Good Riddance to the Democratic Party
No matter what happens between now and the Democratic Nominating Convention in Milwaukee, the reeling Democratic Party is going to be further torn apart by the Bernie-Bloomberg war. (I’m assuming that you, like me, don’t take Elizabeth Warren, Tom Steyer, Mayor Pete, or Amy Klobuchar seriously, and that you realize Sleepy Joe is one gaffe away from cremation.)
If Bernie wins the nomination, the 2020 election will be over before it starts. As I said about Hillary a year before the 2016 election, Bernie’s chances of becoming president are zero. If Democrats can sell enough young people on becoming communist activists in the coming years, a socialist/communist might be in a position to win the White House somewhere down the road, but today there is no possibility of that happening.
On the other hand, if Mini Mike wins the Democratic nomination, all hell will break loose in the Democratic Party and huge numbers of Bernie supporters will refuse to vote for Bloomberg. It’s a no-win situation for the Dirty Dems, and they had no chance of beating Donald Trump to begin with. As I said a year ago, the Democrats seem intent on forfeiting the election.
Did the Attorney General really push back on Trump?
The Dirty Dems are accusing Bill Barr of colluding with President Trump by appearing to push back on the president’s tweets. Perhaps, but we’ll never know for sure.
If, however, Barr acted on his own when he complained that the president’s tweets made it impossible for him to do his job, then I agree with Mark Steyn that the attorney general should focus on cleaning out the rot at the DOJ and FBI, not on Trump expressing his opinions on Twitter.
William Barr is on a trajectory to become either one of the biggest heroes in American history or the most hated American since Benedict Arnold. People are getting nervous now that FBI pipsqueak Andrew McCabe got another pass on being prosecuted, so it’s time for the attorney general to start producing results.
Gratuitous three-to-six months sentences will not be acceptable. Criminals like Comey, Brennan, Clapper, and McCabe, who orchestrated an elaborate coup to overthrow a sitting president, need to be put away for 20-40 years.
Yes, you can include Barack Obama and Hillary in that mix as well, but it’s probably wishful thinking.
Why pick on poor Hunter?
Why is everyone so adamant about going after Hunter Biden? Sure, he’s a pathetic case, but he’s a private citizen who simply accepted his daddy’s graft. The guy who committed serious felonies by selling favors to foreign governments and oligarchs is Joe Biden, and he’s been doing it for decades.
Between his son, son-in-law, two brothers, and sister, we’re talking about tens of millions of dollars at a minimum, possibly hundreds of millions. I have an uneasy feeling that after Biden drops out of the presidential race, he will be allowed to slip into the shadows like Tom Daschle and Chris Dodd and enjoy the millions of dollars he got for selling out the United States.
Will impeachment be used as a political tool by future House majorities?
When people say that going forward impeachment will be used as a political tool by both parties, they are wrong. Republicans would never have the courage (or dishonesty) to try to impeach a Democratic president without sufficient grounds. Democrats, however, will have no qualms about impeaching future Republican presidents for the crime of carrying out their constitutional duties. Weak-kneed, unprincipled Republicans will make it possible.
Donald Trump and the Popular Vote
Donald Trump will win the popular vote in November, and probably pick up Minnesota, New Hampshire, and New Mexico. The GOP will gain as many as 35 House seats and probably pick up two seats in the Senate by ousting Doug Jones in Alabama and Gary Peters in Michigan.
The idea that Republicans have enjoyed a 53-47 seat advantage in the Senate is a myth. Thanks to Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Malevolent Mitt, the reality is that it’s been a 50-50 Senate through Trump’s first term, with Trump haters like Ben Sasse, Marco Rubio, and Mitch McConnell always ready to jump ship if they sense Trump is vulnerable.
