From The New York Post:
As I watched Speaker Nancy Pelosi surround herself with large American flags and wrap her impeachment putsch in the language of the Founders, a Mark Twain line came to mind.
“Don’t try and teach a pig to sing,” he warned. “It’s a waste of your time, and it annoys the pig.”
Yet that’s exactly what Pelosi is doing.
No matter how she dresses it up, her impeachment is a pig.
Does Pelosi hate Donald Trump? Of course she does. She hates that he’s president, that he’s building an economy that is the envy of the world and that he appeals to voters her party used to own. She’s turned him into such a villain that every success of his is a failure for her.
She calls him a coward, an imposter and keeps saying “all roads lead to Putin.”
Actually, all roads under Trump lead to jobs, jobs, jobs. Some 266,000 were added in November, driving the unemployment rate down to 3.5%, the lowest in 50 years. Wages climbed by 3.1% annually — all signals the economic expansion is still strong.
The report was such a blockbuster that even Trump haters had to admit it. “Trump Parries Impeachment With a Boom,” The New York Times said on page one. But if it looked with a fair eye, the Times would see plenty of other good news, too.
On the global stage, China made positive comments about settling its trade dispute with the US, which helped lift the stock market to new records. Iranians continued to risk their lives demanding more freedoms from the mullahs and Iraqis continued to demand that Iran get out of their country.
Israelis marked the two-year anniversary of Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s eternal capital and moving our embassy there. Just as two years ago, the anniversary came and went without major disturbances despite predictions of mayhem from the “Arab street.”
And despite the media fixation on the frat-boy antics of Canada’s Justin Trudeau and France’s Emmanuel Macron, the NATO meeting demonstrated that Trump’s persistent demand that Europeans meet their financial obligations for the common defense is paying dividends. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that by the end of 2020, the delinquents will have spent $130 billion more since Trump’s election.
