Green New Deal Would Spark
Yellow Vest-Style Protests

Real Clear Politics, by Mike Huckabee

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 3/19/2019 10:37:21 AM

Democrats are predicting a climate-change-fueled apocalypse 12 years from now, but 3,800 miles away in Paris, we’re seeing a preview of the real doomsday scenario that would result from radical policies such as the Green New Deal. For the 18th weekend in a row, violent protests broke out in the streets of one of Europe’s oldest cities as French citizens protested their government’s efforts to make them bear the costs of transitioning to clean energy. The mouvement des gilets jaunes, or Yellow Vests Movement, started in response to French President Emmanuel Macron’s decision to raise gas taxes

This article is one of the few which uses the expression about seeing the writing on the wall correctly (although the author appears to not realize it).

The key point is that, if you read the Book of Daniel, once you see the writing on the wall it is too late to avoid disaster.

I don’t think so, Gov. Huckabee. Implementation of the new communist manifesto would likely kick off guerrilla warefare.

No....the Green New Deal would spark food riots a black market the likes of which has never been seen before. A spike in crime that will make southside Chicago look like a sanctuary. Mass starvation, massive unemployment, mass homelessness on a scale the wpuld make the great depression look like an economic slowdown.

Disagree with #1 on one point. God had scheduled Nineva for destruction due to their sinful ways. After listening to God´s prophet informing them of this, they sent up such a cry of repentance to God that they actually changed God´s mind.

And there is the fellow hanging on the cross next to Jesus who repented at the last moment after talking with Jesus. It is never too late to come to God in repentance and remorse. I believe if the Uniparty continues to thwart Trump, we just might have our own yellow vest movement, not just because of the GND. People are sick of the foot dragging by DC.

I don´t think so. A yellow vest makes one a very visible target. I see a lot of people dressed in camo shooting and breaking things with big explosions but that´s just me.

The Electoral College and Slavery:
A Reality Check
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/25/2019 2:47:39     Post Reply
In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss to Donald Trump, we have been subjected to increasingly shrill calls from the left to abolish the Electoral College. Several Democratic presidential candidates, including Elizabeth Warren, have added their voices to this dissonant chorus. But their arguments suggest that the framers were wise to be wary of the mischief caused by unscrupulous politicians who play on the emotions of the voters. An exquisitely apposite example of such demagoguery is the claim that the Electoral College itself is a relic of slavery. This was recently repeated by Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) who brayed:

There was once a day, or at least Louis Brandeis said there was, when the states were the laboratory of democracy. I cannot personally confirm that rumor. Over the course of my own life, the Ffederal government has been a 24-hour laboratory for mandates on the states, respectively, or on the people. In the economic realm, as just one example, Washington confiscates much of our wealth and then tells us what to do with the rest. Washington has even larger appetites for the regulatory state, of course, which is now moving briskly beyond the boundaries

California executes a ´moratorium´
on the death penalty
Fox News, by Tammy Bruce    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/23/2019 10:26:22     Post Reply
During the past eight years, California voters have twice reiterated their support for the death penalty by defeating propositions seeking to overturn it.If anyone was confused about Californians’ understanding of the death penalty representing an important part of justice, in 2016 they even passed a proposition calling for the speeding up of executions by shortening the decades-long appeals process.In other words, Californians want the death penalty, and they want to it happen faster and more often.

Who anointed Beto O´Rourke to be

The Guardian, by Moira Donegan    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/22/2019 10:30:03     Post Reply
Beto O’Rourke, the former El Paso Congressman and failed Texas Senate candidate who announced his presidential run last Thursday, named his first son Ulysses. It’s a Latinized name for the hero, Odysseus, in the Homeric epic The Odyssey. This is typical of Beto: he likes heroes, and the stories of their discovery, trials, and triumphs. One of Beto’s favorite books is The Hero’s Journey, an overview by the literary theorist Joseph Campbell of Campbell’s theory of heroic myth. In Campbell’s work, the hero story, or “monomyth,” can be broken down into component parts,

Is This What Could Doom Elizabeth Warren?
Politico, by Jeff Greenfield    Original Article

Elizabeth Warren “is facing tough questions about fundraising and electability,” or so says The Associated Press. She is languishing in fifth place in a spate of polls of Democratic primary voters; Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke are dominating the money race; and her detailed and thoughtful position papers on health care, monopolies and tax policy threaten to define her as the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy Winner of 2020—the candidate who wins a prize from policy wonks and civic-minded pundits, but who never wins the nomination. There’s no single answer for Warren’s slow start.

SCOTUS Gives Trump a Big Win

On Tuesday the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration in Nielsen v. Preap, allowing the Department of Homeland Security to detain illegal aliens without bond while awaiting deportation for committing crimes within our borders. The decision reversed a ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. It was authored by Justice Samuel Alito, who was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts as well as Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh. The ruling involved a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of various resident aliens, including a few with Green Cards, convicted of crimes for which U.S. law mandates deportation.

Brexit’s in trouble because Britain’s
political class never wanted it
New York Post, by Theodore Dalrymple    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/19/2019 10:33:45     Post Reply
Theresa May’s crushing defeat in the House of Commons this week over her plan for Britain to leave the European Union was actually a great victory for her, provided that you make a simple assumption: that she and her colleagues never wanted Britain to leave the EU in the first place. A majority of the British legislature is, and always was, opposed to Brexit. Those legislators who agitated most vociferously for it declined, when the time came, to carry out the policy, leaving it to a woman already well known for her political maladroitness.

Democrats May Blow It in 2020
Wall Street Journal, by Ted Van Dyk    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/18/2019 10:41:42     Post Reply
In their fever to dispense with President Trump immediately, Democrats are losing sight of what Marxists called the “objective conditions” in the country and the fundamentals of presidential politics. Unless they take care, they will forfeit their chance to regain the White House in 2020 and could return congressional control to Republicans as well. Begin with the objective conditions. The first is continuing public disenchantment with political, media, financial and cultural establishments. It is this disenchantment that brought Mr. Trump to the White House in the first place

Socialism: An Old Dogma
With No New Tricks
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/18/2019 5:38:27     Post Reply
When people like Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez extol the virtues of socialism it reminds me of Dorothy Parker’s pun, “You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks.” Parker’s quip had nothing to do with politics, of course. It was about religion. This, ironically, renders it uniquely applicable to the recent resurgence of public interest in this hoary collectivist doctrine. The belief that replacing free market capitalism with socialism would result in a more equitable society requires a leap of faith. Unlike belief in Christianity or Judaism, for example, it requires blind faith combined with illiteracy in history and economics.

He hasn’t earned it. I’ve distilled it down. And that’s basically the refrain I’ve heard from dozens of Latinos who — unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto. They’re concerned that Robert Francis O’Rourke, who this week joined an already-crowded field of 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, is trying to put one over on Latinos by tricking them into thinking he’s one of them. Or, at the very least, they think that his strategy,

   

 



 
Trump´s Most Daunting Task:
Educating on Socialism
PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/17/2019 11:05:04     Post Reply
Amidst the welter of good and bad news we are assaulted with every day, by far the most dangerous long-term are the new polls showing America´s youth tilting significantly toward socialism. Not surprisingly, these same young people haven´t the slightest idea of what socialism really is, its history or what it entails, which is suicidal for them more than anyone else. They are the ones who will suffer most if the USA turns into Venezuela. Because of a sclerotic leftwing education system, our youth have been indoctrinated in a simple-minded version of socialism for decades without knowing it.

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism, told Muslims in a speech Saturday to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in defense of their rights. As hundreds of pro-Israel protesters rallied outside, Ms. Omar said U.S. Muslims should confront discrimination in her keynote speech at a fundraiser hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles in Woodland Hills, California. “So, to me, I say raise hell. Make people uncomfortable,” Ms. Omar said as the crowd cheered. “Because here’s the truth, here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort

NEW YORK — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand on Sunday called President Donald Trump a "coward" who "punches down" and says that he is "tearing apart the moral fabric of our country." Gillibrand also urged the full release of special counsel Robert Mueller´s report in the Russia investigation, stressing that "nobody in this country, not even the president, is above the law, or immune from accountability." Attorney General William Barr was expected to release a summary of principal conclusions as soon as Sunday, but Democrats want to see the full details.

Former CIA chief John O. Brennan now says his months of attacks on President Trump may have been based on “bad information.” One of the president’s harshest critics had a muted tone on Monday as he discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” No evidence was found to support the claim that Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia. “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Mr. Brennan told host Joe Scarborough.

It hasn’t come from the press. It’s come from the President of the United States and those around him,” Bernstein said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” hosted by Brian Stelter.

Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the "principal conclusions" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s completed Russia probe in a bombshell four-page letter to Capitol Hill lawmakers, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump´s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia -- "despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign." Mueller´s team specifically looked into two Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election -- first, the work by a Russian organization, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), to "conduct disinformation and social media operations"

Is this really from today, not from the campaign trail in Texas last year? I can’t believe any Democrat would have the stones to double down on collusion the morning after we find out that not only won’t Trump be indicted for conspiring with Russia, none of his inner circle will either.(tweet)Yes, right, we haven’t seen the report yet and so it’s possible that Mueller believes Trump conspired with Russia but declined to indict him due to the DOJ policy that prevents sitting presidents from being formally charged.

We´ll try everything else first, but if we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information,” Nadler said. When asked how long he would give the Justice Department

In the opening pages of Michelle Obama’s memoir “Becoming,” she says something that might have sounded pretty provocative when she started writing the book in the days after she and her husband, former President Barack Obama, moved out of the White House. “When you’re first lady, America shows itself to you in its extremes.” (Snip) But one reason she’s been so effective at going high when the crudest and most retrograde among us decide to go low is that she’s so gifted at not surrendering to her own extremes. That she was able to draw some 18,000 people from so
