The impeachment “trial” of President Trump will prove interesting, even though the Constitution clearly states that the purpose of impeachment is to remove a sitting president or government official. Kinda scary that private citizen Trump is being “tried” by the Senate, the seat of our government which is surrounded by razor wire and patrolled by the military.
I would assume this now means that President Obama can now be impeached. In addition to the obvious high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Obama, it should be noted that one of his close Chicago political allies, Bill Ayers, was a member of the “Weather Underground,” who in 1971 bombed (wait for it) the U.S. Capitol in Washington, along with quite a few other government buildings. Since Ayers has said he does not regret his bombings, I guess that would make Obama culpable of Ayers’ actions, just like what Trump is being accused of.
I wonder if President Clinton should be impeached again, since he pardoned members of the Weather Underground while he was in office. Maybe we can now put presidents Washington and Jefferson on trial since they owned slaves.
While I, along with most if not all conservatives, condemned the protests at the U.S. Capitol after they turned violent, maybe the protesters thought it was acceptable, since the left spent the summer protesting, destroying government and private property, taking over blocks of cities and letting or causing the deaths of dozens of people. While most of the cities with violent protests were controlled by the left, their leaders’ silence was deafening. The double standard is remarkable.
I will point out that in 2011, when 100,000 people occupied the Wisconsin State Capitol, Nancy Pelosi said, “Impressive show of democracy in action.” She didn’t recommend anybody be arrested or impeached at the time.
President Trump did ask the protesters to march peacefully. There are a lot of people smarter than I who say there were questions with the election results, which Trump was and is contesting. The easiest way to settle all the questions on both sides would be to have an in-depth nationwide investigation. There were court rulings, decisions made by secretaries of state and attorneys general, but no investigations. Since there was plenty of evidence on both sides of things done right and things done wrong, why not investigate and settle the questions once and for all?
I am getting tired of being called names since I voted for Trump: Deplorable, chump, Nazis, dangerous, uneducated, fascist, brainwashed, a cult member, terrorist, racist, I need to be burned down, and my favorite, a white supremacist. Which I find fascinating, since 75 million people voted for Trump and nobody noticed 75 million white supremacists running around until a few months ago. Apparently it has been mentioned by the left and national media that Trump supporters need to be “deprogramed.” That is a scary statement.
My 2 cents worth.
