Is This Really It?

Don’t the Democrats have more than this for their Impeachment Circus?  Can they keep this going for more than a week?  If not, I think they’re going to be upstaged by whatever balloon mishaps occur during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  In the classic Seinfeld episode, I believe it was Woody the Woodpecker who suffered a puncture wound and deflated on top of Elaine’s boss Mr Pitt.  I’m sure at this point Woody has been retired in favor of some kind of trans-gender super hero but either way Pelosi et alia are going to have to come up with some kind of show stopper.  Perhaps they can perform a séance and have the ghost of Jeffrey Epstein accuse President Trump of strangling him in his New York jail cell.

Honestly, the only thing I can guess is that the DNC is so desperate for Creepy Uncle Joe to be the candidate that they had to do something crazy like this to stop the investigation into Hunter’s pathetic graft expedition in the Ukraine.  And I don’t see how this helps.  If there is anyone on the planet at this point unaware that Joe used his position to force a foreign government to cancel an investigation of his son’s shakedown activities it could only be among coma victims.

The good thing about this feckless farce is that it gives the Republicans the perfect center piece around which to campaign against them.  If they had any wit about them at all, they would seize on this as the embodiment of an infantile and malign force that possesses no positive qualities and is only meant to act as a brake (resistance) to an actual agenda.  Pushing for a border wall in light of the Cartels’ victory over the Mexican Army would be a winning strategy.

But I have little if any faith in the Republicans at this point.  They are only slightly less useless than Pelosi and her crew.  At the rate that the Republicans are retiring from the House it may soon be a strictly Democrat establishment.  It’s a pity.  It seems as if President Trump will be forced to do the whole thing by himself.

Well I’m actually very busy getting work done so that I can have some time off around Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I’m impatiently waiting on Horowitz’s report and the subsequent indictments by Barr’s staff but I haven’t the patience or interest in reading any of the half-witted descriptions by the desperate MSM propagandists of the side show that Schiff and Pelosi are attempting to sell.

So, unless Pelosi is going to do a geriatric strip tease or Schiff is prepared to perform an Aztec sacrificial slaughter on the steps of the Capitol, I’m going to have to decline paying any further notice to this sad non-spectacle.

But bring on the next crazy show by all means.  This one isn’t funny enough.  In fact, I think I’ll re-watch the Seinfeld episode.  Watching Mr. Pitt struggling with the deflating Woody the Woodpecker balloon was way funnier than this.  Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.

 

 

Impeachment: The Last Bullet in the Gun

The Impeachment of the President of the United States was an unheard-of idea for most of the first century of the country’s existence.  It took the Civil War and its partisan aftermath to produce the first impeachment and even then, President Andrew Johnson was acquitted.  When over a hundred years later Richard Nixon was threatened with impeachment, he became the first president to resign his office rather than subject the nation to such a trauma.  But twenty-five years later the standards of the country had eroded sufficiently that not only did Bill Clinton refuse to resign but he was actually acquitted of perjury and obstruction charges despite documentary and physical evidence to the contrary.  Now twenty years of polarization past that point it seems probable that a politically motivated impeachment charge by the Democrats against a popular Republican president might actually be a net positive for the president.

For the whole period of Donald Trump’s presidency and even before his inauguration, various Democrat officials and almost all of the Media have bandied about the impeachment threat.  When the Mueller investigation collapsed there was a short respite when even the Democrat leaders admitted that impeachment was no longer an option.

But with the recent Ukraine events Nancy Pelosi was hounded by the younger members of the Democrat caucus to announce that she has initiated a formal impeachment action.  Wow, that sounds serious!  But wait.  “She cannot unilaterally decide we’re in an impeachment inquiry.  What she said today makes no difference about what’s been going on,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said after Pelosi’s announcement.”  In other words, in order for an actual impeachment investigation to be started the full House has to vote on and approve it and Pelosi has refused to bring one to the floor.   So, what is actually going on here?

Despite what AOC’s Goon Squad would have you believe, impeaching President Trump on spurious charges would most likely lose Nancy Pelosi the House Democrat Majority and her Speaker’s chair after the 2020 election.  And Pelosi knows that.  In addition, the chance of the Senate convicting the President is effectively zero.  Twenty republican senators would have to join the democrats for the necessary two thirds majority and that’s even assuming that senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia would vote for something so unpopular with their constituencies.  Then, what is the strategy here?

My interpretation of the situation is that Democrats have to appear to be holding the President accountable for investigating members of the Obama administration that are known to have been involved in influence peddling.  That includes, at least, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.  Actually, allowing an investigation of these sacred cows of the Democrat establishment risks exposing levels of corruption that would certainly upend the American political order.

But they are trying to use the threat of impeachment only.  Because once they actually impeach him and he is acquitted by the Senate then Congress is basically a spent force.  They will have done their worst and the last bullet will have been fired.  At that point his continued existence as president will be a constant reminder to them and the rest of the country of their impotence.  All of their posturing and rhetoric will seem hollow and ridiculous.  And ridiculous is a very bad thing for influence peddlers.

What is difficult for me to determine is exactly what the President’s strategy is here.  Is he trying to force an impeachment or is it just collateral to his desire to punish the cabal that tried to overturn his election?  I think either one of those two scenarios is possible.  Personally, I hope he is working to expose the criminal conspiracy that exists against him.  Nothing would make me happier than hearing that Comey, McCabe, Brennan and Clapper were indicted and awaiting trial for treason.  The damage these people have done to the country is hard to overestimate.

But is it possible that President Trump is trying to get himself impeached?  It seems, at first glance, unthinkable.  Why would a president risk removal from office no matter how unlikely?  And if running for re-election wouldn’t he worry that the impeachment stigma would destroy his electability?  Maybe not.

The United States has become almost completely polarized.  The Left/Right divide has become a chasm both wide and deep.  Like the opposite sides of the Grand Canyon each can see the other from a vast distance with the space between a desolate no-man’s land.  So, impeachment will only serve to seal the fate of any Democrats still serving office in Red areas of the country and alternatively for Republicans in Blue areas.  It will stoke the resentment of partisans on both sides of the divide and fit in with each side’s narrative.  But being acquitted by the Senate will uplift the spirits of the Right and depress those of the Left.  In that sense it would be a net positive for the President’s side and may have been calculated by the political experts as a winning strategy.  It seems bizarre but I concede it is possible.

How does one decide which of these two situations is the actual one?  You probably can’t do it definitively but I guess one sign would be whether President Trump provides further excuses for the House to investigate him.  Let’s say he calls up the British Prime Minister and asks for him to investigate any links between the Clinton campaign and the Steele Dossier.  With the almost endless leaks coming out of the intelligence agencies we’d be hearing about it before the phone call ended.  Though, even that would still leave open the possibility that the President was more interested in getting to the bottom of the coup.  But at the very least it would mean that he was unworried about impeachment.

And honestly it appears that there is no reason to fear impeachment any more.  Not even the Media will pretend there is any objectivity toward President Trump.  In fact, they are proud to say they are abandoning evenhandedness to do whatever it takes to destroy his presidency.  So, there is no danger of any of the President’s voters believing anything the Media or the Democrats say.

So here we are in the brave new world where a Republican President isn’t afraid of impeachment but the Democrat Speaker of the House is.  Who knows, maybe Pelosi will back down sometime in the next few weeks.  I’m no longer surprised by anything that happens in our politics.  The Democrats stopped following the rules half a century ago and we finally have a man who can fight fire with fire.  This wild ride that we’ve been on since Donald Trump entered the political arena a few years ago promises to upend all the remaining stupidities that the hapless Republican establishment figures put up with in the past.  Here’s hoping that in 2021 President Trump has a reliable Republican congress, a swamp drained of all Deep State saboteurs and a robustly conservative Supreme Court to move us forward into a more hopeful future.

 

 

Could President Trump Alter the Outcome of the Democrat Primary?

President Trump appears to me to be forcing Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat candidates for president to line up behind the Four Horsefaces of the Apocalypse.  Opinions differ as to how intentional are the rhetorical attacks that President Trump initiates on Twitter.  I would have to say that this one is extremely deliberate.  Nancy Pelosi was actively reining in these bomb throwers just to protect herself and the rest of the 2020 candidates from being tarred with the same crazy brush that these females decorate themselves with.  But once he laid on the “go back to your rathole country,” nice and thick Nancy and all the other democrat clowns were backed into a corner and had to embrace the four harridans.

This is brilliant.  These harpies are on record with so much anti-American venom that even a child will be able to put together a greatest hits reel for the Republican 2020 campaigns.  Who knows?  It might even be possible to unseat a few of these psychos.  But regardless, what it might really do is energize the democrat primary voters to throw poor old Creepy Uncle Joe under the bus and nominate Kamala Harris or even (be still my beating heart) Cory Booker!  Can you imagine Spartacus up there on the stage with President Trump at the debates?  It’s all Booker can do now to remember to put his pants on.  He’ll probably bolt if he gets too flustered.

All along I’ve maintained that the power brokers in the DNC will put their thumbs on the scale and throw the nomination to Biden.  But what if Trump pushes the Dems to a place much farther along in their intersectional identity politics calculus?  What if his insults catalyze the anti-white position into a mandate?  Then Bernie, Biden, Buttigieg and even Warren become personae non gratae.  Oh, wouldn’t that be lovely?

It is my contention that Barack Obama’s obvious anti-white bias and the pathetic economic policies of his administration have inoculated America from feeling racist for voting against a black candidate.  That and the drum beat of woke sentiment has finally started to wise up Americans to the Left’s white guilt playbook.  That’s why I think a Harris or Booker candidacy would be a boon to President Trump and all of us.  If Harris gets blown out in a landslide it would put to rest the whole demographics is destiny hustle.  As many on the Dissident Right have pointed out the Coalition of the Entitled don’t really like each other all that well.  In fact, the only thing they dislike more than each other is normal white men.  So, if you pick a candidate that doesn’t belong to the particular sliver of the coalition that is up for grabs (Hispanics for instance) then chances are you could be out of luck on Election Day if the Republican does a good job of selling his record or platform.  And if some of those slivers, like white women and Hispanic traditionalists, start thinking that their interests actually align better with the Republicans than with the America-hating Squad then things could get very interesting.

So, my thesis is that President Trump is jabbing at “the Squad” in order to drive the Democrats to solidarity around them.  His intent is to associate the Democrats with these America-hating crazy women and make them less electable.  And possibly he would like to radicalize the Democrat primary electorate to nominate a sure loser like Harris or Booker.  Now, have I changed my mind about the inevitability of Biden?  Not yet.  These things blow over and Biden really is the only dwarf with even a snowball’s chance in Hell in 2020.  I’ll recalibrate based on whether President Trump’s attacks on the Horsefaces continue or abate.  Either way I’m really enjoying this extended election season and I anticipate a bumper crop of election night Democrat caterwauls.

Trump vs. The State of the Union – Part 1  Note: this is a link to the first installment of this story.

 

Dramatis Personae:

President Trump (PT)

Sargeant at Arms (SAA)

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (PR)

Toffee Bredwell – An upper class British journalist from the BBC (TB)

Newt Gingrich (NG)

Melania Trump (MT)

 

Scene 1: US Capitol Building, 8:45 pm, directly before the State of the Union Address

 

TB – Good evening everyone and welcome to the BBC coverage of the American Presidential State of the Union Address.  I’m your reporter Toffee Bredwell and with me here is former Speaker of the American House of Representatives, the Honorable Newton Gingrich.  Welcome Mr. Speaker or may I call you Newt?

NG – Certainly Toffee, all my friends call me Newt.

TB – Thanks.  Now as a former Speaker of the House you are intimately familiar with the protocol, let’s call it the nuts and bolts of this event.  Can you share a little insight with our listeners about how this evening will progress?

NG – Well, normally the members of the administration and the Supreme Court will be announced by the Deputy Sergeant at Arms and when The President arrives at the Chamber door the Sergeant at Arms announces him to the Speaker.  This is followed by a long walk filled with cheers and handshaking and embraces and when the President reaches the Rostrum the Speaker announces him to the Congress and after another lengthy round of applause the President begins his address.  And during the address depending on the particular subject and the party of each of the attendees there could be applause, stony silence or recently even some booing.  In fact, during one of then President Obama’s addresses, a Congressman shouted out “You lie!”

TB – Oh dear, how embarrassing.  Do you expect we’ll experience any such breaches of civility tonight?

NG – Well Toffee, unless I miss my guess, I think we might see something a little more exciting tonight.  Let’s just hope there won’t be any fisticuffs.

TB – Quite.  So, I can see that the Sergeant at Arms is positioning himself so let’s shift over to the floor microphone.

SAA – Mister Speaker, the President of the United States!

TB – Well Mr. Speaker, you weren’t exaggerating.  What a terrific up swelling of applause and ovation for this President.  These congresspersons certainly love this President.

NG – Oh, far from it, Toffee.  Most of these people despise Donald Trump but he’s just initiated a gigantic uptick in economic growth.  Something that hasn’t been seen since Ronald Reagan.  As long as he’s the stronger horse they’ll applaud.  If things turn sour the knives will quickly come out.

TB – Ah, it’s good to see politics are the same everywhere.  Well, it looks like Speaker Ryan is about to introduce the President to Congress.  Let’s go to the Rostrum microphone and we’ll return after the address to review the high points.

PR – Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.

(Long and loud applause.)

PT – Thank you Mr. Speaker.  Thank you, Paul.  It feels strange to be thanking you Paul.  Up until the tax overhaul bill I was ready to write you off as a total loss.  I was going to have you primaried by some kind of radical and who knows maybe you wouldn’t have made it.  But now I’m almost fond of you.  You’re still a spineless weasel but you’re my spineless weasel, so you’ve got that going for you which is nice.  And Mitch McConnell, what can I say?  You’re like some kind of petrified fossil that exists outside of the world we live in.  It doesn’t seem possible that anything as weird as you could still exist but you do.  If we could replace you with an animatronic character like a talking walrus or porcupine I believe it would increase our popularity with the voters but anyway I can’t be too mad at you either because of the tax bill.

Now, you Democrats are a different story.  You all are without a doubt the lowest form of pond scum to ever successfully masquerade as human beings.  Every time I think you’ve hit the ethical bottom you somehow dig a little deeper and go even lower.  Let’s take for instance Dick Durbin.  His lying double-crossing behavior at the DACA meeting has convinced me that if I saw Dick Durbin and a Great White Shark in the waters off of Mar a Lago I’d immediately warn … the shark!  And don’t get me started on Pelosi and Schumer.  The way people are leaving California and New York, pretty soon their own votes will be sufficient to guarantee their re-elections.  That’s right Cryin’ Chuck, the Statue of Liberty is crying over your lousy party’s inept governing of both the City and State of New York.

But it’s not all bad, I want to congratulate Al Franken for striking out for women’s rights.  He harassed enough women to ensure that a woman would replace him.  Quite a tribute.  And I’d also like to congratulate Maxine Waters for being so crazy that she now makes Rosie O’Donnell seem sane in comparison.  When Maxine said she wasn’t a Millennial but used to be I think she meant that she was born in 1000 AD.  That would explain her looks and the fact that she mostly speaks gibberish.  Back then English really hadn’t been invented yet so everyone sounded like she does.  And I know I shouldn’t make fun of a woman’s looks but honestly Maxine is so ugly she makes Pelosi and Hillary look decent by comparison.

And I’d like to thank the press for being so dishonest.  By lying at every turn you’ve made my job so much easier.  At this point I can almost guarantee that anything I say will be disputed by you folks in such ridiculous terms that even the least intelligent person will be able to tell you’re lying.  You’ve become an exaggerated parody of yourselves.  Well done and congratulations for ensuring the long tem demise of your own jobs.

And I’d like to thank all those federal judges both at the Circuit and Supreme Court level who keep usurping the constitutional power of elected officials.  You only make it easier for me to get the electorate to understand why I need to replace as many of you as I possibly can.

I’m going to take a short break while the Secret Service frog marches the Secret Society of Comey, McCabe, Strozk and Mueller down the center aisle on their way to the hoosegow but before I do I’d just like to give a shout out to one of our guests in the gallery.  I’d like to  welcome Miss Stormy Daniels coming and for confirming that I have not had sex with her.  But if I had she knows it would be the best sex she’s ever had and that my hands are ample and highly capable.

MT – Kurba!

PT – And Melania welcomes you too.  Trump out.

(Returning to the BBC broadcast location)

NG – Hello and welcome back BBC listeners.  This is former Speaker Newt Gingrich again.  Unfortunately, Toffie Bredwell has passed out.  Apparently kurba is Slovenian for whore and that was just too much for Toffie.  Stay tuned and I’m sure he’ll revive before the President continues on with the substantive portion of his speech.  But first a word from our sponsor.
