Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America

 

Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez  in November …

As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses  Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a  Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.

She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.

Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”

And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:

It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.

Democrats Questioning Whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren Can Take on President Trump in 2020 … Win Back the Rust Belt?

CAN POCAHONTAS TAKE ON TRUMP?

From The Hill comes the following as Democrats question whether Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren can really take on President Trump in the 2020 elections. The question is, can a far-LEFT Progressive who calls for the abolitionism of ICE really win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Can a liberal Democrat elite win or even come close in a southern state? The answer is likely no on both accounts. There lies the problem for the Democrats. The problem is that the Democrat party has gone too far LEFT and is being pushed off the cliff by the likes of self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Now you have the likes of Warren, a progressive made from the same cloth as a possible challenger to Trump to change the minds of the blue collar Dems in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Hardly. In fact, Democrats might just lose the “rust belt” forever.

Elizabeth Warren

Can Elizabeth Warren win back blue-collar Democrats from President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania?

It’s a question many Democrats are pondering as Warren — one of the leading contenders for her party’s presidential nomination, if she chooses to run in 2020 — goes back and forth with the president over immigration and other issues.

Warren (D-Mass.) has shown an ability to rally and excite progressives, she’s a proven fundraiser and she has policy bona fides from her work in the Senate.

Yet there are creeping doubts among some Democrats that she’s the best candidate to take on Trump.

Some worry the former Harvard professor will have a tough time winning back the Rust Belt centrists and independents who abandoned Hillary Clinton and Democrats for Trump.

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

“I just can’t see a blue-collar, Rust Belt guy voting for her,” said one Democratic strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “I think the party needs to be realistic about that.”

Some Democrats almost certainly remain shellshocked from the last election after Trump’s surprise win. He became the first Republican to win the states of Pennsylvania and Michigan in a presidential election since 1988 and the first Republican to win Wisconsin since President Reagan in 1984.

If Democrats don’t retake those states in 2020, their chances of winning the Electoral College will fall.

Man allegedly Threatens to Chop up Rand Paul and His Family with an Ax … Arrested by U.S. Capitol Police

THE CIVIL LEFT …

As reported at the Courier Journal, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his family was allegedly threaten by a male to be chopped up with an ax. WTH!?! Sen. Paul tweeted his thanks on Monday to the U.S. Capitol Police for arresting a man who allegedly threatened to kill the Republican lawmaker and chop up his family with an ax. Although the police did not comment in an ongoing investigation, speaking at an event on Monday in Litchfield, KY, Paul said the unnamed man had called his Bowling Green office and “threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an ax.” This is not the first time that Sen. Paul has faced such threats and violence and certainly not the first time that Republicans law makers and Trump suppers have been viciously attacked because of their support of President Trump. The uncivil behavior and violence against Republicans is out of control. Are the Democrat leaders only going to denounce this after some one is seriously hurt, or worse?

A man is accused of threatening to chop up U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax.

The man has been arrested. He allegedly called in the threats to Paul’s Bowling Green office.

Paul mentioned the attack publicly at an event in Leitchfield, Kentucky, on Monday.

“Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe,” Paul said. “It’s just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this.”

Capitol Police declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.

President Trump Meets With Key Senators Ahead of His Nomination for New Supreme Court Justice

RED STATE DEMOCRAT SENATORS IN A TOUGH PLACE FOR SCOTUS VOTE …

As reported at CNN, President Donald Trump met with key senators at the White House on Thursday ahead of President Trump’s nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice.  Trump met with three red-state Senate Democrats who are all facing tough re-election fights this year in states that Trump won easily in the 2016 elections: Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. Trump won West Virginia, Indiana and North Dakota, 68.6% – 26.5%57.2% – 37.9% and 64.1% – 27.7%, respectively. These Democrat Senators are between a rock and a hard place. President Trump has already begun going to states with important Senate elections in 2018 and telling the voters he needs more GOP Senators to pass his agenda and continue to mane America great again. All three of these Senators voted in favor of President Trump’s previous SCOTUS nominee Neil M. Gorsuch. The vote is expected to be prior to the 2018 midterm elections which means if these Senators hgave any hope of winning, they will have to vote in favor of Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, or face a sure loss this November.

President Trump also met with moderate, pro-choice Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins, of Maine, as well as Chuck Grassley of Iowa. All, also voted in favor of Gorsuch. President Trump is putting his ducks in a row and making sure he has the votes. However, what type of pressure will Democrat Senate Majority Leader  Schumer put on Democrats to resist Trump’s nominee, no matter who it is?

SCOTUS

President Donald Trump met with key senators at the White House on Thursday as the administration goes into a full-court press to nominate and confirm a new Supreme Court justice before the midterm elections next fall.

Trump met with three red-state Democrats who are all facing tough re-election fights this year: Sens. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly, of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp, of North Dakota. The meetings came a day after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he’ll retire on July 31. The White House plans to nominate a new justice by July 9, CNN reported earlier Thursday.

Trump also met with Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, Susan Collins, of Maine, and Chuck Grassley, of Iowa. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump’s team also talked with a dozen other senators.

“Tonight President Trump met with Senators Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, Manchin, Donnelly, and Heitkamp to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy,” Sanders said in a statement. “The President’s team also talked with more than a dozen other Senators today as part of ongoing outreach to get views and advice from both sides of the aisle on this important nomination.”

All three Democratic senators are facing tough votes when Trump nominates a replacement for Kennedy. Their states went overwhelmingly for Trump in 2016 and a vote against the President’s nominee to the court could end up costing them votes from Trump supporters they would have needed to stay in office.

Heitkamp, who was previously praised by Trump as a “good woman” before he campaigned against her in North Dakota on Wednesday, said following the meeting that she’s still willing to hear him out on his court choice.
“Political speeches are just that, but the next day, I’m ready to get to work. As I said, if the President wants to meet with me, I’m ready to participate and advocate for North Dakota. And that’s exactly what happened today,” she said.

As Politico reports, if Trump nominates a woman to the SCOTUS, will that be a game changer? Will it really matter? Female justices can be pro-life too. President Trump said that his nominee will come from his previous released list of 25. This means that Democrats cannot whine about Trump rushing too fasy because they already had the list and would have been previously vetted when Gorsuch was chosen.

No matter whom President Donald Trump picks for the Supreme Court this time around, the nominee is almost certain to come under withering liberal attack as a grave threat to women’s rights. Several conservatives close to the White House, however, say they know just how to blunt that looming assault: Pick a woman for the job.

Of the 25 people on Trump’s public list of potential nominees, six are women. Four — 10th Circuit Judge Allison Eid, 6th Circuit Judge Joan Larsen, Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces Judge Margaret Ryan and 7th Circuit Judge Diane Sykes — were on lists released during the 2016 presidential campaign. Two — 7th Circuit Judge Amy Barrett and Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt Grant — were added last November.

Justice Anthony Kennedy handed President Donald Trump and the Republicans a major midterm gift by retiring now. Maybe he thinks this is a make up for all of the swing vote decisions that he made when he sided with the liberals on the court. Justices Kennedy’s decision to retire has put further pressure on the other US Senate races like in Missouri, Montana and Florida where Democrat Sens. Claire McCaskill, Jon Tester and Bill Nelson find themselves in tough battles. These three Democrat Senators did not vote for Gorsuch. Trump won these states in the 2016 elections by 19.1, 20.5 and 1.3 percentage points, respectively.

Make no mistake, the Democrats will be viscous and vile this time around. As if they had been civil in the past. The comical part about this is that Democrats are demanding that trump pick a comparable nominee similar to moderate Justice Kennedy. Ha, like that would have occurred had Hillary Clinton won the election.  Elections do have consequences and to all the never-Trumpers, with two SCOTUS pics in less than a year, you need to sit down and shut up at this point. With regards to Democrats demanding that Trump pick a moderate like Kennedy, do you honestly think that when Reagan picked Kennedy, he ever thought that Kennedy would side so much with the liberals on the Court?

ICE Director Thomas Homan Blasts Irresponsible Democrat Lawmakers On His Last Day (VIDEO)

THIS IS A TRUE PATRIOT …

This morning on Fox & Friends, ICE Director Thomas Homan blasted Democrat law makers and open borders advocates on his last day at the agency for their irresponsible and ignorant condemnation of ICE. Director Homan said,”he was sickened the last couple months on the attacks against ICE officers.” Homan went on the say that ICE officers should be respected for the dangerous jobs they do by the media and Democrats, not vilified.

Homan was asked for his reaction to Democrats calls for the abolishment of ICE. He said in response, “they need to educate themselves.” He stated, “ICE doesn’t not separate families on the border, that’s the job of Border Patrol.” He went on to say, “they need to get their facts straight and educate themselves that there are two different agencies.” A note to outgoing Director Homan, they don’t care. They don’t want to be educated with the facts. Because the facts would get in the way of their anti-Trump, open-borders narrative.

Homan stated, “if the American public want to know who to blame for family separation. The first people they need to blame is Congress.” He is correct, ICE is just the messenger of Congresses laws. ICE is enforcing the laws that Congress has passed and it is up to Congress to change the laws, not ICE. Congress refuses to fix it. Homan called out New York Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand by name. Once, it would have been considered a LEFT-wing loon idea to demand such a thing. Now it is a Democrat mainstream idea. What the hell happened to this party?

ICE Director Thomas Homan then laid down the challenge to the anti-ICE Democrats calling for an end to ICE. Homan vigorously stated, “as far as these Senators and Congressmen vilifying ICE and the border patrol, as you say sir, go strap a gun to your hip and stand on that line. Stand on that trail at 3am, in total darkness and wait for someone to come down that trail and meet you that you don’t know if they are an illegal alien or a heavy armed drug trafficker. Do that job, stand that post, then bad mouth that border patrol or ICE agent. Do the job!”

Where was the LEFT and Democrats calling for an end to ICE uder Obama?

Homan said President Trump’s executive order in January 2017 mandated he carry out all existing immigration laws whereas former President Barack Obama had instructed ICE to prioritize who it went after.

Even so, ICE deportation numbers during the middle of Obama’s administration in Fiscal Year 2012 — a total of 409,849 people removed — was significantly higher than Trump’s first year number of 226,119.

Democrats once again find themselves on the wrong side of the issue when it comes to illegals. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law, not the feds. Democratic Pollster Mark Penn just recently stated that 84% of Americans support turning undocumented immigrants over to authorities. That would be ICE folks.

When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

To help understand the current political debate over the children issue, a closer look shows that 82% of Republicans and 56% of voters not affiliated with either major political party feel the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. But 60% of Democrats say the government is more to blame for enforcing the law.

Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.
