Wow.

You know the old saying about even a broken clock being right twice a day?

Hillary Clinton has given us reason to trot out that old maxim again.

She’s too much of a capitalist. (I kid you not – don’t laugh!)

Alan Murray: You may be the only presidential candidate since World War II that actually had to stand up and say, ‘I am a capitalist.’ And you did. Did it hurt you?

Hillary Clinton: Probably. I mean, you know, it’s hard to know but if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41% of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists and I’m asked if you’re a capitalist and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,’ that probably gets lost in the, ‘Oh, my God, she’s a capitalist!’

Here’s the thing, and don’t laugh at me when I say this, she’s probably right.

While Hillary Clinton may not be the face of capitalism, she’s too far to the right on economic policy for the modern Democrat Party.

Now, this doesn’t actually mean she’s a good capitalist. In fact, she’s really hardly a capitalist at all. She’s much more of a corporatist (one acquainted with cronyism), she’s cozy with Wall Street and prefers the reins of economic policy be controlled by a few politicians and their corporate enablers. Beyond that, the reality is she’s also closer to socialist than she is capitalist. She prefers higher taxes, more government control of the factors of production, and the socialization of huge segments of the market (like healthcare for example).

All of that being said, she still wasn’t far enough to the Left for the 2016 Democrat electorate. The far-left wing of the party is the base and while they may be in the minority, they are still the energy that drives the Democrats success. When she defeated their socialist messiah, Bernie Sanders, it knocked all of the wind out of their sails and gave Donald Trump a real path to the White House.

So, yes, in a way, Hillary Clinton was right. She wasn’t socialist enough for her base voters.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
