brutal truths were the theme of the day. The three are all well-known by the media and often interviewed leading up to and in the aftermath of their often edgy events or their provocative speaking engagements, but this time have been mostly left high and dry by media at both extremes of the political spectrum and many inbetween. What makes this particular series of events an interesting juxtaposition was how the First Amendment right to free speech was so appropriately protected by the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. This was proof in spades that the First Amendment would be worthless without the Second Amendment to protect it and why the Second Amendment needs to be forever protected by the First Amendment. The main spectacle displayed was the depiction on the inexorably changing media view of Draw Mohammad Cartoon events with near universal expressions and even outright support and praise across the political spectrum for the bravery of the original draw Mohammad cartoon contest when it first appeared in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten which published twelve initial editorial cartoons on September 30, 2005; which shrank to largely conservative and libertarian support for Charlie Hebdo Magazine and its slaughtered cartoonists and staff in the assault on their offices by two violent Islamist extremists in Paris, France; to the near universal condemnation from the self-proclaimed stalwarts of the conservative media as well as the liberal media, which has long held out long knives for Pamela Geller, for the event in Garland, Texas sponsored American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) of a Draw Mohammad Art Contest to honor the murdered Charlie Hebdo cartoonists. Equally craven has been the excusing of those condemning this event claiming that the main reason for the sudden timidity exhibited by much of the conservative media has to do with the proximity of the Texas event bringing the kind of threat to people attending one such event from happening in “distant” Europe and bringing it to America’s doorstep and in this they saw in this their own vulnerability to attack by similar forces over much of their former coverage of such events and this motivated the weak-kneed responses as they attempted to back away and distance themselves from such controversial and provocative events.

 

We would be remiss were we not to point out the true hero of the hour who stood single handed, out gunned and facing what must have appeared to be certain death and with the cool and steady hand one could only expect to see on a movie screen, an off-duty police officer who before his heroic stand had been assigned to traffic duty. The statement made by Garland police spokesman Joe Harn stated the obvious, “He did what he was trained to do and under the fire that he was put under, he did a very good job.” I might be tempted to go slightly beyond a “good job” in my description and be inclined to use words like heroic, herculean, courageous and the kind of actions beyond all expectations and more inclined to be witnessed performed by movie heroes than expected from one previously not apparently inclined to such heroics. The officer’s name is being withheld for his own safety and rightly so. Even so, there was a SWAT team also on location placed behind the building just in case they might prove needed, and they would have been except for the gargantuan bravado of a single man to whom many owe their lives. The two would-be jihadists were armed with, according to a law enforcement source close to the investigation, six guns, a mix of assault-style semiautomatic rifles and handguns exited their vehicle firing AK-47s, a high-powered assault style semi-automatic .30-calibre rifles against the lone armed officer with a .45-caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol. Making the standoff even more uneven was the fact the would-be jihadists were wearing full body armor leaving only limited target area vulnerable to the officer’s handgun while he at best was wearing standard police protective jacket which the rifle rounds would have torn through almost effortlessly. Still, when the smoke cleared and by the time the SWAT team arrived on scene from behind the building the lone officer who was accompanying the unarmed security person who had been responsible for checking the tickets of those entering the hall and who did receive injuries, had taken down both perpetrators and did so in under fifteen seconds. That is what is called excellent and efficient gun control, the good guy standing his ground despite being grossly overmatched in firepower and armored protection and yet calmly and coolly took down both threats presented before him. One could continue to lavish praise upon praise and still not match the acts of pure bravado and stouthearted selflessness by this sole brave individual and had preventing the two criminals from gaining entrance to the hall where events were still unfolding.

 

In the aftermath the coverage had mostly been vindictively assailing Pamela Geller claiming that she had endangered people needlessly by her provocative actions. CNN reporter Chris Cuomo accused Pamela Geller in his tweets of being guilty of hate speech is not protected by the Constitution and the First Amendment. Kudos goes to Fox News’s Megyn Kelly shooting down a guest and the host, Bill O’Reilly, on the O’Reilly Factor. According to the presumed intrepid Bill O’Reilly, “It’s always cause and effect, OK? And the cause, because they did it, the two jihadis are dead. Now I know a lot of people aren’t feeling sorry for them, and I’m certainly not either because they were trying to kill other people. However, all right, this is what happens when you light the fuse. You get violence.” This is from the ‘No Spin Zone?’ This sounds more like the ‘Centrifugal Spin Zone’ where the target of Mr. O’Reilly had shot straighter and with less spin than was evidenced on his show. Megyn Kelly’s retort ending the discussion may have appeared over the top but how else does one halt a charging O’Reilly on his own show, so she shot back, “You know what else the jihadis don’t like? They hate Jews. Should we get rid of all Jews? That’s the path we’re gonna go down if we start catering to the jihadis.” Still, she has a point even if the description was a bit coarse and over the top. Then there was one we must credit with getting it correct; Piers Morgan, somebody I likely feel about the same towards as he does Pamela Geller, but he got it right stating, “Pamela Geller is a revolting human being. I despise everything about her, and everything she stands for. Yet I also support her right to free speech.” Very well stated and framing the argument near perfectly. I believe it was attributed to Voltaire as a summation of his attitudes towards free speech where it was succinctly put, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

 

That should be the attitude of every American and every lover of freedom when it comes to free speech. Uncontroversial speech does not need protection. Popular speech needs no protection. Everyday banter at the water cooler needs little protection. Political speech, especially radical speech, that is what needs protection. Pamela Geller, Geert Wilders and Robert Spencer with their Mohammad Cartoon contest and tribute to Charlie Hebdo required protection of free speech and if the two men who came to shoot the purveyors of speech with which they disagreed had instead of baring guns and the intent to use them had instead broken out protest signs and protested replete with their speaking out against the insult they perceived, that too would have deserved protection. Where people may have been offended by somebody’s spoken word, no words spoken have ever killed somebody and if there has been speech which called for violence against others, especially if the intent was purposeful to have people thus act, that is not protected. That is true hate speech which many are attempting to equate Pamela Geller with making. Their argument falls apart under any scrutiny as the only people threatened to become victims of the speech being practiced within the convention hall in Garland, Texas, were the people inside the hall exercising free speech for which two men illegally were attempting of denying them their right to free speech. Had somebody held a counter rally outside the convention hall, they too would have been making protected free speech. But had either the people within the hall or those outside the hall called for their group to proceed to kill the others, that is not protected speech. What so many are getting confused over is the difference between ‘hate speech’ and ‘call to violence speech’. The former is protected while the latter is not protected speech. Where both are a form of hate speech, only the one calling for the commission of violence is illegal. Has everybody forgotten the fight in the courts over the Nazi Party’s plans to march through the largely Jewish community of Skokie, Illinois, outside Chicago where a Nazi concentration camp survivor brought suit to stop their march and the ACLU and some of their lawyers who happened to also be Jewish defending the Nazi right to march won the Nazis defense of their freedom of expression. The march itself never took place and their demonstrations drew less than fifty people total including the media, but they won their day in court against a Jewish man while having Jewish lawyers argue their case, a point they were quite pleased with, but they proved there can be no limit to speech provided there is not call to violence. If Jews can defend the rights for Nazis to march through Skokie, then why have so many former defenders of free speech turned out to have arguments of clay as soon as it becomes slightly dangerous to protect their freedoms? Has the desire to remain free wilted to such an extent that we now must fear the death of those freedoms? I pray not, for the United States should stand for the rights of the weak and the threatened against all threats of violence and do so steadfastly and with the bravery shown by one exemplary actions of a traffic cop who must remain nameless in Garland, Texas. Perhaps if he could depend on all Americans to stand as he did when the chips were falling, then perhaps he would not need to have his name withheld and we could celebrate this man as he deserves.
