Why has the impeachment theater that has been entertaining the media swells these past six weeks begun to feel like a bad movie of the week? Tyrant-in-chief Adam Schiff has been thrilling the Left with his anti-constitutional, Kafkaesque show trial, leaking and tweaking snippets of his irrelevant not-witnesses’ testimony in order to bend public opinion to his malevolent anti-Trump obsession.
We can all suss out the Schiff/Pelosi agenda: they hope to prevent Trump’s re-election by convincing the American people that he is somehow tainted by a fog of nefarious activities both before and after the 2016 election. Trump is guilty of exactly nothing impeachable, and they all know it, but he is an outsider in their D.C. club of self-appointed privileged insiders, and that is what they cannot, will not, tolerate. The interloper must be metaphorically slain in as public a manner as possible.
But just who in this current doomsday crisis the Left has imagined is going to be hoist with his own petard? It is beginning to seem as though it may be Speaker Pelosi and the detestable Adam Schiff. It is beginning to feel as if our hate-filled, intolerant Left is being set up with a long-game play. If so, the denouement will be delicious.
First Nadler and then Schiff have conducted this so-called inquiry for weeks now. Nadler’s hearings were an embarrassment, so Pelosi turned the gavel over to Schiff. Big mistake unless she is in on the con. His ridiculous secret depositions are a joke — meant to frighten Trump and his supporters, which is absolutely not working. Now we have been privy to open testimony of three of his chosen not witnesses who contributed exactly nothing to Schiff’s tale of corruption.
It is all backfiring since they are trying to impeach Trump for what Obama/Biden actually did. We have all seen Biden’s little bit of bragging about threatening Ukraine that $1B would be withheld unless a certain prosecutor was fired within six hours. That prosecutor was charged with investigating the corrupt Burisma energy company on whose board sat Hunter Biden. Biden intervened in Ukraine’s state government to protect the bribery that was blatantly making his own family fabulously wealthy.
And Ukraine was not the only foreign nation that the Bidens, the Kerrys, the Pelosis, the Clintons, and the Feinsteins tapped for millions of dollars that went directly into their own pockets. See Peter Schweizer’s books, Clinton Cash and Secret Empires. Ambrose Bierce wrote that “Politics is the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”
Surely, Schiff knows this. He has a Ukraine connection himself: arms-dealer Igor Pasternak. Schiff is as bought and paid for as the rest of the players in this oh, so devious Deep State plot to unseat a duly elected president because he is not part of their noxious club of get-rich-behind-the-scenes pols. Every one of them should be investigated with the spite with which Trump has been scrutinized. In a just world, they would all be on trial for both corruption and treason. read more
