    Here at RPF, we don't promote every conspiracy theory - merely the ones we've been made aware of. If there's anything that Ron Paul followers know, it's that bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces acting in concert and in secret to make them happen.

    Ummm.. Are you trolling us, Brian4Liberty?

    He's a Progressive Democrat.


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F...ical_positions


    Political positions


    Fetterman is often described as a social and fiscal progressive, including by himself.[5][91] When running for Senate in 2022, Fetterman said that he is not a progressive and is "just a Democrat".[92] In 2022, The New York Times characterized Fetterman as "left-leaning".[93]

    Abortion rights

    At a debate, Fetterman said regarding abortion: "That is between a woman and her physician". To the question if any exceptions exist, he said:"It’s certainly not between me or any politician. We settled this decades ago, and the fact that these states are trying to repeal it... we have to push back on that." His campaign stated: "Let's be clear: The right to an abortion is sacred. Democrats have to act quickly and get rid of the filibuster to pass the Women's Health Protection Act + finally codify Roe into law. We cannot afford to wait."[94][non-primary source needed]

    Criminal justice reform

    Prison reform is one of Fetterman's signature issues, advocating for more rehabilitation action as well as clemency for model prisoners. A part of his role as lieutenant governor, he serves as the chair of Pennsylvania's Board of Pardons, which processes clemency requests and forwards them to the governor. Fetterman urged the board to process requests more quickly.[95]

    Fetterman is in favor of abolishing capital punishment in Pennsylvania, stating that he "wholly support[s] Governor Tom Wolf's moratorium on the death penalty". He has called the death penalty "inhumane, antiquated, expensive, and [a] flawed system of punishment".[96]

    Environmental issues

    Previously, Fetterman opposed fracking calling the practice "an environmental abomination".[97] However, he has since shifted his stance on the issue saying that he supports permitting fracking, although he advocates for stricter environmental regulations.[95] Fetterman says there needs to be a balance between decarbonization efforts and creating jobs in the fossil fuel industry. While running for lieutenant governor, Fetterman voiced his support for establishing two new fracking wells.[32] In 2021, Fetterman said that he supports moving towards a "de facto moratorium [on fracking] because the transition is going to be toward green and renewable energy".[98] Fetterman opposes the Green New Deal.[97]

    Filibuster

    Fetterman supports ending the filibuster in the United States Senate.[99] He has also said that Democrats need to be more ruthless, like Republicans, in order to pass legislative priorities.[100]

    Foreign policy

    In 2015, The Patriot-News described Fetterman as a "skeptic of free trade", given his opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and a non-interventionist. Fetterman has said that the United States should not "be considered the world's police officers".[9]

    Gun policy

    Fetterman supports greater restrictions upon the process to buy a gun including universal background checks and the ending of loopholes that allow for the mentally ill and domestic abusers to purchase firearms.[101]

    Healthcare

    Fetterman has previously described himself as a supporter of Medicare for All, saying that healthcare is a "fundamental human need and right".[91] In 2022, Fetterman avoided the term Medicare for All and stated that "Healthcare is a fundamental human right,"[102] and that he would "support whatever path" is necessary to expand healthcare accessibility including the expansion of Obamacare.[103] In debate he still says he will vote yes for Medicare for All.[104]

    Israel

    Fetterman is a strong supporter of Israel–United States relations and said if he is elected as a U.S. senator, he will "lean in" on the "relationship between the United States and Israel". He said that the U.S.–Israel relationship "is a special one that needs to be safeguarded, protected, supported and nurtured through legislation and all available diplomatic efforts in the region". He supports United States foreign aid to Israel, including Iron Dome funding. Fetterman criticized Congressional Democrats who voted against Iron Dome funding, calling them "fringe" and "extreme". Fetterman has said he supports the right of Israel to defend itself and is "passionate" in his opposition to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. He supported a law signed into law by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf that barred Pennsylvania from entering into contracts with companies that boycott Israel. He supports a two state solution and the expansion of the Abraham Accords, the Arab-Israeli agreements brokered under the Trump administration.[105]

    Marijuana

    Fetterman is a proponent of legalizing marijuana, calling the issue a "political bazooka" and that leaving the issue alone is giving an opportunity for another party to gain political support for a pro–marijuana legalization agenda. He argued that if conservative South Dakota voters were willing to approve a ballot measure legalizing recreational marijuana, Pennsylvania should legalize it too.[106] He also supports expunging criminal convictions related to marijuana.[107]

    Minimum wage

    Fetterman supports raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.[91]

    Policing

    Fetterman has described himself as "pro-policing", including pro-community policing. He opposes defunding the police, calling the movement "absurd".[97] As lieutenant governor, Fetterman supported legislation that would only allow the police to use deadly force in situations where officers or others nearby face imminent threat of death or serious injury.[108]

    Taxation

    Fetterman supports implementing a wealth tax in the United States.[109] He has stated "you know it when you see it..." and has said those "who have yachts" could be used as a potential benchmark.[110]

    But look at his positions. He’s practically a (left) libertarian.

    Wikipedia can be biased, especially in this case. Wouldn’t trust any of this.

    Environmental issues

    Previously, Fetterman opposed fracking calling the practice "an environmental abomination".[97] However, he has since shifted his stance on the issue saying that he supports permitting fracking, although he advocates for stricter environmental regulations.[95] Fetterman says there needs to be a balance between decarbonization efforts and creating jobs in the fossil fuel industry.

    Opposes the Green New Deal? Really?

    Foreign policy

    In 2015, The Patriot-News described Fetterman as a "skeptic of free trade", given his opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and a non-interventionist. Fetterman has said that the United States should not "be considered the world's police officers".
    Wow. He’s Ron Paul!

    Israel

    Fetterman is a strong supporter of Israel–United States relations and said if he is elected as a U.S. senator, he will "lean in" on the "relationship between the United States and Israel". He said that the U.S.–Israel relationship "is a special one that needs to be safeguarded, protected, supported and nurtured through legislation and all available diplomatic efforts in the region".

    Well, now we know why the media is backing him, and the money is flowing into Pennsylvania to push him and attack Dr. Oz.

    Marijuana

    Fetterman is a proponent of legalizing marijuana, calling the issue a "political bazooka" and that leaving the issue alone is giving an opportunity for another party to gain political support for a pro–marijuana legalization agenda.

    This is absolutely brilliant!

    Fetterman should team up with Dan Crenshaw.

    Fetterman/Crenshaw in 2024 on the Democrat ticket.

    Crenshaw/Fetterman in 2024 on the Republican ticket.

    My take on Joe Fetterman...

    He’s a 100% phony. A Soros minion employing the lie, cheat and steal method of getting elected. He is also using the Joe Biden method of hiding before the election. He would be the AOC of the Senate.

    I'd wager they are aiming for the social conservatives. Everything seems to be an attempt to funnel division on that.

    "Don't worry about inflation, cronyism, corruption, big government, totalitarianism, war, etc., look over there! What you really need to focus on is abortion, gender identity, sexuality, whites v. their victims, and drugs!"

    At some point in time I kind of liked the guy at least as a mayor where it's harder to really implement much socialism. But it seems like he's just sold his soul to the national DNC, Israel, etc. not like his spending policies would work well at a national level anyway.
    The enemy of my enemy may be worse than my enemy.

    I do not suffer from Trump Rearrangement Syndrome. Sorry if that triggers you.
