Photo, above: Ryan Lizza says that 2016 Trump rallies had “an undertone of anger that bordered on menacing.” Really? The photo above was taken at the Trump rally in Mobile, Alabama in 2016. Lying is the liberal lifestyle.
It must really suck to be Ryan Lizza.
It is hard enough for a liberal weenie like Politico’s Lizza to be happy about the future, what with his utopian globalist kumbaya dreams all asunder, his party’s top three leaders amounting to a fake Indian, a full-blown communist who has never held a real job in his life, and a bumbling gaffe machine of a former Vice-President who by all appearances is not only guilty of extortion, obtaining benefit through coercion, but then bragged about it on video. All the while, the President of the United States is being impeached for employing diplomatic leverage, which is fully his right and duty to do.
So, Lizza attended a Trump rally in Des Moines, Iowa last Thursday night and was shocked at how “joyous the event was.”
Really? I have seen many Trump rallies and I have yet to see one that was anything less than a joyous celebration of America (see pic, above). I suppose Lizza expected to find tobacco-chewing, gun-toting racists in white hoods.
Whether Lizza was instructed to attend the event or simply had a personal desire to smell the Walmart shoppers he heard tell about from Agent Strzok is uncertain, but he left a changed man, not philosophically, just less hopeful for the future of his train wreck of a political party.
Check out Lizza’s begrudging admission that Trump voters are happy people and have every right to be, while, out the other side of his mouth drips the most acrimonious bile and unmistakable hatred and ignorance toward Trump voters. His misery is palpable.
What a horrible time to be a Democrat, second only to the loss of slavery during the Civil War.

DES MOINES, Iowa — I had not been to a Trump rally since the 2016 campaign. And the first thing I noticed Thursday night when Donald Trump and Mike Pence spoke at Drake University in Des Moines was how much more joyous the event was for his supporters than what I remember from four years ago.
In 2016, perhaps because Republicans were out of power and Trump was running purely against the system, his crowds often had an undertone of anger that bordered on menacing. But with Trump in power, presiding over peace and prosperity, on the cusp of beating two articles of impeachment, and dominating the news when it should be the Democratic candidates’ moment to shine, his fans seemed in a celebratory mood.
A fire marshal prevented many reporters from getting inside the event, so I watched Trump and Pence on a giant screen outside in 32 degree weather with several hundred Trump-loving-Iowans. They danced and raised their hands over their MAGA hats when The Village People’s “YMCA” played. They joined arms and screamed along to the chorus of Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA. Even for Iowa it was an overwhelmingly white crowd. But it was also reflective of the total takeover of the GOP by Trump in that it was old and young, and blue and white collar. A group of female college students from Iowa State took selfies and danced. When Trump mentioned his reelection, a bidding war erupted: “Four more years!”, “Twelve more years!”, “Thirty more years of Trump!”
Ryan has my heartfelt sympathy. I wish him nothing but the best, hoping that intense therapy results in a full recovery from his Magaphobia.
Can’t you just hear Ryan’s depression, anger, and sadness?….
On the eve of his likely acquittal and days before Democrats begin deciding on the person they will nominate to try to defeat him, it’s worth pondering whether there’s something to Trump’s statement. Why was everyone so happy?
There are a few serious reasons.
The first is that impeachment may end up dramatically expanding the power of the executive branch at a time when Trump and his supporters are instinctually in favor of giving him more authority and less accountability.
Ryan, you and your liberal brethren should take note and learn this very important lesson: You cannot bring a sham, joke of an impeachment before the American people and expect less than their disgust and desire to take as much authority as they can from that formerly revered institution on Capitol Hill. The Democrat Party has embarrassed America and weakened the lower chamber beyond recovery, in my opinion, at least while it is in the hands of Democrats.
My prediction in 2015: “The Democrat party is dead. They just don’t know it yet.” Is that picture becoming any clearer, Ryan? More and more, Americans are seeing through the conniving manipulators in the Democrat Party, whose corruption and hatred for America is clear. The Democrat Party’s attempt to remove a sitting president without criminal charges amounts to sedition and should be prosecuted as such. How is it not treason for Barack Hussein to gift Iran, a declared enemy of the United States and the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, $150 billion?
Following are the statutes for “seditious conspiracy” and “treason.” Please read them and tell me how I’m wrong.
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason
“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
Lizza continues his whinefest….
Impeachment has rallied the GOP to defend executive branch obstruction of Congress and a revisionist constitutional argument that places previously shocking behavior outside of the impeachment remedy.
The end result of both the Mueller probe and the Adam Schiff impeachment is essentially a Republican Party endorsement of what might be called the Fifth Avenue rule: almost nothing Trump does can have consequences while he is in office. Mueller refused to indict Trump, despite finding evidence he obstructed justice.
Newsflash, Ryan! Mueller found no “obstruction of justice” or he would surely have charged it. He did not exonerate the president (absolutely stupid statement by Mueller), yet he could not charge him, so like all Americans, President Trump remains innocent until proven guilty. Not only was the president not proven guilty, but there also was not a shred of evidence with which to charge him.
Poor Ryan! Someone buy that man a Cosmo and a bottle of Midol.
