So many parallels!
Does this mean that there lurks a Reaganesque figure, waiting in the wings to help lead America out of the Carter-Biden decline, with a massive 49-state landslide Presidential victory in 2024? And, if so, who is that figure?
All evidence seem to point to the conclusion that, left unattended, and absent the hysteria, COVID might have caused a small and temporary up-tick in overall deaths in the world, but that’s about it.
Hardly a “pandemic.” Just another “flu,” like the swine one, or the avian one, of the Spanish one, or the SARS one, or the MERS one, or the H1N1 one… (yes, yes, I know… redundancies and all. Just naming a bunch of names we’ve all heard for: the flu)
Still, no one states the obvious conclusion that everyone should draw from this: The Left recognizes — loudly, publicly and ostentatiously — that they can’t win a real debate on any important issue. So they simply dispatch whatever goons they’ve got hanging around to prevent the debate entirely.
Surely everyone’s also noticed that all goons are leftists, yes?
There are points — legitimate points — to make that run counter to Conservative ideas. Conservative thinking, though, is apparently so far beyond the ken of your average Democrat politician, and many of their voters, that they don’t bother even to try to engage with them.
This is the land of the nutball, half-witted, incoherent, brainless Left. It’s here, and it owns all the levers of power in America.
How can that be? Easy: No country is a steady-state entity… They’re all always headed in some direction or other. If you don’t arrest that direction, and turn it around, you’ll end up at the extreme end of that direction
There is no Trump cult, and there never was.
The Right, with its heavy emphasis on individual responsibility, and individual liberties, and individual rights is overloaded with anti-bodies against any cult-like behaviors or inclinations.
Stalin understood quite well that the myth of STALIN! had grown so far away from any resemblance to reality, and had been constructed by millions of people into such a vast, mountainous presence in everyone’s lives, that it no longer resembled the diminutive, unprepossessing person on whom it was based.
I’m going to say this very gently and in good faith. And I mean it in no hostile way at all. In other words, I believe that the idea that “Trump is evil and must go” is entirely defensible. And I believe it’s wrong. Or at least not a slam dunk, by any means.
The 2020 election was stolen, and it was stolen by a multi-pronged effort that still managed to defeat Trump only by a whisker.
Ignore the reports of disappearing ballots and magically appearing ballots.
The other reports (inside) are indisputably true…
I don’t know about you, but I prefer my news as, you know… news — “Hey! This interesting thing just happened!” — not as pre-written narrative into which some manipulative, scheming bastard, trying to control my perception of things around me*, then fits or fabricates any events he can to support that narrative.
* “Manipulative, scheming bastards, trying to control our perception of things around us” — a nice summary description of today’s media!
I posted this on another forum on October 17th last year. And I meant it then. It received a lot of favorable comment also — some of it national. I wonder what you all think of it in light of the recent demonstrations in Washington.
There’s talk of rushing through an impeachment and removal of Trump. Of arresting him, and even of jailing him for treason… still, I believe, a capital crime.
I do wonder what would have happened if the Dems, and the Left in general, had not been so hideous for the past four years.
What was most striking about this election cycle was the tsunami of accusations of hate, fascism, intolerance, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, denial of rights, corruption and violence coming from the left… all accompanied by a vast wave of hate, fascism, intolerance, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, denial of rights, corruption and violence… also coming from the Left.
Another thing that interested me, as a regular Trump critic, this past election go ’round: I kept hearing from Democrat voters and leftists in general, that Trump was a “dictator,” that his Presidency was a “dictatorship,” that he was a “tyrant,” and that he was “taking away everyone’s rights.”
Okay. What rights? Name one.
Margaret Thatcher said: “The facts of life are Conservative,” to which I countered, “But society’s white noise is leftist.” And it is. It takes a real effort to go against the tsunami of leftist messaging that washes constantly over all Americans, to become only an independent thinker, much less a contrarian.
Who is it REALLY?
• Andrew Jackson?
• Woodrow Wilson?
• Barack Obama?
A public figure is ACTUALLY only as “divisive” or “incendiary” or “controversial” as WE the PEOPLE CHOOSE to be divided or incensed or bothered by him.
OR… as the media decide to hoodwink our collective ovine gluteus maximi into believing that he is.
I’m JUST FINE with making unsubstantiated, unsupported allegations against widely-known public figures. The assumption IS reasonable that others have heard it all before, and are familiar with the background and any supporting FACTS that might buttress the allegations.
However, if then CHALLENGED to DEMONSTRATE that you know the facts behind the allegations, you DO have a moral duty to do that. Else you suggest that you’re merely swallowing uncritically that which the media, who’ve long proven themselves to be dishonest fraud merchants, have been dishing out. Much of the idea “out there” that Trump is evil has EXACTLY that origin.
In other News: Biden supporters report there’s no difference between “senile Joe” and “normal Joe.”
Conservative thinking is challenged, derided, sneered at, condemned… from the moment it appears. When WE do our thinking and our formulations of potential solutions, WE have to PRE-consider the inevitable tsunami of accusations of Racism! Sexism! This-o-phobia! That-o-phobia! You hate children! You hate women! Etc., etc., etc…
When the Left proposes something, they think that the proposal is perfect and complete from the moment of its birth! It requires no further adjustments or tweaking or re-thinking… because all the loud voices in the media and academia and Hollywood and pop culture tell them so.
Bottom line: OUR thinking is stronger, more flexible, more commonsensical, more logical… more tested. If we COMPETE in the war of ideas, we will WIN the war of ideas.
Creepy, Sleepy, Pervy, Senile, Dopey, Gaffy, Uncle Joe is the one the Democrats chose! In 2020’s warped re-telling of the famous fairy tale, he’s all seven dwarves rolled up into one! And Snow Partly-White is his VP pick!
There’s nothing wrong with Joe Biden. He’s the quintessential Democrat… with all the filters removed. What he says — the “black people all think alike” stuff — is exactly what Democrats all think, but would never say out loud.
Or: Dementia improves Democrats.
It’s entirely possible that Biden will be the President, because he absolutely owns the ignoramus vote.

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.
