It appears that Thursday is going to be a memorable day.
We are supposed to hear the testimony of both Professor Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee during what has turned out to be a proverbial three ring circus of political shenanigans designed to stop the approval of a more than qualified Supreme Court Justice.
On the same day, President Donald J. Trump and Deputy Director of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein are supposed to have a meeting at the White House which will end in Rod Rosenstein being fired, resigning, or being told to get back to work.
So, what are the consequences of these events?
As regards the hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee, a very good man may be disqualified from what should be his destiny as a result of scurrilous unproven accusations which are more befitting a schoolyard than a Senatorial Committee during such an important moment in our history.
However, if it goes the way which I believe that it will, the results of the hearing will show the entire nation and the rest of the world as well that the Democrats are bereft of ethics, morality, and any patriotism whatsoever. They will be shown to be exactly whom the majority of average Americans between the coasts believe them to be: ruthless ideological demagogues who are more interested in their political party’s future than they are in the future of the United States of America.
One man is in the eye of the hurricane as regards both of these events…President Donald J. Trump.
The reason being that in the first event if judge Cavanaugh is allowed to become the next Supreme Court Justice, that will give Conservatives a strong majority on the Supreme Court and will affect rulings for decades to come. Not only that, but it will allow the president the assurance that any bold steps which he takes in order to undo the disaster of the Obama presidency, if taken to the Supreme Court by the Democrats, will have a better chance of remaining in place.
In the case of the second event, with new leadership in the Department of Justice, as regards Rosenstein’s position as second-in-command, it will have a direct effect on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia Probe, which has yet to find any evidence of any member of Trump’s campaign staff or the President himself colluding with Russia in any form or fashion.
While I am thinking about all this, is it just me or have you noticed how well Trump handles his job in the middle of chaos? According to all the anonymous sources, the day-to-day activities in the White House are filled with chaos and grumbling. If that is the case, I hope it keeps up because Trump is accomplishing more in the short time that he has been president than his predecessors, Democrat or Republican.
So, will Thursday be like the Baptism Scene in the classic movie “The Godfather”, in which Michael Corleone “settles all family business” while standing in that beautiful cathedral becoming the Godfather of his sister’s baby?
Whatever happens, this will go down as a seminal moment in American history.
Considering how well the important things have gone under Trump’s leadership in the last almost 2 years, I would not bet against him if I were the Democratic hierarchy.
Until He Comes,
