Image result for decimated democratic partyLeft-wing Democratic leaders Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Democratic National Committee chair candidate Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., are seeking to rebuild a party that has been left in shambles by the Obama presidency.


The Democrats have lost majorities in the House and Senate and been obliterated by the Republicans at the state and local level since Obama assumed office in 2009. In a speech this week to progressive activists at a rally for Ellison's candidacy to lead the Democratic National Committee, Ellison and Sanders both said the party needed new leadership and noted that it had declined during recent years.


"Clearly, whatever the leadership of the Democratic Party has been doing over the last many years has failed, and we need fundamental change," Sanders said.


Ellison has as his main competition is Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who joined the campaign on Thursday.

Rebuild by splitting into a socialist and a Muslim party?
But this shows that the fight is not over and we need to stay alert and take the offensive, and the best way to do that is to convince and persuade with facts, not rants.

We need to offer the socialist/muslimeloving progs a one way ticked out of the USA, and in the process to revoke their citizenship, that is if they are legal.

Yep. On what basis could we trust any of them if 5-15% are already or will become radicalized? How can we tell which ones are already or will become radicalized? How many innocent, non-Muslim Americans must die before we decide to remove ALL the Muslims?

Ellison is a Muslim and if the Democrats think he is going to rebuild the Party they as a dumb as ever,he will take it deeper into oblivion,the Democratic party needs to be outlawed , they are destructive and have never done anything good for us and our nation, they proved that when they supported Obama for eight years as he went about trying to destroy us and everything we have worked so hard to build,people like Schumer and Reid were 100% behind our take down,Reid held up 150 bills sent to the Senate to be voted on but they were against Obama so Reid had them piled up on his desk and would not let them be considered for a vote,it was illegal but he thought he was above the law and he still does, even though he is gone,his attitude toward our laws is being carried on by the likes of what a lot of people consider an arrogant punk like Chuck Schumer who wants to threaten and browbeat any one who disagrees with his left wing anti American attitude.     

The Democrats were "pretty much" OK until 1932, when FDR was elected and began running America off the rails of freedom toward socialism.  At that time, America ceased as a republic and became, for all intents, a democracy.  That democracy is very near to catastrophic collapse.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy--to be followed by a dictatorship.”
Alexander Fraser Tytler

they still don't get it . focus on : heterosexuals [there are more of them] , no particular race [ white privilege] , creating jobs here  and you will get more votes than you could imagine

Unfortunately, these Dems have been successful enough to have created (with RINO help) a massive Welfare State. We conservatives will be REQUIRED to push as many able-bodied people as possible OFF the welfare rolls and INTO one (or two) of those many available jobs. Obamacare is likely the first test of this problem. Nothing will test the mettle of our side like taking away a government program already granted to millions- even an UNWORKABLE and ALREADY COLLAPSING program. Maybe that's the key: show how Obamacare is already on life support, and explain that we must kill it "as best we can for the least damage."

Obviously, Sanders, Ellison&Co think Obama didn't ruin DNP enough. If they want to start somewhere, start with calling it what it is. Socialist Party. Then ought to be interesting what it ends up as.

Rebuild? Rebuild what?

They still have the media in the bag. They still have Academia in the sack. They still have Hollywood and Dancing with the stars in their private outhouse. And they still have the republican party as their, now don't laugh, main opposition. They still own California and New York and Colorado and they still have the illegals voting for them. The wall has yet to be built, the military restored, Obamacare obliterated, Clinton prosecuted, jailed, Obama tried for treason and America is still a debtor nation, cops are shot, flags are burned, rich morons who play games for pay still take a knee, and fully half of the population would like to see Clinton park her big butt in the oval office.

I hope PRESIDENT Trump can lead the way in changing all of this. Time will tell, and quickly. Until then remember that Ryan is still Speaker, and McConnell is still majority leader. Both have tongues like a snake.

My advice to Donald Trump. Double down on security. Those who would do you harm are "Progressive Lunatics." 

"Sanders, Ellison look to rebuild party decimated under Obama"

Oh, yeah- THAT'LL WORK!!!  Just fine!  Especially since they will have Nancy and Chuckie running the Congress, and ol' Barack (with a staff of hundreds???) running a "Shadow Government" from right there in DC!!!  Talk about needing to DRAIN THE DC SWAMP...

Perfect example of the blind leading the blind.

My version is "...the blind leading the stupid..." or vice-versa.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
