Another sad day.
The Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives has voted to impeach former President Trump. Articles of impeachment are at the US Senate accusing him of 'wilfully inciting violence agains the government of the United States'.
The Democrat-controlled US Senate is scheduled to begin the trial the week of February 8, 2021. Apparently the trial will not be presided over by the Chief Justice of the United States, as called for by the Constitution. Instead, Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont (president pro tempore) will run the 'trial'.
Many think this is an attempt by national Democrats to try and ensure that President Trump, along with the 78 million Americans who voted for him, are shut out of any national political debate.
If you agree, make your voices heard. Express your opinion to our North Carolina Senators. Their addresses are below.
Here is what I am going to say. Please use your own words in your own emails.
Dear Senator (Burr or Tillis) -
I am a registered voter in North Carolina. You are my representative.
Please resist any impeachment or other censure of former President Trump. Any such action will be seen by the nation as a vendetta against the conservative half of the United States. Nothing good will come out of this, and will only further divide our nation.
An appropriate historical moment
I want to make one thing clear. This war against our Constitution is not being fought way off in Madagascar or in Mandalay. It is being fought here — in our schools, our colleges, our churches, our women's clubs. It is being fought with our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought twenty-four hours a day — while we remain asleep."
— William Jenner (1908-1985)
