SORRY BERNIE SANDERS, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND THE LEFT, AMERICA IS A CAPITALIST NATION …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Sorry Bernie Sanders and the new darling of the Democrat party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Democrat party finds itself moving farther and farther to the left and socialism as an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer a free market economic system. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez previously stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “represents the future of our party.” Really, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, Ocasio-Cortez, is the future of the Democrats in a country that prefers free markets? Democrats are about to drive off the political cliff. If any of you actually thought or think self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has a chance of being elected, you are delusional. The idea that Democrats are purposely attaching themselves to socialism is amazing.
In New York, a Democratic Socialist candidate just unseated a near-20-year veteran in one of the state’s Democratic congressional primaries, and she contends she represents the Democratic Party’s future. But voters reject socialism in no uncertain terms.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Blue wave, huh?
Bernie Sanders Says, “Our Socialist Ideas are Winning” … And Sanders Also Said, “Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party”
I GUESS SOCIALIST HAVE THEIR OWN DEFINITION OF WINNING …
Hmm, Donald Trump is President, their is a Republican controlled House Republican controlled Senate, the economy is booming once Trump was elected and allowed capitalist principles to take over and some how self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders says his socialist ideas are winning. Two takes from Bernie’s interview with Chris Cuomo, one is a total joke, but the others should frighten old time Democrats.
When Cuome asked, “Why aren’t you doing better, You had a lot of guys lose. I don’t think you’re even at 500.” The socialist Sanders actually had the audacity to say, “Chris, that is in all due respect not an intelligent way to look at it.” HUH? So actually winning a political election isn’t an intelligent way of gauging whether you are winning. Alrighty then. I guess Bernie thinks participation trophies are winning.
However, this is the comment that should push all blue collar, hard working middle class Democrats to vote Republican and Trump … “Do you think that — you know a little bit about politics. Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party.” Attention blue collar Democrats, this dude and progressives want to transform the Democrat party to the Socialist party.

CUOMO: “All right. One more beat on the political state of play and then policy. I did a lot of homework for you tonight, senator. On politics you said part of the remedy is new blood, new candidates. A great book about this. Handbook for revolution. You know, with a small ‘R.’ How you take back control of the democracy. Your candidates are not doing great. What did you get wrong?”
SANDERS: “Not — not true. Look, Chris. Do you think that — you know a little bit about politics. Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party, take on big money, take on the establishment? The truth of the matter is what we have been focusing on is grassroots activism and doing extremely well. We have been —”
CUOMO: “Why aren’t the candidates winning more?”
SANDERS: “Oh, my God, they’re winning all over the country.”
CUOMO: “You had a lot of guys lose. I don’t think you’re even at 500.”
SANDERS: “Chris, that is in all due respect not an intelligent way to look at it. I can be at 100% if I keep — supported candidates who had all the money and the power and the poll. We are trying to support candidates who are fighting for working people and by the way where we are winning hands down is that our Progressive agenda which is as you will remember is considered to be fringe and extreme, that’s kind of mainstream now. Raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks a hour. Making public colleges and universities tuition free. Rebuilding the infrastructure.”
SANDERS: “Our ideas on winning and at the grassroots level more and more people are getting involved.”
Of course one might ask the Socialist Sanders why he isn’t supporting or endorsing his own son in his Congressional race in New Hampshire.
JUST LIKE A SOCIALIST … PROPOSES IGNORANT SOCIALIST JOBS PROGRAM WHEN 14 STATES HAVE RECORDED RECORD ALL-TIME LOW UNEMPLOYMENT RATES …
As reported at The Hill, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of The People’s Republic of Vermont has announced a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one.” UNREAL, just how would we pay for this socialist program? NOW? Jobs under the Trump administration are being created hand over fist. Capitalism seems to be working just fine. Fourteen states have recorded record low unemployment in the past year which begs the question, why would individuals need the government for a job, except to be kept dependent? If Americans want to work, they just need apply. But what else would one expect from a socialist but making individuals dependent upon government.
The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American.
Sanders’s office has yet to release the details of the plan’s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
The Vermont senator joins two other possible 2020 contenders, Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who have also expressed support for similar proposals in recent weeks.
“The goal is to eliminate working poverty and involuntary unemployment altogether,” Darrick Hamilton, an economist at The New School, told the Post.
Maybe Bernie and his socialist friends might want to take a look at the failed Finland experiment … Finland’s basic income trial falls flat. This is what socialism looks like, failure.
The Finnish government has decided not to expand a limited trial in paying people a basic income, which has drawn much international interest.
Currently 2,000 unemployed Finns are receiving a flat monthly payment of €560 (£490; $685) as basic income.
“The eagerness of the government is evaporating. They rejected extra funding [for it],” said Olli Kangas, one of the experiment’s designers.
Some see basic income as a way to get unemployed people into temporary jobs.
The argument is that, if paid universally, basic income would provide a guaranteed safety net. That would help to address insecurities associated with the “gig” economy, where workers do not have staff contracts.
Supporters say basic income would boost mobility in the labour market as people would still have an income between jobs.
Finland’s two-year pilot scheme started in January 2017, making it the first European country to test an unconditional basic income. The 2,000 participants – all unemployed – were chosen randomly.
But it will not be extended after this year, as the government is now examining other schemes for reforming the Finnish social security system.
JUST CURIOUS, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHETHER YOU WEAR A WHITE SHEET OR A BLACK MASK, YOU’RE BOTH JUST AS BAD … HOWEVER, ANTIFA MAYBE WORSE …
So this is the insanity that we deal with today. If you don’t agree with Antifa, you are a Nazi sympathizer. Really? How about a pox on both their houses. But with the thugs from Antifa that is not an option. These are the Marxists who President Donald Trump condemned from Charlottesville and took so much flack over from the LEFT, Democrats and the MSM. As usual, it turns out President Trump was correct. Finally some Democrats, alittle late to the game, are calling out Antifa for their disgusting acts of violence. Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has finally condemned Antifa after Berkeley. Better late than never I guess. Antifa is nothing more than a domestic terror group, no better than the KKK or the so-called Fascists they rail against. Watch the video below and ask yourself, who is the Fascist? Patriot Prayer’s founder, Joey Gibson found himself in the middle of Antifa hate … “A Beating in Berkeley.”
As white supremacists go, Joey Gibson makes for a lousy one. For starters, he’s half Japanese. “I don’t feel like I’m Caucasian at all,” he says. Not to be a stickler for the rules, but this kind of talk could get you sent to Master Race remedial school.
And it gets worse. The founder of Patriot Prayer—a Vancouver, Wash.-based operation that sponsors rallies and marches promoting freedom and First Amendment rights along with all-purpose unity—also spews hippie-dippie rhetoric like “moderates have to come together” and “love and peace [are] the only way to heal this country.” Joey tends to sound less like an alt-right bully boy than a conflict-resolution facilitator or a Unitarian Sunday school teacher.
For his late August “Liberty Weekend” in the Bay Area, which was to include a free speech rally in San Francisco followed by a “No to Marxism” rally in Berkeley (headed by a local “transsexual patriot”), Joey advertised that “no extremists will be allowed in. No Nazis, Communists, KKK, Antifa, white supremacists .??.??. or white nationalists.” (So much for free speech.) Likewise, the advertised docket of speakers was to include “three blacks, two Hispanics, one Asian, one Samoan, one Muslim, two women, and one white male.” If becoming a liberty movement fixture doesn’t work out for Gibson, he has a promising future as a UC Berkeley admissions officer.
Despite all this, you’d have thought from the avalanche of alarmist walk-up stories that Gibson and friends would be dancing in a “Springtime for Hitler” kick line. Donald Trump, of course, who draws frequent Hitler comparisons in some quarters, has already set nerves on edge with his nativist rhetoric, perpetually divisive style, and what’s widely perceived as his winks ’n’ nods to white nationalists. But in the wake of the recent white supremacist hoedown in Charlottesville—a cesspool of racial hatred that resulted in the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer when a Nazi fanboy drove his Dodge Challenger into her and 19 others—opportunistic leftists/Democrats have been on the prowl to paint everyone to the right of Angela Davis as a dangerous racist lunatic.
GOOD RIDDANCE …
Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has finally died at the age of 90. The hero to the Left and socialists has passed. Cubans in Miami rejoiced upon hearing of the news of the socialist dictators death and danced in the streets. This is more a symbolic death for the people who have fled Cuba as Fidel Castro stepped down some 10+ years ago. Cuba is still run by a dictator, maybe some day a U.S. President will make a real deal with Cuba that is good for the U.S. and Cuban people. Make no mistake about it, this man mercilessly killed and jailed his political enemies.
On a personal note, having known so many Cuban-Americans who’s parents had fled Castro’s tyranny and some who while trying to have their families escapade where captured and imprisoned, I can only imagine the feelings they are experiencing what they are going through.
CUBAN icon Fidel Castro died peacefully in bed aged 90 yesterday — after surviving 638 assassination bids.
The cigar-smoking revolutionary, who pushed the world to the edge of nuclear war, was damned and feted across the globe.
His enemies were last night toasting the death of a blood-soaked tyrant guilty of murdering hundreds of political opponents and oppressing his impoverished people.
Sen. Marco Rubio (FL-R) discusses the death of Fidel Castro
Castro was born on August 13, 1926, in Cuba. A lifelong Marxist, he trained as a lawyer but was jailed after attacking a barracks with brother Raul and fled to Mexico on release.
He returned alongside legendary guerilla leader Che Guevara and a rebel army to seize power in 1959. He was Prime Minister until 1976, when he became President.
He immediately ordered the executions of 582 opponents, shut independent media and herded gay people into “re-education” camps. Later, HIV-positive citizens were quarantined.
In 1962, he invited Russian nuclear missiles to be based on Cuba, just 90 miles from the hated US.
