By the end of February, the race for the Democratic nomination may have come down to a choice of one of three white men. Two are well into their 70s, and either would be the oldest president ever inaugurated. The third is a 38-year-old gay in a same-sex marriage who would be our youngest president ever.
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” wrote socialist Saul “the Red” Alinsky in his book Rules for Radicals. It “infuriates the opposition.” His fellow leftists are certainly proving this true, too. Having a “Babylon Bee in their bonnets,” they’re attacking the satirical site because, apparently, they only like fake news when it’s masquerading as the real thing.
Barack Obama certainly isn’t feeling the Bern, unless it’s indigestion. Concerned that presidential candidate Bernie Sanders — perhaps the new Democrat front-runner — won’t be able to trump Trump, the ex-president is considering a public rebuke of the Vermont senator designed to kill his momentum. Obama isn’t alone in experiencing the Bernie blues. The Democrat establishment clearly doesn’t want Sanders, who’s not even a Democrat but an independent (and avowed socialist), as its party’s nominee; this was evidenced in the recent failed effort to tar Sanders as “sexist.”
As The New American noted on Wednesday, the real agenda of the Davos confab taking place this week in Switzerland is giving more and more power and control to global elites in order to make the world more “sustainable.” We wrote: “This involves us giving them — the saviors — more power and more money.” The partners supporting the World Economic Forum (WEF) vision include Big Business, Big Banking, Big Tech, Big Foundations, Big Green, and Big Labor. As we noted, “This united front pushes for more Big Government as the solution to every “crisis” — with Global Total Government as the ultimate solution.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the economics major who once said that “unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” used this past Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to attack the rich. Perhaps believing that a person is not judged by the content of his character but the corpulence of his wallet, she said in an interview with author Ta-Nehisi Coates, “No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars.”
The New York Times, the “paper of record” that was once Stalin’s mouthpiece, has just made news by giving us all the presidential endorsements fit to print. In a first not just for the paper but, perhaps, for any paper, it has chosen two candidates: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). No, the Times isn’t recommending we become like ancient Sparta, which once had two kings; isn’t espousing a binatarian view of two persons in one commander in chief; and isn’t likely trying to help Democrats who vote twice. So what was the paper doing?
With former vice-president Joe Biden still maintaining a lead in many polls, some of the more “progressive” elements of the Democrat Party are dreaming of a scenario in which some combination of Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), two icons of the far left in America, would join forces to run as president and vice president against Donald Trump in November.
Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said her plan to end private health insurance for all Americans by forcing everyone in the country onto public health plans will be paid for by the extra tax revenue that will supposedly be available after she extends amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens currently within our country’s borders.
Ruling-class Democrats might whisper to each other and even tell the media that Joe Biden can’t defeat President Trump, but it appears that rank-and-file voters don’t agree. Biden’s latest numbers in the Real Clear Politics average of voter polls put him 5.4 points ahead of Elizabeth Warren, a shade less than last week’s six-point lead, but still close to what he polled then.
