And, five of the seven least favorite involve immigration, proving once again that Trump was always on the right track when he attempted to slow immigration, but for some unexplained reason he steered clear of the issue in the 2020 race.
See my post yesterday at RRW where I explain that refugee numbers will be exploding in the coming year and it will depend on you and local organizing if you have any hope of saving your community from massive social, cultural and economic upheaval.
And, he knows how to use a family tragedy at just the right time. His son committed suicide on New Years Eve.
That is all I am going to say on that, and normally wouldn’t bother writing about weasel-like Dems, but because just yesterday on the first day of the unconstitutional impeachment trial of our President, led by Raskin, I wrote both at RRW and hereabout how important it was for you now to focus on your city/county and maybe state level (state level in some states, others are lost causes) as you FIGHT back. Washington is lost for now.
And, I want to show you what fighting back might look like and knowing your enemy is step one.
But, first, as I started my research on Maryland Democrat Raskin I came across this story from 2018. Raskin was on Martha’s Vineyard (of course) celebrating with the author of a book for young Americans—-Steal this Country!
Raskin is inspired by wildfire activism! Gee, but only when the wildfire comes from the Left I suppose! He didn’t like that wildfire in the Capitol on January 6th as he ran for cover.
We don’t condone the violence, but you know January 6th scared the ____out of the likes of Raskin who is okay with social unrest when the Left is doing the rioting.
The Long Arc of Social Change
In the summer of 2017, about 60 students participated in Maryland congressman Jamie Raskin’s Democracy Summer workshop program. The following spring, those students helped to organize a school walkout protesting gun violence that mobilized thousands.
That kind of wildfire activism is what inspires Mr. Raskin and what motivated Vineyard author Alexandra Styron to write a handbook for young people on protest and engagement. Mr. Raskin and Ms. Styron united forces this week on the Vineyard to celebrate the release of Ms. Styron’s book, Steal this Country, and talk about their shared goal to mobilize youth for progressive causes.
His son died. A week later he survived the Capitol riots. Now, he’s leading the impeachment case against Donald Trump.
You can read the whole gushing article yourself. Here are a couple of snips:
“My family suffered an unspeakable trauma on New Year’s eve a week ago,” Raskin said early Jan. 7, after the vote count resumed and neared completion. “Let us stop pouring salt in the wounds of America for no reason at all. Let us start healing our beloved land and our wonderful people.”
Raskin was “deeply involved” in preparation for the first trial, Schiff said. Raskin was “extraordinarily valuable” in discussions of possible charges and drafting the articles of impeachment that determine how the case is presented, Schiff said.
“He has been a dazzling force for justice, demonstrating outstanding love of country, dedication to our democracy and loyalty to our oath as he works to ensure that no one is above the law,” Pelosi told USA TODAY.
Despite his affable reputation, Scanlon says, Raskin is no pushover. He remains unperturbed during chaotic hearings when lawmakers sometimes heckle one another.
“He’s tough as nails,” Scanlon said. “It comes from pure civics, patriotism.”
