The Morning Report - 2/24/20

debsdavs.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and the big story is of course Bernie Sanders winning the Nevada Caucuses and by a comfortable margin. It's still the opening round of the battle for the Democrat nomination and anything's possible, but the momentum for now is with an aging, Communist bull. After taking, theoretically, Iowa an New Hampshire, it's on to South Carolina next week and then the massive 14-state Super Tuesday on March 3rd. The Democrat-Media Complex is now in a full-blown panic since, in its estimation, Sanders would not only be crushed by Trump in the general election, but his openly radical, Communist/Socialist agenda - as opposed to the stealth variety pimped by the Democrats for nearly 100 years - will only help struggling Republican candidates, particularly in close Senate races, taint their opponents and ride in on Trump's coattails.

A few observations: first, Little Big Gulp Mike Bloomberg has spent well over a $250 million in his effort to be the Democrats' putative "moderate" white knight surefire Trump-slayer and has come up with bupkiss. By the time it's all over, that figure might well go north of half billion. We'll see if all that money can buy a nomination, or in the case of the Democrats, help them steal it for him. That leads me to my next point, which is the imminent cleaving in half of the Democrat Party. The seeds of this dissolution were planted decades ago in our classrooms, lecture halls, and even our daycare facilities. The old guard Democrat Party, and that includes Barack Obama, traditionally have taken an incremental approach to overthrowing the nation as founded. Certain crises like the 1929 and 2008 crashes notwithstanding which they never let "go to waste" in pushing the New Deal and "Hope and Change."

Now, their chickens are coming home to roost. Two or more generations lobotomized into hating the country and everything it stands for see Trump and his phenomenal success as a complete abnegation of everything they believe in, and the Democrat Establishment as either failures or sell-outs in their promises of both getting rid of him and delivering the long-promised, yet never-delivered Socialist "paradise on earth."

It's kind of fun to watch people like James Carville, Anderson Cooper and Chris Matthews sound almost - almost - Reaganesque in attacking Bernie Sanders as a crazy Communist who'll do nothing but destroy the Democrat Party. Bloomberg did himself no favors with his performance in last week's Las Vegas debate, except his attack on Communism/Socialism was to the point and dead on target. Make no mistake; in no way are any of the aforementioned imbued with any sense of patriotism or love of the country as founded, for if they did, they wouldn't be liberals/Leftists. But it's delicious to watch them actually attack Bernie Sanders for policies that they themselves have always supported, just never out in the open, or at the very least with a carefully phrased and crafted message to swindle the low information voter into supporting it. Hoisting themselves on their own petards, so to speak.

Yet, while we're reveling in the Democrats ripping each other to pieces, one should never lose sight of the fact that Bernie Sanders might be a farshimmelt alta-kocker but his politics and beliefs are both abhorrent and extremely dangerous if he were to ever gain control of the levers of power. We barely survived Obama's eight-year Reign of Error. The sobering point still remains that even after Bernie, if the DNC cannot steal the nomination from him again, gets beaten by Trump in the general, there are many more just like him. The so-called "moderates" aren't going to jump ship to the GOP; they will either be purged or drop the masks entirely and go hardcore Left.

And there are still millions of young people who are brain dead true believers, and an educational system that is brainwashing millions more right behind them. That is a recipe for disaster, no matter what Trump does in the next five years. G-d help us.
