‘Ezekiel Emanuel: We’re Living Too Long’ (2014)

Related image

Do you ever get the impression The Smartest People in the World are always looking for an excuse to bump us off? Like this, from four years ago:

https://leeduigon.com/2014/09/23/ezekiel-emanuel-were-living-too-long/

The idea seems to be, “We get to decide how long you live,” and, like, shut up about it because we’re so much smarter than you and we gotta manage the world for its own good, blah-blah-blah.

Really, people: if these leftids ever again take control of our country, we won’t get a second chance. The next Obama will be Stalin.


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.


Fake News: CNN Caught Red-Handed

Oops! Three “top journalists” at CNN have had to resign, blamed for a boisterously untrue CNN “news” story about President Donald Trump’s mythical Russian connection, and the head honcho at CNN, Jeff Zucker, is now getting flak coming his way (http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/06/26/fox-newss-sean-hannity-calls-for-cnns-jeff-zucker-to-be-fired-in-wake-of-fake-news-scandal/). It kind of hurt him that he was caught on videotape saying the whole Russia story is–we quote–“bullshit.”

Well, like, who didn’t know that? Except for deeply dyed-in-the-wool liberals?

Our nooze media is an institution that not only doesn’t work anymore, but refuses to function as it should. It’s supposed to give us accurate information, once upon a time called “news,” which we as citizens can use as a basis for rational decision-making. But “news” is now “nooze”–a species of myth-making.

No one has been more complicit than the nooze media in the Global Warming hoax. But even more flagrantly, right before our eyes, they have tried to create the myth, “the Russians stole the election from Hillary!” and use it to undermine President Trump–even to get him ousted from office, if they can.

They’re also busy creating yet another myth: “Obamacare was a fantastic success, America loved it, and if the Republicans repeal it, there won’t be any healthcare anymore for anybody and you’re all gonna die, die, die–eeeyaaah!”

What are we supposed to do, if we can’t get any reliable information about current events? If everything we read in the papers and see on the TV news is very likely to be a lie?  Where does that leave us?

If those questions ever did occur to the nooze magnates as they corrupted and debased their industry, I think the answer must have been, “Who cares?”


U.N. Warns U.S.: Don’t Repeal Obamacare

Just another day of food riots in Venezuela. BYO toilet paper–if you can find any.

Some people have no sense of the absurd. In fact, they have no sense of the monstrously absurd. And a lot of ’em work for the United Nations.

The United Nations High Commission on Human Rights (LOL) has “warned” our country that it would be a violation of international law if we repealed Obamacare and didn’t replace it with legislation they deemed acceptable ( https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/04/27/un-warned-trump-that-obamacare-repeal-could-violate-international-law/). Specifically, says the UN, it would violate “the right to social security of the people of the United States.”

Are they kidding? Are they on drugs?

The membership of this commission includes such bastions of human rights as Cuba, China, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela. Hmm… Think there might be some teensy-weensy little human rights violations somewhere amid that bunch? Try being a woman in Saudi Arabia. Try buying toilet paper in Venezuela. Try setting up an opposition political party in Cuba or China.

President Trump is expected to ignore the United Nations’ “warning.” It would be a good thing if he went farther than that: withdraw our funding of that hypocrites’ club, for starters.

Every tax dollar that goes to the U.N. is a slap in the face to the Americans who worked to earn those dollars.


Now I’m Glad I Did It

Image result for images of donald trump make america great again

Democrats are already screaming bloody murder over plans to repeal Obamacare as soon as President Donald Trump is inaugurated.

See, they’re used to Republicans who promise this and that and then never do a single thing they said they’d do, so Trump freaks them out. In his line of business, you can’t fail to do the things you say you’ll do, or you’ll soon be out of business. Contrast this to a typical member of our ruling political class, who never, never does anything he has said he’d do.

This is revolutionary. A year from now a lot of us will be shaking our heads and saying, “Why didn’t we think of this a lot sooner? Have the country run by persons who are not habitual liars who only go to Washington to feather their own nests! Who wouldn’t know how to keep a promise if their lives depended on it!”

So Trump will get rid of Obamacare, he will build a wall and secure our nation’s borders, he will lop away great swathes of unnecessary and burdensome regulations, and he’ll stop chasing business out of the country. He will do those things because he said he would, and it has been his way of life to do the things he undertakes to do.

It’s going to be great, and it will drive the liberals crazy.

I voted for Trump because he is not Hillary Clinton; but from what I’ve seen so far, he has a lot more going for him than that.


Judge Nixes Obamacare Lunacy (Well, Some of It)

At the last minute, a federal judge in Texas has ruled that Obamacare rules cannot, after all, force the American people to pay for “gender reassignment” surgery (http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/01/01/ag-2/ ).

See, according to Obamacare–otherwise laughingly known as “the Affordable Care Act”–one’s sex is not a biological fact, but “a state of mind.” Hey, my driver’s license may say “Lee Duigon” on it, but I identify as Denzel Washington. Obamacare treats “gender fluidity” as a fact, not an ideology. But the fact is, it is an ideology, and a very toxic one at that.

Go ahead, I dare you–name one way, just one, in which all this “gender” crap has made the world a better place.

Anyway, it took a last-minute ruling by a judge to keep this particular insanity from going forward.

We have a long, long, long way back to sanity, with Democrats and other losers trying to stop us, every step of the way, from ever getting there. May God give us the strength and courage to keep on.


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.


Why Are Liberals Not Happy?

Well, okay, sure–liberals are never happy, anyhow. But lately they seem even more angry and embittered than usual, and I don’t know why.

For the past eight years they’ve had nothing to do but check off items on their wish list. They’ve been getting everything they want. Obamacare, the first giant step toward their beloved socialized medicine. Homosexual pseudomarriage, one of the holy grails of Western liberalism: and not only that, but whole new government bureaucracies that smash and destroy anyone who dares refuse to “celebrate” a “gay wedding.”

They’ve come very near mainstreaming transgenderism, to the point where a “president” orders the girl’s bathrooms opened to grown men and all the big-time sports leagues, and many giant corporations, hop right on board the tranny bandwagon.

And on top of all that, they’ve got the Soros-funded thugs from Black Lives Matter hobnobbing with Democrat big shots and being feted at the White House, they’ve got voter fraud galore, immigration laws pitched into the waste-basket, and some of the most corrupt individuals in human history running the country into the ground.

So why aren’t liberals happy? I mean, if they’re this sour when they’re getting every cotton-pickin’ thing they want, what’ll they be like if they ever stop getting everything they want?

They may deny it, may even deny it strenuously–but the problem with liberals is that they want to be God. They want the rest of us to think of them as on a par with God–certainly as all-wise, all-good, and able to do all things.

They will never get enough. Their cup will never be filled. Their cup never runneth over because it has no bottom to it.


The War on Normal People: ‘Misgendering’

Why do libs and other Democrats always want felons to be sprung from jail?

Obviously to make room there for the rest of us.

In New York City now, they’ve made it a serious crime to fail to use some transgender kook’s “preferred pronoun” ( http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/05/19/new-york-city-to-fine-businesses-that-dont-use-correct-gender-pronouns/ ). At first this prohibition applied only to city employees. Now it has been widened to include “employees, landlords, and businesses.” I think you can soon expect to see it expanded to include family members, neighbors, or just people passing on the street.

Laws used to be about what you couldn’t do. With leftids in charge, laws are increasingly about things we must do, must say, must believe. Like Obamacare: you must buy medical insurance. Or you must be actively involved in a homosexual pseudo-wedding if they demand it of you.

Now the New York City Commission on Human Rights–hint: if your town or city has one of these, then your town or city has more money than is good for it–is on the lookout for “intentional or repeated refusal to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun, or title.”

Does that mean I can force people to address me as “your majesty,” if that’s the title I prefer? If not, why not?

The commission suggests that, to avoid trouble, employees at any business should ask a person “What is your preferred pronoun?” the moment he, she, or it comes into the shop. Business owners are instructed to fire employees who won’t comply. If you don’t conform to leftids’ vision of “diversity,” you must not be allowed to earn a livelihood.

So, great, now the libs have put a brand-new crime on the books–in addition to other just-invented crimes like microaggression, humanizing the fetus, and the biggest boogie-man of them all, Climate Change Denial.

This is what happens when a great city winds up being governed by a nitwit who used to be a Sandinista groupie. This clown won’t even use his real name, which is Warren Wilhelm Jr.–not “Bill DeBlasio.”

Clearly God is angry with us, to allow such leaders as this to rule over us.


They Admit They Lie–and Laugh About It

So you still don’t believe President *Batteries Not Included and his party are a bunch of big fat liars?

Three of Pinocchio’s former speechwriters appeared on Charlie Rose’s show recently (that’s PBS–cheat the public, whose tax dollars pay your way, and then laugh at them) and admitted that the “president” has knowingly lied to the American people about a lot of things: including his all-time famous lie, “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it” ( http://www.dailywire.com/news/5634/watch-obamas-former-speechwriters-laugh-about-james-barrett ).

Respected journalist Charlie Rose thinks it’s a hoot to get your policy proposals through by lying about them. Haw, haw. How about that nooze media?

This is why I come down so hard on cultural issues. The poison that they brew in the universities seeps out into the wider culture and poisons everything. The whole idea that lying is acceptable because there’s no such thing as truth anyhow–they cooked that up in colleges, and now it’s in our public business.
