The Right Reverend Adam Schiff and his assorted Elders came to the well of the Senate to save the soul of America. That salvation it seems was in the hands of the pagan Senators who needed Righteousness to be adopted into their hearts. And so Rev. Schiff and the Elders, sent out by Her Holiness Nancy Pelosi, came to convert the Senators. They railed against the iniquity that was keeping Sinner Trump in the Holiest Shrine. They denounced the apostasy that was the questioning of the Holy Resistance and the gossip surrounding those earlier Holy Men who were exacting tithes and offerings from extending beneficences. They enlisted the aid of the Righteous Senator from New York to promote the message and advance the mission whenever possible. They reminded their fellow believers amongst the Senate as to what their religious obligations were.

For 11 days, the Rev. Schiff did direct battle with the unangelic hordes and girded his loins against the sinful depredations of the unholy. He spoke of the Testimony that brought him forth to the Senate and imprecated the Senate to seek their own Testimony if they were as yet unpersuaded. For only through the constant pressure of the realization of evil can the Nation be cleansed. So many have been lured into folly and are enjoying what they falsely believe is “the American Dream” — a world of industry and compensation, of family and community and well-being. They know not what danger their souls are in, denying the One True God of Progressivism. Only by giving Power to the Righteous Progressive Leadership can the people abjure their sinning and carefully, prayerfully, and solemnly come into righteousness and take their assigned position in society. “Embrace your grievances!” “Heal the Earth!” “Make way the Triumph of globalism!” cries the Elect. “Deny individuality!” “Turn away from self-reliance!” “Confess your sin of claiming ‘natural rights’!”

And so it came to pass that iniquity was not defeated. And in a few days, the Reverend and his Elders will be banished from the Senate. But the crusade for souls goes on. There is evil everywhere to be denounced until that blessed day when only the Global Master rules and all mankind acknowledges that individual agency is the most corrupt heresy.

    We are not worthy of these noble souls. They should leave the country and see if we could muddle through without them.

    If Congress doesn’t like what Trump did, they can pass a law against it. Of course, they will be unable to define such a law, which is a big hint that this impeachment was wrong.

    They would need a veto-proof majority.

    Each of these proud knight paragons stands firmly by their hypocritic oath, firm in the faith that their lapdogs in Big Media and Big Tech will shield them from all consequences. Fechez la vache.

    I completely agree that hating Trump (or any Republican) is directly akin to religious fervor.

    consider the following scenario:

    Sanders gets the democratic nomination. In early October, Putin and Russia announce they have a treasure trove of damming communications between Sanders and Russian agents posing as communist reactionaries in Russia.

    Will anyone believe it, other than Trump? Or will it be assumed that Trump has asked for a favor from Putin, in exchange for looking the other way in the Ukraine.

    But you have hit upon the problem. Trump can now do almost anything he wants. If no one can write a law, he is free to do anything he wants to.

    My emphasis. I suspect it is unlikely that I can dissuade you from this conclusion. But Trump voters (and politicians) are not Trump bots. We are voting what we consider our interests to be in the current circumstance. Not amongst those interests is raising up an Emperor God. That you believe that we think otherwise I find confounding.

    I put aside Trump’s rallies. That I am assuming is a small percentage of his support. Small but vocal. Though his behavior at the rallies would be akin to that of an Emperor Demi-God.

    I look at the support of literally everything Trump does. In the current impeachment, as Sen. Alexander stated, there was no need for witnesses as he knew what Trump did. He did what he was accused of. A lot of politicians laid part of their credibility on the line for Trump’s defense, and now have egg on their faces.

    Tomorrow, Trump will be “exonerated”. And will act accordingly. there is zero chance he will tone down his behavior.

    But just consider this. As a Trump supporter, Trumps cares zero for you. And when the polls show his support falling, he declares the polls as “fake news”. And if he loses the election by 20% he will blame someone else.

    Supporters say they like how he fights. But he does so with behavior no one would ever tolerate, such as the name calling. They seem to forget that his job is to be president of the United States, not just his supporters. And as president he must, absolutely must, respect those who do not support him.

    @billnelson, thank you for your response. You’ve made you positions crystal clear, but I have to ask you: When you review of behavior of his critics and #resistance, when you see the pre-dawn tactical raids on individuals “associated” with Trump for charges that Democrats get to arrange a peaceful surrender to authorities, when you see the deceptions practiced by the persons behind the “counterintelligence” probe of Trump, when you see the coordination and alteration of whistleblower policies to permit the equivalent of “water cooler gossip” to serve as a basis to (a) make a charge against the President, and (b) to throw a cloak around the accusers, when you have the one-sided evidence gathering process and denial of due process, how do you credit the accusations against the President? You must truly believe that Donald John Trump is the greatest demonic force ever unleashed on the United States. You are clearly not alone, but I implore you to take a step back and really examine the totality of what is happening, and why some of us think that Trump’s opposition does not have the better case.

    @rodin

    I separate the actions of the FBI and others, and the Obama administration from my position on Trump. None of the actions or events excuse Trump from his own actions.

    I could not vote for Trump because of his personal moral failings (if a man is willing to cheat on his wife, what will he do to me?), his simply terrible behavior, and mostly is demonstrated lack of knowledge about the world and how nations function. And my own research on how i believe he would be as a president.

    On the morning after the election, I awoke thrilled that Ms. Clinton was not elected. And then we had President Trump. His first big issue as president: a fight over the reported size of the crowd at his inauguration.

    So Pres. Trump has been the top provider of evidence against him. So if the whistle blower did not file a complaint, the phone call is coming out in the press. As did his call with Erdogan where he handed over the Kurds. But mostly Trump can’t stop talking. And he simply never believes he does wrong.

    You must truly believe that Donald John Trump is the greatest demonic force ever unleashed on the United States.

    This does not matter. I am concerned about the leader of the US today. How does he treat people? How does he treat allies? How does he treat political opponents? What is his political philosophy?
