Democrat presidency, House, Senate? Be very afraid

Be afraid, be very afraid.  The Democrats now control the presidency and, albeit with paper-thin margins, both branches of Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate, thus, in effect, erasing — or at least blurring — the separation of powers between the presidency and Congress. 

The Senate officially fell on Wednesday as the far left, anti American, socialist, we-know-better-how-to-spend-your-money-than-you-deplorables elitists officially imprisoned that body with the dual declared victories in Georgia of  Reverend (yes, he is a Christian minister like, oh, say, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, not the late Rev. Martin L. King,  whose church he now leads) Raphael Warnock, alleged wife-beater, non-alleged supervisor of a camp that allegedly abused children, allegedly against Jews and Israel, and alleged anti-white racist, and Jon Ossoff, a wealthy Millennial thanks to his family and his business dealings with Chinese communists and Al Jazeera.  

With these latest victories, the Senate is now officially 50% Democratic, which highly increases the chances of a tie vote.  What happens then?  Well, maybe compromise and another vote.  But if that doesn't happen, the tie-breaking vote falls to the vice president,  Kamala Harris.

Meanwhile, over at the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-wealthy California) barely squeaked to another victorious term, continuing as the first female (to use a now banned  sex-specific word) speaker of the House.  But this victory came at great cost as even some House Democrats, whose numbers will be greatly reduced in the 117th Congress, voted present or for others instead of for Pelosi.  Therefore, Pelosi had to go against the rules — they're Democrats, they're allowed, so they think — and import Wuhan virus–positive Rep Gwen Davis (D-Wis.) and make some last minute shady deals — they're Democrats, they're allowed, so they think — with the Pelosi-hating Millennials of the Squad to finally achieve 216 votes of the 218 needed for a majority.  Close behind her, House minority leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) won 209 votes.

So Nancy owes the Squad; they don't really owe her.  Dutifully paying her debt, "Pelosi Appoints AOC, Other 'Squad' Members to Powerful Oversight Committee; Leftists Promptly Reveal Radical Agenda."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appointed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Math Wizard) and two of her "Squad" comrades to the powerful House Oversight and Reform Committee, which will give the far-left lawmakers a platform from which to push their radical agenda on Joe Biden.

Joining AOC are Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-TDS) and newcomer Rep. Cori Bush (D-BLM).  (snip)

Democrats and leftists have immediately called for radical legislative action that they intend to push Congress to enact and Biden to sign into law. Here's a sampling:

Leftist Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) called for "transformative change," "recurring survival checks," "racial justice," "climate action," "repro justice," and "MUCH more."

There are "MUCH more" frightening demands spelled out at the link — basically "free" stuff, generous cash check for those elitists paid for by hardworking, saving, thrifty people and probably you.  Rights for illegal aliens and more of them.  More equality with some more equal than others.  More "free" stuff.

Afraid yet?  Good.  Now put that fear to work.  No need to cower or go on the defensive.  Have confidence — the confidence that comes from strong, powerful facts.   Go on the offense, pre-empt their positions with the positive reasons for a free market, limited government, individual responsibility.  Point out the many problems in Democratic dominated strongholds suffering from overreaching government, expensive free stuff, high taxes, racial and ethnic divisions.  

Now the Democrats will totally own the inevitable problems their disastrous policies will bring.  However, being Democrats, they will try to shift responsibility while whining not my fault; your fault.  Don't let them do that; don't accept it, but toss it right back to them. 

And then turn that fear into a positive force.  The next congressional election is in less than two years.  The time to start bringing about congressional change — diversity, as the Democrats might say — is now.

Get to work.
