FoxNews.com reports that
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tried to tamp down the perceived influence of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive freshman Democrats, saying their wing in Congress was “like five people.”
Speaking with CBS News’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes,” Pelosi said the 29-year-old congresswoman from New York didn’t have a significant impact on the Democratic Party. The House speaker also said she rejected socialism “as an economic system.”
“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi, to which the 79-year-old replied: “That’s like five people.”
“No, it’s the progressive group, it’s more than five,” the interviewer pushed back. Pelosi contended that she herself is a progressive.
The speaker added that she believes Congressional Democrats “by and large … know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream,” and said she “reject[s] socialism as an economic system.”
“If people have that view, that’s their view,” she said. “That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”
When pressed on whether Congress has been productive, she said Democrats regained control of the House only three months ago, and that things were moving. She added: “The power of the Speaker is awesome.”
Once again, Speaker of the House Pelosi overestimates herself.
How could the views of AOC and her fellow travelers NOT be the view of the Democratic Party?
Their Party Chairman, Tom Perez, is a Far Left Hispanic Political Activist.
And every piece that they have proposed since Trump took office has been from a Far Left political viewpoint.
The Democrats have been advocating “Democratic Socialism” for quite a while now.
San Fran Nan is attempting to somehow combat Trump’s rising popularity and their tanking favorability ratings.
The past two years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.
The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.
And now, with Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors failing to find any proof of Russian Collusion and no actionable proof of obstruction, veteran Democrats like Pelosi realize that claiming that they are actually “Moderates” may be the only way to keep their party from going the way of the Whigs.
However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.
The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.
Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.
And, average Americans are loving it.
They learned nothing at all during their 2 years out of power.
For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.
And, simply declaring themselves to be “Moderates” is not going to cut it.
The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.
Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.
However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.
Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…
- Americans are “jingoistic”.
- America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
- The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
- Perversion is perfectly normal.
- They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.
There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.
Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.
Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….
And, judging from their lack of accomplishments thus far, the Pelosi-led House of Representatives is going to do nothing to halt the Dem’s downward descent into oblivion.
Pass the salt and butter, please.
Until He Comes,
