Democrats Cut their Own Political Throats over Abortion

First, here is a quick note about the media. If you want to see how far to the liberal Trump-hater side that former president George W. Bush has gone, look at this from Fox News about his daughter:

Jenna Bush Hager will replace Kathie Lee Gifford alongside Hoda Kotb during the 10 a.m. ET hour of NBC’s “Today.”

Gifford and Kotb made the big announcement on Tuesday’s show, when Bush Hager was formally introduced and quickly given a glass of wine — which has become a signature of the show’s fourth hour.

NBC would never hire Bush’s daughter if he had not signed on fully to the anti-Trump bandwagon. This is a reward to Bush and his daughter from the Fake News media establishment. Now here is today’s main commentary:

Democrats appear to be killing their chances to win the White House in 2020 by adopting extremist political positions on open borders, the environment and now abortion. Look at this from Fox News:

Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don’t try saving the life of infants born alive during abortions, leading conservatives to wonder openly whether Democrats were embracing “infanticide” to appeal to left-wing voters.

All prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted down the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

… The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would have required that “any health care practitioner present” at the time of a birth “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”

This Senate vote was taken as a result of events that started with the configuration of the Supreme Court. Conservatives appear to have a 5-4 majority on the Court and Democrats are terrified that liberal justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could die or be forced to retire due to bad health, and that a 6-3 conservative majority could then be locked in for decades to come. And thus they see that one way or another that the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 legalizing abortion nationwide could be overturned.

And so Democrats are simply going all in on abortion by making abortion legal in every way possible in as many states as possible. New York state recently adopted a law allowing a fetus to be killed up to the point of birth. Ditto Vermont. The Virginia Democrat governor even talked about killing a child even after he or she is born.

Thus in order to get the US Senate on record, including those announced Democrat 2020 presidential candidates, Nebraska Republican senator Ben Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to get the candidates to show their hand. And show it they did.

This vote looks very bad for Democrats; it is an extremist position that will not even defend the life of a baby who is born after surviving an abortion. predicts that this issue and this vote are going to badly harm these Democrats, and all Democrats, in 2020.

We have been told by the media for decades that Americans are majority pro-choice. But the numbers are shifting rapidly as this debate has broken into the open in the past few weeks.

In a new Marist poll that is compared to the same poll taken just one month ago, the number of people who said that they are pro-life skyrocketed after the New York state law was passed.

In other words the New York law and other follow-up comments and legislative actions are making Americans think seriously about abortion, which many have never really done before.

And thus if voters think seriously about abortion in 2020 – which believes that they will since president Trump is going to highlight the issue – then this will damage Democrats at the polls.

To understand it you have to appreciate presidential politics in the Age of Trump. Democrats are no longer using nuanced language or hiding their extremism. They are gambling that Trump is going to be impeached or that the economy is going to crash or that something terrible is going to happen and that they are going to be elected no matter what they say or stand for.

But if nothing terrible does happen predicts that Democrats are going to get drubbed like Democrat presidential nominee Walter Mondale was drubbed in 1984 and Democrat George McGovern was drubbed in 1972 (each won only one electoral state out of 50).

Democrats never expected to get to this point. They expected Hillary Clinton to win in 2016 and that the Supreme Court today would be dominated 6 to 3 by liberals and that there would be no prospect whatsoever of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

But Trump was elected and now the issue of abortion is exposing the Democrats for who they really are. And don’t be fooled. These people relish the thought of destroying babies. They love it. It is pure sadistic blood lust and evil political radicalism.

If you can imagine thousands of abortionists and their assistants nationwide gladly performing this hideous act more than one million times every year, then you get the picture.

This started decades ago when liberals started to embrace abortion on demand. This came out of the feminist movement which sees children as an impediment to the social and economic progress of “women” without ever considering the impact of abortion on the emotional life of those women along with their husbands, fathers, sons, daughters, mothers, brothers, sisters, etc.

Abortion-on-demand is also an obsession of the casual sex movement which wants women who get pregnant during sex to be able to “get rid of“ the product of that behavior.

And then when you add this all to Democrats’ increasingly hardened positions on other issues like so-called ‘global warming’ (during another brutal Winter) and open borders (with their opposition to border security and Trump’s wall) it is clear that president Trump is driving Democrats to the extreme left. This is going to come back to haunt them.

Their Green New Deal bill is a monstrous and absurd proposal to eliminate airplanes and cars, rebuild every structure in America with energy-efficient materials and eliminate meat from our diets. And increasing numbers of Democrats are happily signing onto it.

Things have gotten so bad that the militant congresswoman Cortez is even suggesting that we all stop having children. Fox News reports:

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said young people have to ask a “legitimate question” in the wake of climate change and mounting student loan debt: “Is it okay to still have children?”

In an Instagram Live video over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., welcomed supporters into her kitchen—and gave a “special hello to my haters”—while she made chili and poured herself a glass of white wine.

“Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around,” she said, as she chopped sweet potatoes. “And so it’s basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should—is it okay to still have children?”

She continued: “Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but there’s also just this basic moral question, like, what do we do?”

To which responds, “Great! Let us pray that leftists, Democrats and environmentalists don’t have any children. Because then the world will be a much better place in 20 or 30 years.”
