Hating Trump traps them

The frustration President Donald John Trump brings to liberals amuses me because he is not using a magic wand or superpowers to defeat them. He is using their own self-confidence to bring him down. They are so obsessed with defeating him that they have entered a losing streak so entrenched that even drafting Baker Mayfield would not end it.

The shutdown is only the latest in the battles pitched and the battles lost.

Jennifer Haberkorn of the Los Angeles Times asked, "How much longer can Mitch McConnell sit it out?"

Forever, because as Marc Thiessen of the Washington Post wrote, "This is the stupidest government shutdown ever."

He wrote, "The $5.7 billion the president is demanding — precisely 0.0998 percent of the total federal budget. In Washington, that is considered a rounding error.

"Worse, Democrats are doing it over a border wall strikingly similar to one that they almost unanimously supported just five years ago. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., now says that 'a wall is an immorality,' back in 2013, she supported a bill that required the construction of 700 miles of border fencing."

Thiessen, who markets himself as a conservative, thinks Democrats have the upper hand.

They do not because this is, as he put it, the stupidest shutdown ever but not for the reason he gave.

The money is small but the difference is big. President Trump is fighting to change America's open borders policy in which immigration laws are ignored and defied to one of sealing the border.

Most Americans oppose open borders which is why politicians for decades have lied about their support of the wall. Pelosi. Schumer. The Family Bush. All of them.

Donald John Trump has not lied. He will shut the border down.

President Trump has the upper hand in this because the partial shutdown hurts the Washington Establishment more than it hurts his supporters. By and large, we do not work for the government.

His supporters are not feeling the effects, which is why Haberkorn wants Mitch McConnell to intervene and end the nightmare $150,000-a-year GS-15s missing a payment on their Audi.

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has gotten Congress out of a lot of political jams in the past decade, including other shutdowns, fiscal cliffs and funding disputes," Haberkorn wrote.

"But he's ceded control over the latest Washington stalemate to President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y."

McConnell has ceded nothing.

He controls the Senate. At the proper time, he will act. Right now, Pelosi and Schumer are beclowning themselves and he is enjoying the show.

President Trump is having a good old time, too.

Haberkorn is beside herself. She wrote, "Democrats say the Senate majority leader has 'abdicated' his responsibility and handed the keys to the castle to Trump..."

Hahaha.

Democrats say.

Not Republicans, Democrats.

Donald John Trump is the president of the United States. He is the chief executive. The 535 voting members of Congress are the board of directors.

Trump has the upper hand.

But the poll says...

"About half of voters, or 47 percent, blame Trump for the shutdown, according to a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll. A third of respondents blame Democrats in Congress, and 5 percent say it rests with congressional Republicans," she wrote.

Blame?

Try credit.

Polls show overwhelming concern by Americans about the border. Only 12% say a wall is not needed.

But that is the Democrat position, and they are stuck with it.

They also are stuck with Bungling Bob Mueller. Almost two years in, and Mueller is reduced to prosecuting people for buying Facebook ads.

Slowly, it is sinking in that Mueller is a mental midget, a careeerist who makes Inspector Clouseau look like Colombo.

Taxpayers shelled out $5.8 million in an out-of-court settlement after Mueller harassed a man for five years in the FBI's bungled the anthrax case. Mueller had the wrong man.

Liberals rightly are nervous.

David Corn wrote, "You hear people say it again and again: Just wait for Robert Mueller’s final report. But they’re overlooking one distinct possibility: There may not be a Mueller report. Or at least not the kind of fulsome, tell-all report they have in mind."

Democrats still refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election. They believe that somehow they can impeach Donald Trump and install Hillary as president. Hating Trump traps them and prevents them from winning. In the midterm, for the first time in 84 years, the opposition party saw four incumbent senators lose.

President Trump feeds this anger and hate because the Democrat obsession with impeaching him has rendered them useless.

The price of failed regicide is severe. Voters will deliver it on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

  1. The probability of a comprehensive published report like The Starr Report is low. Those witch hunters don't want to come under a microscope themselves, and anything they publish is going to be a stimulus for a round of FOIA requests that the executive office will be inclined to comply with. Most likely a very vaguely worded summary that casts guilt by association in a way that is enigmatic enough to satisfy partisans, but not enough to initiate action. Then, having received the same treatment as Hillary, every time someone brings her up, the leftists will say, "See? Your guy is the same!"

    Doing Nonnyass's job for him isn't too hard.

  2. Ryan and McConnell tried to slow-roll the president just like the Swamp has played us for the last three decades. He warned them he wouldn't sign another POS.

    I have noticed an uptick in the Crazy, though. The Times rolling out the same old story of McCabe tried to frame Trump to save his own skin. The Post breathlessly panting that President Trump had confidential words with another head of state--like every other meeting ever held in American history. Brennan accusing the president of acting like Brennan and Hillary's incitement: "Not another day!".

    It's like the same old Groundhog Day Derangement you've come to love--now with 50% more Rabid Frothing at the Mouth!

    ps: great interview with the Judge last night.

  3. ps; Here's another one: WSJ: White House Sought Options to Strike Iran

    You mean the administration reviewed our posture like every other administration ever? Wow --that's real news!

    I guess I still haven't acclimated to our All Propaganda/All the Time-Media. I kinda hope I never do.

  5. Thiessen may think the Dems have the upper hand, but his quotes say just the opposite. Probably like most libs - say they have the advantage but know they are full of it.

  6. I ignore what they say in public. They may or may not be lying, they may or may not know what they are talking about. More often than not what these insiders and experts say in public is part of a campaign to influence public opinion.

    As Obama, Romney and Hillary all demonstrated, what they say in private shows their true colors.

  7. David Corn is a CIA conduit. He was the reporter who blamed Scooter Libby for revealing Valerie Plame's identity when he and the CIA knew all along Libby did not - it was Armitage - the Deputy Sec of State.

    The CIA is preparing the ground for a nothingburger Mueller report because there's no there there.
