Forget lowering unemployment, Bernie Sanders will eliminate it!

Published

on

During his 2016 Democrat primary campaign, Bernie Sanders was “absolutely sympathetic” to the idea of a universal basic income; however, he felt that his plans for a $15/hr. minimum wage, expanding Social Security to pay for guaranteed healthcare, and providing free college would do more than creating just another government handout.

But now Bernie has apparently found a way to accomplish his goals as well as the goals of the universal basic income crowd.
Yesterday, we learned that the self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist is ready to announce a plan that will guarantee every American “who wants or needs one” a lifetime government job paying at least $15/hr. and proving paid family and medical leave plus retirement, health, and vacation benefits.

While the details are still being worked on, Bernie has admitted that he currently has no idea exactly how much his plan will cost or where the money to pay for it will come from. However, if his 2016 campaign is any indication, the cost will be irrelevant, and the money to pay for it will come from “the billionaires and oligarchs” he refers to as the “top one percent of income earners.”

While it would be tempting to shrug off Bernie’s plan as the rantings of a socialist loon living to the left of the left-wing, we should remember how his Marxist beliefs concerning income inequality caught fire with a generation of Constitutionally ignorant voters raised on the socialist ideology taught in today’s public schools indoctrination centers.

And a poll conducted during the 2016 primary season showed that a majority of millennials rejected capitalism.

Democrats would see a huge voter advantage by creating a new state-run workforce dependent upon them for their jobs. And politicians from both parties would have a new voter-bloc to advance their ideological and political agendas.

Bernie’s plan is being called a guaranteed-jobs program, but the only guarantee it gives us is the destruction of capitalism and Constitutional America.

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.

Even a liberal women’s rights group recognizes antisemitism is on the rise among Democrats

Even a liberal womens rights group recognizes antisemitism is on the rise among Democrats

Accusations of antisemitism are commonly laid on liberals as well as far-right white nationalists. Conservatives, mainstream Republicans, and moderate Democrats often point out the hypocrisy of the progressive wing of the Democratic party, but even some progressives are starting to see the problems.

Women’s March For All (WMFA) recognizes that the liberal movement they embrace has an ugly side as it pertains to Jews. The group, which detached itself from the original Women’s March on Washington when their antisemitic leadership embraced the teachings of Louis Farrakhan. While much of the WMFA’s agenda is still extremely progressive, it’s refreshing to see them speak out against the radical antisemitic leanings of their previous allegiances.

Progressive Feminist Group Calls on Democratic Party to Adopt Definition of Antisemitism

https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/08/13/progressive-feminist-group-calls-on-democratic-party-to-adopt-definition-of-antisemitism/In a petition launched on Friday and signed by some 120 people, Women’s March For All (WMFA) warned that antisemitism — “often cloaked as anti-Zionism” — “has now become a serious problem in liberal movements worldwide,” including in Canada and the United Kingdom.

The group was formed as an offshoot of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, after the movement’s leaders — Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez — came under fire in March for their praise of Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who has railed against “Satanic Jews” and been accused of sharing misogynistic, homophobic, and transphobic views.

The Democratic party is at a crossroads. They are torn between the hateful nature of the socialist movement and the aging moderate wing. This move by the WMFA is brave because it calls for clear lines drawn by the party to prevent it from turning into a purely antisemitic hate group.

Here’s their statement:

Special elections indicate a Blue Tsunami and Trump’s impeachment are coming

Special elections indicate a Blue Tsunami and Trumps impeachment are coming

For those who refuse to accept the likelihood that Donald Trump will be impeached following the November elections after the Democrats retake the House, a new report released yesterday isn’t going to be very comforting.

Sure, Donald Trump is predicting a Red Wave and bragging about his so-called successes in places like Ohio-12—the special election between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor is still too close to call—but a look at the hard data behind this season’s special elections shows that Democrats stand a better than 50/50 chance of retaking the House in November, and doing so convincingly.

The non-partisan Cook Political Report said yesterday that Democrats have outperformed expectations in 9 House Special Elections this cycle by an average of 8 percent.

To get an idea on what that could look like in November, if Democrats performed at that level in all 435 Congressional districts, they’d pick up 81 House seats. Of course, as David Wasserman, Cook’s analyst on House races, points out, that’s not likely to happen because not every district is a toss-up, thanks to the power of incumbency.

However, Democrats only need 23 seats to retake the House, and since 37 Republicans are choosing not to seek re-election, there are enough open seats to make incumbency irrelevant.

In an article I wrote in February, I documented how special elections at the state level painted a gloomy picture for the GOP this election season. After a string of Democrat victories since November 2016, House Speaker Paul Ryan reached the same conclusion, and it’s only grown worse since February.

The reasons the Republicans face a Blue Tsunami are plain for all to see. Besides the usual midterm struggles experienced by the party occupying the White House, Trump and the GOP have broken nearly every promise they made to conservatives when they begged us to give them control of Washington, such as: repealing Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, controlling spending, and fixing immigration.

To make matters worse, Trump continues to carry historically low job-approval numbers, and his Twitter rants, trade war, and weak moral character only serve to drive them lower.

In a nutshell, the Republicans have betrayed conservatives and our values, giving voters no reason to show up and support them at the polls. When you take this reality and add it to a fired-up Democrat party dedicated to retaking the House and impeaching Trump, the outcome in November is inevitable.
