According to the Department of Defence, Donald Trump is still the President of the United States, whether the Democrats or Nancy Pelosi want you to believe that or not!
The horrific events that took place at Capitol Hill on Jan.6th are being used by the Democrats to continue their party-political agenda, as they attempt to remove the President from office before his term is complete.
Nancy Pelosi has allegedly been in contact with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A, Milley, attempting to limit the President’s power, and remove him from the place of commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.
Pelosi wanted a coup
General Milley, in a call made on Friday, explained to the power-hungry Speaker of the House how the procedures work and made clear that the military wouldn’t take part in any coup made against the current commander-in-chief.
The Democrats are now looking at other options, which include impeachment and the potential of enacting the 25th amendment.
However, the 25th is unlikely to be a viable option given resignations in the cabinet and the loyalty Mike Pence still holds to the President.
Nancy Pelosi, alongside other top Democrats, have threatened to impeach the President again unless he resigns, stating the charge of “wilfully inciting violence against the government of the United States.”
However, does this impeachment hold any basis for a legitimate trial and criminal charge?
In short? No.
The charge of incitement of violence is a tricky line to follow and has to be enacted consistently.
The Democrats, the media, and other opponents of President Trump are claiming that his speech in Washington DC, hours before the Capitol riots, incited violence and directly caused those riots to happen.
Well, that is not the case.
In his speech, President Trump told his peaceful supporters; “We’ll never give up. We’ll never concede. We will not take it anymore.”
He then told his supporters to march on the Capitol and let their voices be heard.
Donald Trump at no point asked the protestors to enter the building and cause security risks for the Capitol officials and staff.
Remember Kamala Harris’s tweets?
However, if Trump’s tweets were incitement of violence, the House should look into legal actions against Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for her comments regarding the Black Lives Matter movement.
In June 2020, during an interview with Stephen Colbert discussing the Black Lives Matter movement, Harris said; “They’re not going to stop. And everyone beware because they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. And that should be, everyone should take note of that, on both levels, that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not.”
Now, to be fair, this tweet does need some context.
Colbert and Harris were discussing the peaceful BLM protests, however, in the same month after her comment was made, BLM took to the streets of Washington DC and set them ablaze.
If President Trump, whilst addressing his peaceful protesters, was inciting violence, so did Kamala Harris during this interview.
Pelosi also called for uprisings
Context is important, which is why it is also important to understand the hypocrisy in the position of the Democrats, especially that of Nancy Pelosi.
In an interview conducted in 2018, Nancy Pelosi, while referencing a policy that originated in the Obama administration, that enforced separation of the illegal immigrants at the border, said; “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. And maybe there will be, when people realize that this is a policy that they defend.”
Now, although no violence took place after Nancy Pelosi made these comments, it’s still important to understand that these are more worthy examples of incitement of violence than what President Trump said to his supporters at his DC rally.
Context matters, and unfortunately for them, context is not running in favour of the Democrats.
