See The Democrat Party Has Become A Mortal Enemy of The People of The U.S., and Of The Nation As Founded from "The Morning Report 7-17-19" at Ace of Spades (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance for the title used in this blog post).

Salient excerpt:
...The Democrat Party has gone from being merely a political enemy and morphed into a mortal enemy not just of the GOP and conservatives, but of the nation as founded, its distinct culture, traditions, heritage and its people. The spectacle over the last few days that we have had to endure, which is solely and wholly at the feet of the Democrat-Media Complex, will go down as a low point in our history, naturally depending upon who gets to write that history. For me, almost as repulsive as having to listen to the effluent coming from the flapping castanets of the Febrile Four Females of "The Squad" aka "The Aristocrats!" are the fools, stooges and confederates of the anti-Trump persuasion who cast equal if not more blame on this President and by extension the majority of the American people.

President Trump has rightly called them out in the plainest of terms for who and what they are and what they have said, vis a vis the bald-faced lies about or immigration and detention policies and more generally the nation and its citizens....The attitude and meaning of the phrase "America, love it or leave it" is unambiguous, and the only crime in Trump saying what amounts to that sentiment is that for far too long it has gone unsaid....

  1. This article is not unique in this, but I fail to see the point of expending so many words of empty sloganeering, designed to appeal to people who already agree with the message.

    I do however, wish people would stop bloviating about "mortal enemies" and "final solutions"....and lead by example and do something about it. It would be refreshing....

    1. Good idea!

      I think YOU should be the one to start doing something about it, and set a fine example against which all others in future would be measured.

      I'm sure you're well suited to the task.

    3. You don't do reading comprehension well, do you?

      I didn't call anyone "mortal enemies", or like you...call for a "final solution".

      That ball is in your court, if you have the stones to support what you write.

  2. This needs to be said, and more people need to be saying it. The Democrat party is a clear and present danger to our "nation as founded, its distinct culture, traditions, heritage and its people."

    The most dangerous piece of this is how the Infotainment Media Complex acts as their eager handmaiden.

      That's a legitimate argument. Is bumper sticker rhetoric the best way to get likely voters to the polls and pull the lever against the Democrats? I'm guessing the GOP believes so.

    2. CI,
      In this case, IMO, the bumper sticker rhetoric is accurate.

    3. I have been arguing for years that the self-pleasuring rightwing porn that appeals to the peanut gallery does the cause no good and actually drives away people in the broad middle.

      So, I repeat, this needs to be said and said often, but the GOOP and cons need to adjust their tone and rhetoric to appeal to that broad middle. the rightwing nuts are already on board.

      Democrats are consciously and deliberately destroying our nation as founded, its distinct culture, traditions, and heritage. They are also selling our birthright out from under us and rendering citizenship almost meaninglesss.

      The GOOP shares blame in all of this, but the propaganda ops and firepower is coming from the Dems.

    4. Outside of tax cuts and some judge appointments, DJ Trump has ownership of all of the accomplishments the last 2.5 years. Repubs need to be replaced by Americans.

      DJT was elected though because of his non-political creds and straight talk. It is what will get him elected again. Moving to the middle can wait if you ask me.

      Delete
    5. Kid,

      I'm not saying move to the middle. I'm saying appeal to the middle. You can do that without going squishy on your positions. It all about tone and rhetoric.

      Delete
    6. SF, Ok, I can easily criticize some of DJT's comments or tweets myself. Definitely some were completely unnecessary and unhelpful.
      This is an area that imo is very hard to define, especially given the total bombardment of DJT from the left, democrats and media.
      I'm going to file it under "perfection is impossible".

      To me, we are in an environment where the media is telling us to embrace islam, Kindergarten kids are exposed to drag queens and they and kids even 10 years old are being told that sodomy and oral sex and sex with condoms is safe sex.

      I think that cannot be ignored and requires a strong comeback.

      Though I get your point. Elections are ALL About the independents. The morons who can't figure out what is really going on here from one day to the next.

      Delete
    7. Kid, as usual, is perfectly correct in his good, plain-spoken common sense analysis.

      In my view, it will not be the Leftists OR the Libertarian Originalists –– wrongly branded as "Hotheaded Rightwing Extremists" –– who will bring down the Republic as designed by our enlightened Founders. Instead it will be the TEPID, PUSILLANIMOUS, WHEY-FACED M_O_D_E_R_A_T_E_S who pride themselves on being "dispassionate," have no real convictions, and tend to blow with the prevailing wind who'll rot us out from within.

      Moderates are the kind of people who earnestly want to believe it's possible to win a Debate with the Devil using Roberts Rules of Order..

    8. By the way average people are more apt to respond to cleverly worded catchphrases and pithy little sayings than they are to ponderous, erudite, closely-reasoned philsophical TOMES densely filled with acres of turgid academic prose.

      If I hope to introduce someone to classical music with the idea in minc of persuading him to want to hear more of it, and learn more about it, I wouldn't try to make him sit through Wagner's Ring Cycle or a two-and-a-half hour performance of Bach's Saint Matthew Passion.

    9. You can do that without going squishy on your positions. It all about tone and rhetoric.

      Exactly. If one has to rely on reflexive pejoratives and vapid memes, they're tacitly admitting that their argument cannot stand on it own merits. They’re appealing to emotion in the manner of Leftists. Such tactics are a tell....a dog whistle; either the speaker/writer is the lowest common denominator, or they think the audience is.

      If one is employing such tactics in defense of actual Conservative ideals, they’re not only debasing themselves but cheapening Conservatism with regard to the rest of us. Truth, facts and reason can be easily conveyed with wit and elan - but that's not for the intellectually lazy.

      Perhaps an objective argument could be made, from a base numbers position, that appealing to the demographic that is sans critical thought and susceptible to such makes some sense coming voting day - if you were absolutely certain that they would raise their doughy asses off of the couch and get to the polls.

      But I suspect that these possible voters already belong to one party or the other. We have plenty of evidence of that...

    12. Maybe, voter turnout writ large, was down compared to both the 2008 & 2012 elections.

  3. I believe there is a patriotic imperative to oppose the radical (neo-communist) Democratic Party, but do not believe we can do this by responding in kind to their nonsensical and imbecilic rhetoric. Trump’s policy successes are self-evident. If we intend to win in the next election, we must emphasize his formidable record rather than engaging infantile banter.

    1. AMEN!

      But the majority – on both the Left AND Right –– seem to enjoy tossing rhetorical grenades at one another from behind separate-but-equal barricades.

      As a result, we live with a series of "Violent Stalemates" of varying degrees of scope and intensity.

      I know your assessment is correct, Mustang, but I have to say that our worst enemy is Human Nature, itself.

      We've been fighting each other for untold thousnds of years, because only a tiny handful of us have ever had a legitimate claim to being considered "ENLIGHTENED."

      In my view being technologically advanced my prove we are very SMART, but gives us NO CLAIM to being ENLIGHTENED.

      It's one thing to KNOW the Truth, but it's something very different to be faced with the vast degree of cyncal DISBELIEF in others.

      The only way I can cope with this feeling of hopelessness is to try every day to strengthen my determination to trust in the superior wisdom of Almghty God, and stop letting myself feel angry and frustrated that no one cares a RAP what I know –– or like to think I know.

      Delete
    2. Franco, human nature is the issue primarily because in a cynical drive to further weaken the foundation of our democratic institutions (the cracks are well exposed) by exploiting the fear of the "other".


      Making "The Squad" the acting representatives of progressives is as short sighted as calling Dems neo-communists. When you tell duly elected reps to leave you further expose the cracks..

      A few more years of this and we could be deep in authoritarianism.

    5. Ducky,

      Bring in enough people with different mores, societal norms, languages and cultures, and you will "fundamentally transform" our nation.

      That was Obama's stated goal, and the four stooges in the Jihad Squad have adopted that cause with zeal.

      Most of us like this nation as it is, even as we improve and continue righting past wrongs.

      Diversity in itself in not a virtue. That is leftwing progressive BS.

      CAPICHE?

      PROGRESSIvES –– i.e. Cultural Marxists –– would insist that ALL those godawful combinations would b bound to make splendid culinary innovations that everyone in the names of Innovation and Diversity OUGHT to be oh-so eager to try.

  5. _____ IT HAS BEEN EVER THUS _____

    The nature of Establishment protects
    Itself from upstarts seeking sweeping change.
    A groundswell of rebellion projects
    A threat to those whose dully narrow range
    Will seek to serve itself with instincts feral
    Concerned with naught but selfish interests bared
    Caring not that Principle’s in peril
    By selfish drones and not by those who’ve dared
    To challenge each smug wasted senile oaf
    Who’s long outlived his usefulness yet clings
    To power as ‘twere a Divine Right to loaf
    Thwarting those who hope that Freedom rings
    Again to rouse the blighted land
    ‘Gainst Tyranny once more to raise its hand.

  6. Speaking of Trump's record, to which Mustang alluded above:

    On Regulation, Trump Exceeds His Campaign Promises. Excerpt:

    Candidate Donald Trump famously promised to get rid of two federal regulations for every new one. With 2 1/2 years in office under his belt, he has vastly exceeded that standard.

    1. On the other hand, it looks to me as if Trump and this Congress made a bad deal yesterday with the budget agreement.

      Delete
    2. It is a bad deal, but the larger issue is, our government refuses to link debt ceiling with federal budgets, and of course, they are inextricably linked.

      By the time we hit a debt ceiling limit, it is too late to do the budgeting. The money is already committed. I am firmly in the camp that does not want to see anything close to a government-caused "default."

      2/3 of the federal budget is mandatory spending and interest on the debt, and that proportion is growing. Maneuver room is shrinking. This is what is causing budget growth.

      Chances Congress and the President will address this in a meaningful way? ZERO

  8. My favorite video is one of Ilhan Omar a few years ago, interviewed in front of a large audience and saying "It was SO funny to see my professor cringe when he said AL QAEDA! (lots of laughter from the indoctrinated idiots she's sucking up to in the audience) He didn't cringe at ALL when he said 'AMERICA'!"

    And this woman is in our government.
