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.

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.

Well what do you know…

…there is a law allowing Trump to shut off immigration from certain countries and deport those deemed inimical to the USA.

teachingWouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the presidential campaign, if one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, D.C., ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?”
During the campaign season, Trump was criticized for suggesting that the country could deport anyone considered to be hostile to America.

The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things,
being un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.

Congressmen and senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, surprise, surprise!”

It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the president, whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

“The president may, by proclamation and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens, immigrants or non- immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

Who was president when this was passed? Democrat Harry Truman.
Who do you suppose last used this process? Democrat Jimmy Carter,
no less than 37 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States.

But Carter actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation
of their visas and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

So, what do you say about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democratic senators, representatives and the Obama Administration?

Isn’t that terrible? Good Ole Jimmuh, God fearin’, home building Prez of the people heaving all those ragheads out of the country. That’s worth another can of Billy beer.

But there is a bit more. And it is quite important, to wit: One could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims should or could be refused immigration to OUR country.

Climate Foibles

For those convinced that Climate Change is is the cause of insufficient taxation, heavy carbon usage and the election of Trump as President, they now will point to the sudden eruption of sunspots as a further death of Gaia. Here’s the imagery they want to use to bolster their case.

The Sunspot Number

Scientists track solar cycles by counting sunspots — cool planet-sized areas on the Sun where intense magnetic loops poke through the star’s visible surface.

Counting sunspots is not as straightforward as it sounds. Suppose you looked at the Sun through a pair of (properly filtered) low power binoculars — you might be able to see two or three large spots. An observer peering through a high-powered telescope might see 10 or 20. A powerful space-based observatory could see even more — say, 50 to 100. Which is the correct sunspot number?

There are two official sunspot numbers in common use. The first, the daily “Boulder Sunspot Number,” is computed by the NOAA Space Environment Center using a formula devised by Rudolph Wolf in 1848:

R=k (10g+s),

where R is the sunspot number; g is the number of sunspot groups on the solar disk; s is the total number of individual spots in all the groups; and k is a variable scaling factor (usually <1) that accounts for observing conditions and the type of telescope (binoculars, space telescopes, etc.). Scientists combine data from lots of observatories — each with its own k factor — to arrive at a daily value.[snip]

And there yo have it!
People who have nothing better to do than burn out their retinas by staring at the sun with a pair of binoculars, count sunspots for you, add them up and tell you the world is ending.

Someone has to do it.
