Impeaching Trump: This endless quest is redundant, repetitive and insane
CHARLOTTE, NC – Whatever anyone has said or will say about impeaching President Donald Trump, is now, and ever shall be, officially redundant. What we are dealing with currently is a political Super Bowl of media frenzy where the #Resistance legions are wearing their “Woodward and Bernstein” investigative caps. In their neverending journey toward impeaching Trump, they’re continuing to look under every rock.
Hard left Democrats still hope to find that definitive, big, breaking story that will stun the world. Hopefully, before they end up repeating the same things over and over and over and over again. (You get the point.)
Amid all the current speculation and analysis, the “Joe the plumbers” of the country still have a lot to consider.
Media piranhas circle their usual prey
For starters, the always hungry media piranhas will perpetuate the story for as long as they are able. Why not? It’s ideal for their hate Trump agenda, which handily translates to profits for them and the cable network moguls. The goal, of course, is to steer the controversy into the full-blown 2020 presidential campaign season. There, endless speculation, polls and daily gaffes on all sides will add even more revenue to the coffers of these wealthy socialists.
At first, the story was rather simple. It involved just two things to which most people could relate. Even if they didn’t fully understand them.

The Impeaching Trump Debate in context
The impeaching Trump debate is an interesting one. That’s because, other than Andrew Johnson, the process was dormant until the end of the 20th century when Richard Nixon was on the verge of ouster. Before he opted to resign instead.
Then came Bill Clinton, whose removal from office never happened. And now we’re all forced to witness the House’s left-wing Democrats lead the charge toward impeaching Trump. That leaves the real question as to whether the big “I” is going to become part of every election in the future regardless of which party occupies the Oval Office. That is not good for the country in any way, shape or form. So unless there is truly a legitimate reason to proceed, we would all be better off if the process fails.
Robert De Niro’s more picturesque speech
In his latest foul-mouthed television
interview rant, veteran actor Robert De Niro stated unequivocally, punctuated by a fusillade of F-bomb eloquence, that “This guy — should not be president, period.”
De Niro and his Hollywood cronies may be right. But the reality is that Donald Trump was elected! That’s the process we use in this country. That’s the way the system works.
Just because liberals did not like the outcome in November 2016, doesn’t unilaterally allow them to overturn the election results without genuine justification. Therein lies the real crux of this controversy.
But pure dislike and hatred do not qualify as justification.
An exercise in futility
Impeaching Donald Trump at this time is an exercise in futility. By the time the presidential campaigns get into full swing, the election will only be a few months away. What can the Democrats run on other than their four year assault on the president. And that includes their equally absurd attack on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court?
The answer is resoundingly NOTHING. ZIP. ZERO. NADA. That will not play well in mainstream America, regardless of personal opinions regarding President Trump and his methods.
In the long run, so long as the opposition continues to select candidates who look like rejects from the original Star Wars barroom scene, they’re toast. If they are unable to demonstrate any progress for the American people other than the oingoing vendetta against Trump, the backlash is going to be massive.
Nancy Pelosi is keenly aware of the danger. She was privately dragged kicking and screaming into the confrontation which she realizes can have no beneficial effect for her party. Dislikeable as Pelosi may be to her opponents, she has strong political instincts. They tell her that impeachment at this time is a negative exercise.
Without any record of legislation during Trump’s tenure, Democrats will be hard-pressed to proclaiming impeaching Trump as a signal accomplishment.
As for now, fevered speculation will continue. So, too, will the analysis and talking head arguments that accomplish little and change no hard-line opinions.
Sadly, Pandora’s Box has been opened. Impeaching Trump, and even his eventual successors, could very well become commonplace in the future of American politics.
And sadly so. Because it was and is completely unnecessary.
