From Politico:

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings.

His tweets:

Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis.

In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings.

Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.

Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust.

Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment.

In fact, Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

Impeachment, which is a special form of indictment, does not even require probable cause that a crime (e.g., obstruction of justice) has been committed; it simply requires a finding that an official has engaged in careless, abusive, corrupt, or otherwise dishonorable conduct.

While impeachment should be undertaken only in extraordinary circumstances, the risk we face in an environment of extreme partisanship is not that Congress will employ it as a remedy too often but rather that Congress will employ it so rarely that it cannot deter misconduct.

Our system of checks and balances relies on each branch’s jealously guarding its powers and upholding its duties under our Constitution. When loyalty to a political party or to an individual trumps loyalty to the Constitution, the Rule of Law—the foundation of liberty—crumbles.

We’ve witnessed members of Congress from both parties shift their views 180 degrees—on the importance of character, on the principles of obstruction of justice—depending on whether they’re discussing Bill Clinton or Donald Trump.

Few members of Congress even read Mueller’s report; their minds were made up based on partisan affiliation—and it showed, with representatives and senators from both parties issuing definitive statements on the 448-page report’s conclusions within just hours of its release.

America’s institutions depend on officials to uphold both the rules and spirit of our constitutional system even when to do so is personally inconvenient or yields a politically unfavorable outcome. Our Constitution is brilliant and awesome; it deserves a government to match it.

Jon Voight Releases Awesome New Video Praising Trump, Left Will Hate It

Great video!

Published

on

Actor Jon Voight has not been shy about his support for President Trump, and he continues to be one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, which in and of itself is a tough gig. Yet, no matter the hate he gets, he continues to fearlessly proclaim what he believes in, with no worry of the consequences. In fact, Voight just released a new video where he praises Donald Trump and slams folks on the left for their attacks on the president. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Voight started by targeting the Left: This is not peace. This is not love; this is hate among the radical Left. No amount of “book-smart” will show the given policy of what truth stands for. Truth is a powerful emotion. Love is what we should be voting for, and I must say that we, the Republican party, have voted for renewal, for a place of safety, a community where all can have peace. But this is war among the Left; they have hate; it’s like a venom. No words of God, no words of love, but a radical emotion of hate. He segued to the president: “I’ve said this many times and I am saying it again from the deep truths of my heart and soul: President Trump is a man of truths, love and justice for the American people and also for the people of a sacred place: Israel. Not only does he love our country, the United States of America, but he has a love for the people of all nations. “ Voight concluded with the hope that members of the Left would put aside their hatred and stand for liberty and justice: “Let us pray for peace; let us pray for this country, that President Trump will take…

AOC’s At It Again. Look What She Wants To Be Abolished Now.

More nuttiness from the Peanut Gallery.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just cannot keep herself from saying something stupid to save her life. It’s become so common place to see a news story about something ridiculous that’s come out of her mouth that it almost feels odd when there’s not a story about her somewhere. AOC recently posted an Instagram Live Story, something she loves to do, despite how often she makes a fool of herself, mocking the U.S. voting system, calling for the abolishment of the Electoral College. These folks absolutely want to silence anyone and everyone who doesn’t live in a major urban center, which also happen to be run mostly by liberals. via The Daily Wire: “We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she recorded an empty desert highway. “Many votes here as you can see — [it’s a] very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way, can you?” The self-proclaimed “radical” congresswoman cited a March 2019 report from New York Magazine’s daily Intelligencer newsletter titled “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.” She subsequently noted that the report is for “all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam.” Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities. “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.” AOC went on to say, “You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families…
