Democratic Debates Part 2: Second Verse, Same As the First…With Medicare For All!

FoxNews.com reports that

It was a battle for the soul of the Democratic Party on stage in Detroit.

Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — the presidential primary field’s liberal standard-bearers — were pulled into what was essentially a two-hour fight with their more moderate rivals Tuesday night at the second round of Democratic debates.

The result was the party’s divide on full display, with the center-left (and lower-polling) contenders fiercely arguing that policies like “Medicare-for-all” and the Green New Deal will “FedEx the election” to President Trump, and the higher-polling candidates on the left flank just as fiercely arguing that their policies are just the kind of bold solutions America needs.

“I think Democrats win when we run on real solutions, not impossible promises,” said former Maryland Rep. John Delaney, who elbowed his way into claiming considerable airtime during the debate.

Warren shot back: “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for.” The line drew loud applause from the room and crystallized the essential debate in the Democratic primary right now, as many in the field gravitate toward liberal policy positions amid warnings from other candidates about the implications for next November.

Some of the biggest fireworks, though, broke out early in the CNN-hosted debate.

A number of the more centrist longshots for the nomination threw punches at the biggest proponents of a government-run single-payer health care system that would eliminate private insurance – Sens. Sanders of Vermont and Warren of Massachusetts, the two top-tier progressive candidates standing center stage on the first night of the second-round primary debates.

Even before the questioning got underway, Delaney took aim at both of them – arguing in his opening statement that “we can go down the road that Senator Sanders and Senator Warren want to take us, with bad policies like Medicare-for-all, free everything and impossible promises that will turn off independent voters and get Trump re-elected.”

Minutes later, Sanders succinctly responded, telling Delaney “you’re wrong.”

And pushing back against criticism by Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan challenging Sanders’ insistence that his Medicare-for-all bill will provide medical insurance equal to or better than the current plans Americans would lose if the country moved to a single-payer system, Sanders shot back: “I do know. And I wrote the damn bill.”

Warren joined Sanders in defending Medicare-for-all, chastising their critics.

“Let’s be clear about this. We are the Democrats. We are not about trying to take away health care from anyone. That’s what the Republicans are trying to do,” she said to applause from the crowd.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, making his debate debut, also took aim at Medicare-for-all, emphasizing that “at the end of the day I’m not going to support any plan that rips away quality health care from individuals. This is an example of wish list economics. It used to be Republicans who wanted to repeal and replace. Now we have Democrats as well.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota also took aim at a single-payer system.

The implementation of a State-Run Healthcare System has been a major goal of the Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Communists, Socialists, Marxists, and Alinsky-ites, for decades now.

Call them what you will…I think they stink on ice. But, I digress…

To the Wayback Machine, Sherman! (That’s a reference to the “Rocky & Bullwinkle Show”, for you 20 year olds)

After Bill “Bubba” Clinton and Hillary “Cankles” Clinton ascended to the presidency in 1993, they immediately started to work on putting together a Plan for National Healthcare Reform, whether the American People actually thought we needed it, or not.

Sound Familiar?

First, Bill appointed Hillary as the chair of the task force devising the plan. you see, Bubba had campaigned heavily on health care in the 1992 U.S. presidential election. After the task force was created in January 1993, the way it conducted business came under scrutiny by Congress and the public, alike.   Like Obama’s promise concerning Obamacare, the Clinton Task Force’s goal was to come up with a comprehensive plan to provide universal health care for all Americans, which was to be a cornerstone of the administration’s first-term agenda.

In September of 1993, Clinton went before Congress and delivered a major healthcare speech, introduced Congress and the Nation to his and his little flower’s (Hillary, not Jennifer) Grand Scheme.

The core element of the proposed plan was an enforced mandate for employers to provide health insurance coverage to all of their employees through competitive but closely regulated health maintenance organizations.

Again…sound familiar, boys and girls?

Just like the Obamacare debacle, anybody with any sense whatsoever, including, but not limited to,  Conservatives, Libertarians, and the Healthcare and the Health Insurance Industries, rose up against the Clintons’ plan.

The Health Insurance Industry even came out with a highly effective television ad, a “Harry and Louise” ad, designed to rally public support against the plan. Democrats, in an attempt to protect their phony-boloney jobs, started distancing themselves from the Clintons, and instead of uniting behind the First Couple’s National Healthcare Proposal, started presenting a number of competing plans of their own.

Bill and Hil’s Grand Scheme ultimately withered away amid the barrage of fire from the American Public and even further cemented the public’s perception of Ms. Rodham Clinton as the power-hungry shrew of a wife, behind her easy-going, people person husband, “good ol’ Bubba”.

The Clintons’ Grand Scheme was declared dead by Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell in September of 1994.

Our next stop during our journey through the inception of Obamacare, involves Former 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate Willard “Mitt” Romney.

Back in 2006, Romney signed a massive health-insurance overhaul into law as Governor of Massachusetts. “Romneycare” was packed with subsidies, exchanges, and mandates to extend coverage to the uninsured. Four years later, it became the model for the national nightmare known as Obamacare.

Why did I include “Mittens”?

Because…Romney IS a Democrat…in Republican’s clothing.

But, I digress…

And then came the biggest failure of all the “Universal Healthcare” Initiatives…Obamacare.

Americans did not get to keep their doctors…or their insurance plans.

It caused more devastation to America’s Healthcare System than Rosie O’ Donnell does to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

That brings us to the present.

Gentle Readers, make no mistake about it, the Democrats are in the middle of a Civil War with the Far Left Radicals like Warren, Sanders, and “The Squad” boldly going where no SANE person has gone before, while the Liberal p0oliticians in the party who tell the public that they are “Moderate” are attempting to fool the voters that they have the same core beliefs that they do.

The “Moderate” Democrats remind me of Paul Ryan and the Vichy Republicans.

All show and no go.

While they realize that their political party will commit mass seppuku of the run on a platform of far Left ideas and programs, clothed under the more palatable-sounding “Democratic Socialism”, they are being shouted down by the members of their party who fervently believe that they can actually make Marxism work…this time.

This misinformed belief goes along with their belief that Americans are anxious and willing to pay exorbitant income taxes in order to fund Single Payer Healthcare and their other “social programs” designed, as Former President Obama would say, to “share the wealth”.

Fat chance of that happening, Skippy.

But, hey “Smartest people in the room”, go ahead and “FedEx the election” to President Trump.

It will “ABSOLUTELY….POSITIVELY” KEEP AMERICA GREAT.

Until He Comes,

Democratic Party Civil War: Pelosi Vs. the Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse

pelosi-shuts-down-questions-on-feud-with-alexandria-ocasio-cortez

A funny thing happened on the way to Pelosi’s “benevolent dictatorship” in the House of Representatives.

Pelosi is now finding herself and all of the “Old Guard” House Dems being pushed out of political power by 4 first year Congresswomen, anti-Semitic Marxists who have quite literally “come out of nowhere” to take all the air out of the House of Representatives.

And, the “Iron Lady” of the House can not seem to do anything about it.

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race.

Speaking to Fox News on Thursday nice, Clay hammered Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said.

“It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi.”

Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators”.

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members. They will have to learn to be effective legislators,” he said.

“It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.”

The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.

“It shows they have no sensibility to different members from our caucus. Some come from red districts and those are the ones who gave us the majority. We need them all,” he said.

His comments followed a feud between Pelosi and freshman congresswomen, like Ocasio-Cortez, that involved racially-charged criticism.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, previously compared moderate Democrats to racists — prompting Pelosi, at the request of some of her members, to warn House Democrats not to attack each other on Twitter.

“You got a complaint?  You come and talk to me about it.  But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok,” she reportedly said. On the same day of that caucus meeting, Ocasio-Cortez called out Pelosi for what she sees as the speaker continually targeting her and other freshmen lawmakers of color.

“Their ignorance is beyond belief,” Clay also said while in the Speaker’s Lobby, according to The Hill.

Clay wasn’t the only one to attack Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday. “The View” hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg criticized her’s and others’ decision to attack Democrats like Pelosi. “I think this is more BS,” Goldberg said of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on race.

Pelosi, meanwhile, refused to provide further comment on the feud while discussing it during her weekly press briefing.

“I’ve said what I’m going to say…What I said in the caucus yesterday had an overwhelming response from my members,” she said.

“Because they know what the facts are and what we are responding to. We respect the value of every member of our caucus. The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing. Diversity is our strength. Unity is our power.”

Are the rest of the “Moderate Democrats” all bound and gagged and being kept in a bunker somewhere?

Let’s face it, gentle readers.

Methinks San Fran Nan Pelosi doth protest too much.

It is obvious to the entire Free World that Marxism is being fully embraced by the Far Left Democratic Party in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.

Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
 

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.

The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.

No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

And, just like the Czar and the rest of the Russian Leadership back in 1918, Pelosi and the Old Guard of the Democratic Party are so impotent as a result of living off of their decades of political greed and piracy, that the energetic impudence of these “New Bolsheviks” has taken them completely by surprise.

These new “useful idiots” like the Democrats’ “Four Horsewomen of the Democrat Apocalypse” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only the present but the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they have become that which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a much bigger “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

However, like the Marxists who have declared “war” on America and her citizens before, this new generation of “useful idiots” will find it very hard to win the hearts of average Americans.

For you see, we know Who gave us this country. America was built on a Solid Rock.

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25

And, as I have written previously, the “Democratic Socialists” don’t even know which restroom to use.

Until He Comes,
