When it comes to analyzing election cycles, Newt Gingrich has excelled for more than a generation. When he writes an article that talks about a looming Trump landslide, I listen. Speaker Gingrich’s article cites 5 things that point to a Trump re-election landslide: “economy, stature, patriotism, issue insanity, and progress on health issues.” Speaker Gingrich starts with the booming economy.

Gingrich notes that the “lowest African American and Latino unemployment rates recorded in history are beginning to create approval for Trump in those communities that no Republican in modern times has been able to do. The rise in manufacturing jobs and salaries are becoming advantages for President Trump. Meanwhile, the Democrats are campaigning on the economy as though they were in another country. Faced with continuous job and wage growth, it is hard to make a compelling case against the Trump economy.”

Meanwhile, the Democrats’ presidential candidates campaign like we’re living in a country titled Soupline America. They don’t believe their own words. It’s just that they know that admitting that things are going pretty well pretty much dooms their campaigns while the leaders of the Resist Movement simmer as the Trump administration wins another fight. Gingrich notes that President Trump’s economy is the underpinning for everything else.

Issue insanity is beginning to erode the Democrats.

In 1972, McGovern was an outlier. He clearly represented the radical wing of the Democratic Party. It was relatively easy for most Democrats to say, “I am not him.” At the same time, President Nixon, scarred by losing in 1960 and 1962 and having won a very narrow election in 1968, kept Republican resources focused on his re-election and failed to help congressional Republicans. The result was the largest presidential popular vote percentage in modern history (60.7 percent) for the Republican president, while Republicans lost two Senate seats and only gained 12 house seats.

Today is dramatically worse for Democrats than in 1972. Instead of having one likable but wacky left-wing radical, every single candidate in the second debate raised his or her hand for positions that are simply unacceptable to most Americans. If McGovern could be separated out as “the radical” almost 50 years ago, look where we are today. Every plausible nominee has radical positions – and the House and Senate Democrats are voting for radical positions on issue after issue. Furthermore, President Trump has learned the cost of a left-wing Democratic Speaker and will be spending resources to help Kevin McCarthy of California become speaker.

AOC is everything except an official part of the Trump campaign. While she talks about concentration camps, Americans roll their eyes in disbelief. It isn’t that they think that everything is fine at these detention centers. It’s that they don’t believe Democrats’ claims of forcing women to drink from a toilet.

Further, the American people are looking at that situation while wondering why Democrats haven’t worked with President Trump to fix a truly broken immigration system. If there is divided government, the people expect the different parties to work together and fix things. While President Trump offers reasonable proposals, AOC proposes to get rid of ICE, then the Department of Homeland Security and Rashida Tlaib accuses CBP of major human rights violations.

I’ve said for several months that the biggest thing that Republicans have going for them is the Democrats’ nuttiness. It isn’t just that Democrats are wrong on the issues. It’s that they’re crazier than a shithouse rat. We know that Democrats are nuts when AOC accuses Nancy Pelosi of being a racist, then denies that she called the Democrat leader a racist several hours later.

Meanwhile, Democrats criticize the Trump administration for enforcing the laws:

Democrats have become the party that doesn’t believe in enforcing existing laws. To hear AOC talk about it, you’d swear that the people of law enforcement are Nazis. That’s pretty nuts. That’s why Democrats, if they don’t grow a spine and stand up to AOC’s Squad, will get their butts handed to them in November, 2020.

This article is good news in the sense that things are improving. It’s also proof that we shouldn’t get too giddy just yet because, while there’s been significant improvement, there’s still plenty of need for improvement in the coming months.

According to CBS’s reporting, “U.S. authorities apprehended more than 94,000 migrants in between ports of entry along the southern border, a precipitous drop from May, when more than 132,000 people, including about 84,000 families and over 11,000 unaccompanied minors, were apprehended. The total number of apprehensions that month was a 13-year high.”

Apparently, Mexico’s help has dropped illegal crossings. That’s proof that President Trump’s threatened tariffs helped break the logjam with Mexico. Without that tactic, it’s doubtful that Mexico would’ve agreed to helping us as much as they’ve helped thus far. Still, monitoring the situation is imperative. Despite these attempts to shut the border off, Democrats don’t want the laws enforced:


Beyond that, Pelosi is giving illegal immigrants advice on how to avoid ICE:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday offered advice to illegal immigrants seeking to avoid arrest and deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. “An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant. If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in,” said Pelosi, reading from prepared remarks at her weekly press conference.

These raids will be on people who’ve sought asylum, have had their day in court and had their applications rejected. These won’t be random raids in neighborhoods where illegal aliens congregate. These are people who applied for asylum and were rejected through impartial courts.

Matt Gaetz took Democrats to the woodshed on the Democrats’ denial that there was a border crisis:

Why anyone would think that the Democrats’ presidential nominee has a fighting chance 16 months from now is beyond me. Don’t tell me about the latest polls showing Sleepy Joe Biden, Crazy Bernie Sanders or a handful of other Democrats defeating him at this point. Each of those polls comes with a fatal flaw. That fatal flaw consists of 6 words that change everything. The fatally flawed words are “if the election was held today.”

Unfortunately for Democrats, and luckily for the nation, the election won’t be held until Nov. 3, 2020. Another thing that will work in President Trump’s favor and in the GOP’s favor is what’s happening beneath the public’s radar. What’s happening beneath the public radar is Brad Parscale, President Trump’s campaign manager, building a machine. During a recent interview with FNC’s Martha MacCallum, Parscale told her that he’ll have a volunteer army of 2,000,000 people to knock on doors and man the phone banks. That’s in addition to having already built out the campaign headquarters in Washington, DC and New York City. That’s in addition to the RNC already staffing field offices in all 50 states. Newt Gingrich put it perfectly in this interview:

But I digress. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Kurt Schlichter’s latest article highlights just how foolish Democrats are:

You gotta hand it to them – it’s an innovative strategy to run for President by taking the position that your country is garbage and that its are people deplorable monsters. It’ll be interesting to see how the Democrats fare on their “America sucks!” platform. The last week has seen Team Donkey take brave stands against the flag and celebrating our military, and you would half expect them to next advocate for something insanely suicidal, like taking your health insurance or forcing you to pay for illegal aliens’ doctors. Oh wait, that happened too.

Let’s see how this is adding up. Democrats have told Americans that they’re for taking away these Americans’ employer-provided health insurance and replacing it with government-run health care. Democrats also told Americans that they want American taxpayers to pay for illegal aliens’ health care.

Joe Biden, the Democrats’ leading idiot, justified taxpayer funding of health care for illegal aliens this way:

Biden is right that a significant portion of illegal aliens came in legally. The fact that the Obama-Biden administration didn’t even attempt to fix that crisis the last 5+ years of their administration speaks to how unserious the Obama-Biden administration was on this issue. That being said, conditions at the border have dramatically changed.

Remember Larry Tribe insisting that the 2 tanks and the 2 fighting machines reminded him of the Chinese forces who mowed down peace protesters in Tiananmen Square?


Remember AOC telling dishonest reporters that CBP put “women in rooms without running water”, then telling those same dishonest reporters that those same women stuck in a room that didn’t have running water were drinking water out of toilets? If you don’t, this should help refresh your memory. Make sure to watch the video of AOC lying through her teeth.

Please explain to me why we should ever let any of these Democrats within 1,000 miles of America’s levers of control. I’d argue that AOC, Biden and Harris in charge would be a total disaster for the US. They’d be worse than Obama. PS- That’s something I didn’t think I’d hear myself say, especially with the bitter memories of the Obama-Biden administration so fresh.

Yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made some disgusting statements about the detention facilities in Clint, TX. From the start, I suspected that she’d lied. This article highlights AOC’s initial accusations:

“After I forced myself into a cell w/ women & began speaking to them, one of them described their treatment at the hands of officers as “psychological warfare” – waking them at odd hours for no reason, calling them wh*res, etc. Tell me what about that is due to a ‘lack of funding?’” she wrote on Twitter.

Here’s AOC’s tweets:


What a liar. It’s stunning to hear AOC’s BS. In a brief interview, AOC first said that women were put in facilities without running water. Later in the interview, she said that border patrol ordered women to drink from toilets. Here’s a question that hasn’t been asked: if a facility doesn’t have running water, how can women be ordered to drink from toilets?

AOC’s problem is that she’s so intent on spinning the most horrific lies that she doesn’t realize that her statements conflict with each other. With AOC, it’s all about shocking people. It isn’t about telling the truth. I can’t give her the benefit of any doubt because she’s that dishonest. Right at the start of this interview, AOC tells her controversial whopper:

AOC passionately stated “They [Customs & Border Protection] put them in a room with no running water and these women were being told by CBP officers to drink out of the toilet. They were drinking water out of the toilet.” As I said earlier, it’s impossible to reconcile the notion of women in a facility that doesn’t have running water drinking water out of a toilet. I’d argue that AOC conflated multiple issues into one horrific-sounding event.

I mentioned in the title of this post that some Hispanic pastors visited the facilities. Their recollection was significantly different:

“I read the reports, saw the news clips. I just wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system,” Rodriguez, who has advised President Trump and both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush on immigration reform, noted. “To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse. Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.

“We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez remarked, adding he specifically asked border agents if they staged the facility in response to the negative press. “They unequivocally denied it — we were witnessing the identical conditions the attorneys saw when they toured the facility days earlier.”

Notice that Pastor Rodriguez called himself a “veteran of immigration advocacy” across 3 administrations. This isn’t a Trump shill. Perhaps the best way to finish this article is with this video of Glenn Beck being semi-sarcastic and semi-serious:

If Democrats aren’t hesitating in calling Republicans heartless bastards, then we might as well wear that lie like a badge of honor. Republicans are trying their best to stop illegal alien children from spending their nights in difficult conditions. Despite those efforts, Republicans are getting called one despicable name after another.

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday called into question the nation’s immigration laws, asking ‘What is the point?’ of tracking down fugitives ordered out of the country?” To be fair, here’s what the entire quote says:

“It’s so appalling, it’s outside the circle of human behavior, kicking down doors, splitting up families. In terms of interior enforcement, what is the purpose? What is the point?”

Splitting up ‘families’ is the worst mortal sin a Republican can commit but obeying the laws that Congress passes and the president signs is immoral? What type of tortured logic does Speaker Pelosi employ?

By Ms. Pelosi’s definition, I’m a heartless bastard. By normal people’s standards, I’m a well-adjusted, thoughtful individual. I’d rather be defined by what people outside the beltway think than by people living inside the Beltway.

I actually think that politicians should know history. For instance, when idiots like AOC or Ilhan Omar think that detention centers are the same as Nazi concentration camps, I’m heartless enough to say that stupidity like that should be punished. Better yet, when Rep. Omar lied to the IRS while filing false joint tax returns, people like me think that Rep. Omar should be held accountable.

According to the Beltway intelligentsia, that makes me either a xenophobe or Islamophobe or both. I’d prefer being called a heartless bastard instead. As a Christian, I’m taught that a) everyone is created in God’s own image, b) we should treat others as we’d like to be treated and c) we should love our neighbors unconditionally. Talk about defining a heartless bastard!

Let’s get serious for a minute. I won’t let a bunch of left-wing reprobates lecture me about American values. Speaker Pelosi knows as little about American values as Rep. Omar, which is virtually nothing. I refuse to accept a lecturing from Speaker Pelosi on American values. I didn’t accept President Obama’s lectures about who we were or what American priorities were. I won’t accept lecturing from other hardline progressives who hate America or constantly apologize for America.

If you’ve voted Democrat your entire adult life but you’re starting to question Democrats, it’s time for you to join the #WalkawayCampaign or #TheHeartlessBastardsClub. Better yet, join both. If you’re wondering why you should ditch the Democrats, this heartfelt video should explain things perfectly:

The point is that conservatives aren’t heartless bastards. We just believe in living an orderly life that doesn’t trample on other people’s rights. We just ask that people around us respect our rights too. That isn’t too much to ask, is it?

To hear “Al Otro Lado, a binational advocacy group that provides legal assistance to migrants seeking asylum” talk about yesterday’s incident at the border, women and children refugees “were peacefully demonstrating in Mexico” when they were “injured by tear gas launched by US authorities.” To read this article, though, you’d get a different picture.

According to the article, “some have organized protests to pressure U.S. officials to devote more resources to speed up the process. On Sunday, one of those protests, peaceful at first, turned chaotic when several hundred migrants broke away, overwhelming Mexican federal police officers before rushing a border fence and attempting to illegally enter the U.S. In response, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers shut down both south and northbound traffic at the San Ysidro border crossing south of San Diego for nearly six hours.”

If you read Daniel Chaitin’s article, you get the real story:

The Mexican government announced Sunday evening that it will deport nearly 500 migrants who rushed the U.S. border between Tijuana and San Diego, Calif. In a statement, Mexico’s interior department said these migrants were captured with the help of local authorities of the government from the state of Baja California and will be deported after attempting to cross the border “violently” and “illegally.”

Here’s the important information:

Videos and photos of the migrants, including children, crossing a footbridge over a canal in Tijuana as they headed to the border were posted to social media. The incident prompted both the U.S. and Mexico to shut down the port of entry on their respective sides.

It’s obvious that Al Otro Lado isn’t telling the truth.

Just when I didn’t think Democrats couldn’t get nuttier, they prove me wrong. This time, Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-Calif.), showed her nuts-beyond-belief credentials while questioning Ronald D. Vitiello, who is President Trump’s nominee to become the permanent ICE director.

Here’s the exchange between Sen. Harris and Director Vitiello:

Minutes later Ms. Harris, a California Democrat who’s eyeing a 2020 presidential bid, said there are “many” people who perceive ICE officers as similar to KKK thugs in using violence and intimidation. “I’m very specific about what I’m asking,” she said. “Are you aware that there’s a perception that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America?”

“I see no perception that puts ICE in the same category as the KKK,” Mr. Vitiello retorted.

What type of grandstanding jackass thinks that ICE and the KKK are perceived the same way? This isn’t a serious interrogation because ICE is nothing like the KKK. First, the KKK tried striking fear in the hearts of minorities because they wanted the US to stay segregated. Next, the KKK hated the people that they intimidated. They thought that African-Americans were subhuman, which gave the KKK permission to torment them. Finally, the KKK intimidated African-Americans while breaking the law and while hiding their identities.

ICE enforces the law. They don’t hate illegal aliens and they certainly don’t hide their identities. Other than that, they’re nothing like the KKK.

Sen. Harris is disgusting. She’s grandstanding and she knows it. She’s trying to stand out from the other nobodies running for the Democrat presidential nomination.

In this article, Keith Ellison, the DFL’s disgraced candidate for Minnesota’s Attorney General’s office, is quoted as saying “I value and honor all members of law enforcement and am grateful for the work they do every single day.”

With all due respect to Rep. Ellison, that’s a pile of BS. This letter supports #BlackLivesMatter, not law enforcement:

In the letter to the Bloomington City Attorney, Ellison is quoted as saying “I am writing in response to reports that you are considering issuing charges against the organizers of the Black Lives Matters protest at the Mall of America on Saturday, December 20.”

He then adds this:

I request that you reconsider using your prosecutorial discretion to issue such charges. The purpose of the protest was to draw attention to concerns about police-community relations in light of the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and others in confrontations with police.

Ellison finished his letter by saying this:

The demonstrations didn’t damage property and protesters remained peaceful the throughout the demonstration. Many Minnesotans were inconvenienced during the holiday shopping season and I understand their frustration. Nonetheless, I encourage you and city leaders to consider the broader context of what the protest represented…

Does that sound like a letter who “values and honors all members of law enforcement”? It sounds more like something that a Black Lives Matter activist might say.

Keith Ellison isn’t hiding the fact that he won’t uphold laws he doesn’t like. That’s what he’s saying in this video:

Ellison said “If the state legislature passes laws that don’t make sense, but are constitutional, then I’m going to have to cross that bridge when I get to it.” That statement is what I’d expect from a narcissist who thinks he’s the ultimate decider of which laws get enforced and which once won’t. Ellison isn’t arguing for the principle of prosecutorial discretion. He didn’t mention a lack of resources.

Specifically, Ellison talked about laws “that don’t make sense” but that are constitutional. Who gives him the authority to determine which laws makes sense? I’m certain that Minnesota’s Constitution doesn’t. What are Ellison’s criteria for judging which laws make sense?

Apparently, being Minnesota’s chief law enforcement officer doesn’t interest Ellison, either:

Apparently, Ellison thinks that the Minnesota Attorney General’s office should be used to thwart President Trump’s agenda or advance the Democrats’ agenda. What else did he mean when he said “Some of my opponents have been trying to argue that I’m going to sort of leave the federal Congress to come back to Minnesota to try to use the state Attorney General’s Office as some sort of political platform. And the truth is I do plan on doing some national litigation.”

If Democrats want to sue President Trump, then let them raise the money and open their own law firm. Minnesota’s taxpayers shouldn’t pay the price for Keith Ellison’s or the Democrats’ activism.

The choice couldn’t be clearer. A vote for Keith Ellison is a vote for advancing the Democrats’ agenda of obstructing President Trump by any means necessary. A vote for Doug Wardlow is a vote to restore law and order in Minnesota.

The good news is that law enforcement got their man. It’s been confirmed that “A male suspect was arrested in Florida on Friday morning in connection with the rash of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News. A law enforcement source told Fox News that the suspect is a white male in his 50s, a former New Yorker, who lives in Aventura, Florida, who had prior arrests for terroristic threats. Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura.”

From the start, law enforcement was confident they’d get their man. Their confidence was apparently justified.

The Miami-Dade County Police Department confirmed Thursday it was helping federal agents who were at the facility in Opa-locka as part of the ongoing investigation. The USPS operates an innovative imaging system that photographs each piece of mail processed throughout the country. Investigators were likely relying on that system to pinpoint where some of the packages were mailed.

Another key part of their quick apprehension of the alleged criminal was the forensic material they recovered:

A government source told Fox News the FBI was analyzing the stamps in Quantico. The source also said the investigation had progressed “significantly” and that the FBI was reaching out to retailers to zero in on where the elements of the bombs were made and where they were sold.

The envelopes and packaging materials likely contained a treasure trove of DNA information. Tiny bits of genetic material, traces of sweat, skin cells, saliva, hair or fingerprints, are typically used as a roadmap to the suspect’s door, investigators and bomb experts say.

From the start, this was a matter of when, not if, they’d catch the perpetrator.
