Why are the Democrats today such a confused bunch of animals?

There are no Jordan Petersons, Ben Shapiros, or even Charlie Kirks on the left. There isn’t a single left wing commentator that would be willing to have a fair televised debate on any of the lefts issues because anytime it’s happened, the leftist gets embarassed and destroyed (e.g - Sally Kohn vs Shapiro).

The left is losing because their ideas don’t stand up to fact based debate. Race cards, and ad Homs are not a replacement for logic and facts. Identity politics has been stretched so thin that it’s losing its effect. Once it’s gone, the left will have nothing left in its arsenal.

Of course - two things are now about to happen:

1) a recount will be demanded... and

2) Russian interference will somehow be blamed.

Democrats, however, remain a mystery. We watch them hesitate at crucial moments, betray the movements that support them, and even try to suppress the leaders and ideas that generate any kind of populist electricity. Not only do they seem uninterested in doing their duty toward the middle class, but sometimes we suspect they don’t even want to win.


Call me paranoid, but I do suspect that the Democratic Party has been co-opted by billionaires who, in exchange for unlimited funding, want only a few simple things:

1. Absolutely no mention by Democrats of how the working class has been screwed over by the export of jobs to China and the import of illegals, who drive down wages
2. Continuous division of voters by various markers of identity to prevent any unified challenge to the oligarchs
3. Continuous blame of white people, especially the poorest, for "racism" as a way to justify harming them

To be fair, Obama wasn't a loser...nobody that can manage to become the president of the USA could realistically be called a loser...Obama is an amazing conman...He showed up at exactly the right time to take advantage of white folks virtue signaling and imaginary white guilt. He also took advantage of the resentment that minorities have towards the white man and gave them an opportunity to send them a big FUCK YOU by voting for a black man.

Patrick you just described the core Democrat platform. Every significant issue is economic, yet they focus entirely on social issues and whether or not someone said something mean or “racist.” All the while they attempt to divide Americans of different backgrounds and colors, divide us by our education level, and even divide us by our gender! All this division is good only for one group: the oligarchs who own both parties. That’s slowly changing for the GOP, but it’s a work in progress.

After Donald Trump's Walk of Fame star was destroyed, dozens of new Trump stars appear on Hollywood Blvd.

A conservative street artist allegedly laminated the vinyl stars on blank squares on the Walk of Fame because of West Hollywood City Council’s recent unanimous vote that recommended the removal of Trump’s star because of the accusations of his mistreatment of women.


The artist, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Hollywood Reporter, “Rip up the president’s Walk of Fame star or try to have it removed — like you’re the mayor of West Hollywood or something — and 30 more will pop up.”

They spent $1,000 on the stars, which were printed on sheets of floor vinyl with adhesive backing. They kept the stars covered until all of the copies were in place so as not to raise suspicion.

“I didn’t want to get hit over the head from behind. We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I’m pretty sure it’s real,” the artist said.

Socialist star Ocasio-Cortez strikes out: All endorsed candidates lose Tuesday primaries.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf.

Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 50.1 percent to 34.6 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.

Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 20.1 percent of the vote.

Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 62.3 percent to 30.2 percent, the Times results show.

This will make all brainwashed leftists' minds explode. They have been told that anyone who was at that rally, and not trying to attack the 1st amendment of the legal rally goers, must be a KKK Nazi white word salad hate-filled monster.

The radical Left has taken over universities, and since they are intolerant of other viewpoints, they hire only professed Leftists whenever possible. Sometimes a moderate sneaks in if they are a minority or something, but it’s rare and they don’t advertise it. Nope, if you’re anything but a Leftist and you’re in higher ed, you’d better stay off social media and/or never post or comment on anything political. And you have to attend 1947373 diversity seminars taught by feminists who sweat man repellent.

Hillary is far from a socialist but to win she takes on whatever mantle at the moment to try to win.


You mean sort of like Trump ? When he said he would fix health care, and create a lot of high paying jobs, save big coal etc., and lower the deficit ?


Trump has been saying a lot of the same things for the last 20-30 years with our trade and economy. Hillary on the other hand has flipped on almost every issue over the same amount of time. She is probably one of the most fair weather candidates I have ever seen.

I wholeheartedly agree that going after the employers could be effective. However, the government should be consistent and thorough. As it is now, enormous numbers of employers in certain businesses hire illegals, but enforcement is so spotty that it isn't a deterrent. Please check out "Gresham's law" on wikipedia or elsewhere.

Instead, I fear, these kind of raids are being used as a political weapon. The government can target and punish certain people or companies that don't toe the "correct" political line or don't given enough "donations" to the right politicians.

This is just like Manafort's current predicament. He, like nearly all "operatives" in his field, has broken numerous laws for decades. It would be great if thousands of people like him landed in jail, but the reality is that thousands get a free pass and only he is being targeted merely because he worked briefly on the Trump campaign.

The raids come as President Donald Trump’s administration has been carrying out high-profile immigration enforcement actions against employers.

Nailing employers of illegals would be more effective than the wall at halting illegal immigration.

The American workers in the middle have seen their wages remain stagnant as necessities like health care become unaffordable.


And right there you have the reason for the election of Donald Trump.

People are suffering, and the left is falsely calling them racist and demanding that they die. (Looking at you, NY Times)

Historians will be aghast that Obama, whose victory was as much due to being pissed off at banks as anything else, did nothing.

And no, it doesn't depend on having the Senate or House. The DOJ is directly under the President and Congress cannot stop investigations and prosecutions.

Patrick says
I still like the Bay Area, but I don't love it anymore. I'm tired of the (literal) shit and masses of homeless, and the high income and sales taxes in California, not to mention the high rents and house prices. On the flip side, there are a lot of jobs, the salaries are good, and there is a huge and thriving tech community. It's Hollywood for programmers, but then Hollywood itself has shit on the sidewalks.


I'm going to agree with you here Patrick as being here in the Bay Area is wearing on me big lately. Here's my list of things that irritate me about this place:

1) Too many people that going anywhere on the weekend and not leaving to get there at 6am becomes a total shit show.

2) Homeless everywhere and they're aggressive.

3) Everyone has their hand out and is always crying poor. School board wants a new parcel tax, RM3 for increased bridge tolls, Bart will inevitably raise fares to match bridge tolls as well. Preschool raising rates, daycare raising rates. Everything keeps going up up up

4) Commuting sucks. Bart is a horrible commute full of homeless, panhandlers, mentally ill and criminals. Bart PD is supposed to ride trains as part of their daily shift but apparently they don't have enough staff to do that (see #3 above) so the only time you see Bart PD is when they're actively looking for someone. There is absolutely no deterrent to committing crime on Bart. The climate is so bad that patrons attempting to enforce the rules on their own ( ie no eating, drinking, smoking on the trains) are immediately shamed and skewered on social media and news networks by apologists. It really feels like a lawless free for all on Bart. Try to drive and expect to spend a quarter of your waking hours in your car getting to and from work.

5) People here are generally stuck up pieces of shit and very elitist like it's some special achievement in life to live here in the BA.

6) Everything revolves around tech, everything. Go to a gathering and people talking about startups, apps etc. It's like every social gathering becomes a venue to try to market themselves or their ideas. Try to talk about normal guy things and the beta male crowd completely shuts down.

7) Political climate is appalling....Sanctuary cities? Come on, that's absurd to put the welfare of illegal immigrants above the tax paying residents.

8) House prices are ridiculous. Markets are full of high paying tech folks, trust fund babies, deep pockets of mom and dad, wealthy foreigners and investors. Don't fall into one of those groups? Good luck getting a house for your family that isn't a 2 hr plus commute from a job center.

Anyone care to add to the list? I'm sure we can come up with a million reasons why the BA is getting old.

Hmmm, something not quite right about this story.



The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
