House Speaker Nancy Pelosi summed it all up when she told the Washington Post on Monday that pursuing the impeachment of Donald Trump is off the table, saying "he’s just not worth it."

You bet your backside he is worth it, and believe you me if Pelosi thought for just one moment that she could take Trump down she would be all over it like white on rice. A Trump carcass would be the ultimate trophy for the left and if Pelosi could deliver it to her sharply divided party, she would do it in a heartbeat.

Pelosi went on to tell the Post, “I’m not for impeachment. Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Translation: in spite of all of our kicking, screaming, resisting and investigating, we cannot find a thing on this guy. He's clean. He is the real McCoy. And don't forget that the media has spent tens of millions of dollars uncovering every stone Trump has stepped on in the last seventy years. NADA! As in not a damn thing!

Pelosi pivots to this concession at great personal and political risk. Keep in mind most of the 63 new House Democrats, including the three socialist stooges, have no allegiance to Pelosi and want Trump impeached. There are more Democrats these days who support Israel's right to exist than Pelosi's desire to remain Speaker. This could cost her her job.

So, with the specter of an impeachment circus off the table perhaps the resistance will accept that Donald Trump isn't going anywhere fast and maybe we can forge agreements on some real issues. It's time to put the resistance clothes back in the closet and get about the work of making America great again for all.
