The List Rev ADr. Gorka was essentially a Steve Bannon employee in the administration; Gorka reported to Bannon, and Gorka took instructions from Bannon. With General Kelly creating a formal chain of contact and message discipline within the White House; and with Gorka’s boss having resigned a week ago; it was entirely predictable that Gorka would leave.

Good ole chucky shoemer, typical Marxist telling everyone what they want to hear. After they got the steering wheel then the religion begins, and then you get to have stuff taken away. And there are fools that support these evil liars.

Civil War: The Left Is Not Happy That Dianne Feinstein Is Running For Re-Election

The List Rev ASen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is running for re-election. After weeks of speculation, the California Democrat decided to come out of the bunker and announce her plans to run for anther term yesterday. The progressive Left is not happy about it. In fact, their reception has been ice cold. While Feinstein hails from deep blue California, she’s somewhat more centrist than where the progressive base is heading. Vox had a decent rundown of the situation on the ground. There is a question about whether the vocal left wing of the Democratic Party can oust an entrenched Democratic incumbent, like Feinstein. Bernie Sanders tried to boot Hillary Clinton; he lost:
Critics say Feinstein is staying on as a leader when her policies come from a previous time in the Democratic Party. "Her policies are completely out of touch with California Democrats, and we think she'd be more at home in a Republican primary,” said Corbin Trent of the Bernie Sanders-inspired group Justice Democrats, vowing to back a primary challenger. “Safe Democratic seats are the place we should be representing core Democratic values.”
Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who has backed Justice Democrats, called Feinstein “out of touch with the grassroots” on economic and foreign policy. “The fact that the establishment is rallying around her re-election shows that DC insiders continue to privilege protecting one of their own over the voters' concerns,” added Khanna, who emphasized he is not considering a run for the seat.
But it’s far from clear if the left has the political muscle to topple the long-serving Democratic senator.
