Reason 5432 that everyone needs to vote these folks out.
Via Daily Caller:
Seventy percent of Democrats say “some form of socialism” would be a “good thing” for the U.S., according to a new Gallup survey.
While socialism is popular among Democratic voters, a majority of voters overall, 51%, say embracing it would be bad for the country, the Gallup survey found.
Just 25% of Democrats said some form of socialism would be “a bad thing for the country as a whole,” according to the survey, which Gallup released Monday.
Among Republicans, 84% of respondents said that embracing some form of socialism would be bad for the U.S.. A plurality of independents, 48%, said the same.
Gallup’s writeup of the survey did not note that it showed 70% of Democrats supporting some form of socialism, which was included in the full results.
Establishment Democrats, meanwhile, have attempted to distance their party from socialism ahead of the 2020 election.
Republican Google Engineer Writes Open Letter About Company’s ‘Outrage Mobs’ And ‘Witch Hunts’ To Shut Down Conservative Thought
The fascists are here.
Via Daily Caller:
A Republican Google software engineer has written an open letter describing a culture of left-wing “outrage mobs” that make use of the company’s anonymous bias reporting channels to shut down dissent.
The open letter, published Tuesday morning on Medium, was written by software engineer Mike Wacker, who was reported himself multiple times via the company’s anonymous reporting tools.
“If left unchecked,” Wacker wrote, “these outrage mobs will hunt down any conservative, any Christian, and any independent free thinker at Google who does not bow down to their agenda.”
In one case, Wacker describes a fellow Republican employee who was reported for saying nice things about the University of Toronto academic Jordan Peterson. He was given a note in writing that said, “One Googler raised a concern that you that you appeared to be promoting and defending Jordan Peterson’s comments about transgender pronouns, and this made them feel unsafe at work.”
Wacker himself was twice reported via the company’s anonymous reporting channels.
“You wrote in the [email protected] group: ‘The definition of ‘Google’s values’ that matters is the one used by Google’s activists, who could only be described as ‘nonpartisan’ in the same sense that the Women’s March could be described as inclusive towards pro-life Jewish women,’” reads a note he received in January. “Other members of the group responded that your statement was percieved [sic] as hateful/incendiary/inflammatory. [redacted].”
Just middle-class gropey Joe…
Via Free Beacon:
Former Vice President Joe Biden has pitched himself as “middle-class Joe” to voters on the campaign trail, but a recent report from the New York Times suggests his high-dollar fundraisers are anything but simple affairs.
The Tuesday morning story from the New York Times delved into the lavish details of the fundraisers Biden has held since beginning his presidential campaign last month.
Described as “lavish affairs” by the Times, the story mentioned some fundraisers have featured “a live jazz band,” while another featured “langoustine tail and caviar.”
Langoustine tail is “a rare and expensive delicacy,” according to the Browne Trading Company, one of the premier providers of fine caviar in the United States, which also describes the seafood as “a cross between a crayfish and a lobster.” Sometimes referred to as “Norway lobster,” langoustines generally “cost more than twice as much as lobster,” even though they yield less than half of the meat of a traditional lobster.
Mueller Tells Congress He Doesn’t Want To Testify In Public Because He Doesn’t Want To Appear “Political”
Sounds like Rush had it right on the nose. Mueller can’t help the Democrats and he’s afraid he’s going to get savaged if he testifies in public.
One option is to have him testify behind closed doors, but sources caution numerous options are being considered in the negotiations between the committee and the special counsel’s team. Nadler has called for public testimony https://t.co/dQq24ZtF3O

Liberals Think It’s Great Merrick Garland Might Hear The Appeal On Congress Trying To Get Trump’s Tax Records
A federal judge in D.C. declined to block a House subpoena to President Trump's accounting firm, Mazars USA, for his financial records. Today, Trump formally appealed the ruling to the D.C. Court of Appeals – where the chief judge is Merrick Garland, Obama's Supreme Court nominee https://t.co/Lwe4u7hm5J

Mazars shouldn’t comply. But the reaction of those on the left show they believe Garland should be partisan.
Donald Trump’s lawyers have now formally appealed a federal court ruling that refused to block a House subpoena of the president’s tax returns via his accounting firm, Mazars USA. The judge who will hear the appeal is Merrick Garland, who lost out on a SCOTUS seat in 2016:
Mazars may comply with the subpoena, however:
So who’s behind this?
ROME (Reuters) – Accounts tagged ‘hatetrump’ and ‘ihatetrump’ are part of a coordinated campaign to undermine U.S. President Donald Trump that has emerged on social media site Instagram, an independent study has revealed.
The photo-sharing app Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, said it was investigating the report and had already removed some of the profiles it highlighted.
Malign online attacks against Trump’s opponents have been well documented, most notably in the 2016 presidential election campaign, when Russian trolls allegedly flooded social media sites to undermine the Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.
Italian analytics firm Ghost Data says here the U.S. president is now facing similar illicit tactics, albeit on a limited scale, with false profiles being created and coordinated online attacks organized to spread a virulent anti-Trump message.

Political families beget dynasties. Take Gov. Mario Cuomo’s kid, Gov. Andrew. Add a pile of Roosevelts, wall-to-wall Kennedys, more Bushes than they have in Cypress.

Dem Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Introducing ‘Resolution of Investigation’ That Could Lead to Impeachment Proceedings
The pipe dream continues.
I think Mayor Pete is confused.
Actress Julianna Margulies (ER, The Good Wife) was on The Late Show Monday evening to promote her new television show, The Hot Zone, when liberal host Stephen Colbert sharply turned to politics. Margulies admitted that she had “gone insane” when Donald Trump was elected and started having nightmares of herself screaming at him in the Oval Office.
Colbert wanted to know if the actress, who starred in the liberal political drama The Good Wife, ever “divorced [herself] from the whole political thing.” Margulies said she couldn’t, but admitted that because of nightmare of her “screaming” at Trump, she stopped reading the news at night:
HIRONO: “I just met sixty 8th graders from a public school in Hawaii, and I told them I was coming to a rally in front of the Supreme Court. And they said, why? I said, it is because we are — we have to fight for abortion rights, and they knew all about it. And I asked a girl in that group from 8th graders, how many of you girls think that government should be telling us women when and if we want to have babies? Not a single one of them raised their hand. And then — (Cheering and Applause) — boys who were there among the sixty, I said you know, it’s kind of hard for a women to get pregnant without you guys. (Laughter) They got it. How many of you boys think that government should be telling girls and women when and if we’re going to have babies? And not a single one of them raised their hand.” (Cheering and Applause)
Elizabeth Warren nods in approval.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins at McGahn hearing: "The special counsel closed up shop without giving Democrats anything to deliver to their base. Now the Democrats are trying desperately to make something out of nothing" https://t.co/wMuigsaBGa pic.twitter.com/JYBkIEQB8w

They’re desperate to find something they can run on.
Democrats just can’t seem to let this Russia thing go.
The Mueller report clearly wasn’t the gotcha they wanted it to be so now they’re spinning their wheels trying to find a way to make something stick to Trump because they know they’ve wasted years on this hoax and if they can’t find a way to make it real they don’t have much to run on in 2020.
Rep. Doug Collins said this and much more at today’s hearing which McGahn skipped.
Can’t walk the talk.
Via Free Beacon:
A new plan from Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) to eliminate the gender pay gap would fine companies if they are unable to prove they’re paying men and women equally, something Harris isn’t currently achieving in either her official office or on her campaign, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found.
The policy proposal from Harris mandates large companies to obtain an “equal pay certification” by showing they are paying men and women equally. Companies would be fined 1 percent of their daily profits for every 1 percent of a gender pay gap that exists, unless they could prove the gap could be explained by other factors, such as experience or performance.
The California senator and presidential contender has some explaining to do.
Analysis found men were paid a higher median salary than women both in Harris’s Senate office and on her campaign.
Who would have guessed?
Oh look, the Federal Judge who just ruled that President Trump must turn over his financial records to Congressional Dems, also just so happens to be an Obama-Biden donor.

Via Fox News:
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee vowed Tuesday to go to court if necessary to seek former White House Counsel Don McGahn’s testimony, after he defied a subpoena and skipped a committee hearing at President Trump’s direction.
The move infuriated Democrats and touched off what could be another high-profile battle over holding a Trump official in contempt of Congress.
“Let me be clear, this committee will hear Mr. McGahn’s testimony, even if we have to go to court to secure it,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, said, accusing Trump of witness intimidation.
He added, “When this committee issues a subpoena, even to a senior presidential adviser, the witness must show up. Our subpoenas are not optional.
