I’m glad the Democrats have a majority in Congress. Here’s why.

Six weeks ago I expressed the opinion that, regarding the White House, it was time to move on. True, I believed there were serious questions concerning the Biden/Harris victory. Yet it was clear that the swamp, with the enthusiastic collusion of the mainstream media, the academy and Hollywood, had won their four-year battle to undo the results of 2016. It was time to move on.

As of yesterday, the Democrats now have a majority in both the House and the Senate, making the results of this year’s elections – regardless of how they were achieved – a clean sweep. The US Government is in the hands of the Democrats. Period.

Unlike my liberal-progressive friends (mostly former, thanks to cancel culture) I am a great believer in majority rule. The winners should be allowed to do their thing without harassment, without false charges of foreign collusion, without trumped up impeachments, without having the New York Times and CNN abandoning their role as objective reporters in order to editorialize 24/7.

With a clean sweep of the Executive and Legislative branches, the Democrats will have no one but themselves to blame for their errors while being able to take full credit for their accomplishments. Plus, they will be sailing with an unprecedented tailwind courtesy of the Times, CNN, Barbra Streisand and every gender studies professor from Bronx Community College to Harvard.

If ever there was a litmus test for the capabilities of mediocrity this is it. If ever there was a stage on which the chorus line of progressivism could kick up its heels this is it.

Personally, I wonder how a lackluster has-been like Joe Biden can lead America; especially a lackluster has-been whose only genuine progressivism is a case of progressive dementia, and who walks under a shadow of self-dealing corruption.

And I am concerned about his imminent replacement; a woman of few accomplishments, a smirking grifter who purchased her place at the Democrat feeding by consorting with California’s most notorious ward heeler, Willy Brown. Yet she is now a literal heartbeat (or brainwave) away from the Oval Office, and we will likely be calling her Madam President in short order.

Having said this, we might be in for a genuine surprise. After all, who would have believed that Jared Kushner and a yeshiva bochur named Avi Berkowitz could deliver peace between Israel and the UAE, Morocco, Bahrain, and Sudan (with Saudi Arabia waiting in the wings)? And now, in the pathetic dwindling days of the Trump administration, they even achieved peace between Saudi and Qatar!

So, yes, maybe the Biden/Harris White House with a Democrat majority in Congress will achieve great things. Perhaps they will get Iran to permanently postpone the unveiling of its Allah bomb, and abandon its plan to eradicate Israel by 2040. Maybe they will get China to play fairly. Maybe they will get Germany to pay its fair share of NATO. Maybe they will create millions of new jobs by bringing industry back to America. Maybe they will get America’s public schools to generate a population that can read and write. Maybe they will prove that allowing millions of illegals to swarm America’s borders is a good thing. And maybe they won’t become the dog wagged by a tail called the “Squad”.

This is why a democracy has elections. And this is why being a sore loser is inappropriate. We have seen these past four years what happens to the United States when a losing party is fueled by sour grapes. This should never have happened, and it must not happen now.

Biden and Harris won the elections, perhaps not fair and square, but they won. In the House and Senate the Democrat sweep is unassailable.

Now lets see what they can do. In the meantime not a moment should be lost in preparing for 2024 hopefully with a Haley/Pompeo (or Pompeo/Haley) ticket.

And if the Democrats do a stellar job I, for one, will be pleasantly disappointed.
