Impeachment is not why Democrats will lose



Impeachment alone does not doom Democrats in 2020. Their ideas also doom them. Their candidates espouse ideas that not only are contrary to the American experience, but contrary to the American ideals.

The primary anti-American idea Democrats espouse is the confiscation of guns. Both Beto O'Rourke and Eric Swalwell made this a major part of their campaign, with the latter flashing our nuclear capabilities as a warning to anyone who would dare defy such an order.

The Second Amendment enforces the First.

Democrats plan to neutralize the First with a ban on hate speech and Beto's call to tax churches.

Next up is reparations to African-Americans for a slavery that ended 154 years ago. Reparations are a repudiation of Martin Luther King's vision of a colorblind society in which all men are equal.

The purpose of Democrats is to divide our nation based on pigmentation and other superficial genetic differences.

This is followed by the promotion of transgendering elementary school-aged children to the opposite sex. This is part of the Democrat Party's promotion of sexualizing children. Too many powerful Democrats boarded Jeff Epstein's Lolita Express to Pedo Island for it not to reflect on the party itself.

Elizabeth Warren meanwhile wants to confiscate the wealth of "billionaires," which she defines as anyone worth $50 million -- or 1/20th of a billion.

Don't worry. Over time that number will drop to whatever your savings have.

With every candidate supporting the elimination of private health insurance in favor of government control of health care, Bernie Sanders find himself out-flanked on his left and separated from his base.

However, he was able to move even further left.

Fox News reported, "Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Thursday released a sweeping immigration plan that would impose a moratorium on deportations, 'break up' existing immigration enforcement agencies, grant full welfare access to illegal immigrants and welcome a minimum of 50,000 'climate migrants' in the first year of a Sanders administration.

"The plan effectively establishes Sanders at the far left of the immigration debate, as he aims to energize a base that helped drive his 2016 primary campaign amid competition from other liberal candidates in the field this time around."

Climate refugees!

That phrase combines the Democrat call for open borders with the voodoo science of global warming.

How clever.

And how stupid.

Americans are not going for this.

In 1972, Democrats ran a more likeable candidate than President Nixon -- and they lost 49 states to 1 because their socialist ideas were too foul.

In 2016, Republicans managed to find the one man in America less liked than the Wicked Witch of the west -- and they won because his ideas appealed to Americans: America first foreign affairs, closing and walling off the Mexican border, re-negotiating bad trade deals, liberating us from bureaucrats, tax cuts, and draining the swamp.

That was a huge order. He is delivering.

The press covers the horse race of polls and primaries spiced with what are laughingly called debates. The media ignore the policy debate.

But voters listen. Ideas matter. They are voting for an American president. They expect him to be American.

    1. In 2008, we were expunging white guilt.

      In 2012, we supported civility.

      In 2016, we stopped believing the conventional wisdom. We realized that the RaceCard is worn and floppy, and that civility in response to intellectual dishonesty is counterproductive in the defense of liberty.

      In 2020 ... we see the results of our choices in 2016, and not only do we want more of the same ... more of us want more of the same.

      Though, admittedly, there are still too many - particularly among the young - who are stuck in the stupid of the pervasive-racism narrative and the importance of a President acting "Presidential" ... more than acting effectively to secure life and liberty.

  9. So ... Why hasn't anyone suggested reparations for the descendants of those who were killed fighting for the North during the Civil War. These brave men FOUGHT AND DIED to end slavery, but no one today seems to want to acknowledge their sacrifice.

    1. "...[N]no one today seems to want to acknowledge their sacrifice." That aggravates the hell out of me. Name me another country whose bloodiest war consisted of the ethnic majority fighting itself largely for the benefit of an ethnic minority. Are we perfect? No. But we're a damn sight better than the left teaches our children.

  10. Don, the real problem is that conservatives ceded the education system to Leftist 50 years ago. That chicken is now coming home to roost as we're now on our 2nd generation of citizens that have been taught that socialism is the best form of government. If we don't retake education now, in 20 years our children & their children will enact the socialist agenda that Leftist have been working on achieving for 100 years. It might be too late now.

    1. Leftist education is a perpetuating factor, but it is also a symptom of a way of thinking that has been with us for more than a century now.

      Changing that way of thinking has to go well beyond changing the schools, in order for the change to be sustained ... so we don't still end up in the ruins of Utopia.

    2. The keystone for change is the judiciary. We must have a constitution supporting judiciary before we can change. Lawfare is real and many of our problems were created from lawfare from the Progressives. Education is a prime example. A first grader who draws a gun on his tablet will be kicked out of school... That kind of crap has to stop.

  11. It feels to me as though the Democrat candidates for President are not trying to advance reasonable policy ideas. They are trying desperately to get the electorate's attention... and they're willing to say anything, do anything, to get it.

    This is desperation. Worse for them, it's not working.

    The desperation will continue. The October surprises are going to be EPIC.

  12. Actually, America generally liked Trump, especially among the Democrats, prior to him running for President as a Republican.

    Then the Democrat propagandists called the media peddled lies, rumors, and innuendo about Trump.

    Of course, Obama's admin along with some Republicans like McCain attempted to interefere with Trump's campaign. Those efforts are still ongoing in a treasounous coup that even some military officers are getting in on it.

    Betcha dollars to doughnuts that Lt Col Vindman was the source for the spy Charlie's hearsay complaint. Moreover, from his own testimony, he defied the president and took it upon himself to advice a foreign government to go against the president,

    Vindman did it because Trump's foreign policy was not his foreign policy and the foreign policy of many other like minded government employees.

    So, when you go from being a celebrated Democrat with no slurrs of racism, bigotry, sexism, etc being made to being a rapist Hitler KKK Grand Cluck, that means you strayed from the plantation, you are now a heretic, an apostate, and must be beheaded as an example.

  16. 1. If illegals did not vote.
    2. If the dead stayed in their graves and didn’t vote.
    3. If the voter rolls were clean and only those eligible voted.
    4. If boxes of ballots found in closets, car trunks, and bathrooms were excluded.
    5. If the Electoral College was not subverted.
    6. If voters were protected from intimidation.
    7. Finally, if Antifa and the usual hooded and sheeted Democrat mobs did not use violence as they are now threatening but accepted the outcome of a clean election. They won’t. There will be violence.

  17. I agree that the Dems are just trying to draw some attention to themselves, as Trump inhales all the air in the room. I thought somewhat the same about Trump before he was nominated - that he was just a finger thrust in the eye of the establishment by frustrated conservatives. But Trump turned out to be an 800-pound gorilla that knew karate. The Dems don't have anyone even close.

  19. Don, I hope you're right, but I wish you and others writing similar tracts would stop making the comparison to the McGovern wipeout of 1972. That was 48 years ago and in case you haven't noticed, it ain't 1972 any more.

    We have an far more radical and non-white electorate than we had then. Hence victories of such as Keith Ellison, Jared Polis, Ilhan Omar, various radical big city mayors and councils, and now even Chesa Boudin as SF DA.

    If I were betting on the outcome, I'd still put my money on Trump and vote for him enthusiastically, but I wouldn't bet a whole lot.

    There is soo much probable cause out there, that the only reason people like Brennan, Comey, and et al have not been arrested is due to political concerns.

  21. I don't always comment, but when I do I dowd


    Bloomy on the Brink! More at 11

    Thus the headline of The Diva Maureen opinion column.

    Someone once called her a weather vane. And Weather vain she is. Still she is an institution at the Times. and dowdy though the gray lady is. She still has some treasures in her cupboard

    Dowd is one of those. She even has a Trump supporting Brother so she says. But like most Left Coasties I think she made him up

    In any case she says "Blooberg is on the Brink"

    Which if you read between the lines really means "Bloomy takes a pass".

    It's a bit too late to enter the chess board right now. Everyone knows it we are 2 months away from Iowa. And... Iowa MUST matter. because TV ratings right?

    I love how someone wrote a piece putting out that Bloomberg would enter by bypassing Iowa and New Hampshire... yeah right.

    But what is very VERY interesting is that the Dems Know KNOW that they are in trouble. The money men (aka friends of Gates) say Warren will not get their money. The media says Biden has a Ukraine up his Hunter backside. And Butt-joke is a mayor.. not an NYC mayor. A MAYOR from somewhere people can't even place on a map!

    So Bloomy won't run. The Dowd doth say.

    Bloomy can do math. Billionaire vs Billionaire means that Bloomy can't outspend Trump.

    100s of millions spent and Bloomy gets to even par with a Presidential incumbent who can draw stadium crowds.

    Bloomy knows he can't beat Trump therefore he won't try. This is all a tease to see if 2024 is possible IF the Dems are that desperate. Which they won't be. They will be trotting out Newsom then.

    Could Bloomy be another McCain ever the Bridesmaid never the Bride?

  22. I do think the impeachment effort, which is just a continuation of the coup attempt, has the effect of pissing off his supporters, as well as pissing off some who might not have voted for him, but can see this for what it really is. A motivated base and independent voters who don't like the corruption found in the left adds to the number of voters, possibly enough to counter the voter fraud.

  24. Donald Trump only became "less liked" when he declared for president. Prior to that he was the toast of the town in Noo Yock and most everywhere else. That's because the Donald is likable. He treats people straight up, showing them respect no matter their station in life. Contrast that with the withering condescension normal in the rest of the "elites."
