A Family Affair

After putting on a show of comity and fairness, the corruptocrat branch of the Donkey Party aka, the Clinton/Obama Regime. There is no way that cabal was going to give up power and be punted into the night.

The result of this outcome is Bernie Sanders takes it in the shorts, Ellison gets tossed a bone and the Jackass Party will continue on the same downward spiral. Contrary to all the professed sweetness and light, all was not so smooth when the electronic voting devices went missing. Of course this allows for the Old Joe Stalin bit about who counts the votes is more important than who votes.

Tom Perez Elected New DNC Chair

The votes are in, and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez is the new chair for the Democratic National Committee. He wins with 235 votes.

Perez was just one vote short on the first ballot, but secured victory in the second round.

Keith Ellison, who served as Perez’s main opponent, receiving 200 votes, divided Democrats during the campaign, with many party members insisting he was too radical to lead the party, considering his former ties to anti-American organizations and weak stance on U.S.-Israeli relations. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz even threatened to leave the party should he win the nomination. Yet, many progressives insisted Ellison was the only candidate who could truly lead the grassroots movement in the Democratic party. [snip]

This once more seemed to have the puppetry controls of the Clinton machinery at work. Had Ellison won all of the Old Guard.
Establishment hangers on would have been swept out of power; She’d be in Chappaqua hugging trees or searching for old lesbian friends. And Bill, the summer of interns are just a memory anyway.

Show of Shows

Barnum and Baily will have nothing on the show opening and closing tomorrow with the DNC.
Hooboy, the Democrat National Committee is going to hold in the main ring, actually the only ring in the one ring circus, the Greatest Clown Show ever seen in any political arena.

With the DNC moving so far to the Left, most of your father’s Donkeys don’t recognize them as any part of the American party. And they’re not. The whole program have become a Clown show of Socialists/Marxists/Communists that call themselves Progressives.
The Troika wanting to head this Leftists crowd is:
dnc-leaders

Ellison’s platform for the DNC is simple: Impeach Trump. He also might want women to wear burkas and be caned once or twice a day for the hell of it.

What Bernie is doing hanging around with a Muslim is good grist for the mill. Then again, he votes with that anti-semitic crowd called the Jackass party so “go figure!”

The third clown of this triumvirate is Fauxahontas. Purportedly, she’s 1/32 second Indian of the Mulligatawny Tribe of Mumbai, Oklahoma. With all the crazed ideas necessary to fit into that leadership position, she’s a shoe in to Madam Squaw.

The three should command almost 20% of the voting population in the US including the Walking Dead.
Chuckie Schumer, the Senate Mouth, has been going nuts to no avail. One has to believe that a scorched earth policy is the new best plan and he’s got these three to ride point for the death of the Jackass Party. There steeds will be Black Unicorns.

Just who is the enemy?

More and more we can see the open hostility of the media towards anything not liberal America.

You will need correction if your thinking is not governed by the true progressive ideology. Becoming correct is only a matter of watching CNN according to the purists at that temple of correct Marxist thought, although they eschew that label.

Brzezinski: ‘Our Job’ Is to Control ‘Exactly What People Think

Controlling “exactly what people think” is the job of the media, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.

While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.

“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.” [snip]

Ah yes, Dummies! You are too stupid to know what to think. How would you be able to figure out what is news and what is fake news news if we don’t tell you. That is why we are important, to make sure you get only the truth as we know it.

SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.

SCARBOROUGH: “It’s the — it’s the ground noise that he is throwing out there also, whether he is questioning, Mark, the legitimacy of federal judges to do what they have done since Marbury v. Madison. It’s when he says the media is the, quote –”

BRZEZINSKI: “Enemy.”

SCARBOROUGH: “– ‘enemy of the people’, where he sounds like Mussolini or Lenin which obviously causes concern that phrase right there makes him sound more like a dictator in training, when he sends Stephen Miller out and says, basically the president has absolute power, he shall not be questioned.”

Scarborough also accused Trump’s base of having a “blind spot” on the issue of illegal immigration.

“We have an economy, let’s face it, we have an economy that is built on illegal immigration,” Scarborough said. “We have an economy that is built on that. That is why I say why don’t you just legalize it?”

Sounds a bit Orwellian, doesn’t it? Can you spell “TASS”. Can you pronounce “PRAVDA” ?
Both those were organs of the old Soviet Union for dissemination of “truth” according to the State and the only official version which may be spoken.

Precisely what Mika Brzezinski desires for you.

“Management fees would increase under each of these three divestment scenarios because VPIC commingled funds, where the bulk of VPIC’s fossil fuel were held, would have to be restructured into materially higher-cost SMA [Separately Managed Accounts] funds.”

In the previous posting one can see the loss of Return on Investment (ROI) can quickly become (RoI) Return of Investment.

Divestment report: Climate politics hurts pension fund returns

A study conducted for the Vermont Pension Investment Committee gives fresh ammunition to opponents of divestment from oil and gas in state pension funds.

The 63-page report, conducted by independent consulting firm Pension Consulting Alliance, finds that injecting climate change politics into state worker retirement funds harms fund performance and does nothing for the environment.

Last year, Gov. Peter Shumlin pushed for VPIC to divest Vermont’s state pension fund of Exxon Mobil and 200 other energy stocks. That agenda was strongly opposed by Treasurer Beth Pearce and  VPIC Chair Thomas Golonka.

The report highlights five key concerns about divestment, the first being that divestment imposes high costs and fees.

As of June 30, 2016, about 3.6 percent of Vermont’s $3.74 billion pension fund was invested in fossil fuels. Pearce’s office reported in 2014 that the costs to divest would be $134 million, including an initial $8.5 million and another $10 million in lost returns annually.

“The largest measurable explicit costs of divestment to VPIC would be ongoing increased management fees,” the report states. [snip]

Divestment in Vermont has powerful supporters and opponents.

Support for divestment is championed by 350.org, the Vermont Public Interest Research Group, and Shumlin, among others. Groups lined up against divestment include the Vermont Troopers’ Association, Vermont Retired State Employees Association, Vermont League of Cities and Towns and Vermont State Employees Association.

The authors note that divestment from fossil fuels is “a sparsely used strategy among U.S. public pension plans,” and recommends against the strategy: “We believe that VPIC’s significant proxy voting and engagement efforts on climate risk issues at fossil fuel companies, including ExxonMobil, and investment strategies other than divestment, are better suited than divestment for VPIC to manage risks and opportunities posed by climate change within its role as fiduciary of a U.S. public pension fund.”

These individuals, for the most part are socialists, with no background in economics unless it is in re-distributive Progressive policies of “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine” governance.

Then they also believe this:

This kind of stupidity can’t produce a long life.

More Loony leftist nonsense and a response

Sometimes it is wise to take these crazies seriously and threaten to give them what they want, IN SPADES.

The Canadians know how to handle complaints. Here is an example:

A Canadian female liberal wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian Government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter.

She received back the following reply:

National Defence Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg., 15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa , ON K1A 0K2
Canada
Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and
are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.

Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were
heard loud and clear here in Ottawa .. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department
here at the Department of National Defence, to be called ‘Liberals Accept

Responsibility for Killers’ program, or L.A.R.K. for short.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.

Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counselling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.

Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him.

You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I’m sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of respecting his culture and religious beliefs’ as described in your letter.

You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counsellor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.

Cordially,
Gordon O’Connor
Minister of National Defence

They’re the Loony Left

Still crazy after all these years.

There is nothing that can change the mind of an avowed Marxist who is hellbent on believing what they’re told.

California – LARGEST INSANE ASYLUM IN THE WORLD

Interesting that the LA Times did this. Lou Dobbs reported this on CNN and it cost him his job. The only network we would see this on would be FOX. All the others are staying away from it. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, this should be of great interest to you!
Just One State – be sure and read the last part… try for 3 times. This is only one State… If this doesn’t open your eyes, nothing will!

From the L.A. Times:

1. 40% of all workers in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.
(Donald Trump was right)

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals;
>>they are here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in LA are Spanish-speaking.

10. In LA County, 5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County.)

(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States’ annual population growth, (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York), results from immigration. Also, 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

We are fools for letting this continue.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Send copies of this letter, to at least two other people. 100, would be even better.

This is only one State…If this doesn’t open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why Nancy Pelosi wants them to become voters!

Windfall Tax on Retirement Income… Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people “you’re so darn stupid that we’re going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you”. Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. In other words, tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement. This woman is a nut case! You aren’t going to believe this.

Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds)!
Alas, it is true – all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants.
This woman is frightening. She quotes… ‘We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income, (didn’t Marx say something like this?) in our country; and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest. (I’m not rich, are you?)

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:

We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as Americans.

(Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.) ‘Lower your retirement; give it to others who have not worked, as you have’ for your money. Send this on to your friends. I just did! This lady is out of her mind!
