The natural question is why, and the answer is twofold. First, the right-wing wants to Make America White Again, and the fake left Justice Democrats are always there for them. Second, black people have proven utterly invulnerable to the off-brand crazy socialism they’re spouting off about all the time. They voted in a bloc smarter than any other group in 2016, solidly for Hillary Clinton, both times. It’s very convenient for the extreme wings of our political spectrum (which needs some redefining, something we’ll be working on and looking at not a long time from now) to share that goal.
Back in 2015, when I heard the name of Bernie Sanders for the first time, my understanding of what the far left really was had not begun yet, and so I got to be unpleasantly startled many times by the sheer hatefulness they were capable of carrying inside them. One of their most notable figures, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, was made to resign when sexually perverse essays were discovered in his past. Bernie Bros like the one who left the printed words on the picture below was every bit as nasty in terms of racism and sexism and refusing to tolerate dissent, if not nastier, than the Donald Trump supporters and alt-right trolls of 4chan and Reddit fame. In 2016 we went through everything you can imagine with these people.
I honestly hadn’t expected it at all, especially not when considering how united everyone had seemed during the Obama days. It didn’t have to be this way, but that’s how it went in the end. Now it is 2019, however, and nothing surprises me anymore. Bernie Sanders is the center of it all- though we still do not wish him dead. Even after all he’s done, we still sent him our best wishes in the form of an article. But ultimately it all goes back to the fact that his supporters blamed black people for Bernie losing ( and badly).
The Justice Democrats rose out of the ashes of Bernie or Bust, and that they have run rampant in his name ever since. It is also a fact that the same ugly traits of racism and sexism have followed along with them likewise. So for them now to be going after many of the top black voices in the Congress ought to be a surprise to absolutely no one.
The Justice Democrats have targeted black voices in the past, most notably AM Joy Reid, who was the target of an extreme Twitter assault in 2017. Now black lawmakers are feeling highly realistic anxiety about the coming election season and who and who not might be under the sniper’s rifle next. Reps. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), and Anthony Brown (D-Md.). Brown said the closeted right-wing organization has been making calls in his district, actively trying to recruit a challenger to run against him. They say they’re not, but the word of a real Democrat is worth that of all the Justice Democrats on Earth, even if they were to be gathered into one place and tied together. My money’s on Brown to the very last nickel.
Strange indeed; yet when considered as a whole, a pattern becomes pretty clear. This pattern of the far left using the same techniques as the right and to further their goals will show up over and over again to a researcher of the subject.
Playing one group of persons against the other is how the people have been manipulated by whoever was running the show since the beginning of time, and it’s what they’re doing now. Hispanic Caucus member Henry Cuellar’s primary foe is a Latina (by the way, fake Native Elizabeth Warren helped with this; so much for her help with race relations in America), whereas Clay’s is a black woman.
This is a completely right-wing trick- as a matter of fact, the Republicans are getting ready to use it against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by running Scherie Murray against her. Murray is a black woman immigrant from Jamaica. How callous.
AOC’s coming to power eliminated one of the best guys we had in the House, Joe Crowley, whose professionalism and integrity are needed now more than ever. Since then she has managed to annoy just about everyone and is absolutely unpopular in her district. People who never would have thought of voting red in 2016 are thinking good and hard about it now. They are positively pondering.
From a Republican standpoint, it really is a coup. They are going to out-progressive the multi-cultural and goodhearted Democratic Party, in the heart of New York City, during the Trump era. You have to hand it to the guys who thought this up, even though we moderates have been screaming at everyone to watch for it. They did it, and they did it unto us. And now here we are, fighting for everything, wasting all our resources. If they really were Democrats, they would realize how hurtful their behavior is and desist. But they’re not. So they won’t.
Colonialism was the largest-scale and most brutal of the schemes cooked up by social planners before Auschwitz and the Gulag Archipelago and should be viewed as the true ancestor of socialism. So although a socialist like AOC has little ground for complaint, we who have been here fighting both extremes on a day-to-day basis and are being stalked by the intelligence services of other countries as a result have every right to bemoan what is all but a sure loss of a Democratic seat.
We are going to fight as hard as we can, for William Lacy Clay and Henry Cuellar and any other good Democrat in the Congress, all the more so if by their departure the United States will be reverting into the brutal thug racism of our past. We NEED black/person of color voices in our government, and we will not surrender them lightly. Millennial Democrats wish to express our full and complete solidarity with the Congressional Black Caucus. Now and forever.
As next year’s election season draws in ever closer and looms over Planet Earth like the Apocalypse, all the world is wondering what American voters will do next year. Will Donald Trump and his evil divisions and his foolhardy ways be thrown out on his ear, or will they be codified and set into stone in a new Dark Ages to take place until at least 2024? Only one thing is certain: 2020 will be the most critical election of our lifetimes, except for 2016.
After months of uncertainty, former vice-president Joe Biden decided to run. We soon endorsed Biden as the only sane choice, knowing in our hearts only that Trump must go and that a socialist must not replace him. Now everything depends on him. The blown gasket of Bernie Sanders gave second-place Elizabeth Warren a big boost and set the chessboard up for next year’s races. The game will be between the two of them. When it ends, and it comes time for Joe Biden to accept the nomination, it is our opinion that he should at least consider picking Warren as his running mate and making her the vice president.
The nature of politics requires shifting alliances at times, and it is in that context that I first began to think about the possible efficacy of running a Biden/Warren ticket. If executed correctly the play could end up repairing the gaplike rift that was torn in the Democratic Party by Bernie Sanders back in 2016. The long term health of the Party would be likely to improve, which is critical to America’s future.
In essence, it will depend on what Warren decides to do after she realizes that she is going to lose to Joe Biden beginning on Super Tuesday and heading into next summer. Will she link hands with Bernie as her chosen vice-president in a wrongheaded attempt to land herself in the Oval Office? Or will she do the right thing and throw her support behind Joe, the only one of us who has what it takes to beat Donald Trump, and offer to throw in as his chosen vice president?
It’s one of the biggest decisions a person could ever have to make, and we can’t say with any sort of certainty that Joe would even consider picking her. Many believe that he would not, but I’m not sure I agree. Joe Biden was the first person in politics Elizabeth Warren ever spoke to, as a friend of Dr. Phil’s, and his magnanimity in engaging her in a debate is how she became a recognized figure. If she has any decency at all, and I believe she does, she will harbor some gratitude towards him for creating her. For his part, Biden seems to like Warren and to have taken some interest in her career, and the race between the two of them has remained civil. I say it’s possible and more than possible. I say it’s a good idea. We should try putting it out there before she throws in with the other side irrevocably.
The fake leftist organization known as the Justice Democrats have been pushing Warren hard to formally align with Bern and make their two camps one, effectively dividing the Party forever and leaving us with a truly uphill struggle going into the general election against Trump, a man who is as vicious as a sewer rat and has a pack of them waiting behind.
They have dangled many a tasty bait before her eyes. But she still hasn’t fully bitten yet. She screwed up bad in Texas campaigning against Henry Cuellar for the socialist trying to primary that good Democrat out, but she does not have to cast her lot with them all the way. She is still in a good place for sucking it up and making Biden a good vice.
That is the only reason why it’s even worth it to write this article. We’re not saying it’s a sure thing, or even a likely thing, or any of that. We’re saying it’s possible, that it makes sense, and that it makes enough sense to be worth speculating on publicly. I would like to see it happen. But it absolutely has to be on the correct terms, the terms we’ve been talking about over here for three years now, the terms of America’s moderate core, and the core of the Democratic Party.
In next year’s general election, it’s all going to hinge on our ability to show the people that we are the sane and moderate ones. America desperately needs to return to normalcy after four years of living in the zoo, and we have to show the people that in the vacuum created by the Trump era we haven’t warped too much for that to be possible.
Above all, we have got to tell the people we are not for any sort of socialism. The Democratic Party’s entire future hinges on making sure we say that clearly enough. Trump’s entire reelection strategy revolves around pointing the finger at all the far-out things said and advocated for by the Squad‘s most famous and controversial member, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Having to defend her all the time really sucks, and she’s only a freshman Representative.
Warren’s plans are too close to socialism for us to get behind her entering into the White House- except, just maybe, as a vice.
The strategic requirements of the position are hard to measure in a dissolving political landscape like this one. The evaluation can only be unclear. Given that, we should preserve all our options as long as possible. Warren could still make a good vice, and it is my opinion therefore that, annoying as she is, as annoying as her Warren Weevils are, we do not attack in earnest just yet. She could still be of use.
Warren has never declared openly as our enemy, although campaigning with the “Democratic” Socialists and the Justice Democrats in Texas comes pretty close; to get rid of Trump, I would suffer it for the time being and support her as a vice-presidential candidate.
She has flirted with both sides but remained uncommitted; certainly this is the sign of a turncoat, but that’s just life sometimes. We need her to pacify and bring into the voting booths the radicals on our behalf, which is the reason we’re congratulating her cannibalizing of the Bern.
She’s the only one who could have done that.
Warren was the first choice of the fake left to hamstring Hillary Clinton back in 2016, not Bernie. The campaign was invented by a socialist and was called Run Warren Run, a reference to a scene in the movie Forrest Gump where a mentally retarded person is fleeing rock-chasing tormentors.
You don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Warren didn’t bite that time, either, and so six months to the day after they’d started, Run Warren Run shuttered its doors and Bernie Sanders became a manufactured folk hero, someone the right-wing could trust to take a dump in every Democratic lawn. Her instincts were decent enough back then to let her know she had no chance of winning.
In her heart, she must already know that is the case again.
Poll aggregators like this one from RealClearPolitics show out completely the false media narrative of Biden having a co-frontrunner. Biden is beating Warren like a flea-bitten animal in the overwhelming majority of polls, and any poll where more than just rich white college kids are asked for their opinion, and tying with her even there. On her own, in the driver’s seat, Warren’s case is hopeless.
But she could still do some good for us. Her judgment in the history books will depend on her being selfless and sensible enough to throw her lot behind us and Joe Biden.
In closing, if Warren can bring the radical leftists to the booths (at least, those that aren’t closeted right-wingers), and Trump can send the sane Republicans in there for us once and for all, Biden can bring the moderate core of America, the one that has held this country together during thick and thin, and the Democrats can retake the White House. Of course the whole concept may be about as substantial as a Beach Boys song, but even so.
Bernie Sanders has just been rushed to the hospital with chest pains, and even after everything, it makes me sad to see he’s had to cancel all his upcoming campaign events. Sanders 2020 was not going to happen and was an annoying specter from the past, but it’s sad to see it effectively ended this way. I didn’t wish this for Bernie. I hope he gets better and I believe most of you do too.
To Senator Sanders and his family, therefore, we send our sincerest best wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery. In spite of all you’ve done, Bernie, my heart goes out to you. Perhaps God is trying to tell you something. Please be smart enough to learn.
At the end of the day, it is important to remember there’s a difference between an opponent and an enemy. Bernie Sanders has done and said a lot to place him at ends with us, but we do not wish him dead. Get better, Bernie.
So did anyone watch Hillary and Chelsea Clinton on the Late Show tonight? She sounded good. Real good. It reminded me to say something I’ve been meaning to. Hillary Clinton is the rightful President of the United States of America. I hope to God she runs again and takes our country back. #Clinton2020. Deal with it.
I am going to predict I get some hate mail here, and that is absolutely fine. Please take your very worst and leave it here; Hillary Clinton is too busy saving the country.
By running for president again.
What have we got to lose? Joe Biden is a good man and will be a good president. He will also be a good vice president if a more qualified candidate should happen to come along.
As it works out, we’ve still got one.
Even discussing the other 2020 candidates in the same sentence with Hillary Clinton is an insult both to reason and credulity. None of them created a foundation that provides 2/3 of the AIDS vaccines on Earth. None of them laid the foundations of the public health care system we still enjoy today, twenty-five years before it was passed. Before the Affordable Care Act was called Obamacare, it was called Hillarycare. We would have had it from 1994 on instead of 2009 on, had it not been for Bernie Sanders.
Sanders pointedly abstained with a few of his independent buddies at a time when every vote was needed! Ever look up how many people died for lack of service during that time? A Harvard study said it was forty-five thousand people a year, for twenty-five years. That’s one million, one hundred and twenty-five thousand people dead, and every one of those dead forgotten Americans; on Bern.
Just like the entire Trump era. Feel THAT burn.
Faux-progressive Sanders people have done all they can to discourage this whole Clinton 2020 thing, but that’s because they know it’s the best thing for the country and for the Democratic Party, which they genuinely seem to hate. I have never yet seen a circumstance where the far left has hurt the Republicans somehow. It’s the very opposite.
The GOP, in fact, is getting ready to out-progressive us in the 14th district of New York, even now, where freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a real field day out of being a celebrity-by making all of her constituents sick. They have found-among a host of others- one Scherie Murray, a black woman who immigrated here from Jamaica to run against her, and- This is really horrible, now; we’ve held that seat for decades- the woman, who I repeat will be running as a Republican, is making sense.
Scherie Murray, a Jamaican immigrant and mother of three, jumped into the Republican primary last month. Her campaign commissioned a poll that found 62 percent of voters would support a generic Democrat and 28 percent would back a Republican.
But when asked if they would vote to re-elect Ocasio-Cortez or vote for someone else, 37 percent picked the incumbent and 48 percent favored someone else. Without any candidates named, respondents also said they would prefer a candidate who backed the Amazon deal.
“Twenty-five thousand jobs were ousted,” Murray said. “We should be encouraging businesses to come into the state, versus pushing them out.”
When I read that, I sadly shook my head. The Republicans are laughing at us, and in this case, I don’t blame them. This really is a coup from their perspective; hell, it’s almost a magic trick. They are going to out-progressive the multi-cultural and goodhearted Democratic Party, in the heart of New York City, during the Trump era. You have to hand it to the guys who thought this up, even though we moderates have been screaming at everyone to watch for it. They got it done.
I miss Hillary Clinton, who was always the recipient of such plotting because of how good she was at her job. I miss Hillary Clinton, who always seemed to know what to do and say, and is so completely, so obviously, still the leader of the Democratic Party.
I miss the woman who sounded really, really smart on The Late Show tonight. We hardly ever see her, and yet she gave us the best strategy when the Mueller Report came out. She crushed it at the Women of the World a few years ago. When Ralph Northam of Virginia forced us to call for his resignation, I was proud because I didn’t need her to tell me, in the last analysis. I made the right choice by myself. But there was a great hullabaloo about the whole thing, all day long.
Until Hillary came online and settled the whole thing with a tweet, in a dozen words. There never was a mic drop like this one. It was the Tennessee Stud of mic drops.
Hillary Clinton should run again. Period. She should be the president already, and we all know this. It’s the right thing. Maybe the only thing. Just look around you. Are you seeing the kind of enthusiasm Donald Trump inspires in his base coming out of this primary? Are you worried about it being too ‘divisive’? Beating Trump in an election gets us out of having to impeach him. Then he’s just got to go to court like other people.
Probably less divisive than an impeachment trial.
Hillary should run again because she is just plain smarter than the rest of these guys. There is a reason why Joe Biden did eighty-three campaign events for her and not the other way around. There is definitely a reason why Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were both among those who co-signed for her with an endorsement in 2016. At the end of the day, even Bernie cut his Lorax impersonating out long enough to do what was best for the country, unlike in 1994 with Hillarycare. Even if his followers would not do the same, even if they won’t again, it could not matter less. They are not Democrats anyway. Are not now, never have been, and never will be.
Hillary, if you’re out there reading this, God bless you. Please run again. Please run again, and save us from ourselves.
Ah, socialists. Trying to disembowel us yesterday was a blast, wasn’t it? Just like the good old days, back in 2016. You swarming our Facebook Page by the thousands, trolling on behalf of neo-progressive ideas that would bankrupt the country, and my team and I refuting you for hours- What a wonderful way to spend our time! My favorite people in the world, the old Bernie or Bust crew, reanimated from the spirit world and filled with agonizing life and purpose in the Warren campaign. Perhaps feeling the Bern has turned you all into Walking Dead extras; made in the image of your maker. Collectively you’re like someone crossbred Frankenstein with a good old fashioned zombie plague. If nothing else, I will congratulate you all for your consistency. You’re the best reason possible to endorse someone else, especially since we’ve got a good man like Joe Biden to choose from.
Marianne Williamson was caught on a hot mic by a disingenuous radio host recently, but what she said was priceless even if she was trapped into it. “What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are?” We could have told you, ma’am. You might also want to ask AM Joy Reid. She’s had her own run-ins with these people, and therefore knows exactly what it’s like to see progressives in the way of progress.
How it gladdens my heart (NOT!:) to be returning with you to those halcyon days! It warms my heart to watch you all put in your hours for the Trump 2020 reelection campaign; his best chance lies in silently pointing at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Squad not bothering to even say a word. You got what you wanted back then, and burned us all to the ground rather than suck it up for the good of your country, Bernie Bots. Now you wish to make us lions among lemmings once again. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, though. We have no choice at this point but to take the kid gloves off; you show us how necessary that is every day. I was warned by a friend during the last election that Vote Blue No Matter Who was the wrong way to go. Later I realized he was right and that your ghoulish horde had taken me in. This time I will raise awareness about you though the heavens fall.
As for the overwhelming majority of the rest of America, you friends of ours out there who know why American socialism must be fought without any hope of compromise, you all know what I mean. The only reason there is a prayer in hell for this country’s liberal, democratic future, the only reason we can even talk about socialism or economic inequality instead of going to jail or gulag or concentration camp, is because of the successes scored by “capitalism”, which is not a governmental system at all, but a source of raw power called the world’s free market. Saving it was the most critical, and understated, reason why the Blue Wave last year was globally critical to the dire extent that it was. Attempting to lock it down and place it under control of unqualified bureaucrats gave us both the Nazis and the Communists, and the hundred million dead bodies they produced between them in the horrifyingly bloody twentieth century (Courtois, Stephane, The Black Book of Communism). Socialism is best defined as a very bad way to solve a problem. Socialism is tying your shoes with noodles. It’s putting handcuffs on your horse.
People in this country have rightly abhorred a system in which government is all-intrusive and centralized unreasonably, which of course is what a fully planned, socialist society entails by logical necessity. Every aspect of the people’s life must be carefully chosen for them, according to the will of the planner. When this is the case, the entire apparatus of government, including Max Weber’s key ingredient of state-sponsored force, is like a house with keys, waiting for a master to come claim it. Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Pol Pot. The most vicious people in the history of all mankind were not so because of any genetic flaw inherent in their inner architecture. They were so because they fell under the spell of a strongman, and only partially because of his personal charisma.
With all a nation’s might consolidated in his hand, the strongman dictator can control the flow of data using propaganda and disinformation of the time we see used all the time by actors from Vladimir Putin’s Russia and Xi Jinping’s China. In both cases, their systems offer their leaders a chance to rule under conditions where he faces no checks and balances. Oligarchy, state capitalism, controlled democracy, corporate socialism. All are different forms of a hybrid system challenging Enlightenment democracies like America’s for worldwide domination. Over here it has been introduced to the public by kindly-looking faces like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and, most recently, Elizabeth Warren. She sold us out big time by sucking up the socialist Justice Democrats last Monday, then sunk the hook by holding a rally there the very next day. Raising awareness about Warren’s choice to step even further into the socialist camp is therefore a duty we cannot delegate elsewhere.
It should be accepted as axiomatic that socialism in America should be resisted at all cost if we do not wish to share the fate of Germany (National Socialism; Nazi is short for NationalsoZialist), or worse, Russia- which became after World War I the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. It should also be taken as a fact that the threat is very dire; many believe that Trump is doing all he can from the right to weaken and co-opt American checks and balances, just as Viktor Orban’s Hungary has displayed as a model. Orban, by the way, was invited to speak here in Washington D.C. last spring and did so. Two out of three modern states are not democracies, and in them, we see many common factors at play in our society, in danger of a democratic collapse unlike any seen before. Things revert to the old way of bosses so big they’re basically kings and the legislative body nothing more than a rubber-stamp to serve as the neo-king’s pseudo-democratic showpiece.
This can also work with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as Amnesty International or the Human Rights Watch. Intergovernmental organizations can also be rubber-stamps for dictators. Prototypes like the Communist Internationale was for the Soviets after Stalin’s time was passed. and the Reichstag for Hitler have given way to Iron Curtain socialist treaties after the war. The tendency of IGOs to be used in this matter is as socialist as both Hitler and Stalin were, which is to say, socialists right to the core. They each wanted to plan out every aspect of the lives of their citizens, and were willing to put them to unimaginable torment if they did not toe the line. Socialism is inherently built with that tendency inside it, like a time bomb. Evidence from everyplace on earth suggests that the result of planning a society, regardless of how noble and sincere the revolutionary aims of the original planners, economic equality and all, is exactly the opposite of what they were aiming at. Socialism has failed at every turn.
The trouble in this specific instance, however, is not even the merits and flaws of socialism itself. We’re not even close to having that conversation, but the Justice Democrats do not understand that, or any of this. That’s trouble in its purest form, and in copious amount. It’s been trouble for years, and we were finally starting to see the end of it. Bernie Sanders 2020 is a shipwreck and the Bots haven’t even been bothering to defend him or that for quite a while now. I’ve been wondering about that for a number of reasons but condensed to one they amount to this: reality has never bothered them before. Why now?
I didn’t get it until yesterday when I published a piece criticizing sharply Elizabeth Warren’s decision to ally with a Justice Democrat candidate in the TX-28 Representative Race. Shortly before I’d made a meme that stated frankly that “You sold us out, Liz.” Upon seeing this, they multiplied in thousands within minutes-literally. Under an hour, and it was as if we had killed an Africanized bee. “Liar! Russian bot! Stream of purified obscenity!” They were pretty wild, all right. Here is something sent to me by a Bernie Bot-turned-Warren Weevil today.
[Millennial Democrats] Contact MD Why the hell have you dropped me from being able to comment on any of your posts? Do you not enjoy being called out to support your stance? Unless i get some reply from you guys, i will make it my mission to out you to the world for beings the bots you are.
This person, who we’ll call June Apple for reasons she will recognize if she’s out there, might want to listen up. Threatening people you do not know is very dangerous; finding your personal data took me exactly seven minutes and fifty-two seconds; suuuuuper easy. I knew it would be; you’re just that type. To prove a point I actually set a timer. Here is a look at what that means if you do it to someone more hardnosed or unstable than yours truly. It’s called doxing, e.g.getting targeted in real life for things that happened online.
June Apple- Age 670. Retired. City, State- Camp Davis, California. Phone number- 5**-7*3-73*3. Address: 818** Ho*g*ass Ave. Email address: JrApple15@yahoo.com.
Hey, hackers who are after me, that’s her real data, right there. She’s a leftist too; knock yourselves out getting to it. Take your time, it will help you.
As for you, Ms. Apple, I am shaking my head at the sloven you displayed in making this sacred vow of destruction- and then warning me about it. Dangerous! Good God, Jim! Why, Lord, do you place it on my heart to educate my Fury-like persecutors? Can’t they do anything for themselves? Holy Moly, ma’am. If you’re going to make it your life’s mission to destroy people often, can you please promise me you will be more careful about it? I could have found fifty thousand ways to break your back for this; VERY good thing for you it was only the kindhearted me. You are a Democrat and as such I harbor no wish to shatter you; you were banned, according to our social media coordinator, for being obnoxiously pro-Warren (not that you were alone). Respectful dissent is welcome; viciousness and slander are not. Please, June. In the future be less of a slob.
Sloppy, slovenly and bloodthirsty; these are the hallmarks of the Bernie Bot, and always have been. Ugly as their conduct has been these last few days, it hasn’t been unusual. On the contrary, this was completely typical. The vehemence and lack of reason these leftist trolls showed during the frenzied attack they made left no doubt in my mind at all. The Bots are still around and there’s more of them than ever, they’ve merely switched form, like eggs becoming pupae on their way to Camp Warren. I propose the term “Warren Weevils” therefore to record and raise awareness about this newest manifestation of the same old loony left. Here’s what kind of feedback we got, before half an hour had gone by. Take a good look, folks, and ask yourselves in earnest: Is this really something that you want anything to do with? You can take it on faith that middle America will be horrified, though. You’ll be burning (berning) us right to the ground.
For the record, nothing is more dangerous than calling everyone you don’t agree with a Russian Bot, since this makes it all the easier for Russia and China to hide their true disinformation kits and blur the lines of truth all the more.
The situation summarized is this: the Bernie Bots and other sundry extremists have coalesced around Warren, summoned an alliance with their natural temperamental allies in the Woman or Bust sect that has recently been forming, and will soon proceed to try and consume Joe Biden, the lone champion of public resistance to insane socialist policies. This is why Biden must receive our vehement support, and at once. If the neo-progressives are allowed to fully hijack the Party, it will be a long term disaster. It will tarnish the Party’s reputation for calm strategy and iron loyalty once and for all. This cannot be allowed.
We had not planned to have to go this route; we weren’t going to declare for almost three/fourths of a year right now. It was only when I noticed that when combining forces, Bern and Warren are in control of almost half the party’s support that I realized we might actually be in trouble if they joined in full alliance, which Warren all but signed in blood last week when endorsing a Justice Democrat in her attempt to primary out a real one, Henry Cuellar. We had hopes for a time of Warren making Biden a good vice, but going down this road indicates a worst-case scenario. If a Warren/Sanders She had never aligned herself directly with the people who since the moment of their organization’s inception have done nothing but run down Democrats and make efforts to knock us off at every turn, such as Joe Crowley who was most famously unseated in an upset victory by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I predicted at that time that her strategists, who are revolutionary-minded, Che Guevara obsessed hipsters, would move in accordance with guerilla warfare principles by using Ocasio-Cortez as an outpost, a springboard from which to launch new attacks and further advance their assault on our Party. This has indeed been the case and could soon become a flood if we do not take the proper precautions. Starting now and from this day onward, tell everyone you know. Their rabies have hybridized and become treatment-resistant. Do not bother trying to reason with them. That is what killed us in 2016. We’ve been living underground in trenches for years thanks to them.
We must organize as well as we are able. Old grudges must be put aside for now if moderate Democrats like us are to succeed in holding the center, and this we must do at any cost. They are not capable of using the power wisely, if they get it. Retributive pettiness has always been the socialist way; Alexander Solzhenitsyn of Russia was given eight years by the Soviets in the Gulag Archipelago his three-volume book immortalized by name, for writing a letter criticizing Stalin’s tactical planning during World War II. This is what they do, Democrats. It just is.
Their ugliness, slander, and viciousness knows no bounds; note the hacker who most recently tried sent a death threat by email to someone else as recently as June. I will note that this is the most vicious and versatile computer criminal who has ever tried to hack me, and those are not words to be spoken lightly. They have tried to take us down everywhere from St. Petersburg, Russia to Hangzhou, China, more than a thousand times. Yet this guy is the only one known already for making death threats to other WordPress users, users we would be highly interested in speaking to and hearing the stories of. Here is a picture of what we have been up against, just today and with only one of many. Frenzied hatred. Murderous rage.
A good seven other bruteforce attacks have also taken place, just in the last twenty-four hours. Many, like the one you see above with no geolocation visible, are able to do that because they are now using Tor, unlike in the past when Russian and Chinese hackers would ping us directly from IP addresses associated with foreign intelligence services. They’ve got the KGB after me, basically. All for telling the truth to Americans regarding American politics! By now it should be clear to anyone with the tiniest lick of sense that the hard fighting will soon begin again. When it does we are going to have to come together. It’s either that or be obliterated. For it is time to make no mistake about it; we are one another’s final hope. These people, to state it simply, are preparing to engage us in a death-struggle, an ideological death-struggle, with the naked lust for power motivating them and driving on their efforts. They have ordered their followers to fix bayonets. We are absolutely all we have. For my part, I will work with and do ANYTHING I can for the people who are planning to be down in these trenches when it comes time to resist. Feel free to get ahold of us, allies, and if not us, somebody. Please get together, folks, and organize, for one thing is for sure. They are coming.
That would be Bernie Sanders except that he never was, is not now, and never will be a Democrat. We’re used to this kind of thing out of Bern; it’s what he does. It’s Elizabeth Warren. He’s drooled over the prospect of running against her and she is not helping. “TX-28, we’re gonna get this done,” she shrilly shouted on stage.
Here is a riddle to solve if you can, sing the bells of Notre Dame. Who is a traitor and who is a Dem?
What caused Warren to break with our ranks? Who knows why she would do such a thing? Perhaps it’s a tumor, or something infectious. Like a socialist brain disease. Otherwise, why else would she go crazy and start endorsing enemies who have sworn to destroy all semblance of sanity in the Party? That 2% wealth tax is going to get us killed.
I’m not happy to be writing this article. Not at all. I hadn’t planned to have to agree with the staff over at Breitbart News about anything, ever, let alone this week. I have never considered Warren an outright enemy, even though she’s got a whole grocery list of plans even nuttier than Bernie’s (if such a thing is even possible). At least unlike Bernie, she can explain theoretically why they might work. Also, we could use a good vice for Joe Biden and I thought she could help to weld the rift in the Party Bernie the non-Democrat tore.
Unless, of course, she makes a habit out of trucking with the enemy.
We’re not going to play games about this, Warren. If you cast your lot with these people, we will fight you with uncompromising persistence. You’ll remember that word, I’m sure. On another subject- Are you nuts? That brat is not worth the laundry of Henry Cuellar, who is a moderate Democrat and therefore our friend. We don’t need any more of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; she is the most annoying person in the world and like Cuellar’s opponent completely unqualified.
Warren must know this too; she’s a calculating person underneath all the wacky plans. She used to be a Republican; her best friend in those days was a woman named Katrina Harry. “Liz was a diehard conservative,” Harry told Politico in a recent interview.
It is our opinion that a leopard can never change its spots.
Utility consumer advocate Barbara Alexander was shown an old essay of Warren’s and was disgusted, making a comment which applies to pretty much everything she does.
“She simplistically makes conclusions without any analysis of actual facts, just economic theory.”
Just what we need, Liz, another crazy to give Trump the only possible plan that he might win with.
Way to go.
She’s doing this because she believes it is politically expedient- and what more proof could you ask for that she doesn’t belong in the White House? This is a complete disgrace.
The Justice Democrats grew out of the cancerous petri dish that was the remnants of Bernie Sanders’s 2016 campaign. They have given a boost to Trump at every turn. Their numbers are chosen from two groups of people; the ‘Hold your nose to the polls’ type and the Vote for Jill Stein type. They either did or did not understand how badly they were hurting Hillary Clinton’s chances back then, which means they’re either stupid or evil.
Let us make no bones about it. The more Warren enters the socialist, Justice Democrat fold, the harder we will fight her.
They have not changed their ways; these days they’ve got a different tack. They find the most radical and silly people and use them to sniper out good Democrats. Then they make Trojan Horses out of them, infecting the Party.
Then we have to spend months or years mopping up the slop.
Trump is running against AOC and Ilhan Omar. He doesn’t want to fight Nancy Pelosi or us, her people; we’re too strong by far. So he won’t tangle with us. He’ll plan an end-run right around us into the touchdown zone that is the American fence-rider’s keys to the presidency. And as of Monday, he’s got Elizabeth Warren out there running interference for him.
Aren’t economics people supposed to be smart? What about professors at Harvard? They seem to be as smart or not smart as the rest of us. I guess there’s not much else to be expected out of someone who lied about her ethnicity (she’d spent years claiming she was a Native American, as white hipsters are known to do) when applying to Harvard in the first place and then later allowed themselves to be used as a poster boy for ethnic diversity among their staff. She even went so far as to get a DNA test done- it showed evidence she might have had a Native ancestor in her family, six generations ago. Lol.
I mean, literally. They put her picture on a poster. I feel silly even thinking about it.
Now Elizabeth Warren is throwing him a helping hand. Unbelievable.
As a side note, this isn’t being written for Joe Biden. Although we do choose to endorse him (mostly because he can say no to these people), this has very little to do with him per se. This is the same fight as always, sane liberal centrists against fake left socialist crazies. We have been here before, many times. This is being written for the sanity of the human race! There’s no way to overstate the case.
We have never attacked Warren before, though; we still feel she would make a good vice president if she turns back from this horrid course right away. If she does not, then we feel it fair to inform everyone we will give her the same treatment as the Bern.
#NeverBernie (check us out on Facebook)is a stance we’ve taken for many other reasons than the unpleasant characteristics of the Bern himself. Even the fact of his campaign’s Russian infestation, worse than Trump’s, is not the biggest reason. It’s because of the socialist plague that gave us both the Nazis and the Soviets, who in the end were nothing more than rival sects of socialists. Nothing in the world, no candidate or Party or anything else, is worth letting yourself become the vector of plague.
Speaking of Bern, here is a video of him, shirtless and drunkenly howling out Woody Guthrie’s ‘This Land is Your Land’ while vacation honeymooning in the Soviet Union.
You can’t make this kind of thing up, man. Shakespeare couldn’t have done it, let alone me.
We’ve obviously endorsed Cuellar. Millennial Democrats are Democrats fire and foremost. We understand loyalty, we love the Party with all our hearts, and we will do anything for it- especially when it comes time to fill the trenches to oppose the crazy socialists. Cuellar has said the same, so there you have it. Do anything you can to help him win, folks. He’s our guy.
The Justice Democrats, on the contrary, are complete and total enemies. The people who run it are the very definition. Remember We Will Replace You? The org they started to hold our feet to the fire with so-called progressive ‘litmus tests’? Or the Brand New Congress, when they wanted to get rid of EVERY professional in either legislative branch who refused what amounted to a loyalty oath to the Bernfuhrer framed up like a questionnaire?
These rank among the stupidest ideas ever conceived of in politics or anywhere, and Elizabeth Warren’s new friends were the ones who came up with it all. The latter two are not around anymore; they’ve been absorbed into the ranks of the Justice Democrats. The Democratic Socialists of America are brought to you by the very same clan as well. They’re as enemy as it gets. This is not going to fly, Senator Warren. Not even a little.
We don’t forget that you were their first choice to hamstring us in 2016; remember Run Warren Run, folks? They didn’t even look at Bernie until they had tried for six entire months to coax her into doing it instead. She didn’t bite, knowing it would have cost her every friend she ever had. It’s clear now that today is very different.
Elizabeth Warren, mark carefully these words. You will not be forgiven for this unless you reverse your conduct at once. You could still be of great use, but that will not survive the race in Texas- which thankfully hasn’t happened yet. You still have time; therefore use it. Going forward we’ll be keeping a close eye on you.
Attention, all Democrats and anyone else who likes to think of themselves as good Americans. The 2020 presidential election is in peril already, and not by the usual suspects; or, at least. We now have every reason, both in terms of good sound common sense and in terms of evidence, to state categorically that China has been making large-scale and highly threatening moves toward taking over the job of hacking our democracy into the ground from Russia.
Needless to say, the news is dire. These guys are ten times as strong as the Russians. Smarter, more disciplined, more subtle. Please, folks. Look through this carefully and then go raise awareness. We’re on our own out here, against the worst of the worst. This guy Xi Jinping, prime minister of the People’s Republic of China (who locked up a million Muslim without cause last year), has called Putin his “best, most dearest friend”, but actually, he’s pretty much made him into a butler. We hardly need to revisit how often we’ve received a sniveling display of Trump’s pathetic need to suck up to them both.
The Chinese, doing the dirty digital work for the Russians. Makes sense, plenty of supporting evidence, Chinese hackers everywhere. It all fits, except for one thing:
What is China going to get out of the deal?
Tough question to be sure, and no certain answers, but just the same. Maybe we can take a shot at this one, too. Follow the money, you all know the game by now.
The Nikkei Asian Review gives us a major clue into the state of all this wheeling and dealing, and it’s consistent with the pattern we’ve been seeing. Russia and China are doing a lot of business but it’s not really good for Russia, which is trading its oil- the lifeblood of the country and the source of Putin’s personal fortune- away at a real steal for China.
“China is now the largest overseas market for Russian oil, gobbling up a quarter of all her northern neighbor’s oil exports.” -Yohei Ishikada, Nikkei Asian Review.
That’s what China’s getting out of the deal to prop Putin up like Hitler did Mussolini. Cheap oil. What a surprising motivator, in today’s world. How is it going for these two old bosom friends? They hardly seem to know themselves.
His partner Putin can strut around like Trump is doing now (oh, and so much for white supremacy, you two bastions of Occidental pride. Way to make us look real slick. This man you’d probably refer to as a celestial is taking you both for a ride, not to mention the rest of us. God, way to go, you pair of sloppy jokers. Jesus.), doing his best Foghorn Leghorn impersonation, telling everyone loudly and repetitively that both men are, in fact, roosters. I guess we’ll have to give them that much, at least, even if they are only a banty and a tom in ill health.
Meanwhile, Xi waltzes off with the world hegemony, laughing all the way to his new personal bank- the nation of Switzerland. It’s possible that the Chinese have bought out the Russian interest in all this altogether. History will know, one day.
This has now breached the level of a conspiracy theory. We’ve been waiting for this ever since they began trying to hack us, more than a year ago. America, I am begging you all for help, this is about us all. Raising awareness is always the goal, but this time it’s more critical than ever before since I’ve been writing. Produce original content every way you can. Posts, memes, articles, whatever you can think up. It’s all for the sake of catching eyes and winning hearts for good!
Returning to our unbelievably important topic, it will not be Russia but China who will do Trump’s campaign work this time. China has already been the main offender of hacking, both around here and around the nation and the western world for more than a year. They are also giving off nationalism in waves, like the spray of a skunk. An inherent contempt of the American progressive (a real progressive, not a fake Bernie Bot neoprog) permeates their policy toward us.
Think of their racist slogan for us, ‘baizuo’ (white left). Real nice. They have no respect for us at all and think none of us will know enough to think to look for them. Power grid hacks like we’ve been exchanging with the Russians, theft, and disinformation. Recent-and mammoth- leveling up of sheer numbers of attempts.
With thousands of hours of research on this topic under my belt and over a thousand pieces of photo/email evidence indicating in this direction, it finally dawned on me. They’re cooking something big up this time, and it seems to be working.
Trump’s recent decision not to approve funding for the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates that he’s on board. Probably this is a Russian-hatched plot, but strongly augmented by an unfathomable amount of Chinese muscle who’s been coming in and pulling the triggers. I have had a Russian try and hack me once in this whole entire year and even he seemed like a honey trap. Look how clumsy he was.
It will not be the Russians spearheading the main branch of the effort as they no longer possess the element of surprise although my guess is that strategical guidance will continue to come from the Kremlin, Putin is always the creative one. He’s just making rock soup, is all, same as George Patton, taking it as it comes like the blackjack player he is.
On some levels Putin appears to have hit the jackpot again, even though it’s showing signs of getting out of control on him. He found a rich resource, in manpower one hundred percent of the riches because China has so many people, and he’s got an angle that no one would ever see unless they happened to stumble across it as I did. The Chinese have been the primary culprits for more than a year now, I have kept records and made many copies to place with friends-in case. Who knows what they would do, we hardly even know what they are after. When they first attacked me I was totally befuddled. It didn’t really seem to be their fight; after all, I’d never written a word about them.
It’s only once you look at the financial sector, which naturally includes hacking and energy, that it becomes obvious why Xi got interested in this. And now here we are, on the verge of their being our new Public Enemy #1.
“The wider energy sector has found itself front and center in the hybrid cyber warfare campaign that has extended the battlefield. In recent months, Russia has been the archvillain of those campaigns. But China plies its hacking trade widely, and so this latest disclosure comes as little surprise.
Well, knowing is half the battle, at any rate. Man, oh, man, where is GI Joe when you need him? I guess he’s hanging out with Joe DiMaggio someplace listening to Simon and Garfunkel (just please, no Bridge over Troubled Waters; thanks a whole lot, crazy Bernie or Busters, for spoiling that song for me for life.)
See, this right here is the thing. They’re the ones planning it all out, they got the best of us before, and they seem fully aware that our intelligence communities have not put this together all the way yet.
That means we’re on our own, Democrats. Tell everyone you know, show them this article. We have less than five hundred days to save the country. We have got some work to do. We have some really good opponents to catch up to; good thing they’re Communists or they might actually win.
The only way we can catch up is through diligent training and education, and we had better start now. We have to adapt the cadre training model into something a free thinker can use without turning his stomach. We have to learn technology, finance, law, political strategy, and history.
And we have to know them well! Better than the opposition does. We are currently up against the three most powerful men on Earth according to Forbes Magazine, and they will certainly have some competent personnel lying around who can give us a very tough fight as we currently are. We must improve! The cause demands it. That is what they do; that is what we need to do.
That last, by the way, learning history, is a lot more than being able to sound good at a bar or display a pretentious wordiness. It’s the most critical step in all this to a member of a cadre who is there to fight and win, because it provides the basis of a foundational understanding to all the rest, plus every other major science. The Romans would have called it a sine qua non, an indispensable condition, and they would have been one hundred percent correct.
In the last analysis, as a takeaway from this voluminous article, the British publication The Economist points out another insight that might prove key at some point later on. At one point writing this article, I decided to do a Google search for “what does China really want from Russia?”
As I mentioned earlier. Cheap oil.
Oil is all Putin has, and all he’s getting back for it is Xi’s help backing his play. It now becomes obvious that Xi needs Putin far less than Putin needs Xi (neither needs Trump as anything but a big orange golem to do some mental defective’s task now and again) and argues all of Russia is being weakened as a result. Perhaps the Chinese are permanently preparing to take over the powerful cyber-assets that Russia can hardly use anymore; again, without the element of surprise, Russia’s size-of-Italy economy can never hope to be more than a paper tiger.
Quite the opposite for Xi, whose economy is the second strongest in the world, and who has ten times as many people as Putin-literally. 150 million to 1.42 billion. Putin is not a paper tiger at all if he can command the might of China, but that does not seem to be how things are working out in practice. Putin may find that he himself can have a personal Mephistopheles, not just be Trump’s. They’re like three Russian babushkas crossbred with voodoo dolls.
It’s definitely a fitting comeuppance for the both of them, but as tempting as it might be to leave a couple of true and utter villains in the desert to die of thirst, letting China snatch the World Island is not what’s best for the world; just look at what they’re doing to us! We will have to fight the Chinese tooth and nail, here at Millennial Democrats, and it’s actually thinkable that for a time the domestic and Russian opposition may end up being allies to resist what would amount to a second Mongol invasion of Europe. Wouldn’t it be terrible if we ended up having to stand with Putin and Trump to keep China from overtaking all? Yes, absolutely, but stranger things have happened.
In any possible scenario, don’t forget to vote a straight blue ticket next year.
In the end, it’s got to be useful to realize that, as with everything else going on these days, this is not about Trump, he’s just Putin’s donkey (now quite possibly on loan to Xi Jinping).
It’s about geopolitics and finance long term. This hacking transition between our two most dangerous global adversaries is a part of it; we’re in a transitional phase of the game, a chess master might say. And I tell you this, world, I shout it from the rafters! They are up to something right this very minute, laying the groundwork and pipelines for whatever scumbag plot they’ve dreamed up for next year. That’s what all this hacking and setting up of disinformation and preparing to create their own troll farms is about.
The Chinese are a notoriously subtle people, they’re far more sophisticated than the Russians. They’re going to hit us as hard as they can, as suddenly as they can, from an angle they think we will not expect, and unless we can wake people up in time somehow they’ll succeed. They’re doing it as we speak (probably literally, I’ll check my email to see if there are any fresh Bruteforce Attacks that have come in even while I wrote this article here in a minute).
They’re talking about a Chinese troll farm, an Internet Research Agency China! The Epoch Times has already started to become this very thing, that’s why Facebook yanked their adds three days after it was discovered that they’re owned trolls themselves have prototypes already, they’re called 50 Centers for the amount of money they get paid to do what they do. The MSM has not yet fully put this together yet, only bits and pieces, who knows what their rationale would be for not raising the rafters on this one.
Maybe some of them want to be cautious, journalistic standards and all; okay, we can dig it, I like to think I live by them too- just not to the point of embracing cowardice.
Maybe, like last time, they’ll want to wait until all the facts are in- when the next Mueller Report comes out in 2022.
We don’t have that luxury, America, and more specifically you Democrats who are the only ones at all who have set their minds and hearts toward guarding her, our beautiful mother and fatherland. but we at Millennial Democrats have known now for over a year because the enemy hackers themselves were our instructors. Our WordPress blog has now been the target of more than six hundred bruteforce hacking attempts, and now they’re making larger moves. Even Facebook has had to do something (which it only ever does if it gets dangerous to Zuckerberg’s bottom line not to), that being the suspension of Epoch Times ads-which were all Trump ads! That can only mean Facebook is concerned about it too, but everyone is being quiet-
Except for us.
Start watching for this; it is NOT incredible. Would that it were! We are up against an enemy this time who is ten times stronger than Russia; Xi has forced Putin to be his donkey boy. They’ve got some new tricks, and some old tricks with new faces. Keep your eyes on it, Democrats! Record the tendency. Take screenshots! Save emails. We have to be able to prove this six ways from Sunday, or the big boys in our intelligence community, a la 2016, will just keep ignoring it right up until the bitter end.
What are some of these new tricks, you ask? What got me on this line of thought today? Something quite at random, as it works out. I was just sort of absently scrolling through my timeline on Facebook, and here I find being shared and Liked by leftists a story that did not belong in the newspaper it belonged to- The Epoch Times, half ultra-conservative and half conspiracy factory. I had to check it out, and as usual,
The far-right disinformation rag known as the Epoch Times has been running this story on a black woman who has just been made a general. That’s fantastic in our eyes, and in the eyes of many others also on the left.
So why would the Epoch Times be running it? They’re somewhere between Breitbart News and the Russian disinformation office- both of whom also were taught ritualistically to exploit racial issues in America. I guess I’d have to say my DissectFake button went into overdrive right about then. Sure enough, the only story I could find about a black woman colonel being made a general, Lorna Mahlock, was a year old (that’s a real article, folks, back there in the link, NOT the Epoch Times).
Readable or not, why would the Epoch Times not only run such a story but dig it up and revive it and recirculate it after a year? It was really quite a puzzle and still is, other than that it’s clearly a honey trap, meaning they’re hoping to draw in and reprogram a few disgruntled leftists. Strange.
What sort of weird plot is this? I asked myself, puzzled- as puzzled as I was the first time the Chinese tried hacking into this blog. China? Hm, thought I. It didn’t seem to make much sense. For the likes of this guy to be hacking the blog was one thing; after all, I did articles on him and his boss all the time.
Upon looking it up I could not find a word about this woman anywhere else. So I Googled it with the words “epoch times” in quotation marks (which whittles down the search engine optimization [SEO] down a great deal; good way to get answers quick, folks. Know this stuff! They do! We cannot let them get ahead of us in anything).
And when I did, the most bizarre article came up. It’s a piece by the New Yorker on this other magazine that’s made to lie to Chinese people living abroad from China (members of the Chinese Diaspora, a term we will revisit), specifically students. Upon reading a ways into that, I saw what the relevance was. The New Yorker article was talking about the Epoch Times and a recent discovery regarding it made by NBC, just twelve days ago on August 20.
The Epoch Times is owned by the Chinese.
Unbelievable. Right on the cusp of the biggest week of cyber-assaults in MD’s proud history, we note that Facebook also seems to have taken action. They canceled the Epoch Times’s ads three days after this was discovered. A “Czechoslovakian” hacker sent a virus in a message to all kinds of people I know on the same day that some weirdo from France-who, as it works out, lived in an area where a very large portion of France’s three-quarters of a million Chinese emigres live- kept trying to hack me all day long. Circumstantial evidence keeps mounting up and intensifying.
Researching this, incidentally, we found out that a Czech IP address can be bought quite easily, usable from any point in the world. It may use NordVPN to do it as they have forty-five servers in the Czech Republic, and many people at this point know that’s the very VPN hackers like to use the best, especially those who like to use Tor Browser a lot, accessing the deep web and firing off shots at me from. This a
One guy actually managed numerous times to attempt his hack through Tor nodes themselves, which was interesting because the Geolocation feature came up grey.
Tor makes you anonymous, of course, but even still the timestamps told on the guy. It told me it had happened many hours before, and I just had I have no proof that would hold up in court proving this guy is Chinese, but certainly, the reviews left about his IP address on whatismyIPaddress.com labeling him a hacker at least ten times made me wonder. He was using the very same techniques like the ones who try and get me all the time from Hangzhou, XML exploits, trying to log in here as ‘admin’ over and over,
The big one, though, is that all of these guys with all these hacking complaints-from many, many different websites including some that are innocuous- seem to have gotten started the same week- the one Donald Trump took office in or later that year, 2017. Not one of them has a single complaint from before then. Not a one.
I read this one book on cadre training regiments that Chinese Communist Party schools use to indoctrinate and prepare their recruits for ideological warfare with, which hints at why this might be; they call it party entrepreneurialism. It’s a decentralizing sort of strategy and a useful one because it’s not likely they’re even being specifically, personally asked to sign a contract per se for any of this. Although past a certain point no Westerner can know exactly what they do, in a state-run capitalist society. Basically, they know there’s going to be money in it for them anytime they can get anyone the boss
This has only been known for eleven days. We are not far behind, folks, we got lucky. I really just chanced across this quite per happenstance, it wasn’t doing opposition research or anything like that. I was just reviewing my timeline on Facebook. Hardly even thinking about politics and certainly not Chinese politics.
Who knew this would literally lead to what may very well be the most critical single factor in next year’s election!
They’ve got this college newspaper aimed at Chinese students abroad, College Daily. It’s being called by this stupid new term of a “post-truth” paper; Let’s here in America not be afraid to call a lie a lie! Those are lie papers, not post-truth. They’re blatant falsehood papers, so let’s meet their falsehoods with a sternly repeated truth- It turns out the Epoch Times, right-wing disinfo paper, is Chinese!
The ones operating the paper are emigres, part of that Diaspora thing we were just talking about. It’s called the Golan Fang sect. Back in the 1980s, it was little more than a public workout program for Chinese people. But after 1999, for reasons Western outsiders are not privy to (although sooner or later, the reason why will turn up, it always does) it fell out of Beijing’s favor and was ruthlessly suppressed. Its leaders were chased into exile, some ended up here, and from that fact alone they’ve been assumed by our intelligence communities to be anti-China’s government.
However, things are not always as simple as they seem.
Turns out these Golan Fangs here, religious cult types like Tulsi Gabbard, ran 11,000k Trump adds last year alone. That is more pro-Trump adds put out by them than anyone else. No other group in all the world, not Russia nor the RNC nor the Kochtopus, ran that many ads for Trump last year. Fishy? You bet your life. Here at Millennial Democrats, regular readers will already know that in politics, and when up against this shifty segment of the global elite especially, things are almost never like they’re being put out there as. This is no different and a stellar example besides. It’s just another con. #FakeLeftIsAltRight.
Don’t be fooled by the anti-Chinese reputation this lot has got. The Epoch Times is as dirty as they get and it’s performing a task China’s government needs with great enthusiasm and alacrity. They’ve been a highly persecuted sect for the last twenty years. That’s why they’re over here now. They have every reason to cut a deal with Xi. Maybe if they can make him happy, they can all go home, fish one another out of the labor camps, and take each other out for beers and sake.
All they’ve got to do is a nice hard and dirty number down on us.
You can take it on faith the dear Epoch staff is controlled opposition by this point even if they started out genuine. If they’re pushing Trump this hard, forget it. 11,000+ Trump ads in a year? That is not the work of a hobbyist unless it was a peculiar sort of autist like me. It’s too big and too expensive for that by a damn sight. At the College Daily, the other spreader of perfidious untruth, they’ve got trained teams learning how to use clickbait- just as we’ve seen more and more these last four years and even prior. They are organized, fanatical, and pretty good. We have got to catch up now. Soon it will be too late.
It’s just like Lenin said, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” It’s this man and his legacy we’re up against, folks, in terms both of his philosophy and his iron political doctrines. Direct lineage. China’s Mao learned from Russia’s Stalin whose mentor and master was Lenin, founder of the Soviet Union, the evilest empire the world has ever known, and also to that most evil and merciless system, Leninist Communism, the variety that starved to death five million of its own people in the first five years it had the power to.
For a thought toward what we’re really up against here, let’s briefly discuss how much more lethal and cruel Communism was than even fascism (which in large part justified itself by pointing at the Soviets without one single word). Even if we include the Nazis, we are still talking about the most lethal system ever. These people killed FAR more people than the Nazis. There’s a reason why we’re so anti-socialism around here.
We might not have any cadre training; hell, many of us never went to college. It doesn’t matter. The free thinking activist who takes on such rigorous training for the love of God and country alone will always defeat the mechanical drudgy Communist. They have no choice but to murder their people into doing what they want.
As an aside, Democrats would never be forced into such a foul unnecessity. Why? Because we have a philosophy, and a good one. With a core made of decency and strength and light. The people we’ve got are all here by choice. For free. Because we see what’s going on and we have set out in grim earnest to stop these savages in their tracks.
God bless the American Democratic Party, that is blessed with such amazing personnel.
In the Black Book of Communism, Stephane Courtois lays the numbers out flat and stark. The Nazis, deliberately bestial and murderous animals that they were, even so were not able to even get near the body count of the Communists. 20-25 million taken out by Nazis, and 80-100 million killed by Communism.
When I hear that, I see the moronic face of Bernie Sanders, chuckling like a zombie ghoul in some restless awful corner of my brain. “To me, democratic socialism means democracy, basically,” said our dear old St. Bernard.
STOP DRAGGING IT THROUGH THE MUD, THEN! DROP THE SOCIALISM! It’s advocating for mass murder and the Gulag Archipelago. Statistically, as we have seen- and still see now in places like Venezuela- I could tell you all to volunteer at Auschwitz with a better conscience that I’d tell you to Feel the Bern, all because of that reckless vicious socialism. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Here’s that video again where he’s getting drunk with the Soviets on his honeymoon, howling out Woody Guthrie in a shirtless and not quite presidential manner.
These days the cult of Mao is dead; there’s not much to be gained by inspiring people anymore with Enlightenment liberty or Revolutionary utopia. Both are a total joke to the people we are up against. But the society he started, the party schools and cadre training and endlessly fanatical disciples, is alive and well on Planet Earth- just like Satan.
This means that China is, even more, a threat this year than Russia! They are going to be our chief adversary next year while we are all still watching for Macedonians and Russians- right after the Federal Election Commission has been shut down! They are counting on their ability to catch us off guard again even as we look for it.
We have to tell everyone we can! This is BEYOND critical! Raise awareness! The country is depending on our ability to care about it. Right now the whole world is on a precipice, anything could happen to set things off. World War I started because people were bored and they still are. We are cleaning up that mess to this very day, and it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
Here are some screenshots, taken just today. Even as I finished doing my homework, I realized this was something really big. Nobody has seen this yet so far as I know. We have to raise awareness this time; it’s not just a moral imperative. There is something big about to happen, and everyone is looking in the wrong direction. Look at how obvious the Russians are these days.
Sound the alarm! Tell everyone you know! Call your Senator, your Representative; call the White House if you’ve somehow gotten the impression he’s not part of it, he brings you up to speed in word and deed, constantly. The Chinese are ten times more dangerous than the Russians ever were. We have to get ready. Now.
Donald Trump is at it again, and he is not alone. It’s just like professional wrestling. Heel, vs. Hero. This feud he’s got going with the Squad, that being the famous and infamous four-person bloc of socialist junior Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and to a lesser extent Ayanna Pressley (who somewhat unfairly is often lumped together with the rest, even when she herself did nothing wrong) is the single most difficult problem facing Democrats today. Donald Trump has turned the four of them into his own personal Goldstein a la 1984, a bogeyman to stir up his base with. They themselves stir the pot at every turn.
And we’ve got to clean up the slop; a Democrat’s due.
As if that lot needed any more stirring! We won’t need to remind anyone of the slaughter in El Paso, Texas recently, or in Dayton, but one day it could be useful to note this was written in the aftermath of those shootings. It all ties together, rather horribly so.
To support these four women, strong and intelligent though they be, in a proportion commensurate both with their own behavior and with the significance they bear to all this in mind is not easy, even though you’d think it would be. I want to support them. I support many others like them who get little press because they don’t go around attention-grabbing, grandstanding about grand political theories; eighty-four women received congratulations and articles of support from me, including the Squad. They’re Millennial Democrats, after all, same as me. It is natural that I would want to support them. And yet, their entanglements with socialism, Bernie Sanders, and their own unfortunate tendency to flap off at the gums whenever it suits them make that impossible.
It’s a real nightmare, and no mistake; the only thing in this whole entire shebang that I have really had to think about very much. It presents a philosophical problem, an actual problem, and a strategical problem. Plus plenty of personnel problems. But the big problem, the deal-breaker problem, is with these guys, the Justice Democrats, like Cenk Uygur down there in the picture, and their sister organization the Democratic Socialists of America, not to be confused with Nordic social democracy no matter how many times they try to trump it up.
This is close to the heart of the problem and is good to talk about in heading toward the root of the rot. We cannot fully accept AOC and the other Squad members without fully embracing their often-insane policies, statements, and socialistic views. All of them are close to the heart of the problem, which is good to talk about in heading toward the root of the rot. This is not arbitrary, nor do we have anything less than the most compelling reasons for crafting our policy
The campaign of Bernie Sanders was even more infested with insincere infiltrators and acidic agents than Trump’s was. In fact, his campaign manager, Tad Devine, was the first witness called to testify at the trial of Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Turns out they’d been working together for a dozen years, fixing elections at Putin’s behest in Ukraine. Along with Rick Gates, that makes three major strategists involved in opposing Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency who had been doing Putin’s bidding in this regard for more than a decade.
This is a shame because they are adding relevant and important topics into the national dialogue. They are also women of color who got elected on the tide of the Blue Wave in the Year of the Democratic Woman, which we wrote about every day for months. And even when Ilhan Omar shot her mouth off in the most insensitive manner (referring to 9/11, the greatest tragedy in our country’s history, as ‘something’ people did, without a single word spoken in condemnation of Islamic terrorism, which is every bit as despicable and criminal as white nationalist terrorism), we stood with her because Trump was shooting off his mouth so bad we were afraid some ‘lone gunman’ would kill her. That’s the exact truth, and God forgive this country that it should be so.
That is why I’m writing this, even now, to explain why I won’t support her to half my team while explaining to the other half why I won’t join in to crush her.
This is not a half-measure, either. It’s just assorting elements and factors and weighing them. There’s a lot of danger being presented to those girls, and while they may feel exhilarated and invulnerable now, there’s a lot of crazy people out there. Making them front line targets like this is a pretty cold-blooded strategy, even if it does work. But that didn’t much seem to bother the so-called “Democratic” socialists who made them, and who are guiding their hands as they craft policy going forward. Heedless and reckless, and more work for us. One disaster after the next.
Surely, you say, this must be a small price to pay for such energetic new young allies- would that it were true! That would indeed be the case if they didn’t want to spend all their time attacking Democrats. AOC’s first act after getting elected was to go start a protest in Nancy Pelosi’s office- across the nation from them, on the taxpayer’s expense- over climate change which we were doing anyway. She seemed disappointed when she found that out, as if she’d really been looking forward to a good fight-with her own people, during the Trump era.
That is the kind of trouble we have had with the Squad, ever since the Blue Wave hit home hard last November and even before. They want to sit on the sidelines, voting with the Republicans unless we will insanely join them on calling for the abolition of ICE. Ocasio-Cortez did that first when the government needed to be reopened. She said she had made a ‘tough, nuanced call’. ICE funding wasn’t even on the bill! No one had a clue what she was talking about, and that was bad enough. So were dozens of other times she’s shot off her mouth, like when she went on Firing Line and talked about the Israeli “occupation of Palestine (sigh).
But then when it came time to vote on whether or not little children on our southern border, the ones locked in DOG CAGES, ought to receive basic amenities like soap and toothpaste, the socialists stood against us in a bloc and voted no, I was so disgusted I could barely speak for days.
This is how it’s gone for nearly four years now; we try to build something, like a more accurate public portrayal of Democratic sanity and they undermine and destroy it for no reason at all. Now we can’t even come together on little kids being treated not like animals.
We have been stabbed in the back until there’s no more room for fresh scars by the people who promoted and created the Squad in the first place. That means organizations like the Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, and the Democratic Socialists of America. Each is owned and operated by radical left extremists who hated Hillary Clinton worse than Trump and all but said so every day, as loud as they could. We are not going to forget that, over here. Count on it.
I will never forget.
Ocasio-Cortez got her start in politics working on the Bernie Sanders campaign. All her top strategists were previously his. They were underestimated by Crowley, he got slammed; maybe he had gotten complacent and his time was meant to be over, that’s what they’re saying, but when you’re talking about the seats of high power in the world? The United States Congress? I will take decades of experience and a bad judgment call born of inertia over a bartender socialist who worked for Bernie Sanders, any day of the week, month, or year. I say we got the worst deal imaginable, and the Squad had better own up to that fact and do something to change things drastically, while they still can.
These are the Bernie or Bust believers who rioted in the streets of Philadelphia, without a single regard for ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’ as Paul Simon played it outside. That is the problem. Their rioting and nonsense made all this possible. It was done on purpose, and it was done for a cause. That cause is to replace Democrats by taking them out from below. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was discovered and created by these people, savvily rabid promoters, for this purpose and this alone. She was used as a poisoned dart to get rid of Joe Crowley, one of the best Democrats we had in the House of Representatives, and she continues to allow herself to be employed for this terrible purpose.
So while we welcomed her arrival on the scene- we wrote her a congratulatory article, along with some good advice- it’s been a risky bet from the get-go. AOC’s presence thus far has caused more trouble than it’s worth. We look forward eagerly to a day where this statement can be recanted- but when that day is coming, who can say?
Whether this trouble has been done at her behest or in her name really doesn’t matter. So long as she’s got her name in their roster, so long as they’ve got the unnecessary and random “Justice” on their scrolling marquees and business cards, so long as she is advocating for this repugnant new hybrid system of state called “democratic” or corporate socialism but is really just state capitalism like in China, we are never going to get to a point where we can take the Squad in as we might like to.
This could change, of course. It wouldn’t really take much, either. Tell all your people to quit acting like lunatics and make sure they’re registered to vote Democratic. We genuinely would like nothing better than to see the Squad mend their wicked ways, God knows we need the help. But it’s help we can’t accept if they won’t quit acting up.
No one candidate or set of candidates can ever be worth letting either yourself or your Party become polluted, a vector for the plague that is socialism. That will destroy us for 2020 and maybe leave us flat on our backs forever afterward if democracy really does collapse all the way here. We’re not living in a full democracy now, according to the World Freedom Index, and haven’t been since 2016. If we want to see our way of life recover, we had really better come together now.
Going forward, it’s going to be more and more important that we’ve got a solution to the problem posed by the Squad. It just keeps coming up, so we’ve got to have a clear answer. So here it is.
We support them as people, as millennials, and as Democrats. When it comes to their socialistic nonsense and their ravening friends, however, it should be separated from them neatly, packaged like a diaper, and thrown down a well so deep it has no bottom. The political moderate will feel the truth in this approach.
We have to draw a clear line between sticking up for them as human beings when attacked by a cowardly bully and accepting their poisoned bait, a type of ideological Trojan Horse of a time bomb, too deep in the fold to avoid lethal damage should it go off. The stakes are too high for all this messing around. Hopefully they see that before it’s too late.
In the end, you’ve got to take one day at a time, resolve to be fair, and make the best of it. The Squad is who and what they are, and we’ll have to make room for them anyway, so we might as well at least let them know there’s a spot for them on our bench, waiting, one that would be bigger had they themselves not been so impetuous and quick to blow atomic with their mouths.
I just hope I am not doing wrong myself in refusing to throw any boots into the stomping. Socialism!! Socialism, no less. Never ever shall I see the day. You Squad, you! Stop landing this crap on us!
Although even Socrates has argued strongly for the State taking a benevolent stance toward gadflies, this cannot be expected to apply to the African tsetse fly which carries sleeping sickness. You’ll end up looking like Bernie Sanders if you get a bad enough case of that stuff.
When I read that Tulsi Gabbard, of all people, had reviled her fellow 2020 presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as someone “Not Qualified” to be President of the United States of America, I was disgusted so thoroughly that I was all but beside myself. I couldn’t believe it. You have got to be kidding me. Who are you, Tulsi Gabbard, monstrous traitor and foreign cutout that you *allegedly* are, to use the term “Not Qualified” as regards a career prosecutor and elected Senator like Harris? This is completely unacceptable.
Senator Harris, we are here for you. We’re not endorsing you-or anybody else- yet, but we’re here for you. You are a Democrat.
Here at Millennial Democrats, we haven’t issued an endorsement yet, and we don’t intend to, not for a while. The reason why is the wealth of riches we have in these candidates. All of them are so vastly superior to Trump or Bernie that even to compare them is facile. Our concern is making it unified through what promises to be a chaotic primary. Democratic
We have been there for all of them, too, not to mention every other Democrat. We’ve even stood up for Ilhan Omar and praised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she’s done something right, even though they’re socialists. The only reason we ever have for going after another Democrat is being convinced that they’re anything but. That’s Tulsi for you. Back in 2017, we wrote that “Tulsi Gabbard has something for everyone, and all of it is dishonest“.
Well, here’s another lie she’s told. Kamala Harris is completely qualified to hold the office of President, and much more qualified than some, like her or Bernie Sanders. I remember when Bernie said the same thing about Hillary Clinton. Way to display your internalized sexism; not a big surprise considering your father was anti-gay extremist Mike Gabbard.
Researching the tangled tale of Tulsi Gabbard was really somewhat disturbing. Her situation is one of the clearest links we have to the ongoing problem of the far left and the far right converging. Her family hijacked Hawaii’s Democratic Party and runs it using Republican policies. Hardly any of her supporters have anything to do with us. According to one list of major contributors to the Tulsi Gabbard campaign, published by DailyKos in 2012, Democratic donors were actually exceptions on this list. Many of these people have not donated to campaigns other than Mike Gabbard’s Congressional campaign, or Richard Reed’s Senate campaign, both as Republicans. Reed’s Senate campaign was allegedly connected to both the Gabbards’ and to Butler’s religious group.
This all happened because Hawaii’s people and atmosphere are so liberal. It’s a one-party state; no Republican has any hope at all to get elected there. A serious attempt has not been made in years. But the last time someone gave it the old college try, it was Tulsi’s good old Dad.
The Democratic Party has had a long reign in Hawaii. Some of it comes from the popularity of the labor movement there in the 20th century, and the efforts of the Hawaii Democratic Party to push for greater inclusivity of the electoral base have traditionally been venerated. These factors have combined to earn Democrats near-complete control of the state legislature. But such an extended period of dominance has been resulting in increased voter apathy and increased factionalism within the Democratic Party of Hawaii.
This apathy is what led Mike Gabbard to try and challenge Democratic incumbent Ed Case in 2004. The elder Gabbard, known for his virulent anti-gay crusade in the 1990s, was attempting to overturn the status quo and win as a Republican the race to represent Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. At that time, a reporter for Honolulu Magazine requested an interview on her ties to the Chris Butler cult, her family’s religion, a bizarre offshoot of the Hare Krishnas.
Tulsi got nice and mad, and listen to what she said.
“I smell a skunk,” she emailed back. “It’s clear to me that you’re acting as a conduit for … homosexual extremist supporters of Ed Case!”
We can see this vicious, right-wingesque swipe at Harris is no isolated incident, but part of a long-running pattern. She’s carrying on the legacy of her father, like any dutiful daughter, and his values were utterly conservative, far enough to the right to border on libertarianism.
Libertarianism is a political philosophy that advocates for laissez-faire economic policies in a sense so extreme they believe government should be all but eliminated. It is an offshoot of the abominably racist John Birch Society, which was founded by a Ku Klux Klan member named Fred Koch. He was the father of the infamous Koch Brothers of Koch Industries, Charles and David-the founders of a third party, the Libertarian Party, which is basically a smooth-talking version of the rabid John Birch party line. David was to have been Vice-President if they pulled it off when they first ran in 1980. He spent two million dollars of his own money making the attempt but got crushed.
But they didn’t give up. They’ve been corralling their resources patiently ever since.
The libertarian movement is an interesting case. They have some huge billionaires working with them, like Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News. It’s supposed to be as far right as it gets. So why are so many figures from the radical left caught up with them?
On the Issues, a non-partisan informational website that rates and categorizes lawmakers and candidates describes Tulsi Gabbard as a “Libertarian-Leaning Progressive” based on her voting record.
A similar organization, Progressive Punch.org, provides a searchable database of Congressional voting records, from the perspective of the far left. They gave Bernie Sanders an A, for his lifetime support of progressive causes. Tulsi Gabbard got an F. Basic logic would suggest they would stand in diametric opposition to one another.
Why do they have all the same supporters, then?
One angry supporter of Bernie Sanders wrote the following nonsense on 7/23/17, on a thread discovered on Facebook. Note his dual enthusiasm for both Bernie and Tulsi. and his loathing for moderate Democrats. “No REAL progressive is gonna vote for more of the Clinton style, corporate special interest, Big Bank donor loving, false progressive garbage. Yet…here are the Democrats showing us early on that they haven’t changed. Ready for a repeat of 2016? Personally…I will work to expose and destroy the hopes of any candidate that the DNC tries to ram down our throats again by using Super Delegates and closed Primaries…and any candidate who remained silent against the DNC’s attack on our Democracy by rigging the election against Bernie Sanders. #Sanders/Gabbard2020 #Gabbard/Turner2020 This same man later went on to beg and plead for unity among the former supporters of Sanders- so that they will have greater success in attacking not Republicans, but Democrats. Mentioned at the spearhead of this assault on their fellows in the left, is always one name- Tulsi Gabbard.
Her record shows again and again that is not a Democrat in anything but name, even though so-called progressives love her. She managed to hoodwink Bernie supporters into thinking she is one of them. By resigning from the DNC at the time Bernie or Bust rioted during HRC’s nomination and since has come to embody misguided attacks by so-called progressives on the so-called liberal elite. In point of fact, however, the evidence indicates quite otherwise. Tulsi Gabbard does not vote like a progressive darling. She’s a surfer, which seems to be more important than her voting record. What a mess. This person would be the biggest con in the world if she wasn’t so incompetent. Ever heard her speak? Better than sleeping pills. Snore.
Her voting record, world view, and connections resemble much more closely a resume, tailor-made to be both barely acceptable to the leaders of the Democratic Party, and a perfect Libertarian plant.
Since the 2016 disaster, people worldwide have been paying more attention to world events- which have been pretty awful. Great Britain just got a far-right prime minister, Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil is stomping up and down on human rights, and Marine Le Pen of France, who is blatantly Putin-financed, is leading Emmanuel Macron in the polls. Meanwhile, far-left figures like Sanders and parties like Germany’s pro-Putin Die Linke vote on behalf of Russian interests all over Europe. All this has helped a public awareness begin growing toward a reoccurring trend, one reshaping the entire scale of the political spectrum.
The left and the right are becoming the same entity.
This is far from new. History has played this drama out a great many times. The two have often historically converged when a common friend or foe suits both of their needs, and have proven capable of working in effective concert even though they’re involved for different reasons. Lenin’s doctrines specifically advocated for Communists using this technique, and these days they’ve been doing it so long they’ve started to resemble each other. New anti-democracy hybrid systems of totalitarianism may call themselves what they like, of course, be it corporate socialism or state-run capitalism. But in terms of policy and temperament, they are exactly the same.
This is why the monopolists are trying so hard to combine the far-right and far-left. They’re stirring up chaos until they see the ladder Petyr Baelish spoke of in Game of Thrones manifest, and then they use it. Nothing too complicated, but they’ve got a lot of ways to get it done. It’s almost like a game of three-card monte; its complexity lies within its simplicity. The monopolists are going to try and use that ladder to guide us off the path of freedom and democracy so that guys like the Kochs can run everything without any governmental restraint at all. That was why libertarianism was conceived of, and although it didn’t catch on right away, it’s got a few heads full of steam now. We are in the middle of watching nothing less than a full-fledged attempt at a Libertarian revival, aimed at the destruction of the newer and more cultured America we enjoyed under Bill Clinton and Obama.
When Trump took office, one of the first things he did was to yank us out of the Paris Accord so big business could get back to work mucking up the lakes and rivers again. That item had been high on the Koch agenda for years. When Scott Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general who had spent his whole career fighting the EPA, was chosen by Trump as the agency’s new head, all concerned had no trouble with interpreting that move. He’d been brought in to gradually dismantle it. Let’s return to the days of starting Lake Erie on fire, what a neat idea, dear boy have a cigar.
It seems clear that clean water for Flint, Michigan is about as likely as the same for Japan’s nuclear power plant post-tsunami. It just isn’t a priority to monopolists.
They want to bring things back to the old way, graft and corruption, and big bosses. Stuff we take for granted, like minimum wages and the eight-hour workday would be gone in a terrible flash. Ever read Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle? Great book, but don’t read it on an empty stomach. Work-life was nightmarish for the American workingman back then. That’s what it would be like with no government that could hold big business accountable. That’s why Democrats have to dedicate their lives every single generation to fighting back this growing darkness.
It is also why the far left is getting to be such a tremendous problem. They fight us at every turn for no reason, but very rarely the Republicans. The Squad of freshmen Representatives like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is comprised of all socialists who voted against caged children getting soap in a bloc just a few short weeks ago. Likewise, Trump is gaining all sorts of mileage by attacking them. Their ability to repulse middle America, in particular, is all but a red flag in the eyes of frenzied bulls. Their radical views are his biggest asset in 2020.
The punk rock anarchist types are clueless about getting taken in. Their protests are undermining their entire value systems, not to mention their future right to stay healthy. They think it’s going to all be dancing through Utopia- the Greek word for “nowhere”. My guess is it would be more like that movie “The Purge”. Without real Democrats to protect them, people too different to blend in would be little more than easy prey. To whose benefit does that end up working for? The monopolists, of course! They’re like a hydra, striking at a million places at once. They’ve got all the money. That’s why they’re able to co-opt so many people in either party- like Tulsi Gabbard.
On the Issues, a non-partisan informational website that rates and categorizes lawmakers and candidates describes Gabbard as a “Libertarian-Leaning Progressive” based on her voting record.
Monopolist sects of the global elite are linking up transnationally and behind the scenes in a previously unheard-of level of cooperation and making their presences known through elected proxies like Tulsi Gabbard.
To pull it off, they’ve got to use a combination of theatrics and money to manipulate the national dialectic, hoping they can eventually fool the people into demanding a third party, likely to be similar to the Viktor Orban’s Hungary “managed democracy” hybrid systems that are taking form everywhere across the world.
Two-thirds of the world’s states are now no longer democracies, including the United States. according to non-partisan organization the World Freedom Index, and that is very dangerous to everyone. The only thing still holding this neo-fascist tide from sweeping over the whole world like wildfire is the strength even of American democracy’s memory. That’s why they are trying to attack it. The only guardians of it are the centrists of the Democratic Party, which is why all this is happening. Their true enemies are not socialists. They are the liberals.
They are us, Democrats.
This is the likely explanation for why she thought it a good idea to savage one of her fellow Democrats, Kamala Harris, with such a mean and rude assault on her qualifications. It adds acrimony and stress to our already taxed body politic. She’s always doing something to hurt our party. They’ve been talking about running her to hamstring us for years.
Our opinion is that it was more than a mean streak that caused her to resign as DNC junior chairman at the worst possible time for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party in general. Many different factors were involved, most notably The Wikileaks dump of hacked data from the DNC’s email servers had just happened, and the Bernie or Bust lunatics were rioting in the streets of Philadelphia, over illegally acquired and hacked emails proving that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resented Bernie’s inability to file out basic FEC forms correctly.
Tulsi said she was resigning in disgust, a double whammy for her. Not only did she get to damage her fellow Democrats, she gained millions of hardcore Bernie or Busters in the process. They think she’s one of them, even though more reputable leftist publications like Jacobin Magazine have also tried convincing them repeatedly. One article of theirs I would was titled “Tulsi Gabbard Is Not Your Friend.” They had no more success than we have.
It’s not that often that the socialists and I can come together on anything, but so far as Tulsi goes we’re riding in the same boxcar.
We have got her back- just as we’ve got Joe Biden‘s, or Beto O’Rourke‘s, or Al Franken‘s. We’ll stand for any of them other than Tulsi and the Bern, two disingenuous libertarians only in the race to sow dissent and chaos. That sort has always hated people like Kamala Harris because she’s strong and black and female. They did the same thing to Joy Reid, whose defense we also took the torch for. Remember this, Bernie Bots?
We do. And we will never, ever forget it. Progressives, lol. If this is progress, give me the Stone Age back.
According to the lawsuit, filed by lawyers representing Gabbard’s campaign Tulsi Now Inc., Google suspended the Gabbard campaign’s advertising account for several hours during the first Democratic debate. “On June 28, millions of Americans asked Google about Tulsi Gabbard,” the mournful wording went, “and Tulsi sought to answer them. But Google silenced her.”
In response, Google says “automated systems that flag unusual activity on all advertiser accounts — including large spending changes” were to blame for the suspension of Gabbard’s account. Google says their automated systems aim to “prevent fraud and protect our customers.”
“In this case, our system triggered a suspension and the account was reinstated shortly thereafter,” said Google spokeswoman Riva Sciuto. “We are proud to offer ad products that help campaigns connect directly with voters, and we do so without bias toward any party or political ideology.”
Now, who to believe? Analytical tools on Twitter have shown tens of thousands of fake accounts swarming on her handle. This is her M.O. Check out that picture. Every little dot represents another one. It looks like a grand fireworks finale.
This is all a result of the Citizens United ruling allowing the use of dark money in politics. Now private empires like the ones put together by the infamous Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries can spend nine-tenths of a billion dollars to hoodwink and influence us.
The thing about their strategy is, it’s completely common sense. What would you do, if it was your billion dollars, and your goal is to control the nation’s data flow- which is to say, its people? Would you really only support one side, and not try to influence the other? Did not Lenin say, The best way to control the opposition is to lead it yourself? It’s a football strategy, really; pretty basic stuff. They’re playing both the ends against the middle.
This is the libertarian way. Ask Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire owner of Fox News. Or his friend, Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart, and many others too. Sheldon Adelson, Robert Mercer. Richard Mellon Scaife, the mean alcoholic billionaire who funded the Arkansas Project to destroy Bill Clinton’s life for some random reason, they all do this and they’ll continue to as long as it works. It’s a strategy.
That’s what I’d do.
I’ve found myself thinking a lot about the Koch brothers recently, ever since I happened to read that David was unexpectedly, and after all these years, pushed out by his older brother, Charles, notorious eminence grise of the American political scene. It seemed surprising to me, not something I’d expected in any way. These guys should have it all right now. The Tea Party destabilized the Republican Party, and made it ripe for the capture of Trump. Now there’s a radical faction in the Democratic Party, too, an insurgent campaign against the center.
A New Republic article from 2014 called “GOP Death Watch: The Final Days of the Republican Party” pointed out that the big advantage the Democrats had back then was that our radicals had no part in our power structure (radicals should never have any power), whereas the Republican Tea Party was making it too difficult for the old guard, the John McCain style Republicans, to keep any order or unity among themselves.
They were all the way up in Bernie, even his campaign manager Tad Devine. He was Paul Manafort’s lead attache in Ukraine back during the Orange Revolution, and he was the first witness called at Paul Manafort’s trial because he worked for Manafort in Ukraine, as did Rick Gates, the first witness to crack to Robert Mueller.
Catch that. Three of the top strategists opposing Hillary Clinton in 2016 had been doing Vladimir Putin’s bidding in this capacity for longer than a decade.
How much more obvious can you get? It goes without saying, of course, that Putin is the biggest libertarian of them all. He is the head, the rest are the tentacles. Julian Assange of Wikileaks, who dumped the DNC emails, is a libertarian, too. They’re all in on it together! It’s on the front page of every newspaper, every day. Most Americans know this stuff instinctively, deep down in their hearts, along with something else:
Somehow, somewhere, their plans went horribly astray.
The feeling I’m getting from the world right now is that of great and utter tension. It does not have the feeling of being scripted anymore. It’s like it’s taken on a life of its own like an avalanche. They’ve lost control, and only Putin’s got the gambler’s nerve to enjoy it. He knows full well how little of Russia truly takes place under his will or even say-so. They know to shut up and go about their business in that part of the world; no one can take that away from them. Their muteness speaks for all of humanity on this one.
Tulsi Gabbard is not someone to trust, in our opinion. She’s just in it to deal out some cheap shots, leave some permanent, rankling schisms behind her, and run away chortling to plan out her next Tuggle Snuggle, horrid black widow that she is. Truly, she is a worthy successor hamstringer to her master the Bern. Her trolls are uglier than his, and I never thought I’d say that about anyone.
Going forward, it’s important for us to be especially mindful about who we support, and who we don’t support. Real Democrats are loyal and they know how to work with a team. They stay in the sane center, they pay heed to reality and the requirements of the position, and they don’t throw away their advantages by getting hasty. They corral resources, shore up trenches, dig their foxholes deeply and well- and above all, keep their own backyards clean of libertarian fakirs like the Tuggler. Gabbard, you are the one who is unqualified. If you want to throw reviles around, look in the mirror. You’ll see trouble with a surfboard gazing back at you.
The mess on our southern borders continues to get worse by the day, and nobody has quite known what to do. It came as a big relief to everyone genuinely concerned about the fate of our Southern American neighbors, who have come to us for help, that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has passed a bill to give these people some relief.
The House voted 230 to 195, mostly down party lines late Tuesday night to approve a $4.5 billion measure to send humanitarian relief to the southern border, addressing concerns about conditions of detention centers where migrant children are being held.
This whole time we have barely heard or seen a thing. Many have feared the worst. Finally CNN got to go inside, and there’s no doubt that it was about time, but still, no one knows for sure what they’re up to; about all we do know is it doesn’t involve mass graves. We know they’re not ordering mass shootings, but other than that there is very little positive to say.
The following observations were made by Clara Long and Nicole Austin-Hillery, the journalists assigned to the story’s coverage by CNN, but they spoke for us all when they published them.
We have been speaking out urgently, since then, about the devastating and abusive circumstances we’ve found. The Trump administration claims it needs even more detention facilities to address the issue, but policy makers and the public should not be fooled into believing this is the answer.
The situation we found is unacceptable. US Border Patrol is holding many children, including some who are much too young to take care of themselves, in jail-like border facilities for weeks at a time without contact with family members, regular access to showers, clean clothes, toothbrushes, or proper beds. Many are sick. Many, including children as young as 2 or 3, have been separated from adult caretakers without any provisions for their care besides the unrelated older children also being held in detention.
These meathook findings leave little room for equivocation and help to shed critical light on a basic fact of critical importance.
We are dealing with the totally awful here, combined with more than a dash of the hideously absurd, although all of us are used to that by now. It’s Trump, after all.
Among other things, we had to actually have a vote about whether or not these little kids should be able to get soap and toothpaste. In the world’s richest country. What an insult to the history of the world’s remaining superpower.
Republicans are boasting about the worst thing they’ve done since Iraq, but even they and Trump seem mostly miserable. They’re not handling this situation well, but they didn’t create it, either. It’s a problem for us all at this point and a highly complex one. It should be noted that the Senate passed relief legislature as well, so that’s good.
Certainly, medieval solutions such as walls are a laughable measure. These people are coming here because our laws allow them to. Unless that changes, the wall would be nothing but a pointless and ugly disaster. They’re coming in through legal ports anyway. It’s almost like the right is starting to see that a wall’s not going to stop legal asylum seekers, but of course, that is probably a pipe dream. Bipartisan is practically a curse word to the modern right wing Party.
Democrats, as usual, are desperately trying to clean up what we can and keep it from getting any worse. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was the one who put this relief bill together, to the surprise of absolutely no one, and her ability to keep her caucus in order has allowed us to keep things up and running. We even got some Republican votes.
Only one group of people in all of this wide nation’s Democratic Party stood in a bloc to oppose a bill that should have been a no-brainer for any progressive.
How unbelievable is that? This is Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar we’re talking about here. Omar’s father was a Somalian cab driver who was able to get in here only at the cost of great difficulty, and now she is a famous Representative with an important voice to be heard in the Democratic Party. She blew it badly here. We gave her a chance before, and wrote “#WeStandWithIlhan-This Time.”
No way are we sticking up for her now. Not on your life.
At least the moderate core of the Party remains decent. I don’t have a thing to say for the rest. I guess Ilhan Omar can’t be outright proven a terrorist, so there’s that. But she sure does have some awful friends, and by this I mean Bernie Sanders, who she just co-authored a bill with, just as much as the Council of American-Islamic Relations. They’ve been right here to undermine us whenever it has counted all along, and look what it could have led to this time! The sheer physical revulsion I feel towards that vote they made is indescribable. Let no one say that we have not reached out; we have. Over and over again. But they just don’t share our values.
Regretting the need to keep this article about the kids and not the endless evils of the socialists, it’s disappointing from anyone to vote for refusing soap to caged immigrant children. Why was it not possible for Democrats of all stripes to come together and pressure Trump into buying these kids some soap and toothpaste? The guy does not mind at all putting on these displays of pettiness, unreal for the richest country in the world, but we do!
So much for Giving me your tired and poor. Our citizens are mostly the types of people who bought into all that Statue of Liberty stuff about the “huddled masses yearning to break free”. They opened up a Japanese internment camp for one particularly lucky huddled mass. I hate the term “masses” anyway and find it smarmily arrogant and superior. Those are people in there, not chewed and processed cud.
That last is a rather dehumanizing metaphor, which brings us to our next troubling observation. These people are not being discussed in the language of respect we should use when we hear of the plight of other humans, wherever or whoever they may be. They’re being referred to as pests and vermin. This cannot be allowed. We’re on a slippery slope at this point.
This really is Nazi-like, and not in the same overdramatic and irresponsible sense that Ocasio-Cortez used to compare what’s going on right now to the Holocaust. It’s in the sense of negating the basic human value possessed by every human.
Respect and kindness from our fellows ought to be a birthright, possessed by all members of our species. It’s always been unequal, and that sucks enough. But now Trump and the right wing are removing it altogether. The next step really could be mass graves and the death camps, and if it does come down to that we’ll be up against it even worse than ever. We now have these four time bomb socialist candidates to deal with on top of the mountainous pile of our other challenges.
Three Republicans voted in favor of the bill, and just four Democrats opposed the vote — they were all freshmen Democrats, and arguably the highest profile freshmen from the 116th Congress: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley. All four said earlier in the week they would vote against the bill due to its funding of Immigration and Customs (ICE), which they have called for to be abolished.
There they are! The usual suspects, on again about the abolishing of ICE. Is this really the time? Make a speech or something, if you want to make a meaningless gesture. This is the same thing they pulled when Ocasio-Cortez refused to vote to help us re-open the government.
Oh, and those pictures of her showing up like a dynamo on the border today like some kind of a Terminatrix? They weren’t even recent! The shame of it all!
How in God’s holy name are we going to get those kids out of those cages, if we can’t even come together on giving them toothpaste? There’s no end to the outrage we ought to feel! It’s like living in a Nazi cartoon! If only we weren’t so beat up and numb already, from the previous three years of traumas! And let NO one forget, not a single bit of any of it could have been possible except with the help of Bernie Sanders!
That is why people now are getting murdered down there wholesale, in many cases by predator Americans who have gone there to act out their violent fantasies.
Removing from the German public their perception of their Jewish neighbors as humans like themselves proved invaluable to the Nazis when they locked down all of Europe and began to hunt them down and kill them off. It needs to be clearly noted that we’re far from saying they’re doing anything like what the Nazis were doing- yet.
We do not wish at all to trivialize the Holocaust, which dwarfed in proportion by far any other human tragedy. AOC made a big mistake there. She then made it obvious that she’s anti-Israel completely by refusing a visit to Auschwitz with a number of survivors, another big mistake. But just because she’s shrill and hysterical doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a wildly overstated point. The longer this goes on, the more vicious Trump will get, and we all know how he looks up to that savage lot. There’s no telling where it all might end.
Sincere people of all political persuasions should be able to get that we need to take care of children. The fact that we can’t just says it all about the state of the nation today. One thing is for sure, and one alone. The radicals are not helping on either side. The Democrats are the only ones who can, so we need to support each other now more than ever. All old grudges should be piled up like fall leaves and lit afire. The stakes are too high.
Going forward, the plan is clear. We have got to do what it takes to link hands with our people down there on the southern border, and we’ve got to do it now. We want you to give us those kids back, Trump, and a rage is growing in us because you won’t. The Point of No Return is now on your horizon. Turn back now, and you may yet reach the shore. History will revile you anyway, there’s no getting around that anymore, but only as Mussolini, not as Hitler. Take it or leave it.
And give those bars of soap to those dog-caged children!
