"Never let a crisis go to waste" - Rahm Emmanual, Chief of Staff in 2008 to President Barack Obama, in the wake of the great recession.
That's been the Democrat playbook for well over a decade now, starting from the first days of Obama's Presidency back in 2008.
Fast forward to 2020, after the Covid crisis emerged from China, Hillary Clinton told Joe Biden “This would be a terrible crisis to waste, as the old saying goes.” Her goal? Advising Joe Biden to push for even more government control of our healthcare.
None of this is new. The left is just resorting back to its old playbook.
Now, just as then, in the first hours and days after one of the worst tragedies in our nation's history, we have the dual threat of the totalitarian left and the political censorship of their allies in Big Tech bearing down on America.
Totalitarianism and Cancel Culture. They are two sides to the same coin.
In the hours after the tragic attack on the US Capitol, Democrat leadership in Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer immediately moved to draw up articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Let me say that again. AT THE SAME TIME President Trump releases a video calling off the violent mob to disperse and go home peacefully, the Democrats in Congress were moving full force ahead with "Never letting THIS Crisis go to waste."
It's a damn shame. All of it. All of this will do nothing but further tear our country apart and embolden our enemies.
This weekend I spoke to the media about the implications of impeaching the President at such a volatile time as we peacefully transition to another administration. It has to stop.
