Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat.

We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis.

Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all.

Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11)
Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure.

Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters.

Blame the #ElectoralCollege.

Blame Comey.

Blame the Russians.

No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.
About those #Russians.

We have assured ourselves that Trump is a Russian traitor. We’ve held up the #SteeleDossier as proof.

Nevermind that CIA Director Brennan gave it “no particular credence.”

Rather than let Mueller find the facts, we’ve already executed POTUS for treason.
Meanwhile, we’ve defended the #FBI, calling them unquestionable defenders of freedom.

Nevermind that Hellen Keller could see that the senior ranks — Comey, Strzok, etc — deserved scrutiny & punishment.

Indeed, the #IGReport laid out a damning case in painful detail.

Oops.
Socially, we’ve also fanned the flames of discord.

After #Charlottesville, we were more concerned about tearing down Confederate statues than holding #Antifa’s feet to the fire.

And those statues? America wanted new ones next to the old. Add to history, not destroy it.

But no.
And then there was #BLM.

Less than 1,000 people die annually at the hands of a cop. Out of 325 million people.

And most of the dead are white.

Studies do show people of color suffer harassment by cops at higher levels than whites. But not deaths.

Where was that nuance?
Now let’s talk #Islam.

Democrats scream that “We’re All Muslim” while wearing scarfs that actual Muslim women dream of taking off w/o being jailed.

And what about Salafi Muslims who hate gays, science, & democracy? Are Democrats those Muslims too?

Zero reason in this debate.
Which leads to #immigration.

We’re embracing #AbolishICE knowing full well the history of the Abolish movement is to create #OpenBorders.

Nevermind that polls overwhelmingly show Americans want illegals deported, humanely, and our border strengthened.

But Dem elites don’t care
Now we’re embracing #Socialism w/ no concern for its dark history or how we’d pay for all of those “free” programs.

Normally the media would hold these folks accountable. But no. They’re too busy calling Socialists “badass” and “super impressive.”

How objective!
None of this means Trump or Republicans are the answer. Some of the garbage that’s coming out of their mouths is equally wrong.

But unless Democrats present a credible alternative, our arguments won’t matter. Rightfully so.

We will have whined & cried wolf one too many times.
I’m done w/ #Progressives. I’m done w/ the #RESISTANCE.

I’m done with the Nazi talk, the bashing of Trump voters.

I’m done with the refusal to own our mistakes.

And yes, I’m done with folks like @michaelianblack, who sit in mansions & complain of fatigue.

They can pound sand.

The NY Times just got a bunch of people killed.

All because of its hatred of Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress.

Here’s how. (Thread)

nytimes.com/2018/08/24/us/…
The Times wants us to believe our Russian intel sources have dried up.

Reporters @julianbarnes & @AllMattNYT shared classified details that speak of our struggling clandestine efforts against Putin & his regime.

Never mind that highlighting our weakness atrenghrens his hand.
To wit, this para:

“Informants close to Putin are very rare... The United States, in recent years, has had only a few, and at times been reliant on only one or two for the most important insights on Mr. Putin, according to former officials.”

Let that treachery sink in.

Defining “Socialist” isn’t hard. You just have to read their work & listen to their leaders

And what you’ll find is frightening

Worse yet, the Dem Socialists of America (DSA) actually has a good shot of gaining power if we don’t wake up & fight back

Let’s read their plan: 1/17
.@DemSocialists want to abolish capitalism and transfer ownership of “essential” industries / related businesses to the govt or worker committees.

Why?

“Wealth is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”

(bit.ly/2vfQ7E5)
DSA’ers are squishy when defining which industries they’d nationalize. But the list touches every possible business, from food to electronics

Workers would then vote on which role is best for them, similar to the disastrous experiment at Zappos in 2016. (bit.ly/2DKlGNd)

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez — the alleged future of the #DemocraticParty — explains that she wants:

1) Death to capitalism & profit
2) Free housing, college, & healthcare
3) Open borders
4) End to killing terrorists

Here’s why this Dem thinks she‘s nuts. (1/6)

pbs.org/video/alexandr…
Capitalism has eliminated more poverty than any economic system on the planet.

Period.

Is it a perfect system? Not by a long shot. But Ocasio’s dream would unquestionably put at risk millions of people who have climbed out of poverty.

Just ask anyone who lives in Venezuela.
Meanwhile, Ocasio‘s promise of free govt services is a joke.

1) Free healthcare for all? She has no plan to pay for it.
2) Free housing? No money left after free healthcare.
3) Free college? But seriously, we’d be out of money.

These aren’t bold ideas. They’re bald-faced lies.

You asked about racial violence between cops and people of color.

Fundamentally, you're asking if #BLM is right.

Let's start a conversation about what we know - and what we don't - about police, bias, and the killing of our fellow citizens. (1/14)
Most of us would agree that a single death of an innocent person by a police officer is one too many.

Black or white.

Police departments agree. They have training & oversight to ensure shootings don't happen or officers are punished when an unjustifiable killing occurs.
#BLM argues that, regardless, the system isn't working; cops are still targeting black people w/ violence or avoiding punishment when caught.

It's a belief founded in America's very real & ugly history.

A brief review of that shameful past is here: wapo.st/2NqtYLD

Our foreign affairs must be strategic.

#CentralAmerica is a priority because of immigration. Illegal migrants cost us billions.

Meanwhile, all focus must be on containing the Communist #China threat. Where that involves alliances w/ poor nations, aid must be rendered.
The plan for #CentralAmerica is being retooled by WH’s John Kelly & DHS. (reut.rs/2JVEIzy)

I believe a further step is needed w/ a stabilization force, built with a coalition of Latin American nations.

Meanwhile, let’s beef up our border (fence/wall/tech solutions).
But the #CentralAmerica plan is medium to long term. What about right now?

First, let’s stop with the Nazi talk. It’s factually wrong, morally repugnant & does nothing to solve the problem.

Next, Congress needs to get off their butts & send Trump an #ImmigrationReform bill.

Illegal minors can’t be imprisoned w/ adult parents. Bush & Obama released all onto US soil til judges ruled. Rife w/ abuse.

Trump stopped this by separating illegals & their kids, holding both in jails & camps. All to force DC to fix the broken system.

It’s a brutal strategy.
While we debate whether #Trump’s strategy is right (or humane), the facts are being distorted.

Case in point: the holding facilities for kids (both accompanied by adults and those running on their own).

The left paints them as Nazi camps. They’re not. wapo.st/2t3sE8G
Critics also claim that #Trump’s policies are resulting in kids being lost or abandoned. You see it in the frothy #WhereAreTheChildren cries for justice.

One problem. Kids aren’t being lost. It’s hysterical fear mongering like always. mobile.nytimes.com/2018/05/28/us/…
