Borking failed, Dems try Anita Hill II

Democrats have failed again to stop Kavanaugh.  This time, it was pretty spectacular.  Diane Feinstein came out with a letter yesterday that apparently she had been hiding since summer.  The letter, written anonymously by someone who allegedly begged not to have her identity revealed (i.e. fakenews) supposedly accused Kavanaugh of some sort of sexual crime in high school.  Kavanaugh attended Georgetown Prep, which is an all boys high school.

When Feinstein had no luck getting the phony letter introduced to the judiciary committee as evidence, she went the Bruce Ohr/Peter Strzok route and forwarded it to the FBI to be investigated.  Of course, no investigation is planned.  Feinstein has earned her own clown nose in the Kavanaugh hearings, along with Corey “Spartacus” Booker, and Kamala Harris with her “have you ever talked to anyone about anything” line of questioning.  And here I was hoping Feinstein was trying to be the reasonable and sane voice of the left in the Judiciary Committee.

Socialists boycotting Jews?  Apparently there is nothing new under the sun.  Florida Socialist and Democrat candidate for governor Andrew Gillum has aligned himself with anti-Semitic groups who have called for boycotting Israel.  Gillum has happily accepted endorsements from racist groups like Dream Defenders who are part of the BDS movement to harm Jewish people economically through boycotts.  This isn’t the first time this approach has been tried in history.

Despite tax cuts, tax revenues continue to increase at record rates.  The government has collected over $1.5 trillion through August.  This beat out the previous record set last year.  While the deficit continues to run high and Congress continues to avoid spending cuts, it shows that tax cuts do increase revenues when it results in economic recovery.  This has been proven now several times.  If Congress could get their act together and cut spending (rather than double it along with taxes), we could have a balanced budget some day.

Fake News: Democrats care about the deficit

In 2006 the deficit was about $248 billion.  Democrats called it unpatriotic.  They said tax cuts had killed the economy and skyrocketed the deficit.  They said America was going to go bankrupt.  Conservatives stayed home, Democrats ran a group of so-called “blue dog” candidates who said they cared about the deficit.

Those blue dogs are gone now.  In 2007 when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid came into power and Democrats took over the House and Senate, the deficit had dropped to $160 billion.  Then came the regulation and the spending.  By 2008 when Obama was elected the deficit was up to half a trillion and in Obama’s first year as President the deficit was $1.4 trillion.  Democrats lost Congress in 2010 and as Republicans gained more control the deficit slowly dropped.  In 2013, it was below $1 trillion again.

Democrats don’t care about the deficit.  If they did, they would talk about cutting spending.  Tax hikes have a negative effect on the economy, and a poorly producing economy means less tax revenue.  But Democrats want tax hikes because it allows them to spend more and accomplish their goal of redistributing wealth from GDP producers to their voters.  So if they can use a high deficit to say we need to raise taxes, they will.

How do we know they don’t actually care about the deficit?  Because Democrats view every dollar cut from anything but the military as draconian austerity measures that throw Grandma off a cliff.  They even include that in their advertising.  Democrats, in addition to opposing any non-military spending cuts, have proposed spending that would double our entire US budget.  They want to spend $3.2 trillion a year on universal healthcare and another trillion a year on guaranteed tuition and jobs.  Even if they cut the entire $600 billion military budget and took every penny of the $2 trillion held by America’s billionaires, they would still need to tax every day Americans an additional $2 trillion a year.  Compare that to Trump’s tax cuts that cost $200 billion a year.

The Democrat budget wish list would cost Americans 20 times Trump’s tax cuts.  And there simply aren’t enough dollars in existence in America to pay for it.  Don’t tell me the Democrats care about deficits.

Election contrast

Republicans are set to release a second round of tax cut proposals heading into the November elections.  Actually, it’s not so much a second round as it is taking the individual tax cuts and making them permanent.  Republicans estimate it would add another 1.5 million jobs to an already pumping job market.  That would cause wages to continue their rapid growth as well as employers have to offer more pay and benefits to keep good help.  Passage isn’t guaranteed as deficit questions remain.

GOP to propose making tax cuts permanent

Meanwhile, the party of tax and spend is at it again.  Democrats have promised to repeal the Trump tax cuts and double national spending to achieve their goals of Medicare for all, free tuition, and guaranteed employment.  They have hinted at massive new taxes as well to try to cut into their proposed $4 trillion annual deficit.  They would in fact need to double taxes on every person and business to avoid the country going bankrupt by the end of Trump’s second term.

But there’s plenty of opportunity for Democrats to tax things.  In fact, they can hide a lot of taxes behind what they believe are good causes.  California is getting ready to break their promise with the beverage industry by raising billions of dollars in new soda taxes.  The ballot measure is expected to show up in 2020.  Soda taxes, gasoline taxes, cigarette taxes, marijuana taxes, the Democrats have a lot of options when it comes to taxing sin.  But they also want to tax the good stuff.  Ministry giving and clergy housing is certainly a target of pro-tax liberals as well.  They supported tariffs, until Trump did it.

Democrats look for things to tax, target soda in California

Former President Obama said in his speech last week that Republicans are having a hard time “calling Nazis bad”.  We don’t.  Nazis, along with mass murdering minority populations, supported things like universal healthcare, guaranteed employment, regulations on businesses to prevent greed and profits, and confiscation and redistribution of wealth.  They also liked to divide people based on race and use those divisions to control the masses.  Nazis were Socialists.  So Conservatives and Libertarians find it easy to say Nazis are bad.

What I want to know is how hard is it for Obama to say Socialists are bad?  Communism, which is another form of Socialism, has resulted in 100 million dead over the last century.  Put that up against Hitler’s murder of 6 million Jews.  Socialism, in the form of Communism, killed at the same rate as Hitler.  But the Left struggles to say Socialism is bad.  They, like today’s Neo-Nazis, simply maintain that it hasn’t worked because it hasn’t been tried right.  In fact, today’s Neo-Nazis are out there rallying and screaming and acting generally like fools, but with no masks and no violence.  Antifa Anarcho-Communists meanwhile are donning masks, attacking cops, and beating anyone who comes near them who might have an opposing viewpoint.

Nazis are bad.  Communists are bad.  Socialists are bad.  It’s easy to say.  How about you, Mr. Obama?  Can you say it?

Communists are bad, they killed more than 10 times as many as Hitler’s Nazis.

NYT Op-Ed Source Revealed!

Despite our aversion to anonymous sources, sometimes you just need to get a job done.  That is the position we found ourselves in when we reached out to our anonymous source at the New York Times and they revealed that he, yes he, is a member of the Deep State and is leading the resistance movement from within the administration.  So when we saw some of the key markers in the writing and the substance of what was said, we had a pretty good idea.  Our unnamed source confirmed it.  Fearful of losing her job with the New York Times, she asked that we don’t reveal her name and we agreed.

When you think about it, the Op-Ed writer identity makes sense.  He writes that they have worked to curb Trump’s agenda.  But Trump’s agenda marches on with tax cuts, portions of the border wall already under construction, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, tariffs, wins with North Korea, and a tougher stance with allies who haven’t paid their fair share.  Obamacare has been dismantled without the mandate, and pages of crippling regulations have been tossed in the trash.  Trump has successfully placed 24 judges, including one to the Supreme Court and one pending.  There is only one area where his agenda has been thwarted, and that aroused our now confirmed suspicion.

The anonymous Op-Ed came from the office of Rod Rosenstein.  Whether he wrote it himself or a staffer claimed his name is unclear.

Trump has failed to “lock her up”, referring to Hillary Clinton and her illegal email server and destruction of evidence.  Trump has not fired Rosenstein, Sessions, Ohr, Mueller, or several others potentially involved in the “Deep State” movement to protect Clinton.  The agents who have been fired have been as a result of internal DOJ investigations with overwhelming evidence of bias.  Rosenstein in fact attempted at one point to create an Obstruction of Justice charge against Trump by recommending he fire Comey and then refusing to clear the record when people speculated that Comey was fired to stop the Russian investigation.

Rosenstein also set up the special counsel investigation with Mueller and has prevented Mueller from being fired.  Meanwhile, he has not set up a second special counsel investigation to look into how the Clinton email investigation was handled.  Many observers, including Trump, have been tearing their hair out trying to figure out why the Clinton email investigation continues to go under the radar.  It is clear now that Rosenstein considers this part of his resistance duties, to steer Trump away from what he believes are Trump’s worst inclinations.

Rosenstein himself at one point faced impeachment proceedings from Congress for failing to produce evidence, refusing to remove unnecessary redaction from reports, and refusing to set up a second special counsel to look into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

Chuck Schumer himself said that intel officials have a way to “strike back” if someone speaks badly about them.  Rod Rosenstein wrote the New York Times Op-Ed because he believes he has a duty to stop Trump.  That idea has been articulated throughout the FBI higher ups in texts on record, and through DOJ employee Bruce Ohr who continued to feed fake dirt on Trump to the FBI from Christopher Steele even after the FBI fired Steele.  Rosenstein also knows his time is running out.  As soon as the Russia investigation is over, which should be very soon, or right after the election Rosenstein and Sessions will be looking for jobs.  For Rosenstein it was now or never.  He knew he would eventually be discovered, but he is the most expendable.

Our report likely won’t be picked up.  That’s Ok.  Unbiased observers have already seen this move to invoke the 25th amendment by the Deep State and take it for what it is.  It is the Birther Movement part II.  No one who matters takes it seriously.  The New York Times doesn’t have the credibility it used to.  The story, like Russian meddling, won’t affect a single vote.  But the source will be discovered by the media in time and face the consequences that come with trying to stage an internal coup against the President of the United States.  Until then, President Trump will continue to implement the portions of his agenda that don’t run through Rod Rosenstein’s office.
