    Some people are born to be the pocket…some are born to be the pocket pet. Unfortunately people like George Soros are the former and the majority of our political class the latter.And that reminds me of a song: Willie Nelson, Everywhere I Go I'll take you with me everywhere I go I'll put you in my pocket, who will know? Right next to my heart at every show I'll take you with me everywhere I goNo matter where our trails will finally wind Our paths will just keep crossing, yours and mine Until then, and in my pocket you must...
  • Sanders open to supporting primary challengers against Manchin and Sinema [Sun rises in the east]

    “Anybody who believes in American democracy has got to vote to enable us to go forward with 50 votes to suspend the filibuster, at least on this vote,” he [Sanders] said. “I hope we have 50 votes. If we don’t, they’re going to have to go home and explain to their constituents.” During negotiations over the Build Back Better Act, Sanders repeatedly voiced frustration with Manchin’s opposition to expanding Medicare benefits and Sinema’s reluctance to give Medicare wide-ranging power to negotiate lower prescription drug prices. Sinema eventually signed off on a scaled-down proposal to make prescription medications more affordable.

    The New Zealand government has announced that patients admitted to the hospital for COVID-19 can be killed via euthanasia, according to Scoop.In November, anti-euthanasia group #DefendNZ asked the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) questions about the practice of the nation’s End of Life Choice Act (EOLC Act). One of these questions was, “Could a patient who is severely hospitalised with Covid-19 potentially be eligible for assisted suicide or euthanasia under the Act if a health practitioner viewed their prognosis as less than 6 months?”The EOLC Act states that a person who has a “terminal illness that is likely to...

  • An Evil Edict from Pope Francis

    Christian Order ^ | July 22, 2021 | BISHOP ROB MUTSAERTS
    An Evil Edict from Pope FrancisBISHOP ROB MUTSAERTS Auxiliary Bishop of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands Pope Francis promotes synodality: everyone should be able to talk, everyone should be heard. This was hardly the case with his recently published motu proprio Traditionis Custodes, an ukase [imperial edict] that must put an immediate termination on the traditional Latin Mass. In so doing, Francis puts a big bold line through Summorum Pontificum, Pope Benedict’s motu proprio that gave ample scope to the old Mass.The fact that Francis here uses the word of power without any consultation indicates that he is losing authority. This was...

    Pope Francis appeared to take a shot at Hungary on Wednesday, insisting “no country can exempt itself” from the obligation to take in migrants. On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán rejected a ruling by the European Union’s (EU) Court of Justice that his government had “failed to fulfil its obligations” to relax its immigration laws. “We will maintain the existing regime, even if the European court ordered us to change it,” Orbán said Tuesday in his end-of-year news conference. “The reality is that we have to stop the migrants at the borders,” he declared. “This can be solved by...

    Maryland’s socialist Bread and Roses Party is disbanding, and its founder, Jerome Segal, is launching a run for governor as a Democrat.Segal said the Bread and Roses Party’s central committee voted to disband and submitted the necessary paperwork to state elections officials this week, ending the group’s brief run as a recognized political party in Maryland. . . .“The Democratic Party has moved so far to the left that many things we argued for at the beginning that were viewed as pie-eyed utopianism … now are mainstream Democratic Party positions,” Segal said. “So much more can be done inside the...

    Democratic California political leaders have remained silent on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comment appearing to doubt the existence of smash-and-grab robberies. "We have to talk about specifics because, for example, we’re actually seeing a lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out," Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Times in an interview last week. "I believe it’s a Walgreens in California cited it, but the data didn’t back it up." Fox News reached out to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s press team, Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s communication’s director, Sen. Alex Padilla’s press secretary, as well as Mayor London Breed’s and Mayor...

    Voters in Seattle’s third city council district are turning out early to cast their ballots in this month’s special election, which will determine whether Kshama Sawant, one of Seattle’s most polarizing elected officials, will remain in office. With just five days left before polls close on Tuesday, roughly 33% of voters have returned their ballot, according to King County election data. On Oct. 29 - five days before last month’s general election - roughly 20% of District 3 voters had returned their ballots. That means about 10,000 more people have voted now than at this time during the last election....

    For the first session on Saturday, John Peterson, chief editor of Socialist Revolution magazine, spoke on the elections and how the working class was offered no real choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Biden was Wall Street’s preferred candidate. Democrats have already begun an offensive against the left wing of the party, against AOC and “the Squad.” Trump will continue to have a strong hold on the Republican Party through his newly announced super PAC, and “Trumpism” is far from finished. His base includes millions of angry and distressed workers, because there’s no working class alternative to the big...

    Far-left miscreant Thomas Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, North Dakota, pleaded guilty to destruction of government property last April. Starks brought an ax to Sen. John Hoeven’s office in Fargo on December 21, 2020, and smashed an intercom and glass door. The attack was captured on video. Federal guidelines suggested Starks should spend 10–16 months in the hoosegow, but because he is a protected member of Antifa, he was sentenced to mere probation and ordered to pay $2,784 in restitution. Keep in mind that there are people still in solitary confinement for taking non-violent selfies in the Capitol on January...

    Seattle Times ^ | 11/14/21 | The Seattle Times editorial board
    Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant has long been an outspoken voice for socialist ideals with an utter disregard for the city’s business community. She has also inserted rudeness, bullying and shoddy ethics into City Hall, which has done profound disservice to her District 3 constituency and the city. Voters should hold Sawant accountable for transgressions against civil governance and remove her from office. Ballots for a Dec. 7 recall election will start arriving in District 3 mailboxes this week, asking whether voters should remove Sawant from the council seat she has held since 2014. Voters should resoundingly vote yes. Sawant spent...

    Unfortunately, election season is not completely over. On Dec 7, voters in District 3 - which includes Capitol Hill, the Central District, Madison Park, Leschi, Madrona, and parts of surrounding neighborhoods - will decide whether to keep or boot the council’s lone socialist, Kshama Sawant. Here's everything you need to know: When is the recall happening? King County Elections will mail out ballots for the recall on November 17. Expect ballots to hit mailboxes November 19, and go apesh-- if they don’t arrive by November 22. (That is, check to make sure you're registered in the district and/or ask the...
  • AOC insists the Democrats' 'woke problem' is made up by Republicans and critics wanting party to run away from racial justice and voting rights

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats' so-called 'woke problem' was 'made up' to try and push the left away from fighting for racial injustice and election reform, which she claims could help them win. 'One dangerous aspect of thinking there's a 'woke problem' is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights,' the New York representative tweeted Sunday evening. She added: 'Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses.' Republicans and establishment Democrats claimed that the party's embracing a more progressive agenda and...

    The progressives blinked. For months, the feisty left flank of the House Democratic Caucus insisted it would not provide the votes to pass President Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package until the Senate first approved the rest of the president’s economic agenda. **SNIP** Then the off-year voters had their say. Three days after Republicans swept Democrats in Virginia and nearly toppled them in New Jersey, the progressives released the legislative hostage they had held captive for three months and helped pass the bipartisan infrastructure package. Fearing a total collapse of the Democratic agenda - and anticipating that they would...

    The incumbent Democratic mayor of Buffalo, running as a write-in candidate, declared victory Tuesday night as he held a nearly 20-point lead over his Democratic Party opponent. India Walton, a socialist backed by many high-profile progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, refused to concede to Mayor Byron Brown in the highly publicized contest until her campaign sees “all the votes,” her spokesman Jesse Myerson told The Post via text. Brown, 63, who lost to Walton in the June Democratic primary, claimed what would be a stunning victory in a speech to supporters from his campaign headquarters shortly after 11 p.m. “Today’s election,...

    Incumbent write-in candidate Byron Brown, a Democrat, leads his party’s socialist nominee India Walton by 17 points in the hotly contested Buffalo mayor’s race that is a microcosm of the nationwide ideological rift in the Democratic Party, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Walton stunned the political world by defeating four-term incumbent Brown in a low-turnout June Democratic primary — the biggest upset since fellow Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez toppled ex-Congressman and Queens Democratic Party leader Joe Crowley in the 2018 primary. AOC stumped on the campaign trail with Walton last weekend.
