Seattle, CHAZ, CHOP…

Mayor Jenny Durkan issued an  emergency order  demanding that the radicals leave the Capitol Hill area.  This was after they marched on her house.   I hear her home address was supposed to be secret because of her previous job but one of the city council members gave it to the protesters.   I had an entire archive of links to various articles about the “autonomous zone’ which after one day couldn’t provide its own food,  clothing or anything else,  but this example of whose ox is gored sums it up pretty well in the pix and comments.

Go here  for more pictures of the incredible mess left by the lovers.  Mayor Durkan doesn’t regret anything  except being shown for the progressive fool she is,  which just might affect her chances of re-election.

Lock-downs killed…

leave a comment »

The per-capita death rate for the coronavirus is  75% lower  in states that did not panic into lock-down mode.   That means that Speaker Pelosi’s  insane claims  about the GOP being responsible  for murder are actually backwards.   Yes,  the states that didn’t panic were mostly smaller,  more rural states,  but the Democrats and their media handmaidens want you to believe that if you have COVID-19 you will die.  At the same time,  they are reluctant to point out the communities and cultures and age groups now reporting more cases.  Guess what:  the more testing you perform,  the more cases you will discover.   Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to lie about how many deaths his orders caused, and the Dems all pathetically claim the lock-downs and other restrictions are to protect the citizenry!   And keep in mind that research shows that thousands of travelers carried coronavirus from New York to the rest of the U.S. in early March, which is responsible  for 65% of  cases.

Democrats are desperate to keep the lock-down going and economies closed because they believe that  no one will remember that Pres. Trump got the economy going to start with.   The DNC is terrified that blacks and other minorities will recall that they enjoyed the lowest unemployment rates ever.   The media is driven to misinform and outright lie to further that agenda,  and thus they pressure Republican governors to do the same stupid stuff the Democrats are doing.

Most of them are resisting that pressure,  some magnificently and gloriously.  The Democrats have already put themselves on record demanding we taxpayers should bail them out financially.  No thanks – their budgetary problems are caused by crony capitalism, corruption, incompetence and deliberate malfeasance.  They have invited the riots and looting and assaults and chaos so let them deal with their own hideous creations and the consequences of the same. Tell your Congress critters, newspapers,  and the President your views.

How many more?

leave a comment »

This is  what two black men think about white liberals,   conservatives,  and Trump as a racist.  How many more articulate black men with class and logic and reason agree with them?   If I were a Biden supporter,  these videos would be giving me nightmares.

Wouldn’t it…

leave a comment »

…be wonderful if  this article  were true and the Babylon Bee weren’t a satire site?   Of course, if  “white privilege”  were a real thing,  Democrats would be forced to resign or stay as hypocrites.  never mind –  Democrats gave up the notion of shame for themselves many years ago.   What does exist is wealth privilege.   Hollywood stars have recently been in the news  for cheating  to get their offspring into college.   Then they lied about it,  and then they cried for forgiveness.  All of them should do time,  very few of them will.  A number of Congress critters have been caught doing things which would put us ordinary people in a jail cell for anywhere from a week to many years.  We would lose our jobs and reputations.    Republicans occasionally pay the price;  Democrats almost never do, as do the bureaucrats who get caught.  I wait with bated breath to see if Obama’s cabinet goes to jail,  or pays massive fines, or both.

As to wealth privilege,  talk to any white person who grew up poor and wore blue jeans before they became fashionable.   They got followed around the store  because they might shoplift,  and they didn’t get served at car dealerships because they looked poor,  even though they had the cash necessary to buy anything on the floor.  They drew extra attention from law enforcement because they were barefoot and their shirts had a mended placket.  No matter what they tell you,  looks do play a part in how others treat you.  If you have money,  you will get away with malfeasance.    Sometimes merely the right connections will suffice.    If you don’t,  the law will be applied and sometimes much more harshly than warranted.

I might be tempted to believe something Democrats claim if it were not for a fine socialist like Bernie Sanders who targeted millionaires until he himself became one,  then he only went after billionaires.   Come to think of it,  his wife bankrupted a college in Vermont,  lied on a loan application and didn’t get so much as a wrist slap.

Only thing standing…

…between America  and socialism  is Donald J. Trump,  says George P. Bush,  former governor Jeb Bush’s son,  in making it clear he will vote for Pres. Trump this year.   He also pointed out that only Trump  can bring  the economy back.

Just last month,  Biden named Bernie Sanders and AOC to lead his policy agenda.   Both are card-carrying socialists and supporters of leftist dictatorships.   They would be only to happy to take by force all your assets,  your livelihoods,  and subject you and your family to re-education should you dare to resist.   If you vote for Biden,  you are voting for the destruction of America,  plain and simple,   Is this what you wish for?

Peaceably to assemble…

leave a comment »

Neither Gov. Andrew Cuomo nor his brother,  Chris,  a CNN talking head,  have ever struck me as overly gifted in the intelligence department.   Chris huffed on his live show this week “…And please,  show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful….”     You’d think that having an undergraduate degree from Fordham University, and a law degree from Yale might have exposed Mr. Cuomo to  the First  Amendment,  the one his job relies upon.

But Chris Cuomo is a progressive,  and words mean exactly what they want them to mean when they want them to mean that  –  until they don’t.   Yes,  that is rather confusing,  isn’t it?   When they can’t trick the words into becoming other words,  they demand people accept their usage of words,  then they ignore it,  and finally they just lie.

He may have had to take the bar exam multiple times to pass it,  even in Arkansas,  but he is technically a lawyer,  so he has no excuse for making such an idiotic statement which he knew to be untrue on all counts.   But that’s exactly how progressives do it,  folks.

He wouldn’t care…

…if he didn’t have a primary  —  that is what New York Congressman Eliot Engel said,  and for once,  I believe the man.  By the way,  he was honest in a way Democrats seldom are,  and he was merely saying what everyone in his party thinks.   It is just so unusual that progressives actually say what they truly think.    They have used and abused blacks  –  all minorities, really —  for so long that they have  ceased seeing any of them as real people,  much less individuals.

If you vote for Democrats you join an amorphous blob and that is exactly how they will treat you.   If anyone believes they are unheard and ignored,  just wait until Democrats take over.

Lights out boomerangs…

leave a comment »

The Democratic party and its media handmaidens are so desperate to denigrate Trump they  put up a  photo of  the White House,  then digitally removed the lights to claim that Trump had turned off all the lights and was hiding in a bunker.   First, the shot is stock footage, taken when Obama lived in the White House.  I’ve asked all the Dems who jumped on this if they leave their home and office lights on 24/7.  They don’t,  you don’t,  and neither does the White House, which generally switches off most illumination about 11 PM.   Furthermore,  the photograph was digitally altered to remove the outside illumination which is part of a security feature and remains on until daylight makes them superfluous.

Do enjoy the Twitter remarks ,  which rightly  slam Hillary Clinton and other Democrats for jumping on this crazy train.  It took a smart phone less than 3 seconds to locate and identify the original of this picture,  so Democrats will not spend 3 seconds getting anything right.   I see no evidence that any Democrat retains the ability to feel shame about anything.  Their behavior reflects their lack of principles and integrity.

You get what you vote for…

leave a comment »

If you are so unfortunate as to live in a city run by Democrats,  you get riots and destruction.    John Nolte lays it all out for  you here.    And like Nolte,  I tend to think that those who keep voting Democrats into office deserve the disasters they voted for.   Those who voted for a better alternative don’t deserve to be dragged through all the chaos and mayhem,  but I sincerely hope they band together and vote the SOB’s out of office.

I would advise that they then run them out of the county,  and then the state,  but I want none of them landing within 500 miles of me.   That would include the staggeringly  stupid Fairfax  County Democratic Committee in Virginia, which tweeted:  “…Riots are an integral part of this country’s march towards progress.”   It scrubbed the tweet,  but some clever patriot grabbed a screen shot which will live on despite the deletion.
