Terrified by Progressive Enthusiasm Sweeping the Nation, Corporate Democrats Have Begun Planning a 'Counterrevolution'

"A reminder that these are the same people who tried to cut Social Security under Obama. Anyone who associates with Third Way is part of a plan to do it under the next president."

Democratic leaders "need to wake up and pay attention to what people actually want. There are so many progressive policies that have widespread support that mainstream Democrats are not picking up on, or putting that stuff down and saying, 'That wouldn't really work,'" said social worker Rachel Conner.

There are so many progressive policies that have widespread support that mainstream Democrats are not picking up on, or putting that stuff down and saying, 'That wouldn't really work,'" said social worker Rachel Conner. (Photo: Jaime Green/The Wichita Eagle via AP)

Corporate Democrats are extremely worried about the wave of progressive enthusiasmthat is sweeping the country in red and blue states alike, and—according to a report by NBC News on Sunday—they are beginning to organize a "counterrevolution" to beat it back.

Ignoring survey after survey showing that progressive priorities like Medicare for All, a living wage, and tuition-free public college are overwhelmingly popular among the American public, Democratic politicians and operatives with the notorious think-tank Third Way used an invite-only event in Columbus, Ohio on Friday to tout an alternative agenda that centers on "opportunity" and access rather than equality—a platform that explicitly avoids alienating the ultra-wealthy.

"You're not going to make me hate somebody just because they're rich. I want to be rich!" Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said during last week's closed-door event, which was titled "Opportunity 2020."

"Once again," added Third Way president Jon Cowan, "the time has come to mend, but not end, capitalism for a new era."

As NBC's Alex Seitz-Wald notes, the "anxiety" centrist Democrats have felt about the rousing campaigns of democratic socialists and bold progressives like New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Michigan's Abdul El-Sayed "has largely been kept to a whisper among the party's moderates and big donors."

But now, with organized events and more frequent interviews with the press, corporate Democrats and strategists are beginning to openly state their plans to undercut surging progressive momentum, "with some of the major fundraisers pressing operatives on what can be done to stop" Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) if he decides to launch another bid for the presidency, Seitz-Wald reports.

"Sanders' wing of the party terrifies moderate Dems," Seitz-Wald writes.

"They need to wake up and pay attention to what people actually want. There are so many progressive policies that have widespread support that mainstream Democrats are not picking up on, or putting that stuff down." 
—Rachel Conner, social worker

In terms of electoral strategy, Democratic insiders are advocating an approach that reaches out to so-called moderate Republicans who have supposedly broken with Trump, instead of placing the bulk of their focus on inspiring both non-voters and Democrats disgruntled by the party's corporate turn.

"Where progressives see a rare opportunity to capitalize on an energized Democratic base, moderates see a better chance to win over Republicans turned off by Trump," as Seitz-Wald explains.

The problem with this approach, as many commentators have noted, is that it was tried in 2016—and it failed miserably.

As a counter to progressive ideas like a federal jobs guarantee, Medicare for All, and expanded Social Security benefits, NBC reports that Third Way has put forth an "apprenticeship program to train workers, a privatized employer-funded universal pension that would supplement Social Security, and an overhaul of unemployment insurance to include skills training."

Progressives were quick to denounce such proposals as a thinly-veiled push to privatize Social Security and undermine more ambitious—and far more popular—left-wing proposals that have been winning big in Democratic primaries across the nation.

Responding to the Democratic establishment's attempts to dismiss the successes of bold progressives and uphold a toxic status quo, 27-year-old social worker Rachel Conner told the New York Times on Saturday: "They need to wake up and pay attention to what people actually want. There are so many progressive policies that have widespread support that mainstream Democrats are not picking up on, or putting that stuff down and saying, 'That wouldn't really work.'"

Is this meddling in elections?  The elites can’t stand the people ignoring their orders.  But mainly he’s probably concerned about his own rear end and knows the Democrats will cover for him.

Ocasio-Cortez In Kansas: 'We're Going To Flip This Seat RED In November'

What the heck is this woman talking about? She doesn't realize Blue States are Dems? Or was it a Freudian Slip and she really meant Communist Red?

Not a clue about the Palestinian and Israel conflict...not a clue about the economy or economics...not a clue about Red or Blue seats.

Bloated Hillary Hits The Beach

AMAGANSETT, Massachusetts (WNB) - Bill and Hillary Clinton were recently photographed walking their dogs on a beach near a mansion they are renting for over $33,000 a week.

The power couple were a study of contrasts - the gaunt former president in black shorts and shirt, while the bloated Hillary attempted to conceal her gelatinous mass in a bright blue muumuu.

There was a brief scare when Secret Service bodyguards apprehended a local fisherman who approached the former Sec. State with what appeared to be a harpoon. Later, Bill was seen trolling the beach while an oblivious Hillary looked on (below).

Ahhhh, I've been expecting this question. The Republican party has been shit for a few decades now and I don't bother flapping my jaws too much about it. It's been fait accompli as far as I'm concerned. 

I'm much more concerned with the state of the Democrats today. I have always leaned toward them from my independent stance. But as an independent I have always judged candidates and policies from my own view as to what I believe to be the best interests of working Americans, of diplomatic trade relations over seas, non interventionist actions. More or less what I think will be best for all of us on this rock. More often than not the Democrats were doing better in all these areas. Economic policies, social policies, foreign relations, environmental issues, health care, etc. 

That was then, this is now..........the DNC today is nothing more than the other wing of the singular party of Banks/Wall St that runs it all. Even an idiot like myself or anyone with a brain should have been able to deduce this after the spectacle of the 2016 farce. I'm sorry, but I don't see any real difference between the GOP and the DNC. They both mouth ridiculous non committal memes which only serve to excite and mislead, while they both answer to their W.all St/M.I.C Corporate lobbyists.

"PARTY"? Really? Sorry  but they both seem to be working for the Oligarchy now. The danger and reason I harp on the DNC is the concern that people will be hoodwinked once again as the DNC will PRETEND to become progressive, seduce the electorate with promises, and then do nothing and claim as they have done time and time again...........it takes time, I'm working on it, I care so much, and so on...........while we the people eat shit again, and again. 

Cortez talks a great game, I only hope that she is for real and that it is a sign that people are actually awakening to reality. My hope springs eternal and I hope to celebrate in the streets in 2018 and then again in 2020. The past 4 decades don't exactly help my confidence, but I hope.

The reality is that BOTH parties are experiencing HUGE division within their own ranks right now. The extreme right is battling with the centrist right and the extreme left is battling with the centrist left. It will be interesting to see what happens.

A List of DNC Lies/Expectations:


-Bernie Sanders is somehow a traitor to the causes of the Dem Socs and the labor party aka green party.


-Democratic Socialism doesn't already exist in our culture and is somehow exactly like marxism even when it's nothing like it.


-Every Democratic Socialist is somehow a capitalist with an agenda that would end all rich people and make it impossible to become rich.


-You absolutely have to follow along and never disagree with the mob otherwise you too will suddenly become the latest "enemy" aka 
#Putin#Trump #Russianagent #SecretlyRepublican 


-Everything that a feminist says about anyone is absolutely true and should always be believed despite the facts that typically there are no police reports or police investigations because no one 30 years ago, ever made a complaint to the authorities.


(If you happen to follow any of these, it's best you don't, and begin the process of deprogramming yourself. Take a look on youtube on how investigations are done to help yourself come out of the long slumber you're in.)

by Jake Johnson, staff writer 
With progressives still mobilized and angrier than ever following Judge Brett Kavanaugh's successful confirmation to the Supreme Court amid credible sexual assault allegations, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) provided further cause for fury—and added to already deafening calls for new leadership in the Democratic Party—by cutting a deal behind closed doors with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) late Thursday to fast-track 15 more of Trump's right-wing judges to lifetime federal court positions.
