Keep your eye open for 'Democrats' here supporting Michelle Caruso-Cabrera

Shockingly there are many 'Democrats' here who are throwing their support behind Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. MCC has recently switched from being a registered Republican to a registered Democrat. That would normally not be an issue but when we examine MCC's record it becomes apparent that this is not merely a case of someone seeing the light and wanting to be on the right side of history.

Upon examining her record, we find that not only was MCC a registered Republican, she was an extremely right wing, ultra-conservative Republican who recently (2010) wrote a book calling for the abolishment of Medicare and Social Security.

Digging into MCC's record further, we find that MCC actually lived in a Donald Trump property until 2019. Not only that, but the forward of her book was written by none other than Larry Kudlow, Donald Trump's Director of the United States National Economic Council. You can look into some of the interviews she gave while peddling her book for yourself. She made many statements that would make even the most radical tea party members look reasonable. MCC is NOT a Democrat.

Let's be clear: MCC has switched parties specifically and with the sole purpose of attempting to sabotage Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC threatens Republicans so much that they are doing everything they can to attempt to sabotage her. AOC is hated so thoroughly by certain so-called Democrats for her outspoken criticism of centrist policies and corporate welfare that these so-called Democrats are ignoring the wolf-in-sheep's clothing just to try to stick a knife in AOC's back.

BE WARNED.

If you see any of these people trying to weasel support for MCC here, confront them immediately so that other posters may see what is occurring. They will not respond with anything of substance when challenged. Mark their names down.

17. Some people are worried about the effect the statue business could have

on the important business of getting Dems elected and addressing the real problems with the police.

It's not that they're worried about "teh statues". They're worried that it could undermine the real work for positive change.

26. I mean examples like comparing American protestors to the Taliban

There are thousands or millions of protestors we have no control over it and Biden is way ahead in the polls. I would understand the concerns but since the protests Biden has outraised Trump and is beating him by double digits..

Biden was ahead in the polls on the day of Super Tuesday and he won Super Tuesday. Biden polled higher in Michigan and won Michigan. I feel confident in the polls.

50. I love Elizabeth Warren, but she doesn't just walk the Democratic walk,

she walks the DNC walk. She has endorsed DNC-approved moderate Dems in primaries over real progressive Dems. This past weekend she endorsed Republican-lite, fracking-loving John Hickenlooper over real progressive Andrew Romanoff for the Democratic Senate nomination to unseat Cory Gardner.

party since she stepped in. She does what the Lincoln Project does, but she does it from our side of the fence.

One day the Lincoln Project will again turn their vitriol against the democrats. AOC will still be with us.

29. I was on one last week,

the alerted post was simply MCC's record, and pointing out that she is heavily funded by Banksters (who also hate AOC). It was informative and provided credible sources.

It's a "safe" blue district, it's the only reason she switched parties.

43. Am I completely wrong in experiencing this OP as a threat?

Frankly, I'm glad that's not my district. The foolish irresponsibility of the nearly 90% who didn't bother to vote in the last election didn't result in choices too illiberal left and too potential blue-dog right to represent me. I feel sure that's not what those who just blew off their primary election imagined would come of it.

It seems possible that as MCC claims she really is both economically conservative and socially liberal -- a combination that many millions of women share. Including Elizabeth Warren, with her big-thinking iconoclastic fixes designed to build on liberal New Deal advances (our traditional ways, thus natural fits for traditional conservatives).

So, after 2 years of Ocasio's contribution to 2016 and her record since as this district's congresswoman, I would have to give serious consideration to whether a future blue dog might imperfectly but better reflect my wishes for a responsible social liberal candidate. I'd of course depend on the rest of the house caucus, and her own NY delegation, to keep her from doing economic harm.

As I said, glad it's not my choice, but I would be looking at all choices in hopes of myself making the best choice while doing the least harm.

Don't like it, oh well.

49. Blew off the primary

Crowley was on the ballot for the general election and she beat him twice. He voted for the Iraq war and she used that against him and other bad positions he took and after he lost he became a lobbyist. I doubt people there would rather him considering that.

One thing I do know is moderates will sabotage progressives chances against right wingers like they did in the UK. The Tory party sold out to Russia but the Third Way there sabotaged Corbyn. Then they complain about the few progressives that don't vote for the general election candidate in the US.

57. I am and have always been a strong progressive liberal,

the real thing without lapse. I'd never risk losing an election to the death-to-progressivism Republicans because of some bizarre delusion that there was little difference between them and me.

Nor would I ever for a moment want to elect anyone to government who supported an attempt to overset my Democratic vote, and those of many millions of others. The closest I come to religion is commitment to representative government of, by and for the people.

And with both progressive service to the people and commitment to serving the will of the people in mind, everyone should be able to understand that I'd be extremely unhappy at my congressman serving a national "constituency's" frivolous wishes instead of my and my district's wishes. And costing us dearly.

There won't be another Amazon headquarters, bringing in a prospective 50,000 jobs and drawing more tech businesses, coming along any time soon. If I lived in that district, I'd have never forgotten NYC's terrible economic stagnation of the 1970s and what it did to people then. Economists say this year that disastrous fiscal crisis could hit NYC again, and soon.

This isn't a theoretical decision but real life. Of course I'd be trying to decide who'd do the least harm until I had choices that suited me better in 2022.

PTWB, I'd need to learn as much as I could about her, but I just talked myself into suspecting MCC might be the better choice for the next two years. In a district that blue it should be easy to get rid of her if she didn't serve her constituents' wishes. And you can believe me when I say I wouldn't hesitate. Our reps owe us everything. We owe them normal courtesy as we monitor their performance, and that's all.

MCC prompted her book abolishing social security and Medicare less than two years ago, while promoting her ties to Larry Kudlow of the Trump administration. She moved out of Trump tower just one year ago.

Anyone who supports her after learning these facts ought to have that support be known by all members of this forum.

The only threat here is to shine a bright light on the MCC supporters so that everyone can see exactly what theyíre doing. If transparency and illumination is a threat to someone, they ought to think about what theyíre doing.

The reason AOC has so many detractors is because she is an outspoken woman of color who DARES to challenge the white patriarchy and those who support/benefit from it. Corporatists know they have to take her down now or they'll be dealing with her for decades.

People expect AOC to be subservient to Pelosi (who I think is a fabulous Democrat) but that would legitimize every position that AOC takes. It would render her ineffective and she would no longer be taken as sincere and genuine.

Our tent is plenty big enough for wonderful Democrats like AOC and Nancy Pelosi, even if they don't see eye to eye on every issue.

But we all form opinions of other posters based on things they wrote and positions they hold. I donít think you can compare attacks on Biden and attacks on MCC. MCC wrote her positions down in a book in 2010 and was hawking that book as recently as 2018. She lived in Trump tower until moving into the district in 2019 so she could run against AOC. The forward to her book was written by Larry Kudlow (extreme right winger in Trump administration) and she was publicly promoting that as recently as 2018.

These are all easily verifiable facts.

2020 running in Democratic primary against one of Trumpís most fierce critics.

Besides, DU is a tiny universe unlikely to make any difference in the primaries, especially in local races.

Democracy is messy. It's supposed to be. I take heart in the fact that a Democrat will win this race. Remember, blue no matter who!

64. I'm the opposite.

I welcome folks with progressive values joining our party. We have a great big fabulous blue tent!

MCC is a radical right wing, ultra conservative extremist who as recently as 2018 was promoting her book in which she advocated for the abolition of social security and Medicare. In 2019 she moved out of Trump tower. In 2018 she promoted that the forward of her right wing book was written by ultra-conservative Larry Kudlow of the Trump administration.

75. I guess this is where we differ. I welcome everyone to the party.

I am not holding it against Bernie advocating extra-parliamentary populist methods of governing just a year ago (AOC never went this far, BTW, and I have no issue with her being more progressive than, say, Biden). As long as MCC agrees, no matter her past, and despite being more conservative than, say, Biden, to adhere to and promote common Democratic values, she gets my benefit of doubt. Should MCC win (very unlikely) and then fail to represent her constituents as a Democrat, that is where and WHEN I draw the line. Not before.

76. Do you believe MCC is genuine?

Less than 2 years ago she was promoting her book advocating abolishing social security and Medicaid, and ties to the Trump administration. One year ago she moved out of Trump tower and into AOCís neighborhood to be eligible to mount her primary challenge.

Does the timing not give you reason to question her motives and the motives of her supporters?

Not being a voter in that district or a zealously involved outsider, I haven't felt the slightest inclination to read her book. But I confess you've made me slightly curious.

She stopped advocating it around the time she decided to run in AOC's primary. Her reasoning was wanting smaller government and admiring Ronald Reagan's cuts to entitlement and social programs.

153. Thanks. Yes, Reagan, relict of run-of-the-mill elitist conservatism

from before the turn of the century, I did skim some of that.

My impression was that her positions have been rather fluid, depending on the situation and times. But she's apparently been at least mostly liberal socially for a long time; and ultimately, when the Republican Party went whacko far right she declined to go along. I'm glad I don't have to vote for one of them, but she is what she really is.

Btw, the Democratic house caucus has 27 blue dogs now out of 235 total. Perspective. Also, state reps tend to vote together, and NY averages blue. No big deal for NY or the nation or even the party if she's elected. The system won't let single reps do much harm, except potentially at home. And that'd be that district's problem to deal with.

161. It's actually an extremely common mix, in women more

than men. People still tend to "average" more liberal or conservative and identify accordingly, but again more women are likely to lean left overall than men due to placing greater weight on social issues. She seems to have been pretty economically oriented, though.

Once again, I must refer you to Bernie. I can list half a dozen of instances in which he was disruptive towards Democrats. Many blame him for Trump's victory, at least in part. One year ago he wasn't a Democrat. Four years ago he was. Six years ago he wasn't. How long can I hold it against him when he broke with his past and is now putting a genuine effort into electing a Democrat?

The analogy between Bernie and MCC was raised in the context of the OP, which I found quite divisive. It was to illustrate that you can find as many faults with Bernie as you can with MCC. Yeah, Bernie's faults do not include abolishing Medicare and SS. But, they include not being a Democrat, an accusation raised in the OP.

This is exactly my point. Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump could run register and run as Democrats and I get the feeling some folks who claim to be Democrats would support them.

Here are the FACTS:

MCC wrote a book in 2010 that deified Ronald Reagan, called for the abolition of social security and Medicare, and had Larry Kudlow (current Trump admin MAGAt) write the forward for that book. She was promoting that book and Larry Kudlow as recently as 2018. She lived in the Trump until 2019.

You can call her and her supporters whatever youíd like. But anyone who cares about FACTS has already decided what to call them.

It would be a huge blow to the progressive movement if AOC goes down. I'm not in her district but I'm nervously awaiting the results from her primary. I care more about her winning her primary than I do about the challenger to Elliot Engel, who really doesn't seem like such a DINO to be deserving of a primary challenge. I'm also worried about the primary to replace Jose Serrano, where a Trump-supporting homophobic city council member may win the primary for the bluest district in the country because there are so many progressive candidates dividing the vote.

Anyway, after I read 'The Ferret's' piece, I have a date with the dinner dishes, and then a shower. No time for you at all, sorry.

191. Trolling Is A Time-Sink, Dear

The object is to provoke a disproportionate reaction, whether in emotion or effort. You cannot provoke an emotional reaction from me: you do not matter to me in the slightest, being just one more source of minor amusements. It is not my practice to pay up a few paragraphs in response to a short textbook bit that cannot have taken you more than half a minute to type out: I always have better use for a quarter hour or so. You are only getting this because at the moment a bit of distraction from stirring a sauce I really ought to leave untouched is useful.

197. Hmmm

That is a lengthy paragraph just to say you (still) couldn't come up with anything specific. Iím delighted you somehow found the time to say that much.

201. It was very long when the following sentence would have been sufficient:

ďI have no specifics to provide.Ē

Youíre the one who claimed to be too busy to participate!

204. Bless your heart!

I donít know who you are but I was genuinely curious what youíd come up with after your initial post in this thread. That you could not provide a specific occurrence to support your initial claims was disappointing but expected.

210. Sometimes it can be amusing to engage in even the most futile of exercises.

One of my favorite forum pastimes is watching folks squirm when they're unable to support claims they make in their post.

212. Exactly! I was lied about and then ordered to jump through hoops to refute the lies

and kiss the ring. It was beyond ridiculous. Your description is very kind.

Iíve never seen so much projection from someone who has so little to say.

How is it youíve been unable to come up with a single sentence supporting your initial post? Amazing!

218. I'm surprised you hung on this long.

How many times and how many different ways can someone say nothing at all?

Imagine if youíd put this much energy into coming up with something to support your initial post.

202. Well Enough, Sir

The sauce came out nice. A marinara in case a new clam sauce does not appeal to everyone in the household.

Grandson got his driver's license, so transport at need is at the ready.

Daughter gave birth to our third granddaughter, we have been able to visit. It was a bit interesting navigating across the city, with curfew in place and most entries to downtown closed. That has all eased up, of course.

206. Great

I have a training session tonight for voter protection for the July primary runoff. We are not doing formal war rooms but will be working in virtual war rooms. It will be interesting. There will be no real issues for the primary run off but this is a test run for November

I just saw that the Texas GOP is holding their state conventions in person in Houston I July and that these idiots will not be social distancing and will probably not be wearing masks


The Texas Democratic party virtual convention came off with problems. I ended up on the Rules Committee again and had a three + hour zoom meeting

We were a touch worried about the prospects when the plague hit, but things were well managed in Illinois and Chicago, and they could keep the obstetrics ward open for its dedicated purpose.
