The Strategies Of Dementia Politics

Authored by Victor Davis Hanson via National Review,

Stoke chaos, obstruct economic recovery, and hide Biden in the basement till Election Day… Joe Biden is tragically suffering a mental eclipse and sliding away at a geometric rate.

The progressive media have put Biden’s blank stares and word searching off limits. We are not supposed to remember that Trump was hounded by progressive M.D.s, to the point that he took — and aced — the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test, an examination that no one in his right mind would suggest Biden now take, given that the results would be no surprise.

POLITICAL: But “celebrities” should be seen and not heard on politics

Brion McClanahan PO Box 2713 Phenix City, AL 36868-2713

*** begin quote ***

Let’s not forget about Taylor Swift insisting that any monument honoring “racists” needs to be removed. I wonder if she is talking about the Lincoln Memorial? Honest Abe didn’t have very nice things to say about black Americans.

Swift is stupid, but a typical celebrity, so you expect this nonsense from her crowd.

*** end quote ***

I enjoyed her early music before she went “big time” and “adult”. I understand that everyone has to grow up.

But “celebrities” should be seen and not heard on politics.

Just because they are “rich”, doesn’t make their opinion any more important than the poor working stiff at the unemployment office. That fellow will at least have their priorities in order.

The stupid files increase daily. I almost don’t know where to begin.

Perhaps we should start with General David Petraeus. No one would call the philandering former CIA director an idiot. Corrupt, perhaps, but not an idiot.

Except maybe he is. Consider this stupid piece he wrote for The Atlantic on June 9: “Take the Confederate Names Off Our Army Bases.”

Petraeus didn’t know that Ft. Jackson in Columbia, South Carolina was named for Andrew Jackson, not Thomas J. Jackson.

That’s right. An army four star general (with a Ph.D) was not aware of the history of a major army military installation, but we should listen to this guy, right?

Stupid. But maybe we shouldn’t expect much more from a man who handed classified information to his paramour.

His piece is typical virtue signaling nonsense sprinkled with Yankee Self-Righteous Delusional Disorder and topped with a bit of neoconservative Union worship.

POLITICAL: Defining Obama-gate

*** begin quote ***

This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.”

*** end quote ***

So it appears that “Obama-gate” has three parts to it:

  1. There was 39 Obama officials that had Flynn’s conversations in violation of law, regulation, and the American spirit of fair play.
  2. This, in combination with the FBI conspiracy to take Flynn down, indicates that BHO44 is involved.
  3. And, the liberal Democratic leftist “main street media” is covering it up.

POLITICAL: Did NY Democrats just tank Biden’s nomination?

From the Catholic perspective, Cuomo represents another pro-choice Catholic politician who has tangled with bishops, not unlike Biden. If New York’s governor ends up with the nomination, it would put a spotlight back on the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who has faced calls in the past to formally sanction Cuomo for his aggressively pro-abortion action in the governor’s mansion. But whether Biden secures the nomination, or Cuomo becomes a convention spoiler, bishops this autumn will face the challenge of a candidate who flaunts his Catholicism while flouting Catholic teaching on abortion.

The “mainstream media” is ignoring Biden’s dementia, sexual harassment allegation, and his lifetime lack of achievement.  Never mind the Ukraine and other scandals.

I don’t understand how anyone can support him?

And the “Catholic” bishops kowtowing  to the CINO politicians make me wonder if the FIX is in (i.e., the politicians get a pass so does the Church for the pedophilia scandal)?

POLITICAL: Her “green new deal” is most radical legislation in decades to further enslave the USA

‘Green New Deal’ details emerge, as Ocasio-Cortez preps big reveal of WW2-level mobilization
By Gregg Re | Fox News

*** begin quote ***

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday unveiled new details on the so-called “Green New Deal” she plans to introduce in a matter of days, as she worked behind-the-scenes to rally congressional support for the proposal that could cost as much as $7 trillion.

Ocasio-Cortez, who is set to unveil the plan with Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, told her fellow representatives in a letter that the Green New Deal calls for a “national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II.”

“Next week, we plan to release a resolution that outlines the scope and scale of the Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the letter, adding that the country’s near-total economic transformation should take approximately ten years.

*** and ***

The Green New Deal proposal would lead to national net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, according to Ocasio-Cortez’s letter, “through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers,” while also generating millions of “good, high-wage jobs.” Details of the letter were first published by Bloomberg.

Through it all, the Green New Deal would additionally “promote justice and equity by preventing current and repairing historic oppression to frontline and vulnerable communities,” according to Ocasio-Cortez.

*** end quote ***

But what about the the current 21T+ national debt and the guesstimated 200T+ in unfunded liabilities that our posterity will have to deal with?  Add on another 7T$?

Remember when someone says “green”. think “watermelon”.   Green on the outside; red inside. These are always thinly disguised plans to push into socialism or communism.  “Democratic”, of course. Like Venezuela.  It’s working so well there.  Only the Joesixpacks are starving.

‘Walls Work!’ Trump goes to bat for his wall again in early morning tweets as he quotes Obama and Hillary historic statements calling for better borders

  • Trump tweeted on Sunday quotes from former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calling for better borders
  • He added that the reason Democrats are against building a border wall is because ‘walls work’  
  • Senate minority Chuck Schumer revealed Trump threatened to prolong the  partial government shutdown for ‘months or even years’
  • The president confirmed this during a Rose Garden press conference and added he was ‘proud’ to do so
  • The shutdown began on December 22 and is now in its sixteenth day 
  • Trump added he’s considering declaring national emergency to get the wall built
  • Vice President Mike Pence floated a $2.5 billion compromise from Congress
  • The commander-in-chief rejected it and said he is asking for $5.6 billion

President Donald Trump went to bat for his wall at the US-Mexico border by quoting  his predecessors.

The commander-in-chief sent out tweets early Sunday morning that drew on past statements made by former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

‘”We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked…” Barrack [sic] Obama, 2005,’ the first part of the tweet reads, which was spoken by Obama at a December 2005 press conference in Florida.

*** end quote ***

Clearly this is ALL political.  All politics all the time.  And tiresome.

For two years, when the R’s controlled everything, Obamacare was NOT repealed and the Wall wasn’t funded.  Now suddenly, it’s a problem.

Why do we have such problems on the Southern Border but not on the Northern one?

I think having “illegal immigrants” die in the desert of the Souther Border is unacceptable.

I think having “illegal immigrants” collecting welfare is unacceptable. (Anyone collecting “welfare” is unacceptable.)

I think having “illegal immigrants” being forced to come here illegally  is unacceptable.

I think that the politicians and bureaucrats politicizing “illegal immigrants”  is unacceptable.

POLITICAL: DJT45 needs hire Vin to target Spygate

2018-Dec-11

https://www.vinsuprynowicz.com/?p=7096

Will there never be a counterattack?
Vin Suprynowicz

*** begin quote ***

Is that counterintuitive — that the GOP leadership would WANT to lose the majority? Not at all.

The ongoing stunt of these one-trick ponies for 30 years now is to win election by vowing to “secure the border,” clean up vote fraud (Did you know surplus Massachusetts Democrats can vote in swing-state New Hampshire — where they have a far better chance of shifting some electoral votes — by simply driving across the state line and saying “I plan to move up here next year”?); halt illegal immigration, repeal socialized medicine (“Obamacare”) and replace it with a free-market system providing better incentives for doctors and other “health care providers,” etc.

Then they get to Washington and say “Of COURSE we’d like to deliver on those promises, but the darned Democrats won’t LET us.”

This works if you’re in the minority, or at least if you don‘t control the House, the Senate, AND the presidency.

*** and ***

THE POTENTIAL TARGETS:

1) Spygate. Listen to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino lay it all out succinctly and in brief. (He’s even capable of making it funny): https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/11/23/dan-bongino-presentation-of-spygate

2) Vote fraud: When states including California and Nevada are now issuing drivers licenses to illegals, and AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERING THEM TO VOTE when they apply for those licenses, we need sting operations and massive busts not just of the illegal voters, but of the Department of Motor Vehicle employees who are illegally registering them.

3) THE ‘SOCIAL MEDIA’ GIANTS . . . . . . mostly based in Silicon Valley in Commiefornia, don’t even seem to CARE that we all know they’ve started censoring conservative voices on the Internet while allowing those who gleefully call for Trump’s assassination, who call Ivanka a “cunt” and Barron Trump “retarded,” urging that said blameless youth be “locked up in a cell with a male rapist named Bubba” are allowed to keep gleefully churning out their hate.

4) The Media  — Furthermore, the FCC (and FTC and SEC, if necessary) could be instructed to specifically ENCOURAGE AND FACILITATE mergers which would tend to create conservative alternative news networks with greater reach, rather than blocking them, until the percentage of conservative, Trump-endorsing networks reaches 40 percent.

5) The Border  — The President has Constitutional power to send the U.S. military to the border to protect this nation from invasion; no further act of Congress needed.

6) The traitors — Former Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Iran to advise our enemies on how to avoid or circumvent President Trump’s anti-nuclear embargo.

7) Has anyone at the IRS even looked to see if the Clinton Foundation has violated the terms and restrictions of its tax-exempt, nonprofit charter?

Interesting that the D’s in their attempt to play politics by delaying the introduction of Ms. Ford’s allegation, in order to delay the confirmation until after the midterm elections, may have assured Kavanaugh’s confirmation.  The smell of “politics” tainted the process from the start.  In addition to Ms. Ford’s social media being “sanitized” and her “tear stained” testimony belied what may have been a legitimate concern. Minus these actions and given enough time for the unlikeable Kavanaugh story of “choir boy” character and his “nasty side” coming out with the Committee, the whole matter would have exploded in the public’s mind to generate a real groundswell of opposition.

Instead the D’s “smelled up the joint” so the reality didn’t come out.

As usual, when the politicians and bureaucrats try and “fix” something, it comes back to bite them.  (Like the R’s preventing another FDR, that resulting in Ike being a lame duck. Or the D’s wasting the legacy of FDR by not doing anything to really help minorities. And, on and on.)

Election Security Bill Without Paper Records and Risk Limiting Audits? No Way.
BY JACOB HOFFMAN-ANDREWS
AUGUST 20, 2018

*** begin quote ***

Risk Limiting Audits: Besides building a paper trail for each and every vote cast, actually checking that paper trail must become an automatic part of every election. This is made practical by the most important innovation in election security in recent years: risk limiting audits. Done properly, risk limiting audits allow us to achieve high confidence that an election result is correct through the audit of a small, well-chosen sample of ballots. This makes audits cheaper and quicker, allowing them to be part of every election. Regularizing these audits will increase voter confidence in our democratic system.

And let’s have picture voter id too.  Can’t get on a plane without it and how much more important is an election.

Peeling back the layers of Hillary Clinton’s deceit
By Michael Goodwin
February 10, 2018 | 10:20pm

*** begin quote ***

For law enforcement, Congress and even journalists, exposing misdeeds is like peeling an onion. Each layer you remove gets you closer to the truth.

So it is with the scandalous behavior of the FBI during its probe into whether President Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in 2016. One layer at a time, we’re learning how flawed and dirty that probe was.

A top layer involves the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her married lover, Peter Strzok, the lead agent on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. They casually mention an “insurance policy” in the event Trump won the election and a plan for Strzok to go easy on Clinton because she probably would be their next boss.

*** and ***

Thus, the Democratic nominee paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation. And it is almost certain FBI agents supporting Clinton were among the anonymous sources.

Sad to say, the “truth” will come out in dribs and drabs.

POLITICAL: Time to shutdown the IRS and the FBI

Here’s another cartoon on the “explosive” Nunes memo. It was supposed to “blow up” the Russia investigation. Instead, it exposed the fact that Trump’s campaign recruited someone identified as a Russian spy 3 years earlier to be a foreign policy advisor! Good move, Republicans! Keep it up!

# – # – #

I think you are misreading the impact of the memo. Senior FBI officials were not the impartial agents of goodness that Elliot Ness and Effram Zimbilist Jr portrayed them to be. In fact, even by the “loose” standards of FISA, senior FBI officials misled the Court to issue warrants on an incomplete basis. Possible perjurious. Like when the BHO44 used the IRS against his political opponents, here’s EVIDENCE that the same thing happened at the FBI. Both imho are equally unacceptable. Hence the IRS and FBI must be shutdown to prevent it from happening again.

Subject: 8 reasons you should reverse Jeff Sessions’ marijuana policy.

Reversing Jeff Sessions’ marijuana policy will benefit your administration in multiple ways.

Here are the 8 points…

#1: This will hurt you next election. The American people increasingly favor marijuana legalization.

#2: You’ve been achieving great things with de-regulation. This policy goes in the opposite direction. In fact…

#3: It will hurt economic growth. Even the stock market has embraced the marijuana industry. Don’t cause market uncertainty.

#4: This policy will also harm your promise to reduce crime. It will reinvigorate the black market and refill our prisons.

#5: There are too many laws to enforce. Government should focus and prioritize. Enforcing federal marijuana laws is a distraction.

#6: Republicans are supposed to favor federalism. States should made these decisions, per the Tenth Amendment. This policy harms that federalism.

#7: You promised during your campaign to respect the decisions made about marijuana in the states.

#8: Reversing an underling’s mistake will show the American people that you are both prudent and in charge.

AND, by ending the “drug war”, what will all the illegal drug gangs do? Stop shooting everything in sight in turf wars. Pepsi and Coke driver don’t shoot it out for shelf space.

I trust that WalMart, Walgreens, RiteAid, CVS, and others will do a far better job delivering “clean” and “safe” drugs to those who want them while keeping treatment options front and center.

Prohibition ended because “We, The Sheeple” refuse to convict. The same should happen now.

NBA Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley, says that Tuesday’s Democrat victory in Alabama proves that if Democrats started doing more for Black Americans, they could win more elections.After Democrat Doug Jones won a shocking victory in deep red Alabama, Barkley, an Alabama native, said how thrilled he was with the victory.

“I’m so proud of my state. I love my state. We got some amazing people here. Yeah, we got a bunch of rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people, but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today,” Barkley said on CNN according to The Hill.

Make no mistake I like Charles Barkley even though I never met him. 


On TV over the years, he always came across as an honest fellow.


Unfortunately, here I think he’s made a bad mistake. The D’s, like the R’s, are only interested in —  remember the three “laws” of political motivation —  (1) rewarding your friends; (2) punishing your enemies; and (3) feathering your own nest. 


Ever election cycle, the D’s count on the “black vote” (their terminology; not mine). Just as the R’s count on their “base” to show up. Sprinkle in a few Greens and Libertarians to subtract from the appropriate totals and that the “election calculus”.


I’d prefer that Charles talk to Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. who attribute most, if not all of, the problems that “blacks” have to Gooferment “help”.


Best thing that could happen is if the Gooferment left us all alone. Second best, if the Gooferment can’t stop meddling, would be repeal the minimum wage laws. They hurt everyone!

Mark Perry returns to the show to discuss his latest article for the American Conservative, “Tillerson, Mattis Warned Trump Against Embassy Move.” Perry doubts that Trump understands the true effect of his decision and explains why Jerusalem is integral to the Arab world and to Palestine in particular. Scott asks if, now that the two-state solution is clearly over, peace can be found in a single state—assuming apartheid conditions are lifted. Perry believes that the silver lining is that the Jerusalem decision creates division in what has become an ever-cozier relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Scott then turns to Perry’s new book, “The Pentagon’s Wars: The Military’s Undeclared Wars Against America’s Presidents.” Mark Perry is the author of Talking to Terrorists: Why America Must Engage with its Enemies and The Most Dangerous Man in America: The Making of Douglas MacArthur. His most recent book, The Pentagon’s Wars was released in October.

(1) It may have been or not. We’ll probably never know. Did Trump see the Israel and Saudi Arabia “alignment” as a threat to the American dominated world?

(2) The best point of the show imho is the recognition that the warfare state is killing our military with constant deployments. At some point, the troops are going to say “no”. We’ll have to watch reenlistment rate to see it. Remember the fall of Rome after the Legions were no longer composed of Roman citizens. 

(3) Interesting that the guest and host seem to feel that the foreign policy of the USA is controlled by zionists. And the influence of their lobbyists and donors is waning because of an awakening by voters, politicians, and bureaucrats that this is not in the USA’s best interest.

I personally think there will be no peace in the Middle East until Israel’s right to exist is accepted. Until them it’s just a ongoing war. Considering that Israel has / will defend itself and done it very well everytime tested, I don’t this is going to be settled at a conference table.

POLITICAL: Nullification is Constitutional and effective; as is Secession if we’re will to fight

Surprise, the Mainstream Media is Wrong Again: Yes, Nullification Does Work

*** begin quote ***

You don’t have to dig into a history book to prove nullification works. I can prove it does with one word.

Weed.

In 1996, California voters approved Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act, authorizing the possession, cultivation, and use of cannabis (marijuana) for limited medical use.

The federal government claims the power to strictly enforce a total prohibition of marijuana. It makes no exception for medical purposes. Despite federal law, states have advanced the issue each year. This has happened in spite of a 2005 Supreme Court opinion supporting federal prohibition, and a relentless year-to-year increase in spending and enforcement efforts by the federal government.

Today, despite ongoing attempts to enforce federal prohibition, 21 states and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for medical use, and 14 states and D.C. have decriminalized marijuana possession. Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington State have all legalized marijuana for recreational use. Each year, new state laws and regulations help expand the market, and each expansion further nullifies the unconstitutional federal ban in effect.

No matter what the mainstream tells you, nullification works. History proves this. The present proves this. And we will continue to prove it in the future.

Marijuana was outlawed to protect Hearst’s paper factories from competition. Fueled by that racist and untrue “Reeffer Madness”, “We, The Sheeple” were stampeded into another attempt at “Prohibition”.

Any prohibition doesn’t work. It merely raises the cost to the consumer and allows politicians and bureaucrats to exert more un-Constitutional control over “We, The Sheeple”.

Argh!
