Frenzy

 

The impeachment ship is foundering in the breakers of the Mueller report. From blaming Trump election despondency for their obsessive reporting to outright denial, the old guard media is at loss to explain how their spin got “unspun” before the eyes of the Nation. The old ships are taking on water.

The frenzy to destroy a man, to be his undoing, has Americans wondering if they are witnessing a psychosis of sorts. To be so prejudiced against an individual that some in the public eye are willing to abandon any and all tethers to reason, is unsettling to the average citizen. Americans have begun to recoil from the crazed who crave destruction.

Maine was left in the best financial position it has been in decades, but here too the frenzy took hold. Focused instead on a Governor who some found offensive in manner and deed, the quest to destroy his accomplishments engaged at full throttle at the inaugural of his replacement. Governor Mills has left no dollar unspent.

Moving at a frenetic pace, the Democrat controlled branches of Maine’s government have managed to spend themselves into the red before the end of the first quarter of the first year of Governor Mills’ first term, surpassing the predictions of even the most cynical prognosticators of doom. Mainers have been barraged by a blunderbuss of tax increase bills leaving the Maine taxpayer feeling fiscally bludgeoned and scurrying to hide their wages in every secret chamber they can find knowing that Governor Tax Mills cometh. With no less than five bills to increase tax on heating oil and fuel, Democrats have served warning that they will tax anything and tax some more to feed their blood-lust to destroy every iota of the accomplishments of the Governor they love to hate.

The Art of Redefinition

 

If only it were a lost art and we had left it there long ago. Its device and scheme is a plague upon our Nation’s soul. So it has followed us from distant shores, infectious and diseased, to raise its ugly bulbous head in a legislative eruption of taxation.

All that you know has been turned on its head if what you define is not inclined to match the needs of the leftist Democrat Party. Like the idea that life is only life if it can by chance escape the womb to be seen in hand by those who have redefined its existence, unless if, of course, you’ re a grublet ooze encased in Martian ice deep in space. Here in Maine, the party of Janet Mills, Chellie Pingree, and Jared Golden have redefined what “no new taxes” means.

It means a blunderbuss barrage of tax increases, new tax legislation, and a quadrupling of the bond burden, not to mention a myriad of new regulatory burdens to stymie business growth. The future is bright, if you think walking down a tunnel straight into a locomotive is bright. It’s all a matter of perspective.

Here are some low-lights to the Democrat’s bulldozer approach to Maine’s economy. A local sales tax to give small business a “no new taxes” punch in the gut. As usual, rural Maine gets hit the worst.

A tax on heating oil, gasoline, propane, diesel, and every other fuel, with jet fuel exempted. That is a relief. Mainers can breath easier knowing our personal jets are tax exempted and our Democrat politicians can jet tax free to global warming summits.

Then we have an income tax increase. Why not? With all these “no new taxes”, Maine’s economy is bracing for a nuclear blast?

Immovable Force

 

The tactics that have been utilized against gun owners have filtered over into every corner of the political realm. The Left is desperate to undo every gain that the voters of the United States have earned in the last two years. Any semblance of ties to the conventions of decency and honesty have been severed and the tactics of Everytown have been fully embraced throughout the media and Democrat Party.

What are Everytown tactics? The most famous or infamous is the gun violence/gun laws poll of Chicago done by Everytown for Gun Safety, toted by President Obama, and still inexplicable held as proof by Democrats that their gun laws reduce gun violence. Everytown started with the gun violence rates of Chicago alone before the implementation of strict gun laws, then factored in the gun violence rates of all of the rural farming communities of Illinois with Chicago’s violence rate, and, surprise, Chicago’s gun violence rate dropped dramatically when mixing in all the farming communities that had a violence by gun rate of zero.

This polling “study” was exposed eventually for fraud and Everytown was even called before Congress to answer for it; but still it is used by Democrats, which exposes the true purpose of polling data by the Left. Liberals no longer gather information to find the pulse and direction of the people. They formulate data to drive the direction and pulse of the people.

In elections past, liberals have used this tactic to depress conservatives from voting. Polling data would always appear showing enthusiasm among conservatives was not strong, the moral compass of the nation shifting, and liberals so enthusiastic. Election after election this tactic was used effectively to discourage the conservative vote

The polls always seemed so accurate because conservatives believed them and allowed themselves to despair of victory. The belief in polling is strengthened only because voters historically allowed themselves to be manipulated by them. In time, polling seemed almost prophetic and candidates whom the polls prophesied against trembled at their doom, at least, until last election.

Donald Trump didn’t give a rat’s hairy hindquarters about polling. He was all business and, what every businessman and politician wish they were, the ultimate showman. He laughed, mocked, scorned, and exposed all of the Left’s tactics.

So when the inevitable polling prophesied his defeat, he called them liars. His supporters fed off his enthusiasm and he, in turn, fed off theirs, and together they defeated the inevitable. But the job is not complete.

Again, the left is using Everytown style polling to try and put voters back in their place. To discourage the enthusiasm to take their government back, the Left will use every lying poll they can and voters must ignore them again, again, and again. Stand resolute to finish the task and support the President who is fighting for you.

It’s not enough to bask in the satisfaction of seeing the Left “get theirs.” Voters need to be the immovable force that stands like a breakwater against all the lies, rioting, threats, and false polling meant to dissuade the voter from going to the polls. This nothing more than little Johnny or Suzy throwing a tantrum because they are used to adults giving in just to quiet them and spare the embarrassment.

Liberals are used to manipulating exhausted Americans with tantrums. The noise may be exhausting, it may look insurmountable, and probably intimidating. It supposed to be. That’s the tactic.

Now is not the time for Americans to give back any ground. Giving an inch to Johnny only makes him worse in the next tantrum. Let’s be that immovable force, not give any ground, and prove them liars once again.

The Unmasking: This is the Democrat Party

 

Whether immersed in complete insanity or unfettered hubris, the Democrat Party has called its own bluff and laid their cards on the table. The unmasking of the Democrat Party has been accomplished by a voting populace, whom the Democrats’ disdain could barely acknowledge and whose unrelenting pressure has caused the full reveal of the monster that lay beneath the aging political facade. Even while those within the beast misdirect their rage for this public discovery at the unrelenting President, whom these unrelenting voters have elected to be their representation in the White House, the realization has settled into the tentacles of the scaly serpent that slithers through the gilded halls of capital buildings throughout this Republic; There will be no mid-term blue wave this fall.

Some candidates, such as Jared Golden Democrat candidate for House in CD 2, are publicly admitting their dire realizations of disastrous results for their Party in the coming election. Perhaps it is a sudden awareness that Americans are a lot more American than Democrats anticipated. The lid has come off the Democrat Cauldron and the anti-American hatred that has been seething, boiling, and festering beneath the cover has come gurgling forth into open to the disgust and revulsion of the American people.

Guise and subterfuge have been all but dismantled by a self-inflicted demolition of unhinged obsessive rage at a President who doesn’t play the game. The heat of passion and adversity often reveal true character or lack thereof. The truth of the Democrat Party has been laid bare before the Nation to its own undoing.

As I have stated before, the 2nd Amendment would be the divining issue in this election. I still believe that is true. Democrats have declared all out war on the 2nd Amendment’s protection of the Natural Born

Right to self-defense. An armed America that disdains their revealed lunacies has driven Democrats to frenzied, untethered behavior. It is an armed populace that calls a halt to the most heinous of plans by the leftists.

The armed citizens also lend protection to the rest of the Constitution, which has come under renewed brazen open attacks by Democrats. They no longer mince words when decrying the Constitution as the single largest encumbrance to their Marxist agenda. The despise an America that, to their surprise, still believes in the freedoms of the people and the constraining of government.

On our borders, the Democrats are openly calling for literal invasions of illegal immigrants into this country, overwhelming our undermanned border patrols. Our President has put a stop to it. Through Executive Order, he has also put a stop to the humanitarian issue of separating families that was created by the last President’s administration.

This Order sent the issue to Congress so that they could create legislation, which would fix the problem. Democrats, as a united voting block, voted down the measure that would have kept immigrant families together. This was in obedience to Chuck Schumer’s directive to vote against any legislation which solves the immigration problem, as the Democrat leader wants to use it for a campaign issue. Exploitation at its flaming apex.

The Democrats are electing socialist candidates who openly call for free entitlements for illegal immigrants and high taxation of citizens to pay for it. Democrats are openly demanding that our salaries and earnings belong to them. They want “their” tax dollars back, despite the boom the tax cuts have been to the economy.

Democrats are calling for mobs to attack members of the President’s administration, calling on people to harass them in their personal time with families, and even giving addresses to their private homes. They have called for riots, bombings, rapes and murders of the President’s family. All this unhinged behavior, whether of intent or hyperbole, has drained the well of the American patience and tolerance, and offended the sense of common decency we most embrace.

Socialists control the populace by force. That’s why they hate the 2nd Amendment. Under the past administration, they were near to realizing a control through force of government. The revolution of the people in this past election caught Democrats off guard.

Now in desperation, they are resorting to force by violence. The mask is off and the intent to destroy this Republic is not hidden anymore. This coming election may have incidents which will be marked as dark days in our history.

Let us not relent. Do not revel in their tantrums and content with one victory. Remain engaged and meet their force of violence with our steady resolve to see this Republic restored.
