Ya know, as I often say, there’s stupid, stuck on stupid, and then a special kind of stupid…and then there is progressive socialism embodied within the Democrat Party.I recently shared my thoughts and perspectives on the delusion of the liberal progressive left and what appears to be a acute form of dementia — certainly a pathology that refutes any logic, reason and reality. One thing you can depend on the left to do is provide plenty of anecdotal evidence of their certifiable state of being chuckleheads.
As reported by Fox News, “Two Democratic congressmen plan to draft articles of impeachment after accusing President Trump of obstruction of justice, despite a large swath of bipartisan lawmakers warning against a rush to judgment.In a press conference Wednesday, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, and Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., announced their intention to draft articles of impeachment. The announcement came hours after four crucial intelligence witnesses testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and fielded questions regarding the Russia probe and possible Trump campaign collusion, and the day before former FBI Director James Comey gave his long-awaited testimony.
“In the spirit of keeping the republic, I have concluded that the president has obstructed justice and in so doing, the remedy for obstruction of justice is impeachment,” Green said. “The president will not be indicted while he is in office, and while there is some merit in talking about the judicial process, the impeachment process is the one that will bring him before the bar of justice.” Green added: “I will file articles of impeachment to impeach President Donald J. Trump for obstruction of justice.” Sherman… told reporters, “I’m not going to be deterred.”
“If this were on the floor today, it would not pass,” Sherman said. “This is going to be a long process.” Green said that firing former FBI Director James Comey was “obstruction of justice.” “This will continue to be obstruction of justice regardless of testimony given by Mr. James Comey. This will remain obstruction of justice regardless of the findings of any investigation,” he said.”Update: after the Comey testimony, which truly confirmed there was no “obstruction of justice,” Representatives Green and Sherman continue to chase windmills. Again, these fellas have a conviction looking for evidence, but they will not be deterred — as stated — regardless of the lack of evidence or truth to the contrary.
However, I find this whole endeavor, along with the resistance movement, to be completely political and absurd. Consider this, where were Reps. Sherman and Green when one former president named Bill Clinton pulled a surprise undisclosed visit with the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, when there was an open investigation against former President Clinton’s wife, who was running for president?
Where is the outrage about “obstruction of justice” when we know Director Comey testified that Attorney General Lynch directed him not to use the words “investigation” but rather “matter” when it came to Mrs. Clinton’s case? Yes, you hear that? uh huh, crickets. And somehow these two cheeky fellas want us to take them seriously and believe they’re credible, and not just two delusional political hacks? I’m quite sure we could go back not too far and find both of these chuckleheads wanting FBI Director James Comey fired. And if they weren’t listening, President Trump was and is not under any investigation emanating from the FBI…but Hillary Clinton was.Somehow Reps. Green and Sherman didn’t find it an impeachable offense when Barack Obama shipped off millions of dollars, laundered into Swiss francs, to Iran in the middle of the night. They didn’t find it impeachable to have a president who abandoned Americans to die when under attack from Islamic jihadists, and then lied about the nature of the assault. They never questioned Susan Rice for her dubious five-time lying performance, nor the sitting secretary of state, later Democrat Party presidential nominee. When did we EVER hear Green and Sherman show concern about Eric Holder and the Fast and Furious scheme from the Obama administration, that resulted in the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry? What is so very perplexing and telling about the progressive socialist left and these two rascals using crayons to draw up articles of impeachment is that we have a previous presidential administration where Americans were killed, due singularly to the deceitful and dismissive actions of Obama…but hey, that was cool by them.
I’ve said it before and will say it over and over again. The only real “impeachable offense” that President Trump is guilty of is winning the election in November 2016. Therefore the left, aided by a corrupt liberal progressive media machine, will continue to hound him until they exact their two pounds of flesh. But this has no meaning, no credibility coming off the heels of what was clearly THE most corrupt, and dare I say, evil presidential administration we have seen in modern times.
Do Reps. Green and Sherman believe it’s fine to unleash the tyranny of the IRA, oops, I mean IRS against the American people? Can they actually believe lying about a major policy endeavor known as Obamacare is completely acceptable — after all President Obama was awarded the Politifact 2013 “Lie of the Year.”And collusion with Russia? What do you call it when Obama leans over, in a supposed “off mic” moment, and expresses to then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev “tell Vladimir I’ll have have more flexibility after my reelection?” Just look at the global gains made by Putin and Russia. Oh by the way, did Green and Sherman ever show anguish and angst about Hillary Clinton’s uranium deal with the Russians?
With all this being said, what truly angers me the most — and yes, I expect utter stupidity and hypocrisy from the progressive socialist left — is the pure cowardice of the Republicans on Capitol Hill. If there were someone with cojones and courage, they would’ve looked at Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and repeated exactly what I’ve addressed here. They would have told them that for eight years we watched countless examples of unconstitutional actions and definable “high crimes and misdemeanors” by Barack Obama and you said or did nothing. We’re not holding any insidious hearings; we’re focused on the legislative and policy agenda for which the American people gave us this majority. If you want to sit in a corner and whine, we’ll order cheese. The is a contact sport, a bare knuckles brawl, and there are no Marquess of Queensberry rules of order and decorum when you’re dealing with the likes of Reality Leigh Winner…or for that matter Reps. Green and Sherman. I’m very close to referring the latter two for some psychiatric evaluation…something else the morally challenged progressive socialist left has recommended for President Trump.
Articles of Impeachment? Really fellas, let me tell you in simple Southern vernacular, what ever you write up, isn’t even worthy of being used in a field latrine. It’s time we look the left in the face and push back. There’s so very much at stake here, mainly the future of our Constitutional Republic. Never have I seen a greater collection of jackasses — their party symbol — who become more enraged over the weather 100 years from now than the Islamic jihadists killing and beheading us today. Now, explain to me, who in their right mind would take these people seriously? Today’s Democrat Party has been overtaken by the progressive socialist left, and truly the inmates of the insane asylum, such as U.S. Representatives Al Green and Brad Sherman are indicative of such.
All I can say is, thank God these weren’t the type of men this country produced some 242 years ago, or else we’d still be speaking with an English accent.
