Writing this morning to get thoughts on paper, before final decisions have been made by the Democrat party to willingly self-destruct in a manner that will more than likely end their existence while making their political resurrection virtually impossible as they seek to “impeach” President Donald Trump.
The underlying reasons that the far-left, in partnership with the mainstream media, have decided on political suicide pursuing the Trump impeachment fiasco, don’t really matter very much because statistically their segment of the nation’s society is merely a blip. Roughly 40% of the nation typically votes Republican, another 40% typically votes Democrat, while the remaining 20% refers to itself as “independent.” Of the 40% comprised of Democrats, it’s believed that half, or less, comprise the so-called far left.
What this means is, that although the mainstream media would have its declining audience believe that presidential impeachment is favored by a national majority, actual unbiased poll results reveal that a very small tail is wagging a very large dog. Because, as the congressional impeachment viewership indicates, the proceedings generated little more than a yawn from the public in actuality.
But what’s far more indicative of the probable outcome of this situation as perceived by this writer, is to take a step back and look at the reality of what’s truly involved. On one hand we have leftists claiming they’re up in arms because of the president’s involvement with Ukraine, and then violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by accepting payments from foreign dignitaries, possession of assets that could raise a conflict of interest, including a statement that failure to divest such assets would constitute high crimes and misdemeanors. That’s followed by claims of conflicts of interest arising from Trump's ability to use his political position to promote the interests of "Trump"-branded businesses, and ongoing payments by foreign entities to businesses within the Trump business empire also a violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause. And then there’s the recent refusal of the administration to turn over documents relating to potential conflicts of interest and to ties with Russia.
Most importantly, of course are the headline-making, ongoing accusations that an investigation of Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden was made specifically to harm the Biden campaign for President.
In the meanwhile, as the Democrats pursue their impeachment agenda while not yet sure of what, if any, impeachable offense has been committed, we have real world presidential performance results as related by Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the U.S. Treasury Department Monica Crowley yesterday to Breitbart News.
According to Crowley: “President Donald Trump’s ‘economic freedom agenda’ has sparked the highly successful economic growth that has now led to the lowest unemployment rate in half a century.
“Since the president’s election in November 2016, the economy has added more than 7 million jobs,” Crowley said. “This is more than the entire population of Massachusetts last year. It’s also 5.1 million more jobs than the Congressional Budget Office, CBO, projected in its final forecast before the 2016 election. What it shows is common sense economic policies based on freedom work. Tax cuts, deregulation, unleashing the energy sector, and trying to realign international trade—all of which this president promised during the campaign, all of which he has delivered. That, in turn, is delivering us this incredible economy.”
Perhaps more importantly than the job growth and historic lows in unemployment is that in November wages rose by 3.1 percent over the last 12 months as well. That means Americans not only have better prospects of finding employment when they want to, but they’re taking home more money when they do find that job. What’s more, among working class and blue collar workers, wages rose at 3.7 percent—higher than the average worker—which means Trump’s economy is helping the very people he set out to help when he launched his 2016 presidential campaign by pledging to stand up for American workers and families left behind by the nation’s elites.”
All of which leads to the actuality that, despite what’s being propagandized by the leftist media, voters have personal priorities far outweighing the political agenda of a relatively small cadre of irrational zealots. Bringing up the most important question of all for me today: Who’s out there to continue the legacy five years from now when Trump’s second term in office ultimately comes to a close?
That’s it for today folks.
