This isn’t about impeaching Trump, it’s about silencing us

Impeaching Trump

The Left is hoping to impeach the President of the United States. But impeaching Trump is just a means to an end, not the end itself.

The goal here is to silence us.

In fact, it is just one more in a long line of attempts to keep us uppity Americans from having a say in our self-government.

I absolutely believe that impeaching Trump is about us – our punishment for not bowing to our social betters.

The only crime President Trump has committed is putting the American people first.

And for the establishment – the Swamp if you will — that simply cannot stand.

So they seek to destroy him as a way to silence and punish us.

Impeaching Trump is the tool, not the goal.

Their hope is to so dispirit us that we throw up our hands and give up.

They want us at the point where we stalk off defeated thinking, “Why should we even try anymore?”

This isn’t new.

They’ve been doing this ever since Donald Trump announced his candidacy.

In fact, they’ve been doing this for years before Donald Trump even decided to run.

This is, as Angelo Codevilla famously put it in 2010, the Ruling Class versus the Country Class.

And billionaire Donald Trump became the unlikely champion of the Country Class – the regular folks whom Washington has scoffed at and ignored for decades.

Or as Ann Coulter put it in the summary of her book In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!:

Donald Trump isn’t a politician — he’s a one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment. We’re about to see the deluxe version of the left’s favorite theme: Vote for us or we’ll call you stupid. It’s the working class against the smirking class.

Nobody in his right mind would think this “smirking class” would just lie down and let the American people take away its power.

They will fight with everything they have to keep their grip on our self-government.

Even if that means fighting dirty.

Last year, President Trump held a rally in West Virginia. And, among other hateful things said about it, was this tweet:

In a column titled There’s a reason for the sneering condescension of the Smirking Class, I wrote:

Do you know why the Left and the Media despise Donald J. Trump?

It isn’t because they think he’s a fascist. And it has nothing to do with Russia.

No. They despise Donald Trump because he reinvigorated a segment of the country who had given up on voting.

More importantly, he reinvigorated a segment of the country the Smirking Class didn’t want voting.

In late 2011 Rush Limbaugh pointed out a story in the New York Times by Thomas Edsall in which Edsall wrote that the Obama campaign made the conscious decision to write off white working class voters.

For Obama, this strategy worked because the Republicans nominated a squishy, cosmopolitan RINO to run against him.

So white working class voters did as they were expected. They stayed home.

In June 2015, the New York Times reported that Hillary would use the same strategy Obama did.

Screw the white working class. She was going after the Obama coalition of minorities and women.

And had things gone according to plan, she would have won.

If the GOP had nominated Jeb Bush as the Smirking Class had planned, the white working class would have stayed home again.

But that didn’t happen.

Instead, Donald Trump won the nomination.

And the tens of millions of working class voters who had given up came roaring back again.

Instead of being demoralized, they were energized.

And let’s be honest. The Democrats can’t win when working class voters are energized.

And that’s why the Smirking Class hates Donald Trump.

Nothing has changed.

They still want to shut us up.

But in 2016, they failed at keeping us from electing President Trump.

They failed at every subsequent smear campaign.

And their attempted backroom coup – or insurance policy — is falling apart.

So what’s left?

Well, impeaching Trump.

So they’re going to make 2018 all about impeaching Trump.

And in the intervening weeks, they hope to dispirit us, discourage us and silence us.

But I’m going to say the same exact thing now that I said before the 2016 election: Vote:

The only poll that matters is the election itself. This is the only one that will include not “possible voters,” not “likely voters,” but people who actually went out and cast their votes.

And in that poll, there are more of us.

The Enslaved Press may want to deny it, my friends, but there are more of us. And the best way to prove that to them is to vote.


No matter what.

At the end of all of this, the truth is, you and I have more power over the outcome of this election than any poll or any “It’s Over” news report from the Enslaved Press.

We are the last surprise.

Vote — not just to stop them from impeaching Trump.


Vote to stop them from silencing, subjugating and disenfranchising us.

The Smirking Class needs a win in November to keep us from reclaiming our own self-government.

We’re the ones who are standing in their way.

And come November, we have to be the ones to stop them.

    I always said they would punish us for daring to think we knew what we were doing

    My thoughts in the entire Probe was that the American people were sold on the belief that Trump colluded with Russia instead we’re getting tax evasion that happened about a decade ago. who cares at this point? it’s not going to persuade anybody to not vote for Trump anymore in fact it’s going to get him more votes because people are just sick and tired of listening to this nonsense every every time the left screams this is the end for Trump, he manages to rise and approval and defeat his enemies.

    I can’t wait for the Red Wave this November and even more MAGA in 2020!

    So, there has been an active coup from the left-media-smirking class underway since election night. How will it turn out, and what will be the result?

    I am reminded of the Apple Super Bowl TV commercial in 1984. The grey shuffling people all marching in unison to hear their dear leader pontificate. The mind numbed robots. Enter the colorful woman who flung a hammer at the screen and broke the spell. For a while.

    Trump is our last chance to try to keep our nation a free society. We have seen this progressive march towards European socialism for the last 50 years. The left have their drones who all regurgitate the same illogical rhetoric. Trump recognized this and decided to try to save the nation that helped make him great. He did not have to do this. He did it out of love of his fellow citizen and the nation we share.

    If the left were to have their way, we Deplorables would be marched into re-education camps to be made ‘woke’ and programmed like the rest of their obedient zombies. If we did not accept the indoctrination, we would be sent to faraway places to live out our lives in obscurity never to spread our values of beliefs again. We were to be subdued by Hillary and forced to accept the programming just like the drones in the 1984 Apple commercial.

    The left does not do well with surprises so it is no surprise that Manafort was found guilty and Cohen is pleading guilty. These were expected outcomes. Mueller is one of their better ‘drones’ who performs his assigned task very well. The deep state all march in unison and listen to ‘dear leader’.

    The coup has already taken place. The enemy has established a foothold and are attempting to increase their control. Deplorables derailed their plans, but for how long??

    The drones keep marching and the re-education keeps going on. We are the target to be destroyed or negated. Which ever is more expedient.
