‘A sad day for America,’ Ha ha ha!

Senators, if you subpoena Hunter Biden
 impeachment will go bye bye  or

Why Republicans are in a very good mood today

Must confess the white lab coats at the Policy Werkes watched too much of the impeachment shenanigans on our b&w Philco for the same reason lookie-loo’s slow down to eyeball hamburger on the highway. But we can understand why many did not. It’s like being told Who Done It at the beginning of an Agatha Christie mystery. Why bother?

Voting Present — How we wish Tulsi Gabbard were up on the Democrats’ presidential candidate debate stage 7 p.m. tonight (12-19-19) in Los Angeles! The Democrat from Hawaii voted “present” on both articles of impeachment Wednesday. The exchequer of the Werkes dipped into the Mason jar buried in the back yard to send her campaign some of our filthy lucre, help her get in the next debate.

So sad

The impeachment drinking game — take two aspirins if you took a swig every time a Democrat quoted Ben Franklin’s “A republic, if you can keep it”? The indentured servants shouted back: “a straight face, if you can keep it.”

We gagged each time a Democrat turned the spigot on the fake waterworks to announce what a sad moment for the country this was. (It was, just not how they think.) 

Then why did Speaker Pelosi need to issue a memorandum instructing her minions to refrain from dancing in the end zone? Despite the warning, the Speaker needed to shush the cheering after each of the two articles were enacted. Some “solemn day for our country.”

Washington Post political reporters wish everyone a Merry Impeachmas. Story here.

A new fashion statement — We do like the “dagger-like” pin Pelosi wore on her blouse. Learned it was the official Mace of the U.S. House. Long shots of the House podium show it framing the Speaker’s chair on either side. Harks from Roman times, where it was known as the fasces, a symbol of power (from which the term “fascist” is derived). (More here.) The lady in white wore black this time. The ensemble reminds the Werkes’ unwoke historians of the black cap — actually more of a doily — that English judges place atop their heads before they pronounce the death sentence. 

Don’t make me come over there!


MS-DNC (as Hannity calls the all-Schiff cable TV outlet) went to great lengths to portray Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s “We’ve got to impeach the M-F’er” on her inauguration in January 2019 — months before the July 25 phone call — as an outlier. They forgot (on purpose) the January 20, 2017 headline in the Washington Post: The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.” Yeah, the very day of Trump’s inauguration.

(The) Ukraine, America’s firewall? — We are also unpersuaded that Trump put American security at risk by temporarily holding up lethal aid to (the) Ukraine. This is a President who trashed his two Republican predecessors (both named Bush) for futile wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Suddenly, (the) Ukraine is vital to America’s national security? Ukraine? How about Belarus?

The roll will not be called — You will also notice that the House did not call the roll; members were not required to respond Yea or Nay after hearing their name. Instead, they voted with red (against) or green (in favor) cards — a move that shielded vulnerable members like Kind from campaign opposition audio and video. 

Comment, respond, what do you thinkMaybe the Twelfth of Never — A wild thought (my own but based on a discussion with super-lawyer Jim Troupis) that Pelosi need never submit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. Why should she? The House vote was as good as it is going to get for Democrats. Why allow the Senate to vindicate — possibly by peremptorily voting to dismiss out of hand, without so much as a brief trial?

The poison pill scenario — Sens. Mitch McConnell (Trump’s most valuable ally) and Lindsay Graham could signal they intend to subpoena Joe and Hunter Biden. Rep. Pelosi will then confine the Articles to her outer-office file cabinet.

The Resistance is indicting Republicans for not voting their conscience, in contrast to supposed profiles in courage like La Crosse-area congressman Ron Kind. Indeed, his 3rd district is one of Wisconsin’s two swing districts (along with Mike Gallagher’s 8th district centered around Green Bay). Yet, some 20 Republicans not seeking re-election — people like Jim Sensenbrenner — had nothing to lose by voting against impeachment, but they did not. So, perhaps, these gents DID vote their conscience, as did three Democrats against impeachment. And Tulsi Gabbard’s “present” may have been the most courageous.

The will of the people? President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has inched up again and is now at 45%, according to the Gallup poll released Wednesday.

The president’s ratings have increased 6 percentage points since the House of Representatives opened an impeachment inquiry against him in the fall. Currently, 46% support impeachment and removal, down six percentage points from the first reading after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry. Meanwhile, 51% oppose impeachment and removal — up 5 percentage points over the same period. 

Blaska’s Bottom Line: If Vladimir Putin plotted to sow discord in American politics he could not have planned it better. Now, we await his direction on for whom to vote next November. In the meantime, we’ll upgrade our molar tooth fillings to 5G.

What do YOU think? (and no voting ‘Present’)

    Here’s to hoping Pelosi DOES just sit on those articles. Trump will never get to crow that the Senate (led by Moscow “the fix is in!” Mitch) exonerated him.
    Doesn’t it bother any of you guys that Putin is so happy about all this?

      Right. Instead, he can crow about how the Dems didn’t have the guts to follow through on their witch hunt. Even better. And you claim Trump is fixated on Putin?

      Sigh! Lefty’s not only Dead Man Walking, but sauntering cluelessly down The Green Mile.

      It gets worse.

      (bolds/caps mine throughout)
      (Senator Josh) Hawley (R-MO): Was it your conclusion that there was — that political bias did not affect any part of the [former FBI lawyer Lisa] Page investigation, any part of Crossfire Hurricane? Is that what you concluded?

      (DoJ Inspector General Michael) Horowitz: WE DID NOT REACH THAT CONCLUSION.

      Hawley: Because I could have sworn — in fact, I know for a fact that I’ve heard that today from this committee. But that’s not your conclusion?

      Horowitz: We have been very careful, in connection with the FISAs, for the reasons you mentioned, TO NOT REACH THAT CONCLUSION.”

      Fan? Meet $#!T!

      And worse yet.

      High Comedy, in the form of the Lefty Clown Car Caravan Cavalcade will commence tonight, with Lily White participants tripping all over themselves to show how woke they are.

          This may come as a bit of a shock, but this is Lefty’s dirty work, yet again.

          To wit:

          We were soothed by Hopey Changey (whose warmongering international relations were the stuff of nightmares!) telling us (POTUS debate with Romney 2012), and I quote: ”The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

          Such a mensch, am I right.

          Anywho, then we were SMOOTHED (2015) when the lyin’ thievin’ decevin’ Hillarity hilariously misspelled “Reset” (Perezagruzka); she used the word for “overcharged” (peregruzka) instead.

          Then Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wants people to stop asking him about the failed “reset” with Russia because he says “it was the invention of Hillary Clinton and Obama administration.”

          So, seems Lefty’s the one that screwed the pooch, a Ruskkie Wolfhound; a story as old as time itself!

    Yesterday’s sorry spectacle was at least appropriate to the season. Like the Ghost of Christmas to Come showing Ebenezer Scrooge his forlorn grave, the Dems’ Impeachment of Trump gave them a foretaste of their disastrous defeat in the 2020 election. The transparent choreography of the vote–right down to the approved fashion (black=solemn) and the forbidden applause–demonstrated beyond a doubt how craven and duplicitous Nancy, Adam, Jerry & Co. really are.
