Despite 20 candidates the Democrats are down to a five-person race for now

California is the Democratic Party in a nutshell… a very large nutshell. The state is not only the most populous and richest, but it also tends to set trends for progressivism. The latest poll from California shows five candidates in double-digits while everyone else is registering no better than three percent.

Things can change quickly with the debates starting in two weeks, but as of today it’s a five-person race.

Vice President Joe Biden is the frontrunner in every recent poll, but his numbers have been steadily dropping and he has stumbled over everything possible. It’s no wonder his campaign has kept him relatively hidden; he has very little to gain and plenty to lose every time he opens his mouth at this early stage in the race. Still, he’s the only moderate (though his views have been lurching to the left, as we anticipated) with a chance at the nomination.

Senator Elizabeth Warren is surging thanks in large part to throwing out new radical policy proposals every other day. She came in second in the California poll and seems to be the most likely recipient of some strong endorsements, including Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Warren’s ideological partner in the Senate, Bernie Sanders, is heading in the opposite direction. He was challenging Biden in some polls just a month ago, but now seems to be falling. As Warren throws out fresh ideas, Sanders seems to be recycling his 2016 campaign speeches with the same policy proposals. The Democratic Party of today is not one that likes consistency, so Sanders’s strength in holding true to his beliefs may end up being what sinks him.

California’s own Senator Kamala Harris is stuck in 4th place in her home state. Viewed early on as a favorite for the nomination thanks to the early California primary, her personality has been her biggest problem. She just isn’t very likable. But she’s also one of two women and the only minority in the top five, so she’s going to hang around. She may even hang around long enough to move up if she does well in the debates.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg rounds out the top five. He came out of nowhere to stir interest as the only openly LGBTQ major candidate and has been helped by plenty of positive press. He also has a better personality than most of the candidates, and though he is merely a mid-sized city mayor, he has done exceptional well under the national spotlight.

Everyone else, for now, are non-competitive. Things can change quickly, of course, especially with debates on the way. One fumble similar to Rick Perry’s “oops” moment in the 2012 race can tank any of them. One strong debate soundbite can revive interest in the fading candidates like Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker. But the five currently leading in California seem to be the cream of this particular crop.

The clown car has already been divided into those who have a realistic chance and those who need a miracle. Or two. Who do you think the President would prefer to face in the general election?

Exposing the truth about Republicans

Which party founded the KKK, supported slavery, and opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote?

A recent video from Will Witt from PragerU exposes that people do not really know that much about the Republican and Democratic parties. The revelation of the facts of the matter shocked most of the people, showing that the government indoctrination system is woefully inadequate to educating the country. No matter how much money they waste.

Now that the Left is doing all they can to render the words racist and sexist meaningless, while numbing everyone to real crimes against certain minorities. It’s vitally important to correct the record on which political party began with the purpose of the abolition of slavery. The party that started the – and revived – the KKK and which party opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote.

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomas’s hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomass hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The President of the United States needs to be able to call out lies, especially when they’re told by people who may share ideological alignment. Republicans should be the first to call out Republicans when one of them is wrong, and Democrats should expect the same from their own ranks.

There’s another characteristic important for a president. They can’t be gullible, again with an emphasis on being gullible to stories coming from within one’s own tribe. There are too many false narratives in the world of American politics, so being able to see a blatant lie for what it is makes for an important presidential trait.

Georgia state representative Erica Thomas lied. She played the race card, turned it into an anti-Trump dog whistle, and then doubled down when confronted by her fellow Democrat she was trying to slander. But three Democratic candidates quickly backed her on her tall tale. None of them have retracted now that the truth is known. And no Democratic candidate has called her out for perpetrating another hate hoax.

There is real racism in America and it should be confronted. But the breathless rants of people desperately trying to emerge in the crowded Democratic field are often too quick to pass the wrong judgment when it suits their narrative. Such is the case for three reactionary and gullible candidates:

Bill de Blasio, Beto O’Rourke, and Julian Castro failed the jump-to-conclusions test, the see-through-the-lies test, and the make-everything-about-race test. It’s no surprise that their candidacies for president are failing or that they’re desperately attempting to pander to the African-American community by backing a false narrative. There was no racism involved in this incident, and most Americans had the sense to question the validity of Thomas’s outrageous claim. But in the world of Democrats who are stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, the only surprise is that fewer didn’t fall for it. Perhaps it was fortunate for them it happened over the weekend.

Hate hoaxers like Erica Thomas should be condemned, not embraced for their hatred. The three who were too gullible to see through her fabrications are not presidential nomination material.

The first Democratic candidate to call out Erica Thomas’s lies gets my endorsement for the party’s nomination. I still won’t vote for them next November, but at least they’ll stand out as the one honest person among two dozen race hoax enablers.

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

The Democratic election strategy for 2020 is still a work-in-progress, but that’s not stopping communist and socialist organizations from putting together voter mobilization efforts to stop President Trump from winning a second term. Their focus is on electing the Democratic nominee, whoever it may be. To do this, they are targeting reliable Democrats who normally do not vote.

Their targets are the south in states like Texas, Florida, and Arizona. Republican strategists are confident that the President will win reelection, but losing any of these states could ruin his chances.

This report by Gina Shakespeare at The Epoch Times breaks down the plans by the socialists and communists. If they are successful, a Democrat will be in the White House in 2021.
