Are we going to make it to 2021?

Yesterday was the very first day of business of the 116th Congress of the United States of America.

This Congress is in office until January 3rd, 2021.

I’m not so sure America will make it until then.

On the very first day of official business Congressman Brad Sherman of California introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Here is his official statement, it’s a doozy.

I am pleased that Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has joined me in filing Articles of Impeachment against Donald J. Trump. We now begin the effort to force the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Obstruction of Justice and Russian interference in our election.

Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia. It now seems likely that the President had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute Obstruction of Justice.

Every day Democrats, Republicans, and the entire world are shocked by the latest example of America’s amateur President. Ignorance accompanied by a refusal to learn. Lack of impulse control, accompanied by a refusal to have his staff control his impulses. We’re no longer surprised by any action, no matter how far below the dignity of the office—and no matter how dangerous to the country.

But the Constitution does not provide for the removal of a President for impulsive, ignorant incompetence. It does provide for the removal of a President for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

As the investigations move forward, additional evidence supporting additional Articles of Impeachment may emerge. However, as to Obstruction of Justice, as defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1512 (b)(3), the evidence we have is sufficient to move forward now. And the national interest requires that we do so.

Introducing Articles of Impeachment will have two possible outcomes. First, I have slight hope it will inspire an ‘intervention’ in the White House. If Impeachment is real, if they actually see Articles, perhaps we will see incompetency replaced by care. Perhaps uncontrollable impulses will be controlled. And perhaps the danger our nation faces will be ameliorated.

Second, and more likely, filing Articles of Impeachment is the first step on a very long road. But if the impulsive incompetency continues, then eventually—many, many months from now—Republicans will join the impeachment effort.

I author Articles of Impeachment not to change our national policy. I served with Mike Pence in Congress for twelve years and I disagree with him on just about everything. I never dreamed I would author a measure that would put him in the White House. I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.”​

That is the most nakedly partisan diatribe I’ve ever read.  He admits to have no evidence but hates Trump and Pence and is just letting it all hang out.

Not to be outdone in monumental stupidity, Congressman Steve Cohen released two drafts of Constitutional Amendments aimed at eliminating the electoral college and the other to explicitly target Trump saying “Presidents should not pardon themselves, their families, their administration or campaign staff” which is something he hasn’t done but paranoid and spiteful Democrats think he might do.

Cohen is a Representative of Tennessee, which has only nine Congressional seats and is the kind of low population density state that the Founding Fathers thought of when they created the electoral college to empower smaller and more rural states against the bullying of larger, more populous and affluent ones.  This shows, clear as day, that Cohen doesn’t think of himself as a Representative of Tennessee but a Democrat at Large, whatever is best for his party as a whole is what he does rather than be concerned about the needs of his constituents and state as a whole.

*On a side note.  After reading these news stories, I told my wife that if Mo Brooks ever runs for Senate (like half of AL wants him to) or decides not to run for reelection, I’m going to run for Congress just to prove that not all Jews are radical Left wing democratic socialists.

Lastly, we have these little gem from inside of the halls of Congress.

I know some people have mocked this picture because the arrow is pointing too Egypt, not Israel, but that misses the entire point.

This is a very transparent statement about the genocide of the Jewish people in Israel.  Maps in Palestinian, Arab, and Iranian schools often show the whole area of Israel and the West Bank as Palestine, which goes along with the motto “from the river to the sea.”  Hamas, the official government of Palestine, claims all of Israel is Palestinian territory and that they will “drive the Jews into the sea.”

The United States Congresswoman who represents Detroit has taken the Hamas position on Israel and Democrats and Lefties think it’s a cute zinger.

With radical partisan unseriousness and support for a genocidal terrorist position on the very first day, what can we expect from this Congress except utter dog shit.

Frankly, I’m not sure if we’re going to make it to 2021 at this rate.  I need to increase my monthly ammo budget.

  1. With the exception of the note on the map, all of this is nothing more than I expected from the new Congress. The impeachment process, especially, is something the Dems have been salivating over in anticipation.

  2. The intellectual dishonesty of people saying that the impeachment process is not political but is about “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” boggles my mind. Because the constitution does not define “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” it is up to the House to define in the articles of impeachment. By definition that means the process is inherently political.

  3. Imagine if the Democrats came into power in the House with a measured tone, something like “Well, we’ve sure had our disagreements with President Trump, but we want to make sure we spend at least the next 2 years working with him for the sake of the country. We look forward to an amicable relationship!”. Imagine how hard that would make Trump’s job. Imagine the tough sell for his reelection.

    Instead, we are getting exactly what we thought, and the Democrats aren’t disappointing. Within the first 48 hours, we’ve had profane threats of impeachment, vitriol, and even an attempt at destroying the electoral college, which would all but guarantee the complete dissolution of the country. This is not bipartisanship, this is insanity, and it’s how Trump is going to get reelected in 2020.

    Will the nation hold on after that? I don’t know. Let’s see what mighty progressive totalitarians like Cuomo and Newsom do. Cuomo was already bleating about how NY (really, only NYC) is independent from the Federal Government. Let’s see if they up the rhetoric.

  4. Let us not forget: The only reason that the Demons have taken a (narrow) control of the House is because the leftist Billionaires, like Soros, Bloomberg, Steyer, et al,, pumped hundreds of millions of dollars through front organizations to tip the scales in narrow margin elections.

    The rules say that you can’t buy elections. We need to arrest these bastards and put them on trial for election tampering.

    If we had some Republican billionaires doing the same thing, you know that the Demons would sic the attack dogs on them.
