    Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) further angered the far-left-wing of the Democrat Party this week after declaring that he was not a progressive Democrat.

    Democrat activists have largely not been happy with Fetterman over the last two months because of his strong support for Israel following Hamas' terror attacks on October 7. He has also repeatedly called on Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) to be expelled from the Senate after he was charged in an alleged bribery scheme to act on behalf of Egypt.

    "I'm not a progressive," Fetterman told NBC News. "I just think I'm a Democrat that is very committed to choice and other things. But with Israel, I'm going to be on the right side of that. And immigration is something near and dear to me, and I think we do have to effectively address it as well."

    He said that he was pro-immigration but favored policies that restricted the flow of how many migrants are allowed in the U.S.

    Speaking about ongoing negotiations to fix the crisis at the U.S. southern border, which has been in dire conditions throughout the Biden administration, Fetterman said: "It's a reasonable conversation - until somebody can say there's an explanation on what we can do when 270,000 people are being encountered on the border, not including the ones, of course, that we don't know about."

    "To put that in reference, that is essentially the size of Pittsburgh, the second-largest city in Pennsylvania," he said.

    He said that it was "not ideal" for the border and immigration issue to get attached to aid packages for Ukraine and Israel but said that it needed to happen because Republicans were forcing the issue.

    "Progressives better do that because we can't leave Israel - we can't sell them out, and we can't sell Ukraine out, and we have to deliver on this," Fetterman said. "I just would very much like to get a deal to deliver this critical aid."

    In the interview he kept up his attacks on Menendez, saying that "he needs to go."

    "I don't understand why he can be here, having expelled Santos," he said. "But I'm sure there might be a very innocent explanation of having gold bars in your mattress and overstuffed envelopes of cash."

    Some of the responses that Fetterman received online from the far-left included:

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

poll#163
The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Yes
  No
  Not sure
