My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 10 ( ‘A Seer Foretells America’s Future’)

See the source image

It’s scary enough just listening to Democrats talk about what they want to do. But what if they actually did it?

“Boy, that’s kind of dark!” my wife said about this column.

But any Democrat can darken any room just by walking into it.


Whom Do Our Representatives Represent?

Let me put on my cap and gown and be Mr. Political Science for a few minutes.

It used to be a truism that all politics is ultimately local. Only now it looks like all local politics is ultimately national.

Originally U.S. Senators were appointed by the legislatures of their respective states, to represent their states in Congress. But when the 17th Amendment changed that, making senators elected by direct popular vote, it opened the door for the whole nature of the Senate to change.

Senators no longer represent their states. They represent the nationwide special interests–like teachers’ unions, for instance–whose contributions finance their election. Besides securing pork barrel projects for their states from time to time, U.S. Senators have very little to do with the people who voted for them.

What we see today is national political organizations pouring cascades of money into states to elect their favorite candidates. This money comes from out of state: the nearly $30 million, for instance, that Nancy Pelosi–from California–funneled into the West Virginia Senate race. To Joe Manchin, the Democrat. Who will, if elected, continue to represent the national interests of the Democrat Party.

When they’re not pouring out-of-state money into an election, the special interests are providing, free of charge, consultants and “volunteers.” Often they provide those along with the boxcar-loads of money.

They finally made it illegal to accept campaign contributions from foreign donors. Duh–why did they even have to discuss that? Now something ought to be done about deciding state elections with out-of-state money.

Because, you see, it’s undermining our federal republic. Our elected representatives aren’t representing us anymore. They represent the big fat cats who pay their bills and get them into office. Political parties, unions, foundations–our representatives don’t have time for us, whom they are supposed to represent. Only around election time do they remember we exist.

We need to find some ways to jog their memories.


Dems’ Teen Wiz Kid Bashes Old Folks

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.


Jobs Up; Dems Down

You couldn’t quite believe it when, er, “comedian” Bill Maher said he was “rooting for a recession… to bring down Trump”?

Well, the Labor Department reports that our national economy added 213,000 new jobs in June–and Democrats are, predictably, singing the blues over it. They hate it when anything goes well for America. A booming economy? Say it ain’t so!

Nancy Pelosi said “the economy is being hollowed out”–what?–“to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1%.” She’s probably in that 1%, and she doesn’t want it getting crowded.

The high job growth, said the jidrool who chairs the Democrat National Committee, “is hurting millions of hardworking families.” By giving them jobs.

They want their recession back.

Don’t worry, guys. When the Blue Wave sweeps you back into power in November, your having won America’s hearts and minds, you can get to work wiping out all that dreadful prosperity with oodles more crazy job-killing regulations and erasing our country’s borders to bring in hordes of cheap labor to compete with those 213,000 Americans who just got new jobs and will surely thank you for putting them back on unemployment.

What’s good for America is bad for Democrats.

And what’s good for them is very, very bad for you.


Right Before Our Eyes, a Lie is Born

Never mind Nancy Pelosi’s gift for annoying normal people and appearing to be one step short of going loopy. You don’t have to watch all 11 minutes of this video to see where she’s coming from.

What matters here is that the Democrat Party, right before our very eyes, even as we watch, is creating yet another vast, towering lie.

First Pelosi asserts that “Trumpcare”–any Republican legislation designed to replace the disaster that anyone but brain-dead liberals calls Obamacare–will visit “devastation on the lives of American families.” Don’t you love it when liberals pretend to care about families? Calling any effort to replace Obamacare “a catastrophe,” she predicts “heart-stopping premium increases”–which was, in truth, one of the major features of Obamacare–and foretells doom for “millions of families…” And so on.

It really is amazing to watch this unfold. Aided by the lock-step nooze media, Democrats are trying to create a gigantic lie and embed it in the mind of America. And the lie, a true whopper, is this:

Obamacare has been a fantastic success (untrue), everybody loves it (untrue), there was no down-side to it (those tens of thousands of jobs lost, and even more full-time jobs cut down to part-time–like, that never happened!), and without Obamacare, no one but the super-rich will ever get basic health care in America again.

This is a lie of truly Brobdingnagian proportions. It takes one’s breath away.

Can they possibly make it stick? Can they really, truly, get anyone but college putz-heads to  believe it?

God help us if they can. Because that will mean that we, as a nation, have lost all power of discernment and can no longer see through even the most preposterous lies.


Reach for the Barf Bag

After ten years in the House of Representatives and 24 in the Senate, California’s Barbara Boxer is retiring.

Don’t let the door hit you in the tuchas on the way out.

I don’t know which is more appalling–Boxer calling politics a “noble profession,” or The Los Angeles Times’ sycophantic puff piece on how great she’s been ( http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-barbara-boxer-analysis-20161207-story.html ).

But if “noble” means enlarging the government at every opportunity, voting for Obamacare, voting for public funding for abortion, and voting to confirm the appointments of every left-wing tin-pot Democrats could find to head up bureaucracies, sit on federal courts, and make a mess of our republic–well, gee, Washington D.C. is chock-full of noble people.

We have gone from elected officials as public servants to lifelong politicians as our masters, thanks in large part to careerists like Boxer. Their arrogance takes one’s breath away: remember then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (thank you so much, California!) saying, of Obamacare, “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it”?

These–ahem!–leaders are God’s chastisement of our nation for our sins. May He now call us back to our senses: and this time, may we listen!

There are a lot of Boxer types to get rid of, before our country can be right again.


The Magic of ‘Equality’

Our country’s leaders, like the three witches in Macbeth, continue to brew mischief. Even those whom we persist in calling Republicans are getting ready to unleash Income Inequality as a major campaign issue for next year ( http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-campaign-income-20150205-story.html#page=1 ).

Give me a break. Is there anyone so abysmally stupid as to believe that government, somehow, as if by magic, has the ability to “distribute” income “more equally”? You know–like they did in North Korea, Zimbabwe, Cuba, and the dear old Soviet Union.

Well, our leaders are counting on millions of Americans being that stupid, and casting their votes accordingly.

Because we are no longer ashamed at all to go openly against God’s commandments, it’s the easiest thing in the world for America’s politicians–themselves wallowing in wealth–to hold up “the rich” as handy targets for public covetousness and envy.

“Yes, you morons! That’s what’s wrong with America–The Rich have too much money! Vote for me, and give me the power to take more of their stuff and give it to you!”

(And please do not pause to look at the onerous federal regulations that restrict the production and distribution of goods and services, and please ignore the heavy taxes laid on just about everyone and everything, which drives up the price. Please don’t mention the truly staggering cost of government, gigantic bureaucracies that serve no useful purpose, billions of dollars wasted on completely useless programs, sweetheart pension deals for government employees… Move along, move along–there’s nothing to see…)

Is it possible that there is even one dunderhead out there who actually believes that Nancy Pelosi or John McCain or George Soros or John Kerry is going to part with one penny of her or his fabulous personal wealth so that a disgruntled middle-class American can afford a slightly better cable TV package?

Remember, you don’t have to be poor to be envious. All it takes is seeing someone who has a nickel more than you have, and working yourself into a state over it.

We really are turning into a truly disgusting nation.
