EX-LIBERAL RELUCTANTLY SUPPORTS TRUMP

An Ex-Liberal Reluctantly Supports Trump

How historian Fred Siegel came to appreciate the president’s defense of ‘bourgeois values’ against the ‘clerisy.’

An Interview with Fred Stegel by Tunku Varadarajan  Mr. Varadarajan is a Journal contributor and a fellow at New York University Law School’s Classical Liberal Institute.   October  17, 2020

Brooklyn, N.Y.

Donald Trump can count at least one new supporter in this year’s election. “I had a close friend who’d been a business partner of Trump in the ’90s,” the critic and historian Fred Siegel tells me. “Trump ripped off a quarter of a million dollars from him. He told me this when we were discussing the election” four years ago. “Trump just said, ‘So, take me to court.’ I couldn’t vote for him.” Mr. Siegel couldn’t abide Hillary Clinton either, so he “slept through” the 2016 election. Next month he’ll be wide awake—though not woke—and will vote for Mr. Trump.

Joe Biden needn’t worry too much, perhaps. Mr. Siegel, 75, has only twice backed a winning presidential candidate since he reached voting age. But while he’s no bellwether, he does make an energetic case for the incumbent.

Mr. Siegel, a professor emeritus at New York’s Cooper Union and a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, says he overcame his distaste for Mr. Trump for three reasons. First, foreign policy: “Crushing ISIS, pulling us out of the Iran nuclear deal, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, and making fools of those people who insist that the Palestinian issue is at the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict.” Second, by his “ability to withstand a prolonged coup attempt by the Democrats and the media,” which started with the Steele dossier: “If I’m saying what I find impressive about Trump, it’s that he’s survived. He has an extraordinary amount of arrogance, egotism, and self-confidence.”

Mr. Siegel’s third reason goes to the heart of his own political philosophy. He sees the president as a champion of “bourgeois values,” under threat from the “clerisy,” Mr. Siegel’s word for the dominant elites who “despise” those values. He regards Mr. Biden as a “captive” of this clerisy, and running mate Kamala Harris as the “embodiment of it.”

Has environmentalism become more than just a good faith effort to protect the Earth? Is it now tantamount to a religion? And if it is, is that a good thing or a bad thing? PragerU’s latest short documentary, hosted by Will Witt, explores the origins, agenda, and motives of today’s environmental movement. What he finds raises some challenging questions for anyone who sincerely cares about the future of the planet.

KAMALA’S POSITION ON ABORTION

Sunday, September 13th, 2020

 

Kamala Harris’s Abortion Absolutism

by Alexandra DeSanctis    August 12, 2020
Abortion policy is just one of several areas in which California senator Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s running mate, has sworn to abuse executive power to assert her preferences if Congress won’t legislate as she’d like. Her authoritarian instincts were frightening when she was running for president herself, and they’re hardly any less frightening now that, if she and Biden are elected, she will be just one crisis away from the presidency.  
Several of my colleagues have already detailed many of the issues with Harris, but let me add another: She is without question the most radically pro-abortion candidate to run for president or vice president in the history of our country.

As a senator, Harris has cosponsored the most aggressively pro-abortion piece of federal legislation ever introduced, the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would override state restrictions on abortions in the last three months of pregnancy, well after fetal viability. The bill would invalidate any state law that prohibits “abortion after fetal viability when, in the good-faith medical judgment of the treating physician, continuation of the pregnancy would pose a risk to the pregnant woman’s life or health.”

CALIFORNIA IS COMING FOR YOU

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

 

Two  WSJ articles regarding California are included in this email.  The first, California is Coming for You and the second, is  California’s Radical Indoctrination.  Both are alarming and need to be stopped before the rest of the country is subjected to the radicalism that has overtaken California.   Nancy

California Is Coming for You

Its energy, tax and regulatory failures are the Democrats’ ideal for national policy.

 by Andy Kessler     August 30, 2020

I didn’t have to read the entire Democratic Party platform, let alone the spend-tasmagoric Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force recommendations. Sitting here in California, I’m already living it. If polls are to be believed, left-coast policies are coming to you soon—and you’re not going to like it. California is an early glimpse for the rest of the country of a blackout-rolling, water-deprived, tax-hiking, spending-spiking one-party state longing for its old incandescent glow.

The U.S. may flip to one party rule; California is already there. Democrats have controlled the state Assembly since 1997 and the governorship since 2011—or 1999 if you ignore Arnold the Governator, as most do. Single-party rule means single-party rules. We’re No. 1 in the top marginal income tax rate at 13.3%, including for capital gains. That beats New York City. We’re also No. 1 in state sales tax, but only ninth when you include local levies. Still impressive! Everything else follows.

This month Californians have been subjected to rolling blackouts because of the state’s renewable energy mandates—33% today, 60% by 2030 and 100% by 2045. When the sun goes down, which I understand happens every evening, solar cells are worthless. So California has to buy energy on the spot market—sometimes for 10 times normal prices when it’s hot. So we get rolling blackouts. This craziness could be yours too in the near future. Get used to higher bills and resetting your clocks.

California is No. 3 in the nation in water prices. Sad, since it grows 90% of America’s broccoli, 95% of its garlic, 71% of spinach, 69% of carrots and two-thirds of fruits and nuts. Your prices are going up. And kiss incandescent lightbulbs goodbye—most were outlawed in California as of Jan. 1. Someone please send a box of 60-watt flame-tip candelabra base bulbs my way. I’m getting desperate.

CALIFORNIA’S GREEN ENERGY BLACKOUTS

California Gov. Gavin Newsom: Time to ‘Sober Up’ About Green Energy’s Flaws

by Joel B Pollak   August 17, 2020

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that the state had to “sober up” about the fact that renewable energy sources had failed to provide enough power for the state at peak demand, and needed “backup” and “insurance” from other sources.

Newsom addressed journalists and the public in the midst of ongoing electricity blackouts that began on Friday, as hundreds of thousands of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) customers in northern and central California lost power.

There is currently high demand for electricity across the state, as the entire West Coast has been hit by a heat wave and record-breaking temperatures.

One reason the state lacked power, officials admitted, was its over-reliance on “renewables” — i.e. wind and solar power.

There was not enough wind to keep turbines going, Newsom said, and cloud cover and nightfall restricted solar power.

VIDEO – TUCKER CARLSON – THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

VIDEO – TUCKER CARLSON RIPS THE MASK OFF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

I was working on a post about how the Democrat party is cynically hiding their presidential candidate, Joe “Who’s My Wife” Biden, from public view, while using the Wuhan virus, mobs, and cancel culture to silence any opposition to Democrat politicians or their plans for America. Then, while I was looking for a specific link, I stumbled across Tucker Carlson’s monologue about Biden and the debates. I knew I had nothing to add.

Carlson is getting increasingly angry about what’s going on in this country. The thread of humor that used to underlie his opening monologues is gone. Instead, he’s gone full constitutional warrior, tackling the Democrats’ cynicism, and calling out the dual leftist practices of violence and censorship. Every day, Carlson is better than the day before, and that’s certainly true with this monologue.

This is how these stealth Trump voters will play out in a majority Democrat state such as California: In 2016, 32% of Californians voted for Trump, an insufficient number to give him California’s electoral votes. This year, that 32% of voters may think to themselves, “Why bother?”

Here’s why they should bother: If just 20% more people back Trump in 2020 than did in 2016, that 20%, when added to the 32% of existing California conservatives, means Trump wins California. If the 32% can’t be bothered to show up, there’s no chance of a miracle.

Meanwhile, in traditionally red states, expect election fraud such as you’ve never seen before. Generations of the dead will be signing an X with their skeletal hands so that they can vote for Biden. The only way to assure that fraud doesn’t swing red states to Biden is for Trump supporters to turn out in overwhelming numbers. Only with more living than dead votes can Biden be so soundly trounced that the claims that “Trump cheated” will die a swift, painful death.

Watch Carlson and, if you haven’t already registered to vote in the upcoming election, do so immediately. And then vote in November. Also, if someone accuses you of being racist, spit in his eye. And if your employer tries to fire you over speech or race issues, use the internet to find a civil rights lawyer who will sue your employer into bankruptcy.

We can fight back. We must fight back.
