WHY WOULD YOU BELIEVE A COMMUNIST TRYING TO DESTROY YOUR COUNTRY?

Blm-js

Perhaps a better question, why would you allow a communist to indoctrinate your children from a position of power at a taxpayer-supported educational institution?

Dr. Melina Abdullah, Director of BLM Grassroots and Co-Founder of BLM Los Angeles, regarding the ongoing trial of Jussie Smollett…

As abolitionists, we approach situations of injustice with love and align ourselves with our community. Because we got us. So let’s be clear: we love everybody in our community. It’s not about a trial or a verdict decided in a white supremacist charade, it’s about how we treat our community when corrupt systems are working to devalue their lives.

In our commitment to abolition, we can never believe police, especially the Chicago Police Department (CPD) over Jussie Smollett, a Black man who has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom. While policing at-large is an irredeemable institution, CPD is notorious for its long and deep history of corruption, racism, and brutality. From the murders of Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, to the Burge tortures, to the murder of Laquan McDonald and subsequent cover-up, to the hundreds of others killed by Chicago police over the years and the thousands who survived abuse, Chicago police consistently demonstrate that they are among the worst of the worst. Police lie and Chicago police lie especially. <Source>

[OCS: I thought this trial was about a fake race hoax perpetrated by a black, gay actor who testified to masturbating one of his attackers in a gay bath house – not the Chicago Police who diligently investigated this matter in a progressive communist community that wanted very much to believe and exploit this hoax.]

Abdullah is a tenured professor in the Department of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles,  a co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter, and an America-hating communist.

Who are the real victims?

YOU! The people who had their emotions falsely manipulated and their attention distracted from the urgent matters of the day. The Black community that will now be viewed with greater suspicion. The GLBTQ community that will now be viewed with greater suspicion. And the real victims of hate crimes who may not be believed by the authorities.

Bottom line…

I guess if you are stupid enough to believe that two Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats were wandering around Chicago in sub-zero weather looking for a random black man at 2 a.m., then you are likely to believe anything.

As a consequence of the trial where Jussie Smollett was convicted of five felony charges associated with perpetuating a racial hoax that engulfed the country and produced comments of support comments from President Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, media talking heads, and celebrities willing to suspend belief in the facts, he should also be tried for felony perjury and false testimony.

Another distraction from the progressive communist democrats who are willing to highlight this bogus bullshit while continuing to ignore the daily slaughter of men, women, and children in the inner cities. Where are the BLM marchers highlighting their fellow blacks as they decimate their community with drugs and death? 

We are so screwed.

VIVEK MURTHY: MEDIOCRE MORON OF THE MONTH

What do all these individuals have in common?

  • Kamala Harris, the United States Vice President
  • Merrick Garland, United States Attorney General
  • Anthony Blinken, United States Secretary of State
  • Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to the President
  • General Mark Miley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
  • Vivek Murthy, United States Surgeon General

In the words of former President Donald Trump, they are all fucking idiots, mediocrities devoid of common sense, and political hacks.

The latest political idiocy comes from Vivek Murthy…

Murthy

Protecting Youth Mental Health: The U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory

Introduction from the Surgeon General

We know that mental health is shaped by many factors, from our genes and brain chemistry to our relationships with family and friends, neighborhood conditions, and larger social forces and policies.

[OCS: The same could be said about criminality.]

We also know that, too often, young people are bombarded with messages through the media and popular culture that erode their sense of self-worth—telling them they are not good looking enough, popular enough, smart enough, or rich enough.

[OCS: This is the standardized message of advertisers selling sex, popularity, and the lazy individual’s way to achievement and notoriety. This is also the message of the progressive communist democrats who are infantilizing minorities and selling victimhood.]

That comes as progress on legitimate, and distressing, issues like climate change, income inequality, racial injustice, the opioid epidemic, and gun violence feels too slow.

[OCS: In this single sentence Vivek Murthy’s political hackery is on display. Not only are these the talking points of the progressive communist democrats, but they are sensationalized and catastrophized by the progressive propagandists in the media. However dire the outlook, it pales when measured against an individual’s acceptance and popularity in a valued peer group. One might argue that mental illness, like Asperger’s might be an underlying cause, but few mention the social isolation induced by the psychological tricks played on the users of social media and gaming programs.

The absence of followers, likes, and the unattainable often-faux lifestyle of  social media “influencers” greatly outweighs concerns over social justice and climate change. I would suggest that many individuals are not committed ideologues, but join a cause seeking a feeling of belonging, recognition, and in most cases friendships. In essence, joining a Greek fraternity or sorority for individuals who could never enter the upstairs of a frat house.

If gun violence is a public health matter, as the progressive communist democrats declare, where are Murthy and his troops fighting drug-dispensing gangs and gun-related violence in the inner cities of this nation?]

And while technology platforms have improved our lives in important ways, increasing our ability to build new communities, deliver resources, and access information, we know that, for many people, they can also have adverse effects. When not deployed responsibly and safely, these tools can pit us against each other, reinforce negative behaviors like bullying and exclusion, and undermine the safe and supportive environments young people need and deserve.

[OCS: But isn’t that the prime objective of the progressive democrat party – to divide the masses into classes of victims that turn to the democrats to address their grievances in return for their political support? A mass coalition believing that “this time it will be different and the Democrats will improve our lives and community?” A fairy tale belied by crooked politicians siphoning off taxpayers funds to benefit themselves and their special interest friends?

And that this is part of the problem with today’s youth, the creation of delicate snowflakes instead of self-reliant, resilient, and capable individuals. Treating boys as imperfect examples of obedient little girls?]

All of that was true even before the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically altered young peoples’ experiences at home, at school, and in the community. The pandemic era’s unfathomable number of deaths, pervasive sense of fear, economic instability, and forced physical distancing from loved ones, friends, and communities have exacerbated the unprecedented stresses young people already faced.

[OCS: In the charade of Fauci and “follow the science,” weren't these issues exacerbated by the progressive communist democrat’s to gain political control over the nation? Following former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s dictum to never let a crisis go to waste?

Our obligation to act is not just medical—it’s moral. I believe that, coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have an unprecedented opportunity as a country to rebuild in a way that refocuses our identity and common values, puts people first, and strengthens our connections to each other. instead of people programs.

[OCS: There is no morality in the Democrat Party. Witness the chaos and confusion they have caused around the nation and the globe with their politics. Refusing to call out genocidal racists who are attempting to vilify and marginalize white males in America. Leaving California schoolchildren behind enemy lines as the bailed out of Afghanistan with unvetted random individuals in planes to improve Administration optics.

The Democrats lack core American values. Biden’s Build Back Better is synonymous with destroy America from within.]


If we seize this moment, step up for our children and their families in their moment of need, and lead with inclusion, kindness, and respect, we can lay the foundation for a healthier, more resilient, and more fulfilled nation.

[OCS: I am tired of hearing “it’s for the children,” when it is clearly for the progressive communist democrats and their toxic ideology.]

Environmental factors can range from exposure to alcohol or drugs during pregnancy, to birth complications, to discrimination and racism, to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect, exposure to community violence, and living in under-resourced or racially segregated neighborhoods.

[OCS: Notice that most of the solutions to depression and mental illness seems to be bigger government, higher taxes, and progressive policies?]

Bottom line…

The progressives have politicized public health, and our health leadership cannot be trusted other than to spout progressive communist democrat nonsense. I wonder if this schmuck will get around to addressing the harm masks are causing young children as they can’t learn to interpret facial expressions correctly?

ENERGY COSTS ARE SKYROCKETING UNDER THE DEMOCRATS AND ABOUT TO GET MUCH WORSE

A for-profit utility has one goal: to generate a sufficient profit to satisfy their lenders and ensure shareholder satisfaction and executive bonuses.

Being a near-monopoly, customer benefits and satisfaction are often secondary. Therefore, utility executives rarely invest in repairing, replacing, or building out their physical plant unless the need is urgent. Moreover, these same utility executives engage lobbyists to corrupt public officials and unelected bureaucrats to reinforce their monopoly and produce legislation allowing them to charge higher rates and delay the implementation of capital investments.

The ratepayer is screwed...

Here in Southern California, utility executives decided to increase the productivity of a nuclear plant by ordering the design and fabrication of a super-sized heat exchanger with more internal tubes. Unfortunately, the sonic resonance of the heat exchanger caused the tubes to rub together and leak radioactive water. The project was abandoned, and the ratepayers are on the hook for a $4.1 billion twenty-year decommissioning project -- including continued on-site storage of radioactive materials.
Even worse, the progressive communist democrats are applauding as the plant's reliable, clean energy output will slowly be replaced by unreliable, high-cost  "green power."

Green-energy-suck-hole

Today's rant...

Now the same utility wants to charge me more -- ostensibly to re-educate me in restricting my power usage and to penalize any aberrant behavior. Similar to congestion pricing on toll roads.

Why am I being switched to another rate plan?

As part of a statewide initiative to use more clean renewable power—like solar and wind—and simplify rates, customers on Tiered rate plans will be switched to a TOU (Time of Use) rate plan now through May 2022.

With a TOU rate plan you are in control. Take advantage of lower electricity prices in the morning, afternoon, and late at night. The more you can shift your energy usage to when rates are lower, the more you’ll save.

[OCS: Yes, you are in control. You can choose to be charged artificially high rates for subsidized green energy, just as you can choose to alter your lifestyle to accommodate a progressive communist democrat agenda. All the while the politicians and the lobbyists are wining, dining, and pocket-lining.]

TOU rate plans are based on when and how much energy you use. That’s because TOU rates are lower during the day, when we can tap into less expensive renewable energy sources like solar and wind.

If you can take advantage of these time periods when rates are lower (“off-peak” hours), you can avoid the rates when energy is in higher demand and renewable energy sources are less available.

Reducing the amount of energy you use during your rate plan’s “peak” hours—either from 4 to 9 p.m. or 5 to 8 p.m. on weekdays—will help you save more each month.

The utility's justification for implementing this rate increase is that the cost to deliver power has increased dramatically since solar and wind power have boomed under government-mandated usage. Accordingly, the utility has shifted its higher charges to the times where green energy becomes unreliable or non-existent and conventional power generation is required.

Bottom line…

If you are like most families who run their air conditioner when you get home from work, cook on an electric stove, watch TV after dinner, run the dishwasher, and wash dirty clothes in the early evening -- prepare to pay more.

Ask yourself, if green energy were so cost-effective, reliable, and beneficial, why must the government subsidize it?  The truth is that it is none of those things, and investors would crucify utility executives if they allocated funding to these projects.

You can bet this will increase utility revenue at ratepayer expense -- and once again, let them delay capital improvements.

We are so screwed if you believe that the PUC (Public Utility Commission – filled with political appointees) -- acts on behalf of the consumer.

The sad truth is that when the Sun goes down, the utilities can't generate enough power to meet demand and don't want to fire up gas-fired plants. They would rather hide the sad facts behind environmental programs and rate increases.
