Quick, Someone Get These Democrats A Self-Awareness Coach!

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s such a busy day that I thought I’d do some quick takes on the passing scene…

My take on the Academy Awards – Every Oscar went to some guy or woman I’ve never heard of for a movie I haven’t seen and won’t see in the future.

Oh wait: I have heard of Spike Lee, but after his childish display of petulance last night, I wish I hadn’t.

The lack of self-awareness is strong in this one… – Chelsea Clinton complains that her grandmother did not have access to Planned Parenthood.

Oh, my. Which grandmother was she talking about?  Grandmother Rodham, or Grandmother Clint…er, Hubb…er, never mind.

Speaking of lack of self-awareness, it’s a damn shame her parents didn’t possess such foresight. – Alexandria “The Boss” Ocasio-Cortez now says that today’s parents should not have any more kids because of, like, climate change and stuff, and there’s, like, this sort of “scientific consensus” that their lives will be hard, or something.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

For the record, the “scientific consensus” is that children born today will experience a lower percentage of poverty, lower percentage of hunger and disease and deprivation, and a higher standard of living and longer life expectancy than all prior generations of human beings.

But “The Boss” has her dogmatic fantasies, and as I pointed out this morning, confusing her with things like facts and truth and reality is a fool’s errand.

Why, that’s exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel about Harry Reid! – Harry Reid to CNN this morning:  “Is there anything I think the President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person and so frankly I don’t see anything he’s doing right.”

By the way, after President Trump punched back at Reid’s taunt, the fake news media bashed Trump because Harry Reid has cancer.

You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Can someone please get these Democrats a self-awareness coach, STAT?

“…now let me tell you about all of these overtly-socialist policy ideas I support, starting with the Green New Deal…” – Here’s what Kamala Harris told a CNN interviewer this morning: “I certainly think that we should all want that our leaders do not engage in name-calling because that’s really just a very low-level of discourse,” says KamalaHarris. “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”  Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.

*sigh*

She’ll just take all that cash behind closed doors. – Also from the news-fakers at CNN – so take it for what it is worth – Fauxcahontas is now ordering her staffers to be quiet about taking money from wealthy donors: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is laying down a new rule for her presidential campaign: No fundraisers, dinners, receptions or phone calls with wealthy donors.”

Gosh, Judging from that cap, Mr. Evers must be a white supremacist. I’ve been assured that’s a correct assumption by the entirety of our nation’s news media establishment.:

Jussie Smollett and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – Keeping Hoax Alive

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

Hey, it worked for that other racist over in Virginia. – Virginia’s baby-killing racist governor Ralph Northam appears to have shown the way for leftwing nitwits caught doing bad things all over the nation, and Jussie Smollett’s been paying attention.

Basically, Gov. Blackface’s strategy has been to lie, deny and go about his business, a strategy copied by his Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom have survived the media firestorm, such as it was, surrounding their bad acts, and continue to govern the once-great Commonwealth. Actors, even bad ones, are typically pretty good at observing and learning, and that’s what Smollett has obviously done.

After being arrested and arraigned and seeing Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson deliver one of the most epic press conferences in the city’s history at his expense Thursday morning, Smollett was right back on the set of his TV show, “Empire”, a few hours later, filming new scenes and lying and denying his role in blatant hoax he has perpetrated on our country.

“I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family,” he reportedly told the cast and crew, “I swear to God, I did not do this.” Hooboy. So, the strategy adopted by Gov. Blackface is now being mainstreamed, and the Chicago PD, with its long, sordid history of corruption, had better hope its officers dotted every “i” and crossed every “t” in the conduct of their investigation.

Because here’s the deal on this, folks: The fake news media and Democrat Party hate the fact that they have been forced to report negative things about a guy they spent 2 solid weeks building up into some sort of modern-day civil rights hero. Jussie’s story fit their preferred narrative about President Trump and his supporters, and now they’ve been forced off that narrative, something they can’t happily abide.

If they find the slightest excuse to hang their hat on here in terms of some irregularity about how the Chicago PD went about its business, they will latch onto it and pound it into the public’s consciousness until Smollet has not only been set free but gotten the raise that apparently motivated him to plan and commit the hoax to begin with.

As impressive as Superintendent Johnson was in his press conference yesterday, history tells us that the chances the Chicago PD conducted itself strictly by the book in this case seem disturbingly slim. This story, and the fake news media’s treatment of it, isn’t over yet. Indeed, unlike the Northam case – which they’ve all dropped like a hot potato because there ain’t no way to get that atrocity back on the preferred narrative path – the media engagement on the Smollett case may be just beginning.

Green New Deal Update! – Professor at New York University – where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez allegedly received a college “education” – Ian Bremmer issued a tweet that caught my highly-trained eye yesterday:

Bremmer is probably a huge fan of the socialist fantasy that the Green New Deal and its plan to replace the miracle of air travel with the popular 19th century mode of transportation represents, and he no doubt thinks those numbers are somehow impressive. But they would only be impressive to someone who has no knowledge of the actual history of high-speed rail and how ridiculously expensive it is to build and operate.

We’ve already seen the example of California having to cancel most of Jerry Brown’s great high-speed rail boondoggle as the original $29 billion cost estimate climbed well north of $100 billion with no end in sight. Yet, despite that clear object lesson, AOC and her fellow socialist Democrats would have us believe that we can just slap down hundreds of thousands of miles of high speed rail all over our country and make those pesky airplanes obsolete as a result, and do it all in a span of a mere decade.

Look again at Bremmer’s numbers: If you do the math and add them up (something AOC is likely incapable of doing) you’ll see that they total to a little over 27,000 miles. Globally. Worldwide.

Oh.

Again, that number might seem impressive to someone who, like AOC, has no understanding of the history of high speed rail. It becomes less impressive when one understands that the first such rail line was completed and put into operation in …wait for it…1964, just after Lyndon Johnson became president.

That’s right: In 55 years, the entire world has laid just 27,000 miles of high speed rail. For those who are math-challenged, that comes out to right at a paltry 500 miles per year, and no, I did not leave out a zero.

Oh.

But it gets even less impressive than that. The first successful test of a “high speed” electric rail system took place in … are you sitting down? … 1903, when an electric rail car designed by Siemens & Halske crossed a speed of over 200 kmph. That’s right: The “high-speed” rail technology has been around for 116 years, and in all that time, across the entirety of Planet Earth, just 27,000 miles of such rail has been successfully completed, and 19,000 of those miles were built by the one of the most brutal and heinous communist regimes in world history.

Oh.

As unimpressive as all that history is, even less impressive is just how “fast” these high-speed rail trains are able to run. The fastest in the world, the “maglev train service began operating in 2004 with trains reaching a top speed of 431 km/h (268 mph), and remains the fastest high-speed service in the world.”

Oh.

That’s the fastest, mind you. The standard for “high-speed” rail is that “new lines in excess of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph) and existing lines in excess of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph) are widely considered to be high-speed.”

Oh.

Meanwhile, your standard airliner operates at speeds of 400-500 mph, double and triple the average “high-speed” rail system. Plus, unless you’re on Southwest or just had bad luck, most flights go straight from departure to your final destination with no stops, or no more than one. If you read the fine print of the “Green New Deal” you’ll see that the socialists’ plan is for the transportation system to be “accessible to all”, meaning those “high speed” trains are going to be stopping in every city, town, village and convenience store along the way.

Oh.

So, if AOC and her compatriots have their way, all those quick weekend jaunts to Vegas some of you have been taking will become week-long, tiresome journeys. All you Texas Aggie fans who love to fly out on Fridays to take in your football team’s Saturday games with South Carolina and Alabama, forget it. The nation’s tourism business will die a very quick and ugly death. No more Disney World. No more Broadway. No more fun, no more joy, because the first job of socialism is to do away with fun and joy, after all. Then it all goes downhill from there.

Oh.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s little walk through “high-speed” rail history, which will also become your future if AOC and the rest of the Democrat commies get their way.

That is all.

Why Ed Markey is Desperate to Avoid Voting on His “Green New Deal”

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

Oh. Why, nobody could’ve seen that coming. Oh, wait… – Useless North Carolina RINO Senator Richard Burr told the leering press yesterday that the incredibly mis-named Senate Intelligence Committee has found no evidence of “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team or Trump Administration. Go figure.

Like American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller, Senate Intel is winding down its fake investigation because there is no “there” there – never was, isn’t now, and never will be. Democrats and fake journalists who really bought into this fantasy play expressed their shock and dismay, but Burr and his partner in this fake investigation – Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner – are finally giving up the ghost and directing their committee to move onto greener pastures.

Hey, here’s an idea – maybe y’all can go back to doing your actual job and start exercising a little congressional oversight over the nation’s still-corrupt “intelligence” community. What a novel concept.

Sen. Ed Markey wants to “sponsor” the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal”… – but he just doesn’t want to “vote” for the incredibly destructive “Green New Deal.” That was the message sent out by the despicable Democrat from Massachusetts on Tuesday after Mitch McConnell told the press he is making plans to hold a vote on the hilariously inept congressional resolution that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez rolled out into the public domain last week.

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell said, “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” In other words, the Senate Majority Leader wants to get every Democrat member in that body on the record supporting things like destroying the miracle of air flight, destroying the nation’s thriving oil and gas industry, making cars too expensive for all but the wealthy to afford and throwing the United States quickly into an economic depression that would make the 1930s look like a walk in the park.

Sen. Markey wants none of that voting nonsense. He wants to be able to keep up his 30-year practice of being a rank demagogue on the “Global Warming” issue without actually having votes in favor of the invariably-Socialist/fascist “solutions” proposed by the fake “green” community dirtying up his record.

Thus it was that, shortly after McConnell made his promise to hold a vote, Markey issued this response that reeks of desperation:

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Yeah, it’s a “beginning” all right – Markey may or may not realize it just yet, but the roll-out of this creepy proposal to turn our country into just another starving, third-world socialist/fascist failed state is indeed the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party’s quest to regain the levers of power in Washington. Democrats have only managed to win elections over the past half-century by lying about their real beliefs and intentions. The Green New Deal removes that mask for all to see, and it is an incredibly ugly face that most Americans will never support.

So, in case you’re wondering, that is why Markey and other senate Democrats will do everything they can to avoid casting a vote on AOC’s incredibly destructive proposal.

Hey, maybe this is another reason… – You don’t have to believe me or any other conservative voice on how awful the Green New Deal really is – you could listen to the founder of the far-left eco-terrorist group “GreenPeace” if you want.

Patrick Moore, in an interview with the New American, basically characterized Markey’s proposal as a global suicide pact:  “It is quite amazing that someone that is in government — actually elected to the government of the United States of America — would propose that we eliminate all fossil fuels in 12 years,” he said in an on-camera interview with The New American from Canada. “This would basically result, if we did it on a global level, it would result in the decimation of the human population from 7-odd billion down to who knows how few people.”

Oh. Well, gosh, maybe it isn’t such a great idea, then.

Hold the vote, Mitch. Put these soulless ghouls on the record for posterity.

That is all.

Gavin Newsom Blows Green Wet Dreams to Smithereens

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This afternoon, California Governor Gavin Newsom kicked Jerry Brown’s great high-speed rail boondoggle to the sidelines, announcing a major scaling-back of the $100 billion Bankruptcy Express:

“Let’s level about the high-speed rail,” Newsom said. “Let’s be real, the current project as planned would cost too much and, respectfully, take too long. Right now, there simply isn’t a path to get from Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A. I wish there were.”

Oh.

But wait – what about this “Green New Deal”, and its pipedream promise to “build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”? If we can’t build a single such line from “Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A.”, what then of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s grand plans to connect apparently every significant city, town, village and dot-on-the-map with such lines in 10 short years?

The answer is obvious to anyone whose cranial synapses are firing, which apparently excludes all elected Democrats and everyone working at a major fake news media outlet like CNN.

It is important to remember that, about a decade ago, the initial estimated cost for Jerry Brown’s Boondoggle came in at $29 billion. As the years dragged on the estimates of course rose – as happens with any big-government socialist land grab. As Newsom pulls the plug on about 2/3rds of the thing, the current cost estimates are now in the $100 billion range and rising every day.

So when you see some talking head “expert” tossing out a Green New Deal cost of $40 trillion in today’s dollars, just remember that a decade from now that number will almost certainly have climbed well to the north of $120 trillion or so.

Gov. Newsom is a far, far leftist himself, and certainly didn’t mean to do it, but his announcement today well and truly put the leftist, fake green lie to any rational thoughts that AOC’s “Green New Deal” might ever be doable.

To quote Shakespeare, “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

The Democrat Party’s Descent Into Full-Throated Fascism is Now Complete

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

This was a really important week, and it is crucial that we all understand why. This was the week when the mask of socialist fascism came completely off the ugly face of the national Democrat Party, and there is no going back, hard though they will try.

Simply put, all the Democrats had to do over the next two years to have a real shot a regaining all levers of power in our nation’s capital was not be batsh*t crazy, and they couldn’t do it. They can’t help themselves. This is, after all, their true nature, and has been for almost a full century now, when communist loyalists began making real inroads into their ranks, our media and our educational system.

Prior generations of the party’s politicians were able to hide their real desires to turn our nation into just another failed socialist/fascist third world country behind an ever-evolving series of false talking points. But that has all been ripped away thanks to the all-consuming hatred of President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) harbored by the latest collection misanthropes, racists, women-abusers, ageing Bolshevik grumps, fake Indians and mindless children who now represent the party in congress and Virginia’s state government.

It wasn’t just this week – the batsh*t craziness has been accelerating for a long time now. Anyone paying real attention recognized the Democrats’ lurch to full-fledged fascist thuggery with their creation and full endorsement of the Antifa movement in response to the 2016 election. That move was Adolph Hitler 101 for anyone who’s ever read a book about 1930s Germany. But still the party’s leadership and fake news media agents maintained the fiction that the old Bolshevik Bernie Sanders was some sort of outlier among its ranks, just an old grump – who’s really an “independent” after all – who just got lucky and caught a flukish wave of young voters in his challenge to the Pantsuit Princess in 2016.

But then came the catalyst – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a cute, 29 year-old unabashed socialist/fascist with a bright smile, a never-quiet mouth, and a middle-school backpack filled with half-baked socialist “ideas” lucked into a win in a Bronx congressional district and became an instant media star. This hopelessly ignorant but social-media-savvy cretin has increasingly become the “thought leader” – to the extent she can be credited with actually having “thoughts” – of the Democrat Party, and that has led to a growing competition among those who aspire to be the Democrat 2020 presidential nominee and other party leaders to see who can be the most leftist and thuggish among them.

Over the last two weeks we have had multiple Democrat presidential hopefuls endorse a 70% income tax rate, one endorse an even more punitive 90% rate, and another throw out the coup de gras, a clearly unconstitutional tax levied not on incomes, but on assets. To top it all off, another aspirant to the party’s nomination – Irish Bob O’Rourke – went so far as to publicly question the continued validity of the entire Constitution itself, a thought pretty much all Democrats have harbored in their minds but only expressed in hushed voices when among friends.

So the Party’s mask was already slipping, its elastic headband fraying at the edges from the constant strain of having to hold back its members’ true intentions for all these decades, when Ocasio Cortez dropped the figurative socialist/fascist Mother Of All Bombs into the public domain this past Wednesday night: Her “Green New Deal.” Oh, my. The mask didn’t just fall to the floor, it disintegrated like Humpty Dumpty, never to be put back together again.

Within hours of rolling her GND outline onto her congressional website, Ocasio Cortez’s paper version of the Bolshevik Revolution had attracted the endorsements of no fewer than 70 Democrat members of congress and almost all of the currently-announced presidential candidates. 43-year veteran of congress Ed Markey of Massachusetts went in whole-hog, announcing himself as a co-sponsor of this fake green Communist Manifesto.

After a fierce backlash from the public and in some parts of the media, someone – probably Nancy Pelosi – convinced Ocasio Cortez to pull the atrocity down from her website, and she and her staff have been out there for the last two days denying the thing was ever posted in the first place, because lying and scrubbing history is what socialist fascists do. But that action was, as they say, a day late and a dollar short – there is no going back from the crossing of that particular Rubicon.

So now, President Trump will be able to pound his opponents over the head with their full-throated endorsements of all the key elements of socialist fascism for the next 20 months, presenting American voters with the clearest choice they could possibly have between the America they’ve always known or a lurch into the same third-world status now enjoyed by the starving people of Venezuela.

It didn’t have to be this way – all the Democrats had to do was to not be batsh*t crazy. But hey, when you actually are batsh*t crazy, it’s really hard to keep up appearances.

That is all.

The Twitter Week In Review: Racist Dems, Green Frauds, State of the Union

The Twitter Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends On Twitter, Either)

[Here’s a review of the week just past taken directly from the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed. If this gets a good response, we might just make it a weekly feature.  Enjoy.]

It all started with a really tedious football game. Unfortunately, things only went downhill from there…

Sean Davis sums up the fake news media double standard on reporting sexual abuse scandals…

When you’re running for president and nobody notices…

But…but…but the fake news media and their Democrat masters assure me this is not an “emergency”…

In case you missed it because your fake news media buried the story…

Speaking of #fakenews, didja know that Columbus caused Climate Change?  *sigh*…

That time Democrats wouldn’t support a law banning the killing of live-born babies…

Wise lawyer advice: Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to in advance. Nobody informed Senator Spartacus Jazz Hands…

James Woods knocks another one right out of the park…

Brit Hume is worth following on Twitter as well…

Why yes, yes she is lacking in the most basic common sense…

Democrat hypocrisy, part 8,888…

And we’re just now getting to the State of the Union on Tuesday – what a week!

ICYMI, I live-streamed the State of the Union, and all the critics agreed it was epic…

Also, this happened, and Lieawatha had no good answer for it…

If @AOC has her way, the nation’s schools will soon be filled with girls with nicked-up legs from using those “safety” razors…

Trump just keeps waving that darn magic wand!

If you don’t follow Mollie Hemingway on Twitter, you’re doing Twitter all wrong…

I’m very tired of climate alarmism – can you tell?

This was also a thing…

Then that whole “Green New Deal” thing got dropped, and hilarity and embarrassment quickly ensued…

They told her to wear glasses because they’d make her look smarter.  They were wrong…

Hey, where are the unicorns?

San Fran Nan tried to change the subject…

…but it didn’t work…

Oh.

But hey, they fixed it!

Goebbels would have been so darn proud of this bunch…

And finally, the end came for the most embarrassing talking points document ever created by a federal officeholder..

But enough about that – let’s end this weekly review with an elected Democrat hilariously lying about socialism (which, come to think of it, is what the Green New Deal is all about, too)…

Dan Crenshaw, the Anti-AOC, Perfectly Sums Up the “Green New Deal”

The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Devastation in 280 characters or less. – He isn’t as flashy or bug-eyed crazy as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but in his own quiet way, Texas freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw is every bit the rising star on the right as the infamous, roof-top-dancing AOC is on the left.

After two days of hilarity and 800-word detailed analyses of AOC’s Climate Scam wet dream that she refers to as the “Green New Deal,” Congressman Crenshaw – a rare Republican who actually “gets” the potential power of social media –  took to Twitter this evening to completely dismantle the farce in three short sentences:

Ouch.

OMG, AOC, the ball’s all, like, totally in your, like, court or something. You know?

Here is just how perfectly devastating and succinct Crenshaw’s tweet truly is:

Sentence 1: Gets directly to the critical point that conclusively demonstrates this particular document produced by the Global Climate Scam is not about “climate” at all;

Sentence 2: Lays out the absolute truth about the way socialist/fascist brutes throughout history have always operated – you must first destroy before you can begin to “build” your socialist paradise.  Like Venezuela, for instance;

Sentence 3: Thanks the Democrats for so starkly and absolutely showing their true brutish face to the public, an event so rare in modern times that those of us among the thinking must do everything we can to appreciate and preserve it for posterity.

Thank you, Congressman Crenshaw, for posting what is in fact a truly perfect tweet.

That is all.

As Absurd as it is, We Must Take This “Green New Deal” Very Seriously

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

Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious.

The nation’s modern history is filled with example after example of the political left being laughed out of the room when rolling out similarly idiotic proposals, only to ultimately see those very same proposals be enacted into law years later, after our education system and fake news media had brainwashed another generation of children and young adults to believe it’s just a peachy idea. The best example is nationalized healthcare: The Pantsuit Princess was the target of harsh ridicule from all parts of society when she rolled out her byzantine plan for a government takeover of 1/7th of the national economy in 1993-94. But 16 short years later, America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – signed a very similar plan into law.

Twenty years ago, virtually no one believed we’d ever see young people with male genitals and musculature be allowed to steal athletics trophies from young girls, but today that is happening all over the nation, and anyone who speaks up in defense of the young girls is demonized by the news media and Democrat politicians. Just a decade ago, those who predicted that we’d soon be seeing “women’s groups” like NOW remain studiously silent as radical Muslims were allowed by state and local governments to practice Sharia Law and female genital mutilation were ridiculed as being alarmist and “racist”. But today that is happening in many parts of the country with the full approval and sanction of the Democrat Party and these “women’s groups”.

Just a handful of years ago, anyone who predicted that a Democrat Speaker of the House would refuse to hold a vote on a pro-Israel congressional resolution for fear of offending the large and growing anti-Semitic segment of her caucus would have been laughed out of the room. But that is happening right now, in real time.

So if you think the Democrats aren’t deadly serious about this “Green New Deal,” you should back up and think again. An old, 43-year veteran of congress like Ed Markey didn’t sign on as AOC’s Straw Man (“if I only had a brain”) for her walk down the fake environmental Yellow Brick Road just for fun.

Ed Markey doesn’t even know what fun is anymore. He’s nearing the end of his time on this earth, and he has worked to turn the United States into a socialist/fascist state for his entire life.  If you think he is not serious about seizing your land and assets and printing 40 Trillion dollars in order to devalue our currency and turn America into just another third-world country, then you haven’t been paying attention to his career to date, and you must have also slept through the Obama years.

Yes, the “Green New Deal” is utterly, completely absurd, an unworkable fantasy concocted by demented and childish minds. Yes, as I pointed out last night, the plan rips the mask off of the true fascist nature of the global Green movement, but that global Climate Scam has made steady inroads into every aspect of our daily lives for 50 years now. Did you think they were going to just stop at some point?

We all need to remember that those demented and childish – and yes, evil in many cases – minds really believe their own bullsh*t.  These are minds that have been completely brainwashed into believing that the abject horse manure they’re slinging out into the public domain this week is going to … wait for it… save the world!  Literally.

So yes, by all means, laugh at these nitwits today and bathe them in the ridicule they have so richly earned. But also take them very seriously and remember that they – not you – own our nation’s education system and news media. No matter how crazy you know their ideas to be, remember that they will continue to deploy every asset at their disposal to brainwash the current and every succeeding generation of American school children into believing all of this nonsense until they reach that critical mass, that point in time when they will be able to force it all into official government policy.

In 1995, a very wise man told me that “all the pinks and reds have gone green.” Yesterday, all those pinks and reds shed their green facade for all to see. In doing so, they reveal that they, like Hillary Clinton in 1993, think they have already reached that critical mass and are convinced they can now reveal their true nature without paying a political price.

Laughing at them and ridiculing them is not enough: We must stop being timid and become bold in opposing them. Be bold, for the sake of your children and grandchildren.

That is all.

AOC’s “Green New Deal” Removes the Mask From Just Another Socialist/Fascist Face

The Thursday Energy Update
(Because Energy Fuels our Lives)

Just when you thought the ongoing Climate Scam couldn’t possibly get any more absurd in its fantasy-based thought, in steps Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC). After AOC rolled out her “plan” – in the form of a long, amateurishly-written non-binding resolution – ” Dan Kish, distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, described it best:

“A six-page, non-binding resolution marketed as a ‘War Plan’ proves Congressman Cortez isn’t prepared and hasn’t done her homework,” he said, “Running the world’s greatest economy on unicorn farts and rainbow stew all run by masterminds in Washington, D.C., is a fool’s errand.”

To illustrate just how absurd, fantasy-based, brutish and non-specific the “plan” truly is, all one need to do is read this short outtake from it:

“Totally [totally!] overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere [everywhere!], build out high speed rail at a scale at which air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transportation available to all, with (sic) goal to replace very combustion-engine vehicle”

So, here’s the reality of how that would happen. The federal government would bankrupt the country by foregoing trillions of tax dollars subsidizing electric vehicles, while at the same time bankrupting millions of Americans by raising taxes on gasoline and diesel to levels that make it too expense to drive internal combustion engine cars and long-haul trucks.  This will in turn create massive jobs losses and food shortages throughout the nation as it becomes too expensive to transport things like groceries and other consumer goods via large trucks or traditional rail.

Next, the government will have to condemn and seize millions upon millions of acres of privately-owned lands to accommodate all the thousands of miles of rights-of-way for all the new rail lines the socialist nitwits plan to build. This will bankrupt thousands of family farmers and millions of other Americans whose livings depends upon the use of their private property, but hey, at least they’ll have charging stations available to charge their non-existent electric vehicles that are now even more unaffordable.

All the new rail construction will have to be completed using diesel-fired vehicles since the EV technology to run such massive equipment is non-existent, and oh by the way, we’ll have to build a whole bunch of new nuclear, natural gas and coal-fired power plants to provide electricity to all of those charging stations that – as AOC’s tiny little mind assures us – will now exist “everywhere”.

Oh, and once it becomes too expensive to travel by air – which will of necessity happen long before a single mile of new rail line is built – then places like California, Florida, New York City and Las Vegas – not to mention Hawaii and Alaska – can forget about their tourism industries, right? Right. Even after the “high-speed rails” are built, who is going to want to travel from, say, Alabama to Las Vegas on a train that, while it may achieve a high-end speed of 250 mph or more (roughly 1/2 the speed of a passenger jet), will no doubt be required by the socialist/fascist government envisioned by AOC to stop 40 times on the way in order to be “available to all”?

This atrocity is not worth any more words than I’ve already spent here. The outline is six pages long, can be found at this link, and is chock full of exactly the kind of mushy-headed socialist/fascist thought that has been the overriding, driving goal behind the Climate Scam since its beginnings 50 years ago.

Read it at your own risk.  Or don’t.  Just know that the mask has finally come off of the true face of the “Climate” movement, and it looks exactly the same as every other socialist/fascist face that has come in the past.

That is all.
