It isn’t shocking that ‘San Fran Nan’, aka Nancy Pelosi, wants to return to the bad old days of the Obama economic policies. That’s to be expected. It isn’t that surprising that she isn’t worried about innocent bystanders getting hurt during the campaign. What’s disgusting is how cavalierly she talks about “collateral damage” in this video:

‘San Fran Nan’ apparently couldn’t care less about people getting hurt by Soros-financed leftist goons. This isn’t about policies for her. It’s about ideology with her. If some Republican candidates have to suffer concussions for her to regain her speakership, that’s fine with her.

She’s power-crazed. That description fits most Democrat activists. BTW, don’t buy the Democrats’ spinmeisters spin on this. We keep hearing about this or that moderate. That’s usually after a Republican highlights how another Republican has gotten attacked. We’re told that there are lots of moderates in the Democratic Party. To that, I emphatically say BS.

If there were lots of principled moderates in the Democratic Party, they would’ve forged a compromise on DACA and funding the wall. They don’t exist. I’ve been saying since 2010 that there aren’t any principled moderate Democrats left. I stand by that statement.

The Democratic Party of Skip Jackson, JFK and Daniel Patrick Moynihan doesn’t exist anymore. The people that call themselves Democrats today have earned a new title — the Party of Hate.

It’s impossible for me to forget how hate-filled Sen. Hirono was during the Kavanaugh hearings. It’s impossible to forget how Sen. Hirono, (D-HI), said that then-Judge Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent. Compared with what’s happened this week, Sen. Hirono’s actions are mild.

This week, 2 Minnesota Republicans were attacked. As frightening as those things are, they’re probably mild compared to what happened when Clintonista David Brock unleashed Wilfred Michael Stark, who “was arrested by the Las Vegas City Marshals on Tuesday evening and remains in custody in the Las Vegas city jail” after attacking Kristin Davison.

Though this isn’t a manifestation of violence, this interview shows how warped and disgusting the former Democratic Party has fallen:

How uncontroversial is it to say that you “stand for the flag and kneel at the Cross”? That’s utterly uncontroversial yet Mr. Salvas was fired as the leader of the Allegheny County Democratic Party. Salvas confirmed that he was called a racist for that statement.

These aren’t normal people. The anarchists that attacked Sarah Anderson and the Soros-paid attack dog that attacked Kristin Davison aren’t exceptions anymore. They’re the rule for the new ‘Party of Hate’. Does anyone seriously think that a country run by these disgusting people will produce prosperity and peace? I can’t picture that.

Finally, notice that all of the attackers are Democrats. This isn’t a situation where both parties are guilty. The former Democratic Party is the guilty party. Period.

Keith Ellison’s multiple character flaws are proof that he isn’t fit to be Minnesota’s top law enforcement officer. This weekend, William Davis, his top attack dog, gave us another reason to reject Ellison and end Ellison’s political career.

This weekend, Davis left a nasty reply to this Facebook post:

What a disgusting directive. What’s amazing is that Davis still has a job as I write this article. If a Republican had written this, the MSM would’ve been all over this like white on rice.

Because it was written by a Democrat mobster, the only sound we’ll hear is that of crickets. Like one of my frequent commenters often reminds us, if the Democrats didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards. Well put.

The difference between Ellison and Doug Wardlow is starting to show itself. In the next post, I’ll explain why Doug Wardlow needs to be our next AG.

Frequent readers of LFR have heard me use the quote about Yasser Arafat where others said he “never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” Further, I’ve said that the quote fits the Democrats perfectly.

Apparently, Bret Stephens thinks the same thing about Democrats. That’s the only conclusion you can reach when you read his article say “Michael Kelly, the legendary journalist who died covering the invasion of Iraq in 2003, once wrote that the ‘animating impulse’ of modern liberalism was to ‘marginalize itself and then enjoy its own company. And to make itself as unattractive to as many as possible. If it were a person,’ he added, ‘it would pierce its tongue.'”

There’s no disputing the fact that Democrats have recruited some good fits for the districts they’re running in. Similarly, there’s no disputing that the Democrats are having a gigantic fight within itself to determine who will control the Party. Right now, the angry mob wing of the Party appears to be winning.

While the Democrats might’ve recruited some moderates, there’s no disputing that House Democrats’ leadership is still far from moderate. Further, while Democrats can point to a bunch of their candidates saying that they won’t vote for Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker, few people believe that.

It pierced its tongue last week when New York’s Representative Jerrold Nadler pledged to use a Democratic House majority to open an investigation into Kavanaugh’s alleged perjury and the “whitewash” investigation by the F.B.I. A party that can’t change its mind and won’t change the subject meets the classic definition of a fanatic.

Democrats, much like Chairman Arafat, can’t avoid missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

It’s understatement to say that Keith Ellison has chutzpah to spare. This week, Ellison criticized Doug Wardlow for being a mouthpiece for special interest groups while speaking at the Minnesota AFL-CIO headquarters.

While at the AFL-CIO headquarters, Ellison said “The special interests already have high-powered lawyers on their side. They don’t need another one in the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office.”

To his credit, Wardlow hit back hard, saying “Keith Ellison, he wants to talk about anything other than the domestic abuse allegations against him.” With the judge just unsealing Ellison’s divorce records this past Thursday, rest assured that this wasn’t Ellison’s best week in politics ever.

Then again, Ellison hasn’t had many good weeks lately. He certainly didn’t have a great week when Karen Monahan accused him of sexual assault. Ellison definitely didn’t have a great week when various bloggers highlighted the fact that Ellison has frequently supported cop-killers.

Ellison not only supports special interest organizations. He couldn’t thrive without their support.

In the past, Ellison was a politician in the minority, a bomb-thrower. This time, he’s running to become Minnesota’s chief law enforcement officer. John Hinderaker summed things up beautifully in this post, titled “Who wants a pro-crime attorney general”?

If you want a pro-law enforcement attorney general in Minnesota, the only choice is Doug Wardlow:

Keith Ellison is running to be Minnesota’s Attorney General. Today, Minnesotans are learning that Ellison hates paying his federal and state income taxes. This afternoon, I received an email from the Wardlow campaign highlighting this article, which was written by Bill Williamson.

According to the article, “Ellison’s critics in the DNC and some supporters of Labor secretary Tom Perez, the other top candidate, are pointing to the Minnesota Democrat’s past tax troubles, campaign finance violations and minor legal issues that once led to his driver’s license being suspended as evidence that he’s ill-equipped to lead the DNC.”

It’s apparent that Ellison cares as much about tax laws as arsonists care about fire codes. How can serious people consider electing a person who doesn’t care about the law to be Minnesota’s top law enforcement officer?

In light of Ellison’s frequent law-breaking and his support of cop-killers like Assata Shakur, shouldn’t Minnesotans think that Ellison is capable of lying about assaulting Karen Monahan?

There’s no disputing the fact that Keith Ellison is a scofflaw. That’s why he shouldn’t become Minnesota’s Attorney General.

It’s becoming obvious that the so-called enthusiasm gap between the GOP and Democrats is mislabeled. The truth is that the Democrats’ “enthusiasm” is actually outrage. Just watch a short clip of Hillary talking about civility. What part of that inspires enthusiasm?

Though this clip doesn’t show it, The Politics Show, hosted by Esme Murphy and Pat Kessler, talked about President Trump’s rally in Rochester:

They said that they were surprised at how many people were treating the Trump rally like a celebration. Kessler then mentioned that he’d been to many presidential rallies but that he’d never seen one this deep into an administration had this much enthusiasm.

The truth is that the Republicans’ resurgence is fueled by enthusiasm and positivity. Positivity has the potential of persuading people to join the cause. That gives the GOP the advantage of building on the ‘Kavanaugh Effect’.

Meanwhile, the Democrats’ ‘enthusiasm’ is built upon outrage. When Eric Holder says “When they go low, we kick them”, he isn’t giving people motivation to join the Democrats’ cause. When Kirsten Sinema, the Democrats’ Senate candidate in Arizona, belittles Arizonans, she isn’t motivating Republicans to vote for her.

If I had to bet on the House majority, I’d bet on the GOP holding that majority. The myth that suburban white women were fleeing the GOP is overblown. Further, people are underestimating the white male turnout in blue collar districts. If Democrats don’t make a significant dent in those districts, they’ll be stuck in the minority again.

After reading this op-ed, honest people would be skeptical of anything Democrats say.

In this op-ed, Cheri Bustos, Hakeem Jeffries and David Cicilline write “For the past two years, Republicans have had total control over the House, the Senate and the White House. What do they have to show for their leadership? A tax scam that pads the pockets of millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the middle class. Skyrocketing health care costs and prescription drug prices that are forcing millions of Americans deep into debt. A culture of corruption in Washington that’s so far-reaching it’s putting our entire democracy at risk. A nation that is growing more divided and more cynical – and a politics more chaotic and exhausting – with each passing day.”

While Americans feel better with extra money in their wallets, Democrats insist that the Trump/GOP tax cuts are a scam. How is that different than what Nancy Pelosi said?

How are the tax cuts coming “at the expense of the middle class”? Is their explanation that this money isn’t being “invested” in the future? If that’s the Democrats’ explanation, then they’re the ones scamming people.

As for “skyrocketing health care costs and prescription drug prices”, Minnesota’s premiums are coming down. Further, thanks to President Trump, consumers have more choices in terms of types of policies they can buy. They don’t have to buy the policies that the government orders them to buy. Consumers actually get to make real choices.

Finally, Democrats are being little drama queens when they insist that Trump is destroying our democracy. Here’s a question that voters should ask themselves: What can the Democrats do that Republicans aren’t already doing well? Under unified GOP government, incomes are rising, consumer confidence and small business confidence is shooting through the roof, durable good orders are skyrocketing. Will Democrats improve on any of those things?

I’m betting that they won’t. In fact, I’m betting that they’ll fail. Why risk the success we’re already experiencing?

Bryan Dean Wright’s op-ed highlights the pickle Democrats find themselves in after their failed attempt to stop Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Particularly scathing is when Wright says “Progressives have no one to blame but themselves, of course. For the past two months, the Democratic machinery has launched blistering attacks on Kavanaugh that have utterly backfired. The media led the way with astonishing speed and inaccuracy, with USA Today going so far as to suggest Kavanaugh was a pedophile. Meanwhile, activist groups organized pop-up protests in elevators and hallways, with cult-like followers chanting back to their leaders how they’d target their next victim. And, of course, hundreds of Democratic officials in the Senate and House pumped out talking points that defied both logic and decency.”

This wasn’t just a defeat for Democrats. It was a defeat of epic proportions. This is what they were reduced to:

Stuff like teenage farting, ice cubes, and devilish drinking games.

When Sen. Whitehouse questioned then-Judge Kavanaugh about these things, he looked downright foolish:

That’s the quality of the questioning from the Democrats? No wonder people think they’re idiots. It isn’t surprising that, after that stupidity, the Democrats’ chances are collapsing.

This is what ultimately sunk the Democrats:

When America finally heard testimony regarding Professor Ford’s serious allegations, the outcome was clear. Not one of the people she identified as attendees of the infamous 1982 party could corroborate that a sexual assault occurred or a party ever happened.

Sen. Hirono might think that men are presumed guilty until proven innocent but the rest of America disagrees. Fighting that fight is an uphill fight all the way.

This NYTimes article highlights one of the major differences between a Republican majority in the upcoming House or a Democrat majority.

The article opens by saying “House Democrats will open an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh if they win control of the House in November, Representative Jerrold Nadler, the New York Democrat in line to be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said on Friday. Speaking on the eve of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote this weekend, Mr. Nadler said that there was evidence that Senate Republicans and the F.B.I. had overseen a ‘whitewash’ investigation of the allegations and that the legitimacy of the Supreme Court was at stake. He sidestepped the issue of impeachment. ‘It is not something we are eager to do,’ Mr. Nadler said in an interview. ‘But the Senate having failed to do its proper constitutionally mandated job of advise and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions.'”

Do we want a congress that’s focused on investigations all the time or on making people’s lives better by getting government out of the way? Put another way, do we want a revenge congress or a prosperity congress? Nadler has cast his vote. He’d prefer a revenge congress. No thanks.

This shows what the Democrats’ priorities are. Their priority isn’t the American people. Their priority is destroying President Trump. That’s because they hate the fact that President Trump is demolishing President Obama’s legacy. The American people don’t mind because there’s more money in their wallets than during the Obama administration.
