It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again

The Wicked Witch of the West Coast explains why she lives in a gingerbread house in Napa instead of in her SF district.

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Here’s a flashback from 2006:

Pelosi: Bush Impeachment `Off the Table’

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi promised Wednesday that when her party takes over, the new majority will not attempt to remove President Bush from office, despite earlier pledges to the contrary from others in the caucus.

“I have said it before and I will say it again: Impeachment is off the table,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference.

Pelosi also said Democrats, despite complaining about years of unfair treatment by the majority GOP, “are not about getting even” with Republicans.

2006 was the high-water mark of the progressive blogosphere. They beat Joe Lieberman in an upset primary, due in large part to a growing anti-war sentiment that was being largely ignored by the media. Lieberman went on to win reelection in the general, but the Democrats were unexpectedly swept into power by a national electorate that was tired of George Bush and the Republicans. Then Nancy Pelosi threw cold water on the prog bloggers when she announced that there would be no impeachment.

It was the smart play.

Never underestimate your enemies. Despite some of the things she says and does, you have to assume that Nancy didn’t get where she is by being stupid. Bush was unpopular but he was on his way out anyway. Win or lose, by the time they finished an impeachment it would be 2008 and the country would be focused on picking his successor. The CW was that the Democrats were favored to win in 2008, but impeachment could muck that up.

That brings us to today.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Trump ‘not worth’ the ‘divisive’ costs of impeachment

Bucking calls from many Democrats to try to remove President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flatly stated she is “not for impeachment” in an interview with The Washington Post published Monday.

The 17-term California Democrat recalled the divisiveness of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, which she said was “horrible for the country.” She said she would not be willing to go through that again without “overwhelming and bipartisan” justification.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it,” Pelosi told The Post.

Pelosi’s position may not be popular with the Democratic base. Two-thirds of Democratic voters say Congress should get the ball rolling on impeachment, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

Nancy has seen the real polls, and Nancy has seen the evidence against Trump. The polls show that Trump is gaining popularity. The Democrats may hate him with a white-hot passion, but the general public is more evenly split. But her real problem is the evidence – they don’t have any.

The Democrats could push impeachment thru the House on a party-line vote. But the Senate has to hold a trial, presided over by Chief Justice Roberts. They have to present evidence and witnesses. And Trump’s lawyers get to present a defense. It is one thing to make wild accusations to the Democrat-friendly, Trump-hating news media. It is a whole ‘nuther kettle of fish to make those accusations in a court setting.

Despite Special Persecutor Robert Mueller’s best (worst) efforts, they don’t have anything on Trump. Nada planada. If the Democrats bring impeachment without good cause, it will backfire. Not only would it virtually guarantee Trump’s reelection, it would probably cost the Democrats the House as well.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, Nancy doesn’t have the same grip on power that she had 13 years ago. The Loony Left is on the rise, and they want blood.

    Legal question:

    Are impeachment trials governed by the federal rules of evidence and procedure?

    A: No. The Senate makes its own rules, and even if the rules were violated there is no appeal.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Legacy and Prestige admissions are very common, not sure why they got sports involved, those involved should be banned from NCAA comp for a few years.

        • lateblum says:

          I would guess sports became involved because sports raise funds for the schools by themselves. And success in sports raises the public image of schools to entice better athletes who will make those sports more visible and if successful, may help the schools “make it” to major sporting events like the NCAA ir NIT tournaments, etc. Both are big moneymakers for the schools.

        • Constance says:

          Sports were likely involved because sports programs recruit students that don’t meet the general academic standards of the University and the rich kids in question didn’t meet the general academic standards.

  9. Anthony says:

    Leave the celebs alone and go after the colleges. Desperate (disparate lol?) Housewives wouldn’t be spending their money if there was nothing to buy. I’m not gonna beat up on the rich like some Dem/Soc. Its like vice cops busting people for buying weed on the street instead of the dealers. Supply /demand.

    • Island Girl says:

      • Anthony says:

        Imagine how these ‘rich and famous’ people feel now that everyone knows that their parenting skills have produced kids that are so dumb that it takes half a million just to get them admitted lmao

        • DeniseVB says:

          I remember reading about Charlie Sheen being such a talented baseball player in high school that he was not only being recruited by elite schools, but MLB took notice too. Then he got expelled from high school, and blew it all. You’d think daddy could have “bought” him out of that? Martin Sheen was already a major star at the time.

          • lateblum says:

            Perhaps daddy was a man of integrity? I hope so. Also daddy may have been wise enough to “know” his kid would blow it as well and chose to save his money for bail funds.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I think the celebs deserve to face serious financial consequences, but unless they are uncooperative no jail time. Bail was excessive (1 million for Mossimo and 250k for Huffman).
      Do admit that after watching Lynette on American Crime ( a very proggy show) and seeing her post killary love a part of me smirks and i love the fact that there must be thousands of parents sweating bricks. How deep is this. How fast will people turn rat. Someone had to hook them up. Are they next?
      Unfortunately for them it is the left promoting eat the rich and at least Huffman has been a visible supporter of the commies. No way, in today’s climate, that this just goes away.
      Saw several posts today about racism and justice. A slap on the wrist will not satisfy the mob that wants to eradicate Carlson for things said on shock radio over a decade ago. Add in jussie and his indictment on 16 charges. Not the best environment for Aunt Becky.
      Dozens were caught in this net. More than a few of the names sound hispanic to me, but the auto response was to scream racism without any facts.
      Ugh.

      • Anthony says:

        Do you think the schools should pay any price at all? Alumni have been making HUGE donations forever to get their less than brilliant offspring admitted into the college they attended (see “George W. Bush). “Legacy Students” are nothing new, and everyone knows that. It might not be honorable, but it is legal.

        On the other hand, why should colleges who already charge ridiculous tuition and receive billions in federal tax dollars get off scott free? If they weren’t selling admissions, nobody would be able to buy them.

        • Mothy67 says:

          I think you misread me. I think those who sold admittance should receive the most punishment. I think the buyer’s deserve heavy fines.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I know, right? Cutting off the federal funds to the schools involved would probably pay for the wall 😀

          • foxyladi14 says:

            Yep!

          • lateblum says:

            Wouldn’t cutting off federal funding to the schools make scholarships ever more scarce and allow even fewer students access to those schools? I wish greater oversight of these schools – and the other schools not already mentioned were the answer. But the implementation of oversight might also be easily compromised.
            Don’t schools already have legacy programs? Couldn’t those donations from alums assist the less advantaged yet qualified students? Or if there are non-alums who donate, make those contributions a 50/50 deal. 50% going to a scholarship fund for disadvantaged yet qualified applicants and 50% going to a building fund or other targeted fund.
            Btw, last year, Northwestern University in Evanston, IL announced their capital campaign funds had exceeded $4B and were hoping to raise its capital fund bottom line to $5B by the end of 2020. University of Chicago had already exceeded $5B last fall. I wonder how mnay of those dollars were from parents who expected admissions for their own progeny.

          • Constance says:

            The Feds should also heavily tax school endowments and use the money to cover defaulted student loans. Right now Democrats are talking about using our taxes to “invest in” forgiving all student loans.

    • votermom says:

      I’m meh on the bribery of coaches but the SAT & ACT cheating and gaming makes me mad. Specially the “get the kid diagnosed as needing accommodation” so they get extra time to finish the test.
      Makes me doubly proud of KTYs modest 31 ACT – she’s not a great test taker and she worked so hard for that.

      • Mothy67 says:

        The sports part annoys me more than the cheating. Brat has invested countless hours participating. Right now it’s volleyball season. Practice two days a week and two game days. She invests a lot of time and energy. There’s swim, softball, track, gymnastics, dance, tae kwon do, and archery. Still hasn’t gotten a B. I knew a dedication to sports would be an asset. (My neighbors had both daughters get full rides to a state school) i have no idea what lay ahead, but the thought of her being sidelined because some parent faked participation really pisses me off. There are days she leaves at 5:30 am to practice swim before school. Some days she doesn’t get home until after 8 and then there’s homework. No faking sports is not okay with me, but I think it’s a very old tradition. I had a roommate in college who went to UPenn. Her obituary read she went on a field hockey scholarship. Huh???? Didn’t play in the two years we lived together.I
        That being said i think the bigger criminals are those that facilitated it.

        • Mothy67 says:

          The reason cheating bothers me less (it still very much annoys me) is because I think a very high score from a mediocre student would set off alarms.

      • DeniseVB says:

        How’s the munchkin feeling?

        I’m pretty meh on the SAT/ACT cheating too, kids have been paying kids to sit in for them since those tests were started. I just don’t understand the sports bribe. Playing on an elite college level would be pretty obvious at the first practice wouldn’t it ?

      • Anthony says:

        Once again, look to the universities. Someone there had to be putting money in their pocket. And yes, you SHOULD be very proud of KTYs honorably earned scores.

        • votermom says:

          thanks! I am proud of how hard she works

          • Mothy67 says:

            That’s a very good score. Think too much weight is given to those. Many kids are way to stressed when taking. Even the PSSAs have gotten out of hand. They stress the kids out for two weeks before exams. Letters sent home reminding me to feed her and make sure she gets enough sleep. They provide stress balls? Then they don’t even give parents the results until October (test are end of March) so if you kid is behind you won’t even know until well into the next grade. I would so get a tutor if told that she was struggling. Tests are evaluated/graded by a computer. Why does it take 6 months for compulsory test results.

    The PNW goes all-in for the homeless Democrat vote:

    The Washington legislature is one step closer to legalizing homeless encampments statewide. Last week, Democratic lawmakers passed through committee legislation, introduced by Representative Mia Gregerson, that would usurp the authority of city governments and legalize camping in all “plazas, courtyards, parking lots, sidewalks, public transportation facilities, public buildings, shopping centers, parks, [and] natural and wildlife areas” throughout the state.

    If passed, the bill, inspired in part by the work of Seattle University professor Sara Rankin, who claims to “advance the civil, constitutional, and human rights of visibly poor people” through “the repeal of laws that criminalize homelessness and poverty,” would represent the most significant extension of “survival crime” theory into American law. Survival-crime theory has been percolating through academic journals since the late 1980s. In a widely circulated paper, Rankin argues that the “intersectionality of poverty and homelessness” forces marginalized individuals to commit crimes to ensure their basic survival; therefore, state and local governments should abolish prohibitions against public camping, drug consumption, and low-level property crime.

    All that precipitation should keep the poop from accumulating in the streets. Just make sure there are no homeless people living uphill from you.

      FYI the rain doesn’t wash away poop piles it just causes them to mold instead of dry out. Of course due to global warming we are experiencing colder winters with snow at sea level so in that weather the poop freezes until spring thaw when it molds.

    “Thread”

    • votermom says:

      One of the ways Elite Colleges shut out middle class kids is because they don’t give merit aid ( “all our admits deserve merit”) so even with “need aid” most middle class families can’t afford it even if their kid gets in.
      I think a good way for Elite Colleges to accept bribes would be to say outright – our tuition is x amount and our minium admit criteria is this SAT score and this GPA.
      If you are one level below the minimum score/GPA, we may be able to admit you if you also pay the tuition of a more qualified kid.

        When I am in charge, admission to public colleges and universities will be by competitive examination only, without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. All “studies” courses and other touchy-feely majors will be eliminated.

        Private schools can do what they want but they will get no public funds.

      Years ago, a prof at UPenn told my sister that there are two grades at UPenn: A=some brains; B= parental donations are at stake. It’s all farce.

      • DeniseVB says:

        We weren’t rich enough to play, kids weren’t smart enough to compete with the Einsteins. Both did get accepted to small, private colleges because they saw diamonds in the rough. One was All State in two sports, one was a competitive figure skater, both worked as lifeguards. It helped explain those “average” grades 😀

    • elliesmom says:

      The reality is there is a college out there for just about everybody. The trick for kids and parents is to match a kid with a college he or she can be admitted to, succeed in academically, at a price that makes it a good investment in time and money. Most of us seem to be able to do it when we shop for a car or a house, but we leave our common sense behind when we go looking for colleges. If you’re sending your daughter husband hunting, then a cheaper school near one of the ivies can be a better investment than the ivy itself.

        My son just wanted to be a cop. In the 90’s, a college degree was required, so he wanted to pursue criminal justice. One school that accepted him had 10k kids, the other had 900. It came down to his h.s. counselor advising him….do you want to be a small fish in a big pond, or big fish in a little pond. He thrived in the little pond.

        As for husband hunting, I found mine in a bar, it’s not rocket science 😛

    ‘PUBLIC PRAYER JIHAD’ – Another Muslim Brotherhood tactic for pushing Islam down the throats of Americans

    Good ol’ whack job Liz Warren discovers who is responsible for the Ethopian plane crash.
    Yep, President Trump.
    Call off the investigation; Elizabeth Warren has revealed what caused the Ethiopian Airlines flight to mysteriously crash on Sunday, killing 157 people. Capitalism did it — in collusion with Trump:

    “Serious questions have been raised about whether these planes were pressed into service without additional pilot training in order to save money,” Ms. Warren declared in an email to her presidential campaign supporters. She added: “The Boeing 737 MAX 8 is a major driver of Boeing profits. In the coming weeks and months, Congress should hold hearings on whether an administration that famously refused to stand up to Saudi Arabia to protect Boeing arms sales has once again put lives at risk for the same reason.” She thus manages to wrap an attack on capitalism around an antiwar, anti-Pentagon, anti-Trump conspiracy theory.

      “Since when is Ethiopia part of the US? They train their own pilots and have their own airlines. They made a free choice. The Trump administration has nothing to do with it. The FAA approved the 737 Max 8 in January 2016. Can’t blame Trump for something that happened under the obozzo administration.”
