Dems declare war.

February 7, 2019

On the heels of President Trump’s emphatic declaration during the SOTU that the U.S. will not become a socialist nation, House Democrats launched their offensive against him.

Apparently fearing that the Mueller report will not sufficiently “prove” that the President is a Russian pawn, Adam Schiff declared that his committee will investigate the President all over again, even vowing to comb through his business dealings from decades before Citizen Trump launched his presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, Jerry Nadler is planning to harass Acting Attorney General Whitaker, even as he stands to be replaced by William Barr sometime this week or next.

The message?  Serve this President at your own risk.

In the meantime, one of the current sub-memes is whether Democrats are using threats to make sure the newer members of Congress toe the party line.

We’re speaking of course about the conjecture on Twitter that Senator Jacky Rosen warned newbie Krysten Sinema to “watch your ass” when Sinema applauded at the wrong time during the SOTU.

As someone who lip reads out of necessity, this writer can’t swear to the first word due to the camera angle, but the last two are “your ass.” That would indicate that stepping off the party line could be hazardous to one’s career.

It isn’t that this is all that unexpected.  Democrats said they would do it if they gained a majority.

That doesn’t make it any more palatable.

It’s a long time until November 2020, but if Democrats continue down this path, they may well wind up handing the President a second term, as surely as if they vote for him.
