The Atlantic Admits Impeachment Isn’t Hot Topic Out on Campaign Trail

You know it’s bad when even the attention-desperate 2020 Democrats are ignoring the impeachment debacle.

Published

on

Democratic constituents have been had.

At least, that’s the prevailing theory this week as the “formal impeachment inquiry” drags on toward its inevitable doom, inching ever closer to being neutered by the Senate in what will be a predictable and powerful referendum on the left’s political strategy.

Even the Democrats in Congress seem to be backing off of the idea that this “inquiry” will somehow change the national or political dynamic.  Their attempt to move beyond the UkraineGate whistleblower is evidence that they’ve already emptied their chambers and are now just hoping to see a bunch of bullet holes in the Trump 2020 campaign when the smoke finally clears.

This isn’t about removing the President via impeachment, it’s about running a 24/7 anti-Trump campaign ad via the mainstream media during this crucial period in our electoral process.

Further evidence of this deception can be found out on the campaign trail, where the 2020 Democrats aren’t too keen on discussing the inquiry in the least.

According to Edward Isaac-Dovere at The Atlantic:

The impeachment fight is all-consuming. It’s the biggest story in politics. No one is talking about anything else—except pretty much everywhere outside of Washington.

As the candidates arrived at the arena with their supporters, Beto O’Rourke headed to a park across the street in the cold, wet dusk to officially end a campaign that for him had become a long, frustrated scream about the country’s political crisis. As I waited for him, my phone rang with a call back from Gina Raimondo, Rhode Island’s governor and the chair of the Democratic Governors Association. She was headed to a big dinner herself in Providence, for the NAACP, where she was expecting to continue her week-long streak of not hearing a single person in her state bring up impeachment. That’s what makes her so worried about how the conversations on cable television and Twitter are impeachment-obsessed—instead of focused on the issues that Democrats usually win on. It’s not like voters are hiding what they most care about: health care, climate change, and the perpetual feeling that they’re working harder and harder but never making enough to get by. “Doctors say, ‘Listen to the patient long enough and they’ll tell you what’s wrong with them,’” Raimondo told me. “We need to listen.”

Somehow, Raimondo said, Democrats are expected to say that Trump has committed impeachable offenses and that they’re on board with how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving through the process, and also to not say anything about impeachment at all. The hyper-engaged and serious-minded may find this hard to accept, but even with every day’s news out of the White House seeming like a point-by-point rebuttal to The Federalist Papers, most Americans still see the chaos of the moment as another case of politicians in Washington fighting with one another—like when the Tasmanian Devil used to spin off in whirlwinds of fury while the rest of the Looney Tunes characters looked on.

The revelation that the Democrats are simply using this constitutional tool to build animosity against our President is spreading across our great nation, and will soon relegate the entire sham process to the waste bin where it belongs.

Republican Iraqi Refugee Running Against Omar Opens Up On Her Friendship With Ambassador Killed In Benghazi Raid

She makes a good point about the double standard of Obama’s invasion of Libya. He didn’t ask Congress first.

Dalia Al-Aqidi joined the Daily Caller’s Christian Datoc for a wide-ranging interview, in which she discussed her decision to run against Rep. Ilhan Omar, the media’s coverage of President Donald Trump, rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran, and her personal friendship with Christopher Stevens, the former U.S. Ambassador to Libya killed in the Benghazi raid.

TDC:

Dalia Al-Aqidi, a former White House correspondent, just announced she will be running on the Republican ticket against Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district.

Al-Aqidi joined the Daily Caller’s Christian Datoc for a wide-ranging interview, in which she discussed her decision to run against Omar, the media’s coverage of President Donald Trump, rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran and her personal friendship with Christopher Stevens, the former U.S. Ambassador to Libya who was killed in the Benghazi raid.

A refugee who is grateful for the country that took her in and let her spread her wings. Isn’t this how it always should be? It’s a shame this isn’t more common but I’m glad she has the right mindset. She’s had an amazing career and history. She embodies our American Dream.

She could be a good role model for refugees rather than Omar who’s crying about how persecuted she claims to be and how awful and racist she sees our country. Please Minnesota whoever wins this nomination, vote Republican and make Omar go 1 and out!

Joe Biden Makes Mention of Two Former 2020 Hopefuls as Possible VP Picks

But have we already seen enough of these also-rans?

Published

on

The sheer length of time that we’ve been examining the candidates for 2020 is, in and of itself, posing problems for the Democratic Party.

Dig long enough and you’re bound to find something, right?  For Joe Biden, there were seven women lined up to tell the world about his hair-sniffing, grope-y misbehavior before he even officially announced his candidacy, (but long after everyone understood that he would be running).  Kamala Harris was raked over the coals for her hard-nosed approach to marijuana offenders during her time as a prosecutor in California, with the now-Senator completely botching the response by laughing about it and making up a lie about partaking herself while listening to Tupac Shakur records in college.

Spoiler alert:  Tupac hadn’t released any music while Harris was enrolled in any college.

Despite the vigorous screening and mudslinging that has already occurred for some of these candidates, it appears as though current frontrunner Joe Biden is considering going back to this dry well for his VP pick.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would consider former presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Julián Castro to be a running mate or a member of his Cabinet if he is elected president.

O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman and high-profile 2018 Senate candidate, was an early frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination before fading into the field’s lower tiers and dropping out in early November. Castro, the former secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, ended his yearlong campaign earlier this month after struggling in the polls. Biden said he has spoken with both of them since their exits.

“My plea to both of them is that they stay engaged,” Biden said Wednesday in an interview with The Dallas Morning News. “They are talented, talented people.”

Biden also told The Sacramento Bee on Tuesday that he would consider another former 2020 rival, California Sen. Kamala Harris, for “anything that she would be interested in,” including vice president. Harris and Biden notably sparred on the debate stage early in the primary process, when the senator was critical of Biden’s past opposition to federally mandated busing to diversify schools.

This isn’t the wildest idea Biden has had about a possible VP however.

Earlier in the race, the former Vice President insinuated that he hadn’t ruled out a possible Republican running mate, shocking many of his die hard liberal supporters.

Trump Parrots Bernie Bros’ Conspiracy Theory About Impeachment and Rigged Primaries

Is Bernie getting the shaft again? Some believe so.

Published

on

Supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are under a very specific spell, cast by they “outcast” candidate himself.

It all began back in 2016, when Bernie was cheated out of the Democratic primary nomination by Hillary Clinton in a morally-reprehensible scam that rigged the entire process.  After Wikileaks was able to disclose the scheme, a great many of the Senator’s supporters simply stepped away from the Democratic Party itself, leaving Hillary Clinton to get trounced by Donald Trump in the general election.

From that moment on, Bernie’s campaign team has worked hard to maintain this “damn the man” attitude, characterizing Sanders as an anti-establishment revolutionary who they don’t want to win…whoever they are.

Of course, it should be noted that Sanders has been a career politician for decades, is an admitted millionaire, and owns a luxury lake house.

Still, he’s the perpetual underdog, thanks to clever marketing.

This characterization of Sanders has even spawned a number of conspiracy theories as to how the DNC and Democratic Party may try to cheat him again in 2020, including one that involves House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Commander in Chief explained:

President Donald Trump said Friday that Democrats were purposely helping former Vice President Joe Biden in the presidential primary by delaying the Senate impeachment trial.

“They are rigging the election again against Bernie Sanders, just like last time, only even more obviously,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Current Democrat Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar will be called back to Washington, DC, for the impeachment trial that is expected to begin next week. That means Democrats will be occupied in Washington for at least two weeks rather than campaigning in Iowa.

But Trump focused on Sanders as the biggest political victim of the impeachment calendar.

“They are bringing him out of so important Iowa in order that, as a Senator, he sit through the Impeachment Hoax Trial,” Trump wrote.

The unprecedented withholding of the articles of impeached by the aforementioned Pelosi until after the holiday break has set up these circumstances, leading many on the Bernie bandwagon to put stock in the theory that this was about bolstering Joe Biden – who has no such responsibilities back in Washington, allowing him to focus solely on Iowa in the coming days.

Warren and Sanders Share Testy Post-Debate Moment: ‘You Called Me A Liar’

The fiery moment could have major implications on the already tense race.

Published

on

Much has been said about the Democratic civil war that continues to rage, particularly in the realm of the 2020 race to the White House.

The left simply hates President Trump.  They loathe him.  They’ve even gone so far as to rage under the “resistance” moniker, as though they are some sort of unified force against the evil that they perceive in the President.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and one only needs to examine the 2020 field of candidates to realize this.

The most recent flare up among these progressive combatants has come from the far left side of the spectrum, with Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders now arguing with one another over something the latter may have said to the former in a private 2018 meeting.

As the story goes, Bernie told Liz that “a woman can’t win” in 2020.  Warren, who just this week saw Bernie eclipse her fully in Iowa’s polling, dug this gem out of her war room in order to force the issue onto the debate stage on Tuesday night.  When Sanders denied the claims, Warren was forced to confront him after the structured broadcast ended in a tiff caught on a hot mic.

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren told Sanders on stage after they both offered perfunctory “good job” greetings to other rivals, according to audio captured by CNN, which co-hosted the debate with the Des Moines Register.

“What?” Sanders replied, according to CNN’s report.

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” she said again.

“You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,” Sanders responded,

Warren replied: “Anytime.”

That appeared to have irked Sanders who then said: “You called me a liar.”

He added: “You told me — all right, let’s not do it now.”

Progressive Democrats have lamented the burgeoning feud, believing that this internal rift accomplishes nothing, and only bolsters the outlook of moderate candidates such as Joe Biden.

Bernie Bros Whining After ‘Rigged’ Debate…But Was This The Plan All Along?

The slighting of Sanders is playing right into the progressive politician’s hands.

Published

on

It appears as though the Bernie Sanders campaign is looking to score the sympathy vote ahead of the Iowa caucuses.

Sanders and his supporters have a chip on their shoulder after being unceremoniously cheated out of the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination by Hillary Clinton’s collusion with the DNC.  For many within the party, it was this unfathomable electoral meddling that allowed Donald Trump to easily trounce Clinton in the general election, as Democratic voters were simply disenfranchised and despondent after the rigging scandal was exposed by Wikileaks.

Bernie’s handlers certainly understand that his supporters are wary of yet another establishment assault on the Democratic Socialist’s 2020 run, and have already begun to whine about his treatment during last night’s televised debate…particularly at the hands of CNN, who seemed to be in rival Elizabeth Warren’s corner.

Of course, it stands to reckon that this may be all a part of the plan.

Sanders being “cheated” during the debate last night fits into the storyline that the Vermont Senator’s team has been working to construct; one of an anti-establishment outsider being completely stonewalled by a corrupt and archaic Democratic Party.

Make no mistake about it – Bernie’s campaign is relishing in the controversy, hoping to use this perceived slight to separate Sanders from the rest of the field who are allegedly colluding against him.

Russian Hackers Who Infiltrated DNC in 2016 Just Hacked Biden-Linked Burisma

Putin is back at it, hoping to again neuter Americans’ democracy.

Published

on

Mother Russia is sticking her nose back into America’s business yet again, this time rather blatantly attempting to influence yet another American election.

During the 2016 presidential election, the Kremlin waged a fairly serious war on American democracy, with their battles being fought on the fertile, young battlefields of cyberspace.  Not only were Russian hackers implying the tried and true methods of “phishing” and old-fashioned encryption-assault, but Putin’s ploy also included massive farms of online trolls, bots, and provocateurs who flooded social media with whatever messages the Kremlin wanted to see make headlines in the United States.

Now, as 2020 looms large, the same bad actors within the Russian cyber warfare space are at it again, and they are now presumably targeting Democratic nominee Joe Biden via his son Hunter’s job at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma.

Russian hackers recently targeted the Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of President Trump’s impeachment — and they succeeded in gaining access to its email accounts, according to California cybersecurity firm Area 1 Security.

The hackers are said to have infiltrated Burisma Holdings months after Trump urged Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who had served on Burisma’s board.

“What we’ve uncovered is that the same Russian cyber actors who targeted the [Democratic National Committee] in 2016 have been actively launching a phishing campaign against employees of Burisma Holdings and its subsidiaries, to try to steal their email usernames and passwords,” Area 1 co-founder Oren Falkowitz tells NPR’s Morning Edition.

Those involved were already infamous for their work in 2016.

The hacking operation was the work of the GRU, the Russian military spy agency, according to Area 1, which has published its findings online. The company says Russian hackers sent seemingly legitimate emails pointing to malicious websites that looked like authentic Burisma sites to try to dupe employees into sharing private login information.

Election interference has been a prevailing political topic in American for the better half of a decade now, and it doesn’t appear as though we’ll be rid of this menace for some time still.

Bernie Team Member Busted by Project Veritas Spouting Violent Rhetoric

One can only wonder if Sanders will be forced to respond to this revelation during tonight’s debate.

Published

on

They say that you are only as good as the people who support you, and if that’s that case, Bernie Sanders could be in serious trouble.

The Vermont Senator has suddenly found himself on top of the dog pile of Democratic candidates with only a few short weeks until the Iowa caucuses.  But, as with all things in our topsy-turvy political world, this newfound popularity is a double-edged sword, and anti-Bernie actors are coming out of the woodwork to torpedo the Democratic Socialist’s campaign.

First, there was the incredibly troubling assertion by the Elizabeth Warren campaign that Sander, during a private meeting back in 2018, said that “a woman can’t win” in 2020.

Now, just a day later, the undercover journalists over at Project Veritas have released a hidden camera video that shows a Bernie Sanders campaign worker admitting to some ridiculous and terrifying beliefs.

The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking an individual identified as Sanders organizer Kyle Jurek if “MAGA people” could be re-educated if Sanders wins the White House. “We gotta try,” Jurek replies. “In Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi Party, there was a s***-ton of the populace that was f***ing Nazified.”

“Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f***ing people to not be Nazis,” he continues. “We’re probably going to have to do the same f***ing thing here.”

“That’s kind of what all Bernie’s whole f***ing like, ‘hey, free education for everybody’ because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a f***ing Nazi,” he added.

And that’s not all…

The video also shows Jurek warning that Milwaukee, host of this year’s Democratic National Convention, will “burn” if Sanders fails to win the party’s nomination. “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f***ing Milwaukee will burn,” says Jurek. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other sites will f***ing [explode].”

The footage concludes with Jurek issuing the chilling prediction that Milwaukee could see riots akin to the 1968 convention in Chicago, where left-wing activists engaged in violent riots in the streets. “Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC convention. We’re going to make [1968] look like a f***ing girl’s scout f***ing cookout,” warns the Sanders field organizer. “The cops are going to be the ones f***ing beaten in Milwaukee.”

Bernie Sanders was colluded against during his 2016 campaign for the presidency by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, according to emails released by whistleblower organization Wikileaks.

This violent revolutionary rhetoric isn’t contained to just Jurek either.  In 2017, a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker named James T. Hodgkinson attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team, nearly killing Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise before being shot and killed by Capitol Police.
