Rip This Up
This week that seems to be lasting a month got a jolt on Wednesday when Mitch McConnell brought the impeachment circus to an end. While it seemed that the Republican case was weakened by Mitt Romney’s rather predictable defection, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made sure that everybody knew what was what.
With almost blinding speed, McConnell filled the Senate schedule with confirmation votes for more judges. It was a brutal and most effective gesture, letting Nancy “Rip the Transcript.” Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats knew that their stunt had fallen flat.
As we’ve noted here in the Briefing, this has been a very, very good week for President Trump and the Republican party. McConnell’s move on Wednesday made it a positively brilliant one.
The Democrats have been using the full power of their sway over the mainstream media to try and destroy the president via this impeachment sham. Mitch McConnell let them bring the ball into his court, stole it, then leapt over them with a tomahawk dunk.
I’ve been saying for some time now that President Trump’s greatest achievement is giving some backbone to the previously weak GOP. Mitch McConnell is an absolute political beast now. He is playing the game better than Lyndon Johnson did, which is saying a lot.
Obviously, the greatest byproduct of this newfound spine is the re-shaping of the judiciary. Any Democratic victory in the near future will be mitigated by Trump’s overwhelming influence on our courts.
Their only way around that will be complete anarchy, and that will be a very new discussion.

Nancy Pelosi is face-down in a box of whatever she can find right now.
