Democrats in action

Figured it's time for a topic devoted strictly to Democrats and their tactics.

 

Just as we are invisible to the mullahs at the mosque, we were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate."

Democrats may think the brand is all about diversity, inclusion and fairness. But for millions of Americans, the brand is also about contempt — intellectual contempt of the kind Nimzowitsch exuded for his opponent (grandmaster Fritz Samisch, who, in fairness, was no slouch); moral contempt of the sort Hillary Clinton felt for Trump (never more evident than last year when Hillary Clinton wondered, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?”).

From the article above, on the losing politics of contempt:

It’s intolerable. It’s why so many well-educated Republicans who find nothing to admire in the president’s dyspeptic boorishness find even less to like in his opponents’ snickering censoriousness.

It’s really that simple. Democrats and Liberals… read and reread. Then commit it to memory. Then role up your sleeves and get to work; or be fired. Simple eh?

Seems that the Democrats and some Republicans have found a "common foe".

U.S. Congress strikes deal on sanctions bill, handcuffing Trump on Russia

Proposed legislation also slaps more sanctions on Iran and North Korea

Thomson ReutersPosted: Jul 22, 2017 5:50 PM ET Last Updated: Jul 22, 2017 5:50 PM ET

The reported legislation would put U.S. President Donald Trump in a tough spot. Veto it and he will look to be doing Russia's bidding. or sign it and have his plan for more open diplomacy with Russia take a major hit.

U.S. Republicans and Democrats have reached agreement on legislation that allows new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, leading congressional Democrats said on Saturday, in a bill that would limit any potential effort by President Donald Trump to try to lift sanctions against Moscow.

The Countering Iran's Destabilizing Activities Act, which was passed by the Senate a month ago, was held up in the House of Representatives after Republicans proposed including North Korea sanctions in the bill.

The House is set to vote on Tuesday on a package of bills on sanctions covering Russia, Iran and North Korea, according to House majority leader Kevin McCarthy's office. The measure will "hold them accountable for their dangerous actions," McCarthy said in a statement Saturday.

Under the proposed bill, Trump must submit to Congress a report on proposed actions that would "significantly alter" U.S. foreign policy in connection with Russia, including easing sanctions or returning diplomatic properties in Maryland and New York that former president Barack Obama ordered vacated in December.

Congress would have at least 30 days to hold hearings and then vote to uphold or reject Trump's proposed changes. Many lawmakers hope the bill will send a message to Trump to keep a strong line against Russia.

Trump, who met Putin at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg earlier this month and said it was an "honour" to meet him, has been criticized for seeking to reset U.S.-Russian relations. His administration has been bogged down by ongoing investigations of possible ties between his 2016 campaign and Russia.

Message to Moscow

With the bill, Republicans and Democrats are seeking to punish Russia for its 2014 annexation of Crimea, a peninsula belonging to Ukraine, and for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Putin has denied any meddling in the U.S. democratic process last year. Trump has said that his campaign did not collude with Russia.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Russia's "outrageous and unacceptable" behavior in the 2016 U.S. election and in Europe "demand that we have strong statutory sanctions enacted as soon as possible."

Even so, she expressed concerns that by including North Korea the legislation could face procedural delays in the Senate.

Far-ranging implications

Senior Republican lawmakers did not immediately comment on the latest bill. In Brussels, the European Union sounded an alarm about the U.S. moves to step up sanctions on Russia, urging Washington to coordinate with its G7 partners.

The European Commission, the EU's executive body, warned of possibly "wide and indiscriminate" "unintended consequences," notably on the EU's efforts to diversify energy sources away from Russia.

McCarthy and Ed Royce, chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in a statement the revised bill helps "bolster the energy security of our European allies by maintaining their access to key energy resources outside of Russia."

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said a strong sanctions bill "is essential," and said in a statement that he expects "the House and Senate will act on this legislation promptly, on a broad bipartisan basis."

Senator Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the agreement was reached after "intense negotiations."

"A nearly united Congress is poised to send President Putin a clear message on behalf of the American people and our allies, and we need President Trump to help us deliver that message," he said in a statement.

DEFCON    667

Van Jones of CNN on July 7th following Sarsour's hate speech ...

"We got your back, sister! Everyone knows these people are full of it. Keep on speaking your truth. @lsarsour https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/883326031276507136 "

I've always felt the guy is a couple of bricks short of a full load, a downright dangerous mouthpiece and a pretend intellectual.

Quote of the day....

 

The Democrats have found a magic recipe. If they vote against America every time, all the time, in every way that they possibly can, they'll remain within the confines of their newfound party identity. "

 

http://www.dailywire.com/news/19122/proposal-study-ideological-impulses-jihadists-frank-camp?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_content=062316-news&utm_campaign=benshapiro

 

From the comments section....

 

" Sun Tzu, the author of The Art of War and one of the greatest military strategists in human history, said that to defeat the enemy it is imperative to know him. To think as he does, to understand his motives in such an essence that, as Tzu put it, "become the enemy." Not to say that you actually side with the enemy, that is just the extent to which you should understand him. 
So what i'm getting from this is that American politicians will put aside literally thousands of years of military wisdom to be politically correct for radical Islam. "

It’s too late to stop it, the warnings were simply not heeded. People thought that THEIR liberal ideologies and opinions were shared the world over, they thought (and still think) that everyone thinks as they do. They went para sailing in the Maldives and returned with what they thought was a profound understanding of Islam. “My hairdresser is a Muslim and she’s nice” could be found on every political forum… including this one.

Now, stop wondering where you went wrong, stop thinking about how to avoid it, move on to enhanced monitoring, surveillance and interdiction. Develop cooperative liaisons with other countries, open your wallet wide, sacrifice your personal freedoms and smile your biggest liberal smile while you do it. The time to avert the problem has passed. As you come to know this enemy, you will realize just how vulnerable you are. Islam and secular liberal democracies are fundamentally incompatible.

" Dr. Danusha V. Goska was a lifelong liberal who “could not conceive of ever being anything but a leftist.”

Her fantastic column, “Top Ten Reasons I Am No Longer a Leftist,” details how and why her philosophies changed."

Both sides of the political coin have they merits.  the problem is that the left and the right spend so much time trying to undo whats already been done that they can't truly accomplish anything at all.

What the government needs both in Ottawa and in Washington is a balanced government that be totally non-partisan and truly go back to being for the people by the people.  

You want to know what would make (insert Country here) great again?  Stop being so blood narrow minded and actually evaluate ideas on their merit not who came up with it.
