It’s On! The Democrat Party Divided Against Itself

Whoa.

Published

on

The Democrat Party has been lurching left for years now, but since the end of the Clinton era, they’ve been shifting left at speeds which defy the laws of physics. Aided by eight years of an extreme leftist in the White House, the Democratic Party has become dominated by radical progressives and socialists. The fight to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice is causing some of the more moderate Democrats to fight back against their party cohorts to save their political careers.

When socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated a mainstream leadership Democrat, the entire Democrat world (except for others in establishment leadership) cheered. The media, the Democrat’s base, the punditry it was as if the victory of a socialist in a primary had energized them all somehow. But they missed the real story, there was more than one socialist winner.

Because of the rumored blue wave, one would think that the Democrats would be circling the wagons and helping to defend every Senate, and house seat they could… but one would be wrong.

Trending: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

Instead, a war has been declared between the typical left-of-center Democrats and the extreme leftists who now dominate the Democratic party.

Latest: IT’S WAR! The Democratic Party Is Now A House Divided Against Itself

Earlier this week Senator Chris Coons led a meeting of Democratic “centrists.”  At the conference, Coons delivered a stunning rebuke of the extremists who dominate the party.

A group of moderate Democratic lawmakers sounded the alarm Thursday over the party’s shift to the left, saying the embrace of ultra-liberal policies could endanger their efforts to capture Congress in the November midterm elections and the White House in 2020.

“The next two years is just a race to offer increasingly unrealistic proposals, to rally just those who are already with us,” Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, told a gathering of like-minded centrists at a strategy session in Washington. But with a far-left agenda, Coons warned, “it’ll be difficult for us to make a credible case that we should be allowed to govern again and easier and easier to mock and marginalize us.”

These extreme leftist Democrats seem to prefer the idea of losing this election and clearing out as many moderate Democrats from the party as possible. Any break with the far left is considered a treacherous act.

 

Louis Farrakhan’s friend Keith Ellison (D-MN) who is the Deputy Chairman of the party,, argues that EVERY Democrat should be forced to defend/endorse single-payer healthcare.

In today’s Democrat Party one has to support socialist healthcare. Otherwise, you’re not really a Democrat. Which would mean that to be a Democrat today, Keith Ellison believes you’d also have to support a socialist agenda. Right?

Well…yes!

That threatened “blue wave” is being overtaken by a much darker blue wave.

Citing the NY Times Axios reports that Democratic Socialists of America, which endorsed Ocasio-Cortez in her win over powerful NY Democrat Joseph Crowley is a growing force within the party. Its membership has ballooned from 7,000 to 37,000 members since the 2016 election. And the DSA has a very leftist agenda such as Medicare for all and abolishing ICE.

Other far-left groups are joining in on the fun. That same Axios piece explains the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), a leading far-left progressive group, has launched a campaign to try and defeat “centrist” Democrats.  Our Revolution, which bills itself as the next step for Bernie Sanders’ movement endorsed 49 candidates across the country who won their primaries in federal, state and local elections.

Nothing is crystallizing the battle between moderate and left-wing extremist Democrats like the fight to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. The Supreme Court is a different battle because it isolates the more moderate Democrats in the Senate.

Many of these moderates are running for re-election in red states where voters support President Trump. However, the extreme left doesn’t care about those Senate seats or what those Senator’s constituents may want—Kavanaugh must be defeated.

Feeling the pressure from the extremists who control the party Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)  wants every Red State Democrat to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court… or else! He is reportedly” putting the screws on his caucus members, warning them that they may not get help in tight Senate races if they abandon the party to confirm a Trump” Supreme Court pick.

Many of those Red State Dems are publicly and some even impolitely telling Schumer to go away:

  • Joe Donnelly of Indiana: “My decision won’t have anything to do with Chuck Schumer.”
  • Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota: “I’m going to vote the way I’m going to vote regardless of what the leader says.”
  • Claire McCaskill of Missouri: “He doesn’t come to me and say: ‘You’ve got to vote with us on this.’ He knows I’ll tell him to take a flyin’ leap.”
  • Joe Manchin of West Virginia: “I’ll be 71 years old in August, you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what.”

Asked about red state Democrats losing elections because of their votes against the nominee, Minority Whip Dick Durbin flatly suggested they should all take a bullet for the cause,  “They understand it’s an historic decision.  It’s about more than the next election.”

And now, an extreme Leftist Democrat Super-PAC called Demand Justice has announced that they’ll be pouring $5 Million into a campaign to “stop” Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed and they’ll be using it against…those Red State Democrats.

A progressive group working to sink President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee is launching its first round of advertising Friday in three key states to pressure Democratic senators to vote against Brett Kavanaugh.

Demand Justice is spending a portion of its $5 million budget on the ads aimed at Sens. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., Joe Manchin, D-W.V., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., and urging them to oppose Kavanaugh by warning that the nominee could rule to eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions.

The ads, obtained by NBC News, are complimentary of the Democratic senators’ efforts to preserve the Affordable Care Act but caution that those actions could be nullified by the next high court justice.

Getting a Democrat organization to add another $5 Million would usually be considered a huge plus, but in this case, it is being used to split the party.

If every Democrat votes against Judge Kavanaugh, it won’t matter as long as every Republican votes to confirm him. And right now that is the likely scenario. So the result is that the extremists are forcing a party split in a battle the party cannot win. But stopping Judge Kavanaugh from becoming Justice Kavanaugh isn’t their real agenda. They want to kill their party’s center.

Today Democrat Party leaders, like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, no longer care about America or their constituents in general, they only care about pleasing their rabid, extremist leftwing base. And that, in the end, will hurt them in upcoming elections and will hurt the country.

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics. President Trump declaration of a national emergency to build a border barrier is necessary according to Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.

The more the Democrats fights securing the border, the larger the price they will pay in 2020.

Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

MAGA MADNESS: Loony Lib Pulls Gun on Trump Fan Over Hat

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

MAGA

What started out as a social media joke about the lunacy of the liberal left has now turned into a bonafide phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which we are too intrinsically intwined to have any true perspective as if yet.

Try to remember the shock and horror that you felt when you first saw the bloody, decapitated head of the President at the end of Kathy Griffin’s outstretched arm.  The steely, cold stare that she gave the camera was purely chilling.  Her eyes belied no emotion at the heinous and callous effigy in her hands, that she herself chose to create.  She had the uncaring and unflinching look of a cold-blooded predator.

It was unnerving to witness.  The photo-realistic, bloody head was enough to form a brick somewhere deep in my guts, but seeing Kathy Griffin’s absolute void of emotion struck me in ways that no political imagery had before.

Now, remember that this was all nearly two years ago now.  Today, in 2019, were we to see something like this, it wouldn’t have nearly the effect.  We’d scoff, and scold, but in the end we would chalk it up to “liberals being liberals”.

It is this passage of time, and the erosion of dignity within the democratic party, that has led to madness such as this:

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, say James Phillips was arrested after witnesses said he pulled a gun inside a Sam’s Club outlet because the victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

A police report notes that the suspect admitted to getting upset over the headwear and that he “flipped off” the MAGA hat wearer, according to WBKO-TV 13.

The victim, Terry Pierce, told police he had a right to wear the hat. “I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” the Sam’s Club customer said.

Pierce added that Phillips, “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.’”

Phillips claimed that he told Pierce to put the gun down so they could settle the argument like men, but Pierce ran out of the store, instead.

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

Sensibility is the only cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
