Anti-Trumpers, as a group, have received more than their fair share of attention. They fulfill the wildest dreams of many on the left and in the media, but I repeat myself, because they love nothing more than disloyal Republicans.

It brings them even more joy if they blame Trump for specific atrocities. A home run for them is when RINOs place blame on Trump for the “deadly” actions on January 6. Such accusations are uninformed, politically bigoted, or both. Blaming acts of violence on the politicians the criminals support is almost never reasonable and represents lazy and misleading thinking.

[Winston] Smith works at the Ministry of Truth, and his job is to rewrite the reports in newspapers of the past to conform with the present reality. Smith lives in a constant state of uncertainty; he is not sure the year is in fact 1984.

THE TAKE

What’s so bad about socialism that leftists have to qualify it with “democratic?” Isn’t socialism supposed to be inherently… democratic?

NEWSFEED TUESDAY: Democrats Headed for a British Labour Party Disaster

Some of the most astute analysis of Labour’s thumping loss has come from Lisa Nandy, member of Parliament for Wigan, who resigned from Corbyn’s shadow Cabinet in 2016 over his management and her party’s Brexit position. Nandy is an outside shot for the leadership, but she has impressed with her straight talk on where the party went off the rails. Speaking about feedback from voters, she says:

“There was just a general sense that at the top of the Labour Party we don’t speak for people like them anymore, a sense we don’t have skin in the game, that we’re not rooted in those communities, and we’re just not like them, and we don’t come very often to just ask people what they think and to listen to what they’ve got to say.” [bold added]

NEWSFEED MONDAY: Bernie’s Never-Ending Fidel Castro Crush

“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders told Anderson Cooper.

Fox News, February 24, 2020

Castro’s End: With Fidel Castro’s death at 90, the encomiums are rolling in, especially from what remains of the American Big Media. But in fact, Castro during his 58 years of dictatorship was an evil man, a communist who tortured, killed and imprisoned with no remorse, a tyrant who tore a once-beautiful country apart and sent its finest citizens into exile.

NEWSFEED WEDNESDAY: Democrats’ Choice: A Plutocrat or Avowed Socialist for President

“What Mini Mike is doing is nothing less than a large scale illegal campaign contribution. He is ‘spreading’ money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?” Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The Hill, February 18, 2020

Stop Bloomberg. He’s showing billionaires how to buy the presidency and it’s dangerous.

NEWSFEED TUESDAY: Will Bernie be the Democrats’ Nominee?

“Suddenly, we have the Democratic establishment very nervous about this campaign. We got Wall Street nervous,” Sanders told a crowd of roughly 1,100 Sunday night in Sioux City. “They’re starting to think, could this really happen?”

“We are their worst nightmare,” he added.

NBC News, January 27, 2020

THE TAKE

In Bernie Sanders’ race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, he has one big thing going for him. He commands an ardent following on the left. In a weak and fractured Democratic field, Bernie’s minions may just get him to the top. Let’s assume, too, that Liz Warren folds tent. Sopping up her leftist support only strengthens Bernie. Or better positions him to claim the nomination come the summer.

NEWSFEED THURSDAY: Pelosi’s Televised Impeachment Statement from Hell

Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce

To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:

Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n

John Milton, Paradise Lost

THE TAKE

There’s a teaching moment in cynicism available for your kids. It can be seen on ABC News via YouTube. Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t just play a cynic, she is one. So thoroughly a cynic that Pelosi’s thick makeup barely hid the corrosion underneath. The speaker accused President Trump of committing treason – well, practically. That was once a hanging offense.

Why Don’t Democratic Candidates Seem to Like America Much?

It’s astonishing how politically bifurcated we have become. Many people who’ve spent years supporting politicians who are seriously flawed – liars, crooks, hypocrites –have adopted faux outrage over everything done by President Trump. Some Democratic leaders announced before Trump was even inaugurated that they wanted to impeach hm. Their entire agenda, for more than three years, has been driven by a single goal: to get rid of Trump. They put politics ahead of the national good, consistently and reliably. (There are days that I wish Republicans in Congress were as disciplined and committed as the Democrats.)

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes,” he said. “Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted. Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted; we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness.”

Chesa Boudin, new San Francisco District Attorney, via Fox News, November 11, 2019

QUICK TAKE

Chesa Boudin is the new radical leftist district attorney of San Francisco. Boudin, whose parents are convicted members of the radical and violent Weather Underground, is the latest practical expression of the ongoing social breakdown in a once magnificent city. The San Francisco Police Officers Association and the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association describe Boudin as a “dangerous choice” and “communist radical of sorts.”

The X-Files once had a tagline for describing administrative state nefariousness: Deceive, Inveigle, Obfuscate. Clearly, that is the mantra for the parts of the intelligence community that are still beholden to Obama’s bewitching ideological spell (as well as the Clinton family’s implied threats against any who dare to oppose their unjust claim to power).
