Something to Watch for Among Politicians and Journalists


Paul Crookston makes an important point, from which follows a test we can all apply going forward:

Democrats are not doing anything to adjust to the changed political landscape, as evidenced by their retention of Nancy Pelosi as House minority leader, and it seems that elite news media are also sticking to the same playbook. They are wasting opportunity to understand the voters who are dissatisfied with them.

Voters of all political persuasions should watch the national Democrats and the news media.  If they don’t make changes to reflect the people they’re supposedly representing, it means they aren’t intending to represent, but to rule, and are hoping the demographics of the nation will change sufficiently that they can dismiss without repercussion the people they’ve been dismissing to their own detriment.

So far the signs that cynics like me will be proven wrong are nowhere to be found.

    The Dem assumption is that Hispanics vote as a block and don’t understand what policies actually help them and their families. If Trump gets the economy going and people begin to realize that rule of law is better than rule by law, they may be in for a rude awakening.

        Politics is a theology, much like “Climate Change” (which morphed seamlessly from “Global Warming”) and will not implode from one failure. I did hope Clinton would be prosecuted, I thought that might make things clear to the Americans. I thought exposure of the “Foundations” would be a centerpiece for “draining the swamp”. Watched a docu-drama on LBJ the other evening. His speechwriter decides to quit and LBJ suggests he could get him a little money from his “Foundation”. Didn’t know they had been around that long.

    They’re walking farther out the plank…why stop them?
