Will Chris Christie be the next Attorney General?

Will Chris Christie be the next Attorney General

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has had his share of controversies throughout his political career. Now, he’s rumored to be a top choice of President Trump to replace Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.

The moderate Republican ran for president in 2016 before dropping out and endorsing then-candidate Donald Trump. It was viewed by many as political hedging that would help him get a cabinet position, but BridgeGate made it hard for the President to give Christie anything other than a temporary position on his White House transition team.

Apparently, enough time has gone by for his name to resurface for a role that suits his experiences.

Christie’s claim to fame has been being appointed U.S Attorney by President Bush shortly before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He built a strong resume in law enforcement circles and drew enough attention to become a Republican governor in deep blue New Jersey.

He used this claim to fame on the campaign trail.

“I was appointed United States attorney on September 10, 2001. And I spent the next seven years of my career fighting terrorism and putting terrorists in jail.”

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

How was the left able to take heat away from their Medicare-for-All proposal, and more specifically the estimated $32 trillion price tag over a decade? They tripled down with the Green New Deal, which some estimate would cost upwards near $100 trillion.

So, the price tag of the Democrats’ desired replacement for utterly failing Obamacare is to take current government control over healthcare and put it on a regiment of steroids and methamphetamine. When you’re going through Hell, keep going, I suppose.

But all of this could be alleviated if voters and politicians took a moment to think about the prospects of Medicare-for-All logically. Let’s erase, for a moment, the Utopian notion that taxing rich people extreme amounts will give us enough money to make healthcare free for everyone while also improving the quality. That’s the goal, right? Cheaper, better healthcare is what most people want. Conservatives believe it’s best to pull government administration out of the equation and put it all on a competitive capitalist model that has worked for nearly every other industry for over a century. Hyper-leftists want to add more government control.

Conservative commentator Thomas Sowell has some thoughts on the matter. One in particular can be wrapped up into an eloquent quote that should be ideological checkmate allowing us to win the healthcare debate.

“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.”

Of course, our version of checkmate requires common sense, logic, and basic math skills. These attributes aren’t as readily present on the left, therefore they might hear this logic and still think single-payer makes sense.

Alexander Hamilton predicted Trump Derangement Syndrome

Alexander Hamilton predicted Trump Derangement Syndrome

Federalist Alexander Hamilton is known for many things. His contributions to the Federalist Papers were some of the strongest. Even his death is a thing of lore. Then, of course, there’s the Broadway hit of his namesake. But what many don’t know is that he was also a fortune teller.

Okay, so technically he wasn’t really a fortune teller, but he seems to have been very prescient in the way he analyzed potential problems within government. One of his “predictions” was Trump Derangement Syndrome and one of the unfortunate side-effects – hating the messenger instead of the message. There are plenty of things that could make anyone, from leftist to conservative, quite upset. But those who are fair realize there have been some great things that have also happened during his short time as President. One needs only look at the state of the economy to realize he’s doing something right compared to his predecessor.

Here’s the quote from Hamilton that characterizes TDS perfectly:

“Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike.”

If President Obama had called for a border wall, he would get bipartisan support. But he didn’t. President Trump did. That makes it anathema in the eyes of leftists.

The Ludwig von Mises quote that exposes the rank hypocrisy of the Socialist-Left

The Ludwig von Mises quote that exposes the rank hypocrisy of the Socialist-Left

We look at how a quote from Ludwig von Mises perfectly summarises the Left’s hypocritical nature.

“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement.

They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty.

They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship.

They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent.

They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!”

Ludwig von Mises

The quote from Ludwig von Mises perfectly epitomizes the duplicity of the Socialist-Left. These are people who are incapable of being honest about their fraudulent base ideology of socialism. Using a number of deceptive labels that mean the opposite of their true nature. They have only recently dropped the mask as being gun confiscators and socialists, but now they are desperately searching the floor trying to put it back on before anyone notices. Their exploitation of the word Liberal while they work overtime to destroy Liberty is the most prominent of them all. However the rest of them aside from Socialist-Left also peg the deception meter.

Two of the most infuriating tactics of the Socialist-Left: Word deception and Projection

Word deceptions and projections are two of the most infuriating aspects of dealing with our comrades on the nation’s Socialist-Left. Their tried and true tactic is to use certain words or pejorative to at a minimum set the debate favourable to them or simply ‘win’ the argument with one word or phrase.

The parody video ‘How to debate right wingers(satire)’ illustrated this quite nicely. Showing the all too common tactic of the Left accusing anyone who disagrees with them as being ‘Racist’, ‘sexist’, ‘Transphobic’, ‘Homophobic’ or any one of the plethora of one word retorts or short phrases with the singular purpose of discrediting the opposition while shutting down debate.

The second all too common tactic of the nation’s Socialist-Left is to accuse others of what they are doing-in spades. The projection tactic is meant to knock back the opposition into a defensive posture that also suppresses an open and honest debate of the issues. This is also coupled with their aggressive use of setting the terms of the debate favourable to them.

A prime example of Leftist projection

One prime example is a new publication making reference to an online ‘civil war’ replete with Leftist tropes on repealing the 2nd amendment and questioning whether or not we should have rich people while others are starving. With one of the Leftist review making the absurd presumption that the Pro-Liberty Right is somehow dividing the nation, denying science, and most infuriatingly, destroying civil liberties.

Does it have to be mentioned that it’s the pro-Liberty Right that is in favour of the scientific method or even acknowledging that there are only two genders? Or that it’s the Socialist-Left that is pitting certain groups against each other in their victimhood Olympics.

To claim that it’s the Pro-Liberty Right guilty of these actions would almost be the pinnacle of projection. Except that even those tropes are topped with the assertion that we’re trying to destroy Civil Liberties a claim that is mind-boggling in it’s scope. That is the point of such tactics, an offensive [in more ways than one] attack that sets the opposition into an immediate defensive posture.

The false claim that the Pro-Liberty Right is trying to destroy civil liberties

This is the kind of projective attack by the Socialist-Left that is breathtaking in sheer insolence given its recent actions. Aside from a few RINOs such Marko Rubio (R-FL) or Lindsey Graham (R-SC) working to destroy due process, helping along a bill to encourage Gun Confiscation SWATing [aka Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) or “red flag laws”] on March 26th. It is primarily the Socialist-Left working overtime to destroy the common sense human and civil Right of self-defense, due process, free-speech and a host of other civil Liberties.

The Socialist-Left attacks against free-speech

These are but a few examples meant to illustrate the point, with Leftist assaults against free speech being the most egregious. After all, we have people on the Socialist-Left claiming that they are ‘Liberal’ while going after Liberty whenever they can on Twitter or YouTube. Banning certain personalities for unspecified offenses while ignoring far more damming examples from the Socialist-Left. But listen to someone on the Left, somehow those of us on the Pro-Liberty right are the culprits in this case.

The Socialist-Left attacks against the right of self-defense

Aside from the above examples, it’s been the nation’s Socialist-Left that has been conducting a full frontal assault on this basic human and civil right. With national and local efforts that simply renew their efforts after each incremental restriction on freedom. Everything from trying to carry out government control of private property to the wholesale banning and confiscation of almost every firearm. Not to mention a new effort by the Liberty grabber Left to repeal the second amendment.

Time was, the Socialist-Left would deny their final solution to the Liberty problem or get what they could with the occurrence of a ‘serious crisis’. These days, they push through freedom restricting legislation and the come around again to see what else they can get. In the meantime, they maintain the fiction that they don’t really want to ban and confiscate guns while making demands to ban and confiscate guns.

The ultimate in Leftist assaults on civil Liberties with Gun confiscation SWATing

These could rightfully hold the record [for now at least] for violating the most human and civil Liberties in one fell swoop. It should be understood that these violate the 2nd, but they also infringe on the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th amendments. Then there is the issue that 1st is also on the chopping block since speech on the subject of firearms could deem on to be dangerous. The Left has already bandied about the idea that gun owners are ‘terrorists’, what’s to stop them from deeming every gun owner as dangerous, requiring a ‘dynamic entry’ with a SWAT team in the middle of the night?

The Takeaway

If the Socialist-Left had a practical system instead of a fraudulent ideology, they would have no need for deception and projection. They could have simply announced what they were and lived with the electoral consequences. But then again, if their collectivist system actually worked, they would have no need to impose it by force and deprive the people of their commonsense human and Civil Liberties.

The fraud of socialism has been a failure for over 400 years, thus it can only be foisted on a people by at first deception and then later by force. That is why they cannot abide the precepts of Liberty and honesty.
