The Democrat/Media Coup d’etat Playbook Once Again Lands on “Obstruction”

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

Holy crap, we’re back to “obstruction” again. – Every American who was awake during 2017 will remember how, when their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy quickly ran aground on the shoals of truth and reality, the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation immediately shifted the focus of the Mueller witch hunt to trying to dummy up a case against President Trump for “obstruction of justice.”

In support of that tactic, Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media began characterizing literally any action the accused POTUS took to defend himself as somehow being “evidence” of “obstruction.” The very word in fact lost all real meaning as it became just a catch-all for every defensive act, no matter how innocuous it might be.

Lo and behold, on Monday we arrived right back at that very same point again. With their initial justification for kicking off this fake impeachment scam, i.e., the allegation of a ‘quid pro quo’ taking place during the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, having collapsed to the point that the Democrats are now pretending the “whistleblower” who started it all now apparently no longer exists, Adam Schiff made it clear during a press availability that the goal posts have now shifted to yet another vague “obstruction’ allegation.

Here is a clip of Schiff’s remarks, followed by a transcript for those who still like to read stuff:

Here’s the transcript of Pencil Neck’s remarks:

Today we had additional scheduled depositions with the top lawyer for the National Security Council, as well as Mr. Blair from the OMB and someone who worked closely with Mick Mulvaney. Both of them defied congressional subpoenas and refused to appear for their scheduled depositions, as has been the case with other witnesses who have done the same thing.

This will be further evidence of the Administration’s efforts to obstruct the lawful and constitutional duties of congress. I would also say, and we expect the witnesses who we’ve subpoenaed to come in this afternoon [garbled] to also be no-shows, this will only further add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of congress charge against the President.

Indeed, in the Nixon impeachment there was an article of impeachment based on the obstruction of congress that itemized each of the subpoenas the White House had defied. Well, today we have four additional subpoenas to add to the list of a potential charge against the President of the United States and his obstruction of its constitutional duties.

[End]

So, just as in the playbook used for the whole Russia Collusion scam, the Schiff/Pelosi Impeachment scam now shifts away from the failed original allegation to the catch-all tactic of characterizing any and every defensive action taken by the White House as “obstruction of congress.”

The pathological Schiff’s comparison of this current scam to the Nixon impeachment process is both laughable and heinously disgusting. There are three very key differences between the two situations:

  1. The impeachment process of Nixon was kicked off by a real, true vote of the full House of Representatives on February 6, 1974 to establish a real, true formal impeachment process. The Schiff/Pelosi scam was kicked off by unilateral decree by the Speaker, ostensibly in response to a fake complaint filed a fake whistleblower.
  2. The 1973 impeachment vote by the House received bipartisan support – last week’s sham vote to simply continue Pelosi’s unlawful process did not.
  3. In the end, the House impeachment process had identified a long list of real, actual criminal actions taken by President Nixon and his staff. Today’s scam process has not only failed to identify any actual criminal actions on the part of the President or anyone who works for him – other than the fake whistleblower himself, perhaps – we haven’t even seen anyone allege any actual crimes have taken place.

All we have as of today are Schiff’s phony complaints about “obstruction of congress” because Administration official are defying his sham “subpoenas.” Those “subpoenas” in fact have no force of law because the House has to this point failed to legally establish a formal impeachment process. They are in fact nothing more than mendacious letters that contain no enforcement mechanism.

So, we’re back to “obstruction” one more time, and if that tells us anything, it tells us for certain sure that Pencil Neck and his gang of circus clowns are stuck holding another big ol’ bag of nothing.

That is all.

Pelosi Creates Yet Another Impeachment Scam

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If the Democrats didn’t have scams, they’d have nothing at all. – Lindsey Graham actually did something productive last week, and it deserves mentioning here. Despite the fact that there is literally zero chance that the resolution he introduced last Thursday condemning the sham fake impeachment process being run in the House right now could ever obtain the 60 votes needed for cloture, Graham’s ability to convince 50 of the 53 Senate Republicans to sign onto the resolution as sponsors demonstrated the resolve of the Senate majority to oppose any product from the current House process.

This effort by Graham produced two excellent results. First, it outed three GOP RINOs as being so disloyal that they can’t even vote to condemn the obviously anti-American, Soviet-style process being run in the basement of the Capitol building by Schiff and his gang of thugs. Those three senators are Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and of course, Mitt Romney, the Murderers Row of Senate RINOs. It would be sad if it weren’t so tiresome and predictable. Alaska, Maine and Utah voters: What in the hell are you thinking?

The second excellent result produced by Graham’s resolution is that it put pressure on Pelosi to do something to anoint her sham process with some imprimatur of legitimacy. The obvious way to do that would be to hold a vote of the full House on a resolution to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry, a step that has been taken in every previous impeachment process in American history. Initial reports from our fake news media Monday morning indicated Pelosi would be doing exactly that. Silly us for believing anything our fake news media says anymore.

Those reports were, of course, completely false. Pelosi can’t hold a vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry for the simple fact that she still does not have enough members of her pathetic caucus willing to support such a resolution. She still has 35-40 Democrats who were elected in GOP-majority districts in 2018, and all of them know they will be signing their re-election chances away if they vote to authorize a formal, actual impeachment inquiry.

But that’s not the only problem Pelosi and Schiff have here. They also know that a vote to begin a real, formal impeachment inquiry would result in GOP house members on the relevant committees having the same powers to subpoena and question witnesses that the Democrats have under the current Soviet inquisition. Even worse, the Trump Administration would also then have similar rights and powers.

In other words, a formal impeachment inquiry would function in the way the American system of justice is supposed to function under our Constitutional Republican form of government, and we all know the Democrats can’t have that.

Thus, Pelosi, faced with the procedural roadblock set up by Graham’s resolution, decided she had to do what she and her fellow Democrats always do when one of their scams fails: Create another scam. So, she huddled up with her buddies over at Lawfare, who really run the House of Representatives these days, and came up with – you got it – another scam.

This scam will involve a vote – ostensibly of the “full House” – on a resolution “Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes.”

In other words, it is simply a vote to authorize the continuation of the current Soviet-style inquisition.  Pelosi believes that, with the always-willing help of the army of Democrat toadies in the fake news media, she will be able to convince the nation that this vote, since it involves all members of the House, somehow legitimizes her illegitimate process.

Doing it this way will also allow her 40 or so reluctant members to claim to voters next year that, hey, they didn’t vote for “impeachment,” they just voted to continue an inquiry into whether an impeachment was justified. See the difference? Yeah, neither will most of their voters.

But here’s the catch that she and Schiff are counting on: If even one Republican member of the House votes “yes” when her resolution comes to a vote on Thursday – and a handful have already indicated they support the current process – then they and their media toady army will be able to claim that this vote was “bipartisan.”

Pelosi and her Lawfare lieutenants are also hoping that this vote, if “bipartisan,” will be able to convey the judicial enforcement authority that their sham process currently lacks. This lack of authority is why the “subpoenas” that have been sent to the executive branch by Schiff thus far are nothing more than toothless letters with no enforcement authority.

This is San Fran Nan’s philosophy of governance: When nothing you do is legitimate, you do everything you can to legitimize the illegitimate. In this latest scam, she’s counting on that one Republican vote, and you can be sure that there is a Mitt Romney clone in the GOP caucus just salivating over the chance to give it to her.

That is all.
