Getting Democrats on the record for Green New Deal is great but its just the start

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to force Democrats on record either supporting or opposing the Green New Deal. It’s a classic move that works wonders whenever a party starts to step into the fringes, such as the insane realm in which the Green New Deal currently resides intellectually. This can be a strong play, but Republicans must follow up with a tremendous push to expose the truth regardless of how Democrats vote.

The problem is there are plenty of people who really like the concept of the Green New Deal. That puts the Democrats in a strange position of having something their base seems to like in principle, but that’s so indefensible in its details that voting in favor of it puts them individually in a pickle.

Three are three ways this could go down if McConnell forces a vote.

  1. Some Democrats pretend to love it while others avoid it. There won’t be too many Democrats who outright vote against it, but there may be a good number who simply choose not to vote on it. This scenario is arguably a best-case scenario for Democrats as it would signal to Independents that the party as a whole hasn’t gone insane while securing the passions of the base behind certain Senators, particularly those running for President in 2020.
  2. Democrats support it wholesale. If a vast majority of Democrats support it, this will seem to be a win for Republicans. But that would only happen if the GOP continues further and applies tremendous pressure to inform the people why it’s such a bad idea. If they don’t, their gambit of getting Democrats on record could lead to a sheep-like following of the deal from the left that could actually backfire on Republicans.
  3. Most Democrats don’t support it. If the Democratic Party decides to rein in their maverick Congresswoman from New York, this would be the time. By separating out the greater Democratic body from the radical ideas coming from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others, they’ll alert the press and the people that they’re still trying to maintain a semblance of order and common sense in the party ahead of an election year.

In the third scenario, Republicans will want to take this opportunity to start ignoring Ocasio-Cortez and the far-left fringe and focus on whatever policy recommendations come out of the major candidates. We can assume they’d either deflect or try to come up with an alternative to the Green New Deal, one that is more palatable and grounded in reality. Even though the strategy itself would be different following scenario 3 than it would be with scenario 2 or 1, the basic premise remains: expose the craziness coming from Democrats.

Of course, this third scenario is unlikely based on what we’ve seen so far from candidates. They’ll push their colleagues to support the deal knowing it cannot pass and use it as a rallying cry similar to how Republicans used Obamacare repeal before getting the power to actually repeal it. Just as Republicans bluffed by passing a clean repeal in 2015 for President Obama to veto, so too will the Democrats likely go on record supporting a Green New Deal knowing it won’t actually become law any time soon.

Whether scenario two or scenario one happen, it’s imperative for Republicans to regain their footing in the emotional side of politics. There’s a potential for them to start fundraising and messaging immediately behind the threat of radical socialist ideas permeating through this new version of the Democratic Party. That’s what McConnell hopes to achieve by pushing a vote.

Now is the time to force Democrats into a choice. Are they the party of lukewarm leftism their leaders want them to be, or are they the radical progressives who should terrify intelligent Americans with their insane proposals? Let’s find out.

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.

Steve Deace: Media isn’t biased. It’s opposition media.

Steve Deace Media isnt biased Its opposition media

If you haven’t heard that a Reuters reporter held damaging information about Beto O’Rourke during his Senate campaign against Ted Cruz (R-TX), only to reveal it after he announced his run for president, you’re not alone. It wasn’t given much coverage by mainstream media since it points out the opposing nature of the media against anyone and anything conservative.

That’s the state of the media in 2019. It’s been like this for a while.

Conservative commentator Steve Deace Tweeted the truth about the media as demonstrated by their willingness to cover up for O’Rourke:

While most on the right seem to believe the President is the victim of a media bent on opposing him, it’s actually much bigger than that. Had Trump not won the GOP nomination, Ted Cruz or whoever emerged to beat Hillary Clinton would be facing the same opposition from the press. They may be more bold as a result of Trump’s win, but their ideology hasn’t changed. They don’t just oppose Trump. They don’t just oppose Republicans. They oppose anything that seems to be right-leaning.

The media has emerged as the communications and propaganda department for the left. Keep in mind that it’s not just Democrats they support. Their collective ideology is opposed to anything that smells conservative. This is just another reasons we ask our readers to support us any way they can. Being crowdfunded means we have the ideological independence to fight against those in the media who operate in opposition to conservatism. We simply need more revenue in order to get the message out to more people.

The biggest challenge the media has had since President Trump’s election is holding back their bias. But there’s a difference between pretending to be unbiased in reporting and outright covering up for the Democrats in an effort to help them in their election chances. The left is now claiming the coverup was all about saving juicy snippets for a book, but let’s get real here. The writer was well aware that news about O’Rourke breaking the law as part of a hacker group would have not only hurt his chances in his campaign against Ted Cruz. It could have ruined his chances of being propped up as a Democratic candidate.

This wasn’t about a book. It was about protecting a guy mainstream media adores.

Some would say the timing is bad for this information to come out. This is incorrect. This is the best time, shortly after his announcement, for him to address the issue and put it behind him before getting into the heat of the debates. It’s a time when this news will have the lowest possible impact on his presidential chances.

Some tell us we need to be unbiased rather than being a conservative news outlet. If the scale ever tips away from the far-leftist lean it currently has, we may consider it. In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting the good fight.

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omar’s district: ‘When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you…’

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omars district When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you

The controversy over Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) antisemtic statements and Tweets have garnered the freshman Congresswoman criticism from some unlikely sources, including many of the Muslim leaders in her own community. They, along with Jewish Democrats in the district that voted for Omar, are uniting to condemn the way Omar has been handling her first few months in office.

“When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you, you’re not doing something right,” said Mohamed Ahmed, a Muslim activist who spoke with a panel of other local leaders.

The Congresswoman came under fire for her statements, but the response from Congress was muted. Rather than focusing on antisemitism or even including her name in an “anti-hate” resolution, they watered it down to include essentially any form of hate and refused to note Omar’s role as the catalyst for the resolution in the first place.

In other words, she got off without even getting a slap in the wrist.

But the words are still out there and thus far the antisemitic Congresswoman seems more concerned about other people’s reactions than whether or not her words were wrong. Apparently, she still sees no problem in what she said, but will refrain from saying them in public for political expediency.

My Take

As noted here before, one of the goals of the Democratic Party is to normalize antisemitism. While everyone seems to be focused on whether or not Omar is sorry for her words, nobody’s wondering why the Democratic Party as a whole seems to be perfectly fine with her feelings.

It’s getting harder and harder for conservative news outlets to speak out against such things. It’s not that there aren’t enough willing to say it, but between social media and search – the two primary traffic drivers for many conservative sites – they have to tone down their news so as not to get banned. This is just one of many reasons it’s so important for our readers to support us so we can continue bringing these stories to light.

The last thing we need is for someone like Ilhan Omar continuing to spread her feelings unabated. It’s clear the Democrats are unwilling to do something about it. Perhaps it’s time to help a moderate Democrat win a primary election against her. She was endorsed by the Justice Democrats, so it’s pretty clear how her radical ideologies emerged.

The world needs to know that Ilhan Omar doesn’t represent American perspectives. More importantly. voters in her district need to know this. We need to keep spreading the truth.
