Beware the Quid Pro Quo

| Opinion | November 14, 2019

Quid Pro Quo, Quid Pro Quo. That’s the name of the song that everyone seems to know. With anger in their eyes and resolution in their cold hearts, talking heads on CNN, MSNBC, FOX and CBS with the scripted precision of a well-practiced mantra, boldly state that the President had violated the Constitution and Federal Law by declaring he had committed a Quid Pro Quo, a mortal sin as well as a high crime and misdemeanor. Elected Democrats are falling all over each other seeking face time in front of the cameras as they join the Quid Pro Quo chorus.

Quid Pro Quo are the words that defame. The Quid Pro Quo will bring down he who must not be named.

The President who is the one commonly believed to be “He who must be named”, while proclaiming his own conversational perfection, has redirected the Quid Pro Quo to none other than Uncle Joe Biden.

Legal scholars without any pauses have scoured CARA.AI and could not find any cases. They questioned their legal professors and studied their Nook. No where could they find the Quid Pro Quo, no matter how hard they looked. Finally, in a great act of desperation, they even read the documents that founded our nation. Alas swearing that they really, really tried, they were forced to declare that there is no Quid Pro Quo and fell down and cried.

Adam and Nancy would not have been so shocked, had they remembered ABC’s “School House Rock”. Somewhere in the shadows can be heard a unrequited laws lament; I’m just a bill, yes I’m only a bill, and I got as far as Capitol Hill. Well, now I’m stuck in committee, and I’ll sit here and wait. While a few key Congressmen discuss and debate whether they should let me be a law. How I hope and pray that they will, but today I am still just a bill.
You see that in their discourse, they put the cart before the horse. They are prosecuting based on a law that has not been passed. Now, doing that is in violation of the Constitution.


The absurdity of the current misleading discourse that dominates the airwaves is that Quid Pro Quo is required for us to function in a civil society. You give the butcher some money, he gives you some meat. Quid Pro Quo. You promise the woman you love that you will honor, cherish and obey and she promises to marry you. Quid Pro Quo. The United States promises to help defend Turkey through NATO and they allow us to have a military air base in their sovereign territory. Quid Pro Quo. All international, commercial, and interpersonal relationships are dependent on Quid Pro Quo. For a President not to engage in Quid Pro Quo could be viewed as a dereliction of duty.

You may not like Donald J. Trump, you may disagree with his foreign policy decisions and methodologies, fine. That is not high crimes and misdemeanors. We must not allow Quid Pro Quo to be used as a justification for impeachment. It is the Democrats who are abusing the Constitution. The real issues of personality and policy as envisioned in the Constitution was to be decided by elections and not through the abuse of political power and ignoring due process of law. Democrats, it is time to grow up and remember what it means to have a peaceful transition of power. Political courage and change is supposed to be expressed through free elections. You have set a precedent which is exposing the Democrat party as vicious fascists. Shame on you.
