What’s Really Behind the Impeachment Con?

The Democrats have become a cult of anti-personality.

The ‘anti’ phenomenon is not unique. Past Democrat generations had built their identity around hating Goldwater, Nixon, and Reagan. But the internet monetized the cult of anti-personality in a big way.

And Democrats are paying the price.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Dem House leadership have tried everything possible to stop the talk of impeachment. But nothing that she and her deputies can do has made a dent in the madness.

In a sign of pure desperation, Pelosi has begun insisting that impeachment is a Trump conspiracy.

“Trump is goading us to impeach him,” she actually claimed.

The Dem House leader is hoping to dissuade her faction from its self-destructive orgy of Trump hatred by tapping into that hatred to convince them that impeaching Trump is exactly what he wants.

And it won’t work.

Impeaching Trump is the obsession of a narrow slice of the Dem base. But it’s the one that provides much of the money and the manpower. The Democrats wouldn’t have won in 2018 without the Trump-haters, but they won’t be able to win in 2020 with them. Their fanaticism proved crucial in midterm elections where Democrats traditionally suffered from low voter turnout. But in a presidential election, voter turnout will be high. And the Democrats will need to win over independent voters.

A majority of Americans opposes impeachment. But impeachment fever turned otherwise obscure Dem politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters, Red. Ted Lieu and Rep. Adam Schiff into resistance celebrities.

 

They won’t stop trying to destroy Trump even if it destroys them

While Pelosi worries about losing moderate districts, the loudest impeachment activists can’t lose.

Most of the House impeachment noise has been coming from Congressional Black Caucus, California and New York House members who are safely ensconced in districts that Republicans can’t win. The more noise they make, the more they can fundraise, build their brand and get invited on MSNBC.

They don’t risk losing their seats through a challenge from the right, but from the left.

Joe Crowley’s defeat at the hands of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was a warning. Alienating Democrats or infuriating Republicans poses no risk to Democrats in safe districts. They’re worried about another prog coming out of the woodwork and impeachment is their shield against a challenger.

While Pelosi wants to hold on to her speakership by getting and keeping House Dems in swing states, the impeachment caucus is only out for the interests of its members. Before internet fundraising, political grandstanding wasn’t nearly as profitable. But Trump and the internet have changed all that.

Rep. Adam Schiff’s fundraising take went from below a million in 2016 to $6.25 million in 2018. Rep. Eric Swalwell’s finances ballooned from $1.9 million in 2016 to over $3 million in 2018. Swalwell became so confident that he even decided to run for president. Rep. Sheila Lee Jackson had her best fundraising totals since the Bush era. Rep. Maxine Waters went from raising $729,000 in 2012 to $1.59 million.

Judgment Day coming for Democrats

American Thinker

By Lloyd Marcus

Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono verbally brutalized A.G. William Barr during the Judiciary Committee hearing.  Hirono’s abuse of Barr and disrespect for our president were condescending and breathtakingly evil.  Her demand that Barr resign was rooted in spin and lies.  She venomously denounced president Trump as a “grifter and liar.”

Can you imagine the American Left’s response to a Republican calling Obama a grifter and liar?  That Republican would be declared a racist then given a high-tech beating and stoning to death in the public square.  All standards of decency have been thrown out the window in the leftists’ mission to stop Trump from restoring America’s greatness and to remove him from office.  Vitriolic disrespect for Trump and his family, even death threats, are acceptable.

Wicked Democrat Nancy Pelosi outrageously claimed that Barr lied, committing perjury during the hearing.  Pelosi knows that fake news media will promote her absurd charge against Barr as the truth.

On my car radio, I heard ABC news report that the Mueller report concluded that Trump did try to collude and obstruct justice.  I thought, “That is not what the Mueller report concluded.”  My relatives, who pay little attention to politics, hear fake news media lies and believe them.  Most of my black relatives believe that Trump is racist and hates women, blacks, and Mexicans.  These are absurd strategic lies promoted by evil Democrats and their fake news media minions.

Due to the media hiding the truth while promoting Democratic lies, my black relatives have no idea that Trump is doing an amazing job for America, blacks, and women.  Black unemployment has reached historic lows.  Women and Hispanics are also thriving in Trump’s economy.

Freshman Dems to meet with Obama next week

The Hill

Freshman Democrats in the lower chamber are expected to meet with former President Obama next week at a reception organized by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Democratic aide confirmed Thursday.

The event — which is slated to take place at former UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Esther Coopersmith’s home in Kalorama — is limited to just members, several of whom served in the 44th president’s administration, according to an invitation seen by The Hill.

The invitation states that the reception is being held to “celebrate the freshman class of the 116th Congress.”

Politico first reported the news.

Obama played a visible role in helping Democrats take back control of the lower chamber, having provided key endorsements, hit the campaign trail and raised funds in the party’s efforts to flip seats.

The 116th Congress currently has 59 Democratic freshman members.

Dems knot gonna do it

Powerline

by Scott Johnson

The House Democratic Caucus is in a knot over Ilhan Omar and the possible resolution condemning anti-Semitism that she elicited. The original draft resolution was a joke to begin with; it is already ancient history. The vapid substitute resolution condemning hate in all the manifest forms recognized by identity politics is struggling to be born. The caucus is resolved to be unresolved for the time being.

Something reeks in the Democratic Party. Politico takes us inside the caucus meeting today in this story. It was tension city. Steve might invite us to pass the popcorn and contemplate the internal strife among our opponents. In this case, however, there is nothing amusing about it.

Leading Democrats Now Hinting They Won’t Accept The Mueller Report If It Finds No Collusion.

Yet another Banana Republic moment for the Democrat Party. As the Mueller investigation winds down and various leaks from that investigation suggesting it will fall far short of doing any kind of significant damage to President Trump, leading Democrats are now declaring they will likely ignore the Mueller conclusions and continue spending yet more taxpayer dollars to harass and attack the president. Shame on anyone who supports this version of the modern Democrat party.

Democrats and Their Media Pretend Muslim Terrorism Is Manufactured

American Thinker

By Rich Logis

Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if they’re aware that the FBI recently thwarted a Muslim terrorist who allegedly wanted to blow up and shoot up the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and a synagogue.

Chances are, they haven’t heard about Hasher Jallal Taheb, a 21-year-old native-born American from the Atlanta, Ga. metropolitan area who was arrested after a months-long undercover investigation.  If those you inquire with heard about Taheb, ask them if they know he was a jihadist who changed his name and believed that jihad is an obligation and pathway to martyrdom.

You want to talk about a national emergency?  How about the frequency with which so many Democrats, as well as the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex), cover up radical Islamic terrorism?

Democrat-Defined Terrorism

To paraphrase Orwell’s Animal Farm, all terrorists are created equal, but some are created more equal than others.  Over the last few years, with the unfortunate rise in white supremacy-related violence and murders, Democrats and the DMIC have moved the goal posts on who’s a terrorist and who isn’t.  Actually, I don’t mind their expansion of the term, as I can now claim as terrorists some members of Black Lives Matter, protesters who block active-duty ambulances, and pro-fascists who identify themselves as “Antifa.”
