Democrats got another black eye when their candidate was defeated in the closely-watched Georgia US House election of June 20. The victory by Republican Karen Handel by 4 points marks the fourth ‘special election’ congressional victory for Republicans since president Trump was elected.
Yet the Democrats continue to claim that Trump and Republicans are unpopular after Democrats put unprecedented effort and money into the Georgia election and still lost.
For decades we heard the Democrats tell us that “demographics” would doom the Republican party, that blacks, hispanics and everyone except old white people hated Republicans and their policies. But studies of the 2016 presidential election show that working-class voters of all races and ages moved by the millions to Trump and the Republicans.
This is a major development, but is no surprise since Democrats abandoned the white working class intentionally. Meanwhile Democrat policies have effectively abandoned all working people. This will finish off the Democrats if they do not make major reforms, which they won’t.
Oh, certainly Democrat candidates will talk about working-class issues like job creation, but the party will not really embrace them or do anything serious about them, like cutting regulation or taxes to help businesses.
Now look at this from the Washington Examiner:
The Democratic National Committee raised nearly $4.3 million in May, making it the organization’s worst May on record for fundraising since 2003, according to newly released Federal Election Commission data.
In May 2003, the Democratic group pulled in $2.7 million. Although 2017 is an off-year for fundraising, the DNC has raised between $4.5 million and $20 million every May in the nearly decade and a half since then.
The low number follows another rough fundraising month in April, in which the group hauled in $4.7 milllion, making it the worst April of fundraising since 2009.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez has said he intends to double the organization’s budget from $50 million to $100 million this year, a change that will prove difficult if donations continue to remain below average. Perez defended his performance by saying he has only been leading the DNC for a few months now.
…The Republican National Committee reported $10.8 million in donations for the month of May, an off-year record-high number…
Thus the money is drying up too. Many big-bucks donors to Hillary Clinton’s campaign are furious that their cash was squandered in a terrible campaign. Some are withdrawing from the party, and the Georgia loss only makes the situation worse.
On the other hand, the mega-billionaire Koch Brothers are going to ramp up their spending to as much as $400 million on behalf of conservative candidates in the 2018 mid-term elections. This is good news. Politico.com reports about the growing crisis:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats put a brave face on Wednesday morning after a disappointing loss in the Georgia special election, yet there is no disguising the unhappiness in the party ranks.
There is no challenge to Pelosi’s leadership, and none is going to happen at this point, said numerous Democrats. But it’s clear frustration is growing with the longtime Democratic leader following the extensive losses Democrats have suffered over the past half-decade.
And the fact that Republicans spent millions of dollars on TV ads tying (Georgia) Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff to Pelosi — and the brand of progressive policies she represents — shows that she will once again be an issue for Democratic challengers in the very districts that the party needs to win to make her speaker again.
This story is now picking up steam after the Georgia loss. This is big. President Trump joked that Pelosi has “an extraordinary record against her. It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down. I would be very disappointed if she did.” This is very telling – that Trump is even joking about Pelosi.
Meanwhile the same Democrats vilify a president who has a 50% approval rating in the latest poll by Rasmussen, which is the most reliable poll. A recent unscientific internet poll on the Drudge Report showed 92% approval for Trump! Amazingly this comes after two years of daily Trump bashing. Thus Democrats are missing out once again on the mindset of the majority of Americans who live beyond Washington, DC and outside of our cities.
Here is another shocker from Breitbart.com:
NBC political director Chuck Todd revealed an inconvenient truth when he acknowledged on Friday that even though Trump may not have the most robust poll numbers, Trump’s supporters still make up the “biggest faction” in today’s polarized political era.
On his MTP Daily program on MSNBC, Todd said that Trump’s supporters are “sticking by him” and though not a majority, Trump’s base is still “bigger than any other faction” in politics today.
Here is more from Fox News showing why Democrats continue to sink:
Democrats acknowledged Wednesday that their anti-Trump campaign message has failed to connect with voters this year in the wake of two more party losses in House special elections.
Voters “want us to focus on jobs and the economy,” Illinois Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos told Fox News’ “Happening Now” on Wednesday. “I get almost no questions about Russia. I get no recommendations that I [should] support impeachment. … All of the other sideshows are not what people want us to focus on.”
Imagine that… jobs and the economy, the issues that took president Trump to the White House. This is instructive, that Democrats are only now recognizing the real issues that a majority of voters care about. Democrats also face huge problems in other areas like these:
*They are becoming a black party with radicalized and racist, anti-white blacks having increasing control. This is driving white people away who might otherwise sympathize with the Democrat agenda. One black college professor in Connecticut recently posted on the internet that white people should be killed.
There is nothing that Democrats can do about this issue; they have allowed militant blacks to take over much of the party and these blacks will never let go. In fact they are becoming more radical as they take more control.
Working-class hispanics and Asians also are fleeing the Democrat party. Even small numbers of defections are devastating for the Democrats as the 2016 presidential election showed. When these defections pick up speed, it will be catastrophic.
*Democrats have always been a hard-left party of labor unions at the same time that unions sink in membership and popularity across America.
*Democrats are the “green” party while tens of millions of voters no longer have any sympathy for every endangered species. President Trump is highlighting the problem, for instance, by pulling out of the Paris “climate” pact. Americans want jobs. They don’t want the European Union telling us how much energy we can use.
It is amazing how much media commentary focuses on ‘global warming’ and nature worship, as if economic development is evil, which has been the narrative of the left for decades. The local left-wing newspaper in my Nikitas3.com hometown in Massachusetts has a regular column about bird watching at the same time that my county suffers with poverty and high unemployment. Most people don’t care about bird watching; only the elites do.
*Democrats are the ‘blue’ party of urban America. They have contempt for anyone who does not share their urban and liberal values. This is marginalizing the Democrats.
*Their hatred of Trump is encouraging not a genuine and seasoned political opposition, but is leading to fringe actors running against Republicans thinking that they can win since everyone allegedly hates president Trump.
This strategy will fail. These Democrats cannot win, like the wacky folk singer who ran (and lost) for a US House seat from Montana. Or the candidate in the recent Georgia election who did not even live in the congressional district in which he was running (which is perfectly legal. He lost.). Or the psychic who is planning to run in Iowa. Or dozens of other screwballs who are getting ready to jump in.
These crazy candidates just need to get their fellow lunatics to support them in the primaries and they will be the candidates in the general election. And then they will lose. This will happen dozens of times in the 2018 mid-term elections, predicts Nikitas3.com.
*Democrats are the “red” party of leftist radicals. But the socialist/communist Welfare State is a failure. Americans have been fleeing the very socialistic states for decades. Connecticut and Illinois, both historically liberal states, are currently heading for collapse if they do not make major reforms. Watch for a reformist Republican named Peter Lumaj to be elected Connecticut governor in 2018. Lumaj is an Albanian immigrant who has become a successful lawyer.
*Democrats are, and always have been, the party of profanity and vulgarity. The commentary about president Trump and Republicans that is coming out of the mouths of even top Democrats like US senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York is outrageous (she used the F word twice in a recent speech). This is driving voters away. Voters want solutions, not profanity.
*Democrats are the party of illegal immigration and open borders. A clear majority of Americans want this ended. They approve of Trump’s crackdown, and Trump will win re-election in 2020 when he explains that the Democrats will simply throw the borders open again. This alone will become a major boost for Republicans over the next few elections and beyond.
*Democrats are pro-Islam and are covering up for terrorism and extremism. Their party deputy chairman is a militant Muslim US congressman. Democrats’ media friends are doing much in this area. For example CNN reported recently that a terrorist who shouted “Allahu Akbar!” had “shouted something in Arabic”.
*The violence against Trump supporters and Republicans is unacceptable and must be prosecuted. Protesters at a Trump rally even interrupted president Trump as he was wishing well to injured congressman Steve Scalise. This is a horrible image for the anti-Trumpers. This is already creating a backlash of sympathy for Republicans and Trump, and that backlash certainly helped to elect Karen Handel in the recent Georgia election.
Even when a Democrat official from Nebraska said that he was glad that congressman Scalise was shot, the only network that even covered the story, ABC, was quick to say that the official claimed that “he had been taken out of context”… which is what they all say when they get caught.
*This fake Russia story is like the Obama ‘birther’ story a thousand times over. But it is like the Boy Who Cried Wolf. Most Americans are sick of it, except the media. Even top Democrats are telling their officeholders to cool it on Russia because it is hurting them.
*Democrats are the party of negativity and attacks on Republicans. If they don’t start proposing a more positive agenda, they will continue to suffer.
Now here are the shocking numbers about how much power the Democrats have lost since Obama was first elected. Republicans now control:
*the White House and the enormous power that goes with it, including the power to appoint Supreme Court justices and federal judges, which will re-make American jurisprudence for decades to come. If one of the two elderly liberal Supreme Court justices Stephen Breyer or Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or retires while Trump is in office, it will be game over for liberals for the next 30 years;
*the US Senate, with 51 Republican senators out of 100 (certainly 52 when the Sessions seat is filled). That number even could go to 53 since one Democrat may switch parties. This gives Republicans majority control of the Senate again, which they were expected to lose in the recent election. This means that Trump will generally get all of the legislation that he wants and the appointments that he wants, including the Supreme Court.
*the US House of Representative with 241 Republicans to 194 Democrats, a big GOP majority that will be very difficult for Democrat to overcome.
*Republicans hold 33 out of 50 governorships. Republican governors rule almost all of the thriving and growing American states, and also many once-liberal states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Even ultra-liberal Vermont just elected a Republican governor by a whopping 9 points.
*Republicans have majority control of 68 out of 98 state legislative bodies.
*Republicans have been doing extremely well in mid-term elections and so you can expect them to do well in 2018, with Trump there to help them. Worse for Democrats, only eight Republican US senators are up for re-election in 2018 but 25(!) non-Republicans (Democrats and independents) are. This will provide a clear opportunity for another rout of the Democrats and could take Republicans to 60 US Senate seats, the “magic number” that would give Trump almost unlimited power.
Here is an added note from the Washington Post to make these arrogant Democrats even more depressed:
Donald Trump is set to inherit an uncommon number of vacancies in the federal courts in addition to the open Supreme Court seat, giving the president-elect a monumental opportunity to reshape the judiciary after taking office. The estimated 103 judicial vacancies that President Obama is expected to hand over to Trump in the Jan. 20 transition of power is nearly double the 54 openings Obama found eight years ago following George W. Bush’s presidency.
