I hope Republicans understand that 2020 will be all recounts

leave a comment »

A few days ago, Mrs. Clinton said something rather irresponsible.  She told an audience that Stacey Abrams would have already won Georgia race if “she had a fair election.”

Did someone mention to Mrs. Clinton that Mr. Kemp is up by 58,000?   

What evidence does Mrs. Clinton have?  Is she suggesting that the entire election system in Georgia is corrupt?  What about the Democrats who won?  Are those elections unfair too?

We are watching three important stories here:

First, the Democrats are playing the race card through these recounts.  It’s no coincidence that the two losing candidates are liberal African Americans. 

Second, Mrs. Clinton knows that the next Democrat primary will be fought in the left corner.  So she is pushing herself to the left as fast as she can.

And third, the Democrats are pushing the envelope to see what they can get away with in 2020.  In other words, these 2016 recounts are an exhibition game before we play for keeps in 2020.

I agree with Ned Ryun:   

If you think what’s taking place in Florida right now with the recounts is just about 2018 results, you’d be sadly mistaken. Yes, of course, the fight is about ensuring that Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott taking their rightful seats as governor and senator. But much more is at stake.

The most basic principles of our constitutional republic would mean nothing without free and fair elections, along with the rule of law, to support them.

Yet what we’re seeing with the Democrats in Broward and Palm Beach Counties is the Clinton approach to the law: the law is more a series of suggestions that can they choose to follow, or not, as suits their convenience.

And they do find laws so terribly inconvenient. In their minds, the idea of free and fair elections is a quaint idea that’s for suckers.

Keep the votes flowing like manna from heaven until they win is the Democrats’ mantra.

That’s right.  The Democrats’ 2020 strategy will be to look for votes until they win.  2018 is just a trial run for 2020.

Let’s hope that GOP governors in Florida and Ohio make changes that prevent these problems again.

I am not against recounts, especially when the difference in the candidates automatically calls for one.  Unfortunately, we are not seeing that in Florida. 

This is a full assault to help Democrats.  It can’t be allowed!

Bolsonaro is right about the Cuban doctors

leave a comment »

For years, Cuba has sent doctors to Brazil.  It started in 2013 under an agreement between the Castro regime and Brazil’s leftist government.  The doctors were sent to poor areas.  In reality, it was just another source of hard currency for the Cuban government. 

Brazil’s President-elect Bolsonaro wants to change the arrangement and Cuba does not like it.  

This is his tweet.   

This is the news report from The Guardian:  

Mr Bolsonaro said Brazil would offer asylum to Cuban doctors who wished to stay in Brazil.

“This is slave labour,” he said. “I couldn’t be an accomplice of that.”

It makes a lot of sense and is long overdue.  It’s nice to hear an international leader call out this sham. 

It was never a program to provide medical services to poor people.  It was another way of bringing hard currency to the Cuban government. 

Cuba is balking because the salaries will be paid to the doctors not the government. 

Also, the doctors will be allowed to bring their families.  Naturally, Cuba fears that whole families will run to an embassy and ask for asylum.

A big victory for the Cuban doctors and a huge defeat for the Castro regime.

And now the Democrat show starts

leave a comment »

According to news reports, opponents of Minority Leader Pelosi claim she will not be Speaker. This is from Roll Call:  

Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, one of the leaders of a small Democratic contingent opposing Nancy Pelosi’s bid for speaker, said Tuesday he is “100 percent confident” the group has enough commitments to block the California Democrat from being elected speaker on the floor.

The anti-Pelosi group has been gathering signatures from new and returning members on a letter that calls for new Democratic leadership. It also notes that the signatories will not back Pelosi during the January floor vote for speaker.

Moulton suggested they already have enough signatures to prevent Pelosi from getting 218 votes but declined to specify exactly how many.    

Well, let’s see what happens when they officially over in early January.

I see a couple of scenarios where the Democrats don’t have a  happy ending.

First, they barely select Mrs. Pelosi and every GOP challenger runs against her in 2020.  At the same time, every incumbent Democrat runs away from her.  Let’s face it: Nancy is not popular between the coasts.

Second, they barely select someone else and the party’s dinosaurs go on resistance against the new leadership. 

It won’t end well because they are not united.  Also, many of these new representatives are already facing a tough reelection in 2020.

It will be fun to watch, especially for the fellow that lives in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.   He will spend the next two years running against the Democrats.
