Sweet Frosting on a Poison Cake

Published

on

Do you play chess? If so, then you know that when your opponent moves harmless pawns into positions that block your defenses, soon you will lose to a devastating blow that you didn’t see coming.
Democrats know this and they are counting on your inaction. They will use words that seem caring and harmless while they take actions that will soon leave you defenseless.

They say that adding Supreme Court Justices will update an obsolete system and make it more “fair.” They tell you that the District of Columbia and the territory of Puerto Rico deserve to be represented in Congress. (By the way, they already are.) They tell you that our nation was founded by “slave owners” and “white supremacists.” Note that slavery of whites and blacks was common all over the world in those days. None were pure in this regard. They accuse our country of being systemically flawed and predisposed to discrimination and oppression. 

America is the best place on Earth for a person of color today. No country has ever been as accommodating, accepting and empowering of multiple races, genders, lifestyles and abilities as America is today. Nowhere is there a better place to be alive today if you have a unique difference that might limit you. 

In order to make you agreeable to the idea of uninhibited immigration they focus on compassion for the problems of the invaders, not outrage over the violation of our borders, nor the burdens placed on our system. Why would they want unrestricted immigration? Because more dependents equals more demand for government solutions, ergo, more government control over daily life in America. Socialism and Communism require a permanent underclass of needy people. When the populace becomes self-sufficient they don’t need government so much. That is also why small businesses are shut down so thoroughly. If you have your own business then you become more independent and that won’t do for government to control you. 

Why Shut People Down?

Why shut down the entire economy and much of the world over a disease (Covid 19) that is not as threatening as many others? Because fear is the goal! We’ve been terrified by AIDS, Ebola, SARS, MERS, and in the past Tuberculosis, Polio and others. Rightly, we should be concerned. But terrified and hiding in our homes? No. The benefit to the Left of a shutdown and panic is evident. The more afraid we are, the more compliant we are. The more compliant we are, the more controllable we become. They can implement new laws and restrictions while we are afraid and then, when the threat is lessened, they only loosen a few of the restrictions.

Think about how air travel has become like entering a prison system with permanent pat downs and approvals needed. This is the same principle used in nature by a boa constrictor. It wraps itself around its prey and then tightens the grip. When the prey takes a breath the snake increases the grip, this reduces the prey’s ability to breathe bit by bit until it suffocates. It’s not the bone crushing but the suffocation that causes the death. 

Raise Taxes!

Why would increased taxes on corporations and employers be such a bad idea? Because the people who run businesses are the only source of non-government jobs. When companies have to pay more, they have to charge more for their products and they give fewer raises to their employees. When the government runs low on money due to taxing businesses into submission, they print more money without reserves to back the currency. In other words, they create “play money”, paper that has little or no value. Once they do this repeatedly then inflation sets in and all prices increase, for all people at all income levels.

What effect did the shut down of the Keystone Pipeline have on the average citizen? It raised their gasoline prices overnight. That is inflation and it didn’t just make your gas cost more. It made everyone’s gas cost more. When the trucks that deliver your groceries, clothing, supplies, etc. have to pay more for gas, they charge more for their products. That is a tax increase that you didn’t agree to nor get to vote on. 

What about “green technology”?

Aren’t electric cars and other such innovations going to lessen our need for fossil fuels and eliminate them altogether at some point? No. Fossil fuel, especially natural gas, is abundantly available and not harmful to the environment when used responsibly. Modern cars are amazingly efficient in this respect and America is the least polluting among all major countries on Earth. But the unrecognized fact is that electric cars require an immense amount of fossil fuel in order to be created. Petroleum products make life on Earth healthier and safer than any other single energy source. For proof of this, read Dr. Alex Epstein’s excellent book The Moral Case For Fossil Fuels. Of course we should be responsible and clean and considerate in our choice of and use of energy, but abandoning the best fuel source on Earth because news sources tell us we’re all going to die soon is not the way. PS: for generations now the Left has told us we were in imminent danger of extinction, but somehow it hasn’t materialized. Global Warming was preceded by Global Cooling, world overpopulation, rising sea levels and many other unsolvable threats that would make us want more government agencies. Now they just call it “Climate Change” and they don’t have to worry about whether it is warm or cool. 

More jobs!

What the Democrats are saying is “More Government” jobs. It’s just that the word “government” is silent, at first. A trillion dollars of your money spent on creating more government agencies and contracts cannot be sustained. At some point, coming soon to a cash register or bank account near you, the economy will collapse. That creates a massive opportunity for the Left to step into total control. In that instance there can be an overnight conversion from a Democratic Republic to a Socialist takeover. It’s a “tipping point” that is accelerated by each new mega-spending spree. “If we just do this one then our problem will go away.” Nope! 

Another major tactic of the Left, as personified in today’s Democrat party, is to repeatedly raise fears over problems that cannot be resolved. It is the state of fear itself that they are seeking to cultivate. More fear equals more willingness to become dependent upon government. More dependency equals the need for even more government. More government means more control and less resistance. As Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out in disgust in a recent Senate hearing, “All you guys care about is Power!” Yep, that’s the plan. 

They attack the person not just their position.

The Left knows that if you trust someone then you will cooperate with them. So they attack the source, the person who is promoting whatever the Left opposes. They did an exceptional job of making people hate Trump because they knew that his concepts worked and people would become more self-reliant and less needy. By making him a hated threat they defeated his causes with a “bank shot.” They do their best to dethrone our heroes, especially our Founding Fathers. If they can weaken your respect for our Founders, then they can attack what they created: The Constitution, The Three Branches of Government, The Bill of Rights, etc. and get you to agree to amending these amazing pillars of our society. If they can change the Constitution and the balance of power in government you can be assured that it will tilt toward giving them more control and giving you more government intrusion into your daily life. 

What’s behind the name?

They have become masters at hiding their poisons inside tasty looking packages. Like the hypocritical “Antifa” who claim to be anti-fascist while behaving in a pure fascist manner. Democrats have chosen deceptive names for all their initiatives. “Obamacare” aka “the Affordable Care Act” was doubly false. First, Obama clearly didn’t care whether your costs would go up or that you would lose your healthcare provider and your chosen doctor. He repeatedly promised that both were safe, knowing that neither would be. And it was not “affordable” for people at any level of income! They sold it by emphasizing how many people didn’t have coverage, then it took almost two years for them to coerce enough people into it to make it sustainable. Remember that even their website didn’t work despite tens of millions spent on it? How is that possible when Visa, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, eBay, and others have immense systems that are already proven? Who got the tens of millions? 

Now they veil their poisons with misleading names like “Covid Relief” and “Infrastructure” renewal. They propose completely illogical concepts like non-ID voting, the elimination of law enforcement and compassion for unknown immigrants as excuses for more government spending. Pause and reflect…what is the government spending? Your money…more taxes are always needed. There was never enough taxation to satisfy them, ever. Think about that. How come taxation doesn’t sometimes decrease? Because Democrats are in power. When Republicans are in power taxes often decline. Trump proved the economic wisdom of this by lowering taxes for all and eliminating regulations that had just kept bureaucrats working in government jobs. This freed the economy into an historic boom and the lower taxes paid on all that growth equaled more money than any of the Democrat’s forced taxation ever produced. 

What’s inside this delicious looking cake they are selling us? More Fear! Fear is their goal. With us afraid, all their controls can be put permanently in place. Nothing big at first. Just wrap their constricting coils around us and tell us that it is a hug to keep us safe. Then as we gasp from fear, they increase the grip. Once they have enough control then resistance is futile. Don’t ignore harmless pawns, they could be hiding a ruthless strike. 

To paraphrase Weight Watchers, “Nothing tastes as good as…self-reliance and freedom feels.” Don’t eat that cake!

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
