Acme Impeachment Anvil Falls on Wily Democrats

Things haven’t worked out well for the Wily Democrats. It’s dawning on them that Joe Biden has never won a primary in his 77 years.

Then there was there was the caucus chaos in Iowa.

Elizabeth Warren’s plans to appeal to the far left seem to be losing their favor. But that’s only because Bernie Sanders, a 78 year old socialist, who’s not really a Democrat, is leading the party even further left.

The 38 year old small city Mayor Pete nips at his heels. And 78 year old humongous city Republican Mayor Mike, with billions to burn, is coming on strong. And he says he’s willing to spend whatever it takes.

Wily Democrats

Maybe Amy Klobuchar will prevail in sensible shoes.

But whatever happens, they’ll always have impeachment.

Beep! Beep!

Rake Trouble on Democrat Resistance March

The rake has turned. And President Trump’s acquittal was the final indignity on the Democrats’ long march to impeachment. Every step of the way seemed to backfire on the party elite.

The resistance first schemed to rid itself of its tiresome president with the emoluments clause. Next up was the 25th amendment. And then on to the Russian Collusion conspiracy. But still unable to prove the president of the United States was a Russian spy, they followed Joe Biden into the 2020 campaign. Only to step in it in Iowa as Bernie emerged from the meltdown.

 

Why Not Let The Voters Decide?

The voters will decide in less than a year if Trump deserves to stick around the White House. So why the Democratic rush to impeach him now?  

Well, they’ve been working on it since Trump was inaugurated. To quote the Whistleblower’s lawyer, Mark Zaid, from 2017, “The coup has begun” and “impeachment will follow ultimately.” Really.

Holman Jenkins in the WSJ (paywall protected) calls Trump a “gadfly president.” “But his actions have been extraordinarily consistent with his promises.”

Jenkins speculates Trump might have had enough by now and could be ready to wrap it up. But his opponents are so intent on “destroying him that he needs to hang on to the immunities and powers of the presidency simply to defend himself and the legitimacy of his 2016 victory.”

Covering Hillary’s Russian Assets

Hillary still thinks the Russians beat her.

And maybe she’s right. In a podcast with former Obama advisor David Plouffe Hillary accused Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset. So Tulsi hammered back that Hillary is the “rot that sickens the Democrats.” Not bad for an 11th place Democrat primary challenger.

In the WSJ (it’s paywall protected) Holman Jenkins says the podcast is becoming “famous for all the wrong reasons.” And “Democrats would help themselves by shutting her up.”

The title? Hillary Is a Russian Asset.

Syria Pullout

ISIS J.V. Team

President Trump got off the phone with Turkish President Erdogan and announced he’s pulling the troops out of Syria. And Secretary of Defense James Mattis resigned.

Democrats and Republicans  found common ground slamming the Syria pullout decision. They say the pullout sells out the Kurds and creates a vacuum that ISIS will fill. Same as when Obama pulled out of Iraq. (At least the Republicans say that.)

Pro Syria Pullout

But Reason’s Nick Gillespie and Andrew McCarthy of NR  think Trump did the right thing. If we stay in Syria we’d have to choose sides in a war between Turkey and the Kurds. Erdogan’s nasty but Turkey is a NATO ally. Besides, we’re there illegally. Congress never approved it and that makes it unconstitutional.
