The progressive takeover of
Democratic Party continues

President Biden, along with leading Democrats on Capitol Hill, started the year with the choice between two paths to govern. The first route, which I have strongly urged my party to take, is characterized with bipartisanship. Democrats carry this incredible opportunity to consolidate their power by reaching out to moderate Republicans to achieve legislative compromises at a time when Republicans are deeply fractured. This route would lead to further friction, however, with the growing progressive wing. It is clear that Biden and Democrats have chosen the second route, which involves embracing liberal policies and using their power to push through

Need to have the GOP start to identify those who say they're Progressive, as it's typically upper-income and white. Then, ask why so many are following a path, lead by white progressive, they likely don't agree with.

Note the language. There is nothing progressive about what is/has taking over the Democrat party. It is totaliarism and regressive.

FTA: One would hardly believe the bill was proposed by a moderate president who clinched his party nomination and the White House with his promise to unite the country. Doug, what is with the incredulous act? Biden is, and never was a moderate. Schoen is irritating. He is a liberal democrat, who makes a good living posing as a pragmatic middle of the road guy. Again, how many GOP candidates has Schoen ever endorsed? Has he ever made a donation to a Republican campaign? I am thinking of a number between -1 and 1.

Ugh....they are NOT "liberal" policies! And there is nothing progressive about the so-called Progressives!! They are all Leftists!! That includes Biden who is a Leftist Democrat. We must NEVER call them "liberal" again. They count on it because it helps them to continue to mislead the public. You may think it doesn't matter but it really does! Words are VERY powerful. The Left constantly manipulate the English language to (often subtly) shape people's perceptions and opinions. Using the word liberal makes people think the left is good and supports freedom, equality, liberty and all our great founding principles. But the left is just the opposite. They are controlling tyrants and megalomaniac. Please, please, PLEASE stop calling them and their policies "liberal" unless you support their manipulative and selfish cause.

"when Republicans are deeply fractured"? When one (looking at you Liz) splinters they get hammered by a unified GOP. The only fracture is between the US Electorate and Dominion Electronic Vote Manufacturing, Inc.

Sens. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Tuesday that they will vote against all of President Joe Biden's nominees they do not consider diverse, expressing frustration that his 15-person Cabinet has no Asian American and Pacific Islander members. "There’s no AAPI representation in the Cabinet," Duckworth told reporters Tuesday afternoon. "There’s not a single AAPI in a Cabinet position. That’s not acceptable. That’s what I told the White House." "I’ve been talking to them for months and they’re still not aggressive, so I’m not going to be voting for any nominee from the White House other than diversity

California's two Senators are pushing the Biden Administration to set a date after which automakers would no longer be allowed to sell gasoline-powered cars anywhere in the United States. The letter sent Monday by Sens. Diane Feinstein and Alex Padilla to President Joseph Biden urges him to "follow California's lead and set a date by which all new cars and passenger trucks sold be zero-emission vehicles." California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order in September requiring that all new passenger cars and trucks sold in the state be zero-emission vehicles by 2035.

Although the motive for the Boulder shooting is still unclear, authorities do not believe, at least so far, that it’s a terror attack, according to reporter Pete Williams, speaking on MSNBC. The suspect is Ahmad Alissa. Authorities did emphasize that the investigation is in its early stages, however, and the specific motive is not yet clear. The Syrian-born suspect was named by authorities in a March 23, 2021, press conference. “Why did this happen?” asked the District Attorney Michael Dougherty. He said that was not clear and is still under investigation. ”We are in the very early stages of the

The suspected Boulder shooter was reportedly paranoid and posted about racist Islamophobes before allegedly killing 10 including a cop. Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, has been charged after rampaging through a grocery store with an AR-15-style rifle, leaving 10 dead. Ali Aliwi Alissa, the suspect's 34-year-old brother, told The Daily Beast that Ahmad was "very anti-social" and, during high school, would describe "being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him."

America's worst adversaries are mocking, trolling and rebuffing the Joe Biden administration. In so doing, they would seem to be delivering a clear message: They neither fear nor respect America under President Joe Biden's leadership. Consider what has transpired over just the last week, barely two months into Biden's tenure. During the first day of a highly anticipated meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, with the world watching, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) brass responded to criticism of China's human rights violations from Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan by shoving anti-American agitprop back into the faces of

On Monday, Evanston, Ill., is set to become the first American city to provide reparations to some of its Black residents, marking a historic step toward restitution to African Americans who have been historically disenfranchised and discriminated against in the U.S. following over two centuries of slavery. While the idea of reparations for African Americans has long been met with some skepticism about its need and overall execution, leaders on the local city council say that this is the first step toward a “full repair” of racial injustices. “This is a first step in Evanston — one that I’m really

The NCAA is promising to bring better resources to the Women's Division I Basketball Tournament after videos and images of the women's facilities sparked outrage among fans and athletes online. Ahead of March Madness, student-athletes and coaches shared comparisons between the men's training facilities and a single rack of dumbbells and one stationary bike for the women. The NCAA initially blamed the lack of space and vowed to improve the conditions. Lynn Holzman, the NCAA's women's basketball VP, said the plan was to provide more space and equipment to teams that further advanced in the tournament. "We want to be

You might have noticed that you've been shelling out more for things like houses, gas, and cars. And it's been hard to get your hands on things like fitness gear, sofas, and roller skates. That's because America is reopening to a more expensive economy than the one that existed pre-pandemic. For now, it has a lot to do with a shortage of materials that manufacturers need to make these things. When supply is low, prices climb for manufacturers, and consumers end up paying more for the end product. The materials shortage has to do with several factors. The work-from-home economy

The first test of a project backed to spray millions of tonnes of chalk into the stratosphere, in an attempt to 'dim the sun' and cool the Earth, could happen in June. Harvard University experts will test the system by sending a large balloon 12 miles above the Swedish town of Kiruna and have it drop 2kg of chalk dust into the stratosphere. The aim of the estimated $3 million mission, backed by billionaire Bill Gates, is to have the chalk deflect a portion of the sun's radiation, stop it from hitting the surface, and cool the planet.

Officials also reiterated the unvaccinated people must be at low risk for severe illness or death from COVID-19.

While the last election is still fresh in the minds of most Americans, the next one is going to become an issue a lot sooner than most people think.

That and the historical fact that the first midterm for a newly minted president is almost always a bloodbath has Democrats dreading what looks to be coming.

Police arrested Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, of Arvada and charged him with 10 counts of first-degree murder, Boulder Police Chief Maris Harold said at a press conference. Alissa, who was shot in the leg, was in stable condition at an area hospital and was expected to be released later Tuesday, officials said.
