Why the Democrats are so crazy to impeach

| December 7, 2019

Seal of the President of the United States

Poetrooper sends us an article from the American Thinker blog, penned by this Russ Vaughn fellow. Agree or not, Mr. Vaughn’s interpretation of cause and effects of the events following the 2016 elections are worth the read.

Russ Vaughn:

Surf the conservative websites, and you’ll find endless articles and comments asking, “Why do the Democrats hate Trump so much? Why are they so hell-bent on impeaching him?” Until the past year, there really wasn’t any explanation out there, but with what we’ve learned since 2018 from FBI texts, tapes, and emails, as well as other disclosures, a wide, sweeping campaign to undermine a Trump presidency was in the works well before he was even elected. Why is that?

To answer that, we need to consider what it was about Hillary Clinton winning in 2016 that was so crucial to Democrats that the Obama administration’s CIA and FBI would conduct an illegal, clandestine operation to ensure that it happened. The obvious answer is that under a Hillary administration, there would be no investigations into the many questionable dealings of the Obama administration or of Hillary, herself, and the massive growth in her Clinton Foundation “charity” and her personal wealth while serving as secretary of state.

But there is a better reason, one that benefits not just Obama, Hillary and those who assisted in their illicit activities, but the Democrat party as a whole and the socialist movement in America — with truly historical consequences.

There have been numerous disclosures revealing that the Democrats were planning Trump’s impeachment even before he was inaugurated. Peter Strzok, central to the FBI’s effort to defeat Trump, referred to an “insurance policy” should he be elected. All evidence points to the reality that the Democrats and the Deep State were committed to destroying Trump before he could take any presidential actions. And what was it that the newly elected Trump could do that would have the most lasting negative impact on the Democrats’ and liberal Deep State’s most cherished ambitions? Was it perhaps his ability to make hundreds of lifelong appointments of federal district judges, not to mention his ability to ensure a conservative Supreme Court for decades to come?

Democrats have long known that what they can’t achieve at the ballot box or through legislation, they can accomplish through leftist judicial activism. A major reason the Democrats control the West Coast is the über-liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has upheld almost every cockamamie liberal cause brought before it. The Dems knew that Hillary would pack the federal judicial system with left-wing lawyers who would remove all legal obstructions from the path of their socialist ambitions. The stymieing of this leftist project of remaking of the federal judiciary had been a major frustration for the Democrats during the Obama administration due to the Republican-controlled Senate delaying or blocking Obama’s liberal appointees.

    Trump not only beat them, he made it look easy. He is not only undoing their damage by appointing judges, he is making it look easy.

    Vote Republican and things get better.

    Why, if this catches on, progressives might … lose.

    (Grin)

  2. UpNorth says:

    And, this also explains why the dems/Deep State keep pumping just a little more life into RBG every time she checks into a hospital. Can’t let her go, SCOTUS would go from 5-4 to 6-3, in favor of the Republic.

  3. Roh-Dog says:

    The Left is a [Culture] suicide cult.
    Prove me wrong.

  4. STSC(SW/SS) says:

    Voting Democrat is like selling your soul to the Devil.

    You get a little something in the beginning but you end up with nothing in the end.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Their Great Hope was Hillary, and she failed. The “hope and change” by Obama was a rambling parade on a beaten path that came to a dead end.

    Nothing worked in the 1930s, didn’t work in the 1950s and still doesn’t work. Americans aren’t as gullible and stupid as the Democrats think they are. Despite the vast wasteland of electronic junk, and sloppy education in college, the people coming out of college with massive debt have harsh reality to face; they have no skills and no one is interested in their social twaddle, so they are going to have to grow up quickly now. And finding that the crap they were promised isn’t panning out can/will create enormous disillusion in them.

      EX, you are so right with this! The cold hard facts of life are starting to hit home with the ones that aren’t too sedated with their drug of choice.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        “…too sedated with their drug of choice.”

        Odd how the gubmint spent billions and billions for the “War on Drugs” and now they are decriminalizing pot right and left to keep the useful idiots stoned and to collect massive amounts tax dollars.

        We’ve said many times here. Trump defeating dasHildabeast The Bitch of Benghazi, slowed down the destruction of our Republic. The Deep State, made up of career politicians from BOTH sides AND the career gubmint employees, have done and will continue to do whatever they can to derail the saving of our Republic.

        VOTE…make your friends go VOTE. get them to make their friends go VOTE. If not, we will be taking up the pitchforks and torches.

      • Inbred Redneck says:

        Is it just my age that makes me think that for most of ’em, that “drug of choice” is the little Magic Elf Box, without which they wouldn’t even be able to find a “safe place” where they could play with puppies and Play-Doh and forget about the real world?

    • Poetrooper says:

      Disillusionment? Maybe, but the flip side of that debt argument is that it makes the Dems’ promises of student debt forgiveness very attractive to them.

      Think about it–would a $100,000 debt burden suddenly removed from your future buy your vote?

      • NHSparky says:

        If I were stupid and shortsighted, yes.

        But then again, one would have to be in order to incur six-figure educational debt in the first place.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Considering the numbers of full scholarships available, Poe, I can’t say that I feel very sorry for anyone who can’t come up with a better plan than borrowing money to pay for school.

        I had the GI Bill, which has changed (again), and my state has tuition grants for veterans at all state schools. So why are these young people being talked into taking on debt that will take longer than their retirement age to pay off? And they get useless degrees, when there is a demand for USEFUL degreed graduates. Some companies will pay for grad school degrees related to work, e.g., accounting MBAs.

        I fail to understand why they let themselves get sucked into this nonsense.

        • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

          Most four year degrees are overrated these days, the Blue Collar World has far more openings these days, just look at the headhunters that recruit at Trade Schools! Someone graduating from one of those can demand a paycheck around twice that of most four year grads. Take Joe and Tom for an example, Joe has just graduated from a four year liberal arts school with a BA in Philosophy with a dump truck load of student loan debt while Tom has just finished a four year internship with a Power Company. Joe can’t find a decent paying job while Tom is making good money with no debt. Joe thinks that those who didn’t go to four years of college are dumb while Tom comes by Joe’s place to cut off his electricity for Joe’s failure to pay his power bill!

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        In their minds, someone has got to pay for that worthless BA degree in Transgendered Lithuanian Poets of the 17th Century… and they can’t do it on a Barista’s salary.

        • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

          Or a PhD in Chinese Politics, talk about a worthless degree!

        • Poetrooper says:

          It’s not just philosophy/gender studies majors: Back in the early 90’s when I was still calling on military hospitals, I had a young Army doc, a captain and third-year resident in family practice, share his woes with me that he and his lawyer wife had $105,000 in student loan debt. Today, the equivalent of that would be close to $200,000.

          • NHSparky says:

            Combined.

            And those are post-graduate degrees that are actually in demand.

            We’re talking BA Liberal Arts degrees with little demand in the actual workforce from schools that charge $25-60k per year in tuition alone.

            Yet Engineering and other STEM schools, while not cheap, do tend to be less expensive and those grads have much better prospects after graduation.

    • SgtBob says:

      Yep. Democrats have been trying for 90 years to get control of the American people. The Great Depression provided an open door through which Democrats wheeled numerous plans and programs. The goal was to get complete control, and then the people would have to depend on government for jobs, homes and food, as well as schools and transportation. The Democrats are still trying. Their people are firmly entrenched in the Swamp bureaucracy, and most cannot be fired or dismissed. We have to hold on to what we have and push back at every election, local, state and federal.

      • Perry Gaskill says:

        Some things need to be judged in a temporal context. The crash on Wall Street in 1929 caused unemployment to spike to 26 percent. Roughly two-thirds of state banks failed. Farmers in the Mid-West faced a years-long drought and Dust Bowl which threatened the ability of the country to feed itself.

        Franklin Roosevelt can be accused of a lot of things, but one of them, to give credit where it’s due, was not sitting around pointing fingers instead of trying to fix systemic problems. Some of the New Deal policies might indeed have been a matter of throwing ideas against a wall to see what would stick, but others such as major public works projects both needed to be done and provided jobs. Personally, I don’t have a problem with electrification efforts in the rural South via the TVA, or the construction of the Hoover Dam.

        And if progress means building infrastructure so that a majority of Americans, unlike India, can have flush toilets, I’m okay with that.

        It can also be argued that some of Roosevelt’s policies, working as a matter of getting all the cats herded in the same direction, would put the country in better shape than otherwise when the storm clouds of World War II started to loom on the horizon.

        It’s also important, at least it seems to me, to remember that the terms “Democrat” and “Progressive” don’t mean the same thing now that they once did. Somehow those terms have been co-opted by a latter-day cabal of neo-Marxists. One of my grand fathers, who lived through the Depression, was a blue-collar working man who voted Democrat all his life. He would likely find absurd the current Social Justice clamoring for political correctness, open borders, and such claims as “diversity is our strength.”

        • Slow Joe says:

          I am sorry Perry Gaskill, but the Democrat party have always been an scam.

          I have been reading a lot recently of the history of the Democrat party, and it looks to me that the specifics of the scam have changed over the years, but it was always a scam.

          • Fyrfighter says:

            There’s also evidence that many of FDR’s policies actually made the depression worse, not better. such as:

            • Perry Gaskill says:

              It seems to me important to remember that there are loons at both ends of the political spectrum. Robert Higgs, the guy who wrote the linked piece, is a self-described libertarian anarchist who was living in Mexico in 2005 when the piece was written. As it happens, this was just prior to the mortgage meltdown starting in 2007. Those who have followed the meltdown and bank bailouts would probably argue that the repeal of Glass-Steagall, an act passed early in the Roosevelt era, was a prime cause of the financial markets blowing up.

              One of problems I have with free-market libertarian anarchist economists, such as Higgs, is that their unrealistic academic world view supports, like Gordon Gekko, the idea that greed is good. Fortunately, for the rest of us who live in the real world, things like loan sharking and insider trading continue to be illegal, and people like Bernie Madoff go to jail for Ponzi schemes.

    The libtard left screeches about Foreign interference in elections, yet they bawl to let illegal aliens vote, more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder! The election of President Trump keeps the insider circles of DC scared shitless because they see him as a threat to their ride on a perpetual gravy train and their grip on power and control. They have been richly deserving of a firm kick in the ass for decades which President Trump is giving them thus I say TRUMP/PENCE 2020, let’s keep this train running at full throttle!!!

  9. OWB says:

    OK. I’ll admit that my first response to the question, “Why are the Dems so crazy to impeach?” is simply, “Because they ARE crazy.”

  10. 26Limabeans says:

    They dare not take up arms.
    It would signal their end.
    And they know it.

    • Slow Joe says:

      They are planning to use the US military against the American people.

      Whoever controls the gruberment controls the military.

      As long as they manage to create the fiction that the orders are legal, we in active duty have no choice but to follow all legal orders or face the mighty hammer of the UCMJ.

      It is not gonna happen any time soon, but they are slowly and systematically manipulating our culture and the interpretation of our laws to lead us to a an internal confrontation.

      Right now, I am saddened to acknowledge that a sizable percentage of our officer corp is left of center and actively believes in such fictions as the climate change and multiculturalism.

      The NCO corp will not be much better, as a good chunk of the new enlisted crowd heavily leans left, and in time some of them they will become NCOs.

      So yeah.

      Elections do matter. Voting is the most critical thing you might ever do in your life. If you care about the future of our Republic.

  11. Just An Old Dog says:

    The whole Impeachment thing is nothing more than the Democrats trying to get their ” yellow dogs” type voters to get off their asses and vote in 2020 and cause enough doubt with Republicans to keep them home.
    Roughly 30 percent of registered voters stay home. Elections are all about getting your side to the polls.

    Because they have nothing else for 2020?
