Dems Demand Resignation, Removal, or Impeachment

With just nine days left in his term, Democrats are again trying to “heal the nation” by ousting Donald Trump.

Democrats, in their sincere desire to heal the nation (ahem), are demanding that President Donald Trump resign just days before he’ll leave office. Short of that, they’re demanding that Vice President Mike Pence use the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to declare Trump unfit and remove him.

Neither of these events is within the power of Democrats to carry out, however, so they’re also in the process of cooking up an event they can control: impeachment. And, again, all this just nine days before Joe Biden is scheduled to take office.

Which prompts us to wonder: Given that tens of millions of Americans continue to believe that Big Tech, Big Media, and the Democrats stole the election from Donald Trump, how, exactly, are actions like these supposed to heal the nation?

We guess the floggings will continue until morale improves.

Not surprisingly, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the driving force behind all this — yes, the same unhinged Nancy Pelosi who disgraced her office (and violated the law) by tearing to shreds the president’s State of the Union speech last February. She seems to think the president is unstable — so much so that last week she told the world about her discussion with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs to ensure that our nation’s nuclear codes are safe from the commander-in-chief. Yes, Nancy Pelosi told our enemies that she’s in charge of our nukes — and yet she’s worried that we have an “unstable president.”

Wethinks she doth project too much.

It might be that Pelosi thinks she has public opinion behind her. After all, a Reuters Ipsos poll taken in the immediate aftermath of last Wednesday’s Capitol riot says the American people, by a 57-43 margin, want Trump out of office before the end of his term. Of course, these are the same polling geniuses who had Biden ahead by nine in Wisconsin and four in Florida.

It might also be that the Democrats and their media bootlickers simply want to drive an even deeper wedge into the Republican Party between those like Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who support Trump, and those like Senators Lisa Murkowski and Pat Toomey, who are calling for him to resign.

Donald Trump isn’t resigning, though, and the Democrats know it. So the House will vote on a resolution today calling on Pence to invoke the 25th and thereby remove the president for being unfit. “In protecting our Constitution and our democracy,” sputtered the speaker, “we will act with urgency, because this president represents an imminent threat to both. As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this president is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

Strange. We don’t recall President Trump grabbing a pitchfork and leading the charge with cries to storm the Capitol, but we do, specifically, remember him saying just minutes before his supporters headed up Pennsylvania Avenue, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), the man most responsible for Biden’s political resurrection, may have tipped his party’s hand regarding impeachment. As National Review’s Zachary Evans reports, “House Democrats are currently circulating one article of impeachment against the president for ‘incitement to insurrection,’ and could vote on the article before Trump leaves office. However, Clyburn indicated that the House may wait to send the article to the Senate for a trial and vote. ‘We’ll take the vote that we should take in the House, and [Nancy Pelosi] will make the determination as to when is the best time to get that vote and get the managers appointed and move that legislation over to the Senate.’”

Why would the Democrats wait on the Senate trial, especially now that they control the upper chamber? “It just so happens,” said Clyburn, “that if it didn’t go over there for 100 days, it could — let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running.”

And yet, if conservative radio host John Fredericks is any indication, the GOP doesn’t need any help from Pelosi, Clyburn, or any other Democrat when it comes to discord among the Republican ranks. “We’re done with the surrender caucus,” Fredericks said, referring to those at the RNC’s annual winter meeting. “We’re done with pina colada Republicans who go to retreats in resorts in Amelia Island in the most important three days of our republic. While Rome burned, they are sipping margaritas out of swizzle sticks.”
