Impeachment Wrap Up Days 4/5 – The Constitution Held The Line, Pelosi and McConnell Crossed It!

By the time this article posts, the Senate has acquitted former President Trump of incitement with a final vote of 57-43, with seven Republicans breaking ranks to vote with the Democrats. Those seven are-Burr, Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse, and Toomey.  Senator Burr had voted that the Impeachment Trial was unconstitutional only to cast the absurd vote to convict in the end. Both Burr and Toomey are not seeking re-election. Please review our summaries of the first three days of the trial here, here, and here.

Trump’s legal team was aggressive sparing nothing laying out there by the House Managers. In doing so, they used video and audio to emphatically show the fraud the managers had perpetrated while putting on their case. The issues of doctored video and tweets, selective edits, ” reportedly “statements as fact, and so forth. It was a brutal confronting of the House Managers lies, false premises, and hypocrisy. A further summary can be read here and here. Despite all of that smackdown( non-legal) term, it exposed the complete lack of merits of the Democrat’s case presented, and the mirror held up to their faces that were the knock – out.

The entire defense’s case lasted only 4 hours. When they have finished, the consensus on Twitter was the Democrat’s case had been blown to smithereens and the talking heads were in a panic.
Highly predictable, they regrouped overnight and pulled a Kavanaugh. Utilizing the complicit media, a story was leaked that Rep. Herrera Beutler(R) had a conversation with McCarthy. The minority leader allegedly recounted a conversation he had with President Trump on the day of the riots, read here.

McCarthy did not confirm this story, but they only needed the leak for Impeachment Manager Raskin to open Day 5, asking for the trial to continue and their team would call witnesses. This was a not so subtle ruse. Van der Veen was beside himself and made it clear that he would depose if they call witnesses that he had up to 300. The feckless Republicans bought into the scheme, and the usual turncoats voted with the Democrats to allow witnesses, including Senator Lindsey Graham. The House Managers were just on the cusp of getting their giddy back in their step when Senator Ted Cruz responded thusly:

Soon after, the witness issue was dropped like a hot potato, and they proceeded with closing arguments and the vote.

The last two days of the second Impeachment Trial for President Donald Trump was a tour de force on the law and the Constitution. Trump’s team gave riveting civics and legal analysis -but it was Van Der Veen’s elocution and execution of the Presidents’ defense that secured the victory. Van der Veen was organized and well prepared but not too overly polished or sterile. There was an everyman quality that was relatable and came across strong when he looked directly into the camera to Americans to drill down on a point. This same rapport could be seen when he made eye contact with all Senators who were objective.

Van der Veen struck a fragile balance, and at times, he was “the Christian” in the coliseum having to negotiate with the ravenous lions’ savagery. While at other times, explaining the law with such spellbinding passion and purpose, he became Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird. No gimmicks, only authentic competency, confidence, charisma, passion, and the US Constitutional law.

Yet again, predictably, the Republican elite establishment could not allow Trump’s righteous vindication – cue Mitch “the schizo-whiplash position king” :

The Right Wire Report has great difficulty assigning who or what faction is more the existential threat to our liberty. But after today’s deceitful and disgraceful act by McConnell, it is clearer that those who claim to represent you while skinning you alive in a boiling pot – take the lead!

The next stop is censure and removal to seek political office ever again. Democrats only need 10 Republican Senators to cross over, and they got 7 on the Impeachment vote! Then possibly the AG charging citizen Trump.

In the short run, the US Constitution and Free Speech held the line for the moment. But at what cost in the long run? Despite the Democrats being exposed as pathological liars and caught red-handed manipulating the American people and justice, the complicit media just does not cover it. Pelosi stands in front of her media lapdogs and ragefully declares how moral and honorable her Impeachment Managers were? Are you kidding me? And Mitch and 7 other Republicans enabled the charade while trying to disembowel Trump and the Republican constituency.

If you ask me victory, these days feels like a long march to a place of no return.

"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 varied experiences 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.
