Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez predicting the end of the world in twelve years unless we all enlist in her Green New Deal with a conservative sticker price of 50 trillion dollars.  She truly is a dope, but she has a born demagogue’s skill at threatening imminent disaster unless we immediately, without debate,  buy all the snake oil she is peddling.  In a recent poll, seventy-four percent of Democrat respondents said they would vote for her if she were old enough to run for President.  However, that age proscription is in the racist Constitution crafted by old dead white men in 1787, and certainly will not be of consequence to the Latina Messiah hell bent on  bringing us green socialism?  If a civil war does come to this fair land of freedom, I doubt if Ocasio-Cortez will look so humorous in retrospect.

The Barbarian hopes — and that is the mark of him, that he can have his cake and eat it too.  He will consume what civilization has slowly produced after generations of selection and effort, but he will not be at pains to replace such goods, nor indeed has he a comprehension of the virtue that has brought them into being.  Discipline seems to him irrational, on which account he is ever marvelling that civilization, should have offended him with priests and soldiers…. In a word, the Barbarian is discoverable everywhere in this, that he cannot make: that he can befog and destroy but that he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.

We sit by and watch the barbarian.  We tolerate him in the long stretches of peace, we are not afraid.  We are tickled by his irreverence; his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creed refreshes us; we laugh.  But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond, and on these faces there are no smiles.

  1. Where was this quote when Obama was in the White House? This describes him to a T. 11 trillion dollars, gone. Integrity in government, gone. The sanctity of marriage as it has always existed, gone. To quote one of my favorite movies, “He pissed it all away.” The only difference with her is that she is more attractive and, for the moment, has less power. Hopefully, we are learning how to stand up to these bullies and she will never gain the power to do real harm.

  2. You must stop kowtowing to crazies.

    Two words: “Solar Output.”

    The green graft hoax is based on post-modern nonscience, wherein they cherry pick eight or ten, out of millions, of data points and run around screaming, “We are all going to die!”

    Worldwide temperatures have not risen in 19 years.

    Climate change is climate change. The apocalyptic hysterics are not about saving the planet. They are about seizing control. As with all of the crazies’ apocalyptic hoaxes, the cures involve taking control over people’s lives and devastating the economy.

    The problem: while she is only one, there are what? 235 Democrat crazies running amok in the House. Thank God Trump not only held the Senate, he has the VETO.

  3. Father of Seven, I need to point out one additional thing.
    As a black man elected President, instead of helping to heal the country from past wrongs Obama did every thing he could to deepen racial divides. And it seems he did it for personal and party political gain.
    That I think is the worst thing he did & didn’t do.

  4. I lack the patience and fortitude to wade through You Tube in search of this, so I’ll ask those here: has this woman ever been publicly engaged in serious conversation with anyone who challenges her demagoguery? Thus far I’ve seen nothing but fawning “interviewers” throwing softballs her way. I wonder how she would deal with serious, substantive challenge.

  5. “I wonder how she would deal with serious, substantive challenge.”

    Poorly I should imagine. Ben Shapiro has offered her $10,000.00 to debate him, a challenge she wisely, from her point of view, disdainfully declined.

  6. Well said David WS. I should have made it clear that the list was not exhaustive. I could also add that if he’d had his way on everything he wanted, even protection for humans actually born alive would have been removed.

  7. Lily Tomlin once said that sometimes the worst thing that can happen to you is for you to get what you want. This young woman was already badly sidetracked and being a parody of a legislator just exacerbates matters further. She needs to learn a proper trade, get married, and have children. Electoral politics is a proper activity only for those whose foundations are in place.

  8. Well put, Art.

    And speaking of those without foundations: he isn’t getting the fawning national press (yet), maybe because he’s too male, but Julian Castro is about as deep as dear Alexandria and purveys a similar set of socialist fantasies. And then there’s Kamala.
    Is it not frightening to think that, right now, Bernie and Joe Biden are the closest thing the Dems have to adults in the room?

    If you want to give yourself a good scare, contemplate that the Republican bench isn’t particularly deep either. Light, sure, but not deep.

  10. I think what AOC’s mistake is that she doesn’t realize is that in 12 more years we’ll all be ready for the world to end.

    Heck I’m ready for it now.

  11. Colour Sergeant Bourne : “Because we’re here, lad. Nobody else. Just us.” My all time favorite line from a movie! It is this line that I consider whenever anything unpleasant happens. 9/11, etc.

    Nigel Green the actor who portrayed was great the very model of a British Sergeant. He was also great in “The Ipcress File”.

  12. Ernst Schreiber et al.

    Truth! Four Words: “Solar Output And Interglacial.” There were Four Massive Global Warming Events In The Past 1,000,000 years.

    From my college freshman Ancient History text:

    In the past million years there have been four glaciations with four long period of warming interspersed. About a million years ago, the first glaciation was the Gunz/Nebraskan. About 700,000 years ago the second glaciation was the Mindel/Kansan. About 300,000 years ago was the Riss/Illinoisan. About 100,000 years ago was the Wurm/Wisconsin glaciation. Both the climate and the face of the Earth greatly changed during the four advances and retreats of immense glaciers. We are living in an interglacial period, with comparatively little change in the past 10,000 years. Anthropomorphic Climate Change is a hoax.

    Plus, if the imbeciles (AOC – Loud, Proud, Stupid – and The Entire Democrat Party Fustercluck) get their way, Climate Change Policies Will Hurt Poor People. Everybody wants clean air and water. A tiny minority – Obama, Gore, Clinton, Bushes, Ryan, et al – wants to make life miserable for middle and lower class Americans. Solar energy generation is five-times and wind energy generation is 3.5-times more costly than fossil fuels. The morons already wrecked health care. Most Americans think economic disaster is not good for most Americans.

  13. “and The Entire Democrat Party Fustercluck.”

    T. Shaw….
    Did you ever hear the one about the dyslexic atheist insomniac?

    He would lie awake at night wonder if there really was a dog.

    Any who…. I like your comments.
    They politely express a similar disdain that I have for the party of death. Your expressions are healthy.

    TAC is an Oasis of sorts.
    Helps me to lower my blood pressure.

    Peace.

  14. “If you want to give yourself a good scare, contemplate that the Republican bench isn’t particularly deep either. Light, sure, but not deep.”
    You’re exactly right, Ernst, and I’m doing my best not to think about that for a while.

  15. AOC may be a dimwit, but she is savvy. She took to heart Bush’s lesson that “You can fool some of the people all of the time . . . and those are the ones you have to focus on.”

  16. What scares me the most in this whole Cortez debacle is not what she says but that she actually got elected. People….actual people voted for her….
