Democrats undergo progressive schism, as Trump disrupts entire US political structure (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 37.

US President Donald Trump says he is “winning”, but what he is actually doing is disrupting the entire US political structure, and causing mass hysteria among the powerful liberal left media and wealthy socialite strata.

From a Russia collusion hoax to a fake TIME magazine cover, and now a Supreme Court justice seat suddenly vacant, Democrats are in full panic mode. Open-borders globalists are calling for a revolution, and Auntie Maxine is pressing her legion of zombies to confront MAGA hat wearers and “push back” against them anywhere they may be.

To further complicate matters, the progressive left chalked up a massive win in New York, 28-year-old political newcomer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, beat veteran politician Joe Crowley, in New York’s Democratic Party congressional primary election Tuesday night in a shocking upset within the Democratic Party.

Ocasio-Cortez won 57.5% of the vote, while Crowley had 42.5%. Crowley has represented New York’s 14th District since 1999 and was being groomed as a potential replacement to Nancy Pelosi. Ocasio-Cortez’s victory is a major upset within the Democrat Party, which has now undergone a full schism between the center-establishment and left-progressive wings of the party.

Meanwhile Trump keeps his messaging simple, playing to his base, giving rousing rally speeches in places like Fargo, North Dakota, as he touts his economic progress and foreign policy détente.

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou analyze a stunning week of news in an America dominated by Trump’s larger than life charisma, and how the Democrat party (now in complete disarray), will deal with an upstart progressive platform pushing the party to go hard left.

The US Trotskyites are finally coming out of the closet.

Hopefully their value as target-rich entities will be recognized by Americans BEFORE they start building the US GULAG to incarcerate anyone who opposes them.

The mixing of meaning of Liberal and Progressive is annoying. It’s one think to hear and see Fox news people confused, but shouldn’t exist here. A Progressive believes in the ideals of FDR and Henry Wallace. A Liberal is anti-Constitution seeking to overthrow the existing legal and government order to the benefit of the elite, their banks, their corporations. Liberals exist in both parties. Today’s Progressive Caucus play no part in the phony Russia and promotion of a second Civil War in America. The Progressive Caucus is a part of the Democratic Party and represents the most advanced political… Read more »

Unfortunately, the “progressive left” of the Democratic Party will only concern itself with identity politics issues. One look at Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign website makes that very clear. They will do nothing to stop US imperialism or regime change wars.

Lavelle got it right–it’s the donor class that keeps the professional Democrats in thrall and this has been the case since 1978 more or less the exact date that wealth started to flow to the very rich. Forty years of the Democratic Party moving solidly and inexorably to the right. At the same time the left, which was once interested in the working class went solidly to the right by abandoning class-struggle and moving towards identity politics that has been instrumental in fragmenting and degrading our society. Now the right is also solidly into identity politics as a reaction. The… Read more »
