Democrats Are Playing Checkers While

New York Times, by Thomas B. Edsall

For Democrats, the warning shots are coming thick and fast. “More than half of Americans don’t think Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, yet he has a clear path to winning reelection,” Doug Sosnik, who served as President Bill Clinton’s political director, wrote in the Washington Post last week. “Are Democrats Headed for a McGovern Redux?” Alan Greenblatt asked in Politico on Oct. 9. On the same day, a New York Magazine headline declared: “No One Should Rule Out a Trump Re-election in 2020.” What can Democrats do? A Pew Research Center survey released earlier this month documented the growth of

Don´t wste your time on this one. Starts off explaining that more middle class shites are identifying with race and thus rebublicans since more than half now vote rebublican. But not a word about race being an issue since blacks vote for and have for generations Democrats 95% of the time. So a majority of whites voting rebublican is racist while almost every black that votes in this country for demcrats has nothing to do with race. Usual race baiting Slime article.

Author quotes Cornell Belcher´s (Omama-ite) assertion that MAGA is about race...which author admits misses most of the argument and doesn´t work anymore.

Dems are too obsessed with Identity Politics to win back the working class. Based on the article some of them realize that, but it´s like a crackhead giving up drugs - ain´t going to happen.

I stopped reading when the jist is that whites are becoming republicans because they are racist and anti-immigrant.

The truth is that whites are more likely to become republican as a consequence of constantly being called racist, biggotted sexist homophobes because everything that they say and do is a micro-aggression, a demonstration of white privledge, they dont like 30 year old men using the little girls room and they donr believe that taco Tuesday is cultural appropriation.

Liberals dont get that the constant badgering, lecturing and name calling is back firing.

These days I´ll, for the sake of argument concede that Im a racist, biggotted sexist if the lib will kindly explain how my facts are incorrect.

They´re really desperate to make everything about race. If you want to know what Trump is about and what the Tea Party is about go back and listen to Rick Santelli´s rant from 2009. He said Washington DC is punishing good behavior and rewarding bad behavior.

Whether you´re talking about bank bailouts or Harvey Weinstein or illegal aliens or Black Lives Matter or Antifa, or student loans, it´s always the same. Liberals are always punishing honest, hard-working, frugal, law-abiding people and rewarding lazy, dishonest, spendthrifts and criminals.

The problem the dems face is that the hard Left wing of their party is camped out to the left of their median dem. This is where Bernie dragged the party and with Hillary´s embarrassing loss, where the party is drifting.

Further, neatly breaking the Country into apparently equal blocks of dems and Republicans makes it seem like the people are split. But that´s not correct. Less people are identifying dem and more Independent or Republican. So the balance is NOT even and if there is a center point of the Country, it has shifted right, leaving the loudest liberal voices in a Leftern desert away from most of the Country.

As others have noted, the bias of the article is stunning. I have no problems with Blacks just because they are Black. If they think they are entitled to free stuff and a life without working, they are nuts. They are also not entitled to behave as thugs.

I also have no problem with immigrants here LEGALLY. ILLEGAL immigrants should be blocked from entry. Those here should be reviewed and those committing crimes here should be booted out. Others MIGHT be considered for citizenship with strict requirements. That offer does NOT apply to others coming here in the future.

I agree with the Title, dems are playing stupid games.

Trump vs. Hitler: Let’s Run the Numbers.

I heard something unusual when I logged on to the New York Times this morning. It seemed to me a dire, authoritative, even apocalyptic sound. It was as if a gigantic clap of thunder had been produced by an immense boot of truth. Allow me to explain. On my screen appeared a think piece comparing Adolf Hitler with Donald Trump. “Trump Isn’t Hitler. But the Lying . . . ,” by op-ed columnist Charles Blow, advances a breathtaking claim that has never, to my knowledge, appeared in any media outlet before: That though Trump isn’t Hitler, he’s actually pretty close,

Donald Trump is criticized, often justly, for misstatements of facts and failure to understand the details of public policy. But in two of his most recent controversial actions, he has taken stands upholding the rule of law and undoing the lawless behavior of his most recent predecessor. The question now is whether the author of "The Art of the Deal" -- and congressional Republicans and Democrats -- can maneuver and compromise on these issues in ways that produce sensible public policy. The first action in question was Trump´s Sept. 5 announcement that he would withdraw Barack Obama´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

At last check, 47 women have now said they were sexually harassed and/or assaulted by the producer Harvey Weinstein. That number is certain to grow. There’s no way a psychopath with a 30-year history of meeting with young women alone in hotel rooms clad only in a bathrobe only had 1.566 such assignations per annum. These astounding numbers do not suggest, as many now are, that Weinstein is a representative figure of American maleness in our time. It’s precisely the opposite: His is a story of demonic excess that is so horrifying because it is so exceptional. In that sense, it tracks

Just as Republicans rallied around President Trump to save their Supreme Court majority and prevent a Hillary Clinton presidency, they must now rally around proposed tax reform to save their congressional majority and prevent a Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Speakership. With nothing to run on following their health-care reform failures, Republicans trail Democrats by 9 percentage points in current 2018 election polling. The Senate’s likely passage this week of a federal budget, which would allow tax reform to proceed under budget reconciliation, indicates it’s time for the Republican Party to put aside differences to get the 51 Senate votes necessary for

   

 

  


 
The Method to Trump’s ‘Madness’

Posted By: garnet- 10/17/2017 8:36:40     Post Reply
The Democratic Party, as it did after Hubert Humphrey’s close loss in 1968, seems still to be misdiagnosing its 2016 defeat. Democrats see too little identity politics rather than too much as their trouble, and thus are redoubling on what has been slowly shrinking the party into coastal enclaves. Promoting Black Lives Matter and open borders, promising free tuition and tax hikes, opposing fracking and pipeline construction, pushing single-payer health care and an ever-expanding transgender agenda as well as abortion—these are not majority positions. Neither will embracing Hollywood, the media, or the NFL protests win over voters. Thinking (or hoping) that President

Dems Sue Trump for Abiding
by Obamacare on Subsidies
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 10/16/2017 6:38:14     Post Reply
Beltway Democrats never tire of telling us that Obamacare is “the law of the land.” It appears, however, that their state level accomplices failed to get the news. One day after the White House announced that cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers would stop, Democrat attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit for the purpose of forcing the Trump administration to pay the subsidies. A federal court has ruled these CSR payments unconstitutional, and the U.S. Attorney General has concluded that they violate the statute itself. Thus, Trump is merely upholding the law.

The cultural import of the Harvey Weinstein revelations is that now, after the scourge of sexual predation has been exposed in various sectors of society — clergy, business, military, hockey, football, politics — it has finally touched a sector deeply corrupt and most influential, that of celebrity entertainment. It’s not quite accurate to speak of the The New York Times reportage on Harvey Weinstein’s predatory sexual behaviour as “revealing.” Rather, it confirmed what the most influential people in the Hollywood-New York movie and publishing world knew for a long time. The recent reporting just let us ordinary people in on the

A month ago, liberals were celebrating a sudden deal on “Dreamers” that President Trump made with congressional Democrats. Chuck Schumer, the senate minority leader, was downright giddy when a hot mic later caught him gloating that Trump “likes me.” Now the wedding is off, the bromance kaput, and a new deal will have to be made. Blame it on the wall. Trump’s bid for bipartisanship was the talk of Washington, especially after he confirmed the outlines himself, including the fact that funding for his signature wall on the border with Mexico would “come later.” But somewhere along the line, the man who

Viewers of Saturday Night Live noticed something missing this weekend. NBC´s late night sketch show sets out to skewer the cultural zeitgeist. And what showbiz story captured the cultural zeitgeist this week better than the tale of Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood titan who has (finally) been accused in print of decades of sexual harassment?SNL´s executive producer Lorne Michaels explained that the show had not made any jokes at Weinstein´s expense this week because Weinstein´s influence is "a New York thing."

Trump Drains Obamacare’s Regulatory Swamp
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 10/9/2017 5:52:03     Post Reply
Having provoked much progressive sputtering and head spinning last Friday by issuing new regulations weakening the notorious HHS contraception mandate, President Trump is poised to sign an executive order that will further dry up Obamacare’s regulatory morass. The Wall Street Journalreports that the order will expand enrollee options restricted by the Obama administration — allowing coverage to be purchased through association health plans, encouraging the sale of short-term medical insurance, and permitting pretax funds from health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) to be used for premiums on health plans. The impending order has already drawn satisfying charges of “sabotage” from Obamacare apologists.

A few notes on the killings in Las Vegas, the disgusting, evil, horrible murders in Las Vegas. First of all, I keep reading that somehow it’s unique in human history that men gather innocent human beings together, pen them up, and then slaughter them in large numbers. The tragic fact of human nature is that mass killings of totally innocent human beings are not at all unusual. Genghis Khan swept across Europe and Asia killing by the hundreds of thousands when it had to be done by hand and not by machines. His victims were as innocent as could be. In World War

Former President George W.

Hillary Clinton admits she “really tried to get out of going” to President Trump’s inauguration. The former first lady and failed Democratic presidential nominee said on BBC One’s “The Graham Norton Show” that she asked the remaining former presidents if they were going to the Jan. 20 inauguration in an effort to justify not showing up herself. “I really tried to get out of going,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We thought ‘OK, maybe others aren’t going.’” She explained that it’s tradition for former presidents and first ladies to attend a presidential inauguration, regardless of party, to show “support” and “continuity of

Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison. It was said the Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian because of election campaign conflicts but is it really because he thought it

New York — An upcoming memoir from Sen. John McCain has taken on new meaning since he first decided to write it. “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday. The publisher quietly signed up the book in February, without any formal announcement. In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.” McCain, 81, was re-elected to a sixth term in the Senate in 2016. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him,

A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie
