Problems Conservatives Must Consider

July 23, 2019

The Washington Post for July 22nd reports that “The White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reached a tentative two-year budget deal Monday that would raise spending limits by $320 billion and suspend the federal debt ceiling until after the 2020 presidential election.”

Today the British Conservative Party will select Boris Johnson as the United Kingdom’s new Prime Minister.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 23, Robert Mueller will undergo five hours of questioning and in 28 days, former South Carolina Governor, Mark Sanford, will decide whether to challenge President Trump for the GOP nomination for President in 2020.

This latter observation, and the report that President Trump has reached an agreement to raise spending limits by $320 billion, are keys to survival of American democracy. Entitlements and deficit spending have reached levels that cannot be sustained and a case must be made to reduce spending and make the tough decisions about Social Security, Medicare and prescription drug benefits.

That Donald Trump and Democrats in Congress are the problem, not the solution, is a grim reality that, apparently, conservative members of Congress are unable to comprehend. In previous Congresses, raising the debt limit threatened the leadership of Speaker of the House, John Boehner. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows made that “the” issue to fight for.

This week, however, not a word?

Boris Johnson will win today because he offers the UK leadership not “managerial” decision-making. And Robert Mueller is likely to explain that President Trump committed obstruction of justice.

Boris Johnson is likely to reverse current British foreign policy not to join the United States in further restricting actions of the Islamic terrorists who control Iran. That will lead to military action against that regime or capitulation by Iran to demands of the U.S., Germany, France and the UK.

Mueller’s testimony may embolden Democrats to seek Impeachment of President Trump and the President will certainly have a primary challenger who calls him to account for his fiscal policies.
