Waleed Shahid is a Democrat strategist.

He appeared on MSNBC to espouse a twisted version of democracy the left would absolutely love.

The thing is, Shahid is wildly inaccurate.

From Free Beacon:

MSNBC panelists struggled Thursday to explain the concept of democracy while considering the rise of socialist ideas in the United States.

The discussion on MSNBC Live, hosted by Katy Tur, led off with a discussion about the latest college admissions scandal. The Department of Justice charged dozens of wealthy parents this week with fraudulently securing college admission for their children.

Shahid: “Democracy should mean taking power and wealth from those who hoard it, and making sure it belongs to everyone.

WATCH:

MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.

The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.

ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”

This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.

JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.

WATCH:

Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.

Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.

One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.

It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.

According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.

MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”

2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s father is Jamaican and her mother is Indian.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews basically wants to know if she’s black enough.

No joke.

Matthews: “Is she seen as African American? Is she seen as African American?

WATCH:

Imagine if a Republican commentator said this.

PANDEMONIUM.

Save conservative media!

Sanders Takes Big Double-Digit Lead In Brand New National Poll, While Biden Falls Apart And Bloomberg Rises

Published

on

Bernie Sanders is enjoying a massive boost in the polls thanks to a solid showing at the Iowa caucuses and his victory in New Hampshire, but what’s good news for the Vermont senator is not so hot for original favored candidate former Vice President Joe Biden who continues to crumble. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, however, is also enjoying a major surge in the polls. This just goes to show you that politics are totally unpredictable, as everyone sort of assumed the nominee would, without a doubt, be Joe Biden. The landscape continues to shift. Here’s more from Fox News: Sanders garnered 32 percent support in the ABC News/Washington Post poll, followed by Biden at 17 percent and Bloomberg at 14 percent. Sanders has been boosted by a win in the Vermont primary and at least a top-two finish in the yet-to-be-called Iowa caucuses, while Biden is still counting on his South Carolina firewall to hold after middling finishes in both states. The trio is trailed by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 11 percent, the only other candidate reaching double-digits in the poll. https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1230089763090259969 The ABC News/Washington Post poll follows another national poll released Tuesday by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist which had Bloomberg in second place behind Sanders and Biden in third. That poll put Bloomberg over the top of the Democratic National Committee’s threshold to participate in Wednesday’s debate in Las Vegas ahead of the Nevada caucuses. Bloomberg, whose 14 percent total in Wednesday’s poll is up from 8 percent in January, has seemed to poach moderate Democrats from Biden’s camp with his huge advertising budget, spending upwards of $400 million so far. He is not competing in any of the first four primary states — campaigning instead in delegate-rich Super Tuesday states while the other candidates toiled away…

Bloomberg News Ex-Reporter’s Wife Claims Bloomberg’s Lawyers Threatened Family Over China Reporting

Published

More and more evidence comes out about Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg every day that proves this man might not be a very good fit for the highest office in the land. There have been numerous racist and sexist comments that have come out about Bloomberg, not to mention his statements about how elderly cancer patients should be denied treatment and left to die so those resources go to younger patients. Apparently, according to the wife of a former Bloomberg News reporter, Michael Bloomberg threatened to “ruin” her family financially if she ever spoke out about how the publication killed a story that was critical of Chinese leadership in the Communist Party. Here’s more from Fox News: Leta Hong Fincher, whose husband, Michael Forsythe, now writes for the New York Times, wrote that the former New York City mayor threatened to “devastate” her family if she jeopardized his financial ties to China. “My story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing,” Fincher began an editorial for The Intercept. Fincher first explained that her husband wrote a Bloomberg News article connecting the dots between Chinese President Xi Jinping’s family’s vast and sudden accumulation of wealth and him assuming office. Immediately, her husband began to receive death threats by a woman who told him she represented a relative of Xi. The woman specifically conveyed threats to Forsythe’s entire family, consisting of his wife, a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old at the time. Bloomberg News urged the family not to say anything. Back in October of 2012, Fincher posted a tweet about the death threats she got after the story on Xi went live. A few hours later, a manager for Bloomberg phoned her husband said, “Get your wife to delete her tweets.” Fincher refused…
