The Truth Doesn’t Matter

You may have noticed that I’m hardly posting anything on the impeachment situation show trial witch hunt. That’s because the entire thing nauseates me, and most of us have been aware for more than 3 years that every aspect of this thing is a fake. The latest “report” is nearly a whitewash; par for the course from a government that did the same thing with their 9/11 Commission. CYA, CYA, lie, omit, denounce, project. And I’m utterly fed up with it. Not a grain of truth anywhere, but hate will always find a way out, so the clown show goes on. Forever.

Truth? We Don’t Need No Stinking Truth!!

Jordan’s Amendment To Impeachment Charges Struck Down

The House Judiciary Committee swiftly became the scene of a fresh partisan clash Thursday as lawmakers pressed ahead with two articles of impeachment against President Trump, with majority Democrats turning aside a last-ditch bid by Republicans to call witnesses of their choice before a looming committee vote.

That vote is poised to send the measures to the full House for a historically weighty floor vote in a matter of days. But first, lawmakers will finalize the text of the articles during Thursday’s all-day session.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, began the debate Thursday morning by proposing an amendment that would strike the first article of impeachment altogether, claiming the evidence did not support the allegations of abuse of power.

“This amendment strikes article one because article one ignores the truth,” Jordan said. He pointed to the White House memorandum documenting President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, claiming it contained no evidence of a quid pro quo related to Ukraine investigating Trump’s political opponents.

“The day the transcript came out, even Chairman Nadler said there was no quid pro quo in the call transcript,” Jordan said. He went on to note that both Trump and Zelensky have stated there was no quid pro quo discussed or pressure placed on Ukraine, and that in the end Ukraine never took any action or made any announcement regarding any investigation.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., supported Jordan’s amendment, arguing, “There was no impeachable offense here.”

He [ Doug Collins, R-GA ] and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., each argued that unlike previous presidents who have faced impeachment, Trump was not accused of an offense actually defined by law: neither “abuse of power” nor “obstruction of Congress” is a recognized federal or state crime. Those are the two offenses outlined in the articles of impeachment before the committee. (The separate charge of contempt of Congress, according to the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel, exempts the president for separation-of-powers reasons.)

So this is the biggest nothing burger in a whole series of nothing burgers. When the rules for impeachment say “high crimes and misdemeanors”, charge him with things that aren’t crimes. Ignore the facts, hide the real truth that this is one more eruption of the never-ending coupe attempt. All they’ve got is OrangeManBad and a big bowl of sour grapes. It’s getting pretty tiring.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
