impeachment

Is Chaos an Impeachable Offense?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Even the recent anonymous New York Times op-ed author offered no real explanations of what exactly Trump has done wrong that would warrant anti-democratic removal other than to concede that Trump has done things that most felt were long overdue. And he made changes in a rude and uncouth manner that the establishment did not like — just as a nude emperor in invisible clothes does not like it when an outsider observes that he is naked.

Leftist Christians Target Florida Governor’s Race

Democrats Gillum and King will cloak their campaign in the mantle of churches across Florida but make no mistake about their ideology – it is the same Far Left ideology of open borders, sanctuary cities, big government, socialism and abortion on demand that their backers billionaires George Soros, Tom Steyer and other “progressive” Democrats stand for.

Democrats Hope for a Richard Nixon Repeat

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

what is afoot here is something America specializes in — regime change. Only the regime our establishment and media mean to change is the government of the United States. What is afoot is the overthrow of America's democratically elected head of state. The methodology is familiar. After a years-long assault on the White House and president by a special prosecutor's office, the House takes up impeachment, while a collaborationist press plays its traditional supporting role. Presidents are wounded, disabled or overthrown, and Pulitzers all around.

It Isn’t Just Trump vs. Bernie In Florida Governor’s Race

The aim of billionaires Tom Steyer, George Soros and their network of Far-Left megadonors isn’t just electing another progressive governor in Florida, it is putting Florida out of reach for Republican presidential candidates forever. We’ve already made our contribution to Ron DeSantis and we urge all CHQ readers and friends to do the same through this link.

A Post-Trump World?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

We are in danger of establishing a precedent that in the new American politics, the way to defeat an oppositional leader is not to wait for the next election but to warp the criminal-justice system, normalize violent rhetoric against the person of the president, and consider the president guilty of whatever crime from his past is most convenient. Our elites have no idea of what half the “peasant” class thinks of them, or what it will do if they succeed, or the untold paradoxes and ironies that they will bring upon themselves.

Impeachment for Dummies

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The clean-up squad is here: Robert Mueller & Co. The Department of Justice and the special counsel's office move ever closer to the NKVD, or maybe Savonarola or Torquemada, while thinking they're the next best thing to Mother Teresa. So if there's going to be impeachment, I say bring it on. Destroy the country, if you wish. Create a civil war. But if you do it, remember to buy the book — Impeachment for Dummies. Or is it Dummies for Impeachment? I think it's the latter.

The Democratic pursuit of the unholy dream

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The rage to impeach Donald Trump began even before he was inaugurated, before he was even capable of high crimes and misdemeanors. Rep. Maxine Waters has been the face of the impeachment rage. Only now are “respectable” voices raised. In fact, if the president is impeached, she should be entitled to a place on the 2020 ticket, perhaps for vice president. To deny her would be shocking evidence of Democratic racism. She’s earned the recognition by her rabid devotion to a rabid cause, the campaign to cancel the result of a fair election that betrays everything that makes America the shining city on a hill.

How Trump can survive the onslaught against his presidency

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

His record, combined with the sense that he is under siege by a corrupt deep state, could motivate his half of the electorate to show up in full force on Election Day and save his neck once again. Given all the moving parts, and the likelihood of surprises, it is impossible to predict with strong confidence where the nation will be at the end of 2018. All I know is that the coming months are going to be one ­helluva nasty ride. Here’s hoping people of good will on both sides remember that, in the end, we’re all still Americans.

Do Democrats Want an Impeachment Fight?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If Democrats capture the House, then they will be the ones under intolerable pressure from their own media auxiliaries to pursue impeachment. Taking the House would put newly elected Democrats under fire from the right for forming a lynch mob, and from the mainstream media for not doing their duty and moving immediately to impeach Trump. Democrats have been laboring for two years to win back the House. But if they discover that the first duty demanded of them, by their own rabid followers, is to impeach President Trump, they may wonder why they were so eager to win it.

Will Trump Be Impeached for Obamacare ‘Sabotage’?

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats are clearly anxious to remove President Trump from office if the voters are crazy enough to grant them a majority in the House this fall. The only question involves the pretext Pelosi, et al., will use to justify the coup. Their last impeachment resolution, introduced by Texas Rep. Al Green, didn’t list any actual crimes or misdemeanors and it’s unlikely that the Mueller investigation will produce enough evidence of wrongdoing to impeach a ham sandwich. So, what’s a Trump-deranged Democrat to do? Nail him for Obamacare sabotage, of course.

Rod Rosenstein's Coup Against Trump Intensifies

Deputy Attorney General  Rod Rosenstein's government within the government has now crossed a line that is unacceptable. Rep. Mark Meadows has drafted eight articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. We urge CHQ readers to call Rep. Meadows, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) urge him to file the articles of impeachment against Rosenstein immediately.

Sixty Percent Of Likely Voters Want Immigration Cut

The bottom line: As we head into the 2018 mid-term election cycle, the polling company’s recent survey research found that almost two-thirds of all likely voters support reducing immigration and are opposed to DACA amnesty unless it is coupled with ending chain migration along with mandating that employers use E-verify to protect the jobs American workers and legal immigrants.

New Poll: Voters Will Reward Trump with Continued Majorities in Congress

Conservatives responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll are confident that President Trump’s voters are still behind him, with almost 89% saying that Republicans will hold their Congressional majorities in the 2018 elections.  Less than 5% expect Democrats to win a majority which would give them the votes needed for impeachment.

How To Make Nancy Pelosi Speaker Of The House

President Trump must resist the urge to do a deal and back DACA legislation decoupled from the rest of the conservative immigration reform agenda unless he wants to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House and mire the remainder of his presidency in Democrat-led investigations and impeachment hearings.

Desperately Hating Clarence Thomas

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Clarence Thomas has been recognized as a forceful legal mind on the Supreme Court, and he has staunchly argued against liberal barbarism like partial-birth abortion. It's obvious why liberal journalists with no real core principles on sexual harassment wished they had prevented his confirmation, and why Americans would have been denied an impressive justice.

3 lessons for Trump and Congress from Bill Clinton's impeachment

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Lessons for Trump in how Clinton was acquitted by the Senate and hung on to finish out his term, as well as for congressional Democrats who want to succeed where the 1990s Republican House impeachment managers failed: The White House and its allies will push to investigate the investigators, accusing them of a partisan “witch hunt” — or worse; Partisan impeachments are tough, and, Sex wasn’t considered serious enough to impeach a president over, but Russia might be.

Unlike Nixon, Trump Will Not Go Quietly

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump has Fox News and fighting congressmen behind him and the mainstream media is deeply distrusted and widely detested. And there is no Democratic House to impeach him or Democratic Senate to convict him. Moreover, Trump is not Nixon, who, like Charles I, accepted his fate and let the executioner’s sword fall with dignity. If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.

It Is Now an Obstruction Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I continue to believe accusations of abuse of power is the real danger for President Trump: A report by the special counsel, either through the grand jury or some other vehicle, concluding (a) that the president had obstructed the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and of Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, and (b) recommending that the matter be referred to Congress for consideration of next steps, potentially including impeachment and removal.

Is Mueller’s Grand Jury Impeachment Step One?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

High crimes and misdemeanors need not be felonies chargeable in criminal court; they include all manner of execrable episodes and abuses of power that cause us to question a public official’s fitness. they are just the sort of thing you’d find in a report issued by a grand jury. Which means that a report issued by a grand jury could be just the sort of thing a special counsel might refer to Congress as the potential foundation for an impeachment case.

USA Today’s Impeachment-Push Poll

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine if a national newspaper had asked voters in 2009 whether then-President Barack Obama should be impeached, or questioned whether he would finish his term. The left would have exploded in rage over the inherent racism in such preposterous questions. After all, at that point, Democrats were in control of both houses of Congress. Who thought that was plausible?
