The U.S. House of Representatives (“The People’s House”) has launched a formal impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump. True to form, Christians, conservatives and most Republicans are dismissing this investigation as “another witch hunt” against Trump.
To be sure, the only time a political party in Washington, D.C., gets constitutionally indignant against a sitting president is when that president is a member of the opposite party. Accordingly, impeachment or censorship is typically NOT motivated by reasons of constitutional conviction but by reasons that are nothing more than pure political partisanship. They (both parties) only care about the Constitution when they can use it as a hammer against the other party.
By the same token, rank-and-file Democrats and Republicans typically don’t give a rat’s tail about the Constitution either—except when THEY can use it as a hammer against the other party. I’ll say it again: The phony left/right, Democrat/Republican paradigm is killing our country.
Do I believe Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses? You bet I do! I believe he deserved to be impeached as soon as he took office for bribing two prostitutes during the 2016 campaign to keep quiet about their sexual affairs with Trump—acts that were clearly intended to strengthen (or, at the very least, to not weaken) his presidential campaign. I further believe that Trump deserves to be impeached for bombing Syria without the approval of Congress, without Syria attacking or threatening to attack the U.S. and without any declaration of war by Congress.
In fact, Donald Trump has dropped over 110,000 bombs—killing mostly innocent civilians—since he became president. Every single bomb dropped and every single innocent person killed was an impeachable offense in my view.
Then again, I believe that every president in my lifetime deserved to be impeached, as none of them faithfully upheld their oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of The United States.”
But the current impeachment investigation is not focused on any of the above. It is focused on Trump’s apparent attempt to deliberately solicit the assistance of a foreign government (Ukraine) to help find dirt on his chief political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Make no mistake about it: This is a very serious investigation. This one has teeth. This one has the potential to seriously damage Trump’s presidency.
America’s Founding Fathers took foreign interference—especially in U.S. elections—very seriously. In his Farewell Address, George Washington warned:
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government.
To be sure, since the dawn of the 20th century, foreign influences upon the U.S. government (even State governments) have been plentiful, powerful and perpetual. In recent memory, the influence that China exerted over the Bill Clinton White House was massive. And we have also learned that the influence of the Russian/Jewish mafia (readers should understand that for all intents and purposes the Russian mafia is nothing more than the old Bolshevik/Jewish mafia) over the Donald Trump White House is also massive.
I have previously documented in this column the close working relationship between Donald Trump and the Russian/Jewish mafia going back to his years in private business. This relationship only intensified after Trump became president.
While Robert Mueller deliberately let Trump off the hook for the Russian mob’s influence over him, at least half of Mueller’s report on Trump’s potential criminal activity chronicled a “pattern” of obstruction by Trump. Mueller left it to Trump’s Justice Department to determine what charges, if any, should be brought against the president—knowing that Trump toady Attorney General Bill Barr would do nothing except provide cover for Trump.
Contrary to the paranoid persuasions of the political right, Robert Mueller has always been a puppet of the Russian/Jewish Deep State, and, therefore, he never had any intention of accusing their most powerful and loyal front man (Trump) of overt criminality that would assure his impeachment. But his finding of a “pattern” of obstruction by Trump still comprises HALF of Mueller’s report.
And when it comes to foreign influence, the State of Israel has the greatest influence upon the U.S. government of all influences, foreign or domestic. Israel has scores of professional lobby organizations operating in Washington, D.C. (not to mention the covert ones), exerting the single most powerful influence on Washington politics. In addition, as I have documented previously, Washington is littered with politicians who hold dual citizenship with the State of Israel.
It is no hyperbole to say that the State of Israel influences the policies and decisions of every president and every federal congress—Democrat and Republican—since almost from the time of its inception in 1948. But since the vast majority of politicos inside the Beltway from both parties are on the take from the powerful Israeli lobby, no one will ever be exposed, much less impeached, for these crimes.
But Donald Trump’s arrogance, pride and assumption of power is unequalled in American history. He literally believes himself to be above the law—any law. And since becoming president, he believes he IS the law.
Do I believe Trump’s actions regarding the phone call with the Ukrainian president were an impeachable offense? From what I have learned to date, yes I do. (And I’m glad to see that Congressman Justin Amash and Judge Andrew Napolitano agree with me.) And I further believe that this is quintessential Donald Trump. It is part of his nature; part of his “pattern” of obstruction. And it does no good for Trump loyalists to try and shift the blame on Joe Biden and his son. Yes, Biden is guilty too. (Why didn’t Republicans in the House launch an impeachment inquiry against Biden when he was Vice President?) But Biden is not president; Trump is.
And as far as Joe Biden is concerned, this impeachment investigation may not only be the political demise of Donald Trump, it might also be the political demise of Biden. Tanking Biden might be as much a part of the Deep State’s plan as tanking Trump.
One would think that if Trump is impeached—even without being removed from office, which is highly unlikely given a supermajority in the Republican Senate would be required to convict—Joe Biden would be the natural beneficiary. Despite his age and blunders of speech, Biden is far and away Trump’s most formidable challenger in 2020. The radical socialist views of both Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren make them very weak candidates in a national election against even an unpopular and crippled (due to his impeachment, should it occur) incumbent Republican president. But what happens if this impeachment investigation takes down Biden but not Trump? That’s certainly a possibility.
At this juncture, we can only speculate. The movers and shakers of the Deep State are light-years ahead of us ordinary Americans when it comes to their geopolitical planning. If they want Trump to remain in power (yes, he is as much a toady of the Deep State as anyone else), the Zionist-controlled media will turn against Biden (which they already seem to be doing), and Warren will be nominated (Sanders is not enough of a warmonger for the power elite). In that matchup, Trump would win by about the same margin in which he beat Hillary—or maybe by an even greater margin. Wall Street in New York hates Warren as much as State Street in Chicago hates Trump. In that matchup, Wall Street wins every time.
If, however, the power elite considers Trump to be too much of a liability to risk four additional years of him in the White House (his skeletons and crimes are plenteous)—and given Trump’s arrogance and Napoleonic predispositions—they may not be able to protect him from discovery for that length of time. Their course of action in this scenario could include sacrificing Trump via a serious impeachment effort that would make it almost impossible for him to win in 2020. If enough Republicans are convinced that Trump is truly guilty of the charges that he sought foreign influence over next year’s elections and join the impeachment effort, it will be almost impossible for Trump to continue to govern—à la Richard Nixon.
If the above scenario takes place, it will mean that Anthony Scaramucci could be right and Donald Trump could resign the presidency so as to give Vice President Mike Pence the opportunity to beat an avowed socialist Democrat in 2020—which he would.
As an aside, back in June of 2017, I wrote in this column about the distinct possibility that the globalists’ plan might be for Mike Pence to be the Republican nominee and hence the next U.S. president. That possibility is even more likely now than when I wrote that column.
Regardless, this point needs to be driven home: America’s founders believed that impeachment was a very important and necessary tool in the arsenal of liberty and constitutional government. If anything, impeachment is not used nearly often enough.
James Madison saw the impeachment clause in the Constitution as being “indispensable . . . for defending the Community [against] the incapacity, negligence or perfidy of the chief Magistrate.” He further explained, “The limitation of the period of his [the president’s] service was not a sufficient security. He might lose his capacity after his appointment. He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation [embezzlement or theft] or oppression. He might betray his trust to foreign powers.”
Elbridge Gerry said, “A good magistrate will not fear [impeachments]. A bad one ought to be kept in fear of them.”
George Mason said, “No point is of more importance than that the right of impeachment should be continued. Shall any man be above Justice?”
Impeachment is the constitutional antidote to the unconstitutional conduct of civil magistrates. The fact that impeachment has been used so seldom is a curse, not a blessing. Since 1789, only 19 federal officials have been brought up on impeachment charges by the House of Representatives, with eight people convicted after a Senate trial. Two Presidents—Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton—were impeached but were not found guilty by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.
Impeachment is a strong deterrent to mischief and is an intricate part of our constitutional system of checks and balances against the attempted accruement of power by the executive or judicial branches of government. Via the Constitution, our founders entrusted the greatest authority over government corruption and the greatest responsibility to protect the liberties of the American people to the Congress—especially to the House of Representatives—hence the duty of the American people to elect honest and honorable men and women to the U.S. House—which is rightly called “The People’s House.”
Even if a president is not removed from office, the fact that he was impeached will deter future actions of wrongdoing and will also mar his future reputation. History will forever hold an impeached president’s term in office in disrepute. Potential impeachment was intended to be a strong deterrent against presidential abuse of power.
Obviously, for impeachment to be the proper tool for good that it was designed to be, the House of Representatives must be comprised of men and women of constitutional principle who value liberty and constitutional government above partisan politics. This we have not had in ages. Furthermore, the American people who elect their U.S. House members must be men and women who value liberty and constitutional government above partisan politics. Neither have we had this in ages.
Accordingly, impeachment is not often used, as principled constitutionalism in the U.S. House and in the voting public is as rare as hen’s teeth. And on those isolated occasions when it is used, it is used mostly as a Sword of Damocles for partisan politics rather than a sword of justice for the principles of liberty.
P.S. I still want to remind readers of my message DVD The Destruction Of Jerusalem.
The vast majority of Christians know next to nothing of the destruction of Jerusalem. The great truths that God taught through this seismic event are all but lost to today's Christians. The lack of knowledge and understanding about the destruction of Jerusalem is a sign of the great "falling away" that has taken place in the Church over the past one hundred years. It is also a major cause of the vast misinterpretation of prophetic Scriptures relating to Israel.
Furthermore, the loss of these great truths contributes massively to the false doctrines of Christian Zionism being taught by the vast majority of evangelical churches today.
This one message, by itself, has already been used of God to not only challenge the thinking of many people rooted in Christian Zionism but to actually change their minds. This is the ONE message to give to as many friends as you can. I don't know of another single message that has more power of God upon it to help bring Christians to an understanding of the Biblical truth regarding Israel than this one.
Plus, since so many people want to share this DVD with their friends and loved ones, I am offering a special bulk discount price for this message.
