Doh! Another. Democrat. Debate.

Apparently the Democrats had another debate. It was a long “three-hour tour,” and their 4th debate will be four hours and so on.

So, whether it’s their “Medicare for All” or “Climate Change” programs they want to impose, the main point of the Democrats’ programs is their greedy and envious wealth confiscation desires. Everything they want to do includes raising taxes on the productive and the workers i.e. stealing from the people.

And that’s the main point: like Thomas Piketty‘s best-seller, “Rather Than Helping People at the Bottom, Instead Let’s Pull People Down from the Top,” these greedy politicians just want to steal from the productive. And that’s it.

Their environmentalism and health care demagoguery is just a facade covering their real lust for stealing from others, their giving themselves and their cronies power over others and their enjoying the extravagances of all the wealth they use government apparatus to steal from the people. As Larken Rose would put it, these politician parasites don’t care about you, they don’t care if you have health care, and they don’t care if you suffer from climate change.

And with these fascists’ prohibitions, regulations and mandates they love control over others and another goal besides stealing from the people is their suppressing productivity. The motivation for their obsession with and lust for interfering with the lives, inventions, innovations, and progress of others is the same as why they want to steal from the wealthy, the successful and the productive: envy. It is a brainwashed ideology and fanaticism of envy, resentment and hatred of others that directs their thoughts, feelings and all their energy.

They are not that much different from their Rethuglican opponent Donald Trump who wants to interfere with the lives and productivity of foreigners that’s supposedly in the name of “protecting America’s interests,” via his anti-immigration fascism/socialism, which itself is based on myths and fairy tales. But we can leave the immigration issue for a different discussion.

And besides the government central-planning policies of the Envycrats, they also live in a world of ignorance and denial when it comes to the gun rights issue. “Beto” O’Rourke says he wants to take away people’s guns that are shooting people in Walmarts and other areas. So he agrees with Walmart and other stores who are asking customers to not carry guns into their stores. The reason for this request is that Walmart and the other stores want to disarm law-abiding people and make them defenseless sitting ducks when the next shooting occurs.

What? They don’t want that? So they’re just ignorant and in denial? They don’t understand that gun control laws and gun-free zones only disarm people who obey the law.

Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Criminals who want to go shoot up a place don’t care if it’s illegal to go shoot up a place. They don’t care if murder, assault, rape and robbery are illegal, so obviously they won’t care if guns are illegal. They’re criminals. Criminals don’t obey the law.

Criminals will get their guns illegally, on the black market, just as the drug laws for the past 60 years have not prevented people from getting their drugs.

And regarding the gun-free zones, 98% of the mass shooters have gone to do their shooting in gun-free zones. Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Too bad “Beto” and all the other hysterical people out there do not seem to have that much of an attention span. These selfish hypocritical politicians benefit from arming themselves or having armed security guards, but they want to disarm the commoners.

Anyway, it sounds like some of the sheeple are now favoring Elizabeth Warren, never mind her shrill lecturing, her pandering to every special interest group she could think of. Go away, Liawatha. Please.

Then there was Kamala Harris — Is she on some kind of tranquilizer? Her poking fun at people on the Wizard of Oz was very unbecoming. That was one of my favorite movies. And Harris has this evil-sounding laugh. The anti-Oz remark was especially unladylike.

These horrible people all seem to be in agreement to steal more earnings away from the people and disarm them. Can you imagine having a bodyguard and walking down the street when a robber approaches you and demands your money, your bodyguard helps the robber, not you. That is what government in Washington is.

And Joe Biden? I think he has Alzheimer’s, and I don’t mean that in a derogatory or ageist kind of way like the annoying Julian Castro seemed to do at the debate. Biden has clearly lost some of his cognitive functioning, including his brain-to-mouth motor coordination when he talks. At times he has sounded just like my father (without the socialist claptrap) during his last year or two. And the latest thing I heard was that Biden will release his medical records, and the news mentioned that he takes statin drugs. (Uh-oh, says Bill Sardi and this Reuters article, on statins.)

I think the best ones at the recent debate were Marianne Williamson and Tulsi Gabbard. (Wait, they weren’t at the debate. Sorry. They were still the best ones at that debate.)

USSA Amerika in All Its Glory

It seems that everything in Amerika is politicized. With the social activists and “social justice” warriors wanting to silence and “demonetize” those who have a different point of view, and trying to impose a “social credit” score like in China, every aspect of every day life will be politicized and Amerika will be a Soviet 2.0 (if we’re not already there).

The idiots who run Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, and Micro$oft have no clue of history, so they are setting out to aid in the tyrannizing of Amerika.

And this seems to be what all or most of the Democrats running for President want to force on us. Trump is just as bad. And ignorant.

Socialists believe in the empowerment of parasites and bureaucrats and the coercion and the enslavement of others. Democrats fit that mold. (But then, so do the Republicans!)

For example, “Medicare for All,” which isn’t that much different as regular Medicare and Social Security. Workers and producers can’t opt out. Employers and workers must do what bureaucrats order them to do. There is no choice in the matter. No freedom.

And Laurence Vance once again points out that Republicans are just as much socialists as their Democrat opponents in the Republicans’ support for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, SCHIP, “Earned Income Tax Credit,” and Medicare Part D (prescription drug program). All socialist programs.

Even the Libertarian Partly has gone downhill since the Ron Paul-Harry Browne days, with their support in the last two Presidential elections for Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, the pukeworthy “social justice” warriors and interventionists from the Rethug party.

But everything in Amerika now is politics-obsessed and government-obsessed. Only government can solve problems (even though government is mainly the cause of most of the problems!), and the worst of the worst climb up the political ladder to grab that POWER! As soon as the 2016 Presidential election was over, immediately the news media robots were discussing the 2020 election! Doh!

And look at the current bunch of Democrats. Or rather, DON’T look! Yech! Take Elizabeth Warren. Please. She lies on her law school employment applications to fraudulently get work at Harvard, at the expensive of actual minorities who didn’t commit acts of fraud in their applications. Warren lied to the voters of Massachusetts during the last election, promising that if reelected she would stay the full 6-year term as Senator and wouldn’t run for President. The minute she won reelection last November she announces her run for President. We should call her “Liawatha,” no?

And is she a communist who wants the government to run all the industries? Envy, Inc. Warren also gave us the “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,” whose stated purpose is to weed out fraud. (How does a known fraudster weed out fraud?) The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a Democrat money-laundering racket. Did you know that?

And then there’s Kamala Harass, who giggled and replied, “Well said” this week to someone calling Trump “mentally retarded.” And then she tries to lie her way out of it.

Tulsi Gabbard pointed out Harris’s 1,500 marijuana arrests, and that she “blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” and that she “kept people in prison beyond their sentences” for cheap labor.

Also as a California prosecutor Harris arrested and jailed the parents of kids who missed too much school, and laughed about that, too. If I were a psychiatrist, I would love to have her in my office and find out, you know, what happened in her early childhood. I think there are probably similarities among all these parasites, shysters and psychopaths.

And, oh yes, here’s a real doozie. “Beto” O’Rourke, who puts baby poop in his wife’s food, and does “Psycho” scenes when she’s in the shower. And fantasized about murdering children. These people are sick degenerates.

“Mayor Pete”? The one who criticized Trump for getting out of the Vietnam War, but didn’t criticize the war itself? And the warmongers in Washington (which he strives to be, if elected) who sent 58,000 Americans to their deaths for no good reason? Nothing to say about that.

Speaking of the warmongering psychopaths in Washington (which all those Democrats strive to be), there was apparently a “secret meeting” planned with Donald Trump and Afghan Taliban officials to be held at Camp David, but because of a suicide car bomb attack that caused the death of an American soldier, Trump and his minions cancelled the meeting. They were to have an agreement with the Taliban but the Taliban were reluctant because they don’t recognize the “stooge government” in Kabul. (What about the “stooge government” in Washington?)

Now, the American soldier who died as a result of the bombing did so for the same reason that all the other American soldiers died in Afghanistan or Iraq (and Vietnam, etc., etc.), because they shouldn’t have been over there in the first place. They have no place being there, and the U.S. government had no good reason to start either of those two wars over there.

As the aforementioned Laurence Vance has stated, the U.S. government can eliminate the risks involved in U.S. troops being in places where they do not belong: just get the hell out of there. It’s not complicated.

But Democrats are just as much warmongers and foreign interventionists as the Republicans. They both suck.

But I don’t know whether the bureaucrats of Washington really want to end that Afghanistan war that they started for no good reason, and, given the U.S. government’s record of false flags, war crimes and shenanigans in other countries, it wouldn’t surprise me if the recent car bombing was really a CIA false flag. Now, I’m not accusing anyone, just saying it wouldn’t surprise me.

If it was a false flag, then it would be because the bureaucrats really don’t want to leave Afghanistan. Just look at all the boondoggles for the American military contractors and construction contractors, and the CIA opium fields and all the profits with the drug trade. I mean, who would want to give that up? (The criminals and gangsters of Washington, that is.)

And then there’s Secretary of Belligerence State Mike Bombpeo on all the Sunday shows, Chinese phone books and all, giving lots of sickening propaganda. When he and John Bolton speak, I just assume they are lying, like the other warmongers of the U.S. government.

Speaking of the Sunday talk shows that I hear on Bloomberg Radio, I couldn’t believe all the propaganda and lies yesterday. Chuck Toady with “Meet the Press” and CBS Fake the Nation were the worst.

If the economy is good by a year from now and Trump hasn’t started any new wars that his awful minions Bombpeo and Bolton seem to want to do, and the Democrat candidate still wins the 2020 election, it would be because of so much propaganda in the news media, probably combined with the shutting down of alternative media that the “SJW”s want to do.

Either way, Republican or Democrat, Trump or Liawatha, it’s Soviet 2.0. Perhaps the Libertarian Partly might actually consider nominating a libertarian this time. Or perhaps not voting is the best solution.

Immigration and the Anti-Capitalistic Socialists on Conservative Talk Radio

I was listening to “Pat and Stu” filling in for Glenn Beck the other day, and they seemed to be glad that the Trump administration has cracked down on “illegal immigrants” by raiding places of employment. The talk radio Beck flunkies were even sounding like liberals in their show of concern for the “below-minimum wage” work the illegal people were being made to do.

I thought I was going to toss my cookies. These conservatives are pathetic. They’ll say anything and make anything up to justify their irrational anti-free market, anti-capitalistic mentality, and their anti-foreigner tribalism and collectivism.

As Jacob Hornberger and Robert Wenzel point out, the immigrants who were raided and arrested were not the “rapists and murderers” that Donald Trump was complaining about throughout the campaign in 2016. These people were arrested at their jobs, in places of employment, not the welfare office to get on the dole. They aren’t out on the streets selling drugs or engaged in sex trafficking like the now late Jeffrey Epstein allegedly. They are working and honestly providing for themselves and their families.

These immigrants are not criminals. But the people who are criminals are those government goons who are harassing them, violently seizing and detaining them and throwing them in a cage, just because the workers didn’t get the permission of the government to work where they wanted to work and attempting to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Socialism includes having to get government authorization to do what you want to do or go to where you want to go. So, like Rush Limbaugh and Howie Carr and the rest of the ignorant ditto-heads on the radio, “Pat and Stu” on the Beck show certainly qualify as socialists.

In contrast, a true capitalist believes in the free market, in which people sell their labor, goods or services to others and it’s between these traders as long as they are peaceful. They don’t get a government bureaucrat’s authorization or permission, like in the old Soviet Union, Cuba or New York City.

Neanderthal Flag Worshiper Beats Up Little Kid

As usual, Jacob Hornberger gets to the heart of the matter in his post on the 39-year-old “patriotic” American person who slammed a 13-year-old boy to the ground giving him a concussion and skull fracture, because the kid refused to take off his hat when the National Anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” was being played at a rodeo event in Montana.

Hornberger notes how the “patriotic” Americans (including Donald Trump, I would add) say they are against socialism yet support all the un-American socialist programs including “Social Security, Medicare, welfare, public housing, foreign aid, public schooling, the Federal Reserve, immigration controls” and so on.

I think that’s the case with most Americans, conservative and liberal, Republican and Democrat, socialist and even libertarian. Most people support those policies.

Unfortunately, many Americans support punishing someone “disrespecting” a flag or a song with brutal violence.

According to a witness at the rodeo event, the guy said the kid “was disrespecting the national anthem so he had every right to do that.” And now it turns out that the barbaric savage is blaming Trump and his rhetoric! (I am not. Making. This. Up.) According to the Washington Times, Curt “Brockway is a U.S. Army veteran who believes he was acting on an order by the commander in chief.”

So according to CBS News, Brockway was charged with assault on a minor, and “prosecutors recommended his bail be set at $100,000, but a judge ruled that he can be released on his own recognizance.”

What? Previously, according to the article, Brockway was convicted of “assault with a weapon,” after threatening to kill a family in their parked car, and sentenced to 10 years, and it was a suspended sentence.

So, the “patriotic” American had a prior record of violence or threatening violence, and got away with it. I guess this current statist judge probably agrees with Brockway’s version of “patriotism.” As long as our poor little precious flag isn’t “disrespected.” God forbid.

And how is this incident different from leftists like the useful idiots of Antifa beating up some guy because he’s wearing a “MAGA” hat?

In his article, Hornberger explains the socialist history behind the Amerikan national anthem and the “Pledge of Allegiance” (a.k.a. Pledge of Obedience). The neanderthal coward who assaulted the little kid demands obedience to a militaristic song and a flag.

There are millions and millions of Americans who literally worship a flag as a sacred religious object or image. As Wendy McElroy wrote in her article on State heretics and State infidels, “Statolatry is more than patriotism or love of country. It is a merging of those sentiments with idolatry to produce a kind of hyper-patriotism that can be called chauvinism or jingoism…This, then, is the religion of the modern American state…Anyone who rejects the worship of states altogether is an infidel.”

I guess that little kid at the rodeo “disrespected” the sacred flag of State worship and was an alleged infidel. And a neanderthal didn’t like that.

But just a final item here: Many of these same “patriotic” Amerikans who worship a flag (and the gubmint in Washington for which it stands) also say they believe in self-defense, the right to keep and bear arms, and the 2nd Amendment. Do they support the right of that 13-year-old to keep and bear arms (which kids did back in the old days of common sense), and do they support the kid’s right to use it in self-defense, such as when being attacked by a brainwashed neanderthal brute?

Democrats Debate: Who Is Most Control Freak?

The Democrats running for President had more debates this week i.e. it was a kook fest, and I didn’t watch them because I stopped watching television in the mid-1990s. But I have heard many, many excerpts all week on the radio talk shows and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

I don’t know where to start, so I’ll just start with “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg. Well, so far the name “Pete” has not been good for Presidential aspirations (see Pete Wilson and Pete du Pont for instance). Let’s hope the trend continues here.

Mayor Pete tried to use a Bible verse as well as his economic ignorance to shame opponents of the minimum wage to accept his promise to create more unemployment by increasing the minimum wage.

He also made it a racial issue. But when the minimum wage goes up, that causes employers to have to cut those entry-level, low-skilled jobs because the employers can’t afford to pay those workers a wage that’s higher than what their jobs are worth. That is why we get higher unemployment, and entire businesses closing down, when minimum wage goes up by law.

The people most affected by this government-imposed mandatory minimum wage are the teenagers and young adults who are trying to get their very first work experience, trying to get their foot in the door. And it especially affects minorities in the cities.

So Buttigieg and the other interventionists are taking opportunities away from those young people. And teenagers (and many young adults as well) don’t need a “living wage,” by the way, because they are being supported by their parents. But they do need work experience, and if they don’t have it by age 20 or 22, they shouldn’t complain about not being able to find a higher-paying job after high school or college.

I think that most of these lying, dishonest politicians actually know these facts, but they pretend otherwise just for the sake of getting people to vote for them.

And Buttigieg is the one who criticized Donald Trump for getting out of the Vietnam War, but Buttigieg didn’t criticize the Vietnam War itself! Buttigieg criticized Trump for NOT going to some foreign country to kill innocent civilians for no good reason! Meanwhile, I think that each and every young person who got out of going to Vietnam or who went to Canada to avoid it should be PRAISED! They are heroes for not going over there and killing innocent people!

But Mayor Pete is a warmonger and doesn’t see it that way. Hmm, I wonder how many innocent civilians he killed in Afghanistan, a country that HE invaded along with the rest of the U.S. military, and for no good reason. Let’s hope the answer is zero. (Unlike the young Americans who were forced to invade and bomb and murder in Vietnam involuntarily because of the draft, the modern U.S. invaders and bombers and murderers in foreign countries have been doing so voluntarily.)

Anyway, I liked hearing Tulsi Gabbard pointing out that as a prosecutor and California attorney general Kamala Harass oversaw 1,500 marijuana arrests, and that she “blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” and that she “kept people in prison beyond their sentences to keep them as cheap labor for the state of California.”

And, I would add, Harris’s fascist anti-“truancy” law in which she arrested and jailed the parents of kids who missed too much school, i.e. were absent too many times from their mandatory government-indoctrination prison camps. (Just like the Germans, Kamala. Yay!) And just as Gabbard says that Harass laughed about jailing marijuana users, she also laughed about jailing the “truant” kids’ parents.

But there seem to be many libertarians who like Tulsi Gabbard for her looks anti-war positions, but she shows a lot of ignorance in that area as well. For instance, she says that the U.S. military shouldn’t be over in those foreign places for “regime change,” but to fight and “defeat al-Qaeda.” And she believes that Islamic fanaticism is to blame for the terrorism. So, she’s just as brainwashed as many people are since 9/11. She doesn’t seem to get that what causes the terrorism in the first place has been the U.S. government’s invading and bombing those countries over there, since well before 9/11 (see this and this).

Being extreme authoritarians, the Democrats seem to want to impose “Medicare for All” on the rest of us. They say they want to fix the medical care system, despite the fact that all their previous interventions have failed. For example, ObamaCare has been in effect for years now, so why is there still a problem?

The medical care system in America was the best in the world before Medicare and Medicaid came in and distorted the markets in medical care. The free market provided people with not only many choices, but because of the lack of government intrusions into medical care, doctors were financially able to provide free care for people who couldn’t afford it or who didn’t have insurance. Dr. Ron Paul was one of those who treated lower income people including minorities, for free. There were MANY doctors like that, way back when. Now, not so much.

But the truth is, these politicians don’t care about people being able to get medical care, as they propose all these terrible things just to get people to vote for them, and that’s it! As FDR said about Social Security or LBJ said about Medicare (or both), these kinds of government hand-outs are to ensure that more people will vote for THEM, for Democrats for all of eternity. That’s all that matters to these people, power and control. Expanded government powers gives them plenty of control.

More and more these power-mad politicians want to take choices away from the people, they want to make private insurance illegal (and soon private-practice medical care) and impose a one-size-fits-all scheme onto everyone, whether they like it or not.

The reason these government worshipers want so much control and want to force you into a “Medicare for All” scheme is that they want access to all your private medical information. They want “cradle to grave” control in medical care, and “cradle to career” tracking and surveillance in the young people as well.

The control freaks, including every hippie freak weirdo at these Democrat debates, want to intrude into every aspect of everybody’s private life, to “prevent discrimination,” to make sure everybody works toward a better social credit score like in China, to make sure that there is “no inequality” in society. Why? Because they are brainwashed social engineering fanatics. And that is why “Medicare for All” with these extremely crazy people.

And what the political elites really want is a two-tier medical system, in which the political class, their henchmen and all their little hangers-on will get the first-class care when they want it, and the rest of us get whatever the apparatchiks think we deserve, just like in the old Soviet Union.

It is just like the two-tiered judicial system we have now. Powerless people who are accused of something by the government get thrown in jail for life, while the elites, the political class get away with whatever they want to get away with. (See Jeffrey Epstein, Comey, Brennan, Lois Lerner, et al.)

And besides Mayor Pete, Kamala Harass, and Tulsi Gabtard, there are the scummy or just plain crazy crackpots, including “Beto” O’Rourke, Jay Inslee, Cory Shnooker, Gillibrand and Biden. But Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are outright communists. They seem to just want the government to have complete control over all industries, labor and employment, and property just like in the old Soviet Union. I’ve never seen a bunch of crazies, ignoramuses and psychopaths as we have in this bunch. They are just as bad as the Rethuglicans.

Speaking of the Rethugs and Trump, their intrusion policies of trade tariffs, debt and deficit spending cause, among other things, higher prices for consumers and thus they lower the standard of living for the society. Trump’s tax cuts, which expire in a few years for individuals, are only helpful in the short term and don’t mean very much in the long term, because Trump and the Republicans refuse to cut spending. They are irresponsible criminals, just like the thieving Democrats.

And Trump’s immigration and drug war police state are further eroding freedom and prosperity in America. Why don’t Democrats say anything about dismantling the Amerikan police state? The NSA, CIA, FBI, DHS, TSA, and more. They all need to go. But Democrats love the police state, as that is what their SovietCare program is all about.

Sadly, we never, ever hear anything from Democrats (or Rethugs) about freedom. Just more and more government control, and more and more police state. (Oh, and “Racist, Racist, Racist!” etc.) They all suck. Don’t vote for any of them, or for Trump. In fact, don’t vote at all!

Donald Trump Hates Socialism – Except That … He LOVES Socialism

Jacob Hornberger responds to Donald Trump‘s recent tweets of “America, love it or leave it!” and that “We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country…” and Hornberger explains that America turned socialist long ago and that Trump and the conservatives have supported socialist policies for decades and decades.

Some examples that Hornberger gives include Social Security, Medicare, government “public” schools, immigration controls and the national security state. They all involve income confiscation and redistribution, and central planning.

And as I wrote in my July, 2016 article, Libertarians for Socialism, Trump wrote on his campaign website (no longer available, but Wayback Machine snapshot here), government must “make sure that no one slips through the cracks simply because they cannot afford insurance. We must review basic options for Medicaid and work with states to ensure that those who want healthcare coverage can have it.”

And I wrote:

As Trump made clear in his interview last September with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, Trump is “going to take care of everybody,” and that “the government’s gonna pay for it.” And he promised to fund all that by raising taxes on the wealthy. In his February appearance on a CNN Town Hall with Anderson Cooper, Trump stated that while he wants to repeal ObamaCare he nevertheless likes the mandate because he doesn’t want “people dying on the streets.” In reference to his Medicaid expansion proposal (which he referred to as “Medicare” in the CNN interview), Trump stated, “That’s not single payer, by the way. That’s called heart. We gotta take care of people that can’t take care of themselves.”

And by “we” he doesn’t mean private charities or businesses, which is the free-market way, but government, which is the failed socialist way.

Here is The Donald in the interview with Scott Pelley, in which Trump explains his support for single-payer, government-run health care:

I also wrote in that article, which appeared on EconomicPolicyJournal.com:

And socialist programs in the U.S. such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are collapsing. But Donald Trump won’t touch Social Security, and, according to his official campaign website, won’t cut anyone’s entitlements.

Obviously that last link which was on Trump’s own campaign website, is no longer available. (Why is there a picture of Hillary on that “Oops!” page?) Here is that page on the Wayback Machine.

Trump won’t touch entitlements because he believes in socialist redistribution of wealth schemes, which is what all those entitlement programs are. He is a socialist.

And this video is a compilation of different Trump interviews and talks in which Trump contradicts Trump and flip-flops like a Romney impersonator.

Anyway, Trump should not say that America will never be a socialist country, when it is a socialist country in many respects. And he can’t say that he is not a socialist when in actuality all his policies are socialist policies. He is one of the most anti-free market, anti-capitalism, anti-private property authoritarian Presidents we have ever had.

So Trump is clueless about what America is all about, which is voluntary exchange and free markets and free trade, not compulsory exchange and government-controlled trade, and America is about private property rights and the voluntary contract. Trump is the one who doesn’t like America and wants to impose governmental intrusions into the economy and into the lives of the people.

Yes, his tax cuts helped to get businesses to raise their wages and salaries and give employees bonuses, and make more investments. But Trump still loves the income tax and doesn’t want to abolish it, despite its being a fundamental aspect of the socialist society that he envisions. The income tax is government theft of private property and wealth because it is based on an involuntary exchange, based on coercion and threats. No different from a robber demanding your money or else.

In the end, Trump is no different from the other socialists, from Elizabeth Warren to George W. Bush. Oh, well.
