One can always count on Sky News Australia to speak wisely and directly. Here Alan Jones correctly says that a presidential resignation must happen soon. And the main problem with that is Kamala Harris waiting in the wings, a woman who was dropped from the Democrat presidential primaries early on because no one liked her. With reason.
We have entered the Twilight Zone, and the mainstream media, CNN, The New York Times*, The Washington Post, etc., are hiding this from their clueless readers.
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.
Interesting take here on the numerous otherwise-decent people who still vote for the Democrat Party. I have long contended than many, perhaps even most, people who continue to support the Democrat Party, now more correctly called the Democrat Socialist Party, do so out of habit and not paying sufficient attention to today’s world.
Or paying attention to the wrong news sources.
Dave Morrison, a Los Angeles-area musician, house painter and YouTube whiz, was a Democrat until the 2012 presidential election. I was a Democrat till four years earlier, so Dave is a little slower than I am. He was a Democrat for, I suspect, the same reasons I was, family tradition and ignorance of the Democrat Party’s true history.
He makes a case here that many Democrats, especially middle-aged and older folks, are victims of a sort of Stockholm Syndrome. He makes his case politely and sensibly.
He is a forgiving soul.

This short video is dedicated to my cyber-amigo Antonio who, I believe, is the sole native Mexican who ever passes by The Unseen Moon, which I appreciate because I’m all about multiculturalism and diversity. Okay, that’s a laughable lie, but I do appreciate his comments.
And why am I dedicating this video to Antonio who is a man of the left? Because his reaction to a recent post — Columbia students join the Klan — was that he suspected the interviewer was cherry-picking, which is to say intentionally interviewing people who would prove the point he wanted to make. Cherry-picking is easy to do, of course, but I do not believe that other video was an example of it because I know that leftist ideology runs rampant at American universities. It would be difficult to find students willing to state the contrary of what that video demonstrated.
In this video, a young university graduate tells her story, how she entered her university as a wide-eyed idealist and left it four years later as a sensible conservative. I hope her experience is not rare. I hope other university students exit universities similarly wised up, even though they must keep quiet on campus to avoid ostracism or actual violence.
Is this another example of cherry-picking? I think not.
