TRUMP SAYS DRAIN THE SWAMP AND DEMOCRATS STAND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT STATUS QUO …
If you ever want to know why Democrats lost the 2016 elections one has to look no further than how they have handled themselves following the election. Yesterday, in a closed door vote, House Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) 134 votes to 63. After Democrats got hammered in the 2016 elections seeing them lose the White House to Donald Trump, continue to be in the minority in the House and Senate, lose governorship’s and state house elections, the party that refuses to listen to the people opted to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants, Reps. Steny Hoyer (MD) and Jim Clyburn (SC). This is just remarkable. The Democrat party is no longer the party of the middle class and blue collar people, its the party of the power elite who are so far out of touch with the American people. Democrats in Washington appear to like the swamp and just voted back in the establishment just after a referendum election against the establishment. Just how clueless is the Democrat party, the GOP is certainly rejoicing.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House.
Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan’s 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there’s a growing appetite for major changes in the party’s leadership structure and messaging tactics, it’s not strong enough to loosen Pelosi’s grip on a liberal-heavy group that’s rarely challenged her authority.
Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats’ grim performance in this year’s elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi’s leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker’s gavel to the Democrats’ hands.
The critics pointed, in particular, to the party’s alienation of the middle-class Rust Belt workers, who flocked to Trump and secured victories for a long list of vulnerable Republicans down the ballot. Ryan, who represents an Ohio manufacturing district that’s struggled to keep pace with globalization and rebound from the Great Recession, said he was the right fit to make inroads with those voters.
Most Democrats disagreed, opting to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants — Reps. Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Jim Clyburn (S.C.) — in charge of efforts to improve the party’s fortunes heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
Newt Gingrich on President-Elect Trump’s … Calls for unity, Drain the Swamp and Let the Never-Trumpers Drift Off Into the Ashbin of History (VIDEO)
TIME TO GIVE IT UP NEVER-TRUMPERS …
Following the amazing and stunning presidential victory by Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich talks of a Trump presidency and the incredible things that could happen under a Trump presidency. He stated that a Trump administration is going to drain the swamp and make America great again. Like it or not Never-Trumpers, the Left, MSM and establishment Republicans, Donald Trump won a mandate election and when the electoral votes are all counted will be over 300.
About ‘Never Trumo’ Republicans, Gingrich said: “The little, whiny, sniveling negative cowards who were ‘Never Trumpers’ are beneath our paying attention to them. Let them drift off into the ashbin of history while we go ahead and work with Donald Trump and with the House and Senate Republicans to create a dramatically new future.
He added: “Their technique will be to say ‘Oh, be reasonable. Don’t push too hard. Don’t force the issue. Find a compromise with Democrats,” Gingrich said. “Maybe he shouldn’t name one of the justices who are conservative who’s on his list. Maybe he should find a nice moderate acceptable to the Democrats. Down that road is a disaster. And so we have to be aware that the danger is not that they’re going to actively fight. The danger is that they’re going to opt for honeyed words of subversion that undermines the entire movement to make America great again.”
