The Self-Driving Tesla and Democrat Rule

The self-driving Tesla is an excellent metaphor for Democrat rule.

Just as the Democrats are the party of plutocrats who ostentatiously pretend to care about the poor despite supporting policies that make more people poor, Teslas are expensive toys for posturing rich people who pretend they are saving the climate by driving an electric car despite the absurdity of believing their car will impact the weather.

Tesla benefits from government subsidies — i.e., ideologically driven crony capitalism, which used to be known as corporatism or fascism. This economic approach is associated with the Democrat Party, which implements it at the expense of the free market that Republicans are elected to defend.

The self-driving aspect corresponds to Democrats’ relentless expansion of Big Government, which robs us of volition as it becomes omnipresent and omnipotent.

This story makes the metaphor complete:

Two men died after a Tesla ‘on autopilot with no one driving’ crashed into a tree in Houston before starting a huge fire that took 32,000 gallons of water to extinguish.

The fully-electric 2019 Tesla Model S slammed into the tree in Carlton Woods at around 11.25pm on Saturday night before bursting into flames with the passengers still inside.

Jennifer Aniston will have to brush her teeth in the shower for some time to compensate the Earth for 32,000 gallons of water wasted.

The $80,000 car was traveling at high speed with no one in the driver’s seat. Similarly, the outlandishly expensive federal government is expanding at high speed, with a crash test dummy sitting in the driver’s seat. The results will be the same as for the ill-fated Texas Tesla.

Classic Kamala Cackle

The mainly pointless, union-driven closure of schools in the name of the ChiCom virus has caused great hardship for people with children in the home who need to go to work. At least this has the benefit of tickling Kamala Harris’s funny bone:

Harris has been put in charge of the debacle at the border that has resulted from Biden’s invitation to the entire Third World to climb aboard the American welfare gravy train. We can’t show actual footage of her resolving the crisis, because that would violate administration policy regarding transparency. So here’s a reenactment:

Biden Slips

Back in the 1970s, moonbat comedian Chevy Chase used goofy slapstick routines on Saturday Night Live to convince the public that President Ford was a klutz. Actually, the athletic Ford — who played football for University of Michigan and was into downhill skiing — was not a klutz, as even CBS’s Bob Schieffer admitted. If he were, lefty entertainers wouldn’t need to stumble around on stage. They could just run clips like this:

I doubt that this will inspire any comedy routines among the late night set. But then, in Biden’s case, this isn’t funny — not when it is unclear whether he knows he is supposed to be the POTUS for now, not Kamala Harris:

This symptom isn’t new. In December, he referred to Kamala Harris as “president-elect.” As far back as last summer, he said Harris was chosen because she was “ready to lead on day one.”

Where Biden is concerned, clumsiness and constant misstatements could indicate a more serious problem — namely, that soon Harris really will be president, unless his handlers want to get charged with elder abuse. Not that she or anyone else the Democrat Party’s leftist fever swamps have to offer could be any more radical, corrupt, or incompetent than Biden has proven to be.

Putin Challenges Biden to Debate

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Democrats have stopped siding with the Russians against America, and now exploit them as a boogeyman with whom they mendaciously attempt to associate Republicans. This has resulted in the hapless Biden picking a fight with Vladimir Putin. The fight is not going well for Biden.

Biden called Putin a “killer” during a fluff interview with Democrat apparatchik George Stephanopoulos. Putin’s response:

“It takes one to know one,” Putin taunted on Thursday. “We always see our own traits in other people and think they are like how we really are.”

The Democrat reputation for projection has gone global.

Biden also has a reputation for being wrong on nearly every major foreign policy issue, as Bush-Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates confirmed. This is likely to result in Biden proving Putin right by getting people killed in a senseless conflict, possibly in Syria.

Putin presses his advantage:

“I want to invite President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it actually live. But with no delays, directly in an open, direct discussion,” Putin said in Moscow.

Imagine the laughs if Biden and Putin engaged in a fair and open debate on the world stage.

No debate needs to take place. The point has been made — namely, that Biden would never dare debate Putin, unless possibly with Chris Wallace as moderator.

Jen Psaki says she will have to circle back to reporters on whether the debate will take place. That means no way. Incidentally, I understand that her name has become a word in the Russian language. A псаки is a unit of measure for stupidity.

Cuomo, Biden, and Tara Reade

Erstwhile golden boy Andrew Cuomo has been thrown to the sharks. Both of New York’s senators have called upon him to resign over accusations that he behaves toward women with the same bullying boorishness as he does toward everyone else. Boxed into a corner, Joe Biden has been forced to finally take a stand — sort of.

Biden told Democrat apparatchik George Stephanopoulos that Cuomo needs to be investigated, that if his accusers are found to be telling the truth he should resign, that there could be criminal prosecution, and that “A woman should be presumed to be telling the truth.”

Needless to say, this does not apply to Tara Reade, who has made a credible sexual assault allegation against Biden involving digital penetration. This is more serious than the Cuomo #MeToo accusations, which gradually escalated from tasteless banter to groping.

Considering that only a few weeks ago, Cuomo was the “Love Guv,” fawningly promoted by the liberal establishment media, why are the long knives out for him over #MeToo allegations, when the titular POTUS is probably guilty of worse?

Because the issue is never the issue with Democrats. Cuomo has been challenged from even farther left by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who chose to make an issue of what previously only conservatives seemed to know: that Cuomo is responsible for thousands of unnecessary deaths as a result of forcing nursing homes to accept COVID patients.

This is why Cuomo — only recently a leading candidate for US Attorney General — is now a gangrenous limb that must be severed before the infection can spread. Other Democrat governors have killed seniors with the same homicidal policy, including Gavin Newsom of California, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, and Phil Murphy of New Jersey.

The plan is to make Cuomo walk the plank, put the radical leftist Letitia James on track to replace him, and hope that everyone forgets about unnecessary nursing home deaths. Sacrificing an individual is no problem for people who believe in achieving power through collectivist ideology.

This would blow up in their faces if the media had the integrity to ask, “What about Tara Reade?”

Meghan Markle for President

Given the downward trajectory of the Democratic Party, you may wonder how it will manage to produce a worse presidential candidate than the corrupt, non compos mentis figurehead of the ultra-left currently serving as POTUS. The answer: B-list Hollywood wokester Meghan Markle.

The Daily Mail reports:

One senior Labour figure – a veteran of Tony Blair’s Downing Street administration with strong links to Washington – claimed to The Mail on Sunday that Ms Markle, 39, was networking among senior Democrats with a view to building a campaign and fundraising teams for a tilt at the US Presidency.

As for qualifications, Donald Trump observed that Meghan Markle is “no good.” That ought to do in the minds of Democrats. Biden’s successful campaign consisted almost entirely of hiding in his basement while not being Trump.

We will have no choice but to vote for Markle. Otherwise, she might whimper to Oprah that we are racists, or even contemplate suicide again.

We saw what happened to Piers Morgan when he criticized the Duchess of Sussex’s appalling behavior. Who else will dare to oppose her?

Considering her privileged victimhood, whiny witlessness, hostility to heritage, and absence of shame, Markle is the apotheosis of the Democratic Party. Let’s wish her luck doing for it what she has done for British royalty.

Biden Cannot Remember Name of Secretary of Defense

The good news is that the US military is more politically correct than ever, now that Biden has appointed two 4-star combatant commanders on the basis of their gender in celebration of International Women’s Day. The bad news is that our Commander in Chief cannot remember the name of the Secretary of Defense, or even of the Pentagon:

As the New York Post reports,

Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

But the names don’t stick for long. If it isn’t on the teleprompter, he shouldn’t try to say it.

At least Biden is sure to remember that Lloyd Austin is a Person of Color.

AOC Calls Republicans Weird for Being Obsessed With Gender Identity

By now we are used to Democrats projecting their own characteristics onto their opponents, but this breaks new ground in terms of absurdity. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a prominent representative of the party that is aggressively imposing the transsexual agenda, screeches that Republicans who resist their grotesque social engineering are “weird”:

“Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not. Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves.”

It is progressives who created and obsessively promote the depraved concept of transsexual children.

These children are not trying to be themselves. In response to pressures created by liberals — often including their parents — they are trying to become something other than themselves on behalf of a sick political agenda.

AOC’s ejaculation was in defense of the Equality Act, which uses the force of the federal government to impose males on female sports teams and private facilities. That is weirdness taken to the last extreme and then rammed down our throats at gunpoint.

This is weird.

Senator Blows Almost $300K at Morton’s Steakhouse

According to the creed of our ruling class, we should all be held to the same standard of living. If some live better than others, this is a violation of equity, and government coercion is required to put it right. However, those who apply the coercion are entitled to live very differently. That’s why the Democrat Party’s ideology is called “oligarchical collectivism.” While regular Americans struggle to keep businesses afloat despite tyrannical lockdowns, here is how the oligarchy lives:

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez has dropped just over $298,000 at Morton’s Steakhouse since 2003, averaging more than $16,000 a year…

The Democrat charged the bills to donors of his Senate campaign committee and his New Millennium Leadership PAC. The largest single check — a $12,957.69 whopper — came in February 2020. …

A 2019 profile of Menendez in the Star Ledger called the eatery one of a “few indulgences” which also included after-dinner cigars. Those smokes cost the senator’s various committees more than $3,200 at Jamie’s Cigar Bar & Restaurant in Clifton, N.J.

It is believed that another of his indulgences is flying down to the Caribbean to have sex with children.

Even by New Jersey standards, Menendez is notoriously corrupt:

Menendez, 67, has served in the Senate since 2006, and weathered a major scandal when reports surfaced in 2013 that a federal grand jury in Miami was investigating him for advocating for the business interests of Florida ophthalmologist and major donor Salomon Melgen. The pol was indicted in 2015 on charges that included bribery, fraud, and making false statements. The Miami case ended in a mistrial and charges were dropped, but Menendez was “severely admonished” in 2018 by the Senate ethics committee.

The severe admonition is confirmation that everyone knows this rat belongs in prison. But he is too powerful to be punished.

Menendez and his fellow Democrat oligarchs are in the process of looting America into ruin.

“Whatever You Want Me to Do,” Bleats Biden

No wonder his handlers won’t let Biden do a solo press conference, much less a State of the Union. He can barely handle virtual appearances without coming across as a tool who is docilely following orders that he can barely comprehend.

Breitbart reports:

The White House abruptly cut their video feed of a virtual event Wednesday after President Joe Biden asked reporters for questions.

Presenting the Commander in Chief:

“Whatever you want me to do,” bleats the supposed Leader of the Free World. “Nance” refers to Nancy Pelosi; he was speaking virtually with members of the House Democrat caucus.

Even NY Times Calls Biden on Hogging Credit That Belongs to Trump

If a single quality allowed Biden to float to the top of the DC swamp, it is that nothing is beneath him. Displaying the same unseemly enthusiasm as when he gropes underage girls, Biden embraces outrages that even other seasoned politicians would shy away from in shame. He rarely interacts directly with the public anymore, but his mentality is aptly conveyed by his chief spokesmoonbat, Jen Psaki.

The Blaze reports on a deal involving Merck and Johnson & Johnson to get everyone vaccinated:

“We are now on track to have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May,” Biden said. “When we came into office, the prior administration had contracted not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America”

“We rectified that,” Biden claimed.

Had he any honor, he would have tipped his hat to his predecessor for a job well done in lining this up. Instead, Biden characteristically hogged for himself credit that belongs to Trump.

This was too much even for the liberal media.

New York Times White House correspondent Michael Shear asked Psaki how the Biden administration can take credit for the deal when, in fact, the New York Times reported about the deal in January.

Psaki’s response was the usual condescending double-talk.

Gina Raimondo Confirmed

Take heart, Rachel Levine; the Biden Administration is a great place for failing upward, so long as you can check a favored identity box. A month ago, Gina Raimondo was featured in a Profile in Incompetence for making her floundering state among the very worst in the country for doing business. Now she is no longer Governor of Rhode Island, having been confirmed as Commerce Secretary.

Lest you think that her only qualification for the job is her gender, Ted Cruz had put a hold on her nomination because she would not take a sufficiently harsh stand against Chinese telecom giant and espionage agency Huawei. Cruz says her nomination is part of a “steady and systematic embrace of communist China” by Biden’s handlers. It is a big plus if Raimondo gets along with Xi Jinping et al., when you consider how snug in bed Biden has been with the ChiComs.

Biden Continues to Hide

I didn’t realize the White House featured an office in the basement, but it must, because Biden has been hiding there.

Almost a month and a half into his misbegotten administration, Biden still has not given a solo press conference, despite enjoying the servile support of the mainstream media, which played a crucial role in putting him and his handlers in power.

Via Breitbart:

A reporter asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday if President Joe Biden is scheduled to independently address the White House press corps.

You can guess the reply: a variation on the standard “circle back” nonanswer.

Biden notably answered very few unscripted questions during his campaign, at which time former President Donald Trump nicknamed him “Joe Hiden.”

Breitbart News reported Biden told CNN the strategy of “hiding” in his basement during the coronavirus pandemic has worked “pretty well.”

It worked well not just for avoiding the virus, but for avoiding scrutiny of his plans and exposure of his unfitness for office.

As for the overdue State of the Union, don’t expect Psaki to circle back with a straight answer any time soon. Incoming presidents have been giving an address to the joint session of Congress in late February. PBS and AP appeared to believe Biden would give one on February 23.

Via RedState:

But when questioned, Jen Psaki said there were no plans for Biden to address the joint session [in February] and that despite what Biden had said and the tentative scheduling some media had, she claimed it “was never planned to be in February.” …

There’s a big problem with having Joe try to deliver a ninety-minute speech at 9:00 p.m. at night without a teleprompter in front of Congress. He has trouble just making it through basic remarks before media for a few minutes, much less a speech of that length.

Ever loyal, instead of wondering why he doesn’t give the address, media outlets like Newsweek and USA Today bark that he doesn’t have to by any certain time.

With enough push from the media, Big Tech, and the rest of the liberal establishment, a cipher like Biden can get elected POTUS on the strength of not being Donald Trump. But getting the job and being able to do it are different things.

The people actually in charge are so scary, they don’t dare show themselves to the public, lest horror ignite resistance to their agenda.

AOC’s Craziest Excretions

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Future of the Democrat Party, has projectile-vomited massive quantities of moonbattery over the past 2 years. Mr Reagan attempts to narrow it all down to the 10 craziest things she has said and fails. But he did manage to narrow it down to 20:

20. Cauliflower is racist.

19. Democrats should take back all three chambers of government.

18. Unemployment was low under Trump because everyone had two jobs.

17. There is crime in Democrat-run cities that have collapsed into lawlessness because people are stealing bread.

16. Southern states need to be liberated from “economic, social, and racial oppression.”

15. It is not okay to have children.

14. The world is going to end in 12 years.

13. Leftists need to occupy everything — every airport, every border, every ICE office, everything.

12. Being factually correct is not important if you are morally right.

11. While getting owned by Thomas Homan, former acting director of ICE, she had nothing coherent to say.

10. White people cause catastrophic climate change.

9. The USA is literally running concentration camps on the southern border.

8. AOC getting elected to Congress was an accomplishment comparable to the moon landing.

7. Before taking office, she threatened Donald Trump Jr with a subpoena for trolling her.

6. She tried to talk like a black at a NAN event.

5. “I’m the boss.”

4. “We’re gonna flip this seat red.”

3. She displayed absolute ignorance regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

2. She expressed wonder and terror upon discovering a garbage disposal and could not figure out what it might be used for.

1. She accused Ted Cruz of trying to have her murdered.

For context and to see for yourself that it really is possible for a single person to spew this much stupidity over a span of just a couple of years, watch the video:

A country that consents to be ruled by deranged and malevolent idiots has no future.
