SOMETHING FOUL

Democrats: DANGEROUS TO THE REPUBLIC

 

By Justin O. Smith

Something foul has gripped the Democratic Party, and under Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s weak leadership, and prodded on by the despicable fraud and liar known as Representative Adam Schiff, the Democratic Party is weaponizing the process for impeaching a sitting U.S. president, despite the fact that President Donald J. Trump, love him or hate him, has not committed any high crime or misdemeanor. Their unhinged zeal to avenge the 2016 loss and damage Pres. Trump before the 2020 election has them snorting too much gas from imaginary smoking guns fired by people with an agenda, and in their non-linear manner of thinking, they continue their Marxist assault on the Republic, through their own lawless and criminal behavior and a kangaroo court and inquisition.

 

On October 31st, the House Democrats held a vote on a resolution to proceed with an impeachment inquiry, which passed with a vote of 232-196. Two Democrats, Jeff Van Drew (NJ) and Collin Peterson (Minn.) voted against the move, and one time Republican turned Independent, Justin Amash (Mich.) voted in favor of the inquiry.

 

This same day at 10:35 AM, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Minority Leader in the House, tweeted: 100% of Republicans just voted AGAINST this sham impeachment. Two Democrats joined us. Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Schiff have both insisted that impeachment should be bipartisan. The only bipartisan vote today was AGAINST impeachment.”

 

Representative Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the Intelligence Committee, suggested the Democrats had turned into “a cult”, angrily adding: “We now have a full-fledged impeachment committee in the basement of the Capitol. Think about that, America.”

 

Prior to the vote, Democrats took their proceedings into the basement of the Capitol and conducted closed door hearings for weeks, overseen by the Intelligence Committee, as a justification for their secrecy, and controlled by Adam Schiff in a Soviet style process, when such hearings on impeachment have always been conducted in the Judiciary Committee in the past. Shifty Schiff limited Republican access to witnesses and details discussed and gave Democrats unfettered access to all the proceedings, and he has ignored due process by blocking President Trump’s counsel, creating a substandard process that is dangerous to the presidency and the future of the United States Republic.

 

Under this new resolution, the Democrats are still cutting the President’s counsel out of the hearings in unprecedented fashion and violating the due process that is his right. The President won’t even be able to question any witnesses until the process has long been underway, and, although Republicans can request witness testimony, the Democrats have voted themselves the option of refusing those requests.

 

Much of the Democrats’ supposed evidence of wrongdoing centers on allegations made by Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council staffer, and Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst. Both men have reason to oppose President Trump, but not to attack him in such a vicious manner as championing an impeachment process that wreaks of treason and a continued attempt to unseat a duly elected President of the United States.

 

[Blog Editor: On Vindman despite valor in battle:

 

 

 

 

 

When looking at Vindman valor there is something in historical context to look at. Benedict Arnold was one of George Washington’s best generals in the Revolutionary War – until he wasn’t.]

 

Paul Sperry, investigative journalist, notes that Ciaramella is an Obama holdover and a registered Democrat, who has previously worked with Vice-President Joe Biden and CIA Director John Brennan, who played a key role in the long-running soft coup against President Trump. Ciaramella was also removed from his National Security Council posting at the White House in the middle of 2017, due to his breach of the chain of command and numerous anti-Trump leaks to the media. He is also supposedly the “whistle blower”, although Sperry’s account still remains unconfirmed at this point; however, Ciaramella’s name does seem to be on everyone’s lips in D.C. at the moment.

 

[Blog Editor: On Eric Ciaramella’s credibility as any kind of witness against President Trump:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Any questions? Dems Lie! The Dems are more concerned about transforming the Republic away from Founding Principles than preserving the Republic. AND Eric Ciaramella is ONLY one example of Dem-Marxist transformationism]

 

In a move the mainstream media saw as an attempt to out the whistle blower, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX) recently asked a witness about Eric Ciaramella. Later, speaking to a Dallas radio station, Gohmert stated: “A lot of us in Washington know who it is. He’s a very staunch Democrat … a point person on Ukraine, during the time when Ukraine was its most corrupt, and he didn’t blow any whistles on their corruption.”

 

Lt Colonel Vindman was born in Ukraine, and although commendable, receiving a Purple Heart for being wounded in combat, as he was, doesn’t make him a hero whose every word must be taken as the Gospel. It only means he didn’t shirk his duty and he served honorably, as have so many millions of Americans.

 

He had a policy difference with President Trump regarding the country of his birth, and despite all the Democrats’ cries of “the Constitution, the Constitution”, Vindman could care less about any alleged violation of the Constitution by Pres. Trump. The gravamen of his complaint focused on the possibility that $380 million was going to be withheld from Ukraine, if the investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden’s Burisma dealings was pressed, alienating D.C. Democrats from the policy of using Ukraine as a tool against Putin and Russia. Essentially, this is a case of a Ukrainian born analyst butting into U.S. policy to ensure U.S. foreign aid continues flowing into Ukraine without objection.

 

After Schiff announced that the whistle blower might not even testify in a closed session, Republicans noted his motives cannot be properly assessed by the public, if he remains hidden. And Rep. Jim Jordan, head of the House Oversight Committee stated: “It’s tough to determine someone’s credibility if you can’t put them under oath and ask them questions.”

 

A former top National Security Council official, Tim Morrison, was on that call between President Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine on July 25th, and Morrison states: “I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed.”

 

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters on October 30th, the following: “I heard the President very clearly on that call talking about making sure that corruption — whether that corruption took place in the 2016 election, whether that corruption was continuing to take place, that the monies that were being provided would be used appropriately. It was very consistent with what I’d understood President Trump and our administration to be doing all along.”

 

Aid to Ukraine was not withheld and most of the criticism is political opportunism from Democrats, who cared little about Ukraine, until Hillary lost the Big Brass Ring and the ticket to the White House. Trump’s only sin was not requesting anti-corruption assistance through proper channels, because Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma Holdings, while Ol’ Joe was Vice-President of the United States, is a legitimate priority for U.S. and Ukrainian anti-corruption investigations. The Biden’s activities shouldn’t be swept under the rug due to the embarrassment or criminal charges for bribery it may bring some people.

 

President Trump blurred the line between U.S. national interests and his own personal and political interests a little, but even taking the worst-case scenario on Ukraine — a quid pro quo exchange of foreign aid for political favor — political sin or not, it certainly doesn’t arise to the level of a crime or an impeachable offense.

 

Any normal decent American fully understands that this is an UGLY and DANGEROUS gambit to undo the 2016 election and throw the 2020 election into turmoil, due to the Democratic Party’s realization that they will not be able to beat President Trump in a FAIR ELECTION PROCESS.

 

Steaming ahead like an out-of-control train, the Democrats are ignoring the common law definition and the Founders’ understanding of the limited and technical meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors” centered around abuse of power and grave breaches of trust and the Founders’ rejection of “maladministration”. They are attempting to impeach the president, despite the absence of impeachable offenses, and they are trying to neutralize and destroy President Trump, through a list of alleged impeachable offenses that they change each time one fails to produce the desired results: In the process, they are seeking to exercise control over the president that is not authorized in the Constitution and strictly forbidden by the Framers of the Constitution, since in the absence of any real and specified criminal conduct, the only legitimate remedy for a non-impeachable president lies with the voters, not Congress.

Obama, Hillary, et al – Nefarious Intentions


John R. Houk

© July 10, 2015

Remember Lois Lerner, the persecutor of Tea Party organizations and Conservative if they opposed the Obama agenda? Katie Pavlich gleaned some info from Judicial Watch that demonstrates that Lerner (as in the IRS) and the Department of Justice (as in – at the time – Obama’s buddy and confidante Attorney General Eric Holder) actually conspired to take out criminal action against any organization opposed to Barack Hussein Obama.

If you are a true American and purport to be a Democratic Party supporter, here is a good reason to at least write your Senator and District Representative to urge prosecution for these kinds of political dirty tricks. These kind of antics definitely the qualifications for Impeachment under the categories of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Trust me, if you the Constitution, what qualifies as an impeachable Misdemeanor is quite broad under the Original Intent of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution.

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.ARTICLE II, SECTION 4 (Standards for Impeachment; The Heritage Guide to The Constitution)

From the Wall Street Journal:

On one end of the debate, Roger Sherman believed that a president should be removed “at [the] pleasure” of Congress. Likewise, George Mason offered the standard of “maladministration.” At the other end of the debate, Charles Pinckney suggested that a president should not be subject to impeachment for any offense. Other delegates used vague language that only fuels the modern debate as to their true intentions. James Madison objected to a standard of “maladministration” as too ambiguous but he also stated that impeachment was a necessary precaution against “the incapacity, negligence or perfidy of the chief Magistrate.” For his part, Alexander Hamilton referred to impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, for the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

Franklin viewed impeachment as a process by which public concerns over presidential misconduct could be resolved and the legitimacy of a presidency restored. He noted that there are times when a president’s conduct is viewed as “obnoxious” and demands a process of public review and decision. The impeachment process, he concluded, is “the best way . . . to provide in the Constitution for the regular punishment of the Executive when his misconduct should deserve it, and for his honorable acquittal when he should be unjustly accused.” (High Crimes and Misdemeanors, According to the Framers; Jonathan Turley; WSJ; Updated 11/9/98 12:01 a.m. ET)

As a Conservative my sense is Obama and many of the cohorts of his Administration probably have treasonous acts that may never be proven as a high crime. However, maladministration and malicious acts are very provable. The only hindrance are the Democrats of the House – in impeachment proceedings – and in the Senate doing their due diligence for their constituents and the Constitution – in convicting for malicious acts that may fall more under Misdemeanors than High Crimes.

The focus of this post is Hillary Clinton – the current favorite to win the Dem Party nomination for POTUS, but President Barack Hussein Obama is certainly has had unclean hands from his 2008 election campaign through to the present. His campaign was full of image lies portraying to Americans he was the epitome of hope and change. The reality was and still is a connection to Marxist idealism (HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) and the racism involve with Black Liberation Theology (HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) . This reality includes a host of Marxist mentors and admirations on the Leftist side and a load of hate-Whitey BLT supremacists.

Impeach the Leftist cronies, Prosecute them or both.

New Documents Show Extensive Collaboration Between IRS, DOJ to Criminally Prosecute Conservative Groups

By Katie Pavlich

July 07, 2015

Townhall.com

Last year emails revealed former IRS official Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice Criminal Division about criminally prosecuting conservative tea party groups for pursuing political activity (opposed to President Obama’s agenda) by “posing” as non-profit organizations.

Now, new documents obtained by government watchdog Judicial Watch through two different Freedom of Information Act lawsuits show extensive collaboration between the IRS and DOJ (and subsequently the FBI) to go after conservative groups with criminal charges. The IRS likely violated federal law by illegally sharing 1.25 million pages of taxpayer information with DOJ, which were contained on nearly two dozen FBI backup tapes. Further, information shows DOJ wanted IRS officials who were scheduled to testify in front of Congress about the targeting scandal to turn over planned remarks to them first before delivering on Capitol Hill. From JW:

Judicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.

The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”

But the IRS wasn’t simply sending the DOJ information, Lerner herself was meeting with DOJ officials to discuss pursuing criminal charges.

On October 8, 2010, Lois Lerner, Joe Urban [IRS Technical Advisor, TEGE], Judy Kindell [top aide to Lerner], Justin Lowe [Technical Advisor to the Commissioner of Tax-Exempt and Government Entities], and Siri Buller met with the section chief and other attorneys from the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section, and one representative from the FBI, to discuss recent attention to the political activity of exempt organizations.

The section’s attorneys expressed concern that certain section 501(c) organizations are actually political committees “posing” as if they are not subject to FEC law, and therefore may be subject to criminal liability. The attorneys mentioned several possible theories to bring criminal charges under FEC law

Keep in mind Lerner previously and essentially stated in an email that at least one conservative group needed to be made a public example with prosecution.

“One IRS prosecution would make an impact and they wouldn’t feel so comfortable doing the stuff,” Lerner said in a 2013 email.

The goal was to stop the flow of other conservative non-profits, opposed to President Obama’s agenda, from applying for tax exempt status and therefore becoming more effective.

“These new documents show that the Obama IRS scandal is also an Obama DOJ and FBI scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “The FBI and Justice Department worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS to concoct some reason to put President Obama’s opponents in jail before his reelection. And this abuse resulted in the FBI’s illegally obtaining confidential taxpayer information. How can the Justice Department and FBI investigate the very scandal in which they are implicated?”

It’s no wonder Lerner’s hard drive magically “crashed,” “losing” thousands of emails sent and received during the time period when she was meeting with DOJ to pursue prosecution of American citizens exercising their constitutional right to free speech.
