All I Want for Christmas 2019

Four years ago, I had to listen to every poll, every pundit telling me that Trump wouldn’t really run.  Then he would be finished after the comments he made in the first debate.  Then he would be out by Super Tuesday.  Then he couldn’t win the Nomination.  And finally, Hillary was so far ahead that it would be a landslide.

Then I had to stay up all election night to laugh at the hilarious Hillary backers screaming and crying and threatening to kill themselves.  Good times, good times.

This year I’m going to cut to the chase.  Even the New York Times and the Cook Report are coming as close as they can to admitting that all the Midwest states that gave Donald Trump the presidency last time are already set up to repeat the experience again. https://cookpolitical.com/index.php/analysis/national/national-politics/its-2016-all-over-again

I’m not going to worry about the President winning re-election, that’s a given.  What I want to focus on is whether the 2020 compilation video of screaming crying Democrat voters will be as good as the 2016 one.  It won’t be easy.  Rachel Maddow, Miley Cyrus, that crazy blue haired girl who swears she’s going to die unless someone fixes this.  Such memories.

I remember after the 2016 election I was quite busy at work for several weeks so I didn’t have a chance to absorb all the Democrat reactions that were captured on the internet.  But after Christmas I had some time off and I went back and looked at these reactions.  I confess I laughed so hard I think I bruised some ribs.  But it was well worth it.  I was euphoric for a month.

So now I want that feeling back.  But how do I get through a whole year before it can happen?  Well, my only hope is a string of Durham indictments during the holiday season.  A couple around Thanksgiving and then a bunch more between Christmas and New Year would be about right.

I know, I know I sound pretty mean.  But think about all the Trump associates like General Flynn, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone who were railroaded and terrorized by a witch-hunting mob of prosecutors who knew it was all made up.  What do you suppose would be poetic justice for that kind of behavior?  How about being frog-marched out of their homes at 3 am in front of the rolling video cameras of a tipped off journalist?  How about being cross-examined under oath and being forced to choose between a plea bargain that puts them behind bars for several years and facing a jury trial where they might end up with a twenty-year sentence?

If the shoe were suddenly on the other foot do you suppose it might give them pause and possibly convince them to turn state’s evidence and rat on Loretta Lynch or John Brennan or James Clapper?  It would be fun to find out.

So that’s what I’m asking Santa Claus for this year.  James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr behind bars.  It doesn’t seem like too much.  After all I’ve been a good boy.

The Pollsters Admit Trump Will Win With the Same Coalition

You can actually hear the pain in the author’s voice when he writes that the Midwest voters today are still the ones who elected President Trump in 2016 and they will elect him again in 2020.

Sucks being a Dem presidential candidate or pollster this year too.

A Champion of the Common Man for what Ails the American Republic

Last Tuesday I wrote a post about awakened Christians and what practical steps they could take to finally fight back.  The inimitable War Pig commented back, “In other words, they need a modern-day Martin Luther.”  And that really got me thinking.  The Right has been wandering in the desert for thirty years and only saw any success when Donald Trump appeared.  Are we just waiting for the right man to come along to start a modern-day cultural reformation?

America has known several religious revivals in her history but it seems this will have to be something different.  It’s not a religious revival it’s more like a societal purge.  Instead of just Martin Luther we need another Andrew Jackson thrown in for good measure.  What is needed is a Normal Man’s Revolt.  The societal authorities have led us down a rabbit hole and we’ve come out in Wonderland.  A Wonderland where everything is backward, upside down and inside out.

But we know the things that are wrong and we can push back on those things.  We want our freedom back again.  Our positive and negative freedoms both.  We don’t want the government telling us who we must and mustn’t hire, promote, fire, play golf with or bake cakes for.  What we can or can’t say.  We don’t want them telling us how to raise our kids or where they have to go to school.  We don’t want them spying on us.  We don’t want them giving away our money to foreigners or people who don’t want to work.  We don’t want the government to reward companies for exporting jobs to China.

And we certainly don’t want them telling us that a man in a dress is a woman.  Or that an eighty-pound four-foot eleven-inch woman is a Navy Seal.  And we don’t want them to force our churches to recognize practices that contradict the teachings of their faith.  We need a modern-day Moses to lead us back to the Promised Land and by promised land I mean sanity.

We need someone to step forward and have the courage to speak the truth.  It’s time to tell the social justice scolds in the Media, the tech companies, the schools and the corporate HR departments that we don’t believe what they’re saying and we aren’t going to play by their rules anymore.  It’s going to take a preacher.  He’s going to have to preach the gospel of liberation.  Liberation from all these petty tyrants who collectively have left us in chains.  He’s got to stir the people up and give them hope and unite them.  President Trump wants to be that man.  I hope he succeeds.  Because the need for such a hero is desperate.  Someone must fill it or we will become a nation of serfs.

The surprising thing is that once the truth comes out it will be like a landslide.  For decades people have been intimidated into silence, afraid of losing their jobs, their families, their freedom.  But if someone just once speaks the truth from a big stage with a big megaphone the dam will burst and there will be a tidal wave of truth.  Just like when Donald Trump was brave enough to say that illegal immigration wasn’t virtuous but a crime everybody was relieved to see that they weren’t alone.  People will accept the Big Lie because they know the powerful are protecting it.  But if once a brave voice shouts from the rooftops that the emperor has no clothes then everyone will laugh and put an end to the charade.

We need a champion and a leader and we need him now.  Support President Trump in every way you can.  He is our best hope to restore sanity to this nation.

 

The Unique Value of the Trump Presidency

If you are toting up the accomplishments of the Trump presidency, different groups will emphasize different things.  If you’re a Constitutionalist then you will value most the appointment of so many federal judges, and most critically, Supreme Court justices by President Trump.  If your liveliest fear is the loss of American manufacturing jobs to China then the tariff negotiations going on with Mexico and China are your favorite Trump initiatives.  If the tidal wave of illegal immigration is what you point to as the existential threat to United States then “build that wall” is your choice.  And if you happen to be a struggling young man trying to support or start a family then the booming economy is the most important thing.

Well, all these things are important and all these things should be acknowledged and celebrated by our side of the political divide.  But there is actually a much more important aspect to the presidency of Donald Trump that should be emphasized.  He doesn’t despise us.

Think about that.  The last time the White House had a President, either Democrat or Republican that didn’t loath us either secretly or openly was Ronald Reagan.  That was thirty years ago.  I was still a young man.  That’s more than a generation ago.  Think of that, all of the people under fifty have no adult memory of a time when the government wasn’t trying to subvert the values and even the interests of the majority of the people they led.  Sometimes we knew this was the case.  Clinton and Obama clearly showed by their actions like, “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” and advocacy for same sex marriage that they rejected the values and opinions of the American public.  But maybe more damaging was the hidden opinions behind the façade of conservatism that George Bush and his son held.  They never missed a chance to stab their constituencies in the back whenever it would be most damaging.

Each tailored domestic and international policies that drained the life blood of the working class away, both figuratively and literally.  Each disdained to protect the social conservative groups that they claimed to belong to and instead favored the progressive elements of society whenever a choice was presented.  And both were useless in a political fight.

Compare this to Donald Trump.  Both during his candidacy and during the whole of his term in office he has taken our side.  He has not denounced the normal people who live in this country.  He has championed our causes and at great cost politically he has resisted the voices even in his own administration and party that exhort him to condemn us.  He never puts distance between himself and the least powerful or the least polished of us.  In fact, he sounds more like us than some of us do.  He doesn’t fill his speeches with graduate school rhetoric.  He talks like a guy who worked in the construction industry in New York City thirty years ago.  He brags, mocks our enemies, gloats over his successes and their failures and drives them insane.  He doesn’t give up.  He fights and, best of all, he wins.  He gives us a voice.

What is all that worth?  Everything.  Having your guy in charge, even when we are taking fire from the combined weaponry of the Democrats, the Media, Silicon Valley, the Deep State, the Churches, the Schools, the LGBTQ Mafia, Hollywood and even Wall Street and the Chamber of Commerce is worth more to us than you can imagine.  Think for just a minute where we would currently be if Hillary Clinton were president.  Hell, even imagine where we would be if JEB! were President.

For me all those things I mentioned above are great, judges and jobs, tariffs and walls.  But what gives me hope and boosts my morale is having someone who sounds like me telling Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and James Comey and Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren and Barack and Michelle Obama that they’re fake news and he’s the President and go ahead and try to change that.

Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he’s a leader.  He’s the head of our gang.  He’s the one who makes sure we don’t get stepped on by the other gangs.  Of course, this isn’t some school yard in Brooklyn and we aren’t a local stickball team but the theory is the same.  He looks out for his own.  If you’re anyone who isn’t part of a class protected by the current progressive system then Donald Trump is the only one who has your back.  And he isn’t doing this without risk to his life, his freedom, his material possessions and the well-being of his associates, friends and family.  He is the biggest target in the world and the most powerful people in the world hate him and will go after him for the rest of his life.  Kind of a big deal.

So, what is the value of his presidency to me?  What is it worth to you to feel as you do now as opposed to how you felt in the waning days of the Obama presidency while staring down the barrel of the Hillary presidency straight ahead?  I can tell you what it’s worth to me.   Priceless.

 

 

Remainers Allow General Election.  It May be the Last thing They Ever Do in Parliament.

After forcing Boris Johnson to extend the Brexit waiting period yet again to January 31st, the Remainers may have just signed their own political death warrants.  The Tories, with the cooperation of the Labor Party were able to pass a bill calling for a General Election on December 12th.

Currently Boris Johnson’s personal popularity is extremely high.  And the popularity of the Tories is also strong.  They currently lead Labor 37% to 25% as the two largest parties.  Add in the 10% that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party controls and it’s practically a majority without the necessity of coalition building.  Add to this the anger by even Laborites at the dirty tricks that the Remainers have used to block Brexit and we have the makings of a popular revolt.

I imagine that Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage will need to coordinate their efforts to ensure that the Tories who have remained faithful to the Brexit promise are spared any Brexit Party competition and only Remainers and Labor districts are targeted for replacement.  I imagine Farage will start by selecting all the districts that were represented by Tories that were thrown out of the party for voting against the Hard Brexit last month.  But he may have an even larger prize with the districts that voted for Brexit in 2016 but have a Labor MP that voted against Brexit this year.  That could turn a small electoral majority into a landslide for the Pro-Brexit parties.

I have to confess I’m shocked that the Labor Party agreed to this election.  It seems like an unforced error.  I know there is an element of risk for the Tories.  Electorates can be fickle but I think the upside for them is immense.  With a well-orchestrated campaign attacking the shenanigans that the Remainers committed and playing to the British national pride I believe this will be the chance to have a Pro-Brexit majority in Parliament and provide the right environment to make the Conservative Party actually conservative again.  It will also allow them to shed their image as globalists and steal the populist mantle from Labor.

It is sad that Boris wasn’t able to fulfill his promise to leave the EU by Halloween but he has redeemed himself by ensuring that the British voters will get to have the final say on Brexit.  And based on the date of the election it looks like it could be considered an early Christmas present for the Britons and a good start for 2020.

If you look back to 2016 it was the Brexit victory in the UK that preceded and almost announced the way for the even more astonishing Trump electoral victory over the Wicked Witch and the Republican Dwarfs.

It would seem almost poetic justice if achieving Brexit with a truly conservative Parliamentary majority is the opening act for President Trump to crush the Resistance under the heel of William Barr and achieve re-election by a landslide.  If only we could imitate that venerable old English custom of installing traitors like Comey and Clapper and Brennan in the Tower of London and provide them with the just desserts they truly deserve.

2019 – 2020 is Going to Be an Important Judicial Year in the Supreme Court

A number of important cases are on the docket at the Supreme court this fall.

This year the Supreme Court will have the chance to rule on:

  • The constitutionality of Louisiana’s Abortion Law mandating an abortionist have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
  • Whether New York City’s ban on transporting a licensed, locked and unloaded handgun to a home or shooting range outside city limits is consistent with the Second Amendment, the commerce clause and the constitutional right to travel.
  • Whether the temporary DACA program can be allowed to expire.
  • Whether Kansas is allowed to identify illegal aliens by their obvious documentation and act on this.
  • Whether homosexuality is a protected class under employment discrimination laws.
  • Whether transgender status is a protected class under the employment discrimination laws.

Putting aside for a moment the health status of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, we will have the chance to see whether John Roberts is an honest man or a stooge.  Something like the DACA program is a clear-cut case of a temporary law that has expired.  To extend it would be an obvious act of judicial trespass onto the prerogatives of the Executive and Legislative branches of government.  If Roberts uses his vote to legislate from the bench then we know he is a Deep State creature either voluntarily or due to some kind of blackmail.  Likewise, with the NYC gun transport ban this is a clear violation of the Second Amendment and upholding the ban would make Roberts’ status clear.

As for the homosexual and transgender cases, those will be even more transparent markers of where he stands.  Supposedly only Justice Kennedy was responsible for the outrage that was the gay marriage decision.  If somehow Roberts comes out in favor of either of these protections then it will be obvious that he was a plant all along.

If it turns out that Roberts is indeed a creature of the Left then it becomes even that much more urgent that President Trump appoint one or more conservative justices to the Supreme Court.

So, returning to the question of Ginsberg’s health I stated during her last cancer eruption that I would be shocked if she didn’t retire before April.  To be blunt, she is currently experiencing the results of metastatic cancer from one of her previous tumors.  Whether the cells are originally pancreas, colon or lung cancer they have obviously migrated out of the original site and are now showing up in new organs.  The question of whether these cells have already migrated to the liver is probably what will determine how long she has.  And also, to slow down the spread of the metastases, chemotherapy will be needed and this is a woman in her late eighties.  How is she supposed to support the side effects that include neurological damage and still sit on the Supreme Court and decide the legal fate of the nation?

Hopefully she will elect to spend her last few months with her loved ones as anyone would in that position.  At that point President Trump will appoint a reliable conservative justice and put an end to Roberts’ veto on conservative judicial decisions.  But while these are important legal battles, even more urgent is a Supreme Court decision to end all forms of affirmative action, whether sex or race based.  The glaring anti-constitutional nature of these programs has been long recognized by the court but has always been spared as being a necessary temporary measure to correct past inequities.  Any honest observer would admit that the cure is now worse than the disease and it’s time to save the patient from his treatment.  Whether this will come up for review next year or the year after, sooner than later the Supreme court will need to address this most egregious civil rights atrocity.

President Trump Has a Very Good Day

I watched President Trump announce the successful operation that eliminated al-Baghdadi.  I was struck by just how elated he sounded.  Apparently, this was something that he valued very highly and the superlative laden but well-deserved praise that he heaped on the special forces and other military personnel underscored how proud he was of their accomplishment.  President Trump also praised the Turkish, Russian, Syrian and Iraqi governments for wisely showing restraint when he informed them that he was sending an air force through their territories.

Of course, the President never misses an opportunity to throw a punch at his adversaries so when he also praised the Intelligence department personnel for the excellent job they had done, he made sure he mentioned that there were other intelligence personnel who were doing things that were less than praiseworthy.  And when he talked about the secrecy needed to protect the mission, he added that he kept Congress out of the loop because of their reputation for leaking secrets.

And when President Trump describes the final moments of the ISIS leader, that is when the discussion he provides differs from anything a typical politician would deliver.  Listen to his description, “He died a coward — crying, whimpering, screaming, and bringing three kids with him to die a certain death. And he knew the tunnel had no end. I mean, it was a — it was a closed-end — they call it a closed-end tunnel. Not a good place to be.”  His plain spoken and impolite way of describing his enemies is off-putting to many people who were raised to be polite even to monstrous individuals.  I guess I see what bothers them.  But I see that as their problem not his.  President Trump doesn’t believe in false modesty or misplaced politeness.  Al-Baghdadi was a monster.  The brutal murders of thousands of people, many recorded and televised on the internet are proof that this man was either completely insane or a remorseless murderer who valued human life not at all.  The fact that President Trump went out of his way to insult al-Baghdadi for cowardice is fitting.

After watching the interview, I followed up by watching an interview that Lindsay Graham did discussing the al-Baghdadi operation.  Despite Graham’s initial criticism of President Trump’s withdrawal of US troops from the Syrian “safe zone,” the Senator now sees the value in moving US soldiers away from a flash point between Turkish, Syrian and Kurdish forces and instead position them where they could provide strategic value without making themselves a target for any potential provocateurs in the region.  It’s remarkable how often the President’s positions start out being disparaged by the experts and pundits but end up accepted because they work.

This was a good day and despite all the impeachment hullaballoo, it was a good week too.  News from the NY Times that Durham’s investigation has been elevated to a criminal investigation seems to confirm that the long wait for results of all the evidence that Durham has been sifting through will soon be over and indictments will be forthcoming.  The nervousness displayed by Clapper and company tells me something too.  I don’t think they believed it would ever move forward to where we are now.

The rumor that James Baker has agreed to provide Durham with cooperative testimony while less certain is potentially the bigger story.  If one of the big or medium fishes in the cabal decides to provide state’s evidence it will be devastating for everyone on the Left.  That includes cabalists, the Media and probably some members of Congress that have been in on this up to their elbows.  While I’m not convinced that the rumor is true, the timing of it would make a lot of sense.  Finding out that you will be required to provide sworn testimony would be terrifying to someone like Clapper who has lied under oath a number of times and now would be forced to reconcile his various inconsistent testimony under penalty of a perjury conviction.

So, the past week was extremely good and I expect next week to be even better.  But what we’re all waiting for is Durham and Barr to get the party started.

 

 

If You Have Any Interest in the Dissident Right and What They Believe Read This.

Awhile back I linked to a post by Michael Anton in which he reviewed a self-published book called Bronze Age Mindset.  Well the author of that book was given a chance to address the content of the post over at Claremont’s American Mind webpage.  I’ve linked to it below.  If you are at all interested in the dissident community that was the on-line heart of Donald Trump’s support in 2016 then you may find this article very informative.  I did.  The pseudonymous author (Bronze Age Pervert) is extremely persuasive in laying out his case for the need, or rather, the unavoidable certainty of the collapse of the current liberal worldview.  Highly recommended read.

 

America’s Delusional Elite Is Done

 

 

The Democrat Donors are Starting to Panic Over the 2020 Field of Candidates

The Big Money donors are a powerful force in Democrat politics and lately when they get together they can be heard saying, “isn’t there anyone better than this to bring into the race?”  Apparently the top three candidates, Biden, Warren and Sanders don’t inspire much confidence in the bag men.

And who can blame them?  Warren and Sanders are communists who, among other things, have signed onto healthcare proposals that promise to eliminate all private health insurance.  After the debacle of Obamacare even lefties know that the majority of Americans will view this as a deal breaker.  In addition, several of these donors represent the Tech Giants and Warren has been vowing to break up Google and Facebook so you can imagine they’re not thrilled with the prospect of paying through the nose for someone who wants to put them out of business.

And then there’s Creepy Uncle Joe.  Even if you refuse to believe that his crooked son was obviously cashing in on his father’s influence as Vice President during the Ukraine debacle it would be impossible to miss the fact that Joe is working with less than a full deck of cards at this point.  The money men are probably dreading the prospect of a general election debate between Joe the Human Gaffe Machine and the Trump Buzzsaw.

As for the rest of the field of midgets, none of them are polling above three percent in the polls.  And the ones that are even slightly less crazy than the front-runners are even lower down than three percent.  They’re in the fractional percentage range.

This has spawned panicky calls to draft Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, John Kerry or even Oprah Winfrey.

I fully expect that during this holiday season a call will go out to draft Santa Claus if he can be convinced to renounce Christianity.

This is a delicious moment.  With Hillary Clinton denouncing one of the candidates, Tulsi Gabbard, as a Russian agent I can imagine a scenario where the Trump campaign donates money to a Draft Hillary PAC to ensure she gets her chance to do the maximum damage to the whole Democrat establishment.

Seriously, many people thought that the 2020 Democrat field was a sacrificial offering intended to eliminate the old and insane to clear the decks for 2024.  If that is the case, mission accomplished.  If the general election turns out to be the debacle it’s shaping up to become, the Dems may rethink the whole resistance thing and put a brave face on a “loyal opposition” con.

But what isn’t clear is how much of a coattail effect President Trump can have in the House and Senate.  The Republican boobs in those two august bodies have proven themselves almost superhumanly capable of screwing up all of the opportunities that President Trump has presented them with over the course of his term.  I only hope that some much less-stupid people step forward and present themselves as allies of the President and thereby benefit from his popularity with real people.  Anyway, that’s what I hope.  But my fondest wish is that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan go over to the Democrat side and help them with all the special skills they possess.  That should be enough to give us a supermajority in both houses of Congress.

 

 

Taibbi Mocks the Russophobes on the Left

Matt Taibbi is no fan of President Trump but he is willing to call BS when the Left talks crazy.  Here he points out that Hillary Clinton is talking nonsense when she labels Tulsi Gabbard a Russian Asset.  In fact he says that Hillary is nuts.  How can you not love that?  Then he talks about the rest of the Left’s supposed russophobia.  This is the third article from him I’ve enjoyed. Surprising.  Check it out.

 

Everyone Is a Russian Asset
