Preface to Republican speech (Jim Jordan) opposing Pelosi’s “Show Trial” (our words):
Yesterday, Pelosi’s House followers undertook a Mussolini-Nazi-Soviet style show trial, which finished destroying any pretense of the United States having any kind of moral high ground and made a mockery of us. Recall that both the USSR and Nazis were “socialists”. They weren’t utopian socialists but authoritarian state capitalist dictatorships like those controlling the US House wish to impose.
Pelosi and her Party followers accuse Trump of being what they themselves are. But if you read the bills she puts forth and watch her behavior, the truth is clear. Replace Mussolini with Pelosi, Italian with American and Blackshirts with BLM-Antifa-Black Bloc and you will see the truth. Her mother was born in Italy and apparently taught her authoritarianism. Her family only married Italians up until one of her children married a non-Italian. Why did they move to the USA if they only love Italians?
“Mussolini’s foremost priority was the subjugation of the minds of the Italian people through the use of propaganda… He was also head of the all-powerful Fascist Party and the armed local fascist militia, the MVSN or “Blackshirts”, who terrorized incipient resistance in the cities and provinces. He would later form the OVRA, an institutionalized secret police that carried official state support. In this way he succeeded in keeping power in his own hands and preventing the emergence of any rival… Newspaper editors were all personally chosen by Mussolini, and only those in possession of a certificate of approval from the Fascist Party could practice journalism. These certificates were issued in secret; Mussolini thus skillfully created the illusion of a “free press”…” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benito_Mussolini
“A show trial is a public trial in which the judicial authorities have already determined the guilt, and/or innocence, of the defendant. The actual trial has as its only goal the presentation of both the accusation and the verdict to the public so they will serve as both an impressive example and a warning to other would-be dissidents or transgressors. Show trials tend to be retributive rather than corrective and they are also conducted for propagandistic purposes. The term was first recorded in 1928. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Show_trial
UA House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) took to the House Floor yesterday to speak out against an impeachment that hasn’t had a single House hearing.

Uncorrected Closed Caption of Jim Jordon from C-Span.org (partly corrected by us):
“I THANK THE GENTLEMAN FOR YIELDING. THE DEMOCRAT CHAIR OF THE RULES COMMITTEE SAID THAT REPUBLICANS LAST WEEK VOTED TO OVERTURN THE RESULTS OF AN ELECTION.
GUESS WHO THE FIRST OBJECTOR WAS ON JANUARY 6, 2017? FIRST OBJECTOR — THE DEMOCRAT CHAIR OF THE RULES COMMITTEE.
AND GUESS WHICH STATE HE OBJECTED TO? ALABAMA. THE VERY FIRST STATE THEY CALLED, ALABAMA. PRESIDENT TRUMP, I THINK, WON ALABAMA WITH LIKE 80 POINTS. ACTUALLY WON IT BY 30 POINTS. THEY CAN OBJECT.
THEY CAN OBJECT TO ALABAMA IN 2017, BUT TELL US WE CAN’T OBJECT TO PENNSYLVANIA IN 2021? PENNSYLVANIA, WHERE THE STATE SUPREME COURT JUST UNILATERALLY EXTENDED THE ELECTION TO FRIDAY.
PENNSYLVANIA, WHERE THE SECRETARY OF STATE UNILATERALLY CHANGED THE RULES, WENT AROUND THE LEGISLATURE IN AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL FASHION?
PENNSYLVANIA, YOU CAN IMAGINE WHICH COUNTIES THEY WERE, LET PEOPLE FIX THEIR BALLOTS? AGAINST THE LAW, FIXED, CURE THEIR MAIL-IN BALLOTS, A DIRECTION VIOLATION OF THE LAW. AND THEY TELL US WE TRIED TO OVERTURN THE ELECTION.
GUESS WHO THE SECOND OBJECTOR WAS IN 2017? THE INDIVIDUAL MANAGING THE IMPEACHMENT FOR THE DEMOCRATS.
AMERICANS ARE TIRED OF THE DOUBLE STANDARD. THEY ARE SO TIRED OF IT. DEMOCRATS OBJECT TO MORE STATES IN 2017 THAN REPUBLICANS DID LAST WEEK, BUT SOMEHOW WE’RE WRONG.
DEMOCRATS CAN RAISE BAIL FOR RIOTERS AND LOOTERS THIS SUMMER, BUT SOMEHOW WHEN REPUBLICANS CONDEMN ALL THE VIOLENCE, THE VIOLENCE THIS SUMMER, THE VIOLENCE LAST WEEK, SOMEHOW WE’RE WRONG.
AND DEMOCRATS CAN INVESTIGATE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AS MR. HOYER WENT THROUGH, TRIED TO IMPEACH HIM, INVESTIGATE HIM FOR FOUR YEARS, BUT WILL NOT LOOK AT AN ELECTION THAT 80 MILLION AMERICANS, HALF THE ELECTORATE, 80 MILLION, REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS, HAVE THEIR DOUBTS ABOUT.
I SAID THIS LAST NIGHT. I DO NOT KNOW WHERE ALL THIS GOES, AND THIS IS FRIGHTENING FOR THE COUNTRY. WE SHOULD DEFEAT THIS RULE AND DEFEAT THE IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION WHEN IT COMES UP.
19 MINUTES. 19 MINUTES, FOUR YEARS AGO ON INAUGURATION, JANUARY 20, 19 MINUTE INTO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION AT 2:19 P.M. “THE WASHINGTON POST” HEADLINE WAS, CAMPAIGN TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEGUN.
AN NOW WITH JUST ONE WEEK LEFT, THEY’RE STILL TRYING. IN SEVEN DAYS THERE’LL BE A PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER JUST LIKE THERE’S BEEN EVERY OTHER TIME IN OUR COUNTRY, BUT DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP AGAIN.
THIS DOESN’T UNITE THE COUNTRY. THERE’S NO WAY THIS HELPS THE NATION DEAL WITH THE TRAGIC AND TERRIBLE EVENTS OF LAST WEEK THAT WE ALL CONDEMN
AND REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT, WE’VE CONDEMNED ALL THE VIOLENCE, ALL THE TIME.
WE CONDEMNED IT LAST SUMMER.
WE CONDEMNED IT LAST WEEK.
WE SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON BRINGING THE NATION TOGETHER. INSTEAD DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT FOR A SECOND TIME, ONE WEEK, ONE WEEK BEFORE HE LEAVES OFFICE. WHY?
WHY? POLITICS AND THE FACT THAT THEY WANT TO CANCEL THE PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT WHO CUT TAX, PRESIDENT WHO REDUCED REGULATION, THE PRESIDENT WHO PRIOR TO COVID HAD THE GREATEST ECONOMY, LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT IN 50 YEARS, WHO GOT US OUT OF IRAN DEAL, PUT THE EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM, BROUGHT HOSTAGES HOME FROM NORTH KOREA, PUT THREE GREAT JUSTICES ON THE SUPREME COURT, GAVE ?THINKS? ABRAHAM ACCORDS, THE COVID VACCINE AND WHO BUILT THE WALL.
IT’S ABOUT POLITICS. THIS IS ABOUT GETTING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THEY SPIED ON HIS CAMPAIGN BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED.
19 MINUTES BEFORE HE WAS — 19 MINUTE INTO HIS ELECTION THEY STARTED THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. $40 MILLION TO FIND NOTHING.
IMPEACHMENT ROUND ONE BASED ON ANONYMOUS WHISTLE BLOWER WE ?HAD? NO FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE WHO WAS BIASED AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND WORKED FOR JOE BIDEN, NOW IT’S IMPEACHMENT ROUND TWO IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT GETTING THE PRESIDENT, NO MATTER WHAT.
IT’S AN OBSESSION. AN OBSESSION THAT’S NOW BROADENED. NOT JUST ABOUT IMPEACHMENT ANYMORE. IT’S ABOUT CANCEL, AS I SAID. CANCELING THE PRESIDENT AND ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THEM.
THE AYATOLLAH CAN TWEET, THE PRESIDENT CAN’T. DEMOCRATS CAN OBJECT ON JANUARY 6, 2017, BUT REPUBLICANS AREN’T ALLOWED TO OBJECT ON JANUARY 6, 2021.
DEMOCRATS SAY ANTIFA IS A MYTH. REPUBLICANS CONDEMN ALL VIOLENCE, ALL THE TIME. THE DOUBLE STANDARD HAS TO STOP.
FRANKLY, THE ATTACK ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT HAS TO STOP. STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT. DO YOU HAVE A FUNCTIONING FIRST AMENDMENT WHEN THE CANCEL CULTURE ONLY ALLOWS ONE SIDE TO TALK? WHEN YOU CAN’T EVEN HAVE A DEBATE IN THIS COUNTRY, THIS GREAT COUNTRY, THE GREATEST COUNTRY EVER?
IT NEEDS TO STOP BECAUSE IF IT CONTINUES, IF IT CONTINUES IT WON’T JUST BE REPUBLICANS WHO GET CANCELED, IT WON’T JUST BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE CANCEL CULTURE WILL COME FOR US ALL.
AMERICA IS A GREAT COUNTRY. THE GREATEST COUNTRY EVER. IT SEEMS TO ME, WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT HOW GREAT THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION REALLY ARE. THINK ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED IN THE PAST. AND BEGIN TO COME TOGETHER AS LEADERS. WHO REPRESENT SO MANY GREAT FOLKS ACROSS OUR DISTRICTS. THINK ABOUT THIS. THINK ABOUT THIS. IN 1903, KITTY HAWK, NORTH CAROLINA, TWO GUYS FLY THIS THING THEY CALL A PLANE 100 FEET. BARELY GOT OFF THE GROUND. BARELY GOT OFF THE GROUND. AMAZING THING. 44 YEARS LATER, CHUCK YEAGER BREAKS THE SOUND BARRIER. 44 YEARS WE GO FROM TWO GUYS FLYING A CONTRAPTION THEY CALLED A PLANE A FEW HUNDRED FEET TO CHUCK YEAGER BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER AND 22 YEARS AFTER THAT 22 YEARS AFTER THAT, ANOTHER AMERICAN STEPS ON THE MOON. THINK ABOUT IT. IN ONE LIFETIME. IN 66 YEARS. TWO GUYS FLYING 100 FEET TO PUTTING A MAN ON THE MOON. THAT’S WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS CAPABLE OF. THAT’S WHAT WE CAN DO.
AND WE AS A CONGRESS WHO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE WHO DID THAT SHOULD START LEADING. SHOULD START UNDERSTANDING WHAT REALLY IS GOING ON HERE. SO I HOPE, I HOPE WE DEFEAT THIS. I HOPE WE CAN BEGIN TO COME TOGETHER AND RECOGNIZE THE GREATEST O– GREATNESS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FOCUS ON THE THINGS THEY WANT US TO FOCUS ON. I YIELD BACK OUR TIME. RESERVE OUR TIME. https://www.c-span.org/video/?507879-101/house-impeaches-president-trump-time-232-197
