    All Hail, Conrad Black, the old, desiccated, Montreal, less fat version of me in polemics ...

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/05/democrats-impeachment-partys-over/

    [​IMG]
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D, N.Y.) are joined
    by other Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., May 22, 2019. (Jonathan Ernst/Reuters)

    "They now must choose between ignominiously dropping their impeachment effort and embarrassingly pursuing it."

    If the Democrats are really tempted by impeachment, bring it on. Since the day after the 2016 election they have been threatening this, placing their chips on the Russian-collusion fantasy and then on the phantasmagoric charade of obstruction of justice. The attorney general accurately gave the ingredients of the offense of obstruction of justice in his four-page summary of the Mueller report: a corrupt act for corrupt purposes in contemplation of a legal proceeding. The attorney general, William Barr, the then deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, and the Justice Department counsel concurred that none of the elements was present in the conduct of the president as recounted by Mueller. The dream died, except in the febrile imagination of the Democrats, who launched an unfounded attack on the attorney general’s integrity. Everyone knows that the prospects of a successful move to impeach and remove the president from office by two thirds of the Senate finding that he has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, as the Constitution requires, are less than zero.

    The turn of the tables has been exquisite and complete. The idea that anyone ever nominated by a serious American political party would collude with a foreign power to rig a presidential election is insane. No one, not even a scoundrel such as Aaron Burr or a third-party naif such as Henry Wallace, would have dreamt of such a thing. But in their desperation and denial after the unimaginable victory of someone pledged to clean out the entire political class that has ruled America since the Reagan years, the Democrats paid $10 million for a false dossier on Trump, corrupted and politicized the intelligence services and the FBI, set up an echo chamber of self-verification with the national media Trump had already reviled as dishonest, and provoked the creation of a special counsel to look into Trump–Russian collusion. The Republican congressional leaders sat on their hands to see if the leader none of them had supported would be impeached, and the Democrats and their scripted media choristers smugly carped and waited like noisy crocodiles for their victim to be reduced to inert helplessness. Guess what.

    Mueller did his best, with a character assassination of the president from selected Star Chamber testimony of no legal relevance and an attempt to pull the pin on a damp grenade by citing a series of legally innocuous facts and declaring an inability to exonerate for obstruction, though collusion with Russia was hopeless. Mueller knew that that was not his brief — no one had asked him to do anything except state whether or not there was valid reason to impeach the president. His spurious and cowardly recitation of legal fineries that fulfill none of the requirements for obstruction combined with a sorrowful statement of inability to exonerate on that charge is, in fact, an exoneration. It was the best Mueller, a slab-faced Trump-hater who assembled a famished wolf-pack of pathological Trump-haters as his investigative team, could do: He failed the Democratic lynch mob because he couldn’t find any evidence, and he failed the country in not producing a fully honest and impartial report. The Democrats are left at a crossroads: keep swinging like punch-drunk prizefighters lashing out when they hear the bell of a passing streetcar, or abandon the impeachment ship while there is still room in the lifeboats.

    The president has won his spurs with his own party. While they waited as mute and spineless spectators, he wrestled the Russian-collusion leopard off his back and slew it. He is right to stonewall the Democratic House committees on their much-touted blizzard of subpoenas. The porcine judiciary chairman, Jerry Nadler, a virulent enemy of Trump for 30 years, splutters with righteousness, but he has no legal right nor the decisive political support to start all over again after Mueller has come up empty-handed. President Truman determined in reference to the House Un-American Affairs Committee, and President Eisenhower stated in reference to the various Joseph R. McCarthy hearings, that they would not tolerate any federal executive-branch employee’s being subpoenaed about any advice they gave the president, that they would accept and honor no such subpoenas, and that anyone who responded to such subpoenas would be fired at once. This was established pre-Watergate practice and is sound law. No one should imagine that Nadler is more virtuous than McCarthy or the other red-baiters.

    Finally, the nation is recovering from the Watergate assassination. Richard Nixon opposed Truman’s position but loyally supported Eisenhower when he served him as vice president, in the same position Truman had taken, and he was instrumental in the censure of McCarthy. He assumed when he was president that he could define executive discretion as Truman and Eisenhower had. He completely mishandled the Watergate investigation. He forgot that any District of Columbia jury was bound to convict Republicans of anything, forgot the dangers of the plea-bargain system as it had evolved, and forgot that the Senate could ignore lawyer–client privilege in the case of a useful turncoat such as John Dean (who still inflicts his contemptible opinions on the country at the behest of the Trump-hating media). There is still thoroughly insufficient evidence to establish that Nixon participated in the spontaneous semi-conspiracy that developed in Nixon’s entourage to obstruct justice, and then the perjury of a number of his subordinates in the administration and in the Republican organization.

    Nixon’s assailants have lived ever since off his confusion over the impeachment threat, which had never been seriously considered in respect of a president since the failure to remove Andrew Johnson in 1868. (This explains the frequent surfacing on our television screens, like a reptilian monster of the deep, of Carl Bernstein peddling his nonsense about a “constitutional crisis” arising from the president’s alleged mental incapacity.) Nixon recognized too late what he had allowed to happen; impeachment was unthinkable, and as a fierce American patriot he was ashamed of embarrassing the presidency and determined to spare the country a Senate trial, and therefore withdrew. Unfortunately, as some of us foresaw, the process temporarily resulted in an addiction to impeachment by both parties as a destructive trick to emasculate a president, a perverted mutation of a parliamentary non-confidence motion.

    The response of the executive branch to this threat has evolved and become more resourceful, like immunity to an affliction after recurrences of it. Where President Nixon spared the country the agony after it had made probably terminal inroads, President Reagan in the Iran-Contra affair, a minor matter involving a popular president near the end of his term, with plausible deniability, just said “I don’t recall,” and it passed. President Clinton, as Whitewater was transmogrified into the blue dress and likely perjury to a grand jury, fought it out, and his opponents got a 50–50 split on one count, but did not come close to removal. Now, finally, comes a president armed with a decisive legal and political advantage who is happy to meet his accusers and massacre them if they charge. If Speaker Pelosi can’t restrain the far-left imbeciles from voting impeachment, they will not even hold the Democrats in the Senate. There is no evidence to convict this president of anything, and the country will be outraged.

    times have changed
    and imo, the public knows too much
    too many bleeding heart hypocrites wanting to vilify brave men and women
    most citizens do not need to know what's going on behind the scenes
    only reason nixon got caught was because his "plumbers" were reckless and stupid
    reagan otoh knew how to sidestep controversy and roll with the punches

    btw, is it an abuse of power if it improves and/or strengthens the situation, relations, etc?

    I can imagine Trump colluding in this way.
    When he goes and meets Putin for the first time in front of cameras he leans in covers his mouth and tells Putin that he will kick his ass if he crosses the US but that it is best for both leaders to smile and look chummy so the media reports that there is collusion and the traitors of both nations take the bait so they can be fished out later after the truth comes out.

    Why do I always hear about Charlottesville as evidence for Trump being racist? It's been repeated over and over again by the mainstream media, dems, celebs, and educators that he refused to condemn the white nationalists. The video clearly shows that is untrue.

    He condemned them multiple times, and wanted to make sure that everyone knew there were good people on both sides who were there to peacefully participate or protest. He wanted to make sure those people were not lumped in with those who took the actions that they did.

    I take issue with plenty of what Trump says, but he was so clearly on the money in this case.

    Because the media uses coded language and eventually compels everyone to follow along.
    That way they can prosecute you for violating the code.
    Its a retarded code.
    Like in NY bus drivers are refusing to let ultra orthodox Jews into their bus and yelling "MEASLES" to them before shutting the door.
    The media picks that up as people being anti-semitic to those Jews.
    Except most in the NY Jewish community consider those ultra orthodox Jews as anti-semitic because they do not believe in material Zionism but state the the Torah speaks of spiritual Zionism that can only be brought forth by the Messiah.
    So the people we generally call Jews believe that another group of Jews who are more conservative than them are anti-semites.
    This group of 'anti semites' is being treated weirdly in NY as being dirty and backwards because they don't follow Mayor DiBlasios scare tactics. It is emboldening racists who look at the black suits and sidelocks and find that they have a free pass to feel a righteous indignation against these Jews because its sort of ok to shit on them. These orthodox Jews claim that folks are being anti-semitic towards them but the Jewish community at large says that its not anti-semitism to deny them entry into their restaurants and put large red signs in Hebrew that say that Jews that don't follow the law wont be allowed in.
    They law allows the police to check your records if you have a private Jewish school. They can come in and take your computers to check if you have all of the students vaccination records. If they don't have proof that all the the kids were vaccinated before admission the school gets shut down.

    All these people are Jews and they are being fucked with by a system represented by a man who is by his own admission "spiritual but not religious." Just so we are not mincing words... that is the same type of bullshit the Nazis believed in. Spiritualism without God which ends up being that you are your own God. Sounds nice and all except that this is the type of shit that leads people to want to be God over others. Because since everyone is a god and there are many gods then there is sure to be a hierarchy of gods and i am holier than thou.

    Trump used language that the media has deemed to be the similar to saying that there are good people on both sides of the Israel/Palestine conflict.
    You can't do that when you are using victim politics.
    Victim politics is the politics of demons.
    You have free will to choose. Of course if you choose the demonized side the demonizers will label you a demon.
    But the demonizer is the demon.
    Social Justice/Liberation Theology is the political doctrine behind victim politics.
    Straight from the enemy.
    Out of the mouth of Marx.
    Black hat Eastern Europe devil worship disguised as good news by communist intelligence officers frocked in sheep's clothing on their way to the west.

    Folks that tell you that you need to say things in a politically correct way are demon worshippers and they are just doing their missionary work.

    This. Controlling the language in which the argument is framed is how you win the argument before it even starts.

    Alyssa Milano called Jon Voight an "F-lister trying to stay relevant."

    I really don't care what Jon Voight has to say, but does she realize that she is describing herself...not Voight?

    Voight is an Oscar winner (which matters by her criteria, not mine) and has been consistently cast in films for 40 years.

    Alyssa Milano was on a shitty sitcom 30 years ago, starred in a low rated WB drama 15 years ago, and worked in softcore porn.

    Interesting.

    Now, if she was trying to make hypocrites of conservatives who tell actors to shut up, I'll give her some credit.

    Robert Mueller is an interesting fellow.
    He already said last month that Barr's bottom line conclusion summary featured no inaccuracies.
    What was the point of his press conference earlier today? Seems contradictory

    If I had a text from Hillary with the severed balls in her mouth of every man who wronged her, I'd hedge my bet a bit, too.
