Democrats do nothing for years
After years of accusing Republicans of doing nothing but disparaging what the Democrats were doing without any constructive ideas of what was a better idea, the Democrats have spent most of their time lately castigating Donald Trump, without presenting a plan to revive the liberal movement. The GOP own the U.S. government and the Dems haven’t the slightest idea of how to get it back. Nancy Pelosi in the House proved completely ineffective, as was Harry Reid as Democratic head of the Senate. It is as if the Party of FDR is stuck in a rut with their wheels mired so deep that it will take a locomotive to pull it out.
Better Deal not the New Deal
On July 24, Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority leader, laid out the Democrats 2018 “Better Deal,” which looks promising in respect to returning to the principles of the left. With him in Berryville, VA, were Nancy Pelosi and even Progressive, Elizabeth Warren. But not Bernie Sanders. The new Gawker Media, renamed Splinter, termed the agenda “modestly left-wing.” That got it for some but probably not for most Progressives, except for the support of Bernie Sanders issues, the $15.00 minimum wage and some form of Universal healthcare that were mentioned. There was a big problem…
- “There was one problem the Better Deal could not solve: the attention problem. On Monday, despite a long ramp-up and a flurry of op-eds about the new message, the Better Deal got only a little more TV time than the average minority party announcement.”
And where was media time spent?…
- “For most of Monday, cable news chewed over Jared Kushner’s testimony to senators looking into possible Russian meddling in the election; for somewhat less time, it covered the progression of a GOP health-care bill that kept rising from the dead.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz top aide, Imran Awan, arrested…
Bernie Sanders had the left enthused to vote
This is partly the media’s fault for its focus on the Oval Office lunatic and his family, but a less-than-intelligent public demands less-than-intelligent and bizarre news coverage. We wouldn’t want to feed it that substantive stuff that should be used to make intelligent political decisions. Shoot em the pablum that makes headlines, selling advertising and newspapers. The other fault, of course, is that of Democrats who have sat on their butts for years and let the GOP virtually take over the country from the local level to the federal government. What do you expect? Bernie Sanders did more to arouse the left during the 2016 campaign than Dems have done in 20 years.
Bernie Sanders lost in 2016 the fault of Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Had it not been for Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her underhanded dealings as Democratic National Committee (DNC) head, Bernie Sanders would have won the 2016 Democratic Primary. That’s pretty much a given now, after the reading of the several DNC emails that clearly implicated her in the plot to nominate Hillary Clinton. A class-action lawsuit filed by residents of 45 states against the DNC asks Schultz to pay back the Bernie Sanders supporters for their donations. This was prompted when “…the DNC gave out $1 million in bonuses, including more than $300,000 to Democratic National Convention Host Committee Executive Director Kevin Washo.
But here is the clincher…
- “Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top information technology (IT) aide was arrested Monday attempting to board a flight to Pakistan after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to that country.
“He attempted to leave the country hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group revealed that he is the target of an FBI investigation, and the FBI apprehended him at the airport.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz top aide a crook
The culprit, Imran Awan, a Pakistani-born IT aide, apparently had access to emails and the files of dozens of members of Congress, as well as Schultz’s iPad password, the device she used in the conducting of all the DNC business affairs. Schultz has known for months about the criminal investigation of Awan and his family, but despite this, she has protected the man. Now, you would have to wonder why she would do this. But so far Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had nothing to say about the whole thing. There are a lot of sleazy members of the U.S. Congress, mostly Republicans. But this unscrupulous Democrat has to go.
