Democrats Diverted Nation When Coronavirus Was Beginning

When Democrats whine about an alleged late response of the Trump administration to the coronavirus, they should first look in the mirror.

For when the virus was germinating in Wuhan and the U.S. could have possibly gotten quicker wind of it, the nation was diverted by the unsuccessful Democrat impeachment effort against the president.

If anyone is this responsible for a delayed response, it is the Democrats. GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the point Tuesday on a radio show: “He was first, and I think Tom [GOP Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas] was right on the mark. And it came up while we were tied down on the impeachment trial,” he said on The Hugh Hewitt Show. “And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment. But Tom figured this out early, and he was absolutely right.”

Former GOP Senate aide John Ashbrook also said Tuesday that the pandemic probably arrived in the U.S. the same day Democrats sent articles of impeachment to the Senate. The same day.

Democrats were playing political games while a silent threat was getting ready to kill thousands of Americans. Not only do they not acknowledge their share of the blame, they try and switch it to the president. Shame is a concept foreign to them, as are logic and natural fabrics.

McConnell mentions Tom Cotton. If two GOP senators have made a name for themselves recently, it is Cotton and Senator John Thune (R-SD). You may hear from them in 2024.

McConnell concluded: “The way I thought it [the economic rescue bill] would work best would be for those of us in the Senate to try to get started on a bipartisan basis, and we were doing really quite well, as you may recall, until the speaker of the House decided to insert herself into the process, which created a couple of days of unnecessary partisan sniping. But we got past that. And in the end, I think the best evidence is that there was not a single vote against it.”

Whether it’s unnecessary sniping or diverting the nation away from a mortal threat, you can always count on Democrats to be, well, Democrats.

NBC’s Chuck Todd Asks Biden If Trump ‘Has Blood On His Hands’

Anyone can see the media’s attacks on the president every day during the virus briefings. The president is good at shooting them down in flames. But when he’s not there to defend himself, political cowards like NBC’s Chuck Todd try to get away with a lot.

During Sunday’s Meet the Press Todd tried a move on Joe Biden. To Biden’s minor credit he did not rise to the total bait.

Todd asked Biden, concerning the virus, “Do you think there is blood on the president’s hands considering the slow response? Or is that too harsh of a criticism?”

Biden responded that it was “a little too harsh.” A little, Joe? Yeah, and the Pacific is “a little” deep.

Certain of Todd’s fellow media members quickly took him to task for the question, “Tim Russert would never ask a question like this. Even Joe Biden didn’t take the bait to assist in a viral moment attempt,” said The Hill media reporter Joe Concha.

Concha also said: “Chuck Todd served as a moderator of an NBC News debate on Feb 19, which was more than two weeks after President Trump suspended travel from China. Number of questions Todd asked any of the candidates about Coronavirus? Zero.”

The media has not realized the ground has shifted under them. They live in what they think were their glory days of the Mueller probe and impeachment hearings, before it all came crashing down around them.

Like a sad piano player in a seedy bar, the media knows only that one tune and they play it over and over again, regardless of what any customer may want to hear.

America is far past that and lives in the here and now of a national crisis. Telling blatant lies, as is always expected of Todd, was previously shrugged off by many as par for the course for the mainstream media.

In the present we are dealing with life and death on a daily basis. But Todd doesn’t see that. He only sees his rancid brand of politics. As such, one day in the not too distant future, he may be called to account by viewers for his words of today.

Pelosi And Schumer Play Politics While Americans Die

The Democrats have done a lot of despicable things as of late: The Russian hoax, the Mueller probe, the impeachment scam, trying to socialize our healthcare system (Can you imagine today, if they had been successful?), their open borders policy, and many other travesties too numerous to mention outside of a tome.

But this, this…holding up aid to working families because the Senate economic rescue package does not contain socialist boondoggles, has to be the worst thing they have ever done in modern history.

Fox News reports that GOP senators are expressing outrage on the floor of the Senate: “The country is burning, and your side wants to play political games,” said Senate Majority Whip John Thune, (R-SD). “It is time to get this done. The American people expect us to act, they need action. We need to get this done for the American people. Here we are dilly-dallying around. This bill is about workers, families, people out there hurting economically—we’re in a position to do something about it and it is high time that we did.”

Watch Thune during this crisis. He has long been respected in DC. He could be making a national name for himself.

“Republicans understand that a national crisis calls for urgency and calls for bipartisanship,” GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said. “It’s time for Democrats to stop playing politics and step up to the plate… We’re at war with no ammo. Democrats are talking about this as if it is some juicy political opportunity. This is not a juicy political opportunity… This has got to stop and today’s the day it has to stop. The country is out of time.”

McConnell is right. Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Chuck Schumer (NY) see this as just another chance to fatten the coffers of their pet radical groups and special interests. This while millions could go without jobs and paychecks. They are playing a dangerous game. They will likely lose.

MSNBC Legal Analyst Says Trump Is Guilty Of Murder Over Coronavirus

Want to hear somebody who makes AOC and Rashida Tlaib sound reasonable? Meet Glenn Kirschner, an MSNBC pundit and lawyer. He thinks the president is possibly criminally liable for murder. And yes, he is quite probably clinically insane.

Here is the proof of his lunacy: “Hey All. Can we talk about 1 of the few topics I may actually know too much about: homicide? Specifically, whether Donald Trump may have criminal exposure for some level of negligent homicide or voluntary/involuntary manslaughter for the way he’s mishandled the Coronavirus crisis,” said Kirschner in a frothing Twitter post on Tuesday.

Well, he wanted press. He got it. Sadly, the press only exposes him as a fantasist. Wonder if he thinks Hillary Clinton should be held for murder over Benghazi? Nahhhh…

MORE NEWS: Five worst pandemics in world history

He goes on: “Further, whereas the evidence is clear that Trump has committed multiple criminal offenses both before his tenure as president (campaign finance crimes) & during his time as president (obstruction of justice, bribery/extortion) homicide liability by his negligent/grossly negligent (and/or possibly intentional) mishandling of the Coronavirus crisis in the US is a more nuanced and thorny issue and deserves careful consideration. But the homicide liability issue MUST be addressed because ALL criminal charges will have to be investigated and, if the evidence dictates it, prosecuted come Jan. 2021. Stay tuned.”

Ah, so he wants a Mueller probe do-over and an impeachment replay, both because his side lost so badly. Not gonna happen, Glenn.

Then he switches to his Big Kahuna, the potential prosecution of Trump for murder on the coronavirus. Yeah, that’ll fly.

MORE NEWS: Sanders campaign on the brink of quitting

Let’s see who the president could bring as defense witnesses in such a trial. Well, there are both the left-wing Democrat governors of New York and California who have praised the president and the administration on their efforts. There’s CNN‘s Dana Bash, who lauded him on his tone and manner. And there is the American people, who approve of his handing of the virus by a solid margin.

The only people left are those who would rather insanely try to make up absurd charges against the president than join in the national effort to fight the virus.

Those would be people like…Glenn Kirschner.

House Democrat-Turned-Republican Van Drew Says More May Join GOP

New Republican House member from New Jersey Jeff Van Drew, who switched parties from Democrat over the impeachment hoax, says there are other moderate House Democrats waiting to join him in GOP ranks. According to him, they are waiting to see how he does as a Republican.

“When it does go well, I do believe there will be other people that will think the same way. There are some good moderate Democrats on the other side and I really believe they belong on the Republican side,” he told Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime.”

Van Drew said that the Democrats were “lurching” too far to the left.

“It’s becoming more of a socialist party and that is not what I signed up for,” stressing that he will not be a lockstep Republican vote on every matter. And, he said, “that’s the way politics should be.”

How does the presidential race stack up according to Van Drew?

“I think they saw some polling that scared the daylights out of them and now the Democrats are stuck with a candidate that almost nobody wants,” he said, referring to Joe Biden.

Van Drew’s comments were made Monday, before Biden’s Super Tuesday victories. But the point is still valid. Smart Democrats see the problem child Joe Biden is on the campaign trail. His gaffes are only surpassed by his strange speech patterns. This man will be raw meat for Donald Trump during the debates and there are likely vulnerable Democrat House freshmen, and others, from moderate districts who don’t relish running on the same ticket with Sleepy Joe.

They have enough problems as it is trying to convince their middle of the road electorate that there is a good reason they belong to the de facto socialist open borders and infanticide party. Will some of them jump ship before an actual socialist is their party leader? Or leave before a guy who mumbles the Declaration of Independence takes the big nod in Milwaukee?

If just under twenty of them did, Nancy Pelosi would be looking for a new job.

Steyer Throws In The Towel After 3rd Place Finish In SC

I can remember individuals like Tom Steyer from my days as a political consultant.

These were people who had achieved private sector success but were, in late middle age, bored. They wanted to put their money to use to get themselves a new gig where the ego stroke was as much or more so than it was at the firms they ran.

Thus, for good and bad, they chose politics. Good for my former self, as they paid big. Bad, in that they thought their former expertise naturally transferred over to political operations. It didn’t. But they were sure it did and were adamant about it.

MORE NEWS: Vintage magazine cover of go-go boot-clad Melania kissing firefighter has Internet aflame

At that point you had two choices. You could take their money and do their moronic bidding, knowing they would lose. Or you could honestly read them the riot act and hope they saw reason, knowing for opening your yap you could lose the contract.

Most operatives, including me, took the money and made the best of it. And that’s what Steyer’s people did. It’s a big reason he placed third in South Carolina and then got out of the race.

He was a one trick pony, impeachment. After Pelosi stole his thunder he had no reason to politically live. But sure his impeachment win, not conviction win, would make him a hero to the Democrat rank and file he jumped in the race and spent a lot to just look hysterical and foolish.

There wasn’t one trendy Democrat fad he did not embrace. Reparations? Sure. Repeal Trump tax cuts? Uh huh, regardless of the politically suicidal aspect of the idea. Global warming, climate change, whatever they’re calling it this week? Of course. He couldn’t let a crazy notion go by without making out with it behind the bleachers.

In the end the very nothingness of his message, appeal, and candidacy caught up with him. His unfortunate hip hop dance routine, that we covered yesterday, was the final embarrassing nail in the coffin for this political non-entity.

Go back to making money, Tom. You seem to be good at it. Just leave the country out of it. We have enough idiots to deal with already.

Trump Tries Georgia End Run On Senate Race

By David Kamioner | February 21, 2020

The GOP has a problem in Georgia and his name is Doug Collins. Not that Collins isn’t sharp and a strong Trump supporter. He proved both by his exemplary performance during the House impeachment sham.

The issue is that his political ambitions could throw an easy GOP seat to the Democrats.

GOP Senator Johnny Isakson resigned late last year due to health reasons. GOP Governor Brian Kemp appointed Republican Kelly Loeffler to take the seat until a special election this November. Trump and the GOP party organization endorsed Loeffler for the seat. But then Collins got in the picture.

MORE NEWS: Buttigieg invokes scripture to slam Trump, but nobody is buying it

Looking at very strong polling numbers against Loeffler, he’s bucking the GOP and the president and running for the seat. His excellent performance during impeachment must have only given him more confidence in his decision and made him think the president would not come down too hard on him.

He is right about the president, but not about the party. They had this to say when he made his decision: “This shortsighted decision is stunning,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Kevin McLaughlin. “Doug Collins’ selfishness will hurt David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and President Trump. Not to mention the people of Georgia who will stand to bear the burden of it for years to come. All he has done is put two senate seats, multiple house seats, and Georgia’s 16 electoral votes in play.”

You can’t really blame Collins. It’s a rule in politics to look out for number one and take your shot when it’s there for you. The party and the president do not agree because Georgia has weird election rules. All candidates run in November and the top person takes the seat. However, if no one takes a majority then a runoff happens in January. So if too many Republicans run, a Democrat can sneak in through the middle and take the seat because the GOP vote gets split.

Got that?

So, not a happy situation in the GOP Georgia family. Thus, dad steps in.

MORE NEWS: Manchin comes crawling back after Trump guilty vote

The president is offering the high-powered DNI, Director of National Intelligence, post to Collins. It’s the most important intel post in the nation and would give Collins serious creds for higher office. If Collins took it that would get him out of the way in Georgia and make everyone happy.

But Collins isn’t biting. Friday morning he told Fox News that he is still running for the Senate seat. He could be holding out for a better price. Or perhaps he looks at his good numbers in the race and thinks Trump will go easy on him and be distracted by his own race.

But the president has just started his pressure on Collins. We’ll see what happens as November get closer.

Trump Rocks Rallies Out West, Slams Bloomberg And Hollywood

For those who don’t particularly care to get their political and cultural analysis from leftist cable news, there is another pundit out there who has usually gets it right.

The president of the United States.

Wednesday and Thursday nights were no exception, as President Trump took well-aimed shots at a range of topics and targets at a raucous rally in Phoenix, Arizona and at a similar event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Arizona, much to Democrat chagrin in 2016, is solid red. Colorado was until recently thought to be solid Democrat territory, though current analysis could put it in the toss up column for November.

Trump continued his mocking of Mike Bloomberg in Phoenix on Wednesday, “I hear he’s getting pounded tonight — you know he’s in a debate. I hear that pounding. He spent $500 million so far and I think he has 15 points. Crazy Bernie was at 30.”

MORE NEWS: The five best presidents in American history

His son Don, Jr. echoed his dad on social media, “Like a deer in the headlights! Like I said last week Mini, you can’t buy personality or wit and the whole world just saw it.”

The president also justifiably hit Amy Klobuchar’s campaign as “dead” on Wednesday because of her disastrous debate performance and her junior high school airhead question of Pete Buttigieg, “Are you calling me dumb?” Pete may have only implied it, Amy. But we have no problem answering, yes.

For good measure, in Phoenix he compared Pete Buttigieg to Mad magazine’s Alfred E. Newman. We get that, though also see a lot of Pee wee Herman there.

Commenting on pop culture in Colorado Springs on Thursday he said, “By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year? ‘And the winner is a movie from South Korea’. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them the best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. I’m looking for like, let’s get ‘Gone with the Wind.’ Can we get ‘Gone with the Wind’ back, please? ‘Sunset Boulevard’? So many good movies.”

The crowd loved it.

“The winner is from South Korea. I thought it was best foreign film. Best foreign movie. No — did this ever happen before? And then you have Brad Pitt. I was never a big fan of his. He got up and gave a little wise guy statement.”

On both nights the president went on to recount his accomplishments in office and take other hard punches at the Democrats for the impeachment drama and their knee jerk leftism.

Alan Dershowitz Makes Bombshell Claim About Obama And Soros

By PoliZette Staff | February 18, 2020

Fox News reports that Harvard Professor and Trump impeachment defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz is claiming, in a startling new bombshell, that Barack Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate the political enemies of far left globalist leader George Soros.

If true, that while president Obama tried to use his own Justice Department as a tool to do the bidding of Soros, heads could roll in a controversy that could engulf DC for some time. It could tank any future political ambitions of Michelle Obama and ensnare the Obama era FBI in yet another cauldron of contention.

MORE NEWS: The five worst presidents in American history

“There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don’t think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that,” said Dershowitz in an interview with Breitbart News, putting the subject in historical perspective.

“I have some information as well about the Obama administration – which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I’m not prepared to disclose it now – about how President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his.”

Dershowitz went on: “We’ve seen this kind of White House influence on the Justice Department virtually in every Justice Department. The difference: This president is much more overt about it, he tweets about it. President Obama whispered to the Justice Department about it. And, I don’t think these 1,000 former Justice Department officials would pass the shoe-on-the-other-foot test. Maybe some of them would, but a good many of them wouldn’t.”

Dershowitz is referencing an open letter by Democrat and Obama era DOJ employees asking Bill Barr to resign as Attorney General over alleged misdeeds involving the Roger Stone case.

MORE NEWS: Disturbing new report reveals FBI had multiple informants in Trump’s presidential campaign

He concluded with more words on his charge against Obama and Soros, “That’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future, yeah. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time; presidents whisper to the Justice Department all the time. It’s very common; it’s wrong, whoever does it — but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 [witness report] form which documents this issue and it will at the right time come out, but I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.”

This is political dynamite. The left is no doubt already readying the spin. But if Dershowitz is not bluffing or exaggerating, this time spin may not be enough.

For Hitting Hillary, Media Blacks Out Tulsi Gabbard Campaign

By David Kamioner | February 16, 2020

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is not your typical Democrat. Sure, she buys into a lot of their socialistic nonsense. But then she wouldn’t be a modern Dem if she didn’t.

However, she has had some good words for the president/does not suffer from TDS, was not for impeachment, and, here’s the worst thing for Dems, she is in a running feud with Hillary Clinton on several fronts.

That is a sin her fellow Democrats and their lapdog media just can’t abide. So the media has spiked her, blacked her out, refused to cover her. Hence her dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Now while I have no enthusiastic brief for the telegenic Gabbard, fair is fair. Also, any enemy of Hillary is an indirect pal of mine. Like Churchill said, “If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”

Here’s what she said about it on Fox Business. Voters “really haven’t had a chance to hear my message or to learn about the background and experience I bring to serve as commander-in-chief because there’s been an almost total corporate media blackout since the day that I started running for president.”

MORE NEWS: Challenger DeAnna Lorraine charging hard against Nancy Pelosi

She continued.

“I am the candidate that’s bringing this unifying message that’s not based on hate, not based on hate for Trump or hate for the other party or hate for any one group or another but is building this coalition of support that’s centered around love of country.”

Wait. What?

Did she actually use the term “love of country?” And she’s a Democrat?! Can you see why many of her fellow Dems and the media loathe her and can’t let her message get out? She also said she doesn’t base every hour of her waking existence on hating the president? Oh whoa. Get the bonnie lass a GOP registration card! Granted, blue Hawaii variety.

Combine those words with the run and gun with Hillary and her persona non grata status with the media is not only understandable, but expected. So across the barricades, as it used to be before the Dems lost their minds, we can throw Gabbard a jaunty salute in recognition of her sanity and patriotism. Then we can get back to the business of beating her party to an electoral pulp.
