DOOR-TO-DOOR SALESMEN SOMETIMES SURVIVE A ROUGH JOB BY CONVINCING THEMSELVES THAT PEOPLE ARE DESPERATE TO BUY WHAT THEY’RE SELLING.
After receiving several “No’s”, they threaten to walk away when no one invited them to the door in the first place.
Such is the current situation in which Nancy Pelosi has put herself and the Democrat majority in the House. She continues to “threaten” to hold back the filing of two junk Articles of Impeachment the House rushed to pass before Christmas on the phony premise that Donald Trump is a threat to life as we know it. Actually, he continues to be a threat to life as they know it.
Pelosi pretends that the Republican-controlled Senate actually wants what she and the Democrats have been selling. Given her previous remarks not so long ago, we can do more than speculate that she didn’t want impeachment either.
Pelosi can’t afford to tell the truth. This is a continuation of the sham impeachment narrative itself which was designed to make it appear as though the Democrats have the upper hand. In fact, her sudden coyness about filing the Articles in the Senate shows that it was more of a Hail Mary Pass that she wishes she could recall. She knows the ball will be immediately intercepted by the Senate Republicans and Democrats will lose control of the narrative they’ve worked so hard to control until now.
In one of the most impressive speeches by an ordinarily not-very-impressive speaker, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell made it clear that a “radical faction” in the House Majority had gone off the rails. It was a stunning rebuke of Democrats in general and a civics lesson for the rest of us on the unique role of the Senate in the gravest of situations. It’s a speech I highly recommend watching. (ANP: Embedded as 1st video at the bottom of this story.
In light of that speech, it is chilling to consider what would happen if the Senate were controlled by Democrats as well. Does anyone think they would suddenly become circumspect about convicting and removing this duly-elected President on an evidence free impeachment? McConnell's remarks in part.:
‘This is by far the thinnest basis for any House-passed presidential impeachment in American history… The prosecutors are getting cold feet in front of the entire country and second-guessing whether they even want to go to trial… It will be an unprecedented constitutional crisis if the Senate agrees to set the bar this low forever.’
‘Last night House Democrats finally did what they decided to do long ago: They voted to impeach President Trump.
‘Over the last 12 weeks, House Democrats have conducted the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.
‘Now their slapdash process has concluded in the first purely partisan presidential impeachment since the wake of the Civil War. The opposition to impeachment was bipartisan. Only one part of one faction wanted this outcome.
‘The House’s conduct risks deeply damaging the institutions of American government. This particular House of Representatives has let its partisan rage at this particular President create a toxic new precedent that will echo into the future.
‘That’s what I want to discuss now: The historic degree to which House Democrats have failed to do their duty — and what it will mean for the Senate to do ours.
‘Let’s start at the beginning. Let’s start with the fact that Washington Democrats made up their minds to impeach President Trump since before he was even inaugurated
‘Here’s a reporter in April 2016. Quote, “Donald Trump isn’t even the Republican nominee yet… [but] ‘Impeachment’ is already on the lips of pundits, newspaper editorials, constitutional scholars, and even a few members of Congress."
‘On Inauguration Day 2017, this headline in the Washington Post: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.” That was day one.
‘In April 2017, three months into the presidency, a senior House Democrat said “I’m going to fight every day until he’s impeached.” That was three months in.
‘In December 2017, two years ago, Congressman Jerry Nadler was openly campaigning to be ranking member on House Judiciary specifically because he was an expert on impeachment.
‘This week wasn’t even the first time House Democrats have introduced articles of impeachment. It was the seventh time.
‘They started less than six months after the president was sworn in.
‘They tried to impeach President Trump for being impolite to the press... For being mean to professional athletes... For changing President Obama’s policy on transgender people in the military.
‘All of these things were “high crimes and misdemeanors” according to Democrats.
‘This wasn’t just a few people. Scores of Democrats voted to move forward with impeachment on three of those prior occasions.
‘So let’s be clear. The House’s vote yesterday was not some neutral judgment that Democrats came to reluctantly. It was the pre-determined end of a partisan crusade that began before President Trump was even nominated, let alone sworn in.
‘For the very first time in modern history we have seen a political faction in Congress promise from the moment a presidential election ended that they would find some way to overturn it.
‘A few months ago, Democrats’ three-year-long impeachment in search of articles found its way to the subject of Ukraine. And House Democrats embarked on the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.
WE MUST START LOOKING SOBERLY AT THE DEMOCRATS’ VIEW OF AMERICA’S PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS NOT AS COLLATERAL DAMAGE IN THEIR ZEAL TO REMOVE THIS PRESIDENT, BUT AS A LARGE PART OF THEIR ACTUAL MOTIVATION.
In preparation for Election 2020, Pelosi will settle for trying to hang the label of “Impeached President” on Trump. They have terrible candidates, no message and rely only on victim and identity politics. They desperately want power back but all they can promise is socialism and misery. They used to be able to lie about that and get away with it. Call me skeptical, but I don’t think it’ll work this time.
Republicans must recognize that the longer Democrats keep talking impeachment, the more they lose and the more Republicans win. Few have the intestinal fortitude of a Donald Trump to take the hammering with the firm knowledge that they’re winning. Trump is extraordinarily adept at playing rope-a-dope and waiting out his opponents.
It’ll be grassroots conservatives that pick up the slack. They’re the ones that brought Trump to the dance, and they know that the Democrats have nothing but are still trying to bluff their way through to November, 2020.
So, gird your loins, hitch up your britches, and forge ahead into 2020. It ought to be a wild ride.
