Nikitas3.com predicts that the Democrat candidate for president in 2020 will be a woman – either US senator Kamala Harris of California or US senator Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren of Massachusetts.
Nikitas3.com also predicts that either of them would lose in a landslide to president Trump.
Harris has the edge since she is a “woman of color”. Her father came from Jamaica and her mother came from India. On the other hand ‘Pocahontas’ faked her identity as a native American. This is going to hurt her if the race comes down to these two. Nikitas3.com picks Harris. But they could then run as an all-female ticket. And lose.
Nikitas3.com believed until recently that Bernie Sanders would be the nominee since he ‘played by the rules’ and ran in 2016 and did well and thus was “next in line” for the nomination.
But Sanders is too radical, old and crazy and many Democrats fear a Sanders candidacy – he even took his honeymoon in 1988 in the communist Soviet Union which at the time was still the arch-enemy of America.
Meanwhile the Democrat party is shifting to the far feminist left. It wants women and ‘women of color’ as candidates just as their party is rejecting the interests of white people and white men more and more. This works against Batty Bernie.
Meanwhile allegedly ‘moderate’ white male Democrat front-runner Joe Biden is collapsing. He is looking very old and tired, his poll numbers are falling and he recently made mistake after mistake in a speech, slurred his language repeatedly (he said “President Tump…”) and then ended up saying “What am I doing?” at the end of the speech, as if he did not know where he was. It was bizarre.
That speech alone and other incidents like it have done significant damage to Biden’s candidacy. And you can be sure that Democrats are in a panic about this and many other aspects of Biden like his defense of segregationist US senators.
Biden would also lose in a landslide running against president Trump who would tear him apart as a doddering old man. He already has done so.
Democrats are heading for trouble if they nominate a hard-leftist like Warren or Harris. We have seen this same movie before. In 1972 Democrats nominated a far-left candidate, US senator George McGovern of South Dakota, to run against sitting Republican president Richard Nixon whom the media hated like they hate Trump. Democrats were warned by party leaders not to pick McGovern but the voters spoke. And McGovern lost in a 49-state landslide.
We have much the same situation today. We have a successful sitting president in Donald Trump. He is seen as a strong leader, both on the economy and on foreign policy. His job approval numbers are rising steadily even as the Fake News media rhetorically assault him every single day as they have done for four years already.
On the other hand Harris and Pocahontas are both far-left activists with no proven record of leadership. They think that the nation is going to the hard left along with them. It is not.
Trump would easily defeat Harris or ‘Pocahontas’ since he would not be afraid to point out their radicalism, particularly on immigration. This is what separates president Trump from many other presidents and candidates – he is totally unafraid to defend his political turf. He is a tough guy. He plays to win unlike John McCain and Mitt Romney.
This president is on fire. More and more Democrats are admitting that he will be hard to beat in 2020. There will never be another president like him unless his son Don Jr. wins the White House, which he very well could.
So let us look at ‘Pocahontas’ and Harris as candidates. They both hold largely the same views. So in the interest of brevity Nikitas3.com will consider the policy positions of Elizabeth Warren, whom we know favors open borders like Harris does, along with health coverage for illegal immigrants. These positions alone would kill both of their chances against president Trump.
Here are Warren’s other policy positions from Slate.com with a Nikitas3.com comment after each:
Slate.com reports: The “Ultra-Millionaire” Tax – Warren wants Congress to create a new 2 percent annual tax on household wealth—including stocks, real estate, and retirement funds—above $50 million, and an additional 1 percent surtax on any household with a net worth over $1 billion. The plan also calls for increased spending at the IRS to enforce the tax, and an additional “exit tax” on anyone who renounced their U.S. citizenship to avoid the tax. According to her campaign, the plan would affect about 75,000 households—or about 1 out of every 1,700 American families—and raise $2.75 trillion in tax revenue over a decade.
Nikitas3.com comment: Rich people already pay a huge percentage of the US tax burden. History has shown that the more that “the rich” are taxed, the worse the economy gets. Nikitas3.com wouldn’t mind seeing “the rich” taxed heavily since most of them are Democrats. But it would be bad for the economy.
Slate.com reports: Taxing Corporate Profits – Warren wants Congress to levy a new tax to prevent profitable companies from using existing tax loopholes to avoid paying federal taxes. Under the plan, corporations would pay a new 7 percent tax on every dollar over $100 million in profits they report to shareholders, in addition to whatever they would owe the federal government under the existing corporate income tax. The campaign estimates the new tax would apply to roughly 1,200 companies and bring in $1 trillion over 10 years.
Nikitas3.com comment: Taxing business heavily slows down the economy; it has been proven throughout history. That is why the economy is doing so well under president Trump’s lower-tax policies.
Slate.com reports: Holding Corporate Executives Accountable – Warren wants Congress to make it easier for federal prosecutors to charge executives of large firms that act illegally, regardless of whether the officials personally signed off on the action in question. According to her campaign, the threat of prison time would motivate the executives to actively root out wrongdoing that they otherwise would benefit from.
Nikitas3.com comment: Yes, the executives at Google, Twitter and Facebook all need to be investigated and have their companies broken up for their censorship of free speech. But Democrats will never do that since they are liberal companies.
Slate.com reports: Making Public College Free – Warren wants to make undergraduate education free at public colleges and universities, to beef up Pell and other federal grants to help students cover non-tuition expenses, and to create a $50 billion fund to support historically black colleges and universities.
Nikitas3.com comment: This proposal would flood those colleges with students and cause chaos.
Slate.com reports: Forgiving Student Debt – Warren wants to wipe out up to $50,000 in student debt for anyone with a household income of less than $100,000. The amount of debt forgiven would gradually decrease for those making more than $100,000, with those making more than $250,000 excluded from the plan.
Nikitas3.com comment: Why do we only want to wipe out the debt of college graduates? How about everyone else with a lot of debt? This proposal is geared to “buy off” millions of young people. It is totally unfair.
Slate.com reports: Providing Universal Child Care – Warren wants to create a network of government-funded care centers.
Nikitas3.com comment: ‘Universal child care’ used to be called “mothers” and “fathers” and “parents” until Democrats spent 50 years destroying the nuclear family. We should not give universal child care a penny in funding. We need to encourage the family structure to make children’s lives better.
Slate.com reports: Increasing Affordable Housing – Warren wants to spend $500 billion over 10 years to build, preserve, and rehab millions of units that will be affordable to lower-income families and to address ongoing housing segregation. The plan would offer down-payment assistance to two groups in particular: black borrowers, who have historically been the victims of redlining, and families who were hit hardest by the last housing crisis.
Nikitas3.com comment: The best way to bring down housing costs is to build more housing. But very liberal places like New York City and California have endless regulations and zoning laws that thwart new housing.
Meanwhile the down-payment assistance proposal for black borrowers is a very dangerous idea. When trillions in loans to black borrowers went belly-up it caused the 2008 financial collapse. Naturally Warren wants a replay so that she can blame Trump and Republicans.
Slate.com reports: Addressing the Nation’s Opioid Crisis – Warren wants to spend $100 billion over 10 years to combat the epidemic, a plan that includes changes to Medicaid and increasing access to medication-assisted treatment.
Nikitas3.com comment: Oh, sure. More money. The first and best thing to do to address this crisis is to seal the Mexican border with a wall to stop illegal drugs like heroin and fentanyl from coming into the country.
Slate.com reports: Breaking Up Big Ag – Warren wants to curb consolidation in the agribusiness industry—specifically at giants like Tyson, DowDuPont, and Bayer-Monsanto. The plan would rewrite antitrust rules to make mergers more difficult, include a national right-to-repair law that allows farmers to repair their farm equipment without having to go to an authorized agent, and establish a mandatory country-of-origin label for beef and pork.
Nikitas3.com comment: Big agricultural companies are giving us inexpensive and abundant food. Naturally Democrats want to end this and get us all on food stamps when food prices go way up.
Slate.com reports: Getting Rid of the Electoral College – Warren wants to replace the Electoral College and have the national popular vote decide the general election.
Nikitas3.com comment: The Electoral College has served our nation well for more than 220 years. It is there for a reason. Democrats want to get rid of it because they lost the 2016 election based on the Electoral College. This is typical of how Democrats want to get rid of anything that impedes their power. We should stick with the Electoral College.
