Disintegration of the Democrat Party
Evil destroys itself
If everyone stood back, set partisanship aside and dispassionately viewed the state of today's Democrat Party, it would be crystal clear that the Democrat Party of 40 years ago no longer exists. As the Left has ascended to control of the Democrat Party, rational, traditional value Democrats have been squeezed out, many of whom are now listed among the ranks of the "independents."
What are the common characteristics of today's Democrat Party politicial leaders?
Evidence of the demise of the Democrat Party is in plain sight.
Consider the irony of a party that supports federal funding of research to save premature babies while simultaneously funding the abortion of fetuses that are older than those premature babies!
Consider the audacity of a party whose President blamed the prior administration for everything that was wrong with the country during his eight years in office and then has the gall to claim that everything that went right during the three-plus years of his successor was the doing of his prior administration.
Consider the disgrace of a party who creates "sanctuary" cites and states in order to protect criminal aliens from deportation; and who eliminates bail and supports prosecutors who will not prosecute crimes.
Consider the irony of a party who used the power of federal agencies to spy on an opposition party's candidate for President and then, failing in its corrupt attempt to prevent his election, proceeds to pursue its "insurance policy" of continued spying and collusion with foreign agents to create false material leaked through government agencies to their friendly corrupt news media who dutifully pass it along to the public without question or hesitation. This corrupt activity became the blueprint for their "insurance policy" that was used by corrupt insiders to accuse the new President of doing exactly what the DNC and Hillary campaign actually did. This projecting of illicit criminal activities on their opponents is a major tactic in Democrat politicians' war on our society and its political system.
Consider that the corrupt Democrat Party improperly brought unsupportable articles of impeachment for which there was neither a basis in fact nor in law, and then improperly held hearings without full House authorization. The corrupt hearings denied the defendant President any representation to cross examine and bring forth witnesses. The hearing brought forth 18 "witnesses" not one of whom could substantiate a single fact that supported their articles of impeachment, yet they proceeded to pass hastily drawn articles of impeachment and then delayed their transmission to the Senate for trial! During this delay, their inept corrupt Speaker had the temerity to try to demand the Senate do the work of the House and continue to investigate the allegations rather than do the Senate's job of judging the merits of the case brought by the House. To compound their disgraceful actions, the Senate minority leader had the unmitigated gall to claim that the Senate trial was "unfair" because it did not call any additional witnesses (beyond the 18 who had already testified in the House) nor did it seek additional materials (beyond the tens of thousands of documents produced by the House)! The Senate minority leader disgraced himself as much as did the House Speaker for attempting to make political hay out of their disgraceful actions by, once again, lying to the American People.
News flash for Democrat politicians: The American People are on to you and your lies.
Finally, consider the despicable actions of the House Speaker during the recent State of the Union Address. Wearing white to enhance her own visibility in the background, an obvious attempt to upstage the President during his speech, she disgraced herself throughout the speech by grimacing, shuffling papers, shaking her head, and otherwise displaying a lack of civility and dignity to both her office and the occasion. Then, in a premeditated stunt, she committed a crime by tearing up the official copy of the speech intended for the House records. This childish tantrum is symptomatic of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
The torrent of lies by Democrat politicians, trying to create their alternate reality based only on their own fantasies fed by their TDS has clearly demonstrated to the American People that this party is no longer fit to be entrusted with any significant political power. It will have to be rebuilt from the ground up by people with integrity, honesty, and grounded in reality before it can be entrusted with power again.
Given the recent fiasco in Iowa that clearly indicates the Democrat Party establishment is determined to, once again, choose their nominee by any means rather than allow the people to make that choice, is there any course for this political party to avoid utter disintegration into chaos? Not so long as the present leaders are in power.
The chaos in today's Democrat Party is the result of years of their political dishonesty supported by misinformation and outright lies. Such evil inevitably destroys itself through exposure to the people. Despite the best efforts of a compliant dishonest news media, the American People are very clear on who is working for their best interests and who is working for their own partisan interests.
Such awareness portends the political disintegration of the Democrat Party as the People assert control over who represents them at all levels of government.
The Commissars of the DNC will determine who their nominee will be in 2020. Those who do not toe the line will be shunned. Look for that process to coalesce around someone who is not the choice of the Democrat electorate. This will further nourish the seeds of the Democrat's electoral fiasco in 2020.
Current Democrat politicians simply cannot be entrusted with political power. Democrat news media can not be trusted to tell the truth and fairly represent the political scene. And the People know it.
It's time for a new opposition party to replace the current disaster known as the Democrat Party. It's past time the corrupt news media mend their ways or see their influence continue to erode at a rapid pace.
Evil always destroys itself.

Biography - Bob Webster
Author of "Looking Out the Window", an evidence-based examination of the "climate change" issue, Bob Webster, is a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s). He is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
