Speaker Pelosi Bamboozles Base by Announcing Enhanced Continuation of Status Quo….

Today Nancy Pelosi made an announcement with forethought, optical planning, teleprompter script, and a presentation intended to look serious.  But what she announced was simply a continuation of the status quo wrapped up in newly packaged lingo.

Pelosi stated she was herewith announcing an “official impeachment inquiry“. Everything remains ‘as is’, albeit with enhanced optics and new titles for the narrative engineers.

The Democrat stage managers forgot the trumpets…

Essentially she announced House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler will continue doing what House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler was already doing; only now House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, will start doing what he was doing with a new lingo.

There is not one thing different from today than yesterday, except the optics and new language to help the media hype something that doesn’t exist.   Speaker Pelosi did not announce her intent to hold a house vote to authorize an impeachment investigation; she didn’t even mention the word vote at all.   In essence what Speaker Pelosi has done is just satiate her base of Democrats with the fancy optics of something that doesn’t exist.

What’s the difference from Nadler’s “impeachment inquiry” yesterday, and Pelosi’s “official impeachment inquiry” today?…  Nothing.

The constitution provides for the formal process to initiate articles of impeachment for a sitting president.  The constitutional process begins with a vote in the House of Representatives to launch an impeachment investigation by House Committees.  However, Pelosi doesn’t want to hold a vote to start the process…. so she’s just modifying the language of the status quo and instead of the House voting to authorize an “impeachment investigation”, Pelosi announces an arbitrary “impeachment inquiry” by fiat.

It’s silly.

It’s the goofiest thing in modern politics.

It would be laughable if a sizable portion of the country, driven mostly by insufferable media presentations, didn’t actually believe something new just happened.

Feel free to modify the popcorn to “official popcorn”.

    This will be the third time I have blogged about this. Impeachment is now political. The dem and RINO/GOPe do not care for PDJT’s success his policies and no doubt his personality. These are the reasons PDJT is being impeached.

    He is going to beat it of course, but what will happen to future presidents both dem and republican. The door is now open and the slope is slippery. This is going to be a significant obstacle for this country to overcome.

      I believe that Pelousi’s Whip (79 year old Clyburn) told her that she didn’t have the votes to use the Constitutional process of voting to start an impeachment. So she chickened out, adjusted the draperies in her office, then went out to the cameras and asserted that being a queen, she can simply order an impeachment event and it will happen.

    This tells me the next report due out…is bad for them.

    And that will be used as proof of Trump using the system to his benefit, which will strengthen the argument for impeachment, at least by the talking heads. Pelosi also just took huge pressure off herself. Now, she can brush off any question about impeachment by saying, “There’s an official investigation, so I can’t say anything further.” And she can always NOT file articles by saying that while his actions were (every negative adjective you can think of), there is no point in filling Articles because Senate won’t convict.

          Michelle running and getting the nomination would enable the Establishment to get Obama back in office which I think is what they wanted all along, but Deray McKesson got hacked, and, for some reason, Hillary did not legally challenge the outcome of the election which Steele swore in written responses to a legal interrogative was the true purpose for the Steele Dossier given him by Perkins Coie attorney Michael Sussmann.

          Perkins Coie was the vehicle through which Hillary asserted her financial hegemony over the DNC during 2016 campaign. Michael Sussmann was the likely transmission belt for Hillary’s decision to forbid Crowdstrike from taking the DNC network off the Internet and overhauling the network to eliminate the hackers prior to May 23 and May 25, 2016 when the first tranche of emails to Wikileaks was stolen. The decision was for Crowdstrike to stand down until mid-June, when all primary elections were over, permitting the emails to be stolen and later transmitted to Wikileaks, creating Trump-Russia-Wikileaks, rebranding Assange as Russian intelligence asset and Wikileaks as “hostile foreign intelligence operation.”

    • It tells me, not that the “next report” is bad for them, but that the latest BOMBSHELL is hitting them in gory slow-motion: Biden, speaking with the voice (the authority) of Obama/Soetoro himself, THREATENED the Ukraine to stop investigating his son or they would lose one BILLION dollars. In response, the Ukraine president tried to inform the new President Trump, and was stymied BY AMERICAN BUREAUCRATS. We have all seen the tape of Biden proudly admitting his high crime, and any fool can tell he wouldn’t make such a blackmail threat — and certainly wouldn’t act proud of it — without the full authority of President Barack Hussein Obama.

      Everybody on our side, not just President Trump, should be saying this over and over and over again, with righteous indignation and demand for prosecution of the ex-President and his entire administration, and all of those who re-elected that scum. The Democrat party is no longer a legitimate political force, ergo there is no excuse for Pelosi, Nadler, etc ad nauseum, being allowed to act as if they WERE legitimate.

            “Both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have the right to make their own rules governing their procedure, and to change those rules. Under current rules, the actual impeachment inquiry begins in the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives. That Committee holds hearings, takes evidence, and hears testimony of witnesses concerning matters relevant to the inquiry. Typically, as occurred in the case of President Nixon, there will also be a Minority Counsel who serves the interest of the party not controlling Congress.

            Witnesses are interrogated by the Committee Counsel, the Minority Counsel, and each of the members of the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee formulates Articles of Impeachment which could contain multiple counts. The Committee votes on the Articles of Impeachment and the results of the vote are reported to the House as a whole. The matter is then referred to the whole House which debates the matter and votes on the Articles of Impeachment, which may or may not be changed. If the Articles of Impeachment are approved, the matter is sent to the Senate for trial.” https://litigation.findlaw.com/legal-system/presidential-impeachment-the-legal-standard-and-procedure.html

      Clear explanation. TY for the source.

      Excerpt

      “While impeachment proceedings can be complex, the basic process is quite simple. An impeachment begins when an official behaves in a manner which the people believe disqualifies him from further public service. A complaint requesting an impeachment investigation of that official is lodged with the House of Representatives. That request may either be general in its scope or it may delineate specific offenses; it may be requested in a petition filed by individual citizens or on the request of a single Representative, a group of Representatives, or the President.

      “The request is referred to the House Judiciary Committee which forwards it to the Subcommittee on the Constitution. The Subcommittee then investigates the complaints and, if there is merit to the charges, Articles of Impeachment describing the specific offense(s) are prepared. Those Articles are forwarded to the full Judiciary Committee for a vote. If approved, the Articles are sent to the full House for a vote.

      “A simple majority of the House either approves or disapproves the Articles. If disapproved, the issue is terminated. Approval, however, is, in effect, the equivalent of a grand jury indictment against that official. The approved Articles of Impeachment are then delivered to the Senate. With this action, the House’s role in an impeachment is finished.

      “The Senate, according to the process described in Article 1, Section 3, Clause 6 and 7, then becomes a courtroom for a full-scale trial, with the Senators serving as the jury. In that setting, evidence is presented both by the defendant (the impeached official) and the prosecution. A vote is then taken. If less than two-thirds of the Senators present concur in the official’s guilt, then the impeached official is acquitted and returns to the practice, responsibilities, and full privileges of his office.

      “However, if two-thirds of the Senators believe the evidence proves the impeached official guilty, then the Constitution allows the Senate to impose two penalties: (1) remove the individual from that specific office, or (2) remove the individual from that office and also prohibit him from all future office-holding. This is the extent of the Senate penalty; it can withhold political positions, but it cannot impose civil or criminal penalties. (If an impeachment conviction is rendered by the Senate, a court may not overturn it; a decision by Congress on impeachment is final .) (Impeachment, by David Barton, p.11, Wallbuilders, Aledo, TX, 1996)

      Worth reading the rest of the article.

They seem just another version of Fusion GPS, pretending to be one thing when they’re really another. Oh–they were started by a former Schumer and H Clinton staffer. That’s who is “representing” this person (their ads supposedly inlude “preparation for media appearances.”)

None of this is organic, we all knew, but to see pieces about their creation and advertising blitz after PDT got in—fascinating in a horror-show way, finding out how DC really works.

    I think the Deep State needs Biden to win and this is their effort to protect him.

    The fact that the “whistleblower” did not hear the call between Pres and Ukraine, or even had direct knowledge of it, proves there are elements within the IC that are still spying on Trump. I think the IC knew the Biden/Ukraine stuff was gonna go mainstream, either from POTUS or maybe from Warren/Bernie. So they found a volunteer to give their surveillance to, and put him out there as a “whistleblower”. Get ahead of the narrative and accuse Trump of what Biden did.

    Warren and Bernie are going to use this to their advantage, against their immediate opponent which is Biden and say this is “impeachable”. Thats an indirect shot at Biden considering what he himself said he did with regards to Ukraine.

    Pelosi is stuck between rock and hard place, so she just goes out and basically does nothing, while trying to look like shes doing something.

      Beverly, you’re doing the right thing. There is a time to fight and a hill to die on, and getting into arguments that won’t change anything with the people you work with is NOT that hill. Let them think they’re winning the war but you and I know that there are a lot more people like You, and Me, out here than there are of them, we’re just not interested in arguing about it.

    The dems never learn, Nancy just made this announcement to placate the AOC squad and far left base. The problem for them is now they are expecting Trump to be removed from office. Just like they expected the Mueller report to take him down. The democrats will not be unified in this, too many will be voted out and their base will be even more enraged.

    Note: I have released the message below in one format or another several times since 1989. This time I have not censored a single word out of the lessons learned. I will not comment on any of the elements in the book I referenced except to say the likes of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are going to feel the bent up anger of all of us veterans who along with our fellow Americans have been betrayed one time too many! I have seen politicians at every level of government involved in every kind of crime one can imagine, but what Nancy and her gang pulled today is insulting the intelligence of the American people. Bottom line her/their lack of candor is the last straw (see lessons learned # 2. C. W. Lauderdale Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired.

    Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had, And It’s Your Own Damn Fault!

    In 1989 after serving 26 years as a soldier/cop and in my third year as a civilian police chief, I prepared 12 of the 15 lessons learned presented below as part of a book I was writing detailing my experiences as an American soldier and police officer. Everything I have seen, read, and heard since D.J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Towers has convinced me that all of the original 12 lessons learned and the three I added recently are more relevant today than they were 30 years ago. The behavior of most of the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American Academia has also convinced me that God still loves Americans and America. I know this because God has sent us a true leader who has clearly displayed that he has mastered all of the Seven C’s of Leadership (see lessons learned #2). I believe God sent D.J. Trump here to lead America to a height we have never imagined. I also believe God has/is demonstrating that he has a sense of humor. Why else would he place so many blabbering idiots (i.e. media, politicians, bureaucrats, academicians, etc…) among us generally insulting the intelligence of the dumbest among us with their daily doses of pure manure? Today’s media, bureaucrats, academicians, and political class are the same and/or newer versions of those that inspired the lessons learned presented below and a book yet to be published (due to the amount of still classified material therein). The title of the book may provide a hint or two as to my basic attitude. The book’s original title was: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had! After B.H. Obama was elected to his second term I re-titled the book. The new title is: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had. And, It’s Your Own Damn Fault!

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

    1. Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.

    2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.

    3. The most cost effective personnel management tool for incompetent personnel assigned to leadership positions in combat units (and probably elsewhere) is “Fragging!”

    4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

    5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

    6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

    7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

    8. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.

    9. My guns were always turned in the wrong direction.

    10. Washington, DC is the most target rich environment I have encountered in all of my years as a soldier/cop.

    11. If recalled to active military service the only position I will accept is; Commander, Revolutionary Forces.

    12. There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.

    13. American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more. (Added 2019)

    14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)

    15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

    PS
    Please, one final note: Contrary to the implications of several of my lessons learned, I have long ago abandoned any desire to negate (Negate, the procedure that the British SAS [Special Air Service] utilizes to transfer subjects from the persons of interest list to the persons no longer of interest list.) those of the any of four communities who would threaten and/or interfere with soldiers/cops actions to protect/serve the American people. No, these days I would support rounding up the most obnoxious of the communities, issuing each of them a tent and a bus ticket to California, and instructing them that if they leave California it better be on a boat heading to China!

    The difference now is that Pelosi took a yuge bite out of the Ukraine apple to justify impeachment.

    Trump then announced the release of the Ukraine call transcript and the Ukraine whistleblower information.

    Master trolling complete?

    NoNo Nancy said “The President must be held accountable, no one is above the law…the dishonorable facts of the President’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our election.”

    Funny thing about that little speech NoNo. Yes, a few words were omitted but with that identification (which, incidentally, is incorrect) removed you described Obama 💯%! Talk about betraying the integrity of our election, even Mad Max (your loyal fellow Dem) said—Obama has a massive database which he betrayed national security to get (by illegally gaming the IC with their help). Along with the Uniparty re-pubicans, they have no desire for truth to see the light of day.
    There is a meme going around on Facebook that says we don’t care about seeing the tax returns of a successful billionaire businessman but we would like to see the tax returns of Congressmen who make $175,000/year who have become millionaires while in Congress. We the People need to insist on that investigation. And it needs to be done by We the People, not by the foxes guarding the hen house in Congress.

    The House Dems and Speaker Pelosi are working themselves into an interesting dilemma aa they continue to ratchet up the Impeachment issue.

    Their problem stems from the fact they CANNOT AFFORD TO HOLD an Impeachment vote. They’re not only some 40+ votes short, but the vote itself would put those 40 members in jeopardy of re-election, which is twice the number of seats the GOP needs to retake the House.

    Moreover, were the Dems to lose the House, it could wel signal Speaker Pelosi’s resignation as their party’s leader, leading to the REAL REASON such a mythical Impeachment vote will never happen.

  36. The Democrats’ real problem is they don’t have a crime. The Constitution says that impeachment can be done for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” but that Congress cannot convict a person of such a crime in a legal sense. And the Court system, after evaluating $40 million worth of bogus non-evidence, concluded as a matter of law that there was no crime. (Taking care to point out that it was not because “he is the President.”)

    “Lawfare” lawyers of course insist that it doesn’t matter: that the law is anything they want it to be, and if you think about launching some proceeding and imagine that your quarry would not like it … why, that person just obstructed justice in absentia! (Got that?) But that’s why “We, the People” don’t work for their firm. (That’s also why we hire lawyers that do know what they’re talking about.)

    For the Democrats, it’s just politics. They know that he’ll be re-elected unless they impeach him. But they won’t accept that they have no Constitutional authority to do so. They can only impeach in the presence of a crime – and here, there is none.
