Teh Squeaky Wheel
Wednesday salutations, Wheelizens!
Maaaaaan…the news makes my head spin anymore; so many scandals and outrages. Which makes me wonder what sort of worse mischief is being obfuscated. (It’s a bit like trying to ignore a magician’s misdirection in order to observe what the other hand is doing…)
It’s almost as though our political-media complex is up to no good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hi, Fatwa. Good morning, GN!
I think the Dems move forward and impeach Trump. They’d hold off and let the election occur if they thought they had a strong enough candidate to win, but they don’t.
It’s not a bad bet. 1) Anything that Trump wanted to do is delayed while this plays out. 2) They can continue to play the high road/principled card that as sad and as difficult as this is, they are doing it for the country because no matter what, the Left has to look like they are on the side of good. 3) The House impeaches and then it’s not a done deal that the Senate doesn’t convict -- the Republican establishment hates Trump only slightly less than the Dems. Trump is his own worse enemy and he can’t keep his mouth shut -- he responds disproportionately to any and every slight -- if he becomes unhinged, that provides cover for Republicans to convict. 4) The odds of a Dem, even those currently running, can beat Pence are considerably higher than going against Trump. 5) If the Senate doesn’t convict, then the Left’s virtue signaling can continue with “we did our best for the good of the country, but the Repubs blocked us” with the thought that that helps them in Senate races.
If the media weren’t totally in the bag for the Left, none of this would work, but there you go. Regardless, the Left has kicked America down the road to ruin. I don’t see us recovering from this.
Hai, Sven --
I wish I could rebut the above, but it’s depressingly plausible.
To Hell with both major parties; their rat-bastard elected and appointed officials are liberty-hating vermin.
Huh. Where are the rest of the Russian assets today?
Checking our power availability situation -- we are in the yellow zone -- Monitored -- PSPS shutoff possible in less than 48 hours. Some of the areas around us are in the 24-hour zone.
Yeah, I expect we’ll get it this time, but on the plus side, at least we have power the night before unlike last time. Thursday could be bad, but I expect Friday will be worse if the weather predictions hold up.
Sad. Katie Hill is being investigated for ethics violations. Sad.
