Excited chants of, “Old white guy! Old white guy!” spread across the land as Democrats celebrate getting Joe Biden for their presidential candidate! (for VP pick you gotta figure he’s going to recreate that old black magic and go with Cory Booker. “Spartacus!”) The celebrity journalists at CNN were doing synchronized cartwheels in their excitement.
To me it seems a little strange that in a country of 330,000,000 people that they would choose 77 year old creeper to represent them. Maybe its just me? The guy just told a voter yesterday that he was “full of shit”. He told a woman a couple of weeks ago she was an “ugly dog faced pony soldier”, whatever the hell that is. As it was the black voter in South Carolina that pulled his fat from the fire, I have to figure Biden will pick Cory Booker to be his running mate.
If not him then “damn near black” Kamala Harris. If not her then “gay is almost as good as black” Pete Buttigieg. If not him then how about “Cherokee is the new black!” Elizabeth Warren. But then a lot of times candidates love to choose someone that wasn’t even near being on the radar, a surprise pick. I think we can safely rule out Tom Steyer, unless he wants to secure the “we like to watch the paint dry” vote.
This country has gotten so strange I don’t begin to recognize it. On YouTube is a clip from the 80’s of Republican Ronald Reagan giving a speech at a birthday/roast for Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neill. From all appearances those 2 had a functioning and convivial relationship. You got the feeling there was a certain understanding between the 2 that they had a job to do for the good of the country.
Not today. Speaker Pelosi rips up the Presidents SOTU address on camera for the whole world to see! Crazed lunatic leftists gun down Republican Representatives at a softball practice. Normally panty waisted liberals in Portland, Oregon turn into a violent street gang named Antifa, and the cops stand back and let them do their mayhem! Libraries across the country bring in unvetted sex offenders to do “Children’s Story Hour”! A 14 year old girl decides she’s a boy and has the male gym teacher supervise the locker room!
This is not the country I grew up in. I don’t know where it went, I don’t know who stole it, but its missing. Somebody put an APB out for America! This country is nearly gone, swallowed up by Mexico. Crazy, absolutely crazy. The one time “greatest nation in the world” swallowed up by a failed narco state. Well, not just them, I think Muslims will be fighting them for the rubble.
Nurse Nancy Bergman from Holland, Michigan spends her 22nd and 23rd birthdays in Vietnam. Considering the wounds she describes, and putting a doctors age then at about 30 – 35, I bet we had a really crackerjack set of doctors that would have retired in the mid-nineties. Really good. They would have seen about everything. Everything.
The other thing that occurred to me for about the gazillionth time, was what a bullshit war. The death and destruction we participated in for absolutely no reason. The lives. All the lives. For nothing. For not a damn thing. The inhuman pain and suffering so idiots in DC could play a real-life game of Global Conquest. Which one of them paid for their stupidity? Which one was held accountable?
As she says at the end of the video, “There is truly evil in this world and I saw a little part of it.”
I wanted to make sure and preserve this clip for posterity. It is from October 2016. A few weeks before the election in which Donald John Trump won. At that time “everyone knew” Hillary was going to win in a landslide. I don’t even know the context in which O’Bama here was babbling about Russia. But for reasons unknown he was chiding Mr. Trump for the very idea that Russia could have any influence in our elections.
I suppose part of it was a CYA operation as he was the one nominally in charge at that moment. Less the a month later on November 9, the day after the election in which Hillary had her head handed to her, the tables turned! Then it was Trump was handed the election by the Kremlin! It was Russia! It was Putin! It was anything but Hillary!
[For real fun, go to YouTube sometime and look up “news coverage of election night 2016”. To watch their faces melt about 9 o’clock when it started to become clear Trump was going to win, is just priceless. To watch all those people over 40 throw a tantrum is a treat you won’t see too many times in one lifetime.]
“A politician will always tip off his true belief by stating the opposite at the beginning of the sentence. For maximum comprehension, do not start listening until the first clause is concluded. Begin instead at the word ‘BUT’ which begins the second, or active, clause. This is the way to tell a liberal from a conservative – before they tell you. Thus: ‘I have always believed in a strong national defense, second to none, but…(a liberal, about to propose a $20 billion defense cut).”
This was an interesting quote in a number of ways. Liberty Tree (who sends out these quotes) doesn’t normally miss when someone dies, and unless there were two ‘Frank Mankiewicz’, this one died 6 years ago in 2014. I added the expiration date. As you can see from the picture above of Frank in front of the McGovern poster, he was a liberal. Yet in the quote he’s being bipartisan when he shows how a liberal politician obfuscates just as often as a conservative. That is a wonderful job of diagraming a sentence, something I never learned. In the bio I read on Frank it mentions he came from a long line of “Hollywood luminaries”. I have to assume he is related to the director Joseph and TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz. Liberal Jews are nothing new to Hollywood.
Oh sure, Buttjudge pulls out, he gets an article. Klobuchar pulls out, she gets an article. Tom Steyer pulls out, what’s he get? Ignored! That guy can’t buy press! He’s running around, “Hey! There’s 2 billionaires in this race!” Mini Mike Bloomberg gets all the attention. Steyer could be walking thru the middle of Times Square at high noon, have a flying saucer swoop down and abduct him with their John Deere Tractor beam, and he still wouldn’t get any press!
I’ve never seen anybody so invisible! It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Mr. Trump was still campaigning and Steyer was running ads about impeaching him. Its been non-stop ever since. I think part of Steyer’s lack of success as a candidate was his juvenile behavior the past 4 years. People just dismissed him as a snarling Chihuahua. It really became evident with Klobuchar and Buttjudge pulling out on the same weekend as Steyer. The sound of silence.
Conservative media’s favorite villain is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Today’s article on FOXNews.com was about a “spat” between her and Republican Senator Ted Cruz. The subject isn’t really important, they carry her every utterance. Not bad for a freshman from New York who will hit her 14th month in office on Wednesday. If she doesn’t run for President in 2024 I will be greatly surprised. You have to figure the Democrats are going to get their head handed to them this fall.
Setting the stage for another Democratic free-for-all in ’24. She’s the one with the juice. Its like Tom Steyer, he’s juice-less. 2 billionaires and only one gets press. When Mike Bloomberg has more charisma than you do, its time to find another hobby. The Bronx Bomber becomes legal October 13, 2024. I think I’ll see if I can put up a string of comments about her from online:
“It was utterly irresponsible to put AOC in Congress.”
“She can claim all the accomplishments she wants to but let’s not forget one of the main reasons of her fame were completely stupid answers she gave during interviews.”
“AOC is literally ignorant.” (how would you be ‘figuratively’ ignorant?)
“Can Jello Shots even spell science? I thought she had a degree in economics.”
“It’s hard to take AOC seriously. Since she is an evolutionist, I wonder what rock she evolved from.”
Once of those smart guys who sat around thinking up smart things to say said something like, “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” This election cycle is bringing out all sorts of interesting ideas. Currently the pundits on TV are “Shocked, shocked!” that Bernie Sanders calls himself a Democratic Socialist. The implication is that, “This is ‘Merica, we don’t cotton to communism!” Well that’s great, but don’t let it obscure what’s going on.
For the life of me I will never understand how people are so blind. One of the topics in last nights Democrat debate was education in Cuba. While they were going over that what was ignored was the deplorable state of education in America. When I first became aware of this in the early 1990s America’s world rank was roughly 28th in math and science. Then it became 35th in math and now sits around 39th! Why are you worried about Cuba?? Your kids don’t go to school there. You don’t pay for their education. Focus! The problem is here.
They sound the alarm (!) on what the tax rate would be under Sanders, meanwhile ignoring what the tax rate IS for hedge fund managers now! (Virtually nothing.) Good God! Many areas of Wall Street and other sectors of the business world get away with metaphorical murder! The conservative media is as bad as the liberal media. They are simply using the threat of Sanders to hide the real abuses going on now.
Boy, the way Glen Miller played Songs that made the Hit Parade Guys like us, we had it made Those were the days And you know where you were then Girls were girls and men were men Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again Didn’t need no welfare states Everybody pulled his weight Gee, our old LaSalle ran great Those were the days.
In my drive to stay off Facebook I discovered the FOX News website. Its an interesting place. There are a TON of liberals there. They hate Trump, they hate conservatives, they hate FOX, yet there they are. It also reaffirms my theory on FOX and their fans: They’re Republicans, not conservatives. They regurgitate the party line, but they’re not real good on independent thought.
Right now the crisis of the day is Bernie Sanders and socialism! The sky will grow dark and the earth will tremble if Sanders were to be elected President. They’re just so blind. What do they think Social Security is? Medicare? Medicaid? Government schools? The Great Society programs? The New Deal programs? We’ve had “socialism” in this country for 100 years!
That’s how Congress gets itself reelected, they dole out your money back to you in the form of various programs to buy your vote. Its the game! Instead they run around acting like America is this bastion of the purest free market capitalism on earth! Its ridiculous. What do they think Obamacare is? Republicans called Obamacare SOCIALIZED medicine. Yet when they had Congress they CHOSE to keep it.
Its those various socialist programs (entitlements) that are bankrupting this nation! The programs the purists say don’t exist!
