What’s President Trump’s Next Move?

I assume Dementia Joe and Willie Brown’s Ho will start off their fake regime by passing a whole bunch of laws to make us miserable and trample on our constitutional rights.  Whatever atrocities they commit I’ll do my best to neutralize their effect by appropriate avoidance techniques.  But I’ll be damned if I’ll actually listen to anything those morons have to say.  I don’t have the strongest stomach and I think it would be bad for my digestion to hear that kind of bilge on an empty or full stomach.  Unless, that is, if someone tells me that there are some really hilarious gaffs included.  And even then, it will be annoying to see his ugly stupid head.

But what I’m really interested in is President Trump’s next moves.  I want to hear from the man.  If he is going to set up an operation I want to know if it’s something I can get involved in.  A social media company especially one that allows users to network with people from our side would be very exciting.  And a small fee to set up a site on it wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me as long as it works well.

A news media company would be okay but honestly, I get my information from websites now and television isn’t so much of a thing I’m interested in anymore.  But burying FoxNews is an admirable goal so that would be okay.

Maybe he’s going to start a political organization, either a third party or a PAC that will represent the interests of the Deplorables.  That would be amazing.  I could see an organization like that primarying every single one of the quisling Republicans that turned tail and showed the yellow stripes on their backs during the “riot in the Capitol.”  Seeing Mitt Romney ejected during a primary election would be one of the happiest moments of my political life.

Or maybe he’s going to two or three of these things at the same time.  Or maybe he’s going to get back into his own business.  After all, four years is a long time to ignore a large company.  Maybe it’s time he got back to making money.

Or finally, maybe he’s tired and will want to retire and write his memoirs.  I’m sure he could sell a hundred million copies of a book that details the things that went on in the White House during his administration.  It would be fascinating and very educational to many, many of us.

But whatever he decides to do I’d like to know.  Having him cut off from his people is weird.  I don’t think there’s been a week in the last four years that he hasn’t sent us messages about what he was thinking and doing.  Having to hear about Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or especially Dementia Joe is just too boring and unpleasant to contemplate.  They are pathetic losers and subhuman creatures that don’t merit anyone reading or hearing their words or thoughts.

So, come on President Trump, set up a website and provide us with some content.  It doesn’t have to be restricted to tweet length messages.  Keep us informed about what the real leader of the real Americans is up to.  Don’t leave us to the dreary prospect of subsisting on the nonsense that comes out of “official” Washington.  That’s a fate worse than death.

Being Right on the Net

Google, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, Kickstarter, etc., etc., etc.  The internet giants will be doing everything in their power to shut down the opposition to Dementia Joe.  They will de-platform, ban and demonetize everyone on the right they can think of.

Will this work?  No, not really.  What it will do is change the basis of how things will work going forward.  Conservatives won’t be able to free ride on the social network platforms and monetize their popularity through Google’s monolithic stranglehold on the flow of information and internet advertising.  The Right will be forced to set themselves up as Mom-and-Pop shops doing their advertising in places like Parler and Gab.  Well, so what?  That’s probably a good idea.  Being under the thumb of the Tech Giants means having to pass their ever more biased speech codes until you’d end up either sounding exactly like the Left or completely silent.

The harder challenge will be the banks and credit companies.  PayPal and some of the other e-commerce payment processors have also been cancelling out the accounts of people whose politics they don’t approve of.  The last I heard there are some alternate processors who will serve instead.  There are probably problems associated with the alternatives but right now those are the breaks.  It can be expected that the Left will continue to put pressure on these alternate providers to close ranks to try to starve out the Right.  And for that reason, in the future it should be a priority of any organized front on the Right to build up financial platforms of our own to protect us from the Left’s blockade actions.

Up until now I haven’t monetized my site at all.  I really want to find out if I have anything worth selling.  But I have noticed a few folks making the first moves to putting in paywalls around some content and accepting a few reasonable ads on their sites.  I like what the ZMan is doing.  He gives a plug for businesses that are owned by conservatives.  That makes a lot of sense.  We’re going to have to have a lot more of exactly that.

And I’ve been threatening to finish a book I’ve been working on for months.  Well, the excitement of the last couple of months has set me back at least that long but one day I’ll be peddling my opus magnum and I’ll have to decide whether I will use Amazon exclusively or try some other venue.  Maybe I’ll even have a store of my own.  We’ll see.

But the thing about all this is that it would go a lot faster and easier if we had a billionaire who had the wherewithal to set something up that catered to us.  A combination Facebook, YouTube, PayPal and Kickstarter just for the Right.  No more deplatforming, no more banning no more doxxing.  Basically, a place of our own.  And meanwhile the billionaire would make money hand over fist doing it.  Think of the merchandising and other opportunities available from having almost a monopoly over about 150 million Americans.  Now that really is worth the trouble of setting up.

If you’re reading this Mr. President think about it.  Building that would feel like a revolution all by itself.

Here’s some links for web hosting for conservatives and social media for us.

Analyzing the Trump Method – Learning How to Win

Watching as President Trump rallies his forces to fight the legal battle that the Democrats have forced on him reminded me just how different he is from the losers in the Republican party that preceded him.  And one of his pithy designations stands out as a marker.  He called Jeb Bush “low energy.”  And that is how I can segregate Donald Trump from the rest of the “conservatives.”  He is anything but low energy.  It is his dynamism that allows him to defy gravity.  When the other conservatives allow themselves to sink down in the quick sand Donald Trump powers up and out.  Basically, he is not afraid of tackling a challenge.  He is undaunted by hard work and not afraid metaphorically to get his hands dirty.

Another thing about him is he looks for ways to take advantage of structural weaknesses that his enemies try to hide beneath a façade of strength.  This speaks to the experience of a lifetime dealing with crooked politicians and their business associates.  He knows a stacked deck when he sees one and he knows how to use the rules of the game to his own advantage.  These things speak to intelligence and experience.

Another characteristic is that he is not an idealist.  He decisions are based on observable fact not theory.  If something has been tried and failed, he learns from that.  He’s adaptable and can roll with the punches.  This speaks to a flexibility that allows less important factors to be subordinated to higher order imperatives.

And finally, he is driven by his desire to win.  His egoism drives him to conquer obstacles of every kind, whether they’re individuals, organizations or collective barriers that stand in the way of his goals.  To this end he has assembled a team of people who work to achieve the objectives he has identified.

When I look at this list of traits what I see are the traits that I would characterize as the qualifications of a survivor.  Individuals that have these traits will survive in good times and bad.  They will thrive and rise to the top in good times and they will survive and hold their own during adversity.

This is what we need to emulate if we want to preserve ourselves, our family, our friends and the things we believe in.  We need to be energetic and adaptable in the face of adversity and hostility from the society that is endeavoring to stamp us out.  We will need to learn the rules of the game and use them to our advantage in advancing our agenda and hindering our enemies.

And finally, we need to have the pure willpower to endure the hard work and endless disappointments that await us in a struggle that basically has no end.  My generation will not see the end of this struggle.  I doubt my children will see it won.  But I have grandchildren and they are worth fighting for.  I want them to know what freedom is.  And I can settle for seeing incremental progress.  We can start by beginning the hard work of building institutions and organizations that are entirely on our side.  No more Fox News, no more Boy Scouts, no more Weekly Standards.

So, here’s to President Donald J. Trump.  Here’s to the first President of the new America.  It’s being created inside the old and it will be born in hard work and pain.  But it needs to be done and it will allow us to once again be free.  So, think about the traits you’ll need to go forward.  Decide if you have the right stuff.  Because otherwise you might as well join the hive and be comfortably absorbed into the collective and eventually painlessly euthanized.  That’s the choice.

Pre-Game Jitters and An Election Day Open Post

Note:Updates are added at the bottom of the post over the course of the day.  

Well here we go.  No matter how confident you may feel about the results of the upcoming elections you’re probably a little nervous about what will be going on for the next week or more.  And so am I.  I’m fairly certain the President will be re-elected relatively easily but fairly certain and sure are not the same thing.  Also, based on the actions of the woke lunatics infesting the cities around the country I’m pretty sure there will be at least a certain amount of bedlam and violence happening, especially if the polls show Trump winning.  As soon as that happens these creeps will go ballistic, especially in their strongholds like Portland and Seattle.  I expect there will be a certain number of murders and lots of arson and looting for sure.  And the Democrats and their army of crooked lawyers and judges will sow confusion and attempt to outright steal any states that aren’t strong enough to defend themselves.  And the Supreme Court will be the epicenter of the battle and John Roberts is a spineless loser who will do his damnedest to hurt our side.

But what I think is good advice is to try to keep the excitement level a couple of notches below maximum, so instead of eleven dial it back to seven.  It will be a long night for sure and it might even be a very long week of distressing news regardless of how well the election goes.  The world is full of very bad people and they will be looking to rattle our side as hard as they can.  And of course, the media is going to spin everything they can as negatively as they can for as long as they can.

I’m off this week and so as a way to keep morale up I intend to keep this as an open post going all the way through election day and even beyond if it is warranted.  I’ll try to combine election results, links to important or entertaining news along with my always witty and penetrating insights.  Anyone who has comments is, as usual, welcome to chime in with relevant or entertaining discussion.  I’m especially interested to hear about local conditions where you are.  Anything you find interesting about things going on during the election is exactly what I’m looking for.

So, let’s hope it ends like it did in 2016 with a river of progressive tears washing away the mounds of inaccurate polls and their howls drowning out the words of the talking heads trying to explain how they got it so wrong.  But even if it is a long confusing time of disputed election results and screeching progressives threatening to summon the military if their claims about disputed results aren’t honored immediately and unconditionally, remember to keep calm and look at the big picture.  There is no guarantee that elections will work in our favor every time or even at all.  The important thing is to be looking at how to prevent the Left from impacting you, your family and friends.  That’s something you can work on when we’re winning or losing.  And be willing to share a laugh or a kind word with anyone on our side that you meet here or elsewhere.

Best of luck to President Trump and the other folks on our side who are about to get on the roller coaster that is Election Day 2020.  And best wishes to all of us.  And as an old tv show used to say, “be careful out there.”

 

11:30 A.M. Update – Just got back from voting.  My little town turned out in phenomenal numbers.  The lines were epic.  But it was truly fun getting out and doing something useful.  One amusing event happened in line.  About two people behind me in line was this twenty something kid with a sort of goth persona; dyed black hair, black clothes, and the palest skin I’ve seen in years.  As we got close to the front of the line a middle aged woman comes out of the exit door and the young guy yells out have you voted for Joe Biden today.  She made a face like he had said something vile and exclaimed “Hell no!”  I almost burst out laughing but just chuckled a little instead.  I’ll have to say that restored my faith in humanity.  Even here in the belly of the beast, New England, there are plenty of good people left.

12:54 P.M. Note:  I’ve been sent an invite for a 9 pm zoom to serve as a remote election party.  Camera Girl has agreed to bake some pizza pies for me so I can have a reheat-able food available as the long night wears on.  She also plans to studiously ignore the goings on.  She is one of those benighted people who takes no interest in politics.  She claims I am responsible for taking care of that.  Ah well, she is making the pizza after all.  What social provisions is everyone else doing for this  momentous event?  Is it mostly a solitary one for you? 

3:22 P.M. – News Headline – Pelosi Calls Amy Coney Barrett an ‘Illegitimate Supreme Court Justice”

Can you imagine any normal person being called illegitimate by Nancy Pelosi.  At this point I don’t think Pelosi even qualifies as a living human.  As far as I can tell she’s now one of the undead.  The only question is whether she can qualify as a vampire if her sustenance is gin instead of blood.  Please Nancy stay in your  crypt, your scaring the children and Halloween is officially over.

7:03 P.M. – Trump wins Kentucky.  No surprise there.

7:33 P.M. – So far all the numbers are what you’d expect.  Some networks have already called VA for Biden with 0% counted.  But that’s probably a safe state to call for the Dems.  The interesting ones for us will be the Carolinas and Georgia.  If those go well it will bode well for the rest of the night.

7:55 P.M. – I was listening to Fox News but there are just too many progs there to make it enjoyable.  If anyone knows of a better live discussion let me know.

8:02 P.M. – SC was called for Trump.  Not a big surprise, but encouraging.

8:09 P.M. – Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois and Massachusetts just got called for Biden with the usual 0%.  No surprises.

8:18 P.M. – Fox is saying that Trump looks like he is winning in Florida in unexpected places (Miami/Dade).

8:40 P.M. – Florida seems like it may be an easy win for Trump.

9:40 P.M. – The betting odds have now shifted to Trump.

10:10 P.M. – Everything seems to be going our way.  Fingers crossed.

10:51 P.M. – It looks like PA is shutting down the counting probably because Trump is so far ahead.

1:33 A.M. – So the crooked state officials are withholding the totals in PA and several other locales.  We’ll have to wait until the daylight to see how these criminals try to steal the election.  To be continued.

9:55 A.M. – Shennanigans seemed to have ensued.  Lawyers will have to sort this out.  But without a doubt MI looks like it will be needed.

Murkowski Jumps on the Trump Bandwagon

Other than Senator Collins in Maine who is in the fight of her political life for re-election I don’t think any other Republican will vote against Barrett.  Even that gutless weasel Romney can see which way the wind is blowing and will follow the Senate leader’s orders.  But seeing Murkowski cave tells me that she thinks Trump is going to win and she doesn’t want to be his biggest Republican target in two years when she come up for re-election.

 

Listening to these craven fools pretend that they are making decisions based on careful ethical considerations is nauseating.  These sham conservatives are the real problem in our government.  If we had actual conservatives in Washington we wouldn’t be in the end stages of governmental collapse.  Even if she votes for our side this time, I hope an actual conservative runs against her and gives the people a real choice.

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 President and Vice President Stiff Arm 60 Minutes

The Conservative Tree House linked up to the White House release of the Sixty Minutes interviews with Trump and Pence.

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/10/22/president-trump-releases-the-raw-footage-of-60-minutes-interview-with-bias-hatred-rude-lesley-stahl/

Of course the President gave his usual pugnacious defense of his record and hit back at Leslie Stahl at every step.  But I was really pleased to see how Mike Pence has advanced over the last four years.  He is a different personality from Trump much quieter and soft spoken but all the deference he used to show toward the press is gone.  He stood up for his side, made his case and didn’t apologize for anything.  He was very effective.  By 2024 they may have to tone him down a little, who knows.  Bravo Mr. Pence.

It’s funny, they do the same old act every time.  They send a woman and then let her bad mouth our side in every question.  The dishonesty and bad faith every time she opens her mouth is like a caricature of a dishonest journalist.  The only one she left out was about wife-beating.

I love that the White House put out their unedited version to counteract the spinned version that CBS will doctor up and curate.  The other high point was whenever President Trump reminded Stahl about the softball interview that Biden got from 60 Minutes.  That was effective and smart.  It allowed him to throw out some digs about Hunter and the crooked Biden family business.  All in all, a win for our side.

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.

Jeff Toobin Gets a Timeout for a Personal Foul

Due to a COVID related telecommunication miscalculation, Jeffrey Toobin finds he will now have more time on his hands to document Donald Trump’s moral shortcomings.  Isn’t poetic justice amazing.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-jeffrey-toobin-zoom-masturbation

You can’t make this stuff up.  To paraphrase from the classic Seinfeld episode on this topic Jeffrey is no longer “King of his Castle, nor Lord of his Domain.”

 

 

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.
