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.

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

2020 hopefuls lurching leftward to appeal to radical progressive base

The great primary evolution is already starting. We saw it in 2016 as every Republican candidate tried to “evolve” their views to cater to the conservative base. No evolution was more striking than candidate Trump’s, who went from supporting gun bans and partial birth abortion as a younger man to being one of the most conservative candidates during the primaries.

We’re seeing it now with the Democratic candidates and potential candidates as they try to plant their ideological flags as far to the left as possible. Former Trump pollster John Mclaughlin gave his opinion on the leftward lurch of the field, focusing on Elizabeth Warren, Cory “Spartacus” Booker, and Kamala Harris. Each has attempted to paint themselves as the radical progressive the primary-voting base desires. All of them were much more moderate in the past. Warren was even a Republican in the 1990s.

The thing that makes this trend most disturbing is that the “far left” of the past is nothing compared to the radical progressivism of today’s Democratic base. By the time the primaries really heat up, most if not all will be full-blown socialists.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.
