  • The Biden (Sanders/AOC) Climate Plan: Socialism Wrapped in a Green Bow

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator. Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft,...

    House Democrats plan to introduce a new bill to defund police departments, establish reparations for Blacks and victims of police brutality, abolish federal law enforcement agencies, and more. Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley unveiled the BREATHE Act, which has not yet been introduced in the House, calling it “a new vision for public safety.” The bill was created by the Movement for Black Lives, a self-proclaimed abolitionist, anti-capitalist group, who also participated in its unveiling.

    The lone white candidate in the race for the Massachusetts 12th Suffolk House seat — a district made up of 70% Black residents — is dropping out in the wake of the national civil rights movement that was sparked by the police killing of George Floyd. Cam Charbonnier, a longtime aide for Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, cited this “inspiring” movement in his decision to leave the race as he wrote in a letter on Thursday, “I realize that this is not my moment.” “… It has become clear to me that at this time and in this district, I may...

    Following a comprehensive investigation, the Justice Department announced today that it has found reasonable cause to believe the Narcotics Bureau of the Springfield, Massachusetts, Police Department (SPD) engages in a pattern or practice of using excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.  The investigation was conducted pursuant to the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 and was announced on April 13, 2018.The Department of Justice found that the Narcotics Bureau’s pattern or practice of excessive force is directly attributable to systemic deficiencies in policies, which fail to require detailed and consistent use-of-force reporting, and accountability...

    BOSTON (CBS) – As Massachusetts’ reopening phases set some parts of life back in motion slowly, certain agencies are in high speed making up for lost time. The state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles is cranking out registration renewals, and working quickly to get drivers on the road. There is a mailing delay for registrations renewed online, by phone, or by mail beginning on 5/22/20. Because of the pandemic, there are more customers renewing by mail and online, so the number of transactions exceeded projected stock levels. Registrations renewed between 5/22 and 6/30 should arrive with decal by 7/15.

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Fascinating news from The New York Times this week! Reviewing its op-ed titled “I’m a Direct Descendant of Thomas Jefferson. Take Down His Memorial,” I gather we now weigh Americans’ opinions based on who their ancestors are. I’m not sure that’s a good idea, but the rules are the rules. Otherwise, why would the Times consider it so important to publish Lucian Truscott, a great-great-great-great-great-grandson of Jefferson, at all? Blut uber alles! Obviously, we’re going to need a list of Whose Opinion Matters. Here’s my first stab at it: Descendants of John Adams will have their views count the most....

    For those of you unfamiliar with cancel culture, it’s speech that speaks out against other speech that may be speaking speakings that other speakers find offensive. The organizers of the recent Harper’s Magazine letter against cancel culture didn’t ask me to participate in their project, despite the fact that my Uncle, T. Gore Pollack III, was that magazine’s founding editor. They neglected to include me because they’re afraid of my ideas. Also, I’ve either divorced, broken up with, or participated in a conscious friendship uncoupling with at least a dozen of the signatories. Such is the price of profligacy and...

    A Venezuelan refugee pushed back strongly on Ilhan Omar’s anti-capitalism statements, claiming on “Fox & Friends" that Democrats have a hidden agenda behind their police reform protests. “I think that the big problem that her statement shows is that she revealed her whole intention from the beginning was not about the criminal justice system," said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up in Venezuela and left the country as socialism took hold. "The Democrats have not wanted to pass things like the Justice Act that the GOP proposed in the Senate by Tim Scott,” said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up...

    ----snip---- It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who represent the core conservative values that our citizens hold dear. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who support the Trump agenda and the conservative movement our president promotes. It is time for Alabama to have two senators, not one, who believe the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the bedrock foundation of our nation and not just an antiquated and outdated list of suggestions. I stand ready to give Alabamians the faithful service and honest representation that Doug Jones has failed...

    A joint effort by former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to unify Democrats around Biden's candidacy has produced a 110-page policy wish list to recommend to the party's presumptive presidential nominee. Throughout the Democratic primary, Biden stuck to a more moderate platform, while Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and much of the rest of the crowded field courted progressives and advocated for broader structural changes. But as the United States faces a growing pandemic and unemployment rates at the highest levels in generations, Biden has been talking more and more about a presidency that approaches Franklin...

    Many American colleges and universities are considering virtual or hybrid education models for the upcoming Fall semester, due to the COVID-19 precautions. Enter the Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency (ICE), which announced Tuesday that, if schools opt to cancel in-person classes, their international students will be forced to leave the U.S. in the midst of a global pandemic. According to statistics from the 2018-2019 school year, over 1 million international students will be impacted by the policy. Students and professors alike immediately denounced the xenophobic, harmful decision — and now, universities are using lawsuits and new learning models to fight...

    Edward Markey appears headed for a bruising defeat unless he can turn around his struggling campaign in the next two months — a difficult ask for a 73-year-old incumbent running against a well-funded young heir to a political dynasty. The latest developments are not good for Markey — and we’re not even talking about his staggeringly stupid decision to pose on his porch with an American flag on the floor. Democratic sources say two new polls in separate congressional districts show Markey trailing U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III by double digits. One of the polls was from a Democratic...

    The far left, led by Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), is championing a reform measure dubbed the “BREATHE Act,” which contains a slew of radical proposals, including the call to incentivize states to pass laws that expand voting access, allowing “local and State resident voting for undocumented people.” The proposal, drafted in partnership with the Movement for Black Lives, aims to overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system, providing a range of radical changes — from defunding the police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to establishing a commission tasked with designing reparations for victims of “mass criminalization.”...

    Utah police claim they prevented a potential shooting at a protest in Salt Lake City on Monday, according to multiple reports. Police and FBI agents were reportedly warned about threats being made by Yuri Silva, 27, against law enforcement through social media, according to authorities. Silva was arrested on the way to the protest, and four weapons, including an AK-47 and an Uzi, were recovered from inside the vehicle, police added. "With the severity of the threats, accompanied by the firearms located, we have every reason to believe that these arrests potentially saved lives," according to a release from West...

    Steven Bing, Peter Benjamin Lewis, George Soros It is late in the day, but there is still time to ask the Kerry-Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee about their financing sources. Equally important to ask is just what do these ridiculously rich and strange people expect to get for their millions of dollars. Let's look at three of Kerry's friends, probably responsible for at least $30 million in donations. Steven Bing: Our Victorian ancestors had the right words to describe Bing. He would have been known as "a cad and a bounder," while today he is dismissed as a...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry is using some dangerous rhetoric about the 2020 election. In a recent panel discussion for the Alliance of Democracies, he made the following statement: “If people don’t have adequate access to the ballot, I mean that’s the stuff on which revolutions are built. If you begin to deny people the capacity of your democracy to work, even the Founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, we have an inherent right to challenge that. And I’m worried that increasingly, people are disaffected.” Kerry’s comments should not be construed as typical Democrat rhetoric...

    S former top-ranking Obama official has revealed that the Democratic Party is prepared to support a “revolution” in the streets to force Donald Trump out of office if he wins re-election this fall. It’s a familiar face: Former Secretary of State John Kerry. He signaled that party leaders will support a violent “revolution,” if that’s what it takes.
