Last week Philly DA Seth Williams was charged with 23 counts of bribery, extortion and wire fraud. A Jaguar, a new roof, a custom sofa, a trip to Punta Cana and defrauding his mother’s nursing home of $20 K are a few of his problems. This Democrat makes 175 K but has not stepped down because he is broke and he still remains in charge of enforcing the law. He will soon be joining Philly congressman Chaka (con) Fattah, Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane, and State treasurer Rob McCord in the donkey wing of the penitentiary.
This is what has become of the Democrats on a local level. No one can or will stand up to the most vile and dysfunctional political party most of us have seen in our lifetime. No one seems able to challenge them.
Then we go national and we hear polident Pelosi cackling “Affordable, affordable, affordable affordable….”
We see Maxine Waters in her best James Brown wig rant about impeachment. Chuck Schumer accosts private citizens in public restaurants because they voted for Trump.
This is what has become of the Democrats on a national level. In the real world this would indicate a party that is sick and dying. Still, no one seems able to challenge them.
Check this opening from Daniel Greenfield in today’s FrontPageMagazine…
Forget all the pages of the Democratic Party platform. The only real Democratic platform left is the one sung by Groucho Marx in Horse Feathers. “Whatever it is, I’m against it.”
The elected Democrats still surviving amid the trendy restaurants of Adams Morgan and the boutiques of Dupont Circle are convinced that the voters elected them and that taxpayers are paying them to get nothing done.
Not one thing.
The ordinary leftist wearing a pink hat and clutching a Resistance sign either has no job or a government job. At the pinnacle of this pathetic movement sits the Democratic member of Congress making $174,000 a year, with Nancy Pelosi and Schumer taking home $193,000, and being paid to do nothing.
Around them circulate a vast network of staffers who are also being paid to do nothing constructive.
Taxpayers are on the hook for over $4 mil for the salaries of Senator Feinstein’s staffers. Schumer needed a $3.5 million staff even before he took power. Franken’s posturing requires a mere $2.8 million in staff salaries. It’s certainly a step up from 5 minutes with a comb on Saturday Night Live.
Alcee Hastings, threw a tantrum during the ObamaCare debate. “I don’t have to be nice to nobody,” he ranted. While Hastings was accusing Republicans of abusing poor people, the former impeached judge was carrying out his own charity work by paying his girlfriend $168,411 a year.
Taxpayers are spending a fortune to subsidize a corrupt bunch of clowns who spend all their time trying to bring down the government. The Democrats are not the opposition. Opposition parties oppose, but they also work for the common good. The Democrats only oppose for the sake of opposition. Their likeliest nominees burnish their presidential credentials by voting against everything.
The Democrats are not an opposition party, but an obstructionist party.
The whole tenor of Daniel Greenfield’s piece brings to mind Oliver Cromwell’s speech to the House of Commons, April 20th 1653 dismissing the Rump Parliament. Word for word, it holds true today.
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.
Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.
Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?
Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?
Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed; are yourselves become the greatest grievance?
Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.
I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.
Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God go!”
The nation desperately needs Republicans to put on their big boy pants and advance conservative policies. The Democrats have tremendous advantage in controlling universities, media and pop culture, but conservatives have a distinct advantage in that conservatism works, it delivers as advertised.
We need Republicans to help the President beat these people if we are to stop the decline and demise of the United States. We the People can do this.
The Republican party’s problem has never been when it puts its foot down – It has always been when they pick it up.
