Vox Unintentionally Proves That Democrats Are Killing Our Democratic Republic

This screed by Excitable Zach Beauchamp, one of the crazier folks at Vox, is an attempt to dunk on Republicans, but, hits Democrats right in the nads

RBG, the 2020 election, and the rolling crisis of American democracy

For much of this fall, Americans have fretted about a legitimacy crisis surrounding the 2020 election. But now, after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the hypocritical Republican rush to fill her seat in an election year, it’s clear that the crisis is here.

Liberal democracy only functions when major parties accept the right of their opponents to govern. The purpose of the system is to take the antagonism that defines politics everywhere and channel it, creating rules and establishing norms that prevent one segment of the population from crushing others’ ability to participate in and shape the system.

Democrats have been bleating about the legitimacy of the 2016 election even before it happened. They questioned the 2000 and 2004 elections because they lost. They’ve refused to accept the right of Trump and the Republican led Senate to govern. The purpose of the filibuster in the Senate is to keep the majority from running roughshod over the minority party, yet, they threaten to get rid of it.

The rest of the piece is an attempt to say “Republicans bad, Democrats good”, yet, Democrats still won’t accept the results of the 2016 election, won by the rules, and want to get rid of the Electoral College. To the ending

This is terra incognita. The fairness of our elections has come under fundamental question, as has the Court that’s supposed to provide legal redress in exactly this kind of dispute. There is no road map for what may lie ahead, and getting out of it will require a genuine reckoning with what got us here — that one of our major parties has spent decades convincing itself that its rival wielding power is an unacceptable catastrophe.

What this is really all about is delegitimizing the Supreme Court, particularly if Trump gets his next pick through before election day, and to set the stage to challenge the results if they lose, blaming Republicans and Trump for cheating. Sure sounds like they are very worried about Handsy Joe, eh?

California, Which Can’t Keep The Lights On, Requires All Passenger Vehicles To Be Zero Carbon By 2035

Unless some serious new technology is developed, what will happen is no vehicles will be sold in California. Besides, even plugins like Tesla’s are not zero emissions

From the article

Amid a slew of wildfires which have burned millions of acres up and down the West Coast, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an ambitious executive order Wednesday requiring that all new passenger vehicles sold in the state be zero-emission by 2035.

The governor claims the order, which would halt the sale of new gas-powered vehicles, would decrease greenhouse gas emissions in the state by 35%.

“Pull away from the gas pumps,” Newsom said in a news conference. “Let us no longer be victims of geopolitical dictators that manipulate global supply chains and global markets.”

Furthermore, Newsom’s order also calls for all medium and heavy-duty vehicles which operate in California to be zero-emission by 2045.

So, basically, most manufacturers will pull most of their products from the state. Even standard hybrids, like the Prius, Insight, Camry, Accord, CRV, and RAV4 hybrids, among others, wouldn’t qualify.

You know what’s missing from Gavin’s EO and speech and all the news reports? And mention of him pledging to only drive in zero emission vehicles. See, this stuff is always for the peons. See, if you read the actual EO, it says “where feasible” for medium and heavy duty vehicles, meaning his bulletproof limo is excluded, as are all the vehicles of Hollywood celebs.

Biden Voters Riot, Commit Arson, Vandalism, And Attempted Murder

This is supposedly over justice for someone they didn’t know in the least but, they have a Cause, so, they commit mayhem in lots of areas where black people live and have businesses. But, hey, this gives the uber-white liberals a chance to destroy black property and businesses, in the ultimate white liberal privilege

13 vandalism reports confirmed in Durham from protests stemming over Breonna Taylor decision

A small group gathered in the heart of downtown Durham on Wednesday night in response to a grand jury’s decision to not indict police officers on criminal charges in relation to the death of Breonna Taylor, a Black woman who was fatally shot by Kentucky police in her home.

A Twitter group, DurhamBurn, released a flyer shortly after the decision against fired officer Brett Hankison. The flyer reads in part, “JUSTICE FOR BREONNA TAYLOR | NO GOOD COPS – NO BAD PROTESTORS – NO MEGAPHONES”

Durham police told ABC11 there were 13 confirmed vandalism reports overnight. Windows at police headquarters had “revenge” and “burn it down” messages spraypainted on them. Several businesses had shattered windows and trash cans were scattered across some streets.

So far, no charges have been filed.

Our breaking news crew says somewhere around 50 people showed up to the march. One self-described group of anarchists involved, called the Underground Resistance Network threw rocks and spray-painted buildings.

Well, this makes sense, right? Commit violence because you don’t like the way police committed violence. This stuff occurred in Democratic Party run cities across the country. They set the police HQ on fire in St. Louis, and

(Breitbart) The Kentucky Police Department on Wednesday confirmed that two police officers were shot during violent protests in reaction to the decision by a grand jury not to indict police officers for the death of Breonna Taylor.

Both officers were being treated in the hospital, Acting Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Robert Schroeder confirmed in a press conference and both were stable. One officer was currently undergoing surgery. One suspect is in police custody

This was as “mostly peaceful” protesters were telling the police “all y’all get ready to f*cking die” and liberal favorite (and Jew hater) Linda Sarsour said it was “time to rise up.” Back to original article

Durham activist, Paul Scott, a loud voice in Durham’s Black nationalist community condemned the violence of the night saying that the largely white group hijacked the Breonna Taylor tragedy to settle political scores with the White House.

“There has been a history in this country of white anarchists manipulating Black suffering,” Scott said. “In this country right now, courtesy of the man in the White House, there is a civil war going on between white people and they’re using Black people as political pawns.”

Scott almost had it, but, had to delve into Trump Derangement Syndrome because white liberals are crazy moonbats and violent. As the violence was raging, here’s Biden

Kamala did much the same. It was a tragedy that Breonna was shot and killed, but, if you’re hanging with drug dealers and other criminals, that’s the chance you take.

BTW, the first thing you get when clicking the link in the tweet is a popup to donate. So, literally fundraising off Breonna’s death.

China Pledges Carbon Neutral By 2060, Warmists Squee

Climate cultists, who are mostly comprised of Modern Socialists, love them some China, eh?

Climate change: China aims for ‘carbon neutrality by 2060’

China will aim to hit peak emissions before 2030 and for carbon neutrality by 2060, President Xi Jinping has announced.

Mr Xi outlined the steps when speaking via videolink to the UN General Assembly in New York.

The announcement is being seen as a significant step in the fight against climate change.

China is the world’s biggest source of carbon dioxide, responsible for around 28% of global emissions.

With global climate negotiations stalled and this year’s conference of the parties (COP26) postponed until 2021, there had been little expectation of progress on the issue at the UN General Assembly.

However China’s president surprised the UN gathering by making a bold statement about his country’s plans for tackling emissions.

There’s nary a skeptical word coming from the BBC, other Leftist/Warmist news networks, the United Nations, or any other Warmists. But, they do try and dunk on Trump

Observers believe that in making this statement at this time, the Chinese leader is taking advantage of US reluctance to address the climate question.

“Xi Jinping’s climate pledge at the UN, minutes after President Donald Trump’s speech, is clearly a bold and well calculated move,” said Li Shuo, an expert on Chinese climate policy from Greenpeace Asia.

“It demonstrates Xi’s consistent interest in leveraging the climate agenda for geopolitical purposes.”

Why would anyone believe China? Trump is 100% wrong about ‘climate change’ being a Chinese hoax, but, China is certainly full of bull fritters in saying they will do anything.

The NY Times would rather take China’s side because #TrumpDerangementSyndrom

Vernon Jones: Trump’s Done More For Blacks In 4 Years Than Biden Did In 40

Perhaps because Trump sees blacks as actual people, as individuals, as citizens and Americans, unlike Democrats, who see blacks as a voting block to be patronized when elections come around, and people to keep down in urban plantations between elections. They just switched their Jim Crow and segregationist beliefs around

EXC – Democrat Vernon Jones: Trump Did More For Black Americans In 4 Years Than Biden Has In Over 40

There was a time the Democratic Party was home to many of America’s leading lights on race relations — people who were willing to ignore or even defy mainstream opinion to advance a cause they knew to be right and just. Black Americans enthusiastically gravitated toward that, even overlooking the privately bigoted views of many of Democrat leaders. Before long, however, the Democrat establishment began to take our support for granted, paying lip service to the cause of racial justice on the campaign trail, but then perpetuating an unjust status quo in office.

From his earliest days in politics, Joe Biden has employed this cynical strategy with infuriating consistency. As he reminded voters just last year, he proudly collaborated with openly segregationist colleagues during his early days in the U.S. Senate, a time when he was also an adamant foe of integrating America’s public schools.

Two decades later, Biden led the charge to implement one of the most racially discriminatory policy regimes since the end of Jim Crow: the “tough-on-crime” criminal justice laws of the late 1980s and early ‘90s, describing his position as “lock the S.O.B.’s up.” Most notoriously, he played a leading role in crafting the notorious 1994 crime bill that dramatically increased the incarceration rate for Black Americans, ushering in an era of mass incarceration that devastated our communities for generations.

That record didn’t hurt him when he sought reelection in lily-white Delaware, and as his ambitions took him to greater national prominence, he arrogantly expected that a “-D” after his name would be all he needed to secure the votes of millions of Black Americans.

That’s the way it works. For them, blacks aren’t allowed to vote anything other than Dem, otherwise they are not considered to be black. Anyhow, Joe has done nothing, even as VP to a black president, as Jones highlights in many more paragraphs

President Trump is Biden’s polar opposite. While Biden was turning a blind eye to the rioting, looting, and indiscriminate violence afflicting Democrat-run cities all over the country this summer, the President was demanding that Democrat governors and mayors allow their police forces to restore law and order, pointing out that destroying small businesses in majority-Black communities does nothing to advance the cause of racial justice but does negatively impact the people who live in those communities.

Whereas Biden assumes that Black people will turn out in droves to vote for him despite his long history of working against our interests, President Trump is grateful for every Black vote he receives, rightly viewing that support as vindication of his successful efforts to empower and uplift Black Americans.

As a result of the Blue Collar Boom created by the Trump administration’s pro-growth economic policies, for instance, the Black unemployment rate reached multiple all-time lows prior to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Again, Trump sees blacks as people, not a monolithic voting block.

Even more importantly, Donald Trump achieved something that Democrat politicians have been promising for decades, yet always failed to deliver: criminal justice reform that corrects the gross injustices that Biden helped to put in place all those years ago. Thanks to the FIRST STEP Act, thousands of non-violent Black inmates have been able to earn early release, and thousands more have received help developing the personal and professional skills necessary to become productive members of society.

For all the Dem yammering about Trump being a racist, he’s done more for blacks than Joe even thought of doing.

Bummer: Once Again This Won’t Be The Climate Change (scam) Election

2016 was supposed to be the ‘climate change’ election. And 2012. 2008. Even 2004 with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq raging and Islamic jihadis attacking was supposed to be a ‘climate change’ election. Then there was 2000, with hyper-Warmist Al Gore running, and he really didn’t push the issue that much. Plus all the mid-terms. Members of the Cult of Climastrology had their hopes up, to no avail

This won’t be the climate election after all. So what?

This could have been the year of the first real climate change election. It probably won’t be.

After years of climate change being low on voters’ priorities, getting almost no news coverage as a campaign policy issue and only getting the occasional debate question, 2020 had the potential to be a blockbuster year for climate change.

But instead, with less than 50 days until Election Day and voters in some states already voting, the COVID-19 pandemic is dominating the scene, along with racial justice, the economy and health care.

And since Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death Friday, the fight over replacing her on the court has overshadowed every other issue and might remain front and center through the rest of the campaign.

Climate got a moment in the spotlight earlier last week when President Trump and his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, focused on the wildfires in the West, highlighting their stark differences.

Trump denied that climate change was fueling disasters or even that temperatures would continue to rise. Biden, in response, called Trump a “climate arsonist” and touted his climate plan. But then the campaigns returned to regular programming.

If you aren’t familiar with E&E News, they are very much a propaganda arm of the Cult of Climastrology. To have them admit all this must have sent their Warmist employees running for their safe spaces and coloring books. Especially the part about ‘climate change’ being “low on voters’ priorities”. That admission must have hurt their hearts. Despite attempting to spread awareness since 1988 and ramping up their scaremongering ever since, it’s still low hanging fruit.

“COVID-19, the economic meltdown, the public health crisis, Black Lives Matter are all top-tier issues. That’s a reality,” said Kevin Curtis, executive director of NRDC Action Fund, which is the political arm of the Natural Resources Defense Council and supports Biden.

“Accepting that reality and not ignoring it, I feel really good about where climate is for the next president, assuming it’s Joe Biden,” he said.

Let’s say Biden wins: he probably won’t do much at all, as it’ll be tough for him to have the energy to do anything, especially since he can’t be bothered to do all that much while running for president. Stealth president Kamala Harris will be more interested in BLM and amnesty for illegals.

By many measures, voters aren’t prioritizing climate much more than before. The Pew Research Center last month found it to be voters’ 11th highest priority out of 12 it polled. Gallup said in January that climate was the seventh most likely issue for voters to rank as “extremely important.”

That’s despite numerous developments since the 2016 presidential race. Dire reports from organizations like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the U.S. government painted a bleak picture of a future without significant greenhouse gas cuts.

Personally, I’d love one whole debate devoted to ‘climate change’, in which Joe can wander about discussing that thing, you know that thing, come on, man, it’s the thing (it’s not the only thing from Dementia Joe), while Trump can explain what the climate cultists actually want to do, with their taxes and taking away freedom, liberty, and choice. And while pointing out that the biggest proponents of Doing Something are utter climahypocrites

“Climate is going to have huge resonance in this election, particularly with young people,” said Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate activist; former presidential candidate; and co-chairman of Biden’s Climate Engagement Advisory Council, a group of activists tasked with promoting his environmental agenda.

Didn’t the “climate candidate” flame out early, along with fellow Warmist Jay Inslee?

But Mike McKenna, an energy policy consultant and former senior official in Trump’s White House, said general election voters have never prioritized climate or the environment, and there’s little reason to think this year will be different.

“The race is coming down to a referendum on either management of the coronavirus (in which case Mr. Biden wins) or management of public safety (in which Mr. Trump probably wins),” McKenna said in an email.

Biden has a clear climate plan, he said, but “no one is paying any attention to it.” McKenna added, “I just think that the general flow of the campaign has been focused on the candidates rather than what they might do.”

It always drops to the bottom because it is a bottom issue. And, sadly, the focus on it reduces the focus on real environmental issues. Trump would be wise to position cleaning up the environmental pollution in low income areas.

Trump To Announce Supreme Court Pick Saturday, Ruining Democrats Weekend

Democrats will be raging all day Saturday, then Sunday as they come to grips, and will wake up Monday feeling more unhinged than normal

Trump court announcement set for Saturday as Amy Coney Barrett emerges as a favorite

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he plans to announce his new Supreme Court nominee at 5 p.m. on Saturday, claiming that the country will need all nine justices in order to decide on the legality of mail-in ballots following the November elections.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett has emerged as Trump’s overwhelming favorite to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to several people familiar with the deliberations.

Barrett was back at the White House Tuesday for a second day in a row, according to two sources familiar. The sources said she impressed Trump and others during initial White House meetings on Monday.

Trump has not finalized his decision, and with days to go until he announces his pick on Saturday, his thinking could change.

Trump is supposedly working out a time to meet with Judge Barbara Lagoa on Friday while he’s down in Miami, but

Lagoa remains on the list but multiple people familiar with the matter told CNN that Trump is fading on the idea of picking her. While Trump was initially enthused at the prospect of nominating a Cuban-American from Florida, a critical electoral battleground, Lagoa hasn’t been previously vetted for the Supreme Court and some advisers suggested it would be a heavy lift to clear a new name quickly.

And that’s the reason I used the CNN article, as it is one of the few who notes this. Barrett has been fully vetted previously, and it will be much easier for her to go through the process of question in the Senate, at least by Republicans, with Democrats using their time making speeches and accusations with nary a question to be seen.

Trump has said the end-of-week timing for the pick was meant to show respect for Ginsburg, who will lie in repose at the Supreme Court on Wednesday and Thursday before a private interment at Arlington National Cemetery next week.

But the President is also keen on extending the dramatics of his selection, likening it to his version of a running mate selection during an election year, according to one adviser.

ZOMG, Trump is doing the showmanship of Politics! And now Democrats will have to give up their other violent protests to have anti-woman on the Supreme Court violent protests.

Anti-Capitalist Noam Chomsky Writes Anti-Capitalism Book About Green New Deal

I’m starting to think that this whole climate crisis (scam) is actually a trojan horse for something else. Anyone else feel that way? Chomksy is interviewed by hyper-Warmist Dave Roberts

Noam Chomsky’s Green New Deal

Several books on the Green New Deal have been released in the past year or two, but none boasts a more illustrious set of authors than Climate Crisis and the Green New Deal, out Tuesday from Robert Pollin and Noam Chomsky.

Pollin teaches economics and co-directs the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He has been writing about climate economics and green growth for years, as well as consulting with various nonprofits and governments (he advised Obama’s Energy Department for a few years) on policy and poverty reduction.

Chomsky, of course, has been a notable intellectual presence on the left since the mid-20th century. He’s an analytic philosopher, one of the founders of cognitive science, and a giant in the field of linguistics, alongside his notable contributions as a historian, essayist, and social critic. The author of more than 100 books, he is known as one of the most cited authors alive.

He’s also a massive America hater

“Noam Chomsky has turned out book after book, pamphlet after pamphlet and speech after speech with one message, and one message alone: America is the Great Satan; it is the fount of evil in the world. In Chomsky’s demented universe, America is responsible not only for its own bad deeds, but for the bad deeds of others, including those of the terrorists who struck the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In this attitude he is the medium for all those who now search the ruins of Manhattan not for the victims and the American dead, but for the ‘root causes’ of the catastrophe that befell them….

“The theology that Chomsky preaches is Manichean, with America as its evil principle. For Chomsky no evil, however great, can exceed that of America, and America is also the cause of evil in others.

Anyhow

The book is structured around a series of questions, prompts, and discussion points from political scientist C.J. Polychroniou (credited as a co-author), and despite its compact length, it is a sweeping inquiry into the nature of climate change, its relationship to capitalism, what a global Green New Deal might look like, and the effects it may have on politics.

David Roberts

Naomi Klein’s climate book This Changes Everything famously argued that consumer capitalism and climate change are effectively one and the same, that the one is the inevitable consequence of the other. Is that something unique to capitalism, or is it just human nature to be shortsighted?

Noam Chomsky

We should recognize that if global warming is an automatic consequence of capitalism, we might as well say goodbye to each other. I would like to overcome capitalism, but it’s not in the relevant time scale. Global warming basically has to be taken care of within the framework of existing institutions, modifying them as necessary. That’s the problem we face.

So, he’d like to get rid of capitalism, but, he’s pragmatic enough to know that won’t happen easily.
