Impeach! Resign! Racist! Abuse of Power! This is all the Democrats know. There is no longer any such thing as a policy disagreement. Every action the President takes, whether they secretly agree with it or not, has to be condemned in the harshest terms. One example is the takin out of Solemieni. He was nothing more and nothing less than an enemy combatant in a war. A war declared on us by Iran. But the Democrats and much of the media have treated more a martyr than the vile, disgusting, murderous human being he was.
The latest meltdown is happening now over what in normal times would be a routine administrative function of the Attorney General. Roger Stone was prosecuted only because of his association with Donald Trump. The way he was arrested is typical of how the left likes to use an overwhelming show of force when it suits their purpose.
Mr. Stone posed no physical threat, but a heavily armed swat team showed up at his house like they were taking down Pablo Escobar. They also tipped off CNN so they could film how it took ten heavily armed paramilitary police troops to take down one unarmed older man and his deaf wife. This is the stuff of Klingon drinking songs. I think if anyone got a papercut doing the paperwork on this, they would have added assaulting a police officer to the charges.
After a rigged trial with an anti-Trump Judge and a virulently anti-Trump jury foreperson, Stone was convicted. No surprise here. That is what Kangaroo Courts are supposed to do. Unlike the one incompetently presided over by Nancy Pelosi, this one functioned as designed.
The prosecutors, drunk with power after foisting this charade on the court, decided to offer a sentencing recommendation of seven to nine years. This is triple what normal sentencing guidelines would justify. Attorney General Barr, in his function as the head of the Justice Dept and those prosecutors’ boss, wanted the recommendation to be more in line with legal norms.
It just so happens that on the night before Barr made public that he wanted a more reasonable sentencing recommendation, the President took to Twitter. In that tweet, President Trump expressed his displeasure with the seven to nine-year situation. The left lost its mind. Four prosecutors who disagreed with the decision of their boss resigned — good riddance, in my opinion. Pelosi and Schumer are clamoring for investigations and trying to take any opportunity they can to interfere with the 2020 elections. Not surprising when you consider the comedy of errors in their party as they fumble and stumble around for a leader.
As I write this, Joe Biden is in fifth place in New Hampshire. That is not good news for the Biden campaign nor the Democratic Party. No one expected the former Vice President to win Bernie Sander’s home state but a fifth-place finish? He is already having trouble raising cash. After this performance, Sleepy Joe might have difficulty raising dust. The media has already been writing Biden’s political epitaph, and they are just waiting for his doomed campaign to give up the ghost.
Mayor Pete and Amy Klobuchar are the flavors of the week coming out of New Hampshire. Of the two, Amy is by far the more palatable, but her staying power will depend on whether she can distinguish herself going forward as well as she did in the debate. Senator Klobuchar tentatively raised her hand to be the lone candidate to say that she did indeed have a problem with a Socialist heading the Democratic ticket. That gesture represented what many in her party are thinking but are too afraid of the far-left base to say. Her surge came right after the debate and that one small action was a big part of that, in my opinion.
The real winner last night, however, was not even on the ballot. He was not on the debate stage last week. Michael Bloomberg could not have had a better night. With no clear front-runner now the Democrats are looking at the very real possibility of a brokered convention. With moderates feeling disenfranchised and the far left feeling cheated once again by the DNC’s most significant problem might not be Donald Trump, but rather their voter turnout.
I know it’s been a tough week. The Senate refused to allow itself to be bullied into helping you to smear the President further. Adam Schiff revealed himself to be the goofball moron many already knew him to be. President Trump’s numbers continue to improve in the face of unrelenting criticism from Democrats and their partisan hack allies in the media. And then your parties showcase event for the week, the Iowa Caucus, has deteriorated into chaos and disarray. But pointedly tearing up your copy of the State of the Union Address was the act of a child and a poorly behaved child at that.
Nancy was not alone in her unprofessional and puerile behavior. There was, of course, the spectacle of all those ladies wearing white so that they could draw attention to themselves. This sea of white is the same silly tactic they used in the last SOTU. Narcissism aside, the Democrats might want to reconsider the optics of all these white-clad buffoons refusing to applaud for a scholarship granted to a young African-American girl simply because it was Trump who gave it. It was petty, infantile, and absurd, but it did reveal that Democrats are far more concerned with genuflecting before the Teachers Union than in doing anything to help the poor trapped in failing schools.
In the end, the Democrats continue to distance themselves from the very people they need to vote for them. No one expects the opposition applaud everything the President says, but the outright disrespect, not just for the office of the Presiden but on their own as well, is not lost on the American people. Some boycotted the speech, some walked out, and some just chose to be juvenile and myopic.
Folks, this is Wildwood, NJ. In January. This scene is deep in the heart of a reliably Blue State in January. Bi-partisan incompetence in the State House keeps the governorship see-sawing back and forth between the major parties, but it has been decades since NJ glowed red on presidential election night. These were not 100,000 diehard, redneck, good old boy, Texas Republicans. There had to be a lot of Democrats in that crowd. And that’s got to scare the powers that be in the Party to death.
For years I’ve heard so many people complain about the duplicitous nature of politicians, their saying one thing and doing another, their kowtowing to special interests and focus grouping almost every word they say. Whether you love him or hate him, you are paying attention you know precisely why you feel the way you do. This Video makes the point well, I think.
Condoleezza Rice shuts down NBC anchor’s question on whether Russia helped Trump winFormer Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told an NBC anchor Wednesday it was not accurate to suggest that Russia flipped the 2016 election in President Trump’s favor.
“I don’t think there is any evidence of that. And, you know, I really don’t think that’s a good conversation to have,” she told NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie
. Guthrie had just asked whether Russian interference “actually worked” and blocked a victory by former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Her ignorance on law and just basic civics is just mind boggling. I really can’t wait for her first – and most likely last – primary. If you are a Democrat with political aspirations you do not want to make an enemy of the power brokers in your own party like Nancy Pelosi.
