The ProgDem Anti-Trump Drumbeat Sounds Like the Beat for Its Own Progressive March to Oblivion and the Latest Polls Prove It
THE REAL NEWS AS WE START A NEW WEEK IS THAT AMERICA LIKES THE TRUMP AGENDA. And, it is no surprise that we never hear from the mainstream news about the polls that show it. • • • ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Ever since the Justice Department declared that it would enforce immigration law with a “zero tolerance” policy, the mainstream Progressive media has been hysterically calling President Trump, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Department of Homeland Security officials heartless, cruel, and worse. The worst examples of Fake news have spread, with misleading photos of illegal alien children in tears, civil unrest from protesters, and calls for the abolition of ICE being made by ProgDem lawmakers and candidates. • We understand the ProgDem tactic -- attack President Trump’s number one campaign promise, the issue that propelled him to victory in 2016. BUT, the ProgDem tactic is turning against them. A June 19-20 poll by Rasmussen found that voters do not blame President Trump for the separation of adults from children that occurs during the adult’s legal proceedings after they are caught crossing the border illegally -- 54% of likely voters “say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law.” That number jumps to 82% among Republicans and 56% among voters not affiliated with either major political party. Only 35% of likely voters “believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law.” The same Rasmussen poll found that “voters are strongly critical of Mexico’s efforts to keep illegal drugs and illegal immigrants out of the United States, and just over 50% agree with the President that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a good weapon to use to make our southern neighbor clean up its act.” • The Democrat attempt to call the separation of families “crisis” at the border “Trump’s Katrina” is a massive PR failure. As news reports were found to be fabricated, and after Trump signed an executive order that required families to stay together in detention facilities during legal proceedings, the Democrats were left with little to do but call for violence against Trump administration officials and advocate for policies such as the abolition of ICE. As the Democrat Party continues to move to the left, more analysts are wondering what their strategy is, with more and more independents (Trump voters) being turned off by Democratic candidates in swing areas ahead of midterms. • • • EUROPEAN ELITES DON'T LIKE TRUMP'S ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION STANCE. Are we surprised. The EU leadership moved far to the left in opening borders in 2015 to what it described as Syrian refugees. The resulting wave of illegal economic immigrants from all over the Middle East and Africa swamped Europe's ability to cope. EU member state citizens rejected the open border policy, turning to what Europe calls 'right wing' political parties and movements -- these 'right wing' groups are really for the most part national populists who simply want to save their countries' cultures from invasion and collapse. • The Great American Daily last week noted that : "Most modern leaders are too afraid to touch tough, contentious issues. But President Donald Trump is not like most modern leaders. And he just pointed out one thing that everyone has been too afraid to admit. At the NATO summit in Europe, it has shaped up as President Donald Trump versus everybody." The Great Americna Daily said that Trump's continuing announcement that he puts America first came as a shock to Europe because "the United States has been the piggy bank for every NATO country." President Trump also attacked Europe directly for its "mass migration policies. He told the press that he told NATO leaders that they 'better be careful because immigration is taking over Europe.' ” President Trump pointed out that people around the world are waking up to the problem with mass migration, and that he probably won the election in 2016 because of immigration. He also pointed that even outside of the United States voters are voting more and more for candidates who will enact strong immigration policies. • We can cite the election of Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte who won because he promotes strong immigration policies, as well as the governments recently elected or re'elected in Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. In every case, the political leaders who won the elections pledged to stop illegal immigration. AND, in Great Britain, the historic passage of Brexit -- a vote to leave the European Union -- was based almost entirely around uncontrolled immigration policies foisted on Britain by the EU. • In June, Trump tweeted about the problems caused by mass migration in Germany : "The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!" President Trump took a lot of media heat for that tweet, but his point is correct -- both about the German crime increase (that is often hushed up by the government suppressing the news) and about the problems in germany caused by shifting cultures. Violent crime in Germany has been steadily increasing and is credited by non-partisan news sources as being caused by mass migration. General crime is also much higher among European migrants, who largely come from Middle Eastern countries. But, says the Great American Daily : "The biggest point that Trump brought up, which much of the media ignored, is the cultural shift that mass migration causes. European countries have a long-held history of upholding Western culture. The migrants, especially coming from the Middle East, do not share that culture and show no signs of cultural assimilation. Instead of coming to Europe to find a better life, they are looking to come to Europe to change the cultural makeup of the country, and make it more like the Middle East. There are a lot of groups that are put in direct danger from Islamization. Specifically, Jewish citizens in Europe have been put into major danger from Islamic migrants who have a strongly negative view of Jews. With Islamic migrants having twice the children of native Europeans, things could get ugly very quickly if mass migration isn’t stopped." • Europe is now trying to come to terms with the 2015 catastrophe, but it may be too little too late. There are already millions of illegal immigrnast spread among EU member states, and they show very few signs of assimilation or appreciation for their EU hosts. • • • RUSSIA IS NOT A THREAT. That's what Americans say. Epoch Times reported last Thursday that : "Less than 1% of Americans consider the situation with Russia a top problem for the United States, according to a Gallup poll released on July 18. The number of Americans who consider Russia to be the biggest problem facing the country has not surpassed 1% in any of the past seven months, the pollster found. While major news outlets have relentlessly pushed the Russian interference narrative for nearly two years, Americans remain overwhelmingly more concerned about domestic issues, with concerns about immigration and the government topping the list of the biggest problems." • That is another body blow for the ProgDem position that the Russia is ready to pounce and destroy America's electoral suystem through electronic database hacking and interference. As we know, the ProgDem position is not about Russia -- there is plenty of historical evidence even in the archives of the Progressive medai that the Democrat Party and its leaders have for many years favored dialogue and cooperation with Russia and its predecessor Soviet Union. The ProgDems are using the 'Russia card' to try to destroy President Trump and dis-enfranchise the conservatives who support him. Lapdog ProgDem media Fake news reports about Trump's 'collusion' with Russia to win in 2016 have saturated media coverage since the President was elected. To date, No Evidence or indictments have shown that to be true. Rasmussen Reports has tracked Trump’s 2018 approval rating and finds that it matches President Obama's approval rating during his first term. Rasmussen Reports is the pollster that was most accurate in predicting the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. If Rasmussen is right about Trump's approval rating, November 2018 elections could be pretty grim for the Democrat Party. So, we can expect even more ProgDem hysteria as we apporach election day 2018. • • • WHAT ARE ALERICANS WORRIED ABOUT? The Gallup poll shows that more than 20% of Americans consider immigration to be the biggest problem facing the country -- 22% of respondents said “immigration” or “illegal aliens” when asked to name America’s biggest problem. According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans who rated immigration as the top issue in July reached the highest level in the poll’s 17-year history. The previous peak of 19% occurred in April 2006, when Congress was considering a comprehensive immigration bill. The percentage spiked again in the summer of 2014, when large waves of illegal aliens flooded into the United States from Central America, according to Frank Newport, Gallup’s editor in chief. Over the survey’s history, an average of 5% of respondents have said immigration is the No. 1 problem : “When Americans’ naming of immigration as the top problem has exceeded that average by a significant margin, it has reflected real-world events, political attention being paid to the topic, fluctuating salience of other issues, and news coverage.” Newport wrote that Americans’ concern over immigration spiked three times during Trump’s first term, reflecting his focus on the issue : "The President is pushing to build a wall on the southern border and for comprehensive immigration reform. Trump wants to end the visa lottery program, place limits on chain migration, and institute a merit-based system." • In naother blow for ProgDems, both Democrats and Republicans alike were more likely to name immigration as America’s biggest problem in July -- 35% of Republicans named immigration as the biggest problem this month, up from 21% in June. But the problem gained traction among Democrats as 18% of Democrats ranked immigration as their top concern, up from 10% in June. Newport wrote about this : "Republicans have become increasingly likely this year to name immigration as the nation’s top problem, while, until recently, mentions of immigration had remained relatively low among independents and Democrats. Of course, partisan groups almost certainly have differing reasons for viewing immigration as the top problem currently. Republicans are likely thinking of the underlying problem of illegal immigration per se and its impact on the nation’s economy and crime situation, while Democrats may be thinking more about the negative impact of the Trump administration’s policies and actions in cracking down on immigration.” • BUT, with the midterm elections approaching, congressional leadership stances on immigration may play a crucial role. The same day the Gallup poll was released, the House voted on a resolution in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). A total of 34 Democrats and one Republican voted against the resolution. If Americnas tend to mirror political leadership positions on imigration, Democrats are once more in big trouble come November becasue Trump has the biggest Twitter following and TV presence, despite the media bias against him. • To summarize the entire Gallup poll -- the list of the biggest problems is nearly identical among Democrats, Independents, and Republicans. Four of the five top concerns are the same for the three groups : immigration, government, unifying the country, and lack of respect for each other. The economy and moral and ethical decline tied for fifth place among Republicans. Meanwhile, race relations and racism round out the top-five list for Democrats. The government remains the top issue for Democrats, with 27% saying it’s the nation’s biggest problem. • • • BAD POLL NEWS FOR HILLARY. A new Politico/Morning Consult poll released last Wednesday shows that AMericans have some advice for Hillary -- Don't run again. Rumors have been circulating for weeks in the media that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is gearing up for a third run at the White House. But, the survey of 1,991 registered voters conducted last week, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, suggests that 63% believe the 2016 Democratic nominee and 2008 candidate should not seek a rematch with President Donald Trump in 2020, while 25% of respondents said she should run. Voters across most groups reject the idea of another Clinton candidacy -- men and women; liberals, moderates and conservatives; and all income and education levels. A plurality of Democrats also say “no.” Even Clinton’s own voters from 2016 are evenly split -- 43% want her to run and 43% wish she would not. Clinton has support from a few groups. A majority of black voters, 55%, said she should take another stab at the White House, as do 49% who believe women’s issues are the top priority [note that womens' issues didn't even hit the top 5 in the Gallup poll]. • Hillary has fueled the speculation with her recent public appearances in which she criticizes Trump. Earlier this month, Michael Graham at Inside Sources surveyed a divided field of potential Democrats and found no clear front-runner. He noted that Clinton has high name recognition plus the ability to raise money and build a national campaign infrastructure. “When people ask ‘Why would Hillary run?’ the better question is: Why wouldn’t she?” Michael Graham wrote. • Playing on what has become a comic Deplorables mantra of sorts, Donald Trump Jr., begged Clinton this month to run. “PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN,” he tweeted. Remember the 2016 bumper sticker "Run Hillary Run"?? • • • AMERICANS SUPPORT KAVANAUGH. Another piece of evidence showing America's support for President Trump's agenda appears in the Politico/Morning Consult poll. The poll found solid support for Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh, currently a federal appeals court judge, got the support of 40% of voters surveyed in the poll -- with 28% saying he should not be confirmed by the Senate and 32% declining to answer or indicating they did not know enough about him. In addition, the key news favoring Trump is that 48% indicated that the Senators should evaluate Kavanaugh based on whether he is qualified for the post. Only 32% said the vote should be based on where the nominee stands on political and social issues that might come before the Supreme Court. • • • AMERICANS LIKE WHAT THE SUPREME COURT IS DOING NOW. Meanwhile, Trump got more good news from polls -- this tile about the favorability rating of the Supreme Court itself. The Gallup poll also found that 53% of Americans now view the Supreme Court favorably, thus giving the tribunal its highest approval rating in nine years, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. “The latest reading on the nation’s highest court follows several controversial rulings by the court last month at the end of the 2017-2018 term, as well as President Donald Trump’s nomination of conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy,” Gallup noted. While 53% of Americans now approve of the Supreme Court’s performance -- up from 49% in September -- 41% disapprove. Breaking the poll down -- 72% of Republicans, 52% of independents and 38% of Democrats are among those who approve. Republican approval experienced a huge increase from 26% to 72% from September 2016 -- two months prior to Trump’s victory -- through September 2017, several months after Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch, assumed his position on the bench. Gallup noted : “As the Senate prepares to hold confirmation hearings on Kavanaugh, approval of the current Supreme Court is in majority territory for the first time in nearly a decade, a result of an increase in Republicans’ and independents’ positive views....A conservative, Kavanaugh could shift the balance of power on the court if he is confirmed, and the result could be that Democrats and moderate and liberal Americans could become even less positive about the court than they are now,” Gallup added. But, approximately 44% of Americans believe the court’s ideology is about right while only 29% and 21% believe it is too conservative or liberal, respectively. • We remember vividly the campaign promise of then-candidate Trump to appoint Supreme Court justices who would follow in the footsteps of the late Justice Antonin Scalia. This is another Trump campaign promise being fully kept. • • • MY FAVORITE "POLL." I think we should take great pride in the polls showing that Americans support President Trump's winning agenda. But, I have another -- internal -- "poll." When people like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (first in his class at West Point), Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis (a four-star Marine general), chief of staff John Kelly (a four-star Marine general), and national security advisor John Bolton (one of the toughest voices on foreign policy of this generation) support and work for President Trump, it speaks volumes. There is no better poll, no better gauge of the quality of the President's agenda than this. These Americans are the creme of the crop and they choose to stand with President Trump on the battlefiled for America's constitutional survival. • My second internal poll comes from American business and workers. Last Thursday’s Pledge to America’s Workers brought together more than 20 business leaders from a wide range of sectors who signed the pledge to train and to hire hundreds of thousands of new employees. President Trump told the business leaders : "There’s never been a better time to hire and grow in America. We’ve created 3.7 million jobs since the election. In the month of June alone, we grew the workforce by more than 600,000 workers. We’re in the longest positive job growth streak in American history.” • That is another proof of Trump's campaign promises kept -- and Americna business and workers stand with him. The job numbers under President Trump are nothing short of miraculous. US workers (white, black, hispanic, Asian, everyone) know that he is on their side. And, they stand with him. • • • DEAR READERS, put President Trump's monumental efforts to Make America Great Again beside the puny, self-serving and often seditious actions of the ProgDems. Their sanctuary cities, support for open borders, calling Trump's turnaround of the economy "crumbs," and never-ending efforts to make something impeachable out of the Fake news of Trump-Ruissia "collusion" -- these are the actions of a party that doesn not put America first, let alone making it great. • When Maxine Waters supporters burn the American Flag; when non-Democrat-Party socialist Bernie Sanders comes close to winning the Democrat nomination for President; when the winner of that nomination used the State Department as her private pay-for-play scheme; when former President Obama either led or turned a blind eye to the Deep State run by his henchmen illegally spying on candidate and then-President Trump in order to destroy him; when the FBI/DOJ then turned its prosecutorial power over to a special counsel whose history as FBI chief is rife with partisan political decisions -- That is when Ameria says Enough is Enough!! • powerlineblog posted this on July 20 : "Many have been appalled that Democrats like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have come out of the closet as socialists. They are sometimes referred to as the far-left wing of the Democrat Party. But given recent events, one is entitled to wonder whether there is any wing to the Democratic Party other than the far-left. At yesterday’s Los Angeles rally, some demonstrators carried printed signs produced by a group called RefuseFascism.org : Who is RefuseFascism.org? It is a Communist organization, according to Wikipedia : Refuse Fascism was formed by a group of leftists, including the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) after the 2016 election. The RCP has said they issued the call to action which launched the group. So, to recap: 1) Many Democrats, apparently including the party’s most stalwart supporters, are anti-American. 2) A good number of Democrats are socialists; in fact, but for the DNC having its thumb on the scale, a socialist probably would have won the party’s presidential nomination in 2016. 3) It is fair to wonder how many “socialist” Democrats are Communists who haven’t yet come out of the closet. Only two kinds of socialist governments have ever existed, National Socialist (fascist) and International Socialist (Marxist). Has any reporter ever asked a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist which type of socialism he or she embraces? I don’t think so." • What is most shameful about all this is that some Republicans agree with the ProgDems. The #NeverTrumpers and many traditionally conservative media outlets. The Democrats cannot hide who they are, but the agreement of any Republican, even in Name Only, is a disgrace. American Thinker published this alst week : "The Democrats have failed to get at President Trump on the economy and other domestic issues. They tried, talking down President Trump's tax policies, but these policies have gained popularity as people have benefited from them and the economic growth they have encouraged. Outrage at immigration policy and gun rights helps the Democrats shore up some of their base, but it only harms them with voters at large....Everyone knows that Democrats do not lose support when they hang with the Castro brothers or praise Venezuela. Furthermore, they have a history going back to at least the Church Committee of not being supportive of the intelligence community of the US government. Socialism or communism is supported by the most extreme parts of their base, along with undermining US intelligence agencies. However, if the Democrats can sell the Republican base on the idea that President Trump is soft on Putin and not supportive enough of the intelligence agencies, they can once again at least dispirit GOP voters and maybe separate some of them from the Republican Party. So there is a method to the Democrats' feigned outrage, one that involves the views of Republican voters." • What we see from the findings of many polls is that America is not buying the Democrat Party line. It is for us to stay the course -- ignore the ProgDem drumbeat that sounds more and more like the rhythm of their own final march to oblivion.
