Cynthia Nixon: Hey, you guys! I’m a socialist too, ya know!

Published

on

I don’t know if former Sex & the City star Cynthia Nixon has convinced many people to vote for her but the media still loves to cover her campaign. As the summer wears on and the days until the primary election dwindle, Nixon seems to have grown increasingly desperate. She’s doing anything and everything possible to attract some headlines and chip away at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s lead and the recent surge in Democratic enthusiasm for socialism apparently hasn’t escaped her attention. In a recent interview, she informed the public that she too was jumping on the Democratic Socialist bandwagon. (Politico)

Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon considers herself a democratic socialist, she told POLITICO on Tuesday.

Nixon, an actor best known for her role in “Sex and the City,” is running a left-flank challenge to Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary this September. She has promised to raise taxes on the rich to increase funding for public schools and mass transit, and she supports a single-payer health care system.

Nixon spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said that the campaign has been in touch with members of the Democratic Socialists of America, which backed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as well as Julia Salazar, a state Senate candidate in Brooklyn who has cross-endorsed Nixon. In an email passed along by Hitt, Nixon told POLITICO that she sees herself in their vein.

“Some more establishment, corporate Democrats get very scared by this term but if being a democratic socialist means that you believe health care, housing, education and the things we need to thrive should be a basic right not a privilege then count me in,” Nixon wrote.

Count me in!”

Okay, Ms. Nixon. We’ll be sure to do that. Mark her down for being a supporter of the theory of government which has led to the current utopia being enjoyed by the happy citizens of Venezuela. Just think… elect Cynthia Nixon and you too could soon be eating your pets and embarking on exciting safaris to the zoo so you can shoot down the captive animals there for a meal. And who needs toilet paper? It’s a useless symbol of the bourgeoisie. Also, basic medical care, vaccinations and essential medicines have now reached a level of true equality in Venezuela for 90% of the population. Of course, that level is… zero.

Is this the selling point which finally puts Nixon on the map and sets her up for a successful primary run? Who are we kidding? As near as I can tell, no major polling groups are still even interested in the race. The last poll done by a recognized organization was more than a month ago and Cuomo was leading by 35 points statewide. In her home turf of New York City, she’s losing by almost sixty. She’s not even capturing a significant amount of the women’s vote.

If claiming to be a socialist doesn’t do the trick I’m not sure what other options Nixon has in her arsenal. She already tried declaring ICE to be a terrorist organization. I get that she’ trying to go after Cuomo from his left flank, but if she tries to get any further left at this point she’ll need to fly to South America and marry one of Chavez’s daughters or something. (Of course, that might be risky because in many socialist outposts you can still be killed for being gay.)

Nixon might want to keep in mind one fact of American electoral life which many of her Democratic colleagues are forgetting. There are pockets of liberal enthusiasm where this might work, but nationally it’s a non-starter. Back during the run-up to the 2016 election Pew asked Americans about eleven different categories of candidates and if they would be willing to support them as president. Those categories included different races, religions, sexual orientation, gender… you name it. A majority of Americans were willing to give a look to all of them but one. Socialists.

Just some food for thought.

Obama’s Former Director of National Intelligence Says Obama Behind Entire Russia Witch Hunt!

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump!

James Clapper was on CNN yesterday and he stated that Obama was behind spying on President Trump and all the corrupt and criminal actions involving the government, including the Mueller investigation –

According to Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, who appeared on CNN to say it was Obama who set the entire Russia witch-hunt into motion by tasking the intelligence community assessment.

Clapper said –

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.  President Obama is responsible for that.  It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

The cat is out of the bag.

Sunday morning talking heads

Published

on

By

It’s a special day on the Sunday shows when socialism’s new superstar drops by to show off her intellectual chops.

She’ll be on “Face the Nation” along with her idol, Bernie Sanders, as they campaign together in Kansas for a progressive Democrat running for Mike Pompeo’s old House seat. Why they’re wasting their time there, I have no idea: It’s a R+15 district. Presumably the idea is to draw big crowds so that other socialist candidates across the country can point to it and say, “See? Even in the heartland they want hard-leftism.”

Otherwise it’s likely to be wall-to-wall chatter about Trump and Putin today. Adam Schiff will be the lead guest on “This Week,” where he’ll say Adam-Schiff-type things about collusion and kompromat. The top-billed Republican, meanwhile, is Marco Rubio, who took some heat this week after claiming that he was satisfied with POTUS’s “I said ‘would’ when I meant to say ‘wouldn’t’” walkback of the Putin press conference. He’ll sit down with “Face the Nation” and “State of the Union” for some “Are you serious?” questions and will also likely be pressed on Trump’s commitment to NATO. Rubio’s a hawk of almost McCain-ian proportions, but unlike McCain he has a long career ahead of him potentially and therefore needs to stay on Trump’s good side. He’ll do his best this morning to be diplomatic with his criticism of the president’s NATO skepticism.

If you can stand it, John Kerry will also be on “Face the Nation” to condemn Trump for not showing as much strength towards an enemy as Kerry himself did with, er, Iran. The full line-up is at the AP.

DEVELOPING: DOJ Releasing Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page

Published

on

By

On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trump’s former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI — and were on the way to JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

“Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State used while conspiring with the Clinton campaign to target then-candidate and now President Trump. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.


Tom Fitton updated and said the docs were Fed Ex’ed.

Fitton appeared on Fox News early Saturday morning to discuss the new development.

Tom Fitton expects the documents to have redactions, however he said on Fox News, “I suspect we’ll get more answers. We won’t get all the answers we want, so the fight will continue.”

VIDEO:

The new FISA warrant documents have not been released at the time of this publication, however; The Gateway Pundit will update as soon as the documents are available.

Update: Tom Fitton says he expects to receive the corrupt FISA docs by Monday.
