Socialist Birds of a Feather [with a new postscript]

 

BLM supports cop killerThe people’s protests against the socialist regime running Cuba prompted American socialists to flock to the defense of the Cuban Commies. Among these were the Black Lives Matter Foundation, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), DSA’s superstar AOC, and Bernie Sanders. In so doing, they carried on the disgraceful precedent of the Congressional Black [except for Republicans] Caucus.

Go back to 2009, early in President Obama’s first term. The Congressional Black Caucus took a fact-finding junket to Cuba, where they not only fawned on Fidel but also ignored, covered up by their silence, the plight of black Afro-Cuban prisoners, jailed and abused by the much lighter-skinned regime leaders of European ancestry. The Congressional Black Caucus helped the racist Castro regime with their positive video appearances and quotes.

[T]he Stalinist regime that jailed and tortured the longest suffering black political prisoner in modern history (Eusebio Penalver) rolled out the red carpet for six gullible  members of the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus. All of these U.S. legislators met with “President” Raul Castro while a lucky three secured back-stage passes to meet Fidel himself.

Understand that to surrender even a tad of freedom, a touch of liberty, or a bit of property—whether to climate change, Covid, national security, the “common good” or “society’—based on the decree of a demented, illegitimate president, a narcissistic zealot like AOC, the descendant of a nepotistic lineage of privileged inbreds like Pelosi or Newsom, […]

Welcome to the Smart Girl Politics audio newsletter!

In today’s edition:

Join Jim and Greg as they credit National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar for documenting how President Biden has started far more to the left than he promised during the campaign. They also get a kick out of AOC allies targeting a a new Super PAC at defeating Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema after they refused to kill the legislative filibuster in the Senate. And they have fun with a column from a far left San Francisco teacher, who claims Bernie Sanders demonstrated white privilege with the coat and mittens he wore to the inauguration.

A Wine Snob Reviews the Political Class

 

Nancy Pelosi
Aged over a period of 80 years, Pelosi will strike many political connoisseurs as almost pickled. Imperious, regal, and with an extraordinarily high alcohol content, Pelosi’s bouquet almost washes over you like the tide or the administrative state. Most palates outside Mill Valley will find this varietal has lost a step.

Mitch McConnell
McConnell almost teases you with a laconic nature. With a fragrant bouquet redolent of bourbon and cocaine, McConnell is an excellent choice for anyone whose palate favors character and mastery above all. A superb choice for reshaping the federal judiciary into the originalist mold for at least a generation.

Joe Manchin
Technically a red but with unmistakable blue streaks yielding a kind of wishy-washy purple hue, Manchin is a rarity on the current scene. Widely disliked, Manchin is nevertheless redolent of rich dark coal and finishes delightfully with hints of fiscal sanity and the second amendment.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the effort from House Republicans to kick California Rep. Eric Swalwell off the House Intelligence Committee. They also welcome AOC saying Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should no longer be leaders but she gives a surprisingly interesting answer for why they still are in charge. And Jim and Greg fire back at critics whining that the nations that developed the coronavirus vaccines get to use it first.

On July 21, I posted “BUY-cott Goya Products” in responce to leftist calls to boycott Goya Products, because its CEO had committed the unpardonable sin of of praising President Trump. He had appeared at the White House on July 9 to participate in the White House Prosperity Initiative, to promote educational and job opportunities for […]

Join Jim and Greg as they relish Democrats likely having such a tight majority in the House that it will be tough for many to accept jobs in the executive branch because the vacancies could make it tough for Democrats to get much legislation done. They also hammer musician John Legend for suggesting you’ll do more good donating to Democrats running for U.S. Senate in Georgia than giving to your local food bank. And they update the infighting among Democrats by discussing the latest salvos from Joe Manchin and AOC.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin saying he will not vote to end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate. They also unload on AOC, Jennifer Rubin, Evan McMullin, and other lefties who want to see anyone supporting President Trump’s legal challenges added to lists of people who should be shunned from government, academia, and polite society. And they shudder as the Obamacare architect who thinks people are no longer useful after age 75 is named to Joe Biden’s COVID task force.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoying watching House Democrats point fingers at each other for doing much worse than expected in Tuesday’s elections. Jim tells Republicans to stop airing their arguments about election crimes or irregularities on social media and cable news and bring evidence to court if there are reasons to investigate the vote counting. And they unload on self-important New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman for suggesting Al Gore “took a bullet for the country” by conceding to George W. Bush in 2000.

Ep. 264 – How will the Left react to a Donald Trump victory? Award-winning Filmmaker and NY Times Bestselling Author Dinesh D’Souza discusses how to ‘Beat the Socialism, Corruption and the Gangsterization that Defines the Democrat Party’, why children have not been taught about failures of communism, his latest film Trump Card, Election 2020, AOC, Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders and much more in this long-form interview. Watch the film VOD on your big screen at TrumpCardTheMovie.com.

Karol Markowicz (New York Post, Spectator USA, Time) and Bridget discuss the effect of the pandemic in NYC, how nobody in California seems to be able to connect policies they hate and the people they’re voting for, why large portions of immigrant communities love Trump, looking back and seeing their own blindspots going into 2016, and the best and worst case scenarios for how the 2020 election might go. They cover the future of the Democratic party, why Karol tries to bring up the fact that she’s a conservative very early in a conversation with a new person, whether she fears for her safety being an outspoken conservative in a liberal place, and why she doesn’t worry about what she’s going to tell her grandchildren about who she voted for.

Rob Long is in for Jim again Wednesday. Today, they celebrate the news that the FBI found no evidence of a hate crime in connection to a “noose” found in the garage of Bubba Wallace but that doesn’t stop Wallace and Al Sharpton from insisting something sinister happened. They also slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying the Republican police reform bill is tantamount to them getting away with the murder of George Floyd. And they discuss the primary election results showing another AOC-like Democrat headed to Congress from New York and wonder how America will react to vote counts lasting several days or even weeks come November.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr stepping down from his committee post as the FBI investigation deepens into his coronavirus-related investment decisions. They also assess why Joe Biden keeps moving far left even though he has the Democratic nomination wrapped up. And they recoil as those quick-response COVID tests used by the White House and other places are found to deliver false negatives anywhere from 33-48 percent of the time.

Join Jim and Greg as they slam AOC’s economic lunacy and callously partisan response to Monday’s plummeting oil futures. They also shake their heads as CNN says Kim Jong Un is in grave condition and NBC has him brain dead, while Reuters has him fine just hours later. And they gag as Gayle King of CBS gushes that “everyone know” Stacey Abrams is “extremely qualified” to be Joe Biden’s running mate.

I happened to catch a humorous but insightful comment by Michael Knowles in his Day 14 Lockdown video over at The Daily Wire, and I thought I’d share it with Ricochet. At around 27:30 into the video, in response to the question from someone named Nicholas, “How do you like your 30-day trial of communism?”, […]

I can’t help noticing that hard times bring out the inner totalitarian in many of our elected officials, especially those for whom I did not vote. There was a good deal of discussion and snickering when the oratorical cadences of Mayor Pete seemed to match those of B. H. Obama. It seemed as though Pete […]

Democrat Incumbents’ Fund ‘Primarying’ Their Colleagues

 

This is an interesting case of Democrat infighting. Media star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a program to raise funds for challengers to her Democrat incumbent colleagues. Normally, the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee asks incumbents to contribute campaign funds for general campaigning on behalf of incumbents. Miss AOC is refusing to contribute those funds to the party and instead is helping fund campaigns by those candidates she deems more worthy. Interesting, very interesting.
