On Monday evening, … Harris embraced every radical position available to her – presumably in an attempt to crowd out candidates to her Left, including Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
With that strategy in mind, she embraced Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s so-called Green New Deal, which would cost an estimated $49 trillion over the next ten years, as well as slashing the military in half, eliminating natural gas and coal within 11 years, and banning gasoline-powered vehicles.

Democrats, honing in on President Trump’s personal unpopularity, apparently mistake the public rejection of Trump’s personal foibles for public warmth toward full-scale Leftism. There’s simply no evidence of that. That’s why Democrats are panicking over the possibility of a third party candidate like Howard Schultz, former Starbucks CEO, who could siphon off many anti-Trump votes by not running as a complete loony. There’s room for an anti-Trump centrist in this electorate – and that running space has been created by a Democratic Party beholden to its radical base. …

The 2020 election should be a cracker. In addition there is a recession looming for late this year or early next, which could upset the massively loaded apple-cart of debt. It will make many people feel seriously poorer, and call forth all sorts of snake-oil excuses from the left for turning on the printing presses. The carbon dioxide theory of global warming will be outed, as based on a modeling error made in the 1960s. PC fantasy versus reality from every direction.
