The Virtue Of Impeachment

According to official media, the House Democrats are finally ready to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate for a trial. Assuming it actually happens, the trial will be a circus to allow the various crackpots and show ponies to perform for the cable news audiences. Everyone will pretend it is serious until the ratings come in from the polling operations and then the show will close. The only people who think otherwise are the cranks and weirdos on the Left.

That said, the inner party has permitted this charade to happen for more than just theatrical reasons. They have an election show scheduled for this year and that will provide plenty of entertainment. The Iowa Caucuses are a little over two weeks away and the New Hampshire primary is three weeks away. That’s more than enough entertainment to keep people from noticing too much. The question then is why are they bothering with this straight-to-video impeachment show.

Every society has certain codes of conduct that may or may not be formalized in writing, but are accepted by everyone. These codes may be amplified or prioritized by personal codes of conduct, but the general morality is accepted as the public morality. In many cases, it is assumed the morality of one’s society is a universal morality that applies to all times and places, but that is a confusion in terms. Codes of conduct that apply in narrow conditions are different from general social codes.

In the West, public morality says the people should be sovereign and pick representatives the people occupying public offices. The will of the people should be expressed in the law. In the Arab world, public morality is defined by the Koran, not Enlightenment philosophy. Therefore, government should be run by righteous Muslims, according to the rules of Islam. These are different codes of conduct, not expressions of a universal morality, like the prohibition against murder.

In current year America, the ruling class is now fully detached from the society over which it rules, so it has begun to acquire its own moral code. You see this in the Democrat primary where candidates are running around preaching about the plight of transvestites or lecturing on white privilege. To normal people, these are bizarre fetishes that have to salience. Inside the ruling class they have become important moral signifiers, rooted in the common morality of the ruling class.

That brings us back to impeachment. The official narrative says he has been impeached because the political class thinks he violated his oath of office in his dealings with Ukraine. The official alternative narrative is the Democrats did this out of spite over losing the 2016 election. Those are the two sides of the official sandwich regarding impeachment. Within that framing, both sides are expected to scream at one another through the proxy of cable news programs.

Then there is the official outsider view that says this is part of some grand chess strategy over the seditious plot conducted by the security agencies. The inner party is using impeachment to stall the investigation into the that and the many other corrupt projects during the Obama years. While there may be some truth to this, it is clear that Bill Barr is willing and able to cover all of this up on his own. Still, there may be some people in the party who would like the assurance that the caper is properly buried.

There may be another reason why this impeachment thing will not die and that is the evolving morality of the ruling class. They hate Trump, not because of what he does or even what he says. They hate him for who he is and who he represents. He is the rejection of their morality. The Democrats could make a spending deal with him in a heartbeat, but they refuse because to do so would legitimize him and what he represents to them. They simply cannot do that.

If you think about the last four years, the main argument against Trump by all sides of the political class is that he is lacking in character. Maybe the point of entry is his womanizing or his crude statements. The neoconservatives have endlessly lectured on his moral failings. The Israeli first zealot, Ben Shapiro, has repeatedly said he opposes Trump on moral grounds, despite giving the Zionists everything they ask. It turns out that “who they are” is not Trump and what he represents.

The one thing the ruling class gets right is that the American experiment is unique in world history. No society has tried to combine extreme egalitarianism, the blank slate and democracy into a civic religion. Since two legs of that stool are in direct conflict with human nature, that leaves two choices. One is the traditional radical approach of exterminating everything that does not fit the new morality. The other is to redefine one of the legs of the stool to solve the conflict.

What impeachment suggests is the leg in for redefining will be democracy. The new definition of it will be something like Henry Ford’s choice of colors. The people can vote for whomever they like, as long as the candidate comports with the public morality of the ruling class. Rules will evolve to make sure no one like Trump can every gain access to official Washington. The political elite will become a closed system with a unique set of moral codes.

That may be the real point of impeachment. People like Adam Schiff appear to be insane, but he is just one of the berserkers of the emerging new morality. The point is not to remove Trump, but to codify him in such a way that his presence reinforces the new morality. Inside Washington, impeachment is already a moral signifier. The looming impeachment show will give the faithful in the ruling elite a chance to publicly display their virtue to their coreligionists inside the ruling class.

So our choices for the next four years are:

Or

For Us the main virtue of impeachment is the mass-black-pilling of non-elite imperial patriotism and faith in the System. Z recently cited the masses’ indifference to this circus compared with Watergate. It’s a sign of progress for us and a corresponding warning to the media of how rotten they look to a growing majority of the population. The dogs won’t eat the kosher kibble.

But hey, whaddaya gonna do, amirite?” The full message which should be broadcast is: Epstein did not kill himself, he was murdered.

I agree with you , but – there is far too much reticence among normies to frontally attack Jews currently. But maybe that’s a situation that can be taken advantage of. The Evening News , which I watch because it’s a good indicator of where normie is and where they’re trying to lead him to go – has in recent months been full bore on the “anti-semitism” thing.

Bile, the CIA was the expansion of the OSS, who hunted down ‘werewolves’, into an East India Company, organized by ((Wall Street)).

‘Werewolves’ were German partisan saboteurs who knew that the Morganthou Plan plotted to exterminate the German race postwar.
The planners did get 12 million.

The British, French, and Dutch East India Companies were pirates with letters of marque, joint stock companies owned by the same ethnicity as Goldman Sachs.

The CIA and MI6 are both devoted to covert financial warfare. “Intelligence gathering” my azz. Well, ok, for blackmail and bribery.

When the president issues an EO defining Jewish as an ethnicity you know something has changed.

It starts with jokes, then criticism, then persecution (though still hard to believe that would happen in America). Jews know this from experience. Hence the EO.

Jews as an ethnicity is an acknowledgement of reality and contra the blank slate. Their genome is sufficiently distinct to merit that, at least for Ashkenazis.

As a practical matter, Trump’s action is of little import. The country is already chock full of protected groups. Adding one more is accelerationist. The real issues are freedom of expression and association. Those are essentially lost, regardless of how many protected groups there are.

I think it is more that they see beating Trump will be difficult, even if possible. The first stringers, such as they are, want a sure thing which the Hildebeast thought she had. So a smart first stringer, knowing Trump is gone by 2024 regardless, waits it out. Neither bench is very deep, and in GOPland, Trump is absolutely a one-off. Michael Obama is biding its time.

Respectfully disagree, ENS. Trump’s been more an “outraging ball” than a “wrecking ball.” In terms of intended consequences, I don’t think he’s dented anything, much less wrecked anything. He tweets and makes wine aunties mad, but it’s all sizzle, no steak. The shambolic soap-opera theatrics of this administration are having an unintended positive effect for Us in that it’s a live-action sh*t-show that’s revealing the bad stage management that controls “the most powerful man on Earth” (and has for decades, not just re: Trump).

Maybe I’m not old enough to recognize any historical correlate, but I simply cannot see any coherent political platform arising out of the younger generation of democrats. After Biden and Bloomberg are gone, there will be no centrist, rational candidate to take the party forward.

GloboSchlomo can’t afford a Trump. If he questions even a part of their operation without repercussions, other whites might start questioning other aspects of their regime. What holds whites down is 1) never-ending propaganda and 2) fear of losing everything. Trump threatens both of those.

The more volatility injected into the system the better.

The balloon needs to go up. At this point that’s the only way. Which means that things are going to get a lot worse.

Save for a relative few moonbats on the left, no one really thinks the impeachment is anything beyond a partisan lynching. And I think there’s little chance there will be a show trial, which would surely implicate deep state criminals. The likely scenario will be a summary vote to dismiss.

And another thing. If the economy doesn’t nosedive south, Trump will win in a landslide, even with the usual massive shithole urban area voter fraud.

Jews did well in the early Soviet Union, but were gradually pushed out of power following WWII. In the 1970s, Jews decided that they were being “persecuted” in the Soviet Union and successfully lobbied for the Jackson-Vanik amendment that opened the doors to Jewish emigration from the USSR and eastern Europe (except for Poland).

It was a difficult life for most of the people in the Soviet Union, except for the nomenklatura cloud people elite, but only the Jews mattered.

I think that zionists hoped that the eastern European Jews would resettle in Israel, but most preferred the US.

However, this seems to have been a Hobbesian bargain. These new “Jews” were as a rule fairly secular, knew little about Judaism, were not Zionists, and had few records which the Rabbis could use to authenticate their true “Jewishness” upon arrival.

It was the immigration issue first…i couldn’t understand why a “leftist” party would eagerly choose to import workers and depress wages. Naturally that led to me noticing the anti-white biases of the party, then of the New Left in general. The alt-right/d-right attracted me because it was largely anti-capitalist, anti-immigration, anti-war, and was more realistic about social issues if you ignored the memes and paid attention to the coherent voices. If you liked Trump’s policies but didn’t like his style or personality, as I didn’t, Bernie was an excellent alternative. In 2016.

Next time, McConnell is saying, we might vote to convict, no matter how slim the evidence. Its sad, but the American people have not supported Trump, but the establishment, at the ballot box. Jones replaced Sessions, they elected Mittens, and they gave Pelosi the House. The true “enemy of the people” is “the people”. They’ll need their noses rubbed in it, good and hard, before they’ll change. Assuming… Read more »

In Iran they actually have a branch of government call the Guardian Council whose job is to vet candidates for office to make sure they comport with the public morality of the ruling class. Their Constitution is a surprisingly well thought out system IMO. It’s a quite authentic mixture of democracy and theocracy.

Doesn’t a Senate impeachment trial, at this moment, force a difficult choice on any senators who might also be campaigning for the Democratic nomination? If you go to New Hampshire in the next few weeks, you’re absconding from the trial of the century: you’re in dereliction of duty as far as the Democratic base is concerned, and even the smarter primary voters might concede you’ve handed the Republicans a powerful argument with their base, and maybe swing voters too. (“He voted for impeachment and didn’t attend the trial, see, they already made their minds up, they don’t care about evidence!”)… Read more »

Impeachment is such a blatantly Jewish project it cannot help but be a good thing in the long run. It shows even a Zionist stooge like Trump will be targeted if he isn’t approved by the Tribe. It’s possibly the most red-pilling event imaginable and that’s exactly what the white population needed. I want to see Trump re-elected (and suspect he will be handily) largely because the Deep State/Left/Inner State will go even more insane and this in turn will red-pill even more people. The blatantly Jewish impeachment project, along with the naked disdain for the white masses, has radicalized… Read more »

I’m not sure you’re correct, but I sure hope you are. From your keyboard to God’s ear.

Oh. Sorry, special people, I meant “From your keyboard to G-d’s ear.”

Dunno why, but that g-dash-d thing has always annoyed me.

Got any thoughts on this ZMan?

Seems the Elite are getting themselves accustomed to the idea of ruling openly, both a good and bad sign.

I think the ruling class’ new moral code becomes the dividing line between the two new parties that are emerging in the US right now. I agree that they’ll use it to define who is “not them” – their signature “that’s not who we are” is their calling card. Obviously, they don’t mean “we” as in “Americans”. They mean “we” as in “the ruling class”. So, it is a help means to discriminate between the ruling class and the ruled. “We” does not include “me”. Hence the two utterly different sets of rules they operate under. In their law book,… Read more »

Me thinks the impeachment spectacle is clarifying the epidemic of insanity that currently infests DC. There are no adults in the room and the inmates are running the asylum. There will be a crash and burn moment, followed by chaos and conflict, revolution and civil war, a jackboot reaction, and the incipient rise of tyranny. Should this come to pass, the Mainstreet USA immune system will hopefully step forth the remedy this malady via focusing on the virus.

I wonder if one can make the argument that the elite are more transparent in this time, than in any other time in history – due wholly to communicative technologies like the intenet, and what that means for the reaction, when it comes.

Taki’s has a good article on “motte and bailey” defense, more easily understood as an “outpost protects the heartland” defense.

For example, Tibet is inhospitable and unimportant, except for one thing: running interference. If India held Tibet, they could easily attack the Chinese heartland.

So in addition to “moral signifiers”, the bizarre fetishes act as defensive outlands, drawing wasted fire and protecting what is truly important: the heartlands of position and stolen wealth.

Bit late to the party, but here’s my shot at diagnosing the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) virus making the Cloud People openly crazy. I think that Lt Col Vindman (yes, seriously) gave us the key in his impeachment testimony. He cited ‘the interagency process’ as who/what should be in charge of US foreign policy, not Pres. Trump. IOW, these are Process People and P Trump is a Results Guy. So all of a sudden they don’t matter because their expertise is worthless and their claim to rule is nullified. Simplistic, sure, but not every question has a complex answer, though… Read more »

Wake up all, the real “Correction” is finally here and it will be all encompassing. The Barr/ Durham thing is a cleanup operation. Nothing of substance will come of that, a few things to try to fool us, but a cover-up of the most epic event in our country’s history. I believe that if you don’t see what is happening, you are not watching. Steel your resolve.
