If Democrats produce nothing new with investigation theyll prove the President right

As this week started, Democrats around the country were buzzing about the potential of the House Judiciary Committee’s new investigation into President Trump either impeaching him or sending him to jail. It represents the shallow level of knowledge of the electorate when it comes to such things. But the real reason there will be a “sweeping” (the new buzzword of the day) investigation into pretty much everything the President has done since being elected in 2016 has nothing to do with sending him to jail and very little to do with the potential to impeach him.

This is all about embarrassing him ahead of the 2020 election. No more. No less.

Here’s the big story about it from the New York Times:

Before we discuss what this is, let’s discuss what it’s not.

This has next to zero chance of resulting in an impeachment. Why? Because the Robert Mueller investigation has already investigated nearly everything the House intends to investigate. They did it more thoroughly than the House will and they did it with the goal of looking specifically for crimes. If they’re going to impeach the President, they’ll need to come up with more than the Mueller investigation, which they will not.

This has zero chance whatsoever of resulting in criminal charges against the President. That’s not the scope of a House investigation. Again, Mueller’s investigation as well as ongoing investigations by New York were looking for crimes. They found some, but nothing directly connected to the President.

So if it’s not for impeachment or criminal charges, what’s the point of the investigation? It’s all about embarrassment. It’s about narrative. It’s about combing through the work the previous investigations have done in search of things the investigations didn’t deem criminal but the American people might deem offensive. Anything the Democrats can spin to make the President look bad ahead of the 2020 election, they’ll get it on record and out to the people.

It all sounds rosy for the Democrats, right? Not totally. They’re going with the assumption they can find information that will make the President look bad. What if there’s not enough? What if they’re able to come up with things the public already knows, in which case they will have wasted time and taxpayer dollars in an investigation that yielded no fruit instead of addressing the problems that plague the nation.

It’s not only possible but likely the Democrats will paint themselves into a corner on this one. If they can’t produce anything interesting that we haven’t heard already, they’ll prove the President’s point about witch hunts just before the election.

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tax lien actually matters

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs tax lien actually matters

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a tax lien against her for a failed business venture from 2012. She owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes. No big deal, right? Things happen.

I would actually be in the camp who’s currently calling this a nothingburger except for one major point. She still hasn’t paid it. It’s not an insignificant amount, but it’s also not an amount that needs to linger for years, and especially not for two weeks after an aide said she would be paying it immediately. Why didn’t she? Why are lawyers looking it instead?

But on Thursday, her aide Corbin Trent said that the Congresswomanโ€™s lawyers were looking into the matter.

It’s one thing to say, “Oops,” and get it paid. It’s another thing altogether to say, “Oops,” then not get it paid, then get lawyers involved in the matter. This isn’t something one would consider contestable; she started a business venture, it failed, now she owes money. As a member of the House of Representatives, and as a socialist who believes in taking people’s money and redistributing it, she should be willing to pay off her debt to the government as quickly as possible.

This will go down as one of the many peculiarities about the Congresswoman that she’s probably going to blame on conservative media. After all, socialism and personal responsibility don’t usually go hand-in-hand.

Joe Biden is considering Stacey Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate,ย Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats’ incentive on Electoral College

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats incentive on Electoral College

The founders decided to employ an Electoral College in picking the President to prevent tyranny by majority. They realized back then exactly what is happening today – the establishment of urban and suburban echo chambers that would rather see flyover country engulfed by a giant tornado than to “suffer” through conservative and Christian ideologies, especially in Washington DC. This is the driving force behind the sudden push to abolish the Electoral College, and the satirical masterminds at Babylon Bee nailed it.

Democratic candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the charge to make the process that saved us from a Hillary Clinton presidency obsolete. Why? Because they can’t figure out how to win otherwise. Sure, they were able to dominate the Electoral College with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but the last two Democratic Presidents were running against weak Republicans in both of their elections. Had they been running against conservatives, especially in each of their first elections, the results may have been very different and the country may be in much better shape by now.

Nevertheless, this is what the Democrats want. Any system that can yield President Trump is a system they know they can fight against with their unhinged supporters, blind followers, and Trump haters.

That’s the nature of America today. Satire doesn’t need to venture too far away from reality in order to get a hilarious version of the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in, especially as it pertains to the loony party on the far left.
