Republicans on the Path to Surrender in 2018 Midterm Elections

It’s way past time to repeal and replace these two!

The Republican Party is already behaving as if it is no longer a governing party, and merely awaits the verdict of the voters in 2018 to seal its fate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) virtually handed control to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in his speech bemoaning Republicans’ latest — and last? — failure to pass any kind of repeal of Obamacare in the wee hours of Friday morning.

“Now, I think it’s appropriate to ask, what are their ideas? It’s time for our friends on the other side to tell us what they have in mind and we’ll see how the American people feel about their ideas,” he said.

It was a stunning abdication of governing responsibility to the minority party.

There is no way Democrats are going to propose any new ideas to “fix” Obamacare in the near future. Instead, they will save their ideas for the 2018 midterm elections, when they will run on the promise to lead the effort to repair what Republicans lacked the courage to repeal. They will tell McConnell what they have in mind for Obamacare — once he is out of power and control the Senate — and perhaps the House as well. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Ben Shapiro Stormed Congress and Blew the Left’s Argument Against Free Speech to Smithereens

Here’s the key — “You don’t actually have to say anything insulting to microaggress. Somebody merely needs to take offense.” – Ben Shapiro

On Thursday, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro testified about free speech on college campuses before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. In less than five minutes, he dissected and destroyed the Left’s argument against free speech.

“Free speech is under assault because of a three-step argument made by advocates and justifiers of violence,” Shapiro declared in his opening remarks. “The first step is they say that the validity or invalidity of an argument can be judged solely by the ethnic, sexual, racial, or cultural identity of the person making the argument.”

This “intersectionality” argument — that society structurally oppresses people of ethnic, sexual, racial, or cultural identities and therefore only those who have been oppressed can speak about certain issues — is the ground of the “microaggression” culture stifling speech on campuses, the Daily Wire editor argued.

“The second step is they claim that those who say otherwise are engaged in what they call verbal violence,” Sharipo added. “The final step is that they conclude that physical violence is sometimes justified in order to stop such verbal abuse.”

In order to understand how college campuses shut down speech — often but not always conservative speech — Americans must understand the philosophy of “intersectionality.” Shapiro argued that this philosophy dominates college campuses and “a large segment of today’s Democratic Party.” Continue reading at pjmedia.com.

A follow-up to yesterday’s post:

Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to President Donald J. Trump, has taken the next major step in the war against the legacy, establishment media: He has now defined the enemy.

 President Trump and White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon—who along with Gorka is a former Breitbart News official—earlier this year identified the media class as the “opposition party.”

That happened in late January, just after the inauguration. Bannon infamously teased the media alongside White House chief of staff Reince Priebus as reporters lined an area of the White House at one point, saying there’s “the opposition party, all lined up.” Read the rest of this article HERE.

Kellyanne Conway Takes Down “Fake News” Chris Cuomo on CNN

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway went head-to-head with Chris Cuomo in a fiery thirty five minute shootout on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday (Note to those politically correct snowflakes lacking a sense of humor or a sense of irony: the words fiery and shootout are used metaphorically) .

At one point in the exchange Conway asked Cuomo: “Aren’t you the least bit reluctant, if not embarrassed that you now talk about Russia more than you talk about America? Doesn’t this bother you?”

In the video clip below Fox News host Tucker Carlson played a montage of excerpts from this interview on his show.

Lessons From Jon Ossoff Loss: Move Left, Forget Civility

Democrats are concluding that Jon Ossoff’s disappointing loss to Karen Handel in the special election for Georgia’s 6th congressional district on Tuesday means they must move even further left, and reject calls for more civility.

That might seem odd, especially in the wake of last week’s shooting attack against Republican members of Congress, and given that Handel won partly by tying Ossoff to the left and to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

But Democrats are convinced that Ossoff fell short by moving towards the center after running as the darling of the “#Resistance” in the primary election in April, and by trying to convince moderate Republicans to cross over.

The Washington Post reports:

Indeed, more than 200 miles to the north, a dramatically underfunded Democrat, Archie Parnell, nearly pulled off an upset victory in a House seat that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee largely ignored. In Ossoff, Democrats hoped they had found a potential new path to defeating Republicans with a message of peace and civility. They calculated that the fiery rage, often associated with supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), would not win over moderate Republicans and centrists, whose support Ossoff needed to have any chance to win a district that Tom Price, the six-term congressman who is Trump’s health secretary, won by more than 20 percentage points in November.

So Ossoff chose the high priest route instead of the fierce warrior. It was civil disobedience rather than civil unrest. And he still lost, by an even wider margin than the almost forgotten Parnell.

The Post quotes Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee: “The best way for Democrats to maximize gains in 2018 – especially in purple and red districts – is to harness the power of the resistance and field candidates who proudly challenge power.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
