Trump calls their bluff

There is NO low to which the Democrat-Socialists will not stoop to quench their ravening, insatiable lust for power and undo the 2016 election—up to and including the willful, reckless instigation of a truly dangerous Constitutional crisis.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Lawfare allies can change House rules (they did). Pelosi and Lawfare can also change House impeachment rules (they did). Pelosi/Lawfare can change committee rules (they did); and in doing so they can remove House republicans from the entire process… Which They Did. However, what Lawfare and Pelosi cannot change is The U.S. Constitution, which they are desperate to confront.

Speaker Pelosi’s ‘Lawfare House rules‘ and/or ‘Lawfare impeachment rules‘ cannot supersede the constitutional separation of powers.

Nancy Pelosi cannot decree an “official impeachment inquiry”, and as a consequence nullify a constitutional firewall between the Legislative Branch and Executive Branch.

This “impeachment” is a full-on fraud, a phony, ginned-up parody of the legitimate impeachment process. The “subpoenas” Trump has rightly instructed his administration to ignore are likewise fraudulent:

In the last week you’ve probably heard the media sell a narrative that Speaker Pelosi’s House Committee teams are sending out subpoenas to the State Department and White House. However, has anyone actually looked for those “subpoenas”, or read the language of the written communication from those committees’?

As you read this, remember: these carefully chosen words come from the Lawfare Alliance…

Notice the phrase “sent a letter conveying a subpoena“?

That statement is not the same as ‘sent a subpoena’; actually, it’s not even close – it is pure parseltongue. You can call any car a Ferrari, but that doesn’t make it so.

The House has no independent enforcement mechanism, so each time the House of Representative wants to send a subpoena with an enforcement bite – they need to go to the judicial branch (court system) for an enforceable order. However, notice in these letters the enforcement mechanism is internal. It is a self-fulfilling ‘obstruction‘ scheme.

Speaker Pelosi does not want to engage the judicial branch, nor does she want to give the target (President Trump) the opportunity to engage the judicial branch, ie. court.

So: a fake impeachment, buttressed by fake subpoenas, a fake “whistleblower,” and a fake Russia/Ukraine “scandal,” then. Trump, correctly, has formally refused to dance to the Democrat-Socialists’ tune.

The White House on Tuesday formally told Speaker Pelosi and three other committee chairs to pound sand, calling their impeachment efforts “illegitimate” and “dangerous,” prompting a standoff with Congress.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote an 8-page letter to Speaker Pelosi and Dem chairs on three key committees, Schiff, Cummings and Engel, letting them know their impeachment inquiry “lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation,” and violates Trump’s due process rights.
 
Cipollone also called the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry a partisan effort “to overturn the results of the 2016 election” of President Donald Trump.

More:

The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it. For purely political reasons, the Democrats have decided their desire to overturn the outcome of the 2016 election allows them to conduct a so-called impeachment inquiry that ignores the fundamental rights guaranteed to every American.

These partisan proceedings are an affront to the Constitution—as they are being held behind closed doors and deny the President the right to call witnesses, to cross-examine witnesses, to have access to evidence, and many other basic rights.

Today, on behalf of President Donald J. Trump, Pat Cipollone, Counsel to the President, sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi and Chairmen Engel, Schiff, and Cummings. The letter demonstrates that the Democrats’ inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, and even the most elementary due process protections.

Democrats are pursuing purely partisan goals, including influencing the upcoming 2020 election. In the process, they are violating civil liberties and the separation of powers, threatening Executive Branch officials with punishment simply for exercising their constitutional rights and prerogatives.

All of this violates the Constitution, the rule of law, and every past precedent. For these reasons, the Executive Branch cannot be expected to, and will not participate in, this exercise of partisan political theater.

Nailed it, and every word’s a gem. But don’t think this is anything new from the sleazy, slimy worms of the Democrat-Socialist Party. They relentlessly hounded Nixon, Reagan, and both Bushes in similar fashion. The difference is one of degree and not kind; they’ve escalated from harrassing previous Republican presidents, to persecuting Trump.

Pelosi and her coup co-conspirators have now breached the line separating political chicanery from outright sedition and attempted revolution. In so doing, they have gone from amusing if annoying buffoons to rabid, traitorous curs who need to be—MUST be—put down like the dogs they are. They are the self-proclaimed enemies of absolutely every principle this country was founded on, and of every American who still gives a damn about those principles.

In their insane quest for absolute, unquestioned power, the Pelosicrat scum have wantonly created the conditions for a bloody conflagration that will quickly flare up to scorch every last one of us. The arrogant fools are flicking matches at a powder keg, not caring a whit about the damage and misery the inevitable explosion will bring.

So be it. May they have joy of their choice. And may God damn every last one of them to Hell.

  1. If they don’t hang by the neck until dead, they are just waiting for the next Democrat president to pardon them.

    Instant heros of the resistance.
