from Brent Smith for World net Daily:
Please don’t do this, Mitch!
Rush Limbaugh reported this week that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might not even put the Senate impeachment trial to a vote – that he may just dismiss the whole thing as the sham that it is and not waste any time on it. The other option McConnell he is said to be considering is to have a lightning fast trial and move for acquittal.
Don’t do it, Mitch! Don’t do what Republicans are known for – taking the easy way out.
I know this is the conventional wisdom. I understand that completely. From an emotional standpoint, we are all so disappointed and angered by the attempts to railroad the president that we just want it all to go away.
But this would be a big mistake.
We have been granted an opportunity – literally of a lifetime and beyond, an opportunity to at least try to set things right in Washington – to drain the swamp, as it were. And if after this spectacle, you still don’t think the “swamp” really exists, you are either willfully stupid or a swamp rat yourself.
The existence of the D.C. swamp is clearer than it’s ever been, and we finally have a mechanism to expose and squash it. So we had better take advantage, for we may not get another bite at this apple.
We are rapidly losing our country, and as it continues to devolve, it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish between the United States and a banana republic.
The unelected agencies of our federal government have grown so powerful that they’ve come within a hair’s breadth of being able to remove a seated president of the United States – arguably thought to be the most powerful individual in the world.
And it’s not just because they hate the guy. They surely do, but it’s much deeper and more systemic than that. He’s the man, the only man in modern history, to not just talk about it but actually challenge their status quo. They realize that if he succeeds, there’s a good chance their gravy train of power and money comes to an abrupt halt. So he must be dealt with, by any means necessary. Thus the multi-year crusade against him.
