(I really can't put up another picture of that broad, for fear of crashing the server.)
Honorable? I'd have expected at least "Execrable". Maybe that's on the envelope.
Peak Stupidity has tried its damndest to ignore the Bread & Circuses operation that has taken up the last 3 years of 24/7 airtime. At this point, I suppose the rubber meets the road and we'll see if the kibosh can be put on this charade. However, the D-squad has already won, just in that they have distracted President Trump and a whole lot of the American people for 3/4 of his first presidential term (yeah, I think this impeachment effort will bring out the vote in '20).
I just read the President's 6-page letter to Congress-scold Nancy Pelosi, lambasting her and the Blue-squad for abusing a last-resort power that was not meant to be used for political means. Our favorite literary pundit, Miss Ann Coulter, just explained this better than Trump did in the letter (see Article I—Remove This Beast From My Sight!), making me wonder if she's back in his good graces and had some influence on the very decent writing in it.
I am so glad to see some writing out of President Trump more serious and readable than one of his tweets. Ann Coulter aside, he probably did get a good deal of help in wording this letter, as most Presidents have.* This letter does go around in circles somewhat, though not nearly as much as his campaign "speeches" did and still do. That makes me think Trump may have written a bunch of it. Here's a good excerpt:
Any member of Congress who votes in support of impeachment—against every shred of truth, fact, evidence, and legal principle—is showing how deeply they revile the voters and how truly they detest America’s Constitutional order. Our Founders feared the tribalization of partisan politics, and you are bringing their worst fears to life.Of course, as he writes, this impeachment effort has been going on since a week or so after the '16 election. I will never know, and the President didn't write about, how much of his time was wasted getting distracted by this vengeful effort.
One other thought came up, after I read the following:
I would think that you would personally be appalled by these revelations, because in your press conference the day you announced impeachment, you tied the impeachment effort directly to the completely discredited Russia Hoax, declaring twice that “all roads lead to Putin,” when you know that is an abject lie. I have been far tougher on Russia than President Obama ever even thought to be.See, now the Cold War has been over for 30 years. It's not the Soviet Union, it's Russia. Why do we have to be tough on Russia to begin with?
Has the 3-year-long impeachment effort also been pushed by the Neocons as reverse psychology? This guy does have more ego than strategic smarts. Could it be that the tie-in to the ludicrous "collusion by Russia" was done at the behest of the Neocons, in order to get Trump to get tougher on what should be an ally country in order to show the D-squad up?
* As good as Ronald Reagan's own words were, from back in his Illinois radio station days, through his years at GE, and on to politics, he still had (unfortunately) the moronic would-be bimbo Peggy Newman to write speeches for him. Why??
