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.

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats’ incentive on Electoral College

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats incentive on Electoral College

The founders decided to employ an Electoral College in picking the President to prevent tyranny by majority. They realized back then exactly what is happening today – the establishment of urban and suburban echo chambers that would rather see flyover country engulfed by a giant tornado than to “suffer” through conservative and Christian ideologies, especially in Washington DC. This is the driving force behind the sudden push to abolish the Electoral College, and the satirical masterminds at Babylon Bee nailed it.

Democratic candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the charge to make the process that saved us from a Hillary Clinton presidency obsolete. Why? Because they can’t figure out how to win otherwise. Sure, they were able to dominate the Electoral College with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but the last two Democratic Presidents were running against weak Republicans in both of their elections. Had they been running against conservatives, especially in each of their first elections, the results may have been very different and the country may be in much better shape by now.

Nevertheless, this is what the Democrats want. Any system that can yield President Trump is a system they know they can fight against with their unhinged supporters, blind followers, and Trump haters.

That’s the nature of America today. Satire doesn’t need to venture too far away from reality in order to get a hilarious version of the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in, especially as it pertains to the loony party on the far left.

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs, minimum wage increase

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs minimum wage increase

Today I learned something that surprised me, not because of the event itself but because so few people have talked about it. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is known for being a leader of the socialist movement in Washington DC after rising from the humble status of bartender to the Congresswoman of the 14th district in New York. Her policies include a push for a “living wage” of $15 per hour. I’ve always thought the wording was odd considering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and others have been calling for a rise in “minimum wage.” Today, I found out why she’s shying away from that phrase.

When New York City raised their minimum wage $15, many businesses were hit hard, especially in the hospitality industry. Restaurants and bars started cutting hours and often even closing their doors over the increase. One of those hit hard by the massive bump was The Coffee Shop. Owner Charles Milite blamed the closure on high costs, with the rise in minimum wage as the last straw.

“The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees,” he said.

The Coffee Shop is the bar where AOC once worked.

Keep in mind, this wasn’t some random bar. The Coffee Shop in Union Square was considered a high-end establishment, buzzing all the time with “A-list” patrons. It was featured many times in the HBO show Sex and the City and had built a reputation as an “it” spot for Manhattan residents and tourists alike. In other words, this wasn’t a hole in the wall hanging on by a string. It was a vibrant, successful business for almost three decades before New York City’s untenable leftist policies, including a $15 minimum wage, became more than the bar could bear.

On the surface, many voters may see the very basic math of “oh, Democrats want to pay me more” and assume there’s no repercussions for such actions. This is why Democrats prey on those people who currently make lower wages. They feel if they can promise them something that sounds good even if they know with 100% certainty based on empirical evidence that it will actually hurt them, these new socialists are willing to make that trade. They figure they can blame the conservatives later for why the place they were working at before cut their hours, removed their jobs, or shut down because of raising the minimum wage.

As usual, socialists rely on ignorance and emotion as the driving forces behind their plans. They’re not stupid. They know their ideas won’t work. But they’re willing to push them on people anyway in hopes that ignorance will keep them in power.
