Doc_Zero/John Hayward: The Takeaway from Impeachment Theater Is That The Unelected Permanent Government Has Lost Confidence In the Voters

Would it not be simpler to dissolve the people, and install another?

The big takeaway from Impeachment Theater is that American voters have influence over a much smaller portion of the federal government than they believed. Washington is a feudal bureaucratic empire with a small suggestion box.

Last week American voters were introduced to the idea that the elected President of the United States can be accused of "undermining" foreign policy determined by the permanent bureaucracy, which spends billions of our tax dollars but is not even slightly interested in our input.



We've been told top bureaucrats who supposedly serve at the pleasure of the president are actually entitled to their jobs and firing them is a crime, with the president presumed guilty unless he can prove he had an acceptable reason for terminating or reassigning them.

We've learned that Made Men of the bureaucratic empire and its political wing, the Democrat Party, cannot be investigated for corruption unless the most exquisite preliminary rituals are followed and the investigators can demonstrate the absolute purity of their intentions.

Outside of Impeachment Theater, we've been told it's heroic for the bureaucracy to organize "resistance" against the elected president and congressional representatives, if the Washington empire disapproves of the voters' choices.

We've discovered obscure lower-court judges can hijack entire segments of national policy on a whim. Some of these imperial proclamations have been expressly premised on the notion that American citizens have less to say about their own government than foreign nationals do.

We've learned a president the imperial bureaucracy likes can issue executive orders that cannot be reversed by presidents it disapproves of. The people are belatedly informed that some matters are settled forever on the "one man, one vote, one time" principle.

The essence of self-government, the true right that matters above all others, is the right to say "no." We've learned over the past three years that the American people no longer have that right in most cases, but their nominal employees in the federal government do.

If the imperial bureaucracy makes a demand of you, good luck with trying to work up a "resistance" movement. Good luck getting any favorable attention from the media that has fused with that bureaucracy and enjoys a revolving door of employment with it.

But if you, the Little People, cast votes the imperial bureaucracy doesn't like... well, watch out. They'll fight you every step of the way and spend untold millions of YOUR dollars against you. Then they'll get in front of cameras and expect you to applaud them as heroes.

It was always a swindle to convince the American people that democracy serves as a failsafe check against authoritarian power. We were fooled into thinking our government could never become dictatorial, no matter how much power it claims, because we can always vote the bums out.

Guess what, kids? "Voting the bums out" turns out to be nearly impossible in any significant sense, because they can use their vast resources of money, power, and media to create defensive phalanxes of rock-solid voters. They can give you billions of reasons not to vote them out.


And as we've seen since 2017, even if you DO manage to vote the bums out, or vote in an administration that disagrees with the imperial consensus, you learn that most of the power and money is controlled by people you never get to vote against.

You learn that the people you don't vote for are very capable of defending their privileges against the people who DO have to face the voters. And you learn that far more issues than you ever suspected are considered "settled" so you'll never get to vote on them again. /end

61 In the Era of the Golden Scalp Weasel came the Great Unmasking.

What the NROniks and the Bulwarkians and Reverend French (I do so love that VDH called him that), et al. seem to miss is that the point of the GOP was supposed to be to stop this.

Remember the CRA? You know, when Newt promised that there would be Congressional review of regulatory actions (never mind how insanely inverted that is) and see we COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY passed the CRA and what do you mean now use it?

Remember when we were assured, with all sneering and pomp, that the GOP had to take the House because that way the power of the purse could be used to stop Obama and what do you mean you expect us to use it, we can't have a government shut down! It's the worst thing ever!

One half of one third.

Don't have the Presidency

Don't have 60 in the Senate.

Don't have the Courts.

It's excuse after excuse after excuse but never ever not in the history of ever does the GOP ever turn the ratchet the other way.

Then comes Trump, who is a transactional President in the sense that he made a deal. If you vote for me, I will do X. People voted for him and he is doing his best to give X.

Of course that's going to infuriate people who are being confronted that all of their pretty words were lies.

This all will end in the usual fashion. I just hope when I go down in the first wave that it's really quick.

Mostly this, and also the UniParty lifetime Republicans share in this facade of citizens in control of their government.

The Democrat party is the anti-law party, to be sure. Those that are Democrats are ABOVE the law, and sneer to anyone who disagrees.

Including the Democrat judges, the crooked backstop to this crooked game.

And the Democrat Press, that commonly delivers a false view, with false facts, while ignoring the important, relevant information.

All the time covering up the crooked schemes of their fellow Democrat tools.

Democrats in power today are cancer to America. Cancer to individual freedom. It is killing it. Cancer does that.

Either Trump locks a lot of them up, or this country will absolutely fall into CW2. You can bet your stored ammo and silver coins on it.

And, with Trump, the answer to all these issues we knew were there, we see just how insidious, dangerous, and godawful "our" political and bureaucratic class is.

173 27 -- I woke up during W's two terms and realized that State had an entirely different agenda than the President. I know a lot of you are less than thrilled with W, but it should still concern you that State is so willing to go to war against any Republican President. State loves Democrat presidents, but refuses to tolerate a Republican. Mary Poppins, you mentioned seeing it begin during Eisenhower's presidency. Actually, I suspect what you saw was the emergence of seeds planted in both Wilson's and FDR 's presidencies.

The fun part is, nobody ever does.

Sometimes it's a protest in Berlin. Or the President of the Russian Federation rides a tank to the Duma. Or a cadre of young captains just decides enough is enough and does their thang in Ankara.

I like to point out Romania as an example. In December of 1989, nobody could have guessed anything would change in the foreseeable future. It wasn't like the Warsaw Pact - the regime had control.

Then Securitate serves an eviction notice on a Hungarian priest in a backwater like Timisoara for political reasons. And his congregation tries to block them, and some local students join in. And they open fire.

And eleven days later, Bucharest is in chaos and the Ceausescus are put against the wall of a rural schoolhouse and ventilated by a firing squad.

Nobody can say what it will be, but that which can't continue won't, and you can rest assured the day will come.

I don't know enough to argue this point. But knowing they could go unless motivated to get in line would certainly help with motivation. Gov unions and civil service status should go.

actually that may not be correct. Seems that a lot of Democrats get paid regularly with checks drawn on Ukraine banks.

For years during the Obama administration, cashing checks from Ukraine banks was all the rage in Democrat circles.

Ukraine is the most corrupt country in Europe and one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

And I thought to myself that if Trump were going after his political enemies, and had changed the qualifications under which official complaints can be made just to get his political foes, I'd think a lot less of Trump.

Another thing I thought is why would they call conservatives "conspiracy theorists"? It's suddenly a conspiracy to fear misuse of the power of government agencies that have the power to prosecute and imprison you and the right to secure things away from the public's knowledge?

I mean if you like conspiracy theories, why isn't that Trump is in control of the Democratic Party/acting as a distraction target of the Democratic Party or Schiff is actually working for Trump a more interesting "conspiracy theory"?

Ukraine is the most corrupt country in Europe and one of the most corrupt countries in the world. It's barely even a real country, more of a collection of crooks and special interests that foreign countries have sought to control and poured billions and billions of dollars into for years which magically seemed to mostly disappear.

It has been ground zero for money laundering and corruption for years and that is what this is all about.

No, we are not. Because the middle and upper management ranks of the Civil Service and Foreign service are mostly committed Democrats. They do the hiring for their Departments and Agencies, so can emplace fellow thinkers as they wish in any open jobs. And as a former Civil Servant, I can tell you that a manager always gets the person he wants. Job descriptions can be tailored as-needed, and the managers can count on HR finding loopholes in the hiring rules, if needed.

I mean really. Did he get the opportunities that other Presidents have had? Not even a honeymoon. The divorce was filed before the marriage vows were said and those were "F**k You" and "Orange Man Bad".

I'm not knocking it. I'm actually for it at this point because it's a choice of better or worse. In stage one, the strongman scenario cleans up anti-citizen corruption. I'll worry about stage two later. It may or may not happen, but stage one is a welcomed, tolerable one.

But I'm just stating an evolution of events that are driven by a country wracked by political corruption and a ruined democratic construct. The actions of those who are running things and should not be will invite, and insist upon, a correction. And in a democracy, it readily boils down to a populist who will grasp the imagination of a strongman.

498 453, there is a little problem with that. Right now we have more or less an unaccountable aristocracy. The first thing that a strongman does is more or less eliminates said aristocracy to get the support of the people. That is what the oligarchs are truly afraid of with Trump and why you see so much projection. They know what they've done and government more or less has the records of it via terrorism surveillance tools.

The oligarchs were freaking out that Elizabeth Warren meant taking "THEIR" wealth instead of just the peasants. That is when you saw Bloomberg and apparently the former Mass Gov. jump into the race. They really do not want Warren v. Trump as the matchup.

Right now, the oligarchs control the Dem party via clientelism: the alphabets, the unions, govt workers, contractors, single women, minorities, immigrants, etc. but it is an unstable coalition. It is based on money and hate, not love of country or any other positive virtue. When the money runs out, then the hate is no longer balanced (see Venezuela) and society implodes.

IF GA=Page, this is pretty strong to point to what I've suspected of late, that Page and Strzok were *not* having an affair.



Otherwise, it a closed conversation, why would you text that
somebody's spouse "thinks" they are having an affair? And then say
"correct"--without quotes, that is.

They set it up so he could say he didn't know who it was. But he knows its one of two people. He just doesn't know which one of the two. Same with shifty shiff. He's playing the same game. I know it one of these people, I just don't know which one . . .

The only "undetectable" poison I know of *was* succinylcholine, but some years back the cops devised some kind gas chromatography that can turn it up if it looks suspicious.

Nicotine poisoning will induce seizures, paralysis and death, but again, if it looks suspicious, they'll look for high concentrations.

Of course, when the vic has dirt on Clintons, it never looks suspicious to cops.

It makes less sense for Schiff to do so as having it refuted was so easy. But if he credulously bought into Vindy's tale and ran with it, well that crap has a long history going back to Kavanaugh hearings and Anita Hill.

First, reelect Trump.
Second, elect enough Freedom loving, Constitution respecting, Trump supporting Republicans to make the GOPe irrelevant.
Third, Expel Schiff from the House
Fourth, Make it known to the Democrats that if they don't rid themselves of their current leadership, "Schiff rules" will prevail for all committees: The minority will sit there with their yaps closed, AND LIKE IT
Fifth, repeal the civil service laws: If these deep state bastards are going to behave like partisan hacks, they deserve to be turned out of their jobs when their party loses.
Sixth, end direct election of Senators. Senators represent their states, not the people thereof. That's what the House is for.
Seventh. Term Limits. For everyone. Especially Supreme Court Justices.
Eighth, Age Limits. Nobody has the right to die in office.
Ninth, Go from a two year to a three year election cycle. That, way, we'd have at least one year in which to get shit done before everybody starts thinking about how best to position their asses to keep their phony baloney jobs after the upcoming election.

Failing That:

Article V/Constitutional convention. Sure, it will end in civil war, but as Clemenza said, "sometimes you got to get rid of the bad blood" (something like that).

Sixth, end direct election of Senators. Senators represent their states, not the people thereof. That's what the House is for. (Senators charged with bringing home the bacon will be replaced by Senators from profligate state governments with orders to bring home the bacon. Nope, this will not magically lead to better governance, as much as people want to believe.)
Seventh. Term Limits. For everyone. Especially Supreme Court Justices. (Because what is great for a republic is to make its already lazy voters much, much lazier. Term limits have been in effect for CA state government since 1990. I don't know of a sane person who thinks CA is well governed. That's just one example.
Americans think if they just come up with enough silver bullets, then they can have good government without any hard work. They do not understand that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance; we'll just pass a law and have the legal system do what we should be doing via societal values and morals, because teaching the values of temporary service in office for a few years before returning to whatever business you were in before IS JUST TOO HARD.)
Eighth, Age Limits. Nobody has the right to die in office.
Ninth, Go from a two year to a three year election cycle. That, way, we'd have at least one year in which to get shit done before everybody starts thinking about how best to position their asses to keep their phony baloney jobs after the upcoming election. (Because this doesn't happen elsewhere, such as in Australia, whose government lasts a max of three years before an election.)
