American Elephants


The Impeachment Circus Continues! by The Elephant's Child

The Impeachment Circus has moved to the Senate for trial. Nancy Pelosi is operating under the illusion that everyone hates President Trump just as much as she and her cohorts do, because Democrats speak only to other Democrats and are unfamiliar with the ideas of conservatives. They just regard us as the enemy.

She made a big deal of appointing the Democrat judges for the Senate trial. She had special pens made up with her name on them, and handed them out on silver platters. (Really!) Clearly, she seems to believe that this is a very big deal and they will go down in history as ridding the American people of a terrible president. They have struggled so hard to find something to impeach him for. They were so sure in the first place that they would be able to get him for working with the Russians, and that didn’t work, though I think they still believe that was real and they just couldn’t find the evidence.

Nancy Pelosi tweeted on January 14: “American elections should be decided by the American people not by the Russian Government.”

The fairly obvious response is that the American election was decided by the American people. They chose Donald Trump!

You may have thought that Hillary Clinton was the better candidate, and that the first woman to be president would be a big deal, but a very large number of people thought Hillary was a compulsive liar, had been a remarkably poor Secretary of State, was very unlikable, drinks too much, and doesn’t do her homework. And then there was Benghazi.

I have never understood the Democrats’ seething hatred for Donald Trump. Sure he has a funny haircut, uses tanning creme, wears his neckties too long and tweets. So What? He has the American economy booming, the envy of the world. The greatest benefits of the thriving economy have gone to the poorest people, those who were unemployed and now have jobs. We are now a major oil exporter. We have a trade deal with our closest neighbors, Mexico and Canada. The Wall on our Southern border is going up, and the flow of illegal criminals and drugs is being reduced. And he has eliminated one of the world’s worst terrorists, whose plots will no longer threaten us here at home.

Perhaps that is the major reason they hate him. Obama was quite sure that in today’s times there was no possibility of getting economic growth above two percent. Democrats depend on buying votes. Medicare for all, free healthcare, free college, paid off student loans. And here’s this president that they hate and he’s doing all these things that Americans seem to like. They are terrified that he might even be reelected for another four years.

And of course the biggest thing is that they are no longer in control. They see themselves as morally superior, entitled to be in charge, and to have all the most important ruling roles.
