American Elephants


What We have Been Reading and Mulling Over: by The Elephant's Child

At Commentary:  John Steele Gordon asks: “Has the American Economy ever been in better shape than it is today? The answer, frankly, is no.”

The American economy continues its robust growth. Two hundred sixty-six thousand new jobs were added in November, well above expectations, while the unemployment rate dropped back to September’s and October’s jobs numbers adjusted upwards, job growth has averaged 208,000 jobs for the last three months.

At Powerline blog: By Scott Johnson “BARR IS ON THE CASE”

Attorney General William Barr sat for an extended interview with NBC’s Pete Williams to discuss the findings in the Department of Justice Inspector General report released yesterday afternoon. NBC has cut the thing up in a couple of stories, but it has also posted the whole thing on YouTube (24-minute video below).

If you can find the time, do watch the video. Attorney General William Barr will make you feel like there are still some grownups here.

Scott followed that up with BARR IS ON THE Case 2

At National Review: “The Articles of Impeachment are Very Weak” by Andy McCarthy:

The charges range from insignificant to implausible to inane.

Democrats rolled out two articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday, alleging abuse of power and obstruction.

As noted over the weekend, I had to correct myself when writing that the impeachment inquiry that led to this point was a “rush to judgment.” The judgment was made long ago. The president has been Impeached Man Walking for “The Resistance” since before he took the oath of office. The House proceedings have been a matter of rushing the process until it catches up to a judgment of three years’ standing.

The Democrats have oversold the impeachment idea. How could they help it? Their Crazies are loudly proclaiming how horrible Trump is daily and demanding his removal from office. They have gone too far, and their arguments are falling apart. The FBI is in deep trouble. Much is yet to come, including the other investigation.
