The Complete Meltdown of the Democratic Party (Opinion)

An opinion piece worth reading.

Published

on

This week was a landmark for the Trump presidency. On February 4, the president delivered an eloquent State of the Union speech summarizing the many achievements of his first three years in office. On February 5, the impeachment charges against him were voted down by the Senate and he was acquitted. This was a week that the president can be proud of. He walks away stronger than ever before.

Sadly, the media refuses to acknowledge the unqualified success of the Trump presidency. In so doing, they unwittingly cast a spotlight on the utter meltdown of the Democratic Party. Trump’s very existence has torpedoed the party that just a few short years ago placed laurels on the heads of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. For the miserable attempt to bring this country down, their heads should roll. “Obama’s legacy is in utter ruins,” says Matt Margolis in Trumping Obama. “His executive pen was really a pencil and Trump was the eraser. The Obama era—once seen as transformative and consequential—will now be a mere footnote in history.”

The Democratic Party has no clear platform other than contempt for the most successful president since Reagan. This is a party that is steeped in negativity and sheer incompetence. They have no answer to the success of Trump’s economic and foreign policies. A flimsy attempt has been made to downplay Trump’s achievements by suggesting that the statistics cited in his SOTU speech are false, that Trump’s results have not been as laudatory as the president and the facts attest. It is to be hoped that the voters are not so gullible as to accept this claptrap.

Trending: Schiff Knew About ‘Bounties’ On US Soldiers, But Stayed Silent & Did Not Tell Congress

One of the serious accusations laid at Trump’s feet by the Democrats is that he is not presidential. What does that really mean? Is being presidential to be equated with the phony boy scout behavior that we saw in Obama and George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter? I say it is defined by strong leadership, upholding traditional American values, and keeping campaign promises. Trump certainly has his rough edges, but if you are truly seeking presidential behavior, all you have to do is listen to Trump’s unapologetically positive State of the Union. And did you notice that never once did he refer to the impeachment fiasco? He remained above the craziness that is characteristic of Pelosi & Company.

Ironically, the big headline this week is that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tore up the president’s speech, as though she did something heroic. How pathetic. How unpresidential. How indicative of the ideological bankruptcy of her party. The Iowa caucuses were another reflection of the depths to which this party has sunk. The embrace of socialism by the party’s presidential candidates and their positions on immigration, climate, healthcare, and education reflect support for unlimited government over individual rights. If the Democrats have their way, we will have a socialist nation run by unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats. The Democratic Party is all about the acquisition of political power and nothing more.

Look at the cast of characters. Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, and Maxine Waters are complete lunatics. Pelosi is an embarrassment. The “democratic socialists”—Sanders, Warren, and the Squad—are so far from the middle-of-the-road Democratic Party that they are unrecognizable to traditional Democratic voters. Others—Buttigieg, Harris, Booker, Klobuchar—are just plain forgettable. And let’s not forget the billionaires—Bloomberg and Steyer—who want to buy the 2020 election.

The final indignity of which the Democratic Party is guilty has been its unrelenting attempt to invalidate the 2016 presidential election. The ridiculous, partisan Mueller investigation found no wrongdoing by the president in spite of their best efforts to sink him. The subsequent attempt to impeach Trump by the Democratic members of Congress revealed them to be false and seditious by virtue of their supporting articles of impeachment that clearly were without merit. And let’s not forget this question: Why did they push for impeachment when everyone over the age of five knew it would end in defeat? Is there any doubt that they are wanting in judgment and integrity? I have a radical proposal. Let the voters decide.

Activists Get Ready To Storm DC In Protests Set For Independence Day Weekend

Published

on

Liberals are determined to try and ruin Independence Day celebrations this year in any way they can, such as showing up en masse in Washington, D.C., to hold protests and demonstrations to supposedly end racism or something of that nature. This, of course, is more of the same old thing we’ve been seeing for weeks now across the country in light of the death of George Floyd. Lots of rioting, looting, and burning things, all in the name of ending police brutality. Feel free to roll your eyes now. Rather than celebrate the fact we live in a wonderfully free country with the best innovation on the planet, these folks would rather stand outside and shout pathetic slogans in an attempt to recapture the faded and completely unnecessary flames of the 1960s Civil Rights movement. I say unnecessary because the Civil Rights movement succeeded. There’s no more systemic racism, no matter how hard folks try to craft a narrative and say there is. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Activists in the most high profile of these events plan to protest the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park. The memorial, which leaders of the local collective the Freedom Neighborhood claimed they would topple last week, has become a subject of national interest, with many people making a case both for and against the statue. Glenn Foster, the leader of the Freedom Neighborhood, has promoted multiple protests against the memorial set for the days surrounding the July 4 weekend. In some of his material, he celebrated the fact that on Tuesday the Boston Arts Commission voted to remove an identical copy of the statue, which depicts President Abraham Lincoln freeing the slave Archer Alexander, from public display. The movement has received support from D.C. public officials. Shadow Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton on…

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…
