Loony Leftids Update

Not really Napoleon: just another Democrat candidate for Emperor

As I waited for the comment contest winner to emerge, a brief visit to Free Republic gave me another pair of breaking news stories.

The Washington Post and CNN are upset that President Trump has installed a $50,000 golf simulation room in the White House. Buried in the depths of the story is the fact that Mr. Trump paid for it with his own money. Guess who would have paid for a golf simulator for President *Batteries Not Included. You can find that person in the mirror.

And you may have heard that Amazon was going to open up a great new corporate headquarters in New York City, complete with jobs galore–but no. As of today, Amazon is pulling out due to what they’re calling “a backlash” among NYC leftids. With bartender-turned-Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez leading the charge, they scared Amazon off with a lot of intemperate speech about “exploiting the Workers” and making too much money. New Yorkers didn’t need those jobs after all, did they? They must be happy to know the Green New Deal crowd is protecting them from working.

Maybe they can get jobs counting genders.


Swedish Politician’s Just as Crazy as One of Ours

“What? You let the peasants vote???”

I feel better, now that I know my country isn’t the only one with loons in public office.

Sweden’s foreign minister went on a tear the other day, tweeting that Sweden “cannot forgive” British leaders for allowing their people to vote on Brexit (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/02/14/swedish-minister-claims-democracy-decline-rise-populism/). And also “populism” is a threat to “democracy” and Europe’s gotta have “an offensive for democracy” to stifle all this populism.

Populism, and allowing the people of a country to vote on stuff–why, that’s un-democratic! I mean, really, what kind of democracy allows the people to vote on things?

The kook from Sweden also raked Hungary for a new public policy of offering tax breaks to Hungarians who have children. Hungary, she said, should be “ashamed” of wanting to increase its sagging population by having more babies. The only right way to do that, she babbled, is by shipping in hordes of Muslim immigrants. Yeah, that’s worked out really well for Western Europe.

And also there should be global nuclear disarmament. Nobody allowed to have nukes but China, North Korea, and Iran.

This woman is Sweden’s foreign minister. You gotta dig her diplomacy.

Do not expect any good to come of allowing idiots to run your country.


Insane Abortion Law Dies in Committee

(Thanks to Phoebe for the news tip)

Yesterday Virginia’s proposed law to allow the abortion of babies as they’re being born died a quick death in committee, after nationwide public outrage convinced the state legislators to back off (https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-abortion-rights-and-moral-wrongs-20190131-story.html).

Some of us were so busy charting the outrage, we missed the bill’s failure in committee. Well, it’s not so easy to keep up with the nooze, these days.

I have a degree in political science, so I’m supposed to understand stuff like this–but I don’t. Not this time. Why in the world do Democrats even think the American people would be okay with the idea of murdering babies as they come out of the womb?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t people American citizens, with the rights of citizens, from the moment they are born in America? Or is there some John Kerryesque nuance that says you can kill ’em as long as, say, one leg is still inside the womb? How would this not be the premeditated murder of an American citizen? That’s the part I don’t understand.

No one shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, the Fifth Amendment says. What–unless he or she is only a new-born baby?

Why did Democrats think the nation would allow them to do this? Are they mad? Or just so blinded by evil that they can’t think straight? Do they really think it’s okay to bushwhack a baby as he’s being born?

I must’ve missed the day they covered that in class.


Venezuela: National Meltdown?

Juan Guaido: survive and win, or fail and die

Venezuela’s “socialist” dictatorship, founded by the late and unlamented Hugo Chavez and continued by his sock puppet Maduro, complete with a ruined economy and people scrounging for food in unlikely places, like zoos, has been rocked by riots this week and may be on the verge of going belly-up (https://www.apnews.com/52bb7f774bc94f439df0606eb96bab4e).

The United States is backing opposition leader Juan Guaido, who will either survive and win, or fail and die. Guaido has declared himself president. Maduro, backed by Russia, China, Iran, and other international bad guys, says he’s going nowhere. Some of Venezuela’s top generals have pledged their loyalty to Maduro. Why does that remind me of George Steinbrenner saying “Bucky Dent is like a son to me” just before he traded him?

A Prediction: If Maduro is overthrown, watch for wailing and gnashing of teeth among the American Left–aka the Democrat Party, Hollywood, and the nooze media. They’ll say President Trump connived to oust their favorite left-wing dictator and redouble their efforts to oust our president. They’re going to carry on like maniacs.

You’ve got to give the villains credit: they stick together.


When You Don’t Know How to Make Peace

Christ Pantokrator, Ruler of All (Cefalu Cathedral, Italy)

When I opened this blog, here on Christmas morning, the first thing I saw was a couple of readers–one Christian, one Muslim–fighting over Israel vs. Palestine.

My first impulse was to try to make peace. Like maybe I’d succeed where everyone else in the world, including career diplomats who do it for a living, has failed.

I’d like to think we could discuss any issue here, as long as we conduct it decently; but that’s probably a pipe dream, too. People have emotions. That’s how it is. Israel vs. Palestine is a highly emotional issue for a lot of people. I doubt I can entertain that topic here and expect everyone to remain calm and civil. After all, there are many blogs that I don’t choose to visit–because I know I’d wind up saying, er, intemperate things.

As a Christian and an American, I am predisposed to favor Israel, an American ally with institutions similar to our own. There must never be another Holocaust. The Western world permitted the Holocaust to happen; it must not permit another one. God has not withdrawn His blessing from Abraham.

There will not be peace in this fallen world until God the Father in His sovereign might puts all things under Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of all. Until then, we muddle along as best we can. Occasionally we get something right. But not often.

So I have deleted the posts I’ve gotten on this subject today, and will delete any future messages on this subject. I don’t know how to referee this fight, and if I try, I might just make it worse. I’m sorry about doing this, but I think it’s for the best.


The Coming Democrat Civil War

Image result for images of two rats fighting

As a reporter, I used to cover a township in which the Republican Party, for all practical purposes, did not exist. But it didn’t matter. The township’s Democrats had split into two rival factions that made anything that went on before it look like a love-in.

It’s possible we may see that, in the not too distant future, on the national scene.

On one hand you’ve got the Far Left Crazy crowd, spawned by that old serpent, Bernie Sanders–out-and-out socialist. Indeed, the long psychotic episode that is liberalism has brought this crowd into an embrace of preposterous and suicidal policies–“open borders” and “transgender,” to name just two. Knowing no civics at all, they think their capture of a majority (not a very big majority) in the House of Representatives will empower them to do all sorts of things–erase the borders, repeal the tax cuts, bring back Obamacare in all its glory, impeach the president, vice president, and anybody else who gets in their way–which the Republican Senate can effortlessly stop them from doing.

Unable to get their way, their frustration will reach the point where it must erupt. And before it blows, they’re going to aim it at somebody.

On the other hand you’ve got the older, Nancy Pelosi, Mask of Sanity Democrats, wedded to the slow, incremental transformation of America into a socialist hellhole. Don’t laugh–incrementalism has gotten them very far. They’ve learned that the best way to go about their business is to painstakingly bamboozle the American people. And in the meantime, the legislation they can’t pass… wait for some Democrat judge to rule it into “law.”

The problem with this is, it takes time: and meanwhile, Donald Trump is appointing federal judges and the Senate is confirming them. This drives the younger rats crazy. They burn to attack with teeth and claws–but the Mask of Sanity faction is in their way.

Look for the thing to blow sky-high in 2020, when the Far Left Crazy has some Open Borders wacko to nominate for president–with a transgender running mate–and the Mask of Sanity cabal sinks him or her or xer with some dirty tricks so they can run Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, or some other living fossil.

Gonna be some major fun when that happens!


Here We Go Again

I really hate it, every two years, having to pray frantically for my country–praying we can dodge yet another bullet. Last Election Day, 2016, we dodged a freakin’ cannonball. I say “we dodged,” but what really happens is, God spares us. And tomorrow is another Election Day already: another bullet that must be dodged.

Lord, we really are trying to push this country back onto the right course: and you’ve got to know how badly we need your help. The delicate machinery of our republic has been given up to rust and corruption for many years, and there are many people who will have it so. They own the nooze media, the education establishment, Hollywood, at least half the big business corporations… and they own the Democrat Party. And they tell us, right up front, that what they want is “open borders” (quick quiz: name a country, any country, just one, that actually has had open borders–betcha can’t!), transgenderism, strangulation of the national economy, more abortions, the authority to throw people into prison for not believing in Climbit Change, purposeful corruption and politicization of all agencies of government, and a general suppression of the Christian religion. We know they’re for these things because they’ve said so!

So again we pray: Lord, you know who your enemies are: please smite them. Blast them with a great defeat that will keep them out of power forever. You know what they stand for, you know what they’ve done, and you know what they mean to do if they ever get the chance.

Deliver us again, O Lord, out of the hands of Democrats–I was going to say, “and other Far Left Crazy loons,” but it seems all of them are in the Democrat Party now, so saying so would be redundant. Deliver us, O Lord our God; in Jesus’ name, Amen.


Our New Form of Government

Image result for images of 3-headed monster ghidra

Time was, we had a constitutional republic divided into three branches, legislative, executive, and judicial. That’s still on the books; but in practice we have a whole new form of government, as yet unnamed, under which we live.

It, too, has three branches: the high courts, the news media, and the Democrat Party.

The Party decides what is to be. The media, along with our schools and colleges, tell the public what is to be, and why it must be, and that anyone who opposes it is a biggit and a racist and a hater. And then the high courts ram it through.

The new form of government keeps the outward appearance of the old. There’s still an executive branch, but its personnel function in opposition to the president and their chief role is to subvert the president. There’s still a legislative branch, but its only function is to rubber-stamp tax increases. And of course there’s still the court system, to hand down “laws” that could never enjoy enough public support to be legislated the old-fashioned way.

It need hardly be said that our new form of government is not lawful. The Constitution is the law of the land. On paper. In practice, the new government makes up the law as it goes along. Which really isn’t “law” at all, as civilized nations have always understood it. But hey, if it works in Venezuela, it’ll work here.


Dems’ Teen Wiz Kid Bashes Old Folks

Image result for images of david hogg obnoxious

Democrats are great at creating monsters that go on to ravage our society. Our only comfort is that sometimes the monsters turn on their masters and bite them in the ass.

David Hogg, the obnoxious 18-year-old anti-Second Amendment jihadi, raised to national prominence by opportunistic Dems seeking to take advantage of the Parkland school shooting, has turned on his creators. His quote for the day: “Older Democrats just won’t move the f*** off the plate” (https://www.newsweek.com/parkland-survivor-david-hogg-calls-politician-age-limits-older-democrats-just-1082296). Young Hogg finds it challenging to construct a sentence without an f-bomb.

The little prig went on to abuse Democrat grande dame Nancy Pelosi for being “old” (she’s 78, but if she was any brighter at 18 than she is now, that would be astounding). He has called for laws putting an age limit on serving politicians and political candidates.

He’s too young to remember what happened to Cindy Sheehan after she bashed the Democrat establishment: headfirst into oblivion.

How long will they let him bite the hand that raised him up?

Prediction: Octavio-Cortez will be the next to chomp that hand. And I don’t need a crystal ball to see that coming.


When All Else Fails, Exploit the Children

Image result for images of children begging

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.
