Confessions of a
disillusioned Democrat

Washington Times, by Joe Piscopo

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/15/2014 5:02:10 AM

I’m a Democrat. I’ve been a Democrat my entire life. I used to utter those two sentences with pride and would shout them from the highest rooftops. Now, I’m almost embarrassed to say those words. I almost can’t articulate my political affiliation in public (or on the radio) without immediately offering an apology and an explanation. How did I get here? I’ve been asking myself that question a lot lately. The more I ask it, the more I come to the realization that I haven’t changed all that much. Sure, I’m a little older … OK, a lot older. I

Apparently Piscopo is not aware that the fork in the road for Dems was Joe Kennedy Sr., who believed/forecasted that national politics would morph into a business, just like any other business (Wall Street, pro sports, Hollywood). The days of country farmers-turned-politicians-turned-back-to-country-farmers (e.g. Harry Truman) were over. From JFK onward, all national DEM politicians were immensely powerful/corrupt, and would retire worth many many $millions. Clinton is worth hundreds of Millions, Gore the same. Obama will likely be a billionaire. (Where did that stimulus money disappear to??)

For people like Piscopo to much talking, too little thinking.

i have a feeling there are quite a few who feel the same as Piscopo but who havent really articulated it yet. Hopefully theire views will be reflected in the midterms.

They´ve done far, far too much damage to ever, ever forgive them. You woke up too late Joe. I was born and raised into a democratic family also but learned three decades ago who they really are; CPUSA, disguised as Americans, nothing less.

Agree with some posters, but want to caution against some of the comments.

Reagan grew up a Democrat, as did I and many other now conservatives. Pescipo may have taken time to get there, but he is recognizing the evil the current Democrat Party has become.

We need to welcome him and others like him with open arms and not raise the drawbridge to keep them out!

Grace. Principles. Optimism. That will help us take the country back.

Wholeheartedly agree with #13. As a product of the 60s generation I was apolitical at best. I didn´t pay much attention until Ronald Reagan came along. It was just before that time that I started a family and a business- both of which were greatly harmed by the Carter years. I´ve never looked back since then and it has become even more apparent that we cannot allow these progressives to hold any position of authority , if at all possible.

I have no doubt after reading the article, which lever Joe will pull in the privacy of the voting booth and expect that he may sway quite a few others that have come to a similar conclusion. If not, we´re in big trouble.

I grew up in a Republican family, have voted Republican since the age of 18, have sent donations to lots of Republican candidates and no longer call myself a Republican. The Republican Party is useless as are most of the Republicans in DC. I´m now a Tea Party Conservative.

If you believed in civil rights like Lyndon Johnson, then that explains everything. He was one of the biggest racists around, like most of the Democratic Party. Anything they´ve done for equality was only done for political power, not out of any ethical or moral conviction.

He´s not alone. Some polls have shown people age 60+ have shifted toward favoring Republicans rather dramatically. They see that the ´progress´ Democrats are bringing about is actually more poverty, more crime, and a diminished nation on all fronts.

I have never voted for a democrat in 50 years, but did admire the old scoop jackson and warren magnusen types for their dedication to country first. There were many more, but they are a species long extinct, replaced by greedy party first me second ideologues like reid, pelosi, schumer et al. Piscopo is right on and it has been said many times. Dems are now the international socialist party. They are far from "democratic".

I was a Democrat because while it was clear to me that the Republican politicians were out of touch and cared for only the upper class, Democrats like Franklin Roosevelt cared for the masses and helping the working man.

That mindset remains ingrained in the American psyche as much as the one that blacks can´t get ahead because of slavery. What is it going to take to change it?

The party of the working class has sold out to fat cats!

I have news for you Joe.

The Marxist democrat party has never been for the working class. They use the working class by taking millions of dollars from unions to pay for their turning America into another communist heaven like all their other great countries of freedom. The unions take the money from the workers as tribute to their millionaire union leadership and Marxist communist democrats. To the unions and the Marxist democrats the workers are merely useful idiots working to pay them to destroy America´s greatness.

For one thing try reading Democrat for life Zell Miller´s book ´A National Party No More´: The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat".

"Naive" seems to be the appropriate word for Piscopo. He believes the words these Democrat politicians and media spout, and he does not take into account the facts. FDR extended the depression by years and LBJ initiated the destruction of the black community. He longs for the media lionization of people who are Democrats or celebrities. His kind of shallowness is contemptible.

Is he waiting for the Democrat media to show adulation for some Republicans?

The Civil Rights Acts were passed with the help of the party of Lincoln. A higher percentage of the GOP voted for the bill than the democrat party of Bull Connor.

This was in keeping with the GOP passing the 14th amendment to allow the Freedmen to enjoy the same rights as others instead of the other party´s Jim Crow laws.

Then note which party gets the most money from the big donors and caters to billionaires. There is a difference between those freedom seekers and those who are just rent seekers.

#13 is correct. This is no time to rebuke anyone for being taken in. The left has always won over their voters with "compassion" and "care" and you can´t blame anyone who wishes for those noble intentions.

It sometimes takes awhile to realize that Republicans have these same desires, but believe truly that there are better and more realistic ways to provide them.

I was stunned the other day to hear a Democrat ask if Republicans REALLY believe that abortion was murder . I could not believe they actually thought we just wanted to "saddle" some unwed mother with a baby.

We will only bridge the gap between us by accepting the ones who are willing to talk and welcome them to the dialogue.

In 2012, a remarkable battle unfolded in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Patton Boggs, the D.C. lobbying-and-law powerhouse co-founded by Thomas Hale Boggs Jr., faced off against Chevron, the sort of multinational corporation Patton Boggs normally represents. To the amazement of legal observers, the giant oil company accused Patton Boggs of participating in an extortion campaign rooted in the rain forest in Ecuador.

Why is the Brendan Tevlin

On June 25, 2014, 19 year-old Brendan Tevlin hopped into his car to return home after spending the evening at a friend’s house. Minutes later, Ali Muhammad Brown approached the vehicle as it was stopped at a red light and fired ten rounds into the car, killing Brendan. Originally, the teen’s murder was labeled an attempted robbery, allowing the media to remain silent. Now, court documents have revealed that Brown’s motivation for killing Tevlin had less to do with thievery, and more to do with America’s pushback against Jihadist terrorism in the Middle East. Via the New York Daily News: According to court documents,

Study Finds Michelle O’s Healthy Food Program
Elitist, Sexist, and Shames Working Mothers
Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/16/2014 5:38:47 AM     Post Reply
First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Whatever the result of the forthcoming referendum, the relations between England and Scotland will henceforth undergo a profound change. Under the present arrangement the Scots have twice as many votes per head as the English – one to govern themselves, by electing members to the Scottish Parliament, and one to govern the English, by electing members to the Parliament of the United Kingdom. And while the English are more likely to vote Conservative, the Scots send only Labour members to Westminster – even if they don’t send them to Edinburgh. This is because the Scots see the Labour Party as

A former Veterans Affairs supervisor has been sentenced for stealing up to $20,000 of government property, a recent Justice Department release announced. From 2010 to 2013, 48-year-old Venita Godfrey-Scott directed her employees to use materials and supplies intended for VA medical center upkeep on her own house. These taxpayer-funded home improvement projects included “a deck in her backyard, carpet installation, and various kitchen, bathroom and basement improvements.” She also instructed employees to buy other necessary materials with her government-issued credit card, and had them work on these projects during normal work hours, when they were being paid by the VA.

In potential violation of law, all Obamacare

All of the health plans offered by Obamacare exchanges in five states include coverage for abortions in a potential violation of the law that says at least two plans must be available to consumers who don’t want any association with the controversial procedure, according to a government audit released late Monday. Altogether, more than 1,000 Obamacare plans offer abortion coverage in 28 states that don’t prohibit it, the Government Accountability Office said, including 95 percent of the plans in California and all of the plans in Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii and New Jersey.

I was also a Holocaust refugee and I’m extremely concerned that Jews don’t do to another people what was done to them,” said the activist. “I think that’s fair,” Senator Warren responded. “You recently said that you believe that Israel has the right to self-defense," the activist continued.

Controversial DHS Adviser Let Go

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual’s privileges at DHS. Mohamed Elibiary was until last week a senior member of DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). After years of controversy about his status at DHS, Elibiary announced his final day with the department on Twitter earlier this month and said he would remain close to the agency. Media outlets have raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his departure, speculating that his

After each of Al Gore’s prior 24 Hours of Reality broadcasts, climate experts have publicly corrected his many basic science errors. But he pays no attention whatsoever, committing the same blunders year after year. As a consequence, the former vice president’s initiative encourages the continuation of one of the greatest tragedies of all time. Leading up to the fourth annual Climate Reality marathon starting at noon EDT on Tuesday, Gore is promoting Climate-101, a website dedicated to the science of the issue as he understands it. Like his global warming presentations, Climate-101 is riddled with fundamental mistakes. Especially irksome to anyone

Rick Perry’s immigration record: A hard
line at the border, a softer touch in Austin
Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/15/2014 2:37:34 PM     Post Reply
Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ongoing deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops along the Rio Grande may be helpful in his second try for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. The move also continues a distinctively Texan balancing act on immigration that Perry has been maintaining for well over a decade. The question is whether Perry represents the future of his party on immigration — or whether his nuanced positions on the issue will again become a liability in national politics. “It takes a very skilled politician to come across as tough on border security while, at the same time, not

With approval ratings for Congress falling somewhere below used-car salesmen and three-card monty dealers, it’s not often one will see an incumbent underperforming their individual approval rating. Yet that’s just what Jeanne Shaheen is doing in her Senate re-election bid in New Hampshire. According to a new CNN poll of likely voters, Scott Brown has pulled into a 48-all tie with Shaheen, even though she has a majority favorable rating from the same pool of voters. The difference seems to be “presidential drag”: Scott Brown, the former senator from Massachusetts who moved to New Hampshire to run in a more

It was the time of unraveling. Long afterward, in the ruins, people asked: How could it happen? It was a time of beheadings. With a left-handed sawing motion, against a desert backdrop, in bright sunlight, a Muslim with a British accent cut off the heads of two American journalists and a British aid worker. The jihadi seemed comfortable in his work, unhurried. His victims were broken. Terror is theater. Burning skyscrapers, severed heads: The terrorist takes movie images of unbearable lightness and gives them weight enough to embed themselves in the psyche. It was a time of aggression.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland).

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

Department of Justice is launching a new program today in partnership with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center that will train "community leaders" like teachers and social workers to monitor their communities for signs of radicalization. (snip) In his announcement of the initiative, Attorney General Eric Holder described the program as a way to "be both innovative and aggressive in countering violent extremism and combating those who would sow intolerance, division, and hate" in the homeland. He labeled it an expansion of existent efforts to "to identify threats before they emerge, to disrupt

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t
