The Democrats’ 2020 Election Strategy is Now Clear

Joe Biden is a puppet. Bernie Sanders and his “progressive” apparatchiks are clearly pulling the strings. Americans have a decision to make. More here and here.

Even more politically germane than these remarks from the two big-blue states is what Joe Bidensaid from his Delaware porch: “We have an opportunity not just to rebuild the economy but to transform it.” That return-to-normalcy line that got him the nomination was mostly bunk. Mrs. Pelosi’s $3 trillion spending bill is best understood not as a bailout, but a bail-in. It would be a nationalization of the progressive blue-state model of unconstrained spending.

For the past several decades, that model has had two main components, neither of which their state tax bases can support: pension and health benefits negotiated with public-sector unions and a welfare state, principally Medicaid, which by the third law of Democratic thermodynamics can expand to infinity.

Someone’s gotta pay for it, and that someone under the Pelosi plan may soon be the rest of the nation’s taxpayers who don’t live in California, New York, New Jersey or Illinois and who have never voted to take on this unsustainable fiscal burden. Residents of all four states have been fleeing for years. The reigning theory of Democratic governance regards the loss of productive private capacity as irrelevant to their goals.

Pro tip: Whenever you hear a Leftist use the word “invest”, think “waste/spend” because it’s much more accurate.

Margin Of Fraud

I’ve been assured by reliable sources that this never happens.

A former Judge of Elections in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been charged and pleaded guilty to illegally adding votes for Democrat candidates in judicial races in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
On Thursday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced charges against former Judge of Elections Domenick DeMuro, 73, for stuffing the ballot box for Democrats in exchange for payment by a paid political consultant. […]
According to the indictment, the political consultant allegedly solicited payments from Democrat candidates who hired him, classifying them as “consulting fees.” The payments — which ranged from $300 to $5,000 — were then allegedly used to pay Election Board Officials, such as DeMuro, in exchange for those officials illegally adding votes for the consultants’ Democrat candidates.
DeMuro admitted that he illegally added votes for Democrats on Election Day and then certified later that the votes counted were accurate.

Say It Isn’t So, Joe!

Leftists: America’s Dystopian Nightmare

Remember the good old days when Democrats cared about free speech, the rule of law, civil liberties, and due process? Those are ancient times for the political movement that now embraces guilty no matter what, cancel culture, and a totalitarian one-party state that decides all.

In his most recent essay, Matt Taibbi connects several dots to expose 2020 Leftists for what they truly have become:

Whatever one’s opinion of Flynn, his relations with Turkey, his “Lock her up!” chants, his haircut, or anything, this case was never about much. There’s no longer pretense that prosecution would lead to the unspooling of a massive Trump-Russia conspiracy, as pundits once breathlessly expected. In fact, news that Flynn was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller inspired many of the “Is this the beginning of the end for Trump?” stories that will someday fill whole chapters of Journalism Fucks Up 101 textbooks.

Warrantless surveillance, multiple illegal leaks of classified information, a false statements charge constructed on the razor’s edge of Miranda, and the use of never-produced, secret counterintelligence evidence in a domestic criminal proceeding – this is the “rule of law” we’re being asked to cheer.

The same mistake is now being made with civil liberties. Millions have lost their jobs and businesses by government fiat, there’s a clamor for censorship and contact tracing programs that could have serious long-term consequences, yet voters only hear Trump making occasional remarks about freedom; Democrats treat it like it’s a word that should be banned by Facebook (a recent Washington Post headline put the term in quotation marks, as if one should be gloved to touch it). Has the Trump era really damaged our thinking to this degree?

#Democrats #Hypocrites #BelieveAllWomen #Wow

On a positive note, if Richard Komi unblocks his Twitter account on Monday and announces that he now identifies as a woman, Biden has clearly found his perfect running mate!

Uh Oh, Joe!

NYT reports Dem, activist rebellion budding over Reade allegation…

As two more women have come forward to corroborate part of Ms. Reade’s allegation, the Biden campaign is facing attacks from the right and increasing pressure from the left to address the issue. And liberal activists find themselves in a tense standoff with a candidate they want to support but who they say has made little attempt to show leadership on an issue that resonates deeply with their party’s base.

NY Times: Spinning the News to Fit their Narrative

Davey Alba is an apparatchik a technology reporter at the New York Times. She recently tweeted this:

Scott Adams has thoughts (language warning).

P.S. While watching the video, you might also enjoy this earlier portion on the Democrats insisting that “Trump should be replaced by an elderly dementia patient with credible #MeToo accusations”.
