Ever noticed how everything has changed?  Things are completely different than what they used to be like.  Of course, politicians in particular seem to have changed their stripes.  Today’s headlines tell the story:

 

Headline – Analysis: Democrats Represent The Rich While Working Class Flocks To GOP

Comment – The Democratic Party has abandoned the working class (particularly, the unions) in favor of the rich and powerful, including Silicon Valley, Hollywood, the media and the Deep State government. It’s very telling when an insider like the Congressional Black Caucus says that AOC is the poster child for the rich, liberal white elite.

Headline – Watch Tulsi Gabbard Roast Hillary Clinton: “I Stand Against Everything That She Represents”

Comment – Well, they are both Democrats and yet they apparently are polar opposites.  So, which one represents the Democratic Party and what does the Democratic Party stand for?

Headline – Maher: The Clintons Have To Go Away

Comment: Well, I guess we know who Bill Maher thinks represents the Democratic Party, and it’s not Hillary.

Headline – Democrat Ilhan Omar (Who Sleeps With Her Political Staffer) Defends Democrat Katie Hill (Who Sleeps With Her Political Staffers)

Comment – AOC sleeps with a political staffer too and she also supports Katie Hill…because birds of a feather flock together.  Where’s #MeToo when you really need them?

Headline – CNN Analyst Nails It: Dem Reps Committed Political Suicide By Siding With Pelosi On Impeachment Instead of Constituents

Comment – It’s a matter of conjecture at this point as to what the political impact is going to be.  One thing that I’m pretty sure of, though, is that politicians of both parties no longer represent their constituents.

California is ablaze today, but the politicians are incendiary.  Even AOC chimed in saying, “This is what climate change looks like.” There are a couple of problems with AOC’s statement.

First and foremost, there has been no climate change in California.  The summer was, in fact, quite pleasant.  The fires themselves were directly or indirectly man-made.  Light a fire and blame it on climate change.  Nice. Finally, the fires are almost impossible to control because of decades of environmental mismanagement by the State of California.

AOC went on to say that things will only get worse unless we reduce carbon emissions by half in the next ten years. What happened to us all dying in 12 years unless carbon emissions are reduced to zero?  Seems like she’s seriously backtracking here.  Furthermore, the U.S. has actually been reducing emissions, unlike the two serious polluters in the world, China and India, where carbon emissions are getting worse every year. Maybe, AOC and Greta Thunberg should consider taking their dog and pony show to China instead, where it might actually do some good.

Perhaps, however, they should just stop propagating their false claims of climate change altogether. After all, AOC’s former chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, has publicly admitted that the Green New Deal was not primarily about the environment; that it was about changing Western Civilization’s economic system. Guess who else agrees with him- the United Nations.  Referring to the Paris Climate Accord, Christiana Fuentes, former head of the United Nations global warming agency, said, “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model (capitalism) that has been reigning for at least 150 years since the Industrial Revolution.”  

 

Epilogue

The world isn’t going to be devastated in 12 years. Miami is not going to disappear in a few years due to rising sea levels (as AOC has stated) and brush fires is a problem that man has created, and can therefore fix himself. The kicker is that CO2 is actually good for the planet because plants/crops need it to grow. That’s a scientific fact. Besides, the average global temperature is currently much lower than it’s been for most of the last 600 million years. 

Some of the environmental problems that the world has experienced in the last 50 years or so were indeed man-made. Many of them, however, were created intentionally to promote a political agenda. That is, you create a problem and then when people demand a solution, you give them one, something that fits your ideology and goals. As environmental scientist Delgado Domingos said, “The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control …Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense.” 

AOC Unveiled

10/28/2019

AOC is a congresswoman, a social media darling and the face of the socialist movement in America. Recently, she came out and supported Bernie Sanders and made a personal appearance at his campaign rally. So, the big question is why Bernie?  Why an old, white man and not a woman of color? What’s the strategy?

Of course, politics is rarely what it appears to be to the unwashed masses. As a senior House Democratic aide said about AOC, “She’s only a woman of color when it’s convenient.” To make matters worse, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is at odds with AOC for targeting minority lawmakers.

The real strategizing in politics is about the backroom deals that create political alliances, even between rivals.  However, Bernie Sanders is dying, politically speaking that is.  He’s in third behind Biden and Warren.  Further, his age and his medical condition don’t help matters any.  So, why would AOC be interested in Bernie? Why? What’s in it for her?

To begin with, AOC considers herself as representing working-class people.  The problem is that her actions in Congress belie that, to wit:

  • She spearheaded an effort to keep Amazon from moving their offices to her home congressional district. As a result, her congressional district lost thousands of jobs that would have benefited the working class there. 
  • She supported a higher minimum wage which Harvard and Stanford studies have proved that a higher minimum wage hurts the very people that it was intended to help. 
  • Ditto rent controls.

So, if her public profile of representing the working-class is a smokescreen, who does she really represent?  Well, the CBC let the cat out of the proverbial bag when they disclosed that AOC was beholden to the white, liberal elite.  You see, in politics, it’s all about money and power. Politicians can get the power if they can get the money, as political campaigns are extremely expensive. The old adage is still true: just follow the money trail.

AOC’s campaign manager in her 2016 election and her first chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, helped to form the far-left Justice Democrats. AOC ran on the Justice Democrats’ platform, with their financial backing. You didn’t think that AOC came up with the Green New Deal did you? AOC is simply the cover girl with the Wizard of Oz lurking behind the curtain.  Chakrabarti’s politics is not about winning elections per se.  He has a much grander political vision. To be more precise, it’s about revolution – to fundamentally transform the country. The goal is have the government control all facets of the social, economic and financial lifeblood of the nation.

And, of course, the rabbit hole goes much deeper than Chakrabarti.

So, what does any of this have to do with AOC’s endorsement of Bernie Sanders? Well, it’s a political power play. The target is Elizabeth Warren.  Bernie is just a convenient pawn in the chess game. Everyone is playing 3-D chess.  Everyone except AOC, that is. She’s on a whole other level (4-D).  Warren is the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate and AOC wants a seat at the Warren table.  She wants to be the power behind the throne.

So, the talking heads, no doubt, will fill up the airspace with all sorts of pablum. They will wax elegantly about why Bernie and AOC make good sense. However, it will be just an attempt to obscure the fact that there’s another agenda at play behind the scenes.  It’s an agenda that you were never meant to find out about… but, of course, now you know.

.

It’s a great political double play combination: Clapper to Beto to AOC. The headlines tell the story.

Headline: James Clapper Admits Obama Made Deep State Officials Spy On Trump

Comment: On a CNN interview, Clapper said that it was okay to spy because the Russians were supposedly coming. I call it committing treason in the name of so-called “national security.”

Headline: Beto Says That Police Will Go Door-To-Door To Confiscate Guns If Americans Don’t Surrender Them

Comment: Of course, knives would have to be banned next because more knives are used to murder people than even guns.

Headline: Democrats Vote Unanimously To Protect The Syrian Border – But Zero Votes To Protect U.S. Border Two Weeks Ago

Translation: We want war and illegal immigration.

Headline: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Learns To Love War: Blasts Trump’s Syria Withdrawal

AOC says, “We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people.”

Comment: Innocent people? How about the lives of our troops? The only way to stop “endless wars” is to not commit the troops in the first place. What a sellout AOC.

Greta Thunberg says that the science is settled. So, why doesn’t NASA and the World Meteorological Organization agree with her?

Headline: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Proposes Zero-Carbon Airplanes

Comment: Good luck with running planes on anything but fossil fuel, especially if we only have 12 years left.  A good first step, however, would be to eliminate private jets. Unfortunately, the climate alarmists will never allow it because the elites, and the climate alarmists themselves, would lose their favorite means of transportation. Going to Davos, anyone?

Headline: Greta Thunberg In Iowa City: U.N. Climate Action Summit A Failure

Thunberg said world leaders are uncomfortable standing behind the science.

Comment: Actually, world leaders are uncomfortable standing behind a hoax, even one propagated by the U. N. itself. The reason is that they can see that it will destroy their own country.

Headline: NASA Admits That Climate Change Occurs Because of Changes In Earth’s Solar Orbit, and Not Because of SUVs or Fossil Fuels

Comment: It’s called the Milankovitch Cycles, for anyone who wants to research it.

Headline: Global Warming: Britain Braces for Coldest Winter in 30 Years

Comment: Some meteorologists are saying that the 2019-2020 cold spell could be as severe as the winter of 1963, believed to have been the coldest in 200 years (dating back to the last mini ice-age).

Headline: Top Level Climate Modeler Criticizes Nonsense of Global Warming Crisis

Comment: One of the world’s top meteorologists is Dr. Mototaka Nakamura from Japan who earned his Doctor of Science from MIT. He’s come out against the theory of global warming and the climate crisis proclamations of Greta Thunberg and AOC.

Commentary:

Recently, over 500 scientists and climate professionals wrote a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations appealing for an open debate on climate change. This is what the letter said:

“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation. There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent. There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm. We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”

And why does the U.N., itself, say that climate change has nothing to do with environmental science but rather is a solution to a political issue? And why do climate alarmists ignore what the U.N. has openly admitted themselves?

Quote of the day

“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Delgado Domingos, environmental scientist

The New Politics

10/08/2019

Politics is an ever-changing exercise in chasing windmills. It’s all about obtaining and keeping power, a game of identifying whatever political positions can get a politician elected. Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline: AOC Unveils Manifesto: A Just Society Means Rent Controls, Abolish Prisons and Welfare For Illegals

Comment: “Just” for who? AOC wants criminals and illegal aliens to have more rights than tax-paying citizens.

Headline: Hillary Cites Russia Conspiracy Theories In Case For Trump Impeachment

Comment: Is Hillary one of the few people who still don’t understand that Russia-collusion was a political ruse to interfere in the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary, herself?

Headline: Hillary Floats Putting Constitution In The Shredder

Comment:Plan B is to get rid of the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Commentary: If you’re wondering why I’m covering Hillary Clinton now, it’s because she’s now the preferred presidential candidate of some Dem donors and supporters. Biden will drop out due to all the scandals and Warren isn’t electable. So, the top Dems realize that Hillary is they’re best shot. Unfortunately, Hillary isn’t electable either, so what to do? That’s where the idea of “President Pelosi” comes from. She’s third in line of succession to the office of president. That is, if something were to happen to both Trump and Pence, Pelosi would become President and then could give way to Clinton. You may think that sounds like too much like a conspiracy theory, but there is method/logic to the madness. After all, why is Trump calling up the Marines?

AOC ran on a campaign pledge to end the war in Syria and bring our troops home. Now she is critical of Trump’s decision to do exactly what she had previously said that she was going to do. She tweeted, “We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people.”  

She’s either incredibly naïve or she thinks that the voters are incredibly stupid, or perhaps both. I guess our own troops don’t count as being “innocent people.” Instead, let’s save the Kurds, who quite frankly aren’t worth saving, and sacrifice our troops!

Our politicians (of both parties) would like nothing better than endless wars. The situation in Syria is being used to encourage us to start a hot war with one of our close allies and commit this nation to another quagmire like Iraq or Afghanistan and perhaps wind up in WWIII. Almost no one in the media is speaking out against the endless wars and they attack anyone who does. That’s what I refer to as Tulsi Gabbard Effect.

The other day Hillary Clinton floated the idea of shredding the Constitution.  It made me think back to the following headline:

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez Falsely Says GOP Changed Constitution To Block FDR From Re-Election

Comment: She could have just misspoke (FDR died long before the 22ndAmendment became law) or she could have been alluding to the Democrats wanting to change the Constitution to keep Trump from being re-elected. In any event, it’s the states, themselves, that have to approve of any change to the Constitution.

Headline: Antifa Calls For “America Is Cancelled” Protest

Comment: It’s only a matter of time before an Antifa protest results in someone getting killed. Circle October 10th on your calendar.

Headline: First Amendment Group Urges Ocasio-Cortez To Unblock Twitter Users

Comment: Perhaps, she would if she actually supported the Constitution; but she won’t, so the judge says see you in court.

Headline: Beto Admits That He will Forcefully Confiscate Firearms If He’s Elected President

Comment: Beto, plus Sanders, Warren, Harris etal.

Headline: The New York Times Declares War On Free Speech

Comment: They’ll have to get in line behind the many universities who already don’t allow free speech.

 

Humor of the day

SNL did a parody of a right-wing poll showing that 121% of respondents said yes to impeaching Joe Biden. The skit was actually funny.  However, it was all the left-wing polls who got the 2016 presidential election so wrong. And that’s no joke.

The news is unfit to print. It’s either fake news or written about fake people. Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline: Hillary Floats Putting Constitution In The Shredder

Translation: If you can’t overthrow the government by legal methods, then throw out the Constitution.

Headline: Elizabeth Warren Struggles To Get Out Black Democrats In South Carolina

Headline: Candace Owens: For Decades Black Voters Have Been Disrespected by Democrats

Comment: Clinton lost in 2016 because she didn’t get the black vote to the same extent that Obama did. The black vote for Trump in 2020 will be the crowning blow for Democrats as his support from the black community has skyrocketed (Blexit).

Headline: Dem Senators (and Biden) Threatened Ukraine Funding Over Trump Investigation

Comment: So, it turns out that the very thing that the Democrats are accusing Trump of, they’ve already done themselves (in conjunction with the Mueller probe).

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez Accuses Trump of Anti-Semitism In Attacks Against Schiff

Comment: First she accuses Nancy Pelosi of being a racist, and now this.  They also call Ben Shapiro anti-Semitic, even when he’s wearing a yarmulke.

 

Humor of the day

In the guise of humor, SNL urged that Trump be assassinated because impeachment takes too long. Maybe, like Schiff, it was just a parody.

Just another day inside The Beltway; politicians doing their usual shtik. The corruption is frightening. The Republic is dead. Today’s headlines tell the story:

 Headline: WaPo Calls Out Adam Schiff For Lying About Whistleblower

According to the Washington Post, “Schiff on ‘Morning Joe’ clearly made a statement that was false…He compounded his falsehood by telling reporters a few days later that if not for the [inspector general’s] office, the committee would not have known about the complaint… Schiff earns Four Pinocchios.”

Comment: Schiff’s lies are so egregious that even a left-wing media rag is calling him out.

Headline: McCarthy: Ignore The Hype – This Is Not An Impeachment Inquiry

According to McCarthy’s op-ed in The Hill, “The House of Representatives is not conducting a formal impeachment inquiry. To the contrary, congressional Democrats are conducting the 2020 political campaign. The House has not voted as a body to authorize an impeachment inquiry.”

Comment: And there’s an interesting reason why the House has not voted to conduct an impeachment inquiry and will not hold such a vote….

Headline: Nancy Pelosi’s Son Was Exec At Gas Company That Did Business In Ukraine; Nancy Featured In Company Video

Comment: So, the Ukraine scandal saga rolls on and is about to claim another victim. More to follow.

Headline: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explains Why Americans Should Give Welfare to Illegal Immigrants

Comment: Explain away, but this proposal is going to be dead on arrival in Congress. Even some Democrats won’t touch it.

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez Says Trump Impeachment Effort Is Boring: I’m Over It

Translation: It’s not going well. Lots of blowback. So, I’m going to distance myself from this political loser.
