So…What Happens NOW?

In one of history’s most boring and predictable moments, the United States Senate voted to exonerate President Donald J. Trump on both charges against him. You knew it was going to happen. I knew it was going to happen. The Senate knew it was going to happen. Nancy Pelosi knew it was going to happen. I don’t think there was a person in this country that didn’t think it was going to happen. The Democrats in the House of Representatives have wasted over one hundred million dollars of yours and my money in this fiasco. And the end result is exactly what everyone said it would be when they started this mess.

What did it prove?

Absolutely nothing! It proved that Democrats were hell-bent on hanging an “impeachment” tag on Trump. It proved that they knew all along it wasn’t going to go anywhere. Other than that, it proved nothing. And there’s one question that remains that needs to be explored.

What happens now?

Well, we go back to “business as usual”, but is it really business as usual? I mean, the House is going to do one of two things…and I bet it’s the latter. Either they are going to forget this nonsense about impeaching a president when there is absolutely no chance of conviction. Or, they are going to resume their investigations into whatever mamby pamby snowflake laden rumors and innuendos that they can find, hoping to find something ELSE to impeach him on.

If I’m right, and the House continues down this path of hatred and divisive politics, the odds are better than 50/50 that the American public is at some point going to get fed up with them. At that point they will vote the Democrats out of power and it will return to the Republicans. It may be in 2020, It may be in 2022, but it will happen. That you can take to the bank.

As far as what COULD happen, well, the Democrats COULD rile their base to elect someone like a Bernie Sanders or a Sleepy Joe Biden to the presidency. They COULD take back the Senate, telling their party members that if they took back the Senate, at least they could have called witnesses in the impeachment. At least it COULD have been a “fair trial” in their eyes. And they COULD excite their base to the point they actually expand their control of the House. And of course, pigs could fly out of my butt.

What WILL happen? I think the country is going to eventually hold them accountable for what they did. I think that Donald Trump is going to use this as a campaign issue to get more Republicans elected to the House and hold the Senate. And it will help him, not hurt him in the upcoming election. I think everybody kinda, sorta realizes that he’s the odds on favorite to win re-election this year, which can be dangerous (just ask Hillary!). But still, I think the odds are very good. I think they are about 50/50 the GOP rides the Trump coattails and takes back the House, and a little better than 50/50 that they expand their lead by up to three seats in the Senate. At least that’s the way it looks now. It could change.

The one think following politics for 45 years has taught me. In February, it’s way to early to know what’s going to happen in November. If the GOP gets lax, and decides not to turn out, thinking that everything is going to go their way, they will lose. If they come out in force, and can convince enough independents that Democrats are off the rails, it will be a very nice place to live for the next few years. The choice is ours.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. I think the Democrats can’t help themselves. It’s as if they are hooked on meth. They know it hurts their party and bolsters Trump, but the euphoria of the drug is so intense they can not rationalize beyond their delusional world. The more they investigate, the less they find and the angrier the voting public becomes. The Dems could find themselves on the outside looking in, come November. Particularly if the Trump Econmy continues strong and with a strong emphasis helping those that the Dems have only paid lip service to for the past 60 years. Add that with some real policy talk & action about the border, healthcare, prescription drugs, and infrustructure, the Republicans could sweep the House, & add 3 or 4 more seats in the Senate, particularly as independent voters, who decide presidential elections, are even more infuriated with the Democrats looking for more rabbit holes that never lead to Wonderland.

    Pelosi, Nadler & Schiff have already spent their wad & most of America have turned them off. 30 Democrat House seats, where Trump won in 2016, are getting an earful from home. This weekend, even Mit Romney has to go home to the Republican, Trump Loving State of Utah and try to defend the indefensible. He could go the way of Jeff Flake and his party could show him some tough love & push him out.

    Go ahead, Democrats, bring it on! And take Mit Romney with you. ‘Cause, We don’t want him and you are only hurting yourselves!

    1. You’re seeing it exactly as I see it, Kid! I cannot fathom that Americans are going to be thinking that what the Democrats are doing…by CONTINUING to investigate Trump even after getting shellacked by impeachment…is going to lead to anything…well, anything except voter distrust. As for Mitt Romney, you hit the nail on the head. He’s another Jeff Flake, who is totally meaningless now (not even a resident of Arizona anymore!). And for the three stoogies of Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff, let’s hope their voters realize what asses they are making their voters out to be!
