The topic is the origin story of the Russia Hoax… The Dems are all atwitter because they think they have another “smoking gun.” But it’s just more hearsay…

Jerry Bowyer: Ukraine, Russia and the Fluidity of Conspiracy Theories

For years, we’ve been told by elite media that Trump was a puppet of Vladimir Putin. Now, we’re being told that Trump has a corrupt relationship with the new president of Ukraine. There’s just one problem: Russia and Ukraine are enemies. In fact, since 2014, the two nations have been locked in a war that has cost over 12,000 lives.

So: how can media argue Trump is Putin’s puppet—while he offers military aid to Putin’s enemies? This contradiction has apparently never occurred to today’s media elites.

They are pushing for impeachment based on an alleged attempt by our president to conspire with the Ukrainian president for political gain. So: which is it?—conspiring with Russia or conspiring against Russia?

Before they move on to their next attempt to end Trump’s presidency over this conspiracy theory, media should at least have the decency to admit that their last conspiracy theory was dead wrong.

Jerry Bowyer: The Verdict Remains the Same

When the law is working the way it’s supposed to work, the prosecution decides what the charge is and then the jury decides the verdict. In the case of the Resistance vs. Trump, the verdict has always been known in advance: Guilty. It’s the charges which keep changing.

When the verdict never changes, but the charges keep changing, that’s a thumb on the scale of justice.

That’s what we’ve seen in recent weeks with Trumpeachment 2.0: Ukraine edition. New charge, collusion with Russia is out, collusion with Russia’s enemy is in. Only the verdict remains the same.

Remember: Impeachment is an extraordinary legal step, designed to investigate under-investigated matters. By what objective measure could anyone argue that Trump has been under-investigated?

Oh, I forgot, he will always be seen as under investigation, because no matter what the official charge is, the real offense is that he won the election.

Dan Proft: Impeachment or Bust

With her proclamation of an impeachment inquiry, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the American people that the 2020 election will be about Democrats’ past political failures and not their future quality of life.

House Democrats will not move to protect private health insurance for 175 million Americans; nor will they take up the U.S-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

House Democrats will not forge a compromise on border security that would provide permanent legal status to DREAMers or participate in a tax relief 2.0 discussion.

House Democrats will not work to improve the quality of public education, public housing or public infrastructure.

They’ll be too busy talking Ukraine and Russia and impeachment, holding hearings, issuing subpoenas and looking for sound bites to feed a willing media.

Pelosi and company have proven to be fanatical partisans in perpetual tantrum mode over losing the 2016 election. Ironically, by choosing to be so, they are guaranteeing a rerun of the election they lost.
