A Huge Mistake?
This should have been a week in which Democrats rejoiced. With Nancy Pelosi’s guidance, key figures made the final decision to go ahead with the impeachment; rumors suggest they may even float the articles of impeachment before Christmas. Why then does it feel as though something has gone horribly wrong for the opposition party?
Perhaps at the heart of this discrepancy is the fact that House Democrats are trying to frame the impeachment as a defense of the Constitution when to most Americans, it appears more an attack. As Liberty Nation’s Graham J. Noble wrote:
“Throughout the impeachment inquiries, Democrats have ad nauseam invoked the Constitution as if they are the ultimate and most faithful guardians of that sacred document. Raise the question of freedom of religion, though, or freedom of speech or the right to keep and bear arms – all guaranteed by the Constitution – and those same Democrats immediately disregard their purported passion for the nation’s founding principles.”
Reality has a bad habit of kicking them in the pants. In this same week, they were supposed to be celebrating the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency:
- 266K new jobs reported in November.
- September and October jobs figures revised upwards.
- The dollar rallies.
- Trump’s approval rating hits 52%.
What went wrong?
What to Watch For
Democrats need this process to last for as long as possible. Although signals have been made that things will start before Christmas, expect Nancy Pelosi or Adam Schiff to state that they “need more time” in order to do a thorough job.
Continuing a disastrous week, the Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden continued his Malarky Tour in grand fashion. Despite toppling Elizabeth Warren in the betting odds, and staying at least 5% ahead in most national polling, one gaffe after another seems to be marring what should otherwise be a solid campaign.
At a campaign stop in Iowa, an attendee made comments regarding Hunter Biden’s position in a Ukrainian energy company. Some have suggested that Biden over-reacted in his response.
After first calling the man a “damned liar,” the exchange descended into farce with Biden challenging the other man to not only a push-up competition, but also to a foot race, and even an IQ test. The world’s media seems determined to paint President Trump as a thin-skinned and petty man; why has Joe Biden escaped such derogatory names? Perhaps the media has such a long habit of ignoring his many gaffes and blunders, that it has become almost impossible for them to take the other track.
Liberty Nation’s Graham J. Noble wrote in his witty article this week:
“Perhaps we will discover one day that Biden was a Russian plant or that Trump himself put the candidate up to it. Other than a serious mental or physical disorder, those are the only two explanations that would rationalize Biden’s eccentricities. In the absence of such explanations, Biden’s continued status as nomination frontrunner is a testament to how far the Democratic Party has sunk.”
What to Watch For
Is Biden as much of a liability as people think? As Elizabeth Warren falls behind, and Pete Buttigieg finds himself embroiled in one race issue after another, we can expect two things to happen. First, Biden will continue to poll very well. The second, handlers in the Democrat Party will be doing all they can to keep him in line and on script.
Washington Whispers & Other Juicy Tidbits
Be on the lookout for:
- The Democrat Party will be falling over itself to tout it’s race-credentials. A lot of inner -searching took place after Kamala Harris dropped out over why there are no none-white people as top contenders. Poor Cory Booker, poor Andrew Yang, poor Tulsi Gabbard – apparently even their own party had dismissed them.
- With Trump hitting 52% approval ratings this week and the U.S. dollar climbing high, we may see a more upbeat president ready to take on the House over the impeachment matter.
