The impotent and misguided second impeachment of President Trump concluded with a whimper. The Senate voted to acquit on the article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection” regarding the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion. The Democrats fabricated a petty and vindictive snap impeachment, avoiding common protocols and denying due process.

At no time did President Trump urge supporters to commit violence. Instead, he exhorted them to “peaceably and patriotically make your voices heard.” Democrats conveniently excise that portion from their accusations. If using a word like “fight” is the new standard for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” then Congress better prepare to remove Joe Biden and Kamala Harris next. Biden has a history of challenging people to fights.

In March 2020 Biden reportedly threatened a Michigan autoworker saying, “You want to go outside with me?” Harris praised the protests Black Lives Matter facilitated in 2020, stating that nothing the Black community has achieved was done “without a fight.” Are these incitements?

It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party is given a free pass to transform justice into a tool of political vengeance. President Eisenhower stated, “If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party, it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.” Democrats are a “one trick pony” in their maniacal, obsessive hatred for President Trump. That pony, however, is getting old and ready for the glue factory.
