The Fab Four

I am talking about the four congresswoman who are in the news. Young and charismatic, they have an immense following. They seem to be constantly in the news. They consider themselves to be the progressive squad. Although they do not represent me or my district, they have a definite influence. My local congresswoman absolutely beams when she is in their company.

My initial view was that they are just a flash in the pan. I paid little attention to them. They did not seem to know simple math. However the media loves them, and I mean the media on both sides. The Fab Four takes so much air time that there is little room for real news. They have become the face of the progressive agenda.

Over the weekend President Trump trump trolled them on Twitter, hard. Really hard, it is what he does. Now I pay no attention to what people say on Twitter, however I sometimes pay attention to reactions.

So Monday I tuned into The Five, my favorite news show. It is a show with five thoughtful news anchors with different points of view, and they always have one liberal commentator. I do want to listen to the designated liberal, for they typically have a tough job to logically argue their point of view. I no longer listen to CNN, NPR, MSNBC and others. I do want to listen to the voice of an alternative point of view. I get It with The Five. It is not my intention to silence an alternative point of view.

By design or coincidence the Fab Four scheduled a news conference at five. Of course The Five have their news show at five. I presume that by having a news conference the Fab Four wanted to elevate the Trump Tweets to Prime time. Amazingly what we saw was the Fab Four unfiltered, by either positive or negative media coverage. I presume that was the intent of the obviously trolling Trump tweets. Unfiltered coverage of the self described Progressive Squad.

As I watched I agreed with few things they said. what they displayed was simply hate on parade. The press loves these people? I do not understand. Though I do have my explanation that I will get to shortly. I do understand that the Fab Four are duly elected, and represent their districts. Their point of view is the point of view of many people, and they have influence. Being young, they will probably have influence for many years. So it is good that we get to listen to their voice unfiltered.

Young and charismatic, like the Beatles, the Fab Four have a huge and loyal can base. However that is not why I call them the FAB Four. FAB is actually an acronym for “Fascist and Bigoted”. Simply said.

Trump tweets are really rather sophisticated. They are designed for reaction. For example, if the word country was replaced with district the offending tweet would have been a lot more logical. However it would have had nowhere near the reaction it did. As a logical question it would have been ignored. By calling a district a country it emphasizes the importance of the district. The job of representatives is to take care of their districts, or their own little country. The FAB Four have forgotten that. All they care for is personal aggrandizement. President Trump pointed that out with a simple tweet.

Dark Energy

As there is dark energy in the universe, there is dark energy in politics. I guess dark energy in politics may be more popularly known as the Deep State. I am not sure if that is correct, as the Deep State is sometimes referred to the unelected bureaucrats making decisions. The dark energy that I refer to is an external influence to the political process.

Because dark energy is not a part of the process, it is not part of the political record. Therefore it is hard to track. I will admit that dark energy effects both parties. I will briefly talk about two sources of dark energy in politics.

The second largest charitable foundation in America is the Soros funded Open Society Foundation. It is somewhat known that they are very generous when it comes to buying politicians. The official line is they are promoting their values, but the reality is they are just buying politicians. Obviously they are not the only ones buying politicians, they are just the biggest spender.

Totally unreported in any media is the influence of Richard Trumka. He is the president of the AFL-CIO. I Googled to find out who he is. I am sure he must have an influence on the machinations of union influence in politics.

it is a bit surprising that someone who would probably have huge influence on politics is so unknown. A bit of Googling was interesting, and scary. I will leave a bit I found on Wikipedia. Richard has a story that he tells about a match. He suggests that if you light a match, you will get burned. He claims that he is not making a threat, just stating a fact.

In my world a match is struck for light, and warmth. Not pain. To deny light, well that is darkness. Yes, there is dark energy in politics.

Self Identifying Fascism

I recently saw some sort of poll where forty five percent of the respondents believe that President Trump should be impeached. From what I have seen his only guilt is the inability of Robert Mueller to prove his innocence. With the inability to find crime, the fascist left seemingly has decided that this lack of proof of any crime, is proof of an impeachable cover up.

These people seemingly believe in the framing of an innocent man. Is this just a simple projection of their fascist selfs? Of course they probably don’t realize that is what they think. For they are just the victims of persuasive fascist propaganda. Our government is not a fascist government, at least not yet. However our commercial biased society is. Think Hollywood group think, and everything that group think controls. Then there is Union group think, and the incredible power behind that type of group think. This type of group think is currently so out of control that even the Democrat party can keep up with it.

Is this a genetic reaction of socially insecure control freaks seeking even more control? I do not know the causes. is it a sophisticated coordination for thought control. Absolutely. Could it be a natural genetic reaction to good times? There is no grand and unifying struggle in our age. As I like to say, life is good. However for some people there may be a genetic predisposition for self destructive struggle. As I (and many others) have noticed there is a unity in hatred. I offer for my proof the 45%.

As an observation, the leadership of the fascist left is very well to do. It has been my inclination to believe that as the beneficiaries of our society they are inclined to preserve the status quo. As I do not associate with the dependent class, I realize that they are a unknown that I do not understand. It is my opinion that the two groups combined are the coalition that is the 45% for impeachment.

Even though times are good we live in a deeply corrupt society. President Trump is the revolutionary. We are lucky enough to live in a system that allows for peaceful revolution.

Cathedrals of the Universe

Time is changing, we understand more about time and the cosmos than we ever have had in history. We are on the cusp of a new era of time and space.

A thousand years who societies would engage in endeavors that would go on for generations. I am talking about the great edifices constricted of stone and glass and dedicated to light. Construction could go on for hundreds of years. In a way it was a competition between the city States of the time. Without a cathedral, a town was nothing.

Corporations of today typically look at quarterly revenue, long term plans are exceptions to the typical focus on short term returns. However a few corporations with far sighted idealistic leadership look to the future and space. These are just the footsteps to future cities, and Cathedrals of the Universe.

Round Two

Here we go again, right off the bat, non answers and Trump bashing. The essence of the debate is rescind the Trump tax cuts and everyone can have healthcare.

I have to give the moderators some credit, they actually ask how some of these grandiose social programs.

The cost of education, which is a problem, was talked about.

Kamalia Harris revived a huge round of applause when she mentioned the cost of putting food on the table.

Back to healthcare, they do not agree at all on how to proceed on healthcare. I guess that is normal. The do all agree that illegal immigrants should have healthcare, presumably free.

Pardon me, but this is a fascist train wreck. Donald J Trump used to talk about a big beautiful gate. They called him a racist. These people on the stage are despicable.

I turned them off.

I will admit to some curiosity on one question, in round one several of the candidates mentioned that the would go after President Trump legally for perceived crimes after he left office.

It is a most pertaining question for me. The Republicans claim to have all sorts of evidence of malfeasance by the Obama administration. Can you imagine the outrage if Obama was charged with high crimes and misdemeanors.

If a majority of Democrats agree that there is no privilege to being an ex-president, watch out.

Round One

In the first half hour Castro and Delaney offered up some sort of  policy. The others just appeared angry, however everyone agreed that the government should provide health car and abortion. No real mention on how to pay for or implement universal healthcare.

In the second segment, the anger continued. It was about immigration, Castro tried to make a point, however I did not understand it. The conversation quickly devolved though it seemed that they wanted everyone to be a citizen. Lots of anger directed at the President.

So my question is who is incentivizing the people attempting to cross the boarder?

Next segment is about Iran. Oops commercial break, what the heck, I will check for Trump tweets. President Trump mentioned how Australia handles immigration. Then he tweeted “Boring”. So we know how he feels.

after the break the moderators tried to change the subject to guns, however there was some sort of technical difficulty with the microphones.

Good God, what a train wreck. It is proven when Democrats are in charge gun sales to up. When Republicans are in charge gun sales to down. What a bunch of violence loving fascists. The momentum is amazing, and they are right off the rails.

Cory Booker did mention having a gun license, not sure what to think about that.

Personally I think that Elizabeth Warren will get the nomination, however she is one angry person. As are they all are.

Climate change is the next topic. Finally someone said the truth, “The Democrat party has to reconnect with the working people, or nothing will happen” . Sadly I did not get his name.

I will say the moderators asked some good questions. Unfortunately the answers were weak. Like this paragraph, just a bunch of words with no real meaning.

Biggest cheer line was the answer to the question “What is the biggest threat to the United States?” The answers were climate change, nuclear weapons, China and Iran, but the biggest cheer was for Donald Trump. No that was not a nice cheer.

So far my favorite has been Congressman Tim Ryan, however that is just me. The others were much more angry, I am sure the Democrat voters will choose someone who has anger in their heart.

The last word, courtesy of Elizabeth, more government is good for you.

Fascist Train Wreck or Solid Policy

I do plan on watching the first Democrat debate tonight. I may or may not pay attention to any Trump tweets. Typically I pay zero attention to Trump tweets, however I may make an exception for the debates. It really depends on on the contents of the debates.

Ground rules, if the debaters attack President Trump and or his policies, he is entitled to defend himself, or his policies with a tweet. However if there is simple and solid policy discussion, any presidential tweets will be ignored.

My opinion will be forthcoming.

Cheers
