The sham continues

Democrats in the Senate are desperately pushing for a rigged process:
On the eve of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, the Senate leader proposed a compressed calendar for opening statements, White House lawyers argued for swift rejection of the “flimsy” charges and the Capitol braced for the contentious proceedings unfolding in an election year.

Final trial preparations were underway Monday on a tense day of plodding developments with Trump’s legacy — and the judgment of both parties in Congress — at stake.

The president’s legal team, in its first full filing for the impeachment court, argued that Trump did “absolutely nothing wrong” and urged the Senate to swiftly reject the “flawed″ case against him.

“All of this is a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn,” the president’s lawyers wrote. “The articles should be rejected and the president should immediately be acquitted.”

The brief from the White House, and the House Democratic response, comes as the Senate could be facing 12-hour sessions for the rare Senate trial, with some of the very senators running to replace Trump as president sitting as jurors.
It will be interesting to see if the Democrats still want to drag this out as it becomes clear that the whole effort is tending to work against them. But then, as the rumored leak about Adam Schiff tends to suggest, they may not have any choice in the matter as those identified by Q as criminals are desperate to stop the god-emperor's Storm.

And the President's acquittal won't stop the Democrats from hugging the impeachment slot machine all the way to November 2020. Losers.

Anybody got a good link to an article about this?

It doesn't matter to the Democrats. They will still vote for the geniuses like Pelosi, Shitff, Nadler, Waters, AOC, Omar, Green, Lee...it just doesn't matter.

Blogger Akulkis January 21, 2020 8:32 AM  

While NSA intel of Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi, etc. doing evil things might not be usable in a trial, there's nothing to prevent it from getting leaked all over the internet. Romney, Collins and Murkowski could then be brought in, individually, for a little chat about which party they are members of, and what happens when a traitor who is dirty attacks a superior who is clean.

Blogger Clay January 21, 2020 8:36 AM  

BTW...I get so sick of hearing "the American people aren't stupid" on all the "news channels"

Yes, they are. At least, half of them. Why don't the news nerds adjust the way the refer to the "American people"? Call it like it is.

Blogger ZhukovG January 21, 2020 8:37 AM  

On the surface, dismissal of charges would seem to favor the Democrats. They could make all manner of claims without having to prove them. From a 'stir up the base', 'get out the vote' perspective this would seem to be what they would want.

However, if they are simply trying to delay the storm or cut a deal then perhaps not.

Blogger Iron Spartan January 21, 2020 8:48 AM  

They way I see it, the impeachment proceedings in the Senate have nothing to do with the God Emperor and everything to do with getting Bernie and Warren off the campaign trail until after Super Tuesday.

That explains the delays in starting the Senate trail better than anything else I have found.

Blogger Karen took the Kids January 21, 2020 8:54 AM  

If the charges are dropped, the Democrats will just say the Russians hacked the trial or whatever. I'd be more worried about conniving cuckservatives in the senate if I was TGE. They never miss an opportunity to spin their bowties.

Clay, it's part of American culture to be ignorant, just like it's part of Irish culture to get very drunk, and part of Welsh culture to make love to sheep. Every ethnicity has their own oddity and it's better to accept it and move on than to deny it.

Blogger The Cooler January 21, 2020 9:16 AM  

There's a 300-level Fake News lesson in all of this.

The President's position:

Even if Trump had done everything of which he is accused, these things are not impeachable offenses.

Media Spin:

President's lawyers say abuse of power and obstruction of Congress are not impeachable offenses.

Rhetorically subtle, but different world's, dialectically. There is no way anyone with an IQ under 120ish has an immunity to such manipulation -- it's just not possible. Which is what percentile?

The Media truly are the enemy of the American People.

Blogger Pope Cleophus I January 21, 2020 9:25 AM  

But the media does,in fact, consider only democratic voters as being smart. If you live outside of the DC-NYC-Boston corridor or on the left coast, they consider you to be a bumpkin in flyover country. The media is full of morons calling coast (and large city) morons smart.

Blogger Apoliteia January 21, 2020 9:44 AM  

Dragging this impeachment case all the way into the election year is so obvious as to its goals its cringey, even to a foreigner with sporadic information. Well, at least they're transparent, in a sense.

Blogger xevious2030 January 21, 2020 10:04 AM  

“so sick of hearing 'the American people aren't stupid.’"

Awesome point. Their posturing aside as the voice of sensibility, half the voters voted for Clinton, half for Trump. The liars obviously don’t believe the American people in general are not stupid. By default, they would have to consider half the voting public as stupid, foolish, or brainwashed. The “Deplorables.” But then, liars.

Blogger Cataline Sergius January 21, 2020 10:18 AM  

Trump's opponents are dim.

If Warren or Sanders had an ounce of brains between them they would have recused themselves on the grounds that they would directly benefit from Trumps removal from office.

It is to their benefit to have this trial over and done with as fast as possible.

There is no way in hell this trial isn't going to hurt the Democrats.

They have no direct control and what little leverage they have depends on the Gang of Three recruiting a Fourth cuckservative.

Only among the circa 1900-1920 wave of immigrants, and maybe the Irish during the potato famine.

Absolutely NOT true about previous generations.

"They have no direct control and what little leverage they have depends on the Gang of Three recruiting a Fourth cuckservative."

51 votes isn't enough for a conviction.

The constitution requires a 2/3 majority to convict.

There is absolutely no way in hell that 47 Democrats are going to flip 20 Republicans to get the required 2/3 of the Senate.

This is nothing but political theater, and has never been anything but that. It was evident from the morning after election Day, when all of the low IQ types (Shiela Jackson Lee, for example) immediately started running yelling for everyone who could hear "we're going to impeach him!" Which all means that they made an attempt to have a strategery meeting (sorry, but pissing off the independants with this clown show can, in no way, be dignified with the word "strategy"), and phony impeachment is all they could come up with.

But they needed to start talking about it immediately so that they could whip up their dimwitted voters to capture the House or Representatives.

Recent GateWay Pundit headline: "BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: WE CAUGHT HIM! Rep. Adam Schiff Caught Leaking Classified Information from House Committee in Effort to Damage President Trump".

The perps are scrambling hard to cover their butts, do their master's bidding, and cover for the threatened Cabal. This has nothing to do with law, justice, Trump, or the best future for America & her people.

Blogger Dr Caveman January 21, 2020 12:10 PM  

The Dems are going to have to ride this till the end now. Unfortunately for them, all potential dirt on Trump has been aired exhaustively ages ago, and it's just another Nothing Burger.

There are a ton of skeletons in the Democratic closet though, and now that the Senate is in control, hopefully some will be dragged into the light.

Shane, I don't "deny" it. That doesn't mean I have to like it. But, I, am not inclined to move on, either. Ethnicity should have nothing to do with it. It's politics. It was integration of the Public School system. The blacks were just not ready to be brought into that system. It should have been gradual. I was there, I saw it.

Gradual? I guess if the frog is boiled slow enough you can have no one notice, but it still kills the frog. It wasn't possible to get Slovaks and Czechs to cooperate for more then a couple decades and that was one of the better European cases.

CNN was on my gym this morning and I glanced a headline about how Senate Republicans were not using the trial rules that were laid out by the Clinton impeachment trial.

Nevermind that Clinton was acquitted under those rules.

They really are that incredibly dumb and desperate.

Beginning to think dems are trying to screw up Senate schedule for justice appointments and up delay session just long enough to announce demise of rbg during election cycle to mobilize the pro-abortion vote. Added bonus of further polarizing low info populace in favor of the "trump investigated a criminal to benefit himself" narrative.

The house Democrats and crying Chuck want only their witnesses and their rules. Cocaine Mitch and Lying Lyndsey want no witnesses. TGE wants to pull the pants on both sides.

@1 It's the party of lawfare. Schiff and maybe Nadler, will just start new investigations into something they claim Trump has done. Schiff has to, it's the only way he can claim that charges brought against him are political to try and keep from being indicted.

Metaphors are honourable and all, but this is not true: "if the frog is boiled slow enough you can have no one notice, but it still kills the frog". It's not scientific: frogs will jump out of a slowly warming pot just as quickly as they will out of boiling water.

This is just a continuation of the dem strategy since Nov 2016, and will continue until a dem is in the white house in 2033. This agitation and outrage-mongering has been used to recruit for revolutions since the invention of the newspaper, and probably before.

History will be as kind to them as it was to the prosecutors in the Dreyfuss Affair in France, or Salem, Massachusetts.

-ish.

Recognizing the difference between the President's position and the media's spin of that position doesn't immediately or necessarily inform one of the Intention involved in the difference: Such a recognition requires a certain unpacking, thus revealing it's scale and scope.

It is Intention that structures gaslighting; it is that Intention the intellectually un-gifted haven't a chance of unpacking to the extent of being able to critically manipulate the Intention or it's maliciousness. If they could, they would be unstoppably furious, not confused.

As such, best case scenarios often involve cognitive dissonance, apathy, submission to authorized authority, willingness to compromise and/or a diminished will to commit, etc. The West is high on these things; main-stream media are the pushers.

If this a delay to hurt warren and sanders, then maybe they really want Mayor Pete for their candidate. Pete would break some serious barriers down, and probably would move their agenda further then Sanders or Warren would be able too. If you can get people to vote for Pete, then you can get them to believe anything you want.

Where I work is not particularly Trump-friendly. It also isn't super supportive of any Democrats. Not a peep about the impeachment. Or the fact the Democrats have had a few Presidential debates. I definitely see a Trumpslide coming up.

Razorfist has covered a couple of the debates so far, and brought up the point that the party initiating impeachment processes has not fared well in the following House and Senate races. If the Republicans field some half way decent candidates I could see them regaining the House by 2022.

No doubt the GOP establishment will try to avoid that misstep.

If Trump is able to dragoon the GOPe into running actual candidates, who actually try to win, instead of ¡Little Jebbies!, we'll know that it's TGE's party now.
