      The “Our diversity is our strength!” Party is starting to look rather monochromatic in its upper echelons these days.

      The four leading candidates for its presidential nomination — Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg — are all white.

      The six candidates who have qualified for the Dec. 19 debate — the front four, plus Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer — are all white.

      Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer are both white, as are Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Whip Dick Durbin.

      The chairs of the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees managing impeachment, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, are both white. And as Congressman Al Green railed Wednesday, all three experts Nadler invited to make the Democrats’ case for impeachment were white law professors. How come?

      Absent affirmative action by the DNC, neither Cory Booker, the leading black candidate for the nomination, nor Julian Castro, the leading Hispanic, will be on the stage Dec. 19.

      But though there is zero racial diversity among the top six Democrats in the presidential field, there is gender, ethnic and ideological diversity.

      Warren would be the first woman president; Sanders, the first Jewish nominee; and Buttigieg would be the first gay nominee.

      Yet the lack of racial diversity across the party hierarchy is going to put immense pressure on Joe Biden, should he win the nomination. If he hopes to reunite the Obama coalition, a woman and/or person of color as his running mate would seem an absolute imperative.

      And before Biden gets there, he has other problems.

      His “No Malarkey” bus tour across Iowa is all about his fear that, if he loses Iowa on Feb. 3 and New Hampshire on Feb. 11, he may not survive to reach his South Carolina firewall on Feb. 25.

      Though he leads in the national polls, Iowa and New Hampshire polls have Biden running as low as fourth. Never has a candidate contested and lost both those states and then gone on to win the nomination.

      Nor are these Joe’s only problems.

      Call them what you will — gaffes, mental lapses — his repeated verbal miscues, some of which have caused debate rivals to laugh out loud at Joe, are a cause of alarm among Democrats who fear a Biden-Trump TV debate could produce a debacle for their man.

      Nor are the other front-runners without racial-ethnic problems.

      African Americans are a bedrock constituency of the Democratic Party. In recent presidential elections, they have voted 90% for the party’s nominee, and even higher for Barack Obama.

      How is Mayor Pete doing with this constituency?

      While running first in some polls in Iowa, his share of the African American vote in South Carolina, in a recent poll, was zero. Buttigieg had no black support in a state where African Americans constitute more than 60% of the Democratic vote.

      Bernie Sanders, an unapologetic socialist who went to the Soviet Union, Reagan’s “Evil Empire,” for his honeymoon, is holding on to half of the loyal base from his impressive 2016 race against Hillary Clinton.

      ORDER IT NOW

      The other half of Bernie’s base, however, has been captured by Warren. In October, she took the lead in national polls, only to lose that lead when she could not explain how, without major new taxes on the middle class, she could abolish private health insurance and put the entire country on the Medicare rolls.

      And, like Bernie, she is weak with black Democrats, who will decide South Carolina one week before Super Tuesday, when 40% of all the Democratic delegates will be chosen.

      How did Democrats arrive at this pass?

      As the 2019-2020 campaign began, the party divided into two camps.

      There is first the moderate-centrist-pragmatic wing, whose goal is the removal of Trump, and who will go with the Democrat who is the most certain to deliver that. Biden, who spent four decades in the Senate and as vice president, was liked by many and offended few, and was first in the polls, was their natural choice.

      Then there is the ideological left of the party that wants not only to win but also to remake America. It was to this huge slice of the party that Warren and Bernie have made their radical appeals.

      The promise of victory offered by Biden and the ideological agenda offered by Sanders and Warren trumped the ethnic appeal of Booker, Castro and Kamala Harris.

      Now, with the arrival of moneybags Mike Bloomberg and his tens of millions of dollars in ads, almost certain to reach hundreds of millions before Super Tuesday, there is the possibility that four or five candidates will survive to the convention, with no one having a majority of delegates. And the horse-trading will begin.

      My view: Super Tuesday will cut the field to two or three. And the nominee will be one of the six palefaces on the stage Dec. 19.

        Pat you misspelled blue as white here. And Chuck Schumer who you labeled white has a very bluish hue, just like every ‘witness’ called this week during the impeachment farce. It was like watching and episode of the Smurfs, a veritable cornucopia of bluish people’s.

        Steyer and Sanders are Jewish. Jews are only 2% of the population but make up 33% of the remaining Democrat presidential candidates. Yet they tell us they are a powerless minority and any belief or sentiment to the contrary is an “anti-semitic trope”.

        Three of the four so called Constitution experts paraded before the cameras the other day were also Jewish.

        The impeachment proceedings are entirely a Jewish production. There’s little that’s “huwhite” about it.

        The ongoing Jewish coup against the American president is similar to the Jewish Bolshevik overthrow of Czar Nicholas II. Odd considering that Czar Trump is the most philo-semitic American president in history.

        It looks like Biden is currently on tap to serve as a senile and stuttering Lenin.

        It’s not surprising that the democrat party, a party of liars and thieves, would use “diversity” as shock troops to conquer their rivals without actually having to suffer any of the consequences themselves. This is about power, not principle, as it is for all things concerning the upperclass white left. Ask any of them where they live, and it’s always a disproportionately white neighborhood; ask any of them where their kids go to school, and it’s always a private institution where minorities are rare and / or rich; ask any of them what their favorite athletic activity is, and they’ll say something like tennis or golf or yoga — things they know minorities aren’t really into; ask them about their extracurricular activities, and it’s always something where membership is mostly white, like environmentalism. They know exactly what they’re doing. These are horrible human beings.

        How did Democrats arrive at this pass?

        Both of these political parties have become so corrupt and / or extreme that it’s not surprising this is the best they can muster. 2020 is the democrat party’s 2016 – weak, over-hyped candidates with poor credentials and either outdated or dangerous views.

        You say the same thing in every post. Get off it. These elections do indeed get more important by the year because the media, government, and democrat party get more extreme by the year. If Trump had lost 2016, we’d already be in WW3 versus Russia over Syria even though the supposed Assad gas attack has recently been revealed to have been a fraud. All proposed political alternatives have been rejected by these dissident types, so this is what you’re stuck with. Deal with it because that’s what you wanted when you decided to maintain the status quo by doing absolutely nothing about it.

        Racebaiting, political drivel.

        That’s basically the entire democrat platform these days. Who is pushing for racist reparations (Booker), claiming American territory belongs to illegals (Pete B.), and promising free healthcare to all border crossers (every democrat)? Was it the republican party or the democrat party that passed that racist “white supremacy” resolution targeting whites and slandering my race as oppressors? That’s not political drivel. It’s fact. It doesn’t surprise me that all the left can do is deflect and hypocritically blame others for what they have been doing for years.

        Rick Wiles at TruNews nailed it when he called the impeachment farce a “Jew Coup.” He also is concerned that a civil war is coming.

        Michael Savage (who calls himself a lapsed Jew), compared the outrage happening to Trump to Christ’s crucification on the cross.

        Pat, by failing to mention the ethnic make-up of those plotting to remove him, or Mayor Pete’s sexual preference, is an old man increasingly out of touch. Sad what’s happened to the old firebrand, whose books I’ve always loved.

        BTW, why hasn’t Tulsi Gabbard qualified for the next debate? (She’s still trying to beat the deadline, I hear). The DNC, still controlled by Hillary the Witch and her sycophants, hates her and is doing everything within its power, including rigging its phony polls, to get her out of the race. Ironically, Tulsi is a woman of color, being part Polynesian on her father’s side.

        “How is Mayor Pete doing with this constituency?
        While running first in some polls in Iowa, his share of the African American vote in South Carolina, in a recent poll, was zero”…but he’s doing especially well with Jews. ‘The Forward’, which has examined early stages fundraising of this election cycle, place Mayor Butthurt first among all the candidates in raking in Jewish moolah. This could come in even handier later on in the race if he’s still competitive, since 14 of the 18 largest donors to Democrat SuperPac’s (dark money) in the 2018 election were Jewish. But no rush, Jewish lucre has plenty of other options. Pocahontas is married to a Jew. Biden’s shylock son Hunter is also married to a Jewess. And crooked Hillary, if she takes the plunge again, has a Jewish son-in-law. But Klobuchar, even without close Jewish relatives, knows which side her bread is buttered on, too. A regular guest at AIPAC conventions, she’s the only one among the remaining candidates that supported the anti-BDS bill in the Senate. And she recently gushed, “A lot depends on the Jewish community in America because I believe that you can find common ground while still standing your ground.”
        So there may be “diversity” in the back of the bus, but we know who’s still driving the Blue & White bus.

        Perhaps you are too young to recall but in 1990 during the run-up to the first Iraq war, Pat who had become staunchly anti-war by that time, wrote in his column, “There are only 2 groups who are beating the drums for war in the Middle East- the Israeli Defense Ministry and its Amen Corner in the United States.”

        From that instant on, Pat became persona non grata to the Jewish community and its many minions in government and the media.

        You are only partially correct. Jews sleaze their way into power by abandoning their given jewish names and picking nondescript names in which to hide their “jewishness”.

        It’s not “smarts” or “IQ” that gives jews an advantage over gentile whites, but is their rabid insistence on cultural and social cohesiveness, insularity and nepotism (but only for themselves) that gives them an “advantage”.

        This same cultural and social cohesiveness (actually cunning) that is prized so highly by jewish interests is denied to gentile whites. Jews, to a man will fight to deny this same cultural and social cohesiveness to gentile whites that they themselves enjoy as it is a major part of the jewish purpose–the destruction of gentile white culture, which IS superior to any jewish cultural or social society.

        If jews did not possess this power, they would most likely be rag merchants, liquor merchants, or furniture merchants–nothing more.

        As I have previously stated, jewish success is based on cultural and social cohesiveness and insularity–NOT “smarts” or “IQ”. Once enough jews get into a position of power in the work world or education systems, they will hire and promote their own, even bypassing more qualified gentile white candidates.

        Jews have latched on to cultural cohesiveness and nepotism, as it serves their purpose exceedingly well.

        At the same time, jews pushed the destructive concept of racial “equality”, (but only for gentile whites), backing it up with “civil-rights” and “equal accommodation” laws which are enforced by governments–but only against whites. These “civil-rights” laws are used as a “battering ram” against gentile whites to diffuse and fragment any semblance of gentile white solidarity and cohesiveness that may arise.

        A great reckoning dealing with the jews is coming. As gentile whites become more marginalized, the accusation of being tagged as “racist” or a “holocaust denier” is rapidly losing its “sting”.

        Increasingly, jews are more wary of being “called out” and recognized as “jews”. One can call a jew a shyster, shylock, bankster, criminal or ne-er-do-well, and it will roll off his back like water off a duck, BUT call a jew a “jew”, and he will recoil in horror, having been “found out”.

        In a climate of adversity, of course Jews must somewhat stick together. But Jews in their pursuit of wealth are often extorted by the Mafia or powerful non-Jews. They must pay up or are frightened out of business. Investigate any wealthy Jew and you will discover a violent non-Jew watching their back and sharing the profits. The wealthy Jew has not succeeded in social isolation.

        Well I was young but not that young but it didn’t register until I became right wing and racially aware and a little later, Jew wise, in my very early 20’s. Pat was correct that it was Jewish activism that kick started Iraq War I and Democrat Congressman Jim Moran said this about Jewish activism in the run up to Iraq War II:

        “If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this. “The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should.”

        The late Democrat Senator Ernest Hollings opened up at retirement and said that Israel essentially controls our Middle East foreign policy or something to that effect.

        I think Pat got psychically wounded after being fired from MSNBC for writing books from the point of view of white people and taking intense heat for daring to criticize the Israel lobby. He was also unofficially banned from FOX for contradicting neocon orthodoxy and after he embarrassed a hyperventilating Jew tool Shawn Hannity around 9-10 years ago about the “threat” that Iran poses.

        I think Pat has an inner need to see himself as shaping the national discussion about current events and has learned what he can and cannot say, so he serves up politically correct, racially neutral, kosher approved conservatism.

        IOW, you’ll get affirmative action (blaction) presidential candidates. The Republican establishment will laugh and guffaw initially but once the media hails it as progress and social justice and lampoon the Republicans for being “old, white and male” and not following suit then they too will jump on board and make a magic negro like Candace Owens or Condi Rice automatic top tier candidates when they are only polling 3-5%.

        Any members of the Republican base who object to this will be shamed and written off as incels, alt-right, neo-Nazis, fringe extremists and anti-semites.

        Actually, the impeachment process has been transparent and has been employed by patriotic Americans, white and non-white and Christian and non-Christian. It is a POLITICAL process, not a MILITARY one. Sadly, Rick Wiles is off his rocker. Besides, President Trump is smitten with Jews, as he employs many within his own administration.

        Are you kidding?

        Bloomberg is primarily running on an anti-gun campaign. That’s extremely divisive and a terrible strategy for winning over GOP moderates. Gun violence keeps going down outside Black areas so for independents it really isn’t a priority. Health care polls as a much bigger issue and Bloomberg doesn’t have much of a plan.

        He also doesn’t have Black support as seen by his recent reversal on stop and frisk.

        I also doubt he would pick up New York in a primary. They’ll want the leftist.

        None. If you must participate, I suggest any color but Red or Blue. Or are you afraid to “waste” your precious vote?

        The same thing happened to columnist Joe Sobran after he wrote a piece that was critical of israel and its lobby.

        Except Sobran went full on anti-semite and began writing extensively about their control over the media and in their influence in our government and over our foreign policy. He didn’t cuck and avoid controversial subjects as Pat now does.

        Oh I see third party. Would that be the open borders Libertarian party or the leftist Green party?

        There is no third party that represents the people. Most people do not want open borders from Libertarians or the massive levels of government spending called for by the Greens.

        If you want to start a new party then by all means have at it. Most of us would probably donate if you got it to a viable level.

        Until then you have no reason to insult Mr. Buchanan or call anyone sheeple.

        What is the insult? You don’t seem to deny that the Democrats have an awful lineup.

        I’ll stick with Trump unless the Democrats run a moderate candidate that isn’t obsessed with my guns.

        That’s basically the entire democrat platform these days. Who is pushing for racist reparations (Booker), claiming American territory belongs to illegals (Pete B.), and promising free healthcare to all border crossers (every democrat)?

        Let’s also add:

        -Promoting laws against semi-auto rifles owned by rural Whites while scolding anyone that points out how most “gun crime” occurs in Black Democrat cities and involves illegally acquired handguns.

        -Depicting opposition to abortion as coming from oppressive White Christian men when polls have shown that women of all races are divided and have varying opinions.

        -Falling back to failed theories in education and blaming White conservative men for everything when the worst cities are managed by Black Democrats.

        -Depicting White men as the main oppressor of women while promoting Islamic immigration.

        Democrats spend too much time listening to dishonest liberals on TV and not their own constituents. If they stuck to jobs and health care then they would win most elections.

        Oh and I’m a swing voter. Just mentioning that before the expected “but but republicans” response.

        “And I don’t recall your ever disputing my take on this columnist. Do you really find the recent work of “Mr. Paleoconservative” a worthwhile threat to the Establishment?”

        You post anonymously, pinhead. I have no idea what your take on anything is, other than the single post I quoted. And that post made it clear you felt Buchanan’s work to be unworthy of your time. And yet, here you are! Let me guess, you’re the type of self important a-hole who stops at restaurants to tell them you’re not hungry. Seriously, what kind of inbred dolt finds an author not worth their time but always reads them anyway?

        A vote for Trump is still a vote for ZOG.

        Did your vote for Trump end the invasion of this country? It only got worse because Trump isn’t the executive authority of this country’s government, clearly not to the same extent as former US Presidents.

        Don’t believe me? Your ICE officers are changing diapers at the border while arrests and deportations are down and invader numbers are way up. That is because it’s their System, not yours! When are conservatives going to understand that?

        https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/ice-arrested-fewer-2019-resources-shifted-border-67666270

        Of course even if we had a real elected government Trump would still have the Jewdiciary branch to deal with. As you might have noticed, it has put a ‘cosmic injunction’ on any Trump immigration proposal and you can’t vote these rats out.

        Oh and that one corporate tax bill that cuckservative faggots are so happy about?

        That tax bill reversed current law and ensures that alimony is tax free for America’s whore ex-wives – but not for the divorce raped husband/dad. They’ll pay in Shekels once that exchange rate flips.

        The other bill he managed to pass released thousands of violent offenders with thousands more to come. Winning!

        You are not free, you have never been free for a second and voting isn’t going to change a god damn thing.

        If life is an IQ test then so are political campaigns. For example, Kamala Harris started off with lots of deep pocket good will in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, but she hired her idiot sister to run her presidential campaign, abused her staff, and ultimately didn’t connect to the voters who thought she came off as a political opportunist running on her identity instead beneficial public policies which might give voters a reason to elect her. In the end, she proved to be a big dummy. Pretty much all of the minority candidates were given all the resources and media exposure they needed to win, starting the day after Trump was elected. With one exception: Tulsi Gabbard, who showed the Democrats how to win but essentially got blackballed by donors and the media for being a moderate left wing populist who supports the military. There is a pretty tight inverse correlation between intelligence and wokeness, and the only thing non-white on the American political menu these days, due to The Resistance, is uber-woke. If all the non-white politicians are at the back of the bus now, they earned those seats through intemperate views and incompetent campaigning.
