Ocasio-Cortez is Firing First Shots in New Democratic Civil War

This division into overzealous fractions of society, is horrendous of the health of the American psyche, and it’s showing in the democratic party’s 2019 Civil War.

There are plenty of anecdotes regarding the “taste of your own medicine”, so I’ll spare you fine folks my own rehashing of the redundant rhetoric.

Instead, we should examine the absolute insanity occurring within the democratic party as 2020 looms.

You see, the democrats have been using a “divide and conquer” method of politicking as of late, much like what they’ve accused Russia of doing during the 2016 election.  The irony is delicious, certainly, but there are dire possible consequences to be examined as well.

The left loves to divvy up their constituents into smaller and smaller groups in order to exploit our emotions for political gain.  They an galvanize a small, vocal group of Americans much more easily than a large one, and by targeting the loudest of these groups, their reach becomes exponential.

We all know of a vegan or Crossfit enthusiast who simply will not let a day pass without spreading the gospel of their lifestyle.  As an entrepreneur, these are the folks you want to court.  You want someone who lives and breathes their lifestyle so that, when you corporately co-op their identity, you will have them speaking your name at all times.

That’s why the left goes after the climate change crowds and the other outspoken fringes:  These are the loud voices.

But this division into overzealous fractions of society, is horrendous of the health of the American psyche, and it’s showing in the democratic party’s 2019 Civil War.

House Democrats exploded in recriminations Thursday over moderates bucking the party, with liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans “on a list” for a primary challenge.

In a closed-door session, a frustrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., lashed out at about two dozen moderates and pressured them to get on board. “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision,” Pelosi said, according to two people present but not authorized to discuss the remarks publicly.

The loudest of them all, however, went a step further.

But Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating that she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election.

Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said she told her colleagues that Democrats who side with Republicans “are putting themselves on a list.”

As the party implodes, will there even be a legitimate challenge to President Trump in 2020, or will the leftist infighting ignite the figurative dumpster fire the we all know the democratic base is capable of becoming?

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Published

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.

The Trump of Indonesia

Does all this sound familiar?

[The following was written by Flag & Cross contributor Steve Sherman.] Across the planet, the political establishment and their mainstream media supporters are being disrupted.  While populist revolts were bubbling beneath the surface for years, the election of Donald J. Trump supercharged and empowered opposition to the ruling elite and set in motion a worldwide reset of our politics.   The next bout in the international struggle against the establishment is playing out tomorrow in Indonesia.  Incumbent President Joko Widodo ran a pseudo Obama campaign of “change and hope” in 2014, riding the then-dominant political strategy to victory in the world’s third largest democracy. Widodo now faces a challenge to his failed regime from Trump-like challenger, Prabowo Subianto.  There’s lots to challenge.   The economy has been stagnant.  Corruption is rife.  And Widodo has morphed into the very thing he ran against in 2014 – a corrupt potentate interested only in enriching his cronies and maintaining his power. Worse, Widodo has introduced into the mix the People’s Republic of China.  Whereas his predecessors resisted the invasion of Chinese capital and personnel, Widodo has facilitated China gaining an historic stronghold in this archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands. While his detractors have yet to produce proof that Widodo has been personally compensated and compromised through infamous Chinese government payoffs, the invasion from the mainland has severely unsettled his political coalition. Further complicating matters for the incumbent is his inability to deal with religious intolerance in this largest Muslim nation.   While Widodo tries to use the specter of Islamic fundamentalism to his advantage, he is undercut by his own missteps and those of his followers.  The world continues to reel over the pernicious jailing in Widodo’s political base province of former Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, an ethnic Chinese and a Christian.  Purnama has been imprisoned only because he is a…
