Trump Says Tariffs Still in Play if Mexico Does Not Cooperate, Dems Not Happy About Trump’s “Win”

June 10, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Even as he again hailed his administration’s last-minute, much-heralded deal on Friday with Mexico as a “successful agreement” to address illegal immigration at the southern border, President Trump on Sunday bluntly suggested he might again seek to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico if its cooperation falls short in the future.

The president and other key administration officials also sharply disputed a New York Times report claiming the Friday deal “largely” had been negotiated months ago, and hinted that not all major details of the new arrangement have yet been made public.

In its report, the Times acknowledged that Mexico’s pledge to deploy up to 6,000 national guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala “was larger than their previous pledge,” and that Mexico’s “agreement to accelerate the Migrant Protection Protocols could help reduce what Mr. Trump calls ‘catch and release’ of migrants in the United States by giving the country a greater ability to make asylum-seekers wait in Mexico.”

U.S. officials had been working to expand the migrant program, which already has led to the return of about 10,000 people, and said Friday’s agreement was a major push in that direction. Nevertheless, the Times, citing unnamed officials from Mexico and the U.S., reported that the concessions already had been hashed out in a more limited form.

“Another false report in the Failing @nytimes,” Trump wrote. “We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico. Additionally, and for many years Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border in things we had, or didn’t have, and now I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done.”

That might have been a reference to discussions about Mexico becoming a “safe third country,” which would make it harder for asylum-seekers who pass through the country to claim refuge in the U.S. The idea, which Mexico has long opposed, was discussed during negotiations, but Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has said his country did not agree to it, even as Mexican diplomats said negotiations on the topic will continue.

And, acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” insisted “all of it is new,” including the agreement to dispatch around 6,000 National Guard troops — a move Mexico has described as an “acceleration.”

“This is the first time we’ve heard anything like this kind of number of law enforcement being deployed in Mexico to address migration, not just at the southern border but also on the transportation routes to the northern border and in coordinated patrols in key areas along our southwest border,” he said, adding that “people can disagree with the tactics” but that “Mexico came to the table with real proposals” that he said will be effective, if implemented.

The agreement between the U.S. and Mexico headed off a 5 percent tax on all Mexican goods that Trump had threatened to impose starting Monday. The tariffs were set to rise to 15 percent on August 1, 2019, to 20 percent on September 1, 2019, and to 25 percent on October 1, 2019.

But, Trump suggested Sunday, the threat of tariffs is not completely removed.

“Importantly, some things not mentioned in [yesterday’s] press release, one in particular, were agreed upon,” Trump continued. “That will be announced at the appropriate time. There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the USA, something that didn’t exist for decades. However, if for some unknown reason there is not, we can always go back to our previous, very profitable, position of Tariffs – But I don’t believe that will be necessary. The Failing @nytimes, & ratings challenged @CNN, will do anything possible to see our Country fail! They are truly The Enemy of the People!”

Democrats seeking to unseat President Trump in 2020, meanwhile, said the Times report was evidence that the administration merely was trying to save face, after Trump suddenly announced his plan for the tariffs less than two weeks ago, on May 30.

Bernie Sanders, for example, derided Trump on Sunday for purportedly picking unnecessary and economically costly fights with a variety of countries.

“I think what the world is tired of and what I am tired of is a president who consistently goes to war, verbal war with our allies, whether it is Mexico, whether it is Canada,” Sanders said.

But, in a tense moment on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sanders struggled when asked by host Dana Bash why he had called the situation at the southern border a “fake crisis” engineered by the White House.

“Immigration officials have arrested or encountered more than 144,000 migrants at the southern border in May, the highest monthly total in 13 years,” Bash began. “Border facilities are dangerously overcrowded; migrants are actually standing on toilets to get space to breathe. How is that not a crisis?”

Sanders responded that the president has been “demonizing” immigrants.

Beto O’Rourke, in a separate interview, conceded only that Trump may have helped accelerate the implementation of a previously existing arrangement.

“I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved. These are agreements that Mexico had already made and, in some case, months ago,” O’Rourke said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “They might have accelerated the timetable, but by and large the president achieved nothing except to jeopardize the most important trading relationship that the United States of America has.”

Mexican officials, meanwhile, insisted that they would remain engaged in active negotiations with the Trump administration.

“We want to continue to work with the U.S. very closely on the different challenges that we have together, and one urgent one at this moment is immigration,” Mexican diplomat Martha Barcena said Sunday.

Let’s face it, gentle readers.

Until President Trump made the Mexican Government own some skin in the game through the threat of those tariffs, Mexico had no intention of keeping those migrant caravans away from our Southern Border.

In fact, Mexico was no doubt profiting from these caravans, through money supplied to them from the caravans’ sponsors, which includes the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.

Per OneNewsNow.com from May of 2018

Leftist billionaire George Soros is funding the well-organized anti-Trump migrant caravan invasion from Central America that has been hitting the United States-Mexico border in defiance of immigration enforcement.

“The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, [b]ut the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), the American Immigration Council (AIC), the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) – thus the acronym CARA,” WND reported. “At least three of the four groups are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.”

Former AILA President Victor Nieblas Pradas is behind the Soros-led caravans and contends that detaining mothers and their children who break into the U.S. illegally is inhumane, unfair and unjust.

“There is simply no humane way to detain families,” Pradis declared in an AILA announcement. “Asylum seeking families should be given due process, not expedited removal – and the end of the road must be the end of family detention entirely.”

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, expressed similar thoughts to mine later in October of 2018…

…somebody’s paying for this. Somebody. They have to eat. They have to be drinking things. They’ve gotta be using facilities. Somebody has to be buying the gasoline to transport vehicles, to power the vehicles that are being used here. I guarantee you these people are not walking every step of this thousands-of-miles journey.

The point that I am trying to make, is the fact that the widespread government graft and corruption throughout Mexico has added to their reluctance to help us secure our Southern Border.

Remember, the cartels are very powerful down there and became that way by convincing the Mexican Government to look the other way as they conduct their business.

if President Trump had not taken the stand that he has taken with them and forced them to cooperate by threatening to impose tariffs, Mexico would have continued their matador-inspired way of dealing with the Migrant Caravans…waving their red capes at them and letting them pass by.

Now, the Mexican Government faces economic consequences if they do not secure their own country and stop these unvetted Migrant Caravans containing thousands of illegal aliens, whom we know nothing about, from reaching our Southern Border and demanding asylum.

And, the reason that the Democrats are so upset at Trump’s success is the fact that they were counting on all of those illegals to become future Democrat Voters.

That’s why Bernie had a hard time answering Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union”.

Democrats, like that old socialist, do not see a “crisis” brought on by illegal immigrants going on at our Sothern Border.

They see future political power.

Trump Predicts Biden and Sanders Will Be Final Two in Democratic Primary Battle…Will This Be 1984 All Over Again?

April 17, 2019

biden-sanders-comp-ap-insley-wade

It is hard to believe that in a year and a half America will have another Presidential Election.

The Citizen Statesman who presently occupies the Oval Office has been thinking about whom his opponent in the 2020 Presidential Election night be.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump offered his thoughts Tuesday night on which two Democratic contenders he thinks will be left standing in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Out of the crowded pool of contenders, Trump predicted on Twitter that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders will be the final two in the battle to be the party’s nominee.

“I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)!” he wrote. “I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!”

While Sanders, I-Vt., confirmed in February that he would be running again for president, Biden has yet to formally enter the race.

The president’s prediction came after he targeted Sanders in a separate tweet, speaking about the lawmaker’s finances.

“Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income,” Trump wrote. “He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else – and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!”

Shortly ahead of a Fox News town hall Monday night, Sanders’ presidential campaign released his 2018 returns. According to the figures, Sanders and his wife Jane paid a 26 percent effective tax rate on $561,293 in income, and made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017. Nearly $400,000 of his income last year came from book sales.

Sanders later fired back at the president for his remarks, tweeting that Trump seemed “scared of our campaign.”

“He should be,” he continued.

No…he shouldn’t.

Let’s face it. The Democrats have nobody.

Bernie’s an old Communist and Biden’s an old lech who is a couple of fires short of a happy meal.

If they are the Democrat Front Runners, then the 2020 Presidential Election is over before it begins, especially if the Thursday reveal of the redacted Mueller Report turns out to be as big a nothingburger as is predicted.

This whole scenario is reminiscent of the Presidential Election held on November 6, 1984, in which Republican President Ronald Reagan was elected to a second term, defeating Democrat Walter Mondale, a former U.S. vice president. The Gipper won 49 states en route to amassing 525 electoral votes to Mondale’s 13, one of the biggest landslides in U.S. election history.

Reagan accomplished this historic feat despite the fact that the 1984 Presidential Election was the first time a major party had a woman on its ticket – Geraldine Ferraro, Mondale’s running mate.

Even if Crazy Bernie and Sleepy Joe were to run together, all the Democrats would have would be a pair of Veteran Professional Politicians from the Northeast.

Mondale was a Former Vice-President and U.S. Senator from Minnesota.

Are you beginning to see why this possible scenario reminds me of 1984, gentle readers?

You have a sitting President who communicates directly to the American people, bypassing the Main Stream Media, who has accomplished a great deal so far in his presidency while attempting to keep his Campaign Promises.

And, he has done all of this while working against a hostile MSM.

Sound familiar? It does if you were alive to experience it in the 1980s, like I was.

On the Democratic side, you have one candidate who is a walking gaffe machine, while the other one wants the Americans who do all of the hiring (“the wealthy”) to pay a 52% tax rate in order to fund his plan to turn America into Socialist Paradise.

Those guys will be about as popular in America’s Heartland as the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, was in 2016.

If these guys are the best that the Democrats can offer, Trump should easily be re-elected, just as President Reagan was.

Of course, the Professional Political Pundits and the Democrat-weighted polls will disagree with me if either of these guys are nominated.

However, I will take my chances.

After all, if they were as smart as they claim to be, Hillary Clinton would be President.

Until He Comes,

At Fox News Town Hall, Bernie Sanders Proposes a 52% Wealth Tax…He Currently Pays 26% Income Tax

April 16, 2019

bernie-sanders-at-combative-fox-news-town-hall-makes-no-apologies-for-making-millions-8211-fox-news-850x478

Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it. – Thomas Sowell

FoxNews.com reports that

Bernie Sanders took the stage at a fiery Fox News town hall in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on Monday, and sparks flew almost immediately, as Sanders defiantly refused to explain why he would not voluntarily pay the massive new 52-percent “wealth tax” that he advocated imposing on the nation’s richest individuals.

“We’ll get through this together,” Sanders said at one point, as tensions flared.

Sanders later admitted outright that “you’re going to pay more in taxes” if he became president. Just minutes before the town hall began, Sanders released ten years of his tax returns, which he acknowledged showed that he had been “fortunate” even as he pushed for a more progressive tax system.

According to the returns, Sanders and his wife paid a 26 percent effective tax rate on $561,293 in income, and made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017. Sanders donated only $10,600 to charity in 2016 and $36,300 in 2017, the records showed, followed by nearly $19,000 in 2018.

But pressed by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum as to why he was holding onto his wealth rather than refusing deductions or writing a check to the Treasury Department, Sanders began laughing dismissively and, in an apparent non sequitur, asked why MacCallum didn’t donate her salary. (“I didn’t suggest a wealth tax,” MacCallum responded.)

“Pfft, come on. I paid the taxes that I owe,” Sanders shot back. “And by the way, why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes? President Trump watches your network a little bit, right? Hey President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years. Please do the same.”

Asked whether Sanders’ success — and subsequent decision to hold onto his cash — wasn’t an implicit endorsement of the capitalist system he has repeatedly called dysfunctonal, Sanders rejected the notion out of hand.

“When you wrote the book and made the money, isn’t that the definition of capitalism and the American dream?” Baier asked, referring to Sanders’ bestselling 2016 memoir “Our Revolution.”

“No,” Sanders replied flatly, after a pregnant pause. “What we want is a country in which everyone has an opportunity. … A lot of people don’t have a college degree. A lot of people are not United States senators.”

Sanders doubled down on his previous defenses of his wealth, which even some progressives have called hypocritical.

“This year, we had $560,000 in income,” Sanders said. “In my and my wife’s case, I wrote a pretty good book. It was a bestseller, sold all over the world, and we made money. If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I’m sorry, I’m not gonna do it.”

On whether he supported abortions that occur up to the moment of birth, Sanders retorted, “I think that happens very, very rarely,and I think this is being made into a political issue. At the end of the day, I think the decision over abortion belongs to a woman and her physcian, and not the government.”

Sanders also said felons, including rapists and murderers, should be able to vote from prison. But he insisted he was not simply courting more potential Democrat voters.

The Tax Day town hall took place as Sanders emerged as the fundraising front-runner among Democrats, and sought to further distinguish himself from a crowded field of liberal candidates who have largely embraced his progressive proposals, from a sweeping ‘Medicare for All’ overhaul to a higher minimum wage and free public college education.

“I think Trump is a dangerous president, but if all we do is focus on him, we lose,” Sanders said at the town hall.

Separately, Sanders acknowledged that his proposed Medicare for All health care overhaul — which has also been embraced by other 2020 Democrat hopefuls, including Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren — would mean that many Americans would “pay more in taxes.”

Some estimates put the total costs for the plan over 10 years at more than $32 trillion, and say it would necessitate historic tax hikes.

Bernie Sanders is like all Marxists. They want all of us to “share the wealth” WITH THEM.

It’s no wonder that he makes the con job known as Socialism sound good to young minds full of mush.

He has had years of practice.

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 8, 1941, to Polish immigrants of Jewish descent. After attending Brooklyn College for one year, he transferred to the University of Chicago (UC) and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science in 1964. At UC, Sanders joined the Young Peoples Socialist League (youth wing of the Socialist Party USA) as well as the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Peace Union.

After college, Sanders lived briefly on an Israeli kibbutz, then moved to Vermont where he worked variously as a carpenter, filmmaker, writer, and researcher. In 1971 he joined the anti-war Liberty Union Party (LUP), on whose ticket he made unsuccessful runs for the U.S. Senate in 1972 and 1974, and for Governor of Vermont in 1976. Sanders’s LUP platform called for the nationalization of all U.S. banks, public ownership of all utiliies, and the establishment of a worker-controlled federal government.

Sanders resigned from LUP in 1979 and became a political Independent. Two years later he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, a post he held until 1989. Sanders created some controversy when he hung a Soviet flag in his mayoral office, in honor of Burlington’s Soviet sister city Yaroslav.

According to an Accuracy In Media report, Sanders during the 1980s “collaborated with Soviet and East German ‘peace committees'” whose aim was “to stop President Reagan’s deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe.” Indeed, he “openly joined the Soviets’ ‘nuclear freeze’ campaign to undercut Reagan’s military build-up.”

In 1985 Sanders traveled to Managua, Nicaragua to celebrate the sixth anniversary of the rise to power of Daniel Ortega and his Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government.

In 1986 Sanders ran unsuccessfully for Governor of Vermont, and two years later he made a failed bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In November 1989 Sanders addressed the national conference of the U.S. Peace Council, a Communist Party USA front. The event focused on how to “end the Cold War” and “fund human needs.” Fellow speakers included such notables as Leslie Cagan, John Conyers, and Manning Marable.

Choosing not to seek re-election to a fifth term as mayor, Sanders spent 1989-90 working as a lecturer at Hamilton College in upstate New York and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

By 1990 Sanders was a leading member of Jesse Jackson’s National Rainbow Coalition, and he ran successfully for Congress as a socialist, representing Vermont’s single at-large congressional district. The following year, Sanders founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus along with fellow House members Tom Andrews, Peter DeFazio, Ron Dellums, Lane Evans, and Maxine Waters.

During the 1990s, Sanders participated multiple times in the Socialist Scholars Conferences that were held annually in New York City.

…Sanders has long maintained that “global warming/climate change” not only threatens “the fate of the entire planet,” but is caused chiefly by human industrial activity and must be curbed by means of legislation strictly limiting carbon emissions. In 2007 Sanders and Senator Barbara Boxer proposed the Global Warming Pollution Reduction Act, which, according to an MIT study, would have imposed on U.S. taxpayers a yearly financial burden of more than $4,500 per family, purportedly to check climate change. In February 2010 Sanders likened climate-change skeptics to people who had disregarded the Nazi threat prior to WWII: “During that period of Nazism and fascism’s growth … there were people in this country and in the British parliament who said, ‘Don’t worry! Hitler’s not real! It’ll disappear!’” Accusing “big business” of being “willing to destroy the planet for short-term profits,” Sanders in 2013 said that “global warming is a far more serious problem than al Qaeda.” Stating unequivocally that “the scientific community is unanimous” in its belief that “the planet is warming up,” Sanders the following year declared that the “debate is over” and emphasized the importance of “transform[ing] our energy systems away from fossil fuels.”

In September 2011, Sanders was the first U.S. Senator to support the anti-capitalist Occupy Wall Street movement, lauding its activists for focusing a “spotlight” on the need for “real Wall Street reform.”

In March 2013, Sanders and fellow Senator Tom Harkin together introduced a bill to tax Wall Street speculators. “Both the economic crisis and the deficit crisis are a direct result of the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street,” said Sanders.

Over the years, Sanders’s political campaigns have received strong support from such organizations as the AFL-CIO, the American Association for Justice, the Backbone Campaign, the Council for a Livable World, the Democratic Socialists of America, and Peace Action.

In other words, he’s a Far Left, Socialist Whackjob.

We are already suffered for 8 long years under one Far Left Socialist Whackjob, we sure as heck don’t need to follow the Presidential Nightmare that was the Obama Presidency with another.

French sociologist and political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) traveled to the America in 1831 to study our prisons and returned to France with a wealth of broader observations that he compiled together in “Democracy in America” (1835), one of the most influential books of the 19th century. With its spot-on observations on equality and individualism, Tocqueville’s work remains a valuable explanation of America to Europeans and of Americans to ourselves.

He once observed that

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

In other words, the failed political ideology of socialism takes away the exhilaration and fulfillment of individual achievement and replaces it with self-sacrifice in servitude to the State, for the good of the Central  Nanny-State Government, which, in turn, promises to “share the wealth”, but, as was the case in the old Soviet Union, and more recently, Venezuela, never does.

The great Sir Winston Churchill once said that

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

I would rather be blessed than miserable.

How about you?

Sanders to be Challenged by Other Far Left Dems for 2020 Nomination…Dems Remain Out-of-Touch

December 26, 2018

 

Clown-Car (4)

FoxNews.com reports that

Bernie Sanders had the progressive wing of the Democratic Party virtually all to himself in the 2016 presidential campaign. 
 
Odds are that won’t be the case in 2020, should the independent senator from Vermont launch a second bid for the White House.

“It’s a whole new ball game. Anyone who thinks differently is delusional,” said one veteran New Hampshire-based progressive activist. “It starts all over again. There’s very little residual loyalty that I’m finding.”

Sanders, who crushed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 New Hampshire primary but lost the nomination to her, commanded support from the left flank of the party. This time around, however, the Democratic field is expected to be filled with like-minded candidates. And if Sanders runs, he would face stiff competition for the support of that same liberal base — whether from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, from California Sen. Kamala Harris, from New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker or a host of other liberal potential candidates.

This kind of divided field on the left, in turn, creates a scenario that could open the door for a more moderate or centrist Democrat to claim the party’s presidential nomination.

But regardless of the implications, an epic battle for the heart and soul of the party’s growing liberal wing is underway – and these potential candidates are well aware they’re all targeting the same audience. Sanders and Warren, perhaps the biggest progressive titans of the lot, met one-on-one earlier this month at Warren’s Washington condo to discuss their likely dueling presidential campaigns, two Democratic sources confirmed to Fox News.

The two senators didn’t try to dissuade each other from running, nor did they reach any agreement on how to coordinate going forward, according to The New York Times, which first reported the meeting.

In another sign of tensions, activists loyal to Sanders reportedly have launched an effort to undercut Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who despite losing his Senate race to Ted Cruz has captured the imagination of some Democratic operatives.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon, the only member of the chamber to endorse Sanders in 2016, also is seriously mulling a presidential bid. He’s quietly made lots of contacts and friends among the activist class during five jam-packed trips this year to New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary along the road to the White House.

“I have stayed in this conversation because I have been received so well in living rooms and porches here in New Hampshire and Iowa and Nevada and South Carolina. So that weighs on my mind,” said Merkley, who’s indicated he’ll decide on a run early in the new year.

Another leading progressive in the Senate, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, also is eyeing the White House.

So is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, another supporter of Sanders’ 2016 run, who acknowledged during a recent trip to New Hampshire that she’s “seriously thinking” of launching a presidential bid. The Hawaii Democrat also put out feelers for potential staffers during the visit.

And two high-profile senators who backed Clinton in the 2016 primaries, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, appear to be fine-tuning their message to win over progressive voters. A third of self-described liberals questioned in the latest Fox News Poll said Booker and Harris would make excellent or good presidents, if elected.

“Progressive voters will have a tough choice to make,” Iowa-based attorney and longtime Democratic consultant Jeff Link predicted. “I think they’re willing to kick the tires and see who else is going to run and what they’re going to say.”

Link, a veteran of the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama presidential campaigns, said he just conducted a survey of likely Democratic caucus voters in Iowa that indicated that “Sanders maintains about a third of his vote from 2016, but two-thirds is up for grabs.”

Democratic Party Votes are “up for grabs”, indeed.

And, it’s for the identical reason that they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Democrats remain out-of-touch with the majority of Americans.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News (except for Fox News) Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion” and “unfair treatment of asylum seekers” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

The past two years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

So far, Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors poorly masquerading as impartial investigators, are failing miserably.

They have handed down indictments for “offenses” which were not even a part of Trump’s Presidential Campaign or the first year of his presidency.

With Mueller’s Investigation blowing up around them, now the Democrats are trying to sabotage Trump by denying his the money to fulfill the Campaign Promise he made to erect a wall on our Southern Border, oblivious to the fact that these same Democrats were all for it before Trump suggested it.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They have learned nothing at all from their year and one half out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…

  1. Americans are “jingoistic”.
  2. America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
  3. The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
  4. Perversion is perfectly normal.
  5. They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.

There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.

Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.

Unless they can find their way back to reality, their political party is destined to go the way of the Whigs.

Considering their fondness for relative morality, situational ethics, and purposeful obtuseness, perhaps they should keep traveling the path that they are presently on…attempting to find something…ANYTHING to impeach President Trump on.

Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….

and America.

And, the new Pelosi-led House of Representatives is going to do nothing to halt the Dem’s downward descent into oblivion.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

Until He Comes,

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

bernie-sanders-hillary-clinton-786668

“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.
