Reports of Democratic demise are premature

On Sunday night, as Atlanta rolled up a 28-3 lead, a few Hillary supporters gloated because "their" team was ahead of Tom Brady's. He supported Trump and so he is now an enemy of the state.

They had learned nothing from Election Night, when they gloated about Hillary's imaginary lead.

Now at least one conservative already has forgotten the lesson from Sunday.

Columnist Stewart Lawrence at Daily Caller wrote:
Democrats May Be On The Verge Of Becoming A ‘Permanent Minority’ Party
Remember when Democrats predicted the imminent decline of the GOP?
The theory was that Republicans were so out of touch with women and ethnic minorities that they would soon be relegated to the status of a “permanent minority” — supported only by Southern white men and incapable of recapturing the White House.
Donald Trump’s victory has put an end to this fantasy. Now it’s the Democrats who are facing their own “doomsday” scenario.
A recent analysis conducted by Third Way — a self-described “centrist” think tank — argues that Democrats are evolving into a “coastal” party. They have strong bases in California, New York and Massachusetts but are slowly ceding the rest of the country to Republicans.
Now I have written about the Democratic Party's race problem. The party turned its back on the interests of the white middle class -- and then called them racist to boot.

Democrats have a White People Problem, which if they do not fix soon should spell trouble for them for a very long time.

Should.

Never underestimate the power of your side to self-destruct. Republicans must now prove to the people of the United States that they can govern.

Eight years ago, James Carville wrote: "40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation."



They got two years. In 2010, Republicans took back the House and we returned to divided government

He was 97% wrong.

And of course, in 1940, as Paris fell, Hitler said the Third Reich would rule for a thousand years.

Then came the Battle of Stalingrad.

Yes, Republicans are doing well.

But as Bill Belichick said after his Patriots won the Super Bowl: "As great as today is, in all honesty, we're five weeks behind 30 teams in the league in preparing for the 2017 season."

If you think he was kidding, you just may be a Browns fan.

"Trump the Establishment" is an account on how the Establishment used the media to stop the Trump Train in the general election by constantly badgering him on personal issues, often petty. But Trump prevailed based on his abilities as a CEO, and his stances on the real issues of the economy and national security, which I also delve into.

The book is available in paperback at Create Space, or if you prefer, Amazon.

Kindle will be available March 1.

This is the sequel to "Trump the Press," which covered the nomination. It is available on Kindle, or in paperback on Create Space or Amazon.

  3. Hubris. Classically followed by Nemesis.

    The Republicans are still the Stupid Party. The Dems remain the Evil Party. Evil will generally beat Stupid. But this time around, Trump upset everybody's apple carts, and beat them all, Evil and Stupid alike.

    If the Republicans don't realize this, then they're even stupider than usual.

    1. Hubris always invites Nemesis. I learned it from Victor Davis Hansen.
      Trump and his team KNOW that third parties are for losers. The answer is to co-opt and remake an existing party. The plan is well on track. I am in awe of the genius team he has assembled.

  4. Chicago gansta Rahm Emanuel was quoted this morning as saying 2018 is essentially lost, and it is now a "long game." I'm not exactly sure why the time dimension provides them hope of some sorts because the identitarian platform is a permanent one that fuels the cold civil war between plain folk and the coastal enclaves; It ensures more political failures for the later.

    Jesse James, at The Virginia Freman's Society, does a thought experiment:

    "If I walked into the crowd at Berkley a few days ago with a sign that said ‘I am _____.’ and asked the people to only fill in one thing, I would almost guarantee you it would be in identitarian terms. I am white. Therefore, I am responsible for slavery, famine, and probably eat children. I am male. Therefore, I am responsible for slavery, famine, the ‘gender wage gap,’ sexism, rape and probably eat children. When I was pulled from the womb I became guilty of all those things, despite never actually having committed them."

    Aunt Maud and uncle Cliff, in Polk County, MO are reminded of that almost nightly. And, they don't like it. They never will.

  5.

  6. Actually, the 2 parties are the Trump party and the Dr Evil party.

    The Demos are becoming the Alzheimer's and then you have the Ryan/McCain/Grahamnesty/Jeb/Kasich wing - which is the Benedict Arnold wing.

  7. For the life of me I don't understand what the democrats are fighting for. The stupid party now cannot repeal obamacare, they are against tax reform and they want a carbon tax. If the dems are capable of being smart, they would just let the stupid party advance the democrat agenda without a fight.

  10. The Belichick quote is applicable in many facets of life. I cannot underestimate the potential for a Democrat resurgence because many of my "educated" relatives are still petrified of President Trump and love all things Democrat, NBC news and CNN.

  11. Trump and Belichick share a trait in common, i.e., being very good in selecting players for their teams who can do a job the team needs to get done. But there are also big differences. First of all, Belichick walks the sidelines, not the field of play, and has a great field general in Tom Brady. And whereas Trump is a player, he has not yet shown he is as good playing quarterback and shredding the opposition as Brady is. Secondly, and more importantly, Trump is playing a game where the officials on the field, the judges, are actively and openly working for the opposing team. Every time Trump advances the ball a few yards down the field, the officials are going to call a penalty and place the ball 15 yards further back. Every time the ball is snapped, the Trump side will be called for illegal formation or offsides or pass interference or unsportsmanlike conduct. He'd better get used to it. On the immigrant ban, Trump is going to need a Hail Mary pass to score, because his running game is clearly not working, at least not when the game is being played against a Seattle team in the Ninth Circuit, where the judges are "homers."

  12. Voters are by nature fickle. People always want things to be better. After 8, 12, how ever many years a party can hold on to power, eventually a new generation of voters will believe the other party's promises and the pendulum will swing the other way.

  13. It is ridiculous say that the Left is a permanent minority party. 105 thousand votes in PA, MI and WI is all that separated a President Trump from a democratic president. So with the worst Democratic candidate in our lifetime, who obviously and openly lied to the American people about an illegal server and emails, a long history of scandals, and not only couldn’t be bothered to even try to get blue collar voters she was openly scornful of blue color workers. Instead of law and order blue color police, she had the mother of thug M Brown at her convention. She was actively trying to lose the blue color votes. And still Trump barely won—by 105 thousand votes out of almost 12 million votes! What happened is that with 8 years of actively working against the working/blue color voter, and openly campaigning to hurt them—they slightly understood by a thin thin margin.
    What scares me is that the democrats will wake up and realize they need the blue collar-Midwest votes and we will get someone like Bill Clinton in2020 who will “feel your pain” and along with lavish promises will take back the historically democrat voting Midwest. As long as the democrats are crazy and openly anti-white (whites need to shut up etc.) Trump can do okay, but hoping that the Democrats don’t nominate a sane candidate is a slim hope.

  14. P.T. Barnum is reported to have said, "There is a sucker born every minute. That means the communist party is replenishing at a rate of 525,600 idiots err voters per year. Add to that the number of illegals being given voter ID in commiefornia, and you see a resurgence in four years of 2 to 8 million voting demonicrats.

  15. The Republicans always seem to be way too willing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Trump is working his ass off, and when he gives us a positive, sustained economy with new jobs and school choice, he's going to start siphoning off a lot of those reliable black democrat-voting folks, and then the ballgame changes dramatically for the left.

  16. On the plus side, the D's are tripling down on the very behaviour that has resulted in their collapse.

    No introspection at all since the election.

    BUT, they still control a virtual monopoly on the MSM and our educational system (brainwashing our children from K to grad school), and are funded at double the level the R Party is.
