A Gift to the GOP: Democrats Move Toward Leninism Light

The victory of extreme leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York over Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat and someone who many thought would replace Nancy Pelosi, is a huge win for Republicans and President Trump.

Republicans Running Massive Grassroots Operation to Save 2018 Midterms

Well look at this. A little community organizing by Republicans. The GOP would do well to take a page out of Barack Obama’s playbook since Barack Obama WON THE PRESIDENCY TWICE.

Where is the Republican Attack Machine on the Shutdown?

Democrats are always so much better at spinning their nonsense than Republicans are. They whine, attack, and rally the troops every time there’s a big battle to be fought, while Republicans think somehow people will come around to their point of view. And Democrats do it in an organized fashion guided by a well thought out, long-term plan that nevertheless seems spontaneous. Republicans focus solely

Democratic Study: Democrats Need White Voters

Well, they’re moving sharply to the left, after already . . . moving sharply to the left, so that’s bad news for them. From the Washington Examiner: Democrats may be their own worst enemy when it comes to trying to rebuild their party into a more inclusive entity that can take back Congress and the White House, according to a new study.
