For over two years, perhaps closer to three, the American left has sought to destroy, unseat, impeach, and now imprison Donald Trump, even though he has committed no crime and obstructed no course of justice. He has in fact been the most transparent president in modern history. To satisfy the schemers who invented the Russia collusion hoax, he turned over millions of documents, gave access to hundreds of witnesses, and cooperated fully with what was well and truly a witch hunt from the outset.
From the moment Trump won the 2016 election, they vowed to see him impeached! The Democrats, all of them in Congress, seem to have forgotten everything they ever knew, if they ever bothered to know, about the Constitution, due process, innocent until proven guilty, and all that. They don’t know, don’t care. And they are always confident in the ignorance of such things among those who call themselves Democrats. They are comfortable in their knowledge that their disciples will swallow whole whatever nonsense they spew. Wednesday, it was Nancy Pelosi claiming she “does not want to impeach President Trump, she wants to see him in jail.” There are no words that adequately describe the malevolence of this horrid woman. To call her Machiavellian is too kind.
That American leftists behave like spoiled toddlers is an understatement. They did not get what they wanted and expected on election day 2016, so they have been acting out every day since like incorrigible brats. They have used and abused every conceivable trick in the book of crooks and liars: frame the man as a traitor to his nation, accuse him of all manner of criminal activity, the whole nine yards. Doesn’t matter if the accusations are all lies. One of them is sure to stick. Take out his family; accuse and set up his friends. They’ve left no stone unturned. And still he stands, tall and proud and remarkably successful.
Trump is like Melville’s white whale. The congressional Democrats are a collective Ahab, pathetic and self-destructive. Determined to destroy what hounds them by its very existence and survival, they never learned the rule of holes: to stop digging. For Pelosi, who has clearly lost control of her drove of sheep in the House, this once powerful woman has succumbed to her basest instincts: destroy the opposition at all costs. This time, the cost may be, as it was for Ahab, her ultimate humiliation and that of her party.
