Post Re: The Coup against Donald Trump
The impeachment coup is now hearing "evidence" against Trump. But there isn't any evidence.

Liberal Alan Dershowitz says the impeachment is unconstitutional.

It Would Be Unconstitutional for Trump to be Impeached on Current Record
thegatewaypundit.com/2019/12/it-would-b ... ershowitz/

Dershowitz said, "The constitution sets out four criteria for impeaching a President; treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Unless one of those criteria is met, Congress does not have the authority to impeach, and if they do, their impeachment would be void.”

So, Trump will be able to stop the impeachment with a court filing, since none of the criteria are met.

Several Dems have said that impeachment is the only way to stop Trump from being reelected.

Rep. Al Green: ‘If We Don’t Impeach This President, He Will Get Re-Elected'

America's had 3 impeachments in 240+ years, and they were for cited crimes. And now we have the Dems not being able to cite a crime but insisting on an impeachment anyway, for political gain. What they are doing is unforgivable. They are working against the interests of America.

Post Re: The Coup against Donald Trump
In 1867, just before Andrew Johnson's impeachment, a writer named C.M. Ellis had this to say about the Constitution's impeachment clause:
Quote:
The terms “high crimes and misdemeanors,” in their natural sense, embrace a very large field of actions. They are broad enough to cover all criminal misconduct of the President, — all acts of commission or omission forbidden by the Constitution and the laws. To the word “misdemeanor,” indeed, is naturally attached a yet broader signification, which would embrace personal character and behavior as well as the proprieties of official conduct. Nor was, nor is, there any just reason why it should be restricted in this direction; for, in establishing a permanent national government, to insure purity and dignity, to secure the confidence of its own people and command the respect of foreign powers, it is not unfit that civil officers, and most especially the highest of all, the head of the people, should be answerable for personal demeanor.

He had much else to say in the Atlantic article. It has been the clear understanding since at least Ellis's time that a crime need not be the cause of the president's removal.
https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/ar ... ed/548144/
But we seem not to have to worry about such a dispute in Trump's case, anyway. How does Dershowitz manage to overlook federal statute? From my non-expert perspective, the statute clearly applies, so what would be the reasoning?
Quote:
52 USC §30121. Contributions and donations by foreign nationals
(a) Prohibition
It shall be unlawful for-

(1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make-
(A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
(B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
(C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or
(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

Post Re: The Coup against Donald Trump
It's pretty clear now why the Democrats are pushing ahead with their empty impeachment; they want to taint the 2020 election.

Schiff Confirms Impeachment of Trump is All About 2020
“The President’s misconduct goes to the heart of whether we can conduct a free and fair election in 2020.”
legalinsurrection.com/2019/12/schiff-co ... %B7tion%29

Schiff said they can't let Trump cheat "one more time." It wasn't Trump who cheated in 2016, it was Clinton. The Ukrainians helped her cheat. That's what Trump's lawyer, Giulianni, has been gathering evidence about on his recent trips to the Ukraine.

Rudy Giuliani Can Barely Contain Himself Over His Ukraine Findings
Upon his return to New York on Saturday, Giuliani says he took a call from President Trump while his plane was still taxiing down the runway, according to the Wall Street Journal. ... "What did you get?" Trump asked. "More than you can imagine," answered the former New York mayor who gained notoriety in the 1980s for taking down the mob as a then-federal prosecutor. ... According to the 77-year-old Giuliani, Trump instructed him to brief Attorney General William Barr and GOP lawmakers on his findings. Soon after, the president then told reporters at the White House, "I hear he has found plenty."
zerohedge.com/political/rudy-giuliani-c ... e-findings

And then the Inspector General's report into FISA abuses came out last week. The FISA court issued illegal warrants against candidate Trump. Obama knew about it in real time, which makes his crime the greatest ever committed by a US president. The IG report was narrow in the scope of its investigation and the media said it didn't amount to much, but our Attorney General said it amounted to plenty.

Attorney General Barr Promptly Issues A Scathing Response To The IG Report: “[Horowitz’s] Report Makes Clear The FBI Launched An Intrusive Investigation Of [Trump’s] Campaign On The Thinnest Of Suspicions”
gellerreport.com/2019/12/attorney-gener ... port.html/

Obama's former atty gen Eric Holder is freaking out over the FISA business. I guess his ass is on the line somehow. The next report on Obama's Russiagate scheme will come from John Durham, and Holder is asking Durham to rebel against his boss William Barr. The Washington establishment is VERY nervous about what Durham will reveal.

Eric Holder Sends Warning to John Durham, Says William Barr ‘Unfit’ to be Attorney General, in WaPo Op-Ed
unitedpatriotnews.com/politics/eric-hol ... apo-op-ed/

At any rate, the vote for or against impeachment will be this week. They would have done it Friday but said they didn't have a good TV time slot. They might vote to impeach, or they might just censure. I hope they impeach so we get to see Hunter Biden on the stand in the Senate trial. One of Biden's stripper girlfriends is suing him for child support.

Deadbeat Dad Hunter Biden Blows Off Court Hearing Over Child Support As His Lawyer Abruptly Quits!
statedepartmentwatch.org/2019/12/03/dea ... tly-quits/

What else? Oh, Obama's in the news:

Obama Caught At Soros Home Meddling In Trump’s Re-Election, Gets Reality Check
Barack Obama is attending a meeting held at the home of Alex Soros, the son of leftwing billionaire George Soros. Reports say the former president is meddling in the 2020 election, and this meeting is targeting President Donald Trump’s re-election. Also attending are other Democrat heavy-weights like Eric Holder....
madworldnews.com/obama-soros-home-trump ... -election/

It looks as if the Soros people plan to use Obama and their other tools to work up some kind of protest against Trump if he gets re-elected. Probably race riots and so on, the kind of crap that we had for 8 years under Bathhouse Barry.

Post Re: The Coup against Donald Trump
The Democrats in the House of Reps said it was urgent to impeach Trump, that he was a danger to the nation and so on. And now they're stalling the next step in the process. If he's such a danger, why the delay?

It's possible that the Trump impeachment was just step one. Now they'll go after vice-president Pence, while Trump waits in limbo.

If both Trump and Pence stand impeached, then perhaps the next in line for the presidency (arch-traitor Nancy Pelosi) will declare a crisis and elevate herself.

Keep your powder dry: Fanatical Democrats have a plan to remove Trump and install PELOSI as President within WEEKS

I hope they have a trial soon, and I hope the Republicans in the Senate don't do anything to speed it along. Let all the facts about Biden come out. Let Russiagate be explored. Obama knew about the illegal spying on Trump from the beginning--the biggest crime ever committed by a sitting president. And Obama and Biden can still be impeached. That's what I want to see. Obama's crime is so great that it rises to the level of treason, and I want to hear his lawyers say that he CAN'T be charged with treason against the US, because he's not a citizen. Maybe this is why Trump has been impeached, so that the US govt will be thrown into disarray as it tries to roll back 8 years of non-binding actions carried out by Barry Soetoro (Obama's legal name).

A couple of weeks now since Giuliani returned from his fact-finding mission. When will we be seeing the astounding results of the trip? We're waiting.

Trump might regret letting Rudy work for him for free. That seems to put Trump in debt to the former NY mayor, making it more difficult for Trump to consider firing him. Reportedly, Trump may also have a problem in not having declared the value of the free legal work in his yearly financial statement.

How each member of the House voted on impeachment
The votes to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress fell almost exactly along party lines. Two Democrats voted with Republicans. One of them, New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew, is poised to leave the Democratic Party.... No Republicans supported impeachment...
cnn.com/interactive/2019/12/politics/ho ... ment-vote/

Even CNN (Clinton News Network or Commie News Network, take your pick) can't put a positive spin on the impeachment vote. It was the most nakedly partisan vote imaginable. It was so reprehensible to one Democrat that he left the party in disgust. An utter, unmitigated PR failure. It is as if the Democrats are DETERMINED to destroy their party. Support for Trump the Abused is rising, and the Dems have no challenger to take him on in the upcoming election.

The impeachment trial will most likely be over and done with two weeks after it starts, but the Dems' problems won't end there.

HUGE: Lindsey Graham Promises to Call in EVERY PERSON Who Signed Bogus Carter Page FISA Warrants …Comey, McCabe, Yates, Rosenstein… (VIDEO)
stationgossip.com/2019/12/huge-lindsey- ... in_23.html

So, after the impeachment, the Senate will take up the FISA business. They can proceed now that they have the Inspector General's report. And given enough time, the wheels of justice will grind the bones of the Democrats' power structure into dust. It is inevitable. The Dems committed crimes on an unprecedentedly massive scale, thinking they would never be held accountable by President Hillary, but the hour of reckoning is approaching.

Or not. It could be that it's all a show, a shadow play put on by the Good Ol Boys for us peons. It makes me think of professional rasslin', the way the two sides pose and blow at each other. And Trump is the king of showmanship.

Kayfabe. That's a term that comes to mind sometimes when I'm watching Trump. It's a wrestling term:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kayfabe

Interesting article. It talks about wrestling super-promoter Vince McMahon, who is a known associate of Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, as we're fed the the sturm und drang of the impeachment, the government goes on quietly about its business of passing a 1.3 trillion dollar budget, and reauthorizing the heinous USA PATRIOT Act, and the Federal Reserve pumps a 3 trillion life-support dollars into Wall Street.

Post Re: The Coup against Donald Trump
A fascinating interview with Dr. Steve Pieczenik. Among other things he discusses the coup against Trump:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHpsoGxwn5o

Pieczenik worked for decades as a CIA psychiatrist. I don't trust spooks or shrinks, but to hear him tell it, he spent his career saving Christians where he could. Western society is superior to others because of the Judeo-Christian belief system, he says, and we need to do what we can to preserve it. I agree. The introductory stuff ends at about 7:45 and the commercials have been trimmed. I posted a youtube link, which will no doubt be taken down, so I'll add a link straight to Alex Jones' Banned.video website.

https://banned.video/watch?id=5e014e7a1e2e2900167644b5

Tom Clancy's character Jack Ryan was based on Pieczenik.
