G’Day Podcast Mates and welcome to another edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, number 225!!! it is the Trump Impeachment edition with your unimpeachable hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.
This week we discuss the continued, unabated mania that the left has for impeaching Trump and we ask: who suffers most from this blindfolded denial? Are there Dems who will be elected because the likes of Nadler and Schiff spend the remainder of the 116th Congress retracing the sterile steps of Robert Mueller and his Hillary-supporting attack dogs looking for actual Russian collusion? Or does this appear (as Nancy Pelosi seems to think) to be a losing strategy?
Another way to ask this is simply this: can the left in America ever really get over the 2016 election? Can the average upper middle class elitist coastal-dwelling liberal ever accept that it is okay to just allow Trump to be President as the legitimately elected leader of the nation? Their mantra has been, until now, “this cannot stand.” Needless to say, that is an infantile response to an adverse event. You don’t learn anything about the world reacting that way.
Next, speaking of “adverse” events, the Liberals (read: the right) in Australia have won a stunning election. It appears that every poll and every pundit predicted that Scott Morrison’s government would go down to defeat and yet they won a third term. It thus ranks with Brexit and Trump as one of the major triumphs of the burgeoning populist movement. When the U.S. is finally overwhelmed by illegal aliens Australia might be the logical place to escape. We ask (everyone is asking) how did the polls get it so wrong?
Our shower thoughts (Mike talks about Game of Thrones) yes! And our hidden gem this week is from folk legend Gordon Bok with Ann Muir: “Freedom on the Wallaby.” Enjoy!
