  • Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘tactics to defeat Nazi Germany can defeat global warming’

    Watts Up With That ^ | October 20, 2018 | Anthony Watts
    From the occasionally used cortex department: Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday at a campaign event that the United States’ blueprint for beating global warming needs to be the same as the blueprint the U.S. used for defeating Nazi Germany in the 1940s. “So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.” “None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 18, 2018 | by W. James Antle III
    Get ready for the undercard debates. Democrats are completely out of power in Washington D.C. - for now, at least - but that hasn’t stopped a record number of them from eyeing the White House. Up to 30 Democrats are considering a 2020 presidential campaign, a figure underlining the true level of ambition within the party amid a burning desire to defeat President Trump and one of the widest-open fields in recent memory. Sixteen Democrats were tested in a CNN poll this month, ranging from old-timers like former Vice President Joe Biden and 2004 Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry to...

    Cybercast News Service ^ | October 15, 2018 | 6:05 AM EDT | Susan Jones
    Stacey Abrams, the Democrat hoping to make history as the first black governor of Georgia, was asked by CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday if she believes the “Trump economy” has been good for Georgia. Abrams credited President Barack Obama, not Trump:I would say that the Obama economy and that Nathan Deal, as governor, have both done a very good job of shepherding our society. But the problem we have is that, while our unemployment rate has fallen, we still are a low-wage state, where you have a lot of folks who are working two or three of those...
  • College socialist angry after Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) nationalizes his phone

    A member of the Young Democratic Socialists of America at Georgia Tech University is furious at Sen. David Perdue after the Georgia Republican nationalized his phone while campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp: “Give me my phone back, senator” exclaimed the young man who wants the government to take other people’s property: So it’s only OK if the government takes someone else’s property and not your own? WEIRD! Also, these are the people who are pissed at Sen. Perdue right now: It’s going to be a really, really short “Revolution” if this is how they act. Sen. Perdue did quickly...

    The voters who are most amped for the 2018 elections look elite in nearly every way. They are Democrats, college-educated, and largely secular. They are likely to be women, but they’re not necessarily white or particularly young. These are the people who might post rants about Donald Trump on Facebook or harass their friends to donate to Planned Parenthood. They may sign petitions on Change.org or follow the Facebook page of the U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke, even though they don’t live in Texas. Maybe they attended the Women’s March two years ago, or the March for Our Lives this...

    Congratulations to the New Democratic Socialists: you’ve managed to transform what was once just disgraceful political Kabuki into the far more repulsive theatre of the absurd. The Free Dictionary - noun -  A form of drama that emphasizes the absurdity of human existence by employing disjointed, repetitious, and meaningless dialogue, purposeless and confusing situations, and plots that lack realistic or logical development. Actress Amy Schumer and model-actress Emily Ratajkowski pose for press before volunteering to be arrested at the Capital anti-Kavanaugh protest…and then tweeting about it to their fans. Still not absurd enough? How about this - blowback from the...

    Reuters ^ | October 5, 2018 7:19 AM | Belén Carreño
    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez faces growing pressure from within his Socialist Party to call an early election, before scandals besetting his four-month-old minority government undermine a surge in voter support. Riding high in the polls, Sánchez aims to serve a full term to mid-2020 as he focuses on approving next year’s budget and countering renewed independence moves in the Catalonia region. But last week, his science minister was forced to deny media reports he cheated on his taxes, days after a recording emerged of the justice minister using a homophobic slur. Two other ministers have already been pushed out,...

    <p>This week, a new series of Project Veritas undercover videos was released. The videos show federal employees boasting that they are engaging in efforts to overthrow capitalism from within.</p> <p>In one of the videos, Stuart Karaffa, a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations within the Department of State, told the Veritas investigative reporter “our goal is to resist everything, to F*ck sh*t up at every level.” Karaffa bragged, “I spend most of my workday on Democratic Socialist activity. I compose all my emails during the day, but I carefully wait until after 5:30 pm to send them. That way I can argue that my political activity is done on my own time. Maybe I’ll get caught, but it’s impossible to fire federal employees.”</p>

    This may be one of the most important articles New Zeal has ever posted. Please read it. Digest it. Act on it. This post proves a point I have long made: that Democratic Congressmen are willing to collude with marxists in order to promote socialist legislation and to influence the political direction of the United States. This is how the modern Democratic Party actually works - in partnership (often junior partnership, at that) with hard core marxists. Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D MI), chair of the powerful House Judiciary Committee has been caught on tape, meeting with members of the...

    Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson spoke Friday of a wide-ranging clandestine plot that aims to disrupt the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Speaking at the Values Voter summit in Washington, D.C., Carson tied, without evidence, a sexual assault allegation the judges faces to a group of people actively trying to undermine American democracy. “If you really understand the big picture of what’s going on, then what’s going on with Judge Kavanaugh will make perfectly good sense to you,” Carson said. “There have been people in this country for a very long time, going all the way back...

Another Democratic Socialist candidate won a tough primary race in New York City this week against an 11-term state senator.

    French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist LREM party is neck-and-neck with the far-right Rassemblement National, formerly the National Front, for the May 2019 European Parliament elections, according to poll results published on Thursday. The two parties scored 21.5 percent and 21 percent of voting intentions respectively in the survey by Odoxa-Dentsu Consulting. The conservative Les Republicains party came in third place with 14 percent of voting intentions, followed by far-left La France Insoumise with 12.5 percent. The Socialist Party of previous president François Hollande won just 4.5 percent, fewer than green party Europe Écologie Les Verts with five percent. …

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Thursday denied allegations he plagiarized his doctoral thesis as he battles a raft of problems in a week that has seen him lose his health minister over similar reports of academic irregularities. “The information appearing in certain media claiming the existence of plagiarism in my doctoral thesis is absolutely FALSE,” Socialist Sánchez tweeted just two days after Carmen Montón quit as health minister amid reports of irregularities in how she obtained her degree. Spanish media said Montón had been awarded grades without attending classes and that her final project contained plagiarized passages — charges...

    In a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on court nominees last year, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, 85, went on record that “there isn’t any good in Nazism.” Still, millennials and such should know that it does stand for something. Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei is the National Socialist German Workers Party, whose objective was Nationalsozialismus, National Socialism. Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek (1899–1992) had seen this storm cloud coming for some time. The socialist policy of Germany “was generally held up by progressives as an example to be imitated,” Hayek wrote in 1944 in “The Road to Serfdom.” He noted that while there was...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocked the GOP on Thursday for “corny” attacks against Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) that invoked his former band. The Texas Republican Party took a shot at O’Rourke’s 1990s punk band called Foss on Twitter this week after he refused to debate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whose seat O'Rourke is running for, by tweeting, "Maybe Beto can’t debate Ted Cruz because he already had plans." “Why is the GOP so corny?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Thursday.

Greenwald was the...
