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.

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

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.

American Missionaries, Including Children, Kidnapped in Haiti

The FBI has now gotten involved as well.

Published

on

There is once again trouble in the unsettled streets of Haiti, and this time there are American lives at stake.

As the tiny island nation continues to suffer from unrest and an unhealthy escalation of gang-related violence, a number of American missionaries from Ohio have been kidnapped.

A group of 17 U.S. missionaries including children was kidnapped by a gang in Haiti on Saturday, according to a voice message sent to various religious missions by an organization with direct knowledge of the incident.

The missionaries were on their way home from building an orphanage, according to a message from Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries.

“This is a special prayer alert,” the one-minute message said. “Pray that the gang members would come to repentance.”

The message says the mission’s field director is working with the U.S. Embassy, and that the field director’s family and one other unidentified man stayed at the ministry’s base while everyone else visited the orphanage.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the FBI had gotten involved, and other entities within the federal government were doing all they could to help.

The State Department said Sunday its officials have been in “regular contact” with Haitian authorities “and will continue to work with them and interagency partners” to recover the group, a spokesperson told ABC News. The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is leading coordination with local authorities and providing assistance to the families, Psaki added.

The Haitian government suspects the gang known as 400 Mawozo to be responsible for the abductions, according to a source at the Haitian presidential office.

Haiti’s gang violence has now cemented the nation as the kidnapping capital of the world, with over 600 such crimes having occurred there in 2021 alone.

Southwest Airlines Hit by Major Employee Protest Over Vaccine Mandate

And just one week after a mysterious mass cancelation of flights.

Published

on

Just a week ago, Southwest Airlines was in the midst of a massive and troublesome cancelation of flights, with some estimates suggesting that nearly one third of the company’s entire fleet was grounded.

Southwest was quick in trying to get out ahead of the controversy, blaming weather and air traffic control issues for the massive trouble, but astute researchers were quick to point out that ATC hadn’t suggested anything of the sort on their end, and that the percentage of all canceled flights that belonged to Southwest was indicative of a problem within the airline itself.

Many began to suggest that the airline was suffering from the fallout of their coming vaccine mandate, and new evidence this week seems to refute the company’s claim to the contrary.

Current and former Southwest Airlines workers gathered to protest recent COVID-19 vaccination mandates on Monday, Oct. 18.

They gathered to celebrate “medical freedom” at the airline’s headquarters in Dallas.

Chopper 11 flew over the group of hundreds of people holding signs that said, “Terminate the mandate,” “freedom not force” and “no jabs for jobs,”

Southwest set its deadline the first week of October under a federal vaccination mandate for employees of companies holding contracts with the U.S. government. But workers can seek medical or religious exemptions. Workers have until late November to comply with the vaccine mandate.

Employers who have embraced vaccine mandates have suffered greatly in recent weeks, as Americans continue to exercise their right to bodily sovereignty in the face of growing pressure to receive the jab.
