The Beat Goes On

Reelection, the requirement for status retention, is the elixir that prompts a politician’s intended; therefore, a politician’s motivation, respective of party affiliation, as with any governing body, requires a resilient measure of askance. Nonetheless, instead of skepticism viewers trust their individual ideological inclinations; the receptor of information inclines to accept the persuader or persuasion separate of empirical evidence to the contrary.

Television is the virtual reality show equivalent of Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. The funding source of today’s televised Globe Theater, however, has nothing to do with a gate fee or ticket sales. And everything to do with the number of watching eyeballs. The 24/7 time frame coverage dictates a constancy of newsworthy events. The relentless competition encourages networks to free themselves from the hum-drum of traditional reporting to creating the news.

The attraction to the bright shining light of sensationalism has replaced the journalistic obligatory for truth-telling. Advertisers demand eyeballs the truth of the particular is an aside.

The story of the moment: Today’s televised melodrama produced and directed by Speaker Pelosi, with a highly vocal supporting cast such as Chairpersons Nadler, Neal, Cummings, and Waters has advantaged their media brethren indistinguishable political sympathies to advocate the Democratic Party’s political objectives.

Theatrically as if auditioning for a position as a CNN host or pundit, the Pelosi attention seeking supporting cast, scurrilously thrash President Trump, his family, and members of his administration. At the cost of thwarting or deferring the nation’s business, Democrats have scuttled the pretense of legislating in favor of investigations which include scripted rants, and purposeful histrionic theatrics. Antics and accusations aside, presidential office seekers passionately flutter the socialist-progressive ensign. They fly their ensign while striving to distinguish themselves from the two score or more competitors for the 2020 presidential election.

However, (from a conservative perspective) every offer of striving to differ is politically or economically more extreme and radical, then what might be labeled the elector’s ideological center.  I assume this movement to the political left of center is purposeful and establishes the talking points for the 2020 election.

The sharp dissimilarity of vision and political determinations in an election forces the voter to make a definitive choice and such is a requirement for 2020 presidential decision. Of course, if the Democrats fail, the investigations will continue.

No Need To Justify The Means

Management was pleased with the bashing Trump narrative. For the liberal progressive leaning distributors of the newsworthy, the storyline was fiscally lucrative, politically potent and it usefully injured President Trump’s election integrity and supported the Democratic Party’s resistance insistence. Pundits and program hosts, the show’s talent, were elevated to a celebrity lifestyle status, their comings and goings interest rivaled MGM’s golden age. Until one afternoon, Henny-penny, the advertising consultant of television media, while diligently forecasting next quarter’s revenue Attorney General Barr reported: No collusion, No obstruction.

Suddenly, as the result of Foxy-woxy’s Mueller report, parts of the sky fell and landed squarely on the integrity of past reporting. Henny-penny had a grand mal. Befuddlement ensued. “Now, what?” cries out the media consultant? “Trump is not a Russian agent. The consultant whines and moans, “neither he nor any member of his entourage colluded with Putin. ‘Hair on fire,’ Trump is not a traitor. There goes our golden goose of a narrative.”

Not to be deterred, Ivy schooled management contemplated, they tossed and turned, consulted and queried; finally, with the help of in-house novelists and practitioners of the black arts (attorneys), using the House of Representatives investigative powers they decided to attack the messenger.

Media management presented a newly designed supplemental to the original narrative — a very creative factoid. The factoid enunciated DOJ’s actions as extralegal prerogatives. Consequently, America’s democracy is now on the brink of disablement; therefore, the nation is in the midst of a constitutional crisis.

For public theatrics, a ruse to satisfy the Democratic Party’s leftist inclinations, the judiciary committee utilizing congressional oversight as the means demands that Attorney General Barr conveys to his committee the statutorily prohibited grand jury evidence.  This demand of the judiciary committee chairman is a meritless theatrical ruse. No judge in the land will order Barr to satisfy the subpoena and therefore, violate the law.

For the Democrats, the how-to and what form to facilitate Trump’s demise is elusive and runs in sync with not accepting the results of the 2016 election. The Donkey is frustrated and desperate. Democratic leadership cares little of the means as long as a result ends the Trump presidency. This open-ended amoral approach to solving their “Trump” problem is behaviorally dysfunctional. Nonetheless, the liberal progressives are intoxicated. Sober judgment suspended. Revenge and disrespect run concurrently with a blood lust for Trump and family that requires no particular cause for their display of hatred.

The election of 2020 is the end all until one day after the victor is declared. Today’s political contesting mimics the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 wherein the possible outlasted the arguments for the ideal. The nation is engaged in a hotly contested ideological divide; unless the Martians finally invade I do not see a resolution. At least, so far, there are no firefights in the streets.
