Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/9/2020 1:48:23 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday waxed hyperbolic about the 2020 presidential election, telling an audience that “civilization as we know it is at stake.”Pelosi made the remark during a speech at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, according to Fox News correspondent Rob DiRienzo. (Tweet) Pelosi’s speech also touched on other topics, including women in politics. “Just generally, I usually always cast my vote for a woman. I just do,” she told attendees.

FTA: “civilization as we know it is at stake.” What she means, civilization as we, liberal/progressive Democrats, know it is at stake. Would be the same when today's Democrats mention things like "our values", etc... they don't mean generally accepted values, but the values of today's liberal/progressive Democrat, which don't match the average person's values.

Get out of the way and let the greatest President of my lifetime make America greater and more prosperous again. Retire Pelosi, then prosecute her for sedition.

Re: Nasty Pelousy, No woman should vote for a man. No man should vote for a woman. No White should vote for a Black. No Black should vote for a White. Hispanics should vote only for Hispanics and no one else should vote for them. Youth should only vote for a young person. Older people should only vote for older people. Asians should vote only for Asians and no one else should vote for them. We are all trapped in our "identity" group and can never find common ground with others. Ideas are meaningless because only identity matters. Thinking is meaningless because you already know your identity and only need pick someone of your identity to support. There is such a "civilization" as Nancy envisions. It is called Hell. She should go there.

Pelosi's has overseen the descent of San Francisco, once one of America's most beautiful cities, to what it is today: thousands of homeless people sleeping everywhere, filthy streets and sidewalks littered with needles, human feces and urine, crime a constant. Lucky for Pelosi she's a Democrat, or the press would tie her to the City's decline and demand improvement.

Nancy misses The Good Old Days when Dem politicians could just steal and sell access to their office to the highest bidder with impunity and no one in the MSM said Boo. Imagine their fear and shock the night Trump was elected! The sight of Hillary's supporters crying at the Javit's Center that night was nothing compared to the cursing and tantrums in the DOJ/State Dept./IRS/NSA etc etc. Then they immediately began to craft the Russia collusion bullcrap.

I think Nancy might be right. If either of the Democrat candidates get elected then this county will have a real crisis on its hands. Joe Biden diminished mental capacity, due to his mild cognitive impairment, makes him unfit for office not to mention his quid pro quo criminal conduct with the Ukrainian government. Bernie Sanders is a full-fledged Marxist! In either case they have their sights set on destroying the free enterprise system and replacing it with the freebee enterprise system. I am convinced that the people supporting Democrats like Biden and Sanders are Millennials, Morons, Malcontents and Moochers!

Before our time in the Marine Corps, some of the equipment issued to Marines, specifically helmet covers, shelter halfs (1/2 of what some call a pup tent) and ponchos had green camouflage on one side and brown on the other. Rolling the shelter half to fit onto the haversack pack, folding the poncho, and fitting the helmet cover took some time. For the sake of uniformity, every Marine would have his equipment arranged in the same manner, with the two-colored camouflage items folded so only one color showed. This was especially important when it came to Marines in formation.

The majority whip, in particular, argued that if Biden were to best Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Michigan and a number of the other states holding their primaries on Tuesday, then the race was over and the DNC should intercede.

But nothing stops the VP speculation. There’s an added twist this year, which is the widespread expectation—and, in some quarters, demand—that the Democratic running mate will be a woman.

Dozens of people in Iran died after drinking industrial-strength alcohol amid rumors it would prevent them from contracting the coronavirus, according to reports Tuesday. The state-run Islamic Republic News Agency, or IRNA, reported Tuesday that 44 people had died from alcohol poisoning in the country after they "drank bootleg alcohol over rumors that it would be effective in treating coronavirus.” But the semi-independent Mehr News Agency reported a lower figure – at least 27 people dying in Iran from alcohol poisoning amid the coronavirus scare. Drinking, selling or buying alcohol has been outlawed in Iran for all citizens, except for some non-Muslim minorities, since the establishment of the Islmamic

Don’t panic, but do be afraid enough to be very, very cautious. The novel coronavirus epidemic almost certainly will get a lot worse before it ever gets “contained.” That’s my key takeaway from an interview Monday evening with John M.

The Democratic-led House and Senate passed measures that would undo an existing state law that protects the monuments and instead let local governments decide their fate. The bill’s passage marks the latest turn in Virginia’s long-running debate over how its history should be told in public spaces.(Snip) Virginia, a state that prides itself on its pivotal role in America’s early history, is home to more than 220 public memorials to the Confederacy, according to state officials. Among those are some of the nation’s most prominent

Everyone remembers how Starbucks responded to allegations of systemic racism by closing down for a whole day of penance (which meant company-wide sensitivity training) followed by the decision that they would open all their locations—and most especially their bathrooms—to anyone without requiring a product purchase. In other words, it was the equivalent of putting out signs saying, “Loitering Welcome Here.” As they say on the Interwebs, you’ll never guess what happened next! Actually, you don’t need to guess, but in case you’re curious, we have some social science on the question, in the form of a paper from two researchers at Boston College and one at the University of Texas,

RUSH: The Drive-By Media wants you to think that this massive stock market plunge is because of the coronavirus. Some of it is, but the vast majority of this has nothing to do with the coronavirus, absolutely nothing to do with the coronavirus. I am here to tell you what the massive market plunge is all about.(Snip)The coronavirus is being hyped beyond what it is. Rahm Emanuel, right here we have it, “Coronavirus Could Be ‘Devastating’ for Trump Reelection Bid.” Go to the audio sound bite roster. The Drive-By Media is back to weaponizing the coronavirus against the Trump administration, once again claiming this could provide an opening
