Dem's are Impeaching Trump for Wrong Reasons, and It Will Backfire

This video from the Truth Factory argues that Trump is not guilty of withholding aid to Ukraine for political reasons, and that in fact the aid was released to Ukraine with no quid pro quo. But, ironically, Biden was guilty of exactly what Trump is being charged with.

Writing as Mitteldorf (not the Truth Cat), I have to wonder why, after all the criminal and impeachable things that Trump has done...why have the Democrats focused the impeachment hearings on a charge of which he is actually innocent? I would like to see Trump depart from the White House just as fervently as you would, but I can't see the impeachment hearings contributing to that end. IMHO, they are likely to energize Trump supporters, while embarrassing the Democrats who are trying to run against him.

I have noted in the past that the Democratc leadership sometimes behaves as if they want to lose. For example, in rigging the 2016 primary, they ensured that their candidate would be the only Democrat who could possibly lose to Trump. For example, they have refused for years to take simple counter-measures to secure the integrity of the vote count, while one election after another has been stolen from them via electronic manipulation. Perhaps the impeachment circus was concocted by these same internal saboteurs, DINOs, moles who have infiltrated the Blue party in order to keep it down.

  • Why don't we impeach Trump for bombing Syria in defiance of the War Powers Act?
  • Why don't we impeach Trump for denying due process to thousands of refugees?
  • Why don't we impeach Trump for assassinating an Iranian general, risking a huge new war in the Middle East?
  • Why don't we impeach Trump for eviscerating the EPA?

Any of these would be legally and morally justified, and what is more, the public would understand them and rally to support the process. Instead, we have a hugely divisive process with the nation split 50-50. Consider what a failure this is in a country where Trump has a 42% approval rating.

There is plenty of clear evidence that totally disproves this right wing message. Why did you post this here? it is a pretty straight up collection of garbage right wing talking points. If your goal was to discuss the message in the title then you should spell it out, not depend on people watching a 32 minute video that starts off with Republican talking points.

It is certainly against the Democrats, but hardly "right wing". Please list some of the "right wing talking points" so that I can know what you're talking about.

Sorry, Rob, what we are all searching for is the truth. I think it's a mistake to attempt to discriminate by classifying certain remarks as "right wing" or "left wing". That only adds to the divisiveness that is rampant at this time. I think Josh's post makes important points. Impeaching Trump for the wrong reasons is definitely going to backfire on the Democrats.

I think the reason the Democrats are not impeaching Trump for all of his other crimes is because they have all been complicit to one degree or another and have as a result been implicated.

It is all spectacle. It makes no sense but it keeps everyone thinking that the wheels are turning and those folks in congress, the FBI and the CIA will save us from something or another. Basic facts in the vid agree with where my investigations have led me. But facts with that much spin are not informative. The real con of the cat vid is the garbage that the repubs are any better. One sided, low blows against the totally corrupt dems does not make Trump and the repubs not totally corrupt. Two factions of the War Party. I am sure there are think tanks guiding the story line to get maximum mind numbness out of this. People on both sides are being made to believe, truly believe that 2+2=5. I see it being done to well educated friends. Call them on it and they list a bunch of details that add up to nothing. Goebbels would be proud! I wonder if Orwell's spirit would laugh or cry.

I'd guess this is not totally on point for this article. But I found little parts of it to be interesting and apropos to the big picture. I also don't think religious or non-religious subscription detracts from the essence.

Really good video, Janet. I agree with all he said. Also agree that it's very important to look at the big picture, and try to connect the dots.

One very big dot is the banking elites who are calling the shots behind the scene. Trump is just a puppet doing their bidding, which includes Israel too. I think the only answer is to try to spread what little bits of the truth that we have with others who are willing to listen.


I also want to say I was glad that John mentioned weather modification

in connection with the fires in Australia. There's more going on here than most people are aware of. Here's a link to a video on this issue for anyone who's interested.

Yes, weather modification is real. Weaponized weather is real. The ridiculously resilient high pressure area in California is real. The moisture headed for California from the Pacific ends up being routed around California making California ripe for wildfires. That plus the geoengineering of chemical spraying from aircraft primes California for wildfires. There is a "plan to burn up Northern California." Agenda 21 no doubt is the reason fires are burning up certain areas in California. I had planned on submitting an article about controlling and weaponizing weather. Now, I am not sure I will. I have had to deal with the politics of this website. Both JFK and LBJ talked about how important it would be and they would be able to do it ... control the weather.

Thanks for this reply, and for offering more details about weather modification and weaponization. I should have done that, but I didn't want to come on too strong. I hope you will go ahead and submit your article anyway.

I will think about submitting an article but I will have to be in the right mood. My attitude about everything is in a state of flux right now. Thanks for showing an interest.

Yes, there are at least twenty more "Trump Articles of Impeachment" that are 'ready to go' but it's congress alone that ultimately decides 'what they want' to 'impeach the president' for - by 'majority vote' the House Democrats had voted "YEA" on Trump's 'abuse of power' and 'obstruction of congress' effectively voting he's 'unfit' to serve in office ("it will stain Trump's presidency forever with an official vote of his unfitness"). #ImpeachmentRules.
