They want to micromanage every last detail of your life

December 9, 2018

The climate change enthusiasts, formerly called global warming proponents (until there were a few too many record cold winters in the East) are now trying to figure out just how many areas of society government should regulate in the name of slowing climate change. Everything is on the table—ranging from building codes, auto fuel efficiency, your diet and family size.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that French President Emmanuel Macron was forced to backtrack recently on proposed gas taxes (that is, carbon taxes). That was just a ‘bump in the road’ so to speak. After protesters lit Paris on fire and raged in the worst anti-government riots in over 60 years, the globalists have a few details to figure out. They’ll try anything and eventually work out what they can get away with and what we will not lay down for. But they will never quit. New Taxes are only the beginning (hat-tip Mises.org).

I might mention at this point that the Paris Climate Agreement that President Trump had the courage to pull the USA out of was a voluntary agreement. In other words there was no enforcement and no consequences if measures were not met. Of course, as the biggest economy and a world leader, the US would have been held to the highest standard and though voluntary, the globalists in our government and our corporations (most of them, honestly) would have forced companies and the military into these ridiculous and costly carbon reduction standards even though China & India’s agreement in the Paris Accord are substantially lower that those required of the US. This even though China is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases at 25.35% of the total compared to the US’s at 14.4%. The Paris Agreement aside, America has led the way with greenhouse gas reduction without the Agreement. Oh and BTW, China is this very minute building new coal plants like there is no tomorrow.

President Trump famously said when pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement:

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris”

Not surprisingly Pittsburgh (run by progressive Democratic mayor, Bill Peduto) countered that “We stand with the world and will follow the agreement.” There ‘s no accounting for stupidity and predictably several blue states (including Hawaii) have chosen to force their states to follow the requirements of the Paris Agreement on their own to the peril of their taxpaying citizens.

This is not your father’s Democratic Party

December 6, 2018

Communists and socialists are now the majority of the new Democratic Party. If you hadn’t already figured this out, we are looking forward to the most radical Democratic Party in history with the incoming freshman congressmen & women. Hat-tip AMAC, the conservative competition to AARP.

“The Congressional Progressive Caucus is by far the largest and most influential coalition in the federal government. It is also the most radical, having extensive ties to several major Marxist organizations.”

There will be an influx of far-left Democrats as a result of the recent midterm elections and they’ve made a deal with the devil. Nancy Pelosi has promised the Progressive Caucus more seats on powerful committees and more influence over legislation in exchange for their supporting her speaker-ship. Many of the newcomers had vowed to get rid of the old guard “establishment” party members and had publicly stated they would not vote for Pelosi for the Speaker position. But Pelosi’s not dumb and in order to keep the very powerful leadership position she’s promised progressive House leaders more power in the next Congress.

Here are some of the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (past & present):  Keith Ellison (Muslim & domestic abuser), Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sheila Jackson Lee, Andre Carson (Muslim), Tulsi Gabbard, Hank Johnson (who was worried Guam may capsize!), Ted Lieu, Jerrold Nadler (you’ll hear a lot from him), Elijah Cummings, Ilhan Omar (another Muslim who married her brother to help him immigrate to the US), Rashida Tlaib (another Muslim who celebrated her election wearing a Palestinian flag scarf), and Ayanna Pressley to name a few. There will be 98 of them total. Oh and BTW did I mention they are all Anti-Israel? Oh yes!

Get ready to hear a lot more about catastrophic climate change, Medicare for All, guaranteed minimum income, and any number of other bat-sh*t crazy ideas they have in store for us. About 40 percent of the entire Democratic Caucus is now made of these progressive House members. The upcoming 116th Congress will bring the Progressive Caucus to the peak of its power, simultaneously increasing the influence of its allies in the U.S. communist and socialist movements.

More mischief from US Federal judges & mistreatment of women

December 1, 2018

Each week that goes by it seems there is another Trump ruling struck down or overturned by a federal judge, with a lifetime appointment I might add! This time it wasn’t a Trump ruling, but I am sure he’d rule against it if he could. I’m talking about female genital mutilation. A federal judge in Detroit (which has the largest Muslim population in America) recently ruled that the ban on Female Genital Mutilation passed by Congress in 1996 is unconstitutional. WTF?

It’s a barbaric practice among Muslims where they cut the genitals of young girls to make sure they never enjoy sex. In some communities the procedure is carried out with razors, glass or scalpels. It’s fraught with many problems involving hemorrhaging, infections, difficulty with childbirth later in life, trouble urinating and many more.

This is done without consent of the child or even knowledge of what is being done to her or why. Parents, yes even mothers of these children are all in.

ESPN apparently cannot figure it out. We don’t want politics with our sports!

November 29, 2018

ESPN lost another two million subscribers in fiscal year 2018 (hat-tip Outkick The Coverage). In fact, since 2011 ESPN has lost 15 million cable and satellite subscribers. Those 15 million lost subscribers equate to $1.44 billion a year in lost yearly revenue that ESPN will never be able to recapture. One could say it’s strictly the way the business is going these days with all the alternate means of watching sports, the cable unbundling and all the streaming options, but I think it also has to do with the fact that we’re just tired of all the liberal commentators yammering all the time about political & social issues like gun control, the NFL’s embrace of the anti-anthem protests, and Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘Most Courageous’ award to name just a few.

The wonderful Prager University sums it up well in this recently video release on the subject.

Free speech in Canada died today. Trudeau to pay “selected trusted” sources in the media.

November 26, 2018

Hat-tip Michelle Rimpell via Twitter. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just announced a $600M initiative to give money to “journalists” who are “trusted sources”. Criteria to be set by people appointed by Trudeau. The goal is to protect an independent press. What? How do you have an independent press if you’re feeding the journalists?

This is terrible. As Michelle says, think about the states where the government owns the media. China & Russia for a start. WTF?

What’s more scary is that CNN commentator Carl Bernstein (of Woodward & Bernstein’s Watergate fame) favors recording, censoring and then releasing their sanitized version of President Trump’s press conferences . . . . because they’re all lies and propaganda. See that short video here. This is not so much different that what Prime Minister Trudeau is proposing except Bernstein’s version of protecting free speech would cost CNN and not taxpayers. But either way, we’re all losers.

This is how I felt on Nov 8th after Trump skunked Hillary

November 23, 2018

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, got to see a lot of your family and had a wonderful meal together. I know I am thankful for so much. I thank God for all that I have and all that I don’t have.

Just read a quick story (hat-tip Breitbart) about a baby in India falling into the gap between the carriage and the platform as the girl’s parents were stepping off the train. She was wedged flat on her back alongside the track as the train left the platform, picking up speed and thundering overhead — but just missing her.

 

God seems to have had a hand in this and thank goodness for the baby. The photo reminds me of how I felt when Hillary was defeated in 2016 by President Trump. It could have been horrific!

The “Hamas Caucus” made up of newly elected Anti-Semites in Congress

November 19, 2018

Think of yourself on a bad hair day. I have them often, mostly because I am lazy and like a “wash ‘n wear” hair style. Let’s be honest to have your hair look its best takes a little bit of effort, some hair product (which I don’t like either), time & patience. But imagine if you didn’t have any hair at all. You’d likely crave those bad hair days.

Bonnie Watson Coleman is a US Representative from New Jersey, a Democrat who was barred from wearing a hat on the floor of the House based on an age-old rule as a push-back against the British custom to wear hats in parliament. Coleman is bald as a result of chemotherapy treatments and would remove her hat in keeping with the rule. She didn’t like it but got used to it. There have been Orthodox Jewish men serving in the House but this rule was never changed so they could where their traditional yamaka.

Enter newly elected Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, (Hat-tip Clarion Project), she’s the first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress and the Democrats have changed a 181 year-old rule & tradition in Congress banning hats to allow Ilhan Omar to wear a habib (headscarf) when she assumes office in the new Congress.

Surely you remember Omar, the Somali refugee who married her brother to assist him with his immigration endeavors. Doesn’t strike a bell? Maybe the fact that she was and still is under investigation for campaign finance violations helps to bring her into focus for you. And by the way she’s a Anti-Israel despite her campaign rhetoric that she was not in favor of the BDS movement. BDS is a Palestinian-led movement against Israel. BDS = Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the Israeli “occupiers”. They also promote and support the terror group Hamas. In fact independent investigative reporter Laura Loomer has dubbed the several Anti-Semites newly elected to Congress as the Hamas Caucus.

I don’t know them all (though I see the popular Socialist, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez), but I intend to find out who they all are so I can monitor their shenanigans over the coming year.
