Antifa thugs in Portland

This is yet another story where there really isn’t too much for me to add, I just felt like posting up some stories of what Mayor Ted Wheeler is seemingly allowing Antifa to get away with. I feel as though the photos, videos, and pathetic responses from Portland politicians say far more than I could offer up…

Below is a short clip of journalist Andy Ngo being interviewed by Tucker Carlson after being beaten down by Antifa terrorists:

Take a gander at the tweet below and the video I’ve embedded right after…

Another laughable response from Mayor Wheeler; press X to doubt:

A few photos of those arrested. Is it just me, or are almost all of these Antifa types lily-white leftists?

Don’t try to find stories concerning Antifa on CNN though, at least not until Andy Ngo was so publicly pummeled:

Here are a few insightful stories into the recent events surrounding Portland and its Antifa criminal gangs:

Portland Tribune – Police seek clues on robbery, assault suspects at protest

The Oregonian – Bloody bedlam in downtown Portland puts police, mayor on defensive

Fox News – Journalist violently attacked by Antifa recalls ‘complete anarchy and lawlessness’

CNN – Three arrested and eight injured as Portland protests turn violent

But hey, Oregon Democrats have their focus on all of the right topics such as giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants:

Fox News – Oregon bill granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses heads to governor’s desk

This may or may not be a worthwhile question, but do Antifa thugs who are looking for a fight really not expect to receive a whirlwind at some point?

San Diego Women’s March 2019 Video Footage

The “Women’s March” occurred all across the United States just yesterday and I decided to check it out, take some video, and troll a few of the chants. I’m not even certain as to why this is called a “Women’s March” when it’s really just about leftists and Democratic Party policy views in general. I’ll have more to post up soon but here are some of the best clips. I didn’t realize that the “Socialist Feminism Movement” was a thing but now I know better. Isn’t it just wonderful to see these kind, caring progressives using their children (including infants) as agitprop devices? It just warms my heart…

Remember folks, it’s for the children:

Discussions with Bernie Sanders supporters…

Today’s post is dedicated to my complex, intelligent, factually-based, and well-thought out debates with the Sandroid Bernout Army. I’m just kidding folks, there wasn’t a whole lot of critical thinking going on in the mind of the Sandroids. Only one of the people I asked questions of was somewhat reasonable. You’ve heard me talk of the folks over at Economic Illiterates for Bernie Sanders 2016 before and this is where most of the discussions took place at.

To start this off here’s a CNN that some Sandroids decided to spam the aforementioned page with.

CNN-Under Sanders, income and jobs would soar, economist says

In the CNN article a single economist by the name of Gerald Freidman claims that under Bernie’s plan the U.S. economy would:

Friedman, who believes in democratic socialism like the candidate, found that if Sanders became president — and was able to push his plan through Congress — median household income would be $82,200 by 2026, far higher than the $59,300 projected by the Congressional Budget Office.

In addition, poverty would plummet to a record low 6%, as opposed to the CBO’s forecast of 13.9%. The U.S. economy would grow by 5.3% per year, instead of 2.1%, and the nation’s $1.3 trillion deficit would turn into a large surplus by Sanders’ second term.

I’m fairly certain that most of the Bernie supporters didn’t get past this part (or the title for that matter) since right after that portion of the article was the following:

Other economists, however, feel that Friedman’s analysis is overly optimistic, saying it would be difficult to achieve that level of economic prosperity. Last week, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget said Sanders’ plan to pay for health care would fall short by at least $3 trillion.”

I wonder where the $14.5 trillion is going to come from?

Sanders’ plan to pour $14.5 trillion into the economy — including spending on infrastructure and youth employment, increasing Social Security benefits, making college free and expanding health care and family leave — would juice GDP and productivity. (Friedman reduces the cost of Medicare-for-all to $10.7 trillion because he estimates the government would save $3.1 trillion by eliminating tax breaks for health insurance premiums.)

That’s right, tax increases on the wretched and vile “1%”, a 2.2% income tax on anyone making over $28,000 a year, a 6.2% payroll tax levied on the employer side, a tax on numerous financial transactions (purchase/sale of bonds, stocks, among many other things), and big increases on capital gains among numerous other fees. Brilliant, whatever could go wrong with this great plan?   (Hat-tip to We Are Capitalists)

Continuing on though:

‘Like the New Deal of the 1930s, Senator Sanders’ program is designed to do more than merely increase economic activity,’ Friedman writes. It will ‘promote a more just prosperity, broadly-based with a narrowing of economy inequality.’

FDR’s Treasury Secretary, Henry Morgenthau Jr. admitted that New Deal policies were a complete and utter failure that didn’t restore employment, restore prosperity, or even end the Great Depression.

Many presidential hopefuls say their economic programs would boost growth. Donald Trump and Jeb Bush justify their big tax cuts by saying GDP would grow at a 4% rate. But their plans have been panned by experts as overly optimistic.

We won’t get 4% growth per year in the economy, but Bernie and his Bernouts will find a way to make the U.S. economy consistently grow at 5.3% every year.

Friedman, however, argues that Sanders’ plan would be more stimulative because it is pouring money into the economy, as opposed to cutting taxes. Several of Sanders’ proposals — such as spending $1 trillion on infrastructure — will happen in the first few years of his administration.

The thinking goes: This enhanced government spending would increase demand on businesses, who would then hire more workers to meet their needs. The increase in employment will prompt people to buy more, leading other businesses to hire.

‘If there is more spending, people will have more to do,’ Friedman said, noting that the share of the population with jobs could be restored to its 1999 level of more than 64%, up from its current 59.6% rate.

So if we take more money from citizens just to give it back to them later the economy will grow? Brilliant…

At the end of the article we see the following:

Still, some experts question whether the effects would be that large.

Stimulating demand can boost a weak economy during a recession, but ‘it’s harder to accept as a long-run growth strategy,’ said William Gale, the former director of Brookings’ Economic Studies Program.

Also, it would be very difficult to achieve and maintain an economic growth rate of 5.3% per year after inflation. That target hasn’t been hit consistently since the 1960s, when technology was providing big advancements, the workforce was younger and there was increased demand for American products worldwide as other countries fully recovered from World War II.

‘The 5.3% number is a fantasy,’ said Jim Kessler, senior vice president at Third Way, a centrist think tank.

I feel like I’ve said something similar to this before about economic conditions in the 1950s and progressive ideas about the tax code.

Joe

Now that I’ve established what the Bernie trolls are citing as evidence of their ideas being correct, let’s look at how they respond to my arguments.

Here was the standard response I gave (i.e. copied and pasted) since the Sandroids kept citing the same article without reading it.

Sandroid Response

Some people never really responded…

Like I said at the beginning, there was one individual who was reasonable and not full of hate.

KaylaBubridge

Then there were the people who would disagree with what I had to say but offered no evidence of their own whilst calling me a liar. The logic that the Sandroids are using is simply amazing…

Concerning a discussion not related to the CNN article Mr. Joe Giansante provided some good entertainment. This postal worker appears to be going postal on me.

Mr. Tanous had some interesting logic as well; the “1%” are keeping Africa to perform sweatshop labor yet also stopping all economic development. I’m not certain how that works, especially when countries like South Africa are ruled by the socialists in the African National Congress and communist dictators rule Zimbabwe. What’s up with progressives and thinking that their opponents base everything off of Fox News?

Then there was a woman by the name of Sally Sallernio who makes some wondrous claims yet is also unable to back them up.

She actually argued that facts don’t matter…

That’s all for now about my conversations with the Sandroid Bernout Army. As always, don’t be scared to share this information with your fiends, I mean friends.

 

 

 

Feeling the Bern, part four

Good evening comrades, it’s time for another round of glorious pictorial propaganda to celebrate Citizen Senator Sanders. The fun never stops at Economic Illiterates for Bernie Sanders 2016. After Bernie is inaugurated next year he will usher in a new era of utopia not seen since the Great Depression. Total government spending will go up from approximately 35% of GDP to double or raise to even greater heights and fully snuff out the private sector. The conversion of the United States of America to the United Socialist States of America will be complete and the last vestiges of capitalism will be purged from society. We will truly live in a paradise. Forward!

Some losers are finally quitting

democratiowa republicaniowa

Is everyone else having a good night? Does anyone else wonder why Iowa is such a big deal? Why does it get so much attention during the Primary season? Those are questions for another day I suppose. At least that loser Martin O’Malley is finally dropping out of the Democratic nomination process. I suppose that he had enough of getting less than 1% in polls? Why did he run again?

Speaking of losers the carpenter that has never actually made anything and Shillary pretty much split the Democratic vote and will get the same number of delegates no matter who actually wins in the end. Who will win: the aging socialist or a former Secretary of State who can’t figure out e-mail and classified material?

Looking at Republican losers, Jeb Bush got about 3% and Huckabee got about 1% of the vote. At least Huckabee has the sense to drop out, though I don’t know why he tried in the first place. Jeb, do the world a favor and quit please. Perhaps Rand Paul will do a little better in other states?
