First, here is good news about The Netherlands, in northern Europe. The international news website RT.com reported:
Euroskeptic party, Forum for Democracy, is set to become one of the two largest groups in the Dutch Senate, stripping the ruling coalition of its majority after winning provincial elections (recently).
Euroskeptic means that they want to leave the European Union, i.e., they are conservative. Wonderful. Now here is today’s main commentary:
For decades Democrats have been claiming that they stand for “the little guy” and “working people” and “working families” and “the poor”.
This is false. It is president Trump and conservatives who stand for all four while Democrats side with the mega-billionaire elites and the globalists. Here are several examples:
*The environmental movement is heavily subsidized by wealthy and super-wealthy Americans who choose to live in cities and who have little contact with the natural world.
The Democrat party also stands foursquare with the environmental movement which is seeking to curtail and even halt the production and use of oil, coal and natural gas which have fueled our economy for centuries.
But when oil production is reduced then gasoline and heating oil prices go up as a result of the law of supply and demand. And while the billionaire elites will not be affected if energy prices rise ‘the little guy’ gets crushed.
He already has been. In the years 2009 to 2014 the price of gasoline and heating oil soared to $4 a gallon and more. This was a direct result of Obama ‘green’ policies which restricted the supply of oil.
Obama even warned us in 2008 when he was running for president that the cost of energy would “necessarily skyrocket” (his actual words) under his policies.
These high prices devastated “the common man” and “working families” and “the poor”. But the media never said a word about it. After all Obama is a Democrat.
Then around 2013 and 2014 large-scale ‘fracking’ for oil increased the supply significantly and brought the price of gasoline and heating oil down to $2 a gallon and even less. It has been around $2.25 since then. It has recently spiked to $2.50 but that increase is probably temporary. Still, even $2.50 is better than $4 a gallon and more.
Obama and Democrats oppose ‘fracking’ while Trump favors it as do Republicans, conservatives and the oil companies. So who really stands with “the little guy”?
It is not hard to figure out. The Democrats then claim that they are ‘compassionate’ because they support handout programs to help ‘the poor’ with assistance to pay their heating oil bills.
Yet ‘fracking’ keeps prices down naturally through abundant supplies and so these handouts are not needed. ‘Fracking’ is the best assistance program of all.
*President Trump lowered the tax rate on businesses from 39% to 20% under his December 2017 tax bill. Democrats said that this was just a tax break for wealthy corporations, but this reduction has led to a boom in hiring for workers at all levels. Unemployment in America is at historic lows.
Democrats always want higher taxes and argue that lowering the tax rate on top earners and on business will reduce the amount of tax revenue going to the government.
Actually the opposite is true. When Republican president Ronald Reagan lowered the top tax rate by 60% in 1981, the resulting surge in economic activity increased revenues to the US Treasury over the next 8 years by a whopping 91%
The Reagan economic boom continued for 27 years until the economic disaster of 2008.
On the other hand, a special luxury tax was imposed on yachts in 1990 with the intention of getting more tax money out of rich people who buy yachts. But rich people stopped buying yachts because they thought that the tax was unfair and too high. This led to a sudden collapse in the yacht-building industry, throwing thousands of people out of work.
*President Trump and conservatives favor charter schools to give American students an alternative to terrible public schools. But Democrats want the public schools to have an iron grip on every student.
The public schools in America have failed tens of millions of students leading to lives of poverty and deprivation. So it is us conservatives who are on the side of “the poor” and the “little guy” who want alternatives to the public schools so that they can advance in life.
*Democrats are ‘soft on crime’. They seem to want to go easy on every criminal even though we know that lenient treatment only encourages more crime.
On the other hand Republicans and president Trump want criminals to be dealt with harshly.
Yet it is people in poor and working-class neighborhoods, where criminals generally live and hide, who are most adversely affected by Democrats’ soft-on-crime agenda. So cracking down on crime is a very good idea that helps law-abiding poor and working people live more safely.
The Gateway Pundit reports about a far-left district attorney:
Radical far left Suffolk County (Boston, Massachusetts) District Attorney Rachael Rollins released a memo this week.
The far left District Attorney announced new orders for police officers who are no longer allowed to arrest people for shoplifting, for breaking and entering, for destruction of property/vandalism, for resisting arrest, for disturbing the peace, and for drug offenses.
This is beyond shocking. This is a direct affront to law and order. Breaking and entering will no longer be treated as a crime? This, friends, is outright war on our civilized society, particularly on the poor and on working people. And wouldn’t you know it, this DA was backed by Soros…
*Government regulations emanating from the federal, state and local bureaucracy have been strangling the economy for decades, reducing job opportunities for all Americans.
For instance, regulators and environmentalists (i.e., Democrats) blocked the opening of an iron mine in rural Northern Wisconsin in 2012. This mine would have provided thousands of jobs for the people of a region that has serious economic problems. Republicans favored the project including then-Wisconsin governor Scott Walker.
Regulators and environmentalists shot down a proposed new, efficient cement production plant in Hudson, New York that would have provided hundreds of jobs in the depressed region.
Mitt Romney, who was governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007, once told an audience including Nikitas3.com that a businessman had tried for six years to get permits to expand his business in ultra-liberal Massachusetts. The businessman then went to conservative North Carolina and got the permits in 6 months.
So those jobs will run away from liberalism and toward conservatism.
*The flood of illegal immigrants over the Mexican border is depressing wages by bringing in poor people who will work for less money. These lower wages are hurting poor Americans who need jobs and income. The jobs themselves are also going to illegal immigrants. Trump wants to stop this flood of illegals. Democrats want it to continue.
*Rents across America have increased significantly because millions of illegal immigrants need apartments to live in. This pushes up rents as demand for apartments rises. And we know that rising rents hurt poor Americans and working-class Americans most who live in the neighborhoods that illegal immigrants settle in.
*President Trump and Republicans oppose the $15 minimum wage while Democrats claim that a $15 minimum is good for lower-income workers.
But millions of these workers are finding, for instance, that this high minimum wage is leading employers like McDonald’s to use computer ordering screens rather than hiring human order takers. Or robot hamburger cookers and french-fry makers. This trend toward automation is accelerating as higher and higher minimum wages kick in.
The higher minimum wage is also leading employers to not hire any new workers because it has become too expensive. Or employers are cutting benefits to other worker to pay the higher minimum.
Or businesses are simply cutting hours or closing because they cannot afford to pay such high wages. So it obviously is better to employed at $10 an hour than unemployed at $15.
Feminists Defend Pervert Biden
Within days of accusations surfacing that former vice president Joe Biden acted “inappropriately” around a Nevada woman, Democrats have rallied around Biden despite a clear, recorded pattern of this type of behavior for many years.
The Biden incident comes in the wake of the MeToo movement which was supposed to show that all men are creeps. And that may be true about liberal males since 95% of the men caught up in the sexual abuse of women in the MeToo scandal are liberals, media leftists and Democrats like Harvey Weinstein, Garrison Keillor, Matt Lauer, Al Franken, Les Moonves, Mark Halperin, Biden and many, many more.
But oh boy, the feminists who spearheaded MeToo are suddenly silent on Biden, and these accusations don’t even include Biden’s most shocking behavior with little girls as captured on video (search “creepy Joe Biden” on YouTube).
Friends, we know that Biden is a pervert; there are many photos on the internet of Biden acting out with women and worse, with little girls. In other words, there is a clear pattern.
We know that Bill Clinton was a pervert, that John F. Kennedy was, that Robert F. Kennedy was, that Martin Luther King was. Yet somehow feminists always excuse horrible behavior by Democrats. The Gateway Pundit reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stood by … Joe Biden on Monday amid accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching.
Two women have come forward with #MeToo accusations against creepy Uncle Joe and Pelosi said Monday that the accusations should “not at all” disqualify him from being president, reported The Hill.
“No. No, I do not,” Pelosi told reporters when asked if she thinks the #MeToo allegations from two women against Biden are disqualifying.
“I don’t think that this disqualifies him from being president,” she said while walking to the House chamber. “Not at all.”
If this were Donald Trump there would be unanimous media condemnation. Even when Biden is seen on video nuzzling the wife of the defense secretary, he has been excused. After all the wife herself has excused Biden because she knows the score: If she speaks out against Biden the Democrats will make her life hell.
No, instead there is almost unanimous feminist/media agreement that Biden somehow is NOT a pervert. This shows the dementia of today’s feminists.
Breitbart News reported about the feminist hens on The View TV show defending Biden in every way possible:
Monday on ABC’s “The View,” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain and Joy Behar defended former Vice President Joe Biden in the wake of former Nevada lawmaker Lucy Flores’ claim he inappropriately touched and kissed her in 2014 at a campaign rally.
Goldberg said, “Listen, in the old days we would call Joe—some folks of a certain age would say he’s overly familiar. Most politicians when they’re doing this with you, they are—Joe is a hands-on kind of guy. I’ve never heard anyone—she says she felt violated. I have to take her at her word. But it would have been nice if she turned to him and say, ‘You know what, I don’t really like this. Please don’t do this, Mr. Vice President. I’m not comfortable with this.’ Something, because he’s standing right there.”
Joy Behar said, “It’s a long way from smelling your hair to grabbing your (vagina). Let’s tell the truth. But she felt annoyed or uncomfortable, and we have to accept that. I don’t think it rises to the point we’ve been listening to like Harvey Weinstein and the rest of these people. It just doesn’t look like that. We all know Joe Biden. He’s been here. When I met him in Florida before he was vice president, he’s so friendly. He’s a close talker. He comes right up into your face, and you’re thinking I hope my breath is good. Or more important I hope he is. He talks close, he touches. That’s what he’s like. I feel it would be unfortunate if we got rid of everybody who’s an affectionate kind of person. Those are nice people too.”
Abby Huntsman said, “I always wonder when these things come out, what is the motive for this person? Is it simply to let people know, I was uncomfortable, which you could have done in private? Or is it because you want someone else to win and you want him to have doubts about announcing or the presidency? I’ve had concerns about the #MeToo movement from the beginning about getting to this place where you can’t have normal interactions with each other. This was uncomfortable, and that’s her place. Are we going to get to a place where we can’t shake hands or hug each other? I worry about that.”
Sunny Hostin said, “I’m sort of in the middle on this in the sense, I do believe with this particular situation there was a power dynamic. You’re talking about the vice president of the United States. She was running for lieutenant governor. She may not have wanted to offend him. A lot of women get put in that kind of situation where they’re offended, and they’re uncomfortable, but they may not say anything. That’s one thing. I do appreciate his response. He said ‘I may not recall these moments the same way and I may be surprised at what I hear. We have arrived in an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences and men should pay attention.’ I think that is the appropriate response. Perhaps he didn’t intend to make her uncomfortable, but she’s saying you did make me uncomfortable. He’s saying, I will listen. I don’t know if we’ll see anymore smelling of hair. and kisses.”
Goldberg said, “That pisses me off. I’m telling you … I don’t want Joe to stop doing that.”
Meghan McCain said, “I don’t either. I’m going to say one thing. There’s a certain kind of retail politician that loves people. I would put Bill Clinton in that category and my father in that category, and certainly, I would put Joe Biden in that category. He’s the only politician other my father to go into the crowd and shake everyone’s hands. That means something when you are in Iowa. When I heard this, I read her entire statement. I agree women should be heard. I worked at Fox News during the Roger Ailes time. There is a very big difference between things like that and things like this.”
She continued, “Joe Biden is a good and decent man.”
She added, “I vouch for his character and in my personal experience.”
Goldberg said, “I’m doing the same.”
Behar added, “Me too.”
Goldberg said, “For me, these things are not Democratic or Republican.”
She continued, “I want women to get to the place where they can say, ‘hey, you just made me uncomfortable.’ This idea that you have to tiptoe away from this, or you have to carry it. You do not have to carry it. If someone makes you uncomfortable, tell them. He came down to do you a favor. He came down to do you a favor. He was at your fundraiser. You had every right to say ‘Don’t do that Joe.’”
She added, “You have to stop mischaracterizing stuff…Don’t sit and wait and say ‘I’m uncomfortable’ on national television. Because it makes us suspect of your thoughts.”
Friends, if this were Donald Trump the condemnation would be universal and loud. And just wait until the videos of groping and the creepy kissing of little girls by Biden become more widely known. That will be impossible to defend. There are two incidents in which Biden puts his hand on the undeveloped breasts of little girls.
One internet commentator claims that Biden received treatment decades ago for being a pedophile. It is obvious that Biden has serious problems. Nikitas3.com predicts that he won’t run for president.
Meanwhile the lieutenant governor of Virginia has been accused of sexual assault by two women and the national media have largely dropped the story. After all Justin Fairfax is a Democrat and black.
Here is Fairfax accuser Vanessa Tyson talking about Fairfax. This is really rough:
“It– it– it– it– it was like I couldn’t– I couldn’t feel my neck. I couldn’t hold my head up. He’s using his hand on the back of my neck. And I still didn’t know what was going wrong. I thought there was something wrong with my neck… And he’s pushing down and pushing down. And I couldn’t hold my neck up. And I didn’t know what was going on. I honestly didn’t know what was going on. And then the next thing I know, like, my head is, like, literally in his crotch… And I’m choking and gagging. And, you know, I couldn’t say anything ’cause I’m choking and gagging. And so, you know, it continues for– and he’s holding my head. So I can’t lift– like, I’m trying to lift my head, but I can’t.”
In other words, he tried to force her into a sex act. Shocking. Will The View see Fairfax favorably? Who knows. They might go after Tyson, like they set out after Bill Clinton’s accusers.
