Democrats face new civil war in primary fight
[The Hill] The bell has rung on round two of the Democratic Party’s civil war.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s entry into the 2020 presidential primary sets the stage for another knockdown, drag-out fight between the establishment wing of the party and the ascendant left, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

That showdown threatens to tear open old wounds the party suffered in the bitter 2016 primary contest between Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

Party leaders have tried to move on from that divisive episode, but there are still deep wells of suspicion and distrust between mainstream Democrats and the left.

"The civil war that started in 2016 never ended," said one veteran Democratic hand. "It’s still going on."

The 2016 primary contest left liberals fuming at what they viewed as establishment interference in the race, underscored by the hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails that showed favoritism toward Clinton.

#4  next week there may be three more candidates (mayor of NYC, Senator from CO and Guv from MT)

Bernie looks to finish first in Iowa and NH and that will reduce the field by eliminating about a dozen of the candidates but those events are 8 months away. Until then, let the woke times roll

No scandals? Biden repeats an old Obama whopper
[AMERICANTHINKER] Former vice president and newly-minted 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
The former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body...
appeared on "The View" on Friday morning and told hosts that his proudest moment of serving with President Barack Obama
How much damage could he do in four years?... Eight, then...
was that there was "not one whisper" of scandal during the time they served together in the White House.

Biden said that, coincidentally, he and Obama both told press on the same day while in different parts of the country that the thing they were most proud of while in the White House was that there was "not one whisper of a scandal."

"Not one," Biden said. "And that's because of Barack."
Two words: Russian Collusion. Three more words: Fast and Furious. I have lots more.

Dem Rep. Tlaib: I Was ‘Really Afraid of My Fellow Americans’ After 9/11
[BREITBART] During an interview with Maker that was published in 2018, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) recalled what her life was like for her following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Tlaib, a Moslem, revealed after the attack she was "really afraid" of her "fellow Americans."
Funny thing, that. I was really afraid for my fellow Americans.
"I was probably in my second year in law school when 9/11 happened," Tlaib shared. "And I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who was only a green card holder at the time. I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans."

She continued, "It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry. And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of bankrupt, increasingly impoverished, reliably Democrat, Detroit
... ruled by Democrats since 1962. A city whose Golden Age included the Purple Gang...

#4  Victor Davis Hanson, 'The Case for Trump', Part Five, Epilogue:

As 2018 ended, the country remained as bitterly divided as when Trump entered office in January 2017. 'The general fault lines remained unchanged. A mostly upscale and coastal urban professional and educated elite was politically aligned by suburban conservatives and a rural and small-town middle class in the nation's interior.

I wonder how many were first responders?

#14  She was afraid of her fellow Americans.
Nothing happened because her opinions of her fellow Americans was way off.
But she never re-evaluated her incorrect assumptions.

Sign of a typical zealot.

Donald Trump: ‘Pocahontas’ Elizabeth Warren Presidential Campaign Finished
[BREITBART] President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
ridiculed his potential Democrat rivals for president on Saturday, particularly Sen. Elizabeth Iron Eyes Warren
...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless..

"Can you imagine Sleepy Joe, Crazy Bernie, you look at the candidates, right? ‐ I think Pocahontas, she’s finished, she’s out, she’s gone ‐ Can you imagine any of those people up here doing what I’m doing?" he said during a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Trump said that even though he had no American Indian blood, he still had more than Warren.

"That was the end of her 32-year-old scam on colleges," he said.

Trump praised his supporters for filling up the arena despite predictions of bad weather.

"People that get it wrong the most are the weather forecasters and the political analysts," he said.

He said that some told him that he would have to cancel the rally.

"I said, ’Like hell, we’re going to cancel," he said, noting that people were standing outside over 24 hours early to get into the rally.

#1  The Democrats are seeking to FRAME and Impeach an honest man. They want to rig elections and stage a Coup of a man we , the American People, Constitutionally elected.

We wouldn't bother to "protest " if they persist in what they are doing. There are hundreds of millions of us. Democrats kill babies. They spit on the US Military. Democrats don't believe in God.

Democrats love Socialism and hate Capitalism. A democrats wants to remove Due Process of Law and remove the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution. Democrats hate the United States. Democrats bend over in the Bus Station stall. .

Democrats want to tell all of us, the majority of the American People, to have Values like they have and threaten to see us locked up or kicked out of our jobs if we don't obey them and do as we are told.

They hate Trump because he tells the Truth. Obama lied to us and bowed and showed his butt. Trump doesn't bow. And he calls it like it.
We like that.

Are you democrats willing to die for what you believe in? Ever been in a Platoon in Combat.? Ever read the Constitution and nodded your head in agreement? Been willing to die for what you believe is true.?


You "suits" own a gun ? No. ? Vote any way you please. But you stage a Coup and you make a big mistake.

My family lost three at Bloody Angle. Muzzle blasts set fire to the log revetments the fighting was so close and the Battle was fought during the Wilderness Campaign 1864 May 11th to the 16th in the rain.

Unless you democrats want to face men who will bayonet you in the face standing on the bodies of their own dead...go ahead and try to impeach Trump ....and be damned to you.

Adam Schiff tiptoes away from demand for Trump impeachment
[NYPOST] Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), one of President Trump’s most relentless critics, is tiptoeing away from demanding his impeachment ‐ saying instead that it’s up to the nation to "vote his ass out of office."

"I’m not there yet on impeachment," Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Friday night on HBO’s "Real Time with Bill Maher."

"I may get there. [Trump] may get me there," Schiff added.

"At the end of the day, Bill, there’s only one way to deal with this problem, whether we impeach him or not. And that is to vote his ass out of office."

On Sunday, Schiff said he expected House Democrats to debate going forward on impeachment hearings, after party leaders came under pressure from progressives to do so ‐ even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence that Trump’s campaign had colluded with Russia, as Schiff had charged.

Mueller’s report came to no conclusion about allegations that Trump had obstructed his investigation, but Attorney General William Barr decided not to pursue indictments into the matter

#1  Have any of these treasonous slimes ever said exactly what Trump did to "obstruct" justice?

Other than firing Comey, which was perfectly legal, do they have anything at all?
Posted by: AlanC || 04/28/2019 7:43 Comments || Top||

#2  How stupid do the Democrats think the American People are? Hillary PAID $10 million dollars to get the Steele Dossier which was GRU DIZ informatsky...to actually use to frame Trump for doing what she just did AND paid ten million dollars to the Russians herself.

I got a quick clue for you: The American People are NOT stupid.

IF Barr does NOT pursue Indictments for Democrats attempting to stage a Coup against a Constitutionally elected President by UN elected Bureaucrats...then it must be a FACT that there are two kinds of Law in the US...one for the Bosses and another for the Peons. The American People will remember that unless they see Justice done.

The Law will get no Respect if it is only applied the Smollet way and the rest of the American Public is abandoned. Maybe you don't believe the American People are a GIANT.....don't wake the Giant, it is very big..... and its armed. And it isn't stupid.

#3  The American Military are our brothers and our sons and our own Fathers. The Democrats spit on us. They don't respect our sons and brothers and fathers and say that we are stupid...or else we would get "real " jobs. And we are neanderthals and not decent people. Democrats say that.

We are expected to say out of Politics and to have no political feelings. But the USMCorps swears an OATH to uphold the Constitution. That is what the GUNS are FOR. To Defend the United States against all enemies, DOMESTIC or foreign. And the Democrats spit on us. Not to sugar coat it but, do you know what the bottom line actually IS....our Job is killing people who hate the United States. Trump is the President who stands between you...and US. He is all that keeps Democrats alive. He protects Democrats with his word and his presence. As long as the Vote is not Democrat rigged...and the Constitution is THERE...and there is no COUP. You and all the other Democrats are safe. You can depend on us, we WILL protect you and even though you spit on us we will remain Loyal to that Constitution.
Clinton couldn't keep his fly zipped. Obama showed his butt bowing. We were OK with that. They were duly elected. But a COUP? Don't push your Luck.

#4  Schiff was Hillary's running mate and they wese defeated. The fwo of them lost the election to the highest offices and are officially therefore the biggest losers in politics. They claim to have won the majority of the votes but were defeafed via the Electorial College. They think they, therefore, are legit and thus have a mandate to remove their opponent. Even if they have to lie, cheat or steal.

Wrong. The vast coastal populations are Dims. The vast majority of fly over is not. They ignored the vast majority of the least populated regions so the system worked, electorial college. and gave them a loss.

Trump was smart enough to know better so the system gave the smarter candidate the golden egg. The mid terms the Dims under estimated Trumps higher IQ again and he kept them from taking the Senate.

Packed rally in WI last night when Trump ignored the White House press dinner, the establishment pubs were never that smart. +3.2% GDP. The Dims? Dead end witch hunts. Continue to be the biggest losers.
