Saturday News Roundup: Gavin Newsom’s 3rd World California; TDS Reaches New Depths

The Green New Deal, illustrated:

Image may contain: text

The problem in California right now, the reason the state is suffering from rolling blackouts impacting millions, is because California Democrats have over the last quarter century intentionally prevented utility companies from building enough of those “backup power stations” you see in the second panel. So, when you have record high temperatures in parts of the state and massive wildfires (mainly caused by other Democrat policies that prevent proper forest management) in other parts of the state, you end up with residents of the state with the world’s 10th-largest economy living in what is effectively a third world country.

This is the single best photo I’ve seen that illustrates the current state California under Gavin Newsom:

It’s perfect. Everything about it.

UPDATE: Just came across this video clip on Twitter. It is also pitch-perfect:

 

A new low for Trump Derangement Syndrome. – The nation’s Democrat/Media/liberal/socialist/communist community reacted to President Trump’s second Nobel Peace Prize nomination in a week on Friday with predictable irrational outrage. Here is an American president, achieving what his predecessors have tried for decades to accomplish. If Barack Obama or Bill Clinton had been able to do exactly what Trump has done in the Middle East and in the Serbia/Kosovo situation, they’d have been erecting statues in his honor.

But, in the current TDS madness that infests the American Left, anything Trump does must – MUST – be bad. There is no alternative. If Trump found a cure for cancer, it would be bad, and Anderson Cooper would hold a townhall on CNN with half a dozen Democrats talking about how great having cancer is for our society.

You know that’s true. Indeed, Kamala Harris is so anxious to appeal to the TDS crowd – and probably afflicted with it herself – that she came out last week in opposition to a vaccine for COVID-19, if it’s produced during the Trump Administration. She really did that, regardless of how she is attempting to walk it all back now.

This is how crazy and frankly stupid and anti-American the American Left truly is. Nowhere is this TDS madness more clearly illustrated than a piece published yesterday by The Atlantic, which is fresh off of pushing the “Trump hates the military” hoax. Yesterday, The Atlantic published a piece written by some clown named Graeme Wood who hysterically suggests that, because Trump has been nominated for two well-deserved Nobel Peace Prizes, the Nobel Peace Prize should be eliminated.

No, really, he did. I swear I do not make this stuff up. Really, who could?

Here’s an excerpt from Wood’s hysterical screed:

Trolls are a Scandinavian invention, straight from the frigid sagas of Norse mythology, but Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norwegian parliamentarian, swears that he is not one. Observers of his antics this week could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. On Wednesday, he announced that he had nominated Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. “Can you name a person who has done more for peace than President Trump?” Tybring-Gjedde asked me, insisting that the question was a serious one. Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, agreed. ”This is a hard-earned and well-deserved honor for the president,” she said. Tybring-Gjedde defended his nomination on Fox News remotely, and to me in person at a café in Oslo. “Do we give the prize to Greta Thunberg, for screaming about the environment?” he asked. “The agreement he made between Israel and the United Arab Emirates could mean peace between Israel and the Arab world. That is like the [Berlin] Wall falling down.” Today the White House reportedly will announce that Bahrain, another Gulf monarchy, will recognize Israel.

If Trump wins the prize, it will be the fourth Nobel awarded for peace between Israel and its neighbors. (The announcement will come on October 9.) That will make Arab-Israeli peace mediators more successful at charming the Nobel Committee than the International Committee of the Red Cross, which has won three times in the prize’s 120-year history, but still less successful than my favorite, which is no one at all. The committee has declined to award a peace prize 19 times, most recently in 1972. (The next year, in a decision so trollish it might have come out of the Prose Edda, they awarded the prize to Henry Kissinger.) Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel Committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis. The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing. Peace had its chance, and blew it. The Trump nomination—one of hundreds, including this second from a Swede—helps show why.

[End]

So, basically, we see that Wood is not just a TDS-mad Trump hater, he’s also an anti-Semite who wants Isreal to be destroyed. Thus, he’s a great candidate to eventually be put on the Editorial Board for the New York Times or in a high position within the Democrat National Committee.

You really could not ever make these people up if they did not already sadly exist.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The 100 days of fun in Riot City, USA were cancelled on Friday:

But hey, there was still fun to be found in the nation’s capital! After Chuck Schumer and his fellow despicable Senate Democrats killed the follow-up stimulus legislation this week, there was only one thing for the communist rioters who call themselves Black Lives Matter to do, wasn’t there?

That’s right: They showed up to protest the death of this bill, which EVERY REPUBLICAN IN THE SENATE SUPPORTED, at the home of … wait for it… oh, you have to wait for this one …. MITCH MCCONNELL.

Again, I swear to you that I do not. make. this. stuff. up.:

These people are despicable.

That is all.

    Camel-ah Harris promised the prosecution of child molesting pervs; when it came time for her to move up the ladder, she bailed on the children. Her ambition is greater than any sense of justice she may have ever had.

    Proud to be deplorable, despicable not so much.

    California needs common sense, nuclear or clean burning fossil fuel, and a few fire breaks and controlled burns would solve their problems. Seems sensible. Oh wait, they are on the left coast, land of nuts and flakes. Never mind.

      Then again, you have to understand that is what these people want. It is not about cheap, clean energy–that is the last thing they want (and over the years a number of them have admitted it). It is all about state control, with them in charge. These means serve their ends.

    If anyone ever questioned the Presidents commitment to our military and it’s servicemen, they should watch the medal of honor presentation from yesterday. I caught it live, and could not hold back tears of admiration for the actions of the Master Sergeant, and the for the admiration of the Commander & Chief as he told the story. How so many people could hate him so much is way beyond my ability to understand. That is all I have to say about that.

      A better question is how so many media Leftists continue to believe that they can break the bond between Trump and the military.

      Did Trump avoid Vietnam with a foot issue? Yes. So did Biden with the laughable excuse of ‘childhood asthma’. It’s completely irrelevant at this point. The military rank-and-file (unlike the military brass) believes in Trump, as do a majority of the American people.

      The leftist media and social media have employed a software used by the military fir ISIS to indoctrinate people who go to their media sites and use social media. This software installs cues that helps enrage the viewer. In essence the viewer is being manipulated. That is why you see such hatred and irrational acts against Trump. It is designed to promote that reaction. They say if this software were to be shut down, you would see people begin to normalize within a month and by end of two months people’s rationality would be back. The MSM is bought and paid for by the globalist cabal and China. They will continue to use this software until they reach their desired results. The complete destruction of the US by our own citizens hands.

    These people are also the typical cannon-fodder for the Left, as it has always been.

    They go where they are told to go, and do what they are told to do.

    Would 90% of the people in the mob know who Mitch McConnell even is? No.

    Ignorance is a prime ingredient for the culture media of evil.

    The disasters that afflict California and other western states are due to incompetency not Climate Change. The damage to the environment these disasters cause is far greater than man could ever produce. How much carbon is released into the atmosphere due to these wildfires, not to mention the tons of flame retardants (dropped by planes lol) that eventually make there way into the water systems and aquafers.

    Split Oregon and Washington in two….east and west…and give the whole west coast back to Mexico. Keep the bay area for a port and call it a day.

      No, the disasters are due to malign intent.

      The incompetency falls on the ignorant voters of the state, but then that is why the Democrats have eagerly imported as many poor illegals as possible. That sort of population is the foundation of their continuing power base. Keeping them poor and ignorant is essential, and depriving them of available energy is a primary means of doing that.

      No, Jack, put all the Nutty Buddies in San Fran (the city, not the wretch) and initiate an earthquake – some recent pictures show earthquakes where fires are starting, and a light source many kilometers away. Fires and earthquakes were a deadly combo back when the city was relatively wholesome.

    “Trolls are a Scandinavian invention,” writes Wood. Ah, yes, and the movie “Trollhunter” is a brilliant if uneven spoof of the “Blair Witch Project.” Very entertaining, dark satire – English subtitles.

    But Wood himself is a troll, in the literary sense, and not a very convincing one. The Master Trollster is our POTUS, who can make people like Woods swallow his own tongue, kiss his own ass, and lick boogers out of his own nose. But Trump is only a word-troll, while Wood smells like the ones in the movie; Wood similarly possesses a low IQ (and unfortunately is a long-lived creature like the trolls in the movie) who explode or turn into to rock at the first exposure to UV light. Leftists are like that.

    The Left is attempting to troll us with promises of delaying election results, but the only thing that has accomplished is to energize the President’s base (which is growing exponentially) and making sure that we will all show up at the polls on time, even if we have to crawl across broken glass on our hands and knees. Wood is, as I said, of dubious intellect and no integrity – based upon his silence about the Nobel being offered to Barry Beelzebub based upon hope.

      Graeme Woods would like you to know that he went to a prestigious private school and then to Harvard. He would like you to note that his parents gave him a Brit name.

      As the saying goes, ‘the soy is strong in this one’. A look at his picture reveals a marshmallow physique correlated with great feats of strength on the keyboard.

      I imagine he is compensating for a childhood of being beat up and tormented.

        Those who let themselves be bullied lacked two things: A Dad who was willing to teach them how to fight back and the willingness to stand up for themselves. I have decided he had neither.

          No offense, but my dad didn’t do that, either, but I learned how to fight back, and how to fight for others when necessary. Learned one thing that seems a bit odd: all bullies are afraid of snakes, though not all people who are afraid of snakes are bullies. Even some psychopaths, who display low affect, no empathy and generally lower levels fear are afraid of SOMETHING! You just have to find the trigger.

          Psyche warfare is a valuable tool.

    Speaking of California fires, they should move to Florida for a couple of hours. We are getting hammered here in Stuart by a monsoon feeder band from the newly forming storm just north and west of Key West. Interesting when you can see the rotation on radar even from a depression. Fires would be out in a few hours if not sooner.

        You too Phineas,
        Definitely need to stay awake this time of year. Funny I have been intrigued by these storms my whole life, co workers and neighbors ask me when they should board up. They started calling me “Steve Weagle” after a local weatherman, (Steve is my first name).

          When I was in the Midwest for a while (Kansas, Oklahoma) I got to know a couple of ‘storm chasers’ that actually pursue tornadoes and drive towards them.

          Having experienced several tornadoes, I could never understand this, but these guys were passionate about what they did. And very brave.

    Maybe fifth column BLM/Antifa started some fires or a stray ISIS future democrat voter?
    Das Radio said a gender reveal party caused one of the fires due to fireworks (made in China) and I thought it was the Babylon Bee station at first.
    Peak Clown is meant to be funny as the comrades fail and flail at their man made egalitarian worker’s utopia building but property destruction and people hurt by the fire is not funny at all.
    Esteemed party member comrade kommissar Newsom is a punch line by this point and I am seeing Cali plates on vehicles moving into local hoods.
    Hopefully they don’t bring that vote democrat for life mindset with them and then turn our wonderful Red State into another progressive dystopia.
