Showing its face

At some point, a rational person must simply marvel at the Democratic Party and its pell-mell rush to the political Left.

During its first two presidential debates, the party offered up enough new “programs” to further bankrupt the United States, everything from forgiving more than $1 trillion in student loan debt to free health care for illegal aliens. The candidates promises they would use executive orders to confiscate guns, they promised to raise taxes, they promised to provide guaranteed income for all, kill off private insurance, open our borders and abolish the electoral college.

Make no mistake, their promised giveaways and usurpation of the Constitution promise to bankrupt American fiscally and spiritually.

With the freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her gang of America-hating congresswomen – Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley, of Massachusetts, and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota – leading its sprint to the far Left, the party is showing its face to America with stunning regularity.

“They’re socialists. They’re anti-Semitic,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., declared on Fox & Friends during the weekend. “They stand for all the things that most Americans disagree with. Make them the face of the future of the Democratic Party. You will destroy the Democratic Party.”

He advised President Donald Trump, who earlier told the four to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” to “aim higher.” Three of the four, it should be noted, were born in the United States.

“They are American citizens. They won an election. Take on their policies,” Graham advised.

It is good advice. The Left’s policies fly in the face of common sense and reason. With these four at the forefront of the stampede to the Left, Americans will be able to see what the Left has to offer. The only thing better for conservatives and right-thinking Americans would be for Hillary Clinton to announce for the presidency.

With the 2020 presidential election more than a year away the fireworks are just beginning.

    You’ve gone too far with your inclusion of “… gang of America-hating congresswomen…”

    For this Anchorage Daily Planet editor to liken dissent to ‘American-hating’ is wrong, unjust, and even un-American.

    Dissent is a valued right and prized American tradition. Editors exercise dissent all the time. Although some believe they have a monopoly on dissent – they don’t.

    Dear Ms. McLoed:

    Dissent is not a valued right when it is dishonest, and also more than bordering on treason. One’s right to dissent is not a right to lie, spread misinformation, dis-information, defame an individual with false information, engineer information to achieve an agenda, the list could go on. Also, how else can one describe the behaviors undermining our constitution, laws, and the legal citizens of this nation other than “America-hating”? They certainly act like enemies of our country. What word describes the appearance of their actions? I think America-hating fits fairly well.

    Truly AMAZING … Out of 20+ Presidential Candidates on the Democratic ticket, not a one of them reflect any measure of American values, not a one of them reflect any measure of Honor – Duty – Country, not a one of them reflect any measure of Liberty – Freedom.

    HOWEVER, they ‘ALL’ appear to be in alignment with a socialist view point that, if for some unimaginable reason did actually get elected, life in America would definitely change, and NOT for the better!

    THEREFORE, it is imperative that All-Hands- On-Deck and Conservative need to show-up to vote in this next election. it truly is a matter of great importance.

    Pointing out Trump’s tweet “from which they came from” is correct in identifying it as a huge mistake. It was not more than a week ago that AOC’s stupidity had nearly made her fame merely 15 minutes when she called Nancy Pelosi “racist”. Make no mistake: AOC and her ilk are very stupid and lack common sense. This should eventually destroy them, much as Sarah Palin’s stupidity destroyed her political career. However, Donald Trump’s latest blockbuster tweet in the middle of AOC’s own turmoil has given her a reprieve. She will now live to fight another day with the negative media attention back on Trump. Trump would do well to remember, “When your enemy makes a mistake, don’t interrupt him!”

    Ms McLeod evidently haven’t heard what hate these women are spewing. In my opinion, this group of women have no respect for themselves, therefore, have no respect for anyone else or anything. If I were President Trump, I would not dignify anything any of them said with a response. So instead you dis the editors.
    Give me a break. I also am so sick these women calling anyone who disagrees with them a Racist.
