Last month, NBC said that President Trump was the winner of the first Democratic debate. Even uber-leftist NBC knew that the Democratic presidential candidates were so wacky that no sane person would ever vote for such lunacy. Now after the second debate, it’s obvious that Trump was again the winner. The second debate could be summarized with the acronym – SOS, Same Old Stuff. Again, the Dems reaffirmed their desire to give free stuff to everyone – free college tuition, free monthly income to everyone, student loan forgiveness, free medical to all, and open borders and citizenship to all illegals. However, the “free stuff” isn’t really free because YOU pay for it. When Dems say that something is free they really mean – they will raise taxes on taxpayers in order to give free stuff to anyone who promises to vote for them. Anywhere else it’s called bribery but politicians write the laws so they make it legal to buy votes with your money. 


AS IN the first debate, the only sane Democrats appear to be Tim Ryan and John Delaney. Both are less crazy than their fellow candidates and both think it’s idiotic and stupid to promise trillions and trillions of dollars in new government give-away programs and even crazier to have complete open borders with endless benefits to all illegals. Sadly, sane candidates are a dying breed in the Democratic Party and both were booed into silence.


IF PRESIDENT Trump was the winner, who was the loser? That would be President Obama. The Democratic candidates pummeled front-runner “Sleepy” Joe Biden and his ties to Obama. They blamed Biden (and Obama) for the Obamacare disaster, for the crisis at the border (which was made worse by Obama) and for deporting hundreds of thousands of illegals. While Obama should be blamed for wrecking healthcare and worsening the border crisis, there’s much more that he and Biden should be blamed for. Following are specific examples: Obama attacked the police and praised criminals (Michael Brown from Ferguson, Missouri); turned race relations back 60 years by making everything racial (the media and Dems learned well and continue making everything racial); destroyed the sanctity of marriage; attempted to turn the military into a social experiment (women in combat arms); weaponized the IRS to go after political opponents; wasted billions of dollars on the climate change hoax; selectively enforced some immigration laws while ignoring others; greatly empowered the radical Iranian clerics by giving them billions of dollars which they use to fund terrorism; allowed men into women’s bathrooms; and corrupted the DOJ, the FBI, and the intelligence community by turning them into the KGB to spy on candidate Trump in an attempt to prevent his election victory.


THE REASON that President Obama was never criticized for his “destroy America” agenda is because he’s half black. If you criticized Obama, the Dems and the media (I repeat myself) labeled you a racist. And the cowardly Republicans, who stupidly try to curry favor with the media, stood by and watched, saying nothing, while Obama did all he could to destroy America. Now, the 2020 Democratic candidates are trying to destroy “Sleepy” Joe but to do so they must destroy Obama’s legacy. Very ironic that Republicans and conservatives were called racist for criticizing Obama yet the Democratic candidates aren’t racist when they criticize Obama. Certainly makes the “racist” accusation meaningless when the exact same words spoken by conservatives are racist but not when spoken by Dems. (This is further proof of Undeniable Truth #2 – Liberals (and Democrats) are Hypocrites.)


IN THE two nights of the Democratic debates not one of the 20 candidates was the least bit inspiring. Everything they said about America was negative. How do any of the candidates expect to become president when their entire message is one of finding fault with and criticizing the United States, of criticizing the people, and criticizing the very existence of the country? Why would anyone vote for someone who hates the country the way all the Dems appear to hate the country? The theme of their campaigns seems to be, “America is racist, so vote for me.” It really is a bizarre strategy that might work among the loony fringe of liberals, leftists and illegals. But I can’t imagine a majority of the country buying into such a negative, anti-America message.


ANOTHER EXAMPLE of Undeniable Truth #2 occurred last week between President Trump and Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD). The back story: For months Cummings has been railing against the Border Patrol claiming they’re racists, they put children in cages, and screamed at the head of the Border Patrol. Tired of the bogus accusations, President Trump tweeted, “Rep Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of the Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA…” Trump followed with another tweet, “As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cummings District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place”                   


EVERYTHING THAT President Trump said about Cummings’ and his district is 100% accurate - Cummings screamed at the Border Patrol, his district is dangerous, and his district is filthy and rat-infested. However, to libs and Dems, facts don’t matter. President Trump was quickly labeled a racist solely because Cummings is black. As it turns out, 20 years ago Cummings himself said the exact same thing about Baltimore, the mayor of Baltimore has said the same thing, and Baltimore newspapers have written the same. Yet President Trump is called racist. Can you say hypocrites?


WEEKLY THOUGHT: The Left claims it’s racist to hold black politicians accountable. Actually, it’s racist to not.
