• Dem Convention Confusion: Biden Praised by Socialist and ‘RINO’ Turncoat

    Surge Summary: So, will a “President” Joe Biden operate as a Marxist-fueled radical or more in the style of “moderate” Democrats of yore? Democratic convention speaker Sen. Bernie Sanders puts his money on the former possibility. Fellow-speechmaker Republican (!) squish John Kasich on the latter. It’s likely Sanders is more on-point in this particular debate: The Democratic Party platform is as out-there as any in modern memory, Biden’s recent swerves to the Left and his late selection of hard-core progressive Kamala Harris as vice-presidential partner indicate forcefully he has no intention of leading as any kind of centrist.

    There was a stark contrast during the first night of the Democrat National Convention. Democrats were simultaneously trying to appeal to some disaffected Republicans while spotlighting socialist Bernie Sanders.

    Sanders honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has heaped praise on communist Cuba.  Sanders wrote much of Biden’s platform.  And he was triumphant about it [Monday] night, bragging that his radical ideas are now mainstream within Biden’s Democrat Party.

    Indeed, [Tuesday]’s Wall Street Journal editorial warns:

    “The 110-page Biden-Sanders manifesto is the most radical policy document of either major party in our lifetimes. It leaps to the left of the Obama Administration on nearly every policy area, from education to taxes to climate change.”

    Then there was John Kasich, the former Republican congressman and governor from Ohio.  He must think we’re idiots.  Kasich attempted to assure us that Joe wouldn’t be a radical left president.  (I guess he must be comfortable with a possible President Harris too.)Being a virtual convention, there was no chance for Kasich and Sanders to meet behind the scenes.  That would have been an interesting conversation because one of them is seriously wrong.

    Sanders is convinced Biden will be the most left-wing president ever.  Kasich seems to think Biden will be another Harry Truman or Bill Clinton.

    When a president is elected, you elect more than just one person.  You elect his vice president and all the people who will come into powerful positions in Washington, D.C., as well as the judges they will nominate.
    Kasich, who claims to be pro-life, just endorsed the most pro-abortion ticket in history.

    Kasich, who presents himself as a blue-collar hero, is backing the globalists who helped to gut Ohio of its manufacturing jobs, shipping our factories to China.

    Kasich, who touts his Christian faith, is backing the candidate who supported efforts to bankrupt the Little Sisters of the Poor and whose running mate (Kamala Harris) has repeatedly attacked the Knights of Columbus.

    Between Bernie Sanders’s abhorrent left-wing socialism and turncoat John Kasich’s bed-wetting brand of conservatism, I respect Sanders more.

    Kasich is a sad reminder of the weak Republican Party that drove so many conservatives to rally around Donald Trump because they were sick and tired of being betrayed.  If the GOP is to have a future, people like Kasich must be left in the past.

    Most Chutzpah
    If they made awards for chutzpah, Governor Andrew Cuomo would win hands down.  [Monday] night, Cuomo blamed Donald Trump for the coronavirus when he presided over more Covid deaths (33,000) than the states of California, Florida and Texas combined (31,000).

    It’s the “Chinese coronavirus,” but Cuomo gives communist China a pass.  He refers to it as the “European virus” and blames Trump for it.
