On this weeks Liberty Loft Podcast, JD discusses some of the major events from 2019 and how they will continue to be a big deal looking into 2020.
2019 was certainly an interesting year. We knew it was going to be interesting with the new Democratic congress, and they certainly did not let us down. From multiple time-wasting investigations to two horrible articles of impeachment, they have continued to waste tax dollars and time. Time they could be serving American interests, but they were more interested in their own pockets. Time they could have been investigating corruption and shown they were interested in rooting it out of their party. Yet, they have decided to continue to support it.
Congress upheld their promise of impeaching President Trump. It was certainly a failure of Congress to do their jobs. They have focused on getting rid of Trump more than they have focused on serving their constituents. It’s truly disappointing but was expected given these Democrats who were elected. AOC certainly did not disappoint with all of her insanity. Actually, all of the squad members provided us entertainment throughout the year.
Speaking of entertainment, It was also an interesting year with President Trump. You can’t help but laugh thinking about some of his tweets and comments in his interactions with the Democrats. Every time my phone alerts when he sends out a tweet, I get nervous about what he will say this time. He managed impeachment well and is looking very strong going into 2020. I think he has positioned himself well and the poll numbers are showing it.
His approval rating is going up and in some of the more recent polls over at Real Clear Politics it shows that he is winning head to head against most of the Democratic challengers he may face. You certainly will not hear any of this positive stuff from the media. All throughout 2019 the media proved who it sides with. They continue to be cozy with Democrats and the progressive agenda. So where does this lead us going into 2020?
I think you have to start looking in January to see what the House will do with the Articles of impeachment. Obviously, Pelosi continues to hold these as a power play to try to force her will on the Senate. This will not work for her. I actually wrote about this earlier in the week where I talked about the delivery of the articles. The articles are not required in the Senate to conduct an investigation according to the constitution. The constitution only states that the Senate is the only one that can conduct the investigation. Everything else is procedural rules and those can be changed with a Simple vote by Mitch McConnel in the Senate.
I also think you will see the Democrats cave on their demands for trial witnesses. If they continue to push, the Senate will most likely call the Biden’s and others to testify in a trial that will not benefit Democrats one bit. The last thing that they need is their leading candidate to admit to corruption in front of the Senate during his time as VP. It’s already looking dim for Biden with recent investigations into his son. When you add in his brother and China and all the other pieces, it could spell a lot of trouble for him.
The other thing I am watching closely is the continuing investigations into President Trump. Democrats have made no secret that they plan to continue to investigate and may bring more charges against President Trump for impeachment. I question this approach. If the charges were good enough to impeach him the first time, why do we need more? Democrats obviously know that the Senate will acquit Trump, but they want to keep the pressure on Trump and the negative press going into the election. Negative press will be the only way they can convince people to abandon Trump.
Why do I say that? Well because the majority of American’s continue to believe they are better off since Trump got in office. They are making more money and are more secure in their jobs. The poll data proves it. Sure, they may not like Trump, but he’s doing a great job for their wallets and their families. He’s got the economy growing at a crazy growth rate and they are keeping more money due to the tax cuts. Democrats know that the only way to defeat Trump is to make him appear so horrible that it’s worth sacrificing your personal good to get him out of office. It’s also the only way that they can push through socialism, which continues to remain unpopular with Americans.
