Trump vs Crumb Bum Incumbent Chump Stumping

[Announcer]:  We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast of some utterly meaningless reality show to bring you the already in progress televised presentation of President Trump’s campaign rally for Incumbent Republican Senator Rathbone Bamboozle from the Great State of Northeast Meetah.  And here is the President.

[President Trump]:  Thank you Senator Bamboozle for that rambling incoherent introduction.  I couldn’t understand everything you said because you are so falling down drunk but from what I heard I disagree with about every fourth word.  Good evening ladies and gentlemen.  I’m here tonight to convince you to get out and vote for Senator Bamboozle.  Looking back on his long and storied career of graft, corruption, featherbedding and just plain influence peddling it’s hard to believe that I can actually find a single reason to recommend him.  I mean look at him.  He’s an old, fat, drunken, dishonest SOB and he’s hideously ugly to boot.  In a better world, I’d be urging the Senate Majority Leader to proffer charges against him prior to expulsion from the Senate and if it’s still permitted I’d have him bullwhipped out of the Capitol Building.  But we don’t live in a better world.  In this world your choice is this worthless bag of crap or a Democrat.  So, relatively speaking, the bag of crap is the better man.  If the Democrats get in, we can expect them to stonewall all further progress on job creation, tax relief, trade improvement and immigration control.  We’ll have no further progress on an honest Supreme Court and we’ll end up with socialism and reverse racism tainting every law and government program.

I remember just last year Rathbone Bamboozle declared in the pit of the Senate that he would do everything in his power to see that my presidency failed.  He said that my positions on immigration and trade were un-American.  He swore that he would oppose any policy that I championed and swore that he would petition the FBI to prosecute me on charges that I colluded with the Russians against Crooked Hillary.

Well, that was then, this is now.  Senator Bamboozle is thirty points under water in the polls and his wife has left him for the local termite inspection guy who works his neighborhood.  She said he associates with a better class of individuals than her husband.  So, after he begged me on his hands and knees and the political spin doctors assured me that we need his seat to move forward with our agenda, I agreed very reluctantly to come here and ask you long suffering people to bring this loser back to the Senate.  I can’t claim that he will be a better Senator or a better man but I can promise you that once I have enough votes in the Senate to not need his sorry butt around anymore, I’ll have him investigated by the IRS and sent to prison for at least twenty years.  (turning around to the dais) You hear that Rathbone?  Better start a weight training program.  Prison is a pretty tough gig.

So, in conclusion, vote for this bum.  I’ve written a new campaign slogan for him.  Tell me what you think.  “He’s a worthless, evil, conniving bastard, but he’s not Satan himself.”  (the crowd gives him a standing ovation) Trump out.

How I Got Here

I was born in 1957.  My father and uncles fought in World War II and the Korean War.  I was raised to believe that Americans were the good guys.  And then Walter Cronkite and John Kerry said we were the bad guys in Vietnam.  A few years later Lyndon Johnson told us we were racists.  A decade later Jimmy Carter told us to let the enemies of the United States do as they pleased because we had sinned against them.  And every day the Media and the Left did everything they could to tear down our country and our spirit.  We had stagflation (stagnant economy and 20% inflation), the Iran Hostage Crisis and the Carter Malaise.  That was a low point.

And then a miracle happened.  Ronald Reagan told us we weren’t the problem and that we really were the good guys.  And it was like a cloud drifted past and the sun was shining on us again.  And like magic, everything got better.  And Americans were proud and happy again.  And even the lousy leftists seem to remember they were Americans a little and it was morning in America again.

And George H. W. Bush said it was his turn to be President and he had learned his lesson and he would be just like Reagan only smarter and kinder.  And we wanted to believe him and compared to Mike Dukakis he could have been John Wayne.  So he got his turn.  And we got a New World Order complete with higher taxes, NAFTA, shuttered factories, high unemployment, recession and Middle East War.

And that got us Bill Clinton and Hillary, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Monica, Dot Com Bubble, Al Gore, more shuttered factories, Chinese trade imbalance and moral rot.

Everything was a muddle and a mess.  When George W Bush said he was a Christian Conservative from Texas we hoped that he would right the ship.  Avoiding Al Gore seemed like dodging a huge bullet.  We hoped that we could start to repair some of the damage from his father and the Clintons.  And the 9-11 happened.  And that was like a punch to the throat.  And W did a lot of things right.  He joined the country in a crusade to crush Al Qaeda and the Taliban.  And the young men of that generation answered the call and went to Afghanistan and crushed our enemies.  And there was hope that we could subdue the Muslim extremists and end the Middle Eastern threats once and for all.  But a unfunny thing happened.  W had his own vision of a New world Order.  And it involved draining off the blood and treasure of our country to turn the Middle East into Kansas.  And he squandered both of those precious commodities until there was nothing left.  And when he was finished Iraq wasn’t Kansas and the Democrats took the Congress and the Presidency.  All W accomplished was killing and maiming a generation of young Americans, bankrupting the country and making Barack Hussein Obama president.

Obama’s presidency was like a foreign occupation.  It was hard to decide which was worse, the injury or the insult.  He took every opportunity to belittle and shame Americans and he did whatever damage he could do.  Permanent double digit unemployment and wage stagnation had robbed a generation of the American dream and beggared their parents.  Obamacare was the biggest legislative victory he scored against us but it also seemed to galvanize the country against him.  The worst damage he did was the BLM activism that he aided and abetted.  The other mischief he sponsored was spreading alien refugees wherever he could.  And one other thing that he got behind was the whole gay marriage, transgender movement.  He discovered that he had “evolved” to recognize a constitutional right to gay marriage and this dove-tailed with the lunacy that drove Justice Anthony Kennedy to inflict a Supreme Court decision forcing another insane assault on the American family.

And so, in 2015 we had hit bottom.  It didn’t seem that anything could be done to save America from poverty and degradation.  Our choices, such as they were, were Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Jeb! Bush.  And we all knew neither of those two could beat Hillary.  After all Bernie was supposed to lose and the super delegate system would make sure of that.  Jeb was much too much of a gentleman to consider doing anything more than weakly protest at the unfair campaign attacks that Hillary’s machine would unleash and then good naturedly concede defeat.  And when Antonin Scalia died suddenly during the election year it seemed as if nothing could save us from the dismantling of the First and second Amendments.  This truly was the political low point of my entire life.

And then a miracle happened.  Donald J. Trump.  It seemed utterly impossible.  But there were some voices that I followed who said he was the answer and our last hope.  And interestingly they were on the Alt-Right (one specifically, Vox Day).

And they were right.

So twice in my adult life a leader has emerged who everyone said was crazy.  And they said he was wrong and would cause disaster and maybe nuclear war.  And both times he was the right man at the right time.  And just as with Reagan it’s as if a cloud has drifted out of the way and the sun is shining down on us bright and warm.

And this is what I’ve learned.  Don’t trust the elites, especially Republicans.  Not in the Media, not in Academia, not in Industry and not in Washington.  Don’t be mistaken into thinking that the Left are Americans even if they themselves are convinced they are.  They’re not, they’re globalists.  America is just an inconvenient stepping stone on the way to the global hive.  Don’t trust anyone who has been in politics for his whole life and for pity’s sake don’t make him VP.  Look for a courageous and confident leader who knows what the story is.  Look for someone who is unafraid to speak the painful truth and hurt powerful people’s feelings.  Look for someone who understands how the whole dirty business works and can’t be bought off.  Look for someone who isn’t ashamed to be an American.  And then back him to the Gates of Hell.  We may still end up crushed by the Left.  But at least we’ll know it is happening and we won’t be fooled again.

And remember, we got Reagan and Trump but there won’t be a third miracle, three strikes and you’re out.

Ward Cleaver and the Dark Enlightenment

I recently was on a website that contained a list of websites that it called “The Highly Excessive Guide to the Dissident Right.”  The dissident right is another of the names for those on the right who are in some way disillusioned with the GOP establishment (GOPE).  Well, the list is excessive in the sense that it is extremely long and contains a dizzying list of political descriptors. There are Reactionaries, Neoreactionaries, Black Traditionalists, Christian Neoreactionaries, Alt Right, Conservatives, Monarchists, Conservative Evolutionary Psychology, an Arch Druid, Catholic Reactionaries, Human Bio Diversity, Reactionary Conservatives, Classic Reactionaries, Libertarians, Dark Enlightenment Types, Anarcho-Capitalists, Comedy Rednecks, Radical Centrists, Gay Masculine Reactionaries, Jewish Reactionaries, Feminine Reactionaries, Anti-Feminist Females and probably another thirty combinations of these types.

Looking at this list it is pretty plain that unanimity is not a possibility for the dissident right.  So, what provides a point of agreement for most of these groups?

They are attempting to stop the progressive project from eliminating the American Republic as it used to be defined.  Each of these groups probably has a different slant on what things need to be preserved and which should change.  For instance, the Black Traditionalists and the Human Bio Diversity groups probably have some points of agreement and other things that might set them at each other’s throats.  The Gay Masculine Reactionaries and the Catholic Reactionaries would definitely have some doctrinal points of disagreement.  And the Dark Enlightenment Types and the Radical Centrists might not even speak the same language.

I guess it means that the best approach to take is the enemy of my enemy is my ally.  If a voting block emerges that can consistently beat the left then it’ll be time to work out the rules of engagement between the erstwhile allies.  And there is probably room for this sort of horse trading.  Especially since a lot of the differences are theoretical.  I assume if you are an Arch Druid or a Monarchist you have many short-term goals in common with others on the right that can be cooperated on well before you lobby for an American Stonehenge or the re-establishment of the House of Stuart.

This particular site I was visiting had some very long documents describing the tenets of the Dark Enlightenment political philosophy.  I haven’t finished it yet but it seems to start from the viewpoint that the democratic state is antithetical to individual freedom.  And they believe that the Left and the Right are two sides of the same coin that upholds the illusion that people are in charge of the government instead of the inverse.  It’s kind of grim reading but some of it is quite compelling.

Anyway, all this theoretical and fairly depressing prognostication about America’s future is still just that, predictions.  I think that if some of the obvious excesses of the left (affirmative action, reverse discrimination, anti-male policies, anti-normal policies, globalism, excessive immigration, junk environmental science like global warming, attacks on freedom of speech and gun rights and in general, anti-traditionalist and anti-family bias) are eliminated it will go a long way to restoring the environment where America will prosper and its people will be happy.

So, I still hold out hope that the America that our parents believed in is recoverable.  Maybe not complete with Ward, June, Wally and the Beave watching the Mickey Mouse Club but possibly with Ward avoiding mandatory gender re-assignment surgery.
