Tom Steyer to announce presidential run this week Maybe

The Democrats’ mega-donor of mega-donors has decided to reverse his previous intentions to not run for President and will be announcing his campaign launch on Tuesday, according to a report from staffers at two of his progressive organizations, Need to Impeach and NextGen America.

Steyer, who has donated more to Democrats over the years than anyone, has had a history of preparing to run for office, then backing out at the last minute. He was supposed to run for Senate in 2016 but pulled out. Then, in 2018, he even recorded a campaign video for a gubernatorial run before announcing to the press he decided against it. Much of his staff learned of the reversal through media coverage.

His latest supposed announcement was to run for President in January, 2019, but his Iowa trip turned out to be about him announcing he was not going to run. But rumblings from the radical progressive billionaire lately have stirred renewed anticipation that he might finally pull the trigger. He has been pleased by Jay Inslee and Elizabeth Warren, but the former has yet to be a blip on the radar and the latter has failed to inspire Steyer. Now, it seems he’ll be taking the fate of the Democratic Party into his own hands.

This is a blow to other Democratic candidates, not just because he’d become their 25th competitor but also because they’ve prized his potential as a financial ally in the nomination fight. Now, it seems that they’ll have to seek other billionaires to court unless Steyer drops out early.

Steyer has arguably been the most vocal private citizen opponent to the President. A self-made billionaire, Steyer has accused the President of not knowing how to properly handle the economy. Yet he has no answers when it’s pointed out how well the economy has reacted to Trump’s presidency. Then again, economic success is often different in the eyes of different beholders. Steyer could be seeing the push away from socialism as a detrimental effect of the Presidents time in office.

The environment is Steyer’s biggest focal point outside of attacking the President, which is what drew him to Inslee. This will play well for Steyer if he does decide to run as the Justice Democrats and their Congressional puppets have all said good things about Inslee’s environmental plan. If Steyer is the “green” candidate who is willing to make the Green New Deal a top priority, he could see an instant boost from endorsements by the radical wing of the party.

Despite the late start, Steyer would be a very quick frontrunner if he puts his fortune behind the early task of boosting name recognition. Currently, four of the five frontrunners – Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, and Warren – are all vying for the progressive vote with Joe Biden representing the Democratic Establishment vote. Steyer would cut into all five’s voter base and could help whittle the field down by sucking the remaining air out of the nomination room. Those who are running on fumes could find their campaigns completely dry up.

If he actually announces a run this time (and you never know with Steyer until it’s official), the dynamic of the race will change. He could become the primary radical in the race very quickly. It all depends on how well he’s received early on.

Elizabeth Pipko: Democrats ‘supported one anti-Semitic comment after another’

Elizabeth Pipko Democrats supported one anti-Semitic comment after another

Racism is real in America and there’s a push to attach it to President Trump. Anti-Semitism is among the hot topics being discussed by legacy media, especially after the President went after Jews living in America who vote Democrat.

Despite the left’s cries to make the GOP, President Trump, and all of his supporters seem like racists, the truth is starting to come out. Much of this is at the hands of “The Squad,” who ironically attempt to use the race card at every turn. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have gone so far as to call others racist while demonstrating their own bigotry in the same sentences.

Jewish activist Elizabeth Pipko was part of a panel of Fox Nation discussing the recent press by Democrats to reverse the anti-Semitism narrative back onto President Trump. As their party seems to be pulling further and further away from supporting Israel while attaching to the much larger worldwide Muslim population, it’s becoming increasingly clear they are at a crossroads. Today, most Jews are Democrats, but as the party embraces anti-Semitism as their new normal, how long can that support continue?

As Pipko pointed out, politicians must either condemn or support a stance. Silence is viewed as acceptance, and as Democratic lawmakers are conspicuously silent on “The Squad’s” anti-Semitism, we must take this as their measure of supporting it.

Dan Crenshaw on the Democrats’ goal

Dan Crenshaw on the Democrats' goal

Some say today’s Democratic Party is very different from the one in the recent past. “Evolving” views has made it impossible for anyone in the party to be pro-life, against illegal immigration, or favorable to the free market, especially as it pertains to healthcare. Others say this is the true face of the Democratic Party and has been for years, even decades, as they were biding their time until a moment in history when they could reveal their actual intentions.

From Medicare-for-All to the Green New Deal to open borders to full-blown socialism, today’s Democratic Party has openly embraced some of the most horrendous policy proposals this nation has ever seen. They’re the type of policies we’d expect to see from totalitarian regimes and communist nations, not the United States of America. But perhaps that’s the point.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has done a fine job taking to Twitter to express his concerns about Democrats and other major problems the nation faces. Last week, he posted a Tweet that deserves constant attention as it encapsulates the challenges conservatives face as we prepare for the 2020 election.

Though he only touched on a few points in his Tweet, the overarching message is clear. Democrats will not rest until they’ve brought an end to our republic. They have a different vision, one that is an existential threat to America.

America desperately needs the biggest red wave ever in 2020

America desperately needs the biggest red wave ever in 2020

I supported a Democrat once in high school. Oklahoma’s David Boren believed in lowering taxes and reducing government intervention in business and individuals’ lives. He was once praised by conservative stalwart Barry Goldwater as someone who should be President of the United States. But he retired before I had the opportunity to vote for him. The best I could do was support his campaign from high school. That was 1990. Democrats were different then.

Today’s Democratic Party is a dumpster fire. It’s a phrase that’s often used, perhaps too often, but I personally use it only when referring to the most egregious examples of chaos and dysfunction. The Democratic Party of 2019 and 2020 qualifies.  It’s not just their lack of unity or the disestablishment of clear leadership. That will come once they nominate a presidential candidate. But there are only a few sane candidates in the mix, and none of them are actually in the mix based on polls. All of the frontrunners and anyone within striking distance is worse than any candidate the Democrats have put forth in modern history. Yes, that includes Joe Biden, who is not the “common sense” Democrat many seem to believe he is. He’s just as unhinged, much more malleable, and clearly more clueless than any of the others. And that’s saying a lot.

When Barack Obama was elected President, a lot of Republicans thought it was the end of the world. I saw him as a risk to the cultural stability of the nation, and I was right. I saw Obamacare as a stepping stone to single-payer because it was bound to fail miserably, and I was right. What I didn’t see was how he would leave the progressive wing of the party feeling unfulfilled. He didn’t meet the promises they imposed on him of transforming America towards their version of “justice.” He made strides. That much is clear. But he wasn’t the existential threat to American society that they wanted so desperately.

In other words, I saw President Obama as someone who would damage the country, but not beyond mitigation. We’re seeing this to be true as President Trump reverses policies and fixes many of the challenges President Obama imposed on this nation. I didn’t buy into the slogan that he would “Make America Great Again” during the election, but I was wrong. I expected him to be above average, staving off the judicial tyranny Hillary Clinton would have brought upon us. But he has far exceeded my expectations. He really is doing many of the things this country needs. When I’m right, I’ll say it. When I’m wrong, I’ll admit it.

There have been mistakes. Arguably the biggest was allowing his advisers to keep him from pressing for the wall and shutting down the government if necessary long before the 2018 election. They said they’d get it done afterwards. Big mistake. The ensuing battles following the mini-blue-wave of the midterm elections that lost the House for the GOP were damaging to the President and counteracted progress made at the border. In effect, the lack of GOP action reversed progress and opened up the floodgates of illegal immigration.

President Trump’s second term is necessary, but there is a big difference between a second term with GOP control of the House and Senate and a second term fighting Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, or both. It’s not a slight difference. It’s not a big difference. It’s a gigantic difference. If Democrats retain control of the House, gain control of the Senate, or both, President Trump’s 2nd term will be legislative stalemate and constant battles with the judiciary over his attempts to do something by executive order. If the GOP can retain control of the Senate and take back control of the House, his second term can be monumental.

But it’s more than just promoting the Trump agenda. 2020 needs to be a referendum against the Democratic Party for bowing to their radical progressive wing. Nancy Pelosi may be Speaker of the House, but “The Squad” has increasingly been given attention to speak on behalf of the House. And Democratic leadership doesn’t see it. They sit in their committee meetings or caucus gatherings and think “The Squad” is a minor thorn in their side. But in real America outside of the beltway, Democrats are becoming disciples of the Green New Deal. They’re becoming vocal proponents of Medicare-for-All. They’re protesting ICE and calling for open borders. They’re joining Antifa in calls for socialism.

2020 must be a purge of the radicals in DC who are bent on destroying America. The Democratic Party must suffer cataclysmic losses at the ballot box, not just for President but for as many elected offices as possible.
