The American Public Is Losing In the Impeachment Battle [Opinion]

A brilliant opinion piece from Dr. Bruce L. Hartman…

What’s going in Washington is horrifying to watch. It is like watching children on the playground yell at each other about who did what first. A game of one-upmanship where the truth gets buried. A game that the media accentuates to gain ratings and advertisers. Meanwhile, the American people sit horrified, akin to how the children of screaming parents feel.

Nancy Pelosi declares that she is starting an impeachment hearing to honor the founding fathers of our country. It is a move not prompted by the facts, but she could no longer control the unruly gangs that make up the Democratic coalition in the House of Representatives. Knowing full well that the two-year investigation by Mueller failed, here was another chance to try something new.

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee intentionally states words that the president did not say. When challenged, he declared it was only a parody. In the pursuit of gaining fame, he aggressively seeks out cameras to wax on about what a great person he is and how he is working for the good of America.

The national media, seeing an opportunity to gain more revenue, prints headlines that are downright wrong. Creating headlines that the president is coming unglued. Perpetuating a sense that our president is out of control.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

Hidden in this story of impeachment are the real facts. Sure, the president asked a foreign leader to investigate Hunter Biden’s role in the Ukraine. Frankly, I would have done the same thing. They claimed he pressured the Ukrainian President when, in fact, the Ukrainian president acknowledged he didn’t feel pressured.

Why wouldn’t the president ask this question, once you know the facts. Hunter Biden was paid over one hundred thousand dollars a month to sit on a board of a Ukrainian company that had a bad reputation. Nowhere in his resume did it show he had any ability to help guide this company. His father, Joe Biden pressured the powers in the Ukraine to stop an investigation into the company or he would withhold one billion dollars in funding.

Hunter Biden, throughout his life, had received the benefit and privilege of having a powerful father. When he was in the armed service, he was caught using cocaine. Instead of being dishonorably discharged, he received a waiver of release. He went to some of America’s best college, but never achieved the success of his compatriots. When you look at his resume, he was able to gain contacts—not through his abilities—but through his dad’s influence. Influence that is not available for the young person struggling to make a life who goes to college and amasses a large amount of debt.

You bet I would have asked the same question the president did. In the national media television coverage last week, the president received over four hundred and twenty minutes of negative press. While only forty-two minutes were spent on the Hunter Biden issue.

The president himself is acting like a petulant child and needs to back off. Sure, he feels wronged, but he is the president and needs to hold himself to a higher standard. I wish I or anyone had the power to control his twitter outbursts. I would make him write on the chalkboard ten thousand times the famous Teddy Roosevelt quote, “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” Heck, if it was humanly possible, one million times!
The president is his own worst enemy and has not learned that his opponents know how to attack him. They know how to rile him up. Sure, the media is mostly against him. Sure, the Democrats will do anything to slow him down. But you don’t fight back with words. You fight back by doing the best job you can.
So here we sit, watching two out-of-control factions publicly embarrass us on an international stage.

We are the ones who elected them. We are the ones who pay unusually high taxes to support them. We are the ones who must comply with disinterested government workers inane rules.

We are the ones whose trust level of our leaders has sunk to 17 percent—a remarkable low when only a few decades ago it ran well into the 70 percent range. We no longer look up to our leaders but instead are ashamed.

The American people know the answer to this problem. The answer is for our politicians to develop hearts that forgive first and judge last. We know the answer is tolerance and not intolerance. We know more is accomplished through love than anger.

We know that our pursuits shouldn’t be to gain fame but to serve. We know that through vengeance there are no winners. We know that listening is far better than talking.

I know it has been declared by the “politically correct police” to not mention Jesus. But the American people do know that following, Christian values will end the acrimony.

In times of identity politics, there is no bigger group than the neglected Christian voice. Maybe today our pastors will speak up. Maybe today people of faith will get a chance to voice their beliefs.

Why not try to love our neighbors? Why not try to turn the other cheek? We, the American public, are exhausted from the squabbling and want our politicians to become as great as the everyday American.

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1201984322909229056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201984322909229056&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/trippwhitbeck/status/1201992151292432384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201992151292432384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/sunscreen_ceo/status/1201985832703287296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985832703287296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/1962Kiser/status/1201985108128829440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985108128829440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/laurenduca/status/1201930900445057024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201930900445057024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/notaguido1/status/1201943648583200769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201943648583200769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/Thomas_Firenze/status/1201996468757749760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201996468757749760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/FourthHailMary/status/1201985912328130561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985912328130561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/markbeenyc/status/1201987371115388928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201987371115388928&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/navymig/status/1201985998801911808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985998801911808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/alexsimonelis/status/1201986045719568384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201986045719568384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F H/T: Twitchy

‘Practice Things Like An Eye Gouge!’ Project Veritas Infiltrates Antifa, Learns Devastating Truths

These guys aren’t playing around!

“Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” says Antifa member, Nicholas Cifuni. Pretty sickening. Then again, nothing about the anti-fascist fascist movement is on the level. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had an operative infiltrate an Antifa outfit in Portland. What was learned is pretty devastating. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLR76_e_koE&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr announced Thursday that investigations of recent violence spinning out of protests yielded evidence that not only are various “extremist” groups taking advantage of the unrest for their own ends, but that “foreign actors” are also getting involved. […] Barr said that there is evidence that those extremists include Antifa and other groups of different political persuasions, as well as “foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1267091647042473985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267091647042473985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-james-okeefe-infiltrates-antifa%2F Here’s more Antifa nonsense… https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268693940376604677 https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1268692420834799617 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1268684723053789184 https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1268684820151844864 https://twitter.com/SamParkerSenate/status/1268529530655793152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529530655793152&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Four-revolution-cannot-be-stopped-project-veritas-infiltrates-antifa-exposing-the-terrorist-movement-and-holy-crap-watch%2F https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268686572439904260
