Culture Shock And Awe

As luck would have it, we are gifted with another issue in a contested election. Well, one of those assumptions is correct anyway.

So it is a perceived volitile election and that opens the door wide for the mischief of the left. I mean what more could they try after a coup, special counsel investigation and even an impeachment just this year?

You got to hand it to the left to try to get out and stomp on the election before it even got kicked off. And dirt is their specialty. After all, they have been playing the culture war for years to try to abolish the right.

But how come Democrats never seem to get caught up in cancel culture?

Anyway, so the right insists on nominating and confirming a Supreme Court nominee and all their usual tactics come out. Smear smear, even to the point of changing the definition of packing the Supreme Court. A legitimate confirmation is now packing the Court. FDR must be laughing at that one.

All this should tell us that the perception polls we are fed are wrong. Why else would they be so worried? Remember their suppress the vote game in 2016. People see through it.

So they jumped on a Supreme Court nominee like a shark on chum. Villainize her, attack, attack. But she is too good for that. There’s no there there. Even their own base admits the only problem with her was the timing of the nomination. In other words, the Constitution. At least they raised lots of money on Roe fear.

After two days of testimony, all they could do is talk about Obamacare. So they went for the cheap shot: send a message about Obamacare to the High Court through the hearings. Just hope that it resonates in the hall with the Robed ones already seated.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden runs his whole campaign on politicizing a pandemic after his racism angle died on the vine. He weaponized it for months now. But even that is falling apart, a few revelations came out to wreck that train.

WHO announced lock downs should not be the preferred method of dealing with COVID. Then an article broke news that Coronavirus may be winding down. NYT also reported the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed has largely been a success. Oops.

“Despite the chaos in day-to-day politics and the fighting over issues like masks and lockdowns, Operation Warp Speed — the government’s agreement to subsidize vaccine companies’ clinical trials and manufacturing costs — appears to have been working with remarkable efficiency.” –NYT

Then even Dems could not get traction in SCOTUS hearings by using COVID to delay or cancel hearings. The pandemic-pulooza did not work well in the hearings against Repubicans either because there sat Amey Coney Barrett with her mid-western smile, willing to take anything they threw at her. Damn, the culture wars did not even get traction as Roe-Wade Flopped.

In fact, it looked like the people are so pleased with her that they now think confirmation is the right thing to do. So what if there is an election going on?

Imagine on the heels of all those failures, there are going to be disgruntled leftists somewhere. I mean they didn’t even get to stage a protest in the Capitol against her confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono was left to ask a question if Barrett had ever committed sexual assault or harassment since being an adult? Just a standard question now.

When in doubt fire the biggest blank you can find, even if it is empty.

About the only ones who don’t recognize the epic failure that all this has been is CNN. They are still chasing super-spreader events, while spreading manure everywhere. But wait, wasn’t there a steroid rage angle on Trump last week? Never mind.

Oh, that was before the Pence vs Harris debate. You know it was a bad night for Democrats when all they had was the talk about a fly that landed on Mike Pence’s hair. Maybe it was trying to tell them something. But they missed any warning sent them. Kamala’s facial expressions were more than enough distraction from a fly.

Now, one more thing rolls down the empty highway of the Left. After the second hearings, a Leftist named Garrison Keillor went on Twitter to reveal at least his exhaustion with their whole agenda. He wasted no time throwing Roe V Wade under the bus in the name of national unity. Say what? So for your entertainment pleasure, here is the Tweet captured that set off a firestorm of infighting among Leftist allies. Too soon, is it?

If it is one thing it hasn’t been on the Left, it is boring. Depressing maybe, but not boring.
Does that sound like Dems just might be in full meltdown mode?

Closer Argument

Even though it seems more like an election season this year, we are still coming up on the eve of election day 2020. Since Michelle put out a closer for team Obamas, it may be time to think out one on the right. If you didn’t see Michelle’s, it is a real riot.

Let me see if I can boil this down for even the squeamish anti-Trumers. (never-Trumpers may never go along) And it does not take a lot of thought, calculation, or even hubris.

Over the past many years, many of us have been compelled, even forced, to hold our noses to vote for a candidate we didn’t like. There was Romney, McCain, even Bush at times.

We understood the importance of the times and regretfully bit our tongues to vote for the choice the GOP put up. Sure, we complained knowing it was not the right choice but we voted for him. We understood the consequences of not voting for him.

Now here we are and just once ask you to vote for the leader of our party — the only option to the Left’s takeover of America. You know it and we know it. Debate is over.

This is the most consequential election in modern history. Can’t you hold your nose and bite your tongue for the good? What do you get for abstaining or throwing away a vote?

We’ve done it many times. If you don’t know or understand the threat we face from progressives (or however they identify), then may God have mercy on you, and us.

Complaining about the Transition Integrity Project’s Election Theft Plan Can Be Dangerous

Complaining about the Transition Integrity Project’s Election Theft Plan Can Be Dangerous

by Chris Farrell — Gatestone Institute
September 25, 2020

  • It seems that criticizing the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) and their plan to disrupt and steal the 2020 presidential election can be dangerous.
  • So — the leadership of TIP has spoken. Now you know their thinking, their motives and their true objectives. It seems Nils Gilman wants Michael Anton executed.
  • The brutality and viciousness of Marxism and its adherents is on display. Those that may have held reservations or harbored some doubt on my analysis of what TIP really had in store for the election now have their answers.
  • If Gilman advocates executing someone by firing squad for daring to question TIP, what other penalties and extraordinary measures were discussed by the supposed bipartisan arbiters of the electoral process? How is this “normal?”
  • Are you disturbed by how your news information is “curated?”

It seems that criticizing the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) and their plan to disrupt and steal the 2020 presidential election can be dangerous. Michael Anton, a former Trump administration official and now of the Claremont Institute, published an article titled, “The Coming Coup” that seems to have caught the attention of TIP co-founder Nils Gilman. According to the journalist Natalie Winters:

“Gilman, who serves as Vice President of Programs at the Chinese Communist Party-linked Berggruen Institute, took to Twitter to express his desire that Anton be executed in the same fashion as Robert Brasillach.

“Specifically, he insisted ‘Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate.'”

Controversial Supreme Pick Policies

As much as they say 2020 is laced with controversy, and that this Supreme vacancy is controversial, I beg to differ with that hogwash.

This is not controversial at all. RBG passed away under a Trump Presidency and he has the duty to nominate a replacement. Very simple. Maybe they don’t like that.

Then the Constitution gives the Senate the power of Advice and Consent. (we might bicker at some other times a little over advise vs. advice)

“[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.”

But we have had over 100 days of riots against the Constitution. The violence spread to major cities across America. Or as I call them, anti-peace rallies. We heard that voice of hate and anti-Americanism, loud and clear.

We heard the voices of the left when they promised to stack and pack the Supreme Court with ideological clones of the Left when they get the opportunity. We heard it clear.

We heard them when they said the Constitutional Electoral College process for elections has to go. We heard them vote for mob rule every chance they got. We heard them support rioting radicals in Seattle and Oregon, and defend it all as peaceful protesting.

We heard them declaring rioting and looting is some Constitutional right to be respected and allowed to continue. That would stand the First Amendment on its head, but who cares? They want a living, breathing, evolving Constitution as flexibe as Gumby, which will grant them any desire. We heard them, loudly.

And we heard Democrats like Pelosi when they moved forward with and refused to hold a vote on the impeachment in the House. No, no process rules or even the Constitution matters to progressive Leftists disguised as Democrats.

Now we hear threats from Schumer and Pelosi if they don’t get their way. Remember Schumer at the steps of the Supreme Court shaking his fist to the crowd, making personal threats at justices to give us what we want, or else there will be hell or impeachment.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions. We will tell President Trump and Senate Republicans, who have stacked the court with right-wing ideologues, that you will be gone in November, and you’ll never be able to do this again.” — Schumer, Roll Call, March 5, 2020

So their voices were heard. In fact, Leftists’ screams are so loud you can barely hear anything else. Give the people a say, they tell us now. But the people had their say in 2016, and again in 2018, on Supreme Court issues. They didn’t like it.

And Democrats ignored it, then refused to accept the results of that election. Voices matter! Votes matter as well. And, like Obama said, elections have consequences.

So now, in view of Trump doing his duty and McConnell’s Senate following through, they tell us there will be consequences if they don’t get their way. Their threats are loud and clear; we hear them too. But we’ve already had the summer of riots. We’ve already had countless threats how these Leftists want to “bring down the whole thing.”

We’ve had them attack law and order for months with defunding and abolishing police schemes. They have carried the banner of Resistance down a flame-lit road to sedition, for 4 years. Do you think rules, laws or even the Constitution mean anything to these people?

They told us they will change the whole structure of the Supreme Court to favor the Left and will abolish the Electoral College. They’ll alter Senate rules. They proved they would run over or destroy anyone in their way by cancel culture or any means possible.

However, they lecture us on following some mythical rules that don’t even exist. We are told that we have no choice on socialism or commie agendas.(even the environment supports it, they claim) And they don’t want to honor the people’s voice on that. Just do it. No referendums, no votes, no public discussions about it. And they threaten us that, if we don’t accept it, they will burn the whole thing down if they don’t get their way.

Against a dark backdrop of the season of hate, and with fierce resistance from the Left on everything, it must seem radical then for Republicans to be doing exactly what they should Constitutionally be doing.

Only Democrats and media could turn that into a miscarriage of justice or controversy.

On Scalia, Obama had the power to nominate, which he did. But the Republican-controlled Senate had the power of advice and consent, which they exercised. All fairly benign, except to the toxic liberal minds.

Should we be surprised Democrats, unbound by Constitutional limits or law, would do “anything necessary” to get and keep power? Their oath means nothing since they believe in a future Utopia, foreign to this Constitution, while hating everything in the present.

The good news is that I’ve been hearing how many Dems have taken the initiative to Walk Away from the Democrat plantation, disgusted. We hear you!

Coup In The Works

Okay kiddies, let the grownups in the room speak about serious matters civilly now. Or at least take their best crack at it. But know they are serious about what they are doing.

The Coming Coup?

Michael Anton

Essay — 09.04.2020

Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: “Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.”

All this enthused Joe Biden, who threw subtlety to the winds. The former United States Senator (for 26 years) and Vice President (for eight) has not once, not twice, but thrice confidently asserted that the military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. Another former Vice President, Al Gore, publicly agreed.

One might dismiss such comments as the ravings of a dementia patient and a has-been who never got over his own electoral loss. But before you do, consider also this. Over the summer a story was deliberately leaked to the press of a meeting at which 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks got together (on George Soros’s dime) to “game out” various outcomes of the 2020 election. One such outcome was a clear Trump win. In that eventuality, former Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, playing Biden, refused to concede, pressured states that Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote, and trusted that the military would take care of the rest.

The leaked report from the exercise darkly concluded that “technocratic solutions, courts, and reliance on elites observing norms are not the answer here,” promising that what would follow the November election would be “a street fight, not a legal battle.”

Two more data points (among several that could be provided). Over the summer, two former Army officers, both prominent in the Democrat-aligned “national security” think tank world, wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in which they urged him to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to drag President Trump from the Oval Office at precisely 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021.

About a month later, Hillary Clinton declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The old English major in me interprets the word “any” to mean “no,” “none,” “nada,” “niente,” “zero,” “zilch” “bupkis”…you get the idea.

This doesn’t sound like the rhetoric of a political party confident it will win an upcoming election. …./ (must read)

As that old saying goes, if it happens in politics, you can bet it was planned. And it will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Let’s call it Coup On Main Street.

So while the Democrats and media openly broadcast their outrage over their oetty grievances with Trump, this is what they have brewing among their ruling class elites.

Déjà vu Election Season

Since some of the lead up to this election is starting to remind me of the 2000 election, I thought it would be nice to take a retro look back at it to see what I find.

We all remember that election probably as if it were yesterday because of how traumatic it was. Trauma can do that often etching something in your mind so as not to be lost.

We know how it ended but that was not the issue. It was contested every which way possible; it went on for months – which at times felt like years. At least then it was a standard election until all hell broke loose on election day.

Remember the recounts and the vote-mining operations?

In the end it was a confirmation from the Supreme Court that granted Bush the presidency. That’s when it got even worse. Never satisfied with the results, Dems persisted.

Democrats never quite accepted it and that went on for some time. At least until the 911 attacks wiped it off the top of the list. It was a volatile time even before that.

Democrats did not seem to mind the litigation process. As long as it was in limbo, they didn’t care. Remember the every vote counts and count every vote chants.

Now that is where the 2020 election is starting to feel a lot like that one. I mean 3 months away and they are already posturing for something, problems, contesting results. The story is Biden has over 300 layers already working on it.

No doubt they are war-gaming any scenario so they have an active plan on how to proceed. You can’t plan enough.

One probable prediction is that it may never be considered settled if Trump is declared winner in the end. Try to plan for that? All those plans will make us a miserable and unsettled country. That doesn’t seem to bother the Left at all. As long as they are trying to get the outcome they want.

There is a pattern here.

They tried a coup, a counterintelligence investigation, a special counsel probe and investigations in Congress over three years to its results, then to an impeachment. All that did not produce the outcome they wanted.

First, they went after Michael Flynn from day one to try to breach Trump’s campaign and his presidency after elected. They even tried parlaying some of it into the Southern District of NY courts and the DC Courts to probe Trump any way they could.

They took down his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, surveilled people from the campaign like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos even before he was elected. Lied to FISA. They went after Donald Trump Jr. and Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, since election. They went after Roger Stone. All this got them a few indictments but not on colluding with Russians in the Campaign. Still, they continued undeterred.

Along came a phone call to Ukraine, so they turned it into an investigation after the Special Counsel failed to give them what they wanted. Then they translated that phone call into an impeachment trial – which, in reality, they had been working on since Trump came in.

Aka the kitchen sink impeachment. This took them up to reelection year. It failed in the Senate, but they could always keep that investigation open for future use. Keep on digging.

But then came the pandemic from China as the impeachment failed. So they politicized and used that pandemic to attack Trump. Forget the source as China; it was now the Trump pandemic. They got all the mileage they could out of that up to their DNC convention.

Ah, in comes a new factor, mail-in voting, perfect for politicizing and weaponizing against Trump. (I only hope that any future presidential prospects on the right are taking note of it all.) This is how they operate.

The projection election.

So now they have basically decided to question this election by saying Trump is trying to steal it. Trump is rigging the election. Democracy is being stolen. Only the undermining democracy is coming from the Democrats. It’s something they are skilled in and have been working at for about 20 years now. They didn’t have to unearth their plans with Obama because he won, but it was there for the use.

Actually, democracy has been under siege and attack since Trump won the 2016 election. Only this time they didn’t stop contesting it. They basically rolled in all these other processes and battles to it. But the point in it all is to undermine the democratic process and legitimate election in 2016.

The fight went on from 2016 right up until months before the next election, which is where we are. So it is an ongoing battle. And this should likely take us right into January.

I think it was January 6th when the results were all certified in the 2000 election. This time, they can even try to blow past that if they have to. They want to push everything right up to inauguration day. Then the fun starts.

But of course all that extra-curricular activity could be avoided by Trump losing on election day, or conceding at some point. Other than that you might say this election is never going to end until the end of Trump’s second term. It will always be in play. That is untl they get the result they want.

Democrats like to write fiction, they are just not very good on the endings.

’68 Wants Its Candidate Back

There is a positive story to all this political speculation and posturing. Well, if you are not a diehard Democrat anyway.

But all you have to do is close your eyes for a minute and think it is 1968 again, with all the political turmoil, protests and unrest. It is also a strange election year.

Joe Biden is Hubert Humphrey, who was the beneficiary of being VP in an administration under which all the turmoil and problems blossomed. He tried to stand up a nice run for president while ignoring that he was present when the actions occurred. Does running against oneself sound familiar? It should.

He too wanted to ride a popular tide right into the Oval Office but it didn’t work out that way. He tried to remain oblivious to current realities.

Humphrey also had a long Senate career record plus experience as VP. But he didn’t campaign as he should have. He expected to just slip right in there, with all the pomp and circumstance his recognition provided. The office seemed to be there for the taking.

But listen to what Humphrey’s bio says:

“As vice president during 1968—arguably the United States’ most politically turbulent post-World War II year—Hubert Humphrey faced an excruciating test of statesmanship. During a time of war in Southeast Asia when the stakes for this nation were great, Humphrey confronted an agonizing choice: whether to remain loyal to his president or to the dictates of his conscience. His failure to reconcile these powerful claims cost him the presidency. Yet few men, placed in his position, could have walked so agonizing a tightrope over so polarized a nation.”

The Democrats projected an image of disorganization and chaos to the nation that year, as the party at one time or another split as many as four ways into factions supporting Humphrey, Johnson, Eugene McCarthy, and George Wallace.” [source]

At least Humphrey had been an effective Senator but his consternation as VP, and the later failures in his presidential campaign to nowhere, did him in.

Neither Humphrey or now Biden were being honest about present reality.

Biden is running on the fumes of propped up polls and media sycophants’ illusions. The people didn’t buy it for Humphrey and they shouldn’t buy it with Biden.

Joe’s already hidden and sealed his records in secrecy. Kamala Harris has had the luxury of the same. They simply believe they are the untouchables – in a world where everything is scrutinized, including Obama’s soured, unproductive tenure under a shadow of scandals.

But in Humphrey’s case, his earlier accomplishments did not match up to his dismal failures in the administration and his campaign. While this could easily turn into a piece on Humphrey, it is not. He only makes the example.

It is Joe Biden who, less gifted than Hubert, has the uphill task. And that is all that matters. If Humphrey had to struggle, how much more a struggle is it for Biden – who does not have Hubert’s gift of extreme gab but the gift of gaffe. He has so much to explain for.

Contrarily, Biden is the one with all this to answer for but who skips along on Obama’s drafting coattails. His vast foreign policy experience was wrong and misguided at every step. Then corruption under Obama is the worst in history. Yet there he stands as if he were the savior, rather than quack in the basement, as Dems run toward communism.

You all know Biden and his record by now, well what is not sealed in a vault at the university. It is not a stellar example of anything.

Now the lesson to take from this is this: if Humphrey with a real record on civil rights and reform, under the pressures of a Democrat revolt, loses; then Biden, with a dismal record on anything and backdrop of a Marxist meltdown, should spontaneously combust into thin air. (no matter who he is running with)

Welcome to AA: “Hi, I’m Hubert I mean Joe Biden, Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m a loser. Come on, man!”

Keep On

What do we do? We should continue to pray for our country, the people, and ourselves. Pray we overcome this evil mist hovering across our country.It cannot defeat us.

Other than that, elections will still come on November 3rd and we need to vote. But now with what states have done in mail-in voting, and Dems’ other antics, we should realize it will be weeks before we know a final result on the election. You can expect delay.

I’m hearing, thinking and figuring it will take at least a month to count votes. I don’t see how to avoid that scenario. It should make Bush vs. Gore look like child’s play.

I get a reminder every time I look at my mail. There are no postmark dates anymore. Well, what does that tell us?

Keep on….. but knees are for praying.

Obama VS. Trump 2020

The election in 2020 could end up being one between Obama and Trump, where none of the regular factors of political campaigns apply. You only have to revisit the 2012 election for a preview.

This thesis may seem anecdotally boring to those on the right, while it seems ridiculous to those on the left. It really depends on which side you are. Though both will probably be surprised in the end, if I am correct.

The 2012 election beween Romney and Obama was a bit of a misnomer. Obama was not in a comfortably favored spot by his record and what he had done so far without vetting. There were underlying issues to use against him.

The problem was that Romney did not prosecute the case against Obama. And in the final weeks of the election he all but abandoned the campaign, for whatever reasons. It doesn’t really matter for this case why.

Backing up to his initial race. Obama really ran as an outsider though that was entirely questionable. But in 2012, his campaign guru David Plouffe came up with the strategy – the only one he said could work – to run Obama as a non-incumbent candidate. So the strategy was to run an insurgent caampaign.

That is odd for a supposed likeable, successful president. Only he had a lot to run from. See Obama had a whole list of baggage that plagued him as the perenial insider, while they needed to make him an outsider. An impossible task, you might think. That strategy is like running against one’s self and one’s own record.

Then, helped by Romney’s many failures as a candidate, it was not a problem.

Donald Trump does not have the same problem Obanma had. He has an adequate record of change, he is the ultimate outsider, and yet he has the incumbent advantage he is is not afraid of. He also has the economic powerhouse verses the anti-capitalist radicals.

Actually, Trump has been personally running against Obama all along. First when he ran; and then ever since in every investigation and every witch-hunt contrived against him. Then shedding the policies of Obama to deconstruct the administrative state. It seems to be a very personal rivalry from Obama’s perspective that he never let go of. Trump is tasked with combating the administrative Deep State Obama built. He made strides

Trump also governs as an outsider. The proof is all over the media. And people appreciate his perseverance on issues that they have been fighting against for years.

He’s changed things from the same old failed politics of usual into including the voice of the people. Something Obama could never do. Political correctness has taken a back seat to right and wrong. It all reinforces the image of an outsider in Washington shaking up the status quo. As if that were even possible before.

Now Joe Biden is running with a peculiar predicament. He wants to run as an insurgent while being the consummate insider. That would be impossible. He needs to be the insurgent riding to the rescue with a credible reputation. He needs to have the high road even after years of taking the low road. He is the the ultimate creature of the swamp.

It could only be a schizophrenic campaign. One day Joe is railing as an outsider; the next he is lecturing with all his inside experience of a 44 year card-carrying veteran of Washington politics, as a made man. He’ll say he was right there with Obama making the decisions. Then he’ll come back and say we need accountable government — except Obama and Biden were not responsible or held accountable for anything. He’ll claim we need reforms; but no, Trump has been the ultimate reformer changing the way the system works. Biden will say we need to go forward, while trying to drag us back to the cesspool of Obama years. (before that was GW Bush)

Now, coming into view, we have the ideal election between status quo big-government politics and Trump’s small government, people-power approach. And no one represents big-government orthodoxy more than the Obama presidency. Biden is also a high priest of big-government. Now that the Dems have jettisoned working people, all that is left is the institutional ruling class that they represent with every move they make. Biden is the poster boy, even though many leftists don’t think he is radical or progressive enough.

Pay to play, corruption, secrecy in DC, career politics and elite ruling class are badges of honor in Biden’s campaign. He is the swamp personified that won’t let go..

However, what we are really running against is Obama. He is behind the scenes of it all in the shadowy swamp of DC and the DNC. Joe is only a front man for all Obama represented. Obama’s record is Joe’s. Even Hillary was never the placeholder that Biden is.

So it is a defacto referendum on Obama, like the real campaign challenge he never had in 2012. Let’s be honest, the real power beind Biden’s campaign is Obama and the Obamafiles sitting in the wings. Sure there are some Hillary people, but the force is with the Obama folks who have all signed on to the Bernie progressive formula for a poorer, anti-carbon, pro-corruption Amerika. Where identity is everything, individuals are nothing.

But that is Obama to a tee. And all Obama’s baggage is just layered on top of the wagon train. We don’t have to guess what Joe Obama would do. We have the proof.

After all, who was Obama running against in 2008? No, it was not McCain. It was George W Bush. But McCain was not even a placeholder for Bush. Obama literally ran against a former 2-term president the entire time.

Trump has the advantage that this is Obama’s record. To Obama, it seems everything he hoped for without being held accountable for the scandals and corruption. But he is wrong. Biden is all the negative and none of the positive. And I’m pretty sure there never was any positive to Obama. This is Obama 3.0. First was the outsider candidate, then was the insurgent incumbent, then came the invisible candidate hiding behind the campaign.

And all we and Trump have to do is prosecute the case because everything is on the table. It’s all fair game. There cannot be any “this has nothing to do with Obama.” It all has everything to do with Obama. It is Obama. We’re really running against Obama the candidate and his administration, with his entire record.

In fact, the biggest mistake would be not running against Obama and his record. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Exactly what Dems don’t want. And it is very personal.

The Race Is On

Democrats have a competition problem. When they can’t compete with their opponents, they resort to the their tried and true methods of shutting down their opponent however they can. Speech, lashing out at supporters, breaking kneecaps are all on the table.

On the other side to Democrat candidates, Bernie is over there running a public auction for the federal coffers. He’s agreed to give them whatever they want to ascend him and his ideology into office. After all, that is what it is about to Democrats.

Other candidates know they can’t compete with that. There is no limit to what Bernie can promise them. So what can other Democrats do? Nothing.

Besides that, Bernie has the Party split every way imaginable: young and old, rich and poor, class and profession, parents and children. And he has catered to his preference in each of those sides. It is class warfare multiplied by 10 x 100.

If you haven’t had the thrill of being called a “boomer” yet, just wait. They are at war with anything or anyone they see as standing in their way. Politics is personal to them.

And he has it figured out; so he is willing to promise the masses (anyone but the 1-5%) anything they want. Then he simply tells them the rich will pay for it all. Bernie doesn’t even know the total cost of all his giveaways, but he knows the rich will pay for it.

Take that to the socialist bank.

He can’t know because when you promise free college and free healthcare to illegals, they’ll come and keep coming in droves. It is ever-growing making it impossible to count real cost. So no one can know the cost in 2 years let alone in 5 years. Whatever we’re offering?

Other Democrats are just flailing in the wind compared to the Bern auction. Bernie is always paying the highest price for voters. Actually we are.

But Bernie also knew one other thing Dems should all know. The Democrats always flock toward the real leftist. It is hard to outrun someone from the right in the Democrat Party. They must think you are really a candidate of the Left to get behind you. They want proof on things like baby slaughtering, manna from Gov’t, open borders or pro-crime.

Sorry Pete Buttigieg, your resume is a bit blank. I mean we are pretty sure you are a staunch Marxist-progressive but we’d like to see more evidence not platitudes.

And the last thing these progressive Leftists want is to be told “no” or that can’t happen. That is punching one’s expiration date because one can never go far enough left for them. Further is what this is all about.

One practical example. Everyone seems outraged over Bernie’s Castro remarks but his China one is even worse. Bernie claimed China’s communist system has raised more people out of poverty than anything else in the world. He insinuated that is a good thing.

Well, if you must give up your personal political freedom for better economic circumstances that is a good trade off? Just as long as you support the power who bestows the economic blessings on you. But that rationalization sounds just like the Democrat Party. Forfeit your individual political freedom and vote to them, and they will take care of you. Plantation politics. So vote for your class, status, race, etc. not your individual preference. And as long as they all vote to support the Mao progressives, what’s the problem?

Socialism Is On The Ballot In 2020

Socialism is very much on the ballot in the 2020 election. How could it not be?

When did this socialism takeover happen? Oh, it is not a recent discovery. It would have to go way back. But they kept that closet closed and pretty well guarded. Evidenced by how Bernie was not mainstream until recent years. He wasn’t a rock star. He was a lead weight they did not want to get too tied to.

But then you have to make an admission about the current state of Democrats. There are a lot of socialism deniers in the Democrat Party. (That is not the same as denying socialism) They can disassociate with the term socialist if they want to. They can call it progressive like they usually do. They can even deny that it is about socialism.

But that flies in the face of the truth. We can see it is all about socialism. And has been for some time. Sure they are in denial of most everything, except Bernie.

Something else is going on. Notice the lamestream media, for instance. Just look at the last few weeks. They are struggling because they really cannot address the Bernie issue. Even CNN and MSNBC frowned and danced around the fact that Bernie was gaining in the polls. Then when he started winning they were dumbstruck. Why? That is another matter.

Media were not happy and looking for anyone else they could hold up and promote besides Bernie. See all the attention that went toward Mike Bloomberg? But it is BS in reality. They bemoaned Bernie sucking up all the oxygen. They reject the idea that this is all about socialism. They searched for a way to explain it.

If they didn’t like it, they had one choice, vet him and the ideas he’s pushes like a flood. Do they do that? No.

In the last few days, they are grieving the prospect he is winning and what it means for the Party. They sit and discuss their dislike that he is cannibalizing the primaries and the entire party. (he’s had some practice and never stopped campaigning since 2016)

They gripe about it and yet do not talk about the real problem. They will not address Bernie, his character, record, or ideas. They won’t talk about his bio in depth. (this man who has smitten the base by storm) They will not address the issues he is talking about, the cost or the consequences, in depth.

His plans are dismissed like yesterday’s news and tossed into the corner. The cost is not mentioned. The foreign policy he supports is not given an airing. So why not?

Now you know, it is because all those ideas are popular and supported by people. (now anyway) So they cannot criticize the ideas because they are the main entree on DNC’s menu. Of course they are popular. He is the one bold enough to run with them like a true radical. But he does not really explain them because he doesn’t have to, with an empathetic media and cheer leading Marxists in the party.

In other words, they do not dare attack what they all believe in. They all like and believe in these things. It is incredible how they will not take on or criticize the substance of all Bernie’s plans. So they do not like the socialism label because it has a bad image.

Yet they support all the ingredients of socialism. They deny the effects, but they will not deny the ideas. It is very much them. It is nothing new.

Now the dirty little secret is out, they won’t call out the ideas. They will not address the socialism issue either. It is the last thing Democrats want to talk about. “Russia, Russia!”

So they can say they are not socialists all they want. But if they are supporting and voting for Bernie; if they support the ideas and agenda; then they are socialists just the same — no matter what they claim.

When they actively support the ideas and campaign, they are socialists. In some ways they are the worst kind because they don’t realize it. Now it’s the cool morality of socialism.

That is why we cannot say it recently happened. This is who Democrats are; Bernie finally put an end to the questions. But that is who they have been been all along though there was a cognitive denial about it. Bernie already had commies and socialists onboard.

Yet they endorsed all the ideas and basic tenets of socialism for years. The closet is now open and the skeletons loom larger than life.

Looking for Mr. Good Barr in all the wrong places?

So were those hopes for AG Barr’s pending justice in vain, once again, misplaced or wildly unjustified to begin with? Have we engaged in another game of wait and see only to, in the end, see nothing warranting the long wait? The odds are not good either.

Has the Deep State beaten Bill Barr?

By Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory [excerpts]

“Among law-and-order conservatives and defenders of Trump, it was widely hoped that Barr would be an A.G. unintimidated by the Deep State, with the intestinal fortitude to push back against a DOJ corrupted by progressive lawyers and grandiose bureaucrats blinded by their irrational and atavistic hatred for Trump. Perhaps Barr might even mete out long delayed justice to the chief plotters,”…./

“Barr was confirmed on Valentine’s Day 2019. In the year since Barr’s confirmation, conservative stalwarts from Roger Simon to Sean Hannity have sung the praises of Barr and his deputy, John Durham, all but guaranteeing criminal indictments any day now against senior members of the Obama administration (which had spied on Trump’s campaign and colluded with multiple foreign actors to subvert American democracy, both before and after the 2016 election)”…/.

“Skeptical conservative voters were admonished to be patient, and that the likes of Comey, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, and Brennan would soon be charged for their crimes and jailed. Yet, amid the frantic waving of pom-poms, something perfectly predictable happened on the way to the Deep State’s day of reckoning. The days turned to into weeks, the weeks into months, and now a full year.”

Still waiting, and waiting!

Maybe the one thing that will shock the conscience in the end is that there will be no accountability for it all? America that cannot be, can it?

Mini-Mike and Hillary

Well, since Bloomberg seems to be sucking up all the oxygen, mostly because media have been giving it to him, there is now a new idea floated out there.

How about Bloomberg picking Hillary as a running mate VP?
You can read about it here. Matt Drudge was pushing it as an exclusive.

Welcome to the Grand TZ of Twilight Zones

In a strange and sinister plot, Democrats claim to be saving democracy while trying to destroy the Republic that made it possible.

They make a mockery of the very elections they claim to be protecting. With every chant about cheating in the election, they say the election and the results will be poisoned if Trump is allowed to stay in it. So cheat the election by impeachment.

These are people who did not accept the results of the last election hell bent on denying the results of the next one, before the first vote is even cast.

Where are you Rod Sterling? We have just entered the TZ of Twilight Zones. Chris Coons tells a CNN reporter that he thought Adam Schiff’s closing argument – to be generous – was “compelling and very forceful.”

It is a coup. They generally are forceful.

Democrats responded to the defense argument that it is an election year with months before an election, when people will decide. They claim this argument is ridiculous that you can’t impeach a president before an election. In fact, they say, the pending election is the reason he must be impeached and thrown out of office.

Rod, we could use you! Of course Democrats’ arguments sound forceful; it’s a coup!

Extortion of Process

Let me explain just one part of how the Democrats plan to use the impeachment process to serve their political ends. You know the masters of scamming the process.

It goes like this, as described by one Democrat Senator to CNN: first the Democrats put on their case. Then president’s team puts on the president’s defense.

But unlike in a regular trial, there is no opportunity for the House Managers’ rebuttal to Trump’s defense. What to do? Then the questions period closes out the process.

So — this is the great part — according to the Senator, Democrat Senators will use their super nifty questions period that follows to do that partisan rebuttal work against Trump. What part of this process is not politicized, hedged and schemed by Democrats?

And you know what that will look like. All the activist Democrats, House Managers and Senators, will operate at peak collective strength, using their corrupted and highly partisan process for maximum political benefit. All hands on the coup deck.

Yet all the while they chant the words “Trump is cheating in the next election.” You cannot even trust the results of the 2020 election with Trump in it. Wow, now they’re already undermining the next election 9 months ahead of it. Only to save quid-pro-quo Joe.

Our elections are very frail if just the inclusion of Donald Trump can destroy them.

After all they don’t care about the amount of damage they do to the country. not at all. The only thing that matters is their political objectives. Come hell or high water….and it will.

Last Word Against Impeachment

The speech not given. A parting shot.

Madam Speaker, I rise at this time to voice my opposition to this impeachment sham.

Irony is all around this sham. It is a dark irony.

I find great irony in the fact that the same body with the power to declare war was also given the power to impeach a sitting president, among its other solemn duties.

What if they use all those other powers designated to Congress the same way they are using this power to impeach? Rush to impeach. Fundraisers, storm the gates of the capitol. Impeachment rallies. “Impeach the MF-er!” What if the same hyper-partisanship was used in a rabid rush to war? Even for Democrats, this a new low.

Future voters, preserve our democracy, voting for children and posterity are their talking points. Nothing is further from the truth.

Do they tell their children in future generations that this was the day they stood up to overturn the election of the people? This was the day they had to act to subvert the will of the people. “We had to act.” This was the day the results of an election no longer mattered.

This was the opening salvo in the war on democracy.

You hear the same old tired Democrat platitudes “what is he hiding?”…”what is he afraid of?” Now it is time to ask them the same questions.

What are they afraid of…. what are they hiding? They are trying to hide this charade of a coup they’ve orchestrated and been engaged in since even before this president took his oath of office and assumed the office.

What they are afraid of is the will of the people. They keep on polling with the same results. Now they’ve just decided to go to war with democracy.

They are afraid the same president will be reelected again in 2020. This is only a partisan political hit job, like all the rest of their long drawn out plot, to either unseat the president or prevent him from getting reelected. So they’ve gone to war against democracy, again.

I find it ironic too that the organization founded in the aftermath of President Clinton’s impeachment screaming to “Move On” is the same group now organizing rallies lobbying the left to impeach this president. Isn’t that rich?

So Move On runs to the street organizing rallies with chants of “no one is above the law. The president is not above the law.” But what law; what law are they talking about?

Protecting democracy? They strategized this moment since the last presidential election to subvert democracy. Less than one year before the next election, they must take it out of the hands of the people to let them know Congress not the people will pick the president.

“We must act,” they say. They must act to prevent the president from using his power and getting reelected in 2020. They’ve moved up the date of the election to now.

And they trying to shroud this act of democratic defiance in an excuse that they are doing this for the people, to “protect democracy.” That they are doing it for national security? The only threat to our national security is this attempt to subvert the will of the people.

We all watched for years in the UK as countless lawmakers tried to tell people their votes didn’t matter. They do the same thing here.

But ask yourself, what are Democrats afraid of? What are they trying to hide? The answer is simple, they are afraid of we the people, us. They are hiding their entire anti-democratic agenda against the American people. They are hiding their coup and its fruition.

In fact, everything they have done is a part of the cover up for what Obama and our government did to interfere in the last election. Sure, they failed to prevent Trump from winning but they aren’t done. That cover up for what they did continues.

It is not about what did they know and when did they know it? They have known it all along. They were complicit in the biggest attack on our democracy in history, a bloodless coup. When? They started it from before he was even elected. They were so deep in it by election that even if they wanted to, they could not have stopped. It is a war against democracy. They planted the seeds, fertilized it, then weeded out anything that stood in their way of reaping the rewards of overthrowing the president. (by any means)

Hyper-politics and policy disagreements should not be the cause for impeachment.

But like its power to declare war, once used you cannot put that Genie back in the bottle. You can shout “we didn’t come here to impeach” from the roof of the Capitol. It doesn’t matter. You invoked it while feigning some Churchillian passion as you attempt to overturn an election. This is not what democracy looks like!

Democrats worry about foreign influence in elections. Say hello to your friend, Ukraine.

And so the Forgotten Man limps on still… in an all too real metaphor.

 

I yield back….

Defining Democracy Down

The left is on the fast track doing whatever they can to define democracy down. It’s interesting how it doesn’t matter that Trump is a duly elected president. But he has never been not under investigation. (sorry for the double negative)

Democrats really care nothing about the democracy of elections. All they care about is their political agenda, even when it means undermining democracy with a coup, or daily muddying up the definition of democracy.

They don’t care about the people’s will or our agenda, voiced and confirmed at the ballot box. The only thing that matters to Democrats is interrupting and overturning the last one.

The people can take a back seat to their demands. Never mind the USMCA trade deal. To hell with fixing real problems or sorely needed oversight. Out of control bureaucracy, intelligence, and abuse of power mean nothing to Democrats.

Sunday, Speaker Pelosi was virtually trying to chase Trump out of the White House, saying that “at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue,” She said President Trump was an “imposter.”

Remember that next time she lectures on the finer points of democracy, when she is assuring us of her Constitutional duty. She said:

“This week, we will hear from additional witnesses who will courageously expose the truth and defend our democracy.”

Defend democracy? Sadly, they nor anyone else can defend democracy from Pelosi. Who could? Her assault is relentless. Cancel our democracy. It’s the politics, stupid.

Iowa Loop Cycle

Is anyone else sick of hearing about Iowa? I remember a time when Iowa was just considered quirky politics. They have that caucus process and all. Then all these states were vying for position by moving up their primaries to compete.

But Iowa remains just as politically turbulent as ever. It seems more like fool’s gold. The fact that people are still chasing it is the real phenomena.

How many fish fries? How many fairs? How many dinners and fundraisers? And do we really care about Iowa anymore?

Seems to me they ruined any credibility they had when they revealed that over 40 percent of Iowans were socialists. By now maybe it is over 5o%, who knows? But who cares anymore?

The media keeps playing this game as if even they care. (but then they care about phone calls to Ukraine too) I would much rather hear about Anti-fa protests in Washington.

What’s Iowa going to change this time? That’s my view and I’m sticking to it — Iowa can stick to theirs. Or just stick it.

(*no offense meant to friends and acquaintances in Iowa)

Predictions and Contradictions

Lets talk about predictions. Based on pure speculation, I would predict that Trump wins by a landslide. Now a new analysis by Moody’s is saying pretty much that.

There is also a polling group studying swing voters. They just finished surveying the rust belt. And those swing voters, who went for Trump in 2016 appear undeterred. They are going by 2/3rds to Trump. That is despite what the media is saying.

Or maybe it is in spite of what media is saying, since many of them are not paying attention to the impeachment talk. They are fixated on what matters to them and what caused them to vote for Trump in the first place. In other words, the people didn’t change just because the left and media still don’t like him — and don’t give him a chance.

Now that Democrats and media are going to impeachment full throttle, many voters are mad because it is all they are doing. Voters want attention on their issues but Congress is completely on an impeachment agenda loop cycle. And that’s all they are working on.

So it is not just conservatives and Republican supporters but swing voters who are angry. They are seeing the glaring contradictions in what is going on. Voters are not letting their attention get hijacked from the real issues. It seems like that is what the left wants.

Democrats want to sidetrack our attention and then run their socialist schemes right up the middle. (they are now unified by Socialism — which is the only thing that unifies them other than Trump hatred.) All they have to do is get us a little preoccupied by their shit show. So far people aren’t buying it and it doesn’t seem momentum is in their favor.

Cyclone Hillary slams CBS news cycle

Well, son of a bitch, Hillary Clinton is at it again. Right on cue. Calling Trump a “corrupt tornado,” now that’s rich. (even for Hillary) But everything is about her.

From CNN in Washington

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley that was released on Thursday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee gave her thoughts on the race between her and Trump as well as the 2020 election.

“Well, I hope not, and I don’t think so — because the objective is to field whoever is the strongest candidate to defeat Donald Trump,” Clinton said when asked if she thought it would be harder for a woman to be elected President. “Because Donald Trump right now poses a direct threat, a clear and present danger to the institutions of our government, to the rule of law, to our standing in the world.”

“I believe that, look there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again. And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game,” Clinton said.

When asked if she gets upset that Trump continues to say she should be “locked up,” a notion that is often chanted at his rallies, Clinton said, “No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate President.

“You know, Jane, it was like applying for a job and getting 66 million letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado,” Clinton said. “And so I know that he knows, that this wasn’t on the level. I don’t know that we’ll ever know what happened.

 

“My election” …. excuse me, Hillary?

Now it was an illegitimate election. Hillary did not succeed in destroying our electoral system, so it was illegitimate. Fun fact!

For someone who claimed to write the authoritative source on “what happened” in 2016, now says we will never know. Yet she continues to try to tell us. What a confused and confounded woman. Will she do and say anything to get some airtime?
