Hostage video, rope-a-dope or both?

Hostage video, rope-a-dope or both?
“I have been treated very well by my captors.”

Yesterday, in what can only be described as a hostage video, Nancy Pelosi stood before news cameras and announced that the Democrat-controlled House will continue unofficially trying to impeach President Trump for the high crime of defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Despite resisting the impeachment fever for months, Nancy’s hand was forced by the so-called Squad, the Impeachment-eager media, and the Twitter ResistanceLOL.

The Squad has been holding Nancy captive for nine months.  They know they can’t defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box.  So they’re hoping impeachment will do what voters won’t.

Nancy had two choices — either get on board or face the wrath of the ResistanceLOL.

This never would have happened if Nancy had stood up to the Radical Fringe. But she didn’t. She caved and caved and caved some more. And now her Frankenstein monster is coming for her.

What choice did Nancy have but to do a hostage video saying all the buzzwords her captors expect?  I can just imagine AOC and Rashida Tlaib standing outside of view wearing balaclavas and holding AK-47s on their captive as she spoke to the cameras.

With Nancy’s hostage video, ResistanceLOL Twitter erupted with uncontained delight.  Finally!  Finally Trump is going down.  THIS TIME WE HAVE HIM!!!

The media is hailing this official announcement of an unofficial “impeachment inquiry” as “HISTORIC!”

Okay, sure.  It’s historic.  But only in the sense that for the first time in history a political party decided to commit suicide leading into an election year.

With that hostage video, Nancy stepped down as Speaker and took up the mantle of Suicide Cult Leader.

Suicide cult leader

I suppose it’s also historic because never in the history of Congress has the Speaker of the House been held hostage by a bunch of radical kooks masquerading as legislators.

The fact is, Nancy’s hostage video was not an announcement of an official impeachment inquiry.  All she did was give her imprimatur to what has already been going on in the Democrat-controlled House since January.

In other words, nothing changed.  Not one thing.

For the House to hold an actual impeachment inquiry, Nancy would need to call a full vote.

And no matter how many threats she gets from the Squad and the ResistanceLOL, Nancy will never do that.

The House went to the Democrats in 2018 thanks to moderate Dems who won swing districts.  Swing voters are not keen on impeaching President Trump.  And if the House officially votes for an impeachment inquiry, those moderate Democrats will be forced to go on the record.  And that will bite them in the ass in November 2020.

She might be a doddering clown, but Pelosi is politically savvy enough to know an official House vote would put an end to the Democrat majority.

In the end, Nancy’s hostage video was nothing but political rope-a-dope.

She’s trying to appease her radical fringe without actually doing anything that would put 2020 at risk.

But it’s already at risk. Nancy echoing any impeachment talk is taking the Democrats down a road that is littered with landmines.

The Squad will never be satisfied with lip-service or half measures.  There is no compromising with them.  So if they catch on that Nancy’s official announcement of an unofficial impeachment inquiry was rope-a-dope, they will be furious.

And not just them.

The ResistanceLOL, who wasted no time yesterday popping open the champagne and doing a victory dance, will be once again left crestfallen just as they were when Hillary lost and when Mueller sputtered out like a wet fart.

Their grief will instantly turn to rage.  And that rage will be directed at Nancy Pelosi.

The ResistanceLOL – including the news media – will accept nothing short of President Trump driven out of office.  But there’s just no “there” there.  And Nancy knows it.

The fact is, Pelosi is in a no-win situation here.

And yesterday’s hostage video did nothing to change that.

When you add to that the fact that the White House will be releasing both the transcript of this supposed “high crime” phone conversation as well as the phony whistleblower’s report, Nancy’s no-win situation can only go from bad to worse.

And of course, waiting in the wings, is the true Ukraine scandal featuring Joe Biden and his son (with a special appearance by the Hillary campaign and the DNC). As I said the other day, this phony whistleblower narrative might set off a bomb, but it will detonate over the wrong target.

Which may explain why President Trump is more than happy to call Nancy’s bluff and release the information.

In the hopes of appeasing her captors, Nancy Pelosi just walked the Democrat House into a propeller.

And I admit, I find that all manner of entertaining.

    I hear the Democrat caucus is meeting this morning to finalize plans to slip the surly bonds of earth and wait for the arrival of the Mother Ship to take them all away.

    The announcement says that refreshments will be served.
