(Fred Weinberg) – Constitutional crisis?
The President of the United States of America fires a smarmy little jerk masquerading as J. Edgar Hoover and that is a Constitutional crisis?
Memo to Democrat and media snowflakes everywhere: Get a grip.
The day after James Comey’s well deserved firing, his acting replacement declared to the Senate Intelligence Committee (yeah, they really call it that) that the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign continues unabated, is “adequately resourced” and is being conducted by the same agents as it was the day before Comey’s firing. (And make no mistake about it, James Comey will NEVER be mistaken for Efrem Zimbalist Jr.)
OK, then. What, exactly is the Democrat media’s problem?
Start with the fact that Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States of America.
They just hate this guy. Maybe more so than they hated Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.
Any excuse for an attempt to delegitimize the election brings these clowns to high dudgeon like bringing a pot of water to a boil. Like a college fraternity toga party or road trip.
Never mind the facts. The commies convinced more than 60,000,000 Americans to vote for Trump in critical states. Duck and cover. Get under those desks. Americans are too stupid to make a decision on who should lead them. It reminds me of the time (2015) Nevada’s faux GOP Governor, Brian Sandoval, said Nevadans were too stupid to elect their own school boards.
Unless I miss my guess, the American public is behind Trump today and will be behind him during the midterms in 2018 and during his re-election campaign in 2020. The reliably Democrat press has so alienated many of their viewers and readers that they can’t see it. They only read the same polls which were so wrong in 2016. They make up comparisons to Watergate which happened before many of them were born.
Those of us who were around for Watergate, know the difference.
In the case of Watergate, some of President Nixon’s re-election staff were involved in planning and financing a third rate burglary at the Democrat headquarters. After the burglars got caught, instead of falling on the grenade, some of them took it to Nixon. Nixon got involved in the cover-up.
He resigned after the House voted out an impeachment resolution.
There is, even today, a split opinion on whether or not Nixon might have won a Senate trial like Bill Clinton did.
He chose not to find out, probably to the benefit of the nation.
But even in the worst of Watergate, we did NOT have a “Constitutional crisis” because the system worked. Further, during that time, Nixon presided over the resignation of Spiro Agnew as Vice President after Agnew was caught taking money as the Governor of Maryland and the appointment of Gerald Ford to replace Agnew.
When Ford was sworn in, one his first actions was to pardon Nixon, even though he knew that would (and did) kill his chances of winning the 1976 election. He did so to avoid gridlock for nearly three years.
Most of the lamestream media wouldn’t know a Constitutional crisis if it bit them on their well upholstered posteriors.
By and large, even as full as the Washington swamp is today, our system works on issues writ large.
It’s the every day stuff which is being ignored by everyone but President and his staff.
By 2019—because he’s been paying attention to those issues—he may well have made a dent and the swamp could be 25 per cent more empty.
That would be enough to see him canonized by the average voter.
And he might just tell the Democrat infested media, “bring it!” Because that’s what got him elected in the first place.
