Newsflash to Democratic Party candidates: Denmark is not socialist. It's a market based economy.

There is no room for sanity anymore in the party of Kennedy and Clinton.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/08/29/crac ... paign=9874
Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, urged his fellow liberals to take practical considerations into account. They treated him like a man with an infectious disease:

Ryan: “In this discussion already tonight, we’ve talked about taking private health insurance away from union members in the industrial Midwest, we’ve talked about decriminalizing the border, and we’ve talked about giving free health care to undocumented workers when so many Americans are struggling to pay for their health care. I, quite frankly, don’t think that is an agenda that we can move forward on and win. We’ve got to talk about the working-class issues

The dems are genociding the sane wing of their party. I don't like Republicans either.

These loons wants to put millions of Americans out of work, nationalize the energy sector and gives trillions of dollars to companies with schemes that will jack up the cost of living for everyone and only slow climate change one seventh of a degree.
If Americans want all pain and no reward, vote democRAT.

Banning Plastic Straws, Fossil Fuels: Here Are Seven Standout Moments From CNN’s Climate Town Hall

CNN’s seven-hour climate town hall allowed ten of the top Democratic presidential candidates to flesh out their positions on climate change, with two of the front-runners expressing support for the Green New Deal.
Mayor Peter Buttigieg suggested the Democrat’s fight against climate change could be more challenging than even World War II.
Sen. Bernie Sanders offered a one-word reply when CNN asked him if he would reinstate bans on certain kinds of light bulbs.

“I think the Green New Deal deserves an enormous amount of credit,” former Vice President Joe Biden told CNN’s Anderson Cooper before listing off what he considers to be the problems with the much-criticized idea to stop global warming.

He noted that “85 percent of the problem” (climate change) is coming from the rest of the world.

2. Harris Says She Would Ding The Filibuster To Implement The GND

“If [Republicans] fail to act, as president of the United States, I am prepared to get rid of the filibuster to pass a Green New Deal,” Sen. Kamala Harris of California said to audience applause.

Harris said Republicans should “look in the mirror and ask themselves why they failed to act,” calling the fight for the GND one “against powerful interests.” Democrats would need to win Senate control along with the presidency to have any hope of ending the longstanding tradition.

3. Yang Won’t Talk About Electric Cars

Yang skirted questions about whether every American will need to drive electric cars in the future. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Yang why he would promise federal funds for “potentially risky” and experimental means of energy production.

“We’re here together because we can. This is a crisis. In a crisis, all solutions have to be on the table. If you were attacking on one side, you should be researching various alternatives on the other side. That to me is just responsible management and responsible leadership,” Yang explained.

4. Sanders’ One Word Answer To A Question About Light Bulbs

“The Trump administration announced plans to overturn requirements on energy-saving lightbulbs. … Would you reinstate those requirements?” CNN’s Cooper asked Sanders, who has described himself as a self-avowed democratic socialist.

The Vermont senator answered with one word: “Duh.” Sanders’ comment came several hours after the Trump administration announced new rules Wednesday rolling back requirements for energy-saving light bulbs.

5. O’Rourke Wants To Bring The U.S. Back Into The Paris Climate Accord

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke promised that he would re-enter the Paris agreement on “day-one” of his presidency. The Texas Democrat announced his climate plan in April, which will cost $5 trillion over 10 years to build out renewable energy and infrastructure, among a host of other pet projects.

6. Klobuchar Says No To New Coal Power Plants

“I wouldn’t allow for building of new coal plants.” Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said in answer to a question about ending fossil fuel use and her hope to get to “carbon neutral by 2050.”

7. Buttigieg Likens Climate Fight To WWII

“This is the hardest thing we will have done — certainly in my lifetime. This is on par with winning World War II. Perhaps, even more challenging than that,” Mayor Peter Bugiegieg told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Ranking the Democratic debaters – from Warren to O’Rourke


The Houston Democratic presidential debate on Thursday did not produce breakout moments for any of the candidates. Instead, it consisted mostly of a jumble of promises, spending sprees and a litany of typical liberal positions. Some candidates pledged mostly free, immediate and unlimited health care; others called for reparations, releasing prisoners, implementing gun control, etc. But no one differentiated themselves from the pack. Generally, there was a lot of copycatting.

One thing the previous debates confirmed is that the debates really do not matter that much. It is hard to build on a good performance, and a bad performance does not necessarily mean the campaign is over. That said, the candidates who are struggling in the polls have less time and fewer occasions to impress party activists and donors. Going into Thursday’s debate, the front-runners needed to avoid mistakes and the lesser-knowns needed to distinguish themselves and reassure the supporters they already have. Overall, the 2020 campaign moved sideways in Thursday’s debate.

So, here’s my take on how Thursday’s candidates did, ranked from 1 (best) to 10 (worst).

1. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts: Earnest and energetic. Warren’s overall performance, plus a well-organized and disciplined campaign, make her formidable. If more voters are hearing about her and tuned in to see what all the talk was about, they probably came away impressed. She is ascending and did nothing to diminish her momentum. By the way, Warren may have been the most compelling of all the candidates when talking about Afghanistan.

2. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont: It was more of the same from Sanders. If you liked Sanders before, you liked him tonight. And it’s worth noting that Sanders is 78 years old and former vice president Joe Biden is 76, but there is rarely the suggestion that Sanders is too old. He doesn’t display any of the classic symptoms of someone who is losing his game.

3. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey: Probably his best performance so far. Booker showed he was knowledgeable on policy and comfortable in the spotlight, yet his campaign is on life support. Booker needed to avoid disaster, and tonight he did much better than that.

4. Former vice-president Joe Biden: Every day, in front of every audience, Biden faces a threshold question: Does he appear to be too old for the presidency? He seemed to have some slurred speech and jumbled thoughts, but he was certainly caffeinated. He even seemed determined at times. Biden is the front-runner, but he is not dominant.

5. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg: He gave us more of his earnest “staffguy” performance. It has some appeal, but not enough so far. There is no reason to think that tomorrow — or any other day during the campaign — will be any different.

6. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang: He seems confident and at ease - almost reassuring. But Yang’s clumsy giveaway of $1,000 a month to a random few fell flat. It sounded like he was initiating some sort of lottery gimmick rather than a plan for governing. He has a sensible, interesting style, but not one that accumulates votes.

7. Former housing and urban development secretary Julián Castro: Probably the best classic performer. He did fine, but nothing particularly memorable. He tried to take a cheap shot at Biden on being old and forgetful, but it did not land.

8. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota: Unfortunately for her, Klobuchar was unremarkable. Declaring success on bringing down the price of drugs was not credible. Her “I read the bill” line was meant to challenge Sanders, and it was a good line for a senator but not for a president. She comes across as authentically moderate, but she needed a lift tonight and did not get it.

9. Sen. Kamala Harris of California: Her droll monotone was occasionally interrupted by an overacting laugh. But as a first-time presidential candidate, she was tentative and rehearsed. She did nothing to encroach on the top three candidates. It is interesting that in the general election, being a prosecutor is a net plus, but among Democrats, it seems to be a net negative.

10. Former congressman Beto O’rourke of Texas: He got plenty of mentions from the other candidates for his well-received performance after the El Paso, Texas, shooting, but that was probably a sign of weakness. Nobody is afraid of O’rourke. The other candidates probably thought there was no harm in praising him on the way out the door.

So, the 2020 campaign continues on the same trajectory it was on before the debate. The race is tightening among three, maybe four candidates, and the rest are falling further behind. There is still plenty of time before voters have to decide, but money and momentum will soon shift toward the more-established campaigns.

Elizabeth Warren will be the Dem nominee in my opinion. She has a plan to remake the entire US economy. Her plan reveals a systematic reliance on regulation and protectionism. It is not the answer to America's problems. It will create more poverty.

Knesset Speaker rips Bernie Sanders for ‘absurd’ claims about Gaza

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein took to Twitter on Tuesday to criticize U.S. Senator Bernie Sander’s opinion of allocating part of the U.S. military aid given to Israel to Gaza for humanitarian purposes.

In the video tweet, Edelstein said that he met with E.U. officials and told them that it’s time to put these “absurd” claims regarding the economic situation in the Gaza Strip to rest.

“Every time he [Sanders] sees a Hamas rocket launched towards Israel, I see food and diapers and medicine flying in the air,” Edelstein said.

“When someone says there are no means, I don’t accept it,” he said. “They [Hamas] have all the necessary means but use the money earmarked for the public benefit in order to attack the State of Israel.”

Bernie Sanders is so ignorant of how the authorities in Gaza spend aid money.

Joseph Stalin Warns Dems May Be Going Too Far Left
Image

MOSCOW—Brutal totalitarian dictator Joseph Stalin has warned Democrats that they may be going "too far left."

"The Dems are kinda scaring me with all this far-left stuff," Stalin said during a brief visit from his father's house below. "Yes, I was one of history's most deranged mass murderers, killing, like, 20 million people, but even I knew a boy is a boy and a girl is a girl. And we didn't have any of this weird transgender athlete stuff---we just used steroids to stifle the competition and fired AK-47s at athletes' feet until they ran faster."

"Honestly, I'm a little worried," Stalin said, distancing himself from the leftist wing of the Democratic Party. "If they keep this up, they'll kill even more people than I did."

Stalin's comments immediately faced backlash on social media, with progressives sarcastically asking Stalin whether he thought "a livable wage," "good healthcare," and "mass starvation resulting from government's inability to plan an economy" were "too far left."

He has been canceled, reburied, and his old tweets are being investigated.
