Democrats

Al Franken and Saturday Night Liberalism

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Republicans can only hope that this "comic" culture spreads among Democrats. It guarantees that they become more and more the party of a smug coastal elite, too busy laughing at its own jokes and crying at its own imaginary traumas, to notice its estrangement from much of the country. Al Franken once said that Chevy Chase is no longer “in on the joke that he is a joke.” The same could be said for a party so terrorized by Trump that it turns to humorless comics for leadership.

Democrats May Be On The Verge Of Becoming A ‘Permanent Minority’ Party

Stewart Lawrence, Daily Caller

Democrats have a 3-1 lead over the GOP in California, New York and Massachusetts and a 3-1 lead over Republicans in the Pacific Northwest and the Mid-Atlantic (also known as the “Acela Corridor”). However, those regions account for less than 20% of the total numbers of House members. By contrast, if you focus on the American South, the Heartland, and the Southwest — about 80% of the country — the GOP leads Democrats by more than 2-1.

Grassroots rage and the Democrats' crackup

Salena Zito, New York Post

Liberals still believe they’re the side with the most power and influence because of their cultural dominance. The arts and entertainment world confirms their prejudices daily. The real world, however, does not. And so their expectations of what their congressional leadership is capable of don’t mesh with the reality that Schumer faces day in and day out.

Democrats Turn The Clock Back To 1860

“There is no mistaking the fact that there is a concerted plan on foot among the enemies of the Republican Party, to bring it and the President elect into the disgraceful attitude of disowning the principles and policy to which they stood pledged before the country prior to the election. To accomplish this object, the most unpatriotic means are resorted to.”

CNN’s Fake News Denying Illegal Voting

If CNN and the rest of the establishment media chose to investigate and report on research that has been done by the Public Interest Law Foundation, and evidence presented in various voting-related lawsuits, President Trump’s claims would not be disputed.
