Trump Wants Revenge

Now we are sure, besides all his other faults, Donald Trump is a terrible loser and a terrible winner. After obliterating the Democrats relating to a Russian conspiracy and two articles of impeachment, the president fired back with both guns blazing at his political opponents, as reported in the New York Times.

Trump “exacted payback” at a prayer breakfast shortly after the impeachment trial ended in acquittal. “Choosing retaliation,” the president “lashed out” at all the Dems involved in a massive attempt to undo the 2016 election and eliminate him from consideration in 2020. Mitt Romney, a Republican senator who voted for one of the impeachment articles, was also a target of Mr. Trump.

At the breakfast, Trump “denounced the evil and crooked” lawmakers and the “top scum” at the FBI for attempting to end his presidency.

The president and his aides believe that the Dems “should pay for” the impeachment debacle. In fact, G.O.P. senators are now focusing on alleged Ukrainian corruption perpetrated by Joe Biden and his son Hunter. This could very well dash Biden’s aspirations to be the next president.

Here is a list of derogatory comments made by Trump during the breakfast diatribe. [Comments taken from aforementioned Times article]

 

  • The [impeachment] investigation was evil.
  • Dirty cops in government.
  • Leakers and liars.
  • The impeachment should never have happen to a president.
  • [Nancy Pelosi] was disingenuous saying she prayed for [Trump].
  • The impeachment was all bullsh-t.
  • James Comey is a sleazeball.
  • Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok are lowlifes.
  • Mitt Romney is a failed presidential candidate who used religion as a crutch.
  • Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician.

Note: It’s difficult to believe our elected officials speak in this way about each other. The other side did more than their fair share of name-calling during the impeachment proceedings.

Donald Trump should have left the dirty work to his staff and taken the high road. He has more than enough to be proud of. Taking off on a rant about his sworn enemies only drags him down to their level. The electorate just might warm up to him if he ended his poisonous and unproductive rhetoric.

Trump should be totally focused on his good work relating to the economy, low unemployment, new jobs, a bull stock market, major concessions in new trade deals and the assassination of another important terrorist. But instead he continues a war of words with the incompetent Democratic leadership.

If you assume Trump wins in 2020, which I think is the likely outcome, reconciliation between the major parties will be a long time coming. The president should take the first step in changing the current environment. But we all know that it won’t happen.

In the meantime, Democratic socialists running for president are attacking each other, and Iowa Democrats don’t know how to add, so its primary results are being contested. Maybe Bloomberg will save the party, but people in Davenport, Iowa probably never heard of him.

An Acquittal Is Imminent

Time is running out for House Managers in their quest to impeach Donald Trump and undo the 2016 presidential election. They tried everything to discredit and embarrass the president, who steadfastly deflected criticism on social media and with noteworthy success regarding the economy, trade and diplomacy. You may not appreciate the man’s style, but he has gotten many things done in recent months.

You can always sense when the opposition is getting frustrated. The whining and exasperation grows, the facts become more distorted, and they begin to suggest that 60 million people who voted for Trump are idiots. It’s never the shortcomings of the opposition’s arguments; it’s always someone else’s inability to grasp the facts.

The White House counsels have been eating Schiff’s and Nadler’s lunch for several days. The House Managers looked like rank amateurs. Their version of the truth has been overwhelmed by their reliance on innuendo, second hand gossip and hyperbole.

Professor Dershowitz has many people thinking that Trump’s behavior, although brash, dangerous and un-statesmanlike, was not impeachable. Frankly, it was sad to see Schiff and Nadler go head to head with Dershowitz. The latter has been teaching and researching constitutional law for 50 years. His opinions are significant, even if they are controversial. The congressmen were out of their league.

But it didn’t stop there. The White House counsels provided devastating testimony that clearly indicates that Trump should not be impeached. They provided, what else, facts and quotes from Democratic witnesses. The White House gang bludgeoned the Dems with irrefutable truth. Law students will be studying their arguments and technique for years to come.

But the real kicker is that there is no proof that Trump traded missiles for an investigation of the corrupt Biden family, or that keeping presidential conversations confidential for security reasons is a crime.

Give it up Schumer. You lost big time. The presidential election is a lock for Trump. You should spend your time trying to minimize losses in Congress for the next nine months.

White House Counsel Bludgeons House Managers

Time is running out for House Managers in their quest to impeach Donald Trump and undo the 2016 Election. They have tried everything to discredit and embarrass the president, who has steadfastly deflected his opponents on social media and with noteworthy success dealing with the economy, trade and diplomacy. You may not like Trump’s style, but he has gotten many things done in recent months.

You can always tell when the opposition is getting frustrated. The whining and exasperation grows, their facts become more muddled and they ask questions like, “how can 65 million Americans be so stupid and support Trump.” It’s never the shortcomings of the opposition; failure is always someone else’s fault or an inability to grasp the “facts.”

The White House counsels have been eating Schiff’s and Nadler’s lunch, especially during the questioning on Wednesday. The House Managers looked like first year law students and rank amateurs. Their grasp of facts, not innuendo, second hand gossip and hyperbole, was seriously deficient.

Professor Dershowitz has many people thinking that Trump’s behavior, although brash, dangerous, un-statesmanlike and insulting, was in no way impeachable. All of the conversations the president had regarding Ukraine might have been disturbing, but not enough so for him to be convicted and ousted from office.

Frankly, it was sad and pathetic to see Schiff and Nadler go head to head with Dershwitz. The latter has been teaching law for 50 years. The congressmen were way out of their league.

But it didn’t stop there. The White House counsel provided devastating testimony that clearly indicates that Trump should not be impeached and convicted by providing, what else, facts and quotes from House witnesses. The White House guys and gal bludgeoned the Dems with irrefutable truth. Law students will be studying their arguments for years to come.

But the real kicker is that there is no proof that Trump traded missiles for investigation of the corrupt Biden family, and keeping presidential conversations for security reasons is not a crime.

Give it up Schumer. You lost big time. The presidential election is a lock for Trump. You should spend your time trying to minimize losses in Congress for the next nine months.

 

End The Sh– Storm In The Senate Now

Americans have power-hungry Democrats to thank for creating such an unproductive tempest and constitutional confrontation. Our government is in crisis because of the venom directed at our president. Love him or not, he was duly elected and deserves to be treated with respect and given the chance to defend himself. He should be protected by the rule of law.

In the meantime, our government is in total paralysis as the bureaucrats and Trump-haters parse every action and every word uttered by the president since he took office three plus years ago. The team defending Trump is going to destroy the incompetent and lying band of misfits that presented a weak impeachment of Trump.

It’s now obvious that Pelosi didn’t follow the rules associated with impeachment. She is not the source of authority in the House and cannot unilaterally order her colleagues to begin proceedings. She neglected to obtain approval of the entire House to move forward with actions by its committees. It’s one person, one vote in the House.

The Trump team is eviscerating everything that the House incompetents have bored us with for 24 hours last week. A basis of impeachment is not apparent. There was no crime and all accusations are hearsay. None of the people who testified against Trump actually heard incriminating words. It was second, third and fourth hand information. The State Department officials are seemingly a bunch of gossiping biddies hanging around the water cooler and looking for ways to make a splash and get on TV.

But in the end, Trump authorized and delivered the now infamous Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. In fact, everyone concurs that Trump has done more to protect Ukraine from Russia than any other president.

Trump invited the Ukraine president to the US on three separate occasions, and they met without any preconditions or quid pro quos.

There has been no investigation of Burisma or the Bidens after all that has taken place. This is likely to change very soon as the corruption affiliated with the former vice president and his son is too overwhelming to ignore.

Trump has been fighting corruption around the world since he took office. It was a campaign promise to do so. He cancelled support to several countries at the same time that Ukraine was being evaluated for corrupt activities.

The president of the US is the top diplomatic officer. He has the constitutional authority to set policies, hire and fire diplomats and to take actions against other countries. A House that disagrees with his policies cannot impeach him.

The president has the right to keep conversations with his cabinet, staff, advisors and other foreign leaders confidential. This right enables the president to be effective as he navigates through sensitive discussions, and considers different options. Executive privilege has proven to be invaluable throughout American history and applied by every modern day president. Therefore the president is legally able to censor any individual that attempts to reveal national security sensitive information, including John Bolton.

The president’s attorneys have taken the opportunity to put into perspective the power of impeachment. It’s a proceeding that should be used sparingly because it can undo the election of a president. All other business of Congress ceases until impeachment is complete.

One of the fears of the founding fathers was that an unbridled opposition House of Representatives would impeach and turn the government head over heels for matters that should be decided with negotiation and/or by the courts.

The current impeachment is the third such action in the last 45 years. The only other presidential impeachment took place a hundred years earlier. The worst fears of the founding fathers have taken place. Impeachment is now too ubiquitous.

The current accusations by the House are based upon supposition, second hand knowledge and gossip. The House presumes too much and knows too little. Impeachment is supposed to be the last resort for crimes by the leader of our country. Serious crimes like treason are the real focus of this type of justice.

And finally, since when is someone (like the president) guilty until proven innocent. Why do we allow story mongers among the press to create sh—storms based upon innuendo and supposition? Where is the honor and devotion to sacrosanct journalistic tenets?

The impeachment and the trial should be dispensed with immediately. Trump cannot be convicted of anything. We need our lawmakers to do the business of the people, not to amuse misinformed zealots in the House who collect pens.

The Senate Will Not Convict Trump

Despite the avalanche of information and disinformation regarding the impeachment and trial of Donald Trump, there are only a few relatively simple issues that dominate the proceedings.

The venom that Democrats sport towards the president is driving them to conduct a campaign that cannot be successful. They are trying with all their might to convince the American people (and their Republican colleagues) to disparage the man who is our elected president. In essence they are saying that Trump is a “bad person” who has no right to be president, and this recognition warrants impeachment, and conviction in the Senate.

Liberals control the House and were able to have their moment when all decisions favored the impeachment effort. The proceedings were rigged against Trump because the investigative committees were led and controlled by some of the most partisan lawmakers in Washington.

The moment cannot be extended for two specific reasons. One is that the Senate is controlled by the opposition and will not do anything to endanger the president’s position. Republicans are not going to willingly recruit more witnesses (in fact they will block these efforts) with their 53-47 majority. Democrats had their time and should expect no cooperation from Trump loyalists.

The other major fact is that the indictments of Trump are bogus. It’s going to be impossible to overcome the stark reality that the president has the constitutional right to make foreign policy decisions. If he believes any American is acting corruptly, the president can legitimately conduct an investigation. So Trump was well within his authority to have Ukraine look into the fishy activities of the son of then Vice President Joe Biden. If Trump benefits politically from the action, so be it. Therefore the first impeachment article of self-dealing by the president is moot.

An undeniable and firmly established presidential privilege is that of executive privilege. The basis of the second impeachment article revolves around executive privilege. The law allows the president great latitude to keep certain information discussed with his staff and other world leaders confidential. This privilege greatly empowers the president who would be much less effective if required to disclose all sensitive conversations.

Correspondingly, the power of the Legislative branch is diminished by executive privilege. The battle between two branches of the government is not new, and nothing will change the balance of power that exists today. And certainly, the president will not lose his job because he exercised this authority.

The attitude of Democrats to think that the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans, would cooperate in the indictment of the president is naïve. The Senate is not going to redo what the House incompetently did previously.

Democrats have only one avenue to pursue in the Senate. That is to solicit the four or five Republicans who may be interested in calling new witnesses. It’s unlikely that any great discoveries will be made, and the Senate would then move for acquittal.

If the interviews take place and a huge revelation ensues, it would still be a long shot to oust the president because 67 votes would be needed to convict.

Unfortunately the Senate and the voting public will be subjected to never ending partisan claptrap for the next few weeks.

 

McConnell Is Going To Spank Democratic Senators

Democrats are making a last ditch effort to create a constitutional and democratic crisis for our country. Yet, their efforts to impeach President Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors is petering out because rabid liberals in the House still have been unable to prove that the president did anything illegal that rises to the level suggested by our Constitution.

After parading around the Capitol in a bizarre and melodramatic fraternity-like ritual (reminiscent of “Animal House” with no robes), and a joyous celebration led by Speaker Pelosi that was highlighted by deal gifts for her co-conspirators (pens that were used to sign the impeachment articles), the proceedings now go to the Senate where, hopefully, adults will prevail.

Democrats will try to secure more witnesses, encourage new revelations and give the liberal press more opportunities to do their dirty work of propagating false news. But, Sen. McConnell is going to put an end to this destructive melodrama. A vote to acquit will likely occur soon, and Congress can get back to work.

Murderers, drug dealers, kidnappers and those who have committed treason have been treated more fairly than a sitting president. Democrats are screaming that Trump is hiding something nefarious that will threaten our democracy and 2020 election. Nonsense!

In the meantime liberal lawmakers have prevented our elected officials from doing they nation’s business for months. To Trump’s credit, he has forged ahead to accomplish great things for our economy, for minorities financially and for our national defense. The president has proven he can multitask even while Democrats nip at his heals.

Liberals have not learned that it’s impossible to impeach and convict a sitting president because he or she is not a nice person. There is no provision in the Constitution that requires more than half the citizens to like the president. In fact, many who support him do not like Trump.

What is laughable is that Democratic political gurus are celebrating an impeachment to nowhere even as their candidates are losing ground to Trump in the presidential campaign. If the witch-hunt gang, the dingbats who lead House committees, had any brains they would end the Trump hunt and focus on winning in 2020.

But no, there are legacies and reputations to build and destroy. Thankfully our country is so strong that it can repel the idiots who are working so hard to denigrate it.

With a booming economy, a skyrocketing stock market, progress on several fronts internationally, Trump is unbeatable by the rag-tag group of socialists. The New York Times has spoken and endorsed Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar. The editorial board is backing two candidates. But only one can be elected. Even the Times is losing its mind by seemingly proposing a joint presidency, I guess, filled by two white females. Is diversity an issue for the Times?

Watch today as the Republicans give Democrats some of the same medicine dolled out by House Democrats. There will be no mercy.

Pelosi Is Doomed

Nancy Pelosi is known to be a prolific fundraiser for her colleagues and a decent leader of the House of Representatives, until recently. Her decisions relating to the impeachment of President Trump have tarnished her legacy and have put the Democratic Party in peril.

Speakers of the House have very important roles to play. Among other things they must decide the order of business for the House. Additionally they must convince even the most independent and uncooperative members of their caucus to vote with the majority on important matters. Pelosi has failed in both regards during many agonizing months of Trump-bashing.

The Speaker has the responsibility to keep order and decorum and to abide by the Constitution. The venomous attitude from the first day of the Trump administration has done nothing other than to make a mockery of our political system. We have stooped to a level where every day a politician is calling others liars. The House is a hotbed for name-calling and disrespect

Several months ago Pelosi was dead set against impeaching President Trump unless there was bipartisan support for such a monumental undertaking. Rightly so, she resisted the unbridled and un-statesmen like urgings of new members of her caucus and some old members who despised the man that resided in the White House. Unfortunately for our democracy, our government, rule of law and respect among our lawmakers, Pelosi caved and sanctioned the unthinkable.

She agreed to move forward with impeachment without considering the weakness of the case against the president. Pelosi stood by and enabled left wing zealots to conduct a kangaroo court. She even allowed her colleagues to dash the rights of the accused. Witnesses were not called that had first hand knowledge. She and her liberal associates did what they were accusing Trump of, they attempted to influence an election.

The zealots pushed forward even though conviction was impossible. Republicans held a strong Senate majority and would never convict Trump of impeachable offenses given the flimsy evidence drummed up by Democrats. Pelosi knew this as well and yet she sanctioned the unholy trial of the president. She was persuaded to move ahead if it somehow would damage Trump’s chances in 2020. We know now that the opposite has happened- Trump has never seemed stronger.

How have Democrats hurt our country and it political system? Here is an abbreviated list.

 

  • Democrats conducted an impeachment proceeding that subverted the entire government. Everyone was focused on incriminating evidence and a smoking gun. They never materialized.
  • Important matters relating to defense, immigration, education, voting rights, income inequality, terrorism, nuclear proliferation, health care and so much more were put on the backburner so liberals could conduct their three ring circus.
  • Democrat lawmakers lied in their zeal to convict. The leaders of the committees that presented the impeachment were guilty of twisting and exaggerating and the truth.
  • Democrats trashed the rule of law.
  • Democrats did nothing to encourage a bipartisan proceeding. They ignored all requests by the opposition.
  • The impeachment was supported only by innuendo, gossip and second-hand testimony.
  • Democrats kept feeding unrealistic expectations to the liberal press, which was duped in the process.
  • Democrats indicated that Trump’s persona and attitude alone was impeachable. Not being nice is not an impeachable offense.
  • All comity between lawmakers has been lost. It will be a generation before it returns.
  • New rules by the House and violations of precedent will encourage frivolous efforts to impeach future presidents.
  • Democrats ignored the role of courts to deal with issues between the branches of government for expediency.

 

So, where are we now? Pelosi decided to not deliver articles of impeachment for a few weeks, thereby delaying the Senate trial. [Note: the articles are supposedly coming this week.] This will have an effect on the impending presidential campaign schedule and the primaries in several states.

Pelosi was holding on to get concessions from the Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell. She got nothing and will pay for her mismanagement along with her liberal confederates.

Many Democrats are now concerned that their political lives have been jeopardized by Pelosi, based upon the impeachment hoax. It just might come to pass.

Democrat Lies And The Impeachment Hoax

I’m disgusted and frustrated by the ongoing spectacle of impeachment that is taking place in Washington and have a strong sense that my readers are equally ashamed and disillusioned by the behavior of our elected officials.

The problem I have is based upon the underhanded, unfair and deceitful actions of House Democrats to effectively attempt a coup d’état of the US Government.

Donald Trump has contributed greatly to the current imbroglio. He’s a despicable person, and one that I didn’t vote for in 2016 and have no intention of voting for in 2020. My blog, Softball Politics, has repeatedly criticized the president’s un-statesmanlike persona, attitude, racism, self-aggrandizement and narcissism.

Our current leader is not the kind of person we should have in the White House. Nevertheless, he won the 2016 Election, in spite of all his shortcomings.

All the twisted and partisan crap relating to collusion between Trump and Russia has been debunked. Frankly, Trump’s minions didn’t, and still don’t have, the experience or the chops to orchestrate a voter fraud on a national level. There should be no concern that Trump will do anything sinister in 2020 regarding the election.

Trump has surprised Americans and the rest of the world with shrewd gambits. He’s crude in his execution, but you can’t deny that the US economy is moving ahead great guns. Trump has exposed the inequities in economic and strategic military agreements. He has no inhibition about calling out anyone who attempts to cheat our country. The president has been an unfaltering supporter of Israel. Many of his domestic policies have positively impacted the employment and lifestyles of minorities.

But disingenuous liberals are leading too many Americans down a primrose path. House Democrats have convinced each other that a sitting president is fair game for frivolous impeachment charges in the interest of partisan politics. In reality a president should only be threatened by the specter of impeachment if he has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, and his accusers can prove it.

The same group of Democrats who bungled every aspect of the Russian collusion fiasco has trumped up new charges that at one point or another involved bribery, abuse of power, obstruction of Congress and other lesser accusations that, even if proven, do not rise to the level of impeachable offenses. Yet, with the majority in the House, Democrats are wasting time and money in a monstrous hoax.

In fact, the Democrats are the ones guilty of abuse of power. They have twisted hearsay and innuendo into impeachable indictments of the president. These malcontent politicians are sanctimonious liars whose mission in life is to destroy a US president who sees the world differently than they do. Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler have created a constitutional crisis. This was unnecessary because in a few short months Americans will have the opportunity to vote for Trump, or one of his Democratic rivals.

I’m sickened by the thought of hearing more of Trump’s hyperbole and inarticulate blathering about his greatness. Yet I’m even more disheartened that House Democrats have exceeded their constitutional authority. Deposing a president should only be possible if you can prove high crimes with real evidence according to the rule of law.

 

House Democrats Erode Our Democratic System

House Democrats have seriously damaged our democracy. Their relentless pursuit of dubious charges against the president has created a constitutional crisis. House actions to this point have blurred the lines of power between the three major branches of our government.

The founders created a mechanism to depose a president if he or she oversteps their authority. At the same time they were careful about delineating crimes of a president that might qualify him or her for impeachment. They used words like high crimes and misdemeanors that portray a guilty president as one who is detrimental to our democracy because his crimes were heinous under any circumstances. Visions of treason, sedition and murder are the crimes that come to mind.

The founders certainly didn’t envision presidents being ousted for speculative indiscretions that couldn’t be proven or were based upon hearsay without being processed under the rule of law. Keep in mind almost all of the initial testifiers in the Judiciary Committee’s investigation of Trump had second and third hand information about the president’s actions and conversations. Most of the evidence was hearsay that wouldn’t be admissible in a court of law. When the proceedings move to the Senate, the president will benefit by the usual amenities of a court of law that will include facing accusers (including the whistle-blower), representation by counsel and calling witnesses.

But the real damage by Democratic shenanigans over the past few weeks is that impeachment is now a tool readily available to any opposition-led majority in the House of Representatives. For frivolous and unpopular actions future presidents will be subjected to yet another three-ring circus, as we witnessed in recent weeks. The bar for impeachment is now on the ground as if we were prosecuting a common thief, as opposed to the leader of the free world.

The lesson about “lowering the bar” should have been obvious to liberal lawmakers in the House based upon a similar episode in the Senate a few years ago. For decades the filibuster was used to stymie appointments to federal courts by the minority. Democrats, in frustration, changed the rules of the Senate enabling senators to confirm judges with a simple majority, and not a super majority, for all judges except Supreme Court justices.

Democrats, thinking that they outwitted their rivals, disregarded the reality that they might face if control reverted back to Republicans, which it did. Republicans, upon assuming power changed the rule further to include Supreme Court justices. Democrats objected, but were drowned out by their own stupidity.

The result was confirmation of a series of young conservative justices to the highest court in the land that will affect the law and our society for many years. It was a naïve and tragic miscalculation.

Here we are at the same crossroads. Prospectively, Americans should expect a hair trigger when Republicans regain the House, which could be in 2020 even if Trump loses the presidency. If Warren is elected, perhaps Republicans will impeach her for lying about her background to the electorate and to Harvard University when she applied for a position at the law school.
