Impeachment talk: Just sound and fury signifying nothing

Published

Impeachment is a good talking point bad strategy for Democrats

If you ever went to a Tea Party rally between 2010 and 2016, chances are you heard a whole lot about Obamacare. It was a disaster. It needed to be repealed. The Republicans were going to regain control of the House, Senate, and White House, and the first thing they were going to do was to repeal Obamacare forever. These were the talking points at the rallies.

The same could be said about every campaign rally during the same time period. To various degrees, the majority of Republican candidates ran on a promise to repeal Obamacare if they got the power to do so. They even demonstrated this many times in practice, especially the infamous “clean repeal” of 2015 that was passed in both chambers before being sent for its predictable demise by veto at the left hand of President Obama.

When the champagne corks had been picked up following the victorious 2016 election, the time had finally come to do something extremely important. No, it wasn’t what they had promised. Only a small handful really had any intentions of fully repealing Obamacare. The task at hand was to change their own narrative, the narrative they rode to victories in three out of four elections. They no longer needed to talk about repealing Obamacare. Now was the time to talk up “repeal and replace” in hopes they could fix Obamacare and rename it.

The GOP used the Obamacare repeal to help them win control, then turned everything around when they finally got control. The end results was essentially an untouched Obamacare to this day.

Fast forward to the Democrats’ version of Obamacare: impeachment. Now that the Mueller report has been released, Democrats who hoped the report would result in a hands-free end to the Presidency were disappointed. But it’s not all bad news. Now they have a boogeyman they can talk about at campaign rallies, on social media, at town halls, and in interviews. Impeachment is the talk of the town in DC.

But this is different from Obamacare. There’s no real chance at a united front because there are four groups of Democrats separated by how they must handle impeachment for their own self-interest.

  • Radical progressives, mostly in the Senate and especially if running for President, must beat the drum as loud as possible for impeachment knowing it’s a message that can rile up their base.
  • Establishment Democrats must be the voice of reason knowing there’s no practical value of pushing impeachment, especially with next to zero chance of the Senate actually impeaching him if the House calls for it.
  • Red state Democrats in between the first two groups must shy away from impeachment or risk getting voted out.
  • Blue state Democrats in between the first two groups must push for impeachment if there’s a risk they could get primaried for not being tough enough on President Trump.

In the end, there will be no impeachment. The calls for impeachment will eventually die down, replaced by “vote him out” as we approach 2020. It’s a bluff that even the most ignorant leftist lawmakers know can’t actually have an impact other than make noise for political expediency.

Impeachment is a scam.

Some Democrats can use impeachment to raise money or garner support. Presidential candidates must use impeachment to keep their fans angry. But none of them have any illusions impeachment can happen. They’re all bluffing.

Cory Booker in the aggregate: Propagating the ’mass shooting every day’ deception

Cory Booker In the aggregate Propagating the mass shooting every day deception

Witness the formation of a false talking point by continual repetition.

Presidential candidate Cory Booker et al. has repeated the same line of ‘a mass shooting every day, in the aggregate’ for the past few weeks in various town halls and interviews. Like most Leftist talking points, this absurd assertion has been carefully constructed to foment a pithy little saying unmoored from reality. The fact is, the Liberty grabber Left exploites every mass shooting to maximum effect, to the point that they have begun to regularly use ‘anniversaries’ of these tragedies to push for more controls over our freedom.  Even in this case, it has it’s own escape clause of ‘in the aggregate’ if anyone is ever called on this deception..

Just for reference, this is the Oxford English dictionary entry for the phrase ‘in (the) aggregate’

In total; as a whole.

Again, even here reality isn’t too kind to the Left. The fact is, there hasn’t been a ‘mass shootings in the aggregate every day.’ Or ‘mass shootings In total every day.’ As in this video at the 5:10 mark.

This is as yet another case where the Left doesn’t care about the truth of the matter, only the setting of a certain perception in the public consciousness. It doesn’t matter that each and every mass shooting is exploited from beginning to end. Or that even the hint of one taking place will see news bulletins instantly going out over the wire.

That plain fact doesn’t stop Leftists from trying to promulgate the false perception of gun violence being an overwhelming ‘epidemic’ that demands the immediate implementation of drastic measures.

Repeating a lie doesn’t make it true.

Despite the admonitions from infamous Leftists Adolph Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, repeating a lie doesn’t make it the truth, but it is part and parcel for Leftists to traffic in lies. The fact is, mass shootings are rare, no matter what kind of creativity in defining these distinctive events to include just about anything imaginable.

The plain fact is that Leftists need ‘serious crisis’ in order to ratchet down our Liberty. When reality fails to meet their needs, they just make up their own ‘in the aggregate’. Never mind that there aren’t mass shootings every day, the national socialist Left would like that to be the perception so they can push their gun confiscation agenda. They push the ‘gun violence is a unique problem in the states’ even though other nations are far more violent, but as they drift further and further into insanity their grip on reality has become that much more tenuous.

Bill de Blasio campaign launch sputters. Even his YouTube channel has under 100 subscribers.

Published

on

It’s been about 24 hours since New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio launched his presidential campaign, and it’s off to a strange start. First, the excitement level has been hovering somewhere south of none. Then, he was clowned in his own city by Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Not to be outdone, Jimmy Kimmel joined in on the bashing.

The morning after his launch is treating the Democrat any kinder. He’s waking up to headlines like “De Blasio unites America — against his presidential bid” and “Doesn’t anyone like Bill de Blasio?

But arguably the most embarrassing indictment of how poorly his campaign is being received is on his own YouTube channel. As of the time of this article, a full day after he announced, he’s been able to accumulate 87 subscribers.

President Trump has been giving him plenty of attention, but perhaps it’s time to stop. Bill de Blasio is not going to be a contender for the Democratic nomination. Even 76% of people in his own city don’t want him to be President.

Missed signals can lead to tragedy!

Missed signals can lead to tragedy!

Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a U.S. Army psychiatrist who gave PowerPoint presentations opposing American war efforts in Middle East. On November 5, 2009 he went on a shooting rampage of his fellow soldiers killing 13 adults and one pre-born baby at Fort Hood, Texas.

Warning signs had been ignored.

Edward Snowden was a contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency at the tunnel in Hawaii. As an I.T. specialist, he tricked high-level superiors into revealing their passwords. He then stole national secrets and fled the country with them. If an NCIC warrant had been timely obtained, or if U.S. Customs and Border Protection had been alerted immediately, he would have been intercepted on a constitutional warrantless outbound border search at Honolulu International Airport.

Warning signs had been ignored.

Bradley Manning was a U.S. Army soldier convicted of violating the Espionage Act by revealing classified information to Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. Manning’s “lawyers discussed a psychological assessment report that describes him as having ‘regressed stages of development’ and ‘narcissistic personality traits.'”

Warning signs had been ignored.

Major Tulsi Gabbard is a Commissioned Officer in Hawaii National Guard. She is simultaneously U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. She is now running for the Democrat nomination for President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief.

Concerns have previously been articulated concerning a possible violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Tulsi's YouTube screenshot

She has released two videos this week accusing President Trump and National Security Advisor John Bolton of provoking a war against Iran. She has also condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

“Trump ~ eager for war with Iran”

“The US must NOT go to war with Iran”

Over a month ago she released two videos regarding Julian Assange.

“Wikileaks/Assange. Be quiet or else.”

“Assange Arrest: Toe the Line or Go to Jail.”

Major Gabbard apparently does not understand why the United States government classifies sensitive information and controls who may or may not release it. If she is called to active duty in Hawaii National Guard and sent to fight Iran, can you depend upon her loyalty?

General Logan's contact info

Hawaii Adjutant General Arthur “Joe” Logan wears multiple hats. He was appointed by Hawaii Governor David Ige to serve as Hawaii Homeland Security Advisor with responsibility for Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. He is also in charge of Hawaii National Guard.

Major Tulsi Gabbard is under his Command. The onus is upon Maj Gen Logan to hold her accountable under UCMJ. It is also incumbent upon Governor Ige to ensure that this issue is addressed by her chain-of-command.

Warning signs were ignored with Major Hasan.

Warning signs were ignored with Edward Snowden.

Warning signs were ignored with Bradley Manning.

Warning signs with Major Gabbard must NOT be ignored.
