This isn’t a winnable argument…

It’s pretty wild how easily Democrats forget history. From 2008-2016, there was no greater human being that ever existed than Barack Obama. Now, the 44th president is almost an afterthought.

And what is the problem Dems have with Barry Soetaro, exactly? It’s that he has told 2020 presidential candidates to stop going so far left. Even Obama knows you can’t win an election in America by running as a socialist.

Because of this, some lefties are labeling Barack a “conservative.”

“President Obama is a conservative,” @Swerdlick tells @smerconish.

Obama “believed in using government to change people’s lives…in a way that preserved the way his predecessors had done things and also that had preserved a traditional American sense of the American Dream.”

Reactions:

One problem we face in our current moment is that our pundit class appears to have an implicit theory of language and political discourse that goes roughly “lol words.”

Swalwell’s fart was smarter than this.

Modern liberalism seems to be all about topping themselves in a competition of the nonsensical

There’s only one possible result in that sort of sport — the participants lose their damn minds

It just goes to show that there is no low the left won’t stoop to tear down Republicans, conservatism, capitalism, and everything else that makes America great.

Perspective: Democratic presidential candidates still can’t figure out how to talk about the most popular figure in their party, @Swerdlick writes, and there’s a simple reason.

Barack Obama is a conservative.

Reactions:

This article, written by an austere religious scholar, was brought to you by the letters B and S.

Perspective: Whoever wrote this argument, whether it be @Swerdlick or his editors, *really* doesn’t know (or care about) anything about conservative political philosophy, nor do they care about the basic importance of semantics.

That’s some gaslighting at the highest level right there!!

Soon enough, he will become an Alt-Right figure in the minds of leftists.

They’ve been trying to move the goalposts of the political spectrum for decades. They are beginning to succeed. Soon, even a hint of capitalism will be vilified.

NC Democrat Who Slammed Coronavirus Program Received Millions From It

Published

on

North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham was a rather outspoken hater of the coronavirus stimulus package, but it seems that his criticisms weren’t enough to get him to forego allowing his company to receive $2 million in taxpayer dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he claimed “harms communities.” Funny how many of these individuals on the left will slam a program like this, but secretly put their hands out for it when they think no one is watching. Here’s more on this from The Free Beacon: WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company’s general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program “unacceptable,” saying it “harms communities.” “For PPP loans to have ‘generally missed the industries and areas most heavily impacted by COVID-19′ is unacceptable,” he said in a tweet. “Leaving behind small businesses—and disproportionately those that are Black- and Latino-owned—harms communities.” The former state legislator “supports [WasteZero’s] outreach to municipal and state leaders,” according to an archive of the company’s website. Cunningham also has stock options and a convertible note of up to $50,000 tied to the company, according to his candidate financial report. Cunningham told reporters that he was still working for the company in February. He has since been removed from WasteZero’s website and the company does not publicly acknowledge any legal representation on its site. Neither Cunningham nor WasteZero responded to requests for comment about PPP or…

White House Now Considering $1 Trillion Pandemic Relief Bill

Published

on

The White House is mulling over a second coronavirus relief package and is estimating that it will cost somewhere in the ballpark of $1 trillion, according to reports from Marc Short, chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s “trillion,” with a “t.” The last major bill that was crafted to help small businesses and individuals directly impacted by the coronavirus shutdown was over $600 billion. Short spoke with the folks on Bloomberg radio saying, “There’s obviously a lot of stimulus put in the system over the last couple of bills, and so the price tag for us would be that.” Folks, this is racking up the national debt in ways that are almost unfathomable to comprehend, which is why this isn’t a very good long term strategy. We cannot keep pumping funny money into the economy and expecting it to make a full recovery. What we need is to get back to producing, full swing, to stop things from getting worse. This requires state governors to open up their economies a bit faster than they already are and to loosen some restrictions on companies that might require such measures. Of course, we still need to be as careful as possible not to cause a second spike of the virus, but without herd immunity, this thing is never, ever going to go away. We have to think of the long term picture and not just the short-term. Leftists want to look at the mortality rate for this thing and want it to be zero, completely eliminated. That, of course, is a wonderful goal and something we should want as well. However, we have to acknowledge that as much as we want that, it’s not going to happen. People are still going to die from…
