Impeachment Tuesday: Have Right and Wrong “Departed?”

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

On the eve of Impeachment Tuesday in the Senate, I am acutely aware of how strong the positions of people on opposite sides of this historic event are. Both believe they are right and the other side is wrong.

When it comes to the really big truths in life, I’ve never been a fan of bet-hedging or the notion that “The truth is somewhere in the middle.” There are facts and there are what you think and feel about them. Some often confuse the two.  But with so much outright propaganda in politics today, how does one determine the facts?

The dilemma reminds me of the 2006 film, “The Departed” with Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg.

It’s a clever concept and an intricate story about a mob-connected man (Damon) who becomes a Boston cop to infiltrate the police, while an honest Boston cop with a shady past (DiCaprio) goes under cover to infiltrate the Irish mob.

It’s sort of a role reversal story but the main characters don’t know they are walking in each others’ shoes until later in the film.

When the two men finally come face to face and one captures the other, both beg a well-meaning cop to shoot the other because “He’s the bad guy.”  Since the cop doesn’t have enough information, he does the cautious thing by doing nothing.

The scene is a vivid portrayal of what happens when good is portrayed as evil and evil is portrayed as good. With enough confusion, the average citizen washes his hands of the entire situation and goes to a movie—-maybe even “The Departed” where they know it’s only a movie.

In the case of Donald Trump, the Democrats don’t believe we should consider that the same players have made numerous accusations, all of which have proven to be false—many by the Special Counsel and his team. No matter how many more false accusations they make, they are never held accountable, nor do they ever concede anything. They simply pivot to even more outlandish accusations believing they’ll never be held accountable for those either.  Their motives and misdeeds are regularly revealed to the public but of course, they simply beg us to believe that their opponents (Donald Trump and anyone who supports him and his policies) are the bad guys.

The American People will be the jury come Impeachment Tuesday. They will watch the ever-virulent Democrats try to remove a stunningly successful (even by what used to be their own standards) President, on false accusations which even if true, are not crimes. Yet, the propaganda media has managed to convince a certain segment of the population that prosperity and success are dangerous and failure is infinitely preferable.

While acquittal is the likely outcome in this exercise and Democrats have known that from the start, what is most fascinating is that they think the wholly partisan smearing of Donald Trump as an “Impeached President” will help them in November. Others, like my friend Dr. Gerard Lameiro, think it’s exactly the opposite. They say the longer Democrats keep impeachment in the foreground, the more Republicans will win. I tend to agree. So Lindsay Graham, “Cool it!”

This Tuesday, as will be the case on the first Tuesday in November, the direction we decide to go as a country won’t be just a day at the movies. We will choose between right and wrong, Big government vs. restrained government, and Capitalism vs. Communism.

With issues as big as these, it’s time to know where we stand. The best answer is not “somewhere in the middle.”

    Isaiah 5:20
    “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”

    There will be recompense for those who falsely accuse the President, and it won’t only come through human means; G0D is not mocked by mockers. There will be a penalty to be paid, and not just eternally: in the here-and-now. Bitter liars like Schiff, Pelosi and Nadler will be dealt with. And again, not though human hands and human mechanisms.

    It is never pleasant to watch people get what they deserve; imagine the horror of watching Korah and his rebels as they’re swallowed up by the earth, their screams silenced as the earth closes over them, and the others incinerated by fire from the sky. Imagine the horror. And Nadler is Korah; so is Schiff. Pray for their repentance, because what is coming to them is horrible.

    Nancy the Goat chews her cud in panic, as she sees that she’s about to be driven out into the wilderness; she has misused her lying “prayers for Trump” and does not know to Whom she prays. Her mind will go, and she’ll be unknowing whether it is day or night, having confused good for evil and evil for good.

    The author hit the nail on the head.

    Although the Senate trial is about the removal of President Trump I personally think Trey Gowdy has it right. He believes this is now about putting vulnerable Senators McSally, Ernst, Booker, and others on the defense in tough re-elections to flip the senate to democrats. Thus, neutering Presidents Trump’s second term since it is increasingly unlikely a democrat will win. I further believe if the democrats get both houses they will impeach and run another trial although it would be unlikely the President would be removed since the democrats would not have enough votes. However, Schumer would be able to run a schiff show in the senate not allowing republicans or the President due process to further harass and impede anything the President attempts to do for the country.

      Impeachment was initially about damaging the President to scuttle his re-election–their only path to victory since all of their candidates are pathetic.

      This has clearly failed. It is now going forward on its own inevitable momentum, but retaking the Senate will be a nice consolation prize for the Dems, as they can block any further SCOTUS nominations.

      I was expecting the second impeachment this year, but you may be right that it will be after re-election.

      I do not believe a single word from Howdy Gowdy. When he was a member of the gang of eight, he had read ALL of the documents available regarding the soft coup. Gowdy stated on Fox several times that he had seen the documents and they wouldn’t change anyone’s mind except for possibly one single document. I have seen enough (and so should you have) documentation to sway any neutral observer to believe Trump was set up. Gowdy is part of the swamp and a reason he didn’t run for re-election.

    Lindsay Graham is a hack and a fool. Anyone who believes his televised blatherings is also a fool. That would be you, Tick-Tock.

    If some astroturfed event goes down in Richmond, it should happen in the next couple of hours to maximize media exploitation.

      Two of the white supremacists, Jason Kessler and Richard Spencer, are Democrats: Spencer voted for John Kerry in 2004, and Kessler voted for Barack Obama in 2008. Charlottesville debacle was built on the pile of scum from whence these two have arrived. Both went to the University of Virginia (how ’bout them Hoos!) They stink up everything they touch. These two voters for John Kerry and Barack Obama are losers, and Kessler reportedly is an Incel. (They should watch those Incels, as they are currently in Texas.)

      However, Van Cleave said it was “Leftists” who were trying to drive people away, with warnings. Not so: the warnings may have prevented (we’ll see) a big event. The Left is joined by people like those I’ve listed above, and ANTIFA has a list of people they have stated will be murdered.

      In colleges and universities where Conservative and Libertarian and pro-Israel people have been scheduled to speak, the schools shut down the speeches because of the threats. This is unconstitutional in its face: the public colleges and universities are duty-bound to protect the speakers and their exercise of free speech. And marchers for the 2nd Amendment should expect government to protect them, too, against any and all threats. Unfortunately, the US has a history of false flags and the police being used in police-state action against a lot of people, including labor unions and civil rights marchers, as well as inciting the murders in Waco by the FBI and ATF.

      Neither the 2nd Amendment nor the 1st Amendment are up for sale, nor for those rights to be deprived.

      1. phineas gage - January 20, 2020

        All true. Either Antifa or undercover moles such as those you name posing among the protesters could attempt something.

        Also, having Alex Jones show up in an armored Humvee is probably sub-optimal.

      As of 12:30 EST, it appears things have remained peaceful and there have been no incidents. All of the “domestic terrorists” in support of 2A rights rallied calmly in the 1A zone fenced in by the VA govt. I did see on twitter some folks open carrying ARs out side of the zone, but looks like there was a pretty decent turnout, albeit less than what was predicted.We’ll have to read some of the AARs later today to get the insider’s view.

        25,000, is what is being reported. Expecting more?

    It won’t end in some haze of moral equivalency: Declass, WHEN it happens, will end the careers of several politicians – (none of them Conservatives.) Others will lose their seats in accidents and health-related scares, like boils, warts, pestilence and carbuncles – whatever witches and warlocks are susceptible to.

    (By the way, Richard Spencer, Democrat voter, is a also pagan – because Christ is too race-inclusive.)

    Expect the press to continue lying as long as water is wet. We make the calculations with them in mind, and sever their impact. They are cucks. Liars and cucks and Incels. The Book of Revelation does not mention cucks and Incels, but “all liars” are destined for hell.

    Now the NY Times is supporting Lieawatha AND Nasty Amy – the latter I predicted, because she’s been waiting for the rest of the field to dissolve in their own juices, like bugs in a pitcher plant. Booger was a big one; Princess Kamasutra was another; others, like QuidProGropeyJoe have already dissolved, and Nasty Amy is being positioned like a vulture or gargoyle (strong resemblance there, the latter) to pick at his bones. The pitcher plant has room for more, and one-by-one, especially Prince(ss) Buttergag, will be next. Slip slidin’ away…

    Tiny Mike, AKA China Mike and Mini Mike, will be forced to declare as an agent of a foreign nation, specifically China. He wants China to take all our jobs, even as he claims he’ll make jobs. Funny: the NY Slimes was astute enough not to pick their hometown booger. He can’t debate, and he can’t lead, and he can’t dance. Might as well save his money – or like another Edomite, Herod the Great, give it to the rebuilding of the new Temple. Won’t buy him love, but at least it would go somewhere useful.

    As far as the two Korahs go: well, let’s just suggest that if they happen to be on your flight, you might want to turn around at the gate. Or don’t take their train.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - January 20, 2020

    Prediction: McConnell will push the “kill switch” and call for a vote as soon as the idiots begin to show their abominable behinds. Predictable, and shouldn’t take long.

    As far as a 2nd and 3rd impeachment: Princess Goatlips was getting a lot of grief from her own party for this sham, and some have suggested – (possibly with some truth in it) – that she picked the dumbest, most vile members of her party to lead impeachment. I decline to concur, as Maxine the Mouth, AOCrazio and Omar the Barbarian are even worse. And Omar is under investigation.

    The “impeached President” gets more and more popular every time they throw monkey-poo at him; the monkeys are cute, until you’re hit with one of their turds. Not so cute anymore! But the Gatekeeper is coming, along with Declass, and there will be a lot of fleeing monkeys, hiding and chattering.
