Oh, sure, it’s not popular to “tell it like it is” anymore. Why, the right to tell America how to think is reserved for the hyper-opinionated minions of the corporate media and their left-wing parroting shills.
Still, in a few places, like here in the Outback of East Texas, there is still an ability to look at the Big Picture as though it’s nothing more (or less) than a jig-saw. Care to play “Spot the Commies” with us?
So let’s run through how the Obama/Clinton “Government in Exile” is doing in their promotion of AmRev2 Lite, shall we?
Let’s start at Berkeley North – also known as the campus of Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. (I first noticed that people in the Olympia area had begun to lose their minds on July 13, 2013…)
The school proclaims itself to be “Evergreen is a progressive, public liberal arts and sciences college located in Olympia…”
Progressive? Is this the new buzz for reverse racism?
Liberal? Oh, that just means paying students may not get their money’s worth due to closures like the one Thursday and today.
For a long time this left-of-Lenin leaning school had a Day of Absence during which minority students would take a day off school to attend “programs off campus.” For many, just a “skip day.”
This year, the revolutionaries decided to up their game by targeting a biology professor who objected to the Day of Absence event. They want him fired. (Notice how his rights and wanting to deliver an education got trampled? No such accountability for the left, though.)
What happened next was right out of the Alinsky playbook: The school received a “credible threat” so classes were shut down Thursday.
And this morning? From the school’s website:
So we did:
“Suspended operations” means no classes [Friday]. Evergreen staff are present to provide campus services to resident students and ensure their safety. Law enforcement is present on campus at all hours.
A determination on when to fully re-open campus will be made as soon as possible.
Around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning Evergreen officials were notified that TCOMM 911 had received a call from an individual claiming to be armed and en route to Evergreen’s Olympia campus. The call was made from an unknown telephone number to a regular business line.
Upon notification from TCOMM 911, and on the advice of law enforcement, President George Bridges made the cautionary decision to close campus. Evergreen students, staff, and faculty members were notified of the closure via an emergency text system, mass email, and a campus-wide speaker system.
Officers from the Washington State Patrol, Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, and Olympia Police Department responded and were stationed throughout campus and nearby thoroughfares while Evergreen students, staff, and faculty departed campus, and while parents collected children at the college day-care center.
Law enforcement teams searched campus buildings to ensure they were secure. They determined that no one was actively posing a threat.
Evergreen Police Services is in contact with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is pursuing any information that might affect the safety of our campus.
Forgetting true equality, the left is now selling guilt. And it seems from here that the school is pandering to ’em.
Jot this down as data point #1.
Climate Revolutionaries, Too
Now, let’s roll with the Trump administration decision to back out of the Paris “Climate” Accord which was negotiated by the Obamanation as a ramp-in to a Global Climate Tax, to further punish the United States for being, well, the United States. And to feather the next of the carbon credit scammers and such.
What the left-wing revisionist media fails to mention is that while Barack Obama was all-in on his climate deal – which would take billions and shovel it into an unaccountable “climate fund” where who knows what that money would do – the whole thing was NEVER RATIFIED as a Treaty because – as President Trump noted in his remarks on Thursday – it was a spectacularly bad deal.
The left is selling this hornswoggle as a good dead because it helps them monetize their crooked schemes. Remember, when Global Warming was shown to be a data-jiggered scam, the left pivoted to a guilt trip and moved to “climate change.”
Since backing out of the non-Treaty, the left has gone so far off-the-hook that Grabien News today has a list of the 14 dumbest reactions to Trump’s decision.
My favorite (idiotic) reaction came from Philly’ mayor: “Mayor Kenney says Philly will honor Paris climate accord after U.S. pulls out.”
So who is Jim Kenney? If you Wiki it: “James Francis “Jim” Kenney (born August 7, 1958) is an American Democratic politician…” Say no more! Got it – he’s an Obamite.
Empty assertion? George off his meds? No, since “President Obama endorses Jim Kenney for Philly mayor” was a real 2015 headline.
It isn’t like Kenney is alone, however. The whole globalist left is up in arms today: “‘F*** you!’ Donald Trump blasted in German media after pulling out of Paris climate deal.” That goes a bit far…blasted by the German leftists would maybe be closer to it. Still…let’s continue the review:
Say, here’s another loon for you: “Gore: Syrian Civil War Caused By Climate Change.” The serial disasters of Clinton as SecState escape someone’s notice?
As a clear-headed UrbanSurvival reader noticed the other day “Yes, climate has been changing for millions of years.” Don’t mention it to Al.
The worrywarts miss a critical point> We don’t really need to worry in the slightest about “climate change” baking the world because if it does get too hot, we can simply pick a nuclear war and Poof! End of problem. We would be in nuclear winter for centuries. That’d fix “climate change” huh?
Shouldn’t be a problem to go there, either, since we are now ranked the 114th most peaceful nation on Earth. Our thanks to Ferguson, Baltimore, and Obama’s fine legacy of improved racial harmony. OH, and the unifying media coverage that brings us together as a Nation…
Wait…no rant about the left and their pseudo-lution would be complete without imagery of victimized immigrants. Surely this can’t be the day the Obama government in exile missed having a story echoing this line of liberalism, could it?
“‘Trapped’: Why one Mexican woman ‘self-deported,’ long before Trump…” (Whew! I was worried they’d missed a day.)
And why is this important? Because today “Trump Asks Supreme Court To Reinstate Travel Ban On 6 Majority-Muslim Nations.”
The co-opted press continues to sell the agenda of immigration = victims. Sadly, most of the SMS (seriously missing sense) crowd will buy it lock, stock, and,….
And so, another day of glacial-speed pseudo-revolution continues.
I don’t mean to sound partisan, but the insanity of the left is widely apparent. They seem to have no sense of numbers or finance.
Take for example Illinois: Just had the state debt ratings reduced to near junk. Another fine democratic state, huh?
And in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia, a seriously half-assed healthcare wet dream pretending to be a $400-billion single-payer healthcare plan which, near as we can tell, had no funding mechanism.
Read some of the la-la land democrats quoted – I may have to petition Anderson County Texas to annex Jupiter (yeah, the planet) , if this keeps up.
Meanwhile, Back at the Economy
New Jobs Report is just out. Press release, please?
“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 138,000 in May, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 4.3 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Job gains occurred in health care and mining.
Household Survey Data
The unemployment rate, at 4.3 percent, and the number of unemployed persons, at 6.9 million, changed little in May. Since January, the unemployment rate has declined by 0.5 percentage point, and the number of unemployed has decreased by 774,000.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for Whites edged down to 3.7 percent in May. The jobless rates for Blacks (7.5 percent), Asians (3.6 percent), and Hispanics (5.2 percent), as well as those for adult men (3.8 percent), adult
women (4.0 percent), and teenagers (14.3 percent), showed little or no change.
Among the unemployed, the number of job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs declined by 211,000 to 3.3 million in May. The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was essentially unchanged over the month at 1.7 million and accounted for 24.0 percent of the unemployed.
The labor force participation rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 62.7 percent in May but has shown no clear trend over the past 12 months. The employment-population ratio edged down to 60.0 percent in May.”
The labor participation rate dropping is a concern, for sure. The CES Birth-Death Model estimated 230,000 jobs into existence in May.
Dow futures are looking like +60 at the open as we continue working our way toward what our long wave economic models suggest could be the all-time high this summer.
