The acquittal of President Donald Trump on two articles of impeachment by a vote in the U.S. Senate on February 5 should free him to pursue the urgent, dramatic strategic policy changes which led to him being targeted for a regime change coup, by those defending the Bush-Obama status quo. That status quo, which Trump pledged to overturn during his election campaign, included a commitment to remain engaged in the "endless wars" launched by Bush and Obama, and to continue the global free trade agenda, and its related anti-growth "Green" policy, which have been dismantling the manufacturing and agriculture sectors in the developed nations. Sticking to this degenerating status quo was the policy of Hillary Clinton, whom Trump defeated. In particular, it was his oft-stated commitment to work with Russia and President Putin, rather than engage in escalating provocations against Russia, which earned him the special enmity of top intelligence operatives in the United Kingdom and the Obama team, and their stooges in the Democratic Party, who were behind the "Russiagate" investigation and "Ukrainegate" impeachment against him.
After this article was completed, the Senate voted on January 31 against adding witnesses to the trial, effectively ending Democratic Party efforts to extend the trial against Trump indefinitely. It is likely Trump will be acquitted by a vote on February 5. Typically, the delusional and corrupt Rep. Adam Schiff, along with Pelosi and the other Congressional putchists, refused to accept their defeat, insisting they will continue to harass the President with more investigations.
Donald Trump is absolutely right about John Bolton, the war hawk who once served as his National Security Adviser, who is now being embraced by desperate Democrats as the possible savior for their collapsing impeachment campaign to remove him from office.
As the impeachment trial of Donald Trump opened in the U.S. Senate, the President was in Davos, Switzerland, to address the annual gathering of self-congratulatory elites, the billionaires and "influencers" who presume they have been chosen to chart the future course of mankind. The conference this year was primarily devoted to imposing a "Green" agenda on governments, to save the world from "man-made climate change." In addition to Green "celebrities", such as the angry teenager Greta Thunberg, Al Gore, Sir Nicholas Stern, Bill Gates and Prince Charles, a leading role was played by Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, who will soon become the United Nations Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance.
***BREAKING NEWS*** After this article was completed, on January 17, the defense team of President Trump filed their initial legal brief on January 18, to refute the fraudulent impeachment articles submitted by House Democrats to the Senate, for trial. In this submission, his attorneys confirm the message of this article, that impeachment has become one of the leading strategies for the Democrats in the 2020 presidential election.
In their answer, they refute the charge that President Trump committed impeachable acts. They correctly describe the articles of impeachment as "a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president," calling the impeachment "a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election."
President Trump's briefing to the American people on January 8 to defend his decision to order the killing of Iran's military leader Qasem Soleimani offered a glimpse into an ongoing internal battle over strategic policy within his administration. Trump asserted that he had made the right decision, based on intelligence that said an attack against Americans orchestrated by Soleimani was "imminent", therefore it was necessary to act immediately.
The frenzied dash by House Democrats to pass two articles of impeachment against President Trump demonstrates that its sponsors were fully aware of the weakness of their case, and also were fearful that allowing a full cross examination by Republicans of the witnesses who testified against him would reveal that there is no evidence to back the charges. At the same time, it further exposed the sense of urgency, among those behind the coup plot against him, to block his efforts to overturn the dangerous bipartisan geopolitical commitment to regime change and endless wars pursued by both Bush presidencies, Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Trump's insistence on engaging in peaceful collaborative efforts with Russian President Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, which are bearing fruit, is correctly seen by the anti-Trumpers as a threat to their collapsing unipolar geopolitical system.
The vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, in favor of two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, has virtually no chance of succeeding in his removal. To oust him requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate, which will almost certainly not happen, as Republicans hold the majority there and remain firmly in support of the President. Further, the two articles, one for "abuse of power" and the other for "obstruction of Congress", were not proven, despite weeks of hearings in which the testimony of anti-Trump officials was largely unchallenged, as the Democrats in control of the process established rules which severely limited the ability of Trump's allies to present a defense. However, even with the limitations placed on them, Republican Congressmen poked huge holes through the farcical claims the Democrats raised against him.
Lest you, dear reader, think this headline is either wild hyperbole, or just plain crazy, read what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at a CNN town meeting on December 5, several hours after she announced the House of Representatives would draft articles of impeachment against President Trump. She was asked why she had opposed impeaching President George W. Bush, when he lied that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, to justify launching the devastating war against that country. She admitted that, as Ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee, she had opposed the impeachment of President Bush, despite knowing that the justification for the Iraq War was fraudulent:
