Democrats Are Scared

The vice chair of the Southampton Democratic Committee complained about elected officials falsely accusing and intimidating other public officials for carrying out their lawful duties [“Not Watergate,” Letters, August 18]. This is in response to the recent raid on Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

I guess she missed Chuck Schumer threatening U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh on the steps of the Supreme Court. Just one example of the Democrats’ hypocrisy. In fact, the Democrats’ “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has reached new heights. Getting a magistrate judge (the same person who defended Jeffery Epstein’s employees in his sex trafficking case) to sign off on a search warrant to raid Mar-a-Lago is desperation extraordinaire. If Trump had sensitive documents and “nuclear records,” why did the FBI wait until now to go get them?

Because this is nothing more than a political stunt to again try and get Donald Trump out of politics once and for all. He scares the bejeezus out of the Democrat Party, and he hasn’t even announced a run for office yet.

We have midterm elections coming up in November. Every single Republican candidate except Liz Cheney (bye, Liz!) has sought out Trump’s endorsement. They’re all running on his “America First” policy. So far, those endorsements have yielded a 92 percent success rate.

Most people think lower taxes, a secure southern border, energy independence and tough on crime is a good thing. But the Biden administration has done the exact opposite of every one of those points.

Why haven’t any Democrat candidates running in the next election requested an endorsement from Joe Biden? No pictures together, no mention of him in their campaign flyers, nothing. Don’t they want to stand behind all his great accomplishments? No. Because there are none. The “Inflation Reduction Act,” you say? Since when does spending more money reduce inflation? That’s like dieting by eating more Twinkies.

Democrat policies have done nothing but make this country worse. Closing schools for a year and a half forced every kid’s grades down. They learned nothing. Spending trillions caused the inflation we see everywhere. Shutting down the pipeline immediately caused gas prices to rise. COVID restrictions on truckers caused the supply line shortages that have you waiting longer for everything from car parts to baby formula.

Bail reform? Don’t even think about a trip to New York City. Thugs are running rampant, and there’s nothing being done about it. The mayor, the district attorney, the city council, they’re all Democrats, and they treat the criminals like victims.
