The Russia witch hunt of 2019 may have gone out with a whimper, but the great Impeachment Hoax of 2020 went out with a bang. President Trump took a victory lap at an epic State of the Union address on the eve of his acquittal that left Democrat leaders fuming.
And despite relentless efforts by Democrats to resist, obstruct and negate the will of voters in 2016, Pres. Trump has emerged as the consummate winner yet again.
If those suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome thought impeachment was a pathway to winning the 2020 elections, it appears they sorely miscalculated. The fallout from the impeachment conspiracy will likely galvanize voters against those who obstructed the America First agenda. These rank among the most significant winners and losers of the impeachment hoax.
Winner: President Trump Fully Vindicated
It became abundantly clear during the process that Democrats were trying to prevent the inevitable re-election of President Trump. His policies and leadership have paved the way for an economic resurgence that has benefited Americans across the board.
“As far as the political impact, I think you’d have to say that Donald Trump is better off now than he was when the impeachment process began,” Fox News commentator Chris Wallace said. “He’s had a number of bipartisan successes on trade deals. The economy is rolling along. The Gallup poll just came out. It’s the highest he’s had in this presidency, 49 percent.”
The president also asserted that he is the alpha leader in government as Democrats suffered yet another political defeat that adds to their opposition to tax cuts, trade deals, travel bans, border security, and energy independence, among many others.
Loser: Mitt Romney Could Be All Done
The impeachment attack was almost entirely partisan. Even moderate Democrats such as West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema toed the party line and voted to remove the president. Utah Sen. Romney was the lone senator to break ranks, and the GOP will never forgive him.
Romney tried to shield disgracing himself in a blanket of faith, but Americans know he is a false prophet who has an ax to grind. A Utah lawmaker has already introduced a measure to censure Romney.
“We’re not censuring him for voting his conscience. We’re censuring him for the positions that he’s taken through this whole process,” state Rep. Phil Lyman reportedly said. “And to send a message that we want to have good relationships with the White House, we want to have good relationships with President Trump.”
Romney has long been accused of being a Republican in Name Only (RINO), and his chances of re-election appear to be slim to none in Utah. His favorability in Utah is far below that of President Trump.
Loser: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
The California Congresswoman has struggled to retain her leadership role in the House and was reluctant to head down the impeachment path. Her political instincts were proven correct, but her judgment to proceed could prove costly.
Radical upstarts such as AOC and her so-called Squad have been sucking up much of the Washington, D.C., oxygen, and this failure could create a power vacuum following the next election.
Pelosi’s tearing up of the State of the Union speech also demonstrated her lack of composure. Don’t be surprised if liberal extremists in the House make a play for top-tier party leadership because of this historic impeachment face-plant.
The America First policies have delivered the best economic opportunities for the African-American community in the history of the nation. All that could have been lost if Democrats were able to undo the 2016 election results and post a candidate to win in November.
With Sleazy Joe Biden being outed as a corrupt segregationist, and far-left candidates Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren wanting to blow up the economy in favor of socialism, Republicans are very likely to hold a majority in both houses of Congress and the White House. That means the historic-best economic numbers for African-Americans will only get better. Democrats have no answer to why President Trump has delivered so much in so short a time.
