Democrat Party at work

If you get your information from places like the NYT and CNN,* you likely are ignorant of many things. I am here to help.

The Biden Administration — I don’t just say Biden because he’s only a prop — has nominated a gal named Saule Omarova to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, whatever the Devil that is.

What’s noteworthy here is that she would be nominated at all. She favors eliminating all private bank accounts and deposits. This came out last March when she spoke at a conference entitled “Law and Political Economy: Democracy Beyond Neoliberalism.”

Neoliberalism is a fancy synonym for capitalism and, interestingly, is a very popular term in Mexico. Leftists use it willy-nilly to badmouth opponents. Our doofus president often refers to political opponents as neoliberals. It’s important to keep in mind that it means capitalists. If you oppose capitalism, we know what you are.

Make the economy equitable.

— Saule Omarova

Omarova says her plan would — wait for it — “make the economy more equitable** for everyone.” She wants to eliminate all banks and transfer all deposits to the Federal Reserve, i.e. the government.

Yes, the Biden Administration wants to give this woman an important post. The nomination is, sensibly, facing opposition. Let us hope that neoliberal opposition prevails.

Gestapo at work

But let us move on to something else, today’s FBI which recently conducted a pre-dawn raid with 10 agents, spotlights and a battering ram on the home of James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas.

His “crime” had something to do with a diary of Sleepy Joe’s daughter that O’Keefe had legally obtained and long since turned over to law enforcement. So the raid was not about that at all. It was about intimidation.

You can read more about it here.

It resembled the 2019 raid at the home of Roger Stone. Pre-dawn, 29 agents, 17 vehicles, guns drawn and a battering ram at the ready. Stone’s alleged crime? Mass murder? Terrorism?

No. It was lying to the FBI.

But again, the sole reason for that raid was intimidation. Terrorism from the Deep State. I always hesitate to use words like Nazi, racist, Gestapo because those are the common epithets of the Left. But Gestapo really seems to fit here. Gestapo tactics.

Stone, 66 years old with white hair, was hauled off in cuffs. That’s an FBI emblem above. It says Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.

It’s a fine time to live in Mexico.

The power of words

One would be hard-pressed to find a better example of leftist skullduggery and conservative naiveté than what has been done with the words “liberal” and “progressive.”

Among the quotes you’ll find elsewhere on this website — the right side if you’re using a PC — is this from Dennis Prager:

The usurpation of the word “liberal” by the left has been a catastrophe.

In spite of what you may read or hear elsewhere, there is only one sort of liberal, the classical variety. Liberals believe in freedom of speech, capitalism, nation-states, etc., traits not embraced by leftists. Quite the contrary.

I’ve had people tell me that liberalism used to mean one thing, but now it’s another. That is not true. What we have now are leftists wrapping the cloak of “liberalism,” the word, around their shoulders. Think wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Being” liberal” sounds sweet. Almost everyone wants to think of themselves as liberal because the opposite would be tight-minded, a nasty individual, and who wants to be seen that way? We all want to be liberal, right? And progressive! Who’s not for progress?

I am. You are.

So leftists have stolen and embraced these adjectives as their own, which makes perfect sense. What makes no sense whatsoever is that conservatives, nincompoops as we so often are, go along with the wordplay, the fraud, the theft.

In this six-minute video, Prager illustrates the stark differences between leftists and liberals. Do you call Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris liberals? If so, stop it right now. Sleepy Joe doesn’t know what he is. He reads his script, written by leftists. Not liberals.

JFK and FDR were liberals. Today, they’d be tarred and feathered by the Democrat Party.

Long gone like Elvis

THE AMERICAN Left has left the common-sense building, and I don’t think they’re coming back, but I wish they would.

So let’s put aside for the moment the nutty socialist stuff and the “everybody is a racist” mantra and just focus on immigration.

There are approximately 7.5 billion people in the world, and many of them would like to live in America. In fact, tens of millions of folks have illegally entered the USA since Ronald Reagan signed an immigrant amnesty bill in 1986.

Democrats, at least many of them, are happy the illegal people are here and are clamoring for millions more to come in the name of justice and diversity. Even though immigrant families are heavy users of welfare programs, and the nation currently owes 22 trillion dollars, liberals don’t care. The left actually wants to pay for the healthcare of foreign nationals who break U.S. immigration law.

Of course, this defies reason and will eventually lead to very bad things for all Americans as the national debt will eventually collapse the economy. Again, the left doesn’t care, and some look forward to that because socialism might replace capitalism if there’s ever a depression, which is possible with the crushing debt.

So maybe there is some common sense here after all.

Pigskin & flopping fishes

MOST EVERY weekday morning, the two of us walk six laps (20 minutes) around the neighborhood plaza. It’s fairly routine with the exception of Thursdays when there’s a mercado set up there. People selling stuff. Free enterprise. Capitalism!

Thursday is the best day for our power walks because there’s not simply exercise on the plate but lots of fun stuff to gawk at.

Two of my favorites are the pigskins being boiled in a big tub of oil. It smells like my childhood at my maternal grandparents’ farm in southwest Georgia way over half a century ago. The other favorite, though it’s a bit grim, are the flopping fishes.

New ImageA woman sells fresh fish — you know they’re fresh because many are flopping — atop a cloth she spreads on the sidewalk. No matter the hour we do our walk, some of those fish are flopping about, wondering where the water went.

Some flop right off the cloth.

There are lots of other things to see. Women set up small stands and sell stuff to eat, hot grub over charcoal fires. (Charcoal smoke always reminds me of Haiti.) Others spread cloth on the sidewalk and display used clothing, some obviously quite used.

This invariably slows down my child bride’s power walk because for her clothing for sale — especially if it’s cheap — is like catnip to a feline.

No matter. I keep going, and she eventually catches up.

1200-28731554-asiago-cheeseThere are two large stands of lovely fruit and veggies. You can find nicer, fresher merchandise there than you usually encounter in the supermarket. There’s also a fellow who sells cheese, just cheese. He arrives in a white truck.

Yes, Thursdays are the fun walks. The other days are just pedestrian events.

But we bought a mango today which, when combined with onion slices and some magic sauce my child bride makes, creates a very nice salad, which will complete the Greek garlic chicken I made yesterday in the crockpot for today’s lunch.

Life moves along for better or worse, usually better.
