Open Thread

I've always thought New Year's Day was an especially American tradition, full of the optimism and hope we're famous for in our daily lives -- an energy and confidence we call the American spirit. Perhaps because we know we control our own destiny, we believe deep down inside that working together we can make each new year better than the old. - Ronald Reagan

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Marsha Blackburn

Should the government hand everyone $600 dollars of everyone else’s money? Or should it hand them $2,000, as Trump and the Democrats want? The correct answer is neither. Marsha Blackburn gets it:

“Now, we know that what the Democrats are trying to do with this is to put us on a pathway to a guaranteed the minimum income, which is one of their socialist agenda items.”

Blackburn feels that if there is going to cash handed out, it should at least be targeted to those who need it.

“The best stimulus is a job,” she continued. “But they don’t want to open the economy, they don’t want to get children back to school. They would prefer to keep people locked in their houses and out of work” until there are widespread vaccinations for coronavirus.

People have a way of getting used to free handouts. Democrats are counting on it.

Of course, nothing is really free. Those with savings and those living on fixed incomes will pay the bill for Big Government’s largesse in the form of inflation.

Jordan Peterson: Meaning in Responsibility

An antonym of “moonbattery” is “responsibility.” That’s why liberals so loathe and would like to silence Jordan Peterson. He has been preaching responsibility — and audiences fed up with the rot resulting from moonbattery have been receptive.

Georgia Reloaded

Dan Crenshaw stars in a sequel to the excellent Texas Reloaded. It does not disappoint:

If Rep Crenshaw can come all the way from Texas to help put things right, the least patriotic Georgians can do is turn out and vote. Radicalized Democrats taking full control of the federal government at this point in history would be the worst disaster since the Great Depression, if not the Civil War. The future of the country might hinge on the Senate runoffs in Georgia.

AOC’s First Constructive Accomplishment

Since the successful Justice Democrats casting call that made her a Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not done much besides spew alarming Marxist rhetoric and drive jobs out of New York. But at last she has been honored for a constructive accomplishment:

Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue has revealed that democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) call for Democrats to boycott his company’s products over his praise of President Donald Trump actually led to skyrocketing sales so monumental that he named the congresswoman “employee of the month.”

Nice work, AOC. You have done for Goya Foods what Barack Obama did for gun sales.

No one is allowed to say anything nice about Donald Trump. Those who do will be punished by totalitarian bullies like AOC. If only their punishments always blew up in their faces so spectacularly.

Unanue announced AOC’s Employee of the Month Award on the Michael Berry show, as reported at the Daily Wire:

“You know, communism works until you run out of other people’s money to spend. We’re not going to be able to do that. It’s interesting that AOC was one of the first people to step in line to boycott Goya; go against her own people, as supposedly a Puerto Rican woman, to go against people of her own Latin culture. She’s naïve. To some extent I can understand AOC; she’s young; she’s naïve; she doesn’t get it. But you’ve got someone like (Bernie) Sanders, who’s older than us, older than me, and he still doesn’t get it.”

Sanders gets it, all right. The lifelong socialist owns three houses and gets to call the tune Joe Biden plans to tax us to. Marxism has been very very good to Bernie Sanders.

Unanue continues:

“We still have to chat with AOC; I love her. She was actually our Employee of the Month; I don’t know if you know about this, but when she boycotted us, our sales actually increased 1,000%. So we gave her an honorary — we never were able to hand it to her but she got Employee of the Month for bringing attention to GOYA and our adobo. Actually our sales of adobo did very well after she said ‘Make your own Adobo.’”

Unanue is not overtly partisan. He worked with Obama as well as Trump, but didn’t face any boycotts from Republicans. The Party of Tolerance is the one you get punished for crossing.

“Look at that sound,” squeaks AOC.

Kudos to Kitson

Major kudos go to anyone with the courage to swim against the moonbat current. Nowhere is it stronger than in Los Angeles:

Los Angeles’ premier “lifestyle boutique,” Kitson, is going viral for blasting Democratic lawmakers and leftist celebrities with a massive display across their storefront.

One of the L.A.-based stores hung a variety of posters in their front windows depicting their “People of the Year,” which includes Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Hunter Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, actress and activist Alyssa Milano, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and more.

These infamous moonbats are not displayed in a flattering light:

Pace Eric Holder and despite the cultural decay caused by liberalism, we are not a nation of cowards yet — not so long as some have the guts to rebel.

RIP Walter Williams

Let’s join Dinesh D’Souza in lamenting the passing of the great countermoonbat economist Walter Williams:

Having good intentions is so easy, a moonbat can do it. Actually making the world a better place as Walter Williams did is more difficult.

Why Trump Matters

You aren’t just voting for or against Trump. As leftists have made obvious with their theatrical hatred of American heritage, you are voting for or against the Constitution and the way of life it enables. We can have freedom or tyranny, wealth or poverty; the choice is ours.

Liz Wheeler makes the case for getting out there and casting a vote in favor keeping America going:

Western Pride Is Not Racism

The radical leftists who are on the verge of taking over the federal government hate Western Civilization because they hate the values that made it great. To attack it, they conflate pride in the West with racism. For example, Joe Biden has denounced the conspicuously nonracist Proud Boys (or “Poor Boys,” as Biden has called them) as “white supremacists,” on the grounds that their purpose is to stand up for the West. They are right to stand up for it, because Western Civilization is the best thing that ever happened, whatever your race may be.

A piece at sponsor makes some important points on this topic. The cultural values of the West are defined as “open markets, an emphasis on free speech, strong private property rights, an independent, impartial judiciary, and the primacy of the individual over that of the group.” These are the values that made Western Civilization great. Note that progressives aggressively oppose all of them.

Contra the media and academia, this is not just about white people.

Western cultural values have a universal aspect in the sense that they can be applied with success anywhere in the world, that these values are objectively superior to other value sets at maximizing human freedom, quality of life, and potential, and that the belief in this superiority has nothing to do with “racism” in the sense that it is commonly understood by ordinary people.

Evidence for this is the never-ending flood of nonwhites into countries created by whites.

Western values offer equality before the law, limited government, and the many benefits that accrue to everyone thanks to reverence for property rights. This culture allows for the innovation that you will not find in authoritarian countries, and that constantly raises our standard of living. Quality of life is higher in Western countries than anywhere else because our culture works better thanks to our values.

The denunciation of Western Civilization and its champions as “racist” is ironic:

Western nations have, on average, the greatest degree of tolerance and pluralism in the world. … [T]here is no equivalent to the social mobility that Western nations offer diasporic, immigrant and formerly enslaved populations anywhere else in the world. … Western values do not advantage or disadvantage any specific group.

Leftist cultural vandals yap endlessly about slavery, as if this were still a relevant topic. They forget that the West did not invent slavery, but rather almost completely eradicated it.

Read the rest for further confirmation that you are highly justified to take pride in being a part of Western Civilization, regardless of your ancestry. While you’re there, stock up on discount ammunition.

Hearse Tails Biden Campaign Bus

Enthusiasm isn’t the only advantage regular Americans have over MSM-indoctrinated Biden zombies. Creativity also helps counterbalance the edge Big Media/Big Tech gives to Democrats. Biden’s campaign bus, which putters along on a light schedule between his lids and long naps in the basement, has a shadow:

In Houston, one Trump supporter decided to troll the Biden team by driving a hilariously decked-out hearse behind the bus with MAGA-approved branding.

Referring to Democrats’ well-established reputation for voter fraud, the hearse billed itself as the “Official Democrat Cemetery Vote Collector” that was “Collecting Democrat votes one dead stiff at a time.”

When the bus stopped, the hearse reportedly set up shop with a sign that read “Don’t forget 10% for the Big Guy” in reference to the bombshell emails allegedly from Hunter Biden on the family’s corrupt business dealings.

Not just “allegedly” — the validity of the shocking emails has been confirmed. But the media has buried the story, leaving patriotic Americans to disinter it.

At the time of publishing, the Biden bus had reportedly pulled away from their campaign stop after no supporters showed up. The hearse team seemed to be in hot pursuit.

God willing, the hearse will prove an apt metaphor for Biden’s campaign.
