Oh, So That's What The DNC Tried to Bury During Trump's State Of The Union
Townhall.com ^ | January 31, 2018 | Matt Vespa

The economy is booming, the tax reform package has spurred over 250 companies to dole out bonuses to some three million workers, more employee investments are coming, more jobs are projected to be created, and charitable donations are expected to increase from companies thanks to Trump’s tax bill. Apple’s repatriation of $250 billion, part of their $350 billion investments back into America over a five-year period is projected to create 20,000 jobs in the process. We've reached a new era, one of economic prosperity, which is what President Trump emphasized during the State of the Union Tuesday.

President Trump spoke of the good economic news to dead silence from Democrats. Job creation is up, with 2.4 million jobs created since the 2016 election—Democrats sat. They sat when the president announced we had defeated ISIS, touted low unemployment rates, fighting crime, uniting the country, and working together on a bipartisan basis. They were a legion of grumpy cats; still incensed that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Yeah, they’re not over it. Another area of heartburn could be the Democratic Party’s rather atrocious fundraising hauls. Filed during the State of the Union in the hopes of getting buried, Ken Vogel of The New York Times picked it up where he noted the Democratic National Committee had raised a little over $5 million, finishing the year with a whopping $6 million in debt. The Republican National Committee has no debt and raised over twice as much as the their Democratic counterparts. For 2017, the RNC raised $132.5 million to the DNC’s $65.9 million. Regarding cash on hand, the RNC has close to $40 million ($38.8 million to be exact), while the DNC only has $6.3 million.

The DNC tried to bury their latest FEC #s tonight...

Dec. Raise
RNC 11.1M
DNC 5.2M

2017
RNC 132.5M
DNC 65.9M

COH
RNC 38.8M
DNC 6.3M

Debt
RNC 0
DNC 6.1M (!!)

Heading into 2018, the DNC is less than $200K away from insolvency. https://t.co/ifRY2NYlPD— Michael Ahrens (@michael_ahrens) January 31, 2018

Interesting timing: @DNC files its @FEC report in the middle of the #SOTU, revealing that it raised $5.2M last month, but finished the year with $6.1M in debt. https://t.co/N9mSrDoE7v— Kenneth P. Vogel (@kenvogel) January 31, 2018

Yeah, I don’t blame Democrats for trying to use a highly televised event to file and hopefully bury this report. It’s quite ugly.

Despite the coming damage control media masquerade, the Democrat Party is in a world of trouble, and they’re inextricably affixed to an ideological “Tar Baby” of their own making. All they now offer American citizens is redistributive socialism, division, race-hatred, corruption, resentment, class-envy, despair, a crippled military, unearned entitlements, international weakness, economic decline, fear, governmental tyranny, hopelessness, subjugation and the intentional surrender of our national sovereignty and identity -— all of which are the antithesis of what built and sustained this great nation.

I almost blew beets when the overly-animated Droolin’ Joe Kennedy, who more closely resembled Tony Robbins on crystal meth, had the nerve to trot out the failed Obama trope of “That’s not who we are,” when in fact, that’s exactly “who we are!” This is why Democrats are so shamelessly desperate to flood America with illegal immigrants. They’ve lost the hearts and dreams of “Main Street America” and everyone knows it.

As criminal investigations come to light, I do not expect the Democrat Party to gain any strength during this coming year.

When listening to Kennedy’s response, he basically talked as if Americans are victims, while the feeling listening to Trump was a sense of victory.

So their answer to their $$$ problems is to act like complete partisan assholes??

Yeeeaaaahhh.....that’ll certainly make more people want to donate their hard-earned, TAX REFUNDED money to the DNC.

Someone posted on Facebook that Bernie Sanders said citizens are only getting some 4 cents per dollar and these bonuses/pay increases are meaningless?????

She and others took this as gospel truth. I find it hard to believe.

Q: Why did dims stay seated during the SOTU address.

A: They didn’t want all America to see Trumps boot prints on their backsides.

The proper response is, so they(theDems)are saying we need a bigger tax cut? When are the Dems bringing a bill to the floor?

The ONLY thing keeping the democrats in the game at this point is their control of the media. Once Americans universally understand that they are constantly being lied to by the press, the democrats are finished. They will then have to rely exclusively on their mastery of election fraud to gain office.

Yes, but haven’t you heard? . . .

The State Media ( democrat talking points ) say the democrat party will retake the House and Senate in sweeping victories at the mid terms.

I don’t see how they’re going to do with being bankrupt, but ok . . . .

Hillary tried to have the SOTU bury her comments about her protection of a staff abuser in 2008.

It’s just galling the heck out of the Dems that Trump won instead of Wicked Witch Hillary and ALL of Obama’s plans are working out so well for America.
