Impeach, impeach, impeach! Oh my!

Democrats have buried President Trump in numerous false accusations and threats of impeachment. Sometimes I wonder whether one of the reasons is because they had to expend so much energy denying or ignoring the corruption, obstruction of justice and abuses of power so blatantly engaged in by the previous president. Perhaps I’m giving them too much credit. Nevertheless, they have accused Donald Trump of those offenses and a lot more.

In the most recent debacle of media malpractice, CNN and MSNBC Repeatedly Floated Impeachment Over Buzzfeed Report over 200 times. Here is a montage of just a bit of the media frenzy for your popcorn-eating pleasure.

Leftists like Maxine Waters who are firmly in control of the Democrat party called for Trump’s impeachment before he was inaugurated. That’s a stunning factoid to which we never call enough attention.

Imagine if a Super Bowl team demanded to be declared the winner before the other side had had a chance to play the game. Or maybe, after they won, the losing team spent the off-season trying to delegitimize their win. No wonder the Left has tried to co-opt the NFL. They hate competition, especially when they lose.

Waters wasn’t smart enough to lie about giving him a fair chance until after Trump was actually in office.  She telegraphed what a host of other Democrats had apparently been planning.  That is, to reverse the 2016 election without grounds or evidence and to frame Donald Trump if necessary to obtain that evidence.

No wonder you never hear the anti-Trump media (which is most of it) go near a blockbuster story like the phony dossier. The FBI knew it was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. It was used to obtain an illegal FISA warrant to surveil Trump and his associates.  Remember when Trump tweeted that he was being “wiretapped?”  That was in March of 2017. He may not have gotten the word quite right but about being spied on by appointees in the Obama administration, he was right.

To watch the media tacitly ignore the biggest corruption story perhaps in our lifetimes, and scream, “Impeachment! Impeachment!” over yet another false report perfectly illustrates that they’ve been crying wolf from the very beginning. Except this time, they were caught very publicly. Even their minions are being forced to admit that they fouled up royally.

While the media was still wiping egg off its face, Jeffery Toobin said in a CNN interview, “This is a bad day for the news media…The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and they’re willing to lie to do it.”

Despite Toobin’s caveat that he doesn’t think that’s true, it should be patently obvious to almost any fair-minded observer that it is indeed true.

After this latest fiasco, I hope and pray that a majority of Americans agree.
