    Division: Much in the way the Republican Party was splintered by the Tea Party faction in 2010, the Democratic Party is now undergoing its own internal convulsion: Socialists are winning enough elections to shake party leadership. Another Democratic Socialist candidate won a tough primary race in New York City this week against an 11-term state senator.

    French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist LREM party is neck-and-neck with the far-right Rassemblement National, formerly the National Front, for the May 2019 European Parliament elections, according to poll results published on Thursday. The two parties scored 21.5 percent and 21 percent of voting intentions respectively in the survey by Odoxa-Dentsu Consulting. The conservative Les Republicains party came in third place with 14 percent of voting intentions, followed by far-left La France Insoumise with 12.5 percent. The Socialist Party of previous president François Hollande won just 4.5 percent, fewer than green party Europe Écologie Les Verts with five percent. …
  • Spanish PM denies plagiarism as degree scandal deepens

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Thursday denied allegations he plagiarized his doctoral thesis as he battles a raft of problems in a week that has seen him lose his health minister over similar reports of academic irregularities. “The information appearing in certain media claiming the existence of plagiarism in my doctoral thesis is absolutely FALSE,” Socialist Sánchez tweeted just two days after Carmen Montón quit as health minister amid reports of irregularities in how she obtained her degree. Spanish media said Montón had been awarded grades without attending classes and that her final project contained plagiarized passages — charges...
  • Nazisplaining Made Easy

    In a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on court nominees last year, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, 85, went on record that “there isn’t any good in Nazism.” Still, millennials and such should know that it does stand for something. Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei is the National Socialist German Workers Party, whose objective was Nationalsozialismus, National Socialism. Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek (1899–1992) had seen this storm cloud coming for some time. The socialist policy of Germany “was generally held up by progressives as an example to be imitated,” Hayek wrote in 1944 in “The Road to Serfdom.” He noted that while there was...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocked the GOP on Thursday for “corny” attacks against Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) that invoked his former band. The Texas Republican Party took a shot at O’Rourke’s 1990s punk band called Foss on Twitter this week after he refused to debate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whose seat O'Rourke is running for, by tweeting, "Maybe Beto can’t debate Ted Cruz because he already had plans." “Why is the GOP so corny?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Thursday.
  • Greenwald on ‘coming’ leak: NSA can obtain one billion cell phone calls a day, store them and listen

    The NSA has a “brand new” technology that enables one billion cell phone calls a day to be redirected into its data hoards and stored, according to the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who said that a new leak of Snowden’s documents was ‘coming soon.’ Calling it part of a “globalized system to destroy all privacy,” and the enduring creation of a climate of fear, Greenwald outlined the capabilities of the NSA to store every single call while having“the capability to listen to them at any time,” while speaking via Skype to the Socialism Conference in Chicago, on Friday. Greenwald was the...

    The discovery of the body of missing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbets brought a tragic end to a month long search. The arrest of Cristhian Bahena Rivera, an illegal immigrant, for her murder inspired Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) to urge Ms. Tibbets' parents to "focus on the bigger picture. Sure they have lost a daughter, but this loss must be weighed against the suffering of the much larger contingent of immigrant parents who have been separated from their children merely because they've entered the country illegally." "I mean, I'm sorry Mollie Tibbets is dead, but she was just one person,"...

    A project to open an LGTB-friendly retirement home has been given the green light by authorities in Madrid with plans to open it by the end of the year. A building in the Villaverde district in the south of Madrid has been earmarked to house the retirement home, which will be funded by public money from Madrid’s regional government. The new center will be home to 66 permanent residents, and will have a day center for a further 30 people. Federico Armenteros has been working for almost a decade to set up a specialized residence for elderly gay people through...

    Just wait until It’s Free “There is no such thing as a free lunch, someone has to pay for it.” The American socialist politicians are promising their voting constituents Free Stuff through such figures as Bernie Sanders, the politician from Vermont whose economic fortunes have improved drastically since he ran for president, and the socialist Cortez from the Bronx who, although she has a degree from a prestigious and very expensive school, does not know anything about Economics or geopolitics, by her own admission, and shows her lack of knowledge every time she opens her mouth.

    No matter how globalism is repackaged, it always smells the same way in the end. For decades, the globalists have subtly (or sometimes not so subtly) been moving us toward a world in which national borders have essentially been made meaningless. The ultimate goal, of course, is to merge all the nations of the world into a “one world socialist utopia” with a global government, a global economic system and even a global religion. The European Union is a model for what the elite hope to achieve eventually on a global scale. The individual nations still exist, but once inside...

    On August 12, 2017, a free speech rally arrived in Charlottesville to stop the removal of the statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Then a group of Neo-Nazis, white knights, alt-right trolls, white nationalists, and other white supremacists showed up. They wanted to protect the statue, albeit for different reasons. Then to counter-protest the white (not “Right”) supremacists, the violent left-wing Antifa hordes with their Black Bloc goons crashed the protest, and all hell broke loose. With protesters fighting to pulverize or protect the statue of a general who had headed one side of the American Civil War, another civil...

    Oh my! The darling of the Democrats - Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - tells CNN's Chris Cuomo that Socialized Medicine would actually be less expensive for the Government because people won't have to pay for funerals! Uh, bless her heart! It is frightening that there are actually people in power who are this stupid. Flat-out stupid. Basically, she has no answer for how the Socialists (Democrats) will pay for their pipe dreams - at least not an answer that people will accept. The truth is that it would take massive tax increases on EVERYONE - not just the rich - to...

    Too bad, so sad, NOT! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf.

    FRANCISCO — By the time Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took the stage in San Francisco on Tuesday night, an adoring crowd of 500 at her sold-out fundraiser — many wearing “Democratic Socialists of America” T-shirts and buttons — were ready for the next revolution to begin. **SNIP** Three thousand miles away from the site of her improbable June defeat of 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley, Ocasio-Cortez’s appearance is fueling hopes among members of California’s chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America that their time may have come. “She’s new, she’s a fresh voice — and we’ve been lacking that,’’ said Faith Eberling, a...

    While Democrats have always embraced socialist policies to a certain extent, claiming to be a “socialist” was taboo until recently, with the change thanks in large part to a surge in millennial candidates running for office. Even though the 2018 midterm elections are more than three months out, Democrats have quickly lost control of their agenda for the American people. Any plan that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi may have had for their divided caucus is now being forcibly pulled further to the left by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria...

    Once again, the oh-so progressive, oh-so enlightened Seattle City Council is showing the rest of the country what not to do. The idealistic leftists who control the Council are wasting millions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars in failed attempts to solve problems the Council members created. All this is turning Seattle into the poster city for the failure of Big Government. The city best known for fish markets, coffee stores, rain and flannel-wearing musicians is now becoming legendary for its incompetent leadership and its financial boondoggles. The latest example of Seattle senselessness is the Council’s costly and deeply flawed efforts to...

    Now or Never There can be no better advertisement against Democrats, neoconservatives, and never-Trumpers than their display after the Helsinki summit. Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. The Democrats’ destruction began long before Trump. They are wholly associated with government, their answer to all problems and the source of their identity and power. Where they once had a healthy hostility towards the military and the intelligence agencies, they are now among their stoutest defenders. Their ideology, such as it is, is simply more: more government, taxes, laws, regulations, revenues, power, surveillance, wars, and programs, in short, more...
