Kansas City Blogging The Deep State Amid Prez Trump Impeachment Debate
Late night think piece contemplation from a comment fave along with resources from "many sides" of this debate . . . Checkit:
CHUCK: Half A Brain, Half A Brain, Half A Brain Onward
They could see the guns, that day on Oct. 25th 1854. The Dragoons must have wondered as they spurred their horses into a frontal assault what their leaders were thinking. Miscommunication between Lord Raglan in the chain of command and the brigade, that was supposed to hit a soft objective and recover guns, was sent into withering fire and destroyed.
Today and over the last 4 weeks, Democrat leadership in the House Of Representatives seem to be on a suicide mission. The English made mistakes in the heat of battle. The strategy worked out by the big thinkers in the House, is astonishing in it's seemingly self destructive intent.
Today's hearings, will be interpreted by both sides as a win. No doubt, those in the Silo on the Left, will remain convinced of the President's perfidy and malfeasance, while those in the Silo on the Right, will disagree.
What about the middle, the unconvinced, or, those whose cursory knowledge of current events is superseded by every day exigencies?
There is no clear winner at this point in what is categorically an effort to win over public opinion and damage, or remove the President. What could change this?
1) A Senate Trial. Even if you are as obtuse as Eric Swalwell, you have to admit, that the reversal of the process that just took place, in the House, in a "Trial" in the Senate, with Mitch McConnell in charge, will be devastating. Adam Schiff will be a witness. The Bidens will have to testify. The list of witnesses, with culpability relating to activities over the last 3 years should terrify the House Leadership as they cruise over the cliff, ala Thelma Pelosi and Louise Schiff.
2) In conjunction with this nightmare, the IG Report on the illegal criminality of the FBI, CIA, State Department etc. is due out and will be an ongoing discussion in the media and, on the floor of the Senate, DURING THE TRIAL. Again, remember, this is an effort, not only to unseat the President, but, barring that, damage the President prior to next year's election.
3) In conjunction with the previous 2 nightmares, Prosecutor Durham in my opinion, will indict, over the next 3 to 6 months, during the Trial, Deep State Actors who are neck deep in premeditated criminality. This will, in no way, damage the President and in fact, will make him unbeatable in the coming election.
Obviously, I support President Trump and, as a Trump supporter I really, really hope, The House votes to Impeach him.
Think about that.
