THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from House Minority Leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

Here is his view of what Democrats, using House Intelligence Committee Chair, Rep. adam schiff (D-CA) as the vehicle, are attempting to do:

“It is clear now more than ever, this is a calculated coup and it is being orchestrated by Adam Schiff. 

“This has been orchestrated, and if it goes out longer, we will find the lies, we will find out how they calculated the truth, we’ll find more about the whistleblower’s attorney and others.” 

Those are very strong words.  But it is hard to argue against them since. what often gets lost in the arguments over who did or said what and when it occurred, there is absolutely nothing impeachable about what happened.

The President of the United States stands accused of demanding that a foreign leader conduct an investigation, and threatening to withhold aid from the leader’s country unless the investigation takes place.

Forgetting  – for just a moment – that the transcript of his call to that leader, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky,  contains no threat and does not mention withholding funds, there is nothing in the constitution that prevents a President from demanding an investigation or from withholding aid from a country.  Nothing.  So – worst case scenario – even if President Trump did exactly what he is accused of, there would not be any impeachable offense…

…any more than it was impeachable for President Obama to tell Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to pass along to President Vladimir Putin that “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility”.

OK, now, let’s re-remember what we forgot about for the last minute or so:  In point of fact, the transcript of President Trump’s call to Ukraine President Zelensky contains no threat and does not mention withholding funds (Zelensky has confirmed the transcript is accurate and he felt no pressure to do anything.).

So even if it were an impeachable offense, it never happened.

In other words – as I have noted in previous blogs – this is, literally, the Seinfeld Impeachment:  an impeachment about nothing.

(That, of course, is before we get to the fact that, even if the Democrat-controlled House votes to impeach President Trump, his removal would necessitate a minimum of 20 Republican senators to boot him out – which, will never, ever happen.)

But all logic and reality aside, the Democrat Party, using serial liar adam schiff as its front man, is trying – with copious help from its accomplice media – to pretend something here is impeachable anyway.

And since the last thing they want is an honest hearing – which would show the reasons that Biden and his son should have been investigated – we have the spectacle of schiff telling Republicans who they can and can’t call as witnesses.

-Hunter Biden, whose placement on the Board of Directors at Burisma energy company is the heart of this supposed threat/quid pro quo?  Nope, sorry, he can’t be called to testify.

-The so-called “whistleblower” – who everyone now knows is Eric Ciaramella , an anti-Trump activist who worked directly with Joe Biden and John Brennan, thus is not a “whistleblower” at all but an obvious Democrat plant?  Sorry again.  He won’t be allowed to testify either.

This is supposed to be an honest impeachment inquiry?  Surrrrrre.  And Ponzi was an honest investment counselor.

I award Kevin McCarthy Quote Of The Day honors for calling this exactly what it is:  a calculated coup.

But, if it is any consolation to Mr. McCarthy, a calculated coup so blatantly fraudulent that it is already starting to backfire on the Democrats orchestrating it.

  • I have a quote that should be considered, considering what we are witnessing at the highest levels of our government.
    Penned by Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) in the Declaration of Independence:
    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    • This part in particular should be debated.
