Be Careful What You Wish For

What’s happening to the Dirty Dems right now confirms the truth in the maxim “Be careful what you wish for or you may get it.”  They’re learning the hard way that getting what you want can have very painful consequences.

The fuel that powers the Dirty Dems’ self-destructive wishes is their stock in trade — lies.  They don’t just lie, they laugh about it, brag about it, and celebrate it.  And, above all, they are relentless.  Their overconfidence motivates them to double-down, triple-down, and quadruple-down on their lies.

And why not?  After all, they know that their Radical Left base, the Fake News Media, and even some RINOs will applaud their efforts, so what’s to lose?  Absolutely nothing.  They have plenty to gain, however, in the way of raw, unadulterated power.

While the Dirty Dem wish list is very long, right now there are two wish-for problems, in particular, that are rapidly growing out of control, to wit:

The first problem is the invasion at our southern border by immigrants trying to enter the United States illegally.  The Dirty Dems’ response to this crisis is to insist that it’s “manufactured.”  It’s one of those “don’t believe your lying eyes” kind of lies.  But as the invaders ramp up their numbers of illegal crossings and create ever more havoc with drugs, human trafficking, and other crimes, the Dirty Dems are going to find it more and more difficult to deny that it’s happening.

The basic miscalculation that open-borders advocates make is that they base their arguments on the false premise that since Americans are generous and welcoming people, they have a moral obligation to help illegal aliens gain entrance into the United States without having to go through the laborious process of becoming actual citizens.

Keep in mind that a false premise is usually an a priori argument wherein one merely states his conclusion as his premise.  It’s a cute little trick if you can get away with it, and the Dirty Dems have been getting away with it for decades.

Of course, a thinking person recognizes that he has no moral obligation to accept someone else’s conclusion/opinion as a guide to how he should live his life.  I doubt that many citizens voted for their congressperson because they wanted them to help improve the lives of illegal immigrants.  On the contrary, it’s safe to assume that they sent them to Washington to pass legislation to make their own lives better.

Nor did they want their representatives to spend billions of dollars for housing, feeding, educating, and taking care of the medical needs of people who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States.  Or to plant them in cities throughout the country without the permission of the legal residents of those cities.

That, however, does not deter elected officials who care little about the desires of the voters who put them in office.  Perversely, working on behalf of illegal immigrants is precisely what most Democrats and establishment Republicans believe to be one of their top priorities.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m sure that most Americans would agree that helping to improve the lives of people from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador is a noble objective that should be a top priority — for the governments of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, that is.

The Dirty Dems’ second major wish-for problem comes courtesy of Somalia’s answer to Alexandria Moronio-Cortez — Ilhan Omar, who currently has the Dirty Dems fiercely braying in pain.  The big lie here that’s coming back to bite the Dirty Dems is their insistence that Muslims can do no wrong and that “Islamophobia” poses a greater danger to America than Islamic terrorism.  This, notwithstanding the Muslim carnage in places like Fort Hood, Fort Dix, San Bernardino, and the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

The San Bernardino carnage was especially telling because of the government’s rejoinder to it.  In a stunning outburst, then attorney general Loretta “Tarmac” Lynch threatened to investigate anyone who “uses anti-Muslim rhetoric.”  Obama’s Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson also chimed in by warning American citizens that they “must not vilify American Muslims.”  The message was clear:  We must protect Muslims from hurt feelings at all costs.

Such statements are precisely what makes Islamophobia phobia — the fear of offending Muslims — the most dangerous of all Islamic terrorists.  It also breeds anti-Semitic hate mongers like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.  The Dirty Dems are getting what they wished for and, as a result, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for Nancy Pelosi to keep her dentures in place.

Of course, rational, mentally stable people realize that calling out Omar and Tlaib for making outrageous anti-Semitic statements does not make someone an “Islamophobe.”  It just makes them honest.  Nevertheless, the Dirty Dems stood their ground and refused to specifically condemn Omar for her blatant anti-Semitic remarks, instead condemning both anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim bias.

It goes without saying that most Americans have nothing against Muslims of goodwill, just as they have nothing against civilized African-Americans of goodwill or civilized white Americans of goodwill.  Likewise, just because someone reviles reprobates like Chuck Schumer, Richard Blumenthal, Jerry Nadler, and Adam Schiff does not make them anti-Semitic.  It does not cast a shadow on Jews like Mark Levin, Dennis Prager, and Congressman Lee Zeldin who are staunch advocates of liberty.

The two big wish-for problems above are almost certain to get worse over the next 20 months and, if so, will be more than the pathetic crop of Dirty Dem presidential candidates will be able to handle.  Even so, they’re just the tip of the Dirty Dem wish list, which includes such other goodies as:

Socialism, as well as the term “democratic socialism” that they use to camouflage it, is a wish that most of the Dirty Dem 2020 presidential candidates are already frantically running away from.  Their panic reminds me of Gene Wilder, in the film Young Frankenstein, when he was trapped in the laboratory with the monster, pounding on the door and shouting, “I was joking!  I was joking!”

A few other big wish-for items include artificially raising the minimum wage (which already is causing businesses to shed jobs and workers’ hours), manmade global warming and its desperate, phony fallback position, “climate change,” and absurdities in the Green New Deal, such as abolishing everything from airplanes to cows, rebuilding every building in the United States (I love it!), and redistributing money from those who work for a living to those who prefer to relax all day.

Let’s hope the Dirty Dems keep wishing for more and more outrageous things, and that they keep spreading more and more lies in an effort to get them.  Then let’s hope that they actually get what they wish for in the form of more and bigger problems that result in more and more Radical Left hysteria.

Of course, to keep everything in perspective, we should never lose sight of the fact that none of this may even matter if we’re only going to be around another 12 years.

    All politicians lie, but democrats have taken lying to a new level. They're probably required to stand for hours in front a mirror practicing lying until they can lie convincingly. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they sometimes lie just for sport and a good laugh.

    We've arrived at the point where whatever a democrat says, you can be sure the opposite is true.

    • Jean says:

      They may not need to practice. One of the attributes of the psychopath is the ability to lie without flinching, remorse or guilt. That's why polygraph tests don't work on them.

  3. IHeartDagny says:

    Their hatred of Donald J. Trump AND HIS VOTERS is causing them to abandon their incrementalism and swing for the fences. You can THANK the president for this. He is solely responsible for pushing every button to make them expose themselves. The guy is a MASTER at "The Art of War" and human psychology.

    Dimwitted thug? Huh. Not on your life. Get out the popcorn. While the Democrats are going to go FULL UGLY (and sink to even MORE horrendous depths), normal, apolitical people are FINALLY going to be converted into full-on Patriots who FULLY understand WHO the enemy within is and has ALWAYS been.

    Even worse than lying is hypocrisy, such as the party of Bill Clinton going after President Trump for “womanizing.”

    The more and louder these weirdos flap their yaps, the more I am loving it. The political graves they are digging are their own which will boomerang around and back, hitting them right between their eyes in 2020 with a nationwide political disaster. All the Republicans need to do, which I am sure they are doing, or at least hope that they are doing, is keep a running list of all the Left's political suicide comments, and using them as lethal campaign issues during the 2020 presidential campaign. I bet the GOP right now is giddy with glee as their list of crazy comments, aka. their political ammo, gets longer and longer and more and more unbelievable. What is so stupid about the Radic-Comms is that they actually believe that the great middle class and Silent Majority will actually welcome this great chamber of horrors into their lives. Dream on! They are so out of it! As I have said before in previous articles, the parallels between 2020 and 1972 are getting greater and greater. This past weekend I pulled up behind an automobile, you know, the kind that Problem Child AOC wants outlawed and pulled off the road, at a red light that had a bumpersticker, "4 More Years". That was one of several slogans used by the 1972 Nixon re-election against Sen. George McGovern. The American people will totally repudiate the Left and their Radic-Comm socialist ideology next year, and they will hand a huge political victory on a silver platter to President Trump. All the President has to do is fulfill every campaign promise which he is currently doing, and be Presidential. He will have no opposition. 4 more years! 4 more years! 4 more years! Re-elect the President!

    Trump 2020!

        Listen, a lot of us conservatives and libertarians thought that we would never be able to get through 8 long years of Obama, but we did. And you will get through the 8 years of Trump too. Just like you'll get through the 8 years of a Mike Pence presidency, then 8 years of a Donald Trump Jr. presidency, followed by 8 years of a Eric Trump presidency, followed by 8 years of an Ivania Trump presidency and followed by 8 years of a Barron Trump presidency so cheer up, all is not lost.

      I agree to a certain extent, then their is one of my favorite quotes by: Reinhold Niebuhr Quotes.

Hopefully enough Americans will continue to have the courage to fight for their freedom.

  11. Richard Lee Van Der says:

    Fifty some years ago, I was a young college instructor and somewhat "liberal", even though up from the "Working Classes" (factory workers and farmers). But after fifteen years, circumstantially, I re-entered the more real/normal world (of America) and not so gradually became a hard core Conservative! BUT, even when "young and naive", I and others NEVER entertained subscribing to Socialism! Why/How, I wonder, have the current crop of "young" become so incredibly naive? Simply because they want/expect FREE EVERY/THING? From the time I was in Second Grade (as a budding Sales Person) I began to practice the Work Ethic and never stopped! How/why have the contemporary "young", more than half we read, rejected the Work Ethic of Capitalism? I saw that during my father's time (b.1906) workers were "used" and paid as little as possible, but it never occurred to me that a man (women tended to stay home back then, before "The War") should not have to work for a living. Etc. In any case, the young of current time appear to be very different from me an' the boys I grew up with! We were and remained "Hustlers" in the best sense! And worked our way UP! (Go, Trump!)

  12. Robert D says:

    the radical lefties are doing us all a favor by showing their cards – intolerance, anger, and hatred or applause for a message not depending upon the content but upon the speaker. The Democrats are giving up their middle entirely and that does not make for electability. If we assume the country is approximately 1/3 who will vote for any Democrat, 1/3 who will vote for any Republican and 1/3 who are swing voters it stands to reason that no one can win who is not central-right or central-left because they never get near 50%. And the Democrats are swinging far left and will lose the middle. Plus, I cannot imagine a Jew who would not consider leaving the Democrats. Jews are both people of a country (Israel) and an ethnicity so Tlaib's comments make no sense because it denies ethnic Jews here in the USA who are Citizens of the USA and as much a part of the USA as anyone else. They are not foreign anymore than an American with ancestry in Italy, Mexico, China or Russia is. But Tlaib's hatred shows through and the parties failure to denounce her comments is a failure on the Democrats part that should alarm all Jews. Then there are minorities in America who are fairing much better under Trump – more jobs and opportunities, higher wages (due to job growth and employers needing to raise compensation to attract workers) and a president who supports Charter Schools which are often much better opportunity for those who cannot afford traditional private schools and are then stuck with lousy public schools. Charters are their opportunity. I guess the Democrats assume people are stupid and cannot distinguish lying rhetoric from actual reality in their lives. We shall see if they are correct in next election. I have faith people are not stupid but we shall see. by the way I assume I may not see any of you on Facebook or any other Silicon Valley based company. I am sure I will be banned after posting a pro-republican and pro-president comment. Those lefties are so intolerant of another view point. Because after all if you cannot win an argument with facts and logic at least silence the speaker.

  13. TheLookOut says:

    May the D/Dems keep right on digging in their self made cesspool of delusion.
    Then, and only then will that stench become so putrid that anyone with any
    sense of logic,vision, and self determination will reject the lies of these radicals.

    Unfortunately, it will have to get worse before it gets better.

    My wife and I love your insight, enjoy reading your articles, and are on the same page as others here. FYI, we NEVER reply or post comments anywhere. This is a first but we will put it out there for anyone to formulate there own opinion.

    Your last sentence had us spooked considered we watched this Greg Hunter interview with Dane Wigington yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n8d_CJX0p8

    Our opinion is that Mr Hunter is a respectable independent journalist with some very interesting guests and information you just won't hear anywhere else. Maybe 12 years is not that far fetched? Who knows…

    Keep up the good work! Thanks
