Impeachment 2.0: Even Sillier this Time Around

Published

on

Ready for impeachment 2.0? First, a constitutional refresher:

“The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” ~Article 2, Section 4, U.S. Constitution

The former president is now a private citizen. We have a new president.

Yet this week we’ll have a new Senate impeachment trial. For those who care, the party in power will try to prove that a former president committed high crimes and misdemeanors and must be removed from office—even though he’s not in office and can’t be removed from an office he’s not in.

This exercise in ridiculous redundancy is like if you threw away an old shirt and replaced it with a new shirt and then dug the old shirt out of the trash and held a trial to prove that you should throw it away again.

Senate impeachment 2.0 is so spectacularly unconstitutional that the head of one branch of government, Chief Justice John Roberts, refuses to assume his constitutionally mandated role as presiding judge.

Mob rules

Does this deter the defenders of our democracy? No chief justice, no matter. The venerable eight-term Democrat Senator Pat Leahy from Vermont will serve quite nicely. So instead of an impartial chief justice, we’ll have a senator who’s already called for conviction. Leahy will be as impartial as a torch-toting member of a torch-toting mob can be.

It’s like a posse who captures an alleged criminal and tries him by campfire because the town judge refuses to participate. “Who’s gonna be the judge of this here trial?” Head scratching ensues before Red nominates Slim and perches him atop his horse as judge and member of the jury.

Double dumb. Just like impeachment trial 2.0. Well, maybe dumb’s not the right word. Senate Democrats aren’t stupid, but they will certainly look foolish trying to remove a removed president. Our Constitution’s impeachment provision isn’t meant to be a partisan cudgel against former presidents or to prevent them from ever running again.

In fairness, many of those pushing this impeachment are true believers in the Trump-as-threat-to-our-democracy mantra, but others likely see this as an opportunity to kill Trumpism once and for all. For those opportunists, the word is Machiavellian.

Let’s see this for what it is—an historic first—a Senate kangaroo court trial. We’re about to witness a pack of partisan politicians try to convince us that a former foolish president is A) guilty of egregiously galactic levels of fomenting insurrection and treason, and B) a continued “threat to our democracy.”

In short, they will attempt to remove a former president from an office he no longer holds. When that fails, they’ll try to prevent him from ever threatening our democracy again by barring him from public office.

This is justified, they say. After all, he’s the eternal boogeyman, you see. At least, that’s how the party in power wants you to think of him.

The New Democratic Sex Cult

They have stopped worshipping the Creator and instead worship the created.

Published

The Democrats have become a sex cult. Sex is their religion. They have exchanged worshipping God the Creator and instead worship sex, the created. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener explains in this short video and gives you the true answer on how to defeat the sex cult. Read Romans 1:18-27 below the video, then watch the video.

From Romans 1:18-27

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Send Boatloads, Not Plane Loads, of Migrants to Eastern Seaboard Sanctuary Cities

Ultra-wealthy liberal communities don’t want to handle an ultra-thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants

Published

on

The Über-Liberals of Martha’s Vineyard got a tiny, tiny taste of what Texas and Arizona endure every hour, of every day, with no end in sight. What a wonderful glimpse for all the world to see: how an ultra-wealthy, sparsely populated island, in a virtual sanctuary state, handled a thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants, yearning to be free! They sent them away in less than a day.

All those yard signs, all that virtue-signaling, and it all added up to what? Gross hypocrisy. Then the blame game started. DeSantis and Abbott… they are simply evil men, using the poor as political pawns. How do we know? The liberal press is blasting out this message via bullhorns.

As any thinking person knows, the blame lies in Washington, DC thanks to the lax administration of Joe Biden, his lackey Kamala Harris, and the super-incompetent Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

Making the Dollars Go Further

Apparently Governor DeSantis had to pay handsomely to fly the 50 “exploited souls” to Martha’s Vineyard. However, here is a solution for sending even more, at a far lower cost per person. Buy or rent one of the many cruise ship for sale from the cruise companies which have been hit hard over last 30 months and that now seek to reduce some of their inventory.

Personally, having cruised 39 times, and I can tell you that the these big ships can comfortably accommodate between 2500 passengers. The mega-ships can accommodate 4500. For a short trip up the Atlantic coast, doubling and tripling the number of family members in each room would sum to nearly 10,000 on one voyage. From Texas, navigating the Gulf of Mexico, or directly from Florida, heading up the Atlantic Ocean, a ship could reach Massachusetts within three days.

During the time of the voyage, the facilities on board are excellent. There are health clubs, saunas, steam rooms, a running track, and even a swimming pool or two. These guests of Joe Biden, transported by governors, would actually enjoy themselves on the way up, and then, by golly, be rewarded via the largesse that represents the good people of Massachusetts.

Fulfilling Sanctuary Dreams

Governor DeSantis, as well as Governor Abbott, employing cruise ships could then supply all the sanctuary cities along the Atlantic Seaboard with exactly what they’ve been begging for. After all these years, hey, why not make a wonderful delivery to Baltimore, and then Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where the Bidens frequent?

And how about 1,000s of migrants delivered to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the Hamptons in Long Island? Don’t forget Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut before proceeding to Newport, Rhode Island, Nantucket, and Boston. For good measure make some deliveries to the resort towns in Maine.

What a marvel to behold, as these self-described caring destinations welcome thousands and thousands of migrants, all at once, and artfully absorb them. Sure, there will be some adjustments; such locales will have to spend big bucks for food, shelter, and clothing for these new arrivals… and then find them longer term homes and jobs. So what if local schools are not equipped with foreign language teachers and curricula so that the new children can get up to snuff? Isn’t that what sanctuary cities are all about?

Just Checking In

Let’s revisit all of these places one year later and see exactly how these welcome guests have feared. How about crime? Have they had run-ins with the law? What about the schools? How about public health? Let’s take a very accurate snapshot of what happens on the day they arrived, versus one year later, two years later, and three years later.

Having people dumped into your community, or your home for that matter, despite liberal virtue-signaling, represents a huge change in how you live, and how they live. It’s humanitarian to help a migrant in need. Thousands of migrants, or tens of thousands of them, all at the same time, dropped into a community is not a humanitarian gesture, it is an attack on your way of life.

As Henry Kissinger famously advised then German chancellor Angela Merkel, helping one person in dire need to come to Germany is a humanitarian gesture. Having great masses come to Germany threatens your culture.
