Pelosi Spends Last Dime While Trump Campaigns for Re-Election

All good movies start with something called a log line. That’s the single sentence encapsulation of the story arc that captures the essence of the film.
This is a historic day for America. Under the leadership of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, the United States Congress voted to forward two articles of impeachment to the US Senate for trial accusing President Donald Trump of an abuse of power and obstructing Congress.
The act is the culmination of over three years of resistance to the outsider President who has spent his entire term to date embroiled in a struggle for power against a deeply embedded Washington D.C. establishment culture.
This point in the plot marks the end of the line for Pelosi’s influence on events. From this point on, matters are under the control of the Republican controlled Senate, a body the United States Constitution deliberately designed to be a very different universe from the raucous turmoil of the House.

My question is who wins the academy award here? The redeemed Joker or the two curmudgeons from the Muppet Show?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has displayed little patience for what has taken place in the House. He branded it “incoherent” the morning after. Pelosi, on her part, seems not sure that the previous nights romp was a good idea either. Someone’s got a heck of a hangover from last night’s “Animal House”. The question in front of Speaker Pelosi is will she or will she not drag the soap opera out?
The political risks are extreme; all scenarios lead to debacle. I think Pelosi miscalculated big time. She knows it. The day after is walk of shame day. She should have disciplined her party better.
Reviewing the moment, analysts almost universally conjecture what, if anything, Speaker Pelosi accomplished by spending all the political capital she had on a symbolic token that will most likely die a quick death in the other chamber. The consensus is that, in the aftermath of the vote, it is not about “Will the Senate convict the President?” Rather, it is about how many moderate Democrats will lose their seats in the 2020 election. The larger picture of doom is, after Donald Trump is re-elected, will the Democrats even retain control of the House?
The polls are doubtful for the Democrat’s hopes. If anything, the events since Speaker Pelosi unleashed Chairmen Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler against the President have managed to turn Donald Trump into a sympathetic figure for more Americans.
The polls, if you still believe polls, say Trump has made headway with minority and moderate voters as the Democratic House has shifted further and further to the left to maintain the momentum of their “resistance”. There’s a lot of people asking that most wonderful of movie lines, “What if we’ve been fighting on the wrong side.”

Trump has been aided by a growing economy and a track record on wins on the international scene that Americans will be reluctant to give up in November to vote for a Democrat platform that would radically change the economy into a high tax, central planning, socialist design with leadership espousing servitude to a globalist agenda.

Such a thing may please party activists, media elites and academics; but it’s a very hard sell to ordinary Americans.
What does sell to ordinary Americans is job creation and “America First” nationalism on both the economic and security fronts. And in this regard, Donald Trump is clearly succeeding in delivering the bacon. That’s a reality that is getting through to the electorate despite the massive negative spin on the news being used to attack the White House’s record.
Manufactured controversy may boost Nielsen ratings, sell subscriptions, and generate click-through; but I wonder if the media will ever figure out that the circus they’ve created to themselves attempt to “influence the election” has actually been selling “Donald Trump for President 2020” for free this entire time.
That’s the real story in all of this. Everyone has been abusing their power except for Trump.
The President, on his part, has played his fiddle masterfully while the Beltway has crashed and burned. Trump starved the access of a hostile press forcing them to teeter on every Tweet that erupts from the now infamous @realdonaldtrump account. These are book ended with official letters and statements from the White House that provide plenty of fodder for media talking heads who cackle on and on about nothing. Does one really need more proof that the main purpose in life for a media outlet is to fill 86,400 seconds of dead air on a satellite uplink for each channel every day?
The “Mad About Trump” show is like the movie “Truman” where the entire world’s obsession was to watch Jim Carey’s character. You just need to change the name slightly and that’s pretty much what the mainstream media does for a living now. Everyone else like Pelosi and company are competing for best supporting actor. There are even box office flop girl squads in the film aka they who must not be named. Somebody really needs to have a talk with central casting about that. The D.C. version of “Tool Time” was better with Hope Hicks playing the part of Pamela Anderson than the dour faces of doom from the State Department. Just saying.
Pelosi’s admonition to House Democrats to be somber on the day or the vote is more theater that pegged the needle on my bullshit detector. The left of aisle contingent’s urge to party like it’s 2008 has been palpable for days. But it wouldn’t do to have everyone dress up in white again like a bunch of Storm Troopers making who knows what hand signs saluting the new Democratic First Order, with the red clad Emperor’s Guard aka Handmaids in the rafters. Ah. It’s too close to the premier of Episode IX. Pelosi would probably be sued by Mickey Mouse for copyright infringement.
Yes! I do think the DC circus did become that macabre.
The irony of the moment is that as the House was voting for impeachment, Donald Trump was at a rally campaigning for re-election. These rallies and debates are the real battlegrounds of political America in 2020. 
In this regard, the President is succeeding while his Democratic opponents struggle to even arrange venues to hold what remains of their debates. The Democratic candidates field is so weak that single-issue gun control candidates such as Mike Bloomberg who, in yet another irony, is arguably the only New Yorker with a more caustic personality than “The Donald”, are appearing on the scene because they aren’t broke like the rest of the DNC is. It’s a remake of “Rise of the One Percent”. The Dark Side always rises from just east of the Hudson River.
Always.
I’m waiting for a guy named “Snake” Plissken toting a couple of MAC-10’s in an Uber driven by Quinton McHale breaching Riker’s prison to rescue the real Jeffrey Epstein secretly being held hostage by the intelligence community to show up next. It’s the Internet. Anything is possible if you have enough “bots”.
I can’t wait for this Trivial Pursuit game of Congressional “resistance” to recede into the background.

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

We have had no side effects that we are aware of from the vaccine. Does this mean we are free from future side-effects? Should we forego any boosters? Did the vaccine destroy our natural immunity?

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”

Spreading Hate and Racial Division Since 2009

Indeed there are extremists here in this country that we need to be concerned with. They are the career politicians who stay in office for decades, an ‘extreme’ length of time for anyone to hold political office. And Barack Obama is an extremist. After all, he wants to “fundamentally transform” the United States…
