Swing State Poll Purports To Find Voters Think Biden Too Old, Trump Too Dangerous

 

A Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll of more than 1,000 swing state voters found that a large proportion of them believe President Biden is too old to run for re-election, significantly more than say the same about Donald Trump.

44% of the more than 1,000 respondents said Biden was too old, compared to only 34% who said Trump was. On the other hand, fully 45% of those surveyed said Trump was “dangerous,” while only 38% said the same of Biden.

Trump more “dangerous” than Biden? Insanity. There is far more crime today than when Trump was in office. More gang-related flash-grabs, more car jackings, more retail theft, etc. There are 100,000 fentanyl deaths a year in America. And much of this is due to our wide-open southern border and Biden’s steadfast refusal to do anything to secure it. As with everything else, the day Biden took office he was determined to roll back, repeal, or otherwise eviscerate Trump’s successful border policies and cease construction on a border wall. Hello, human/child/sex trafficking. And let’s not forget about the two wars that are raging now that did not exist when Trump was president. Many believe there may well be more to come.

And Trump is dangerous?! More dangerous than Biden? WTH?! What sentient being could think that? (Even Biden’s dog, Commander, was dangerous. In fact, he bit multiple Secret Service agents before Biden reluctantly shipped him out of Washington.) We had much safer streets and cities here at home…and a much safer, calmer planet when Trump was Commander-in-Chief. Hell, Biden, in addition to being dangerous to everyone else, is a danger to himself! His every attempt to climb stairs, ride a bike, or get off a stage is fraught with grave peril. 

The poll respondents should have acknowledged that Biden is too old and dangerous.

If you don’t believe me, just ask a crime victim. Or one of his Secret Service agents.

Biden To Airdrop Food And Supplies Into Gaza

 

U.S. President Joe Biden recently announced plans to implement a military airdrop of food and supplies into Gaza.

Say it ain’t so, Joe. Is the United States aiding both sides in that conflict now?

Here’s what Biden did say: "The loss of life is heartbreaking. People are so desperate that innocent people got caught in a terrible war unable to feed their families, and you saw the response when they tried to get aid in. And we need to do more in the United States, will do more. In the coming days, we’re going to join with our friends in Jordan and others in providing airdrops." Unfortunately, in classic Biden fashion, he said “Ukraine” when he meant to say “Gaza.”

Even more unfortunately, the food and supplies, like virtually all aid purportedly intended for the “innocent people” in Gaza, monetary or otherwise, will end up in the hands—and stomachs—of Hamas terrorists. Oh, and there are surpassingly few “innocent people” in Gaza in any case.

Talk about moral confusion! This would be as if the U.S. had dropped food and supplies into East Berlin in the 1950s!

In reality, this aid is less about helping supposedly innocent people in Gaza, and more about helping Biden curry favor with Muslim voters in Michigan.

Nauseating.

Why Is Everything Being Recalled Now? (U.S. Edition)

 

I can’t recall seeing this many product recalls before.

Cheese. Salad kits. Sandwiches. Chocolate bars. Steak. Chik-fil-a dipping sauce. Even mouthwash and syringes! Etc., etc. Most of the recalls were due to possible contamination or undeclared ingredients, either of which could lead to severe illness or even death, particularly to those with foodborne allergies.

This seems sadly in keeping with derailing trains and parts falling from airplanes. The left’s war on excellence—or even competence-- continues apace.

I have never seen so many recalls in such a remarkably short period of time. And I don’t believe in coincidences. I do believe that “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” or “DEI,” is wreaking havoc on society.

I pray to God I’m wrong, but I have a feeling you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Courage To Serve Act Designed To Lure Immigrants Into U.S. Military

 

Two House members, one Democrat and one Republican, recently introduced the Courage to Serve Act, which, if passed into law, would provide an expedited path to citizenship for migrants who sign up to serve in the U.S. military.

American citizens used to have the courage to serve, too; but, judging by recruitment shortfalls, many no longer have the stomach—or the opportunity-- to do so since the Obiden administration purged the military of conservatives, Christians, and patriots.

In the administration’s defense, it had to purge the military of conservatives, Christians, and patriots so that it could use it to go after conservatives, Christians, and patriots here at home in the ever more dystopian future.

Welcome to the new mercenary American military. Give free stuff to illegal immigrants—including a path to citizenship—and hope they jump at the chance to defend the nation they’ve been told is a heinous hellhole of discrimination and oppression. (But, oddly enough, incredibly generous to “undocumented immigrants!”)

Proposed new military recruitment campaign slogan: “Uncle Sam is misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigoted, and generally hateful…and he wants you…to defend this nation-- to the death if need be!” Who wouldn’t take the opportunity to risk it all when it’s put like that?

Ooh rah!

Scientists To Begin Spewing Chalk And Chemicals Into The Atmosphere To Block Sunlight

 

OMG. And that’s an understatement.

Reports indicate that scientists will soon begin implementing a plan, promoted by Bill Gates and George Soros, to spew chalk dust and certain chemicals into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from the Earth’s surface. The creation of manmade white clouds would be an attempt to lower Earth’s temperature and reverse global warming.

This extraordinary experimental action is set to occur over the next few months, with dust and chemicals being hurled into the atmosphere from various countries, including Australia, Israel, and the United States.

Is blocking sunlight really a good idea? And we know this how? Nothing on this scale has ever been done before. As with the COVID mRNA vaccines, we really don’t know how this will turn out. Fingers crossed. And this roll of the dice is on a cosmic scale! To the extent that it has an effect, it will be the first instance in history of verifiable manmade climate change on a global scale, for better or worse. Kind of ironic if you ask me.

But how can this be? Who authorized this assault on the atmosphere? Surely Bill Gates and George Soros can’t simply, unilaterally impose actions intended to affect weather and climate around the globe. Did I miss something? Did the world’s citizens vote on this? Was the global community consulted? Did each and every nation have a say? Farmers and botanists, the elderly and infirm?

Is there a back-up plan should this attempted nullification of the sun backfire and plant life be adversely affected? Or if we are thrown into a new Ice Age, or even a Little Ice Age? What if the plan bears fruit…and the planet no longer does as it used to?

And why is this not the biggest news story around the globe? The elites are literally gambling with the health of the planet-- and the lives and livelihood of everyone on it—without input or approval from anyone else.

Oh well, the sun will come out tomorrow. Or will it?

Biden Blasts House Members For Taking Vacation

 

President Biden recently blasted members of the House of Representatives for taking a two-week recess, a break he referred to as a "vacation."

The Hypocrite-in-Chief stated, sort of: “Instead of going on a two-week vacation. Two weeks, walking away. Two weeks? What are they thinking? My God, this is bizarre, and it’s just reinforcing, and it's just reinforcing all the concern and, and almost I won't say panic, but real concern about the United States being a reliable ally. This is outrageous."

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black ebony! Biden is on a record pace for presidential vacations, having spent about 40% of his presidency on holiday thus far, significantly more than former President Trump…and virtually all of his other predecessors.

But enough is never enough for donkeys horses’ asses-- old or new. Rep. Eric Smallswell Swalwell (D-CA) recently took to the platform formerly known as Twitter to relate the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s chief political opponent to potential future actions of Donald Trump, should he be returned to the presidency. @RepSwalwell stated:

Let Navalny’s death be a warning to America. If returned to power, Donald Trump will jail his opponents. This isn’t a forecast, he has already told us this. There will be no evidence or due process. And certainly no opposition from Republicans in Congress.

“Jail his opponents?” He might well have to get out of jail first, as his opponents are desperately trying to put him there. That isn’t a forecast, it’s a current reality. Democrats have utterly eschewed due process in their rabid attempts to imprison and destroy Trump. And there has certainly been little or no opposition from Democrats in Congress.

Democrats are to projection as Heinz is to ketchup.

California Democrat Sponsors Bill To Make Insurers Report Firearm Ownership

 

Democratic California Assemblymember Mike Gipson recently authored bill AB-3067, which would require insurance companies to inquire about-- and report on-- the number of firearms owned by folks seeking homeowner’s insurance. 

Can you say “slippery slope?” This is a preposterous invasion of privacy and would continue the recent trend of the federal government coercing private companies to do its nefarious bidding.

Insurance is already a heavily regulated industry. It isn’t much of a stretch to imagine government at first “suggesting” and later mandating that insurance companies surcharge for firearm ownership, making the premiums of those protected by the Second Amendment higher than they would otherwise be. And what next? Would insurers have to report wine cellars, humidors, wet bars, and knife collections? Or perhaps the number and value of any and all fur coats in the household?

It is easy to envision the government someday soon mandating surcharges on those who own only gasoline-powered vehicles. Etc., etc.

Combine this with the coming Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and government will know everything you purchase, own, think, and do, and will be able to modify your behavior—or incarcerate you—as it sees fit.

Brave New World? More like a Depraved New World. One in which, ironically, allegedly “progressive” governments will be the oppressors—and anyone who insufficiently bends the knee will be the oppressed.

And America will have come full circle, from The Declaration of Independence to The Declaration of Dependence. And servitude.

Debt Spending To Surpass Defense Spending This Year

 

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) now estimates that, this year, 2024, the U.S. federal government will spend more on interest on the national debt than on national defense. Or Medicare. You read that correctly. The CBO says that the federal government will spend $850 billion on defense, as opposed to $870 billion on debt interest. Moreover, interest payments on the national debt are the quickest-growing part of the preposterously bloated yet still fast-growing federal budget…and are projected to reach a mind-blowing $5.4 trillion by 2053.

So, effectively, taxpayers are going to have their hard-earned money confiscated to pay $870 billion for nothing. Less than nothing, actually. In a better world, Americans would be able to collectively sue their government for swindling or malfeasance, if not treason. It’s one thing to spend one’s own money like a drunken sailor on shore leave, quite another to spend other people’s money in the same profligate manner. To endlessly spend even more of other people’s money because you’ve already spent too much of their money should be a crime. In a saner world, those responsible would at least be held accountable and be removed from office.

Yet many—if not most—of us are on the take. This lends more power to those in government. Therefore, only a literal handful of politicians in Washington have the courage and integrity to face the debt…and talk honestly about it. Any politician, typically a conservative Republican, who does appear to speak seriously of cutting spending, especially entitlement spending, is immediately portrayed by Democrats and their sycophants in the mainstream media as being “heartless,” or, bizarrely, even “greedy.”

About that characterization, Thomas Sowell, as usual, was spot on in noting, “I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”

Another Thomas, Jefferson in this case, perfectly summed up our choices nearly 250 years ago: To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.

Sadly, at this point, servitude seems the likely winner.

 

 

 

 

 

Ivy League Equity: Deans' Lists A Casualty Of Progress

 

So-called “Ivy League” schools, led by Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania, have begun dispensing with deans’ lists, because…well you likely know why. These erstwhile bastions of “higher education” claim the lists are not only unnecessary, but cause undue stress and anxiety for students.

As might anything requiring effort and competence. Which is why effort and competence are under attack, as is the honoring—or even recognition—of competence and effort. So, out with SAT tests, get rid of deans’ lists, and dispense with honor rolls. Hell, let’s get rid of grading systems entirely!

Measures of ability, aptitude, and competence are ever more passé. The only metric that matters in today’s world is, say it with me now…”diversity, equity, and inclusion.” DEI! Who cares if the surgeon-to-be doesn’t know your tonsils from your toenails, as long as he/she/they check all the right intersectional boxes! And your pilot? Can’t tell an aileron from an elevator, Iceland from France…and panics with a gust of wind? Moot points all! He/she/they hail from a protected class! Feel better now?

While we’re at it, let’s rid ourselves of exalted designations such as “All-Pro” and “All-Star.” They may cause stress and anxiety among athletes! Let’s do away with the Oscars, abolish the Grammys, forgo the Emmys, and nix the Nobel Prize. To the ash heap of history with any acknowledgement of merit! Out with virtue, in with equity!       

Speaking of the assault on excellence and The War on Worthiness, let’s stop awarding Silver Stars, Medals of Honor, and Purple Hearts to the young people in the military defending the nation. Vying for these meaningless trinkets must cause them stress and anxiety. Valor, too, just gets in the way of inclusion.

Equity, pass it on.

The Elites Versus The Rest Of Us

 

The elites view radical, violent protest movements-- and the groups that foster them-- such as Black Lives Matter, with extraordinary tolerance and charity. But when a true populist movement arises, and white, working-class Christians get uppity and threaten to vote for someone like a Donald Trump, they go into full “snit” mode and look down their noses in horror and approbation at the great unwashed.

 “Brexit,” too, was an example of the elites being caught with their pants down. They simply couldn’t believe that many folks would challenge the wisdom they so generously espoused from atop their political thrones. With staggering- and sickening- hubris, these elites characterized Trump’s rise and Britain’s E.U. exit as “illegitimate,” “irrational,” and as unforgivable effrontery- a revolt against “expert’s” authority. (To quote the “Church Lady” from the old Saturday Night Live skit: “Well, isn’t that special!”  It’s well past time these bureaucratic bedsores took one on the chin.)

This “revolt” is anything but irrational. In America, the white working class has suffered through declining marriage rates, stagnant- or worse- wage rates…and even declining life expectancy. They see immigrants and robots taking jobs away from them while their values are denigrated on a daily basis. They see the elites’ attempt to take their firearms away from them at the same time as they strive to import more and more immigrants into their communities, some from terrorist hotbeds. Their eyes widen as the powers-that-be force-feed them transgender bathrooms and mock Christianity while embracing Islam as a “religion of peace.” They bust their ass and pay their taxes… and are rewarded by being called “hicks” and racists and homophobes, even as they see more and more people being given a free ride, courtesy of the government they partially pay for.

                They know they are not the aggressors, but the aggrieved. They are not the predators, but the prey. They have a big target on their backs, and they are finally, logically, reasonably, getting tired of it.

                The elites, for their part, don’t care. They know the end result of their own policies. They carefully pander to every type of minority, as these groups will be the majority in the very near future, and likely an overwhelming majority not that long after that. In a twisted political dance, the “tolerant” elitists are already boldly discriminating against a bare majority…in order to prove to the large minority that they won’t discriminate against them!

                Far too many unelected, bureaucratic pencil-pushers in Washington and Brussels have been granted nearly complete control over those they are supposedly to serve, due to the cravenness of their elected “bosses.” These duplicitous diplomats and sanctimonious “servants” sneer self-righteously at those who they derisively say cling to “their God and their guns,” as they arouse themselves by marinating in their own supposed superiority.

                The West and its signature values of limited representative government, respect for the individual, free will, free markets, discipline, work ethic, and reasoned faith, led the world out of the Dark Ages. Bizarrely and remarkably, the truth of the matter is that elites in the Western media, government, entertainment, and academia are now revolting against the same values that changed the world so much for the better. Progressive?

              In America, the Biden administration is putting the kibosh on gas stoves and now all new liquid natural gas export approvals, ostensibly to fight climate change, but, some believe, more likely just to piss off political opponents. Mindbogglingly, various Western governments are essentially declaring war on farmers, or at least farming, again purportedly to combat global warming. So what will 8 billion people eat? The elites say, “Let them eat bugs!” Indeed, you will eat ze bugs…and be happy! The globalists at the WEF have taken it upon themselves to plan our subjugation. In a sort of reverse Genesis, these would-be deities seek to save the earth from humanity. At the 2024 Forum, the global aristocracy vowed to ramp up censorship of dissenting opinion. If they can successfully implement broad-based censorship of those with whom they disagree, there is no hope for the rest of us to throw off our shackles. Period. That is why the American Founders wrote—and enshrined-- the First Amendment to the Constitution.

 The elites believe they know what’s best for everyone else, and the planet at large.  But, in reality, they are far more concerned with what’s best for them—and their image as virtue signaling champions of a supposedly utopian future. It is up to us to ensure that their assault on logic, morality and sanity does not succeed. No matter the consequences.
