Hillary Clinton is way left of what would be considered a Moderate. Her leanings are way left, but we do not know of any Frank Marshall Davis connection, although she did work for Alinsky and has expressed great admiration for Alinsky. Never the less, many in the Democratic Party (Marxist/Progressives) do not consider her far left enough.
It may be time for Hillary Clinton to take the challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders more seriously. Sanders is surging in the race for the party’s presidential nomination. The Vermont Senator, a self-proclaimed socialist, has drawn huge crowds of supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire, and pulled within striking distance of Clinton in some Granite State polls. He also appeared to win many converts recently in Colorado.
“This is not a protest campaign,” Sanders declared at a breakfast with reporters in Washington last week. “This is a campaign to win.”
Most of Elizabeth Warren’s (remember the lady who said she was Indian to help further her career) supporters are switching their allegiance to Sanders now that they are convinced Warren will not be a candidate.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is pushing for legislation that he says will bolster pensions for millions of Americans.
Sanders, who has emerged as a top candidate against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic (Marxist/Progressive) presidential nomination, has joined Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown (Ohio) and Tammy Baldwin (Wis.) in introducing the Keep Our Pension Promises Act, which aims to strengthen pension plans.
The legislation would reverse a provision, included in a spending bill passed last year that allowed pension plans to cut retiree benefits in an effort to shore up the plans' finances.
Sanders said during a rally outside the Capitol late last week that without a repeal of the provision, "retirees all over this country could see their pensions cut by 30 percent or more. We cannot let that happen."
Greek Prime Minister Tsipras, a self-proclaimed communist, said the "blind insistence" on cutting Greek pensions will only worsen the country's already dire financial crisis, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wrote in a German newspaper commentary.
"The blind insistence of cuts (in pensions) in a country with a 25 percent unemployment rate and where half of all the young people are unemployed will only cause a further worsening of the already dramatic social situation," Tsipras wrote.
He said that pensions are the only source of income for countless families in Greece. In Athens, Tsipras also rejected pension cuts that creditors are seeking to unlock aid.
Both Greece and the United States have debt that is greater than their GDP. Both Greece and the United States have to borrow money in order to make the required payments on their debt. Both Greece and the United States spend and have spent for years amounts much greater than their receipts. Both countries are bankrupt economically and morally. The difference is that Greece, with a much smaller economy than the United States, is no longer able to act as if they are in charge of their own destiny.
The economic collapse of Greece will have a devastating effect on its own population and a much less effect on the rest of the world. The economic collapse of the United States will have a devastating effect on its own population and a devastating effect on the rest of the world. The economic collapse of the United States will bring about a new alignment of power in the world. The only rationale conclusion is that evil forces will take control.
The collapse of Greece and the United States has been brought about because of the Marxist movement, that very movement that has taken control of the Democratic Party. This movement gained traction with Wilson, gained acceptance under Franklin Roosevelt, and has been moving forward ever since. Under Obama the Marxists no longer try to camouflage who they are. Under Obama the Marxists openly have proclaimed Marxist doctrine and have openly declared the end of the United States Constitution by word and deed.
Today, a self-proclaimed socialist is accepted as a legitimate candidate for president under the Democratic ticket and receives wide acclaim. This should not be surprising; a Marxist holds that office today as a Democrat and the Democratic front runner is a practicing Marxist having worked for Alinsky. These are facts. These are not conjecture or opinion.
