Politically Speaking – December 10, 2019
“Madam Clap” (a nickname for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in Washington) held a press conference at 8 a.m. and her regular weekly Speaker of the House address right after at 9:00 a.m. last Thursday morning.
Both were dripping with, in my opinion, sheer and total hate! So much for her comment of, “I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love.” In my humble opinion, it’s a lesson she forgot!
Her 8:00 a.m. press conference started with, “Let us begin where our founding fathers began in 1776,” and continued after her fluff with the following speech.
“In the course of today’s events, it becomes necessary for us to address, among other grievances, the President’s failure to faithfully execute the law. When crafting the Constitution, the Founders feared the return of a monarchy in America. And, having just fought a war of independence, they specifically feared the prospect of a king-president corrupted by foreign influence.
“During the Constitutional Convention, James Madison, the architect of the Constitution, warned that a president might betray his trust to foreign powers which might prove fatal to the republic. Another founder, Gouverneur Morris, feared that a president may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust. He emphasized that this magistrate is not the king. The people are the king.
“They, therefore, created a constitutional remedy to protect against a dangerous or corrupt leader: impeachment. Unless the Constitution contained an impeachment provision, one founder warned, a president might ‘spare no efforts or means whatsoever’ to get himself re-elected. Similarly, George Mason insisted that a president who procured his appointment in his first instance through improper and corrupt acts might repeat his guilt and return to power.
“During the debate over impeachment at the constitutional convention, George Mason also asked, shall any man be above justice? Shall that man be above it who can commit the most extensive injustice?
“Over the past few weeks, through the Intelligence Committee working with the Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees, the American people have heard the testimony of truly patriotic career public servants, distinguished diplomats and decorated war heroes — some of the President’s own appointees.
“The facts are uncontested. The President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit at the expense of our national security, by withholding military aid and a crucial Oval Office meeting in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival.”
She continued with fluff, fluff, and more fluff, including the Democrats’ wishful thinking — saying, “His (referring to our President) wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution.”
And she concluded by saying, “Our Democracy is what is at stake. The President leaves us no choice but to act, because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit. The President has engaged in abuse of power undermining our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections. His actions are in defiance of the vision of our founders and the oath of office that he takes ‘to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
“Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and our hearts full of love for America, today, I am asking our Chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment. I commend our Committee Chairs and our Members for their somber approach to actions which I wish the President had not made necessary.”
personally found this speech an insult to our founding fathers, using them to frame a President to further her agenda as well as Adam Schiff’s, Jerry Nadler’s and the rest involved, because they fear Donald Trump and the loss facing them in 2020.
Next up was the 9:00 a.m. weekly Speaker of the House address, which involved the same bull. But where it got interesting was when she finished and did her usual and started walking away, a reporter, James Rosen from a conservative television network, shouted a question, “Do you hate the President, Madam Speaker?”
She turned on her heels, started wagging her finger at him, and said, “Don’t mess with me,” showing her true attitude and personality. She then continued to say to the reporter and the rest in attendance at her s___show, “As a Catholic I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone. I pray for the President all the time.”
also threw a number of insults Trump’s way, calling him “a coward” on gun violence, “cruel” on immigration, and “in denial” about climate change. But she emphasized those were issues for the 2020 elections. She did not hate the President. Her final comment was, “This is about the Constitution.”
As for her praying, good for her. My recommendation is she start praying for all the unborn babies she and her clueless groupies have murdered through abortion. And as a Catholic, she might remember just one of the Ten Commandments, “Thou shalt not kill.”
, with that said, let me remind everyone, looking back, the President and the Speaker of the House have had more than one contentious meeting. So her hate for the President isn’t new.
One such meeting was over Syria when Pelosi demanded to question Trump in the Cabinet Room over future plans with Syria and she demanded to know if removing troops had to do with a favor to Putin of Russia.
Another confrontation took place during a televised Oval Office meeting at the end of 2018 when she fired back at Trump that despite the Democrats’ victories on the 2018 midterm elections, she lacked political clout in the standoff over spending and a looming government shutdown.
the long and short of this three-ring sideshow called the impeachment hearings, staged from nothing more than hearsay, is that there is no real evidence of any wrongdoing, according to the four experts in Constitutional Law (handpicked by guess who, Adam Schiff.)
In my opinion, all this is an attempt to beat Trump in 2020 because they’re scared.
One thing is driving this despicable display of injustice so fast: the calendar. If you watched these hearings it doesn’t matter, Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, you have to see and hear the corruption.
In the end, even terrorists have been shown more justice and respect than our President. So in the end, I believe this whole spectacle is devastating for our entire country.
My prediction is the House will impeach our President, and the Senate will not pass it. In other words, nothing. In 2020 the Democrats will pay the consequences for their actions.
Until next week.
