Hoaxes And More

Friday, September 6, 2019

A failed party that once nominated FDR and JFK is floundering in desperation. First their presidential candidates tried to out bid each other with offers of free stuff in order to inflate their poll numbers. They needed those numbers to snag a spot in the charade they call a national debate. But they knew all along they couldn’t pay for any of it.

Running out of free stuff, next came climate change. Perhaps fearing unrealistic promises of even more trillions in spending and “end of species” scenarios repelling moderates, the DNC chose to not make the next debate just about climate change. Hoping to raise their ratings, CNN, or Hoax Central, devised a seven hour broadcast with the 10 Democrats in Debate III appearing in individual town halls about, you guessed it, man made climate change.

Each took a turn explaining their plan to battle climate change. What was clear after all spoke is this is really a hoax to allow them to control every aspect of our lives.

Elizabeth Warren was the most ridiculous of crowd rejecting nuclear power and fossil fuels outright. With her plan millions upon millions of jobs would be lost and so would tax money needed for their free stuff. Fossil fuels run the steel industry needed for their electric cars and buses so that means we would import them from China. Bad idea. More lost businesses, jobs and taxes. Even worse, fossil fuels run the electric generators they need for what industry might be left and solar can’t do all that. And since it has to be done in 10 years, she would start it immediately after getting elected.

Poor old Joe didn’t stray from his usual plan. Rambling and fumbling, he kept reminding everyone of the world leaders he used to know. He did say he wants to take internal combustion engines off the road. Right now his news is all negatives and how he tries to undo what he’s done or said. Of course his relationship with the world’s worst polluter, China, hovers like a toxic cloud over all he says. And sadly, he appears to be failing in health, but he remains atop the polls. That suggests how really weak their field is.

The most egregious, however, was Bernie promising to use tax money for abortions in Third World Countries to “combat climate change.” Does anyone not see parallels here to Soylent Green and other so-called final solutions? He opposes Trump using defense funds to build a border wall, but he would use American tax money to end lives of the unborn in “poorer countries.” His comments had all the callous indifference to human life and chilling similarities to Reinhard Heydrich coldly speaking at the Wannsee Conference in 1942. It’s frightening to hear that in 2019 and it not be a hoax, he meant it. And he’s not ashamed to say it on national TV.

Who then might be next? Since none of these things they propose will effect climate any more than drawing Daisy Wheels in a futile attempt to ward off the plague in the Middle Ages, who would Doomsday Bernie want to eliminate next?
