Has 2020 been a 12 months to recollect or one to overlook? Among my 2020 disappointments had been leaders from each main events politicizing the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m personally not thrilled with the presidential election outcomes, however much more regarding is the cloud of doubt half of us have about our democratic election integrity.
We’ll start 2021 with Joe Biden as our president. This causes me to think about how 2021-2024 goes to play out after the political, social media and congressional precedents that had been established in the course of the previous 4 years. We now have the bar set very low for insulting, debasing and even impeaching a sitting president. It’s OK to assault him/her for look, age, faith or pores and skin shade…
We now perceive it’s racist to say “Make America Great Again” or “All Lives Matter” or to be crucial of “peaceful rioters and looters” as they burn police automobiles. We’ve had a 3-12 months investigation alleging a stolen election in 2016 that was solely attainable by President Trump having been within the pocket of the Russians.
Now after an election that was fraught with irregularities and fraud, we’re advised we should always simply transfer on, be good and cease being such dangerous losers. Liberals proceed insulting Trump voters with the identical vitriol they’ve used over the previous 4 years. Now they counsel we should always all come collectively as a result of Joe Biden is president.
Using established precedent, impeachment could also be initiated by interpretation of a president’s ideas throughout a cellphone name by those that weren’t truly listening to the cellphone name. There was zero laborious proof of quid professional quo between Trump and Ukrainian leaders, nonetheless there’s recorded video of President-elect Biden admitting to and laughing a couple of textbook quid professional quo with Ukraine that was confirmed by subsequent financial transactions.
How will those self same Democratic legislators behave in 2021 after they actually shed tears for the nationwide disgrace attributable to a cellphone name? Will they shed extra tears or be completely satisfied that we’ve got a president coming into workplace who’s already pre-accepted for impeachment? Will the biased media discover a technique to retain readers with out having punching baggage just like the Trump household to analyze and smear? Will related requirements be used to analyze and smear the Biden household – who arrive with pre-checked household corruption baggage?
Let’s see in 2021 if what goes round comes round.
Happy New Year.
