    Prominent Democrat operatives have warned that if President Joe Biden makes good on his promise and runs for reelection in 2024, he will have to have primary challengers. “If he runs, he will be challenged,” Michael Starr Hopkins told the Hill on Wednesday. Hopkins “enthusiastically” supported Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020 but has soured on the president as an unchallenged nominee. Corbin Trent, a former senior aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), echoed Hopkins’s analysis. “If it looks like it’s going to be a free-for-all, then I think it’s going to be back to the 24-person primary,” he said. Democrats have been split by Biden’s leadership. On the one hand, far-left radicals have swayed the administration towards policies that are stifling the nation, such as energy dependence, inflation, immigration, and crime. On the other hand, less radical Democrats are trying to survive the midterms in less blue districts, whose constituents are skeptical of the far-left agenda. For instance, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who is from a state that nearly voted for Donald Trump over Biden by 40-points, has opposed many...
    Photo by Riccardo Savi/Getty Images for Concordia Summit Former President Donald Trump on Saturday endorsed Mehmet Oz in his Senate bid in Pennsylvania, saying the celebrity doctor is “smart, tough and will never let you down.” In a statement, Trump said Pennsylvania has “a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz.” Trump referenced The Dr. Oz Show, saying that he “has lived with us through the screen and has always been popular, respected, and smart.” “He even said that I was in extraordinary health, which made me like him even more (although he also said I should lose a couple of pounds!)” Trump continued, before noting Oz’s Ivy League credentials. 45: @DrOz is smart, tough, and will never let you down, therefore, he has my Complete and Total Endorsement.

    Brook-Krasny told the Post he likely won't be the last to jump ship. "I think this is just the beginning," he said. "I think we will see a trend. I’ve tried for a long time, but I don’t think I can change the Democratic Party from the inside out, so it’s time to work from the outside."What else?The Post reported that Republicans have earned noteworthy victories at the ballot box in recent months. One of those victories was wrested by another former Democratic lawmaker, Inna Vernikov. Vernikov — a newly elected Republican council member who trounced Democrat Steven Saperstein by 30 points to win in the 48th District in November — said she also switched parties after realizing how bad the Democratic Party's policies were for the city. "I was a registered Democrat for a brief time because I believed that in order to impact outcomes of elections in NYC, you had to be a Democrat," Vernikov told the Post. "However, seeing what the Democratic Party has done to our country and our city — the policies resulting in out...
    Imperiled and “mad” Democrats slammed President Joe Biden on Wednesday after the catastrophic election that left the Democrat Party disoriented over the defeats in Virginia, New York State, New Jersey, and Texas. “Nobody elected him to be F.D.R., they elected him to be normal and stop the chaos,” said vulnerable Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), suggesting Biden’s radical agenda will have a “bruising” impact on the 2022 midterms, the New York Times reported. Franklin D. Roosevelt, president in the 1930s and among the second wave of “progressivism,” created new federal agencies and enacted sweeping far-left legislation during the great depression. One of FDR’s principle achievements was the creation of the Social Security Administration, which is now insolvent. Spanberger continued criticize Biden’s inability to understand voters’ “kitchen table” concerns that have little to do with enacting controversial new welfare programs. “We were so willing to take seriously a global pandemic, but we’re not willing to say, ‘Yeah, inflation is a problem, and supply chain is a problem, and we don’t have enough workers in our work force,’” Spanberger said. “We gloss over that...
    The Republican red wave from Tuesday’s victories across the nation has inflamed Democrat infighting over President Joe Biden’s radical legislative agenda. The victory that resulted from high turnout among rural voters and Hispanics, along with parents frustrated over Critical Race Theory (CRT) and those who oppose defunding the police, directly contradicts the far-left’s policies and narrative of identity politics. Voters’ rejection of far-left policies has Democrats pointing fingers at each other over who is at fault for the loss. The “moderates” claim radical policies are responsible for the drubbing, while the far-left claims the thrashing was Biden’s fault for not passing his radical reconciliation agenda through Congress quickly enough. Monday morning, an unnamed Democrat congressman from New Jersey told Politico Playbook Biden failed to pass any accomplishments, which hurt the base’s enthusiasm. “Fucking disaster down ballot and way too close at the top. Not enough excitement at top of NJ ticket — Biden, Covid, etc. No accomplishments. Should have passed infrastructure a month ago,” he said. In contrast, a far-left House aide also told Playbook the defeat on Tuesday should not...
    Congressional Democrats have reportedly begun to blame the far-left for the sound drubbing of Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe Tuesday night in Virginia. Politico’s co-Congressional Bureau Chief Heather Caygle said Democrat members are “already texting me blaming progressives for ‘debacle’ in Virginia.” Dem members are already texting me blaming progressives for “debacle” in Virginia https://t.co/MJnlDzW5WF — Heather Caygle (@heatherscope) November 3, 2021 After Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin had a clear lead when the polls closed Tuesday evening, Democrats expressed their frustration with the party’s infighting. The Democrat Party is at odds with one another over certain policies the far-left are demanding to be included within President Joe Biden’s reconciliation framework. Youngkin’s victory in Virginia is giving the Democrats a “sense of unsettlement,” David Axelrod admitted, noting he believes Biden’s radical policies, championed by the far-left, should have been a “return to normalcy.” David Axelrod: “There is a sense of unsettlement. There are a lot of things that are out of control.” I thought Biden was the “return to normalcy”… pic.twitter.com/ATvKolUeO0 — Kyle Martinsen (@KyleMartinsen_) November 3, 2021 CNN’s Jake Tapper said Tuesday...
    Former President Donald Trump slammed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe as an 'apologist' during Monday's tele-rally where he threw his support behind Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin.  'Glenn's running against, as you know, very shady Terry McAuliffe. I know him very well,' Trump told Virginians. 'He's an apologist, and that's all you can say on critical race theory. It just entered his vocabulary a while ago, and now it's there, and now he's trying to get out of it because he sees what it's doing to his numbers. 'He actually said, 'I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should be teaching.' The former president's phone rally lasted approximately six minutes, the Washington Examiner reported.  During that time he addressed several hot button topics including taxes, jobs and issues surrounding children's education, such as critical race theory. The role of critical race theory in Virginia's education system has remained a major topic of debate throughout the gubernatorial race with McAuliffe arguing the teaching does not exist in the state and Youngkin vowing to ban it once and for all. Former President...
    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is blasting Democrats for poor leadership after they stalled the vote on President Joe Biden's $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan amid holdout from party members. McConnell, releasing a statement Saturday, accused the Democrats of 'letting the radical left run Capitol Hill.'  'This unified Democratic government must stop putting radical wish-lists ahead of basic governance or they will thrust our nation into even more foreseeable and avoidable crises on their watch,' he said.  McConnell's criticism comes as Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have each expressed their frustrations with the stalled legislation, emphasizing that passing both the infrastructure bill and reconciliation package is essential for Americans.  Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has accused Democratic leadership of ' letting the radical left run Capitol Hill' The Republican leader called out the Democrats for delaying the infrastructure vote for a third time, arguing that they are unable pass the legislation despite the party controlling the White House and Congress. 'Democrats control Washington but cannot govern,' McConnell said.   'They can't even pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill that President Biden negotiated and Speaker...
    Former Reagan Justice Department official Mark Levin, host of "Life, Liberty & Levin", and author of the upcoming book "American Marxism" sat down with Sean Hannity on Friday for the entire hour of "Hannity" to delve into what he calls the Democrats' "neo-Marxist" mission to destroy America by waging a multi-front war on U.S. institutions, its cultural norms, and its citizens. Hannity called Levin's book a guide to what is going on in America right now as the radical elements of the Democratic Party have come to the forefront as of late, emboldened by full government control and more. "I was doing research and studying the scholarship and who were behind these various movements, critical race theory, the current immigration movement, so-called climate change, the de-growth movement. Transgender movement, which is an attack on the social construct… and I said we have allowed these people to intimidate us long enough. We have allowed these people to use language, we regurgitate their language," Levin said of the "American Marxists" that have taken their cues from the ideology of the movement's namesake....
    Democrat leaders on Wednesday asked the radical left to quit attacking Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) over his opposition to an election takeover bill and filibuster cancelation. Politico Playbook reported: As Manchin remains a holdout on S. 1, Senate Majority Leader CHUCK SCHUMER is telling outside groups not to try to bully Manchin, but to instead focus on the historical and factual arguments related to the legislation, according to sources familiar with his remarks. Playbook also wrote House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R-CA) cautioned members “in a private meeting Monday night” to not “vilify individual senators on the issue (elections takeover bill), according to several people who attended,” likely “referring to Manchin, the only Senate Democrat to publicly announce his opposition to S. 1.” Far-left congress members have “unleashed” anger at Manchin for tanking their agenda thus far, forcing them to either come to the negotiating table in a bipartisan fashion or fail President Joe Biden’s hopes for a win he can champion. For example, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) tweeted his far-left view of Manchin by accusing Manchin of being the “new Mitch McConnell.” Joe Manchin is the new...
    Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb (PA) showed he is moving further towards the radical left in a statement Saturday, saying he believes “the filibuster has to go.” In the series of tweets, he explained his reasoning behind ending the filibuster after the voting that took place in the Senate this past week. Senate Republicans were able to block the legislation meant to establish a commission to investigate the protests and riots that occurred on January 6. “The police who fought for their lives & ours on 1/6 deserved better than this. 5 months & the public STILL doesn’t know why police & military leadership mounted such a poor response to the insurrection, & left those officers fending for themselves,” Lamb wrote in one of the first tweets.

    State Representative and Democrat candidate for New Mexico’s First Congressional District Melanie Stansbury proposed four far-left policies in debate Sunday against Republican Mark Moores. The debate, in which Moores described Stansbury as a radical Democrat, comes before the special election on June 1 for the seat vacated by now-Interior Secretary Deb Haaland. The far-left polices Stansbury articulated in the debate are as follows: Gun Control Stansbury supports banning guns and a gun buyback program while drug trade violence is skyrocketing. “I support reinstating the assault weapons ban and gun buyback programs” because, she said, “our country is facing an epidemic of gun violence” and ” our kids are afraid to go to school.” CBS’s KRQE in Albuquerque reported April 23 that homicides are skyrocketing in drug deal-related incidents. “Drug-related homicides are definitely up this year — quite a bit,” says Gilbert Gallegos of the Albuquerque Police Department. A captain at the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office Nicholas Huffmyer says drugs and violence are linked. “’The lie that people are told is that drug crimes are nonviolent,’ Huffmyer says. And he points to the drug trade as a...
    Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are going after big businesses for being ‘uniformly Democrat’ and their CEOs putting their ‘radical left’ perspectives on full display.  'If you look at the CEOs of the Fortune 100, there are very, very few who you could even plausibly characterize as right of center,' Cruz, a GOP senator from Texas, told The Hill. 'They are almost uniformly Democrat. And they have made the decision to enlist their companies in the political agenda of today's Democratic Party, which is controlled right now by the radical left.' Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is also ramping up his criticism of big business. 'For the past several years, I have been making the case that far too many American companies were prioritizing short-term financial windfalls at the expense of America's families, communities and national security,' Rubio wrote in a statement to The Hill. 'More and more people are coming around to that viewpoint, both in the Republican Party and around the country,' he continued.  Senators Ted Cruz (left) and Marco Rubio (right) are going...
    Tensions among congressional Democrats are reportedly “intensifying” as the Biden White House courts the far-left wing of the party and moderate members sit on the sidelines, concerned that they will be expected to “all just line up” with the radical agenda. This month, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain met with leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), who urged the Biden administration to incorporate a number of far-left agenda items, including climate change, health care, and “family infrastructure” into his jobs plan. CPC Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who attended the meeting alongside Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Cori Bush (D-MO), Mark Pocan (D-WI), and Barbara Lee (D-CA), told Politico Playbook that they had a “very good discussion” about how the “Build Back Better” plan could redistribute wealth. They also pressed the Biden White House to commit to implementing a $15 minimum wage, floating the possibility of nixing the filibuster to make it a reality. Klain has also met with far-left “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), the former of whom has a history of...
    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said it would help him “more than anything” if the Democrat Party campaigned against him in West Virginia, pressuring him to do away with the filibuster. “What are they going to do, they going to go into West Virginia and campaign against me? Please, that would help me more than anything,” Manchin told the New York Times. “I’m concerned about the House pushing an agenda that would be hard for us to maintain the majority,” Manchin said about the legislation the House Democrats are sending to the Senate floor. Manchin’s comments come after Vice President Kamala Harris in early February attempted to pressure Manchin into voting for the 1.9 trillion coronavirus package by going on a local news station in West Virginia. Manchin didn’t take kindly to Harris’s interview. “I couldn’t believe it. No one called me,” Manchin said then. “We’re going to try to find a bipartisan pathway forward, I think we need to. But we need to work together. That’s not a way of working together.” Manchin has also seemed to relish his linchpin position of...
    Democrats are struggling to find a balance after a “blue wave” failed to materialize in the U.S. House of Representatives, as the radical left members of the caucus up their demands for far-left proposals — from defunding the police to socialized medicine — that some Democrats believe contributed to their losses. On election night, the Fox News Decision Desk projected that Democrats would not only retain control of the House but expand their majority “by at least five seats.” The latter did not come to fruition. Rather, Republicans experienced what some described as “shocking” gains in the House. Prior to the election, Democrats held a 232-197 majority. The GOP is expected to net at least 12 seats, ousting Democrats in several key races. The GOP’s strong performance was unexpected, particularly among Democrats, who remained confident that they would expand their majority in the House. Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chair Cheri Bustos (D-IL) has since announced that they would conduct a “post mortem” of their strategy as a caucus. “Something went wrong,” Bustos said. “They all pointed to one political environment — but...
    Joe Biden (D) attempted to put some distance between himself and the radical left, effectively dissing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and dismissing his wing’s policy proposals — from the Green New Deal to Medicare for All — several times during the first presidential debate Tuesday evening. Many progressives reluctantly accepted Biden securing the Democrat nomination despite two far-left progressives — Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sanders, making headway throughout the process. During the primary, Sanders earned the endorsement of the far-left members of the “Squad,” such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who recently expressed hope that the radical left will be able to push Biden even farther to the left, should he take the presidency. “I think, overall, we can likely push Vice President Biden in a more progressive direction across policy issues,” the New York lawmaker told Just the News in an interview earlier this month. “There are some areas where we just fundamentally disagree, but that’s okay. I think it’s important to acknowledge that we can have, in some cases, very large disagreements — it doesn’t mean that we’re trying to undermine the party...

    Ahead of his trip to Wisconsin, President Trump tore into Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and other Democrats, accusing them of stoking “left-wing political violence” in cities across the nation. Repeating claims made during last week’s GOP convention, Trump sought to tie Biden and his party to the unrest across the country amid protests over racial injustice and police brutality, noting that the unrest is happening in "Democrat-run cities." “The violence is fueled by the rhetoric of far-left politicians,” Trump said during a press briefing at the White House. “The rioters and Joe Biden have a side and they’re both on the side of the radical left.” Trump’s comments come a day before he is expected to travel to Kenosha, Wisc., a city that is reeling from protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot seven times in the back after police responded to a call about a domestic dispute. Demonstrators are calling for the officer who authorities say shot Blake -- Rusten Sheskey -- to be fired and face attempted murder charges. The president's...
