It’s Time for Patriots With Pitchforks.
Washington has been consumed since Wednesday, September 18th, with the latest intelligence community-generated attack against the President of the United States, in the ongoing unconstitutional and seditious coup, which, if successful, ends our storied constitutional republic. At 5 p.m. Tuesday, crazed Democrats leaped off the cliff and announced, through Speaker Pelosi, that they were moving forward with a formal impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives. They were preceded by Lyndon LaRouche’s prosecutor and 2020 Trump primary opponent William Weld calling for the President’s immediate execution for treason.
The latest round of full-spectrum information war conducted against Trump and the American public, involves the claim that President Trump, in a conversation with new Ukraine President Zelensky, conditioned lethal aid to Ukraine on Zelensky investigating Hunter Biden’s obviously corrupt relationship with Burisma Holdings, an oil and gas enterprise owned by the oligarch Myloka Zlochevsky. Hunter, a coke addict with no experience in the oil and gas industry, was appointed to Burisma’s board while Papa Joe was serving as Obama’s point man on the 2014 British/American Ukraine coup and its aftermath, pocketing a cool $3 million, according to the President’s attorney Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani has also said that he has asked Ukraine for a full accounting of the Ukrainian state interference in the 2016 U.S. election on behalf of Hillary Clinton. The whistleblower complaint at the center of this faux controversy is said to involve multiple conversations by the President with foreign leaders about which the whistleblower is “concerned,” although he or she is said to have direct knowledge of absolutely none. The President has adamantly denied any quid pro quo in the specific conversation cited or that he has done anything wrong and has had the transcript of his call with Zelensky declassified and will present it in full publicly on Wednesday.
The actual backdrop to the faux scandal centers on the President firing Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence, along with his hyperactive assistant Sue Gordon, in late July and early August and the firing of John Bolton from the NSC on September 10th, although Bolton’s firing had been mooted well before the hammer came down. Commentary on those firings noted that the President was finally free to conduct his own foreign policy. Indeed, when Speaker Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, she focused on the President’s Article II powers under the U.S. Constitution to conduct the foreign policy of the United States and Trump claiming he can “do anything he wants.” Bolton is reported to have had huge fights with Trump about releasing lethal aid to Ukraine with Trump arguing that other nations should play a much more significant role.
