Political Warfare 2020: Understanding the Political Weaponry Targeting the Democratic Party

This is an article I'm not altogether excited about, because it may offend some of my friends on the political left who have their hearts set on a particular candidate.

But it's an article that must be written, nevertheless.

The Democratic Party is facing the political race of its life.

What many on the left didn't notice was how the Tea Party and, later, the alt-Right divided up the political right.  But that was only part of the multi-year strategy that led up to Trump's victory in 2016.  The 2016 GOP primaries were loaded with abysmal candidates, ranging from Carly Fiorina who, if you dig deep enough, was involved in a phony Hewlett-Packard ink shortage in Germany in the mid-1990s...and don't get me started on Hewlett-Packard...downright ORWELLIAN... John Kasich, whose strategic campaign advisor was Charlie Black (you know...of BLACK, STONE, MANAFORT & KELLY, LLC fame)... Havana Ted... Comrade Ron's son, Rand Paul... former Louisiana governor (ahem) and former McKinsey and Company employee Bobby Jindal... Chris Christie, the man who likes having the Russian mob kick his ass around more than anyone in politics I have personally ever seen (what kind of blackmail do they HAVE on you, Chris?)...

And so on.

If you haven't noticed, the DNC's 2020 candidate roster is quickly filling up.  And from where I'm sitting, people need to pay very close attention.

There's Bernie Sanders, whose 2016 run was literally a neverending series of Russia Today puff-pieces.  Here they are, BTW:

Russia Today: Rumble: Bernie for Prez

Russia Today: Politics Panel: Bernie-Mentum is real

Russia Today: Is Bernie Sanders the criminal reform candidate?

Russia Today: Bernie Sanders speaks the truth on Greece

Russia Today: Rumble: Doesn't this show Bernie understands the real "average joe"?

Russia Today: Bernie Sanders draws nearly 30,000 in Portland

Russia Today: Why is Chris Matthews comparing Bernie to Mao Tse Tsung?

Russia Today: Bernie Trumped by mainstream media

Russia Today: Sanders the Populist and Trump the Fascist

Russia Today: Republcan panelist feels the Bern

Russia Today: Iowa's feeling the Bern

Russia Today: The Progressive roundtable feels the Bern

Russia Today: Feel the Bern, Wednesday

Russia Today: Stop calling Bernie a Socialist

Russia Today: Politics Panel: Here's how Bernie can win

Russia Today: Why this Republican is voting for Bernie

Russia Today: Politics Panel: What would a Bernie presidency look like?

Russia Today: Hillary gets Berned

Russia Today: Bernie Sanders may win the White House

Russia Today: Will Bernie be the beginning of a Revolution?

Russia Today: The Media's "Wave of Silence" on Sen. Bernie Sanders & Why

Russia Today: Bernie Sanders could be the next FDR

Bernie is NEVER GOING TO WIN. But, as you may have guessed, winning isn't part of the strategy. The strategy is to divide the Democratic Party vote to favor Trump.

And, BTW, Bernie's 2016 campaign manager and his emails are listed among the evidence in the ongoing court battles Paul Manafort will be facing, vs. the Department of Justice.

Then there's the Bashar al-Assad sympathizer, Tulsi Gabbard, who wants us to all just move ahead after Barr's four-page summary of Mueller's report, report sight unseen, and stop pursuing Trump.

And by the way...BARR reported. We haven't seen Mueller's report, honey...

Then there's Kirsten Gillibrand, who quickly pulled the trigger in support of what clearly was, in hindsight, a political hackjob to shame Al Franken out of office. She was also an early supporter of the "Abolish ICE" movement which focuses on eliminating ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), who partnered with the Department of Justice to combat drug trafficking and human trafficking on U.S. borders.  Noticeably absent: Any objection to U.S. taxpayer dollars funding Trump's allegedly dirty and mob-connected USG border wall contractors.  I could go on about Gillibrand's intersections with Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders, but I'm already bored talking about Gillibrand.

Sigh, I don't want to talk about Kamala Harris, because no one wants to hear about her connections.  More importantly, she carries with her a built-in October surprise that Republicans already know about.

But there's good news!

There's excitement building on the RIGHT for certain Democratic Party candidates.

Despite what you may have been told, there are many on the political right and in America's juicy political center who are eager to vote for someone other than Donald Trump in 2020.  But these millions of voters aren't going to vote for divisive candidates.  Nor are they going to vote for a candidate merely because they have some kind of hangup about electing someone because of their race, gender or identity politics.

Guess who they would vote for in a New York minute?

And, once again, Democrats are falling for the same trick that bled them votes in the 2018 midterm elections (nobody vetted Dr. Ford...well, I did).


We're talking about a political attack from a Bernie supporter who, IN HER OWN WORDS, is politically-motivated.

The ONE Democratic Party candidate who could beat Trump in a landslide, and we are allowing this take-down operation to continue.

We are witnessing, firsthand, the weaponization of identity politics I have been warning everyone about.

Let's stop this in its tracks.


  1. This Amy Lappos character has a definite agenda as revealed by her pre-2019 rabid Hillaryite cred:

    "About the contributor

    1. Feels like Kavanaugh hearing 2.0 in the case of Biden already.

  2. A lot of this makes sense to me on the surface, or when considered as isolated sets of facts, but I can't wrap my head around the underlying motivations. What's in it for Gabbard, for example, to play the game she's playing? How does a person like her become so completely aligned with Kremlin objectives? How many of the key players are useful idiots, and how many are deliberately working to advance Putin's aims? How much is attributable to blackmail?

    There's no question that some of the marquee names are badly compromised by something. I wish it weren't so difficult to unravel more of the picture.
