Donald Trump

The Trivialization of Impeachment

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Our constitutional system will be damaged because impeachment will be discredited. Its invocation will be even less likely in some grievous future instance, when a presidential abuse of power actually does imperil the nation. We will have a virtually omnipotent president. As a practical matter, there will be no viable congressional check — no impeachment, no power of the purse — to rein the president in. The powers of the competing political branches will be in gross imbalance, making functional separation of powers impossible. As the Framers would tell us, that is not a prescription for the preservation of liberty.

Assault on America, Day 292: ‘Tis the season for a Democrat impeachment witch hunt?

A number of pundits have suggested Trump purposely manipulated Nancy Pelosi into impeachment knowing it would never work and therefore Democrats would be exposed for the frauds that they are. It’s the highest stakes form of “I dare you” of all-time, and we’re yet to find out whether liberals will actually go through with it.

Vile Democrat Adam Schiff Draws Opponent: California Super Lawyer Eric Early

In launching his campaign Mr. Early said, “Adam Schiff’s witch-hunt against our President is reprehensible. Schiff continually abuses his power and misleads the American people, wasting tens of millions of our dollars in the process. It’s got to stop. I’m sick and tired of being lied to by career politician Schiff as he tries to destroy the President and works to replace our Democracy with Socialism."

Assault on America, Day 289: First Dems grab your guns, then they’ll return for your religion

Common sense says it could only be a matter of years before Americans aren’t allowed to own guns or practice their religions if Democrats crawl back into power. Institutional protections and guarantees don’t mean squat when you’ve got self-interested leaders in charge. “Beto” was dumb enough to reveal our future -- take heed.

Inside the media’s relentless crusade to destroy President Trump

Kimberley Strassel, New York Post

The press has embraced its bias, joined the Resistance and declared its allegiance to one side of a partisan war. It now openly declares those who offer any fair defense of this administration as Trump “enablers.” It writes off those who question the FBI or Department of Justice actions in 2016 as “conspiracy” theorists. It acts as willing scribes for Democrats and former Obama officials; peddles evidence-free accusations; sources stories from people with clear political axes to grind; and closes its eyes to clear evidence of government abuse. For those worried about our increasingly polarized society, the media is feeding that divide.

Mitch McConnell Goes Into Full Killer Turtle Mode On Impeachment

Senator McConnell’s stinging remarks about impeachment were long overdue, and will no doubt be seen by many as some sort of milestone in the impeachment battle – and well they might prove to be if they are followed up with action. One action Senator McConnell could take is to move the Senate to immediately dismiss the charges if they are ever brought.

Assault on America, Day 288: Americans can’t wait to vote for president in 2020. Here’s why.

Any way you slice it, Donald Trump evokes strong reactions from Americans on both sides of the ideological fence. If polls indicate people are already eager to cast votes for the next president, it’s not difficult to see why. Some predict a record voter turnout…who will prevail?

Dem Front Runner Warren Agrees With Trump On Trade And Middle East Wars

One of the more bizarre elements of last night’s Democratic presidential “debate” was how much the leading Democrat – Senator Elizabeth Warren – agrees with President Trump, especially on endless Middle East wars and the effects of trade on American workers.

Assault on America, Day 287: Democrats pick a little, talk a little, cheep a lot, say nothing

There will be a Democrat name on the ballot opposite President Trump in less than thirteen months (assuming nothing comes from the impeachment farce). Tuesday night’s “debate” did little to clarify who that name will be. When all was said and done, there was more picking than talking -- a bad sign for the party out of the White House.

This Time the Yanks Are Deadly Serious

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

With no allies left fighting on our side in Syria, the small U.S. military force there is likely to be withdrawn swiftly and fully. Today, the Middle East and world have been awakened to the reality that when Trump said he was ending everlasting commitments and bringing U.S. troops home from “endless wars,” he was not bluffing. Where the Americans spent much of the Cold War ruminating about an “agonizing reappraisal” of commitments to malingering allies, this time the Yanks may be deadly serious. Every nation that today believes it has an implied or a treaty guarantee that the U.S. will fight on its behalf should probably recheck its hole card.

The resistance against Trump began the day he was elected -- This is not an impeachment process

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

By the day of the inauguration, January 20, 2017, the impeachment hunger was great enough that the Washington Post headlined Matea Gold’s article "The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun." As I wrote in my bestselling book, "Understanding Trump and Trump’s America," this effort to drive President Trump from the White House has never been about finding truth. It has always been about subverting the will of the people. You are not watching an impeachment process. You are in year three of an attempted coup d’etat, which started the day the president was elected. The evidence is there for anyone who wants to look.

Assault on America, Day 286: 12 Democrats on one debate stage equals more trouble for liberals

Regardless of what happens during the Democrat debate tonight it’s clear the party is in trouble. Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment witch-hunt has effectively stolen all the thunder from the party presidential race, a bad thing considering it wasn’t all that exciting to begin with. Will anyone even watch?

Assault on America, Day 285: Could it get any worse? Democrats ponder a President Pelosi

There’s little doubt we’re living in extraordinary times. What seemed to make sense for well over two-hundred years no longer governs in twenty-first century American politics. The only thing that’s certain to come from impeachment are unintended consequences, something Democrats better realize before they take the most drastic steps forward.

Assault on America, Day 282: Liar Pocahontas Warren fibs her way to Democrat polling lead

It's hard to say whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s latest sham (regarding her being fired from an early 70’s teaching job due to pregnancy) will signal a drop in her support. As time goes on it seems President Trump is looking stronger and stronger, and it’s more than just by default.

Assault on America, Day 281: G. Washington supplied the impetus for pulling out of Syria

President Trump will continue to draw criticism for his decision to pull U.S. forces out of Syria, but he’s doing the right thing. There simply isn’t a way to win by keeping the military involved in situations where they’re little more than human shields in the center of an ancient power struggle not of our making.

Assault on America, Day 280: It’s RINO Mitt Romney and the establishment boys vs. Trump

As long as Trump remains in the White House RINOs like Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake will have a stump to stand on -- but no one listens. Trump’s GOP critics aren’t advancing the argument or the cause by sniping from Twitter or blubbering on liberal cable news shows. Some people never learn.

The Pre-Impeachment of Donald Trump Never Stopped

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Here we are approaching the holiday season with our country -- despite record-low unemployment, growing salaries, and a near-record stock market -- riven as never before since that original Civil War, the madmen and women in Washington driven by a bloodlust more appropriate to the Middle Ages. Will they come to their senses and start addressing matters that actually have to do with people's lives, not their own puny ambitions, and petty hatreds? Unlikely. So what are we "deplorables' to do? For now, take a breath and maybe look Heavenward... and make sure we're registered to vote in November 2020 in Surprise II, the Sequel.

Assault on America, Day 279: Most endangered animal in American politics? Moderate Democrat

There’s little doubt the political species known as “Moderate Democrat” should be placed on an endangered list (if not already declared extinct). Moderation in Democrat-land earns you too many enemies and too few friends, a realization that more and more would-be candidates are discovering.

Impeachment in search of a high crime

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

American citizens will decide whether they want to replace Mr. Trump or allow him to serve another term. Any unbiased observer would tell you that it would be far fairer and more just and more honest and do far less damage to our country to allow citizens to make this decision rather than giving it to a bunch of angry, rabid Democrats in Congress. Certainly, polling suggests the American people would rather have that choice to make themselves. The only problem for Democrats is if they don’t run on impeaching Mr. Trump, they have to fall back on the issues and all their policy platforms. And that would destroy them at the ballot box.

Tell Romney, Sasse And Collins To Stop Their Virtue Signaling Attacks On Trump

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Romney, Sasse and Collins to tell them to stop virtue signaling about President Trump and to support an investigation into the gross corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden.
