Biden Should Stop Trump Re-Impeachment

BidenLet us be painfully clear – and fast in clarity. If Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer re-impeach Donald Trump – twisting an established legal standard for “incitement” to match their disdain for Trump – bad things follow. Here is how that works – and why Biden should call them off.

Democrats will move to impeach this week, giddy over controlling both chambers.  They will ditch due process, and any semblance of established constitutional procedure. They will have to, as time is short for ousting a president due to leave office anyway in eleven days.

The idea of a measured, multi-month parliamentary inquiry, traditionally premised on dutiful committee work, sound procedure, articulation of historical bases for “high crimes or misdemeanors,” legal representation, fidelity to tradition and honor – will have to be tossed.

The mad dash to impeach – claiming Trump’s injudicious, improvident, reckless remarks amount to “insurrection,” since an unruly mob overran the Capitol – is already well along.

Truth be told, the fast track, slap-dash impeachment may succeed, since that spectacle of violence at the Capitol, resulting in five deaths, was horrifying. Visuals left emotional imprints.

If the case is made that President Trump intended these events, the House and Senate could move like lightening, making the attempted impeachments of Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and even the earlier Trump impeachment mockery – look like child’s play.

But here is the arresting reality, which ought to stop Democrats cold.  If this sober constitutional remedy for “high crimes and misdemeanors” is – in some slipshod, venal way – reconceived, legally twisted, procedurally accelerated, and suddenly redefined, no president will escape it.

Let me specific.  Who does not think, in all honesty, if a power-drunk, fast-tracking Democrat mob in House and Senate exact political vengeance with instant impeachment, a similar move would not emerge in two years, going directly after Biden or Harris, if House and Senate flip?

Is this what Democrats and Republicans want?  What any American leader or citizen should want – a suddenly common, debilitating default to presidential impeachments? We are already at the border of that constitutional nightmare – one our Founders would firmly foreswear.

When Democrats unilaterally changed Senate rules for confirming judges, giving their party a sudden leg up on appointments under a Democrat president, they imagined the more historically hesitant, procedurally attentive, often demur, traditional Republicans would not follow suit.

How did that work out?  Ask any Democrat how they feel about President Trump’s 220 new federal judges and three new Justices.  Point is simple:  If you cheapen the process for partisan gain, you forget an iron rule of Washington DC and of politics: What goes around comes around.

Democrats should not expect a more conservative, traditional, history-minded Republican majority – with a 50-50 chance of flipping both House and Senate in 2022 – will forget.  No, reality is a swift, pointless, legally unsound impeachment of President Trump – conducted like a Communist kangaroo court in just eleven days – is a shout destined to echo a hundred years.

And the first echo, if history is our guide, could be as early as 2023, two years from now.  If discretion is the better part of valor, wisdom the distillate of reason, mercy a balance for justice, decency and respect touchstone of good leaders, this senseless impeachment should be tabled, in favor of holding onto whatever dignity Congress has left.

While this may mean nothing in our shrill political times, rife with vengeance – most living Americans and a majority of those who came before, would say stop this useless impeachment.  That said, unless Biden weighs in – claiming magnanimity – the impeachment gambit will go forward.  That would be a blow to the Republic as great as recent violence, arguably far worse.

I think that impeaching a President who is already out of office is about as smart as bringing dead murderers to trial, finding them guilty, and sentencing them to death.

In 2022, we need to re-elect no incumbent. We need for hundreds of true conservatives to run
and they need to identify themselves now. The 2022 primary is much more important than the
Nov 2022 vote.

Those obsessed with Trump will need a lobotomy this week. What will they be doing ? Their jobs ?
I’m speaking of Nancy, Swalwell ( the chi-com spy), Nadler, Shifty, Romney and that crowd.

The Dems would be ecstatic for the Repubs to impeach Biden in a couple of years. It has ALWAYS been their intention to remove Biden from office at some point to allow their real choice for President, Kommie Harris to assume the office. A Repub impeachment would absolve them of the responsibility of having to come up with another reason for removal. It would give them another brickbat to bludgeon Repubs with. The Repubs are too linguini spined to go through with it though. They’re going to be cowering under their chairs for the next two years, chewing their fingernails down to the quick over whether they will be able to be re-elected in 2022. They’ll be dam(m)ed by the Dems if they support Trump and dam(m)ed by 70 million Trump supporters if they don’t. They’re just going to have to decide who holds the power over their fate in their hands. Will Trump support fade as time passes or will it only grow stronger as the persecution of him, his family and supporters accelerates under the (Biden)/Harris administration?

The Socialist, liberal left along with the Republican Rhinos, with the confirmation of Joe Biden as President, told us to “shut up and get in line,” we just got slapped in the face. Someone tell me did we like it? I guess so long as they, those who hold the power, have sheep to sheer the status quo will be maintained; politics as usual! I guess that is what Americans wanted; well, at least half the nation.

What does any of our conversations mean anymore. Words that lead to no real action are worthless! Why listen to any news media it is all spin? Why support Hollywood’s garbage peddled as entertainment? Why believe anything on the internet? It is ALL spin with an agenda. The only sure thing about TRUTH these days is there is not enough of it going around. The cultural norm now is for Democrats and Republicans to speak out of both sides of their mouths and We The People let them get away with it. Politicians will tell the people what they want to hear and then do what they want “all in the name and best interest of the people. WAKE UP AMERICA the devil is no longer at the door but in the house. Politicians have lined their pockets with tax dollars and pass laws that they themselves are exempt. The Constitution has been crapped upon, The Peoples Voice trampled as they are preparing to take even more of our rights away. Our best efforts, focus as THE PEOPLE now should be to keep the government out of our pockets, maintain our right to exercise faith and keep these deplorables away from our children. The title Politician has become a profane, dirty word, the lowest of all positions in life, deserving of little respect or attention. Long like the Republic, the right of the people to govern themselves and GOD bless America.

I haven’t owned a television since 2010 and haven’t watched a modern era movie in almost as long. I’ve never been on Twitter or Instagram and haven’t looked at my Facebook page since 2014. I’ve long since forgotten the password. I get my news from sites like AMAC, talk radio and Tucker, Hannity, and Laura. I hear plenty of the garbage from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, et. al. when they play clips from them on all my other sources. I couldn’t stomach watching an entire show of all their misinformation and outright lies. They completely omit ANY actual, factual information on the topics I want to hear about such as the origin and funding of the dossier, Biden family corruption, Obama administration abuse of power, …. I’m glad I don’t have that many years left to see my beautiful country descend into a Communist he11hole or any grandchildren to have to endure it. I have no sympathy for the willfully ignorant ‘useful idiots’ who voted for this Communist government. They will deserve ALL the suffering that will befall them. I weep for their descendants who had no say in the matter. USA RIP

Joey does not have the character, wit or the grit. I have reasoned that If Joey Biden can make it into the White House then Jeffery Epstein could have qualified to be the President. The position means nothing anymore as well as all our online discussions on AMAC or any other format. WE THE PEOPLE no longer have any say in our governance. The People were outwitted by the left.

This surreal and so-called impeachment is simply the sh*t show of Pelosi and her Demshevik accomplices who truly fear all the accomplishments that President Trump had made during his presidency. President Trump’s accomplishments in 4 short years stand in stark contrast to the abject and continuing failures of the Demsheviks and their Deep State denizens.

Pelosi is the Poster Witch for “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Her insanity on this subject is unparalleled. This is a toxic woman who does not serve the American people in any meaningful way. The fact that she is third in line to be president is an alarming fact and if she ever is elevated to that position, we will all have a front row seat watching the inmates running the asylum (and the country into the ground). Would someone with COVID-19 go cough in her face – pleeeeeezzzzeeee.

Pelosi has done nothing in the past four years besides being obsessed with impeaching Trump and she should have to give back every penny of her salary for that time. She sure hasn’t earned it. Plus all the bar tabs on her flights home that the taxpayers have had to pick up. She is a disgrace to America.

The inauguration had always been planned as a ‘virtual’ inauguration from the beginning, long before the assault on the Capitol. If they had had even 1/4 of the guard in place in D C on January 6, the assault never would have happened or it would have been squelched immediately. The powers that be had the intel from the chatter on the internet long before the attack occurred. They didn’t inform the Capitol Police so they could prepare and DELIBERATELY ordered everyone to ‘stand down’. The Capitol Police chief begged his bosses, C O N G R E S S!!! (Pelosi, McConnell, Sgts. of Arms), for permission to bolster his defenses and have access to re-inforcements. ALL requests were DENIED. D C mayor, Muriel Bowser, didn’t approve the guard to come in and help for several hours after it began. Many of the instigators were left wing agitators, ie John Sullivan from Utah. Unfortunately for them, many Trump supporters joined right in as useful idiots and they will, and SHOULD, pay a tremendous price for their folly. You can tell they were just a bunch of ignorant yahoos by all the selfies they proudly took of their illegal activities. The perpetrators who came with criminal intent covered their faces to thwart identification and brought the instruments of their destruction with them, ropes, gas masks, pipe bombs, etc. This was a PLANNED attack that occurred BEFORE Trump even started speaking. Trump didn’t say ANYTHING in his speech that he hasn’t been saying for months and that his supporters didn’t already believe whether he said it or not. We believe our own ‘lying eyes’ over their lame protestations of no fraud. We’ve seen the EVIDENCE of it for years and they were even more blatant about it in this election.
Unfortunately, what’s done is done. The Repubs will NEVER be allowed to win more than a few token national positions again from a dwindling number of red states as an unlimited number of uneducated immigrants are allowed into the country and the 30 million already here are given citizenship. Nevada fell in 2018. Georgia is now blue. Texas isn’t far behind. RIP USA

Trump was never impeached ! Why does all news say so? It was tried but didn’t pass The Senate as I recall. If it had passed he would have had to advocate his position. Am I not right. ?
The only reason Pelosi wants him impeached is so he can never be president again. SHES HORRIFIED OF HIM BEcAUSE HE CAN EXPOSE AND DEMOLISH THE MARXIST REGIME LIKE NO OTHER!!! They are the swamp!
LETS ALL HELP BY PRAYING. ——-GOD IS THE. ONLY. ANSWER!
A couple of “seers” said Biden would be arrested before he could be swarn in! Pray they’re right! He should be PLEASE PRAY.
It’s our only answer.

They’re going to let Biden bask in the glory of having been a ‘President’ of the United States for a very short time. He’ll be on a very short leash, his every move orchestrated by unseen persons, (Obama?), behind the scenes. The Dems are HOPING the Repubs will do their dirty work to remove him through impeachment to save them the trouble of finding an excuse to remove him themselves. They would be only too happy to have another reason to villify Repubs. They NEVER had ANY intention of having the decrepit, racist, old fool, Biden, actually BE POTUS in any capacity but ceremonial. He’s too befuddled to even comprehend what’s going on in the background. He can come up with a few tried and true platititudes from the far reaches of his deteriorating mind but he can barely even accurately read a teleprompter let alone come up with a coherent thought on his own. And this is the man in charge of the ‘football’, which controls use of the nuclear arsenal.
They’ve been declaring the world was in terrible danger under Donald Trump for the past four years. Any honest, thinking leader in the world knows they really are in grave danger now under the (Biden)/Harris administration.

We will see over the next 10 days that Biden will go along with anything his handlers tell him to do.
As far as impeaching Trump, Nancy is too stupid to realize that at least 85 million voters oppose it.
And she has this job for 2 more years ? How can you be speaker in a nursing home ? I guess this
govenment must be run by old , white people. Oh well.

You are quite wrong, he could have told Nancy “The Hag” to stop, but I think he said, “go for it”. Just because he is not yet in office he has power,

Why can’t they just accept the fact that they won? Why do they have to be sore about it. I don’t understand their need to get one more jab in or to throw more fuel on the fire. And they wonder why there is such a divide.

Unfortunately term limits will not be on the table . God willing things will turn in 23 . The haters have to go and we all know their names, and how long they’ve been in government. The third person in power ripping up the State of the Union speech in front of millions of Americans, and these people are making decisions for our country too. Biden will not stop the impeachment. He hates the President as much as the no names mentioned. Karma’s a b*~^h. . . Hopefully this road is not taken .
