Well Brush...in 2014, a liberal immigration organization sure thought that Obama had very broad authority in the area of immigration law...

The President’s Broad Legal Authority to Act on Immigration
AUGUST 2014

You miss my point...what is good for the goose...libs should have realized that result oriented reasoning can someday come back to bite them in the ass. That time has come and that is one reason they are wailing so loudly and gnashing teeth...elections have consequences...even for libs...

what is best in life...

"Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their sissy boy ex-president."

I agree 100%. I like pointing out to liberals that were so happy about the Obama care that Donald Trump is now in charge of their healthcare. I think I am going to give one of them a stoke some day they way their faces turn red

My apologies. Anyway, so much is going to haunt libs..."nuclear option" - "executive authority" etc., etc. ...this is not going to be pretty.

I have a considerable number of social media contacts, mostly former co-worker peers and employees, who have taken a very active role in immediately protesting the new administration.

The overall group average is strongly supportive of the disruption and inconvenience theme, particularly airports.

I am finding it hard to come up with a worse idea to generate support for an opposition movement than to mess with people traveling for work or personal reasons.

The 90% in the middle will grow to hate them.

So I'm all for the left messing with airport travel, as the negative 1st, 2nd, 3rd order effects for the lefty opposition will "be huuuuuge"(I'm my Trump voice).

I only hope they don't learn from their mistakes and don't iterate.

Much like the horrible failure of the Occupy Movement.

Forget about the nuclear clock, I'd like to see someone take a crack at building one for civil insurrection/war.

I'm just waiting for the lefties to go all "FerguMoreLand" and find out the police have new orders and the DOJ only ask...was there any discrimination involved? No! We treated all the violent protesters the same, and they all bled the same color red.



BTW - whatever happened to Sheriff Clark?

FerguMoreLand = Ferguson+Baltimore+Cleveland

CWII? That could also stand for Cold War Part Deaux since the opposing philosphies are about the same as in Cold War, the Prequel. Just like in WWII, the other side got a early start. Only this time that headstart was something like 50+ years.

Let's meet a member of the offensive team. A graduate of Marxist State and expelled from the Socialist Workers for being too radical, it's Socialist Action.

Here are some key notes from SA's playbook (on their About page):

Class Struggle & Independence: We believe that the world is divided into opposing social classes, and that the main driving force of modern history is the struggle between the working class and the capitalist class. We are active partisans of the working class and believe in the need for independent working class politics – not alliances with the capitalists, or any wing of that class. That is why we call for workers to break from the Democratic Party to build a Labor Party based on the trade unions (they're coming for you too, Pelosi). In all of our political work we seek to get workers to see and think of themselves in terms of class, and to recognize that their class interests are diametrically opposed to that of the capitalists.

Revolution: We believe that the state and all of its institutions are instruments of the ruling class, and that therefore they cannot be used as tools of the working class, but have to be smashed. That is why we fight for revolution, instead of for seeking to merely reform or work within the system. When we fight for specific reforms we do so only with the understanding that in the final analysis real social change can only come about with the overthrow of capitalism (they mean the US and western civilization), and the establishment of a workers’ government.

Here comes identity politics folks. Divide an conquer. Doesn't this next section sound a lot like every progressive or Democrat you've ever heard?
The Specially Oppressed & Oppressed Nationalities: We support the struggles of those who are specially oppressed under capitalism – women, queers, national minorities, etc. We support and help build autonomous movements for the oppressed so that they can articulate their own demands, and develop political consciousness as a group. We support the right of self-determination for oppressed nationalities, including Blacks, Chicanos & Puerto Ricans.

Permanent Revolution: This famous theory by Leon Trotsky (yes, that Trotsky!) holds that revolution in modern times, even in under-developed countries, has to be led by the working class and has to be a fully fledged socialist revolution – revolution cannot go through stages and cannot be made in alliance with any wing of the capitalist class. To be ultimately successful it also needs to be an international revolution. We believe that a successful socialist revolution will result in a workers’ government that is based on elected workers’ councils.

If you still think they sound like a lovely bunch, this Socialist Action, then I invite you to read this article posted on their website: How to Make a Revolution.

^^^Working Class my ASS! These F_cksticks have never had a real job their entire lives and they want to fight for the right to live off their parents and the system (simply) put forth by capitalists with guilty feelings from their success.

These are the same people that drive a f_cking Prius (with a Gore'08 bumper sticker) in the HOV lane and slow down to the same speed as the general purpose lanes in slog hour filled with the working class to show unity. HOV guilt!!!

Also I thought SA stood for Sal Alinsky or maybe it does. 8-rules for radicals.

Ya know the next thing these SJW are gonna sport is Green Beret so they can say they are fighting for the Oppressed. (Better buy stock in Rainbow tie-dye Che Guvera shirts, there's gonna be run on them.)

I love your viseral reply, brother! Go to their website (use a proxy!) and really get pissed off. BTW, I always associated SA with Hitler's Sturmabteilung, also called the Brownshirts. To me, this seems apropos given the similar tactics.

Your and ODNT assessments are right on point! These are the neo-fascists, and the alignment of the progressive Left with these clowns will spell the demise of the Democrat party IMO.

I say that because if you listen to the rhetoric coming from candidates for the DNC Chair, they are doubling down on the failed identity politics.

Liberalism, at least in the sense represented by the likes of Archibald Macleish (1930's) and JFK/RFK (1960s) is dead!

Liberalism of old is being co-opted by organizations like Occupy Democrats (neo-fascists) and they are following Saul Alinsky's playbook. If these fools think that the unions will align with them they have really misread the shifting dynamic here. Even in a union town like Philadelphia, the union leadership is shifting towards the Trump brand of Populism. (The membership did that in the last election).

My guess is that these neo-fascist groups are organized with and by Soros money. I say go for it boys and girls. This will ultimately result in your self-marginalization and I won't have to listen to the likes of Pocahontas Warren or Crooked Hillary ever again!

Bottom line: If Trump is successful, and I believe he will be, there will be a realignment of global politics that will last for at least the next 50 years.

Some never learn the lessons from Animal Farm. The Perpetual Revolution only begets a new elite class. Eventually, one of them does not want to let go of the power and kills all the opposition.

My gut instinct right now is telling me the same. ;)

Liberalism of old is being co-opted by organizations like Occupy Democrats (neo-fascists) and they are following Saul Alinski's playbook. Alinsky, Cloward & Piven, but most importantly Marx & Trotsky. If these fools think that the unions will align with them they have really misread the shifting dynamic here. Even in a union town like Philadelphia, the union leadership is shifting towards the Trump brand of Populism. (The membership did that in the last election). I don't expect the unions to be onboard with Trump for long. Let's not mistake support for a specific action or policy as a sea change in Union politics. SEIU never did get on board; they were a Women's March on Washington sponsor, if I'm not mistaken.

Bottom line: If Trump is successful, and I believe he will be, there will be a realignment of global politics that will last for at least the next 50 years. I wager that 50 years is far, far too optimistic.

Is the conservative side finially joining the fight? Well, there is no conservative side if we're referring anything resembling an organized political movement. Conservatives tend to come together in short-term crisis mode, then return to their lives once that particular crisis has passed.
