Don’t Fall For It: Democrats Want You Demoralized And Afraid

Headlines in the Left-leaning establishment media have begun screaming “Democrats Sense

New Optimism for Blunting GOP’s Midterm Gains” as Bloomberg, The New York Times, The Washington Post et al have begun their biannual Election Year campaign to demoralize conservatives.

“Democrats are increasingly optimistic they can limit Republican gains in the House and even keep control of the Senate,” wrote Bloomberg’s Laura Litvan.

According to Ms. Litvan’s analysis:

The House is almost certain to flip to Republican control after the November midterm elections. Democrats now have only a nine-seat advantage, and independent analysts forecast a net gain of as many as two dozen seats or more for the GOP, helped by partisan redistricting in Republican-controlled states.

The Senate, now split 50-50, is increasingly looking like a toss-up, with Democrats’ prospects enhanced by inexperienced GOP candidates in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia and Arizona who’ve underperformed in polls despite Trump’s backing and President Joe Biden’s dismal approval ratings. Wisconsin and Nevada also are battlegrounds.

“We’re still waiting to see if the reversal of Roe v. Wade is enough to help Democrats buck the typical midterm trend,” Nathan Gonzales of the allegedly non-partisan Inside Elections newsletter said. Although the president’s party typically suffers significant losses in midterm elections, “there is some evidence in recent weeks that Democrats are over-performing.”

To the extent that Democrats are “overperforming” in certain Senate elections, notably Georgia and Arizona, it might be because the Senate’s alleged Republican “Leader,” Mitch McConnell has been pulling advertising and other support and talking down MAGA candidates like Blake Masters in Arizona and Herschel Walker in Georgia.

McConnell’s trashing of MAGA candidates plays into the establishment media narrative that only “centrists” (meaning establishment professional politicians) can win – which is probably true if the national Republican powers that be withhold financial resources and allow them to get outspent 3 or 4 to 1.

For example, in Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock, the first Black senator from Georgia, has been leading in recent polls, with a 4.4% edge in a RealClearPolitics average of recent surveys. He also has vastly out-raised Walker and has $22.2 million left to spend in his campaign coffers at the end of June, while Walker has $6.8 million.

And of course, part of the play in that race is for the media to claim, and McConnell to echo, that Walker can’t win, even though he’s within the margin of error while getting buried in Far Left money from outside the state of Georgia. In a campaign with equal resources Walker would be running away with the race.

And this happens every election cycle observed William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection: Operation Demoralize.

What is it?

“The media swarms and lies. Tells you it’s over, wants you to give up. Happens every single time.”

As Mr. Jacobson pointed out, Melissa Chen described it back in 2020:

“Feeling exhausted & demoralized?

They want you to think you’re all alone, swimming against the tide. You’re not.

That’s the goal – to break your will, to train your attention on the inane and frivolous, to siphon it away from issues of existential gravity, of global import.”

View the early and notoriously inaccurate polling in this context. View the mainstream media analysis in this context. View Biden’s increasing incitement of conflict between Americans in this context. This is Team Obama 101 stuff.

Operation Demoralize will only get worse predicted Mr. Jacobson.

Don’t fall for it.

I have been paying attention to political races since 1960. My observation has shown that when the Republican candidate is within about five points of the Democrat in the polls, he often wins the real poll, the election, by several points. I could be wrong, but my guess is that the Republicans will win both the house and senate, despite the bumbling establishmentarian McConnell and his closest lieutenants. Look for the Republicans to gain five to seven seats in the senate.

Amen. Moderates and RINOs are killing us. Trouble is that they are the ones the GOP tries to saddle us with. It is why conservatives really need a new political party to represent us. I've said it before, but I think the Founders Party of America would be perfect. Check out their website.

Generals Patton and MacArthur along with Senator McCarthy tried to warn us about the threat communism posed. We didn't listen. Now look how screwed up the country is --with the Democrats doing their best to make us a communist banana republic.

"McCarthyism" is a vile, disgusting term. McCarthy was a great patriot and hero.


Why shouldn't we be demoralized and afraid? The GOP folded like a house of cards in a monsoon and totally deserted President Trump. Coronavirus mandates and lockdowns are still in effect. Biden is buying young, upper income voters with his student loan bailouts. A supposed inflation-reduction law will cost us billions while raising taxes--with 87,000 new IRS agents ready to audit every last one of us.

Demoralized? Afraid? These are really the best of times, folks . . . !

Of course whatever these trashy newspapers say, it should not affect us conservatives at all. Any true conservative simply does not read Bloomberg, NY Times, or the Washington Post. We are only hearing about this as this website is bringing it to our attention. Only leftists should be reading these newspapers who simply preach to the choir. Shame on any conservative who is reading them. I certainly don't.

The latest student debt unfairness is a real winner for us. Those of us who got the shaft on the unfairness of the student loan bailout should be motivated to vote this fall. Sure snobbish lefties with worthless degrees will come out and vote because they want the debt bailout. But the…
