Victor Davis Hanson on the American Left War of Trump Derangement

What Is the Alternative to Trump Derangement?

by Victor Davis Hanson at National Review:

“If they weren’t trying to destroy the president, Democrats would have to focus on an agenda most Americans don’t support. By 1968, voters had tired of the failed Great Society of Lyndon Johnson. Four years later, the 1972 Nixon reelection re-emphasized that a doubled-down McGovern liberalism was even less of a viable agenda. In that context, in 1974, obsessing on Watergate and a demonized Nixon were wise liberal alternatives to running on a positive left-wing vision, given the growing conservative backlash of the 1970s. After Watergate and the Ford pardon, Jimmy Carter squeaked to a close victory and a one-term presidency — before the country tired of his strident liberalism poorly cloaked in conservative clothing. Bill Clinton’s third-way centrism eventually was a winning Democratic alternative to regain the presidency — albeit with help from two Ross Perot third-party candidacies. Given these historical reminders, the current efforts at Trump character assassination may be the best — or only — progressive pathway back to political power. In the last few days, the Democratic party lost its fourth special House election; most of the four were billed in advance as likely negative referenda on the contentious first six months of the Trump presidency. Post facto, the uniformly unwelcomed results were written off as idiosyncratic outliers of no importance. Shortly before the Georgia election, a hard-left-wing killer attacked the players at a congressional baseball practice, intent on the assassination of Republican legislators, whom he had targeted on his hit list. The shooter was foiled, but not before seriously wounding Steve Scalise, the current Republican majority whip in the House. The two events in saner times might have prompted introspection about why the Democrats keep losing elections and why a hard-core progressive supporter would seek to assassinate key Republican leaders. Indeed, for a brief moment, there were calls on both sides of the aisle to scale back inflammatory rhetoric that in theory might push such politicized would-be shooters over the edge. One might have hoped that self-reflective Democrats could begin to grasp why voters distrusted them more than they feared Trump. Such moments quickly vanished. Progressives saw any remedies to identity politics as worse than the disease of electoral defeat. Elizabeth Warren, with her trademark rancor, was once again talking about Republican “blood money” — as if her opponents in the Congress were legislative assassins rather than the recent targets of such. An increasingly addled Hillary Clinton (she had loudly joined the “Resistance”) accused the GOP of becoming the “death party,” reminding the country why progressive fanatics such as James Hodgkinson might think rifle fire is the only answer to conservatives who traffic in blood. Meanwhile, another day, another Hollywood celebrity dreaming of, or advocating, the assassination of Donald Trump: This time a disturbed Johnny Depp (playing the role of Kathy Griffin or Snoop Dogg) mused out loud about repeating a John Wilkes Booth–style shooting. Since January, left-wing pundits and celebrities have alluded that Trump might be decapitated, stabbed by a mob, shot, punched, hit with a bat, blown up, strung up, and flipped off. Incineration and drowning are about the last modes of Trump mayhem left unsaid. Barack Obama, amid the assassination chic and the obscenity of key Democrats such as Kamala Harris, Tom Perez, and Kirsten Gillibrand, recently remonstrated about the evils of inequality and the need for more diversity — at $10,000 a minute to largely white, Wall Street audiences, while whining about the ongoing recalibration of his failed Obamacare project.

That is what passes for 21st-century progressive community organizing. Left unsaid was that Obama had virtually destroyed the Democratic party, which during his tenure lost more than 1,000 state and local elections and both the House and the Senate. Obama left a personal legacy of a party agenda that had no popular support, an incoming Republican presidency, a conservative Supreme Court, a tenure to be systematically overturned, and a one-time progressive electoral paradigm that could work only for himself while imploding almost any other candidate foolish enough to try to replicate it. And progressives oddly loved him for all that. Of the Democratic policies once envisioned under Bill Clinton, few are left. It is said that Democrats are in an existential crisis because of their obsessions with Donald Trump — suing over the election, trying to subvert the Electoral College, dreaming of impeachment and the 25th Amendment, filing briefs under the emoluments clause of the Constitution, stalling appointments, relying on deep-state insurrectionary bureaucrats, cherry-picking liberal judges for obstructive passes, and going from one conspiracy theory to the next as collusion begat obstruction that begat witness tampering.

More outsider advice is for Democrats to focus instead on their agenda. But nothing could be more paradoxical. Or rather, what agenda? Of the Democratic policies once envisioned under Bill Clinton (opposing illegal immigration, dreams of abortions as rare, balanced budgets, workfare, being tough on crime), few are left. In other words, progressives logically obsess about Trump, because otherwise they would have to defend agendas that most Americans simply do not support. Do voters really wish to hear that illegal immigration is healthy and that the greater problem lies with us (the paranoid host) rather than the millions who knowingly cross the border illegally? Would Americans wish to be lectured about transgendered restrooms by those who as late as 2011 opposed gay marriage? Do voters think that progressive administrators, whiny indebted students, and the end of campus free speech and free assembly are models for higher education and arguments for federal bailouts? Do voters really wish to hear that illegal immigration is healthy and that the greater problem lies with us (the paranoid host) rather than the millions who knowingly cross the border illegally? (Most Americans believe that there is no such thing as an “undocumented immigrant,” given that most illegal aliens in fact possess ample documentation — albeit false social-security numbers, false IDs, and occasionally false names. “Falsely documented immigrants” is the more intellectually honest rubric.) Do voters wish to hear from those who doubled the debt in eight years that Trump, after six months, is fiscally reckless? Are they tired of “make America great again” and “our farmers,” “our veterans,” and “our miners,” and prefer instead another “you didn’t build that” sermon or a finger-pointing “now is not the time to profit” scold? Is snarky anti-American sloganeering preferable to honest pro-American mantras? Perhaps Trumpian triumphalism has embarrassed voters and they yearn for a return to progressive apologetics — they’re nostalgic for another Cairo speech from Obama, or more ceremonial bows to foreign leaders, or more outreach to the Cubans and Iranians? Do they want to be told that Trump’s efforts on deregulation, jobs, and energy won’t work by those who could not achieve a single year of 3 percent annual GDP growth over eight years? What otherwise would fill the progressive void, if Democrats were not currently obsessed with Donald Trump? Advocating more illegal immigration, more entitlements, and fewer voter-identification requirements to continue to alter the demographics of voting? Expanding food-stamp and disability rolls? Higher health-care premiums and deductibles?

Would Democrats run on their opposition to the sudden Trumpian use of words such as “radical Islam,” “jihadism,” and “terrorism”? Are there too few abortions in America? Would they trash Trump for suggesting that “all lives matter” or that newcomers to the U.S. should avoid the welfare rolls for five years? Would those be more winning issues than the current obscenity, conspiracy theories, and assassination chic? Would Democrats instead run on a more resonant foreign policy? Perhaps advocacy of a 2.0 reset with Putin to recalibrate the appeasement of Russia? Or a doubling down on the Iran Deal to allow more “latitude” to the Khomeinist autocracy? Should the downward defense budget descend to 2 percent of GDP? More stringent rules of engagement for our troops on the ground? Should more identity-politics activists on cable TV wish more often for the death of Representative Scalise, or urge people of color to let such conservative whites bleed in extremis, or certainly not lament the targeted, given that they supposedly got what they deserved?

In general, are we in need of more ethnic, religious, and racial separatism, a greater investment in the progressive salad bowls than the ossified traditional melting pot? Do we need more trilling of our names, more accent marks sprinkled over our nomenclature? Should Democrats, the party of youth, vigor, hip, cool, hope, and change, simply forget Trump and instead showcase their dynamic leadership and forward-looking activists: a 69-year-old Hillary Clinton, an 84-year-old Dianne Feinstein, a 79-year-old Jerry Brown, a 77-year-old Nancy Pelosi, a 75-year-old Bernie Sanders, a 74-year-old Joe Biden, a 68-year-old Elizabeth Warren, or a young 66-year-old Chuck Schumer? Or should a next generation of minorities and women now take over the reins from ossified progressives — such as an obscenity-shouting Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, or Tom Perez?

Does Keith Ellison offer the proper agenda and background profile for national progressive exposure? Should more Pajama Boy candidates such as Jon Ossoff be recruited to highlight the big-city, hip, metrosexual core of the Democratic party? If freed from the Trump obsessions, would progressives make great inroads by renouncing increased oil and gas production through fracking and horizontal drilling, all while they re-up Solyndra-like projects, shut down the Keystone and the Dakota Access pipelines, and hope, as did former secretary of energy Steven Chu, that energy prices rise so that subsidized wind and solar will be more viable? Would they run on discouraging thousands of new jobs in the petrochemical, aluminum, and fertilizer industries, given that such companies are relocating to the U.S. to capitalize on its cheap energy? The Democrats are now a pyramidal party — ethnic-identity groups at the base and wealthy elites on top, all united by a mutual disdain for the half of the population that covers 85 percent of the geography. The point is that somewhere between 2006 and 2009, Bill Clinton’s formerly competitive Democratic party aged and then evaporated. It was replaced by a hard-left coastal coalition, a pyramidal party — ethnic-identity groups at the base and wealthy elites on top, all united by a mutual disdain for the half of the population that covers 85 percent of the geography. What followed were universities, Hollywood, the media, and the wealthy damning supposed “white privilege” (a phrase rarely spoken outside of university ethnic-studies departments prior to 2009), as those who did not have privilege were damned by those who most certainly did.

So the Democrats logically grew hysterical over Trump because they had few choices other than a rescue through a Watergate-like crisis. Democrats forgot the unprecedented conditions that brought a hard-left icon such as Barack Obama into power in 2009: an orphaned election without a run by an incumbent president or vice president, the largest fundraising in presidential history, unprecedented media bias, the anger over the Iraq War, the panic over the September 2008 Wall Street meltdown, the novelty of the first African-American president, the weakness of the McCain candidacy, and the media demonization of incumbent George Bush. They also ignored that the Obama agenda after 2010 was relegated to executive orders and treaties abroad that bypassed the Senate, because it had lost public and legislative support. Today progressives revere the rarity of the left-wing presidency of Barack Obama despite its failures and what it did to the Democratic party — and with the full realization that Obama’s electoral formula and his agenda are not inheritable. Given those realities, Trump Derangement is not a misappropriation of progressive resources. Instead it is logically the chief and only viable message that the current Democratic party has left.

Feminism’s Biggest Communist Donkey Tale……Human Males and Females Are Equal, i.e…the same!

Yes, it is true, that in our “United” states of America, its Democrat fascist Left insists, indoctrinates, preaches and teaches at college,  that  all human animals are equal…PERIOD….and therefore, should be MADE equal!  Some in this grouping are “praying”, no conniving,  for open sex forever with whomever, to prove this political, religious, social, animal ‘right’.

The ‘samer’ everyone is, the easier it is for fascists of all sexes, races, shapes and sizes to govern and make the human male do as HE is told…..VOTE FASCIST-SOCIALIST FOR ETERNAL EQUALITY!

I am a white approaching my 83rd birthday as a white….a male one, a child of the second world war, who came  to stand six feet tall and officially served his country in the army but never quite had the opportunity to do so heroically.

Contrary to our America’s  contemporary university  leftist religion, my father was decidedly male, my Mother decidedly  female…..he 5’10 in domestic stature; she 5’3.  He smoked in public….She smoked only occasionally, and  in bathroom when needed to  correct a certain  aroma.   He was a pharmacist, owning a small corner drug store in St. Paul, Minnesota.    She was born to be beautiful, charming,  athletic, sharp, ambitious, hysterical only when needed, and loved by all……totally female, not diseased or trained by fascist feminism.

They  met in the early 1920s in  downtown St. Paul when ballroom dancing competition was a rage.   Both were gifted athletically.   He was born and raised on a farm in Hope, North Dakota…..land  his own Dad, born before the Civil War began, and raised in coastal  Cherryfield, Maine,  had ‘homesteaded’ around 1873.  He was the third or fourth male child in a wealthy family where primogeniture was still  practiced, and so, left Maine alone  on horseback  to go West, homesteading  an acre somewhere near the Sheyenne River fifty miles  west of Fargo, North Dakota.

Somewhere in my house I own a post card, dated 1874, a photo of this 17 year old lone traveler going West, my grandfather, sent from Chillicothe, Ohio,  to his ‘family’ back in Cherryfield with  note….”Mother, I’m fine….Frank.”

My parents were adults.  Our neighbors were all adults.  Women were adult women, men were men as adults.  They made me adult.   My in-laws made my wife of 34 years, a Democrat woman,  a  female and adult.  My neighbors in St. Paul, Minnesota where I was raised, were adults.   NO ONE WAS ON WELFARE!  They went to “Church” instead.

American females no longer speak ‘adult’.   Nearly all of the girls and women of my first forty years  spoke elegant female “Joan Crawford” or “Betty Davis”….a movie and radio influence, no doubt.   When outdoors in those days  they dressed elegantly  as well.   Movies were censored to uplift the human soul….assuming from their JudeoChristian teachings, we humans possess  souls to counteract the animal in us.

Fox News pretends to be conservative…and, unlike majority  leftist  lines of aural communication,  such elegance does occasionally occur.  For ratings it prefers to show off female legs than cultivate female verbal and nasal excellence of  Betty Davis years.

Among leftists who today  control nearly all  of America’s means of  communication ,  whiners, such as those in the photo above are encouraged to demonstrate woe and sufferings, programmed leftists of all groups and sexes to show ‘feelings’.    They  have learned in school to be made jealous, powerful,  angry, to feel abused by males of today and ‘his’ history, and yet show ‘hurt’ when needed, remain childlike both  male or female, to weep or curse, whatever is politically needed.

National Communism, the cancerous leftist religion  of forced equality, has threatened  our America primarily through its Democrat Party, its leftist schools and universities, its newspapers, television news units, its entertainment industry, its open borders, its  criminals, its religion called atheism.   It teaches, pretends there is no difference whatsoever between the human he and the human she…or else!

I still  work outdoors….as a teacher, explorer, a planter, an artist, a landscaper, a JudeoChristian American and struggling businessman.   I ‘build’ beautiful grounds, something very foreign to forced equality socialist Americans these days….especially among the nation’s Democrat  Jewish clans who consider outdoor labors beneath the character of real people.

Adulthood doesn’t seem to enter the leftist American university ‘mind’ these days.  It is world for children such as the well dressed  weepers shown above  at  Ossoff  headquarters the night this leftist “he” fell short of representing in Congress a district in which he did not live.

Truth never matters among feminists….in fact, it’s such a pest, Obamaling Democrats from coast to coast are trying to ban it.  Children are so much easier to control than adults….

Why is it the human female animal almost automatically  turns to scream when faced with sudden shocking noises suggesting danger?

It is the tribal animal in her, countless hundreds of thousands of years in her genetic material.  She  is announcing to a tribal  human male or the tribe members  somewhere nearby,  she is in trouble and needs help.   Conservative women, usually JudeoChristian ones at that, do understand the basic differences between human female and human male animals.

Feminists do not, for feminism is a religion based upon politics and emotion.

And the  typical  animal response from a husband or adult son, or perhaps any ‘normal’ Godfearing male would be what if his space has been invaded by some strange growl followed by  female screams?

In my life time, it used to be the  automatic animal  shout, “SHUT UP” to the screamer…..the human  male animal instinct to discover the degree of  danger, to  himself and/or his clan,  the degree of  danger he or they face to fight or flee for survival.

I have in my lifetime attended dozens of Democratic election night political rallies until November, 1980, and Republican ones ever since, some won, some losers.  I never saw a weeping eye in any of these crowds.  Adult Americans wouldn’t act so childish.

On November 8, 2016 at  Hillary Clinton political headquarter, weepers began their crying roughly when Ohio went Republican.   They crying increased nearly all night long when human male Donald J. Trump was edging closer and closer to become America’s 45th President.

Fascists prefer children over adults.

The tell-tale picture above showing feminists in deep thought problem solving, is from an “opinion” article by New York Times comic, Maureen Dowd this past week.

 

 

 

Watch Fired FBI Director Comey’s Testimony Here

I didn’t have an opportunity to watch the political  leftist arranged television event today starring former FBI director, James Comey…..the one newly elected President Donald J. Trump fired recently…..the one Democrats hated for sniping publicly about one of countless Hillary crimes while running for the American Presidency, the one she and all of her devoted racists and feminists felt she deserved for being Hillary.

I had to go to work.

On my way to work, and until 11AM I caught the event on radio.

Our American deviates in Washington, the  Axis concocted by Hillary sore losers,  Chas  Schumer deviates, you know the creepier Al Franken types, the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, CBS, NBC, MNBC and nearly all of the rest of the media including Fox on a bad day;   the new leftier klutzes causing American President Donald J. Trump trouble in Washington.  I follow American national politics closely…and have so since the Dewey-Truman presidential campaign in 1948.  (It sure beats going to the horse races.)

I admit I love our American 45th President.   I love him for his obvious traits and gifts…and his honesty according to what he sees and senses.  He loves his country.  He sees it, knows it is in financial and moral decay.

We haven’t had a really gifted and astute, uplifting  President during  my life with the exception of  Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy,  and Ronald Reagan.  Worse, the country was profoundly struck down by American hater, racist, feminist, open borders for illegal voters foreigner Barack Hussein Obama for the past eight years of national disorder and decline.

Best of all, Donald J. Trump is an American non-politician.   He’s “Ugely” American bright….and the fascist-feminists leftist hounds controlling  our today’s  education world hate him  and all the rest of us over age 60 as well who aren’t drugged by the glory of ignorance, atheism,  and meaningless unemployment.

THE COMEY PERFORMANCE

Mr. Comey seemed a good man….a gentle man…..or perhaps not quite a man, but rather a boy scout determined to do good by obeying Obama’s urban  scoutmasters……a  2017 man, that is, not quite a man at all.   Gentle, plotting, polite, shy-pretending, a person who loved his job station in life…..an almost man, a bureaucrat who wanted to do good to honor his name….an almost man who had worked in the political maneuvering world all of his adult life, who tried to do good so others would know him as good.

And then along comes businessman, Donald J. Trump winning a presidential election beating the  government establishment, the Hillary establishment, the newsprint establishment, the television news establishment, the leftist college urchins without knowledge and careers, countless  programmed black racists, 12,000,000 illegal voting immigrants….some less illegal than others whose arrivals were all seen by leftist fascists as  votes for their inevitable forever dictatorship  future.

Business man Trump is hated by countless Republicans as well….news industry people.   His  nose isn’t sufficiently perfect for the manikin they could display as their toady.   Mr. Trump reeks leadership.  He builds towers, golf courses, skating rinks.  He likes people.  He is a Republican who  loves his country and is fed up with those GOPers who have colluded with   leftist leaches draining our America of blood for more than a decade in  the name of the  gods of global warming, sanctuary cities,  brainless screamy coeds, and Windy City urban murderers.

Be sure to enjoy this spectacle presented below….how these Democrat vermin and their Republican compatriots welcomed President Donald J. Trump to the 45th presidency of these “United” states of America to solve our nation’s countless problems…..

GOD BLESS PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP and Marco Rubio!

Putting Whining Democrats in Their Place!….by Rabbi Dov Fischer

Finally: Time for Trump to Put Whining Democrats in Their Place

By Rabbi Dov Fischer  at American Thinker:

“In the synagogue business, the few rabbis who are unfortunate enough to practice at one of the few undesirable congregations with grumbling and carping congregants (probably not at all different from what some similarly unfortunate pastors encounter among those outlier church flocks pocked with sociologically pathological congregants) are told that nothing puts the grumbles to an end like a successful building campaign.  Just get everyone absorbed with raising funds and building something – anything: a wing, an annex, a revamp of the whole building, a re-furnishing of the sanctuary…just get them all busy on a project, building something, doing something.  Keep them busy with something constructive, and they will stop grousing.

We call it the “Edifice Complex.”

No fair observer can doubt that President Trump is a victim of a merciless witch hunt, with no end in sight until he is back hosting The Apprentice.  Remarkably, his approval ratings remain steady around 39 percent, the same number from before “Comey” this and “Flynn” that, before head counts at inaugurations and leaked phone calls to Australian and Mexican heads of government.  All the witch-hunting has solidified his base, and it has moved mild supporters into his camp.  Recently, Ann Coulter titled a weekly column “Every Time I Try to Be Mad at Trump, the Media Pull Me Back.”

Amen.

As the president continued his travels abroad from the respective centers of the world’s three most influential religions to NATO world leaders, the media followed, seeking to portray him as a rube on foreign affairs, much as they have tried to depict him on domestic matters.  We needed not doubt that, by the time he returned, the left-Democrat “Resistance” and their media stooges would be accusing Trump of having sown discord abroad, even as his supporters exhaled with joy that, finally, a strong voice of American pride had traveled overseas to assert American greatness.

The media loved the Obama model for world leadership.  In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, send John Kerry to France with James Taylor singing “You’ve Got a Friend.”  Obama meeting with Russians, asking them to tell “Vladimir” that Obama will cut sucker deals that hurt America after he gets re-elected.  Obama going to England and shocking the British public by continuing to ramble into a microphone while the orchestra deferentially played “God Save the Queen” in Elizabeth’s presence.  Obama going to Communist Cuba and dancing the salsa in front of Castro.  And always, everywhere, apologizing for America and promising to cut America down to size so that we no longer tower over Europe and Asia and Africa and the Middle East.

I prefer a “rube” like Donald Trump, who leads from the front, drops a MOAB explosive on an ISIS hideout and terror base in Afghanistan that had been a mountain earlier in the day, and orders 59 cruise missiles launched into Syria to enforce a red line against poison weapons that he does not even have to warn about.

Now that he has returned home, the president should turn his attention to the Edifice Complex.  His administration needs to get moving on some serious legislation.  He has done great with executive orders and Cabinet and court appointments, but the time now is for some solid legislation, some real building.  He is way behind on filling scores of open federal district judgeships and openings in the federal judicial appellate circuits.  If he would only get those seats filled with the kind of judges he wants, he and the Republicans actually would start winning more federal case appeals, and justice would move back from the Obama imbalance.  Similarly, it is time for legislative initiatives like tax reform.  Once he and the GOP start getting some “building campaigns” going – health care something-or-other, real tax reform, some construction going on the border, infrastructure work – people will become engaged in that and see “stuff” happening.

It works in churches; it works in synagogues.  Get started on building some of that wall. There is nothing like a building campaign.  Maybe even sell plaques for donors to put their names on: “This brick donated by Sadie and Izzy Feldstein.”

The Democrats have not been this angry since the Republicans took away their slaves.  They aim to tie up the president with one nonsensical non-scandal after another.  They allowed Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” pass without special counsel.  No special counsel to investigate Lois Lerner and the IRS targeting of politically conservative associations.  No investigation of the Clinton bathroom email server, nor of the Huma Abedin emails of secure intelligence to her crazy husband, Carlos Danger, who not only lacked security clearance to see those emails, but was ripe to be extorted for all kinds of mischief.  No special counsel to investigate connections between Bill Clinton’s million-dollar speaking engagements in the Putin universe and the concomitant conveyance of American uranium – the stuff of nuclear weapons – to the Russians.  Yet the Democrats – call them the “Obstructocrats” – now call for nothing but to impeach the president under any guise, for any reason, and just tie him up defending himself.

I cannot recall any time in the modern era, in any Western democracy, where the losing party declared itself “The Resistance” instead of the “Loyal Opposition.”

In the end, it may take two things to determine whether Mr. Trump ultimately is going to be the president he set out to be and for which we elected him: (i) the midterm elections in 2018 and (ii) finally finishing what Harry Reid started and, for once and for all, ending the filibuster rule completely, even as that archaic and unconstitutional obstacle applies to legislation, too.

Certainly, the party in power typically sustains midterm losses.  If the GOP manages to hold the House and gains some of those Democrat Senate seats in red states without losing more than one or two GOP Senate seats, then President Trump will emerge with enormous authority to move forward.  It will mean that two years of concerted Democrat obstruction, which seems so successful to them and their media echo chamber in D.C., actually will not have advanced leftist interests.  The president’s strength will be all the more enhanced if the GOP holds all but one or two of its Senate seats and sweeps a boatload of the red-state Democrat Senate seats.  It will be a definitive statement that, for all the garbage and “Resistance” and left op-eds and editorials, the voters outside the Beltway did not buy and are not buying any of the daily character assassinations.  It will assure President Trump and the GOP enormous momentum going forward.

By contrast, if the Democrats do well in the midterm House voting, even if they do not recapture the House but chart substantial gains, and if they hold most of their red-state Senate seats and even scoop a few of the GOP Senate seats, then they will be emboldened to intensify “The Resistance” toward 2020, and the president will be stymied.

Even so, and even then, it is one thing for voters to tell Quinnipiac and Rasmussen that they are disappointed in or do not approve of Mr. Trump (especially when the survey questions are worded in a way to elicit that response).  Quite another thing when the same voters are faced with the actual – not theoretical – alternatives for leadership: Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, other misfits and public nuisances of that ilk.  One remembers back to Richard Nixon being re-elected in 1972 by the biggest landslide ever because his opponent was Sen. George McGovern, who was not likeable, not impressive, and quite radical by the day’s standards.

With or without “The Resistance,” if President Trump gets re-elected in 2020, there will be hell to pay, because this man takes down names.  By then, he absolutely will be pressed to end the filibuster nonsense, finally, assuming that the GOP holds the Senate.

There is some value to a filibuster rule when it is used sparingly and judiciously.  Moreover, all sober-minded conservatives recognize that politics is cyclical, and one day the Democrats again will hold power.  But we also know that the filibuster, which has no basis in the Constitution, never was meant to require that each and every bill muster at least a 60-percent super-majority.  Rather, it was intended for the one or two moments in a term when a bill of constitutional moment was on the line, and the rule required the filibustering senator to hold the floor and speak 24 hours a day, with support from colleagues.  It never was meant for a “Resistance” to prevent a majority party from getting anything done for eight years.

In the meantime, let’s get some donors to get the building fund rolling.”

Kathy Griffin, the PERFECT FEMINIST QUEEN DITZIE

According  to today’s schooling, public or private controlled  by  the lefty American world, the one of ‘all human sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes’, it a major  sin to teach, infer, think, write, whisper there are no differences between the human male and human female.

All now is alleged to   ‘equal’ as an animal being….despite what one thinks,  sees, accomplishes, how one talks, where one works,  (even, as one understands the perpetuation of the species)….the sexes are deemed the same….according to your current university’s   Female Leftist teachings at your social science departments from American coast to American coast).

Most honest Americans admit that life as it has been recorded throughout history,seems to indicate the human male is born to be curious, to  build, explore,  defend, discover, sire, and to be a hunter and a killer.   They do know the human female is NOT a carbon copy of a  human male.   They do know the “she” of the human animal is born ditzy, and that some are sly and cunning, but most are ‘filled’ with feelings, feelings which tend to persuade the sex more than truth and reality.

And then there are those lefties akin to “crybully”, the  ditzy  lefty gal hired by CNN, Kathy Griffin, who recently advertised celebrating  her beheading of our present American President, Donald J. Trump….only “for laughs” via her tv audience, of course.   “Crybully” didn’t perform too well yesterday.   Today, with her attorney at her side, she returned to national television with a new performance of feelings.

She reached leftist again.   In her defense, she decided to attack the President’s entire family  for the  sufferings her advertising of her pretended murder of the  President. The artistic beheading  performance of the beheading of the American President was a joke…ha, ha, ha.

Our Constitutional Crisis Has to Do with Democrats Corrupting America’s Intelligence, Decency, and Freedom

OUR CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH JAMES COMEY

by William Sullivan  at American Thinker:

“President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has been pretty big news, and there will be no dearth of continued commentary about what it means.  But what rings hollowest in all the commentary surrounding it have been the nearly uniform claims among the left that his firing represents a “constitutional crisis.”

Does the left now care about the United States Constitution?  Because that would certainly be newsworthy.  This is the same left which, as David Harsanyi of The Federalist reminds us, didn’t utter a peep of disapproval about President Obama’s efforts to “unilaterally legalize millions of people without Congress.”  What about the constitutionality of the federal government forcing people to purchase health insurance, forcing private health insurance companies to cap prices for higher-risk clients, setting school lunch menus, peculiarly targeting conservative groups for tax audits, or executive directives to ignore federal immigration law?  The left didn’t care about “constitutionality” when all of those things happened during Obama’s presidency, but now are shouting from the pulpit that Donald Trump’s firing of the current FBI director, whose direct role is to “serve at the pleasure of the president,” is somehow some incredible affront to the liberty guaranteed by the Constitution?

The left’s hypocrisy here is certainly stark, but in a way, it is evidence that the term “constitutional crisis” has been thrown around in so many pithy accusations over the years by the left and right that the phrase no longer has any meaning relative to the actual Constitution of the United States.

Consider that Princeton political scientist Keith Whittington suggests that “[c]onstitutional crises arise out of the failure, or strong risk of failure, of a constitution to perform its central functions.”

The “central function” of our Constitution has always been to limit the authority of the federal government, and to clearly enumerate the “few and defined” powers of the federal government to be held in contrast to the “numerous and indefinite” power of state governments, as James Madison wrote in Federalist No. 45.

Yet today, a great many of the things that we consider to be within the federal government’s purview are absolute affronts to the Constitution, and particularly the Tenth Amendment, which Thomas Jefferson held to be the foundation of the Constitution:

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: “That all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States and the People.”  To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.

How can we define our nation to be one of limited federal authority when, every day, we see that the restrictions of our Constitution have become meaningless? And if the limitations of the Constitution (again, its central function) have largely become meaningless, how can it be denied that we have long existed in a state of “constitutional crisis?”

A federal Department of Education (DoE), for example, has absolutely no right to exist in the scope of the Constitution.  Congress was beyond its tether when it allowed for this executive institution to have been born.  Yet billions upon billions of taxpayer dollars have been thrust into this federal institution to regulate our children’s education, and few ever consider the question as to whether there was the right, in the first place, of the federal government to create such an institution with the immeasurable power it has.

Tell me, where in the Constitution can you find any evidence that the federal government has the right to confiscate wealth from Americans, and then to grant or withhold payment to states based upon this federal agency’s evaluation of their adequate adoption of Common Core curricula?  And when you cannot find any such evidence that the federal government has such a right granted by the Constitution, wouldn’t you have to admit that the Obama administration’s having done precisely that is in direct violation of the Tenth Amendment, and thus represents a “constitutional crisis?”

Take a look at the Department of Labor, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, or the Department of Transportation.  There is equally no allowance given to the federal government, by the Constitution, to regulate these spheres of assumed jurisdiction.  All of these agencies, including the DoE, more embody the planks of Communism found in Marx’s Manifesto than our own Constitution.  And yet the mere fact that these federal now agencies exist is enough to give us, with our modern sensibilities, the presupposition that the federal government must have a right to exert its influence in said areas of life, however cumbersome or costly they may be, and however absent any validation for that assumed power might be in our nation’s Constitution.

The reality is that very little of anything Washington considers its day-to-day business today has anything to do with the Constitution.  Our constitutional crisis is, and for quite some time has been, that the Constitution no longer matters in our political discourse.  Our national conversation about whether a thing is right or wrong tends to be a matter of preference and partisan interest.  Yes, the Constitution can be opportunistically invoked by either side as substantiation for any outrage. But it is generally an argumentative substrate of convenience, and rarely of principle.

The left is currently demonstrating this with the furor over Comey’s firing, but I sincerely hope that when conservatives talk about “draining the swamp” in D.C., they are suggesting a return to constitutional principles of limited federal authority, because this thing works both ways.

After all, if Ivanka Trump pushes for a $500 billion federal childcare bill (as she’s doing) because it’s her preferred cause du jour, and Congress indeed acts to provide single mothers with taxpayer dollars for childcare, wouldn’t it be very much like the federal overreach that we once claimed Obamacare represented, and thus be a true “constitutional crisis?”  Where does the Constitution define that the role of the federal government to seize wealth from taxpayers to provide childcare for American mothers?

If you happen to like this idea so much, you are free to petition your state to enact such a law with your state’s money to subsidize the payments.  I believe it would still be wrong, but this is how federalism works, and how the Constitution was intended to work.

We can only make American great again by again making America what the Constitution intended it to be.  And we can only do that by working to rein the federal government back within the boundaries that the Constitution defines.”

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF BEAUTY IN AMERICA’S GODLESS, FASCIST, LEFTIST WORLD TODAY

Beauty:  — arrives to  America rarely these days.   It has become a Godless place, this United States of America ruled by Democrats and other such leftist, fascist kind trained by the Godless at your university and college from American coast to American coast.  Shakespeare was “raised” a human male during the latter part of the 16th century England.

I am in my dying years of a wonderful American Godfearing life.  I was taught to discover God and “his” beauty, at home, school, Church, at newspaper, by family  and society….after all, if one wants to be simple about JudeoChristianity, God and Beauty both govern the Soul….as I was taught by old maid school teacher after old maid school teacher of the most learned Godfearing kind during my most formative years of learning right from wrong, beauty from ugliness.

I was in ninth grade when I was forced to read and learn the words of the following  written utterance by William Shakespeare by a red-wigged, 100 year old appearing,  90 pound or less relic of a magnificent world passing by,  Mabel Wicker.

I couldn’t read books….Dyslexia hadn’t been ‘invented’ then.   But, I could read encyclopedias, newspapers and remember  words if I had heard such words before reading them….

Sometimes Beauty appears in Life rising  from the Ugly, the Evil and Wicked, I was told.   Miss Mabel Wicker made me recognize and seek beauty in  this Shakespeare, a craving which has never left me  to this very day.

I was forced to learn the following soliloquy for its beauty and content…at age 14……

Its utterance was designed to occur in Scotland of yesteryear, Thane Macbeth and his wife, had slipped into evil  to gain power by  plotting and committing a murder…..one of the Ten Commandments a JudeoChristian of that period and ours, must avoid committing to remain in the world of God’s Grace….in the thinking animal’s war between   good and evil….

Their evil was exposed….punishment was approaching.  Lady Macbeth’s wife chose to  commit suicide, leaving the  Thane  alone to face  his impending doom,  as the ‘righteous’ were advancing to  claim society’s  justice.

Shakespeare’s Godless Macbeth turns to Truth of his  atheist’s  death…..in words, never, never made more beautiful for the Godfearing human ear and soul to absorb…..

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.”

Shakespeare is no longer taught in feminized, black racist, and leftist Latino America today!   Beauty and God have been made to disappear at Harvard!!!
