It has to make Maggie “I vote with Biden 98% of the Time” Hassan happy and unhappy. When she proposed that gimmick, her press sold it as bucking her party, but that ship sailed, took on water, and sank. Almost everyone inside the beltway with a (D) after their name feels a bit like a deer staring down the headlights of an onrushing November election. If a gimmick keeps them from gasping for their last political breath in a rhetorical ditch on November 9th, they’ll embrace it.
Democrats can’t admit that cities like New York and Chicago with their oppressive gun laws have a problem with gun violence because the gun control for which they advocate is supposed to solve those problems. And neighborhoods such as Harlem, where advocates push to ‘defund the police’ and then move out to safer neighborhoods to avoid the violence, are supposed to be peaceful and harmonious.
Irvin isn’t the first black person we’ve seen Democrats attack for the sin of being Republican. We’ve been seeing the phenomenon for ages, and has recently become even more frequent. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott was despicably labeled as “Uncle Tim” last year for saying that our country isn’t racist; which it isn’t. Democrats go after Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Earle-Sears at every opportunity, most recently in the wake of the Uvalde shooting.
Last week’s episode of Lorenz committing the very sin of which she accused her own detractors resulted in extensive criticism from those on the right and in the political center. But Lorenz and others on the left can’t hear those critiques. Reality has no place in the land of the left, a region that is dominated by the clowns on Twitter, and herein lies the catalyst for a complete lack of self-awareness.
The Democrats also benefitted. It turns out that the executives of those mega-stores donate predominantly to the Democrats. It’s part of their partnership (see crony capitalism definition above). In the 2016 and 2018 election cycles, 93% of Costco employee (mostly executives) donations went to Democrats. In 2012, the CEO of Costco even spoke at the Democrat National Convention.
The differing ways in which Democrats and Republicans are treated is striking. When Trump tells his followers “To peacefully, patriotically make your voices heard” he is accused of calling for violence. When Giuliani states an intention legally to take Trump’s opponents to court, he is accused of calling for violence. And so on. By contrast, “Democrats” call for real violence, rapes, assassinations, punching people, etc. It is in fact an important question why leftist ideologies of “tolerance” and “inclusivity” produces such vile unhinged, often infantile, hate. Many of these people literally need help.
The truckers are trying to make a difference while the teachers’ unions have seized the Pandemic to leverage more money and power. There are some school districts where teachers have yet to return to the classroom. Billions of dollars were earmarked in the stimulus bills for education and upgrades to schools, some not to be spent for years to come. But this is not enough for these greedy bureaucrats.
Climate change replaced the term, “Global Warming”, when it was clear to anyone that it was colder, not warmer. Here, we’ve had record frosts for days. Last year’s disaster in Texas, where federally funded “experts” decided to shutdown many fossil fuel production flows during weeks of freezing weather seem further evidence of pig-headedness in pushing (too fast) alternate energy.
These self-appointed moralists appointed themselves the “final arbiters of science and truth,” and they now use that to justify their “right” to censor dissent and demand that we all goose step to their “truth” too. How are they still getting away with that? Easy. No matter how obvious their hypocrisy, they never stop acting as if they own the “moral high ground.” The moment they are exposed, they expect you to give them the pass they’ll never give you. The following list is hardly complete but is overwhelming in its scope.
Joe Biden, the Kid from Scranton, is spending the Thanksgiving weekend with Billionaire friends on Nantucket. I have a friend who lives on Cape Cod and would love to get up on his plane this weekend but not with the President enjoying his time on the island. The TFR, temporary flight restriction, will prohibit any private flight in the area until Biden leaves the Cape.
His participation in the “Saturday Night Massacre” during the whole Watergate saga was explained in a rational way to show the danger facing the Justice Dept. Though hesitant to fire Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox and saying he would quit were he to do so, he eventually acceded to requests from Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus. He did so to save the Justice Dept. and the country.
Mostly, we have to accept that things will get ugly, maybe very ugly, and we have to prepare to give back just as ugly as we get. For the foreseeable future, that’s almost a certainty. Get yourself and your family ready for the worst. Fix your mind to the fact that life isn’t the same now as it’s ever been for any of us, and it isn’t going to get better anytime soon. It certainly won’t get better if we lay like doormats while Antifa and their puppet-masters roll over us.
What I mean to say is that they’ll be tearing through that should-be-privileged material trying to find communications that prove Trump was complicit in organizing the Capitol breach. Even more exciting to them is the possibility that they may uncover something indicating Trump considered some form of actual insurrection against the illegitimate government that was about to be installed on that day…a real, honest-to-goodness smoking gun.
They have morphed from the Party of the People to the Party Over the People. They are no longer the party that supports unions. For now, they are the party that is controlled by the unions. This transition is very sad to observe. Most of our parents grew up supporting the party of JFK. If JFK were alive today, he would not recognize the New Democrat Party.
Joe Biden wants us to believe that Facebook is responsible for “killing people” by allowing Wuhan Virus and vaccine “misinformation” on its platform. This is, of course, yet another lie from today’s leader of the Democrat Party. However, when it comes to death and misinformation, Joe Biden should know of what he speaks.
The only racism coming from this debate is from the left. If you put forth the idea that minority folks in Georgia are less capable of acquiring and then remembering their IDs on Election Day, then you are the racist. If you claim that minority folks in Florida won’t be able to ensure their absentee ballots are received by election officials without such assistance, then you are the racist.
Shouldn’t any field called “political science,” have laws rather like those of physics that accurately model behavior? I’d like to propose an alternative set of political laws.
Ultimately, Democrats need bad news for their strategies to work, and the worse the news is the more Democrats like it. A full blown crisis is the best news possible for Democrats.
If you’re a resident of New York or California, however, and if you vote Democrat every November without giving the decision a second thought like so many do, you’ve got no one to blame but yourselves.
As my friends complain, I keep reminding them that this is what they asked for. They’re beginning to realize they helped create this mess and they’re feeling a bit like that guy that gave the Nigerian prince $1,000 — embarrassed!
When did politicians and federal employees start calling themselves “public servants”? Even more importantly, why are we letting them?
It’s one thing for children to stick their fingers in their ears when they don’t want to hear unpleasant opinions and information, but it’s quite another for grown-up billionaires to force silence on those with whom they disagree.
The Democrat hypocrites create stricter and stricter rules to deal with the phantom menace of COVID but then refuse to follow those rules themselves. Democrat mayors and governors shut down small businesses, didn’t let spouses and children mourn the passing of loved ones, ruined the academic experience of millions of students, and wrecked the dreams of many more millions of Americans.
Being on the left means never owning up to mistakes. Rather than admit defeat, these governors publicly continue the charade of public safety while privately enjoying their lives.
