While there, the 30-year-old lawmaker claimed that the United States lacks a “left party” politically. "We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party," Ocasio-Cortez said. "The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party."We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party,"

The Democratic party is a 'center-Conservative' party? Compared to what? Cold war Russia? Mao's China? The United States doesn't have a true leftist party? What would it be modeled after? Venezuela? The only reason AOC is in Congress is because the people that elected her are just like her. Sad really.

President Trump said climate activists were out-of-touch 'alarmists' and the 'heirs of yesterday's fortune tellers' during his appearance at the World Economic Forum, as prominent climate activist Greta Thunberg looked on. 'This is not a time for pessimism. This is a time for optimism,' Trump said in Davos, Switzerland Tuesday, in stark constrast to Thunberg and others, who used the conference to warn that the Australian wildfires and other disasters were only the beginning of the climate chaos that lie ahead. To 'embrace the possibilities of tomorrow,' Trump said, 'we must reject the perennial prophets of doom

An Iranian lawmaker apparently has placed a $3 million bounty on President Trump’s head. Ahmad Hamzeh made the declaration Tuesday during a speech to parliament in Tehran, although it’s unclear whether it has any backing from Iran’s top leaders, Reuters reported, citing the ISNA news agency.“On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump,” Hamzeh was quoted as saying. (Photo) The city of Kerman was the hometown of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike on Jan. 3. Fox News has reached out to the State Department for comment.

Here’s what to expect when President Trump’s historic impeachment trial begins in DC on Tuesday. At 1 p.m., the US Senate will convene as a court of impeachment, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will outline his rules for the trial.The ensuing hearings are then expected to consist of grueling 12-hour sessions each day. They will be held six days a week, from Monday to Saturday. McConnell (R-Ky.) has repeatedly said he wants to put the kibosh on Democrats’ repeated demands for witnesses and bullishly suggested the trial may be over in as little as two weeks, just in time for President Trump’s State of the Union address
Conservatives Need to Stop
Playing Defense

Posted by Imright 1/21/2020 7:44:57 AM Post Reply
The problem for conservatives debating progressives and leftists is that those on the far left always choose the playing field. Using a sports analogy, progressives wisely choose a baseball field for a confrontation, putting conservatives at a decisive disadvantage. Conservatives need to stop playing progressives in baseball and start playing them in football. Think about it: In football, your opponent can start out with the ball on offense, but suddenly have it taken away by a pass interception or by recovering a fumble. Now, your team is on offense and in a position to score.

DES MOINES, Iowa—The Iowa electorate may be overwhelmingly white, but the tough questioning Pete Buttigieg received at a minority voter forum is indicative of the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor's struggles with expanding his narrow voter base.Buttigieg's issues began during Monday afternoon's question-and-answer session, when two moderators from Vice News grilled him for 15 minutes over his brief governing record. Of specific interest was his role in overseeing South Bend's police force, which has been the target of activists over perceived racial bias.When asked why nearly half of the city's black police officers left the force under his tenure as mayor, Buttigieg, noticeably uncomfortable, was forced to admit

The rally Monday that drew an estimated 22,000 Second Amendment supporters to the Virginia State Capitol on a frigid Martin Luther King Day was portrayed in advance by the media as a gathering of white nationalists and racists.Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam — who, ironically, remains in office despite a humiliating blackface scandal — declared a state of emergency in anticipation, and at least one journalist said it would be a “white nationalist rally.”But in the end, it was a peaceful gathering, live-streamed to millions on Breitbart News’ website and Facebook page.
