Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
You understand why San Fran Nan won’t call the House back in session, right? It’s because she and Chuck Schumer are trying to shame Mitch McConnell into keeping the Senate shut down.
Why? Well, it’s obvious: They want to keep the Senate shut down in order to prevent the confirmation of President Trump’s judicial nominees and other key nominees like John Ratcliffe, who is up to become the Director of National Intelligence.
Luckily, McConnell is having none of it, and called the Senate back into session this week with his main goal to specifically get those nominees moving again. He understands that it is crucial for the nation to get back to some semblance of normalcy as soon as possible in order to avoid a massive economic depression, and that America won’t get back to some semblance of normalcy if its elected leaders are all holed up in their basements like Joe Biden and Chris Cuomo.
But Democrats are different – make no mistake about it. They don’t care about people dying or 30 million Americans having been put out of jobs; all they care about is politics. After all, the Wuhan Virus is killing mainly old people, and old people happen to be mostly Republican voters. Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer see this and their only thought is that man, this could really tilt a few congressional races in November if enough old people die in the right districts.
Those 30 million additional unemployed? To your typical Democrat politician, their only thought is that that is one huge target-rich environment of potential Democrat voters. If they can just keep enough of those 30 million on unemployment until November it could be an electoral gold mine.
Am I being overly cynical here, unfair to your Democrat “friends”? Not really. Take a look at this great graphic I found on Twitter the other day:
Now, the saddest part of this list is that each and every element of it is 100% true. Go ahead – try to convince me otherwise.
What’s more, the list is far from comprehensive. Here are some other items you could add to it:
13. Tried to give more money to Planned Parenthood.
14. Tried to insert language mandating “ballot harvesting”, i.e., voter fraud, into two stimulus bills.
15. Outlawed the use of motor boats to appease climate change alarmists.
16. Shut down beaches despite the knowledge that heat and sunlight kill the virus.
17. Shut down public parks and then went for walks in them.
18. Shut down “unnecessary” travel and then flew the governor of Illinois’ family to a posh resort in Florida.
19. Threatened to arrest people for “crimes” they have made up out of whole cloth.
The list could go on and on: The point is that, while President Trump and his task force have been working 100 hours a week for the last 3 months trying to save lives and deal with this pandemic, the Democrats have been working 100 hours a week doing little but trying to find ways to take political advantage of this tragic situation and extend it out for as long as possible. This is who they are; it is what they do.
We’ve noted this many times, but it deserves noting again: They are only able function in this despicable mode because of the fact that they literally own the nation’s news media. It’s why Pelosi had zero concerns about needlessly delaying two different stimulus bills while millions suffered: Because there was no political price to be paid for doing so.
Hell, people who get all their news from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and CBS didn’t even know she was doing it. With no one in the media working to hold them accountable, Democrat politicians no longer have a social filter. What’s more, they know their core voters have been so brainwashed by these corrupt media outlets that there is nothing they can do, no act so repugnant, to make them vote for anyone else.
You don’t have to believe me – just take a look at this tweet from Harvey Weinstein’s attack dog Democrat lawyer Lisa Bloom:
I believe you, Tara Reade.
You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago.
We know he is "handsy."
You're not asking for $.
You've obviously struggled mightily with this.
I still have to fight Trump, so I will still support Joe.
But I believe you. And I'm sorry https://t.co/eMUBrkkVFE

This is Democrat core voters in a nutshell: They know Biden abused, harassed and raped Tara Reade, but they don’t care. If Biden’s the nominee, they’re voting for him anyway. Because Trump. And maybe science or something.
This is who they are; it is what they do. To them, everything in life is a political calculation. Once you accept that about your Democrat “friends,” everything they say and do makes perfect sense.
That is all.
