What Has Happened to the Democratic Party?

In a disgraceful exhibition yesterday, one that will go down in history as a blight on American politics, the Senate Minority Leader Democrat Harry Reid killed Kate's Law, at least for now. 

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “The new mandatory minimum sentences bill would have a crippling financial effect. ((EDIT))  This is yet another attack on the immigrant community.”


LOU DOBBS, FOX BUSINESS ANCHOR: “I truly believe that what Harry Reid is doing here is pure evil. I believe Bill O’Reilly has it exactly right and I believe Ted Cruz has it exactly right and it demonstrates why we’ve got to go to regular order in this government.”

What Lou Dobbs is saying is that one Senator Reid should not have the power to derail legislation.

But even though Kate's Law will likely come up for a vote again, it seems certain most Democrat senators will not support the measure that is designed to protect all Americans from thugs like the guy who shot and killed Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

As you may know, that illegal alien had seven felony convictions and came back six times after being deported five times.

Nevertheless, Democrat Senators like crazy-left Sherrod Brown in Ohio oppose mandatory five-year prison terms for such individuals.

Brown saying quote, "The mandatory minimum sentences established under this bill would waste taxpayer money by increasing the federal prison population "

That's right, senator, convicted aggravated felons who defy deportation would be in prison instead of running around sanctuary city's like San Francisco selling drugs and shooting young women in the head.

Brown is a disgrace.  How Ohioians elected him is a mystery of the universe.

As Talking Points reported yesterday, Americans overwhelmingly support Kate's Law.

Think about it who would oppose this law?

I mean I just can't figure this out Democrat senators like Bob Casey, Dianne Feinstein, Patrick Leahy, Claire McCaskill, Bill Nelson … these people should openly embrace Kate's Law.

Instead, they remain silent and will remain so unless pressured by their constituents.

On that front I'm not hopeful.

Last week a guy from the Media Research Center went to a pro-immigration rally in Colorado.

REPORTER: “Have you heard of Kate’s Law?”

MAN: “No.”

REPORTER: “Have you heard of Kate Steinle?”

WOMAN: “No.”

REPORTER: “Have you ever heard of Kate’s Law?”

WOMAN: “No, I have not.”


SECURITY“I don’t like you asking the people here the questions that you’re asking.”

REPORTER“See!  We got it!  He doesn’t like the questions!  I knew there was something up with that.”

SECURITY: “You’re welcome to leave.”

REPORTER“Well we’re welcome to of course.  We don’t have to.”


SECURITY: “Well you’re not going to interview anybody else.”

REPORTER: “Why not?  How can you stop us?”

SECURITY: “Because I just said.”


We should point out that both President Obama and Hillary Clinton have also been silent on Kate's Law.

So we have to assume they oppose it.  Again, that's scandalous.

This is a very simple concept that would protect all Americans.

Mandatory prison terms would give law enforcement another tool to dismantle foreign gangs operating in the U.S.A. and would discourage convicted felons from coming back after being deported.

But once again, the Democratic Party will not support it.

It is beyond a reasonable doubt the DNC is now incredibly radicalized.  There don't seem to be any moderate Democrats anymore.

Because if you are a moderate Democrat, you are scorned by your peers.

And that is why Harry Reid can get away with killing Kate's Law, which would of course prevent even more killing.

My apologies to the family of Kate Steinle.  You do not deserve this.

And that's the memo.
