It’s Not About the Climate! (Surprised?)

Another instance of “transformation”

In case you missed this story, earlier this month:

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ chief of staff publicly admitted that the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” isn’t about “Climate Change” but rather a “how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing” (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/aocs-top-aide-admits-green-new-deal-about-the-economy-not-the-climate).

Toldja so.

The goal, says O’Crazy-O-Cortez herself, is “reducing emissions through economic transformation.” If that does not sound ominous to you, demand a refund on your brain. This “transformation” (Can you say “Lon Chaney?”), she babbles, will create “millions of high-wage jobs” and “unprecedented levels of prosperity.” Oh–and it also includes a guaranteed jobs plan. Maybe those jobs where they chain you all together and tell you to break rocks.

If ignorance is bliss, these people must be downright orgasmic. Dude, we already have unprecedented levels of prosperity! You’d know that if you ever tried to live anywhere else, or knew any history. But libs don’t know those things. Besides, they expect themselves to wind up in charge of the new socialist United States.

So all this poop about the world’s gonna end in twelve years–they know it’s poop, they’re just trying to scare us into accepting socialism, with them sitting in the catbird seat and telling all us deplorables what we can and cannot do.

I am at a loss to explain why anyone in his right mind would ever think socialism was a good idea.


Dem: Spend $10 *Trillion* on ‘Climate Change’

See the source image

U.S. Centaur–oops, sorry, that should be “Senator”–Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Democrat who wants to be president, says she’s got a $10 trillion plan to Save The Planet From Climbit Change (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/07/25/kirsten-gillibrand-unveils-10-trillion-climate-change-plan/).

See, we gotta have “zero-carbon electricity in a decade” because Climbit Change is “the most serious threat to humanity today.” I thought the most serious threat to humanity today was white men. I know some other Democrat said that.

And the centerpiece of Gillibrand’s, er, plan is… wait for it… [trumpet fanfare] “enact the Green New Deal!”

Brilliant! Wipe out fossil fuels, the internal combustion engine (except for Important People’s limousines), air travel (except for Important People’s private jets), beef (except for Important People’s $10,000-a-plate banquets for Social Justice), and reduce the overall standard of living to that in which 12th-century Scottish peasants luxuriated.

If you’re even thinking about voting for a Democrat, any Democrat–get help now.


Am I Going Crazy?

See the source image

Urging little kids to “change their gender.” Fake news galore. FBI and CIA taking it upon themselves to bring down the president. Sex robots. And every aberration you can think of–all of it boiling out of the cauldron of the daily news.

Why do I even report it? Mostly, I think, because I believe we need to know what we’re up against. So that in next year’s presidential election, nobody decides to sit it out, waiting for The Righteous Candidate who doesn’t exist, or to throw away his or her vote on some quixotic third-party candidate who might as well be Mickey Mouse, for all the chance he has of winning. Either way, you help the Democrats. And the Democrats and their alleged ideas are the fountainhead of all this looniness–them and our so-called “education” system.

I’ve just written up the most concise report I could on the complicated shambles that is NXIVM–sex cult, money launderers, and all-around criminals with connections to the tippety-top of our country’s ruling class. Having been sick in bed all day yesterday, that job took a lot out of me.

Is it possible for the whole country to collapse–brought down by unbridled corruption, an amoral pursuit of wealth and power, and “ideas” that no one but an idiot or a lunatic would listen to for twenty seconds? (Example: the Green New Deal. Try that on for off-the-wall crazy.) I mean, why is anybody even listening to that whole transgender thing?

I’m a student of political science and history. Which is why I don’t believe a nation can be founded on sheer folly. Throughout history, whenever this has been tried, it has resulted in the destruction of that nation. Delusion makes for very poor public policy.

But the mess, the incoherence, is so massive! You wind up thinking, “This can’t be real, it’s gotta be me, I’m imagining it…” If only that were so.

Pray hard. It may be God will hear us.


Where Are the Gas Stations?

See the source image

Something screwy’s going on here in central New Jersey.

In my home town, all the gas stations, all at just about the same time, have gone out of business except for the two most expensive ones. Some of these had been selling gas since I was a little boy.

Venturing out of town, you can see the rot setting in wherever you look: gas station after gas station, out of business.

Uh, is somebody doing the Green New Deal here without asking us? Well, all right, true–they never ask us, they just do it. There are plenty of people driving our streets, a lot more than I would like–and hardly any gas stations. Are they thinking, “They’ll have to give up their cars, those peasants, if they can’t get any gas for them!”? This is a Democrat town in a Democrat county in a Democrat state, so there’s no one to defend us from the arrogance of rulers. Louis XIV said, “L’etat, c’est moi” (“The state, it’s me!”). He would’ve fit right in.

I don’t like being ruled. It’s not American. It doesn’t belong here.

We need to do something about it.


‘Are We Encouraging Insanity?’

See the source image

R.J. Rushdoony was asking this question in the 1980s and 90s, before we had anything like “transgender” to contend with–to say nothing of “world is gonna end!” climate change, or a “Green New Deal.”

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/videos/are-we-encouraging-insanity-our-threatened-freedom

This essay can be found in a collection, Our Threatened Freedom, published in 2015 and featuring some nooze gems that will tax your power to believe it. Like the four or five full-time agents assigned to bust a little boy who was selling fishing worms without a license. I helped edit the book, and wrote the cover blurb, so I take an interest in it.

Meanwhile, I think the answer to Rushdoony’s question is, “You bet we are–and you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”


The Arrogance of Ignorance

See the source image

Hey, boys ‘n’ girls! Oops, sorry–shoulda said “purple penguins,” ’cause there’s like 50 different genders. Anyway–wanna *Save The Planet*? Of course you do!

The perky publicist has invited me to review a book by a sage, all of 17 years old, on how to  “stop catastrophic damages to the place we all call home.” How to “stop” it, eh? Ya mean, like hitting the “off” switch?

I wonder if we can guess where this precious little tyke is coming from. Hmm… Here’s a chapter called “Bye, Bye Big Business.” It’s about how “major corporations” stop Climbit Change legislation and “how young people can prevent this from happening.” Doubtless by electing Far Left Crazy Democrats and enacting the Green New Deal… just as soon as the Constitution is repealed.

I hope it goes without saying that I don’t mean for this to be insulting to teenagers in general. I really like their company, they’re good for me. I love it that a few teens have joined this blog, and I hope more will follow.

But having been a 17-year-old myself, I think I can state with perfect confidence that it would have been the height of folly to take me, at that age, for any kind of public policy adviser. So easy to be taken for a ride by one’s college professors, et al. And when adults praise you, it goes right to your head. Just tell us we’re really smart, and we’ll eat out of your hand. Been there, done that.

I’m not going to give this kid’s name, in hopes that he’ll grow out of this, nor the title of the book, because I don’t want anyone to blame me if they buy it.

All you need to know about “Climate Science” is that Far Left Crazy sees it as their ticket to a global government.


The Age of Krazy Krap

See the source image

I’m not laughing as much as I ought to at all the krazy krap pouring out of liberals’ minds and mouths these days.

I mean, it should be funny–right?–when liberals demand Open Borders and then freak out when President Trump offers to release hordes of illegal aliens into liberal-run sanctuary cities. Sure, it’s funny. But what’s not so funny is that the leftids’ own towering hypocrisy is completely invisible to them. You offer to give them what they say they want, and then they don’t want it. And so they continue to press for Open Borders for all the rest of us.

Yes, it was high comedy when Mitch McConnell put up the Democrats’ Green New Deal for a vote in the Senate, and they not only cried “Foul!” with wailing and gnashing of teeth–but couldn’t find it in themselves to vote in favor of their own utopian fun pack. That was a hoot. But it’s not funny that they continue to demand all these restrictions for the rest of us.

Fifty-odd “genders” ought to be a scream, and of course we ought to laugh at it. But when they want to make it a criminal offense not to acquiesce to this delusion, that’s not exactly a knee-slapper.

They insist the world is gonna end in just 12 years if we don’t give them everything they want–To Save The Planet, don’t you know–and that ought to have us rolling in the aisles. But their 2016 party platform, the platform their presidential candidate ran on, called for the attorney general to “investigate” the crime of Climate Change Denial–the crime of not believing in their apocalyptic piffle.

Mr. Bean, the Three Stooges, Abbot and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy put together couldn’t match the high goofiness created by liberals today. It’s not just that their ideas are wrong. It’s that their ideas are flagrantly, monumentally, hysterically, out-to-lunch wrong. To the point where we really have to wonder if they’re quite all there.

The thought of them ever again winning an election… Well, that’s not funny at all.


Green New Deal Gets… Zero Votes!

See the source image

Well, there you have it: they tell us the world’s gonna end in 12 years and we’re all gonna die unless we do exactly what they say–and then, when they get a chance to vote for it in the U.S. Senate, not one Democrat Senator, no, not one, voted yesterday for their precious “Green New Deal.”

What? Do they not care that we’re all freakin’ doomed? They told us that we have to do these things! Stop all use of fossil fuels. Guaranteed income for layabouts who refuse to work. No more private home ownership. No more cars. They go on and on about it; and then, when they get a chance to go on the record for it, they all vote “present”!

Yup, that’s what they did in the U.S. Senate yesterday. Fifty-three Republican senators, plus three Democrats who didn’t dare ever to go home again unless they voted “no,” voted against the Green New Deal; and 42 Democrat senators voted “present.” In the same sense that a pineapple or an ashtray would be “present.”

Like we’ve been observing all along, the Climbit Change crowd doesn’t believe a single word they say: it’s all for consumption by the stupid masses. Our rulers mean to rule us whether we like it or not.

They need an attitude adjustment.

Anyway, they couldn’t bring themselves to vote in favor of their own Green New Deal that they invented and pitched to us as absolutely necessary as the only possible way to escape Doomsday.

When a chef can’t be made to take a single forkful of the meal that he’s prepared for someone else, think poison.


Tomorrow! Teens to March for ‘Climate Justice’

See the source image

There must be something more shameful than allowing children to lecture adults, but I’m sure I can’t imagine what it is.

Quick! How many nanoseconds will it take you to think of a better idea than leaving huge public policy decisions up to teenagers?

If all goes well for Far Left Crazy–sometimes it just sort of fizzles out–tomorrow will see kazillions of teenagers all over America walk out of school to demand “climate justice,” whatever the deuce that is, as part of a world-wide Youth Climate Strike (https://www.ecowatch.com/youth-climate-strike-2627959531.html). Oh, well, if I’d had a chance to get applauded for walking out of school, I’d have done it, too.

Says a 13-year-old “organizer” of the event, “People are dying right now, and we need to #ActOnClimate!”, hashtags and all. *Sigh* A 15-year-old demands “immediate action” by the government: “We need a Green New Deal!” Let’s see what he says if they really get the Green New Deal and they tell him he can never have a car.

This incredible spontaneous movement by children is “supported by environmental groups” with cool names like “Extinction Rebellion.” We are asked to believe that no adults, motivated by any wacko political agenda, put the kids up to this. And if you believe that…

This is the culmination of years of work by public “educators” to reduce whole generations to slavish obedience to whatever the government and Science spoon-feed them in the classroom, on the TV nooze, and in superhero movies. This is babble for the rabble. The massive ignorance needed to fuel such a movement staggers the mind. All they know is that the world is gonna end in just 12 years and everybody’s gonna die unless the devouring state is given absolute power over everyone and everything.

And we paid for it! We paid for the club that’s going to come down on our heads.

For how much longer do they get to abuse us before we shut off the flow of the money?


Climate Cult: ‘This is How We Stopped Climate Change’

See the source image

Honest, you’ll like it! (Or else)

Paid for by the defenseless American taxpayer, National Public Radio recently featured “It’s 2050, and This Is How We Stopped Climate Change” (https://knpr.org/npr/2019-03/its-2050-and-how-we-stopped-climate-change). Yowsah, yowsah, “A world without climate change!”

Where do you even begin, with such fat-headed hubris? A world without climate change? Hey, aren’t you guys the ones who are always clubbing us over the head with “settled science”? Do any of you have a Geology 101 textbook? Aren’t you supposed to be able to look at the rocks and tell what happened in the past? I mean, how did all those seashells wind up on the tops of mountains? What are all those whale fossils doing in the middle of the Sahara Desert? Think there might have been some climate change involved there? Don’t you bother to learn your own “science”?

So where the devil was this “world without climate change”? Oh–what’s that? It couldn’t happen until you guys came along, to make it happen? Hubris, man. That’s hubris.

Anyway, here’s how they’re gonna “stop climate change” by 2050, creating a paradise on earth.

*Solar and wind power will replace any and all other methods of generating electricity, giving us a “zero-carbon world.” See, we gotta have zero greenhouse gases by 2050, or we’re all gonna die. Or something.

*”Urbanization of everything”! Oh, peachy. No more suburbs allowed, no more cars, no more private homes, shove five families into every house–a la the Soviet Union, circa 1930. All housing will be multifamily housing, you’ll walk to work and like it, and no one, but no one, will ever be stressed out by being forced to live without space, without privacy.

Wait a minute–hasn’t that book already been written? Sure it has: The Hunger Games. They want us to live like we’re in The Hunger Games.

*Cut way back on the consumption of beef, replacing it with lots and lots of artificial food brewed up in the labs (“Soylent Green is people”) and it will taste real good, you won’t want White Castles anymore.

What do you want to bet our noble and glorious leaders, and their pet savants of Science, will continue to enjoy lavish mansions, private jets, limousines, and all the beef they can stuff into their mouths with both hands?

Boy, if we actually let them do this stuff to us–! Well, then we’d deserve it, wouldn’t we?
