Posted on 07/20/2019 10:17:25 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
They are a match made in their political heaven. Tom Steyer and his money along with Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her Justice Democrats. As the 2020 election nears, they will be two of the generals in the Democrats civil war.
The party that loses the White House often struggles to find unity. When Barack Obama defeated John McCain, the Republicans struggled to find a unifying leader and a unifying message for years. With Trump in the White House and his 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, according to Gallup, Republicans are unified.
The Democrats are not.
On the contrary, the Democrats are in the midst a burgeoning civil war between three warring political armies.
Warring Faction No. 1: Nancy Pelosi and Democrats ruling the House of Representatives. Pelosi wants to hold onto the House for obvious reasons. The Republicans need to flip less than 20 seats (a low number by historical standards) to take control the House in the next election.
That could well happen given that more than 30 Democrat held seats that are in districts Trump won and there are 41 freshman Democrats. -- A freshmans first reelection tends to be their most vulnerable.
Mindful of all of that, Pelosi wants to steer her ship of state at least somewhat to the middle to hold onto the House.

They lost their last civil war!
When the communists start wanting to get credit for terrorism like Al Qaeda, is when you figure they were Al Qaeda in the first place
AOC doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together. Her handler, Chakrabooty, needs to be removed.
How awesome would that be?
Sounds good to me.
I hate to say it, but Ocasio-Cortez is going to run for president someday .
I hate her, as all of us do. But she has a certain “charisma” that the liberal side loves. She and her ilk are gaining power in the Democrat party.
I hope and pray for Trump to win in 2020 . But, in 2024 and beyond, we have to expect that there will be future Democrat presidents elected. And people such as Ocasio-Cortez are becoming leaders in that party.
Sure, given that Chackrabarti will be sending in plays from the sidelines. Part of AOC’s selection was her ability to improvise, but all her “good lines” are rehearsed. When she goes off-script on her own we get the Mystery of the Garbage Disposal” and the “Wailing Parking Lot Fence photo”.
Steyer is like Trump in that he’s got enough money that he doesn’t care what the Party thinks or wants him to say. He’ll just go on dropping turds for Nancy to have to clean up.
The article makes a good point: Pelosi should be calling the shots and instead she’d fighting a war on two or three fronts. At least in 2016 it was only against Bernie.
More like General Cluster.
She’ll be back to dancing on bars when this term is finished.
“...the Republicans struggled to find a unifying leader and a unifying message for years....”
The Republicans have DONE NOTHING since Reagan’s landmark accomplishments. They are still DOING NOTHING. And now that they actually have a REAL leader, they are rejecting him.
Self serving idiots.
The referenced article ignores that patriots elected PDJT in backlash to eight years of oppression under lawless Obama and worthless, post-17th Amendment ratification Congress imo.
Remember in November 2020!
MAGA! Now KAG! (Keep America Great!)
"The Holy Grail of organized crime is to control government power to tax." me
"The constitutionally undefined political parties are basically rival, corrupt voter unions, union dues paid by means of unconstitutional federal taxes. me
"The smart crooks long ago figured out that getting themselves elected to federal office to make unconstitutional tax laws to fill their pockets is a much easier way to make a living than robbing banks." me
"Federal career lawmakers probably laugh all the way to the bank to deposit bribes for putting loopholes for the rich and corporations in tax appropriations laws, Congress actually not having the express constitutional authority to make most appropriations laws where domestic policy is concerned. Such laws are based on stolen state powers and uniquely associated stolen state revenues." me
AOC is going to have a hard enough time keeping her House seat. She made the common mistake of turning herself into a national figure instead of paying attention to her own constituents. You can only get away with that for so long. Just ask Eric Cantor and Tom Daschle how that can cause trouble for a political career.
Should be a short war ‘cause they can’t think for sh*t.
OAC wants a civil war but to avoid needless bloodshed she has agreed to meet with Trump to propose that she gets New York, California, Oregon and Washington states as her territory where she will rule as a socialist. This way blood will be avoided and she gets to be a Spanish/Latino Queen, like Isabella. She thinks Trump will go for it because she hasn’t asked for Florida. AOC thinks she is very smart and humane to make this proposal. This ways she also gets to dictate to Pelosi as San Francisco will be part of her domain. If it works the Squad is also try it because they are clever too.
They will not b safe at any distance
More likely, in the approaching civil war, they will most likely be in the group of demons being used as "sharpness" testers for the guillotines that will be operating in towns all across America...
