Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
Amid the swirling rumor, innuendo, outright lies, and buried truths in this week’s political onslaught of impeachment craziness and pundit predictions, the attention from flyover folks settled on two incendiary occurrences: the re-emergence of the angry teenaged Swede and talk of the House settling for plan B to save face and re-election.
It had been a lovely, peaceful few weeks since America – and the world – were subjected to listening to the tiny truant teen climate activist, the angry Greta Thunberg. But just like the creepy spectral beings in the cult movie Poltergeist, Greta is back to haunting our screens – being named as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. As is the tradition, the publication does tend to go with the most controversial figure it predicts will sell copies, and Greta was an excellent choice for raising the ire of middle Americans, like Kelly Heck from Dundee, MI, who commented: “This child is being used as a pawn in a wicked game – shame on her parents for selling her soul for big $$$.”
Other heartlanders weren’t so kind. Blaise Cornell-d’Echert Jr. of Leavenworth, KS, offered his ten cents, saying: “I honor her commitment, but I pity her utter ignorance – and how some many [sic] others that should know better, are leading her by the nose. Does she have a nose ring?”
But it was an innocuous tweet by the instigator in chief that set the looney left into a spectacular tailspin. The president tweeted: “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
Mary Hartz Jr. in Marengo, IA, was quick to chastise President Trump with a simple warning, which read, “Another impeachable offense here. Criticizing a Time magazine person of the year. Actually, Time has so diluted the standards of achievement the award is laughable.” And that comment brought forth one from our friends in the flyover south, North Little Rock, AR, Gary Cates, who added: “The Benevolent Leader of the 3rd Reich was Bestowed this Privilege by Time Magazine in 1938 one month after … Kristallnacht. The Editors can really Pick ‘em.”
Some mused over the number of trees that would be cut down in Greta’s honor, while others felt she just needed to follow the president’s advice. And Carl Fleming in Wyoming had a great idea: “She needs to go home and have a cup Swiss Miss!”
The Safety Dance
Ah, the Democrats appear to be mulling the safety dance of censure in lieu of throwing open Pandora’s Box on House floor by voting on the two nonsensical articles of impeachment. Who didn’t see that coming? As Liberty Nation’s own Graham J. Noble recently wrote, “The Founding Fathers proscribed impeachment for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. These are serious crimes – high crimes. Removing from office a duly elected president for anything less is congressional tyranny. Perhaps, before they step into the abyss, some Democrats are coming to that realization. Or perhaps they are simply guarding their posteriors.”
Chet Calhoun in Tennessee agreed, reflecting: “Are they really ‘DEFECTIONS’… it would be great if they were just voting to uphold FACTS instead of DIM ‘TRUTH’… unfortunately they are more likely than not just trying to cover their ass with voters who upset with these kangaroo courts masquerading as hearings.”
As the earsplitting Swamp serenade of secrets, lies, and the slamming of backroom deals reaches a crescendo, only the Democrats know if it’s impeachment or censure. Or maybe we all know what will happen before the formal vote.
