One of the many lies the fake news media often tells is that suburban women in America are approving less and less of President Trump, leaving the fake news reporters to believe that Trump is “finished” and will be soundly defeated come next November. Considering how wrong they have been about so many other things and considering how many other news reports should have “finished” Trump long before any of this, I’m surprised they still buy the crap they are selling. Drug dealers aren’t supposed to use their supply, but these people are constantly inundated in the garbage that they spew, so they believe it.
But in any case, fake news polls have tried to suggest that Trump is losing ground fast with suburban women, a demographic that usually leans Republican. However, this is far from the truth.
According to a recent report from OpenSecrets.org, President Trump has more suburban women donating to him than any of the 2020 Democrat candidates.
As you can see, President Trump tops the list of both Suburban Women Donors at 10,534, with Kamala Harris coming in behind him with almost 3,000 less donors, then Joe Biden, Mayor Pete, Booker, Warren, Klobuchar, Beto (who is no longer running), Crazy Bernie, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro and finally, Tulsi Gabbard.
He also tops the list of total contributions from suburban women donors at $8,293,135. Grace Haley, a researcher working for a research group that tracks money in American politics, wrote: “Suburban women, who power a significant electoral battleground, are a key demographic for 2020. Since Trump’s inauguration, more than 7,000 women in suburban districts have given large-dollar contributions to his campaign. That totals $8 million, the most of all candidates.”
Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner noted that in 2016, 28% of Trump’s “itemized contributions” were from women. For 2020, that number stands at 35%.
Now, when it comes to women in general, the President ranks 5th in donations out of all candidates at $15.1 million, behind Crazy Bernie ($17.1 million), Fauxcahontas, Mayor Pete, and Kamala Harris. But that’s just on paper.
According to OpenSecrets.org, “Campaigns are not required to itemize donations of $200 or less, so we do not have demographic information about Trump’s small donors giving to his joint fundraising committees with the Republican National Committee, Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee. An estimated 59% of Trump’s donations are from small-donors, so Trump’s contributions from women are most certainly higher than $15 million. Trump’s totals are underestimated more than the other candidates. Because Democrats are relying on ActBlue and the Republicans are not relying on the Republican equivalent WinRed as significantly, we only have most (not all) donor demographic data for Democratic small-dollar donors.”
In other words, while the President’s total from large-donor contributions puts him in 5th place, that only contributes to about 40% of his total contributions. He easily could be far higher, maybe even number one among women, if small-donor contributions were taken into account and recorded.
But even if we don’t know for sure just how much more money women have been giving Trump, one thing is for sure: he is not in 5th place and he has accrued more than $15 million from women in America.
Amy Kremer, chairwoman of Women for America First and co-founder and chairwoman of Women for Trump PAC, told Breitbart News that it’s “no surprise that women are contributing to the president’s campaign” because many women in the suburbs have families to take care of. “Women are focused on issues that impact our children and our families and President Trump is delivering results.” She also added that when women donate to him, “it’s an easy donation when you know what you are going to get in return and this president has followed through on his promises, and his policies have been good for women and their families.”
Open Secrets also made sure to mention that the Trump campaign acknowledges that suburban women often support the President more than reported because “the polling data does not account for suburban women who favor Trump but do not feel comfortable publicly saying so.”
This is generally true about many other things and within other demographics. Often times, people believe that Trump is such a polarizing figure that they do not wish to express support for him to media pollsters out of fear of shaming or persecution, so they withhold that support, either saying they are undecided, do not support him at all or say they support him but not too strongly.
This tends to happen because the media and the Democrats have been so toxic about anyone supporting Trump that people figure it’s better to keep your mouth shut or not express outward support for Trump and stay out of unnecessary conflicts. Most people just want to live their lives undisturbed by hateful people, so they support Trump because he’s not a nutbag like the rest of the Democrats, but won’t publicly admit it out of fear of being verbally or physically attacked or maligned.
But while people might be fearful of publicly supporting the President, they certainly show their support come election time or when it comes to donations. It’s part of the reason some ill-intending Leftists have tried to dox Trump donors because many won’t outright state they support Trump but still support him anyway and these hateful bigots can’t bear the thought of living next to a Trump supporter.
However, regardless of the circus that the Democrats orchestrate in the impeachment hearings (and oh boy, are witnessing some prime circus material here with Schiff establishing different questioning rules for Democrats and Republicans and with one of Schiff’s star witnesses admitting that he thinks Burisma should be investigated, which is what Democrats are trying to impeach Trump for), regardless of what the media tries to spin out of it and what the media tries to report (it started with quid pro quo but when there was clearly no evidence to support it, they shifted to “bribery” which is equally as lacking in evidence), many people support President Trump.
And one couldn’t blame them when the alternatives are a decrepit old man yelling at clouds, a communist pushing for the increasingly unpopular Medicare for All (Rasmussen reports that only 39% of likely voters support the plan, which is far lower than it was just a couple months ago), a fake Indian, and a self-righteous fake Christian who blames God for “making him” gay. One can’t blame them when all of these people have no issue with giving free healthcare to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND DECRIMINALIZING BORDER CROSSINGS!
Like Kremer said, suburban women want what’s best for their families and will vote and donate accordingly. Back-breaking tax increases to pay for everything on the socialist wish list is not what’s best for families and children. Reduction of civil liberties and constitutional rights of free speech and bearing arms are not what’s best for families and children. Putting America Last is not what’s best for families and children.
Trump delivers the opposite (where he can, considering the little support he gets from Congressional Republicans) and advocates putting America First.
Doing that, and more importantly, returning to God, are what’s best for families and children, not to mention the whole of the country.

The Left hates to lose. They believe they are entitled to obtain and retain power forever and that any semblance of a challenge to said power is a crime or against justice itself. They believe anyone who dares take power from them must be brought down and annihilated. This is the sentiment of the Left; it has been for quite some time and currently is as we face a sham of an impeachment inquiry by these very Leftists in the House of Representatives.
But interestingly, while we all know how much of a sham and a silent coup this whole thing is, one would be pretty hard-pressed to find many on the Left who would publicly agree with this being a coup. Enter the fake whistleblower’s lawyer Mark Zaid, who tweeted the following:
In a reply to someone who had tweeted at Zaid, the lawyer said: “It’s very scary (that Trump is in office and “dismantling the government department by department” as the person Zaid is replying to alleged). We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters. We have to.”
I will get to more tweets in a moment, but allow me to take a bit of a tangent here to point out a simple fact: the Left HATES us. Not simply Donald Trump. They hate US – the ones who elected him into office. When they attack Donald Trump, they attack us too. When they threaten Trump, they threaten us. They want to get rid of the guy because they hate him and because they hate us, who dared to challenge their Queen Hillary Clinton and, worse still, actually WON against them.
Zaid is replying to a tweet that talked about how Trump was “dismantling” the government. We aren’t dismantling the government (and Trump isn’t either. He's draining the swamp). But Zaid’s hatred and anger isn’t directed at just Trump. It’s directed at us. He said that the country would “survive” even us. WE are the patriotic ones hoping to Make America Great Again and THEY are the ones who have an allergic reaction to that phrase to the point where they seriously consider punching us in the face. THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, NOT THEIRS!
But in any case, allow me to return to some more tweets and even what Zaid had to say about the tweets.
In another tweet, replying to a Jake Tapper tweet reporting Trump firing then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates (an Obama hold-over who ordered the Justice Department to ignore the President’s travel ban order in an act of insubordination and usurpation of power), Zaid tweeted: “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers.”
This is the tweet that spread like a wildfire on social media (at least in conservative Twittersphere) and where we find the guy ADMITTING THAT THIS ENTIRE THING IS A COUP AGAINST TRUMP!
Zaid, following the revelation of these tweets, sent Fox News a formal statement regarding the tweets. The statement said: “Those tweets were reflective and repeated the sentiments of millions of people. I was referring to a completely lawful process of what President Trump would likely face as a result of stepping over the line, and that particularly whatever would happen would come about as a result of lawyers. The coup comment referred to those working inside the Administration who were already, just a week into office, standing up to him to enforce recognized rules of law.”
So he’s DEFENDING the tweets and doesn’t think they were inappropriate at all, which suits me just fine. He admits that this is a coup and doesn’t try to backtrack. In the meantime, he is an active participant in said coup as the lawyer of the whistleblower who filed the complaint leading the House to launch an impeachment inquiry.
Do me a favor and read over U.S. Code § 2385: Advocating Overthrow of Government and see if some things there may or may not apply to this guy at any extent, especially as being a participant of this impeachment charade.
Regardless of what you may think about the legality of what he said and his involvement in this impeachment process (not to mention the involvement of his client, the whistleblower, having ties to Brennan, Clapper, the “pee” dossier, and most especially Adam Schiff), there’s no doubt that this entire process is marred in corruption at the highest level and is nothing short of a coup against the President. This is something even THE LAWYER admits.
Not that we should really be so surprised. It’s in the Left’s very nature to do this sort of stuff. To prove my point, allow me to relatively briefly (might not be all that brief, fair warning) talk about something that was recently on the Leftist “fact-checking” website Snopes.
Snopes “fact-checked” a picture of President Dwight D. Eisenhower with the caption: "INTERESTING FACT!!! Did you know Democrats have tried to impeach every Republican President since Eisenhower???”
Of course, considering how bad of a look this might be for Democrats, Snopes had to “fact-check” it and their verdict was that the claim was “mostly false.” And as is usually the case for this site, what they say is false is usually true and what they say is true is usually false. So the claim actually is mostly true and it’s something even SNOPES admitted to, though didn’t paint it that way.
Here’s what Snopes said about the picture:
“The U.S. has had six Republican presidents since Eisenhower left office in 1961: Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Donald Trump. The claim is wrong on its face because Democrats made no effort to impeach Ford. While a handful of Democratic lawmakers have introduced articles of impeachment against five of the last six Republican presidents, in most cases these efforts weren’t taken seriously by the party at large. Nixon and Trump have been the only Republican presidents since Ike who have faced a serious threat of impeachment.”
In the style of the Washington Post, I will give Snopes four Pinocchios for their verdict of “mostly false”. The actual verdict is “mostly true.” The only Republican President to not have faced some level of impeachment threats was the one that A) wasn’t elected and B) served only two years after taking office from the guy who resigned because he faced impeachment.
For everyone else, they faced Democrat lawmakers who were trying to impeach them, with varying levels of fervor. But the claim is still mostly true: every Republican President since Ike, except Ford, the Democrats have tried to impeach at varying levels.
Why? Because of what I talked about in the beginning: they HATE opposition and believe they are entitled to power. Donald Trump won fair and square against Hillary, a highly-embattled candidate, and the Left blew a gasket as a result, accusing him of high crimes and misdemeanors at every level from bribery to corruption to collusion (which in itself isn’t a crime) to quid pro quo to outright betrayal of not only his oath of office but to the very country and the Constitution. These people PROVE that Leftism is a mental disease and continue to prove it day in and day out.
There wasn’t an ounce of evidence with regards to every other coup ploy they waged against Trump and there isn’t any evidence to anything they allege in this recent Ukraine one, prompting the Left to fall back on “obstruction of justice” and explore past just Ukraine. In the meantime, support for impeachment hasn’t really moved an inch in the Left’s favor this entire time and there have only been actual signs of the opposite being the case.
The Left is mounting a futile effort to remove the duly-elected President with extremely sketchy and shoddy reasoning, coming from a place of utter hatred for the guy and those of us who voted for him, and Zaid is gladly acknowledging that this is a coup against Trump.
The American Left is virtually no different from the Left in the Soviet Union, China and Europe. They are/were power-hungry tyrants who will depose any and all opposition where it might pop up and we are just supposed to take it in stride.
We elected Trump BECAUSE we were sick and tired of the status quo where the Leftist elites ruled and did whatever they wanted and the limp-stick GOP would let them do whatever they wanted, even if that meant Republicans having to bite the bullet sometimes. The Swamp is fighting back against us in this impeachment sham but we shall receive the ultimate victory. And I say “receive” ultimate victory not because it will be earned by us but because of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ already made and the plan that God has for us and for this country.
The evil of the Left will one day cease to exist and regardless of where this whole thing goes, I can rest assured of that. Now, don’t get me wrong, I fully believe we will beat the Left when it comes to impeachment (they have nothing) and Trump will be re-elected. But there will come a time when the Democrats regain control of the White House and that will truly be a terrifying time. Whether or not the Left is successful in destroying America remains to be seen. I cannot say one way or another what will happen with regards to that. However, I know perfectly well the destination of the evil Left.
What mortal success they may have here on earth, they will lose it all come the Day of Judgement. But in the meantime, let us continue fighting back against the evil Left, fighting for our liberty against tyranny, fighting for Trump and most importantly, fighting for God and His children.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”

I know, I know, that is a very corny headline to use, but I’d say it’s rather an accurate description of what has recently occurred. Last Tuesday was election day for many states, in what the media had hoped would be a sort of preview for the 2020 presidential election (at least wherever Democrats would have won).
For the GOP, I find three notable news: the good, the bad and the ugly.
Let’s begin with the outright ugly first, just to get it out of the way: the GOP has completely lost Virginia.
Perhaps the writing was on the wall in this state, as this was the only Southern state that Trump lost in the 2016 election and considering Ralph “Coonman” Northam and Lt. Gov. Justin “Rapes-a-lot” Fairfax were extremely embattled and yet still won their own races for re-election (mostly because the timid GOP in the state refused to run on those things).
What’s more, Virginia Senate Democrats won 21 out of 40 total seats, and Virginia House Delegates now have 53 out of a total 100 seats, flipping both chambers and wrestling away control of the legislature from the GOP for the first time in decades (though with 30 Democrats running unopposed, such results are to be expected). Much as I hate to say it, Virginia is now a blue state, at least as it currently stands. Unless the Virginia GOP gets its act together, that state will most likely once again vote for the Democrat candidate in the next election and might even become another California (yes, the Democrats have a narrow advantage in the legislature, but still).
So that’s the downright ugly and basically the only thing that Democrats can realistically cling to and have an actual argument against Republicans and Trump.
The bad: the Kentucky Governor’s race went Democrat.
There is good reason this is under the category of simply “bad”. While it is a notable pickup for Democrats, it’s being overhyped. The media pretends as though this particular race ought to scare Trump and Republicans moving forward, but there are a lot of asterisks surrounding this win for the Democrats.
First of all, it was extremely close. The Democrat candidate won the race by just a little more than 5,000 votes. According to Georgia gubernatorial rules, the losing candidate can pretend they won and moan and whine around to the media for the next two years. A joke, of course, but this ought to tell you just how narrow of a win this was for the Democrats. The Georgia race back in 2018 was won by the Republican by less than 55,000 and the Democrats pretended like they won that one, with Stacey Abrams outright proclaiming on media show after media show that she was the real winner. It’s extremely ironic that a race that came down to a little more than only 5,000 votes is considered such a massive win for the Democrats.
Second of all, it shouldn’t have been this close. According to media polls (for however much they might be worth), Gov. Matt Bevin (R) was down around 17 to 20 points before Trump held a rally for the guy. What’s more, Bevin’s approval rating had been hovering around 30% for months prior to this race, so his loss was unsurprising. The guy was not popular at all and was actually the least popular governor in the U.S. back in the summer. The fact that he lost by only a little more than 5,000 votes should be a warning sign for Democrats: Trump’s extremely popular.
The governor was very embattled and it was an uphill battle during this election, falling just short of the goal. His loss was not only unsurprising, but would’ve been far more embarrassing had Trump not rallied and supported him. And let’s not beat around the bush: if the Democrat candidate had lost by the same exact margin that he actually won by, the Democrats and the media would’ve been singing the exact same tune. They still would’ve reported that Trump was in “deep danger” because of a narrow GOP win had that been the case. Instead, they report that Trump is in “deep danger” because of a narrow Democrat win. To these people, reality is what they want it to be, not what it is.
Third of all, while this particular race was, at the end of the day, a loss for Republicans, the rest of the races were all wins. Which brings me to:
Let’s take a look at all the other races in Kentucky alone, at least for now:
Daniel Cameron’s victory is also rather significant on its own because he’s the first African-American ever to be voted into the position and is the first Republican to win that position in over 70 years.
Over in Mississippi, we find the inverse of Virginia: GOP completely controlling the state.
Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves (R) defeated Attorney General Jim Hood (D) 52-46%, a 6-point margin, and will replace outgoing Governor Phil Bryant (R). Both the House and Senate are also in control by the Republicans in the state.
The President sent tweets both in congratulations to the Republicans that won (at least the high-profile ones) and in fully understanding what the media would try to spin out of the Kentucky gubernatorial election. He accurately predicted that the media would blame him for Bevin’s ultimate loss and that it would be spun as a “warning” for Republicans moving forward. The only warning Republicans got out of that race is: don’t be a bad governor.
All-in-all, Tuesday’s elections were a bit of a mixed bag for everyone. The Democrats had a massive win in Virginia, a narrow win in the Kentucky gubernatorial race, the Republicans had big wins at every other level of the Kentucky elections and maintained complete control over Mississippi. But the big takeaways from these races are far from what the media wishes to portray them. The Kentucky Governor’s race was ultimately a loss for the GOP but an extremely close one, considering how utterly unpopular the incumbent GOP governor was. Again, the guy was down by massive margins (according to media polls, but you can never take them at face value) and was extremely unpopular, one of the least popular governors in the country. And still, he barely lost by more than 5,000 votes.
All things considered, that should’ve been a cakewalk for the Democrats and it was far from it. They ultimately came away with the victory, but a pyrrhic one at best.
Donald Trump proves once again how popular he is.

The latest jobs numbers appear to be pretty good for President Trump. For the month of October, the U.S. economy added 128,000 jobs, which is far higher than the 75,000 that was expected from economists, who had forecasts ranging anywhere from 55,000 jobs to 155,000. The unusually wide range is due, at least in part, to how different economists expected the General Motors strike to affect the employment numbers for suppliers and other businesses related to GM.
And while 128,000 is rather low for Trump’s administration, it’s entirely possible they will be revised up next month. You see, back in October, I wrote a similar article as this one, detailing the numbers for September and even talked about July’s and August’s numbers. In that article, I mentioned how the original jobs numbers for July were revised up from 159,000 to 166,000 and the numbers for August were revised up from 130,000 to 168,000.
Well, August’s numbers were revised once again from 168,000 to 219,000, which is far more usual for the Trump economy. What’s more, September’s jobs numbers were revised up from 136,000 to 180,000. So I really have no reason to believe that October’s jobs numbers won’t also be revised up, especially since the GM strike is now over and that means there will be more manufacturing jobs.
The unemployment rate, however, did tick up a little bit, up from last month’s 50-year-low of 3.5% to 3.6%, so not really bad whatsoever. The unemployment rate is still near the record lows and still going great.
When it comes to hourly earnings, the average went up by 0.1%, bringing the year-over-year to a 3% gain.
But there is also good news for African Americans, as described in the title. The unemployment rate for African Americans fell to a record-low 5.4% for the month of October. For black men, the unemployment rate also hit a record low of 5.1%. The previous record low for black men was 5.2%, which was set in December of 1973. The unemployment rate for black women, however, did tick up a little, from 4.6% to 4.8% in October.
Certainly, these are very good news for President Trump, as the House has voted to proceed with an impeachment inquiry, voted for entirely by the partisan majority, with bipartisan support against impeachment (granted, it was only 2 Democrats, but if even one Republican would’ve voted in favor of impeachment inquiry, the Left would’ve called it bipartisan, so let’s beat them at their own game).
As I have said multiple times in the past, you need public support in order to successfully impeach a President. Even if the House votes to impeach, the Senate will not vote to convict, so Trump will remain in office and will most likely steam roll any Democrat opponent he faces. Impeachment is usually a black stain on one’s presidency, but if it’s entirely by Democrat vote (even if some Never Trump Republican swamp-dwellers like Romney vote to remove), then that black stain becomes a badge of honor for Trump.
The swamp is so afraid and disturbed by Trump that they will go to any lengths to get rid of him, even if that means performing an illegitimate (it may be through legal means, but the process of shadow hearings, selective leaks, disallowing Trump to face his accuser and disallowing exculpatory evidence goes against due process, by which this land’s legal system functions) impeachment inquiry and impeachment vote. They haven’t been able to beat him through conventional means and are utterly desperate. The Russia gambit didn’t pay off and they made the mistake of thinking they could actually prove collusion. Now, despite knowing they can’t prove a quid pro quo in the phone call due to the release of the transcript, they decided not to wait around and jumped the shark for impeachment.
They don’t care that the public doesn’t support them on this. Like Al Green said, if Trump isn’t impeached, he will be re-elected. The irony here is that if he is impeached, he will be re-elected too.
But as I said, in order to be successful in impeaching and removing a president, you need public support. The Democrats don’t have that and likely never will with numbers like the ones we are finding. People’s economic well-being is an important issue. No Democrat cares about that, given how many of their policies they are proposing that will 100% raise people’s taxes, despite what they might try and argue.
When it comes to the economy, Trump wins. It’s for this reason that no debate or townhall really featured a section on how to improve the economy because the economy is doing so well under Trump.
We can only expect the economy to still look great under Trump’s policies, especially heading into 2020. However much the Left might try and ruin it to hurt Trump (at the cost of hurting Americans, which tells you all you need to know about how little they care about people), they can only do so much.

If this seems like a familiar topic, that’s because it kind of is. Back in late September, I wrote an article detailing five polls that should scare the Democrats going into 2020. Today, we will be looking at ten polls, instead of five, that should do the same.
Without further ado, let us begin with:
Poll #1: only 36% of registered voters support a House attempt to impeach President Trump.
According to a recent USA Today/Suffolk poll, only 36% of respondents support the House attempting to impeach the President, with 22% saying Congress should continue the impeachment inquiry but not remove the President, 37% saying the House should end the impeachment probe and 4% are undecided. 46% also report being in favor of convicting President Trump if impeached in the House, with 47% being against.
While these numbers are not exactly great for Trump either, they are terrible for House Democrats seeking to impeach Trump, an effort they have been salivating at ever since Trump won the presidential election of 2016. When looking to impeach a president, the number one thing you need is public support, which is why Adam Schiff had been leaking carefully selected excerpts of the highly secretive testimonies from people supposedly testifying against Trump. If the Democrats are unable to successfully raise people’s desire to impeach Trump, they will only come out of this effort as absolute losers.
Poll #2: Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows Trump’s approval rating at 46%.
Without a doubt, that number is not exactly spectacular for Trump, given his history in this particular poll. However, that number is far from the lowest it’s ever been and not even the lowest it’s been since the impeachment stuff began. As it stands, comparatively speaking, his approval rating is the same as Obama’s was at the same time in his own presidency. This is important to note because, while Trump has usually done better than Obama in recent months, being tied with Obama, who handily won his own re-election, is not a good thing for Democrats looking to unseat Trump come next election.
Impeachment won’t work, so their best bet would be to beat Trump at the polls. However, this is an uphill battle for them. None of their current candidates stands much of a chance against Trump at this point. And while we are a little over a year away from the 2020 election, so a lot can happen in that time, it’s unlikely things will improve much at all for Democrat hopefuls.
Poll #3: Most Americans believe government is the problem, not the solution.
In his inaugural address in 1981, President Ronald Reagan said: “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” In a recent Rasmussen poll, 59% of Americans agree with that statement.
This is important simply because of who the Democrats are and what they believe. They believe in expansion of government, government-run programs, government-run everything. They believe in the Marxist ideology of communism, even if they wouldn’t outright admit it, and every proposal they give is in an effort to expand government power and influence over the American people, rather than diminish it.
Everything from Medicare-for-All, regardless of whose version it is (and it literally cannot be afforded by taxing the rich even 100% of everything they have), to the Green New Deal to every single proposal by the Democrats is an attempt at growing the size and scope of the government – a government which 59% of Americans agree is the PROBLEM, not the solution to people’s problems.
Poll #4: Most likely voters believe most politicians want to expand the government more than the American people want.
In a similar, but older poll as the last one, we find 66% of likely U.S. voters believing that most politicians want the government to have more power and money than it already has. This one should really be common sense to most people: most politicians in the government are in it to enrich and empower themselves, not help other people. Regardless of what campaign promise or contribution any given politician might make, most will go into government not to actually help their communities and their voters but help themselves and their donors.
Government power often entices people and leaves them lusting after it. It’s for this reason that so many politicians break their promises so easily, quickly and often. The promises they made do not serve their selfish interests past the point of election. Making their communities wealthier and better does not help them retain power because that means more people are financially independent from the government. As long as people are dependent on the government, such politicians will remain in power for life.
Poll #5: Most voters believe government is too powerful.
In another Rasmussen poll that is similar in nature to the last two, we find that 58% of likely voters say that there is too much government power and too little individual freedom. We should note that this poll comes from December of 2018, so it is rather old, but considering how little changed the government’s size has been, I doubt current sentiment is all too different from these numbers.
But this is another poll that goes against what the Democrats wish. Again, the Democrats are all about increasing government power. But most voters believe it already is too powerful as it is and there should be more individual freedom than there is.
Poll #6: Most voters fear a government that is too powerful.
Quickly moving on to the next poll, we again find something similar to the last one. A Rasmussen poll from July of last year finds that 62% of likely voters believe that a government that is too powerful is more dangerous that one that is not powerful enough.
These last two polls really coincide with one another pretty well, I’d say. It is understood by most voters that a government that is too powerful is a bigger threat to people than a government that is not powerful enough. It is also widely believed by nearly as many voters that the government we currently have is too powerful – too big – for our own good. And the Democrats only seek to further expand the power of the government, not reduce it. Granted, many Republicans also seek the same thing, with few actually being able to do much at all to reduce its size and power (Trump’s trying with deregulation, but he can only do so much on his own), but the Democrats don’t even pretend they wish to reduce the size of the government.
Even when talking about our deficit and our national debt, they just try and place the blame on Trump rather than come up with an actual solution to the problem because they don’t care about this problem at all.
Poll #7: Most voters don’t trust the government with their tax money and want a smaller government.
Once again, we find a poll that tells us something similar to the last two. According to Rasmussen, 57% of likely voters want “a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes over a more active one with more services and higher taxes.”
This one comes from May of this year, so it’s not too old, but not that recent either. This also came around the time Democrat candidates were trying to outbid each other to try and see who could come up with the most expensive and government-power-increasing new system that would be marketed as being completely paid for by the infamous rich people of America. But as we are noticing, the trend is that more government expansion is not what most voters want.
Poll #8: Most Americans believe they are taxed more than their fair share.
A Rasmussen poll from March of 2019 finds that 57% of Americans “believe they are paying more than their fair share of taxes.” Now, obviously, this comes after the 2017 GOP tax cuts were passed and implemented, so people are not paying close to as much as they used to, but people believe they are paying more than they honestly should.
I believe that this comes in some part to Pelosi and Democrats trying to convince people that the Republican tax cuts were actually only tax cuts for the wealthy and most people’s taxes went up, but I don’t think that is much of a contributor here. Even if it was, it’s not like Democrats are promising to lower people’s taxes. We literally have Bernie Sanders trying to convince people that while he will be raising taxes on both the wealthy and middle-class Americans, that it would be okay because they would be “offset” elsewhere (which is a complete and utter lie).
Democrats never promise to lower taxes and that is an action only Republicans have done, even if some people naively and ignorantly believe their taxes were actually raised, not lowered (though they should be noticing the impact of the tax cuts from their paychecks being higher).
Poll #9: Most voters not convinced taxing the wealthy into oblivion will benefit the economy.
Rasmussen asked surveyors in February of 2019 what they thought about raising taxes on the rich and the impact it would have on the economy. 39% believe it would help the economy, 39% say it will hurt the economy and 14% say it won’t have any impact on the economy.
While this poll is not quite so devastating to Democrats as the last few have been, it does present a problem for them. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and virtually every other Democrat has proposed highly expensive and outright unaffordable new programs for a variety of things, which they argue will be fully or at least mostly paid for by the rich. However, just as many people are convinced that doing so would hurt the economy as there are who think that it would help it. Again, this is not something the Democrats would want to see.
Finally, we reach poll #10: 89% are proud to be an American, with 70% believing in putting America first.
There are few things that Democrats hate more than the United States of America, regardless of what they might try and argue. They heavily fault America and consider it to be a demon-spawn of a nation, ignoring the overall good it has done for its own people (in large part thanks to its own people) and for the world. They attack it for having allowed for slavery to be legal, despite the fact that virtually every other nation in the world has allowed for slavery and many countries in the Middle East still allow it to this day.
They fault it for its perceived discrimination but will ignore China arresting and often executing Christians, Muslims, Jews and political dissenters. They consider it a threat to the global climate despite the fact that Asia contains the world’s biggest polluters in China and India. So to find so many people being proud to be an American and so many people wishing to prioritize the health, stability and prosperity of our nation ahead of others goes against the globalist Left’s ideals.
These numbers, by the way, don’t come from Rasmussen either. They come from a Grinnell College poll that has Trump’s overall approval rating at 40% (43% with likely voters). It’s not exactly a right-wing poll.
This same poll also said that 87% of people are tired of the political circus we are all witnessing, 33% consider themselves to be politically incorrect, 41% say they are gun enthusiasts, 38% say they consider themselves feminists, 19% say they are socialists, 54% say they consider themselves to be “progressive” and 62% are afraid for the future (reasons not specified). It also says that 63% believe they are moving closer to their personal financial hopes and that 55% believe the economy is better now than it was at the beginning of 2017, when Trump took office.
All of these polls, to varying degrees, should really make Democrats afraid. Impeachment is nowhere near as popular as they would want it to be in order for it to be successful; Trump’s job as POTUS is mostly good; most Americans believe the government is the problem, not the solution; that most politicians want to expand the size and scope of the government; most voters believe the government is presently too powerful; that such a powerful government is a threat to its people and to individual liberty; most voters are distrustful of the way politicians spend tax payers’ money; that people pay more than their fair share of taxes; that taxing the wealthy to poverty will not be helpful to the economy (this is taking the 39% of those who say it will hurt the economy and the 14% who say it wouldn’t do anything to it); and most people are proud to be an American and wish for our leaders to prioritize the country and put America first, as Trump often says.
None of these things are good news for Democrats as they go into 2020. I hope and believe that these numbers will hurt the Democrats completely, as well as this phony and illegitimate impeachment effort they are hellbent on crusading on.

The idea of impeaching Donald Trump surfaced before he even took office. Before the Russian collusion narrative took center-stage, all the Left could talk about was impeaching Donald Trump. And even the Russian collusion narrative was all in the efforts to get rid of Trump in the first place. Impeaching Donald Trump has been the chief goal of the Democrats ever since then and their taking the House of Representatives was essentially a promise to everyone, but particularly to their extremist base, that they would get around to impeaching Donald Trump, getting his tax returns and just about everything bad they could do to him in the name of “justice”.
The 116th Congress convened on January 3rd, 2019, with the Democrats as the majority in the House. It’s been a little under 300 days and they still haven’t gotten Trump’s tax returns and they are only now beginning to even talk about a serious impeachment inquiry (though Pelosi is refusing to bring it to a floor vote, so it’s not actually very likely to happen). Despite their best efforts, they haven’t been able to even try to begin impeachment proceedings and everything they’re doing at this very moment is more akin to a shadow trial than an official one.
But however much the Democrats in Washington might be salivating at the idea of impeaching Donald Trump, it’s not even close to being an important issue according to a recent Emerson poll.
Now, it should be mentioned that the Emerson poll is only regarding Iowa, but considering this is a rustbelt state, you can probably guess the sentiment for most other states are not too dissimilar.
According to the poll, only 6% of voters say that impeachment is the most important issue.
“The most important issue for voters in Iowa in deciding for whom to vote for president is the economy at 33%, followed by healthcare at 19% and social issues at 10%. Impeachment ranked 7 out of 9 at 6%, ahead of education at 5% and foreign policy at 3%. Among Democrats, the most important issue is health care at 25%, followed by the economy at 17% and the environment at 14%. The majority of Republicans (55%) identify the economy as the most important issue, followed by immigration at 14%. Independents are split between the economy (27%) and healthcare (24%),” says the poll.
In other words, what is most important to voters are issues that THEY CARE ABOUT AND WOULD MOST DIRECTLY INFLUENCE THEM, not getting rid of the President of the United States in a hate-filled coup d’état. The most important issues are things that most people are generally concerned with: the economy, healthcare, social issues, the environment, immigration, etc. They care about things that will affect them the most, not a sham of an impeachment.
But these numbers aren’t the only bad numbers for Democrats. While impeachment is not even remotely close to an important issue in the eyes of Iowa voters, the truth is that the issue is not much more important for Democrats in the state.
According to pollster Spencer Kimball, “The Democrats have some work to do in Iowa convincing voters that impeachment is a top priority of Congress; 67% of Democrats in Iowa support impeaching the president, but only 10% identify it as the most important issue in deciding their vote for president.”
67% is usually a good number to find in polls that one agrees with, but not in this case, at least for Democrats. If a full 33% DISAGREE WITH IMPEACHMENT, that is far too many dissenters in the party.
Keep in mind that the Left is thoroughly convinced that the vast majority of Americans support their attempts at impeaching the President. With heavily-skewed and biased polls like the ones from Fox News that only parrot that belief, one can’t exactly blame them for thinking this way, at least too much.
But 33% of Democrats being AGAINST impeachment in Iowa, that only shows the sort of sentiment that is likely fairly similar in the rest of the country. And even among Democrats who agree with impeachment, only 10% see it as a top issue, which is what the Democrats are running on.
The 2020 presidential election, for the Democrats, will largely only be about getting rid of Donald Trump because they hate him. Yes, the candidates will bring up all these other issues when it suits them or when they have to talk about them during debates or townhalls, but the chief end of their campaigns will not be to listen to the voters and take care of issues; it will be to get rid of Trump. Even during the debates, they couldn’t avoid talking about getting rid of Trump.
For Democrats in Washington, impeaching Trump is at the top of their priorities. But for the vast majority of people around the country, it isn’t, even among registered Democrats who support impeachment.
Again, only 10% of these Democrats say it’s at the top of their priorities. This is an indication that 90% of registered Democrats (at least in Iowa) would want the focus to be elsewhere and an indication that going full-throttle on this issue only serves to appease them, not their voters and certainly not the American people.
But what’s more, Donald Trump actually leads the two frontrunners on the Democrat Party:
“In hypothetical head to head matchups, Trump has a slight advantage over Warren and Biden: 51% to 49%, while Sanders carries a 2 point advantage over Trump with 51% to 49%; all three match-ups are within the polls margin of error. (n=888, +/-3.2%)”
While it’s all within the margin of error, meaning that it really could be the other way around for all match-ups or the leads could be bigger, the fact that it’s even that close at all should be a warning sign for Democrats. Not only are their impeachment efforts not seen as priority by their voters, but Trump is nowhere near as unpopular as they would want him to be in order to go through impeachment proceedings.
Of course, other polls will still show Trump being heavily opposed (Emerson poll didn’t show the sample of voters down party lines, so it’s unknown how many surveyed were Democrat vs. Republican or Independent), but as we have seen in the past, there isn’t much reason to trust such polls, knowing the tactics of oversampling Democrats and passing that off as general voter sentiment.
What I’m trying to get across is the fact that impeachment is simply not a winning issue for the Democrats. Even if they eventually manage to impeach Trump, it would go to the Senate, where it would most likely be acquitted, which the President would most definitely say is a sign of vindication and exoneration (considering he did nothing wrong to be impeached in the first place, I say it would be exoneration). If this poll is any indication for other states, particularly purple states, that puts Democrats in such states in peril.
As I have stated in many previous articles, voting one way or the other will draw them ire and the potential to lose their seats, and therefore, cause the Democrats to lose the House in 2020. Despite Nancy’s statement that it didn’t matter if they did lose the House, I don’t actually believe her for a number of reasons, as I detailed in my article discussing it.
The Democrats, in pushing for impeachment, are in a lose-lose situation. That is exacerbated by the fact that they don’t recognize they are in such a situation in the first place. They have convinced themselves that just about everyone in the country supports them and agrees with them. They believe they are seen as incapable of doing wrong, so they won’t let go of this impeachment stuff.
And it will most likely cost them everything.

As I have stated in the past, the Ukraine story is nothing more than a revamped version of the Russian collusion narrative, filled with nothing but lies and smears against Trump, accusing him of things he didn’t do, like trying to get “dirt” on Biden, which is a current Democrat talking point regarding the situation. Everything about it, from the whistleblower’s strange report to his connections to Democrats like Adam Schiff and Joe Biden, reeks of a not-so-silent coup attempt by the Democrats.
But despite every negative thing under the sun that the Democrats can throw at Trump, regardless of the circumstance or the setting, the President enjoys pretty normal approval ratings.
Looking at Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, we find that Donald Trump’s approval rating sits at 50%, which is rather normal for his administration. Compare that to even just a week ago, when his approval rating stood at 47%, also despite the negative coverage and the constant attacks from the press and from Democrats.
The President had enjoyed a recent high of 53% approval, around the time the Ukraine call “scandal” was brought up by Democrats and shortly before Trump released the transcript to the call, showing that there was no actual quid pro quo, nor any other type of crime that can be pointed out, despite what Democrats and the media might try to convey (likely a part of the reason as to why Pelosi decided not to have a formal impeachment inquiry vote in the House).
Following that, his approval rating dipped down a bit, falling to a recent low of 46%, but far from terrible, or even his record-low in the Rasmussen poll of 39%.
Considering it is currently sitting at 50% and around that area, it’s pretty easy to tell that this latest attempt at destroying Donald Trump is yet another one of the Democrats’ many, many duds. Russian hacking didn’t work, Russian collusion didn’t work, Stormy Daniels didn’t work, campaign finance violations accusations didn’t work, calling him “Hitler” hasn’t worked, and now, the Ukraine call “scandal” isn’t working.
And with the strategies that Democrats are incorporating in their campaigns, that of trashing Trump and promising to get rid of him, likely won’t work either. Moody’s Analytics has Trump winning in a landslide in all three of their models if things maintain course (with one showing Trump narrowly losing only if Democrat turnout is high and the economy is in the toilet, as in, if it crashes by 12% shortly before Election Day).
There is still a little over a year before the 2020 election happens, and a lot can happen in that span of time. It’s still not entirely clear who the Democrat nominee will be, with Biden seemingly losing some ground to Elizabeth Warren. However, regardless of who the Democrat nominee will be, if things stay relatively as they are today, even if just a little bit worse (Moody’s predicts that even a 9% crash in the stock market would still give Trump the win, even if it’s a bit closer than the other models, which show Trump winning by a bigger landslide than he did in 2016), it’s more likely than not that Donald Trump will come out of the 2020 election having been re-elected as President of the United States, which will most definitely send the media into a frenzy.
And it’s pretty clear, at this point, that if all the Democrats have is nothing but lies and accusations, that will definitely not be enough to destroy Trump, no matter what the Left might want. There’s a reason why even some Leftists believe that impeaching Trump will lead to his re-election in 2020. It’s not what Americans want, regardless of what the heavily-skewed Fox News poll might show.
President Trump is popular, even more so than Obama at the same point in his own presidency, who only had 45% approval at the time. That is a fact that no Leftist wants to acknowledge, even if doing so is to their detriment.

With the Democrat Party’s efforts to insist to the American people that President Trump committed impeachable offenses during his phone call with Ukraine (despite the fact the transcript is public and anyone with an internet connection can tell nothing of the sort occurred), Fox News, which always has Trump’s numbers in the gutter, released a recent poll that said 51% of Americans wanted President Trump impeached and removed from office.
However, there are a number of problems with that poll.
For starters, the sample size is rather small, with 1,003 registered voters. That’s not incredibly small, but smaller than others such as Rasmussen, who tend to have 1,500 registered voters.
But the most important aspect is the sample of political affiliation. It’s not hard to get 51% saying Trump needs to be impeached and removed from office when you poll 48% Democrats, 40% Republicans and 12% Independents.
There are far more Democrats than Republicans or Independents in this poll (likely on purpose) for this to really be an accurate belief for the majority of American people.
Literally all you need is all Democrats and a couple Never Trump Republicans and Left-leaning Independents to achieve 51%.
And the kicker? The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points. In other words, it could easily still be 48% of Americans want Trump impeached and removed from office, which interestingly enough, is the same percentage of Democrats polled in this survey.
Obviously, Fox News is trying to tell Republicans to abandon Trump, as “a majority of Americans favor impeachment and removal” of Trump. But when you get into the details of the survey, you find it to be nothing but a farce.
Oversampling Democrats is what all fake news polls do every single time to make the numbers appear to be better or worse, depending on the narrative they want the poll to drive.
It’s what multiple polls did throughout 2016, when some polls had Hillary ahead of Trump by DOUBLE DIGITS at the very least and running away with the election. Obviously, that didn’t happen.
Rasmussen was the only one that accurately predicted the 2016 election and in their survey, while Trump’s numbers are down a tad, it’s nothing major.
Trump’s approval currently stands at 47%. While that’s lower than the low-50s that Trump tends to enjoy, that is actually relatively normal for the President.
It’s necessary to note that this is a daily tracking poll of Trump’s approval, which will naturally tend to be rather volatile from day to day. Just two days ago, it was at 45% and it’s been hovering in the high-40s since the beginning of the month a couple of weeks ago.
And this is all coming off of the Democrats’ latest attempt at smearing Trump, with suggesting, without evidence, that Trump broke the law during his July 25th phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
No doubt, the allegation has damaged Trump a little bit, but nowhere close to what the fake news media suggests or would want to be real.
Again, the Fox News survey sampled far more Democrats than Republicans or Independents. And even then, they barely got a majority out of the total number.
I know very well that the Democrats and their voters want to get rid of Donald Trump. Impeachment is something they’ve been wanting heavily since Trump won in the first place, before the Russian collusion narrative was even formed. They wanted him gone just for winning and that’s still the case, even if they fall back on Ukraine or Russia being the reason.
But the rest of America doesn’t seem to be with them, considering that only 39% of Independents said Trump should be impeached and removed and 47% disagreed IN THIS VERY POLL. My guess would be that the real number of people who want Trump impeached and removed from office is somewhere in the mid-to-high-30s or low-40s, if all things are equal.
The reason for this line of thinking, apart from the obvious oversampling and poll-manipulating tactics used by Fox News, is that Rasmussen poll.
47% is, again, pretty normal for Trump. Heck, despite everything being thrown at him, he still enjoys a better approval rating than Obama did at the same point in his own presidency.
In October 2011, President Barack Obama’s approval rating stood at only 42%. And he didn’t have the media with over 90% negative news coverage of him spreading fake news stories about trying to dig up dirt on his political opponents and working with foreign governments to meddle in a presidential election (ironic that he did those things, at least for 2016).
Trump has the radical Leftist fake news media trying to destroy him, Fox News hosts who hate his guts and will lie about him just as badly as the rest of the Left, Never Trump Republicans like Mitt Romney pushing for impeachment, and still, despite all of that, he is a more popular president than Barack Obama.
Is it any wonder, at this point, why trust in the media is at such an all-time low? When the people whose job is to report reality are trying, instead, to shape it and convince people of a fantasy, what credibility do those people have? What reason does anyone have to trust what Chuck Todd or Jim Acosta or Rachel Maddow or Anderson Cooper or David Brooks or Shepherd Smith or Neil Cavuto or any of these bozos have to say when all they do is attempt to deceive their audience with poorly-researched pieces, opinion-laden “news” articles and minimal effort in verifying the credibility of the sources they use? Or when they oversample Democrats BY 8 PERCENTAGE POINTS MORE THAN REPUBLICANS IN A SURVEY ABOUT OVERALL AMERICAN VOTER SENTIMENT?!
The hiring of Donna Brazile and Paul Ryan are quite symbolic of the kind of organization Fox News is: Never Trump, far-Leftist, Washington Establishment bullcrap.
Without people like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Judge Jeanine Pirro, Fox News would sink to the ground.
And they would completely deserve it.

Despite the fact that throughout the summer, with the Mueller report having found no Trump-Russia collusion and the narrative essentially having died, the fake news media switched tactics to try and intimidate people into believing that recession was right around the corner and it was the end of this economic boom in an effort to try and hurt Trump.
The problem with that is, even though such reporting can hurt the stock market, the fake news media can’t report a recession into existence. Several factors have to contribute and none of them really showed signs of a recession. An economic cooldown, at most, but nothing close to a recession.
And with September 2019’s jobs numbers, we can still see how good of an economy we have.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. economy created 136,000 jobs in September. A relatively low number, at least in comparison to others that we have seen in the Trump economy, but still good nonetheless. It’s also likely that the number would’ve been higher if General Motors workers hadn’t gone on strike, preventing that company from being able to hire many new people.
What’s more, the jobs numbers were revised up for July and August, totaling 45,000 new jobs added to the numbers of both months (159,000 to 166,000 for July and 130,000 to 168,000 for August), meaning even more jobs created over that span, but slightly dipping for September.
But in any case, that’s not all. The unemployment rate is now sitting at 3.5%, down from 3.7% the previous month. The last time it sat at 3.5% was on December of 1969. The only thing that was relatively negative in the report was wage growth, where average hourly earnings were down by 1 cent after having risen by 11 cents the previous month.
But regardless, the unemployment rate is at the lowest level it has been since December 1969, matching that rate exactly, which is an impressive feat.
But that’s not all. The African American unemployment rate held steady at 5.5%, but for African American men, it fell to 5.4%, which is the lowest level since December of 1973, when it was at 5.2%. The unemployment rate for African American women, on the other hand, went slightly up to 4.6%, up by 0.2 percentage points.
And when it comes to Hispanic Americans, the unemployment rate is sitting at a new record-low of 3.9%, the first time in American history when the Hispanic unemployment rate fell below 4% (at least recorded history by the BLS since 1973).
As a matter of fact, President Trump is the only president in history to see multiple months where Hispanic unemployment was below 5%. The only other time before Trump’s presidency that Hispanic unemployment was below 5% was in 2006, when Bush was President. However, that was short-lived, as that was the only month in recorded history up to that point when it was that low and it only proceeded to climb as the great recession followed.
But ever since Trump took office, Hispanic unemployment never rose above 5.5%, which was the number it was sitting at when Trump was inaugurated. The following month, March of 2017, the unemployment rate for Hispanics dropped by 0.5 percentage points. Trump also saw 23 total months when Hispanic unemployment rate was below 5%, with 18 of those months being the last 18 months so far.
But all of these figures really show the type of picture – the kind of reality – that the Left does not want people to see and know about. The Trump economy is strong. Very strong. The reason 2020 Democrats have stayed as far away as possible from discussing the economy is because there is nothing but good news for Trump there.
No other President has achieved what Trump has achieved, Democrat or Republican, at least when it comes to Hispanic unemployment. And again, African American unemployment (at least for men) is the lowest since 1973 and general unemployment is the lowest since late 1969.
Regardless of what the media might try and report, they do not report on reality. They only try and shape it. Similar to the polls that say that every Democrat candidate beats Trump (what a load), the fake news media’s reports regarding anything are total crap.
They mistakenly believe that the strength of the economy is tied strictly to the stock market. And while it is a considerable part of it, short-term downtrends in the stock market do not mean downtrends in the economy as a whole. The unemployment rate has been going up and down throughout the Trump presidency, but the trend is largely down.
The economy has been booming over the past couple of years thanks to Trump’s economic policies of deregulation and thanks to the tax cuts. These are things that, try as they might, the fake news media cannot control with fake news reports.
Here’s hoping these trends continue to show throughout the rest of Trump’s presidency and beyond.

With the Democrats jumping the shark with this latest attempt to smear President Trump as having committed a crime (none can be found and they have to make stuff up) and seeking to launch an impeachment inquiry before either the Ukraine phone call transcript or the whistleblower complaint were released, it’s quite obvious that Nancy Pelosi has completely lost control of the Democrat Party in the House of Representatives, which is the reason Trump tweeted that she was no longer the House Speaker (which the humorless Left considered to be an official declaration from him that he doesn’t have the power to do and not a joke at Pelosi’s expense).
Along this decision to launch an impeachment inquiry that will ultimately backfire on the Left harder than the Russian collusion hoax (just as little evidence of wrongdoing and tons of made-up bullcrap made to smear the President won’t get rid of Trump, I can assure you), Pelosi told The Texas Tribune CEO and co-founder Evan Smith that it didn’t matter if the Democrats lost the House in 2020.
Smith first said: “I want to ask you… heading into the next election cycle, do you have any anxiety at all about any of the stuff we’re talking about or anything that we’re not talking about impacting your ability to hold control of the House in 2020?”
Pelosi replied: “Doesn’t matter… Our first responsibility is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Yeah, right. If that were what you were seeking to do, you wouldn’t be launching an impeachment inquiry based on a hearsay report… before that report was even made public.
She continued: “People say you have to take a political risk doing that. That doesn’t matter. That doesn’t matter because we cannot have a President of the United States undermining his oath of office, his loyalty to his oath of office, undermining our national security, and undermining the integrity of our elections. Our elections are the fundamental point of our democracy.”
Okay, two things. First, we are not a democracy. We are a republic. Unfortunately, those two terms are used so interchangeably, even by Pelosi later on in the interview, that most people have completely forgotten what the difference is and think they are the same thing. They are not.
Second, where was this “patriotism” when Obama had the FBI spy on Trump? Where was it when Obama let 4 Americans die in Benghazi? Where was it when Obama’s IRS began to spy on conservatives? Where was it when Obama’s DOJ gave guns to the cartel? Where was it when Obama promised Medvedev that he would “have more flexibility” after the 2012 election?
Every single charge the Democrats throw at Trump has been committed by Barack Obama. Every lie they spread about Trump is a truth about Obama. Democrats didn’t care as Obama superseded the Constitution when he used an EO to bring DACA into law or when he made a nuclear deal with Iran without having Congress ratify it.
When a Democrat acts like a dictator, these people have no problem. When a Republican is in office, the Democrats will lie and say he is a dictator.
But in any case, allow me to get to the main point of this article. To reiterate, Nancy Pelosi says that it doesn’t matter if the Democrats lose the House in 2020 if Trump gets impeached. I really only have one question: if impeachment of Trump is as popular as some polls would have us believe, such as a CBS poll which says that 55% of people approve of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, why would the Democrats be in trouble of losing the House in 2020?
If impeaching Trump is as demanded as the Left claims it is, as the fake news polls claim it is, then how are the Democrats the ones at risk in 2020? You would think that if impeachment is as highly-desired by the vast majority of the American populace that the party moving forward with impeachment would be a lock-in to win the White House, the Senate, and keep the House, if not grow their majority.
Pelosi, who only a week or so ago claimed there was no way a Democrat wouldn’t win the White House in 2020, is now accepting the fact that there is a possibility the Democrats would lose the House come 2020?
These people aren’t as confident that Trump will be impeached and defeated as they might claim to be. In fact, if Al Green is anything to go by, the only reason they are looking to impeach Trump is because they KNOW he will win reelection.
While it only takes a simple majority in the House to impeach Trump, which the Democrats have, impeachment does not mean removal from office. It also doesn’t mean that Trump can’t run for reelection. The removal of Trump would have to be the Senate’s job, where a two-thirds majority, or 67 votes, would be required. And given the composition of the current Senate, that would mean a third of Republicans would have to vote in favor of removal, which is unlikely, even with traitors like Romney, Mike Lee and the others who voted against Trump’s National Emergency declaration to build the wall.
So even if the House does vote in favor of impeaching Trump, that doesn’t mean he’s defeated. It taints his presidency for sure, but it’s not the complete and utter defeat that the Democrats would want.
And again, I highly doubt that the impeachment of Trump is what most people want, as people are reading into these polls. If it were as demanded by people as these polls might claim, the Democrats would not stand to lose anything in 2020.
If you remember, I used to say that the reason Pelosi was trying to hold back against the radical Leftists in her party demanding for impeachment was because this would put Democrats in swing states at risk of losing their seats if they were forced to vote on impeachment. If you remember from an article last month where I discussed what would likely happen if Democrats were to seek to impeach Trump (granted, this was before the Russian-collusion 2.0 story came up), Democrat voters in purple states were at risk of losing voters regardless of what way they voted. Simply being forced to vote for it would mean risking their seats.
But now, Pelosi has either succumbed to the pressure from the radical Leftists in her party or she has gone full-blown TDS (likely a bit of both).
Now, launching an impeachment inquiry into Trump is not the same as holding the actual impeachment vote itself. It could also be that Pelosi is simply trying to buy some time by having an impeachment inquiry, that way they can attack Trump and she can give the radicals a little something to chew on for the time being. But I don’t know for sure why Pelosi has decided to do this, particularly given the timing of the entire thing.
It’s one thing if there is an allegation against Trump and there is a whistleblower complaint (that is nothing but hearsay, but let’s pretend it’s relatively legit for the time being) that could then be made public. But launching an impeachment inquiry before people even know the reason for it apart from fake news reports is… surprisingly short-sighted from Pelosi.
Although, the more you think about it, with what we know from the NYT, that AG Bill Barr is also trying to work with Australia (who also had a hand in the 2016 smear of Trump), it becomes clear that the purpose behind all of this the Democrats simply have no other choice. Barr might be inching closer and closer to finding the many skeletons in the Democrats' closet which could absolutely destroy them come 2020. They failed in destroying him and now, that failure might come back to bite them, if Barr finds and releases what I think he will find and release. At the end of the day, all this is is a cover up of 2016 and obstruction of justice.
But regardless of what may be the purpose behind this impeachment inquiry, one thing is certain: they are not as confident as they pretend they are that this will get rid of Trump for good. To reiterate, if this is truly what the vast majority of the American people wanted, there would be no risk for the Democrats in the House in 2020, or any other public office. Pelosi could’ve just as easily replied by saying: “I won’t even entertain that thought as it’s not possible” or simply allude to the impossibility of Democrats coming up massive losers here. But she didn’t. She acknowledged the Democrats could lose and lose big.
If this truly was the course the American people wanted to take, the Democrats would only stand to gain from launching an impeachment inquiry. I think Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrats, are seriously mischaracterizing what the will of the American people is. Not that I can blame them, with fake news polls showing what they are showing. The Democrats live and die by polls telling them they are winning and they are special. If a poll essentially gives them the green light to begin an impeachment inquiry or even formal proceedings, even if it’s nothing but fake news, these people will roll with it. They are that self-involved and narcissistic that they believe they can do no wrong and everything they do is seen as perfection by the majority of people.
But reality has to set in at one point or another. Likely, that point will be November 4th, 2020, the day after the election when a winner will have been decided.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”
