It is all theatrics but the aim is to place an historical asterisk next to the name of the most successful yet most reviled (by his enemies) President of my lifetime: House impeaches Trump a second time.
Suppose there was no Antifa involvement whatsoever in the attack on the Capitol in Washington, how much reporting of such involvement would end up in the media? Why none at all. Now suppose the entire attack had been organised and co-ordinated by Antifa and their allies, how much of that would show up in the media? Funny enough, it would be exactly the same, there would be no reporting of any such involvement at all. The video above is from “Antifa Clearly Led the Attack. That Was Utterly Obvious”.
Yet we already knew that Anitfa had been there, if from nothing else other than the video of the woman being shot to death which was taken by a known member of Antifa. And everyone on our side is perfectly aware that the so-called “riot” had not been instigated by the President, nor had been supported by him.
The left nevertheless continue its relentless attack on truth, of which they care nothing about at all, to implant this memory, in the same way the have made Joe McCarthy their standard for political evil even though everything McCarthy said about communist infiltration into the American State Department turned out to be 100% true. So the riot at the Capitol will enter into that same kind of historical record where the lies that are being spread at every turn by the left and their allies becomes the only “truth” they will be willing to acknowledge.
Yet this is a particularly interesting statistic of the moment: The vast majority of Trump supporters would still vote for Trump if the election were held today.
Despite their criticism of his conduct since November 3rd and last week, 𝟵𝟭% of Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Luntz said on his official social media account. Another 4% said they would switch their vote to President-elect Joe Biden, 3% said they would vote for someone else or write in someone else, and 2% said they wouldn’t vote at all.
The question that was not asked was how many of those who voted for Biden would have voted for him had they known then what they know now. The Trump majority in actual votes cast would have been even larger. In this post by the great Jack Cashill, he points out:
With his back to the wall, Trump rallied the last bulwark against this encroaching tyranny, the American people. In so doing, he showed the comically obvious hypocrisy of the Left’s support for “largely peaceful” protests.
Although events this past week did not appear to work out as we might have liked, appearances can be deceiving. There were lessons learned, eyes opened. It seems somehow providential that the people’s protest at the “People’s House” occurred on the Epiphany.
There are only around 74 million voters who know they have been cheated. These things will continue to matter. But on this one issue of eradicating Donald Trump from the record, both the Democrats and the Republicans are apparently united.
ADDING AN AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE: From Instapundit with the little number below that gets you to the comments.
THE CRAZY YEARS CONTINUE: House impeaches Trump a second time, but conviction and removal are unlikely.
They were talking about impeaching him before he was even sworn in, which tells you a lot about the seriousness of this stuff.
