Jim Koch likes tax cuts, so Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone is boycotting Samuel Adams beer

Published

Some of us don’t agree with the President generally but appreciate some of the actions he’s taken. This is a reasonable stance; you don’t have to agree with someone philosophically or even like them personally to like some of their actions. Arguably the best thing the GOP Congress and President Trump have done since taking power are the tax cuts. What’s not to like?

Unfortunately, many on the left don’t feel the same way. Whether they’re against a particular policy or simply against against anything that starts with the letter “T” and ends in the word “rump,” they will go out of their way to not only protest the President’s actions but demonize anyone who doesn’t feel the same way. Such is the case with a Massachusetts mayor, Joseph A. Curtatone, and his fresh boycott against Samuel Adams beer.

Did they ship jobs overseas? No. Did they rip off consumers, lie about their products, or cheat on their taxes? No. Perhaps they espoused a Biblical worldview – many liberals hate that and will demonize any prominent people who do such a dastardly deed. No, they didn’t do that either.

What Jim Koch, co-founder and chairman of the Boston Beer Company who produces Samuel Adams, did was give praise about the tax cuts that are saving American tax-payers real money. At a dinner the President held for various business owners, Koch didn’t show support for the President or any of his more controversial policies. He likes the tax cuts, as any fair-minded and money-conscious American should. Unfortunately, that was enough to make Curtatone whip out his social justice warrior card and call for a boycott.

Even the Boston Herald had to question Curtatone’s stance.

Editorial: Mayor Walsh stands against Boston Beer boycott

http://www.bostonherald.com/opinion/editorials/2018/08/editorial_mayor_walsh_stands_against_boston_beer_boycottIt was an important, symbolic step for Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh to come out against any boycott of Samuel Adams ale, as Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and others vowed to never drink the Boston Beer Co. product again.

Walsh told the Herald’s Brooks Sutherland, “I think that if you start talking about boycotting something against elected officials, including the president, there’s not much stuff we’d be able to buy in the country.”

When a liberal politician wants to make headlines, they fight against a perceived injustice. That means Curtatone believes the tax cuts were unjust. The people of Somerville should remember that next time they go to the balo

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Former NFL player Burgess Owens delivered an amazing speech before Congress today talking about reparations. He called for them, but not from the United States government as Democrats are wanting. He wants reparation paid by the Democratic Party to the African-Americans Owens believes have been hurt by the leftist ideology espoused by today’s Democrats.

The opening minute of his speech was exceptional:

“Thank you so much for this opportunity. I’m gonna take a different tack from beginning. We are at this point, this is not about black and white, rich or poor, blue collar, white collar. We’re fighting for the heart and soul of our nation.

“We have a very, very special country instilled with the Judeo-Christian values that allowed every single generation become better than the last, and that has not ended, that has not stopped… until now. We’re telling our kids a little bit something different, that they don’t have the opportunities that we had.

“I’m going to talk about some ideologies and when I talk about them I’m not talking about people. People change. I used to be Democratic until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race. So when I talk about these ideologies, ideologies don’t change. People do.

“We are fighting for the heart and soul of our nation against socialism, Marxism, and evil that it has brought to us in distilling of our history. Karl Marx said it best, the father of socialism, an atheist, anti-semite, and a blatant racist.”

As good as his opening was, the rest of it was even better.

In our post-truth society, the words of Burgess Owens will be dismissed or ignored by the left. But hopefully some will hear them and start asking questions about Democrats as he did.

AOC offers no solutions and ‘not one dime’ for DHS to fix ‘concentration camps’

AOC offers no solutions and not one dime for DHS to fix concentration camps

Let’s play a quick game of “read between the lines.”

Alexandria Ocasion-Cortez complained about migrant detention centers at the border being “concentration camps.” I disagree, but so be it. Let’s assume the detention centers are inhospitable and even inhumane based on the sheer mass of people coming across the border and filing asylum claims. One would think the solution would be to improve conditions by increasing funding so quality and quantity of housing at the centers across the border can be improved.

But that’s not what AOC wants to happen.

“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children and families,” she Tweeted.

So, back to reading between the lines…

The current detention centers are insufficient to handle the influx of migrants.

But AOC and the party she now controls won’t vote to fund them at all, let alone giving them sufficient funds to handle the masses.

Therefore, AOC wants migrants to be immediately released into the interior of the United States once they receive their hearing date, which 90% won’t attend anyway.

As AOC takes control of her party, her “leadership” is to recommend not allowing migrants to be detained in “concentration camps” and no funding to improve them. She wants them released without restrictions.

7 reasons Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee

7 reasons Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee

There are those who say the Democratic nomination for president is Joe Biden’s to lose. And he will. As much as I’d love to see the only Democratic candidate who doesn’t want to destroy America become the nominee just in case President Trump loses, it’s becoming increasingly clear he has no real chance.

Why? Because he sounds like the Democrats of 2012, which means he’s completely out of touch with the New Democratic Party being crafted by the likes of Bernie Sanders, Gavin Newsom, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Pete Buttigieg.

Here are seven reasons I believe Biden will not only lose the nomination, but will not be among the last two or three standing.

  1. Progressives are splitting the majority polling nods. Don’t be fooled by his frontrunner status. He’s the only non-radical in the top five. Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg represent different aspects of the growing hyper-leftist base of the Democratic Party. When the 15 or so non-factors in the race drop out, their supporters will generally flock to one of the four non-Biden frontrunners.
  2. He doesn’t hate rich people. The New Democratic Party hates rich people even if many of them are among the wealthy. But Biden doesn’t hate them and even said today, “Rich people are just as patriotic as poor people.” Statements like that do not abide by the socialists in the race, nor will it resonate with the increasing number of socialists among Democratic primary voters.
  3. His team can’t protect him from his gaffes forever. His campaign has done and will continue to do everything they can to keep him out of the spotlight, away from questions, and off any radar other than prepared statements and press releases. They can’t afford his gaffes, but he’s going to have to come out at some point. He has to debate. He has to give speeches and answer questions that aren’t always prepared. And when he does, he’s going to deliver gaffes. That’s what he does.
  4. Switching positions will hurt, not help. The Hyde Amendment reversal was just one in a long string of reversals he has made and will make on old policy perspectives. That’s the problem with being a politicians for so many decades. As the party evolves, which it is doing rapidly now, he’s going to have to backtrack on old ideas. But doing so will not help him. In the eyes of voters, especially passionate primary voters, evolution of perspectives is not a positive. It reveals a willingness to do and say things that go with the crowd instead of coming from the gut. It also won’t make the original complainers happy. You won’t see those criticizing him for his initial Hyde Amendment support suddenly promote him after he changed his mind.
  5. He’s an old straight white guy. This isn’t the party for old straight white guys. This also means Sanders is in deep trouble as well.
  6. The Justice Democrats will sink him. They’ve already started going after him with devious ploys. They will continue do everything in their power keep him off the general election ticket. It isn’t just because he isn’t radical enough for them. He represents the old version of the party that the Justice Democrats despise.
  7. He doesn’t really want it. If Biden wanted to be president, he would have run in 2016. Some say he needed a break, but those who truly want something as significant as winning the White House don’t come to that conclusion at 76. It’s part of them. However, they can decide later they no longer want to be president, and I believe that’s where Biden is today. I think he was pushed into running because the alternatives were radicals who will either lose to Trump or fundamentally transform America in a very bad way if they win. But his personal desire doesn’t seem to be there anymore. It was, but that flame is gone.

The coming political death of Joe Biden is the symbolic end of the old Democratic Party, the one that worked with Reagan and Bush, the one that wasn’t comprised of politicians who hate America.
