British Pollster's Post-Mortem for Labour Party's Absolute Drubbing in Elections Has Obvious Parallels to America's Spiraling Left Wing

From Iain Murray at Instapundit, Corbynization didn't work for Labour.

We'll have to see if it will work in America.

Spoiler Alert: It will not.

[T]he feeling that the Labour Party was no longer for [former Labour voters] went beyond Brexit and the Corbyn leadership. While it had once been true that "they knew us, because they were part of us," Labour today seemed to be mostly for students, the unemployed, and middle-class radicals. It seemed not to understand ordinary working people, to disdain what they considered mainstream views and to disapprove of success. The "pie in the sky" manifesto of 2019 completed the picture of a party that had separated itself from the reality of their lives.

As far as many of these former supporters were concerned, then, the Labour Party they rejected could not be trusted with the public finances, looked down on people who disagreed with it, was too left-wing, failed to understand or even listen to the people it was supposed to represent, was incompetent, appallingly divided, had no coherent priorities, did not understand aspiration or where prosperity comes from, disapproved of their values and treated them like fools.

Steven Greene at Instapundit has this related story, about a Monmouth University Poll showing Republican (and Independent) enthusiasm running higher than Democrat enthusiasm.

All partisan groups feel more enthusiastic than they did four years ago, including Republicans (47% more enthusiastic now versus 32% in 2016), Democrats (36% now versus 20% in 2016), and independents (34% now versus 15% in 2016).

Guys, I don't want to start counting chickens before they're hostaed, but I just checked: There are literally tons of chickens. There are so many beautiful chickens you'll get tired of all the chickens.

It's like we just had cold chicken Arctic front smash into a warm chicken front from the Caribbean and it produced a circular chicken storm which drowned the east coast and upper midwest under 14 - 20 inches of chickens.

Also, the chickens are all wearing MAGA hats and clucking "BUILD THE WALL."

Bank on it. 342 "electoral chickens," if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

I think New Hampshire "chickens" can be counted on to "flip" their feathers, as well as Colorado and Virginia "chickens" too.

ICYMI: I added an update to the last post. In case people missed it, I'm posting it again, below.

Update to Last Story: The fourth Rogue Angry Democrat Prosecutor has resigned and joined in the next politico-media operation to get yet another investigation going. This is Marando, the one involved in the fake prosecution of Democrat IT staffer/Pakistani criminal Imran Awan.

Charles Schumer immediately demanded a Special Counsel to investigate this noncrime.

Prosecutors have wide discretion in charging people and making sentencing recommendations -- it was this wide discretion that permitted IG Horowitz to not charge Mueller and the "Midyear Review" gang for doing everything possible to avoid charging Hillary Clinton or any of her cronies.

But now Schumer wants to claim there's an objective standard that must be adhered to, and it's a crime to charge anyone less than the maximum possible that a vindictive political-operative-masqerrading-as-a-prosecutor can invent.

If that's the case: McCabe, Brennan, Comey, and Clapper, as well as Hillary Clinton and her cronies, all need to be prosecuted immediately, and, furthermore, the people who refused to prosecute them must themselves be prosecuted.

Oh wait -- the "wide discretion" standard still covers those cases, right?

Does everyone realize that Trump has had a Special Counsel investigation on him for two and a half years, then just a month of relative peace before Schiff and Nadler started the Fake Impeachment investigation?

And now they're trying to get another Special Counsel investigation. If/when that is refused, they'll use that as a pretext to open another Fake Impeachment Inquiry.

They are literally attempting to make it so that Trump spends virtually every month of his first four year term -- and then every month of his second four year term -- under vaguely-defined free-ranging criminal investigation.

They are rewriting the Constitution so that President Trump -- and I guess any other future president who upsets the Deep State -- will have a Permanent Court of Inquisition on eternal fishing expeditions open at all times.

I hope Bill Barr reviews Janet Reno's explanation as to why she needed no Special Counsel to investigate allegations involving she herself.

She decided that she was impartial enough to decide that no further investigation into her decisions was warranted.

The mere assertions Clinton or Vice President Gore were "involved" in soliciting or receiving possibly improper donations, or contributors met with the president and benefited from government decisions, "fall far short of the sort of specific facts" necessary to trigger appointment of an independent counsel, Richard wrote.

"To the extent that there are allegations that may warrant criminal investigation at this time, they relate only to lower-ranking public officials, DNC employees and contributors," the letter said.

"Mere assertions." Remember those words.
