When looking from the outside in it’s easy to make the assumption that the Republican Party, at least within the confines of the Washington beltway, is far from having its act together. As evidenced by its inability to make good on its promise to repeal and replace Obamacare and the passage of yet another wasteful spending bill that accomplishes nothing more than to grow the government. Our problem, which is very much in need of being corrected come the 2018 election, is the fact that currently it’s only roughly 60 out of the 238 Republicans in the House that can in any way be considered as conservative. And things are even worse over in the Senate. But to make the claim that the Democrat Party is anything other than a party headed in multiple directions at the same time takes naïveté to a whole new level.
And it is none other than Nancy Pelosi, who I can only assume must be suffering from what can only be described as a rather severe case denial, who refuses to acknowledge just how severely fractured her Democrat Party truly is. And it was when she was recently asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl to grade the Democrats during the first 100 days of President Donald Trump’s administration, Pelosi responded, “In terms of unity, 100 percent unified.” To which Karl shot back asking her, “Two-thirds of the American people say the Democratic Party is out of touch … Isn’t the Democratic Party a bit of a mess right now?” Pelosi responded, “No, it isn’t.” However, there are those within her party, and even in the left leaning state-controlled media, willing to point out just how divided the Democrats are.
For instance, it was just last month recently appointed Democratic National Committee Vice Chairman Keith Ellison took it upon himself to blame former president Obummer for his party’s 2016 losses and not being a “better party leader.” And according to The Hill, while speaking at an event at the University of Minnesota, Ellison said, “Look I’m a great fan of President Obama … But Barack Obama could have been a better party leader, and I think the fact that he wasn’t put his legacy in jeopardy.” The devastation that took place in the Democrat Party across all levels of government is really nothing short of staggering. I won’t bore anyone by repeating the numbers, but the Democrat Party is now a shell of its former self and it’s all because of the man who so many had once viewed as being the second coming.
And then we have she who is the left’s progressive darling, Elizabeth Warren, who has also criticized Obummer’s “giant bling spots” in his communication with “most Americans.” And it was ‘Crazy Old’ Liz who, in a recent interview, said, “I think President Obama, like many others in both parties, talk about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but increasingly have giant blind spots.” And she went on to say, “That GDP, unemployment, no longer reflect the lived experiences of most Americans.” Liz also said she was “troubled” that Obummer received $400,000 to address a Wall Street conference on health care this fall. This all coming from someone who has on any number of occasions revealed herself to be little more than a complete fraud. A trait that seems to bother those in her home state very little.
And there’s the geriatric socialist, Bernie Sanders, who represents a prime example of the division between the Democrat Party’s Establishment and progressive wings. He too has blasted Obummer about his rather “distasteful” Wall Street speech. Speaking with the Communist News Network (CNN) just last month, Sanders said Obummer’s decision to take that opportunity was “not a good idea,” and that he was “sorry President Obama made that choice … I just think it is distasteful — not a good idea that he did that.” Weren’t these boobs paying the least amount of attention over the course of the last eight years, or were they just turning a blind eye because at least there was a Democrat in the White House. Obummer is simply proving himself to be the kind of guy that most of us on the right always knew him to be.
However, the party’s weakness becomes most evident when examining the tension that now seems to exist between DNC Chairman Tom Perez and Sanders. Just this week, the DNC snubbed Sanders and his supporters, arguing that the party did not owe them a “fair” 2016 primary process. Can you imagine? The Washington Examiner reported, “DNC lawyers argue that they don’t owe anyone a fair process, and that the rules in their charter are basically not binding in court. In fact, if they wanted, DNC attorney Bruce Spiva argued, they could choose their nominee in a smoke-filled back room and it still wouldn’t be legally actionable.” So why is it that any reasonably intelligent individual chooses to tolerate such arrogance? Or are they simply willing to overlook such behavior for what has become a growing list of ‘freebies’?
DNC Chair Tom Perez has also contributed to the party’s divisiveness by making pro-life Democrats feel unwelcome in the party. In a statement last month, Perez said, “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” adding that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should” share the “Democratic Party’s position on women’s fundamental rights.” In response, the Nebraska Democrat Party’s Chair Jane Kleeb called Perez’s comments “deplorable.” According to The Atlantic, Kleeb said, “Tom Perez put every Democrat who is leading our party at the nationwide and statewide level in a very difficult position” by issuing a statement “that is now being interpreted as him saying he does not accept pro-life Democrats in the party.”
As for Pelosi, members of her own party have called her “out of touch” with her Democrat base. And in a 2016 interview with CBS News’ Face the Nation, Pelosi said, “I don’t think people want a new direction.” And just this past November Rep. Cedric Richmond criticized Pelosi, suggesting her proposals to empower junior members of Congress, by making certain positions available only to lawmakers who have served fewer than three or four terms, while she and Reps. Jim Clyburn and Steny Hoyer remain in their current posts, could decrease the Congressional Black Caucus’s power while increasing her own. Richmond wrote, “The reality is that, from the perspective of the CBC, some changes may be beneficial while others may have severe unintended consequences that could diminish our power as a caucus within the Democratic Caucus.”
I think we can all agree that if there is one thing on which the Democrat Party stands united, it would the deep level of hatred that they have for America. A hatred, I dare say, that is possessed by nearly every single individual who identifies as a Democrat. There is that old adage, which I’m sure most as familiar with, which says, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” And I only bring it up in an effort to point out how there are essentially eight levels of control which must first be successfully obtained before one is able to create a Socialist/Communist state. And what I find to be rather striking, and more than a little frightening, is that there is a very clear similarity that exists between these eight levels of control and what has been consistently laid out in the platform of the Democrat Party, and for decades.
And if you don’t believe me, then compare for yourself:
1. Healthcare: “Control healthcare and you control the people.”
2. Poverty: “Increase the poverty level as high as possible.” Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3. Debt: “Increase the National Debt to an unsustainable level.” That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4. Class warfare: “Divide the people into the wealthy against the poor. Racially divide.” This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with full support of the voting poor.
5. Welfare: “Take control of every aspect of their lives” (Food, livestock, housing and income).
6. Education: “Take control of what people read and listen to (news media), along with control of what children learn in school.”
7. Religion: “Remove faith in God from the government and school.”
8. Gun Control: “Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government.” That way you are able to create a police state - total local control.
Pelosi is too narcissistic, senile or perhaps demented to look around and see that she has become irrelevant. Perez is so far to the left he can't stand up straight. And then there’s Ellison, a known Moslem and a vocal supporter of the Moslem Brotherhood. Sanders is 100% a Socialist as is Warren. The Marxist, Socialist/Progressive Democrat Party wants nothing more than to destroy the Union. Democrats and their judges choose which parts of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights they will obey. Obummer the community agitator operated the very same way. Their goal remains to get the majority of American citizens completely dependent on government. Leading to an Oligarchy destroying the sovereignty of American citizens. And it’s RINOs like Paul Ryan who are in lockstep with these very same vile Democrats.
Now where I do agree with Pelosi is when it comes to how the Democrats, unlike Republicans, ALWAYS stick together, no matter what. The Republicans rarely work together and are just as likely to work with Democrats as they are with anyone in their own party. Proof of that is seen in the recent spending bill just passed in the House where more Democrats voted in favor of it than did Republicans. And it’s the Republicans who are in control of House. Which provided us with yet another perfect example of how the Republicans were elected based almost solely on their false promises, and then almost immediately flip over to become Democrats once safely in office. Come 2018 conservatives must band together and get rid of many of these RINOs as possible and replace them with likeminded leaders.
And where Democrats are like pit bulls, who hang together and hang onto their focus, Republicans tend to be more like squirrels trying to decide whether or not to run across the road. And it’s even while in the minority that the Democrats have now chalked up three substantial victories: the blocking of two attempts at an immigration freeze in court and now this budget ‘deal’. Make no mistake, they are starting to rally. Vetoing the bill and raking up the wrongly adjudicated decision in the Supreme Court, AND looking for some body shots to Democrats is now in order. Sadly it looks to me as if the president is allowing the Democrats to appear stronger than they are, hopefully there will come a point where they will get a little overconfident reach for something he chooses not to allow them and WACK! We can only hope.
