This looks like an attempt to pre-emptively dismiss Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ expected victory in the 2020 Iowa Democrat Caucuses.
“The Democratic caucuses are not ‘just like’ a primary election. The results of the caucuses are more complex than a simple vote count,” said Nora Cate Schaeffer, the president of AAPOR.
“Judging how well the pre-caucus polls of Iowa Democrats have performed must wait until the final caucus results are in,” Schaeffer stated.
The political establishment is clearly in the tank for former Vice President Joe Biden.
Sanders has been leading in the Iowa polls and is expected to come out victorious by the end of Monday night.
If the Democrat party truly lived up to its name, it would respect the will of its voters and not use the media to craft misleading narratives that favor its pet candidates such as Biden.
Nevertheless, Bernie Sanders’ surge represents a growing radicalization within the Democratic Party that will likely not go away.
For 2020, Trump is the only presidential option that can at least be a stop-gap against the managerial state.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
