One thing that’s become apparent are the large numbers of impeachment supporters who believed the idea the House alone could remove Trump. Not only did they not understand the process, they actually don’t understand the charges either.
More disturbing are the number of the politicians driving the impeachment, who are just as ignorant. Most disturbing to me are those politicians who do exactly that which they accuse Trump… abusing their power.
It is my opinion, the democrats aided and abetted the FBI in defrauding the FISA courts, and secured the most intrusive and clandestine form of investigative tools at the FBI’s disposal to use against Trump. Even with that, they found nothing… But the left cohort is a-okay with it… As long as they can get the orange man, it’s totally ok.
Then when James Comey was fired, for good cause by the way, he then had a friend leak documents to the press, which insinuated the Steele dossier was true. Comey did this even though by that point in time the FBI knew all the allegations in the Steele dossier were false… Yet it achieved its intended purpose: it instigated an independent counsel… and still the left wing cohort is a-okay with it as long as they can get the orange man.
An independent counsel has a very wide scope. It can investigate ANYTHING it wishes, and follow any lead anywhere it goes. The IC investigated Trump for 2 years, and the best Mueller could do was the convictions of 4 people for things that had nothing to do with Trump or the 2016 election. Most salient, Mueller couldn’t substantiate the Steele dossier at all… yet left wing cohort continue to, “BLEEP BLOOP Russian agent BLEEP BLOOP,” in the typical NPC fashion.
Now since calling out kneeling football players didn’t work, emoluments didn’t work, and none of the other attempts to impeach Trump didn’t worked, the democrats decided to impeach Trump, because he asked to investigate corruption that involves democrats.
A rational person who belongs to neither party realizes this for what it is: democrat CYA.
Isn’t it interesting how the democrats in the House rushed to make sure The Impeachment™® preempted the Michael Horowitz hearings in the Senate?
If not for The Impeachment™® the hearings into the Horowitz report would rule the news cycle.
On the political front, the DNC wants to energize it’s base, while also creating a campaign issue for upcoming races for the Senate. The Impeachment™® is key to the democrats achieving their electoral goals.
I fully expect more perfectly timed scandals to preempt the news cycle on other hearings over the Horowitz report, and when John Durham finishes his investigation.
In the end, you’re a lightweight who repeats talking points. Your deepest thought was probably drug induced, because if you truly had a curious mind you would have already read the 400+ pages of Michael Horowitz investigation of Crossfire Hurricane… and you’d realize just how deceitful the democrats have been, in particular, Adam Schiff.
But the news and entertainment media, who act like apparatchiks of the DNC, they’ve been particularly deceitful. A good case in point is the talking point being spread that Horowitz didn’t find political bias. That’s a lie of omission. What Horowitz said was he found no bias in the investigation’s inception, but past the inception he found profound levels of political bias.
All you have to do is read the report, or watch the hearings.
So, right now, I have to consider one of two options… Either left wingers are simply ignorant of how deceitful the entire #resistance bs has been, or they simply don’t care… as long as democrats can get rid of the orange man.
Either way, left wingers are ignorant. In the first instance, they’re literally ignorant. They lack information needed for an informed decision… In the second instance, they’re ignorance is in civics. Their tribe is more important than the nation, but they’ll ignorantly believe what’s important to their tribe should be important to all in the nation, thus can’t envision anyone not agreeing with them on orange man bad.
I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, but I’ll vote for him in 2020.
One thing for certain, the DNC needs to do some house cleaning… It’s turning into the Labour Party. The DNC is supporting anti-Semites and socialism. They want to upend foundational aspects of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, such as the Electoral College, limitations on speech, and expansive gun control.
Americans who want free markets and free speech, don’t want any of that, and they’ll fight to keep it. If the DNC doesn’t realize that, they’ll get ran over by history.
Some other party will take their place.
Yes… Next question?
I’m a coastal liberal — and I was forced to see things from another perspective
I moved to a small town at just the right time in national politics. It feels like the conservative/liberal divide has grown to absurd proportions, and in part it’s become a geographic divide as well as a social one.
I’m a coastal liberal who now lives around rural conservatives, and living here has forced me to see things from another perspective.
My town was settled mostly by Latter-day Saints who worked in ranching and farming. There’s still cattle and farmland interspersed between the burgeoning neighborhoods. Many of the county elders and large landowners are still Mormon farmers and ranchers, and religion is such a big part of life that leaving the church can mean for some people losing social and family ties.
I’ve come to understand the fear some small-town residents have of technology and new ways of working. In cities, people embrace new industries powered by tech and don’t think twice about the demise of agricultural jobs. But when you were raised to be a cowboy, it can be frustrating to discover the only way you can make enough money to buy a house involves computers. I’ve seen this frustration unfortunately get aimed at newcomers to my town, many of whom are college-educated coastal liberals who ride bikes and skis instead of horses.
I would not have seen this very real problem fueling rural discontent had I never left LA, even if I feel like some of that anger is directed at me. But I’ve also gained a new perspective on national issues that I would have missed had I stayed in the city.
For example, after Donald Trump’s election, I saw memes and posts from friends in California talking about how their state should secede, or how sparsely populated states should have their electoral college votes or senate representation reduced.
My first thought was water: Many of the rivers they depend on in California come from headwaters up here. As the saying goes, in Wyoming, “whiskey’s for drinking, and water’s for fighting over.” When I pointed out that to disregard these states could result in dire consequences for water-hungry California, I got attacked by people with whom I agree on 99% of the issues.
