Democrats issue press releases insisting they want to stop Trump, and continue to obediently help him.

Wrote this 10 days ago…almost nobody seemed to have noticed that Dems were trying to give the Department of Homeland Security $50 billion at the very moment Dems were issuing press releases pretending to be mad at Trump for deploying DHS police to cities https://t.co/RNY9MNK6WB

Two weeks ago, the Associated Press reported that President Trump deployed unidentified agents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to Portland, Ore., where they were filmed getting out of unmarked vehicles and abducting protesters off the street.
A few days later, House Democrats responded by obediently advancing an appropriations bill that funds the department — with no apparent restrictions on such deployments.
“This bill as a whole will strengthen our security and keep Americans safe while upholding our American values of fairness and respect,” said Democratic House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, amid growing outrage at the situation in Oregon.
With congressional Democrats on their way to approving $50 billion for DHS, Trump administration officials are now boasting about their plans to replicate the Portland invasion in other cities. Those officials seem emboldened to ignore local Democratic opposition to the federal deployments.

And when they all get booted out of office, they will continue to hang onto that notion, 100% perplexed at how such a thing could happen.

This is what ya get for doing that. And anyone who says that if Vichy Dems controlled Congress and the presidency, they would all break out their mad progressive skilz – that is a big fucking lie. They would just start getting rid of progressives.

Oh, that’s right, they are the lesser evil! Not only that, but they are forgetting their history.
Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.–Mao
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.–John F. Kennedy
JFK was clearly familiar with Mao, and certainly didn’t want anything remotely like the Chinese Revolution to happen in the United States. One can hardly blame him. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party of today, which JFK would hardly recognize, has forgotten what he once taught them.
It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than to vote for what you don't want and get it.--Eugene Debs
Show me a man that gets rich by being a politician, and I'll show you a crook.--Harry Truman

I apologize to all of my fellow Americans. I was a slow learner – DemExit 2004.
Rights aren't rights if someone can take them away. They're privileges.
That's all we've ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges.

The Democratic leadership hates the left. They think they will be in power come January 1, and want to have the ability to go after dissenters on the left just as much as tRump does.
They in their own way are as big of hypocrites as the rethugs.
