And In This Corner...

Politics in the nation’s capital these days is like a dirty prize fight.

In this corner, the Democrats, in this corner, the Republicans, hitting below the belt, eye-gouging, rabbit punches, biting, scratching and hitting after the bell will all be allowed, there is no round limit and the result- nobody wins.

I watched the last Democrat debate and learned four things:

1. They all despise President Trump.
2. Socialism is alive and well in the Democratic Party.  
3. They all think the way to the White House is big government and out-promising the other candidates. 
4. They’ve all got their claws out and don’t mind destroying anybody who stands in their way, fellow Democrats be damned.

If members of the same party are going to declare a no holds barred civil war in the primaries what will the general election be like.

We all know how combative Trump is, it seems as if he relishes a good fight and it would appear that this contest will be muddy and bloody with insult, hyperbole, innuendo and downright animus flying in all directions.

Whoever survives the primaries and faces Trump “mano a mano” best be prepared to hold their temper and have a lot more arrows in their quiver than just their rabid hatred of a president who, if things continue the way they are going, will have the best economy and the lowest unemployment numbers in decades to offer up.

Whatever Democrat makes the cut and mounts the debate stage will have to defend the last Democratic president’s remarks that manufacturing jobs were gone forever and that America may as well get used to a reduced lifestyle as the “new norm”.

They have to explain why pointing out the abject failures in Elijah Cummings’ congressional district is racist.

When black and Hispanic unemployment are at an all-time low it’s hard to prove that the president in power is a racist.

The hardest part of the Democratic pipe dreams to defend will be the Green New Deal and if Trump does his fiscal homework, as I’m sure he will, and points out the cost and impossibly of this Alice in Wonderland monstrosity, it could be a sticky wicket indeed.

Now I’m not saying that the Democratic candidate won’t come out swinging, and as we all know, the selection of the people asking the questions has a lot to do with a level playing field, but be that as it will, it’s going to be a long and exhausting night for somebody.

“Cookie” Ocasio-Cortez and the “Odd Squad” are the darlings of the American Media, and bane of semi-sensible Democrats everywhere have done a lot to raise the temperature of politics in both parties and one has to wonder how long Nancy Pelosi can keep the pressure cap screwed down tight enough to prevent the impeachment crowd from storming the gates and seizing control of, if not the gavel, at least the agenda of the House of Representatives.

From what I gathered last night there are as many health care plans as there are candidates and they are all about as transparent as swamp water, (pun intended).

There is a clandestine civil war going on in the Democratic Party as the unabashed socialists and radical young guns, although few in number, loom large on all the major network and cable news outlets and no radio talk show can make it through a broadcast cycle without reporting on their antics, which the Democratic leadership seems at a loss to deal with.

The Republican Party also has its share of rifts and rants, and even a few Never Trumpers who had rather see their party fold than be led by a non-pedigreed renegade who refuses to join the old boy’s club and do things the way they’ve always been done in Washington.

It’s a volatile and combative seventeen months we are getting ready to go through between now and election time.

October surprises will be coming at us months early and in record numbers and, with a biased media we will be forced to separate the grain from the chaff.

We will hear ridiculous accusations, raging and unreasonable anger and enough rumors to cause Lake Pontchartrain to overflow.

We will question the neutrality of some of our government agencies, doubt the honesty of our media, the sincerity - and perhaps even the sanity - of some of our candidates and when it’s over, regardless of how it goes, there will be those who will say it was rigged by loyalists or interfered with by foreign powers.

Whichever side you’re on tighten your cinch strap, make sure both feet are in the stirrups, pull up the keep on your stampede string and get ready for the ride of your life.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie, I hove no worries about who is going to win this election. God put the Donald in the White House and I don't see Him taking him out, I see these democrats like a bunch of kids on the playground telling the other one's that their daddy can beat their daddy in a fight. It is going to be more fun than a barrel of monkeys watching each of them trying to give away more "free" stuff than the other candidate as they sell their fantasy that the "super rich" will pay for it all. The never Trumpers like Romney can suck hind tit, for it is the working man & women who built this country and will keep it as the greatest nation. I could go through and name each candidate and explain each of the weakness, a very long list. The list of their strengths would be knee high to a grasshopper......nuff said God Bless Plowboy

Rigged elections
The ruling class does not want Donald Trump to continue his plan to restore the middle class of this great country and they will stop at nothing to prevent his re-election. No one seems to be talking about the fact that rigged elections has to be next on the long list of attacks against our President. The ruling class has too many ways to "stuff the ballot box" and will use any means to stop the biggest political movement in history. Remember,they only need to flip a few senate seats and hold the house and if DJT wins they will impeach then invent some crap on Pence,run him out and the speaker of the house is next in line. The ruling class is after you and I,our kids,our very way of life I thank God everyday that they have to go thru Mr. Trump to get to us. God bless America ! DeploraBill (good guy with a gun)
