Op-ed: 
A Political Upheaval in the Making  
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio
This is really a sad day -- a big show…America needs to hear from the witnesses; and, we didn't get to hear from them here. This was a kangaroo court -- outrageous to put the country through this!”
- Rep. Louie Gohmert, December 13, 2019
Outrageous puts it mildly...actually criminal if you ask me for when a man...a president...is charged and then quasi-convicted of crimes his accusers know well he did not commit, the accusers themselves then become guilty of railroading an innocent man. And after witnessing last week's Judiciary Committee's fabrications coupled with its parade of overtly partisan driven anything but impartial constitutional scholars, now has me wondering if the sum total of their collective committee intelligence doesn't hoover around borderline moronic, if even that.
If even that indeed for the truth is that what the Judiciary Committee did...and did on the heels of Adam Schiff's jokingly ridiculous House Intelligence Impeachment Freak Show...is actually a slap in the face to the 62,984,828 of we American citizens who proudly voted for Donald J. Trump in 2016...as these Democrat miscreants think our IQ's must be collectively as low as they've now proven theirs to be.
You can fool some of the people some of the time”...as part of the old saying goes, but the only ones truly being fooled are the Democrats on both said committees for recent political polls have shown that the American people are not buying what they're trying to sell. And what exactly are the Democrats trying so hard to sell...how about the “weaponization of the process of impeachment” itself...a process used as their means of seeking revenge for Trump's political take-down of Hillary Clinton...the Democrats hoped for second coming of the original “anointed one”...as in Barack HUSSEIN Obama then being the one who would, if she had won, pull Hillary's presidential strings.

And the “weaponization of impeachment” was actually foreseen in Alexander Hamilton's March 7, 1788 essay in Federalist 65, the sixty-fifth essay within The Federalist Papers." This is where the Founders and Framers attempting to “insulate the impeachment process” from partisan politics, with words warning of "the greatest danger that the decision will be relegated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt."

And this, unfortunately, is exactly what's happening to President Trump. But do know that this specific impeachment is not just about Trump's win, Hillary Clinton's loss, or Obama's what would have been his de facto third term in office, for this goes back even further to when in the 2000 presidential election George W. Bush was ultimately declared the winner in a razor close election against Billy-Boy Clinton's former V.P. Al Gore...the election forever deemed the “hanging chads” fiasco...the election call waiting around in the political wings festering for years for just the right time and for just the right Republican president to use impeachment against.

Now setting a precedent that could and probably will be used against any duly elected sitting president whom the opposing party does not approve of, partisan driven impeachment could and will most likely remain but a sour grapes bitch slapping” of sorts as witnessed by the two articles of impeachment now having been leveled against President Trump by the very party whose titular head, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, has previously stated that “impeachment must be bipartisan.” “Abuse of Power” and “Obstruction of Congress”...both charges solely vivindictive in nature, yet the fact remains that President Trump committed no crime for no crime even existed...especially nothing that reaches the constitutional mandate of “high crimes and misdemeanors.

And while President Trump surely did not commit any such grievous acts key Democrats and certain departments and personnel did, with abject “Abuse of Power” actually occurring at the Department of Justice and most especially at the FBI who together violated the law to obtain all of the Carter Page spy warrants targeting President Trump...the very same warrants the FISA court has now been shown to have issued via no less than 17 missteps. And let's not forget how the DNC paid good money to “set Trump up” via the fact-less, never substantiated, and ever so lying Steele Dossier.

But more overtly seen in regards to the “Obstruction of Congress” charge...a charge more in line with both Adam Sciff's and Jerry Nadler's behavior then it ever will be President Trump's...was witnessed by what occurred in both the House Intel Committee hearings as well as in the more recent hearings and vote to impeach taken by the House Judiciary Committee. How so...neither committee chairman allowed opposing witnesses to be called to testify let alone the whistleblower himself for neither man could risk Republicans exposing said whistleblower or the hearings itself for the sour grapes partisan sham, charade, farce, witch hunt, kangaroo court, and/or political coup that we bore witness to...pick the name of your choosing as they all fit like a glove.

Now for some specific details regarding both “Articles of Impeachment” and how they actually relate to both the committee chairs and not to President Trump. First, let's start with Adam Schiff and the fact that he not only “abused power” in his making the House Intel Committee hearings strictly a one-sided partisan affair, but that he also “abused power” afforded him as committee chair by bold-faced lying on national television about his not having met with, let alone knowing, who the whistleblower is. But the truth is that Adam Schiff not only knows and has always known who the whistleblower is but that he probably even helped write CIA whistleblower Eric Ciaramella's...oops...official complaint against President Trump...a complaint written in “legalize”...a complaint supposedly written by a person who supposedly admitted in the past to being totally unfamiliar with the language of the law...the very language needed to file such an official complaint.

And yet Adam Schiff remained adamant while the hearings were ongoing that neither he himself nor anyone on his staff knew who back then the whistleblower was or who the whistleblower is now. And this was constantly repeated by Schiff no matter that we already knew that his staff had met with Ciaramella just this past August. And yet Schiff, to date, still refuses to answer questions about what he knew about Ciaramella and when exactly he knew it claiming as chairman that he does not have to answer questions as he's not been subpoenaed nor placed under oath to do so.

Arrogance personified I'd say. And let's not forget Schiff's facing the cameras to say that he's been fighting against impeachment for over a year when the truth is that it's been he who has been calling for Trump's impeachment from the very day he officially won the presidency.

And Schiff's “power abuse” also spills over into “obstructing Congress,” again via the House Intel hearings being but a partisan one-sided affair. Remember, Republicans technically had every legal right to call witnesses of their choosing, including whistleblower Eric Charamella as well as Joe Biden and his son Hunter, the two men who remain the crux of what was supposed to be a fair and impartial investigation of a president Democrats claimed overstepped his bounds via a phone call...a phone call whose transcript they continue to erroneously claim was tampered with. But how could these hearings be fair... how could Congress be given both sides of the story upon which to base their vote if only one side was allowed to be presented. Simply, Congress cannot for in Schiff's denying key facts and actual witnesses to the events in question from testifying, it now forces Congress to base their voting upon second and third hand hearsay...hearsay presented by partisan shills. And if that's not a deliberate and with malice intended “Obstruction of Congress” than I don't know what is.

Now as for Jerry Nadler, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee...a committee with the same lack of impartiality as Schiff's House Intel Committee...Nadler “abused power” and “obstructed Congress” in the exact same way that Adam Schiff did in his also refusing to allow any witnesses to testify that the Republicans wanted called including Adam Schiff himself, the very author of the report that outlines the findings from both the public hearings and closed-door interviews conducted by impeachment investigators, thus making the Judiciary hearings not only one-sided but causing each and every vote taken to be predetermined...as in a 23 to 17 party line vote. And this is the very thing the a fore mentioned Alexander Hamilton feared most concerning “strength of parties” instead of “demonstrating innocence or guilt” when impeachment of the president was felt to be the country's only recourse.



It's way passed time to bring “Abuse of Power” and “Obstruction of Congress” charges against both Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler and not even allow a vote to be taken in the Senate...which would be the next step after Wednesday's upcoming House vote...for being tasked with heading a committee does not mean one has the right to run said committee like a tyrannical dictator out of control.

And these same charges also need to be brought against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her own words that have now come back to haunt. Saying in a televised interview that the Democrats have been working on impeaching President Trump for the past 2-1/2 years...2-1/2 years when the official call for impeachment was presented as Trump asking for favors in a July 25, 2019 phone call with Ukranian President Zelenski...thus proving this entire process...hearings as well as votes...has been based upon what's called "false representation."



The entire impeachment case against President Trump needs to be thrown out and certain Democrat arrests made based upon their maliciously deliberate “false representation” of charges, coupled with unproven ethical violations being made against a duly-elected sitting president. Allowing this farce to even be voted on in the House is bad enough, but to allow it to go to vote in the Senate gives what is actually a partisan driven political coup a modicum of credence it does not deserve. And yet the process will probably be seen through for while Republicans are united with President Trump they still...save for a vocal few...lack the courage to stop this nonsense from going any further.

So with the Democrats now having put the final nail in their 2020 political coffins...the only good thing coming from this total waste of time and taxpayer dollars...we now see some moderate Democrats realizing that this call for impeachment is not only based upon false accusations but that it's dividing our country in a way we haven't seen in years. And this in turn has given rise to the fact that 31 red district Democrats who are the most vulnerable in next November election are still undecided as to how they will vote.

But some are truly brave and are doing the right thing. Such is the case with first-term lawmaker Jeff Van Drew from New Jersey, who it seems will be quitting the party and be putting an R next to his name before Wednesday's House vote. Remember, impeachment remains all about numbers and all that's needed is for 17 Democrats to vote “no” thus leaving impeachment to die in the House before it will assuredly die in the Senate. And some of those 31 red district Democrats, like Michigan’s Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens; South Carolina’s Joe Cunningham; New Jersey’s Andy Kim and Mikie Sherrill; New York’s Anthony Brindisi; and Oklahoma’s Kendra Horn have not yet decided on how they will vote. Sometimes it only takes one to start the ball rolling...only time will tell. But know that with any defections the Democrats have lost the battle for unless the vote is unanimous...which it will not be...the wedge they hoped to drive into the Republican party will have been driven into the Democrat party instead.

And as for the polls earlier mentioned, those too have shifted away from impeachment what with the way the inquiry and hearings were handled...with it's rush to convict along with its abuse of the process being solely partisan in nature...and with the economy on strong footing and with the jobs numbers continuing to grow we now see numbers the Democrats never expected to see especially with most polls showing that Trump will win the 2020 election no matter whom the Democrats run against him. Even the left-leaning Washington Post shows that in the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, an average of 44% of those recently surveyed supported impeachment while 51% did not proving that Independents are now coming over to the no impeachment, Trump 2020 side, in record numbers.

But when all is said and done, the only thing that truly matters is that come Tuesday, November 6, 2020 every registered Republican and every registered Independent, along with the Democrat moderate masses, get out and vote for the Trump/Pence ticket if for no other reason than if they lose socialism will become your, mine, and our new norm.
