Democrats don’t have a prayer in 2020 as it stands right now. Typically, Americans don’t vote a president out of office when the economy is booming and that’s exactly what’s currently happening. Not only that, but the Democrats have no one on their bench who can appeal to voters outside of New York City and Los Angeles. You really think Liz Warren, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker are going to come up with a message that resonates for people in Youngstown, Ohio.
The fact that liberals are excited about Oprah really tells you everything you need to know. There’s no one in the political arena that has a shot so they are desperately looking to Hollywood and talking about people like Oprah, The Rock, and Mark Cuban.
On Wednesday, we learned that a well known Democrat is mulling a presidential run. He ran for president once before and it didn’t go well. But, apparently, he thinks America likes him now.
His name is John Kerry.
From Washington Examiner:
Former Secretary of State and failed Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry suggested he is mulling a presidential run in 2020, according to a new report.
While discussing a peace process between Israel and the Palestinians with Palestinian officials in London on Wednesday, Kerry floated the idea of challenging Trump in 2020, according to Maariv, a newspaper in Israel.
Kerry, 74, pointed to the fact Trump was 70 years old when he was sworn into office and said his age wouldn’t be a problem if he were to run for office.
We are expected to believe that Democrats are excited about 2020 and they give us John “Iran Deal” Kerry?
Other than Hillary Clinton, can you think of a worse Secretary of State in the last couple decades?
Let’s also not forget that Kerry was an enemy of Israel. And that’s not just rhetoric.
Ben Shapiro wrote a great piece on that subject.
Here’s part of it.
From The Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech on his proposed plan for peace between Israelis and Arabs. His plan: blame the Jews, pretend that Palestinian terrorism and incitement isn’t representative of the actual Palestinian government, and then blather for 69 more minutes. His speech razed facts to the ground in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan.
Here were ten of the worst lies and lies-by-omission Kerry purveyed in his ode to lying and self-indulgence:
1. Equating Jewish Settlements and Palestinian Terrorism. Israel has been wracked by a wave of stabbings and shootings and rocket attacks from Palestinian terrorists over the last two years. Kerry spent a few minutes on that, but only in order to draw moral equivalence with Jews building additional bathrooms in East Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. “The truth is that trends on the ground, violence, terrorism, settlement expansion, and the seemingly endless occupation, they are combining to destroy hopes for peace on both sides,” Kerry said. This is nonsense. Before there were any Jewish settlements – when Israel did not control Judea, Samaria, or Gaza – the Palestine Liberation Organization called for the “liberation” of Palestine, meaning the complete destruction of Israel. The problem isn’t people building homes. It’s Palestinians murdering Jews, and refusing to accept that any home built by a Jew ought to exist in the Middle East.
2. “If The Choice Is One State, Israel Can Either Be Jewish Or Democratic. It Cannot Be Both.” This is patently absurd. There has been one state in the area between the Jordan and the Mediterranean for some 50 years. That state has been democratic. This lie rests on two absurd contentions: first, that if Israel were to annex all Judea and Samaria, Jews would be outnumbered by Arabs; second, that if Israel were to annex all lands, Israel would have to grant all Palestinian Arabs full citizenship or face status as an apartheid state. The first claim is simply false – Jews outnumber Palestinian Arabs outside of the Gaza Strip by a factor of two-to-one, and Jews now have the equivalent birth rate of Palestinian Arabs, and will soon have a higher birth rate, as Caroline Glick points out, meaning that Jewish majority status will increase, not decrease. Second, the United States does not offer citizenship to all the people living within its borders, or over territories over which it has sovereignty. Puerto Rico is governed semi-autonomously, but citizens of Puerto Rico cannot vote in presidential elections in the United States. Israel could easily grant green cards to Palestinian residents while also giving them local control of their governance without a national vote.
Conservatives will actually probably be happy about this development. John Kerry being the nominee for the Democrats would be great for Trump and it would basically guarantee four more years for the current administration.
