Let’s be straight, if not for a certain dementia setting in deep within the Democratic Party, Republican chances for a successful 2020 election would not be looking great.

But hallelujah (maybe) we do have the Democratic Party racing at warp speed lurch to the jaw-droppingly radical left. When it comes to the competing nonsense of intersectional politics, grievance structures, getting rid of air travel, special interest slices and a festival of pandering, the scene for the next 16 months will be one gigantic display of neon insanity.

In other words, awesome.

Get the popcorn, pop up the recliner footrest and watch how a party led by a 29-year-old bartender seeks to remake the most successful economy in world history — all while devouring its own members in a delicious internecine display.

(Unless of course, they actually win the House, Senate and Presidency, in which case civilization is doomed.)

But let’s focus on the pure entertainment value of the next year and a half — in case it’s all that is left — and start with the most recent unprecedented wackiness: eliminating planes and cow farts in 10 years.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the notorious AOC, the bubbly, pretty, likable young ignorant whackadoodle now holding sway in the Democratic Party, thanks to a wildly irresponsible media, has proposed the Green New Deal, which is a sumptuous combination of an 8th grade Marxist class that just watched Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

Let’s just tap the high points: In order to deal with the threat of climate change that will end the world in 12 years (AOC’s words) the United States must lead the salvation of humanity by giving everybody free healthcare, free college, affordable/free housing, healthy food, well-paying jobs, and economic security for those unable or unwilling to work.

To accomplish this, Green New Deal says the United States need to eliminate all fossil fuels, including natural gas, in 10 years. Eliminate all nuclear plants in 10 years (yes, they are the only efficient clean energy we have, but nothing in this plan is remotely sane, so don’t draw the line there.) Eliminate all cars that run on gasoline in 10 years. Eliminate all planes and replace travel with high-speed rail. (No word from the Hawaii delegation on this point.) And naturally, we will need to upgrade or replace every building in America. Every. Building.

This is an exquisitely laughable proposal. The only challenge serious people have had in critiquing it is running out of adjectives to describe its utter madness.

The spin cover run by the media on this plan is quite amazing — honestly, almost impressive. It’s obviously indefensible by even the most partisan media (which is pretty much all of the media.) So here’s the media operatives’ spin: Republicans are hyper-focused on the details, but the goal of the plan, you see, is to get the conversation started. Republicans are missing the point. We need to have a conversation about this peril and this starts it.

First, have we not been talking about climate change? Seems to me I recall a convo or two on this point. Second, not sure we need to have a conversation on getting rid of planes and cow farts. But that could be just me.

Support truthful commentary

The next example of the unprecedented absurdities facing Democrats is the self-decapitation of the Democratic leadership in Virginia.Unbeknownst to many Americans, apparently dressing in blackface was a thing in Virginia in the 1980s.

Photos of Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam from his college yearbook show him in blackface (or worse, possibly a KKK outfit replete with pointed hood.) If he falls, second in line is Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who as soon as Northam’s apparent fate became nationally known has been beset by accusations of sexual assault by two women, which seem more credible than the one who accused now Justice Brett Kavanaugh. If Fairfax also falls, next in line is Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring. And like clockwork, he confessed that he, too, dressed in blackface several years ago. Fourth in line? The conservative Republican Speaker of the Virginia House.

We know how this ends. If Democrats were held to the standards they have created for Republicans and others, all three would be gone by now. As of this writing, all three remain in office and apparently are planning to stay there. So much for blackface and #metoo when it comes to Democratic politicians. So much for #believeallwomen if you are talking about Democratic politicians in office.

Republicans should be like kids in a candy store for the 2020 races, pushing every Democrat on whether they support eliminating planes or the death of the planet; and whether they #believeallwoman and compare their answer against their statements during the Kavanaugh hearing. This is a rich vein to mine. (Not by the media, of course. They’ll ignore it. But by Republican opponents.)

By way of comparison, photos of the Republican Florida Secretary of State surfaced recently of him in blackface at a Halloween Party several years ago. He resigned in hours. It’s not clear any Democrats will resign, which makes sense. I mean to put a fine point on it, they were the Party of slavery, of Jim Crow laws, of Bull Connor, of herding black Americans into tenements and locking them into welfare, and which still use race unabashedly to further their own political ends on a pretty much nonstop basis. It’s in the DNA of the Democratic Party.

Speaking of DNA in their veins, the Democratic Party now openly supports infanticide. I’ve avoided this term for decades during the abortion debate, although I do think that given the humanity of the resident in womb, it is just that. But the aforementioned Gov. Northam said a baby meant for abortion that is born alive and living outside the womb can still be killed by the “choice” of the mother. Sorry all, that’s infanticide.

This came days after the New York legislature erupted in applause after passing a bill allowing for abortion up to the literal moment of birth at 40 weeks. Further, the bill stated that a pregnant woman who is assaulted and that assault kills the baby — even if she is full term and on her way to the delivery room — authorities are banned from charging the attacker with murder. Only assault on the mother. The baby is simply non-existent to the Democratic Party. Standing applause.

More unprecedented insanity: AOC proposed a 70 percent tax rate before she unveiled her junior high plan to remake American civilization. But one of her radical compadres in Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar, saw her 70 percent and raised her to 90 percent. Within days, the New York Times ran a column calling for the abolishment of millionaires and, voila!, #abolishbillionaires was trending on the Democratic left. This is how fast the most astonishingly un-American ideas travel to the radical cliff on the left, and Democrat politicians are flummoxed in how to deal with them.

And we’ll wrap up this circus of absurdities with the combination of Medicare for All and open borders. Medicare for All, which is single-payer universal government health care, is estimated to cost $33 trillion over 10 years — nearly doubling the federal budget on an annual basis. Of course, it will cost more than that. Combine that with free college for all and assured housing and a $15 minimum wage (although why stop there?) and open borders in which literally millions of unskilled, uneducated immigrants who don’t even speak the language can roll on in, and you have a pretty massive national financial collapse racing toward us.

And this does not even reach the actual politics of the presidential campaign in which it is likely no Democratic contender ever will be able to survive the gauntlet of ever-changing political correctness standards and the viciousness of their own base. Meanwhile, every conceivable real and imagined kitchen sink has been thrown at President Trump and he just hit 50 percent approval in Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll.

So enjoy the spectacle. It’ll be awesome! (Except for the whole future-of-civilization part.)

    Rational people might believe the braniacs of the Democratic Party will self destruct but don’t count on it. The ability of progressives to delude themselves knows no bounds. The proof is in the MSM. How many have actually panned AOC’s fantasies? None. They continue to attack the successes Trump has had. Don’t kid yourself. More Americans (Blacks, Hispanics, liberal Jews, millennials, Asians and college educated white females) identify with the Democrats than they do with the GOP. The GOP needs a roster young candidates with a heavy dose of blacks, hispanics and females.

    There is a continuing problem with both parties and unless things change drastically, this nation is in serious trouble! Our Constitution and the Rule of Law have been trampled upon by the Demoncratic party and the Rupublicants have done nothing to thwart this issue. Our DOJ, FBI, EPA, DOI, IRS, etc have all been compromised by the “Deep State” that’s throwing this nation into the NWO/OWO. Barry Sotoro (BS), Barak Obama (BO), Clinton, Comey, Mueller, Strzok, Page, should all be in prison and it’s not happening, so where do we go from here? Revolution is one of the only answers if justice is not served.

    It’s no longer just Republican vs Democrat or liberal vs conservative, It’s the 1 percent vs the percent, rural vs urban, white men against the world. Climate doubters clash with believers. Bathrooms have become battlefields, borders are battle lines. Sex and race, faith and ethnicity, the melting pot seems to be boiling over. Our national direction is being determined by special-interest groups who demand “rights” while denying the legitimate rights of others. As a result, opportunity, productivity and even the promise of meaningful employment are being destroyed. Freedom and responsibility are being exchanged for dependence and entitlement. Excessive government spending is bankrupting the country and robbing future generations of the opportunity to succeed through honest labor.

    In the past, the U.S. economy was being slowly but surely destroyed and many Americans had no idea that it was happening. That is at least partially due to the fact that most financial news is entirely focused on the short-term. Long story short, the reality is that there were certain underlying foundational problems that were destroying the U.S. economy a little bit more every single day.

    Long-Term Trend #1: The Deindustrialization of America
    Starting in the ’50s and ’60s the United States was being deindustrialized at a pace that is almost impossible to believe.

    Long -Term Trend #2: The Exploding U.S. Trade Deficit
    Each month, tens of billions more dollars go out of the United States than come into it. In other words, every single month the United States gets poorer.

    Long-Term Trend #3: The Shrinking Middle Class
    As jobs continue to flee the United States and as wages continue to be depressed, America’s middle class is shrinking at an alarming rate. Unfortunately, a growing number of Americans have found it impossible to make it from month to month without direct financial assistance from the federal government. This is quite evident from the last government shutdown.

    Long-Term Trend #4: The Growing Size of the U.S. Government.
    No matter whether it is a Republican or a Democrat in the White House, the size of the U.S. government has continued to grow by leaps and bounds in recent years. This is a tremendous drain on the U.S. economy. The government produces very little value for the economy and yet costs a colossal amount to maintain.

    Long-Term Trend #5: The Constantly Growing U.S. National Debt
    The United States has accumulated the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world and every single month it gets worse. We are literally destroying our economic future with all of this debt.

    Long-Term Trend #6: The Ongoing Devaluation of the U.S. Dollar
    The Federal Reserve constantly destroys the value of the U.S. dollar. Since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, the U.S. dollar has lost over 95 percent of its purchasing power.

    Long-Term Trend #7: The Derivatives Bubble
    The one thing that the “Wall Street Reform Bill” should have done was something about the horrific abuses in the derivatives markets. Instead, this bill did next to nothing and instead imposed hundreds of other useless regulations on Wall Street.

    Long-Term Trend #8: The Health Care Industry
    The United States health care system is completely and totally broken. It has become a gigantic money making machine for health insurance companies, pharmaceutical corporations, and greedy lawyers. Americans pay more for health care than anyone else in the world and yet they get shockingly little in return.

    Long-Term Trend #9: Financial Power is Becoming Concentrated in Fewer and Fewer Hands
    Once upon a time the United States had a very diverse financial system. Today financial power is becoming concentrated in fewer and fewer hands with each passing year. Putting an increasing amount of financial power into the hands of just a few elite banks is a recipe for disaster any way you want to cut it.

    Long-Term Trend #10: The growing Retirement Crisis That Threatens to Bankrupt America
    Social Security is a total mess, our government in the past had decided to steal the funds from Social Security and Medicare which will not be returned. This amounted to over two trillion dollars. Government and corporate pension plans are underfunded by more than ten trillion dollars and at some point, both systems will become bankrupt.

    An increasing number of Americans are starting to realize that something is wrong although they may not know the specifics, they do realize our system is broken. We are very much on the wrong track. We have squandered the great wealth that our parents and grandparents left us and we are wrecking the greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen.

    This did not happen overnight and it will not be corrected within our lifetime, it’s far more complex a problem than one might think. One thing for sure if we fail to place the proper constituents within our State and Federal governments and hold them accountable for their actions this will never end and our Republic will have failed without a shot being fired. The problems we face are not caused as a result of either “Republican or Democrat” party lines but because both parties have failed to construct proper laws during their time in Washington DC to keep this Republic afloat. They have been self-serving and have failed America and the American people.
    For the sake of our country’s future, leaders must lay aside their pride and self-serving agendas in order to come together with wisdom and common sense at the table of reason in dialogue with respect and humility.

      Great read.
      Well, if there was any hope, that just went down the drain.
      Anyway, their will never be a perfect world, but yes these things need to be addressed and I hope that more people are waking up.
      In our lifetime, fixed. No. There will always be a new set of problems always.
      Do our best to make people aware, but also live the best happiest life you can. Not one person can control the world, as thought them democrats are trying to lead people to believe.

    Rod, you are the first to mention the 430 credit score and 2 evictions for Sandy Cortez, now part of the hispanic victim group, AOC. Finally a journalist doing his job. Thank you. Bob

      I had to take out. I got from a conservative writer on Twitter, but cannot verify it. Snopes, for whatever it is worth, ruled it false, but mostly because they too could not verify.

    Nice essay other than the old trope about nuclear energy being so ‘clean’.

    “And naturally, we will need to upgrade or replace every building in America. Every. Building.”

    Someone on TV said that this would entail tearing down and rebuilding 30,000 buildings PER DAY for the next 10 years.

    I had long ago formed the opinion that AOC, Omar, and Tlaib are Manchurian Candidates, but the GND almost changed my mind. Anything that mind-numbingly stupid isn’t a threat to anyone. I initially thought it would just be a bunch of environmental hoodoo-voodoo straight out of “An Inconvenient Truth,” but no, it went into full-bore Socialism with its jobs for all, housing for all, food for all, medical care for all, and my personal favorite, guaranteed income for all. After reading it, I realized it was no more than a weakly plagiarized “Communist Manifesto”. Then I got to the part about how we all have to become vegans, too. Then I sat back and laughed. I’m firmly in agreement with your supposition; if the Trump campaign isn’t paying AOC under the table for this claptrap, they need to start.
