The second round of the Democrats’ impeachment sham is like the sequel to a bad movie. The plot never gets any better in a sequel. Once again, Democrats thought they could gain some political traction with trumped up charges carnival-barked by their cronies in the mainstream media like some house of horrors sideshow. Yet, the only substantive difference between this failed impeachment and the last one was the fact that Democrats were no longer prosecuting the sitting President of the United States, but a private citizen.
However, the shocking and disturbing revelation at the impeachment trial was just how bold the Republican traitors of the Senate are. Never-Trumpers who control the GOP money had a plan for banishing Trump all along. Consultants who feed at the trough of campaign dollars seek a return to lining their own pockets with fees as candidates would raise money without competition by Trump. But the continued enthusiastic support for Trump among voters, as confirmed by every recent poll, shows that we are not returning to a gentrified Republican Party run by consultants. Liz Cheney hung on to her leadership position only because the vote was held in secret to conceal who the traitors are.
An impressive 86% of Republican senators voted for Trump, despite intense arm-twisting to try to toss him overboard as the GOP leader. The scattered few Republicans who voted against him are a discredited bunch of Trump-haters, lame ducks, and recalcitrant globalists. Many local GOP groups cast unanimous votes of censure against officials who betrayed Trump supporters and all Americans by misusing the impeachment proceedings against citizen Trump. The GOP has not seen this level of grassroots energy in decades.
Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) was promptly censured by five GOP county organizations in his state, and Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) was censured by his statewide party. These extraordinary rebukes by Republican groups against Republican officials reflect a new era of grassroots power within the Republican Party. We are no longer willing to shrug our shoulders and excuse Swampy behavior as an inevitability. Once again, Donald Trump took a plot to destroy him and turned it into another win for the American people. When will the Never-Trumpers learn?
