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.

Timely Questions

Question of the day. A while back, this single-digit reader base would remember I promised to regularly probe some of the deepest questions of our time.

Well, I have one.

A 3-letter news channel interviewed Democrat candidate Michael Bennet. They were talking about Medicare for All, and eliminating private insurance, which he doesn’t seem to support. Bennet claimed Democrats don’t like it that much. They said but Bernie and Elizabeth Warren are getting lots of support. “How do you explain that?” He said ‘well, maybe Democrats are supporting them for other reasons.’ But Bernie is so popular.

So he claims they are supporting them for different reasons. Then he adds that Bernie is one of the most popular politicians in the country, and Elizabeth Warren has a star-celeb status among Dems, too. Naturally they are going to get loads of support, he says. He also asserted that “Medicare for All” schemes were not really plans but an entire ideology.

Now then, let’s reverse engineer that idea. I am old enough to remember when Bernie was a pariah of the Democrat Party. They distanced themselves from him like the plague, at least publicly. He was persona non grata as a member, let alone a credible presidential candidate. He wanted to annex part of New England into Canada for Pete’s sake. Even his incessant utterance of the word “socialism” was repulsive then to much of the Left.

They really did not want much to do with his craziness. Well, times have changed. One thing Democrats don’t count on is for people to have long memories. Bernie is now the most popular and notable Leftist among Democrats. He popularized the term Democratic Socialist and successfully applied it to most of the base. Times do change.

The real question is how did he go from that old Bernie Sanders the crazy, to the new Bernie the trendiest politician? Yet he really did not change his ideas or beliefs. But there is the Left worshiping at his feet. So if anything new is happening on the Left, it has to go through Bernie first. How did he take over the Democrat Party and their base?

It cannot be argued that he is a radical. Democrats in general are radicals. But Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism, until someone knocks him off that socialist pedestal. It is his movement. From pariah to proprietor. He’s the gatekeeper to new and cool ideas. I don’t claim to understand it nor can I explain it.

Yet, like the great pyramids or the Sphinx, there he is in full regalia. An anomaly of our times. What of Bennet? He is now the outlier. He was as lost to explain Bernie’s popularity as the Sphinx. The good news for other radical socialists is they don’t have to go through a transition, they can get elected as instant socialist heroes now just like the squad.

Only somehow those are questions the 3-letter news channel cares nothing about probing.

Bernie the Hale-Bopp reject

Meet the guy the Hale-Bopp comet left behind….

Sure Bernie, just listen to his sales pitch.

The Heaven’s Gate cult — now there was a case study for “human solidarity.”

But they had nothing on old Bern. Bernie’s Gate anyone?

Lunatic Mainstream Living Large

I can’t choose but if I had to pick the theme song for the left, it would definitely be “Lunatic Fringe.” Well, until now. It was the perfect reminder of what Democrats are.

There is a potential in any theme to outlive its utility. So now even that one is a problem. They have moved past that point to mainstream lunacy. Now if you aren’t loony they marginalize you. Evolution is complete, messy as it is.

And there is no more fringe, you see. The crazies are not only in charge but everyone is crazy now — so who is left to complain? Crickets.

We all knew the day would come when lunatics would run the whole show. There could still be an occasional sideshow of moderation but now even that is being abolished. Dems don’t want any sane voices on the left to be heard at all anymore. The crazier the better.

When Claire McCaskill was running her last election trying to say she was not one of those Crazy Democrats, she lost. The joke was on her. They are really all crazy Democrats. But they are okay about it. Actually, they worked so hard to get there. (lyrics)

Lunatic fringe
I know you’re out there
You’re in hiding
And you hold your meetings
I can hear you coming
I know what you’re after
We’re wise to you this time (wise to you this time)
We won’t let you kill the laughter

They aren’t the fringe anymore. And we are getting past the laughter phase.

If the policies were not crazy enough already, the Pied Piper of socialism just announced that convicts in prisons should vote. Now this was just crazy enough that it made me realize the point is to mention this crazy stuff so rational people would make reasoned arguments about why that is not such a good idea. And they’d be right. But the crazies aren’t listening at all. They want it because it is crazy and so are they.

You can’t rationalize with that — without going into the crazy anyway.

But you won’t get too far
‘Cause you’ve got to blame someone
For your own confusion

Their daily deluge of euphoric crack has the effect that we can only talk about one crazy thing at a time. Well, like convicts voting. In areas with a large prison population, does that mean they can vote for the sheriff and the District Attorney? Let them pick judges too. Exactly, it also dilutes citizens’ votes and disenfranchises them. What an ironic, surreal proposal. Yet we will be forced to point out how absurd it is.

What’s even worse was right after Pied-Piper Bernie announced it, some of the other major candidates jumped aboard. Kamala Harris says it is a conversation we need to have. No, some things don’t even deserve a conversation, yet here we are. Dumb is just dumb.

So when is Bernie campaigning in Leavenworth because I want to see that? How do you pander to cell block C? Does everyone want to have their vote watered down by a convict behind bars, doing life for a murder or killing a cop? That’s the justice Bernie has in mind.

These ideas are so bad, and crazy, that you can really only take one absurdity at a time.

Remember his theme: our fundamental political and economic transformation. Makes you wonder how crazy his economic policies could be, you know, under the guise of “justice”? That’s the problem, they are selling all this craziness to us as justice.

We’re on guard this time (on guard this time)
Against your final solution

When they go to Crazy Red it is a challenge. But the time we can dismiss it as that has passed. If given the chance and power, all this and more become possibilities for them. No longer can we say “that can never happen.” They are crazy enough for that and more.

We all know you’re out there
Can you feel the resistance?

The resistance is to sanity. It might not be our “democracy” that really needs saving.

Update: inmates have voting rights in Vermont and Maine. And were never lost.

Democrat Dream Candidates

Identity politics has had a head-on collision with reality. It’s too early to know the full outcome yet. It seems the investigation is still underway. Results will take time.

Democrats have long played the identity politics game and 2016 was a perfect case. But a strange twist is happening they probably had not anticipated. And it might just affect the 2020 election and not in a positive way.

You know the rules and the way it works. Democrats only see identity when they pander to voters. Elections are the whole purpose, The group rules, individuals are just fuel.

So it has all worked in their political strategy the way they wanted it to. But the campaign is already heating up to decide which person. (at least I think they are all people) They have two old guys in the top slots for starters. That is Bernie an Biden leading the pack.

But both these guys are old and white, right? Well that doesn’t play well. There is no identity gimmick to that. The voices of dissent are already rising from their mob. They say it does not represent a preferred identity. They see room for one of the other identities.

S0 it got me thinking. Democrats also have that other identity game going. Actually, it represents more of a problem. They pandered to LGBTQs, gays or any of the others.

However, the trans community has also been playing identity politics. They developed a new thing I will call sexual choice. According to theory a person has the right to claim how he/she identifies, as a personal preference, which must be respected by everyone. Example: Bob decides he identifies as a woman and his new name is now Judy. It is all biology irrelevant so no matter what he claims is his/her accepted identity.

And how one identifies decides everything. No questions.

Now you have these two old white guys — not to forget Warren and Gillibrand. What could two old white guys need to do to spice up their identities? Maybe they could try the new identifies game. I mean it is all about preference, right?

Well, maybe Bernie could identify as a young male rapper? How about a young biracial male rapper? He does have a hand gesture going for him. Why not? What is preventing Joe from identifying as a Latino? Whatever they are comfortable with goes. (for as long as they are) And no one should be able to question their choice of identity, right? Joe might go with the female version to align it with restroom preference.

And that is the way this whole race could go now, using the left’s preference rules. Actually, under that standard they could even change identities again if they wanted. It is whatever works for them. Who could argue? Maybe the first gender-neutral candidate?

See how opportunistic this all can be? Why can we see a problem there but Democrat dumbos cannot, or will not admit to it anyway? That is where we are headed.

Looks like liberals have taken the 60’s sexual, counterculture revolution and kicked it up a few notches. Now everyone must play according to their preferences. It’s identity limbo.

The Case Against Medicare-for-all

Here is the reality of the single-payer as it is called, national healthcare plan for all. Or socialized medicine as we say. Welcome to the nightmare.

New York Post — By Betsy McCaughey — October 16, 2018

Sen. Bernie Sanders says that because Medicare is “the most popular, successful and cost-effective health insurance in the country” everyone should have it, regardless of age.

But watch out for the bait and switch. Truth is, Sanders’ Medicare for All legislation actually abolishes Medicare and Medicare Advantage, as well as employer-provided coverage, union plans and plans people buy for themselves. Every person will be forced into a mandatory, government-run system with the phony name “Medicare for All.” Whether you want it or not. The quality of your medical care will plummet.

Medicare for All will plunge hospitals into financial distress, exposing patients to dangerous medical shortages and forcing pay cuts on health care workers. New York hospitals and their workforce will get clobbered the worst.

But 16 Democratic senators, including New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand, and 123 Democrats in the House endorse the legislation. Have they actually read it?

President Trump warns that Sanders is “eliminating Medicare as a program for seniors.” He cautions that “hospitals would be put out of business,” patients will face “long wait lines” and seniors will “effectively be denied” care they need.

Sanders calls Trump a liar. Fortunately there’s a way to determine who’s telling the truth. The answer is in the 96 pages of Sanders’ bill. Here’s what it says.

Four years after Medicare for All begins, all private insurance will be banned (Sec. 107), and Medicare and other government health programs will be terminated, just as Trump said. Everyone, including illegal immigrants, will be enrolled in the new government program (Sec. 106). Newborns will be automatically enrolled at birth (Sec. 105).

On paper, the new program guarantees hospital care, doctors’ visits, even dental, vision and long-term care, all paid for by Uncle Sam. Here’s the hitch: Hospitals will be forced to operate under conditions of extreme scarcity, with too little revenue and more patients than ever.

Right now, Medicare shortchanges hospitals, paying them less than the full cost of caring for seniors. But hospitals accept the low payments, because they can shift the unmet costs to younger patients who have private insurance that pays more.

But in the new scheme, hospitals will be paid at Medicare rates for all their patients, not just seniors (Sec. 611). With everyone on Medicare for All, no cost-shifting will be possible. The rates will be 40 percent less than what hospitals could get from private insurance plans. The severe short-changing will throw hospitals into crisis. Meanwhile, demand for care will surge, because it’s free to all comers.

Hospitals will have to jam more beds into rooms and corridors, skimp on nursing care and make patients wait. Sounds like the austerity in the British National Health Service, only in Britain, the public has an escape hatch. They’re allowed to buy private coverage. Not under Sanders’ Medicare for All (Sec. 107). Those alternatives are banned. You’ll be trapped.

The gold-plated union health plan or Medicare Advantage Plan you used to have will be a distant memory, as you wait in crowded clinics alongside people who never paid into Medicare or earned on-the-job coverage.

In New York, the austerity will be magnified. Hospitals here have more debt and slimmer operating margins than elsewhere, making them less able to withstand cuts. Gary Fitzgerald of the Iroquois Healthcare Alliance warns that Sanders’ bill would “devastate upstate hospitals.”

Doctors will also be paid 30 percent less than private insurance would pay them. To keep their doors open, they’ll have to see more patients per hour. That’s bad news for seniors, who take up more time. Doctors will avoid them like the plague.

The Sanders bill is a labor fiasco in the making. A staggering 1.2 million New Yorkers work in health care, more than in retail or manufacturing or any other industry. When hospitals are paid less, health care workers will see layoffs and pay cuts, too.

Bottom line: Under Medicare for all, patients will suffer, seniors will be shunned, hospitals will fail and health care workers will lose. Who exactly is supposed to benefit, except the politicians?

Well, Democrats do a great job of hiding the truth, don’t they? Of course they don’t want you to know what it really is or what it really does.

Dems politicized the nations entire healthcare in 2010 on a party-line vote. Yet it was only phase one. This is the second phase of the final solution.

Then they want people to have to go to the polls and vote for their personal healthcare in every election. Politicians are in bed between you and your healthcare.

This illogical nightmare while they extend it out to illegal immigrants. No one is supposed to know, or care, about the consequences. Just keep going back to vote for the hacks.

Who are the real beneficiaries of this?
