• If in Doubt … Democratic Convention Lays Bare What Party Is All About

    Surge Summary: If there was any doubt, the Democratic Convention this week confirms the radical Leftism of today’s NEW Democratic Party. Bernie Sanders’ words, Kamala Harris’ presence on the ticket, the relative silence from Dem leaders on the riots roiling American cities all provide a clear picture of the nature of this Party – and what it will be like if they ever gain control of the nation’s government.

    The NEW-Democrats’ Virtual Convention reminded me of a high school popularity contest.  Aside from the actual nominating process, the majority of the presentations were about a nice guy, Joe Biden.

    The shabby third night, for instance,  exhibited extreme, personal hatred for Trump – with virtually no specific information on what a more likeable Biden/Harris team will do differently or more effectively.  There was little info on how Biden/Harris will solve the mob rule, rioting, Democratic-run city/state lawlessness, police force disruption, and COVID-19 pandemic problems – that have overtaken our nation in recent months.

    And the level of dishonesty was extreme.  It seemed to be claiming Trump had allowed the coronavirus and its consequences to affect the health of our nation.  No thinking person is going to believe that! . . . Frankly, never have I spent so much time watching live-television coverage of an event and gotten so little out of it.  This is clearly not the Democrat Party of old – that favored Americanism and Constitutional equality-of-opportunity.

    Frankly, there can be little argument about Joe’s niceness and likableness. However, the election of a president should be about a candidate’s management competency – very much like the election of the president of a major corporation is primarily about competency.  The United States Presidency is, indeed, a position that requires keen managerial skills: planning, organizing, staffing, directing, motivating, controlling, innovating, etc.  In addition, it requires enormous energy and endurance.    

    Also, I feel there was considerable dishonesty in the presentations – depicting President Trump as incompetent and failing to respond properly to the challenges of the past 3 ½ years.  That is simply a boldfaced lie.  Getting a large group of presenters during the virtual convention to participate in that deception is amazing and disturbing – and strongly suggests the speeches were primarily written by, or at least influenced by, the same writers.  That is scary!

    To depict Trump as a president who does not care about people – or who only cares about himself – is a gross contradiction; in fact a gross deception.  The man gives his entire salary to charity, works sixteen hours a day, takes relatively few vacations, makes himself regularly available to the press for questioning, and goes out of his way to let the public know what he’s thinking about and doing.

    Again, I hope and pray that the American people recognize that the Presidency of the USA is not a popularity contest.  We are electing not only the President of the United States – but for that matter, the leader of the free world.  That takes proven competency and enormous energy.

    Did you see Bernie Sanders on TV Monday night? Stating that the day after Biden/Harris are elected they would move immediately to implement his (Bernie’s) extreme Leftist Philosophy of the new Democrat Party?  (It’s not the American Party of yesteryear.)

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice-president pick adds to this disturbing picture. Kamala Harris is the most Leftist Senator based on voting records in the Congress.

    Kamala Harris likes to represent herself as an African American Black woman. In fact, she is not of African heritage. Her father and mother are immigrants but not from Africa.  And Kamala grew up in Canada.

    The Democrats keep talking about bringing America together. What a bunch of bunk. All of our cities are rioting, burning, attacking police, etc. They want Americans to believe that they are bringing America back together. Neither Biden or Harris have said a word about the riots and mobs overrunning Democrat-managed cities and states.

    Meantime, Donald Trump’s record-setting rebuilding of the floundering Obama/Biden economy was unprecedented.  It was only stopped by the surprise invasion of the Chinese coronavirus in February. Fortunately, Trump repaired the U.S. economy once and He will do it again.
