I don’t care how much Native American blood Elizabeth Warren has sloshing around in her veins. America is supposed to be a place where we focus on who, not what you are. That’s not the way it usually works for Democrats who politically segregate minority groups for as long as they are useful vote-getters. The truth about why minorities are so important to the party is one of the things Democrats lie to stupid voters about, but it’s hardly the only falsehood they’re telling.
I didn’t pay much attention to the hyperactive coverage of Barack Obama’s speech in Illinois on Friday. It felt like a tired follow-up to his thinly disguised campaign trail appearance at John McCain’s funeral that confirmed Donald Trump is the only issue for the midterm election. Obama and the Democrats who still follow in line behind him have nothing to offer except higher taxes, leftist extremism, more illegal immigrants, and an agenda that relies on turning Trump into a bad president. In my book that’s a go-nowhere offering that hints strongly at failure.
Midterm campaign season is getting ready to explode. These are the lessons for candidates who weren’t paying attention to this summer’s hot and ugly national climate: low unemployment is a failure, extremism is moderation, the rule of law depends on what party you belong to, and only the opposition’s Supreme Court nominees will legislate from the bench.
America is a not a place. It’s a concept based on ideals. Without the ideals we are just real estate to be given away to the highest bidder. One of those ideals is that we are a sovereign nation. That’s a tough one to sell as the voices demanding open borders and a socialist economy get louder. Extremist Democratic Party members know that they can encourage a militant left to do their dirty work while they stand back and hold themselves blameless for the inevitable confrontations and violence their rhetoric will create. That’s how liberal dissidents will abolish America, one clash and one ideal at a time.
The RNC just came knocking, looking for money again. Republicans have a lot of explaining to do before they deserve a single cent, starting with their tepid support for the president and the America First policy they aren’t supporting. Are they afraid they will be accused of being nationalists or is this the timeworn tradition of separating themselves from a president who might interfere with their job prospects and control of a Congress they still can’t seem to take charge of?
