With help from the GOP, Democratic Socialism marches on

Published

USSA-Flag

Democratic Socialism is definitely the future of the Democrat party, and since there aren’t any Republicans standing against it, it’s most likely to be the future of America as well.

From their calls to nationalize health care to repealing the Second Amendment, Democrats have fully embraced the ideals of dictators like Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, and Chairman Mao. And while it’s become a game of sorts to ridicule them for their socialist ideals, Democrats are succeeding in moving the agenda in their favor.

Back in May, four openly socialist candidates supported by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) won their primaries in Pennsylvania state House races. Feeling the shift in momentum, Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Keith Ellison—a big fan of the DSA—took the opportunity to promote the idea of giving the government power to regulate the pay structure of private companies, particularly CEO compensation.

So, it came as no surprise last week when Massachusetts Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren one-upped Ellison by proposing legislation that would result in the largest government seizure of private property in human history.

Introduced as the Accountable Capitalism Act, Warren’s bill would place all businesses earning over $1 billion in revenue under complete and total government control. If it becomes law, the Federal Government would control board membership, compensation practices, personnel policies, and much more of private enterprise.

While Warren’s proposal isn’t likely to go anywhere currently, proposing ideas like this one is a classic long-game strategy. If she runs in 2020, Warren will have an agenda item to woo the growing number of voters who favor socialism over capitalism. If she doesn’t run, she has laid the foundation of the Democrat agenda for 2018 and 2020 when Congress isn’t likely to still be under GOP control.

Unfortunately, even if the GOP remains the majority party, the advance of socialism still stands about a 50/50 chance of succeeding.

Trump won’t do anything to stop it. Besides his Bernie Sanders 2.0 policies and his lifelong status as a NY liberal, Trump celebrated the primary victory of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over 10-term NY Rep. Joe Crowley because he was a “Big Trump Hater.”

GOP socialism has been standard fare ever since Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove teamed up to destroy Reagan conservatives in 2014. And with Trumpservatives replacing what little remains of the conservative movement, we are beginning to see the rise of what I’m calling Conservative Socialism where ideas like big-government single-payer health care are now being promoted as conservative ideals.

Though some may call it hyperbole, I will say once again that the United Socialist States of America is closer than we realize.

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.

Andrew Gillum concedes in Florida governor’s race for second time

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.
