116th United States Congress
The 116th United States Congress is noted for its lack of accomplishments and abuse of legislative oversight powers to harass the President and his family.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi made significant rule changes to the 116th Congress. She greatly expanded the size of the House Counsel Office, and authorized them to challenge the U.S. Justice Department in court over the constitutionality of Obamacare.
Critics say Pelosi essentially created her own Justice Department within the Legislative Branch, and nothing is stopping her from creating her own FBI.
Pelosi lifted term limitations on committee chairpersons and buried the Gingrich reform requiring members to pay their own race discrimination and sexual harassment settlements. Additionally, staffers can be forced to sign non-disclosure agreements without the agreements first being vetted by the House Ethics Committee. This, coupled with the expansion of civil servants on staff, is a potentially frightening development.Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed targeting dissenting Democrats, and providing violent activists a list of their names, and unleash the jackboots. Ocasio-Cortez
"suggested in a closed-door meeting of House Democrats that she would help liberal activists unseat moderate Democrats skirting the party line, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez said according to the Washington Post.
“She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” spokesperson Corbin Trent said, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."

The Democrat-controlled House was unproductive, focusing on opposing President Trump over passing legislation.
In August 2018, Gallup reported that 57% of Democrats had a positive view of socialism, the first time more Democrats thought highly of it compared to capitalism, which was at 47%. Although the Democrat establishment was already very left-wing, the base began electing anti-establishment Democrats who were even further to the Left, and Democrat presidential candidates tried to move as far to the left as possible. Nancy Pelosi, an Assad apologist who violated the Logan Act in 2007, was elected Speaker.
In Marxist–Leninist and Maoist theory, a United front is a coalition of leftist organizations that collude for the purpose of taking over a government. In the 116th Congress, the Committees of Correspondence for Democratic Socialism, Democratic Socialists of America, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and Communist Party of the United States formally created a united front of the nation's four largest Communist organizations to take over the Democrat Party. The umbrella group is known as the Left Inside/Outside Project and consists of 57,000 community organizers.
The DSA, with the slogan, "No borders, no walls, no USA at all," elected The Squad to the House under the Democrat Party name brand, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab, Ilhan Elmi Omar and Ayanna Pressley. The DSA is an affiliate of the Socialist International, a worldwide organization with 170 political parties and organization from all continents. Democrats became so far-Left that George McGovern's official 1972 campaign agenda was moderate-to-conservative in comparison.
Flushed with their midterm victory in 2018, House Democrats refused to take up the serious business of the country, such as immigration reform, trade, repair of decaying infrastructure, the opioid epidemic, or reforms that might actually reduce gun violence. Chairman Eliot Engel of the Foreign Affairs Committee announced he would dissolve the terrorism subcommittee and replace it with a Trump investigation subcommittee. Notorious anti-Semite Ilhan Omar was appointed to the committee. In keeping with the spirit of "change" Democrats promised if they took over the House, several members came under investigation for sleeping with paid staff members and exploiting the power inequities involved. Freshman Progressive Rep. Katie Hill, a member of the LGBT+ community, was found to have a white supremacist tattoo when a paid staffer and spurned female lover leaked revenge porn. During a House congressional hearing Democrats implied Housing Secretary Ben Carson was an "OREO." Rep. Ted Lieu delivered a despicable racist attack on journalist Candace Owens in the midst of Judiciary Committee hearing chaired be Jerrold Nadler who, without apology, rebuked Owens for complaining about it.
In January 2019, Antifa leader José Alcoff, who had previously advocated for murder, was arrested in connection with an attack on two U.S. Marines a few months earlier. Alcoff was working with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB is a corrupt bureaucracy created out of the 2008 Financial Crisis and Stimulus bill under the doctrine of 'not letting a crisis go to waste', whose purpose is to funnel government contracts and federal money to far leftist media consulting firms to aid Democrat electoral aims. It is the brainchild of Elizabeth Warren who served as its first head.
Former Kentucky Democrat Party chair and congressman Jerry Lundergan faced allegations that he made illegal donations totaling $45,000 to his daughter, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' 2014 U.S. Senate race. Lundergen hired Marc Elias of the Perkins Coie law firm, the firm that handled payments to FusionGPS on behalf of the 2016 Clinton campaign and DNC to frame candidate Donald Trump on bogus accusations of Russian collusion.
When Democrat megadonor and two-time convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on child sex trafficking charges of dozens of young girls between 2002 and 2005, Speaker Pelosi's daughter braced the party faithful for more bad news to come in a tweet: "It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated." This came just days before Robert Mueller was to testify about why he allowed a pedophile to walk free who gave supposed "evidence" in his Mueller Report on Russia collusion. Mueller had allowed Epstein to roam free as well ten years earlier because Epstein was supposedly a reliable FBI informant, as well.
A top United Auto Workers (UAW) official retained his position as a Democrat Superdelegate despite his conviction on bribery and corruption charges. The home of UAW president was raided by the FBI and IRS as part of a nationwide corruption probe. Top union officials reportedly used millions of dollars intended for worker training to perks for officials. Nine people were charged in the alleged scheme. The UAW gave more than $4 million to Democracts in the 2018 election cycle alone.
The Democrats' 2020 presidential candidates increasingly advocated for "some of the most radical socialist ideas in U.S. history." Joe Biden's treatment of the founding fathers, particularly Thomas Jefferson, illustrated the leftward shift in the party. Several 2020 Democrat presidential candidates called for "free" healthcare for illegals, and they sought to abolish the meaningfulness of the concept of citizenship. The Democrat Party became so far-Left on immigration that even Obama's DHS secretary, Jeh Johnson, denounced them for open borders advocacy. The Democratic Party continued lurching leftward on immigration.
As a sign of the times of a society in breakdown, a Democrat office holder was sworn in using a Dr. Seuss book. Fake news engineer and Intelligence Committee leaker, chairman Adam Schiff faces a primary challenge from an oxymoronic "drag queen transgender." Despite all the Democrats' bluster of looking out for the little guy, their priority in the 116th Congress was a payraise for themselves.
In August 2019, the DNC unanimously passed a resolution effectively endorsing non-religious voters while demeaning religious people.
The Mueller report found no wrongdoing by President Trump and left unanswered questions about the DNC, Obama administration, the Clinton campaign and the conduct of the Mueller investigation itself. Of the eight cases or incidents of alleged Trump Campaign interaction with the Russians investigated by the Mueller team, the proposals to interact with the Russian Government or with Vladimir Putin originated with Obama FBI informants, MI-6 assets or people paid by the Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and not Trump or his people.
Democrats dusted off the threat of inherent contempt - arrest of Executive Branch officials - to try to force the release of the classified sections of the Mueller report and President Trump's business and personal tax returns. The Supreme Court has ruled congress's arrest powers are only legal if they serve a legitimate legislative function. Democrats insisted on using the 116th Congress to continue harassment and witchhunts into President Trump rather than accept the verdict of the American people in the 2016 election and clearing President Trump of any wrongdoing by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Disgraced FBI director James Comey was fired for publicly discussing the details of an investigation into Hillary Clinton; Attorney General William Barr notified congress of the findings of Mueller - that no basis was found for prosecution of President Trump, as required by law. Although making the Mueller report public could be done at the Attorney General's discretion, Barr stated in confirmation hearings that he would be inclined to make most portions available. Certain portions were redacted, as required by law. Congressional Democrats then demanded Attorney General Barr violate statute law and make the full unredacted record of the Mueller investigation public, and threatened contempt citations if Barr failed to do so, at which point the Justice Department withdrew the redacted version of the Mueller report from Congress.
The Democrats feared the ongoing investigation into high-level Obama administration spying, corruption, and interference in the 2016 president election and American democracy, and with their discredited liberal fake news media allies, channeled their hatred of President Trump into demonizing Attorney General Barr for Mueller's failure to produce the desired outcome of ridding Trump.
In January 2020 the FISA Court and Department of Justice ruled that the basis of the Mueller investigation - the Steele dossier, the Carter Page FISA warrant, and the Obama FBI's Crossfire Hurricane investigation - were invalid.

Ukrainian prosecutors were attempting to get evidence into the hands of U.S. officials, but were being thwarted by the DOJ officials in the Southern District of New York. The State Department requested Rudy Giuliani to act as an emissary, and U.S. Special Representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker thanked Giuliani for his assistance.
Democrats were willing to use their presidential frontrunner Joe Biden, who supposedly was beating the President by 10 points in national polls, as a sacrificial lamb in order to impeach President Trump. For the first time in history, a trial of a sitting president would be in the Senate controlled by the president's own party. The trial would be transformed into a trial not of President Trump, but of former Vice President Joe Biden and the malignant corruption of Democrats in Washington.
82% of voters said they were closely following news reports about Trump's and Biden's dealings with Ukrainian officials, with 55% who have been following Very Closely. The Trump Campaign and RNC was flooded with $13 Million in the days immediately following Speaker Pelosi's announcement of the 2019 impeachment inquiry. Sen. Doug Jones criticized his party for pursuing impeachment based on hearsay. Sens. Joe Manchin and Jon Tester specifically expressed concerns that the impeachment inquiry witchhunt would have devastating blowback in the Democrats hope to re-take the Senate. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, noted for his comment, "America was never that great to begin with," blasted the impeachment push. CNN contributor Van Jones called impeachment "a lose-lose situation" for Democrats. Prof. Jonathan Turley blasted the fake news media demonization of Attorney General William Barr. Bill Mahar was critical of the way Democrats and the news media handled the Ukrainian collusion scandal.
The first open display by the party as a whole of utter contempt for constitutional and due process rights came on October 21, 2019 when it defeated a censure resolution of Rep. Adam Schiff, who was conducting a closed door witchhunt, dubbed an "impeachment inquiry" by Speaker Pelosi to draft Articles of Impeachment, that barred Republicans, the media, the public, the president's attorney's, the right of cross examination, or the right to confront one's accusers. The entire process was begun by anonymous accusers who admittedly based their accusations on hearsay evidence.
No due process
- See also: Deep State coup 2.0
The Democrats 2019 impeachment probe was an attack on the fundamental due process rights of the constitution guaranteed to all Americans. House Democrats rewrote House Rules to illegally exclude Republicans from the process. A poll of registered voters on the eve of Nancy Pelosi's unilateral declared "impeachment inquiry" without a vote from Congress found 46% think it's more likely that Trump will be reelected in 2020 than defeated by the Democratic nominee or impeached. 28% see a win by the Democrats’ candidate as more likely, down from 33% two months earlier. 17% believe Trump is likely to be impeached before serving his full term in office, down from a high of 29% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in late December 2017. Despite Democrats and fake news media's best efforts at another manufactured scandal Trump poll ratings remained strong.
One day after the House voted along party lines to pass a supposed 'impeachment inquiry resolution', President Trump held a rally in Tupelo, Mississippi. At the rally, of the 16,432 voters who provided data, 27% were Democrats. 20% of those reporting were black in a state where the black population is approximately 37%. At an earlier Dallas rally where 53,985 voters had attended, 21.4% were Democrats. 11% were Hispanic. In the United States, Hispanics are 18% the population. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy claimed stated,
"I had a Democrat come to me today to tell me — he even questioned if he should stay a Democrat or re-register. He said, 'This is not the party I know.'"
The partisan impeachment articles were based on a temporary delay in foreign aid to Ukraine due to corruption. The Biden family had received a $3 million quid pro quo kickback of the $1 billion that Vice President Joe Biden was entrusted with doling out to Ukraine. The impeachment managers who drafted the articles, Jerrold Nadler, Hakeem Jeffries, and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) all previously voted against aid to Ukraine yet argued withholding aid was a threat to U.S. national security. In fulfilling his oath of office President Trump delayed allotted aid while officials vetted the new Ukrainian administration. Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler alleged that Joe Biden was a "political rival" of President Trump for the 2020 presidential election. Biden was defeated soundly by Democrat voters in primary caucuses while the impeachment scam was tried in the U.S. Senate.
The partisan Articles of Impeachment alleged that rooting out corruption and what is good for America is an abuse of power, and secondly, that Congress has a right to deny due process rights, the right to counsel, the right of cross examination, and the right to confront one's accuser - an alleged hearsay whistleblower named Eric Ciaramella who worked for a political rival of the President and colluded with impeachment managers' staff before filing a whistleblower complaint beginning the House's abuse of the Constitutional process of impeachment. No crime was alleged by Democrats, yet the President defending himself against baseless smears was considered a high crime or misdemeanor. In an open trial, testimony from 17 witnesses were presented. The U.S. Senate resoundingly rejected the House Democrats tainted evidence.
In the course of the trial, presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren impugned the integrity of the presiding officer, Chief Justice John Roberts, House Manager Jerry Nadler insulted the Senators sitting as jurors accusing them of treachery and a cover up, among several other improprieties committed by the House presenters.
Upon President Trump's acquittal in the partisan witchhunt, Democrat leaders and their MSM allies become sarcastic and insulting toward the U.S. Senate. the Constitution and its processes, and the American people.
Background checks on illegal immigrants who attempt to purchase a gun
On February 27, 2019 House Republicans offered a ‘motion to recommit‘ to legislation that would increase federal background checks on gun purchases, adding an amendment requiring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if an illegal alien attempted to purchase a firearm. 26 moderate Democrats voted in favor of the amendment.
In response Pelosi announced she would change the House Rules removing the ‘motion to recommit’ process that allows the voice of the minority to be heard.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy commented, “Rather than reconcile the differences within their party that are driving this division, Democrats want to rig the rules and suppress the minority party’s speech on the House floor."
2020 State of the Union address
Following the 2020 State of the Union address delivered by President Trump on February 4, 2020, in a moment captured on live television, Pelosi tore up her copy of the address right behind Trump's back in a gesture widely condemned as childish and utterly classless, as the address contained the names of deceased American citizens who had been memorialized by Trump during the address, along with honoring a 100 year old Black Tuskegee Airman and other positive accomplishments made during the Trump administration. In addition to being condemned, Pelosi's gesture, along with those of other Democrats present at the address, was also taken as a gesture of how much contempt and hatred the Democrat Party and its supporters truly have for the American public. Ironically, several Democrat voters also condemned Pelosi for this action, with many of them even calling C-SPAN immediately afterwards and citing how they will never vote for the Democrat Party ever again thanks largely to her actions as well as the other Democrat Representatives during and after the speech.
Pelosi, who later found out that destruction of federal documents (including the State of the Union address) is a federal crime that can lead to prosecution of those caught doing so, subsequently demanded that Twitter and Facebook take down the video showing her ripping up the address, while her spokesman Drew Hamill delusionally claimed that the video was a "fake", even though the video clearly shows Pelosi tearing up the speech. Many called for Pelosi's resignation and ethics complaints were filed against her. The Constitution requires the President to deliver an annual State of the Union report to Congress. It does not require giving a speech. America witnessed the President hand deliver the annual report and Pelosi destroying the Constitutionally mandated report. The document is not Pelosi's personal property to destroy.
Green New Deal
The junk science behind the Green New Deal was embraced by virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. For example, that Medicare for All, a guaranteed income and minimum wage increase, unionization, killing all cows and destroying the airline and automotive industries would save the planet from final destruction before the year 2030.
Ocasio-Cortez was not named by Speaker Pelosi to her brain child, the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis which was negotiated in exchange for Ocasio-Cortez not voting against Pelosi for Speaker. The new committee is responsible for creating a plan with draft legislation by January 1, 2020. Its scope and mandate makes clear its vision:
|"The select committee shall have authority to develop a detailed national, industrial, economic mobilization plan for the transition of the United States economy to become greenhouse gas emissions neutral and to significantly draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and oceans and to promote economic and environmental justice and equality."|
The Green New Deal advances non-environmental projects, such as,
Ocasio-Cortez's claims it will eliminate poverty:
|"The Plan for a Green New Deal (and the draft legislation) shall recognize that a national, industrial, economic mobilization of this scope and scale is a historic opportunity to virtually eliminate poverty in the United States and to make prosperity, wealth and economic security available to everyone participating in the transformation."|
The Green New Deal was introduced as H.Res.109 on February 7, 2019, by Ocasio-Cortez, leading many to believe she is really a Republican plant seeking to discredit the progressive movement. The bill says nothing about wildfire management and National Parks maintenance.
Separately, Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that an effective climate plan would have to cost at least $10 trillion.
|“||Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.||”|
Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez's proposals for free healthcare, tuition, and housing is estimated to cost more than half of World GDP. This is fundamentally a racist argument - that Americans by birth have the right to the fruits of other people's labor.Economist Thomas Sowell, in response to Ocasio-Cortez, said:
"The only way anyone can have a right to something that has to be produced, is to force someone else to produce it for him. The more things are provided as rights, the less the recipients have to work and the more others have to carry their [the recipients] load." To fulfill any of Ocasio-Cortez's ideas, America would have to enslave the rest of the planet and force them to pay for Americans' free healthcare, tuition, and housing with the labor of non-Americans outside the United States. Given all existing facts and circumstances, that is the only way the "richest country in the world" could afford to provide free healthcare, tuition, and housing for all Americans.
Medicare for All
To meet the estimated costs of Medicare for All, U.S. carbon emissions would have to be increased five-fold over the next ten years to avoid rationing.
Many union workers pay little or no premiums for their health insurance. Medicare for all will take away their private coverage and jack up their taxes.Medicare for All originated as item 6 in the far left Occupy Wall Street list of demands. It reads:
"Medicare for all American citizens or another single-payer healthcare system, adjusted by a means test (i.e. citizens who can afford it may opt-out and pay their own health insurance or opt-in and pay a means tested premium). The Medicaid program, fraught with corruption and fraud, will be eliminated except for the purpose of providing emergency room care to indigent non-citizens who will not be covered by the single-payer program."
Gross Domestic Product is the aggregate sum total of every individual and business's Gross income, which in 2019 amounted to $19 Trillion; Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's proposal for Medicare for All is estimated to cost $32 Trillion.
Obamacare was designed to fail with the hope that after it crashed and burned, Americans would willingly accept Socialism.
The Congressional Budget Office was widely off in its projections that 22 million Americans would lose their health insurance if the individual mandate were repealed. Only 2.5 million more people are expected to go without insurance in 2019 due to its repeal, according to the latest report, and that number is expected to decline in the years ahead.
The bill essentially illegally nullifies federal and state religious freedom protections by handing authority to the U.S. Department of Justice to interpret and investigate claims of discrimination. For example, the bill cites “conversion therapy” as a form of “discrimination”. The bill prohibits the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 from providing a claim, defense, or basis for challenging such protections.
The bill would create a "protected" class for those who identify as homosexual based on their belief in their sexual identity alone, while providing the federal government the power to punish legitimate criticism and disbelief among skeptics and religious dissenters.
The bill codifies progressive beliefs into absolute legal standards. The language is already obsolete, as it limits “sexual orientation” identity to heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual. The LGBT designation currently includes dozens of sexual identities and orientations.
Thomas F. Farr of "Real Clear Religion warns,
Supporters of the Equality Act claim it will increase equality in America, but it will actually harm one of the most fundamental rights we all share as Americans – religious freedom. It purports to ban discrimination, but it actually bans disagreement...The Act..would add sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) to classes protected under the Civil Rights Act, such as race and sex...Race is an immutable characteristic unconnected to distinctive behaviors or expressions. By contrast, behaviors and expressions are part of SOGI identities...Can the rejection of SOGI behaviors and expressions be tolerated in America? The law would devastate institutions built on those convictions, such as schools, charities, small businesses, hospitals, and houses of worship. The Act will expose persons or groups holding these beliefs to lawsuits and financial ruin. The law will mark them – like racists – as “hateful” and “bigoted.”..A sampling of likely harms foreshadows an America of increasing government coercion, some of which is already happening. Schools with traditional policies on sex and marriage will lose their tax exemptions and be forced to change or close. Adoption agencies seeking to place children with married mothers and fathers will be forced to shut down. Females will have to compete in sports and share locker rooms with biological males. Small businesses that cannot in good conscience participate in same-sex weddings will be driven out of business."
Justification for the The Act is significantly based upon a number of non-referenced specious claims, including allegations of discrimination in they are actually favored over a conservative and to fulfill PC quotas, or in which the cause may only be not established but is simply alleged (how many housing applicants are told the real reason for denial), or that of alleged effects of discrimination which can be explained as having a different cause (such the disorder that is behind their gender confusion and suicidal tendencies), or in which there is sound medical or moral reasons for discrimination and in which the solution itself would foster discrimination.
The DNC partners with two organizations, Act Blue and Action Network, who are allied with one another. Together these platforms allow progressive groups, including antifa, to raise money and organize protests electronically. It gives progressive activist groups the ability to privately and quickly communicate with members of their mailing lists. There is even a degree of list-sharing between the groups. From Action Network's announcement of the DNC partnership:
|We had hoped to announce our partnership with the DNC under much different circumstances, but now, facing an unprecedented crisis that has forced us all to move our organizing from in-person to digital, our partnership to build robust, safe, and trusted technology for the movement is more important than ever.
As COVID-19 affects our collective communities and changes the world around us by the hour, we are working to be as responsive as possible to the needs of you, our partners, and your communities. For months now, in partnership with the DNC and through our non-profit, cooperative development model, we’ve been doubling down on our efforts to make sure the Action Network toolset can be there every moment to get your communications in people’s inboxes quickly and effectively.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered portraits of four Democrat Speakers removed to whitewash more of the party's racist history. In what can only be regarded as a disrespectful joke, neither Pelosi nor Schumer even knew who George Floyd was in their attempts to honor his name. Democrat lawmakers led Pelosi faced overwhelming backlash after wearing Kente cloth during their nearly nine-minute moment of silence in a photo-op staged to show their alleged sympathy for black victims of police brutality. Some fiddled with iPhones while allegedly mourning Floyd. Many users across social media questioned their motives and blasted them for missing the mark.
Author Obianuju Ekeocha posted a video telling Democrats to stop "virtue signalling" by wearing African cloth.
|"In your tokenism, you didn't wait to find out that this thing that you're hanging around your neck is not just some African uniform -- it's actually the kente material. The kente belongs to the Ghanaian people, mainly the Ashanti tribe."|
Kente reflects the history of the Ashanti people, from the emergence of the various Ashanti kingdoms to the development of the slave trade up to and including contemporary life in Ghana. Slavery was historically a tradition with the Ashanti, slaves typically taken as captives from enemies in warfare. The welfare of their slaves varied from being able to acquire wealth and intermarry with the master's family to being a human sacrifice in funeral ceremonies.
By the early 1800s the Ashanti had become a major exporter of enslaved people. The slave trade was originally focused north with captives going to Mande and Hausa traders who exchanged them for goods from North Africa and indirectly from Europe. By 1800, the trade had shifted to the south as the Ashanti sought to meet the growing demand of the British, Dutch, and French for captives. In exchange, the Ashanti received luxury items and some manufactured goods including most importantly firearms. The consequence of this trade for the Ashanti and their neighbors was horrendous. From 1790 until 1896, the Ashanti were in a perpetual state of war involving expansion or defense of its domain. Most of these wars afforded the opportunity to acquire more slaves for trade.
The modern-day Ashanti claim that slaves were seldom abused, and defend the "humanity" of Ashanti slavery by noting that those slaves were allowed to marry, and that their children were born free. USA Today fact checkers rated the claim as True that Democrats wore the garb of slave traders.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters beat, kicked in the head, neck, and ribs, and left with a possible concussion Wisconsin state senator Tom Carpenter, a progressive Democrat who is gay. Carpenter was video recording BLM's protesters destruction of a statue of Col. Chrisitan Heg, an abolitionist and Union officer who was killed in the Battle of Chickamauga. Carpenter tried to tell the rioters, "I'm on your side.". Not a single prominent Democrat at the federal, state, or local level, four weeks into the nationwide riots, condemned the leftist violence and attacks on innocent people, including their own.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered portraits of four Democrat Speakers removed to whitewash more of the party's racist history.
Defund the Police
Raheem Kassam and Gatewaypundit exposed Black Lives Matter as a money laundering scheme for the Democratic National Committee. On the BLM homepage, which features a “Defund The Police” petition front and center, if a user chooses to donate, they're rerouted to a site hosted by ActBlue, the DNC's official payment portal. ActBlue claims to be tax exempt organization and all donations to it are tax-deductible. The terms and conditions also link to ActBlue and mention “Campaign Finance Laws”. Joe Biden is a top beneficiary of the ActBlue's fundraising efforts.
ActBlue contributions comprise 99.64 percent of all funds raised for the “Biden for President” entity and the total is nearly 773 times greater than the group with the second-highest donation sum. As of May 21, 2020, the organization has donated $119,253,857 to the “Biden for President” effort.
Days after New York mayor Bill De Blasio cut $1 billion and 6,000 officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) a one year old baby was murdered in the Leftist violence perpetrated by the DNC's Black Lives Matter fundraising operation.
Pelosi to voters: Drop Dead
In response to the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic, a bipartisan group of United States Senators had fashioned an emergency relief spending bill as the U.S. economy nose-dived with layoffs, shutdowns, and state-wide lockdowns to prevent spread of the deadly disease. Pelosi nixed the entire emergency stimulus package which would have given families on lockdown at home emergency cash assistance and allocated immediate funding for doctors, hospitals, and medical staff to fight the deadly virus which was claiming over 100 lives daily. Pelosi demanded elements of the Green New Deal be included, such as airline carbon emission restrictions, tax credits for windmills and solar panels, and a plethora of other social justice warrior schemes targeted at destroying American capitalism.
With a record 2 million people having lost their jobs in one single week due to business closures and stay at home orders and a national emergency, Democrats voted down the CARES Act intended to stop the American economy from collapsing completely. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warned unemployment could hit 20% if Congress did not pass the legislation immediately. Democrats demanded: $35 million for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; Tax credits for solar and wind energy; Tougher airlines’ emissions standards; Special treatment for corrupt unions; Elimination of U.S. Postal Service debt: Same-day voter registration; Early voting; Federal $15 minimum wage; Permanent paid leave, Retirement plans for community newspaper employees; Student loan forgiveness; Restart of halted asylum process; Rewrite of nation's food stamp program; Obamacare expansion; Visa/work authorization extension; Abortion funding among other things in their 1,400 page counterproposal. Left-wing Senate Democrats repeated their tactics on September 10, 2020, blocking a GOP coronavirus relief proposal; fortunately for them, the MSM sided against the Republicans as part of a fake news effort to unfairly influence the 2020 elections.
A Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) official leading a new multimillion-dollar outreach to connect with “people of color and younger Americans” had thousands of homophobic and racially insensitive postings on Twitter. The first person to lose their job after anti-homosexual social media posts sent was its executive director, a white female lesbian combat veteran, however the staffer, an African American, who sent the anti-homosexual tweets remained employed. Two members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Vicente Gonzalez (D., Texas) and Filemon Vela (D., Texas) demanded a "person of color" be made executive director. The two made the demand after learning that Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.) had lied to them about removing the staffer who sent the anti-homosexual tweets from a top Minority Outreach post. The DCCC did however, out of racist motivation, force six of their top staff to resign because they were white. Gonzalez and Vela complained of a "lack of diversity," and the six senior executives were fired because of their skin color in what was dubbed the "Monday Night Massacre." Justice Democrats, The political action committee that facilitated the rise of "the Squad" launched a set of Facebook ads fundraising off the diversity fiasco. Cenk Uygur of the The Young Turks also condemned the racism of the DCCC.
The new executive director of the DCCC who replaced the white lesbian female combat veteran, a former executive at pro-abortion fundraising giant EMILY's List, tweeted in agreement that "we shouldn't let boys run for office anymore. The idea was initially raised by liberal think tank Third Way's senior vice president, Lanae Erickson, who asked, "Anyone else having the feeling that maybe we shouldn't let boys run for office anymore?" Reps. Tony Cardenas (D., Calif.) and Scott Peters (D., Calif.) who supported the new executive directors hiring remained silent on the proposed ban of male candidates. The DCCC is charged with candidate recruitment and funding.
California's Democrat governor Gavin Newsom and its state legislature illegally enacted voter suppression legislation aimed at denying citizens the right to vote for the candidate of their choice. The legislation unconstitutionally demanded President Trump release private information, defined by law, to the State of California. The authoritarian legislation violates the basic civil, constitutional, and human rights of 4.5 million opposition party voters who wish to vote for the nominee of their party and denies them participation in the political process.
In February 2019, Virginia governor Ralph Northam admitted to being one of two people in a photo, one wearing blackface and another dressed in the traditional Democrat garb of the Ku Klux Klan. Racist Democrats then tried to prevent Northam's resignation by exploiting multiple sexual assault allegations against the African American Lt. Governor. Then, the Attorney General who would be third in line of succession revealed that he, too, had also appeared in blackface at a college party in the 1980s. Northam ultimately bought off some of his Democrat critics who called for his resignation with donations to their campaigns from his Political Action Committee. A Democrat member of the Maryland state house refused to resign after complaining about having to knock on doors in a "n*gg*r district" during a campaign.
While attending the international G20 conference, President Trump was questioned about the epidemic of human feces on the streets of Democrat-controlled cities.
Nation of Islam

The Democrat Party has been accused of enabling anti-Semitism. Women's March co-founders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour have been criticized for their outspoken support of anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Mallory attended a Nation of Islam event hosted by Farrakhan, during which he referred to the "Satanic Jew" and declared that "the powerful Jews are my enemy".
Noted speakers and participants at various Women's March events included Presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Barbara Lee and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Two directors of the U.S.-based Jewish NGO the Anti-Defamation League, along with the president of the Zionist Organization of America, have criticized Sarsour's stance on Israel. Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL's director, has said that Sarsour's support of BDS "encourages and spreads anti-Semitism". Sarsour has refused to condemn Farrakhan's extremely anti-Semitic rhetoric. Sarsour has called for Muslims to carry out jihad against President Trump and has praised Imam Siraj Wahhaj, named in court documents as an alleged “co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Awad is co-founder and Executive Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) which has direct ties to the Hamas terror organization.

A CBS Battleground Tracker Poll found that the moderate to conservative wing of the Democrat party consists mostly of blacks, Hispanics and other minorities, whereas the far left progressive wing is disproportionately white. Thomas Edsall wrining tin the New York Times noted, “What the data demonstrates is that the group containing the largest proportion of minority voters is the most skeptical of some of the most progressive policies embraced by Democratic candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris.”
Segregationist and racist former VP Joe Biden became the party's Great White Hope upon making his announcement for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Biden's age and being out of touch apparently were discounted by voters. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, "the original Rachel Dolezal" who masqueraded as a Native American to exploit affirmative action for her own benefit that she was not entitled to causing truly needy minorities to loose opportunities, moved into second place. Warren has struggled to name three black Americans who have influential to her. Sen. Bernie Sanders who ran on a platform of reviving the Soviet slave system in the United States was an early contender. The gay married Mayor Pete Buttigieg who enjoyed much admiration from fake news media faltered on racial problems in his hometown. Beto O'Rourke, a cross dressing darling of the mainstream media whose only claim to fame was loosing an election, despite $70 million from Hollywood donors found a muted response from the American people. The wreckage of at least two dozen other also rans littered the landscape.
President Obama's former vice president, Joseph Biden initiated a debate over his role in repealing sections of the 1964 Civil Rights Act which required the Department of Health and Human Services (formerly the Department of Health, Education and Welfare) to cut off funds for schools that refused to comply with the Supreme Court's ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education to end segregation in schools. Biden authored an Amendment in 1975, supported by Democrat segregationists and supporters of Alabama Governor George Wallace to restore funding for white schools that refused to integrate with Blacks. Sen. Kamala Harris confronted Biden in the First Debate, saying "that little girl was me" who received an opportunity to attend a better a school, which Biden had denied to millions of other Blacks.
Democrats falsely claimed Trump was sending out coded messages of "racism" and "white supremacy" and demanded a boycott of businesses owned by Trump donor Stephen Ross, whose assets include the Miami Dolphins, luxury spa Equinox, SoulCycle, and Hudson Yards whose tenants include CNN and HBO. Ross has donated to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) $15,700, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) $4,000, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (Da-Nang DicK, D., Conn.) $2,500, Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) $2,500, Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.) $4,600, Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.) $2,700, Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) $14,400, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee $112,500, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) $10,000, and the New Jersey Democratic State Committee $20,000.
A YouGov poll exposed the rampant racism and bigotry of the Democrat Party: 30% of Democrats believe a white candidate is more electable than 8% who think not; 34% of Democrats believe a male candidate is more electable than 5% who think not; only 12% of Democrats prefer a nonwhite candidate while 29% thought voters would be less supportive; and only 17% prefer a female candidate over 30% who answered that a woman would be less electable. Shortly before the Iowa caucuses' polls showed improvement in race relations at its highest level since the Obama-era War on Cops.
At the 2019 DNC Summer Meeting in San Francisco where all candidates spoke (except Tulsi Gabbard, who was on active National Guard duty), Kamala Harris supporters began chanting and disrupted Bernie Sanders as he started to speak. Mainstream fake news media tried to deny it happened.
Several 2020 Democrat presidential candidates campaigned in Mexico. Democrats also adopted far-Left positions in an attempt to avoid having to acknowledge President Trump's strong economic success. When Rep. Tulsi Gabbard delivered a knockout punch to Kamala Harris in the Democrat debates citing Harris' record as California Attorney General, Harris' campaign responded by alleging that stating facts about her record was a "Russian plot." McCarthyism and anti-Russian xenophobia is now the character of Democrat identity. Harris blamed racist and sexist Democrats for her failing campaign.
The Democrat presidential candidates frequently used profane language as a campaign strategy. Democratic voters freaked out on primary election day after they were informed they cast a vote for a gay man, Pete Buttigieg, who is gay married and asked for their ballots back.
After Cory Booker and Julian Castro were driven out of the contest, racist insiders changed the debate rules to accommodate a rich white man, Michael Bloomberg in an effort to defeat Bernie Sanders.
Although Democrats argued that former VP Joe Biden was above the law because he announced a campaign for the Democrat presidential nomination, Democrat voters decided Biden was not a "political rival" of President Trump, making the House Articles of Impeachment moot when the Senate voted to acquit the President.
Due to Democrat corruption and election rigging, the Associated Press refused to declare an Iowa Caucus winner. Democrats called upon party chairman Tom Perez to resign after rigged results.
An open letter published by The Democracy Institute entitled Reasons Why The 2020 Presidential Election Is Deeply Puzzling begins by noting the fact:
|“Something very strange happened in America’s democracy in the early hours of Wednesday November 4  and the days that followed...Trump earned the highest share of all minority votes for a Republican since 1960…Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016…Nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose...We are told that Biden won more votes nationally than any presidential candidate in history...But he won a record low of 17 percent of counties; he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties Obama won in 2008...Yet, Biden somehow outdid Obama in total votes...Victorious presidential candidates, especially challengers, usually have down-ballot coattails; Biden did not...The Republicans held the Senate and enjoyed a ‘red wave’ in the House, where they gained a large number of seats while winning all 27 toss-up contests...Trump’s party did not lose a single state legislature and actually made gains at the state level”.|

- Socialist technocrats imposed quotas. The "quotas were not based on the harvest, and non-fulfillment resulted in fines, expropriation, imprisonment, and deportation. The 1933 decree guaranteed that collective farmers had the right to freely dispose of all grain left over after the collective farms had fulfilled their obligations to the state and had made full provision for seed, reserve, and feed funds. The quantity of grain taken by the state was so great, however, that in most cases, after fulfilling their deliveries and stocking their funds, the collective farms had no surplus."
