Are We Freakin’ Crazy?

Image result for images of blue wave

Honestly, it distresses me to know that there are people who actually want Democrats to win. And the first thing I see in the nooze this morning is the exceedingly hard-to-swallow claim that the same American people that put Donald Trump in the White House are now 14 points up for handing over power to the Democrats.

Look, if you’re even thinking about voting for a Democrat, and you’re not certifiably crazy, and you’re not deep-down wicked, here’s what you’ll be voting for:

Repeal of your tax cuts. No more immigration laws. Obamacare II. Jail for Climate Change Deniers. (Yes, it was a plank in Hillary’s 2016 platform.) Impeachment of President Trump for the high crime of Not Being One of Them. Transformation of government agencies into partisan political apparatus of the Democrat Party. Lots more money for Planned Parenthood. Transgender “rights.” A blizzard of new regulations to impede creation of wealth.

Plus, in all probability, lots and lots of violence in the streets as the Far Left–that would be the Dems that you guys just voted for–tries to exterminate dissent and opposition.

Boy, if we put those people back in charge of Congress–

Well, just don’t!

They say social media is powerful, when it comes to influencing voter choice.

Use it!


An Experiment in Open Borders

Just in case you’re not convinced by photos of hordes of non-Europeans swarming into Western Europe, here is a simply way to understand the effects of open borders.

Start with a picture of a square. One has been provided. Copy it onto a piece of paper.

Now erase the square’s borders.

What happens to the square is what happens to a country if you erase its borders.

If you can still say, after that, “We don’t need no stinkin’ borders,” you’re a Democrat and there’s but little hope for you.


Why I’m With the GOP

Image result for images of charging elephant

From time to time, I take flak for being unabashedly Republican. That is not to say I trust or respect the GOP leadership: saying that would be untrue. But ours is a two-party system, and third parties are nothing but a waste of time and votes. You’re either with the Stupid Party or the Evil Party.

Democrats are wedded–and “welded” might be an even better word–to principles and policies that are irredeemably wicked, to say nothing of insane. I do remember a time when normal people used to be Democrats, but that time seems to have passed. So you might say I’m a Republican because it’s the most practical way of opposing the Democrat Party.

If you vote for any Democrat, here’s what you’re voting for, and make no mistake about it: abortion; “transgender” stuff; same-sex marriage, and you’d better endorse it or else; criminalization of religious and political beliefs; criminalization of “climate change denial” (don’t laugh: it was on Hillary’s platform in 2016); erasure of our immigration laws; disastrous experiments in “open borders”; destruction of created wealth by burdensome and non-helpful regulations; the return of the “mandate” portion of Obamacare; subordination of American interests to the UN and other “global” bodies; an all-out plunge into laws and regulations to fight imaginary “climate change”; transformation of official government agencies, that we all pay for, into partisan organs of the Democrat Party, charged with stifling dissent and opposition; the purposeful embrace of socialism…

Had enough? Need I go on?

Let me make the usual disclaimer: there are plenty of corrupt swamp rats in the GOP. It would be an excellent thing to weed them out. The Republican donor class would love to inundate America with a flood of cheap labor from the Third World. These Republicans are not our friends, and there are plenty of them. Nevertheless, the Republican Party is the only tool in the box right now, and we’d better use it.

The Democrat Party must be totally defeated. Realization of its goals would be the thorough destruction of America. They have not been bashful about telling us what those goals are.

It is the party of Antifa.

It must be utterly defeated and driven into oblivion, never to return.

And then we can start weeding out the vipers in the GOP.


My Newswithviews Column, Aug. 2 (‘Democratic Socialism and Mob Rule)

Image result for images of mob rule

Put a few news stories together, and you’ve got a pretty good picture of what America will look like if Democrats are ever able to make their dreams come true. Sort of a Soviet Russia without the balalaika music.

https://newswithviews.com/democratic-socialism-and-mob-rule/

Yeah, yeah, “socialism” really, truly works in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark–small countries with culturally homogeneous populations (until they started importing Muslims, big-time), miniscule defense budgets, where everybody works and there is no sprawling underclass supported on the public dime. Only those countries are changing fast.

They won’t run out of money as fast as we would, if we tried the same policies–but they will run out of it someday.


Ontario Scraps ‘Free Money’ Scheme

Image result for images of handouts

Last month voters in Ontario sent their liberal bosses packing, after 15 years, and elected a Progressive Conservative government.

This month the new PC government has announced that it will terminate the liberals’ “guaranteed income” experiment, which doled out free money to some 4,000 households in five cities (https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/lisa-macleod-announcement-1.4768626).

Of course the leftids are screaming bloody murder over this, as are some of the people who were getting free money without having to work for it. Those heartless conservatives are “making poverty worse” with their “callous, mean-spirited” plan to stop giving people free money worked for and earned by other people.

So far, everywhere this “experiment” has been tried, it’s failed. The new government in Ontario said the policy was simply too expensive and wasn’t the answer Canada needs.

“Universal Basic Income,” or whatever moniker they want to give it, is one of liberals’ dearest pipe dreams. The idea is for you to work while the gavone next door gets paid for playing video games and sleeping till 11:30 every morning. For some reason this never turns out to be very popular.

This is supposed to prepare us for the day when robots do all work and there’s nothing left for human beings to do but, I suppose, further corrupt themselves.


Because They’re Crazy

“Books?” said the liberal Eloi. “Yes, we have books! And here they are…”

Someone recently said that liberal ideas make sense to liberals.

That’s because the libs are crazy.

A leftid looks at Detroit–ruined houses, piles of books rotting away in the abandoned library–and says “Yeah, we want that!”

A leftid sees the piles of human feces on the sidewalks of San Francisco and says, “Yeah, we want that!”

He sees the mobs of angry Muslim “asylum seekers” turning Western Europe’s cities into “No Go” zones, and demands the same for America.

A leftid gets jealous if MS-13 hasn’t set up shop in his home state–as long as it’s nice and far from his own neighborhood.

A lefty loon is always “rooting for a recession” so he can blame it on Republicans and get Democrats elected.

A leftid sees young people coming out of college with nothing to show for it but a chip on the shoulder and a mountain of debt, and calls it “higher education.”

A leftid sees people in Venezuela breaking into the zoos and eating the animals because there’s no food in their stores, and says, “Oh, yeah, gimme some of that!”

A leftid sees so-called “students” physically assaulting a speaker, putting on masks and rioting, starting fires and breaking shop windows, and orders the police to stand down.

I could go on, but you get the point: everything that appalls a normal person titillates the liberal. These are, after all, people who insist that there are no moral facts. Give them one small sip of power and they’re roaring drunk, trying to drain the whole jug at a gulp and then reach for more.

America will not be sane until the Left is out of business.


The Age of Nothingism

Image result for images of social chaos

The world leaders and opinion-shapers of our age (“That’s our job!” said Mika Brzenski, however you spell her name) have sometimes been accused of being nihilists. That’s not accurate. The logical end of nihilism is obliteration. That’s not exactly what these people want.

“Nihil” means “nothing”: hence “nihilism.” But nothingism means “nothing good.” Because that’s what they want–nothing good, only bad.

That’s why they so determinedly pursue public policies that make no sense at all, that can’t possibly produce anything but disaster–howlers like socialism, transgenderism, open borders, global government, militant atheism (the most barren of a barren lot), etc. Policies that give us nothing but people going mad with fear or rage, soaring crime rates, and city streets heaped high with trash and feces.

Now the people who promote these chaotic policies see the same images we see, but the difference between us must be that they like what they see and want to see more of it! They are not dismayed by seeing hordes of homeless migrants pouring into their countries and wrecking them–doesn’t bother them at all. They are not dismayed by people breaking into zoos and eating the animals, because socialism has killed their economy and there’s no food in the stores–doesn’t bother them a bit. They’re “progressives,” and that’s what they call progress.

They can see their policies bring nothing but hardship, confusion, and suffering. We are forced to conclude that they enjoy seeing hardship, confusion, and suffering. They tell us it’s going to lead us to Utopia, to paradise on earth. What they don’t tell us is the kicker: “Paradise on earth for us, not you.”

O Lord our God! Imbue us with the spirit of Caleb, of Joshua, and give us strength and courage to prevail against your enemies. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


‘Their Fantasies Are Wackier than Mine’ (2011)

I wrote this in 2011; and the saddest thing about it, seven years later, is that none of these wacko leftid fantasies has died out. These are follies that endure like granite.

I really don’t like fantasy as a basis for public policy. Do you?


Has Ontario Gone Mad?

See the source image

(Thanks to “jessicafischerqueen,” Canadian citizen, for the news tip)

When I first read this, I thought, “There must be some mistake! This can’t be right. The message must have been garbled somehow.” But I was wrong.

Ontario is considering new labor relations laws that would, according to The Financial Post, “make the province the most radical left-wing environment for business in the Western World, and would go a long way toward ensuring that no foreign business would ever again invest in it” (http://business.financialpost.com/executive/careers/heres-what-ontarios-proposed-labour-relations-changes-could-mean-for-employers).

And how would the legislation do that? By making “a wholesale shift of power to the unions.”

The legislation features such incredible proposals as unionizing “almost everyone,” permitting a workplace to be unionized without a vote by the employees, hand unions copies of employee lists so they know who to go after and “convince” to support their program, forbid employers from hiring replacement workers in the event of a strike, and a bundle of assorted goodies for the unions–with marginal or struggling businesses simply written off as not worth saving. That ought to do wonders for Ontario’s job market.

There seem to be other bits of even crazier stuff attached to this, but as I’ve not yet been able to track them down, and still have trouble believing that even Canadian politicians could be this daft, I’ll let these pass for now.

What I want to know is, how does a civilized country breed up such a mob of howling-at-the-moon “leaders” whose mission in life is to destroy their own country? And we all know it’s not just Canada.

Is this what they’ve all learned in collidge? “Destroy capitalism, and everything will be utopia”?

They must be utterly defeated. Our civilization’s survival depends on it.


My Religion, and My Politics

See the source image

Liberals and pietists never tire of faulting us who “mix religion with politics”–even though, for leftids, their politics is their religion.

But they want Christians to compartmentalize their thought; and that’s how you wind up with professed Catholics like John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi pouring public money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood, defending and funding abortion. This is, to put it as mildly as I can, not honest.

If our “religion” does not manifest itself in the political positions we take, it’s not really our religion, is it? And when our country, as a matter of public policy, acts contrary to God’s immutable moral law, then our dear leaders drag us all into their own sin. Worse, they put our country in danger of God’s judgement–as when a few lawyers on the Supreme Court “legalize” the same-sex parody of marriage, without benefit of any law being passed by the legislature, and the, er, president orders the White House lit up with “rainbow” lights to celebrate this evil. It is wrong for Christians to support this. Instead, we should be praying for national repentance and a reversal of this course.

We are also faulted for not holding out for some mythical simon-pure righteous candidate: we should not have voted for Donald Trump, the liberals declare, because he’s a sinner and we’re supposed to be against sin. Never mind that we voted for him because the alternative, Hillary Clinton, was unthinkable. There was no righteous candidate. In 2016 the next president was going to be either Trump or Clinton, no one else. Not to vote for Trump was to help Clinton. And that was indefensible.

We cannot support public policies that are flagrantly abominable, nor the politicians who create and enact those policies. And the list of those policies would be a very long one.

So, yeah, I don’t care if my religion overlaps into my politics. I think it should. Period.
