Sorry, Democrats, But Your Stars Are Socialists

There was Bernie Sanders at a Fox News Channel town hall, not giving an inch in a forum every Democratic presidential candidate has shunned.
His reward was a cataract of good reviews and monster ratings. Sanders had a solid hour to try to reach people not favorably inclined to his worldview, at the very least demonstrating that he’s willing to show up outside his political silo.
Why hadn’t any of the other Democrats done it before? Because they lacked the verve and ideological self-confidence of Sanders, as well as the independent streak to buck the Democratic party’s attempt to hold the line against Fox. As a message candidate, Sanders is willing to take his anywhere.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, miraculously transformed into a relatively moderate Democratic elder stateswoman, has understandably been pushing back against the notion that she leads a socialist party defined by a few radicals in the House.
On 60 Minutes, she stalwartly declared: “I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic party.” She dismissed the left wing in her caucus as “like, five people.”
In sheer numbers this is true, but it’s the wrong way to count.
The fact is that the most compelling stars of the party are self-declared socialists with a knack for generating controversy and media attention, and with committed mass followings. Pelosi might wish it weren’t true, but poll numbers, fundraising, and follower counts don’t lie.
Sanders is reliably second — sometimes first — in national and state presidential polling. He’s outraised everyone else in the field and, with his massive small-donor base, probably can continue to do so for the duration. More than anyone else, he has defined the Democratic party’s current agenda.
It’ll be much harder to maintain that the Democratic party isn’t socialist if it nominates one as its presidential candidate, which everyone paying attention realizes is a real possibility.
If this happens, it won’t be the work of conservatives hoping to negatively brand the Democrats, but of the party’s faithful. The same goes for the prominence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is often said that conservatives are “obsessed” with her; maybe so, but the same is true — and probably more so — of everyone else.
AOC has been on the cover of Time magazine, Rolling Stone (with Nancy Pelosi, as it happens), Hollywood Reporter, and Bloomberg Businessweek. Annie Leibovitz photographed her for Vogue. She’s been interviewed by 60 Minutes.
She has nearly 4 million Twitter followers and more than 3 million followers on Instagram, where she feeds the insatiable obsession of her fans — not her critics — with videos from her apartment.
She was among the top 10 House Democrats in fundraising the first quarter and had the highest percentage of small donors (her ally, Ilhan Omar, also excelled).
It’s obviously vexing to Pelosi to see a House majority built by the careful avoidance of ideological extravagance and won in marginal districts hijacked, at least in terms of public attention, by a few freshmen and a 77-year-old Vermont socialist.
They might not define the center of gravity of the party at the moment, and the radical freshmen have lost most of their tussles with Pelosi. But there is a reason that they are so famous, with such fundraising prowess. The crusading purity of Bernie Sanders has an inherent appeal, and the outrageousness of the freshmen attracts attention, which always begets more attention.
Yes, there are vast numbers of Democrats out there who aren’t on Twitter or Instagram. Maybe there are enough of them to nominate Joe Biden, or a Pete Buttigieg can win on a progressive platform clothed in a moderate demeanor.
But the party’s stars will have something to say about it. The great Zionist Theodor Herzl maintained, “It is the simple and fantastic which leads men.” As Bernie Sanders showed, it’s also willing to go on Fox News.

Socialism For a Snowflake

 

In hopes that we may communicate with the ZOMBIE type SNOWFLAKES 

The following story is from ‘Bookworm’ … a wonderful writer who writes for a blog I receive.  As I read the little story, it became quite clear that the style and method of children’s stories to get children to understand and stay interested in the story might be an effective way to get the “Snowflake” and the millennial generation to understand some of the truth about what they have been programmed to vehemently advocate, Socialism!

Ant & Grasshopper Socialism

Repost from Bookworm … Great read and worthy of a share.

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

 

This one is a little different … Two Different Versions … Two Different Morals
OLD VERSION
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!
MODERN VERSION
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green”
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the Black Lives Matter group singing, “We shall overcome.”
Then, Reverend Al Sharpton, has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.
Former President Obama condemns the ant and blames Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having; nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2020.

Thanks, Bookworm!

Capitalism is Oppressive, Give Us Free Socialism
Posted on August 18, 2018

“There is no such thing as a free lunch, someone has to pay for it.”
The American socialist politicians are promising their voting constituents through such figures as Barney Sanders, the politician from Vermont whose economic fortunes have improved drastically since he ran for president, and the socialist Cortez from the Bronx who, although she has a degree from a prestigious and very expensive school, does not know anything about Economics or geopolitics, by her own admission, and shows her lack of knowledge every time she opens her mouth.
But her ignorance does not stop her equally ignorant followers to support her generous promise of free rewards: health care, higher education, child care, and housing. Who can resist the promise of Santa Clause?
Higher education is hardly worth the paper the diplomas are printed on when the majors are social justice, women’s studies, racial justice, and other community organizing subjects that the young American communists are “studying” in droves.
Cortez has no idea how she’s going to pay for everything free she promised but Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts proposes to nationalize private industry. She can’t let private property stand in the way of establishing a socialist nation where the means of production are owned by the state. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/08/elizabeth-warren-plan-nationalize-everything-woos-hard-left/
In addition to the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” which afflicts millions of Democrat voters, statism has become the platform of the Democrat Party, which is now a very socialist version of its former self.
Ayn Rand defined statism as “collectivism, the belief that a man’s life and work belong to the state, to society, to the group, the gang, the race, the nation, and the state may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.” http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/statism.html
Fabian socialists like H.G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw would be very proud of our American youth today. Like their European counterparts, they want to reach the goals of socialism through political process and legislative bodies in order to avoid revolution or armed struggle.
Guns, after all, in the hands of ordinary citizens are dangerous, they must be disarmed. In their opinion, only the wise government should have arms. We can see how well that is working in Europe where citizens have nothing to defend themselves with against the Muslim invaders.
Europeans are not allowed free speech. If they try to speak against those who do them harm each day, they wind up in kangaroo courts and then given jail terms for hate speech.
Young American voters love the idea of a Fabian socialist welfare state in the vein of the European states that have such generous welfare and high taxes. Small European nations boast about higher college education rates. In addition to free tuition, they give monthly stipends to their studious populace that can take as long as six years to finish their bachelor’s degrees.
Who would not want to get paid to “study” for six years at the expense of taxpayers who foot the bill and willingly pay as much as 56% of their income so that their dwindling progeny can get a leisurely college degree?
Their Fabian socialism college graduates are now living in the formerly homogenous but now multiculturalist societal dream that is turning into a nightmare of their own making, caused by the tolerant admittance into their midst of endless economic refugees from Africa and the Middle East, refugees who refuse to integrate and are creating violent chaos across Europe.
What a great model to emulate here in the United States! After all, the Democrats and some Republicans alike have deemed that we are not diverse and tolerant enough; we must be forced with the help of the tin pot dictators at the U.N. into population social engineering submission.
So what is free under socialism in general that is worth having? In the true socialism society I grew up in, education was free until you decided to move to another country and then you had to pay back all the education you received. The state explained that someone else, i.e. the evil capitalists, was going to benefit from the stellar education you received.
Colleges had a limited amount of seats at each university and the competition was fierce. Only a very small percentage of the high school graduates made it to college. And there were no private colleges allowed. The rest had to study in a trade school or find a job working for the state in a menial proletarian job.
Just because you had the best of grades and higher education was free, it did not necessarily mean that you got in. The children of Communist Party members in good standing were admitted first, no question asked and no exams were necessary. The remaining seats were given to the candidates with the highest scores on various college entrance exams.
Some parents chose to bribe the committee members and their children had secondary dibs. Eventually, the best, the brightest, and most studious competed and were ranked for the remaining seats.
Child care and kindergarten were free too, but the seats were limited, much less than the number of children and there was a pecking order which placed the children of the proletariat last.
Health care was also free but it was hardly worth the poor services provided. The wait was long, the surgeons marginally qualified, and the drugs needed to care for the sick were missing from pharmacies due to the ignorant central planning by the Communist Party.
Housing was not free, the proletariat had to pay what the statists decided and it was Spartan and very small in large concrete block apartments without elevators. The exception was nine-story or higher buildings in which elevators were found but broken most of the time. The upside was that people were forced to walk and climb a lot and had good cardio workout and nobody was fat.
Aside from the “freebees” I mentioned, nothing else was free and there was no free speech allowed. You could choose to speak freely but then you were quickly disappeared, never to be seen again.
European Fabian socialists don’t exactly live in the lap of luxury either. Apartment residents are often multi-generational, sharing the same space with mom, dad, siblings, grandma, and grandpa. And apartment renting rights are passed on from generation to generation in a will. Owning a home or a condo is quite expensive and the waiting lists for government housing are quite long.
This is the paradise pure socialism and Fabian socialism bring. Perhaps Cortez, the Latina from the Bronx, should spend some time in Venezuela to experience on her own spoiled capitalist skin what socialism brings to a formerly wealthy country.

Standing Athwart

“A conservative is someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.”

~ William F. Buckley, National Review (19 November 1955)

I’m in a pretty ugly and cynical mood these days, especially where politics is concerned. It seems to me we live in an age where we are about to begin paying for mistakes of the past…and I mean really paying for them.

Progressivism has stripped all meaning from America’s founding values and has effectively rendered worthless the status of being an American citizen. There was a time when we paid taxes for the privilege of being a citizen and those taxes went toward protecting the value of being a citizen – today, we are simply extorted to pay for things people want who do not value being American. In a way, we pay ransom to preserve fractions of the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Every single aspect of the Bill of Rights is compromised, nullified or is currently under attack. From the First Amendment to the Tenth, our own government is in open violation of every single one.

We have decided, in our infinite wisdom, to expose all to moral hazard by extending the rights of citizens to non-citizens and equating people who pay no taxes or own no property to people who do, eliminating the value of actually being an American citizen. Like the old saying states, when everyone is special, no one is.

It has devolved to such a level that our elected officials, especially those from the Democrat party, openly scoff at the concerns of the citizens who pay the bills, deriding them as bigots, racists and xenophobes. If you express any concern for the decay of the country of your birth, you are immediately described as evil.

And we allowed this. At best, we have allowed a loud, vocal minority to shout us down and at worst, there really is a majority of people who simply don’t care.

I tried to make a point about illegal immigration the other day – that people coming to the US with no knowledge of America’s history, the reasons it was founded, the painful transformation it has endured to attempt to live up to those founding values would logically have no affection, allegiance or loyalty to her – and then I realized that this not only describes illegal immigrants but what seems to be a growing segment of young American citizens. These people can’t discern the difference between fact and opinion and yet they vote and hold office without even the most basic understanding of what their vote means or what their role in a constitutional government means

The Internet promised to be the greatest tool for knowledge since the ancient library at Alexandria but instead, it gave us the ignorance of another Alexandria – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Not to pick on Che-quita Khrushchev, but she is the poster child for such mile wide and inch deep transient knowledge that google experts and scholars possess.
Che-quita is just the most prominent current example of what Ronald Reagan said – “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

Comedian Flip Wilson created a famous skit about a crooked preacher who founded “The Church of What’s Happenin’ Now!” in which the rules were constantly bent to the benefit of the preacher’s own desires. Progressivism is nothing but the post-millennium version of that church. It is a church where only now matters, where relativism and ignorance are seen as values and destruction of Western Civilization is a virtue. Righteousness is defined as compliance with the destructive progressive agenda.

But there is s difference between being righteous and self-righteous. Being righteous means being morally right or justifiable; virtuous. Righteous people are validated by immutable principles, their actions are guided by them. Being self-righteous is defined as having or characterized by a certainty, especially an unfounded one, that one is totally correct or morally superior. Self-righteous people are guided by malleable propositions, not principles and define their “principles” to justify their actions.

Where the actions of righteous people are justified by their principles, self-righteous people justify their principles through their actions. Their actions are always approved because their motives are assumed to be the purest – even when they are not.

The progressive left has become all they once professed to hate. The only way they can exist in this environment of cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy is to “other” all who are non-progressive. Everybody else is evil, a Nazi, a racist and God only knows what else. They have succumbed so much to the self-love philosophy of “Gosh darn it” Stuart Smalley (Al Franken), they have come to only worship themselves and this church will continue to attract the weak minded because absent principles or morals, progressivism promises the seduction of always being right

The fatal flaw in this Church of Progressivism is that no moral superiority can be built on a foundation of amoral or immoral acts.

As we are witnessing at our southern border, nothing short of direct confrontation with the progressive agenda is going to work. It’s way past time to be standing athwart and yelling “Stop!”

God help us all.

The Only Game Democrats Play

March 27, 2019

Patrick O’Hannigan Culture, Government, Politics 1

People hoping to become the Democrat nominee for president in 2020 have recently floated suggestions for dismantling both the Electoral College and the Supreme Court as we know it. These ideas are in addition to the urgency with which many of them also tell the rest of us to be both deeply suspicious of parenthood and greener than Kermit the Frog, in the vain hope that those things might help to forestall climate change.
But if progressive policies are as self-evidently worth pursuing as leftists assume they are, then why do those same people keep moving the political goalposts? Why, for example, did the Speaker of the House endorse a proposal to lower the federal voting age to 16? It’s as though the only game in town were Calvinball, minus the innocence of the original version. Calvin, you might remember, was not above cheating (hence “Calvinball,” whose only rule was that there were no rules). That wildly imaginative six-year-old refused to build snowmen in traditional ways, but neither he nor his indulgent tiger ever waged war against the dead, as leftists are now doing.
That might sound like hyperbole to anyone who hasn’t seen Democrats trying to erase their own past by toppling statues of Confederate soldiers. The activists pushing for changes like that don’t seem to realize that when Confederate statues are gone, monuments to the valor of Union soldiers will have no meaning, either.
Being “woke” is an essentially reactive stance, because it has to contrast with something asleep or unexamined. But speech cops on the left (and they’re all on the left) don’t understand or care about that. Consequently, Civil War battlefields are being leached of the formative influence proper to them. We’re losing our collective memory of American history, and (in the hotbeds of progressive iconoclasm) ultimately mocking Lincoln’s resolve that “these dead shall not have died in vain.”
Leftists treat history as a tool for the acquisition of power. Anything that can’t be ignored or subverted gets reframed, which is why I don’t think freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or failed Senate candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke are as clueless as they appear to be. “Beto” and “AOC” know what their supporters want to hear. When AOC threatens the moderates in her own party but says perkily that “democratic socialism” simply means “putting democracy and society first,” or Beto preaches doom from the “coffee shop at the end of the world,” each is appealing to mal-educated people who mistake youthful ignorance for courage. In a different world, those particular politicians would be vying for election as homecoming king and queen. Instead, they want to be commissars.

READ Trump’s State of the Union speech open thread

Had the 2016 presidential election turned out differently, we would not now be hearing about problems with the Electoral College, or listening to activists pine righteously for “democracy” in what was built as a republic. Anyone who wants to lecture the rest of us on proper governance ought first to understand introductory phrases in the Pledge of Allegiance.
NBC News describes the progressive strategy for 2020 as an attempt to change the rules. That ideology’s notion of being bravely different never makes room for traditionalists, but now holds sway even in things like the dress code for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Despite the argument that outdated systems and social mores need to change, it’s hard to see progressive motivation as anything more than an alloy of hypocrisy and opportunism, because they move goalposts even when there’s no compelling reason to do so. Events in New York and Virginia reminded us that Democrats unwilling to let the evil of late-term abortion alone pushed past that into providing legal cover for infanticide, while casting themselves as merciful because letting babies die saves the cost of neonatal intensive care.
Less contentious issues show a similar pattern. Hillary Clinton, for example, has yet to be prosecuted for feigned ignorance (Q: Did you wipe your email server? A: “You mean like with a cloth?”), gross negligence, or felonious conduct. Meanwhile, Trumpian exaggeration draws swift condemnation from all quarters, the First Lady isn’t regarded as being multi-lingual or photogenic enough to avoid being snubbed by people who wet themselves over her immediate predecessor, and self-proclaimed bastions of free inquiry in North America and Europe are nothing of the kind.

READ Reparations: The Holy Grail of Identity Politics (Part III)

Two years into a presidency that has done more to expose progressive insecurities than any other, it’s also safe to say that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian efforts to sway America’s 2016 election started with bad motive and wide latitude. That it ended up vindicating President Trump is almost beside the point. Outcome aside, the investigation’s dominance of the news cycle was exactly what the Beltway Establishment had hoped it would be, if for no other reason than because so many politicians despise (and feel threatened by) the brash populist in the White House.
“March Madness” for progressives is no different from the crazy that they pretend to save the rest of us from in every other month. If your objections to that can be painted as logical, historical, patriarchal, privileged, racist, or cis-gendered, then you are easily marginalized. The only proper response to the way progressives have weaponized grievance and guilt is to refuse to play along.
In gentler moods, we might also remember that Calvin and Hobbes did not end its ten-year run atop the comics page with a game of Calvinball. Instead, on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson’s beloved creations signed off from a sled in the snow with an appreciative nod to the wonders of the world around them, as Calvin, with his triangular grin, said “It’s a magical world, Hobbes, Ol’ Buddy…Let’s Go Exploring!”

Booker was given a pass by the Senate Ethics Committee
By Uriel | January 31, 2019, | Asshat Alert, CONSTITUTION:, MEDIA:, Tom Fitton/Judicial Watch, US Senate
The Senate Ethics Committee has been a JOKE for the last decade or more. While those in the House have been busy more often than not investigating Republicans in the last year, the Senate Ethics committee has not done even one single investigation period. The last news releases they did involve Al Franken and Robert Menendez in December 2017. Before that nothing as far back as 2012.
So what happened when Judicial Watch and others requested they look into the dirty methods Cory Booker used during the Kavanaugh hearing debacle. Zilch nothing to see here…move on is their comments!
Judicial Watch just issued a press release decrying the absolute uselessness of this committee. The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics has refused to take action against Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who admitted to willfully violating Senate rules by releasing confidential records regarding then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s time as a White House counsel.
The letter was signed by Deborah Sue Mayer, Chief Counsel and Staff Director. Ms. Mayer personally advises Members of the Committee and Senate, and oversees the non-partisan staff in providing ethics advice and education, administering the Senate’s financial disclosure program, and conducting investigations and enforcement of ethics rules, laws and standards of conduct.
Prior to her work in the Senate, from July 2011 through January 2015, Ms. Mayer served as the Director of Investigations for the House Ethics Committee, overseeing all of the Committee’s investigations into Members of Congress or their staff.
The Senate Ethics Committee is evenly split, with three Republicans and three Democrats. The Committee members are Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Christopher A. Coons (D-DE), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Brian Schatz (D-HI), James Risch (R-ID), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).
According to their website, there are six staff counselors, five staff assistants, and two other administrative members listed. Yet not one real ethics decision has been entertained or been sent for consideration. How is that for use of taxpayer money!
Not one whisper out of the committee on how Feinstein withheld information from her own Senate party members or how Elizabeth Warren got away with her efforts set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without a full board membership or oversight by Congress.

Not one word on Senator Flake and his political malfeasance. Not one word on the abuse Democrat senators heaped on Kavanaugh nor their efforts to solicit “any or all” who might have thirty-year-old angst against a man who had already gone through six separate FBI investigations.
The JW press release listed why they thought the Ethics committee should investigate Cory Booker.
Sen. Booker admitted breaking Senate rules when he issued a tweet on Friday, September 7 saying:
Weds—I broke committee rules by reading from “Committee confidential” docs.
Also, Sen. Booker then posted the following entry on his Facebook account on Sunday, September 9:
And the classification of many documents as “Committee confidential” is a sham… I willfully violate these sham rules. I fully accept any consequences that might arise from my actions including expulsion.
Judicial Watch noted in its complaint that Sen. Booker also uploaded “Committee confidential” records to a publicly accessible Dropbox account with the heading “Booker Confidential – Kavanaugh Hearing Documents”.
By violating the rules in releasing Committee confidential records, Sen. Booker appeared to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013), which stipulate that he should be subject to expulsion from the Senate…
“It is an absolute disgrace that the Senate Ethics Committee is giving Senator Booker a pass for willfully violating Senate rules by leaking confidential information to smear Justice Kavanaugh,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Senate continues the abuse of Kavanaugh and his family by refusing to act against a Senator who, pretending to be Spartacus, violated the rule of law and our Constitution in trying to destroy him.”
Tom Fitton is absolutely right. If the committee members and the staff cannot seem to get any real ethics investigations done, then disband the committee or go outside the Senate to be responsible a respected constitutionalist retired Federal judge.
A group made of up of senators policing their own is ridiculous. The same applies to the House Ethics committee which is heavy on investigating Republicans right now but does appear to actually be working and taking complaints seriously.
