Who are the Democrats?
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 4/20/2017 8:07:35 AM

The results from Georgia’s 6th are in, let the overanalyzing begin. First, just to state the obvious, the Democrats fell short of their goal. They tried to pitch the special election as a referendum on President Trump, but that message failed. It seems strange, but today’s liberals invested a huge amount of money, media attention, and hopes and dreams in a 30-year-old straight, white Southern male. I think it points to the bewilderment within the Democratic Party. Looking at the mixed bag of confusing images and messages that have come from the left of late, it’s easy to ask: Who are

Who are the Democrats?

The assassins of the American dream.

Always have been, always will be.

I´m less concerned with who the democrat politicians are, or analyzing the countless contradictions that arise in any attempt to determine what exactly they stand for.

I´m more interested in the people, many smart caring people who have been convinced they are doing the right thing by supporting opposition to the constitutional foundation of the country that allowed them to prosper. The country that stopped an attempt to subjugate the entire world at an extraordinary cost. The country that elevated the state of the common people higher than anywhere else on earth now or ever.

There will always be the power hungry exploiters and that is precisely what our founders understood so well and gave us the most powerful means in human history to guard against.

So who are the democrats; those exploiters who exist by convincing people to act against their own self interests. There is an underlying consistency in that, but the means vary wildly.

The Demonrats are destroyers. They chose Bari to be the "enemy within", or chance agent if you will, creating division and chaos, using the resulting violence to destroy America, and then brag about their success as they bitterly cling to their dream of a Marxist Communist Utopia.

They are still headed in that direction with crazy Bernie Sanders, the Socialist, who lives like one of the Rich and Famous with his 3, or is it 4 homes, and his willingness to pay only 15% of his ill-gotten gains in taxes, all with the support of a crooked press and propagandized next generation of voters.

What can one say, except for the famous paraphrased words, "I hope they fail".

According to the local VA news, this article is all wrong. The Dims unseated an incumbent Republican Clerk of the Court (snort!) in Northern Virginia. This is going to be YUUGE for the upcoming Governor´s race.

To be clear: VA has a Dim governor, 2 Dim Senators, and voted for Hillary. KEEPING what they already have is a massive repudiation of the President.

Really?

I thought Ossoff looked like one of Assad´s sons. Or maybe his younger brother.

Congrats on the Democrats getting 48% of the vote in GA06. I hope that the GOP candidates have quickly endorsed the GOP candidate and work hard to get 55-60% in the June election.

Any Republican is wise to always run their "can´t lose" campaign thinking they are 5 points behind. Sadly, many don´t.

Real Americans don´t want any more MS13 gangbanger killers or Islamist terrorists in our country. We want them OUT.

Who are the Democrats? They are the people letting MS13 and Islamist terrorists into our country.

Until they understand this, they will be in the wilderness.

Same Old “New” Democrats
City Journal, by Steven Malanga    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/27/2017 9:02:00     Post Reply
Seizing the opportunity created by a stumbling president whose White House seems incapable of fulfilling his biggest campaign promises, Democrats counterattacked this week, touting a new slogan and policies as they look ahead to the 2018 midterm elections. The slogan—“A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages”—was quickly derided by Twitter wags as reminiscent of Papa John’s Pizza marketing (“Better ingredients, better pizza”). And the policies rolled out a day later were retreads of Hillary Clinton’s policy positions in her failed presidential campaign. It’s tempting to speculate, given this uninspired effort, that Democrats are coasting on the assumption that

These Six Senators Lied
About Obamacare Repeal
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/26/2017 7:43:50     Post Reply
The following Republican Senators demonstrated this afternoon that they are liars and frauds: Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Dean Heller (Nev.), John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Rob Portman (Ohio). (snip) These mountebanks, all of whom voted for “clean repeal” when Obama’s inevitable veto made it safe and politically expedient to do so, voted against a virtually identical bill today — knowing full well that President Trump would sign it. In other words, they consciously betrayed their constituents, their party, and the nation as a whole.

The 9 Lives of Reince Priebus
US News and World Report, by David Catanese    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/26/2017 8:27:33     Post Reply
The demise of Reince Priebus inside Donald Trump´s White House has been predicted almost from the very beginning, and recast as many times as a cat´s number of lives. Since the inauguration, the 45-year-old Wisconsinite has been an easy punching bag, a convenient scapegoat and a target of unflattering leaks. Fueled by pragmatic ambition and a thick skin, the battered chief of staff has endured. But with the resignation of his closest White House ally, press secretary Sean Spicer, rivals of Priebus in contact with the president believe his odds for survival have now depreciated substantially, and say he may not survive

GOP Lawmakers´ Tricky Tango With Trump
Real Clear Politics, by Caitlin Huey-Burns    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/26/2017 8:00:50     Post Reply
The complicated relationship between Donald Trump and congressional Republicans could be summed up in a day´s work. Lawmakers spent Tuesday morning defending former colleague and Attorney General Jeff Sessions against attacks from the president, who, in considering whether to fire the head of his own Justice Department, demonstrated how quickly he could turn on an ally. That afternoon, Senate Republicans just barely scraped together the support to proceed on a measure to unravel Obamacare, a campaign promise they made and a priority of a White House in desperate need of a legislative victory. And in the early evening, House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in

Putting aside for a moment the state of ruin in the Trump White House, I’m seeing nothing but chaos coming from Democrats. Granted, it takes a while to recover from a disaster, and it is especially discouraging when the disaster is of your own making, like burning down the house because you left something unattended on the stove. But no matter the circumstances, you pick yourself up and move on, maybe even make some improvements. But here it is, months after the election, halfway through 2017 with 2018 breathing down their necks, and Democrats have yet to look in the mirror, which

   

 

  


 
Unstable: Obamacare bailout in NH
New Hampshire Union Leader, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/24/2017 8:09:05     Post Reply
It´s not a tax. It´s not a fee. It´s an "assessment." The New Hampshire Department of Insurance wants to charge health insurance companies a $36.8 million assessment to fund a reinsurance pool in order to prop up the state´s failing health care exchange. "To call it a tax is misstating what it really is," argues Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny. Sure. His plan is to use the "don´t-call-it-a-tax" revenue, along with $8.2 million from the bottomless federal treasury, to "stabilize" the individual insurance market. He wants to increase costs on the part of the health insurance marketplace that actually works in order to subsidize

Will the Senate Parliamentarian
Try to Save Obamacare?
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/24/2017 6:15:47     Post Reply
Over the weekend, countless media outlets gleefully reported that the Senate parliamentarian had all but killed the Republican effort to dismantle Obamacare. These reports claimed, based on a memo written by Democrat staffers, that she had declared several sections of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) in violation of reconciliation rules under which the GOP hopes to pass the legislation. This created consternation among pro-life conservatives. One of the endangered provisions defunds Planned Parenthood, yet the same parliamentarian approved the same provision for a 2015 budget reconciliation bill that Congress passed. That bill was vetoed by then President Obama, of

America is back with the
first 6 months of Trump
The Hill, by Sebastian Gorka    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/21/2017 8:26:17     Post Reply
Donald Trump won the presidential election against Hillary Clinton with a very simple message: I will fix the economy, build the wall and destroy ISIS. In this, he channeled the simplicity of Ronald Reagan´s own election platform. Then-Gov. Reagan promised to restore Americans’ faith in our nation, to fix the economic “malaise” of the Carter years and to defeat the Soviet Union once and for all. For the Trump campaign, and now the Trump administration, our approach is summarized under the “Make America Great Again” motto, or #MAGA. However, winning an election is not the same as governing or implementing a policy agenda

Trump ´Surprised´ by Senate GOP
Revolt on Health Bill

President Trump sounded perplexed in the wake of the Senate GOP’s health care debacle this week, and unclear about what exactly his divided party should do next. There was a time when he promised supporters that ridding the country of President Obama’s signature legislative creation would be “so easy.” But on Tuesday, that certainty gave way to indecision, finger pointing and ample evidence that Trump is perceived, including by Republicans in Washington, as so out of his legislative depth as to be a liability. “It is a terrible environment on so many levels when policy and political types begin all strategic-assumption conversations

Impeachment talk in the nation´s capital rose from a murmur to a dull roar in mid-May, thanks to a week jam-packed with Nixonesque "White House horrors." On Tuesday, May 9, President Donald Trump summarily fired FBI director James Comey; on Thursday, Trump admitted the FBI investigation into "this Russia thing"—attempts to answer questions about his campaign´s links with Moscow—was a key reason for the firing; Friday found Trump warning Comey he´d "better hope that there are no ´tapes´ of our conversations"; and the following Tuesday The New York Times reported the existence of a Comey memo on Trump´s efforts to

John McCain’s blood clot, which caused Republican Senate leadership to suspend formal consideration of Obamacare replacement, isn’t by far the Grand Old Party’s gravest malady. Nothing in the diagnostic manual of political afflictions compares with the near-complete disappearance of the party’s backbone. If it’s not one thing causing GOP senators and governors to equivocate on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, it’s something else: Medicaid expansion vs. Medicaid contraction; cheaper vs. costlier insurance policies; eligibility for coverage of pre-existing conditions; contraception coverage; etc. Meanwhile a united Democratic Senate bloc watches with ill-disguised amusement. This is how you get things done in an

The Poltroon Party Gets a Reprieve
on Obamacare Repeal

Mitch McConnell no doubt breathed a sigh of relief when John McCain’s surgery gave him an excuse to postpone a vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). Now that Senators Rand Paul and Susan Collins have made it abundantly clear that no concession or reasonable argument will persuade them to do the right thing on Obamacare, every remaining GOP Senator has to support BCRA in order to get the bill passed. And it was by no means certain that McConnell had enough votes to accomplish that even with McCain present. Why? The GOP has become the party of poltroons.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again.

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday.

The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.
