Why Aren’t Democrats Walking
Away With the Midterms?

New York Times, by Bret Stephens

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/3/2018 4:44:40 AM

The night Donald Trump was elected was supposed to be, for most liberals and a few conservatives, the beginning of the end of the world. The economy would surely implode. The U.S. would probably blunder into a catastrophic war. The new American president would be blackmailed into conducting foreign policy as Putin’s poodle. None of that has happened — not yet, at any rate. On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported the fastest rate of annual wage hikes in almost a decade, depriving Democrats of one of their few strong arguments about the true state

Despite the encouraging title, it is, after all, the New York Times, and that means no click.

This guy is a perfect example of why the Dems are not winning - projection. What he says of President Trump is what the Dems themselves are guilty of.

Until the Dems fix the projection problem and understand the reality of their policies, they have little hope of winning anything because they portray themselves opposed to the 70%+ of the legal American citizens who make up the ´Deplorables´.

It´s because the dims and what is left of the dim party is morally and politically bankrupt. More importantly, it´s because Divine Intervention brought us a President who exposed the evilness and corruption which is rampant in our federal government. The dim´s secular way to the new world order could not compete against His Word.

Meanwhile, back on earth, all the dims have left is ridicule and hate. Their chickens have come home to roost following 100+ years of failed progressive policies.

Now that the DemocRATs have to deal with a President who will not tolerate their vitriol, they have been forced into revealing their true intentions...Socialism and the ruining of a great country.

I hope a lot of Dems have walked away from this vile party of antisemetic, racist, power hungry, money grabbing deplorables.

What´s funny to me is that the DemocRATs seem so surprised!

Stephens is a proud Never Trumper who seems to have graduated to a Hate Trumper.

Stephens admits Trump´s successes, "at least for now".

But they apparently don´t matter because Trump is talking about "the politics of cultural anxiety, social division or ethnic scaremongering"

"The mystery of Donald Trump is what impels him to overturn the usual rules ... fear is what’s on the Republican menu"

WHAT usual rules? Those of the dems? They have been masters of creating victims and labeling the rest of us deplorables. The rules of the loser elite Republicans who refused to deal with TRUTH and REALITY and lost and lost. They won some elections, but they never dealt with the REAL issues.

The Never Trumpers never deal with the ongoing unraveling of America orchestrated by dems, Leftists and elites. WE have a quite a bit of anxiety and fear relating to what has been happening. Trump isn´t making it up, he is confronting what is really there.

Stephens talks about "moral and institutional corrosion", again, as if Trump has invented it. BO´s government was massively corrupt. There is NO “nice” way to say that just like there is no nice way to deal with the murderer in Pittsburg.

Further, Trump is not driving the conflict, he is responding to it. The media is reporting 92% negatively on Trump, some of their reporting being outrageous. Trump labels them fake news and enemies of the People, WHICH THEY ARE. The media created this war and are fighting it by throwing away all the rules. They have admitted as such.

"The president cannot unite us" because the Left REFUSES to let it happen. Their first response was to absurdly blame Trump just like Stephens continues to blame him for the insane people ranged against him.

Bret Stephens is a NeverTrumper who is outraged at Trump´s uncouth persona, such that he would deliver our precious Republic to Hillary and the Democrats and their mob.

Bret works now for the NY Times, at whose dais sits Sarah Jeong, who describes people like Bret as, d--s f--g white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.

Nice. Makes you proud, Bret?

On the NYT´s editorial board sits Mara Gay, who says of people the color of Bret, I’m not willing to let white voters off the hook.... they need to move from there to reality, which is we have a white nationalist president who is a threat to American democracy. Regardless of party or policy views, you should put country over party first.

So Bret works for that outfit and kvetches about the rough exterior of our president.

Tell you what. I think Ms Jeong, in the quote above, pegged Stephens pretty well.

Stephens writes: "The tragedy of Pittsburgh illustrates, among other things, that the president cannot unite us, even in our grief."

To him, it´s nothing to do with the media, including his own NYT, and Dem politicians blaming Trump for the killing, constantly and hysterically. Did the Oklahoma City bombing illustrate that Clinton couldn´t unite us, even in our grief? No wonder the rabbi was surprised that Trump was so kind and warm, a side of him the rabbi thought Americans didn´t know about. Well, we knew because we didn´t swallow the media´s portrayal of him. And let´s hope the majority of voters don´t either.

The question should be why aren´t the Republicans walking away with the midterms? It used to be James Carvel´s "It´s the economy stupid!" (actually the economy was doing fairly well but the msm lied for Clinton). But not anymore. The economy today is the best in my lifetime. Now instead of the economy it´s the President. His tweets, he´s not a uniter but a fighter, he punches back, he wants a border wall, he wants to stop illegal aliens, he wants to stop anchor babies, he and Melanie are pro-life how regressive is that, he´s a racist, he´s a white nationalist, he´s says that all media is the enemy of WTP (not really just the fake news media), he doesn´t care about the world, he´s not an enlightened globalist, he only cares about America etc. These are the reasons being given by the msm and NeverTrumpers to vote for Democrats. Never underestimate the power of white guilt and its latest mutation white privilege to vote against a great economy and a great President who loves this country!

The way he describes his crowd as “educated” is SO offputting to tens of millions of smart, hard-working people (most auto-mechanics today have more common sense and can do math and logic better than the “graduates” of these leftwing, easy-subject, liberal indoctrination centers we call colleges; which themselves don’t even require history or civics any more) and in his self-appointed elitism, like all the rest of the NY/DC/LA/Chi/SanFran globalist crowd (Dems and GOPe alike) Stephens cannot see that the rest of us would vote for a dime store manniquin if it meant we could stick it to these media jerks and would-be overlords again.

The fact that Trump has been an AMAZING president fighting like a tiger for us normals hasn’t hurt either!

Because I don´t want my taxes raised, open borders, socialism, my medicare that I paid for given to those that didn´t, more government, more regulation, climate change hoaxes, lies, and a poor economy. Look at the Democrat left wing extremists in Congress, and there is a group of people I would never agree to give any power to. I run my business, not you, Mr. Stephens, so take yourself and your Democrats, and get out of my life.

FTA: "The North American Free Trade Agreement has been saved with minor modifications and a new name."

You haven´t been doing your homework, Bret. See this is what these snobs will never understand. We Deplorables can actually read and think. The USMCA is not just a name change, it is a FUNDAMENTAL change. It closes the "back door" loophole that China and the EU were able to exploit by using cheap overseas material (steel e.g.)and components and then assembling products (cars e.g.)in Mexico and Canada duty free.
That´s why so many companies fled to Mexico and Canada. Now that it´s changed, those jobs are coming back.
Plus new markets have opened up in Canada (dairy e.g.) that were closed to us before.
HUGE difference. Leveled the playing field.
That´s what makes these elitists so annoying. They blithely make statements like the quote above as if it is unquestioned fact and it´s just wrong. I´ll bet he actually believes there were only minor changes to the agreement. Either that or he´s lying through his teeth.
So annoying.

Why aren´t Democrats walking away with midterms? Because people remember 8 years of Obama, what a disaster it was, and see the Democrats doubling down on it becoming even more extreme. Its really ugly.

People don´t want that. What the democrats are doing doesn´t even remotely resemble governing.

On the other hand, what Trump is doing really is governing. He is looking out for Americans. All Americans. He is doing things neither party would do because their hands are tied by their own dirty politics.

Bret Stephens in an illustration of why Republicans were so terrible at governing for so many years. Their NeverTrump narrative is tiresome and false. To think I always believed his columns when he was in Israel for the WSJ. Once here Bret becomes anti-Amercan. Yes, Globalists are anti-American. We are in the middle of a much needed political renaissance of American Nationalism. The entire world is benefiting from Trump and the USA. These NeoCons do much damage to US.

Now is the moment to get out and vote straight Republican and pray the Trump Revolution can continue. Business tax 21%, capital repatriation tax 10%, AMT gone for most people, end of Death Tax, ANWAR, Baraq H. Obama regulations and legacy gone, coal mines opening, steel mills roaring, iron ore mines open In Minnesota, largest producer of petroleum in the world, LNG exports ramping up, trade deals with Mexico, Canada and South Korea with Japan and China to follow the same mold, 4.2-3.5% GDP growth, maximal number of USA workers in history, Paris Agreement, Iran deal, North Korea quiet, Islamic State defeated, Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, 100 lifetime federal judges appointed by the end of 2018, peace and prosperity.

Thank you President Donald J. Trump for these amazing achievements. The sun is shining again over the fruited plain. It is morning in America. Vote accordingly.

The Lackluster Democratic Field

Beto O´Rourke is lost. The former Democratic congressman, who unsuccessfully challenged Ted Cruz in last year´s election, has spent the last few weeks in a confused and melancholy state. Something possessed him to share images from a recent dental cleaning, perhaps the grossest introduction of a potential presidential candidate in the nation´s history. He gave an interview to the Washington Post where the only specific plank in his immigration platform was opposition to President Trump´s border wall. In the same interview, he mused that the Constitution may no longer apply to the United States, since we´re an "empire"

Border Patrols agents seized hundreds of pounds of cocaine at an unsecured area of the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). "Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading ´bundles of narcotics´ into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river," the Washington Examiner reported. "The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to ´abruptly´ drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico."

The defeat in Parliament of Prime Minister May’s compromise with Europe opens the way to true independence for Britain. It presents the chance for a redemption of the referendum of June 2016, when Britons were asked “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” and 51.89% answered “Leave the European Union.” It is too soon to declare mission accomplished. The future can still be lost, but Britain just took a giant step in the right direction. It makes clear that Britain’s future lies with a “no deal” Brexit.

New York Times wasn´t always so suspicious

Newsrooms turned their attention again this week to the never-ending Russia investigation and their storylines on President Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. So it’s as good a time as any to recall the New York Times’ posture on Russia before 2016. (Snip)But the Times was much more generous in describing what you might otherwise call “secretive communications” with Russia when Barack Obama was president. In 2012, during his re-election campaign, Obama was caught by a hot mic whispering to then-President Dmitry Medvedev that he was potentially

I appreciate David’s response to my column on the FBI counterintelligence investigation of Trump, but unfortunately don’t find it persuasive. David emphasizes how the regulations governing a counterintelligence investigation focus on the activity of the foreign power. Yeah, sure. But that’s why the Times story was so explosive. It reported on a counterintelligence investigation of Trump himself, who is obviously not a foreigner, but the duly elected president of the United States. The Times story says that the FBI feared Trump might have been a witting or unwitting agent of the Russians.

The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel. I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here.

I’ve changed my mind about building a wall along the Mexican border. Build it! The US government is shut down and the economic ramifications will be great. Not only are the families of people who’ve been put out of work being hurt but the entire economy is going to be affected. Challenger Gray & Christmas, a research firm, estimates that the shutdown could reduce consumer spending by $3.4 billion a month. And since the consumer is the biggest part of our economy, that’s going to smart. The hard-headed politicians in Washington are clear: President Trump says

A list of 50 Jesuits who were found by their organization to have been credibly accused of abusing minors was released this week, revealing that some of the alleged abusers circled through various institutions, sometimes for years, after the alleged abuse took place. The list, released by the Northeast Province of Jesuits on Tuesday, shows that much of the abuse was reported years after it allegedly took place, meaning that officials may not have known about the wrongdoing when they transferred priests from one institution to the next. However, nine priests the list states,

Ohr gave a closed-door transcribed interview last August sharing details of his 2016 meetings with British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier later used to secure a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide. The interview was part of the Republican-led House Oversight and Judiciary Committee probes.

As the shutdown rolls on, taxpayers have been left wondering: What does it mean for tax season? Earlier this month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that tax season would open on time (January 28, 2019) and, in a departure from previous years, that tax refunds would be issued during the shutdown. Over the weekend, the IRS announced that Free File, a free online software program available through IRS.gov, was open for business even as IRS doors remain closed. Today, taxpayers finally received more information about what to expect from the IRS during the government shutdown.

Politics is cyclical. Republicans will not always hold the White House. Democrats will be back. If only they realized now the threats to our democracy that presently are being institutionalized. Threats that will endanger them and their future leaders terribly — and all of us. When “progressives” had Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt in power, did they ever imagine a Reagan Revolution? During Reagan’s fabulously successful conservative presidency, could anyone have imagined a radical-left Wasted Obama Decade? When Obama was at his height, with commanding control of the House and a filibuster-proof Senate, could anyone have predicted fearlessly that America

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement refuting that. She shared that statement in a

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm.

An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause.

The Americans with Disabilities Act, made law in 1990, says it is unlawful

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews joined the chorus of pundits losing their minds over President Donald Trump cancelling Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Afghanistan — but admitted that the president made the Democrats “look like fools.” President Trump had hilariously cancelled the trip as the Democrats were in a bus on their way to the flight. (Photo) “Let’s talk about the cheap shot part of it. They were in the bus heading to Joint Base Edward — Andrews. He made them look like fools sitting in the capitol at the driveway basically trying to figure out what’s coming next. He caught them in
