As Pelosi betrays leftists to pass bipartisan border bill the battle with AOC officially begins

Pundits are hailing the quick retreat by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as a sign she succumbed to GOP pressure from the Senate, but her new willingness to reluctantly pass the border funding bill without restrictions came down to two things: pressure from moderates in her own caucus and the political calculation that failing to do so will backfire on the Democrats come election time.

But this strategic retreat will have much deeper and longer-lasting repercussions against Pelosi. Those repercussions will come in the form of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her merry band of radical progressives.

The freshman Congresswoman has been seeking the proper rallying cry to lead the revolt her Justice Democrats handlers have been planning since 2017. This is it. The timing isn’t perfect; the better time to start a revolt would have been after the Democratic presidential candidates had been whittled down to ten or so, but they’re going to take this opportunity and run with it.

For background, the Justice Democrats aren’t out to get more Democrats in power, though that would be a benefit for them if done within the context of their actual goal. They were formed to remove “moderate” Democrats and replace them with radicals. But to them, people like Pelosi, who most consider as leaning more progressive than moderate, are practically right-wingers. Anyone short of a full-blown socialist and social justice warrior who embraces open borders and Modern Monetary Theory is too moderate to the Justice Democrats. In fact, they’re rather hurt the Democratic Party in the short-term as long as they can rebuild it in their image in the long-term.

And with social media and easily manipulated sentiment among voters, “long-term” is still a matter of years, not decades.

So Pelosi’s withdrawal from an untenable position on the border funding bill may make sense to her, the GOP, and a majority of Democrats in the House, but it is pure evil in the minds of the radical progressives. It doesn’t matter to the radicals that if Pelosi stuck to her guns and fought for restrictions in the original House bill, she and the Democratic Party as a whole would be seen as perpetuating the crisis at the border. This would be used against them at the ballot box, especially as the President continues to lay full blame for the crisis on the Democrats obstructing.

In reality, the bipartisan Senate bill is a consolation prize for Democrats. It doesn’t solve problems. It offers a few band-aids to slow the degradation of the situation, but much more needs to be done. It’s ironic that without pressure from the far-left, Pelosi’s original bill would likely have matched the one in the Senate and talking heads would be scrambling to declare who deserves the credit. Now, Pelosi is made to look like the goat and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell looks like a master tactician. Neither is completely true.

There will be a coup attempt soon. It could be in days. It’s more likely to happen in a few months. But before the 2020 elections, the Justice Democrats’ puppets in Congress will lead a revolt against Pelosi. It’s a win-win situation for them. If they succeed, they’ll be flexing their muscles. If they fail, which is likely, it will be the rallying call they need to primary “moderates” and continue to push their extreme agenda.

AOC and the Justice Democrats are ideologues without a care nor a clue. They don’t think or act like politicians. They think and act like activists. Unfortunately, that means as they grow, so too do the chances of America’s fall to socialism.

Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost

Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost

California Governor Gavin Newsom has one of the most prolific string of political failures ever seen in the United States. It seems like everything he touches turns to sludge. San Francisco, where he was on the Board of Supervisors or Mayor for 14 straight years, has become literally covered in human feces and is the homelessness capitol of America. As governor, his short tenure has already seen a state whose economy was crumbling fall further faster. But when it comes to getting elected, he’s a champion.

Why? Because California is completely lost. Those of us who live here realize it’s true. Despite unquestionable evidence that the state’s progressive policies are making things steadily worse, from high-and-still-growing taxes to unprecedented crime rates to the homeless problem that is not isolated to San Francisco, we continue to elect Democrats to drive us deeper into the hole. Despite the high taxes, we’re constantly running on budget deficits. How is this possible for a state so rich?

The answer is in the promises the Democrats make. And unfortunately, they keep many of their promises, which yields billions of dollars spent on a high-speed rail that was ill-conceived if it actually happened. But it didn’t. It’s massive amounts of money that accomplished nothing. Even when the programs “work,” they fail. More money has been spent per capita to stave off homelessness in San Francisco than anywhere else, yet it keeps getting worse.

Perhaps the biggest problem California has is believing the politicians. We get fed rhetoric that is so thick, it must be true because nobody would lie so blatantly. Except they really do lie. One of the latest was so big and ridiculous, even left-leaning PolitiFact had to call Newsom out.

Pants On Fire: Not Even Politifact Is Buying What Gavin Newsom Is Selling On San Francisco’s Homeless Problem

Politifact isn’t exactly the type of fact checking organization that rushes to defend Republicans or to take Democrats to task, so that they decided to take Newsom to the woodshed is worth mentioning.

When a lie is so egregious even your cheerleaders have to balk, you know you’ve gone a bit too far. But don’t expect Newsom to repent and come clean any time soon. As is part of the Democratic playbook, particularly in California, the most likely response is that he’s going to double down on his false claims. That’s what Democrats do when they’re caught in a lie.

If you’re curious, here’s Newsom’s most recent huge lie:

Gavin Newsom’s ridiculous claim: ‘Vast majority’ of San Francisco’s homeless people come from Texas

California Gov. Gavin Newsom claimed the “vast majority” of San Francisco’s homeless people come in from Texas.

San Francisco’s own homeless surveys contradict this. They show a large majority reported living in the city before becoming homeless, and just a fraction coming in from out-of-state.

Newsom’s office pointed to data from San Francisco’s bus ticket program for homeless people. But that defense doesn’t hold up. It shows just a small fraction, less than 7 percent, left for Texas, and doesn’t demonstrate that they originally came to San Francisco from that state.

In the end, we found Newsom made a ridiculous claim.

We rated it Pants on Fire.

Don’t blame California lawmakers for the state’s failures. They’re doing exactly what California residents want. People like Gavin Newsom are only fulfilling their promises to spend more, accomplish less, and keep the Democratic monopoly strong.

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

President says AOC ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President says AOC fuming that Tlaib Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President Trump took to Twitter to make fun of the opposition party as two of its most outspoken members, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, continue making headlines and stirring up controversy. He even threw in an accusation against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for good measure.

There are no indications that this is accurate, but that’s not the point. This isn’t hard policy or thoughtful analysis. It’s a petty jab, and while many Americans, including some of his fans, are against him taking shots at the opposition in such a manner, this is the society we live in and it includes a President who takes jabs on Twitter. You can stress over it or sit back and enjoy it. I choose the latter.

For AOC’s part, she took the jab with a chuckle.

Beyond the diversion this offers ahead of a weekend, reality is probably more closely reflected by the President’s Tweet than Democrats are comfortable admitting, at least the part about them being the face of the party. “The Squad” makes more headlines among the four of them than the rest of the Democrats combined, and this includes the powerful heads of committees who are actively investigating President Trump ahead of a possible impeachment.

Both Democrats and Republicans have different degrees of infatuation with “The Squad.” Are they a real threat to our republic, as many on both sides claim, or are they merely a diversion from real decisions being made in DC?
