As the Democratic Party takes control of the House of Representatives, their starting line-up of committee chairmen reveals an alarming trend: radicalism and socialism have found a home in the Democratic Party and now the halls of the House of Representatives.
Steeped in establishment politics, far too many rising Democratic “leaders” hail from a bygone era of radicalism and confrontation.
Radicals like Maxine Waters (CA-43) used to be easily dismissed as fringe figures of the far left. Not anymore. Now, the firebrand, Antifa-inspiring congresswoman from California is the new chair of the House Financial Services Committee – a frightening prospect indeed.
The incoming chairwoman has previously expressed a desire for the federal government to seize control of oil companies, led a group of celebrities in a chant to impeach President Trump last fall, and has repeatedly called for mobs to harass administration officials.
Waters’ years of radicalism are made worse by the fact that her family personally profited from her congressional position every step of the way, raking in more than $1 million with her assistance.
It’s no wonder that the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have designated Waters “Most Corrupt member of Congress” in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2017.
Waters is hardly the only retro-radical character in the House Democrat leadership. Jerry Nadler (NY-10), the new chair of the Judiciary Committee, is also considered one of the most liberal lawmakers in the entire chamber.
This self-described “liberal lion” was recently overheard on a train telling his cronies that he wants to go “all-in” on the Russia conspiracy theory and impeach both President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh once Democrats assume control of the House in January.
Just in case there are any lingering doubts about his extremist ideological inclinations, Nadler has also dismissed most of the Democrats’ likely 2020 contenders as “too conservative.”
The chairman of the Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD-7), is all-in for launching an endless flurry of frivolous probes against President Trump as soon as he gets control of this powerful committee.
Cummings also holds radical views on immigration, insisting that we allow thousands of “caravaners” into the country illegally.
Moreover, Cummings has backed proposals to give federal workers and public sector unions even greater leverage over the government. Make no mistake — his tenure as head of the Oversight Committee will be just as radical as the rest of his career.
Even seemingly establishment Democrats are prepared to implement a takedown strategy against President Trump. Just take a look at the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff (CA-28).
As a congressman, Schiff pushed for a blatantly unconstitutional bill to block President Trump’s pardon power, tried to repeal the Lawful Commerce in Arms Act — which would allow liberal activists to bankrupt the gun industry — and proposed a constitutional amendment banning conservative speech under the guise of campaign finance reform.
Schiff also believes it’s his job to “check the ambition of an imperial and erratic president,” and he’ll surely use the Intelligence Committee’s broad powers to carry out that threat.
Just like so many of his colleagues, House Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch (FL-22) has called for President Trump’s impeachment, accusing him of obstructing justice last year.
Deutch has a legislative record that fully exposes his radical liberal ideology. For example, Deutch pushed for a 2017 bill that would have created $200 million in “climate change bonds.” And like the rest of his Democratic colleagues, Deutch voted against giving hard-working Americans a pay raise in the form of the Trump tax cuts.
The Sun Sentinel has aptly described Deutch as “one of the most liberal members of the Florida congressional delegation” with “a lifetime [liberal] score of 95 percent.”
The most radical elements of the Democratic caucus have taken control of some of the most powerful committees in the House of Representatives. These faces, however, are not new — they are the same old liberals who have driven the party’s agenda for decades.
Nancy Pelosi may talk of bipartisanship, but that’s only because she knows she can rely on the true-blue extremists leading the major House committees to advance the Democrats’ real agenda of uncompromising obstruction.
Make no mistake about it — there’s nothing new about these old establishment Democrats whose ideas are just radical retreads that will act against the interests of the American people.
Gone is the party of President John F. Kennedy.

Madison Cawthorn Once Opposed Electoral College Certification…Now He Says Biden’s Victory was Legitimate
He is waffling and equivocating like a veteran RINO.
Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) has admitted that he never thought there was large-scale voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 presidential election, and he only opposed certifying the electoral college results as a political calculation.
Cawthorn made the admission when he was pressed during an appearance on CNN. Liberals are gloating on Twitter over Cawthorn’s pathetic and embarrassing hypocrisy:
“I think I would say the election was not fraudulent," he finally confesses after getting schooled by Pamela Brown. https://t.co/kuboW49wfW

“I think I would say the election was not fraudulent. The Constitution allowed for us to be able to push back as much as we could, and I did that to the … constitutional limits that I had at my disposal. So now I would say that Joseph R. Biden is our president,” Cawthorn said.
Cawthorn’s CNN appearance, which should be used as an example for Republican lawmakers of how not to deal with the press, can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on Cawthorn’s suspect behavior in the past and warned that he could be another RINO trying to dupe Trump supporters:
Madison Cawthorn, who is the Republican U.S. Rep. candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, is calling for a “new Republican Party” that pays lip service to issues that are important to leftists.
“The status quo days of the GOP being defined by what we are against, rather than what we are for, are over. We intend to listen, but we also intend to win the argument,” he wrote in his op/ed for the Daily Wire.
Instead of opposing left-wing policies, Cawthorn wants Republicans to capitulate and give concessions to the Left in order to placate to young people in Generation Z who overwhelmingly support leftist politics.
“For the past two decades, however, the Republican Party has marginalized principled reformers in its own ranks and let itself be branded as the “party of no.” On things such as health care, the environment, and other key issues, our leadership has aggressively attacked ideas from the Left but has failed to force consensus around the best ideas from the Right,” Cawthorn wrote.
“Our party, the Grand Old Party, is no longer very grand. But it is very old. Our leaders have failed us and it’s time we stopped putting up with it,” he added.
He wants Republicans to embrace government solutions on issues like healthcare and the environment while echoing woke talking points with regards to race.
“Our party ought not to be ashamed of its heritage nor be afraid of open debate and challenging the “woke” left. On race, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is right and wise to remind conservatives that unjust racial bias is real and persistent. As Scott, who is black, notes, he knows what it’s like to be pulled over to be stopped by security in the Capitol because of the color of his skin. We’ve come a long way, but Scott is right to remind Republicans that we have a long way to go,” Cawthorn wrote.
He also added a thinly-veiled shot as President Donald Trump, which is par for the course considering he is being published in ‘Never Trump’ icon Ben Shapiro’s blog.
“Let us rise as a New Republican Party. A party that offers real solutions and attacks ideas rather than individuals. A party that meets voters where they are, and instead of belittling them for what they care about, offers a better way,” Cawthorn wrote.
Cawthorn may be a sympathetic figure due to his handicap but he may be a dangerous RINO waiting in the weeds. His constituents in North Carolina must keep him honest if he is going to be an effective conservative lawmaker.
