Wayne Messam Declares Candidacy

The sixteenth Democrat to announce his candidacy for President of the United States is Wayne Messam, mayor of Miramar, Florida.

Messam is the latest Democrat to announce his candidacy, having launched his campaign with a website devoid of any platform or clearly identified positions on key issues, and a YouTube video with just over 5,000 views at press time.

The candidate is the son of Jamaican immigrants, as he notes in his launch video, and was the first black mayor of Miramar. He unseated a 16-year incumbent to attain the elected office, garnering a mere 2,756 votes to secure the position. He ran one reelection campaign, and received just under 6,000 votes.

His campaign launch video, which shows him running and stretching on a dirt road, stresses the importance of his immigrant heritage and pursuing the American dream. However, he did not clearly articulate a single policy in the campaign launch video.

Messam confusingly rambled into the camera, saying “The problem in America as I see it is that we are not addressing these high-stakes problems that we must deal with today,” then went on to list various examples, including senior citizens who cannot afford prescription medicine, the importance of believing in climate change hysteria, and student loan debt, reaffirming after each example that “Washington is broken.”

The Messam campaign website, as with the video, is devoid of content. It offers several paragraphs summarizing Messam’s life story, but does not currently have a single page devoted to issues or positions. Instead, Messam encourages visitors to donate, so he can reach the 65,000 individual donations the Democrat Party requires candidates to achieve before they will be given a coveted position on the debate stage.

Messam’s candidacy marks the 16th Democrat to join the presidential race for 2020. In addition to the 16 declared candidates, CNN reports that another 11 candidates are considering a run, including likely front runner and former Vice President Joe Biden, bringing the total number of potential and confirmed candidates to 27.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate

So much for moderation and unity…

Published

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”

Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
