When All Else Fails, Exploit the Children

Liberals can’t make up their minds whether they want to abort children or keep them around so they can exploit them politically. They’re addicted to both.

Having failed to get even the Ninth Circuit Court to uphold their Climate Change jihad, the Left has started another fire in another courtroom, this time with a lawsuit filed by 21 children in a federal court in Oregon, presided over by a left-wing wacko judge, claiming that the kiddies have a Constitutional right (!) to “a sustainable environment,” whatever the deuce that means (https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/08/02/kennedy-retires-supreme-court-lets-climate-change-case-proceed/).

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled to allow this exceptionally broad and nebulous lawsuit to continue, while warning the loopy judge in Oregon not to let it get out of hand. Which only means it will, and then they’ll have to step in and stop it.

Using children as human shields in any public controversy: I learned to loathe that tactic when I was a local news reporter in the 1970s. Every time the teachers’ union wanted more money, they trotted out the little kiddies to plead tearfully for their sainted teachers–who were already making several times the salaries earned by the poor sods who had to pay the school tax, plus three months off in the summer. There is something alarmingly abnormal about any child who doesn’t want to see a teachers’ strike and get a break from school.

Anyhow, this is what leftids always do. When you’ve got no facts to support your position, no truth that you can tell, it’s time to throw the children into the breach.

They’ll do it every time.


‘New Executive Order: “Target Behavior”‘ (2015)

From the bad, bad, bad old days of the Obama regime:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/09/16/new-executive-order-target-behavior/

I’m afraid too many people have already forgotten how bad it was, and how much more appallingly bad it would have gotten, had Hillary Clinton been elected to continue the experiment.

Government is supposed to be to us a minister for good, ordained by God, protecting us from evildoers and punishing those who have not been deterred from evil (Romans 13).

It’s not supposed to be an all-devouring monster.


More Blue Wave Shinola

So here’s how the Democrats plan to take back Congress in November.

It’s not enough just to have a tantrum every day for two years. No–you gotta have a plan. And Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), who says she’s an Indian but isn’t, she’s got a plan.

Roll back your tax cuts! (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/07/fake-indian-elizabeth-warren-suggests-50-democrat-tax-rates-calls-trump-tax-bonuses-crumbs-video/) Ain’t it a shame you have to wait all the way to November to vote for these people?

Warren, who pretends to be a Native American when she isn’t, told some noozie on CNBC that the tax cuts have got to go, and it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to replace them with, oh, maybe a 50% tax rate.

Hot dog! That’s almost as appealing as open borders! There’s just no stopping these Democrats. They know what we, the people, want! And we don’t want our freakin’ money.

Besides all this, Sen. Warren is a bona fide intellectual who used to be a college professor–prime presidential timber! But that’ll have to wait till 2020. The business at hand is to take over Congress and roll back those pesky tax cuts.

 


Democrat Religion: The Book of Collusion

Browsing around assorted news stories this weekend, and reading the comments from assorted readers, I think I have to say that Democrats are now wedded to the Russian Collusion Myth: that is, Hillary Clinton is the rightful president–yeesh, the Once and Future President, if you will–but she was cheated out of it by Donald Trump’s “collusion” with the Russians. It has been added to their scriptures, along with some verses declaring that no illegal aliens voted for Hillary, not even in California or Chicago.

Go ahead, ask them what form the Great Collusion took. Like, what did the Russians actually do? Government investigators swear there was no tampering with the voting machines and not a single vote was changed, or in any way affected, by anything “the Russians,” whoever they were, did. What did “the Russians” do, to cheat Hillary out of the presidency? And why would they not want to deal with a corrupt politician–that would be Hillary–whose cooperation they already knew to be always on sale? A big enough donation to the Clinton Foundation, and you get the nuclear launch codes. If anything, Russian bad guys would have wanted Hillary to be president!

But the Democrats sit down by the waters of the Potomac and weep. It’s so unfair! It was Her Turn to be president! Her turn! She simply could not have lost without all that Russian cheating!

I’m old enough to notice that Democrats never got this upset about Russian tanks rolling into Hungary.

It remains to be seen whether their faith in Her Turn is strong enough to move them to nominate Hillary again. Once more into the breach, dear friends! This time it’ll work! This time we’ll keep the Russians out, and this time she will win!

I hope they try it. I really hope they do.

 


‘Entering the Danger Zone’ (2016)

I wrote this a month after Donald Trump’s election.

I wish I could have been wrong about it, I really do. Maybe I ought to go back to baseball predictions. I can always get those wrong.


My Newswithviews Column, June 28 (‘They’ve Created a Monster)

See the source image

After I wrote this and sent it in, Schumer and Pelosi made some tepid comments suggesting that maybe, y’know, Maxine Waters’ call for Democrats to harass and intimidate officials was, like, maybe not exactly the best thing. It was hardly a rebuke.

I predict the Dems are going to get keelhauled this November.


Another Gem from Jess

Here’s another one from my chess buddy and good friend, “jessicafischerqueen.” She’s been on a roll lately. Let ’em have it, Jess!

jessicafischerqueen:
Necessary conditions to call yourself a democracy:

1. You actually need a real country, with borders and a government

2. Constitutionally protected free speech

3. The rule of law

The Social Justice Warrior Stalinist movement is violently opposed to all three. They don’t even try to hide it.


A Bit of Politics

Image result for images of freaked-out democrats

They just can’t handle it

I do love the way President Trump pulls the leftids’ chains.

As they gear up for the Great Blue Wave that will sweep them back to power in November, when American voters realize they’re really cool with Open Borders and all the rest of it, they freaked out the other day when the president said meaningful action in Congress will have to wait until a Red Wave blows out the remaining Democrats (https://twitchy.com/samj-3930/2018/06/22/reeeeeeeee-trump-calls-for-a-red-wave-in-november-and-the-resistance-totally-loses-their-sht/?utm_campaign=twitchywidget).

He’s right, though. Nothing good can happen to America until the Democrat Party is put out of business forever. They stop good things from happening. And they think the people are going to turn around and vote for them to turn the whole country into San Francisco.

I’m beginning, though, to understand those who say, of liberals, “Just let ’em talk. They’re their own worst enemy.”

And Mr. Trump sure knows how to keep ’em talking.


Gop Scare Tactics–Enough, Already

Image result for images of hiding under bed

Every day, without fail, I get emails from this or that Republican fund-raising group warning me that unless I send them money, the Democrat Blue Wave will swamp America, we’re all doomed. Not that they’re building an Ark or anything. They just want my money and are afraid to compose an honest message that says “We want your money.”

See, I don’t believe in the Blue Wave. Anyone with half an eye can see it’s a fiction brewed from wishful thinking by the nooze media, polls that way oversample Democrats, and GOP scare tactics as a fund raiser. The emails come from GOP Establishment types, bow ties and all, who never lifted a finger to help Donald Trump and would probably be more comfortable with Hillary the Stalinist.

I resent them thinking I can be made to believe just by mere repetition. It’s the political equivalent of Climbit Change. It’s fake. It’s poop.

As incredible as it seems, politics is actually growing more dishonest than it’s been. Every time you think it’s bottomed out, it drops another level.

I think this is because God is mad at us. And who can blame Him?


Blue Wave? What Blue Wave?

Image result for images of california tent cities

The whole nooze media is chirping about this Great Blue Wave that’s going to sweep over the country in the midterms and sweep the Democrat Party back into power.

I can’t understand why they’re so confident. Is the science of voter fraud that far advanced? I mean, what items in the Democrat goody bag are going to beguile the same electorate that put Donald Trump in the White House? What do they have to offer that we want?

California’s tent cities?

Open borders, sanctuary states?

Public funding for abortion?

Repealing the Second Amendment?

Throwing people into prison for Climate Change Denial? (Don’t sneer–it was on their 2016 platform.)

“Gays” deciding what artistic content you can’t create, or must create? (Supreme Court ruling pending)

Government promotion of the Transgender movement?

Which of these does any normal person look at and say, “Yeah, I want that”?

Or have Democrats simply charmed us with their behavior? The foul language–they sound like Linda Blair in The Exorcist–and the rioting, the attacks, sometimes physical, on anyone who dares to disagree with them, the threats, the masks, the vandals tearing down statues: is this what’s won us over? Or could it be Nancy Pelosi babbling, or Chuck Schumer saying that if we won’t elect Democrats, they’ll bring in people who will? Were those the magic words? Or is it the 24/7 college jihad against white Americans? Do we, the voters, actually enjoy being demonized and hated, and blamed for everything? Does racism appeal to us, when liberals do it?

How does any or all of this translate into some Blue Wave?

Never forgetting that the nooze media might be lying…
