Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The Democrats have new talking points, not a new strategy, on impeachment. – In case you missed it, I told you yesterday evening that San Fran Nan has changed her talking points on impeachment, and went onto explain why it’s pretty much certain that she is lying (hint: her lips are moving).
In case you missed Pelosi’s comments and don’t want to click the provided link, here they are:
“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”
Of course, the fake news media, in its collective duty to serve as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, is treating Pelosi’s new script as if it were the 10 Commandments handed down from on high, and repeating them across the interwebnets and your TV screens this morning. Even some conservative voices are buying into the doddering Speaker’s new act, and treating her highly-qualified statements as if they’re some sort of “win” for President Donald Trump.
To be fair to those fellow conservatives, it isn’t just Pelosi reading from a new script here. Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, echoed Pelosi’s remarks when questioned by CNN’s Manu Raju: “I think given how polarized the country is right now and given how the Republican members of Congress have prostrated themselves right now in front of the president, in the absence of very graphic evidence, it would be difficult to get the support of” the Senate.
But execrable New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler, whose own House Judiciary got the impeachment ball rolling by sending out 81 subpoenas last week, gave away the game when he told Raju “She laid down a number of conditions – it has got to be bipartisan, the evidence has to be overwhelming – which is what I’ve been saying.”
Get it yet? This is not a “win”, it’s not the Democrats backing away in fright from what polls show would be an extremely unpopular move to impeach the President. What it is is the Democrats, startled that the testimony by their “star witness” Michael Cohen was simply rejected by the vast majority of the public – including an overwhelming percentage of self-identifying Independents – now taking one step back and switching to a more cautious set of talking points.
Ok, I guess you could call that a moral victory of sorts.
But that’s all this is, folks – Democrats do this all the time. They and their media agents will stick with this set of talking points for a couple of weeks and then Schiff will start issuing subpoenas of his own. Then the talking points will change again, but the process and the strategy will remain the same.
The Democrats engage in this kind of deceitful behavior because they think you are a bunch of mindless sheep – and they are sadly right about the 37% of you who believed a word Michael Cohen said – and because they know the media is in their pocket and thus would never dream of holding them accountable.
Sorry to be repetitive here, but this is a learning moment for everyone. I know it is hard for many people to wrap their minds around exactly how abjectly dishonest the Democrat Party and national news media have become. Hard to believe this could have happened in this country.
But it has happened in this country, and once you accept that reality, everything they do and say makes perfect sense.
That is all.
