The tune "Hit the road Jack" comes to mind.

"SACRAMENTO—California Governor Gavin Newsom is racking up the awards. For the first time this year, Newsom has been named U-Haul’s number one salesman for his efforts in making the state completely inhospitable.

“People are leaving the state in record numbers,” Francis DeLonge of U-Haul said. “They’re getting the hell out of the state and they need to rent trucks to do it. For that, we’re eternally grateful to Governor Newsom.”"

FRENETIC KEITH OLBERMANN CALLS ON BIDEN TO FIRE MERRICK GARLAND OR QUIT IN EPIC BALCONY RANT: ‘G*DDAMNIT, JOE!’
‘If you don’t see it that way, resign’

OLBERMANN: “Where is the president who is not sleepwalking and hiding behind naïve, antiquated clichés about bipartisanship when the other side is trying to kill all of us? Where is the president who knows that the bully understands only fear? Yours and his. And that the only way to stop the bully, to stop the Republicans, to stop the Trumps, to stop the next coup d’etat is to make them fear that they will lose everything they have. Because they have made it clear, America is going to be them, or us. And, goddamnit, Joe! It is your job to make sure it is us. And if you don’t see it that way, resign. We need somebody in your chair who realizes that democracy could be dead a year from right now. We want that to be you. But if it isn’t, the rest of us don’t have any more time to wait, or to waste."

AOC Is Latest Member of Congress to Get Sick With COVID

"AOC Is Latest Member of Congress to Get Sick With COVID"

Paul Emery

That was his closing job approval numbers and things have only gotten worse for him since then.

Meanwhile Biden is down by 9, while not good is far better by 11 points than Trumps closing numbers

George Rebane

PaulE 824am - As Bumblebrain’s champion in these pages, would you care to celebrate any of his achievements in office, as opposed to your endless citing of polls. I’m sure that you and yours have noted some things he has accomplished.

Bill Tozer

Paul. Good morning. How was Grey Eagle? Bet it was beautiful. This morning is almost one for the record books. It is so clear out there that I can see for miles and miles. Gorgeous morning, absolutely gorgeous. I always get a kick by seeing snow capped peaks….looking west. Did you know that all surveying in our area starts from a market on Mt. Diablo?

Paul, I am confused. You have endlessly pointed out Biden’s approval numbers as opposed to Trump’s bad approval numbers at the same time (or date) in their respective first months of their presidency. Have you moved the goal posts? Comparing apples to kumquats. Might as well compare George W Bush’s approval numbers when he left office to Obama’s first 11 months.

Since you probably know at the snap of your fingers what Trumps unfavorables are at the end of his first eleven months compared to Biden’s unfavorable are at the end of Joe’s first eleven months…what are they. Apples to apples, dust to dust.

Unless….no, can’t be…unless you are inferring that President Joe Biden is at the end of his presidency, thus the comparison with Trump’s leaving office would be valid. We all know that the Biden presidency is done, washed up, toast….but it has not been made official yet. While, as you often stated, that Trump has no friends (‘remember, Trump as no friends’), it appears to me that Biden is losing a lot of friends with each passing hour. Guess Lunchbucket Joe still has a friend in you. Bless you. Stay true to your school until Daddy takes the keys to the T-Bird away.

Barry Pruett

With no identifiable successes over the past year, Biden is eight points behind Trump in a head to head. Because Biden has had zero success, he spent last Thursday attacking Trump. Imagine Biden versus DeSantis. DeSantis would win in a landslide not seen since the 80’s. I am with George. Tell me how Biden has helped anyone in this country and please be prepared to argue your position.

Paul Emery

Yes indeed George. Economy improved in many ways considering he inherited the worst economy since the depression. Also infrastructure bill and he got us out of the "shit hole" Afghanistan with minimal casualties finally ending the tragic legacy of Bush and the Neo-Cons. Leaving Afganistan was one of many things Trump promised and never delivered on. The Taliban stregnted under Trump so it was a road race out of there to avoid disaster wnen Biden took over

That's just a start.

This is from The Hill. Actually unemployment is now down to 3.9.

All I have time for for now

Can you show me a link to your post Barry?

Administrivia - I draw your kind attention to the recent 'Dark Days' updates.
https://rebaneruminations.typepad.com/rebanes_ruminations/2022/01/dark-days-diary-8jan22.html

Bill Tozer

Word of the day: Malaise. Not to be confuse with mayonnaise.

"For More Malaise, Vote Democrat 2022!"

That could go down as the worst political slogan ever. But bizarrely, Democrats seem to have adopted "America in malaise" as a central theme of their political marketing plan.

Kamala Harris, channeling Jimmy Carter at his nadir, kicked off the gloom 'n doom in an interview with Judy Woodruff on PBS over the weekend. Kamala claimed there was a "level of malaise" in America...under Democrats. Has anyone considered might not exactly reflect well on the party's accomplishments while controlling the levers of power?

And then this morning, Democrat flack Bakari Sellers, a former South Carolina elected state official who doubles as a CNN political commentator, also employed the m-word, speaking of:

"The malaise we’re in now with the resurgence of the virus, inflation, et cetera."

George Rebane

re PaulE's 1007am - And there you have the reason that America's sheeple celebrate, credit, and keep voting for leftwing politicians. E.g. Biden has done everything possible to inhibit the economy's recovery from Covid, and promises to do even more. For any measurable benefits, Biden had less to do with those than I had in making the sun rise this morning. And how he screwed up the retreat from Afghanistan has set back our foreign relations for at least a generation. Allied nations have long memories when it comes to commitments involving military support, or the lack thereof - because that's where the rubber meets the road with alliances.

At least he got the hell out of there George something Trump didn't do. Why do you Trump broke his promise and didn't pull our troops out?

Also unemployment is under 4%. Care to compare that with the mess that Trump left Biden? Here are the numbers:

Trumps numbers:

Unemployment rate 6.4%

Total unemployed people 10M

Unemployment insurance claims 6M

Bidens Numbers:

Unemployment rate 3.9%

Total unemployed people 6.3M

Unemployment insurance claims 2.2M

PaulE 1245pm - The same reason Obama didn't get us out of Guantanamo as promised. And the stats are all due to the dastardly way that Trump started the Covid pandemic and got a Democrat House to spend all that money.

Paul Emery

Well George those are excuses. Thew facts are the facts. Trump did not pull us out as promised and the unemployment numbers were under his watch.

I agree inflation is way high under Bidens watch though.

Paul @ 12:45 The Biden Economic Recovery

Now, Paul, you don’t need to convince us how well the economy is doing. What you need to do is preach it to all the working stiffs out there along with soccer moms out there who might need a bit more convincing. You know, the types who feel uncomfortable and a wee bit disgruntled each time they hit the gas pumps, the grocery store, buy a used car, or seek some hired help that will show up and not come down the the Nevada County Johnny Walker flu.

Go convince the suburbanites why gasoline prices are over a dollar and climbing in just 10 months or why their heating bills skyrocketed or why they can only buy beef twice a month or why one cannot get parts for their weed eater.

Darn that Joe Biden. Have you seen the price of deck screws lately? Thanks for nothing, Branden Biden.

I know the bar is low. Right now if a govt official actually follows the law he expects a gold medal and accolades from the public.
How about some one who will go after law breakers in govt?
We know Hunter Biden is guilty of lying on an ATF form to obtain a fire arm and we know agents from the govt tried to illegally take the evidence from the dealer that holds the evidence. We know the govt knows who these agents are.
Some one needs to clean house. If not, then why should I or anyone else in this country bother to follow any law?
The crickets are louder than ever.
We are to be a nation of laws. Not a nation of men.
You can snicker and sneer all you want, but in the end this is not utopia or dreaming. It is doable and possible. It is impossible to be perfect but it is possible to start at the top and work our way down.

‘Hunter Biden's 'close friend' charged with treason in Kazakhstan’

“Former Kazakhstan intelligence chief Karim Massimov, whom Hunter Biden once described as his "close friend" and who once posed for a photo with Biden and his father, President Joe Biden, was arrested by Kazakh authorities last week on alleged suspicion of high treason.

Massimov's arrest came Thursday, one day after he was fired from his post as chairman of the Kazakhstan National Security Committee. He was arrested amid nationwide violent protests sparked by, among other things, an increase in fuel prices. The unrest has resulted in thousands of arrests and dozens of deaths.“

"WHEN THE WIND DOESN’T BLOW"

I just don't get how you could build a 'green' (ie. no petrochemicals, no nuclear) power system, especially if the plan is to electrify transportation, home heat, etc., without having a complete, on-demand, parallel system.

An honest man, one not corrupted by the grifter-green folks (or those who simply don't care that the power is out for weeks every few months), should work out the cost of a reliable solar/wind system. That would include power storage for some time plus backup power.

Hey, maybe we could simply build dams absolutely everywhere. It's rain power, baby!

Truth is, if you're convinced of the doom from human-caused greenhouse gases, you'd better be a huge (I mean YUGE!) champion of nuclear. Of course, it doesn't help a bit that the First World finds it's highest moral good in importing millions of poor souls from the Third World. They all need 'lectric too.

That's just the supply end. No doubt the push for lowering demand will continue. Low hanging fruit (car mileage, Energy Star) has been plucked. Next up is parking everyone in highly insulated apartment cubicles with mass transit plugged into keyboards as 'knowledge' workers. One big happy midden heap of humanity.

‘AP Poll: Economy, Inflation Americans’ Top Concerns, COVID-19 Takes Back Seat As Midterms Approach’

“Other insights from the poll show….

Two-thirds think Biden’s leadership is at least somewhat responsible for inflation — and about the same number blame regular economic cycles. Larger and roughly equivalent majorities blame the pandemic, government spending and regulations, and company price gouging.

Rising prices over the last six months have caused financial hardship for two-thirds of voters. That climbs to three-quarters among those living in lower-income households.
By more than two-to-one, people say the president’s economic policies have hurt rather than helped them personally. That’s largely driven by almost two-thirds of Republicans saying they’ve been hurt — nearly five times the number of Democrats who say the same. For comparison, one-third of Democrats said they had been hurt by former President Donald Trump’s economic policies in a December 2018.

Just 1 in 6 voters say they are better off financially than they were a year ago, and a majority rates their personal financial situation negatively. That’s a reversal since August, when over half said their finances were in positive shape.

Do you know of any such top-down house cleaning that has been successful as a civil process in a sovereign nation-state, instead of rapidly evolving into a violent revolution or civil war? (Kazakhstan may be a current example.)

I may be myopic here, but I just don't see how any of our civil institutions or processes can be used to purge the utter evil endemic in the Democratic Party, and the thoroughly subverted progressive Deep State. Both are working hand-in-glove to destroy constitutional America. Where would you start?

Scott O

re George 9:35 - Good question. And there are answers.
Our country can do it but not with folks like McCarthy. We have a court system that can be used but there needs to be a general push by the populace and there-in lies the crux of the biscuit.
Only a minority of the population knows about or cares that the FBI (as just one example) has become corrupt to the point of being a danger to our country.
As long as it is a never-no-mind to most of the voters and the corrupt politicians then nothing will be done.
So - yes. Eventually this clown show clomps along until either the conservatives just give up or some kind of flash point occurs and violence does break out. What is possible and what is probable are usually 2 different things and I try to always keep the differences in mind. I'm a happy warrior who always looks to the possible but am also an H L Mencken realist grump when I have to make a decision about my family's welfare. And yes, I do walk around with contradictory ideas and attitudes in my daily life - thanks for asking. I can only be certain about reality for so long before some new kind of fish slaps me in the face.
I still am having a hard time understanding how this tranny nonsense continues to prevail while almost no one actually believes any of it.

Walt 127pm - Sorry or happy (if it's a light case) to hear that Walt. While my doctorate is not in medicine, I can share what the larger Rebane family response is to C19 symptoms. The regimen includes HCQ and IVT, along with zinc and Vit D3 to which we add Quercetin. It's probably overkill, but it has worked every time.

Well - what's a few more black bodies? White leftists that set up and control this govt run crap don't live anywhere near these tax payer funded instant slums.
And this is the 'green' future the left has in mind for the general population.
From the article:
"Twin Parks was a closely watched experiment in getting inner-city housing right. Apartments, facades, and public spaces were built according to surveys of resident preferences. The buildings included three day care centers and three schools, family-size two-story apartments, programs like a tenant orientation course, and countless touches of thoughtful design."
I'd rather live in a shack with no running water or electricity than ever have to dwell in one of these "experiments" with "thoughtful design".
Funny how none of the people involved in this experiment ever had to actually live there.

One reason I like to read this blog - where else would I find a link to an article with quotes like this:
“YES! This attends to the Cultures/Histories dimension of RM (addressing Western/Eurocentric maths). And, we also want to attend to the Living Practice dimension (which is more about imagining a version that builds upon ancestral knowings, but does not yet exist).”

Look at the growing number of children being educated at home or in low cost private schools.

Now Scott, be nice….I know, I know. This one gets me almost ready to start packing. A new CA Constitutional Amendment. Ok, Scott, have you fun at our expense. I will give some highlights.

‘California Wants to Double Its Taxes’

- “All told, the new tax package is intended to raise an additional $163 billion per year, which is more than California raised in total tax revenue any year prior to the pandemic,” he writes.

-It’s not just income taxes, though. The state wants to implement a payroll tax as well, with the top rate applying to taxpayers making only $49,990 in annual income.

-The most insane part of the proposal, however, is a 2.3 percent gross-receipts tax. Only seven states levy gross-receipts taxes, which are especially harmful to economic growth because they are based on business revenue, not profits. Even if businesses lose money, they still pay the gross-receipts tax because they still made revenue, even though costs exceeded that revenue.

-Most gross-receipts taxes, however, are below 1 percent. California’s proposed rate of 2.3 percent is basically a giant flashing neon sign that says, “Don’t open a business here!” Walczak notes that the gross-receipts tax “would be imposed in addition to tangible property taxes and an 8.84 percent corporate income tax, and an aggressive one at that, the only state-level corporate income tax in the country with a worldwide tax base.”

re: BillT@6:42.

You can imagine how big the whole thing is given that it's larger than the current state government in terms of $$$$.

I was thinking about the gross receipts angle. Companies like grocery stores, who probably net less than 2.3 percent to begin with, will probably just pass the cost to the consumer (disproportionately messing with the poor, as usual).

But reading this:

"(1) An annual excise tax is hereby imposed upon a qualified business, as defined by the Legislature, for the privilege of doing business in this state at a rate of 2.3 percent of the gross receipts of that qualified business minus the first two million dollars ($2,000,000) in annual gross receipts of that business."

(gotta love 'qualified business', obviously they'll give a break to their friends, gotta love 'privilege' just because)

What exactly is 'doing business'. Most of the large businesses are going to be incorporated in Delaware, home of the Senator from Mastercard, so maybe that doesn't matter. Do they mean worldwide receipts? or just sales in California? Does every company who does business in California need to pay this on their entire sales?

Walt

Denial is the first stage.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/01/11/nancy-pelosi-house-democrats-good-shape-heading-midterms/
"Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the House Democrats are in “good shape” heading into the midterms and predicted the Democrats would remain in the House majority, despite the 26 congressmen who have announced plans to leave after the current term."

I'm sure Emery agrees with the queen.

re: The Voting Rights Law. Not a bad Readers Digest version.

VOTING RIGHTS, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE

President Biden and most Senate Democrats want to make “voting rights” a hill to die on. They want to “carve out” the Senate filibuster rules to ram their current bill through. Biden is headed to Atlanta today to perform in support of the Senate version of the bill. In its Senate incarnation it is titled the “Freedom to Vote Act.”

Byron holds that the bill seeks to “federalize U.S. election procedures on terms favorable to Democrats,” which is exactly right, but I would put it slightly differently. It seeks to normalize and aggravate the anomalies adopted for the 2020 election.

Byron’s summary itemizes operative parts of the bill. It would throw out every state voter ID law in the country, would legalize ballot harvesting nationwide, would mandate universal mail-in ballots, would mandate nationwide same-day and automatic voter registration, would mandate nationwide acceptance of late-arriving mail-in ballots, would remake the campaign finance system, “and much, much more.” Under the “much more” category, see Brad Smith’s NR column “Democrats Propose a Federal Speech Czar.”

Why? “All this in the name of stopping voter ‘suppression’ that is not happening.”

It's a pretty good issue. Dear Leader gets to look all leaderly and shake his old man fist, the base gets to speak all knowingly how black voters can't be expected to have an ID or go vote somewhere, staff members get to write laws that are cleverly constructed to add more (D) and not so many (R), it moves attention away from Bidenflation and The Plague.

‘NEA hid votes on 'white fragility,' Black Lives Matter, reparations amid new scrutiny’

The nation's largest teachers union even scrubbed from its website its 2019 vote against 'renewed emphasis on quality education.'

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/education/nations-largest-teachers-union-hides-its-vote-against-renewed-emphasis

Little dumb me posted about the NEA two years ago here. I remember. All about their big National elections and now it is memory holed……exactly like those lovely founding members of BLM being upfront and truthful and definitely unapologetically stating they are trained Marxists and have much distance for the nuclear family. Tear it down, all of it.

Anyway, because of the internet, things are not solely stored in the backs road of my melon.

Biker Bill sez: BLM is a Marxist Group with Marxist roots.
