Dems Built in Excuse for Possible Election Loss

Dems Get Ready To Blame Russia If They Don’t Take The House In November

Democrats expect that fierce anti-Trump sentiment will sweep them into power in the House, if not the Senate, this November. If that fails to happen, they are already preparing their excuse: Russian meddling.

 Just as in 2016, Democrats — as well as various political pundits — are certain of victory.

“Democrats may have already won the House,” declared the news site Axios this week, citing four reasons the election was a lock. read more

Dems May Regret not Voting for Tax Cuts

from IBD:

GOP Tax Cuts Are Turning Out To Be A Disaster … For Democrats

Not long ago, Democrats expected that the GOP tax cuts would be a political disaster for Republicans, just like ObamaCare was for Democrats in 2010. How’s that prediction working out?

Writing in the Atlantic in December, longtime political reporter Ron Brownstein argued that “President Trump and congressional Republicans have just taken the same leap of faith that Democrats did when they passed the Affordable Care Act.”

He went on to note that after Democrats passed ObamaCare in early 2010 — despite strong public opposition — the backlash from voters “helped propel Republicans to the biggest midterm gain in the House for either party since 1938 and gave them a majority in the chamber they still haven’t relinquished.” read more

Democrats are Using Our Youth

The democrat anti-gun parade (figuratively and literally) is well under way. And this time they’re leaving no stone unturned. They’ve enlisted the help of children. Although it’s more like the democrats have gotten these young skulls full of mush (h/t Rush) hooked on anti-gun crack and are now pimping them out to the main-stream leftist media.

Yet they want us to believe that it was the children who organized all these anti-gun rallies, marches and protests, rented the upscale busses, etc., all by themselves. Sure they did. The children certainly have not been coached and brainwashed to come out and argue against guns and our constitutionally protected rights – and they are definitely NOT being exploited for leftist political gain.

And by the way, lest someone mistake my claims for being heartless – I’m not making light of this latest tragedy. It is a tragedy – a senseless one. It’s the left’s choreographed response that bothers me – how they can get children to do their bidding, and no one seems to have a problem with it.

But what the children who have bought this gun control load of crap don’t comprehend is that the lying dems don’t want to actually do anything. How can I say such a think? We’ve all heard the heart-tugging speeches and interviews. The dems are serious this time! read more

Democrats Show who the Real Extremists Are

from IBD:

Democrats Dig Themselves Into A Hole After Trump’s Speech

President Trump’s political opponents complain that he is petulant, extremist and divisive. Then they revealed themselves at the State of the Union — with the entire country watching — to be far more petulant, extremist and divisive than Trump. Touché.

Trump has many faults, but one of his unique abilities is to drive his opponents absolutely bonkers. That was nowhere more evident than Tuesday night, when Trump delivered what was by all estimations a very good speech. A CBS poll found that 75% approved of it, and CNN’s poll found that 70% had a positive reaction.

The resulting contrast between Trump’s speech and the Democrats’ childish antics in the House chamber that night was painful.

At one point, Trump stated the fact that black unemployment is at historic lows. read more

WND Exclusive – After Montana, will Dems Rethink Early Voting?

Democrats have always been the party of early voting. That’s fitting, considering early voting is a joke, just like the Democratic Party. But now, thanks to the result in the recent Montana congressional race, some on the left may be rethinking the whole early-voting process.

Voting is something most Americans take for granted, if we think about it at all. But to citizens of many countries around the globe, it is a high honor and privilege. Recall the celebrations and elation of the people of Iraq who triumphantly waved their purple ink-stained fingers in the air. It was a sign of their first ever opportunity to vote in a free election, where no one was guaranteed 99 percent of the vote. (The other 1 percent was never heard from again.) read more

Can We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize

Update: I neglected to mention another option to avoiding doing the hard things like a full repeal of ObamaCare. A weak-kneed roll-out of ObamaCare-lite. Although there hasn’t been time yet to dissect the new proposal, you can bet it doesn’t resemble anything they have been promising us. I can’t wait to hear the tough-talking sales pitch of the watered down bill.

What has everyone in politics, every cable news outlet, every talk radio program been discussing since Friday? Well, it’s not ObamaCare, cutting taxes, or really any of Trump’s big agenda items. Of course, it’s wiretapping, meetings with Russians and tweeting.

For now four solid days we have been pummeled with wiretapping scandal stories. If it’s not specifically about wiretapping, it’s about Jeff Sessions or others meeting, or not meeting with the Ruskies. Oh, and also the salaciously commented on photo of Kelly Ann Conway perched on the couch in the Oval Office.

That’s four days the administration and those on Capital Hill have not been thinking of or acting on the campaign promises that were made to us – a full repeal of ObamaCare – cutting taxes and confirming the next supreme Court justice, etc., etc.

This one story has sucked all the oxygen out of the room. On Monday, Rush Limbaugh spent virtually his entire show – three full hours harping on the feud between Trump and the democrats and zero time on anything else. I don’t listen to Hannity anymore, but I’ll bet he did the same. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive – Democrats: The Wackier They Get the More We Win

Think about just how bad your message must be if you still can’t win elections, even with virtually everything stacked in your favor.

The Democrats have had the television and print media in their pockets for decades. Hollywood has been firmly behind them – even producing programming wholly designed to promote the left’s candidate, as in the TV show “Madam Secretary.” Save for a few instances, they’ve had leftist judges and courts consistently rule in their favor regarding election law.

They’ve been able to divide the nation into victimized groups, by way of race, creed and gender – informing each, or rather lying to them, that they cannot succeed without Democratic help. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

The left will never be satisfied with their candidate

It’s funny (not “ha ha” funny) that no matter how many years go by and how long the Democrats have run things in this country, the left is still not satisfied.

Jim Garrison, founder of Ubiquity University, like so many leftists, told us in 2013, five years into Obama’s presidency, that he believes “we are headed into a catastrophic system failure because of the collective refusal of our governments to deal adequately with climate change. I believe at the same time there is a huge, growing number of people who want fundamental change.” read more

Everything is Rigged – Except this Election

by: the Common Constitutionalist

According to Democrats, the only thing in life which isn’t rigged is this election.

As long as Hillary Clinton is said by the pollsters to be in the lead and likely to win, the “system” is just fine – but only the election system.

It can’t be rigged if the democrats win. A democrat being in power is the natural order of things. I think it may actually be a part of Darwin’s evolutionary theory. First the protozoa, then the fish, then the ape, then the Neanderthal Republican, and finally, the enlightened progressive Democrat. That’s how it goes – right?

It is amusing that the same people and party, who claim that everything in America is somehow rigged, think it ridiculous when the Republican nominee claims that of this election – and that Republican voters are the ones this time being “disenfranchised.”

In August of this year the Washington Post claimed  that Exxon Mobil is “rigging the system” against green energy. Of course they are. After all, they are the poster-corporation of evil “big oil.” “As recently as last year, it continued to fund organizations that play down the risks of carbon pollution,” writes the Post.

So “rigged” is the system that the AGs of the communist states of New York and Massachusetts, “are investigating whether ExxonMobil violated state laws by knowingly misleading their residents and shareholders about climate change.”

Amtrak Derailment Is Just Another Good Crisis

by: the Common Constitutionalist

An Amtrak train derails killing seven so far and injuring hundreds more. Frankly it’s a miracle more weren’t killed. Some are in critical condition and may still die from their injuries, but still, it’s a minor miracle.

Evidently the train was traveling in excess of 100 mph. “The speed limit is 70 mph just before the curve and 50 mph along the curve itself,” the Federal Railroad Administration said. Amtrak inspected the stretch of track on Tuesday, just hours before the accident, and found no defects.

Although there have been track and equipment failures in the past – some might call these things “infrastructure” – it’s pretty rare. Actually, train accidents are pretty rare, regardless of the cause. Including this one, there have been six train accidents thus far in 2015, and exactly none had anything to do with equipment or “infrastructure.”

In January a prison bus was struck by a train in Texas. There were two in February: a Metro North train hit a car and a derailment in California caused by hitting a vehicle on the tracks. There were two in March: an Amtrak train hit a tractor-trailer in North Carolina and a Los Angeles Expo-line train collided with two cars. Then of course there is this latest horrific derailment that appears so far to be driver error.

Five out of the six train accidents this year were caused by idiots in vehicles parked across the tracks and the other at least so far appears to be the fault of the driver. read more
