The impeachment is over and it was unfair and constitutionally incoherent dangerous

The impeachment is over. It was unfair and constitutionally incoherent dangerous. The Hate Trump Media Mob said Abuse of Power about Trump`s behaviour, but that is a lie. It is the House that has abused its power. Not Trump.

The U.S Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel said this on the Senate floor regarding the Senate Impeachment Trial yesterday:

«These past weeks, the Senate has grapped with as grave a subject as we ever consider: A request from a majority in the House of Representatives to remove the president.

«The Framers took impeachment extremely seriously. But they harbored no illusions that these trials would always begin for the right reasons. Alexander Hamilton warned that the demon of faction would extend his scepter over the House of Representatives at certain seasons.

«He warned that an intemperate or designing majority in the House might misuse impeachment as a weapon of ordinary politics rather than an emergency tool of last resort.

McConnell said it`s the House that has abused its power. Not Trump.

«They called the Senate, quote; the most fit depositary of this important trust. Tomorrow, we will know whether that trust was well placed.

«The drive to impeach President Trump did not begin with the allegations before us. Here was reporting in April of 2016; Donald Trump isn`t even the Republican nominee yet….. (but) Impeachment is already on the lips of pundits, newspaper editoras, constitutional scholars, and even a few members of Congress.

Did you see that? The impeachement started long before he was elected. Huh…. (editors note).

«Here was the Washington Post headline minutes after President Trump`s inauguration: The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.

«The articles of impeachment before us were not even the first ones House Democrats introduced. This was go-around number seven. Those previously-alleged High Crimes and Misdemeanors included things like being impolite to the press and to professional athletes.

«This insults the intelligence of the American people to pretend this was a solemn process relutantly begun because of withheld foreign aid. No, Washington Democrats position on this President has been clear for years.

«Their position was obvious when they openly rooted for the Mueller investigation to tear our country apart were disappointed when the facts proved otherwise. It was obvious when they sought to impeach this President over and over.

«Here`s their real position; Washington Democrats think President Donald Trump committed a High Crime or Misdemeanor the moment he defeated Secretary Clinton in the 2016 election. That is the original sin of this presidency: That he won and they lost.

«Ever since, the nation has suffered through a grinding campaign against our norms and institutions from the same people who keep shouting that our norms and institutions need defending.

«A campaign to degrade our democracy and deligitimize our elections from the same people who shout that confidence in our democracy must be paramount.

«We have watched a major American political party adopt the following absurd proposition: We think this president is a bull in a china shop, so we`re going to drive a bulldozer through the china shop to get rid of him.

«This fever led to the most rushed, least fair, and least thorough presidential impeachment inquiry in Amerian history.

« The House inquiry into President Nixon spanned many months. The special prosecutors investigation added many more months. With President Clinton, the independent counsel worked for years.

«Here`s how Chairman Schiff put it back in October. Quote: Any action,,,,, that forces us to litigate, or have to consider litigation, will be considered further evidence of obstruction of justice.

«That is nonsense. Impeachment is not some magical constitutional trump card that melts away the seperations between the branches of government. The Framers did not leave the House a secret constitutional steamroller that everyone somehow overlooked for 230 years.

«When Congress subpoenas executive-branch officials with questions of privilege, the two sides either reach an accommodation or take to the courts.

«That is the way this works.

«The abuse of power charge is just as unpersuasive and dangerous.

«By passing that article, House Democrats have into a temptation that every previous House has resisted. They impeached a president without even alleging a crime known to our laws.

(How in the world is it possible? Editors note).

«I do not subscribe to the legal theory that impeachment requires a violation of a criminal statue. But there are powerful reasons why, for 230 years, every presidential impeachment did allege a criminal violation.

«The Framers explcitly rejected impeachment for maladministration – a general charge under English law that basically encompassed bad management; a sort of general vote of no confidence. Except in the most extreme circumstances, except for acts that overwhelmingly shocked the national conscience, the Framers decided presidents must serve at the pleasure of the electorate and not the pleasure of House majorities.

«As Hamilton wrote: it is one thing to be subordinate to the laws, and another to be dependent on the legislative body.

«So House Democrats sailed into new and dagerous water. The first impeachment unbound by the criminal law. Any House that felt it needed to take this radical step owed the country the most fair and painstaking process; the most rigorous investigation; the most bipartisan effort. Instead, we got the opposite. The exact opposite.

«The House Managers argued that the President could not have been acting in the national interest because he acted inconsistently with their own conception of the national interest, a conception shared by some of the President`s subordinates.

«This does not even approach a case for the first presidential removal in Amercan history.

«Such an act cannot rest alone on the exercise of a constitutional power, combined with concerns about whether the President`s motivations were public or personal, and a disagreement over whether the exercise of the power was in the national interests.

«The Framers gave our nation an ultimate tool for evaluating a President`s character and policy decisions. They`re called elections.

«Frankly, it is hard to believe that House Democrats ever really thought this reckless and precedent-breaking process would yield 67 votes to cross the Rubicon. Was their vision so clouded by partisanship that they really believed this would be anywhere near enough for the first presidential removal in American history?

«Or was success besides the point? Was this all an effort to hijack our institutions for a month-long political rally? Either way, the demon of faction, has been on full display. But now it is time for him to exit the stage.

«We have indeed witnessed an abuse of power: A grave abuse of power by just the kind of House majority the Framers warned us about. So tomorrow, the Senate must do what we were created to do. We have done our duty. We have considered all arguments. We have studied the «mountain of evidence.» And tomorrow, we will vote.

«We must vote to reject the House`s abuse of power. Vote to protect our institutions.

«Vote to reject new precedents that would reduce the Framers design to rubble.

«Vote to keep factional fever from boiling over and scorching our Republic.

«I urge every one of our coleagues to cast the vote that the facts in evidence, the Constitution, and the common good clearly require.

«Vote to acquit the President of these charges.»

Trump will be acquitted

The establishment failed again, while the Senate votes 51- 49 against new witnesses. The establishment has always said that Trump is illegitimate, but the fact is that the opposite is the truth. The Russia Hoax was a big lie. So are the Ukraine Hoax. Trump didn`t do something wrong, and he is not a criminal.

The Deep State, the leftwing activist and the DC Swamp attacked Trump the day he was inaugurated. Women`s March movement took to the streets, and Madonna said she wanted to bomb the White House. But their Smear-campaign didn`t work.

The Trump Haters failed with the Russia Hoax. Now, they also failed with the Ukraine Hoax. So what now? What`s next? There is no reason to believe that they will remain silent. New cases and more lies will probably come up. Get ready for Hoax 3,0.

The U.S tax revenue will continue to go straight up

Mainstream Media (MSM) and some of their «smart» journalists were laughing at president Trump when he said he will cut taxes and bring back jobs and money. How in the world is he gonna do that with so much debt, they argued.

Now, we know that president Trump was right. The U.S government receipts increased 7% YoY to 253 billion in October of 2018. Government revenues in the U.S reached an all-time high of 510447 USD Million in April of 2018, and the economy are growing faster and create more jobs than expected. It`s an economic boom.

The U.S income tax revenue climbed from about 1 trillion in 2000 to 1,59 trillion US dollars in 2017, but we can already now see a major shift in the market. The forecast predicts an increase in income tax revenues up to about 2,92 trillion U.S dollars in 2028. Up nearly 100%.

It seems like the booming economy will continue and the forecast predicts an increase in total receipts to reach about 4,39 trillion in 2023.

Obama is often trying to take Trump`s cred for the economic boom, but the difference between Obama and Trump is the deficit. It climbed to $148 billion under Obama while it climbed to «only» $113 in fiscal 2018 under president Trump.

So, the government did better on revenues and deficits under Trump than under Obama`s last year in office. The economy was sluggish under Obama were the federal revenues was barely increasing and the deficit increased.

The real boom in the economy came with Trump`s tax cuts and all his business reforms. The Congress (on both sides) must be held responsible for the increase in deficit as they refuse to bring federal spending under control.

The Republicans like to push down the taxes while the Dems like to keep them high. If the Dems were in charge, the taxes would have remained high on the cost of jobs and wage gains America now is enjoying. Would that be a better solution?

Obama and Bernanke «printed» money after the financial crisis, but the economy was sluggish and the growth was never 2% under Obama. The recovery was very slow but it takes some time to turn the ship around. Obama and Trump should look upon themselves as one team; Team America and that`s red, white and blue.

Trump had tremendous success and gained 3 seats in the 2018 mid-term election

Two days before the midterm election, Norwegian journalists said President Trump admitted that he will lose. The day after the election, the same group of people said Mr Trump was looking sad. They also said he tweeted he was happy despite the fact that he lost seats. There is no secret that you can count Trump supporters on one finger in Norway. They are mocking him every single day.

They often like to refer to CNN. The channel Mr Trump call Fake News. They are also very similar because about 98 percent is negative news. All the time. Every single day. If there are some good news, they makes it look bad.

 

 

It is something fundamentally wrong when everybody is on one side. Everybody on one side means there is no balance. Ask some kids on the streets what they think about Mr Trump and I`m pretty shure they will say something negative. This is indoctrination.

There is one good thing going on right now. Some people wont listen to the MSM anymore. They dont belive in it. This is why Trump and the Republicans had tremendous success in the midterm election. It also proves that the Dems` Russia story is a hoax.

MSM predicted a blue wave on Tuesday, but what we saw was the 2016 election on repeat. People said yes to Mr Trump. Again. Maybe they will come up with a new Russia story, but it wouldn`t work.

The Russia hoax reveals how persons within the FBI and Obamas Justice Department worked improperly to help Clinton and defeat Trump in the 2016 presidential election. We havent heard the last word in this case, and here comes the midterm election in.

To those who belive that Mr Trump was a big loser on Tuesday, have a listen to this; Obama lost -63 seats in the house and -6 seats in the senate in his first midterm election. That`s -69 seats.

Trump lost -27 seats in the house but gained +3 seats in the senate. That`s only -24 seats.

The presidents party has lost an average of 37 seats since the end of World War Two, and historically the party in the White House has lost a badly in midterms, especially when a presidents job-approval rating was below 50 percent.

In other words; the 2018 midterm election was great for Donald Trump.

According to Marketwatch, it`s only the third time in the past 100 years that the party holding the White House has gained seats in the Senate in a mid-term election while losing seats in the House.

The same split outcome also occurred under John F. Kennedy in 1962.
