The Democrat party took another shellacking on Tuesday when Republican Karen Handel easily won a US House seat in a ‘special’ election by 3.8 points. The Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff was a joke. He did not even live in the district in which he was running, and was funded by huge out-of-state contributions, primarily from California.
Democrats said that Ossoff was going to win and prove that President Trump was unpopular even in a conservative state. But it shows the opposite. It shows that the Silent Majority is no longer listening to the rantings of the media and their cronies on the left, including these angry, off-the-wall entertainers and activists.
Here are seven things that we can learn from Handel’s win:
*The shooting of Republican congressman Scalise was certainly a significant factor. When law-abiding people see the behavior of the unhinged Democrat left they vote for rationality and the rule of law.
*Voters in Georgia do not take kindly to out-of-state intervention in their elections. Democrats should take note of this. But they won’t.
*Ossoff ran on a conservative platform to cut government spending, which got him a lot of votes. This was pure fakery yet he still could not win. And Democrats had better stop pulling this stunt. Republicans are now wise to it.
*Even with a massive effort by Democrat volunteers Ossoff lost. This shows that the Democrat plan to use an energized electorate and wads of campaign cash does not necessarily translate into victory. Voters in many cases were certainly turned off by too much aggressive campaigning and too many ads for Ossoff.
*Ossoff is a lightweight and this is going to be a big problem for Democrats. They think that they are going to run against Trump because they think Trump is unpopular and that anybody can win. But their strategy already has backfired twice since they are getting kooks and lightweights as candidates who think that they must simply run against president Trump to win.
In the recent election in Montana, the Democrat candidate was a folk singer who had performed regularly at a nudist camp and who owed thousands in back taxes. This is a clear example of what kind of candidate the Democrats may end up with. (The folk singer lost…)
*President Trump is not nearly as unpopular as the media make him out to be.
*This is a big psychological defeat for Democrats and is going to further weaken them, particularly since they themselves invested so much, in dollars and in their personal energy, into this loss. It was Democrats who said that this would be a referendum on president Trump. Well, it was. And Trump won.
Donald Trump Jr. really rubbed it in. He tweeted: ‘Congratulations dems that’s the most expensive participation medal ev… um since November’
Now here is an excerpt from NewsBusters about the Georgia district that Handel won for a seat formerly held by Republican Tom Price, who is now the Trump administrations HHS secretary:
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC, Washington Post editorial page deputy editor Ruth Marcus repeated the misleading claim that, because former Republican Rep. Tom Price has a history of winning landslide victories, the 6th Congressional District of Georgia should still be a solidly Republican seat.
The liberal Post columnist admitted President Donald Trump barely won the district as she began her prediction: “I think if Republicans can’t keep this seat, they’re really in trouble in the Trump years, and here’s why: Yes, Trump won it by a point, but Tom Price won it by multiple, you know, double digits repeatedly.”
But she then added:
So the fact that this is a competitive seat tells you about the trouble that the Republican party is in right now in some congressional districts in the age of Trump. This should not be a — this would not be a competitive seat were it not for Donald Trump. And to me that’s what this race is about.
A glaring omission from her analysis of Price’s recent wins in the district is that his last opponent who appeared on the ballot in 2016 — Rodney Stooksbury – seemed to be a hoax candidate as he did not raise money or campaign, and was unreachable when local media tried to interview him.
If a name on the ballot in the Democratic slot can get almost 40 percent without even making any effort, surely it’s not surprising if an actual candidate manages to score about 10 points better and run a close race.
Otherwise, it is not atypical for an incumbent to win reelection by landslide margins while a seat may then be more competitive when it comes open as it attracts stronger candidates and campaign spending on both sides.
Fascinating. Now here is today’s second commentary:
Just when we thought that we had heard everything, there is now a Democrat US senator who wants some type of “independent commission” to look into the ‘fake news’ that president Trump somehow won the election with the help of Russia.
In other words, they already are going beyond the “independent counsel” who has been appointed since they already know that Robert Mueller is not going to turn up anything. So they are moving to the next step to keep the story stoked up.
Nikitas3.com says… “Bring it on” The media and Democrats and activists have been trying to bring down Donald Trump for years now. They have thrown everything they have at him and have failed. Because there is nothing there. Trump just keeps going, like the Energizer Bunny.
They don’t understand that Trump is strong and that he comes out of a different world, of business. And that Trump has seen it all and knows how to survive, particularly in a brutal business like real estate in brutal environments like New York City and in cities all over the world. He also has succeeded in the media, with 40 years in the public eye and with the super-successful The Apprentice television show. Trump has had more real-life experience and success outside of politics than any other US president.
The longer that the Trump haters continue to play their Russia card the more that president Trump will be able to expose them as being desperate. After all Trump has 26 million Twitter followers, and that is a formidable army to start with, particularly since Trump uses Twitter effectively and often.
Democrats could do vastly better for themselves by proposing a positive agenda for reform, but don’t expect that for three big reasons:
*their ideas do not work. Obama left the nation in terrible condition. Meanwhile liberal states are failing all over America, the most recent being Illinois and Connecticut. Obamacare collapsed. And on and on;
*Democrats are negative people; and
*they are trapped in a ‘herd’ mentality where they cannot think of anything outside of the media-driven narrative, i.e., let’s get Trump on Russia. This narrative is being driven by top media people in New York and Washington. There is no other path since nobody else has the power to change the narrative.
This is always the Democrat/leftist template, to fixate on a pre-determined subject. For instance, they utterly fixate on ‘global warming’. They have attached themselves to it and will never let go because they have invested 20 years in creating it.
They now will hang onto Russia tenaciously in order to stoke their militant base voters – the lunatics and kooks, primarily in cities and on college campuses, who are completely catatonic about Russia. It gives them a hook to hang their anti-Trump hat on. It makes them feel good. It is like a drug for them. So don’t expect the Democrats to take away that drug.
But this strategy will not work. Democrats have marginalized themselves by attaching themselves to these fringe actors. The more they do that, the more they will continue to suffer. Democrats are in a box. They cannot escape it since they built the box.
We all have heard about The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Yet already there are tens of millions of Americans who are tired of hearing this Russia story, who are not even listening any more, including the 57% of electoral college voters who put Trump in the White House. That is called “a majority”.
Question: Why are the Democrats so hysterical about Russia anyway?
The main reason is because Russia is the world’s most devoted Christian nation and it is a white nation, and we know that socialists worldwide oppose and even hate Christians and conservative white people. There are 110 million white Orthodox Christians in Russia and Putin supports them. He even is anti-homosexual. This enrages the international atheists in the US and around the world.
On the other hand the Democrat party adored “the Russians” when that meant the atheist and communist Soviet Union that had controlled Russia from 1917 to 1991 and that had perpetrated decades of genocide, deprivation and oppression, and sought, and failed, to destroy the Orthodox church.
Back then Democrats said that we needed to get along with the marxist murderers. Democrats said that the Soviet Union was the only “balance” to American power. They said communism wasn’t so bad. They said that America was just as bad. Actress Jane Fonda even posed grinning ear-to-ear for a famous photo with communist anti-aircraft gunners in Vietnam.
The fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 came as a huge blow to the Democrat party.
You cannot talk about Trump’s fake ‘collusion’ with Russia without considering genuine decades-long collusion between Democrats and the communists. Just look at this amazing story from Forbes magazine:
Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.
“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.”
Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”
So there you go, and there were certainly dozens of incidents like this that we will never know about. Thus now we have a clearer picture of why the Democrats are so rabidly triggered by the very word “Russia”. It just isn’t the good old place that they knew decades ago.
This narrative continues to this day. Here is an excerpt from NewBusters of June 19, 2017:
On the June 11 NBC Nightly News, correspondent Lucy Kafanov voiced nostalgia for the days of communism as she reported on poverty in rural Russia.
“It wasn’t always like this,” Kafanov argued. “In the Soviet era, most villagers worked on huge collective farms. Life wasn’t easy, but the government provided for the people.”
Kafanov then showed viewers the yearnings of a Russian woman: “‘It would be so good to live like before,’ she tells me. ‘Under communism, there were plenty of jobs and plenty to eat.'”
Oh, sure. Kafanov and this woman conveniently forget, or never learned, that up to 30 million Russians and Ukrainians were murdered by their own communist government, and that Russians waited in line for bread under communism as America put a man on the moon under capitalism and had supermarkets chock full of every type of food imaginable.
