The Democrat Primary Field – Part 3 – Cory Booker

I better hurry this series along because the candidates are dropping like flies.  In addition to such household names as Seth Moulton, Eric Swalwell, John Hickenlooper, Jay Inslee and Mike Gravel this week we lost the vivacious and vacuous Kirsten Gillibrand.  I was hoping to feature the current holder of the Hillary Clinton Memorial Senate Seat from New York but alas it was not meant to be.  Ah, well.

So, let’s not waste our chance to review the work of Newark’s own Spartacus.  There’s no kind way to say this, he’s a doofus.  Now mind you, he’s a graduate of Stanford, a Rhodes Scholar, with a law degree from Yale.  So apparently, he’s a genius.  But listen to him speak.  He’s a certified doofus.  It’s remarkable, when forced to speak ex tempore, without his teleprompter, he stutters and spits out fragments of thoughts and phrases.  He was the mayor of Newark and claimed that he lowered the unemployment rate by two percent but a left leaning publication said it was actually 0.7%.  When he left the job for greener pastures, the atrocious high school dropout rate and city murder rate in Newark were both still sky high.  He’s the junior Senator from New Jersey and chances are he can keep that job in perpetuity with their voting record.  But honestly, he’s a pretty dim bulb.  But I want Cory to go as far in the contest as comically possibly.

Now, to be sure, I have a better chance of being the Democrat nominee in 2020 than Spartacus does.  There is no way the DNC would allow Cory to be offered up as a burnt offering to President Trump at a debate.  There wouldn’t be anything left.  My guess is after a round of questions or possibly two rounds, Cory’s eyes would be bulging out and he’d bolt for the exit.  As entertaining as that would be, I’m still holding out for Creepy Uncle Joe to get the nomination.  So, I’m of the opinion that Cory will drop out of the race, put on his khiton, strap on his sword and battle the Roman legions a Metapontum like the true vegan, straight male, Thracian gladiator that he is.  But he should last at least into round three of the Democrat debates so we have that to look forward to.  Is Tony Curtis still alive?  Maybe he can endorse him in a commercial that ends with his wonderful lisping tagline, “I love you Spartacus.”

 

The Democrat Primary Field – Part 2 – Elizabeth Warren

The Democrat Primary Field – Part 1 – Joe Biden

 

Being a transplant to New England I have sadly had a ringside seat for the Fauxcahantas, Liarwatha, Granny Clampett, Elizabeth Warren show.  And it has been a spectacle like few others.  But Massachusetts being Massachusetts even the spectacle of Snow White claiming to be Pocahontas did not deny her election to the United States Senate from the Bay State.  They do love their radicals.

Warren is actually the brain behind Obama’s famous “you didn’t build that” assault on entrepreneurs.  He lifted it wholly from a speech she gave in Andover Massachusetts that essentially said that every businessman used the roads and infrastructure that was paid for by all the citizens of the country. Therefore, his ownership of his own business was somehow illegitimate and he should have to pay through the nose to keep a part of what was his.  Her platform is tax the rich.  Free college, free stuff and debt forgiveness.  She’s basically Bernie in a pantsuit.

As communists go, she’s relatively glib.  She can string together sentences that sound reasonably coherent but when she gets started on one of her rants, she gets this manic look in her beady little eyes and it’s clear that she’s actually a pretty dangerous lunatic.  Still compared to the gibbering of Corey Booker or the whining of Kamala Harris or even the demented yammering of Biden she seems almost sane.  So, for that reason, and because of the belief that suburban white women will vote for her in droves many on the right fear her candidacy.  Now I don’t think she’ll get the nomination.  But I wish she would.  Why?  For the sheer joy of watching President Trump call her Fauxcahantas and Liarwatha and Chief Full of Bull.  Can you imagine?  I mean, I think there’s an outside chance she’ll stroke out if he starts laughing at her during a debate.  Think of the tweets.  Think of the rallies.  There would be endless war whoops and memes of Warren’s face on Cigar Store Indians and Indian Head Nickels and her on the warpath.  It’ll be heap big fun.

And Warren’s presidential run has been great for her most loyal torturer in chief Howie Carr.  He is a columnist for the Boston Herald and now that Whitey Bulger is dead “the Fake Indian” as he calls her is his favorite target.  Here’s his latest taunt.

So that’s Fauxcahantas.  She made her career by convincing Harvard Law that she was a lily-white woman of color.  Now she has to convince democrat voters that she can get Americans to believe that she’ll hand them over all the wampum they deserve.  Ugh.

 

The Democrat Primary Field – Part 1 – Joe Biden

Looking at the field in the Democratic 2020 Presidential Primary it’s remarkable to see just how many of these people are demonstrably unhinged.  And I’m looking beyond Marianne Williamson and Corey Booker who are beyond the pale when it comes to eccentricity.  But right now, I’d like to start with the front runner, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

First off, with all the gaffes and dead air during the debates is there any doubt that Joe has lost more than a step or two off his fighting prime?  If elected he would be older than Reagan was when he stepped down in 1989.  And that is definitely the least of his problems.

Joe Biden is captured on film during official government proceedings sidling up behind women, grabbing their shoulders and sniffing their hair, or putting his hands on their ribcages just slightly below their breasts.  Now, definitely, in the reign of Caligula this kind of behavior would have been down right benign from a comparative psychosexual perspective.  But today, unless you’re a character in an FBI behavioral science procedural drama you’re supposed to keep your hands off the other homo sapiens you’re not married to.  What creepy fetishistic process is going on in his head when he does these kinds of things in front of cameras?  Does he think he’s invisible or above the scrutiny of observers?  Are we supposed to think that he’s just that over enthusiastic old uncle who likes to hug everybody but doesn’t mean anything by it?  What must it have been like in the Biden home around Christmas time with all the young girl relatives doing a duck and cover every time they heard slipper-shod footsteps closing in from behind?  The mind boggles.

Joe has been a strange duck since always.  Back in 1988 when he ran for President the first time he was hounded by multiple charges of plagiarism and inaccurate statements about his academic record and forced to withdraw.  Now admittedly some of this was because that dweeb Dukakis was playing lawyer ball against his rivals.  But let’s face it, lying about your college record isn’t very smart.  Then there’s the hair plugs.  Anyway, Joe’s whole career is littered with lies, exaggeration and braggadocio but without any actual accomplishments.  In a way he is the perfect Democrat candidate.

But now Joe has to win the 2020 nomination and Joe’s dinosaur version of Democrat candidacy doesn’t mesh with the woke, #metoo, progressive politics.  He’s been attacked by Kamala Harris for working with the Southern Democrats back in the 1970s.  She accused him of trying to keep young Kamala from being bussed back in California.  And Corey Booker accused Joe’s 1990s crime bill of incarcerating the entire population of Newark, New Jersey.  Poor Joe.

Initially Joe had been dialing back his aggression toward his fellow candidates because of the politically correct requirements of an old white male Democrat defending himself from the diversity scrum that the Democrat debates have turned into lately.  Because of this, Joe has somewhat become a punching bag for the likes of Kamala Harris and Corey Booker.  But finally, he seems to have escaped from this situation and is now fighting back with such inspired zingers as, “Watch out kid!” and “Go easy on me kid!”  The interesting thing about the race is that Joe’s standing in the polls really hasn’t been lowered very much at all from the heavy pounding he took in the first and second debates.  According to the news reports on television and the newspapers Joe was slaughtered in each of those debates and should have plummeted precipitously in the polls from all these beatings.  But there he still stands, way ahead of his opponents.  Apparently, the voters recognize that he has promised the fewest impossible things and therefore is the least unelectable Democrat in the general election.  And as his numbers remain above theirs, the lowest tier candidates will begin the depressing thought process of when to pull the plug on their hopeless pursuit of the nomination.  In fact, former Colorado Governor Hickenlooper and California Representative Swalwell have already pulled the plug and now will join the ranks of bitter losers mumbling “2024” under their breaths and counting up the money they managed to add to their war chests this year.

Does Joe have access to the industrial strength fix that was “in” when Hillary was running against Bernie and the Bros?  That’s the million-dollar question.  Has Obama anointed Joe?  Seemingly not.  All the indications are that Obama is keeping his options open.  He probably knows that Joe is not as inspiring to the Hopey/Changey crowd as he was.  But even slipping into imbecility and marked with the sign of Cain, Creepy Joe should be able to beat Liarwatha and the rest of the midgets.  After all, each of them has incredible negatives too.  Granny Warren was a pretend Cherokee.  Kamala Harris slept her way to the top.  Mayor Pete was the mayor of a large town!  Corey Booker, well he’s Corey Booker.  He actually called himself Spartacus, on purpose!  Bernie is like a Commie version of Uncle Leo from the Seinfeld show.  Joe will beat these guys because he can pretend to be sane.  They can’t hide their crazy.  He’s the bull goose looney and will be the candidate.

But that’s as far as he’ll get.  The general election will be a slaughter of poor Sleepy Creepy Joe.  After all President Trump is no kid and definitely won’t go easy on Biden.  Sorry Joe.

So, here’s to you Joe, you creepy, sleepy, gropey son of a gun.  You may be nuts but you’re still the best of the bunch.  Long may you grab those shoulders and sniff that hair.

How Does Trump Navigate the Justice Department Mess – An Uninformed Opinion

I’ll start out by saying straight out I’m simply stating my opinion based on what the situation seems to be to me.  I have no inside info and I’m not sure anyone outside the White House knows all the facts on the ground.  That being said here goes.

First assumption I make is that Robert Mueller means to persecute President Trump’s associates until he can produce enough circumstantial evidence to indict the President.  My second assumption is that he already has a bunch of things that he can unleash at any time.  My third assumption is that firing Rosenstein and Mueller after the new House is convened would be worse than doing it now.

Based on these assumptions, which are completely my own calculations of where things stand, I think President Trump will fire Robert Mueller in the next couple of days.  He’ll probably fire Rosenstein too.  But that is even less certain than the rest of this hypothesizing.

The fallout from such a course of action is much more certain.  The New York Times, Washington Post and the rest of the rags and CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and NBC will explode with leaked stories accusing President Trump and all his associates inside and outside of the administration with every atrocity since the Sack of Rome.  Following this the Democratic House will begin investigations and shortly after that start the Impeachment Circus.  Will they impeach him?  Sure.  The only question in my mind is whether any of the idiot Republicans in the Senate decide to turn on the President.  Luckily, I think the great majority of them are smarter than that.  So, we probably lose a whole year going through this charade.

But by my reckoning that is actually the best way to handle this whole thing.  Delaying any of these steps only makes it worse.  Hopefully President Trump has gone through this too and recognizes the folly of letting this get drawn out.  The sooner he begins this Kabuki Theater act, the more space he puts between this farce and the 2020 election.  Waiting will sink his last two years and invites Mueller to tear even more people apart.  And he might as well pardon all the folks Mueller has indicted and prosecuted.  And as soon as he fires Mueller he should set up Rudy Giuliani to prosecute all the Dems and Deep Staters who have been running this treasonous witch hunt for the last three years.  And that should include Obama and his evil cronies and the Clintons.

So that’s my outsider, not clued in, totally uninformed opinion.   Fire these sons of bitches and let the chips fly where they will.  The American state is divided into two approximately equal groups.  One half likes you and won’t care at all about the crap that will fly in all directions.  The other half already hates you and it won’t make them hate you any more than they do.  So, go for it!  It will be an enormous shot in the arm for the dirt people and it will drive the moonbats right through escape velocity and headed for interstellar space.  Just my two cents.
