The Socialist Democrats got trouble in River City

“You got trouble right here in River City.” With that simple refrain Professor Harold Hill, played by Robert Preston in the 1962 movie musical the Music Man, extolled the virtues of River City investing in a boy’s band to fend off the evils of a new billiard parlor opening up in their fair community.

The reality is that Professor Harold Hill was basically nothing more than a traveling confidence man preying on the unwitting residents of River City, Iowa. That same theme is playing out right now in another “river city”, this time it’s the river city of Washington, D.C., on the Potomac River.

But instead of musical instruments the snake oil being sold to Americans is the Green New Deal currently being peddled by the Socialist Democrat Party, led by the upstart New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The Green New Deal has been described by Ocasio-Cortez as her generation’s “World War II”, requiring the same commitment and determination now that Americans exhibited back then in defeating the evils of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

But according to Ocasio-Cortez and all of the couple of dozen Socialist Democrats (give or take a few) running for president, the effects of climate change threatens our very survival as a planet requiring such an effort, no matter how foolish or misguided.

According to the Green New Deal-ers America must embark upon a massive institutional and infrastructure change or face dire consequences. Air travel must be  curtailed, all vehicles must become electric replacing the internal combustion engine, and even cow flatulence must be prevented in order to limit the amount of carbon emissions occurring in America.

No explanation has been provided as to how we are supposed to do anything about pollution in China, Russia, and all the other countries who release far more carbon emissions into our atmosphere than those produced by the United States. Nor what to do about all those cows continuing to fart freely in India. I doubt any of those countries will cooperate with the economy-killing proposals put forth by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Socialist Democrat Party.

No, the real trouble in River City is within the Socialist Democrat Party. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an insurgency developing within her party, led by the future one term Congresswoman from New York’s 14th Congressional District, affectionately called AOC by her devotees in the news media.

AOC and her allies are testing the patience of Pelosi who appears to be losing her grip on control of her party, much like she has lost her grip on reality years ago. Pelosi hasn’t experienced such dissension within her caucus before as she is seeing from AOC and AOC’s freshman colleagues Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Much like rebellious teenagers, they are pushing back against Pelosi’s leadership, something Queen Nancy has never tolerated in the past. Those who did received a serious smack-down if they kept it up, and eventually found themselves being introduced on news programs as “former Congressman so-and-so”.

How much Speaker Pelosi is going to put up with before she starts exerting her considerable power as Speaker remains to be seen. At seventy-nine years of age Pelosi likely won’t serve that many more years in office before she wills her congressional seat to her daughter (which is what Socialist Democrats do), and she won’t want to leave with her party in a shambles. Out of touch with everyday Americans is ok, but in a shambles won’t do.

But there definitely is trouble in River City. And to paraphrase Professor Harold Hill, “it begins with A and it ends with C and that rhymes with T and that stands for trouble”. AOC is stirring up trouble for her party and may very well soon find herself being introduced on news programs as “the former congresswoman from New York”.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
