Donald Trump’s Annihilation
of the Democratic Party

American Greatness, by Conrad Black

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/7/2019 12:28:39 PM

The nadir of the amoral egotism of what might broadly be called “Me-ism” has been reached by the avant garde of the Democratic Party in their race to the bottom of the electoral depths. The renunciation of any notions of sacrifice, patriotic pride, the spirituality of life, or the recognition of anything except the smash-and-grab politics of endless atomized grievances and instant gratification of convenience, has reached what must, in its way, be the end of history.(Snip)The informal, spontaneous, emergent strategy of the Democrats is finally erupting and foaming from the mouths and nostrils of

OP Comments:
This is a wonderfully written indictment of the Democrat Party, backed up with Black’s bill of particulars. He believes President Trump is the only president in recent memory who could annihilate the Democrats. He also believes that they have managed to set themselves up for that ultimate annihilation.

Akin to what Lincoln said about Grant:

Despite his acknowledged flaws, we have the best General carrying our flag.

Godspeed, Mr. President.

Let´s not only annihilate the Dems in 2020, but let´s take back the house ..

.. with or without the Establishment RINOs ..

.. even if that means without the GOP and its globalist donors.

I hope you are right and I am in complete agreement. If the pendulum theory is correct, it is definitely time for it to swing back in the other direction. The Republic can’t take more crazy democrat ideology and survive. It is becoming more clear everyday that Donald J. Trump is the right man, at the right time, and at the right place. God bless him. Who would have thought? God certainly does work in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.

President Trump´s alleged ´´flaws´´ are that he does not act like a slimy, back-stabbing, slick-talking, lying swamp creature. Not like Mitt Romney at all. Not even like George Bush!

We want a President that operates ´´outside the box´´ of the Washington swamp, and we have one. I don´t see any flaws.
MAGA/KAGA!

From the article; "Abortion is too intrusive, too inconvenient; let the children be born and then the mother can decide whether she wants to be a mother after all, or kill the child, or give it up for adoption." How can it be possible for a woman who went nine months carrying a child, going into labor, and ultimately, deliver the newborn, have the mentality to even think to decide the fate of this human being brought into the world? What kind of woman can this possibly be? I´m referring to those that have a sense of conscience and moral bearings. I know there are those that cannot think pass a basic biological impulse and dump their children in trashbins. Those should be sterilized immediately.

Re #6, I believe that harsh passage was his way of being against abortion at any time. Let the mother carry the baby to full term, deliver her baby, and then make her own decision rather than being guided to infanticide by her doctor.

The odds are that she would change her mind, either keeping her child or putting that child up for adoption.

Great Article. I would only disagree with the idea that the President now has a Senate ready to work with him to get great things done. I believe the Senate needs yet another purging. There are still many Never-Trumpers in the Mix who are working against him. McConnell being one of them. There is NO REASON in the world why President Trump´s Judicial Nominees, in the hundreds, are STILL waiting to be confirmed. If McConnell were on Trump´s side, he would have used the Nuclear Option and confirmed all of them in one week. If those Judges were in place, much of Trump´s Agenda would be in place. There are TWO Judges waiting for confirmation to the NINTH Circuit. What a difference it would make to have them in place. Also, it´s time for the Powers that Be to start questioning WHERE Justice Ginsburg is and if she will be able to FULLY do her Job. If not, time to fill that Seat with a CONSERVATIVE. We can NOT count on Justice Roberts to side with Conservatives. He is OBVIOUSLY being Blackmailed by someone. It´s clear by his judging! Also, I do believe Adam Schiff needs to be shut down. Trump should have a full team working on finding dirt that would shut him up. He is going to be the Thorn in Trump´s side until 2020 when hopefully REPUBLICANS will see what harm they allowed by NOT VOTING in Republicans this past election. Get busy and have candidates ready to win before 2020. We need to PRIMARY a few of the Never-Trumpers as well! Either they get on Board or they face the Jeff Flake option!

What the President did and is still doing is he took the lefts´ rules for radicals schtick and handed the dims´ and the msms´ heads back to them on a platter.

But, let´s not get too complacent about this. the struggle isn´t over yet. Not by a long shot. We must continue to support the President each minute of every day today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year...the year after that and the second term. Talk it up, longer and louder. Evil never stops and neither will we.

Unfortunately, I think we are riding the last Republican high wave. If you look at 2016 demographics on voting you will see that if only minorities votes the whole US was blue, with women it was 80% blue. The Democrat party is going after the minority vote, this is why legal and illegal immigration is such a huge issue with the Dems. If stays where it is at within 4-6 years Republicans will have a very small voting block. People immigrating to America don´t want to become Americans!! Again why you see the Dems hate America mantra.

While an excellent article, Mr. Black´s major premise seems to overlook a few important realities:

1. The wholesale seizure/control of the education system by liberals and their ilk and its accumulative effect in dumbing down and brainwashing the electorate. The question: will the new coalition of which the author speaks be able to offset 30 years of brainwashing at the polls?

2. The almost complete control of the lamestream media by democrats and liberals, to the point that they actually receive and regurgitate democrat talking points as they "report" the news. Not only that, but the majority of these people cannot report anything these days without their hatred of Trump coming to the forefront.

3. The blockage of effective border security/control and the continued import of dependent people who are virtually guaranteed to vote democrat because the dems have perfected the art of "I will give you whatever you want if you vote for me."

4. The impacts of #3 are further amplified by the continual democrat/liberal pandering to the millions of illegals that are are already in this country - demonstrated in spades by what is happening to California.

I was also surprised by Black’s assumption that Trump had Senate support. Mitch is the head swamp turtle. He’s parceling out the judgeship confirmations so there is just enough to make Republican voters think he’s “trying his best” to pass the MAGA agenda. He’s slow-walking the President’s appointments and legislation as his contribution to the survival of the Uniparty.

I’m still thinking about the brilliant SOTU. I wonder how many other Americans are as well. Our President was commanding, articulate, compassionate and inspirational. The exact opposite of the propaganda pushed by the enemedia.

MAGA – The tide turned Tuesday night.

Re a poster who wrote about abortion.
Also think about this:

A mother delivers a health baby. The first thing that is asked of the mother either by hospital staff or physician: Do you want to keep this baby or do you want to terminate by neglect your baby? The question comes throug government fiat. After a mother delivers a baby, she must be given the choice to kill her baby (infanticide) or keep her baby. Maybe Cuomo et al have this in mind already. God help us.

Latching on to #21, I am still nauseated at the wimpy cop-out of a dude known as Cardinal Dolan of New York in his trying to lend cover and explain away the infanticide law passed in Hew York when questioned by Fox and Friends reporters regarding the ex-communication of Cuomo et al. because of their open contempt for church teachigs.

I have known some good and devout Catholics but wonder why they would stay in a church that diminishes its credibility by failure to act when the "sinners" are celebrities/fat cat donors.

Dear hearts, my intent is not to be judgmental but just saying......

#22 – This Catholic will always remain Catholic because the Church offers the Fullness of Faith in The Eucharist. The Church is a hospital for sinners, not a hotel for the righteous, and while we would hope those elevated to the bishop’s staff would always be examples of courageous Christian action, they are still only fallible men in this life. Cardinal Dolan has been terribly disappointing, especially in this episode, but cowardly acts by the hierarchy are not enough to separate me from Deposit of Faith found only in the 2,000-year history of the Catholic Church.

Remember, this is the same Church that produced St. John Paul II. The Holy Spirit works in mysterious ways.

The idea of America is under assault today from those who inhabit quarters on both the Right and the Left. Trump has chosen to fight for America’s sovereignty and against the bloated beast of globalism, and that beast has champions on both sides of the traditional political aisle.

Trump Declares a National Emergency.
What Happens Next?

Posted By: earlybird- 2/15/2019 11:34:42     Post Reply
In declaring a national emergency to try to build his long-promised border wall, President Trump invoked extraordinary and seldom-used authorities to bypass Congress’s constitutionally granted power of the purse. Democrats are fuming, and many members of Mr. Trump’s party are uneasy about the precedent that such a declaration will set. Lawmakers seeking to block the president have two paths — one in Congress, the other in the courts. Democrats, who control the House, will drive the opposition. Party leaders did not detail their plans on Thursday, as they reviewed options and awaited the text of the president’s declaration.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.
