Andrew Cuomo’s sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

Andrew Cuomos sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo did not misspeak when he declared America “was never that great” earlier today. In fact, his press office doubled down on the statement. What was a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump’s campaign slogan is quickly becoming the primary message of his reelection campaign.

The spin now is that his press office was attempting to walk back his comment, but that’s not the case. They’re now taking the faux pas and driving it into the heart of his messaging.

Andrew Cuomo shocks crowd, says America ‘was never that great

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/15/andrew-cuomo-shocks-crowd-says-america-was-never-that-great.html“We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.

Within hours, his spokeswoman tried walking it back. “The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” Cuomo’s press secretary, Dani Lever, said in a statement. “When the President speaks about making America great again – going back in time – he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions. The Governor believes that when everyone is fully included and everyone is contributing to their maximum potential, that is when America will achieve maximum greatness.”

Here’s the problem with all of this. It’s a notion that’s deeply embedded in the body of the progressive movement. They look at America’s history and see only flaws. There have definitely been bad times in America from slavery to the horrid treatment of native Americans, but in a progressive’s mind it was generally all bad. Capitalism, for example, has been to progressives what makes America evil instead of the engine upon which our nation has driven past the rest of the world.

The past that progressives see is one filled with hatred and intolerance. Yet, they do not see their own lack of tolerance for America’s past that contributed to our former greatness. They want to eradicate everything that’s not new, including Judeo-Christian values. Perhaps especially Judeo-Christian values.

There’s a reason right-leaning media outlets are jumping all over the comments while left-leaning ones aren’t too concerned about them. To the right, Cuomo’s statements were just shy of blasphemous. To the left, his words were a bold statement of their personal truths. They do not think America was great. They believe the only way American can ever be great is if we abandon the very things that made us great in the first place.

We should be a Christian nation. That’s not to say we need to abandon religious freedom or embrace a theocratic model, but to disregard the contributions of Judeo-Christian values for our nation since its founding is idiotic. Unfortunately, those values are seen only as roadblocks to the progressive agenda. This more than anything else is why they often openly denounce these values. They just don’t fit the progressive narrative.

Cuomo’s words won’t be fully walked back because he and so many other progressives hold his words as truth. Spinning it the way they are is only being done to suspend disbelief from moderates. For the progressive base, these words are part of their doctrine.

    It’s always fascinating when the nation’s Left drops the mask, revealing what It truly believes.
    We witnessed the same when Santa Barbara City Councilman Jason Dominguez made the following with regard to banning plastic straws: “Unfortunately, common sense is just not common,” he said. “We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”https://www.noozhawk.com/articl/santa_barbara_city_council_bans_plastic_straws_expanded_polystyrene

    He walked that back later on, but it also revealed something of the inner psyche of the Left.

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti, his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Things were looking pretty bad for attorney Michael Avenatti last week. He was arrested for domestic abuse, making him the laughing stock on social media venues that he prizes as his public relations arm. His star client, porn star Stormy Daniels, is reportedly reconsidering her association with her lawyer. That was last week. This week is starting off badly as well.

His law firm has been evicted from their Newport Beach, California office building for skipping out on four months rent totally $213,000.

Avenatti’s law firm evicted from California offices over unpaid $213G rent

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/avenattis-law-firm-evicted-from-california-offices-over-unpaid-213g-rentMichael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

My Take

As I was saying even before this latest round of bad news, Michael Avenatti needs to take a long break from the public eye. Even the best spin doctors couldn’t salvage his reputation in the short term. If he hopes to someday emerge into the public spotlight that he craves, he’ll need to take a break from being in the news and get some solid ground underneath him.

Many leftists supported him in his quests to take down the President, block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, launch a 2020 presidential run, and become a prominent face for the Democratic Party. It’s safe to say they backed the wrong horse.

Conspiracy Theory

Many Democrats support Mueller investigation without knowing what it’s about

“Trump stole the election!”

Two years and two elections ago, something happened that has Democrats scratching their heads even today. Hillary Clinton lost. She wasn’t supposed to lose. She was cheated some way, somehow.

This is what they hope to be proven by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 elections. The problem is a majority of Democrats think the Russians did something that Mueller’s team isn’t even investigating because there’s absolutely no hint of a possibility that it could be true.

67% of Democrats believe “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.”

Let that sink in.

Robert Mueller Poll

If you believe Russia attempted to influence the elections by using social media and other venues to spread anti-Hillary rhetoric, you’re almost certainly correct. In fact, the Mueller investigation has assumed that to be true from the beginning. The question isn’t whether or not Russia tried to influence the elections in this way. It’s whether or not Americans helped them, in particular members of the Trump campaign.

What’s not being considered is whether or not Russia tampered with vote tallies. They did not. It’s not even a consideration in Mueller’s investigation, yet two-thirds of Democrats believe it to be true.

67% of Democrats can’t wait for Mueller to prove their theories correct even though he isn’t even investigating vote tally tampering at all. It’s reminiscent of the days after Obamacare was launched when Democrats asked, “Wait, it’s not free?”

Andrew Gillum concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida gubernatorial race

It was arguably the most watched gubernatorial race in the nation this past midterm election season and it didn’t disappoint. It took a recount and multiple lawsuits to finish, but in the end Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum.

The mayor of Jacksonville finally conceded for the second time today, nearly two weeks after election day. He already conceded once on election fight.

https://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/2018/11/17/andrew-gillum-concedes-florida-governors-race-second-time/2041301002/In a four-minute video posted live on Facebook, Mayor Gillum stood with his wife R. Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.
