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?

Coming Home

All my life I’ve been used and abused
At times pretty confused.

But I always knew I’d come home to you.

I’ve been down right uptight
And broadside accused
Slip-sliding through it,
Bent backwards too.

But I always knew I’d come home to you
I always knew I could count on you.

I’ve been places I didn’t want to go
And missed more than I’ll ever know

But I always knew I could come home to you.

I was down on my luck and plucked up by faith
More times than I care to share.

But I always knew I’d come home to you
No, nothing is true if I don’t have You.

3M Masks Stupidity

Maria Bartiromo rips clueless CEO Mike Roman of 3M over mask detours to America. Can you say lie? He has been caught red-handed. He can’t explain it.

Now 3M is posting on its Twitter that they are concerned about fraudulent and counterfeit products. Really? Here’s a hint: If it is an authentic 3M product, it went overseas!

***No masks here:

“As Chief Executive Officer at 3M CO, Michael F. Roman made $9,843,753 in total compensation. Of this total $1,049,976 was received as a salary, $1,431,503 was received as a bonus, $3,610,217 was received in stock options, $3,610,286 was awarded as stock and $141,771 came from other types of compensation. This information is according to proxy statements filed for the 2018 fiscal year.” — Salary.com

Christian Controversy on COVID-19

Christians are at the center of Coronavirus controversy for holding services defying gathering orders and social distancing policies.

In Arkansas, many cases were connected back to the same church service. Now the pastor issues a  strong warning to others to take this virus seriously.

In Louisiana, a pastor of Life Tabernacle church outside Baton Rouge has continued to have large gatherings even busing in people from other areas. He’s had multiple weekly services with nearly a thousand attending.

In Florida, a pastor has been arrested for holding services despite being told by authorities to stop, He held two services this past Sunday.

“I know that they’re trying to beat me up, you know, having the church operational, but we are not a non-essential service,” he told the congregation.

“Not only the right of free speech but the right to peaceful assembly and to practice what we believe,” he added. “Suddenly we are demonized because we believe God heals, that the Lord sets people free, and they make us out to be some sort of kooks.” (UPI)

While in NY, a Bishop’s wife has died of COVID-19 and 3 area pastors have tested positive for the virus. Two of them are hospitalized. Some congregations were reluctant to close doors. Clergy have issued strict cancellation orders.

I’ve read internet newsletters of pastors taking a stand of resistance against cancelling their services. Some of them are based on political and religious liberty stands.

Last week I posted the Ron Paul column on the the liberty aspects of the shutdown and bans, teasing the hoax theory. I see a libertarian strain to much of it — although some liberal-leaning churches were also reluctant to follow cancelling directives.

Here’s the thing: the traditional libertarian view was always for personal freedom as long as you are not hurting others. This freedom stand seems to fly in the face of that.

I listened to a libertarian-framed sermon on the internet arguing the resistance theme of following any orders. The pastor seemed to get cheers for taking a stand of defiance.

So  my personal view is we should comply with the directives. The state or federal government is not asking churches to do anything they are not asking of others on numbers of gatherings.(Weddings etc)

Maybe I am missing some salient point why these churches want to risk the health of others in the community? It does not only affect their members but countless others. Why endanger and put all those people at risk?

Creatures Of Crisis


It has become clear that we are not just fighting a war against a biological pandemic threatening the lives of Americans; we are engaged in a war with leftist orthodoxy that endangers the country we are trying to save.

We are fighting for survival as much from both sinister entities. Democrats have attached their leftist agenda to the Coronavirus pandemic like a host, and we have to defeat them both for the survival of this republic.

These are no longer, as Thomas Paine put it, times that try men’s souls. These are the times that rip men’s souls from their roots to advance an ideological warfare.

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.

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.

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.

China’s Coronavirus Recovery is ‘All Fake,’ Whistleblowers and Residents Claim — pundit from another planet

China’s claims of how it’s handling coronavirus recovery should be taken with more than a few grains of salt. Even before COVID-19 became a global crisis, Chinese leaders had been criticized for their handling of the situation and lack of transparency about the disease’s progression. Things now look like they’re on the upswing, and businesses […]

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.

Scuttle Coronavirus & Passing Gas

I could have written a longer piece explaining my thoughts about Coronavirus but honestly, who really cares? In fact, no one cares what media says about COVID-19 either. And you can’t blame them.

But there are two emerging problems: a biological problem and the economical one; the former caused the latter. Yet there is still a confidence crisis as well.

So what is there left to say? Everyone knows the story.

But there is something to say about young people carelessly worshiping the sun on crowded beaches as the rest of us hunker down.

We went from talking about socialism at the beginning of the year to taking about social distancing in 6 weeks. The only thing the left cared about on their radar was impeaching Trump – and politics in general.

So is it any surprise that they and their media comrades would play politics with a deadly virus? If even that could not break their psychosis of hating Trump, then it tells you all you need to know about the political left. They have no shame or conscience.

Now I see the glaring similarity between the sunbathing beach-combers and the media. The eat, drink and be merry youth don’t care. (middle finger on a T-shirt) The media reveals the only thing they are capable of is shameless gotcha politics, in reality denial.

But both have forgotten, or plain don’t give a flying shit, that the rest of the country is making countless sacrifices to help save others and stop a pandemic.

Why should we take either of them seriously anymore?

Meanwhile, the minute Trump doesn’t take the pandemic seriously, even for a second, it is treasonous. That is headline material.

Taking the RP plunge on COVID-19

In the spirit of public awareness and information I post this entire article. The reader will have to make of it what they will. (*emphasis mine)

The Coronavirus Hoax


Written by Ron Paul

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis.

On Face the Nation, Fauci did his best to further damage an already tanking economy by stating, “Right now, personally, myself, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant.” He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this?

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to wipe out these microscopic enemies?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.

Balls, Strikes, Winners And Losers

As the primaries go off across the country, in state after state, the media will be calling the results like usual. With all the pomp and determination that involves. But the people will be calling the real winners and losers this time – not the media tally boards.

Those will be the real results, like them or not media, because the arrogance of the MSM has severely soiled its collective reputation. But have no fear, the people will judge the outcome and it may not be pretty. Hold the confetti and champagne. We’ll let you know.

And the same people (us) will be there all the way up until the November elections to call winners and losers. Media may report elections, but the people will determine the real results this time. Thank you very much. Press can pretend to have the final say.

So that makes the press/media one of the biggest losers at the polls this election year.
Their cred is shredded. But we are still here and kicking, taking names, keeping score.

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?

How I lost my innocence in the halls of Congress.

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?

Difference between Bernie and Mike

Now for a Sunday Shorty.

What is the difference between Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg?

Let’s start with what they have in common.
They both want to buy the Democrat Party.

Mike Bloomberg wants to purchase it outright using his personal fortunes.
Bernie wants to buy it with Government taxpayer dollars. (so we pay for it)

Bernie’s deal will be the largest quid-pro-quo in history.
Mike’s could be the worst investment return ever.

Some say Bernie already owns it but they’re still haggling over the final price.
