OBAMA, WHY DON’T YOU TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW…

053

Now you would think that if there is one thing that the American people would have learned from their decision to elect Barack Hussein Obama, not once but twice, as their 44th president, it would be that they should never vote for someone whose background the media has worked so very hard to keep hidden from them out of fear that may cause them not to vote for that candidate.  The reason being, nothing good will come of it.  And for proof that we need look back no further than the elections of 2008 and 2012.  After all, what exactly did our state-controlled media do in an effort to make sure that the voting public was aware of who this man, Obama, really was.  So  I thought it a bit ironic that after a speech he gave, just yesteday, in Milan, Italy, that during a question-and-answer session after the speech, Barry seemed to toss a bit if a dig at people who didn’t show up to the polls last November.

And it was without mentioning President Trump by name that Barry said, “You get the politicians you deserve.”  And he added, “And if you don’t vote and you don’t participate and you don’t pay attention, then you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interests.”  The comments came during a discussion about leadership, a trait which Barry has repeatedly demonstrated that he most definitely does not possess.  And yet, Barry said, “The mark of a good leader is somebody who is able to empower other people.”  He then went on to say, “So often we think of leadership as somebody at the top who is ordering other people around … but it turns out, for me at least, what made me understand leadership was when I could see somebody who thought they didn’t have a voice, thought they didn’t have influence or didn’t have power, and teach them how to speak up on the things that were affecting their lives.”

Barry said, “Politicians can help guide policy.”  And he then went on to say, “But change is going to come from what people do every day.”  He said, “When I was president, wherever I would go, I would meet with young people.”  And he went on to say, “And it would always give me energy and inspiration to see how much talent and sophistication and optimism and idealism existed among young people.”  Barry continued, saying, “The problem is so often young people’s voices aren’t heard, and when they want to get involved on issues, they don’t know how and they don’t have the tools.”  So it is then that the apparent goal of the forthcoming Barry “Almighty” Presidential Center is “to provide them the tools, the training, the networks, the relationships, the funding, so that they can be even more effective. That’s probably what I’m going to be spending most of the next 10 years on.”

You would think that it would be pretty difficult, for all but the most devoted of his followers, to deny that over the course of his entire time in office Barry proved himself to be anything other than a complete disgrace, as well as being not much of an actual leader.  I can’t help but wonder what other freedom loving people must have thought of us for electing this guy?  I’m sure they must have thought that we had lost of collective mind.  And then when we chose to re-elected him, I’m sure they thought we had gone completely insane.  And still, to this day, the majority of Americans don’t agree with his policies.  So he was actually telling us the truth when he said you get what you deserve by not voting because when the working men and women in America didn’t vote we got the most divisive, race baiting President in US history. It’s sad at how he is now profiting ‘bigly’ by spreading his divisive rhetoric.

The truth is that Barry would have lost the first time if he had been truthful about who, and what, he “really believed.”  But for those of us who were really listening, we knew what Barry really believed.  There just wasn’t enough of us, so what we ended up with was a narcissist for eight years who seemed quite determined in his effort to destroy our country.  You end up with whoever you vote, or don’t vote, for.  Because in 2008 how many folks chose to stay home instead of voting for McCain, and how many did the same in 2012 because they couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Romney?  Therefore what we ended up with was a guy who couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with the directions on the heel.  So in that way Barry is right because in both instances we got what we deserved.  And has anyone else ever noticed that the word ‘incompetent’ and Barack Obama both have the same number of letters?  Just saying.

But what the Hell did I do to deserve Barry for eight years!  I went out and I voted for both McCain and Romney.  And still I ended up with a narcissistic, self-centered, self-serving hypocrite.  And I voted for Trump because I want to see a roll-back of big government, and less coddling of those unwilling to work, or to think for themselves. And I’m in favor of reviving that antiquated notion of following the law, i.e., sanctuary cities are nonsense, and if you came to this country illegally, you don’t deserve to be here ahead of those who followed the rules and paid their fees.  And did any of us get what we deserved when we elected Barry?  Did we deserve $20 Trillion in debt?  Did we deserve healthcare that we can’t afford to use?  Did we deserve more racial division?  Did we deserve to have our jobs go overseas?  We also don’t deserve now to be scolded by you because we voted for change, Barry.

Barry is the reason Trump was elected, because had there been no Barry, I firmly believe there would have been no President Trump.  And Trump’s success is a direct result of Barry and his radically left-wing policies. It remains to be seen what kind of positive impact the new president can have, in spite of the Democrats, but working to unravel much of the social engineering by his predecessor would be a great start.  But we now know that there were many last ditch efforts by Barry which were knee jerk responses to Hitlery’s losing the election.  And we now know that much of what Barry did as he headed toward the exit was designed to keep Trump busy early on so he would be unsuccessful. Like many on his team, Barry underestimated the pace the new president has kept.  With the election of President Trump we have moved beyond the worst president in American history.  And now we need put him further behind us!

NANCY PELOSI CLAIMS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS 100 PERCENT UNIFIED…REALLY???

773

When looking from the outside in it’s easy to make the assumption that the Republican Party, at least within the confines of the Washington beltway, is far from having its act together.  As evidenced by its inability to make good on its promise to repeal and replace Obamacare and the passage of yet another wasteful spending bill that accomplishes nothing more than to grow the government.  Our problem, which is very much in need of being corrected come the 2018 election, is the fact that currently it’s only roughly 60 out of the 238 Republicans in the House that can in any way be considered as conservative.  And things are even worse over in the Senate.  But to make the claim that the Democrat Party is anything other than a party headed in multiple directions at the same time takes naïveté to a whole new level.

And it is none other than Nancy Pelosi, who I can only assume must be suffering from what can only be described as a rather severe case denial, who refuses to acknowledge just how severely fractured her Democrat Party truly is.  And it was when she was recently asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl to grade the Democrats during the first 100 days of President Donald Trump’s administration, Pelosi responded, “In terms of unity, 100 percent unified.”  To which Karl shot back asking her, “Two-thirds of the American people say the Democratic Party is out of touch … Isn’t the Democratic Party a bit of a mess right now?”  Pelosi responded, “No, it isn’t.”  However, there are those within her party, and even in the left leaning state-controlled media, willing to point out just how divided the Democrats are.

For instance, it was just last month recently appointed Democratic National Committee Vice Chairman Keith Ellison took it upon himself to blame former president Obummer for his party’s 2016 losses and not being a “better party leader.”  And according to The Hill, while speaking at an event at the University of Minnesota, Ellison said, “Look I’m a great fan of President Obama … But Barack Obama could have been a better party leader, and I think the fact that he wasn’t put his legacy in jeopardy.”  The devastation that took place in the Democrat Party across all levels of government is really nothing short of staggering.  I won’t bore anyone by repeating the numbers, but the Democrat Party is now a shell of its former self and it’s all because of the man who so many had once viewed as being the second coming.

And then we have she who is the left’s progressive darling, Elizabeth Warren, who has also criticized Obummer’s “giant bling spots” in his communication with “most Americans.”  And it was ‘Crazy Old’ Liz who, in a recent interview, said, “I think President Obama, like many others in both parties, talk about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but increasingly have giant blind spots.”  And she went on to say, “That GDP, unemployment, no longer reflect the lived experiences of most Americans.”  Liz also said she was “troubled” that Obummer received $400,000 to address a Wall Street conference on health care this fall.  This all coming from someone who has on any number of occasions revealed herself to be little more than a complete fraud.  A trait that seems to bother those in her home state very little.

And there’s the geriatric socialist, Bernie Sanders, who represents a prime example of the division between the Democrat Party’s Establishment and progressive wings.  He too has blasted Obummer about his rather “distasteful” Wall Street speech.  Speaking with the Communist News Network (CNN) just last month, Sanders said Obummer’s decision to take that opportunity was “not a good idea,” and that he was “sorry President Obama made that choice … I just think it is distasteful — not a good idea that he did that.”  Weren’t these boobs paying the least amount of attention over the course of the last eight years, or were they just turning a blind eye because at least there was a Democrat in the White House.  Obummer is simply proving himself to be the kind of guy that most of us on the right always knew him to be.

However, the party’s weakness becomes most evident when examining the tension that now seems to exist between DNC Chairman Tom Perez and Sanders.  Just this week, the DNC snubbed Sanders and his supporters, arguing that the party did not owe them a “fair” 2016 primary process. Can you imagine?  The Washington Examiner reported, “DNC lawyers argue that they don’t owe anyone a fair process, and that the rules in their charter are basically not binding in court.  In fact, if they wanted, DNC attorney Bruce Spiva argued, they could choose their nominee in a smoke-filled back room and it still wouldn’t be legally actionable.”  So why is it that any reasonably intelligent individual chooses to tolerate such arrogance?  Or are they simply willing to overlook such behavior for what has become a growing list of ‘freebies’?

DNC Chair Tom Perez has also contributed to the party’s divisiveness by making pro-life Democrats feel unwelcome in the party.  In a statement last month, Perez said, “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” adding that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should” share the “Democratic Party’s position on women’s fundamental rights.”  In response, the Nebraska Democrat Party’s Chair Jane Kleeb called Perez’s comments “deplorable.”  According to The Atlantic, Kleeb said, “Tom Perez put every Democrat who is leading our party at the nationwide and statewide level in a very difficult position” by issuing a statement “that is now being interpreted as him saying he does not accept pro-life Democrats in the party.”

As for Pelosi, members of her own party have called her “out of touch” with her Democrat base.  And in a 2016 interview with CBS News’ Face the Nation, Pelosi said, “I don’t think people want a new direction.”  And just this past November Rep. Cedric Richmond criticized Pelosi, suggesting her proposals to empower junior members of Congress, by making certain positions available only to lawmakers who have served fewer than three or four terms, while she and Reps. Jim Clyburn and Steny Hoyer remain in their current posts, could decrease the Congressional Black Caucus’s power while increasing her own.  Richmond wrote, “The reality is that, from the perspective of the CBC, some changes may be beneficial while others may have severe unintended consequences that could diminish our power as a caucus within the Democratic Caucus.”

I think we can all agree that if there is one thing on which the Democrat Party stands united, it would the deep level of hatred that they have for America.  A hatred, I dare say, that is possessed by nearly every single individual who identifies as a Democrat.  There is that old adage, which I’m sure most as familiar with, which says, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”  And I only bring it up in an effort to point out how there are essentially eight levels of control which must first be successfully obtained before one is able to create a Socialist/Communist state.  And what I find to be rather striking, and more than a little frightening, is that there is a very clear similarity that exists between these eight levels of control and what has been consistently laid out in the platform of the Democrat Party, and for decades.

And if you don’t believe me, then compare for yourself:

  1. Healthcare: “Control healthcare and you control the people.”
  2. Poverty: “Increase the poverty level as high as possible.” Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
  3. Debt: “Increase the National Debt to an unsustainable level.” That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
  4. Class warfare: “Divide the people into the wealthy against the poor. Racially divide.” This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with full support of the voting poor.
  5. Welfare: “Take control of every aspect of their lives” (Food, livestock, housing and income).
  6. Education: “Take control of what people read and listen to (news media), along with control of what children learn in school.”
  7. Religion: “Remove faith in God from the government and school.”
  8. Gun Control: “Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government.” That way you are able to create a police state – total local control.

Pelosi is too narcissistic, senile or perhaps demented to look around and see that she has become irrelevant.  Perez is so far to the left he can’t stand up straight.  And then there’s Ellison, a known Moslem and a vocal supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood.  Sanders is 100% a Socialist as is Warren.  The Marxist, Socialist/Progressive Democrat Party wants nothing more than to destroy the Union.  Democrats and their judges choose which parts of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights they will obey.  Obummer the community agitator operated the very same way.  Their goal remains to get the majority of American citizens completely dependent on government. Leading to an Oligarchy destroying the sovereignty of American citizens.  And it’s RINOs like Paul Ryan who are in lockstep with these very same vile Democrats.

Now where I do agree with Pelosi is when it comes to how the Democrats, unlike Republicans, ALWAYS stick together, no matter what. The Republicans rarely work together and are just as likely to work with Democrats as they are with anyone in their own party.  Proof of that is seen in the recent spending bill just passed in the House where more Democrats voted in favor of it than did Republicans.  And it’s the Republicans who are in control of House.  Which provided us with yet another perfect example of how the Republicans were elected based almost solely on their false promises, and then almost immediately flip over to become Democrats once safely in office.  Come 2018 conservatives must band together and get rid of many of these RINOs as possible and replace them with likeminded leaders.

And where Democrats are like pit bulls, who hang together and hang onto their focus, Republicans tend to be more like squirrels trying to decide whether or not to run across the road.  And it’s even while in the minority that the Democrats have now chalked up three substantial victories: the blocking of two attempts at an immigration freeze in court and now this budget ‘deal’.  Make no mistake, they are starting to rally. Vetoing the bill and raking up the wrongly adjudicated decision in the Supreme Court, AND looking for some body shots to Democrats is now in order.  Sadly it looks to me as if the president is allowing the Democrats to appear stronger than they are, hopefully there will come a point where they will get a little overconfident reach for something he chooses not to allow them and WACK!  We can only hope.

HITLERY FINALLY TAKES THE BLAME, SORT OF…

Hitlery 7

For the longest time Hitlery simply could not bring herself to stop blaming everyone but herself for the fact that she had her rather sizable behind handed to her by Donald Trump.  Because, you see, there was simply no way that she could be to blame for her rather stunning defeat.  But at long last it would at least appear that she may now have finally come to grips with the fact that she, herself, is responsible for losing yet again in her second attempt to become the first female president of the United States.  Her admission, if you can call it that, came when she announced this past Tuesday, at something called a ‘Women For Women International’ event, that she now takes full responsibility for losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, well sort of.

It’s ‘sort of’ because Hitlery is still out there trying her best to spin her loss in the 2016 presidential election.  And it was in speaking at this ‘Women for Women International’ event, on Tuesday of this week, that while Hitlery claimed to take “personal responsibility” for losing to Trump, it was almost in the same breath that she then immediately proceeded to lay that responsibility at the feet of James Comey and “Russian WikiLeaks.”  And then it was in referencing her forthcoming book about the campaign that she said, “I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate. I was the person who was on the ballot and I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had. Again I will write all this out for you.”  I can hardly wait.

And the old girl went on to say, “But I will say this: I’ve been in a lot of campaigns and I’m very proud of the campaign we ran and I’m very proud of the staff and the volunteers and the people who were out there day after day.”  She said, “And it wasn’t a perfect campaign. There is no such thing. But I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russia WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off.”  She said, “We overcame a lot in the campaign, we overcame a barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, but as Nate Silver…has concluded, if the election had been on October 27 I would be your president. But it wasn’t.”  No it wasn’t, thank God!

Hitlery said, “Did I make mistakes? Oh my gosh yes.”  She said, “But the reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days.”  Yes, for sure, Hitlery made mistakes, plenty of them.  First and foremost it was her roughly 40 years of corruption.  I would say that that may have played at least some role in her loss.  Or maybe it was all those unanswered questions surrounding the death of four Americans, including our ambassador, in Benghazi.  Or how about never saying “I’m sorry” for accepting the answers to the questions during the primary debates?  She’s never once spoken to that little slip in moral judgement!  So how is it that she can still make the claim that she was on her way to winning?  Really?  How delusional can one person be?

And I’m also guessing that at least in her mind her loss had absolutely NOTHING to do with her e-mail scandal, or her constant lying about her e-mail scandal, or her rather deep ties to Wall Street which she preferred keeping secret, or her calling half of America “deplorables,” or the countless other scandals that she was caught up in.  Oh, and then there’s the whole being married-to-‘Slick Willy’-Clinton thing.  But go ahead Hitlery, believe whatever you want.  But on her way to winning?  At what stage of denial must one be at in order to come to the conclusion that, after factoring in all of the baggage associated with her, the fact that she lost the election has nothing whatsoever to do with her, and came about because of outside forces working against her?

In truth, Hitlery did little more than ‘stumble’ through the entire campaign!  And it didn’t help her cause that she ran one of the worst campaigns in recent memory.  She somehow felt that could simply ignore some very key states in order to spend time hobnobbing with the rich and famous in order to garner some cash and then do a sparsely attended “rally” with a handpicked crowd somewhere, only to then take off a long weekend off.  Meanwhile, Trump was out drawing SRO crowds all across the country, often several times a day, and day after day.  He campaigned, he worked for it, while she sat around waiting for the balloons to drop.  She seriously thought she had it wrapped up and could coast!  But a funny thing happened on the way to the election, she coasted right to defeat.

So anyway, Hitlery was also asked what she might have going on next?  Well, she said, “I’m now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”  Really?   What is it, I wonder, that she’s resisting?  Back to being an “activist citizen?”  When was it that she hasn’t been some sort of activist?  Here is an individual responsible for dragging her party down almost singlehandedly in the last election cycle.  Now, or so it would appear, she is seeking to be part of the cool kid’s crowd again?  I’m thinking that cool kids might want to think long and hard about whether she would be a help or a hindrance to their cause.  And I have to wonder if any of them are smart enough to see that she only seeks to use them for her own rather perverse reasons?

And you know, this is precisely what’s wrong with Hitlery, and what her husband understood: you can’t hijack a popular movement that you’ve had nothing to do with.  Bernie Sanders? Maybe. Hitlery? No way.  And who knows, perhaps Hitlery does still have 2020 ambitions. Those rumors are still floating out there, and right now, the three leading 2020 candidates for the Democrats are around her age: Elizabeth Warren (67), Joe Biden (74) and Bernie Sanders (75).  She’s a youthful 69. What’s to stop her from running again?  But what’s it say about a party that can only put forward for consideration a group of senior citizens?  And therein lies the problem for the Democrats.  All of their current first stringers are nothing but a bunch old fogeys ready to be sent off to the home.

Now whether or not Hillary plans to run in 2020, it is important for the Clintons to at least give the impression that they still hold or will again hold some manner of political power.  Because the minute that they signal that they are no longer relevant, every Clinton insider anywhere on the planet is going to start publishing books and giving interviews without fear of reprisal.  This is why they have pushed Chelsea into the spotlight – to make people think twice about dropping a dime on America’s First Family of Political Corruption.  Republicans should be excited to see Hitlery back in play, just as they should be excited that Obama is making a comeback.  Obummer and Hitlery helped raze a generation of Democrats and now they’re out to salt the earth.

And even after factoring in all of the many flaws that Hitlery possesses, there is also the issue of the progressive Democrat agenda that she enthusiastically endorses and that many Americans wanted to see, if not stopped, at least slowed to the greatest extent possible.  And it is that agenda which can be said to include, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. Amnesty for millions of illegals, millions more un-vetted Muslims, open borders, and more H-1B visas for cheap labor from 3rd world nations allowing 1 percenters to replace Americans who are forced to train them before being laid off.
  2. Higher taxes/more cuts to taxpayer funded benefits/services for Americans to pay for the support of the illegals in their states.
  3. Millions/Billions in federal tax dollars to protect illegal alien criminals in sanctuary cities/states regardless of the crimes they commit, including the rape/murder of women and children because Democrats now realize that their only remaining path to power is through the destruction of our sovereignty and the legalization of millions of illegals and so called “refugees”.
  4. The total destruction of organized religion/forced acceptance of their immoral ideological agenda including changes in laws to allow men in women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, locker rooms, showers, etc. regardless of the threat they pose to women/children. Forcing Americans to accept gay marriage as natural/normal and the destruction of the lives/livelihoods of those who believe faith/religion to be sacrosanct thus refusing to participate in said gay marriages. Simple tolerance/acceptance is not enough thus they purposely misconstrue “avoidance” with “discrimination” because only under the guise of discrimination can they destroy the lives of others via lawsuits and enrich themselves in the process.
  5. Disarming Americans/leaving them defenseless against the very criminals/terrorists they are so determined to bring into America. Democrats with their open border policies have flooded the country with dangerous criminals/drugs as well as Moslems from terrorist nations who refuse to assimilate and look to conquer/destroy peaceful nations with the terror/war they bring. Their stated goal is to force their culture, religion, and laws on other nations and it matters now how many they must kill in order to do so.  If you doubt that just take a look at what is happening in Europe.  And how many Christians have been slaughtered across the globe, denied entry to the U.S. while Obummer allowed Moslems to flood in to the U.S..
  6. Spending the country into oblivion/bankruptcy to buy votes at the expense of hardworking taxpayers to provide for the protection, transportation, and care of millions who entered the U.S. illegally and “refugees”, benefits to millions of lazy, able bodied, citizens who refuse to work, etc. while ignoring the needs of our own Vets, elderly, disabled/handicapped, and poor. Remember, it was Obummer who removed all work requirements for those on welfare/food stamps.

But look, at the end of the day whether it was because of numerous self-inflicted wounds or because she was peddling a Democrat agenda that is still opposed by a great many Americans, Hitlery lost the election.  But sadly she still doesn’t appear ready to go away any time soon.  Rumor has it that she will soon be starting up a new political action committee and will even resume giving paid speeches.  According to Axios’ Mike Allen, Hitlery’s PAC will work as a “quiet catalyst” to help grassroots political organizations, obviously of the leftwing variety.  She also plans to direct funds to congressional candidates in 2018.  But according to Allen’s sources the PAC is not a vehicle for a 2020 presidential bid.  But who really knows what this poor excuse of a former public servant is up to?

THE DEMOCRATS STRUGGLE WITH A WEAK BENCH AND A WEAKER AGENDA…

758

After recently coming up short in the recently held special election in Kansas’ 4th congressional district, Democrats have now pinned their hopes on Georgia’s 6th congressional district when it comes to their next attempt to flip a U.S. House seat from Red to Blue, and in the process declare that victory as being a referendum on the policies of President Trump.  And that opportunity will come early next week.  But a new poll may dampen those high expectations just a bit.  Democrats have already given $8 million to help their candidate, Josh Ossoff, prevail among the 18 candidates running in the district primary.  The district was previously represented by Republican Tom Price who has since been tapped by President Trump to become his Secretary of Health and Human Services.

And although Trump barely carried the Georgia district in 2016, a new poll released by Decision Desk HQ and RRHElections.com shows that Mr. Ossoff is heading toward a rather difficult runoff with one of the five Republicans in the primary.  Ossoff can only avoid a runoff if he gets at least 50 percent of the vote in the district, but the poll now shows Ossoff with just 39 percent.  Another Democrat in the race takes 4 percent, pushing total Democrat support to 43 percent.  The smorgasbord of Republicans in the primary have a combined total of 51 percent, with Karen Handel at 15 percent.  So this new polling, if in any way accurate, would seem to indicate that the Democrats will have no better luck in Georgia than they had in Kansas with Ossoff likely getting beaten like a rented mule.

It’s also this same poll that shows that with more than 39,000 ballots cast overall as of Wednesday, Democrats currently lead Republicans in early voting.  And as many as 95,000 to 130,000 voters may ultimately turn out to vote by Tuesday.  Decision Desk HQ notes, “Republicans remain divided on who to back, and this is their Party’s blessing and curse going into Election Day.  Ossoff is barely clearing a third of the remaining vote with much of the rest divided in a battle royal between four Republican hopefuls.”  The site goes on to add, “If these voters stay engaged and do eventually show up, they’ll prevent Ossoff from clearing 50% Tuesday. If they aren’t as eager, things get hairy and Ossoff’s first round win odds improve greatly.”  So Democrats, I’m sure, are holding their collective breath.

And it’s both this upcoming election and the previous one in Kansas, that should make very clear just how shallow of a bench the Democrats truly have, all thanks to Obummer, because this guy Ossoff is nothing more than a fraud and on a pretty significant number of levels.  First of all he’s claimed to be a small business owner, which he is not.  And he’s also claimed to have held high security clearances, but this is also apparently not the case.  So I guess you could say that he’s the perfect individual to be picked as a candidate for the Democrat Party.  So I can’t help but wonder if this is truly the caliber of individual that the Democrats are looking for, and if they feel that fielding such candidates provides to them their best opportunity for winning enough seat to once again become the majority party.

But I do have some questions for Democrats.  Such as, if the Democrats truly are the party of the poor, the middle class, and of America’s “working families” then why is it that they continue to demand amnesty and citizenship for millions of illegal aliens?  And too, why is it that they seek to increase the number of immigrants from third world countries including those from the most dangerous area on the planet including countries that both sponsor and support terrorism as evidenced by the attacks in Germany, Italy, Greece, France, Great Britain, Sweden, etc.?  And why do they continue to support open borders thus simultaneously serving as the instrument of destruction of the very poor, the middle class and the same “working families” that they claim to represent and to champion?

And I guess what I’m most curious how it is with such an agenda that Democrats plan to convince enough voters to go off to the polls and to vote for them, and in so doing agree with providing what will be the billions of dollars which will be required to cover the costs of that agenda.  The most egregious lie I think that I have heard in my lifetime came from Democrats when they declare that they are the party that is the protector of the poor, the middle class as well as the workers and minorities.  The truth is that when it comes to Democrats their only remaining path to power is through the destruction of our sovereignty via the legalization of millions of illegals and so called “refugees” regardless of the danger and financial costs to our own citizens.  I simply do not see that as being a winning strategy.

But in spite of all that has been said about the issues now confronting the Democrat Party, and there are many, there is also mounting pressure on the Republican Party to produce.  If they continue to squabble amongst themselves and remain unwilling, and unable, to move forward on President Trump’s agenda of repealing and replacing Obamacare as well as, tax and immigration reform, including the building of ‘The Wall’, then make no mistake, come 2018 I have no doubt that we will witness a great resurgence in the Democrat Party’s ability to regain positions of power, at least in Washington.  So our Republican leadership must recommit themselves to advancing the agenda of our still new president just as our still new president must remain committed to keeping his campaign promises.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY, HARBINGER OF THINGS TO COME, OR MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING???

757

There seems to be some level of disagreement out there in the outer fringes of leftwing lunacy when it comes to the recent election that took place in Kansas’ 4th congressional district.  Because of the closeness of the outcome and the fact that the district has been reliably Republican for 20 years, there are some who describe it as being an opportunity lost while others describe it as a harbinger of things to come and still others say it’s much ado about nothing.  After a longshot Democrat candidate came within seven points of winning, progressive strategists have since come out to blame the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for not putting enough money and resources into the contest, and national operatives more broadly for paying too little attention to it.

And despite the fact that Republican Ron Estes won the Kansas special election Tuesday evening, prominent news outlets were quick to interpret the win as a positive sign for Democrats.  NPR asserted the race was in a very strong Republican district and should have been won easily.  The reason the race was close, NPR suggests, is because the race was a referendum on Trump, and not a referendum on Hitlery, like the district voted in 2016.  The outlet blared the headline: “A Special Election In Kansas Could Signal ‘Big League’ Problems For GOP, Trump.”  Politico noted that the Democrat party didn’t shell out any cash in the race, and compared that to the fact that President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Speaker Ryan all held fundraisers and campaigned on behalf of Estes.

Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer noted in ‘Playbook’ that Trump carried the district with a 27 percent lead over Hitlery, implying the win should have been much bigger, so it was a good sign for Democrats.  They wrote, “The DCCC did not spend a dime in this race. Again: Trump won this district by 27 points.”  CNN called the race a “surprisingly strong challenge” to Republicans, asserting that the GOP closely avoided a loss.  Some unnamed GOP staffer told CNN, “This should be a wake-up call to the Administration and the Republican Congress.”  And then added, “The Democratic base is fully mobilized and unlikely to be defused. We will have to beat them. That will take motivating our base. So far we have not.”   CNN ran the ominous headline: “Republicans avert disaster in Kansas but 2018 trouble looms.”

And it was Jim Dean, president of something called ‘Democracy for America’, a progressive advocacy group, who said, “To the Washington Democratic insiders who wrote this race off before it began, it’s time to wake up and realize that the grassroots expects this resistance effort to be waged unflinchingly in every single county and every single state across the country.”   And then we have Bernie Sanders’ former presidential campaign team, now running a group called Our Revolution, that piled on saying, “The Democratic Party can no longer ignore districts that they consider ‘safe’ for Republicans.”  Even the Democrat candidate, James Thompson, himself said that the party needs to become more active everywhere – even in conservative districts and states.

Thompson’s ‘strength’ heading into the final days of the Kansas special election is said to have stunned Republicans forcing national GOP officials to make a major, last-minute effort to help their nominee.  Democrats in Washington flatly reject the charge that they did anything wrong in Kansas, arguing that involvement from the national party would have been counterproductive and an unwise use of scarce resources.  For many reasons, moving the needle in a district this conservative is difficult for a group like the DCCC.  But the split over Kansas is emblematic of the rift growing wider between the activists and the operative class as two wings of the Democrat Party struggle to find common ground not only on policy but on the strategy and tactics that might lead them back to power.

Although the race was closer than former Rep. Mike Pompeo’s win in 2016, politically speaking it was hardly close.  Estes won with 52.5 percent of the vote, and Democrat candidate James Thompson earned 45.7 percent of the vote.  That’s substantially lower than Pompeo’s 60.7 percent of the vote in 2016, but the lower number could be a result of any number of factors.  For starters, 275,251 people voted in the 2016 election, indicating that the presidential race brought a lot of people to the polls, and only 120,897 people voted in the special election.  Estes also didn’t have anywhere near the high name recognition enjoyed by the nationally-known Pompeo, who had held the seat since 2011.  So I think we can all agree that come liberals are making some fairly broad assumptions here.

Meanwhile, Democrat allies of the DCCC have argued that running TV ads in the Kansas district would likely have done more harm than good because the Republicans could have then used them to argue that Thompson was nothing more than a tool of the national party – a potent criticism in such a conservative area.  They also say that calls for the party to help with mail or field staff would have taken months of preparation for a race nobody knew would be competitive until just last week.  Apparently the DCCC did not even conduct a poll of the race until just days before the election.  Ian Russell, who served as DCCC’s political director last year, said, “Everybody’s internal numbers on both sides didn’t have this being a race in time to start a field operation.”

Mr. Russell then went on to add that the committee also had to be realistic in its assessment of the race, which many party strategists deemed unwinnable even with an energized Democrat base.  Any investment from Democrats would have most assuredly been met with an equal or greater response from Republicans, while donors might have been misled into thinking that a victory was imminent.  Russell said, “The DCCC has to be honest with its donors about where they have opportunity.”  And he went on to say, “If you cry wolf all the time, it makes it very difficult to actually move resources you have a real race.”  But that misses a larger point, some progressive leaders say. To many on the left, the party went to great lengths to ignore the race entirely, refusing to acknowledge it in emails or fundraising pitches.

But we can rest assured that Democrats will continue to use every opportunity that they can to demonstrate that discontent, regarding President Trump, is mounting and tend to favor them come 2018.  Progressives and the DCCC will have another chance to get on the same page next week, during another special House election, this one in the north-Atlanta suburbs, one both parties see as a political bellwether. The political committee has had field staffers working in the Georgia congressional district for months and is spending $250,000 on get-out-the-vote ads on African-American radio stations.  The efforts are poised to benefit Jon Ossoff, who has become a favorite of the activist left, which has helped him raise more than $8 million for his campaign in only a couple of months.

National Democrats have long had reservations about the viability of the race, but they do see it as being a better bet than the contest in Kansas. And DCCC officials say their involvement there – along with the relationship they’ve tried building with activists groups and the 20 staffers they sent into Republican districts in February – is proof they have a strong partnership with their party’s grassroots.  Meredith Kelly, DCCC spokesmoron, said, “Energy amongst Democrats is off the charts, which the DCCC recognized and acted on earlier than any previous cycle.”  She said, “We now have a good sense of energy that’s out there in terms of how it actually translates at the ballot box.”  She added, “That certainly is going to shape how we look at the remaining special elections and the general elections next year.”

But the problem is not the Democrat strategy being applied to the elections, the problem, I would argue, is the message of the Democrat Party.  It’s a message that simply no longer connects with working class Americans.  Americans who place more importance on having a job than allowing thousands of refugees into the country. Things are already getting better because of Trump and the Republicans in Congress.  Hopefully, it will be years before the Democrats are ever able to again gain control of anything.  But lest we forget, liberals are far from being powerless because they still control the media, the majority of our most powerful corporations, and our entire education system.  And the ‘Republican Establishment’ in Congress continues to allow the ‘snowflake’ Democrats far more power than they have to.

Considering their habit of refusing to look in the mirror and correct your errors and doubling down on the far left rhetoric that caused your losses in the first place, there is zero reason to expect anything other than more losses. So let the Democrats spend all they want, I very much doubt they’ll win in Georgia.  In the end, The Republican will take his seat in Congress.  But even with all that being said, the Republicans in Congress, beginning with our hapless Speaker of the House, and a less than impressive leader in the Senate, must get busy working ‘together’ in advancing the Trump agenda or there will undoubtedly be Hell to pay come November 2018.  Replace Obamacare, cut taxes and begin work on ‘The Wall’ THIS YEAR and then brag about it all next year in the run up to the election and it’s a done deal.

I’M GETTING PRETTY FRUSTRATED!!!

frustration

I’ll be honest with you, these days I’m not quite sure who it is that’s more responsible for driving my blood pressure up, imbecilic Democrats like Chuckie Schumer and Stuart Smalley, or RINOs like McConnell, Ryan, McCain and Rubio.  And to tell you the truth, I don’t see a dime’s worth of difference between any of them.  I mean here we have our country headed down the crapper, and all the Democrats can do is whine about how they lost the last election while working to gain some level of revenge against the guy who not only won, but won fair and square.  When is it, exactly, that these low lives plan on growing up?  But while such behavior can, I suppose, be expected from those on the left, it’s these damn RINOs that we’re forced to contend with, who need to be taken out behind the woodshed.

I guess I’m just not sure what it is about the country going down in flames that none of these assholes just don’t understand.  And these damn Democrats are no more unhappy than those of us on the right were when Barry “Almighty” won not just once, but twice.  So Chuckie and Co. need to get over it, and move on for the sake of your country!  And with that said, it’s just once that I wish those on our side would behave as if they were all on the same team, instead of like a bunch of infantile malcontents.  There seems to be no sense of urgency in addressing the sad shape our country is in, which when it comes to the Democrats doesn’t really surprise me because they want the country to come apart at the seams, it’s what they’ve been working on for years.  But the Republicans, I just don’t get.

Republicans have been handed nothing less than a golden opportunity which could very well result in turning back most, if not all, of the damage done by Barry during his time in office, and in so doing improve the life of every single American citizen.  And all that’s being accomplished is a huge insane wasting of so much time.  Our GOP leadership team is a mixture of the completely gutless and totally incompetent, to the point where they come across as not having a clue about what it is that they’re supposed to be doing.  Most of them are people who, while they are quite enamored with their title, simply don’t see the need to do what it is that we the people demand of them.  They’re all very happy to go on Sunday talk shows, but they don’t want to actually do anything, even if they knew what to do.

As for all of this silly Russia stuff, it should have been squelched a long time ago.  There is no there, there and there never has been.  And there’s simply no reason to give credence to what are nothing more than rumors spawned by those who think that Hitlery was somehow cheated out of an election victory.  Hitlery lost because she was the most corrupt and dishonest candidate to ever run for president.  The Democrats know that just as most of those in the state-controlled media do.  But they thought they could pull the wool over the eyes of the American people just long enough to get the old girl into the White House and then be able to maintain the perfect balance in their bizarre leftist little world.  And when that didn’t happen they decided to slander and undermine the winner, Donald Trump.

Of course things would be much better if we actually had a bona fide free press in this country and not some leftwing propaganda smear machine that passes for a free press.  Frankly, I’m not sure what the point is of our media today.  I mean it’s now less than 10 percent of the American people who actually believe anything they hear, because most of what they hear is nothing more than pure leftwing propaganda, and is very easily recognizable as such.  Those who do choose to tune in are being fed only a steady diet of bullshit, and apparently they don’t seem to mind that all their being told is ‘fake news’.  Hell, they might even prefer it that way.  Too many folks today either choose not be bothered with, or couldn’t care less about, the fact that their country is so close to collapsing.  They would rather not think about it.

And you know, disappointment doesn’t even begin describe how I feel when the political antics of our supposed leaders are put on full display.  I saw better examples of leadership back in my days as a member of my local 4-H Club.  With the Democrats the main focus has become destroying the country.  And with the Republicans the main focus in simply playing it safe in the hope of getting re-elected.  But people like me are rapidly running out of reasons to vote for Republicans.  And I’ll tell you right now that if they don’t band together behind this president, and work to save what’s left of my country, my days of voting for Republicans are over.  It was in 2010, 2012 and 2014 that the Republicans essentially lied to me.  And if it turns out in 2016 that they’ve lied to me again, I’m done with them.

And on one final note, there has been much talk, even from myself, about how the Democrat Party can be said, today, to be hanging by a thread.  But, as we all know, if there is one certainty in the ever changing political landscape, it’s that the Republicans have a well-deserved reputation for shooting themselves in both feet, and on what has become a fairly frequent basis.  And it is such occasions as these that typically provide Democrats with numerous lifelines which they would not normally have had access to.  And that were it not but for the opportunities provided by the Republicans themselves, the Democrat Party would have long ago been relegated to the ash heap of American politics.  But sadly, such has not been the case, so America still has that Albatross hanging around her neck.

SEN. STUART SMALLEY CALLS TRUMP A RACIST???

smalley

I’m beginning to wonder at what point does accusing someone of being a ‘racist’ cease to have the desired effect?  And oddly enough how often is it that it’s the accuser who is usually the one guilty of possessing those very traits that more closely resemble the actual definition of being a racist.  Case in point is Al Franken, Senator and former Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member, who recently accused President Trump of being a “racist” for no other reason than because he has referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claims to be part Native American, as “Pocahontas.”   Left unmentioned, of course, is Franken’s own history of using ugly and rather offensive language regarding both women and minorities.  But then he’s a Democrat so is free to use such language without fear of being called on it.

And in an effort to enlighten those who may be unaware of the racist comments that Franken is known to have made, it was while speaking at the White House Correspondents Dinner back in 1996 that Franken “ridiculed [Gingrich] with a joke about his daughter’s first menstrual period.”  The joke was so out-of-bounds that then-Vice President Al Gore personally walked over to Gingrich’s table with an apology.  And it was The Weekly Standard noted that after the dinner, “Soon after, Gingrich encountered Franken and told him that, were Gingrich not a public figure, he’d have punched the comic out.”  And it was as a writer and ‘comic’ for SNL, that Franken helped craft a blatantly racist skit advertising a fake toothpaste called “Tarbrush,” meant to darken black people’s white teeth.

But it doesn’t end there, because Franken is also on record making anti-gay comments.  You see, it was also while working on SNL that Franken told Harvard University’s student newspaper, “I just don’t like homosexuals.”  And he went on to say, “If you ask me, they’re all homosexuals in the Pudding [a Harvard social club]. Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.”  Despite his own offensive past, Franken still had no problem calling out President Trump for his use of the term “Pocahontas” to refer to Warren.  If he had been in the room when Trump referred to Warren as Pocahontas, Franken said he would have responded: “Mr. President, with all due respect, that’s racist.”  And if you’re wondering, Franken is a member of something called the Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL).

This boob, Franken, ascended to his current position as a U.S. Senator courtesy of were typical Democrat tactics.  You see, back when he was first running for office, the Republican in the race, Norm Coleman, was said to have more votes, although all night it was said that it was too close to call.  Magically, a forgetful little old lady brought in almost three thousand votes the next morning that ‘were in the trunk of her car, where she had left them overnight’.  Now I know it was election night and there was a lot of excitement and all, but come on.  There wasn’t a Democrat, much less a Republican, who has ever believed he actually won his Senate seat.  So it’s hard to take anything he says seriously when everyone knows he cheated to get where he is today.  He needs to go to his safe space and leave the rest of us alone.

Seriously folks, if we’re gonna be honest here, what’s racist is the fact that Elizabeth Warren lied about being part American Indian so she could gain a position that obviously wasn’t meant for her at Harvard!  Then later, when it was found out that she has NO Native American ancestors (she lied to Harvard and America), she said that her family had only ‘assumed’ that they had American Indian ancestors because of their high cheekbones!  Now you all know what happens when you ‘assume’.  Oh, and not only does she and her family have no Native American ancestry, but, her family actually killed American Indians in the ‘trail of tears’!  Well, looks like that bit her in the arse.  But other Loony-Lying-Lefty-Race Baiting-Whiny-Loser-Nutjob Democrats simply ignore all of these pesky facts.

Look, like most, if not all, Democrats, Franken is nothing more than your basic communist and he always has been.  He’s been bought and paid for. He’s a disgrace to the country, and a prime example of all this is wrong with our government.  He’s a fake politician who won thanks to fake votes, and sits in a fake chair, as a fake Democrat Soros minion. It’s why he supports fake Warren and the fake “racist” meme that is by now so tired no one listens to it anymore.  Franken supports Warren, a liar, a cheat and an anti-American, who is now, apparently, the new “voice of the Democrat Party.”  God help us. With idiots like Schumer, Pelosi, Franken, Booker and Warren allowed to take part in governing America, we many recover from the last eight years.  They’re totally corrupt and have been in their positions far too long.
