  • NY Times Op-Ed: Trump Is a ‘Moderate’

    The New York Times posted an op-ed in favor of Donald Trump on Monday under the headline, “The Secret of Trump’s Appeal Isn’t Authoritarianism.” The article is a shocking departure from the newspapers’ progressive cheerleading — and its readers’ preference for anti-Trump news. The author argued that Trump’s style is conventional, but his statements zigzag along the centrist, middle-of-the-road, this-and-that line favored by non-elite, non-ideological voters:

    Two men were lynched in the West Bank on Friday after being accused of collaborating with Israel. The alleged "spies" were murdered in the street while others filmed the carnage. Their bodies were then hung from a tower as a large crowd cheered in approval.. Pro-Palestinian accounts on social media celebrated the killings by claiming it was an act of resistance, though no evidence has emerged to confirm the claims that the two men were actually spies working for Israel. ... That this happened in the ostensibly more moderate West Bank says everything about the possibility of a "two-state solution,"...
  • Can Trump win over the GOP as the ‘moderate’ in the race?

    Perhaps the most moderate candidate in the field as of this moment is Donald Trump. If you want a Republican who won’t cut spending or start foreign wars, Trump is still your man. Added to this now is clearly a discomfort with the fight over abortion in the post-Roe environment. Trump’s main line of attack against Ron DeSantis is from the left. He’s hitting the Florida governor hard for his past support for reining in Social Security and Medicare. He’s also called the governor’s culture-war clash with Disney “so unnecessary” and “a political stunt,” while not entering the fray in...

    Mo Brooks opposed the Biden-Pelosi Defense Bill Katie Britt supports. Here’s what Britt’s endorsing: Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Critical Race Theory, taxpayer paid sex change operations, renaming bases and even drafting women. Katie Britt’s a woke moderate who supported Doug Jones over Roy Moore, while sitting silently as Britt Demolition took down Birmingham’s Confederate Monument. Katie Britt. Too Weak. Too Woke. Wrong. For Alabama.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that Republicans would “make sure Joe Biden is a moderate” if they retake Congress in the midterm elections. Anchor Dana Perino said, “I want to ask about the midterms next anyway. You have a great way of transitioning, sir. Inflation, gas, and groceries. this is on everybody’s mind. What would be different for Americans if Republicans win back the majorities in the House and Senate this year?”

    In an interview with Fox News, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) pushed back against being labeled as a “moderate” and “Never Trumper” for saying that “the stakes are too high” to risk another Donald Trump presidency. Hogan told Fox News on Sunday, “With America on the wrong path, the stakes are too high to double down on failure.”

    At the end of the day, senators care more about protecting themselves and their colleagues from unpredictable, inconvenient floor votes than they do about passing legislation.Official Washington’s conventional wisdom about the Senate filibuster is a fairy tale. It is utterly unmoored from the choices being made by individual senators, party caucuses, and the body as a whole. Every person who has ever told you that the mean, nasty, outdated legislative filibuster is the source of Senate gridlock and the obstacle to common-sense legislating in Congress has either swallowed, or is peddling, a lie. In an op-ed in the Washington Post...

    Stone-Manning was linked to a 1989 Earth First! tree-spiking plot in Idaho. The commonly used eco-terrorism tactic involves inserting metal rods into trees to prevent them from being cut down and cause chainsaws of loggers to explode. ------------ In a 50-45 party-line vote Thursday evening, the US Senate confirmed President Joe Biden’s controversial eco-terrorist-linked nominee Tracy Stone-Manning, who had previously endorsed population control, to head the Bureau of Land Management, which oversees millions of acres of federal land.

    Progressives are imploring fellow Democrats to stop using the term "moderate" to describe some lawmakers in their party, arguing it inaccurately labels those holding up President Biden's agenda as merely staking out a middle-ground approach. The rhetorical pressure campaign is escalating over what liberals see as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema's (D-Ariz.) lack of cooperation with their favored approach to passing social and physical infrastructure legislation simultaneously. That reluctance has prompted some on the left to cast the duo as intraparty obstructionists with a right-of-center posture on many top priorities. One House Democrat went so far as to...

    President Joe Biden joked about once being thought of as a moderate, in an Oval Office meeting with leftist Democrats at the White House last week. “I used to be called a moderate,” he said, according to The Atlantic. The president signaled support with the fight led by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and other leftists to get a $3.5 trillion spending bill through the House of Representatives, even as moderates are trying to block it or even cut the spending levels.
  • How Trump can win again: Become the calm, moderate candidate (good piece!)

    The political scene is evolving so quickly that I presume to offer some advice to President Trump: He can now win in 2024 by being the potential candidate of calm and moderation. The Democrats have become a Babel of contending extremists, suddenly and implausibly blaming the Republicans for defunding police forces and miraculously discovering the virtues of voter identification, after having denounced it for six months as the resurrection of Jim Crow. The utter moral bankruptcy of many elected Democrats was captured in the Texas state legislators fleeing the state in private planes, excitedly taking selfies of themselves unmasked and...

    Americans increasingly view President Joe Biden as more far-left on policy now he is actually in office, with polling demonstrating a 10 percent surge since late 2019. Forty-six percent of Americans now view Biden as “too liberal” as of May. In December 2019, before Biden took office, only 36 percent said Biden was too liberal. LinkForty percent said Biden’s radical policies are “about right.” That is also down two percent from 2019. Only ten percent said Biden is “too conservative.”

    'At his hundred-day mark, Biden is the most liberal president we’ve had — and the public thinks he’s a moderate. That’s a winning strategy to me.' =============================================================== Democrats seem to believe Americans are so gullible and stupefied that friendly reporters can openly quote the left gloating about how they lie, steal, and cheat to get power. We saw it in February with a bombshell Time magazine article crowing about Democrats’ successful “conspiracy” to rig the 2020 election through aggressive lawsuits, a compliant corporate media, and the ability to deploy rioters.

  • Is Joe Biden Trying to Buy Joe Manchin's Loyalty? If Manchin Can Be Bought, Say Goodbye to the Filibuster

    PJ Media ^ | 03/27/2021 | Matt Margolis
    With a 50-50 split in the United States Senate, there are two things Joe Biden cannot afford: Democrat defections and a filibuster. Senate rules require 60 votes for cloture to move on legislation, and recent years have turned the filibuster into an obstruction tactic by the minority party. Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat from the very red state of West Virginia, has found himself in a very powerful position. His support or opposition to key legislation could make or break Joe Biden’s agenda in Congress. So, it’s hard not to raise an eyebrow at the fact that Joe Biden...

    Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau mocked some media outlets for referring to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as a "moderate," with the Pod Save America host calling the notion "hilarious.” "It was hilarious to me that she's being called, in all this coverage, a 'moderate,' like Joe Biden has found a fellow moderate or centrist. She supports something extremely close to 'Medicare for All,' which Bernie Sanders acknowledged in his statement supporting her. She's for the Green New Deal. She has one of the most liberal records in the U.S. Senate," Favreau said. Harris, who was officially announced as Biden’s running...

    Once Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate for the upcoming 2020 election, it didn’t take long for the media to begin its latest attempt to gaslight Americans.In the Associated Press announcement of Biden’s choice, AP writers Kathleen Ronayne and Will Weissert write approvingly of Harris’s “centrist record” as a contributing factor in the decision. Longtime political analyst and lobbyist Doug Schoen praised Biden’s pick while arguing Harris “could help Biden solidify his position among centrist voters and even moderate Republican voters.”Not to be outdone, The New York Times characterized Harris as a “pragmatic moderate.” In...

    The New York Times described Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as a “pragmatic moderate” in its report on her selection to be the running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday. As Breitbart News reported Tuesday, Harris was rated the 4th most liberal Senator by the non-partisan website, based on her support for left-wing legislation. She has no bipartisan legislative achievements to her name.

    Former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang this week said former Vice President Joe Biden’s moderate image will potentially allow him to enact some of the most progressive policies since the New Deal era. “If someone like Joe says, ‘Hey, we need to do things differently on the economy or on climate change,’ that also becomes the mainstream. It’s very powerful. I think Joe has those instincts where he doesn’t try and chime in on every new issue. In part, that will help him move the entire center of gravity. If you look at his proposal on addressing climate change, it was...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is warning that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will have to “moderate” if he continues to maintain his frontrunner status in the Democrat primary, the West Virginia lawmaker emphasizing that he is “not going socialist.” Sanders’ successes in both Iowa and New Hampshire, combined with Joe Biden’s (D) poor performances, have several lawmakers increasingly considering the possibility of Vermont’s socialist senator winning the Democrat nomination.
