Only two US Presidents in history have been impeached; Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson. Nixon resigned before impeachment processes could be initiated. Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice when he lied to a grand jury and then attempted to force others to lie on his behalf. Johnson was impeached for dismissing his secretary of war without judicial process through the senate.
Clinton was acquitted by the Senate despite the fact that he admitted his guilt. Johnson was also acquitted.
Technically, no President has ever been impeached. I imagine it is more about the preservation of legacy and the government pension than one of innocence.
When Hillary was in the running for President there was much talk about whether she would pardon all her crimes. The consensus was that Constitutionally, there is no reason she could not pardon her crimes, she could not pardon her impeachment because that is under the rule of the senate and house. After impeachment, a President would be subject to trial and judgment, at that point he no longer holds the powers of President and can not pardon himself. However, any crimes committed prior to an impeachment can be pardoned under Article II, Section 2.
Why is this relevant? Soros does not sit still. Apparently, the media is glutinously reporting on frivolous news, while the real stories remain obscured. Censorship has been in effect for decades, we have only just become aware.
It is the preamble for why the Maxine Waters of the world screech for impeachment, because only then would Trump be subject to potential trial and judgment. And only then can the US be saved for the advent of the Socialist regime change.
So while the New York Times splashes a politically devisive statement that “Trump and His Lawyers Embrace A Vision of Vast Executive Power”, they ignore the global implications of Soros new agenda for Europe and Africa. Of course, the purposeful folly of Alice in Wonderland scavenger hunts while massive economic spins are being unraveled is an age old tactic employed by The Swamp as administered by the Swamp Master – Soros..
Could it be that while the world turns, the media is left spinning “Un-News”?
In the midst of the trade imbalances currently being negotiated, Vladimir Putin has announced that Soros intends to manipulate Euro volatility. Multiple outcomes would be generated. A devalued Euro increases EU exports and reduces sovereign debt burdens. It would also have the effect of increasing US trade deficits. But devaluing a currency can also trigger other countries into a tit-for-tat race which could ultimately spur another recession. In time for the 2020 election…
And thus the objective for a New Day hero to save us from ourselves – Soros.
The key is the fact that Putin said “volatility” not devaluation. In other words, playing the forex as in trading currencies. This year, the Euro has dropped roughly 10% with shorts reaching 43%. The British pound is also on a downward stretch having risen significantly between May of last year and January 2018. Trend lines indicate the bearish cycle will continue.
In a May speech before the European Council on Foreign Relations, Soros staged his ‘dire diagnosis’ for the EU which he says began as a result of the migration chaos. Short term memory – he ordered Merkel to open Germany’s borders – and she complied. But Soros doesn’t care about what he said – only what he says now.
Soros has a plan that he outlined to save the EU and thus the world from the current crisis that he helped create:
He wants to institute a Marshall Plan for Africa in which the EU will ante up over $35 billion per year for an indeterminate length of time so as to build up an economically viable African nation. In order to do this the EU must abandon the concept of ‘austerity’ and use its credit rating to borrow funds from financial entities, like Soros Fund Management, and staunch the flight of capital from emerging market currencies.
The way to finance this new debt is a devalued currency which makes the cost of existing debt – less. Currently, Germany’s debt load costs roughly $53 billion Euro per year, France and Spain are equivalent, Italy is over 90 billion. Devaluing the euro equates to a devalued interest burden. Given a burden of about 250 billion per year in these four EU countries alone – a Euro currency devaluation would create 25 billion in ‘excess’ funds that Soros would allocate to Africa… via his Marshall Plan which in essence he already put into effect January 2018.
Putting tariffs on the EU countries could help mitigate the currency devaluation. Somewhat.
The effects of the Marshall Plan implemented by the US on behalf of Europe after WWII has been much debated. It succeeded in allowing American businesses to capitalize on government subsidies to Europe. And it gave the US government power over the governments of Europe.
Taking control of Africa’s development is a coup of vast proportions, but Soros has never been one to do things in a small way.
