The Morning Briefing: Dems Are Fear-Mongering Because They Think They're Going to Lose and Want Riots to Continue

We Have Nothing to Fear But…You Know

Happy Tuesday to all in Kruiser Morning Briefing Land. Are we all looking forward to seeing the best in America shining through in the next few weeks?

On several occasions in the past few months, I’ve written or remarked that Joe Biden isn’t really running like a candidate who has been enjoying a big lead in the polls. The Democrats, in general, haven’t been acting like it. I don’t believe it’s because they’ve learned anything from 2016 — they obviously haven’t — or that they are being cautious. No, I think that they worked themselves into such a frenzy after President Trump was elected that they can’t calm themselves down anymore.

At least, that was the theory for most of this year.

Now I’m beginning to wonder if the internal polling over there is telling them something.

Please do bear in mind that I’ve not given in to the irrational exuberance that most of my conservative friends and colleagues have been experiencing about the president’s chances. In fact, I became even more pessimistic when Trump went to the hospital.

The last few days, however, I’ve noticed that the Democrats are getting even more shrill with the one-two punch of the election and Amy Coney Barrett confirmation fear-mongering. Heck, even Joe Biden has sounded awake a couple of times. He can’t remember anything anymore, but there has been a little something extra in his voice lately.


On Monday, I watched him finish a quick interview by looking at a camera and saying “22 million people are going to lose their health care next month.” You could tell it was a talking point his handlers told him to make sure he worked in.

Anybody who watched round one of what will be the ACB circus knows that this has now become an important talking point for the Democrats here in the home stretch:

Because it’s not, but cool story bro.

The notion that ACA did something magical for health care is one of the greatest fairy tales that the Democrats like to tell. Matt had a great post yesterday about that nonsense. In fact, I know far more people who lost their health care coverage because of Obamacare than who actually got covered.

The Democrats have always stooped to fear-mongering, of course. Remember that Paul Ryan was going to kill your granny back in the day. As of this writing, I don’t believe he’s offed any yet.

It’s worse now though. They’ve shown that they are willing to partner with those fomenting civil unrest just to advance the progressive agenda. Forget that der Bidengaffer and Granny Boxwine finally got around to condemning the riots; they were both far too late to the party to make the condemnations even remotely believable.

No, they’re keeping the fear-mongering at an all-time high because it’s an integral part of their election plans. They want more riots if Trump wins. They want riots to continue throughout the interminable mail-in ballot counting.

The second-biggest component of the fear-mongering campaign as they prepare to not accept the results of the election has been the constant assertion that it’s President Trump who won’t accept them. Clever, no?

They’re backing up truckloads full of aspersions to cast on the integrity of this election.

They’re lying and what they’re doing is un-American.

This country won’t survive these Democrats being in charge.
