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.

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis?

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is one of the bluest major cities in America. The race for the Democratic nomination for the MN-5 district is essentially the general election because Democrats have held the seat belonging to Minneapolis since 1963. The closest a Republican has come to winning the district in this century was Alan Fine in 2006 who “only” lost to Keith Ellison by 34.3%. Oftentimes, the Democrat wins by over 50 points.

But Republican Lacy Johnson seeks to make history. He’s not making the attempt by being a moderate RINO trying to coax the people of Minneapolis into believing he’s basically a Democrat. His platform is boldly conservative and includes a balanced budget amendment, school choice, and a bear-hug embrace of President Trump’s economic policies.

Growing up with nine siblings in modest circumstances didn’t make him feel poor. It did make him realize it’s his responsibility to support his family as an adult and not rely on government. This is exactly the type of mentality we need more of in Washington DC. It’s the kind of mentality that will serve Minneapolis well.

Under normal circumstances, even being a strong candidate isn’t enough in Minneapolis when you have the letter (R) next to your name on the ballot. But in 2020, Johnson has one major advantage that should give the GOP hope. He’s going up against Ilhan Omar, the “Squad” member who has been nothing but an embarrassment to herself, Minneapolis, and the United States of America. Despite accomplishing essentially nothing outside of Twitter in her brief tenure, she still walks the halls of Capitol Hill as if she’s a diva rockstar. That’s part of the charade her “Squad” members portray; they’re a shame even to Democrats but because they’ve gained nationwide popularity among radical progressives, they’ve been allowed to keep playing their games. For now.

But even as Omar struts around Capitol Hill, she’s ignoring the people who put her in office in the first place. To Omar, Minneapolis is merely a place where she’s forced to campaign. We can see this based on her actions; literally nothing she has done in DC has even come close to affecting Minneapolis residence. That’s uncanny, even for a Democrat.

The people of Minneapolis may finally vote red for two reasons: (1) Lacy Johnson is a winner with great ideas, and (2) Ilhan Omar has been nothing but an embarrassment, absent from Minneapolis since her election. President Trump should endorse him.

Why Bernie Sanders failed so hard this time

Why Bernie Sanders failed so hard this time

Elizabeth Warren is the new Bernie Sanders. Mark it down. Sanders will be out of the race before the Iowa caucus even though he won it in 2016. Why? Because he was replaced by a younger, sleeker model.

But there’s much more to the story of the Sanders 2020 failure than just another radical progressive using the same basic talking points. Warren is something that Sanders is not. In fact, Warren has the one piece to the puzzle that Sanders has always lacked. He’s an old white straight male.

Elizabeth Warren female and will therefore beat Sanders for the radical progressive votes. It’s as simple as that.

In fact, it’s already happening.

Bernie Sanders South Carolina crowd size one-third of Elizabeth Warren’s

Campaign events by Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, competing for voters on the Left flank of the 2020 Democratic primary field, proved a study in contrasts this weekend as far as crowd sizes are concerned.

Nearly 300 people attended a Sanders town hall in Columbia on Saturday, while over 900 showed up to see Warren in Aiken the day before.

It was conspicuous that Eric Swalwell, Cory Booker, and other male candidates declared they would have a female running-mate long before they ever were a blip on the polling radar. They’re reading the tea leaves, seeing the writing on the wall, and realizing this version of the Democratic Party values intersectionality more than anything else. If a lesbian minority non-Christian ran this election cycle and had an ounce of personality, she would have run away with the nomination. But today, one must pick their favored intersectional characteristic since nobody possess all of them.

Do they go with minority female Kamala Harris? Gay male Pete Buttigieg? Minority political outsider Andrew Yang? It seems like most are picking the same card that beat Bernie in 2016. The Democrats want a female, and even though Warren is Caucasian (plus 1/1024 Cherokee!), she has the advantage of advancing the Sanders agenda and at times doubling down on it. Harris is trying to do the same, but she’s a mess. She can recover, but her bouncing policies are not as endearing as Warren’s strict adherence to radicalism-at-all-costs. And by “all costs,” I mean ALL costs… to everyone.

Despite being 1-2 in the polls from the beginning, neither Joe Biden nor Bernie Sanders have a chance of getting the nomination. The new Democratic Party will not nominate an old white male because they’re neither racist nor sexist. Ironic.

Do Omar, Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority?

Do Omar Tlaib oppose LGBTQ rights like the Palestinian Authority

Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib want Israel to be boycotted, divested, and sanctioned. They want the Democrats in the House of Representatives to take Congressional action against Israel. They want to drive a wedge between the United States and Israel. Most importantly, they want Israel to no longer exist, replaced by the Palestinian Authority and a “New Palestine.”

Do they also support the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities? Do they agree with the anti-LGBTQ tenets of the Muslims organizations the Congresswomen support?

In a society in which the media handled things in an unbiased manner, these are questions the press would be asking Omar and Tlaib following the Palestinian Authority’s ban on LGBTQ activities in the West Bank, an area where Tlaib’s grandmother lives and where she petitioned to visit before declining to do so after Israel allowed it.

The press should ask them if they support the Palestinian Authority’s move against LBGTQ individuals:

Palestinian Authority bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank

The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.

Both Tlaib and Omar claim to be supportive of LGBTQ rights. But they also have a not-so-subtle attachment to the Palestinian Authority and are actively working to put them in control of all of Israel. Does that mean they would approve of their ban of LGBTQ individuals “from the river to the sea”?

While many in America’s LGBTQ community continue to support and often partner with Islamic groups to help their friends in the Democratic Party, others in the community have spoken out against the anti-LGBTQ policies Muslim majority nations impose on their people. This needs to be addressed by LGBTQ leaders; they can’t (or at least shouldn’t) ignore the plight of the international LGBTQ community for the sake of political expediency.

The Palestinian Authority’s ban on all LGBTQ activities in the West Bank should be a point of contention that Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib need to reconcile. But they won’t. Mainstream media will bury the story and nobody will ask them how they feel.
