Is The US Constitution Dead?
By Todd Strandberg
I find it increasingly difficult to conclude that a constitutional contract still exists between the American people and its government. The document that our founding fathers established as our rule of law is being violated on such a fundamental level it’s almost void of any meaning.
What we have today are rules that apply to people on the left and people on the right. If you are Hillary Clinton or the son of Joe Biden, you can commit any crime, and at best, you will receive a slap on the hand. If you are friendly in any way to the Republican Party, the vast resource of the government and the liberal media will be turned against you.
The ongoing impeachment process against Trump is obviously a sham. When Donald Trump took office in Jan. of 2017, radical members of Congress called for his immediate impeachment. Dingbats like Al Green and Maxine Waters didn’t think he met all the requirements to be President. After searching for three years to find something to use as their excuse to run the impeachment process against him, they settled on an issue involving the nation of Ukraine. Trump was said to have held up funds until Ukraine investigated Hunter Biden.
Nancy Pelosi read out two charges against Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. In order to claim that Trump abused his power, he needs to be charged with a crime. Bill Clinton pleaded guilty to lying under oath, and Richard Nixon ordered a coverup of Watergate. Nancy is trying to impeach the President for being a bad man, in her view. The second charge, obstruction of Congress, is pure garbage. Because Trump runs a separate branch of the government, he has the constitutional right to obstruct Congress from invading his Executive turf. If they want to force Trump to do something, they need to get a veto-proof vote in both chambers.
There is zero chance that the Senate will vote to remove Trump for office. If I was Senate Majority and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, I would laugh and just say “NO.” Since He cleared the Senate calendar for the month of January, McConnell is going to take Pelosi’s bait and have a trial. When they finally vote to acquit Trump, the House is going to start a new impeachment inquiry. Trump will likely set the record for the most impeachments for a single President, but it won’t mean anything.
The IG report was released last week, and IG director Horowitz “did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations.” FBI spies went in four times into the Trump campaign to seek information that could be used to harm Trump’s presidential bid, and we are told they were just there to keep things on the up and up.
This investigation was done with illegal authorizations that were used against security adviser Mike Flynn, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and goofball Roger Stone. They all now face long prison terms for lying to Congress and the Justice Department; the organizations that set them up. At this stage, lying to any government agency has become a joke. They lie to get people into trouble, and then they seek conviction to restore the truth.
The liberal media has become a vital partner with the government to strip people of their rights and to impose authoritarian rule. The New York Times has openly called for curtailing free speech. Its reporters actively work to promote a corrupt prosecutor in order to frame innocent people for rape, as the NYT did in the infamous Duke Lacrosse Case, and when the press wrongly accused the high school boys from Covington Catholic School of harassing a Native American. The result was active death threats against the students. The liberal media are the enemy of the people because they will now automatically attack anyone who opposes their leftist agenda.
I think the US Constitution is doomed because mankind has a hopeless flaw in eventually falling for tyrannical governments. They promise to solve all our problems with money. The free handout always requires the handover of power. When they gain the political edge, the people become their slaves. Because we are so close to the tribulation hour, I cannot hold out any hope of a political or spiritual revival. All I see is a public that is so guilty of neglecting its heritage of liberty, it deserves the punishment that is rapidly headed their way.
“Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves” (1 Samuel 8:10-17).
