House Votes To Send Impeachment to Senate

January 16, 2020

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 228-193 to send its impeachment articles to the Senate. In a tweet yesterday and in her speech before the House today, Speaker Pelosi announced the two themes: Trump is a pawn of the Russians who stole the 2016 election for him, and “dismissal” is coverup. On Tuesday, Pelosi tweeted, “American elections should be decided by the American people, not by the Russian Government. Retweet if you agree!”

In her House speech, Pelosi defended her delay in sending the impeachment articles to the Senate by making claims that internal emails expressing “concerns” about Trump’s holdup on lethal aid to Ukraine to “fight the Russians” were new dynamic “evidence,” that John Bolton had come forward to offer testimony in the interim, and that Lev Parnas had significant information implicating the President directly in Rudy Giuliani’s investigation of the Bidens. Most importantly, however, she railed on about the new fake claims about the Russian GRU hacking Burisma, the Ukrainian firm where Hunter Biden’s name netted millions for the Biden family.

This writer has spent some time over the last 24 hours surveying the Democratic Party literature about how to defeat Donald Trump. The consensus view is a three-pronged attack: (1) prolonged impeachment proceedings with 24-hour media spin, (2) an intractable foreign war, (3) a billion-dollar negative ad campaign. All three prongs of this strategy are now in motion, but can be defeated if their interrelationship is recognized and attacked.

With respect to impeachment, the upshot is not in doubt, but “never Trump” Senators will provide room for plenty of mischief and prolonged proceedings. Those Senators are Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Lamar Alexander, and Ben Sasse. While former never-Trumpers Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell have recently pledged allegiance, they are hardly trustworthy. Lev Parnas, Rudy Giuliani’s former translator, and source of the new grand evidence cited by Pelosi and Adam Schiff, is a joke. He has dangled his “information” about Trump and Giuliani endlessly before his prosecutors in the Southern District of New York in order to make a deal, but to no avail. They obviously view him as untrustworthy, which is quite something, given these prosecutors’ prior perfidious behavior with such as Michael Cohen.

It is obvious that driving a wedge between Trump and Putin furthers the second prong, an intractable war, brought about by actions which will be attributed to the President but which are, in reality, the continued machinations of the irregular and hybrid warfare introduced most prominently with the Iraq War of George W. Bush and the Arab Spring of Barack Obama, all at the behest of a British imperial apparatus which has no compunction about killing millions to reach its strategic goals. If you ask yourself the question, what has changed in terms of the American end of the British establishment, both Democratic and what Trump supporters call RINO Republicans since Trump took office, the only thing you can say is that they remain in a permanent war to remove him. The answer here is an educated mass movement, including the President’s base, demanding that the American military leave Southwest Asia and that the United States cooperate with Russia, Israel, China, and other players in the region to bring an end to killing and foster immediate economic development. An immediate summit of Presidents Trump, Putin, and Xi is key to bringing about that change.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire shill for Mark Carney and the international central bankers out to destroy this President and impose a new feudal green order upon the world, is providing the billion-dollar negative ad campaign. Carney has replaced Bloomberg now as the UN Climate envoy, in a scripted transition following years of “collaboration” between the two on their grand project of denying millions of people access to energy and the means of life. Carney recently announced the latest iteration of the “green project” by demanding that central bankers and technocrats take over governing the world before the next inevitable financial collapse. Bloomberg’s funding has not only paid for an unprecedented $180 million in negative ads targeted at battleground states. He has also put campaign offices and campaign workers on the ground in the same battleground states, bent on profiling the weaknesses of the President with his core voters and exploiting them. Bloomberg has been a shill for Wall Street and the City of London throughout his entire political career and is simply performing to type. This is the very fertile field for reintroducing Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws for Economic Recovery into the electoral battlefield.
