In the midst of the berserkers in the U.S. Congress announcing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday—an impeachment process in which the pathetic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says “All roads lead to Putin”—President Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the White House, a meeting which Trump described as “very good.” Lavrov, speaking to the press afterwards, said: “As far as relations with Russia are concerned, we have no reason to doubt that President Donald Trump sincerely realizes the benefits of good Russian-U.S. relations for Americans, for American businesses, for the U.S. in general and for the global situation.”
Who is running the United States? Are the lunatics running the asylum? The constitutional law professor Alan Dershowitz—a Democrat—told Fox News Dec. 8 that “abuse of power” does not even come close to the constitutional criteria for impeachment (high crimes or misdemeanors, bribery or treason). Every President in our history has been accused by the opposition of “abuse of power,” he said. He warned that the “weaponization” of impeachment by a partisan majority—something the drafters of the Constitution (Hamilton and Madison in particular) explicitly warned against—is driving the U.S. back to a British system of government, in which the “prime minister serves at the will of the Parliament.” A simple vote of no confidence and the leader is deposed. “That’s exactly what we didn’t want to empower the Congress to do in the United States,” Dershowitz declared.
The issue is: war and depression, or peace and development. Nancy Pelosi admitted that she knew, as then-ranking member of the Intelligence Committee, with access to the intelligence reports, that George Bush knew there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq when he launched that genocidal war—a war correctly identified by Trump as the “worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country”—and yet she insisted that as House Speaker, she would not allow an impeachment of Bush. Now President Trump is working with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to prevent a war with Russia, and Pelosi turns that into an impeachable act. In the case of China, the hysteria is even worse, with the Congress passing bills to punish China for “human rights” violations in Hong Kong and Xinjiang. As one speaker at a Beijing forum on human rights said today: Since the U.S. has invaded Iraq, Libya, Syria and other Islamic countries, causing millions of deaths, leaving them in the hands of warring terrorist gangs, can anyone really believe they are concerned about the human rights of Muslims in Xinjiang?
Add to that the financial explosion ripping through the trans-Atlantic banking system, with the Fed pumping billions of dollars into the system every night, and insiders warning that full-scale QE money printing is coming soon (which will not be enough, this time, to hold off a collapse, as it did after 2008). The Wall Street “owners” of most of our Members of Congress, and all of the corporate press, are desperate to prevent Trump’s possible response to the coming crash—i.e., returning to his campaign pledge to restore Roosevelt’s Glass-Steagall Act, putting the bankrupt speculators out of their misery, and returning to a Hamiltonian credit system.
