Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) policy director, Dan Riffle, tweeted support on Tuesday for Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) proposals to eliminate the private health insurance industry in America, which would cost 1.5 million American workers their jobs.
“Yes, we’re going to get rid of the entire health insurance industry. That’s a feature, not a bug,” Riffle tweeted, linking to a video of Harris saying just that during a CNN town hall on Monday.
In 2017, 1.5 million Americans were employed by the healthcare industry.
Cortez, or AOC as she likes to call herself, has already made it clear that she wants to natonalize the energy industry.
The hardcore leftist also wants the government to confiscate other peoples’ money, especially if they make over an amount she deems to be too much. Apparently, she has never considered the fact that these successful people will be less productive rather than give it to the AOC government of the United States of Venezuela.

I sat up with a start this morning, around 2:04.
It hit me, “Why are we all pretending this is politics…when it’s revolution?”
Their media, our media, their talk-show people, our talk show people, all have to pretend to be matter-of-fact about a situation that is probably the most significant series of events in American history since the southern states seceded in 1860…
…all because a solitary man was elected with a solitary purpose, but which had to be postponed until he could complete the new mission his election forced on him, to win a civil war and restore the Union.
Out of the mouths of babes Beto O’Rourke, three term congressman from Texas, near-miss (by some accounts) senator from Texas, and sure fire presidential candidate for 2020, (assuming there will be a contested one) let it slip this week the dirty little secret that every one but the most self-delusional on his side knows to be true:
“The Constitution of the United States is no longer a fit foundation for a modern government. It is no longer relevant.”
For what it’s worth, I first heard this same concept in the classroom in 1968, as a lecture by a political science professor, his argument being that the structure of our society and economy was too complex for a ham-fisted Congress to manage or, or for the general population to have anything more than a ceremonial say in it.
He was of course echoing the thoughts of Wilsonian Progressivism from around 1910, and slashed me a letter grade for disagreeing with him on the final exam.
In other words, all the elements of disavowing the Rights of Man on the one hand, and keeping academic students in line on the other, were fully in place in the academy 50 years ago. Had I wanted to go on to pursue a masters and PhD, he would have insured I couldn’t. I’d been tagged[…]

From an interesting 50-minute discussion between Tucker Carlson and Ben Shapiro last month, while discussing common backgrounds in California, Carlson made the offhand comment, “We’re both elites”.
Well, as a matter of fact, they are. Only do they know what kind?….for there are several types of elites in a typical community; social, political, economic, even moral and educational.
And by whose appointment? That’s the question that separates America from all the organized societies and governments through history.
You see, unless a large group of people inside a particular society designates or commonly accepts one to be one its “elites” he or she really isn’t. The self-proclaimed “elite” is really an “elitist” which most people don’t want to go around bragging about, for it’s just a polite way of calling oneself a wannabe, and “Dig me, so you Come on down and buy whatever it is I’m selling.”
Are we seeing a lot of those days.
A free people creates its own elites. We’ve acquired our own land, started our own businesses, and written our own histories, most of them found in those county records and newspapers, still the preferred and most believed media in America[…]

It is CALIFORNIA! What ELSE can, did or is going WRONG?

A new report revealed that incompetent state regulators in The California Public Utilities Commission failed to implement plans required by state law that could have prevented the devastating California wildfires.
Senate Bill 1028 required the three big California power companies, San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas & Electric, to provide detailed strategies for reducing fire threats, according to The San Diego Tribune.
The California Public Utilities Commission was supposed to review the filings, make comments, and follow up to ensure they followed the plans. They NEVER DID!
They did NOT issue directives to the power companies, and it’s been more than two years since the law was passed.
A spokesman for Edison, one of the power companies, blamed the regulators[…]
For the answer to “what else can go wrong,” see my post over at Grumpy Opinions entitled, “California Proposing to Tax Text Messages, Retroactive 5 Years.” You can’t make this stuff up.
They say it’s official, that Kyrsten Sinema is Arizona’s new senator-elect, in the US Senate until 2024.
Think about it.
In an election year when this election had all the smell and taste of a heist-in-the-making, as I’d been warning for several months, August thru last week, it only seemed natural to assume that Democratic Party skullduggery would be involved.
Florida was a no-brainer, since, even under GOP election control, the same old mobsters are still controlling voter-counting in Florida’s south side like Capone did the whiskey business in Chicago’s South Side.
But there’s also Georgia, Montana, Wisconsin, and even several shoulda-been-winners in Virginia are waking up to find anomalies in the vote count, some of only a few thousand votes, that might have kept their district red.
So the Mob connection is still my theory about Arizona.
But conservative friends in Arizona argue to the contrary. Rush Limbaugh theorizes that Sinema won because conservatives, whose candidate, Dr Kelli Ward, lost to the moderate Martha McSally in the primary, just decided to not vote the “Senate” part of the ballot, so that every other GOP statewide candidate recieved approximately 260,000 more votes than McSally, and enough to beat Sinema. I’m told that over 350,000 in Maricopa County alone, a Republican stronghold, vote for the GOP governor, but were silent on the Senate race.
Hard to believe, but yes, plausible. Vanity and teat-fittery the likely culprits. If true[…]
