The Legacy of Low-Bar Impeachment

Since the embarrassing impeachment and failed conviction of President Andrew Johnson in 1868, Americans more or less had avoided that ultimate constitutional method of removing a chief executive from power. The Johnson impeachment had been so steeped in personal hatred, political rivalry, and post-war agendas that the failure by one vote in the Senate to

The Shakespearean Grandeur of Trump Derangement Syndrome

Trump Derangement Syndrome, now playing out in the impeachment proceedings in the House, would require a Shakespeare adequately to describe and understand the way it is playing out as a motivating factor in our politics. The Bard did give us a hint of what is going on in one of his more obscure yet fabulously

Democrats Blind and Babbling to Oblivion

Last week, a friend of mine gave me the perfect metaphor for explaining impeachment. An ancient Buddhist parable relates that six blind men were wandering through the wilderness and encountered an elephant. Since none of them had ever seen such a creature, they each described it based on the part that they could feel. So

Sister Nancy Incarnacion and the H8ters

“Do you hate Donald Trump?” a reporter asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) the other day. Her over-damp eyes flashed, and Sister Nancy Incarnacion charged the reporter. “As a Catholic, I resent your using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone,” she pronounced, the anger in her voice palpable.

Lincoln Enough

A recent poll, widely reported, found that a slight majority of self-described conservatives say Donald Trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln. God only knows what such a response means, in an age when our mass media considers it their democratic duty to dox and fire ordinary people for their opinions, and when most

The Democratic Party Isn’t

It’s high time American voters lodged a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (“BBB”) against an entity with a sketchy history of bogus claims and broken promises: the Democratic Party. According to the BBB: Misleading advertising occurs when, in the promotion of a product or any business interest, a representation is made to the public

Impeachment Is Trump’s Punishment for Questioning the Intelligence Community

According to John Brennan, the former CIA chief, I am about to commit a public act of treason. I’ll write quickly before he can summon his allies to kick in my door and arrest me. Here goes: We’re still not sure that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election. Brennan similarly accused the president of

Foggy Bottom Has the Sadz
(and That’s a Very Good Thing)

As House Democrats invited Ivy League shrews to publicly grind their Trump-hating axe during Wednesday’s disastrous impeachment charade, President Trump returned home after confronting our allies again about their lagging financial support of NATO. The stale pact turns 70 this year and like too many Boomers these days, NATO is out of fresh ideas and

Impeachment is Backfiring in the Midwest

House Democrats’ impeachment efforts are backfiring on them throughout the Midwest. Poll after poll is revealing how President Trump is gaining a stronger footing for re-election in key swing states. In Wisconsin, Trump is now more popular than he ever has been. Democrats have themselves to blame for increasing the odds of Trump’s second term
