A Grotesque Political Party

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 6/14/2019 5:22:04 AM

The United States has a long tradition of reliance on a two-party political structure. For that structure to function effectively both parties need to be competent and responsible. Unfortunately, that is not the case now. The lineup of Democrat presidential candidates currently stands at 25 and growing. Conrad Black has aptly described them as “unelectable non-entities.” The long and growing list is more like a tower of babel than a collection of credible leaders. Evidence of that is that leading the race currently is former senator and vice president Joe Biden. Beyond the confines of the Democrat Party the reaction to Biden’s candidacy is typically, “Is this a joke?”

Sad, but so true... “The most incompetently managed, crime-ridden cities in the country are run solely by Democrats. If they can’t run cities why would anyone want them to run the country? Those cities should be seen as canaries in the coal mine.“

FTA "As Victor Davis Hanson wrote recently, “One way of envisioning the Democratic obsession with Trump is as an addiction.” Unfortunately, there are no rehab programs for political parties." Amen and why they need to be voted out of office! # 1 that is the money quote from the article and why anyone with a brain will vote for President Trump. Trouble is our education system run by Democrats is producing scarecrows with no brains! #2 is right Tony Sabell's comment at the end of the article is worth reading as is Arrest-George_Soros's comment!

Should a political party based on the Marxist principles of wealth confiscation and "redistribution", central planning, State control (of everything), compulsory "income equality" and collectivism over individualism - in other words, a political party that stands for shredding everything the Constitution stands for - even be allowed to exist in the USA? It's still a forbidden question, but never more relevant.

I'm with #6. For those old enough to remember, I'm reminded of a scene from old western movies, repeated many times -- The wagon train or stage coach is attacked by wild Indians (yes, I said it). One person, a man of the cloth or a do-gooder, suggests reason or a spirit of bipartisanship, stands to "connect" with them. Pincushion.

The way they parrot their talking points is barbaric acting like a pack of jackals spewing hatred and lies. They (politicians and media combined) remind me of the Charles Manson like cult of followers who will do anything they're told. I watched Pelosi trying to act with authority shaking her hand as she tried to accuse President Trump of blatant lies and innuendo. Then there's Chuck U Schumer and that slime ball Warner. They're not a party but a group of outlaws that need to be knocked down and defeated at the pols.

Back in 1828, John C. Calhoun created "The Nullifier Party" that lasted about 12 years! Basically the Nullifiers claimed states could "nullify" within their own borders any Federal law they didn't like --- specifically those concerning slavery. He had a number of supporters in both houses of Congress and large and wide support from local Southern citizens as well. It was as lunatic in its ideas as the modern Dem party. Hopefully, the modern party will be dissolved as well as this past reminder.

Very true. There were Dem presidents in the past that, while espousing wrong-headed policies, were not trying to undermine America and all she stood for. Along comes Hussein who wants to 'fundamentally transform' the country. If Biden somehow won, he would be a weak 1-term president desperately trying to appease the left wingers.

" For that structure to function effectively both parties need to be competent and responsible. Unfortunately, that is not the case now." A significant contributor to the failure of competence and responsibility is the abject failure of the media. It is their job to review and fairly critique political actions. Then, when stupid things are done by politicians, it is called out and addressed. Now, however, the media is like a parent with a spoiled child. Johnny is never wrong and becomes a foolish, rotten brat. So dems have the proposal of programs that spend trillions of dollars and no plan to pay for them and the media act as bobble heads. The nitwits on the Left seeing proposals by the dems and acceptance by media think this stuff can actually be done. "“One way of envisioning the Democratic obsession with Trump is as an addiction.” Unfortunately, there are no rehab programs for political parties" And, unfortunately, rehab has a dismally low success rate. A question you might ask, would you put a person suffering under addition into a highly responsible position, like running the Country?

If anything in the party's platform or actions violates our constitution, they should not be allowed in the halls of congress. The democrat platform and actions are in direct violation of our constitution and their individual oath of office. Purge the traitors from our government, and don't stop with congress - clean out the state department and dismantle the so-called united nations. It is time!

The dim party and its propaganda arm, the msm, are politically bankrupt. It's been the same talking points and policies for the last 75 years - pro choice (pro murder of the unborn), free health care, world with no borders, government for the people, anti-Semitic, social reform, women's rights, global warming, gun control, anti-Christian, etc. They think if they keep saying the same lies loud enough and long enough, the commoners will start to believe these as true. When you look at the dims and the left in general, you see individuals who aren't in control of their own lives. How can we expect such individuals to control our lives.

Racist Abortion Position

Imagine if Donald Trump announced he would change his longtime opposition to public funding of abortion in order to ensure that black, Hispanic, and poor women can abort their babies. Would liberals need even 10 seconds before foaming at the mouth screaming that he’s a racist? Last week in Atlanta, Joe Biden, Democrat presidential frontrunner for 2020, said: “For many years as a U.S. senator, I have supported the Hyde amendment as many, many others have because there was sufficient monies and circumstances where women were able to exercise that right [to abortion], women of color, poor women, women were not able to have access…. But circumstances have changed.” Thus, said Biden,
Feds to warn immigrants

Officers handling legal immigration cases will now warn people that they are under an obligation to support themselves rather than end up on the public dole, under a new policy implemented Friday by acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli. The warning will be issued both to the immigrant and his or her sponsor, who under the law has signed an agreement not to let the immigrant become a public charge. In the new warning, UCSIS officers will “remind” sponsors that they can — and now will — be asked to pay back “every dollar” of welfare that the immigrants take. “The president has made it a priority
New York City’s Shocking Abortion Plan 2 replies
Posted by MissMolly 6/15/2019 8:18:44 AM Post Reply
No wonder New York City’s latest move in respect of abortion was advanced “under the radar,” as the New York Times put it. The plan being hatched to start allocating taxpayer funds for abortions for poor women who travel here from other states may not, at least at the moment, involve a lot of money. It is, though, a shocking escalation in the population wars. The plan, according to the Times, which broke the story, is for the city to allocate $250,000 for abortions. The idea, the headline suggests, is to challenge conservative states that have been moving to curb abortions. The allocation from taxpayer funds would go to a charity,
Kellyanne Conway and the Hatch Act 8 replies

Presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway stands accused of violating the Hatch Act. The alleged violations consist mostly of comments Conway made on various news shows disparaging certain Democratic candidates such as Joe Biden, Cory Booker, and Elizabeth Warren. I very much doubt that the Hatch Act was intended to bar the president’s political advisers from criticizing potential opponents. The Office of Special Counsel (not to be confused with Robert Mueller’s former shop) is the outfit that found Conway guilty of Hatch Act violations and said she should be removed from her job. It describes the purposes of the Act as “to ensure that federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion,

Just what America has been clamoring for: the first face-to-face debate between Elizabeth Warren and … Amy Klobuchar? That’s what you’ve got, and you can thank the Democratic National Committee for that scintillating showdown. The DNC drew straws and Warren came out with the short one, forced to share the debate stage later this month with the likes of Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke and six other Dems with no chance of winning the nomination. It’s the kiddie table. Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, won the jackpot — front-runner Joe Biden. In what amounts to the varsity debate, Sanders and Biden will be facing off against Kamala Harris,

No President in history has taken a bigger financial hit by occupying the Oval Office than Donald J. Trump. The cost to him personally, and to his company in general, is astonishing and amounts to hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars in lost opportunities both at home and abroad; all of which is down to self-imposed regulation. And remember, he doesn't even take a salary. But he does it willingly and happily, because he wants to be the man who gets America back on track. He knows he can make a difference and he knows he can get things done. That's why he gave up his seat in Trump Tower

Sorry to hear that Sarah Sanders is stepping down as Trump’s press spokesperson. I think she has been the best press spokesperson in modern times, as she has the perfect combination of unflappability and contempt for the contemptible press corps. She always treated the press with the mien of a kindergarten teacher angry and disappointed with a bunch of unruly toddlers. But the daily press briefing has outlived its usefulness. It is now mostly a forum for TV personalities like Jim Acosta to preen and prance. I don’t blame her at all for stepping down now. Being press spokesperson is one of the most demanding

US President Donald Trump has caused a splash on Twitter after he tweeted to say he had met the "Prince of Whales". Mr Trump made the mistake, intending to refer to Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, in response to articles following an ABC news interview. He said he would listen if a foreign government gave damaging information about a political rival without necessarily reporting it to the FBI. In the tweet, he accused media reporting the statement of "fake news". (tweet) Mr Trump subsequently deleted his tweet and corrected his error. Referring to his recent UK state visit, the president initially wrote on Twitter: "I meet and talk to 'foreign governments' every day.

The series of town halls that Fox News is conducting for Democrat presidential candidates who take advantage of its generous offer of air time have been fairly interesting. Faced with moderators who do nor hug them the way Rachel Maddow did in a 2016 presidential debate, the strong ones have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills while the weak ones fall back on canned answers of dubious relevance to the questions asked. I was interested in seeing what Julian Castro had to offer yesterday at the town hall in Tempe, Arizona, where, we were told it was well over a hundred degrees outside.
