Internal survey membership data gauged by the Democratic Socialists of America, a leftist organizing group that supported Bernie Sanders for President, reveals that almost a third of the organization’s members make more than $100,000 a year.
The group’s 2017 membership survey response, cited by leftist commentator Brianna Last, reveals that 29% of the group’s members describe their income as being above $100k. The group’s membership is overwhelmingly coastal and metropolitan, and only 6% of DSA members are union members- well below the national figure of 10% union membership among the American public.
Annual wage and earning data for the general American public reveals a far lower figure- with just over 9% of Americans making more than $100k.
The group appears broadly unrepresentative of the American working class, a contradiction for any socialist organizing group that identifies its target demographic as working people. DSA conferences have proven to be rife with politically correct and neoliberal gender and identity politics, yet another defining political characteristic of the political and media elite.
The DSA’s membership appears to be greatly defined by wealthy, college-educated millennials, who have a tenuous connection to working Americans such as service and blue-collar workers.
The timeless stereotype of a ‘champaign socialist-‘ one who merely dislikes the rich, while largely disregarding the lifestyles and cultures of the working class they claim to represent- seems to be more than appropriate.
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
