By all accounts, Republican Senator Tim Scott, the Black conservative senator from South Carolina, is a nice guy. And therein lies the problem. When faced with progressive communist democrats who want to destroy America from within, can we demonstrate weakness by moderating our rhetoric and policies, both foreign and domestic?

I say HELL NO!'

One needs only see how Republicans like George Bush, Mitt Romney, and Lindsey Graham had fared when they stepped over the line to negotiate with radical Democrats whose party had been deeply infiltrated by communists.

The influence of radical left-leaning ideologies took root within the present generation of Democrat leaders in the 1960s and 1970s when their social movements advocating for civil rights, anti-war protests, and social justice issues gained momentum. Today, those who minimize this malignant influence that is a clear and present danger to America claim that it is essential to distinguish between left-wing ideologies, which may include socialism or social democracy, and actual communism.

This is bullshit, as the endpoint of all leftist ideologies is authoritarian fascism or communism, whereas the endpoint of capitalism is more capitalism. No matter how Democrats identify themselves, liberals, progressives, or centrists, they support an un-American agenda doing significant damage to the United States.

Why the progressive communist democrats are winning the battle…

  1. They have no shame. With progressive communist democrats, it is never about hypocrisy but hierarchy and power.

  2. They win when they appear to lose, always moving forward with their agenda. Primarily using the "salami technique," named after eating a large salami one thin slice at a time, where a larger goal is achieved through a series of small, incremental steps. Note their practice of gradually implementing their despicable communist agenda by dividing it into smaller, less controversial parts. Each part is presented individually and is more likely to be accepted or tolerated by the public and political opposition. By doing so, the larger distasteful objective can be achieved without attracting significant resistance or attention.

  3. They have no problem switching sides to implement their agenda from within the opposition. This is why you can find progressive communist democrats within the Republican Party but find no Republicans in the Democrat Party.

  4. They understand power and are unafraid to use it regardless of how it appears to bystanders. Blackmail, the threat of investigation and prosecution, or even financial or sexual set-ups are not beyond their dirty tricks. If you doubt this, consider the entirety of Hilary Clinton’s dirty “Russia-Russia” campaign against Donald Trump to see each of these techniques playing out in full public view.

  5. They understand the intersection of perception and power and have invested time, effort, and money to capture the legacy and social media. Media that promotes narrative over news, censors objective facts and cancels dissident voices.

Looking at the debt ceiling negotiations…

Consider the debt ceiling and the objective fact that the United States can service our debt, pay for entitlements, and fund the military out of current revenue.

The sticking point is that Congress must prioritize the remaining expenditures and eliminate non-productive agencies, programs, and projects. Many of which feed the special interests in the Congressman’s District or Senator’s State – possibly imperiling their reelection.

Freedom Caucus Says McCarthy Got Rolled on the Debt Ceiling and the Evidence Indicates They Are Right

Saturday night, President Joe Biden’s representative and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy agreed in principle on increasing the US debt ceiling by some $4 trillion over two years. This averted another “default crisis” that would have allegedly caused all kinds of nasty things to happen.

Speaker McCarthy was on Fox News Sunday this morning explaining the deal. The official line is that in return for a two-year debt ceiling increase, spending will be held flat in FY2024 and reduced in 2025.

The deal scraps $131 billion in cuts to return bureaucracy to pre-COVID levels in favor of keeping spending at the 2023 Omnibus spending bill.

[OCS: Semantics: lowering the budget does not restrain profligate or unwise spending.]

Work requirements are abandoned for Medicaid. Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act,” which Goldman Sachs says costs $1.2 trillion, is retained.

[OCS: The "Inflation Reduction Act" moniker is a blatant lie. Increased spending aggravates inflation.]

The REINS Act is abandoned. Biden’s unlawful student loan bailout is punted back to the courts.

[OCS: With the Courts slow-walking the issue while a single progressive communist democrat Federal Judge green-lights the plan.]

The IRS keeps its 87,000 new agents. You’ll hear about the $2 billion cut from the IRS this year, but that is from their proposed budget increase. It doesn’t cut that agency.

[OCS: Armed agents with new surveillance techniques and hidden powers. Another agency weaponized against the people by a corrupt regime.]

The only bright light is that the deal claws back $29 billion in unspent COVID-19 baksheesh.

[OCS: This is a joke. The money was not in one of the regime’s many slush funds. Remember, this is a budgeted but unallocated amount, so the number is meaningless.]

Also, note that the two-year deal takes the debt ceiling off the table during an election year.

[OCS: Both parties agree – hide the egregious spending from the public during an election year when pre-election promises have real political consequences no matter who is elected.]

This is not the “Limit, Save, Grow” plan sold to the House GOP. This is little short of a wholesale capitulation to Biden and a forfeiture of McCarthy’s duty to the people who gave him a house majority.

Biden gets to keep all of his COVID spending as a budget baseline. He gets to use our money to rescue his supporters from the stupid college loan decisions they made. More than that, there is no guarantee that Biden will keep any of his promises about reducing spending next year, and with a debt ceiling already locked in, the GOP has zero leverage. So we get a “deal.” <Source>

[OCS: We would have been better off if McCarthy sat in the corner and did nothing!]

Bottom line…

Yes, we should reform our corrupt government agencies, but it should start with our corrupt political party apparatus and apparatchiks.

We are so screwed.
