Forget Hillary Clinton….THIS Person Will Be the Democrat Nominee

From, by Allen West, 08/07/15 –

hillary-sad-300x180In full disclosure, I’m writing this missive about 45 minutes before the GOP prime-time presidential debate. I watched the first debate and, as I predicted yesterday, Carly Fiorina blew the doors off and she is indeed the breakout candidate. She’d previously only attained about a 40% name recognition. That will now change. She displayed a Margaret Thatcher-like directness, strength, composure, poise and competence. As I stated previously, her speech at the Reagan Library was spectacular. She’s certainly deserved attention.

But the purpose of this missive is not about the GOP presidential primary. Let’s ponder something that no one’s probably going to consider today — the Democrat party presidential primary. Needless to say, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chaffee and Jim Webb are not part of the equation.

The recent polling evidences that Bernie Sanders is closing the gap on Hillary Clinton — statistical tie in New Hampshire. Mrs. Clinton is losing steam and the far left which owns the Democrat party — there is no separation between socialism and the party of the donkey — does not want her. Mrs. Clinton is not rallying the liberal progressive base —no great emotional draw. And everyone knows the liberal progressive left needs to run on emotion, a historic moment, not on who they are — advocates of wealth redistribution, nationalizing of production, expansion of the welfare state, social egalitarianism and the secular state. The left is all about identity politics, but Hillary Clinton is just not that identity — they tried the whole first woman president thing, but it ain’t clicking.

So what do the Democrats do? They find the emotional candidate who will enable what Obama stated in his speech to the African Union, “I could run for a third term and win.” Therefore, enter one Joe Biden, Obama’s vice president.

First, the Obamas despise the Clintons and they realize that if Hillary and Bill Clinton return to 1600 Pennsylvania, they’ll be relegated to being a footnote. Barack Obama’s ego is so grand, he needs to be viewed as the progressive socialist Ronald Reagan and desires his agenda to continue. Obama wants to be the one who coronates his successor, someone who will be indebted to him. Obama wants to be able to turn over his machine to someone he can trust. That is not Hillary Clinton.

Secondly, Joe Biden will run on what the left needs: emotion. We all offer our condolences for the loss of Vice President Biden’s son Beau. However, we as a nation must not fall into the sympathy mode and believe that Vice President Biden deserves to be president because his dying son said he should run. America deserves a leader, not just someone we feel sorry for, but that will be the mantra and rallying cry — that this is for Beau and Joe. The theme will be “It’s just right for Joe” and “Why not Joe.”

Being president is not about a sense of entitlement or just because. And you already hear folks saying who cares about Vice President Biden’s gaffes; he’s a swell and likable guy. That, ladies and gents, is what Joe Biden will bring to the table, the charm, everyday fella likable quality that’s absent from one Hillary Clinton. Regardless of his funny ways, no one believes Joe Biden is untrustworthy. What we may end up getting is a Boris Yeltsin — ok, look it up — who was a fun guy.

Bernie Sanders is indeed garnering support, but he’s not a member of the Democrat party; he’s a registered Independent, declared socialist, who caucuses with the Democrats. That will eventually be an issue. But the real issue for Bernie Sanders is that he is an old white guy with no identity politics gimmick. He is rallying the far left progressive base, but in the end, his image is horrible. And so what do the Democrats do if they reject Sanders for Biden — how do they win the liberal socialist base?

Lastly, there’s one other piece needed to solidify the liberal progressive dream ticket, and that is Elizabeth Warren as the Democrat party nominee for vice president. Warren is the darling of the far left and Massachusetts has no concern with replacing her with another far left liberal Senator. And Warren will bring the full bear of energy for the leftists as well as being that historic moment — first woman vice president.

So in this game of thrones and political chess, the GOP had best wake up and prepare for this to happen or else they will get bushwhacked. If the GOP runs the same ol’ white guy ticket, they’ll have once again lost by not realizing visuals are very important in the new arena of political American Idol. I do not consent to the politics of identity politics, but I am savvy enough to recognize the tactics of my adversary and make the proper adjustments. Will the GOP? There are many options for conservatives to present a challenging ticket that takes away the desired advantage Obama and the left are going to seek.

Hillary Clinton is damaged goods now. She cannot be protected and the rats are scurrying on the USS Liberal Progressive Titanic; they just hit a big iceberg. I just hope the GOP doesn’t find a way to steal defeat from the jaws of victory, again. America is in need of leaders; no more gimmicks. The Democrats will offer well-marketed gimmicks, as they did with Barack Obama. The GOP needs to drop the mantra of wanting to be a lighter version of the left drawing in pretty pastels. We need someone who will paint in bold colors. A Biden/Warren ticket will be formidable, until we come to understand they’re just a continuation of the aberration of which we have endured the past six and a half years.

I will take this prediction to the bank.

    snip above – ” A Biden/Warren ticket will be formidable, until we come to understand they’re just a continuation of the aberration of which we have endured the past six and a half years.”

    Six and a half years of aberration ? Really ? So does RINO West just conveniently turn a blind eye to the outrageous conduct of the previous 8 years?………you know- the criminal Bush-Cheney syndicate , who controlled ALL 3 BRANCHES of government for 6 full years , benignly ALLOWED the 9-11 attacks , but gave you lowly serfs the “Patriot Act” – Warner Defense Act – DHS POLICE STATE , lied us in to never-ending wars, bailed out their bankster OWNERS , left the borders WIDE OPEN , passed blatantly socialist Medicare prescription plans, and appointed JOHN ROBERTS to SCOTUS who cast the deciding vote FOR Obamacare, put NAFTA on steroids to destroy our manufacturing to Asia and other 3rd-world slums so our middle class will disappear, ad nauseum.

    snip from the Rutherford Institute –

    ” Incredibly, no matter how many times we see this played out, Americans continue to naively buy into the idea that politics matter, as if there really were a difference between the Republicans and Democrats (there’s not).

    As if Barack Obama proved to be any different from George W. Bush (he has not). As if Hillary Clinton’s values are any different from Donald Trump’s (with both of them, money talks). As if when we elect a president, we’re getting someone who truly represents “we the people” rather than the corporate state (in fact, in the oligarchy that is the American police state, an elite group of wealthy donors is calling the shots).

    Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion.

    In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same. It’s no secret that both parties support endless war, engage in out-of-control spending, ignore the citizenry’s basic rights, have no respect for the rule of law, are bought and paid for by Big Business, care most about their own power, and have a long record of expanding government and shrinking liberty.

    Most of all, both parties enjoy an intimate, incestuous history with each other and with the moneyed elite that rule this country. Don’t be fooled by the smear campaigns and name-calling. They’re just useful tactics of the psychology of hate that has been proven to engage voters and increase voter turnout while keeping us at each other’s throats.

    Despite the jabs the candidates volley at each other for the benefit of the cameras, they’re a relatively chummy bunch away from the spotlight, presenting each other with awards (remember when Jeb Bush presented Hillary Clinton with a Liberty Medal for her service to the country), attending each other’s weddings (Bill and Hillary had front-row seats for Trump’s 2005 wedding), and embracing with genuine affection.

    Trump’s various donations to the Clintons (he donated to Hillary’s Senate campaigns, as well as the Clinton Foundation) are not unusual. Remember, FOX News mogul Rupert Murdoch actually hosted a fundraiser for Hillary’s Senate reelection campaign back in 2006 and contributed to her presidential campaign two years later. In fact, FOX News has reportedly been one of Hillary’s biggest donors for the better part of two decades.”

    “The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas.”—Journalist Lewis Lapham

    But the terminally LOW INFO childish RepubliCON voters continue to lap up DRIVEL from the likes of Allen West, Eric Erickson, FAUX News and other toadies to mammon.

    just remember what comedian and astute commentator George Carlin had to say about the matter:

    The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

    They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. …The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.
