Speaker Pelosi Declares a Coup Against President Trump

Nancy Pelosi transparently announced a coup against President Trump on Thursday morning, Dec. 5, 2019, a date which will live in political infamy.

There was never any doubt that the House of Representatives will vote on a strictly partisan basis to impeach the president, but it could not have been foreseen that Pelosi would frame that approaching act as a naked power grab.

Yet that is exactly what she did.

In opening her announcement to draft impeachment charges by quoting the Declaration of Independence, she acknowledged more plainly than ever before that she is taking a revolutionary act, that she is overthrowing the established order and that, in modern terms, she has launched a coup.

Consider the words she quoted:

"When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another ..."

This is either wildly inappropriate or a fundamental clue to the deeper meaning of the necessity of impeachment, as seen by the Democrats. These are not the words of an orderly transfer of power via legal means. They are a confession of the underlying intent of what has long been called "The Resistance" — and that is revolution, rebellion, the overthrow of an executive power that does not conform to the expectations of an aggrieved ruling class.

What we must ask now is just who are "the people" on both sides of this conflict? Pelosi implied that "one people" are dissolving their political bonds with "another," so who exactly are Pelosi and her like-minded revolutionaries declaring independence from? President Trump, the 63 million people who voted for him, the Republican Party or the authors of the Constitution itself?

Pelosi dangled her quote from the Declaration of Independence in front of us, but did not complete it — for good reason. The rest of what Thomas Jefferson wrote about the rebellious Colonists is that "a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

Jefferson and the co-signers of the Declaration bravely did just that, but as law professor Jonathan Turley so eloquently established in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, the Democrats in Congress have done nothing of the same. This has been an impeachment in search of a crime, and even now Pelosi cannot establish any basis for impeachment that is guaranteed to win even one Republican vote.

That tells you all you need to know about how far we are from 1776. This impeachment is not a unifying act like the joining together of 13 Colonies against a common enemy, but rather the tearing asunder of a union into separate camps much like the rebellion that Abraham Lincoln encountered in 1861.

If Democrats alone perceive a tyrannical disregard for the law by the president, and Republicans instead uniformly accuse the Democrats of acting from base political motivation, there is no happy outcome possible. There is no distant enemy on a foreign throne who can unite us in common battle. We are instead engaged in a great civil war testing whether the nation conceived in liberty by the signers of that immortal Declaration can endure much longer.

Pelosi rightly notes that our Founders were declaring their independence from "an oppressive monarch." She implies that her mission to unseat President Trump is similarly noble, even implying that Trump is a "king president."

But how exactly has Trump acted oppressively or dangerously?

Keep your powder dry, and oil implements of liberty freely. They may be required of you.

One of the articles of impeachment is the President’s obstruction of the House impeachment process. The article states over and over the the House has the ultimate authority to impeach. If I were McConnell, I would say that the Senate cannot have a trial over the President’s supposed obstruction of the House because the House has that sole authority and the Senate cannot get involved in House matters. The House must take these issues to the courts to decide. The Senate cannot dictate or enforce House policies and procedures. I think that would be hilarious if Mitch could do that.

If she and her fellow lunatics from Kommiefornia wish to secede (since she chose to read from the DOI), I can wholeheartedly back that effort!!
