Can Dems Do ANYTHING In 2018?

To listen to the snowflake media rail against the GOP for failing to do anything so far in Congress (and rightfully so, by the way!), you would have to conclude that coming up next fall, the Democrats are poised to take over both the House and the Senate. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see that happen, especially after seven years of “repeal Obamacare!” followed by absolutely nothing when they finally get the chance to follow through with their 61 House votes to do so, and their countless campaign promises.

But there is a darker picture for the Democrats. It’s a problem the GOP doesn’t have right now. I’m not saying the Republicans don’t have problems, they have scores of them. But the Democrats have the big one…they are broke.

Since Tom Perez was installed as DNC chair after Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ departure last year after a terrible convention that proved to be nothing more than a fix for Hillary Clinton to get the nomination, the DNC has amassed over $3,000,000 of debt and they don’t seem to have the means to pay it back. Oh, they can if they send out enough emails and “We Need You NOW!” letters to their base, I’m sure they can raise it. But the problem is, once again, leadership. Tom Perez, while a fire brand, and someone that is proving he’s not afraid to mix it up with the Republicans, he’s no leader. He has proven that while he can swear and argue with the best of them, he can’t raise money, he can’t win special elections, he’s throwing tons of cash at the wrong things, and he’s doing it in a year that he should be saving his cash because he could actually take back Congress next year.

And therein lies the Democrats conundrum. They are in a position politically to take advantage of Republican snafus and mistakes, and yet, they don’t have the money to do it. So when the guy down the street that is running for a House seat against a Republican that’s been there forever but voted against the healthcare bill in the House or the Senate candidate that is going up against a Republican incumbent that voted against the “Better Health Care” bill (or would had they actually voted on it), tries to raise the capital to run for office, he’s going to be stonewalled. The DNC isn’t going to have the bucks to back them.

It’s Perez’ fault because he decided in the five special elections, all but one held in Republican states won big by Donald Trump, he threw away a hundred million dollars trying to win the seats and turn the tide of last November’s Republican sweep. It didn’t work. And now, he’s out big bucks with a less than a year and a half to go before his biggest election as chair. What an idiot! No long range planning for this guy, obviously.

May, 2017 was the worst month of fundraising for the Democrats since the Iraq War back in 2003. They ended up that month $1.9 million in debt. The Republicans meanwhile, had a banner month, raising $13.4 million. That doesn’t sound like a party that’s on the brink of collapse to me. Everybody knows the oil of the political engine is money. And when you take money from George Soros, JB Pritzker, Tom Steyer, and James Simons, all of whom poured millions into the DNC last year, out of the picture, you’re really in a world of hurt. In fact, Soros, who donated millions himself to the DNC and to Hillary Clinton has only given $33,000 so far this year.

Can the Dems recover? Sure. But I doubt they will until they actually find leaders. And I’m talking NEW leaders that have the leadership and vision skill set that obviously Perez doesn’t have.

Ready For….Maxine???

Maxine Waters

I was as surprised as you were. Maxine Waters is running for president? Really? Let’s examine this in detail, shall we?

First of all, Maxine Waters is one of the dumbest members of congress that exists. Yes, she’s the ranking Democrat member of the House Financial Services Committee. That sounds impressive until you understand that you don’t have to know squat to be on that committee. You are assigned by your party’s leadership. And you don’t have to know squat to be the ranking member…just be there longer than any other person from your party.

Second, she’s 78 years old. And today, she’s going to be visiting New Hampshire and attending a picnic so she can hobnob with Democrats from the state. Third, she’s about as anti-Trump as you can get. If you thought the last presidential election stooped to new lows, wait until she becomes the Dems’ nominee! And that will, I assure you, hand Donald J. Trump a re-election in a landslide. This woman is only electable in her district in California, maybe in New York City and Massachusetts. Other than that, she’s pretty much toxic everywhere else in the country.

So, why is Maxine Waters thinking of running for president? I personally think it’s because she saw Trump win, and decided that because she hates him so much, she feels if he could get elected, I could get elected. So, in that addled state of mind, she has decided to throw herself into the fray. Frankly, I’m not sure she has the energy for it. She would become the oldest person ever elected president if she were to make it through the gauntlet, and as we have seen with Hillary this past year, a campaign has a way of really taxing a candidate to the point of passing out. It might just kill Maxine.

This is one reason why the Democrats are in the state they’re in. They have people that should be retiring thinking about running for president. They need new leadership. They need new blood. They need to find a way to get back the blue collar white voters that they lost to Donald Trump last November. Maxine Waters isn’t going to be able to do that. She may be passionate about her beliefs, and I give her credit for that, but when it comes to reality, she’s got as much chance of winning the White House as I do.

And so, it has begun. Roughly seven months into Trump’s reign as president, the Dems are already lining up to try and unseat him. And of course, everyone knew that would happen, right? I mean, no one is surprised. The only surprise should be that it wasn’t Elizabeth Warren, or Cory Booker or even that upstart Senator from Cali, Kamala Harris. One would have thought any of them would be considering a jaunt down Pennsylvania Avenue first.
The more things change…the more things stay the same.

Of course, yesterday, Mad Maxine decided to let the world know that after 48 hours of deriding her decision to visit New Hampshire, she was “just joking” about a presidential run. Yeah, right. Either that or she realized she’d be laughed out of existence. Nice try, Maxy Baby!

Letting Trump Be Trump

There has been this HUGE brouhaha over Donald Trump tweeting about Mika and Joe on CNN, and whether he should do it; whether its presidential; whether she had a facelift; whether he needs to do something else with his time.

Well, I’ll wade into the argument today. First and foremost, does Trump have a right to tweet? Yes, absolutely. Just because you are president doesn’t mean you give up your first amendment rights to freedom of speech, and that includes HOW you speak, not just what you say. So, on that accord, he has every right to go around the mainstream media, who screw up his message anyway, and use something like Twitter to get his message direct to the public. It’s no different than Teddy Roosevelt using the “bully pulpit”, because the internet wasn’t around at the turn of the 20th century.

Second, was Trump right in attacking these two talking head buffoons on Twitter? That’s an entirely separate matter and the answer is no. I do agree with the pundits that he needs to be more “presidential” (whatever that is), and let this crap slide off his back. He is above all of this stuff, or at least should be. That is the gist of it. He needs to realize that these idiot snowflakes are pissed as hell that he beat their beloved criminal…er…candidate, Hillary Clinton, and that they will always feel he “stole” the election. Nothing in the world is going to change that, and nothing is going to stop them from trying to get him out of office. Small tasks for small minds. The people that waste their time and energy with this “resistance” movement need to realize that is exactly what they are doing…wasting their time. Live your damn lives, and don’t worry about Trump. If that’s the most important thing in your life, you need to get outside more often. And that goes for Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Schumer, and Maxine Waters as well. Stop trying to figure out HOW to get him out of office, and do your damn jobs!

Speaking of doing your damn jobs, I would also like to say that the selection of message topics in Trumps tweets are totally off base. Frankly, I don’t care who he likes or doesn’t like. It doesn’t matter to me, and it shouldn’t matter to anyone else either. I would MUCH prefer that he spend his precious tweeting time telling Americans why the Senate needs to pass the repeal of Obamacare. I would MUCH rather that he spend time on the campaign trail pushing to get this monstrosity of an abortion out of our lives before it crashes and burns and then you’ve got a HUGE mess on your hands that you know the Democrat snowflakes out there won’t take the blame for…even though it’s their doing, and they own it. Spend your time, Donald, talking about REAL issues. Stop the fake news crap. CNN already has lost all of their credibility, and they know it. Oh, they try and hide it, but they know they’ve been caught and the polls I’ve seen shows the American people know it as well and don’t trust media any farther than they can throw them. So, let’s get tweeting about something more important than some over-paid, under-talented media hack’s facelift, ok?

And with that, I say…

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Sanders & Wife Facing Fraud Charges

Remember Jane Sanders? She’s the smiling wife of Bernie Sanders who stood by his side as the socialist turned Democrat wannabe tried to run for president against Hillary Clinton, who had already had the fix in on the nomination. Well, it appears that Jane isn’t smiling these days. She’s hoping she doesn’t go to jail.

Mrs. Sanders was the president of a little school called Burlington College back in the early 2010’s, and she applied for a bank loan of $10 million to purchase 33 acres of land so the college could expand. However, on the application, she over-stated the fundraising of the school, stating that they had raised $2.6 million in 2010, when in fact over a four year period between 2010 and 2014 they only raised a little more than $600,000. Oops. When you sign your name to something like that, it’s called fraud.

It was the fact that the school only raised $676,000 over four years that they went bankrupt in 2016… and Jane joined Bernie full time on the campaign trail with nothing better to do.

Well, both Bernie and Jane have now lawyered up, and are facing fraud charges. It’s kind of funny that both Democrats trying for the White House may end up (or at the very least SHOULD end up) in jail for fraud, isn’t it? And this gets to the heart of the matter.

I cannot recall a time in my life when the Dems were so bankrupt. Morally, ethically, physically, financially, they just seem to be leaderless, rudderless, floating adrift with no direction, no message, no morals. And that worries me a great deal. Democrats out of power, as we have seen in the past six months, are utterly out of control. They make wild accusations, they say and do almost anything to get back in power, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the truth as we are witnessing with all of the false accusations about “Russia and Trump”. The longer they are out of power, the more desperate they become to do anything, say anything, be anybody that will get them elected, and get them back to where they feel they have a natural right to be.

Now, I will state emphatically that is not ALL Democrats. I know quite a few that believe in the principles of the left, are fervent about it, but wouldn’t cross the line. And I really believe that MOST Dems are like that, just as most Republicans are like that. But the ones leading the party aren’t. They are the crazies that do the off-the-wall stuff like Hillary has done, or that Jane Sanders has done, or that this idiot that’s running the DNC now is doing. They just go crazy…I mean, listen to what Chuck Schumer says about the Republican effort to replace and repeal Obamacare. He and Nancy Pelosi are beside themselves, yet they won’t admit to anybody that Obamacare is bankrupt and is taking the country with it. Why not? Because it would hurt their chances of getting back in power. That is their religion, and that is the only thing that matters to them.

No, Jane and Bernie Sanders may be in trouble, but they will kick and scream loud and long enough, and pay a fine in the end without going to jail. It is after all, the Democrat way, isn’t it?

It’s GOT To Stop!

Yeah, lately I’ve been on sort of a rant about the media, and the left and their vitriolic rhetoric and hate speech. Today, we shift gears. Today we talk about Donald Trump. See, it’s not just the left’s fault. Oh, trust me, a LOT of it is, but it’s also the fault of some (not all) of those on the right. And Donald J. Trump heads that list.

This guy loves to tweet because he says it gives him direct access to the public without having to go through a very liberal, very biased media. That is certainly true. But the thing Trump doesn’t understand is that sometimes…no, a LOT of the time, he needs a filter. He needs to have someone read his tweets before he hits the “send” button. I know that’s the unadulterated way on how he feels, but it’s not the way a president should be talking. It’s partly because of that you get idiots like Pelosi and Schumer spouting off their brand of hate-speech, which granted is 100 times worse than what Trump is saying, truth or not.

Basically, if Washington is going to cure this country’s problem of division, you aren’t going to do it by being on “Team Scalise” as Pelosi said at the charity baseball game the other night. You’re only going to do it by coming together and stop the in-fighting. Now, that’s going to be toughest for the Dems because that is really their only weapon, at least until next election. Trump has to, in his own mind, fight the Russian investigation, the obstruction of justice investigation, the media that’s out to get him, and the left in order to get his message out. But there are better ways. Every other president has used the “Bully Pulpit” and gone directly to the American public with TV speeches. Trump could certainly do an Oval Office speech telling everyone that he is going to stop using Twitter and start being “normal”. That would be a big first step in this. And he needs to do it sooner rather than later.

The media isn’t going to change until they are forced to. The only thing they understand are ratings, and unless we all stop watching news channels and the networks, they are going to get wilder and wilder and push the envelope as Megyn Kelly has shown. That is the only thing they listen to. Stop watching and listening to them, and watch how they change.

But it’s got to start somewhere, and I think if Trump were to quit Twitter and say that he’s doing it because that’s HIS part in all of this, it would be a big first step. Then the pressure goes to the snowflakes to change their behavior, and if they don’t, you bring out the finger pointing every time they spew their hate. You point at them and call them snowflakes, and tell them what ugly people they are and you do it in front of the TV cameras. You go on the talk shows and tell the hosts how biased they are. They’ll get the message soon enough. And of course, what I said the other day about slapping a $10,000,000 fine on any cable channel or network or newspaper that is spewing fake news, and banning the reporter from ever working in the industry again, would be a good second step.

Dem’s Losses In “Special Trump Referendums” Sting…Show Truth

I don’t usually agree with those “news channel pundits” you see on the cable news network’s primarily because I think they suffer from “Beltway Haze”. They can’t see the REAL picture very well. But in fairness, I think they nailed the explanation of what was going to be a massive Democrat celebration yesterday. Instead, Dems turned the other cheek and started talking about everything except special elections.

After having dropped $50 million total on this election by both sides, Democrats were certain they could flip the seat Tom Price held in the Georgia 6th Congressional District. They had a Cali implant who didn’t even live in the district running against Karen Handel. She beat him after he and the Dems threw over $30 million at the race…and got nothing to show for it. Oh, they made it SOUND like it was no big deal… it was a GOP seat after all. But then why in the world if it wasn’t a big deal did they throw that type of money at it? The answer? They made it a referendum on Donald Trump…just like they had done in Kansas, Montana, and South Carolina. And in all, the Democrats lost all four “replacement special elections”. Those were elections that filled the seats of people Trump named to his cabinet.

So, what’s the big deal? Well, the Democrats are looking to take over the House of Representatives for one special reason in 2018. They want to impeach Donald Trump on anything they can. They know if they can flip the House, they can try to do it (though it’s doubtful they’d be able to win enough seats in the Senate to convict him). The Dems are making the same mistake that The Republicans made when they impeached Bill Clinton (on much more of an issue!).

Here’s the real problem. It isn’t about Trump or his election anymore, and the snowflakes running the left fail to see that. They keep saying they aren’t getting their message out, but that’s not what the problem is. After spending $30 million on ONE House race, if you can’t get your message out, you need to have your head examined. No, the snowflakes’ problem is they don’t HAVE a message. “Resist” is not a message voters are going to be motivated to vote for. Neither is hate, neither is rage. But these people are so hung up on losing an election they should have lost in the first place that they can’t see straight.

So, Democrats are 0-4 in special House elections this year. They have a couple more coming up. On August 15th in Utah, Jason Chaffetz, who is retiring from the House, will be holding a House election, and on the same day in Alabama, there will be a special election to replace Attorney General, Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat. I would hazard a guess that Dems will fight both of those as hard as they did with Karen Handel’s race, and they will lose a LOT more money in each case. Both Alabama and Utah are VERY red states and I doubt all the money in the world will make the difference there.

If I could give a word of advice to our snowflakes in the audience. Don’t spend money on races that you can’t win, just to try and show the world that nobody likes Donald Trump. It hasn’t worked in the four times you tried it, it won’t work in August. Of course, if you want to keep throwing money down the toilet, why not do yourself a favor. Instead of flushing, fish that money out and send it here to the desert. I could use a new Maserati!

Could The Shooting Actually Bring Congress Together?

Steve Scalise, the GOP Majority Whip in the House of Representatives was shot on Wednesday during a practice for the charity baseball game between the Republicans and the Democrats. The assailant was a 66 year old loser out of Belleville, Illinois named James Hodgkinson, who was fatally shot by members of the Capitol Police who were in attendance at the practice. Others were injured as well in the melee that occurred basically because Hodgkinson, who was a Bernie Sanders disciple, thought that Donald Trump and the Republicans need to be taken down.

I will say that possibly there is one good thing that seems to have come from this. After the shooting, both sides, Republican and Democrat seemed, for the moment at least, to come together. They both wanted to let America know that this wasn’t the way it should happen. Maybe, just maybe, both sides will tamp down the rhetoric and get back to politics. The hate-filled anti-Trump speeches that have occurred over the past six months need to stop, and it’s certainly not the GOP doing the hating here. The question is, will it actually matter, or have we already gone over the edge?

That’s the question that remains today. If history is any indication of what will happen, we’ve already gone over the edge and the democracy is actually in a slide that will end in either a revolution of sorts, or a complete collapse of the government and the need to be taken over by Canada. However, maybe, just maybe, these two sides can see this as something that has shoved the country too far. Maybe we haven’t gone over the abyss just yet. Maybe we can pull back the Chuck Schumer/Nancy Pelosi hate speeches that have permeated the media from the beginning of this presidency. Maybe the left wing, hate-filled media can actually pull back their over-the-top personal thoughts and feelings they have about anybody that is right of Sanders. And maybe, just maybe, politics can get back to normal.

There has been a lot of comparing of what happened on Wednesday to the Gabby Giffords shooting in Tucson a few years back. Of course, back then, the call for strict gun control from the left was almost immediate. That and the cry that it was those dastardly Republicans that were out to gun down members of congress. Of course, when it was learned that the guy was just a nut case, and didn’t have a political thought in his head, and had actually been more liberal than conservative, that talk was tamped down. Here, the guy was obviously a left-wing looney. But again, isn’t it time to put the comparisons aside and actually get down to work? I’ve been screaming about this for two months now. We need to forget the cry baby crap we’re getting from the left and from the media, and fix the country. If the libs don’t feel we are doing it the right way, there’s a simple solution. Come up with a better idea that is agreed to by all, and let’s do it. But that’s not what they do. They obstruct, they obfuscate, and they cry.

When the left (as the right did during the Obama administration) gets it through their head they are the ones causing this problem, then and only then we can move forward. Until then, slippery slope, here we come!
