Democrats’ Political Death Wish

AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan

Democrats

Heading into what increasingly looks to be a tough year for the Democrats in midterm elections, logic would dictate that they should be working hard to stave off unnecessary political liabilities and prevent any further disaster for their party at the ballot box. Instead—at a time when our nation is overrun with crises almost entirely of the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats’ own making—Democrats seem to be going out of their way to reinforce the notion that they are a party of radical elitists who are disconnected from the values, needs, and interests of the American people.

Rather than finding meaningful ways to ease crippling inflation, lower gas prices, or avert yet another disastrous spring on the southern border, Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress have evidently decided to double down on progressive culture war issues that are alienating parents, families, and everyday Americans in extraordinary numbers. As the left pushes extreme left-wing policies like sex reassignment surgery for children, allowing biological men to compete in women’s sports, and Critical Race Theory and gender ideology in schools, they continue to generally ignore the cascade of real crises that affect normal Americans. And they are doing so at their own increasing peril.

On March 31, the same day the New York Times reported that inflation was “running at the fastest pace since 1982” and one day after the Wall Street Journal reported the administration would end its use of the Trump-era Title 42 (which border officials warn would unleash an unprecedented surge of illegal immigration), Biden opted to use the full bully pulpit of the presidency to promote the “Transgender Day of Visibility.” This is a day reserved by the White House to “honor” “transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people,” support so-called “medical care for transgender kids,” and criticize calls “to ban transgender children from playing sports.” The administration “is standing up for you against all these hateful bills,” Biden said in a video released on his social media pages.

Meanwhile, Biden is using his Department of Justice to push back on red states considering legislation to ban sex change operations for children or to punish parents for forcibly attempting to “change” their children’s gender. A letter sent to state attorneys general from the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Kristen Clarke declares that any attempt to restrict medical procedures available to “transgender youth” amounts to “unlawful discrimination based on their gender identity, including when seeking gender-affirming care,” which the Biden administration went on to define as a series of radical and, in many cases, irreversible interventions.

Additionally, in response to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill—which bans “classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate” for students in kindergarten through third grade—the left reacted in over-the-top fashion. Biden rebuked the bill as “hateful” after it was passed by the Florida Senate Education Committee in February. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki similarly denounced the legislation as “discriminatory” and “horrific.” Hillary Clinton criticized the bill as an instance of “performative cruelty” that “will only serve to hurt children and families.”

Left-wing corporations and celebrities did not hesitate to join the onslaught either. After the bill was signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the Walt Disney Company issued a statement calling for the law to be “struck down,” claiming it “should never have passed and should never have been signed into law.” A chorus of progressive activists, celebrities, and politicians echoed this sentiment—representing the left’s newfound eagerness to indoctrinate young children with gender theory and other age-inappropriate material.

Is it any wonder poll numbers for Biden and other Democrats are now sinking to new record lows?

From historically high inflation to an impending influx of illegal immigration to skyrocketing energy prices, it is almost unfathomable why the Biden team would resort to far-left culture war aggression nearly six months out from a vitally important midterm election, in which they are already poised to suffer major setbacks at nearly every level.

Even some self-described liberals don’t understand it. Last month, talk show host Bill Maher opened up about his growing frustration with the Democratic Party’s increasingly culture war-oriented political platform. “Letting three-year-olds decide what gender they are—this wasn’t something five years ago,” Maher noted. “Look, I haven’t changed—at all. My politics haven’t changed. They’ve changed.”

Should Biden and others in his party continue down this divisive path of cultural extremism, they may soon find that Maher is far from alone in his disillusionment. With the Democratic Party’s sellout to the radical left now complete, the fallout at the ballot box will only continue to grow.

In the March primary elections in Texas, some candidates took screenshots of the results as the nite progressed to prove what happened. They counted early voting and put the totals up soon after the polls closed. Some of them had their totals DECREASE as the nite went on. Other than the winning candidate-generally incumbent–others had their voting tally exactly double thru the nite; all the candidates exactly doubled. The vote computers are all compromised, and not a word is being said….

The people in control in our country may realize they only have 7 months to 2 1/2 years to destroy our country and turn it into a communist country. They are working at a fevered pitch.

While just to run for political office may require a bit of arrogance, the lefties who are currently in control of our government are overwhelmed with arrogance. Most of them are ‘highly educated’, fully indoctrinated in the leftist ideologies, but have none of what used to be called common sense.
Like Pete Buttjudge who thinks highways are racist, or Granholm who thinks that the common folk should live like cavemen, or John Kerry who doesn’t think the exhaust from his private jets is pollution, they have lots of leftist talking points but no real solutions to our problems. And, even worse, what they force on us, while telling us these are solutions, are actually creating more problems and making the problems we already had even worse.
And those folk are so arrogant that they believe what they spew (because they are too smart to be wrong) and they think that we, the common folk, are just too stupid to understand.

This topic is just the tip of the iceberg, with millions of illegals pouring across our southern border, many of them with bad intentions, and no visible means of support, and our entitlement programs in dire straits, meaning that they are already broke, my prediction is, we are not far from a total economic collapse, the likes of something far worse than the Great Depression of 1929. The difference between the class of people that inhabited our country then, as opposed to now, couldn’t be more obvious. The Greatest Generation had resolve, grit, and determination, unlike what we’re seeing now. Just sayin’, things are going to get a lot worse when people are worried about where their next meal is coming from, or even if they’re going to have a roof over their heads. Those of lesser intelligence, will have a tendency to blame those who took advantage of our system, instead of those who allowed them to do so.

There are those Democrats who really believe in the realization of this “dream” and than others who are aware of the reality that its suicidal for their Party but are in a hurry to enplace as much as they can before some of them start losing elections next November. The corporations embracing the agenda have done so after carefully calculating that they wont lose so many retail customers but will make up for the loss by support from other sources. Like Disney will lose more than a few offended traditional families but make progress in contracts and contacts with radical woke Hollywood elites in a trade off.

I am not positive the Democrats will lose the upcoming elections. Why? My friends who are Democrats do not use facts, logic, and reason to make their political decisions. They vote primarily on ideology. We can hope the Independents will choose a different path by voting differently. But no matter what happens, we must have faith that the citizens will make the best decisions at election time.

IF we do not push enough and make enough noise to get our state legislatures to clean up the state election laws, rules, regulations, procedures, equipment and personnel, the conservatives will never again win a consequential election. If those controlling the election procedures are leftists, if they are allowed to bring in literally truckloads of ballots after the election is over, if they can count votes for the left multiples of time and delete the votes for their opponents, there is no way we can win elections.
That sort of thing has happened many times in the past, Chicago is famous for it. It happened in massive quantities in 2020. And organizations like twitter, facebook, google, CNN, and so forth went to great pains to cover it up. If We the People don’t stand up for honesty, there will be none.

Well from the Dems actions (or lack of), it would seem those in Congress & the WH drank the kool-aid and believe that Biden actually won the WH by legitimate votes. So of course they will stay the course. They are totally blind to fact, truth, ethics, morals, etc.

Things would be soooo different if term limits were put on ballots & passed. Perhaps 2024 would be a great year for that initiative.

The ONLY way term limits will ever be enacted is by Convention of States.
The legislators are not going to vote away their rights to the benefit of permanent power, the right to set their own wages and benefits. The constitution defines a method for the states to take back the rights which are guaranteed by the constitution and which are currently ignored by the federal government. That method is a convention of states. And anyone who tells you that such would be impossible, or that it would cause a disaster is simply lying to you to keep their own power, or is ignorant of the facts. The constitution is widely available. Read it yourself.

One problem as I see it: My mom is in her late 80s and cannot drive a car but apparently its okay for the “retirement age community” we have called “elected officials” to drive the country. And where are we now? In the same ditch my moms car would be in if she drove… But that applies to the few incompetent ones, not the many Democrats intentionally destroying America.

Wake up!!! We need every Christian conservative onboard. Become election officials, run for office. The wicked Muslims are doing that to destroy America like they’ve done everywhere they go. Realize they are hear to destroy us-steal everything you have and kill you. That’s what they’ve done everwhere they go!!! They fake that they are friendly. That’s to lie and deceive. Islam is the exact opposite of Christianity!!! We serve God. They serve satan!!!

Conservatives–stop offering the hand of peace to the Marxist traitors who are intent on destroying the Republic. They will only chew your offer up and throw it in our face. Mr. Nice Guys will not only finish last, they will be obliterated along with the American Agenda. Stand up, stand tall, stand firm and meet them head on. They have the numbers and they don’t intend to give an inch. Neither should we. This battle is not an exchange of ideas as it was in the old days. That time is over. This battle is for the life or death of liberty.

The Dems will make up for all of this by simply canceling student loans to buy votes from younger voters. Of course, there is nothing in the Constitution to permit this, but that has never stopped the Dems before.

Too many in the Republican party, the RNC, the politicians and associated others are part of the swamp. RINO’s are too common.
Before the election do your homework. Look at what the candidates voted for in the past. Look at what they said they would do and at what actually happened. And just as insurance, if it has a D after the candidates name, vote for their opponent.

The article is an outstanding read, and it is spot on.
The thing which got me thinking about what has been happening over the past 12 yrs. and four months. Obama, yes, Obama and his agenda and some of his strategies are being played out by everyone he has put into the Whitehouse and into the Shadow Government. What has been seeping out of all the mess we call the “Democrat Party” > The Luciferian Socialist Party.
A strategy that Obama Studied and used as a “Community Organizer” in Chicago (along with three other main ones with the combinations of all of them.
You can see the Cloward-Pivin strategy of “change through chaos” — create chaos then fix it just before an election or a coup d’etat that will not work, for the same reason that invading Ukraine will not work — it’s the people who he cannot break.
They have become psycho-narcissistic as their demonic delusional leaders.

IMHO: The lack of lefty activity is giving notice to conservatives that the illegitimi of the left have some underhanded shenanigans up their rectums where the dark side hides. Remember, old CEO Joe Biden campaigned in 2020 by staying in his basement and being very quiet because he knew the powerful liberal elite extremists were going to cheat to get him elected. And they did, although they had to work harder than they thought they would since President Trump had a lot more support than they thought he did. President Trump simply and honestly erred by underestimating the power of stupid people in large groups; hopefully, President Trump and the GOP learned a lesson or two from these masters of deceit socialist utopian pushing pipe-dreamers with their government RINO buddies will be a lot more watchful when it comes to elections in the future. The illegitimi are just trying to get the conservative patriots lulled into not going to the polls to vote, so don’t let down your guard, be sure to vote, preferably at an honest polling place that requires a photo ID. The illegitimi are not only here, but more are crossing the border illegally every hour of every day! They have infested our entire government structure and are working very hard on their next big cheat to destroy the USA and our culture! These illigitmi can’t win without cheating. Who knows, President Trump may be installed as the nineteenth president of The USA before the next election.

I understand your frustration Joan, however we cannot stop, we MUST vote. This next election will tell the truth. If the socialist democrats squeak out a win, we will all know what is in store for America and where we have to go from there.

I’m predicting another “COVID surge” to once again modify voting requirements… Greg Abbott could solve our immigration problem easier than bussing them to DC: register illegals as “Republican”. Democrats would build a wall overnight!

The Democrats are not worried about losing. That’s why they’re still bulldozing us. They have no resistance and they have paid no consequences. And if you think the next election is going to make a difference… LOL
