Clinton Pokes Nose into 2020 Race to Call Warren and Sanders’ Tax Plans ‘Disruptive’

This, coming from the woman who got caught rigging the 2016 primaries.

Published

on

There is a serious air of discontent surrounding the 2020 Democratic primaries, and it is now breeding desperation within the party itself.

Those who have so far thrust themselves into the election spotlight have done little to invigorate the progressive party. There is a 4 way tie at the top currently, and none of those involved can match the favorability of President Donald Trump – even while he faces the threat of impeachment.

Smack dab in the middle of this quartet are Senators Liz Warren and Bernie Sanders, of Massachusetts and Vermont, respectively, and whose views border on socialism outright.  Their success would be seen as a massive leap to the left for the Democrats, and the old guard is none too happy about it.

Failed 2016 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton issued a warning on Wednesday, asserting at the New York Times‘ DealBook conference that both Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) plans to hike taxes on the ultra-wealthy would be “incredibly disruptive.”

Clinton appeared at the DealBook conference this week and dismissed both Warren’s and Sanders’ plans to tax the wealthy, suggesting their proposals are “complicated” and would not work in the long run.

“I just don’t understand how that could work, and I don’t see other examples anywhere else in the world where it has actually worked over a long period of time,” Clinton said.

Both Warren and Sanders have unveiled radical redistribution plans as key features of their presidential platforms. Warren’s “Ultra-Millionaire Tax” targets individuals with more than $50 million in assets, levying a two percent tax, which goes up to three percent for those with more than $1 billion in assets. However, her $52 trillion Medicare for All plan increases the taxes on the ultra-wealthy, “asking billionaires to pitch in six cents on each dollar of net worth above $1 billion.”

Of course, Clinton doesn’t speak for a vast majority of the Democratic Party at this point, after being shunned for her role in a  scheme to rig the 2016 primaries.

Democratic Operatives Admit to Rooting for Stalled Economy to Oust Trump in November

This is a low-blow that the Average Joe simply cannot afford to let slide, just because the Democrats are looking to slide Sleepy Joe into the Oval. 

Published

on

The Democratic Party is very desperately attempting to force Joe Biden into the White House in November, (whether Biden realizes it or not), and it’ll take all the help they can get to be successful.

You see, the American people chose Donald Trump on account of his “outsider” status in Washington.  They didn’t want more of the same, and they certainly weren’t interested in the status quo.  If they had been, they would have come out in force for Hillary Clinton.

Spoiler alert:  They did not.

Now the Democrats are coming to the sinking conclusion that they can’t simply elevate Biden into the pole position, but that they’ll have to take Trump down a notch too….and it sounds like they’re willing to sacrifice the prosperity of everyday Americans in order to do that.

Politico reports that Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a Harvard professor, told a bipartisan group of policymakers last month that “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.”

The claims may seem counterintuitive amid the bleak economic picture right now. But it’s premised on assumptions that as lockdowns ease, a recovery could follow more quickly than after past economic crises. Since his earlier prediction, Furman has reportedly also been making the case to Democrats, including top members of presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s campaign.

“This is my big worry,” a former Obama White House official told the outlet, who said of the concern about top members of the party: “It’s high — high, high, high, high.”

This is a low-blow that the Average Joe simply cannot afford to let slide, just because the Democrats are looking to slip Sleepy Joe into the Oval.

Joe Biden Exhibits Gruesome Predatory Behavior Toward Children at White House

It wouldn’t be surprising to see this video scrubbed off of the internet in the coming days.

Published

on

As we grow ever nearer to the 2020 election, the war between the aisles will be amplified by any number of operatives, from any number of angles.  Now that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, he is bearing the full weight of these myriad attacks.

First and foremost, there are concerns about his age, and just how it’s affecting his mental health.  A great many politicians, including President Trump himself, have insinuated that perhaps the former Vice President isn’t cognitively capable of leading the nation from behind the desk in the Oval Office.

Beyond his gaffes and misspeaking engagements, Biden has also been exhibiting a temper that the nation hadn’t really seen from him before.  At one campaign stop prior to the current global pandemic, Biden called an attendee both “fat” and “a damn liar”.  At another, he referred to a woman in the audience as a “lying , dog-faced pony soldier”.

According to some, Biden’s behavioral problems run far deeper than that, and may even border on the unspeakable.

Biden’s strange proclivity for sniffing hair has been discussed at length over the course of the campaign, and wife Jill Biden spoke at length about Joe’s family being a very physical group after a number of women came forward to say that they were inappropriately groped or held by the longtime politician.

Biden also stands accused of sexual assault by a former staffer named Tara Reade, whose story has been partially corroborated by a number of witnesses.

Whining Never-Trump Losers Now Want a ‘Counter-Convention’ to Attack Trump

A cadre of the loudest former conservative Never-Trump whiners are gathering to hold a “counter-convention” to attack Trump.

Published

A cadre of the loudest former conservative Never-Trump whiners are gathering to hold a “counter-convention” to attack Trump ahead of the 2020 election cycle.

Losers led by Edward McMuffin… I mean Evan McMullin… are desperately trying to organize a stunt event that they hope will detract from the Republican National Convention coming up in August.

Continuing their four-year temper tantrum, McMullin and his loser cohorts have announced plans to steal the GOP convention’s headlines with their own little soirée.

But the silly attempt to detract from the real event that will re-nominate Donald Trump as the Republican candidate for president is already looking like the joke that it will be. Why? because it is not really an event at all, but just a online trolling of the Republican Party.

The stunt is being called the “Convention on Founding Principles,” and apparently it will just be a little seen, livestreaming program that will air on the Internet during the GOP convention.

McMuffin and crew are hoping that enough people sign up on the event’s webpage to make it worth doing, but how much you want to bet this thing never comes off at all because of lack of interest?

McMuffin suffered a very embarrassing defeat in 2016 when certain members of the intelligentsia in Washington’s purported conservative media clique (like anti-Trump loon Jonah Goldberg, and failed magazine publisher Bill Kristol) tried to float him as the big answer to Donald Trump.

But McMuffin’s candidacy was met with a yawn in voting booths all across the nation. Indeed, the only state he got any real notice in was his home state of Utah, where he came in third on Election Day. It should be remembered that Utah sent traitor Mitt Romney to the Senate.

This ragtag group of court jesters have also pledged to work against Republicans all across the nation. Not that anyone will notice.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Erin Perrine had just the right words for them. When asked about McMuffin’s little “convention,” Perrin characterized McMuffin’s gang as a bunch of “irrelevant losers.”

Yeah. That about covers it.

Democrats Toss Aside ‘Small Donor’ Loyalty to Court Big Biz as Biden Bombs

The event truly serves only one purpose, however:  Telegraphing the utter desperation of the Democratic Party in 2020. 

Published

We’ve all known for months now that Joe Biden is in some serious trouble as a 2020 candidate.

The former Vice President’s first Democratic sin was being someone other than Bernie Sanders.  You see, Sanders’ faithful followers are a rather large contingent within the Democratic Party itself, and when the Party stepped away from him, so did many of his followers.

Biden has also been a complete and utter mess out on the campaign trail.  His propensity for embarrassing gaffes isn’t anything new, but some of the things that have come out of his mouth in recent weeks are on an entirely new level of mental instability than we’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics.

Then, to top it all off, the former Vice President has been credibly accused of sexual assault by a former staffer, forcing many within the Democratic establishment to openly admit that they don’t actually care about the allegations, just so long as he can beat Donald Trump in November.

And that brings us to today, as it was revealed that Senator and former 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren is simply giving up on her earlier vow to court only small donors in 2020, and workin on a large, corporate fundraiser meant to keep Biden competitive.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren – who during her White House bid repeatedly forswore top-dollar fundraisers with wealthy donors – will host such a gathering for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden next month.

The move comes as the progressive senator from Massachusetts is considered one of the contenders to be the former vice president’s running mate.

The virtual fundraising event, which is scheduled to be held June 15 and was first reported by The New York Times, was confirmed by Fox News.

The event truly serves only one purpose, however:  Telegraphing the utter desperation of the Democratic Party in 2020.

Liberal Congresswoman Suggests Biden is Guilty of Sexual Assault, But That It Doesn’t Matter

This sickening hypocrisy is yet another reason why America is in the throes of a conservative awakening.

Published

on

As Donald Trump worked his way toward the White House back in 2016, there were an inordinate amount of claims being made against him – not the least of which was that he was a sexist who despised women.

This fervor was only accelerated by a bit of “locker room talk” that came to light between Trump and Billy Bush during a hot mic moment on the Access Hollywood bus, and that became the talk of the political ecosystem for years.  There are still Democratic operatives who like to pepper in talk of this incident today, nearly half a decade later.

But when it comes to Joe Biden being credibly accused of sexual assault, the left side of the aisle has been nearly silent.  When they do speak out about the allegations made by Tara Reade, they often do so in a dismissive tone.

Now, as if to up the ante on hypocrisy itself, freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has stated that she believes that Biden is guilty of sexual assault, but that she doesn’t think this is a disqualifying issue.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday said she will vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election while insisting that she believes his former Senate staffer Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault.

“Believing survivors is consistent with my values,” Omar wrote on social media. “Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”

With nowhere left for the Democrats to turn in terms of a candidate, one would imagine that a great many more Democrats will soon be attempting to walk this very same tightrope.

As Biden Continues to Stumble, Trump Unloads on His Mental Capacity

POTUS just unloaded on the former veep, as the Democrats continue to hesitate on replacing Biden on the 2020 ticket.

Published

on

We are invariably headed toward one of the wildest presidential elections in decades, as a Washington outsider prepares to electorally eviscerate one of the Washington swamp’s most notable elders.

For the Democrats, their plan is falling apart.  They saw Joe Biden as a hypothetical return to normalcy for the nation after 4 years of the bombastic, Beltway wrecking ball that Donald Trump represents.  The left believed that Trump was a flash in the pan, and that the nation would want to revert back to the status quo after his first term.

Spoiler alert:  They Don’t.  And, even if they did, the constant verbal stumbling of Joe Biden doesn’t inspire any sort of confidence.  If you take even a cursory look at Twitter these days, there are no shortage of tried and true Democrats calling for the former VP to be replaced on the 2020 ticket on account of his crumbling mental acuity.

President Trump is no longer beating around the bush, either.

When asked during a Sunday interview with WJLA what Biden’s strongest feature was as a political opponent, Trump noted that he could have said experience but explained why he did not think it was appropriate.

“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” Trump said. “So how is that experience? He’s been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.”

The Commander in Chief then went for the jugular.

The president then started by saying that Biden is “not mentally sharp enough to be president.” He then went on to say that the former vice president has problems with China and Russia, but then jumped back to attacking Biden’s intellect.

“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” Trump continued. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.”

The statement comes just days after Biden told a popular African American radio host that “you ain’t black” if you’re considering voting for Donald Trump – a gaffe that has sent shockwaves throughout the Americans political punditry.

Joe Biden Claimed Amazon Does Not Pay Enough Taxes, They Hilariously TORCH Him in Reply

Joe Biden claimed that online retail giant Amazon does not pay enough taxes. But the company struck back in a reply torching Biden for his idiocy.

Published

On Friday “Slow Joe” Biden claimed that online retail giant Amazon does not pay enough taxes. But the company struck back in a reply torching Biden for his idiocy.

Biden took a swipe at Amazon in a Tweet on Friday, claiming that the company does not pay “its fair share.”

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No company pulling in billions of dollars in profits should pay a lower tax rate than firefighters and teachers,” Biden tweeted. “It’s time for Amazon to pay its fair share.”

In his tweet, Biden linked to a CNBC story that reported his remarks given on Friday morning during an interview.

“I don’t think any company, I don’t give a damn how big they are, the Lord almighty, should absolutely be in a position where they pay no tax and make billions and billions and billions of dollars, No. 1,” Biden said in the interview. “The whole notion of this is: Are you playing the game fairly? What’s the capitalist system all about? The capitalist system is about everyone dealing fairly and dealing straight up with the American people and with their employees.”

This is a perfect example of Biden pandering to the anti-capitalist left.

But Amazon — run by huge Democrat donor Jeff Bezos — did not sit quietly by and let Joe get away with his attack on the company.

Amazon responded to Biden’s remarks saying: “Joe Biden, we pay every cent owed. You spent 3 decades in the Senate & know that Congress wrote these tax laws to encourage companies to invest in the US economy. We have. 500k jobs w/ a min wage of $15/hr across 40 states. Assume your complaint is w/ the tax code, not Amazon.”

Well, the company is 100 percent right on that one.
