The California Democratic Party on Saturday endorsed U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s challenger, highlighting the moderate lawmaker’s political disconnect with liberal activists in her home state.

Bravo. Bravo. Democrats. I guess Feinstein was too conservative for you.

You never cease to amaze me.

Probably had something to do with her being 85 years old.
They haven't had much luck with old ladies lately...

Well of course Pavil! De Leon hopped on the trendy "abolish ICE" train, so Cali HAS to show their support if they want to remain the pioneers in senseless, harmful legislation.

Because Trump.

Ole Kevin is even too lazy to legally change his name from Kevin Leon to the name he is using Kevin De Leon! HA!

Wantsto do away with the border an activist for the teachers union and want's the 2nd done away with. At least he pretty much supports all of the Marxist keystones where as Feinstien did as well but denied it.....

Meh, he's the same gun control nut she is. Add a dash of 'sanctuarism', a pinch of anti-border control, and the Dems in California won't miss Diane one bit.

They're just passing the lunatic torch.

That's what happens when you unleash the krakens, consequences be damned, because you can't get over your butt hurt for losing an election.

2018 and 2020 won't be so much about how the right performs, but rather how divided the left will be. Mark my words.

Surprised they did not go the Socialist route so as to not be outdone by NY.

I imagine tea is racist, and clearly the men involved in the original tea party are racist. Chimichanga party maybe. Those are delicious.

Pretty pathetic over all. The Dems are actually against abolishing ICE when it comes right down to it. But again more telling, is their grand standing and hypocrisy.

For the first time in years, House Democrats are getting the chance to vote on a Democrat-sponsored immigration bill — and they are planning to vote against it.

House Republican leaders said they would bring up a vote for a contentious “Abolish ICE” bill proposed by three progressive Democrats — Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) — knowing it would put the minority party in a difficult position. Republicans know Abolish ICE is divisive for Democrats, so they’re taking the most left-wing proposal out there and putting it up for a vote.

Progressive Democrats never thought their messaging bill, which would have disbanded Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency within a year, would make it to the floor. They didn’t try to build a coalition around it or even reach out to parts of the Democratic conference, Jayapal said. Now, they are trying to find a way to match Republican gamesmanship.


***SNIP***

The debate around whether to vote for this bill is an early test of the Democratic Party’s increasingly left-leaning policy platform — and so far, Democratic lawmakers are splintering on the issue. The majority of Americans oppose eliminating ICE and for now, Democrats seem like they will unify against the bill.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus has already come out against the proposal, and the progressive lawmakers who wrote the bill have said they won’t vote in favor of it, instead using the floor time to make public statements on Trump’s immigration policy.

“We force that conversation, we take that hour, we have that conversation and then we’ll all vote no on it, because we’re all clear that it’s not a serious attempt to do anything,” Jayapal said.

Maybe this will wake Feinstein up? Maybe this will get her to stop playing patrician games. Vote for Trumps Supreme Court nomination. Stop slandering ICE.

She will lose the far left but could keep the mainstream left, independents, and some liberal republicans and keenher seat

Vote against a bill you proposed. I wouldn't believe it if it were a script for a movie. How completely stupid are these people? Rhetorical question.

I totally agree. Now and when Mitch McConnell did the same thing in the Senate. Filibustering his own bill. You guys want to keep saying it's only one side, but it ain't.

It's been obvious to me for over 20 years the globalist swamp creatures swim on both sides of the swamp. Not surprised by the stupidity on either side. Not sure it's really sides when they all seem to be playing for the same globalist team.

I think they recycle their blood with the blood of people much younger. It keeps them fitter.
