When the Obama administration began investigating opposition candidate Donald Trump, the Dems and press were silent. When Trump suggests investigating the apparently corrupt Biden’s, he is accused of violating the Constitution. Referring to the Biden’s, Obi-Wan Kenobi/Pelosi/Schiff are heard incanting, “Those are not the Droids you are looking for.”
In my last two articles I have discussed the foibles of human perception and the deductions and reaction errors we can make based on these.
In those articles I targeted examples based on the actions and charges being made by Democrats in Congress and the media. I admit that both sides of the political spectrum can fall victim to this form of jumping to conclusions. It is a good time once again to remember the words of James Madison, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”
As Madison points out, men are not angels, and it is vital that we are a people of principle who follow the law. The law is not perfect but it is the best tool we have.
In the case of the elected Democrats and the Deep State against President Trump, all issues of proper evidence and due process of law have been thrown out. It matters not how sure you may be of the President’s guilt; those basic rules must be followed to protect ourselves from ourselves. Consider the following:
The rules of allowing hearsay evidence from whistle-blowers were changed just to be able to embarrass Donald Trump
The legal organization to protect whistle-blowers was established specifically to bring down Donald Trump
The lawyers employed by the whistle-blower represented the Clinton’s
Nancy Pelosi has not followed regular order by not calling for a vote on impeachment
The Democrat led committees investigating Trump and the Ukraine conversation have refused to let the Republicans cross-examine the witnesses. Further, the Republicans have not been permitted to present exculpatory witnesses
Hearsay evidence and creative writing by Adam Schiff has been given more credence than actual transcripts of the conversation and direct statements by the President of the Ukraine. Opinion has more credence than evidence
Ignoring the Constitution, the President has not been allowed to directly confront his accuser
The actions by the Democrats and the Deep State have made it impossible for any President to conduct foreign policy in private with other heads of state. That is a violation of the balance of power and borders on treason.
Israelis Prime Minister Golda Meir is attributed to saying, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
Today we might say, “The current insanity will not end until Democrats love their country more than they hate Donald Trump.”
Donald Trump was declared guilty before he took his oath in office. Ever since there has been a massive search for the evidence of his guilt. Despite proclamations no evidence has risen to the level of impeachment. Nancy Pelosi ignoring due process is typical of fascist dictators. The surprising thing is that Democrats do not fear Republicans showing the same lack of character when the tables are turned. They are likely correct. They know that unlike what they are doing, Republicans respect the Constitution. It is a tale worthy of a parable.
