Democrats Boxed in, Panicked as Bernie Sanders Surges

Senator Bernie Sanders won a resounding victory in the Nevada caucuses on February 21. President Trump, eager to run against and trounce Sanders, tweeted gleefully:

Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!

The question is: Can the Democrat party survive a Sanders candidacy in the Age of Trump?

The answer is No. And for an example, just look at the recent elections in very liberal Britain where the Labour party was totally wiped out precisely as Britain exited from the European Union.

Democrats in America are in a total panic about what is happening to their party. Pro-Democrat MSNBC commentators Chris Matthews and Donnie Deutsch are admitting out loud that they are scared to death of having the radical socialist/communist Sanders as the nominee. More and more top Democrats are saying that Trump will win re-election, some even uttering the dreaded ‘L’ word – that Trump could win in a landslide if Sanders becomes the nominee.

Said Deutsch: “And I’m panicked. I am absolutely panicked.”

Good. But if you have been reading over the last few years you would have seen this coming. I predicted as far back as 2017 that Trump would be re-elected. Today I am sure of it more than ever; I am predicting a landslide against Sanders. There is nobody on the Democrat side, whether running for president or on the sidelines, who can beat Trump.

With the derailing of Michael Bloomberg’s “buy the White House at any cost” campaign, it looks like the Democrats may be stuck with Sanders as their nominee. Oh, they prayed that Bloomberg and his billions would be able to legitimately shove Bernie aside and go on to beat Trump, but their hopes seem to have been dashed with Bloomberg’s horrible Las Vegas debate performance and Sanders’ convincing victory in Nevada.

Things have gotten so bad for Democrats that their formerly front-running candidate Joe Biden made this surreal statement:

If anything changed in my health, making it incapable of me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, then I give you my word: I would not run again (for a second term in 2024).

All of this Democrat self-destruction is attributable to one single person – president Donald John Trump. Once considered a joke, Trump is a juggernaut. He cannot be stopped. He is cool and confident. He maintains a great sense or humor. His audiences love him. He gets things done.

Best of all he drives the Democrats crazy, which makes them act worse and worse and look worse and worse. And the ruthless attacks on his character have backfired so dramatically that he is stronger than ever. As the old adage goes, “what does not kill me makes me stronger”. has been predicting for more than a year that Bernie Sanders is going to be the Democrat nominee, that he is “next in line” since he challenged Hillary in 2016 and probably would have beaten her if the system was not rigged against him. And he will be the nominee in 2020 unless the Democrats steal the election from him, which it looks like they are going to try to do using the superdelegate process.

After all, Democrats know that militant Sanders will not only lose the presidency but that a Trump landslide would turn the US House back to Republican control, would keep Republican majority control of the US Senate and would flip hundreds of down-ticket races to the GOP from governors to state senators to mayors and city councilors.

Here is another shocking story about Sanders that is ammunition for Trump: A former consultant for Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign has been arrested after he allegedly planted loaded weapons and ammunition inside a Tennessee jail that was under construction. This guy planned to carry out a future jailbreak, authorities said.

Amazing… Will the Democrats ever recover from this growing debacle?

Not for a long time, if ever. They have so committed themselves to an extremist agenda that they cannot go back. Democrats are like the ruling party in a tin-pot dictatorship – they cannot give up their power or admit that they are destroying their party and their nation. Otherwise they all could die or lose everything. predicts that Democrats will continue to self-destruct and shrink into a smaller and smaller party. This opens the door for Mike Pence or some other Republican to be elected president in 2024. How about Donald Trump Jr? It is absolutely possible. He already is a rock star to Republicans nationwide.

Democrats are so desperate that they are reviving the Russia hoax, claiming that Russia is plotting to help Trump win re-election in order to de-legitimize Trump’s re-election even before it happens.

Obama is strangely absent in all of this. He not only declined to endorse his own vice president in the primaries, but he is watching with serious trepidation as the radicals march toward Sanders. Obama hates Sanders; he knows that Sanders is a death knell for the party.

And if Sanders is the nominee, Trump is going to double down on attacking his radical agenda and past (Sanders took his honeymoon in 1988 in the communist Soviet Union).

Thus the Democrats are going to have to seek to steal the nomination from Sanders to prevent an electoral bloodbath. But if they do steal it, another type of bloodbath will ensue as millions of Sanders supporters stay home on election day, actively protest the Democrat candidate, form a third party or maybe even riot in the streets.

Friends, this could be the beginning of the end for the Democrat party. They have no escape route unless Bernie Sanders dies. And so recommends that Sanders increase his personal security and hire a food taster. These Democrats are desperate.

But Democrats have only themselves to blame; the party burned itself to the ground by allowing so many of its members to go to the far left. It is not just Sanders who went there, but people like Obama himself; senators like Warren in Massachusetts and Hirono of Hawaii and Harris of California; governors like Newsom in California and Northam in Virginia; and tens of thousands of elected officials across the USA who have been drifting to the fringe for decades now.

In 1972 Democrats nominated a very liberal US senator named George McGovern of South Dakota for president. The party Establishment warned against McGovern, and in the ensuing election incumbent Republican president Richard Nixon, whom the media hated almost as much as they hate Trump, won 49 states. And don’t think that it can’t happen again (well, maybe 46).

As Democrats flounder, like in the Iowa caucus vote-count fiasco, Trump is gloating and Republican “enthusiasm” is sky-high. And “enthusiasm” is a major factor in elections. The most ‘enthusiastic’ party usually wins and the low Dem voter turnout in Iowa indicates that Democrats have nowhere near the ‘enthusiasm’ that they need to defeat Trump. Not even close.

Here are some other facts to show Trump’s strength:

*Trump got 8% of the black vote in 2016 but he has polled as high as 34% recently. Black conservative activist Candace Owens is predicting that Trump will get up to 20% or more of the black vote in 2020. If he does, that alone will wipe out the Democrats.

*At Trump rallies, surveys are taken of the attendees. At a Wisconsin rally a whopping 58% of attendees said that they were Independents or Democrats. At the recent Arizona rally 26% of attendees said that they did not even vote in the 2016 presidential election and so their Trump votes in November will be pure gravy. At the recent Colorado rally, 17% of attendees said that they were Democrats.

At three Trump rallies during his Western Swing:

20,193 Voters (attendees, either inside or outside) were identified who did not vote in 2016.
14,706 Voters (attendees, either inside or outside) were identified who claimed to be Democrats.

Wow. Democrats must be taking double doses of anti-depressants. Meanwhile Republicans across the country are signing up in droves to seek to unseat Democrats. Fox News reported:

Republicans are on the rebound.

A record number of candidates have filed to run for office in the House and Senate, breaking last cycle’s history-making numbers from the same point in time. But unlike the 2018 midterms when the surge was driven by Democrats, the congressional boom this time is on the Republican side, according to the latest federal candidate and financial activity report obtained exclusively by Fox News.

In 2019 alone, 781 Republicans filed federal paperwork to run for the House, the most ever recorded in an odd year at the Federal Election Commission. That’s up from 593 GOP candidates in 2017, when Democrats had an astounding 937 candidates at the same point.

Republican candidates across the country interviewed by Fox News said they feel momentum is on their side this time. Energized by President Trump and his impeachment acquittal, congressional hopefuls are making the case that Trump needs a fighter like them in the House or else the country will succumb to “socialist” Democratic plans.

“I’m tired of seeing my president attacked every day,” said Marjorie Greene, a GOP businesswoman and first-time congressional candidate running for an open seat in Georgia’s 14th district. “I’m tired of seeing our future threatened. I’m tired of seeing my children’s future extremely threatened, and it’s time to get off the bench and really step up to the plate.”

OK, we know the deal. This is what ‘enthusiasm’ looks like. And the “enthusiasm” is on the side of president Trump and the Republicans and conservatives. Fantastic.
