The purpose of the Articles of Impeachment against President Donald John Trump is to give the Senate the power to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.
This is no small matter. Our Founding Fathers fought and died to replace government by a Ruling Class with government by We The People. They created Impeachment of our President as an exception to government by We The People — if you will, as an escape valve to be used in the case of an emergency.
What qualifies as an emergency? Our Constitution says an emergency is “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. What does that mean? Who gets to decide what that means? Do We The People get to decide, or do the Ruling Class get to decide?
Our Constitution says the House of Representatives gets to decide whether or not to allege an emergency. Our Constitution says the Senate gets to decide whether or not the allegation is valid. We The People have no voice.
More than 135 million of We The People voted for more than 30 Presidential candidates in the 2016 Presidential election. Almost 63 million of We The People voted to elect President Donald John Trump. The Impeachment and Impeachment Trial against President Donald John Trump are consequential.
We The People want to know everything about the Impeachment and Impeachment Trial, because they undo our voice in the 2016 Presidential Election. However, our ability to know anything is limited. We know only what the Ruling Class tell us, whether or not true. We don’t know what the Ruling Class withhold from us, whether or not significant.
We The People never know any truth that the Ruling Class don’t want us to know. What do We The People know about Jack Ruby’s assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald? What do We The People know about the Ohio National Guard’s assassination of Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William Knox Schroeder?
After having been force fed noise about the Impeachment and Impeachment Trial all day every day since the 2016 Presidential Election, what valuable information has the Ruling Class provided to We The People about the factual and legal basis for the Impeachment and Impeachment Trial?
Since Election Day 2016, the Ruling Class have devoted all day every day to headlines about President Donald John Trump’s all day every day treasonous impeachable conduct, and, also, have devoted all day every day to headlines about his all day every day perfect unimpeachable conduct. Really?
Is the Ruling Class filling our televisions and newspapers with information or disinformation all day every day?
Is the Ruling Class seeking truth and justice or power and wealth?
How much money would the Ruling Class have had to pay for all the airtime they’ve received since the 2016 Presidential Election, if the Impeachment and Impeachment Trial had not given them the airtime for free?
How much less money would the Ruling Class have received from campaign contributors and media advertisers since the 2016 Presidential Election, if the Impeachment and Impeachment Trial had not opened the floodgates?
In the 2016 Presidential Election, We The People raised our voices in protest against the Ruling Class — against Republican and Democrat “leadership” and against Fourth Estate “news”. In the 2020 Presidential Election, what will We The People say?
