Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Most righteous walkout

Boss move.

When Trump tries to engineer a revamped trade deal with Mexico and Canada, he knows that each side will negotiate to achieve its respective goals. Once the deal is signed by all parties, the inference is that everyone sees a path to achieving many or at least some of those respective goals. Going forward, each side has motivation to cooperate productively. Certainly there will be disappointments on some or all sides that certain hoped-for goals will not be achieved, but they will proceed to obtain at least the meaningful benefits for which they successfully have bargained.

By contrast, when dealing with Democrats driven by an insane desire to impeach Trump or “at least” to destroy him personally — to ferret through his personal taxes, to go after his family and associates, to concoct one hoax after another aimed at bringing down his very reputation and raising preposterous specters regarding treasonous collusion with enemies or engaging in “cover-ups” — there is no point in his proceeding with them. No matter what is agreed, they ultimately will sabotage him and the agreement. For example, if an infrastructure agreement is reached, and subsequent polls reflect that voters are pleased with the results and credit the President for moving that infrastructure agenda forward, then Democrats will turn around mid-way and sabotage the agreements. Any person who ever has been in a real world situation like this in the private sphere has seen this done.

President Trump is not facing “Congressional Oversight.” Rather, he is enduring Congressional Torture. He was investigated for two years by a high-powered, unrestrained team of prosecutor sharks thirsting for blood, with an unlimited budget to feed their every whim, and they came up with nothing. In a reasonable world, that would be the end of the collusion fantasy. You hit him with your best shot — like the mental case who recently kickedArnold Schwarzenegger in the back — and you accomplished nothing. That investigation was a colossal waste — of time, of money, of national civility — and there is no further oversight needed on that front. So this is not about “Congressional Oversight.”

From Day One, Maxine Waters has been chanting “Impeach 45!” Now that she incomprehensibly sits as the chair of the House Banking Committee, with a gang of confederates alongside her including Rashida Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Al Impeachment Green, she gets to move forward on trying to drive Trump out of office. So it is with every other House committee. They are not doing “oversight,” and they are not accomplishing anything. Rather, they are on a vendetta against a guy who did not wrong any of them. He certainly cannot work with such people.

With an economy blazing, yet with inflation modest, the “wisdom of the American People” proved itself once again in 2018 to be a Henny Youngman joke: an old, old, quick one-liner. Instead of allowing the Trump Administration to carry its program to conclusion, the voters spiked the tires and jammed the cylinders. They gave the Democrats a majority in one chamber, electing a maniacal House that has no agenda but to destroy Trump.

The Demonrats aren’t entirely stupid at that: they figure if they can hinder, smear, and hamstring Trump badly enough, the crippling ineffectualness they themselves inflicted on him can then be used as a weapon against him in 2020. Thus can the Swamp status quo ante be restored, its Deep State support systems preserved, and the ruling PTB regain their eternal throne. As a bonus, future pretenders to it will have been taught a valuable cautionary lesson: don’t fuck with us, at your own peril.

As detestable, swinishly corrupt, and seemingly intractable as the whole DC circle jerk is, no one should ever expect any different from its enthusiastically parasitic participants. The truly depressing part is where the blame for the Democrat-Socialists’ incomprehensible 2018 resurrection must be placed:

It is the most amazing thing to watch. Iran is enriching uranium. North Korea is rumbling. China is strong-arming us economically, waiting to see who blinks first. Yet in Washington all House Democrat majority eyes are fixated on getting Trump’s taxes. The 2020 Presidential campaign already has begun. Debates are around the corner. Primaries soon thereafter. All focus is moving to 2020, with the Democrat House having accomplished nothing and on a collision course to produce nothing but more subpoenas.

If this is what American “swing voters” want, then they may revel in their “wisdom.” They had a situation that was almost too good to be true. Obama mockingly had sneered that it would take a “magic wand” to achieve such results. Yet the maniacal Democrat House has stopped all progress. In an environment of Congressional abuse, the frenzied Democrats are like a rabid dog unable to focus on anything other than chasing its tail. Healthcare coverage is not being improved. Infrastructure will not be addressed. Forget about fixing the border emergency.

Meanwhile, the Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians, Russians, even the Europeans and others, cannot be blamed for thumbing their noses at the United States as they watch an American government in paralysis while utter fools issue subpoenas and demand a man’s back taxes that have absolutely no bearing on his job performance as President since January 2017. The world’s most evil dictatorships — the ones that threaten us globally, militarily, economically — have absolutely no reason to be responsive to a Trump Administration that they see handcuffed within, in peril of being ousted in eighteen months. These dictators know that they themselves will remain in power, will face no such nonsense from within, and can wait out the worst flaws in American democracy as they almost always do. This is the mess created by the “wisdom of the American people.”

I’m just fine with American liberal stupes getting the government they want—good and hard, as much of it as they can stomach, force-fed them until they puke on it. What I don’t like is saner, more intelligent folks having it crammed down their throats into the bargain.

The 2018 elections were exactly what I said they were at the time: a no-shit, full-on disaster. It’s surely one that will be costing us all for a long time, in all kinds of ways. Maybe this time we’ll learn.
