Democrats’ Cirque De Absurdite

Original Article

Posted By: RockyTCB, 6/27/2019 6:22:17 AM

When it was time to call the candidates on stage for Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate, did one of the moderators yell “send in the clowns?” If not, someone should have. What a bunch of buffoons. We don’t use that word lightly. One definition of buffoon is “a person who amuses others by ridiculous behavior.” That’s a description that fits every candidate on the stage. Each was hilariously solicitous and comically transparent. Almost before the game show applause had settled, Beto O’Rourke launched into a juvenile Spanish-language hustle that left Sen. Cory Booker wide-eyed and most everyone else rolling their eyes.

I watched until it got to Beto who started talking in Spanish. Couldn't take it any longer that that.

Anyone who could watch any of it without Trump tweeting it would have to have a strong stomach for all the nihilistic items mentioned in the article.

Here is my evaluation of the first ten. Take it for what it's worth. Gabbi should be cashiered out of the Army, and her officer commission revoked. She was, though, the prettiest girl on stage, beating out Corrine Booker. Gabbi also did the best job of concealing her herpes infection. Robert O'Rourke just let his herpes lesion stare at us. Delaney had the craziest eyes, followed by Booker and Ryan. Inslee seems to be from another planet. Every time Wilhelm Warren, Jr. spoke, I laughed. His policies in NYC are killing Gotham, and he wants to extend that to all of the United States, and his black lesbian wife will stand beside him. Amy Klobachar looked old, worn out. She forgot to remind us that her father drank himself to death because he was a veteran. Wilhelm Warren, Jr. told us that his father killed himself because he was a veteran. Squaw Warren looked frail and feeble. She likely has osteoporosis, and her body is shrinking. She is not well. Her head tremors are scary. And her speaking style is bad. And she told us, with a straight face, that her parents couldn't afford a 50 dollar college applicastion fee, even though they supported her three brothers in college. Who believes that bs? Bobby O'Rourke is silly, doing that hand jive he is famous for. And he never answers a question. He just talks. The moderators were generally inept, and except for Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow, didn't follow up on some crazy answers from the candidates. Jose was just plain pitiful, editorializing instead of asking questions. Did I miss anyone? Oh -- Crazy eyes Delaney, the purported moderate. He is toast. Soros wouldn't like him. And Castro, the hispanic who, with his twin brother, is taking Spanish lessons. And he believes that he can reverse immigration law by executive order. All hail Emperor Castro!! No borders Castro! No brains Castro, wimpiest of the wimps!

Debate 2:
The Party from Lovetron

Older folks remember Darryl Dawkins (aka Chocolate Thunder): a massive, free-spirited NBA megastar known for backboard-shattering dunks – and for claiming to be an alien from the planet Lovetron, where he practiced “Interplanetary Funkmanship.” No one quite knew what “Interplanetary Funkmanship” was. But it possibly related to stuffing candy bars on the bench, having little-to-no work ethic, and therefore taking large portions of games off in-between booming slams with nicknames such as “Yo Mama,” “In Your Face Disgrace,” and of course, “Sexophonic Turbo Delight.” In retrospect, the late Thunder would have made a perfect Democratic voter.

The Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 ruling on Department of Commerce v. New York is being characterized as nothing more serious than a temporary setback regarding President Trump’s wish to reinstate a citizenship question in the 2020 U.S. Census; the administration is expected to whip up a new rationale that the high court won’t consider “contrived” and get the question in. Unfortunately it is far worse than that, and Chief Justice John Roberts is giving further sign that he is yet another unpleasant surprise in GOP appointments to the highest level of the Judicial Branch, following in the footsteps of David Souter (Bush 41),

Stipulated: It’s off-the-chart madness that a male won a women’s NCAA national championship in track. That another male is seeking to participate in female weight-lifting competitions. Especially that men get the opportunity to pummel women in mixed martial arts. And then there are the Connecticut girls, excluded from New England track regionals when boys took the top two spots, who have brought a complaint under Title IX, which mandates equal participation for women in educational programs. Said one girl, Selina Soule: “There have been countless other female athletes (affected) in the state of Connecticut, as well as my entire indoor track team.

Before California slips into the ocean after a massive earthquake, as some predicted decades ago that it would, it looks like it will first become America’s very own undeveloped nation. California has endured its share of Old Testament calamities in the modern world. Yet at times it seems that it will surely succumb to disasters created by its own hand. There are real monsters loose in the streets. Rats, “an army” of them “millions strong,” reports KOMO News, have “overthrown” Los Angeles. Not long ago, “officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building,” said California Healthline. “And where there are rats,”

On the campaign trail in 1992, Bill Clinton famously stopped by a McDonald’s during a jog. Impromptu or not, it helped cement Clinton’s image as a regular guy who understands budget-minded middle-class families. Fast forward 27 years, and Democrats are once again making campaign stops at McDonald’s. But not to eat there. No, no, no. They are showing up to protest the fast-food chain for “corporate greed” and for not paying its workers a “living wage.” Kamala Harris, for example, was in Las Vegas marching in a protest and telling those assembled that “if we want to talk about these golden arches being a symbol of the best of America, well

The New York Times is crowing that President Trump is apparently indecisive, if not downright schizophrenic, in deciding how to respond to Iran’s shooting down a U.S. Navy surveillance drone in the strategically vital Strait of Hormuz on Wednesday. We are to believe the Commander-in-Chief ordered an attack, then abruptly belayed that order – hopelessly torn, presumably, between pleasing MAGA Country and appeasing hawkish National Security Adviser John Bolton. Thankfully, the Executive Branch of the federal government is still able to maintain secrecy in conducting defense policy, and the actual deliberations on which options the President is considering probably remain unknown to the nation’s self-styled Newspaper of Record.

Plastic is the eco-activists’ favored demon of the moment. Policymakers can’t get enough of banning plastic consumer items. But the bans are worse than useless. They are counterproductive. California leads the world in virtue signaling, having outlawed single-use plastics bags, as well as plastic straws. Plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and soap handed out by hotels might be the next items prohibited under California law, if lawmakers don’t ban plastics utensils first. Other states have rushed to enact bans, including Vermont, New York, and Hawaii (which has a de facto statewide ban due to multiple county bans). More cities than can be easily counted have either already

Can Iran be free? Or would that entail the U.S. waging another endless, pre-emptive war that Americans simply will not accept in the long term? Of the world’s two most frightening – and most unpredictable – rogue terrorist powers, North Korea and Iran, it had long been thought the one whose ruling elite were in possession of less rationality was Pyongyang. But after meeting with President Trump twice, North Korean absolute ruler Kim Jong-un is acting largely according to the sane-but-evil geopolitical logic his power-hungry 20th century totalitarian antecedents practiced.
Trump Just Revolutionized Health

Few have ever heard of “Health Reimbursement Accounts,” but they could fundamentally change the nation’s health care system — for the better — and destroy the Democrats’ case for socialized health care. Late last week, the Trump administration finalized rules that will let companies put money into tax-exempt HRAs that their employees could then used to buy an individual insurance plan on their own. Seems like no big deal, right? Except it will start to unravel a 77-year-old policy mistake that is largely responsible for many of the problems the health care system suffers today.

In case anyone might be uncertain, Bernie Sanders’ support for socialist health care is made clear by the many banners and signs demanding “Medicare for All” that appear at his rallies. He should hope his staff didn’t burn too much of his campaign budget on the message, though. If the other side plays it smart, one of his signature issues could slip away from him. “I happen to believe from the bottom of my heart, and I’ve believed this for my whole adult life, that health care is a human right and not a privilege,” Sanders said at a townhall in April, “and the best way to go forward in my

Try to imagine this scenario. A once-wealthy nation spirals downward over the course of several years into a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. Starvation and violence are rampant. The economy has collapsed. Millions have already fled. And all the while, an autocratic ruler acts with complete indifference, when he’s not trying to crush dissent and blame other countries for the misery he’s inflicting on his own. Under normal circumstances, there would be regular protests in Washington. Hollywood actors would be busy creating tear-jerker videos and making emotional award ceremony speeches. Musicians would be putting on global benefit concerts.

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

Sen. Cory Booker argued during the Democrat presidential debate on Wednesday that Americans need to talk more about transgender people. “We do not talk enough about trans-Americans, especially African American trans-Americans, and even incredibly high rates of murder right now,” he said. He compared the transgender rights struggles to the civil rights of black Americans, recalling a time when they were lynched in America. Booker also said that up to 30 percent of LGBT schoolchildren were afraid to go to school. He then argued that Democrats needed to do more than just support the Equality Act proposed in Congress. “We need to have a president that will fight to protect LGBTQ

The senator said he did not know if the proper setting for such an evaluation would be in the Congress or "whether it's another setting, I'm not sure."

A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. after he provided the crucial fifth vote in the Supreme Court decision heading off President Trump’s goal of including a question on citizenship on the 2020 census. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) split from members of their party Tuesday and requested more information on E. Jean Carroll’s claim that Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago. While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN. “It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

The Supreme Court ordered further proceedings in the dispute over a citizenship question on the 2020 census form Thursday, saying the Trump administration apparently concealed its true reason for adding the query. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the Court’s opinion, portions of which were unanimous. “It is rare to review a record as extensive as the one before us when evaluating informal agency action — and it should be,” Roberts wrote. “But having done so for the sufficient reasons we have explained, we cannot ignore the disconnect between the decision made and the explanation given.

Jackie O's daughter Caroline Kennedy is giving someone the opportunity to experience a slice of the family's unique, glamorous, and very closely-guarded life after putting her mother's sprawling Martha's Vineyard estate on the market for a staggering $65 million — four decades after the former first lady purchased it. The 340-acre property includes more than a mile of private Atlantic beachfront near Cape Cod, Massachusetts, as well as lush surrounding landscapes, all of which have been perfectly preserved by Kennedy and her family for the last 40 years. Onassis was first attracted to the oceanfront property in 1979,
