MERRY IMPEACHMENT?

What has the Holiday Season become to many of the people who lead us? Consider this Bible passage.

John 3:19-21New American Standard Bible (NASB)

19 This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

While the rest of us celebrate the Holidays and want to spend our time with family and friends, are our leaders busying themselves doing things they don’t want us to know about?

  1. Hey Tom,

    We’re trying a renewal of All Along the Watchtower, which is an ecumenical blog that has been left with a few remnant Catholics. I’ve followed your blog for a while and you do write on religious topics. If I send your user name to the administrator, I didn’t know if you’d be interested in writing religious posts? You can repurpose old posts too. I’m just trying to get at least one day a week, 500 words or less.

    Thanks.

      1. Tom,

        If you can supply your username, it looks like wordpress doesn’t let you see them anymore email me at phillip@communio.blog or just comment here.

        I will have the adminstrator send you the invite.

        Once everything is settled, I’ll send out a private blog post to create a writing schedule.

  2. Tom,

    Imagine you have been accused by a biased prosecutor of a crime that you did not commit. Because you suspect the indictment phase will be corrupt, you withhold the alibi witnesses who can completely clear you until a trial before a judge and jury with whom you think you can get a fair trial. This, under your own version of events is where we are at.

    All your excuses of bias and unfairness fall apart if Trump withholds the witnesses, his men, who can exculpate him if he is indeed innocent. The only reason for withholding these witnesses is because they will be forced to admit what we already know: that Trump is guilty of everything he was impeached for.

      So, Trump is guilty because he exercised executive privilege?

      This nonsense started because of a “whistle blower” that Schiff would not let testify, apparently because that whistle blower would incriminate him instead of Trump. Yet there you complaining about obstruction? 😆

      1. Non sequiturs. All of your objections, even if true, are OBE. Trump is Impeached, one of three presidents in American history. For all time it will be part of his record.

        If Republicans sweep it under the rug, Trump’s guilt will always be a question mark. If he is innocent, you, like 60 plus percent of Republicans, should want witnesses to forever clear Trump’s reputation and make the Dems look like fools. If Trump is guilty, on the other hand, not allowing Trump’s own people to testify becomes part of the cover up.

        If you believe Trump is truly not guilty, why are you afraid to have those who know the truth exonerate Trump? Can it be because you know Trump is guilty?

        When you can answer those questions, then you have an argument. Until then, it all looks like smoke to cover Trump’s naked guilt.

      2. “So, Trump is guilty because he exercised executive privilege?”

        BTW, when did Trump exercise “Executive Privilege”? Do you even know how that would be done if Trump ever does exercises that constitutionally questionable privilege? Instead, Trump supposedly has been exercising the ridiculous and constitutionally unheard of claim of “absolute immunity”. Why has Trump not asserted executive privilege? Because executive privilege is an item by item evidentiary claim that, like attorney/client privilege, can only be asserted for a specific legal due process purpose, not as a broad based excuse for witnesses and documents to not even show up. Also, it cannot be used by conspirators to hide their own criminal conspiracy.

        I bring this up because (1) this is, in part, what one article of impeachment is based upon, and (2) if they are allowed to testify, an actual executive privilege may be asserted by Trump officials that may be decided upon by the Chief Justice and/or a majority vote by Senators.

          Did history start today? Yesterday? A year ago?

          Democrats have been intent upon destroying Donald Trump ever since he unexpectedly won the election. Up to that time, Democrats were mad at Trump because he would not accept the proposition in advance that the election could not be fixed. After the election, Democrats set out to prove Trump had conspired with the Russians to steal the election.

          After several years of this nonsense, what have we learned?
          1. If we want to know what Democrats are doing that is illegal, we should check what they accusing Republicans of doing.
          2. The mainstream news media doesn’t do a good job double-checking its unnamed sources.
          3. There is different standard of justice for Democrats. In fact, lying to Congress and the FISC seems to be a good way to get a job with CNN and MSNBC.

            My spouse recently send an apology (of sorts) to an old college roommate.
            He’s a good friend of ours, but about a year and a half ago he started sending stuff that sounded like it came from a conspiracy web. About the FBI.
            The released IG report just affirmed all of the “crazy stuff” he’d been saying the whole time.

          3. So basically you’re saying that you agree that the charges are true so, of course, the witnesses would simply confirm what most Americans already know or suspect. You believe Trump is guilty as sin, but you are hoping your fellow Republican stalwarts can continue to be snowed by stoking tribal loyalties and hatreds. Therefore you’ve made political calculation – you’re afraid that, unlike you, other Republicans might balk at electing a crook once Trump’s facade of lies, rants and conspiracy theories falls a Russian athlete without his steroids.

            Have I got that about right? (I forgot – you can’t actually admit this out loud).

            I’ll tell you what: if I’ve got it right, just respond with a bunch of smoke and mirrors about diabolical Democrats rather than answering the question. It will be between just you and me and the spinal challenged Lindsey Graham who once called Trump out for exactly the moral nightmare who he is. Mums the word -I won’t tell a soul. 😉

            I said all that? Amazing! Who would have known except the most clever carnival show mindreader?

            I think most people are finally starting to realize what the term “gaslighting” means, and they tired of being manipulated by Democrats, RINOs, educrats, and their allies in the mass media.

            Does that mean I think there is a big conspiracy? After what happened to Trump, I think it is obvious we do have conspirators. These people view Trump as a threat to the sacred status quo.

            Think! Why did the South fight so determinedly for slavery, for their sacred status quo? Are you going to say it never happened because that would have been such a highly immoral thing to do? Well, you have no problem blaming Republicans because they refuse to help you lynch Trump. So why don’t you just think about the fact that for some reason the South, mostly race obsessed Democrats, fought to keep blacks in chains.

            I suppose Abe Lincoln, by comparison to Donald Trump, seems like the more decent man. Not for me to judge. All I know is that Democrats wanted no part of Lincoln’s presidency, and history has repeated itself. We are just seeing a different strategy for preserving the status quo. Why?

            When Lincoln became president, what was the prize? The slaves in the South. When Trump became president, what was the prize? The taxpayers, that is, control of the government itself.

            Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the smoke and mirrors just as much as I enjoyed the gaslighting.

      The neverTrumpers keep insisting Trump did something illegal, but they never produce any evidence. They just produce some variation of this statement: “the facts are unmistakable.” The truth is what it is not what we will it to be.

      So, you don’t like President Trump? That’s nice!

    2. A response to the Mark Galli piece:

      https://www.christianpost.com/voice/why-i-still-stand-by-45-president-trump.html?fbclid=IwAR0cDkedczZozGTicMRuz7IcQX4fTxZEyNzbvl5cviFm9LXnqDLqsLXczhM

      Mark Galli, in his own words, also once described some of us who voted for this president when he said: “These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently most of them don’t), they are blue collar jobs or entry level work.”

      So while the article penned as a parting shot to evangelicals who have supported Donald Trump by the outgoing editor-in-chief may represent the voice of Mark Galli, it does not represents the millions of hard working men and women of faith or the heart or character of believers who support this president. And in no way reflects the values and heart of Christianity today in these United States of America.
