Flashback: When House Democrats tried to impeach Ronald Reagan

Nearly forgotten episode of American history

Ronald ReaganMany House Republicans have argued their Democratic colleagues have presented articles of impeachment against President Trump based not on any crime but largely on differences over policy.

It’s not the first time. On Nov. 11, 1983, seven House Democrats introduced a draft resolution to impeach President Ronald Reagan for “ordering the invasion of Grenada in violation of the Constitution.”

In 2019, Democrats dismiss as “conspiracy theories” allegations of corruption related to Ukraine to affect the 2016 election along with Hunter Biden’s profiting from a corrupt Ukrainian company while his father oversaw Ukraine policy.

In 1983, Democrats apparently had no concern about the threat of another Caribbean island nation falling to communism.

A new Fox Nation documentary, “Reagan’s Fury: Battle for Grenada,” reexamines the invasion of Grenada in 1983, which FoxNews.com noted is an event that is now celebrated by Grenadians as a day of liberation from the oppression of Marxist communism.

“When President Ronald Reagan took office, many Americans viewed communism as basically just another political system that the free world had to deal with and co-exist with,” narrated Fox News’ chief political anchor, Bret Baier.

“But to Reagan, the threat of the Soviet Union and others who spoke of worldwide Marxist revolution could not be ignored,” Baier said. “Which is why he resolved to stand up to the aggression of Moscow and its satellites, leading to the first U.S. combat mission since the Vietnam War. Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada.”

Granada’s democratic government was overthrown and replaced by the one-party, totalitarian rule of Maurice Bishop.

“It was Bishop’s ties to Cuba and the Soviet Union that alarmed President Reagan,” said Baier in the documentary.

Reagan said the Soviet-Cuban militarization of Grenada “can only be seen as power projection into the region.”

Reagan also was concerned about the more than 600 American medical students living at St. George’s University in Grenada.

He approved an invasion of Grenada on Oct. 25, 1983, called Operation Urgent Fury, which was condemned by some internationally and in the U.S.

“The United Nations Security Council passed a resolution, vetoed by the U.S., condemning Urgent Fury as a flagrant violation of international law,” said Baier. “And some of President Reagan’s domestic critics painted him as the villain of the Western Hemisphere. In fact, seven House Democrats even drafted an impeachment resolution.”

“I must say that the support of the American government and people at the time after the intervention in Grenada, that was  quite substantial,” said Keith Mitchell, who initially supported Grenada’s Marxist revolution but quickly became disillusioned with it.

Today, Mitchell is the prime minister of Grenada.

“We’ve seen a tremendous transformation in the quality of life of the people since [Operation Urgent Fury],” he said.

“Nothing beats freedom. Freedom is fundamental.”

RUSH: Our buddies at the Media Research Center went back to their archives and they dragged up (or dragged out) a Good Morning America promo for a climate change special ABC was running back in 2008. Good Morning America played a promo for a special that aired that fall called Earth 2100, and I want to play for you a portion of the promo. Remember, ABC played this in 2008, 11 years ago on Good Morning America… It illustrates just how wrong and fearmongering the entire climate change, global warming (now “extreme weather”) crowd is.

 

PETER GLEICK: (dramatic music) In 2015, we’ve still failed to address the climate problem!

JOHN HOLDREN: We’re going to see more floods, more droughts, more (fire noise) wildfires!

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: (channel change sound effect) Flames cover hundreds of square miles.

MAN 1: (storm b-roll noise) We expect more intense hurricanes!

MAN 2: Well, how warm is it going to get? How much will sea level rise? We don’t really know where the end is.

MAN 3: (channel change sound effect) Temperatures have hit dangerous levels.

MAN 4: (channel change sound effect) Agricultural production’s dropping because temperatures are rising!

HEIDI CULLEN: (images of hungry people) There’s about one billion people who are malnourished. That number just continually grows!

TEENAGE BOY: (prediction of the future) It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.

MAN 5: (prediction of the future) Gas has reached over $9 a gallon!

MAN 6: I’m scared (bleep) right now. But I have to get this out.

RUSH: It was a bunch of young people in this ad. They were predicting that by 2015 — four years ago — milk would be 13 bucks a gallon, gasoline over $9 a gallon. The video effects show Manhattan half underwater.

They show very little of Miami left. This was gonna happen by 2015, and this was just a promo for a special that was to run and did run in the fall of 2008 called Earth 2100 — and it’s a good catch, because it illustrates just how wrong and fearmongering the entire climate change, global warming (now “extreme weather”) crowd is.
