LOL: De Blasio is no one’s choice for president in Iowa

From NY Post: Mayor de Blasio didn’t even register in a new Iowa poll that shows former Vice President Biden’s support slipping but Pete Buttigieg surging among the field of Democratic presidential hopefuls in Iowa.

De Blasio, who’s been in Iowa campaigning over the weekend, and Wayne Messam, the mayor of Miramar, Fla., were the only two candidates in the field of 23 not listed as either a first or second choice for president in the Des Moines Register/ CNN poll released late Saturday.

”There’s always been a question mark as to how many (candidates) can get any real traction,” said J. Ann Selzer, the president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the survey. ”And we gave them every opportunity to show that they have some kind of constituency here. But there’s a fair number who, their constituency just isn’t very big.”

De Blasio will attend a major Democratic Party fundraiser Sunday evening in Cedar Rapids, skipping the Puerto Rican Day Parade, the first sitting mayor to miss the celebration.

Biden is still the front-runner with 24 percent of the support of likely caucus-goers, but that’s down from December’s survey when he registered 32 percent of support, the survey said.

The race for second place is a statistical dead heat with Sen. Bernie Sanders at 16 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren amassing 15 percent and Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., gaining 14 percent.
The survey shows both Warren and Buttigieg making strong gains after polling at just 9 percent and 1 percent, respectively, in March.

Sen. Kamala Harris of California is the only other candidate among the field with a significant level of support with 7 percent.

The poll was taken between June 2 and June 5, before Biden flip-flopped on his stand on the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funds for most abortions. Last Thursday, he came out against the amendment.

The Iowa caucuses will be held Feb. 3, 2020.

The poll surveyed 600 likely Democratic caucus-goers. It has a plus/minus 4 percent margin of error.

Joe Biden: Second Amendment doesn’t mean you’re entitled to own a gun

The 2020 presidential campaign season has already begun.

New Hampshire, like Iowa, is an early primary state. That’s why Joe Biden went to New Hampshire last Monday and Tuesday, May 13-14, 2019, blabbering about “restoring the working class in America”.

But Biden also said something that should alarm every gun-owner.

Unreported by other news media, AWR Hawkins of Breitbart is the only reporter of the 6-7 other media accounts I’ve read who took note of this. In Hawkins’ words:

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the “Second Amendment exists” but stressed during his speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday that it does not say everyone is “entitled” to own a gun.

Biden, who was taking questions at a small outdoor venue . . . also spoke about past gun bans he supported. He specifically referenced the 1994 “assault weapons” ban and noted that it also “limited the number of bullets in a clip.” Additionally, he spoke about being former President Barack Obama’s point man for gun control following the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He said, “There are so many other things we can do to make schools safer, other than arming teachers.” He did not specify, however, what those other things are. Rather, he pivoted to the next question.

Since announcing his candidacy on April 25, Biden has skyrocketed in the polls to be the leading candidate among the plethora of Demonrat presidential aspirants. Biden has more than tripled his margin of advantage over his closest competitor – Senator Sanders – from 4 points to 20 points, according to Morning Consult.

Christa Case Bryant of The Christian Science Monitor says Biden’s “front-runner status can be attributed in part to the strong support he’s getting from African American voters. But it’s not only that…. Biden’s calls to unify a deeply divided country appear to be resonating with many voters whose No. 1 priority is ending what they see as a dangerous presidency that is corroding American democracy…average people who yearn not only for more comfortable financial circumstances but also a deeper sense of dignity and pride.”

“A deeper sense of dignity and pride”?

Gag me with a spoon.

You mean like this?

And lest we forget: “Vice President Joe Biden likes to swim nude in front of female Secret Service agents,” August 2, 2014.

God help us from America’s low information voters!

Smash the Church and the Gospel spreads quicker

The demons that empowered the Bolsheviks still have one objective: Hurt the Lord by hurting His people


Newsweek: CHINA DEMOLISHES ANOTHER CHURCH, SPARKING FEARS OF CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHRISTIANITY

by Christina Zhao – 01/11/2018

“The Golden Lampstand, a well-known Evangelical megachurch in the city of Linfen, Shanxi province, was dramatically demolished with explosives on Tuesday…”

“Last December, the only Catholic Church in Zhifang, a village near Shaanxi, was destroyed for no apparent reason, 20 years after it opened…”

Read article at https://www.newsweek.com/china-demolishes-another-church-sparking-fears-campaign-against-christianity-777931


As cunning as the devil’s minions are, they are too self deceived to learn that this tactic fails every time

  • Jesus crucified – Result: a new and better Covenant
  • Jerusalem Church crushed – Result: gospel spreads through all Judea and Samaria
  • Jews oppress Paul –  Result: Paul spreads gospel to Rome

Moving forward we see the same principle

China strikes the church, thinking this will break them. Real result, Christians meet quietly in very small numbers, and many more are converted. Why? Because the message spreads much better in quiet earnest conversations and prayers than in big meetings. People aren’t dazzled into the kingdom by massive meetings, they are loved into the family God one at a time.

We see the same devils attempting to move into position the crush the church in America

The LGBT movement is trying to make it a crime to use the wrong gender pronoun. They are still trying to set up bakers in positions where they end up crossing the law when their conscience forbids working for gay weddings.

And the satanic principalities of the Bolsheviks 100 years ago are plainly at work in AOC and Bernie Sanders today, with the same genocidal intent.

And let’s not even waste time on the subject of Fake News.

Last night my dreams troubled me 

As I searched my thoughts for help I remembered a scripture that has brought me peace on many dark nights during the past 40+ years of my christian walk, and it worked for me this morning.

Romans 8:35-38 answers these threats with comfort and encouragement: 

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

‘For your sake we face death all day long; 
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ 

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,  neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

PEACE

75% of Americans disagree with Bernie Sanders giving criminals in prison ‘right’ to vote

In a CNN town hall meeting on April 23, the socialist senator from Vermont and 2020 presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders said:

“Yes, even for terrible people because once you start chipping away — you say, ‘That guy committed a terrible crime, we’re not going to let him vote,’ or ‘that person did that,’ you’re running down a slippery slope. So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote…I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Sanders’ proposal that convicted criminals in prison should have the right to vote was too much even for rabid anti-Trumper Cher.

In a tweet that she since deleted, she wrote: “Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murderers⁉️ Rapists⁉️ Child Molesters⁉️ BOSTON BOMBERS.…STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE⁉️”

According to a new Business Insider poll:

  • The vast majority of Americans — roughly 75% — do not support Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposal to enfranchise all prisoners.
  • 20% said those convicted of non-violent offenses should be allowed to vote.
  • Only 15% of respondents said all prisoners — regardless of their crimes — should keep their voting rights while behind bars. 
  • 30% said currently incarcerated people should lose their right to vote, but be re-enfranchised when they’re released.
  • 24% said those convicted of violent felonies should permanently lose voting rights.
  • Approximately 10% of respondents said they “don’t know” how they feel about this issue.
  • Unsurprisingly, the poll found a stark divide in views on this issue along party lines. Nearly half (47%) of likely Democratic primary voters but only 21% of likely Republican primary voters support enfranchising prisoners in some capacity.

Even Cher balks at Bernie Sanders’ proposal that felons in prison have right to vote

Democrats have gone so far left, even rabid anti-Trumper Cher, who fantasized putting President Trump in a “straight jacket,” is balking at their latest proposals.

In a tweet on April 14, 2019, 72-year-old Cher questioned why some wanted Los Angeles to take in even more immigrants when it already has a large homeless population:

I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+🇺🇸Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More

9 days later, in a tweet that she since deleted, Cher expressed her incredulity at socialist senator and 2020 presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders saying convicted criminals in prison shouldn’t be deprived of the right to vote.

In a CNN town hall meeting on April 23, Sanders said:

“Yes, even for terrible people because once you start chipping away — you say, ‘That guy committed a terrible crime, we’re not going to let him vote,’ or ‘that person did that,’ you’re running down a slippery slope. So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote…I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Reacting with disbelief, Cher tweeted, “Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murderers⁉️ Rapists⁉️ Child Molesters⁉️ BOSTON BOMBERS.…STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE⁉️”

Of course, none of this means Cher has been “red-pilled” and is “woke” because she will still vote for whoever the 2020 Demonrat presidential nominee will be.

$16.2 trillion tax hikes to fund millionaire-socialist Bernie Sanders’ Medicare For All plan

Although he had never worked at a productive job in his life, Bernie Sanders, 77, the Demonrat senator of Vermont who fancies himself an “independent” but actually identifies as an outright socialist, is that curious oxymoronic creature — a millionaire socialist with three homes.

One of the three homes is a lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, which Sanders purchased for $600,000 just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which he sold out his idealistic millennial supporters by enthusiastically endorsing his rival, one-percenter Hillary Clinton who had used the Democratic National Committee to undermine his presidential campaign. The Democratic National Convention even called a SWAT team on Sanders’ delegates.

On February 19, 2019, Sanders joined the ever-growing list of Demonrat freaks and communists by declaring his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election, pledging to run a campaign focused on “transforming” the U.S. and “creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice” — blah, blah, blah. Shedding his political identity as an “Independent” as readily as a snake sheds its skin, Sanders will, once again, run as a Democrat, as he did in 2016.

3½ hours after announcing his candidacy, Sanders raised over $1 million from small donations. Within a week of his announcement, Sanders had raised $10 million from 359,914 donors, including some 12,000 registered Republicans.

Central to his campaign is a “Medicare for All” plan. What you may not know is that the plan is not just for all Americans or U.S. citizens, whether Medicare age (65 years) or not, Sanders means to extend Medicare to all residents in the United States, including the tens of millions who are here illegally. Even Obamacare doesn’t do that, but instead provides medical coverage to only U.S. citizens and “lawfully present” immigrants. Sanders’ Medicare for All, however, will not only prohibit the government from denying medical coverage because of “citizenship status”, it will cover even those who can’t meet the loose definition of resident — “Even if an individual is not covered under a broad definition of ‘residency’ by the secretary of HHS, the federal government can take steps ‘to ensure that every person in the United States has access to health care.'” (The Blaze)

Sanders’ insanely expansive and expensive Medicare for All will have to be funded — with what he calls tax hike “options”.

According to an estimate by Americans for Tax Reform, a nonprofit, 501(c)(4) taxpayer advocacy group founded in 1985 by Grover Norquist at the request of President Ronald Reagan, Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal will increase taxes by $16.2 trillion over ten years, which “would hit American families at every income level and businesses large and small.”

The dizzying list of proposed tax hikes will include:

  1. A new 4% employee payroll tax: Sanders would impose another 4% payroll tax on top of existing payroll taxes. This new 4% payroll tax will be “income-based premium paid by employees,” which will  increase taxes on American families and individuals by $3.9 trillion.
  2. A new 7% employer payroll tax: Sanders would impose another 7% payroll tax on employees which he calls an “income-based premium paid by employers”, estimated to be a $3.5 trillion tax increase over ten years.
  3. Eliminating health tax “expenditures”: Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal would ban employer-provided insurance and repeal the deduction for health care and the Health Savings Accounts utilized by about 25 million U.S. families, mainly the middle class. The deduction for cafeteria plans and the medical expense deduction is also eliminated. All of which will increase taxes on families and businesses by $4.2 trillion.
  4. 70% top tax bracket for ordinary income and capital gains income, which would make America the highest income tax rate in the world. According to the Tax Foundation, a top 70% rate for ordinary income and capital gains income above $10 million will raise $51.4 billion over a decade. After accounting for macroeconomic effects, the proposal would actually cost the government $63.5 billion because the proposal would suppress investment and economic growth.
  5. 77% death tax: Currently, the death tax applies to estates over $11 million and applies a 40% rate. Under Sanders’ proposal, the death tax would kick in at $3.5 million with a rate of 45%. He also proposes raising the death tax rate to 77% for inheritances. All of which will increase taxes by $2.2 trillion over ten years.
  6. Wealth tax: Sanders proposes an annual wealth tax of 1 percent kicking in above $21 million in assets. Sanders estimates the proposal will increase taxes by $1.3 trillion over ten years.
  7. Bank tax: Sanders proposes a tax on financial institutions totaling $800 billion over ten years.
  8. Broaden the self employment tax: Sanders would require business owners to report more of their business income as salary, increasing the amount of self-employment tax owed, which would increase taxes by $247 billion over ten years.

U.S. national debt is already over $22 TRILLION. Imagine what Medicare for All taxes would do to our national debt. It would kill this country.

Bernie Sanders hires an illegal as his 2020 presidential campaign secretary

Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union in 1988

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt), 77, is a self-identified socialist who, paradoxically, is a millionaire with three homes.

One of the three homes is a lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, which Sanders purchased for $600,000 just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which he sold out his idealistic millennial supporters by enthusiastically endorsing his rival, one-percenter Hillary Clinton, who had used the Democratic National Committee to undermine his presidential campaign. The Democratic National Convention even called a SWAT team on Sanders’ delegates.

On February 19, 2019, Sanders declared his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election, pledging to run a campaign focused on “transforming” the U.S. and “creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.” Shedding his political identity as an “Independent” as readily as a snake sheds its skin, Sanders will, once again, run as a Democrat, as he did in 2016.

3½ hours after announcing his candidacy, Sanders raised over $1 million from small donations. Within a week of his announcement, Sanders had raised $10 million from 359,914 donors, including:

  • About 12,000 registered Republican donors.
  • 39% of the donations came from people who did not donate to Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.

Consistent with his fellow Demonrats, Bernie Sanders is utterly lawless.

Joseph Simonson reports for the Washington Examiner that on February 27, 2019, Sanders’ campaign announced the hiring of an illegal alien — Bélen Sisa, 25 — as its deputy national press secretary who, being an “undocumented immigrant,” likely won’t be eligible to vote in the 2020 election.

Sisa, an Arizona leftist activist, admits she was brought to the United States illegally from Argentina by her parents at age six. She is currently protected from deportation under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

That would explain her political activism despite her illegal status:

  • In 2016, she worked as a page to the Arizona delegation at the Democratic National Convention and in Latino outreach for Sanders’ 2016 campaign.
  • She was arrested at least twice for protests:
    • In 2017 when Sisa was a college senior, she was arrested for a protest outside the Senate Hart Office Building.
    • A few weeks later, she was jailed for her role in a sit-in outside of the office of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). While in jail, Sisa told reporters that she organized a “prison strike.” Both protests were over immigration reform and a demand that Congress pass the DREAM Act — a bill that would permanently legalize children like Sisa who were brought into the U.S. illegally. Calling her daugher “so brave,” Sisa’s mother, Isabel O’Neal, said: “DACA is expiring every day. Hers is going to expire in one year and what are we going to do with all of these youth? Congress has to pass the DREAM Act.”

In a Facebook post, Sisa wrote about being selected as the deputy press secretary for Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign:

“This is really emotional for me. I can’t help but think of 18-year-old Belén, who felt hopeless and powerless to the anti-immigrant attacks and policies that were holding her back from her dreams. I can’t help but think of the generations of sacrifice my family has had to do for me to get here. Never in our wildest dreams did we think I’d be making moves like these.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was appointed – not elected

AOC’s arrogance implies an invisible hand

This creature came from nowhere and speaks arrogantly of being the new boss in the Democrat Party, telling even Joe Lieberman that his time is past. Where does her cockiness come from? The following video will start to unmask AOC and her invisible backers.

Don’t look at her stupidity and take her as being inconsequential. That is the mistake America made with another blank slate named Obama.

The Marxism this creature is forcing into the American system is as deadly as a rattlesnake. We need to unmask her and her backers at every opportunity. We need to put a spotlight on her. Evil hates light because light reveals the truth.

Let the unmasking begin!
