Left-coast liberal Gov. Brown compared Trump supporters to cave dwellers: The left loves stereotyping

Published

on

California Governor Jerry Brown yesterday called President Trump’s North Korea strategy “stupid and dangerous and silly,” while comparing the president’s supporters to cave dwellers. While speaking at a climate change event in New York, Brown said that “they’re both kind of very similar… “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.”

This is a clear insult to mean that Trump supporters are primitive, unevolved and dumb, possibly up there with Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” characterization.

This disgusting characterization of Trump supporters is also coming from a governor largely responsible for running his state into the ground. From high taxes, pushing for a single-payer healthcare system, to businesses leaving the state in droves, the state of California has become nothing other than an example of the failures of progressivism, big government and the Democrat party.

Even so, California consistently decides to double-down on its progressivism, the latest example being the state legislature passing Senate Bill 54 on Saturday, which will turn the state into a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants, as The Daily Wire’s Aaron Bandler reported yesterday. Despite the fact that illegal immigrants have been responsible for a massive amount of crime in the state, most notably Kate Steinle’s murder in San Francisco in 2015 by an illegal immigrant previously deported five times, California keeps pushing the Leftist agenda, because politics always beats the safety and security of the state’s citizens.

But what’s most interesting is that one would think that after Trump’s awful last two weeks, where he seems to have betrayed his base by cutting deals with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the Left would try to capitalize on the anger of Trump voters, to possibly win them over. But, alas, the Left hates Trump voters so much that they will say and do things that make Trump look like a god to his base, because their narrative is most important to them.

It is also interesting to note that the Left’s hate for Trump supporters goes beyond politics. Rush Limbaugh mentioned on his show yesterday that even after the president’s new bromance and deal with “Chuck and Nancy,” much of Trump’s base is still loyal to him. Yet the Left will still tear into them only because they voted for Trump, even if they are happy to reach across the aisle. This shows that the hatred is not only political, it’s also personal.

This is a great illustration of the fact that the Left doesn’t care about the little guy, as they love to say. They only stand for one thing—the power of the state. Their ideology stands above all else, even losing elections.

Brett Kavanaugh proves Trump lied about putting strict constructionists on the Court

Brett Kavanaugh proves Trump lied about putting strict constructionists on the Court

When Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy retired earlier this year, it was perfect timing for Trump and the GOP as they looked for political distractions to shift voter attention away from two years of ineptitude and broken promises ahead of the 2018 election.

But Kennedy’s retirement wasn’t enough on its own. What the GOP really needed was a manufactured crisis surrounding Kennedy’s replacement, and with help from the Democrats, they got their wish with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Thanks to the Brett Kavanaugh circus they were able to create, Trump and the GOP Clown Show succeeded in distracting voters even though it failed to save them from the Blue Tsunami.

I opposed Brett Kavanaugh from the beginning for many reasons:

As if these reasons weren’t enough, Kavanaugh testified during his confirmation hearing that he considered Roe v. Wade “settled Supreme Court precedent” that has been “reaffirmed many times.”

Kavanaugh’s nomination was contrary to Trump’s promise to appoint “strict constructionists” who would defend life. More disappointing than this betrayal, however, was watching so-called evangelicals give Trump their undying worship by supporting Kavanaugh’s nomination despite his checkered past.

Concerns about Kavanaugh’s support of a woman’s “right” to murder her unborn child were realized yesterday when he joined the Court’s liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts — but I repeat myself — to reject appeals by Louisiana and Kansas seeking to end public funding of Planned Parenthood through the Medicaid program.

By rejecting the appeal, the Court left intact lower court rulings that prevented Louisiana and Kansas from defunding the baby butchers.

When I shared the news of this betrayal on social media, I heard from an individual who incorrectly defended the decision by saying that it only affected the non-abortion services provided by Planned Parenthood. Why was he wrong? Because money is fungible.

Any money Planned Parenthood receives frees up funds to murder unborn babies.

Justice Clarence Thomas spelled out in his dissent the motivation behind this betrayal when he essentially called his fellow jurists cowards who lacked the courage to fulfill their constitutional responsibility and stand up to Planned Parenthood.

“What explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some of the respondents in the case are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’”

Justice Thomas is correct, but I’ll take it a few steps further.

This decision proves that Trump lied about appointing strict constructionist pro-life judges, that cheap-grace evangelicals care more about a seat at Trump’s table than they do the unborn, and that Kavanaugh is the fraud we knew he was all along.

Trump, GOP will work with Dems to add global warming legislation to infrastructure spending

Trump GOP will work with Dems to add global warming legislation to infrastructure spending

As 2018 winds to a close and the failed two-year experiment giving Trump, McConnell, and Ryan complete control of Washington breathes its last, Democrats have been busy charting a course correction after having their agenda temporarily knocked off course in 2016.

I wrote last week about how Democrats would be placing a new focus on their Democratic Socialist-inspired agenda in a host of areas from gun control to global warming. In that piece, I introduced you to the Green New Deal, a plan being promoted by Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist from New York.

The goal of the Green New Deal is to pass laws in Washington forcing the United States to become 100 percent dependent on so-called green energy. And while it’s tempting to write-off Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to create an environmental Xanadu as nothing more than the naïve rantings of a textbook left-wing loon — which she is, by the way — the reality is that Al Gore’s Church of Global Warming is about to experience a revival.

Since the Democrats will control the House, it’s a given that the global warming agenda will be advanced under Nancy Pelosi’s “leadership.” But what about the Senate?

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wrote in an open letter to Donald Trump on Friday that the United States’ transition to renewable energy “must” be included in the infrastructure spending debate expected to take place in 2019.

“It is crucial that we immediately enact legislation to combat climate change and create millions of jobs. Therefore, any clean infrastructure package considered in 2019 must include policies and funding to transition to a clean energy economy and mitigate risks that the United States is already facing due to climate change.”

So, who cares? Right? After all, the Senate is still under GOP control and Trump could always veto the bill even if it makes it through the Senate.

Well, besides the fact that Trump has NEVER used his veto pen — probably because he’s been busy using his executive order pen to destroy the Second Amendment — he and the GOP love big-government spending as much as the Democrats.

You may recall that Trump announced in his first State of the Union address — and repeated in his second — plans to spend $1 trillion or more on infrastructure. On top of that, Republicans in the House released an infrastructure-spending plan back in July when they were busy trying to buy votes in the hope that it would save their majority.

By the way, the GOP would pay for their Obama-esque infrastructure plan by raising gasoline taxes by 15-cents-a-gallon and diesel taxes by 20-cents-a-gallon. It would also raise taxes on a host of “green transportation” alternatives, such as: bikes, bicycle tires, and car batteries. All of these tax increases are supported by Trump.

I can hear the cult now; “Trump said last week that he doesn’t believe in global warming, and he called on the world to end the ‘ridiculous‘ Paris climate agreement that he withdrew the U.S. from last summer.”

As is usually the case when it comes to Donald Trump, nothing he says can be counted on.

First, Trump has pretty much made Ivanka his climate czar and she’s a devotee to Al Gore’s global warming religion. Second, Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement was in-name-only. In the same speech where he announced the withdrawal, Trump made a commitment to negotiate a way to get back in it. Third, to borrow a phrase from Al Gore, we have the “inconvenient truth” that only days after his 2016 victory, Trump said in an interview that he believes there is “some connectivity” between humans and climate change.

The Democrats will control the agenda in 2019. And when you add Trump’s lack of any firm convictions, his past commitment to work with “Chuck and Nancy,” his 2020 aspirations, and his love of big government, then a budget-busting infrastructure bill that includes some or all of the Green New Deal is pretty much a done deal.

Mark Meadows on term limits

Around 80% of Americans support term limits for members of Capitol Hill. Despite this super-majority, lawmakers have been reluctant to even discuss the possibility of such a move. It goes against the nature of career politicians which make up the lion’s share of people in the House and Senate.

House Freedom Caucus co-founder Mark Meadows (R-NC) has been a proponent of term limits. His push to limit members of Congress to three two-year terms and Senators to two six-year terms has been widely praised by voters, yet still remains a tough sell to lawmakers.

“Our founders never intended Congress to be a career–part of why Washington has become so dysfunctional is the shift away from this principle. Congressional term limits would do wonders toward addressing the problem.”
