Stock Market Impeachment Indicator

The stock market hit record highs. Trump's bragging. And Democrats are impeaching. Just like Republicans when the market jumped on Clinton's watch.

The stock market hit record highs. Trump’s bragging. And Democrats are impeaching.

Just like Republicans when the market jumped on Clinton’s watch.

Pelosi Impeachment Procession

House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…

Trump Made his Move

“Mr. Trump has often seemed a president playing checkers while America’s adversaries play chess. He is not given to nuanced strategic concepts or long-range plans.” That’s how WSJ’s Holman Jenkins sees it.

But this time maybe he was a little nuanced, not responding while the Iranians made their moves. Or maybe he was napping, since he only sleeps four hour a night. Anyway, Iran’s proxies moved on oil tankers, bombed oil fields and shot down a U.S. drone. And Trump did nothing. Until they fired rockets at an American base, killing a contractor, and set fire to the American Embassy. Then Trump made his move, executing the evil genius General Soleimani Rocket Man style with a missile.

Long Range Plans

And now it’s not just all Death to America anymore. “His demise will not stop his mission,” said Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei, “But the criminals who have the blood of General Soleimani and other martyrs of the attack on their hands must await a tough revenge.”

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.”

Stable Genius Meets Austere Religious Scholar

The Washington Post described Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “Austere Religious Scholar” in one much mocked headline. So they changed it. Several times.

Anyway it looks like the Very Stable Genius got the best of the Austere Religious Scholar.
