Discussion in 'Φ v.3 The GREAT AWAKENING' started by Rose, Oct 3, 2018.
As Mayor of New York City, billionaire Michael Bloomberg was the quintessential statist.
Even though he ran as Republican, the ‘stop and frisker’ was more of a neocon than libertarian. He’s also very pro-abortion, pro illegal immigration, and pro-taxes. He’s known for creating a lot of rules and regulations. He wanted to ban salt at restaurants and Big Gulp sodas at fast food restaurants. He is for gun control and had banned smoking in public places. Bloomberg said government was ‘a force for good.’ Notice the word ‘force.’ Government is force, and like many tyrants, Bloomberg gets to decide what is good for us. The billionaire switched parties and became a Democrat, which is more in alignment with his views. That is, they all love a big, bloated, and meddlesome government that forces citizens to do their bidding.
His main passion doing something about ‘climate change.’ Washington Governor Jay Inslee also made that the number 1 priority in his campaign. He’s already dropped out. Americans don’t want globalism or a carbon tax.
We don’t want to be forced to buy electric cars and have cheap and clean-burning coal plants shut down. Bloomberg is trying to drum up fear—doom and gloom—in order to get action on ‘climate change.’ He wants the Green New Deal or some variation on that disaster. Most Americans know the climate changes—it’s called weather. They don’t want to lose their jobs or pay a carbon tax. They are too busy struggling to make ends meet to make it a top issue in their lives. Bloomberg doesn’t have that problem—he’s worth comfortable $58 billion dollars. He wants his planet saved! He wants his populace controlled!
Bloomberg saw Donald Trump a fellow billionaire become president against all odds. Perhaps he thought Trump won because he had a lot of campaign money at his disposal. Not so. Hillary outspent Trump 2 to 1 and still lost. Bloomberg has Trump Derangement Syndrome. Here’s one of his quotes:
“We cannot afford four more years of President Trump’s reckless and unethical actions. He represents an existential threat to our country and our values. If he wins another term in office, we may never recover from the damage.”
Bloomberg may not realize it, but Trump didn’t win because he was a billionaire. He won because he offered Americans a chance to get our Republic back. It was stolen by the Deep State and they are a very corrupt lot. They’re the swamp that Trump has promised to drain. Bloomberg is part of that swamp and that’s why he will lose.
KEEP ON PUNCHING!
I watched the latest Democratic debate the other night. It was dull and predictable.
Many expected Joe Biden to trip over his words again and he didn’t disappoint. There were at least three major gaffes from the former Vice President, but to me, the worst one occurred when he said he was backing a program against domestic violence.
Biden said “No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger, other than self-defense and that rarely ever occurs,” he said. “So we have to just change the culture. Period.” Biden then added, “And keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it,” making matching punching motions with his fist.
A small wave of nervous laughter ensued and Biden didn’t even know why.
Biden has always been a gaffe machine and he’s gotten worse with age. No wonder Obama didn’t endorse his candidacy. Obama wants to protect his perceived good reputation and he doesn’t want to be tied to Biden’s Ukraine scandal, which could and should blow up to epic proportions.
We all have our moments of confusion. We all make mistakes. I often say the wrong things and remember past happenings incorrectly, but I’m not running for president. A candidate running for the highest office needs to have very sharp mental capabilities, social awareness, and a sense of appropriateness. Sleepy, sniffing Joe often doesn’t even know which state he’s in. He’s pushing 80 years old and he’s starting to get that ‘old man voice.’ He will not improve if he gets elected president.
Joe doesn’t deserve to be president. Instead, he should retire. In prison.
BYE BYE BETO
Beto O’Rourke has dropped out of the presidential race. He ran for a Senate seat in Texas against Ted Cruz and lost. Apparently he thought the notoriety he received during that race would carry over toward a presidential one. It didn’t.
He pitched the usual climate change nonsense, outright gun bans, a Green New Deal, and more abortion. He wanted to tax Christian churches if they refuse to support gay marriage. In short, he wanted to strip away more liberty from Americans while subjecting them to higher taxes, more government tyranny, and crime.
He said he was born to be president (or some such statement), but instead he’s headed into the sunset. He’s a hand waving, virtue signaling beta male who deserves his place in the dustbin of history.
Hasta la vista, Señor Beto.
Beto came across as a spoiled and foolish man who wanted to merge the US with Mexico. That is, he wanted a complete erasure of our southern border along with free stuff to anyone who wandered north into our country. He had a fake Spanish nickname and often spoke in Spanish to prove his allegiance to Mexico.
ELIZABETH WARREN THE “CRAZY TRAIN”
The 2020 Democrat lineup is weak.
Quid Pro Joe Biden is too old, out of touch, and corrupt.
Bernie Sanders is an angry old commie with health problems.
This makes Elizabeth Warren, aka ‘Pocahontas,’ the Democrat’s front-runner.
She claims to be ‘capitalist to the bone’ and more of a centrist. Some call her a Hillary Clinton version 2.0. Like Hillary, she’s oblivious to her own political hypocrisy. She claims she’s for the little person and is not accepting donations from big banks and corporations, who she says she will break up. This is a ruse. Once nominated, she said she would again receive donations from big banks and corporations—as she has in the past.
Warren claims to be the ‘best presidential candidate money can’t buy,’ but she’s thoroughly bought out already. Her campaign treasurer is the veteran money raiser, Paul Egerman who is well connected to PACs and billionaires, including George Soros. In fact, Soros funded Warren’s Senate bid.
Warren lied about getting fired when she got pregnant.
She lied about being a Native American.
She used that status to further her career at Harvard.
Harvard is already a money pit swamp in and of itself and it spews corruption. Warren is part of that corrupt swamp. Warren is a shameless liar who could give Hillary a run for her money in that department.
Warren claims she will help bring about a middle class renaissance in America, but she’s a big ‘climate change’ pusher and New Green Deal advocate. That means the destruction of jobs and our economy. It’s a socialist pipe dream design to wreck America—and the middle class in particular. Most Americans are too busy living paycheck to paycheck to worry about the manufactured fear that is climate change. Warren will force it upon us.
Warren is a tyrannical statist and globalist who thinks more government control is the answer to all problems. Grab the guns. Control medical care and make it all free—even to illegal immigrants. Open borders and free stuff always ends in disaster. She doesn’t seem to realize this, or if she does, she welcomes such a disaster.
She wants to help everyone—except the unborn, of course. She wants babies aborted. She actually compared abortion with getting a tonsillectomy. To her, unborn humans are meaningless and annoying blobs of matter to be cut out. That’s why she calls it ‘women’s health care.’ The child is murdered to make the woman healthy.
Warren is a dangerous, lying monster who is part of the profoundly corrupt swamp. If Hillary doesn’t take over, Pocahontas will get drubbed by Trump.
Biden has been well entrenched in the DC swamp for years and it appears he’s used that swampy experience to help his son make millions. Political cartoon by A.F. Branco ©2019.
BEN AND TINA WATCHED THE DEMOCRAT DEBATES SO YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO
We at GrrrGraphics are glad the Democratic debates are over—for now. They caused us to laugh out loud, scoff in disgust, and shake our heads in disbelief.
We heard a lot of crazy talk and grandiose plans for America’s future that involved spending countless trillions of dollars. The so-called moderates in the debates were drowned out by the socialists, whose solutions invariably involve free stuff. Free college education and debt forgiveness. Free health care. Reparations. Free stuff for those poor families pouring over our open borders. The far left consider the U.S. government to be God. They think it’s there to solve all problems and human suffering—no matter where it occurs in the world. All the sufferers have to do is come here and be blessed by an all-giving government.
There were a few amusing moments. Bernie Sanders sounded like a crotchety old man who wants kids off of his socialist lawn. He substituted outright yelling for reasoned debate. Buttigieg, who sported a smashed bug on his forehead, equated paying taxes with paying for health insurance. His statement was a false equivalency. Government is very inefficient and since money can be printed up willy nilly, bureaucracies will pay higher and higher prices. After all, it’s someone else’s money. Free health care means long lines because there is always over whelming demand for free stuff. The quality of the “free stuff” always declines. Anyone in the world can fill the emergency rooms and they will. It will end up meaning very poor quality health care.
Buttigieg also put down Christians—telling them they’re sinners if they don’t support a $15 minimum wage. The problem with that is jobs will go away as a result—millions of them. But heck, we can’t expect a Rhodes scholar to think these things through.
We heard Marianne Williamson talk about ‘dark psychic forces’ and the usual new age yadda yadda yadda. At least she stood out. Jay Inslee kept harping about climate change and even said our houses were burning down RIGHT NOW! What is the solution to this end-of-the-world problem? Why, the Green New Deal, of course. More taxes, globalist rules and regulations and no car travel. Presumably Inslee would allow exemptions for China, one of the world’s biggest polluters. Maybe he’s afraid to include China out of fear of being called a racist. The ‘R’ word is more fearful than climate change.
Then we saw lesser candidates try to take down the aging king of the Capitol Hill, Biden. There were some interesting verbal boxing matches between Biden, Booker, and Harris. Biden survived.
I didn’t include the other frontrunner, Elizabeth Warren. The hectoring schoolteacher came across shriller than feisty and more annoying than likable. Listening to her is like getting slapped on the hand by a ruler.
All of them insulted our president at every turn. Inslee called Trump a ‘white nationalist.’ Trump is white and believes in America first, which makes him a nationalist. To the loopy Democrats, it means he’s Hitler. Shame on Don Lemon for framing his questions with insults aimed at the president. He made his slurs sound like facts. Lemon is neither a moderator nor a journalist.
Lemon’s just another Democrat with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Most of the Democratic candidates are now pushing for ‘reparations.’ They must know it’s all ludicrous, impractical, and unfair, but it’s another way to divide the country.
Reparations were paid in blood when over 600,000 men died fighting the Civil War. America has already righted the wrong that was slavery.
The reparation talk isn’t really what it seems, though. It’s simply about the Socialist Democrats seizing on any issue that will raise our taxes while making more people dependent on government.
This is why they want open borders. If anyone can come here and get free stuff and vote, they will vote away our Republic. It’s also why the left pushes so hard for ‘climate change.’ It means destroying our industrial base while slapping taxes on citizens to fix the problem.
It’s why Obama greatly weakened our military and introduced the ‘trans’ fad and divide the sexes and family structure. It’s about dividing and conquering and the destruction of America—with the end result being their evil socialism. President Trump said he was an America-first nationalist. The socialists hate national identity. They hate nationalism.
They don’t want us coming together. We are already a divided nation and reparations will only widen the gulf. Our divided nation is already fighting a second civil war, albeit it cold one. We don’t need to turn it into a hot one.
A LOT OF J0E
It’s hard to keep track of all the Democrats now running for president, but Joe Biden leads in the polls.
Biden is career politician who aligns well with the Clintons, the Bushes, and Obama. For now, he’s the Deep State’s choice to lead our country. He doesn’t stand much of a chance. He turns 77 in November and he does not inspire his base. His baggage far outweighs his positive aspects, whatever those might be.
“Creepy Joe” is a serial groper. He loves to grab women from behind and sniff their hair. He even does this with little girls. On public stages he should be able to control himself, especially by now, but he can’t—and that’s not a good sign.
President Trump created a meme for Biden: “Sleepy Joe.” It’s a play on both his age and his lackluster style of campaigning. He’s sleepwalking through his campaign. He could also be called “Sloppy Joe” for his careless and corrupt dealings with Ukraine and China—in order to benefit his disgraced son, Hunter. Another knick name might be‘Flip Floppy Joe.’ Like a cynical weathervane, he moves in whatever direction he thinks might attract the most voters, regardless of the issue.
If he gets the nomination, he’ll end up being ‘Weepy Joe’ because he stands no chance against Trump. Many Democrats already know this. Hillary knows it, too. She may be allowing the crowded field to come across as the bumbling, losing fools that they are. In dramatic fashion, she will then step in as the only viable candidate able to ’save’ the Democrats. Yes, Hillary will run again. She confuses her corruption with competence. She has done her best to stay relevant and in the news. Does anyone seriously think she’ll bow out of politics gracefully? She has no grace. She couldn’t even give a concession speech—she sent Podesta to do that.

Biden is biding time for Hillary, who is the one who owns and controls the Democrat Party. She’s using Sleepy Joe as her placeholder. It’s probably why he’s putting out only a perfunctory effort.

“ELECTORAL COLLEGE SHENANIGANS”
More Democrats are calling for the abolition of the Electoral College in favor of electing presidents directly from the country’s popular vote.
After all, Hillary Clinton garnered more popular votes than Trump, therefore they think she should have been president.
The Electoral College is one of those checks and balances that helps keep our Republic healthy. We are the United States and states and the citizens residing within them should have some power and control over their own fate.
We saw how those who controlled the Democrat Party rigged primaries in favor of Hillary. She basically bought out a party that was financially struggling. They did as they were told. Hillary loves to rig things in her favor either by extortion, bribery, or even murder. She got debate answers in advance. She had total control of corporate media. She had billions of dollars to buy her election.
Those who voted for Bernie Sanders were marginalized—their votes didn’t count for much. ‘Super delegates’ within Hillary’s power structure rigged the vote in her favor. Bernie Sanders meekly paid obeisance to Hillary and he was rewarded with a half million-dollar beachfront summer home. There were many who were rightfully outraged by the primary thefts and after Hillary lost to Trump it forced their party to make changes. The Super Delegates currently don’t have as much power and sway, but that could easily change should Hillary decide to run once again.
The Democrats won’t stop at the Electoral College.
They’re angry that small states have two senators—the same as very populous blue states. Why should North Dakota have two senators when they have a very small population? California has many times the people—shouldn’t they have more senators than just a measly two? Bill Maher has questioned this sort of thing repeatedly, along with the need to eliminate the Electoral College. It’s now become another steady drumbeat among Democrats. After all, they know big cities will generally cast ballots for Democrats. Big city folk tend to learn toward the left and socialism. A lot of peer pressure and political correctness in big cities help keep everyone in line and on the same page. It’s easier to sway them with propaganda. It’s easier to rig elections there with the help of illegal voting.
If the big blue cities get their way, their candidate for president will always win. The flyover red states will become irrelevant. The presidents elected by big blue cities will help bring about the death of our Republic. The big city progressives will make sure that tent cities, drug addiction, and government addiction are spread throughout what’s left of the country.
To protect our Republic, we need to keep the Electoral College system intact. It’s a pillar that protects us from ‘Democracy,’ and socialism, which always ends in tyranny.
It appears that all the Democrat presidential candidates have gone mad and have moved way over to the extreme left. Political Cartoon by A.F. Branco ©2019.
