Even the lefties see the decline of the lefties

From the Atlantic, no less.

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/07/european-left-trouble/593506/.

This article has a Euro bent, but I sense that the message is global.  Our current crop of Dem candidates illustrates the point of this article and shows that they are firmly on the same glide-slope as the Euro-weenies.

My favorite bit:

“With the benefit of hindsight, there may be a simple explanation for the rapid rise and rapid fall of the far left: Its appeal was always more negative than positive.”

Don’t listen to our media and despair, Ratties!  Their desperation is cloying.  We are on the cusp of greatness.  The deep state is on life support, the Dems are idiots, our country is economically robust, and life is good.

Screw Megan Rapinoe and her litany of idiocy.  Love that word when is fits so aptly.

Dan Bongino has become a fave of mine.  His latest on how we should respond when the idiots change the rules in the middle of a bout is perfect.  Check him out if you haven’t watched his daily show.

  1. Nothing new here! I only hope our Fearless Leader can save us from the $23 trillion dollar mess the career politicians have managed to create over the past couple of decades.

    As an aside, the Atlantic used to publish some good stuff. The best political interview I have read was with then Deputy Sec Def Paul Wolfowitz and I was amazed that the author of this article simply asked questions and refrained from inserting his political viewpoints.

    In addition, this journalist managed to encourage one of the best quotes ever:

    “Democracy is not an institution one enforces; it is something to be unshackled.”

  2. President Trump is the Pro-America President.  We are admirers and followers of our Pro-America President because we love America and he loves America.   Under his leadership, the choker leash has been removed from American businesses, creating new jobs for Americans.   All Americans benefit from the Trump economy.   We see a bright future for America, so long as America is allowed to be America.   Along with President Trump, we celebrate all that is good about America.

    Unlike the Left, we see America’s imperfections as minor problems that we can solve together, rather than fatal flaws that require the destruction and transformation of western civilization.

    Make America Great Again.

    Keep America Great.

    Build the Wall.

    Drain the Swamp.

    Lock her up.

    Winning is fun.

  3. Supporters of individual liberty and free markets (which are more or less the same thing) have a huge inherent advantage over the left (or, as I prefer to call them, slavers): our policies work, and theirs do not.  Take the boot off the neck of those seeking entry-level jobs, starting companies, expanding their businesses, and launching new products and, before long, you’ll see record low unemployment numbers and GDP growth rates thought impossible a couple of years before.  This isn’t complicated: it worked when Coolidge did it in the 1920s, when JFK did it in the 1960s, when Reagan and Thatcher did it in the 1980s, and when Trump did it starting in 2016.  “Unexpectedly” things get better for everybody—I wonder why, say the slaver media.

    Slaver policies produce poverty, disempowerment, and despair.  This is why they move, as soon as possible, to destroy opposition, since a free electorate will perceive this and vote them out.  What we’re seeing now is a struggle between the self-evident success of economic freedom (and I wish Trump would stop talking about the stock market, which is fickle and can be manipulated, but rather the unemployment rate, job market participation, rate of new business formation, and other metrics which people can see all around them) and top-down manipulation of information to tilt the electorate toward the slaver agenda.

    The “leftists” in Europe mentioned in the Atlantic article are being voted out because they haven’t delivered.  Let’s hope their allies in the U.S. and U.K. won’t get the chance to repeat their failure.

  4. Yes, I was elated about Greece, and I hope the Left is in decline in our country, but I hafta say, I don’t see it yet.  I mean CTFO, it seems like no matter what asinine thing they say, people  applaud.  Like Castro’s phrase “reproductive justice” ( oxymoron alert!)  an dhis assertion that trans women must have the right to abortions.

    People clapped. 

    Just think  about that….

    Well, as John Derbyshire said in the most recent Radio Derb, it could happen.  Transplant technology and immunosuppressants are probably adequate so that it would be possible to transplant a uterus into the body of a genetic male.  Then, with in-vitro fertilisation and implanting of the embryo, gestation could begin.  And then, the “trans-woman” could exercise “her” right of “reproductive freedom” to abort the developing life so artificially conceived.

    And, you would help to pay for the whole thing under “Medicare for all”.

    Welcome to the crazy years.

  6. JW: Yes, I know! I just heard today that a baby was born to a woman who had undergone a uterine transplant!  She was  born without one. So…could a uterus  be transplanted to a man, with hormonal support?

    if it could though, you’d think it would be an expensive, painful,  time consuming procedure, and that the she-man woulda been contemplating, y’know, giving birth.  I mean it seems like a lotta trouble to go to just to assert your “right” NOT to be pregnant.  If you were born male, you’ve GOT that right… o God I can’t believe  I actually just had to write that.

    You think? Welcome to my world but it isn’t Trump that manipulates the market. You hit a sore spot because I sold my evil FB stock several months ago believing the govt would go after it as it did with Walmart and Microsoft.

    Two out of that three are blue chips right now and I’m highly annoyed that I allowed myself to be intimidated.

    FB traded at over 200 today. At least I had the nerve to hang on to Microsoft.
