In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


A Gift to the GOP: Democrats Move Toward Leninism Light

The victory of extreme leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York over Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat and someone who many thought would replace Nancy Pelosi, is a huge win for Republicans and President Trump.

Just a thought – how come the press never describes someone like Ocasio-Cortez – who supports universal health care, guaranteed employment, and abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency – as “extreme” or “radical”? Or even “left-wing.” Only conservatives are “extreme” or have a “wing” attached to them. Sorry, just thinking out loud.

Anyway, my point is, even if the press believes socialists are perfectly mainstream, much of the rest of the country still does not, and plenty – particularly conservatives – will turn out in force to support Republicans. People like Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters – Republicans should hope to see more of her if her message wasn’t so dangerous – are confirming that the Democratic Party belongs to Bernie Sanders, whose policies are insane.

Professional Republicans are well aware of this. The RNC Tuesday released this video, a quite effective one, seems to me:

Of course, Trump gets this too.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only victory for the left, as Politico reports:

It wasn’t the only victory for liberals in competitive primaries on Tuesday.

Former NAACP President Ben Jealous won the Democratic nomination for Maryland governor, campaigning over the final weekend with Sen. Bernie Sanders, even as Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker had most of the state party in his corner.

Elsewhere in New York, a Syracuse University professor, Dana Balter, beat a more moderate opponent backed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Juanita Perez Williams in a battleground House district. Rep. Jared Polis won the Democratic nomination for governor in Colorado, and Joe Neguse, a preferred candidate among liberals, won the nomination to replace Polis in the House.

While Crowley was the only incumbent to fall, two of his New York City colleagues — Reps. Yvette Clarke and Carolyn Maloney — were held under 60 percent against 30-something candidates who said the progressive moment inspired their under-the-radar campaigns.

These people are going to make Nancy Pelosi look completely reasonable and moderate. They are also going to flatten out the Blue Wave everyone was expecting this year.

The bad news is that the opposition party is now one step from communist.

  1. Obama’s dream come true. But once the Dems get there, they’ll stay there. Then we’ll always be one election away from revolution.

    If Hillary had won, what first steps would she have taken? I’m curious to know what the Kofflerites think.

    1. Just guessing: The Clinton machine would have used the power of the WhiteHouse to erase, obliterate, and/or fire any one or anything Obama. There was no love for the Obamas or anyone associated with them.

      1. Here’s where I think tings would be by now:
        1) Liberal Supreme Court
        2) ISIS running amok
        3) Possibly bombing of N. Korea
        4) Economy either flat or crashing
        5) Catch & release continuing
        6) Some type of terrorist attack in US
        7) HRC drunk every night (nothing new here)
        8) I believe her health condition would worsen.
        9) Russia in her “sights”

        1. And Crazy Hillary would have signed an Executive Order requiring all those who voted for Trump to wear an armband with the word “Deplorable” on it.

  2. The only difference between this young woman and the man she defeated seems to be an honest revelation of who they are and what their agenda would be if Dems regain the majority in Congress.
    The current elected Dems have made themselves the party of anti-immigration law enforcement, the shower of freebies for all, the higher taxing of successful people, and of course – free medical care for everyone.
    Oh, how could we forget – removing firearms from everyone is always a fond wish of Dems, along with forcing America into a horse and buggy life without fossil fuels and killing unwanted children everywhere.

  3. By the same note, Mittens won in Utah yesterday, so the Democrats are going to pick up another seat in the Senate. REGARDLESS of who wins in November.

  4. There is no such thing as “light” Leninism. There are millions of dead people who could attest to that, if it were possible.

  5. Both old bats Waters and Pelosi should have hung up their support hose decades ago! Those two do NOT represent ANY generation – and are a gross embarrassment both to themselves with snickers behind their back and loser libs who just wanna hold onto their jobs out front~

  6. This is their version of the tea party movement. It could be more significant for one reason. Dems are master of controlling their voting block. A handful of extreme leftists may break that down…

  7. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is as far to the extreme left as she is beautiful. And when she is elected to Congress, as she undoubtedly will be this November, she is going to be the most beautiful person ever to have served in Congress; the Belle of the DC ball!
