The Democrat-majority House of Representatives has impeached President Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, neither of which is grounds for impeachment according to the Constitution. The first charge is based on Trump’s pressuring the president of Ukraine to investigate the son of his political rival, Joe Biden. The second charge is based on the claim that Trump blocked subpoenas and, in some instances, refused to allow senior officials to testify before Congress [The irony of these charges is that Presidents of both parties have a long record of doing these things, which means that impeachment now will be based, not on Constitutional law or even on principle, but solely on party loyalty. From now on, it will be possible to Impeach any minority-party president whether Republican or Democrat. There goes one more of those precious checks and balances that are so essential to a free society, because the common man losses either way.] -GEG
The impeachment of President Trump is more about the future than it is about the present.
The present-day consequences aren’t trivial, to be sure. There will be a trial, which will no doubt deepen our national polarization. And henceforth, in the history books, Trump will go down as an impeached president — one of a precious few.
Or at least, a precious few for now. The count isn’t apt to stay small in coming decades.
There was only one impeachment, Andrew Johnson’s, in the first century of constitutional governance. There wasn’t another one for a century after that, with President Richard Nixon and Watergate. Knowing he would almost certainly be impeached in the House and convicted in the Senate, Nixon spared the nation by resigning.
It was another quarter-century until President Bill Clinton’s impeachment and acquittal by the Senate. That was 20 years ago. But it won’t be two decades until the next one. Bank on it.
Oxford has partnered with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca in order to produce billions of doses. That means that, even though the vaccine is of little value, the government will purchase the billion doses and force everyone to accept them.
Over 700 looters were arrested, but more than 400 were immediately released without bail. It appears that city and state leaders have ordered police to stand down to encourage as much violence and destruction as possible to eventually justify martial law, which is the end game for ending America as a free nation.
In cities around the US, pallets of bricks have been delivered to riot locations. There is no construction in these areas, so it is logical to conclude that they are being provided for rioters to break windows. This is further proof of a well funded organized operation. These are not mere “protesters”.
Calling for stronger police and/or military response is exactly what the enemies of America want. Rather than calling for martial law, why don’t commentators call for putting the organizers of these riots into prison NOW? Can’t people see that they are professionals, not protesters?
Leftist college professors take to the media and Twitter accounts to voice their opinions, mostly sympathetic to rioters. They are using social media to promote and justify violence. The presidents and trustees of these universities have not objected to their rhetoric of hatred and violence.
This raises the question of whether police will have the power to forcibly enter a home and remove a lover from another address. This COVID Theater would be hilarious if it didn’t tragically affect so many lives.
Her arrest came as 47 NYPD vehicles were set on fire and damaged in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Rioters also were attacking police. An estimated 33 police officers were injured in the city. De Blasio’s daughter’s arrest came as he was urging protesters to return to their homes.
Trump has ordered the Pentagon to prepare the US military to deploy domestically inside the US. As the violence escalates, people will welcome the military. Minnesota is using ‘contact tracing’ techniques to track rioters – and then everybody.
Every state has plans for contact tracing. In Washington state, where contact tracing is said to be voluntary, non-compliant individuals may be sent to prison and fined up to $2,000 per day for non-compliance.
The NYPD said that several officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face. Protesters shut down the street around police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

The roll out of extending abortion up to and even after birth is being pushed by Planned Parenthood, which receives $500-million in taxpayer funds per year. Only 25% of Americans who identify as being pro-choice believe that abortion should be available at any point in a pregnancy.
The Democrats are setting up a scam system that they are pushing to go national, following the California model of automatically registering everyone to vote when they get a driver’s license, and then adding to the corruption by allowing them to vote from home with their phone.
