'DNC, We Have a Problem'

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 9/7/2021 9:07:43 AM

Readers may remember the famous line from Apollo 13: "Houston, We Have a Problem." Maybe you remember the line in 1970 or from the movie in 1995. Either way it's become a line for the ages. My guess is that many Democrats are calling the DNC today and saying something similar about the Biden presidency. Unlike Astronaut Jim Lovell, the Democrats are not confident that the Biden ship is coming home safely. (snip) The new ABC News poll showed Biden’s approval dropped significantly this week among independent voters

Jim Lovell never said, "Houston, we have a problem." That was a line in the movie.

The Gullibles i know don’t see an issue. Apparently one of them believes that the US disabled all the gear we left behind - that’s what his “news source” is telling him. The Hive Mind repeats its messages such that each sock puppet tentacle appears to the victim as a separate source which confirms the others.

USA, we have a problem...and it's not Joe Biden or Kammie Harris, or the Commie's the UNIPARTY. Replace Joe and the UNIPARTY remains. Dump Kammie and the UNIPARTY nauseum. If you believe there was a fixed election in '20, chalk it up to the UNIPARTY...those six Republican legislatures that did nothing but certify Biden electors were a big help.

Joe Biden is no problem at all in the eyes of the Left. He delivers state propaganda with as authentic a representation of the Presidency as any other Hollywood production. The only people who have a problem are those who are obsessed with objective truth. They're still arguing about facts, while the Democrats run over them with an Orwellian propaganda machine serving the world's fastest growing religion -- progressivism. Progressivism marries the craven values of licentious sexuality with a national nanny state. You're going to have to do a lot better than shaming a stupid old man to beat that offering.

#2 Ok, for clarity, Lovell said: "Houston, we've had a problem".

Actually, it was Jack Swigert who transmitted first, saying, "OK Houston, we've had a problem here." Mission Control: "This is Houston, Say again, please." Lovell: "Houston, we've had a problem. We've had a main B bus undervolt." By attributing the quote to the movie instead of to historic fact, the author trivializes the point that at the DNC is broken, which is appropriate, I suppose.

The Power of Terrible Ideas 1 reply

While many have criticized the current enthusiasm for judging the past by the standards of the present (and condemning those past leaders who did not meet them), few have noted how many currently dominant beliefs are totally disconnected from reality and have a profoundly destructive impact. I propose to discuss two of them here: ideas about the nature of mental illness which have produced what Charles Krauthammer called “an army of broken souls foraging and freezing in the streets” and the conviction that our planet is in existential danger from human-induced climate change. The latter has led to a wholly unwarranted, hugely expensive crusade to eliminate fossil fuels.

Even before Ketanji Brown Jackson's extraordinary statement that she does not know what a woman is, I'd concluded that she's a dim bulb and, really, the judicial equivalent of Kamala Harris: an uninspiring Black woman who's floated effortlessly upward through affirmative action and fealty to leftism. I'd spent the day mentally writing an attack on her, only to see Tucker Carlson hold forth with an incendiary monologue that attacked her "I'm not a biologist" lunacy, the whole transgender madness that the left is advancing, and the real agenda of remaking society in an ugly way, especially through the death of free speech.

One of the things that makes life easy for true conservatives is that their principles are fixed so they don’t often get tripped up on their past stands. That’s not true for leftists, for whom the ends always justify the means, so the means can do a 180 in an instant. When one enterprise New York Times reporter tried to attack Candace Owens as a Russian stooge for repeating Russian propaganda about Ukraine, Owens politely, and helpfully (very helpfully) explained that all her information about Ukraine came from...the New York Times.

The paradigm of seeking a balance between the federal government and states began to cave during the Obama years. Now, under Biden, the abandonment of the federalism paradigm is picking up steam, and we see an attempt to sabotage federalism in favor of a vast federal bureaucracy and regulations and laws produced and upheld by a cadre of antisocial, power-mad elitists. The replacement is seen in a growing identity with authoritarian regimes (snip) This agenda is not mainly an agenda of countries, nor of states or provinces or other localities within countries. Rather, it is an approach to solving global issues by "stakeholders."

The Senate hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's Supreme Court nomination are not going well. Senate Judiciary Committee chair Dick Durbin is blocking the release of documents showing Brown Jackson's actual record as a judge, taking a page from the tactics of impeachment-obsessed Rep. Adam Schiff. That's how Democrats do hearings these days. According to John Solomon's Just The News: The Biden administration is keeping more than 48,000 pages of records about Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson from senators reviewing her nomination, including documents about her time at the U.S. Sentencing Commission that she has made a central part of her professional story.

Seems the idea of "free homes" for the homeless, touted as a panacea to end the problem, isn't quite working out the way its advocates said it would. In Oakland, at a concentrated community of "tiny homes," given out by the city to the homeless, the result was this, according to The Oaklandside: A fire Monday morning incinerated three tiny-home shelters at a city-run transitional-housing site at E. 12th Street and 2nd Avenue, across from Lake Merritt. Nobody was injured, according to authorities, but five people who were living in the scorched shelters were displaced. A fourth tiny-home was damaged as well.

We hear much these days about paradigm shifts and resets. (snip)Below the radar since 9/11, a digital hardware paradigm shift is underway also, out in the desert sands. Bluffdale, Utah is now ground zero for a mega-shift in the metadata trade.

Bear with me because I may just be exhibiting exceptional stupidity that can be cured by getting good information. Thus, I’m asking a question here, not stating any answers. My question is this: How can Biden get on his high horse to order China away from helping Russia in the current Russia-Ukraine conflict when we’re going all out to help Ukraine in the same conflict? The big news from yesterday was that Biden spent two hours on a conference call with China. During the call, he warned China that things would go badly if it helped Russia.

There are two types of hereditary aristocracy. One has a sense of noblesse oblige (i.e., it maintains its privileges by serving the people) and the other is parasitical, superficial, and disgusting. Our current federal politicians act like the second type. Exhibit A for the fact our political class needs to be voted out, is the writhingly bad performances from Biden and Pelosi at the annual St. Patrick’s Day lunch, along with a celebratory spirit at odds with America’s slow, seemingly inexorable collapse. The event was the annual Friends of Ireland St. Patrick’s Day luncheon in the Capitol.

Just five days after going to jail to begin his 150-day sentence, Jussie Smollett is a free man again. Considering what’s been happening in D.C. to people who, at most, trespassed, the whole Jussie saga has been disgusting and this is one more chapter to irritate or even enrage those who believe in the rule of law.

Yesterday’s drama between the Mo Brooks campaign in Alabama and Donald Trump is an interesting one, which sees some of what we’ve been hearing behind the scenes spilling out into the open. Yesterday, Trump rescinded his endorsement of Brooks, who is currently running for U.S. Senate in Alabama. Trump took aim at Brooks urging Republicans to move on from the 2020 stolen election and focus on winning future elections. Trump also accused Brooks of hiring NeverTrump consultants and changing his messaging in a way that made him plummet in the polls.

A Michigan city school board president was removed from her post after brutally attacking the board's Treasurer by slamming her head on a table and choking her at a meeting. Flint Community School Board President Danielle Green was relieved of her duties after she allegedly attacked Treasurer Laura McIntyre at the Finance Committee meeting at 10am Wednesday. Superintendent Kevelin Jones told M Live that the pair got into a disagreement over building new schools. At an emergency meeting later that day where Green was removed, McIntyre, sporting two black eyes, said there was 'no fight' leading up to the attack and the 'only person fighting' was Green.

President Joe Biden said Thursday that NATO would respond "in kind" if Russia uses weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine. "We will respond if he uses it," Biden said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The nature of the response depends on the nature of the use." The president spoke after a marathon of summit meetings with the European Union, G-7 partners and NATO allies. Biden also said he would support an effort to expel Russia from the G-20 group of economies. The president declined to say whether the United States has evidence that China has helped Russia evade sanctions or sold American high tech equipment to Russia

President Biden warned that the Russian invasion of Ukraine will likely cause food shortages in some parts of the world because both countries are major exporters of wheat, in remarks to reporters in Brussels on Wednesday. “It’s going to be real. The price of these sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia; it’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well, including European countries and our country as well,” Biden said. “Both Russia and Ukraine have been the breadbasket of Europe in terms of wheat, for example — just to give you one example.”

These Democrat-run hearings to potentially send Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court are something else. It's not just that Democrats have forgotten how they've treated now Justice Brett Kavanaugh while they go after Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) for daring to address Judge Jackson's record on sentencing sex offenders who prey on children, though that's certainly continued to be an issue. Concerningly, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who is chairing these hearings, has not been forthcoming about handing over the records to Republican members. (Tweet/Video)
