Radical Left



We’re less than two weeks out from the November 8th midterm elections, and the Left is doubling down in major Senate and congressional races that could upset the balance of power in Washington. 

Last night, candidates Dr. Mehmet Oz and John Fetterman debated in the race for the open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. The outcome of even just this one election could have a major impact on the 2024 presidential race. That is one reason this state election is garnering such national media attention.

Of course, another reason is Fetterman’s cognitive abilities after he suffered a debilitating stroke. Our hearts go out to him and his family, but the bottom line is he did not perform well in the debate. He seemed unable to have a discussion, even of his own questions to his opponent. What we already knew going into this debate however is that Fetterman is a far-Left liberal. But when asked questions, his answers were short and unnuanced, whereas Dr. Oz handled himself professionally and compassionately and just addressed the issues.

And it seems clear the Left knows Fetterman did not win the debate by any stretch of the imagination. But they’re already trying to spin the debate; making excuses, blaming the equipment, and downplaying his cognitive issues.

My dad, ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, eviscerated the Left’s attempts to gaslight the American people: 

To see how the world has changed in twenty-four months, not even, is mind-boggling. . . . A bottle of ketchup is eight dollars. I mean the American family is really struggling on this. And then you look at the border, . . . and you’ve got literally dozens of terrorists being picked up on the watchlist. And the reaction of the Biden Administration is whatever you all were doing, do the opposite. But the American people are realizing the opposite is not working.

It’s true. The American people can see what’s really going on with their own eyes. And they know that the radical Left’s agenda is an attack on America’s founding principles.

ACLJ Senior Counsel for Global Affairs and former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has a new Op-Ed on ACLJ.org warning about how the Biden Administration is crushing the American family. And Sec. Pompeo pointed out that while the ACLJ is constantly fighting for the rights of American families, President Biden and the Left have all seemed to have completely lost touch with ordinary Americans and their legitimate concerns, even concerned parents at school board meetings:

First, they locked the kids out of school. And then they want to lock the parents up for trying to fix what’s going on in the schools. It’s literally the case that you had moms and grandpas going to school board meetings saying you can’t put this stuff in our kid’s library. You can’t teach our kids that America is a racist nation. Simple ideas that were accepted across a broad range of the political spectrum for decades in America. And the radical Left, the extremist Left, has moved us so far from that. And then you have a Justice Department and FBI declaring that these parents who go to these school board meetings may well be white supremacist domestic terrorists. This is dangerous. It’s deeply inconsistent with America and its founding.

Folks, we’re always saying it. Elections have consequences. We’ve got a big one barreling down on us in just 13 days.

Today’s full Sekulow broadcast includes further in-depth discussion with ACLJ Senior Counsel Mike Pompeo, as well as Senator Marsha Blackburn (TN) who joined us to discuss how the Biden Administration’s incompetence is hurting Americans, even when it comes to traditionally cheaper purchases like buying candy to hand out on Halloween. How have we gotten to a place where parents need second jobs to buy candy for trick-or-treaters?
