We still have two months to the elections, and I’ll stick by my prediction from six months ago that Republicans lose 20 seats, but if they do lose >24, impeachment is now guaranteed in the House. (Thank God for the Senate). The impeachment will work in Trump’s favor through 2020, and if he keeps us out of neo-con wars and the economy does not collapse, he’ll win re-election and the GOP will retake the House.
P.S. I’m also willing to predict Manafort’s sentence is commuted after the mid-terms
In just one week, Trump guaranteed the Democrats will retake the House of Representatives in 2018, which means it is all but certain Trump will be impeached in 2019.
How did this happen?
- Trump betrayed fiscal conservatives by passing a budget Hillary Clinton would have boasted about.
- Trump betrayed social conservatives by using taxpayer funds to pay for abortions at Planned Parenthood.
- Trump funded sanctuary cities and their racist, violent sedition.
- Trump funded foreign corporate welfare a la the Ex-Im Bank.
- Trump saddled taxpayers with billions to fund his wall, rather than getting the Mexicans to pay for it, as he had promised.
Plus Trump fired his already-bad National Security Adviser this week and replaced him with an even-worse pro-war neo-con.
The Democrats will win the House in November, but Republicans will hold the Senate and Trump is still likely to win reelection in 2020, so long as:
- He doesn’t start any wars
- Unemployment remains at record lows
- He appoints Scalia types to SCOTUS, and
- The stock market continues to grow at 12% a year or more.

I had an opportunity to interview Gerry this morning regarding the 2016 Presidential election tomorrow. He explains in detail what the Catholic Church teaches about:
- Our obligation to vote
- The ‘lesser of two evils’ argument

- How to commit a mortal sin in the voting booth
It’s an interesting topic. Let me know what you think!
