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.

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.

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]

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.

Democrats’ yellow brick road to tyranny

My suggestion to Democrats would be come back to reality. But I don’t expect that happening anytime soon. They’ve taken decades getting here.

I do wonder though why every day they are just out to prove that is not possible? It is not bad alone to have the Democrat party, but as a collective it is evil in what they do.

Sadly, you cannot attribute the same characteristics of a person to a party. That would be a mistake. But that is exactly what many on the Left try to do to Republicans. You know how they constantly refer to the party, how Republicans should do this or stop doing that, as if they were appealing to a single person. It is one way they shame Republicans for being out of step with the party.

Well, on the left, party is all they have as a collective. It’s where the power resides. Because individual persons are powerless and/or insignificant. Individuals only have relevant meaning and power within the Democrat party. They really don’t make any bones about that. It is their driving purpose to give power to the voiceless and powerless. And they believe in keeping those people voiceless and powerless without the party.

So, that said, how is it they have those like AOC and Omar doing what they do and no one challenges them? We seem to be struck by the phenomena but it fits entirely with the party. They have taken over the reins of the party apparatus. You can argue about that but it is true. They proved the significant flaw with the party. Someone can rise through leftist tripe and ascend to the head of the party — even without election. It has been proven, first with Bernie and now with the Squad. In fact that was the objective of the Social Democrats’ “Justice Democrats”. Takeover is their objective.

You don’t see the same thing with the Republican party. Oh the Democrats project that theory on Republicans. It is not a reality though, someone doesn’t just hijack the party. They say “but Trump…” No, it’s not the same. If I have to explain it there is a problem.

But it is a simple process on the left. All one has to do is present ideas and incentives to entice people to support him/her. Offer them college tuition, reparations, money or benefits, rights, or power over others for their support. Bernie did not invent the formula though he was only perfecting it to fit his objective. Now he boasts about it.

I saw an interview with Pennsylvania voters that illustrates the hypocrisy of the left. The Democrats were enraged by Trump. They said why doesn’t the party rein him in, he is out of control? They said he needed to be stopped and of course they blamed the Republicans for not standing up. Nazi comparisons came in and they branded him a racist.

But then when the same Democrats were asked about what they thought of AOC and the squad, with their statements and animosity against America, they all agreed AOC’s Squad were a good thing. Two of the four expressed they were refreshing and just what Democrats needed. One black woman said she wants them to shake things up. She said it was what Dems needed. See the difference?

They love Democrats acting that way, but Donald Trump is a racist who needs to be controlled. And they did not have any idea they were contradicting themselves. Nope. They wanted more radical talk on the left while condemning language on the right. In fact, Dems want to impeach Trump for his words.

But as soon as Trump focused on the substance of their radical talk, they were enraged and claimed it has to stop. You see what is going on there. We all do. The truth becomes their number one enemy. And Trump represents the truth in the most dangerous form to them — a threat to their radical existence.

Stop The Instinctive Naivete

Joan Rivers used to say, “can we talk?” America, can we talk? I have about had it with our conservative or Republican brethren, while meaning well, putting on pretenses about what the left says. It really is sickening and naïve.

This is an instinctive reaction for some people. Just stop it! That is ignorant.

One of Hannity’s favorite talking points about the 2016 election is how media fell for the Russia hoax story. Can we dispense with that bullshit now? Mark Levin called Hannity on that one night. He told Sean no, MSM were in on it all along and were part of it. But they never just “fell for it.”

After his 2020 campaign kickoff, Trump did an interview with Hannity. Sure enough, Hannity reflexively used his talking point that media “fell for” that charade all the way. But immediately Trump disagreed and corrected him. He said MSM knew and were in on it, but they didn’t “fall for” anything. Why does our side do this so often?

AOC just made statements that, in fact, we have concentration camps on our border. A particularly nasty comment. So Fox talks about it and Laura says she is dumb or those comments aren’t right. She is shocked at how media are defending it. But the MSM and Democrats feel compelled. Let them defend it, or try.

Let’s get this straight, she said exactly what she meant to say. Don’t attribute it to some misstatement. And don’t expect her to apologize. It was entirely intentional. The reaction was predictable because she intended it. The comment was inflammatory by design. Being provocative is in their DNA as radicals. It is what they do. Who can attribute it to error? They get the desired benefits. Again, it is their M/O; it’s what they do.

That would be giving the media or AOC way too much benefit of the doubt. They are part of the radical strategy. Language is nasty because they mean it to be nasty. It is a form of sandbagging to misattribute their vile intent. It makes their sandbagging more effective.

Morality of the Beast

It’s a strange new world, and the religion of the left has taken center stage.

AOC lectures us about the morality of Climate Change, while they joyfully push for late-term abortion even infanticide as hard as they can. But we are the deniers?

Reality check! Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Politics of evil.

AOC’s Dream Campaign Cash

AOC’s Dream appears to have a few problems. Slushy season.

AOC’s chief of staff ran $1M slush fund by diverting campaign cash to his own companies

by Alana Goodman | March 04, 2019 | Washington Examiner

Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.

Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

The arrangement skirted reporting requirements and may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates, according to the complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Campaign finance attorneys described the arrangement as “really weird” and an indication “there’s something amiss.” They said there was no way of telling where the political donations went — meaning they could have been pocketed or used by the company to pay for off-the-books campaign operations. ,,,/

Bradley A Smith – former FEC Chairman: “You might say from a campaign finance angle that the LLC was essentially operating as an unregistered committee.”

Weird, uh? Let’s see if media can ignore the campaign cash dreams because they cannot ignore her Big Green Dream.

Of Loons And Train Wrecks

Is a train wreck still a train wreck if it doesn’t realize it’s a train wreck? (rhetorical)

I say that because some people and media seem to afford AOC a kind of pass simply because she doesn’t realize how dumb she sounds or stupid her ideas are — much less the consequences. I think that is a fatal mistake.

The answer of course is it is still a train wreck and will continue to be a train wreck, no matter how you perceive it or choose to think of it. The big ‘Green Dream’ is alive, too.

Something is not merely so ridiculous that it did not happen — only because it is ridiculous. Of course reality can be stupid at times and it can be a train wreck, even both at the same time. There are no mitigating factors to the physical damage done. It is what it is.

Cause on the other hand can be a deliberative debate over many contributing factors to it. But that does not change the final result, after.

I know we have a lack of common sense on the Left. But it is what it is. What consequences there are to that lack are already evident in a lot of places but they do not change due to the cause. Now maybe you could change the outcome of future events if you change the former. But you cannot change what is done.

This is the kind of light under which I think we have to look at AOC. We can laugh at her or react any way we want to but it won’t change what she is. It may be entertainment of sorts. Though I cannot dismiss her plans or what they will do out of hand, just because of the source. I’m done disbelieving what is now possible.

We had a similar thing with Obama. So many people dismissed what he could or would do. It turned out they were wrong. Now, faced with all that damage, the results do not change just because they underestimated him. Yes, I’d like accountability but that will not fix it.

Tolerance needs to be accountable, too.

We cannot underestimate the power of stupidity either. Dismiss it at your own peril.

We cannot suspend all the real consequences, or even analysis of these ideas, only because it is AOC. That is not how any of this works. Maybe she underestimates the will of the people but it does not change what her plans could do to America.

In this scenario, we are still a deciding factor over whether it can or will happen. But don’t underestimate our own stupidity either. (doesn’t matter why) We cannot stop it after.

Excuses or Alibis

In the end, if some of what she is pushing does happen, all we will be able to do is make excuses or point fingers of blame to why. But alibis will mean nothing. That is what makes all this serious now, while we still are a factor in the outcome. Blame is not going to matter. It is not serious because it is AOC, regardless what she thinks.

But what makes it serious is not because it is AOC or because the ideas don’t work, or that they are both stupid. Our big risk is not taking it seriously for what it all can do.
