You can call this satire, but... Think about this. If Hillary was elected, there would be more displeasure with the Democratic Party. Forget about true progressives, not just the 'Democratic Bernie loving Socialists' which really are not true Socialists. But that's for another column. Anyhow, with Hillary elected, many longtime, and of course recent Democratic voters would jump ship. She would continue the Cold War with Russia, do nothing for working stiffs, and of course, as a ' Good Patriotic Democrat' she would allow more and more money for the War Economy AKA Military Spending AKA Defense . Under Democrat Obama, the military spending broke records by topping 51% of our tax money. Oh yes, and under him the drone missile attacks increased by 10 times from those under the Bush/Cheney cabal. Hillary would be almost as much of a horror as this former Reality Television star.
So, how could the Trumpster work to aid the powerful National Democratic Party? Well, look what has transpired. Trump and his minions, and of course the Real Deep State Fat Cats who run the Military Industrial Empire, they have done so much to destroy we working stiffs. All across the board this Trump crew is a disaster in every way. Not enough, sadly, to wake up those fools within his ' base', many with not a pot to piss in. The polls reveal my claim that Trump is sending millions of people, including many among that 50% of eligible voters who don't even vote, to the open arms of the Dems. Look at the recent House races for proof of this cogent point. The landslide has not even begun yet!! Each month that goes by will see the Democratic Party greeting more and more folks. They are going to be stronger than ever!
Trump's much anticipated defeat in 2020 has ambitious Democrats salivating. No wonder the field is ludicrously crowded. There are now 15 Dems in the ring. And more will probably enter before this abject farandula is over.
This writer had dinner with four baby boomer acquaintances. All they were concerned about was TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP. One gentleman, an Indian born in Calcutta, but living here for 40 years, is planning to move to Portugal until, as he put it " Trump is gone!". During dinner I brought to the group's attention that today was March 19th, and did anyone know why that was so important a date? No one realized the invasion of Iraq with Shock and Awe was 16 years earlier. None of them really seemed to have the same ' Negative passion ' over probably the single most heinous crime committed by our nation that they were dispensing for TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP. On top of that, when I made some comments about this current Democratic presidential field, and how they were disingenuous when it came to key issues... " Well, we know how limited the Dems are, but ALL that matters now is to defeat Trump." If only they could see that maybe my conspiracy satire wasn't really a satire at all.
In my ( supposed) satire, maybe it was sources within the Democratic National Party that leaked the emails fingering Hillary and others , and not the Russians. This then becomes a twofold Win Win: A) to get her defeated, so my aforementioned scenario takes hold and B) it gives fodder to a new Cold War mindset vs. the evil Russkies. Mrs. Pelosi has now been resurrected politically from the soon to be dustbin she faced before the election. Even Ms. Ocasio- Cortez and her fellow ' progressives' stand behind her now. ' Feel the Bern' and Ms. Warren and all their presidential contenders ( perhaps excepting Ms. Gabbard) all are lock step behind their ' Big Tent ' party leaders- people like my old schoolmate ( and nice guy, by the way) Sen. Chuck Schumer who sat on the Senate Banking Committee for so long and did nothing about the predatory ' loan shark ' policies of the credit card banking industry with their high interest rates. Who cared about personal bankruptcy and its slave like conditions when the Wall Street banksters needed bailing out? Need I go on and on about the phony and empire serving Democrats?
Folks, this ' lesser of two evils ' political party is in fact the lesser of the other evil party... but not so far behind. Maybe Donny boy has done his job so well, even if he knows nothing about their agenda.
