Yesterday, it was pretty much ‘Open Warfare Day’ within the Democratic Party. It turns out that Justice Democrats are interested in handing the House majority to Republicans on a silver platter. During the open warfare on Twitter, shots were fired in both directions pretty much all day long.

Later in the day, things started getting nasty. AOC’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, fired a shot, saying “I think the point still stands. I don’t think that people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system.” That tweet opened the floodgates. Shortly thereafter, someone with personal access to the official House Democrat Twitter account tweeted “Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color? Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice. She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue.” Later in the day, the gloves came off, with Chakrabarti tweeting this:


Ouch. “I’d challenge you to find voters that can name a single thing House Democrats have done for their kitchen table this year.” Chakrabarti just handed the NRCC an industrial-strength jackhammer to beat Democrats over the head with from now through Election Day, 2020. When Democrats admit that Democrats haven’t done anything to help voters with kitchen-table issues, that isn’t the way to preserve the Democrats’ majority. That’s a lesson on how to give Republicans their majority back on a silver platter.

If Democrats insist on fighting amongst themselves, Republicans should shut up and get out of the way. The first rule of your opponent demolishing themselves is to step out of the way and let them.

The serious point in all this that isn’t getting much attention is this: Democrats really haven’t gotten anything done since regaining the House majority. They’ve passed legislation but that legislation doesn’t fix any problems. It’s mostly been highly ideological stuff that doesn’t have a chance of getting a hearing in the Senate. House Democrats will complain about this during the campaign but I don’t see that having much of an impact.

Democrats have been badly wrong on 3 major immigration-related issues. Democrats are wrong about decriminalizing illegal border crossings. Democrats are certainly wrong with giving free health care to illegal aliens. Finally, Democrats are wrong in vilifying border patrol agents as the heartless people that AOC has characterized them as.

Sunday night on The Next Revolution, host Steve Hilton focused virtually the entire show on immigration-related issues:

It isn’t hyperbole to say that this was a spirited debate for virtually the entire hour. Rep. Harley Rouda, (D-Calif.), got asked some rather pointed questions about immigration. At one point, a questioned noted that Rep. Rouda mentioned some legislation from 2013. The questioner asked him if he thought that the bill would be a good bill. Rouda said it would be. The questioner then immediately asked him if he’d talk to Speaker Pelosi to get the bill a hearing.

Rouda dodged, saying that he’s just one vote so he couldn’t get the bill passed by himself. With all due respect, that isn’t what the questioner asked. The questioner asked if he’d introduce the bill for consideration. It’s my contention that Rouda knows that the fight between Pelosi and AOC is just window-dressing. Democrats know that the Resist Movement controls the Democrats’ agenda in the House.

These things will get exposed during the campaign. That’s when ths food fight will intensify.

Donald Trump Jr.’s op-ed insists that President Trump, his father, will be the biggest beneficiary of the Democrats’ escalating civil war. The Democrats’ escalating civil war is also known as the Democrats’ circular firing squad.

While the media pontificates over the moderates vs. the Squad, Americans have noticed that the House Democrats’ list of accomplishments isn’t lengthy or impressive. As Donald Jr. highlights, the Squad, aka AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, isn’t that interested in legislative accomplishments. At this point, they’re mostly interested in getting lots of air time on CNN and MSNBC or increasing their followers on social media.

That’s a stupid decision. People want Congress to do things that improve their lives. In his op-ed, Trump Jr. made an astute observation when he said “Democrats are more beholden to their activist class than to the majority of the American people. Whether voters like it or not, extremists such as Ocasio-Cortez, not Pelosi, are in charge of setting the party agenda.”

The pundits won’t admit this but the AstroTurf activists have run the Democrats’ agenda since, at minimum, 2011. Currently, the Democrats’ agenda is mostly driven by hate. It isn’t a secret that the Resist Movement is calling the shots. Their hatred of President Trump has driven them crazy. That’s what’s known as Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Although Democratic leaders may take issue with the left wing of the party, the mainstream media and the 2020 presidential candidates have fully embraced the liberal agenda. In the most recent primary debate, all the Democratic candidates on stage supported providing ‘free’ health care for undocumented immigrants. Several candidates also support decriminalizing illegally crossing the border. Reparations for slavery and late term abortion are now considered the litmus test thresholds by the Democratic base as well. When far left Democrats are not calling their centrist members racist, they show off their ability to pander in Spanish.

Meanwhile, President Trump has a lengthy list of accomplishments to run. That’s in addition to his America First agenda items still to accomplish. When people watch the Squad say no to virtually everything on President Trump’s America First agenda, especially on immigration, they’ll notice that Democrats haven’t shown an interest in fixing problems.

Something that Donald Trump Jr. didn’t mention that’s worth mentioning is how little the Democrats on the Problem Solvers Caucus have done. Supposedly moderate, these Democrats have been virtually worthless. When a person hasn’t been productive, it’s often said that ‘I could count on one hand his accomplishments.’ In the Problem Solvers Caucus case, their accomplishments could be counted without hands. They don’t have any accomplishments. Like the other Democrat, they’re owned by the Resist Movement. They talk a moderate game but they don’t do a thing. This video provides proof of that accusation:

I don’t doubt that they’ve written health care legislation. Has it gotten a committee hearing? The answer is ‘it hasn’t’. Democrats will lose the House because the American people have seen that Democrats are all-investigations-all-the-time. Why would independents vote for people whose only goal is to harass the most productive president in our lifetime? He’s gotten a tremendous amount of things done despite the Democrats’ obstructionism.
