High Burn Rates for Faltering Democrat Campaigns

Democrats are running their campaigns the same way they would run the government — by throwing money to the four winds, heedless of the consequences. Just like the country may do if any of them is elected, their campaigns are going broke:

In the last fundraising quarter, nearly half of the Democratic presidential candidates spent more than they raised in donations.

Campaigns with the highest burn rates include lame joke candidates Kirsten Gillibrand, Robert Francis O’Rourke, and Cory Booker.

They may call campaign deficits “burn rates” because the schmucks who donated to these doomed campaigns got burned.

The profligate spenders will have to get their campaigns into gear quickly to keep from going under. Watch for them to spout still more outrageous moonbattery at the next debate opportunity.

Paul Joseph Watson Loves Ilhan Omar

Ilhan Omar is modern liberalism taken to its logical conclusion. The rabidly anti-American refugee from Somalia demonstrates the kind of gratitude you can expect after taking in baby rattlesnakes so that they don’t have to weather the cold. In a recent poll of white swing district voters with 2 years or less of college indoctrination, Omar earns a 9% popularity rating among those familiar with her. That’s why Paul Joseph Watson loves her:

Watson will love Ilhan Omar and AOC less if people like them end up in charge of the country. They already call the shots in the Democrat Party.

In 2008, Barack Obama ran on a platform of despising America and wanting to fundamentally transform it. He was elected. Then, despite colluding with our worst enemy Iran and prolonging a severe recession with his “boot-on-the-neck” approach to the market economy, he was reelected. The prevailing extreme of moonbattery has only worsened since then.

As the media keeps reminding us, three of the four members of Omar’s Squad were born in the USA. Any of them running for president a few years down the road would have the key backing of the media and Silicon Valley.

BTW, #IlhanOmarForSpeaker has been trending on Twitter. Most of the tweets appear to be on the level, enthusiastically supporting her. The Democrat base really is that sick.

Hodan Nalayeh Is Why Ilhan Omar Doesn’t Go Home

Rather than bitch endlessly about how much she hates America, why doesn’t Ilhan Omar take Trump’s advice and go back to her own country so as to help raise it to her high standards? Maybe she doesn’t want to end up like Somali-born journalist Hodan Nalayeh.

Via the BBC:

Nalayeh, who grew up in Canada, returned to Somalia last year to highlight positive stories about her country of birth.

She was among 26 people killed by al-Shabab militants in Kismayo on Friday. …

Nalayeh has been credited with showing a different side to Somalia to the stories of civil war, militancy and famine.

That “different side” turns out not to be relevant — if it even exists.

The “racist” narrative is confirmed as accurate.

Somalia is not an uninhabitable hellhole due to the weather or the geography. It is like that because it is full of Somalis. As Ilhan Omar illustrates, the more Somalis we allow into the country out of suicidal altruism, the more we become like Somalia.

How They Know Invaders Will Vote Democrat

A story from February explains why Democrats want the border open, confident that the hordes flooding across to fundamentally transform our country will reliably vote Democrat for many generations to come. The invaders’ greedy, arrogant, and utterly unjustified sense of entitlement sets them squarely at the center of the Democrat reservation. They have even sued the country they invaded:

Six migrant families filed multi-million dollar claims Monday against the Trump administration over last year’s family separations, saying they need the money to pay for counseling and other medical care to heal from the “torture” they said they suffered.

Funny that people come from all over the world to break into our concentration camps so that they can be tortured.

Each claimant seeks $3 million.

No swarm of locusts could be more rapacious.

Of the six migrant families, five appear to have sneaked across the border and been arrested as illegal immigrants. Based on the filings, the sixth appears to have shown up at a port of entry without permission.

This is the equivalent of Japanese pilots suing the USA for shooting down their airplanes at Pearl Harbor.

I can’t find word on the progress of the suit. Once something enters the gears of the legal system, it can take years for anything to happen. That’s why it takes so long to get an illegal alien ordered deported. It takes even longer for the deportation to actually occur over the raging objections of Democrats.

The story indicates how willing the invaders are to exploit the phony rhetoric served up by the Left. When they have the numbers, they will be the ruling class. Our welfare state will enslave us to them. That’s where the Democrats come in, always eager to take a fat cut for enforcing wealth redistribution.

Associating Dems With Squad Could Sink Them

At last the media has what it presents as evidence that Trump really is a racist. When he told the Odd Squad (aka the Squad, the Gang of Four) that if they hate America so much they should go back to their own countries, media apparatchiks lurched to exploit his alleged “racist trope.” However, shouting about it may do more harm than good to the party most journalists serve, to judge by an Axios poll that was taken before AOC’s latest conflict with moderate radical Nancy Pelosi.

The poll studied white voters in swing districts with 2 years or less of college indoctrination. Trump did well among such people and needs to again. The poll found:

• Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
• Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.

AOC and Ilhan Omar are the two best-known members of the Squad.

The poll also found that socialism is overwhelmingly unpopular among these voters. The Gang of Four are conspicuous for their aggressive support for imposing socialism on the USA.

To the extent people are aware that the malevolent maniacs comprising the Squad are in the driver’s seat in the Democrat Party, the Dems’ hold on Congress is at risk. Shoving these harpies in the public’s face while shrieking tediously about racism may not be a wise tactic on the part of the media.

Jay Inslee Promises Secretary of State Megan Rapinoe

The Democrat Party has got to be approaching peek preposterousness. Jay Inslee — a certifiable lunatic who has actually been elected Governor of Washington — barked yesterday that if he is elected President of the USA, he will select as Secretary of State the obnoxious, foul-mouthed, theatrically anti-American moonbat Megan Rapinoe:

He said at the progressive Netroots Nation conference that one of his first acts as president would be to get a secretary of State who embraces world unity and “love rather than hate” as he rebuked President Trump’s foreign policy.

“My first act will be to ask Megan Rapinoe to be my secretary of State,” he said.

In the context of bashing Trump, “love” is Liberalese for “hate,” as Inslee’s fellow kook Marianne Williamson demonstrated during a debate.

Inslee’s supporters may be disappointed that his first act won’t be to criminalize automobiles or repeal the Industrial Revolution. So far, he has been running as a single-issue candidate on the global warming hoax.

To get an idea of why the odious Megan Rapinoe might be the most tastelessly absurd choice for Secretary of State out of everyone on the planet, see here and here — or watch the Blue Collar Logic video below:

David Solway States the Problem

David Solway may not have the solution, but he understands the problem, and that is at least a step toward solving it. We aren’t going to prevent the Left from destroying America by winning any arguments. The liberal darling of the day Megan Rapinoe made this clear when she proclaimed that she is glad to have a substantive conversation with anyone, so long as they agree with her. The Left’s conception of discourse consists of chanting preapproved slogans. Anything else would be racist. As Solway puts it,

Debate and discussion with any of the manifestations of the left is a non-starter since the left does not debate or discuss. It adheres to a rigid orthodoxy that will allow no reconsideration or reflection on the putative axioms it regards as sacred. It is, in essence, the contemporary version of Bolshevism. The left will lie, slander, cheat and commit violence to further its goals. Its mind is deadbolted shut.

There is not much use trying to win an argument with someone who is yelling in your face that you are a racist if you don’t hate your own race, or that the planet will perish if your taxes aren’t raised.

The Democrats in their current disposition are not interested in dealing. Antifa is not interested in negotiating. A totalitarian plutocrat like George Soros, who as a youth collaborated with the Nazis and is proud of it, is not interested in consultation.

If they aren’t interesting in dealing now, imagine how open-minded they will be when the open border and the welfare state change the demographics enough to put their Cultural Marxist coalition in permanent control of all branches of government.

As Lincoln is said to have said, America will not be destroyed from the outside. The enemy that intends to eradicate America, erasing its heritage and displacing its people, is attacking from within.

This enemy can’t be bought off with compromise. That only gives it more time to erode American values and cultural norms and utilize control of the media and education to brainwash more followers.

Reagan had the only useful strategy: “We win, they lose.” It worked in the Cold War; it will have to work in the Cold Civil War.

Ilhan Omar’s Racialist Marxist Demagoguery Based on Lies

Here’s a big surprise. The race-based Marxist demagoguery projectile vomited by Islamocongresscritter Ilhan Omar turns out to be based on lies:

The Washington Post reports that Omar was speaking to an audience of 400 high school students when she told of visiting a Minneapolis courtroom, where she witnessed a “sweet, old … African American lady” who spent the weekend in jail for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter.” After the woman was fined $80 for the crime, Omar said she couldn’t control her emotions and yelled, “Bulls–t!” in the courtroom.

“Omar’s story echoed the plot of ‘Les Miserables.’ If true, it is also probably embellished,” wrote Washington Post reporters Greg Jaffe and Souad Mekhennet. “City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.”

Not to mention, no one has to steal to feed hungry relatives in America. It is much easier to let the government do it for them.

When called on her malicious lies, Omar resorted to the familiar faulty memory defense:

“I’m not sure. . . . The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”

She also recently proclaimed that 45% of military families rely on food stamps. Although liberals have deliberately made it easier to qualify so that even people who don’t need assistance will get hooked on the free government cheese, the actual number is under 5%.

In support of the liberal attack on our constitutional rights, she shrieked that 500 people die of gun violence per day. The actual number for the USA in 2017 was one-fifth of that; most of these deaths were suicides.

But getting caught in these malevolent lies doesn’t matter. Even on the rare occasions that the media exposes them, the impression on Democrat voters that America is cruel to put-upon minorities and therefore must be replaced with a more tender-hearted system like they have in Venezuela remains.

Coming from a Somali refugee who is only here due to America’s suicidal altruism, Omar’s smears are particularly galling. But it would be foolish to expect gratitude.

BET Founder Robert Johnson: Dems Too Far Left

BET is not exactly a bastion of conservative culture and thought. Unsurprisingly, its founder Robert Johnson is a longtime Democrat donor. When the radicalized Democrat Party loses Johnson, you know it is going off the rails:

“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson, the founder of cable network BET and RLJ Companies business network, told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble Tuesday.

Johnson isn’t supporting any of the myriad godawful candidates the Dems are running against Trump. He wisely notes that whoever wins the nomination will have to move to the center quickly to compete. At this point, it looks like the Democrats have conceded the center — and even some real estate to the left of it.

You have to be in Karl Marx territory not to recognize that the economy has faired dramatically better under Trump than under Obama.

“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment … so African-American unemployment is at its lowest level,” Johnson said. …

“I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans,” he said.

The Democrats have made it clear that if given the opportunity they will deliberately reverse this economic progress, on the absurdist grounds that growing prosperity “doesn’t work for everyone.”

Says Johnson,

“At the end of the day, the American people are looking for someone who can deliver economically and deliver on opportunities.”

That sounds a lot more like Trump than like any of his Democrat rivals.

No wonder Democrats are so keen on importing the entire Third World across the undefended border. They are running out of Americans who will vote for them.

Kamala Harris Promises to Pay Blacks $100 Billion

It isn’t just the AfroFuture Fest. Even Democrat presidential candidates explicitly discriminate based on race. Moonbat dragon lady Kamala Harris promises to hand Privileged Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation $100 billion of other people’s money to blow on housing that they cannot afford.

Via Fox News:

[Harris] announced Saturday that she would invest [i.e., waste] $100 billion of federal money into housing assistance for black families as part of an effort to close the racial wealth gap in the United States if elected president.

Because PPPPPs can be counted on as a group to attain lower levels of economic achievement than other groups, authoritarian egalitarians will not rest until the wealth gap between them and others has been erased. At that point, we will have attained liberal utopia, aka communism.

While appearing at Essence’s Global Black Economic Forum, she emphasized the role of homeownership in driving the growth of wealth in the U.S. According to Harris’ campaign, she would help 4 million homebuyers through down payment and closing-cost assistance — granting up to $25,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Democrats used this same line of moonbattery to cause the economic collapse of 2008. According to their ideology, only racism could explain favored racial groups having lower rates of home ownership. So banks were strong-armed into giving them home loans they could not pay back. The rest is history.

It is also the future.

The program would target residents in red-lined communities — areas the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation has dissuaded lenders from investing in — which her campaign identified as a culprit behind wealth disparities.

It isn’t that Democrats don’t learn from history; they learn plenty. For example, they learned that helping to crash the economy through the Community Reinvestment Act ushered Barack Obama into the White House.

Illegal Aliens and Human Traffickers Incentivized to Acquire Children

Often the disastrous “unexpected” consequences that attend liberal policies are so easily foreseeable that progressives are as responsible for them as if they had inflicted the damage out of deliberate malice rather than sanctimonious virtue-signaling foolishness. For example, they have created a situation in which towing a child along as you illegally sneak into the USA is as good as having a visa — even better, considering that it allows illegal aliens not only to ignore immigration law but also to collect generous welfare benefits. This lunacy has made children into a commodity in high demand in the cutthroat realm of human trafficking. Mr. Magoo could have seen this coming:

Some migrants in Tijuana are trying to purchase children from vulnerable single mothers in local shelters so they can more easily cross into the United States, according to shelter directors, migrants and Tijuana law enforcement authorities. …

Pastor Gustavo Banda, a Tijuana shelter director, said families at the shelter are terrified and feel forced to keep all their children locked inside at all times. …

It is unclear whether the men approaching the shelter are trying to use the children for their own passage or for others who wish to cross.

It is also unclear what will happen to the little kids after they have served their purpose.

If no willing sellers can be found, children will inevitably be taken by force. Here’s why they are so valuable:

Typically, when migrants are apprehended at the border with their children they are held in custody for a few days before they are released. Single adults who cross the border can face months in detention.

This could be fixed easily — but not without cooperation from Democrats, which is unlikely to be forthcoming. Why should they help solve a crisis that their allies in the media can turn to their advantage? Dead children make for effective propaganda, as we learned during the Syrian invasion of Europe.

Rather than help protect children from danger, Democrats are doubling down on exploiting them:

This might be a good time to remind everyone that the border bill passed in the House and pushed by Nancy Pelosi contained a provision specifically stating that the U.S. Government would have to broadcast information about the child accompaniment policy outside of the United States so potential asylum applicants could be made aware of it. And what did she think was going to happen when we did that? Suddenly everyone who shows up at the fence is going to have a child with them.

Their child, or someone else’s.

Border authorities recently came across a 10-year-old girl with semen from 20 different men inside her body. She was accompanied by a faux family member. That’s what Democrats are willing to enable to keep the illegal immigration floodgates open.

Frederica Wilson Threatens Sites That Poke Fun

You can see why a person as patently absurd as cognitively crippled congresscritter of color Frederica Wilson, best known for wearing preposterous cowboy hats covered in sequins or made out of fur, might get tired of people making fun of her. But that is no excuse for threatening to bring down the mighty weight of Big Government on those who exercise the precious right of free speech by snickering online.

I’m guessing Frederica meant to say “acceptable,” not “unacceptable.” Words over two syllables get her confused.

Didn’t she have to swear an oath to uphold the Constitution? Too bad people who violate that oath cannot be promptly removed from Washington, preferably adorned in tar and feathers.
