Happy Earth Day

It’s a great day to remember that climate change is a fraud and scam designed to transfer your power and your money to the transnational liberal elite!

So true.

Health Care

Via Sarah Hoyt, a post about modern Canadian health care with this interesting line:

If doctors see more patients than the arbitrary limit the government has set — government will force physicians to pay back any amount over their imposed limit.

The fact of the matter is that the post also delves deeper producing an interesting discussion piece.

What Fools

It’s probably just as well that he goes by his nom de plume, Wretchard the Cat, but he had an interesting Tweet thread. It applies to leftists in general, but more specifically to those in Europe and the first proof of this is ongoing in Sweden:

The lesson being administered to Europe, with its stagnation, anomie and political crisis, is that the elites cannot rule without their core populations. The bureaucrats can command no loyalty from their imported auxiliaries.

That loyalty lasts only for as long as they can buy off the auxiliairies. At the first default they will turn on the perfumed princes who will then have nowhere to turn.

Thus the logic of civil war, if proclaimed by the elites, is the logic of their Fall. One and the same. What fools.

Or, in an American context:

Opening the borders to replace the Deplorables won’t work either because the replacements won’t be as cooperative as those they are intended to replace. Yes there will be only one man left standing, but not the man they think.

Mob Behavior on the Cheap

There’s a whole thread that expands the topic, but I found this to be the most important:

Mob action has always been a reliable means of obtaining emotional catharsis and validation. Thanks to Twitter and Facebook, mob action no longer requires any significant investment of time or physical energy. In essence, mobs have been subsidized, so we’re getting more of them.

This Seems Big

There. Done.

See how easy the Saudis made it?

What?

This:

Saudi crown prince recognizes Israel’s right to exist, talks up future ties

If the MSM and half the country weren’t so weird, this would be a Big Thing (article from Times of Israel)

MN in the News

From some guy on Twitter with the very Scandinavian (and therefore MNn) name, Tom Nelson, a reference to a (Minneapolis) Star Tribune article, regarding the effects of global warming on septic systems. From the comments: “When we had global cooling 40 years ago septic systems were freezing up. We have global warming now and septic systems are freezing up. What climate doesn’t freeze up septic systems?”.

But that wasn’t the memorable part, it was Mr Nelson’s tag line:

Climate change is the religion of people who think they’re too smart for religion

Lying

In the aftermath of the demonstration in which:

200,000 people marched in protest of having too many rights [and] begging government to be more oppressive [snip]

Kurt Schlichter notes:

If liberals are lying about you now when they say you have blood on your hands, it’s a fair bet they are lying when they say they don’t intend to disarm you, and also when they say that after they disarm you they don’t intend to oppress you.

Oh, yeah, and someone notices something:

Funny how their fantasy always involves taking guns from yokels and law-abiding suburbanites. Never is it about taking the guns from gang-bangers in the ghettos.

A Prediction or Two

Thomas Wictor is one of the less well-known of those net celebrities who predicted Trump’s election far in advance of when it happened. He has also, in the last year, made it known that he thinks Trump will end up being the greatest president in the history of the US. Strong words.

Wictor has, of course, no patience with the left or the Never-Trumpers, but he is proving himself surprising antagonistic towards those on the right who are ostensibly pro-Trump but who continuously find reasons to doubt Trump. Most recently this applies to the Omnibus Budget bill.

In the following, an unrolled thread from Wictor’s Twitter feed, Wictor explains what’s happening and makes a prediction or two. Worth keeping a eye on… Just the text, links and images dropped.

(1) All right. So here’s what’s going on.

All your questions answered.

This is why Trump signed the omnibus spending bill.

Saudi general in charge of Yemen campaign speaks to euronews: General Ahmed Assiri insists Saudi Arabia’s only objective in Yemen is to “restore stability.

(2) Final sentence:

“Assiri was with the crown prince in the states last week where they got Trump’s support for the offensive against Iran, for their operation in Yemen and the rest.”

(3) “Offensive against IRAN.”

So regime change in Iran is on.

(4) Our military must now train like maniacs.

We’ll be working closely with the Iranians and their Arab allies.

THAT is why we wiped out the Russian unit in Syria.

We had to show the Iranians that we’re serious.

(5) Trump is slapping China with all sorts of penalties.

Why?

Because we don’t need their help in dealing with North Korea.

(6) H. R. McMaster is an expert on North Korea.

In April and September of 2017, the USS Jimmy Carter returned to port flying the Jolly Roger, indicating the successful completion on combat missions.

(7) The Carter patrols the Pacific and specializes in inserting and removing special-warfare units.

(8) Trump has agreed to a face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong-un.

ALL American presidents refused to do so, because that would show Asia that we consider North Korea an equal.

(9) Everything adds up: We’ve destroyed the North Korean nuclear capabilities.

And now Trump is reaching out.

(10) We used Rods From God.

(11) One of the bombardments killed Kim’s entire nuclear-weapons unit.

Up to 200 killed at North Korea’s nuclear test site:

Japanese broadcaster TV Asahi said the unfinished tunnel collapsed at the mountainous Punggye-ri site.

(12) So North Korea has surrendered.

McMaster resigned, because he won.

Now he goes back to the army.

(13) Enter John Bolton, a guy who has balls of steel.

Regime change in Iran will require balls of steel.

Ergo, John Bolton.

(14) Trump wrote this.

(15) That means the mullahs will be gone by September.

Also Hezbollah.

(16) There’s talk that Trump will use funds from the omnibus to build the border wall.

Well, I suppose it’s possible, but the wall pales into nonexistence compared to everything else that Trump is accomplishing.

(17) Besides, we’re doing pretty well without the wall.

Immigration arrests spiked, illegal border crossings dropped in 2017: DHS
Of the apprehensions, nearly 98% were along the Southwest border.

(18) Since wall-heads are never satisfied, and since they’re angry no matter what, my guess is that Trump has something ELSE up his sleeve.

Before the midterms, I think we’re going to learn a hell of a lot about Democrat criminality.

On a level that nobody anticipated.

(19) Trump will GO THERE.

(20) Trump sent this message to the Iranians.

(21) Thus, as I always knew, Trump has everything under control.

He used the wall to distract.

We’ve defeated North Korea in combat. They’ve surrendered.

(22) The mullahs and Hezbollah are next on the assembly line.

Or DIS-assembly line.

(23) Best president in American history.

(24) When you see the big picture, you don’t let pissant bloggers and pundits get you down…

(25) ADDENDUM: I forgot to add this:

In September–after the mullahs are gone–Trump will have the giant showdown with the swamp.

THAT’S when he’ll veto everything until they give him what he wants.

(26) He hasn’t done it YET, because we needed this time to prepare for regime change in Iran…

So. There you have it. Wictor’s predictions do not always pan out, especially with regards to when the actual something is to happen – as someone who only uses publicly available info, I think this is to be expected. On the other hand, the man has had too many predictions that were correct during the time I’ve followed him – I’ve known for months about the new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and his plans for an Islamic Reformation.

Things Change

One of the things that is most fascinating about these Times In Which We Live is all the topics and issues to re-examine. Over the past year, I’ve read more than one diatribe from Vox about the ramifications of and problems with free trade (for example).

Kurt Schlichter has had a number of these re-examinations, but his newest is this tweet in which he references an announcement from Citibank/Citigroup that

Citigroup will not do business with companies that allow certain kinds of gun sales. It is the first Wall Street bank to take such steps.

And responds

I think it’s time we conservatives reassess our hesitation to regulate large corporations. If they feel free to exercise their political power against us, we have no moral obligation not to hit them back twice as hard.

Break up/regulate the corporations.

As Mr Schilchter often states, leftists are going to hate when the new rules are applied to them as well.
