The Democrats are about to go to war… with each other

The Democrats are about to go to war with each other

On the surface, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appears to be a woman in control of her caucus and the entirety of the House of Representatives. She has remained focused on her goal of thwarting anything and everything the Republicans try to do and has been the primary target of her presumed nemesis, President Trump.

Behind the scenes, it’s a very different story. Pelosi is under siege in ways she may not even be fully aware of as the handpicked minions of the Justice Democrats continue to exert their will on the party by making headlines and stirring up controversy. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) take turns being the head of the spear, but supporting actors like Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Ro Khanna (D-CA) are also working on headlines and calling out their colleagues in power for their party.

Pelosi took a jab at them last night on 60 Minutes by belittling AOC and her group, saying “that’s like five people.” This is the attack that will get most of the headlines, but it’s what she said shortly afterwards that will be considered the real fighting words for the hyper-leftist radical progressives in the party. Here is the important question from Leslie Stahl and answer by Pelosi:

Lesley Stahl: Well, Medicare for all– it’s not only being pushed by some members of your caucus, but also some of the presidential candidates. And it is allowing the president to say you’re all socialists.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Do you know that when we did Med– when Medicare was done by the Congress at the time, under Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan said, Medicare will lead us to a socialist dictatorship. This is– this is an ongoing theme of the Republicans. However– I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party.

As the Justice Democrats have stated, they know the Democratic Party isn’t ready for full-blown socialism. That’s what they’re trying to achieve, the fundamental change of the Democratic Party and eventually of America as a result. This answer by Pelosi is all the reason AOC and her posse need to start getting more aggressive against the moderate Democrats in leadership.

In fact, they’ve already been doing it. Tlaib launched an attack against the leaders in her party by saying they were only using the women of color in the caucus as tokens of diversity.

Unfortunately for Pelosi, the evidence can be spun to make this seem very correct. In reality, freshmen in Congress are usually treated this way until the can demonstrate their loyalty to the party, an ability to win reelection, and a willingness to back leadership. That’s the politics within the political games played in Washington DC under normal circumstances. But there’s nothing normal about the Justice Democrats or their puppets on Capitol Hill. They are outspoken. They are aggressive. They want it all now and they’re very capable of scolding the whole world through social media and with radical declarations in their statements.

And the radical base of the Democratic Party is eating it all up.

Pelosi has quietly tried to stifle the youngsters and put them in their place. She also tried to dissuade upheaval from within by having the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) blacklist any vendors who worked with primary challengers. Ocasio-Cortez, who famously beat long-time incumbent Joe Crowley to win her own nomination, lashed out against the plan.

Some might try to compare this to the Tea Party movement that helped the GOP win control of the House and Senate in 2010 and 2014. This really isn’t anything like it because the Justice Democrats have direct and intimate contact with their puppets on Capitol Hill. They are coordinated and unflinching; you won’t see a single one of them act like Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) when he abandoned the Tea Party and joined the Gang of 8 a year and a half after getting elected.

No, this new breed of hyper-leftists have no intention of playing politics. They’re trying to redefine politics, to mold Capitol Hill in the image the Justice Democrats have planted in their heads. It’s the image that these New Democrats are spreading across the base to the point nearly every 2020 Democratic candidate for President is veering as far to the left as possible.

One of two things will happen. Either Pelosi will get a hold of the reins and keep control of the majority of her party or the Justice Democrats will be able to steer their people while recruiting more until they have complete control of the Democratic Party going forward. If I’m placing bets, I’d put my money on the latter.

On one side, you have the group what we’ve always called radical progressives. On the other side, you have the group that makes Pelosi and the rest of Democratic leadership look like mushy moderates. Grab your popcorn, folks. This is going to get ugly.

Eric Swalwell’s attempt to troll the NRA results in embarrassing display of futility

Eric Swalwells attempt to troll the NRA results in embarrassing display of futility

Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell wanted to make a statement. He’s against guns and wanted to leave his mark on the nation’s largest gun owners’ rights advocates, the National Rifle Association (NRA). So, he went to the the NRA’s headquarters in Fairfax, VA, to hold a massive rally condemning the organization’s defense of the 2nd Amendment.

The results were embarrassing and conservatives took notice.

As most progressive news outlets pretended it didn’t happen despite the Congressman’s appeal to their desires of confiscating semi-automatic rifles and putting an end to the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), conservative media sources honed in on the unpopular candidate and the tiny crowd he was able to draw.

But they weren’t the only ones who took notice. The NRA itself pounced on the opportunity to ridicule one of their most vocal yet powerless critics:

The American people are waking up to two facts. First, the rhetoric of the left against gun ownership is antithetical to preventing gun violence because in the vast majority of cases, it is known criminals and not formerly law abiding citizens who are committing violence with firearms. Second, the instant reaction of the gun control advocates pushing for new gun laws following any highly publicized shooting almost never confronts the actual issue involved. Time and time again, new laws are proposed that would not have had an effect on the crimes committed had they been in effect before.

Crazy and evil people will do crazy and evil things. Punishing over a hundred million law abiding gun owners for the sins of the few is not a solution. The left knows this, but it’s a popular rallying cry so they stick to their story.

State Department investigation in Clinton email scandal reports 23 violations so far

State Department investigation in Clinton email scandal reports 23 violations so far

Every time someone outside the FBI takes a look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for her and her staff when she was Secretary of State, they see a situation that was dangerous to the security of the United States. The latest to come to this conclusion is the State Department itself, which has found 23 violations and seven infractions that were allegedly committed.

And that’s just the beginning. The investigation is likely going to continue until the beginning of September.

This information comes through a letter sent to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) who leads the security review, according to Fox News.

“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. “DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses.”

Current and former staffers who committed violations or multiple infractions will have them noted in their permanent record. This record is used for many purposes, including determinations on current and future security clearances. The letter did not indicate if criminal charges were possible for anyone, nor did it reveal any names of those being scrutinized.

Opinion

The FBI successfully protected Hillary Clinton and her staff throughout the 2016 election. Though one can argue former FBI Director James Comey helped her lose the election by announcing a continuation into the investigation weeks before election day, the body of actions taken by the FBI demonstrate she was being shielded from prosecution and any investigation that went too deep into her potentially criminal activities.

Thy wanted her to win. They had no intentions of derailing that possibility by doing their jobs.

Now that the State Department is on the case, there may actually be some closure for over the whole scandal. It’s unlikely her detractors will see any real form of justice served as a result, but those involved are less likely now to get out of this unscathed.

Quote

“omg.” – Huma Abedin upon finding out someone was trying to hack the private servers

Final Thoughts

We may never see Hillary Clinton in jail. We may never see anyone truly punished for putting America’s security interests at risk. But at the very least it appears we’ll get confirmation of wrongdoing, which is better than nothing.

Moderate vs progressive: Democrats on both sides tell the other they can’t beat Trump

Moderate vs progressive Democrats on both sides tell the other they cant beat Trump

Moderate Democrats are busy in the media delivering a message to progressives. Meanwhile, progressives are sending a message to moderates in the same manner. You can occasionally see both types of messages from different authors on the same left-wing publications from one day to the next. The funny part is, they’re both trying to deliver the same message.

Your candidate can’t win.

Moderates are pointing to polls. They’re pointing to logic. They believe Trump is polarizing enough that if the Democrats put up a “moderate” candidate like Joe Biden (though his moderate reputation doesn’t seem to match his radical views lately), they give themselves the best chance of winning the general election by appealing to the middle.

Progressives are pointing to recent history. They say they fell for that sales pitch in 2016 when Hillary Clinton was forced onto them and look how that turned out. Fool me once, they say…

Both have valid points. Biden is currently polling higher than anyone else against Trump, but polls are for suckers (see 2016) and are essentially meaningless at this early stage (see 2015 frontrunners Scott Walker and Jeb Bush). On the flip side, progressives believe their champions have more passion to inspire the middle and possibly even some Republicans who aren’t happy with Trump.

A lot of this internal strife has been prompted by the rise of Senator Elizabeth Warren. Mired in laughable obscurity in the polls following her Native American DNA test debacle and extending through most polls until the last month, the radical progressive has been throwing out socialist policy proposals like candy to the masses. And it’s working. She has now overtaken Senator Bernie Sanders in many polls to be slightly ahead of three of the five current favorites.

A former Clinton pollster is taking Warren seriously and believes she can’t beat the President:

The rise of Elizabeth Warren spells bad news for the Democratic Party

To be victorious in 2020, the Democratic Party must focus on pushing moderate economic policies that do not involve radical wealth taxes, on fixing the health care system without adopting extreme “Medicare for All” policies, and on compromises on immigration. To be sure, I believe in the Democratic primary process and that competing ideas and challenging the status quo is what we should do in a democracy. However, looking ahead to 2020, if the main goal of the party is to beat Trump, we must advocate for center of left policies that result in steady progress for the country, while still appealing to crucial moderates and independents.

The echoes from the other wing of the party are trying to paint Biden as worse than a moderate. They’re not even sure he’s really a Democrats, at least not one by today’s standards.

Beware Joe Biden’s “national unity” campaign: Win or lose, it’s a bad idea

Biden is willing to perform a little pseudo-wokeness on command — and to ditch supposedly cherished and considered principles to make the millennial snowflakes shut up — but he doesn’t pretend any of that matters. Liberals and progressives will have to make their peace with Biden (or not) if he becomes the nominee, which is par for the course in Democratic politics. But any talk about “pushing Biden to the left” or insisting on a progressive platform at next year’s convention is idiotic. That’s all dust in the wind in the general election, when his only pitch will be that he’s a normal adult who can beat Donald Trump.

These are both very different tunes than the ones being whistled during the 2016 Democratic nomination race. While Sanders’s fans were still very passionate, they weren’t really bashing Clinton. It was hard to remain “woke” and still attack the first major female contender for the White House for the sake of an old white guy. The two sides were generally nice to each other, especially compared to what we’ve seen in the press lately. They left the bickering to the Republicans, whether it was Chris Christie hitting Marco Rubio, Marco Rubio hitting Ted Cruz, Ted Cruz hitting John Kasich, or Donald Trump hitting everyone.

Again, look how that turned out. Democrats saw the bickering. They saw that in the end, it worked. Never-Trumpers notwithstanding, the GOP put the bickering aside when the dust settled and rallied behind the MAGA call.

Democrats are hoping for same thing for themselves, which is why the daggers are out now. They’re going to attack each other. Their fans are going to attack each other. Media personalities are going to attack each other. And whoever comes out of it with the nomination will call them all together for a group hug before taking on the President.

Maybe they’re both right. Maybe the progressives are right that a moderate can’t inspire enough people. Maybe the moderates are right that the progressives won’t get the middle. Either way, Trump looks poised to win.
