King Rehoboam’s ‘New Deal’

See the source image

When King Solomon died, his son, Rehoboam, succeeded him. Trying to decide what kind of king he ought to be, Rehoboam first sought advice from his father’s counselors.

They gave him good advice. Ease up on taxes, Solomon’s many building programs having pretty much depleted the nation’s wealth. “If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants forever” (1 Kings 12:7). But Rehoboam “forsook the counsel of the old men… and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him” (v. 8).

Yes, he took the young men’s advice instead; and when the tribes of Israel came together to hear him, he laid out his program–every bit as daft as today’s Democrats’ “Green New Deal.” Here’s what he said.

“My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions [whips with metal blades]” (v. 14). Heavier taxes, more penalties. Yeah, that’ll work.

And that was the end of the Kingdom of Israel as known to David and Solomon. Ten of the tribes revolted against the new king and founded another kingdom under Solomon’s former servant, Jeroboam. Israel would not be one nation again until our own time, some 3,000 years later.

Let us pray that the arrogance and folly of some of our own leaders doesn’t do the same to the United States.

Their counsels need to be rejected and defeated. God grant us the wisdom and the strength to do that.


My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 14 (‘Just How Crazy is Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal?’)

See the source image

I can’t stop wondering : are Democrats really and truly this far gone? Why would they ever make public a scheme to totally destroy our nation’s economy, social fabric, and political institutions? How crazy are they?

https://newswithviews.com/just-how-crazy-is-ocasio-cortezs-green-new-deal/

Now, I haven’t heard from anybody who thinks any of this is a good idea–but such people must exist, because the Democrat Party exists. The crazies need candidates to vote for, and the candidates need crazy voters.


Oops… $5 Billion Up the Spout

See the source image

The little engine that couldn’t

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has canceled his state’s infamous “high-speed rail” project, saying it would cost too much (ya think?) and take too long (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/12/california-governor-gavin-newsom-cancels-high-speed-rail-would-cost-too-much-and-take-too-long/).

In 2008 this pipe dream was born, and nursed by then-governor Jerry Brown, as the answer to California’s perceived overuse of the car. The original estimated cost of creating a “bullet train” linking San Francisco and Los Angeles: $37 billion.

By now they’ve already spent $5 billion, with nothing to show for it, the estimated cost has swollen to $77 billion–maybe as high as $100 billion, some say–and could not be finished earlier than 2033.

California also ran into a problem when a lot of the people in really expensive neighborhoods, who initially voted for the project, discovered the train would run through their own vicinity. So they changed their minds about it in a hurry, and opposed it. This phenomenon has its own acronym, NIMBY–“Not In My Back Yard.” Somehow their own cherished Green New Deal project totally lost its appeal for them.

The $5 billion is spent and gone. It cannot and will not be recovered.

Big Government–it trashes everything it touches.


Loony Lib Deletes Green New Deal from Her Website

See the source image

Well, that was fast!

Twenty-something Congresswoman, former bartender, and all-around yonk Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lit up the national chat room last Thursday, Feb. 7, by posting a “Green New Deal” that was certainly one of the most bizarre documents ever to seep out of American politics. After a day of incredulity, mockery, and concern for the bozo’s mental health, the post was deleted from the page on the night of Feb. 7 (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/02/why_was_the_green_new_deal_yanked_from_ocasiocortezs_website.html).

Among the provisions that got the most flak was 1) to pay a guaranteed income to persons “unwilling to work,” 2) to abolish air travel and replace it with “high-speed rail” [to Europe?], and 3) to tear down every building in America and replace it with a new one.

Well, yeah, that’s pretty crazy stuff, all right. Rubber room material for sure. Cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

So they wiped it off the website and are trying to pretend it was never there, or maybe it was but Republican hackers planted it, or it was just a rough draft that wasn’t supposed to be published, blah-blah-blah. Ocrazyo-Cortez reminds us that “the real one”–apparently there’s a “real Green New Deal” somewhere that doesn’t include any howling at the moon–has “70 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives” and has been endorsed by every single one of  a dozen Democrat presidential candidates. I guess “the real one” only confiscates our cars, brings back Obamacare, and makes us all Citizens Of The World, subject to United Nations supervision… ‘Cause we’re just deplorables and we all need supervision, dontcha know.

So they reached out to steal a marshmallow and got their fingers burned: snatch ’em back, put ’em in your mouth, and try again a little later.

A little bit here, a little bit there, and eventually they’ve got us where they want us–pressed face-down to the floor, with their boots on our necks.

But it’s all To Save The P*L*A*N*E*T! So that makes it necessary.


College Requires ‘New Pronunciation’ of Words

See the source image

We have always been told that the proper way to pronounce the word “fjord” is “f’yord,” because it’s a Norwegian word and in Norwegian, the letter “j” is pronounced “y.”

But authorities at Fimbo College have ordered all students and staff to pronounce “fjord” as “fuh-jord,” with “j” as in “jump.” They have also ordered all students and staff to refer to fjords as bodies of water found not in Norway, but in Kansas. Failure to do so will incur a negative review for staff members and subtraction of a full grade point for students.

Why are they doing this?

“Requiring a new pronunciation of words is excellent training in obedience,” explained Myra Jidrool, student government president, 42, a senior majoring in Intersectional Palliative Gender Studies. “Once the Green New Deal goes into effect, obedience will be the only response allowed. This will greatly enhance our freedom!”

They’ve only just started acting on this policy, but Fimbo College already has a list of new pronunciations of words. The list includes “kay-mol” for “camel,” “sheert” for “shirt,” and “white supremacist dirtbag” for “man.” (This makes it awkward to say the word “Manhattan,” for example: but, explains Ms. Jidrool, “Unconditional obedience is the name of the game.”)

Student and staff objections to the new policy, she adds, will be dealt with “vairy harooshlay.”


Why Have They Stopped Pretending?

See the source image

At the moment it seems better to look at some of God’s stuff than man’s. Winter will pass and spring will come, and life will bud forth again.

The more I think of it, the more it troubles me.

Why have Democrats stopped pretending to be human?

Oh, now, what makes me say that! Well, suddenly they want to kill babies as they’re being born. That’s pretty unnatural, don’t you think? They can’t get enough of Drag Queen Story Hour in all their local libraries: who can imagine a reason for that? And now they’ve got their Green New Deal, which proposes to destroy the economy, wipe out every freedom we have (except for the freedom to fornicate: they want to keep that), and which has already won the endorsement of every Democrat who wants to run for president next year. Can it be true? They’re all champing at the bit to forbid us to have our own cars? Can that be possible? ‘Fraid so.

For years and years liberals pretended to be ordinary folks whose ideas were just a little more advanced. Suddenly they have cast off all pretense and stood up straight and tall for infanticide, moral anarchy, and the overthrow of our country as a free republic. Why? Why have they stopped pretending?

Has God simply given them a delusion that they’ll follow off the cliff, and trouble us no more? If only! He could, you know. He could. But has He?

Or are they convinced there are enough lazy and immoral bastards in this country who’ll vote for them no matter what, as long as some free money is part of the deal?

Maybe they think public school and the colleges have done their job, and programmed millions of young Americans to want their country to be like Red China in the 1960s. Programmed them and totally dumbed them down.

Have they mastered the arts of voter fraud to the extent that they now believe they’ll never lose another election, no matter how odious or ridiculous their platform, no matter how revolting their candidate, no matter how disastrous their policies?

I admit it: I’m scared that a major national political party has embraced positions ranging from the appalling to the preposterous, from the eye-rolling daft to the outright evil, with nothing in between. Why have they stopped pretending?

You’d think the American people would massively reject the Democrat program of socialism, censorship, late-term abortion, “Open Borders,” transgender, and turning every nook and cranny of America into the equivalent of San Francisco or Detroit. You’d think they couldn’t get a hundred votes for that.

But they don’t think so. And we need to know why.

They’re All Crazy

Hey! Remember that “fundamental transformation” of America that Obama and his playmates wanted to do? Well, it’s baaaaaaaaack!

Yesterday we likened the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” as pitched to us by first-year Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-The Twilight Zone), to a bubbling vat of pure lunacy. Now we discover that she’s not alone: the whole party’s diving in (https://www.yahoo.com/news/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-green-deal-195205387.html?.tsrc=jtc_news_index).

Tear down every single building in America, and rebuild it. Replace air travel with high-speed rail–damn the oceans, full speed ahead. Guaranteed government jobs for everyone. Guaranteed universal basic income. Medicare for All. All jobs to be unionized. No more privately-owned cars.

Would you believe it? Introduced to Congress as a resolution, not a bill, this bilge, this poppycock, this flagrantly unconstitutional horses***, now has nine co-sponsors in the Senate, 64 in the House of Representatives, and has been endorsed by all of the Democrats’ 2020 presidential hopefuls–repeat, all of them.

See, we’ve got “to transform the economy and combat the devastating effects of climate change” and “the danger of extreme weather events” and also get rid of “income inequality” while we’re at it… Yowsah, the government’s going to guarantee good weather!

They’re all crazy. They’ve all drunk crazy juice. The whole flamin’ party.

How about it, America? Are you happy now, that you’ve allowed these wack-jobs to take the House of Representatives? “Oh, well, as long as they tear down my house and take away my car last–!” I mean, do we really have to answer all this crazy crapola? You can’t see anything wrong with it? It doesn’t bother you that a whole national political party has signed on to it?

The scariest part of all is that for some reason, these people no longer feel the need to masquerade as sane. For ages they’ve passed themselves off as “moderate.” Now they’ve torn off the mask and thrown it away.

That scares me.


A Bubbling Vat of Total Lunacy

See the source image

Straitjacket ready!

Okay, sure, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ha-ha funny. Her “Green New Deal” made me laugh so hard, I almost tipped over and capsized. You’ll hardly believe what’s in it (https://www.atr.org/green-new-deal-air-travel-stops-becoming-necessary).

But really, it’s not that funny to be governed by idiots.

Here are the highlights she provided in an interview on National Public Radio. I didn’t know they had a comedy hour.

Rebuild every single building in the U.S. How do you even answer that?

Phase out all air travel in just ten years, and replace it with high-speed rail. What? Take a train to Europe? Last I heard, the Atlantic Ocean’s in the way. That’s that bunch of water you can see from New York, if you look thataway. Geography not her strong suit.

Government-guaranteed jobs for all. Really? Do we get to pick what job we want, or will the government pick it for us? Ocasio-Cortez calls herself “pro-choice,” so that probably means they’ll make the choice for you. That’s what it usually means.

Universal basic income. Paid for by _________? Don’t ask.

Medicare-for-All. As long as we’re spending money, we might as well spend all of it. The government can always print some more.

All new jobs to be unionized. Another choice they’ll make for you.

“Massive government intervention,” she says, will see us successfully through this period of adjustment. Like when they tear your house down and assign you to your new job of shining some politician’s shoes.

As for the total cost of all this joy… “Shut up,” she explained.

So, yeah, it’s funny–but it’s also not so funny. This breathtakingly stupid woman sits up there on Capitol Hill and wants to craft public policy. It’s hard to believe anyone could be so ignorant without being totally staring daft, too. And it’s alarming to note that she’s one of the stars of the Democrat Far Left Crazy Party… that just won an election last year and now controls the House of Representatives.

If that doesn’t scare you–well, it should. Yes, it should.
