The REAL “Occupy Wall Street”

Wednesday was a banner day for the little guy on Wall Street – the rebel, the brawler, the one who will not be put down by those in power. If you love David vs Goliath stories, this gem will make you smile.

A number of institutional investors and hedge funds had spent billions “shorting” GameStop’s stock, due to the company’s struggles to survive as the “Blockbuster of video games.” In the simplest possible terms, shorting a stock means betting that the price will go down. GameStop is the 12th-largest U.S. equity short on the market at time of publication, according to Investopedia. 

GameStop’s stock price collapsed by 62% Thursday, resulting in trading freezes. BlackBerry followed suit, collapsing 44%, AMC Entertainment was down 67% and Nokia fell 30%, according to The Hill. The Dow Jones Industrial Average bounced back by more than 500 points before noon after heavy losses Wednesday.

When someone shorts a stock, they have to borrow the shares from an entity like an investment bank. They then sell those shares at the current price, and buy them back at a later date to return to the lender. That second part of the process is known as “covering.” If the price goes down during the time between those two transactions, the short seller will profit the difference. If the price goes up, though, the short seller loses when they finally have to “cover” and buy back their shares. 

In a nutshell, a small Reddit group of independent investors in a subreddit group named “Wallstreetbets” put the screws to the the big hedge fund managers that have done the same to many smaller traded companies. It was glorious!

So who are Wallstreetbets? Essentially, they are the financial version of those that stormed the Capitol a few weeks ago, but in this case, EVERYTHING THEY DID WAS LEGAL. The same way Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of the Dem Jackass Hee Haw gang were terrified by the patriots display of angst, frustration, and DC greed, the Wall Street fat cats who have no trouble crushing their competitors were properly embarrassed both socially and financially by these renegades and believers in TRUE free market capitalism.

Entrepreneur Jaime Rogozinski, founded the forum in 2012 in hopes of building a place where sophisticated investors could discuss high-risk, high-reward short-term trading strategies, Money reported in 2018. “All the talk was about long-term investing and index funds,” Rogozinski told Money at the time. “Whenever I would go on Reddit and post a comment or question, I would get berated for not being a good investor.” Nearly a decade after Rogozinski founded the subreddit, it has amassed more than 3 million subscribers, or “degenerates,” as they call themselves. The demographics of subscribers is hard to know, but it appears to be a predominantly young, male crowd.

As Reddit user “Flexinzack” put it: “For all the big f*cking hedge funds monitoring us, this is a message from us to you, we f*cking own you now. F*ck. You.” 

If you’re a long-term investor who buys stocks and holds on to them for years, these Redditors may seem closer to gamblers. And if they’re trading what they say they are, they’re gambling thousands of dollars. The risky and speculative options trading WallStreetBets members claim to participate in has become much easier to do recently thanks to apps like Robinhood. And since many are staying and working from home during the pandemic, day trading has become even more popular.

Now for the really sketchy part of the story.

Robinhood is a financial services company who have advertised themselves as the champion of the little investor, and whose mission is to “democratize finance for all” by offering commission-free trading on individual companies, options, ETFs, and also offers cash management accounts and cryptocurrency trading. But Robinhood showed their true colors and demonstrated just who are pulling their strings. Robinhood single handedly rewrote the rules for Wall Street and stopped all selling of Gamestop shares once they saw what was happening. In 2021, Robinhood steals from the poor and gives to the rich.

After reading 30+ articles about what happened Wednesday, this video from Tucker Carlson’s show explained it the best. It’s 21 minutes long, but well worth the investment of time. Give this at least 3 minutes. You’ll thank me.

Let’s play “Spot the Democrat!”

Its getting far too easy to play this game.

This is what ‘leadership’ in Michigan looks like.

Meanwhile, in South Dakota …

Go ahead – spot the Democrat!

Because of how easy it has become, it’s not challenging or even fun any more. Scared sh*tless of covid? You might be a Democrat. Just sayin …

New Heights in Democrat Stupidity – John Kerry, Statesman Extraordinaire

You gotta hand it to the lib/progressive Democrats total level of commitment to setting the high mark for nonthinking. They are overachievers when it comes to showing just how well they can put aside fact, logic, reason, and compassion (a virtue they claim to champion) when creating new and meaningless warm-fuzzy environmental policy.

The most recent benchmark for abject cluelessness was set by none other than that failed Obama administration master statesman, former Secretary of State John Kerry, who is now Dementia Joe’s new U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.

John Kerry said Wednesday that President Joe Biden wants fossil fuel workers who lose their jobs, such as those involved with the Keystone pipeline, to “have better choices” like going to make solar panels. When asked what he has to say to people who believe they are seeing an end to their livelihoods, Kerry – being the lanky horse-faced jackass he is, said that the president is focused on creating “new jobs.” When asked what his message would be to oil and gas workers who see an end to their livelihoods: “What President Biden wants to do is make sure that those folks have better choices… That they can be the people to go to work to make the solar panels.” Yeah. Just like that, they can go make solar panels. That comment has to be right up there with Marie Antoinette’s infamous “Let them eat cake” comment about starving peasants.

But enough about John Kerry’s newest venture into callous, thoughtless commentary on massive job loss initiated by his cognitively impaired boss. Let’s have a little stroll down memory lane reflecting on those stellar achievements in Kerry’s career.

John Kerry is known for being quite an environmental threat himself as one of the biggest gasbags in American politics and singlehandedly responsible for massive amounts of terrible emissions. With his keen political instincts and superior intellect, Kerry was the one who berated President Trump over moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, insisting it would cause “an absolute explosion” — when it actually helped Trump broker a few stunning Arab-Israeli peace deals that Kerry and his former boss Obama said could never be done.

In January 2015, Muslim extremists attacked the French offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine, along with a Jewish supermarket that left a total 18 people dead including a policewoman. The Obama White House came under intense criticism for not dispatching a high-level official to join a solidarity march in Paris that included more than 40 world leaders who joined French President Francois Hollande for the event. In the usual Obama administration way, the United States made another high profile faux pas by only sending its ambassador in Paris. So how does America’s key statesmen handle the situation? He goes to France with James Taylor (yes, the singer) to have the songsmith woo the crowd with a rendition of “You’ve got a friend”, hoping to sooth the bad feelings with some warm-fuzzies. Kerry had said he hoped to give the French people a “big hug.” Every time I watch that video, I turn red with embarrassment for him – and America. Such world class statesmanship. Geezus.

And what better credentials can you have for the role of ‘U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate’ by actually setting some fine examples about how much you care for the environment. Kerry held staunch opposition to a Cape Cod wind farm, saying that he supported the farm but opposed the location, because it spoiled his fabulous view from his living room window. “Remember, he is the man who opposed a wind project on the Nantucket Sound because he didn’t want to see the view outside his window,” Ari Fleischer said on Fox News, following Kerry’s appearance at a White House briefing on climate change on Wednesday. There have also been critics who have pointed out Kerry’s frequent use of private jets, which emit up to 40 times more carbon per passenger than commercial flights. It must be fun to virtue signal when your crossing the Atlantic in your Gulfstream.

But the biggest accomplishment in John Kerry’s hallmark career has to be the millions he made by working in DC, not to mention the brilliant job of marrying the heir to the Heinz Ketchup empire. Old horse face will NEVER have to worry about money for the rest of his life. Too bad the people his boss puts out of work cannot claim the same.

Dems, we told you so!!!

Stupidity should be painful and expensive. It’s the only way that people with two-digit IQ’s will learn a lesson – maybe. Yes, we are talkin’ your average Democrat voter. The reasons for their stupidity are wide and varied. Some are simply asleep. Others are too comfortable and lazy to do their homework. And then we have the lost – those that are beyond salvageable because of low bandwith in their sub-cranial neural nets.

President Slow Joe, in an effort to outdo himself with killing 11,000 jobs directly and several thousands more indirectly by cancelling the Keystone pipeline, has now directed the secretary of the Interior Department to halt new oil and natural gas leases on public lands and waters, and begin a thorough review of existing permits for fossil fuel development. If you want to know how that affects YOU, oil and gas extracted from public lands and waters account for about 10 percent of annual US oil and gas production.  Do the F-ing math.

On top of that, it has been estimated that the domino effect from these actions in oil producing states like New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas, Oklahoma, and a slew of others will result in a net loss of up to one million jobs. And for you folks employed in the automotive industry, that will mean a decrease in sales of high profit vehicles like pick-up trucks and SUVs in those states. For those of you who work in the already decimated restaurant industry, people will eat out less. For those of you who enjoy cheap food prices and sales, kiss those goodbye from increased transportation costs. And for all of you who enjoy cheap plastic goods at Walmart or your local dollar store, kiss those goodbye, too.

From the NY Times:

“Penalizing the oil and gas industry kills good-paying American jobs, hurts our already struggling economy, makes our country more reliant on foreign energy sources, and impacts those who rely on affordable and reliable energy,” Anne Bradbury, president of the American Exploration and Production Council, a trade group that represents oil and gas producers, said in a statement.

Erik Milito, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, a trade group that represents offshore energy companies, hinted at legal challenges ahead, saying in a statement that the pause on oil and gas leasing in particular “is contrary to law and puts America on a path toward increased imports from foreign nations that have been characterized as pollution havens.”

Oil, gas and coal executives as well as Republican lawmakers described Mr. Biden’s climate change plans as a broadside against the fossil fuel industry that will do little to actually reduce United States emissions. Pete Obermueller, president of the Petroleum Association of Wyoming, said the decision to pause new leases represents “a staggering loss” to his state, while Jim Willox, president of the Wyoming County Commissioners Association called it “a punch in the gut” to Wyoming.

New Mexico, a major oil and gas producing state that owes about a third of its budget to revenues from the industry, “will be hit harder than any other state” by President Douchebag’s (NOT from the NY Times) leasing plan.

In case processing basic math and understanding simple economic principles are not your strongest attributes, or you’re a Democrat, or just an F-ing moron, that means we will be – by this time next year – paying far more than $2.40 a gallon (Today’s AAA National Average Price as of 1/27/21 is $2.408).

So, for the next four years, the next time I hear someone complaining about the cost of gas, or unemployment, or an economy that has stalled and your 401Ks are tanking, I will simply ask you who you voted for in 2020. If you provide the wrong answer, I am going to sucker punch you. Hard.

Again, stupidity should be painful.

The Bezos Pig Farm

I admit it.    I have bought tons of cool stuff on Amazon. I’ve enjoyed it. I love what they have to offer – which is just about anything and everything on the planet, in any color you want, shipped to your doorstep overnight if you choose. This is why it’s unfortunate that I will have to stop. I’ll have to look elsewhere for cheap optics for my guns, inexpensive truck parts, and bullet-proof cell phone cases in designer colors for $12.95.

It seems the richest man in the world doesn’t quite care about being caught in full blown  hypocrisy since he can dry his tears in $100 bills, and hide his shame in one of his many multi-million dollar homes. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t begrudge him for being rich, but I do despise him for being a Democrat-loving jackass along with the fact that he doesn’t even make an honest attempt to hide his hypocritical bullshit.

It turns out that the Social Justice Warrior of the corporate world has turned his back on what his leftist sycophants and political donation recipients would call a “workers rights” issue.   Come February 8th, workers at a warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama are scheduled to vote on whether to unionize. The National Labor Relations Board said that the vote could take place entirely by mail because of the Covid 19 pandemic.   

So how does Jeff Bezos feel about this? Amazon is attempting to make the vote only count for those that show up IN PERSON. The reasoning that has been spoon fed to the public is that in order to have a valid, fair, and successful election, it should be conducted manually  in person. Kinda like that mass voter fraud issue in November of just sending out ballots to everyone even though they may have moved, died, or didn’t want to vote. Funny how Bezos was silent on that.

In a court filing, Amazon claimed that an election by mail could “disenfranchise dozens or hundreds of voters”.  Huh? WT…? That was the proclaimed reason Dems sent presidential election ballots to anyone and everyone in some states.  

Yes sir, that champion of the oppressed and down trodden has turned his company into an ongoing target by the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health near council which lists Amazon among the most unsafe work places in the country.  There have been 6 worker deaths in 7 months and 13 deaths since 2013.

And now, Bezos has told the Biden administration he would like to help with vaccine distribution just days after Trump left the White House. What a guy!

Bezos is a pig feral swine.

The Unforgivable Crime of Not Feeling Guilty

While scrolling and trolling through the vast cesspool of internet bilge, I came across an article in the very unapologetically liberal New York Daily News that actually made me stop, stare, and wonder if I was dreaming a new episode of The Twilight Zone. Written by an individual named Nelson Oliveira, the article attempted to have you think present day America was identical to the deep south, circa 1920, when the KKK was a quasi-enforcement arm of the Democrat party, and had claimed 4 million members.

THE KKK – POST-SENSITIVITY AND DIVERSITY TRAINING.

According to the article, members of a small Pennsylvania community were “horrified” by a sign – with three simple words – that was seen in multiple locations in the area. The signs had been described in the article as ” … appear to be an attempt to promote racial division and white nationalism … “ along with an explanation that read “The controversial phrase is thought to be a rallying cry for hate groups and is connected to supporters of white nationalism, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

Put on your boots because you know the big, smelly, biased shit pile is going to be deeply far left when someone quotes the now shamed, debunked and exposed Southern Poverty Law Center. This group of phony social justice warriors made a very healthy living at claiming different organizations as “hate groups”, an infantile term still constantly used by the mainstream media. Even the Boy Scouts are almost classified by the SPLC as neo-Nazi, para-military hate group much like the Hitler Youth of the Third Reich. Yeah, they’re pretty much that full of shit.

So back to the signs. What did the say? What was sooo offensive? What was so racially divisive?

“N-words Must Die!” Nope. That wasn’t it. “Kill All Blacks!” No, not that either. “KKK was right!” Uh, no, not even close.

Instead, it was this –

SHOCK! PANIC! ANGER! CHAOS! RACISM! AND OTHER WORDS THAT END IN -ISM!

Yeah, that was it. “No White Guilt”. Hardly a catalyst for donning a white sheet and having a good cross burning, huh? And again, the article stated the signs ” … appear to be an attempt to promote racial division and white nationalism.”

“Honestly, it shocked me,” Sellersville, PA resident snowflake Arielle Bianchimano told CBS affiliate KYW-TV. “I was horrified by it… It disturbs me that anyone would want to instill fear,” she said. Really?Fear”? “These views have no place in our community or Commonwealth,” tweeted state Sen. Maria Collett. “And those who value a just and inclusive society should know that I stand with them and I will denounce this hate at every opportunity.”

Apparently, not apologizing when you are innocent is now “hate“. This is the level of Orwellian we have achieved in 2021. This is the level of lib/progressive white guilt that has been a staple of public education indoctrination for a couple of generations now. Yes, the majority of the general population are that stupid.

Mr Owens is now SERVING as the U.S. Representative for Utah’s 4th congressional district.

Police told KYW-TV that there’s nothing they can do because the signs were placed on private property and are considered free speech, which is exactly correct. And for the interim, its still legal until the Biden administration settles in. When that happens, all bets are off.

The fascists of the future will call themselves Anti-fascists (aka ANTIFA)

A story from the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) discusses another domestic terrorist act that will go unpunished and be carried out without any sense of repercussions by the notorious group of low-emotional IQ, socialist misfits known as Antifa. These filthy little animals make those “peaceful protestors” of BLM look like the Mississippi Children’s Choir.

Andy Ngo is the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, a Canadian conservative news site, and has documented the activities of Antifa, the leftist group that advocates violent fascist tactics in the name of – wait for it – fighting fascism. Mr. Ngo was beaten by Antifa thugs at a rally in 2019, leaving him with a serious brain injury.

Seems our little commie bedwetter friends don’t like the idea of anyone selling Ngo’s book, and will take what ever steps necessary to stop its sale. The book documents the extreme tactics and ideology of Antifa, and exposes them for the lost and soulless morons they are.

Meanwhile, Portland’s ineffectual and impotent mayor Ted Wheeler (Democrat – of course) still has no sign of testosterone in dealing with these worthless little walking pieces of human excrement. A shame. Portland used to be a bright little city that was vibrant and filled with creative types that any other city would bend over backwards to have.

But now, the city and its liberal, progressive idealism has given safe harbor to a modern day group of Nazi brown shirts who revel in its decline.

OH, THE IRONY! ONLY WHEN YOU TRULY DON’T HAVE FREEDOM IS WHEN YOU APPRECIATE IT.

“Insurrection” at the Capitol – and the faux outrage that followed

By now, there has not been a media outlet that hasn’t covered and put their spin on what happened on January 6, 2021 in the nations Capitol. All across the leftist-controlled mainstream and social media platforms, pundits and “reporters” pushed the narrative that right wing extremists, under the cult-like spell of Donald Trump, were out of control and committing acts listed as everything from a coup to sedition to treason to insurrection. Oh, the horror! Oh, the global embarrassment! What political propaganda fodder have we given to our enemies? How could this happen in America? My favorite comment uttered by many talking heads in the media and politicians on the left – “This is un-American!”

Oh, the irony! Where to begin?

Just what would make hundreds of thousands of fully employed, tax-paying, non-criminal patriots travel from every corner of the nation to come to DC and express anger and outrage? What would be the catalyst for something so extraordinary? Was it all just the hypnotic mind control of The Orange One? Wacky conspiracy theories? Racist bigots with rabies? Rednecks missing NASCAR? The Left has put forth these and other reasons, all the while overlooking the obvious that is right in front of their faces. Days later after the event, this is still a Scooby-Doo mystery that perplexes the condescending, arrogant, and self-deluding leftist social justice warriors that NEED a cause – any cause – to exist. The white-guilt lib/progressive crowd and their friends, the perpetually oppressed identity politics sub-groups of leftist/socialist minorities, have been enabled for so long that they don’t even realize that other opinions are out there. The media and our politicians on both sides of the aisle have given protections and safe spaces for decades to anyone who claims some imaginary level of oppression that opposing views are not just thought of as toxic, but not allowed. The squeaky wheel gets the oil, and the left knows this. Much like a spoiled child at the grocery store, if they yell loud and long enough, they will eventually get the cereal and snack they crave from an authority figure with no backbone. Meanwhile, the productive go about working, creating, paying taxes under the false pretense that their elected officials will look out for them. And now, when the proverbial manure has hit the fan, the rude awakening happens, with many that have chosen to remain unaware of the political world around them suddenly wake from their self-induced intellectual coma, only to look around in shock and wonder ‘How in the hell did this happen?’

THE CONGRESSIONAL COUP ATTEMPT

Before he was even sworn in, President Trump had terrified the political establishment cabal so much as an uncontrollable wild card that they were plotting a way to impeach him whether they had a reason or not. Three years later, they came up dry in what should have been a major political embarrassment. But we’re talking Democrats here, so stuff like being wrong, making up ‘evidence’, and getting your ass handed to you is not a big deal. Those types of things only matter to people with integrity, pride, and a moral compass. It’s really easy to ignore such shame when your pals in the media continue to push your message for you. The continual daily pounding of “orange-man-bad” across all media really helps to influence the clueless, those asleep, and folks with two-digit IQs.

THE ELECTION

Enough has been written about this that I am not going to list all of the reasonable amounts of circumstantial evidence that would make any individual ask some hard questions, or at least say ‘Hmm …’ , but that didn’t happen. There are people doing time in prison for the same type and amount of evidence that should have – at the very least – sparked a bipartisan conversation, with enough information available to lead to an official investigation. But the left knew it could just deny any of it existed, and could count on their bought and paid for whores and lackeys in the mainstream media to simple tell the world that there is nothing to see here. Move along. All is well. Never before has there been such a coordinated effort by Democrats and their media slave friends who will perform any politically lascivious act to carry out the bidding of their bondage masters. They deliberately and successfully kept the Hunter Biden scandal out of sight, all the while ignoring any positive Trump accomplishments such as the several middle east peace agreements that many including the previous administration said could not be done.

The mainstream media world is filled with liars, whores, beggars, and thieves who will gladly do the DNC’s bidding, and are completely open and unapologetic about it. The pigs in print and on the news networks have a razor-thin layer that separates them just above dryer lint and engine sludge on the hierarchy of societal order, so I guess they got that going for them.

THE RISE OF BLM AND ANTIFA – AND THEIR FREE PASS

The failed output of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, which was primarily run by anti-capitalist unemployed artists, gender studies majors, and philosophy grad students with $200k in student loans who had a hard time filling out job applications spawned a more determined (in the Lenin/Marx revolutionary way) group of societal losers. The more militant Antifa movement was fired up and on its way to becoming as fascist as possible in pretending to be anti-fascist. The name Antifa itself is worthy of a thousand jokes, if it weren’t for the brain dead acts of intimidation and destruction of personal property that they have caused. Portland had 120 days straight of riots along with the takeover of a police station, Seattle had two square blocks commandeered as an “autonomous zone”, the burning and looting of Minneapolis, Kenosha, Chicago, New York Atlanta, et al., and nothing was done. Apologies were made by many of those cities mayors, and everything possible to avoid confrontation was conducted by those local governments.

At the same time, along comes the Black Lives Matter movement, endorsed and fed by black race pimps like the good Rev Al, and white-guilt lib/progressives who desperately want to feel like champions of the oppressed, not realizing they suffer from the racism of a savior mentality that is completely condescending to minorities everywhere. The leaders of this movement with help from their media concubines look to promote any questionable police action as a proof of systemic police racism. Unfortunately for them, it just isn’t proven by those pesky facts and data – most of which was collected by the Obama administration. The riots, violence, and vandalism caused by BLM was showcased in Dallas four years ago, where five police officers lost there lives because of the cowardice of local government to take the necessary steps to stop destruction.

Nothing that these two groups do is EVER labeled as hate, or violence, or anarchy. Nope. They can do no wrong, because they are the oppressed; the marginalized and disenfranchised, all of which could be cured by a job.

THE FUEL AND COVER OF THE CHINESE FLU PANDEMIC

Ah, the cherry on the sundae. As any good Democrat knows, never waste the golden opportunity of a good crises. This was made to order (both figuratively and literally) for the Dems, who could easily blame Trump for letting it happen AND simultaneously taking the reigns in several Dem states ordering just short of martial law and wiping out small businesses by the bushel. And what is the clever phrase promoted by politicians who still get paid no matter how useless and scientifically baseless their draconian actions are on their electorate? Say it with me – “We’re all in this together.” If I here one more person say that, I’m going to sucker punch them hard. Very hard.

So with all of these elements, you now have the perfect political explosion recipe that is about to be thrown into a Veg-O-Matic set to “Pulverize”. Election integrity is in serious question if not completely shot, people are unemployed with their livelihoods ripped out from under them, leftist factions continue to loot and destroy without repprecussions, and the productive are expected to stay back and accept their fate, like the good little citizens they are counted on to be. Their government doesn’t listen to them, their elected officials have no courage to fight the good fight and back away when challenged.

America has had enough. There are at least 75 million who are not going to quietly sit back and watch their 1st, 2nd, 10th and maybe some other amendment rights eroded, while socialists rise to power and attempt to destroy the underpinnings of this nation. Although it is unfortunate that windows were broken, two people were killed, and others died from emergencies that were difficult to get to, the government now knows where the line in the sand is. What is really unfortunate is that it took all of this to occur to get the attention of OUR government. As for insurrection, just when did America forget that it was insurrection against tyranny that created this nation?

Nancy orders another round – of power

Well sports fans, our favorite Democrat drinking buddy – Nancy Pelosi, who just hours earlier had her illegal Guatemalan landscaping crew remove the pig head and Antifa graffiti from her palatial, walled and gated estate with them fancy, highfalutin appliances that hold her stash of Dove bars and Franzia Cabarnet, has done gotten herself re-elected as House Speaker during the 117th swearing in of the House of Reps. Shock. Dismay.

Pelosi’s ANTIFA fan mail. Looks like she has reaped what she has have sown.

That’s right, peasants and commoners. Under the benevolent guidance of her supreme majesty, Lady Nancy will once again assume the throne of the House in the “Temple of Democracy” (her words; translation: “my castle”) as Speaker. Sleep well knowing she wants to send you $600 bucks for being good little obedient mask wearers during the Chinese Lab Flu pandemic. That can buy a lot of Dove bars.

This was Nancy’s fourth non-consecutive term to lead the House, but her election this time was different. Opposition from not only Republicans but also her fellow Democrats was openly known and voiced before the vote. Pelosi had a slim margin for error, facing the Democrats’ smallest majority in decades and a pandemic that hindered House voter attendance. Some in her social(ist) circle have been quite vocal for new leadership, and Republicans and RINOs were unified against her. She received 216 votes, which was enough considering a handful of members either voted present or the seats were vacant. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy received 209.

But not all Dems voted for Nancy Antoinette. Reps. Jared Golden (D-ME), Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) voted for alternative candidates, and Reps. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ), Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) voted “present” in Sunday’s proceedings. What was interesting is that popular socialist brain surgeon and rocket scientist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Commie Squad pals, who we’re quite vocal in calling for new (and sober) blood in House leadership weren’t among the Democrats who didn’t vote for Pelosi. They’ve often been more critical of Boxwine Pelosi than Republicans.

Seems as though the well-entrenched Swamp Queen had to call in some cards on this one, along with twisting some arms, cracking some skulls, and getting the ungrateful youth of the party to fall in line.

Long live the Queen.

Homage to the South

Ah, the south. Without it, we wouldn’t have NASCAR, Chic-Fil-A, cajun and creole cooking, Kentucky bourbon, Walmart parking lot revivals, Gospel music, monster trucks, Hee Haw, the SEC and the Georgia Bulldogs (or “Dawgs” as they say), country music, that banjo kid from Deliverance, yada yada yada …

A “Dawg” as they call it in the Peach State.

In our last post, we talked about all of those woke and enlightened, highfalutin, college educated Democrat swells in charge of every major city cesspool in the U.S. and District of Columbia who will or have defunded the police. Well, we meant no disrepect by leaving out our southern friends in the great city of Atlanta, GA, and the Democrat brain trust that runs that little gem of the south.

And now, for our Democrat friends: THE PRETTY COLOR IS THE STATE OF GEORGIA. GEORGIA IS IN THE UNITED STATES. THE CITY OF ATLANTA IS IN GEORGIA. Please consult Wikipedia for more info.

According to a story in the Conservative Review, members of the Atlanta city council proposed spending $1.6 million to hire a private security force specifically to protect the affluent Buckhead neighborhood amid a rise in gun violence, despite calls to “defund” the Atlanta police department.

Following a shooting near a Buckhead mall that left a 7-year-old girl dead, Atlanta city leaders have been looking for a way to handle the city’s growing gun violence problem and, despite calling to defund the police earlier in the year, now want to splash out on a private security force to protect the city’s wealthier residents.

The city council has a full plan specifically for Buckhead, per a “Buckhead Security Plan” slide deck made available on Monday. Objectives of the plan include, “Funding and establishing a supplementary, multi-car dedicated security patrol utilizing off-duty sworn officers of APD, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, and Georgia State Patrol. The supplementary patrol will be for exclusive use within Buckhead commercial corridors and will be managed by the Zone 2 Commander at APD to augment on-duty APD patrol (NT).”

Atlanta’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, who was once a front-runner to become Joe Biden’s Vice President, is perplexed at the growing gun violence problem in her fair city. And she has absolutely no idea as to why police morale is so low, with many retiring or quiting. Her statements appear to have been directly responsible for a major decline in the police department’s overall morale and an associated “sick-out” that saw some officers walk off the job over the city’s decision to charge officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.

Atlanta’s city council voted against “defunding the police,” per local media, but Mayor Bottoms noted, over the summer, that city authorities could soon begin the process of rerouting funds destined for law enforcement initiatives to other “community-focused efforts”, whatever the hell that means.

Btw, trivia fans, the Georgia state motto is “Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation”. Let that marinate under your cranium for a bit.
