This Gorrel cartoon gets it right, about the Dems in 2020 and about the timing of socialism. The more “successful” commie-lite programs (e.g. Sweden) were implemented during times of existing economic success, tomes when there was money to fritter. America doesn’t have that. Our current condition is of a restorative mode and, sadly, most of it is simply over-papering with fake money.
Black egg on his face. Maybe it wasn’t him in the picture. THAT picture that was on his page. Anyway, however it works out, please don’t confuse this picture with the other blackface thing he did…
What a hot mess. At a press conference today Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam walks-back yesterday’s apology and today claims the 1984 pictures in his medical school yearbook (blackface and/or KKK outfit) are not him. However, Northam bases his belief he was not in the yearbook photo on his recollection that he had separately darkened […]
They are amazing, literally never taking “no” for an answer (and this is not about Bill…). The following comes in the wake of the liberal loss on Justice Kavanaugh and their foreknowledge of the blue toilet swirl next month. Loss or no loss, they can really fire up the base.
They Make the Call:
Eric Holder, who sold discount machine guns to drug dealers and terrorists until the market collapsed from saturation (then gave them away until no one wanted any more), told it like it really is:
“Michelle always says — Michelle Obama, I love her, you know, she and my wife like really tight, which always scares me and Barack, but Michelle always says, you know, when they go low, we go high,” Holder went on. “No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”
His call for “kicking” Republicans drew a quick applause from the crowd.
And Hillary Clinton, famous for the
Vince Foster mur 2016 election loss, boldly confirmed the three laws of SJWs:
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”
Double down, check.
PROJECTION. Double check.
If only law four were ” go to GITMO” …
Okay, they set the tone, gave the marching orders, and….
Police and FBI agents searched a Hudson Valley, New York, home Wednesday and arrested the 56-year-old man living there after learning about his alleged plan to build a bomb and blow himself up in Washington, D.C. on Election Day, two law enforcement officials told News 4 New York.
Court documents say Paul Rosenfeld wanted to draw attention to his belief in an ancient election system called “sortition,” a method of choosing political officials at random.
Officials tell News 4 Rosenfeld had no criminal history but had told a reporter in Pennsylvania he planned to blow himself up on the Washington Mall around Election Day because he was angry about the country’s direction.
FBI agents pulled over Rosenfeld while he was driving on Tuesday, and he confessed to the plot, telling them he ordered black powder over the Internet and built a bomb in his basement.
Authorities searching his home found eight pounds of black powder explosive meant to be used in a bomb that would ultimately weigh 200 pounds.
He had no plans to hurt anyone else, officials said. He is believed to be a lone actor not affiliated with any international terror group or ideology.
Dear FBI: Please check those above quotes by known international terrorists and reconsider this “lone wolf” assessment.
BTW: the ancient and viable sortition angle is BS, mere cover floated by the enemies of the American people at press time.
More to come…
Hilarious news from the Dead City today: efforts to impeach President Trump failed miserably. Against the wishes of their own leadership a gang of Dems led by Al Green of Texas alleged Trump committed the high crimes and misdemeanors of:
“[A]ssociation with “White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hate,” as well as “Inciting Hatred and Hostility…”
(I think those are spelled out in Article 13, Sec. 69).
Said Green, “Friends, whether we like it or not, we now have a bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility.”
Despite no mention whatsoever of Russia, 58 Dems voted to move the process forward. The rest of the House, surely acting on orders from Moscow, killed the measure.
Now, now, now … to her credit, Nancy Pelosi “has insisted that any impeachment effort should be put on hold until there is evidence of an impeachable offense.” Imagine that.
Green, not one to be dissuaded, said he would take the issue to the NFL for a communal knee this Sunday. He says that way all 23 fans collectively in attendance may decide the matter.
A few blocks away and at almost the same time, while not seeming at all concerned about his imminent removal from office, the Hater in Chief, literal Hitler, and known inciter of hostility, Donald John Trump, aka THE Neo-NAZI, was busy recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital. (Yes. It does seem ironic when you think about it.) He also vowed to move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
In reaction to Trump’s announcement Hamas vowed a “day of rage.” Perhaps Green should join them?
Donald Trump (R), Paul Ryan (R), Charles Schumer (D), Nancy Pelosi (D), et al (R & D) are working hard on a plan to scrap the debt ceiling debacles forever:
President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) have agreed to pursue a deal that would permanently remove the requirement that Congress repeatedly raise the debt ceiling, three people familiar with the decision said.
Trump and Schumer discussed the idea Wednesday during an Oval Office meeting. The two, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.), agreed to work together over the next several months to try to finalize a plan, which would need to be approved by Congress.
One of the people familiar described it as a “gentlemen’s agreement.”
With gentlemen like this who needs scoundrels?
Honestly, they might as well do away with the theater. D.C. is going to spend itself into oblivion regardless of what any law says. Might as well speed things up a bit.
“Conservatives” will surely spin this as a quid pro quo from Trump – maybe for his wall or tax relief or something. Whatever it is, watch it fail.
Let’s see how fast they can turn $20 Trillion (on books) into $40T, or $100T! I call $40T by 2025, outside maximum.
Long live the debt! Long live the funny money!
Y’all keep voting. Really making a difference!

Where to start? Where to start????
Mike Pompeo, new head of the
secret police CIA came out with guns blazing today, hot after Wikileaks and their agency revelations.
Pompeo has in the past called for Snowden to receive the death penalty.
He said people at the CIA found praise for WikiLeaks “both perplexing and deeply troubling.”
“As long as they make a splash, they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security,” Pompeo said. “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors, like Russia.”
During the question and answer portion of the event, Pompeo said because Assange was not a US citizen and lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, he “has no First Amendment freedoms.”
Odd. Odd. Odd. Odd. Very perplexing. Very odd, because, as the article explains, Pompeo was praising Wiki just last fall. Things change. No freedom of speech outside the U.S. Constitution? Shows a lack of understanding of the Constitution.
Elsewhere Pompeo (maybe on TeeVee) also claimed that U.S. citizens have nothing to fear from all the spying because the spy agencies do not spy on them. Well, they spied on Pompeo’s Boss, Donald J. Trump, and associates – the President and all … but you!, you little people have nothing to worry about….
Trump has pretty much dropped the spying allegations – even as more and more evidence comes forward to irrufutably prove them. Very odd. The media and the Democrats are a little quiet too – not so odd. Just after the Rice revelations surfaced, the Guardian presented evidence of British Intel involvement.
You read about that, here, last month, because I’m faster than the Guardian. Not as fast as Judge Napolitano, however. He blew the whistle first – and Fox fired him for it. I’ve heard no word of an apology from the Legs Network…
I supposed the “America First” White House has been preoccupied lately – what with bombing Syria, bombing Afghanistan, and preparing to bomb North Korea – all vital to Americans and their interests… All… Oops! Some of the bombs went a little off target. Not that anyone really knows what the target is. The important thing is that Raytheon, General Dynamics, and the banksters make money.
Healthcare reform has been slightly delayed. Tax cuts can wait a while. The wall can wait. Hilary’s still walking (stumbling?) free. Yeah… But Raytheon stock is up and the Goldman grip grows stronger by the day! There’s that.
The GOP is doing it’s part for the Big Club.
For their part,the Democrats are … doing something. I’ve got to give them a little blame here.
From the above, one might gather that now would be the time for the opposition party to strike back. If we had opposition, that might happen. We don’t.
Considerably better looking than the previous alternative … and no email issues. NBC News.
The Dems have in their party a brilliant young female politician, one Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D, HI). Female and minority – all the things they say they like. She’s a veteran. She knows what she’s talking about. She makes sense. She is 100% against foreign meddling and needless wars. And she’s pretty easy on the eyes too. Perfect, right? Sane, young, patriotic new blood, hottie in 2020?? No…
Naturally, the Donkey Party wants her kicked out of office, maybe locked away in an asylum or something.
As Carlin said, “this is the best we can do”.
Speculation abounds that the Donald might be trying to throw the election to Hillary. Rumor is he doesn’t really want the office and he and the Clintons have been friends for some time.
I still think he’s in. It makes little difference either way. I’ve long said American politics has degenerated into a WWE (WWF for us seniors) carnival act. The Democrats and Republicans play “heels” and “faces” and then trade off as the scripted plot develops. Regardless of which side they’re on, the TV wrestlers all work for Vince McMahon and the overall goal is to keep fans watching and paying. It’s the same with the “two-party” system. The politicians all work for the banks and the goal is to get you watching (but not too close) and paying.
I’ve said and written that for years. Now, people on the Republican side are actually starting to mimic the Godfather of WWF fame.
Life imitates art. Politics imitates professional wrestling. ‘Merica.
Amid the uproar about Donald Trump and the family of a dead Muslim (U.S.) soldier, I caught a flippant mention of the Constitution.
Khizr Khan, angry with Trump, stated and asked: “Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with our future. Let me ask you: Have you even read the US constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy. In this document, look for the words liberty and equal protection of law.”
He held up a pocket-copy of the old parchment as an exhibit. The donkey crowd cheered wildly. This, at a convention for people who regularly brag about flouting the Constitution and make fun of those who attempt to hold the government accountable under it. (“Are you serious!?”).
Khan’s may have been the only mentions of “Constitution” and “liberty” during the whole days-long affair. I wonder if his speech was preceded by a trigger warning?
Trump may or may not have read the Constitution. He may or may not know or care why it was adopted or what it means (used to mean…). The rest of the Democrats and Republicans might know too but they obviously don’t care. It’s a moot point anyway at this late hour. Still, for a moot point it was pretty funny.
Tax increases and Democrats go together like sunrise and the east. It’s natural, predictable. It’s also disturbing. Like the meme says: “Taxation is theft.” Well, armed robbery really. The point is – they want your money and they always have a plan to get it.
Americans for Tax Reform put together a list of some of Hillary’s proposed tax increases. I say “some of” because they’re will surely be more if she is elected. Here’s the majority of it:
Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, an “Exit Tax” and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign’s own figures.
Hillary has endorsed several tax increases on middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder that when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a “rock-solid” promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a “goal.” In other words, she’s going to raise taxes on middle income Americans.
Hillary’s formally proposed $1 trillion net tax increase consists of the following:
Income Tax Increase – $350 Billion: Clinton has proposed a $350 billion income tax hike in the form of a 28 percent cap on itemized deductions.
Business Tax Increase — $275 Billion: Clinton has called for a tax hike of at least $275 billion through undefined business tax reform, as described in a Clinton campaign document.
“Fairness” Tax Increase — $400 Billion: According to her published plan, Clinton has called for a tax increase of “between $400 and $500 billion” by “restoring basic fairness to our tax code.” These proposals include a “fair share surcharge,” the taxing of carried interest capital gains as ordinary income, and a hike in the Death Tax.
But there are even more Clinton tax hike proposals not included in the tally above. Her campaign has failed to release specific details for many of her proposals. The true Clinton net tax hike figure is likely much higher than $1 trillion.
Capital Gains Tax Increase — Clinton has proposed an increase in the capital gains tax to counter the “tyranny of today’s earnings report.” Her plan calls for a byzantine capital gains tax regime with six rates. Her campaign has not put a dollar amount on this tax increase.
Tax on Stock Trading — Clinton has proposed a new tax on stock trading. Costs associated with this new tax will be borne by millions of American families that hold 401(k)s, IRAs and other savings accounts. The tax increase would only further burden markets by discouraging trading and investment. Again, no dollar figure for this tax hike has been released by the Clinton campaign.
“Exit Tax” – Rather than reduce the extremely high, uncompetitive corporate tax rate, Clinton has proposed a series of measures aimed at inversions including an “exit tax” on income earned overseas. The term “exit tax” is used by the campaign itself. Her campaign document describing this proposal says it will raise $80 billion in tax revenue, but claims some of the $80 billion will be plowed into tax relief. How much? The campaign doesn’t say.
This is, all of it, insane. The federal government already spends about $4Trillion per year – mostly on welfare and warfare (neither Constitutional). What could they possibly want or need with another $Trillion? And, the increases, even if they all became law, wouldn’t raise that much anyway. Taxes affect behavior. Increased taxation of income, for example, will cause people and businesses to curtail their incomes so as to avoid paying the tax. Thus, there is less money to steal … tax as a result.
Businesses (the big ones) don’t really pay their income taxes. They pass them on to you and you pay them through higher prices and fees. If $275 Billion is raised, it will be on your backs.
I love the “Fairness tax” idea. To them simplification always means paying more. Period. It reminds me of an old joke from the 90s – Bill Clinton’s simplified, revised tax form. It was just two lines in its entirety: 1) “How much did you make?” and 2) “Send it in.” So simple. So fair.
These are merely proposals. Most likely would not make it through Congress. Still, if the left has shown anything during the past century or so, it is that they get what they want – or, at least some of it. Right now, as usual, they want yours. Fair enough?
