Steve Bannon makes a persuasive case for the notion that Mike Bloomberg is doing a Leverage Buyout (LBO) of the Democratic Party.
There is NO reason that he is being permitted to be on the Democratic debate stage, other than he has PAID for it.
And, I do agree about Little Mike’s motivation – he is attempting to wrest the reins of the party from the hands of the Seriously Socialist.
As opposed to the Socialist-Lite crowd that has held it in the last 50 or so years.
Now, the Socialist-Lite crowd should not be confused from those Socialists that actually want a revolution. The Socialist-Lite (SL, for short) only preach socialism up to a point. That would be the point at which the Taken-by-Force money passes through their hands – with a hefty surcharge being exacted for the process.
AOC and the other kinda-sorta Serious Socialists do want a revolution. Cue the old Beatles song.
But, in their minds, the revolution will end up with THEM in charge.
Foolish children. They don’t realize that the Original Revolutionaries (ORs) always get tossed out by the ruthless people who follow them. We call them the Kleptocrats, as their only passion is to acquire money – LOTS of money. See list below for a few:
- Fidel Castro – he was a piker – ONLY $900 million
- Hugo Chavez – $1 billion
- Vladmir Putin – $70 billion
- Michael Bloomberg – $56 billion
- Yassar Arafat – at his death, more than $1 billion
- Xi Jinping – personally, not known – his siblings have over $1 billion
- Justin Trudeau – $10 million
- Joe Biden – $1.5 billion. However, as VP, he steered a whole lot in the direction of his family members – see Profiles in Corruption, if you want an overview of just how that is done.
- AOC – although she is just a newbie to the politics game, she’s apparently on track for greater wealth – $100,000, so far
- The Clinton Clan – more than $300 million, so far.
- The Obama Family – lowest estimate, $40 million.
- The Pelosi Family – $140 million.
Hmmm. Maybe we SHOULD turn socialist – it seems that it pays off, quite well.
The always prescient Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, gives us directions, in a simple-to-follow template. Go to this link to view it.
Simply follow the accusation with that easy step, and – Voilà! You have photo-bombed the accuser, and can walk away, safe in the fact that you are armored against further threats.
BTW, that à? It turns out, that on a Mac keyboard, you just hold the letter you want to accent, and a little pop-up will show you the alternatives, Just click on the one you want with the mouse/trackpad/touchscreen.
I can’t tell you how long I’ve needed to know that.
Impeachment – Schiff-for-Brains is calling Trump GUILTY, before hearing the evidence of BOTH sides.
Say, isn’t that what might be called bias? Not a good thing BEFORE the evidence is in. Well, unless you’re a Leftist.
Then, of Republican Nixon (BEFORE the Impeachment hearings had concluded).
And, now – after time and maturity had kicked in.
Corruption – “There is nothing new under the sun”, as the Bible has it (I’m linking to multiple translations – pick your fav).
I haven’t bought the new Peter Schweitzer book, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, yet. I was hoping to find it in the public libraries.
Ohhhh. I’m out of breath – laughing when you have a cold really takes it out of you.
I kid, I kid. When I finish this post, I’m buying it. Hate to part with that much money ($14.99 for the Kindle edition), but, I need something to read while the Senate Democrats and RINOs beclown themselves in the Impeachment farce.
Celebrities – OMZ, Taylor Swift (that erudite and highly educated political philosopher) has written a new song that will galvanize the teen masses to revolution against their “sinister” GOP overlords!
Well, that’s it.
We need to give up now.
If Yet Another Aging Celebrity Poseur (YAACP) has come out against Trump, his supporters, and all that he has accomplished, there’s no alternative we have, but to surrender.
Other – our family has lost another member – my sister-in-law’s brother, at way too young. My husband will be traveling for the funeral; I will not – both recovering from an injury, and coming down with a cold. As well as two business-related events that I can’t miss.
And, by that, I mean those opposing the Left should be working – in both the Democratic Party and GOP, to take over the framework that nominates the next party leaders, and controls the party apparatus.
Over at Conservative Hardliner, there is a breakdown of the step-by-step process that can give the back of our hands to Mittens and his ilk.
It will take time. It cannot be our only focus. But, with HALF of the precinct committee slots vacant, it’s an easy strategy to put into place.
Ohio has a solid website, that has information pertinent to the process. There is also a downloadable book (several chapters) that seems worth reading. This is not just important for this 2020 election; we will need to support those non-RINOs that do exist, and help them build a strong precinct. From that will come the next generation of leaders.
Guys (in the generic sense, no disrespect to the women), we are the core. If the Revolution stops with us, we’re done. We need to be bringing on board our replacements, ASAP. We need to reach out, and slot them into available places, always looking for those who might move to the next level. Training is critical; realizing that we are NOT irreplaceable is right up there in importance.
There are enough of us to take over the existing structure; rather than splintering it into insignificance, let’s do an end run around the Never-Trumps and Let’s-Be-Proper-When-We-Lose types.
Are You Ready to Rumble?
We often complain about the GOP leadership in the House and Senate. We SHOULD be keeping a closer eye on the dunderheads in the states, who can do far more damage at that local level.
A prime example is the decision of GOP governors to agree to accept “refugees” into their states, including the state of my birth, Ohio (dumba$$ governor is Mike DeWine).
[NOTE: anyone wanting to challenge DeWine for the GOP nomination next time, send me a comment.]
This has been reported to be “just” a payback for those brave aliens who worked for the Americans, and now face persecution in their home countries. If these were the only aliens involved, most of us would say, well, OK.
That assertion is, however, a lie.
Such aliens would be eligible for Special Immigrant Visas; these guys are not, or they would seek them.
This action is to facilitate the State Dept. bringing in Yet Another Batch of Leftists (YABL, rhymes with rabble and babble), who will be – after a laughably short time – eligible for ALL benefits, including housing, welfare, EBT, as well as the very lucrative “family reunification” that brings in marginally-related and unrelated aliens, for a price.
Can you say Chain Migration?
It is such a process that enabled Ilhan to enter the USA, and to bring in her husband/brother, as well. Even Snopes cannot label that allegation as False, merely smearing it with the label Unproven. Snopes’ efforts to uncover the truth are laughably weak. Even a cursory look at the facts brings up some eyebrow-raising information.
Look, I’ve known many people from the Middle East over the years. In Lakewood, my hometown, and Cleveland, where I spent much of my adult life, I had Arabs as neighbors and friends. Some of them Christian, some of them Muslim (often only weak adherents). I liked them.
One thing I learned is not to trust the surface. Many of them were kind, genial, and seemingly decent persons.
However, shady business practices, including food stamp fraud, selling stolen or outdated merchandise, and rampant immigration fraud were the norm. Yes, NORM.
They didn’t see it as a crime, just helping out a family member or otherwise-allied person. They regularly engaged in marriage fraud. The Catholic ones would do so by coercing their teens to marry someone who couldn’t get a visa the normal way in a civil marriage. After they received their papers, the American was permitted to get a divorce, and marry the one they had wanted to all along. But, the first marriage was “for the family”.
The Muslims had no such concerns about divorce, and would engage in that practice to further their family’s finances and for political alliances.
So, unlike some bloggers, I’m not suggesting Ilhan and her brother or step-brother or half-brother (any of these are possible) engaged in some sort of incestuous relations. This was NOT about sex.
Understand, sex generally wasn’t involved. They would claim it was, for the INS, but this wasn’t about sex. It was about trading favors, paying off debts, getting some cash for investments, and the like.
Today’s immigrants will often have one or more children, just to solidify their claim on America. They are aware that Americans are reluctant to break up families, so having that connection makes them virtually deportation-proof.
Just figured I’d drop a quick screed at Francis’s place:
Also, one of my resolutions… at least one post a week here. Last year was few and far between!
