“American Democracy”

Robert Reich, Sec. of Labor under Bill Clinton, is a gem. Says that Trump has ravaged “American democracy,” whatever that is. With the economy and labor market doing as well as it is, you’d have to look far and wide to see what it is that the Trump administration has ravaged.

In his world, the “ravaging” was on the Liberal agenda of his and his Party. Exactly what President Trump was elected to do. Trump branded it as Make America Great Again.

See, “American democracy” to Reich, is what the Left refer to as the way they want America to be, not constrained by the Constitution. To Reich and his fellow travelers, they want you to believe that their way is the right way, and, are entitled to keep it that way. Conservatism? Republicans? They’re an aberration. And otherwise, just evil.

I took the time to read the article that was in his Tweet, hoping to find what the ravaging of American democracy comment was about. Of course, nothing there. That’s just Bob suffering from TDS.

 

Dems Playing With A Losing Hand

So what are Democrats running on this election season? It isn’t “For the People.” Remember that? It’s Medicare For All. In other words, full blown socialized medicine at the expense of the economy, senior citizens, and everyone else.

That they chose a proven loser of an issue to run on, aside from Trump is the Devil, shows that their party is lost to the lunatic Left. Deaf and blind to the economy, employment, unemployment, your kids’ education, your safety, and our nation’s sovereignty.

The consequences of (God forbid) a Democrat majority in DC, will not only halt, but reverse the progress made since the Obama administration expired.  And, will turn the country into something resembling Venezuela. 

Curious how Democrats can, with a straight face, campaign on killing the economy and, fundamentally change America. “But everybody, including illegal aliens, will have ‘free’ health care. It’s a human right,” don’t you know?

It’s also curious how the same party, dishonest as it is, has not tried to claim credit for any of the progress in the short time President Trump has been in office. That trial balloon was when Obama took credit for the Trump economy. Then burst.

In the spirit of Halloween, Seema Verma, Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) tweeted this. “This year’s scariest Halloween costume goes to…

No excuse for sitting this one out. Too much is at stake. It’s all at stake. Two words, Vote Republican. The Democrats are playing with a losing hand.

Democrats Reveal

Nothing like Democrats, and whatever Bernie Sanders is, coming out of the closet with their love affair for distributing your wealth. Government supplied everything.

The fact that he says that so many young people embrace Socialism is all on its own, if true, a testament to the failure of the education system our kids are subject to. Or victims of.

So predictable.

No Voter Fraud Here!

170 registered voters in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District are listed as being “over 116 years old.” And 75 of them voted!

But there’s no voter fraud, Democrats say. (Russians excepted) They say that cleaning up your voting rolls of inactive participants is voter suppression. Give me a break. There’s always a provisional ballot for that 116 yr old Democrat who didn’t have a stamp and pen.

The Occupy Generation?

Some people call Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the “new face” of the Democratic Party. Of course, establishment Democrats will disagree. They love socialism but are afraid to come out and say it. Ocasio-Cortez is like them, only out of the closet, so to speak.

In an attempt to explain why unemployment levels have dropped to lows of 4% and below under the Trump administration, the Democratic congressional candidate, an economics and international relations major, explained, “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs.”

Oh my how they’ve grown. From Occupy Wall Street, to Occupy Pensacola, to what, Occupy Politics?

What’s new is there is no spooky mask. And now they have to speak in complete sentences. Revealing a lot more than just a pretty face.

Is she the new face of the Democrat Party? Or is she a trouble maker for Democrats, creating a divide in the Party? Sort of like the political version of Occupy Wall Street. Politically speaking, whichever it is, it will turn to the benefit of the Republican Party.

Viva la Resistance!

Dems Declare Open Borders

Here! Here! For President Trump for solving the faux controversy about separating illegal minor children from illegal (parent/coyote) adults .

“I’ll be doing something that’s somewhat preemptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation I’m sure,” Trump said.

Once ostensibly giving in to pressure for keeping families together, and the dramatic pictures prostituted by the media, signing this executive order has drawn out Democrats to fully admit the truth about their idea of immigration.

It is the goal of the Democrat(ic) Party to have open borders. People entering the country illegally should be a catch and release operation. In other words, keeping the family together in our country. No deportation, no turning them around. No holding for a judicial hearing. Translation, open border.

What a great platform for Democrats to run on. They can’t lie about their true motives any more. Thank You President Trump for drawing Democrats out before the mid-terms. Republican candidates will remember.

Veto It

I hope the President vetoes that crazy Omnibus spending spree.

The Republican leadership in Congress has just made history. They’ve spent more borrowed money in one year, and grew the government more, than President Obama. Adding to the generational theft he built. These are the same republicans that campaigned on smaller government.

The establishment is so against their apple cart being overturned that they are proposing a budget that, aside from the 10% increase in military spending, represents nothing of what Trump wants. Certainly nothing that the people who voted for Trump want.

How does this make any sense? Forget the excuse that “you need 60 votes.” Seems to me Democrats got everything they wanted. And there’s only 49 of them. They stay united. Their republican counterparts don’t.

Seems to me this bill is designed to separate Trump from his supporters. And it would start at the mid-terms. Losing Republican seats will speed up the ‘impeach Trump’ movement among Democrats. Game over.

Domestically, this bill is probably the biggest test for Trump  so far. This is a battle in the war between the Establishment and Trump. It’s not D’s v R’s. And Trump needs to veto it. To save America’s future, as well as his own political future. Call out the R’s who voted for it, and suggest voters choose a republican who will help him advance the agenda he campaigned, and campaigns, on. His supporters will stick with him if he does.

Durbin Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) was in The White House for a meeting to make an immigration policy that benefits Americans. At that meeting, chain immigration necessarily came up.

It’s not that Durbin doesn’t know what chain migration is, because in 2010, he knew exactly what it was when he was advocating for the Dream Act. He ostensibly worked to end “chain migration.”

“The DREAM Act would not allow what is known as chain migration,” Durbin said. “In fact, DREAM Act students would have very limited ability to sponsor their family members for legal status.” [Emphasis added]

What’s different today? His political heritage has swelled to the point that now “chain” has only one meaning. For him, a chain is for enslaving Black people. The first, and only, meeting attendee to feel a need to tell the media what he wanted them to know about a private meeting with the president, Durbin said . . .

“When it came to the issue of “chain migration” I said to the President: “Do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe that they migrated to America in chains. And when you speak about ‘chain migration’ it hurts them personally.” He said: “Oh, that’s a good line.”

And of course, the media ate it up. It didn’t have to make any sense because it fit their narrative.

I do like Trump’s response, “Oh, that’s a good line.” Translation: typical race card BS, stick with that and 2018 will be even easier.

For Dick Durbin to tell anyone, let alone the President of the United States, that “chain migration” means slavery migration to African-Americans, he wins the Lunch Counter’s Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day (M.R.I.O.T.D.) Award.

Missed by the media, of course, and everyone else but Patterico,

let’s focus on a different aspect of Durbin’s statement — because it shows his ability to be absurdly sanctimonious with a straight face. Namely, he claims that he told the President that “chain migration” is offensive to black people, because they came here in chains. Yes, he really said that.

Democrats have spent their total existence dominating Black people. Since the Lyndon Johnson administration, the plantation is in  thought and identity politics, and the chains have been replaced with an ideology that will keep them there.

Trump On The Trail

Was fortunate enough to see President Trump tonight in Pensacola, Florida. Was good to see that despite the freezing (for locals) weather, 12,000 of us filled the Pensacola Civic Center, or Bay Center as it is called today.

Just as on the campaign trail, President Trump was energetic and having fun, like everyone else there. This time, he not only spoke of what was in store for the coming months on important matters like tax cuts, health care, safe cities and neighborhoods, immigration and border security, draining the swamp and more, he started the night bringing us up to date with what he has accomplished in the first ten months of his administration. And it was a lot. Which begs the question, had it not been coming directly from him, do you think you would have learned about it from the news media?

Tonight’s event was billed as a campaign-style event, and that’s what it was. But it was so much more than that. Like most everything else Trump does, he is finally breaking the mold of Republicans governing by complacency.

As President George H.W. Bush found out, winning one election doesn’t mean you can win another by assuming everybody understands conservative principles.

It was President Clinton and later President Barack Obama who never stopped campaigning. Not one month of their collective sixteen years was a campaign ever over. President G. W. Bush followed his father and, never defended himself from constant attacks from his political opponents. You know, the ones whining about how divisive Republicans are.

Enter President Donald Trump. Along with everything else so non-establishment, Trump knows that to do what the American people elected him to do, he has to keep the people engaged and informed. Because he, you, and I know that the media certainly will not keep us  informed. More like deformed.

I doubt there is anyone who knows the media like Trump. What motivates him is saving America as it was founded to be, and meeting the folks, the forgotten ones, working people pursuing the American Dream. And no better way to do that than to keep the campaign current and constant.

Trump’s support comes from the American people. People who like him fighting back, taking the fight to them and the failed policies of the Left.  All while making the case for his policies and agenda that they and most Americans want and support.

So the next mind blower for the media, Democrats, the Swamp, and never-Trump Republicans is that Donald Trump is not leaving the campaign trail. Unlike Obama, the media did not make Trump. And hard as they try, the media can not break him or separate Trump’s supporters from him.
