There is an op-ed in Friday’s Wall Street Journal titled “Joe Biden Can Learn From the Gipper’s Example of Unity.” The author is a man named Kenneth Khachigian, who was the chief speechwriter for Ronald Reagan. Just reading the title made me laugh out loud.
Has this man learned nothing from the actions of the Left in America, and specifically the Democrat Party? Seems so. Just the idea of Biden learning anything is preposterous! Joe Biden cannot, will not, and dare not learn anything from Reagan, who, along with President Donald Trump, epitomizes the Devil to the Democrats. Does Mr. Khachigian not know that “unity” to the left means abject submission to the will of the left? Does he not see what is coming to America for us conservatives? Probably not, so I think he might be surprised when we are trampled under the jackboot of the new all-left, all-powerful government in Washington DC.
Maybe Mr. Khachigian should read the editorial at the top of the page Friday, detailing what is in H.R. 1 in the House, which has been re-submitted and now has a good chance of passing. It’s the little things, like California-style election rules nationwide, including automatically “registering voters based on names in state and federal databases, such as anyone receiving food stamps or who interacts with a state DMV [how many illegals in those databases?]; same-day and online voter registration; expanded mail and early voting; limits to states’ ability to remove voters from rolls.” How about removing state legislatures’ role in redistricting? And that’s only the elections part!
In the bill I now call “The Leftist’s Wildest Dreams,” there are also: $15 national minimum wage; statehood for Washington DC and Puerto Rico; new disclosure requirements for political ads on radio and TV, requiring the organization’s top person to approve each ad, and list top donors by name; requirements for some non-profits to disclose names of donors of over $10,000 (and you just know that only conservative non-profits will be covered and not the biggest leftist foundations and groups).
We will really miss Rush Limbaugh, who “knows the left like every inch of his glorious, naked body,” who has been warning us for years about this behavior. Too bad the Republican Party, such as it is, has never learned, and never will.Published in
