The Democratic Party is eating its own and Bernie Sanders appears to be the first victim of their self-purge.
Sanders’s Democratic competition is already making the case that he would be a weaker general election candidate against President Trump because of his “democratic socialist” label.
The Vermont Senator made a big splash on the first day on the campaign trail, raising a cool $6 million.
Opponents, however, have downplayed his ability to defeat Trump.
They see his socialist label as a potential limiting factor. One senior adviser to a rival campaign opined:
“I think socialist is a word that someone who wants to beat Trump should consider carefully before embracing.”
Naturally, Sanders supporters have come to his defense.
Larry Cohen, defender Sanders’s Democrat credentials:
“He’s clearly a Democrat and the party has grown enormously because of his efforts.”
Cohen went even further to suggest that Sanders has appeal beyond the traditional Democrat base:
“And his real brand is that he doesn’t just speak to Democrats. He speaks to literally millions of people that are unaffiliated. And he’s really talking about what we should aim for and where we can build a consensus.”
However, the other 2020 candidates have distanced themselves from the Sanders’s democratic socialist brand.
At a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Senator Kamala Harris dismissed democratic socialism:
“The people of New Hampshire will tell me what’s required to compete in New Hampshire, but I will tell you I am not a democratic socialist.”
Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rouke also piled on the Bernie skepticism by asserting that he’s still a “capitalist.”
O’Rourke downplayed democratic socialism telling reporters that “I don’t see how we’re able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market.”
It’s ironic that Democrats, members of a political party that supports measures from confiscatory taxation, central banking, and state control of education, are desperately trying to re-assert their capitalist credentials.
It’s not like there is much of a difference between Sanders and your typical Democrat politician these days. Heck, Sanders is now embracing Democratic talking points on gun control.
Mainstream Democrats need to take a close look in the mirror and realize that they are quite socialist themselves. Alas, perception is reality in politics.
This just highlights the tendency of the Left eating its own. The fact of the matter is that the current-day Democratic Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of globalist interests.
As a result, they will continue to go further left as time progress. Countries like Venezuela serve as cautionary tales of what happens when a political culture fully embraces leftism. You get to a point where voters only have a choice between hardcore socialists and socialist lite candidates.
Not many options there.
Sadly, this is where the Democratic party finds itself these days.
If they’re going to be honest with their constituents, Democrats might as well come clean with their socialist policies and stop trying to run away from the socialist label.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
