Name-calling is juvenile, and hardens the target against your arguments. Fabrications are easy to knock aside — like the silly New York Times article. And the irrational — like pretending that you know anyone else’s experience, and how it affected him or her — makes it valid to suggest that the rest of your arguments are just as unserious.
Avoid the hasty conclusion that suggests that you think there’s only your way or the idiot’s way.
Others who believe differently are NOT, by definition, idiots. Others who think differently are NOT, by definition, bigots or racists. Others who perceive things differently are NOT, by definition, fascists or Nazis.
Some called Barack Obama the First Black President, but that didn’t pass even the most superficial scrutiny. Any First Black President would, obviously, encounter nothing but sneering, aggressive hostility from the press, dominated as the press is, by lily-white, pasty-faced men. That’s what Toni Morrison — the coiner of the expression itself — told us. Morrison told us that widespread press abuse was the reason… Bill Clinton deserved the title!
But… Barack Obama received only fawning, white-glove, adoring, loving, tender coverage from all the dominant media of the day. For eight looooong, cringe-inducing, eye-rolling, stomach-turning years.
Barack Obama, plainly, was not the First Black President.
“President Trump is, of course, cooperating mightily with the effort to make him the villain of the piece — his low character, tough-guy strutting, and habitual Twitter buffoonery all go a long way toward that. The Democrats are lucky to have him as a foil. Otherwise, they might be made to really seriously answer some uncomfortable questions, such as: Who has been in charge in Minneapolis lo these many years? Philadelphia? Chicago? Detroit? Los Angeles? Cleveland? Dallas? To the extent that governance matters, how is it that the situations in these communities is to be understood as anything other than the result of practically exclusive Democratic political power? And if Democratic political power is insufficient to turn things around in these places, then why is the answer to the current crisis more Democratic political power?“
After the announcement, Trump went off-script and suggested that, “Perhaps George Floyd would be looking down and smiling at the initiatives for better policing that he was launching.”
Owens differed only a bit, by suggesting that, most likely, Mr. Floyd would be looking up.
Until you people who hate Trump so much answer at least — again, seriously, thoughtfully, rationally — those questions, then you have no credibility. You’re just spouting.
Trump federalized the effort, effectively making the states responsible for their own responses. This was EXACTLY the right thing to do, because it guaranteed 50 different responses, of which one would be the best, and would serve as a guide for future such crises. Let’s not forget that this is the FIRST such crisis we’ve faced with the ability to do instant communications. That was a particularly forward-thinking thing for Trump to do. In the beginning he gets an “A+”, because you can’t have an “A++.”
After that he gets a “C+”
This is a Facebook thread, and I think that the sentiments contained in it are completely defensible.
Note: I didn’t write this, I’m just passing it along. Much of it makes a lot of sense.
You and I both know what Twitter, or its basic communications unit, the “tweet” is: a quick, off-the-cuff pronouncement, confined to 288 (or so, if I recall correctly) characters, about… things. Current events, thought-of-the-day, the latest Boston Red Sox news, the weather. You name it.
Well, what about that? Why is it such a big deal that Trump uses Twitter extensively to express himself? The thing here is that Presidents don’t talk “off-the-cuff.” Except, that is, for Trump… who does..
And, presto-changeo, just like that, Presidents do talk off the cuff! And will, for the foreseeable future. From now on, Presidents will have an entire team devoted to using Twitter, or “off-the-cuff talking,” most effectively to take the greatest advantage of it.
In response to Tara Reade, Democrats could do two things they desperately want to do, by simply loudly and ostentatiously getting behind the Tara Reade allegations of sexual assault:
#1: They could — risk free and cost-free! — remake the shattered illusion of their being the party concerned with women’s lives and well-being, and…
#2: Get rid of the Biden albatross. (Joebatross?)
Remember: the Democrats are betting everything on the hope that their deepest-held belief — that Democrats voters are idiots — is true.
So, back to the main point: the Democrats made the rules of this vile game, with en eye to short-term political gains (the defeat of people like Clarence Thomas, Trump and Brett Kavanaugh, among others), completely ignoring the potential down-the-road implications of setting up a game with rules they knew they couldn’t follow.
Socialism is a primitive system. It’s the system that has prevailed around the world since caveman days. It’s not interested in progress; it’s not interested in solving problems; it’s not interested in improving things; it’s not interested in making advances; it is interested in obtaining and keeping power. That’s why every country based on Socialism becomes a primitive hellhole, whose inhabitants are reduced to living like beasts, surviving from day-to-day by begging, selling their own bodies, fraud or violence.
It’s why there’s a coronavirus emergency today.
A half-witted wanker — not so young or fresh-faced — was for a while the leading candidate — the odds-on favorite! — to head the Democrat Party in the upcoming Presidential election!
Nor is it insignificant that the Democrats recognized the problems with the half-witted wanker, and have firmly and resoundingly stated that a mumbling, incoherent geriatric sliding into dementia, is their real guy.
“Heh heh. We were just kidding about the raving, dopey, fatuous, loony-eyed, boneheaded, Socialist tosser. We really meant the senile, rambling, incoherent, delusional, old dork! You know, the one who couldn’t find Florida on a map of… Florida.“
Did anyone really doubt that in the case of such a crisis, left-wing people and institutions would fail miserably? Thinking back, how would a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton have handled any of this differently? How would the press have covered her efforts?
Well, the crisis arrived, and — surprise, surprise! — all the left-wing people and institutions — around the world! — failed miserably.
Here’s the important point: Absent something like this horrendous coronavirus crisis, Trump was going to cruise to re-election, and the Democrat Party was staring in the face of the destruction of their agenda for the next 50 years.
If there’d been no coronavirus event, the Democrats would have had to come up with one.
It’s absolutely certain that the Democrats are crossing their fingers that this is the thing that will bring Trump down.
It’s also absolutely certain that the Democrats will try to make this the thing that brings Trump down. They had no chance of it without this crisis… and they knew it.
The Left makes no sense, and if you’re paying attention, you can spring the traps they always set for themselves. You have to understand this, though, and you have to be ready for it, and watching for it, and… you have to spring the trap.
Here’s what Biden said (roughly): “If I’m nominated to run against President Trump, then I’ll pick a woman as my running mate.” Did you see it?
The obvious next question is: “Mr. Vice-President, would you select someone who was born a man, but who now ‘identifies’ as a woman?“
There’s no right answer to that one, and that’s the very kind of trap that the Democrats always set for themselves… if, that is, you’re paying attention.
Conservatives are telling everyone, and themselves, that the Left is just okay with losing the Presidency, what they don’t want is to lose significantly in the down-ballot races. This is why they’ve maneuvered to get Bernie Sanders out of the race. They hypothesize further that with Sanders in the race, the Democrats were convinced they’d lose heavily everywhere across the country.
This is almost all incorrect.
It’s hard to put into words the catastrophe the Democrats were envisioning — before the coronavirus, that is.
Democrats were envisioning the very real possibility that Trump wins re-election and that the doddering Ginsburg and Breyer would leave their posts on the Supreme Court, unable to make it through four more long years of Trump. Both Associate Justices are ancient, but both are perfectly predictably left-wing in all the positions they take on the Court. That means that “Conservatives” (really: Constitutionalists) hold an extremely tenuous 5-4 margin on the court today (Roberts-Alito-Thomas-Kavanaugh-Gorsuch vs. Sotomayor-Kagen-Breyer-Ginsburg).
It appears that the Democrat Party will nominate for the presidency a blithering idiot, a doddering old fool, a senile, muddle-headed, addled, decrepit, old geezer who hasn’t strung together two coherent sentences in more than thirty years… even if one of those sentences was: “Hi!”
Bernie Sanders, the senile old Bolshie-loving, half-witted crackpot… is the leading contender for the Democrat Party’s nomination to run for President in 2020. I defy you to show me anything else that is more emblematic of that party’s final descent into decrepitude and madness. A descent that started, by the way, long, long ago, when it was the party of slavery, Jim Crow, Eugenics, segregation and more. Now it’s the party of death at both ends of life, of anti-semitism, of terrorism, of Socialism, of corruption, of senile leadership, of censorship, shout-downs, street thugs, goons and fascists, of grifting, mooching, and decadence, of worse than intellectual laziness: intellectual slovenliness.
About those failings — slavery, Jim Crow, Eugenics, love for Socialism-Fascism-Naziism, segregation and more — they’re symptoms of disease and degradation. For any party to survive, it must expel these things. If you study history, you see that the Democrat Party has never renounced those aspects of its past, as the Republicans did. Remember, the Republicans publicly renounced the John Birch Society, Richard Nixon, and nearly every one of its elected officials who ever might have shown even the remotest possibility that he was tainted by anything. (cf, eg: Trent Lott, et al) A body riddled with these intellectual and social diseases cannot survive forever. The only way the Democrats have survived this far is by denying these important parts of their past were ever in their past, and then by projecting them, with the assistance of a sheeplike media corps, onto Republicans, who had always opposed them. The problem for the Democrats is that the rot was still in them, and it ate out any substantive core for the Dems to fall back on, any solid foundation of ideas or beliefs, any core tenets from which to construct intelligent, rational platforms and campaigns. They have nothing left but the litany you’ve all heard by now: Racist! Sexist! Homophobe! Transphobe! Islamophobe! You hate women! You hate minorities! You hate children! (says the party of abortion), You’re all meanies! All that meaningless, substanceless codswallop left an open field for idiots like Bernie Sanders.
The Dems are saying: We’ll see your eccentric, unpredictable wildcard, and raise you one psychotic, unhinged, bolshie-loving nutjob… Your move!
The larboard trajectory of the American Democrat Party is already set in place. That happened long ago. The party is like a ballistic missile pointed hard-left, and the colonel, long ago (in 1972? in 1916?) hollered, “Fire!”
I swear, the Clintons are like herpes! You think you’re rid of ’em, then there they are again the next morning, glaring malevolently at you from the mirror — a big, angry, sodden, runny, putrescent, crusty, yellow-capped pustule on the bottom lip of America.
The ranks of Famous Democrats are stuffed to overflowing with dull-eyed, vacant-stared, slack-jawed, drooling, slope-headed, bony eye-ridged, half-wits occupying seats of dizzying power many years after their last brain cell, gave up the ghost after having been cruelly soaked in drugs, alcohol or leftism.
My friends and I have been buzzing about it all week! Who aren’t you going to wear tonight. Personally, there are … Continue reading So Excited to Miss the Oscars Tonight!
Biden’s toast — It looks like Bloomberg — Sanders is leading — Pete Buttigieg is Alfred E. Newman — Elizabeth Warren is the mediocrity she appears to be — Sanders’ problem is that everyone pulls their punches with him, because no one wants to be seen as picking on the crazy person — Because of Democrats’ forbearance toward Bernie Sanders, you have half-wits in Congress like AOC et al. — AOC et al. not as smart as a tardigrade! — The Iowa Caucuses! — An idiot doesn’t know he’s an idiot; because he’s an idiot — AOC is an idiot — Idiots can be evil too.
When Mitt Romney announced that he was going to vote guilty, he provided all the cover any wavering Dems needed in order to be, well… Dems. Now, they can pretend that the impeachment voting was “bipartisan.”
However, the once wavering Dems now have to face their voters. And there’s a very good possibility that Doug Jones of Alabama just signed his own political death warrant.
Hillary remains, and will always remain, royally ticked off at Bernie. So ticked off that she might do something that goes so utterly and completely against everything she is, in the very fiber of her being: tell the truth.
Don’t forget, Hillary still wants to be at the top of the heap on the Left. Like any top, or formerly top, leftist, she continues to crave power.
Have you ever noticed how leftists never just… go away? They lose, but they continue to scratch and claw and scrabble for power. It’s who and how they are. It’s because power is the thing they crave above all else, and that’s what makes them leftists to the core.
Let’s face it, Hillary still wants to be the President. However, since she can’t be, she still wants to grab and wield as many levers of power as she can. And, howlingly obviously, she still wants her 2016 loss to be someone else’s fault.
For the past almost four years, the Democrats have cheated you out of what you voted for.
For the past almost four years, the Democrats have defrauded you out of what you voted for. And you paid them to do it to you!
The founders knew that every governmental entity would try to grab more and more power over time. In one of the most revolutionary notions of recorded history, they also recognized this as a serious problem. Accordingly, they made it a sacred responsibility of each branch of government to… obstruct the others.
A friend of this blog saw our recent piece and insisted that we post the summary paragraph as its own post, under the “It’s Worth Repeating” category.
Here’s a summary of the entire impeachment fraud: A whole mess of Democrats, with matches in one hand and gallon cans of gasoline in the other, are all standing in front of the burning house shouting, “Trump lit that fire!” And the media, bless their corrupt, little IQ-deprived souls, are nodding sagely to each other, intoning, “Yep. Must’ve been Trump who lit that fire!”
It’s indisputable that, in the context of the Iran nuclear “deal,” the Iranian régime played the Obama administration for a bunch of fools. It wasn’t difficult; the Obama administration was peopled mainly by idiots, led by its egomaniacal idiot-in-chief. The Iran nuclear “deal” was cobbled together by corrupt, left-wing idiots on the American side and, on the Iranian side, by amoral baboons who realized full well that they were negotiating with idiots. What chance, really, did it have of being something good or positive? More to the point, what chance did the deal actually have of curbing Iran’s nuclear power ambitions?
No chance of either.
Tulsi Gabbard is the least horrible of all the Democrat candidates for President… and she’s horrible.
If any top Democrat were President today, Qassem Soleimani — bloodthirsty terrorist, and the murderer of hundreds (thousands?) of Americans — would be alive today, comfortable and worry-free, and eagerly anticipating many more worry-free years of killing Americans like you and me..
How about: “Abolitionist?” We are, after all. And we do see parallels between chattel slavery and the crushing burden of government regulation, intrusion and intervention into the lives of American citizens. And, needless to say, the words “abolitionist” and “abolitionism” have noble traditions in Western Civilization. So, that’s my leading contender so far. Furthermore, let’s face it, the label “Abolitionist” absolutely belongs to the Republican Party, since the Democrat Party rejected the abolition of slavery… while the Republican Party embraced abolitionism entirely. If the Democrats object, tell ’em to take a hike. “Abolitionism” — as a concept — and therefore the word itself, absolutely belongs to the Republican Party.
I am an Abolitionist!
We can be all nice and civilized to them… after we beat them. Kind of like how in World War II we bombed the crap out of Dresden, Hamburg and Tokyo. The régimes in Nazi Germany and Tokyo needed to go away, and the amputations needed to be cauterized. So they were. Then we were nice, very nice actually, with the populations of those countries after the war.
That was, and remains, the only morally correct, strategically effective way to treat hellishly barbarous régimes and terrorist organizations.
Our kind of generalized understanding that politicians are amoral scoundrels and mountebanks, along with our expectation that they act like decent, honorable, public-spirited public servants, are perfectly mutually exclusive things.
How is it somehow worse that Trump actually lives up to our general expectations of politicians, but it’s better that Barack Obama was a smooth, graceful, eloquent, persuasive… gangster?
Let’s face it: the so-called “impeachment” has at least the following component: the desire to be able to refer to Trump as “disgraced President Trump,” and “the disgraced President.” You’ll see that, from now on, this word will make its way frequently into Democrat/Socialist campaign speeches. This is further proof that the Left has long been reduced to silly word games to try to bamboozle the American people.
The Democrats propose to impeach President Trump on the basis of  a poorly-formed, amorphous opinion and  a nonsense term that contains a left-handed acknowledgement that he was… doing his job.
If Trump is re-elected, the Left faces the loss of the senile Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as well as that doddering, reliably left-wing old fool, Stephen Breyer. The Democrats face the very bleak possibility of a series of sensible, intelligent Supreme Court decisions for as far as their dim eyes and brains can see.
Trump has a massive “trump” card in his pocket: The economy has absorbed the “trade war” between the United States and China, with few ill effects. If Trump and China were to strike a deal, the stock market would rise 5,000 to 7,000 points nearly overnight, fattening the retirement and bank accounts of tens of millions of Americans. Trump II would be unstoppable, and the Dems know it. Continue reading The Great Charade

The Left is so thoroughly unaccustomed to having someone practice the Reverse Golden Rule on them (our coinage: do unto them as they have done unto you — but a lot harder!) that they have no idea how to react to it. They simply go into frenzy mode and do and say the same stupid things over and over and over again — only louder and more frenziedly. What was that famous pop-psychology definition of “crazy” again?
In what’s generally a pretty good essay, Nicholas Kristof, a card-carrying leftist in good standing, shows that he almost understands what’s going on — rising thuggery, violence, censorship… fascism — in the thought tendency that he supports. But not quite.
In which we point to an op-ed in the Washington Post that’s an open admission — by someone who knows — that the Left all over the country are brainless apes who are willing to assault people based on nothing more than political differences of opinion.
She’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, sometimes called “AOC” for short, and to call her an idiot is to be kind to her.
And she has the entire American Democrat Party in her control. How is that possible?
Could it be that the Democrat Party is perfectly configured at this moment in history to be led by the most brainless, air-headed bimbo of them all?
Looks that way.
Look: I’m unable to conclude that my neighbor is not a child molester. Therefore, according to the Trump-haters’ “logic,” she’s… a child molester. Right? I mean, I haven’t found any evidence that she’s not, so she must be, right? Right?
Whatever his supposed flaws, the rampant accusations and speculation that shrouded Trump’s presidency, even before it began, ultimately have proven unfounded. Just as Trump said all along. Yet, each time Trump said so, some of us in the media lampooned him. We treated any words he spoke in his own defense as if they were automatically to be disbelieved because he had uttered them. Some even declared his words to be “lies,” although they had no evidence to back up their claims.
Wait, wait! I know! Let’s report on, say, all the tattoos, or anything else that might indicate the political proclivities of all violent criminals or potential violent criminals who come through the criminal justice system!
The federal government has no business sticking its voluminous, snot-dripping, pimple-pocked, grease-beslimed, bulbous nose into American education (she said, stating the obvious).

“Consuming many media sources, learning to think critically, then combining numerous media sources with finely-honed critical thinking, to become ACTUALLY informed,” is a nice summary of “The Basic Responsibility of All American Citizens.” If all American citizens were to take this responsibility seriously, the Democrat Party’s electoral viability would evaporate overnight.
