Democrat Presidential Candidates Are Openly Advocating for Communism

Communist policies that already are ravaging America include a state-controlled banking monopoly, a progressive income tax, and ‘free’ government schools. Democrats now are reviving other planks of the Communist Manifesto including Bernie Sanders’ proposal for an 77% inheritance tax.  Marianne Williamson and Pete Buttigeig have proposed one-year mandatory national service for all young people. Elizabeth Warren is calling for a steep ‘wealth tax’. The comrades are having a field day.

171 years ago, the Communist Manifesto was first published.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels filled the book with bold new ideas for how the working proletariat could rise up against the monied bourgeoisie.

At one point in the text, they write a check-list of the top ten goals of the communists.

This list included things like free public education, a progressive income tax, and a state-owned central banking monopoly.

That’s all been accomplished of course.

Then there are a few other goals which you might recognize as coming back into fashion these days.

For instance, Marx’s platform includes the “abolition of all rights of inheritance.”

Marx also advocated “Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.”

And number one on Marx’s top ten checklist was “Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.”

Marx would fit right in running for President amongst the current crowded field of “democratic socialists” clamoring to one-up each other with the most communist platform.

For instance, Bernie Sanders’ platform includes a top estate tax–aka inheritance or death tax–of 77%.

But that’s far from the only stale old idea Bernie Sanders has dug up.

Last month he announced his plan to overhaul housing and make it more affordable. This includes a 25% house-flipping tax. That, apparently to punish the people who buy crappy houses, fix them up, and sell them for a profit.

You already pay property taxes on land, which means it’s not really yours, you’re renting it from the government.

But now they think you should pay even more if you’re improving that property to sell. And Sanders wants an additional  “empty homes tax” of 2% on the total value of vacant houses.

Marianne Williamson and Pete Buttigeig have both proposed one year mandatory national service for young people.

Bill “your money’s in the wrong hands” de Blasio dropped out of the Presidential race, and went back to NYC where he’ll continue raising taxes on the people who have the nerve to invest millions of dollars in New York City property.

The wealth tax, proposed by Elizabeth Warren, was abandoned by Sweden after it didn’t work.

Virtually all the candidates are peddling some expansion of free education, whether it is giving away free college or erasing student debt. They all want the income tax to be even more progressive, with top rates of 70%+.

Current Presidential candidates aren’t proposing bold new ideas. They are rehashing old failed communist ideas.

But it’s not just communist theory that’s the problem. Countries have already tried putting the Communist Manifesto into practice.

Abolishing inheritance of property was actually one of the first things the Bolsheviks did in 1918 shortly after they came to power in Russia.

This, along with other policies to weaken the family, quickly created millions of homeless children.

Tony Podesta Is Let Off the Hook for Lobbying in Ukraine While Paul Manafort Rots in Solitary Confinement

The Department of Justice has completed its investigation and declined to bring charges against Tony Podesta, an influential Washington lobbyist and brother of Clinton Campaign manager John Podesta. The Podesta Group worked with Paul Manafort, lobbying on behalf of Ukrainian interests in the United States without registering under the Foreign Registration Act, which is a criminal offense. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager, was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison and has been in solitary confinement since early this year. Meanwhile, Podesta, a high level Democrat, receives a free pass. -GEG




Democrats Say the Red Flag Database for Gun Control Cannot Include Gang Databases, Despite Gangs Committing 80% of Gun Murders

Democrats advanced a new measure this week to encourage states to pass “red flag” laws authorizing the removal of guns and ammunition from individuals deemed as dangerous by any anonymous, unaccountable person, but it would not include the already existing lists of violent gang members. Republicans tried to add an amendment to include known gang members, but the Democrats will not permit it, despite the fact that gangs are causing most of the gun violence. The amendment failed. [This is further evidence that Congress has no interest in reducing violence in America but, instead, wants law-abiding citizens to be disarmed.] -GEG

Democrats advanced a new measure this week to encourage states to pass “red flag” laws. These so-called extreme risk protection orders authorize removing guns and ammunition from individuals deemed as dangerous by some anonymous, unaccountable person, but it would not include the ready-made lists of gang members.

Republicans tried to add an amendment including known gang members, but the Democrats will not permit the inclusion of gang databases. It’s odd since gangs are the ones causing most of the so-called gun violence.

They would agree to include the names of white supremacists, but not other terror groups.

The House Judiciary rejected any effort by Republicans to include gang databases since they are worried about people mistakenly taken for a gang member. They brought up the ‘no-fly, no-buy’ list which was filled with inaccuracies, but Rep. Ken Buck, a Colorado Republican, who hoped to amend the measure to include gang databases, reminded the Democrats the restrictions for placing someone on a gang database are much tougher than the no-fly list.

 

“This is a situation where the police officers are trained, and there are very identifiable signs, and it isn’t just one sign,” Buck told Chair Jerrold Nadler.

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, of California, offered to support the amendment if Buck agreed to include those listed “individuals affiliated with white nationalism.”

Buck agreed, but said the language should include “any type of supremacy.”

“Let’s add Costa Nostra to this,” Buck added.

Democrats were uninterested and the amendment ultimately failed.

At least 40 Babies Were Born Last Year But Allowed to Die. Why? Because They Survived Botched Abortions.

The Born Alive Protection Act would require that babies born alive following botched abortion receive medical care to save them, but the bill is opposed by Democrats in the House and Senate. State health data shows that 40 babies were born alive following botched abortions, but this number is unrealistically low because most states do not retain that data. -GEG




Hours Before Windows Were Shot Out at San Antonio ICE Facility, Protesters in Florida Hurled Threats against ICE Contractors.

Florida: Protest groups Never Again Action and Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County shouted threats at workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE for facility and detention space. One protester threatened GEO Group’s former general counsel John Bulfin, shouting out the locations and addresses of where his children live. The company performed the same services under Obama without such complaints, which suggests the demonstrations are politically motivated. [Democrats running for president want to abolish ICE because the Party is pushing for open borders so new voters can flip the electoral college, especially in Texas. If they succeed, they plan on winning all national elections forevermore.] -GEG

A group of open borders activists threatened employees of a government contractor in Florida that provides facility space for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to detain border crossers and illegal aliens the day before a shooting at the contractor’s offices in Texas.

In exclusive footage captured by Matt Perdie of Breitbart News, protesters with Never Again Action, Miramar Circle of Protection Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees, Food Not Bombs Fort Lauderdale, Students Working for Equal Rights, and the Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County shouted threats at workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE for facility and detention space.

One protester specifically threatened GEO Group’s former general counsel John Bulfin, shouting the locations and addresses of where his children live in the United States.

“We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester shouted. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”

“We know where you sleep at night,” another protester shouted. “We know what kind of dog food you buy your dogs.”

“We’re not actually joking,” the protester said before shouting the location of where Bulfin lives. “John Bulfin you go to [bleeped out], you go to church on [bleeped out], you live on [bleeped out the] road. We are not joking.”

The threats came just a day before gunmen allegedly fired shots into local ICE offices and GEO Group offices in San Antonio, Texas in what the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is describing as a “targeted attack.”

US: Democrat Senators Threaten Supreme Court to Either “Heal” or Face Drastic Restructuring

US: Democrats are upset that the Supreme Court currently has a conservative majority of 5-4. Democrat Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Richard Blumenthal, Mazie Hirono, Richard Durbin, and Kirsten Gillibrand, threatened the Supreme Court in an amicus brief to either “heal” or the public will demand increasing the number of justices so the present Conservative majority will become the minority. The threat was made in a case dealing with New York’s current gun laws, and the Senators are concerned the Court may come down against more gun control. -GEG

Several Democrat Senators issued a stunning warning to the Supreme Court this week — “heal” or face drastic restructuring.

 

The Supreme Court currently has a conservative majority of 5-4 so the Democrats are doing everything they can to change the court to shift the power in their favor.

The demand came in an amicus brief filed in court on Monday by Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Richard Durbin (D-Il), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) regarding New York’s current gun laws.

 

The brief blasted the Supreme Court as partisan toward conservative causes related to “voting rights, partisan gerrymandering, dark money, union power” and civil rights issues.

The Democrats’ lust for power is similar to what we saw with Stalin and Mao and they will do anything to shift power in their favor by “court-packing” by increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court.

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it,” the brief said. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’”

The Democrats referenced a recent Quinnipiac University poll in which a slight majority, 51% favored a restructuring of the Supreme Court and 55% believed the court was “motivated by politics.”

Joaquin Castro Doxxed Trump Donors and Their Employers, Exposing Them to Unhinged Leftists, to Intimidate Future Contributors


Democrat Texas Representative Joaquin Castro, who chairs the presidential campaign of his twin brother Julian, tweeted the names and employers of 44 San Antonia residents and businesses who maxed out their donations to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign. he cap on donations from individuals is $2,800, so the list targets affluent citizens, not millionaires. The congressman claims he is targeting voters who “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” -GEG

On Tuesday, Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, who chairs the
presidential campaign of his twin brother Julian, tweeted the names and
employers of more than 40 San Antonians who maxed out their donations to
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Mind you, the federal maximum is $2,800 per individual, so we’re not
talking about nefarious millionaires and billionaires or political
activists or public figures. The congressman doxed a bunch of regular
citizens whose only sin was displeasing Castro.

The congressman claims
he is targeting voters who “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels
Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” First of all, if Castro disagrees
with his fellow Texans on whether illegal immigrants are “invaders,” he
is free to try to change their minds. Instead he decided to sic every
unhinged progressive activist in Texas on these businesses, which, one
imagines, employ and serve plenty of people in his community.

Then again, Castro has no clue if these individuals support Trump’s
rhetoric on immigration or even if they support his position on the
borders. Maybe some of his victims maxed out because they’re happy with
the unemployment rate or like GOP’s tax policy. Or maybe they see the
election as a binary choice and prefer a demagogic president to a
leftist congressman who feels comfortable doxing his own
constituents? Who knows?

Not that it matters. I may believe that Castro is a lightweight
authoritarian, it still doesn’t mean I should post his family’s business
addresses on Twitter.

Many Democrats like Castro have adopted a political zealotry that
rationalizes basically any tactic they deem is necessary to fight Trump.
This, I guess, now includes intimidation. That’s because the purpose of
tweeting these names wasn’t merely to bully those who have already
donated to Trump, but to warn anyone in his district thinking about
contributing to Trump to consider the potential retaliatory public
attacks on their businesses (or worse.)

AOC’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, Has Come under Investigation for Possible Illegal Handling of more than $1-million in Campaign Donations – And He Has Resigned


Saikat Chakrabarti, the mastermind behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and proposed Green New Deal, resigned as her chief of staff last week at the same time as coming under federal investigation. Two PACs are being probed, Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats, both set up by Chakrabarti to support Marxist candidates across the country. More than $1-million in political donations was funneled into two private companies that Chakrabarti also incorporated and controlled. Both companies had similar names to the PACs. While PACs must follow stringent federal rules on disclosure of spending and fundraising, private companies are not subject to the same transparency. The $5,000 limit on contributions from PACs to candidates may have been violated. -GEG

The feds are looking into possible campaign finance misdeeds by Rep.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff and lead rainmaker, who
suddenly resigned Friday, federal sources told The Post.

The inquiry centers on two political action committees founded by
Saikat Chakrabarti, the top aide who quit along with Ocasio-Cortez
spokesman Corbin Trent, the sources said. Trent left to join the
congresswoman’s 2020 re-election campaign.

The brash Chakrabarti, who masterminded Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and
steered her proposed Green New Deal, had caused uproar in the halls of
Congress with a series of combative tweets that contributed to a rift between his rookie boss and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“People were not happy that he used his Twitter account to comment
about members and the bills that he and his boss oppose,” a senior House
Democratic staffer said. “There was a series of colliding and cascading
grievances.”

The two PACs being probed, Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats,
were both set up by Chakrabarti to support progressive candidates across
the country.

But they funneled more than $1 million
in political donations into two private companies that Chakrabarti also
incorporated and controlled, according to Federal Election Commission
filings and a complaint filed in March with the regulatory agency.

In 2016 and 2017, the PACs raised about $3.3 million, mostly from
small donors. A third of the cash was transferred to two private
companies whose names are similar to one of the PACs — Brand New
Congress LLC and Brand New Campaign LLC — federal campaign filings show.

Politicians Attempt to Use Mass Shootings to Win Votes While Ignoring Deeper Issues


Tucker Carlson comments on Democrat presidential candidates using recent shootings to condemn Donald Trump, “white supremacy”, and guns. They ignore deeper problems such as a decaying culture that lacks purpose. Young men now exist without communities, no fathers, no mentors, no instruction in useful trades, no productive activities, no opportunities for love and affection, and no way out. Suicide rates are the highest ever measured, millions are dependent on drugs, and 15% of millennials still live at home with their parents. Less than half of those between 25 and 34 are married, and a high proportion are not in any relationship at all.They feel helpless, miserable and alone. The American culture has been killed by its enemies.

70% of mass shooters show signs of mental illness. A former FBI profiler suggests that involuntary celibacy also is a contributing factor. [We are disappointed that this FBI expert makes no mention that almost all mass shooters are on prescription psychoactive drugs at the time of their rampages. These drugs carry warnings that side effects include impulses for homicide and suicide! We believe these drugs are the number-one cause of mass shootings.] -GEG





Stefan Molyneux Examines the Effects of Mass Migration in California and Confronts the Los Angeles City Council on the Cost of Offering Sanctuary


Stefan Molyneux traveled to California and reported that, while the state has the highest poverty rate in the country – estimated at 20% – plus massive debt and high taxes, it is spending 17% of its entire budget on illegal immigrants. A clip from a Los Angeles City Council shows a meeting where the Council voted unanimously to make LA a sanctuary. When Stefan spoke and explained that mass immigration is costly and asked the Council how they planned to pay for it, he was shut down. [Molyneux does a superb job exposing the insanity of Democracy in which everyone suffers under the illusion of unlimited resources where they see no reason to reject any proposal, no matter how expensive, so long as it is said to help someone. This is definitely worth watching.] -GEG




Hoax: Georgia State Representative Erica Thomas, a Democrat, Backpedals After Man She Accused of Racism Appears at Her Press Conference


Georgia state representative, Erica Thomas, tweeted that a white man verbally assaulted her in a grocery store by saying she was “a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from.” She later lamented in a Facebook video that “People are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff.” The accused man, Eric Sparkes, an immigrant from Cuba who hates Trump and votes Democrat, showed up at her press conference to challenge her story. He denied telling her to go back where she came from and said that the argument started over her using the express lane while having too many items. He accused her of “playing the victim for political purposes because she is a state legislator.” She has since backpedaled  her story.

Georgia State Rep. and Minority Leader Erica Thomas (D) took to Twitter on Saturday, saying a white man called her “a lazy SOB” and that she needed to go back to where she came from because she had too many items in the express lane at the local Publix.

Thomas explained her experiences further in a Facebook live video.

“People
are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff,” a
crying Thomas said in the video. “I’m at the grocery store and I’m in
the 10 aisle, the aisle that says ’10 items or less.’ Yes, I have 15
items but I’m nine months pregnant and I can’t stand up for long.”

“This white man comes up to me and says, ‘You lazy son of b**ch. You need to go back where you came from. And I said, ‘Sir, you don’t even know me. I’m not lazy. I’m nine months pregnant. He says, ‘You’re ignorant,'” Thomas explained. 

To make things even more interesting, the man Thomas accused of
making the comments, Eric Sparkes, showed up at her press conference to
challenge her story.

Democrat Hoax: Florida State Candidate Admits She Lied About Being a Doctor and Saving Victims of Shooting at Pulse Nightclub


Florida: Elizabeth McCarthy, a Democrat who was a candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, admitted that she lied about being a cardiologist and also lied about treating victims of the shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. The Florida Department of Health is charging McCarthy with violating state law by lying about being a doctor, under the state’s unlicensed activity statutes. She said, “I wanted to be somebody in the community, and I’m sorry.”

A gay Democrat former candidate for the Florida House of Representatives admitted that she lied about saving victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

The Florida Department of Health showed a statement by the woman, Elizabeth McCarthy, who pretended to be a cardiologist, Florida Politics reported.

The department is charging McCarthy with violating state law by lying
about being a doctor, under the state’s unlicensed activity statutes.

It’s seeking to fine her $1,000, plus costs. The department also is
serving her with a cease-and-desist order, prohibiting her from telling
anyone else that she is a medical doctor, according to documents
provided to Florida Politics following a public records request.

The formal investigation of McCarthy began after Florida Politics reported on  June 15 that
it could not confirm any of her claims to be a doctor, or that she had
been one of the medical heroes responding to the horrific June 12, 2016,
mass shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, where 49 people were killed
and 53 others were wounded.

She made the claims that she had tended to those who were shot at two events organized by Democrats in her state.

“It’s an honor to be in the medical field,” she said. “I love what I
do. I love helping people and giving better options to people — that’s
the best way I can say it.”

“It’s probably one of the hardest things of my career to work through,” she said. “I personally removed 77 bullets from 32 victims … It was like an assembly line.”
