September, 2018, Part 5, Political Class Insanity: Idiotic Statements, Lies, and Threats From Politicians Across the Country

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let’s get started:

1) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a Democratic candidate for Congress in a NYC Congressional district. She has been a gaffe and idiocy machine of quotes since becoming a candidate. Rather than review all of her stupid quotes and positions, just type in her name in the search box above to get a listing of past blog posts that went over her insanity.

But she is not done, she is becoming the Nancy Pelosi quote machine that makes one wonder: is she really that out of touch with reality:
  • Ocasio-Cortez recently proclaimed that, “I got elected.” No, not really. You won your party’s primary nomination to be a candidate but the election is not until November in case your staff has not told you. And she may not get elected then either since the incumbent Democrat she upset in the primaries, Joe Crowley, is running as an independent candidate and currently leads her in some opinion polls. 
  • Makes you wonder how someone who wants to be in Congress does not understand how the election process works.
  • She recently claimed that, “ICE is sexually assaulting women,” a statement that infers that everyone working for ICE is assaulting women, a highly unlikely situation.
  • But even worse, she could not provide any proof that ANYONE in ICE was sexually assaulting women, inciting hate and misinformation to the worst degree possible.
  • As any reader of this blog knows, the reality of manmade global warming is a myth, we have provided hundreds of statistics, facts, research, and scientists that prove that manmade global warming is a myth but that did not stop her from claiming that “Americans are dying from global warming.”
  • As we have shown any number of times that any actual global warming that occurred naturally has resulted in milder storms, fewer wildfires, higher crop yields, etc., factors that have all made humanity’s plight easier to handle.
The gaffe mouth that keeps on giving. Unfortunately, this gaffe generator might actually end up in Congress where her lack of facts, knowledge, and sanity will allow her to vote on legislation that affects all of us.

2) Speaking of lying, let’s move on to the Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. If you have been following the hearings you know that a handful of Democratic Senators have been absolute horse’s rear ends in their hysterics and childish posturing. According to the Conservative Daily Post, California Senator Dianne Feinstein was leading that caravan of lies:
  • During the hearings, Feinstein related in a past job she had experiences sentencing women to jail for getting an abortion in California at a time when abortion was illegal in that state.
  • According to Feinstein’s words she as an appointee on the governor’s “term setting and paroling authority” for women who had been convicted of felonies.
  • She said that she sentenced women who had committed abortions with state prison time or approving them for parole.
  • Apparently she made the same claim during the hearings to approve Jeff Sessions for attorney general: “she said that during the 1960s, she “sentenced women in California” after they were convicted of felony abortion. She even claimed that she sentenced them to a maximum of ten years.”
The problem with all of this posturing is that Feinstein has never been a lawyer or a judge. Thus, she never “sentenced” anyone to prison for having an abortion. She never even attained a law degree. She only sat on a parole board to determine if someone was eligible for parole.

The lies of Feinstein get even worse if Clarke D. Forsythe, the senior legal counsel for Americans United For Life, is to be believed. According to the article, he claims that no one was EVER prosecuted in California for having an abortion prior to it being made legal. So, she never sentenced anyone for having an abortion since no one was ever prosecuted for having an abortion. Unbelievable falsehoods.

3) The immigration enforcement people at ICE are charged with carrying out the immigration laws of the land as legislated by Congress. Apparently, though, that simple process is not well understood by a member of Congress who has set a very dangerous precedent via his latest idiotic and vindictive words:
  • Unbelievably, Congressman Ruben Gallego recently threatened ICE agents for doing their jobs, as mandated by Congress.
  • Specifically, he stated that those that actually do their job for ICE, deporting illegal immigrants, should fear for their safety, that they would “not be safe” if somehow Democrats took over the government.
  • He implied that these brave immigration enforcement agents could not use the excuse that they were doing their jobs if Democrats in Congress decided to come after them, again, for doing their job.
  • His exact words were: “If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned. When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President's administration.”
How far down the rabbit hole of insanity have we fallen when a sitting member of Congress threatens a government employee for doing the job that Congress authorized? Trump has not authorized illegal acts, he is executing the laws of the land, deporting illegal immigrants for violating Congressionally mandated laws.

Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera nailed it when he rebutted rebuked Gallego, calling his behavior “reckless and irresponsible: “Now we’re telling cops that if you enforce the law you’re going to be in trouble sometime down the road when the worm turns? I just think that that is a reckless and irresponsible statement. I back the ICE officers. I detest roundup and removal of average working undocumented immigrants. I think it’s absolutely unnecessary … but you don’t threaten the cops. You don’t threaten the thin blue line. That what separates civilization from anarchy.”

That will do it for today’s insanity: a confused Congressman telling government officials not to enforce existing laws that Congress passed, a California Senator with an over inflated opinion of her accomplishments or who is an outright liar, and the idiocy of Ocasio-Cortez’s statements keep oncoming, More insanity to follow.
