Partisan Politics at its Worst in the Washington Cesspool!

Merriam Webster definition of Partisan: a firm adherent to a party, faction, cause or person: especially one exhibiting blind, prejudiced and unreasoning allegiance: example – political partisans who only see one side of the problem

I have been closely watching current events and their effects on the US economy for over fifty years. During all this time it seemed to me that partisan politics steadily went to even more extreme levels than it was in previous years. This was especially noticeable beginning in the 70’s and it seemed to always peak around national elections. The advent of cell phones, computers, the internet and cable TV made partisan politics much more visible and gave partisan politicians a very “public platform” to promote their, and/or their party’s agendas. As this “public platform” became “24/7 and 365” more politicians, especially on the national level realized that they could use it to promote their personal agendas, not just their party’s. This is how the “Washington Cesspool” became so full of politicians who are obsessed with their own personal WEALTH and POWER!  And they will say or do anything to amass and hold on to personal wealth and power, especially the POWER.

A study referred to in a Wikipedia article, the “American National Election Study”, came to the same conclusion that I described above regarding partisan politics in America. The “Study”, which began in 1952, concluded that over 60 years, “the meaning of the term (partisan politics) in America has changed dramatically over the last 60 years”. The “Study” concluded that originally a person’s voting record determined if they were partisan. Now it is defined as a person who is psychologically attached to an agenda or party platform. Based on the Left’s behavior today that works for me.

The change in partisan politics from support for party platform planks to personal aggrandizement and ideology is by far the most visible on the Left side of politics in America. The Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM) are so obsessed with their personal agendas that they will not let anything, including our Constitution interfere with their efforts to expand their personal power. In fact, they see our Constitution as the main thing standing between them and their personal agendas! They are so obsessed with destroying our Constitution they have taken their open attacks on our Constitution to unprecedented levels, and with the eager assistance of the MSM, they are flaunting it! Here are a few recent examples:

  • The Electoral College: People on the left have been working to destroy this core part of our Constitutional Republic election process for 20 years. Kristian Gillibrand, a New York Senator and Democratic candidate for president recently announced that she was going to introduce an amendment to a bill in congress to eliminate it! Ten states with liberal elected officials have passed, or introduced, state laws that change the way their states electors are allocated to candidates. These laws are in direct violation of our Constitution, but the Left does not care and insist this is a battle they can win.
  • Free Speech: Christiane Amanpour, during a CNN interview with James Comey asked why the FBI did not shut down “hate speech” like “lock her up”. She insisted that “hate speech” like that coming from the Trump campaign was “dangerous” and should be shut down. She only referenced “hate speech” coming for the Trump campaign, nothing about the blatant lies and accusations the Left is constantly spewing.
  • Religious Freedom: This freedom has been under constant attack for decades but during the past few years they seem to be especially focused on practicing Christians, while the Left is loudly insisting that people who are Muslims be protected from any form of discrimination.
  • Freedom of the Press: The Obama Administration illegally wire tapped Fox News reporter James Rosen and his family because they did not like his reporting as part of the White House Press Corps. This illegal spying on an American citizen morphed into a massive attack on many American’s “Freedom of Speech” when it became S.O.P. with the Obama Administration, especially during his second term. Practically everyone that publicly opposed the Left’s agenda was targeted. Not only did the Obama administration illegally spy on an untold number of American’s communications, their names and selected parts of their communications that could be used against them politically were “leaked” to members of the media that shared the Left’s views. This included the Trump campaign headquarters in Trump Tower! After the November 2016 election Obama ordered all US intelligence agencies to ramp up their surveillance efforts on the Trump campaign and transition team.
  • Gun Control: This Freedom has been under constant attack on a national, state and local level for decades. In recent years it has developed into a national movement with many organized and heavily funded groups working full time to destroy this freedom bit by bit. Their latest organized effort is to destroy the NRA financially. They are putting huge pressure on all financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers, large retail conglomerates and sporting goods companies to refuse to do business with the NRA, or associate with the NRA in any way. This effort is beginning to yield results and could destroy the NRA. The NRA is, in affect the last thing standing between us and the elimination of our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. As usual the Left wants a double standard for themselves and us. The “elite” can afford to live and work in places that have security systems, and in many places armed guards, but they do not think those of us in “Middle America (deplorables) should have the right to “own and bear arms”.
  • In one of my past articles I wrote about the Obama administration “stacking the deck” against Conservatives, especially after the November 2016 election. The Obama Administration’s policy was to hire as many Federal employees as possible and promote as many Federal employees as possible to positions of power in every Federal agency and department. After President Trump was elected Obama ordered every Federal agency and department to accelerate their hiring and promotion efforts to assure there were as many “Obamaites” (Obama worshipers and Trump haters) as possible in our Federal government. These people are still sabotaging the Trump administration every day in every way possible. One example that is happening right now is Congressman Elijah Cummings, Chair of the House Oversight Committee grossly misusing his position to promote claims made by a White House “whistle blower” (an Obamaite) that President Trump violated White House security approval procedures. According to the “Obamaite” the President ordered that dozens of his staff members, including members of his family be immediately given high level security clearances so they could begin work in his administration. Where were these “Security Officials” during the time between the election in November and the January 19 Presidential inauguration? This is just one of many constant examples of ranking Democrats continuing to use positions of power to unethically, and in many cases, illegally work at trying to destroy the Trump Presidency.

The double standard of justice in the Washington Cesspool is becoming even more visible!

What I have noted here is just more evidence that what I wrote about in previous articles was correct. The Left is totally obsessed with total power over everyone and everything in America and will go to any lengths to accomplish that. The first step in achieving that goal is to shred our Constitution. If they accomplish that America will be “Fundamentally Changed” FOREVER!

We cannot let any of this happen! Many times over the years I have talked about how brilliant and far seeing our Founding Fathers were! This is one of those times. I still wonder how they developed and got a Constitution ratified over 200 years ago that is still so relevant and strong in today’s world!

The Left’s Behavior is Guaranteeing President Trump Will Be Re-elected on November 5, 2020!

The Left, Democrats (especially their leadership in Washington), the RINO Republicans and the MSM are so obsessed with their hatred for President Trump and his supporters they have become completely irrational. Not only is everything they are doing going to guarantee his re-election, but he will win by an even bigger margin than he did in 2016. He will begin his second term with an even stronger mandate to “Make America Great Again” than he began his first term with. I also expect many of the hard-left anti-American Democrats will have a harder time getting re-elected than they have in the past! I do not understand how blind the Left is to how angry they are making “middle America” with their blatantly anti-American behavior! Here are just a few examples of how delusional and totally irrational the Left has become:

The Mueller probe lasted 675 days. To date they spent 40 million dollars (that the public has been made aware of?), 25 million by the Mueller team and another 15 million by the FBI and DOJ. Mueller had 19 high profile lawyers working on his team, predominantly liberals. There were 40 FBI agents and specialist working full time on the investigation. They issued over 2800 subpoenas, over 100 search warrants, over 230 orders for communication records, almost 50 “pen request” which allowed them to see every communication record of an individual or entity, 13 evidence request to foreign governments, and interviewed over 500 witnesses. And they got nothing on collusion or obstruction of justice! The only convictions they got were for things that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign! IT DID NOT HAPPEN! THIS WAS A TOTALLY ILLEGAL AND TREASONOUS INVESTIGATION STARTED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND PERPETUATED BY “OBAMAITES” STILL WORKING IN VARIOUS FEDERAL JOBS.

Now the Democrats, and their supporters are refusing to accept that they lost what they were sure was their immediate route to the White House! They are making what they know are unreasonable demands that confidential information be released to everyone (which would be a direct violation of federal law). They are also insisting that the summary report is a “cover up” and that they will escalate their congressional investigations to “find the truth”.

Many of the Democrats running for president are demanding that the selection process for the Supreme Court and the composition of the Court be drastically changed! Some even want term limits for the judges! It is interesting to note that the Democrats want to term limit the Judges, but not themselves! The reason for all this is because they know that with President Trump still in office for a full first term and being re-elected for a second term, he will make sure that the Court is a conservative one that follows the Constitution as it is written for many years! The Left wants a Supreme Court that is loaded with Liberals like Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her dislike for our Constitution is so strong that in 2012 she traveled to Egypt to give a series of speeches and recorded interviews. At the time Egypt was working on developing a new more Democratic Constitution of their own. In some of her remarks she said, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution” as a model for their new Constitution.

Another idea the Democrats are pushing is to make Puerto Rica and Washington DC states! This would instantly give the Democrats a (probably permanent) majority in the Senate and strengthen their majority in the House.

The Democrats also want to give convicted felons the right to vote. I believe that a felon that has paid their debt to society and wants to return to being a productive citizen should have the opportunity to earn back their right to vote. However, instantly giving all convicted felons back the right to vote would immediately deliver a huge voting bloc to the Democrats. In recent elections felons were caught absentee voting while they were still in jail!

The Democrats also want to eliminate the Electoral College. If this happens there would not be a reason for most people in “middle America” to vote!

The Democrats also want to lower the voting age to 16. With our education system increasingly dominated by Liberals this would instantly deliver a huge new voting bloc to the Democrats.

The Democrats also want to drastically change the composition of (the number of Senators) and the selection process for the senate. They also want to change the senate rules to do away with the 60-vote rule and the filibuster. The way they want to do this would guarantee the Democrats a permanent super majority in the Senate! With this they would totally control everything, including the Supreme Court!

The Democrats also want to limit free speech! The way they want to do this is by changing FCC rules in ways that would increase government controls over public communications and would benefit the Left!!

As you can see everything the Democrats want to do would take a huge bite out of the Constitution! That is their goal. They want a permanent super majority in both houses of congress and control of the White House. With that control the Constitution would be completely shredded and America would be “fundamentally changed” FOREVER! And they are openly talking about all this and even flaunting what their plans are!

We cannot let any of this happen! Many times over the years I have talked about how brilliant and far seeing our Founding Fathers were! This is one of those times. I still wonder how they developed and got a Constitution ratified over 200 years ago that is still so relevant and strong in today’s world!

The Left is Openly Executing its Detailed Plan to Replace President Trump With Pelosi!

If President Trump is forced out of office the V.P. becomes President. If Pence is forced out after he became President without a V.P. in office (Pence would never get a two thirds majority in both houses no matter who he wanted as V.P.) Pelosi would become President. In this situation Pelosi would name a V.P. of her choice, subject to majority approval by both houses of Congress. Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller are the only examples of this in our history.

I think that the Left knows it cannot defeat Donald Trump in November 2020. They will never admit this but everything they are doing is aimed at destroying his Administration and as many of his family and supporters they can, even if it happens after he is re-elected. Note: I consider the Left to be almost all Democrats, the RINO Republicans and the MSM. They are all eager participants in the detailed traitorous plan to take the White House away from those of us that elected Donald Trump. A look at some facts proves that this is happening, and the Left is no longer concerned about what they are doing being unethical, illegal and in some cases Treason. As noted in my article last week thefirst part of the Merriam Webster definition of Treason is: “the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country”.

I am not the only person who thinks that the Left knows it cannot defeat President Trump in November 2020 but will never admit it. Rush Limbaugh talked about this at length on his radio show one afternoon last week, and I have heard other people talk about this on Fox News.

Here are a few examples of the Left’s deliberate efforts to destroy the Trump Administration, and totally take over America:

  • California, including Los Angeles county is being forced to clean up their voter registration rolls as a result of the settlement agreement of a Judicial Watch law suit against them. California and many of its counties have refused to clean up their voter registration rolls even though it is required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA requires states and counties to remove voter registrations when the voter does not vote in two consecutive general federal elections. These are usually people who have moved to another county or state or have died. It is interesting to note that Los Angeles county has a total population that is larger than the total population of 41 of our states. Judicial Watch reported that Los Angeles county has more people on its voter registration rolls than it has citizens old enough to vote. These numbers are the reason the Left is so obsessed with getting rid of the Electoral College and letting illegals vote. Accomplishing either of these goals will guarantee that a Conservative Republican will probably never win a national election again and America will become a one-party Socialist country. The Democrats took the first step in getting illegals to vote recently when they passed legislation in the House that made it easier for people to commit voter fraud. After the bill passed Pelosi and other prominent Democrats went on record publicly encouraging illegals to vote whenever they could. The Democrat Party position is that everyone should be allowed to vote in local and state elections! NVRA prevents illegals from voting in national elections (for now) but state, county and municipal elections are not regulated by the NVRA!
  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass) proposed an amendment to HR1 that would change the legal voting age to 16! People who are 16 years old are usually less informed about politics than people who are 18 and more easily influenced. People who are 16 years old usually have two more years in school which makes them prime targets for liberal educator’s indoctrination.
  • Rep Schiff and his staff made four trips to N.Y. City to meet with Cohen and his “Clinton Fixer” lawyer, Lanny Davis to prepare Cohen for his testimony before Schiff’s committee. Schiff initially denied this but when it became public (thanks to Fox News) the Democrats issued a public statement insisting that this was perfectly OK and was “Standard Operating Procedure” in situations like this. I am now absolutely convinced that the Democrats are colluding with Cohen to get him to say what they want him to say in exchange for reconsideration of his pending prison sentence.
  • The recent release of the transcript of Bruce Ohr’s testimony before a congressional committee proves without any doubt that Rep Schiff, and other Democrats lied publicly and colluded with top FBI and DOJ officials to influence the election and later to try to impeach President Trump. Ohr was an associate Attorney General at the DOJ and is just one of the top FBI and DOJ officials who have been fired or forced out of office since President Trump was sworn in for inappropriate and\or illegal behavior while in office.
  • Tom Perez, the Chairman of the DNC publicly announced that Fox News would not be allowed to host any of the 12 scheduled Democratic Presidential Candidate debates, “because they are not a news organization”. I do not believe that any other media organization has a potential debate moderator team that is as honest, balanced, knowledgeable and professional as a Bret Bair, Martha McCallum and Chris Wallace team would be and has been in the past!
  • Every House committee and sub-committee chair is dramatically ramping up investigations of “everything Trump” and spending many millions of taxpayer dollars in the process. Rep. Nadler and Rep. Schiff are two of the most aggressive chairs. Schiff even hired a former federal prosecutor and recent MSNBC legal analyst to “lead his committee’s investigations into Trump’s Russia collusion”.  
  • Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, General Flynn and their family’s lives have been totally destroyed based on Mueller investigations that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign and were way outside Mueller’s special prosecutor mandate. Mueller and his staff covered this up by referring these prosecutions to state prosecutors. John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff and Hillary’s campaign chair, and his brother Tony did some of the same things Manafort has been convicted of but no one seems to be concerned about that? Manafort has been held in federal prison in solitary confinement pending sentencing for FINANCIAL CRIMES! His initial sentencing was earlier this week. He was sentenced to 4.7 years in federal prison. His health has deteriorated to the point that he will most certainly die in prison. When the sentence was announced the Democrats immediately began to loudly and publicly say that the length of the sentence was an, “outrageous miscarriage of justice”! They insisted that it should have been much longer!
  • Rep. Tlaib held a press conference this week to announce that she was going to introduce a resolution calling for Trump’s Impeachment.
  • The Democrats refused to say that anything Rep. Omar has said or done has been wrong or out of order. All you have to do to see that this is not right is log into the internet or turn on a TV! Instead of condemning Omar in any way the Democrats passed an “all encompassing” bill condemning all forms of hate speech or discriminating behavior by anyone. This was an absolute and unnecessary waste of legislative time and taxpayer dollars! 

As predicted the Left has succeeded in the first part of their plan to take over the White House. That was to prevent anything from getting done in Washington until they destroy the Trump Presidency. However, I still think that they are grossly underestimating President Trump and his patriotic supporters!

Post Script: In a press interview with The Washington Post on Monday, March 11, 2019 Pelosi said she would not pursue impeachment against Trump because he “was not worth it”. However, she left herself an “out” when she said, “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan”. She is also letting all her House committee chairs continue to waste millions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of legislative hours digging for dirt on the Trump administration. It appears that she had to make this statement because Mueller is about to end his unethical and illegal investigation with nothing to show for it! The radical wing of her party is openly rebelling against this.

Facts for Michael Moore, Madonna, Katy Perry, Ashley Judd, et all

Fact 1: You have the right in America to free speech and peaceful assembly. However the right to free speech does not allow people to publicly say things like Madonna said at the rally in Washington, “I have thought a lot about blowing up the White House”! You also need to be aware that you do not have the right to declare an election for the U.S. President invalid because you do not like the results. You DO NOT speak for all of America. At the regret of sounding arrogant “obamaish” I will repeat what he rudely said to Senator John McCain in one of the extremely rare times he actually made a weak attempt to do his job and held a bi-partisan meeting at the White House. Obama said, “Elections have consequences, I won”.

Donald Trump won this election with a big Electoral College margin. That is not going to change. Regarding the Electoral College, I have written and published articles about the Electoral College several times in recent months and about how brilliant and far sighted our Founding Fathers were when they created it over 200 years ago. It was created as a way to form the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I firmly believe that without the Electoral College, the Constitution would not have been ratified by all the states that existed at the time. I am also convinced that the Electoral College is as critical to our way of life today as it was then. It prevents California and New York City from having the final say in who our President is and what our national and international policies will be! The Electoral College is part of our Constitution and is NOT going to be changed!

Fact 2: The Democratic Party is DEAD. You Liberals killed it and are in the process of making sure it cannot be revived in any of our lifetimes. You lost the White House, both Houses of the US Congress, most of the State Governments and you are going to eventually lose the Supreme Court, regardless of what Senator Schumer said! You reappointed Nancy Pelosi as House Minority leader, you are about to appoint Keith Ellison (a RADICAL RACIST AMERICA HATING MUSLIM) as head of the National Democratic Party. You have twenty two Democratic Senators up for reelection in the mid-term elections in 2018. Many of these Senators are in states that President Trump easily won. In case you do not understand what will likely happen in the 2018 elections in these states? It means that after these elections the Democratic Party will be even more DEAD than it is now!  With 65 to 70 of the 100 Senate seats filled by solid Republicans after the 2018 elections no one can prevent President Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court from being approved, and there will likely be at least three of the nine replaced in the next four years!

Fact 3: President Trump’s Cabinet choices are the most successful, qualified, patriotic picks that I have ever seen. Schumer can grand stand for the TV cameras and the rino Republicans can let him get away with delaying their approval but he cannot stop their approval. They will serve America WELL! I wrote about what an extraordinary group of people they are in my article published last week.

Fact 4, my final note in this article: No democratic country has ever survived when it stopped being a strong two party country! You self-centered pompous asses are destroying our country and the “sheeple” are following you!  For example the LGBTQ “dance party” on Vice President Elect Pence’s front lawn DID NOT HELP YOUR CAUSE! Look in the mirror and WAKE UP before it is too late!
