Schiff Impeachment Hearings

The Impeachment Colosseum day one summary – Gladiators 1 – Lions 0

Impeach !

This became the siren call of Democrats and their allies in the media on day one of the Trump Presidency. Roll tape!

Start at 4:22-8:05

The President’s first term and the country has been subjected to an array of “we got him” moments. Commencing with the Russia Hoax, moving on to the Campaign Finance Violations, the Emoluments Clause, the “Fine People on Both Sides” hoax, the S ___hole countries accusation, to now the Ukraine Quid Pro Quo Call. And believe me, I left out many of the more absurd charges hurled at this President over the last three years. Like a crusade, Americans were told to believe the President was a Traitor, a Grifter, a Klansman, and now a  Watergate 2.0 Nixon.

Each hypothetical and dubious attempt went down in flames and it seems we may have reached the crescendo as the Democrats stage “Impeachment Inquiry Hearings.” Albeit no official vote on the house floor has been taken to trigger such event. Yes, there was a vote to establish rules on the process Democrats would utilize, but no person in Congress has cast a vote to open an Impeachment Inquiry. The U.S. Constitution be damned! Day one stars  Acting Ambassador to the Ukraine, Bill Taylor, and George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department. Both men had previously given clandestine testimony in the bowels of the Capitol having transcripts of said testimony under Schiff’s lock and key. Only after Republicans, took to the airways demanding transparency and pointing out the lack of due process and fairness, were those transcripts released on the eve of open hearings..

Bewildered much? Allow me to reiterate the Democrat talking points for illumination( hat/ tip James Cagney). Trump is ” a dirty rat!”  He is an existential threat to our very Democracy and thinks he is above the law. No person is above the law. Shakedown is the term bantered about. The script has Trump demanding that the newly elected leader of Ukraine dig up dirt on his political opponent in the 2020 race,  and threatening military funding if he did not comply. All this while twenty or more listened on the line as he made the call. See … it’s all dark and unconstitutional. See … National Security,  see … Do you see? Look really hard. There is the whistleblower aka CIA analyst mole with no first- hand knowledge of the conversation. The career diplomats who objected to Trump’s Foreign policy despite confirming the policy has benefited Ukraine more than the previous Administration. The military aid which actually was released to Ukraine without and quid pro quo. The Democrats and media are still questioning the validity of Trump’s released transcript of the call inferring it was edited. This despite their star witness, Alexander Vindman, testifying the transcript was accurate. What is the Impeachable offense?

Still confused? Apparently so are Congresswoman Stefanick( NY). Congressman Jim Jordan (OH), and Republican Congressman Ratcliffe( Tx).

Videos of their cross-examination are the perfect summary of Day One in the Arena. Democrats orchestrated and designed their questions to move the needle of public opinion, including Senators, which is not likely after the first day’s performances. Perhaps Day two will bring forth the “blockbuster revelations” the Democrats and Media promised and hyped. But if you ask me, I am betting all my money on the Gladiators.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living abroad in Europe as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
