  • Nice Ladies Leaving the Democratic Party

    08/17/2018 10:15:19 AM PDT · by gattaca · 34 replies
    Democrats are leaving their party more in sorrow than in anger, but leaving it they are, sickened by the Democratic Party’s hard left turn. Tens of thousands are telling their stories on the #walkaway movement’s public Facebook page. Their YouTube videos are a fascinating window into the innermost thoughts of kind, thoughtful people across America—all former Democrats. My personal favorites are what I call “nice ladies driven away by Democrat hate.” During and after the election, many women stopped buying what the Dems are selling. They come from every generation, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and region of America. These women...
  • Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: 'Don't vote for the ching-chong!'

    Detroit Metro Times ^ | August 16, 2018 | Violet Ikonomova
    More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit). Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as "ching-chang" and "the ching-chong" to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday's election. She's also said to have called one of Chang's campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

    The latest sign of the death of the "moderate" Democrat. Labour-Style Antisemitism Takes over the Democratic Party The latest sign of the death of the "moderate" Democrat. August 3, 2018 Ari Lieberman    In 2010, Britain’s current Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, hosted an event which facilitated a tour for a shadowy group called the “International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network.” The entire event was predicated on Holocaust revisionism and revolting comparisons between Israel and the Nazis. During the course of the event, one of the speakers likened Israel’s defensive measures in the Gaza Strip to the Nazi treatment of Jews in...
  • Democrats’ Impeachment Army: $110 Million, 1000 Staff, 2000 Volunteers

    Breitbart ^ | 7/31/2018 | joel pollak
    Democrats who are pushing for the impeachment of President Donald Trump will have $110 million to spend on the cause, thanks to the efforts of left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer’s organizations, NextGen America and Need to Impeach, will also have a combined 1,000 employees and 2,000 staffers as they take the case for impeachment to voters in November, according to Politico. Though House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has discouraged impeachment talk, grass roots Democrats favor the idea. Politico reports: Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million in 2018, making the billionaire investor the largest single source of...
  • 5 phases of the Democratic plantation

    wnd.com ^ | 7/23/2018 | Dinesh D'Souza
    The central premise of my new book – that the plantation defines not merely the origin but the entire history of the Democratic Party – will seem at the first glance, and for those unfamiliar with my previous work, far-fetched or even crazy. The old Democratic plantation system, after all, was involuntary; it was based on forcibly confining slaves. Today, however, the Democrats don’t have anyone penned up in this way, and they certainly aren’t forcing anyone to work. This objection, however, can be answered by recalling how the antebellum Democrats regarded the old plantation. Democratic Sen. James Chesnut regarded...

    The American Spectator ^ | July 20, 2018 | David Catron
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the darndest things. Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally...
  • Top Democrats Panic – Demand Trump Intel Chief Keep Info Classified on Trump Campaign Spy Halper

    GATEWAY PUNDIT ^ | 7/14/2018 | Jim Hoft
    Top congressional Democrats wrote National Intelligence Director Dan Coats to demand the Trump administration keep classified information on Trump campaign spy Stefan Halper. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.), and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), said the wider sharing of the information may put sources and methods at risk. Democrat leaders are panicked that information on the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign before the summer of 2016 will be released to the public.

    The Hill ^ | July 14, 2018
    Democrats are fighting among themselves over how far to go to oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and tempers are starting to flare ahead of a decision that could weigh heavily on the midterm elections. Liberal activists, who are closely aligned with the party’s base, are losing patience with centrist Democrats who are on the fence over Kavanaugh, a judge with impressive credentials and the approval of the conservative Federalist Society. But Senate Democratic leaders don’t want to twist the arms of vulnerable colleagues up for re-election in pro-Trump states, adding to the disappointment of activists. “There’s a great deal...

    A man I have known since grade school changed his name, years ago, to an Arabic one. He told me he rejected Christianity as "the white man's religion that justified slavery." He argued Africans taken out of that continent were owed reparations. "From whom?" I asked. Arab slavers took more Africans out of Africa and transported them to the Middle East and to South America than European slavers took out of Africa and brought to North America. Arab slavers began taking slaves out of Africa beginning in the ninth century -- centuries before the European slave trade -- and continued...

    Earlier today I wrote about the tough map Democrats are facing in the Senate. One of the places where Democrats hope to unseat a Republican incumbent is in Nevada where Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is challenging incumbent Sen. Dean Heller. One of the qualifications Rosen has repeatedly cited as part of her campaign for the seat is that she built a small business as a computer programmer which her campaign claims she ran between 1993 and 2002. But Monday, when everyone was focused on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported that there is little documentation from any...

    CNS ^ | July 9; 2018 | David Limbaugh
    People on the left are outraged when you question their patriotism, their dedication to the nation as founded and their respect for the Constitution as originally written, but they continually vindicate our concerns. The most recent example is the left's unhinged mania at Judge Amy Coney Barrett's inclusion on President Trump's list of potential Supreme Court appointees. In times of perceived crisis — and this is certainly one of those times for leftists — they show their colors, and you can color them militantly opposed to Barrett, in large part because of her Catholicism. And guess what else. Rumor is...

    And their only serious leader may be Michael Bloomberg, who will be 78 in 2020. It appears to have been the Supreme Court of the United States, the most unremitting and inscrutable center of government, that has been a deus ex machina in clarifying issues for the American voters in the run-up to the midterm elections. It is almost a mnemonic feat now to recall 17 months ago when Senator Chuck Schumer was weeping on the Senate floor, in emulation, he said, of the Statue of Liberty, over President Trump’s proposed curtailment of the rights of entry into America from...

    “With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families. Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice, who became the deciding vote in last week’s disgraceful decision in the Janus case..."

    Even though the Fourth of July is seen as a holiday of unity for all Americans, there were still some in the political world who chose to use the holiday to send a partisan message. In particular, Democratic Senator and potential 2020 candidate Kamala Harris tweeted odd political commentary on Wednesday’s holiday, erroneously claiming that “eight immigrants” signed the Declaration of Independence. ....The point is also strange because America was not an independent nation at the time and therefore had no immigration laws of its own yet. It is safe to say the internet reacted badly to the Democrat Senator’s...

    The Democratic Party is in an ongoing crisis, but most of the national media aren’t interested. They’d rather talk about the new “rock star,” Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Coretz, and ignore that the party is up in flames. Both Republican and Democratic voters are turning out in record numbers for their primary elections this year, according to analysis published this week by the Hill. democrats have a slight advantage by about a million votes, but that’s only in primaries. And in every general midterm election since at least 1982, Republicans have had an average of 6 percent higher turnout than Democrats....

    From President Donald Trump’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, there was a lot for lefties in the media and Hollywood to lose their heads over this month. Anchors and reporters depicted the “despot” Trump and those who voted for him as Nazis that were making the Statue of Liberty weep. Reporting from one of the detention centers CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King, on June 18, fretted: “The Statue of Liberty, I think, is weeping right now.” But that wasn’t as awful as MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew. On June 15 co-host Joe...

    There’s a lot of chatter about “The McConnell Rule.” There shouldn’t be, because it’s immaterial. The Senate gets to decide what to do with judicial nominations; everything else is just shouting. In 2016, the Senate was controlled by Republicans. A Democratic president sent that Senate a nomination it didn’t like, and that Senate decided not to act on it... This decision was dressed up by Mitch McConnell as “the Biden Rule.” In 2018, the Senate still gets to decide. Now that Justice Kennedy has retired, the Senate, which is still run by Republicans, will be sent a nominee. If it...

    “Beware the coming civil war!” Coming? Oh, it’s already upon us. And it has been raging for some time now. The once-serious political party known as “Democrats” has been hijacked by lawless lunatics who have been sowing discontent and fomenting violence for years now. Just ask all the families of police officers in America who have been executed over the past four or five years by militants inspired by the so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement. This would be the same movement that Democratic leaders are terrified of standing up to. When their last standard bearer — Hillary Clinton — made...

    When Mayor Bill de Blasio picked Bernie Sanders to swear him in for his second term, it was a sign, much like a groundhog signaling six more weeks of winter, that the heart of the Democrat Party was changing — even if Bernie himself still refuses to acknowledge that he belongs to it. And while Sanders-endorsed candidates have floundered nationally, they got a big win last night when 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez breezed past establishment figurehead Joe Crowley in the primary for the relatively safe 14th District. Nancy Pelosi tried to wave away the obvious Tea Party parallels by...
