Democrats Scared Impeaching Trump Could Make Iowa Contest Moot

Published

on

It’s become something of a joke to say that Democrats do nothing but pass the buck and avoid taking personal responsibility for their own party’s failures, but it seems that stereotype is firmly grounded in truth.

Supporters of 2020 Democratic Party candidates like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with those backing Amy Klobucahar have determined already who they are going to blame should their candidates fail in Iowa.

Trump’s impeachment trial.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

It remains unclear just how much time the trio, plus Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado, will be forced off the trail due to impeachment. The trial opened Thursday with ceremonial swearings-in of Chief Justice John Roberts in a presiding role and senators as jurors. Its substantive portion opens on Tuesday.

Until then, Warren, 70, and her fellow Democratic lawmakers running for president squeezed in visits to Iowa and other early voting states. But if Warren falls short in Iowa, being away for the impeachment trial is an obvious culprit, said supporter Jessica Chapman, 24. However, being forced back to Washington could also be a potential political asset.

“A strategy could definitely be to tell supporters they weren’t in the state,” Chapman told the Washington Examiner. “No one really has talked about how they’re not here. As long as her campaign makes clear she’s filling her constitutional duty, that sends a more important message than if she was just campaigning all day.”

In other words, it’s all Trump’s fault.

It seems the left just can’t get enough of blaming the current president for things, even if the whole scheme was actually their idea from the beginning.

Since these individuals have to be in Washington for the impeachment proceedings, they won’t be able to go around kissing babies and shaking hands with voters, promising them the world, which they know they can’t deliver, in order to get more folks to the polls to support them.

It couldn’t possibly be because Americans dislike their aggressive socialist policies or anything.

Theater where Pres. Lincoln was Shot Blasted for Tweet Dismissing His Legacy

Apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where President Lincoln was assassinated — thinks we need to knock him off his pedestal.

You know President Abraham Lincoln, the guy who freed the slaves, right? Well, apparently Ford’s Theater — the place where he was assassinated — thinks we need to knock Lincoln off his pedestal.

That’s right, the place that is only famous and a historic landmark because of Lincoln thinks Lincoln needs to be knocked down a few pegs.

This is just another example of leftists getting ahold of our historic landmarks and trying to undermine our history.

On Sept. 18, historic Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. tweeted this:

Do you ever feel we, as a nation, put Abraham Lincoln “on a pedestal”?

What do you think might be a more useful, more complex, or more realistic way to think about or memorialize the 16th president?

(Screen shot below in case they try to delete it, but it was still live as of the posting of this article.)

That’s right, we need to be “more useful” in how we think about Lincoln. We need to know him off that pedestal.

And these people claim to be concerned about history!

Looks more like they are going woke.

New data finds that 60 percent of the businesses that shut down for COVID mitigation will be closed permanently and won’t be coming back.

New data from Yelp shows the terrible state of affairs, according to CNBC.

Yelp on Wednesday released its latest Economic Impact Report, revealing business closures across the U.S. are increasing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic’s economic toll.

As of Aug. 31, some 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That’s down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.
In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won’t be reopening.

“Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, vice president of data science at Yelp, told CNBC.

Congratulations Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and the entire Democrat establishment for destroying most of the country with you ineffective, unscientific lockdowns.
