The Democrats’ lead in the generic ballot polling is just the symptom of a bigger problem that Democrats haven’t addressed. Right now, Democrats don’t have a unified economic message. It’s fair to argue that they don’t have an economic message. This article doesn’t touch on the pickle that Democrats find themselves in, though it highlights a few important things.

For instance, the article quotes Hank Sheinkopf as saying “Every time [Democrats] deny the economy is starting to turn or get better for certain parts of the population, they also hurt themselves. They appear to be cheering on bad news.”

While it’s true that that’s the public’s perception, that isn’t the heart of the matter. At the root of the Democrats’ problem is the civil war between the Bernie Sanders socialists and the Bill Clinton capitalists. (Think Bernie on the former, Doug Schoen on the latter.) Democrats are in a can’t win situation because socialists have the energy, aka the enthusiasm gap, on their side, whereas the capitalists have the ability to work with Republicans on things.

Therein lies another problem. It’s impossible to be part of the Resistance while being willing to work with Republicans. I’m betting that it’s impossible for Democrats to retake the House if they’re fueled essentially by blind hatred of President Trump. Further, it’s difficult to be a Democrat when their leaders make mistakes like this:

I’m old enough to remember the fights between the Daily Kos and the DLC. This is a nationally televised fight between the Daily Kos and the DLC:

This fight happened in 2007. It started earlier. As part of his stump speech, Howard Dean used to say “I’m from the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party.” The point to all this is to highlight that this schism has existed within the Democratic Party for years. This isn’t a transient argument. That’s the definition of an existential argument.

Clearly, Trump’s policies are working. Consumer confidence is high. Unemployment is low, especially with African-Americans and Hispanics. The world is still volatile but prospects for stability are increasing. On Monday, the US Embassy in Jerusalem will open. There’s even a legitimate chance for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The point to all this is simple. If Republicans go on offense while highlighting President Trump’s economic and national security accomplishments, Democrats will have a difficult time. After all, you can’t beat something with nothing. At this point, all that Democrats have to offer is fear itself.

This past Saturday, a bunch of liberal organizations sponsored the March for Our Lives in an attempt to start gutting the Second Amendment. That wasn’t the students’ intent. That’s the AstroTurf organizations’ intent. Organizations like “Everytown, Giffords, Move On, and Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month’s March for Our Lives rally and beyond.”

While those organizations rally people to ban scary-looking weapons that won’t make the public safer, President Trump and the Republican Congress are taking concrete steps to make schools safer. One step they’ve taken is they’ve passed Sen. John Cornyn’s Fix NICS legislation “a provision aimed at improving the national background check system in order to prevent felons and domestic abusers from purchasing firearms. Cornyn has been pushing for that measure since two days after the mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, when he went to the Senate floor to proclaim the need for the “Fix NICS Act.” NICS, the acronym for National Instant Criminal Background Check System, is where many believe part of the system failed in the Sutherland Springs incident. The shooter was an Air Force veteran with a record of domestic abuse convictions, meaning he should not have been allowed to purchase firearms.”

This is an important step in keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t be allowed to buy guns. In Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ op-ed, we learn that “We are also taking steps to ensure that the information accessible during a background check is both complete and up to date.” Also, “we have already increased federal gun prosecutions to a 10-year high and violent crime prosecutions to a 25-year high – the highest level since records have been kept. But we are just getting started. With this new policy in place, and with our continued emphasis on federal prosecution of the most dangerous gun offenders, we intend to break these records again.”

These aren’t feel-good measures like the marchers want. These are things that will make a significant difference fairly quickly or that are already making a difference.

These are the adults taking action. They can’t be confused with the student activists who demand that we “do something.” These men shouldn’t be confused with children like David Hogg:

Hogg, who became the de facto spokesman for the youth gun control movement after surviving the Valentine’s Day mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., accused Rubio of prioritizing campaign contributions over the lives of students. “I’m going to start off by putting this price tag right here as a reminder for you guys to know how much Marco Rubio took for every student’s life in Florida,” Hogg said before a crowd of tens of thousands gathered in front of the Capitol building. If you listen real close, you can hear the people in power shaking. They’ve gotten used to being protective of their position, choosing the safety of inaction. Inaction is no longer safe, and to that we say no more,” he said.

If there’s going to be finger-pointing, it should be in Sheriff Scott Israel’s direction. That coward did nothing to protect the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS. Then he started pointing fingers at the NRA to take the spotlight off of his failures.

James Freeman’s article does something that MSNBC and CNN haven’t done. Specifically, Mr. Freeman questioned the integrity of Mr. Schiff’s alleged information. I use the word alleged advisedly. Frequently, Mr. Schiff has hinted that he’s seen information that proves that there’s been collusion between President Trump’s team and Russia. Never has he provided that proof.

Appearing on Meet the Press Daily, Schiff “was asked by Chuck Todd” “whether or not he only has a circumstantial case.” Schiff replied “Actually no, Chuck. I can tell you that the case is more than that and I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”

Freeman later notes that “nearly nine months later, he’s still going on talk shows and making accusations. He’s still declining to back them up. And he’s still finding friendly news organizations to broadcast his claims, even though by this time a fact-free Schiff accusation of collusion with Russians can hardly be considered news.” When Jake Tapper asked for evidence, Schiff dodged until Tapper asked him point blank:

TAPPER: Do you know of any instance where the Russians said, we’re going to do it this way, we’re going to do it through WikiLeaks, we’re going to do it through DCLeaks, this is how we’re going to get this information out there?
SCHIFF: I can’t comment. That’s an issue that we have been investigating. And I don’t want to comment at this point or not what the state of that evidence is.

That’s tough. Schiff’s credibility is sinking fast. We should nickname him ‘The Gossip Guy’ because he’s more full of gossip than actual verifiable information. Honestly, I don’t trust Schiff. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time as far as I’m concerned. This article explains why I don’t trust him.

Jason Lewis isn’t your typical politician. First, he isn’t afraid to highlight other people’s bad behavior. When TakeAction Minnesota, aka TAM, sent protesters to his house, Lewis replied, saying “They don’t want dialogue or to let other constituents speak, they want to turn them into a spectacle. I have responsibility to represent all my constituents. I don’t have to hold a spectacle for my partisan political opponents.”

TakeAction Minnesota wasn’t established to bring civic-minded people together. It was put together by hyperpartisan progressives to shout down conservatives and criticize center-right policies. Listening isn’t TAM’s strong suit. Keeping an open mind isn’t, either. People that insist that organizations like TAM and MoveOn.org are just interested in speaking to their congressman or senators are lying. More often than not, the goal is to produce videos that go viral.

Ask yourself this: would you attend a townhall meeting if you knew partisan activists wanted to use the meetings to create campaign ads? I definitely wouldn’t participate in such a kangaroo court. CBS reported that lines extended out of the meeting hall and into the parking lot:

That doesn’t sound like a grassroots event. That sounds like a partisan ambush. Before you think that’s unprecedented, think again:

Dear Reps. Benson, Ruud, Winkler, Peterson and Simon and Sens. Bonoff, Rest and Pappas,
Thank you for participating in the Plymouth town hall meeting this Thursday. I anticipate there will be additional members participating but have so far not yet been notified. Meeting details are listed below and directions from the Capitol are attached.

Plymouth Town Hall Meeting
Thursday, Feb. 26 7:00 pm
Plymouth City Hall
3400 Plymouth Blvd.

I have also attached the list of people who have signed up to testify as of 9 a.m. this morning. Because we will be meeting for approximately 2 hrs., we will not be able to hear from everyone. (140 have submitted their names.) We will be limiting testimony to 2 minutes and encouraging individuals to submit their comments in writing or online. If there are any individuals listed who you think would provide particularly compelling testimony, please let me know. We will be working to hear from a variety of individuals covering a wide range of topics. Please contact me with any additional questions or suggestions.

Then there’s this:

From: Gene Pelowski [mailto:Rep.Gene.Pelowski@house.mn]
Sent: Tuesday, February 17, 2009 10:13 AM

We would ask you to focus your comments on the impact of the Governor’s budget including what is the harm to your area of government or program. Please be as precise as possible using facts such as number of lay offs, increases in property taxes, cuts in services, increases in tuition, elimination of programs.

In other words, the DFL is skilled at manipulating the media to achieve its political goals. If that means picking only the saddest stories to make it sound like there’s a crisis, that’s what they’ll do. Throughout the years, the DFL have been firm believers in Rahm Emanuel’s saying:

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

TakeAction Minnesota is an extremist organization. I applaud Jason Lewis for not participating in their manipulations.

This article makes me question whether Democrats are dividing themselves into self-destructing camps. According to the article, “The rancor, a spillover from the contentious Democratic presidential primary last year, is aggravating divisions in a state regarded nationally as a lodestar for the liberal cause. Establishment Democrats fear the rhetoric and appetite for new spending could go too far, jeopardizing the party’s across-the-board dominance of state politics.”

That’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. According to the article, “when Rendon announced that he would not allow a single-payer health care bill to advance through California’s lower house, tempers boiled over.
The California Nurses Association and other single-payer advocates descended on the Capitol, waving signs with Rendon’s name printed on a knife buried in the back of the California bear. Sanders himself admonished Rendon, and the nurses union said it planned to air radio ads targeting the Democratic speaker.”

The fight didn’t stop there:

“Corporate Dems: Don’t underestimate grassroots taking action on #SinglePayer,” RoseAnn DeMoro, head of the nurses union, said on Twitter.

This video highlights how heated the fight between Berniecrats and moderates has become:

RoseAnn DeMoro, the president of the California Nurses’ Union, tweeted out this picture of Speaker Anthony Rendon:

Anyone that’s paid attention to the news this past month and doesn’t think that the left is capable of unspeakable violence isn’t thinking things through. There’s a significant division between the establishment and the Resistance.

Paul Song, a California physician and former chairman of the progressive Courage Campaign, said of establishment Democrats, “Whether it be single payer, whether it be [campaign finance] … whether it be now moving forward on environmental issues, I think it’s a much more energized, aggressive base that I don’t think they’ve ever faced before.”

The thing that this article didn’t talk much about, though, was whether Democrats would descend into intraparty violence. I’m not ruling it out. The MoveOn activists hate the DLC (Democratic Leadership Council) activists.

There’s no reason to think that this fight will end anytime soon. Think of the MoveOn activists as representing Obama and the DLC representing the Clintons. There’s clearly no love lost between those dynasties.

Saturday afternoon, Ben Wikler, the Washington director of MoveOn.org, appeared on Fox News to talk about the incoming Trump administration. Saying that his presentation was nothing but the typical litany of progressive chanting points is understatement. After the interview, I visited MoveOn.org’s website. What I found was what I expected to find. One interesting thing that I found was this statement supporting Nancy Pelosi’s re-election as House Minority Leader. In the spirit of bipartisanship, I wholeheartedly agree.

Their statement said, in part, “Progressives are also counting on congressional Democrats to express a populist and inclusive vision for the future that speaks to Americans across lines of race, class, and geography—a vision for how we can build a democracy that isn’t run by corporations, and an economy that works for everybody, not just those at the top, and a country where all Americans’ rights are respected and equal opportunity is protected. We believe that Nancy Pelosi is best positioned to lead House Democrats in this direction, and support her candidacy for Democratic Leader.”

It’s nice to know that MoveOn.org is working hard to solidify the Republicans’ majority in the US House of Representatives. They’re also working hard to strengthen the Republican Party for the next 4 years. That’s what they’re doing if this statement is accurate:

The DNC must clean house and the new chair must stand up to all efforts by Trump and Republicans to move their harmful and bigoted agenda, which lost the national popular vote. At the same time, the DNC must connect with the grassroots of the party base that wants the party to reject corporate influence and advance an inclusive, progressive agenda that will energize voters and grow our base in 2017, 2018, and beyond. To do this, we need to bring back a real 50-state organizing strategy. Rep. Keith Ellison would be an excellent DNC chair.

FOOTNOTE: Keith Ellison just said that he’s open to leaving Congress if he’s elected as the next chairman of the DNC.

Finally, there’s this:

More than 250 million Americans did not choose Trump. In fact, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. The millions of us—MoveOn members and allies—who spent countless hours knocking on doors, making phone calls, and defending democracy can be proud of what we did together.

There’s no doubt that MoveOn.org is trying to restore morale after a demoralizing defeat. That’s fine. In college sports, winning the popular vote but losing the election is sometimes called a moral victory. In pro sports, though, it’s still thought of as a defeat.
This is the video of Wikler’s interview:

That communication style is why Democrats lost the last election.

Saturday afternoon, SCSU Prof. Malcolm Nazareth hosted a MoveOn.org event at the St. Cloud Public Library. I wish I could’ve attended just to hear the hardline progressives’ latest chanting points about the Koch Brothers. Here’s what he said in his online invitation:

Message from your host, Malcolm N.: Things go better with bleep.
Things go worse with Kochs.
How have the Koch Brothers toxified US politics, economics, education, culture?
To what extent have they systematically corrupted democratic processes and moved our nation in the direction of fascism?
How can We the People undermine their anti-people agenda and “move on”?
Come. Find out. Dare to share. Enkindle hope.
Check out the truth of the epigraph of “The Godfather” novel by Mario Puzo (Putnam, 1969): “Behind every great fortune there is a crime” (Balzac).

That’s a pretty good sampling of what passes for thinking on the hard left. What Prof. Nazareth lacks in intellectual heft, he apparently makes up for with vitriol. Here’s what some of his students said about him in their ratings:

Would not recommend this teacher to anyone who has an opinion. He will belittle you if you disagree with his opinion. Also he’s really into showing websites and movies about conspiracy theories. Thinks white people and the government are the devil. It is an easy A class but honestly I would take it with someone else if you have the option.

Horrible professor! Extremely bias. Easy A if your write what he wants to hear. If you disagree with him, he will belittle you.

Did not open the book by Zinn and still got an A. I studied very hard for the rest of the class though. Everything everyone is saying is true. Thinks white people are the devil. His opinions are fact and if you disagree he’ll argue with you for the remainder of the class. Interesting course, bad professor

If you can sit through his lectures, you are truly gifted. He constantly preaches conspiracy theories with the government. If you decide to speak your mind, prepare to fail your papers.

This isn’t surprising. If I didn’t know a healthy number of liberals on the SCSU campus, I’d be tempted to think that this nutjob is representative of their thinking. (Think first impressions.) Fortunately, I know a number of liberal professors on the SCSU campus. They’d cringe if they heard this crap.

It’s important, in my opinion, to differentiate between hardline progressives and liberals. Old-fashioned liberals loved a good debate. Hardline progressives are fascists who’d rather shut down debate than engage in it.

I’d love hearing Prof. Nazareth’s explanation on why, in his opinion, the Koch Brothers are toxifying American politics and hurting the economy. More than that, though, I’m curious what’s fueling his animosity. I’m not holding my breath waiting for that explanation.

Saturday’s event was part of MoveOn.org’s campaign against Republicans. The tide is turning against this organization. There was a time when MoveOn.org was the unquestioned dominant part of the Democratic Party. The more strident they become, though, the less influential they become.

Though high profile Democrats like President Obama and former Speaker Pelosi touted Occupy Wall Street as the left’s response to the TEA Party movement, it’s essentially history. That’s long been my opinion. Now, Dana Milbank is confirming it:

In October, when liberal activists gathered in Washington, they had hopes that the nascent Occupy Wall Street movement would become the left’s answer to the tea party.

But this time around; the annual Take Back the American Dream Conference was moved up to June this election year; the Occupy encampments are gone, and participants in the conference were pondering what went wrong. Or, as activist Van Jones put it to them, what has become of “the voice that is missing.”

Jones, an Obama administration official who resigned under pressure because of his far-left positions, is a fixture at the annual gatherings and a fiery orator. But this version of his yearly pep talk was laced with disappointment. “I’m watching that movement that inspired the world…that stunned the world, in the moment of maximum peril now sit down,” he lamented at the opening session, where half of the 500 seats were filled.

Suffering Americans, he went on, “need a movement that is willing to stand with them, and yet there is this reluctance. We saw in Wisconsin what happens when we put our minimum against our opponents’ maximum…Are we going to let the tea party govern America?”

OWS disappeared because citizen journalists exposed them for the criminals that they are. They also disappeared because Main Street can’t relate to them. There’s no doubt that OWS excited The Left. If President Obama won 100% of the anarchists’ and Marxists’ vote, that might get him to 10% of the vote. That leaves him just 40 points short of winning re-election.

The TEA Party’s ideals are the embodiment of Main Street values and priorities. While there aren’t as many TEA Party rallies, the TEA Party spirit is still vibrant. Most TEA Party activists found limited government candidates to support, then went to work for those types of candidates.

America might not agree with everything that the TEA Party stands for but they aren’t repulsed by TEA Party activists like they are with OWS criminals.

This letter from Artur Davis is another major indictment against President Obama:

While I’ve gone to great lengths to keep this website a forum for ideas, and not a personal forum, I should say something about the various stories regarding my political future in Virginia, the state that has been my primary home since late December 2010. The short of it is this: I don’t know and am nowhere near deciding. If I were to run, it would be as a Republican. And I am in the process of changing my voter registration from Alabama to Virginia, a development which likely does represent a closing of one chapter and perhaps the opening of another.

As to the horse-race question that animated parts of the blogosphere, it is true that people whose judgment I value have asked me to weigh the prospect of running in one of the Northern Virginia congressional districts in 2014 or 2016, or alternatively, for a seat in the Virginia legislature in 2015. If that sounds imprecise, it’s a function of how uncertain political opportunities can be—and if that sounds expedient, never lose sight of the fact that politics is not wishfulness, it’s the execution of a long, draining process to win votes and help and relationships while your adversaries are working just as hard to tear down the ground you build.

I by no means underestimate the difficulty of putting together a campaign again, especially in a community to which I have no long-standing ties. I have a mountain of details to learn about this northern slice of Virginia and its aspirations, and given the many times I have advised would-be candidates to have a platform and a reason for serving, as opposed to a desire to hold an office, that learning curve is one I would take seriously.

And the question of party label in what remains a two team enterprise? That, too, is no light decision on my part: cutting ties with an Alabama Democratic Party that has weakened and lost faith with more and more Alabamians every year is one thing; leaving a national party that has been the home for my political values for two decades is quite another. My personal library is still full of books on John and Robert Kennedy, and I have rarely talked about politics without trying to capture the noble things they stood for. I have also not forgotten that in my early thirties, the Democratic Party managed to engineer the last run of robust growth and expanded social mobility that we have enjoyed; and when the party was doing that work, it felt inclusive, vibrant, and open-minded.

But parties change. As I told a reporter last week, this is not Bill Clinton’s Democratic Party (and he knows that even if he can’t say it). If you have read this blog, and taken the time to look for a theme in the thousands of words (or free opposition research) contained in it, you see the imperfect musings of a voter who describes growth as a deeper problem than exaggerated inequality; who wants to radically reform the way we educate our children; who despises identity politics and the practice of speaking for groups and not one national interest; who knows that our current course on entitlements will eventually break our solvency and cause us to break promises to our most vulnerable—that is, if we don’t start the hard work of fixing it.

On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country. You have also seen me write that faith institutions should not be compelled to violate their teachings because faith is a freedom, too. You’ve read that in my view, the law can’t continue to favor one race over another in offering hard-earned slots in colleges: America has changed, and we are now diverse enough that we don’t need to accommodate a racial spoils system. And you know from these pages that I still think the way we have gone about mending the flaws in our healthcare system is the wrong way—it goes further than we need and costs more than we can bear.

Taken together, these are hardly the enthusiasms of a Democrat circa 2012, and they wouldn’t be defensible in a Democratic primary. But they are the thoughts and values of ten years of learning, and seeing things I once thought were true fall into disarray. So, if I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities.

Full confession: you won’t find in my columns a poll tested candidate who could satisfy a litmus test. Immigration is a classic example: I wince at the Obama Administration’s efforts to tell states they can’t say the word immigration in their state laws, and find it foolish when I hear their lawyers say that a local cop can’t determine the legal status of a suspect validly in their custody. At the same time, I wince when I see Latinos who have a lawful right to be here have to dodge the glare of so-called “self-deportation laws” that look too uncomfortably like profiling. (It’s a good thing Virginia hasn’t gone that path). And while I haven’t written about the subject as much as I should have, I can’t defend every break in our tax code, or every special interest set-aside, as a necessary tool of a free market. And I can’t say every dollar spent on our weak and our marginal is a give-away: a just government is mindful of the places where prosperity never shines (and I give a lot of credit to an undisputed conservative, Mitch Daniels in Indiana, for saying so, and doing it at the nation’s leading conservative political caucus at that.)

A voter and a columnist have all the freedom in the world to say these things; perhaps a candidate does, too. Should I ever cross that bridge again, I will be trusting voters more than ever (despite having seen how wrong they can get it!) to test ability more than rigid ideology, and to accept that experience changes minds (if it is so in our lives, why shouldn’t it be so in our politics?) I might well decide that all of that is asking too much, and that party demands too much for a guy who doesn’t fit a partisan caricature. Or I might someday not so far off say, “Let the people decide.” Stay tuned.

Another Democrat leaves the Obama Democratic Party. I can’t say I’m surprised.

President Obama’s week is off to a terrible start. This week, we learned that the DNC is too broke to pay for a real convention. We learned that President Obama’s favorite banker, Jamie Dimon helped create a $2,000,000,000 loss for his shareholders.

This morning’s news reports highlights another embarrassing story:

Dozens of demonstrators dashed into the Loop building housing President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters this morning, slipping past security guards and running up escalators as they kicked off what they called a “Week Without Capitalism.”

Eight protesters were led out in handcuffs about half an hour later after they refused to clear the lobby. They were cheered by other demonstrators who began dancing and singing folk and gospel songs.

The demonstration, organized by the Catholic Worker movement. began with about 100 demonstrators picketing at Prudential Plaza and passing out rolls to commuters in what they called a symbolic invitation to break bread with world leaders expected here this weekend for the NATO summit.

A week without capitalism was the theme of the protest. How appropriate for the Obama administration. The only ‘capitalism’ they believe in is crony capitalism that subsidizes their political allies’ failures.

Conservatives would likely enjoy finding out that the “Catholic Worker Movement” is strikingly similar to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Here’s how similar they are:

Soon after legendary folk singer Loudon Wainwright III finished performing for cheering protesters in Zuccotti Park yesterday afternoon, telling them that the Occupy Wall Street encampment reminded him of the 1968 “Summer of Love,” a Catholic Worker band called the Filthy Rotten System showed up.

Bud Courtney, who plays banjo in the group, said its decidedly unholy name came from the late Dorothy Day, who started the Christian-anarchist Catholic Worker Movement 78 years ago with Peter Maurin during the Great Depression. She is now being considered for sainthood by the Catholic Church.

“Dorothy observed that all of our problems come from our acceptance of the filthy rotten system,” said Mr. Courtney, 61, a former actor who served on a Christian Peacemaker Team in Iraq last year and now lives at one of two Catholic Worker hospitality houses in the East Village. With the help of several bandmates as well as protesters who sang along, he belted out Woody Guthrie’s classic, “My Land is Your Land.”

To summarize things to this point, President Obama praised the OWS movement earlier this year. Now an offshoot of the movement is taking Newt Gingrich’s advice, though they aren’t marching on DC. Instead, they’re marching on Obama’s campaign HQ in Chicago.

The irony is just sweet.

It wasn’t that long ago that Ms. Pelosi was praising the OWS protesters. For that matter, President Obama praised the OWS protesters, too. Now that the protesters President Obama praised have invaded his campaign HQ, what are the odds President Obama will stop praising them?

Ironies this rich should be savored.
