Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
More WINNING. Sooooo much WINNING. – The NASDAQ closed at a record high for a fifth straight day on Wednesday, while other market indexes closed fractionally lower, weighed down by bad news from Boeing, which announced it would discontinue building its troubled 737 Max jetliner.
Different houses, different agendas. – Also on the WINNING front, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just keeps plowing ahead on the appointment of Trump judges. While San Fran Nan and her Democrat freak show caucus was focused on shoving through its impeachment sham in the House, McConnell was focused on shoving through 13 more Trump-appointed judges in the Senate:
These 13 judges bring the total Trump- appointed District Court judges to an amazing 174 in just three years. The Senate has also approved 50 Trump appointees to federal appellate courts during those three years. That is WINNING on a grand scale.
The “somber” impeachment became a celebration. – Prior to the start of yesterday’s impeachment debate on the House floor, the despicable, demented and depraved Pelosi admonished her troops that they must pretend – like her – that this was a “somber” occasion, a necessary decision that they come to only reluctantly and with heavy hearts.
All of which is, of course, abject bullshit, but hey, these are Democrats – everything they do and say is abject bullshit. Sorry for the language, but the time for niceties with these evil people has passed and the need for painful honesty has arrive.
The Democrats managed to maintain their faux solemnity for much of the day, but when the time for Pelosi to announce the final tally on the first sham article of impeachment arrived, slurring her speech in the process, they just could not contain themselves. Watch:

Was Pelosi drunk on alcohol? Probably, although with her fugitive denture situation it’s always difficult to tell. But her caucus was drunk on power, which is all anyone in the Democrat Party cares about anymore.
Speaking of power-mad drunks, Mad Maxine Waters provided another highlight during the debate, when she shocked everyone by giving the sign for “white supremacy” with her left hand while speaking from the podium:
And all this time you thought she was a black supremacist racist hack. Life is complicated.
For the record, yesterday’s impeachment vote represents the first purely-partisan impeachment exercise in American history. Never before in the history of this country have the people borne witness to such a raw, naked, wholly desperate grasp for political power by a single party. Honest historians, of which there are precious few anymore thanks to leftist pollution of our entire education system, will record December 18, 2019 as a day of infamy, one that rivals Pearl Harbor and 9/11/2001 as days of mourning for our nation’s loss.
What yesterday’s purely partisan vote proves is that there are truly no people of good intent in the Democrat Party today. That vote means that, as we noted a few days ago, the Democrat Party is no longer a political party whose purpose is to govern, but a simple radical left activist group whose operational purpose now is to destroy the American Republic and every one of its institutions.
And they are well along their way to achieving that goal. The Democrats have spent the last 80 years creating a permanent underclass of Americans who they view as possessions, not human beings. They have already destroyed the Fourth Estate – the news media – which the Founders believed would serve as the public watchdog that would hold people with power accountable. They have already destroyed our education system for all intents and purposes.
Under Barack Obama, the left pretty much destroyed America’s system of justice, including the Department of Justice and the FBI. They corrupted our intelligence community to the point that it, along with the media, is now a true enemy of the people. And they corrupted our military leadership to the point where the senior personnel at the Pentagon cannot be trusted to simply do their jobs and follow the lawful orders of their Commander-in-Chief.
Indeed, the Democrats are now so power mad and convinced that their goal of total destruction of the Republic is in sight that Pelosi is now threatening to withhold sending her faux articles of impeachment to the Senate as required by the Constitution unless she agrees with the rules for a Senate trial:
“We’ll make a decision … as we go along,” Pelosi told reporters, adding that “we’ll see what the process will be on the Senate side.” “We have acted,” Pelosi continued, repeatedly refusing to commit to sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate. “Now, they’ll understand what their responsibilities are, and we’ll see what that is.”
In the original – actually good – film “Ghostbusters,” the demi-god Zul admonishes the Ghostbuster crew to “choose the form of the Destructor.” In response, Dan Aykroyd’s character, unable to clear his mind, accidentally chooses the Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man, setting up the film’s hilarious climactic scene.
In November, 2018, American voters, unable to clear their minds of the “Russia Collusion” pollution generated by the sham Mueller Investigation and spoon-fed to them by the Democrat activist toadies in the national news media, accidentally chose Nancy Pelosi, setting up this not-so-hilarious impeachment outcome.
In “Ghostbusters,” the good guys ultimately managed to slay the Destructor and save the city.
In real life, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all works out for America.
That is all.
