Here's an irony for you: Tobacco may save the world
By Andrea Widburg

One fascinating thing about COVID-19 is how it's turned every leftist theory and belief system upside-down. All the things leftists have advocated have only made us more vulnerable to epidemic disease. Now, in a supreme irony, there's a possibility that one of the things they most hate — tobacco — will ride to the rescue.

COVID-19, in many ways, may prove to be the undoing of leftism. Here's a short list of all the leftist ideas that are taking a beating thanks to the pandemic:

Globalism: It turns out that interconnectedness is dangerous and that international organizations, such as the WHO, are intellectually corrupt and in thrall to totalitarian governments.

Open Borders: Countries around the world, including those within the European Schengen zone, are slamming their borders shut. Even Mexico again wants a working border with the United States.

Global Warming: The virus seems vulnerable to warmer, wetter climates, which is what we'd have more of if global warming were actually a thing.

Urbanization: Contrary to the leftist desire to pack people into cities (ostensibly to beat climate change but, in fact, to increase population control), dense urban areas are Petri dishes for COVID-19.

Public Transportation: For decades, the left has waged war against the comfort and convenience of cars because cars are not green. Cars may not be green, but they are clean, unlike public transportation, AKA a Petri dish on wheels.

Re-usable Bags: I've long called them Salmonella Sacks because using them drastically increases the spread of E. coli and salmonella. It turns out that the plastic bags that leftist governments all over America are banning (because Africa and Asia put them into rivers and oceans) are safer in pandemics.

China: Democrats screamed when Trump tried to decrease our dependence on China. He was correct to do so. Not only did China's Belt and Road project seed COVID-19 all over the world, but China's also sitting on most of the world's drug manufacturing. Yikes!

Reality may shatter another leftist shibboleth. The left has been waging war on tobacco for a long time. Before I go farther with this, let me say that I think smoking or chewing tobacco is a health risk because the connection between cancer and heart disease is too strong to deny. I also hate the smell, so I bitterly resent being on the receiving end of secondhand smoke.

However, the left's war on cancer is so vicious that it goes after vaping and e-cigarettes, which should fall squarely in the camp of letting people make their own decisions. Also, leftists are hypocritical because of their unwavering support for marijuana, which, when smoked, also causes lung damage.

Given their fanatic hatred for tobacco, leftists are likely to find horrifying the thought that Big Tobacco claims to have found within the tobacco leaf a vaccine for COVID-19:

Corona Virus / Praise for Trump but not from media
« on: March 30, 2020, 12:17:39 PM »
as they politicize Covid19 to the level of their Russia Collusion Epic Fail...and they will fail again.

Michael Reagan leads praise of Trump’: ‘I’ve never seen any POTUS even my father …’
You’d never know it watching most national news outlets in America, but President Donald Trump is doing a remarkable job of rising to the occasion as the nation faces an unprecedented national emergency.


That’s according to those who look on absent an agenda.


Fixated on the November election, the Trump-hating media is busy playing a game of “gotcha” with the president, having weaponized the coronavirus pandemic on a scale comparable to the Russian collusion hoax.


Yet, in the face of the crisis brought on by the Chinese virus COVID-19, which has shut down the economy on a scale never before seen, the president continues to rise above the toxic media negativity and meet the challenge head on.


While the press will tell you differently, the facts show that Trump has assembled a quality team of experts to respond to the pandemic and that he is not only listening to them, but largely following their advice, even when he wants to go in a different direction. An example of this was seen Sunday when the president announced that he was extending social distancing guidelines through the end of April, even though he has hoped to reopen the economy by Easter.


I agree. Best of his presidency. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/GtB0qrxjQl

Polling shows that most Americans approve of the job the president is doing, as he stands before the nation each night at the White House briefings, providing updates on the latest developments and fending off one hostile reporter after another.




A performance that earned Trump high praise from Michael Reagan, son of former President Ronald Reagan.


Reagan tweeted: “I’ve never seen any POTUS even my father that could do a Q&A like [Trump] and have a grasp of every questions asked without using notes..This is why we hired a business person to be president. Public Private partnership is going to save us.”


I’ve never seen any POTUS even my father that could do a Q&A like trump and have a grasp of every questions asked without using notes..This is why we hired a business person to be president. Public Private partnership is going to save us
— Michael Reagan (@ReaganWorld) March 29, 2020

The briefings provide President Trump with the opportunity to speak directly to the American people, without the liberal media filter.

A tactic that has proven to be effective, prompting many on the left to diminish the nightly events, with CNN and MSNBC reportedly agonizing over having to air them.




The remarkable thing about these briefings is that Trump is raked over the goals by many in the media for daring to give the American people a reason to hope — which is almost as unprecedented as the impact coronavirus has had on the country.


Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley knows real leadership when she sees it.


“While some choose to criticize, I know @realDonaldTrump, @VP, and all of the members of the corona virus task force are working long hours to do the best they can for the American people,” Haley tweeted. “We should all want them to succeed. We should all be grateful for their leadership. ❤️🇺🇸

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:


You know Trump is doing a great job when the media reverts back to "TRUMP IS RACIST!!!"
He is hitting home runs with the American people–and the press cannot stop him.

You’ve been doing a great job combatting this crisis. Too bad the Democrats are only focused on obstructing your great work and trying to tear you down! We need to #TakeBackTheHouse and work together.

I have been seeing a lot of people saying this was the best speech/press conference of his presidency about numerous press conferences lately. @PlanetTyrus
— Ryan Moore (@RyanMoore) March 30, 2020

The guy is in his 70s and he’s running circles around the media. People that can’t get past his “nature” are fools. He’s the real deal.
— Chad Hassler (@chadhassler) March 29, 2020



It is so calming to hear a clear voice about exactly what I’ve been thinking. I feel safe, even with this horror happening around us, when I listen to @POTUS daily briefings. He’s in control. He thinks like a successful businessman sitting at the helm, organizing as he delegates
— Sherry Kerdman (@sherry_kerdman) March 30, 2020

I have to say, I thought the same thing. The immediate recognition of where a question is going is something to behold. I know from years of instructing that it is only when you are 100% focused on the topic can you master it like that.

Corona Virus / Former clinton staffer wishes death
« on: March 28, 2020, 10:29:33 PM »
by coronavirus to  Trump supporters.  Wow.....the left...they're something alright!   LOLOL

 

Via Twitchy:

The Western New York regional director for both Sens. Hillary Clinton and Kirsten Gillibrand has lost her job at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute after telling Trump supporters on Facebook that if COVID-19 is just a hoax they should refuse ventilators and just “chew some ibuprofen” if they’ve contracted the virus.

The Buffalo News reports that Laura Krolczyk, Roswell Park’s vice president for external affairs, was fired after an investigation into her remarks, while a co-worker, Lisa LaTrovato, is on leave for her comments, which were publicized by Michael Caputo.

It has been a very long time since Americans last saw such a clear distinction between the considerable leadership qualities of their president, and the shameless political maneuverings of an opposition party constantly lusting for power. Let us review exactly what has happened in this country over the past two months, vis-a-vis the coronavirus pandemic.

On January 29, President Donald Trump created a White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate the federal government's response to the virus outbreak and to keep the American people as informed about it as possible.

At that time, you might recall, congressional Democrats were giving precisely ZERO attention to the coronavirus threat. They had not held even a single hearing — for even a single moment — about the matter. Instead, they had spent the preceding four months entirely obsessed with one agenda item: impeaching President Trump and trying to remove him from office. The Senate impeachment trial, which had commenced on January 21, was still in high gear. Since the previous September, the faces of Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, and a host of other Democrats had become fixtures on every television screen in America as they salivated over the smell of political blood. They talked about nothing but impeachment, as their normal legislative duties were all but forgotten. Coronavirus was, quite literally, the last thing on any of their minds.

Two days later, on January 31, President Trump formally declared coronavirus to be a public health emergency and he implemented a ban on travel from China to the United States. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci later noted that “the very timely decision on the part of the president to shut off travel from China” had “absolutely” gone “a long way” toward limiting the number of coronavirus infections in the U.S.  “We did it early,” said Fauci, “and as it turned out, there were relatively few cases, in the big picture of things, that came in from China. Unfortunately … in European countries they didn't do that [ban travel from China], and they got hit really hard.... When the infection burden shifted from China to Europe, we did the same thing. We shut off travel from Europe, which again was another safeguard to prevent influx from without, in.” Also by Fauci's telling, the Trump administration's “coordinated response” to the crisis — dating back to “the beginning [when] we [first] recognized what this [virus] was” — had been undeniably “impressive.” “I can't imagine that, under any circumstances, anybody could be doing more,” said Fauci.

But Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden failed to recognize any value in Trump's actions. Instead, he saw a golden opportunity to inject his campaign with a bit of life by doing what he does best: branding a political opponent as an out-of-control bigot. On February 1 — just one day after Trump had announced his China travel restriction — Biden depicted the president as a racist whose heart was filled with hatred for Asian people. “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” said the former vice president.

Notably, it would not be until four days later — on February 5 — that the Democrats' failed impeachment trial in the Senate would finally draw to a close. That was the same day that the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs held its very first coronavirus hearing.

In subsequent weeks, President Trump announced further travel restrictions on certain global hot spots where coronavirus was becoming increasingly widespread — namely Iran, South Korea, and eventually, all of Europe. American citizens returning from travel-restricted countries began to be routed to specific airports, where they could be properly screened and, if necessary, isolated. Eventually, in March, the president officially closed both the southern and northern borders of the United States, so as to prevent the unnecessary influx of any further coronavirus cases from Mexico or Canada.

But at that very same moment in time, a host of Democrats and their supporters suddenly became quite enamored of a talking point that had recently been floated by Communist China's foreign ministry: the notion that it was somehow “racist” for anyone to make reference to coronavirus as a phenomenon of Chinese origin. Joe Biden, true to form, latched on to the Beijing propaganda and suggested that Trump's decision to describe the pathogen as “a foreign virus” or “a Chinese virus” was evidence of the president's … yes, you guessed it, racism and xenophobia. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton jumped aboard the bandwagon as well: “The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis.”

In conjunction with the Trump administration's around-the-clock efforts to accelerate the development of coronavirus diagnostic capabilities, treatments, and vaccines, on February 29 the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued emergency approval for the development of new commercial coronavirus tests. To enable this goal to be realized as quickly as possible, President Trump instructed the agency to dramatically cut the bureaucratic red tape that traditionally had stood in the way of swift action. Meanwhile, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) provided large sums of money to help accelerate the production of diagnostic tests. Trump also issued emergency orders that allowed HHS “to immediately waive provisions of applicable laws and regulations to give [all] healthcare providers maximum flexibility to respond to the virus and care for patients.” And on March 16, the National Institutes of Health announced the start of a clinical trial aimed at creating a coronavirus vaccine — representing one of the fastest vaccine-development launches in the history of medicine.

But alas, Joe Biden was unimpressed. “The Obama-Biden Administration set up the White House National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense,” he boasted, “to prepare for future pandemics like COVID-19” — the disease caused by the coronavirus. “Donald Trump eliminated it [the Directorate], and now we're paying the price.” Trump's “draconian cuts,” said Biden, were now costing people their lives.

Not surprisingly, Biden's very serious charge caught the media's attention on a grand scale. Too bad it was an unadulterated lie. Former National Security Council (NSC) official Tim Morrison, who was the senior director for counter-proliferation and bio-defense at the NSC when Trump's “draconian cuts” had supposedly occurred, explains that the office in question was simply combined with others in a reorganization that “left the bio-defense staff unaffected.” “What actually happened,” says the American Spectator, “was that the president streamlined the bloated NSC, reorganizing some sections to accomplish that goal. In that process, three departments with roughly the same mission were consolidated.” Morrison painstakingly laid out these facts in an op-ed published by the Washington Post, where he not only praised the president for his efforts to “finally create real accountability in the federal government’s expansive bio-defense system,” but also derided critics for having “misconstrued or intentionally misrepresented” the facts regarding Trump's action.

On March 4, HHS announced that it was going to purchase 500 million N95 respirators for the Strategic National Stockpile. A week later, President Trump signed a memorandum directing his administration to make general-use face masks available to healthcare workers. And six days after that, on March 17, the Department of Defense, in response to a request by the president, announced that it would be providing 5 million additional respirator masks as well as 2,000 specialized ventilators.

But Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg lamented that many Americans would tragically have to “pay a heavy cost” for “the president’s management incompetence.” Former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine likewise derided Trump for his “massive missteps that have led to the United States being so far behind other nations in the world” in responding to the crisis. 

On March 5, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created new billing codes for coronavirus tests, so as to facilitate accurate tracking of the public health response. The following day, President Trump signed legislation securing $8.3 billion for coronavirus response efforts — money that would cover the costs of things like public lab testing, isolation and quarantine initiatives, the sanitization of public areas, and vaccine research. And a week after that, Trump officially declared a national emergency, which freed up an additional $42 billion to fund the cause.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer decided that the best way they could now help the American people rally their energies to fight the pandemic, would be to release a joint statement declaring that “President Trump continues to manufacture needless chaos within his administration, and it is hampering the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.”

In an effort to be responsive to the needs of American businesses and their employees, President Trump met with executives from the banking, health insurance, pharmaceutical, airline, grocery store, and retail store industries, among others. On March 10, he urged Congress to pass a payroll tax cut. That same day, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) — in fulfillment of “a top priority for President Trump and this Administration” — announced new flexibilities that would allow meal-service programs to remain active even while schools were closed due to coronavirus. And CMS, after meeting with President Trump and Vice President Pence, announced that Medicare Advantage and Part D plans could now waive co-payments for coronavirus tests and treatment.

But according to recent Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer, “Trump’s incompetence” in dealing with the pandemic was akin to “a neon sign going like, ‘I stink at my job. Yeah, I am a dummy! Ok?’ by Donald Trump.”

Election 2020 / Biden's memory is ONE problem
« on: March 25, 2020, 10:34:49 PM »
Biden's Memory Isn't the Only Problem
It's his lies.
Wed Mar 25, 2020 Larry Elder 39
 
The fact that former Vice President Joe Biden, now on his third try for the presidency, remains the last "moderate" standing says more about his now-vanquished rivals than about Biden. The same media that post running tabs on President Donald Trump's "lies" ignore, downplay or otherwise dismiss Biden's gaffes, memory lapses and frequent incoherence.

He's Uncle Joe, the regular guy from Scranton, Pennsylvania, who understands the common man. So what if he says, without proof, that he worked to "desegregate restaurants and movie houses of Wilmington, Delaware"? So what if he says since 2007, "150 million people" — almost half of the U.S. population — "have been killed" due to gun violence?

So what if he boasts about his "arrest" in South Africa for supposedly attempting to visit Nelson Mandela, an effort Mandela allegedly later thanked Biden for attempting? Never mind that none of it is true — not the arrest, not the attempted visit and not the thank you from Mandela. According to the Daily Beast: "Biden finally admitted that the story was much different than he'd initially described, saying he told police while on a congressional delegation to South Africa that he was 'not going to go in that door that says white only' and separate from his black colleagues." And so what if Biden, who voted for the Iraq War resolution and publicly accused Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein of possessing weapons of mass destruction, now claims he "didn't believe (Saddam Hussein) had those weapons of mass destruction"?

More disturbingly, Biden lied on at least two occasions about a man named Curtis C. Dunn. Dunn was the tractor-trailer driver who, in 1972, tragically struck and killed Biden's wife and his infant daughter. Along with many other news outlets, the Huffington Post, in 2008, described the accident this way: "Delaware's Senator-elect would face a more difficult challenge soon after his election, when a drunk driver struck the car carrying his family, killing his wife Neilia and daughter Naomi and severely wounding sons Hunter and Beau."

Based on Joe Biden's account, the Huffington Post got it right. Dunn was driving drunk. After all, in a 2001 speech at the University of Delaware, Biden said, "An errant driver who stopped to drink instead of drive and hit — a tractor-trailer — hit my children and my wife and killed them." But the then-Delaware prosecutor, now a judge, who investigated the accident says, "The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver (Dunn), is incorrect." Furthermore, the tractor-trailer driver had the right of way, and Dunn immediately got out of his truck and tried to render assistance. He was no drunk driver.

Disturbed by Biden's drunk-driver version of the accident, Pamela Hamill, Dunn's daughter, wrote to Biden. The Newark Post wrote:

"In 2001, (Hamill) wrote a heartfelt letter to Biden expressing her father's profound grief after hearing Biden make a post Sept. 11 speech in which he told the audience that, given his history, he could empathize with victims.

"'Growing up, my dad never talked about it. He always got very solemn around Christmastime because the anniversary was Dec. 18, and he never wanted to celebrate the holidays,' Hamill said. 'When newspapers had anniversary articles (about the crash), we hid them from dad.'

"Biden responded in a handwritten note, which, in part, reads, 'All that I can say is I am sorry for all of us and please know that neither I or my sons feel any animosity whatsoever.'"

Biden, it appears, got the message. Both families suffered a terrible tragedy. Why add to the pain by falsely portraying the remorseful Curtis Dunn as a drunk driver?

But a few years later, Biden did it again.

In a 2007 speech at the University of Iowa, Biden said: "Let me tell you a little story. I got elected when I was 29, and I got elected November the 7th. And on Dec. 18 of that year, my wife and three kids were Christmas shopping for a Christmas tree. A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly, and killed my daughter instantly, and hospitalized my two sons, with what were thought to be at the time permanent, fundamental injuries."

In 2008, Hamill demanded that Biden make a public apology. Hearing nothing from Biden, she sent him a registered letter. The next year, after an accurate CBS television report on the accident, Hamill said she received a phone call from Biden. Hamill told Politico: "He apologized for hurting my family in any way. So we accepted that — and kind of end of story from there."

Joe's calling card is decency, an affable man without a malicious bone in his body. Yet he allowed Dunn, who died in 1999, to go to his grave having been falsely shamed by Biden as a drunk driver responsible for the death of Biden's wife and newborn daughter. What "decent" man does that?

Corona Virus / Obama depleted med masks AND
« on: March 24, 2020, 06:26:40 PM »
DID NOT REPLENISH!!!


Oops. Paging media…

Via Washington Examiner:

The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times.

The Trump administration is scrambling to replenish a stockpile of protective medical gear for healthcare workers and patients as the coronavirus sweeps across the nation. N95 respirator masks are one of the most needed medical supplies amid the outbreak.

The George W. Bush administration published the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza plan in 2005, which called on the federal government to distribute medical supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile governed by the Health and Human Services Department in the event of an outbreak.

In 2009, the H1N1 outbreak hit the United States, leading to 274,304 hospitalizations, 12,469 deaths, and a depletion of N95 respirator masks.

Electronic Surveillance / Lefty Profs worried students

will share lectures with 'right wing sites'.      Why?  you got something to hide??   


Professors worried students will share lectures with ‘right wing sites’

The Wuhan Virus has turned Regressive professors—those that support Warren, Sanders and Biden to be afraid of their students. Now that classes are online, that means their lectures can easily be captured. Every time they use a math class to denounce the President, they will be caught. Making phony statements about the environment racism, and unions will be caught online—and distributed. The make hate speech against males, Jews and others—they will be outed.

“Professors across the country are taking to social media to express their concern over being forced to deliver their course lectures online amid the coronavirus outbreak, sharing with each other tips on how to limit the number of people who are able to see what they’re teaching students, and criticizing “right wing sites” and even Campus Reform, specifically.

Texas Christian University Associate Professor of Political Science Emily Farris tweeted Thursday, “if you are recording a lecture on anything controversial, be prepared for right wing sites to ask students to share it.” Campus Reform reached out to Farris via Twitter Direct Messaging to allow her the opportunity to further explain her comments or to clarify. She later blocked the author of this article on Twitter”.

No need for students to tape their professors—the Internet will do it for them. No wonder these mediocre haters are worried. They should be.

Professors across the country are expressing concern over courses being moved online as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

One professor expressed concern that “right wing sites” could expose what is being taught in college courses.

LaSalle University Assistant Professor of Public Health Christen Rexing replied to Farris’ tweet, asking why others could find topics such as “gun safety, women’s health, elections, etc.” to be “controversial, as they are “evidence-based.”

“Seems like the flood gates could open,” Rexing commented in response to courses moving online.

University of North Carolina political science graduate student Stephanie Shady also weighed in, saying, “Annnnd I just realized that the second half of my course focuses on public opinion towards and politicization of immigration. This will be interesting.” Another user with the Twitter name “Prof CWO” replied “Sigh, I teach about white nationalism and this has been my biggest fear since we began transitioning to online instruction.”



Columbia University political science professor Jeffrey Lax said he has been “thinking about” how students would be able to record classes.


The radical left will stop at nothing to intimidate conservative students on college campuses. You can help expose them. Find out more »


Trinity College Associate Professor of Political Science Isaac Kamola who, as Campus Reform previously reported sought to hire a “Campus Reform Early Responder,” specifically mentioned Campus Reform in his reply to Farris.


“If Campus Reform harasses you or someone you know, the best response is to ‘follow the money.’ Campus Reform receives $1.4 million from the Leadership Institute, a Koch-funded organization designed to delegitimize academics they consider too left. They are not a new [sic] source,” Kamola tweeted.


A user whose website says they are a history professor at a “community college in North Texas” wrote, “I’m taking steps to limit this but nothing is foolproof.”


Farris asked how Gunter was working to ensure her lectures are not made public, to which Gunter responded with one tip for her colleague.


“Instead of posting videos direct to LMS (which would then own them) I’m posting links to the videos on youtube. The videos themselves are ‘unlisted’ meaning you can’t find them in a search or if you go to my page-only if you have the direct link. Doesn’t stop link sharing though,” Gunter said.

Democrats Are Really Bad People

People tend to come together in moments of crisis, most

24 Mar 2020 ~~ By Derek Hunter

People tend to come together in moments of crisis, most people anyway. There’s always that selfish jerk in a zombie movie interested in grabbing the wads of cash or something else they’d always wanted but couldn’t get before everything went to hell, and it usually costs them. Democrats are that selfish guy. And while it varies what the cost is in the movies – either his life or the life of someone else – in the case of coronavirus, let it be the political lives of every Democrat, because they truly are bad people.

~~Snip~~
The words necessary to accurately describe how opportunistic and disgusting the behavior of Democrats has been over the third coronavirus bill has been are not fit for a family audience. Take every four-letter word you can imagine, square it, and create a few new ones and you’ll be close to describing people who see one Republican Senator diagnosed with coronavirus and 4 others in self-quarantine because of possible exposure as “leverage.”

The shame that Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Chris Murphy, and all the rest should feel (but don’t) must never be forgotten, and they should never be allowed to hide from it. Saving the economy of the United States from collapse is not the venue to insist on “Green” agenda items and payoffs to unions. Yet these piles of human garbage are counting on a few things they know will give them cover in order to play this game of Russian Roulette…with the gun to the heads of Americans.

~~Snip~~
When presented with a choice to help the American people, Democrats prioritized THEIR people over all people, their agenda over the good of nation; they drew a line in the sand to give money to their donors, to push unrelated agenda items that will excite their base, and tell everyone else they can go to hell. No, they can. They deserve to, because they are truly bad people.



Comment:

Several years ago, I identified 'Democrats' as Progressive Marxist Socialist/DSA Leftists. Even Congresswoman Pelosi identified herself as a Progressive once celebrating the 100 years of 'Progressive' politics in America.

More and more citizens are beginning to see the truth about "Democrats" and the co-conspirator MSM. They are composed of special interest mobs, drug users, sexual deviants, insider traders and tax evaders. They seldom donate to charities and they are always first in line for the handouts. Pretty much the scum of the earth.


Their latest actions in the face of the latest crisis has once again shown their true ideological self aggrandizing ways. They have no true allegiance to their constituents nor to this country.

Many of us ask why 'Democrats' have refused to work in a bipartisan way during this latest biological and economic crisis .

Rather than step up and work together with the President they have gone out of their way to exacerbate the situation.

Indeed, what what Fascist Progressive policies does your average Republican voter favor? Infanticide, conscripted unionization, gun confiscation, affirmative action, rapacious taxation, illegal foreign invasion? No my frontal lobotomized supporters. The average Republican voter is usually forced to vote for the lesser of two evils, while your type enthusiastically votes for evil, two or three times in the States that feature voter fraud.

Corona Virus / THIS is what Pelosi is doing to harm

the American People needing help right now.

Tom Cotton

@SenTomCotton

Families and businesses need help now to survive the China virus pandemic.

But @SpeakerPelosi walked away from negotiations to write her own bill, full of absurd provisions completely unrelated to the crisis at hand.

Here’s what Speaker Pelosi is demanding while Americans suffer:


Corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards at companies receiving assistance
Bailing out all current debt of postal service

Required early voting

Required same day voter registration

10k bailout for student loans

For companies accepting assistance, 1/3 of board members must be chosen by workers

Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining


Full offset of airline emissions by 2025

Greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights

Retirement plans for community newspaper employees

$15 minimum wage at companies receiving assistance

Permanent paid leave at companies receiving assistance


If our filthy lying fourth estate were actually doing its JOB, Americans would be lighting up the switchboard for democrat Congressmen  and senators.  Or we'd be getting out the pitchforks and heating up the tar.

as Charlottesville.........


In their desperate push to erase American history, the far-
left liberals in charge of Charlottesville, Va. have announced
they will not be celebrating the birthday of founding father
Thomas Jefferson this year and in subsequent years as well.


Instead of celebrating Jefferson's birthday on Apr. 13, the
city decided to celebrate Liberation and Freedom Day on
March 3, a date that commemorates the freeing of slaves.


Jalane Schmidt, a leftist professor at the University of
Virgina said, "We're not going to forget Mr. Jefferson, but
we prioritize the emancipation of slaves over his birthday."


https://bigleaguepolitics.com/anti-w...sons-birthday/


So let me see if I got this right, this professor and other
liberals from Virginia believe its more important to prioritize
the emancipation of slaves over the emancipation of our
nation over the king of England's rule as carried out by one
of our founding fathers (Thomas Jefferson).

Democrats pollute everything they touch.
