Pelosi Is Losing It Too

Maybe we shouldn’t be terrified that nothing comes out of Joe Biden off-teleprompter except senile gibberish. After all, no one expected him to actually be in charge. They call it “ObamaCare” for political reasons, but Nancy Pelosi was the driving force who created Obama’s supposed signature achievement. She is probably still wearing the pants in the party, considering the leadership vacuum in the White House. As noted earlier,

Pelosi is #3 in the command structure and the only one in the top three with an IQ above room temperature, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris being idiot stooges apparently chosen in the belief that they would be easy to manipulate.

Like Biden, she is a leftist and corrupt, but despite being 82 years old she is at least mentally coherent enough to — hold on…

Yeah, we’re in trouble.

Dems Confirm Inflation Is Intentional

Democrats have created crippling inflation through massive wasteful spending and phony climate change fanaticism. Now they impose a blowout bill to throw both into overdrive. The effect this will have on inflation would be obvious to a child. In the spirit of the Democrat instruction manual 1984, they call the bill the Inflation Reduction Act.

In the same spirit, they named a bill designed to further desecrate marriage the “Respect for Marriage Act.”

The Daily Signal observes the obvious:

With inflation hitting 9.1% in June, this is a stagflationary economy. Inflation-adjusted wages for the average American worker have fallen by nearly $3,400 since President Joe Biden took office. …

The government’s policies over the last two years have been a perfect recipe for the highest inflation in four decades: trillions of dollars in government spending financed by the Federal Reserve’s printing presses coupled with lockdowns, new regulations, a war on energy, and anti-work programs that drove down supply. …

The so-called Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, in reality, only would add to the inflationary pain families are already feeling thanks to hundreds of billions in new government spending and job-destroying tax hikes.

Democrats tell us to look at the bright side: raising our taxes will supposedly counteract the inflationary spending.

Unfortunately, the Inflation Reduction Act doubles down on the same irresponsible fiscal policy that has caused inflation: All of the new government spending is upfront, while the deficit-reducing revenues are backloaded.

The result would be higher short-term deficits and higher inflation.

In the long term, the taxes will prevent economic recovery. The inevitable effect is too obvious not to be intentional. Poor people are easier to rule.

The Inflation Reduction Act would even advance the radical Green New Deal agenda, spending an astonishing $369 billion in the name of “decarbonizing all sectors of the economy.” Biden’s anti-fossil fuel policies have already cost us dearly, driving up prices.

Fossil fuels are the lifeblood of any modern economy. Without them, everything will stop and we will starve. Liberals cannot “decarbonize” the economy without provoking the violent overthrow of the government. However, they can waste enough money to drive inflation into the stratosphere. Debasing American currency makes it easier to make payments on the debt they are running up.

Because American currency was relatively sound before the likes of Joe Biden took control of the federal government, the dollar is the world’s reserve currency. Inflation forces people throughout the world to pay for Democrat spending, so long as they hold American currency — which they won’t do for long.

Calling a bill that will obviously push inflation to new heights the “Inflation Reduction Act” goes beyond Orwellian. It is a finger in the eye of regular Americans. They may as well call it the “We Are Destroying Your Lousy Country on Purpose and You Can’t Stop Us Act.”

There is no climate crisis.

Even NPR Notices Ukrainian Corruption

Ukrainian corruption is so conspicuous that even the moonbats at NPR wonder where our money is going:

As it presses ahead with providing tens of billions of dollars in military, economic and direct financial support aid to Ukraine and encourages its allies to do the same, the Biden administration is now once again grappling with longstanding worries about Ukraine’s suitability as a recipient of massive infusions of American aid.

Ukraine is characterized by what NPR calls a “history of rampant corruption and shaky governance.”

Zelenskyy’s weekend firings of his top prosecutor, intelligence chief and other senior officials have resurfaced those concerns and may have inadvertently given fresh attention to allegations of high-level corruption in Kyiv…

This isn’t the first time that firing the top prosecutor has been an issue in Ukraine. Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin wanted to investigate corruption at Burisma, which was shoveling mountains of money at Joe Biden’s bagman Hunter. Biden famously bragged that he pressured the Ukrainian government to fire Shokin by threatening to withhold $1 BILLION in American taxpayer money.

We have this on video:

America is currently controlled by the same sort of people who run Ukraine. No wonder Democrats are so fond of Ukrainian flags.

Our government has already transferred $billions upon $billions to Ukraine (much of which has already gone missing). Presumably we are buying Ukrainian silence on dealings with corrupt American politicians like Joe Biden. It is also possible that, as with money doled out to Planned Parenthood, a percentage is kicked back to Democrats. Pelosi, Schumer, et al. probably have Swiss bank accounts to dwarf even Zelensky’s.

Meanwhile, our savings are inflated away to worthlessness to finance the corruption that is synonymous both with Ukraine and with Democrat rule.

Starbucks and the Decline of America

Corporate America panders obsequiously to the leftist crocodile, each company hoping that by appeasement it will get eaten last. This contemptible strategy has failed once again. Starbucks is as cloyingly self-righteous about its moonbat politics as any corporation, even allowing itself to be bullied into turning its restrooms in public toilets/drug dens. Stores have predictably become too dangerous to operate. Sixteen will close; more will no doubt follow.

CEO Howard Schultz blames politicians. As a Democrat donor, he is in no position to cast stones:

“I must say, in my view at the local, state and federal level, these governments across the country and leaders, mayors and governors, city councils have abdicated their responsibility in fighting crime and addressing mental health,” Schultz said in a video posted on Twitter.

The problem is specific to Democrat-governed localities. The store closures are in Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, Philadelphia, and Washington.

All four states and the District are run by Democrats — Jay Inslee in Washington, Gavin Newsom in California, Kate Brown in Oregon, Tom Wolf in Pennsylvania, and Muriel Bowser in D.C.

Starbucks has made corporate policy of promoting Black Lives Matter moonbattery, and consequently does not deserve to partake of the blessings of law & order — that is, of civilization.

Schultz calls Starbucks “a window into America.” From across the ocean, people look through that window at America disintegrating under moonbat domination and recoil in horror:

Moonbat Theater: AOC Arrested

For sheer phoniness, it seemed not even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could outdo the staged pose where she pretended an empty lot was full of illegal alien children so horrifically oppressed by Republicans that it reduced her to tears. But then she decided to get herself arrested:

Police arrested at least 17 House Democrats on Tuesday for blocking traffic outside the United States Supreme Court during a planned “civil disobedience” abortion protest.

The usual suspects included AOC:

The hands behind the back are so you will think she has been handcuffed. She blew it by raising her communist fist, but the MSM will have no problem finding the right stills to create the desired illusion.

Her posturing is in the context of demanding that the Supreme Court make a joke of the Constitution by imposing the killing of children on states where the voters do not want it.

If smugness could be converted to energy, the Democrat War on Oil would no longer be an issue, to judge by the look on her face:

This ditz really thinks she is Che Guevara, recast as a female the way Hollywood does remakes these days. Give her enough power and she would be no less a monster than Castro’s executioner.

Pelosis Will Cash In Big on Chip Subsidies

The bigger the government, the greater the opportunity for graft. San Francisco liberalism is the essence of big government. That could be why former Mayor and current Senator Dianne Feinstein is listing a vacation home for $29.9 million. It could also explain why the congresscritter representing San Francisco is so conspicuously corrupt:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul bought up to $5 million in stock of a computer chip company ahead of a vote on a bill next week that would hand billions in subsidies to boost chip manufacturing, a financial disclosure shows.

Paul Pelosi purchased 20,000 shares of Nvidia, one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies, on June 17, according to the speaker’s disclosure report released Thursday. Now, senators will convene as early as Tuesday to vote on a bipartisan competition bill, which allocates $52 billion to boost domestic semiconductor manufacturing and gives tax credits for production, Reuters reported Thursday.

How else is Nancy Pelosi to pay for the $24,000 Sub-Zero freezers where she stores her pricey gourmet ice cream?

Meanwhile, these zillionaires are grinding the middle class out of existence between the millstones of taxation and inflation, exactly as founding father of progressivism Vladimir Lenin recommended.

It would be wise to stay off the streets of San Francisco, in case Paul Pelosi wants to celebrate his stock market killing. The same ruling class privilege that protects corruption also enables drunk driving.

War on Freelancers Will Cause Economic Havoc

If all workers cannot be directly employed by Big Government, they must at least be controlled by Big Unions, which are a lucrative extension of the Democratic Party. Otherwise, workers would be independent — and independence is obscene from the point of view of our leftist ruling class. That’s why the Democrats have conspired to throw tens of millions of Americans out of work by making it illegal to work on a freelance basis.

Biden et al. has intended from the beginning to inflict a federal version of California’s AB5, which demonstrates the Democrat belief in the American dream by criminalizing working for yourself. AB5 is about to cause economic havoc.

The law decrees that

“a person providing labor or services for remuneration shall be considered an employee rather than an independent contractor unless the hiring entity demonstrates that the person is free from the control and direction of the hiring entity in connection with the performance of the work, the person performs work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business, and the person is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation, or business.”

Those who find favor with California’s moonbat overlords get exceptions. Truckers are not among them.

A January 2020 injunction saved trucking from the insane and tyrannical law. However:

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra [currently head of Biden’s HHS] called on U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez to reverse the injunction. …

On June 28, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case of the California truckers battling against AB5. …

Now, the truckers must be employees of trucking companies and not independent contractors in order to be able to work in California. …

If the law is enforced, California faces a possible mass exodus of the state’s estimated 70,000 independent truckers.

Imagine the chaos this will cause at the Port of Oakland alone:

“There’s 9,000 trucks that serve the port on a daily basis, and 90% of them are independent contractors. So, this is a big, big impact,” said Bill Aboudi owner of AB Trucking in Oakland.

You think we have a supply chain crisis now? You think prices are already high? Just wait. Democrats are not through inflicting their agenda.

The California Trucking Association delivered a warning, “Gasoline has been poured on the fire that is our ongoing supply chain crisis. In addition to the direct impact on California’s 70,000 owner-operators who have seven days to cease long-standing independent businesses, the impact of taking tens of thousands of truck drivers off the road will have devastating repercussions on an already fragile supply chain, increasing costs and worsening runaway inflation.”

If they were merely fools, they might show contrition. But Democrats are pressing full steam ahead toward economic devastation.

Sneers Lorena Gonzalez, currently head of the California Labor Federation, who was the author of AB5:

“The fact that trucking companies will have to abide by basic labor laws in CA takes us one step closer to rebuilding the middle class that was almost deregulated out of existence.”

If there are two things Democrats love, they are regulation and unions. They are more than willing to make us suffer for them.

If you think the economy has been bad since Biden took power, think how awful it would be if he were able to get his favored legislation passed. His Build Back Better lurch deeper into socialism would push inflation into Venezuela territory. The Pro Act — a federal version of AB5 — would do to the whole country what malevolent leftists like Gavin Newsom and Lorena Gonzalez are doing to California.

Dems Can’t Have It Both Ways on Guns and Blacks

Democrats demonize the NRA, while presenting themselves as the heroic saviors of blacks. This won’t wash with people who know history. Sam Jacobs, for example:

[T]he NRA has historically opposed laws that were virtually tailor made to deny African-Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Many gun control laws to this day stem from the KKK’s fear of armed and independent minorities. The Rosewood Massacre in 1923 – a bloodbath led by a white mob that resulted in the destruction of an entire black community in Florida – was a clear example of how an armed black people could prevent future KKK raids. …

[T]he uptick in black NRA members as well as gun ownership and firearms acceptability in the black community isn’t an anomaly, but a reconnection with a deeper past stretching back to Reconstruction. The right to keep and carry arms was even mentioned in the infamous Supreme Court case of Scott v. Sandford, where the enslaved Dred Scott sued for his freedom.

Jerone Davison is a former ASU and NFL running back who is running to represent Arizona’s 1.8% black 4th congressional district. He knows history too:

Founded by Democrats, the KKK has been referred to as the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party. In its prime, it served a role similar to today’s Antifa. The more things change…

Guns are called equalizers for good reason. That’s why women carry them to prevent being raped.

Democrat State Senator Tiara Mack Twerks Upside Down

No matter how far they progress, progressives will progress further still. Did you think no one could be less suitable to hold power over us than the ballyhooed Future of the Democratic Party, cognitively challenged communist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Introducing Tiara Mack, the self-described “Queer Educator” and Rhode Island state senator who has been pushing what she calls “queer inclusive, pleasure-based sex ed” onto children:

Tiara Mack personifies her party not only culturally, but in terms of policy. She supports more taxes, more public housing, socialized medicine, cancellation of student debt, “diversifying” (i.e., purging of Caucasians) the teacher body, and “requiring a more comprehensive sex education.” She opposes the right to bear arms and election integrity.

No doubt Tiara Mack will be on the short list if Biden is around to select another Supreme Court justice.

It challenges the imagination to wonder how Democrats will find a representative who takes self-parody to a further extreme, yet somehow they will.

Already, the state of our ruling party draws gasps of horror from across the ocean:

Andrew Gillum Charged With 21 Felonies

Florida has become a beacon of hope and a refuge for freedom-loving Americans since Ron DeSantis took office. Things might have turned out differently. In the 2018 election for governor, DeSantis beat leftist Democrat Andrew Gillum by fewer than 34,000 votes, a margin of victory of about 0.4%. Soon afterward, Gillum turned up naked, unreachably inebriated, and vomiting in a luxury hotel with a homosexual prostitute who was unconscious from overdosing on crystal meth. Now we read this:

Andrew Gillum was charged in federal court on Wednesday with 21 felonies related to his failed 2018 Florida gubernatorial campaign…

Gillum claimed in a statement that he was innocent and that the charges were political, even though he is being charged by the Department of Justice, which is overseen by the Biden administration.

For a Democrat’s corruption to get the attention of Merrick Garland’s Injustice Department, it has to stink bad enough to make the Devil wrinkle his nose down in hell.

“The Indictment alleges that between 2016 and 2019, defendants Gillum and [Sharon Janet] Lettman-Hicks conspired to commit wire fraud, by unlawfully soliciting and obtaining funds from various entities and individuals through false and fraudulent promises and representations that the funds would be used for a legitimate purpose,” the statement says. “The Indictment further alleges the defendants used third parties to divert a portion of those funds to a company owned by Lettman-Hicks, who then fraudulently provided the funds, disguised as payroll payments, to Gillum for his personal use.”

If found guilty, Gillum will be behind bars for decades to come. At least he won’t have to spend big on gay prostitutes.

Instead of a sanctuary for patriots, Florida would now be a another liberal dystopia if Gillum had been governor for the past few years instead of DeSantis.

Only a few votes separate sanity from insanity, freedom from tyranny, flourishing from ruin. However, Republicans need to win by more than a few votes, because people cut of Gillum’s cloth tend to cheat.

Democrats Double Down on Driving Up Inflation

Skyrocketing inflation is destroying the American economy. It has two primary causes: massive wasteful spending by the federal government and the suppression of energy production. The situation will continue to deteriorate rapidly so long as Democrats remain in charge.

Speaking before the union thugs he eagerly panders to at the country’s expense, Biden confirmed that not only will he not take steps to reduce skyrocketing inflation, he plans to double down on spending. Astonishingly, Biden blamed Republicans for inflation, implying that they are causing the problem by preventing Democrats from wasting even more money.

Biden growled menacingly:

“Republicans in Congress are doing everything they can to stop my plans to bring down costs on ordinary families. That’s why my plan is not finished and why the results aren’t finished either.”

To “bring down costs” from the viewpoint of this socialist is to print more money to pay for luxuries like “free” childcare, which like “free” college has temporarily stalled due to resistance. The inflationary effect of such policies are so obvious that even Biden or at least his handlers and media enablers must be aware of it. Weimar Republic-style inflation is not a bug; it is a feature. It will destroy the deplorable middle class and allow Democrats to pay down the federal debt with debased currency.

Don’t expect the ruling party to stop driving inflation through its War on Energy. On behalf of the liberal elite, the Climate Czar intones that we little people will have to make do with what is intermittently supplied by moonbat-approved technology like wind and solar:

During remarks last week, Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said that “energy security worry is driving” the thinking that there is a need for additional drilling and for going “back to coal” — but he flatly rejected those notions.

Needless to say,

Rapidly rising fuel costs result in higher transportation costs, which can also lead to higher prices for all sorts of goods and services.

With each day that the malevolent kooks comprising the Democratic Party remain in power, your money is worth less.

There is no point at which the situation will get so bad that Democrats will stop deliberately making it worse, any more than Pol Pot was ever going to acknowledge the destructiveness of his ideology and begin to govern responsibly.

Liz Cheney Shakedown

Americans would have forgotten by now about the rowdy behavior at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, considering how many serious problems have developed since. But Democrats won’t let them forget. The January 6 Commission is back in the news following the show arrest of Peter Navarro. Despite the resolution that created it calling for there to be five Republicans on the commission, there are only two; this renders the entire theatrical production invalid. Both are Democrats in all but name. The Pelosi Republican Adam Kinzinger is such a liberal that he weeps in public. As for Liz Cheney, we have confirmation that she is ready to switch parties:

Ahead of Thursday’s prime-time show-trial hearings for the Jan. 6 Committee, the panel’s vice chair, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, is soliciting campaign contributions from those subpoenaed by the witch hunt probe.

Megan Small, who was director of operations for the Trump campaign and was subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 Committee in September, published a Cheney campaign mailer on Twitter Monday requesting donations. …

Small told The Federalist she received the mailer at her Florida address on May 21, calling the letter “unsavory at best” given the committee’s threats to refer those subpoenaed for criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Small had better pay up. She doesn’t want to be set upon by the KGB I mean FBI the next time they can catch her in a public place where they can parade her around in handcuffs and leg irons like Navarro.

Thuggishness and corruption? Or just incompetence? Either way, if it quacks like a Democrat…

Liz Cheney has all her chips on Democrats seizing control of elections through either legislation or executive order and thereby imposing single-party rule. She will never again be elected as a Republican in Wyoming.

Not that she doesn’t have plenty of campaign cash:

Cheney still has more than $6.7 million in cash on hand of more than $10 million raised with less than three months left in the race. A Federalist analysis revealed a vast majority of her donations came from her true constituents in Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia rather than residents of Wyoming. Thousands have come from the same blue-dollar donors who bankrolled the Lincoln Project.

Cheney could buy every minute of local ad time in Wyoming. No Republican who has a clue what she has been up to will vote for her — except of course the guy liberals used to call Darth Cheney, but for whom they now have a strange new respect.
