Never Let A Pandemic Crisis Go To Waste

Imagine if someone came along and just slapped a shutdown order on your storefront or business for 2 weeks — or until further notice. Then said, at the end of 15 days we can talk about future operations. “We’ll let you know. Stay tuned.”

That is effectively what government has done here. Now granted there is an emergency and medical reasons but that makes the whole idea seem only slightly more palatable.

Sure in the end, businesses and people did it for the good of people and the country. They did it for moral purposes. And they didn’t even complain that much. It was deemed a social necessity to limit the spread of a vicious disease, a real pandemic.

Americans did what they usually do, made the best of it.

Businesses accepted and complied with their social responsibility without pointing fingers or blame. Schools were shuttered. Further, people were inconvenienced and forced into social isolation under threat of offense if they did not comply. But they didn’t need threats; Americans complied.

Now if all that were not bad enough, they now see shaping up a bill to address those economic damages which piles an entire agenda of other non-related, political issues onto their sufferings. They watch their own legislators piling on political wishes to their damages like ornaments.

I don’t think words can describe the outrageous fury of people over those circumstances.

ABC News reports:

Prior to the vote, Republicans complained Democrats have turned negotiations into a “leftwing episode of Supermarket Sweep.”

“Why are Democrats filibustering the bipartisan bill they helped write?” McConnell wondered, ticking through a “Democratic wish list” that he said was preventing an agreement, including tax credits for solar energy and wind energy provisions to force employers to give “special new treatment for big labor,” and new emissions standards for airlines.

Let me get this straight: the government comes along and wrecks businesses at a moments notice then tells them to get in line behind their pet political concerns? There must be a hot fiery place for that – extremely hot.

Words cannot express the people’s rage for that treatment. They broke the model but have problems about fixing it? Democrats are playing a very dangerous and sinister game here. But it is just politics as usual to them. That’s a shame.

Americans didn’t cause this. They didn’t ask for this. In fact, the only thing they ever ask is that government protect the country. Actually, the government and Democrats in particular were too busy with their political agenda, and trying to impeach the president that they could not protect the country. They didn’t care.

But now they want to use this economic crisis they created to feather their own political nests, to play election politics with your livelihood. Disgraceful.

Americans did their part, now government does not want to do their jobs or be responsible. And what accountability? Democrats’ political agenda is job #1.

To make matters even worse, when they go took the floor arguing for their self-serving political agenda, they called the bill a “bailout” for businesses. Relief for damages through no fault of their own, they call it bailouts? Are you kidding me?

They owe it to Americans and people deserve better than this extortion plot. But we the people are supposed to suffer and pay for their own malfeasance.

Some Like It Hard

After years of accusing Trump of being an authoritarian dictator, media and the left now demand he enact martial law. They want unilateral action and they want it now.

Another consideration for your consumption, instead of media talking points: Trump signs the Defense Production Act and then they scream but he has not used it yet. Prove it if you have or else “why not?”

And they ask so if he now has the capability, having enacted the power. then where are the tens of millions of masks and supplies? These people don’t know anything about physical production. Merely enacting a power does not make things magically appear at will.

I will say seeing Trump effectively close the borders does put a big smile on my face.

“Lives are at stake,” they say, thousands of lives. People that proudly aborted over 60 million lives suddenly have an immediate obsession with saving lives. Sure, they are the compassionate ones.

On With The Socialist Show

So Super Tuesday is here and has begun. Good because I am anxious to start getting an idea about how many socialists and communists there are in this country?

I have already suggested we temporarily declare this Bernie Day. I’m sure he would like that. Why not? We sort of know what is happening at the polls. It’s no mystery.

So we can get on with this process and get a head count of how many socialists and commies there are. At least the ones who vote anyway, which should give us a reasonable idea. It seems to be more than we would have thought though.

As I previously explained, anyone who votes for Bernie is by default a socialist. It’s what they are voting for whether they realize it or not. It’s time we know.

Post results, all of America can feel the Bern one way or another — for or against him.

On with the show, this is it!

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?

The Race Is On

Democrats have a competition problem. When they can’t compete with their opponents, they resort to the their tried and true methods of shutting down their opponent however they can. Speech, lashing out at supporters, breaking kneecaps are all on the table.

On the other side to Democrat candidates, Bernie is over there running a public auction for the federal coffers. He’s agreed to give them whatever they want to ascend him and his ideology into office. After all, that is what it is about to Democrats.

Other candidates know they can’t compete with that. There is no limit to what Bernie can promise them. So what can other Democrats do? Nothing.

Besides that, Bernie has the Party split every way imaginable: young and old, rich and poor, class and profession, parents and children. And he has catered to his preference in each of those sides. It is class warfare multiplied by 10 x 100.

If you haven’t had the thrill of being called a “boomer” yet, just wait. They are at war with anything or anyone they see as standing in their way. Politics is personal to them.

And he has it figured out; so he is willing to promise the masses (anyone but the 1-5%) anything they want. Then he simply tells them the rich will pay for it all. Bernie doesn’t even know the total cost of all his giveaways, but he knows the rich will pay for it.

Take that to the socialist bank.

He can’t know because when you promise free college and free healthcare to illegals, they’ll come and keep coming in droves. It is ever-growing making it impossible to count real cost. So no one can know the cost in 2 years let alone in 5 years. Whatever we’re offering?

Other Democrats are just flailing in the wind compared to the Bern auction. Bernie is always paying the highest price for voters. Actually we are.

But Bernie also knew one other thing Dems should all know. The Democrats always flock toward the real leftist. It is hard to outrun someone from the right in the Democrat Party. They must think you are really a candidate of the Left to get behind you. They want proof on things like baby slaughtering, manna from Gov’t, open borders or pro-crime.

Sorry Pete Buttigieg, your resume is a bit blank. I mean we are pretty sure you are a staunch Marxist-progressive but we’d like to see more evidence not platitudes.

And the last thing these progressive Leftists want is to be told “no” or that can’t happen. That is punching one’s expiration date because one can never go far enough left for them. Further is what this is all about.

One practical example. Everyone seems outraged over Bernie’s Castro remarks but his China one is even worse. Bernie claimed China’s communist system has raised more people out of poverty than anything else in the world. He insinuated that is a good thing.

Well, if you must give up your personal political freedom for better economic circumstances that is a good trade off? Just as long as you support the power who bestows the economic blessings on you. But that rationalization sounds just like the Democrat Party. Forfeit your individual political freedom and vote to them, and they will take care of you. Plantation politics. So vote for your class, status, race, etc. not your individual preference. And as long as they all vote to support the Mao progressives, what’s the problem?

The Mushroom People

One of the most refreshing things so far about the Trump Presidency is the lack of comparisons to the Bush administration. If the Bushies thought they set the standard or high water mark in that administration, they were wrong.

Instead, the Obama administration did set the high mark for politicizing and weaponizing every faucet of government against its enemies; spying on citizens and its political opponents. That has no equal.

So comparisons of both of those to Trump are without merit. Trump charted a new course.

Obama used government as a weapon against all his enemies. He had his records sealed. What was that all about? What is he hiding? They went to endless lengths to attack their political opponents and still do. Then there was an elaborate cover up of it all.

Fortunately, we never saw a Hillary administration in action, which would have taken weaponization to new levels. But she did bequeath a dossier from foreign agents and back fed it into our government/intelligence, spawning a witch hunt and Deep State coup.

And Obama still thinks he has scores to settle. However, it was us who were violated, victimized and villainized. It continues three years later. What did we do wrong?

Still Trump gets the btunt of all the attacks from both Obama people and old never-Trumpers seeking to stop him. He’s attacked like no president in modern history. All because he refused to play the game the way they play it. And he has the people standing on his side like no other because of it.

As predicted, they impeached him the first chance they got just as they promised to do from the beginning. Talk about grudges and vendettas. They even ran a full-blown soft coup from Deep State before that. They undermine every policy he’s had. They mock him while showing no respect for the office or the people who elected him. They call us names and attack us.

Who do these people think they are? They tell us they are the “Resistance.” They’ve taken it to new levels of sedition. They themselves undermine any democracy in the country. In their book, losers are winners and winners become losers. They’ve said they’ll do whatever it takes to oppose Trump. If it means breaking the law, so be it.

If it means defying and opposing what the country stands for, they’ll do it. If it means using every part of government they can lay siege on or hijack to get their way, they are willing to use it against the president. These are the dregs and cream of the seditious crop. They are traitors to the country, claiming to stand on some principle of opposition.

And now, now, they want to push socialism on us like some new morality. They believe the answer to every one of our problems is socialism. But even that is not quite enough. They are really Marxists. And their so-called resistance is against anyone in their way.

Yes, it is a Revolution like Bernie says. Democrats have become the party of sedition and insurrection until they get their way. They thrive off the darkest corners of our society.

Socialism Is On The Ballot In 2020

Socialism is very much on the ballot in the 2020 election. How could it not be?

When did this socialism takeover happen? Oh, it is not a recent discovery. It would have to go way back. But they kept that closet closed and pretty well guarded. Evidenced by how Bernie was not mainstream until recent years. He wasn’t a rock star. He was a lead weight they did not want to get too tied to.

But then you have to make an admission about the current state of Democrats. There are a lot of socialism deniers in the Democrat Party. (That is not the same as denying socialism) They can disassociate with the term socialist if they want to. They can call it progressive like they usually do. They can even deny that it is about socialism.

But that flies in the face of the truth. We can see it is all about socialism. And has been for some time. Sure they are in denial of most everything, except Bernie.

Something else is going on. Notice the lamestream media, for instance. Just look at the last few weeks. They are struggling because they really cannot address the Bernie issue. Even CNN and MSNBC frowned and danced around the fact that Bernie was gaining in the polls. Then when he started winning they were dumbstruck. Why? That is another matter.

Media were not happy and looking for anyone else they could hold up and promote besides Bernie. See all the attention that went toward Mike Bloomberg? But it is BS in reality. They bemoaned Bernie sucking up all the oxygen. They reject the idea that this is all about socialism. They searched for a way to explain it.

If they didn’t like it, they had one choice, vet him and the ideas he’s pushes like a flood. Do they do that? No.

In the last few days, they are grieving the prospect he is winning and what it means for the Party. They sit and discuss their dislike that he is cannibalizing the primaries and the entire party. (he’s had some practice and never stopped campaigning since 2016)

They gripe about it and yet do not talk about the real problem. They will not address Bernie, his character, record, or ideas. They won’t talk about his bio in depth. (this man who has smitten the base by storm) They will not address the issues he is talking about, the cost or the consequences, in depth.

His plans are dismissed like yesterday’s news and tossed into the corner. The cost is not mentioned. The foreign policy he supports is not given an airing. So why not?

Now you know, it is because all those ideas are popular and supported by people. (now anyway) So they cannot criticize the ideas because they are the main entree on DNC’s menu. Of course they are popular. He is the one bold enough to run with them like a true radical. But he does not really explain them because he doesn’t have to, with an empathetic media and cheer leading Marxists in the party.

In other words, they do not dare attack what they all believe in. They all like and believe in these things. It is incredible how they will not take on or criticize the substance of all Bernie’s plans. So they do not like the socialism label because it has a bad image.

Yet they support all the ingredients of socialism. They deny the effects, but they will not deny the ideas. It is very much them. It is nothing new.

Now the dirty little secret is out, they won’t call out the ideas. They will not address the socialism issue either. It is the last thing Democrats want to talk about. “Russia, Russia!”

So they can say they are not socialists all they want. But if they are supporting and voting for Bernie; if they support the ideas and agenda; then they are socialists just the same — no matter what they claim.

When they actively support the ideas and campaign, they are socialists. In some ways they are the worst kind because they don’t realize it. Now it’s the cool morality of socialism.

That is why we cannot say it recently happened. This is who Democrats are; Bernie finally put an end to the questions. But that is who they have been been all along though there was a cognitive denial about it. Bernie already had commies and socialists onboard.

Yet they endorsed all the ideas and basic tenets of socialism for years. The closet is now open and the skeletons loom larger than life.

Nazis, France and Bernie… oh my!

Some people, particularly in the media, do not quite understand the dynamics of the Bernie Sanders’ campaign. And the ones who do are not talking much.

You see there is a darker side to the whole ordeal, aside from politics as usual. How that is handled makes it interesting to say the least. It’s not just politics as usual.

Exhibit A: Chris Matthews compares the Bernie campaign to the Nazi invasion of France. Well, heads explode. Matthews is suddenly public enemy one. Bernie people are enraged.

(Ironically, the Justice Democrats were yelling the loudest. Is that funny?)

It’s not the first time a Nazi analogy has been used in politics. What gives? Only now they are furious. Bernie himself has compared Trump to a dictator. Ads are running in Miami comparing Trump to dictators like Chavez etc.

Now Chris will be introduced to the brown shirts. There is no anecdote to the Bernie Bros. After all, Bernie suggested they were Russians or cyber-bots anyway. Ha ha.

Democrats to Matthews: it’s over, resign now!

Who knows, we may get to Normandy before it is over?

Feeling The Bern

Unfortunately, not enough attention has been paid to Bernie’s ideas and campaign bling. Unfortunately, more attention must be paid to Bernie’s campaign. See the problem; who wants to do that? Not the media that’s for sure. And we conservatives could live without being carpet-bombed by Bernie juice 24/7, as depressing as that sounds.

However, it seems that some in the media are finally taking note of a Bernie campaign hallmark which media is calling the “Bernie Bros” problem, like online threats from Bernie supporters to silence or intimidate his other political opponents. Why the sudden concern? Because now he actually has some competition in the DNC. And because his supporters have seen this movie before and know how it ends. Call it bad blood or a family feud within the DNC. There is something for them to be paranoid about.

But Bernie’s campaign has always been dirty from the beginning. We know about it from 2016 in Chicago. We know how they operate in a cozy alliance with anarchists like Antifa. The Democrats usually love those operational tactics of the radical left when they are not targeted at them. But now they are. At least since the Bernie Bros tactics have gotten so prevalent against other Democrats, media is finally giving it some sorely needed attention. A little late. I mean this is what Bernie Bros do. In fairness, it is how Democrats in general operate. Just that Dems don’t like the threats and intimidation on themselves.

So on a Tuesday night town hall with Anderson Cooper, Bernie Sanders was finally asked directly about it. He magically condemns all bullying tactics, don’t you know? Bernie went into denial mode claiming he found some of those complaints, like those leveled by Culinary Union members, about threats hard to believe. To its credit, media have been reporting some of them. A lot of it happens online where Bernie Bros can single people out to attack them. Followed by other various forms of threatening contact. Face it, radicals are skilled in the art. But Hillary’s people were no angels on tactics in 2016 either. This time Bernie’s people are preemptively spoiling for a fight. Actually, radicals have learned these tactics work and have never been held to account for them, until now anyway.

That makes Bernie’s blanket denials and faux ignorance about it so laughable. He knows. Sanders told Anderson and the crowd that he found it hard to believe anyone in his campaign would do such things because his is the campaign of unions and much of their base is unions. It would not be possible. Then he branched out to other campaigns do bad things. He did go as far as condemning bullying. But we all know the Berie Bros’ tactics are used and incorporated in his campaign. We’ll see more of it this year into the convention. Democrats and media only seem to be waking up to feeling the real Bern of Bernie Bros.

On another matter, Bernie claimed in 2016 he received 25% of support from conservative Republicans. (from all conservatives or of his total support is unclear) He suggested getting more and thinks there is plenty of common areas. He said conservatives would probably agree with a 15-dollar minimum wage, prison reforms, his healthcare plans and funding college education. Really? But these hardly sound like any conservatives I know.

That could be his wishful perception. Socialists and commies typically resort to deception to get people to buy their ideas. And it requires a good illusionist to work the scam. When it all aligns the right way, they get willing dupes to sign on. The other key ingredient is using anger: at the system, at other people, at the rich, at institutional greed. That brings home the bacon. But it only works until the audience gets onto the gimmick. At that point, it requires cognitive denial of reality and then you are only along for the ride.

He also said he would win because of the largest voter turnout in history. Socialists and commies will deliver the largest voter turnout, take it to the bank — or from it?

So the Bernie Bro thing is real, and so are all the tactics. He continued on by bashing corporations and their ability to make money. He says he will hold them accountable. What does that mean, really? We know what it means in socialist or communist regimes. Work with the government or we’ll consider you an enemy of the state, and set about destroying your business, means — or both. (sounds like the the Bernie Bros’ campaign tactics.)

Then he talked about creating a big-government, FDR-type jobs plan in the aftermath of the sustainable new green deal’s economic slaughter. He doesn’t agree with welfare limits. He encourages more new teachers to have an influence on kids. He sees a day soon when no teacher makes less than 60k. Thanks to Bernie Bros. He can never hide the effects.

How about all those economic controls? Feel the burn!
If you aren’t feeling the burn yet, you just aren’t feeling.

Smooth Swamp Operator

Deep in the vestiges of the habitat known as the DC Swamp, trolls the last remnants of this dynasty like no other. They were bathed, baptized and weaned into the Swamp culture. It was their established ecosystem.

Every region has its own tales, either myth or legend, of all sorts passed down through local residents. No one may know the exact source of these stories. What is important is that they are — or in the words of locals, that the stories themselves exist in fact or fiction for each person to make his/her judgment as to legitimacy.

Taken with a grain of salt, or swallowed in whole detail, it is up to each to accept, reject or dismiss these taller than life tales. Some people reserve judgment and would rather not say one way or another. Some people are quick to pronounce a verdict or their own theories about them. But most at least have heard of the legends.

The mystique about them seems to take on a subculture of its own. In some cases, they are only tall tales started by someone sometime. In other cases, there is substance as basis for them. Some were jokes and others were far from it. It really is a mixed bag. These tales live on to become part of the heritage of locals.

But in one such case, at least, there have been rumors and stories for decades that were not completely confirmed. All of them revolved on the very idea of a Deep State working on its own will within, which permeated the basin known as the Swamp in DC.

Many of us believed in the idea and many rejected it with a vengeance. But it was a topic of debate based largely on hearsay evidence and speculations. Opinions ran the gambit from belief to absolute denial. And those of a particular view were branded conspiracy theorists or tin-foil hat dupes. It was seen more like taboo or voodoo.

But in this type of debate there never really was a right or wrong view. All were welcomed and were all treated with a fair amount of skepticism – from deniers to theorists. No one could claim victory with certainty.

That is until recently. No longer can the topic be only dismissed out of hand. But a conversation about it all has still not been forthcoming. I wonder why?

Well, old habits die hard. Old opinions have deep roots with tenuous attachments it turns out. It is hard to dismiss something you have vehemently denied for decades, much less dignify it by talking about it. It is rather inconvenient for deniers to admit to. No one relishes being duped. Some can simply pretend it has not been exposed. Now the truth is finally out there.

But ironically within, for the group that makes up this network of Deep State, everyone knows how real it all is along with how much power it wields. That is not disputable. In fact that is the whole point of it all. There is a collective pride knowing they are the movers and shakers who matter in the realm of power. Even creatures of the swamp know their own habitat. And they know it well.

No one would ever convince this Deep State they did not exist or were not a real power. They would chuckle at the denial. It would not be controversial to them. They see constant proof of their affect and thrive on it. The more overt proof is the more pride in it.

And the only thing that could threaten them, or the habitat that spawned them, was a negative outside force opposed to their existence. One cannot oppose something if one does not acknowledge it is there. Confronting it was never something anyone was willing to do before. That really was taboo. After all, Deep State has the means to fight back and is quite willing to use it.

The swamp has its own scorekeepers and enforcement mechanisms. It is a sovereign environment where the only enemies are outsiders who might venture across its path. Deep State deals with opponents the way it sees fit. When you are the enforcers, you are granted special privileges. But their first priority is always to protect the ecosystem of the swamp. Thus, it becomes a self-supporting, independent environment of its own, accountable really to no one – especially outsiders.

How could anyone even contemplate dismantling it? The Swamp would evolve to suit its own survival whenever threatened anyway. No doubt many who did venture across its path just decided to leave well enough alone. Plus any other outsiders would not necessarily believe in one’s dilemma. That would be to admit it exists, which people were not willing to do. (Openly at least)

Along came the movement and then presidency of Donald Trump. They had no illusions about the reality of Deep State or the Swamp. It had been seen in things like Benghazi and was working its will in the Hillary server and ‘pay to play’ investigation. It was behind the scenes in the IRS scandal targeting conservatives. And we just knew, without doubt, which political side it was really on. It never seemed to oppose Democrats. It always covers for them. Nope, no questions about its existence.

The further Trump’s campaign went the more obvious the power and influence of Deep State became. And when he was elected, all hell really broke loose including a prepackaged insurance policy designed to blow up his presidency. It not he has the final say.

The beauty of their system is it is hard to point to one culprit when it is coalition of now radicalized operators within, skilled in the arts of using government for their own swampy interests, to serve their personal gains.

The smooth swamp operator is the combined concert of parts and people serving the political interests of the Swamp. Besides, when would the ecosystem that created it all, in their various capacities, ever fight back against the habitat? So they confidently troll on.

Division: stick a fork in it or just stick it

My, time really flies or does it? This week should tell anyone all they need to know about the current situation. Desperation and destitute.

  • The Super Bowl Sunday
  • Iowa caucuses go rogue.(results not clear till Friday)
  • Impeachment closing arguments.
  • State of the Union address
  • Pelosi’s meltdown and Democrats’ protest
  • Statements and impeachment vote in the Senate
  • Trump acquitted on articles of impeachment
  • Prayer Breakfast
  • Thursday, Trump thanks supporters and outlines this full-term coup
  • Friday clean out the NSC in White House (Vindman brothers fired)

And by Friday afternoon, Rep Debbie Dingell told CNN how divided we’ve become and that we need to unify the country. She said social media was so polarized and hostile.

But they just impeached and then tried to remove the president in a trial literally 2 days before. Now they’re lecturing us on unity? See a pattern here? Cause and effect.

The most divisive thing they could do to the country. How’s that for chutzpah?

They spent 3 and 1/2 years investigating the president and ripping the country apart — by overturning an election and rigging the next one, trying to get Trump off the ballot. Abolish the will of the voters. Now they want to complain about division. Right on schedule.

Give me a break!

But that is why you can never believe a thing Democrats say!
It is usually the opposite. All lies.

Welcome to the Grand TZ of Twilight Zones

In a strange and sinister plot, Democrats claim to be saving democracy while trying to destroy the Republic that made it possible.

They make a mockery of the very elections they claim to be protecting. With every chant about cheating in the election, they say the election and the results will be poisoned if Trump is allowed to stay in it. So cheat the election by impeachment.

These are people who did not accept the results of the last election hell bent on denying the results of the next one, before the first vote is even cast.

Where are you Rod Sterling? We have just entered the TZ of Twilight Zones. Chris Coons tells a CNN reporter that he thought Adam Schiff’s closing argument – to be generous – was “compelling and very forceful.”

It is a coup. They generally are forceful.

Democrats responded to the defense argument that it is an election year with months before an election, when people will decide. They claim this argument is ridiculous that you can’t impeach a president before an election. In fact, they say, the pending election is the reason he must be impeached and thrown out of office.

Rod, we could use you! Of course Democrats’ arguments sound forceful; it’s a coup!

Culture Caldron

Every so often one has to reflect and do a little culture check, the crazier things get.

Leave it to Trump, in one statement, to frame the entire issue in a campaign speech.

From a Des Moines, IA rally, Trump said something like “we are living in the greatest years now in history…. and I just got impeached. Can you believe it?” He got laughs and cheers. They got it.

Think about that analogy a minute. So finally, the economy is really on the upswing, opportunities and wages are up. There are a lot of good things happening.

At the very same time, you look what is happening around you and you can’t help wondering what has gone wrong? I mean the crazy things happening with the anger toward Trump and his supporters. People are desperate to take him down.

Government is running amuck in the Swamp fighting back. Deep state is in a fever pitch.

Yet there are plenty of good things on the horizon, life is good compared to the last ten years. Or it should be. What is with all the mixed signals aimed at us?

On one hand, things are finally improving that we’ve only hoped for over the years. But it is all dampened by this cultural turmoil over everything.

Then we’re told the world only has a few years left. Is it down to the countdown yet? Everything is rotten if you listen to these triggered, crazed people. So the secular world is telling us we are on the verge of apocalypse. Now that is rich, coming from that crowd.

Any joy you should feel is bombarded daily by this message of doom and gloom from Democrats and media. There is so much pent up hostility in them that you wonder if they are living in the same world you are, and seeing the same things?

It’s kind of like Trump, who wins the election only to have them try everything to throw him out. But he won’t go and neither will we. Why should we have to?

What’s wrong with this picture? It is a real dichotomy.

On one hand, there should be plenty to be happy about but the last thing they all want you to be is happy. They really try to make that a challenge.

It seems like Democrats’ job is to make mud pies out of all the good things or destroy them. And they have their hands full trying on that mission.

Here are you and I with everyone else, sitting smack in the middle of this whirlwind of discontent. Plus many of these dissatisfied people believe socialism is a panacea that will take all their worries away. Crazy.

If they can believe in some socialist utopia, then they need help. (not the kind they want)

They just seem to want to bring everyone else down to their misery. It looks like we are the ones who have to live and deal with it because it doesn’t seem to matter to them.

So in a crazy way, Trump is right. Life is great, they want to impeach him and throw him out. Ha ha, as if that would fix any of their problems!

Extortion of Process

Let me explain just one part of how the Democrats plan to use the impeachment process to serve their political ends. You know the masters of scamming the process.

It goes like this, as described by one Democrat Senator to CNN: first the Democrats put on their case. Then president’s team puts on the president’s defense.

But unlike in a regular trial, there is no opportunity for the House Managers’ rebuttal to Trump’s defense. What to do? Then the questions period closes out the process.

So — this is the great part — according to the Senator, Democrat Senators will use their super nifty questions period that follows to do that partisan rebuttal work against Trump. What part of this process is not politicized, hedged and schemed by Democrats?

And you know what that will look like. All the activist Democrats, House Managers and Senators, will operate at peak collective strength, using their corrupted and highly partisan process for maximum political benefit. All hands on the coup deck.

Yet all the while they chant the words “Trump is cheating in the next election.” You cannot even trust the results of the 2020 election with Trump in it. Wow, now they’re already undermining the next election 9 months ahead of it. Only to save quid-pro-quo Joe.

Our elections are very frail if just the inclusion of Donald Trump can destroy them.

After all they don’t care about the amount of damage they do to the country. not at all. The only thing that matters is their political objectives. Come hell or high water….and it will.

The America Gets It Dems Don’t – Debate

While the whole world is not watching, Democrats continue to debate themselves over the finer points of buying votes. In this greater theme, it was more like a steel cage match of Socialism vs. Communism. So far it usually seems to end in a draw.

Some people may say “you seen one Democrat debate you seen them all.” I sort of disagree because they are always trying to up their ante with the public. These candidates are the vacuum cleaner salesmen of the 50’s, trying anything they can to get your attention, to sell you a product you probably don’t want and can’t afford.

All framed under the rubric of everyone needs it. Just pick your preferred delivery means to get it. Sorry, no other options are available now. But a full compliment of accessories for their machine is being planned and built. And can Democrat candidates accessorize?

I have a new name for Democrats: the “we’re all socialists now” party. We can dispense with all that nonsense from over the years that they are not socialists and do not endorse socialism. At least now they are transparent about what they are.

It’s only a question of Marxist socialism or unabashed communism. They know it is considered forbidden fruit but it is so appealing to them. The gentle nudge tactic has given way to what amount of force is necessary to bring it all about? They are open on that question though have decided that the quicker the better. Like global warming, the time for debate is over — that is if there ever was one.

Of course, within this series of debates, it always comes back to how to pay for all these votes — I mean things. To that end, there is one dominant answer lurking: we just need to take a little more. Then they rattle off a list of top targets they plan on taking it from, for starters. But eventually it will come from everyone else, too. Only they need you to think there is some magical mine from which they will harvest all this necessary money.

By the way, it’s time government takes over the manufacturing of drugs as well.

So these salespeople of socialism will be back knocking on your door, again and again, with a can of dirt in one hand and a collection cup in the other, telling you “we just need to take a little bit more and then we’ll be good. Promise!” But you’ll love all the attachments.

Wicked this way comes

If Nancy Peloci uses Unconstitutional means to try to remove a president from office, then that is the same as the coup they have run for 3 years. It is not legal or legitimate.

That brings us right to treason, no matter how glamorous one tries to dress it up.

So just the fact that she tried to step in to further contaminate it by attempting to gain control over the Senate proces, is only more icing on the Unconstitutional cake.

And frankly, Madame Speaker, I’m sick of it! She obviously cares nothing about the Constitution and even less for the people of this country and our election process.

Intelligence Flip Flops

Trump was blamed for 3 years for not listening to intelligence. Now he responds to a real threat based on actionable intelligence and the Left goes berserk. In fact CNN’s byline now is question our intelligence first. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a Reaper Drone strike.

Indeed, all Democrats say they want to see the evidence and intelligence the president used in making the decision. They also dismissed killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It turns out that there are suddenly a lot of arguments that can be made for not following our intelligence. Shall we say for NOT acting in real time to take out a major terrorist actor in the midst of rolling out attacks against the US.

Who thought that was possible?

It turns out there is so much to question about intelligence, much less what to do with it. I only wish everyone had the same interest in protecting US interests and in our national security. Wouldn’t that be nice? But they don’t; and let’s not deceive ourselves.

Our basic argument against Obama on Benghazi is that he didn’t do anything. In fact he did the opposite. He stood down any response to the attack. He should have had to explain it but he never did. Actually the whole thing was a cover up and lies by Susan Rice.

Incidentally, in the aftermath of the Qassem Soleimani strike, who was the top analyst CNN brought on to talk about it? Susan Rice. In a rational world of media coverage that would be irrational. And it would have no credibility.

Whom did CNN bring on next to talk about retaliation threats from Iran against the US? That would be FBI’s discredited former General Counsel, James Baker and Dep Director Andrew McCabe. Later, James Clapper rounded out their coverage of the experts.

Democrats are blinded by politics and their hatred for Trump. Those same people who never answered for the failures in Benghazi. Never mind that attacking our embassy is an act of war. They can ignore that.

How long till the left throws intelligence under the bus? But what a shame that Benghazi didn’t even merit a whisper campaign. That denial went on for years — same people.

Personal Value VS. What Culture Says

I might try to explain a little about me and hopefully make some principled point along the way. Even if it seems consistently dull, there is a good reason for it.

Some people may wonder why I occasionally put up music on a pretty partisan political blog? The answer is a little complicated. But I confess both are personal interests.

No, besides interests, I also like to use music sometimes to make a political point. I confess to doing this. I know it doesn’t always go with the point very well. I prefer to think of it as punctuation like a period or exclamation point at the end of a good sentence.

This doesn’t mean the music goes exactly with the text. It is an aid. But it can accentuate the text. Some people would like to marry politics and music. That repulses me. However, there are times music can make a political point, if there is some deeper meaning to it. So I normally frown on conjoining the two.

The other issue is music and politics are both a part of our culture. I am not a creature of popular culture and do try, except for basic traditions, to avoid being sucked into the cesspool of popular culture. Some people prefer to swim in it or dive into it as a rule.

But I admit to succumbing to music, lots of kinds, even if it is seen as popular culture. That’s because I see it as an art-form or expression – not for cultural exploitation.

For example, you could be surprised how anti-culture I am. I still do not have a cell or mobile phone, which causes me problems anymore. I still use a PC computer instead of a laptop or a mobile device. In fact, normally I am among the last to join any trend, say on doing certain things. All of those may cause more problems than it avoids today.

I don’t particularly wear my politics on my sleeves or talk about them much in public. There are exceptions. I stay out of popular culture battles except where the social, political and principled points are on the line. I admit that can be frequent. So I am a bit of a counter-cultural warrior.

I believe in living out one’s faith as best he or she can against a tide of social and cultural woes or norms that make it unpleasant. And I will not let inconvenience or blowback for it deter my path. Actually that is society’s way of influencing one’s beliefs using popular criticism, culture, or political correctness.

With all those things, you can assume in many areas that is swimming against the tide today. But it should be a healthy swim rather than a reluctant, tiring one — else they are winning. ‘They’ meaning the left and their popular conceptions of current culture. I accept that, if objectively weighed, they do appear to be winning the battle in the short run, just as fake news seems to daily .

It is the closer look at things I am more concerned with. I hate the idea that knee-jerk reactions determine narratives or even events. I believe people should be, and generally are, smarter than that. And doing so is to fall into a trap.

I think and expect the right – whether it is a political side or moral principle – will eventually win. I think it is our job to pursue that right. So I believe a valiant effort is necessary in trying to achieve it. I think that effort also has a value.

I believe that the Declaration of Independence says eventually our battle is necessary to correct the current politics and an out of control system itself. Immediate correction cannot be practically expected. It did not happen overnight. It will take energy and effort to correct it, even if that is only a goal. It is still a noble one.

So I may be guilty of delving into the culture of music. But it is not cultural to me. There are still lessons to be learned by exploring it without falling prey to popular culture. I have seen one concert in my life. I am not a Grateful Dead, or any, groupie.

I am also not a movie buff. I haven’t seen many classics. I never had time to watch them. I appreciate comedies though also see those more as an art-form and not of popular culture.

Now those could all make me a boring person by some standards. Maybe it seems boring but makes a statement. I like to try to read intent or purpose into something as much as possible. Practicality can be a virtue.

Enough right there to put me at odds with most popular ideas today. Yet it is my retreat and sanctuary. I believe it has far greater value, at least to me, than following popular trends. But I do write about those trends to critique them. I find them funny and of little lasting value. Some are curious.

I believe one has to find and seize a (greater) value from not conforming to trends. Politics also appears littered with popular trends today. For instance, socialism uses popular trends like a tool to manipulate the mob. That makes it dangerous.

All this is why I detest mob mentality and rule so much. Our founders understood the threat in that. Does this often make me a loser, or at least seem like one? Yes. I would rather be considered a loser by others if a winner is being part of a socialist mob club.

And for these personal reasons, I believe that is what makes conservatives such a target because they have strong independent beliefs. But there is a great untapped power in the consensus of conservatives. We should all work harder to that end by joining our efforts.

I’m not crazy, just following the rules

I sort of wonder what is going on and what is next on the list today, since everything is now politicized anyway? It’s interesting to see what stuff Leftists come up with and how fast.

I think I’d like to play the game the way the Left does. Every time they do something I don’t like, we tell them the ocean just rose another 1/4 inch because of it. And yes, we did not yet switch to the metric system and we are still getting by. Thank goodness.

So every time they do something I don’t like, wham, tell them they just shortened their own life expectancy. They are costing the planet a few months. Can we keep that up?

Trump announced the government will no longer continue an agenda against light bulbs. You can buy the light bulbs you want. Well that should be a problem for Leftists. I wonder what fear they will hold over us for that? That just shaved 50 years off the life of earth.

What will Trump think up or do next? No wonder he is dangerous. He makes the Left think up all these crazy new threats based on what he does. So maybe they will tax thoughts next? Stop people from creating new ideas and thereby extend the life of the planet.

And to protest that new tax, I have an idea. They say solar flares are our next big problem. We should fight fire with fire. We build a machine that shoots flames at the flares to burn them up before they can harm anything. We’ll need fuel for it. How about we use those same self-sacrificing leftists for the fuel? That way we cure two problems at the same time. They do say they don’t want to live in a world with all this new innovation and its freedom going on. We’re ruining the planet. Anyway, I see more than enough fuel for the job.

Well, it’s either that or we just scare them to death with what we are going to do next. It doesn’t seem to take much. How else could I assist them in solving problems?

That reminds me, the twitterverse has been shrieking for a week over Trump’s comments about flushing WH toilets too much. Who knew conserving water was a problem to the left? Only when Trump tries it. Then he is like some crazy uncle saying “stop flushing the toilets all the time.” They’d rather see him as nuts than making sense… whatever that takes.

Last Word Against Impeachment

The speech not given. A parting shot.

Madam Speaker, I rise at this time to voice my opposition to this impeachment sham.

Irony is all around this sham. It is a dark irony.

I find great irony in the fact that the same body with the power to declare war was also given the power to impeach a sitting president, among its other solemn duties.

What if they use all those other powers designated to Congress the same way they are using this power to impeach? Rush to impeach. Fundraisers, storm the gates of the capitol. Impeachment rallies. “Impeach the MF-er!” What if the same hyper-partisanship was used in a rabid rush to war? Even for Democrats, this a new low.

Future voters, preserve our democracy, voting for children and posterity are their talking points. Nothing is further from the truth.

Do they tell their children in future generations that this was the day they stood up to overturn the election of the people? This was the day they had to act to subvert the will of the people. “We had to act.” This was the day the results of an election no longer mattered.

This was the opening salvo in the war on democracy.

You hear the same old tired Democrat platitudes “what is he hiding?”…”what is he afraid of?” Now it is time to ask them the same questions.

What are they afraid of…. what are they hiding? They are trying to hide this charade of a coup they’ve orchestrated and been engaged in since even before this president took his oath of office and assumed the office.

What they are afraid of is the will of the people. They keep on polling with the same results. Now they’ve just decided to go to war with democracy.

They are afraid the same president will be reelected again in 2020. This is only a partisan political hit job, like all the rest of their long drawn out plot, to either unseat the president or prevent him from getting reelected. So they’ve gone to war against democracy, again.

I find it ironic too that the organization founded in the aftermath of President Clinton’s impeachment screaming to “Move On” is the same group now organizing rallies lobbying the left to impeach this president. Isn’t that rich?

So Move On runs to the street organizing rallies with chants of “no one is above the law. The president is not above the law.” But what law; what law are they talking about?

Protecting democracy? They strategized this moment since the last presidential election to subvert democracy. Less than one year before the next election, they must take it out of the hands of the people to let them know Congress not the people will pick the president.

“We must act,” they say. They must act to prevent the president from using his power and getting reelected in 2020. They’ve moved up the date of the election to now.

And they trying to shroud this act of democratic defiance in an excuse that they are doing this for the people, to “protect democracy.” That they are doing it for national security? The only threat to our national security is this attempt to subvert the will of the people.

We all watched for years in the UK as countless lawmakers tried to tell people their votes didn’t matter. They do the same thing here.

But ask yourself, what are Democrats afraid of? What are they trying to hide? The answer is simple, they are afraid of we the people, us. They are hiding their entire anti-democratic agenda against the American people. They are hiding their coup and its fruition.

In fact, everything they have done is a part of the cover up for what Obama and our government did to interfere in the last election. Sure, they failed to prevent Trump from winning but they aren’t done. That cover up for what they did continues.

It is not about what did they know and when did they know it? They have known it all along. They were complicit in the biggest attack on our democracy in history, a bloodless coup. When? They started it from before he was even elected. They were so deep in it by election that even if they wanted to, they could not have stopped. It is a war against democracy. They planted the seeds, fertilized it, then weeded out anything that stood in their way of reaping the rewards of overthrowing the president. (by any means)

Hyper-politics and policy disagreements should not be the cause for impeachment.

But like its power to declare war, once used you cannot put that Genie back in the bottle. You can shout “we didn’t come here to impeach” from the roof of the Capitol. It doesn’t matter. You invoked it while feigning some Churchillian passion as you attempt to overturn an election. This is not what democracy looks like!

Democrats worry about foreign influence in elections. Say hello to your friend, Ukraine.

And so the Forgotten Man limps on still… in an all too real metaphor.

 

I yield back….
