22OCT2020 – Post Debate Note

Well, it wasn’t what I hoped it would be.  First off the moderator wasn’t more than normally biased.  She slanted all the questions of course but there was even some questions that Biden didn’t like.  And President Trump was actually given close to the chance that Biden got to talk.  And President Trump was allowed to say a good deal about Hunter and the Chinese, Russian and Ukrainian deals.  I think on balance President Trump got the best of it.  He did a good job and made his points.  All good stuff.

But it was no fun.  There were no shouting matches or crying moderators.  All just too normal and boring.  Oh well.

The Hunter Biden Debate

On Thursday President Trump is scheduled to debate Creepy Uncle Joe Biden for the final time.  The Democrats, or more specifically, the part of their organization that runs the debates, has decided that during each candidate’s assigned speaking period they will mute the microphone of his opponent.  Now that’s interesting.  It’s got me thinking, when Toobin thought his microphone was on mute he exposed himself and performed unspeakable acts.  Might not Joe Biden do the same?  And if the moderator reacts to it will Joe just say, “Oh come on man I heard you liked me.”

Another thought I had was this.  If the moderator hears President Trump spilling the beans on Joe Biden’s various crimes might not she be tempted to mute him even though it’s his turn?  I think this might happen.  I’ve got to confess I’m really looking forward to this event.  I think it will be hilarious and possibly amazing.  The previous debate was wonderfully bizarre and based on the set up of the Hunter Biden expose earlier this week I expect the President to unload on this guy with both barrels.

But what everyone wants to know is what else is on the hard drive.  Up till now it’s been pretty straight forward.  But what if they’ve held back some really crazy stuff for the debate and it gets debuted there?  I don’t have any information to that effect but knowing what a showman Trump has always been I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he unleashes a bombshell.

So now you understand why, from my point of view, tomorrow night’s debate is so fascinating.  For all I know Trump has staged things so that Creepy Uncle Joe will be taken directly into custody as he exits the stage.  I mean between Joe and Hunter nothing like this has existed since Tiberius Caesar took Caligula under his wing and showed him how it was done.

But let’s assume instead that nothing like that is going to happen.  This will still be the first Presidential Election Debate within the modern era where one of the candidates and probably actually both candidates will accuse the other of being a criminal, a liar and a traitor right on the stage.  You can’t ask for more drama than that.

Now that our politics will never go back to the mealy-mouthed days of Mitt Romney we at least can look forward to candidates calling each other horrible things out loud and uncovering the dirt that’s always been there but has been hidden from sight by the mutual consent of both parties to shield them from the wrath of the voters should their countless acts of graft and corruption ever be uncovered.  But of course, I’m forgetting, that would require the Justice Department to investigate and prosecute these crimes.  Sort of like investigating the Hunter Biden hard drive that they’ve had in their possession for nine months and did nothing about.  Silly me.

Anyway, tomorrow’s event is must see tv.  Joe will be hopped up on Ritalin and I guess there is some risk that his eyes will start bleeding again and his head might explode.  But that is a risk I am willing to take.  It is my patriotic duty to sit there and laugh uproariously right through every historic moment and then later on play back the best parts for even more laughs.  I should dig out my old copy of I Claudius and re-watch the scenes with Caligula so I’ll have something to compare Hunter to when I do a separate post on him.  Stay tuned.

What Comes After

As we live through what seems like a never-ending series of ever more outrageous assaults on sanity, we might be forgiven for thinking that the lunatics are now in permanent control of the asylum.  But I’m not so sure that is so.

I sense that the madness that’s been unleashed by the Left to undermine the re-election of President Trump is a very desperate gambit.  After all, look at the damage that the Left has done to the areas that are the centers of their control.  New York, Chicago and Los Angeles have been shut down and ravaged by roaming bands of violent lunatics for months.  The small businesses in their states have been bankrupted.  The economies in those places haven’t recovered from the COVID lockdowns and the normal people living in those places have been exposed to the ruthless and arbitrary exercise of violence that the woke mob has been empowered to wield by their elected officials.  And the woke anti-white agenda is now being fully implemented in schools and businesses across the country.

While it is highly unlikely that places like California or New York would flip their political affiliation to the Republicans this year it is much more likely that places like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania will.  Even places like Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico have that potential sometime in the future.  And the reason is not so much that this or that politician is running for office.  It’s that people are beginning to see that they are being played.

If Donald Trump can re-ignite the economy by simply taking a pro-American stance on trade deals and tax incentives that encourage corporations to hire American workers then it is clear that the anemic economy that has been strangling American families for more than half a century is not the inevitable result of the world we live in.  It is a plan that the political and corporate elites have chosen to inflict on us.  They long ago calculated that replacing the middle class with an underclass beholden to them for the crumbs they would provide, would permanently shift the balance of power in this country into their hands.  Bringing in an endless stream of immigrants could be used to lower wage expectations while providing the votes needed to overwhelm populist reaction to the outrages being perpetrated against the citizens.

And with the Democrats and the Republicans in collusion with this plan there was little that Americans could do.  No matter who they voted into office they got the same result.  When the Democrats had the White House, it was socialism and cultural Marxism on steroids.  When the Republicans were there it was foreign wars and slightly disguised socialism and cultural Marxism.  We knew something was wrong but how it was being done wasn’t clear to the average non-progressive man in the street.  All we knew was even when we won, we lost.

But then Donald Trump came along and he pulled back the curtain and showed us the fraud.  He dared to expose the illegal immigration scam and the Anti-American global economy scam that the Republicans were colluding in and people understood.  He got elected and he turned the economy around.  And he was attacked by literally every power center in this country and around the world.  The FBI, CIA, NSA, the State Department, the IRS, the EPA, parts of the leadership of the Armed Forces, all the Blue States like California, New York and their state courts and attorneys general, all the federal court judges appointed by liberals in both parties, Google, Facebook, Twitter, the NY Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, every college faculty and administration, Wall Street, most corporations, the Chinese Communist Party, the European Union, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Nations and every NGO and non-profit organization that fronts for socialist policies.  Even Republican leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan worked against the President’s agenda.  And none of them were able to destroy him and he was able to push through many of his policy goals almost single handedly.  And then the Chinese unleashed a bioweapon on the country and he had to negotiate the insanity of shutting down the United States economy and restarting it again with a lunatic like Anthony Fauci spouting nonsense and undermining any reasonable efforts to find a workable solution to the pandemic.

But when even that wasn’t enough the Left reactivated BLM and Antifa and allowed them to burn down the downtowns of the Democrat controlled cities.  They passed down the talking points to political and corporate mouthpieces and we were lectured to and berated by our betters on the sins against diversity and inclusion that we were all guilty of by birth.  And those who live in blue states know that the propaganda war to shame anyone born white is in full swing.  But I think the jig is up.

I think we have finally reached the point where anyone who isn’t hopelessly stupid or unshakably beholden to the Left is aware that all of this woke nonsense is a pack of pathetic lies.  Cops aren’t roaming the streets looking to murder black people.  George Floyd and whatever other black criminal du jour they find resisting arrest aren’t innocent victims.  At best they are victims of their own criminality that makes them statistically most likely to finally end up in the hands of the rare police officer who is also criminally irresponsible.  America isn’t a hotbed of white supremacists.  Women aren’t victims of discrimination and sexual deviants have been provided with more tolerance than anyone could hope to justify.

I think the result of all this is people aren’t going to be afraid that the Left will think they’re racists, misogynists, homophobes or any other label that basically has been discredited by the excesses of the Left over the last hundred years of shrieking.  No matter what they do the Left is going to call them that anyway.  What is there to lose by at least standing our ground now?  Nothing.

So, the point has been reached.  Intimidation by threatening to call us names like racist won’t work anymore.  It’s all in the open.  Now we’ll find out who is the stronger horse, us or them.  That will determine whether the lunatics get to keep control of the asylum or not.  I’m betting on us.

My Early Christmas List to Santa Trump

Indulge me today in a little game.  I know that anything could happen after November 3rd up to and including the apocalypse.  But just for the sake of this post let’s assume that when the dust clears President Trump is clearly the winner of the election and the Republicans squeak out a win in the Senate and the House.  What would be my wish list for the coming four years of the second Trump administration.  Granted that this is the rosiest of scenarios but it is far from unlikely.  So, grant me the premise.

  • First and foremost, give Barr an ultimatum to either produce the reports of the investigations or resign. Either his staff has found crime committed by the Obama holdovers in the FBI and elsewhere or he has an explanation that covers all the outrages we have seen perpetrated over the last five years.  And regardless of whether Barr is the Attorney General or not it must be a priority to clear all the anti-Trump personnel out of the Justice Department.  Even if that depopulates the department it would be the smartest thing to do.  Reforming the FBI is an extremely important goal.  Defanging that agency would benefit everyone.  It is a weapon that can be brought to bear against any innocent American whenever political expediency calls for it.
  • Another priority is to punish those states that allowed Antifa and BLM to terrorize their citizens. What I would envision would be the feds initiating civil and criminal actions against the governors and mayors who were complicit in the protracted unrest that engulfed the lives of their citizens.  Testimony by all the individuals that feel they were harrowed and their lives disrupted and especially those that were assaulted or whose businesses were destroyed.  These are Americans who were treated like targets of a pogrom.  They were singled out based on the color of their skin.  The President should make it a point of pride to get them justice.  Those governors and mayors should be hounded out of office and prosecuted.
  • The President and Congress need to fully fund and swiftly build the Southern Wall. It is important and it is also a morale builder.  It shows the country that the government is taking their wishes seriously.  It’s what got President Trump elected in the first place.  It should not be forgotten.
  • The President needs to continue to appointing federal judges to all the circuit courts in the country as quickly as the openings occur. The power that a corrupt judiciary is able to wield is apparent from the outrageous actions of the federal judges who have hampered the President throughout his first term.  Eliminating the progressive majorities in the 9th Circuit Court and other progressive strongholds should be a priority for Republican presidents whenever the Senate is in their control.
  • The President needs to install an Attorney General who will employ the RICO statute to defund, prosecute and imprison the leadership and all guilty members of Antifa and BLM. The RICO laws were put in place to demolish the mafia.  Antifa and BLM are criminal organizations that have done incalculable harm in this country.  They need to be crushed.
  • The President needs to punish China for COVID and he needs to end the special relationship that has allowed China to monopolize American commerce for decades. China is at best an adversary.  In a lot of ways, it is our mortal enemy.  It needs to be treated as such.  And any American citizens or corporate entities that conspire with China to our detriment need to be severely punished.
  • And finally, I want him to fire Anthony Fauci. That dope has botched this COVID thing like no one could imagine.  I wouldn’t trust him to run a CVS Drug Store never mind the nation’s health.  He really is a dope.

 

Well that’s enough for this Christmas.  Of course, my first present has to happen way in advance of Christmas just to make the other presents possible.  I want a resounding election victory for the President.  So if that isn’t too much to ask, let’s start there.

Are the Bidens For Real?

This whole Hunter Biden hard drive thing is surreal.    In the video link below there is an interview that Steve Crowder did with Rudy Giuliani (minutes 2 to 19 of the clip).  Now Crowder is a comedian on our side of the political divide and being a comedian he’s a little goofy but the interview clarifies some of the history of this computer hard drive.  Giuliani says that Hunter Biden brought it into the repair shop and signed for it.  When the computer was never paid for and was left for a period that exceeded the allotted time allowed it became the property of the repair shop.  The repair shop owner looked at the contents and realized what he had on his hands and contacted people on the Trump side.  Apparently he was a Republican type.  Now that was a piece of luck.  He made a copy of the hard drive and gave the original to the FBI.

Giuliani also says that when this story broke Hunter Biden’s attorney called up the repair shop and asked for the computer back.  The New York Post is a sensationalist publication.  But it is owned by Rupert Murdoch who has a lot to lose if this were a slanderous hoax.  Giuliani states that the validity of the information must have satisfied Murdoch for this story to go forward.

How does someone like Hunter Biden stay alive in the political environment that exists today?  Who collects videos of himself smoking crack and and having sex with prostitutes and puts it on a computer hard drive and leaves it with a computer expert?  How can all this be?  It seems almost too good to be true for the President and his campaign.  And on the same computer are these damning e-mails from Chinese and Ukrainian officials that document the influence peddling that Joe Biden has denied being involved in.

There’s only one reasonable explanation, Hunter Biden is part of a secret right-wing cabal dedicated to guaranteeing President Trump’s re-election.  Either that or he is a total degenerate who cannot avoid the destruction of himself and everyone around him.  Wait a minute.  …..  On second thought I’ll go with that second one.

 

 

The Pitch

Whether the Republican Party, going forward, continues as the home for the people resisting the Woke Jacobins or some other organization represents them, I think it is necessary that they come up with a simple narrative for why people should vote for them.  Rather than the old “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” I think they’re going to have to rebrand.  In sales there is the concept of “the pitch.”  Basically, it is the salesman’s best guess at what he can say to the buyer to close the sale.  One thing any salesman knows is that the attention span of the customer is extremely short.  What is put forth must be the strongest bit of persuasion possible and it needs to be concise.

For this reason, I believe that it is useless to try and win over the Middle and even parts of the Left by waxing poetic about free speech, free enterprise, free trade or even free college.  Some of it will work with some of them and some will work with others but even if they believe you it won’t get their attention.  All of it has already been said by all the frauds on the Left and the Right a million times already.  It’s just background noise at this point.  This won’t get it done.  And it can’t even be President Trump’s 2016 pitch, “Make America Great Again.”  It’s a great pitch and it made him president.  But it’s limited to the Right.  What we need is something that will work on anyone who isn’t woke.  We need this because the Left has unleashed a monster on the country and it shouldn’t be ignored.  It is both a horrible weapon and also a great gift.  They have dropped the mask and they are allowing the regular people on the Right and the Middle and the Left to really see what they intend for all of us.  This is the equivalent of when the Communists took to the streets in Weimar Germany.  It was their endgame and they no longer held back about what they intended and what they were willing to do to get it.

By now there is more than enough documentary evidence available from Minneapolis, Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis and New York.  Packaging it into commercials and posters is child’s play for the campaign teams that the political parties have at their disposal.  All it requires is the slogan needed to sell the voters and convince them that it is in their interest to buy the product, to vote for the program.

Succinctly put, I think it would be something like this, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being eaten alive by BLM and Antifa.”  Some might object to “eaten alive.”  Maybe that seems inaccurate.  Sure, I’m a bit on the poetic side.  Say rather, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being beaten, robbed and dispossessed by BLM and Antifa.”  Either way I think that is the gist of the pitch.  Forget about freedom, forget about economics.  Stick to the fear of being fed to the howling mob.  I’ve never been in advertising but I was a salesman and I know that the two most powerful emotions that can be invoked in a pitch are greed and fear.  In this pitch, greed doesn’t come into play.  But fear is front and center on this one.  There are videos of the mob smashing, looting and burning down people’s businesses.  We have scenes of them beating and even killing innocent people who didn’t flee from their onslaught.

Basically, if the Republicans truly are too stupid to take advantage of this opportunity then they must simply be replaced by those who aren’t.  The Mid-West is full of Democrat voters who can be convinced that it is in their best interests to stop the madness that is being inflicted upon their neighbors every night on their television screens.

For the people listening the message should be forget the tri-corner hats, stock up on ammunition.

A Graph That Actually Means Something

The polls will always show President Trump (or any Republican) losing in any election.  FUD is just part of their plan.  But apparently their FUD this year is weaker than their FUD in 2016.  Objectively that can’t be good for Joe Biden.  If President Trump is running a half a point ahead of what he did in 2016 he’s probably feeling pretty good about his chances.  Well, Biden needs a rest anyway.

 

 

 

 

How Much Weirder Will It Get?

We are living in a time that, with respect to weirdness, rivals anything in living memory.  We have whole areas of the country that are not only tolerating but actually abetting a violent insurrection on their own soil.  We have the intelligentsia and the various other elite groupings of the country almost monolithically backing an attempt to unseat a legitimately elected President of the United States by illegal actions of the Justice Department and Intelligence agencies of the Federal government.  And finally, we have a bioweapon unleashed by the Chinese and allowed by the Democrat controlled states to disrupt the life and economy of the country right before a presidential election.  All that’s missing is an eruption of walking dead stalking the countryside in search of fresh brains or a flying saucer invasion or an infestation of elephant sized giant ants in the sewers of Portland Oregon.  Scratch that last one.  No one would notice or care if Portland was wiped out by giant ants.  It would be an improvement.

There is a theory that right after the election is decided the rioting will stop and even the COVID hysteria will end.  Depending on the theorist this will or won’t depend on who wins.  Some speculate that if President Trump wins that the rebellion will continue and maybe even increase.  Others say that it ends no matter who wins.

I’m not sure who’s right.  I do know that the radicals have become completely unhinged.  I’m not sure they will disappear if the Democrats take over.  In fact, I think they will become the shock troops to reinforce whatever unconstitutional actions the Democrats proclaim.  If the President wins, he may be faced with this unending street violence into the foreseeable future.  Up till now he has barely intervened in places like Portland and Seattle.  But after the election it doesn’t seem possible that the status quo can continue.  And I’m sure the President wants to end this chaotic disruption of the peace.

So, this is what I think will be after the election.  If the President is re-elected, he has to crush the rebellion.  The correct way this should happen is for the FBI to gather up the ringleaders and prosecute them and those that funded and organized them.  If William Barr is slow to do this then he will have to be replaced.  And it seems we will know almost immediately if this will be necessary.  Barr has failed to prosecute the conspirators of the Coup against the President.  If after the President is re-elected Barr fails to act then he must be immediately dismissed and replaced with someone willing to clean out the Justice Department from top to bottom.  And this new Attorney General will also need to crush Antifa and BLM completely.  And I judge that this can be accomplished, if not easily, then at least after some diligence.

But if Biden wins the White House then the red states are going to have to take action against these groups inside their cities.  Places like Austin, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia will need to be cleaned out by the state governments.  This will be made all the more difficult by the interference that the Justice Department and its components like the FBI will perpetrate in support of the terrorists.  And I further believe that once the federal government is in friendly hands, these terrorist groups will unleash chaos on an even grander scale.  They will issue out of the cities and terrorize the suburbs and countryside.  It may be that this will be the spark that finally starts a counterrevolution.  But it will be mess.

These are my guesses as to what awaits us after the election.  Obviously, I prefer that a second Trump Administration will be the instrument of destruction for the Antifa and BLM vermin.  But either way, I think it is long past time that these anarchists are dragged away and put in prison where they truly belong.  Let’s hope that our leaders have the backbone to get it done.
