The Coronavirus is coming. I’m not sweating it. Its a flu with a slightly higher mortality rate than regular flu. We in the United States have the money and resources to deal with it. We’ll be fine.

Rule of Thumb in thinking about non-Western nations: they are a collection of mafias with UN seats. Don’t think for a moment that non-West nations (outside of a few places like Japan and South Korea) have any concern for their own people or even the slightest hint of decency.

Warren, fading fast in the Democrat primary, is going full anti-Bernie…she’s trying to recapture the Left lane of the Democrat primary, knowing that Biden and Mayor Pete have the Centrist lane. I don’t think it will work – and it won’t work because even Progressives – though they won’t admit it – know she’s a mere liar. The MSM keeps talking her up like she’s something, but the bottom line is that she did, without a doubt, lie about Native American ancestry to gain advantage. She can’t get around that – she’s permanently damaged goods. But, God bless her, she’s going to keep trying…likely because she doesn’t know anything else to do.

Speaking of Democrat primaries – it does look like there’s a real chance of a brokered convention. As for me, I’m still expecting Bernie to do well enough on Super Tuesday that the party starts to fall in line behind him. Remember, policy-wise, there’s no real difference between any of them. The Bernie Bros will shriek if you try to tell them this – sure their man Bernie is pure as the wind-driven snow – but you and I on the right know better: a liberal is a Progressive is a Communist. Only difference is how fast any of them are willing to push it at a given time. So, if Bernie rolls to some big wins, Democrats will just swallow it and move on…even if they know they’ll lose in November because of it. After all, it keeps the Bernie Bros on side and there’s always a chance that even Bernie pulls off the miracle win. Meanwhile, if Bernie flames out, the Democrats will have a solid argument against appearing too radical in 2024.

Bernie is of Jewish ancestry – but I don’t really count him as a Jew. Nor should anyone. After all, back in the days of the USSR when anti-Jewish persecution was common, Bernie sided with the USSR against the Jews. This is just how it is for any Leftist – whatever their nationality, religious background or ethnicity, being Progressive trumps all.

New York City’s crime rate is rising – this in response to the City of New York deciding that being a criminal isn’t a bad thing. I’m serious about this: remember, Progressives. Always understand them – and to Progressives, crime isn’t the result of criminals, but the result of our racist, sexist, homophobic, Capitalist society. To a Progressive, it is wrong to punish the street criminal…the real criminal is the middle class guy getting robbed. You see, if that middle class guy was in the least bit a decent person, he’d be overthrowing the system. As he’s upholding the system, he deserves to get robbed.
