Trump’s Second Impeachment Won’t End the DC Swamp’s Delirium Towards Him

Delirium tremens

Delirium tremens is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol.  Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating.

The shocking election of Donald Trump to the presidency in 2016 threw the DC Swamp into a state of political delirium. The threat Trump presented of forcing members in good standing of the DC UniParty to have to face withdrawal from their narcotic of ill-gotten financial gains via the Swamp’s broad variety of influence peddling schemes immediately threw every Swamp rat and snake and skunk into some or all of the symptoms described above.

Already frightened by his very presence as a contender for the Republican Party’s nomination that year, the Swamp began its efforts to take him out at the Obama FBI and DOJ with the whole illegal Crossfire Hurricane spying on his campaign. Such efforts increased exponentially upon his election, and continued to be mounted across the entirety of his presidency. Not a day went by without some facet of the never-ending coup d’etat being active, and it continued yesterday with a second sham impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, a vote that happened without the holding of a single hearing on the matter.

Some are saying this morning that that sham vote without a second of due process will be the end of it. They are wrong.

Well, at least he’s consistent. – Tom Cotton likely damaged his political future last week through his refusal to oppose the clearly fraudulent electoral vote that had been submitted to congress by the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona. The Senator from Arkansas said at the time that he believed his duty to uphold the constitution prevent his taking that step, an argument that is at best highly questionable.

On Wednesday, Cotton made the same argument in explaining his opposition to the Senate taking up yet another impeachment trial against President Donald Trump, whose term has just 6 days remaining. “Last week, I opposed the effort to reject certified electoral votes for the same reason — fidelity to the Constitution — I now oppose impeachment proceedings against a former president,” Cotton said.

In a statement released late Wednesday, Cotton said that the Senate simply lacks the constitutional authority to take up such a trial once the President has left office, and that its rules prevent it from even starting a trial, much less finishing one, before his term ends on January 20.

From a story at The Hill:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), an influential conservative and possible contender for the White House in 2024, says the Senate lacks constitutional authority to hold an impeachment trial for President Trump once he leaves office.

“The Senate lacks constitutional authority to conduct impeachment proceedings against a former president. The Founders designed the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office — not an inquest against private citizens,” Cotton said in a statement Wednesday evening.

Cotton’s rationale for not voting to convict Trump once he leaves office will likely become political cover for other GOP senators to vote against a House-passed article of impeachment, even if they think Trump might have committed impeachable offenses.

Cotton in his statement Wednesday evening also argued that the Senate would not be able to conclude a trial of Trump in the next six days.

“The House has passed an article of impeachment against the president, but the Senate under its rules and precedents cannot start and conclude a fair trial before the president leaves office next week,” he said.

The House voted 232 to 197 Wednesday to impeach Trump a second time, with 10 Republican lawmakers voting in favor of the article, which charged Trump with inciting insurrection after a pro-Trump mob overtook the U.S. Capitol last week.

[End]

Cotton’s argument here is of course correct, but ignores the reality that this sham impeachment effort is not about removing Trump from office, but about preventing him from ever holding the office again in the future. So, while current Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will delay his way out of having to take this one up, we should expect new Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to do so when he assumes that job thanks to the fraudulent election on January 20.

As Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan pointed out during his floor speech yesterday, the Democrat/media/Big Tech/UniParty joint effort to remove Trump from office started just 19 minutes into his term on January 20, 2017, and it has never relented since:

“19 minutes, 19 minutes, four years ago on inauguration day, January 20th, 2017, 19 minutes into President Trump’s administration at 12:19 PM, the Washington Post headline was, ‘Campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.'” Jordan said.  “And now with just one week left, they’re still trying. In seven days, there will be a peaceful transfer of power, just like there has been every other time in our country, but Democrats are going to impeach President Trump, again.”

Understand this: Even after Trump leaves office, the effort to persecute him and destroy him will continue until he is either put away in prison or dead. Because the DC Swamp must make an example of him, as a warning to voters to never send anyone like him its way again. Trump threatened the very existence of everything the Swamp and its UniParty members in good standing have built over the last century, placing the entire house of cards in danger of tumbling down. Merely removing him from office was never going to be the end game. The end game is to completely destroy him and his family.

So if you’re thinking that this second impeachment scam will finally bring all the madness and delirium to a blessed end, you’re thinking about it all wrong. This is merely Act II of a theatrical tragedy that has several more acts to run.

That is all.

Oh gee whiz! Can we believe it might be true?

Sooner or later, the truth comes out.

A pox upon their house, their legacy and their spawn.

The American Empire is finished no matter who is on office now. Not enough patriots backed Trump incl few military generals. The impeachment was to stop Trump from declaring the insurrection act. It is over folks, enjoy the ride into agenda 2030 full speed. Depopulation, lockdowns, more bio weapons and cyber warfare by the Chinese. America is infiltrated w/ Marxists who will further take the country into dictatorship and a police state. Patriots are few in 2021. Churches, civic clubs and vets org. and their nat. hq. are complying with the globalist agenda, the 501c3’s have been change agents for decades. Not future for the younger and still working folks.

The Constitution speaks.
You’re close to being correct, but Senator Schumer, the likely new Majority Leader, would lack any authority to have the Senate take any action against Trump after 12:00 pm January 20, 2021.

Responses to two parts of the article:

“…we should expect new Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to [resume the impeachment trial – talking about beating a dead horse or spiking the football] do so when he assumes that job…”

In 2000, when the senate was tied (after Bushe’s ‘coattails’ lost five GOP senate seats) with VP Cheney being the 51-50 tiebreaker, the donkeys pissed and moaned until the elephants relented and gave the minority leader equality in the running of the senate. That became moot soon after in 2001 when another “Republican” (CINO) senator Jim Jeffords of Vermont switched parties and became a member of the jackass coalition just prior to 9-11. I would love to know what sweetheart deal he got to switch parties. Was it more or less than what was twice given to another corrupt senator from VT to shut him up and allow Walking Eagle and joe btfsplk to be anointed as the presidential nominee of the donkey party in 2016 and 2020?

Let’s just see how much: 1) mcconnell even asks for or demands such equality (assuming he even wants it – most certainly he does not), and 2) how much equality the schmuckster actually gives to mcconnell. 

I’m betting zilch as cryin’ chuck will probably pull what ‘the 0ne’ said to mclame during the sham “bipartisan” health-care hearing: John, I won, you lost, now be a good little swamper and go to the back of the bus. “Elections have consequences” – probably the only truth to ever come from ‘the 0ne’s’ mouth.

And,

“Because the DC Swamp must make an example of him [Trump], as a warning to voters to never send anyone like him this way again.”

Not only a warning or example to the voters who have now been rendered irrelevant, but, and most importantly, to any strong outsider individual who may entertain future thoughts about challenging the status quo of the DC schiffhole. Outsiders need not and had better not ever apply again. We – the swamp – made a rare strategic error when we let Trump gain traction in the GOP primaries and our media lackies gave too much airtime to Trump allowing him to get his (resonating) message out to the disaffected little folks, the smelly Walmart shoppers, and Walking Eagle despising voters. We felt he was a Perot who would talk a lot but fizzle out when put under the bright lights of a down and dirty campaign. We were wrong and we won’t ever allow that to happen again.

The donkeys only win when they run relative unknowns, empty suits, or now a total clod dullard.  Btfsplk was probably the most invisible and unaccomplished VP and senator in the history of the country (and that was when he was young and in his ‘prime’. Now, and for the foreseeable future, they just need their candidate to maintain body temperature and remain under the radar like roundheels was able to do in 2020 with her early exit from the 2020 primaries. They lose when they run a known candidate like Algore and Walking Eagle with a lot of baggage, and “win” with relatively unknown BS artists.

They will pursue Trump to the ends of the earth and the end of time; until he is in the grave. Prison won’t suffice; as long as he breathes he will be considered a threat to the swamp. May he be the boogey man that haunts their dreams and robs them of sleep every night of their lives.

I have said and will continue to say that Trump lives in their heads 24/7. They wake up in the morning hating him and go to bed doing the same. And most likely, their nightmares are of him as well.

Jay Whitcraft

If Chucky is stupid enough to do this, Team Trump should use the trial for the presentation of the evidence of Voter fraud. Let’s watch the MSM cut away from THAT coverage! If they try to say that it’s not relevant, he can explain that it is part of what happened on the 6th and needs to be looked at. If Chucky had a brain he would know better than to further piss off 75 million people. Jay

Silas

I will say again, that every time a Representative Or Senator gets a chance to speak it’s to point out the hypocrisy, the fraud, the censoring and the cancelling out of half of the citizens of this country.
