The Cuomos – A Study in Familial Decay

Yesterday Tom D asked me on the site if I thought Andrew Cuomo’s excuses about Italians being so emotionally and physically demonstrative that his good-natured affection was being mistaken for sexual harassment.  I assured Tom that Andrew Cuomo was demonstrating that he was a creepy pervert.

I fully concede that old-time Italian Americans were more likely to hug and kiss family members than their Irish American neighbors were likely to in similar circumstances.  But I also assured him that some old man who started groping young women was more than likely to be beaten to a pulp by that girl’s brother or father if he was caught in the neighborhood doing it.  And that’s in the US.  Back in the old country he’d probably get knifed for his trouble.

What I consider Andrew Cuomo to be is a cheap bastard.  Now that he’s divorced, he appears to be trying to avoid remarriage or some other honorable romantic arrangement by hitting on the poor unfortunate women who have to work for this slime ball.  Think about it.  He’s the governor of one of the largest, richest states in the US.  There are probably a hundred thousand women in the state who would willingly entertain the idea of dating this loser.  And in fact, he probably wouldn’t have to spend all that much to do it.  He could pass along most of the costs to the state government accounts he already abuses for various purposes.  But no.  He’s too lazy to even bother looking for women even if it would be like shooting fish in a barrel.  So, he perves around these twenty-something assistants and even police officers hoping that one of them is desperate enough to want to have sex with an old, ugly dirtbag who also happens to be the most powerful man in the state.  The sad part is that it probably worked on some of them, the ones who won’t come forward now out of embarrassment.

And now he tries to claim that all this is just the younger generation mistaking avuncular friendliness for decrepit horniness.  The funny thing is he may get away with it.  The legislature would have to impeach him to get him out of his office.  And maybe the Republicans there may think it’s better to leave him in office and run against him in 2022.  Wouldn’t that be a bizarre twist.

Andrew and Chris (Fredo) Cuomo are pretty sad excuses for public figures.  Their father Mario Cuomo was just another Democrat machine politician.  But he at least could string together a few paragraphs in a way that showed that he was an intelligent man.  His sons seem not to have inherited any of his brains.  Whenever I see Chris Cuomo on television, I get the impression that someone must have been blackmailed or bribed into hiring him.  He has no discernible skills at speaking, thinking or even reading a teleprompter without looking like a deer in the headlights.  Andrew is a little less stupid.  He is savvy enough to suck up to the proper Democrat power brokers when it will do him the most good.  I assume he has been given assistance from his father’s allies and subordinates while moving up the political ladder.  What happens next should be enlightening and possibly entertaining as the MeToo movement and the Democrat Establishment try to pry the governorship away from Andrew without too much gore.  But who knows, Mario may have handed over dossiers on the people Andrew needs to fight.  It may just play out in the court of public opinion where it will do the most damage to Cuomo and the Dems.

So, my verdict is that Creepo and Fredo should be the last generation of Cuomos we’ll have to hear about in the news.  And that’s a relief to Italian Americans across the length and breadth of Former America.

A Republican Governor Does something Right and Smart – American Greatness Post of the Day

Missouri Governor Mike Parson (R-Mo.) issued a pardon for the St. Louis couple ( Mark and Patricia McCloskey) that successfully defended their home from far-left terrorists last year, after local prosecutors had sought to charge them with a crime.  Parson is showing some real smarts here.  Encourage the people who vote for you and stick a thumb in the eye of those who are attacking your people.  Now go further and clean up the BLM activity in St. Louis and he’ll be thought of as a real leader.

I read that Mark McCloskey is thinking of running for the Senate seat that GOP Senator Roy Blount is vacating next year.  Of course, I don’t know much about McCloskey other than his choice in firearms and his desire not to let a mob burn down his house but that might be enough to get him a senate seat in these times of BLM mob intimidation.  Sounds like a feel good story to me.

Tucker Talks About Hungary’s Pro-Family Policies

Victor Orban is Hungary’s Prime Minister.  He is a populist Hungarian nationalist and he’d rather help his people raise their own families than import third world immigrants to replace them.  Tucker went to Hungary to talk to Orban and the media is very angry about it.  Listen to Tucker’s description of the program.  Grants to families that have three or four children,  No income tax for life for large families.  Tax breaks to grandparents that help with the children.  Sounds good to me.  I hope some of our leaders like DeSantis and Abbott go to Hungary and learn a few things there.

I’ve been thinking about Hungary as a refuge of last resort but not being of Hungarian extraction they probably wouldn’t let me in.  So there is definitely one club I’d like to join that wouldn’t have me as a member.  Take that Groucho Marx.

This Idiot Just Out-Fauci-ed Fauci

The Director of the NIH recommends that parents who have been vaccinated but have children under 12 years old should wear masks in their homes.  That may be the single stupidest thing I’ve heard so far from one of these medical bozos.  So if a mother has a six month old child she is supposed to wear a mask around him despite the fact that she’s in skin contact with the baby for hours at a time?  How about breast feeding?  Is that going through a filter somehow.  These people must think we’re morons.  If you live in the same house with someone else he will be exposed to any virus as contagious as COVID is.

I wonder if after this is over some unbiassed scientific panel can go over the statements made by Fauci and company and have it used as evidence of medical malpractice.  These people are worse than charlatans.  I’d trust a witch doctor before I’d go to them for medical help.

DeSantis Shows Some Brains and Guts

When the Broward County school system voted to mandate masks in the schools, Florida Governor DeSantis let them know that their funding would be cut in accordance with the recent law outlawing mask mandates in the schools.  And the schools backed down.  Finally someone with guts willing to stand up to Fauci and the other nitwits in the COVID conspiracy.  Let the parents who want their six-year-olds to wear masks do so.  Let normal people live normally.

Now that’s Republican leadership.  Let the rest of the Red State governors take notes.

 

 

 

The Great Contraction

The more I think about what is going on in the West, the more I’m convinced that the Elites want to get rid of us.  And by us I don’t even mean just conservatives.  I mean they want to get rid of everyone but them.  With the advent of artificial intelligence and the various technologies that it allows I believe they see a future with a human global population several orders of magnitude smaller than the present one.  So instead of six or eight billion people they would like it to be more like fifty million.  And maybe I’m still off by a factor of ten.  I could see them thinking that if there were five million humans inhabiting planet Earth that things would be a lot better for themselves and Gaia.  But whether the number is a million or a hundred million I think their idea is that most of us have to go.

If you look for the evidence it’s there to see.  Look at the causes they champion.  Abortion, deviant sexual lifestyles that produce no children, environmental activism that focuses on humans as a problem to be eliminated, educational programs that cannot qualify the candidates for useful work, “sustainable” energy sources that can only provide reliable energy for a fraction of the current population.  These are not meant to allow for a people to thrive but rather dwindle and vanish.  It’s the equivalent of using a targeted metabolic herbicide that renders the weed unable to thrive or reproduce.  Slowly but surely, it shrinks and withers away.

And I think it’s already well on its way to happening.  The method is; impoverish the middle class, put everybody but themselves into a sub-human existence with a poverty level welfare check, cheap drugs, free internet access and then disincentivize childbearing and childrearing and let the problem take care of itself.  And the amazing thing is a lot of the millennials are willingly going along with it.  The sheep are allowing themselves to be fed into the hopper that leads to the slaughterhouse.

Now I don’t mean to seem hysterical.  This isn’t some apocalyptic battle.  They aren’t going to start building the soylent green plants.  They won’t have to.  It will be a slow painless process of slowly contracting the breeding population to only those who can adapt to the conditions that they are creating.  Anyone who can stomach parroting back the latest mantra of equity, inclusion and diversity can keep living on their treadmill for a little while longer.  You can even raise your family.  Although they are propagandizing your children to think that bringing white people into the world is a crime.  So, the machine is still working on them too.

Meanwhile the Eiltes’ children go to private prep schools and Ivy League universities where it is understood that other than parroting the newspeak when any of the proles are around, they are fated to live in the “better world” that will exist after the riff-raff have been exterminated.

With the resources available to the global elite, it’s not unreasonable to think that they will be at least mostly successful in their program.  After all they’re not talking about eliminating some other race or ethnic group.  No one thinks of genocide involving people by class.  But that’s the plan in a nutshell.  I guess it’s hard to know if the Chinese will get on board such a program.  They have already retreated from their version of this idea with the cancelling of the ill-conceived one-child-family mandate.  But who knows?  As the Chinese become more integrated in the global community perhaps their elites will become integrated with their global brethren and embrace the dream of de-peopling Earth.

Well, where does this leave us?  I guess we have three choices.  We can try to become part of the elite and just let everyone else go down the drain.  Or we can organize our own community and look out for each other.  We can help young people afford to raise families and build wealth.  The question is whether we will be allowed to do this inside the sphere of influence of the global elites.  And that brings us to the third choice, leave.  The developed world is becoming monolithic in its rules and its ability to control the lives of those it rules.  It may be that the only way to thrive as a non-elite community is to move out of the first-world.  Maybe there’s still room in Eastern Europe or South America or parts of Asia where the influence of Cloud People isn’t yet all powerful.  I hesitate to say that we’ll have to head off into the Amazon jungle just to raise families but who knows?

This theory is not original to me.  I think many people have looked at all the trends that the people in charge look at and see that their agenda dove-tails with an effort to decrease the “surplus” population.  Why I think it is important to think in these terms is that any short-term political victories we may have won’t address the long-term strategies that the Elites pursue.  That would only happen if we took away all their money and I don’s see that ever happening (although it is fun imagining).  And it is useful to think in these terms.  It provides you with a way to prioritize what is needed to survive such a program.  Basically, make sure that your kids produced kids and they produce kids and so on.  Whatever you do to make that happen will make a Cloud Person sad.  And that’s good.
