If they follow through on their plans to end the filibuster, pack the Senate by adding one to two new states, then pack the Supreme Court, and institute eco-fascism in the guise of the Green New Deal, America's status as a functioning constitutional republic will be at an end. Soon, the kind of people we fought wars to keep from taking power in America, will have the power.
The “Transition Integrity Project” provides a frightening glimpse into the minds of the Trump-hating left. They admit the likelihood of violence if they don't get what they want.
Americans are fair-minded people, even if not all of their elected representatives are. When properly apprised of the facts, they are bound to look at the articles of impeachment against Trump as deeply flawed and unfair according to long-held common values.
Well, 2018 is now in the books and surprise, we're all still here and doing OK. Trump is still President and it won't be a nuclear winter. There are no concentration camps filled with non-white slave laborers waiting to die at the hands of MAGA hatted stormtroopers
It used to be that both the major parties, Republicans and Democrats both wanted to do what is best for America given the framework of the Constitution and guided by the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence. They only varied on how best to accomplish this and how fast a pace we should take in changing things.
Although there are scores of pundits, celebrities and other talking heads who will try and convince you otherwise, here's a list of seven things that logic and clear thinking suggest won't occur in calendar year 2018...
If President Trump is correct, Obamacare will implode and the Democrats will have little choice but to join the effort to fix healthcare. Don’t count on them to bring conservative solutions to the table though. The problem for the Freedom Caucus if this happens will be to hold onto the concessions they gained during the last few days.
Drink every time any candidate breaks out into a coughing fit. (one drink per instance)
Drink at any remark that gets booed. (counts for moderator remarks too)
Drink every time the moderator “fact checks” a statement by one of the candidates.
I'm not his biggest fan, but Trump showed me something Wednesday. He showed me that he's willing to do the hard things, he's willing to put his candidacy on the line. Meanwhile, Hillary has been MIA for most of the past fortnight. She hasn't even gone to Louisiana after both Trump and President Obama went. Baton Rouge should be mostly dry by now, will she ever go?
The politics of division is the main weapon in the Democratic arsenal. Their strategy is simple: divide and conquer. They pick a voting bloc, along any lines it doesn’t matter, give them victim status then assign a villain. Then come the promises… Give the ‘victim’ a largess, and/or take punitive action against the alleged bad guy. The oppressor is always the larger party, usually they call them ‘big’ as in ‘big oil’, or ‘big pharma’, just so you know who to blame. As an aside, you’ll never hear reference to ‘big academia’ or ‘big government’ from the left as those are clients and are thus exempt.
