Democrats are building a terrifying platform as they embrace hyper-leftism

Published

on

The biggest fear of Republicans following the 2008 election was that President Obama and his party’s control of the House and Senate would mean socialism was going to quickly manifest into laws. We were given Obamacare as the major Democratic “victory” during their two years of control, and at the time it seemed horrible.

Compared to the direction the Democratic Party is heading now as we prepare for the 2020 election season, Obamacare now seems mild compared to the radical progressive ideas being floated by candidates. They don’t just want to propel us into socialism. They have their sights set even further to the left.

If conservatives just a few months ago were asked to create a parody of the Democratic platform, it wouldn’t look much different from the actual platform the Democrats are creating.

Let’s be clear. Words matter, as the left is wont to say. Their own words are striking such dangerous chords, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which they could possibly walk them back. It’s standard operating procedure for candidates, particularly presidential candidates, to push to the extremes as they try to win their party’s nomination, then to dial it back towards the center when they’re in the general election. But the extremes Democratic candidates like Senators Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are pushing are so far to the left, even “dialing it back” would only bring them into the far-left zone of socialism. They’ve gone so far to the left with their proposals that anything resembling a moderate proposal will seem alien to their followers.

In other words, they’ve pushed well beyond the limits of pragmatic leftism and entered the fantasy world of hyper-leftism.

It isn’t just the candidates. Lesser politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are leading the charge to convince Democratic voters their place in a near-future America is one that unites the nation in suffering. They’re pitching their ideas as essentially forcing successful people to share the wealth, but the actual results of their policies, if ever implemented, would be dragging every American into a collective state of servitude. Only the elite leftists who clothe themselves in a protective coating of their sheep-like followers will go unscathed by these destructive policies.

I don’t want to go into specifics about Medicare-for-All, 90% tax rates, gun confiscations, late-term abortions, open borders, or any of the other ludicrous concepts the hyper-leftists are pushing because I want you to put on the lens of discernment regarding all of their policies. Conservatives will fight the individual policy proposals that are clearly reprehensible, but it’s important that more Americans make themselves aware of the other end of the Democrats’ platform spectrum. The obviously insane proposals should worry us, but it’s the subtle planting of hyper-leftist seeds that concern me even more.

For example, it’s easy to overlook the dangers of the Democrats’ proposed beefing up of border security by improving technology and increasing personnel numbers at ports of entry. They’re even recommending adding more ports of entry to make them more accessible to those traveling across the border legally. On the surface, these may seem like good ideas and at worst, they’re simply attempts by Democrats to pretend they’re tough on border security while denying us a border wall. But if we dig a little deeper, we’ll see that these proposals have multiple dangers most Americans will overlook.

I’ll use a football analogy to illustrate this point. Imagine if a head coach announces the week before a game that his defensive gameplan is to shut down the opposing team’s best receiving by triple-covering him. He’s going to put his two best cornerbacks and the free safety on this receiver at all times. What will the opposing team do? They’ll prepare to throw to other open receivers knowing there’s no way to triple-cover one receiver without leaving others wide open.

The Democrats’ border security plan is similar. They’re saying we should put all of our border security money and efforts into protecting the ports of entry. They’re also declaring they will not allow for a border wall or other improvements of security open areas because they’re stacking the ports of entry with as much security as they can. The opposing team, in this case represented by illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, criminals, and possibly even terrorists, will read what the Democrats are proposing as a prompt to establish more routes in the vast unprotected areas along the border.

Most conservatives are so focused on Democrats blocking the wall, they’re missing the dangers of their actual border security proposals.

We need to apply this same lens of discernment to all policies coming from the left. This wasn’t always the case. In fact, this is a relatively new development, considering most Democrats favored real border security efforts just a decade ago.

It’s time to not only rail against the obvious injections of hyper-leftism into the Democratic Party but to also recognizing the more subtle attempts to subvert our rights, destroy our sovereignty, and fundamentally transform this nation into a globalist hub of misery to be shared with the rest of the world.

Conservatives once feared what Democrats would do in the future, but those fears are being realized in dramatic fashion today. This new breed of Democrats make the Obamas and the Clintons seem quite moderate. This new breed of Democrats are an existential threat to the nation itself.

When Joe Biden first ran for president, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hadn’t been born

When Joe Biden first ran for President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hadnt been born

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born in October, 1989, well into George H.W. Bush’s term in the White House. Had then-Senator Joe Biden had his way, he would have been sitting in the Oval Office around the time the young Congresswoman was born.

Biden’s first run for president wasn’t much of a run. He had plagiarized components of speeches made by Neil Kinnock, leader of the British Labour Party. What made it worse is that he even mimicked personal details of Kinnock’s speeches that talked about family, something that drew ridicule and condemnation as it seemed likely he fabricated aspects of his life to match that of Kinnock.

But that’s not going to be the issue for Biden in 2020. His real problem is his label as a moderate without any leftist-favored intersections of race, gender, or sexual preference. This isn’t the time in history for a Democrat to win the nomination by relying on the Establishment wing of the party. Many Democrats still blame the DNC for supporting Hillary Clinton as the reason Donald Trump is President today. Had they backed the favorite Democratic-Socialist of 2016, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), his supporters believe he would have been able to defeat Trump. We’ll never know, but that won’t change the challenge Biden has with his reputation of being in the murky middle.

As Rush Limbaugh pointed out, Biden may be the best chance the Democrats have of defeating Trump, but he doesn’t really stand a chance in the primaries. This may be true despite his frontrunner status. Since most of the candidates are pushing further and further to the left with their radical policy proposals, whichever one emerges as the last hyper-leftist radical progressive standing will draw in the support from the others with very limited upside for Biden once the radicals start falling off.

No matter which way you cut it, Biden is going to have to lurch to the left to try to suspend disbelief among the primary voters who want to see more Justice Democrats and fewer Establishment Democrats in office. Biden may have too much history as a moderate to suddenly paint himself as a progressive, but that won’t stop him from trying.

Will age and a long history of White House ambitions harm Joe’s chances? Absolutely. The New (Justice) Democratic Party of AOC doesn’t want an old white guy representing them. They will do whatever they can to make him leave the race.

Joe Biden invokes Charlottesville to announce his presidential campaign

Joe Biden invokes Charlottesville to announce his presidential campaign

The worst kept secret in DC has finally been made official. Former Vice President Joe Biden has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President. The Establishment wing of the party is mostly rejoicing.

Unlike many who have already announced their candidacy by going on talk shows for the audience energy, Biden’s announcement came in the form of a video, reminiscent of how Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy in 2015. In the video, Biden claims to have been driven to run against President Trump following the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally and protests in which counter-protester Heather Danielle Heyer was killed by a white supremacist. It wasn’t the event itself but the President’s infamous reaction to the incident that Biden claims was his inspiration to run.

He joins a crowded field as one of the two frontrunners. Former candidate and current Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is ahead in some polls, behind in others, but the two are far ahead of the rest of the field.

Some doubts sprung up about whether or not he would run following a report by former Democratic lawmaker Lucy Flores that Biden inappropriately touched her and kissed her on the back of her head without permission. She was appalled because, among other things, she hadn’t had time to wash her hair that morning.

Now that it’s official, Biden is sure to continue making waves. Whether or not he has enough support from the moderate wing to overtake the other candidates, nearly all of whom are radical progressives, remains to be seen.

Why full-blown #NeverTrumpers on the right are wrong to embrace Democrats

Published

Why full-blown NeverTrumpers on the right are wrong to embrace Democrats

In 2016, I supported Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the GOP nomination. I supported him all the way through to the Republican National Convention and was among those holding out for the tiniest possibility that he could somehow be gifted the nomination by a magical “conscience” vote. When it didn’t happen, I skulked off knowing candidate Trump would bring about challenges for the nation if he won. But…

… and this is a big but…

… there was absolutely no scenario that would have made me wish for, cheer on, or vote for Hillary Clinton.

She was bad. This new batch of Democrats running for the White House are even worse.

I am no longer a Republican. I had high hopes for a third party I co-founded, but it went in a different direction from where I initially wanted to take it, so now I’m officially an Independent. But one thing hasn’t changed. There is still absolutely no scenario in which I could support socialism-loving, pro-abortion, anti-gun, big government preaching Democrats. Even the “moderates” in the race are lurching to the left. If Joe Biden ends up winning the nomination as the only semi-rational Democrat (almost) in the race, I still couldn’t support him.

Today, there are still plenty of things President Trump does that discourage me. His bump-stock ban opened Panora’s Box for future gun confiscations and his administration’s push for Red Flag Gun Laws is only Constitutional if you eliminate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments. I am often struck with hope that deals are in the works to finally end his destructive tariffs, but there’s always a roadblock. As North Korean dictator Kim Jong un visits Russia’s Vladimir Putin, I’m reminded of the debacle we witness as the “negotiations” to end their nuclear program were completely botched.

But here’s the thing. He’s our President. From the beginning of his administration, I’ve consistently said I’d praise him when he does right and I’d criticize him when he does wrong. This type of intellectual honesty is not present in either the #AlwaysTrump camp nor the #NeverTrump camp. Just yesterday, I Tweeted agreement with three out of four points Charlie Kirk made about the President’s successes. By mentioning there wasn’t really a North Korean deal in sight and it should’t be considered a victory, I was summarily attacked for being a “pearl clutching” Democrat or something like that.

The same happens when I praise the President, only much worse. I won’t even mention the things that are sent to me on social media, through direct messages, and via email. Many of the folks who followed me when I supported Cruz are terribly offended by my support for the border wall, for example. They tend to forget that Cruz supports the wall as well as the fact that we desperately need it. To many #NeverTrumpers, any praise for actions the President does, even if they’re conservative, is a betrayal to the credo of “orange man bad.”

I wish the President would let someone read his Tweets just to prevent him from embarrassing himself. I wish he’d alert his staff of policy changes instead of making them react to Tweets. I wish he’d stop talking about how great he is all the time. I wish he could be a statesman instead of a strongman. But as our President, he has my support. As someone who has reversed many of the evils from the previous administrations, he has my praise. As a President who is willing to acknowledge Israel as a sovereign nation and our ally, he has my pleasantly surprised smile.

One does not have to gush over the President to be a supporter. One does not have to hate everything he does to be critical. It’s preferable to look at each individual action and determine if it’s good for America or not. That level of intellectual honesty is sorely needed right now, but instead it is conspicuously absent. We are polarized. Either Trump is evil or Trump is godlike depending on which tribe you’ve sworn your allegiance to. Personally, my allegiance is to my God, my family, and my country, and I am fully capable of molding my support or not for individual policies, choices, or words based upon these three criteria.

Sometimes I’m asked how I can be a Christian and support a man who is clearly not. I look to Daniel, Joseph, and others for guidance in situations like that, but I also remember Romans 13:1:

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

I do not have to support the President’s adulterous affections or misogynist statements in order to support many of his policies. But perhaps most importantly I cannot justify supporting the existential threat of socialism just because I object to our leader’s personal sins. I wouldn’t leave my wife alone with him, but that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to his desire to end visa overstays.

Then, there’s the issue of abortion. Can a Christian say, “Trump is too sinful to support” and then support a pro-abortion Democrat as a result?

Lastly, there’s the challenge of pushing the conservative philosophy, an act that superseding my personal feelings about President Trump. He is malleable. We’ve seen this time and time again, especially when he’s been on the verge of shifting to the left on important issues. Those who incessantly oppose him cannot help sway him towards the right side of an issue. If they’re attacking him when he’s being conservative, their attacks on him when he’s being progressive are meaningless.

It’s time for #NeverTrumpers to ask themselves if we’re really better off with someone they like better even if that person is a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialism-loving Democrat. The right answer is obviously “no.”
