Good Luck to Ya, Democrats

Posted by Troy on 17th May 2017 in Political

You have scant evidence for obstruction, but you are determined to continue with your impeachment hearing.  Here are the things I learned.  Know how everyone complains that Washington is corrupt and never changes?  That’s true.  That there really is only one party as the Left and the Right are in cahoots?  That’s true.  That the media is little more than Leftist propaganda and should be ignored?  That’s true.  Obama used the IRS as a weapon, interfered with American elections, and killed Americans without a trial.  No one said anything.  Trump utters, “I hope you can just let this go,” and everyone loses their minds.

Win, lose, or draw… If Trump is impeached and leaves office:  You get Pence.  You also get most of the country flat ignoring the media.  You will probably have Trump start his own media outlet which will make Fox News look tame.  Meanwhile, you will completely energize Trump supporters for 2018 and 2020 by showing how little you care for the results of elections while de-incentivizing your own side.  Finally… you will get Pence.  Stable, liable Pence.

Good Luck to Ya!

Long Live the Constitution!

Left Derangement and Impeachment Impossibilities

Posted by Troy on 16th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

The Left has come completely unhinged.

First, let’s talk about Trump “leaking classified information to the Russian Ambassador.”  This is actually impossible.  The President can declassify anything at any time.  He just CAN.  There’s nothing that can be done with it.  If he leaked the nuclear codes, I’m upset.  So what did he leak?  He leaked the city that the information was cleaned where ISIS is located.  The vast majority of Americans say “Meh.”  In fact, this seems reasonable.  He is trying to get Russia to aid in the fight against ISIS.  Doesn’t it seem reasonable that he might share such information as LOCATION with the forces he is trying to solicit aid from?  I just don’t see how this is a big deal.

Second, let’s talk about Comey saying that Trump tried to shut down the case against Flynn.  What did Trump say?  ”I hope you can let this go.  He’s a good man, and I hope you can let this go.”  That’s pretty innocuous.  Close doesn’t count here.  There was no veiled threat.  It would be different if Trump had said, “I hope you can let this go…it would be a shame if you lost your job because of it.”  Okay, well, that’s a threat.  The other is conveyance of your desires.  There was no promise of reward or punishment.  Once more…there are only two options: either Comey didn’t think it was obstruction at the time (in which case, he is being a petulant child throwing a temper tantrum because he was fired) or he held this back to blackmail the President.  In either case, he tarnishes his character and his testimony.  As such, the only conclusion that I can reach is that Trump was merely conveying a hope and his support to his friend and supporter.  Again…the vast majority of Americans would say  ”Meh.”

So let’s finally talk about impeachment impossibilities.  Dude…have ya read the Constitution?  The House of Representatives has to vote for impeachment.  Very unlikely given the fact that the Republicans are in a majority.  It would then go to the Senate for trial, which would be unlikely as the Republicans are in power there.

This obsession is going to backfire.  Democrats are appearing to be foaming at the mouth.  If every day the Democrats scream the sky is falling, it won’t take long before people stop listening.  Why?  Because the sky hasn’t fallen.

Here is the truth.  If the economy is going gangbusters in 3 years, Trump will win.  If the economy crashes or remains stagnant, he will lose.  If anything, the Democrats should want Trump to stay as President.  If he is impeached, Pence takes over.  Trump is better for ratings.  He is better for fund-raising.  He is also willing to negotiate.  Pence would eat them alive.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Difference – Trump and Clinton on Comey

Posted by Troy on 11th May 2017 in Political

Everyone is “upset” now because Trump asked Comey if he was under investigation.  They point to the hypocrisy of conservatives because “This is what you got upset over when Bill met with Loretta Lynch.”

No…

“Hey, am I under investigation?”  Is a fairly innocuous question, if that is all he asked.  It may be a breach of etiquette or unseemly, but it’s not a crime.

Bill’s 45 minute, private conversation is a different matter.  We are not worried or upset because Bill asked if Hillary was being investigate or inquiring about the investigation.  We believe that what he really was doing was saying “What do we have to offer you in order for this to just go away?”  This is how the Clintons have operated their entire lives.

Under the statute, she was guilty.  Dead to rights.  She did not get prosecuted.

That’s what we are upset about.  When dealing with national security information, gross negligence is a CRIME.  Comey said, “She was exceedingly careless,” (or something to that effect).  That is the VERY definition of gross negligence.

Long Live the Constitution!

Comey Fired

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

So, the Left’s argument is this:

1 – Comey has poor judgement.  Interjecting himself into the election gave the election to Trump.

2 – Trump firing Comey is proof positive that Trump colluded with the Russians and is worse than Hitler.

I think you protest too much.  Is Comey competent or not?  Did he help Trump or not?  The argument, on its face, is laughable and shows just how partisan the whole thing is.  If Comey’s judgement is that bad, he should be fired.  Honestly, Comey should have gone a long time ago.  The reason he is still there (as far as I can see) is that Trump didn’t want to look like he was firing people over the investigation in order to protect himself.  Trump may not be able to escape those implications, unfortunately, as we all know how the media is going to portray this.

The big winner tonight is Comey.  He gets to sleep in tomorrow and put this nightmare of a job behind him.

Long Live the Constitution!

Hillary Blames Everyone Else

Posted by Troy on 3rd May 2017 in Political

Hillary wants to blame Comey and the Russians for her loss.  Just like her leaked emails, all this does is reaffirm that which everyone suspected.  She blames everyone else.  It’s never her fault.  I hate to break it to her, the Access Hollywood video had WAY more effect on the election than Comey and the Russians.  If it had not been for that video, maybe she would have lost a couple of extra states.  She is an unlikable human.  Her stances are out of step with the vast swath of America.  She is a known liar of the highest order.  She is dishonest as they come.  She lost her chance to be President when she lost the primary to Obama in 2008.

Deal with it.

Long Live the Constitution!
