Opinion: Did Democrats Elect Trump Tormentors Instead of Lawmakers in the 2018 Midterms?

democrats failure democratic Trump lawmakers midterms mobWASHINGTON, DC – Voters elect their representatives for one purpose, and one purpose only: to produce and enact legislation that will make their lives better.  They don’t put them in office to seek revenge.  But, Democrats will have a majority in the House of Representatives come January and many are hell bent on mischief and then some.

They want to cause as much trouble as possible for Republicans, in general, and President Trump, in particular.  They are “Trump Tormentors” and they are far from what used to be called, the “loyal opposition.”  They live only to make life miserable for the party in power, notwithstanding the negative impact it has on Americans and the American way of life.

It’s true that Nancy Pelosi [D-CA], who will likely be elected Speaker by her fellow Democrats, told PBS recently “for those who want impeachment, that’s not what our caucus is about.”  And, as Congressman Emanuel Cleaver [D-MO] put it during a Fox News interview: “our goal in Congress should be to pass policies that benefit the American people, period.”

But then, Rep. Jerry Nadler [D-NY] shouted into his cell phone during a trip on the Acela between New York and Washington D.C. that impeachment would be high up on his agenda when he takes over the House Judiciary Committee in a few months.  Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at the Federalist, happened to be on the same train, in the same car as Nadler and overheard the phone conversation.

The fact is that an impeachment attempt is top of mind for too many Democrats. A lot of progressives were elected to Congress this year and, based on their rhetoric during the midterm campaigns; they apparently want to initiate a movement to turn the U.S.A. into a new Union of Soviet Socialist Republics

Meanwhile, Nadler said last month he’ll also be gunning for newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Despite undergoing one of the most exhaustive investigations ever for a Supreme Court nominee, Nadler says he will further investigate allegations of misconduct and perjury on the part of Justice Kavanaugh.

And then you have Adam Schiff [D-CA] who says he wants to go open yet another probe into whether Mr. Trump conspired with Russia during the 2016 Presidential Election campaign.  This, despite the fact that special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating that allegation for nearly a year and a half.

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings [D-MD] also wants a piece of President Trump.  He says the president is guilty of “gross misconduct” in the way he dealt with the Hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico in 2017, among other things, when he takes over the House Oversight Committee

Are they jealous of how President Trump and a united Republican Congress in just two years managed to right the Ship of State after eight years of recession, mounting debt, rising unemployment and higher taxes?

It would appear that, in the 2018 Midterm Elections, Democrats elected bullies who are out to torment the president instead of lawmakers who seek a bipartisan approach to making America great again.  Perhaps President Trump was right when he said “The Democrat party has become an angry, ruthless, unhinged mob determined to get power by any means necessary.”

As the nation’s largest Conservative senior advocacy organization, our Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] is rededicating itself to the task of restoring a sense of decency and sanity in America’s political life.

Is this supposed to be a trick question or an attempt to justify the unnecessary loss of the House? Of course Democrat voters were voting for anything and anyone positioned as anti-Trump (really meaning anti-American when you get down to it) in the mid-terms. That is ALL the Democrat Party and its candidates have been pushing since President Trump won the election in 2016 and hit the brakes on the United States sliding into socialism. Democrats were certainly NOT running on real policy differences or offering any credible alternative solutions to problems, unless you somehow count offering “free” everything and somebody else paying for it, open borders and anti-rule of law messages as positive solutions. All anyone had to do was listen to virtually any Democrat candidate running for office any time in 2018 to determine what the Democrat agenda was focused on: Get Trump, no matter what it takes… Read more »


It’s not ok to call Obama the liar that he is in a congressional session, but it’s ok to completely disrespect trump in a q/a session.. Another liberal/socialist double standard..


There are over 80 members of the communist party in Congress and they should be removed and charged with treason , Elijah Cummings is on the list everyone named on the list are Democrats and if the Democratic Party is going to allow these people to be in there party the party itself should not be allowed to have any part in the Goverment under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 .

The next two years will be a study in how to commit political suicide on a party wide scale. The dims/progs/commies have set themselves up, once again, to fail miserably. I don’t think they are prepared for the outcome should they come even close to succeding. The voting debacle in FL, AZ, and GA revealed to the citizens of this nation exactly who they are and what they are willing to do for power. These actions were just the tip of the iceberg. I suspect the same types of behavior went on in other places, just not reported for whatever reason. Probably because the election supervisors were not as blatant about what they were doing, thus not drawing the scrutiny of observors. That is why the left won the seats in house. The election results just don’t make sense otherwise. They have overplayed their hand. They will continue to overplay… Read more »


Peelousi, (among others) have done absolutely nothing this past year in Congress, except salivate over becoming Speaker again! And we taxpayers keep paying their salary’s for this nonsense every year! Representative’s like her are selfishly drunk for power and don’t have a clue on HOW to be a SERVANT of the people. By their actions, Congressional representatives like her are criminally complicit in the Russian collusion made up hoax to frame Trump. But yet they get by with this criminal behavior. The REAL crime was committed by Hillary Clinton, Fusion GPS law firm, the DNC, the Obama FBI, the Obama DOJ, Steele (British spy) with the Russians! All kinds of documentation and email evidence! But they will not investigate because they are corrupt and drunk for power! Unbelievable, that these people are continually voted back in Congress. But what can you expect from a God less, lawless indoctrinated liberal progressive… Read more »


The Democrats are no longer the party they once were; they are bullies who are not working for the American people or our country, instead they just want power to fulfill their evil socialist communistic agendas and to destroy the greatest President we have had in decades. President Trump cant be bought. The democrat leaders hate our President because he has stopped the democrats from lining their pockets and robbing the American people. I pray for Almighty Gods intervention to bring about changes where the democrats arent able to get so high and mighty while gaining the house. Thank God He is in control and I hope soon that the democrats get that revelation real soon.


What can we expect from the 116th Congress now that the Democrats will have the majority? It will be a civil war over different ideologies. Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology. Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders. The left is… Read more »


The Trump hate is aweful! Sad part is all the “rino’s” looking to stab Trump in the back! Why would Republicans vote for a “rino” from CA to head them in the house? Democrats will take the lowest road to destroy America.


You are too gentle in your descriptions. I studied government and the actions of these senators and repres natives are clearly anti American republican principles. This should be faced squarely and up front. Mischief is not a word that even relates to the vocal leftist Democrats in any shape or manner.

We must face the reality. They are surely implementing their place in our government. It took Hitler ten years to infiltrate the reichstag. This has been going on actively since before and after McCarthyism.

We must see clearly.

If our children acted like the democrats they would either get a spanking or be grounded for weeks!

Reality of it all. The receding tide of conservatism is being ebbed by the rising tide of progressive liberalism. The unfortunate truth is that there will continue to be more voters who believe that government programs and socialistic liberal policies are their best chance for survival and that more of these believers will be elected into political leadership positions. This cancer is incurable and will continue to metastasize. The war for capitalistic conservative ideology and values has achieved victories during the current “Battle of Trump” but they have been hard earned and have emboldened our opposition. The battle will continue to rage in the long term but in the end the popular vote will prevail. To extend the influence of conservative thought, the battle needs to be fought at the grass roots level in communities through strong family and personal values and the honest factual education of our youth.

Despite Trump’s accomplishments, Republicans blew opportunities to put forth legislation stopping illegal immigration and replacing Obamacare. I fear the next 2 years will be endless investigations and groundless accusations. Blue states will try to make voter registration and voting more lax to steal elections from legitimate voters. Our great republic is in serious trouble.

I don’t get it. Aren’t these democrats conspiring to overthrow our Government ?
Isn’t that Treason? Why aren’t they being arrested for treason?


I would hazard a guess that the Democrats mentioned in this article are students and followers of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” The spoilage of our representative republic started 100 years ago with the beginning of the Progressive movement in 1916. The Russian Chancellor Nikiti Khrushchev said we would rot from within and would fall into communist hands like an overripe peach. Methinks he was right in his assertion. We are dying by our own hand.

We now CLEARLY have TWO AMERICAS — the RIGHT (traditional, Constitutional patriots), and the LEFT (progressive, Marxists & Communists). Time for martial law and a civil war — with our armed forces and sheriffs offices fighting for the RIGHT (i.e. the Constitution). The more we wait, the worst it will be.

We must draft a statement of loyalty to the US Constitution as written, and have all legislators and judges sign it. Hold them to it — and if they refuse to sign, oust them. It’s TIME. President Trump has the GONADS to force this — we’re all for it. GO… get ’em OUT.

Start serious investigations into Hillary, the Clinton Foundation, Huma Amadin, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder… ALL of the infidels. Put ’em in the slammer.


Consider that the new style Democrats are perfectly okay with letting Hillary run AGAIN in 2020, you can see how ridiculous their thinking (if you call it thinking) is centered. Instead of working to find viable solutions, all they can do is foam rhetoric. Take their “Medicare for all” program, when asked how they intend to pay for it, they have no reasonable answer other than it will pay for itself. They are more worried about how they can afford a fancy Washington DC apartment (trying to not use their own money), forgetting there is a price to getting the position and if you come from a close enough area, you can actually commute (the horror of using a public transportation system).
I expect to see very little legislative action solutions with this new group.

Lloyd fulcer

It sure looks that way

Marilynn Reeves

Yes they did


Yes, the democraps would prefer failure for all to conservative success,but the silent majority (conservatives) are just as guilty. The lack of standing up and being counted for true USA values, allowing the liberal takeover of the education system and the failure to stop their agenda forced on our children in schools has propelled this anti-USA culture. As a mixed race person with an Hispanic surname, I watch as ignorant Caucasian folks doom their own races, led by black lives matter (modern black panther party) about issues 200 years are treated as if they happened yesterday. Somehow failed to be recognized in their new history is that their own fellow tribesman captured and sold them to the highest bidders, and there were also slaves of every color and nationality. Now what will you do today? Hide your head in the sand or stand and proclaim your conservatism and fight as… Read more »

To a certain degree that is exactly what happened. DEMs are little more than a mob of Trump tormentors. They have no sensible action plan unto themselves, unless you want to get stuck on genderless bathrooms in grammar schools? Or convicts voting? Or rigged elections? #MeToo wet dreams? Or open borders? Or God help us! And the reason DEMs won the House, this pack of brainless mobsters, falls more at the feet of RINOs, i.e., our hapless REPs who have totally wasted two years House ($) control in favor of the trivial and not “the meaningful” while they had a full congressional majority. Stupid, no? The DEMs are imbeciles by definition and on purpose. Apparently the REPs have too many in the same category! Collectively they all blew it for the citizenry as they jockeyed for themselves (power) and therefore we have the defeat in the house almost by default… Read more »
