The Democrats’ assault on the Constitution makes all other news unimportant

The cascade of news the past few days has been an exhausting tumult that has worn down even this veteran journalist.

Indeed, there has been so much news of consequence that much of it has been pushed to the side — the monumental vote on Britain that will decide the future of Brexit, the naming of Greta Thunberg as Time’s Person of the Year, the president’s executive order defending Judaism, the Supreme Court decision allowing Kentucky to require sonograms before permitting an abortion, Devin Nunes’ lawsuit against CNN and genetic experimentation in China, to name a few.

Instead of being able to write about any of those stories, I have been held hostage by the idiotic impeachment hoax, watching as Democrats abuse their power by hijacking the Constitution and trying to tarnish a president they hate.

Right now, as I write this, the House Judiciary Committee is finishing their markup of the two absurd articles of impeachment. In some ways this is a good thing. The Republicans have never been better. The Republican members of the Judiciary Committee, and the Intelligence Committee before that, have been uniformly admirable. Because of the swirl of news I have not been able to single out any one member for special praise, but that has not been necessary. They will all be remembered by history for their defense of the Constitution and the rule of law.

Alas, they will not prevail. The president will be impeached, but more importantly the Constitution will be left in tatters. God help our country. As Rep. Louie Gohmert just said, “This is a day that will live in infamy.”

  1. “…assault on the Constitution makes all other news unimportant.”? Yep. Not only the assault on the US Constitution, but also like the one on the MT Constitution. The assault, that if successful, will eventually affect ALL of US, water & property rights! I’m talking about MT Sen Daines’ bill to “Protect Access to Water For All Montanans and OTHER THINGS”. After the PATRIOT Act, we’re not falling for that misnomer along with that kitchen-sink “OTHER THINGS” free for all!!! Frank, maybe you can explain what the “off reservation water rights” are? And which “water rights” the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) are so happy to relinquish?

      1. Thank you. The more the truth & facts get out the people who support Daines’ bill will wake up. With any luck, mabe he’ll be the first. I’m sure you know Rick Jore. He’d be one of the experts regarding the compact and it’s history.

        1. Either that or Daines may be a savior. I’ve still got to drill down in his proposal to see how it works. My preliminary investigation leaves me somewhat intrigued, but I have to pin down just what he got and what he gave up.
