What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

Luckily, Dems Never Have 'personal, Political' Motives

Apart from the blindingly obvious fact that you can't commit crimes and then escape justice simply by running for president, Democrats take official government action for "personal, political" reasons all the time. Frequently, they do so for the sole purpose of harming their political opponents.
Ann Coulter  "Today we will answer the question: May a president ask a foreign country to investigate corruption if it serves his "personal, political" interests?
"The "personal, political" angle is the last gasp of the impeachment hysterics. (I'm looking at you, Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Susan Collins (Maine), Mitt Romney (Utah) and Ben Sasse (Nebraska).)
"Yes, Donald Trump is, technically, "president," and, yes, former Vice President Joe Biden used his government position to withhold foreign aid until the president of Ukraine fired a prosecutor looking into a company paying Biden's drug addict son millions of dollars for mysterious reasons.
"But, the impeachment fanatics assert, by asking a foreign leader to assist in an otherwise legitimate corruption investigation, Trump has committed a monstrous crime -- because he was pursuing a "personal political interest." To wit: Trump was trying to harm his political opponent, Joe Biden.
"Apart from the blindingly obvious fact that you can't commit crimes and then escape justice simply by running for president, Democrats take official government action for "personal, political" reasons all the time. Frequently, they do so for the sole purpose of harming their political opponents.
"President Barack Obama's IRS investigated and harassed conservative groups for years, using the most fearsome arm of the government to punish political enemies -- for personal, political reasons. Then his Department of Justice refused to prosecute the corrupt officials, which, I believe, was again for -- yes, it was personal, political reasons.
"How about the Obama administration's endless investigations of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson? As was obvious from the outset, Officer Wilson had done absolutely nothing wrong when he fatally shot Mike Brown -- something even Obama's corrupt, subpoena-defying attorney general, Eric Holder, had to concede after reviewing all the evidence.
"Those massive Department of Justice investigations were undertaken to gin up the Democratic base in order to help Hillary, who proceeded to honor Mike Brown's mother on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
"In the most perfect example of a president demanding investigations for no other purpose than serving a "personal, political" interest, in 1999, when Hillary was gearing up to run for the Senate from New York against Mayor Rudy Giuliani, President Bill Clinton (her husband) launched investigation after investigation into the crown jewel of the Giuliani administration, the NYPD.
"If President Clinton had actually cared about police brutality, there were dozens of police forces that should have been probed before he'd ever get to New York.
"Such as, for example, the city Bill and Hillary lived in.
"In 1999, as the NYPD was virtually eliminating crime in New York City, there were a grand total of 11 fatal shootings by police officers. That's 0.28 fatal shootings for every 1,000 officers.
"In Washington, D.C., that year, there were four times as many fatal police shootings -- 1.14 per 1,000 cops. In Houston, the number was 1.68. In San Diego, it was 4.36.
"In the end, Giuliani withdrew from the race to treat his prostate cancer, but when President Clinton was demanding these investigations, Rudy was crushing Hillary both in the polls and in political contributions." . . . Read the
