The Party of Stupid

Roger Simon is merely stating the obvious when he says that Donald Trump has driven Democrats stark raving mad. (via Maggie’s Farm)

How can you tell that they have lost their minds? Simple… their commentary on yesterday’s released transcript was written before they read the text. When someone’s opinions are taken to be unimpeachable dogma, he will never allow a mere fact to interfere with his maniacal conviction. 

If you know what someone is going to say before he opens his mouth, you are dealing with someone who is mentally defective or just plain stupid.

Simon suggests that the Democrats believe that impeachment is the only way they will defeat Trump. But, he identifies another important reason. They are trying to distract the public from paying attention to the egregious crimes and misdemeanors committed by the Obama administration.

Kimberly Strassel exposed it last week when she saw the press being agog over the absurd House hearing with Corey Lewandowski while completely ignoring the testimony given by the Justice Department Inspector General, Michael Horowitz.  You see, Horowitz has integrity, he knows what he is talking about, he has written an extensive report into FISA abuse that is likely to make Democrats look very bad indeed. And we cannot have that.

Simon adds these important points:

Why have the Democrats, to put it bluntly, gone berserk? Why are they risking a backlash of cosmic proportions (other than appeasing their psychotically-inflamed base, of course)?

One, distraction. They live in absolute fear of the coming revelations about the Russia probe, from Inspector General Horowitz but even more from the DOJ's John Durham, who can actually put people in jail. The Dems know -- if they have a brain (and a few do) -- these revelations are likely to point up the line at the leaders of the Democratic Party all the way to President Obama. They were all involved to one degree or another with illegally spying on or undermining Trump and his administration and supporters before and after the election. The extent of this we are only beginning to understand.

To put it mildly, not good. Whether you call this treason is up to you, but you can be sure Middle America (i. e. those elusive independent voters) will not appreciate it.

We must also keep in mind that the Democratic Party is now being led by certifiable imbeciles. Yelling impeach, impeach, impeach is the limit of their mental capacity. As for the business of government, they are simply not up to the task. The issues are too complex. They require negotiation and compromise... capacities that they are singularly lacking.

Examine the issues that cry out for attention. Simon says:

The president is engaged in negotiations of tremendous significance with the Chinese and trying to neuter as much as possible the violent mullahs of Iran, but the Democrats don't care. In fact, they would prefer he fail, and seem to be doing everything in their power to make it so. To call that un-American is an understatement. Actually, it's despicable and deeply immoral, not just for the citizens of this country, but for the world. What children!

"Whether you call this treason is up to you..."

The correct word is "sedition." It's really not treason, and using treason as the standard -- treason is a capital offense, after all -- risks being hyperbole amidst the cosmic hurricane of hyperbole we deal with every day. The right word is sedition. Look it up.

The problem with the Ukraine call is not the Biden bit. It's all about Trump's reference to Crowdstrike. That's what has Democrats, the Deep State and the Obamatrons spooked. Crowdstrike is all tied to the Democrat shenanigans with Hillary's secret server.

I believe the Democrats are doing all this for three reasons:
1. They have a lunatic base that is completely out of control BAMN
2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is near the end of her natural life
3. The upcoming FISA report will be damning

The impeachment angle serves all three pieces well:
1. It's the red meat their base desperately craves
2. Democrats will say a sitting POTUS under impeachment cannot possibly have his SCOTUS nomination confirmed
3. It distracts from the real sedition the FISA abuse represents

I also suspect that Washington, D.C. is concerned because this all risks bringing down any remaining faith the "Middle America" Simon references has in government. The FISA/DOJ-NSD/FBI/CIA/IRS/BATFE scandals are all-encompassing and a brute-force conspiracy against republican representative government. They weaponized the most powerful elements of the Federal government against regular citizens. All these moves were meant to disenfranchise, silence and disarm the people of the United States and are a direct, coordinated assault on the Constitution.

The self-congratulation of the morally magnificent must come to end. Washington is full of fraudulent fools who think they are better and smarter than the rest of us. That's not just condescension, it's contempt.

You just have to love the latest SCANDAL, SCANDAL, SCANDAL!!! alerts about Trump. This has happened several times. Trump is done. Trump is doomed. It is all over for Trump. And yet days later all the hyperventilating stops and people realize there's no there there. And this "crying wolf" pattern is wearing on people. I suspect the American people will have no trust in the Big Enemedia by the time the 2020 election season gets going. And it will be their own fault entirely.

You wanna impeach Trump amidst this strong economy over a phone call to UKRAINE? By all means... Go for it. Do it. Please.

Echoing IAC, how many of us have any (ANY, starting with the most microscopic bit) faith or trust in our media today, which seems to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dem party?
