Progressive Democrats and Republicans Political Maneuvering for Political Expediency Part 2

 

I am compelled to admit that I miscalculated; Trump using the threat of governmental shutdown to move Progressive center/moderate.

The measure will keep the government open through May 5 and give lawmakers more time to reach a larger agreement on an omnibus bill that would include funding for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30.

From part 1

This means chances are Progressive Republicans win the 2018 midterms but lose House-Senate Majorities and Presidency in 2020.

It just means that our Representatives and Senators punted the issue to next week. Apparently, we’ll have to see if another stopgap measure is passed next week through May 5, 2017, or Trump is going to officially move Progressive center.

What do I mean by officially move Progressive center? I touched base on it here https://theproblematicmy2cents.wordpress.com/2017/03/28/tax-reform-debt-ceiling-and-budget/ (URL insert not included)

The central issue behind Trump’s budget proposal isn’t that it reduces or eliminates Agency or non-governmental organization funding, and it isn’t its increase in Defense and Military spending. The proposal is rather open ended.
How is this a problem? For starters, it means that for instance tax reform can simply strengthen governmental fiefdoms, public-private partnerships, and aspiring public-private mergers as Too Big To Fail institutions can be further enhanced through bipartisanship as shown by over 20 years worth of domestic and international policy. For another example, the economy is based on an Agricultural-Consumerist-Service economy, so it’s not in governmental fiefdoms, public-private partnerships, and aspiring public-private mergers to promote raising the debt ceiling to prioritize capital structure in the budget. It will promote the Agricultural-Consumerist-Service economy that caters to them.

Then, I discuss ACA repeal-replace original format here https://theproblematicmy2cents.wordpress.com/2017/03/12/repeal-replace-aca/ (URL not inserted).

As I pointed out here, the insurance industry is and of itself a created by law market…

You have Ryan a known Progressive Republican stating that ACA repeal-replace that is in fact an ACA ‘reform/tweak’ making it easier to transition into a single payer government-medical public-private merger backed by the President Trump and Vice President Pence who are stating to get to tax reform, revitalizing the US defenses, and etc require passage of Ryan’s bill…

If Ryan’s bill is any indication:
-Capital structure will not be prioritized.
-Deficit to debt spending will continue to rise.
-Purchasing power of wage will come closer to hitting a brick wall.
-As history states, shifting global balance of power is decisively determined by major conflict.

How can I come to that conclusion based on staff-cabinet picks and Ryan’s bill? Developing and promoting Aristocracy through developing towards public-private mergers requires destroying capital flight and preventing extreme populace discontent. Populace discontent can’t happen with tool’s utilized in Divide and Conquer.

My suspicion is that Progressive Democrats and Republicans will be examining their rank and file reactions as well as reactions by specifically the Anti-Trump and Pro-Trump camps.

Progressive Republicans:

After several halting responses, Dannenfelser leaned forward and lowered her voice. “All along the way, he was our last choice,” she told me. “But when you get to the end, to the point of having a binary choice, you must choose.”

The classic ‘lesser of 2 evils’ or ‘devil you know V devil you don’t.

But Wehner fears Trump’s affection could prove fleeting. “These are not convictions for him. He’s a recent convert on every one of these issues, from judges to abortion to other issues. And there’s going to be a pushback among more cosmopolitan liberals, including his daughter and son-in-law,” he says. “But for now, social conservatives have reason to be happy with him. And they are.”

There’s going to be major divisions in Congress as far as social conservatives are, and they truly argue Top-Down values countering social liberal values.

Since this address, Trump has won over some unlikely allies.

In other words, the veil is being dropped.

“Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of the last half century,”Mr. O’Connell tells The Washington Times…

“Whether it is pressuring companies to keep jobs in America, putting forth tax reform or renegotiating trade agreements, Donald Trump knows that he was first and foremost elected to put Americans back to work and boost wages. His maneuvers have instilled in the markets and consumers a palpable economic optimism,” Mr. O’Connellsaid.

As for Progressive Democrats:

The presentation didn’t focus on Democratic messaging and instead was heavily skewed towards money — how much the DCCC brings in, from where and how those funds are spent…

The report provides recommendations on how the DCCC should modernize its data collection and overhaul its media operation, according to sources who were briefed on it. The document is also said to criticize the organization for the lack of diversity in consultants whom the DCCC employs.

 

 

To translate, the DNC is mirroring the RNC to compel rank and file members to support their preferred agendas and objectives in candidates regardless of appointed and elected offices.

“The 2016 presidential election was unlike any other in American history,” Mr. Levine said, Courthouse Newsreported Wednesday. “We must ensure students in California are aware of actual and potential threats of hostile foreign governments’ attempts to influence their thoughts and opinions about our nation’s leaders.”

Thus far, unless I overlooked it, there has been no concrete evidence presented yet, and this ties into the DCCC 2016 autopsy report referenced above. Consider, if you lost not by the fault of your own Party’s actions particularly the nominee’s actions but a foreign nation’s act of espionage; would there be a reason to adjust your actions accordingly? Nope, not even a little.

Leading a conversation about young leaders with six local students, he took aim at gerrymandering, special interest money and low participation as the causes of what’s gone wrong in American politics, and said he hopes to help identify and break down the barriers that keep young people from getting more involved…

Ticking off economic inequality, lack of opportunity, criminal justice reform, climate change and reactions to violence, Obama said, “all those problems are serious, they’re daunting, but they’re not insoluble. What is preventing us from tackling them and making more progress really has to do with our politics and our civic life.”

Asked whether Democrats should work with Trump in order to get, for example, funding to improve mass transit (with transit issues on extreme display at Penn Station in recent weeks), Joyner said no. The opposition to Trump, he said, “should be across the board.”

But privately, many Democrats also worry the movement is whipping up a deep-rooted emotional and ideological fervor, much like the tea party did in blocking Obama’s agenda. Unpredictable and with no clear leadership, the liberal uprising could prove difficult to contain and may turn its anger — currently focused on Trump — toward the Democratic Party itself, just as the tea party fractured the GOP…

The moms sitting around the dining room table at Kozel’s house the day after the Kenosha protest shake their heads no, saying they wouldn’t want to disrupt government operations or break laws with civil disobedience.

“Our endgame is getting people elected,” said Kozel

But the movement is decentralized and diffuse, lacking a singular leader and splintering into multiple fronts. Ask more than a dozen progressive activists to define the goals of the Trump resistance, as POLITICO did for this story, and receive almost as many different answers.

It’s shaping up to be a very interesting 2018 election cycle, and we’re stuck trying to determine:
-Status quo continues fully funded.
-The Governmental Shutdown occurs to promote a fully funded status quo.
-The stop-gap funding measures become normal…

It would seem that it depends on who benefits:
-Those wanting Trump supporters punished and thus disenfranchised aka politically purged.
-Sander’s supporters particularly those who crossed the aisle under not supporting Hillary Clinton nomination in the general election of 2016.

Ultimately, we’ll find out what’s what in a week and the reactions to that result afterwards… It’s very rare for someone not to benefit from election or policy results.
