The Democrats Are Betting Their Future on a Grudge
Well, the Democrats are doing it again! This week, Nancy Pelosi suggested that instead of being impeached, the President should go to prison. In her desperate fight to save her own power against the upstart new members of Congress and the terrified old guard, Pelosi made a compromise with the devil. She knows that if the Democrats opt for impeachment, they are likely to lose catastrophically in the 2020 elections. And it will be a long recovery – if recovery ever comes. So she took a cheap shot at the President and said she would like to see him in prison.
The President, as we know, suffers fools badly, and he answered her bluntly. “Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas.” That’s what Trump tweeted as he flew home on Air Force One after his successful week-long trip to Europe to observe the 75th anniversary of D-Day in a ceremony overlooking Omaha Beach.
“Nervous Nancy & Dems are getting Zero work done in Congress,” he continued, “and have no intention of doing anything other [than] going on a fishing expedition to see if they can find anything on me – both illegal & unprecedented in U.S. history.”
Well, according to one source, Congress has passed 50 bills, most of which will never see the light of day, since they are mostly partisan, and won’t have a chance of passage in the Republican-held Senate.
The path that the Democrats seem to be going down is dictated by the extent to which they have succumbed to the worst forms of Trump Derangement Syndrome, which apparently has overwhelmed them to the point of sheer lunacy. They have, it seems, become totally unhinged.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example, the new darling of the crazy far-left now demands that we Americans pay the freight for her overboard insane Green New Deal with its $100 trillion price tag. That’s five times our national debt. And this while China continues to pollute so badly that the air there is nearly unbreathable and the water is undrinkable.
Yet we, who contribute just 15% of the world’s carbon pollution (as compared to China’s 30%), are being told that America must bear the cost of repairing the damage to the world’s resources. Ocasio-Cortez insists that we must cut our carbon emissions by 30% in ten years. And New York City’s Mayor De-Blasio intends to lower the city’s carbon emissions by 40% in the same time period, by ordering all the steel and glass buildings in Manhattan to get covered up. And at the cost of $100 billion. And former Mayor Michael Bloomberg has pledged half a billion dollars to close down all coal plants in the country in the same ten years.
Have they all gone mad? I’m not here to argue about climate change, but only to point out that the world just doesn’t work that way. And changing climate has been with us for eons. We had an ice age before we had temperate zones. Whole populations of living beings were wiped out and powerful ecological shifts occurred as the result of dramatic climate change long before we had carbon emissions and plastic bottles.
To be sure, we have created quite a mess here, and we need to clean it up. But to be told we need to take responsibility for the rest of the world’s irresponsibility is – well, irresponsible. And dumb.
And then there‘s the never-ending search for something criminal in President Trump’s past. And they are dredging up everything they can to find it. Their fair-haired boy, Robert Mueller, is now in the doghouse because his team of investigators found nothing in a two-year, $35 million search through the garbage of fabricated reports and lying testimony.
Now they are gunning for Attorney General William Barr, and plan, they say, to cite him for contempt of Congress. Whew! Busy, busy!
So how will this all play out in November 2020? It’s hard to tell, but I would warn the crazies in the Democrat party to watch out. The American people are getting fed up, and defections are likely to grow rapidly.
Oh, and by the way, the Democrats in Congress think that they have done such a great job, that they now want to give themselves a $4,500 annual raise across the board.
So if you continue to ignore reality, and if you continue to depend on inaccurate polls, you’ll never see how disenchanted Americans really are with you, because the numbers are frequently skewed by things like the careful choice of respondents and the slanted nature of the questions. And many people won’t tell the truth to pollsters.
But hey, you Democrats, keep at it, if you must. The grudge you are holding against the President may be the instrument of your own undoing. And America may well have, as a direct result, another four years of Donald Trump in the White House, plus a Republican House and Senate in 2020.
