Translucent Massachusetts Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren dined out for decades and made millions of dollars – lying about being an American Indian.
Lyingly laying claim to much more melanin than she actually possesses – is but one of many, many awful things to which Warren has dedicated much of her life.
Warren is almost certainly a lifelong Leftist. Almost no one gets this hardcore radical Left – if they started out on the Right.
“Any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart, and any man over thirty who is not a conservative has no brains.”
But they tell that lie – only so they can all then follow with lying variations of…
“Elizabeth Warren doesn’t like to talk about it, but for years she was a registered Republican. Why she left the GOP – and what it means for her campaign.”
See, Regular America? ‘Liz’ used to be like you are now – but the GOP radicals drove her away.
So you should join with her – and her modest plan for $20-trillion-per-year in additional federal government spending. And we can all hold hands together – as we hurl ourselves off the fiscal cliff into our final Oblivion.
Many, many of the really terrible ideas Warren has championed – have along the way become really terrible laws. And they are now nigh all – REALLY destroying our nation.
And on. And on. And….
Warren is now, of course, running for President of the United States of America (God help us all).
And – believe it or not – the Leftist media has deemed Warren…the Idea Candidate.
And on. And on. And….
The Leftist idea that Warren is the Idea Candidate has now so thoroughly soaked the zeitgeist….
“Rest assured that if we need someone to inspire new memes, Elizabeth Warren is the woman for that.”
Seriously – I am now exceedingly nauseous. Whereas as I contemplated this – I was merely a bit queasy.
Never mind that the seventy years’ worth of Warren’s really terrible ideas – have ALL turned out terrible.
Never mind that Warren’s really terrible ideas for tomorrow – are nigh identical to all the Left’s really terrible ideas for today. And yesterday. And for more than an entire century.
Never mind ALL of that really terrible history. The Left’s March to Oblivion – looks and moves only…Forward!!!
For the Left – there is no Yesterday. There is no Today. There is only Tomorrow.
Because Yesterday and Today – prove the Left wrong. The Left isn’t yet wrong Tomorrow.
Yet another really terrible idea from the Idea Candidate?
Of course she does. She even put quill to parchment – to detail her Idea!-Plan! for the Washington Post….
(What did Leftists use to write before quill and parchment? Computers.)
Guess what Warren’s Idea!-Plan! is?
Is Warren calling for less government? Or more government.
As with all things – Warren is calling for the most government.
As with all things – Warren is calling for government, the whole government and nothing but the government.
As really terrible ideas go – hers could be the absolute worst:
“The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports that a staggering 21.3 million Americans don’t have access to high-speed broadband – no doubt an underestimate given the notorious loopholes in FCC reporting requirements.”
Stop right there.
“The number of Americans lacking access to a terrestrial fixed broadband connection meeting the FCC’s benchmark of at least 25 Mbps/3 Mbps has dropped from 26.1 million Americans at the end of 2016 to 21.3 million Americans at the end of 2017, a decrease of more than 18%.”
The 21.3 million number – was from 2017. And that number – is down 18% from just one year prior.
And the FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection. Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.
But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone. On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet. (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).
And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.
And those 25mbs (download) and 3Mbs (upload) speeds that serve as the FCC minimum? They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.
“Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.”
So even while streaming High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet – “typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth.”
In other words – just about everyone in America has more-than-sufficient access to the Internet.
But Government Everywhere Warren – remains steadfastly impervious to facts:
“I have a plan for a new public option for broadband Internet…that would manage an $85 billion federal grant program. Only electricity and telephone cooperatives, nonprofit organizations, tribes, cities, counties and other state subdivisions would be eligible for grants.”
Get that? No private sector companies are eligible. The entities that, you know, actually built the modern Internet – from scratch. The only entities that have consistently connected anyone – and have already connected basically everyone – are forbidden from participating.
And would Warren’s be the government’s first foray into pretending to be an Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Heavens no – as Warren admits:
“(The 21.3 million American tally – which is really metaphysically close to zero) is despite more than a decade of efforts by policymakers at the state and federal level to end the ‘digital divide’ and deliver universal access to high-speed Internet.”
Government has tried and tried and tried again to be an ISP. And government has failed and failed and failed again.
There’s even an interactive online map – documenting all the very many places government’s very many attempts at being an ISP have failed.
“For decades, local governments have made promises of faster and cheaper broadband networks. Unfortunately, these municipal networks often don’t deliver or fail, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill. Explore the map to learn about the massive debt, waste and broken promises left behind by these failed government networks.”
Decades of failed attempts by government – to pretend to be an ISP.
Which Warren – readily admits.
But Warren demands she drag us once more into that breach.
Off the fiscal cliff – and into our final Oblivion.
Because for the Left – there is no Yesterday. There is no Today. There is only Tomorrow.
And Tomorrow. And….
