Well, the week has been action packed. The Climate Nuts are panicking the children and the feeble minded with their Children’s Crusade. The President humorously mocked the sixteen-year-old climate activist who has been screeching at her supporters all week. Very funny indeed.
Now Nancy Pelosi and President Trump are sparring over the Ukraine and its investigation of Biden and his son. Pelosi has begun a formal Impeachment proceeding and all the usual suspects are screaming that treason has been committed and heads will roll. Of course, the fact that it was Biden and his son that were shaking down the Ukrainians under Obama’s regime is ignored.
And just in case that isn’t enough the British Supreme Court has declared the Prime Minister’s suspension of Parliament illegal.
Interestingly enough Rasmussen shows the President’s approval rating at its highest point in two years (52%).
Well, what does all this mean? Just that President Trump and his enemies are locked in the death struggle that they’ve had going on for the last four years. But the difference is he’s eliminated some of the really weak links in his team. If Jeff Sessions were still Attorney General by now, he would have recused himself in favor of Rod Rosenstein and a new special prosecutor would be drip-dripping stories to the New York Times and Rachel Maddow would be starting her death watch for the Trump Administration again.
But not this time. Instead, the FBI is investigating the Biden Ukraine scandal and even I am starting to have doubts about Creepy Uncle Joe making it to the convention. Lately Fauxcahantas has overtaken Bernie in the polls and has even passed Biden in the Iowa poll. The youth contingent of the progressives is happy to see that an old white guy won’t be the candidate but the party leaders are worried that the Fake Indian won’t get the enthusiastic support of the black community. In particular, black women haven’t really embraced Warren. This kind of uncertainty is very good for our side. It won’t give the Dems as much time to memory hole the dirt on whichever candidate gets through. And it will make it harder to recruit the Veep for the ticket. After all Creepy Joe is a strange weirdo but compared to the likes of Warren or Harris, he’s almost Santa Claus.
Many right wing pundits fear Fauxcahantas as the more formidable opponent in 2020. I will admit that she hasn’t forgotten what state she’s in or mixed up which decade things happened like Plugs Biden has, but she’s a deeply unlikeable woman whose only natural constituency is middle aged professional white women. Men find her voice comparable to fingernails screeching over a chalk board. In other words, sort of like Hillary Clinton.
Also, she has publicly stated that she supports Medicaid for all, free healthcare for illegal aliens and the ludicrously expensive and hopelessly ineffective Green New Deal. I think even Jeb Bush could manage to attack her over those awful policies. But it won’t be Jeb at the debates it will be the Man Who Buried Hillary. The only real question is whether he calls her Liarwatha during his opening statement or during the first round of questions.
So far this has been a very interesting week. Many people feel that President Trump intentionally initiated this Ukraine dust-up to force Pelosi to begin impeachment. At this point, that seems possible. The consensus is that Pelosi wanted to save an impeachment drama for closer to the election to hurt the President’s election chances. But letting the Ukraine investigate Biden’s son would throw a cloud over the current leading candidate’s campaign and breed fear, uncertainty and depression for the Dems. It’s sort of a lose/lose situation for the Dems. There is the chance that forcing the country to go through an impeachment process this close to the election and for no good reason could throw the House of Representatives to the Republicans next year and strengthen President Trump’s hand immeasurably.
And finally getting back to the Brexit situation it remains to be seen if Boris Johnson will be willing to allow a Hard Brexit to occur by refusing to request an extension from the EU. If that occurs, he could possibly be charged with a crime. This really is an amazing situation. It will take guts to do it but if he does it might make him the most popular Prime Minister since Winston Churchill.
Stay tuned. Things seem to be heating up.
