While the headline reads like a purge of unwanteds and a revision of their policies because of their catastrophic failure in the last election, the story by Alex Seitz-Wald says, it's all routine: No big brouhaha.
"...Immediately after [Tom] Perez's selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party's internal workings..."You could speculate that the Democrats are facing a formidable foe in the person of President Donald Trump. That's what the rhetoric says.
"... 'This is longstanding precedent at the DNC and has happened during multiple Chair transitions,' said DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa. 'The process was started before the election of the new Chair. From the beginning, Tom has been adamant that we structure the DNC for future campaigns. Current and future DNC staff will be integral to that effort. Over the last few months, the DNC staff has done incredible work under immense pressure to hold Trump accountable.' ..."
See? Nothing to worry about. Socialism isn't going anywhere, and probably will become SOCIAL-ISM!
Without going into the nether-world of speculation and/or conspiracy theory mongering, even a cursory historical accounting of Democrat politics will tell you that, more than a trend, the Democrat march to the Left is as certain as death and taxes, and as has been evident by some of their actions, they do not feel a need to effect any kind of correction. In fact, they have dug their trenches deeper, and are digging in for the long fight.
Can they go any farther Left than they have already gone and risk alienating Americans even more?
Well, consider that the ObamaCare REPEAL will not happen. Although the plan that the President so adamantly promoted "failed," and Republicans are now fighting over whose fault it is, and what a failure it's been, some sooth saying soothers are intimating that something more is coming from that direction. What pray tell, might that be?
Get ready for Single Payer Health Care.
Yup. The Democrats had no intention of succeeding with ObamaCare. Their roll-out was an intentional fiasco. For all their whining about "Repeal" and about how it would be such a horrible thing if Americans lost their Health Care, have you seen any Democrat jumping frantically to fix it? ObamaCare will implode and melt for all to see. That was intended from the beginning. It will be a fiasco, as much of it already is. It will turn into a catastrophic emergency, and you watch. Trump will ride in on his big Cadillac horse and save the day with single-payer Health Care, only it won't be called "single-payer." It will be called the non-single-payer single payer health care: to mask the fact that it will be ... single--payer.
Why is that?
Because politicians, once elected, want to get reelected. And Trump said he was going to appeal to Democrats, since, he believes, Republicans "blew it." His spokespersons clarified that he meant to say he was reaching out to blue-dog Democrats, but the blue-dogs have already been "on board."
Now, mind you, Trump has been in favor of a Single Payer system since... forever. The following is from 60 Minutes back in 2015 as reported by Breitbart. (SEE TRUMP)
Frank Camp at the Independent Journal Review notes "5 Times Donald Trump Praised Socialized Healthcare." He wrote that article a year ago. (Trump Pushes Single Payer)
Caleb Howe wrote an article about this last January, in which he quotes Trump saying:
"...We’re going to have insurance for everybody ... There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better..." Read it here: (Health Insurance for Everybody)But that's about Trump. Why are we talking about Trump, when we're talking about the Democrats going even further to the Left than Obama?
Because Trump is going to take them there.
The theme is that American Socialism is broken, and he's going to fix it. He's going to streamline it, and make it the very best Socialism there is, and that ever has been. It's going to be great and you are going to love it.
You might want to take notice that one of the lead stories yesterday was "Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner: Rising Powers at the White House," by Ali Vitali and Corky Siemaszko. Ali and Corky wasted no time telling us that Ivanka and Jared, now rising power brokers at the White House are NOT Republicans:
"...She is an independent and called Chelsea Clinton a friend. He is a Democrat whose dad, Charles, was a bigtime donor to the Democratic Party, including Hillary Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign..."Goodhearted, wise, Americans chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton last November. That was after Democrats crossed over in certain primaries in favor of Trump. Liberal Establishment Republicans worked to undermine Conservative favorite Ted Cruz, pretending to dislike Donald Trump, but eventually capitulating and supporting him. And he won. And it was a wise choice, because if he had lost, and Hillary Clinton had won, you would now be living in the United Soviet Socialist States of America, and there would be a wall being built all around America, not to keep illegal immigrants out, but you IN.
You don't have to feel like you're between a rock and a hard place. With the choice you had you won. Now it's time to go back to enhancing and strengthening the conservative movement, because Mr. efficiency is going to make a wide Left Turn in his giant Cadillac, and it's going to be the biggest, best, most wonderful Left turn that's ever been, and you're going to finance it, and "you're going to love it. "
And while you're "loving it," unless you are building conservative political squads, platoons, battalions, regiments, flotillas, navies, tanks, bombers, etc., get your chains ready, because just as sure as you are reading this, Trump is going to streamline big government, and hand to Democrats, legions of Socialist political Panzer units to transform America into the Marxist hell-hole Obama could not bring to fruition.
We barely squeaked by in the last election. We had to go with Trump to avoid Hillary. We still got a Democrat, who ran under the Republican banner. And it feels strange that in many instances you find yourself defending Trump against the Democrats.
We made a "deal." Did we preserve the Supreme court? Did we get the Justice Department back? Are we getting back our Constitution?
We got SOME things. We need to get more. Much more.
