As if the Left didn’t have enough things to be perpetually angry about, this week has been particularly tough for Democrats, and even though I am not supposed to allow my heart to rejoice when my enemy stumbles, I am going to be at least a teensy-weensy bit happy about recent developments, particularly as some are coupled with rather good news.
Let us begin with Garfield’s least favorite day: Monday, when the Democrats began the apparently semester-long process of running an Iowa caucus and declaring a winner.
Even though a winner should have been declared by that night (and the Republicans had no trouble at all calling the caucus in favor of Trump), it’s actually been a few days and the last thing I remember about it was someone saying that the process was about 97% done, with Bernie and Buttigieg being extremely close to one another, but with Buttigieg having a slight lead (so far). What I would like to point out is how extremely dubious this process has been.
It definitely didn’t help that the Democrats used a voting app developed by a company literally called Shadow Inc., which was founded by a woman whose husband is a senior strategist for Pete Buttigieg, who is coincidentally (or maybe not so coincidentally) one of the two most likely winners of this caucus. The app, reportedly, was a complete mess with not showing everyone who was on the ballot all too clearly, leading some people to have to vote for someone else instead of their favored candidate.
Now, to be fair to the company that literally sounds like they would be an evil corporation fighting Superman, the app wasn’t the only malfunction for the Democrats throughout the night. According to the Daily Caller: “An Iowa precinct secretary was just on the phone with CNN, got off hold with the Iowa Democratic Party to report his results, and was hung up on [by the DNC].”
So there were technical errors and human errors at play. Unsurprisingly, this led to Bernie supporters, who knew that going into the caucus their preferred candidate had a massive lead over everyone else, to get angry and storm out of the caucus, according to Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner.
He wrote: “So Sanders had more than twice as much support as any other candidate at [a particular precinct], but due to some savvy dealmaking and complicated delegate math, they ended up in a 5-way tie for delegates, one apiece. And they [Bernie supporters] were not happy.”
Of course, this led to much mockery online, with many on the Right making the point that “if Democrats can’t properly operate their own caucus and it’s this much of a mess, how can they be trusted to run our healthcare?” and things like that. Of course, given the shadiness of the entire thing, and given how blatantly obvious the DNC is in trying to keep Bernie from winning the nomination, I think it has less to do with horrendous incompetence and more to do with trying to rig things in their favor, delaying results until they are either more favorable to them or until Sanders comes out as the winner (which is the most likely scenario but Buttigieg still has a bit of a lead in delegate count, so it could go either way 97% in) but he has next to no momentum going into the New Hampshire caucus next week.
Now, I must say that I do not have any tangible evidence of such rigging of things. I wouldn’t put it past the Democrats to be THIS incompetent; it is within the realm of possibility. So I won’t say that they definitely are trying to rig this thing, but one cannot blame me for at least being suspicious of the way things are being handled. Their desire to keep Bernie away from the nomination is no real secret. That, paired with the fact they are employing a voting app run by someone with ties to one particular candidate, and that particular candidate is being reported as leading in delegate numbers, possibly rendering him the winner of the caucus and you can’t fault people for thinking the fix is in.
Biden is an extremely weak candidate who only looks weaker and weaker as time goes on, so Mayor Pete might be the establishment’s replacement for Biden.
Regardless, I’ve spoken plenty about this particular catastrophe for the Democrats and I wish to move on. Final thoughts, though: I cannot help but laugh at either the blatant rigging of the Democrats’ own primaries or the mind-numbing incompetence of an entire political party.
Now, let’s move on to something I’ve previously covered, and actually wrote about yesterday, so I don’t have too much to say about this: the President’s State of the Union address.
As I mentioned in my previous article, Trump destroyed the Democrats by simply pointing out his great success as POTUS and excoriated them for the dangerous socialist policies they wish to espouse such as the “sanctuary city” policies, the Medicare-for-All plan that will kick hundreds of millions of Americans off of their current health insurance, among other things.
He highlighted the booming economy that we are experiencing, and on that particular night, helped a little girl to receive a scholarship so that she could go to the school of her choice instead of a garbage government school, applauded the services of a man tragically killed by Soleimani while also celebrating the terrorist’s death (as well as al-Baghdadi’s death), and overall made the Democrats look like petty fools, with the queen of the fools sitting just behind him and to the left of him, when she decided to tear the speech in half (which could get her a criminal referral, but she’s a Democrat and they get away with whatever they want, so don’t expect anything to come out of this).
The State of the Union address highlighted the failures of the previous administration and accentuated the failures of the current Democrats by virtue of having Trump being the one to deliver the address. They failed to beat him in 2016; failed to get rid of him for 3 years, running on crap like the Russia hoax, campaign finance “violations”, a bad past with a porn star and most recently, with a Ukraine phone call that is out there for anyone to read and see that no criminal activity or intent was present in what the Democrats are calling a “constitutional crisis” (though they call literally everything Trump does a “constitutional crisis” so that term is quickly losing its luster); and were one night away from experiencing yet another failure: failing to remove him from office.
Which brings me to what happened on Wednesday, with the Senate vote to acquit the President of the United States for life.
This one, unfortunately, is not quite as bad as I wish it would’ve been for the Democrats thanks to the actions of a single man: Pierre Delecto aka Mitt Romney.
From the beginning of the impeachment sham, it was clear Trump was not going to be convicted of anything and that became more apparent as time went on. The Democrats and the media, however, were somehow convinced that there was a real possibility that Trump would be convicted. Some polls attempted to show that “a majority” of Americans wanted to remove Trump (but there was clear oversampling of Democrats in those polls, so they were fake news) and the media, with those dirty polls, deluded themselves into believing Republicans would be scared to the point of removing Trump to save their own careers.
But as time went on, even their own polls began to betray them, with people losing interest in impeachment and less people wanting to remove (again, according to their own polls). The Democrats failed to make any sort of convincing argument, particularly because the transcripts were released and available for anyone to see (though I suspect the Democrats didn’t expect Trump to release the transcripts, so that threw a wrench into their plans) and because the whistleblower, the guy who supposedly kickstarted this whole process, was never called in despite being the initial accuser of the President.
Of course, the Democrats COULDN’T call in the whistleblower because he had obvious ties to Adam Schiff and because it was made clear that the IG, an Obama holdover, changed the rules for whistleblowing from having to be a first-hand source to allowing for second-hand information to be considered valid whistleblowing, so calling in the whistleblower would’ve left the Democrats very vulnerable. All of these things made the impeachment even more shady and made it tougher for the obviously corrupt Democrats to try and convince people that Trump was the corrupt one.
Now, there is far more to the impeachment topic, such as the Democrats blocking the Republicans from calling in their own witnesses, Democrats only being able to bring up two extremely vague articles of impeachment and passing them both in an entirely partisan manner (with votes against impeachment having been bipartisan), Nancy holding the articles to try and get McConnell to do what she wants in a Senate trial (which was foolish from the start, but is about on par with this woman’s intelligence) and the Democrats wanting more witnesses despite the fact that they had every opportunity to call in as many witnesses as they wanted in the House if they didn’t rush impeachment like they did just so they could impeach Trump by Christmas. The entire thing was an exercise in futility and marred in corruption and stupidity, but that is the Democrat Party’s MO, isn’t it?
As a result of all the tomfoolery going on here, the Senate voted to acquit the President for life on both charges, with the first article of impeachment – abuse of power – receiving a 52-48 vote (with Pierre being the only Republican voting to convict, making him the first idiot senator ever to convict a president of his own party) and with the second article of impeachment – obstruction of Congress – receiving a 53-47 vote, falling WAY short of the 67 votes the Democrats needed to remove Trump by 19 votes and 20 votes respectively.
So the Democrats made themselves look like idiots at best and cheaters at worst on Monday, petty and anti-American fools on Tuesday and pathetic failures on Wednesday who are, in all likelihood, going to suffer major losses come November as a result of this impeachment sham (coupled with the fact that not a single Democrat presidential candidate has any hope of beating Trump, especially if the Democrats steal the nomination away from Bernie again, thus angering his base once again).
The only week that will be worse than this one for Democrats will be the week following Trump’s re-election.
