THE THREE UNWISEMEN

The three unwisemen are following a light, but it is not a heavenly light.  It is the headlight of a speeding locomotive and they are trapped in a tunnel, on the tracks.

Whenever someone says “with all due respect” they usually only say that because they are about to act with disrespect, but want to come across as respectful. And so it is—with all due respect—I explain to you the three kinds of stupid that have possessed these three unwise men: Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, and Chuck Schumer, who have come bearing gifts of fool’s gold, Frankenstein, and myth.

There are three kinds of stupid, and in this case they are guilty of practicing all three.

Kind #1: You are following Nancy Pelosi. Following Nancy Pelosi, like socialism, has never worked.  Ask anyone who has followed her. Ask Kamala Harris. Nancy is a political train wreck who manages to survive by postponing disaster, but she cannot prevent the inevitable.

She is known for one amazing tactic: She comes up with a crazy idea, but she wants others to think it’s their idea. She feigned not wanting Trump impeached and then got others to take the lead on impeachment.

She is what is known as a ‘Jonah’. There’s something you must always remember about ‘Jonahs’: they are jinxed and bad things happen when they are present, but when the plane crashes, they survive. It’s everyone around them who dies.

Come close Adam, Jerry and Chuck, while I explain: there is no version of this fiasco that will have a good outcome for you. Here’s why: you have done nothing for the people who put you in office. You have wasted most of President Trump’s first term and millions of taxpayer dollars on fruitless investigations, libelous insults, and vicious attacks. You have done nothing for Americans.  Zip. Nada.

We get why you what you did. You have no vision, no solution, and no plan for America.  All we know about you is what you are against. You are literally accomplishing nothing for Americans. (That’s how mad you’ve made me. I hate the word ‘literally’ and you made me use it. Shame on you!)

Kind #2. You have stupidly declared war on 70 million voters. You three kings of disorient are declaring war on 70 million voters so far. While you are obsessed with getting Trump out of office, you are blind to how your ludicrous tactics are playing in millions of living rooms across America. To them you are not heroes. You are out-of-control demagogues who want to overthrow a legal election—their election—and who want to nullify their vote.

Not only are you trying to overrule their vote, you add insult to injury by calling anyone who voted for Trump racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, and worst of all (and, here is the irony)—stupid.

You don’t get it. But then how could you. You live in a bubble. You believe your own hype. You believe that by slinging mud and throwing rancid red meat to your base you will increase your chances of winning elections.  Here’s what you have actually done:

  • You have galvanized Trump’s base. He has the highest approval rating among Republicans since Ronald Reagan. You have inspired his base to increase contributions to his election campaign by tens of millions of dollars. You have driven people to our side—especially minorities, those on the fence, and independent voters.
  • You have used up your currency with Americans who don’t even like Trump, but who can’t stomach how unfair and nasty you are to him and his family.

Kind #3. You are ruining Christmas. This is by far your worst mistake. You are extending hearings into the Christmas season. Americans were sick of this already, now you want to sling mud during Hallmark Movies.  Instead of Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Men, we must endure your ceaseless screeching during the Christmas season. Your impeachment hearings will sound like fingernails across a blackboard. Even your own party will hate it.

And finally, it is unwise to stake your future and the future of your party on yet another expensive investigation.  This one, like the last one, has produced zero justification and will die with a whimper. Some of your fellow Socialist/Democrats have done far worse than anything you are accusing Trump of having done, and you gave them a pass.  None of your witnesses are credible. None of your accusations have been substantiated. None of any of this rises to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and still you have made it abundantly clear that you will try to impeach Trump, no matter what.

You are doing it because Nancy says you have to. She said, “Trump has left us no choice but to impeach.” Your downfall, unwisemen, is that you believe her and are following a star that is headed over a cliff.
