Skip to comments.Democracy, not Trump, is on trial (vengeful Dems inflicting political oppression on Trump voters)
Posted on 11/17/2019 5:13:51 AM PST by Liz
Impeachment hearings are a taxpayer-funded, propaganda war of political intimidation: an attempt not only to undermine Pres Trump, but to demoralize and break the will of those who voted for him.
Democrats are not solemnly upholding the Constitution. They are conducting psychological warfare under the pretext of law. They want the president and his supporters those who dared challenge the permanent, elite government class to know they can never win.
Stand with us, get on the right side of history, or suffer the consequences, just like the president you supported, is the message.
This is not good faith, adversarial politics. This is a form of political oppression.
Democrats, moving on from the disastrous Robert Mueller hearings, offer new cadres of government-insider witnesses, most of whose evidence would be laughed out of any courtroom in America.
.....none of this is about facts, truth or due process. The impeachment charade like the rest of the anti-Trump effort to overturn the election results is a case study in raw power politics and ruthless, relentless bullying.
Nor is it only the left that potentially benefits.
Elements of the establishment, neocon right stand to gain advantage, too. As John R. Bradley argues in The Spectator, [W]ith the threat of impeachment hanging over his head, Trump cannot afford to alienate [military] hawks, some of whom sit in the Senate and might decide his fate in an impeachment trial. Hence, one wing of the establishment picks up where the other leaves off: Calls for impeachment on the left give hawks on the right leverage to force Trumps hand.
Who loses in this dynamic? Who is ignored? The people who voted for the outsider Trump the voters who demanded, among other things, the extraction of Americas troops from foreign theaters of conflict.

Brother will be fighting brother in the streets thanks to the Rats.
this could be easily remedied before getting out of hand.
It is time to ruthlessly eliminate these traitors from our nation.
Well, that is part of the problem. The Rats are unchecked. They need to start taking casualties, too; either in the streets or the courts. Right now, only Conservatives are being attacked or going to jail.
“Augustus Howard, Esq”
I had a hard time getting past the “Esq.” What kind of person refers to himself as Esquire?
I respectfully disagree with the title. What is on trial is America's constitutional status as a representative republic. Democracy is mob rule by the majority.
Lawyers. They do in Wisconsin, anyway.
I was once peripherally involved in a law suit in another state and the lawyers all sent me copies of everything. I refused to hire a lawyer for the nonsense. After the first year I began to get mail addressed to “bert esquire”.
They have to put down the peasant rebellion, and keep everyone in line. It won’t work though. The genie is out of the bottle.
I like Trump’s quote: “It’s not me they hate. It’s you. I’m just in the way.”
Now never was more naivete about war ever posted.
If war comes, it will run its course more like the civil war in the Marshalls.
Right. It won't take much; just a few prominent examples.
If elements on the right use the lefts bullying to leverage their own agendas, then they are making common cause with the enemy.
So far it seems to me it is working, because Dems keep winning elections. They don't appear to be paying any price whatsoever for their sedition and attempted coup. If anything, Republican voters are not turning out in massive numbers to fight back during elections. This is incredibly discouraging.
We’re not a democracy, so I don’t care about it.
Unfortunately I dont think we will take the easy way.
“Brother will be fighting brother in the streets thanks to the Rats.”
Same as it ever was, 1860. They did the same thing in the first Civil War.
THEY'RE COMING AFTER YOU AND I AND OUR FREE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC!!!!
