Here’s a quick review of where everything stands. The President comes out of the mid-terms losing the possibility of getting things easily through the Congress because of the Democrat capture of the House. But he gains a reliable Senate majority for appointments to the Supreme Court Bench and the Cabinet. Having disposed of Jeff Sessions and seeing the Mueller investigation blind-sided by a Manafort defection on his plea bargain it looks like the President is maneuvering to a place where he can deal with Mueller. His temporary appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Attorney General is angering the Progressives so it must be a good move. The strong stand the President is taking at the southern border is the right move and I hope he holds firm on that front. It will win him support and help make clear that a wall at the border is a necessity. It might even force the Democrats in the House to support funding out of fear of losing re-election in 2020.
The economy continues to move forward and unless you have all your money in the stock market (which is finally seeing a long overdue correction) this will be a very Merry Christmas.
The bad publicity and federal investigations examining anti-conservative deplatforming in the social media and on-line circles hasn’t materially helped our side very much yet. But the comments by the President and other government leaders have had some effect on Silicon Valley and if there is more than just threat associated with this talk maybe we can see some pushback. It would be nice if paypal and the other fund transfer vendors are slapped down and forced to play nice.
And finally, the continuing awakening of Americans to the reality of the assault on their way of life and even their identity is moving apace and is having a powerful effect on attitudes and actions. Many people have gone from mindlessly following the proclamations of the left-wing media to seeing for themselves who is on their side and who is selling them out to the progressives. This doesn’t involve the Millenials unfortunately, they are pretty much hopelessly in thrall to the Narrative and will continue to be the most loyal proponents of the Progressive path. But I think it’s apparent that older folk will have to help steer the next generation (Gen Z?) into a better mode of thinking. That is something I have thinking about myself. Hopefully other are too.
All in all, we go into December in a better place than we were last year and with a clear path to improving things on all fronts. It still remains for President Trump to resolve the Mueller situation. But he seems much better suited than I to decide how that should be done. And he needs to get his Justice Department working on bringing relief to all of us suffering at the hands of Progressive tech barons and lower court judges who attack conservatives whenever they can. And I think he will. So, paint me optimistic and here we are at the quick sprint to Christmas and New Year. Ho, ho, ho.
