Three hours ago, FoxNews reported that Democrats are up to their old tricks – bait and switch.
Their plan is to merely attempt to discredit GOP contenders in the upcoming elections this year. They want this to come off like the GOP does not care for the “little” people.
Rather than concentrating on good government for the people, Democrats are digging in to their old bag of tricks to actually deceive the people into turning against the GOP in the mid-term elections.
This is but another page out of the Saul Alinsky’s playbook of how to be a radical – the Democratic Bible.
Rules for radicals and community organizers:
“If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Their latest trick seems to rely on the rule below: This time raising the minimum wage to $10.10 and immigration laws.
“A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
Taken from the history books on the French Revolution, Saul Alinsky and his gang always sought out the poor, the uneducated, the un-productive to rally them around their cause; and to do the dirty work while claiming to be their friend and liberator. They promise them everything they want courtesy of the government – uh….the taxpaying citizens.
However, in the end, they disfavor them as well as the rest of the citizenry. And then they blame the negative results on the competition.
This has been a long time tactic of the Democratic/Liberal Party.
While even the Democrats do not believe this effort will pass, it is not their hope of winning; but their tactic is to put the GOP in a bad light.
They plan is to persuade the citizens that the GOP does not want poor people to make a living or for illegal immigrants to have any rights. This is their trick to smear mud on the faces of those who will be running as Republicans in the mid-term elections. That is the goal here and not the legislation.
The Associated Press reports: “The House Democrats are vowing to try a rarely used tactic to force votes in the GOP-led chamber on the minimum wage and immigration reform, a strategy that will likely fail but might hurt Republicans with voters in this year’s elections.
The tactic is known as a “discharge petition." It would require the minority party, in this case Democrats, to persuade roughly two dozen Republicans to defy their leadership and join Democrats in forcing a vote on setting the federal minimum wage at $10.10 an hour.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said fellow chamber Democrats will push the issue when Congress returns from its break Feb. 24.
The attempt to force a vote on a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws could occur in a few months.
Democrats think that a majority of Americans support both issues and that attempting to use the discharge petition will at least portray House Republicans as the obstacle to their success.
However, the discharge petition rarely works.
That was never more evident than last fall in the midst of the 16-day partial government shutdown. Though several Republicans said they wanted to vote on a spending bill with no strings attached, they ultimately rejected the idea that they would join forces with the Democrats.

Voters beware. Voters wake-up. All that glitters is not gold and deceivers are masters at twisting things and turning things back on others. This tactic is where one side creates the problem and then tries to blame it on the opposition.
Remember the evil one in the Garden of Eden. He instigated the sin, and then Adam and Eve bought into it and they were left holding the bag.
This reminds me of older brother Tommy breaking a vase and blaming it on younger defenseless baby brother Johnny. The Dems create problems and then blame it on the GOP. However, this year might just be the year – when the GOP will defend the people of the nation and not buy into childish games.
Other rules of old Saul’s:
“Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
"The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition."
These tactics seem more appropriate for a football coach than men and women elected to serve all the citizens of the United States in accordance with the Constitution.
Most Americans see each new election year as a time of optimism to finally put people in office that are true statesmen and women – rather than playing all those political games that only wastes time, effort, and money which ultimately leaves the citizens themselves in the dirt.
Term limits seems to be a growing idea in America. The President can only serve two terms; why not the House and Senate? This would help eliminate their perpetual efforts of looking toward their next election rather than the business of the American people. ~~~~
