LEFT, RIGHT FRINGE SOW DEMONIZATION, CREATE MALAISE

The Biden-Harris administration and Democratic congressional majority have allowed themselves to be pushed into embracing a leftist woke agenda under the pretext that it will cure the "Trump malaise." The pushers are the party's Left/socialist fringe - self-described "progressives" - led by the SQUAD in the House and Bernie Sanders in the Senate. The Squad is few in number, just 7, and were nominated in overwhelmingly Democratic districts with between 2 to 10 percent of the registered voters (RVs). They are adept at manipulating social media, and use the news media to demonize any critics. As is obvious, politics is no longer about finding a solution to a specific problem. It's about promoting an agenda, notwithstanding the fact that the solution may create attendant problems. Facts are eclipsed by feelings. Propaganda prevails. America must DO WHAT IS RIGHT - in their opinion - and anybody who disagrees is stupid, racist, sexist etc. Promoting one's ideology is paramount. And that is what the fringe does, like the tail wagging the dog. Full Article...

"PETER PRINCIPLE" DICTATES CONGRESSIONAL OBEDIENCE, INSURES LONGEVITY

The "Peter Principle" is a theory popularized in the 1970s that posits that everybody's career is predicated on the premise that they continue to rise until they reach a level of incompetence and then no longer get promoted. Members of the U.S. House need not worry about their creeping incompetence. For them - and this applies to both parties - their version of the Peter Principle is they rise to their level of obedience. And an obedient congressman/woman either (1) has the campaign money to get re-elected in the short-term or (2) has the district to be safe in the long-term. Obedience equals longevity. Forget about intellectual creativity, independent thought, and perish the notion of bipartisanship. Just vote the party line, support/oppose the current administration and all will be well. A PVI (Partisan Voter Index) chart is attached. Full Article...

ASSESSOR KAEGI IN CROSSHAIRS WITH MARKET VALUE SPIKES AND 2022 PRIMARY CHALLENGE

In the olden days, it was common to kill the messenger for bearing bad news. Fortunately for first-time Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi (D) 2021-22 is not the olden days, but many city and suburban residents are upset about their property assessment values and tax rates spiking in certain areas. And they want someone to blame. One possible candidate could be Kari Steele. She is the president of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) since 2019, is the daughter of onetime South Side 6th Ward alderman and judge John Steele, and has a push-poll in the field which reveals her strategy - which is to tap into the democratic socialtist/liberal/minority contingent which constitutes a majority of the county' Democratic base.

THE LEFT ALWAYS WINS LONGTERM, BUT WON'T IN 2022

I hate to say it, but the Left is winning. That fact cannot be ignored, eradicated or canceled, which is what would happen if the Left were losing. Throughout history the Left has usually been winning. Liberals have become even more liberal, and conservatives even less conservative. There is a continual pendulum: A surge of “Leftist” activity (like now), enactment of “Leftist” initiatives, then a pushback and conservative retrenchment, and then a decade or so later even more liberalism. A “liberal” is defined by Webster’s dictionary as someone who is “tolerant of views different from one’s own... favoring societal reforms tending toward democracy and personal freedoms.” Yeah right, not anymore. Forget that. Full Article...
