FIGHT: Doug Collins Stands Up To Pelosi on House Floor

Published

on

Georgia Republican Congressman Doug Collins stood up to Nancy Pelosi on the House floor as Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of racism for criticizing left-wing members of Congress who have made anti-American and anti-Semitic comments.

Astute political observer Rush Limbaugh remarked Monday that President Donald Trump is making a good strategic play by making the 2020 media spectacle a battle of personalities between himself and the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the new Democrat party.

Trump even noted in his press conference the low poll numbers of at least one of the progressive caucus members that he called out on Twitter. This comes on the heels of a leak of internal Democrat polling, which shows tragically low numbers for Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar: only 22 percent of white voters with two or fewer years of college think positively of AOC, and 9 percent for Omar.

Rush explains: “At the very least, you know what you can say is that Donald Trump is helping define the Democrat Party, and in that sense, what Trump is doing here… Whether this is an intended consequence or not, the fact is that Trump is pushing the Democrats and the Drive-Bys into staunchly defending the most radical haters this country has at the moment. These people — and it’s not just these four women in the Squad. It’s the entire Democrat Party. Trump is forcing them to come out and defend. Make no mistake about the fact the American people are fully aware of what’s going on on the Democrat side regarding their anti-Americanism…

I think there are more people aware of this than anybody in the Drive-By Media would ever contemplate. I think for as long as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been on the scene (and even before that), I think there are so many millions of Americans who are fed up with the anti-American diatribe that has become readily identified with the Democrat Party policy. It is anti-American, it’s anti-American founding, it’s anti-American exceptionalism, it’s anti-American greatness…

They believe this stuff. So here comes Megan Rapinoe or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or any of these other people, and the media loves them, and they treat them with kid gloves, and they make ’em big time stars and these people end up believing their own press. And they are not aware of how much animus they are creating for themselves because they live in this alternative reality where people unlike them are a relative few and a minority and don’t deserve to be dealt with, counted, talked to. They despise us; they hate us; they think they’re the majority…

And yet these people, because of the fawning media coverage they get, end up having this anti-American stuff applauded, validated. They end up thinking they’re big stars. They end up thinking they’re in the majority and when they fade away ’cause nobody has ever cared in the first place, they’re left dumbstruck. They do not represent the majority of thinking. The fact of the matter is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squad members, they are communists. They hate Israel, they do not like the United States, and everybody’s paying attention to them knows this…

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
