Warren doubles up on Sanders among very liberal Democrats

There has long been talk that Senator Elizabeth Warren is the better version of Senator Bernie Sanders in the eyes of radical progressives. Sanders may always be the ideological figurehead of their socialist movement, but Warren’s ideas seem fresh compared to Sanders’s repetitive talking points.

This premise seems to be playing out in the latest Quinnipiac poll as Warren has grabbed support from 40% of those who claim to be “very liberal” compared to 20% for Sanders. Frontrunner Joe Biden is close to matching Sanders, coming in at 19% among the far left while scoring 28% among “somewhat liberal” Democrats and 43% among “moderates.”

Warren has jumped up to second with a commanding seven-point lead over third-place Sanders. Behind them are Senator Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Here are the totals:

  • 32% – Biden
  • 21% – Warren
  • 14% – Sanders
  • 7% – Harris
  • 5% – Buttigieg

No other Democratic candidate got above 2%.

Following the two debates, in which Warren benefited from both, Sanders and Harris have seen their numbers go up, then down. Both are trying to claim the progressive mantle that Sanders established in the 2016 Democratic primaries, but Warren is matching both of them combined in recent polling. She seems to be the odds-on favorite to get the progressive vote, which means she’s likely the favorite to get the nomination itself unless Biden and the DNC squeeze more moderate voters to the polls than expected.

This is the current path of the Democratic Party, one that embraces the radical policy proposals of people like Warren. It doesn’t matter how much she plans on taxing the rich to oblivion. The left likes what they’re hearing even if it means America’s demise.

Sanders heading to Warren’s native state for Comanche event

Sanders heading to Warrens native state for Comanche event

LAWTON, Okla. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is focusing on reliably Republican Oklahoma with an appearance before the largest annual gathering of the Comanche Nation in the state where rival Elizabeth Warren was born.

Sanders’ visit may remind some of a sensitive subject for Warren, still criticized after her October release of a DNA test meant to bolster her claim to Native American heritage. That was supposed to rebut President Donald Trump’s mocking of the Massachusetts senator as “Pocahontas,” but only intensified it.

Last month, Warren offered a public apology to Native Americans, trying to show that the issue won’t be a political drag in her White House campaign.

The Comanches, who are holding their 28th annual Nation Fair Powwow, are a Plains Indian tribe of about 17,000 enrolled members, with headquarters just north of Lawton, in southwest Oklahoma. Powwows are important social events for many tribes, and typically feature traditional dance, songs, food, regalia and other customs.

Sanders, a Vermont senator, won Oklahoma’s 2016 Democratic primary over Hillary Clinton. The state votes next year as part of the earlier and expanded “Super Tuesday,” which comes on March 3 and includes neighboring Texas.

University of Oklahoma political science professor Keith Gaddie said Sanders’ powwow visit was unusual because the tribe, which well-known, is not a particularly large Native American nation.

“There’s no reason, in order to win the state, that you’d have to go down to that event,” Gaddie said.

Warren has made her family’s down-home, financial struggles after her father had a heart attack and couldn’t work — forcing her mother to get a minimum wage job — a central theme of her campaign. Sanders and Warren are friends who agree on many policy issues, including the “Medicare for All” universal health insurance plan.

Both also have refused to attack one another, ducking questions about whether they eventually will have to compete for the Democratic Party’s most liberal wing. But a Des Moines Register-CNN-Mediacom poll released Saturday showed Warren outpacing Sanders in Iowa, which launches the 2020 Democratic nominating contest on Feb. 3, and running about even with former Vice President Joe Biden, who had been the crowded field’s front runner.

Sanders planned a rally at the University of Oklahoma before speaking at the powwow.

AOC calls out her own party’s ‘refusal’ to impeach Trump

AOC calls out her own partys refusal to impeach Trump

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is rallying her base against the Democratic Party Establishment. Her Justice Democrats puppetmasters want an all-out war against the people they consider to be “moderates” despite that group seemingly encompassing anyone who isn’t a far-left radical progressive. Their targets are people who would be considered progressives on any scale that didn’t get tilted by the rising radical left.

Their opening strike against the Democratic Establishment comes in the form of having AOC go after the party for not impeaching President Trump. They won’t say what the President did that’s worthy of impeachment outside of general complaints about obstruction or abuse of power, but those are just details to be ignored by Ocasio-Cortez and the Justice Democrats. They aren’t interested in facts. They only care about the feelings associated with a Trump impeachment.

As our EIC noted, conservatives should hope AOC gets her way:

Fox & Friends tackled the issue today, noting how the brewing war between the left and the far left is threatening to make the Democratic Party cannibalize itself. Meanwhile, the President is safely planted in the Oval Office with no worries of real impeachment.

Candace Owens: ‘Leftists and Democrats don’t want to see these issues fixed in black America’

Candace Owens Leftists and Democrats dont want to see these issues fixed in black America

Speaking before Congress today, conservative activist Candace Owens detailed some of the real problems black citizens are facing in America today. She considers “white nationalism” to be a problem that wouldn’t make her top-100 list of actual issues harming African-Americans and their communities.

What she DOES consider to be huge problems include the deterioration of the family as our welfare system encourages women to remain single mothers, knowing their income from the government would be cut if they were to marry the father of their children. Gun violence is a real problem, but it’s a problem that comes back to gun control areas such as Chicago in which so many black Americans are killed by gun-wielding criminals while law abiding citizens are not allowed to protect themselves.

She looks to the education system that keeps African-American youths from receiving their proper education. And she turned to the policies of Democrats who seem to view African-Americans as a base of voters who must be exploited by indoctrinating them into the notion they’re being persecuted by white nationalists in the GOP.

Owens noted that “leftists and Democrats don’t want to see these issues fixed in black America because then they can’t stomp on those issues.”

It’s clear that Democrats spread lies intent on making minorities believe they’re the party that will help them when invariably their policies are the ones that actually oppress the masses. Marxism’s roots in racism are flourishing in leftist America.
