3 Recent Signs The Democratic Party Legislative Agenda Is Communist Revolution

Three events last week showed that Democrats do not want a mere transfer of power if they win the November election: they intend to revolutionize our entire system of government.

The first happened Wednesday, when Democrats blocked the Senate from considering a bill on police reform by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC).

Scott, who is African American, has been working on the issue for years. He had the full support of the rest of the Republican caucus. He also agreed to consider whatever amendments Democrats offered.

They still used the filibuster to block the bill from even being debated.

The episode showed that Democrats do not actually care about police reform. Nor do they want to unite the nation behind any sort of bipartisan compromise. They simply want to use the issue in the elections, which they hope will give them the House, the Senate, and the presidency. Then they can get rid of the filibuster and pass whatever they want.

The second episode happened later that same day, when the school board in Democrat-dominated Oakland, California voted unanimously to abolish the police force in local public schools.

With school shootings still a concern, the board bowed to the wishes of Black Lives Matter activists and removed a crucial layer of defense for the city’s children.

It is not an isolated episode: Democrats on the Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to disband their city’s police.

This is not a party that is interested in rational decisions on public policy. This is a party committed to a revolutionary course.

The third episode happened Friday, when the House of Representatives voted along party lines to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.

It is an utterly absurd proposal. D.C. is barely even a proper city; in land area, it is smaller than Stockton, California. There is no pressing national demand to add another state and redesign of the national flag.

There is only one reason Democrats want to add another state: they want to add two Senators, who — given the partisan makeup of the Swamp — will always be Democrats. That means Republicans would have to work much harder to gain a majority. (It would also mean the majority that confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would never have existed.)

With a permanent majority in the Senate, and the filibuster gone, Democrats will be able to redesign the country, even without passing a constitutional amendment. They will be able to expand the Supreme Court and pack it with liberals with just a simple majority. They will be able to make all eleven-million-plus illegal aliens in the country voting citizens, permanently altering the electorate in Democrats’ favor. They will pass a version of the Green New Deal. And so on.

The Democrats knew a D.C. statehood bill would not pass now; their goal is to soften opposition so that they can pass it next year with minimal opposition, if and when they sweep the November elections.

Democrats have made their intentions clear. The only way to stop their socialist revolution is to beat them in November.

1% ‘ers Better Wake The F**K Up!”

Will Karl, be the comeback kid?

Why do we think the world is about to see the resurrection of the “comrade culture club” over the next ten years?

Make no mistake; there will be a visceral political reaction to the coming acceleration of labor disrupting technology. We got a little taste of it in the 2016 election.

Just wait until it hits the doctoring, lawyering, and accounting class.

To take an example, COIN (contract intelligence) interprets commercial loan agreements that previously consumed 360,000 hours of lawyers’ time per year. ROSS intelligence is another example, combining a simple, Google-like search system to find up-to-date cases, law and extensive advice in seconds, by quickly sifting through databases of legal history. — marketMogul

Karl and Friedrich wrote about it over 150 years ago:

On disruptive labor destroying technology (AI and the robots are coming):

Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones.  – Marx and Engels

On free-trade and globalism (protectionism on the rise):

The need of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the whole surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle everywhere, establish connexions everywhere. – Marx and Engels

Then there are the political leanings of the millennials:

Millennials opt for socialism over capitalism

Given the choice, most Americans would opt for a capitalist country. However, one third would prefer to live in a socialist nation. Millennials are the leading force behind this preference with more than four in ten opting for socialism.  – YouGov

Absolutely stunning.  More than 50 percent of American millennials prefer to live in a socialist or communist country.  Can you blame them?

Debt is a happiness killer. None of us can be truly happy if we’re saddled with debt.

…At the present time, the average American household with student debt owes about $49,000. Graduates in their twenties spend more than $350 per month, on average, on student loan payments and interest. Since the average “entry-level” job was worth about $50,000 a year in 2016 for new graduates, “truly average” college grads in America can expect to see their earnings garnished by between eight and 10% for roughly ten to twelve years after they graduate. —  Forbes 

Remember Bernie?

Therein lies the specter that will haunt the investor class over what is sure to be a tumultuous next decade.

Of course, we are not predicting America is on the verge of a communist revolution.

Nordic Capitalism Cometh

We do believe, however, if things continue as they are,  and there is not a major political and economic reset, the move to Nordic capitalism, or Nordic socialism  — call it what you will —  is a done deal in the United States.

Time To Wake Up

Look at the rising political power of the high school students over the past week, now revolting over the country’s revolting gun laws.   It feels like a watershed moment to us, and they smell it, a chance to change the culture.  They and their older brothers and sisters are the future.

Moreover,  what do you think their reaction will be when they have the epiphany the baby boomers have screwed most of them economically?

One should always be cognizant that an increase in the relative price of assets (prices to income), and housing, in particular, is generally a transfer of wealth from the younger generations to the older generations.

The $112 trillion question is what generation will take the hit?  Will it be the baby boomers as their asset prices mean revert to income or the younger generations who are forced to pay up for the overvalued assets?  Or will a leveling of the playing field take place through the political system?

We have been writing about the coming Clash of Generations for years now.

No Sugar Coating It

Our recommendation to the one percenters and the comfortably numb retired baby boomers, who have bequeathed to and saddled the younger generations with massive pension and public sector debt liabilities?

To the 1% ‘ers, “You better Wake The F&*k Up!”
