So what was the point of the impeachment trial?February 11, 2020 Tim WorstallPolitics24 CommentsSeems to have killed Biden’s chances, which is a result, no? previousSnippa pronounces!nextChristianity has been learnt well here then 24 thoughts on “So what was the point of the impeachment trial?” Bloke in North Dorset February 11, 2020 at 8:04 am I thought the Impeachment was part of the DNCs not ver secret plan to ensure Trump gets re-elected. Ljh February 11, 2020 at 8:40 am It provided Nancy with a stage to perform “demented crone” should she ever come to trial later on. Schiff was able to demonstrate his lying talents. Nadler looked ridiculous. The alternative media could run endless clips of Democrats contradicting the positions they held during the Clinton impeachment when they sounded like normal sane people. MC February 11, 2020 at 9:22 am The alternative media could run endless clips of Democrats contradicting the positions they held during the Clinton impeachment when they sounded like normal sane people. There must be reams of footage showing leading Democrats saying normal, sane things about illegal immigration, the tranny madness etc. Probably from not that long ago. Andrew M February 11, 2020 at 9:42 am As far as conspiracy theories go, this isn’t too shabby. But what’s so flawed about Biden that would make him a target for shadowy high-up Democrats? He was Obama’s Vice President, so he ought to be a safe pair of hands, firmly entrenched in the swamp. dearieme February 11, 2020 at 11:18 am “what’s so flawed about Biden that would make him a target for shadowy high-up Democrats?” That he might impede a Clinton attempt to be drafted at the Dem convention? (If the link already says that, sorry; it won’t open for me.) Steve February 11, 2020 at 11:35 am There’s lots of theories about – merely investigating Biden’s hilariously transparent corruption brought about the impeachment circus, so any subsequent attempt to bring people from the Democrat side up on charges for the looting of the Ukraine after that glow-in-the-dark colour revolution and all the deaths and other unpleasantness that resulted will look like Drumph really is an evil dictator trying to jail his opponents. (If we believe Senile Joe was the only one making fat stacks from the CIA’s excellent Ukrainian adventure, we’ll believe anything). The elderly and painfully white Dem leadership, facing an increasingly brown and hysterical junior cohort, had to back up their Orange Man Bad rhetoric with actions. After the humiliating conclusion to the Mueller Show, the Dems didn’t have a Plan B so were forced into hastily releasing a low-budget soft reboot of Russiagate and it worked out as well as Star Wars The Rise Of The Wokewalker. But maybe there’s no single reason. What if Morpheus from The Matrix told you that today’s Western political elites aren’t, in fact, the technocratic masters of the universe they pretend to be, but ugly and stupid people with the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk? Pat February 11, 2020 at 12:48 pm To show the AOC crowd that they really were doing something, hopefully keeping them for campaigning. To sink Biden before he got a chance to lose to Trump. To clear the way for Bloomberg as the nearest to centrist available candidate. A high risk strategy, since it means a Trump win will likely bring a Republican house with it (why would anyone vote for Trump and also vote for someone who would remove him). But above all because they had to do something and this was something. Gamecock February 11, 2020 at 12:48 pm Best theory – okay, the one I like the most – is that the Impeachment Show was meant to HELP Biden. Tying up his Senate opponents to keep them from campaigning in Iowa. Explains Pelosi’s bizarre month delay in presenting articles to the Senate. “There must be reams of footage showing leading Democrats” Not in HD. The public demands their entertainment to be in HD. “After the humiliating conclusion to the Mueller Show” Democrats are never humiliated. They don’t have an embarrassment gene. Andrew M February 11, 2020 at 1:12 pm “reams of footage showing leading Democrats saying normal, sane things” There are plenty of videos of Hillary Clinton opposing gay marriage, well into the 2000s. But on the Left you’re allowed to change your mind as often as you like, because you’re on the Good Side. Steve February 11, 2020 at 2:51 pm Gamecock – not the demented dentofix harpies and liverspotted sex predators running the circus, the boobs who wore pink hats and bought “It’s Mueller Time!” t-shirts and were relentlessly bragging for over a year that DRUMF IS FINISHED THIS TIME, TICK TOCK ORANGE MAN… Those people are emotionally shattered hollow shells of humanity after allowing Bovine Spongiform Wokeyitis to Weinstein their amygdalas. TD February 11, 2020 at 3:09 pm Losers always come out of any battle weaker than the winners, so if you tilt at a windmill you ought to smart enough to know ahead of time that you’ll come out of it weaker than the windmill. The Dems have managed to make themselves look very stupid, small and petty. So much for Nancy Pelosi’s vaunted skills as a political tactician. I’m not a big Trump fan, but he runs circles around these people. The one and only person running against Trump who could probably prove a formidable match for him in intelligence is Bloomberg. I’m not a big fan of the authoritarian Bloomberg either, but I can see that he could give Trump a real fight. The mega rich who’ve tried to buy office have had limited success, but Bloomberg has successfully done it before. I go on the theory that you vote for the person you think will harm you least, and right now that puts me in Trump’s corner. A lot of people apparently feel that way. Dennis, Tiresome Denizen of Central Ohio February 11, 2020 at 4:40 pm While the Biden family corruption highlighted during the impeachment process certainly was of no help, the idea that it sank Joe Biden isn’t borne out by reality. Joe Biden is both glib and stupid. He was a gaffe machine when he ran in 1988 and if anything, he’s worse these days. He’s been all over the map position-wise as well, claiming on one day to be a centrist, the next claiming to support each and every extremist left position you can find on any particular policy issue. And the final fact is this: Joe Biden was an obscure senator when Barack Obama chose him as his running mate… He brought nothing to the table (which is what Obama wanted, by the way). People talk about him in terms of being electable, rather than desirable. Which is, in and of itself, an admission that he’s just another garden-variety Washington politician. Biden was doomed from the start. He’s running for president because he happened to be standing in the right spot, nothing more. Steve February 11, 2020 at 5:23 pm Dennis – True, his bizarre geriatricisms (“No Malarkey!”, calling women “dog faced pony soldiers”, insane stories about how he earned the respect of the darkies through poolside fisticuffs) have probably hurt him more than his obvious thievery. His eyeball filling up with blood live on TV probably lost him more votes still. I don’t think Cronenbergesque body horror is something most Americans are looking for in their President. But you’re wrong about this: He brought nothing to the table He was an unthreatening old Dem establishment white guy who helped the relatively young and noobish Obama look more electable to donors, boomers and middle of the roaders. Somebody’s gotta play the straight man in any double act – see Mike Pence. Gamecock February 11, 2020 at 5:27 pm Biden was selected as he gave us Barrack, the Magic Negro. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” – Joe Biden, January 2007 https://www.latimes.com/la-oe-ehrenstein19mar19-story.html “Obama the ‘Magic Negro’” https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2007/03/23/barack_the_magic_negro_explained/ “Remember, Joe Biden said, ‘Hey, we got the first clean, articulate, intelligent black guy running for president.’ How do you think this makes Sharpton feel?” Bloke on M4 February 11, 2020 at 5:34 pm Steve, “What if Morpheus from The Matrix told you that today’s Western political elites aren’t, in fact, the technocratic masters of the universe they pretend to be, but ugly and stupid people with the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk?” I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re all rather shit, on all sides, for at least 30 years. We might look back fondly on people like Mrs Thatch and Normo Tebbs, but I think they were rare creatures. Mostly hated by the media and political blob like Harold Macmillan. People might talk up Benn as a political giant, but he did Concorde, HS2 with wings and ICL, HS2 for nerds. Gamecock February 11, 2020 at 5:37 pm This just in: Democrats to run Mickey Mouse. https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/02/11/biden-we-could-run-mickey-mouse-against-this-president-and-have-a-shot/ Dennis: Oppressor, Warmonger, Capitalist and Consumer of Petroleum Products February 11, 2020 at 6:03 pm He was an unthreatening old Dem establishment white guy who helped the relatively young and noobish Obama look more electable to donors, boomers and middle of the roaders. Somebody’s gotta play the straight man in any double act – see Mike Pence. Hadn’t thought of it that way. You are correct (three words I never thought I’d be throwing in your direction).

Blames trump for America’s problems. You know who’s more stupid than Joe Biden? His voter base Folks, in November don’t forget Trump was impeached for a crime Joe Biden commited TomO February 11, 2020 at 11:56 pm Folks, in November don’t forget Trump was impeached for a crime Joe Biden commited If the Dems persist and manage to rewire Biden and get a half competent taxidermist to paste over the scars – that would make a grand electioneering slogan. Given Biden’s abrupt run away from New Hampshire – I think that Joe’s blown too many circuits and has been temporarily switched off so that sparking wires can be checked out. ps I’m glad somebody else has noticed Nancy’s herculean struggle finding a working dental fixative BniC February 12, 2020 at 3:44 am Maybe they realise Trump is going to win regardless of who gets to be his competition from their sorry bunch so they will let Bernie run so he can be the ultimate loser, shuts him up and leaves his supporters up for grabs. That also paves the way for the election after when they don’t have an incumbent to worry about and they can run their preferred candidate. Can’t see it being a woman for a while as I doubt Hillary could bear seeing another women achieve what she couldn’t and she still has some sway it seems. TomO February 12, 2020 at 11:23 am BniC Trump’s primary results get little play on the BBC … and Barr is rounding up some swampers….. Chris Miller February 12, 2020 at 3:56 pm Selecting a candidate to lose against Trump in November is the most important thing going on in the world right now. Or so the BBC keeps telling me. I suppose someone’s got to keep Wee Jimmy Naughtie in Avios points. Pcar February 12, 2020 at 9:30 pm Biden – Ricky Gervais in disguise?
