Does Entire “Success” Of Democrats Depend On Keeping The American People Wildly Ignorant Of Reality?

Authored by JD Heyes via NaturalNews.com,

The few times in our history when Congress has either voted to impeach a president or considered returning articles of impeachment, the process was handled very publicly.

Hearings were not held in secret. Testimony was not taken behind closed doors. Witnesses and evidence were presented out in the open so the American people, through various media of the day, were well aware of what was happening.

The reasons for the openness should be obvious, but alas, they are not for far too many Americans.

First of all, allowing someone accused of criminal activity to face his or her accuser is a fundamental legal principle of our founding.

Secondly, secret trials were banned hundreds of years ago because they are the legal instruments of tyrants: Kings and dictators holding secret proceedings can present phony “evidence” in order to achieve convictions.

Third, the accused are permitted legal representation of their own so they can challenge the prosecution’s witnesses and alleged “evidence.”

None of these founding principles are being applied to the current “impeachment inquiry” involving President Donald Trump.

Democrats, led by Rep. Adam Schiff of California, are holding the inquiry behind closed doors. They are bringing in ‘witnesses’ whose testimony is being sequestered – even as Schiff has been accused of leaking the contents of some witness testimony completely out of context.

Also, no one on the president’s legal team has been able to question any of the witnesses Democrats have called in to testify. So he doesn’t know what’s being said — other than what Schiff is leaking to the “mainstream media,” which is dutifully reporting what they’ve been provided, sans corroboration.

It’s the most un-American legal process one could ever have envisioned. Worse, this is supposedly involving an impeachment process — one that, theoretically, could involve the removal of a duly elected president 63 million Americans voted for. (Related: “Ukraine” whistleblower suddenly not going to testify before Adam Schiff’s secret committee — so what’s the “impeachment inquiry” really for?)

We will rue the day we allow our country to be stolen from us

In short, nothing about this process should be held in secret. Communist countries and others who are run by dictators have secret ‘legal’ proceedings, but clearly none that would involve the leader of the country.

Democracies don’t operate that way and our unique American republic was never supposed to operate in the dark. 

Granted, if the Democrat-controlled House ever does return actual articles of impeachment against President Trump, that will be conducted in the open. But knowing how secretive Democrats have been thus far, it’s a safe bet they’ll attempt to present as “evidence” the “testimony” of so-called “witnesses” who, thus far, have only appeared behind closed doors.

It’s been said that ‘impeachable offenses’ are whatever the House of Representatives say they are in order to satisfy the Constitution’s “high crimes and misdemeanors” impeachment requirement. But clearly the processes employed against Trump are partisan in nature and not based on any semblance of historical precedent.

As Americans, we can’t allow this process to be warped — by one political party and the media. The future of our country is far too important.

“President Trump is a disruptor. That makes some people very happy, and it makes some people very mad,” former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said during a Friday speech at the American Enterprise Institute.

“But if we are a country that lives by the rule of law, we must all accept that we have one president at a time, and that president attained his office by the choice of the American people.

“No policy disagreement with him, no matter how heartfelt, justifies undermining the lawful authority that is vested in his office by the Constitution. … What’s at stake is not President Trump’s policies. What’s at stake is the Constitution,” she added.

She’s exactly right. Nothing is worth losing our country. As long as we continue to have unimpeded free elections, there is always a chance to fix things.

  1. Yep, they have been working very well at dumbing down our children for years in education. Plus with the influx of illegals aliens, who break our law, have way too much influence on these dems. Plus the women’s movement, who look at problems with “feelings”, where babies can be ripped out of the womb at 8 months, where mothers, who wanted daughters got sons, so forcing them thru drugs to the sex the woman wanted.

    And with the Fake News media that is in their pocket, spreading lies, squashing stories of perverts (where are the women who SHOULD BE OUTRAGED), and working with spies, elected officials to leak certain stories to DESTROY people. Also covering up for candidates (Clinton and Biden) and what their criminal activities were.

    Disgusting!

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • Karen, I’m in agreement with every syllable you wrote. This applies to your comments ‘below’ as well. Blessings to you and yours !!!

    Democratic “abortion” company now teaching young children how to “hook up”. No wonder Dems squashed the Epstein/Clinton story about perverts who sleep with young girls.

    What’s really disgusting is that we the taxpayers are paying for this and Dem women are saying this about “women’s health”.

    NOPE, it’s about killing babies for profit and now getting young children ready for Adult sex.

    Truly disgusting.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    lol, Hilary’s “it takes a village” says it’s not going to happen. You are right Hilary, Obamacare is the example of the “it takes a village, but if you are an American you pay or get fine big time”.

    This woman needs to either go to jail for what she did in the State Department, because “what difference does it make now” DOES make a difference to the American Taxpayer who’s taxes you used to play your “private server get rich quick” game.

    Or needs to just go away. But then again, she keeps talking, good for the American People. Fights between Biden, Warren, Hilary, Gabbard showing what they hid in 2016 when Hilary took the nomination from Sanders. It’s really fun to watch. Especially Hilary and Chelsea’s ‘stand up comedy act’. Pathetic.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    The Rino daughter speaks:

    “Character in politics, I believe, is important. It was how I was raised. It’s the way I view the lens of America. I understand what you are saying about policy, but when you are talking about attacking Gold Star families, who have given the ultimate sacrifice more than anyone in this room has given, and you put them through pain. Does it make you feel like this was worth it?”

    Gee father bows to Obama at election time. So that’s character in politics you were raised in? Got it!

    Gold Star families in pain? Gee where was rino father when our Vets needed help, which President Trump has been helping.

    Where was rino father when the “ultimate pain” is loosing a loved one from an illegal alien?

    “And I think people can go to the moment when my dad stopped someone from saying Obama was a Muslim”

    lol, rino daughter he is one. He lied to the American people, then once elected, told a Japenese rep that he was Muslim.

    “It is worth it when I go around the country, and I see people affected by these policies getting to live their American dream again. When I see, it’s happening with those people, and they tell me their stories how they’re so happy they voted for my father. They’re so happy he had the guts to take on those people, to not just accept the status quo.”

    Thank you Don Jr.! Good for you stating FACTS to this rino daughter.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  5. we need to take back our country from the liberal LGBTQ wierdo’s who are brain washing our children go back to prayers in school, the pledge of allegiance, and if they don’t stand for the pledge or the flag they get their butts whipped, if they are offended by either or any part of history too bad for them teach the truth to include the civil war, and that the so called LGBTQ people are mentally ill and should be treated as such not recognized as a product of birth it is a lifestyle choice due to abuse more times than not, if born a boy then you are a boy and if born as a girl you are a girl not a choice learn to live with what God gave you boys play boys sports girls play girls sports not mixed same with bathrooms boys go to boys bathroom and girls go to girls bathroom not good to mix genders that is how unwanted babies are brought about.

  6. Unfortunately, the American people, by and large, have made this (the essence of the article title) very easy to occur. Apathy, laziness, greed and the creep of socialistic progressive nanny state politics has set the stage for a national collapse. The state of the public education system and the lack of accountability, the judicial activism, the debt and the public dole giveaway welfare socialism has put the nation in peril. We are on the verge of collapse. Trump is NOT the problem … PERIOD !
