Medicare for all

Lessons from the coronavirus pandemic

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The painfully slow testing procedure made it clear that our bureaucratic government establishment was incapable of the simplest of actions — getting tests to the public and having them analyzed within a reasonable amount of time. The glut of regulations endemic to a massive bureaucracy made it impossible to get the job done. There are many questions that still need to be asked and answered about this unfolding debacle, but one lesson has already been made clear: The federal government should never be given control over our health care. They’ll call it “universal” and “free,” when as the Italians are finding, it’s really incompetent and deadly.

Bad News: Lindsey Graham Wants Election Year Immigration Bill

The idea that giving amnesty to illegal aliens, no matter how tear-jerkingly their case is presented, will net the President more votes than he loses to those who oppose special treatment for any class of illegal aliens, shows just how out of touch Senator Lindsey Graham and the pro-amnesty crowd in the White House are with Trump’s base voters.

Joe Biden Is No ‘Moderate’ On Immigration And Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

If Joe Biden’s radical stance on immigration is what passes for “moderate” in the Democratic Party, then they really have gone off the progressive cliff. In essence, his proposals would create an "amnesty in place," gut worksite enforcement, create a magnet for millions to enter the United States illegally and prove a boon to human traffickers and fraudulent-document vendors.

The Myth Of Joe Biden The Moderate

The Democrats’ problem in appealing to moderates is pretty simple – try as they might to disguise their real views, none of the Democrat candidates, especially Joe Biden, are moderates. Setting aside Biden’s rapidly increasing propensity to have brain freezes and bizarre episodes of confusion out on the campaign trail, the former VP has revealed himself to be no “moderate” on issue after issue.

Democrats Trying To Consolidate Race Into Biden vs. Bernie

Klobuchar and Buttigieg are endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden in an effort to pump up his faltering campaign, and as the Democrat establishment tries to consolidate behind Biden, the Far Left has begun a social media campaign to push Senator Elizabeth Warren to drop out of the race and endorse Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.

Biden Wins SC, Bernie Wins Cash And Polls Heading To Super Tuesday

Joe Biden goes into the Democrats' Super Tuesday primaries almost broke and with no time to turn his South Carolina win into campaign cash. Sleepy Joe may have picked up a little bounce from his South Carolina win, and Michael Bloomberg may have dumped half-a-billion dollars on TV, but it is the Far Left "woke" progressives that are driving the Democratic primaries in most states, and they are solidly in Bernie Sanders’ corner.

Why Were The Democrats All Beating Up On Bernie?

Former Mayors Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg may have a point about Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders' lack of appeal to suburban middle-income voters. But here’s the problem – all the Democratic candidates are with Bernie or even to the Left of him on issue after issue.

Bernie Sanders Nomination: Let’s Be Careful What We Wish For

Many conservatives have been chortling with glee at the prospect of Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders getting the Democratic Party’s nomination for President. The assumption seems to be that a Bernie nomination will make the 2020 campaign a pushover for Donald Trump’s reelection. Our take is that in the aftermath of Bernie’s victory in the Nevada Caucuses, we conservatives should be careful what we wish for.

Democrat Platform: Make you do things you don’t want to do

We have been listening very attentively to what the Democrats have been saying during their debates and campaign appearances, and all their statements and speeches always seem to boil down to one thing: They plan to make you do things you don’t want to do.

The Dumpster Fire In Vegas

Last night's Democratic Party primary debate was a real dumpster fire, and it was a dumpster full of Michael Bloomberg’s money that went up in flames. But the dumpster fire isn't out yet. Democrats still have to navigate a caucus system that was set up to stuff Bernie Sanders, but with Bloomberg's implosion they have no viable alternative to the socialist curmudgeon from Vermont.

Michael Bloomberg: Like Penny Loafers At A Rodeo

The entertainment of value of Bloomberg’s phoniness aside, the former New York City Mayor’s real problem is that the authentic Bloomberg would get buried in both the Democratic Party’s primary and the general election, because, judging by what the real Michael Bloomberg says in unscripted moments, he’s an even nastier elitist than Hillary Clinton.

The Myth Of The Moderate Democrat

Our friend Deroy Murdock recently posted an analysis of the legislative scorecards for the Senators still in the race for the Democratic Party's nomination for President. It turns out that so-called moderates Amy Klobuchar and Joe Biden have often posted scores to the Left of Socialist Bernie Sanders. What's more, former Mayors Bloomberg and Buttigieg are every bit as Far Left as Sanders, Klobuchar, Biden and Warren.

Billionaires Buying Or Bribing Their Way To Democrat Nomination?

Bloomberg has already tripled Trump’s 2016 spending, with no end in sight. Bloomberg has said he’s open to spending $1 billion dollars of his own money in his bid to become president, but whether he and Tom Steyer can use their billions to buy or use legal forms of bribery to build a loyal and effective campaign organization remains to be seen.

Amy Klobuchar Wins the Democrats’ Vice Presidential Nomination

Amy Klobuchar had minimal national name recognition before this presidential race.  The odds of her defeating Biden, Sanders, and Warren seemed overwhelmingly against her.  Yet she persisted.  And now she has enough of a demonstrated following to make her the logical vice presidential choice of either Sanders or Bloomberg.

Biden Slinks Out Of New Hampshire Before Results Are Announced

In a move reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Election Night disappearing act, the former vice president canceled his New Hampshire "victory party" as his campaign scrambles to keep his base of African-American support in South Carolina from crumbling under the weight of a fourth-place finish in Iowa’s chaotic caucuses and his humiliating fifth place finish in New Hampshire’s first in the nation primary.

We’re All Dog-Faced Pony Soldiers Now

Madison Moore’s question was a perfectly legitimate reality-based question, which Biden deflected with an insult rather than answering. While the form of Biden’s insulting deflection was something unique that only weird old Joe could ever come up with, deflecting legitimate reality-based questions is par for the course among this year’s field of Democratic presidential contenders.

Elizabeth Warren’s Health Care Chimera

David Catron, The American Spectator

Even at $20.5 trillion, the projections published in Warren’s Medicare-for-All plan are simply too low to be taken seriously. There are only two realistic ways to hit that number — double the taxes paid by the middle class or resort to rationing. The liberal voters of California and Vermont rejected the necessary tax increases. This is why Warren exhumed rationing advocate Donald Berwick to cobble together a superficially credible program that she can brandish during the next Democratic debate and shout, “I have a plan for that.” But many Democrats are afraid that the voters aren’t as Democrats believe them to be. They’re right.

Can The Democrats Beat Trump With A Campaign Of Lies?

We agree with Rep. Gabbard that, in a field of noted prevaricators, Sen. Kamala Harris stands out as perhaps the biggest liar, but the fact of the matter is the Democratic Party’s entire campaign against President Trump is based on lies.

Dem Debate: America’s Urban Poor Out – Illegal Aliens In

Last night’s debate offered little hope to America’s most desperate citizens and showed that having booked the African American vote, inner city African Americans are now just dust in the Democrats' rearview mirror, they’ve now moved on to servicing illegal aliens in the hopes of obtaining a new cohort of desperate clients eager for socialism’s phantom rewards.

Dem Debate: After #OrangeManRacist Democrats Have Nothing But Your Money

Other than two brief moments of lucidity from Montana Governor Steve Bullock and former Rep. John Delaney, the Democratic Debate was mostly a bizarre combination of charges that Donald Trump is a racist and promises of free stuff for everyone paid for by imaginary gazillionaires.
