Democratic socialists…

leave a comment »

… held their  national convention  this weekend in Georgia.  That is the group Sen. Bernie Sanders and AOC and a whole bunch of  other Congress  critters belong to.    The link will also tell you what they believe in,  so you’ll understand when I say that every one of them violates their oath of office daily.   This article may also convince you that they are crazy as hell.   They are triggered by sensory overload,  leading me to believe that attending a college football game would render them little puddles of hypersensitivity.  If gendered conversation and whispers among 1,500 at a convention set them off they are not very tough on a physical level,  but what they believe and what they are attempting to do to the country should terrify you.

If you tire of slogging through the DSA platform,  just read this  fine introduction  to a new book which uses beer to explain the failures of socialism.   I’ll get my copy this week,  but Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell,  the economists who authored “Socialism Sucks: Two Economists Drink Their Way Through the Unfree World”,  write to devastating effect to explain how the economics of socialism affect something as ordinary as one of my favorite libations.

As a further warning,  we are al in danger from every one of the Democratic presidential candidates,  even the ones who ran merely to raise their profile and increase their ability to be paid money for something other than their actual jobs.   The  liberal elites  are amongst the deadliest creatures on the planet.

Crenshaw on spending …

leave a comment »

Former Navy SEAL and first-term Congressman Dan Crenshaw has a cogent explanation  for the perennial spending orgy in Congress.  It is well worth your time and might help you  target your efforts against the spending more efficiently.

Surely you jest!

leave a comment »

Are you kidding me?  So far Democrats and their incompetent,  uncooperative Congress have led to an invasion of illegal aliens,  deaths of migrant children,  deaths of Americans,  the loss of many jobs,  and the only legislation they have passed will make us less safe,  less wealthy,  less healthy,  and with a bleaker future.   They can  manage multiple investigations without any evidence and smear anyone they don’t like,  but they can’t manage achieve anything for the people they are supposed to actually represent.

And now  they want  a raise?  They should all be giving money back to us taxpayers and being fined for incompetence,  lying,  and in more than a few cases,  treachery and treason.

They ain’t woke…

leave a comment »

Maxine Waters,  the frighteningly ignorant Congresswoman from California  —  oh, wait — that’s California’s 43rd Congressional district.   She routinely makes an ass of herself on the floor of the House.  It’s confusing,  because she  is one  of at least five California representatives who does not live in the district she represents,  which has the second highest percentage of African-American residents in the state.  Where she actually resides is only 6% back residents.

I cannot fathom why she keeps getting re-elected by people who actually live in Inglewood, which is where the district is.   I also wonder how she can afford a 6,000-square foot,  multi-million dollar mansion after having spent the last 40 years working in government?  Her excuse is that her home used to be in District 43.

When she isn’t demanding Pres. Trump’s impeachment at the top of her lungs,  she is urging people to stay “woke”  and claiming how much millennials listen to her.  It may be that the shiny has worn off the relationship, as this well-publicized campaign event  shows only  a handful of attendees of any age.

Queen Sheila…

leave a comment »

United Airlines  has apologized  to the customer whose seat they gave away to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee,  who is always high on the list of the most unpleasant people on the planet.  But not even a $500 travel voucher to the passenger is sufficient to make up for the airline’s cowardice in the face of the arrogance and greed of the  Congressional battleaxe.

Of course the only airline ever to stand up to Lee’s  repeated bad  behavior no longer exists,  making the rest especially wary.  The woman is a characterless clump of dumb,  but she does wield real power,  despite blaming the current situation,  entirely of her own making,  on racism.  Shame on her constituents who keep voting her back into office instead of throwing her ass to the curb where it belongs.

Fake stories, real leaks…

leave a comment »

Read this  slowly and carefully.   Assuming the Conservative Treehouse is correct,  and I have no reason to think otherwise,  we now possibly know who at least one of the leakers is.   I was paying attention a while back when when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates said they were forming a counterintelligence unit to identify the leakers.

House Intelligence Committee Minority Chairman Adam Schiff apparently wasn’t listening,  since he may have been the one caught leaking through his apparatchik colleagues at CNN.  It’s pretty much a classic intel move.  You would think that,  as a member of the Gang of Eight,  Rep. Schiff would have been aware of it and would have recognized it.    The Go8 has oversight of every U.S. covert intelligence operation around the world,  and oversee the NSA,  CIA,  FBI,  DNI,  and every single intelligence unit and operation.

The worms are beginning to turn,  but  not many are  noticing yet,  even amongst the supposedly  smart media…..

What wimps!

So out of all the current and former female members of Congress only Mary Bono,  a Republican,  had the stones and the sense to confront the man harassing her?   And you sheeple expect your female Congress critters to fight for you when they won’t even  fight for  themselves except to secure a permanent feeding place at the government trough?
