I know, I know. We’re not going to vote our way out of this. Blah, blah, blah. But, damn, that Lake victory hit the spot. Maybe all of this is the dead cat bounce after hitting bottom in 2020 but right now I’ll take it. It’s just plain enjoyable to be on the winning side of these things. Whether it’s real or not, it feels like progress.
I saw that Dick Cheney put out a video defending his daughter by declaring that, “In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who has been a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump.” Boy, that’s rich. The Democrats allow thugs to burn down the cities of America. They use blatant voter fraud to foist a lying grafter on us as president while locking down the country for two years and destroying the economy. But Donald Trump is dangerous.
I read that Sinema is going to sign off on the mini-Build Back Better boondoggle. No surprise there. The fix was in with Manchin. I guess he got his cut of the pie. Figures she’d be in there somewhere too. That’s alright. Both of them are up in 2024. They’ll be remembered by their voters.
I was reading a speech that Hungarian leader Victor Orban gave recently. It’s remarkable how he openly names the real threats that face western countries. I guess when your party has a supermajority in the parliament you can speak honestly. He talks of the dangers of unchecked third world immigration and he also names the LGBTQ agenda of much of the western countries as the biggest external threats. But he also names the break down of the traditional family and the associated failure of women to bear enough children as the biggest internal threat.
This analysis is spot on. It’s a long speech and also has long sections on the energy crisis and the Ukrainian war. These other problems area also very grave, especially the climate hoax. But I think they might be self-correcting. After all, there’s nothing like losing your toes to frostbite to reinforce how important fossil fuels really are to our world.
Whoever the leaders of an actual conservative movement turn out to be, they should consult with Orban. He’s one of the few leaders who understand the challenges facing us. He gave a speech at CPAC yesterday. I just started to listen to it. Very exciting, very upbeat.
So, there’s all kinds of hopeful things happening right now. And in eleven days Liz Cheney gets the boot from the voters of the great state of Wyoming so the beat goes on. I’m sure I could dwell on the negatives. After all, the Chi-Coms didn’t take Nancy Pelosi off our hands and George Soros still walks the earth sowing destruction in all directions. But good things are happening. We’re winning elections and guys like Ron DeSantis are using their power to stop the bad guys from running roughshod over us in places like Florida.
You can always be depressed and sometimes I am. But not today. Smell the roses, enjoy the day.
