New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not been elected into any political office yet and some Democrat lawmakers are already voicing concerns over her divisive rhetoric.
Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, rose to fame after her shocking defeat over Rep. Joseph Crowley in the primary. Crowley, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus and the fourth ranking Democrat, was considered a rising-star within the party and was expected to soar to victory.
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the upset winner of the Democratic primary in NY-14, called Israel “occupiers” in an interview, and then stated she didn’t have the credentials to talk geopolitics.
The angry demonstrators at the Supreme Court didn’t know, and didn’t much care, who Trump’s nominee was. They knew they were against him, as they are against everything Trump wants to do. Perhaps they also know they are losing most of the political fights, and are on the verge of following their McGovernite predecessors into the trash bin of American political history.
If I had to predict near-term American politics, I’d forecast an anti-leftist electoral rout this fall, with a nasty period of infighting and restructuring of the Democrat Party to follow.
The Democrat Party is a shell of its former self. Once the Democrat Party spoke for the common man and the experiences that that common man endured in the accomplishment of the dreams they had. The Democratic Party of today is one of the tyranny of thought and an adamant concern for conformity. No longer adhering to the tenets of the founding documents that have been the foundation of this country for more than 200 years, they have fully embraced the principles of progressive socialism. The leaders of this progressive socialist movement have decided that the United States is required to head full bore to the collectivism of the New World Order.
Sanders has never toed the progressive line on matters of migration and now his fans are starting to notice.
Previously a fringe issue associated with the far left, the movement to shutter ICE is now a rallying cry for the Democratic Party heading into the midterm elections. Not only has it picked up steam with candidates up and down the ballot, it’s also garnered the backing of potential 2020 Democratic presidential contenders like Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Senator Elizabeth Warren.
All of this has put Sanders, the left’s torchbearer who nearly toppled the ill-fated Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, in a precarious position. Sanders, long wary of open immigration on economic grounds, now finds himself increasingly at odds with a left clamoring for open borders.
I was a little surprised he got as far as he did given early on in the last election cycle he expressed his views on immigration to lefty outlet Vox and sounded more Trump than Trump.
A group of conservative African-American leaders informed House Speaker Paul Ryan Thursday morning on Capitol Hill that they wanted him to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her controversial speech last month encouraging supporters to harass Trump officials.
Maxine “is the unchallenged face of the Democratic Party,” said Johms Gool of the Victory Christian Center, in Charlotte, NC. “She represents half of the U.S.”
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has changed her biography on her campaign website after she was caught making misleading statements about her past.
Ocasio-Cortez’s biography originally stated: “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”
Victor Davis Hanson, writing in American Greatness, surveys how history’s bad ideas inspire the “progressives.” He focuses on the plans for court packing, the resegregation of students in universities, the growing movements to censor speech, restaurants’ decision to refuse service to those whose views they disagree with and local governments’ nullification of laws (sanctuary cities).
The poll found that national pride sharply fell most among Democrats than any other political group.
A far-left group behind rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is rife with Marxists and other far-left radicals.
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which includes Ocasio-Cortez, is creeping its way into the mainstream of American politics.
The Democrat [Socialist/Communist] Party is finally being honest — they admit they are a Socialist Party. Socialists and Communists are welcomed to join and run as Democrats and have been doing exactly that. As the chairman Tom Perez told leftist radio host Bill Press, the Communist and congresswoman-elect from NY 14 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is the “future of the party“.
White millennials are equally divided between supporting Republicans and Democrats in this year’s critical midterm elections, as a campaign urging people to “Walk Away” from the Democratic Party has picked up steam online.
Young people do not like President Donald Trump, but whites between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are equally likely to vote for a Republican as for a Democrat in the elections for Congress this November. A full 39 percent said that “if the election for U.S. Congress were held today,” they would vote for the Republican in the district where they live. Another 39 percent said they would vote for the Democrat.
There’s something happening here, for the Democrats the end is near.
My first inkling that Donald Trump might actually become President came about mid-evening on election night, 2016, when I switched to MSNBC to look at that infallible barometer of Republican success at the ballot box, the expressions of the “journalists” reporting the returns. The first face I saw was that of Chuck Todd, who was frowning at a map of Wisconsin and maundering about Milwaukee. He was worried about low turnout in precincts where the African-American vote was crucial to Hillary Clinton’s success in the Badger State. Having long been skeptical of Trump’s chances, I was surprised. Todd was trembling.
His fear was well-founded.
In the midst of the remarkable success of President Trump on so many fronts, the Democratic Party leadership is grasping at a new slogan: The call to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
A 28-year-old new Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated longtime congressional incumbent Joe Crowley in the recent New York primary, has led the call to abolish ICE. She is now being parroted by a number of other Democrats.
