Bubble Brain


I've often thought that nobody should be allowed to vote unless they can name the three branches of out government (legislative, executive and judicial), Now, newly-elected New York City Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has exhibited stunning ignorance of even this simple fact. She thinks this answer is the "the president, the Senate and the House" (her new venue). If you don't believe me, please watch: Daily Wire News Video.

Now this 29-year-old new Representative has gone from being a Bronx bartender to a $175,000 per year gig helping to guide our ship of state. She has a cum laude degree in economics from Boston University and has promised her equally-clueless voters free healthcare, free housing, free college and just about free everything else ... without any clear idea of how to pay for this largess. (She also wants to eliminate the Columbus Day holiday.)

She clearly is a babbling bubbling brain ... naive as to what she is getting into. Unfortunately, she is not by herself in that reform school under the dome in Washington, DC.

Afterthought: However, one bright spot -- she is against the NYC tax giveaway to Amazon!

Parasite


Socialism is a parasite on capitalism. The former would not exist without the latter. Left unchecked, this mooch eventually kills its host. -- Anon.

In a Nutshell


How screwed up must America have been in 2016 that we elected a man like Donald Trump to get us out of the hole we were in? And it was the right decision because he is fixing things despite ferocious resistance from many of those folks who put is in our quandary in the first place. Our country is living through this violent clash of two distinct ideologies ... best described as globalism and nationalism ... analogous to socialism versus capitalism. In the past, Trump's flag, nationalism (and capitalism), has always carried us all to a better life. Will it once again?

(Ever notice that, like the socialist ruling class, the globalist elites are authoritarian plutocrats?)

Generalizations


Generalizations are sweeping statements of what everyone always thinks about all the many facets of everything ... everywhere.

Still Winning?


Is Trump making progress on his MAGA agenda? Let's take a look:


- Orange County, California is now controlled by Democrats

- China's Xi is not yet bending on our trade war

- North Korea's Kim has stopped moving forward on denuclearizing

- The CIA has gone rogue leaking the Crown Prince connection to Khashoggi murder

- Our economy is apparently slowing to below 3%

- Mueller is a coiled snake ready to strike

- CNN's Jim Acosta is back in the White House

- The Central American caravan is still coming

- Out stock market is in a swoon

- Great Britain's is being sucked back into the EU

- The House has ordered boxes of blank subpoenas for next year

- Few NATO members have met their obliged contributions


So what is Trump going to be thankful for on Thursday?

USMCA


No wonder Orange County is now blue.

Quotable Quote


Those who vote decide nothing. Theos who count the votes decide everything. -- Joseph Stalin


Sunspots


Climate scientists are sounding a warning. But this time it has to do with global cooling. It seems that lack of sunspots, like now, are a reliable predictor of lower global temperatures ... see: Daily Mail Article.

What? I thought that CO2 was the only driver of climate change? (Now it is sunspots ... and there are many others.)

Now, in order to save us from freezing, Al Gore, Barack Obama Jerry Brown and 97% of climate scientists are now pushing for more fossil fuel usage to increase CO2 to counteract our dimming sun. This we will have to do anyway to  burn to help us warm our homes.

Bonanza!


This blog and Google just hit the mother load ... had we been carrying ads here. The generous bot somewhere just gave us over 2,000 hits. Compare and overlay the above activity chart with the one offered in the explanation of this mystery in Google Grift.

Funny thing though ... these bot hits don't seem to go to any particular posts, locations., etc. You'd think these measures should reconcile?

Obvious Truth #31


"Nationalism is to capitalism as globalism is to socialism" -- Anon.

Like the 'invisible hand' of capitalism produces overall individual benefit ... so does the economic self-interest of nationalism produce an equivalent expansion in the wealth of nations.
