Democrats’ final pitch proves they think voters are stupid

Democrats final pitch prove they think voters are stupid

The hilarity of the final pitch by the Democrats is shocking. I hear it and I feel like Tom Cruise’s character at the end of A Few Good Men when Jack Nicholson screams, “You’re ******* right I did!” Cruise was dumbfounded. He actually admitted it. He admitted he was guilty.

On three of the four biggest issues the Democrats are running on, they’re being forced to convince American voters not to look at facts. That’s not a partisan jab; I’m a Federalist, not a Republican. But I can say objectively that Democrats are selling three big lies in order to convince voters they should be voted into the House of Representatives and the Senate this midterm election.

Let’s look at their pitch:

Lie #1: The economy isn’t helping the people

The economy is booming, but Democrats say it’s not, at least not in a way that helps the people. They say things like, “The stock market isn’t the economy,” which is true, but the stock market is a tiny piece of the success Republicans have had brought for the last two years.

The people say, “I’m saving thousands on taxes.” Democrats reply, “It’s just crumbs.”

The people say, “I finally have a job.” Democrats reply, “It should pay more.”

The people say, “But my wages are higher.” Democrats reply, “That’s Obama’s policies kicking in.”

I’m not sure which is more sad, that the Democrats are running on repealing the tax cuts that are bringing prosperity or that Republicans are, for some reason, letting them.

Lie #2: Obamacare is broken and we can fix it

This is the half lie. The first part is true. Obamacare is broken. From there, the Democrats’ narrative breaks down if voters put a quarter ounce of thought into the matter.

Their landmark healthcare deal was supposed to make things more affordable for the American people. It hasn’t. It’s actually made healthcare more expensive than it’s ever been, which is why this is such an important issue to many voters. Unfortunately, they’re being convinced by Democrats that the thing they erected in 2010 is somehow the Republicans’ fault.

Democrats cannot fix Obamacare because they’re even more spread across the ideological board than Republicans. The ideological differences within the GOP may have prevented them from repealing and replacing Obamacare when they had the chance, but compared to the Democrats they’re actually much closer to be in lockstep. The Democrats are scattered between two very different ways to fix Obamacare.

There’s the far left Medicare-for-All which doesn’t require a calculator to prove itself unfathomably destructive to the economy. In fact, most calculators can’t go as high as the socialist proposal requires.

On the other side of the Democratic Party’s stance on healthcare is a fix that is almost identical to what Republicans are pushing. Keep preexisting conditions covered, but reduce the burden on the middle class by promoting private healthcare alternatives for everyone whether they have a job or not. This can work now with so many more Americans working than before. It wouldn’t have worked two years ago.

Still, the Democrats’ pitch is essentially, “We broke healthcare and most of us agree with the Republicans’ way of fixing it, but we’re unwilling to go down that road unless it’s our names on the bills instead of theirs.” Seriously, that’s ridiculous.

Lie #3: Illegal immigration shouldn’t worry anyone

“Nothing to see here. Please disburse.”

That’s the narrative coming from not only the Democrats but also their mainstream media lapdogs. They want you to take the facts and bury them with your logic and common sense in a deep hole somewhere in the desert. Don’t fear the migrant caravans forming incessantly in Central America. Pretend like there’s nothing to fear from it. Watch our biased mainstream media coverage that uses either really wide shots or closeups to advance their narrative that the caravan is comprised mostly of innocent pregnant single mothers seeking asylum.

Medium shots are discarded because they show 80% or more of the people in these caravans are young, healthy men.

As we pointed out earlier, illegal immigration harms legal immigrants more than it harms anyone else.

But the Democrats are running on a notion of open borders. They might not say the words “open borders” (though some do), but how they propose to handle the situations is indicative of an open borders mindset.

It’s not just the migrant caravans. The numbers of illegal immigrants have gone up drastically every time the Democrats block one of the President’s initiatives on border security.

Nevertheless, Democrats are running on a platform that will make the illegal immigration problem worse and they’re banking on Americans being okay with this.

The fourth factor

This should be a landslide election for Republicans based on the first three factors. The fourth factor is the only thing keeping the Democrats’ hopes alive. They’ve made many Americans hate President Trump and his own words have been used to build this narrative.

So we have a midterm election where the President isn’t on the ballot, but he is. That’s their only hope, that Americans dismiss their own prosperity, health, and security so they can send a message to a President they don’t like.

I’m betting that Americans aren’t that stupid. I’m betting that American voters are going to save their anti-Trump vote for 2020 when he’s actually on the ballot. I’m betting that they’re going to vote on Tuesday to keep the agenda that’s been working so well for two years. If they do, they’ll prove the Democrats’ wrong.

When we examine the Democrats’ pitch, it’s unquestionable that they feel American voters are too simple to look at the facts. The question that will be answered on Tuesday is whether or not the Democrats were right to feel this way about us.

Andrew Gillum concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida gubernatorial race

It was arguably the most watched gubernatorial race in the nation this past midterm election season and it didn’t disappoint. It took a recount and multiple lawsuits to finish, but in the end Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum.

The mayor of Jacksonville finally conceded for the second time today, nearly two weeks after election day. He already conceded once on election fight.

Andrew Gillum concedes in Florida governor’s race for second time

https://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/2018/11/17/andrew-gillum-concedes-florida-governors-race-second-time/2041301002/In a four-minute video posted live on Facebook, Mayor Gillum stood with his wife R. Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.

Stacey Abrams doesn't concede in her non-concession speech

Republican Brian Kemp will be the next governor of Georgia. He defeated Democrat Stacey Abrams by receiving 50.2% of the vote, negating the possibility of a runoff election.

Abrams isn’t happy about it. She said today she’s unwilling to concede but acknowledged that Kemp would be certified as the winner. In a strange political doublespeak way, she fought back against a system that prevented her from rightfully winning.

Or something.

Bottom line: She lost. She, President Obama, and Oprah Winfrey failed to get her enough voters to win the election. Whether she actually concedes or not is irrelevant.

Kamala Harris pushes fraudulent ‘petition’ to build her 2020 fundraising spam list

Published

The worlds of marketing and political campaigning have many things in common. Their intention is to persuade people. They’re both selling something. They employ tested colors, designs, and buzzwords to get people excited. One of the keys to their success is something called “list-building.”

With ballots from the 2018 elections still being counted, Senator Kamala Harris is wasting no time building her 2020 list. To do it, she’s employing a deceptive technique, promoting an online “petition” that’s really nothing more than a way to get people to willingly give her campaign their contact information. These people will be targeted with campaign fundraisers later.

No official announcement has been made about her 2020 presidential run, but it’s hard to believe she’s not running after purchasing 1,100 Facebook ads to promote these “petitions.” A Facebook ad doesn’t have a set cost, but we can assume big money is being put into these list-building ads because of the sheer volume. To put it into perspective, Beto O’Rourke spent around $5 million on Facebook ads for his Senate campaign. Presidential campaigns can easily spend 25 times as much as an expensive Senate campaign.

Unlike a valid petition people often sign to get a candidate or proposition on a ballot, these list-building petitions don’t actually do anything. People are told they’re demanding this action or that, but in the end they’re just giving over information. Some go so far as to ask for everything, including name, address, phone numbers, email, and occasionally even income. These lists grow much more slowly because of the depth of the information requested.

A more common technique is to ask for minimal data to encourage people to fill it out. At the end of the day, all a campaign really needs is an email address they can later use in fundraising campaigns. Here’s an example of an ad Senator Harris’ campaign recently put out:

Kamala Harris Petition

The meta data reveals the page was titled, “Acquisition: 180822 Mueller FB.”

“FB” means it was a Facebook campaign. “Mueller” was the topic. “180822” is the tracking number for A/B testing. “Acquisition” is the goal. Anyone who signed this “petition” has just had their contact information acquired. Mission accomplished. They will soon be receiving emails asking them to donate to the Kamala Harris 2020 presidential election fund.

As for the results of the “petition,” they will go nowhere. There won’t be a Congressional action that is enabled by the thousands of people who “signed” it. You won’t see Kamala Harris standing in front of the White House reading off the names of the people who participated in the “petition.” She couldn’t do that even if she wanted to because the “petition” only asks for a first name. Are there really people out there who believe signing a petition only requires a first name?

Senator Harris is promoting fraudulent petitions with the sole purpose if building her 2020 fundraising spam list. Anyone who “signs” it believing they’re demanding protection for Robert Mueller is a sucker. That’s exactly who she wants to target.
