It would be interesting to have team lefty explain the littlest commiecongress-critters fear mongering about it all being over in 12 years unless we destroy the economy for global warming (she should talk to Al I invented the internet Gore about those kind of prognostications).

Talk about being wrong on so much so often for 40 years!

To be fair, I think it's built into the human condition to some extent.

The Blue Mob makes me think of a kind of 21st C. flagellant. The fact that you see mass manias in both China and in Europe tends to remove culture as a cause.

Maybe it's just simply a result of overpopulation. John Calhoun's mouse experiment writ large.

George Rebane

Of course it's built into the human condition, and there's plenty of fear mongering to go around. No one specializes in it as much and to the magnitude than the Left. DonB's reminding us of the global warming sky falling in 12 years is an excellent illustration. And then look at all the safety and environmental regs put in place by the Left motivated by nothing than abject fear of manufactured bogeymen. The WaPo report is bullcrap, pure and simple.

The left is all about fear. Scary black guns! Booga booga! Never mind the average American is more likely to be killed by lightning. We're going to run out of petro and everyone is gonna starve! Settled science from 2 or 3 decades ago. The fact they are wrong never slows them down.
It must be pointed out that the left loves to project fear into everything they disagree with conservatives about. Their fav suffix is 'phobic'. It's the left's way of ending the conversation without having to provide facts or reason.
The only 'fear' I have is seeing history repeat itself with the latest batch of ignorant fools. It's the 'fear' of seeing the 2 year old with a Ming vase. It won't end well.

fish - But scary black guns and we're all gonna die seems to be working just fine for now.

Gregory

They'll need to get rid of all the icky guns before the famines caused by disrupting commerce in a desperate, heroic attempt to save the world... starving people with guns isn't all that easy.

Robert Cross

What about all of the scary rapists, murderers, and other bad hombres gathering at our border to take over the country who will illegally vote for Democrats? Now that is really something to fear, right?

"scary black guns and we're all gonna die seems to be working just fine for now." yes it is working....on conservatives who are afraid of anyone who is not old and white and male.

BTW, their love of guns can in many cases be equated with the same as stated above.

RobertC 907am - I was going to say, 'You're not serious, right?', but then I recalled who I was responding to, and instantly concluded that you are serious. More evidence of the Great Divide.

Reducing fear:
I have been kicking around an idea that may be controversial, but it’s worth a try. Since the caravans are in large groups and all are good people and most are bringing their children with them.....why not just turn a blind eye when a groups of a 100 or so are found on the US side of the border. What I am proposing is to not pick them up or process them. They all have contacts with friends and family in Cleveland or Chicago or New York and the children are with the parents. They will be fine. No family separations. Their contacts can pick them up. Some have plane tickets already and most all have phone numbers to call.

That will free up resources to check more vehicles at the legal points of entry were the drugs come in. The Border Patrol is not a travel agency or a medical facility. Just do the ole blind eye and wave to groups and keep driving. That will save precious resources and elimate any fear of bad hombres. That will save court costs and elimate the need for more immigration judges and housing. I fear our we are spending too much. I fear building more housing for Border Patrol agents is bad for the environment. I fear that the Border Patrol buying more buses will hasten the hockey stick.

And my plan would eliminate or reduce fear. Like, El Paso is on the border and they can walk to the nearest bus depot and be on their way. Or hitchhike. Ride sharing. They can walk, in the safety of the group, to Yuma. That would save any expense of processing them and driving them all the way to Phoenix. The carbon footprint of busing folks all the way to Phoenix must be stopped. Our planet will be destroyed in 11.9 years anyway, so my plan will also reduce fears of Climate Change. Reduce, not eliminate fear. Its worth a try.

Busing folks to Phoenix is bad for our environment. Climate Change is real. I fear the caravans will not show up to their hearings. If we elimate processing folks and stop giving them any paperwork, we save on trees and cannot charge them for failing to appear. My fears will be reduced.

More evidence of the Great Divide.--

That's right George, I am not afraid to go out of my door for fear of being accosted by women and children seeking asylum from violent countries and banana republic dictators with their American trained and armed death squads. What people, such as yourself, fail to acknowledge is that those refugees coming to American come from countries with a history of American intervention in the form of coups that over threw legitimately elected governments that happened to be socialist leaning. Perhaps if the CIA hadn't interfered so often in South American politics the US wouldn't now have this so-called problem. We should welcome these people with open arms as it has been our failed foreign policy that brought them here in the first place. Do you know how the term 'banana republics' originated? Hint Chiquita.

George Rebane

RobertC 1038am - Ah yes, the evil America must now suffer retribution from all those countries it has ruined, countries which without our interference would have flourished with their traditionally strong cultures providing their citizens peaceful and productive homelands in which to abide and raise their families. Now instead, it is time for payback - let them all in and show the rest of us how a real country, sensitive, diverse, inclusive, ..., should be run.

Sorry Bobbie, but in the United Fruit glory days, Democrats were in charge of policy in the USA.

In essence, what you're saying is that Cold War machinations mandate unrestricted immigration of undocumented Democrats now.

'Beyond Looney' newly defined. Here's an example of AOC's latest observation that where America currently resides is "garbage". Moreover, her prescriptions for America are nothing more than to take the country back to our core values, because that's where we were and from that we have strayed so far that returning to it seems radical. She's a new joy every day. But Nancy is more desperate than ever to figure out how to stick a cork in her.

AOC is the gift that keeps on giving. She is a total hypocrite of course and every yap she does proves it. The reason the press likes her is she is cute and all those press boys want to, well you know. Anyway, I hope she keeps it going and maybe that will wake up the people to her lunacy. When she starts walking, gets rid of the microwave and central heat, maybe she will make some inroads. She was a bartender and I wonder how many people are now addicted to liquor after being served by her?

The Red Guard. Listen to the children

In 1966, a group of middle school students in Beijing named themselves "Chairman Mao's Red Guards." Mao's support for them led to the name "Red Guard" being adopted by groups who were sanctioned by Mao and his supporters to "rebel against the system" all over China. Sworn to protect Chairman Mao and his revolutionary line, the Red Guards and other, older revolutionary rebels caused havoc and eventually turned on each other, resulting in great destruction and considerable loss of life.

Once the Red Guards had served their purpose of overturning the old order, these restive young people were exiled from the cities to be re-educated by the peasants in the countryside. Many did not return to the cities until the late 1970s; some never did.

For many people today, images of fanatical Red Guards dressed in old army jackets and wearing red armbands, waving copies of Mao's Little Red Book and chanting "Long Live Chairman Mao!", are all that remain of the complex, at times idealistic, and often violent student movement of the Cultural Revolution.

While young participants in the Cultural Revolution are commonly referred to simply as “Red Guards,” in reality, they were originally one specific group of students. These students decided to call themselves ‘Red Guards’, hong weibing; they saw themselves as soldiers (bing) who were fighting to protect (wei) the Revolution and Mao Zedong Thought (represented by the word ‘red’ or hong)............

Listen to the children. They are afraid and for good reason. When adults or teachers or parents or older people children trust tell kids their future is in serious peril, you bet they feel fear and trepidation.

Confessions of a Red Guard

Listen to the children

Weinstein became a target of student protestors, and at one point was forced to avoid campus while they searched for him in parked cars. He and his wife, Heather Heying, also a professor of biology at Evergreen at the time, sued the college for failing to protect them. As part of the half-million-dollar settlement, both resigned from their teaching positions.....

The authors exhort the college to “require all faculty and staff to participate in on-going educational programs on cross-cultural awareness, implicit bias, institutional racism, harassment, and discriminatory behavior.” They also urge “a comprehensive reform and restructuring of the curriculum that makes the academic experience more ‘student-ready’” (whatever that means).

It seems that the trio who authored the report—a retired judge, a former college trustee, and an expert in higher education—are overthinking things. Most onlookers to last year’s events at Evergreen were simply horrified to see that an academic institution would permit the shaming and mobbing of a tenured faculty member—instead of defending his right to voice a politically incorrect (yet by all means reasonable) opinion.

As we saw in the exchange last spring between President Bridges and a mob of students holding him physically captive in the library, the inmates essentially took over the asylum. (At one point during the chaotic meeting, students actually forbade him from using the bathroom.)

“During the Cultural Revolution in China — which took place between 1966 and 1976 — Mao Zedong mobilized groups of devoted young people who called themselves "Red Guards" to carry out his new program.”

George 10:53 -- if the shoe fits wear it George-- you seem to be very uninformed (ignorant) about American history as it applies to south of the border.. and once again dodging the real issue of why those people are gathering at our border and deflecting it into some off the wall babble about evil America. Perhaps it is time for the American corporate interests who sponsor the banana republic dictators to pay the piper, as it were. although they won't pay.. it has been and will be American taxpayers land the poor people who live in those gross dictatorships who end up paying the real price.

Greggy 11:01 how does " dems in charge" if true as you claim, change the facts? Just another lame excuse to blame the dems screed instead of addressing the issue at hand. Didn't we just have this "dodge the question" conversation earlier?

Toad -- Cortez tossing out the Aztecs? Can you be any more irrelevant? A more relevant response would have been to talk about how Howdy Doody was really a marionette and not a real person.. or didn't you know that?

“These ‘struggle sessions’ (Chinese term), conducted by the youth who became the Red Guards, would take place in streets, conference halls, legislative chambers, classrooms, administrative offices, and wherever else such targeted people could be found, hounded, transported, or summarily executed.” —G.

Re: update

“America is the only country in the world founded on a belief in limited government. It is a uniquely American value. And that is precisely the problem: It is uniquely American. Very few immigrants to America bring with them a belief in limited government.”

Next time someone labels your opposition to mass immigration “racist” or “xenophobic,” tell them you are equally opposed to New Yorkers immigrating to Florida and Californians immigrating to Arizona. And for the same reason: They bring with them the very values that caused them to flee. The only difference is Latin Americans are largely unaware of what they are doing; New Yorkers, Californians and other leftists who move to conservative states know exactly what they’re doing: voting for the government policies from which they fled.

It can’t happen here

But city spending, up some 32 percent since de Blasio took office — triple the rate of inflation — may need to be cut deeper, these analysts add. The city’s long-term pension obligations have escalated, as well, as its workforce has soared by more than 33,000 in the last five years.

Apparently I nailed the retribution angle with RobertC who also confirms that the evil American corporations need to now start paying reparations. And he, of course, totally ducks the impact on America of over one millions illegals coming across the border annually - all he and his are sure of is that it does not constitute a national emergency.

Would be interesting to hear one of these socialists prescribe the amount of the reparations, paid by whom, and to whom to make things right in their world.

Robert Cross

Greggy --"Sorry Bobbie, but in the United Fruit glory days, Democrats were in charge of policy in the USA." Did you just make that up?

Guatamala coup -- 1954--not to mention Iran twice
E Salvadore in the 1980's
Iran/contra --1980's

All these happened under Republican administrations

George -- avoiding the issue once again -- The amount of reparations is simple -- stop criminalizing these people (invaders) who are just seeking a better life than the one they were living, in extremely violent countries, most of the blame for which can be directly laid upon US intervention into their political systems and elections and US support for despot regimes. Perhaps if you had been from a South American country instead of Nazi Germany you might see things a little differently as you and your family stood at a border crossing and were told to go back from whence you came and stop tying to invade our country.

Todd Juvinall

BoobieC has no reading comprehension. He thinks AOC is his next fantasy date once he gets out of the Brown House. But my guess is she is too smart for that moron to even get to the dream stage.

Bill Tozer

To pay for reparations, does the Democratic Party intend to sue itself for damages?

What about the role of the Democratic Party in slavery, Jim Crow and the resistance to ending them? Republican President Abraham Lincoln, elected on an anti-slavery platform, signed the Emancipation Proclamation and led the North in its victory over the South at the cost of at least 620,000 soldiers dead on both sides. Democrats opposed the 13th Amendment, which freed the slaves, the 14th Amendment, which conferred citizenship on them, and the 15th Amendment, which gave them the right to vote.

During the debate over the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Democrats, including Sen. Al Gore Sr., orchestrated a record-breaking 60-day filibuster in an attempt to block the bill from coming to a vote.

Since Democrats opposed freeing the slaves (a Democrat assassinated the Republican President who freed the slaves), were the party of Jim Crow Laws, the party of Segregation.....we know who is to blame here and who should pay reparations: The Democrat Party.

New York City’s long-term liabilities— including pensions, bonded debt, and retirement benefits for city government employees— reached a record-high $257.3 billion, according to an October 2018 Citizens Budget Commission report.

"It also appears that de Blasio will not get help from fellow Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is trying to address a $2.3 billion state budget deficit by using auditors to bill wealthy residents fleeing the state for lower-tax regions."

Robert C @ 01:34PM Under your criteria one third to one half the population of South American (470 Million) are eligible to come to the US seeking a better life, how are we going to employ 158 million people? How are we going to employ the 70K a month crossing the border now, over the next ten years, 47% of the jobs in will be done by robots according to leading employment studies. Those with jobs will need special skills. The Little Hoover Commission Report was very clear California is not prepared for the transition to an automated future. If over the next ten years industry cannot employ the current work force how are we going to employe 158 million more humans? Looking forward to your solution.

Re: update and I never thought I would feel sorry for Comrade Bernie...but off with his head. He is old school. It ain’t about class struggle no more, it’s all about race. Race, race, race, Bernie. It’s all about RACE! Adios amigo. You ain’t woke enough, you old white heterosexual male Jew, you. What have you done for me lately?

“Sanders is currently being excoriated by a radical segment of the Democratic Party for his racial views. Despite the fact that Sanders marched with Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement, he is now viewed as retrograde in his racial viewpoints. That’s because he believes that socialism is a cure-all for racial discrimination. For example, Sanders refuses to endorse racial reparations, stating instead that broad-based governmental programs ought to benefit those who are lowest on the income ladder. He has likewise stated that candidates ought to be judged based on their ideas rather than their intersectional characteristics. In 2016, Sanders stated, “One of the struggles that you’re going to be seeing in the Democratic Party is whether we go beyond identity politics.”......

Proponents of intersectional politics point this out, suggesting that those racial divisions continue to dominate American life. But that’s simply not true. In reality, America is less racist now than it ever has been; laws that discriminate on the basis of race are unconstitutional; racial politics has been relegated, for the most part, to mind reading the supposed motives of political opponents. Sanders implicitly acknowledges that truth when he calls for solutions that do not take into account race as a key factor.

And for that sin, Sanders is being othered by many in the Democratic Party. He’s viewed as old-fashioned, hopeful, naive — Trumplike in his view of race, a proponent of a hackneyed baby-boomer “Green Book” mentality. He’s outdated and wrong.

Thus Sanders must be ousted for his failure to conform to the intersectional politics that now dominate the Democratic Party.

Boobie C 134pm

From FDR's time until Clinton's first midterm when Gingrich took over, Dems pretty much controlled the Congress and controlled the pursestrings. There also was a left-liberal SCOTUS.

And the Socialists winning weren't doing it only with support of the masses in their country.. they were being helped by outside monies, too. It was the cold war; to paint the USA as being responsible for all the woes south of the border is ludicrous. Absolutely ludicrous.

United Fruit was started in 1899, the term Banana Republic was coined in 1901, and lives on as Chiquita Brands ... they also didn't have anything to do with the Bay of Pigs or the Cuba Missile Crisis. There was Soviet money flowing to destabilize countries that were friendly with the US just as they propped up the murderous regime in Cuba.

l

Two of Bobby C's popular movements have taken root in SA & CA since the Cold War ended. Both are self-styled socialist outfits. The victims? Venezuela and Nicaragua. In the latter case, Reagan blocked Ortega with an elected govt for sixteen years, but eventually Ortega found his way to power. In both places, the dictators took over, eliminated all organized opposition and turned the places into failed shithole countries where before they were comparable to their nighbors.

In the case of Nicaragua, it is the second-poorest country in the hemisphere after Cuba and the people so defeated they can't even join the great migration. Think about it, clown. L

L

As far as the "Banana Republic" interventions, those pretty much ended in 1954. The forcible removal of Noriega in Panama was about drugs, not politics.

And finally, why is Costa Rica such a striking contrast to the rest of CA? Same ethnic group, opposite result. Hint: Costa Rica has no interest in socialism.

George 6:26 -- you apparently missed my point. My point was that your family went through an extremely horrible situation and struggled to get to America.. Not too different from the caravan people though your situation was probably far worse. No one told you to go back that you weren't welcome. You looked to America for a better life just like these people are. My point was you were welcomed with open arms, these people are being rejected. Why them now and not refuges like you were then?

George Rebane

RobertC 1221pm - the reasons are legion if you're familiar with the sane immigration policy America had until things started unraveling about 1970. I have described in detail the process that the Rebanes and hundreds of thousands of other WW2 refugees had to go through to be admitted unto these shores. And we all assimilated instantly. For you and yours not to see what is happening to the country now as millions of illegals are pouring in through our porous southern border (and continue violating our laws) simply boggles minds when we think of you as patriotic Americans, and then again it makes perfect sense when we think of you otherwise.

There is no vetting any more at the border. Your leftie sob story about all the poor folk at the border being refugees from certain death are false. It's catch and release and they very seldom, if ever show up for the hearings. More illegality. Then it's "oh well - they're here so let's just give them citizenship and skip all the other stuff that the folks that followed the rules had to do."
If they are fleeing violence then they should present themselves at the proper place and time to the authorities. But no - they just come across with an attitude of "to hell with your rules!"
Those are not the kind of people I want in this country.

Trapped in bubbles and fearful of repercussions, boardrooms and newsrooms have demonstrated plenty of responsiveness to the online left. But if growing exasperation leads to more commentary like SNL’s, it’ll help bolster everyone’s ability to stand firm in the face of silly smear campaigns, reassuring decision-makers their bottom line won’t be affected by a lame hashtag.

Letter from a true believer in prison from Stalin’s “Golden Boy of the Revolution”

—My sweet Anushka! My Darling!

I write to you on the eve of the trial, and I write to you with a definite purpose, which I emphasize three times over: No matter what you read, no matter what you hear, no matter how horrible these things might be, no matter what might be said to me nor what I might say – endure everything courageously and calmly. Prepare the family. Help all of them. I fear for you and the others, but most of all for you. Don’t feel malice about anything. Remember that the great cause of the USSR lives on and this is the most important thing. Personal fates are transitory and wretched by comparison. A great ordeal awaits you. I beg you my dearest, muster all your strength, tighten all the strings of your heart, but don’t allow them to break.

Do not talk carelessly with anybody about anything. . . .


“There you have it. Bukharin feels compelled to say that the great Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) is “the most important thing.” And be careful, oh, so very careful, what you say to anybody. Political correctness on steroids. That’s socialism in a nutshell for you.

No doubt the stated intentions are oh-so-pure and oh-so-good, like “liberte, egalite, fraternite.” It’s the sort of compassion Flannery O’Connor wrote of when she noted that “tenderness leads to the gas chamber.” That’s because, at the end of the day, socialism is a manipulative machine of human cruelty powered only by a blind greed for power. It forces people to finely mince their words, or remain silent.”
