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.

Texas Rancher Offers Land for Border Wall, Tells Pelosi: ‘Ma’am, I Don’t Know Where You Get Your Facts’

Ruperto Escobar, a 75 year-old, seventh-generation Texas farmer, is offering to donate property to the federal government where it can build a border wall, because he has suffered a lifetime of harm due to illegal immigration.

“The problem there right now is primarily drug trafficking. The Illegal immigrants traveling through there are not so prominent, anymore, like they used to be,” Escobar told Fox News in an interview on Wednesday.

In his 75 years living on the border, he has “seen everything,” Escobar said. Currently, Escobar explained, illegal aliens in vehicles packed with drugs are routinely driving at “high velocity” across his property – often with police in hot pursuit:

“But, I have lived there 75 years, Steve, and let me tell you: I have seen everything happen there. Right now, I must access the river, because I have a pumping site. And I have good, workable road to the river and you ought to see the amount of traffic that happens primary going back towards the river.

“People that get caught, vehicles full of drugs, and they speed back toward the river at a very high velocity past my house – a whole slew of police after them. Then, these individuals park their loaded Suburbans, things like that, right by the bank of the Rio Grande, jump in the water, off they go. They leave everything there. That happens quite often.”

Asked to respond to House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) claim that a border wall is “immoral,” Escobar said that it’s actually the havoc wreaked by illegal aliens on his property that’s immoral:

“I say ma’am, I don’t know where you get your facts but from what we have endured, my lifetime, which is about 75 years now of seeing the number of illegals coming across here trampling over our fences the drug dealers tearing down our gates. That is immoral. And, we’re tired of it. We need that wall.”

Daniel Flynn, the author of Cult City, explains the nature of the Democratic Party political machine that included communist cult leader and sex pervert Jim Jones and resulted in the “revolutionary suicide” of 900 people in Guyana in 1978. Turns out that Rep. Nancy Pelosi praised one of Jones’ main supporters, Dr. Garlton Goodlett, years after Goodlett was exposed as a communist with high-level Soviet/Russian connections. On the 40th anniversary of the mass murder, where is the investigation of this Russia-gate scandal?

Isn’t it funny how top Democrats love to talk about “tolerance” and “compassion” when they are, in fact, the least tolerant and least compassionate people out there? Take this tweet from Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for instance:

It’s always wonderful to see liberals talk about the people as if they were some kind of collective with shared interests. That’s nonsense, of course. Some people benefit from this policy, others from that one. The belief that “the people” are somehow one — and united — has caused major suffering worldwide. Just think about North Korea. The Soviet Union. Mao’s China. “Modern” Venezuela. And Cuba. In every single one of those countries, leaders talk about “the people” constantly, while expanding their own personal power. One of their favorite tools? Sending opponents off to the gulag/prison/concentration camps.

It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Pelosi tells California Republicans who dare support President Trump’s tax bill to leave the state. Stalin, Mao, Castro, Kim, and Chavez would have agreed. Send them off to the gulag!
