• Here’s Where 2020 Stands If You’re a Democratic Strategist

    So to sum up at this point if you’re a Democratic strategist:
     

    — The economy is strong. Wages are up for the first time in a long time, job reports strong, stocks at record highs. Your move: Obama did it via time travel! Backup plan: hope the economy collapses and America falls into a major recession putting millions on the streets to own Trump.

    — All your efforts to defame/oust Trump have failed: Russiagate, Stormy Daniels, pee tape, obstruction, emoluments, get the taxes, SDNY, etc. You are down to hoping a convicted pedophile saves you with dirt on Trump.

    — New Hope: Robert Mueller breaks out in Tourette’s Syndrome at his hearing next week and demands impeachment.

    — Strategy of last three years to promote new hysterical end-of-democracy meme each week appears not to be working.

    — The media is presenting AOC as the new face of your party, shouting that Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are racists (Did Barack know?!?) She daily sounds more like an undergraduate who is so sure she knows more than the professor based on a long talk over a joint with her boyfriend about Marxism.

    — A large number of Americans have concerns about immigration but your platform is to ignore them and demand open borders, abolish ICE, and free medical care for illegals.

    — Trump keeps refusing to start a new war (China, Venezuela, Iran, NKorea…)

    — Your candidates imagine a statistically tiny number of people on Twitter represent public opinion, semi-anonymously “liking” some bumper-sticker statement. The results in 2020 will thus surprise them, as the results of 2016 did, and the Russians will be much harder to blame the second time.

    — Bernie Sanders is campaigning from a park bench while feeding pigeons, Cory Booker is running for vice president of Crazytown while Twitter debates Kamala Harris’ blackness and school busing from the 1970s. Biden is polling slightly behind a crash test dummy with “Not Trump” written on it in Sharpie. Still ahead of the Other Guy from Wham!

    — Most Dem strategists still not sure if they should delete Hillary’s number.

    — The women’s soccer team vote is locked up, so some good news.

      To sum up if you are a GOP strategist, pay no attention to little things like this:

      Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday issued a warning Friday that the US government is at risk of running out of cash sooner than expected.

      In a letter to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mnuchin wrote that the US might default on its obligations as soon as early September, before Congress returns from its summer recess.

      “Based on updated projections, there is a scenario in which we run of out cash in early September, before Congress reconvenes,” Mnuchin wrote in a letter.

      The federal government has not been able to borrow money since March, when congressionally-mandated borrowing limits went back into force. The US Treasury, which is facing a growing deficit thanks in part to President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax cuts, had said it had enough cash to last until the fall.

      The Fall is coming.

      The mainstream Democratic Party is now so thoroughly hated that nominal independent Bernie Sanders has lost 2/3rds of his supporters mostly because he endorsed Hillary and then campaigned for her hoping the party wouldn’t obstruct his candidacy this time around. Instead, the party is obstructing him anyway and he’s dead in the water. What a sad end to a career for one of the very few decent politicians left in America.

      Karl Kolchak: I wonder if Sanders’s plan for decades hasn’t been to stay an admired contender. He can say he was robbed of his chance at the big title fight. His legacy will be as a beloved American Contender and revered by tens of millions in the holy role of denied savior of the American empire.

      PVB. Your theory that Sanders may feel the Democrats owe him a shot like Hillary felt she was owed one in 2016 after Barack jumped the line in 2008 is intriguing. I have no idea who will end up with the chance to run against Trump. If Trump wins a second term- so be it. None of this is sustainable but again I have no idea what is to follow-I’ll just try to adjust to the new social and economic nastiness which will be the same regardless of which party is in control. That’s my theory and is the best explanation I can muster for my recent and current non participation.

      Vote for the Trump Peace Party

      Democrats and a few Republicans approved 251 to 170 an amendment to the fiscal 2020 National Defense Authorization Act by Reps. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) that would bar funding to use military force against Iran unless Congress authorizes it. Trump the Peace Presidunce was against it.

      Is stupidity a GOP strategy?

      “So, when people write that the president has racist motives here, it’s just, look at the reality at who’s actually serving in Donald Trump’s Cabinet,” Short told Fox News’ Dagen McDowell. Chao, he pointed out, didn’t speak English when she came to the U.S. and became a naturalized citizen. She’s married to Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.”

      God forbid a woman-Warren- or really God forbid a black woman- Harris-or a gay man becomes the next president, will the Trumpists complain so much that they take Trumps advice and go back to where their ancestors were kicked out for being undesirables?
