Pelosi Invokes God for Impeachment

Well, if there’s an illustration in the dictionary beside the definition for outrageous, it’s Nancy Pelosi invoking God’s guidance in her bid to remove the President from office. In an address at the Capitol, she “inform[ed] the country that ‘prayerful’ Democrats—following the Founders’ ‘firm reliance on Divine Providence’—will move forward with impeaching President Donald Trump.”
I’m wondering how one can be assured of God’s good, providential guidance in such a move when they themselves admit no actual crimes were committed. They’ve come up with an ingenious, albeit shameful rational for seeking to remove the President: private self-interest. Never mind that something like that is not constitutionally impeachable, nor even provable. We all know they simply want the President gone because he’s not one of them. He’s not in the club. He’s an outsider. He’s not a politician. Ultimately, he’s not part of the neo-con hegemony. And there’s the real rub. He’s a threat to their imperialism. How’s that for irony?
I’m no lover of human government and state power, nor should you be. And that’s one of the reasons why we should support President Trump in this situation. What Pelosi and the Dems are attempting is nothing short of a coup d’etat. It may be without arms, but it’s no less than the attempted overthrow of the U.S. government. To remove a duly elected President is a crime against the Constitution, the nation, and the individuals who voted for him. Betsy McCaughey had this to say: “Impeachment is a vicious crime against voters, who are being robbed of their ability to select any president they want – even an outsider. As Republican Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia lamented, Democrats want to ‘not only impeach the president, they want to impeach every American who voted for him.’”
Even more egregious is the invocation of God. Pelosi went on: “In signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founders invoked a firm reliance on Divine Providence . . . Democrats too are prayerful and we will proceed in a manner worthy of our oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic. So help us, God.” She’s saying they prayed about it, received God’s guidance, and proceeded to declare the President an enemy of America. It takes a lot of nerve to call the President an enemy of America, particularly when he’s committed no crime against the country. But it takes even more nerve to say God is with you in that declaration. It’s too bad that nerve is not the test of God’s approval. More often than not, such nerve is just the opposite. May God be merciful to her, and to all of us, in the end.
