Impeachment ‘present’ readied by Democrats
As we approach the Christmas holiday, it seems the Democrats in Congress are going to give the American people a gift, but it is not one that seems to be very popular. The oldest political party in the world is going to gift-wrap an impeachment vote on the floor of the US House of Representatives this week. In fact, by the time this editorial is read, it might have been done already. The vote will be the culmination of a three-year temper tantrum by the Dems, who have proven nothing regarding impeachment, but everything regarding their ability – or suitability – to lead the nation.
To call the impeachment proceedings in both the Intelligence Committee of the House, run by California Rep. Adam Schiff, or that in the Judiciary Committee, run by New York Rep. Jerald Nadler, fair, proper and fact-driven, would be a mockery to terms. They have been nothing but a cavalcade of left-wing academics with axes to grind and professional bureaucrats looking to protect their turf. Nothing, absolutely nothing, has been factual.
But in the process we’ve learned something about so-called “progressive” governance, and the media that clamors for it.
As we’ve said before, the basis of Progressivism from the early 20th Century onward has been the distrust of the average voter, and the belief that a benign class of experts and operatives would rule the nation. After all, the rubes that vote can’t be trusted to do the right thing. In his early statements, for example, former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg has as much as said so, and anyone looking at his record while mayor will see a pattern of top-down governance “for their own good.”
Indeed, the socialist model that so many in the Democratic Party espouse is because the “deplorables” cannot be allowed to rule themselves. It takes a paternalistic group of politicians to show them the way. This will be done by taxation of things they shouldn’t have, control of health care, and divvying out “free stuff” in the form of education, child care, etc. No, Miss Ocasio-Cortez, these are not public goods.
The media, meanwhile, has shown that it has ceased to “speak truth to power” and did it long before Donald J. Trump was elected. We must remind our readers that for eight years anything negative about Barack Hussein Obama was as radioactive to the media as saying anything nice about Trump is now. Despite the obvious use of governmental authority against its enemies, incompetence in world affairs and wasting the government’s treasury, nothing got past the censors in the media.
The mainstream media is a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party because they espouse the same ideologies, attended the same schools, and live in the same neighborhoods.
The impeachment has set in aspic the facts that corruption in the Democratic Party, the federal bureaucracy and the media is working against the needs and desires of the electorate. Trump stands in the way of these actors to remake the nation, and set it into the machinery of a globalist, socialist solar system.
We are eerily reminded of the words of George H.W. Bush, a globalist, following the first Iraq War concerning the emergence of a “new world order.” That is, in fact, what we are seeing today unfold before our eyes.
The impeachment is part of that lurch to the left.
