Senate Democrats and the NEA Teachers’ Union are doing their best to prevent school choice advocate Betsy DeVos from becoming Education Secretary. The Chicago Tribune reports that her confirmation hearings have “alternated between interrogation and crass disparagement. DeVos tried to answer loaded policy questions, mostly from Democrats, only to be interrupted by senators whose aim was to discredit her qualifications. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) waved off DeVos after the Tuesday evening hearing, refusing to shake her hand.”
Pardoning drug offenders by the thousand, many of them violent offenders and/or dealers. Commuting the sentence of a convicted traitor who released military secrets directly impinging on national security. Why does Obama do these baffling things? Is it because, as writer Ed Straker believes, “Obama decides everything based on identity politics. He doesn’t look at the nature of the crime; he looks at who he thinks committed it and how virtuous that person’s group is.”?
The New York Times, once a newspaper, has printed a full-page ad from the Revolutionary Communist Party calling (in so many words) for the overthrow of the government: “Our only recourse now is to act together outside normal channels. Every faction within the established power structure must be forced to respond to what we do — creating a situation where the Trump/Pence regime is prevented from ruling.”
Apparently an 18-month election campaign with state primaries, public debates, slow elimination of candidates, op-eds, and ultimately a free and open national election by the American people is HORRIFYING!
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.
After a disastrous weekend for Obama’s immigration, gun control, and FBI policies, punctuated by yet more preventable Islamic terrorist attacks on American soil, the president really needed a distraction. And what better place for the Left to create this than at ground zero in one of the few states to openly – and popularly – resist Obama’s insane transgender bathroom proclamation. So agitprop thugs BLM are at it again, with an insta-mob riot in North Carolina where the Left really needs to get out the vote about a month from now.
