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.

 

 

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.

 

 

Impeachment: The Last Bullet in the Gun

The Impeachment of the President of the United States was an unheard-of idea for most of the first century of the country’s existence.  It took the Civil War and its partisan aftermath to produce the first impeachment and even then, President Andrew Johnson was acquitted.  When over a hundred years later Richard Nixon was threatened with impeachment, he became the first president to resign his office rather than subject the nation to such a trauma.  But twenty-five years later the standards of the country had eroded sufficiently that not only did Bill Clinton refuse to resign but he was actually acquitted of perjury and obstruction charges despite documentary and physical evidence to the contrary.  Now twenty years of polarization past that point it seems probable that a politically motivated impeachment charge by the Democrats against a popular Republican president might actually be a net positive for the president.

For the whole period of Donald Trump’s presidency and even before his inauguration, various Democrat officials and almost all of the Media have bandied about the impeachment threat.  When the Mueller investigation collapsed there was a short respite when even the Democrat leaders admitted that impeachment was no longer an option.

But with the recent Ukraine events Nancy Pelosi was hounded by the younger members of the Democrat caucus to announce that she has initiated a formal impeachment action.  Wow, that sounds serious!  But wait.  “She cannot unilaterally decide we’re in an impeachment inquiry.  What she said today makes no difference about what’s been going on,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said after Pelosi’s announcement.”  In other words, in order for an actual impeachment investigation to be started the full House has to vote on and approve it and Pelosi has refused to bring one to the floor.   So, what is actually going on here?

Despite what AOC’s Goon Squad would have you believe, impeaching President Trump on spurious charges would most likely lose Nancy Pelosi the House Democrat Majority and her Speaker’s chair after the 2020 election.  And Pelosi knows that.  In addition, the chance of the Senate convicting the President is effectively zero.  Twenty republican senators would have to join the democrats for the necessary two thirds majority and that’s even assuming that senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia would vote for something so unpopular with their constituencies.  Then, what is the strategy here?

My interpretation of the situation is that Democrats have to appear to be holding the President accountable for investigating members of the Obama administration that are known to have been involved in influence peddling.  That includes, at least, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.  Actually, allowing an investigation of these sacred cows of the Democrat establishment risks exposing levels of corruption that would certainly upend the American political order.

But they are trying to use the threat of impeachment only.  Because once they actually impeach him and he is acquitted by the Senate then Congress is basically a spent force.  They will have done their worst and the last bullet will have been fired.  At that point his continued existence as president will be a constant reminder to them and the rest of the country of their impotence.  All of their posturing and rhetoric will seem hollow and ridiculous.  And ridiculous is a very bad thing for influence peddlers.

What is difficult for me to determine is exactly what the President’s strategy is here.  Is he trying to force an impeachment or is it just collateral to his desire to punish the cabal that tried to overturn his election?  I think either one of those two scenarios is possible.  Personally, I hope he is working to expose the criminal conspiracy that exists against him.  Nothing would make me happier than hearing that Comey, McCabe, Brennan and Clapper were indicted and awaiting trial for treason.  The damage these people have done to the country is hard to overestimate.

But is it possible that President Trump is trying to get himself impeached?  It seems, at first glance, unthinkable.  Why would a president risk removal from office no matter how unlikely?  And if running for re-election wouldn’t he worry that the impeachment stigma would destroy his electability?  Maybe not.

The United States has become almost completely polarized.  The Left/Right divide has become a chasm both wide and deep.  Like the opposite sides of the Grand Canyon each can see the other from a vast distance with the space between a desolate no-man’s land.  So, impeachment will only serve to seal the fate of any Democrats still serving office in Red areas of the country and alternatively for Republicans in Blue areas.  It will stoke the resentment of partisans on both sides of the divide and fit in with each side’s narrative.  But being acquitted by the Senate will uplift the spirits of the Right and depress those of the Left.  In that sense it would be a net positive for the President’s side and may have been calculated by the political experts as a winning strategy.  It seems bizarre but I concede it is possible.

How does one decide which of these two situations is the actual one?  You probably can’t do it definitively but I guess one sign would be whether President Trump provides further excuses for the House to investigate him.  Let’s say he calls up the British Prime Minister and asks for him to investigate any links between the Clinton campaign and the Steele Dossier.  With the almost endless leaks coming out of the intelligence agencies we’d be hearing about it before the phone call ended.  Though, even that would still leave open the possibility that the President was more interested in getting to the bottom of the coup.  But at the very least it would mean that he was unworried about impeachment.

And honestly it appears that there is no reason to fear impeachment any more.  Not even the Media will pretend there is any objectivity toward President Trump.  In fact, they are proud to say they are abandoning evenhandedness to do whatever it takes to destroy his presidency.  So, there is no danger of any of the President’s voters believing anything the Media or the Democrats say.

So here we are in the brave new world where a Republican President isn’t afraid of impeachment but the Democrat Speaker of the House is.  Who knows, maybe Pelosi will back down sometime in the next few weeks.  I’m no longer surprised by anything that happens in our politics.  The Democrats stopped following the rules half a century ago and we finally have a man who can fight fire with fire.  This wild ride that we’ve been on since Donald Trump entered the political arena a few years ago promises to upend all the remaining stupidities that the hapless Republican establishment figures put up with in the past.  Here’s hoping that in 2021 President Trump has a reliable Republican congress, a swamp drained of all Deep State saboteurs and a robustly conservative Supreme Court to move us forward into a more hopeful future.

 

 

A Very Unfunny Joke

A priest, a rabbi and a minister happen to meet in a bar.  Everybody has heard these kinds of jokes.  Let’s try a different kind of joke.  A cokehead, a gangster’s nephew and the heir to a ketchup fortune met in Washington.  Well that doesn’t sound as funny.  Wait, it gets better.  Especially since the gangster is the recently dearly departed Whitey Bulger, the cokehead’s father is Joe Biden and John Kerry is the stepfather of the Prince of Ketchup.  Ah, now you see.  Each of these men has been able to turn nepotism into a pot of gold.  There’s definitely something funny going on there but it’s definitely not a coincidence that these three men met up.  Joe Biden and John Kerry were powerful members of the Obama administration who allowed their relatives to trade off their names with foreign governments that could benefit from decisions of the Obama administration.  James Bulger is just the latest manifestation of the Massachusetts proclivity for shady politics.  James’s father, Billy Bulger, was Whitey’s brother but he was also the President of the Massachusetts Senate for eighteen years and used his influence to enrich himself and his family and insinuate them into circles that would perpetuate their influence.  And, of course, John Kerry and Billy Bulger are old Bay State friends.

Apparently, this is what all the hullaballoo was about with the Russia-gate scam.  The Obama administration was a giant grift where the leaders used their relatives to siphon off billions using influence peddling operations.  If China wanted to buy up American military technology companies, well Hunter Biden would partner with them to make it seem legitimate.  It meant greasing some palms, but the Chinese got what they wanted and so did the Bidens.  It sounds a lot like the Clinton uranium scam for the Russians.  And it also includes the Ukraine grift.  And after Hillary and company lost the election, they started the Russiagate frame-up to deflect attention from their own foreign crimes.  And yet somehow, we’re supposed to believe that the same CIA and FBI that seems to have wire-taps in every room in the White House didn’t know a thing about Hillary’s and Biden’s grifts.  That’s the unfunny joke.

I watched Rudy Giuliani make the rounds with the television political pundits.  He laid out the evidence and made the case that all the evidence being ignored by the Press and the Deep State is a mountain compared to the molehill of the alleged whistleblower in the CIA that is all over the front pages of all the MSM outlets.  He declared he is waiting for the Justice Department to do something about it.  But will they?

We are about to find out if Barr is a real American or just another swamp dweller.  With all the information out there, if the Justice Department takes no action at all then basically Trump is on his own.  In fact, wouldn’t Barr know that someone had changed the definition of whistleblower to include hearsay?  Could something as rigged as that rule change happen without alarm bells going off in the Attorney General’s office?

But an even larger issue is the fact that the surveillance state now controls the actions of the President of the United States.  Unelected spies control the actions of our elected officials and spy on all of us too.  President Trump has the unenviable task of draining the swamp while fighting off the nine-headed Lernaean Hydra of mythology that inhabits the swamp.  And just like that mythical beast every time one head is cut off (e.g., Comey or Brennan) three more grow back.

I’ve come to believe that the only way to get back control of our country is to dismantle the surveillance apparatus.  In a way I think it would be a good platform for the President to run on in 2020.  Purging Washington of these wannabe KGB masterminds would be popular with many moderates and independents too.

When I imagine how I would tackle the job that Barr is supposed to do, I imagine assembling all the upper echelons of, let’s say, the CIA and after explaining how allowing the resistance to sabotage the Trump Administration is dereliction of duty I’d fire the whole top level of the organization.  Then while these big shots were being rudely escorted off the premises, I would address their direct reports with the following ultimatum, provide evidence of who the remaining obstructionists are or immediately follow their former bosses out the door.  I would give them at least five minutes to make up their minds if they wanted to cooperate and if they didn’t volunteer information by then I’d have them escorted out the door and move on to the next echelon down.  This plan has the advantage that as you move down the chain of command the importance of a pay check becomes more and more critical.  Eventually you will reach someone who would rather be an employed civil servant than an unemployed resistance fighter.

As you can see, I have a very unsubtle way of looking at things but the point is, cleaning out that rat’s nest needs to be done somehow or other.  When rampant government malfeasance is ignored by the FBI and CIA but these same agencies abuse their power to hamper the legitimately elected representatives of the people it’s time to start over.

Now that the President has started down this road it can’t be more than a week or two before we know whether Barr is there to clean up or cover up the mess.  Fingers crossed.

 

A Busy Week for Right Wing Political Observers

Well, the week has been action packed.  The Climate Nuts are panicking the children and the feeble minded with their Children’s Crusade.  The President humorously mocked the sixteen-year-old climate activist who has been screeching at her supporters all week.  Very funny indeed.

Now Nancy Pelosi and President Trump are sparring over the Ukraine and its investigation of Biden and his son.  Pelosi has begun a formal Impeachment proceeding and all the usual suspects are screaming that treason has been committed and heads will roll.  Of course, the fact that it was Biden and his son that were shaking down the Ukrainians under Obama’s regime is ignored.

And just in case that isn’t enough the British Supreme Court has declared the Prime Minister’s suspension of Parliament illegal.

Interestingly enough Rasmussen shows the President’s approval rating at its highest point in two years (52%).

Well, what does all this mean?  Just that President Trump and his enemies are locked in the death struggle that they’ve had going on for the last four years.  But the difference is he’s eliminated some of the really weak links in his team.  If Jeff Sessions were still Attorney General by now, he would have recused himself in favor of Rod Rosenstein and a new special prosecutor would be drip-dripping stories to the New York Times and Rachel Maddow would be starting her death watch for the Trump Administration again.

But not this time.  Instead, the FBI is investigating the Biden Ukraine scandal and even I am starting to have doubts about Creepy Uncle Joe making it to the convention.  Lately Fauxcahantas has overtaken Bernie in the polls and has even passed Biden in the Iowa poll.  The youth contingent of the progressives is happy to see that an old white guy won’t be the candidate but the party leaders are worried that the Fake Indian won’t get the enthusiastic support of the black community.  In particular, black women haven’t really embraced Warren.  This kind of uncertainty is very good for our side.  It won’t give the Dems as much time to memory hole the dirt on whichever candidate gets through.  And it will make it harder to recruit the Veep for the ticket.  After all Creepy Joe is a strange weirdo but compared to the likes of Warren or Harris, he’s almost Santa Claus.

Many right wing pundits fear Fauxcahantas as the more formidable opponent in 2020.  I will admit that she hasn’t forgotten what state she’s in or mixed up which decade things happened like Plugs Biden has, but she’s a deeply unlikeable woman whose only natural constituency is middle aged professional white women.  Men find her voice comparable to fingernails screeching over a chalk board.  In other words, sort of like Hillary Clinton.

Also, she has publicly stated that she supports Medicaid for all, free healthcare for illegal aliens and the ludicrously expensive and hopelessly ineffective Green New Deal.  I think even Jeb Bush could manage to attack her over those awful policies.  But it won’t be Jeb at the debates it will be the Man Who Buried Hillary.  The only real question is whether he calls her Liarwatha during his opening statement or during the first round of questions.

So far this has been a very interesting week.  Many people feel that President Trump intentionally initiated this Ukraine dust-up to force Pelosi to begin impeachment.  At this point, that seems possible.  The consensus is that Pelosi wanted to save an impeachment drama for closer to the election to hurt the President’s election chances.  But letting the Ukraine investigate Biden’s son would throw a cloud over the current leading candidate’s campaign and breed fear, uncertainty and depression for the Dems.  It’s sort of a lose/lose situation for the Dems.  There is the chance that forcing the country to go through an impeachment process this close to the election and for no good reason could throw the House of Representatives to the Republicans next year and strengthen President Trump’s hand immeasurably.

And finally getting back to the Brexit situation it remains to be seen if Boris Johnson will be willing to allow a Hard Brexit to occur by refusing to request an extension from the EU.  If that occurs, he could possibly be charged with a crime.  This really is an amazing situation.  It will take guts to do it but if he does it might make him the most popular Prime Minister since Winston Churchill.

Stay tuned.  Things seem to be heating up.

 

PJ Media Links to a CNN Report That Discovered That Minnesota is in Play

If CNN admits to being worried about President Trump flipping Minnesota in 2020 then that strikes me as meaning it’s already a fait accompli.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/cnn-discovers-minnesota-is-turning-to-trump/

In 2016 Donald Trump flipped Wisconsin and missed Minnesota by about 40,000 votes.  I’m guessing Minnesota hands us 10 electoral votes next year.  Good news indeed.

 

Bravo to BoJo’s Brexit Brinksmanship

Donald Trump has reintroduced the modern world to Right Wing assertiveness.  He has ignored as “fake news” all the brow-beating that has typically paralyzed Republican politicians and gone his own way on policy matters.  He tears up old policy like NAFTA that doesn’t suit him and blazes a negotiating trail that leaves his opponents in the dust.  When President Trump called Boris Johnson, “Britain Trump,” he is hitting on something that has a basis in fact.  It’s not that the two men are highly similar in the details of their lives and philosophy.  It’s the fact that they are willing to throw the dice.  It’s their audacity.  Both men have won big by not playing it safe.

Now Boris Johnson is gambling on a grand scale.  He’s setting up a make or break scenario for himself, for his premiership, for the Tories, for the Brexit campaign and even for British independence, all on one throw of the dice.  It’s a two-stage strategy to preserve the Hard Brexit.

The first stage is to cow the Remainers from voting against Hard Brexit by threatening to oust them from the party and deselect them from running as Tories in their re-elections.  If this succeeds then Johnson’s hand is strengthened in his negotiations with the EU but, all else failing, a Hard Brexit will occur on October 31st.  But if the Remainers refuse to follow his lead on Hard Brexit then stage two is calling for a General Election.  And the audacity of this move would be Homeric.  Now Johnson is bringing into play Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party to essentially replace Remainers in both the Tory and Labour Parties in order to gain a majority in Parliament for the Brexit Movement.  That is indeed a gutsy move.  What if it fails.  Johnson would be out as PM.  The Tories would be a spent force.  Brexit would be revoked and the EU and the Remainers would reign supreme.  And even if the Brexit Party swings the majority to Pro-Brexit, who is to say that Nigel Farage will give Boris Johnson the premiership back?  It’s entirely possible that Farage could end up as Prime Minister.  After all Theresa May called for a General Election in order to strengthen her hand when she was trying to negotiate the Brexit and all it did was lose her the Tory majority she already had.  A General Election is the ultimate toss of the dice.

So, does that mean I’m saying that Boris Johnson is being rash in forcing the issue on Hard Brexit?  Hell no!

Boris has no choice.  His adversaries have rigged the game.  Much as in the United States both major parties are full of globalists who are more beholden to corporate and elitist interests than they are to the will of the people who elected them.  His only choice is to threaten these frauds with the only punishment they truly fear, namely being cast out of their lucrative, powerful government jobs that provide them with such a comfortable and privileged lifestyle to which they have become so thoroughly accustomed.  He is making them accountable to the people they allegedly represent.

So, he has no choice but throw the dice.  But that doesn’t mean he should not be greatly praised for doing it.  Think of the other allegedly conservative politicians who when confronted with choices like this surrender and follow the path the Left has goaded them toward.  Theresa May is the latest example but the list is literally endless and is prominently sprinkled with George Bushes of various middle names.

So, kudos to you Boris Johnson.  I hope the Remainers cave and make your life easy.  In fact, I actually hope you get the chance to negotiate a few of the terms of the Brexit with those geniuses in Brussels.  It would do them some good to actually start learning again what it means to treat with equals instead of dictating to the proles.  It might save them from the Grexit and the Itexit and even the Frexit.  But then again maybe they should get everything they’ve earned, with interest.
