Politics At It’s Best!

November 20, 2019
By Ed Parsons - Editor , Tyler Star News

Covering the latest impeachment hearings is much better than "DAYS OF OUR LIVES" it's total nonsense. It's a real fairy tale to think or actually believe it really matters. There is no doubt, it's a foregone conclusion, it is really going to happen, the House of Representatives will impeach President Donald Trump.

Say What? Oh yeah they are going to really hold him accountable. It will be a formal indictment, the articles of impeachment will be detailed, everything will come out. These high crimes against the people of this nation, the unconstitutional breach of his executive power, is all but sure to bring the misdemeanor crimes to light.

As certain as it is, it is also certain the whole debacle is uncalled for and the United States Senate will not convict him. It's a witch hunt in disguise, it's the last straw attempt to discredit one of America's great all-time leaders. Not the great orator some believe we need, but a great President who holds the highest office in the land with dignity and respect for the country. Says Republicans; not so, says Democrats

Three other times in the history of America the House has held proceedings of impeachment against the President. Two of those attempts to prosecute were unsuccessful and flawed from the beginning. The third was interrupted by Nixon's resignation. During those proceedings the House presented a case which was persuasive and detailed, and justified the process. Those proceedings serve as a model for proper and successful hearings today.

The House holds the upper hand in the first vote. The Senate is superior in the second. So! sorry about your luck, you can't win. And the taxpayer, law abiding citizen loses again. The only good is the entertainment at a very high price. It seems as the Democrats were wise to be cautious about setting all this in motion, but they followed through, now will it backfire or just be a total waste of time and more tax dollars.

In the end, though, it also had to be done. Mr Trump's conduct made that action inescapable; the constitution made it necessary. It seems likely at this early stage that the impeachment of Mr Trump will play out predictably. The House will impeach. The Senate will acquit. Mr Trump will claim a great victory. Both big parties will be fired up for November, and the voters will then give the final verdict.

To many Democrats, guided by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the impeachment inquiry is both an examination of Trump's corrupt treatment of Ukraine and the culmination of their longstanding efforts to prove he was unfit from the start to govern the nation.

To many Republicans, and to Trump, impeachment is a high-profile setup orchestrated by frustrated Democrats who expected former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia to rid the country of a president they dislike.

The Impeachment Hearings is like watching Wheel of Fortune where the puzzle is completely solved but contestants keep guessing letters. The Democrats set an impeachment trap for the president by just sitting and waiting for him to commit a completely unnecessary crime. And the wheel continues turning and never stopping.

Corruption used to be something everyone was concerned about. Now a-days, it just isn't so. So, I expect more of the same moving forward. Democrats pointing to the facts and laying them bare, with the Republicans spinning, bobbing and weaving saying "who cares"- the President did nothing wrong. Yes! This is exactly why in America we should not prosecute murders if we think the trial will be boring.

For certain no one will ever agree to disagree on this one. With President Bill Clinton we all knew the truth, With Andrew Johnson it was all a mistake based on technicalities, and he was acquitted by a single vote. "Richard tricky Dick Nixon" out smarted them all. He just called it quits. He said if he had it all to do over again, he would have fired everyone and then quit himself!

The overwhelming evidence of substantial high crimes, by President Trump, just don't seem to matter, and all the effort and expense to try a case with no meaningful outcome for either side leaves one with only one explanation. It's horseradish!

Here we are in the middle of a great high school volleyball tournament and we have to deal with politicians and professional football players who don't know right from wrong. Disgusting!
