Christmas is no time to be given the old heave-ho. This is a time of celebration, redemption, and excess libation. A time to shop ‘til you drop; the economy depends on it.
Don’t get us wrong. There really is no best time to receive the dreaded pink slip. But Christmas is the absolute worst. Has this ever happened to you?
Well, believe it or not, this is precisely what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat degenerates in the House did this week with their partisan impeachment of President Trump. Not even Ebenezer Scrooge had a cold enough heart to fire Bob Cratchit on Christmas. In fact, Scrooge gave Cratchit Christmas day off – with pay.
For the record, Trump is a repulsive fellow. He chows Big Macs in bed and bloviates sulfurous gas back at the boob tube. After that, he feeds his resentments over a phone call with Sean Hannity. Then he uncorks on twitter. The sequence repeats every night and rolls into the morning like clockwork.
Perhaps this sort of behavior is beneath the stature of an esteemable President. But so what? It’s remarkably entertaining.
All the while, the Democrats – and Anderson Cooper – say The Donald is below the salt. The real question, though, is: Does he deserve to be impeached?
To this, no one – including Adam Schiff – actually knows.
House Democrats may have voted yes on their two articles of impeachment. But they failed to prove Trump guilty of these high crimes and misdemeanors. They bypassed American traditions of due process and a fair trial. In other words, Nancy Pelosi reduced the legislative branch of government to a kangaroo court.
Make no mistake, Trump will come out of this fake impeachment in better shape than he started. He’ll be acquitted by the Senate. However, this assumes Pelosi transmits the articles of impeachment to the Senate; if she doesn’t, Trump isn’t technically impeached.
Regardless, House Democrats have gifted thousands of rounds of live ammo to Trump that he can fire back at his presidential challengers. What’s more, the most enduring political target of all time may be about to step into the clearing.
God may have created all creatures great and small. And who are we to second guess the lord’s handiwork? But there are certain creatures that improve the world with their absence.
Hillary Clinton, the political classes incarnation of ringworm jock itch, is now scratching at another uncomfortable flare up. Year after year, decade after decade, she refuses to go away. Still, we’ve learned to make the best of it.
For instance, rather than getting agitated when seeing Clinton’s smug mug on the nightly news we marvel at what a fright her face has become. We can’t quite tell what in the world has happened. But whatever it is…the ugliness is cockadoodle awful.
According to a recent Harvard-Harris presidential poll, Clinton is the top choice for registered Democrats for the party’s 2020 presidential candidate. She hasn’t thrown her hat in the ring just yet. However, when push comes to shove, Clinton will be compelled to run by Russian bots. You can count on it!
Real High Crimes and Misdemeanors
Of course, the fake impeachment and the upcoming presidential election are a great big distraction. The real high crimes and misdemeanors, the one all three branches of government and both parties are ignoring, is that Americans are compelled under legal tender laws to use unconstitutional money.
If you recall, Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution empowers Congress – not the Federal Reserve – to coin money and regulate its value. In addition, Article I, Section 10, specifies that money be coined of gold and silver and cannot be bills of credit – such as debt based legal tender notes.
By this, the dollar, in its present form, is illegal money on two counts. First, the dollar’s issued by the Federal Reserve. Second, the dollar is a bill of credit with no ties to gold or silver.
What gives? Isn’t the U.S. Constitution the supreme law of the land? Alas, this is only true so long as it’s politically expedient.
The fact is, government officials have failed to uphold their obligations. They’re operating in dereliction of duty. And until the high crime of illegal money is abolished, everything else is a great big farce.
Look, we don’t like it one bit. There are many creative ways for a nation to self-destruct. The corruption of money underlies them all.

Merry Christmas to our brilliant Admin and all
readers and posters.
Have a healthy and prosperous new year!
Both humorous and informative; thanks!
I’m not sure if I’m hoping Hideous Hillary will waddle into the race. She is a bizarre mix of entertaining (in a queasy sort of way) and repulsive beyond belief.
As we have done since Dick Nixon severed ties to gold in 1971 we shall move into the new year still kicking the can down the road. We allow our government to continue to steal from our children’s future. It’s madness. We discourage saving money by not paying interest on savings accounts that amounts to squat. We allow Banks to rob people who are trapped in debt servitude. We do not teach in our public schools financial education. Our economy is based on a debt lie, credit lie, monetary lie wrapped in political lies. My guess is based on asking this question myself is 95% of adults asked what is the Federal Reserve and how they create money have no clue. My hope for my family and yours in the New Year is having a seat when the music stops.
