As senate Democrats wind up for their impeachment pitch, the theatre is reminiscent of an old time pro wrestling venue—everybody knew it was fake, contrived, and rigged for an outcome. Everybody, except for the rabid fans who would divorce their entire family and friends if the integrity of the match was called into question. The entire fiasco, sadly, is more akin to communist dictatorship railroading a political opponent or dissenter into prison or an execution just to make a point. In this charade, the democrats are hoping to make legal the political assassination of a former president with the stated goal that Donald Trump would never be able to again run for or hold public office. They are that scared of him.
Now the Democrat Impeachment Managers are threatening that Trump testify at the trial otherwise face “strong adverse inference regarding President Trump’s actions (and inactions) on January 6.” In a response to Trump’s lawyers, the Democratic Party managers also said that everything that has been charged in the Articles of Impeachment are true and that all defenses against these charges are without merit. They say this impeachment is Constitutional—not by citing any Constitutional or judicial precedent, but because they say it is Constitutional. They say that Trump’s First Amendment rights do not apply because he purposely incited insurrection by continuously lying that the election results were rigged and whipping up the January 6 crowd to storm the Capitol. They can say what they want because they have the votes.
Problem for the Democrats is that some of their argument has eroded in the days ahead of the trial. It is reported that the FBI has documented several of the so-called insurgents had pre-planned the action assault on the Capitol, diminishing the claim that Trump incited mob violence. Additionally, there is the question of the election itself. Time Magazine reported about a corporate-labor-leftist “handshake” to “protect” the election. Time’s Molly Ball wrote, “Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws… They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time…After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result.”
My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell also produced a documentary exposing election integrity issues. The Supreme Court also will hear election fraud cases this year. The Epoch Times reports that historian and Hoover Institute Fellow Victor Davis Hanson says the impeachment trial is no less “performance art” very similar to the public shaming methods used by the Chinese Communist Party during their “cultural revolution” in the decade from 1966 to 1976. The Nineth Commandment is found in Exodus 20:16, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor.” You’ll see this commandment broken a lot this week.
