California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown Gushes Over Chinese Communist Dictator Xi Jiping.

“I met with president Xi for almost an hour. This is a very determined man. He’s building roads and high-speed rail and not just in China, but all over the world.

Washington can’t even build roads and bridges in our own country, much less spreading the American dream all around the world. If we’re going to be the great power we all want to be, we’re going to have to start rolling up our sleeves, raising some revenue and getting the job done.”

Democrats feel less and less need to hide their affection for authoritarian communism. The New York Times recently did a series of articles praising Soviet Communism.

What Moonbeam fails to mention is that the biggest impediment to infrastructure construction in the United States isn’t funding or Government inaction… it’s endless lawsuits brought by his allies on the Environmental Left who want absolutely nothing built and want most things torn down. Except for bird-choppers and bird-roasters. A few years ago the environmental left decided they hate birds or something. And now, they really don’t care how many are killed by solar and wind infrastructure projects.

Maybe it’s because birds are symbols of freedom.

  1. “we’re going to have to start rolling up our sleeves, raising some revenue and getting the job done”

    Leftist to English translation:

    “we’re going to have to steal some more from you, “provide” you even less in return for that plunder, or better yet, make it even harder for you to pay your “fair share”, and then blame it on our political opponents or the natural society when you start complaining for the extra plight we’ll have caused”

  2. 3500 dead birds at one solar power installation was dismissed as a “minimal proportion of local, regional, or national populations.”

    Right. Let a private citizen try explaining 3500 dead birds that way. Do you think for a minute the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife would buy it and cheerfully look the other way?

  3. @2 Indeed, I wouldn’t think it until the end of time, after an assessment done on 8/11/2017.

    Go figure.

  4. When the birds in question become bald eagles, then someone will start to pay attention. (Or perhaps another creature on the Endangered Species List…)

  5. The endangered bats being slaughtered also number in the thousands.

  6. When I first read that headline, I thought you were going to be talking about Donald Trump and Vladmir Putin, or Kim Jong Il, or … My bad… 🙂

  7. I like the idea of China building stuff all over the world. They can afford to, so let them do it. I also like the idea that they will slap those people around, like in Africa, for squandering any of their money and know-how (the way these savage nations have done with ours in the past). The Chinese aren’t going to be quite so easy-going in the “developing” nations, the way we were. Plus, they won’t be criticized either for taking control, either.

    Better them than us. We keep fucking it up, losing our shit there, and ridiculed for it. Screw nation-building. If it can’t be done right, leave it up to another super-power to do it. Someone’s got to tame the third world. Let it be on China’s dime. At least we won’t be hassled for environmental standards, and I’m betting neither will China, no matter how they operate.

  8. Cas, you’re not funny

  9. Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites,

    — in proportion as their love to justice is above their rapacity,

    — in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and presumption,

    — in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves.

    Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without.

    It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.

    Edmund Burke, in a letter to a Member of the (French) National Assembly (1791)

    Who also wrote:

    “It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.”

  11. A thought just came to mind? Why was the governor of CA meeting with the Chinese dictator?

  12. TAD, Cas has lots of trouble with reading comprehension and has no concept of civics or world politics.

  13. “Xi”? You sure it isn’t “Xe,” as in “Xe is laughing.” (WIKI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third-person_pronoun)

  14. “Washington can’t even build roads and bridges in our own country, much less spreading the American dream all around the world.”

    So I guess this was criticism of Obama? Trump’s been in office for approximately 8 months. That’s not even enough time to get permits for a construction job.

  15. So sorry, TAD. There is always another opportunity down the line. Be well, Cas.
