Democrats to oppose Koch brothers, just not where they agree with the Democrats - 03/05/14

The Democratic Party will be launching a major effort to make the Koch family a punching bag, starting a digital campaign with the childish slogan, "The G.O.P. is addicted to Koch". While that's not far off the mark - the rightwing is to a good extent under the sway of the Koch brothers - what the Democrats won't tell their followers is how close the Kochs and the Democrats are on some issues and...

Debbie Wasserman Schultz on immigration: is she fake or dumb? - 12/12/13

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz ("DWS", D-Florida, chairwoman of the DNC) writes in a CNN editorial about immigration fasters on the National Mall. It's hard to tell if DWS is dumb, or if she's just fake and thinks her readers are dumb. I'll quote her CNN editorial "Delaying vote on immigration is immoral" ( peekURL.com/zBBpvAr ) and then discuss why it's wrong after the quote: Last week, I had the...

"Your Republican Uncle" misleads on immigration (Democrats, DNC, YourRepublicanUncle.com) - 11/27/13

The Democratic National Committee recently created the site YourRepublicanUncle . com as "the Democrat's guide to talking politics with your republican uncle" (link). Here's how it misleads on the immigration issue. They provide five immigration "myths", each followed by supposed "facts" to refute "myth". I'll quote each pair, followed by how it misleads: Myth Immigration reform will allow...

Democratic Party 2012 platform quotes illegal alien praising Obama on immigration (Gaby Pacheco) - 09/04/12

... immigration policies of Obama and the Democratic Party harm struggling American workers and struggling American college students. So, it's no surprise that a quote praising Obama on immigration in the 2012 Democratic Party platform would come from an illegal alien. Yes, that's right: the Democratic Party is buttressing their immigration position with the thoughts of a foreign citizen who's here...

Democratic Party 2012 platform on immigration: why it's wrong - 09/04/12

... section about immigration in the Democratic Party 2012 platform is below. It only has broad outlines and countless Democratic leaders have repeated these same things many times before. They were wrong then, and the platform is wrong now (see each link for the details): The first thing to note is that the platform includes a quote from an illegal alien praising Obama's actions on immigration. On...

Democratic Convention speakers list and immigration - 09/03/12

... whatever: you can oppose the Democratic Party's leadership's support for massive illegal activity. See the Take Action column to the right for general ideas.

When some of those listed below are speaking I'll be...

Jesse Ferguson of DCCC: why can't Democrats debate? (trackers stalking politicians) - 07/18/12

... Committee (DCCC): I'm writing about Democratic Party trackers stalking politicians and posting videos of their homes online. About that creepy effort, you say: "House Republicans have spent this entire Congress trying to hide that they're protecting benefits for millionaires and perks for themselves instead of protecting the middle class, but we won't let them keep it secret any longer." And,...

Democratic Party trackers stalk politicians, post videos of their homes - 07/09/12

From this: While most serious campaigns on both sides use campaign trackers — staffers whose job is to record on video every public appearance and statement by an opponent — House Democrats are taking it to another level. They're now recording video of the homes of GOP congressmen and candidates and posting the raw footage on the Internet for all to see... ...Wisconsin GOP Rep. Reid Ribble, who...

Obama's amnesty will mostly harm working Democrats (DREAM Act, immigration, construction, office workers) - 06/17/12

Are you a construction worker, an office worker, a plumber, a factory worker, or a cashier? Work at McDonald's or another restaurant? If so, there's a good chance you're a Democrat. And there's an even better chance that the DREAM Act that Obama enacted on Friday will have a negative impact on you. If you're an unemployed lower-skilled worker, Obama just made your situation all that much worse....

Julia Preston can't or won't follow the money and power (Mark Shurtleff, New York Times, immigration) - 06/15/12

... (and sometimes money)... * the Democratic Party also wants race-based power... * Shurtleff and the police chiefs want race-based power just like the Democrats. Figuring that out isn't rocket science. Yet, Preston isn't enough of a reporter to ask any of them about it.

In 1992, Democrats opposed mass immigration almost as much as Republicans - 06/04/12

... have: libertarians and today's Democratic Party leaders aren't that far apart on immigration, at least in effect. I believe that the chart can be reversed somewhat, but it's going to require lots of work. Here are some of the things I do to help reverse the chart, and I need your help with all of them: * Some Republicans use immigration as a partisan hammer, presenting immigration control as...

... laughing stock" (link) is the new Democratic Party site attackwatch.com at which concerned citizens can report rumors and supposed lies about Barack Obama.

Under "Immigration Reform Inaccuracies" AttackWatch claims "Republican media figures have...

Stan Greenberg is clueless why voters "tune out Democrats", as he promotes amnesty - 07/31/11

... people aren't flocking to the Democratic Party in these tough economic times. He opines that it's because the Democrats are associated with big government, and many people associate big government with control by special interests like lobbyists.

GOP politician's ad: non-Jewish white people "should stick together" (Dan Adler, Debra Bowen, Janice Hahn) - 05/12/11

... only reason why anyone in the Democratic Party would condemn it is for being open about just how race- and ethnicity-centric the Democrats are. The ad simply expresses the Democratic Party equivalent of the GOP's "Southern Strategy", and shows yet again why white people who aren't on the Democrats' gravy train should oppose them. The Democrats are a party that opposes white people - especially...

May Day 2007: Peter Prengaman ignores Mexico links - 05/01/07

... criticized by immigrant groups... Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean called the bill "insane" because it would require many illegal immigrants to return home before applying for citizenship.

Democratic Texas/Mexico/Aztlan flyer confirmed? - 10/21/06

I'm sure you all remember this classic: That flyer - showing Texas and Mexico rejoined - was supposedly passed out at the April 9, 2006 illegal immigration march in Dallas.

DSCC pro-American 'Secure' video never existed - 08/17/06

Yesterday I noted that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee removed their "controversial" video 'Secure' from Youtube. Today, it's gone completely. The previous URL was: dscc.org/news/multimedia/20060813_secure/ Now, the video at that page is called "Want A Different Course?" which should be available at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avPRG8s2haU However, that link doesn't work...
