Time For the Time Bandits To Come Out of the Shadows

It’s true: it’s that time of year again, already. Time to reset your clocks.

In addition to death and taxes we are now required to surrender an hour of our time to government; tomorrow morning at 2:00 AM you are mandated to turn your clock ahead one hour (unless you live in Arizona or Hawaii where they successfully rebelled against this tyranny years ago). What they do with our hour is anybody’s guess but when we finally get it back next November I know it will be greatly devalued.

In the past you could protest by refusing to adjust your clocks and just being late all summer but no more; now your phone, computer, tablet, smart TV and many alarm clocks adjust themselves with neither your authorization or intervention. It becomes harder and harder to be a time rebel.

And now our devices even try to put time limits on some of our activities, especially if said activities include non-progressive messaging.

I say be a rebel: ignore their stinkin’ limits! And support Marco Rubio’s Sunshine Protection Act, which would make Daylight Saving Time permanent for the entire United States.

Time for the Time Bandits to finally come out of the shadows.

International Women’s Day

And by “international” I mean Somalian and Palestinian. And by “women” I mean Ilhan Omar and Linda Sarsour, Islamic supremacist and anti-Semitic activist par excellence. They have eclipsed old white woman Nancy Pelosi as the face of Progressive women in America. When Pelosi folded on her initial House resolution to condemn Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic comments (without mentioning her by name of course) and instead proposed a non-controversial resolution against “bigotry” akin to mom, apple pie and the golden rule, she conceded power to this new block krewe. She essentially handed leadership of the House over to the non-elected Sarsour , who earlier had vehemently criticized Pelosi:

“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men,” said Ms. Sarsour Tuesday on Facebook.”God forbid the men are upset — no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”

And went on to outline what she expected Nancy to do:

You want a resolution? Condemn all forms of bigotry. All forms of bigotry are unacceptable. We won’t let them pin us up against each other. We stand with Representative Ilhan Omar. Our top priority is the safety of our sister and her family.

Which is exactly what Nancy did, so draw your own conclusion as to who’s ruling the roost.

In case you’ve forgotten, this is what Omar has said that led to the anti-Semitic allegations against her and the demand that she be rebuked:

“Israel has hypnotized the world,” she tweeted in 2012. “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Last month, she wrote that U.S. support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins baby.” A few weeks after that, she told an audience in D.C. that “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

But that would be bad only if she were a Republican white male. Otherwise you should be aware that the Progressive Left, led by the Muslim pro-Hamas, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR contingent who are out to fundamentally change America (in the name of tolerance) is trying to desensitize you to anti-Semitism. If memory serves, that sort of thing has happened before and didn’t end well.

Up till now Hitler has been the gold standard of anti-Semitism. But don’t tell this new krewe that nobody can do Jew-hating like Hitler:

They’ll be like: Hold my beer!

AOC: The Hysteria Is Getting Out Of Control

This is the last post I’m going to do on AOC, at least for this week…or until she does something else completely idiotic: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'I Am As Powerful As A Man' And It Drives Critics 'Crazy.

Um, no, that’s not it. It’s the sort of man that you are “as powerful as” – the equally crazy, misguided and venal ones: Bernie, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Barack Hussein Obama – that drives us crazy.

“The idea that a woman can be as powerful as a man is something that our society can’t deal with,“ the freshman Democrat from New York told The New Yorker in an interview published Monday. “But I am as powerful as a man and it drives them crazy.”

In whose society are you living Sandy? Somalia’s? Saudi Arabia’s? Iran’s? Last time I looked that’s where they have problems with a woman being as powerful as a man. But that’s okay you keep playing the misogynist card anyway. It sure worked for Hillary.

To be fair, I’m not too crazy about the women who you are “as powerful as” either, starting with Chairman Maxine and progressing through all your new-best-freshman-gal-pals.

Image result for alexandria ocasio-cortez ilhan omar rashida tlaibYeah, let’s get rid of the Jews. They’re such haters.

Ocasio-Cortez made the remark in response to a quote from Jezebel’s Ashley Reese: “Women are often either characterized as hideous harpies like Hillary Clinton or pretty idiots whose ‘craziness’ is bound up with their sex appeal ... To her critics, Ocasio-Cortez is firmly in the pretty idiot category.”

It’s probably just me but I’m in the critic column that puts her undeniably in the idiot category but questionably pretty, at least when she opens her big mouth. But what do I know about pretty? My specialty is idiots. And not restricted to women.

Image result for alexandria ocasio-cortez and adam schiff

“I’m just a normal person. I knew that I was not going to be liked. I’m a Democrat. I’m a woman. I’m a young woman. A Latina. And I’m a liberal, a [Democratic Socialists of America] member,” Ocasio-Cortez said. ”

Yeah, weird that people in America don’t like a young idiot who wants to fundamentally change a country whose fundamental principles she knows very little about to a cesspool of socialism. We’re so closedminded. And non-progressive. Let’s be more like Venezuela!

... But this ravenous hysteria ― it’s really getting to a level that is kind of out of control. It’s dangerous and even scary. I have days when it seems some people want to stoke just enough of it to have just enough plausible deniability if something happens to me.”

Now that’s funny: that’s something that Donald Trump might have said.

Socialism Is The Cool New Liberalism

It’s the natural progression of things: Millennials believe calling yourself a socialist is sexy.

Image result for socialism is sexy red shirt

Remember the way-cool Sixties when guys used to attend protests and rallies to get laid, because young women could not resist such caring, passionate, liberal guys? Now there’s an app for that. But as in the way of all flesh the guys have had to up the ante on their care, passion and liberalism - all the way to socialism:

Things have gotten so social with socialism that the young and restless now can consult a dating app called Red Yenta to find the fellow socialist of their dreams.  Creators Marissa Brostoff, 33, and Mindy Isser, 28, were concerned that socialist men were not dating socialist women, and described their new dating platform as a "communal service" to help filter through a potential date's political leanings.

After 12-18 years of publicly funded brainwashing the Millennials and their follow-on generation have been  primed to embrace the utopian ideal of socialism.

"Coolheaded Obaman technocracy is out; strident left-wing moral clarity is in.  And while this atmospheric shift is felt most acutely among the left-literary crowd, it's also bled into the general discourse, such that Teen Vogue is constantly flacking against capitalism and one of the most devastating insults in certain corners of the internet is to call someone a neoliberal,"

Because liberal - neo or otherwise - is no longer cool enough, edgy enough or anti-capitalist enough to be sexy. In order to be sexy these days you need to clamor aboard the train to serfdom.

Image result for socialism is sexy

Leave your baggage on the platform and bring only your faith in AOC, the New Green Deal, a world of zero fossil fuel, 100% renewables and no bovine flatulence. When you arrive at your sexy destination enjoy riding you bike to your mind-numbing public sector job and to que-up to shop with your reusable bags where there will be little choice as to what you buy. Sorry that your educators forgot to tell you what life as a 21st century citizen of the world in a socialist paradise entails.

Socialism's millennial fans don't even know what it is.  Millennials — ignorant of socialism's appalling economic and human-rights history — increasingly embrace socialism and its naively unrealistic prescriptions for ending all human want," says a New York Post editorial, noting that a recent Gallup poll found that 57 percent of Democrats have a positive view of socialism.

"These socialists insist they don't support repressive states like the Soviet Union or North Korea," The Post said, and instead "point to Scandinavian-style socialism in nations like Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as 'true socialism.'  One problem: Those countries aren't socialist."

They tried it, but they don’t necessarily like it.

Now they’re fixing it. To paraphrase Meryl Streep: “when are we going to stop brainwashing our children!”

It’s Fat Tuesday And I Don’t Have a Kitchen

Did I tell you I’m having new countertops installed tomorrow? That means today the handyman is coming to tear out the sink and cooktop so – no kitchen for Fat Tuesday! And I’ve got to to pack up EVERYTHING.  I took inventory last night and was surprised how much crap I’ve managed to cram into the cupboards and drawers of what is a very modest sized kitchen.

So as I need to get busy I leave you with this gem to process: AOC’s mother left New York for the comparative sanity of Florida precisely because of the high tax policy her daughter champions. Because in real life the “tax the rich” mantra sweeps up all the little people’s money before it ever gets to the big guys.

Image result for tax the rich

‘I lived in the New York area for most of my life but I started being unable to afford it,’ Blanca said in the living-room of her modest but tidy Florida house…The mother-of-two said the couple took a mortgage and received help from other family members who pooled some of their resources…Blanca said it was a no-brainer, adding: ‘I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.’ – Daily Mail

And she claims her daughter never had plans for getting into politics

Early on, AOC didn't show signs she'd get into politics - except that she talked incessantly and itched to show off her brains, her mother said. 

Yes, she still likes to strut out that Really Big Brain (RBB®) of hers. Unfortunately her RBM (really big mouth) often gets ahead of her RBB®.

Image result for alexandria ocasio-cortez really big brainYou would think a RBB® would now that House Rules prohibit Members from using their power to make threats based on political affiliation

Mama added:

'She wasn't raised to be a socialist,' Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez said. 'That's not how Puerto Ricans are. She's a democratic socialist, and it's very different' 

Now we know where AOC got that RBB® of hers. AOC should have used it study up on existing campaign finance laws before letting her chief of staff illegally move $885G in campaign contributions 'off the books,' according to a FEC complaint. Or paying her boyfriend from PAC funds.

Meanwhile, the good news for AOC is  1) Hillary is NOT running for president again, so the “First Female President” slot is still open, and 2) AOC looks to have all the attributes required to claim that title as her own: a RBB® (just ask her anything) and blatant disregard for the laws.

SPECIAL PROGRAMMING NOTE: don’t forget today is Fat Tuesday, aka Paczki Day (improbably pronounced “poonch-key” or ponch-key depending on where you are from)!


Savor your custard and jelly filled paczkis as Lent begins tomorrow - which is God’s way of giving you a second chance for your New Year’s resolution.

The Making of a Limousine Liberal: A 12 Step Program

Here are the steps:

1. Choose parental units (preferably minority) at least one of whom is willing to carry you to full term, and assign you a gender at birth. (Note: already 2 violations of liberal principles)

Ocasio-Cortez is seen as an infant with her father Sergio Ocasio-Roman, an architect and the CEO of his own company. He died of lung cancer in 2008 aged just 48AOC as a baby with her father

2. Go through childhood and adolescence as your assigned gender and after adequate programming demonstrate for others right to choose their own gender from a menu of 31 options.

3. If you’re not lucky enough to have a postman as a father, claim to having been raised in a “working class” family (this may even be true if you consider a family supported by an architect father who owns his own company specializing in remodeling and renovations to be “working class.”) Also mention that your mother cleaned houses and drove school busses, no need to explain when and for how long. Remember, it’s your truth.

4. Get into an expensive top tier college (not hard if you were fortunate enough to have chosen at least one minority parental unit in step #1) pay (or have paid, again, if you chose wisely in step 1) $300,000 for a degree in international relations and Economics. These credentials will result in you automatically being hailed as as “sharp,” “smart”  and “extraordinary” by the usual suspects in the media.

5. Spend most of your free time during college working for Limousine Liberals like Ted Kennedy, doing community organizing and serving as president of Alianza Latina, BU's largest Latin American student organization.

6. After spending $300k for your international relations/economics degree take a job as a bar tender in order to continue your political ambitions by attending protests around the country. Volunteer to work for Limousine-Liberal-in-Waiting, Bernie Sanders to see how it’s done.

7. Go on national TV to demonstrate how “sharp,” “smart”  and “extraordinary” you are by claiming “unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs” and “unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their kids.”

8. Win the “Who Wants To Be A Brand New Congress” game.

9. Put friends with benefits on the payroll once you win the Congressional lottery. If challenged, play your race card (see #1)

10. Develop a Middle School level policy paper with a very politically charged name like “The New Green Deal.”

11. Strike a pose looking very, very intelligent. (very, very important).

"He's not on my payroll. They were not working for me and they were two separate entities here," Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said. (Associated Press) Related image

12. Take your rightful (and literal) place among the Limousine Liberals.

The leading advocate for the proposed “Green New Deal” was less than four blocks from a Queens subway station when she hopped into a white Chrysler Town & Country with livery plates. - NYPost

Because once you’ve completed the check list for the making of a Limousine Liberal mass transit is for the little people, not important leaders of the elite ruling class. It’s always and everywhere the same with socialists.

Foraging For Mushrooms

The new MSM meme, “Trump NoKo Deal Fails,” has prompted a new round of “Oh noes” concerning imminent nuclear destruction, not seen since the “Cold War.” WaPo’s gender confused Charlie Jane Anders opined that “Pop culture is no longer full of apocalyptic nuclear visions. That’s too bad.” Now that Trump is president, and the promise of his impeachment is fading, the MSM wants everyone to live in an agitated state of a new fear and dread.

Whatever happens as President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to talk about Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program, the risk of a devastating nuclear conflict appears higher now than at any time since the Cold War. And yet, pop culture has more or less stopped warning us of the dangers of atomic devastation — and that’s too bad. We need fresh stories to help us understand the renewed and complex risks we face, and to nudge us out of our complacency.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set the infamous Doomsday Clock at two minutes to midnight in January 2018, making this our closest call since the 1950s.

Got that? The failure of “Russia, Russia, Russia!” and convicted liar Michael “The Rat” Cohen to provide a clear path to impeachment has left the MSM frantically searching for new anti-Trump memes to terrify moms across the heartland. After spending decades concentrating on First World dangers like racism, misogyny, patriarchy,  homophobia, transphobia and Islamophobia, look for MSM and pop culture to shift their fear and loathing of Trump to a different platform: Trump-induced nuclear holocaust.

Bring back those scary stories of survival in backyard fallout shelters

and grade school air raid drills.

Ooooo! That’s scary!

Let’s make a new round of post-WWII Cold War era of Federal Civil Defense efforts to educate and reassure us that we can survive an atomic attack that – no matter its source – will be PDJT’s fault.

Civil Defense PSA (1953)

They will ignore the fact that Ronaldus Magnus dealt with the real Cold War USSR  threat and ended that conflict through strength not appeasement. Of course that was back when most people in this country still believed it to be the shining city on the hill. It’s not that Reagan didn’t have enemies, but none who were actually rooting against their country just to take him down. President Trump doesn’t have that luxury. When he walked away from the little potbellied pig from NoKo – who serves as a stand in for China – because he demanded some appeasement from the US it was not surprising that the MSM blamed our President rather than our enemy.

So at a time when many journals like ScienceNordic reports that the world is increasingly more peaceful now they see it as the ideal time to rekindle the fear of nuclear annihilation - ipso fatso you can count on “Russia! Russia! Russia!” being replaced with “Nuclear! Nuclear! Nuclear!”

Nuclear Armageddon provided conveniently heightened stakes for storytellers, but those fantasies made Americans aware of a genuine threat…"Popular culture was an important factor in shaping people's perceptions and levels of concern about nuclear war,"… Let's hope pop culture starts to warn us once again.

Not because there’s anything that you can do about it but because it’s the best propaganda tool they’ve had in ages. Maybe even better than racism.

So what do you say Pop Culture generators?  Let’s mobilize, propagandize, scare the bejesus out of soccer moms! Let’s all forage for mushrooms!
