Pelosi Claims Socialism “Not the View of the Democratic Party” …Really?

 

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tried to tamp down the perceived influence of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive freshman Democrats, saying their wing in Congress was “like five people.”

Speaking with CBS News’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes,” Pelosi said the 29-year-old congresswoman from New York didn’t have a significant impact on the Democratic Party. The House speaker also said she rejected socialism “as an economic system.”

“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi, to which the 79-year-old replied: “That’s like five people.”

“No, it’s the progressive group, it’s more than five,” the interviewer pushed back. Pelosi contended that she herself is a progressive.

The speaker added that she believes Congressional Democrats “by and large … know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream,” and said she “reject[s] socialism as an economic system.”

“If people have that view, that’s their view,” she said. “That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”

When pressed on whether Congress has been productive, she said Democrats regained control of the House only three months ago, and that things were moving. She added: “The power of the Speaker is awesome.”

Once again, Speaker of the House Pelosi overestimates herself.

How could the views of AOC and her fellow travelers NOT be the view of the Democratic Party?

Their Party Chairman, Tom Perez, is a Far Left Hispanic Political Activist.

And every piece that they have proposed since Trump took office has been from a Far Left political viewpoint.

The Democrats have been advocating “Democratic Socialism” for quite a while now.

San Fran Nan is attempting to somehow combat Trump’s rising popularity and their tanking favorability ratings.

The past two years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

And now,  with Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors failing to find any proof of Russian Collusion and no actionable proof of obstruction, veteran Democrats like Pelosi realize that claiming that they are actually “Moderates” may be the only way to keep their party from going the way of the Whigs.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They learned nothing at all during their 2 years out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

And, simply declaring themselves to be “Moderates” is not going to cut it.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…

  1. Americans are “jingoistic”.
  2. America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
  3. The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
  4. Perversion is perfectly normal.
  5. They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.

There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.

Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.

Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….

and America.

And, judging from their lack of accomplishments thus far, the Pelosi-led House of Representatives is going to do nothing to halt the Dem’s downward descent into oblivion.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

Do you ever feel helpless about what's going on? Do you turn the sound down when a member of "The Resistance" speaks? Do you talk back to the television? I understand fully. My blog contains the views of a 60 year old Christian American Conservative. I was raised by members of The Greatest Generation. My father landed at Normandy. I love this country. By the way, how did that Hopey-Changey Thing work out for ya?

I have been writing daily since April of 2010. I enjoy researching and sharing my thoughts with you. It is a privilege and it beats the heck out of punching a hole in the wall.

Thanks for reading my posts!

I'll keep writing....

Until He Comes,

  1. A thought to remember, Marx said, “Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed.

    There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter.

    The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime.

    In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”

    The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods, and you put corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.

    “When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

    “They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side .

    “The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

    Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”

    The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

    One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

    Consequently, if you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to share this with your friends.

    If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably not share this.

    BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

    Quote for today: “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those that vote for a living”

    “Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government
    take care of him— better take a closer look at the American Indian.”
    Henry Ford.

  2. FYI- Awake! Thy country save.

    Norman Mattoon Thomas
    (Presidential candidate; 1956-64)
    “The American people will never
    knowingly adopt socialism. But,
    under the name of “liberalism,” they
    will adopt every fragment of the
    socialist program, until one day
    America will be a socialist nation,
    without knowing how it happened. I
    no longer need to run as a
    Presidential Candidate for the
    Socialist Party. The Democratic
    Party has adopted our platform.

  3. Idiot knows Americans are smarter than she thinks. Americans don’t want socialism. But believe that the democrats do. She and her fellow democrats will say anything to get a vote. Then turn on those who voted on them. Don’t listen to the lies.

  4. We know what a liar she is, that’s what you demonic’s have turned into with your hatred of a good man, your jealousy has no end to it. You would do anything to destroy this country, even if it meant turning into socialism.
