There certainly are a whole lot of “-isms” being thrown around in the world’s political dialogue these days.

Fascism, socialism, racism, patriotism, nationalism…the list goes on.  The idea behind the fervent marking of our political enemies with these “isms” is simple:  They seem impenetrable and immovable.  They sound like set-in-stone character traits that can’t be washed away with meaningful dialogue or a well-timed epiphany.

This absolutist view of politics is causing a great amount of tension the world over, with heads of state arguing with one another via the media over whose “-isms” are more appropriate.

One of the most egregious schools of thought in this world of classification is globalism, or the idea that sovereignty and freedom should be tempered by the will of the world at large.

Worse still – one of Europe’s most powerful leaders is touting the idea fervently, still, to this day.

ANGELA Merkel has suggested countries should be willing to give up control over their own affairs and let organisations such as the European Union have more power in a veiled swipe at Brexit, as the German Chancellor threatens to derail Britain’s exit from the bloc.

She told the event, titled ‘Parliamentarianism Between Globalisation and National Sovereignty’: “In this day nation states must today – should today, I say – be ready to give up sovereignty.

Merkel’s comments come just weeks after a brief war of words erupted between French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump over the ideas of patriotism and nationalism, with the two feuding both via Twitter and in-person.

Gaffe Master Biden Strikes Again! Has No Clue What Decade MLK Was Assassinated (WATCH)

Here’s a guy you can trust with the nuclear codes…

Biden’s people reportedly wanted to limit his exposure so he couldn’t make any more gaffes. They forgot they whenever Biden speaks, no matter how often or how little he’s liable to say something incredible goofy. For example, on Tuesday… From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden added some more significant gaffes to the rapidly growing list on the campaign trail Tuesday. While speaking to a group of supporters, the Democratic frontrunner demonstrated that he apparently does not know when civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, and then proceeded to question the role that women have had in political activism. Biden, who made the remarks during a campaign event in Urbandale, Iowa, claimed that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were “assassinated in the ’70s.” Biden then said “none of you women would know this,” as he appeared to be talking about political activism in the 1960s. LOOK: Not only does Joe Biden falsely say that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were “assassinated in the ‘70s, late 70” when both men were assassinated in 1968, he says “none of you women would know” about activism in the 1960s. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1163972607714242560?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163972607714242560&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F50863%2Fwatch-biden-doesnt-know-what-decade-mlk-was-ryan-saavedra D’oh! If the guy loved his country he would do the right thing and bow out of the 2020 presidential race. But there’s a pretty decent chance Joe will see it through. While speaking in Iowa on Friday, Joe erred bigly. WATCH: Biden has no clue whatsoever that Thomas Jefferson was a United States President. Biden names our country’s THIRD PRESIDENT Thomas Jefferson, as his favorite “non presidential” political figure🥴 Says he’s the guy who wrote (but didn’t live by) that “incredible document” https://twitter.com/RightHookUSA/status/1159855774950182913?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1159855774950182913&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F428678-biden-names-his-favorite-non-president-political-figures-thomas-jefferson-and-jfk%2F D’oh! Biden is asked to name his favorite historical figure who was not a president. He names Jefferson and…

THERE IT IS! Democrat National Committee Chair Set to Fundraise In Mexico City [Details]

They just don’t get it.

Democrats are clearly at odds with middle America but they don’t care. And they don’t have to care because the mainstream lets them slide. Check out what the head of the DNC will be doing next month… From MSN: Perez will participate in three events in the Mexican capital on Sept. 28, according to invitations obtained by Bloomberg News. The events range from happy hour drinks with a $25 minimum student entry to a dinner where tickets range from $1,000 to $15,000. The registration form on the DNC website require that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers. It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns. Evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election aimed at benefiting Donald Trump has been a persistent drag on his presidency. Spend, spend, spend. It’s all Democrats know how to do, despite getting to little to nothing in return on their investments. If this isn’t a clear indicator that a Democrat should never be president again, then what is? From Townhall: Bloomberg reports that the Democratic National Committee’s financial woes continue as Chairman Tom Perez and his colleagues continue to spend more than they take in. In fact, the DNC has already added $3 million in new debt in just the past four months. The Republican National Committee, however, is raking in boatloads of cash ahead of the 2020 election which will surely give President Donald J. Trump a leg up on whomever he ends up running against. In 2019 already, the “DNC had collected contributions of more than $24.4 million but had spent $28.4 million, according to the latest disclosures. It had $7.6 million cash on hand, $1 million less than in January. It posted $6.2 million in debt, including bank loans and…
