Are Dems in Congress getting Tired of Biden? Is a Democrat “Civil War” Brewing?

Manchin and AOC

FoxNews.com reports that

A House Democrat blamed President Biden’s White House for not holding anybody “accountable” for the multiple crises plaguing America, saying it “started with Afghanistan.”

The lawmaker eviscerated Biden over the multiple political pit traps the administration has dug itself into. Specifically, the lawmaker took aim at the White House over its handling of the botched Afghanistan withdrawal that saw 13 U.S. service members killed in the Kabul suicide bombing in August.

“This is an indictment of the senior leadership in the White House,” the lawmaker told The Hill during a lengthy Monday phone call. “The worst part is nobody will be held accountable for this.”

“They don’t understand the American people want results; they don’t want drama and rhetoric,” the House Democrat continued. “Everyone has been left high and dry.”

Additionally, the Democrat said that they could “see everyone” — meaning vulnerable Democrats — “fleeing for the hills at this point” to shy away from Biden and run for election on their own.

“It started with Afghanistan,” the House Democrat continued. “Nobody was held accountable for the chaos that the Afghanistan withdrawal constituted. It allowed everyone to get a pass. It sent the message that the president will stick by you, so do whatever you want.”

“I do think [Biden] needs to clean house if we have any chance of salvaging 2022. There have to be consequences,” the legislator added.

The lawmaker’s comments come amid the Democrats’ internal implosion after Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced on “Fox News Sunday” that he would not be voting for Biden’s signature Build Back Better bill, killing it outright.

The announcement has led to serious political infighting between progressive and moderate Democrats, who are clawing at both Manchin and the White House over the dead bill.

The infighting comes amid multiple crises facing the Biden administration, including the southern border crisis and growing inflation.

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

I have been waiting and hoping and thinking and praying for nine months that this would happen.

The Democrats, by traveling to the Far Left at ludicrous speed, have left the majority of their political party behind, and getting more angry at their elected representatives by the minute.

So, it is no surprise to me that they are beginning to experience their own “Civil War”.

The  Voting Rights Bill and the Pork-Laden $3;5 Trillion Dollar Social Justice Extravaganza Bill were designed to turn our Constitutional Republic into a Democratic Socialist remake of Venezuela.

Average Americas know that as sure as they can see gas prices go up and grocery shelves become bare.

And, they do not like it.

Therefore, their elected representatives, Democrat and Republican, are getting an earful.

Americans want Democrats to shut up and Republicans to grow a spine.

The Democrats have pushed all the wrong buttons of Average Americans.

And, even if Joe Biden was not a demented old fool, he still could not rescue the Democrats from themselves.

You see, Marxism, which is what “Democratic Socialism” is, is not about “sharing the wealth”.

It is about citizens giving their earnings to a huge “Central Government” who controls their lives from cradle to grave.

Those in power are the only ones who wind up achieving wealth and living comfortably.

And, as we are beginning to see, Americans are not going to stand for that.

Hence, the “F*** Joe Biden” chants and all the parents showing up at School Board Meetings to protest CRT.

The Democrats’ lust for power and control is leading to a coming implosion.

Their alligator mouths have overloaded their hummingbird rear ends.

Pass the Popcorn.

Pelosi Declares That She is a Catholic to Prove That She Does Not Hate Trump…”I Don’t Hate Anybody”…Yeah, Right

pelosi-1-1

Who does she think she is kidding? “I’m Catholic. I was raised in a house of love. Don’t associate that word with me!” It’s the only reason you people are doing what you’re doing. You know, if you draw them out, we find out what this is really all about. They can’t beat Trump on climate change, they can’t beat him on gun violence, they can’t beat him on immigration.

That’s why they want to get rid of him. Their policies are being shredded. They’re being wiped out. But they come up with these phony baloney constitutional excuses to get rid of him. It’s because they are inept, and they are losing. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/5/19

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attempted to shut down a reporter on Thursday, telling him not to “mess” with her after he suggested that she might hate the president.

“As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. And I pray for the president all the time, so don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” she said.

Sinclair reporter James Rosen had asked Pelosi: “Do you hate the president?”

“I don’t hate anybody,” she initially shot back. She wagged her finger and pointed at Rosen, telling him not to accuse her of hating someone. Rosen denied doing so.

After Pelosi’s presser, President Trump appeared to address the issue on Twitter.

“Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit,” he tweeted. “She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she “prays for the President.” I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?”

The exchange came during the Speaker’s weekly press briefing and just after she publicly called for articles of impeachment against Trump — a significant development as the House Judiciary Committee holds public hearings in House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry.

“Today, I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” she said, referring to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.

She previously knocked Rosen, a former Fox News reporter, in November, describing him as “Mr. Republican talking points” after he asked a question about Trump getting the right to confront his accuser in the Ukraine controversy.

In September, she also ripped into a reporter who asked her about the House’s action on gun control.

“If you are annoyed with my impatience,” she added, “it’s because people are dying because Senator McConnell hasn’t acted. Why don’t you go ask him if he has any regrets for all the people who died because he hasn’t acted?”

She’s also repeatedly invoked her Catholic faith when getting testy with reporters — particularly with her stance on abortion.

The California congresswoman has described herself as a “devout practicing Catholic,” identifying with what is perhaps the largest pro-life organization in the world.

Catholic clergy have repeatedly condemned both the act itself and pro-choice political advocacy. Vatican officials have reportedly said Pelosi should be denied the sacrament of Holy Communion and the last pope — Pope Benedict XVI — personally reminded her of the Church’s stance on the issue during a private meeting.

San Fran Nan has caught the Express Train to Crazytown.

She absolutely despises President Trump.

She snapped at James Rosen because she was trying to hide her hatred yesterday, masking it in a bunch of political doublespeak about how their impeachment of the President is not “political”.

Pelosi has been caught between a rock and hard place ever since he took over as Speaker of the House.

She has been attempting to hold her party together by trying to appease both the “Democratic Socialists” and the “Moderates”.

For a long while she resisted the impeachment movement within her party, knowing that, with the economy doing so well, it would be a tough sell.

However, she finally caved in to the Radical Left and those suffering from extreme TDS like Schiff and Nadler.

So, now it appears as if there may be a vote on the Floor of the House before the end of the year recess.

Whether she has the votes or not, whether it goes to the Senate or not, and whether it goes to trial or is dismissed by a Senate Vote, the Democrats have already handed President Donald J. Trump the victory in the 2020 Presidential Election.

It would be different if he had actually done something horrendously wrong.

However, Trump has done nothing impeachable and average Americans know it.

Living in their Beltway Bubble, the Democrats have, once again, arrogantly overplayed their hand.

After this impeachment fiasco is shot down in the Senate, the Democrats will be stuck with egg on their faces and a bunch of losers to pick their Presidential Candidate from.

And, by that time, Americans will probably also have a glimpse into Spygate and the beginning of the phony Russia Collusion Investigation.

Finally, as far as the Speaker of the House and yesterday’s attempt at Sainthood goes, her reaction betrayed her.

Kellyanne Conway Says Dem Nominee Will Have to “Defend Socialism”…Yeah, Good Luck With That

dnc-circus-dt-600

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1160320950468009984

FoxNews.com reports that

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that while President Trump may tweet about Joe Biden as if he is sure to get the Democratic presidential nomination, she is not concerned at all about who Trump’s opponent is.

In a conversation on “Fox News Sunday,” Conway said that the Democratic Party’s hard push to the left will make it easy for Trump to be reelected in 2020.

“It may be Joe Biden, it may be somebody else, but it doesn’t really matter,” Conway said, referring to how many of the candidates are supporting “Medicare-for-all” and free health care for illegal immigrants, Every candidate who appeared on the second night of the first debate said they supported health care for those in the country illegally.

Several candidates, while favoring “Medicare-for-all,” also noted the impracticality of jumping to such a plan right away. Candidates including South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have called for a private option for the time being, so people who want to keep their current employer plans can do so.

Conway noted that whoever it is will not just be running against Trump, but “the Trump economy,” which has surged during the president’s term in office.

Conway also said it is far too early to tell who the Democrats will ultimately select, given that “there’s still 23 or 24 of them running,” but she did note that many of the 2020 hopefuls are polling low. When the campaign reaches the general election stage, however, Conway said the Democratic nominee will have to answer for the party’s more extreme policies.

“Whoever it is, they really have to defend socialism now,” she said.

The Democrats have been advocating “Democratic Socialism” for quite a while now.

The past almost three years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

And now,  with Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors failing to find any proof of Russian Collusion and no actionable proof of obstruction, veteran Democrats like Biden realize that claiming that they are actually “Moderates” may be the only way to keep their party from going the way of the Whigs.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They learned nothing at all during their 2 years out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

And, simply declaring themselves to be “Moderates” is not going to cut it.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

I mean, the crop of potential Democratic Presidential Candidates are such a bunch of lightweights that the Democrats are actually creating a buzz about the possibility of Michelle “Mooch” Obama jumping in at the last minute to “save” them.

Now, THAT’S desperation.

“Democratic Socialists” Take Charge of the Democratic Party as Moderates are “Put on a List”

sanders-aoc-ap-img

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.” – President Ronald Reagan

GreenwichTime.com reports that

From the halls of Congress to the presidential campaign trail, Democratic moderates are beginning to push back against the wave of liberal energy and shoot-the-moon policy ideas that have captured the party’s imagination over the last two months.

They worry that the sweeping proposals and hardball tactics of liberal firebrands could alienate centrist voters in the 2020 election, even as they hold out hope that Democratic primary voters, focused on defeating President Donald Trump, will check the party’s move to the left.

The moderates’ concerns came to a head this week when one of the newest Democratic stars appeared to threaten her colleagues if they did not toe the liberal line, raising the specter of a cleave in the party between moderates and purists similar to a long-standing divide in the Republican Party.

At a closed-door meeting of House Democrats on Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said some of her colleagues could find themselves “on a list” of primary election targets, after they voted for a Republican amendment requiring that undocumented immigrants who try to buy guns be reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to people in the room who were not authorized to comment publicly.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., a co-chairman of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, said he has confronted party leaders about such threats, which have also come from the Justice Democrats, a liberal group that backed Ocasio-Cortez’s primary campaign.

“Being unified means ensuring that Democrats aren’t primary-ing other sitting Democrats,” Gottheimer said. “Since when is it okay to put you on a Nixonian list? We need to have a big tent in our party or we won’t keep the House or win the White House.”

Some warned that imposing purity tests could lead to a Democratic version of the conservative tea party revolt that transformed the GOP in recent years. That surge has brought Republicans new energy and new voters, but it’s also cost the GOP some congressional races and legislative victories.

Several Democratic presidential candidates, including many of the early entrants, have quickly endorsed sweeping liberal policies, including a Medicare-for-all health plan, a “Green New Deal” to combat climate change, and reparations for African Americans. Recently, however, some prospective candidates have been offering an alternative vision.

Sen. Michael F. Bennet (D- Colo.), who is contemplating a presidential run, said U.S. politics needs to return to a more civil place. He referred to the House Freedom Caucus, a group of purist Republicans that often opposes legislative compromises.

“We don’t have to settle for disgraceful politics. We don’t have to settle for being as terrible as Donald Trump,” Bennet said during a visit to Iowa on Feb. 21. “We don’t have to settle for Freedom Caucus tactics – those guys are tyrants. We don’t have to accept that.”

Liberal Democrats, including many new to Capitol Hill or national politics, argue that the party has been too timid, caving to Republican pressure and failing to inspire voters with calls for sweeping change. The surge of new voters in the midterm elections, they say, shows the excitement and support generated by such proposals.

The centrists counter that liberal ideas and candidates have more power online and among the grass roots than at the ballot box and that the passions will likely fade in coming months, both in Congress and the presidential campaign.

John Anzalone, an Alabama-based Democratic pollster, said the perception that the party’s primary voters are enthusiastically liberal is not based on data.

“There is, without a doubt, a myth that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez somehow represents the narrative of Democratic primary voters in the country,” Anzalone said. “Almost half of them identify themselves as moderates or conservative.”

Really?

Are these “Moderate Democrats” all bound and gagged and being kept in a bunker somewhere?

From San Fran Nan Pelosi and Chuck “U.” Schumer on down, Marxism is being fully embraced in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.

Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
 

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.

The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.

No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

These new “useful idiots” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only the next two years but the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they have  become which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

However, like the Marxists who have declared “war” on America and her citizens before, this new generation of “useful idiots” will find it very hard to win the hearts of average Americans.

For you see, we know Who gave us this country. America was built on a Solid Rock.

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25

And, as I wrote yesterday, the “Democratic Socialists” don’t even know which restroom to use.

What Do the Democrats Stand For Going Into the Midterms…Besides Hate?

dem-machine-dt-600

Does anyone actually know what the Democratic Party Platform is going into the Midterm Elections?

From what I have seen while watching the news, both local and national, all they seem to stand for is their deep, abiding, visceral hatred of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Back on March 3rd of this year, Charlie Savage wrote the following in a News Analysis posted on NYTimes.com

Despite simmering unrest, there have been only a few extraordinary moments that broke the mold of public stability. Those include peaceful demonstrations, like the post-inaugural women’s march and the airport protests against Mr. Trump’s initial ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries. Far more disturbing, they also include the near-fatal shooting of a Republican congressman and several other people at a baseball practice by a man who was furious at Mr. Trump and Republicans, and the spectacle of throngs of white supremacists emboldened by the era to march in Charlottesville, Va. — culminating in an apparent neo-Nazi sympathizer plowing his car into anti-racist counterprotesters, injuring dozens of people and killing a woman. Fortunately, those two moments of extreme political violence have been exceptions.

For a counterexample of how a time of intense political bitterness can start to tear this country apart, look back exactly half a century to 1968. In that chaotic year, America slashed and clawed at itself amid the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the riots that followed; the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as he ran for president; swelling antiwar demonstrations on college campuses amid growing recognition that the government had been lying about the course of the Vietnam War; and the police beatings of protesters in Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

Factors like the draft and the race relations of the period made that tumultuous year a particular historical moment. But one difference between then and now is salient: Arguably, there was little reason to believe that the November 1968 election was likely to provide immediate relief.

We are lucky that so far 2018 does not look like a new 1968. But the relative calm may be like an unexploded bomb, its volatility not so much defused as contained by the thought that Trump Republicans will be punished in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. These expectations are widespread. After the big Democratic special election victories in places handily carried by Mr. Trump in 2016, from Virginia and Alabama to Wisconsin, Republican lawmakers in purple districts are retiring to avoid ending their careers in humiliating defeats.

Democrats, meanwhile, relish visions of a new congressional majority wielding its subpoena power to flay the Trump administration with oversight investigations. They can see it now: Making public Mr. Trump’s hidden tax returns and otherwise laying bare any financial dealings between foreign governments and his businesses. Inviting the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct to testify at a televised hearing. Unearthing what his appointees have been doing in places like the Environmental Protection Agency, where collection of fines from polluters has plummeted.

Almost taking a House flip for granted, Democrats whisper that a tsunami-level wave would also flip the Senate and stop Mr. Trump’s assembly line for turning conservative lawyers into life-tenured federal judges. Some even fantasize about impeachment.

Such vivid anticipation steers those sputtering at Mr. Trump’s presidency to take deep breaths and bide their time until Nov. 6, which draws closer every day: The 2018 campaign cycle formally starts this week with primary voting in Texas.

But a significant Democratic wave may not materialize. Good economic news, for example, tends to blunt anti-incumbent sentiments.

Having written this at the beginning of March, Mr. Savage could not have foreseen the great things which President Trump would accomplish between then and now, such as retrieving the 3 American Hostages from North Korea and opening the United States Embassy in Jerusalem way ahead of schedule.

However, he did get one thing right:

It’s the Economy, stupid!

Average Americans living in the Heartland, like myself, love getting extra take home pay.

Trump’s efforts to turn around America’s Economy are greatly appreciated by us.

On the other hand, what have the Democrats, who desperately want us to vote for them in the Midterm Elections, done for us?

Not a cotton-pickin’ thing.

In fact, if you are a businessman or an employee in Seattle, Washington, they are forcing the Marxist Theory of Socialism down your throats by levying a “Head Tax” on you, in order to “care for Seattle’s homeless population”.

Not to sound crass and uncaring, but have those Far Left Politicians up there run all of the Christian Charities, like Memphis’ Union Mission, out of town?

But, I digress…

Evidently, it is like Rush Limbaugh has been saying for quite a while now,

There are no Moderates left in the Democratic Party.

Otherwise, Liberals would have stopped their ongoing National Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016, months ago.

Just like the child who believes that they will receive attention by jumping up and down, hollering, screaming, and crying until their eyes turn red and their face turns blue, Democrats have made the mistake,, which came from their own arrogance, that they majority of Americans hold the same visceral hatred from President Trump that they do.

They actually still believe, even after losing the 2016 Presidential Election, that theirs is the majority political philosophy in our nation.

When you question them about that, they will argue that Hillary received the majority of the Popular Vote.

However, here are some facts that you can answer them with…

32603684_886896691506331_4329291197160882176_n

Hate has never accomplished anything.

This country was not established on hate.

This country was established by men and women yearning to be free to worship God as they chose to do so.

Americans cherish our Liberty.

Average Americans have seen what Marxism has done to other countries around the world and we want no part of it.

Democrats, if you want any chance at holding the Presidency ever again, lose the hate, lose the arrogant intolerance, and embrace American Reality,

It’s too late for the Midterms.

As the brilliant cartoon by Antonio Branco illustrates above, that “Blue Wave” that you were counting on….

…is going to be a drip.

DNC 2016: Promises, Propaganda, and Protesting

DNC-Sell-Job-NRD-600

Last week, the Main Stream Media attempted to paint the Repubicans, as they held their 2016 National Convention, as being “split wide open” and the optimistic Acceptance Speech of Donald J. Trump as somehow being “dark”.

As foreboding as they attempted to make last week’s convention sound, the Democrat’s gathering this week has exceeded the chaotic  picture painted by their sycophants in the MSM…and then some.

The Associated Press reports that

Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination.Despite Sanders’ calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda.

Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a media tent. Some had their mouths taped shut. A few spontaneously sang the chorus of the folk song “This Land is Your Land,” and a banner read “we the people.” They said they were holding a peaceful protest to complain about being shut out by the Democratic Party.

“This was not a convention. This was a four-day Hillary party. And we weren’t welcome,” said Liz Maratea, a New Jersey delegate at the media tent protest. “We were treated like lepers.”

In the streets outside, Sanders supporters who had spent the day protesting began facing off with police. Protesters began scaling 8-foot walls blocking off the secure zone around the arena parking lot, and several were detained. An officer sprayed one of the protesters.

The protests continued into the night with Sanders supporters and anti-police brutality protesters joining together. They marched in the street outside of the Wells Fargo Center. Later, someone set an Israeli flag on fire while people chanted “long live the intifada.”

Others then came together for a candlelight vigil.

Unmoved by Sanders’ plea for party unity, the Bernie or Bust protesters walked miles in the stifling heat again Tuesday to make their case for him. They held a midday rally at City Hall, then made their way down Broad Street to the convention site. By early evening, a large crowd had formed outside the subway station closest to the arena.

“We all have this unrealistic dream that democracy is alive in America,” said Debra Dilks, of Boonville, Missouri, who said she wasn’t sure she’ll vote in November. “Hillary didn’t get the nomination. The nomination was stolen.”

The crowd consisted of an assortment of protesters espousing a variety of causes, but mostly Sanders supporters and other Clinton foes on the left. College student Cory James said he expects the Democratic Party to split over the nomination.

“I suspect we are witnessing an event that will fundamentally change American politics,” said James, of Flint, Michigan.

Earlier in the day, participants at the rally charged that Sanders was cheated out of the nomination, and they said they weren’t swayed by his Monday plea to his supporters to fall in line behind Clinton for the good of the country.

“He persuaded no one to vote for Hillary,” said Greg Gregg, a retired nurse from Salem, Oregon, who intends to cast his ballot in November for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The longstanding bitterness between Sanders’ supporters and Clinton’s seemed to grow worse over the past few days after a trove of hacked emails showed that officials at the Democratic National Committee played favorites during the primaries and worked to undermine Sanders’ campaign.

Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter said Monday’s speeches from Sanders and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn’t persuade him to support Clinton.

“They really agitate people more every time they stand up and do the Hillary Clinton hoo-rah hoo-rah,” he said.

Carter, a Dallas resident, said he doesn’t fear a Republican Donald Trump presidency.

With temperatures climbing again toward the mid-90s, Chris Scully, an engineer from Troy, New York, held a “Jill Before Hill” sign outside City Hall and said he opposes Clinton because of her war record as U.S. secretary of state.

As Scully spoke, a passer-by called out: “That’s a vote for Trump!”

In a separate protest, against police brutality and racial injustice, about 500 people marched down Broad Street to City Hall. Protest leader Erica Mines told the crowd it was an “anti-police rally” and a “black and brown resistance march” and instructed all white people to move to the back.

March participant Tiara Willis, of Philadelphia, said she subscribes to the slogan “I’m with her … I guess.” She said she won’t back Trump and called Clinton “the lesser of two evils.”

So, while the DNC was scrambling to find some American Flags to put on view inside the convention hall, after Americans noticed that they were purposefully left out of the proceedings, and Millennial Icon Bernie Sanders was selling out to “the Establishment Democrats that he had promised to fight “for the people”, on the other side of the “security fence”, the “peasants” were revolting.

Their reason?

After months of campaigning on the promising of usher in an eras of more “FREE STUFF’, both Self-Proclaimed Socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and the Queen of Mean and now-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton are embracing the illusion of the Democratic Party being “Moderate” in their Political Ideology, while trying to sucker those on the Far Left into believing that they still matter in the scheme of things.

Instead, the peasants are not being fooled and they are revolting.

(Yeah. They stink on ice. – Mel Brooks, “The History of the World, Part I”)

Unrequited love is so sad, isn’t it?

Why are Far Left Democrats (which nowadays describes the overwhelming majority of the Party) so enamored of Socialist Politicians?

Merriam-webster.com defines socialism as:

…any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

…a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

…a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

The desensitization and placating of the Middle Class, as it was in classic Marxist Theory, is a key element of the Present and Future Platform of the Democrat Party, as it has been during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

By taking the ambition of the Middle Class away, by offering a “safe and comfortable” cradle-to-grave Nanny-State, “Uncle Sugar” Federal Government, the Democrat Party, ever since the launch of LBJ’s “Great Society”, have bought the loyalty of  American voters by giving them bribes of “free” money and “benefits”.

Unfortunately, as Mitt Romney alluded to during his failed bid for the Presidency, there is a great percentage of American voters who will buy and be content with this “Mother’s milk”, instead of yearning for the thrill and the challenge of the hunt for American Individual Success and Freedom.

has become the mantra of the Modern Democratic Party, which has become extremely adept at promising the Moon and handing out free stuff to its voting base, in order to maintain their Seats of Power and to continue to grow the Politboro, or Central Government.

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate,  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

However, just like the Marxists before them, today’s Marxists can be bought off.

According to rumors, Bernie Sanders was co-opted into publicly supporting Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend’s wife through the offer of his own airplane.

That makes sense.  That and the fact that he does not wish to be the victim of a “mysterious death” in his future.

Thanks to a highly politicized, propaganda-filled Department of Education, which has “dumbed down” a generation of voters, the “easy money” solution to poverty, promised by Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “tickles the ears” of low information voters, the same voting bloc who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama and his failed Presidency.

Hence, the Democrats’ claim of supporting Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders and his Wannabe-Socialist Millennials.

Not to mention the Police Line-up of  guest speakers representing the “downtrodden” and ‘marginalized” that they hand-picked to show that the millionaire Hillary Clinton is “down with the struggle”.

Just like the Politboro before them, this wannabe “New Politboro”, like their sitting President, Barack Hussein Obama,  is quite adept at using human beings for stage props for propaganda purposes.

They bring dishonesty to a level not seen since Kurt Russell played Used Car Salesman Extraordinaire Rudy Russo in the movie, “Used Cars”.

The thing is, even after the debacle that has been this week’s Democratic National Convention, highlighted by the releasing of e-mails by WikiLeaks, not to mention the long history of corruption of Hillary Clinton, Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump will have to work hard to win the Office of President of the United States of America.

Can he do it? Sure, he can.

After all, he wrote “The Art of the Deal”.

Get your popcorn ready.

The Ryan/Trump Meeting: Professional Politician Attempts to Negotiate With the Author of “The Art of the Deal”. Nail Meet Hammer.

Ryan-For-Real-600-nrdRepublican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, will be meeting with the inevitable winner of his Party’s Presidential Nomination, American Billionaire and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump, today.

Bloomberg Politics reports that

Donald Trump is coming to his meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan Thursday to deliver a message to the Republican establishment, his advisers say: Get on board or get out of the way.

“Mr. Trump doesn’t need to do anything,” said Representative Duncan Hunter, the California Republican who co-chairs Trump’s U.S. House Leadership Committee. “As Republicans in the House, we got used to the idea that our speaker was the de facto leader of the party. We didn’t have somebody to represent our party against President Obama’s administration. But that’s over now — it’s Trump, whether people like it or not.”

Both men are likely to find some way to put a pleasant face on the meeting, but they start far apart on the likely outcome, according to conversations with people in both camps. Ryan is looking for the the party’s presidential nominee to somehow declare fealty to conservative principles. Trump is not willing to cede any ground in his role as the incoming standard-bearer for the Republican Party.

Both sides say they don’t expect Ryan to suddenly come out and endorse Trump. Ryan aides say the speaker mostly wants to get to know Trump better, having met him once before.

Instead, Thursday’s meetings will set the tone for whether either Trump or Ryan is willing to budge in the name of preventing a Republican divide, and how much they’re willing to do in the name of achieving party unity this fall.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who helped broker the get-togethers, will be at the first meeting between Ryan and Trump. From there, the pair meet with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry. Trump is also to meet with Senate Republican leaders later in the day.

Downplaying Expectations
Ryan, who set these events in motion by publicly withholding his endorsement of Trump, has been trying to play down expectations for Thursday’s meetings, calling them the beginning of a process. He said the two men only met in person back in 2012, the year that Ryan ran for vice president on a ticket with Mitt Romney, who has become one of Trump’s most vocal critics.

“We just need to get to know each other,” Ryan told reporters Wednesday. “We come from different wings of the party. The goal here is to unify the various wings of the party around common principles.”

Beyond that, exactly what Ryan will be looking for from Trump isn’t clear. Ryan is believed to be keeping his options open for a possible presidential bid in 2020, but he also faces the more immediate challenge of making sure that his fellow House Republicans don’t suffer a humiliating defeat at the polls in November if Trump’s candidacy turns into a landslide defeat.

One House leadership aide said Ryan plans to discuss two main points: how Trump can bring along more conservatives who don’t feel like they have a home in his current candidacy, and why Trump should make conservative principles, such as limited government, part of his campaign. 

Policy Gaps
Ryan isn’t intending to hold a detailed policy discussion, according to a lawmaker familiar with his intentions, who added that the first meeting will be more about establishing a one-on-one relationship. Ryan and Trump have very sharp policy differences. While Trump has based his campaign on his hostility to free-trade deals and a pledge to sharply restrict immigration, including a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, Ryan is a dedicated free-trader and has pushed an immigration overhaul. 

Some of Ryan’s fellow Republicans, however, won’t have much patience for a long, drawn-out reconciliation. Even two of his own top lieutenants have already publicly backed the New York billionaire — McCarthy of California and Scalise of Louisiana.

“I don’t think Trump necessarily needs Paul Ryan to get elected president — he hadn’t needed him so far,” said Representative Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia, who is among those who argue it is time for all Republicans need to get behind Trump. 

House Speaker Paul Ryan comes into today’s meeting with the inevitable Republican Party Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, at a distinct disadvantage.

Whether he realizes it or not.

Here are some Bullet Points to ponder (Hey, what would you expect from a Former VP of Marketing?)

  1. According to the latest polls, only 40% of Republicans believe that Ryan is doing a decent job as Speaker of the House. In other words, he is continuing Cryin’ John Boehner’s legacy of bending like a willow tree, in deference and Dhimmitude to the wishes and machinations of the current President, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).
  2. The Professional Politicians, like Paul Ryan, who comprise the Republican Establishment, have no one to blame but themselves for Donald J. Trump’s rise to power. Their refusal to abide by the wishes of the majority of American Voters and stand up to the Machiavellian Political Shenanigans of Barack Hussein Obama, as exposed during his two-term quest to “radically change” America, provided the genesis for “an equal and opposite reaction”, as Sir Isaac Newton would say.
  3. For Paul Ryan to, all of the sudden, proclaim himself to be the “Poster Boy for Conservatism” is akin to Michael Moore being the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. Ryan has always been a Moderate. He was the Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate in 2012, running with “Mr. Severely Conservative” himself, Mitt Romney. Average Americans, here in “Flyover Country did not buy what they were selling then. We “sure ain’t buying it” now.

It appears to me that the GOP Elite, continuing to be out of touch with those who put them in office, view themselves as some sort of “Vatican West”.

They have sent Paul Ryan, as Speaker of the House, to be an “Emissary” or, perhaps, a “Missionary”, in order to bring the “vulgar savage” Trump, back “into the flock”.

Unfortunately for Ryan and the rest of the Vichy Republicans, withholding their “blessing” from Trump has not phased him at all, nor does it hurt his Presidential Campaign.

In fact, their condescension and disdain strengthens his image as a Political Outsider, a “Citizen Statesman”, who is running for President in order to “Make America Great Again”.

These Pious Professional Politicians, like Ryan and the rest of the GOP Elite, need to understand the following (Cue the second volley of bullet points):

  1. Trump does not need their “blessing”. He is in a virtual tie with Hillary Clinton in the polls predicting the outcome of the Presidential Election of November 2016.
  2. It is their actions…and inaction up on Capitol HIll, which have brought us to the Seminal Moment in History.
  3. Trump’s popularity does not come from maintaining the Political Correctness of the Washington Staus Quo. It comes from the anger of average Americans toward those who have embraced and maintained it.

Trump does not need the “salvation” which the Pharisees of the Republican Establishment are offering.

If they wish to win the 2016 Presidential Election, they must listen to the message that we, the people who voted them into office, are sending through the ascension of Donald J. Trump, and get the log out of their own eye first…before they attempt to remove the cinder from his.

Call It “Nationalism” or “Populism”, There is a Reason That Trump is Still Leading The Republican Primary: Americans Are Voting For Him.

Final-GOP-Cut-600-LAAs I was perusing my usual sources this morning, in my preparation for writing today’s post, I found an article by Patrick J. Buchanan, who was twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the Reform Party’s candidate in 2000. He is also a founder and editor of The American Conservative. Buchanan served three presidents in the White House, was a founding panelist of three national TV shows, and is the author of 10 books.

The title of the article, “What Trump Has Wrought”, leads one into a descriptive summary of the movement that the Political Intelligentsia is referring to as “Nationalism”.

In other words, the old-fashioned, according to Liberals and Marxists (but, I repeat myself), concept of PUTTING AMERICA FIRST.

And, while the article is a very nice summary of exactly where we are and why Donald J. Trump is leading the Republican Presidential Primary Race, on behalf of my fellow contributors at www.hotgas.net, please allow me to quote John McClane (Bruce Willis, in the now-classic movie, “Die Hard”), when I say,

Welcome to the party, pal!

As we have been chronicling, this “Nationalism” that Buchanan refers to in his article, is actually a Grass Roots Movement, just like the Tea Party Movement was, and is.

It is a Populist Movement.

Dictionary.com defines “populism” as

1. the political philosophy of the People’s party.
2. (lowercase) any of various, often antiestablishment or anti-intellectual political movements or philosophies that offer unorthodox solutions or policies and appeal to the common person rather than according with traditional party or partisan ideologies.
3. (lowercase) grass-roots democracy; working-class activism; egalitarianism.
4. (lowercase) representation or extolling of the common person, the working class, the underdog, etc.:populism in the arts.

That word first reappeared in the American Lexicon, when Sarah Palin almost dragged John McCain’s RINO Rear across the Finish Line, in the Presidential Election of 2008.

The Grassroots Movement, which began back then has led us to a seminal moment in American Politics.

The American People are speaking, loud and clear.

Along with my fellow contributors at Hot Gas, I have been writing factual articles about why Donald J. Trump was winning in the Republican Primaries, so far.

And, we have all caught Hell about it.

We have been was called everything, but Children of God.

Heck, one guy of the Political Facebook Page of another Christian American Commenter, even reported a recent article of mine as “spam”.

If y’all have any doubts about my Christian American Conservative Bonafides, there are almost 2,200 blogs which prove them, going back to April of 2010, when I started.

Or, you can ask the “Missional Community” (it’s not called “Sunday School” any more, at this contemporary church) Class I led last Sunday Morning at my home church.

But, I digress…

The word “populism” first reappeared in the American Lexicon, when Sarah Palin almost dragged John McCain’s RINO Rear across the Finish Line, in the Presidential Election of 2008.

The Grassroots Movement, which began back then, through the hard work of average Middle Class Americans, like you and me, has led us to a seminal moment in American Politics.

A “Citizen Statesman”, such as our Founding Fathers envisioned, is on track to be the Republican Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America.

The American People are speaking, loud and clear.

A Candidate has to build a coalition, in order to win the Presidency.

Ronald Reagan, and, again, I am not comparing Trump to Reagan, figured out in 1980, that, in order to win the presidency, you had to bypass the Republican Establishment and go directly to the American People.

That is exactly what Donald J. Trump has done.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, broke it down for us, during his program on February 10, 2016…

This is what the Republican Party’s been telling us they need to win.  I’ve had ’em come to my office.  I’ve told you.  I’ve had Rand Paul here, Mitt Romney’s here.  One thing they’ve all said in common is that Republican Party can’t win with Republican votes alone anymore.  We have to branch out, we have to reach out.  This is what they were telling me to prepare me for some of the campaign tactics that I was gonna see. That they were gonna have to reach out and immigration was one of the ways of reaching out, supporting amnesty. Well, all along Trump has built that coalition the Republican Party claims to want and they’re out there badgering it and bashing it.  It’s exactly what they claim to want.  They could have had it.  The Republican Party could have had the Trump coalition.  They could have had it at health care.  A majority of Americans opposed Obamacare from the get-go.  The Republican Party could have seriously attempted to form an alliance with the Tea Party and the anti-Obamacare people and been a dominant majority party on that issue alone.  And then on subsequent issues to come down the pike the Republican Party could have formed an alliance with majorities in other areas of opposition, and they didn’t. 

Donald Trump has the exact coalition the Republican Party, to a man, has told me they need to win, that they need to thrive.  And now they’re reduced to bashing it by virtue of bashing Trump.  And now they’re reduced to bashing it by virtue of bashing Cruz.  The two people who are showing the Republican Party all they had to do all these past seven years, but they didn’t.  They purposely, strategically, tactically refused to push back, refused to make a spectacle of stopping Obama, and they have themselves to blame for this predicament. 

People are not gonna donate and donate and vote and vote and hear the right things during campaigns, the promises to stop Obama, to oppose Obamacare, to seriously make an effort to repeal it.  Even if they don’t have the votes to override a veto, the effort, all it would have taken was the effort, all it would have taken was put the onus on Obama, make Obama illustrate that all this is his fingerprints.  No such strategy was ever seen. 

As I gave previously written, Trump is riding the crest of an ever-growing anger over the inaction of Professional Politicians, whom, after being voted into National Office by their constituents back home, have literally bitten the hand that feeds them, tossing Ma and Pa Kettle aside for Big Money Donors and the Political Prestige of “reaching across the aisle”, i.e.. “selling out”.

The results of today’s Wisconsin Primary, are promising to be very close.

All of the so-called “Political Pundits”, both Professional and self-identified, to use a Millennial Buzzword, have already given Cruz the victory.

The problem with their presupposition, is that several polls are showing a last-minute surge by Trump.

Things could get very interesting tonight.

I understand the ongoing frustration that Cruz Supporters are feeling.

I liked him, too. In fact, during his ongoing quest against the Establishment (Vichy) Republicans, I stood by him 100%.

However, this Presidential Primary Season has revealed, one thing, if nothing else:

There are no angels in these Presidential Primary Races. One either side.

The problem is, Moderates and Democrats, for whatever reason, do not trust Cruz.

Holding one’s breath until they turn blue, or telling a Christian American Conservative that they are somehow condemned to Hell and are Unpatriotic, for pointing out the reality that Trump is the Undisputed Leader in the Republican Primary Race, is not going to change the reality of the situation.

Neither will staying at home and not voting this November, if Trump receives the Republican Nomination.

That’s been tried before.

That is how we got stuck with Petulant President Pantywaist.

Finally, as I have observed in previous articles, if the Republican Establishment decided to have a Brokered Convention, as appoints their own Moderate milksop of a Presidential Candidate, America will be swearing-in President Hillary Rodham Clinton, next January.

However, I am beginning to believe that the Vichy Republicans. for all of their bluster, could care less.

They appear to be willing to do whatever it takes to preserve the Washingtonian Status Quo…including ignoring the wishes of the American Voters, who gave them their cushy jobs.

As it has  proven, without a doubt in the past, the Republican Establishment’s arrogance will be their undoing.

After all…

Actions (and Inactions) have consequences.

Obama Attacks Trump During Presidential Press Conference. Throws Stone From Glass House.

Obama-Shrinks-2Yesterday, President Barack Hussein Obama held a Press Conference….and further demeaned the Office, which he presently holds.

CNN.com posted the following article…

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama has a message for Donald Trump — being president is tougher than being on a reality show and the American people are too “sensible” to elect him.

“I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be president,” Obama said at a news conference in California after a meeting with southeast Asian leaders. “And the reason is that I have a lot of faith in the American people. Being president is a serious job. It’s not hosting a talk show, or a reality show.”

He went on: “It’s not promotion, it’s not marketing. It’s hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right.”

Obama offered surprisingly frank assessments of the campaign to replace him, taking shots at Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. He also hinted hint that he was sympathetic to Hillary Clinton’s position on the difficulty of enacting political change, as she faces a tough challenge from a candidate in Bernie Sanders, who has fired up Democratic primary voters who are demanding sweeping reform.

But it was the potential of a Trump administration that Obama seemed most eager to critique. 

The presidency isn’t “a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day. And sometimes, it requires you making hard decisions even when people don’t like it,” Obama said, adding that whoever succeeds him needs to be able to reflect the importance of their office and give foreign leaders confidence he or she knows their names and something about their nations’ histories. Obama also appeared to raise the question of whether Trump was prepared to be commander-in-chief.

“Whoever’s standing where I’m standing right now has the nuclear codes with them, and can order 21-year-olds into a firefight, and (has) to make sure that the banking system doesn’t collapse, and is often responsible for not just the United States of America, but 20 other countries that are having big problems, or are falling apart and are gonna be looking for us to something.”

He added: “The American people are pretty sensible, and I think they’ll make a sensible choice in the end.”

Trump responded to Obama during an event in Beaufort, South Carolina.

“He has done such a lousy job as president,” Trump said, before adding that he didn’t mind being targeted by Obama, saying he took it as a “great compliment.”

Trump wasn’t the only Republican who took a shot from the President.

When he bemoaned Republican warnings that his nominee to replace late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court would not even get a hearing, Obama rebuked people who claim to be “strict interpreters” of the Constitution — except regarding his right to propose a nominee.

That seemed to be a clear jab at Cruz, who has helped lead calls to prevent the president installing a nominee who could tilt the ideological balance of the court to the left.

Rubio also came under fire when the president mocked “a candidate who sponsored a bill, that I supported, to finally solve the immigration problem, and he’s running away from it as fast as he can.”

The President stepped more carefully when he was asked about the Democratic race. He opened by making it look like he was delivering a veiled endorsement of Clinton, who is facing a stronger than expected challenge from Sanders.

“You know, I know Hillary better than I know Bernie, because she’s served in my administration, and she was an outstanding secretary of state. And I suspect that, on certain issues, she agrees with me more than Bernie does,” Obama said.

But then added: “On the other hand, there may be a couple issues where Bernie agrees with me more. I don’t know, I haven’t studied their positions that closely.”

Obama who, like Sanders, once wowed young Democrats with soaring calls for change in the 2008 election, also appeared to give credence to Clinton’s election argument that pushing through fundamental reforms is harder than it looks.

“Ultimately, I will probably have an opinion on it, based on both — (having) been a candidate of hope and change and a President who’s got some nicks and cuts and bruises from — you know, getting stuff done over the last seven years.”

Obama was clear on one thing — he’s happy not to be in the race himself.

“The thing I can say unequivocally,” he said, “I am not unhappy that I am not on the ballot.”

Considering that you are about a popular with Americans as Michael Moore is with All-you-can-eat Buffets, I’ll bet you’re not, Mr. President.

That’s a nice Glass House you’ve got there, Skippy.

Let’s take a moment and look at your less-than-stellar track record before your “Sponsors” cleaned you up and foisted you upon the American People. shall we?

The following FACTS are contained in my post, “The Great Disconnect: The Whole, Ugly Truth About Barack Hussein Obama”…

From 1985 – 1988, Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago.  What does a Community Organizer do?  I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising.

If you ask Obama’s fellow Community Organizers what his significant accomplishments were, they’ll say two things: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects.  Those  were his biggest victories.

So, after 3 years of Community Organizing, Obama enrolled in Harvard Law School at the age of 27.  The question is:  How did he get the money for this?  In my article Why Haven’t I Heard of Khalid Al-Monsour? ,  I attempted to answer that question:

President Obama attended Harvard Law School from 1988 – 1991.  The average tuition during that time was $25,000 per year.  It would have cost $75,000 to attend there for 3 years.  As president of the Harvard Law Review, he received no stipend from the school, according to Harvard spokesman Mike Armini in a interview with Newsmax.

If numbers cited by the Obama Presidential Campaign for Scooter”s student loans are accurate, that means that Obama came up with more than $32,000 over three years from sources other than loans to pay for tuition, room and board.  Hmmmmm.

Along with the funding issue, very little is known about Obama’s time at Harvard Law School,and his sycophants in the Liberal hierarchy, Main Stream Media,  and even Harvard Law School Administrators have done a remarkable job in running interference against anyone trying to find out about it.

From Jodi Kantor’s article at nytimes.com:

He arrived there as an unknown, Afro-wearing community organizer who had spent years searching for his identity; by the time he left, he had his first national news media exposure, a book contract and a shot of confidence from running the most powerful legal journal in the country.

In 1995  “Bomber” Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn hosted a fund-raiser for Obama prior to Obama’s run for Alice Palmer’s seat in the state Senate  and Ayers donated $200 to Obama’s upcoming state Senate campaign.

In 1996 at age 34, he ran for the state Senate in dubious campaign that is barely known of, outside of Chicago.   Alice Palmer, the incumbent, had decided to run for Congress and supported Obama as her successor.   But after Palmer’s congressional campaign ran into trouble, she changed her mind and decided to run for re-election to the Illinois Senate after all. Obama refused to step aside and the melee ensued.  One of Scooter’s volunteers challenged whether Palmer’s nominating petitions were even legal.  Obama’s campaign pulled the same chicanery concerning the petitions of other candidates.  Palmer dropped out, and the other candidates were disqualified.   So,  Obama won unopposed in the Democratic primary—guaranteeing his victory in the general election.  This was truly an example of Chicago-style politics at it’s finest…or dirtiest.

He “served” as a United States Senator from Illinois from 2005 – 2008.

Obama sponsored 121 bills as a senator, of which 115 never made it out of committee and 3 were successfully enacted.   He co-sponsored 506 bills during the same time period.

Barack Obama missed 314 (24%) of 1,300 roll call votes.  He did not have the option of voting “Present” as he did 130 times in the Illinois State Senate.

One and one half years after taking his seat in the U.S. Senate, Obama declared himself a candidate for the Democratic nomination as their representative in the 2008 Presidential Election.

And now, after 7 years of a failed presidency, Obama has the temerity to attacked a self-made billionaire, further degrading the Office of the President in the process.

Trump responded to Obama’s comments Tuesday from Beaufort, SC, saying,

This man has done such a bad job. He has set us back so far, and for him to say that is a great compliment, if you want to know the truth. A network called and wanted a response. I said, ‘You’re lucky I didn’t run last time when Romney ran, because you would have been a one-term president.’

The man may have a point.

According to the latest Reuters Poll, he still has a commanding lead over the other Republican Candidates, including Senator Ted Cruz…

  • Donald Trump 40.8%
  • Ted Cruz 16.9%
  • Ben Carson 11.5%
  • Marco Rubio 9.8%
  • Jeb Bush 8.0%
  • John Kasich 7.1%
  • Wouldn’t vote 5.4%
  • Jim Gilmore 0.6%
  • Carly Fiorina –%
  • Chris Christie –%

With November rapidly approaching, the Democrat Party, including the President himself, are beginning to show signs of desperation and panic.

Look at their two top candidates, can you blame them?

You have a crazy old Socialist, who looks like Doc Emmett Brown from “Back to the Future”, who hasn’t held a real job in over 40 years and a Former First Lady/Carpetbagger New York Senator/Failed Secretary of State, with obvious Health Issues and no personality whatsoever, who is so dadburn mean that grass never grows again where she spits.

It’s really no surprise that the President of the United States attacked the Leading Presidential Candidate of the Opposition Party, yesterday.

Liberals will tell you whom they fear.

Republican Establishment Stacks SC Debate Audience in an Effort to Derail Trump and Cruz

gop-debate-north-charleston-680x365A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. – Ronald Reagan, March 1, 1975

Yesterday, on Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, a lot of Americans were talking about Republican Presidential Hopeful Donald J. Trump and the less-than-supportive reaction that he received during the Republican Primary Candidate on Saturday Night, which was held in South Carolina, the state which will hold the next Primary Elections.

It turns out that there was a logical reason for that, and it wasn’t just his mercurial personality.

Breitbart.com reports that

GREENVILLE, South Carolina — The chairman of the local Republican Party here confirmed to local television that 2016 frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump’s concerns—and those of his closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) —with the Republican National Committee (RNC) allocation of debate audience tickets are well-placed.

Chad Groover, the chairman of the Greenville County Republican Party here, told WYFF—the local NBC News station—that party donors get tickets to the debate.

“You’ll have a good mix of people who are donors, people who are donors and workers, and people who are just workers,” Groover said, noting that he got “a couple of dozen” of tickets to hand out to the party’s faithful donors.

“I didn’t have hundreds of tickets. I had a couple of dozen tickets,” Groover said.

That means a significant proportion of his stack of approximately 24 tickets went to monied interests backing the GOP—not to actual voters in the upcoming election.

Sources close to the process who work for the RNC, but are not authorized to speak on the record, confirmed to Breitbart News throughout the evening on Saturday that that is standard operating procedure for the RNC and the party as a whole for all debates: Donors get tickets while voters have to watch on TV at home.

As such, the same appears to have been true party-wide. One well-placed source who works for one of the GOP presidential campaigns and was in attendance at the debate on Saturday evening here—but was not authorized to speak on record about the matter—told Breitbart News that Sen. Lindseey Graham (R-SC) and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley were personally given scores of tickets to distribute. Both despise Trump and have said so publicly–Haley even using the platform of the official GOP response to the State of the Union to do so–and it would be no surprise if they did aim to stack the audience with anti-Trump sentiment.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said another source in the audience, someone who has attended several of the GOP debates. That source said the anti-Trump and anti-Cruz audience members—who were thoroughly cheering for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and his mentor former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush when they made passionate cases for amnesty for illegal aliens, something entirely non-representative of South Carolina’s electorate—were behaving unlike any audience he’d ever seen in his lifetime of attending GOP presidential debates.

The Republican National Committee’s Sean Spicer confirmed to Breitbart News pre-debate that the RNC proper distributed 367 tickets while the state party and locally elected officials received 550 tickets. Meanwhile the debate partners—CBS News, the Peace Center, and Google—received another 100 tickets. That means more than 1000 tickets—1,017 by Spicer’s admission—went not to voters in the upcoming election and not to campaigns for equal distribution to their supporters but to special interest distribution of those connected to the party, mostly high dollar donors. Only 600 tickets were distributed equally among the six remaining GOP campaigns, which to be fair to the RNC is the highest number of tickets distributed as such so far this election cycle.

But Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is calling for the RNC to drop all donor tickets and stop handing them out to special and monied interests entirely. Lewandowski says at all the rest of the debates from here on out, Spicer and the RNC must equally allocate all tickets among the various campaigns so they can distribute them equally and fairly to their supporters—and cut out all the donors and special interests who get tickets.

“I think the RNC does a terrible job in allocating the tickets, to be honest with you, There’s an opportunity—there’s 2,000 seats out there, there’s six candidates on stage, they should just divide them evenly so everyone has them, but instead they just give them to the donor class, they give them to the lobbyists and to all the special interests,” Lewandowski said in the spin room. “It’s not fair, it’s not equitable. So I think what they should do moving forward is take the total number of seats available, allocate them across the board and let the candidates bring their people in, because that’s who should be here, not the donors.”

Spicer has refused repeatedly over the course of several emails on Saturday and Sunday morning to answer whether the RNC will comply with Lewandowski’s request to drop all RNC and state and local party ticket allocation and just allow the campaigns to equally distribute all debate tickets fairly to their supporters in the future.

Trump’s and Cruz’s concerns are even being confirmed by many across the political spectrum. In fact, even the left-of-center Huffington Post confirms that the RNC’s ticket allocation system seems to have been “behind” the excessive and unwarranted booing of Trump and Cruz—and cheering of the donor class supported Rubio and Bush.

“The audience at Saturday’s CBS News Republican presidential debate was more boisterous than unusual — booing, clapping and generally making its feelings known during several exchanges between candidates on stage in Greenville, South Carolina,” the Huffington Post’s Igor Bobic wrote. “At various points, attendees seemed to favor former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and to be very much against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and real estate mogul Donald Trump — the two candidates currently leading the race. The way the Republican National Committee distributed the tickets may have been behind the heightened reactions.”

Vox, another left-of-center outlet, ran a headline that made it even clearer: “The Republican establishment packed the debate audience with Donald Trump haters.” In the piece, author German Lopez noted that the audience’s pro-Rubio and pro-Bush cheering was “very peculiar” as was the booing of Trump and Cruz.

“Something very peculiar happened at the Republican debate on Saturday night: When Donald Trump talked, the audience booed. Yet when Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and even John Kasich talked, they got loud cheers and applause,” Lopez wrote. “This happened again and again. It even led a spike in Google searches for ‘Why are people booing?’”

Vox even admits that Trump’s claim on stage that the odd—and unrepresentative of the party’s voting base—audience was made up of “Jeb’s special interests and lobbyists” was really not “that far-fetched.”

“Prior to the debate, the Republican Party decided not to use a lottery system to decide who should be in the audience,” Lopez wrote. “Instead, most tickets went to elected Republican officials, donors, and other workers for the party picked by local, state, and national party officials. The result, it seems, is the room was packed with Republican voters who overwhelmingly dislike Trump.”

That seems to be why Lewandowski is calling for a new system for fairness, one that cuts the RNC completely out of the process. It remains to be seen if other campaigns will get on board with this, but earlier in the cycle–due to the RNC’s ineffectiveness in dealing with biased moderators–the entire field of campaign managers met privately to cut the RNC out of the process of negotiating with the networks. It is only logical that the next step is that the campaigns work to ensure fairness in debate audience selection, something the RNC clearly failed at providing.

Well, gosh. Why would the Establishment Republicans want to stack the audience like that?

Could they be desperate?

Did the ignorant, disrespectful CBS Television Series “Angel From Hell” featuring Jane Lynch, a Conservative-hating Atheist, get cancelled…quickly?

You betcha.

Speaking of CBS…

According to CBS News…

The CBS News Battleground Tracker poll shows that Donald Trump keeps a large lead in South Carolina, bolstered by support from conservatives and also from evangelical voters, who make up a large share of the electorate here.

Ted Cruz is in second place, but well behind Trump. Cruz has the support of those who consider themselves very conservative, but trails Trump among all conservatives as well as moderates.

John Kasich has gotten a little bounce out of his surprisingly strong showing in New Hampshire, but he may be limited here by the fact that evangelical voters are not as strongly in support of him as non-evangelicals.

For Trump voters, who have been relatively steadfast in their support over the last few months, the percentage who say they’ve firmly decided on Trump has increased. Trump’s lead among evangelicals is up from January, and he has widened his lead among conservatives, too.

In a contest marked by divisions among so-called “insiders” and “outsiders,” South Carolina Republicans show a strong preference for campaigns running as the latter, and this poll helps illustrate why. By four to one, South Carolina Republicans describe the “establishment” as a bad thing, and few describe it as a group that knows how to get things done.

On the metric of being “prepared” to be president, Trump and Cruz do well, and Jeb Bush and John Kasich do relatively well, but Marco Rubio trails in this regard, suggesting that last week’s debate in New Hampshire may have had an impact.

Hillary Clinton keeps her large lead in South Carolina, which has narrowed only slightly from last month, and she is bolstered by strong support from the African American voters who comprise most of the Democratic electorate here.

This is what I don’t understand about the Republican Establishment.

They run around telling everybody how Conservative they are, when in reality,they actually hold the same beliefs as Liberal Democrats.

The public wants new ideas. We are tired of dancing to the Washington Two-Step.

That is the reason for the popularity of Trump and Cruz. They have been saying the things that Americans have been wanting to hear for some time now.

That is the reason that they are the Leaders in the Republican Primary.

Contrast them to the candidates whom the Democrats are offering: old white folks from the Northeast Corridor, one who is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and the other, a demented old socialist, who resembles Doc Emmett Brown from “Back to the Future”.

The “Vichy Republicans” as I refer to them, are looking a Gift Horse in the mouth.

They are positioned to sweep the nation, on the way to placing their candidate in the Oval Office, buoyed by a Grassroots Movement, the likes of has not been seen since the 1980 Presidential Election, which put into office the greatest president in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan.

All the Republicans have to do to be successful is something that they seem to have forgotten how to do, since they themselves were swept into Congressional Power in the 2010 and 2012 Mid-Term Elections.

They need to pay attention and actually listen to the voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

The need to stop backing the wrong “horse”.

They are showing their color to be Liberal Blue, while they claim to be Conservative Red.

It is almost as if they believe that the Political Tsunami, which resulted in Republicans holding both Houses of Congress, came about because they made themselves look like Democrats.

They need to come down off of Capitol Hill every now and then.

And, visit Realityville.

Average Americans, like you and me, living from paycheck to paycheck in America’s Heartland, do not need another Democratic Party.

If we wanted to continue to put up with their Liberal Stupidity, we would have left all of them in office.

Instead, in November of 2014, we showed them the door.

The overwhelming majority of average Americans are tired of the empty promises and spineless behavior of Professional Politicians, including Squishy Moderates, who have more in common with the Democrats in the Northeast Corridor, than they do with average Americans in the Heartland.

If the Republican Establishment continues this war against Trump and Cruz, they will go down to defeat again in 2016.

They will never achieve victory by trying to push the jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Until He Comes,
