The Democrats are full-on totalitarian socialists, would appear willing to use any means they can find to overturn the democratic process. The most astonishing part of the past three years has been the revelation how corrupt the left in the United States is, having commenced their efforts to spy on the Republican candidate while Obama was still president, and then cobble together absolutely anything to find some, any, justification to overturn the election result. Impeachment does not of course mean that the president will leave office but that he will go to trial in the Senate where it requires a two-thirds majority vote to remove the President. That will never happen.

The left has descended into madness, but that is no excuse for any of it. Not an ounce of principle on the left, while the most astonishing part of all of it has been how unblemished Donald Trump is, both in what he has done and in his basic personal integrity. Not to mention how positive every one of his policies have been.

Two bits to help you see where we are at. This is Conrad Black – who knows a thing about corrupt prosecutions – discussing The Impeachment Farce Limps Along to Its Anticlimax. Which begins:

This sordid, contemptible impeachment ruse is finally disintegrating. It was another fraud, and I predict that this time the polls will move clearly in the president’s favor. There are limits to how often his enemies can get the public and the world to the edges of their chairs with their fantastic accusations. The Economist, a long-respected magazine in earlier times, told us a year ago that the Trump presidency was hanging on the thread of Michael Cohen’s testimony. Most of the U.S. media gave the public to understand for two years that there was a high chance that he would be thrown out once the Mueller investigation established his “treasonous” links to the Russians. Trump appalls many reasonable people by some of his antics and utterances, but his supporters are rock-solid at only slightly less than half the country, and enough to have got him elected. But the vitriolic antagonism of about 90 percent of the media, and the fear and loathing of the political class, which he assaulted in its entirety, have sustained an artificial levitation of morbid expectation that he will be overthrown and removed.

And then there is hour-long interview with Victor Davis Hanson who has just published a book on The Case for Trump which he discusses in the video. He is by no means a partisan but he does at least establish just how sordid and diseased the opposition to the president is.

    MSM could put all this to bed if they really really and truly wanted to.

  2. Roger

    2 Democrats voted against.

    Any idea who they are?

    Meanwhile, what did Obama know and when?

  3. Today’s MSM is the most morally bankrupt group of individuals and collective in living memory, and perhaps history itself.

    American Left media won’t rest until Trump is assassinated, which I do believe they secretly want as long as the act itself is not done by a registered Democrat.
    Dreadful thing to say, I know, but I believe it to be true. Their media push the Democrat Party on to higher nastiness and anti-democracy all of which is like an evolving cycle of violence.

    “Democrats are full-on totalitarian socialists”. Like Stalin? Reminds me of a comment by a German who moved to Australia in the 1970s: ‘In (west) Germany I was in the middle politically, in Australia people regard me as an extreme communist.”

    I know this is a rhetorical device, speaking to the in-group, but it only works because all sides in American politics are on the right/centre-right, and no-body today knows much history.

    You fund the left and let them expand and it will not end in anything but misery and bloodshed.

    Being in opposition is anti democratic according to the left.
    The system is being abused and institutions are crumbling because they are not in charge……………..

    Seriously, ask them, this president is wrecking democracy and the institutions of government……no he’s just won the election and doing what he promised to do, so you will see civil war if you remove him unconstitutionally.
    Yanks aren’t Australians and they’re still armed.

  7. American Left media won’t rest until Trump is assassinated

    To the Left, Trump is more dangerous than any other individual in the world as he, more than anyone else, is unraveling everything that the Left has worked to achieve in the last half century.

    If the Left is prepared to go to the lengths that they are not just in the US but all over the world, imagine what life would be like if they achieved their goals?

  8. candy

    so you will see civil war if you remove him unconstitutionally.

    could happen, Struth.

    Unblemished? Now there’s a word that’s never been used to describe Trump before…

    Same with personal integrity.

    He’s lost most of the key staff he hired when he started, and most of their replacements. Several of them are now in jail, or have left in disgrace. Either because Trump now thinks they’re a disgrace, or because they think Trump is a disgrace. Either way, doesn’t reflect well on Trump.

    The word ‘chaos’ seems more appropriate. And that’s putting his policies aside entirely (some of which I agree with, others I don’t)

  10. The word ‘chaos’ seems more appropriate.

    A good leader is prepared to get rid of poor staff, whether they were originally of his choosing or not. And if what Trump has achieved is through chaos, we need more chaos.

  11. Tim Neilson

    The word ‘chaos’ seems more appropriate.

    Rubbish. Trump’s modus operandi throughout his business life has been to hire, assess, then make a decision quickly whether to retain or fire. On his very first major project he hired and fired several managers before finding one who then did most of his work for the next couple of decades.

  12. He’s lost most of the key staff he hired when he started, and most of their replacements.

    I should have added that it’s a public service mentality to just keep holding on to non-performing staff and even promoting them to try and avoid having to make difficult personnel decisions.

  13. FelixKruell

    Bemused:

    A good leader is prepared to get rid of poor staff, whether they were originally of his choosing or not. And if what Trump has achieved is through chaos, we need more chaos.

    Sure, but after a while when there are so many ‘poor’ staff to be gotten rid of, it reflects badly on the leader. Suggesting that they aren’t so good after all.

  14. Felix has now transitioned from effective and sly left wing concern troll to a rabid, out and proud TDS sufferer.

  15. FelixKruell

    Frank:

    The first sign of a troll is one who makes ad hominem attacks, rather than engage in the comment/discussion.

    Trump took over a very deep and rancid swamp. It takes a while to clean things out and while you do, all manner of refuse is discovered.

    I get that. But these are largely his own people, that he newly hired. In my line of work, seeing high turnover in a CEO’s hand picked leadership team is a really bad sign.

    He picked people who he believed to be good and on his side, but you don’t know until you’ve worked with them for a while. He gave all of them a chance but they made their own choices.

    I’ve worked in organisations where there are heaps of people that can talk the talk but can’t walk the walk. They deceive their bosses for only so long and then get caught out, some just take a little bit longer to make a mistake or show their colours.

    A few you would expect. When it’s this many, it suggests the problem lies higher up.

  20. B.A.Lert

    It shows Felix that Trump hires people to get the bloody job done. Clearly he see’s an outcome is more important than the process and doesn’t keep people because it’s their turn or some other political machinations .

  21. Tracey

    Dont forget Felix that the petulant Democrats refused to confirm quite a few of President Trump’s choices for a whole array of important positions. We’ll never know how different his Administration might have been if he could have had more of the people he wanted to work with.

  22. Tracey

    Meant to add that I’m aware that sometimes happens to Democrat Presidents too but I don’t recall any of those being flayed in the media 24/7 when a staffer departed.

  23. Judge Dredd

    FelixKruell, you’ve turned up to the wrong rodeo. You know where the door is, you should see yourself out before you say something really stupid like “Hillary would be a better president “.

  24. FelixKruell

    Judge:

    FelixKruell, you’ve turned up to the wrong rodeo. You know where the door is, you should see yourself out before you say something really stupid like “Hillary would be a better president “.

    Clearly. You lot can’t take mild criticism of even one aspect of what Trump does. You’ve blindly picked a side, in the same way as you criticised so many Obama supporters for having done. It’s just sad.

    I don’t support Hillary or the Democrats. I like lots of Trumps policies. But I think he’s made plenty of mistakes, and has demeaned the office.

  25. HE DEMEANED THE OFFICE!

    You’re taking the piss, pal.

    If you’re a libertarian, he’s just another politician and only marginally above being spat upon.

  26. The first sign of a troll is one who makes ad hominem attacks, rather than engage in the comment/discussion.

    Unblemished? Now there’s a word that’s never been used to describe Trump before…

    Same with personal integrity.

    Like I said, you’re taking the piss.
