Democrats Are Playing Checkers While
Trump Is Playing Chess

New York Times, by Thomas B. Edsall

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 10/12/2017 9:03:51 AM

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.

About That Golden Globes Fiasco
National Review, by Kyle Smith    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/9/2018 8:51:53     Post Reply
On Golden Globes night, Hollywood preened in front of its black mirror as usual, but the degree to which it was blind to what was obvious to all observers was stranger than ever. It was like that time the pear-shaped Homer Simpson looked at his reflection and saw a torso rippling with musculature. What was the most crystalline moment of self-unawareness? Was it when Seth Meyers, a white guy like almost every Globes host before him, set up the first two introducers on the NBC broadcast by saying, “Please don’t be two white guys, please don’t be two white guys”?

Oprah Winfrey gave a tear-jerkingly Obamaesque woke speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday and is "actively thinking" about running for president in 2020. More than a handful of people who are not 60-something O magazine subscribers are actually excited about this. Here is a real-life Democratic congresswoman:(Snip)Sure, you might think, the prospect of an Oprah candidacy raises certain obvious problems. The daytime talk show pioneer and occasional film producer has no political or governing experience. Her accumulated pronouncements on political subjects over the course of some four decades in public life add up to a kind of vague

Trump Drives Another Nail
Into Obamacare’s Coffin
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/8/2018 5:45:38     Post Reply
During the 2016 primary season, Donald Trump pledged to facilitate lower health insurance premiums by permitting coverage to be sold across state lines. Oddly, considering that conservatives have long advocated this as a way of augmenting market competition among insurers, the proposal was ridiculed by his opponents for the Republican presidential nomination. During one debate Marco Rubio actually mimicked Trump’s physical gestures, mocked his references to “lines around the states,” and snidely added, “whatever that means.” Friday, the Trump administration demonstrated what that means by issuing a new regulation allowing association health plans (AHPs) to offer coverage across state lines.

Collusion has become the Democrats’ Benghazi

Collusion has become the Democrats’ Benghazi. Just as Hillary Clinton and her aides told some lies but weren’t ultimately to blame in the Benghazi tragedy, President Trump and his campaign did not collude with the Russians. Too bad for the Democrats that they can’t learn from how Republicans mishandled and overplayed the Benghazi affair. In the same way Benghazi became an obsession for many in the GOP, the idea of collusion between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin is now baked into the Democratic psyche. No matter what special counsel Robert S. Mueller III finds, Democrats and their allies in

Get Ready for Economic Liftoff

The supposedly smart people said Donald Trump would destroy the U.S. economy if he were elected president. They were wrong. On Thursday, the Dow broke 25,000 for the first time in its history – a meaningful expression of investor confidence in the future. Trump´s policies of deregulation, which have been moving ahead at full steam even before the tax cut bill passed just before Christmas, have helped push the stock market up by a third which, economist Arthur Laffer estimates, works about to about a $6 trillion increase in the nation´s net wealth. That may not be historic – there may be

Manufacturers Intend to Deliver
on Tax Reform´s Promise
Real Clear Politics, by Jay Timmons    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/5/2018 9:27:59     Post Reply
President Trump and Congress promised to pass tax reform by year’s end, and they delivered. Now manufacturers will deliver as well. With our new and internationally competitive tax code, manufacturers will hire more workers, create more well-paying jobs, invest in our communities and put more money in the pockets of manufacturing workers. The driving purpose behind tax reform was to create more opportunities for more Americans and to benefit manufacturing workers and their families directly. President Trump called tax reform “rocket fuel” for the economy, and manufacturers strongly agreed. We’ve been given the fuel. Now we will put it to work.

The Great Experiment
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/5/2018 9:23:33     Post Reply
Most new administrations do not really completely overturn their predecessors’ policies to enact often-promised ideologically driven change. The 18-year span of Harry Truman to Dwight Eisenhower to John F. Kennedy was mostly a continuum from center-left to center-right, back to center-left. Kennedy was probably as hawkish and as much of a tax cutter as was Eisenhower. The seven years of Jerry Ford to Jimmy Carter were a similar transition — or even the twelve years of George H. W. Bush to Bill Clinton. The deck chairs changed, but the ship sailed in mostly the same manner to mostly the same

Trump Is Right About the Obamacare
Insurance Mandate
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

Obamacare advocates have insisted since 2010 that the individual mandate was the “linchpin” of health care reform. That was the primary argument used by the government lawyers who defended it before the Supreme Court in 2012, and it remained the party line until last month. As recently as December 18, Erwin Chemerinsky of the UC Berkeley School of Law wrote, “It always has been understood… that the individual mandate was the linchpin of the statute.” Then, while celebrating the legislation that eliminated it, President Trump averred, “We essentially repealed Obamacare because we got rid of the individual

Taking Trump Seriously

Trying to take Trump seriously, Michael’s Barone’s column in the Washington Examiner on Thursday, is significant for at least two reasons. One is that anything Barone writes is certain to be thoughtful, authoritatively researched, and grounded in reality. His columns, like his work in general, are not fired mainly by ideology but by a desire to understand. What Cardinal Newman said of Aristotle could, mutatis mutandis, be said of Barone: about most things, to think like him is to think correctly. But there is another sense in which this particular column is significant. Given Barone’s stature as a conservative but non-ideological

   

 



 
Don’t Take the Wrong Lessons
from NYC’s Murder Drop
National Review, by Heather MacDonald    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 12/30/2017 10:45:53     Post Reply
Cop critics who assiduously ignored the 20 percent increase in the national homicide rate over the previous two years have suddenly become enthusiastic purveyors of crime statistics. Fueling their newfound interest in crime data is the announcement that the New York City homicide rate is at a near-60-year low. That homicide drop shows that proactive policing is irrelevant to crime levels, say these policing skeptics. The New York Police Department’s reported-stop activity plummeted earlier in this decade as a result of a groundless trilogy of racial-profiling lawsuits against the department. Yet crime in New York ultimately continued its downward trajectory.

Liberal Humiliation: Trump vs. Obama on Iran

Back in those pre-9/11 days when I identified as a liberal, the one thing I was sure drew all my then cohort together was opposition to fascism, whether secular or religious. Boy, was I wrong and never was that more clear than in 2009 when the Green Movement demonstrators were marching through the streets of Tehran and other Iranian cities, demanding freedom from the mullahs.

There is something purposely inaccurate about how some in certain media circles are attempting to frame the “battle royale” ongoing between the president of the United States and the world’s premier law enforcement agency — the FBI. Let’s be clear. Donald Trump’s considerable ego is at war with those who dare to imply the Russians helped him defeat Hillary Clinton in November of 2016. This has led him to square off against the FBI director he fired this past May, James B. Comey, Jr., who oversaw the early stages of the Russia collusion investigation. Comey’s relief in place thrust Deputy Director Andrew

Democratic California Sen.

Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.” “The one regret I have is that I

President Donald Trump, frustrated with America´s continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress Thursday in vulgar terms why the United States had to shoulder such a burden. ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post. Trump was reportedly speaking about Haitians and citizens of various African nations. Instead, he said, the U.S. should seek to assimilate people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with a day earlier. Unlike Haiti

The Yale University psychology professor who called President Trump “mentally impaired” appears to lack a valid license to practice psychiatry in her home state of Connecticut. The professor, Bandy Lee, made the headlines over the past few days when she made a diagnosis of the president as suffering from a “mental impairment” that would disqualify him from the highest office in the land. Following Lee’s comments, the American Psychiatric Association released a statement on Tuesday warning members of its profession to refrain from making public diagnoses of public figures like Trump without a proper medical exam. “We at the APA call for an
