The Deep State cabal of corrupt Justice Department officials, Robert Mueller, establishment politicians and the disgustingly dishonest media have been unable to uproot POTUS Donald Trump from the White House, try as they have, so now they’re just going throwing out all the stops and going for the jugular.
Now, establishment media icon The Atlantic magazine has come out full-throated in support of that strategy, with its cover this week emblazoned with the word, “IMPEACH.’
There’s just one problem, however. POTUS Trump hasn’t done anything wrong or illegal.
Sure, he tweets a lot. He takes government planes away from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He’s brusque, feisty, combative, and sometimes petulant (who in Washington isn’t?).
But the constitutional standard for impeachment is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and so far that standard hasn’t been met.
Yes, special counsel Mueller is ‘investigating’ — something, someone — using prosecutors who either donated to Hillary Clinton or were in on this creating his ‘Russian collusion’ hoax. But no crimes have been found to have been committed by this president. No collusion with Moscow to steal the election. No proof or evidence of any ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’
And what makes this Left-wing, Deep State call for Trump’s impeachment so insanely silly is the fact the same people calling for 45’s impeachment were conspiciously, hypocrtically silent throughout Barack Obama’s eight-year criminal odyssey.
“President Obama wasn’t corrupt,” huff his supporters. “He never did anything wrong! But TRUMP? Well….he’s the worst!”
It’s high time Americans were reminded just how corrupt and, yes, impeachable Obama was:
Impeachable Offense No. 1: Fast and Furious — One of the earliest of the Obama scandals, this ATF-Justice Department operation involved running thousands of American-purchased guns into Mexico, allegedly with the intent of tracing them back to drug cartels (as if American law enforcement has any jurisdiction south of the border). In reality, the operation was a massive gun control push; the goal to ensure those guns, most of which were “assault” weapons, to be used in crimes in the U.S. so as to justify new restrictive gun control regulations.
As for the crime aspect, some Fast and Furious guns were used to commit murders in the U.S. — of American federal law enforcement including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Impeachable Offense No. 2: Weaponizing federal agencies for profit: As Peter Schweizer wrote in his book, “Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends,” Obama and his administration would deem industries either destructive to the environment or exploitative for the financial and professional gain of his friends, including industries such as coal mining, offshore drilling, cash advance companies, and for-profit colleges,” wrote Katelyn Caralle of the Washington Examiner.
It worked like this: Obama pals Marty Nesbitt and Harreld Kirkpatrick III formed a private equity investment firm called Vistria around the time Obama was re-elected in 2012.
There’s nothing wrong with that, except, as Schweizer notes in his book, “A curious pattern began to emerge. Obama and his administration would attack industries with government power, which led to substantially lower valuations for these companies. Nesbitt and Vistria, or others close to Obama, could then acquire those assets for pennies on the dollar.”
Impeachable Offense No. 3: Spygate — This one is still unfolding, but here’s what we know so far. Obama weaponized the FBI, Justice Department, and the Intelligence Community to launch an operation aimed at undermining POTUS Trump’s administration after he unexpectedly won defeated the second-most corrupt Democrat on the planet, Hillary Clinton.
Obtaining FISA court warrants under fraudulant circumstances, lying to Congress and federal investigators, and abuse of power are just three of the subplots involved in Spygate, which is perhaps the biggest political scandal in the history of our country. Mueller’s ongoing probe is cover for this.
Impeachable Offense No. 4: Benghazi — Obama and Clinton literally sacrificed an American diplomat, Christopher Stevens, and three special operators so they could invade Libya without a congressional declaration of war and help facilitate the “Arab Spring” which has so far seen the destruction of Syria, Libya, and parts of Iraq. Tens of thousands of people have been killed because of the Obama regime’s intervention.
Remember Hillary’s flippant observation, “We came, we saw, he died,” after hearing deposed Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi had been killed?
Impeachable Offense No. 5: DACA — After stating repeatedly ahead of his 2012 reelection campaign that he alone as president did not have the authority to ‘legalize’ hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens brought into the country as children, he did it anyway via executive order.
Obama’s “Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals” was a blatantly unconstitutional and authoritarian power grab in that he rewrote statutory law with the stroke of a pen; only Congress can change laws.
Impeachable Offense No. 6: IRS targeting of conservative groups — Obama directed his Internal Revenue Service to deny tax-exempt status to dozens of conservative groups ahead of the 2012 election, making them ineligible (and unable) to partake in political activities on behalf of conservative, Republican candidates. This was blatant discrimination and an equally blatant violation of federal anti-discrimination laws and the Constitution’s guarantee of equal treatment under the law.
Impeachable Offense No. 7: Cap-and-Trade by fiat — After Congress failed to pass Obama’s expensive, unnecessary “global warming” scheme known as “Cap-and-Trade,” he had his Environmental Protection Agency impose it anyway. Obama was using the EPA “to regulate fuel economy, set climate policy for the nation and amend the Clean Air Act — powers never delegated to it by Congress,” wrote David Limbaugh.
There are many more, but these are the highlights. Obama was the most corrupt, imperious president in generations, and ripe for impeachment. But because of his skin color — and the fact that he was a Left-wing media darling — he was give pass after pass and even encouraged to break laws and violate the Constitution as long as his ‘targets’ were conservatives.
The Left wants to impeach POTUS Trump? Good luck trying to justify it.
