`The Force’ No longer with the Dems and branding won’t bring it back

imageNow that Nancy Pelosi has been dumped as House Speaker, she’ll lose no time pressing Steven Spielberg to come up fast with something to rebrand Democrats.

The most apt branding for Democrats would have to include the letters AA—not to indicate hey have collectively sworn off their martinis, but because according to their conduct, they can be branded as anti-American.

But reality and truth rarely, if ever crop up in the fine art of branding.

Pelosi’s longtime reliance on Hollywood as a source for inspiration has been legendary.

“She’s got The Force,” was the mantra of the apostles of the “universal life force” on her climb to the top of the heap.

And she had The Force long before the legions of caterers and florists started plans for the 4-day installation party of pomp celebrating her advance as first female Speaker of the House.

It was branding of a sort on Valentine’s Day 2006 when Star Wars sage George Lucas made a rare appearance with Pelosi and House Democrats.

“Lucas’s appearance proves that “the Force is with House Democrats” this year, Pelosi spokeswoman Jennifer Crider said before adding that “Democrats” might be more appropriate because “our Senate colleagues are doing very well, too.”” (Hillnews.com, Feb. 14, 2006).

Within the year Mid-term elections brought The Force into power. Pelosi as the first female speaker of the House had matrons calling jewelers for her signature multicolor strands of South Sea Tahitian pearls.

Back then, Grannies were hot, Republicans were not.

Somehow The Force wore off on Nov. 2, 2010.

The San Francisco Presidio, where Lucasfilms can boast its $350-million headquarters is part of Pelosi’s district.

The launch party for the film company’s breathtaking new digs, was referred to by Pelosi as a “wedding”.

In March 2006 when the World Affairs Council honoured Lucas with a Global Vision award, Pelosi presented him with the award, likening Lucas to renowned classical music composer Wofgang Amadeus Mozart.

“Like Mozart, George Lucas is no ordinary genius, Pelosi said.  “He is a magician.  He will be remembered as a legend.”

It would be a tall order for even Spielberg and Lucas combined to rebrand Democrats who have gone so far in helping Barack Obama with the fundamental transformation of America.

“The Force be with you” as magical as it sounds, is only the product of fervid imagination.

While Pelosi consults with marketing experts about building a stronger brand for the Marxi-Dems, we should review how she has already branded the United States of America the way some brand cattle.

Although former President Bill Clinton took most of the credit for it, it was Nancy Pelosi who branded the USA with the United Nation’s destructive Agenda 21, personally shepherding the Agenda through Congress.  On March 29, 1993 Pelosi introduced a joint resolution (H.J.RES 166) to renew the call for the United States to “assume a strong leadership role in implementing Agenda 21 and other Summit agreements”, eventually gathering some 67 co-sponsors for her bill, many of whom are still in Congress to this very day.

Long before Barack Hussein Obama threw the U.S. to the mercy of Russia, Pelosi spent her time converting American military bases to global centers for sustainability.

In a speech entitled “From Swords to Plowshares, delivered to the gullible House of Representatives on June 4, 1992, Pelosi was cheering the arrival of former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev as the Presidio’s first tenant.

“The National Park Service is actively seeking ideas for programs and tenants at this spectacular site,” she told the House.  “Last month, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev visited the Presidio to propose that the Gorbachev Foundation be located at the Presidio when the Army leaves.  In his words, “It is wonderful and symbolic that a military base is being converted for use by the people.”

“As the cold war ends,” Pelosi continued, “it is indeed fitting that this army garrison—one of the oldest in the United States—will be transformed to a monument to peace, environmental preservation and recreation as a global park.”

Even as Pelosi was making these lofty speeches and giving large swaths of America away to her far left enemies,  the news media ignored her alleged role as an investor in a real estate investment entity called Presidio Partners.

Nor did the mainstream media ask any questions of her involvement in the transfer of the Hunter’s Point Shipyard to the City of San Francisco or that her nephew, Lawrence Pelosi was an executive of the company which owned the rights to the land.

In Pelosi’s own words on March 21, 2004: “I have been working on this agreement for more than a decade, and I am proud we are near our goal.  I thank Senators Feinstein and Boxer, Mayor Newsom, and former Mayor Willie Brown for their work on the Bayview Hunters Point Shipyard agreement.  I also thank my good friend Congressman Jack Murtha for assisting us in this last round of negotiation.”

The Force was with the Dems alright, but it didn’t come from above.
