We The People - Not Anymore
The advent of the twenty-four-hour news cycle and the amount of on-air time they devote to politics are - in my opinion - responsible for the American public’s seemingly insatiable appetite for all things political and the strong opinions that are encouraged and influenced by the obviously biased outlets.
Whatever the reason, Americans are neck-deep in political intrigue, in the drama, the farce, the rhetoric, the partial truths and the downright lies the face time addicts propagate and it just depends on which day of the week you catch the mendacious ones as to what you will hear come out of your mouth.
Adam Schiff is a prime example. For years he has told us that he had evidence of Russian collusion by President Trump, but was never willing to share it.
After the Mueller report destroyed that little fabrication he immediately moved on to obstruction of justice, and before that stone even got through the door of his glass house, being the opportunist that he is, jumped out of the frying pan into the fire into the arms of a “whistle-blower” who claimed to have second hand information about a phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine where the American president tried to blackmail the Ukrainian president into gathering dirt on a potential rival 2020 presidential candidate.
And the handling of said whistle-blower would be the closest held secret since the Manhattan Project, with nobody except Schiff’s Intelligence Committee members being present, a secret partisan interrogation to protect the whistle-blower’s identity and the world-shaking information he would divulge during this covert closeting.
And then, the unthinkable happened, President Trump released the transcript of the phone call once more cutting the ground out from under the feet of the impeachment obsessed congressman.
And in the middle of all this three-ring circus of political scatology “Dame” Nancy Pelosi has called for an “impeachment inquiry” she says it must be done for the house to do their constitutional duty, but truth be known it has little to do with the house or the constitution and has everything to do with the Democratic Party.
It may be a good idea for Ms. Pelosi to read the document she purports to abide by because the Constitution says, verbatim:
“The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”
It says “the sole power,” it does not delegate authority to preside over an impeachment.
It does not say the Speaker shall have the sole power of impeachment, but the House implying that the whole House of Representatives must be involved with any scenario involving impeachment, an “impeachment inquiry” notwithstanding.
Since an inquiry is a preamble to an actual impeachment and the beginning of the process, it should consist of a vote by the entire House of Representatives, anything less is invalid.
Ms. Pelosi, we all know why you don’t want a vote because you are afraid that some of your members who won election in 2018 in Trump territory would lose their seats in 2020, which tells the world that you don’t care about the will of the people, not even enough to let them know the truth.
And one of the many shames is that there are places in your and Adam Schiff’s districts in California that resemble garbage dumps and open latrines.
Is this a microcosm of the America your party wants to subvert the will of the people to bring to America?
If you and Schiff were not playing politics, if you really thought Trump was guilty, you would Immediately launch impeachment proceedings.
You stand on shaky ground Ma’am, and as they say in your part of the world, “The big one is coming!”
What do you think?
Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
