“When you strike at a king, you must kill him”

Ralph Waldo Emerson famously said “When you strike at a king, you must kill him” to Oliver Wendell Holmes as the latter was attacking Plato. They were jousting with words and Emerson launched that beautiful quote which is so true. 

 

If one seeks to take on the king, then do so with enough force, troops/weaponry and a strategy that will assure the king is killed dead. For if you fail, the king can recover and bring upon your head far worse In retribution than whatever came before the attack.

 

Do you think the Democrats understand this in context to what they are doing today? Have they considered what the next year might be like? Have they considered what a wounded but surviving Trump might be like to deal with up to the election? Worse, have they considered what he could be like if re-elected after all that they have tried to do to “Kill the King”?

Looks like it is going to be open season on Democrats in the coming months with multi pronged investigations.

 

Biden and his son will not escape scrutiny.

 

The sons of Pelosi, Romney and Kerry will also face scrutiny, and as well the sources of parental wealth will come under close focus.

 

The Obama cabal will be investigated, and low hanging fruit such as Rice, Power, and Lynch will probably plead the 5th to escape criminal justice, however Power and Rice will answerin the Civil courts for their unwarranted unmasking of individuals.

 

Obama will also plead the 5th.

I suspect the day after the election there will be a swath of people asked to leave the DoJ, FBI, State Department, and maybe NSA.

The d's will certainly loose seats in the house.  Maybe loose the house period.

And you will see some pardons as well.

They are not worried.

 

They will simply Impeach him again until it finally works.

Only until Nov when they will no longer be in the majority.

Only DJT is not a king and is subject two other co-equal branches of government as envisioned by the framers. The idea that congress's constitutional obligations should be ignored out of fear of retribution is cowardly and anathema to what this country stands for. Threat of such retribution is wholly anti-democratic and ignores the underlying facts of the case.

And that is the part the dimms do not understand or most likely refuse to accept and the reason the who impeachment is hoey but most especially obstruction of Congress.

Talking head on Morning Joe today making the point that Pelosi and the House Democrats are putting country before party given they could “lose the House majority” as a result of impeachment. 

 

They know they are rolling the dice and likely to come up snake eyes. While this pundit was lauding the bravery of the House Dems, it was that second part that give up the ghost, they are likely to lose control.

OMG, have you ever heard of a metaphor? Do you think anything you typed there is not fully apparent to anyone reading this? 

 

Great counter-point bro, tell us another.

If the Dems had something real, and were not just trying to live out their wet dream, it would be bi-partisan and there would be no retribution.

 

However, they have nothing, they are living a dream, and will have to lay in the wet spot when finished.

Unfortunately the bipartisanship that will be displayed will have the democrats seeking retribution on their own.

Tis no wet dream, it is conscious masturbation, which in the true sense is appropriately coming unscrewed.
