The joint statement from Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Schumer is disappointing in that it’s a purely partisan document. While President Trump delivered a measured, serious speech to the nation in which he called for both sides to work together, Pelosi and Schumer chose to push division on Capitol Hill:

We have a public health crisis in this country and the best way to help keep the American people safe and ensure their economic security is for the president to focus on fighting the spread of the coronavirus itself. Alarmingly, the president did not say how the administration will address the lack of coronavirus testing kits throughout the United States.

Tomorrow, we urge Republicans in the House and Senate to help immediately pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The bill will include free coronavirus testing, paid emergency leave for workers, food security assistance, help to states overburdened by Medicaid costs, and strengthened Unemployment Insurance, among other much-needed measures to keep the American people safe.

Notice that the Democrats’ leadership on Capitol Hill didn’t acknowledge President Trump’s month-long travel ban of people coming from Europe, with the exception of the British. That’s a major step. When the Trump administration implemented the travel ban with China, Democrats called President Trump xenophobic. Tonight’s travel ban was met with crickets.

The Democrats’ plan is government-centric. President Trump’s plan is a mix of making sure that the US health care system stays strong, reducing international travel, financially helping workers who get infected with the virus and relying on the best public health system in the world to get us through this crisis. This isn’t just a ‘whole of government’ approach. President Trump’s plan is a whole of America plan.

Compare the Pelosi-Schumer 2 paragraph statement with this Rubio-Gingrich op-ed:

First, the U.S. government should empower our robust private business sector to expand in order to meet new demand for medical supplies. Congress should cut taxes on manufacturers committing to new capital spending in America by making permanent the accelerated cost depreciation measures in the 2017 Republican tax law. New medical structures and equipment should be temporarily singled out for additional reductions.

Second, agencies with lending operations like the U.S. Small Business Administration should make low-cost capital available to businesses seeking to solve their supply chain problems by bringing production in-house to America, or otherwise buying from American small businesses.

Third, as American businesses struggle with supply chain disruptions due to the coronavirus, the U.S. government must resolve any tax, regulatory or capital barrier preventing a new, trusted source from emerging.

The Pelosi-Schumer plan does nothing to address this frightening situation. The thought that China has this much of a grip on our medicines is totally unacceptable. From the start of his administration, President Trump has worked hard to eliminate US reliance on Chinese products. This proves that he’s right, especially in light of this crisis. This isn’t just a health crisis. It’s a national security crisis, too.

It’s time for Pelosi and Schumer to start putting America first rather than playing partisan games. They’re welcome to join the Put America First Team anytime.

Newt Gingrich is one of the best election analysts in modern history. When he starts talking about the potential for wave elections, I listen. That’s what he’s talking about in this article.

One of the first things he mentions is “The liberal media likes to focus on how many House Republicans are retiring. Somehow this is supposed to make Republicans feel defeated and hopeless. In this context, I was startled recently to hear Congresswoman Elise Stefanik say 2020 was going to be the year of the House Republican woman. She went on to assert that there was a historic record being set for Republican women filing to run for the House.”

Speaker Gingrich then gets into candidate recruitment, online fundraising and a host of other things that give Republicans a distinct advantage. Here’s what he said about candidate recruitment:

I checked in with Chairman Tom Emmer at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and found that, if anything, Stefanik had understated the momentum of new recruits. With House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and the leadership team going all out, the House Republicans are setting a remarkably encouraging series of records.

Consider these numbers: The total number of Republicans filed for House seats so far is 928, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) figures – or 188 more than the total at the same time in 2010 (740). The year 2010 matters because it was the last time Nancy Pelosi was kicked out of the majority and Speaker John Boehner led the House GOP to its biggest gain in modern times – with his “where are the jobs” slogan.

Right now, the only accomplishment that the House Democrats can point to is the ratification of President Trump’s USMCA trade agreement. Compared with the things that Republicans can point to during their 2 years in office, the Democrats don’t have much to highlight during the campaign. Then there’s the fundraising portion of this equation:

In the 2018 cycle, this system raised $1.8 billion over the two-year period. When this scale of small-donor involvement was combined with massive donors like Michael Bloomberg (who spent $5 million on ads in the last two weeks in some elections) the Democrats’ money advantage was enormous. This helps explain the Republican House defeats.

The threat posed by the ActBlue system was reinforced in 2019 when it raised more than $1 billion for the Democrats. Republican leaders realized they had to match or exceed the small-dollar system the Democrats had invented. They developed a competitive model called WinRed. The intensity of support for President Trump, combined with growing anger over the Democrats’ investigation and impeachment strategy, has made WinRed a success much faster than anyone expected.

In its first two quarters, WinRed raised $101 million. Its effectiveness is growing rapidly. It raised $31 million in its first quarter of existence and more than doubled that in the second quarter with $70 million (fourth quarter of 2019). In fact, WinRed raised more in its first 190 days than ActBlue raised in its first five years.

The other factor that people haven’t talked about is the fact that most of the competitive seats that Republicans need to flip to return to the majority are seats that President Trump has done well in. It isn’t like Republicans have to flip tons of seats where Democrats traditionally do well in. That, in turn, means that they won’t need to raise as much money as Democrats raise.

House Democrats have to defend why they didn’t get important things done during this Congress. They promised to lower prescription drug prices, fix health care, work on infrastructure and strengthen the economy. They didn’t get any of those things done. They don’t have a list of accomplishments. Democrats have an accomplishment — USMCA. The rest of their time was wasted on impeachment, sour grapes and other waste-of-time investigations. If I were running the NRCC’s messaging, I’d have a single message, which would be “What have you done for me lately?”

It’s time to call Pelosi’s Democrats out. They’re essentially worthless. Democrats spent more time telling us that Iranians really loved Soleimani than they spent in court to compel witnesses that House Democrats said weren’t needed but that Senate Democrats insist are essential. Now Pelosi insists that not calling witnesses that House Democrats didn’t call amounts to a cover-up:

I’d love hearing Pelosi sell that BS to the American people.

Jack Brewer wrote about the black vote in 2020 in this op-ed, noting that “I’m one of those who have become full-fledged supporters of the president and want to see him reelected. Others, like Prince, haven’t endorsed Trump for reelection at this point, but support some of the president’s policies and appreciate what he has done.”

That’s where Brewer starts explaining why he supports President Trump:

We also recognized that while Democrats make big promises to black voters in the run-up to every election, too often those promises are forgotten once the polls close. In part that’s because Democrats take our votes for granted; they just assume the vast majority of black people will vote Democratic. If more of us voted for Republicans, candidates in both parties would do more to compete for our votes.

What good are big promises that aren’t kept? Back in the mid-90s, a men’s religious movement got started by then-University of Colorado Football Coach Bill McCartney. The movement was called Promise Keepers. Its first study book was titled “The Awesome Power of a Promise Kept”. The point behind the book is that keeping promises changes lives.

From another perspective, Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America gained popularity by keeping these promises made to the American people:

On the first day of their majority in the House, the Republicans promised to bring up for vote, eight major reforms:

  1. require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress;
  2. select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  3. cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  4. limit the terms of all committee chairs;
    ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  5. require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  6. require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  7. guarantee an honest accounting of the Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

In 1994, Republicans took back the House for the first time in 40years. First, Newt’s Republicans stood for something appealing. Next, Newt’s Republicans kept their promises. Third and perhaps most importantly, Newt’s Republicans promised to not exempt themselves from the laws they passed. Period.

Since he took office, President Trump has worked hard to improve the lives of African-Americans. Democrats can complain all they want but that doesn’t change reality. President Trump has put in place policies that are putting smiles on people’s faces. African-Americans have the lowest unemployment rate in their history. Opportunity Zones have brought back wealth into poor neighborhoods, thereby creating middle class employment opportunities.

President Trump is keeping promises and making life better for African-Americans. It isn’t lost on people when comparing Trump’s pro-African-American accomplishments with the Democrats unfulfilled promises. That’s why President Trump is making significant inroads into the African-American community.

Axios insists that President Trump’s fight with the Squad was purely impulsive. I’m not nearly as certain of that. In fact, there’s some pretty solid thinking that this was intentional and well-executed. In an interview with Bill Hemmer, Newt Gingrich explained that President Trump plays chess while his opponents play tic-tac-toe. I tend to believe Gingrich because he’s bested too many people for this to be accidental.

Katie Pavlich seems to think there’s a method to President Trump’s madness, too:

“I think that President Trump making these women the face of the Democratic Party as they want to be. They want to burn it down. They want their socialist policies to reign,” Pavlich said on ‘The Five.’ “Democrats are going to find out a whole lot more about who they are because they’re going to primary them as we just saw.”

Nothing about the Squad’s behavior says that they’re respectful. If anything, their actions signal that they’re extremely disrespectful. These women have made it pretty clear that they aren’t interested in being key parts of the Democratic Party. They want to be the Democratic Party.

Newt’s right. Democrats will likely be united. That isn’t automatically a positive thing, especially in the time of AOC + 3. Uniting around insane things still creates a landslide. Further, Pelosi, the leftist pundits and the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, aka the media, can whine all they want about moderates. Now that the moderates have voted to protect AOC + 3, who will believe that there are still moderate Democrats?

It’s obvious that President Trump doesn’t just want to win re-election. He certainly wants that but he wants to recapture the majority in the House and grow the Republicans’ majority in the Senate. To do that, he’ll need a supercharged GOP coming out of the convention. Based on the fundraising numbers and the numbers of people volunteering at the rallies, I’m betting that President Trump will get his wish.

When it comes to analyzing election cycles, Newt Gingrich has excelled for more than a generation. When he writes an article that talks about a looming Trump landslide, I listen. Speaker Gingrich’s article cites 5 things that point to a Trump re-election landslide: “economy, stature, patriotism, issue insanity, and progress on health issues.” Speaker Gingrich starts with the booming economy.

Gingrich notes that the “lowest African American and Latino unemployment rates recorded in history are beginning to create approval for Trump in those communities that no Republican in modern times has been able to do. The rise in manufacturing jobs and salaries are becoming advantages for President Trump. Meanwhile, the Democrats are campaigning on the economy as though they were in another country. Faced with continuous job and wage growth, it is hard to make a compelling case against the Trump economy.”

Meanwhile, the Democrats’ presidential candidates campaign like we’re living in a country titled Soupline America. They don’t believe their own words. It’s just that they know that admitting that things are going pretty well pretty much dooms their campaigns while the leaders of the Resist Movement simmer as the Trump administration wins another fight. Gingrich notes that President Trump’s economy is the underpinning for everything else.

Issue insanity is beginning to erode the Democrats.

In 1972, McGovern was an outlier. He clearly represented the radical wing of the Democratic Party. It was relatively easy for most Democrats to say, “I am not him.” At the same time, President Nixon, scarred by losing in 1960 and 1962 and having won a very narrow election in 1968, kept Republican resources focused on his re-election and failed to help congressional Republicans. The result was the largest presidential popular vote percentage in modern history (60.7 percent) for the Republican president, while Republicans lost two Senate seats and only gained 12 house seats.

Today is dramatically worse for Democrats than in 1972. Instead of having one likable but wacky left-wing radical, every single candidate in the second debate raised his or her hand for positions that are simply unacceptable to most Americans. If McGovern could be separated out as “the radical” almost 50 years ago, look where we are today. Every plausible nominee has radical positions – and the House and Senate Democrats are voting for radical positions on issue after issue. Furthermore, President Trump has learned the cost of a left-wing Democratic Speaker and will be spending resources to help Kevin McCarthy of California become speaker.

AOC is everything except an official part of the Trump campaign. While she talks about concentration camps, Americans roll their eyes in disbelief. It isn’t that they think that everything is fine at these detention centers. It’s that they don’t believe Democrats’ claims of forcing women to drink from a toilet.

Further, the American people are looking at that situation while wondering why Democrats haven’t worked with President Trump to fix a truly broken immigration system. If there is divided government, the people expect the different parties to work together and fix things. While President Trump offers reasonable proposals, AOC proposes to get rid of ICE, then the Department of Homeland Security and Rashida Tlaib accuses CBP of major human rights violations.

I’ve said for several months that the biggest thing that Republicans have going for them is the Democrats’ nuttiness. It isn’t just that Democrats are wrong on the issues. It’s that they’re crazier than a shithouse rat. We know that Democrats are nuts when AOC accuses Nancy Pelosi of being a racist, then denies that she called the Democrat leader a racist several hours later.

Meanwhile, Democrats criticize the Trump administration for enforcing the laws:

Democrats have become the party that doesn’t believe in enforcing existing laws. To hear AOC talk about it, you’d swear that the people of law enforcement are Nazis. That’s pretty nuts. That’s why Democrats, if they don’t grow a spine and stand up to AOC’s Squad, will get their butts handed to them in November, 2020.

It’s pretty apparent that Democrats don’t give a damn about border security. Any political party that unanimously approves of decriminalizing illegal aliens entering the United States officially is the Open Borders Party. The week before Independence Day, NBC and the DNC (Pardon the repetition) hosted a pair of Democrat presidential debates.

During those debates, each of the Democrat presidential candidates raised their hands in support of decriminalizing illegal aliens entering the US. They didn’t stop there, though, unfortunately. All 20 of these Democrat presidential candidates raised their hands affirming that their national health care laws would provide taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens.

Jeh Johnson, President Obama’s final Secretary of Homeland Security, passionately opposes the Democrats’ open border policies:

That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders. That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.

I don’t disagree often with Newt Gingrich but I must this time:

When word spreads that sick people can sneak into America and get free medical treatment from American doctors and nurses, the flood of sick immigrants will double and triple from the current numbers.

It isn’t that I disagree with Newt’s opinion. It’s his choice of words. Right now, illegal aliens don’t have to “sneak” across the border. They can waltz across the border, then apply for asylum. Thanks to Nancy ‘Spark of Divinity’ and Alexandria ‘Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire’ Ocasio-Cortez, illegal aliens are treated better than are our homeless veterans.

Anyone who thinks that this is patriotic is stupid beyond belief. Yes, I’m talking to you, Jessica Tarlov, Tom Perez and Ed Rendell. Predictably, Newt nailed it with this tweet:


Democrats are patriots in some weird, demented way but not in the traditional sense. It’s time to re-establish Reaganite patriotism. It’s been too long since we had that type of patriotism.

AOC’s patriotism is faux patriotism. She wouldn’t recognize Founding Fathers-style patriotism if it bit her backside. The men who signed the Declaration, the men who fought the Revolutionary War and the men who wrote this nation’s Constitution were selfless men. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that they were dead men walking if George Washington’s army didn’t defeat King George’s military.

Can anyone picture AOC doing any of the things that those slaveholders did? Yes, I ‘admitted’ that many were slaveholders. I can’t picture AOC doing anything even close to what those patriots did.

Democrats have been intentionally mangling the meaning of important words. Democrats deny advocating for open borders while providing incentives that would shout to the Northern Triangle nations to flood across the US-Mexico border. Democrats insist that detention facilities are concentration camps and that women are forced to drink from toilets.

It’s impossible to believe that CBP is tormenting women and little girls in the ways that AOC is insisting. It isn’t like AOC has a lengthy history of veracity. Rather, AOC has a history of frequently getting caught lying.

If Republicans want to get things done, they’ll need to toss the gloves and put on brass knuckles. Resistance Democrats fight like Antifa. If we want to lose honorably, (think John McCain) then Republicans will lose often. No more! Tell AOC, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff that their reign of stupidity and lies is coming to a close in a few months.

Finally, Republicans should adopt President Reagan’s policy towards the USSR. When asked what his policy towards the Soviets was, President Reagan, replied “Simple. We win, they lose.” It’s time to sink the Democrats’ battleship.

Crazy Bernie and Elizabeth Warren, aka Pocahontas, won’t like what a recent Rasmussen poll showed about socialism. Newt Gingrich wrote about the poll in this article.

In his opinion piece, Gingrich cited the poll as saying “As the Rasmussen poll reported on Wednesday, 41 percent of Americans may have a favorable view of socialism…” That doesn’t sound like bad news for Crazy Bernie or Elizabeth Warren but that’s because I didn’t include the rest of the sentence. The full sentence said “As the Rasmussen poll reported on Wednesday, 41 percent of Americans may have a favorable view of socialism – but “most who like the term socialism do not think of it as an economic ideology.” It gets worse from there:

Voters still think free markets are better than socialism, by 55 percent to 12 percent, according to Rasmussen. They also say free markets are better for raising people into the middle class, creating good jobs and shrinking poverty. Finally, a clear majority of Americans of every political persuasion are optimistic about the future of our country, according to the survey.

That last sentence is a killer for Democrats. I’ve listened to the Democrats’ economic message, if they have one. Most of them are trying to convince people that the booming Trump economy isn’t booming. That’s if the Democrat presidential candidate even has an economic message.

That’s how a party walks into a harsh, stinging defeat. To say that these candidates are tone-deaf is understatement. They think that Sleepy Joe Biden is a moderate. Good luck with that one.

Every Democrat running for president wants to eliminate the corporate tax cuts that have played a huge part in reviving the lackluster Obama-Biden ‘recovery’. Blue collar workers are experiencing the fastest wage growth of any cohort while Democrats insist that President Trump didn’t deliver on his promises to these workers. Good luck with that. This is the post-kickoff reaction of Trump supporters:

Forgive me on this but I’m betting it’s difficult to convince that many smiling people that they’re living in Soup Line America. The point is that it’s difficult to convince a person who’s having a fun time that their life is a struggle. To put it differently, Democrats are trying to tell people that their lives really aren’t better than they were 4 years ago. The great news is that the American people get it:

Apparently, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s dictionary is either missing or it’s worthless. Based on this article, it’s apparent that Rep. Omar’s dictionary isn’t used much. If I didn’t know better, I’d say that it’s used as often as her diplomatic capabilities.

According to the article, “Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D-MN), went on a rant against President Trump and his administration for calling illegal immigrants ‘aliens’ and ‘dehumanizing’ them. ‘No one is an ‘alien,’ she tweeted. ‘Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe,’ Omar also said.”

Dictionary.com’s definition of alien is “a resident of one country who was born in or owes allegiance to another country and has not acquired citizenship by naturalization in the country of residence (distinguished from citizen).” If Rep. Omar wants to throw an emotional hissy fit over the dictionary’s definition of a word, that’s her right, though it isn’t the action of a thoughtful person.

Accurately portraying people “who haven’t acquired citizenship” as people “who haven’t acquired citizenship” is simply being faithful to the English language. People who weren’t born in the US and who didn’t go through the naturalization process haven’t acquired citizenship. I get it that Rep. Omar doesn’t like that definition. That’s tough.

If she wants to strip this terminology out of immigration code, she’s free to write a bill that would eliminate that term from US immigration statutes. When her Democrat colleagues in swing districts join with Republicans in the House in defeating the legislation, I’ll ridicule Rep. Omar. She deserves it.

Thursday night, Newt Gingrich spoke about how insane today’s Democrats have become. I’ve seen tons of proof that says many of today’s Democrats are anti-American. Why would people think that today’s United States are racist and hate immigrants? What proof do these people have that verifies their paranoia? Seriously, watching Sen. Spartacus almost burst into tears about how awful today’s US is makes me want to regurgitate.

It’s difficult to imagine a congresscritter more anti-American than Ilhan Omar. That’s because it’s difficult to imagine a congresscritter who doesn’t defend the Constitution more than she does. When she got sworn in, she swore to uphold the Constitution. What proof do we have that Rep. Omar understands basic constitutional principles like federalism, separation of powers or the Bill of Rights?

Rep. Omar might understand those principles but I don’t know what I can’t prove. Right now, I can’t prove that Rep. Omar understands or agrees with the Bill of Rights. She might but she might not.

This Reuters hit piece is what I’d expect from the Agenda Media, which isn’t much. I don’t expect integrity. I don’t expect facts. I don’t expect insight. In other words, I have lower expectations for this Reuters hit piece than I have for articles I’ll read from Hot Air, Powerline, Daily Wire, The Federalist, Shot In the Dark, Legal Insurrection or Townhall.

This Reuters hit piece reads like something from a DNC press release. In other words, it’s a bunch of crap. One of the paragraphs in the article states “The Trump of 2020 will most certainly bear a strong resemblance to the Trump of 2016, brash and eager to bash his Democratic opponents and promote tough policies on trade and immigration.”

President Trump’s policies aren’t tough. They’re right. President Trump is fond of saying that he’s fighting for America, not some other nation. His slogan “Buy American, hire American” is wildly popular in hard hat country because other administrations, most recently the Obama administration, have forgotten these people. When came along and told them that they’d never be forgotten again, Blue Collar America rallied to him in unprecedented numbers.

Here’s another staple of President Trump’s rallies:

Check out this website for a powerful exhibit of how extensive President Trump’s list of accomplishments are. Listening to advisers of losing candidates is foolish. Here’s some advice that I’d ignore:

“His support with his base is as strong as it’s ever been for any Republican incumbent president. The challenge is adding to that and building the coalition he needs for re-election,” said Republican strategist Ryan Williams, a former adviser to 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The thing that Williams (and most pundits) misses is that Trump’s base is already huge. Anyone that thinks that he doesn’t have the best support of any Republican amongst blue collar workers, miners and other hard hats is kidding themselves. They’re likely to be his most passionate supporters.

There’s no question that President Trump faces a fight for re-election. That being said, as Newt Gingrich points out in this interview, President Trump’s supporters are the most passionate supporters I’ve seen in a generation or more:

This tweet is far more telling than the Reuters hit piece:


So much for Trump supporters being haters/racists. The proof is in the pictures. These people support Trump wholeheartedly.

Anyone that thinks that Nancy Pelosi is serious about both investigating President Trump and passing legislation that actually fixes problems like the asylum crisis at the border or building the wall is either naïve or stupid. This article highlights Ms. Pelosi’s partisanship and Ms. Pelosi’s motivations.

In the article, Ms. Pelosi said “The Congress holds sacred its constitutional responsibility to investigate and hold the President accountable for his abuse of power. The Congress will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy. The American people must have the truth.”

Simply put, Ms. Pelosi is a partisan political hack who doesn’t give a damn about getting at the truth. Let me rephrase that. She’s selectively interested in getting at the truth. She isn’t the least bit interested in finding out if the Obama administration weaponized the Intelligence Community in its attempt to push Hillary Clinton’s pathetic campaign across the finish line. Ms. Pelosi isn’t the least bit interested in finding out whether the FBI used a discredited opposition research document in its application for a FISA warrant.

What have Ms. Pelosi’s Democrats done to fix the United States’ asylum laws? What have Ms. Pelosi’s Democrats done in terms of holding hearings featuring border patrol or ICE agents to find out from the experts what they need? As I’ve said hundreds of times, I don’t give a damn what a windbag politician has proposed. I’m only interested in what ICE and CBP experts have to say.

These questions have been treated like rhetorical questions by House Democrats. These House Democrats either aren’t interested in these experts’ expertise or they’ve been instructed by leadership not to call these types of witnesses. Either way, House Democrats haven’t passed legislation that fixes any of the aforementioned crises. They’ve failed miserably.

Ms. Pelosi’s House Democrats apparently aren’t interested in fixing crises. Therefore, they should be fired ASAP. House Democrats, including Ms. Pelosi, have earned their termination papers. Here’s the latest Democrat talking point:

“Despite Department of Justice policy to the contrary, no one is above the law – not even the President.”

Whatever. Nobody in the President’s campaign was indicted for campaign-related crimes. Why hasn’t Ms. Pelosi mentioned that? Meanwhile, this is what a real speaker of the House sounds like:

As a historian who was there on the spot when Bill Clinton was impeached, Newt Gingrich knows what Kenneth Starr said in his report. Starr wrote 11 times that Bill Clinton was guilty of crimes and that 6 of those times, Clinton was guilty of obstruction of justice. Gingrich didn’t say that Starr complained about not being able to indict Bill Clinton. Starr simply said that he’d reached the conclusion that Clinton obstructed justice.

There isn’t anything complicated about that. Starr simply told Congress what he’d found. Mueller didn’t do that. His decision to not make a decision on obstruction of justice is itself a decision. It isn’t a decision that Pelosi’s Democrats like but it’s a decision nonetheless. It’s time for Democrats to put on their big boy britches and deal with the consequences of the Mueller Report.

In the end, Democrats haven’t figured out that the American people have moved on because they’re convinced that nothing illegal happened. If Democrats want to keep beating this dead horse, that’s their decision. I just wouldn’t expect that proverbial dead horse to suddenly rise up and defeat Secretariat.

Finally, Democrats have proven that they aren’t interested in legislating and investigating. That’s because the Resist Movement’s activists won’t let them get interested in legislating. When Democrats aren’t interested in legislating, they’re utterly worthless. It’s time to throw them out.
