Personally, I think we under-appreciate the tendings of history per se, and that tending these days is the set of circumstances adding up to a Long Emergency, a.k.a. the Fourth Turning, a.k.a, Mr. J.M. Greer’s Long Descent. In plain English, we’re exiting the techno-industrial fiesta of the past 200-odd years and entering the uncharted territory of what-comes-next, and that is driving the immense anxiety of the age. Our business model for everything is broken, mostly because the fossil fuel situation has become so uncertain, and it is driving us nuts.
When the last two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth” appeared on the country’s economic radar, the Administration’s Official Humpty Dumpty Economic Seal Team dove headfirst into the ankle-deep waters of the media to declare that definition no longer operative, if it ever was. Of course, a Recession would spell very bad news for President Dumpty whose poll numbers are lower than his son’s morals. Not good news with the dreaded mid-terms less than 90 days away.
As the socialist experiment fails, its practitioners must make a choice. They can choose to return to capitalism. Or they can double down and commit to full-blown communism – state control of everything. That’s why the Dems are feeling hopeless. We’re at that fork in the road. Returning to capitalism would require the Dems to admit that they’ve been wrong about everything for the past 90 years (when the New Deal was started).
It’s understandable that Pelosi wouldn’t exactly be thrilled at the prospect of posing for pictures with someone who not only illustrates her rapidly eroding grasp on power, but who also flies in the face of her party’s narrative on all things victimhood related: Flores is a Hispanic female, a legal immigrant, and an unapologetic conservative. Simply stated, Mayra Flores is Nancy Pelosi’s worst nightmare. But does that justify Pelosi elbowing out an adorable ten-year-old as if she’s Charles Barkley in the paint?
Democrats Love Abortion, But What About Those Foreign Countries They Adore So Much? Where Do They Stand On The Issue?
True to form, abortions are indeed legal in Sweden, and they are in fact considered a “right.” Fair enough. But there are conditions. You are only allowed to have an abortion until the 18th week of pregnancy. If you want to have one after the 18th week, “you need permission from Socialstyrelsen,” at which point that collection of doctors and medical officials will require the woman to have “special reasons,” such as a risk to her health.
As a result, and coming as no surprise to anyone other than Democrats themselves, Americans are vocally rejecting the Democrats’ socialist, climate alarmist, and racist agenda. In virtually every demographic that is tracked – including a remarkable renunciation of their policies from Hispanics, traditionally one of the most loyally Democratic groups in the country – Americans are abandoning Democrats in droves.
In one of the greatest political bait-and-switches since they successfully projected their ugly, racist past onto Republicans, they have used the language of Liberty to describe the termination of a pregnancy: “It’s a personal, private decision between a ‘birthing person’ and its doctor,” It’s none of the government’s business,” and the ever-popular, “my body, my choice.”
The new petroleum trade routes to China and India will eliminate any leverage the EU has over Russia. Necessary commodities for European society are now controlled by the Russian neighbor who they have ostracized and is in no mood to bend the knee towards the New World Order. Since the Mediterranean countries have already been stripped of their assets by the EU central bank, there is no reason to continue their alliance with the Fourth Reich.
Fortunately for Florida, and indeed for all Americans, DeSantis succeeded in defeating Gillum the last time around, even if it was by only 34,000 votes. Because, while Ron DeSantis appears headed to a landslide victory in November in his quest for a second gubernatorial term, Andrew Gillum may be headed to prison.
No doubt you’ve heard the old saw: “The only way to keep a secret is to not tell anyone.” As the mid-term elections approach, with the euphoric anticipation of a “Red Wave” sweeping Blue Dems out of the Swamp and into the Sea of Bad Memories, you would think even the Stupid Party would be extra careful not to ruin things by doing stupid things. But you’d be as wrong as Republicans are stupid.
One habit common to most of us and especially of parents dealing with children is to try to present the conclusions without elaborating the underlying processes we went through to arrive at the final result. The usual result is that we get ignored or dismissed. Many have described the process as being like teaching a pig to sing. The attempt is nearly always unsuccessful, and it annoys the pig.
It’s worth noting that not only did the Republican’s financial victory haul happen with the media’s thumb placed firmly on the political scale in favor of Democrats, it also happened despite Democrats’ having the bully pulpit. President Biden can own the news cycle if he chooses to and possesses the biggest and loudest megaphone in the world. But for last month, much of that rhetoric fell on deaf ears.
Elon Musk came around because the Democrat party thought it would be a good idea to continuously piss off the richest man in the world, (and Trump). But the Democrat party can dump on Bill Maher all they want to. They can attack kindergartners for being slave owners, they can force transgenderism on kids and make parents the villain. They can ignore thousands crossing the border illegally every day. They can raise taxes, they can crash the economy. But you know what? Like a beat-up wife that won’t press charges, Bill Maher won’t step up until the Democrats have beaten him to death.
That red bunch of treasury-hijacking pirates, calling themselves Republicans and their payoff lobbyists ghouls are salivating at the prospect of a war in Europe. Two of our good ol’ Texas boys, John Cornyn and Dan Crenshaw (to name just two of the loudest) sailed off with Mitch McConnell to Ukraine at the taxpayers’ expense and are salivating at the thought of the Military-Industrial Complex opening the champagne bottles for WWIII.
But Musk is a pragmatist – a brilliant pragmatist – and he understands the need for freedom of speech if a nation is going to thrive. It is that stance, along with his ongoing attempt to take over Twitter and undo their far-left censorship, that has put Musk squarely in the crosshairs of the Democrats and their media. That conflict has now reached a new level with this fascinating recent admission from Musk.
Meanwhile, hardships-upon-hardships pile up at bewildering volume and speed in this-here federal consortium of states. No baby formula for you, non-aborted birthing persons of America! (And yet, what bureaucrat in which Deep State burrow organized a baby formula airlift to the Mexican border for the relief of foreign interlopers of the birthing persuasion?)
On Wednesday, Joy Behar, co-host of The View, suggested that women in America should commence with a “sex strike” in retaliation for the Supreme Court decision. On Thursday as a follow-up to Behar’s suggestion, a Blue State Conservative/Trending Politics poll showed that 101% of American men strongly supported Behar’s commitment to refrain from sex.
So, as bad as Biden is doing, it’s the numbers relating to the Congressional ballots in November’s midterm elections that are the priority. Therefore, the key question asked by the poll of 1,377 adults was this: “If this year’s election for Congress were held today, which party’s candidate are you more likely to vote for in your district.” And when we analyze the data from the responses to this question, the results are staggering.
Why didn’t the Democrats just leave Trump alone when he left office? He probably would have faded into obscurity had they done so. No doubt, he would still be screaming that he was cheated. But even if he was, it would have come across as pathetic. Nobody likes a sore loser – not even one that was cheated. But the anti-hatred party couldn’t turn their hatred off that easily. They have hounded Trump to the point of absurdity and kept his name on the front page.
So, conservatives, particularly Southerners who have not sold their souls to Republican yahoos or Democrat socialist/communists watch as the braggadocious Republicans, the Fox Channel-type pseudo-historians (presentism clods themselves) ballyhoo about great Republican red waves into the land of “a new beginning.” The other “media” conglomerates, meanwhile try to reach new minds with some new nonsense about some old nonsense or some new degeneracy that appeals to them.
When confronted with these arguments, the critics almost always retreat with the statement that, “At best, we’ll waste a lot of time and money to create an amendment that the government will ignore just like it does the rest of the constitution.” When the critics say that, they are asserting that our constitution is already dead, and we are no long a republic.
The Democrats are looking at less than nine months until the Red Wave hits them in November. They are in a deeper hole than the Patriots were against the Falcons, but there is no Brady on the field and no Belichick in the White House. This year, a diverse team rather than a competent one will sink the Party. Biden cannot ditch any of these people as it will offend a fringe group. He is stuck with his lousy team and has no plan.
The fentanyl flooding our country and killing 100,000 users last year comes from China. The relationship that Biden and Hunter have with China, and the money their family is getting, does not allow them to stop the flow of the killer drug. Their relationship with China handcuffs us from doing anything against the will of China.
The one constant throughout time for Baltimore is Democrat control. Since 1930, over 90 years, there has only been one Republican Mayor, and that was for two four-year terms. Like many of the deteriorating big cities in the country, like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, they have been loyal to their Democrat leadership. They have not been rewarded for this loyalty.
For European, Japanese, Korean tourists etc., the visa issue is not a huge concern. But for others who need a visa it’s a significant obstacle. Imagine people from say China or India struggling to get a tourist visa showing months of finances, and going through an interview, then coming all the way to see a country with more potholes and violent crime, with homeless people taking a poop on the sidewalk. Mexico, Brazil, China, and India send the most tourists from the countries which require a visa.
