An Old Question Of Mine Has Been Answered

The question was one I asked way back when I was just a commenter at Buffoon Juice and not a famous and influential blogger. It was probably about 2007 because Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the Whorehouse. I asked “Why doesn’t Nancy Pelosi pass bills on popular progressive legislation and force the GOP to block or veto them?” Then the Democrats could use that against the GOP in 2008.

Here’s Victor Davis Hanson in today’s American Greatness:

Consider it another way: Why is it that the House is controlled by Democrats, yet its leadership is not pushing through any of the policy proposals voiced so openly on the Democratic primary stage?

Why aren’t progressive representatives introducing bills to pay reparations to African Americans, to legalize infanticide in some cases of late-term abortion, to offer free medical care to illegal aliens, to confiscate AR-15s, to extend Medicare for all, to impose a wealth tax and raise top rates to between 70 and 90 percent, to abolish student debt and ensure free college for all, or to grant blanket amnesty to those currently living in the country illegally?

Simple answer: none of those issues poll anywhere near 50 percent approval. And no Democratic candidate would expect to beat Trump as the emissary of such an agenda.

VDH is partially wrong. The reason they aren’t introducing those bills is that they don’t really want any of that stuff. In 2007 I was too naive to see the answer right in front of my nose. I still believed that the Democrats were the good guys and that they cared about those issues.

The Democrat elites do no care about anything but themselves. Neither do the GOP elites. Their loyalties are ranked like this:

1. Themselves
2. Their families.
3. Their crime family (Clinton, Bush, Obama, etc.)
4. The Elite Mafia aka “The Global Oligarchy.”

They feel no real loyalty to America. They don’t even like Americans. Do you think that Hillary Clinton really gives a rat’s ass about women? Do you think Elijah Cummings really gives a fuck about black people or Baltimore? There are more than a few Congresscritters who would prefer to remain in Washington DC full time and never even visit their districts. (Having to go home to campaign for reelection is bad enough, but holding regular townhalls and being expected to sit there and listen to constituents’ mundane gripes and act like you care is just beyond the pale.)

If you solve problems you won’t have anything to campaign on next time. Or, even worse, if your solution didn’t work you will get blamed. But gridlock is great. Nothing gets done, and both sides blame the other. And you get to keep running on the same issues over and over and over.

Like abortion. Roe v. Wade was handed down from SCOTUS in 1973. The law hasn’t changed much since then, but it’s been a big issue in every election since 1974. It is a litmus test for both parties and dominates every discussion of feminism. There is a whole industry devoted to defending legal abortion, and another one devoted to opposing it. If the issue went away, all those people would be thrown out of work. If all the Pro-Life groups folded their tents and went home, NARAL would have no reason to exist. Republicans have talked about getting rid of abortion for nearly 50 years, but always seem to come up just a little short. Then they vote to fund Planned Parenthood.

When SCOTUS ruled on Obergefell v. Hodges and legalized gay marriage in all 57 states is caused havoc among LGBT advocacy groups. People stopped donating money to those groups thinking that the battle was over. Democrats had to scramble for some new cause to keep the gays and lesbians in their coalition. The GOP/religious right didn’t even put up much of a fuss, robbing Democrats of the fear factor. Tranny rights is like a movie sequel where all the big stars were replaced with nobodies.

Back in 2007 two of the favorites of the Progs were Russ Feingold and Dennis Kucinich. One was a Senator, the other a member of the House. Both were from the Midwest. What I recall most about those guys was their ability to give stirring speeches in losing causes. But when push came to shove and every vote counted, they folded. On the other side was John McCain. He talked like a conservative but voted like a Democrat when it really mattered.

While the elites kept us distracted with neverending battles on abortion and gun control, the gulf between us and them continued to grow. While they bash some guy living in a trailer park for his white privilege, the elites live in gated communities where almost all the “People of Color” are employees, not homeowners.

Then Trump happened, and now the elites are really pissed.

    Then this happened. Every now and then I have to watch Brandon’s video (of course, share it a lot) to explain the journey. Most of us got there in 2008, but in his earlier interviews Brandon admitted to crying after Hillary lost and truly believed Trump would be the undoing of our country. Then he woke up……

  2. helenk3 says:

    waking up is hard to do. Rethinking your beliefs of many years and finding you were wrong hurts.I became a democrat due to JFK. I was 21 my first vote and he really made us believe we could change the world for the better. He had his faults that were not made public, but to this day I believe he loved this country. I am not sure we have had a president like that until Trump. And for a late to the party Trump person that shocks even me.

    One of the things that JFK did not want to do was get involved in Viet Nam. I believe that is one of the reasons he was killed. My husband always believed that Johnson had something to do with that.

    We have too many pols that have stayed too long at the fair and made too much money and got used to the life style to step down. We have to have a clean sweep in the next election and then have term limits so this mess does not happen again

    Just my opinion

    • taw46 says:

      For me, finding out in 2007/2008 that I was wrong about the Dems didn’t hurt. The opposite, it pissed me off that I didn’t see it sooner.

    • michelina says:

      helen, have you seen the recent documentary regarding the truth about JFK, the fatal shot was from his own secret service guy, it was an accident. the back of JFK’S HEAD was the kill shot, the ss guy stationed behind him panicked and the gun went off. In my hometown I believe the station was reelz on Direct TV, I don’t know what it would be for your town, The attempted assasination was real. but he didn’t kill JFK————-how were they going to tell the public the secret service did it accidentally, hence the cover up
      very interesting to see what they came up with

      • michelina says:

        should of landed under Helen’s comment

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think ballistics already proved the bullets came from Lee Harvey Oswald’s rifle. This is a new one for me and I’ve been following JFK conspiracy theories for ….. decades 😀 I also have Clint Hill’s book in my reading pile, I may have to move it higher on my stack. Hill was the USSS guy who crawled over the car to protect Jackie. He protected Presidents from Eisenhower to Ford.

    All true, myiq, shame so many people still fall for it. On both sides.

      I almost feel sorry for Bill…I said I almost. Then again, there are no accidents, they belong together because they deserve each other.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I was a Bill fan and never wanted Hillary to run for anything. I was right, she destroyed what was left of his legacy. I guess the woman scorned thing is true, he sucked the joy out of her.

        • michelina says:

          I don’t believe that for a second, read what her help/security said about her. she ALWAYS sucked she got better at hiding it, she sold her soul to the devil, no one forced her, it was her choice, people don’t change in their sixties, just become more schrewd, I will never forget or forgive her—————bill is an ass, but she sucks the joy out, not him

      • Anthony says:

        You just KNOW that she’s sitting at that replica of the Resolute Desk in her basement every single night, swilling a couple of boxes of wine and muttering angrily

        • Angie says:

          Boxes of wine 😂😂😂 (personally I always picture her as a gin drinker)

          • DeniseVB says:

            It would explain her collapse at that 9-11 memorial (“tossed in her van like a bag of meat”), gin is an awful dehydrator, so I’ve heard 😉 Her peeps called in pneumonia. Heh.

    “One critical period in Atkinson’s resume, however, has been overlooked—probably intentionally—by his boosters in the media: His work as a top deputy in the Justice Department in 2016 and 2017 during the very same time that the DOJ was investigating Trump campaign aides and, after the election, incoming administration officials. Atkinson worked directly for two figures involved in both the counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign and the set-up of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.”

      The revelations about Trump’s phone conversation with Australia come amid ongoing controversy over a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during which Trump encouraged him to investigate 2016 election interference and unsubstantiated allegations about former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

      “. . . unsubstantiated allegations about former Vice President Joe Biden. . .”

      Why would someone investigate unsubstantiated allegations?

      To see if they can be substantiated! That is what investigations are for – to gather facts and evidence. The Steele Dossier was a collection of unsubstantiated allegations. Robert Mueller spent a couple years and over $20 million investigating and was unable to substantiate ANYTHING.

      Why is it that allegations about Biden are “unsubstantiated allegations” but allegations against Trump are treated as incontrovertible facts?

    Trump should play this as his entry music at all of his campaign rallies:

      • lateblum says:

        Maybe I’ve been watching too much tv, but it seems like having more than one FAKE passport is not uncommon for CIA “folks” as bronco liked to call people. Have I said lately how much I loathed him? Still do.

      That became apparent quite awhile ago. Goes even beyond criminality. Remember when they were going after Trump’s health. Killary could not stop coughing and was thrown in a van, but Donald had health issues.

      Now that the left sees he was serious about finding out how the Russian hoax got started, they are dismissing it as Trump’s ‘conspiracy theory’. And trying to discredit Barr, so no one will believe what he finds. And the other night I saw a progressive PAC on twitter telling the haters that they could impeach Trump and Pence at the same time. The insanity never ends.

  20. Dora says:

    Say it ain’t so!

  21. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Trump was aware of credible allegations again the Bidens. But they were just allegations. He has three options:

    1. Ask Ukraine to investigate.
    2. Tell Barr to investigate
    3. Give the Bidens a pass.

    1&2 are presumptively impeachable offenses according to the Democrats. But if Trump went with #3 and Biden won the nomination but lost in the general, Democrats would say that Trump covered up Biden’s corruption so he would win the nomination. They would call that an impeachable offense too.

  22. DeniseVB says:

    Good Morning Mr. President ! He just posted this a few minutes ago, LOL.

    If you’ve heard about the Zantac recall this morning –
    The bigger problem is not that a batch of Zantac is contaminated with the NDMA carcinogen, the real problem is that the active ingredient in Zantac creates NDMA in the body.
