The Left Will Make 2019 a Dark Year

https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2019/01/01/the-left-will-make-2019-a-dark-year-n2538310
By Dennis Prager -- I rarely make predictions -- whether of election results or anything else. My policy has always been to say what I believe should be done, not what will be done. I am making an exception with regard to America in 2019. 2019 will be a dark year in America.... Thanks to the left's control of the House of Representatives and the news media, Americans will be kept in a fevered state throughout 2019 -- with innumerable hearings, exposes, criminal investigations and possible indictments of those around the president and the president himself. Truth will not be the point. Defamation will. Anything that might muddy the president, no matter how spurious, no matter how thin the evidence, will be pursued with gusto. The media will drop "bombshell" after "bombshell." If lives and careers are ruined, so much the better; no one should be associating with this president anyway, as far as the left is concerned. The Robert Mueller investigation into alleged "collusion" between the Trump campaign and the Russian government -- which has led to guilty pleas and imprisonment of people around President Trump for offenses having nothing to do with such collusion -- is a preview of what lies ahead.... The goal of the left to weaken, disable and impeach the president is the heart of its mission to undo the 2016 presidential election. If the Republicans had done anything comparable during the Obama administration, the Democrats and the media would not only have charged Republicans with racism -- as they labeled all criticism of Barack Obama -- they would have howled "fascism." And, for once, they wouldn't have been far from the truth. The misuse of government institutions for political ends is indeed a fascist tactic. But because most media serve as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, there will be no protest from the media, only support.
Thanks to Democratic control of the House of Representatives, the left will use the levers of government to keep the American people in a constant state of agitation. The only thing the left hates more than a happy population is losing elections. And it knows the two are linked -- because happy and grateful Americans rarely vote Democrat. The road to Democrat victories lies in convincing women, blacks, Hispanics, Jews and young people to be as unhappy, ungrateful and angry as possible -- in the greatest country ever made.
That is the left's agenda for 2019.

~~~~~~
The only difference between the complete lawlessness ruling the US today and that of Honduras, is the fact that there is far greater wealth to plunder, plus so many people who need to be inculcated and beaten until they either comply with the rule of Progressive Marxist Socialism or die.
All they have to do is join the Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrat locust army... march to America to receive the Obama/Schumer/Pelosi blessings that belong to the citizens and they're free to consume what is on the table and take the tools of productivity away from the Americans.
Obama doubled the debt from $10 to $20 trillion in just 8 years, and Trump has added $2 trillion to it in 2-years! That's peanuts compared to the trillions of dollars in unfunded retirements funds etc. that have absolute zero tangible wealth because there is zero accountability or allegiance left in the US government!. Remember, just a few years ago unfunded liability would be a red flag of bankruptcy!
The debt is essential to Maoist communist China, it's the same place PMS/DSA monopolists moved the US productive wealth generating assets to slave labor wages. China makes the steel, aluminum, copper, and LEAD, we don't anymore. Mao leads the records for slaughtering those who disagree with communism... especially anyone who betrays allegiance... like Schumer, Pelosi et al.
When High Crimes and Misdemeanors are ignored because the Criminals are members of a favored Political Party, we are moving closer and closer to Communism.

That last word should be fascism and the move away from constitutional norms and protections it is what has happened for the last two years under Republican control of Congress.

Let me know when the Democratic House exercises its most IMPORTANT constitutional responsibility: A budget.

LOL ... yes.

This part of the OP was especially funny ...

It was rightwing appointed prosecutors who kept us in a feverish state with innumerable hearings, criminal investigations and indictments of those around the president. But we haven't hit dark times yet?



Um ... thanks for the giggle, OP.

We need something to laugh about facing two more years with the slimiest president ever still in office.



Here's to Pelosi and the Democratic Congress giving us something else to smile about, and possibly a glimmer of hope that we might survive one of our darkest hours -- the Trump presidency.

Funny thing ... I understand when the minority party spews sour grapes.

But we've had Republicans led by Trump spewing sour grapes for the last two years. What's up with "winners" acting so bitter all the time?





Note: In case your math is off today and you can't read a calendar, I'll underscore that the Great Republican Pity Party started well before Democrats retook the House.

If you read that Dennis Prager thing, he's as crazy as the OP but uses better grammar. The poor little things.:2bigcry:

I smile when watching the responses of the left the moments leading up to Trumps victory in 2016. I watch this over and over on You Tube.

The slimiest President was Clinton for sure.

To be fair. Prager's argument was more understandable than Docs. Just goes to show how terrified the right is of Democrats with any power whatsoever. To bad the country is moving in the left's direction and not the asinine attitude on the right.

I bet they call Cohen and Flynn in to talk to them before they do anything about a budget.

Of course you're referring to the "Democrat Majority" Congress resisting the President and attempting to pass legislation taxing Americans to pay for illegal aliens, and furthering Marxist Socialism in America. That's not to mention a concerted effort by the Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrat Left/DSA to impeach Donald J. Trump by hook or crook.....

Ivanka isn't part of Congress. Dismissed.

The Republican House isn't any better at exercising their most important constitutional responsibility. We haven't had a budget since Bush was President. Both Parties would rather not have budgets. Their donors don't want one.

But I thought Ivanka and Trump and his sons were great business people that know how to run companies and would fix the budget? Are you telling me that they lied???????????????????????????

LOL. Yes, let's hope Democrats can do what Republicans failed to do.

There are a whole lot of things we're hoping Democrats can do that Republicans refused to fulfill their obligations to do.

Going to be a challenge, of course. The GOP couldn't even do it with both chambers of Congress and the White House. But you can count on Democrats proceeding with a degree of sanity which we have been missing under GOP rule.

If Congress passed a budget that Trump gave them, you can be sure the budget would be "fixed". But you and I know that's not going to happen.

Congress doesn't want to pass ANY budget.

I agree. Neither Party wants to pass a budget. But that doesn't absolve the Democrats...now that they'll control the House...from taking their responsibilities seriously.

So tell me...what do you think they'll do first? Call Cohen and Flynn in for testimony...or pass a budget?

btw, the GOP never had "both chambers" when it comes to spending bills. You know that, don't you?

Why should he put one on the table? Is there a law that says he should?

Show me the budget the Dem House sends to the Senate. That's what matters.

Even if there was a law that said he should, he wouldn't follow it anyway.
