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:
On December 5, following a whirlwind trip to Madrid for the United Nations' COP25 "Climate Change" conference, Nancy Pelosi rushed back to Washington, D.C., to announce in a press conference that the Democratic Party is now drawing up articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. This comes after the release on December 3 of a 300 page report by Rep. Adam Schiff's Intelligence Committee, accusing Trump of "abuse of power", among other charges, and after a Judiciary Committee hearing, which featured three anti-Trump, highly partisan "legal scholars" who asserted that the Founding Fathers included impeachment in the U.S. Constitution as a measure to defend against precisely the actions taken by Trump in dealing with Ukraine! A fourth witness, Jonathan Turley, a law professor from George Washington University and a self-identified Democrat, dissented in his testimony, insisting that the "rush to judgement" against the President represents an "abuse of power" by the Congressional Democrats!
On November 18, in the midst of hearings by the regime-change coup plotters aimed at removing President Trump, the President was meeting with his Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. For such a meeting to occur is highly unusual. Trump summoned Powell to the meeting, from which little of note has been reported. He tweeted afterwards only that “Everything was discussed,” while Powell’s comments were couched in the usual opaque Fed-speak, that future policy will depend on “incoming information that bears on the outlook for the economy,” and the Fed will make policy “based solely on careful, objective and non-political analysis,” blah, blah, blah....
To watch the non-stop media coverage of the Star Chamber/Soviet-style impeachment proceedings underway by Democrats and their London-based neocon imperial backers against President Donald Trump, one might for a moment be led to believe that they are acting with the best interests of U.S. and Ukraine's security in mind—especially because that is what they insist they are doing!
Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.
Former leading FBI agent Peter Strzok texted his mistress in May 2017, regarding the case against Donald Trump, that his "gut sense" was that "there's no big there there"—meaning that there was nothing behind the charges of collusion with Russia. Today, it is equally clear that in the Pelosi-Schiff impeachment investigation over Ukraine, once again, "there's no big there there."
The vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on October 31, to authorize guidelines for the next phase of a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, means that the 2020 presidential election will be shaped by a dynamic between two competing inquiries: the current fabricated impeachment drive to remove the President, over a fake narrative of a phone call to Ukraine's President, versus the criminal inquiry into the origins of Russiagate, under the direction of Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham. The 232-196 vote to proceed to the next phase of impeachment was, with three exceptions, on strict party lines, with all but two Democrats voting for it, while one anti-Trump independent, Rep. Amash, voted with the Democrats.
