The Left’s Idiocy

Watching the left make fools of themselves used to be funny. I don’t think it is anymore. Partly because I think that they are so far out in left field, they not only have left the stadium, they’ve left the parking lot, and the city the stadium is in. It’s not funny because most of these people actually are starting to believe the garbage they are spewing.

There are some funny things left to chuckle about, however.

Rachel Maddow, the host on the little-watched MSNBC, and the only reason that network can still pay its  electric bill, came out two days before the June job numbers and said, “It’s going to be terrible!” It wasn’t. In fact, more jobs were added in June 2020 than any other month in the history of our country. She didn’t smirk when that came out.

But the one that got me, the one that almost made me vomit was Don Lemon of CNN. His idea to “keep” Mount Rushmore, and make it acceptable to blacks, though I doubt it would matter much to the Native American population in the Black Hills, is to add the face of one Bobo Obama to the mix. So, you’d have George Washington, the father of our country; Abraham Lincoln, the great emancipator, Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, Theodore Roosevelt, who happened to be president when the OK was given to build the monument, and Bobo Obama who….who….who…who served two terms? I mean, other than making pre-existing conditions illegal in Obamacare, can anyone name one accomplishment that is universally hailed during his administration? No, I’m not counting giving an otherwise unemployable Hillary Clinton a job. I don’t want to count the 38 scandals his administration was embroiled in. I can’t count the Trans-Pacific Partnership since that never really took hold. His Supreme Court nominees have been a bust. Obamacare (other than the pre-existing condition which actually was a good idea) was an abortion. Renaming Mt. McKinley, as Mt. Denali wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t called for. No, I can’t recall anything good that Obama did that still exists today! It’s like he never existed as president.

So, why does Don Lemon want to put his mug on a mountain? Is it because Lemon realizes that if you take Obama out of the picture, the last Democrat president that actually did something that meant something was Lyndon Johnson? I mean, he did the whole civil rights thing, and that was OK. He did the “war on poverty”, and that was an expensive boondoggle that’s wasted over $20 TRILLION. You can go back to JFK and you get the whole Bay of Pigs thing, which wasn’t very good. You got the Russian missile crisis, which turned out alright.

Don Lemon HAD to include Obama, not because he’s black, but because frankly, he’s the only Democrat in about the last 50 years that managed to do one thing that was positive. And he did do ONE thing. The rest of the time he was out playing golf or shooting hoops. Nothing else from his presidency really stands. OK, I guess you’ve still got DACA, but that’s being torn down as soon as John Roberts wakes up from hitting his head last month.

Sorry, Don. We reserve Mount Rushmore for either the creme de la creme of presidents or the guy that actually approved the project. Your guy fits neither category. In fact, he probably ranks with Jimmy Carter and Millard Filmore at the bottom of the list. Nice try though!

Your COVID-19 Update *You Need To Read This!

Now, I really don’t understand why everyone isn’t following the same rules right now. They’re very clear. So, let’s take a minute and go over them again.

First, you must not leave the house, for any reason, unless of course, you HAVE a reason, and then you may leave the house. All stores are closed except those that are open. And all stores MUST close unless, of course, they need to stay open.

This virus is deadly, but don’t be afraid of it. it can only kill people who are vulnerable, and also those that are not vulnerable. We should stay locked down until the virus stops infecting people. It will only stop infecting people if enough of us get infected that we build immunity. It is very important that we get infected, and also that we do not get infected!

You should not go to the doctor’s office or the hospital unless you have to go there…unless of course you are too sick to go there. The virus has no effect on children, except on those children that it effects. The virus will remain active on surfaces for two hours, or four hours, or six hours, but in most cases a day and not hours, and it needs a damp environment, or a cold environment that is warm and dry in the air, unless the air is plastic.

Schools are closed, so you need to home-school your children unless you send them to school because you are not home. If you are at home, you can school your children using various portals and online classrooms unless you have poor internet, more than one child, only one computer, or you’re working from home. Baking cakes can be considered math, science, or art. Because you are home educating, you can include household chores in their education curriculum.

If you are home educating, you may start drinking at approximately 10am every day. If you are not home educating children, you may also start drinking at approximately 10am.

Masks are useless at protecting you against the virus, but you still need to wear one because it can save lives. And, in some cases it may even be mandatory, but also, maybe not.

You must not go to work, but you can get another job at which point you may go to work. Stay home! I don’t know how many more celebrities we need to have tell you how important it is to go outside and take care of your mental health.

There is no shortage of groceries in supermarkets, there are simply many things missing. You don’t need to go and buy a bunch of toilet paper, but you should buy some in case you need it. If you are sick you can go out once you are better. But those in your household, they cannot go out once you are better, unless of course, they need to go out.

Animals are not effected by the virus…except for that cat in Belgium who tested positive back in February…plus a couple of tigers. The number of Corona-related deaths will be announced daily, but we don’t know how many people are infected because we are only testing those who are almost dead to determine if that’s what they would die of. The people who die of Corona who are not counted won’t or will be counted, but maybe not.

You need to protect yourselves at these times. You should be eating well and exercising, but only exercising and eating what you have at home and avoid going to the stores unless you need toilet paper or fence paint.

It’s important to get fresh air. But don’t go to parks. But DO go walk other places, just don’t sit down, unless you’re old or pregnant. But if you do sit down, don’t sit for too long, unless you are old or pregnant, in which case you need to sit down. If you do sit down, don’t eat, unless you’ve had a long walk, which you are allowed to do if you are old or pregnant except for times in which you aren’t!

Don’t visit old people. But you have a moral obligation to take care of old people and bring them food and medicine.

And finally, no businesses will go down due to Coronavirus, except those businesses that go down due to Coronavirus.

I hope this cleared up any questions about what we should and should not be doing during this time. Please, educate your friends and family with this information, so we can remove any and all confusion surrounding this time.

Whew!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

 

Transforming America

Over the weekend, Joe Biden sent out a tweet that basically said if he were elected, he could bring the country together, and “transform America”. I’m hoping that sent shivers down your spine like it did mine.

The last time a politician on the national scene said that they were going to “systematically transform our government” was back in 2008 when Bobo Obama was running for the White House. We learned later (and those of us that actually knew he was a socialist knew then) that he was talking about taking the country far to the left of either George W. Bush or Bill Clinton.

And that is what has me worried about Biden.

What we are seeing with the Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots across the country, and with the destruction of our past presidents’ statues in many places is just the beginning. It is a transformational change taking shape. These socialists are trying to destroy America. They are trying to tear down the institutions of our government so that they can rebuild it in a more socialistic, far more left-wing government that you and I won’t even recognize. Gone will be the Declaration of Independence. Gone will be the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Gone will be the Supreme Court and the system of “checks and balances”. You won’t begin to recognize America any longer.

And the people in power in Washington, DC are letting it happen. People like Pelosi, and Schumer, and Schiff, and Nadler are kowtowing to these groups without realizing they are the ones that are going to be led to slaughter. They will not only lose their jobs in the process, but they will also most likely lose their lives. And Joe Biden is included in that group. Because very few people sitting in either house of the Capitol building right now are in lock-step with these people. And even fewer will survive.

It’s time America wakes up and realizes that what is happening today on the streets of our cities is a revolution. It’s the second American revolution. Only this one is a quiet revolution. There will be no Breeds’ Hill. There will be no Ft. McHenry. There will be no midnight ride of Paul Revere. There will be riots and acquiescence to the leftist racists that are hell-bent on taking over our country. And if we continue to watch it unfold on TV and not take part in quelling the riots, we will get what we deserve.

No, my friends, the second American revolution is well underway. If you love your country as it was, you need to fight what’s happening. If you don’t, the country you love will be no more.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Answer THIS, Joe!

Joe Biden says he wants to be president. Well, if you want to be president, I’m of the opinion that you need to answer the tough questions. If you can’t do that, you probably can’t actually make the tough calls in a pressure-packed situation when you need to. So, with that in mind, the Trump/Pence campaign has come up with five questions that Joe Biden should probably answer before he starts criticizing Donald Trump on anything.

  1. Since she is leading your “climate change task force”, when will you campaign with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?   Now, to be honest, don’t think for a minute that he’s going to do that. The follow-up question that I would have to this is, Michael Shellenberger, one of the most famous “climate change activists” the world has known, has come out and apologized for the alarmist attitude that the climate change folks have been spewing for the past few decades. Are you going to embrace Shellenberger, like you have in the past?
  2. Why do former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s handwritten notes indicate you personally suggested using the Logan Act to set up General Michael Flynn after you claimed you knew nothing about the investigation? Again, this is a gotcha type of question, no doubt. But it’s valid. Biden claims that he was in a meeting prior to Flynn being charged, but he had nothing to do with it. Yet, according to Strzok’s own notes, it was Biden who was leading the charge.
  3. Do you agree with the Democrat National Committee that the July 4th celebration at Mount Rushmore glorified white supremacy? If so, are you willing to go on record that you are in favor of tearing down Mount Rushmore? How far are you willing to go to get the black vote? Native Americans are against this as well, as they say, it desecrates their sacred lands of the Black Hills of South Dakota.
  4. As roving mobs terrorized citizens, defaced and tore down public monuments, and targeted Washington, Jefferson, and even Abraham Lincoln (just because he was white), you have remained silent. Why? And would you remain silent if these same mobs decided to target you for being a rich, white supremacist male? What would the difference be between you and the people they are already targeting?
  5. If you have been warning people about the Coronavirus since January, as you say, why was it that you continued to campaign normally until March 9th, and call for the Wisconsin primary election to proceed in April. In fact, why did members of your party hold a “party” of their own in Chinatown in San Francisco in the middle of February, inviting the world to come down and party and the Mayor of Los Angeles gave permission for the Los Angeles Marathon to go forward on March 9th. If it was so bad that you criticized Donald Trump for not acting early enough, why didn’t you stop campaigning immediately, and call out your fellow Democrats for their actions that undoubtedly cost thousands of people to be put at risk?

I somehow doubt I’m going to hear those questions ever be asked of Joe Biden at a press conference because the media has no genitalia. I also doubt he’s actually going to come up with an answer to these questions because he can’t even quote the Declaration of Independence correctly.

Sorry, Joe. You’re not qualified to be president!

Helping Pay For The Protests

Minnesota Governor, Tim Walz (D), has asked Donald Trump to help pay for the damage that was done to the city of Minneapolis to the tune of $500 million.

Huh?

Yeah.

Walz said, “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to the critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives.”

Now, before we proceed, let me make it very clear that I do indeed feel for the people who lost businesses that in a lot of cases they spent their entire adult lives building up. But at the very same time, I don’t think it’s fair that my tax dollars go to help pay for lawless acts that were perpetrated on the city of Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

There have been over 215 deaths since Floyd was killed on May 25th. That’s 215 mostly black people that have lost their lives. Yet we don’t mourn them (oh, their families do, I’m sure). We aren’t protesting because they are dead. And for the people that belong to Antifa and other racist and socialist groups designed to bring down the United States, they are going to get away with it scot-free? I don’t think so.

What should happen is that anyone arrested in Minneapolis, or in Seattle, or Washington, DC, or New York City, or anywhere else that was charged with rioting, looting, or violating the curfews and being where they shouldn’t, should have to shoulder the burden that they caused. So, if the bill is $1 million say, and there were ten people arrested, those ten people now owe $100,000 each. I’m sure in the case of Minneapolis, there were more than 500 people rioting and looting. And I’m sure the police, with all of the video cameras and surveillance cameras out there, could identify a lot of them. Hell, they already have picked up and charged a kid that was seen burning a statue in Washington.

Why the rest of the country should shoulder the burden of paying for rioters looting is beyond me. They need to be made to pay, and if they don’t pay they either live in jail and work it off, or, if they have jobs, they lose 50-75% of their salary until they’ve paid off their portion. That should deter a lot of this crap from happening in the future.

Of course, we’ve learned that it was George Soros, the Hungarian-American billionaire that was taking out ads on Craig’s List offering to pay people to protest and riot and loot and cause mayhem. So, maybe Soros should be made to pay the half-billion to Minneapolis, and the cost of whatever happened in Seattle, New York, Washington, DC, and other cities around the country, along with those that did the deeds.

People have to learn at some point in their lives that there are consequences for their actions. To not learn that is a waste of time and these folks in particular need to learn that they either learn it, or they pay the price a different way!

Happy Fourth Of July!

I want to wish everyone a very Happy 4th Of July during what has been a most unusual year. Having said that, I’m going to give way to someone that has been a huge inspiration and motivation throughout my life to deliver a very special message today. Maybe you’ve seen it before…it’s certainly not new. But I hope you enjoy it, relish it, and realize that it’s the reason we celebrate today. And I couldn’t have said it any better than this gentleman! Please follow the link below:

Happy 4th of July!

Further Proof On Climate Change.

It’s been a while since we talked about this, and I’m going to warn you right up front…this is probably the LONGEST blog I’ve ever done. But it’s important. It’s important because Michael Shellenberger, a noted environmentalist and global warming advocate for the past 30 and 20 years respectively has an announcement. Writing in http://www.environmentalprogress.org, Shellenberger titled his piece “On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare.”

It’s well worth the read, and if you’d rather read it on the site, here’s the link:

https://environmentalprogress.org/big-news/2020/6/29/on-behalf-of-environmentalists-i-apologize-for-the-climate-scare

Without further ado…Michael Shellenberger:

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

  • The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

  • Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

  • Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003

  • The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska

  • The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s

  • Netherlands became rich not poor while adapting to life below sea level

  • We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter

  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change

  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.

In reality, the above facts come from the best-available scientific studies, including those conducted by or accepted by the IPCC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and other leading scientific bodies.

Some people will, when they read this imagine that I’m some right-wing anti-environmentalist. I’m not. At 17, I lived in Nicaragua to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution. At 23 I raised money for Guatemalan women’s cooperatives. In my early 20s I lived in the semi-Amazon doing research with small farmers fighting land invasions. At 26 I helped expose poor conditions at Nike factories in Asia.

I became an environmentalist at 16 when I threw a fundraiser for Rainforest Action Network. At 27 I helped save the last unprotected ancient redwoods in California. In my 30s I advocated renewables and successfully helped persuade the Obama administration to invest $90 billion into them. Over the last few years I helped save enough nuclear plants from being replaced by fossil fuels to prevent a sharp increase in emissions

But until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an “existential” threat to human civilization, and called it a “crisis.”

But mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.

I even stood by as people in the White House and many in the news media tried to destroy the reputation and career of an outstanding scientist, good man, and friend of mine, Roger Pielke, Jr., a lifelong progressive Democrat and environmentalist who testified in favor of carbon regulations. Why did they do that? Because his research proves natural disasters aren’t getting worse.

But then, last year, things spiraled out of control.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “The world is going to end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change.” Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed “Climate Change Kills Children.”

The world’s most influential green journalist, Bill McKibben, called climate change the “greatest challenge humans have ever faced” and said it would “wipe out civilizations.”

Mainstream journalists reported, repeatedly, that the Amazon was “the lungs of the world,” and that deforestation was like a nuclear bomb going off.

As a result, half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct. And in January, one out of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.

Whether or not you have children you must see how wrong this is. I admit I may be sensitive because I have a teenage daughter. After we talked about the science she was reassured. But her friends are deeply misinformed and thus, understandably, frightened.

I thus decided I had to speak out. I knew that writing a few articles wouldn’t be enough. I needed a book to properly lay out all of the evidence.

 And so my formal apology for our fear-mongering comes in the form of my new book, Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.

It is based on two decades of research and three decades of environmental activism. At 400 pages, with 100 of them endnotes, Apocalypse Never covers climate change, deforestation, plastic waste, species extinction, industrialization, meat, nuclear energy, and renewables.

Some highlights from the book:

  • Factories and modern farming are the keys to human liberation and environmental progress

  • The most important thing for saving the environment is producing more food, particularly meat, on less land

  • The most important thing for reducing air pollution and carbon emissions is moving from wood to coal to petroleum to natural gas to uranium

  • 100% renewables would require increasing the land used for energy from today’s 0.5% to 50%

  • We should want cities, farms, and power plants to have higher, not lower, power densities

  • Vegetarianism reduces one’s emissions by less than 4%

  • Greenpeace didn’t save the whales, switching from whale oil to petroleum and palm oil did

  • “Free-range” beef would require 20 times more land and produce 300% more emissions

  • Greenpeace dogmatism worsened forest fragmentation of the Amazon

  • The colonialist approach to gorilla conservation in the Congo produced a backlash that may have resulted in the killing of 250 elephants

Why were we all so misled?

In the final three chapters of Apocalypse Never I expose the financial, political, and ideological motivations. Environmental groups have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars from fossil fuel interests. Groups motivated by anti-humanist beliefs forced the World Bank to stop trying to end poverty and instead make poverty “sustainable.” And status anxiety, depression, and hostility to modern civilization are behind much of the alarmism

Once you realize just how badly misinformed we have been, often by people with plainly unsavory or unhealthy motivations, it is hard not to feel duped.

Will Apocalypse Never make any difference? There are certainly reasons to doubt it.

The news media have been making apocalyptic pronouncements about climate change since the late 1980s, and do not seem disposed to stop.

The ideology behind environmental alarmsim — Malthusianism — has been repeatedly debunked for 200 years and yet is more powerful than ever.

But there are also reasons to believe that environmental alarmism will, if not come to an end, have diminishing cultural power.

The coronavirus pandemic is an actual crisis that puts the climate “crisis” into perspective. Even if you think we have overreacted, Covid-19 has killed nearly 500,000 people and shattered economies around the globe.

Scientific institutions including WHO and IPCC have undermined their credibility through the repeated politicization of science. Their future existence and relevance depends on new leadership and serious reform.

Facts still matter, and social media is allowing for a wider range of new and independent voices to outcompete alarmist environmental journalists at legacy publications.

Nations are reverting openly to self-interest and away from Malthusianism and neoliberalism, which is good for nuclear and bad for renewables.

The evidence is overwhelming that our high-energy civilization is better for people and nature than the low-energy civilization that climate alarmists would return us to.

The invitations from IPCC and Congress are signs of a growing openness to new thinking about climate change and the environment. Another one has been to the response to my book from climate scientists, conservationists, and environmental scholars. “Apocalypse Never is an extremely important book,” writes Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb. “This may be the most important book on the environment ever written,” says one of the fathers of modern climate science Tom Wigley.

“We environmentalists condemn those with antithetical views of being ignorant of science and susceptible to confirmation bias,” wrote the former head of The Nature Conservancy, Steve McCormick. “But too often we are guilty of the same.  Shellenberger offers ‘tough love:’ a challenge to entrenched orthodoxies and rigid, self-defeating mindsets.  Apocalypse Never serves up occasionally stinging, but always well-crafted, evidence-based points of view that will help develop the ‘mental muscle’ we need to envision and design not only a hopeful, but an attainable, future.”

That is all I hoped for in writing it. If you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll agree that it’s perhaps not as strange as it seems that a lifelong environmentalist, progressive, and climate activist felt the need to speak out against the alarmism.

I further hope that you’ll accept my apology.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

 

You Know We’re Back To Normal When…

Whew. It’s been since March 18th out here in the desert. That’s when our world changed. That’s when we all hunkered down from COVID-19. And our worlds all stopped. Well kind of. We found out in the meantime that Adam Schiff, and Samantha Powers, and Susan Rice, and John Brennan, and John Clapper all lied to the American people over the whole Russian collusion/impeachment thing. There never was anything going on, and nobody ever had proof.

It’s nice to know we’ve gotten through that and now we’re back to normal.

I say “normal” because now we’re back with a new Russian story. This one has Vladimir Putin paying the Taliban in Afghanistan to kill American soldiers. There’s basically, according to the New York Times, a bounty on our soldiers’ heads. And to make matters worse according to the Times, Donald Trump had been briefed about it and hadn’t called out the Russians on it.

So, let’s stop for a minute and analyze.

The New York Times has zero credibility when it comes to its investigative journalism. They’ve created more fiction than Mark Twain did in his entire lifetime! You can’t trust what they are saying. In fact, Trump has said that he and Mike Pence were never briefed on the story, because it was totally unverified. And from what I’m able to gather, there are records that would bare that out.

See, this is all apart of what has become known as the Pelosi Shuffle. Come up with a story, make it somewhat believable, and it may even be that a part of it is true. Spin it so that it makes your opponent look bad and leak it to a friendly news outlet like the New York Times or the Washington Post. Then, they can publish the story, attributing it to “unnamed sources”. Once the story gets out, you can then cite the story that you yourself leaked to the press and declare it true. It’s basically the political version of money-laundering.

And that’s where we are today. Someone in an intelligence agency somewhere who is a Trump hater, got a piece of information, thought it would be really neat to bring Trump down. They may or may not have called Pelosi or Schumer about it, but certainly called the Times and gave it to a reporter who hungrily ate it up, wrote the story without checking with the White House if Trump had been briefed on that, and then that allowed Pelosi and Democrats to cry that they need to start “an investigation.” And Chicken Little cried “The sky is falling”, yet again!

Somehow I don’t believe this one is going to get legs because who do the Democrats have that can chair the investigation that has any credibility? You know Schiff can’t do it, he lies more than he changes his underwear. Jerry Nadler isn’t smart enough to do it. Hell, he can’t even hold a regular hearing without making a mockery of it. Pelosi doesn’t have many other folks on the bench that could do anything that America could believe.

This is yet another attempt to try and deflect what’s coming. Democrats realize that when the Durham report is released this summer, there is going to be all sorts of hell to pay, and they are just trying to get us looking at the left hand, so we don’t realize the right hand is nailing Democrats to the wall in droves!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Can Biden Ride It Out?

I have received a TON of emails over the weekend regarding this topic so I thought I’d do a blog on it and give you my opinion instead of writing the same thing over about a hundred times. The overriding question is, “Can Joe Biden actually beat Donald Trump by not campaigning?”

The answer is probably not.

Overall, it’s going to take a feat for Biden to beat Trump. At some point America expects their political candidates to come forward and debate, and by all measures, these two will indeed get together at least three times, as will Mike Pence and whomever Biden ends up choosing. That means there will probably be up to six hours of Joe Biden being exposed to gaffes.

And, as we have seen over the past three months, just because he’s in his basement doesn’t mean he’s not going to be saying stupid things. He’s a gaffe machine. What is more important is, if any lack of mental acuity is shining through between now and November. If he stumbles and fumbles in debates and can’t recall words as he’s done in his speeches, then he’s going to expose himself on national TV to hundreds of millions of people. That’s not a smart move.

Look, there are going to be a bunch of Democrats that would vote for Joe Biden if he were dead. There are a bunch of Republicans that would vote for Donald Trump is HE were dead. And then you’ve got a small group of less than 10% in the middle that fluctuate. They are the ones the group is playing for.

I’m not really concerned about polls numbers at this point. For one thing, most of the polls are national polls, which isn’t how we elect a president. Second, when they DO have state-by-state polling, it’s closer now than it was when Hillary Clinton ran. And Joe Biden, while having some suitcases to lug around, doesn’t have near the baggage Hillary Clinton had. He should be winning by more, not less. Trump was unknown politically four years ago. Now everyone knows him. That can be good, that can be bad, but that veil has been lifted.

As we get closer to the election, as Trump is Trump on the campaign trail, you’re going to see several things happen. First, the polls will tighten. Oh, they may always show Joe Biden leading, just like they always showed Hillary leading. Isn’t that why Gallup got out of the presidential polling business in the first place? They couldn’t get it right because the respondents were lying to them! And you don’t think that’s happening today? Of course, it is.

Second, Trump is at his best when he’s in front of thousands of adoring fans all cheering for him. It’s his ego. And he feeds on that. He will again. Yes, Democrats may go on TikTok and make phony reservations, but ask yourself this…do the Republicans even NEED to go to those lengths to lower a Joe Biden rally turnout? What’s he looking at? 20, 30 people tops? He, like Hillary before him, doesn’t draw a big crowd, and won’t get the enthusiasm.

Finally, there’s the Durham report. Don’t think for a minute when this comes out and name names of people from the Democrat side in the Obama administration that cheated in order to get Trump, that’s not going to hurt the Democrats. It is. No, Biden’s name isn’t going to be in there, but he WAS a part of that administration!

There are two things that worry me about the upcoming election. First is voter fraud. Democrats are notorious at cheating. If they can’t win at the ballot box, they want to cheat (ie: making DC a state, Pelosi wanting to lower the voting age to 16, the whole illegal alien thing). No, you can’t trust a liberal any farther than you can throw one. Don’t believe me? Talk to Raul Castro or Nicolas Maduro!

The other thing that worries me is the Democrat based corruption. They are so filled with hatred toward Donald Trump, they have no problem with any ends justifying the means. Rather than do as Republicans did with Bobo Obama (though it was a killer, granted), and just ride it out, they want to do everything from consistently impeach him, to kill him. I think they realize there isn’t going to be a lot of enthusiasm for Joe Biden, so they have to do whatever they can to motivate people to get out to vote…either that or get AOC’s kids on TikTok to start filling out absentee ballots!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The Hypocrisy Of It All

Do you happen to remember maybe two weeks ago when the city council of Minneapolis, Minnesota cried and screamed that they need to “defund the police”? Do you remember last week when they unanimously voted to do that? Of course, it isn’t that simple. It has to go through committees, and the good people of Minneapolis aren’t going to be left in the lurch without any protection from bad guys anytime soon.

What I thought was funny, was what the city council of Minneapolis, Minnesota did this past week. Realizing they no longer had police protection from a mob, three of the city council folks went out, and with taxpayer money, they hired a private security firm to protect them. Not the city of Minneapolis, not the regular Joe Six Pack who pays their taxes, and votes for these snowflake socialist idiots. But they felt they needed protection from bad guys. Rather than hire police, they hired a private company to do the task for them. What did that cost? Well, the citizens of Minneapolis are now some $63,000 poorer because of the actions of Andrea Jenkins, Phillipe Cunningham, and Alondra Cano.

And what did the three of them have to say about all of it? Well, that’s what I was waiting for. When cornered about it, Jenkins said, “My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” OH! So, now we’re going to blame “white nationalists”? My…how racist, can you get?

As I recall from watching all of the looting and rioting in Minneapolis over the past month, there were a lot of folks screaming, and rioting, and looting, but most of them I wouldn’t have classified as “white nationalists”. Could it be that Jenkins was being singled out because she’s black? Or, could it be that she’s actually being singled out because she’s stupid? Now, both could be true, and both could be false, but my hunch is that the disagreement with her voting to ban the Minneapolis police department has very little to do with the color of her skin, and more to do with the fact she’s not the smartest bulb in the box.

And what strikes me in all of this is the inconsistency of it. After all, you have banned a police department, who, like all departments are there “To protect and serve”, and then when you get rid of them, or at the very least tell the world you have no faith in their ability to protect and serve you, you run to a private security firm because you’re upsetting people enough that they’re threatening you? What on earth did you think would happen when you voted that way?

This is just another example of why liberalism never works. It’s an inconsistent philosophy that never bears fruit, only inconsistency, and lies. And in the end, it’s the people that end up getting hurt. Ms. Jackson, I’m sure will end up ok in all of this. But the people of Minneapolis are going to have to deal with her stupidity, and that of her fellow city council folks for a long time to come. In the meantime, here’s a suggestion: Stay the hell away from Minneapolis, Minnesota unless YOU hire a private security firm.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
