Democrats Just Did the Unthinkable. They Nominated a Real Socialist for Gov. in Florida.

Published

on

Democrats stole the show last night in Florida with their choice of candidate for the gubernatorial election, choosing Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum who is an avowed socialist with the Bernie Sanders seal of approval.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why Donald Trump won the presidency.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who won Bernie Sanders’ coveted seal of approval, triumphed over Gwen Graham, the daughter of a senator and former Florida governor (and a centrist Democrat), New York Magazine reports. Graham was expected to win handily, and then expected to win the gubernatorial race over Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis.

Now, the outcome of November’s election isn’t as obvious to Florida Democrats.

Will the Democrats Allow Bernie to get Democrat Nomination?

The progressive left has hailed Gillum as a “hero”: he’s staunchly and unabashedly in favor of enacting single-payer health care, raising the minimum wage to more than $15 per hour, hiking Florida’s corporate income tax, abolishing ICE (the immigration and customs enforcement branch of the Department of Justice), and impeaching President Donald Trump.

In fact, Gillum considers himself a socialist, as do Democratic mega-donors like impeachment hawk and radical environmentalist Tom Steyer and global paragon of leftism George Soros (both donated to Gillum’s campaign).

Gillum is only 39, and up until Tuesday night was running fourth among potential Democratic contenders in most polls. He quite literally came out of nowhere to snag the Democratic nomination.

There’s little doubt that the hard left shift of the Democratic Party is now complete, what with several major socialist candidates popping out of the woodwork over the last several years.

Truth be told, these folks were always there, however, they hung in the shadows. Now they are emboldened by the cultural shift progressives have managed to usher in, allowing them to come out in the open with their horrific, liberty limiting ideas and policies.

It’s a sad day in America when a socialist is getting this much positive attention.

Bernie Sanders Proposes Universal Child Care That Costs $1.5 Trillion To Be Financed By ‘Tax On Extreme Wealth’

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination take on President Trump this year for the White House, has just unveiled a new plan to guarantee child care through age three, as well as universal free prekindergarten education, and the cost for this program is absolutely mind blowing. The plan would cost — get ready for this — a whopping $1.5 trillion, yes “trillion,” and would be funded by a tax on the “extreme wealth” of the country, whatever that means. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The Democratic presidential candidate said that the proposal would “substantially reduce the massive level of wealth inequality in America, create new and good jobs, enable parents to more easily balance the demands of work and home, and give our children the best chance at leading healthy, happy lives.” The Vermont senator would pay for the proposal through his wealth tax on those with over $32 million in net worth. His campaign has said that this tax would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over 10 years. Sanders’s campaign says the proposal will improve job flexibility for parents, improve childhood development, and increase wages and training for child care workers. Other top Democratic candidates, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, have also put forward their own child care plans, but Sanders’s is the broadest and most expensive. If you were on the fence about whether or not Bernie Sanders was a legitimate socialist, this massive big government program and subsequent tax designed to redistribute wealth should remove all doubt. A program of this magnitude would decimate our economy, and this isn’t even including all the other insane things that Sanders wants to implement. His policies would utterly destroy our country, which is why we…

President Trump announced that India has reached a $3 billion defense deal with the United States, which includes the country purchasing several military-grade helicopters. Trump delivered a speech on Monday alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Sardar Patel Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the country, capable of housing more than 100,000 people. During his talk, Trump confirmed that the U.S. had approved the purchase of several military helicopters from America as part of the larger defense deal between the two countries. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most-feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made — airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” the president said. He continued, “I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.” Trump, who held a rally with Modi in Texas in September, described the friendship between the two nations as being strong. He called Modi a “great friend” and vowed that the U.S. and India would remain allies. https://twitter.com/narendramodi/status/1231918893964251136 Both countries were due to talk about trade during the state visit, however the president stated that no deal has been finalized at this time. He spoke with reporters saying that he felt “no rush” to complete negotiations, but added that “We are doing well with India, we are making deals.” Trump’s speech in India was accepted with warm applause from the packed out stadium. He went on to thank the crowd gathered to hear him speak for the “spectacular welcome,” saying he would never forget the “remarkable hospitality” of the Indian…
