Have the Democrats Become the Face of the Revolutionary Communist Party?– “…before Trump was even moved into the White House, Democrat lawless lawmakers were haranguing the public with cries of impeachment.“
by Bill Lockwood
The Revolutionary Communist Party states as its goal to bring about “massive political resistance” to the system of capitalism, which they say, is “concentrated in the ruling class and institutions and agencies.” America is a system of “imperialism” to the communists, which demands more than simple reform. It requires revolution among the masses of people.
From the beginning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, before Trump was even moved into the White House, Democrat lawless lawmakers were haranguing the public with cries of impeachment. Maxine Waters (D-CA), for example, led the mutinous minions in Congress on a rampage against the president. Now comes Al Green (D-TX) to the forefront.
As reported by The Hill, Rep. Al Green announced on Wednesday that he will force a vote on the House floor to impeach President Trump before Christmas. On what charges will Green bring a vote on impeachment hearings? Says Green in a speech on the House floor: “… there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism. There will be a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on the impeachment of the president.”
Green has previously introduced articles of impeachment, being the loudest recent voice in the Democratic chorus calling for the removal of Donald Trump from office. The liberal MSM has also continually beat the drum for impeachment proceedings against our president, most recently by The New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg whose recent article is entitled, “Democrats Should Embrace Impeachment.”
Before making a few observations it is helpful to refer back to our Founding Charter, The Constitution. Not that the Democrats have any concern for the Constitution, because they do not in any way shape or form. Few Republicans do either. Nevertheless, the Constitutional word “impeachment” (Article I, Section 2, Clause 5) refers simply to the bringing of formal charges in the House and Senate against an elected officer.
Constitutionally, a majority vote of the House of Representatives, where Al Green serves from the 9th District in Texas, is required to bring the charges which are then to be tried before the Senate (Article I, Section 3, Clause 6). Conviction of these charges demands a two-thirds Senatorial vote.
What is important here, however, is that the Framers placed the particular grounds of impeachment in the Constitution itself—Article II, Section 4. “…civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
These grounds were intentionally specified in order to prevent impeachment from becoming a tool by which political opponents might remove others from office. As noted in The Heritage Foundation, “…it is agreed by virtually all that the impeachment remedy was to be used in only the most extreme situations, …”
Democrats Have Become Revcom
Nothing demonstrates how radical leftist the Democrats have become than the promise of impeachment proceedings by Al Green. What specific charges does he mention? All political socialistic lefty nonsense. “An inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia … blah blah blah.” Trump is a hater! And this from a man who has a law degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, TX.
This is precisely what the founders were trying to prevent—impeachment becoming a political tool. A logical outcome this to the complete trashing of our Constitutional system fostered by the likes of Green.
Al Green is acting more like a college child throwing temper tantrums and threatening to shut down free speech because he does not like the speaker. He is trying to stir up the street masses by his incendiary rhetoric, ala The Revolutionary Communist Party. Each and every charge he levels against Trump is totally in the eye of the beholder. No dereliction of duty against Trump, and certainly no impeachable offenses measuring up to “treason, bribery, or high crimes.”
Why America is Losing
But Al Green’s unfounded rants are the reason Republicans continue to lose the ground of freedom even though they remain in the majority in Congress and occupy the White House.
During the tenure of Barack Obama a good case could be made that he committed impeachable offenses—many of them. He opened his administration with illegal executive orders to the Department of Justice that they not enforce the law of the land regarding the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Close on the heels of that was the lawless gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious, designed to remove our 2d Amendment rights in this nation. When Congress demanded documents related thereto, Obama said “no.” End of story. Lawless and unbridled.
The Iran Nuke Deal is an impeachable offense because Obama negotiated a secret “treaty.” Treaties are authorized only to Congress, but Obama thumbed his nose at the rule of law. Hillary’s private illegal email server was well-known by the Obama White House, yet neither of these officials have been called to official account for this impeachable offense.
Then we have Obama’s DOJ actually being caught spying on AP reporters while Obama’s IRS was illegally targeting conservative groups. And who can forget Benghazi-gate of 2012 and the blatant bold lies issuing from the White House itself from Obama’s spokeswoman Susan Rice?
After this comes the infamous lie supporting ObamaCare: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” This is followed by the Illegal-Alien Amnesty that President Obama issued by executive order—a completely illegal and unconstitutional move. There are recess-appointments, the appointment of czars, the line-item veto on Congressional laws sitting on his desk—and more.
Yet in all of this the Republicans maintained a weak-spined, weak-kneed, milquetoast position, refusing to bring formal charges against a communist rogue president who was destroying our very constitutional system. Guardians of the Republic they were not.
Instead, they were concerned that the American public would find them unfavorable. To add insult to injury, the Republicans refused to defund any of Obama’s unconstitutional programs such as ObamaCare. Budget after budget was passed in which they funded every thing the Democrats wished.
But let a Republican occupy the White House and the Democrats are unashamed to go to the very extreme. Democrats are always ready to fight—even for socialist revolution. Faint-hearted Republicans is why America has moved so very far left.
