May The Farce Be With You

Is anyone buying this “solemn and serious and prayerful” charade being put on by the Democrats? Watching them process into the Senate Chamber stone-faced, I felt like I was watching some Satanic ritual in a lousy sequel to Rosemary’s Baby. Remember when the articles of impeachment were approved in the House vote, and some of the Democrats couldn’t contain their glee and how one glance from the Borg Queen silenced any celebration? Imagine what the repercussions would have been if any of her obedient drones dared to show a shred of human emotion. A fate worse than deactivation, I fear.

I mean, seriously, I was expecting the Tinman, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion to fall into the back of the line so they could sneak into the castle and save Dorothy for the Wicked Witch of the West Coast. All this drama, but then that’s the point. All that’s left of this case is drama and ceremony. Playing up for all it’s worth for their surrogates in the Propaganda Ministry (MSM) is their only remaining gambit, especially when the articles that accompanied this March of the Wooden Soldiers are not even crimes.   

Well, let’s get this show – and to make no mistake, that is all this is – on the road. It might be entertaining, funny, ridiculous, clownish, and a whole bunch of other things. But one thing it will not be is a legitimate use of Congressional authority to overthrow a sitting President because they know they cannot beat him in a fair and open election. The trial is set to begin on Tuesday. It should end on Tuesday evening but it won’t. The House Democrats have too much posturing and blustering to do before slithering back to their own Chamber. The difference is, the somber looks of sadness will at least be honest ones. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if Democratic Legislators would come back from this six week vacation and actually…oh I don’t know…legislate?

Trump probes rocket to front of Dem agenda, as president dismisses new ethics complaints

House Democrats are accelerating and expanding their Trump-focused investigations as they return from summer recess, as President Trump rejects the latest round of ethics complaints and his allies warn that the ever-multiplying probes could derail the Democrats’ legislative agenda. In the latest major development, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., announced a vote for later this week that will essentially formalize the early stages of impeachment proceedings following weeks of confusion. A committee vote is scheduled for Thursday to set the rules for future hearings in its investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment against the president.
