Great Reset: Radical Global Economic Transformation

Introducing the ‘Great Reset,’ world leaders’ radical plan to transform the economy

By Justin Haskins, Opinion Contributor — The Hill — 06/25/20

For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.

At a virtual meeting earlier in June hosted by the World Economic Forum, some of the planet’s most powerful business leaders, government officials and activists announced a proposal to “reset” the global economy. Instead of traditional capitalism, the high-profile group said the world should adopt more socialistic policies, such as wealth taxes, additional regulations and massive Green New Deal-like government programs.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

Schwab also said that “all aspects of our societies and economies” must be “revamped,” “from education to social contracts and working conditions.”

Joining Schwab at the WEF event was Prince Charles, one of the primary proponents of the Great Reset; …./

And may I just say that somewhere out there is is a giant middle finger to you from millions of people. Not that you really care!

Storybook Economy

I will not link directly to the article in Politico saying that Wall Street is getting absolutely giddy about a Biden presidency. Put some more lipstick on that pig.

We should have seen that one coming even if it makes no sense. (maybe cents was the correct term?) Political biases, especially these days, are very insidious and often void of common sense. But one like this cries out for simplicity.

So then, what they are actually saying is that Marxists and socialists (i.e. communists) can run the economy — and government — better and more efficiently.

Does anyone really believe that?

They have evidently found ways to rationalize how Biden would be good for them or their bottom lines. I don’t know exactly how but if one of them was to remove responsibility from the equation, it might be one way of seeing it optimistically. But if they are thinking Marxist control is going to be a great thing for them, the economy, or country, then it also puts them on the ideological opposite side of the people.

“Far from panicking at the prospect of a Biden win, Wall Street CEOs, traders and investment managers now mostly say they would be fine with a change in the White House that reduces the Trump noise, lowers the threat of further trade wars and ensures a continuation of the government spending they’ve seen in recent years. “

Now they can say that if Joe won it would mean the people support such Marxist or socialist ideas, but they would be wrong. Many in the Democrat Party over the last few years have been disgusted by this rush toward socialism. Some have pooh-poohed the Marxist criticique, I know. They are only deniers to where it all leads.

And the really sad thing about it is how fast it does take us into that socialism wormhole. Whoever thought that they would be running on an open plan of socialism in a national election? That would have seemed very brazen, even politically stupid, only a few short years ago. Not anymore.

It seems the street wants stability, despite whether it is a Marxist wave or not. But it would seem hard to rationalize that Marxism would be stability for the economy or markets. At what point then would they become queasy? It begs the question.

There’s a brand new talk but it’s not very clear“…

We are the goon squad
And we’re coming to town
Beep-beep

Settled Science

What is and isn’t settled science? Let’s dispel a couple of these popular faux arguments.

The science debate.

Take the left’s view: that there is no real debate here; that science rules; that it should be the basis of all actions. So science literally rules

Now that translates to science should dictate all decisions. For instance, on COVID or climate change, or anything else for that matter. It is the definitive answer to problems.

The logical side: no one is denying that science exists and it is useful. (that’s the defensive posture) When making decisions on society, many of those are out of the arena of science. Leaders and officials are making decisions on lockdowns and mandates on travel, or on what you can do and buy. What food you eat or car you drive. Is that science?

To say, like Joe Biden, that science declares you should shut down the economy, which is not an area of science, removes decisions from those tasked to make them. Plus “science”- whatever all it includes – is not accountable for those decisions and their consequences.

And people are elected or appointed to make those decisions on all the necessary variables. If it were true that science dictates, then there is no purpose for government or those officials but to enforce a science edict. Simply have science dictate decisions.

One of the first rules on any topic where science is injected is to ask if it is actually part of science or how much of it is? That tells you a lot. Most of it is far outside its realm.

For instance, much of this societal, cultural stuff we are lectured about is not an exact area of science. But that is where leftist social engineers come in. So their social engineers – presumably all leftists – will interpret their science into our society and lives, or into the code we must live by. When anyone resists their code, they hold up the science card. (just like they play the race card) But we are not governed by a board of science.

And if officials are going to issue these edicts, then they better be able to explain them and be accountable for them, because science won’t be. So it is not just science making these decisions, let’s be clear. Don’t hide behind science as if it were unquestionable.

The objective, the left tells us, is and always should be to control the pandemic. Except that controlling the pandemic equates to controlling people. That theorem means simply, you control the people and you control the pandemic.

Often when they tell us science is settled, they really mean their interpretation of science is settled. And it usually is not all science. Unless you mean political science.

Seen This Movie Before, Lousy Ending

There are things considered natural responses to human tragedies and pains, like empathy and compassion. Not all people may be so equipped in those areas. Some may be slower in response to it than others. Some may be incapable of those reactions.

But that was usually the general rule.

However, when a person is shot by a policeman, why is the instant response looting and rioting? What causes that because apparently it is a cause and effect scenario? It has become a downright phenomena. A black person is shot in the course of enforcing the law and the knee-jerk reaction is looting and destroying businesses that have nothing at all to do with the act. They go from claiming an innocent victim to creating innocent victims.

But somehow this rioting and looting is to go on, unobstructed as can be allowed. Where is this in the Constitution or in any rules for a functional society? I haven’t found them yet. Though this has become the normal, typical reaction to the events. It also seems to be organized in moments. Within hours, caravans of cars come in heading for the high value stores as mobs of people do the rest, to carry out out an organized pilfering process. They cart off any merchandise and disappear into the streets from where they came.

Daily Mail:

‘We’re coming for you’: Mayor Lightfoot’s warning to looters who ransacked Chicago in night of ‘straight-up criminality’ that saw 100 arrests and 13 cops injured

    • Chicago’s Magnificent Mile was hit by looters after hundreds of demonstrators clashed with police
    • It was triggered by a shooting earlier in the day and an armed suspect was wounded by police
    • The man had opened fire on cops and they returned; he was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive
    • Crowds however gathered in protest after false information spread that the officers shot a child
    • People then started organizing on Twitter and Facebook to loot downtown in a caravan of vehicles
    • By the time police caught up with them, they’d started ransacking stores, snatching all that they could
    • 400 cops were dispatched to the area but they faced intense violence including, in some cases, gunfire
    • On Monday morning, the chaos was still ongoing as officers arrested people who were still inside stores
    • Bridges were raised and tunnels closed for police to try to get a handle on the escalating tensions
    • It coincided with the sixth anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri
    • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the looting had nothing to do with peaceful protest over police brutality
    • She warned the protesters that police were already scanning HD security footage to identify and arrest looters, saying: ‘We are coming for you’
    • Lightfoot said the city does not need the National Guard’s help; Trump is yet to comment but on Monday he urged Portland to accept federal assistance after a riot was declared

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot warned looters who ransacked the city that they are already being hunted by police who are reviewing HD security camera footage from the chaos which saw more than 100 arrests, attacks on 13 police officers and widespread unrest.

    The chaos began on Sunday afternoon when police responded to Englewood where there had been complaints of a man with a gun. The suspect has not been named but was described by police on Monday as a 20-year-old man with a criminal history that includes charges of burglary, child endangerment and assault and battery.

    When officers arrived at the scene, he began running and opened fire on them as they pursued him. The cops returned fire, wounding him, and arrested him. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

See: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8611143/Another-night-violence-Looting-breaks-Chicagos-Magnificent-Mile.html

Despite what she says, what makes this time any different than other times where she did nothing or little in response to crimes and shootings? Every weekend there are drive-byes and shootings, some victims are children and toddlers, yet she does nothing. Now she says: attention criminals, “we’re coming for you!”

The renowned expert, AOC, said weeks ago that some of this crime wave is because people may have to go out and steal a morsel of bread for their family to survive on. As if the person has no other choice. It was crazy talk when she said it but now, once again, we see the same reactions playing out over another shooting by police of a black man in Chicago. No one cares what led up to it, or the reason for it; it only turns into another lucrative looting opportunity. Except they aren’t stealing bread, baby formula and diapers.

Daily Mail:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has suggested the rise in crime in New York City is because ‘desperate’ people are ‘stealing bread to feed their children’.

Police data shows that shootings in the city last month were up 130 per cent year on the year – from 89 shootings last year to 205 this year.

But Cortez asked: ‘Do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the United States right now?”

The Hill reported:

AOC on increased NYC crime: “Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent & are scared to pay their rent & so they go out & they need to feed their child & they don’t have money so… they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry.”

So there you have it. Apparently those people in Chicago are just shoplifting some bread to feed their family. Let’s see if they can explain this latest looting frenzy. Cleanup in isle #1.

Still it is a phenomena, I tell you.

Gee, I wonder if AOC has ever felt any empathy or compassion for people struggling to make ends meet while paying their exorbitant taxes, and just trying to survive? Nah.

Changing Times

There is a whole series of things that don’t add up, or make sense, in the way they used to.

We are now told by Democrats that the schools are not safe for our children.
Further, they tell us parents should refuse to send them to protect them.

In a local exercise in one town, the kids created a mural. Part of the design process in developing it asked each child to name one thing they hoped for. A fourth-grader said safety and security. Another older kid explained he hoped for a safer community, so they would not be afraid to walk the streets and just feel secure. And those two kids happened to be black. See any themes there?

That security could take some policing. But look at the defunding-abolishing police plans. How does that help? Wait a minute, police do not make the community unsafe. Yet we need to do away with them. How will that make us more safe and secure?

In fact, if safety and security are on the minds of kids, let’s also take cops or security guards out of the schools. That should make kids feel better and safer.

Schools are too unsafe and risky. But joining thousands of unknown, random protestors in the streets is encouraged. Peaceful protest is lighting buildings on fire; going to church threatens the community. Rioting is exempt from rules — for the good of the country.

Splitting up people walking on a beach is necessary, while marching shoulder to shoulder in the streets with protestors is protected and sanctified.

It used to be people stood at attention for the national anthem. But kneeling is now protocol. The flag and anthem used to be a symbol of pride, honor and respect — not the object of disdain. The flag is triggering. Kneeling at the flag or anthem used to be a form of protest, but today that is the symbol of conformity. Standing at attention is now protest.

Demand the economy be shutdown and remain closed, then complain about the unemployment rate and economy. How’s that make any sense?

You cannot risk going out to vote… but get out there and protest.

Let’s not forget protecting vulnerable nursing homes by forcing COVID-19 into them. That protects thousands of lives. Then blame nursing homes who were forced to take them.

In other news, Beijing Biden is all about creating jobs by destroying them in mass. That is called a progressive economic plan.

Malicious Intent Of Radicals

I will try to make this brief to the important point. There has been a lot of radical activity lately, what with protests, counter protests, antifa, rioting, doxxing, violence and the like. Most of it carries a pernicious theme. It is almost too much to take in at once.

However, we have some typical reactions to it, along with desensitizing ourselves to it all. We have mob behavior and then we have the reactions to it from Democrats. Enough has been said about Democrats sympathies toward Marxist radicals. They just can’t help themselves from aligning with radicals’ goals and agenda. You know birds of the feather.

But something else comes through, best exemplified in a recent comment from Judge Jeanine on her show. She was talking about all this and referred to the elected officials in Seattle saying “what are you stupid?” It would be easier if we could write all this off as Democrats’ stupidity in how they respond to lawless radical activity of the Left.

We can no longer afford to be that naïve to call them stupid. In many or most cases, they do know what they are doing. And often they have reasons for it . Those reasons are malicious in themselves. Democrats come out of the same radicalism that spawns these protests and riots. Civil disobedience is only a means. But it is way past “civil disobedience.” It is lawlessness.

Now contrast that all with what we see happening on a daily basis. Often the elected and Democrats appear to operate in concert with the thugs – or at least do things to encourage, enable or sympathize with them. This is not by accident.

See the problem is we want to attribute what officials do as being stupid. What if it isn’t? What if it all is intentional? Now that is the only way the whole thing makes sense. In other words, if they know exactly what they are doing. If so, then officials operate collaboratively. Why should we ignore the obvious or pretend otherwise? Because we don’t want to admit the real malicious intent behind what these elected officials are doing. But haven’t we seen enough to have our worst fears validated? I think we have.

Dan Bongino began posing such a question about the mayor of NYC, Bill De Blasio. (real name Warren Wilhelm Jr.) About all the stuff he is doing that harms NYC, he asked, what would someone do differently if they wanted to destroy the city? Nothing, he says. So they would do nothing differently if they intentionally wanted to destroy the city. Get it?

Everyone needs to ask themselves the question if he/she is one of those being naïve about motivations of these radicals? With radicals, it doesn’t matter much whether they are on the street or in government somewhere, same difference. They are serving the same ends.

It can be traced back to Obama politicizing government. So it doesn’t matter whether you are serving in it or outside protesting it. Both sides share the same aspirations. And that radical ideology (for lack of other word) is the same that drives the actions of both.

The real question then is why would we attribute ignorance or stupidity to leftists when they are quite aware of what they are doing, and the consequences of it? Seems pointless.

A current example: the husband and wife in St. Louis, Missouri who defended themselves by bearing arms outside their residence to a mob of protestors, threatening the homeowners on their own property. The prosecutor charged them for threatening “peaceful” protestors.

Judge Napolitano on Fox noted that both husband and wife are lawyers. He said maybe the Soros-funded prosecutor had not considered the charges she placed on them could affect their ability to practice law? But no, no! What if she knew and realized that? Additional harm to her targets? You see, it starts to make sense when you apply reasoning.

Why else would radicals do what they do but to cause intentional harm to their political opponents? It’s the only way it makes sense. Maybe wider damage is the whole purpose.

Another thing we must consider is that reform is antithetical to these radicals. Actually, the last thing they want is reform, in the end, if their real intent is to tear down the entire system. Reform is a much slower way to get to their goals. But they would even use reform (or abuse any reform process) to get their real goals, though that takes work.

In this way, it makes these people part of a larger insurrection hell bent on taking down our government and economic system to replace it with another, Marxist, socialistic system. Even socialism light is not enough for these people. Reform is way too moderate for them. They are more the hard-line Leftists, Marxists of the European flavor.

Closing argument.

Fox news host Tucker Carlson was a target of Leftist attacks and boycotts in the past. His home was vandalized and attacked, repeatedly, and he and his family were threatened. So finally he moved his family and voila, NYT has a piece in the breach to publish (doxx) his new location. Notice how intentional it all is to cause as much harm and inflict as much pain as they can. Ignorance? Not a chance. The Only thing remaining is malicious intent.

So what if we mis-attribute ignorant, naive intentions to Dems they don’t have or deserve? Now who is being stupid if we do that? So is there something wrong with instinctive reactions that play down the malicious objectives of radicals’ actions? Yes, sure is.

And to fight them, we should understand their motives. But we miss that mark when we attribute stupidity, ignorance, or naivete to their motivations. Can we just accept it?

So why would we want to disarm ourselves?
The only obvious question left then is: ‘are we serial deniers?’

Enemy Within, Game On

Ilhan Omar Calls for the Dismantling of the US economy, political system.

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. economy and political system Tuesday.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Omar held an event Tuesday in her home state of Minnesota with members of the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus. Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was to address “racism in policing” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death..

Omar has joined calls from local Democratic leaders to defund the police after four Minneapolis police officers were fired and charged in connection to Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to get rid of the city’s police department in June.

More> https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/07/ilhan-omar-calls-for-the-dismantling-of-us-economy-political-system/

First it was abolish ICE, then it was abolish police, Then it was the economy, get rid of it. Okay, so let’s just dismantle the whole US system? So she is making it completely obvious, she is against our entire system.

Come here as a refugee from Somalia, and then proceed to tell us our entire system is oppressive — after becoming a US Congressperson — and needs to be torn down.

 

For your reading pleasure, here is what Trump said about her just 2 weeks ago:

Washington Examiner

“Ilhan Omar is going to be very much involved in a Biden government. They will put this hate-filled, America-bashing socialist front and center in deciding the fate of your family and deciding the fate of your country. I don’t think so.”

“She would like to make the government of our country just like the country from where she came. Somalia.”

“No government, no safety, no police. No nothing. Just anarchy. And now, she’s telling us how to run our country. No, thank you,” Trump said.

Oops, right again! Yet he was roundly attacked for what he said. Give me a break!

Come Back

A lot of good news came out Friday and the unemployment did not hit the magical 20% all the analysts and media predicted, or privately hoped for.

In fact, 2.5 million jobs in May were added and the unemployment rate dropped to 13.3%. Not quite the harbinger of doom forecast. Well, now the panic on the Left starts.

On other fronts, NY Gov Cuomo continues to give daily updates on the state of pandemic in NY. He also uses the platform to delve into every new national event. The latest being the protests and riots that swept through NYC as the pandemic declined.

Interesting though how he sticks to his analogy. He has worn it out describing a valve and series of gauges as he, like some madman, is authoritatively posted at the controls. Despite repetition, he says he is loosening it as he watches the gauges. It may be boring but what you have to do, he says, while adding “if metrics change that [valve] will change.”

After stretching the analogy to the max, one thing in all his scenarios remains a constant that his hand is always on the valve. So the message seems to be his hand never comes off the valve. One wonders if someone has to pry it out of his cold dead hands?

Media will have to develop a new narrative because things are not fitting into their current one. Once again, as weather improved so did the COVID virus numbers.

But what does not seem to improve is Democrats’greedy hand on the control panel and economy. They are fatally attracted and addicted to power.

Funny how there has not been any protests or marches over the nursing home deaths Cuomo and others caused. Where are they? Where is that national discussion?

But we see how many memorials were organized over the killing of George Floyd. He seemed to vacuum up public attention. Police did not stick COVID into nursing homes.

No true come back would be complete without a look at what happened as these Leftists had their hands all over the control valves in the nation’s economy, or how they mishandled the crisis of the virus.

No, there will be some major event popping up that will prevent any critical insight into that. No time for the damage done, they are off to opine on the next crisis. And in an election year you know there will be one, if they have to create it themselves.

A pity we never really come back from unbridled abuse of power.

Disconnected Reality

Some events are so big they cry out for context. Sometimes context is almost irrelevant. We like to crowd-source events with facts. Yet sometimes the events are just what they are; and collateral damage is just what it is.

Hodgepodge from the hood of my Dodge.

There are times I feel like I am only watching random events from the hood of my Dodge. Which is important, what I’m watching or where I’m watching it? I confess that sometimes it matters where I’m sitting. Though often you could sit anywhere.

Sometimes that doesn’t seem to matter at all – any seat is the same. It prompts the proverbial question: which is more important, what I see or my seat?

I say all that because of recent events. No one wants to see things in isolation or a vacuum. That’s why time and date stamps on photos matter. That’s why sequence or context can be important. And neither can history be ignored. I understand.

Take the COVID crisis for example. We began asking if the cure was worse than the disease? Many people came to the conclusion that the restrictions were far more hazardous than the national illness demanded. But that was after weeks of shutdown and self-isolation from the virus. You can still come to your own personal conclusion on that. You are welcome to consider all relevant information in doing so. And there is a lot of it.

President Trump makes a statement and the media goes nuts. So often the entire context makes a difference but they give that short shrift. On other things, they demand it be given some perverted context only they see and understand the significance of. Context is controversial to media.

Then a man is killed by a Minneapolis cop from a knee on his throat, in a video spread instantly that makes everyone gasp for air. The context too — like what did he do and what were all the other cops doing as he did it — matters. We all know and are appalled by it. The relevant facts indeed matter. So it prompts a national reaction and protests.

Major events can cause a reaction. Covid in nursing homes brought a reaction too, at least to anyone paying attention. Our collective stomachs are sickened, rightfully so. Did it matter whether by accident or that the governors forced COVID into them? Yes. Did it matter what he said after and the official reaction to it? You bet.

Did it also matter the reaction of people to the killing of George Floyd? Sure, it did. And there were immediate firings and a major investigation. Then they arrested the cop shortly after. Justice, it seemed, was on the heels of the cops. And everyone agreed it was horrible. What’s left to decide?

Flash forward, the protests start causing even more outrage as the riots and looting began. So which is worse the disease or the cure? Well it doesn’t take too much more time to come to another conclusion. Reality should matter, too.

What is happening, organized across the country, nationalized the killing of a black man. Everyone knows his name. It propels marches and an outpouring like no other. The “mad as hell” reaction rules.

Still there is the matter of rioting. By day they are just mild-mannered protestors, but by nightfall they turn into sinister, raging crowds of anarchists looting and torching buildings. Arson, as I recall, is not a form of protest.

For days on end it continued into wee hours of the morning with large crowds breaking windows and looting out stores, one by one. Each night a different neighborhood trashing and pillaging the cities as they went. Gangs of thugs ran the streets with bags of loot into cars shuttling them from one location to another. Police could hardly get a handle on it.

Did I neglect to mention that on the first night of rioting they burned a police precinct and descended on others? It all happened as we watched in outrage.

But meanwhile, the rioting, looting and burning continued undeterred, as if the protesting and marches were only a diversion for what was really going on…. organized chaos and destruction. Civil society was on the chopping block now and it was not faring too well. The National Guard was called.

The breaking and looting led to more organized breaking and looting in neighborhoods across America. The cause for it was only a distant memory. What mattered is what was happening now. Their anger and frenzy seemed romanticized by some in the media. The old saying came back as a ghost declaring, “the chickens have come home to roost.”

What is lost in it all? Start with the real victim, George Floyd. At a memorial service where Floyd’s brother painfully paid his respects at the scene where it happened, he asked the crowd “what are you doing?” Not in my name. It was not the first plea he made for protestors to stop the violence and looting.

That didn’t seem to matter as night fell when the violence and looting continued right on schedule. Almost as if it were two separate events, with two separate narratives, disconnected from each other on paths of their own.

But there are other victims, too. Lots of them. Businesses and property owners who had no say in it from the beginning. In fact, they had nothing at all to do with any of it. They are only disconnected victims of reality now. Collateral damage.

Even businesses are almost lost in the amount of damage being done. They are each but one store owner or business. They become lost in the totality by design. Who cares?

Never mind the context of those stores who had been shuttered for months taking it on the chin for a virus they had no control over and nothing at all to do with. They have become merely irrelevant collateral damage of the people disconnected from reality.

But reality is very real to them. Their lives and fortunes suffering from forces they have no say or control over. Who’s going to pay? Minneapolis seems such a long way away.

And in comes the merchants of grief , once again, telling them they must pay the fiddler. For what doesn’t matter. Damn reality!

Lockdown Left: The Political Divide

If I had to pick only one story for the week it would be the Lockdown Left.

We all knew it was coming, the day when the economy and things would need to be reopened. Yet at every turn the Democrats seem to want to be stuck in a state of lockdown. Not much incentive or ambition is moving them. Why is that?

Some feel it is the power rush they’ve gotten off this COVID shutdown in the first place. And they are pretty formidable with taking advantage of a crisis for political gain, even if they drag out the economic effects into the election.

I have a new theory about it all. Have you noticed that when one of these major crises comes up, it always seems like it should be a no-brainer? The instinctive reaction is that at least we should all agree on this. But it doesn’t take more than days to see the left emerge to rain on any parade of consensus.

Take any problem you like. China is just a perfect example. You would think we can agree where Coronavirus came from and who is to blame. But no. We cannot talk about China.

How about spying on American citizens? You’d think that would be a hands down consensus. Nope. Turns out the Left likes government spying on citizens because it is legal. They just need the power to do it, never mind how they use it. The purpose for it doesn’t matter, especially if used on their political opponents.

You would think at least there is little partisan about the economy. Turns out almost everything can be politicized and weaponized in the economy. Who knew? Green vs. carbon burners. Workers vs owners of companies. Legal vs illegal workers.

Nurses and doctors can be celebrated as war heroes. But cops not so much. The NYC health commissioner said she doesn’t give a rat’s ass about cops having PPE’s for COVID.
Hospitals can be treated one way, nursing homes treated another. Mass transit workers had an alarming rate of infection and death, but don’t tell the public. Keep it quiet.

Do you think they are incapable of politicizing your healthcare or the healthcare system?

When government decides you are an essential worker, it is their way of saying they like you and what you do. You are “essential.” But if they don’t, look out. And they don’t seem to like barbers and beauticians. In California, they threaten to fine them and cut off their electric and water if they catch barbers working. No cheaters.

Have any major crisis and problem and it will only illustrate the political divide.That shouldn’t be but it tells you what you need to know about the left. They will be on any dissenting side of any good issue for the country. Terrorism, they side with terrorists. Dispute with a tyrannical power in the world; they side with tyranny.

If we want to stop the flood of illegal immigrants or countries from undermining our markets? The Left tells us to “stop being a bully.” That’s empirical talk.

Well, then there is always civil rights to bring us all together. No, selective rights and privileges for selected people. They decide who gets what. And their beloved sanctuary cities tell the federal government to go to hell with enforcing immigration laws.

Well, law and order still needs to be enforced, right? No, not really. Catch and release was a border enforcement problem. Now it seems the same applies to criminals. Arrest them and then turn them back onto the street so they can re-offend and re-victimize people.

See how politics enters the fray on every major thing? A country running on a serious ideological bent is not a very healthy country. But one that can carry out a coup when some people don’t like whom the voters elected is not a very healthy country either.

Politics Of A Pandemic

Some people refuse to believe this pandemic is anything more than a flu hoax, oversold and over-hyped. The reasons are assorted but they don’t seem to be changing their minds.

I made the decision early on as to whether to follow the conspiracy side or accept it as a real pandemic threat. I chose the pandemic side and haven’t questioned that decision. Maybe the same can be said for the conspiracists.

Not that I’m anti-conspiracy, I just like to choose them wisely. This one didn’t fit for me unless I missed some mountain of evidence. We have plenty of valid ones out there, as far as I’m concerned. But no matter which side, people seem dug in on what they think of it.

However, I have seen enough damage now. There is a list of things affected by the Asian Contagion, China virus. No, they don’t add proof to the cause but they do say something about the severity of it. Just to mention a few things we know though the list is growing:

    • Food shortages on everyday items
    • Masks in public everywhere.
    • Economic damage
    • Small businesses get slammed with costs as it continues.
    • Job losses, or eliminations.
    • Enormous costs in deficit, continuing
    • Shortages of medical supplies
    • Regular procedures at hospitals suspended.
    • No family gatherings (a plus to some people)
    • No church
    • No schools
    • Stay at home – isolation
    • (The list goes on, evolving almost weekly.)

Now the problem is the hoax-conspiracists can just as easily say it is all further proof of the successful damage of the hoax. They can weave it right into their plot. Then they will blame the hoax itself, and its creators, for these ongoing sufferings we see and feel. They see the hoax as the cause of it all. The effects are suppose to validate the hoax theory.

I take the different approach. I just add it as more damage that this virus from China has caused. It is a mounting tally. And I see China as the cause of it all. So all the damages are collateral effects of the pandemic. You can see those effects range from medical to economic, to the seemingly unrelated normal things.

Never the less, in my mind anyway, all of it traces back to China by way of the pandemic. So you cannot buy your Chunky Soup at the grocery store because of the pandemic. I’m all for understanding temporary shortages for due reasons but these droughts seem to be dragging out for extended periods, making you wonder when things will be the same again?

Has this crossed the line now to the point when things migjht never be the same, at least for some time to come? I didn’t think so at first but now I am not so sure. Maybe this has pushed these negatives so far that it cannot return to normal? Again, for that I hold China responsible for it all.

Even the mask wearing, which sort of irritates me, seems more a part of the foreseeable future than I hoped. Are we living in a period of unprecedented change? I do hope not because there are plenty of people who would like to take advantage of that. Far worse than even gouging and hoarding.

And those sorts of people lead me right back to the subject of this piece, politics and opportunist politicians. Sure there are others too, but they functionally follow the same formula. That is to extort the problem for all it’s worth, for personal and political gain – often the same thing. But make no mistake, it has been politicized, used and extorted.

World’s Worst Regime

China is now the undisputed worst regime in the world. Coronavirus only peeled away any arguments to the contrary. The world has been infected and changed by China.

On a personal note, I woke up this morning dreaming how bad things have gotten, seemingly turning everything upside down. Except it is not really a dream. What a difference 2 months have made. We also topped 50k dead in the same time.

If you want to do a simple experiment, try going to a funeral home website in one of the affected areas of the virus. You can look down a list of obituaries, which normally are filled with details about a person’s life, only to see death was related to COVID-19 – no services. It leaves a surreal knot in your throat.

How much has changed in America in a few short months? Well, the list is long from the economy to all the personal matters. Too long to list here. How big those changes are: from funerals to sporting events, schools, to shopping and having family gatherings.

Then last week the FBI Director, Chris Wray announced the major problem across the country is Coronavirus hate speech. Or people hating on the Chinese because of Covid-19. So that is a top priority for FBI to investigate? Of all the urgent priorities to take up, but he had to issue warning and guidance to all their FBI offices to be on the lookout for it.

We can compound that with the problem of getting out Coronavirus economic aid to people and small businesses. Look at the same old typical responses in Congress. Mass exodus, they went to ground but they still clung to those leftist ideological dreams over lives.

But let’s not lose sight of the forest for the trees. All this, hard as it is to remember, ties directly back to the original China cause of Coronavirus in the first place.

Then we have the whole political perspective problem. Congressman James Clyburn said that Coronavirus was a huge political opportunity. Corona Cuomo said we have to re-imagine our entire economy in reopening it. Re-imagine? Nancy Pelosi held out for weeks for her political agenda of the Left. The users and abusers surround us while we fight off a pandemic. Their rationalizations are absurd, yet we must fight the pandemic disease too. Note to Cuomo, there was nothing wrong with the economy pre-COVID-19.

AOC announced that when the economy does reopen, workers should all boycott it by refusing to go back to work in some sick act of political solidarity. How’s that help?

But in the end, we must remember and never forget the actual cause of this Panditrosity was entirely set off by China. The rest and even the political atrocity are all still symptoms of that whole. Do not lose sight of the origin of this pandemic, regardless of what Dir. Wray says. It was not caused by hate or the economy either. It was the other way around.

Andrew Cuomo said in a daily briefing that the new boutique industry in the US is now mask art. With that he smiles. Have we become a mask-wearing people?

So we have succumbed to wearing masks as a last resort to protect ourselves and others. For years we have seen this strange phenomena in Asian countries of wearing masks in public. We always assumed we don’t wear masks here in public. Well, now for ourselves and because of government guidelines, we are wearing masks. What a change.

Let’s hope the mask fad is temporary. But mask art?

Still that barely touches the surface on all the strange new things brought on by this. I will leave you with one extra thought. We may never know what would have been, we can only guess, but the year 2020 was shaping up to be something else entirely. COVID intervened. Whatever that was would have been better than a pandemic. We will never know. And there would have been 50 thousand more people alive to witness it. Thanks China!

Economic Reboot

It’s all about the economy now. Strange how conversation shifted from ventilators to the economy. But we may as well have put the economy on the ventilator for 40 days. So it was not that original 15-day or 30-day shutdown, but 45 days. Economic hibernation.

Once again, the left seems clueless about the economy. It’s the one part of the crisis that has not gotten airtime from liberal media. That is up until now anyway.

Suddenly the radical moonbat Left shifted to talking about the economy when Trump made the itchy suggestions he wanted to open it back up. Right on cue, the left flocked in to decry opening businesses. “Too soon,” they shrieked.

The real question, to Democrats, is not when can we open the economy but how long they can keep it down and how much damage can they do to it? It is obvious they only want to prolong economic effects as long as they can to hurt Trump. Bui everything is election politics and nothing is really about the health of the people or economy. All it ever was.

Democrats are oblivious to the national economy. What’s that spell? DONE. And we will be if we follow Democrats’ prescription protocol. Just what Dr. Evil of the Left ordered.

But now everyone is focused on it so their stupid political tricks are transparent to the entire awaiting country. It was the gem they saw in the crisis. Sure, people die but they have a wounded economy to use and abuse, which they plan on extorting to the max.

It is also obvious Democrats, led by Pelosi and Schumer, plan on holding the people and businesses hostage to their radical political agenda. And they have no conscience about it.

Rebooting the economy, then, should require booting Democrats as far from the levers of power as possible this fall. Even by then, they will have done some damage. Except people are watching closely and keeping score now. Call them the unDONE.

Coming Bailout Candidates?

I am very troubled by something because when you start being cynical about powers that be, you begin to predict their sinister moves. Too often predictions are proved out.

That fear is that, somehow or somewhere, the corrupt and contemptible politicians would try to use this aid package or another one to benefit unions. Unfortunately that doesn’t sound so far-fetched. But how do I mean?

It is entirely speculative but I mean an intentionally direct scheme to try to bail out union pensions. Look, we’ve known the numbers for years. Those same powerful unions will have their hands out since businesses are getting help.

Their allies in Congress, on your dime, are more than willing and capable enough to try to pull it off. Shutter to think!

Full disclosure: I am a vested pension member of the Teamsters. Our local has been in restructuring or Chapter 11 for decades now. (Hard to think of the time they weren’t) We know the condition of public employee pensions. All very powerful lobbying voices.

Well, if that happened, all hell would break loose and shred what little confidence people have for DC. But Democrats wouldn’t care about that one bit, to make it even worse.

I mean just the idea they attempt some bailout to unions will be a disaster, whether it has any chance of happening or not. Call it a wild hunch.

For my and America’s sake, I hope my guess is wrong but I don’t put it past them. The Left has already tried all the other stuff on their agenda. Do you think unions are going to sit back while all this exponential spending is going on?

Union bailout…. Hoffa, can you hear me?

Ticking Virus Problem

In the last few weeks, we watched as self-isolation became a thing, the stock market sank to a bear market, stores and businesses shut down, streets were emptied. All of which were based on a pandemic from China killing people and wrecking the economy.

Now media runs to remote microphones to sensationalize every symptom created by it and to forecast gloom and doom jobless claims and recession. The good old fear-mongering left has lots of ammunition. From bailouts to healthcare, to hoarding on main street.

But what would you expect? You shut down most of the economy and there will be problems. I compare it to turning off a light switch and then complaining it is dark.

We cannot compare it to a regular recession or typical unemployment woes. Yet the media is all over it as if they were one and the same. They are trying hard to fit this crisis into that same box. Statistics cry for context.

Never mind that when you turn the light switch back on it will not be darkness anymore. The problem with the left and this crisis is that they cannot plug in their usual talking points and factoids to color the situation. But that doesn’t stop them from trying. When you turn off part of the economy, there are consequences. We know that.

Beneath it all it is still a biological problem. You know how liberals deal with biological problems; they abort them.

But this one needs to run its course and be defeated, not celebrated as a political weapon to attack Trump. Think of the consequences avoided by taking the actions we did.

Even the root problem in all this is not really COVID –19, it is Democrats still grieving over their loss in 2016. And the cure to that problem is to defeat them again. It must be done for survival sake.

Corona Calling, hold please

There is a story here, I promise you. We all know it, but for now that story will have to remain untold. It is as stealthy and fluid as the Coronavirus.

Instead of that story, we have buzzwords bouncing off the airwaves. That is never a great scenario. And the endless list of buzzwords are things like:

  • Coronavirus or COVID-19
  • China
  • Liquidity
  • Equity
  • Fake news
  • Isolation
  • Masks N95
  • Quarantine
  • Stock buybacks
  • Shortage
  • Testing
  • Vaccine
  • Ventilators
  • Zoom

Try the number: 56.8 million people are employed in small businesses. 9.6 million people are self-employed . Who’s looking out for them?

Right now the Senate rushes to try to assemble a huge aid package, whether you want to call it stimulus or whatever. It fails at both the start and finish lines to carry the votes.

Nancy Pelosi’s reply to the bill was I will write a package myself. Well, the Speaker and leader of the great impeachment now wants to write their own economic proposal. Does anyone see anything wrong with that?

All politics but excuse me; this was not about politics. None of it was or is.
Buzzwords or politics as usual are no solution to the China Coronavirus.

Save us from the Pelosivirus. Meanwhile, the MSM has a pandemic of its own.

The Bernie Campaign Motto

If I had to sum up a campaign motto for Bernie in a simple slogan, I’d say it has to be “make them an offer they can’t refuse.” I know most of us associate that with mob activity. But it fits nicely to Bernie Sanders. It is more of a doctrine.

He simply capitalized on the idea of making them an offer so enticing (and stimulating) they cannot turn it down. I mean why should they? All they have to do is vote for him, not like that is costing them anything really. Or so the rationalization goes. Meanwhile, they won’t even know they’ve been baited.

When Trump used the line “what have they got to lose” it actually applied. Meaning people have been locked into failing schools and communities for years, sometimes generations, without improvement even though they kept going to the polls voting for it.

They thought they were doing the right thing only to be lied to over and over again. All politicians really want or need is that vote. Then pols can go on their self-absorbed way. But why give people the improvement when it is the desire for it that has kept them coming out to vote for you? That’s a simple strategy many pols embrace. In other words, why give up the goose that is laying those golden eggs so nicely?

And yes, Democrats and Republicans have both engaged in this “keep them coming back for more” strategy. (Abott and Costello would love that bit)

However, this whole concept of ‘nothing to lose’ is the mentality younger generations have perverted into a ‘why not’ attitude which seems to, more often, get them more than it costs them in the long run. You can’t blame them for trying anyway even if it doesn’t pan out.

Now Bernie uses one gimmick. That is the sales pitch he typically turns to in town halls, usually stacked with his supporters. He suggests he wants a little survey to make his point. He asks them if they believe healthcare is a human right? Then they cheer. He asks if college tuition should be free and government should pay off student debt? They agree. On and on he goes, ticking off item after item on his list. I mean they aren’t going to say no, why should they? So they can’t refuse.

No one is sitting there thinking that it might not be quite right. In fact they are thinking that it should be an actual “right”.

That, in effect, is the explanation for his entire campaign. He’s there to give them what they want. It is not about practicality it is about desire. Oh sure he schemes up some numbers on a paper of how we can pay for it by just “asking a little bit mo’ from the rich.”

It sounds good so what is the problem?

That is: it sounds so good. No one is going to say, “I think we should skip on that but what is the rest of your plan?” No, that is Bernie’s whole plan. There is nothing else to it. That is the plan, a quid pro quo to get him elected. If he was buying votes it would be wrong. But since he is buying your votes with the government’s taxpayer money it is okay. And who cares about what it will cost when it is really just about what you want anyway?

Bernie is no fool but he is making one out of you. And if our elections are now only about demanding what goodies and “freebies” you want to demand, then we are in uncharted territory. They’ve already decided they want to give you a right to kill a baby all the way up to date of birth for whatever reason. If they compromise on the virtue of life, what won’t they be willing to do?

Besides, those gifts and rights they are going to give you are just a cost of doing business. It’s like the car dealership with that enticing gimmick to get you to come down to the lot. Test-drive a few.

How can you say no to that? So the campaign and election is not about Bernie and his record, or what is best for the country, it’s about what you want. And you should have it.

Remember, his answer to any question then is to turn to the crowd and say do you think healthcare should be a right – to get free medical service? He knows the odds are highly stacked in his favor. He justifies his campaign on your need.

And with all this strategy in mind, he says he is going to get the largest voter turnout in history to win. Does it work? Well, it is not costing Bernie anything.

So the next time you see him turn to an audience to ask the question, ask yourself what is the answer to that?

In Bernie’s mind “why complicate it?” And why should we?

Predictions and Contradictions

Lets talk about predictions. Based on pure speculation, I would predict that Trump wins by a landslide. Now a new analysis by Moody’s is saying pretty much that.

There is also a polling group studying swing voters. They just finished surveying the rust belt. And those swing voters, who went for Trump in 2016 appear undeterred. They are going by 2/3rds to Trump. That is despite what the media is saying.

Or maybe it is in spite of what media is saying, since many of them are not paying attention to the impeachment talk. They are fixated on what matters to them and what caused them to vote for Trump in the first place. In other words, the people didn’t change just because the left and media still don’t like him — and don’t give him a chance.

Now that Democrats and media are going to impeachment full throttle, many voters are mad because it is all they are doing. Voters want attention on their issues but Congress is completely on an impeachment agenda loop cycle. And that’s all they are working on.

So it is not just conservatives and Republican supporters but swing voters who are angry. They are seeing the glaring contradictions in what is going on. Voters are not letting their attention get hijacked from the real issues. It seems like that is what the left wants.

Democrats want to sidetrack our attention and then run their socialist schemes right up the middle. (they are now unified by Socialism — which is the only thing that unifies them other than Trump hatred.) All they have to do is get us a little preoccupied by their shit show. So far people aren’t buying it and it doesn’t seem momentum is in their favor.

AOC Is Grief Stricken

The tears of a commie. I think what happened is AOC confused motherhood with mother earth and believes she is mother earth. Reminds me of an old margarine commercial.

AOC CRIES: Earth Facing ‘Extinction,’ ‘Dreams Of Motherhood Now Taste Bittersweet’

Daily Wire — Ryan Saavedra

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) cried on Friday during a climate alarmist speech in Copenhagen at the C40 World Mayors Summit where she claimed that her “dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future.”

Ocasio-Cortez began her alarmist speech by claiming that humanity was at a crossroads of “extinction or opportunity,” adding that there is “no middle road” on climate policy.

“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being — a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”

“It is not a coincidence that these disasters get relatively little media coverage, and that even less of the coverage dares to mention climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed. Media coverage of natural disasters often get significant coverage, with “climate change” being one of the top points parroted by the media.

“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”

Ocasio-Cortez then suggested that capitalism promotes “lawbreaking pursuit of profit” and that capitalism only benefits “the very few,” despite the fact that capitalism has lifted more people out of extreme poverty than any other economic system.

Ocasio-Cortez then admitted that her far-left $93 trillion plan is really about “chang[ing] society” and “winning” in politics, and that the desired outcomes are to fix “injustice” and promote “equality.”

This is similar to what Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted during an interview.

The Washington Post reports:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” [Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D)] greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Article posted at Daily Wire

Well, no middle of her road. I’m not sure she is qualified to speak as a human being. All that Marxist stuff running through her veins would sort of contradict that.

No coverage on the “climate crisis?” That’s all they talk about. The MSM cannot cover a legitimate natural disaster without making it about climate change or Global Warming.

No, it’s not a coincidence or scientific anomaly …. it is pure politics and socialism, about defying all our freedoms and rights. They admit it isn’t about climate change; it’s about their agenda. So what are the consequences of that agenda?

What is really “unsustainable” is their socialist agenda and the supporting government for it. But it doesn’t look like anyone will address that problem soon enough.

Right on the heals of AOC’s statement, Bernie says Elizabeth Warren may be a “capitalist in her bones, but I’m not.” Nope, he’s a commie and past the socialist garden long ago. But he has it exactly backwards. Socialism only benefits few ringmasters, the puppet masters. It is meant to be a transformational thing — to our politics and economy. And they don’t really care about the dire consequences on either of them.

In a few years it will be “the day the music died” — her music and Bernie’s pied piper tune. I’m also wondering if she could be a poltergeist?

It is us who are in the real fight to save ourselves and country from the doom and gloom of AOC and her tribe of commie buddies. That’s a challenge. Why does that thought of someone calling AOC a mom bother me so much?

So maybe I have a little surprise for AOC and her commie pals. There are some things we ain’t ever going to see. And your socialist plans are right at the top of the list.

Thinking Aloud: Parallels

I read things and some things really bother me. So then is the answer to just stop reading?

I’d like to think not. Though it is frustrating to see what you must to inform yourself, while not being able to control your blood pressure. That frustration is real and I know a lot of people feel it. I suppose there is some desperation too.

I haven’t found a way to turn it into a comic game yet. Nor do I want to. It’s been a long time but I have read lots of pieces from the Socialists, Marxists and commies. That alone is an effort, with the way they speak about it. I researched much of it in the 90’s seeing what is out there and I have to say, not a whole lot as changed. Even the same graphics they use.

It is almost like peering into a timeless vault where no current events have really affected it, not their thinking anyway. Of course much of it goes back to what Marx and Engels wrote so it really doesn’t change. And their mindsets haven’t changed either.

What I can say to try to sum it up is they are persistent and bold. They believe in this ideology. These are hardliners who, whatever name they prefer to use at present, are actually commies. Most are very aware of it. Some are just rationalizing commies that only think it has not been implemented correctly yet. But the ideology stands as justifiable to them today as it was when Marxism was rolled out. Deaths and failures be damned.

They will not change. The question is how many adherents can they gather to follow along or become their useful idiots? Today should provide some optimism. You know, years ago I used to raise it to liberals and they would mock the mere fact I brought it up. They would claim that is all dead, like Nazism, and for the sake of discussion socialism is an old relic. Or that is what they said.

Today, they proudly boast of socialism and it is adopted by the mainstream Democrat Party. Though old Marxists have told us the only destination for Socialism is Communism. That is where it all leads. But that is not popular to a lot of people, so they would prefer telling people that they have found the right mix, good socialism.

Backup to what I have concluded from what I learned. The important thing is that Marxism or Socialism is both an economic and political system. It combines the two. And you really can’t separate them, as planned. If we don’t keep banging the gong about the evils of socialism, we allow it to continue. Remember the old “Gong Show” where a panelist bangs the gong to stop the act, to end the agony of enduring it? Even when we see those real workd examples in Venezuela, the left ignores the message. Then they tell you that was an outlier. How many outliers do you need?

 

Another thing on my mind lately is the Brexit situation in the EU. It seems to keep going on and on. Now with a hard date approaching, they are trying to pass a bill to delay it until the end of June. You see them dragging their knuckles in Britain doing everything they can to stop it. But people voted on it, they made their decision. Now it is up to leaders to enact the will of the people. But they just can’t do that. So they stall and complain.

Isn’t it amazing how much in common the USA has with Britain at this time? I notice all the parallels. The same thing applies here. The establishment is kicking and screaming to any major change. They certainly do not like rolling back their power. In both places people made their will known and the establishment promptly ignores or defies it. As if we hadn’t decided. Do you see that timeline running in parallel? In 2016 we had an election, and UK voted for Brexit. The powers of government have been in resistance ever since.

Look at the spread of antisemitism in Europe. The same thing is happening here. But those who stand up against it are called names. We are the problem. Call out or talk about the Islamists and you are the problem, not radical Islamists. Yet that is only a hint of what’s to come. Radicals have infiltrated European countries by immigration, and we now have radical illegal immigration threatening every part of our US border. Organized invasion. They all claim it is a peaceful and beautiful thing to be praised and celebrated. Only it isn’t. There are real costs and consequences. However, we the people should ignore those. In Britain, they tell the people the same thing, “just ignore it, don’t make waves.”

See how much we have in common with the political agendas in both countries?

One would also think that lawmakers in both places would take note of this frustration and stand of the people. But they don’t and dig in their heels instead. They want to wait us out or defy our will. They claim to know better than the pesky people what is good for them. It is amazing the similarities running in parallel.

In Israel, they are trying to route Netanyahu. The same thing applies in the US on a greater scale. Give us more time, they say, and we will get rid of him. We will change things in the next election, they claim. But what about the election in 2016? That didn’t count. They want a mulligan on that. Its the next election, roll out the polls. The Left does not want to solve any of these problems. Actually, it wants to exacerbate and agitate them. They want more friction until they get their way.

When I see the parallels in Britain with ours, I am astonished. The same attitude exists in the people. They are so fed up. The last straw was over two years ago and no one noticed. They call us names, we are the problem not what they are trying to do. Now they want another election to fix things. Fix it? No way.

Here was a statement by an old time rock and roller from the Who. It stunned me. Frontman Roger Daltrey wieghed in on Brexit in 2017:

“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure.”

“It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag. (More)”

Now in 2019 he spoke up again saying the EU is like being governed by the Mafi. Not a big fan. Yet they keep trying to find a way to drag out Brexit, or stop it altogether. Seems like the whole world has huge denial issues. No wonder the people are sick of it. Elections mean nothing, referendums mean nothing, the will of the people means nothing.

 

Along comes California. The new Governor, Gavin Newsom decided to up and end capital punishment. Well, just a year or so ago the people voted to keep capital punishment and speed up the appeal process. Sure, that sounded a lot like ending the the death penalty. But Newsom doesn’t care about what voters say. In fact, he promised when he ran that he would not let his views influence law or the death penalty. But no, he overturns it all by himself. Will of the people be damned, once again. Promises mean nothing, especially when made on the campaign trail to get elected.

Contrast that with President Trump who is actually trying everything possible to keep his promises and deliver for the people. Oh, can’t have that now, can we? But Newsom will be praised and Trump will be condemned. Every roadblock imaginable is thrown out in front of Trump to stop him. Or even stop his presidency altogether. The will of the people meant nothing when we elected him, it means nothing to them now.

So shift all the emphasis onto the next election. They didn’t accept the results of the last one. Now they want an election to nullify the 2016 election. Meanwhile, obstruct and defy the voice of the people. The people cannot be allowed to make decisions.

The people don’t want impeachment and don’t like the effects of socialism. But force both on the people. Tell us we have no choice. But our choice was never respected.
