Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
A look ahead to 2019. – Everybody does retrospectives this time of year. I hate retrospectives – I’ve always preferred to look ahead. It’s just my nature – I have no idea why. So, let’s spend this time looking ahead to some of what we are likely to see in the political realm during 2019.
It’ll be a yuuuuuuge year for confirming judges. – Mitch McConnell may not be on board with President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda – witness his utter inaction over the holidays during the ongoing “government shutdown” – but he does like to confirm judges. And he’s very, very good at doing it.
Working with just a bare 51-49 majority for the last year, McConnell’s focus on the judicial confirmation process has helped to ensure that President Trump has already had a major impact on the nation’s federal judiciary, and that impact will only expand in 2019. In fact, outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake’s obstructionism has already created a large backlog of nominations, so we can expect the Senate to get off to a flying start in this regard early in the year.
We should also expect President Trump to have the opportunity to replace at least one, and possibly two more Supreme Court justices during 2019, much to the chagrin of snowflakes, social justice warriors and all other manner of leftwing lunatics. That will make for all sorts of fun.
The Mueller Witch Hunt will finally wrap up. – Because of course it will, and before March is over. That’s been the plan all along, as this fake investigation has always been about one thing and one thing only: Providing the new Democrat House majority with a roadmap for impeachment. You can’t have impeachment without the roadmap, and you don’t get the roadmap until Mueller ends his brutalization of the Constitution and issues a final report.
There will be an impeachment. – Because again, that’s been the plan all along, from the day after Election Day, 2016. That’s what the whole made-up “Russia Collusion” fantasy play has all been about, it’s what the failed efforts by James Comey, Rod Rosenstein and Sally Yates to dummy up an “obstruction of justice” case was all about, it’s what all the machinations by the cabal within the DOJ and FBI have been all about.
The Mueller Report will fail to identify any “high crimes” committed by the President, but that won’t matter to San Fran Nan and her House majority. They obtained that majority based on their implicit promises to impeach Donald Trump, and that is what they will do in order to satisfy their lunatic voter base.
They will never be able to attain the 67 votes needed in the Senate to remove President Trump from office, but they are so demented that they really believe they can hound Mr. Trump from office as a previous generation of Democrats and milquetoast Republicans combined to do to Richard Nixon. Boy, are they in for a big surprise in that regard.
The trade war with China will end. – And it will end pretty soon, probably by the end of the first quarter of the year, because China’s economy is bearing the brunt of the impacts. Just as with the revision and replacement of NAFTA, the new terms of trade will be much more favorable to the United States, although our fake news media will lie endlessly about that.
The U.S. economy will chug right along. – Despite all the recent turbulence in the stock markets, the U.S. economy remains in good shape, and the changes in the corporate tax structure signed into law by President Trump at the end of 2017 will keep massive new capital investments – and jobs – flowing into our country from overseas. The end of the trade war with China and the inevitable gridlock in congress that will result from split control of the House and Senate will settle the markets down and keep the economy growing at a healthy rate.
The Democrat presidential field will produce an embarrassment of …well, embarrassments. – By June, there will be at least 15 Democrat candidates formally running for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. The field will include:
- Creepy Uncle Joe
- Commie Bernie Sanders
- Fauxcahontas (and you all know who that refers to)
- The guy best known for losing to Ted Cruz
- Willie Brown’s paramour
- Bill Clinton’s former bag man
- The feckless son of Mario Cuomo
- A couple of billionaires who nobody really likes
- The mayor of a sanctuary city whose downtown area is fast becoming one big shanty town
- and probably Hillary Clinton, too.
Holy cow. And that’s just for starters.
CNN will keep faking the news. – Because that’s all CNN knows how to do anymore. And let’s be honest, they have plenty of company over at MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and every other national media outlet. CNN’s just basically our favorite poster child for Fake News.
President Trump will keep tweeting. – And thank goodness for that. I love it, just for the entertainment value, and because it enrages so many #NeverTrump nitwits.
Through it all, America will endure. – Because that’s what America does.
God bless America, and God bless you all. Happy New Year!
That is all.
