Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions.
Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new, wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.
Alright. It’s true that I rarely lampoon Republican politicians, those doing what they can to hold the line and defend my country from our domestic enemies. Still though, fair is fair, funny is funny, and irony should burn at least a little. So, Democrats laughing at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA 14) when she called for decorum in the House not only doesn’t offend me, I actually find it a bit funny and a fair response.
Let’s face it; MTG is a lot things, and most of them are good or based upon The Good. But having even a passing acquaintance with decorum isn’t one of them. Or, at least, she’s not to-date shown any fondness on the job for staying within decorum’s bounds. So…
So, the House – specifically, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA-14) – has introduced Articles of Impeachment against Joe “Bad Hands” Biden. I don’t in the least find this surprising after what Dems have done, but I do find it to be stupid, largely worthless, and very much not a good thing for the political landscape of our nation.
Yes, it’s true that we have more evidence that Biden has committed “High Crimes” than the Dems had against President Trump. But, from a procedural and/or legal standpoint, that is, at this moment, largely because the Dems had no evidence against President Trump since their “charges” were either wholly fabricated – as in a charge in the articles not actually being a High Crime or Misdemeanor – or being something that he hadn’t done but they were supposedly convinced her might do in the future. And again yes, it’s rather unlikely that truly sufficient evidence will be able to be gotten, given the nature and bias of the FBI and rest of the DOJ. That doesn’t, however, mean you move forward without that evidence.
Also, another simple truth is that the Senate is largely Democrat. Even if the House indicted Biden – which is highly unlikely – there is no way the Senate would convict him, much less remove him from office even if they truly believed that, in his former role as Vice President, President Biden abused the power of that office through enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors by allowing his son Hunter Biden to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept benefits from foreign nationals in exchange for favors. They could catch him raping toddlers in the Oval Office and still not remove him from office, not with either President Trump, Gov. DeSantis, or a pairing of both looming on the horizon.
So, there’s no valid, real-world purpose behind introducing articles of Impeachment against Creepy Uncle Joe. No good will come of it and doing so just furthers the erosion of our republic that the Dems started. It’s just largely pointless and selfish virtue signalling.
They will be the first articles of impeachment filed against Biden since House Republicans took the majority in January
The above is the subtitle of Fox News’ article about this. And, I think that it is both telling and predictive. The Dems broke the door open to using impeachment as a normal, every-day tool against the POTUS and, now, Republicans are returning the favor, having realized that it’s a seemingly cheap way of making their position clear and “showing” their constituencies that they’re righteous. It’s going to accelerate, escalate, and degenerate from here in all likelihood.
Folks, forget the idea of someone playing Nero’s part while Rome burns. What we’re going to see is the Dems and Republicans doing Call & Response ala “Dueling Banjos” while the nation burns.
While it’s true that all attempts at macroeconomic theory are essentially voodoo, it takes on a whole different and more depraved tenor when Congress gets involves. And the Fed? The Gods alone know what arcane rituals they utilize, but I’d not be surprised if those rituals made them the #1 buyer of Planned Parenthood’s products. 🙄
Forget all the Third World shitholes; forget all the domestic shitholes like Detroit and Chicago; the worst shithole in the world today is in DC. It’s the Democrats’ Congress. And, like all shitholes, it needs to be soaked in diesel, burned clean, and purified with quicklime.
The US Senate has confirms Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the SCOTUS. They did so in record time and, unsurprisingly in the extreme, without a single Democrat vote. This secures the safety and efficacy of the Supreme Court for decades to come.
To me, the most interesting and important part of this is that Barrett’s confirmation as a SCOTUS Justice is a critical event but is not truly news. Her confirmation and the timeliness of it were never in doubt. Nor was the total opposition to both by the Democrats, who were, are, and will continue to be seething over not being able to “Bork” her nomination.
Barrett’s confirmation is important to America’s future but that it happened and happened now is just another case of Republicans playing by the Democrats’ “rules” and beating them at their own game. It’s just another day in the death spiral of Congressional politics.
