Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve made it clear that I feel neither Donald Trump nor Bill Clinton deserved to be impeached, but at least Bill Clinton faced a fair, ACTUAL impeachment proceeding. The hopelessly corrupt Democrats are subjecting President Trump to a bizarre “Impeachment INQUIRY” which deprives him and the House Republicans of any rights they would have under a REAL impeachment procedure.
What the Democrats are launching today is the public version of the Beria-style Show Trial they’ve been running to replace their failed Russian Collusion farce. Here are some excerpts from a terrific piece about the fascist railroading that Democrats are running. Link is below:
From Roger Simon – like me a former Democrat driven away by what the party has become:
“The crime they (the Democrats) are trying to show is, well… nothing that is real. As in Stalin’s time, what is about to go public Wednesday for everybody to watch is naught but a “show trial,” much like the trial of the British engineers and the yet more ominous Great Purge. Only it is an opéra bouffe version led by Adam Schiff (photo at right), a failed screenwriter with a proven inability to distinguish fact from fiction. Thank God there’s no Gulag where he can send people.”
“But let’s give a look at what he and his cronies claim they are trying to show—some kind of presidential corruption regarding Ukraine. Some so-called whistleblower with a name no one’s supposed to know but everybody does (Ciaramella) accused Trump of threatening Ukrainian President Zelensky umpteen times with withholding U.S. aid if Zelensky did not investigate the activities of his political opponent and the opponent’s son.”
“As it turned out, when the transcript of the actual phone call was produced, it was a good deal less than that. It’s likely the hyperpartisan whistleblower, who never heard the call in the first place, lied through his teeth for political reasons he thinks—in all his virtue-signaling narcissism—are justified.”
NOTE FROM BALLADEER: And besides, MANY presidential administrations have used the threat of withholding American aid as leverage when pursuing their goals. Obama did it to Israel. Democrats running for president are threatening to do that AGAIN to Israel if they get elected. Yes, with a complete lack of self-awareness their own candidates are promising to do what they claim is an impeachable offense when President Trump does it.
And remember, we know that Obama used THE UKRAINE to get info on Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.
“… Also not allowed is any word on the father-son corruption (Biden und Sohn) which is clearly monstrous, worth millions, even billions, and has a direct effect on our relationship with China (which old Joe, the law school plagiarist, assured us was fine and not to be concerned about).“
“But the actual “favor” (that was the word used) being asked for on the phone by Trump to Zelensky was about CrowdStrike, not about the Bidens, who were an afterthought … It’s the digital firm with roots in California and Ukraine that was hired by the Clinton-associated law firm Perkins Coie to investigate the break-in of the DNC server during election 2016. When CS reported it was the Russians, that was accepted at face value by the FBI. Why the FBI, with all their vaunted cyber facilities, did not do this themselves is open to question—and everybody in the Beltway cesspool knows it, all the despicable creeps wringing their hands over Trump. Omertà rules in Washington, especially among the Democrats and the media (of all places).”
“They all know that the real investigation is in progress—what happened early in 2016 and thereafter that instigated the two-plus years of phony national hysteria known as the Russia probe, the probe that did everything it could, but thankfully failed, to upend the Trump administration. The characters who engineered this shouldn’t just be impeached—some have already lost their jobs—they should be sent to stir.”
“This whole show trial would just be an amusing farce in the farcical land of D.C. politics were it not for one thing—it just could (not likely, but could) be successful. And if it is, that’s the end of our country as we know it. Half of our citizens will feel completely disenfranchised. Where it will go from there is anybody’s guess.” Continue reading
