A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As the father of a pair of great Millennial children myself, I know that, despite all the bad press it gets, this generation is no different from mine or any other previous generation. Millennials are, by and large, good people and patriotic Americans who love this country. But like the Baby Boomers of the ’60s and ’70s, and Generations X and Y of the ’80s and ’90s, the public image painted on Millenials by our pop culture and corrupt news media is dominated by a small but very loud minority, currently personified most obviously by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

This week I received the piece below from a Millennial Mom who I’ve known for years. She and her husband have been friends of ours since shortly after they graduated from college. I’ve looked on as they have raised a wonderful family, advanced in their professional lives, become outstanding members of their community and just generally become great Americans. I’m proud to know them.

This is National Small Business Week, and this Mom created and runs a very successful small business of her own. She wrote this piece in honor of this special week, directing it to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her radical leftist bag of policies.

I thought it was so well-done that I asked if I could reprint it here, and she agreed. I bet you enjoy it as much as I did.

 

A Millennial Mom’s Manifesto

Dear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,

I’m writing to you to tell you that I respect you, and I disagree with you. I think you are confident, brave, fearless and beautiful. I love your dancing! Can I join in?! I admire your tenacity and bravado. We are both Millennials who love to wear red lipstick. And I think if I knew you, we might be friends.

Here’s where you and I differ: I am a young mother with three sons who has lived a life where you have to rise to the top to succeed. I joined the largest university in the country (and very liberal one at that) as a young, conservative woman who didn’t know exactly where she fit in. Yet, I assumed athletic and academic leadership positions quickly. I found my voice against the grain. I paid off my student loans  rather than hoping the government might forgive them.

When I graduated, I got a big sales job with a Fortune 500 company. I won awards and saved the money I made. I quickly realized that a strong, confrontational woman wasn’t perceived the same as men.

Did I whine and gripe? No! I moved to a more suitable company that respected women and treated them accordingly.

Have I experienced working in a man’s world? YES! But I don’t regret it. I embraced all my strengths in that world. Because even though there are a few weak & disrespectful men, there are many more strong men who respect women and know their value. I respect them, and I love what they stand for.

Now- onto your political ideals and values….

Fast forward a few years-I had three sons in four years. I sacrificed my career for my family so I could raise my boys. My husband started his masters’ degree when my third boy  was born. I’ve supported ALL of my kids & my household- all while teaching Bible studies, mentoring young girls and starting a small business. Three years ago, I bought a food truck and then expanded it to two locations. We live in a small town in Texas (which is larger than Pittsburgh), and we won customer voted awards in our second year.

If your “Green New Deal” or any of your socialist ideals get pushed through, I will close my business. Guess what happened when I opened my business? I started paying HUGE taxes- to the county, to the state, and to the Federal Government. You will lose that. I know you don’t care about my small business. But what about the 16 high school and college kids I employ every year? I’ve given many of them their first jobs and have taught them lessons in work, life and leadership. Sure, if I shut down my business, they can work somewhere else, but this is my impact on the community. I want to show my employees love and hospitality so that it extends to the 15,000 or more customers we have. I want to make money to keep us afloat, but more importantly, I want to have a business that supports its community and the amazing families in it.

Your government style will shut me down in one day- just like Obama’s ideas shut down many industries.

You’ve never run a business or a household. You don’t understand the complex nature of staying afloat in business or family. You don’t understand that a deficit can ruin you. Small business can’t survive in your world.

As far as running a family, you can’t print money. You have to live within your means and if you don’t, you’re in trouble. It’s the same in family budgeting as small business budgeting. You like locally-run businesses? Then don’t put such high demands on us and let our customers deem us worthy or unworthy – not from you in Washington. Your policies will shut down my small business and many others that are bigger and more important than mine. The town, city and state governments will suffer. They will lose the money we pay them to be in business. This is how it really works. You go run a small business and a family and then give me a genuine rebuttal.

There are a couple of things left I’d like to address… I have a large SUV and you want to take that away. It’s the only thing that helps me transport my large family and all my business supplies. I need this car to run my family and my business, but your climate “projections” are more important than my need and my choice?!? That is not what I call freedom. You tell my business to make the “sacrifice” for our climate, but so many others than just mine will suffer and shut down. I care about our planet and I do everything in my power to treat it with respect.

Let’s talk about race. I’m not a racist – not even close. I don’t see race when I see people. I see all people made in God’s image who deserve love, acceptance and respect equally. I hire every race and gender, and it does not matter what color my customers are.

But I do believe racism is real, and we need to call it out whenever it happens. It happens in Republicans and Democrats alike and all need to be confronted. I will aggressively confront it when I see it, and I will fight against injustice. But here’s one thing- don’t judge my blonde, blue eyed boys either. They didn’t choose their race or their gender or their coloring. They are innocent now, and I’m constantly teaching them about equality, respect, and love. But my boys aren’t bad just because they are white and male. They are also made in God’s image. Treat them with respect too.

Also, I love immigrants. On my street, we just had a party for my neighbor from Portugal who finalized his American citizenship. On my street alone, we have neighbors from Venezuela, Mexico, New Zealand, Korea, and even Louisiana! They all did it legally and expect others to do it the lawful, Constitutional way.

Last thing, masculinity is not toxic. Men who abuse women are toxic. And we’ve all experienced them. It’s awful. But us women have power too. We have lots of powers men don’t have and must use them responsibly also.

Toxic feminists are a thing, too. Let’s respect all people and not demonize the other gender. We need each other- in families, in business, in leadership and in life. Let’s celebrate each gender for what they contribute and call out each side when they cross the line to abuse.

I’m thankful for you and all our politicians who are bold enough to go into public life instead of private life. I have decided not to put my kids through the scrutiny that would involve. But I think you have the hutzpah and the power to affect small businesses, women in leadership, children, capitalism, and freedom for the good. I would like you to consider what freedoms you want to take away from this woman- me- a wife, mother, daughter, leader, and business owner to satisfy your social ideals. Consider my position, the small business owner’s position. We need freedom and less government interference. If we fail, it should be because we didn’t do all we could do to succeed instead of an overbearing government who shut us down because we could not bear the rules, regulations and taxes.

Thank you for sacrificing, for serving and for listening.

Always,

A millennial mother, wife and small business owner.

PS: You’re not getting my guns.

Climate Alarmists Can’t Do the Maths

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, look: If we’re going to have all of this incessant climate alarmism going on, can’t we at least get the numbers straight? All of this constant throwing out seemingly random numbers about when the world’s going to burn up, freeze, flood or just plain end is getting unbelievably tiresome.

Why bring this up now? Yesterday, Senator from the #ClimateScam Ed Markey told a sheep-filled audience that “Within 15 years, Mar-a-Lago’s going to be underwater for over 100 days a year, it’s going to be Mar-a-Lagoon, not Mar-a-Lago.” Clever, right? Ok, not so much.

But here’s the thing about this whole “15 years” deal: It doesn’t match anything all the other climate alarmists are saying.

The day before Markey pontificated about President Trump’s Florida property, fake Hispanic climate alarmist Irish Bob O’Rourke had this to say:

Oh. So it’s really just 10 years, huh?

But that really doesn’t conform with anything all the other alarmists are saying, either, does it?

Nope.

Last week, a Harvard scientist pronounced that we have only 3 years to save the arctic ice cap: “The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” Anderson said.

In January, as she rolled out her hysterically absurd “Green New Deal”, Climate Simpleton Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told us that the number is actually 12 years: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” she said during a congressional hearing.

That doesn’t even get us to all the hilariously-wrong predictions of doom coming in X number of years from the Climate Alarmist past. Way back in 1988, Ted Danson told a congressional committee – whose membership included then-senator Al Gore – that we had just 10 years to save the oceans. Yet here we sit, 31 years later, and the oceans somehow still live.

Apparently taking his cues from Danson, Gore released his awful film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, in 2005. According to Gore, at that time we had less than a decade before the polar ice caps melted. Yet, there they still sit, 14 years later.

In 1970, the granddaddy of all the Climate Alarmists, the perpetually wrong Paul Ehrlich, told us we were headed into another ice age, and that half the world’s population was gonna starve by the end of the 20th century. The world’s population has steadily grown ever since, and a tiny fraction of people suffer from hunger today than did 49 years ago.

Now, the world’s not going to end in 10 years, or 12 years or 15 years or 100 years, and all of these Climate Alarmist hucksters are well aware of that. They’re just in it for the politics, using their fake “green” stances as excuses to push their socialist ideology.

But one request: Can’t we at least just all agree on a number? I don’t really even care which number it is – just pick one and stick with it. It would make you all far more credible, if only slightly less annoying.

Thanks.

That is all.

Tired, Exhausted and Embarrassed? Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Just Like You!

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

George Will is tired and exhausted and embarrassed, and wrong one more time. – The Washington Post’s pet fake conservative and baggage carrier for the D.C. Establishment was so utterly, completely, abjectly wrong about every aspect of the 2016 presidential contest that you might have expected him to stay completely away from trying to predict anything about the 2020 race. But if you had that expectation, you found yourself surprised on Sunday, when the purveyor of the Inside-the-Beltway conventional wisdom slung some of that stuff out for the Post’s dozens of remaining subscribers about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

According to George Will – no doubt fresh from testing his talking points at his latest dinner party with the Beltway’s upper crust, all of whom listened and nodded sagely and said something like “you are so refreshingly wise, what’s in that yummy-looking croissant you’re nibbling?” – the former Vice President is “well-positioned to offer chaos-weary voters a rest.” See, George Will, a man who has spent as much time out here in Flyover Country in his adult life as Chelsea Handler has spent sober since age 14, is tired and exhausted, and he thinks the rest of you are as well. Because George Will is tired and exhausted, and all the guests at his DC dinner parties are tired and exhausted, he thinks Americans are ready to choose a president who is as tired and exhausted as they are:

“Biden, whose smile is Jack Nicholson’s without the naughtiness, is not angry. His sporadic attempts at seeming so are transparently, and engagingly, synthetic. Neither, however, are most Americans angry. Rather, they are embarrassed and exhausted. Biden has a talent for embarrassing himself, but not the nation, and he probably might seem to weary voters to be something devoutly desired: restful.”

Hilarious. Just as New York Times pet fake conservative David Brooks told that paper’s audience in 2008 that they should vote for Barack Hussein Obama – America’s Worst Mistake – because of the “crease of his pants,” George Will wants the Post’s audience to support Joe Biden because of his Jack Nicholson smile without the naughtiness or anger.

See, George Will, who coincidentally is 77 years old, mere months older than Biden himself, is not just tired, but he’s embarrassed, too. Because he and all of his DC dinner party friends are embarrassed by President Donald Trump, he expects all of you to also be embarrassed; therefore, you must want to elect an even more embarrassing president in 2020. And hey, who is more embarrassing than the creepy old guy who has spent the last half-century groping women and children at public events?

George Will proved in 2016 that he has his finger on the pulse of the American electorate just as surely as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez understands math, and this column is just the latest in a long line of examples proving he suffers from the elitist myopia that infests the DC establishment. This is what spending every waking – and sleeping – hour inside a liberal, globalist, big-government echo chamber will do to a guy or gal.

Certainly, millions of Americans remain utterly embarrassed that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States. We know those people as “admitted Democrats” and “Democrats who pretend to be Republicans, i.e., Never Trumpers.”

The rest of the people are the people we know as “normal Americans.” These are the vast majority of people in this country, none of whom are embarrassed at all about record low unemployment for Hispanics, African Americans and women, paying lower taxes, 3.2% economic growth and being at relative peace in the world compared to the 28 years that came before 2017.

These are the people who have normalized Trump’s often-erratic behavior internally, the people who see headlines about the latest sort-of-nutty thing the President said or tweeted and think “hey, that beats headlines about hundreds of U.S. soldiers coming back from the Middle East in body bags or congress having to extend unemployment benefits for the 27th time or a president going on his 4th or 5th global apology tour.”

But George Will doesn’t know these people – these people, who live in the vast, overwhelmingly “red” middle of our nation, never get invited to DC dinner parties, you see. George Will regularly chats with Morning Joe and Mika, not Joe and Jane Blow from Ypsilanti, and Morning Joe and Mika are tired and exhausted just like George Will.

By coincidence, the latest ABC/Washington Post poll, released over the weekend, has Biden leading the Democrat field with just 17% support. And that’s among purely Democrat voters. How 17% of Democrats is going to translate into 51% of all Americans, George Will doesn’t try to explain, other than to point to that “Jack Nicholson smile” that all of you tired and exhausted and embarrassed people out there in Flyover Country are going to settle for.

Somehow, “Vote for Joe Biden Because He’s Tired and Exhausted and Embarrassing” doesn’t strike me as a winning campaign slogan.

That is all.

San Fran Nan Cracks Down on her Rambunctious Radicals

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just like that, the San Fran Nan crackdown on AOC and her radical cohorts begins. – The first thing you need to know about Democrat politicians is that they’re all just reciting from scripts written for them by other people. They all put their own little trademark spins on things – Irish Bob O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders also add in their trademark hand-and-arm-gesticulations – but in effect, they’re all nothing but a bunch of talking points parrots at the end of the day.

The second thing you need to understand is that everything contained in their scripts is based on polling and focus group data. Nothing is spontaneous, nothing is extemporaneous, nothing is meant to communicate what they really believe. Hell, it’s just the opposite, really: Pretty much everything in the scripts is designed to obfuscate what they really believe and want to do to you if elected.

Only when you understand the above can you really digest and understand what has taken place over the last couple of days.

Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leaders in the congressional Democrat caucus must have gotten some very bad polling data on the antics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their fellow radicals in the House. That’s the only way to explain the following all taking place so close together:

  • Pelosi’s puff piece interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes”, in which she was entirely dismissive of AOC and her fellow radicals, saying they amount to “about 5 members,” and going onto say that “a glass of water with a D next to it” would easily win Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district.
  • The announcement by AOC just before the airing of that Pelosi interview that she would no longer use Facebook and would be cutting back on all social media due to “health” concerns. “I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time,” she said, “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh.
  • The sudden relative silence from the Twitter account and gaping mouth of fellow radical leftist Ilhan Omar, who got into a furious controversy over her latest anti-American remarks that lasted most of last week.

The ongoing radical, anti-American antics by these two and fellow radical leftist freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has no doubt led to some highly-negative polling data now flowing into the office of the Speaker of the House, and she ain’t happy about it.

If you really believe AOC’s absurd cover for dramatically scaling back her social media antics, boy do I have some waterfront property out in West Central Texas I’d like to talk to you about. AOC built her entire campaign on social media, and has practically lived on Facebook and Twitter since taking office in January. The same is true of Omar, who has been a near-constant presence on Twitter and in front of the nearest available TV camera since the day she was sworn into office.

San Fran Nan most likely finally had enough of these two primadonnas constantly upsetting her and the Democrat Party’s preferred daily narratives and stealing all the media attention for themselves. So she has obviously ordered them to rein themselves in for awhile and let the Party’s “grownups” – such as they are – resume control of the messaging.

Too bad – these crazy freshman kids have provided the most entertainment value through the entire political season in the first four months of the year.

Don’t fret, though: There’s no way these attention hogs can contain themselves for long. But for now, anyway, San Fran Nan appears to have exerted some semblance of control.

That is all.

AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

AOC and Mad Maxine: The Prophets of Democrat Mendacity and Ignorance

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Liberals: It’s not what they don’t know that’s the problem, it’s what they “know” that just isn’t so. – The multi-generational ignorance of Democrat Party leaders was on display over the weekend, and it is glorious.

First up was the elderly face of the Democrat Party, 80 year-old Maxine Waters, who was apparently off her meds and went off into a dementia-driven rant during an interview at the NAACP’s Image Awards. First, she outrageously compared the congressional Democrats’ absurd requests for the release of an unredacted Mueller report and all of its background documentation to … wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…APARTHEID. I swear I do not make this stuff up – who could?

She then clearly demonstrated she has no clue about the size of the Mueller report, saying “No matter what has been revealed thus far and there’s only four pages of what appears to be a report of about, maybe somewhere between 3,000, 4,000 pages.”  Oh. For accuracy’s sake, pretty much every media outlet in America has reported that Mueller’s report consists of about 300 pages, so Waters was only off by a factor of about 10, which is far closer than she normally gets to the reality of any given situation.

But the best part of Mad Maxine’s rant about the absolute, irreversible necessity for she and her despicable colleagues in congress to get their grasping claws on every shred of paper Mueller and his team generated, is her statement that, well, they really don’t need it after all:

“And so, no matter what this report is thus far, we have seen enough. We have seen right before our very eyes the obstruction of justice in so many ways.” Oh. Ok. So it’s absolutely, 100% mandatory that you see the whole report and all of its documentation, but you’ve seen enough already, and really don’t need to see any of it at all. Gotcha.

Next up in the Democrat Party Parade of Nitwits was another Usual Suspect, the spoiled child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  AOC, as she likes to be called, doesn’t have advancing age as a rationalization for her complete lack of acquaintance with reality – with her, it just plain damn ignorance compounded by absolute arrogance.

Given a three-hour platform by her willing accomplices at MSNBC to pitch her imbecilic “Green New Deal” to America’s growing legion of mind-numbed masses, AOC preached (and as Grabien News notes, it was without question a religious event) about all manner of Socialist nitwittery to the adoration of the carefully-constructed, invited audience. As it always is with her, as long as she was sticking to the array of talking points written for her by her “Justice Democrats” handlers, the Bronx Bartender did fine.

The problem came when she decided to ad lib from those messages, as when she rewrote history by claiming that some nebulous “they” amended the U.S. constitution to boot Franklin Roosevelt out of office:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected.”

Because, of course, rewriting history is always one of the first goals of Marxist thugs in taking over any country. For the record, FDR passed away while serving his fourth term in 1945. The 22nd amendment, which limits president’s to two full terms in office, was enacted by the nebulous “they” in 1947.

Then, there was this handy justification for government control of the means of production:

“We are dealing with a crisis of how our economy is made up. Our economy is increasingly financialized. Which means we’re making profits off of interest and off of leasing your phones, off of doing all these things, but we’re not producing and we’re not innovating in the way we need to as an economy.”

What a load of fresh, smelly horse manure that is.

Again, for the record, our economy is booming, performing better during 2018 than it has in well over a decade. America over the past two years has seen a massive rebirth in its manufacturing sector, which has produced hundreds of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in investments, and our society has over the last 20 years experienced a level of technological innovation that vastly surpasses any period in human existence and would be considered absolutely miraculous by anyone born prior to the 20th century.

What AOC and Mad Maxine show us is that abject ignorance and despicable mendacity are not things bound by age, generation or personal experience. These people live in their own made-up dream world, and unfortunately, that dream world is shared by millions of similarly ignorant Americans.

Which precisely describes the basic working model for today’s Democrat Party.

That is all.

Trump Caps off a Terrific Tuesday by Using the “T” Word

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What the media won’t tell you about the Jussie Smollett whitewash…  – So, Jussie got off scott-free, and I don’t want to hear anyone talk to me about “white privilege” ever again. Talk to the hand, ‘cuz the ears ain’t listening.

Cook County state’s attorney Kimberly Foxx demonstrated yet again (as if we needed reminding) that Chicago politics are every bit as corrupt today as they were when Al Capone ran the city by allowing Smollett to skate on 16 felony charges brought after an exhaustive investigation by the Chicago police, saying that his “community service” and the forfeiting of his 10 grand in bail money constitutes “sufficient punishment” for his effort smear all Americans who support President Donald Trump. Pretty much no one outside of the actor’s family, circle of friends (which includes the Obamas and Kamala Harris) and cast of his failing TV show agreed.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been in the national public eye since he served as one of the many Clinton bag men during the mid-1990s. In all that time I’ve never found myself agreeing with him about anything. Until yesterday, that is, when he, seemingly as outraged as everyone else in America, called the prosecutor’s action “a whitewash from top to bottom.” Trust me, Rahm Emanuel knows a whitewash when he sees one.

Needless to say, Foxx’s corrupt deal with Smollett dominated the news cycle all day on Tuesday.  Here’s what didn’t dominate those news reports: Foxx’s super PAC was the beneficiary of a $408,000 contribution from… wait for it…GEORGE SOROS. Well, knock me over with a feather.

When you google “Soros $408,000 to Kimberly Foxx” you find that the Breitbart story linked above is the one and only story on this key item of information. That’s how horrible our fake news media truly is.

For those who are not aware, Soros announced a few years back that he was planning to spend $100 million investing in the campaigns of radical leftist local prosecutors like Foxx in his neverending efforts to destroy America from within. It’s a brilliant strategy when you think about it: After all, what better way to destroy our nation than by killing the public’s faith in its system of criminal justice? That’s what the Soros-created “Black Lives Matter” was all about, what the “hands up, don’t shoot” fantasy was all about, what Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch as Attorneys General was all about.

Many are speculating that Foxx may have been bribed to take her unsupportable action related to the Smollett case. I would submit that for a bribe to have taken place here, no direct exchange of funds need to have occurred. The influence could have been exerted with a simple promise from Soros or other major donor to pour even more money into that super PAC or the prosecutor’s favorite “charity” in the future. Not that Soros would ever do such a thing, of course. Winky-winky.

Another great day for Trump. – Many talking heads are calling the Smollett fiasco a “loss” for President Trump. That’s nuts. This is in fact a yuuuuuuuuuge win for the President, for the simple fact that everyone involved in making the corrupt deal is in fact a Democrat.

Combine that reality with the fact that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economy-killing “Green New Deal” went down in flames in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 57-0 with 43 Democrat cowards abstaining, and you see that MAGA Monday was followed by Terrific Tuesday. What a great week we have going here. Let’s keep it up.

How hypocritical are the Democrats when it comes to the Green New Deal? Even the bill’s senate co-sponsor, Ed Markey, refused to cast his vote in favor of the travesty.

This is also a yuuuuuuuuge win for the President, since it clearly demonstrates how un-serious the Democrats truly are when it comes to their “Climate Change” scam. After all, pretty much all of the senators who refused to go on record voting for the sham yesterday gave it their full-throated endorsement when it was introduced with great fanfare several weeks ago.

The party/fake news media joint talking points told us that this Green New Deal was literally going to save the planet, that the plant would literally die if we did not “do something” to save it, and that the way to “save” the planet was to abolish air travel, kill all the farting cattle, stop driving and build a bunch of rail lines, and destroy the free market system and become a socialist nation. Presumably, Hawaii would be on its own out there in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but that’s ok because we’d all be genuflecting to some socialist strong man from now on and that would allow us to rewrite history and pretend Hawaii was never part of the country anyway.

Oh, and by the way, we only have 12 years to do all of this, or we’ll all diiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But Tuesday, the same people who parroted all of these fake talking points said in effect, hey, just kidding.

Some of us already knew that, thanks.

And then this happened…:

He didn’t use the “T” word accidentally, folks. He does and says these things with specific intent. And we all “know the answer”, don’t we?

Yes, in our heart of hearts, we do.

That is all.

The Democrat Party is Waging a Generational War

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Turns out, one outright commie in the race is enough, even for Democrats. – New York City Mayor Bill “Meatless Mondays” DeBlasio thinks he is cut out to be our president, oh, he really does. So, he ventured up to New Hampshire to test the waters there yesterday, and boy was that a bad idea.

DeBlasio was the lead “attraction” for an event billed as a panel discussion about healthcare.  But it appears that no one in the Granite State much cares about healthcare, or getting up close and personal with Bill DeBlasio.

In total, just 20 people turned out for the event, which is really bad, but that becomes purely awful when you realize that 14 of the 20 people were sitting on the panel, with just six hearty souls serving as the “audience” for the event. Upon learning of the sad turnout, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway hilariously tweeted that “There are more people than this in my house every night for dinner.”  Oof.

These Democrat debates are going to be a hoot. – Don’t look now, but some guy you probably never heard of named Andrew Yang is the new Big Thing among the Millennial social media crowd that is always looking for a handout. Yang is…well, he’s uh…ummm…he’s a “tech entrepreneur,” which generally means he became fabulously wealthy creating some business that appeals to Millennials. Now, he’s basing a presidential campaign on the same concept, which in Democrat politics means that he’s proposing to give away a lot of money to Millennials.

So, a standard issue Democrat.

Yang has differentiated himself from the “forgive student loans,” “green new deal,” and “medicare for all” crowd by proposing something even more craven, what he calls a “Freedom Dividend” that simply gives $1,000 per month to … wait for it…EVERYBODY. Yes, that’s right: He’s just going to have the federal government write a check for a grand to 335 million Americans each month. For those interested in arithmetic, that comes to $335 billion each month, right at $4 TRILLION every year for a government that’s already running a trillion dollar budget deficit.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

When asked how he would pay for this latest Democrat money grab, Yang offers only a false analogy with Alaska: “What they are doing with oil money in Alaska, we can do for all of us around the country with advancing technology.”

Well, here’s what they do in Alaska: The Alaska government decades ago dedicated part of the money it collects from taxes and royalties from the state’s massive oil production (second in the U.S. only to Texas) and distributes an annual dividend to the state’s small number of citizens from the balance. But this is not a budget-busting handout – Alaska is able to do this only because it runs a significant budget SURPLUS almost every year thanks to its oil and gas industry. Indeed, the state’s constitution requires the budget to be balanced each year, unlike the federal government.

The amount of this annual payment varies with the health of the oil industry, which determines how much the state is able to collect in taxes and royalties. During the depths of the oil price bust a few years ago, the state had to suspend the dividend for one year because paying it out would have thrown its budget into a deficit situation.

Being a standard-issue Democrat, Yang’s proposal makes no such consideration. Other than his vague reference to somehow funding it with “advancing technology” – an idiotic message intended purely to deceive idiots – Yang never even mentions funding it within some budgetary constraint.

Like the dimwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with her “Green New Deal” and Bernie Sanders with his “Medicare for All”, Yang’s plan is to simply have the Federal Reserve print the money every month and hand it out to everyone. The inevitable result of such a program would be a rapid devaluation of the currency and massive inflation, meaning that all you Baby Boomers who spent the last several decades carefully saving money and planning a modest retirement based on the expectations of semi-responsible government and fairly stable economy can all go back to work, presumably as greeters at all the rapidly-disappearing Wal-Mart stores.

A word of warning: Amazon does not need nor hire greeters.

Make no mistake about this: What the Democrat Party is engaged in right now, today, is an organized, conscious, generational war that pits Millennials vs. the Baby Boom generation. That Party has in recent years made the conscious decision to toss organized labor overboard in favor of illegal aliens, and tossed Jews overboard in favor of Islamists, based on the calculation of which group might bring them more future votes. The Democrats right now are in the process of tossing Baby Boomers and even Gen-Xers over the side in favor a larger and younger future voting bloc.

This is just the latest example of the reality that the Democrat Party’s overriding motivation is not to do what is best for all Americans, but the acquisition and maintenance of political power.

Andrew Yang is just the latest manifestation of this intentional political strategy by the Democrats, and it’s working for him. His event in San Francisco last Friday drew a crowd of 3,000, which is 2,994 more than Bill DeBlasio could come up with in New Hampshire, and 1,000 more than Irish Bob O’Rourke could attract to his competing border rally with President Trump in El Paso last month. In the past month alone, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Yang raised $350,000 from 66,000 donors, which is enough to qualify him to participate in the Democrats’ upcoming first debate in June.

That debate is going to be little more than a competition to see which candidate can promise to print and throw away the most money America does not have on issues that Millennials care about. Because the Democrat Party is waging a generational war here, and everyone over the age of 40 is the enemy.

Wake up, people – this is deadly serious stuff.

That is all.

AOC is an Actress, and Other Bits of Democrat Chicanery

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day short takes on the passing scene…

Everyone should watch this video. – Trust me, just watch it. It’ll be the best 23 minutes you invest this week.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t a politician, she’s an actress. A puppet whose strings are being pulled behind the scenes by a group that calls itself the Justice Democrats, and is headed by the depraved Cenk Uygur.

This is all stuff I was not aware of, and of course our fake news media will never dream of reporting on any of it, so most of the general public will remain blissfully unaware. But isn’t it informative, and doesn’t it help explain so much?

Once you realize and accept this reality about the human sock puppet who is AOC, everything that has taken place with her over the past year, everything she says and does, makes perfect sense.

Wait, what? Um, isn’t that, like, collusion or something? – A super PAC set up to fund the campaign of Jeb! Bush in 2016 just got hit by the Federal Elections Commission with a massive fine for accepting $1.3 million in illegal contributions from Chinese-owned corporation American Pacific International Capital.

Very predictably, this illegal activity on the part of the Bush Campaign did not rise to headline news in your fake news media, and no Democrat in congress has called for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate this apparent collusion with China. Funny how that all works.

I wonder how many dead elderly Americans Newsweek polled in order to reach this conclusion? – This is a real, actual headline on a story at the ongoing disastrous failure that is Newsweek:

ELDERLY AMERICANS ARE DYING WITHOUT GETTING TO READ MUELLER’S REPORT – AND THEY’RE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT

I swear I do not make this stuff up. I mean, really, who could?

Who is this Brie Larsen, and why did her parents name her for a type of cheese? – Pat Sajak bemoans the way today’s social justice warriors have taken the fun out of literally everything:

Spoiled Billionaire Used To Getting His Way Lashes Out! – Fake environmentalist Tom Steyer – who made most of his fortune through coal investments – isn’t taking Nancy Pelosi’s new impeachment talking points well, and is too dumb to understand she’s lying.

Steyer, who has already invested tens of millions of dollars in goofy, pro-impeachment ad campaigns and plans to throw millions more down that particular rat hole, had this to say in response to Pelosi’s new fake position on the matter:

“Speaker Pelosi thinks ‘he’s just not worth it?’ Well, is defending our legal system ‘worth it?’ Is holding the President accountable for his crimes and cover-ups ‘worth it?’ Is doing what’s right ‘worth it?’ Or shall America just stop fighting for our principles and do what’s politically convenient?”

This guy is so. damn. naive. He actually thinks Democrats care about quaint notions like “principles.” Laughable.

When anti-gun activists suddenly realize the error of their ways… – The Daily Caller reports that a Connecticut anti-gun activist was kicked out of a hearing on the gun control issue when she was caught sending texts in which she threatened to … wait for it … SHOOT a Republican politician and other opponents of gun control.

I swear, you really cannot make this stuff up.
