Thursday News Roundup: Biden Wants Fauci to Ruin Baseball as AOC Whines About his Fake Infrastructure Plan

No amount of spending is ever enough for the communist Democrats. – The standard excuse the communist Democrats have deployed for the last half century to explain the abject failure of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society socialist welfare state to reduce poverty or make any aspect of life better for the nation’s poor is that we just didn’t spend enough money on it. No matter how many trillions of dollars America spent on these socialist/communist schemes, it was never enough. If only we’d just spend more.

Now here comes China Joe Biden, having already spent $2 trillion on a new set of wasteful federal boondoggles in his fake “COVID relief” bill and proposing to spend another $3 trillion on his fake “Infrastructure bill”. Not surprisingly, the current set of outright communist Democrats is now using the same excuse to explain in advance how all of this spending will also miserably fail to make anyone’s life even a little bit better.

Cue Socialist Barbie, i.e., Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, to give us the details:

From the story at RedState.com:

Democrats are like children: give them an inch and they’ll do their best to take a mile. Tack on “Socialist” after “Democrat” and lying spoiled children people like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will do their best to not only take a mile; they’ll also attempt to guilt you into giving them at least two more miles.

You know, so they can “compassionately” “invest” (increase the national debt, federal income taxes, and whatever else it takes to spend more confiscated or borrowed money) in government-dependent programs for the “underserved” among us.

Incidentally, only 22 percent or roughly $422 billion of the $1.9 trillion COVID “stimulus” bill was earmarked for COVID relief checks to individuals.

So more than $4 trillion later and counting, AOC is not a happy socialist camper about Biden’s (miserly, by her “standards”) infrastructure “investment” in America, which apparently doesn’t include enough taxpayer money earmarked for ballooning the federal government even bigger and making even more Americans dependent on it. 

Clearly, “this is not nearly enough,” tweeted the noted math wizard and acclaimed expert on federal government spending. It “needs to be way bigger,” she whined.

“This is not nearly enough. The important context here is that it’s $2.25T spread out over 10 years. For context, the COVID package was $1.9T for this year *alone,* with some provisions lasting 2 years. Needs to be way bigger.”

[End]

Of course it’s not enough. No amount of other people’s money is ever enough to fill the voracious appetite of these communist Democrats. Biden could propose an $8 trillion plan, and the communist talking points would still be the same. It’s the most predictable thing in the world.

AOC never disappoints.

Nothing triggers the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob like a Republican governor showing off his guns… – …or when he indicates he might not be getting his COVID vaccination at an event that would be televised. That’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did on Wednesday at a press conference:

From the story at the Daily Caller:

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that he is planning to get vaccinated after becoming eligible Monday, but does not know if it will be on camera.

“I became eligible on Monday. I haven’t had it yet, but I’m planning on doing it this week,” the 42-year old governor said following the state’s decision to lower the age threshold to 40, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

“I’m not sure we’re gonna do it on camera. If you guys want a gun show, maybe we could do it, but probably better off not,” DeSantis said jokingly, flexing his bicep. “We’re looking forward to do it.”

[End]

Naturally, liberal morons all over Twitter squealed about the Governor’s use of the term “gun show.” Because of course they did.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

China Joe wants Anthony Fauci to ruin the baseball season, too. – I kid you not, that’s the essence of what China Joe Biden said when he was asked about baseball season opening up today, and the plan by the Texas Rangers to allow their home stadium to be opened up to full capacity of 40,000 fans, who would still be idiotically required to wear their useless masks.

From the story at the Dallas Morning News:

As part of an interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele, President Joe Biden spoke about major league baseball teams opening up their stadiums to fans to begin the 2021 season.

Biden re-iterated the importance of wearing masks and continuing to follow health-and-safety protocols, and called into question the Texas Rangers’ decision to open Globe Life Field at full capacity on Opening Day.

“Well, that’s a decision they made. I think it’s a mistake,” Biden said. “They should listen to Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, the scientists and the experts. But I think it’s not responsible.”

[End]

Indeed, China Joe doesn’t approve of anything Texas is doing related to COVID these days, having referred to the decision by Governor Greg Abbott to lift the state’s idiotic mask requirement 22 days ago as “neanderthal thinking.”

But here’s the thing: The number of Texas deaths and cases has declined every single day since that decision was made, while blue states who have maintained their draconian restrictions – New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, etc. – have experienced a actual increase. But of course, Biden’s a Democrat who wants to perpetuate this COVID crisis for as long as he possibly can, so that’s really the issue here, isn’t it?

And if the Rangers were to listen to Fauci as the Sock Puppet-in-Chief advises, they’d have to change their plans every day as Fauci contradicts what he said yesterday. Fauci is a menace to our society, a rank propagandist who is in no way, shape or form a “scientist,” and it is long past time we all quit listening to anyone who claims otherwise.

Thanks to the Texas Rangers organization for having the guts to lead the way forward.

Let’s play ball!

That is all.

The Media Brainwashing About the Biden Fake Infrastructure Plan has Begun

The corrupt, Soviet-style, state-run media is all in on the $3 trillion Biden infrastructure plan. – The great Mollie Hemingway captured the essence of the media’s slavish, lapdog reaction to the Sock Puppet-in-Chief’s announcement yesterday in this tweet:

Everything about that New York Times headline is an outright lie, a Biden administration narrative parroted by leftist stooges who spend their days posing as journalists. Enlarge that chart on the left of the page and what you see is not a focus on “jobs, roads and growth,” but on payoffs to the Democrat Party’s supporters in the green lobby and its favored constituents who are dependent on government largesse.

Take the chart on “Transportation” as a prime example. Here’s what you see:

Electric Vehicle Incentives – An incredible $174 BILLION for you to subsidize the 1% of the upper class who purchase expensive EVs. Astonishing. This is the second-largest number in the entire plan.

Roads and Bridges – This seemingly positive provision comes in at $115 billion. But understand that, as I explained in yesterday’s News Roundup, most of this money will not go to repairing and expanding the nation’s crumbling road and bridge infrastructure, but instead will go to adding things like bicycle and bus lanes that are designed to make it more difficult for you to access these roads and bridges with your personal cars.

And here’s the thing: The National Association of Manufacturers estimates that we have become so far backlogged in repairing our nation’s road and bridge infrastructure that we really need to spend about 8 times this $115 billion over the next 10 years just to get the job done. Instead, Biden plans to spend a pinprick of that amount. Because, repeat after me, this is not an infrastructure plan.

Public Transit – Hey, more spending on buses and trains that nobody rides! Great idea! $85 billion.

Passenger and freight railways – And another $80 billion on trains and railroads. Actually, if this number focused on vastly expanding freight railways in order to take 18 wheelers off the interstate highways, it would be a true benefit to our society. But you can be certain that most of this money will instead go to even more subsidization of Amtrak, which has been basically bankrupt since the 1970s, and to prop up massively wasteful boondoggles like California’s railway to nowhere, which is already about 10,000% over its initial budget.

Those are the top 4 items under “Transportation,” totaling a whopping $452 billion over 10 years. Maybe 1/10th of that number will go to actually fixing dilapidated infrastructure. Maybe.

Let’s take a look at “Buildings and Utilities,” shall we?

Affordable Housing – An incredible $213 billion goes to a dramatic expansion of a social welfare program that has failed since the Great Depression.

High Speed Broadband – $100 billion. Another dramatic expansion of social welfare.

Electric Grid and Clean Energy – A $100 billion payoff to the fake green lobby.

Public Schools – Another $100 billion. I’m old enough to remember when public education and the building and maintenance of public schools was a power left to the states. Here’s your federal takeover.

It is only after that initial $513 billion of planned payoffs to Democrat constituencies that you get to some actual “infrastructure” spending. Surreal.

Now we have something called “Jobs and Innovation,” whatever that means to this evil administration. Here are some of the provisions included in this catch-all category:

National Science Foundation – $50 billion for what, exactly? Oh, hey, guess what is a big part of the NSF’s budget? If you guessed Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes for Health slush fund, you win the prize. Guess where most of this $50 billion will be going? It isn’t hard.

Semiconductor Industry – A $50 billion payoff to the Big Tech monopolies who helped fix the election last year.

Clean Energy Manufacturing – Another $46 billion Easter Egg for the fake green lobby.

Climate TechnologyAnother $35 billion Easter Egg – they’re everywhere in this plan.

Bottom line: You are going to be utterly brainwashed by our Soviet-style corrupt media establishment over the next month or two to accept this absolute travesty of a plan as the solution to all of our problems with “roads and bridges.” That will be the focus of the joint Democrat/media narrative that will be shoved down your throats.

But the truth is that this plan has pretty close to nothing in it that will improve the quality of our nation’s transportation infrastructure for individual drivers. In fact, there is far more money in this plan that is designed to intentionally make your daily commutes vastly more difficult in order to satisfy the demands of the Global Church of Climate Change.

That’s the truth, and you won’t be getting any truth on this plan from our corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda media establishment.

That is all.
