Democrats 65

While I am in no way at all confident that the Republicans will be able to come away from this November’s election having been able to maintain their current majorities in Congress, I have, at least, become somewhat encouraged to hear that at least it may be turning into more of an uphill battle for the Democrats in their effort to assume control of one or both houses of Congress.  It was a Monmouth Poll released on Wednesday that shows the heavily hyped Democrat generic Congressional ballot advantage has virtually disappeared with the latest poll indicating Democrat chances for major Congressional midterm gains are now trending down.

The Monmouth University poll now shows Democrats with only a “negligible edge” over Republicans for November’s Congressional midterm elections.  The poll, conducted over three days almost entirely before President Donald Trump’s well-received State of the Union Address, shows 47 percent of respondents saying they would vote for a generic congressional Democrat compared to 45 percent for a generic Republican, well within the poll’s 3.5 percent margin of error.  This figure is a massive shift from earlier polls showing double-digit Democrat leads and fueling pundits’ talk of a “blue wave” that could sweep Republicans from power.

The same polling agency found a 15 point generic Democrat advantage using the same question only last month.  Patrick Murray, MUPI’s director, gave some context, noting generic polls’ volatility, but he confirmed that the figures, coupled with the same poll’s finding of growing support for the tax cut the GOP passed with no Democrat support, spells trouble for proponents of the “blue wave” theory.  He said, “The generic Congressional ballot is prone to bouncing around for a bit until the campaign really gets underway later this year. But Democrats who counted on riding public hostility toward the tax bill to retake the House may have to rethink that strategy.”

And the poll also showed a rather dramatic increase, from 24 to 37 percent, of respondents who think America is now heading in the “right direction.”  Approval of President Trump’s job performance also improved, matching Monmouth’s estimate from last August at 42 percent, while respondents who thought Trump needed to be impeached or compelled to leave office dropped three percent from July 2017 to 38 percent.  And it’s a series of dramatically narrowing numbers that have to do with the 2018 elections, over the last two weeks, that make up the clearest indication yet that the much talked about “blue wave” is not a foregone conclusion.

As I see it, the problem for the Democrats is that they have nothing to run on. Identity politics works well with the base, but it doesn’t translate to votes in the heartland.  Running on racism and all those phony subjects worked well in the past, but after Americans elected the first black” President, it’s become more of a hard sell.  ‘Make America Great Again’ and America First was refreshing to the American people, and after seeing a first year of Trump’s presidency in which people are getting pay raises, jobs, and 401k are getting fatter by the day, I doubt the Democrats will be able to beat that with the same cries of racism this and racism that.

And while I certainly don’t want to jinx us, I do think that with the right conservative candidates the Republicans still have a pretty good shot at actually gaining some seats.  Our paychecks and pension checks just got a little bigger and some of us got bonuses, raises, and other benefits on top of that.  Also, there will be more and better job opportunities opening up in the coming months for many of us.  Do we really want to go back to the days of a Democrat inspired anemic growth rate of our economy?   Do we really want to see more and more illegal aliens and refugees pouring into our country keeping wages down and endangering all of us?  No!

Furthermore, do we really want this country to be turned into another impoverished, crime-ridden, open-bordered, banana republic run into the ground by a bunch of corrupt, tyrannical, Marxist, globalist kooks who care far more about empowering themselves than they do about this country’s prosperity and/or sovereignty?  The choice is still in our hands, at least for a while.  Since the arrival of Barry ‘O’ onto the scene and with the sharp turn to the left made by the Democrat Party there has now come to be so much riding on each and every election that we can ill afford to allow the Democrats to ever regain any measureable amount of political power.

Given current demographic trends and plausible best case scenarios regarding legal and illegal immigration in the U.S., 30 years from now the U.S., as it exists to today, will cease to exist.  While some in Western Europe are farthest down the road to cultural suicide, the U.S. is the Western country farthest down the road to demographic suicide, whites already are less than 65% of the population.  Countries like Sweden, France, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium are breaking down sooner than the U.S. simply because their police and policies regarding ‘law and order’ are a joke and because they don’t have the First and Second Amendments.

But in the end, we all are on the same sinking ship and all President Trump is likely to be is little more than a speed bump on the way to what is essentially inevitable.  We will be getting our own speed bumps in future elections but the very urgent and VERY DRASTIC changes necessary to reverse current trends will most probably not be able to be made and by the time people finally wake up it will already be too late.  And even if we were all to wake up right now it may already be impossible to prevent what may already be a foregone conclusion.  I think of my daughter and the world that she may have to contend with, and I worry.

Steny Hoyer still claims the Democrats have a 90% chance of taking control of the House, but I recall polls that said Hitlery had a 93% chance of becoming president.  Thanks to the booming Trump economy, the soaring Trump stock market, the Trump tax cuts which the Democrats unanimously opposed and the Democrats foolishly choosing ILLEGAL aliens over American citizens, I’d like to think that 2018 may just be a pretty big year for Republicans with them adding several seats in both the House and the Senate.  But we’ll have to wait and see. There’s a lot of time, politically speaking, until the election.  And a lot of things can still happen.

But with that said, I’m told that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is in the red by roughly $4 Million.  They spent much of the coffers over the special elections and got mixed results.  Fundraising is way down and without it they can’t mobilize their base to go door to door and call centers. They have heavily relied on the state-controlled media to get their message out but trust in the media has fallen significantly and viewership is way down so they have a big problem.  With people going back to work and a generally optimistic outlook on the future all these things put together creates, at least on paper, what looks to be a perfect storm.

The Democrats have pit every possible group of people against another, told certain groups that they will never succeed because another group holds them down, and the only way to solve that is to ‘vote for them.’  Hell, they even managed to pit women against men.  They weaponize language, and tell anybody darker than printer paper that the evil right is anti-immigrant, when all we want is a fixed immigration system that brings people here who have something to offer. We are anti-illegal immigration, but somehow that always turns into ‘they hate all colored people.’  But then, no surprise there, that’s just how the Democrat Party operates these days.




Ok, so the million dollar question is: What’s going to determine how it is that people vote come this November 6?  Will it be something as basic as the continuing economic boom brought about by the policies of the current administration, and which, despite recent claims to the contrary, the last administration has had absolutely nothing to do with?  Or, will it have more to do with the allowing into this country of millions more illegal immigrants and then providing them with free healthcare and education while also providing all manner of ‘freebie’ to anyone who’s willing to vote Democrat?

I think we can all admit that the first year of the Trump administration was little more than a complete waste of time, and I place the majority of the blame for that not on the president but on those Republican members of Congress who once again seemed to have a difficult time remembering why it was that they were elected.  And it was beyond frustrating that they were so willing to let pass by that which was a ‘golden’ opportunity for making some very significant progress on a whole host of issues, many of which were the reason why Donald Trump was elected president.

The Democrats, on the other hand, have continued to put petty partisan politics above the needs of the American people as they have remained unable to move beyond the unexpected loss of their candidate, Hitlery.  Democrats have made it their purpose in life to stonewall, to obstruct and, yes even, to ‘resist’ on every level our duly elected president and the agenda that got him elected.  But their obstruction notwithstanding, progress has been made on moving forward with that agenda, despite the president receiving very little assistance from congressional Republicans.

Rarely have the Republicans ever been in the position of having complete control of Congress as well as control of the Oval Office, which makes the squandering of an entire year all the more infuriating.  And while that alone may be sufficient to cause some to throw in the towel when it comes to voting Republican this November, I think it goes without saying that should the Democrats gain control of Congress number one on their list will have little to do with the needs of the American people, the number one issue for them will be to impeach, one way or another, President Donald Trump.

So on which side of the election ballot will more Americans come down on?  I go back to my original question.  Does the impeaching of their president really matter more than a thriving economy to the majority of voters, regardless of political affiliation?  I wish I knew the answer to that question, but sadly I don’t.  And yet whenever I hear the Democrats speaking about their vision of America I find myself wondering why it is that there aren’t more people laughing in their face.  Because nearly everything that the Democrats support is, in one way or another, detrimental to this country.

And as we inch ever closer to the next election it’s a very rare occurrence when any of the talking heads out there, including many of those on Fox News, consider the election as being anything other than a cake walk for the Democrats.  And if that does prove to be the case, the Republicans will essentially have no one to blame but themselves.  And even the recent tax cuts may not be enough to protect them if they insist upon moving forward with anything that can even remotely be viewed as being amnesty for those who are in this country illegally.  That’s just a political fact of life.

Yet with all that said, it would still seem to me that all the Democrats really have as a campaign issue, if you can actually call it that, as we head into the next election, is that were it not somehow for the Russians, and old Vlad Putin, Hiterly Clinton would now be president and Donald J. Trump would not.  While this would likely prove to be sufficient motivation to garner the support of most in the Democrat Party, would it, I wonder, provide enough incentive for those outside the Democrat Party, perhaps those noncommittal Independents, to vote for Democrat candidates?

And I guess yet another question is; are there enough Americans who yearn for a return to the days of economic policies that succeeded in nothing more than to get our economy to grow at an anemic annual rate of less 2 percent?  And still another question would be, how many Republican voters might use their frustration over the lack of progress made over the past year to justify simply staying home on Election Day, therefore allowing the Democrats to simply waltz back into control of Congress.  There is so much riding on this next election, and there remains so much uncertainty.

Lastly, I guess I would only ask those on the right who may already be contemplating sitting this election out, for one reason or another, to please don’t.  Personally I am less than satisfied with what I’ve seen coming from congressional Republicans over the last year.  But as dissatisfied as I may be, the last thing I want to see happen, and I mean the VERY last thing, is to see Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer in control of Congress.  As far as I’m concerned that would be nothing less than a nightmare scenario.  That is something that we must, at any cost, keep from taking place.



When it comes to draining ‘The Swamp’ I think we’re all beginning to realize that it’s something that just may turn out to be more than just a one man job, even if that man is President Trump.  And since ‘The Swamp’ has been increasing in both size and toxicity for decades we must also realize that it’s not something we’re going to able to drain overnight.  But that doesn’t mean that we should allow ourselves to be dissuaded from doing so, nor should abandon the president if we perceive the process to be moving too slow.  Unfortunately, part of the problem, a big problem, is that it’s a rather sizable portion of ‘The Swamp’ that’s comprised of those folks whom you would at least like to think of as being the good guys.  While of them have may entered ‘The Swamp’ with the best of intentions, over time they became corrupted.

Now I’m sure many folks are as frustrated as I am regarding our Republican members of Congress and their continuing inability, or unwillingness, to get anything accomplished, especially, or so it would seem, if it has anything to do with the Trump agenda.  To the point where I keep hearing threats coming from all directions about how the party will go down to defeat in 2018.  Now make no mistake, I am in no way pleased about what little has been accomplished in the last six months, but at the same time I am certainly in no hurry to put Chuckie Schumer and Nancy Pelosi back in charge of Congress.  That would be the ultimate act of biting of one’s nose to spite one’s face.   And it would be one of the most irresponsible acts the American people, at least those serious about saving our country for our children, could EVER commit.

So how about we step back a bit, take a deep breath and reassess just what it might be that should be our best course of action going forward from this point and over the next 17 months.  First and foremost we’re morons if we do anything other than ignore everything that comes out of the mouth of any Democrat or ANYONE who’s part of the state-controlled media complex.  Because what it comes to anyone in either of these organizations it’s safe to say that if their lips are moving, they’re lying to us.  If there is anyone less deserving of being listened to than someone who proudly identifies themselves as being a Democrat, it’s someone who refers to themselves as a ‘journalist’.  Unfortunately when it comes to deciding what’s best regarding the truly important issues, we have now, apparently, been left to our own devices.

That said, we must never allow ourselves to be talked into voting for someone when we know in our heart it’s a mistake.  And there is also NEVER any reason for staying home on Election Day.  Now as I have said before, if our current batch of congressional Republicans are simply not up to the task of doing what even we the people are smart enough to know needs to be done, then our option, our ONLY option, is not to vote for Democrats but, instead, vote for Republicans whom we feel we can trust, at least until they give us a reason not to.  And if they too prove not to be up to the task as hand, then they too should be replaced.  We know from the get-go that we can never trust anyone in the Democrat Party, so why would we EVER want to elect any of them into a position of power?  That’s insane!

I think we can all agree that the latest attempt to repeal and replace of Obamacare failed because of one very simple fact.  We have far too many RINOs in our midst and far too few conservatives.  So can anyone please explain to me the rationale for wanting to replace these RINOs with Democrats?  Where’s the logic in putting the control of Congress back into the hands of those who created Obamacare in the first place?  Haven’t we learned anything from the last time we did that?  Now I’ve heard some make the claim that doing so would teach those Republicans a lesson, but while that may sound fine in theory, it really accomplishes nothing if our long term goal truly is to “Make America Great Again.”  Because choosing to put more Democrats in Congress serves as nothing more than a sizable speed bump in that process.

Reason must come to prevail here.  Look, we know who the RINOs are, they’ve become pretty easy to spot.  Unfortunately, those in the Senate who conned themselves into re-election in 2016, we’re stuck with.  So we’ll need to look very closely at those Senate Republicans up for re-election in 2018 and if deemed necessary search out the most suitable Republican replacements and force a primary election.  And remember, it’s every single House member, including every single RINO and every single Democrat, who will be up for re-election.  So in that respect in the House it should be a much easier task to remove a significant number of RINOs, chief among them being Paul Ryan.  But we should also take the opportunity to reduce, to the greatest extent possible, the number of Democrats.

There is no doubt that over the coming months there will be a growing number of voices from the left, including many coming from our state-controlled media, that will be doing their very best to convince us that the Republican Party no longer deserves the confidence of the American people when it comes to its ability, and willingness, to govern.  As for myself, I am not yet ready to condemn the entire Republican Party, instead I intend to focus my attention on those specific individuals who, while they may refer to themselves as being Republican have repeatedly proven such a claim is nothing more than a charade.  These people are frauds of the very worst kind, they willingly say one thing to American people and then something entirely different once they get behind closed doors with their Democrat friends.

With the election of Donald Trump as president we who love our country were provided with a much needed opportunity, one that just doesn’t come along all that often.  We were handed control of Congress and the White House.  An opportunity viewed by many on the left as being one that must be squashed at all costs and one that has effectively reduced those in the Democrat Party to little more than a bunch of unhinged lunatics.  Over the course of the last six months the Democrats have pulled out all the stops in their continuing effort to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.  As we have seen, and heard, there is absolutely nothing they will not do or say about the man, his family or anyone who is associated with him or his administration as they persist in continuing as the party of obstruction.

Meanwhile the many serious problems in desperate need of being addressed go ignored.  Whether we like it or not it would appear that much of the task for getting our country headed back in the right direction has now been left to us.  Now we can either act like spoiled children by perpetrating some level of retribution upon the party that we feel may have abandoned us, or we can be a bit more surgical in how we go about our only form of retaliation, the ballot box.  And again, what I mean by that is that we must focus our attention on those in Congress who have continually refused to keep the many promises they’ve made to us in the past and replace them not with Democrats, God forbid, but with the ‘most’ conservative Republicans that we can find and can then convince to run.  That should be our top priority!

And just one final note, to those who would wish to take all of their frustration and anger out on the Republican Party by either staying home on Election Day or, worse, voting for some Democrat, I would only ask if it is really a return to the Obummer years that you are seeking?   And how is it that that would in any way be a good thing for anyone or, for that matter, the country?  Wouldn’t it be far better to focus our attention on punishing the bad apples within the party by seeking out replacements and to then provide them with an opportunity to prove themselves in the effort to get our country back on track?  The dangers of putting the Democrats back in charge are simply too great and, suffice it to say, would be without a doubt the worst possible thing we could possibly do.
