I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to Jesus and all of you nice readers who were kind enough to vote against President Donald J. Trump and the radical Republican candidates he was supporting in the recent elections. I was a little disappointed and depressed that the U.S. Senate remained in Trump’s hands, and he actually picked up a few new U.S. Senate seats. At that time I was personally unwilling to call it a Blue Wave. Perhaps I was just too tired from staying up all night watching the election returns. The feeling of being depressed continued into the early morning daylight when I finally decided to drown my sorrows with something better than Jack Daniels—scrambled eggs, beef tips, hash browns, and pancakes with blueberry syrup at IHOP. Everything felt much better after munching on that.
Right now, I am going to officially declare a Blue Wave. The television news media were unwilling to do that Tuesday night. Many races across the country were too close to call on election night, and they are still counting the ballots, doing recounts, or proceeding toward run-off elections and court battles. The good news here is that the vote counting in a number of these tight races appears to be swinging against Trump and his candidates—while a few other races are swinging toward Trump. That means the Trumpian pickup of new seats in the U.S. Senate will be reduced in number, and the anti-Trump forces in the U.S. House of Representatives will obtain even more house seats than those gained on election night. That is all good news to me. The television news media, such as Don Lemon’s nightly show on CNN, finally feel secure enough to officially declare that a Blue Wave did indeed occur in Tuesday’s election.
The best good news was winning the U.S. House of Representatives by a wide margin and the fact that this margin is increasing even now with the previously mentioned late vote counts and recounts. This is enormously good news for two reasons:
(1) As called for by the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. House of Representatives will finally have a watchdog check on Trump’s activities and any presidential crimes or misuses and/or abuses of power he may have committed. Trump knows that now. He is scared silly and hopping mad about it too. Witness his angry behavior toward the news media and especially his angry, racist behavior toward African-American reporters—over the past few days. Notice all the lies he is telling. Trump appears to be coming unglued, and it is only going to get worse after the newly elected house members are sworn in on January 3, 2019. After that date, Trump will experience the greatest political bowel blockage in American history, and one of the greatest bowel reamings to loosen it for him. If Trump has committed high crimes or misdemeanors in any aspect of his life—and Robert Mueller knows about it—Trump has only 54 days left before his presidency begins unraveling and charging toward final oblivion.
(2) The new Democrat and Independent majority in the U.S. House of Representatives will have subpoena-issuing power, and in January 2019, it’s assorted committees will begin immediate and comprehensive investigations into potential wrongdoing by Trump and his minions, including any cabinet members who have been playing fast and loose with your tax dollars and using their federal positions for personal gain. In other words, all of the bad things that have been done in secret during the Trump regime really will be shouted from the rooftops (Luke 12:3). Corrupt officials will resign, and some may pay large fines and/or serve prison sentences. Personally, I am predicting that infamous Congressman and Trump lackey Devin Nunes (R-California) will quickly find his butt under investigation for house ethics violations—and may be officially censured or expelled from the U.S. House of Representatives.
Robert Mueller will complete his investigation soon, and his staff is already writing the report on his investigation, probably a very large report with extensive appendices. Recent rumblings inside the Trump regime were indicating that Trump planned to permanently prevent the American people from ever seeing the Mueller report.
A recent legal discussion on CNN indicated that the new U.S. House of Representatives can issue a subpoena demanding that the FBI send a copy of the Mueller report to the house—and then the house will release all of its unclassified contents to the American people—people just like you and me. In addition, CNN cited past court decisions and legal precedents that would most likely prevent Trump from successfully invoking Executive Privilege to stop release of a report like this one. Therefore, it looks as if the American people will finally be able to read all—or nearly all—about the Mueller proceedings and the final results of his now famous investigation.
A Blue Wave did occur on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. We just had to wait a week or two to glimpse its final outlines. It occurred because of you folks—people who care about the things of Jesus, love, truth, honesty, honor, freedom, equality, and classic American fair play on a level playing field. You kept the faith with founding father Benjamin Franklin. You voted in favor of the U.S. Constitution and the American Republic he and his colleagues created in that sweltering Philadelphia summer about 230 years ago. You demonstrated that you can “keep it.” God bless you all, and have a wonderful evening.
