Medicare For All Already Exists-In Venezuela.

This will be the state of our health care in short order should Bernie’s birdbrains get their way.

YouTube socialist Carlos Maza slams the wealthy but lived in luxury

Like so many others who want to impose the same socialist paradise that has been such a glowing success in places like Cuba and Venezuela, this guy is a fraud. The only problem he has with the gap between the rich and the poor is that it is not wide enough. These clowns are all about maintaining the illusion that they care about the common man and woman while they live in walled compounds to make sure they do not encounter any who are not on the servant staff. 

Carlos Maza doesn’t like rich people. The social media socialist with more than 150,000 followers on Twitter and YouTube combined regularly uses his platforms to rail against the wealthy and powerful and urges fans to be skeptical of their opinions. “Just found out James Carville — who spends his time lecturing Democrats for being ‘too far left’ — lives in an absolutely obscene four-story mansion,” Maza said in one such example from February — blasting the longtime Democratic strategist and posting a photo of Carville’s old home to his Twitter account. “Dear god can we STOP taking political advice from the ultra-wealthy,” he bemoaned. “You really have to respect this guy’s grift. Constantly dressing in normal clothes on TV to feign relatability [sic] while living like this. Masterful con artist” “We should treat gay people the SAME WAY we treat straight people: Eating them when they get too rich,” he said in another post. Like any good online socialist, Maza raises money for his internet presence through a Patreon account, where “comrades” — a word Carlos uses to describe his supporters — can fund him in increments of $2, $5 and $10 a month. But if Maza wants to start eating the rich — he may have to have to begin with his own family. Through his clan, the millennial firebrand is connected to multiple Florida mega-mansions, a $7.1 million pad on the Upper West Side purchased under an LLC — and a yacht by luxury boat-maker Donzi. Maza’s mother Vivian Maza was one of the first employees at Ultimate Software, a Florida-based behemoth which now employs more than 5,000 people. Starting in 1990 as an office manager, she ultimately rose to become the group’s chief people officer in 2004. In addition to her day job, Vivian Maza also developed a very close personal relationship with company founder Scott Scherr — so close that an independent assessment of the company in 2016 cited the relationship as a “corporate governance concern.” The report said they believed the pair to be “more than just co-workers” and have a “familial relationship.” The two later became engaged, and the couple has lived together for years, with Scherr being a de facto stepfather to Carlos. Public records show Vivian, Scott, Carlos and sister Isabel all registered to vote at a five-bedroom, eight-bathroom waterfront palace in Boca Raton, Florida. The property sold in 2018 for $10.8 million according to realty website Zillow. Scherr also unloaded a four-bed, four-bath home in 2015 mansion in Weston, Florida, for $1,850,000 in 2015.

A look back at Stalin on the anniversary of the dictator’s death – New York Daily News

I wonder if Bernie Sanders would like to expound on this socialist icon. I understand he increased literacy in the Soviet Union too.

He was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 20 million people during his brutal rule, but on March 5, 1953, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin died and so did his dictatorship. Look back dictator’s life and evil reign that lasted two decades.

Bernie’s Fantasy World

I was watching a mother’s panel on fox news this morning, and one of the ladies mentioned a website called bernietax.com. Out of curiosity, I took a look at it. And based on what he presents there, my disposable income would be almost 100 dollars a week more. Sounds great, right? If you ignore the reality that what is presented there is utter nonsense, you might be tempted to support the Sanders candidacy. If you can overlook the fact that his proposals would double or even triple the federal budget, it is easy to convince yourself that middle and lower-income taxpayers will pay less under a Sanders administration. You also might want to check to see if someone has mixed peyote into your weed. 

Bernie has become quite adept at dodging the question of the price tag of all the “free” stuff he keeps promising the gullible and the stupid. Health care, as proposed by Sanders, would cost more than the entire current federal budget. He also wants to cancel all student loan debt, make college free for everyone, and provide universal pre-k for all. When pressed for details, he merely says the rich and the corporations will pay their “fair share.” No, they won’t. Economics 101: Companies never pay a penny in tax. They include it in their cost of doing business and pass it on to their customers. The rich and their money will run for the proverbial hills should this buffoon get elected, and the only ones who will benefit will be the tax havens. 

But Bernie lives in a fantasy world. In his world, Castro was cool because he taught his subjects to read and write before he imprisoned and shot them for doing just that. Cuba was such a beautiful place to live that thousands risked their lives to get here on literally anything that would float. In Bernie’s world China is a paragon of progress and prosperity as long as you can ignore the imprisonment, torture, and murder of millions.  The people of Hong Kong are not impressed. They are getting beaten, teargassed, and shot in the streets for having the audacity to protest the Beijing interference on their island. Unlike Sanders and his idiot followers, they are not interested in the Chinese socialist paradise. 

It will be interesting to see tonight at the Democratic debate if the other candidates take advantage of the free oppo research the DNC has instructed its minions in the press to trumpet. Not that all this stuff isn’t true. But the Democrats and their propagandist media are becoming quite proficient at releasing information and videos at a time expertly calculated to do those they oppose the most harm. 

But in Bernie’s world, he is going to get the nomination and beat President Trump. But the reality is that should he get the nomination, it would be a forty state landslide for President Trump. And the powers that be in the DNC know that. I have a feeling that as long as Sanders is in this race, he will be targeted in a way that is usually reserved for Republican Supreme Court nominees and Donald Trump. Welcome to the real world, Bernie.   

Beginning Of The End For Sanders?

I know. Bernie is surging in the polls. Biden looks out of Gas. The race in South Carolina, which Biden was supposed to win handily, is now within reach for Sanders. But Bernie is no longer the amusing left wingnut sideshow he once was. He is on track to take down the Democratic Party as their nominee. While at the moment it seems that there is no way to stop him, the long knives are out for the socialist interloper. The Party lapdogs in the MSM are already attacking him with the type of vitriol and venom usually reserved for President Trump. 

Interviews are appearing all of a sudden showing Sanders defending some of the vilest dictators the world has ever known. When he is finally challenged on just how he plans on paying for what the Socialist Senator is proposing, he has no idea. His Medicare for all boondoggle will cost 30 trillion dollars by his own reckoning, which tells me the cost would be much higher. When pushed on the cost of this and the rest of his plan, he gives a vague disingenuous answer that it will be less than the cost of the current system.

Of course, most thinking people know that Bernie is a fraud. And he is not even a very convincing fraud. He has been able to peddle his idiotic proposals with the blessings of the DNC for some time. They were able to swat him aside with the Hillary Clinton cudgel in 2016. But Joe Biden, who was supposed to fulfill that role in this election cycle, isn’t up to the task. 

Watch for the emergence of more realistic analyses of what Bernie is proposing in the now unleashed press. Watch for the attacks on the debate stage, not only from the other candidates but from the moderators. Bloomberg took much of the fire that would have been directed at the frontrunner in the last debate. But everyone will have their marching orders. It will be amusing to watch.

Brokered Convention Or Bernie Sanders: Which Is Worse For The Democrats?

Despite all the talk about how Bloomberg and his money are going to come riding in on his white stallion to save the Democrats from their voters, they seem to be left with two equally unappealing choices. There is another debate next week, and if Mikey has the same type of showing he had in the last debate, all the slick Madison Avenue advertising and creatively edited tweets may not be able to rescue his campaign. He might be better prepares for the next debate in terms of oppo research, and he might even be able to respond to some of the challenges he had to know were coming in the first debate. But he comes off as a condescending, egotistical, self-important, elitist jerk. That’s going to be a lot harder to fix in a week. 

For better or worse, people pick their favorites based on some very superficial criteria. That’s why we have a political discourse in this country that is ninety percent about the negative qualities of the opposition candidate and precious little about the free and open exchange of ideas. Bloomberg is woefully unappealing in many of those areas that would be necessary to have a broad appeal in a party where the rank and file voters range from very liberal to socialist. The fact that he is a billionaire does not bother me, nor does the fact that he is self-funding his campaign. But when the rest of the Party pounds a constant drumbeat against the one percent, being a member of that group cannot help.

At the moment, there seem to be three choices here, each of which is sure to cause upheaval among Democrats. One is that Bloomberg somehow becomes a viable candidate and can buy the nomination after sitting out most of the campaign. How will all those volunteers and campaign staff workers, and supporters who have slogged through the last year and a half feel about this New York Huckster? There was an obvious distaste for him from the first time he opened his mouth the other night. Worse, the MSM, usually a strong propaganda arm of the DNC, excoriated his debate performance. Result: Democrats lose in November.

The second scenario: Bernie Sanders wins and gets the nomination on the first ballot at the Convention. There is a robust Socialist base in the Party, but convincing a populace that is center-right and center-left, for the most part, to vote for the type of garbage he is peddling is not going to happen. Result: Democrats Lose.

The third scenario: No one wins enough delegates to win the nomination, and they head into a brokered convention. Nothing worse could happen to the Democratic chances than this. Party elites and insiders would then pick the party nominee. Then all the campaigning, all the primaries and caucuses, all the debates would be meaningless. 
No one disputes that the Democrats need a large turnout to beat Donald Trump. A simple hatred of Trump will not be enough. If the democrats are going to get people out to the polls this election day, they will have to put forward someone who can convince voters to vote FOR them and not merely against Trump.

A Man of the People?

This guy has no clue what working people need, but one thing we don’t need is the type of taxation that would be necessary to fund even a small amount of the stuff he is promising. They always dance around this question by repeating some vague concept of middle-class costs going down. How does that work? He would have working people take on the debt, insurance costs, living expenses, and health care costs of people too lazy, stupid, or incompetent to do it themselves. Producers taking on the obligations of non-producers are somehow supposed to cost us less than just taking care of our own personal financial responsibility. The lunacy of this should be evident to anyone with a pair of working brain cells.
