WOW Democratic Socialist Defeats Virginia GOP House Whip

Two days after last year's presidential election I wrote:
 The socialists are going to experience a boom in followers under Trump.
A week later, I wrote:
Donald Trump is the Best Thing That Ever Happened to the U.S. Socialist Movement

 In time, libertarian support for Donald Trump will be viewed as a strategic error.

Trump will most likely be both a horrifically totalitarian president on the domestic front and a warring president on the global front.

From a longer-term timeline, blowback to Trump could very well usher in socialist rule in America.
And now, one year later, an off-year for elections, Trump candidates are going down to major defeats. The lefty and socialist advances have

In Virginia, the Democrat Ralph Northam defeated the Republican Ed Gillespie in the governor’s race.

In New Jersey, the Democrat Phil Murphy defeated Republican Kim Guadagno.

The openly transgender Democrat, Danica Roem, ousted longtime incumbent conservative House Republican Del. Robert G. Marshall.

Roem positions:
Supports  women's rights, LGBTQ rights, raising the minimum wage and making health insurance more accessible and affordable for everyone. 
And most shocking, Virginia GOP House Whip Jackson Hunter Miller in the 50th Virginia district was defeated by a Democratic Socialist Lee Carter.

Here are positions held by Carter:
Medicaid expansion.
Higher minimum wage.
Supports unions.
Supports  "pay-equity" and workplace "rights."
Wants more investment in the "Green Energy Economy."
Trump must be attacked for every interventionist move he makes. He is not a friend of free markets or liberty in general.

It should be made clear at every opportunity that there is an alternative to Trump that is not lefty or socialist. It is free markets and liberty.  The rejection of Trump is causing the country, especially the youth, to move leftist and socialist. Very dangerous.






Via The Hill:

Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (Va.) called the GOP defeat in Virginia’s gubernatorial race a “referendum” on President Trump's administration on Tuesday.

Taylor's remark represents a break with Trump’s tweeted claim that Republican Ed Gillespie lost to Lt. Gov Ralph Northam (D) because the governor hopeful wouldn’t tie himself closely enough to Trump. Northam held an 8-point lead with 97 percent of precincts reporting.

“I don’t know how you get around that this wasn’t a referendum on the administration, I just don’t," Taylor told reporters at Gillespie's election night party. "Some of the very divisive rhetoric really prompted and helped usher in a really high Democratic turnout in Virginia."
Taylor also referenced other Republican defeats in the state, where Democrats are expected to win all statewide races and gain ground in the House of Delegates.

“I know what the president tweeted. With all due respect to him I think he’s profoundly wrong in his tweet," Taylor said. "I’m telling you that from someone who is from Virginia, who watched these races, who watched people lose tonight against opponents who are completely no name.”



Via The Intercept:
[I]n Georgia, Liliana Bakhtiari, a Working Families Party and Our Revolution-backed queer Muslim woman defeated an incumbent Atlanta city councilwoman. The Committee for a Better Atlanta, a business group in the city, gave her a rating of “not qualified” during the election campaign;  


Via The New Republic:

 Carter ran openly as a socialist—he and his supporters crooned the union anthem “Solidarity Forever” after their victory—and he won with almost no institutional support from the state Democratic Party....

Plenty of the credit for this race belongs to a cadre of idealistic young people, since much of the ground organizing came from local members of the Democratic Socialists of America. The group’s D.C. chapter endorsed Carter, and one of the chapter’s leaders, 22-year-old American University graduate Jacquelyn Smith, managed his campaign.


  1. The civil rights lawyer who sued the Philly coproach den will be interesting thing to keep an eye on

  2. making the claim that its about Trump is kind of dumb since the guy that lost to the trans woman in Virginia ran a shitty campaign always referring to the TW as "he" all the time even calling himself the biggest homophobe in the state. for his next move he should have announced he would have no qualms about drowning a sack of kittens
    included in this big democrat wave was Bill de Blasio getting reelected which is not a surprise at all.

  3. Wow!!! How many false perceptions need to be fitted into one thought for entry in the Guinness Book of World Records? Use your brains! Libertarians have Trump. Progressives have Clinton. The contributor class that finances your propaganda mill have both. Voters want to jump ship by overwhelming proportions. The best outcome is for the left to go progressive, the right to go libertarian, and for the progressives and libertarians to co-exist in a world of peace, love, and understanding, with the goal of crushing the Clinton and Trump camps. That is exactly what just happened in France. The sooner libertarians recognize that trend, the sooner their lot in life will improve. The longer you call progressives names like ¨socialists,¨ the more sure will be your continued minimization. The ¨left¨ leaning 50% and the ¨right¨ leaning 50% both need someone to vote for other than the neoliberal show models for contributor class oligarchs. Libertarians will vote for Sanders if Trump and neoliberals are not defeated first. Maybe you should give them an alternative so the right leaning half of the country has a choice!
