NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio joins the 2020 primaries

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is running for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election. The NYPD think it’s a bad idea. Patrick J. Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York,issued a statement on Twitter,

After six years of disrespect for the police officers who keep our city safe, it’s perfectly clear how the mayor treats men and women in uniform. As commander-in-chief, he would be an unmitigated disaster

It is laughable that a mayor who has shown no interest in running New York City for six years now says he wants to mismanage the entire country,..

While the mayor of our nation’s largest city is busy running around Iowa and getting upstaged by the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, there are real problems here at home. New York City Police officers are continuing to suffer with wages 30% below market rate because the mayor has totally checked out of our contract process…”

Trump also weighed in saying de Blasio is considered the worst mayor in America.

How can the Democrats honestly think they have the right toolkit to fight 2020? De Blasio would have lost many Americans for his stunt to light up buildings to celebrate the passing of a late term abortion bill. All class.

I think my dog’s a Democrat

Poor old Joe Biden

Joe Biden maybe the front runner for the Democrats in 2020 but the internet trolls are having a wow of a time. Note his creepy t-shirts are being sold under www.joebiden.info and the web address of joebiden.org leads straight to the White House website listing President Trump’s accomplishments. It seems now that election campaigning requires more than just placards and postbox drops. Ouch.

The Untrumpables & the bookkeeper

The NY Times has Donald Trump’s tax returns from 1985-1994. So what? He made losses 25-30 years ago. He obviously made some terrible business decisions to rack up $1.17bn in losses over a decade. Yet the laws allowed him to do so. Two years ago, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hailed she had Trump’s 2005 tax return that showed he paid $38m tax on $150m income. So he has had some good with the bad.

Because the mainstream media and the Democrats couldn’t pin Russia collusion on him, they want to see if they can get him on tax evasion. Sounds like the accountant in the Treasury Department trying to bust Al Capone in The Untouchables. The Democrats want to make Trump talk with a gun in his mouth. Many Democrat-run states have passed legislation to ban Trump from the 2020 ballot if he doesn’t release his tax returns. CM has mentioned numerous times how this typifies the level to which Democrats think they are just in rejecting the democratic rights of their constituents.  Surely American voters can decide for themselves whether his tax returns are an important enough issue for them.

The question really boils down to whether he has “evaded” tax or “avoided” it? If he used the tax laws to minimise his ultimate tax liabilities then all power to him. In the immortal words of Australian billionaire, Kerry Packer, “if anybody in this country doesn’t minimise their tax they want their heads read. Because as a government I can tell you, you’re not spending it that well that we should be donating extra!

Truth be told, banks continued to lend to him despite having the highest tax losses of any American and he wound up in the highest office in the land. Even if his most recent tax returns show massive losses, if he hasn’t broken the law then what will House Democrats have gained?

Put it this way. The mainstream media might wish to point to the failures of Trump as a good reason to question his judgement. They might mock him by saying he benefitted from Daddy’s money. However, America has the lowest unemployment rate in decades, historic low black and female unemployment and 5.8m unemployed to fill 7m job openings. If individuals feel America is in a better place than when he started, one can be sure that he will be sworn in again in 2020.

When will the Democrats finally realise that putting forward sensible policies to convince the American public they are worthy of government is a more effective method than pushing more and more Trump Derangement Syndrome?

Senate Democrat poll backfires

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) claims to be the only organization solely dedicated to electing a Democratic Senate.

Hoping that they’d get an overwhelming response on their own Twitter poll, it seems that 72% want another Supreme Court Justice like Brett Kavanaugh over Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The DSCC has since deleted the poll. At the last count after 230,000 votes Kavanaugh led 71% to 29%.

Ironically the DSCC wrote the following tweet. It seems the people don’t agree.

Scandal-less or Scandalous?

President Obama is often hailed by the left as having a blemish free record. No scandals. Good, clean and wholesome. However a CNN poll has revealed that,

69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.

Should we be surprised that the American people want answers to the Steele dossier? The FISA court approval of the wiretap? Did Obama know? If so, when did he know it? Many are questioning the spying conducted on the Trump 2016 campaign.

How ironic that 2020 hopeful Joe Biden is not asking for an endorsement from Obama, his former bromance partner. Maybe he feels he will be tainted by an investigation which involves his old boss.

Mud-wrestling Mazie Hirono impugns the integrity of the AG

Democratic Party Senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono,  launched a disgraceful Trump Derangement Syndrome laced slander of Attorney General William Barr during a hearing over the Mueller Report. She accused him of lying and demanded he resign. It was bile that maintained the class of questioning that was so evident during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. The Democrats can’t seem to grasp that this 2-year media-led Russia collusion conspiracy has become such a dead horse that Rasmussen has Trump’s monthly approval rating at a two year high.

The best argument put forward by the Democrats was that the 19-page memo requested by Mueller (which was made entirely public) was several weeks late. Barr chose to release it with the entire 448 pages of the report. 

Where was Ms. Hirono when A-G Loretta Lynch happened to meet Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac where they spoke about golf and grandkids immediately before the Clinton email probe? Deathly silent.

When will the Democrats learn that driving for impeachment is wearing thin on the American public? When will they put forward some real policies other than “reject whatever Trump puts forward“? A Rasmussen Reports survey on March 28th revealed that just 31% of all Likely U.S. Voters thought congressional Democrats should do their own investigation even though the Mueller probe has failed to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. 61% said Democrats in Congress should move on to other issues. 

All this hearing has revealed is that Mariko Hirono, Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein and other Democratic senators have shown themselves to be so out of touch. There is no way the Democrats will win 2020 with such pitiful displays of madness. Get over it and start convincing the American people that you are a credible choice otherwise, we will have to endure another 4 years of TDS.
