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!

Benghazi Cover-up Fallout

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2013 in Political

There will be none.  As I predicted, here are the facts:

Terrorists attacked the embassy.  The administration knew it was terrorists and lied to say it was over a protest.  They lied to protect the administration’s narrative that we can nation build effectively using Obama’s methods and to protect Obama himself during the election.

If this event would have happened weeks before the election with Bush as President, the media would have gone crazy with conspiracy theories and 30 minutes specials and all kinds of things.  However, it was O-breezy, so they took it easy.

So, why did they do it?  I don’t believe for a second that the military couldn’t have responded in that time frame.  I also can’t believe that Obama was not informed about an embassy being attacked and given a list of options.  Here are the options that I believe were on the table:

1) Full military support.  This would have been an act of war.  Additional people would have died.  There would have been collateral damage on the Libyan side.  This would have been rejected for a few reasons:  It would have destroy the “footsteps in the sand” narrative that we can intervene, get out, and the world would be a better place.  It would have started a war which would have ticked off his base and cost him the election.  Finally, killing civilians while trying to save our civilians would have tainted US-Libyan relations for years to come.

2)  Armed drone strikes.  They were in the air with cameras, why not a couple of missiles?  Again, an act of war.  This would have tainted the relationship between the US government and Libyan government as it would have ignored their national sovereignty (odd how Obama only cares about honoring national sovereignty when it comes to backwater countries and not our own) and our agreement that our drones in their airspace would be unarmed.  It would have basically all the same problems of the first option excluding less civilians dead and possibly not seen as starting a war, but pert-near it.

3)  Do nothing.  A few Americans would die.  We could turn those into martyrs (true believers always love martyrs be it Communists or religious fanatics).  It could be used to shore up support internationally.  It would so that we have restraint.  It wouldn’t play well at home, but a few quick lies with a compliant media, and that would be negated.  All they had to do is just let the few Americans die quietly, and all would be alright.  As such, Obama went to bed.  He had a long day of campaigning, after all.

So, why do I think that nothing will happen?  After all, Nixon was impeached because a couple of his underlings broke into the Democratic headquarters.  He was impeached for tying to cover up a break in.  Why can’t Obama be impeached because his administration lied and failed to intervene on behalf of Americans killed by terrorists on US soil (remember, embassies are US soil)?  For two reasons.  The first reason is because the media is going to go all out to protect their child star.  In 2084, I argue that communists infiltrated the media to do just that, to color whatever story they have to suit that agenda.  This is no different.  They will say exactly what they are saying: “There’s no smoking gun here!  Why, it sounds like the military made the call!  etc etc”  They won’t focus on what is really the PROBLEM.  The problem is that the administration actively mislead the US people to help Obama get re-elected.  There was no other justification for lying.  By not focusing on the fact that this is the problem and WHY he lied, this will merely blow away.  The second reason he will never be impeached is because he’s black.  As soon as ANYONE moves to try to impeach him, they will say it is because he is black and the GOP hates blacks, and everyone is racist.  He could piss on the Constitution on live TV, and that’s still exactly how it will play out, and the Republicans are way too scared to stand up to him because of that.

My prediction?  Nothing will happen.  The media will protect him.  Without public outrage drummed up by the media, Republicans will lack the will do do anything to anyone in the administration including Hillary Clinton.

Long Live the Constitution!

Texas Representative Steve Stockman Threatens Obama with Impeachment

Posted by Troy on 14th January 2013 in Current Events, Political

He must read Swampfoxpress!  Thank you Steve Stockman!  Yes, when a President attempts to curtail a right guaranteed by the bill of rights (in this case, gun control) by Executive Order (bypassing all other branches of government all together), then we have a dictator.  Not even the combined powers of government can legitimately take away our rights.  That has to be done by a Constitutional amendment, but when one person does it, he is a dictator and an enemy of the state and cannot be trusted in the office of the President.  Of course, anyone voting for impeachment will be branded instantly as a racist.  Oh well.

Long Live the Constitution!
