It appears that about 49 million Americans tuned into the SOTU and 76% of those who watched liked what they saw. It will be hard for Democrats to gain leverage for their absurd plans – be it the insane Green New Deal or their continuing conviction that somehow, some way, Trump-Russia is the way to get Trump.
As for that Green New Deal – I agree with those who say that our best tactic is to reject the premise. Don’t argue the stupid details. Reject the very notion that we need a Green New Deal. The premise is that human action is causing environmental change which will certainly be catastrophic to life on Earth. That is a stupid notion: the idea of an idiot or of a person who is running a con to grab power and wealth no one would otherwise give to them. The footsoldiers of the Green New Deal are the idiots – the people pushing it from the top are the con artists. Neither should be allowed so much as the time of day. their entire idea is baseless, corrupt, stupid and cruel.
Senator Rand Paul is calling for hearings into the selective prosecution of Trump officials. In my view, McConnell should empanel a select committee on this. Democrats want to keep up the investigations in the House? Fine: we can’t stop them…but we can bury them under a mountain of investigation, as well. Fire with fire: and as our investigation stands a massively better chance of uncovering criminal actions, the Democrats should fear such a tit for tat operation.
There have been Conservative voices – and not just Never Trump “Conservatives” – saying we should lay off Joy Behar over her use of black face in the past. Such people are fools. The Democrats made the determination 50 years ago that they would fight with any means necessary. So be it: now, we just have to turn it against them. We’ve been playing by rules which were discarded with Johnson was still President. Behar used black face: any Republican who did such a thing would be fired and hounded out of public life. So, Behar must be fired and hounded out of public life – by the Democrat’s definition, she’s a racist and she has to go. And while we do it, just keep telling them: “if you quit, we’ll quit”.
In light of this: a Colorado school teacher who tweeted out threats against the Convington Catholic boys may be fired. There should be no “may” in it. She has to be fired: these people on the left must be instructed that they are no longer permitted to slander us.
Robert Stacy McCain takes note of a guy named Anand Giridharadas. A man who is part of our Elite (attended the same school Chelsea Clinton did, eg). A man who is a pinko as you can get without dressing up like Lenin. But a man who also, it seems, is disgusted by the liberal elites on top of our society. Give it a read – and I’ll be keeping an eye on Anand going forward, because I’m starting to see some on the left who are as fed up with things as we are. They will never agree with us on policy, but that’s fine. We don’t expect everyone to agree with us. Nor do we ever expect to get 100% of what we want to the exclusion of ideas we disagree with. But we all do need to work to destroy our current Ruling Class. It has to go.
