American Elephants


Well Yes, You Could Call the Whole Thing a Train Wreck! by The Elephant's Child

Clearly the Democrat Party has gone stark raving bonkers. They firmly believe that they are supposed to be in control of the federal government and clearly Donald Trump is an aberration. Not supposed to be that way. They were destined to have the first woman President of the United States, and they still haven’t recovered and are still desperately trying to find a way to get rid of the evil Donald Trump. They keep dragging up the Russians, but the facts simply don’t support their efforts. I’m beginning to think that they were so fixated on electing the First Woman President, that they have simply gone a bit off the rails. Those “Firsts” on the record are very important to Democrats.

Their hatred for President Trump has surpassed all norms. Bob Woodward, longtime journalist, features himself as an investigative journalist, with many left-leaning books to his credit about any scandal he can hype. He, of course, doesn’t like Donald Trump. So this time, he blames President Trump for the Corona-19 virus and every death it caused. If you are going throw accusations around, might as well pick a biggie.

I live currently in a Seattle suburb. The first American exposure and death from Covid-19, came to the next suburb just north of my house. Apparently someone carrying the disease returned to relatives in a nursing home directly from Wuhan, China. Everyone contacted by that person contracted the disease and most died. President Trump slapped a freeze on flights from China immediately. Vast outcry from the Left. Bigot, Racist, etc, etc, etc. Trump gathered up the most informed advisers he could find, Dr.Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in January of 2020, and Dr. Rebecca Birx, and listened closely to their advice. State Governors demanded help, they needed ventilators, Trump pushed American auto makers to shift some production to making ventilators, Governors demanded more hospital beds, Trump sent two US Navy hospital ships, and military hospitals were set up in parks and stadiums where there was room. Masks were needed and produced. The record goes on with the President trying to meet every new need, and shut down that which was not safe. Impossible to control everything that was going on. New York Governor Cuomo directed ailing elders to be treated in senior care homes, and caused vast numbers of deaths of the elderly. Cruise ships that had someone infected on board became death traps. Lots of deadly mistakes were made as we learned about the disease. Mr. Woodward, a small former journalistic star, has betrayed his profession and whatever honored journalistic career he once had, with a partisan attack that is just a partisan lie. Shame on him.

Now we have the battle of the Supreme Court. Democrats are outraged that with Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death, President Trump will, as the Constitution requires, name a new justice for the Senate to approve. Democrats are threatening to impeach Trump once again, for any reason they can think up, anything to keep him from naming a new candidate to replace the late Justice Ginsberg. He has no right to do this when there’s an election coming up in two months, and Biden might win, and then he would appoint a left-leaning candidate.

The Constitution is just fine, until it doesn’t support what you want to do. Naming a potentially conservative justice to the Supreme Court just means the Democrats will have to pack the court and expand the number of justices so they can be in control. They are Democrats and entitled not to be troubled by some hillbilly backwoods bunch of Conservatives, who just don’t understand the way it was meant to be.

See, I can remember a time, long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far aw… wait, I’m getting my intros confused…

I remember when the Democrats used to at least fake trying to win a argument on the merits, and you could even disagree with them without them turning into Glenn Close in the movie “Fatal Attraction”. Not now.

Now it seems their only agenda is opposing Trump and anyone associated with him, simply because of “Orange Man Bad”, and simple disagreement has fallen by the wayside. No, now, to disagree with a liberal means Total War.

And their candidate, Ol’ Slow Joe Biden, isn’t helping matters. Claiming he wants to unite the country, on those rare occasions when he does go out to campaign, he simply repeats lies that have been proven false, not to mention his “gaffes”, which some see as his mental decline. The thing is, I knew Biden in the 90’s… there really wasn’t that much mental to decline in the first place.

And now Democrats are planning all sorts of nastiness. More rioting if President Trump names a successor to Justice Ginsberg. More rioting if Trump is reelected. In general, just more rioting.

In Congress, they’re thinking of changing the rules so conservatives never, ever regain power: DC and Puerto Rico statehood, for four more reliably Democrat Senators. Adding seats to the Supreme Court to maintain a liberal majority. Ending the filibuster altogether, so that the minority has no real voice.

Basically, the Democrats are losing with the rules as written, so they’re wanting to change the rules so that only they can win.
