Biden Says “Jim Crow Sneaking Back In” Because Trump and Republicans Want to Tighten Voting Laws

May 5, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is “sneaking back in” as he emphasized voting rights at his first presidential campaign stop in South Carolina, where black voters play a key role in the South’s first presidential primary.

In criticizing Republican efforts to adopt more stringent voting rules, including identification requirements and curtailing early voting hours, Biden recalled the racial segregation laws of the past.

“You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” he said, referring to the era before the civil rights movement. “You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote? They lose.”

Biden centered much of his trip around the need to restore decency to the White House. “Your state motto is, ‘While I breathe, I hope,'” he said at the rally after continuing his full-throated denunciation of President Donald Trump. “It’s not a joke. We’re breathing, but God, we have got to have hope.”

He kept up that theme at a private evening fundraiser, telling several dozen donors that he expects a nasty race from Trump.

“This guy is going to go after me and family,” Biden said, recalling his grandchildren telling him before his announcement that they expect Trump and others to bring up family details including his son Hunter Biden’s divorce.

Biden said there “are so many nicknames I want to give this guy,” and he drew laughter when he joked that he’d “start with clown.” But he added that he doesn’t want to respond in kind.

“The only place he has any confidence is in the mud,” Biden said, because the president “doesn’t understand how to respond to issues.”

Biden said he will answer Trump “directly” in the future without name-calling. He recalled saying in 2016 that in high school he’d have “taken him behind the barn and beat the hell out of” Trump. “Guess what? I probably shouldn’t have done that,” Biden said. “The presidency is an office that requires dignity and reestablishing respect and standing.”

Biden will continue his trip Sunday by worshipping at a black church in Columbia.

Okay, let me get this straight.

The guy who once described Barack Hussein Obama as “clean and articulate” is calling President Donald J. Trump and the rest of Republicans RAAACIIIST for wanting to pass laws requiring an ID to vote and other measures designed to ensure honest, fair elections in the future?

Look at the political shenanigans which transpired during the 2018 Midterm Elections in Arizona, Georgia, and Florida, and you will understand why “Sleepy Joe” and his fellow Democrats have fought against Voter I.D. Cards so ferociously.

A Voter I.D. would spoil the 2020 Presidential Election Plans of the Democratic Party Leadership.

Remember, their Chairman is a Hispanic Political Activist.

In my state, even if you cannot drive, you can still get a state identification.

There is nothing to it and it comes in useful for all sorts of things where you need an I.D., even purchasing a cellphone and service plan.

Trump is absolutely right.

I.D.’s are a part of the overwhelming majority of Americans’ everyday lives.

The only reason to intentionally not carry one would be if you do not want to be identified because you’re breaking the law in some form or fashion…such as being in this Sovereign Nation illegally.

The right to vote in American Elections should remain as it always has been: a right enjoyed by American Citizens Only.

Allowing illegals to vote is rewarding them for not having enough respect for America to enter our country in a legal manner.

It is the wrong thing to do….just like “finding votes” after the election is.

Oh, and another thing: It was not a bunch of Republicans who attempted to beat up Black Conservative Candace Owens, the Founder of the #Blexit Movement, the other day.

It was a bunch of black-hooded punks from Antifa, the Far Left Fascists.

Since its inception, the #Blexit Movement has encouraged a lot of black Americans to #breakaway from the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, it has opened a lot of eyes to the fact that the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump several months ago and, according to them, they love the guy.

And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.

They felt empowered.

Trump is winning over a voting bloc that the Democrats have always counted on to vote for their candidate in the Presidential Election.

And, gentle readers, that is why Sleepy Joe brought up Tom Crow and is going on a “Goodwill Tour” through black communities, including making a campaign speech today in a black church.

I guess the “separation of church and state” which the Dems always whine about doesn’t apply to them.

One final thought: Do you know how you can tell that Sleepy Joe and the Democrats have already reached the stage of desperation in the 2020 Presidential Campaign?

They are already playing the Race Card.

Biden Speaks to a Couple of Hundred at “Teamsters Temple” in PA…Trump Spoke to Thousands in Green Bay, WI…Do the Math

April 30, 2019

biden-polls-600-dt

Depending on whom you believe, Former President Barack Hussein Obama either refused to endorse his Former Vice-President, Joe Biden, or “Sleepy Joe” asked him not to.

“At this point, what difference does it make?”

Joe Biden make be the greatest thing since sliced bread up in the Northeast, but down here in Dixie and throughout the rest of the Heartland, he’s known as the Groping Gaffe Machine.

During his speech in Pittsburgh yesterday, Sleepy Joe said that “the Working Class is the Backbone of America”.

He’s right.

The problem with good ol’ Joe’s statement is the fact that his party divorced themselves from America’s Working Class decades ago.

Now, the Modern Far Left Democrats are the party of Socialism and Special Interest Groups who, like Joe’s Former Boss, want to “share the wealth”.

…as long as it isn’t theirs.

Sleepy Joe himself even admitted in an “exit interview” with the Los Angeles Times in December 2016 that “middle class people…making $100,000 a year…used to be our constituency”.

Either he cannot face how far to the left of the Political Spectrum his chosen political party moved during his time as Vice-President in the Obama Administration or he is simply a hypocrite attempting to pander to Middle Class Americans in order to be chosen as the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential Candidate.

However, there’s a huge problem with your strategy, Sleepy Joe.

As you told the LA Times…average Americans in the Middle Class USED to be your constituency.

Also, I’m hoping for Biden’s sake that he has enough sense not to go after President Trump on the grounds of not having “basic fundamental decency”, as he did in a speech last October.

There are pictures all over Social Media from Biden’s job as Obama’s “comic relief” identifying him as a “serial groper”.

During Sleepy Joe’s tenure as Vice President, his boss defended rioters who tore up their own cities.

Heck, Obama even defended a thug who tried to kill a policeman in his own car.

And, don’t attempt to attack the Republicans over spending.

Puhleeze.

Depending on who you ask, Obama added anywhere from $983 billion to $9 trillion to the national debt.

To paraphrase Joe…

That’s a big f’n deal.

Joe always was classy. But, I digress.

Joe, if you think that we are going to willingly go back under the thumb of the special interest groups, Socialism-loving Democratic Party, your hair plugs have seeped Vitalis directly into your medulla oblongata.

Yesterday, you spoke to a couple of hundred people in the Teamsters Local No. 249 Meeting Hall or “Temple” in Lawrenceville, PA.

Last Saturday, President Trump was speaking to thousands at a MAGA Rally in Green Bay, WI.

Do the math, Joe.

Go home and sit down…before you get embarrassed.

“The Party of Diversity” Has Two Old White Men Leading All of their Primary Candidates…Irony is Embarrassed

April 29, 2019

920x920 (4)

Back in February of 2007, Vermont Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

And now, “Sleepy Joe” is running for President.

Yahoo.com reports that

Democrats seeking to reclaim the White House are calling for generational change. It may be time for a woman, they say, or a minority figure.

But for all the talk of breaking new presidential ground, the opposition party’s top candidates to become the new boss look about the same as the current boss: white, male and pretty old.

President Donald Trump is a 72-year-old billionaire, and for many he epitomizes the white male privilege that Democrats often decry.

But the top two candidates leading the race to replace him are pale, male and stale too.

Former vice president Joe Biden, who jumped into the race Thursday, is 76 and has spent the bulk of his life in national politics, while Senator Bernie Sanders, 77, has been in Congress since 1991.

The two men’s dominance in the 2020 Democratic field is at odds with last year’s midterms, when record numbers of women and minorities were elected to the most diverse US Congress ever.

The presidential race itself is historically diverse: six female candidates, three African Americans, a Hispanic former cabinet member, an Asian-American, a Hindu congresswoman, and a gay military-veteran mayor. Nine contenders are under 50.

The 2020 campaign “calls for a new generation of leadership,” candidate Pete Buttigieg, the Indiana mayor who at 37 is less than half Biden’s age, said recently.

And yet it is the two septuagenarians who currently dominate the nominations landscape, with Biden at 29 percent and Sanders at 23 percent in the latest RealClearPolitics polling average. No one else is in double digits.

The White House has relished the irony.

“Old, white, male career politicians like Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden is not exactly what the Democratic Party had in mind for 2020 when they’re running all these different folks who are talking about identity politics and what makes them different,” counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told Fox on Thursday.

The Democratic candidates with the more traditional profiles, Biden and Sanders — each of whom has run for president before — have the strongest name recognition.

That has “significant influence on polling at this point,” Kelly Dittmar, an expert at the Center for American Women and Politics, told AFP.

Unlike recent congressional elections, “presidential politics has been the most dominated by men, and masculinity, for all of our history.” Dittmar said that is true not just in who inhabits the office, but in the norms of behavior and expectations voters place in presidential leaders.

A woman, of course, has made the case that it’s possible to shatter that presidential shield of masculinity, as Hillary Clinton did when she won more popular votes than Trump in 2016.

– White man’s privilege –

There are signs that a post-Clinton mindset has yet to evolve.

The hype that accompanied the entry into the race by Texan Beto O’Rourke (6.3 percent in polling), a white forty-something ex-congressman with a thin resume, contrasted sharply with the muted coverage of the rollout by progressive Senator Elizabeth Warren (6.5 percent).

She was the first heavyweight to enter the race and is the candidate with the most concrete policy platform, but she has been spinning her wheels in the polls.

O’Rourke, who literally wandered in the wilderness before launching his campaign, appeared to acknowledge the hand he has been dealt.

“As a white man who has had privileges that others could not depend on, or take for granted, I’ve clearly had advantages over the course of my life,” he told NBC News in Iowa.

Dittmar said she is not confident that Sanders and Biden, unlike O’Rourke, “have gotten to that point in which they realize… the limitations they have as older white men in being able to understand the challenges of women and communities of color.”

Those limits came into sharp relief this past week. Biden faced awkward questions about refusing to directly apologize to women who said they were made uncomfortable by his touching and the affectionate gestures he lavished on them.

Sanders was booed by black women at a conference when he conveyed a 56-year-old anecdote about marching with civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. when asked how he would combat racism and advocate for people of color.

Such gestures by the frontrunners are “not enough,” Dittmar said.

Both Sanders and Biden have built campaign teams that reflect America’s diversity.

But they will need to speak “in a more detailed way about how you’re going to best empathize with the experiences of women and communities of color in a way that goes beyond a tag line, or one thing you did” in the past, Dittmar added.

Oh, the irony of it all.

Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into the political party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males” are now faced with the situation of having two “straight white males” as the frontrunners for nomination as their Presidential Candidate in 2020.

For years, the Democrats have preached to us “Deplorables” here in the Heartland of America as to how they are the champions of tolerance and diversity.

And yet, a cursory tour of Social Media, such as Twitter and Facebook prove them to be an intolerant bunch of irreverent hypocritical jackasses.

And about that “diversity” thingy…

Just recently Black Conservative Activist Candace Owens was attacked by a bunch of Antifa fascists, simply because she IS a Black Conservative.

After the 2016 Presidential Election the current Democrat frontrunner, “Sleepy Joe” Biden recalled watching a Trump rally in Pennsylvania near where he grew up. “They’re all the people I grew up with,” he said. “They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”

He was speaking about the fact that the Democrats had become a bunch of hypocritical elitists, claiming to representing “average working men and women” but actually wanting nothing to do with us, embracing special interest groups, instead.

The Democrats have learned nothing from the night of November 8, 2016. They are still the same elitist hypocrites whom Biden called out after they lost the presidency.

And, the excuse that Biden and Bernie practice “diversity” within their campaign staffs does not absolve their hypocrisy.

President Trump not only believes in “diversity” his Administration, he believes in it in America’s Workforce, too.

The Unemployment Numbers for Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, and American Women have all dropped to historic lows.

Something that the Democrats, even President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) were not able to accomplish.

Some people, especially hypocritical elitists like those in the Democratic Party, never learn.

Trump Predicts Biden and Sanders Will Be Final Two in Democratic Primary Battle…Will This Be 1984 All Over Again?

April 17, 2019

biden-sanders-comp-ap-insley-wade

It is hard to believe that in a year and a half America will have another Presidential Election.

The Citizen Statesman who presently occupies the Oval Office has been thinking about whom his opponent in the 2020 Presidential Election night be.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump offered his thoughts Tuesday night on which two Democratic contenders he thinks will be left standing in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Out of the crowded pool of contenders, Trump predicted on Twitter that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders will be the final two in the battle to be the party’s nominee.

“I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)!” he wrote. “I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!”

While Sanders, I-Vt., confirmed in February that he would be running again for president, Biden has yet to formally enter the race.

The president’s prediction came after he targeted Sanders in a separate tweet, speaking about the lawmaker’s finances.

“Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income,” Trump wrote. “He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else – and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!”

Shortly ahead of a Fox News town hall Monday night, Sanders’ presidential campaign released his 2018 returns. According to the figures, Sanders and his wife Jane paid a 26 percent effective tax rate on $561,293 in income, and made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017. Nearly $400,000 of his income last year came from book sales.

Sanders later fired back at the president for his remarks, tweeting that Trump seemed “scared of our campaign.”

“He should be,” he continued.

No…he shouldn’t.

Let’s face it. The Democrats have nobody.

Bernie’s an old Communist and Biden’s an old lech who is a couple of fires short of a happy meal.

If they are the Democrat Front Runners, then the 2020 Presidential Election is over before it begins, especially if the Thursday reveal of the redacted Mueller Report turns out to be as big a nothingburger as is predicted.

This whole scenario is reminiscent of the Presidential Election held on November 6, 1984, in which Republican President Ronald Reagan was elected to a second term, defeating Democrat Walter Mondale, a former U.S. vice president. The Gipper won 49 states en route to amassing 525 electoral votes to Mondale’s 13, one of the biggest landslides in U.S. election history.

Reagan accomplished this historic feat despite the fact that the 1984 Presidential Election was the first time a major party had a woman on its ticket – Geraldine Ferraro, Mondale’s running mate.

Even if Crazy Bernie and Sleepy Joe were to run together, all the Democrats would have would be a pair of Veteran Professional Politicians from the Northeast.

Mondale was a Former Vice-President and U.S. Senator from Minnesota.

Are you beginning to see why this possible scenario reminds me of 1984, gentle readers?

You have a sitting President who communicates directly to the American people, bypassing the Main Stream Media, who has accomplished a great deal so far in his presidency while attempting to keep his Campaign Promises.

And, he has done all of this while working against a hostile MSM.

Sound familiar? It does if you were alive to experience it in the 1980s, like I was.

On the Democratic side, you have one candidate who is a walking gaffe machine, while the other one wants the Americans who do all of the hiring (“the wealthy”) to pay a 52% tax rate in order to fund his plan to turn America into Socialist Paradise.

Those guys will be about as popular in America’s Heartland as the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, was in 2016.

If these guys are the best that the Democrats can offer, Trump should easily be re-elected, just as President Reagan was.

Of course, the Professional Political Pundits and the Democrat-weighted polls will disagree with me if either of these guys are nominated.

However, I will take my chances.

After all, if they were as smart as they claim to be, Hillary Clinton would be President.

Until He Comes,

Bill Maher Insults Red State Voters, Claims Jealous of Liberal Elite Lifestyle…This Red State Voter Responds

February 25, 2019

billmaher-1

I wish that I could buy this popinjay for what he is worth and sell him for what he thinks he is worth.

DailyCaller.com reports that

Comedian Bill Maher mocked red state voters on his show Friday night, insisting that they are merely jealous of the liberal elite lifestyle.

During a segment about Amazon’s new headquarters on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the HBO host said he knows red state voters want a more cosmopolitan lifestyle because their local governments submitted proposals to bring Amazon to their cities.

“There are no red carpets in Wyoming and no one ever asks you, ‘who are you wearing?’ because the answer is always Target,” Maher said as the audience laughed. “We have orchestras, theater districts, world class shopping, we have Chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee.”

The host continued, “Our roofs have solar panels, theirs have last year’s Christmas lights … the flyover states have become passed-over states, that’s why red state voters are so pissed off.”

“They don’t hate us. They want to be us. They want to go to the party. It’s like we’re the British royal family and they’re Meghan Markle’s dad,” Maher asserted.

Maher concluded the brutal mocking by suggesting Amazon relocate to a red state in order to bring those voters more prosperity. 

“If you leave the red states behind, they’re going to keep getting angrier, crazier,” Maher declared.

Hardly, Skippy.

As we say down here in America’s Heartland,

Boy…your cornbread ain’t done in the middle.

Why don’t Democrat Liberals like Bill Maher understand why they lost the Presidency on the night of November 8, 2016?

Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time lately on Twitter, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals like the shrill and strident Maher who echo the sentiments of the rest of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency who believe that anybody who lives between the coasts and who works hard for a living while believing in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

According to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

During the nightmare known as the Obama Presidency, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and to be a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

What those who consider themselves to be the smartest people in the room, like Ann Coulter’s ex, Bill Maher, do not understand is that the exceptionalism of America lies not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family, common among average Americans living in America’s Heartland whom Maher seeks to degrade and insult.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it was this same “Average Joe” whom, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth on that historic day in November of 2016 and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

Average Americans are no more “jealous ” of Liberals living on the coasts than they are of dogs being able to lick their own behinds.

And that, boys and girls, is why the Liberals in the Far Left Democratic Party are still showing the world their posteriors while continuing to throw the longest mass temper tantrum in recorded history.

Their ego-driven political ideology does not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation and that Americans in “Flyover Country” can think for themselves.

As of today, Liberals outnumber Conservatives in only SIX states.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency and those Special Elections on Tuesday Night.

To be blunt, Bill Maher and the rest of “The Smartest People in the Room”…SIMPLY ARE NOT AS INTELLIGENT AS THEY BELIEVE THEMSELVES TO BE.

Their unbridled hatred for President Trump and, quite literally, all things American, has created an enormous disconnect between the Democratic Party and average Americans living in the Heartland.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

So, to summarize, by labeling Patriotism as “Jingoism” and by ridiculing those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values who happen to reside in America’s Heartland, the Democratic Party cost themselves the Presidency…going from the “In Crowd” to the Outhouse.

If I was a Modern American Liberal with any sort of self-awareness, I would be throwing a temper tantrum, too…over my own ungrateful arrogant ignorance that caused the defeat of  my Presidential Candidate and cost my party everything on that fateful Tuesday Night.

However, as Bill Maher clearly demonstrates, the Democrats still don’t get it.

Patriotism is cool…again!

We Red State Voters are Making America Great Again!

Now, Bill…

Would you like some cheese with all that whine?

Until He Comes,

Trump’s National Security Speech and the Schumer/Pelosi Rebuttal – “A Choice Between Right and Wrong”

January 9, 2019

09dc-trumptranscript-facebookjumbo

For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. To every member of Congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen, call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border. This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country. And that is what I will always do so help me God.- President Donald J. Trump, Address to the Nation, 1/8/19

Last night, the 45th President of the United States of America delivered an address to the nation concerning the National Security and Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border.

During his presentation, President Trump was factual, focused, passionate, and presidential as he masterfully laid out the case for securing our border, including provided the reasoning for the $5.6 billion which he is asking for in order to erect a steel barrier to help end the drug trafficking, human trafficking, and breaking and entering of our Sovereign Nation by illegal aliens, some of whom possess criminal records as evidenced by the 266,000 whom ICE Agents have arrested. Others have come into our country and murdered 4,000 of our citizens, committing 100,000 assaults and 30,000 sex crimes.

He also pointed out that, in the past, Democrats have supported building a wall on the Southern Border.

2006 – The New York Times

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 — The Senate on Friday approved the building of 700 miles of fence along the nation’s southwestern border, fulfilling a demand by conservative Republicans to take steps to slow the flow of illegal immigrants before exploring broader changes to immigration law.

The Senate vote, 80 to 19, came as lawmakers finished a batch of legislation before heading home to campaign.

2013 – Politico.com

The Senate on Thursday passed the most monumental overhaul of U.S. immigration laws in a generation, which would clear the way for millions of undocumented residents to have a chance at citizenship, attract workers from all over the world and devote unprecedented resources for security along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The vote was 68-32. Fourteen Republicans crossed the aisle to vote with all Democrats in favor. Thursday’s vote now puts the onus of immigration reform on the Republican-led House, where leaders have been resistant to the Senate legislation.

“The strong bipartisan vote we took is going to send a message across the country, it’s going to send a message to the other end of the Capitol as well,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the leader of the so-called Gang of Eight. “The bill has generated a level of support that we believe will be impossible for the House to ignore.

Schumer was wrong. The bill did not make it through the House of Representatives.

After the president spoke last night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded in what came off as desperate, immature, and out-of-touch attempt at a rebuttal on behalf of the Far Left Democratic Party.

Quite Frankly, they sounded more concerned about the inconvenience which delayed paychecks were causing 800,00 Government Workers than they were about the safety of American Citizens, calling all of the violence and human suffering caused by an unsecured Southern Border a “manufactured crisis”, accusing President Trump of “misinformation” and “malice”.

The two Democratic Leaders, giving the appearance of a couple of stereotypical clueless bureaucrats on auto pilot, insisted that the president end the shutdown first and then “we can work to resolve our differences over border security”.

Priorities. Priorities.

Isn’t that the same sort of line that the Democrats handed President Reagan when they got him to bestow amnesty on thousands of illegal aliens back in the day?

“I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” – Wimpy

Last night’s Democratic Rebuttal was the biggest exercise in hypocrisy since Obama used the horrible mass murder in Sandy Hook to call for gun control, using children as stage props.

Dems in walled mansions shouldn’t throw stones.

As the president so eloquently put it last night,

Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is for the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

Indeed.

NY Times Posts Op Ed “The Inevitability of Impeachment”…Over What?

December 29, 2018

mrz052017dAPR_s878x638

He’s blowing up their very restrictive class distinctions. He’s blowing up the way they talk about things inside the Beltway. He’s blowing up diplomacy. He’s blowing up foreign relations. And it’s being done in a way these people can’t figure out. For the life of them, they can’t understand straight talk. To them, straight talk is thuggery, it’s insulting, and it’s mysterious. And so Trump is like an invader, an alien, and he’s gotta go. – Rush Limbaugh, “The Rush Limbaugh Radio Program”, 7/19/18

Elizabeth Drew is a “political journalist” who for many years covered Washington for The New Yorker and is the author of “Washington Journal: Reporting Watergate and Richard Nixon’s Downfall.”

Yesterday, The New York Times posted an article written by her titled “The Inevitability of Impeachment”. As we say down in Dixie, “Ya’ll ain’t gonna believe this ****”

An impeachment process against President Trump now seems inescapable. Unless the president resigns, the pressure by the public on the Democratic leaders to begin an impeachment process next year will only increase. Too many people think in terms of stasis: How things are is how they will remain. They don’t take into account that opinion moves with events.

Whether or not there’s already enough evidence to impeach Mr. Trump — I think there is — we will learn what the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has found, even if his investigation is cut short.

A significant number of Republican candidates didn’t want to run with Mr. Trump in the midterms, and the results of those elections didn’t exactly strengthen his standing within his party. His political status, weak for some time, is now hurtling downhill.

…The word “impeachment” has been thrown around with abandon. The frivolous impeachment of President Bill Clinton helped to define it as a form of political revenge. But it is far more important and serious than that: It has a critical role in the functioning of our democracy.

Impeachment was the founders’ method of holding a president accountable between elections. Determined to avoid setting up a king in all but name, they put the decision about whether a president should be allowed to continue to serve in the hands of the representatives of the people who elected him.

The founders understood that overturning the results of a presidential election must be approached with care and that they needed to prevent the use of that power as a partisan exercise or by a faction. So they wrote into the Constitution provisions to make it extremely difficult for Congress to remove a president from office, including that after an impeachment vote in the House, the Senate would hold a trial, with a two-thirds vote needed for conviction.

Lost in all the discussion about possible lawbreaking by Mr. Trump is the fact that impeachment wasn’t intended only for crimes. For example, in 1974 the House Judiciary Committee charged Richard Nixon with, among other things, abusing power by using the I.R.S. against his political enemies. The committee also held the president accountable for misdeeds by his aides and for failing to honor the oath of office’s pledge that a president must “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

 The current presidential crisis seems to have only two possible outcomes. If Mr. Trump sees criminal charges coming at him and members of his family, he may feel trapped. This would leave him the choice of resigning or trying to fight congressional removal. But the latter is highly risky.

It always seemed to me that Mr. Trump’s turbulent presidency was unsustainable and that key Republicans would eventually decide that he had become too great a burden to the party or too great a danger to the country. That time may have arrived. In the end the Republicans will opt for their own political survival. Almost from the outset some Senate Republicans have speculated on how long his presidency would last. Some surely noticed that his base didn’t prevail in the midterms.

But it may well not come to a vote in the Senate. Facing an assortment of unpalatable possibilities, including being indicted after he leaves office, Mr. Trump will be looking for a way out. It’s to be recalled that Mr. Nixon resigned without having been impeached or convicted. The House was clearly going to approve articles of impeachment against him, and he’d been warned by senior Republicans that his support in the Senate had collapsed. Mr. Trump could well exhibit a similar instinct for self-preservation. But like Mr. Nixon, Mr. Trump will want future legal protection.

Mr. Nixon was pardoned by President Gerald Ford, and despite suspicions, no evidence has ever surfaced that the fix was in. While Mr. Trump’s case is more complex than Mr. Nixon’s, the evident dangers of keeping an out-of-control president in office might well impel politicians in both parties, not without controversy, to want to make a deal to get him out of there.

I wonder is Ms. Drew has ever thought about writing Harlequin Romance Novels?

She certainly has a flair for fiction.

So, the Democrats and the Vichy Republicans are going to miraculously come together and impeach President Donald J. Trump.

Really? Over what, exactly?

The fact that he misspoke in Helsinki? Big hairy deal.

“But…but…RUSSIAN COLLUSION!!!”

Prove it. Mueller hasn’t.

The fact that he tweets too much?

He is bypassing the Main Stream Media, just like Ronald Reagan did.

The fact that he has shut down to government in order to get the funds to place a wall on our Southern Border?

The majority of Americans want him to.

Or, is it because he is not allowing thousands of illegal aliens (future Democratic Voters) to invade our country in “caravans”?

They should have come here legally.

The fact that he is stopping Obamacare?

It was failing before he won the 2016 Presidential Election.

Perhaps you would like to impeach President Trump over the fact that he supports our Armed Forces and he wants them to be better equipped than our enemies?

And, in turn, they love him, as demonstrated during his and Melania’s trip to visit them in Iraq at Christmas?

During the Obama Administration, our Brightest and Best were used as guinea pigs in social experimentation for your political causes.

Perhaps you Democrats are upset because his Foreign Policy of America First is working so well that he is bringing home our troops from Syria and Afghanistan.

I thought you guys were anti-war?

Perhaps you’re upset that we have such a gracious, classy First Lady who speaks 6 languages and who represents her husband and our nation so well at home and abroad?

In the cellphone sales business, that’s called an “UPGRADE”.

I know what it is that you want to impeach him over, Ms. Drew.

He beat Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2016 for the Presidency of the United States of America despite the best efforts of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice and FBI Hierarchy and all of George Soros’ money that was spent on “Astroturf Protests”.

Sorry. Not sorry.

The fact that you guys in the Far Left Democratic Party are a bunch of undereducated, immature, poor losers whose entire Political Platform is composed of nothing but hate for President Donald J. Trump is NOT grounds for impeachment.

Keep on living in your bubble on the East and Left Coasts while pulling away ideologically from average Americans and the Democratic Party will be destined to go the way of the Whigs. (Look it up, if your fellow “writers” haven’t taken them out of the history books, also.)

And, when this push for Impeachment fails, please don’t try a “Russian” Revolution.

Average Americans still proudly cling to our Bibles and guns.

And, you guys don’t even know which restroom to use.

Beto Meets With Barack at His DC Offices…Beto 2020?

December 5, 2018

DtnX-gqWkAAEJ2m

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and former President Barack Obama reportedly met last month as the congressman mulls over a run for the White House in 2020.

The two met at Obama’s offices in Washington D.C., on Nov. 16, according to a Tuesday report from The Washington Post.

O’Rourke, who recently lost a Senate campaign to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz, initially said he would “not be a candidate for president in 2020,” but changed his tune last week at a town hall in El Paso, telling reporters that his initial comment was made when winning the Senate race was “100 percent our focus.”

Now, O’Rourke said, he and his wife are “thinking through a number of things” and have “made a decision not to rule anything out.”

His reported meeting with Obama came just four days before the former president labeled O’Rourke “an impressive young man.” Speaking to his former strategist, David Axelrod, Obama said the Texas politician appears to be running on a platform that he actually believes.

“What I oftentimes am looking for first and foremost is, ‘Do you seem to mean it? Are you in this thing because you have a strong set of convictions that you are willing to risk things for?’” Obama said, noting that O’Rourke struck him as that kind of person.

And in addition to the president’s praise, former Obama aides have reportedly compared O’Rourke to Obama — a young, liberal politician who rose through the ranks after establishing a grass-roots movement.

A former senior adviser to O’Rourke told NBC News recently that many former Obama officials are saying: “If we can be helpful as you think about this, let us know. If you want our perspective on what it’s like to run a national campaign, let us know.”

And young Democrats don’t appear to be pushing O’Rourke, whose House term ends Jan. 3, to the side.

New Hampshire’s Young Democrats political group, as well as Iowa Democrats, last month invited O’Rourke to speak in their respective states.

The pieces are beginning to fall into place, gentle readers.

Back in May of 2017, Yahoo News reported that

Former President Barack Obama gave a speech Tuesday in Milan, Italy, at a summit on food innovation. During a question-and-answer session after the speech, Obama may have tossed in a dig at people who didn’t show up to the polls in November.

“You get the politicians you deserve,” Obama said without mentioning President Trump. “And if you don’t vote and you don’t participate and you don’t pay attention, then you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interests.”

The comments came during a discussion about leadership.

“The mark of a good leader is somebody who is able to empower other people,” Obama said. “So often we think of leadership as somebody at the top who is ordering other people around … but it turns out, for me at least, what made me understand leadership was when I could see somebody who thought they didn’t have a voice, thought they didn’t have influence or didn’t have power, and teach them how to speak up on the things that were affecting their lives.”

“Politicians can help guide policy,” he added. “But change is going to come from what people do every day.”

The 55-year-old former president, who signed a record book deal in March, said he is spending most of his time lately working on a memoir, “fighting Michelle for closet space” and carving out the “next phase” of his political career: empowering “an effective network of global activists.”

Two months before, in March of 2017, during his Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show, Rush Limbaugh stated that,

…The story is Valerie Jarrett moving in to the Obama family home. What the hell’s up with that?

There’s a story here is about how Obama and his people are running the resistance operation from that home, and that’s why she’s moved in. The story here is the Democrat Party being blown out of the water in election after election after election. The story here is Barack Obama’s agenda has been totally reputed by the American people. It has been rejected in 2010. It was rejected in 2012. It was rejected in 2016. It was sent packing. The story here is that Barack Obama is humiliated and angry and embarrassed that his effort to transform the United States of America into some kind of socialist paradise has been interrupted, that he was the architect of the Democrat Party defeat. And that cannot stand for the history books! And so this story is all about the Democrat Party trying to rewrite history and make it look like they actually won were it not for the cheating of the Russians and Trump.

They’re trying to convince the Europeans of this. They’re doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump, his administration, his victory. That is the story that people need to focus on because there’s evidence for that. There is evidence at every town hall protest. There is evidence all over this country every day that this sabotage is going on.

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, a favorite of the 60s counter-culture, was also on the reading list of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and his First Secretary of State and Failed 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Let’s look at rule #8 – rule #13:

8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

It’s very apparent from what has happened during Trump’s Presidency that somebody’s read Alinsky’s book.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, Including Former President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

As I have written, during Obama’s two terms as President, America suffered under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

Obama owes everything that he is to the benevolence and largess of America and her people.

…And, the money of Former Nazi Sympathizer George Soros

In his tenure as President, he proved that he was president of some of the people, not all of the people.

And, those of us, whom his failed political ideology did not appeal to, had enough of his failed leadership and decided not to go “quietly into that good night” by voting for Donald J. Trump,  instead of Obama’s chosen successor, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Organizing For America, the Far Left Activist organization that Obama brought with him during his presidency, remains active.

Obama, in conjunction with Soros and his numerous “nonprofit organizations” have already been training not just “global activists” but “community activists” as well.

Do you think that I am exaggerating? Go to BarackObama.com, and you will read the following…

As President Obama has said, the change we seek will take longer than one term or one presidency. Real change—big change—takes many years and requires each generation to embrace the obligations and opportunities that come with the title of Citizen.

“True democracy is a project that’s much bigger than any one of us. It’s bigger than any one person, any one president, and any one government. It’s a job for all of us.”

The thing is, boys and girls, “true democracy” is MOB RULE.

That is why our Founders made us a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

It is also why they created an Electoral College.

…To prevent what Barack Obama and all the rest of those in the Radical Far Left Democratic Party want to accomplish.

Let’s face it. The Democrats have no one in their hierarchy that could legitimately beat Trump in 2020.

And, the “Socialist Firebrand Movement is in full swing among the Dems.

Meanwhile, Obama wants to mentor a whole new generation of Far Left Socialists, just like him.

If you believe that this recent meeting with Beto O’Rourke was just a “fluke”…you obviously haven’t been paying attention.

And, you probably believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a unbiased public servant “just doing his job”.

Just remember…now you know where the money is coming from.

And, who is behind it.

President Trump is going to have to deal with this situation head on.

Or, as the late Fred Thompson, in his great role as Admiral Josh Painter, in “The Hunt for Red October” said,

This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.

Until He Comes,

Hyde-Smith Wins MS Senate Seat, in Spite of Soros’ Funding of Espy

November 28, 2018

Cindy Hyde-Smith, Donald Trump

Last night, around 9:30 p.m. Central, politico.com reported that

Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith has won Mississippi’s Senate runoff, defeating Democrat Mike Espy despite controversy over recent comments. Hyde-Smith had 56 percent of the vote to Espy’s 44 percent when the Associated Press called the race with more than three-quarters of all precincts reporting. The result means Republicans will hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate next year.

The runoff for the remainder of Thad Cochran’s term was held because neither candidate got a majority of the vote in a crowded race Nov. 6. Since then, Hyde-Smith has drawn scrutiny for saying she would attend a “public hanging” for a supporter, before apologizing and calling the comment an exaggerated form of regard.

Hyde-Smith faced an unusually energetic special election challenge from Espy, a former congressman and Clinton-era agriculture secretary who inspired slim Democratic hopes of repeating the party’s miraculous Senate victory in Alabama last year, as Hyde-Smith faced a storm of controversy over recent remarks about attending a “public hanging.”

Espy, who is African-American, called Hyde-Smith’s “public hanging” comments a “black eye” for the state. Hyde-Smith ultimately apologized to “anyone offended” by her remarks, which she said were an exaggerated form of regard for a supporter. But the comments, which some viewed as connected to Mississippi’s history of lynching, brought unexpected scrutiny to Hyde-Smith, putting Republicans on edge even in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1982.

President Donald Trump visited the state Monday in an attempt to make sure GOP voters are engaged for the runoff.

“Don’t take any chances,” Trump implored supporters at the first of two rallies. “You have to vote. We cannot allow Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to erode [GOP control of the Senate] by winning the great state of Mississippi.”

Hyde-Smith’s victory makes her the first woman elected to represent Mississippi in the Senate.

Hyde-Smith’s victory was not an easy one.

Guess who attempted to come to the rescue of the disgraced and indicted Former Secretary of Agriculture under Bill “Bubba” Clinton?

Earlier in the day, Breitbart.com reported that

Organizations financed by George Soros are making a last-ditch effort to get Mississippi Senate candidate Mike Espy elected in today’s runoff race.
Soros himself donated $10,800 to Espy’s senatorial campaign via the billionaire activist’s Soros Fund Management.

MoveOn.org, which has been massively backed by Soros, has organized a phone bank and a number of other iniatives to mobilize voters for Espy. “We need to contact every person on this list to make sure they vote in the Nov. 27 runoff!” exclaimed the radical organization on its website.

Besides funding from Soros, MoveOn.org has also been financed by the Tides Foundation, a leftwing sponsorship organization that has itself received donations from Soros and has partnered with Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

Over at Color of Change, another group financially backed by Soros, supporters are being urged to vote for Espy.

One organization that has been particularly active in helping to mobilize voters is The Collective, a little-known but increasingly influential political organization that says it is seeking to build a “black political power” movement in the U.S.

Breitbart News reported in September that Soros is a financial contributor to The Collective.

The group officially endorsed Espy in the Senate race and has been helping to drive voters to the polls, including with a text-messaging program.

On November 20th, I wrote about the “Robo-calling” on behalf of Mike Espy by an organization named Open Progress, a 501 non-profit with a very profitable Get-Out-The-Vote business named OPro By Open Progress LLC.

Open Progress’ co-founder is Elizabeth Haynes, Founder and President of a specialist market research and analytics firm which employs a data-driven approach to solving questions in the consumer, retail, and media sectors for the buy-side.

Open Progress worked on both the Doug Jones Campaign in Alabama and the Conor Lamb Campaign in Pennsylvania.

As the Church Lady would say, “Isn’t that special?”

Well, as one of my favorite old hymn’s title would suggest, “Bless Be the Tie That Binds”.

Coming full circle, now we know who paid for all of that “Robo-calling” and “Robo-texting” to Mississippi Voters.

The Puppet Master himself, George Soros, was once again pulling the strings of a Democratic Candidate.

However, this time, the voters chose their own Senator, not one buoyed by a bunch of Democratic “Carpetbaggers” who didn’t even live in the Magnolia State, much less give a darn about its citizens.

President Trump, as he had been already doing during his MAGA Rallies before the Midterm Election, reminded Mississippi Voters of the reason why they needed to prevent another Washington Insider from going up to the Capitol on their behalf.

He also reminded all of us down here why we voted for him.

Trump does not use flowery phrasing. Nor does he speak in platitudes while employing circuitous logic to attempt to make a point.

He simply tells it like it is, speaking to Americans as a friend would, not as a scolding martinet of a teacher, as the Democrats do.

Last night was a great night for Mississippi.

The Good Guys won.

Until He Comes,

The MS Senatorial Runoff Election – Of Memphis Democrats, Robo -Texting, and “Open Progress”

November 20, 2018

Screen-Shot-2018-11-06-at-10.23.25-PM

On Tuesday, November 27th, there will be a special Runoff Election for Thad Cochran’s former Senate Seat in Mississippi between Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith and Former Clinton Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy.

Living in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State, I have a very special interest in this race. And, being the political junkie that I am, my ears perked up when I came across this story posted about a week ago by the Memphis NBC Affiliate, WMC-TV…

Democrat Mike Espy might be getting some help from across the state line in his bid to defeat Republican Cindy Hyde Smith in a runoff election for US Senate in Mississippi in two weeks.

Corey Strong is chairman of the Shelby County Democratic Party, a party that likely will be working in Mississippi until a runoff election for US Senate on November 27.

“North Mississippi and Memphis are connected at the hip,” Strong said.

Strong said Shelby County Democratic leaders met with Mike Espy’s team Monday and have already been phone banking and writing post cards to try and secure a victory.

“We are looking at potentially having a day of action for members of Shelby County and a concerted effort to go down and support Mike Espy in that race,” Strong said.

Shelby County Democrats were successful this year in a sweep in August of county-wide offices.

“Shelby County Democrats have really come a long way,” said WMC Action News 5 political analyst Michael Nelson. “Certainly their advice or assistance can’t help but benefit Espy in some way.”

Hyde-Smith was appointed by Governor Phil Bryant earlier this year and secured the endorsement of President Donald Trump.

“Connected at the hip”, you say?

Well, that’s only because Northwest Mississippi is populated by Former Memphians, like myself, who were invited to leave our Hometown by Former Democrat Mayor W.W. (Willie) Herenton, who was a crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

But, I digress.

About the “phone banking” mentioned in the above article…

Yesterday afternoon, while I was at work, I received, in error, a text message directed at my wife from an organization named Open Progress, asking her who she was going to vote for and asking her to vote for Mike Espy. I texted back asking them to not contact this number again.

Who is “Open Progress”? I’m glad you asked.

One part of the organization is a 501 Non-Profit.

The other part is VERY profitable.

According to their website, openprogress.com,

Open Progress created OPro by Open Progress LLC to serve the needs of candidates that traditional agencies serve poorly.

We have no interest in hoarding our knowledge — Our goal is to empower great progressive candidates and campaigns with a strong digital vocabulary, sophisticated methods, and exceptional data.

OPro cuts the clutter of traditional communications like direct mail, robocalls, and TV ads. All of these methods are expensive and, data show, minimally effective. Instead, we utilize modern, efficient, and effective ways of reaching people. These include on-point social media strategies, human-to-human texting campaigns, and exceptional volunteer recruitment and utilization techniques. We’re passionate about both demystifying social media strategies and empowering our candidates and campaign managers with them. By building better and more transparent digital coalitions, campaigns can focus on getting their message out to voters, not just chasing donors.

When it comes to texting, we believe that real conversations are what change hearts and minds. By engaging in direct discussions, committing to finding answers when we don’t have them, and really taking time to listen, our texters are given the ability to create real change. With efficient and precise data collection, moreover, we allow for future gains for our campaigns. What we learn about voters isn’t left on the cutting room floor, but stored for use in the next election. Our 2,000-member (and growing!) Text Troop gives you the means to reach more people than knocking on doors or calling phones ever could. Not only do we create new human connections, we make sure they’re for keeps.

So, just what is this “Text Troop”? Again, per openprogress.com,

The Open Progress Text Troop is a diverse community of committed volunteers from across the country who are engaging in issue-focused conversations with voters via person-to-person text messages. We encourage citizens across the country, whether English or Spanish-speaking, to register to vote. We even work to persuade and identify their support for our causes and candidates. We also help them find their polling locations. Our volunteers are trained by the best in order to create rich conversations with a better informed electorate. And we want YOU to join us!

Worried you don’t have time? Even just 2 hours a week will allow you reach 1000 people.

Open Progress’ co-founder is Elizabeth Haynes, Founder and President of a specialist market research and analytics firm which employs a data-driven approach to solving questions in the consumer, retail, and media sectors for the buy-side.

Open Progress worked on both the Doug Jones Campaign in Alabama and the Conor Lamb Campaign in Pennsylvania.

As the Church Lady would say, “Isn’t that special?”

So, gentle readers, let me break this down for you. A Former Secretary of Agriculture under Bubba Clinton has the whole weight of the Democratic Party at his disposal leading to a bunch of outside political hacks and celebrities becoming involved in a Senatorial Race in Mississippi.

…Just like failed Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams had behind her in Georgia.

Cindy Hyde-Smith has a fight on her hands.

Gosh. I wonder who could advocate for her against the Democrats?

Oh, wait!

President Trump is going to be holding two more rallies in Mississippi before next Tuesday’s runoff.

Pass the popcorn.

This is getting good.

Until He Comes,
