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.

Watermelon Investing

“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.”

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.
