If the Omnibus spending bill was a revenge attack against President Donald Trump, what will be the costs to the GOP in the 2018 mid-term elections? Is this a price that the establishment Republicans are willing to pay? What can President Trump do during the next six months to get the GOP under control? More importantly, what can be done to keep this so-called Democrat victory from rolling up control of the House in November. There is a lot at stake here. You can bet that the Dems have three things in mind: Higher Taxes, Impeach Trump, eliminate the Second Amendment. Time to sound the alarm.
As Written and Reported By Thomas Lifson for the American Thinker:
I, too, wish President Trump had vetoed that spending bill that put smiles on the faces of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and permitted them to gloat openly. The only reason for his cave-in that I find credible is what he said: that the huge spending increase for our now depleted military cannot wait. Our airplanes and helicopters are falling from the skies, and roughly half of some aircraft models are not airworthy, some of them suffering cannibalization of their parts to keep the rest flying.
I suspect that his attention now is focused on the pending talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and he absolutely requires a credible threat to use our military. Iran and other bad actors are watching closely, and military weakness going into those talks would be my priority if the responsibility were on my shoulders.
But what do we, his base, want to happen?
Is revenge against Trump worth handing Congress to the Democrats? Would it be so satisfying to see Trump impeached and therefore punished for allowing half a year of terrible spending to take place?……….
