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.

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.


‘Flipper for President’ (2015)

In light of the current movement, among Democrats, to expand abortion right up to the moment of birth, this 2015 campaign to confer “personhood” on animals seems–oh, I don’t know. Sardonic, maybe?

Kill the babies, but save the dolphins.

Uh, could we, like, save both? Or would that be racist or something?


New York Mayor ‘Guarantees’ Health Care for All

See the source image

New York City Mayor and former Sandinista wannabe Bill De Blasio (not his real name; he doesn’t use his real name) has announced that the city will “guarantee comprehensive health care for all” (https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/NYC-Health-Care-Guarantee-Mayor-de-Blasio-504046171.html).

Yessir, everybody will get health care “regardless of someone’s ability to pay or immigration status,” including some 300,000 “undocumented New Yorkers.” Like, you’re not here legally, and not a citizen, but you’re still a “New Yorker”? The new scheme is supposed to cover 500,000 people–in other words, most of those covered will be illegal aliens.

There are no immediate plans to erect a 100-foot-tall neon billboard saying “Come on down and get free stuff!”

I know this is starting to sound like satire, but stay with me–it’s not.

De Blasio (nee Warren Wilhelm Jr.) said the program will cost $100 million, but, he promised, there will be “no tax hikes to fund it.” Especially after word gets out that NYC is the place to be for free comprehensive health care.

This is being done, babbled De Blasio, because “health is a right.” Uh-huh. And “rights” are handed down and protected by, of course, the government! Therefore the government must see to it that everyone is healthy. And if that makes it grow more powerful, more intrusive, and more oppressively costly–well, hey, that’s just the price of paradise.

If you’re still living and/or working in New York City, you might want to start thinking about going somewhere else.


Do They Do It on Purpose?

See the source image

Yesterday I heard a noozie say that “only a tiny minority” of Americans want our country’s borders secured against illegal immigration. This was obviously an untrue statement–riotously, flagrantly, boisterously untrue–but he said it anyway, right into the microphone for everyone to hear: thus demonstrating that what you hear as “news” these days has a good chance of being fraudulent.

And I heard a discussion of how fast can we legalize marijuana, and sports betting, and eventually prostitution: as the state leads foolish people into vice and helps them ruin themselves.

I used to think liberals were well-intentioned people who were simply mistaken in their politics. I don’t think that anymore. Not since they started piling San Francisco’s sidewalks with heaps of human feces.

Says I to myself, “Nobody is that stupid! Not even college students. No one can look at what happens to those cities and those countries ruled by ‘progressives’ and call it ‘progress.’ Nobody!”

A few miles down the road from here, we have the city of Perth Amboy. It used to be a sane, prosperous, mostly blue-collar city. My mother sometimes liked to shop Perth Amboy’s stores. We’d go by bus.

But no more. Democrats took over, drove out the prosperity, and the city’s just a mess.

Should they have been astounded, amazed, that the same policies they’ve pursued in all their captive cities have the same result–like, everywhere? Detroit, Camden, San Francisco, Gary, St. Louis–wherever they take hold, the result is the same. And as in cities, so in countries. Venezuela was a reasonably prosperous country, not so long ago. Their leftids took it over and, lo and behold, who woulda thought it, they turned it into a wreck.

It happens every time.

Again, no one can possibly be so stupid as to believe, sincerely, that socialism/liberalism/whatevuh will really work if you just give it a chance, this time it’ll work!

They’ve got to be doing it on purpose.

Why? I don’t know. I don’t think anybody knows. It looks satanic. I don’t know where this tree draws its nourishment, but it sure has ugly, foul-smelling fruit, poisonous to eat. Probably not even safe to touch it.

 


‘The Fantasy (Or Should I Say Hallucination) of Universal College’ (2012)

See the source image

Do you believe it? Six years go by, we change presidents… and libs are still squawking for “free college” for everyone, courtesy of the defenseless taxpayer. It sounded then exactly as it sounds now.

https://leeduigon.com/2012/04/25/the-fantasy-or-should-i-say-hallucination-of-universal-college/

Somehow burdening ourselves with several million more angry, ignorant, unemployable, bunco victims with useless degrees in Gender Studies, Beyonce Studies, and Oakum Picking is supposed to give our country “the world’s smartest work force” (translation: See that guy sweeping the floor? He has a master’s degree in Superhero Studies!) and make us “more competitive” with the other countries. What would we be competing for? A national bankruptcy award?


City Asserts Man’s ‘Right’ to Spend Night in Women’s Shelter

Interior of Homeless Shelter : Stock Photo

If your town or city has anything like an “equal rights commission,” your town or city has too much money and needs its budget cut so that it can’t get into any more mischief like this.

The Anchorage Equal Rights Commission is trying to punish a women’s shelter for not allowing a drunken man, who insisted he is a woman, to sleep overnight in the shelter with the other women, many of whom are there to escape abuse and sexual assault: but at least they’ve dropped their charges against the shelter’s lawyer, who had the temerity to defend his client (http://mustreadalaska.com/anchorage-equal-rights-commission-drops-charges-against-lawyer/).

How much more of this do we have to take? How do you even talk to these deluded left-wing cretins?

Don’t bother trying to talk to them. Just shut them down.

This insanity has to stop.

And that’s all the news I can stand to cover today.


My Newswithviews Column, Oct. 11 (‘Do We Want to be “Transformed”?’)

I won’t forget the image of those Democrat wack-jobs clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court while Brett Kavanagh was being sworn in, and neither should you. What would they have done, if they could have broken down the doors?

Welcome to a fundamentally transformed America!

Really, we must not allow this to continue.
