How They Do It–Nice democracy you’ve got there


 

‘Since the Senate is in Republican hands, impeaching and then removing Trump is not likely. Better then to investigate and embarrass him and then after he leaves office to prosecute him for any crimes committed while in office.”

ed note–and, here we go again folks, for those of us who remain steadfastly slow in the ‘political math’ department.

The writer of this piece, Jennifer Rubin–

Is a lying, warmongering, Jewish supremacist gangstress and NeoCon Israel firster who played an indispensable role in ‘selling’ Americans into drinking the koolaid by signing away their tax money, freedoms, and the blood of their children in the form of George Bush’s ‘war on terror’, otherwise known as the ‘clash of civilizations’ between Christianity and Islam. She–working alongside confreres with names such as Bill Kristol, Robert Kagan, Max Boot, Charles Krauthammer, David Frum, Eliot Cohen, etc–have been relentless in their attempt at ‘selling’ the American people into drinking the koolaid AGAIN in the form of impeaching an American President who is pushing for a resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian situation and who has made it clear that he wants no more wars for Israel.

We are forced to point this out due to the depressingly-high percentage of geniuses, experts, and prophets, some of the ‘brightest luminaries’ in fact within the ‘9/11 truth movement’, who find themselves in the peculiar and perplexing circumstance of standing alongside these aforementioned warmongering, Neocon Zionist Jews by lending their voices and their support in causing Trump as much discomfort as possible, thus assisting Israel in her drive to see this guy–

Mike Pence, a died-in-the-wool Christian Zionist, take over as the new occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave per the desires and demands of the other guy in the picture, Bibi Netanyahu, looking at him with obvious great interest and with grand plans in his eyes…

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, and for the simple reason that there are still quite a few out there who just don’t seem to ‘get it’ yet–

Gangsters don’t shoot the horses they have bet all their money on to win in a race they have fixed. They give them an open road to 1st place and only a political dolt who has as much business performing brain surgery as they do rendering commentary and analysis on complex and oftentimes convoluted political drama can’t see this.

Since the Democrats won the majority in the House, flipped at least seven governorships and won back majorities in multiple statehouses, President Trump has done the following–

1. Abused the media and violated the First Amendment by taking away Jim Acosta’s press credentials (while Trump’s press secretary sent around a doctored video, in true Stalinist fashion);

2. Threatened to investigate the House if the House does its oversight job;

3. Alleged, without any evidence, “Election Fraud” in two Florida counties, suggesting that he’d use “law enforcement” to secure a GOP win in the Senate race there”

4. Unconstitutionally appointed a vocal critic of the Russia probe, Matthew Whitaker, as acting attorney general; and

5. Unilaterally plans to amend our asylum laws.

In case you thought Trump was going to straighten up, constitutionally speaking, after losing the protection of House Republicans, think again. Like a wounded animal, he is lashing out at the press, immigrants, and Democrats. Is he “getting away with it” again?

Not really.

For starters, retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) tweeted that ‘When the Senate convenes next week, @ChrisCoons and I will ask for unanimous consent to bring S.2644, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, to a vote on the Senate floor. After the firing of The AG, it is more important than ever to protect the Special Counsel.’

Trump’s actions will continue to provoke division among Republicans, forcing some to criticize him and others to embarrass themselves by remaining mute. In the former category, Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) tweeted, “Under Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, it is imperative that the important work of the Justice Department continues, and that the Mueller investigation proceeds to its conclusion unimpeded.”

In addition, the courts will be there to check Trump, as we saw in the latest ruling disallowing him from discontinuing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). With regard to the new acting attorney general, lawsuits will fly challenging virtually any action he takes. George Conway (Kellyanne’s husband and a Federalist Society lawyer) and Neal Katyal explain, “Mr. Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional. It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.”)

Some of Trump’s threats are patently ridiculous. He’s really going to get the GOP Senate to investigate the House for conducting oversight that Republicans failed to do? Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) said, “I’m not sure Mr. Trump understands that we’re independent branches of government. And that the legislative branch was set up to be an appropriate check and balance on an executive.” Laughing at the president’s most outlandish ideas is a fine retort, an underutilized tactic against a president with a jumbo ego.

In Florida, as in other states, voting is largely a state responsibility. Lawyers are descending on Florida in a echo of the 2000 election. Gov. Rick Scott is irresponsibly alleging fraud, but ultimately local officials and the courts will determine the result.

Back inside the Beltway, House Democrats will have the power to hold hearings, subpoena witnesses and documents, and hold non-complying witnesses in contempt. Shining a light on the administration’s skullduggery will strengthen the hand of those resisting improper order and give underlings pause about cooperating. Moreover, the House will slowly build the case for removing — by election in 2020, most likely — Trump and his Senate enablers. That worked well in the midterms, and a campaign built around the inarguable proposition that Trump is abusing his power may help reassemble a winning coalition for Democrats.

The Trump resistance, including groups such as Nobody Is Above the Law, also continue to protest peacefully, both laying down a marker in defense of democratic norms and keeping their own voters engaged and enthusiastic. Trump remains the Democrats’ best organizing tool.

What is not, in all likelihood, going to be possible is to impeach and remove Trump. The Senate will remain in GOP hands, making removal (requiring a two-thirds majority) almost inconceivable. Impeaching without removing Trump undoubtedly would fire up his cult and provide weird vindication. Better to investigate, embarrass and — after he leaves office — prosecute him for any crimes (e.g. obstruction of justice) taken in office.

    SARAH SILVERMAN (and I’m sure many others) got their talking points from their co-religionist Rubin, since the word “cult” is now being thrown around to describe millions of Americans who voted for Trump to try and save the mess these mf-ing Yews have made of this constitutional republic.

    As per usual, Rubin is just another Yew guilty of PROJECTION. Sometimes I do wonder how long a reign God has granted to these vipers, freaks and miscreants. But I wonder MORE why it is that GOOD MEN don’t have the intestinal fortitude to ‘sack up’ and sweep them away, lawfully of course. There are still greater numbers of normal people than there are these hive-minded freaks.

    This is what they think and how they operate:
