WASHINGTON, May 19, 2017 — The angry calls for President Donald Trump’s impeachment is what in poker circles is called a “tell”: something in the player’s demeanor or behavior that indicates the strength (or weakness) of their hand.
Trump has kept his promise to nominate and confirm a constitutional originalist to the nation’s high court, dragged reluctant Republicans into fulfilling their campaign promise to repeal Obamacare, rescinded President Obama’s business-stifling and immigration executive orders, reduced illegal crossings at our southern border by 40 percent, and is poised to spur the U.S. economy by overhauling the nation’s income and corporate tax system.
The death of Obama’s “hope and change” is proving to be good for America.
During their Watergate heyday, Democrats waited for the Senate and House select committees (then in their control) to issue investigative reports before they even began using the word “impeachment.”
That is not the case today.
“I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America for the obstruction of justice,” said Rep. Al Green (D-Texas). “I do not do this for political purposes, I do this because I believe in the great ideals that this country stands for: liberty and justice for all.”
Someone forgot to tell Rep. Green that justice is not the product of desired outcomes but the product of evidentiary processes, with an emphasis on EVIDENCE.
To date, evidence of Russian-Trump collusion, coupled with the incredible claim that Russian intelligence services swayed the last presidential election, is the product of unnamed, Hillary Clinton-friendly deep-state sources speaking to Hillary Clinton-friendly members of the mainstream media.
The Government Accountability Institute’s Peter Schweizer (author of “Clinton Cash”) finds it strange congressional Democrats are so interested in possible Russian connections to Trump and his campaign staff while showing little interest in Bill and Hillary Clinton’s receiving “large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
“Bill Clinton was paid a cool $500,000 for a speech in Moscow in 2010. Who footed the bill? An investment firm in Moscow called Renaissance Capital, which boasted deep ties to Russian intelligence,” Schweizer wrote for Fox News.
And the organized anti-Trump “resistance,” of which the Russian-connected Hillary has claimed quasi-leadership, “are planning a series of nationwide protests on July 2 known as ‘Impeachment Marches’ to increase pressure,” said the New York Times.
In his commencement speech to U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduates, President Trump said, “You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.”
And he’s right.
Since it is highly unlikely Trump will ever face Senate impeachment proceedings (unlike Bill Clinton), it’s much more likely Democrats and their friends in the deep state and press assume their ginned-up anti-Trump hysteria will translate into votes, costing Republicans control of the Senate and, possibly, the House.
But the hyper-derangement of the so-called “resistance” (really the tired, old status quo) will only harden Trump’s core support and help uplift the GOP’s political prospects ahead of the 2018 midterm elections… as the left did in 2010, 2014 and again in 2016.
In other words, the real resistance – the Trump resistance – is just getting started, while the faux resistance continues to play the same losing hand.
