The real reason Democrats are freaking out about Donald Trump Jr.

Published

Democrats are freaking out about Donald Trump, Jr.’s latest email revelations. I am not going to defend what the Trump campaign did, nor should any reasonable person who cares for America and our nation’s right to self-determination. It is indefensible political sleaze.

Good news for the Democrat agenda: McConnell and McCarthy will lead the GOP

Good news for the Democrat agenda McConnell and McCarthy will lead the GOP

Trumplicans chalked one up for the status quo yesterday when they chose Paul Ryan’s right-hand man, Kevin McCarthy, to be the party leader in the House and unanimously re-elected Mitch McConnell to lead the Senate. Both men were endorsed by Donald Trump for the jobs.

Despite the fact that Republicans suffered the worst mid-term defeat since Watergate, McConnell and McCarthy touted a list of vague GOP accomplishments that conveniently failed to mention the party’s failure to keep their promises, which is why the Democrats won last week.

In an opinion piece for FOX News, McConnell bragged — now try not to laugh — about how the past two years of Republican leadership “will be remembered as a period of historic productivity.” He then challenged the new Democrat majority in the House to put aside partisan politics and work with Republicans to get things done.

Apparently, the concept of irony is lost on McConnell. Outside of the GOP’s alleged success at saving the Supreme Court, Democrats and Republicans have always been working together, which is why they still fund Planned Parenthood, Obamacare, DACA, and sanctuary cities with massive new spending that exploded the budget deficit.

While McConnell and McCarthy have adopted Trump’s “blame the Democrats for my failures” playbook, the sad reality is that Republicans favor the Democrat agenda because it’s their agenda; bipartisanship is a given.

Based on developments during the lame duck session, it’s going to be worse when the 116th Congress opens for business in January.

Nancy Pelosi called last week’s victory a mandate to save Obamacare and she will promote legislation designed to move America closer to a single-payer healthcare system. Trump has a track record of support for Obamacare and he promoted single-payer healthcare during his 2016 campaign.

Following the recent shootings in California, Pelosi announced that she would make gun control a top priority. Trump and the GOP have actively promoted radical gun-control legislation, including: seizing guns without due process, establishing an FBI database to track guns and gun owners, and requiring a license to own a gun.

Now comes word from the Democrats that they will work to bring back a classic of Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialists — a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour. As expected, Trump appears to be a fan of the idea.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump supported raising the minimum wage to at least $10 and hour. And as part of the recent US-Mexico trade deal, he fought for and won a $16 an hour minimum wage for auto workers on both sides of the border in an effort to price Mexico out of the auto industry. Ironic because he’s essentially admitting that mandatory minimum wages eventually result in lost jobs.

Even thought economic advisor Larry Kudlow recently stated his preference to see the federal minimum wage eliminated, Trump’s history of flip-flopping on this along with a host of other issues, along with his 2020 re-election hopes, means that the Democrats will likely win on the issue.

We were repeatedly told last week to vote Red to make sure we stop the Democrats. But to quote Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi hearings, when it comes to the difference between Republicans and Democrats . . .

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Leftism: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Leftism Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Doubling down on failure: Polling has the Left prioritising national socialized health care and repealing the Second Amendment.

It used to be a staple of every debate over the common sense human right of self-preservation. Someone from the Pro-Liberty side would point out that each assault on everyone’s fundamental human rights also infringes on the second amendment. The response from the enemies of freedom on the Socialist-Left would be along the lines of “No one is talking about repealing the second amendment” or “No one is talking about gun confiscation”.

That was before each step along the Leftist way was shown to be an abject failure. This was before the Left’s final solution to the gun problem became incredibly obvious to everyone. This was before every other part of the Left’s socialist national agenda crashed on takeoff.

Leftist priorities: national socialized healthcare and gun confiscation.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that a new poll has the top issues to Democratic priorities “securing single-payer health care and repeal of the Second Amendment.” It also shows that they aren’t eager for Hillary Clinton to give it another go, so maybe they can learn something.

It seems like they decided that if they are going to go delusional, they should go big. Going to fascistic control of the country’s healthcare system and getting rid of a fundamental human right is really shooting for the moon. This would be akin to them wanting to get rid of national borders or Abolish the Senate. Never mind, they’ve already proposed that kind of insanity.

Democrats: If at first you don’t succeed, fail, fail, fail, again.

Leftism is the only ideology that mandates doubling down on failure. Trying to carry out national socialist health care with the laughably entitled ‘Affordable Care Act’ a.k.a Obamacare failed to work as promised. That monstrosity was supposed to cut costs and eliminate the problem of the uninsured. Now that it’s failed spectacularly on both counts, the Left wants to give it a go with another version of ‘free healthcare for all’.

Meanwhile, Leftists efforts in controlling freedom have failed to keep anyone safe, So they want to redouble their efforts with repealing the second amendment. They should know that this wouldn’t remove the common sense human right of self-defence, only make it easier to do what they always denied – depriving the people of their means of self-defense.

The Left has trapped itself in an ever tightening path towards gun confiscation, the question we need to ask is are we any safer with all of their existing restrictions on Liberty? The Liberty grabber Left keeps on promising peace in our time with no results, when do we get to hold them accountable for their promises?

What is their next step?

Banning certain types of guns didn’t work. Adding every more complicated, embarrassing and expensive hurdles in the way of a human and civil right didn’t work. Controlling private property with Intergalactic Background Checks didn’t work. Restricting the freedom to buy ammunition didn’t work. So where do the liberty grabbers go from here?

At this point in time the Liberty Grabbers are falling all over themselves trying to come up with news ways of placing limitations on Liberty. One of their new and more creative methods would be to not only control sales of pieces of aluminium and parts as well as controlling the speech about said parts.

The Takeaway.

In both cases the Left’s control plans are doomed to failure. It should be obvious that making it illegal to defend yourself will not keep you safe. By the same token, the promises of ‘free healthcare for all’ cannot be fulfilled, as is the case with most socialist programs.

The devil you know: Why Republicans should back Pelosi for Speaker

The devil you know Why Republicans should back Pelosi for Speaker

This will probably be the least read story ever on this site. The thought of supporting Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for anything, let alone Speaker of the House, is unnatural, insane, and downright unAmerican.

It’s also the right thing to do for Republicans.

Pelosi may face stiff competition from within her caucus. At this point, nobody has stepped up to challenge her, but around two dozen have said they won’t vote for her. What’s unclear at this point is whether they simply won’t vote for her at the Democratic caucus later this month or if they intend to stick to their guns for the real vote in January.

If she doesn’t get the support she needs in January, some Republicans will need to step up and help her. It goes against everything we know as Republicans, but there are greater risks than Nancy Pelosi lying in wait. She may need Republicans to push her over the top, and they should.

Here are three reasons why it makes sense.

  1. The devil you know. As the title of this article implies, it’s better to go with the devil you know than the devil you don’t. We know Pelosi all-too well. We’ve spent decades opposing everything she says, does, and supports. That’s the point. We know what she’ll say, do, and support. Whoever is put into the Speaker’s chair if it isn’t her represents a great potential danger to Republicans and the republic itself.
  2. She can work with the President. They’ve clashed at times. They’ve called each other names. But at the end of the day Representative Pelosi and President Trump have gotten along. They can discuss things and come to conclusions. Those conclusions don’t always stick, but it’s a place to start. Now, imagine if someone who absolutely hates President Trump (which is most Democrats on Capitol Hill) ends up with in the Speaker’s chair. The President and Republicans may have no path forward for anything in their legislative agenda if they get a Democrat who won’t make deals.
  3. Keeping the Establishment afloat. As conservatives, we often find ourselves fighting the Republican Establishment. They’re often bigger thorns in our sides than Democrats because they don’t have the same excuse of congenital leftism that Democrats have. On the other hand, it’s imperative for Republicans that the Democratic Establishment staves off the onslaught of the Democratic Socialists. We wanted to face Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders in 2016. We’re seeing an ultra-progressive wave forming in the Democratic base that is a threat on multiple levels. Keeping Pelosi in power ensures failure. Allowing a Bernie Sanders acolyte to hold the gavel could be enough to bury their Establishment set for good.

It goes against our nature to root for Nancy Pelosi in any way. But sometimes the unnatural is the most logical course of action. Since it’s impossible for a Republican to be Speaker, it might as well be someone we know we can beat. That’s Pelosi.
