A Bad B-Movie

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 8, 2019

         CALL IT A PREVIEW OF COMING DISTRACTIONS. NEXT WEEK’S STAGED HEARING BY CONGRESSMAN ADAM SCHIFF IS GOING TO RESEMBLE A BAD B-MOVIE. IT HAS BEEN PRECDED BY SELECTIVE LEAKS OF QUESTIONABLE TESTIMONY BY PEOPLE WHO IN SOME CASES ARE PARTISAN ANTI-TRUMPERS.

         HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE. DEMOCRATS WANT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW THE SENATE WILL NEVER CONVICT HIM. THEIR GOAL IS TO DAMAGE HIM SUFFICIENTLY SO HE WILL LOSE NEXT YEAR’S ELECTION. POLLS SHOW THE PRESIDENT’S SUPPORT AMONG REPUBLICANS IS AS STRONG AS EVER AND IN KEY ELECTORAL STATES HE CONTINUES TO LEAD, IN SOME CASES BY WIDE MARGINS. THE SENATE WILL NEVER CONVICT HIM.

         THIS IS ALL THE LEFT HAS. THEY DON’T HAVE THE ECONOMY. THEY DON’T HAVE THE STOCK MARKET, WHICH CONTINUES TO SET RECORDS, FATTENING RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS. ALL THEY HAVE IS IMPEACHMENT. THE MEDIA SHOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING JOE BIDEN’S THREATS AGAINST UKRAINE AND HIS SON’S PAYMENTS BY THE BURISMA ENERGY COMPANY FOR DOING NOTHING.

         THAT’S THE REAL SCANDAL, BUT DEMOCRATS AND THEIR MEDIA ALLIES IGNORE IT AND REMAIN FOCUSED ON OVERTURNING THE 2016 ELECTION RESULTS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
