On Impeachment: Mark Levin Makes His Points

Tuesday, 21 January 2020

Mark Levin, constitutional lawyer and radio host, presents his own concise argument against impeachment. It’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on the Constitution of the United States of America.

Even if you don’t like our President and/or can’t tolerate Levin’s delivery, please listen to his words.

Seven too many clowns at this party.

On 26 July 2017 the US Senate voted to keep ObamaCare in effect forever.

On Wednesday, 26 July 2017, all 48 Democrats plus 7 Republicans in the Senate voted to destroy the most efficient and successful private healthcare system in the world.

Nice move, idiots.

Every totalitarian government in modern history that nationalized medical care for their constituents did it for reasons having nothing to do with medical care or economics, and everything to do with purging the population that remembers oppression and the obvious causes.

ObamaCare is no different.

Welcome to fascism, folks. They’re gonna shove it down our throats despite majority public opinion to the contrary.

Joshua Norton’s Contribution to the World

Emperor Norton I_Wikipedia

Joshua Abraham Norton of San Francisco (via England) recobanized that the State of the Union was in disrepair in 1859, and realized that he alone could save the United States of America from certain catastrophe. Subsequently, and for legitimate reasons, he unselfishly declared himself Emperor Norton the First.

From Wikipedia:

In accordance with his self-appointed role of emperor, Norton issued numerous decrees on matters of the state. After assuming absolute control over the country, he saw no further need for a legislature, and on October 12, 1859, he issued a decree that formally “dissolved” the United States Congress. In the decree, Norton observed:

“…fraud and corruption prevent a fair and proper expression of the public voice; that open violation of the laws are constantly occurring, caused by mobs, parties, factions and undue influence of political sects; that the citizen has not that protection of person and property which he is entitled.”

He was humored and tolerated at the time; meanwhile I’ve put in an order for more Joshua Nortons.

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” –John Lennon

Harry Truman’s classic observation rings true as well.
