Democrat civil war widens

Less than 3 minute read

July 15, 2019

Over the weekend, a cataclysmic storm continued to build, threatening massive destruction.  I don’t mean the hurricane in the Gulf, but the escalating battle in Congress between the old line House Democrats (the “hide what we really believe until after the election” faction) and the regressive “progressive” Democrats who’ll come right out and tell you they want open borders, sky-high taxes, no prosecution of criminals, no deportations of illegal aliens, and socialism replacing capitalism.  They think that’s a winning platform, while the old line Democrats think it’s the kind of platform that drops out from under you when you get hanged.

That link recaps some of what led up to this, plus the latest development in which Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, suddenly catapulted from the shadows to center stage by accusing other Democrats – including black and Native-American Democrats – of being racists and white supremacist sympathizers.  This is what happens when you develop a bad habit: you just can’t stop doing it even when it makes no sense whatsoever. 

(To refresh your memory, Chakrabarti is the guy who’s usually photographed wearing a T-shirt with the face of a radical, Nazi-sympathizing Indian leader on it.  He's a ringleader of the Justice Democrats, the far-left group that got AOC elected and hopes to repeat that nationwide using the same strategy: target low-turnout Democratic primaries in one-party districts and run stealth campaigns for radical leftists who defeat incumbents whose supporters assumed they’d win so they don’t bother to show up at the polls.  This is how America got AOC in Congress, thanks to just 16,898 primary voters in a Bronx district with nearly 700,000 residents.  I plan to keep warning people about that until the word gets out, so we can stop the rising tide of America-hating Congress members and D.A.’s who refuse to prosecute 90% of crimes.) 

This is great spectator sport for Republicans, but it’s not healthy for one of the parties in a two-party system to be tearing itself apart, particularly when its young up-and-comers are ignorant of history and want to impose policies that have been proven tragic failures everywhere they’ve been tried. 

And while Speaker Pelosi and her supporters try to tamp them down and point out that they are only four votes in the House, this news must send chills down her spine:

A poll taken in May (even before all the publicity over the Dems’ civil war ramped up) of swing voters that the Dems will need to win back from Trump found that the Democrat whose name they most recognized was AOC.  Among swing voters, 74% knew AOC, and 22% approved of her.  Likewise, 53% knew Ilhan Omar, and 9% approved of her.  Also, 18% viewed socialism favorably, and 69% disapproved of it.

Remember how I told you that the far-left platform was like the platform you get hanged from?  Well, if the Dems who mount that platform do swing for it, then it may be swing voters dropping the trap.

    Just looking at that picture of AOC, I couldn't help getting a picture in my own mind of an incoming airplane taking off a chip of the end of her stuck-up SO high nose!

    I actually know God has a hand in our future and is helping us Christians defeat the enemy yet again by revealing the true colors of the Liberal far left Democrats. All their donors are now going to prison with all of their immoral lifestyles, now all we need help with God. Is sending the master minds behind this to prison, Obama, Hillary, Bill, Comey and the rest of the DNC gang.

    Give them a little more rope and they will hang themselves and it can't happen fast enough for me. It's hard for me to swallow that these people are both ignorant and stupid. If I could I'd put all of them in Venezuela for a while. This is what happens though when our schools are taken over by progressives and Islamic outsiders. They are rewriting our history so the younger generation has no conception of socialism.

    Since they have no good platform to offer the American people, the Democrats (liberals) are trying to establish a welfare state block of voters through the have-nots and every other source whether it be illegals from almost any other country, scheme, mechanism and lie that they can muster, whether it be district representation, non-registration, prisoners, calling privileges "rights", fraudulent poll practices, violence or whatever mayhem they can think up.
    You will notice that they do not speak to the issues because they can not improve on what President has done these last 3 years, so they rely on name calling and churning up trouble to distract the American people from the real concern which is the actual welfare of our country. This is the only reasoning that I can come up with for torpedoing Amazon under AOCs watch. If the liberals were interested in earning their own livelihood, so that those who live there, would not be dependent would not be dependent on the government for their living.
    May God damn these socialists for trying to ruin this country to further their own ends.

    Governor: Your statistics and article should be nothing less than a major wake-up call to true conservative, patriotic, USA loving Americans. AOC elected to Congress with 16, 898 votes in a district with 100,000 residents!!! And Ilham Omar-DEMOCRAT from Michigan receiving only a 9% approval rating and AOC a 22% approval rating. Will the voters in these area wake up. Again, its not just these two, but look around the country and everywhere that the Democrats are in office, they are destroying our country, projecting their hate towards America and Americans, because America isn't what they want it to be to fit their socialist ideology. What have the Democrats done for our nation since they took over the House. They have spent 99% of their time talking impeachment, Russian collusion, Trump is bad for America, etc. Wake up America and stop electing Democrats and stop electing these young socialist ideologist who want to see Obama agenda of destroying America from within to continue.
    Todd Starnes reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mn) at a recent conference hosted by Netroots Nation said she "is ashamed of U.S. living in hypocrisy". Who's hypocrisy- ours or hers (what is in her mind and agenda)
    America is in trouble and its is going to take true Americans, deplorables, patriots to take this country back. Todd Starnes reported that in Aurora, Colorado several thousand protestors took down an American flag and raised a Mexican flag outside a detention center for illegal invaders. Later they raised a thin blue line flag with anti-police messages on it. It was a shameful display of being a lawless city supporting the disrespect towards our nation and police.
    And right now President Trump is being attacked for his tweets about AOC, Omar and two others in Congress. Maybe the tweets were unnecessary or inappropriate, but I do not think they were racist as he is being accused of. We know that the left immediately uses what ever label they can to turn around and accuse those who don't agree with them. This was just one more example. Our president loves America and I can't imagine how frustrated he must be to see some in Congress including these four who are an embarassment. But they are more than that, their goal was to infiltrate our Congress to push their hatred and ideology towards the President and our nation. So, the President was saying in a way, "if you don't like America the way it is and you don't like our values, our Constitution, etc., you can always leave." And only Republican Lindsey Graham stood up for the President. Once again, where's the other Republicans. Can't they figure out that there is strength in numbers or are they just going to be a door mat for the Democrats and their evil nation destroying agenda?
    If you don't think there is an agenda by some to destroy America, then take the time to read Todd Starnes book " Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left from Killing a Nation" or Michael Youseef's book "The Third Jihad". Some in Congress are part of those who are trying to kill our nation and the Democrats and the mainstream media are all on the same page. Are they going to come right out and say that- no, but they do so with their ideology of open borders, sanctuary cities, sanctuary states and socialism over capitalism- all a goal to destroy the America that we know and push their evil ideology on us. Wake up America before it is too late !!!

    well, those 4 votes can be removed if we work at it and inform people of them. Good idea Mike, Let's let their approval rating go to zero next Nov. They are so out of touch with the world that we don't need them anywhere. Of course the libs are gonna have to do something too. Not sure what but...

    my comment is about straws. I will believe that the libs really want to save the planet when they ban disposable diapers. Just think about the millions maybe billions of filthy diapers full of , let's call it stuff, filling our land fills & oceans. but, of course, they won't because they like the disposables & might have to go back to washing the diapers by hand.

    I think your idea to remind people to vote is important. You have the means to educate us---in this article today I personally will tell my friends about what you wrote. As a member of NAMLE I will ask the leadership to focus on media literacy goals that relate to Citizenship, voting and taking responsibility to vote. In past years we have kits for teachers in classroom that have focused on what a good citizen is and is expected to do to keep our Constitutional Republic strong and free. Since our media is not doing the job to educate and our big name colleges are so interested in money and diversity, we should look at non-profits like Judicial Watch, Heritage Groups, MCR and all Religion non-profits to help the populace understand what is going on. I keep remembering my tough World History teacher explain how the Communists to over her country and it scares me to see the same tactics being used here in the US. They have attacked Family, Religions, and History. Secularism has a dark side. We must learn to pray and ask the Lord to give us what we need not what we deserve.

    I'm with President Trump! AMERICA - Love it or LEAVE it! I'm sick and tired of being called all these hyphenated 'phobics' so I've coined a new name for all these bomb-throwing pukes:
    AMERI-PHOBICS! You're welcome to use it to describe anyone you feel deserves the tag! Sam

    The only thing that disturbs me as much as AOC's positions is she get so much air time.

    If 90+% of her supporters knew what she stands for, they wouldn't vote for her. 

    It's the same rhetoric that got Chavez put in office in Venezuela. It sounds good on the way down, but it ends up in tyranny.

    What keeps people like Chavez & Madura in power in Venezuela? They control the airways & the financial pockets. Venezuela is a rich place for 30% of people. It's the rest of the 70% who suffer. It's one of the worst places as far as crime in the world.

    And here we have our own AOC, who promotes her more than anyone is the right.

    We don't like her (professionally) and see her as a threat to the freedoms that we enjoy. We're promoting them by using her as a poster girl.

    To be sure some people will always be behind her and actors like her, because they don't believe in the society and culture they have grown up in.

    But what causes the conditions of an AOC? The answer is simple: the educational and entertainment systems of our culture.

    It goes deeper than that for sure, but the main thing is we need to defeat her as soon as possible. Make her a one-hit wonder. Then we can all sleep at night for at least a week, until the next challenge comes.

    I'm a Christian old guy "just passing thru". In my lifetime I have never seen so much disrespect for the office of our president and God. I am on my 5th trip thru the ENTIRE bible reading from beginning to end. The Old Testament in my humble opinion shows us what God will do to those who do NOT follow His laws. Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and today they are being disregarded from not allowing Bibles in VA hospitals to banning praying in public. In my readings God did not want the Jewish people to inbreed with those they conquered fearing His people would become polluted with disregard His laws and start worshiping idols and with other forms of religions and laws. The Jews became a conquered people after disregarding God's laws being sold into slavery with their cities and temples destroyed. The Old Testament in my humble opinion is also a history lesson from God as to what He will do to those not following His laws. "Those who do not study history often times repeat history's mistakes with the same consequences". This I see happening today, here. Amos in the Old Testament is a fine example of what happens when people DO NOT follow God's law. God's wrath is coming because of the inbreeding in our government with cultures against His inspired laws as written by our founding fathers in the Bill of Rights. These are written in plain English which words in my opinion "should not be added to or taken away" (from the Bible). God's laws are all being violated every day in Congress .Better order loads of dirt for our founding fathers graves as they are turning over and over from what's happening today in Congress from the so called "progressives".
    Just my opinion from an old guy just passing thru to a better place

    Gov. Huckabee,
    Well said, I live in NYC and many people I know cannot tolerate AOC. I blame the Democratic machine that took that election for granted. She is making hard working people in NYC look like fools. And whoever voted for her is a fool.

    PROGRESSIVE as defined by a REPUBLICAN, by a DEMOCRAT, by a SOCIALIST, by a COMMUNIST, by a CONSERVATIVE, by a LIBERAL, by a RADICAL. The end resuts of being progressive in Cuba...Venezuala.....and North Korea ain't so hot

    Mike....Sometimes I wonder where AOC came from and how she managed to win an election! Yikes! And yet I sense there is a "movement" to multiply her effect. Ironically, I listened to a radio program yesterday featuring a conservative commentator who was talking about the exact same "movement" that you are describing with Saikat Chakrabarti. Apparently AOC answered a casting call and was maneuvered into Congress. As you say, they are targeting complacent, typically one-party dominant districts to insert their people. Socialism is their goal. They promise "freedom" (essentially freedom from college, health care, housing, income, etc.). Eventually that type of government will run out of other peoples money to provide those entitlements, but the public will already be dependent upon them and under their control. Conservatives, however, should be promoting LIBERTY...the right and opportunity to come together and decide how we choose to be governed...the way our founding father's intended.
    We cannot be complacent and stand by watching this ploy take place. It will require us to become involved, informed, and make other like-minded people aware of what is taking place. And a good dose of American history might awaken a fresh sense of patriotism that has been lost on so many!! May God bless our nation.

    Excellent article. Have you noticed that the group of four democrat women including AOC have taken on the same role as the young girls in the Salem Witch Trials? They emote crazy passion in order to accuse others and stir up people.

    those "rookies" need to understand that theirs' is a speech of hatred; If you don't think like them they hate & slander you. I am Native American (Cherokee)...and my new movement, if I knew how to start one would be (after the Dems say that the ICE raids were FEAR MONGERING): #FEAR ME...I am a USA CITIZEN. I approve of the job this current Predisent is doing and Ronnie would be proud of him!

    I am a baby boomer and remember back in the day you did not hear of this evil nonsense! What I am saying Mike Huckabee you are a great man of God and integrity and courage and your daughter Sarah Huckabee is a chip off your shoulders which is of course a great blessing! I think the majority of our pastors need to be more bold on preaching today about anti abortion and how close we are until Jesus Christ returns! Maybe I am being a bit overbearing but I feel we as Christians must stand firm in Christ to get America back on track. Donald Trump is the best president we have had in decades and he as you know is trying everything possible to do just that. But he is of course human and needs our continued support and continue praying! God bless you Mike Huckabee. My wife and I live in Nashville Tennessee and love your show on TBN.
