    Two losses for transatlantic twits: Brexit finally happens, impeachment collapses

    From the NY Post:
    How much punishment must liberal elites on both sides of the Atlantic endure before they learn not to try to undo the will of voters? That such trickery only invites fiercer and more decisive popular backlashes?

    This week, elites on both sides of the Atlantic had their knuckles rapped on *exactly these points — yet again. The United Kingdom finalized its divorce, once and for all, from the European Union — despite three years of underhanded *efforts from “Remoaners” determined to keep the marriage going.

    On our side of the pond, meanwhile, the dreary, *exhausting and pointless *impeachment drive well and truly petered out.

    Start with Britain and *Europe. The European Parliament on Wednesday ratified the withdrawal agreement struck by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Brussels mandarins. Brexit is happening, finally — Friday at midnight Belgian time, to be exact. . .
    “You’re very good at making people vote again,” Farage declared. “But what we’ve proved is that the British are too big to bully — thank goodness!”

    Indeed.

    If that pattern of elite misbehavior sounds familiar, it’s because Democrats and Never-Trump elites have for three years been up to the same thing here in the United States. They took President Trump’s victory as an insult to their professional-managerial honor — and they were determined to punish him and his voters.

    Instead of taking stock of their own policy failures, which had battered working-class Americans of all races, they resolved that Vladimir Putin had hypnotized half the country with his Twitter bots and planted a Manchurian Candidate at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    The Mueller report utterly debunked that theory. The special counsel concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

    For liberals, the sane thing to do at that point would have been to focus on booting Trump from office the normal way: by trying to beat him fair and square at the ballot box in 2020.

    But no: The trauma of 2016 was too wounding. Trump shouldn’t have become president, and so they would use impeachment to retcon history and erase the Bad *Orange Event. They came up with a cockamamie Ukraine impeachment theory based on third-hand information and no evidence of lawbreaking. And now that’s going exactly nowhere.

    Especially in an age of populism, the way back to the electorate’s heart lies through politics — not procedural tricks. The sooner the left learns this, the sooner its agony will end.
    A perfect Super Bowl weekend. A trifecta. Monday all of this crap will feel like a galaxy long ago and far away.
    "I was not elected to do small things or shy away from big problems.” —Donald Trump.

    "I think you called me a liar on national TV." —Elizabeth Warren. "Well, duh." —Bernie Sanders, shoulda said.

    "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." —Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    That's quite accurate, and it's why the left is going to lose again.
    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

    Time will tell.
