To make a call back to the seminal 90’s TV series Babylon 5, which I expect series creator JMS, now a complete shitlib, will destroy with his reboot (Definition: “to make worse and add diversity” — H/T Kevin Smith), the Democrats have a massive hole in their strategy to destroy capital formation in the US for the foreseeable future.
This week Sen. Joe Manchin (D?-WV) personally blew up no less than five terrible taxes that were signature pieces of the ‘Build Back Better’ bill attached to this year’s budget. It was a masterful performance of standing up, being #ungovernable, and simply saying, “You know what? No.”

Now, don’t get me wrong, I fully expect Manchin to cave at some point, just like Kyrsten Sinema has on a few things. But now that Manchin has forced Democratic “leadership” to strip out everything the Progressives want, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trapped in a hedge maze of her own design.
And it left Biden going empty-handed for COP26 in Glasgow, the Climate Summit where the world’s leaders get to harangue us about our selfishness for not wanting to freeze to death in winter or, you know, eat.
He was supposed to show up with a Davos-approved plan to gut the ability of American companies to create wealth of any significance while ensuring our tax system was as much in alignment with the
commies technocrats in Europe as possible.
Pelosi took her big swing yesterday at the Progressives and missed badly, daring them to vote against the bill hours after Biden bumbled his way through trying to explain why $1.75 trillion equals zero.
The vote never happened and now we have a palpable civil war within the Democratic party. And nothing could be better for the future of humanity.
The Democrats, as my partner Dexter White put it recently in our podcast, aren’t a party but rather “a coalition of the aggrieved.” Because of this there is no one policy idea that unites them
Rather they are only animated by the absence of a policy while simply aggregating all those who believe the media that it’s self-righteous to hate Republicans.
In short, the Democrats don’t stand for anything but rather are simply another victims support group.
That’s where the hole in their minds resides, when you then try to stand for something, in this case global communism run by Eurocrats from Brussels, you have no clear messaging as to what you want to achieve, other than, “burn the heretics at the stake!”. And that doesn’t really play well without looking completely insane to everyone who isn’t a “purple-haired cat lady on a cocktail of antidepressants ranting about white supremacy.”
And because of that it creates a hole not only in strategy but in conception. They have a massive blind spot thinking that the rules they’ve always known are still in place.
Pelosi only sees this in terms of her own biases — hating Republicans, besting tyrannical men, being top dog, slitting throats, etc. She’s not seeing nor caring about the bigger picture, this is all about winning the political battle because that’s all she knows.
Schumer has become a laughingstock not only within his own party but in general. He’s been exposed as such a shill for internationalist and intelligence agency forces within our government that he hasn’t sat down on a chair without a hole in it for years, lest he break the hand stuck up his ass making him speak.
Mitch McConnell has outplayed both of them in every conceivable way.
The Progressives thought they had this locked up because DNC leadership was given their marching orders from Davos which was their agenda all along. All each group had to do was virtue signal to their aggrieved supporters and the two factions would Straussian Two-Step (Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis) their way to victory.
