Fake News Clown Show

This morning, ABC News was cock-a-doodle-doing that two other minions with no firsthand knowledge of anything, had corroborated Amb. Sondland's assertion that the president had violated some imaginary law (which the Democrats cannot name or describe, but they're somehow nevertheless sure it must have happened).

The clip above, wherein Rep Mike Turner sticks a knife through the heart of the Dumocrats' star witness, and then twists it, hard, lays bare that corroboration of someone's fever-swamp imaginings does not leap into being "evidence" in any court not presided over by marsupials.

It is merely proof of a shared delusion, and a conspiracy to commit a coup.

That IS against the law.

"If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both." - 18 U.S. Code §2384
Note that happily, there's no ambiguity about this; that the mere act of conspiracy by any two persons anywhere meets the specification of guilt; and that there's no magical "except for members of Congress" clause hidden in there anywhere.

No where, whatsoever.

That makes Adam Schiff-for-brains, everyone who voted to open these hearings on the House Intelligence Committee, and all the witnesses called thus far co-conspirators, and the president is fully within his legal right to direct AG Barr to have those members of Congress and their flunkies, and all the witnesses doing this Seinfeld sham impeachment inquiry ("an inquiry about nothing") wholly without any of the basic Constitutional protections guaranteed to all Americans, arrested, indicted, and prosecuted for sedition.

We wish he would cut to the chase, and simply do so.
We would pay good money to see that on the boob tube day in and day out for the next 9 months.

I'd have to check the math, but rounding up a sufficient chunk of Congress and putting them under lock and key would flip the House, too, leaving Nancy Alzheimer's as the overnight new Minority Leader,  and Kevin McCarthy(R) the new Speaker of the House.

It is a consummation devoutly to be wished.

Wouldn't her Worshipfulness Mizz Nancy Alzheimers be in prison as well (or, as I would prefer, "dancing in the air")?

Grog said...

+ 10 for Angantyr's comment, she and several dozen others need an extended vacation.

“We wish he would simply cut to the chase.”

The Chasers are chasing their own flabby,bug-eyed selves at this point.
Please,let them continue.

"by force"

"OR by force"

"conspire to overthrow " does not require an element of force.

They will get away with this for a very simple reason. Those at the top of the food chain want this distraction, to keep you from wondering why the economy is imploding. Don't look at the bank bail-out's, patriotic citizens, look over at your Boy Trump, unfairly attacked by communists!

Aesop said...

The economy here is not imploding, yet, which isn't at all the same thing as saying it won't.

James M Dakin said...

Shall we just call the economy a zombie, then? :)

Aesop said...

No; it's not undead.

I could go with "Dead Man Walking".

It's just waiting for someone to throw the switch.

The only question is when.

As you semi-frequently are wont to say, things that cannot continue, won't.

A semi-parallel to that is that things that will not happen, won't.

To achieve the suggested prosecution successfully, you would need a house and senate that would refuse to bend to the cacophony of the left, including genuine threats and/or acts against R members and families, all protected and encouraged by the media.

Most of them fold fast enough by being shunned and dis-invited to their social circles.

I cannot imagine a situation whereby the GOP stands shoulder-to-shoulder and resolute, and willing to take no prisoners and give no quarter. Without that, Barr would be left swinging in the wind.

Here again the Demonrats are guilty of exactly what they're trying to impugn President Trump with. Can't wait for the Articles of Impeachment to be drafted and promulgated to The People. Then comes the real shit show with the IG report in early December.

The US Economy is doing OK.

Compare it to the European, Asian, or South American Economy, and you will see we are doing great, relatively.
(Don't even bother looking for Africa.).
Our northern neighbor Canada has an oil industry that is collapsing as their own government has decided it must be destroyed.
Our Southern neighbor Mexico has an economy supported by, and preyed upon by its drug cartels.

The biggest difference in the last few years between the US and the rest of the world?
President Trump's regulatory and tax policies.

Does anyone think Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders would make our economy grow faster?

"...devoutly to be wished." Aye, brother.
I too would be glued to the awesome spectacle of justice rendered. The traitors deserve prosecution and if convicted; the traitors death, publicly administered.
T'would restore "full faith and confidence" in addition to plain " making the world a better place"
