Sanders-Backed Andrew Gillum Wins Dem Nomination for Florida Governor Race

August 29, 2018

Andrew-Gillum-DNC-Caro

Tonight, we proved what’s possible when people come together & show up to build FL into a better state for all. I’m truly honored to represent people across the state as the Democratic nominee — and I promise to stand up for everyday Floridians and the issues that matter most. – Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, Democratic Candidate for Governor of Florida

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s favored candidate, GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis, defeated state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in Florida’s Republican gubernatorial primary on Tuesday after riding the wave of the president’s enthusiastic endorsement to victory.

Meanwhile, the Bernie Sanders-backed Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum pulled off a major upset in defeating a half a dozen rivals, including former Rep. Gwen Graham, in the Democratic primary.

DeSantis and Gillum will face each other in November’s general election.

During a celebration event in Orlando, DeSantis thanked the president for “viewing me as somebody who could be a great leader for Florida.”

“Our victory is a good victory, anyways,” DeSantis said, complimenting Putnam on a hard-fought race. “But man, to beat someone of his caliber is a big, big deal.”

The president repeatedly implored voters to support DeSantis over Putnam. Trump offered his congratulations on Twitter.

“Such a fantastic win for Ron DeSantis and the people of the Great State of Florida,” Trump tweeted. “Ron will be a fantastic Governor. On to November!”

Gillum, Tallahassee’s progressive mayor backed by the Democratic-socialist Sanders, hopes to be the first black governor of Florida. His win came as a surprise, as Graham, the daughter of former Florida governor and Sen. Bob Graham, led in pre-election polls.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist star running for New York’s 14th district, praised Gillum for staking out liberal positions by supporting Medicare for all, legalizing marijuana and abolishing ICE.

“The progressive movement is transforming the country – and he proved that again tonight,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

…During a Fox News-sponsored debate in June, DeSantis played up Trump’s backing of his campaign, expressing doubt that Putnam adequately supported Trump. “I am proud to have the endorsement of President Trump in this race,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis, 39, is an Iraq War veteran and decorated military lawyer who has served in the U.S. House since 2013. He is a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School.

…Trump narrowly defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in Florida in the 2016 presidential race by less than 2 percentage points.

Allow me to clue you in concerning Mayor Gillum. Here is where he stands on some of the issues.

IMMIGRATION – Andrew supports a comprehensive immigration overhaul that includes abolishment of ICE in its current form to be replaced with a more compassionate and focused agency that actually keeps us safer. Donald Trump has turned ICE into a police and child separation agency — not a border enforcement agency that treats people humanely and compassionately. A decision between security or compassionate immigration policy is a false choice; we can have them both, and Andrew promises to fight for that as Governor.

GUN SAFETY (I.E. CONTROL) – He led marches on Florida’s state capital arm-in-arm with college and high school students to demand real action on this national gun violence epidemic. He helped register high school students to vote in Broward County — only miles away from Parkland — to ensure those students have their voices heard this year. He has met with students, families, and community members affected by daily incidents of gun violence across the state, including in Tallahassee.

HEALTHCARE – Andrew believes that healthcare should be a fundamental right, not a privilege. Instead, extreme politicians refuse to acknowledge that Floridians struggle every day to keep themselves and their families from going bankrupt due to the lack or cost of healthcare. Andrew believes that Senator Sanders’ Medicare for All plan will help lower costs and expand coverage to more Floridians. Gillum has promised to fight the new health care premium increases that are a result of President Trump, Rick Scott and Congressional Republicans trying to attack Obamacare.

Beginning in 2015, the FBI launched an undercover investigation into local corruption among public figures in Tallahassee. They put an undercover operative in place who hobnobbed among the rich and powerful as an Atlanta Developer named Mike Miller, who was there pitching plans for revitalizing Downtown with a project costing millions of dollars.

Per USAToday.com, in an article posted on 8/24/2017…

Many of Miller’s liaisons were facilitated by a local lobbyist, Adam Corey, and his associate Nick Lowe, a former Tallahassee Police Department officer. The duo set up the meeting at the Power Plant Café – where expanding the redevelopment area was discussed – as well as others with county and city officials, including Corey’s friend Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is running for governor.

…Two weeks before he met with Mike Miller, Mayor Gillum introduced former president Bill Clinton to a group of local Democrats at an exclusive backyard fundraiser.

The former commander in chief, wearing a blue pin-striped suit and pink tie, boasted about his wife’s success with black Southern voters and posed for pictures at $2,700 a pop. Gillum, already a key part of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and on her short list for appointments, stood behind the former president. His political stock was soaring

A year later, Gillum, 38, is a top candidate for Florida governor, but no one is talking much about the Clintons anymore. Everyone wants to know about that mid-May meeting over tapas and drinks with the undercover agent.

The mayor’s office has acknowledged Gillum met with Miller, an appointment with the undercover agent was noted on his calendar. His city commission colleague Scott Maddox, former head of the state Democratic Party, also hasn’t said whether he met the mystery developer.

Mayor Gillum’s Former Campaign Treasurer has been issued a Federal Subpoena. However details as to the corruption that the Feds are looking into are unknown at this point.

Mayor Gillum remains silent on the subject.

Florida is a unique state, there is no doubt about that.

It is famous for its “Snowbirds”, tourists and transplants from the Northeast who come down to the Sunshine State to vacation or to relocate.

And, of course. there is also a sizable Hispanic Population in the Southern portion of the state.

Looking at Mayor Gillum’s victory last night, it appears that there are a lot of Democrats who want to be a part of Gillum’s “Democratic Socialist Paradise”.

I am certain that the “Old Money Democrats” in Florida did not take Gillum seriously.

After all, they had the daughter of a Former Governor running against him.

The problem for the old guard in the Democratic Party is that the swing to the left of the Political Spectrum which they started has traveled all the way to the end of the left side, replacing Old Fashioned Liberalism with Marxism disguised as “Democratic Socialism”.

And now, the Democratic Elite in Florida has become a victim of its own device.

In their rush for Social Programs, Social Justice, and Special Interest, they created a generation of voters who, just like the silly folks in the Geico Commercials, want MORE.

However, the joke’s on them.

Marxism never works. It is always the Politicians in the Central Government who prosper. Not the average workers.

That is why it remains just a theory.

Who are the Democratic Socialists of America and What Should You Know About Them?

July 22, 2018

sanders-aoc-ap-img

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. – Norman Matoon Thomas (6 time Presidential Candidate, Socialist Party of America

The Associated Press reports that

A week ago, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t quite ready to consider himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a U.S. senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press it was time to join up. He’s now the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist.

Ringelstein’s leap is the latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank. As Donald Trump’s presidency stretches into its second year, democratic socialism has become a significant force in Democratic politics. Its rise comes as Democrats debate whether moving too far left will turn off voters.

“I stand with the democratic socialists, and I have decided to become a dues-paying member,” Ringelstein told AP. “It’s time to do what’s right, even if it’s not easy.”

There are 42 people running for offices at the federal, state and local levels this year with the formal endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, the organization says. They span 20 states, including Florida, Hawaii, Kansas and Michigan.

The most ambitious Democrats in Washington have been reluctant to embrace the label, even as they embrace the policies defining modern-day democratic socialism: Medicare for all, a $15 minimum wage, free college tuition and the abolition of the federal department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Congress’ only self-identified democratic socialist, campaigned Friday with the movement’s newest star, New York City congressional candidate Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old former bartender who defeated one of the most powerful House Democrats last month.

Her victory fed a flame that was already beginning to burn brighter. The DSA’s paid membership has hovered around 6,000 in the years before Trump’s election, said Allie Cohn, a member of the group’s national political team.

Last week, its paid membership hit 45,000 nationwide.

There is little distinction made between the terms “democratic socialism” and “socialism” in the group’s literature. While Ringelstein and other DSA-backed candidates promote a “big-tent” philosophy, the group’s constitution describes its members as socialists who “reject an economic order based on private profit” and “share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.”

Members during public meetings often refer to each other “comrades,” wear clothing featuring socialist symbols like the rose and promote authors such as Karl Marx.

The common association with the failed Soviet Union has made it difficult for sympathetic liberals to explain their connection.

So, exactly who are the Democratic Socialists of America?

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

At the height of the Cold War and the Vietnam War era, the Socialist Party USA of Eugene Debs and Norman Thomas split in two over the issue of whether or not to criticize the Soviet Union, its allies, and Communism: One faction rejected and denounced the USSR and its allies—including Castro’s Cuba, the Sandinistas, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong—and supported Poland’s Solidarity Movement, etc.  This anti-Communist faction took the name Social Democrats USA. (Many of its leaders—including Carl Gershman, who became Jeane Kirkpatrick’s counselor of embassy at the United Nations—eventually grew more conservative and became Reagan Democrats.) The other faction, however, refused to reject Marxism, refused to criticize or denounce the USSR and its allies, and continued to support Soviet-backed policies—including the nuclear-freeze program that sought to consolidate Soviet nuclear superiority in Europe. This faction, whose leading figure was Michael Harrington, in 1973 took the name Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC); its membership included many former Students for a Democratic Society activists.

DSOC operated not as a separate political party but as an explicitly socialist force within the Democratic Party and the labor movement. As such, it attracted many young activists who sought to push the Democratic Party further leftward politically. Among the notables who joined DSOC were Machinists’ Union leader William Winpisinger, feminist Gloria Steinem, gay rights activist Harry Britt, actor Ed Asner, and California Congressman (and avowed socialist) Ron Dellums.

By 1979 DSOC had made major inroads into the Democratic Party and claimed a national membership of some 3,000 people. In 1983 DSOC, under Michael Harrington’s leadership, merged with the New American Movement to form the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Harrington’s strategy was to force a “realignment” of the two major political parties by pulling the Democrats emphatically to the left and polarizing the parties along class lines. He expected that this would drive business interests away from the Democrats and into the Republican Party, but that those losses would be more than offset by an influx of newly energized minority and union voters to the Democratic Party, and that over time the Democrats would embrace socialism as their preferred ideology. Thus Harrington sought to establish DSA as a force that worked within, and not outside of, the existing American political system. Following Harrington’s lead, most DSAers were committed to electoral politics within the Democratic Party. They feared that if they were to openly move too far and too quickly to the left, they would run the risk of alienating moderate Democrats and thereby ensuring Ronald Reagan’s reelection in 1984.

…In 2008, most DSA members actively supported Barack Obama for U.S. President. Said the organization: “DSA believes that the possible election of Senator Obama to the presidency in November represents a potential opening for social and labor movements to generate the critical political momentum necessary to implement a progressive political agenda.”

In October 2009, the Socialist Party of America announced that at least 70 Congressional Democrats were members of its Caucus at that time—i.e., members of DSA. Most of those individuals belonged to the Congressional Progressive Caucus and/or the Congressional Black Caucus. To view a list of their names, click here.In the fall of 2011, DSA was a strong backer of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Said DSA:

“The Occupy Wall Street protests have invigorated the American Left in a way not seen in decades … So we have urged our members to take an active, supportive role in their local occupations, something many DSAers had already begun doing as individuals, because they believe that everyday people, the 99%, shouldn’t be made to pay for a crisis set off by an out-of-control financial sector and the ethically compromised politicians who have failed to rein it in.”

In the fall of 2011, DSA was a strong backer of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Said DSA: “The Occupy Wall Street protests have invigorated the American Left in a way not seen in decades … So we have urged our members to take an active, supportive role in their local occupations, something many DSAers had already begun doing as individuals, because they believe that everyday people, the 99%, shouldn’t be made to pay for a crisis set off by an out-of-control financial sector and the ethically compromised politicians who have failed to rein it in.”

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
 

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Well, most recently the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign.

However, one hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on this very idea.

The unworkable theory that it is based on is known as Marxism. No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

These new “useful idiots” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared and on the verge of allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only this year’s Midterm Elections but possibly the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they are on the precipice of becoming which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they are not becoming just any kind of fascists. They are becoming Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution will be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is facing a war for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

However, like the Marxists who have declared “war” on America and her citizens before, this new generation of “useful idiots” will find it very hard to win the hearts of average Americans.

For you see, we know Who gave us this country. America was built on a Solid Rock.

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25

Socialist Bernie Received Money From the Russians, Like Hil. Will Mueller Indict Them?

February 27, 2018

“The goal of Socialism is Communism” – Vladimir Lenin

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Bernie Sanders has seemingly struggled to address recent allegations that Russia’s campaign to interfere in the 2016 presidential election included a plan to boost his Democratic primary campaign. 

For well over a year, it was alleged that Moscow’s meddling mainly was meant to boost now-President Trump and harm then-Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. 

A bombshell Feb. 16 indictment filed against 13 Russian nationals in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe bolstered those allegations, in stunning detail — but also said the Russians sought to help Sanders. 

Russian nationals, the indictment said, “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.” 

The details create an awkward situation for the Vermont senator, as he is seen to be positioning himself for a potential 2020 White House run. 

Sanders, however, has yet to give a clear response on whether he and his campaign were aware of, or took action to address, the interference — like Russian bot social media accounts allegedly supporting his campaign. Instead, Sanders, I-Vt., has tried to shift the scrutiny toward Clinton’s campaign for not doing more to prevent Russian meddling.

“The real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign [doing about Russian interference]? They had more information about this than we did,” Sanders said in an interview last week with Vermont Public Radio. “They were supporting my campaign? No. They were attacking Hillary Clinton’s campaign and using my supporters against Hillary Clinton.” 

The answer to your question, Comrade Sanders, is very simple.

Hillary wants you to take some heat off of her.

The American People who live between the coasts didn’t trust her to begin with.

So, when the Uranium One Scandal was brought out and the Democratic Sponsorship of the Steele Dossier was made public, everyone with any common sense whatsoever, began putting 2 + 2 together and have figured out whom it was who actually “colluded with the Russians

And, it was not President Donald J. Trump.

It was Hillary…and YOU.

However, I have to hand it to you, Bern, you ol’ Menshevik, you.

While most of your fellow Democrats did not have the guts to overtly call themselves Socialists, even though they are, you just went ahead and did it. However, as you soon found out, by doing so, you limited your voter base in the 2016 Presidential Election to millennials, a generation of Americans who do not seem to grasp the concept that Socialism, in Marxist theory, is the step before Communism.

In fact, the only part of your Political Platform that they appeared to have grasped, was your promise to provide Free College Tuition and to bestow upon them other free stuff from the largesse of a Nanny State Central Government, bought for with the money of Americans who actually work for a living.

Your Campaign was doomed from the start, as the powers-that-be had already chosen Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Presidential Candidate and had placed a political system within the Primaries to ensure that it happened.

Not to mention the monetary aid which Hillary was receiving from YOUR “fellow travelers”, the Russians.

Now, you are asking what Hillary and HER camp knew?

What did you and your campaign staff know about the Russians’ contributions, Bern?

I mean, after all, you have contacts in Moscow.

According to the Liberal Website TheWeek.com, in an article posted on June 19, 2015, in which they brought up your 1988 honeymoon with your wife Jane in the former Soviet Union.

The honeymoon doubled as a diplomatic trip that Sanders made to the city of Yaroslavl, 160 miles northwest of Moscow, when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. According to audio that survived the trip:After receiving a rundown of central planning, Soviet-style, from Yaroslavl’s mayor, Alexander Riabkov, Sanders notes how the quality of both housing and healthcare in America appeared to be “significantly better” than in the communist state. “However,” he added, “the cost of both services is much, much, higher in the United States.” [The Guardian]

Another highlight of Sanders’ mayoralty was the ode to socialism that was written for him by poet Allen Ginsberg.

Entitled Burlington Snow, it begins with lines about “Socialist snow on the streets” and “Socialist kids sucking socialist lollipops” and ends: “Isn’t this poem socialist? It doesn’t belong to me anymore.” [The Guardian]

Shortly before the 2016 Presidential Election, you sold out your Millennial Followers by bowing out of the race and throwing your support to Hillary.

Coincidence? I think not.

The thing is, Bernie, I would be willing to bet that you know just as much as the Queen of Mean about those Russian Contributions…and you were perfectly fine with them at the time, as she and the entire Clinton Foundation Money Laundering Operation were.

And, as a part of the deal you made with her to “bow out graciously and give her your support” was that neither of you would rat on the other.

Your contrived cluelessness about the situation is nothing but the usual BS put out by a Professional Politician desperately attempting to save his hindquarters.

The only question now is:

Will Special Counsel Robert Mueller have enough ba…err…intestinal fortitude and integrity to indict both you and Hillary, and actually do something worthwhile, instead of indicting 13 Russians who will never set foot in our Sovereign Nation again?

Probably not.

But, I can dream of you two being frog marched to a prison van in orange jumpsuits, can’t I?

Until He Comes,

Before Hillary and the DNC Screwed Bernie, Bernie and Hillary Had a “Secret Agreement” – A KJ Investigative Report

November 3, 2017

160510183508-hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-cnn-debate-super-tease

There’s a difference between fair game and playing games. – Hillary Clinton

FoxNews.com reports that

The fix was in after all.

Last year’s presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was rigged by the Democratic National Committee – just as Sanders’ supporters suspected – to hand the nomination to Clinton, according to a bombshell claim by Donna Brazile. The onetime Clinton confidante, CNN commentator and former interim party boss made the explosive claim Thursday while touting a new book that could sever her ties to Team Clinton for good.

“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested,” Brazile wrote in a piece for Politico Magazine.

“By Sept. 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,” Brazile said.

The proof, according to Brazile, was a joint fundraising agreement document between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund and Hillary for America. It had been signed in August 2015, four months after Clinton announced her candidacy and a year before she officially secured the nomination over Sanders.

“The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised,” Brazile wrote. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff.”

Brazile took over as the interim DNC chairman in 2016 when Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out as chairman over the emails, which indicated the party organization unfairly favored Clinton over Sanders during the primary.

The ardent supporters of Sanders, the Democratic socialist, have long accused the party establishment of actively taking steps to benefit Clinton during the primary.

In a statement to Fox News, Wasserman Schultz didn’t directly address Brazile’s claims, but defended her tenure leading the committee.

“It was a tremendous honor to be asked by President Obama to serve as chair of the DNC,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday. “I am proud of the work our team did to support Democrats up and down the ballot in the 2016 election and to re-elect the president in 2012.”

DNC spokesman Xochitl Hinojosa, who works under current DNC chairman Tom Perez, told Fox News the party’s official policy is to not take sides during the primaries.

“The DNC must remain neutral in the presidential primary process, and there shouldn’t even be a perception that the DNC is interfering in that process,” Hinojosa said.

She said joint fundraising committees were created between the DNC and the Clinton and Sanders campaigns during the 2016 cycle but Clinton was the only candidate who raised money for the party.

The piece, titled “Inside Hillary Clinton’s secret takeover of the DNC,” is excerpted from Brazile’s forthcoming book, which is being published this month.  

After taking over, she said she went in search for “evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary.”

“I had been wondering why it was that I couldn’t write a press release without passing it by Brooklyn,” she wrote. “Well, here was the answer.”

It’s typical, she said, for candidates to make such arrangements with party organizations – but after they’ve won the nomination. Brazile said the arrangement does not appear to be “illegal, but it sure looked unethical.”

“If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead,” she said. “This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”

Sanders has not yet commented on Brazile’s story, but other progressives are expressing outrage.

During an afternoon appearance on CNN, Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another favorite of the liberal base, said “yes” when asked if she thinks the primary was rigged.

“This is a real problem,” she told anchor Jake Tapper. “What we’ve got to do, as Democrats, now is we’ve got to hold this party accountable.”

Before the agreement to screw Bernie was signed in August of 2015, another “secret agreement” had occurred, as I reported in a post titled “WikiLeaks Reveals Romantic Triangle: Millinneals Loved Bernie, Bernie Loved Hillary, Bernie Sold Out Millennials”, on November 6, 2016, just two days before the election.

According to heatstreet.com,

Emails published by WikiLeaks suggest that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had a secret “agreement” during the Democratic primary.

In a May 2015 email exchange, top Clinton campaign aides discussed “Sanders criticism” after Hillary’s primary opponent attacked the Clintons over their extreme wealth by suggesting that they “hustle money.”

When asked about the Clintons’ wealth during an interview with CNBC, Sanders had some harsh words:

Theoretically you can be a multibillionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emailed campaign chairman John Podesta to express his displeasure with Sanders’ remarks, and suggested that Sanders had violated an “agreement” of some kind between the campaigns.

“This isn’t in keep [with] the agreement,” Mook wrote. “Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch–or did you establish a direct line [with] him?”

The “Welch” referred to here is presumably Rep. Peter Welch (D., Vt.), one of the first Democratic lawmakers to publicly endorse Sanders.

So, Bernie had already planned to screw his supporters and Hillary and the DNC then screwed him.

Bernie Sanders, “Evangelist” of the failed political ideology of Marxism, member of the rapidly tanking American Political Party known as “Democrats”,  basically appealed to the collegiate and “slacker” vote, the MTV Generation, still living in Mom’s Basement, who salivate over the vision of “money for nothing and their chicks for free”.

The Socialist Paradise, which Bernie Sanders offered Millennials, is nothing new.

Ask the countries of Venezuela and Greece, as they burn to the ground, their hopes and dreams piled on top of a “Democratic Socialist” Pyre of their own making.

What Bernie’s collective hive-mind of group-thinking followers never seemed to grasp was the reality that Marxism has NEVER worked, anywhere that it has been tried.

Man’s own greed and corruption, as in the case of the old Russian Politboro, and Bernie Sanders, himself, always gets in the way of their dream for a Socialist Utopia.

That is the reason that Marxism remains a THEORY…and a failed one, at that.

But, I digress…

From the time that she spent behind the scenes of her husband’s political career in Arkansas to the days she occupied the White House as “Co-President” to her days as Senator from the State of New York to this very moment, Hillary Clinton has engaged in political activities involving corruption and downright criminality that would make Machiavelli blush.

Now that more of these criminal activities are coming to light, such as the Uranium One Scandal and her duplicitous dealings during her failed Presidential Campaign, Americans should breathe a sigh of relief that this Modern Madame Bovary did not succeed in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America,

Just like the original Madame Bovary, she would have drained the very life’s blood out of our wonderful, vibrant country, to the benefit of no one but herself.

Hillary Clinton herself said,

There’s a certain consistency to who I am and what I do, and I think people have finally said, ‘Well, you know, I kinda get her now.’ I’ve actually had people say that to me.

The American People “got you” alright, Hillary.

That is why you lost.

Thank God.

The Republican Baseball Team Practice Shooting and The Consequences of Hateful Rhetoric, Propaganda, and Fake News

June 15, 2017

shot-gop-scalise

When I woke up yesterday morning, it seemed as if it was going to be just another day.

Then I turned on Fox and Friends.

Unfolding before my eyes was the unthinkable…

There had been a mass shooting at the practice field of the Republican Congressional Baseball Team, as they got ready for the annual Congressional Baseball Game benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

At first, I thought that it was another “Lone Wolf Homegrown Radical Islamic Terrorist”.

Boy, was I wrong.

Last night, after getting home from work, I found out additional details about the horrible attack and the fact that Representative Steve Scalise remained in critical condition.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains in critical condition and needs further surgery after he was shot Wednesday during a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., according to the hospital where he is being treated. 

MedStar Washington Hospital said in a statement late Wednesday that Scalise was shot once in the left hip. 

“The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding,” the statement said. “He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion.”

Scalise was one of four people shot by James T. Hodgkinson as they prepared for Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game between the Republicans and Democrats.

“I’ve seen him a couple of times like in the Superdome and I often wondered, ‘Well, why in the hell did he have all those security people with him?” Louisiana Senate President John Alario said.

“I see why now,” Alario added. “It was an abundance of caution. I’m glad they did it.”

The psychopath who did this was not Islamic, nor was he some sort of “gun nut” from the Heartland.

He was a Liberal.

Per thesmokinggun.com

The gunman who opened fire this morning (Wednesday) on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”The accused shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, posted a link to a Change.org petition in late-March that included the notation that, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

Hodgkinson’s Facebook page includes numerous photos of Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Hodgkinson appears to have strongly supported during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. In posts last August, Hodgkinson wrote, “I want Bernie to Win the White House” and “Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite.”

In a statement, Sanders said that he had been informed that Hodgkinson “apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign,” adding that, “I am sickened by this despicable act…Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

According to Hodgkinson’s Facebook page, he is a member of numerous left-leaning online groups, including The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans; Rachel Maddow For President 2020; Sanders For President 2020; Terminate The Republican Party; and Donald Trump is not my President.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois resident, was killed when police returned fire this morning.

Even since Donald J. Trump was elected President, there has been an outpouring of anger, rage, and all-consuming hatred by the American Left that has dwarfed any political reaction that I have ever borne witness to in my 58 years on God’s Green Earth.

Some of it has indeed been staged in “Astroturf” protests, funded by George Soros and his Open Society Institute.

The rest of the over-the-top hatred can been found on the Internet, in the comment sections of Political Websites and on Facebook in individual Newsfeeds and on Political Pages, such as the ones mentioned in the Smoking Gun article.

There is a total divided, rancid political atmosphere in America, which has been steadily growing in strength and oppression for several decades.

Perhaps it is due to a coarsening in our society.

Perhaps it is due to children not receiving instruction “in the way in which they should go”.

Or, just perhaps, it is the fault of a political ideology which has foresworn the patriotism of their forefathers in order to embrace the radical socialism of Marx and Alinsky.

Now, most of the Far Left nut jobs that you run into on the Internet and on Facebook Political Pages would not go out and shoot someone. That would require them to be motivated enough to leave their Mom’s Basement and actually stand up to someone in the real world.

However, this Liberal nut job was different.

He actually had worked for a living.

However, like those Internet Trolls which I have been speaking of, this psychopath became totally immersed in the anti-Trump hatred being championed and disseminated through not only the Main Stream Media, but the Social Media, as well.

Being an unstable person to begin with, all of this hateful rhetoric led him to take violent action, doing irreparable harm.

Liberals cannot blame Booosh! for the horrors of yesterday morning. Nor can they lay the blame on inanimate automatic weapons.

They cannot even blame the shootings on President Trump.

What we have been seeing on Facebook Political Pages and Twitter has now been taken to the next step. This is on the out- of-control Left.

However, don’t expect the Liberal Elite to take any responsibility for it.

That would require ethics, morals…and a conscience.

Which, as evidenced by some of their reactions yesterday…are no longer a Liberal priority.

WikiLeaks Reveals Romantic Triangle: Millinneals Loved Bernie, Bernie Loved Hillary, Bernie Sold Out Millennials

November 6, 2016

Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. – Will Rogers

Foxnews.com reports that

AMES, Iowa –  Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly finished second this winter in the state’s Democratic caucuses, then left Iowa in a February snowstorm as a contender. He returned Saturday on a warm autumn day to Iowa State University as a surrogate, offering his young, fervent supporters a more difficult pitch — vote for Hillary Clinton.  

Some of his devotees remain unconvinced, even those the Clinton campaign selected to speak at this Clinton campaign event.

“She doesn’t care about us. Voting for a lesser of two evils, there’s no point,” Kaleb Van Fosson, a sophomore and Sanders supporter, said to the small crowd.

After drawing light applause, Clinton campaign staff quickly escorted Van Fosson from the stage, as he criticized Clinton for her ties to financial institutions.

“I got a call the other day asking me if I wanted to speak for Hillary, basically they wanted to use me like a puppet,” Van Fosson told Fox News. “Trump’s not any better, but Hillary Clinton is still terrible.”

Others in attendance agreed with Van Fosson, though most in the crowd appeared supportive of the Democratic nominee.

“He’s made it evidently clear that Hillary Clinton is the right choice and over the summer,” said Devon Graham, a local Sanders supporter.  “I went fully behind Hillary and I’m really excited for her as a candidate but also excited that Bernie is supporting her as well.”

Sanders used much of his speech to bring attention to his signature issues — corporate oversight, climate change and income inequality. In endorsing Clinton, he acknowledged those who dislike both nominees.

“Get beyond personality,” he told the crowd. “Alright, you don’t like Hillary Clinton, you don’t like Donald Trump fine. You like yourselves. I hope so, if that means taking a hard look at the issues the candidates stand for. We’re not running here for class president of the local high school. This is not a popularity contest. We are electing the most powerful individual in the world.”

Yet many still see Clinton’s positions as too centrist and her remarks to Wall Street firms, provided by WikiLeaks, too deferential to financial firms’ interests.

“This is home of rural populism and it manifests in very different ways on theft and the right,” said Rachel Caufield, an associate professor of political science at Drake University in Des Moines. 

“On the left if manifests as a distrust of corporations and economic power. And Hillary Clinton’s message isn’t resonating with those folks in the same way that say Barack Obama’s did.  You still have a lot of those folks who were diehard Bernie supporters who will continue to be Bernie supporters and they’re not sure that Hillary Clinton embraces some of the ideological positions that they want to see in their Democratic Party.”

Clinton trails Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, in Iowa by less than 3 percentage points, according to an average of polls provided by Real Clear Politics.

The latest state-provided returns show Iowa Democrats and Republicans have submitted fewer absentee ballots than they did by the same point in 2012. Thus far, Republicans have returned a larger share of ballots, and Democrats a smaller percentage than they did in the last presidential election year. 

As of Friday, 238,029 Democrats and 196,611 Republicans had submitted ballots, according to the Iowa secretary of state. 

While the Clinton campaign relies on surrogates such as Sanders and the Obamas to coax their supporters to the polls, Clinton herself maintains a stead attack on her opponent.

“Among most Democrats, the strongest case she’s making right now is that she’s not Donald Trump,” Caufield said.

Nor is she Sanders. 

“I’ve been to eight of his last 12 events, and the Bernie merchandise sells a lot better than the Hillary,” said Daniel Richards, a campaign merchandise salesman from Springfield Illinois, as he unloaded a stack of Sanders T-shirts from his van. 

“This was the number one seller at the Democratic convention,” Richards also said as he presented a green “It’s always Bernie in Philadelphia” shirt.

Speaking of selling …Bernie Sanders sold his sycophants out.

According to heatstreet.com,

Emails published by WikiLeaks suggest that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had a secret “agreement” during the Democratic primary.

In a May 2015 email exchange, top Clinton campaign aides discussed “Sanders criticism” after Hillary’s primary opponent attacked the Clintons over their extreme wealth by suggesting that they “hustle money.”

When asked about the Clintons’ wealth during an interview with CNBC, Sanders had some harsh words:

Theoretically you can be a multibillionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emailed campaign chairman John Podesta to express his displeasure with Sanders’ remarks, and suggested that Sanders had violated an “agreement” of some kind between the campaigns.

“This isn’t in keep [with] the agreement,” Mook wrote. “Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch–or did you establish a direct line [with] him?”

The “Welch” referred to here is presumably Rep. Peter Welch (D., Vt.), one of the first Democratic lawmakers to publicly endorse Sanders.

For the past 7 years, Barack Hussein Obama has been promising “Hope and change”, through his unceasing rhetoric of Class Warfare, Racial Animus, and “Sharing the Wealth”.

His promises have proven to be as empty as our pocketbooks.

Almost 95,000,000 Americans are now out of our workforce, having given up ever being able to find a job.

And, then, you have those Americans who never wanted to work for their money in the first place.

Bernie Sanders, “Evangelist” of the failed political ideology of Marxism, member of the rapidly-tanking American Political Party known as “Democrats”,  basically appealed to the collegiate and “slacker” vote, the MTV Generation, still living in Mom’s Basement, who salivate over the vision of “money for nothing and their chicks for free”.

The Socialist Paradise, which Bernie Sanders offered Millennials, is nothing new.

Ask the countries of Venezuela and Greece, as they burn to the ground, their hopes and dreams piled on top of a “Democratic Socialist” Pyre of their own making.

As we enter the last two days before the most important Presidential Election in our lifetime, it would be wise for those voters who still want to “#FeelTheBern” to remember the words of a great World Leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who, as Prime Minister, led Great Britain though the Fight Against Fascism during World War II, when he said,

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. 

What Bernie’s collective hive-mind of group-thinking followers never seemed to grasp was the reality that Marxism has NEVER worked, anywhere that it has been tried.

Man’s own greed and corruption, as in the case of the old Russian Politboro, and Bernie Sanders, himself, always gets in the way of their dream for a Socialist Utopia.

That is the reason that Marxism remains a THEORY…and a failed one, at that.

The news potentially isn’t all bad for ol’ Bernie are the Democratic Party goes down in flame next Tuesday, though.

Perhaps, they will make a remake of “Back to the Future”.

He’s a dead ringer for Doc Emmett Brown.

2016 Presidential Election “Crunch Time”: Liberal “Concern” Vs. Actual Reality

October 2, 2016

mud-wrestling-600-ci-2

Can you feel the “Liberal Concern” in the air on this Blessed American Sunday Morning, boys and girls?

Foxnews.com reports that

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stepped up his personal attacks on Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton Saturday night, telling supporters in Pennsylvania that Clinton “should be in prison” over her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

Trump made the apparently unscripted statement as chants of “Lock her up!” rang out at the rally in Manheim, Pa. Trump himself has avoided using such language in the past. But this time, he joined in.

The real estate mogul also made an apparent reference to former President Bill Clinton’s sexual indiscretions, saying that Hillary Clinton’s “only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself.”

“I don’t think she’s even loyal to Bill if you want to know the truth,” Trump added. “Why should she be, right? Why should she be?”

Trump previously highlighted the 42nd president’s infidelities in a New York Times interview published Friday.

“Hillary was an enabler,” Trump told the paper. “And she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”

When asked by The Times about his affair with Marla Maples while married to his first wife, Ivana during the late 1980s, Trump said “I wasn’t president of the United States. … I don’t talk about it.”

Completing a trifecta of personal attacks against the former first lady, Trump also questioned Clinton’s phsyical stamina, referencing her fainting episode while attending a Sept. 11 memorial service last month.

Rattling off a list of world problems, Trump told the audience, “She’s supposed to fight all of these things and she can’t make it 15 feet to her car. Give me a break.” At that point, Trump imitated Clinton’s stumble that was recorded by a bystander as she tried to leave the event.

“Folks, we need stamina, we need energy, we need people who are going to turn deals around.”

For the second straight evening, Trump questioned the integrity of the nation’s voting system, recalling his warning earlier this summer that the election result would be “rigged”.

“You gotta get out, get your friends, go watch your polling booth,” Trump said Saturday. “I’ve seen too many bad stories especially here in Pennsylvania.

“We can’t lose an election because of, you know what I’m talking about,” the real estate mogul added. “A lot of bad things happen. I don’t want to lose for that reason.”

Trump spoke hours before The New York Times reported that it had obtained documents showing that Trump had claimed a $916 million loss on his 1995 tax returns, an amount so large it may have allowed him to avoid paying income tax for 18 years.

Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon called Trump’s rally remarks unhinged in a Twitter post and speculated that they were an effort to distract from the Times report.

After I read this story this morning, I pictured in my mind’s eye thousands of Liberal News Reporters and Internet Trolls scampering in their footie pajamas to their desktop computers and their iPads, searching for toothless attack stories and ignorant, false memes to post about the Republican Presidential Candidate in retaliation for his attacking their precious Hillary last night…with the truth.

It is a sure thing that these fanboys and hairy-armpitted girls will be attacking Trump all day long today out of heartfelt “concern” for and “righteous rage” in defense of the Queen of Mean.

Some of them might even continue pushing their stupid “Beauty Queen Fat-Shaming Story” that has been beaten into oblivion by the actual facts.

However, you will neither see nor read a mumblin’ word out of Hillary’s minions concerning her recorded attack of Bernie Sander’s’ Followers, in which she accused them of all being “children of the Great Recession” who are “living in their parents’ basement.”

For you see, boys and girls, the hallmark of Modern American Liberal Political Pundits, both paid and unpaid, is HYPOCRISY.

They are not bound by traditional morality and ethics. They consider them to be antiquated and passe.

They believe that their feelings are more substantive than reality and that their biased opinions are the TRUTH.

With a little over a month remaining before the election, these Modern American Liberal “Political Pundits” realize all too well that Donald J. Trump is poised to become the next President of the United States.

This fast-approaching  reality will bring a barrage of attack stories and memes littered across both the Main Stream and Social Medias, like flyers for a local business across a Walmart Parking Lot.

And, they should be discarded in the same manner as those flyers.

Since I became active in Internet Politics before the election of Barack Hussein Obma (mm mmm mmmm), I have borne witness to the fact that while actual Moderates (not Liberals masquerading as such) and Conservatives tend to debate politics based on factual reality, Liberals “debate” by insisting that their own feelings, opinions, and hateful obsessions are reality-driven facts.

Let’s face it, boys and girls…

The weekly Supermarket Tabloid, “The Weekly World News”, contains more facts than a Liberal Internet Rant or one of their Homemade Memes.

The Modern American Liberal Political Pundits’ visceral hatred for Donald J. Trump all streams from the reality of his achievement of the American Dream, which is playing no small part in his upcoming victory in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Trump is about to thwart their plans to finish the job that Obama started of turning the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” into the “Land of Pajama Boys and Caitlin Jenners”.

Thank God.

Until He Comes,

DNC 2016: Promises, Propaganda, and Protesting

July 27, 2016

DNC-Sell-Job-NRD-600

Last week, the Main Stream Media attempted to paint the Repubicans, as they held their 2016 National Convention, as being “split wide open” and the optimistic Acceptance Speech of Donald J. Trump as somehow being “dark”.

As foreboding as they attempted to make last week’s convention sound, the Democrat’s gathering this week has exceeded the chaotic  picture painted by their sycophants in the MSM…and then some.

The Associated Press reports that

Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination.Despite Sanders’ calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda.

Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a media tent. Some had their mouths taped shut. A few spontaneously sang the chorus of the folk song “This Land is Your Land,” and a banner read “we the people.” They said they were holding a peaceful protest to complain about being shut out by the Democratic Party.

“This was not a convention. This was a four-day Hillary party. And we weren’t welcome,” said Liz Maratea, a New Jersey delegate at the media tent protest. “We were treated like lepers.”

In the streets outside, Sanders supporters who had spent the day protesting began facing off with police. Protesters began scaling 8-foot walls blocking off the secure zone around the arena parking lot, and several were detained. An officer sprayed one of the protesters.

The protests continued into the night with Sanders supporters and anti-police brutality protesters joining together. They marched in the street outside of the Wells Fargo Center. Later, someone set an Israeli flag on fire while people chanted “long live the intifada.”

Others then came together for a candlelight vigil.

Unmoved by Sanders’ plea for party unity, the Bernie or Bust protesters walked miles in the stifling heat again Tuesday to make their case for him. They held a midday rally at City Hall, then made their way down Broad Street to the convention site. By early evening, a large crowd had formed outside the subway station closest to the arena.

“We all have this unrealistic dream that democracy is alive in America,” said Debra Dilks, of Boonville, Missouri, who said she wasn’t sure she’ll vote in November. “Hillary didn’t get the nomination. The nomination was stolen.”

The crowd consisted of an assortment of protesters espousing a variety of causes, but mostly Sanders supporters and other Clinton foes on the left. College student Cory James said he expects the Democratic Party to split over the nomination.

“I suspect we are witnessing an event that will fundamentally change American politics,” said James, of Flint, Michigan.

Earlier in the day, participants at the rally charged that Sanders was cheated out of the nomination, and they said they weren’t swayed by his Monday plea to his supporters to fall in line behind Clinton for the good of the country.

“He persuaded no one to vote for Hillary,” said Greg Gregg, a retired nurse from Salem, Oregon, who intends to cast his ballot in November for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The longstanding bitterness between Sanders’ supporters and Clinton’s seemed to grow worse over the past few days after a trove of hacked emails showed that officials at the Democratic National Committee played favorites during the primaries and worked to undermine Sanders’ campaign.

Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter said Monday’s speeches from Sanders and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn’t persuade him to support Clinton.

“They really agitate people more every time they stand up and do the Hillary Clinton hoo-rah hoo-rah,” he said.

Carter, a Dallas resident, said he doesn’t fear a Republican Donald Trump presidency.

With temperatures climbing again toward the mid-90s, Chris Scully, an engineer from Troy, New York, held a “Jill Before Hill” sign outside City Hall and said he opposes Clinton because of her war record as U.S. secretary of state.

As Scully spoke, a passer-by called out: “That’s a vote for Trump!”

In a separate protest, against police brutality and racial injustice, about 500 people marched down Broad Street to City Hall. Protest leader Erica Mines told the crowd it was an “anti-police rally” and a “black and brown resistance march” and instructed all white people to move to the back.

March participant Tiara Willis, of Philadelphia, said she subscribes to the slogan “I’m with her … I guess.” She said she won’t back Trump and called Clinton “the lesser of two evils.”

So, while the DNC was scrambling to find some American Flags to put on view inside the convention hall, after Americans noticed that they were purposefully left out of the proceedings, and Millennial Icon Bernie Sanders was selling out to “the Establishment Democrats that he had promised to fight “for the people”, on the other side of the “security fence”, the “peasants” were revolting.

Their reason?

After months of campaigning on the promising of usher in an eras of more “FREE STUFF’, both Self-Proclaimed Socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and the Queen of Mean and now-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton are embracing the illusion of the Democratic Party being “Moderate” in their Political Ideology, while trying to sucker those on the Far Left into believing that they still matter in the scheme of things.

Instead, the peasants are not being fooled and they are revolting.

(Yeah. They stink on ice. – Mel Brooks, “The History of the World, Part I”)

Unrequited love is so sad, isn’t it?

Why are Far Left Democrats (which nowadays describes the overwhelming majority of the Party) so enamored of Socialist Politicians?

Merriam-webster.com defines socialism as:

…any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

…a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

…a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

The desensitization and placating of the Middle Class, as it was in classic Marxist Theory, is a key element of the Present and Future Platform of the Democrat Party, as it has been during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

By taking the ambition of the Middle Class away, by offering a “safe and comfortable” cradle-to-grave Nanny-State, “Uncle Sugar” Federal Government, the Democrat Party, ever since the launch of LBJ’s “Great Society”, have bought the loyalty of  American voters by giving them bribes of “free” money and “benefits”.

Unfortunately, as Mitt Romney alluded to during his failed bid for the Presidency, there is a great percentage of American voters who will buy and be content with this “Mother’s milk”, instead of yearning for the thrill and the challenge of the hunt for American Individual Success and Freedom.

The Marxist Ideal of

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need

has become the mantra of the Modern Democratic Party, which has become extremely adept at promising the Moon and handing out free stuff to its voting base, in order to maintain their Seats of Power and to continue to grow the Politboro, or Central Government.

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate,  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

However, just like the Marxists before them, today’s Marxists can be bought off.

According to rumors, Bernie Sanders was co-opted into publicly supporting Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend’s wife through the offer of his own airplane.

That makes sense.  That and the fact that he does not wish to be the victim of a “mysterious death” in his future.

Thanks to a highly politicized, propaganda-filled Department of Education, which has “dumbed down” a generation of voters, the “easy money” solution to poverty, promised by Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “tickles the ears” of low information voters, the same voting bloc who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama and his failed Presidency.

Hence, the Democrats’ claim of supporting Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders and his Wannabe-Socialist Millennials.

Not to mention the Police Line-up of  guest speakers representing the “downtrodden” and ‘marginalized” that they hand-picked to show that the millionaire Hillary Clinton is “down with the struggle”.

Just like the Politboro before them, this wannabe “New Politboro”, like their sitting President, Barack Hussein Obama,  is quite adept at using human beings for stage props for propaganda purposes.

They bring dishonesty to a level not seen since Kurt Russell played Used Car Salesman Extraordinaire Rudy Russo in the movie, “Used Cars”.

The thing is, even after the debacle that has been this week’s Democratic National Convention, highlighted by the releasing of e-mails by WikiLeaks, not to mention the long history of corruption of Hillary Clinton, Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump will have to work hard to win the Office of President of the United States of America.

Can he do it? Sure, he can.

After all, he wrote “The Art of the Deal”.

Get your popcorn ready.

Until He Comes,

NYT Foreign Bureau Chief Covering DNC: “Trump Supporters ‘Less-Educated White People'”

July 26, 2016

thEUAUOVRK

Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.- Ronald Reagan.

Declan Walsh is the Cairo Bureau Chief for The New York Times.

The former leader in American Journalism decided that it would be a great idea to send Walsh to Philadelphia to cover to Democratic National Convention as a foreign correspondent in much the same way he would cover an overseas event.

His summary of yesterday’s debacle of the first day of the DNC, proves one thing: The only individual snottier and more condescending than an  American Liberal Reporter…is a Foreign Liberal Reporter.

Pay attention to how he describes supporters of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump.

My first sight of this week’s Democratic convention had nothing to do with the party’s nominee for president, Hillary Clinton. 

At a bus stop in Philadelphia on Sunday night I passed people clutching placards for Mrs. Clinton’s vanquished rival, Senator Bernie Sanders — a sign of the bubbling passions that have animated every argument in this extraordinary election year.

By Monday morning, those passions had erupted into open divisions, even before the convention had officially started, when Mr. Sanders’s supporters jeered and booed Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who organized this convention and who has promised to resign.

It was not the start that Mrs. Clinton wanted. In the wake of last week’s bitterly divided Republican convention in Cleveland, chuckling Democrats promised that their own meeting would be a paragon of party discipline and unity. “I can tell you we’re going to have a very different kind of convention,” Mrs. Clinton told supporters on Monday. 

But the publication of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails by WikiLeaks this weekend provided a disastrous prelude to the convention. The emails revealed concerted efforts by senior party leaders, including Ms. Wasserman Schultz, to undermine Mr. Sanders’s campaign, reopening the wounds from the primary contest.

Come Monday afternoon, Mr. Sanders’s supporters amassed outside the convention hall, shouting, “Hell no, D.N.C., we won’t vote for Hillary!” Inside, they booed at every mention of Mrs. Clinton’s name. And Ms. Wasserman Schultz had announced that she would not, as tradition dictates, strike the gavel to open the convention later that day. 

It is a sign of the fevered change roiling American politics that the normally staid party conventions have become spectacles of confrontation and division where insurgent forces are on display, often to the dismay of traditional party leaders.

It started during last week’s Republican convention, a four-day spectacle of red-meat, hard-core conservative politics in Cleveland where delegates openly clashed over the candidacy of the billionaire Donald J. Trump. On the final night, Mr. Trump delivered a dystopian address that presented America as a fearful place, surrounded by darkness and besieged by enemies. The atmosphere in the hall was strange and electrifying, punctuated by chants of “U-S-A!”

This is my first time covering a campaign in America, and a far cry from those I remember as a child in Ireland, where my father was active in local politics for Fianna Fail, then the governing party. At home, political reporting involved a tour of what was sardonically known as the “chicken-and-chips circuit,” named for the dominant catering choice at campaign events across the country.

In Cleveland, news organizations and tech firms rented out restaurants near the convention arena, providing open bars and free food to journalists, political operatives and corporate types. The Washington Post, CNN and Twitter had their own hospitality setups at restaurants on East Fourth Street, a pedestrian walkway thronged by people and hawkers selling campaign paraphernalia: T-shirts that read “Hot Chicks for Trump,” and pins denigrating Mrs. Clinton.

The media circus also offered an irresistible opportunity for other Americans, of every persuasion, to push their own causes. In front of the NBC studio, which overlooked the street, people waving signs jostled for space, trying to edge into the shot during a live panel discussion. One evangelist held a sign that read “REPENT: Fear him who has the power to cast you into hell” while another yelled into a bullhorn. A mustachioed young man was promoting a T-shirt company. And a diminutive woman, standing on her tiptoes, held a sign warning of the dangers of something call gadolinium.

 “The world’s watching,” she said. “I can’t allow another person to die.”

It felt like more like street theater than politics. But the more salient issues of the American campaign were never far. The shooting of three police officers in Baton Rouge, La., on the eve of the Republican convention highlighted the heady mix of guns, race and policing that has played prominently in the presidential race.

In Philadelphia, America’s wider malaise is playing big. Sanders supporters are overwhelmingly young and, like their Trump counterparts, angry at the traditional establishment of their party. The weekend email dump by WikiLeaks seemed to confirm their suspicions that the party establishment was allied against them.

The difference is that the Democrats hope to unite their warring factions by reaching for more optimistic notes. In a speech on Saturday, Mrs. Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine, garnered some rave reviews for his sunny and measured tone.

Apart from chicken and chips (that’s French fries to American readers), Ireland of the 1970s produced its own controversial political figure in the form of Charles J. Haughey, the leader of Fianna Fail. Mr. Haughey divided the Irish between those who saw him as a champion of the people, and those who viewed him as a self-enriching scoundrel. His lavish lifestyle — including a yacht, a mansion on an island and money stashed in offshore tax havens — was eventually exposed in the 1990s.

Mr. Haughey’s wealth was a drop compared to Mr. Trump’s, who boasts that his financial success qualifies him to run the United States, and is unashamed – and, thus far, politically undamaged – by some of his more questionable business dealings. His only fear, it seems, is being out of the news for long, which raises the question of how he will manage during this week’s Democratic convention.

The Cleveland convention, with its baying calls for Mrs. Clinton to be jailed and for the abnegation of civil rights movements, did Mr. Trump no harm. The latest poll published Sunday gives him a small ratings bump, and a modest one-point lead over Mrs. Clinton.

But pollsters and political veterans are skeptical he can maintain this advantage, and the efficacy of polls at this point in the campaign is questionable.

Mr. Trump’s support base — less-educated white people — is too narrow, the analysts say, and he faces too much opposition inside the Republican Party. In the heat of a hard-fought campaign, they argue, his improvised campaign will wilt under pressure from the well-oiled Democratic machine, which already enjoys majority support in key demographics: African-Americans, Hispanics, women and young people.

Last week Stuart Stevens, a Republican operative, likened Mr. Trump’s blustering confidence about his chances to that of a man who has jumped from a 100-story building. “He’s at floor 50, and he thinks he knows how to fly,” Mr. Stevens said.

Mr. Trump has defied the experts many times before — less than a year ago, one prominent expert gave him a 2 percent chance of capturing the Republican nomination. As he breaks and reinvents the political rules, Mr. Trump seems to have shown that it doesn’t matter what the experts say or what the story is — what matters is being in the middle of it.

This week, as the Democrats ready themselves for an unprecedented presidential race, Mrs. Clinton will try to show that she is the best story in town.

“Less – educated white people?”

You mean like Dr. Ben Carson?

Oh, wait.

Liberals overestimate the popular of their restrictive and hypocritical political ideology and myopic world view.

If you believed the avalanche of lies spewed forth in the first day of the DNC alone, you would believe that theirs is the largest political ideology in America and that the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, is America’s version of Mother Teresa.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th of this year, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the ones on full display in Philadelphia, ignoring their own scandalous behavior in their desperation to prevent Donald J. Trump from becoming the next President of the United States of America, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, American and of Foreign Origin, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again”

I have heard this garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, that seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

What we are witnessing at this year’s Democratic National Convention Mirrors what  we have been bearing witness for the last couple of years, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like their imperious President, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, whom as found out through WikiLeaks, encouraged and helped to bring about staged protests, in a failed attempt to try to block Donald J. Trump’s pathway to the Presidency.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, and Barack Hussein Obama’s own petulant, belligerent personality of a 12-year-old, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors at Donald  J. Trump’s Campaign Appearances that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by strong-arming their way into Political Rallies, or by blocking access to them, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

And, it also gives the Liberals/Progressives/Alinsky-ites/Marxists who control the Modern Democratic Party the right to present themselves as a prevaricating, America-hating, disorganized bunch of idiots, like they did yesterday.

In conclusion, Liberals and newspaper reports (but, I repeat myself) have the same rgiths as we do under our Constitution.

However, to label supporters of the Republican Candidate as “less-educated white people”, when there is no evidence that they are, in order to try to cover for the rapidly-imploding Democratic Party and their rapidly-tanking Presumptive Presidential Candidate in order to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming the next President…is pathetic.

That is not “journalism”. That is “opinion”.

And, here in America’s Heartland, we call that “INTOLERANCE”.

Crooked President Endorses “Crooked Hillary”. Socialist VP Candidate in the Wings?

June 10, 2016

screen%20shot%202016-06-09%20at%202.01.03%20pmYesterday was a very busy day in the World of American Politics.

In fact. it was so busy that it left my head spinning.

Or, it could be nausea.

The Washington Post reports that

President Obama offered his formal endorsement of Hillary Clinton with a video Thursday and plans to campaign with the former secretary of state in Wisconsin next week, efforts aimed at speeding the Democratic Party’s unification around its presumed presidential nominee.

“I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it,” Obama says in the video. “In fact I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get this job done.”

The swift endorsement came after the president met with Sen. Bernie Sanders at the White House earlier Thursday and the senator from Vermont indicated he is preparing to exit the Democratic nominating battle.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will offer her own endorsement later Thursday on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, a person close to Warren confirmed on condition of anonymity. The only Democratic woman in the Senate who had not yet endorsed Clinton, Warren’s support is expected to help bring Sanders supporters and the left generally in line behind the presumptive nominee.

Sanders has been under pressure to stand down and help unify the party after a long and contentious contest with Clinton for the nomination.

One of Obama’s tasks will be to try to rally those who have backed Sanders behind Clinton’s candidacy.

The short video provides a preview of the central theme Obama is likely to hammer away at for months to come: that Clinton’s experience, toughness and values make her more qualified to lead the country than a real estate magnate who’s never held public office.“And from the decision we made in the Situation Room to get bin Laden, to our pursuit of diplomacy in capitals around the world, I have seen her judgment, I’ve seen her toughness,” the president said. “I’ve seen her commitment to our values up close.”

Clinton and Obama will campaign together in Green Bay, Wis., her campaign confirmed.

In an interview with Bloomberg News, timed to correspond with the video’s release, Clinton welcomed the Obama endorsement.

“It just means so much to have a strong, substantive endorsement from the president. Obviously I value his opinion a great deal personally,” Clinton said. “It’s just such a treat because over the years of knowing each other, we’ve gone from fierce competitors to true friends.”

Sanders told reporters after his White House meeting he is looking forward to working with Clinton to defeat Trump in the fall.

“Needless to say, I’m going to do everything in my power, and I’m going to work as hard as I can, to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States,” he told reporters, as his wife, Jane, stood behind him.

Trump, meanwhile, offered his thoughts in a tweet: “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”

Sanders said he still plans to compete in Tuesday’s final Democratic primary in the District, but he added that “in the near future” he hopes to meet with Clinton — who this week clinched the Democratic nomination — to talk about ways they can work together.

His comments suggested that Sanders is preparing to exit the long and grueling presidential race so long as leading Democrats make a genuine effort to incorporate his policy ideas into their broader agenda.

The hour-long meeting with Obama came on a busy day for Sanders in Washington, where he also met on Capitol Hill with Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); Reid has sought to play the role of peace broker at the end of a contentious nominating contest between Sanders and Clinton.

An afternoon meeting with Vice President Biden was also added to Sanders’s schedule for Thursday. The two are set to meet at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory, said Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs.

“He is seeking out the counsel of people he admires and respects,” Briggs said of Sanders.

Increasingly, Sanders’s aim seems to be using the leverage that he and his millions of loyal followers now have to ensure that his campaign agenda — anchored around issues of income and wealth inequality — has a central place in the Democratic Party’s platform and general-election strategy.

Meanwhile, the plot sickens…per Fox News:

White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday called the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton a “criminal investigation.”

Fox News reporter James Rosen said to Earnest, “So when a career prosecutor or an FBI agent working on the Clinton investigation hears this President speak openly about how he wants Hillary Clinton to succeed him, you don’t think that that career prosecutor or that FBI agent takes that as some indication as to how the president wants to see this case resolved?”

I have spent a lot of time the last couple of years writing about the Washingtonian Status Quo and the tone-deaf nature of the REplublican Establishment, or “Vichy” Republicans, as I dubbed them, for their predilection to sell out and acquiesce to the political schemes of the other side of the Political Aisle, the members of the Democratic Party.

Now, unless the Socialist Senator from Vermont decides to launch an ill-fated Third Party Campaign for the Presidency, Bernie Sanders’ Supporters, including all of those mush-minded millennials, who thought that Uncle Bernie was going to become President and give them all “free stuff”, are about to “Feel the Bern” alright…in the same region as Jack did when he jumped over the candle stick.

Depending on whether the Far Left Advocates, who now control the Democratic Party, will decide to completely drop their mask dyring Hillary’s Presidential Campaign and proudly proclaim their Marxism or not, Sanders, the “Doc Emmett Brown look-alike, could be asked to be Hillary’s Vice-Presidential Candidate, in order to attempt to secure the much-needed vote of the easily-led millennials.

That would solve one problem that the Democrat Hieracrchy faces.

However, they face an even bigger one:

Their Presidential Candidate is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Obama’s endorsement will not whitewash this fact.

Neither will his blocking the FBI from seeking an indictment of Hillary Clinton, is that is his plan, which I am certain that it is.

The Democrats are calling the Upcoming Nomination and Campaign of Hillary Clinton for the Presidency of the United States, a “Seminal Moment in American History”. All of this adulation is not because she is all that and a bag of chips. They are lauding her candidacy, simply because she is a woman.

Well, it’s a Seminal Moment in American History, alright. But, not for that reason. Other women, as you can read all over Facebook, have run for the Office of President before.

This moment is unique in American History because a Sitting President has endorsed a Former Secretary of State, who is facing CRIMINAL CHARGES for her ability to safeguard America’s Foreign Policy Top Secret Plans and Strategies, which contained acts which quite probably endangered American lives.

To summarize, you have a Machiavellian Sitting President, who has deliberately split this nation along Racial, Moral, Ethical, and Socio-Economic Lines, endorsing as his potential successor a woman, whose biggest professional accomplishment was the mishandling of Top Secret Foreign Policy E-mails, and who might choose a full-blown Marxist as her Vice-Presidential Candidate.

Doesn’t this give you the “warm fuzzies”?

It does me. Although, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, it is probably nausea.

All of these Democratic Political Machinations should not surprise you.

After all, when it comes to the Sitting President and his Former Secretary of State, it has been proven time and time again that

One lies and the other swears to it.

Now, please excuse, I have to go hurl.

Until He Comes,
