Even the left-wing Washington Post wrote in a September 2017 article titled “A 2020 Democratic Agenda is Emerging” how the Democrat candidates are running to the left. Now, the Washington Post’s Ed Rogers not only seems to have been right, but he may have toned down the radical left-wing shift that the Democrat Party was embarking on! He wrote…
Beyond the call for a single-payer health-care system, the Democratic candidates appear to be coalescing around a core set of issues that constitute a dangerous lurch to the left.
As I see it, the ante to be in the game as a serious contender for the Democratic nomination will include uniform positions on at least five issues. Specifically, any Democrat who wants to be taken seriously must support a single-payer health-care system, a $15 minimum wage, free college tuition, affirmative support for sanctuary cities along with minimal immigration controls and, finally, a contender must completely embrace Black Lives Matter and engage in a probing courtship with the radical pseudo-group the “antifa.”
The race to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020 will be a race to the left. The Bernie Sanders agenda has taken root. By the time the Democrats’ nominating process was complete in 2016, Hillary Clinton had become Bernie Sanders-lite. I see the next Democratic nominee as likely to be Sanders on steroids.
Economic polices will consist of government giveaways and anti-business crusades. Social causes will give no quarter to moderate positions, and LGBT special interests, labor unions, global warming fanatics and factions such as Black Lives Matter, along with other grievance industry groups, will face no moderating counterforce. (Disclosure: My firm represents interests in the fossil fuel industry.)
Now, it appears that Rogers was right, as they have embraced such radical ideas as Medicare for all, which is a dressed-up name for socialized medicine. That program would kicks American’s off of their current healthcare systems, insurance policies, and take away their doctors, as well as, give the government power over who lives and who dies, what meds people can have, creates long waiting lists for Americans in need of surgeries, cancer treatments, and especially penalizes those who they see as high risk, like the elderly! That doesn’t even cover the fact that while Medicare was designed for the elderly, it would take away their funding, as to give it to everyone, leaving the program financially broke, and needing a massive flush of cash..aka…STEAL THE American taxpayer’s incomes!
That brings us to the Democrats plans for financing their massive Socialist agenda!
2020 Demcrat Candidate and Senator Bernie Sanders went so far as to call for a new wealth tax, stating on his campaign twitter account that Billionaires should not exist in America!
One America News reported that…
The new tax rates would apply to those with a net worth above $32 million, and would reportedly raise over $4 trillion within a decade. The money would go toward funding Sanders social programs such as Medicare for All and universal child care. The Vermont senator even suggested creating a “national wealth registry” to make sure everyone singled out by the wealth tax pays.
Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who appears to be moving into the number one place in the 2020 Presidential race, has been calling for a wealth tax as well, stating that the government should assess one’s possessions, to determine exactly how much wealth one has, and then apply an additional burden to their wealth, in addition to their income tax, personal property taxes, sales taxes, phone taxes, utility taxes, and countless other taxes! Interestingly, to be able to pay for the Medicare for all program, it would bankrupt the Middle Class, destroy job growth, as business owners and corporations would be forced to shift their resources from paying for employees to compensate for the government stealing their companies, businesses, and personal money, in the name of Socialism! Sadly, healthcare is only one aspect of the proposals they are planning for post-2020!
Democrats also are promising to pay off EVERYONE’S student loan debt, offer FREE COLLEGE, FREE healthcare for illegal aliens, automatic paychecks for Americans regardless of employment, and FREE EVERYTHING! The problem with the Democrats plan is… EVEN IF THEY CONFISCATE ALL THE WEALTH IN AMERICA, THEY STILL WOULDN’T HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY FOR ALL THE FREE THINGS THEY ARE PROMISING! Still, that isn’t the only problem with their pro-Socialist proposals!
The New York Post reported on September 11’th that…
The 2020 election is still a long way off, but the nation’s big banks are already pricing in the possibility of an Elizabeth Warren presidency, their senior executives tell me. The picture ain’t pretty — for the banks or average Americans.
True, Warren isn’t the Democrats’ frontrunner, and a lot could happen in coming months. Because it’s early, financial stocks haven’t officially started to suffer. But the bank execs note that Warren is smart and driven, and they fear she may be starting to break out of the pack, where she can do some damage.
Now, that fear has increased, as Warren has overtaken the ‘bumbling-Biden’, as she has surged to a double-digit lead in California, and has taken the lead in key early-voting states like Iowa! Financial institutions and leaders see the writing on the wall, as to what a Warren Presidency would mean, which involves crushing those who employ blue-collar workers, destroying America’s Middle Class, ravaging and ending private healthcare and business ownership, wiping out the stock market; therefore, American’s 401K’s and retirement accounts that they have been saving up their entire lives, and so forth! It would decimate homeownership, our ability to get countless foods like beef, as she has joined in with the radical left-wing Marxist ‘Squad’ member, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), who introduced the Green New Deal, and it gets so much worse!
In fact, even after a study from the American Action Forum found that her Green New Deal would cost over $600,000 per household or $94 Trillion over a ten year period, and they said THAT WAS A CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE, Democrats including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and even Joe Biden, have embraced it as the holy grail of America’s future!
Even more concerning, is the fact that the American Action Forum was not even able to price much of the plan, because of its vagueness, but the study focused on the proposals that were more straightforward, such as…
- A 10-year transition to an exclusively low-carbon energy electricity grid;
- Enough high-speed rail transit available that air travel becomes unnecessary;
- Guaranteeing union jobs with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States;
- Universal health care;
- Guaranteed housing for every American; and
- Food security for every person in the United States.
The Free Beacon reported that the American Action Forum calculated it based on…
- guaranteed green housing would cost between $1.6 trillion and $4.2 trillion
- a federal jobs guarantee between $6.8 trillion and $44.6 trillion
- net zero emissions transportation system between $1.3 trillion and $2.7 trillion
- a low-carbon electricity grid for $5.4 trillion; and “food security” for $1.5 billion.
Furthermore, Americans would no longer be able to afford energy, as electric bills were estimated to increase by at least $3,800 per year, and the tax burden per household would increase to an average of $360,000 to $653,000 over a ten year period.
Sen. John Barrasso (R., Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, told the Free Beacon that…
“The American Action Forum’s analysis shows that the Green New Deal would bankrupt the nation. On the upper end, every American household would have to pay $65,000 per year to foot the bill. The total price tag would be $93 trillion over 10 years. That is roughly four times the value of all Fortune 500 companies combined. That’s no deal.”
In the end, Barrasso is correct, in that the Green New Deal, is a ‘New Green Marxist Catastrophe’! In fact, it would not only be one of the most dangerous, careless, and catastrophic pieces of legislation in United States history, but it would spell doom for our great nation!
Top that off with the fact that Elizabeth Warren promising an end to fracking, and oil exploration, which blue-dog democrat states like Pennsylvania cannot afford, resulting in a Trump win! States like Minnesota, which shows entire mining towns turning from deep blue, to ruby red!
For example, in a traditionally blue region, President Trump has been making inroads, as he has pushed for and been winning on American pride, border security, the economy, and putting Americans First, especially the American workers!
Meanwhile, Minnesota workers, and especially their mining towns have seen the Democrat Party left them, and Republicans under President Trump becoming the Party of the American workers! Minnesota citizens point close to home, where Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has threatened their very way of life, as well as, the Democrats policies, as a whole. In fact, even CNN pointed out how Minnesota is likely to turn red in 2020!

It exposes yet another sign, as to how President Trump is truly Making America Great Again, and why he will likely win the 2020 election, especially when considering the radically left-wing anti-American policies and promises that the field of Democrat candidates are promising to implement if Americans dare to elect them into power!
Now, Wayne Allen Root from the Gateway Pundit wrote that…
As President Trump about to win re-election in a 35 to 40 state electoral landslide? The signs are everywhere. Trump just raised $15 million in one day…in California. The biggest business leaders in America are betting on Trump…even in ultra-liberal, ultra-blue California. By way of comparison, California’s own liberal darling Kamala Harris raised $12 million nationally…over three months!
Think about the money situation for a moment. Famous Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neill once said, “Money is the mother’s milk of politics.” Well, guess who has all the money for 2020? Trump was outspent by more than 2 to 1 in the 2016 election. Still, Hillary couldn’t beat him. This time around, experts project Trump will have $2 billion to spend. Trump with $600 million beat Hillary. What chance do Democrats have with Trump and $2 billion?
Ultimately Root is correct, in that all the writing is on the wall, and with the Democrat’s prospect of impeachment for…WHATEVER THEY CAN FIND TO IMPEACH TRUMP ON, it only leads to greater disgust and frustration of ‘We the People’, with the leadership of our great American nation!
Today, as a result of the impending disaster for Democrats come 2020, the Party is working around the clock to prop-up Biden, because he is the most rational of the candidates, even if he is missing a few marbles! Ultimately, it isn’t that they dislike Warren, or even disagree with her radical left-wing Socialist policies! Instead, they see her as damaged goods in the eye of the American electorate, and Democrats think that their best chance of beating Trump is the mentally frail Biden!
Now, the delusional left-wing radical mainstream media hopes and prays that Joe Biden is their savior, even as many of them refuse to believe in the actual savior! They hope that Biden can beat Trump, even though it is a longshot! Regardless, they will root for him, all while ignoring his mental decline!
Ultimately, the left-wing socialist Democrats are heading to a massive landslide defeat, not only in the office of the Presidency but in the halls of Congress, as Republicans hang onto the President’s coattails. This will happen for several reasons! First, Democrats can’t help their incessant hate and desire to oust the President, and confiscate power from the hands of ‘We the People’, and consolidate it in their power-hungry and greedy hands!
Regardless, even though Dems need Biden to be their savior, Biden won’t be, because as Wayne Allen Root wrote…
Biden will never be the Democrat presidential nominee. Never. The Democrats and their promotion department (ie the mainstream media) are delusional about Biden.
Biden is a real-life “Weekend at Bernies.” He isn’t all there anymore. But for the moment, the media is propping him up.
Great grandpa Biden doesn’t know where he is anymore. His mind is wandering off to imaginary fights with some thug named “Corn pop.”
Biden doesn’t know what year it is. In a recent Democrat presidential debate he asked voters to go to Biden30330. Folks, if you are so old you can’t remember your web site is Biden2020, you can’t be president.
Biden doesn’t know where he is. He was recently addressing the press in New Hampshire and he said how much he loves it in Vermont.
Biden doesn’t know the population of America. Days ago, he boasted his economic plan would put 720 million women back to work. There are only 330 million people in America.
Don’t forget Joe’s greatest hits. He recommends parents play records with their kids at night on a “record player.” He doesn’t realize record players were phased out decades ago.
He thinks Robert F. Kennedy and Dr Martin Luther King Jr were assassinated “in the late 70’s.”
Poor Joe wants to be president so badly. The liberal media wants it so badly for him. But “want” doesn’t cut it. Joe Biden will never be president.
Poor Joe just doesn’t have it anymore. He’s not living in our world. His brain is stuck in some past world that made him happier.
Therefore, while Democrats put their Marxists hopes and dream into Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren is preparing to be the next Democrat candidate for President! However, even as Democrats begin to accept that as a fact, and as they try to prop her up, calling anyone who opposes her a sexist, the Democrat party will lose BIG in 2020, because despite their efforts to brainwash the youth of our nation into believing in the Socialist lie, America is still a free nation, with those who still stand for all the rights, the hopes, and the dreams that the Constitution of the United States has bestowed upon ‘We the People’!
