If I Were King….

| February 4, 2020

A jumble of news is offered to you this morning.

This Fox video is 45 minutes long. The person introducing Buttigieg says, at the 10:10 spot, “under Pete Buttigieg’s plan to rule America….”

Go to the line at the bottom of the video and move it to the right to about 10:00 or so to get the full impact of that reprehensible statement.

The last time this nation had a ruler, he lost a major war, tried again and lost, and finally gave up.  After all, Napoleon had busted out of jail at Elba, raised his army again by getting off his horse and telling the Frogs to shoot him or join him and trample the white cockade. They threw down their hats, and joined him, and then he met Old Hooky (Wellington) at Waterloo… and lost.

On a side note, Boris Johnson’s Brexit finally took place.  He now wants a Free Trade Agreement with the EU. It may be that this is the crack in that wall.

And at Oxford University, two Green students were demanding that the university divest itself of its holdings in gas and oil.

From the article:  Two students at St John’s College wrote to Andrew Parker, the principal bursar, this week requesting a meeting to discuss the protesters’ demands, which are that the college “declares a climate emergency and immediately divests from fossil fuels”. They say that the college, the richest in Oxford, has £8 million of its £551 million endowment fund invested in BP and Shell.

Professor Parker responded with a provocative offer. “I am not able to arrange any divestment at short notice,” he wrote. “But I can arrange for the gas central heating in college to be switched off with immediate effect. Please let me know if you support this proposal.” – article

They didn’t like that, especially since it’s winter and they’d get cold.  Some borderline twit named Fergus Green thought that doing such a thing would be “borderline dangerous”.  https://hotair.com/archives/john-s-2/2020/01/31/students-demanded-disinvestment-fossil-fuels-professor-offered-turn-off-heat/

And in the idiot state of Illinois, teenagers and illegal immigrants were improperly signed up to vote at drivers licensing facilities and forwarded to Springfield for processing.  https://jg-tc.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/illinois-election-officials-reveal-more-issues-with-automatic-voter-registration/article_315f1425-f09f-5ede-ad79-373030a1165d.html

From the article:  State election officials have blocked the registration of roughly 4,700 16-year-olds whose information was sent to the board by the secretary of state’s office through the automatic voter registration program, spokesman Matt Dietrich said Thursday.

The issue was raised at the board’s Wednesday meeting, where it also came to light that some U.S. citizens who were applying for licenses through the Real ID program had their information sent to the elections board despite opting out of automatic voter registration.

The revelations come as the program already is under scrutiny for a mix-up that resulted in 545 possible non-U.S. citizens being registered to vote. Of those, 15 voted in elections in November 2018 and spring 2019, including two in Chicago, officials have said. However, eight of those people voted in elections prior to the implementation of automatic voter registration. – article

How about more reality checks like this? Reality is a very harsh mistress. It’s time Miss Reality got up and got in gear.

    The mask is off.
    What they want is power, to rule, to be the lords of all they survey.

    They are not interested in the Constitution of the United States of America other than as a cover for their greed.

  2. The only rulers are the 6in., 12in. and the slide rule. I have seen rulers a little longer than the 12in. up till around 20in., usually sold in craft stores.

    So in other words, “The rest of humanity can go back to the Stone Age living conditions- fine. But I don’t want to be uncomfy and cold in the halls of academia!”

    Another ruler, Louis XVI of France, did not fare as well.

    Neither did Adolph.

      While others were having cake, Marie was losing her head over it all.

      My powder is dry, Artillery will always be the King of Battle, and I am King of FIRSTs…til this Friday anyhow.

  5. ninja says:

    Oops.

    Forgot about Benito.

    The Donks are so fucked up, they can’t even rig a caucus.

    • UpNorth says:

      Right, they couldn’t even have their results they wanted available to release.
      I can’t wait to see what goes on in the streets of Milwaukee, when Bernout doesn’t get the coronation. I wonder, will he settle for another house, or will he insist on a mansion, a Learjet and a Lamborghini this time around?

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        I’m guessing that the Bernie Bros and Bernie Skanks are all wee wee’d up over this. Starting to prep for the convention by making urine bombs and getting out their all black gear to wear.

        These clowns are wanting to make ’68 look like a church social…

    I had a conversation with a snowflake regarding oil and reminded the little pencil necked puke that if he wanted to live without oil, he would have to move into a cave and go naked, make an axe with a piece of chipped flint or quartz and skin an animal with his new knife.
    He honestly thought that electricity actually came out of an electrical socket and that the power companies got it there with some kind of magic….
    You just can’t make this shit up…..

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      I bet said snowflake has never even had a job either!

    • rgr769 says:

      I would like to watch said snowflake attempting to start a fire in front of his cave. From what I’ve seen on Naked & Afraid it is not easy even with a bow drill.
