  • What's Democratic About Bernie Sanders' 'Democratic' Socialism

    04/15/2016 1:54:05 PM PDT · by Benny Huang · 5 replies ^ | April 15, 2016 | Benny Huang
    THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT FRONTPAGE MAG It takes a certain chutzpah to insist that food lines are actually a good thing--but that's exactly what Bernie Sanders did in 1985 when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. An old video of Sanders, a self-described "democratic" socialist, has surfaced in which he speaks favorably of the Marxist government of Nicaragua. The video was recorded in August of 1985, just weeks after he visited Nicaragua at the invitation of the left-wing junta. Sanders went beyond decrying American involvement in that nation's dirty civil war and actually praised the Soviet-supported Sandinistas,...
  • Why Ben Carson's Nazi Analogies Matter

    "Like many other political autodidacts, Ben Carson has an odd obsession with Nazi Germany. On several occasions, the pediatric-neurosurgeon-turned-Republican-presidential-candidate has compared the United States to the Third Reich. Mr. Carson has warned that a Hitler-like figure could rise in America. To understand what is happening in the Obama era, he recommended that people read “Mein Kampf.” And he won’t let go of the myth that the Holocaust would have been “greatly diminished” if Jews in Nazi Germany had been allowed to possess guns. To declare the United States to be “very much like Nazi Germany” is a special kind of...

    The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals. Communist Party chairman John Bachtell published his essay last week at People’s World, a “daily news website of, for and by the 99% and the direct descendant of the Daily Worker.” “[L]abor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Bachtell promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle”...

    Is it too much to ask that before the Democratic Party sells America out to the European Socialist movement, they at least enlighten the average American citizen as to their actions? What are we talking about? Over the past few years, the highest ranking officials from the Democrat party have been working strategically to advance something called a “Global New Deal” based on Progressive-Democratic-Socialism. The chief organizing entity for launching this new progressive socialist utopia is a group called the PES, or Party of European Socialists. Their organization is made up of the most powerful socialist blocs in Europe, including...

    The end of democratic socialism is at hand. The welfare states of the U.S. and Europe are financially out of control, spent and unsustainable. They have reached the point that Margaret Thatcher defined as the end of socialism: They have run out of other people's money. These areas of the world are about to change dramatically. Victor Davis Hanson has a piece in National Review Online focused on Europe. His comments, while directed at Europe, are also applicable to the United States. Hanson states: Five years ago, the European Union's account of itself resonated with end-of history triumphalism. In organic fashion,...

    From the document, - What is Democratic Socialism? – “We are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The process and structure of American elections seriously hurts third party efforts. Winner-take-all elections instead of proportional representation, rigorous party qualification requirements that vary from state to state, a presidential instead of a parliamentary system, and the two-party monopoly on political power...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) — Barack Obama set his sights on November's general election Saturday as he campaigned in Oregon, where he hopes to declare victory in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Obama has said Tuesday's primaries in Oregon and Kentucky could mark the end of his drawn-out battle with rival Hillary Clinton, and his campaign pressed home that message by announcing a symbolic return to Iowa that day. Iowa was the scene of the Illinois senator's first victory in the 2008 presidential nominating race, and his campaign noted Saturday it is "a critical general election state that Democrats must...

    American liberals are getting increasingly frustrated with the use of the term “democratic socialism.” But I’m getting increasingly fed up with the improper use of the term “liberal.” John McCain is a liberal. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, like all modern Democrats, are something quite different. For the record, the term “liberal” originally referred to people like Thomas Jefferson, indicating their undying reverence for “individual liberty” and “personal freedom” above all other notions and their opposition to government power. People who believe in empowering government to strip liberty and freedom from individuals in the name of some greater common good...

    His unforgivable sin is that he is a complete and unrepentant fraud! Like his spiritual leader, he sees America as only an evil empire of rich white folks who must be forced to their knees for the betterment of African-America. His campaign policy platforms say so. His spiritual leader has taught him this for more than twenty years. His wife became “proud of America” only when it began to appear that her husband might become President of a nation she otherwise despises. “...we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding...

    Clearly, based upon the voting habits of the average American ever since FDR introduced Big Brother’s “New (Nanny State) Deal,” freedom is just too tough for the average American. That’s the only way to explain why Americans are voting themselves back into bondage in an effort to trade their freedom for free-stuff. Freedom is worth less than free-stuff. Who knew, besides Marx and Lenin? It turns out that the father of Socialism Karl Marx was right, �Democracy is the road to socialism,� - at least in any nation where the people are ill-informed of history and apathetic towards their future....

    The cycle identifies eight stages of a process which demonstrates exactly how history tends to repeat itself. America finds itself in the seventh stage as it heads into the 2008 election, where it will decide whether or not to leap headlong into stage eight. Here’s how it happened and what the 2008 election is really all about.

    “Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.” - John Adams, in a Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, circa 1765 People have been predicting the demise of democracy, individual freedom and liberty, as well as resulting American supremacy, since the day American democracy was born. The most vastly distributed prediction has often been attributed to historian Alexander Tytler, dating back to the...

    When searching for answers as to how we got here in America - here being a steadily accelerating march into Democratic Socialism - there is plenty of blame to go around. Personally, I don’t see an innocent individual in the lot. Those who consider themselves to be the most politically astute people in America, conservatives, have once again been out-foxed by those they call ignorant. Forest Gump’s momma was right; stupid is as stupid does! Steeped in worthy principles, yes. Politically astute? You must be kidding… America has exactly the mess of a government it deserves because it always has...

    You want a liberal? - We’ll give you one! Almost every political pundit in America is asking if hard-headed “Christian conservatives” are really prepared to defect from their Republican Party in ’08 if they can’t get a conservative nominee from the RNC. But my question is; - when did respect for the “unalienable” right to Life, Liberty and Freedom, become an extreme right-wing ideal, held dear only by “Christian conservatives?” Who told RINOs that Life, Liberty and Freedom are extreme ideas? Who told moderate Republicans that they belong to a secular socialist party? America already has a liberal party pushing...

    Throughout world history, people seeking dominion over other people have always claimed that their desire for ultimate power serves some greater common good. They sell the notion that their personal quest for power is justified by their need to save you little people from yourselves. But in America, there is no common good greater than the "unalienable" rights to Life, Individual Liberty and Personal Freedom, the God given right to define and pursue Happiness through individual achievement, promised to every legal American citizen. "Unalienable" means NOT negotiable!

    FREEDOM, Calif. -- Traffic calming is not just physically hazardous. It harms our way of life as well. Most people have experienced nightmares at some point in their lives. One that’s quite common is to dream you are trying to get somewhere, but can't. One version of the nightmare goes like this: You are driving home from a very long day at work. The freeway is normally congested at this hour because few improvements have been made to increase traffic flow in decades even though the population of your town has grown significantly. Unfortunately for you today, the traffic is...
