Some thoughts on the Cohen plea

Cohen plea

I came down with a vicious sore throat and fever yesterday.

So what I miss?

Just kidding.

I kept up with the news while I was lying on the couch coughing.

And I have a few things I want to say about not only the Cohen plea deal.

But before we begin, let me say a few things about Mollie Tibbetts.

When I saw the news that her body was found and an illegal alien was arrested for her murder, like most of you, I was incensed. Another senseless murder that could have been prevented.

It’s hard not to be upset about that.

But at this time, I don’t want to write much about Mollie Tibbetts or her murderer for one reason.

Her family must be going through hell right now.

And I don’t want to use this website to add to the cacophony already screaming at us from all directions. Instead, I want to respect the Tibbetts family’s need to grieve in peace by not wielding their daughter’s death as a weapon.

We know the problem.

We know what needs to be done to address it.

For decades now our lax border enforcement has had very real, very violent and often deadly results.

The solution isn’t to glom on to the Tibbetts family’s grief and use it as a political bludgeon. I would rather leave them to grieve in peace.

The solution is to vote in November — vote out the Party of Illegal Aliens and bring about an end to our insane, self-destructive and lax immigration enforcement.

Now, let’s deal with Michael Cohen.

I watched Leftist Twitter spin themselves into orgasmic fits of glee over the Cohen plea deal and I couldn’t help but be just a tad tickled by it.

Now, far be it from me to offer a legal summary of the Cohen plea.

Unlike the thousands of folks who graduated from the Twitter School of Law, I don’t make any claims of being a legal expert.

But I have become a bit of Leftist expert.

You see, it isn’t just in defeat that the Left pushes too hard and too far.

They also do it when they think they’ve won something.

Let me give you an example.

There have been nine special elections to replace members of the House.

Democrats have lost eight of them.

Their only win was Conor Lamb — a pro-second Amendment moderate in Pennsylvania.

And yet their sputtering excitement over that one victory (out of nine) was somewhat comical.

“We’re one for nine!!! That’s right, Trumpers! Suck it! Blue Wave, baby!!!”

They always overreact.

They become inconsolable in defeat and overly confident in even the smallest victory.

If this were a game of football. The Left would do an end zone dance after making a first down on their own fifteen yard line.

And reading through the Left’s reactions on Twitter to the Cohen plea, I see them doing it all over again.

They are so sure that this time – THIS TIME – they got Trump.

He’s going down, baby!

Impeachment!! Yeah!!!

Of course the news media is amplifying this theme and hammering this like Michael Cohen is the next H.R. Haldeman.

But he’s not.

And the media, as they always do, aren’t so much “reporting” as they are wishful thinking.

Then their wishful thinking fuels the over-the-top, breathless excitement of the ResistanceLOL who then fuel the news media’s wishful thinking and round and round they go.

And when it doesn’t pan out the way they think, they’re going to lose their minds.

If you thought Hillary’s defeat made them unhinged, just wait until the Cohen plea doesn’t get them what they are now fully expecting.

And like everything else the Left does, this is going to backfire on them.

Because they are going to ratchet up the Impeachment hysteria to Spinal Tap 11 just three months out from the Midterms.

And I’m not so certain that is going to help them in November.

In fact, I think it will backfire.

One thing certain about Trump supporters is the attempts to dispirit us only embolden us.

The impeachment fever pitch isn’t going to stop us from turning out in November. Instead, it will ensure we do.

President Trump’s policies are very popular.

When push comes to shove, Americans are happy with the direction he’s taking the country.

And having the Left shrieking about impeachment now is going to fire us up and vote to keep Trump’s agenda moving forward.

The ResistanceLOL and the media are so blinded by Trump hatred that they are incapable of understanding the theory of unintended consequences.

And their rabid excitement and delight over the Cohen plea deal is going to have some unintended consequences – namely that Trump supporters will flood to the polls in November.

Now, am I disgusted with the Mueller investigation and the egregiously disproportionate application of justice we’ve seen over the last few years?

Absolutely.

And no, I’m not one of those people who thinks Jeff Sessions is lying in wait about to spring a trap.

Now, early in 2017, I wondered if Sessions was quietly working behind the scenes. But that was more than a year ago. And there has been no sign that this is the case. So I don’t hold out any hope of that anymore.

And I certainly don’t believe that Mueller is getting this crap out of the way so he can nail Hillary before the November election. Mostly because I’m not delusional and do not engage in wishful or magical thinking.

I know the Justice Department is corrupt and the deck is stacked against the President.

But I also know President Trump. And I know he will fight this as only he can.

Bottom line is this, the Left is investing too much hope in the Cohen plea.

And I just don’t see it turning out the way they expect.

All the glee, the eager excitement is going to turn to bile in their throats.

Which, in the end, will make them even more unhinged than they already are.

And voters don’t particularly respond well to the mentally unhinged.

One final thing, as irritating as I find Hannity, this segment with Mark Levin is actually very instructive. And since I didn’t attend the prestigious Twitter School of Law, I’m going to defer to him to explain it all.

    If I had a dollar for everytime the left screeches, “this is is the end for Trump!!!” I can pay for the wall myself.
    It’s like the 10,000th time this is the end for Trump. The left fails to see that they do not have a platform, nobody will vote for them.
    Impeaching a President is not going to win elections.

    Love Trump’s tweet! Brilliant!

    Even before he became a turncoat, I never trusted Cohen. He has SNEAK/SNAKE written all over his face. I wouldn’t trust him to walk me across the street.

    Still no ‘there’ there Dems.

    Lanny Davis might be a worse lawyer than Cohen.

    Dianny, I’m with you on Sessions doing anything to the actual bad guys. But he supposedly brought in Huber to look at the real black hats. If this is so, why have there been absolutely no leaks from that investigation? DC is leak city. Just makes me wonder if there’s really a Huber investigation.
