Democratic New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand became the latest Democrat to announce a campaign for President in 2020 on Tuesday.
However it seems that this will come as a surprise to many of the New York voters who elected her to another Senate term in November- as Gillibrand had plainly stated that she was going to serve a full six-year term during the 2018 election.
When asked by a moderator during a campaign debate for New York’s 2018 U.S Senate election if she would “get out of the race, not run for President, and you will serve your six year term,” Gillibrand plainly stated that she would “serve her six year term.” This pledge during a campaign event was merely three months ago- an outright and red-handed lie to New York voters, if not a convenient and equally dishonest “change of heart” on the part of the New York senator.
Several progressive commentators expressed their doubt that Gillibrand’s pledge to serve a six-year term in the Senate was ever genuine, merely serving as a rhetorical tool to secure the support of New York’s mostly left-leaning voter base.
Gillibrand is known for her close ties to Wall Street and the billionaire donor class of the Democratic Party. Some Democrats and progressives remain irritated with her role in the resignation of former Minnesota Senator Al Franken, who was accused of sexual misconduct. Her insistence on Franken’s resignation- who remains a popular figure in many left-leaning circles- could pose a road block for the prospects of her already dubious presidential campaign.
Gillibrand became a source of controversy when she claimed that the future of the United States was explicitly “female,” as if Americans of both genders no longer had a place in an “intersectional” vision of the country’s future. She’s been labeled by many progressives as the quintessential “corporate feminist,” representing the union of socially “progressive” and big business interests.
As of Wednesday morning, the lack of enthusiasm for Gillibrand’s entry into the increasingly crowded Democratic primary seemed clearly indicated by a surprisingly potent “ratio” in response to her tweet announcing the move. As of Wednesday morning, it’s received a grand total of twenty-one retweets, and more than 1,400 responses- mostly from progressives incensed by the presidential campaign of a Democrat they see as beholden to elite donor interests and hostile to insurgent movements with the party.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
