Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The highlight of Marie Yovanovitch’s career illustrates everything that is wrong in the DC Swamp. – Those of you who watched last Friday’s fake “impeachment” clown show hearing all the way to the end – my condolences to all 6 of you – will be aware that those assembled in the hearing room’s audience gave ex-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch a standing ovation as the hearing adjourned.
After all, she had given quite the performance, repeating over and over and over how her removal as the U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine in April had made her “feel,” and how she had a big case of the sads over having to go to work at a cushy job at Georgetown University where she knocks down a couple hundred grand a year polluting the mushy minds of 18 year-olds with her globalist indoctrination propaganda. That’s a hard life by DC Swamp standards since it might require her to drive 30 minutes each way from and to the luxury townhome she no doubt occupies in Arlington, Alexandria or whatever enclave of like-minded “citizens of the world” she lives in.
Even worse, if her car’s in the shop, she might even have to – gasp! – take the nation’s cleanest and most efficient subway into work every once in awhile, which might cause her to have to mingle with some of the little people who don’t share her status as a part of America’s diplomatic corps. Oh, what a terrible lot in life she now must suffer through, all because of the Bad Orange Man in the White House.
Think about that standing ovation for a moment: Exactly who was present in that hearing room audience? The answer is obvious, isn’t it? The room was filled to the gills with Yovanovitch’s fellow DC Swamp rats, skunks and snakes. Lobbyists, political staffers, campaign advisors, fellow members of the Ivy League-educated “diplomatic corps.” Oh, and don’t forget the reporters and camera people – many of them were standing and applauding, too.
Toss in the corrupt Democrats – and a couple of Republicans as well – sitting on the Committee itself, and you had yourself a real microcosm of almost everything that is wrong with our national government today assembled right there in a single congressional hearing room. The only things missing were representatives from our still-corrupt dumpster fire of an FBI, or representatives from the CIA and other intelligence agencies. You know, someone like Eric Ciaramella.
That hearing room was basically populated by the same people who were in attendance at Nationals Park when President Trump was roundly booed during the 5th game of this year’s world series. Yovanovitch would not have received any similar treatment had her hearing been held in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where the crowd assembled for the game between Alabama and LSU gave Trump a long standing ovation of his own just a few weeks ago. Nor would she have received a standing O anywhere else out here in Flyover Country, that vast, red 80% of the continental United States that lies between the elitist enclaves along our East and West coasts.
Yovanovitch’s resume is impressive. She has served her country for 33 years in the only way she knows how to do it. The problem is that the only way she knows how to do it is from the globalist mindset, a mindset that places America’s best interests below the interests of he rest of the world. It is the mindset that for the 28 years prior to Trump’s taking office led to the steady diminution of the United States as a global superpower, and to the transfer of many trillions of dollars in American wealth to every tinhorn dictator, Marxist strongman and EU corruptocrat on the planet.
It’s the mindset of the DC Swamp and the corrupt news media that serves as its loyal megaphone. It’s the mindset that leads media hacks like Chris Wallace to characterize Yovanovitch as a “compelling witness.” Because, inside the Beltway, she was totally compelling. But outside the Beltway and between the coasts, not compelling at all.
Ultimately, that disconnect between the mindset of our society’s self-annointed elites and the rest of America – the real America – is why this impeachment coup effort will end up just like the failed Mueller coup attempt: A miserable, epic failure.
That is all.
