DC is the Rocky Horror Picture Show



"Don't dream it. Be it." -- Dr. Frank N. Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, 1973.

I visit the Memeorandum site out of habit. It links news stories from the nation's top newspapers, wire services, and television channels.

Not long ago, when Obama was in the White House, Memorandum was a reliable site for news. Now through no fault of its own, the site looks like a news parody site. The stories are always the same: a perpetual quest for the impeachment of President Donald John Trump in order to void the 2016 election.



On November 1, 2017, the top stories were:
  • New York Times: "In Call With Times Reporter, Trump Projects Air of Calm Over Charges."
  • Vanity Fair: "'You Can't Go Any Lower': Inside the West Wing, Trump Is Apoplectic as Allies Fear Impeachment."
  • CNN: "Trump didn't dismiss idea when foreign policy adviser suggested setting up Putin meeting."


On November 1, 2018, the top stories were:
  • New York Times: "Roger Stone Sold Himself to Trump's Campaign as a WikiLeaks Pipeline.  Was He?"
  • The Daily Beast: "Mueller Smear Pushed by Pro-Trump Activists Falls Apart at Press Conference."



On November 1, 2019, the top stories were:

  • New York Times: "Beto O'Rourke Drops Out of the Presidential Race."
  • Politico: "Testimony: White House lawyer told Vindman not to discuss Ukraine call."
  • Washington Post: "Growing number of GOP senators consider acknowledging Trump's quid pro quo on Ukraine."

Beto somehow slipped through and got some coverage.

These stories are nonsense. President Donald John Trump did not collude with Putin to rig the election. President Donald John Trump did not obstruct the Mueller investigation. President Donald John Trump did not demand Ukraine dig up dirt on Joe Biden.

In fact, Biden bragged about forcing Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating the crooks who gave his son a $600,000-a-year no show job.

But the media types believe that if they clap real hard, Tinkerbell will live and President Trump will be impeached and removed from office. In their world, if you close your eyes to the truth, it goes away.

The same is true for the politicians they cover. Consider Elizabeth Warren. She believed if she told people often enough that she was an Indian, she would become one.

Why not? Dr. Frank N. Furter dressed up as a girl and declared himself a woman. Don't dream it. Be it.

Now Warren is pretending that she can trot out a gajillion-dollar health program and have Santa Claus pay for it.

Well, Santa's illegal elves will.

Breitbart News reported, "Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said her agenda to provide amnesty to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States and driving up legal immigration levels will help pay for her Medicare for All plan.

"On Friday, Warren released her plan to end all private health insurance — stripping millions of American union workers of their negotiated health care plans — and enact a Medicare for All program, which would force taxpayers onto public health care plans.

"The $52 trillion plan will be partially paid for, Warren says, by driving up the population to the highest levels possible to increase federal tax revenue. Warren’s plan would hinge on providing amnesty for all illegal aliens and increasing legal immigration levels, which already sit at historic highs with more than 1.5 million foreign nationals added to the U.S. population every year.

"'I support immigration reform that’s consistent with our values, including a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and expanded legal immigration consistent with my principles,' Warren wrote. 'That’s not only the right thing to do – it also increases federal revenue we can dedicate to Medicare for All as new people come into the system and pay taxes.'"

***

So 22 million minimum wage earners will magically cough up $52 trillion to give us gringos free health care.

I have a cure for cancer then. Just deny you have it and it will go away.

And you can keep your doctor, too.
