Wanted: Leader For Democrat Party. No Experience Necessary.

As I sit out here in the desert, breathing the clean air, and enjoying the sunshine…ok…we had the remnants of Hurricane Jimena sweep by over the past couple of days…but it hit me. The Democrats are all excited about “taking over the House”, which they may or may not do. But their strategies if they are victorious are rather dubious. Let’s explore, shall we?

First of all, let’s tackle the “Maxine Waters” incident. She’s been vociferous about “Impeach 45” since before Trump was elected. OK, let’s play her game. Let’s say the Dems take over the House of Representatives. What happens then is interesting. They want to impeach Donald Trump. There really aren’t any charges that he’s been found guilty of. There has been the Mueller investigation that has found no evidence that we know of, and none of the other investigations by the FBI or Senate or House committees have found one shred of evidence against anything he’s done wrong. Oh, the New York Times has made up a few articles, but they’ve lost all credibility, and really don’t count anymore.

If the House were to impeach Trump, then what happens is that the House files articles of impeachment…the same thing as bringing their charges as to why they are impeaching him. Then it goes to the Senate. The House has “managers” that will basically prosecute Trump, and he will have his own attorneys defend him. The Senate sits as judges and the process is run by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts. It requires a simple majority to impeach someone, but two-thirds majority in the Senate to actually convict someone. No one has ever been convicted in the Senate after an impeachment. Andrew Johnson escaped by one vote, and Bill Clinton had 45 votes to convict on the charge of perjury, and 50 votes to convict on charges of obstruction of justice. Both fell way short of the 67 votes needed. it’s unlikely Trump would ever be convicted.

Now let’s move to Kavanaugh. The worst that could happen to Kavanaugh if confirmed by the Senate would be to face the same fate, impeachment. Again, the House would get the articles of impeachment, there is really no evidence, so the Senate would never convict, and he gets off scot-free because of his innocence. Add to that only one sitting Supreme Court justice has ever been impeached…Samuel Chase, and he was never convicted. He ended up dying in the high court.

Everything else the Dems would do would be to obstruct Donald Trump’s agenda for two more years until the 2020 presidential elections. It’ll be kind of like what happened to Obama after 2010’s midterms. Now, is that necessarily a bad thing? Maybe. The wall won’t get built. There won’t be any immigration reform. Healthcare won’t get fixed, and will wither and die on the vine. And there won’t be any new tax cuts. Basically you’ll have gridlock. Is that necessarily a bad thing? Traditionally, I’d say no. The less Congress does in this day and age, the better, but those are things that need to be fixed, and the in-fighting will continue.

The problem is, the Democrats don’t have a leader, so they rely on Nancy Pelosi, who’s a dinosaur and not even assured she’d be able to win back the Speaker’s role in the House, and Chuck Schumer who has been a terrible Minority Leader for the Dems in the Senate. He hasn’t been able to do anything positive in his role since he took over from Harry Reid.

Overall, if you’d like to be the leader of that party, the job is open…you just have to deal with liberal wackjobs and Hillary Clinton constantly…but it pays pretty well, and you get to be on television all the time. Who knows? You probably could line your own pockets like the Clinton’s did, and throw the next Democrat’s primary to your bestest buddy in the world!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. I’m not sure this is true, but it’s what I hope to believe. If the Dem’s do win the house and attempt to impeach either Trump or Kavanaugh, or both, they will truly have jumped the shark.

    We all know the proverbial story of the camel that got its nose under the tent. That’s what this Kavanaugh nomination has emphasized but it’s not what you think. It’s not gaining the Dem’s any incremental forward movement on support for their ideology, but instead its exposing their “anti-anything-conservative” agenda.

    We’ve all seen those U.S. election maps that show the vast majority of Red districts with only a small amount of Blue, which are primarily on the East and West coasts. I believe that most reasonable people are seeing their “resist everything conservative” agenda and both Red and Blue citizens are moving farther away from any association with those sort of tactics. The media dishonestly emphasizes the size of these protest rallies while not showing the rallies of support, similar to how they profess that Hillary won the popular vote. So what! Sorry bud, but that’s not
    how it works!

    I certainly hope the Dem’s don’t win the House, but if they do, I say, “Let’r rip!” They will once again lose their argument along with more of the moderate Democrat’s.

    Bottom line: If you watch TV you think that there’s a vast majority of protesters out there, but the truth is, there’s very few. And I don’t think there’s any “reasonably moderate” Democrat who wants to put themselves out there to represent that sort of agenda.

    “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again”.-Ronald Reagan
