Impeachment: Arrogance and stupidity run amuck

Sedona AZ – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:

U.S. Capitol

As far as the U.S. Senate is concerned, the impeachment protocol – as in code of behavior – is very simple. The U.S. House of Representatives [like a District Attorney] investigates and prefers charges against the individual they have chosen to impeach; then, the Senate [like a jury] determines the guilt or innocence of the one who is charged. A simple straightforward procedure which requests and attempts to require the honest and comprehensive investigation of the crime.

The jury has no authority to investigate beyond the information presented by the prosecutor and, if the prosecutor was or is lax in gathering sufficient evidence in order to persuade the jury, the jury may question the judge and/or a previously heard witness for clarification. However, it is not proper for them to question someone not named in the indictment.

President Donald Trump

The impeachment needs to succeed or fail on the merit of the presented testimony and should not be predicated on added witnesses. The prosecution – in the U.S. House of Representatives vs President Donald J. Trump – failed to even identify an impeachable offense or crime and sought to have the jury find a CRIME!

Arrogance and stupidity run amuck.

Change of Subject: We are in a perilous time and the old adage about learning from history or repeating the historical mistakes looms large before us. One hundred years ago the Roaring 20’s was strong and prosperous, the devastating Great Depression followed shortly after because of the false contentment of complacency. If we do not work to hold and expand on the prevailing economic successes, we can easily slip into the horrible mess that Big Government Giveaways can and will cause if they are allowed or welcomed to be implemented.

Think about it!

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi behavior was appalling and disgusting for even a 5 year old child. Contempt of Congress and the American people is all Democrats and has been all Democrats. They failed to stand for record unemployment for minorities. I filled out a form to change my party affiliation to nonpartisan. Thank you President Trump for honoring ICE. It’s an honor to serve our country by keeping criminals out of it. Welcome to all non criminals and those needing safe harbor but opportunists and merely unemployed aren’t welcome illegally.

    Today’s Tom Gallatin article, last paragraph —-

    It looks like the Democrats’ impeachment gambit is blowing up in their faces. Thus far, impeachment has only succeeded in damaging Biden and bolstering President Donald Trump. The latest Gallup poll has him at 49% — his highest approval rating since he took office. And it’s not just Trump who’s up; the Republican Party as a whole has seen its favorability rating rise to 51% from 43% in September. Meanwhile, just 45% of Americans have a favorable view of Democrats, which is down from 48% in September. With numbers like this it’s little wonder that (James) Carville is “scared to death.”

    Some people have posted how trump has turned around the economy so I just did a little research.
    How Trump’s three years of job gains compares toObama’s
    During Trump’s first 36 months in office, the US economy has gained 6.6 million jobs. But during a comparable 36-month period at the end of Obama’s tenure, employers added 8.1 million jobs, or 23% more than what has been added since Trump took office.How Trump’s three years of job gains compares to Obama’s
    Stock Market Results (first three years after inauguration)
    S&P 500
    Obama: +58%
    Trump: +45%
    Dow Jones Industrial Average
    Obama: +57%
    Trump: +48%
    Nasdaq
    Obama: +90%
    Trump: +69%

    Hey Sedona, Segner falsified info & you know it when you research it. Percentages don’t tell squat, our economy & jobs were in the toilet during Obama admin but real numbers show my IRA best it’s ever been. You can afford to move back to CALIFORNIA now & pay your taxes Segner w/Trump making you money.

    The lack of journalistic standards in the leftwing press and the rightwing press are equal. This AG Barr vilification “made up” storyline is ridiculous and smacks once again of the Clintonites Democrats terror aided by the failed DNC Perez backed by Obama fear.

    The press knows Joe Biden is a crumbling shell of a man with a former (?) coke snortin million dollar paycheck Burisma son, and Joe needs to go home before he loses his reputation forever because even Obama hasn’t backed him. These unresearched articles about the AG Barr decision are meant to keep Joe Biden and the Democrat campaign nimrods stupidity out of the headlines. Don’t fall for it.

    America is a democracy. You democrats are running a Russian loving communist who not only honeymooned in his beloved USSR and lauded its policies, but he supports the Venezuelan dictator, and supports the Cuban dictators, and so on and so forth. Bernie loves China. Bernie loves Russia. Bernie loves autocrats and plutocrats and dictators and oligarchs. Where are those REAL headlines? Let’s investigate Bernie! He’s never done anything while in the Senate except warm the seat and rake in millions and he has been in bed with anti Americans FOREVER. Democrats were in absolute terror that Bernie would be the target for communist involved investigations and he would go in public opinion meltdown with no other viable candidate left standing.

    Democrats, you need to up your game. Your team sucks on the quality scale. Might be nice if you had a Democrat actually working and made money 9-5 rather than ride government coattails but that’s your sad history. You’ll vote for coattail riding Gabby Giffords husband because you “like” Gabby. Go back to Facebook and like someone. Sad commentary because the strongest and best example of an independent Arizonan woman cut from the same cloth as a former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is McSally, cut from a different tough western cloth. Arizonans used to vote quality but like their AZ news headlines now, they’ve gone Hollywood. Thank you Ricky Gervais for nailing those F****** balloons to the floor.

    saw headline that Bloomberg thinks his money only counts……….ya think? …….and voters keep proving him right…….black voters think Obama endorses Bloomberg because of ads showing Obama who doesn’t endorse him……….Hispanic voters are being mined for votes because most can’t read and write English and that makes them targets for photo ops like Bloomberg ads….and NOBODY voting is capable of truth finding on their own…ya think that’s why we’ve got the team of losers running again this year? forget bilingual voting ballots, post pictures on voting cards, choose the face that appeals to you most… ya think that’s a good idea? Then you’re one of the voting idiots.
