Big City Mayors Move to Out-Fascist Gubernatorial Counterparts [Updated]

The Evening Campaign Update

Two very disturbing videos emerged on Saturday that make one marvel that they could actually have been made in the United States of America. One came from New York City, the other from Los Angeles, the two largest cities in the country.

First there was this from Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. You have to see it, and read the subtitles along with, to believe it:

“…we still know there’s some people who need to get the message. And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there, to educate people and make sure the social distancing is there. So, now it’s easier than ever. When you see a crowd, when you see a line that’s not distanced…you can report it right away so we can get help there to fix the problem…it’s as simple as taking a photo…take the photo and put the location with it and, bang, send a photo like this and we will make sure that enforcement comes right away. Text the photo to 311-692 and action will ensue.”

Holy crap. Just be thankful that Stalin, Hitler and Mao didn’t have today’s technology to use as tools to assist with their surveillance efforts, so that they could send ‘enforcement’ to ‘fix the problem.’

Note that de Blasio doesn’t say ‘law enforcement,’ just ‘enforcement.’ Why? Because there is no ‘law’ being enforced here. The only thing his ‘enforcement’ squads are ‘enforcing’ are his imperial edicts, which may or may not ever be shown in court to have actually been backed up by any law.

This tiny little 8-foot tall goon is so insecure in his authority that he is now resorting to recruiting ordinary citizens to spy on one another and tattle under the myth that doing this will somehow keep them ‘safe.’

What could possibly go wrong?

As if that weren’t disturbing enough, take a look at this image coming out of Los Angeles, as its thug Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti orders a bulldozer to fill the world-famous Venice Skate Park with sand in order to keep kids idle at home:

Note that Garcetti is the same guy who just a few days ago announced that he will not allow any gatherings of large crowds such as concerts and sporting events until 2021. He is taking these draconian actions to tighten down the vise of government on his population even as governors around the country are announcing plans to begin reopening their states in the coming weeks.

Can this agenda be anything other than pure, raw politics?

And to pile insult onto injury, there is this report out of San Diego:

Citations were issued to 22 people found near the beach in Encinitas in violation of San Diego County’s stay-at-home order, authorities announced Saturday morning.

The tickets were issued Friday to people who “were watching the sunset, having picnics near the beach,”  according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

“Everyone is required to stay home, except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care or go to an essential job,” the department tweeted Saturday morning. “Complacency is the enemy. Take social distancing more seriously to stop coronavirus.”

[End]

Complacency is the enemy, comrades.

We know there’s some people who need to get the message, comrades.

Send a photo and we will send ‘enforcement,’ comrades.

We’re all in this together, comrades.

God bless um…er….America?

Update: This from Maryland today – the nation is beginning to reap what we have allowed our leaders to sow.

This from Las Vegas:

This from Austin:

…and San Diego:

…and Annapolis:

…and Wisconsin:

…and Ohio:

How to Deal With Your Bernie Sanders Supporting College Kids This Christmas

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

Here is your “electable” Democrat presidential candidate.  – Three days after President Donald Trump held a rally with more than 20,000 voters on-hand, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Joe Biden, held a rally in a room the size of your average Houston Heights neighborhood master bathroom with a whopping 98 people there to listen to him struggle to name what state he was in. I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

The corrupt fake journalists in America’s corrupt fake news media tell us that Biden is the most “moderate” Democrat, yet he is the same Joe Biden who just last Thursday promised to kill “hundreds of thousands” of blue-collar jobs in the nation’s oil and gas industry so he could follow Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s grand plan to let us all freeze to death in the dark during the winters to come. In his next breath, Biden promised that all of those welders, roustabouts and frac sand specialists could be “retrained” to take one of the high-tech jobs that will surely be available in the glorious solar and windmill industries that AOC promises to create.

This is what “moderation” looks like in today’s Democrat Party. You continue to vote for these people at your – and everyone else’s – own risk. STOP IT.

Speaking of Democrat presidential candidates – I know you weren’t but bear with me – The Commie is here to help you and your family have…ummmm…..’productive’ conversations around the Christmas dinner table. – Yes, friends, you too can ensure that Christmas day for you and your entire family rapidly degenerates into taunts, cursing and fisticuffs by following the Bernie Sanders handy “Family Persuasion Guide”.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Sanders campaign mailed out many thousands of these pamphlets to students on college campuses – where Communism is all the rage these days – all across the country. So, if you have a kid in school sucking up about 80% of your income to pay for his or her young mind to be filled with the joys of Marxism and Alinskyism by leftist college professors who have never worked an honest day in their lives, expect to be harangued on December 25 as the little jackasses munch down on the very expensive feast you have spent the previous 48 hours slaving to provide them.

From the pamphlet:

It’s up to us as students and young people to make the moral appeal to our older relatives to join us in voting for Bernie, because let’s face it: They won’t be around for as long to deal with the consequences of this election, but we will be.

Get it? You old people aren’t going to be around much longer, so the ungrateful oafs who expect to live out their glory years on the inheritance you worked all your lives to provide them plan to lecture you on why Orange Man Bad and why you thus need to vote for the near-Octogenarian who, like your ungrateful kids and their professors, has never worked an honest day in his entire life, either.

Of course, it is undeniably true that we Baby Boomers will indeed die off much more rapidly should The Commie be elected to the presidency – the shortages of doctors and medical facilities that will inevitably come about under a socialist regime will ensure that. Of course, Bernie will get his own medical care as a member of the Ruling Class which also quickly becomes a feature of any socialist society. Your little 19 year-old ingrates are too ignorant to understand that at this point in their lives, especially since the public schools and universities work very hard to never teach them anything real about the desolation and deprivation any form of socialism invariably creates in its wake.

And that reality, of course, helps to explain why The Commie is so damn unpopular with the old folks. See, one advantage of growing older is that, with age comes this thing called perspective. You tend to learn stuff and retain some of it during the course of a human life, and one thing any human with the reasoning ability of the average alley cat learns and retains is that socialism is a lie, a lie that killed over 100 million human beings during the 20th century alone.

It’s also a lie that continues to kill millions in this century as wave after wave of younger people lacking in perspective, joined by old, lifelong hucksters like The Commie, continue to foist it on previous prosperous societies like, oh, say, Venezuela. Nevermind that people have run out of pet cats and dogs to eat now in Venezuela; The Commie, joined by AOC, assure us that socialism is just wonderful if only smart people like them are in charge.

That’s what Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot and Castro and Hugo Chavez all said, too.

So, friends, if your expensive little ingrate decides to start haranguing you and the other sensible members of your family on Christmas day with The Commie’s talking point messages, here’s what you do: Smack them in their stupid heads with the gravy ladle, march them to the front door, inform them there will be no more tuition money because you’re tired of funding this kind of nonsense, and tell them to go find some perspective in the form a job.

It will be the best thing you ever did for them.

That is all.

Yalta and Potsdam: Days That Still Live in Infamy

Today’s Campaign Update, Guest Piece
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: The following comment was submitted to a post on Saturday by Gregg W. Updike, a Navy veteran who served from 1983 to 1987. Gregg was on the USS America CV-66 when Ronald Reagan bombed Libya. This posting is a day late, given that Pearl Harbor Day was yesterday, but Gregg shared many thoughts that Americans should ponder these 78 years later.]

Don’t forget to “Remember Pearl Harbor” 78 years ago today; which resulted in our last formerly declared war a day later.

The results of that attack was paid back in less than four years with the total defeat of Japan and her Axis partners Germany and Italy.

Sadly, we left that war unfinished when we had the opportunity to be a true “arsenal of democracy” and defeat all totalitarian states for the foreseeable future at little additional cost (the Red Army was an exhausted force on the verge of collapse/revolt, and Mao’s China was a nonfactor). We won the war with our blood and treasure and gave away the peace with ink. Arguably more people ultimately lived under the tyranny of communism after the partial victory over dictatorships than before when our first communist president gave away the eastern half of Europe to the thug Stalin at Yalta in early 1945 with Truman basically sealing the deal at Potsdam later that year.

Hindsight is 20-20, and America in 1945 was “war-weary”, but Patton and Churchill, among others, saw the true evil that was on the horizon. Churchill was defeated and Patton was “accidented” as [a precursor to being Arkancided] to clear the way for the “New World Order”.

Since the Cold War started in 1945, 90% of the world’s problems of violence and unrest can be traced directly to Moscow! Examples are:

  • Active support of Mao in China after the Japanese defeat and withdrawal – USSR provided Mao with the captured Japanese Army’s weapons to use against Chang guaranteeing a communist China by 1950.
  • This lead directly to the 1950-1953 and beyond, Korean War. Both Mao’s China and Stalin’s USSR supported the first, and succeeding, Kims in North Korea.
  • USSR fomented world-wide third world violence and chaos by arming millions of insurgents with the famous AK-47 and other weaponry.

Several other USSR supported happenings during the Cold War and beyond:

  • Europe’s Iron Curtain, Cuba, numerous Latin and South America coups, insurrections, overthrows…, virtually the whole region is an economic disaster with not one strong or vibrant democracy!
  • USSR/Russian support to Israel’s Arab enemies, basically since 1947 and Afghanistan, just to name a select few overt actions.
  • And the covert infiltration of America’s education system (once the envy of the world – now ranked 17th), media, commercial/business (Chamber of Commerce), entertainment, political, and other institutions, and support of virtually every radical group active in the bringing down of our republic today with its money laundered through Soros front organizations with the silent support of several US presidents and the collective Deep State.
  • Over 100,000 American military and civilian deaths fighting USSR backed communist aggression since WWII, and the USSR was our “ally” and was saved from total defeat to Germany.

These are some thoughts to ponder when we think about the far ranging effects of that “Day of Infamy” 78 years ago.

PS: The USSR/Russia has the economic might equivalent to California, or Italy, and about half our population, so one must ask, how can they be such a threat to the US and to world peace and prosperity, without the help of globalist organizations like the UN, EU, and our Deep State?

Alan Dershowitz: The Stalinist Democrats are Making up Crimes

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

Those who dare speak the truth invariably become the first casualties of any communist revolution. – Alan Dershowitz, for those who do not know, is a very liberal longtime professor of constitutional law at Harvard University law school. For years following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and subsequent dissolution of the Soviet Union, conservatives referred to Harvard Law School as the last bastion of communism on the face of the earth. That all ended early in the 21st century, as communism began making its comeback within the ranks of the Democrat Party.

But I digress. Back to Dershowitz.

For many years, Prof. Dershowitz was a frequent contributor for both CNN and Fox News. His appearances have now gone away for the most part as both cable news channels have shied away from airing the views of liberals who actually speak the truth about the never-ending coup mounted by the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation. In fact, Dershowitz says he has has been banned entirely on CNN. Big surprise there.

But Dershowitz still finds his way into the media anyway. On Sunday, he appeared on the John Catsimatidis radio show  to talk about the fake impeachment circus being run by Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan. During the course of this interview, the longtime registered Democrat made some startling accusations about the current leaders of his Party, comparing them to Joseph Stalin and the head of Stalin’s KGB, Lavrentiy Beria.

Here is some of the transcript of that interview [emphasis added is mine]:

They’re very scary. They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican; whether you come from New York or the middle of the country, you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing. The latest twist was people on television, particularly CNN and MSNBC, are saying that if the president or somebody else was to name the whistleblower in the Ukrainian situation, that person would be guilty of a crime. I said in the afternoon yesterday, searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end, I couldn’t find the crime.

It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin, he said, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” Which he really meant, I’ll make up the crime.

And so the Democrats are now making up crimes. First they made up collusion. “Ahh! Collusion. It’s a crime!” I searched the statute books. There’s no crime of collusion except when businessmen get together to collude against the anti-trust laws, but no crime of collusion with a foreign country.

Then after that, they said “obstruction of Congress.”No, no, no, no, no. Obstruction of justice is a crime; obstruction of Congress is part of our system of checks and balances. If you get a subpoena from Congress, and you’re the president or in the executive department, and you think you have an executive privilege, you have an obligation not to respond. That’s not “obstruction of Congress,” that’s checks and balances under our Constitution.

So what we’re seeing, in a desperate effort to try to find crimes against President Trump: they’re just making it up. And that means we are all in danger, because if we can make up a crime — Congressman Cohen of Tennessee said that me and others who appear on Fox essentially were co-conspirators; we’re in on it. He’s now threatening people who are commentators, a liberal Democrat like me, who’s a commentator, that we’re in on it, that we’re co-conspirators. It is such a dangerous development to civil liberties.

The ACLU should be up in arms, but they’re silent.

[End]

Well, of course the ACLU is silent. The ACLU is just another Marxist organization dedicated to undermining the rule of law in the United States, a reality that Dershowitz can’t seem to bring himself to accept. The ACLU only weighs in to promote “freedoms” that serve to undermine the foundations of American liberty and freedom.

So, you won’t see this world-renowned law professor on CNN again, because CNN shares the same goals held by the ACLU. And you won’t see him on Fox News much, if at all, anymore, because those idiots are too busy promoting the rants of the pea-brained hack, Andrew Napolitano.

This is how things work in any communist society: The first thing you do is silence authority figures and experts who refuse to toe the party line. Once that has been accomplished, the media outlets all know that the next step is to silence any journalists who facilitate the airing of those contrarian views.

Management at CNN has spent the last four years systematically ridding its airwaves of all liberal authority figures who dare to speak any truth about the Democrat Party, replacing them all with more cookie-cutter talking points monkeys. The current management at Fox News is now going about doing the same, getting rid of Dershowitz and other liberal truth-tellers and replacing them with talking points monkeys like the nitwit Marie Harf and the corrupt Donna Brazile.

We should fully expect the great Mollie Hemingway to become the next casualty of the Fox purge. Hemingway has been a frequent contributor on Fox for years now, but as we noted yesterday at the Campaign Update, she broke Fox’s idiotic wall of omerta against speaking the name of fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella on-air on Sunday. The cable channel’s leftist management will now come under pressure from their peers to either punish Hemingway or face not being invited to all the best cocktail and dinner parties on the Upper East Side for the foreseeable future.

And you know how the rich, white lefties are about their cocktail and dinner parties: Prof. Dershowitz hasn’t been invited to one in years.

That is all.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Marxism’s New Stalking Horse in America

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

That moment when all the liberal, rich New York Times subscribers on the Upper East Side sat up and said “hey, wait, that’s us!” – Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who is fast replacing Bernie Sanders as Marxism’s favorite stalking horse in the United States, sat down for an interview on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper on Sunday, and hilarity predictably ensued.

First, our intrepid dancing heroine was, as always, completely unable to explain how she would pay for the $40 Trillion-plus price tag for her “Green New Deal” set of proposals, because of course she couldn’t – she’s a Marxist after all, and an incredibly ignorant and ill-informed one to boot.  When asked for an explanation by Cooper, she offered only a dodge:

 “No one asks how we’re gonna pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut.”

“We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care and education,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force. For all of these– ambitious policies.”

Oh. But she did offer a bit of a clue – and a warning for all of you wealthy liberals who think she’s just a cute, good-hearted gal from Queens or the Bronx or whichever burrough of New York City raised her to think the crazy things she does – later in the interview, when she said this:

“You know if you look at our tax rates back in the 60s and you have a progressive tax rate system, the tax rate from zero to $75,000 may be 10%, 15% etc. But once you get to the tippy-tops on your $10 million, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder you should be contributing more.”

So, for those “tippy-toppers” living in those muti-million dollar condos with wonderful views of Central Park in Manhattan who are already forking over more than 12% of your income in New York’s lovely state and local income taxes, that means that your new hero wants you to fork over more than 82% of your income each year to the various government entities that rule your lives.

Here’s reality: The Democrat Party has become the party of the rich in America during the first 18 years of the 21st century, as more and more rich people of European heritage assuage their “white guilt” by voting for people who specialize in reciting talking points designed to make them feel increasingly guilty.  These are the people who elected AOC, and if they keep re-electing her long enough she is eventually going to come and take it all away from them, because – and read this closely because it’s important – THAT IS WHAT MARXISTS DO.

It is what Marxists have always done, from Lenin to Stalin to Mao to Castro to that thug strongman who is starving his people to death today down in Venezuela.  THIS IS WHO THEY ARE.

Unlike Bernie Sanders, AOC has the advantage of being young and cute and able to release videos of herself dancing on a rooftop while she was in college.  Heck, she almost seems like a normal human being at times because of all of that.

But the best meme I saw on Twitter this past week was this one:

That’s right:  Stalin was young once, too. He was Russia’s AOC, around the turn of the 20th century.  As you can see from that photo, probably taken around 1900, he was a handsome young man, and no doubt an idealistic one who his friends thought was all hip and cool and stuff.  He could probably even dance, too, although the technology did not then exist to provide us video evidence of it.  That “60 million” number is probably an exaggeration, but there is no question that millions upon millions of human lives were lost because of this one man and his pursuit of his ideology, the basis of which is supposed to be “equality” for everyone.

But everything about socialism/communism/Marxism – whatever one wishes to call it – is a lie.  What it really represents is misery for everyone, as the people starving in Venezuela as you read this understand. The people pushing this “misery for all” philosophy can never explain how they would pay for all of their policies or anything else about them with anything resembling facts or truth because there are no facts or truth that supports them.

Which is of course what led to this final bit of hilarity in our cute heroine’s interview with Cooper.  When asked by Cooper about having been repeatedly called out even by the leftist media and her Democrat colleagues for repeated lies, she responded with one of her cute giggles and said:

“Oh my goodness,” an incredulous Ocasio-Cortez said.

“If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said. “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

Thus, the promotion of equalized misery for everyone becomes the “morally right” thing to do. How very Marxist of her.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is not a monster yet, because she has no power.  We enjoy making fun of her today because she makes it so darn easy to do.  No doubt, lots of people made fun of Stalin when he was 29, too, and nobody thought Nancy Pelosi was anything particularly special when she was 29, either.

Cortez was elected almost by accident, beating long-time incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democrat primary with just 16,898 votes in the heavily-Democrat congressional district. If the people in her district keep sending her back to congress long enough, she could eventually accumulate power and become able to hold the nation hostage to her insane policies just as Pelosi is doing today in her quest for open borders.

So laugh at AOC today, but know that she won’t be a laughing matter if she’s still on the national stage 20 years from now. Every Marxist monster in history was young once.

That is all.
