United Socialist States of America may be closer than you think

When Bernie Sanders recently announced his Democratic-Socialist plan to give every American “who wants or needs one” a lifetime government job, it was seen by many as nothing more than the ramblings of a left of the left-wing loon, but as I pointed out in an article I wrote about the announcement, Bernie’s Marxist beliefs are gaining in popularity and a majority of millennials now reject capitalism.

Considering Bernie’s plan, I found it rather interesting to hear Hillary Clinton at the 2018 Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York City yesterday where she was interviewed about her 2016 presidential campaign. When the interviewer pointed out to Hillary that she was the only Democrat candidate who was asked if she believed in capitalism—because Bernie clearly didn’t—he also asked her if she felt that it hurt her campaign.

“Probably. It’s hard to know, but if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked are you a capitalist, and I say yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability, that probably gets lost in the ‘oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist.’”

She was wrong of course because it didn’t cost her. Hillary won the Democrat nomination over Bernie, and she won the popular vote in the general election over Trump. However, she was right about the “socialists” part of her answer. And it’s not this lame attempt at blame shifting that I found the most interesting, it was the fact that Hillary said that being a capitalist is what cost her the presidency.

The Democrat party has indeed begun to align itself with the ideals of socialism. From calls to nationalize healthcare to repealing the Second Amendment, Democrats have embraced the ideals promoted by the likes of Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, and Chairman Mao—who murdered hundreds of millions of their own citizens to advance socialism and communism.

This metamorphosis of the Democrat party is troubling enough in its own, but it’s made worse by feckless big-government Republicans brandishing the word “conservative” to hide the fact that they are also socialists working in one accord with their Unibrow Party counterparts. Just like the Democrats, Republicans will advance any ideology necessary, including socialism, to save their cushy jobs

With a Blue Tsunami warning in effect for November, and with the GOP’s “party of no” approach to elections, America could be on the verge of witnessing the death of capitalism and the Constitution and the rise of the United Socialist States of America . . . possibly as early as 2020.

Liz Wheeler: Why don’t Democrats push for population control to save the planet?

Liz Wheeler Why dont Democrats push for population control to save the planet

One America News Network’s Liz Wheeler has been featured many times on this site. She uses her wit and intellect to cut through the talking points and straight to the heart of a matter. Tonight, she went after the climate change narrative by wondering why Democrats aren’t going after the biggest threat to the environment: humans.

To some extent, her question is actually realistic even though it’s posed in a veil of sarcasm. Abortion is the obvious example of Democrats embracing a form of population control. There actually may be others being discussed behind the scenes, not necessarily by Democratic politicians but by radicals in the real seats of power. After all, killing off SUVs and banning cows wouldn’t have nearly the impact on the environment as reducing the carbon footprint cause by humans by reducing the number of humans in the world.

It’s fodder for some spy novel or the latest Avengers flick, but it’s not entirely unthinkable.

The reason it would never happen, though, has nothing to do with the moral compass of leftists or the altruistic nature of progressives. Their hypocrisy is well understood. The actual reason population control isn’t really on the table is because the powers and principalities, the rulers of the darkness of the earth, get very little benefit from killing people. Their benefit comes through oppressing people, which means the more the merrier.

Wheeler may have been facetious in her questions, but the idea has definitely been discussed by the elites in the past and possibly in the present. Fear not, though. The bad guys would rather have more to oppress than less.

After AP fact checks Beto O’Rourke, AOC, and the Green New Deal, leftist publications lose their minds

After AP fact checks Beto ORourke AOC and the Green New Deal leftist publications lose their minds

A minor news story posted by the Associated Press this weekend enraged a few far-left publications. Their point of contention: A fact-check on Beto O’Rourke (and by extension anyone promoting the Green New Deal) revealed the United Nations didn’t claim we’re on the verge of death and destruction in 12 years of we don’t reverse climate change immediately.

O’Rourke was campaigning last Thursday in Iowa when he said, “This is our final chance. The scientists are absolutely unanimous on this. That we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.”

But, as the Associated Press concluded, this isn’t even close to being true:

There is no scientific consensus, much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem.

A report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, drawn from the work of hundreds of scientists, uses 2030 as a prominent benchmark because signatories to the Paris agreement have pledged emission cuts by then. But it’s not a last chance, hard deadline for action, as it has been interpreted in some quarters.

“Glad to clear this up,” James Skea, co-chairman of the report and professor of sustainable energy at Imperial College London, told The Associated Press. The panel “did not say we have 12 years left to save the world.”

He added: “The hotter it gets, the worse it gets, but there is no cliff edge.”

“This has been a persistent source of confusion,” agreed Kristie L. Ebi, director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the University of Washington in Seattle. “The report never said we only have 12 years left.”

The report forecasts that global warming is likely to increase by 0.5 degrees Celsius or 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit between 2030 and 2052 “if it continues to increase at the current rate.” The climate has already warmed by 1 degree C or 1.8 degrees F since the pre-Industrial Age.

Even holding warming to that level brings harmful effects to the environment, the report said, but the impact increases greatly if the increase in the global average temperature approaches 2 degrees C or 3.6 degrees F.

“The earth does not reach a cliff at 2030 or 2052,” Ebi told AP. But “keep adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and temperatures will continue to rise.”

As much as climate scientists see the necessity for broad and immediate action to address global warming, they do not agree on an imminent point of no return.

Cornell University climate scientist Natalie M. Mahowald told the AP that a 12-year time frame is a “robust number for trying to cut emissions” and to keep the increase in warming under current levels.

But she said sketching out unduly dire consequences is not “helpful to solving the problem.”

The story was widely distributed but didn’t cause much of a ruckus because it was part of a weekly recap story that included fact-checking on President Trump. But it’s starting to get much more attention now thanks to several progressive publications who are emphatic in their belief that the Associated Press is wrong.

Here are a couple of headlines we found from two of the most prominent progressive publications, DailyKos and ThinkProgress:

Daily Kos

Think Progress

Unfortunately for the leftists, neither these articles nor any of the others I read calling out the Associated Press were able to give better examples than the United Nations’ climate change people in rebunking the debunked science. They definitely didn’t counter the fact-checking done on the claims by O’Rourke, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or any of the Democratic contenders for President, all of whom are saying that the consensus is there and practically unanimous.

It’s not unanimous. Not even close.

The narrative has been built by the hyper-leftists that we’re all going to die in a dozen years if we don’t elect radical progressives immediately. They get annoyed when conservatives counter their claims, but they get full-blown unhinged from reality when leftists at the U.N. and A.P. do it.

When Biden enters the race, he’ll lurch left, proving the Democratic Party is lost forever

When Biden enters the race hell lurch left proving the Democratic Party is lost forever

I have a confession to make. I like Joe Biden. No, I don’t like his politics. But, unlike Bernie, Beto, Kamala, or any of those who are officially in the Democratic fray, Joe is the only one I could see myself having a beer with and talking about things… as long as none of it has to do with politics.

The other thing about Biden over the decades is that he seems like one of the “common sense” moderate Democrats that once filled the halls of Capitol Hill during the Reagan-Bush-Clinton years. He’s not a radical progressive espousing socialistic principles or calling for us to abolish planes and cows.

Unfortunately, that’s going to change. When he enters the Presidential race, he won’t be the moderate Democrat that he’s been in the past. He’s going to let out his hyper-leftist core in an effort to match the lunacy of Bernie and Co.

In fact, in his recent semi-run-announcement, he even declared something that tipped his hand not only to the fact he’s strongly considering running but that he’ll paint himself as a radical progressive.

“I know I get criticized. I’m told I get criticized by the new left,” Biden said told the audience at the First State Democratic Dinner. “I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the — anybody who would run.”

The “news” in all this was pronounced that he gaffed his way into admitting he was running. But the actual story is in how he’s going to run. Just like every major candidate, he’s going to embrace the hyper-leftists that control the way primaries work now. They came close to controlling the narrative in 2016, but the Democratic Establishment stole their thunder and ruined their candidate. That won’t happen this time. Whoever gets nominated is going to draw from the depths of the most leftist perspectives imaginable within the Democratic Party. They’re going full-blown socialist, and even a former moderate like Biden can read that particular writing on the wall.

The problem with making bold leftist promises to win primaries is that the inevitable shift to the center following the nomination can only go so far. It won’t be like Hillary Clinton who didn’t have to run too far to the left to win the nomination. In 2020, the winner will have to be as left as they come, which is why every candidate is currently in the process of trying to out-stupid one another.

Any hopes that Biden might be the moderate exception can be tossed out the window. He’s going to be joining his comrades in their communistic ways. He may not like it deep down, but then again, he might find that he loves it. There’s really no way to know what’s actually solid and what’s fluid in the hearts and minds of modern politicians.

All of this can be broken down to one conclusion: The Democratic Party is lost. They’ve succumbed to the radical nature of their base and there’s no way to go back in the near future. In fact, the only thing that might be able to save the party is if they actually get power, install their radical ideas, and destroy the country. Then, many will realize how wrong they were, but at that point it will be too late.

We need now, more than ever, to spread the conservative message to the masses. We regularly ask for financial help since we’re a crowdfunded news outlet. I’m asking again right now.

Just as we must fight the leftward lurch of Republicans, we must also destroy the hyper-leftist mentality that’s taking over the Democratic Party. They’ll annihilate the nation if they’re allowed.
