Keep it a secret, but remember that we’re supposed to be terrified of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Keep it a secret but remember that were supposed to be terrified of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The ascendancy of comrade Cortez will see a true debate between Economic Liberty and Socialistic Slavery – so we want the Left to keep her around.

In this day and age it’s hard to believe that anyone would still consider collectivism to be a viable governmental system. But once again the nation’s Left is going full socialist with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Never mind that these ideas are over 500 years old.  [First expressed  in the book ‘Utopia’ published in 1516 ] Or that we’re coming up on the Bicentennial of it’s first ‘Official’ failure  [ New Harmony Indiana, 1825 –1827, first use of the word Socialism]

For the delusional Left, it’s a perfectly functional system because it works in places that aren’t actually socialist.  This according the utterances of that paragon of intellectual thought, Joy Behar. Apparently, she thinks it works in the Scandinavian countries of “Sweden. Copenhagen.. Denmark Norway. Iceland.”  These being small and culturally homogenous that can afford to fund massive welfare systems because the US taxpayers foot the bill for their defense. Not to mention natural resources that can help monetize these system without putting the bite on their citizens. Well, the Left never lets the truth get in the way of their big lies, so why should this be any different?

The perfect opportunity to show the inferiority of Socialistic Slavery.

Now that they’ve gone full collectivist we can finally have that conversation over which system is superior. Better yet, which system actually works and which has been a complete failure.  The history of Socialistic Slavery is one of 2 centuries of failure to the tune of over 100 million dead.  That system is inevitably doomed since it defies logic and human nature. It’s a basic psychological fact that punishment will decrease a behaviour while rewards will increase a behaviour. Never mind that Leftist denials that taking someone’s property is a punishment or that it’s somehow collectively owned by society or some other such nonsense, it can never work no matter what you call it.

As Andrew Klavan has stated, the taking of someone’s hard earned property is in actuality taking their time and labour – a part of their life – that is called slavery. That is the fundamental flaw of socialism, that if one’s property is under claim by the government, there is no incentive to produce more and the system falls apart. It does not matter if someone tries to couch it as “Social Justice” or whatever, as Margaret Thatcher once observed, eventually you run out of other people’s money.

This also means that the powers that be will eventually have to crack down on those unwilling to live as slaves. Force will have to be applied to coerce the populace to produce so that it can be stolen and redistributed to buy loyalty. It also means that the people have to be ‘convinced’ that their best form of protection is to not have any.

We all have to play along so the national socialist Left keeps Comrade Cortez as their standard-bearer.

Now that she’s the face of the Left’s socialist national agenda, we need to play along in their little revolutionary terror drama whereby we’re supposed to be afraid of her and her little band of Reds. The comparisons are being made and the debates are being initiated putting the Left’s base ideology in the limelight, illustrating it’s rank inferiority. But just for fun, why not speculate for a moment on what the Left wanted to be our reaction to the sudden emergence of yet another socialist on the national stage.

What the Left wanted to be our reaction Comrade Cortez.

A spectre is haunting the States — the spectre of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a women with ideas that were new 5 Centuries ago. One can almost feel the fear, palpable as though it were a physical entity, striking terror into anyone who values Liberty. A nightmarish apparition haunting our dreams of keeping our guns and right of free-speech. Everyone stunned into silence by the unexpected emergence of the girl from the Bronx, Cheered on by a national socialist media that hitherto has never favoured one side or the other.

No one dare speak that which is unspoken, that these 500-year-old cutting edge ideas of socialism are inconceivable to behold. Their revolutionary import is too monstrous to contemplate. For no one has yet hit on the idea taxing people into the stone age to buy votes, the idea being incredibly inconceivable. We on the Pro-Liberty Right are shaking in our flats at the absolutely horrid idea that we will finally be taxed to pay our fair share.

We all sit huddled in our Billion dollar mansions fearing the day when equality will knock on the door and fairness will make sure the wealth goes to where it belongs – millennials who can no longer afford $13 Lattes or a PhD in the multidimensional mechanics of gender fluidity. No more will we be given that which we’ve earned, keeping the property we own, for it’s the people’s money now.

Our True Reaction* to the Left drop kicking the mask and going full Socialist.

[*Yes, they love that word for some reason, as though coming across ideas that have been repeated a thousand times over the several centuries is akin to Dracula seeing a cross for the first time.]
At first it was jubilation that the nation’s Left has at last admitted to which has been obvious for several decades – that they are dyed in the wool socialists.

With their coming out of the authoritarian closet we can finally compare their inferior Marxist theories mired in failure with something that actually works: Economic Liberty. The discussion beginning with how they are going to pay for all the free-stuff that is going to be handed out.

Not that they didn’t begin tiptoeing out of Stalin’s work-center a few months ago with their massive demands for gun confiscation during the Marx .. Oops.. ‘March for our lives’ demonstrations. But very much like the Mao Tse-tung’s Phase III Guerrilla warfare tactic of coming out to fight in the open, the Left has finally committed itself to pushing it’s woefully substandard ideas. In the past they’ve played the game of yes, we’re socialist.. no we’re not to keep from having to defend the blood soaked past of their horrid ideology of mass murder and oppression. But now with the elevation of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that’s all on the table. Its only now that some on the Left are realising their colossal mistake, with many recoiling at a system of governmental slavery of epic proportions.

However, something happened on the way to the donning of Che Cortez T-shirts. It became readily apparent that Comrade Cortez wasn’t ready for prime-time. She began – and continues to do so making absurd statements on the subjects of her graduate degree – economics and international relations.

Her latest being a cringe inducing video of her trying to explain how she’s going to pay for all of her largess, taking into consideration that we’re at least $21 trillion in the hole. So now the worry is that the debate that will finally bury socialism in the vault of economic logic won’t take place. This is why we need to act as though we are terrified of this woman and her 500-year-old ideas. Remember, we’re supposed to be afraid of her while we are really urging her on. The debate over the insane ideas of Socialistic-Slavery are beginning, with a disastrous fallout for the Left to be the result. This is exactly what we want, but don’t tell anyone.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that she’s at least 1/1024th Native American. Twitter responds appropriately.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that shes at least 11024th Native American Twitter responds appr

There’s a strategist in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s ear who thought it was a good idea to release results of a DNA test showing a likelihood that one of her very distant descendants was Native American. The advice taken. The results were predictable.

The test shows she is at most 1/32nd Native American if she is six generations from her Native American ancestor. That’s her best-case scenario. At worst, her ancestor was as far back as ten generations which would make her 1/1024th Native American. To put that into perspective, if she were to honor her heritage by engaging in 1/1024th of a four-hour Native American Sweat, she’d be in and out of the lodge in 14 seconds.

Elizabeth Warren releases results of DNA test on Native American ancesty

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2018/10/15/warren-addresses-native-american-issue/YEUaGzsefB0gPBe2AbmSVO/story.htmlThe inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.

Undergoing the test and releasing the results reveal how seriously Warren is taking the attacks from Trump, who has been able to effectively caricature and diminish his national foes via nicknames and conspiracy theories. Trump pushed then President Barack Obama into releasing the long form of his birth certificate to prove what most knew was already true: He was born in America.

This publicity stunt was designed to let everyone know she’s serious about running for President in 2020. She wanted to be able to call out President Trump on his promise to give $1,000,000 to charity if she could prove Native American heritage. He won’t pay, of course, which will get plenty of headlines calling him a deal-breaking scoundrel, but was it really if for her to be the focus of even more jokes on social media?

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter. You decide:

Katherine Timpf on fighting political correctness

National Review reporter and Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf often discusses political correctness. She talks about it so often that one might think it’s a subject she enjoys, but in reality it’s simply a problem she passionately wants to solve.

In American society, it is way too easy to offend. People do not want to hear that their perspectives are wrong. That’s apparently some form of violence. They don’t want to hear an opposing viewpoint. That’s allegedly a form of oppression. Many on the left feel entitled to express their opinions in any way they see fit and also to prevent others from sharing their opinions if there’s a difference in worldviews.

The hypocrisy of political correctness is thick.

As Timpf recently pointed out on National Review, it’s a problem that doesn’t have an easy solution, but trends are pointing to positive movement against the specter of political correctness.

Political Correctness: Study Finds 80 Percent of Americans Think It’s a Problem

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/10/political-correctness-problem-according-to-80-percent-of-people/I could go on for pages and pages, but you get the point: Writing about political correctness sometimes makes me feel as if everyone has gone mad, and I’m very glad to see that this doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, a strong majority of people apparently agrees with me. A strong majority believes that political correctness has gone too far, and probably would agree that we need to be careful to protect our ability to speak freely in this country.

That’s certainly encouraging, but it still doesn’t make me feel entirely better. After all, the small, PC-obsessed mob can sometimes be very powerful. Once it decides that someone or something is racist or sexist, that conclusion can carry a lot of weight. It can ruin careers and lives. It can remove perfectly good, innocuous words from acceptable speech, because even the people who might not see a problem with those words don’t want to risk being accused of racism or sexism for using them. The only answer is to keep fighting, to keep exposing and mocking such overreach when it occurs — and to take solace in the fact that so many people have awoken to its dangers.

Keep fighting the good fight, Ms. Timpf.

Reason: Socialism fails every time

Reason Socialism fails every time

If Socialism Actually Worked, the Left wouldn’t have to Lie about it.

John Stossel has a new video featuring Gloria Álvarez who knows the truth about Socialism. She passionately decimates all of the Left’s lies about what is truly organised evil.

Socialism has become cool in America, under the nice name “democratic socialism”.

Gloria Álvarez knows better, because she’s from Latin America and studied socialism there. She says: watch out! Socialism has a clear track record of wrecking every country that implements it.

Cuba tried socialism. Things got so bad that tens of thousands fled the island on dangerous, makeshift rafts. Others paid lots of money to be allowed to leave.

After Cuba, the next Latin American country to get totally immersed in socialism was Venezuela. For a while, things seemed to work okay thanks to the country’s oil wealth; Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world, and used to be the richest country in Latin America.

Celebrities like Michael Moore and Sean Penn visited Hugo Chavez and praised his socialism.

Venezuelans were happy, too. A former mayor in Venezuela’s capital city told Álvarez: “People were clapping so hard. They were like, ‘Oh, finally there is somebody here making social justice.'”

But eventually socialism led to a mismanagement of the economy that was so bad that money started to run out. The government just printed more, so much more that it led to million-percent inflation.

But some still defend socialism, saying that what happened there “isn’t real socialism.” Bernie Sanders says: “when I talk about Socialism I am not looking at Venezuela, I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark, like Sweden.”

But Denmark’s prime minister says that’s a mistake: “Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy,” he clarified.

In Scandinavian countries, government regulates business less than America’s government does. Scandinavian countries don’t even have a minimum wage.

Real socialism looks more like Cuba and Venezuela.

Álvarez hopes people look at socialism’s track record before implementing it anywhere else.

If the stakes weren’t so deadly serious, the Left’s absurd contradictions on this subject would be quite amusing. The video had several celebrities trying to claim that normal government functions are somehow ‘socialism’, without explaining how this is the case. Other Leftists will claim that certain socialist regimes weren’t actually socialist, but were really ‘Right-Wing’, again without explaining how this is the case. However, those supposedly non-socialist, ‘Right-Wing’ regimes had normal government functions – road, liberties etc. So by the lights of the first contention, wouldn’t they be socialist?

But let us put this as succinctly as possible:

If Socialism Actually worked:

The Left wouldn’t have to falsely claim that normal government functions are ‘socialism’.
The Left wouldn’t have to Lie about the definition of the word.
The Left wouldn’t have to pretend that Scandinavian countries are socialist.
The Left wouldn’t have to lie, claiming that totalitarian Socialist regimes are supposedly ‘rightwing’.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need ‘revolutionary terror’.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need Tanquetas’ or ‘Ballenas’ to keep the people in line.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need secret police and torture to suppress dissent.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need barbed wire or mine fields to keep people from leaving.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need concentration camps, gulags or ‘re-education’ camps.
If Socialism Actually worked, they wouldn’t need firing squads or as ‘Che Guevara’ put it, the ‘pedagogy of the wall’.

The Takeaway.

If the organised evil that is socialism [Or it’s 40+ alternative labels] didn’t defy basic human nature, being a functional system, there would be no reason for the nation’s Socialist-Left to Lie about it. If it had actually accomplished something useful – aside from 100+ Million dead – it’s proponents could simply sell it without all of the falsehoods and outright lies. Those who advocate for that collectivist system – while claiming they aren’t it’s advocates – could simply be honest about what they want to impose on the rest of us.

Compare this to the entirely workable – but never claiming to be perfect – system of economic Liberty.
Those of us who are advocates for freedom have no need to pretend that systems of economic Liberty are something else. We have no need to make false claims or pretend it something that it is not. We only need to sell it on it’s great achievements, something the advocates of socialism can never do.
