The Left has upped its game in a big way. Actors and actresses have famously run for office before. They haven’t, however, been hired to be mouthpieces for hidden agendas. This is the future of Leftist of politics. Three or four intellectual influences hire about a hundred role players to win in various Congressional Districts. They get run like franchises and others can audition against them if they ever go stale. Your Democracy has been hacked. Even your member of congress may well be an NPC.
Danton and Marat were visionary. Robespierre was the technocratic functionary that made The Committee For Public Safety work. This meant that when Robespierre no longer felt like messing around with the whole vision thingy, Danton and Marat got issued their complimentary dirt naps. This is how rEvolutions work. The power-mongers kill the brainiacs the same way the smart kid on the island got voted off in Lord of The Flies.
Among a field of like-minded Democrats vying for a chance to unseat Trump in the 2020 election, Sanders is trying to win potential voters on the idea that he was the first to advocate for those progressive ideals. “Those ideas that we talked about four years ago that seemed so very radical at that time, well, today, virtually all of those ideas are supported by a majority of the American people and have overwhelming support from Democrats and independents,” Sanders told hundreds of rallygoers in the ballroom of a Concord hotel in his first return to the Granite State since announcing his second run. “They’re ideas that Democratic candidates all across the board are supporting.”
Bernie is delusional if he thinks he can be anything other than a Thermidorian Reaction against the whack-jobs who have taken over his cool niche. Joe Biden has better chance of derailing the newer Dems by running as the Crazy Old Uncle who tells those kids to turn that darn noise down. Politics can be like any other pop culture field. When you lose your cool, you have nothing left. In a worst-case scenario, Bernie will crash and burn like former INXS Lead Singer Michael Hutchence when he gets told in no uncertain terms that he is no longer officially cool.
See how Democracy lends itself to an orderly and lawful society? Oh, wait….
Nearly every House Democrat on Friday opposed a measure condemning voting in U.S. elections by illegal immigrants, as part of a sweeping election reform bill.
The GOP-backed measure would have added language to the “H.R. 1” election proposal stating that “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”
Anti-termite not anti-Semite. It’s totally different when the Jew BBQ is proposed on behalf of Democratic Socialism. The Donald has decided to kick the tires on DR3. It won’t catch any gefilte fish. Most of the Jews who give large chunks of money to Democrats hate religious Jews who work the settlements over in The Land of King David anyway.
“Open the Pod Bay Door, Hal.”
“I’m sorry Dave. I can’t do that.”
Facebook is not about making you happy. It is about making you into a commodity. The same could be said about Democracy.
Which institutions? Private as well as public? Funding for research or for institutional overhead? How would the policy promote or inhibit the search for truth? Would the policy get to the less obvious ways that colleges and universities suppress dissenting views, such as faculty hiring? Might the new policy actually encourage such repressive measures as “bias response teams” that routinely stigmatize unpopular views? How would the government know when a college is violating its new rules? What would happen to these rules in the hands of a different president?
Cucks always go technocrat to support their liberal bosses. This latest NRO piffle should be slapped aside with unwavering contempt. Trump should sneer when he sends this shrieking violet packing to zhir safe space.
The way to do this properly is to be capricious and nasty. Make it very insulting and personal. Publicly humiliate the Leftist speech police while confiscating their gubbermint cheese. The Reds understand very well why this works. Strike one, teach one-hundred. One thing about Donald Trump; he has a certain flair about him when he’s a-striken’ and a-killin’.
Kudos to these primarily Muslim parents. They have demonstrated the power of #CutTheCord. When 80% of the parents don’t send their children to the indoctrination factory, the narrative isn’t being piped into their heads and the system can’t create brain-dead little NPCs. Homeschooling prolongs the withdrawal period and takes the game up a notch if a large section of the community organizes well enough to avoid almost everything that public schools have on “offer.”
Also, parents can go loudly public on the gross things that schools brainwash kids into anytime they want a new bond issue or a school tax increase. Make these things known right before the referendum and demand that the curricula get scrapped in return for “Yes” votes or more funding.
So The Democratic Party has 6 competing tribes. 538 orders them from Left to Right.
1) Super Progressives
2) The Very Progressives
3) The Progressive New Guard
4) The Progressive Old Guard
5) The Moderates
6) Conservative Democrats
Of the six, two won’t ship you to the gulag. The latter two will just send you a tax bill and charge you a Dhimmitude. Like Cuck Republicans, Joe Manchin Democrats play a cynical game. They are here to protect you from big, bad AOC.
On immigration: “What country would send you their best? It wouldn’t be a very smart policy.”
The three ways to destroy families.
1) Remove the fathers from the home.
2) Radical Feminism.
3) Deconstruction of traditional family roles.
She speaks about these issue from a standpoint of why she thinks Black Amerika is failing, but it isn’t too hard to extend any of this without loss of generality. Blacks were just the first ones the socialists got under the thumb. They would love to do the same to everybody else. If poor, destitute neighborhoods vote 80% Leftist, then what rational Leftists wouldn’t want every last one of you poor and destitute?
Nine meals from anarchy. That’s what the disaster pros in FEMA say is true of most societies. We read that Venezuelans started looting supermarkets on the 4th day of their national power failure. This is beyond just societal disincentivization. This is the fundamental failure of a civilization.
The Cucks have a proposed solution. We’ll put Juan Guaido in charge. Someone may have to. Once the mob rips Maduro into small pieces, someone will have to assume power in Caracas. So what’s next?
If Guaido is smart, he’ll take a lesson from Candace Owens above and do everything in his power to rebuild an organic, family-centered culture in Venezuela. He’s certainly seen enough of how it works there now to know the government cannot replace the family and expect the children to survive or do well. This would explain why Poland and Hungary are doing better than any of the other places in Europe that Socialism on steroids laid to nines during the late unpleasantness known as The COld War.
We used to get that Socialism didn’t work. Even our counter culture got that straight. The one possible positive of the whole Venezuelan collapse might be that some of these guys who don’t even know who Gorbachev was will be made to wake up and smell the asphalt. I doubt it. If you become solipsistic enough, then the only pain you comprehend is that which you personally feel.
To quote the findings of a 2017 IRS survey: “The majority of Americans (88%) say it is not at all acceptable to cheat on taxes; this ethical attitude is not changing over time.”
Getting past the subtle hints that Donald J. Trump needs to be ground up and sold as bulk filler that are requisite to get anything published in The Atlantic, this article still remains risible. First of all, it’s darn near impossible to not cheat on them. If your kid ever mowed a few lawns and brought home a couple of C-Notes, he’d better be sixteen years old and fill out his 1040-EZ. Otherwise, you’re cheating the tax man like a family of scamming gypsies. Secondly, who is going to tell these people if they are cheating?
Finally, there is the fact that anyone who really needs to cheat and has enough at stake on April Fifteenth to purchase some democracy, has a fix put into the current tax laws. Never mistake legal for honorable. Complex laws are usually designed to let certain favored classes skate free. On balance, 88% of Amerikans will swear up and down they are not pedophiles, sadists or racists either. It’s up to you to pick and choose which of these statements you actually believe.
“To restore the balance of power in our democracy, to promote competition, and to ensure that the next generation of technology innovation is as vibrant as the last, it’s time to break up our biggest tech companies,” Warren wrote.
Elizabeth Warren has reverted to a previously successful technique. She is now mau-mauing tech firms for their money. She did that to Wall Street for a while when she claimed that she had provided the intellectual justification for Occupy Wall Street. This lasted until Rand Paul actual got the Audit The Fed Bill up for a vote in The US Senate. Warren hasn’t said yap about occupying anything other than her Senate Seat and some other people’s ethnicity since. I’d laugh if Zuckersperg just kicked her off of Facebook and said nothing else to her.
The 737 is the best-selling airliner in history, and the Max, the newest version of it with more fuel-efficient engines, is a central part of Boeing’s strategy to compete with European rival Airbus. “Safety is our number one priority and we are taking every measure to fully understand all aspects of this accident, working closely with the investigating team and all regulatory authorities involved,” the company said in a statement. Boeing’s stock fell 7 percent to $391.80 in afternoon trading.
We don’t know that this was Boeing’s fault. It’s just eerie that I am not more surprised to see a new aircraft design from a large US firm crash spectacularly. What should we call this trend of degenerative technology? Trabantification?
“In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it,” RAND analyst David Ochmanek said last week, as reported by Breaking Defense.
He notes that in scenario after scenario, American forces suffer heavy losses — especially to expensive, legacy systems — while still being unable to prevent “red” forces (China and Russia) from achieving their strategic objectives.
So !DIVERSITY! is not a force multiplier? Of course we get clobbered. We are relying heavily on high technology that doesn’t work and costs far more than its value. You can’t expect that poor a national military strategy to succeed.
Once, the cannabis industry was poised to become a multibillion-dollar industry in California. Now, it could be heading for what its advocates call an “extinction event.” An estimated 10,000 marijuana growers could lose their licenses in the coming months if California lawmakers fail to pass a bill designed to grant them an extension, according to Sen. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg, who has sponsored Senate Bill 67.
Governments legalize addictive substances for the same reason Stringer Bell wants his corners. Cali is in it for The Benjamins. Nobody that I ever lived in a college dorm with needed a license to grow Oaxacan Ditch Weed. You really just needed a UV lamp and a RA that didn’t take oversight all that seriously. What does the CAborg protect people from? Rolling up a doobage with seeds in the wrapper?
Woodrow Wilson – worst President evah?
