Now that the impeachment trial is over, we can see that the Democrats are not going to back off in their endless attempts to dislodge this duly elected president. They have been pushing for impeachment since before the man even took office.
You probably remember during the 2016 election, when Hillary Clinton grilled Trump over and over about whether or not he would accept his eventual loss. She and Obama talked about how impossible it is to rig an American presidential election, that only paranoiacs would make claims to the contrary. And Hillary warned America over and over that when Trump loses the election, his supporters will become violent.
It’s funny, because everything the Democrats have thrown at Trump since then has been sour grapes over losing an election they were so sure they would win.
But we know that the Democrats do not believe the things they say. We know this because their policies cause effects opposite to their stated goals and because they have been caught doing what they accuse others of doing again and again.
We know they are not being honest about their reasons for starting the impeachment trial because they have said in no uncertain terms that they know they cannot beat him in a fair election.
Last Monday, Trump’s lawyers made their closing arguments against the impeachment accusations. On the following day, the day before the final vote on impeachment, the President gave a state of the union speech that was nothing short of inspiring.
During his rousing speech, he said, “A new chapter of America greatness is now beginning. A new national pride is sweeping across our nation. And a new surge of optimism is placing impossible dreams firmly within our grasp. What we are witnessing today is a renewal of the American spirit.”
He said this, and many other marvelous things, without the possibility of the knowledge that he would be vindicated once again on the very next day.
Toward the end of his speech, he said, “The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us. We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts and the confidence to turn those hopes and those dreams into action. From now on America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears.”
On second thought, maybe he did know he was going to be acquitted.
His SOTU address was inspiring, just as his inaugural speech was inspiring. When we heard it, we hoped the Democrats would choose to abandon their hateful tactics. We hoped they would regain some semblance of sanity — seeing that they cannot justify continuing to call him every slur in the book. But then, in an unprecedented display of pettiness, Nancy Pelosi ripped his manuscript in two on live TV.
At that moment, we became all the more certain that the Dems are beyond hope, and it became all too clear that they intended to push for impeachment long before they had anything even resembling a fair reason to do so.
