Who is the most popular Democratic President in the modern era? Hands down, it’s Barack Obama, who has been placed on such a high pedestal by Democrats even before his tenure was finished that many thought his legend would never be brought down to earth, at least not in the minds of progressives.
That thinking is so 2018.
The man who gave us Obamacare, gay marriage, and DACA is quickly transforming into “yesterday’s Democratic Party” representative. From family separation and “cages” at the border to attempted trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership that rubbed progressives the wrong way, many of the policies Obama pushed seem to be anathema in the rapidly evolving Democratic Party of today.
Could the champion of progressives past be the goat of progressives present? If so, what does that say about his Vice President’s chances of winning the nomination?
It’s a natural side-effect of a party that is lurching so far to the left, those in the center can only see a distant speck when they try to peer in their direction. Moderates still remain, of course, which is why Biden still leads. But considering he’s the lone major moderate in a sea of hyper-leftists at the top, one would think he’d be closer to 50% by virtue of not being a socialist.
Some might argue that it’s just too early to tell, and polls are giving inaccurate numbers because the vast majority of the population couldn’t name eight of the 23 candidates off the top of their head. If they know Mayor Pete Buttigieg, they probably only know he’s gay. If they know Kamala Harris, they may only recognize her from her handling of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. But it’s still odd that the lone major moderate is losing ground, not gaining it.
The reality is this: Today’s Democratic Establishment is dying a faster-than-expected death at the hands of the Democratic Socialists who place the blame on them for delivering President Trump to the Oval Office. They say Bernie Sanders would have won the general election if he didn’t get cheated by the DNC. They also say socialism has never been truly tried, which should tell you where they stand in respects to grasping the realities of this world.
But instead of looking to Hillary vs Bernie, we should be looking at the beacons that are glowing within the party. Nancy Pelosi might be Speaker of the House, but it’s Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley who are speaking on behalf of Democrats in the House. Chuck Schumer might be the Senate Minority Leader, but Sanders, Harris, and Elizabeth Warren are representing the will of the party within the Senate.
All of this points to one inevitable conclusion: for the New Democratic Party to emerge, they’re going to have to tear down the legacy of Barack Obama. He’s not the paragon of hyper-leftist thought we all assumed he was when he was President. As far to the left as most Republicans felt he was, his policies are downright moderate and even conservative compared to the way the party has been heading just in the last couple of years. To be clear, I’m not suggesting he was a moderate. I’m saying he will be called a moderate by those who are steering the party away from the middle.
And if he’s declared a moderate, he can no longer be the progressives’ champion.
The radicalization of the Democratic Party by the hyper-leftists has been swift and unprecedented. Obama’s legacy in the eyes of progressives will be as a stepping stone at best. That should scare you about the unhinged nature of the New Democratic Party.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
