Anyone want to play poker?
I was going to write part two of why California is burning. But that takes a back seat to impeachment and the latest economic news.
So I'll shorten the "why California is burning" story. California is burning and blacked out because of insane liberal policies. First and foremost, as I pointed out in my last column, hundreds of billions of dollars have been wasted over the past 20 years paying for the costs of illegal immigration instead of upgrading and modernizing the California electric grid. The chickens have come home to roost.
The secondary cause for California's nightmare involves environmental policies that won't allow brush clearing or cutting down dead trees. The third cause is climate change mandates that force utility companies to waste billions of dollars annually on green energy.
So California consumers get the highest energy bills in the nation, the highest taxes in the nation and blackouts when the wind blows. Congratulations.
I could solve California's problems quickly. Clean the brush and redirect all those billions of dollars to upgrading and modernizing your electrical grid. Simple.
Now, on to the two most important stories in America: impeachment and the economy. Both play right into President Donald Trump's hands. Both will lead to a landslide victory for Trump's reelection.
First, impeachment. The game is on. The House voted along partisan lines to open the impeachment inquiry. And Democrats marched in lockstep, like sheep off a cliff.
A New York Times/Siena College battlegrounds poll released last week found that the majority of voters in every important swing state oppose impeachment -- including many independent voters.
No big deal, unless Democrats have any interest in winning Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina and Arizona.
I've seen a half-dozen other polls with the same results. This impeachment witch hunt is the biggest mistake ever made by Democrats.
