Why do we even listen to Leftists

The Green New Deal is just the latest reason why those who bespeak nonsense should be ignored.

There are times when it’s truly mind-boggling that we even listen to the self-righteous pontifications of the Left. After all, these are based on a bizarre concept that somehow there is a fixed amount of wealth and that it is under the collective authority of society. That people incapable of running something other than a campaign for political office somehow know how to begin and grow a complex business or develop new technologies. Perhaps it’s a secret part of the swearing in of every politician whereby the knowledge of the universe is bestowed upon them, making them an instant expert in every field imaginable.

That would be the only explanation of how those people think that they can call into existence that which is physically impossible with the wave of a pen or a phone. Or believe that a concept that has failed for 400 years will somehow suddenly work under their auspices. Thomas Sowell once stated that “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” The addendum to this would be that anyone who thinks of doing something beyond naming a new post office with a supercilious resolution shouldn’t be in control of anything.

The Green New Deal is just the latest expression of the Left’s absurd ideas

Many have had a lot of fun ripping apart the extreme aspects of the Green New Deal, and rightfully so. From the trenchant analysis from our own Ted Noel, MD  to the pointing out of it’s inherent magical thinking and inane references to ‘cow farts’ as well as the scrapping of our modern transportation system. It’s to the point that going after this resolution from everyone’s favourite socialist is akin to firing conical projectiles at aquatic creatures within the confines of a substantially cylindrical container of water.

However, in a larger sense all of that should surprise no one. All of these, including the more mundane aspects are predicated on the absurd concept of socialism. That somehow the forcible taking of property from the productive and handing it out to the unproductive will somehow redound positively to society. This flies in the face of basic psychology, punishing some for being productive while rewarding those who produce nothing with destroy the economy, no matter how many invocations to unicorn emanations or pixie dust power that are made. The proof being 400 years of failure of the very same ideas with an accompanying butcher’s bill ranging over the 100 million mark.

Socialism has to parasitically feed off the far superior systems of Economic Liberty

Since it needs a healthy host born of the Economic Liberty of free enterprise, the advocates of this system of organised theft have to make it seem like it will turn out better than the status quo based on freedom. Thus they have to sell it with a raft of farcical promises of free health care, free housing, free college, even to the point of promising a free-living. They sort of gloss over the fact that all of this largess will be at the cost of everyone’s Liberty. Perpetuating the fraud with their self-labeling as ‘Liberals’.

The essential indicator that this is all a swindle of epic proportions is that they can never seem to specify the source of other people’s money to fund all of their wonderful projects. They make used car salesmen seem honest by comparison, given that at least they have something tangible to sell. Socialists at best only have a few slogans and empty promises in selling their snake oil. Never mind how they are going to pay for all the goodies.

A long line of failed promises of perfection that have never come to fruition

The absurd and fraudulent concept of socialism is always sold as a wondrous ideal, just out of reach. It’s the false promise of an ‘Ideal state’ or perfect Utopia that can be attained if only a certain set of Leftists are put in charge of everyone else. A perfect ‘heaven on earth’ or ‘worker’s paradise’ because the purveyors of these ideas know exactly how to run things so everything is ‘fair’ and ‘equal’. It will be ‘The wonderful world of next Tuesday’ as it is called on ‘The People’s Cube’.

Never mind that this is all based on ideas that don’t make sense in the real world. Or that it soon takes a version of the Cheka, Gestapo or in the latest incarnation the Fuerzas de Acciones Especiales (FAES) in the wondrous paradise of Venezuela to arrest, torture and kill people when they notice the promises aren’t coming forth.

The Takeaway

The Green New Deal is just the latest emanation from the Left that demonstrates that their absurd and failed ideas should be rejected. It shows that they shouldn’t even sell used cars much less be in a place to control society.

Granted, there is the sheer entertained value in looking at their ideas of a society based on unicorn farts and pixie dust power. Unfortunately there are those who can be taken in by this colossal fraud. Those who may actually think that it’s perfectly reasonable to rebuild every structure or no longer have air travel. Not to mention that this something for nothing scam that has no visible means of support.

The Green New Deal should be an object lesson as to why the National Socialist-Left should be ignored and their absurd ideology relegated to the ash heap of history.

Jussie Smollett reveals the left’s greatest weakness

Jussie Smollett reveals the lefts greatest weakness

Conservatives may have a hard time isolating one thing that can be considered the greatest weakness of the left. Some would say they suffer from intellectual weakness, but we’ve seen too many truly intelligent leftists over the years. Others would say it’s their surface-level morality. This may be true, as most leftists base their morals on a surface level examination rather than digging deeper into issues. This is why many of them think the welfare state must grow instead of shrink.

To me, their biggest weakness is that they’re so gullible. They fall for every perceived injustice regardless of how insane the accusation. If MAGA-folks can be blamed for something, the left tends to believe it. After all, it’s easier for them to believe in the evil of the right than to believe card-carrying progressives like Nathan Phillips, Brenda Snipes, or Jussie Smollett are hiding the truth.

This site is 100% crowdfunded by readers like YOU. Please consider donating and keeping the right side of news going strong.

After last month’s report that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was assaulted by two white men who beat him, splashed bleach on him, tied a noose around his neck, and told him “this is MAGA country,” the rebukes from the left against the “MAGA bigots” was swift and harsh. While many on the right were skeptical that two men in masks were out late at night in -20 degree temperatures seeking out a black, gay celebrity to attack, there seemed to be zero skepticism from some of the left’s most outspoken folks.

As fate would have it, this appears to be a hoax crime designed to draw sympathy for the actor:

Jussie Smollett Reportedly Paid Brothers to Stage ‘Attack’

https://www.tmz.com/2019/02/16/jussie-smollett-attack-brothers-rope-suspect-staged/Jussie Smollett has turned from a presumed victim to suspect in the criminal investigation into the alleged racist, homophobic attack, and sources say there is mounting evidence the 2 brothers who were arrested and subsequently released were acting at Jussie’s behest and reportedly paid.

Our sources say the brothers — both of whom worked on the “Empire” set — “completely cooperated” with Chicago cops during their interrogation over the last few days.

One law enforcement source tells TMZ at least one of the brothers turned over his phone and there is a call between him and Jussie in the vicinity of the “attack,” but before it happened.

The left’s desire to believe anything that paints Trump supporters in a negative light blinds them to obvious falsehoods. Jussie Smollett’s story was difficult for rational people to believe, but hatred for MAGA makes otherwise rational people unhinged and gullible.

Why we need to believe Ephesians 6:12 today, perhaps more than ever before

Ephesians 6:12

The idea of doing a podcast has been weighing on me lately. It’s not really even a long-term itch; after it reached my mind just a few days ago, that turned into a very stout and concentrated calling that hit my heart like a ton of bricks. It went from not being a consideration to being something I absolutely had to do in less than a week.

The first episode is done and we’re ready for people to hear it and give feedback.

This podcast’s primary topic is going to be Ephesians 6:12. If you’re not familiar with the verse, you may wonder how we intend to do an enire sustained series of podcasts surrounding a single verse. Upon reading it, you should realize that what it suggests and the topics it encompasses could easily be turned into a daily show if necessary.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

At some point, we will be moving this and other episodes we do to a true podcast hosting site. We’ll also distribute it to multiple places for download and direct listening, but to get things rolling we’ll be using YouTube and Facebook to publish the podcasts.

This one is general in its focus. Future episodes will be more specific. We want to get feedback as soon and often as possible.

When we realize we’re not fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, our perspectives on how to wage this battle become more clear. Hopefully, this show will be a blessing to you as much as it has been to us.

Shouldn’t the Left be held accountable for the racism of gun control?

Shouldnt the Left be held accountable for the racism of gun control

Liberty control has its roots in racism. Why isn’t advocating for it considered to be racist?

We find ourselves at a very interesting conflux of issues these days. On the one hand, Democrats in Virginia are fighting off charges of racism while the rest of the nation’s Socialist-Left is openly talking about subjects such as ‘white privilege’ and judging people based on skin color instead of the content of their character as in the Covington Catholic high school case.

Contrast this with their incessant efforts in tearing down basic human rights, in particular the right of self-defense. Meanwhile, we have the 1-year mark of the Parkland mass murder, the fuse that set off the Left’s crusade against Liberty. The Left’s efforts in controlling the right of self-defense have their roots in racism, not to mention that their crusade against this basic human Liberty adversely impact the minority community, so shouldn’t they be condemned for their racism in this regard?

Shouldn’t the Left have to answer for this?

The issue of Liberty [gun] control is one of the Left empowering themselves at the expense of the innocent. What began as a way of depriving certain people of their civil rights has continued on with expansion to those opposed to the Left’s socialist national agenda while still fostering policies that keep minorities vulnerable.

It’s one of those pieces of history the Liberty grabber left would like to keep hidden away like pictures in a yearbook. In what hearkens back to the infamous Dred Scott decision with the right to keep and carry arms a factor, from the text of the decision:

It would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognized as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, and without obstruction, to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of law for which a white man would be punished; and it would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, and inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State.

[Our Emphasis]

We and others have touched on this subject before with the point that that the original purpose of many Liberty control laws was to render certain minorities helpless in the face of KKK terror. This is exemplified in a recent article by David Kopel on The Racist Influence on Gun Control Laws:

How do you stop a lynch mob? With a Winchester repeating rifle. That was the advice of Ida B. Wells, the great journalist who led the fight against lynching. To frustrate her work, a new form of gun control was introduced.

On June 25, 1892, Wells penned an iconic article for the New York Age, which was reprinted as a nationally circulated pamphlet, “Southern Horrors.” After noting cases in which lynch mobs had been defeated by armed blacks, Wells continued: “The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should ponder well is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for the protection which the law refuses to give.

While the laws are no longer overly racist, the incremental assaults on our Liberty adversely impact minorities as pointed out in article on The Racist Roots of Gun Control:

Any kind of licensing scheme on gun ownership represents a costly barrier to entry. Minorities of humble means are effectively priced out of their right to self-defense. Researcher John Lott explained last year in an article for The Hill how expensive licenses and fees for carrying weapons burden minorities and other vulnerable groups.

No matter how much progressives claim to defend minorities, supporting gun control does them a massive disservice. The fear and danger many inner-city dwellers in places like Baltimore and Chicago must contend with on a daily basis is only aggravated by the cities’ gun control policies.

Even the new rage of Gun Confiscation SWATing adversely impacts the most vulnerable. Since they may not have the resources to get back their property and their good name after it has been taken from them without due process. With these so-called ‘Red flag’ laws reported as reported on the site Bearing arms on The spike in gun confiscations thanks to so-called ‘Red Flag Laws’:

Right now, everyone seems to be crowing over the number of seizures, but how many actual tragedies have been avoided? More importantly, how many “false positives” have we seen. By that, I mean how many innocent, law-abiding people with no intention of harming another found themselves disarmed by force of law despite having done nothing wrong because someone else said they did?

While these seizures can be fought, not everyone can afford to do so, making them especially burdensome for the poor who often live in high-crime areas and often rely on their firearms for personal protection.

The Takeaway.

While Leftists have a distinct predilection in projecting their faults on others, the charge of racism is particularly galling. Since as Bill Whittle pointed out they have no real effect except on those who aren’t truly racist.

It is equally galling that Leftists incessantly push for gun confiscation and it’s precursor steps, a socialist agenda item that is steeped in racism. Meanwhile, they take on the air of being the champions of the downtrodden, the people most adversely affected by their quest for power in disarming the people.
