  1. 2019 Dem Primary Watch Here's a catch-all thread for Dem primary comments. We need a thread like this because over 20 candidates is hard to follow. So here's the first item--the important Dem Primary news of today. New Age Guru Marianne Williamson is in the debates. Author Marianne Williamson Qualifies For Presidential Debate Through Donor Requirement Before 9 Politicians Ohhhmmmmmmmmm... Michael
  2. Disrupting How Progressivism Works in America Regular Progressivism as a process of political change in America (baby steps) rarely fails, but it's slow. As shown below, there is a tonic. The jig can get blown when a Black Swan (say, a wildcard like President Trump) disrupts the ongoing progress of the ideological-political conveyor belt. The result is that, in panic, the "Progressives" who are progressing a specific agenda will freak and show their cards way too early. It's the paranoia of a liar who loses the attention of his target and thinks that means he's been busted. Here's how it works. 1. The Progressives decide on an unpopular position they want to ram down the throats of everyone, which means they get the power to do that and others not only have to take it, they have to pay for it. For example, let's say they wanted the US government to pay for the health care of illegal aliens. They know few people want that, so they first have to put in a foundation and dress it up to make it sound reasonable, even the opposite. Then, from a position of power, present the foundation to the public. President Obama did this with Obamacare. 2. After their "foundation ploy" is out in the open, they fish for displays by the opposition--they actually goad the opposition to get reactions. That way they can bash the opposition with trigger words/phrases and accusations about violating procedures of decency, yada yada yada--and they have prepared all this in advance. For example, in September 2009, Representative Joe Wilson from South Carolina gave President Obama a gift when he yelled out in Congress, "You lie!" to Obama's claim that no health care benefits would be given to illegal aliens. Obama had been goading the opposition in his speech to the joint session of Congress and practically daring anyone from the opposition to say anything. Just listen to the booing-like reactions every time he said the opposition was getting it all wrong. Obama's smirk after Wilson yelled that "you lie" comment said it all, though. You can almost see him think, Ha! That worked better than I expected. Then he recovered his "serious" demeanor and went on to claim that no federal funds would pay for abortions (but that's a different issue he was ramming down people's throat using this same system, double dipping so to speak). In this post, I will only stay with the issue of illegal aliens getting US taxes in the form of free health care for the sake of making the process very easy to understand. 2. KABOOM! See the headlines at the time. The condescension and tut-tut-tutting from Progressives was as thick as a ton of cowpiles. The Progressives lived off the fallout (to that and the general wave it created) without any serious pushback for several years. Hell, ripples even extended into the next administration when McCain stopped Obamacare from being repealed in the Senate. 3. But President Trump happened, their Queen designate was not crowned, and the Progressives not only lost their power, they lost their bearings. I don't need to illustrate that. We all know what happened. The result is that their timing on the true intended outcomes of their different policy agendas went seriously haywire and they have been running around in circles ever since. 4. Now they have a shot to regain their power with another election, but they have lost all sense of how their own system works policy-wise, in other words, it is grounded on selling a bait-and-switch through patience, not hysteria or brute force. (Apropos, brute force is not out of the picture, though. It only comes in at the end if they get real power, not "checked and balanced" power. Then they start the mass killings few of them, only the insiders, realize is coming. See the several major leftie nations where mass graves exist as examples.) The video below is a perfect example of what happens when someone disrupts the Progressive process in a major way. Don't forget, Obama claimed there is no way the US will pay for the health care of illegal aliens, right? Just look. Every goddam one of those Democrats on the first night of the primary debates for the 2020 election raised their hand saying they wanted illegal aliens to get US taxes in the form of free health care. The truth is, even for Obama back then, that is what they wanted all along. The rest was bait. But they screwed up. They just gave President Trump and other Republicans running in 2020 a hell of an image for campaign ads. All because they lost their marbles when someone threw a monkeywrench in the gears of the conveyor belt they were on. They were doing the long con and got stalled by an unexpected event. Now, in panic, thinking they've been busted anyway, they are unmasking themselves on the long con thinking this is how they are going to get their power back. Jeez... Talk about discombobulated... I thought they were better as opponents... The conclusion? We need more Black Swans. We need more disruptive, but productive, people like President Trump. The Progressives will not stop building sandcastles of worship to lousy gods to mold with cement, but a good strong wave before the cement dries collapses them every time. Michael
  3. Three hundred and twenty-five days until the first chance Democratic electors have to select a candidate (beginning with the Iowa caucuses), plus the time between that caucus and the end of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee Wisconsin on July 16 2020. I'll be using this topic thread to note various peaks of excitement between now and then. I don't think there will be much excitement on the Republican side -- since barring unforeseen circumstances, President Trump is assured the nomination of his party. Ballotpedia has a good, clean, in depth section devoted to the exciting Democratic candidates ... President Trump had the kindest words for one declared Democratic hopeful, Senator Kamala Harris. From an interview with the New York Times shortly after she declared: Michael has debuted a new topic, 2019 Dem Primary Watch [May 8 2019]
  4. So... Bernie has declared he is a candidate in the Dem primaries for president. He's already started advertising his platform (meme from here). Michael
  5. Veritas, O'Keefe and the 2018 Midterm Elections I don't have time right now to do a great job on the opening post, but this has to go up because time is running out. Today is Thursday and voting is Tuesday. If anyone is interested in seeing the undercover videos James O'Keefe has been producing and presenting about Democrats admitting on video they are lying to the public just to get elected, you can go here: Project Veritas Action Also, for a lot more videos , see: Project Veritas Action YouTube Channel So far, O'Keefe has nailed Kate Brown of Oregon, Phil Bredesen of Tennessee, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Andrew Gillum of Florida. Since Gillum was the latest, check this article and video out. It's ugly. Gillum Makes Promises He Can’t Keep, “that’s not for [voters] to know” Says Campaign Staff in Undercover Video I will post more on this thread, but please join in if you feel the urge. We have until Tuesday to spread the word and help make a difference. Michael
  6. Hillary and the MSM (main stream media) are blaming Russian hack of DNC and Podesta email for Trump's election win. Obama pledged retaliation for Russian hackers. Chinese Navy captured an unmanned underwater drone lost by US Navy in international waters in China Sea. Gold surged on news. Effort to twist electors arms and throw 2016 presidential selection into the House still going strong. I think the Democrats led by Obama have decided to "poison the well" before Trump takes office, by creating New Cold War with Russia and China, creating crisis to kneecap Trump's first 100 days. Not implausible that CIA feels imperiled by Trump policy of business-friendly foreign policy. http://www.moonofalabama.org/2016/12/elite-coup.html
  7. I hear that the DNC has arranged for a large number of women who are mothers of young black men shot by police to appear at the convention. The idea is to reinforce the false narrative that police are racist and killing young black men in disproportionate numbers. One of the women is the mother of Michael Brown, who Eric Holder's Justice department reluctantly concluded was trying to kill the police officer who had to shoot him out of self-defense. That they would include her tells me that they have reached a high level of confidence that they are no longer bound by the truth or any facts in their push to incite fear and hatred for their political ends. This goes so far beyond cheap pandering for the black vote. It is identity politics being placed ahead of the very life our culture. Where did we lose the commonsense it takes to say, "Hey, that's racist and extremely dangerous"? Progressives have sanctioned Black Lives Matters even after the organization held marches where the chants were calls to kill cops. Representatives of this group have gone, by invitation, to the white house, have met with Hillary, and will be at the Democratic Convention. And now we have had two separate incidents where cops were hunted down and killed by angry, young black men. This is the ugly dead end of identity politics. It is Hillary Clinton willing to ignore the incendiary climate her calls for policing the police are having when the temperature has already reached the point where body bags are being filled.
