Open Thread

Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) is sounding the alarm about Democrat chances in November…but, there’s an odd wrinkle here: Cuellar’s office was raided by the FBI a little while back and he’s embroiled in a scandal. OTOH, we know that Democrats use the FBI and DOJ to punish political opponents and the last thing Team Pudding Brain wants right now is a Latino Texas Democrat warning that they’re going to get destroyed in November because Latinos are going to vote GOP…and a lot of the reason will be Biden’s Border Crisis.

Democrats are getting alarmed here in Nevada, as well. All 4 of our House seats are up along with 1 Senate seat and the governorship. 3 of 4 House seats are currently Democrat as is the Senate seat and governorship. Democrats thought they had this sewn, don’t you know? With total control of the State government it was Fun Time! Part of their fun was redistricting and the Democrats took their Life Seat (NV-01) which was packed full of Democrats and broke it up a little bit to provide more Democrats in other House districts. That was before gas prices sky rocketed and polling started to show a big shift of Latino voters to the GOP. But now they’re kinda stuck…NV-01 is still a high hill for the GOP to climb but in a Red Wave year it could easily go GOP. Meanwhile, Senator Cortez-Masto (D-Zombie Reid) is a nonentity running against Republican Laxalt who is proving an excellent campaigner and the GOP has two good prospects to run against Governor Sisolak (D-Whatever the DNC Tells Him to Do). Could be some very good news in Nevada this November.

Ron DeSantis does it again. No, not smacking Disney down. Not stopping grooming in kindergarten. No: this time, its limiting tenure as public universities. This sort of thing is small but crucial. Progressives get themselves deep inside and then change everything … and one of the best ways to be “inside” is to be tenured in a university. You are practically untouchable. Its like being a made man in the Mafia. There is a huge argument about whether we should go Trump or DeSantis in 2024. I don’t care which one of them gets it – either is going to be a fighter for us.

Remember the lunatic conspiracy theories about people having their organs removed for transplants? Well, looks like the Conspiracy Theorists were just ahead of the curve. Again. But, really, this is bestial what the Chinese are doing – all very Soylent Green which, along with Rollerball and Network are the three 1970’s movies to most accurately predict the future.

The Abortion Lie Crumbles

So, the Supreme Court refused to block the implementation of Texas’ mild restriction on abortion and the Left is having a meltdown over it. It really is their sacrament – and, truth be told, they have to treat it as one. If there is a lie which underpins all other lies on the Left, it is “abortion on demand”. Reasonable people can disagree over whether or not abortion should be legal and under what circumstances, but “abortion on demand” (and the US is only one of about six nations which has it) is an absurdity on its face. To say that no other consideration should enter into the question of aborting a child other than the mother’s desire is ridiculous.

For one thing, there is a father involved – and abortion on demand cuts him out while leaving him 100% on the hook if the woman decides not to have an abortion. This is something which bothered me even in the days of my pro-choice youth: why should a guy be on the hook if the girl, on her own, can decide to kill the child? I always looked at it in that sense and it was what eventually led me to the pro-life position: a question of simple fairness. If abortion is legal – if it is a right – then it is a human right and the male can decide to abort as well as the female. But, none of that, right? Woman aborts and she’s a hero…guy decides he doesn’t want to have a child and he’s a dead beat dad.

But let’s leave that aside and get to the crux of the matter. The reason abortion must be unrestricted is because if it isn’t then an element of personal responsibility is injected. If under some circumstances the child cannot be disposed of at whim then the entire picture changes and people have to start thinking again.

Now, the Left would tell you that until they graciously came along and liberated women with divorce, birth control and abortion, it was a nightmare time of women being mere breeders for arrogant and cruel men. That women had no rights and could never refuse a man sexual activity. This is all made up drivel, of course. And it was made up very early on by the first crusaders for divorce and birth control and they made the stories up because they needed a hook to get the Ruling Class to go along with it…and there is nothing which will please a Ruling Class more than someone telling them that the peasants are stupid and need to be protected and guided by the Ruling Class.

The story put out was that the poor population was out of control and breeding too much and in order to fix this, they needed to be instructed about sex and given birth control otherwise they would just breed, breed, breed their way to disaster. They seriously held to the view that poor people didn’t know where babies come from. That they couldn’t put two and two together after a while and figure out that shortly after a bit of sweaty action, the woman would often come up pregnant. Like poor people were sitting in their slum with 14 kids roaming around and dad and mom just flabbergasted about how she got pregnant for the 15th time.

This is seriously the underlying intellectual level we’re talking here. This sort of intellect is what supports abortion on demand.

But it is what they held and what they hold today – and it is a lie. It is a lie that human beings are mere animals who have no way to control their sexual appetite and no means of thinking about whom to have sex with and when. And that is what they are afraid of losing, at bottom. They desperately cling to abortion on demand because if it goes, then a whole series of lies goes with it. There isn’t much difference, after all, in telling a woman to just have an abortion and telling a person that they can’t get ahead because they are the victims of racism or what have you. No abortion and no CRT (as it were) and all of a sudden whether or not you’ll have kids and a successful life is entirely up to you. And if people start rising to the challenge of personal responsibility and finding that they can defer children without abortion and succeed in life in spite of the odd jerk, then the entire Leftist project is over.

Open Thread

The Democrats are trying to keep the focus on Liz Cheney, and thus Trump, in order to distract from the massive disaster which is Biden. Prices are going through the roof, the border is back in chaos and our foreign enemies are being kowtowed to. Can’t really talk about that – so, let’s get another interview with Liz who will tell us how horrible January 6th was.

The good news is that most GOPers aren’t playing the game. We know that talking about the “insurrection” is just a dodge…and an attempt to split the GOP. Won’t happen. We’re woke to that.

Texas move to ban “urban camping”. Better known as bums defecating in the streets. Make no mistake about it – the Democrats, and especially the hard Left, wants quality of life to collapse and for chaos to increase – they feel, likely correctly, that people harassed to distraction won’t pay attention to what the Democrats are actually doing.

America is still not having kids. It is a problem all around the world – even the high birth rate countries are dropping like a rock. Just for the record: we don’t have a future if people don’t have kids.
