    For too long, we have been forced to tolerate the intolerable. Time to fight back. Without further ado, let’s cut to the chase: The left in America is inches away from winning. Repeat: The left in America is inches away from winning. Evidence: Millions of students, kindergarten through graduate school who, due to brainwashing and indoctrination by a leftist dominated educational system, believe socialism is The Way and that “the planet” is in immanent danger of environmental destruction; millions of criminal invaders, entirely unvetted, possibly disease carrying, allowed to roam free, murdering, raping, stealing at will, and adding the coup...
  • Left-wing Dems in minority with new approach to spending (deficits no longer matter)

    President Trump’s 2020 spending proposal has drawn criticism from deficit hawks worried that it fails to balance the budget within a decade, but some Democrats are promoting a new economic theory that says deficits don’t really matter. The rationale, known as Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), argues that debt poses much less of a threat than previously thought. And while it remains far from the economic mainstream, the idea is gaining traction among left-wing Democrats proposing expensive policies like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has said MMT should "absolutely" be part of a...
  • Left or center? Democrats mull best options to beat Trump (they don't have a clue)

    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — As she waited to meet former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper at a recent house party in Dubuque, attorney Connie O’Connor was anxious about the liberal direction of the Democratic presidential primary. “I know a lot of people who don’t want to vote for Donald Trump but don’t necessarily want to vote for the presidential version of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez,” she said, referring to the recently elected progressive congresswoman from New York. “I think we forget those people are out there.” **SNIP** Yet surveys suggest Democratic voters are less eager to tack left. A Monmouth Poll last month...

    Last August, when she began her climate strike outside the Swedish parliament, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg was all alone. “I tried to bring people along to join me,” Thunberg recently told Rolling Stone, “but no one was really interested, and so I had to do it by myself.” But around the world, children and teenagers — worried about their future and exasperated by adults’ overwhelming failure to address climate change — soon took notice. Thousands joined Thunberg, now a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, on Friday, gathering at some 1,600 strike locations in more than 100 countries around the world...

    Make it a One-Way Ticket, President Guaido: A magnificent idea whose time has come: Sending Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and all other self-professed socialist Democrats to visit Venezuela to witness the kind of socialism they’re shilling, playing live in human tragedy. Venezuelan President Juan Guaido issued them a personal invite on Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Show on Monday.

    Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Twitter bio declares her the “Unbossed Congresswoman” for Michigan’s 13th District. While the moniker has roots in Shirley Chisholm’s successful campaign to become the first black congresswoman, nowadays it also could be seen as a blunt message to Democratic leadership: Nobody is bossing around the class of 2019. And that’s a problem for party bosses. On everything from the Green New Deal to impeachment to criticism of Israel, a squad of first-year congresswomen are flexing their muscle and posing an implicit challenge to Democratic honchos like Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Their stridently liberal agenda – and power...

    Despotism exhibited by Congress is a sign that America has already entered into a despotic tyranny that will end in the destruction of the Constitution along with our rights, liberty, freedom; that is unless we throw the Democrat socialists out Last Friday, the Democrat controlled house passed the partisan “For the People Act.” Although the bill isn’t over 10,000 pages long, like the Affordable Care Act, it’s still equivalent to reading a large novel, and once again Congress had to pass it to find out what’s in it. Unlike novels, the plot isn’t obvious to the reader, and the bill...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s grip slips as Ocasio-Cortez and friends throw a party, leave the grandparents at homeHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position. The radical young voters that Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team have no control over them. A big reason why, as I mentioned on “Hannity” this week, is that there is a wide generation gap between Democratic House leaders and freshmen Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New...

    We heard from the American people. They want a transformative House Democratic Majority that rejects the culture of corruption in Washington and restores transparency, accountability and unity in government. On Day One, the Democratic House honored that promise by introducing H.R. 1: the For The People Act – our bold, transformative legislation to put the power back in the hands of the people and restore the people’s faith that government works for the public interest, not the special interests.

    As widely reported in the press and widely discussed on social media venues, a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey indicated that nearly two-thirds of registered voters believe that the Democratic Party supports socialism; further, that a whopping 56 percent of those aged 18-24 and 48 percent of those aged 25-34 favor a “mostly socialist” system. Now, for those who may be exclaiming that it’s time to put a fork in America “because we’re done,” the latter two stats are admittedly pretty worrisome, even if one factors in the unreliability of some polls due to selective sampling and subjective interpretation. The...

    Full title: With Omar Refusing To Apologize For Anti-Semitic Remarks, House Dems Could Be Voting On Resolution Rebuking Her SheÂ’s not budging. No sir, sheÂ’s not going to apologize for her remarks that some have rightfully taken to be viciously anti-Semitic. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) once again got slapped with this accusation, which isnÂ’t her first time, over her remarks where she accused pro-Israel lawmakers of having an allegiance to a foreign country. Yeah, weÂ’re rehashing the dual loyalty smear, which for now, doesnÂ’t look like sheÂ’s going to retract. ItÂ’s caused heartburn for House Democratic leaders, whose Jewish members...

    The press has made a big deal about the new class of Democrats rolling into Congress and beyond, touting their 'diversity,' their 'socialism,' their 'sisterhood.' Most of us look at that group and see 'extremism,' particularly with the kinds of views they've presented, and the obnoxious gaffes they've blundered into, apologized for or not. They're new, after all. But there's something different about this batch of Democrats we haven't seen much in the past: The corruption accusations and investigations surrounding virtually all of them, most pretty solid-looking. Here's a short list, starting with a Daily Mail report, via GatewayPundit ....
  • Fascism Today and Where to Find It

    To see populism as the problem is to see the events upside-down. People wanting to take control of their own destinies is a good thing. The problem lies with the fragility or even nonexistence of lawful institutions — or sufficient forces to defend them — and with the oligarchic, incompetent, or authoritarian rule that provoked populist reactions in the first place. The criticism of "populism" and "nationalism" tends to become a criticism of "democracy" or even a corporatist protection of an institutionalised oligarchy. Thus, mainstream media's reporting that populism and nationalism are a threat is misdirecting the people from the...

    The year before what likely will be the most contentious presidential election in modern history is not a good time to suffer an identity crisis; but that is precisely the position in which the Democrats finds themselves right now. While the Party may try to put on a happy, unified public face in opposing President Donald Trump, the full throes of such an identity crisis are wreaking havoc behind the scenes. To describe it as a conflict of “multiple personalities” would not even explain the half of it. Democrats are in a complete existential meltdown. Let’s start with a quick...

    Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign spokesman criticized former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her team Monday, responding to former Clinton staffers revealing that Sanders demanded to fly private while campaigning for her in 2016. “You can see why she’s one of the most disliked politicians in America, she’s not nice. Her people are not nice,” Michael Briggs told Politico. “[Sanders] busted his tail to fly all over the country to talk about why it made sense to elect Hillary Clinton and the thanks that [we] get is this kind of petty stupid sniping a couple years after...

    We won't go awarding Wolf Blitzer a journalistic Profile in Courage just yet, but let's give him some credit for posing this question to Bernie Sanders in last night's CNN town hall with the socialist senator: "Senator, why have you stopped short of calling Maduro, of Venezuela, a dictator?"Check out the video to catch Sanders's stumbling response. First, a long pause, then, "well, [pauses again] he, I, I think it's, it's fair to say that the last election was undemocratic." Ya think? Sanders follows with this lame excuse for his fellow socialist: "there are still democratic operations taking place in...

    There is a most alarming thing going on in America – a slimy, poisonous lie that must hide in the darkness of misconceptions, the fog of deceit and misrepresentation to exist. It can never be exposed to the light of full disclosure and total truth or it would be suffocated by the knowledge of its history and catastrophic ramifications. Due to the failure of our educational system, a media that no longer leans to the left but has completely lost its footing and fully fallen head over heels in that direction, our ignoring the old adage “learn from history or...

    The socialism of Bernie Sanders has metastasized in the New Green Deal imposed on America by Ocasio-Cortez and is spreading gangrene like throughout the land The key to understanding how socialists posing as progressives are trying to take over Election 2020 is understanding exactly who Senator Bernie Sanders really is. Everyone who can read or write knows Sanders is a lifelong socialist who made it rich riding on the coat tails of Capitalist America. What some folks may not know is that he’s in the race merely to make Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden et al look...

    This is the part of the election cycle when the @GOP will paint the Dems as socialists to deter you from voting in 2020 for the party that actually fights #ForThePeople. They’ll drill the word “socialist” into our daily vernacular. Don’t be fooled. This is strategy not sincerity.

    Ugo Okere, a Democratic candidate for Chicago city council, said Thursday he believes democratic socialism should have total control over how people live. In a Thursday interview with the left-wing Jacobin, Okere was asked to define democratic socialism, and he gave a remarkably expansive answer. "Democratic socialism, to me, is about democratic control of every single facet of our life," he said. "Government is led by the people, not by big corporations, not by multibillionaires, and working people actually have control over who we elect to be our politicians, over how elections work, and over how our government is structured....
