It’s been a quite a couple of weeks for leftist-disruption politics. First, several states with Virginia taking the lead have introduced legalized infanticide (https://youtu.be/OMFzZ5I30dg).
Sen. Elizabeth Warren was caught lying again, using “American Indian” as her race for the State Bar of Texas (https://youtu.be/oJICQqmb9mE). She had stated previously that she never did such; wondering if that is racist?
Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax was accused by two women of sexual impropriety. All of a sudden, Democrats are asking for people not to jump to conclusions and are demanding due process (https://youtu.be/AG7_bt0gSMU). At the same time, several Democrat black clergy and civic leaders stated they will give Fairfax and blackfaces Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring an exclusive special second chance.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff who has adamantly protected the Robert Mueller investigation of President Donald Trump recently began chastising Mueller because there are no signs of Russian collusion.
It’s true, the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has made it known they have found no concrete evidence after a two-year investigation that the Trump campaign knowingly colluded with the Russians to pocket the last presidential election.
In fact, some prominent Mueller staff are leaving the process and many believe that Mueller will not even issue a formal report.
Documents obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request confirmed the FBI’s Lisa Page tried to work a deal with the State Department to minimize the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Page’s boss, disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe recently admitted there was a coup plot on President Trump using the 25th Amendment. Recall that Page testified that the FBI had no evidence of Russian collusion at the time.
It was also revealed that disgraced former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr fully briefed “both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased,” (https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/425739-fisa-shocker-doj-official-warned-steele-dossier-was-connected-to-clinton).
The relationship to the Clinton campaign and the non-validity of the dossier was largely withheld from the FISA court to obtain secret warrants to actively spy on a presidential campaign.
Rep. Alexandra “the world will end in 12-years” Ocasio-Cortez sprung her Green New Deal on us, huge on promises and no details. The vague environmental manifesto dishes out free college, job guarantees and taxpayer funds deposited in your checking account even if you decide not to work.
Ocasio-Cortez wants a ban of 99 percent of the cars currently on the road, ban oil, ban natural gas, ban nuclear power and rebuild every building in the nation to unknown energy efficiency standards, all within 10 years.
On top of that she wants to ban all air traffic and cattle while creating a high-speed rail network blanketing the country.
Of course, the most important aspect of the Green New Deal is the alternative forms of energy needed, new forms of local mobility and the funding source of the mega-trillions of dollars needed, but she does not have a clue what those are exactly. Our young people blindly follow the leftist-disruptors until they know the facts (watch this: https://youtu.be/MoziALuwbtg).
You will be happy to know that presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren all signed onto the outlandish Green New Deal.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom lost the Green New Deal feeling and announced the end of the outrageous and uneconomical high-speed rail project from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The project was drowning in billions of dollars of red ink and there was no end in sight.
Even the vaunted New York City subway system has been labeled as “broken” by City Metric transportation writer Kayla Matthews, citing “outdated infrastructure and faulty technology” as key issues, noting ridership is declining.
Keep in mind that state and metro Atlanta political leaders want to emulate those transit systems, spending billions and billions of your tax dollars.
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg is proposing paying local gang members $1.5 million in taxpayer funds to get them to stop shooting people. The program gives cash to gang members for graduating from the crumbling school district, listed on the “negative certification” list maintained by the state’s Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team for budgetary mismanagement.
Former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams was cited for more state tax issues and tax liens. As you might guess, she is blaming others working for her. Abrams’ stark inability to manage her own affairs is proof enough that she is not the person needed to oversee the state government.
Finally, one of Fayette County’s local state legislators, Sen. Valencia Seay, introduced a bill increasing legislative pay by 300 percent for a position that covers a 40-day General Assembly.
All of that in less than 30-days!
These were some of the people who told us a decade ago that Hugo Chavez, the communist autocrat, and Venezuela was the ideal model for the United States to follow. (If you want to watch the political left do absolute intellectual gymnastics trying to defend Venezuelan socialism, one of the most oil rich countries in the world, watch this: https://youtu.be/P5HZrHotS3U).
This is why the reality TV guy, wife cheater, the crude tweeter, the political outcast is so outperforming the left that 82 percent of independents approved of President Trump’s State of the Union points.
Have earnest discussions with your children, save their future.
Peachtree City, Ga.
