The Ideology Now Running the Democratic Party Looks Like a Classic Cult

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

Every camera phone these days has a feature that can flip the focus from “selfie” to the outside world for a more conventional shot. All of it done with a quick touch to the screen.

That’s as good a high-tech explanation as any of projection in the psychological sense.

Apart from deliberate projection, which is regularly used as a political tactic as per Saul Alinsky, there is the more classic and unconscious projection that happens among true believers of the same ilk.

Take a look at what happens when one of those believers is caught telling the truth about what he’d like to do to Trump voters: DNC member David Atkins openly suggesting that 75 million Americans need to be “deprogrammed.”

While Atkins wonders how anyone could be a Trump supporter, many of us wonder how a leftist who may have been initially attracted to feel-good ideas like “tolerance” and “diversity” could publicly advocate forceful “deprogramming” of 75 million of his fellow citizens (in refugee camps? concentration camps?) for the sin of disagreeing with him about a political candidate. How does that happen?

Here’s a little of how projection works: Most of us are capable of powerful emotions. We also have emotions about our powerful emotions, which complicates matters even further. This can terrify people, especially if they already have trouble distinguishing between thoughts, feelings and actions. How could I have such horrible, evil, hateful thoughts? Does that make me evil too?

Among the variety of responses possible when emotions become too intense or painful for a person to tolerate is a kind of flip of focus — just like that camera. The subject disowns his uncomfortable or embarrassing feelings and quite unconsciously attributes them to others — often to the person or group on which he has already been so intensely focused.

It’s much easier to feel justified in advocating full-blown persecution of those he hates if he can view himself as a victim. To add insult to injury, this is all in the name of “tolerance.”

What happens when true victims of a paranoia-fueled vendetta are themselves called paranoid? How do we know who to believe?

Do you think leftism is like a cult?

Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha and the McCloskeys in St. Louis know firsthand how the propaganda media works full-time to confuse the public about who are the criminals and who are the law-abiding citizens.

The inability to distinguish or accept the origins of one’s rage is a building block of paranoia and persecution complexes.

A culture that positively values personal responsibility rather than collective guilt is infinitely healthier not just politically but psychologically.

Atkins goes on to project another charge against Trump supporters, claiming they are in a “death cult against reality & basic decency.”

If ever there were an ideology that resembles a classic cult, it is the leftism, socialism and communism of today, which now control much of what used to be the Democratic Party.

In 2017, I outlined some of the more obvious comparisons in an article about how liberalism is like a cult.

Cults feed and grow off collectivism and groupthink. That is why they must always demonize dissent, individuality and personal responsibility.

Remember when the left lectured us (when do they not?) about “Hate, hate — we have to root out hate!” That should have been our first clue that they were getting ready to unleash an avalanche of hate upon us, and they did.

The pattern is so often repeated that we can just about predict what they’ll do by watching what they accuse everyone else of next.

For his mental health and our safety, David Atkins and others like him need to flip their cameras to “selfie.” That, or take a good, long look in the mirror.

Mid-Day Update: The Red Wave is Rolling and Dems are Panicking

Some quick updates on what is happening out there in the key states…

Check out this early voting data from Maricopa County, Arizona:

Brutal.

This is happening in Florida:

The President is on a pace to win Florida by about 6-8% of the vote, possibly more. In the early vote count today, only 4 Florida counties are showing Democrat majority votes. Stunning.

All this news and the flood tide of turnout in Republican areas of PA today has the Biden campaign now putting out wishful thinking messages like this one:

FACT CHECK: No, the Biden campaign has NO WAY to get to 270 without PA and FL. NONE.

With panic now setting in among Democrats, their corrupt toadies in the news media are resorting to this kind of disinformation:

FACT CHECK: The U.S. Constitution provides no role whatsoever for the news media in determining the winner of any election. NONE. ZERO. ZIP. NADA.

The day could not be off to a better start folks. Keep it going – vote, vote, vote.

We Will Not Go Quietly Into The Night

Guest Piece by Peggy Ryan

America is on the brink of a socialist takeover Conspirators who want to take everything from us, plunder our wealth, and rule our people, are in the final stages of overthrowing our Constitu-tional Republic. They’ve been executing their plan for years, for decades.

The left won a game-changing victory early on when they appropriated our free press, gained control of our central communications center. Today our once-free press is an exact replica of Nazi Germany’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. The head of that ministry, Joseph Goebbels envisioned an “empire that would control schools, universities, film, radio, and propaganda”. Sound familiar?

Goebbels’ strategy to control the people is already implemented across the US:

“He [Goebbels] combined all the newspaper, radio, publications and art activities in Germany into one vast propaganda machine.”[Media]

“Goebbels subjected artists and journalists to state control and eliminated all Jews and political opponents from positions of influence, staged a massive book burning in Berlin, where univer-sity students destroyed the works of Jewish and other blacklisted authors in huge bonfires”.[Cancel Culture]

– Goebbels created an atmosphere of fear and hatred among the people. Then, “after the as-sassination of a German diplomat [George Floyd], by a Jewish student [cop] Goebbels [Democrats] called for spontaneous demonstrations”. “When ‘protests’ were over, “rampag-ing mobs had killed 91 Jews, burned more than 900 synagogues, destroyed nearly 7,000 Jew-ish businesses.” [‘Peaceful’ Protests]

In addition to classic propaganda tactics, our Media Ministry inflicts psychological/emotional abuse on the American people, Name calling, Witholding, Accusing and blaming, Gaslighting. and (projection). This abuse causes anxiety, fear, and depression, conditions that often lead to learned helplessness where the victim effectively gives up. Oh we don’t see ourselves giving up but how many of us can’t watch or listen to the news anymore? How many cower in fear on news of a mass shooting because we know they’re coming for our guns. How often do we fear a terrorist will be identified as white, conservative, or Christian because the media beatdown is inevitable?

But our Media Ministry doesn’t just work to depress the opposition, they use thought control, cult tactics to recruit followers from the vulnerable population.

• Milieu Control: Control information/communication within the environment and within the indi-vidual. (media)

• Confession: Sins, as defined by the group, confessed to a personal monitor or publicly. (white/entitled)

• Sacred Science: The group’s doctrine or ideology is the ultimate Truth, beyond all questioning or dispute. (climate change)

• Dispensing of existence: A mind control tactic where the group decides who has the right to exist and who does not. (abortion on demand)

The indoctrinated look to media/social media as their leader, strive for compliance with the group. They display common symptoms of cult followers ,won’t listen to ‘outsiders’, shut out any opposing views, turn on any who dare to speak against their leaders including family.

Having beaten down the American people and herded a substantial number into their cult, the cabal moves to take permanent control of the U.S. government in 2016 with Hillary Clinton as supreme leader. When Donald Trump foils that plot the left unites to oust a sitting President with the Russia hoax, a palace coup. When that also fails they launch a political impeachment, but alas another loss.

It was looking bleak for the insurgents but then they received ‘the gift’ the pandemic.

Every collectivist revolution rides in on a Trojan horse of “emergency”. It was the tactic of Lenin, Hitler, and Mussolini…And “emergency” became the justification of the subsequent steps. This technique of creating emergency is the greatest achievement that demagoguery attains. — Herbert Hoover

Governors use the virus to take control of every citizen, every business in their state. They impose blatantly unconstitutional orders to test the waters for martial law, for nationalizing businesses once they assume control

Governors are remarkably dismissive of the massive damage they inflict on their citizens, over 100,000 businesses closed for good, more deaths from drugs and suicides as a result of lock-downs than from the virus. It’s almost like they don’t care about the people.

Next, Governors move to openly steal the 2020 election. Millions of supplemental ballots are sent out. Governors close polling places to limit in-person voting, Kentucky Closes 95%,Georgia may close all but two, Maryland Slashes Polling Locations By 85%.

Voter fraud, lost/destroyed ballots are popping up everywhere with the mail-in ballot scam yet we’re told it’s all good, no fraud, no cheating.

So can we now stop pretending that we have a bias or left-wing press? What we have is an anarchistic propaganda unit hell-bent on destroying this country. Like the 911 terrorists who used our own planes to obliterate the twin towers, this enemy commandeered our free press, is using its legacy of trust and Constitutional protections to shield them as they openly attack America.

And it’s in our face. Though their own reference, The Dictator’s Handbook, warns them to keep the revolution on the down-low, not tip their hand, these goons can’t help themselves:

– Speaker Pelosi: “One Way or Another,’ Trump Will Not Be President in Ten Months”

– George Soros: “Trump ‘Will Disappear In 2020 Or Even Sooner’”

“Democratic data firm predicts ‘chaos’ on election night with Donald Trump set for landslide victory which will take days to be revealed as victory for Joe Biden thanks to postal votes”

– Military would escort Trump from the White House if he loses but refuses to leave office.

So aside from handwringing and crying ‘no fair’, what can we do? Do we hope for another 2016 where we overwhelm the system with turnout. Will it matter if our votes aren’t counted or re-ported? To paraphrase Joseph Stalin: It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes and report the votes.

The cabal’s election plan is to declare Biden the winner as soon as they can show him in the lead. The Media Ministry will then showcase Democrats, Republicans, and Constitutional scholars to say the President must concede or risk a Constitutional crisis. And if the President still dares to challenge the scheme, these traitors will openly call for the military to drag the President from the White House. It will be chaotic, happening too fast to get a handle on it until the results are etched in stone.

No, no, a thousand times no. This is our country, our government, our liberty. They cannot take it without a fight. But we can’t defeat our assailants if we don’t name them, can’t stop them if we don’t recognize the attacks for what they are, an attempt to subjugate the American people.

The Democrat party is America’s enemy; the deep state is America’s enemy; the media is America’s enemy. And the enemies are within the gate. We don’t need to just stop this invasion, we need to drive out the insurrectionists before it’s too late.

The Media Ministry keeps badgering the President to say he’ll go quietly. Do they truly believe that if they cheat, even if enemy media validates their fraudulent victory, that the American people will go quietly into the night? Or will we follow in our Founding Father’s footsteps and rise to defend our freedom?

As Patrick Henry warned:

“Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, Sir, let it come!”

Democrat Claim of Systemic Racism is a Bitter Pill to Swallow

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

As Democrats continue to put all their eggs in the “America is a racist country” basket, courageous black Americans are leaving the Democrat plantation in significant numbers to support Donald Trump.

Here’s a perfect example: Ohio Democrat State Rep just went public and endorsed Trump for re-election. Why should that require courage?

It has been clear for decades that it serves the Democrat agenda for the great majority of blacks and other minorities to be dependent on government without whose “largesse” they could not survive. Minorities were just the first. This is the plan they are now expanding to impose on everyone.

Democrats therefore, have a vested interest in the narrative that black people cannot get ahead in “racist America.”  That narrative actually feeds on itself because if one believes it,   why bother trying?

Democrats viciously discount and demean highly successful blacks unless they pay lip-service to the notion that others still cannot be so successful.  See: Oprah Winfrey

Consequently, black conservatives are among the greatest threats to the Left & the Democrat Party because they defy their narrative and actively speak out against it. The list of black conservatives who are hated or ignored is getting longer: Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Herman Cain, Candace Owens and many more.

Yet, it’s still extremely difficult for good people of all colors to go that next step and acknowledge that Democrats and their strategists don’t want minorities to be successful or self-sufficient. They like it better when blacks are poor, angry and lawless.

See? it’s tough to read the preceding paragraph because it sounds so mean.  Why?  We’ve gotten to the point where it’s meaner to acknowledge the truth than the ugly truth itself.

Sadly, Democrat policies have succeeded very well in accomplishing their aims. Inner cities are filled with poverty, anger and crime and yes, they are all run by Democrats. Nevertheless,  It’s still easier to believe that they’re not deliberate–just incompetent.

It’s a tough pill for people of good will to swallow. We don’t want to believe that so many of our fellow citizens could be so heartless on purpose.

That doesn’t mean that all Democrats are deliberate. Those who continue to stick with the Party despite these revelations and results, often do so because they want to believe that it is still the Democrat party that is compassionate, inclusive and the party of the underdog. By extension, that makes them those things too.

Like the  “wrap-up smear” the false narrative of “systemic racism” continues to create more rage, misery and yes, actual racism. Then, they inevitably lecture us about fairness, decency, civility and of course, racism.

Methinks the Party doth protest too much

Wednesday News Roundup: Dems Now Hate Susan B. Anthony and Portland Riots Expand Again

Highlights from the communist Democrat National Covention, Night 2:

  • The featured speaker to the party of the fake #MeToo movement was a man who has been credibly accused as a rapist and pedophile since 1999.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke for 60 seconds, in the process seconding the nomination of … wait for it … Bernie Sanders as the party’s nominee. Hey, a communist party ought to have a real Commie as its nominee, right?
  • Islamic Jihadist radical Linda Sarsour was given a speaking slot to spew her anti-American, anti-Semitic filth, because of course she was.
  • Sally Yates, a prime participant in the coup d’etat effort to remove President Trump in 2017, spoke to beg the nation to elect Joe Biden so she won’t have to to go prison.
  • Deceased John McCain received the most fitting tribute of his entire political career, having a video of his career narrated by his second wife played at the convention of the one political party to which he had true loyalty.
  • Chuck Schumer spoke, causing any thinking person to feel the need to take a shower after he was done.
  • John Kerry gave a short speech, reminding everyone why we almost lost the country entirely in the 2004 election.
  • And for some reason, Stacey Abrams, the epic loooooser in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial contest who also lost out on her tireless effort to become Joe Biden’s running mate, was allowed by the party leaders to deliver yet another tedious, utterly dishonest speech in prime time.

I’m really glad my wife and I were streaming Season 2 of Yellowstone.

For those of you still dumb enough to think Joe Biden is somehow a “moderate”… – Watch as Marxist New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay gushes about the “radical” nature of Joe Biden’s policy platform:

Transcript: “You know, I think, what’s funny is that Biden’s platform is actually far more liberal than Barack Obama’s was 12 years ago. So, when we looked at that as an editorial board, we were kind of blown away at how much more similar it is to Bernie Sanders’ platform in some ways than Barack Obama in 2008.”

Any questions?

 

Because the Democrat playbook dictates that Democrats cannot support any action taken by the duly-elected President of the United States of America, this bit of mindless hilarity happened on Tuesday. – You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks: President Trump issued a full pardon for Susan B. Anthony, hero of the women’s suffrage movement in the late 19th century, on Tuesday, completing an action that 27 of his predecessors had refused to take.

Naturally, the communist Democrats found a way to oppose even that.

New York communist Democrat Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul got the party’s honors, issuing the following factually-incorrect tweet:

The truth, of course, is exactly the opposite of what this communist Democrat says. From a piece at the Federalist:

While Anthony never paid her fine or spent time in jail, Hochul’s claims that were quickly disputed by Twitter users who cited Anthony’s petition to the White House as the reason why she wanted her criminal record overturned.

“She believed she had committed no crime and that her right to vote was protected by the privileges and immunities clause of the 14th amendment. She also petitioned Congress to rescind the fine. She wanted the government to recognize that she had not committed a crime by voting,” replied one Twitter user.

[End]

The President was in fact acting on a petition requesting a pardon that was filed by Ms. Anthony over a century ago, a petition that 27 previous presidents had ignored.

Not content to stop with this depraved bit of stupdity, the communist Democrat activists at the New York Times published a piece excoriating the President’s action and branding the first female whose face appeared on U.S. currency as a racist. No, really, I swear I do not make this stuff up:

She is also an increasingly divisive figure, adopted by anti-abortion forces and criticized for relegating Black suffragists to the sidelines. On Tuesday, Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion political group, and Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer who represents conservative groups, were in attendance as Mr. Trump made his announcement.

[End]

Thus does a woman who has for many decades been held up and lauded by the “women’s movement” as a hero now make the transition to a racist bigot who must be destroyed more than a century after her death.

Absolutely breathtaking. The utter depravity of these communist truly knows no bounds.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The riots in this formerly beautiful city raged on for an 82nd straight night, with no visible evidence that the Portland Police Department is making any real effort to contain them.

As always, the only reason we know this is thanks to the ongoing efforts of one real journalist, Andy Ngo:

The rioters have now become so emboldened by the lack of effective resistance from law enforcement that they have taken to advertising their next rioting spots a day in advance:

Absent federal intervention, these riots will only continue to grow in scope and scale, because the communist Democrats in charge of the city want them to do so. It really is that simple.

The Democrats are Running out of Time on Their Hidin’ Biden Farce

Even Biden’s potential running mates are starting to lose patience with his inability form ideas into sentences. – Check out Elizabeth Warren actually rolling her eyes as Biden bumbles around to catch a thought that zooms into and out of his noggin:

Which brings us to this little nugget from Dan Bongino:

If you’re surprised by this, you are a new reader at Today’s Campaign Update. Given that their faux “convention” is just barely two weeks away, the Democrats obviously do have a huge decision to make where Biden is concerned. Do they draft Obama to go to his former Vice President and tell him the game is over and he must withdraw for the good of the Party? Or do they just brazenly tough it out with the Hidin’ Biden strategy and keep their “candidate” closeted up in his basement all the way through Election Day?

Many people think that drafting a new nominee and mounting a campaign with him or her would be a fairly simple thing, but it wouldn’t be. For one thing, there’s the money question. Biden has raised several hundred million dollars for his campaign, and that money is not transferable to a different nominee. Thus, a Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama or Andrew Cuomo would have to basically start from scratch against an opponent, President Donald Trump, who has already raised over half a billion dollars for his own campaign.

That’s a huge hill to climb, folks.

Then there’s the question of how you mount a campaign without doing in-person rallies of any real size, and while refusing to debate your opponent. We have to understand that this factor is precisely why the Democrats have so fiercely fought to keep our economy depressed and shut down: They are perfectly willing to keep millions of Americans out of work and to destroy millions of small businesses if it means they have a rationale to deny the President his ability to conduct public rallies.

Will the public buy it when Biden says he refuses to debate the President because he might – gasp! – lie during a debate? Think about how independent voters, for whom these debates actually are staged every four years, would react to that excuse. It’s a giant risk for the Democrats to take.

But it may indeed be a necessary one for the Party to try. Biden has clearly declined rapidly over the past 16 months, and he was already obviously impaired when he entered the race last April. This is a man who cannot hold a simple press conference without holding a list of pre-selected “reporters” to call on, reporters who have been selected by Biden’s handlers because they have promised to avoid tough questions.

Biden struggles to read a short speech from a TelePrompter now, and is unsteady on  his feet. These are the major reasons why the Democrats have gone to such epic lengths to ensure that party conventions had to become virtual events. We should not be surprised if they even come up with some pretense for Biden’s virtual acceptance speech to be pre-recorded rather than a live delivery so that his gaffes can be carefully edited out.

With recent polling showing that Biden’s voter enthusiasm levels have tanked to historic lows not seen since the days of Walter Mondale, the Democrat/Media axis of disinformation is even going to find it increasingly difficult to keep rolling out the fake polls and have anyone believe them. There is increasing chatter at social gatherings and across social media about the dearth of Biden yard signs, bumper stickers and other campaign paraphernalia appearing anywhere in the country.

When people can see with their own eyes that literally no one they know is a Biden supporter, and their Democrat acquaintances laugh whenever his name is brought up, the pretense of fake polls showing him with double-digit leads loses any real impact. In fact, at this point it is safe to say that the media/pollster campaign to depress Trump voter enthusiasm has been an abject, miserable failure.

But here’s the thing about all of this: Biden has made it clear that he’s going to announce his running mate selection this week. Once he crosses that threshold, it becomes even more difficult for the Party to kick him off to the curb.

It’s a real conundrum for the party leaders, and the reality is that actually don’t have an alternative who is all that attractive. Abandoning Biden now, after all of the promises he has made to get the party’s various factions on board with his candidacy, would inevitably cause massive splits in the party’s demented voter base, with the new candidate having barely two months to try to bring them all back into the fold.

The Democrat convention begins on August 17, two weeks from today. Those two weeks are going to be incredibly interesting.

That is all.

Complying with Tyranny on Masks Will Only Bring on More Tyranny

Guest piece by Karen Kataline

The left has sprinted past what we previously thought was a line in the sand between personal freedom and forced state dictates for personal behavior.

The breach of that boundary has led to numerous other fundamental rights crumbling to dust along with our historical monuments.

There is still time to restore those boundaries and our rights but only if we start telling the truth en masse and defying unjust edicts from lawless lawmakers.

Sadly, we can no longer expect that there will be enough lawful lawmakers to protect our liberties. We must protect them ourselves.

Coronavirus is still being used as an excuse to crack down on our freedoms despite false projections that even the CDC dramatically ratcheted down months ago.

Democratic governors and other politicians are refusing to relinquish the “emergency powers” they have awarded to themselves that allowed them to continue lockdowns and restrict businesses.

As if they somehow thought of it independently, they continue to act simultaneously to tighten their demands and micromanage our lives. They have now moved from suggesting to demanding that we all, no matter our health, risk level, or opinion, be forced to wear masks in public.

What a perfect and ever-present reminder that we are not in charge of our lives. They are.

Even weak-willed Republicans like Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas have become lost in this masquerade.

Do you think Democratic politicians are making masks a political issue?

To leftists, it doesn’t matter whether masks work or make sense. It only matters that they have been a wildly successful tool for obedience training in collectivism for Americans. Socialism can’t take hold without it.

Both the secret and the avowed socialists among us are engaged in an all-out battle to punish America for being built on individualism and for flourishing because of a Constitution that was created to protect it.

While Democratic tacticians have their Democratic politicians ramping up threats of fines and jail time for refusing to wear a mask, they’re also pushing the idea that masks are “cool.” There is a whole new cottage industry marketing masks as an opportunity to make a “signature” fashion statement.

There’s nothing quite like superficial individuality to “mask” one’s prostration to serfdom and conformity.

Savvy watchers of the left were suspicious early on when they noticed a familiar leftist tactic being warmed up and served for public consumption. They went to work making it socially acceptable to vilify dissenters and brand them as selfish. They rush to reward it.

How dare anyone question the efficacy of masks or the use of bullying and intimidation to force Americans to comply? How dare anyone care about their own personal freedom and the freedom of their fellow citizens, even those too ignorant or complacent to care? “We’re in the middle of a pandemic!” they self- righteously scold.

Masks create further alienation and suspicion between friends, neighbors and business associates. They muzzle us while helping snitches to easily identify dissenters.

We have seen how deadly the combination of collectivism and social bullying can be. It can often lead to mob rule and violence. At that point, politicians don’t have to worry about enforcing their unconstitutional orders. The mob does it for them.

Masks also blur the lines between criminals and law-abiding citizens. We are indistinguishable from antifa and other groups who now commit heinous crimes in plain sight and with impunity. The backward subliminal message is that masked people are law-abiding and unmasked people are criminals.

After watching the same Democratic politicians refuse to impose their own orders on rioters, looters and vandals, their credibility is lower than the fatality rate of the coronavirus.

In light of such a blatant dereliction of duty to protect their innocent constituents, they still have the chutzpah to claim that it is compassion that compels them to order us to wear masks.

The good news is that a growing number of people believe that these suffocating orders are ridiculous and even dangerous. The bad news is that most still only whisper it in muffled tones behind their cloth masks.

As we have seen, complying with the orders of authoritarians only brings more authoritarianism. Masks will continue to be a major battleground on which we can beat it back.

Previously polite, law-abiding citizens must unmask themselves and let their voices be heard. Unlike their oppressive opposition, they have little interest in vilifying those who choose to wear a mask for their own reasons.

In the 1982 film “Gandhi,” Ben Kingsley portrayed Gandhi as saying, “100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.”

It’s time to stop cooperating.

The Corona Panic Porn Just Never Ends

California Governor Gavin Newsom, a despicable Democrat, tanked a major stock rally today by announcing he was re-closing his state. Newsom attributes his latest irrational, probably illegal action to his state’s rising number of “cases” of COVID-19, a number everyone knows is vastly inflated and fraudulent.

As Newsom takes this action motivated solely by politics, the folks at the Daily Caller thought it was important to remind readers what was taking place in Los Angeles a month ago, because Newsom says this is still ok.:

Oh. Any questions?

Meanwhile, in other COVID-19 news… – Alex Berenson has an important CORONAPANIC UPDATE from Florida:

Oh.

Remember the goal in Florida is to inflate the numbers so high that they justify cancelling the GOP National Convention. So, expect them to go much, much higher in the next 2-3 weeks.

And a fair warning from @EthicalSkeptic about the flood of “new” deaths to come, as states that have withheld that data will now start claiming it is all “covid-related” to keep the panic going:

Despicable.

But none of this fits the narrative, so, carry on.

The Biden (Sanders/AOC) Climate Plan: Socialism Wrapped in a Green Bow

The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator.

Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft, soothing language of the radical climate alarmist movement, but its vision is one of pure Soviet-style command-and-control forcing of “change” that is not even technologically feasible, much less financially affordable.

All you really need to know about this plan is who conceived it:

On climate change, the two candidates and their supporters had some serious divides to bridge. Over the course of nine months of primary debates, Biden touted his plan to build 500,000 electric vehicle chargers and put his faith in American exceptionalism while Sanders bashed fossil fuel executives and promoted the Green New Deal. To try to find a middle ground, Sanders appointed Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash, and Catherine Flowers, the founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice, to the joint climate task force. Biden selected former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy, and former Biden policy advisor Kerry Duggan, along with two members of Congress.

[End]

Oh. Guess who did most of the writing? That would be Ms. Prakash, a committed radical whose “Sunrise Movement” is just another front group for George Soros:

Prakash wrote about her experience on the task force on Twitter on Wednesday, explaining that she had two goals: to push Biden to increase his ambition on climate change in terms of timelines and benchmarks, and to place environmental and climate justice at the heart of all of Biden’s climate policies.

On Prakash’s first goal, there was certainly some success. Previously, Biden’s climate policies centered around achieving 100 percent clean electricity by 2050. The task force shaved 15 years off that goal. It also came up with a slew of closer, more specific benchmarks: Within five years, make all school buses electric and help spur retrofits of 4 million buildings by unlocking private sector funding and setting efficiency standards, and by 2030, zero out the carbon footprint of all new buildings.

As for Prakash’s second goal, she applauded Biden’s commitment to putting environmental justice at the heart of his climate policy agenda by directing federal funds to disadvantaged communities, ending pollution & toxic waste sites, and creating mitigation strategies and rebuilding from disaster in just and equitable ways.”

“We are leaving these discussions with policies that, if implemented, will make Joe Biden’s climate agenda far more powerful, equitable, and urgent than where his plans were just weeks ago,” she tweeted.

So, what do you think the term “unlocking private sector funding” means? It means massive new taxes on businesses and the middle class, and those taxes on businesses will all be passed along to consumers, harming the poorest among us the most. Because that’s what leftism in any form always does. What does “directing federal funds” mean? It means redistributing the wealth away from the GOP voter base to the Democrat voter base, because again, that’s what leftism in any form always means.

They’re going to “make all school buses electric” by 2025: Who’s going to foot that bill, to the extent it will be footed with anything other than trillions in new debt? Look in the mirror.

And by the way, the plan itself refers to those electric buses as “zero carbon” vehicles. They aren’t. Not even close.

The average EV is overwhelmingly made of plastics, because that is the lightest-weight material Tesla and other manufacturers have available to reduce the weight of the cars in their efforts to maximize their driving range on a single battery charge. Guess where plastics come from? That nasty old oil. The tires on a Tesla are no different than the tires on a Jaguar or a Ford: Largely made from petroleum products.

Many of the battery charging stations you see in your cities are actually powered by generators fueled by diesel or natural gas, a secret the industry doesn’t like to talk about. The rest are powered by the same electricity grid from which you receive power in your home or office.

What do you think generates that electricity? The answer is power plants. In many states, the majority of that electricity is generated by burning coal. In Texas, where I live, most of the power comes from natural gas power plants, although coal provides a significant amount as well.

So, what is “climate” gain will be seen from spending hundreds of billions of dollars on half a million electric buses? Basically, zero. It  could even end up being a net negative given that we haven’t even talked about all the emissions involved in the manufacture of those buses and the parts that go into them. That all requires the generation of power from some source, and those factories are most often powered from the local electric grid or from separate generators fueled by diesel or natural gas. Most of them also now put up small arrays of prominently-placed solar panels for show.

But understand: None of this is really about the environment or the “climate.” It’s about control. More specifically, it’s about socialism, and using the “climate” as a means of justifying its implementation and full takeover of the federal and state governments in America.

The very same principle applies to every other aspect of the AOC plan that was released yesterday. It is just the “Green New Deal” put into more flowery and obfuscating terms. None of it is even possible from a technological standpoint, and it is certainly not affordable.

But to these central planners, that’s fine, because those aren’t the real goals and objectives at play here.

That is all.
