Opinion – Mark Sidney – President Trump seems to be a master of political Judo.
As I understand it, the art of Judo involves using your opponent’s energy, and attempted attacks against them. This is precisely what Trump has been doing to Democrats, and his RINO haters, for over 3 years now.
In the most recent example, Fox News is reporting that President Trump is preparing a letter to present Pelosi with, informing her that the White House will not cooperate with her until her House holds a vote on impeachment. 😂 #Winning.
According to TGWP: ‘Fox New was told that the letter the White House will send to Speaker Pelosi Friday arguing the administration doesn’t have to comply with the impeachment inquiry until there is an actual floor vote setting the parameters of the probe will be consistent with the letter House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent to the Speaker earlier Thursday, Chad Pergram reported.’
After the ‘Russian Collusion Delusion” fizzled out, taking the last shred of the media’s credibility with it, the Democrats, IMHO, desperate to stop Trump before declass, grasping for anything, conjured up this “whistleblower” complaint. I put ‘Whistleblower’ in quotes as the person who allegedly wrote it, admits to not even witnessing the event.
It’s already backfired, BIGLY, as Adam Schiff has seemingly been caught lying about his conversations with the whistleblower/spy (Dems call the person a whistleblower, Trump calls them a spy.) . The New York Times published this piece entitled: “Schiff Got Early Account of Accusations as Whistle-Blower’s Concerns Grew”
Here is an excerpt from the piece:
‘The C.I.A. officer approached a House Intelligence Committee aide with his concerns about Mr. Trump only after he had had a colleague first convey them to the C.I.A.’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that initial avenue for airing his allegations through the C.I.A. was unfolding, the officer then approached the House aide. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.
The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and file a whistle-blower complaint.’
Schiff, in his infinite … or is the word I’m looking for infinitesimal, wisdom later tried to claim that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower”:

Hell hath frozen over, Adam Schiff busted telling a blatant lie? This NEVER happens lol.
Anyway, because of this, what smells like a set up to me, the Democrats in the House initiated an impeachment inquiry. Yet Pelosi has thus far refused to hold a vote on the inquiry. So Trump played his hand, and called her bluff. Or so we expect him to demand they hold a vote on impeachment, using Pelosi’s own threat against her and her party.
“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Thursday sent a letter to Pelosi calling on the Speaker to suspend the impeachment investigation into President Trump until she can establish “transparent and equitable rules and procedures.”
“Unfortunately, you have given no clear indication as to how your impeachment inquiry will proceed — including whether key historical precedents or basic standards of due process will be observed,” McCarthy wrote in a letter to Pelosi.
“In addition, the swiftness and recklessness with which you have proceeded has already resulted in committee chairs attempting to limit minority participation in scheduled interviews, calling into question the integrity of such an inquiry,” McCarthy added.
A full House vote will expose all vulnerable red-state Democrats who are up for a tough reelection in 2020 and force them to put their necks on the line in voting in favor of impeachment.”
Trump still seems to be miles ahead of the Democrats, always seemingly beating them at their own game. It’s really a pleasure to watch. Enjoy the show!
