Petition demanding Rashida Tlaib be censured by Congress

The Democratic spin machine is running full-strength following the blatantly anti-Semitic statements Representative Rashida Tlaib made this past weekend. It would seem partisanship overrules common sense and demonstrable reality for the Democrats as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has joined in on spreading the false narrative that this is a Republican and right-wing attack against the Congresswoman.

Here’s the statement that has those opposed to anti-Semitic bigotry up in arms (emphasis ours):

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

Instead of correcting the clear falsehoods and acknowledging her anti-Semitic statement, Tlaib doubled down with a press release trying to spin her words into something they were not.

Tlaib’s closest ally in Congress, fellow freshman Representative Ilhan Omar, attacked those who have condemned Tlaib’s remarks, specifically targeting Representative Liz Cheney by making this a “Muslim” issue despite the fact that Cheney’s Tweet quoted Tlaib directly.

The actual history of Palestinian involvement in WWII was that they sought to eliminate Jews from the region, worked with the Nazis, and immediately went to war with Israel following its formation. This is what Tlaib’s statement claims to have actually been the source of her “calm feeling” regarding the Holocaust. In an attempt to spin, they’re actually acknowledging her words were much worse than we initially believed.

Even CNN had to fact-check her.

We demand Congress immediately censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her vile comments about the holocaust and her subsequent attempts to spread a revised history of the role Palestinians played before, during and after the events of WWII.

    You all deserve what you get for accepting the demonic lie of pacifism which allowed you to bow down and let these satanic antichrist Islamic invaders to walk right over your borders and corrupt your country into the shithole of Marxism and Islam it now is, accursed for all eternity. Only war can ever save you now, and you are all too fucking whipped by the lie of pacifism to ever go to war again, because you believe in nothing and stand for nothing anymore, pathetic agnostic sheep you have all become.

Lindsey Graham makes two great points about the Democrats’ impeachment hysteria

Lindsey Graham makes two great points about the Democrats impeachment hysteria

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox News with Sean Hannity today to discuss how many Democratic lawmakers and candidates for president have gone into full-blown impeachment hysteria. He made a pair of excellent points.

First, he noted that the Democrats are doing so at their own peril. It’s difficult for them to justify pushing forward following failed investigations and realizations that their narrative about President Trump colluding with the Russians was patently false. The American people have and well continue to see through their attacks as nothing more than unhinged anti-Trump rhetoric designed to distract voters from their own shortcomings. Nevertheless, they’re forced into this line of thinking by the hyper-leftist base that is essentially telling them to take the impeachment way or the highway.

But he noted something else equally important. He said, “The public’s going to kick the Democrats out of power and they’re going to reelect the President if he stays focused on doing the job for the American people.” [emphasis mine]

This is extremely important to understand because the President is known as a fighter. Ever since Attorney General William Barr released his summary of the Mueller Report, the President has Tweeted and talked about it almost non-stop. As recently as this morning, he focused again on the Democrats coming after him.

Graham is correct. If the President keeps doing what he’s been doing in the Oval Office and refrains from being drawn into the Democrats’ petty battles with him, the people will appreciate it. If he goes low with them, there could be challenges.

The complete fraud that is National Socialist Healthcare

The complete fraud that is National Socialist Healthcare

The home state of Mr. ‘Medifail for All’ tried National Socialist healthcare and it didn’t work. What is the point of ever trying it again?

One would think that the operation of a socialist health care system in the home of Bernie ‘Medifail for all’ Sanders would be touted until the bovines hit the barn. Well, one would be wrong in that assumption since it never worked as advertised.

The Washington Post recently profiled the rise and spectacular fall of ‘Green Mountain Care’ from the fantastic promises at its inception to its inevitable crash as is the case with every socialist system. The Vermont rendition of single payer – a state version of National Socialist Healthcare – came onto the scene with great promise and fanfare. The problem is that states are forbidden to counterfeit [oops! ‘print’] currency, so they quickly ran out of other people’s money and the whole rotten edifice collapsed.

Why Vermont’s single-payer effort failed and what Democrats can learn from it
Three and a half years after then-Gov. Peter Shumlin of Vermont signed into law a vision for the nation’s first single-payer health system, his small team was still struggling to find a way to pay for it.

Two days later, on Dec. 17, 2014, Shumlin, a Democrat who had swept into office promising a health-care system that left no one uninsured, announced he was giving up.

The trajectory of Green Mountain Care, as Vermont’s health system was to be known — from the euphoric spring of 2011 to its crash landing in late 2014 — offers sobering lessons for the current crop of Democrats running for president, including Vermont’s own Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), most of whom embrace Medicare-for-all or other aspirations for universal insurance coverage.

[Our Emphasis]
Oddly enough, the local socialist Senator rarely mentions this when trying to sell everyone else on this statist snake oil. Those with a modicum of intelligence tend to learn from the colossal mistakes of others, implementing what works while rejecting that which does not. Then there are those on the Left who insanely insist on repeating those mistakes, hoping for a counterintuitive outcome.

This is no academic exercise, born of the Platonic dialogs from 2,400 years ago on the ‘Ideal state’. This is a deadly serious matter with millions of people’s lives at stake. Not to mention that as reported by the Associated-Press that ‘Medicare for all’ was projected to cost $32.6 trillion.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” plan would boost government health spending by $32.6 trillion over 10 years, requiring historic tax hikes, says a study released Monday by a university-based libertarian policy center.

That’s trillion with a “T.”

Optimal conditions – and single payer still failed

One couldn’t ask for better conditions for this failed experiment in state socialist health care. The same report from the Washington post on this failed experiment noted that:

It has some of the nation’s healthiest residents, with some of the lowest rates of uninsured. It is small and homogeneous. It shares a border with Canada, putting an existing single-payer system within sight. And it has just one main insurer, the nonprofit Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, repeatedly ranked the most efficient Blue Cross Blue Shield plan in the nation.

It was supposed to lower costs, insure more people while eliminating waste, fraud and abuse [Stop us if you’ve heard this joke before]. Unsurprisingly, it failed to do this. Nevertheless, the hometown senator of this communist catastrophe still touts the same ‘features’ in trying to sell his $32.6 trillion pipe dream.

Unfortunately for the purveyors of these plans presumably fueled by pixie dust and allusions to brand new ‘rights’ conjured up out of thin air the author of the piece failed to offer a solution aside from ‘controlling costs’ [read: death panels] or counterfeiting.. er.. ‘printing’ more money to endlessly throw into the bottomless pit that is the government.

It ran into all manner of problems, including what to do with people coming in over the border for all the free goodies [Stop us if you’ve also heard this one before]. Ever increasing tax rates hobbling the economy, ending with the fact that the costs of a bloated bureaucracy would mean less coverage that what the people already had.

Ironically enough, when the whole system died an inglorious death, Bernie Sanders was in Iowa testing the presidential waters, never mentioning the failure of single payer in his home state, the very idea that he incessantly touts. Why bother with facts and logic when one can just invoke counterfeit civil rights, paid for with other people’s money?

Meanwhile, the ‘objective’ media cheerleads for socialistic slavery

Still, this hasn’t stopped the ever ‘objective’ national socialist media from writing ‘News’ stories on the subject, such as this sickening saccharine piece from the Associated-Press ‘Medicare for All’s’ rich benefits ‘leapfrog’ other nations.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Generous benefits. No copays. No need for private policies. The “Medicare for All” plan advocated by leading 2020 Democrats appears more lavish than what’s offered in other advanced countries, compounding the cost but also potentially broadening its popular appeal.

Reading that infomercial for socialism, one can almost imagine the rise of a superhero in the guise of a later-day superman. The virtual embodiment of every wonderful feature of ‘Medifail for all’ vanquishing every cost overrun, taking down the ever evil private health insurance monster, providing free healthcare for all while dispensing Mocha Lattes on the side.

Faster than a speeding cost overrun. More powerful than free enterprise. Able to heap benefits to all in a single bound.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane It’s Single payer socialism! Here to save the day…. Until it implodes the economy.

After which, no one is helped.  How is that compassion?

Single payer can never work

Sadly, the author of the Washington post piece failed to cite how to get the bloated edifice off the ground. This is because there is no way to get it to fly.

The proper way to address this problem is to try a different direction, away from authoritarian socialism and towards economic Liberty. Conjuring up new civil rights does little to pay for all the freebies. As way experienced with a single payer experiment under ideal conditions, the end result was worse than what already existed.

There is no point in trying something that is doomed to failure, single payer [or whatever it’s called] can never work as advertised.

The Takeaway

It should be obvious that a governmental solution to the problem does not exist. Thus, it only makes sense to try a different approach. This won’t empower the Socialist-Left, but they claim to only have everyone’s best interests at heart. Let them show that is the case with a system based on economic Liberty instead of socialistic slavery.

None of the states that have signed the National Popular Vote Compact voted for Trump in 2016

None of the states that have signed the National Popular Vote Compact voted for Trump in 2020

File this in the “not surprising” cabinet. Of the 14 states plus the District of Columbia who have signed on for the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, none of them voted for President Trump in 2016. So as of today, the 189 electoral college votes that have been promised to the winner of the popular vote in the presidential election were votes that went to Hillary Clinton anyway.

That doesn’t mean this isn’t a real threat. If they’re able to get to the 270-vote mark, the level necessary to trigger the compact and elect the President, that would mean they were able to take some states that voted for Trump in 2016. But that’s not the real threat, here.

As some states move forward with efforts to prevent President Trump from appearing on their ballots unless he releases his tax returns, the combination of the two efforts could make it literally impossible for President Trump to win reelection.

There were very good reasons the founding fathers did not want the popular vote to determine the presidency. The first and biggest is a fear of mob rule. Oppression by the majority is a natural and unfair concept that, in theory, could change the way our nation operates for decades to come. Because so much Democratic power is concentrated in large cities on the coasts, it is easier for them to unify behind a leftist message and dominate the elections. Democrat-heavy New York City has more people than 38 states.

As for the states’ requirements to have tax returns released before letting a candidate on the ballot, it may be draconian but it’s neither illegal nor immoral. I know that’s not a popular opinion to have since it’s being used against President Trump, but the states are allowed to set whatever criteria they want for BALLOT entry. Keep in mind, that does NOT mean I condone the actions as they’re directed against the President. Also, in no way can a state supersede the requirements for someone to be elected president. Ballot issues, as bad as they’ve been over the years, are still squarely under the jurisdiction of the states and must be protected. There are enough states’ rights that have been taken away over the years. This shouldn’t be one of them.

With that said, it makes things very, very difficult for someone who is not on the ballot. Write-in votes don’t always work properly. Bad spelling, bad handwriting, bad vote-counters – the possibilities are endless. I sincerely hope no state, especially California, moves forward with such a plan to keep the President off the ballot.

Imagine this scenario: President Trump wins the popular vote and takes not only the states that he wins but also the states that would have voted for the Democrat. It would be the biggest landslide since Reagan, 1984.
