America needs a democratic revolution

  America needs a democratic revolution Fixing systemic inequities in voting power should be a high priority for Democrats.If Biden wins the election, the Democratic Party will almost certainly gain seats in the US Senate. But it’s far from clear whether Democrats will be able to secure a majority. In the 2018 Senate races that led to Republican gains, most votes were cast for Democrats. Democrats also won a majority of votes in Senate races in 2016, but again, Republicans secured a majority.

Leftist billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundation has funded the Tides Foundation to the To shed some light on the leftist chaos, sabotage and disruption, WND has compiled the following list of the Top 10 leftist groups leading the "Trump resistance How about your members of Congress?"

"So Democrats are hoping to steal a victory in this critical Rust Belt District by turning working-class voters that propelled Trump to victory against him." Democratic Congressman Mike Doyle suggested recently that "the potential to elect a Democrat " exists if the candidate is "the right kind of Democrat ."

A coalition of leftish groups appears to have created a playbook for opposing President Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and, like puppets, Democratic senators already are following it.

The playbook that came into my hands self-identifies as being the work of MoveOn, Demand Justice, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Sunrise Movement, and three other hyper-liberal organizations. Its first action item under the category of “Messaging” is called “Slogans,” and the first three slogans it lists are “no confirmation before inauguration,” “let the people decide,” and “our future, our justice.”

Of course, some leftist judges are less intellectually dishonest than others. An example is the Honorable Emmet Sullivan on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, a judge I first encountered at Judicial Watch many years ago when, thanks to a lawsuit I had filed, he attempted to

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is the Democratic Hill committee for the United States Senate. It is the only organization solely dedicated to electing Democrats to the United States Senate.

Very quickly, New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker tweeted, “No confirmation vote until after the inauguration.” Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren tweeted, “No confirmation before the inauguration.” Oregon Democrat Jeff Merkley did likewise.

The memo also contains “sample social media content.” Among the key items is that Barrett supposedly will join other conservative court members to “kick millions off their insurance in the middle of a pandemic.” Naturally, Democrat Ron Wyden of Oregon tweeted, “Millions of Americans will be left without health care in the middle of a pandemic.” Hawaii’s Brian Schatz: “Healthcare is about to be ripped from millions of Americans in the middle of a pandemic.” Likewise, Connecticut’s Richard Blumenthal: “Hundreds of millions of Americans … in the middle of a pandemic.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) keeps giving radical leftist groups that support President Obama huge amounts of cash collected from big banks to settle discrimination and mortgage abuse lawsuits filed by the government. Judicial Watch first reported the scheme two years ago when Countrywide

Amid an ongoing battle within the Democratic National Committee between its progressive wing and the more "centrist" establishment, a Harvard-Harris poll (pdf) published Tuesday found that a majority of Democrats think their party should be embracing grassroots movements

And so on, right down the list of slogans and talking points and right down the list of Democratic senators. Are these senators so dull that they can’t think for themselves? Are they sheep who bleat only when their shepherds call them?

This has been going on for decades, with what Democratic Capitol Hill staffers long have called “the groups” calling the shots, combining their fundraising might, and deciding on lines of attack, often personal, against Republicans. As a National Review online editorial put it when discussing Senate Democratic memos unearthed in 2003, the memos “discussed Democratic strategies for blocking the president’s nominees.” Then, as now, “the memos revealed just how closely Senate Democrats worked with outside interest groups.”

The most infamous of those earlier memos, of course, explained that “the groups” particularly wanted Senate Democrats to oppose appellate court nominee Miguel Estrada for no better reason than that “he is Latino, and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment.”

That may have been true for all of about a day following the death of George Floyd back in May, and some of the protesters no doubt still feel that they’re fighting the good fight. But far more have taken to the streets to commit brazen acts of violence, looting, and criminality. Thousands have been injured

Follow CNN. A self-described democratic socialist, Sanders has come out against "hard- left " violence, saying of protests over Coulter's UC Berkeley appearance, "I don't like this." Activists take martial arts classes together and strategize about how to achieve their main goal: taking down fascists.

This time, the key message is, in the words of the Planned Parenthood action” guide, that “Trump has promised to nominate and appoint justices who will [outlaw abortion] and undermine access to health care.”

Oddly, I can’t find a single quote from Trump saying he wants justices to undermine access to healthcare. But who needs truth when scare tactics will do?

As Barrett goes through the confirmation process, the public must understand that the attacks against her are being orchestrated in advance by powerful interest groups with interlocking tentacles. The character assassinations that always come are the sleaziest of politics, and they absolutely should not succeed.

Considering that this offseason will also see many teams looking to cut salary, the Senators could land a very good player (or two) by moving their high picks to a team that has no choice but to sacrifice the present and in Ottawa finds the opportunity to invest in the future. © Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports The Senators own a whopping 13 picks in the 2020 NHL Draft, including three first-round picks and four second-round picks.
