Now, with an impeachment “resolution” passed in the House, the mainstream media is telling us that it’s on. It’s go time.
They want us to believe that a rapid escalation of political events is around every corner, taking up as much space in our heads as they possibly can. Remember, these infotainment entities cannot exist without our collective attention, and so they are always attempting to drill into your mind to unlock the secret to keeping you hooked.
In reality, this impeachment “inquiry” is going to be with us for some time, and Americans are slowly starting to become aware of this new way of life on Capitol Hill.
That’s why the favorability of impeachment itself isn’t making too many drastic moves on the chart.
More Americans approve of the impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump than disapprove of it, though only about a third say the inquiry should be a top priority for Congress, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
That solid, if measured, support serves as a warning sign for Trump’s White House and reelection campaign, which have insisted that pursuing impeachment will end up being a vulnerability for Democrats heading into 2020.
Should Congress Remove Biden from Office?
There’s more trouble too…
But the findings present some red flags for Democrats, too: More people say House members are motivated mainly by politics rather than by duty as they investigate the Republican president’s dealings with Ukraine and whether he abused his office or compromised national security when he tried to pressure the country to dig up dirt on a political rival.
We must remember that this has already been going on for some time, and the nation’s attention will soon be fully enveloped by the 2020 election.
This impeachment blockade will certainly dominate the media, however, acting like a 24/7 infomercial for the Trump campaign’s claims that they are being victimized by the “Deep State” – a belief that resonates loud and heavy in MAGA country.
