Feel The Power of the Deplorable Force

Okay folks, in a spirit of optimism, I have seen some things that even amazed me..

Mitch McConnell came out spitting fire and got into the game. It looks like he enjoyed it too.

Rand Paul decided to move from iconoclast critic to playing a solid third base.

If you watched the rallies, you saw GOP house candidates come out and bask in the crowds, learning to work them and feel the power of the deplorable force.

The various never rights are melting away, like the little town blues they are.

For the first time since Newt and the taking of the House in 1994, the GOP is playing like a team that wants to win and will take no prisoners.

I would like to think they thought of this scene:

But I expect it was more like one of my personal favorite scenes….

And the absolute best part is POTUS had the following hung in the White House, in view of the 60 minutes crew that was there for the interview.

Fred Cole the Defeatist

I don’t know this person very well but what I have seen, he is no friend of conservatives. He is not someone that wants things to go best for certain branches of the coalition. He open scoffs at people and gets away with it. (Hollywood values, right?) He works for dissension and dissension he gets. He has put out so many trollish posts that only someone with extreme myopia and reading comprehension issues would not be able to see it. (That must be why they shut down those who do.)

I am writing this thinking of the danger of those who thought of following Fred Cole’s advice. He would have had Hillary president with a 6-3 balance on the Supreme Court. Just think of that, Mr Libertarian getting all that liberalism because he couldn’t see what a lot of others saw. I am not saying he is blind. It is the walls that move to constantly hit him.

I remember he wrote a post asking the Clueless, “What are you going to do when Trump loses?” Well, he didn’t lose. And the Fred Cole still writes as if he should be listened to.

Ratburger is a great place. A place where a public person like Fred Cole can be dealt with without the thread being shut down. Free expression is not had at $5 a month. It is priceless.

Kanye as History

Try this link for video

Kanye and POTUS

This was a massive political risk, but Trump measures people and takes risks.

Kanye is a musician. You have to follow his talk as if he is painting tone poems of ideas and concepts.

Let it flow over you and it works. He connects on jobs and prosperity as the key to a an America for everybody. He refuses to jump at the ‘racist’ label.

This is as much history as ‘tear down this wall’.

TOTD 2018-10-11: Make Her Stop

Trigger warning: This video is extremely non-PC. Meltdowns may occur.

In this climate writing a book called “The Diversity Delusion” has got to be gutsy but to be able to defend the book has got to going to 11. I haven’t watch the full video but the beginning has college students “dying”.

My response to people not liking the video is, “Women must not only be heard but believed.”*

*Sen Horrendous (I may have the spelling wrong but close enough.)

An Open Cry For Help

An Open Plea for Help to Normal Black, Hispanic and Asian Americans.

I know you can blame us Normal White Americans for the insane nonsense the crazy left is doing to our country. We indulged them, we did not stop them before they gained power (some of you may be at fault there too), we gave in too often.

Just like the Brits asked for help when the Nazis were threatening civilization, it is time we asked for your help.

It’s your country too, so lend a damn hand folks and help us beat these idiots back into their holes.

Remember- What have you got to lose?

A Cockeyed Optimist

In addition to my life long avocation of curmudgeonwry, I have also taken a few correspondence courses in contrarianism and practical optimism.

As I sit back and sagely exhale from the pipe I no longer smoke, take a drag on the Camel straight I no longer indulge and savor the single malt Glenlivet I no longer consume, there is much to muse over after such a week as the one we have endured.

Watching the Democrats and Deep Staters onslaught was like observing a re-enactment of the movie Animal House directed by ruler wielding puritan librarians and with a cast of short school bus riding special needs adults regressed down the evolution chain well past the slime worm.

Such displays tend to detract from the victory. I feel a taste of ashes in what should have been a sweet moment when we reclaimed the Supreme Court to no longer find emanations of the penumbras for new entitled rights which overturn thousands of years of social convention.

I see POTUS literally running on afterburners to secure a working government in the midterms. I see a GOP waking to the fight, flexing long dormant muscles to take on the shills for the DNC called the media.

So now, let us shift to why we fight.

Let me paint a possible future:

A US and North American economy rebuilt, retooled and driving the world forward. Skills in demand driving positive life choices for young folk who chose work over a degree in basketweaving.

An America First immigration policy well enforced in place.

A China caught in it’s economic contradictions negotiating a coexistence with the US , and accepting a senior but not hegemonic role in the world.

An Iran regime change wrought by the Iranians, who seek a good life instead if the Big Imam.

A second term triumph for Trump in a guerilla government induced shift of k-14 public education to private sector alternatives driven by skills demanded by a hot economy. A whole redefinition of school using online, social media, VR and old fashioned apprenticeships takes place. The stifling state bureaucracies are dismantled by sheer disuse.

A long term majority of working class and middle class non-coastals with aspiring working class urbans driving politics for a steady three decades.

A shift to economic exploitation of the inner solar system beginning by the end of the second term.

My optimist tells me this can happen. It has shifted from dream to possible.

Many things can derail these things, but under other regimes and leadership, the odds were nearly zero any of it could happen. We were headed to a dark place. Now we have a chance at much better.

Prosperity can destroy demographic inevitability.

TOTD 2018-10-04: A Hill to Fight On

My friend has always been a snarky libertarianish conservative, very cynical about political causes.  However, when he talks about Kavanaugh, he is furious.  He voted already,and has been much more active in political discussions – even trying to get a job with a campaign.

The formerly squishy, comity-at-all-costs Senator Graham has been a font of righteous indignation.  In addition to his unloading both barrels on the Dem on the committee and calling out their blatant partisan exploitation, he has been getting really snarky off-the-cuff.  In response to a protestor whining about the need to give Kavanaugh  a polygraph, he dropped a Monty Python reference: “Why don’t we dunk him in water and see if he floats?”

On Ricochet, people who are normally moderate in tone are outraged.   Susan Quinn on the same page as Hypatia?  American Greatness and National Review on the same side?  Kurt Schlicter’s Bitey and Jonah’s dingo Zoe hunting democratic squirrels together?   I  have not seen this degree of conservative unity in ages.

Mitch McConnell is a now a snapping turtle.  He’s resolved to make this happen.  I think he takes this personally – judges are his thing, and he warned Harry Reid about what might happen if the filibuster got nuked.  He clearly gets the stakes.

Fundamentally, this is the hill to fight on.  (Not die on, I plan to follow General Patton’s advice)  Kavanaugh is a man of upstanding character and iron will.  The democrats are utterly despicable and lying like rugs.  (Perhaps Spartacus will get the Roman treatment?)  The allegations are completely discredited.

It’s time to put Never Trump to bed.   Their and our hashtag shall be #NeverSurrender

What is it all about?

There has been a lot of talk about Justice Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh. Why are they hated? Why the anger? They are no worse than many other people. Why are people so afraid of them? There seems to be only one main reason. That reason is people want to have the right to end pregnancies.

Let us take a step back. All the public outcry is about a strong person taking advantage of a weak person. How could a person like that sit on the highest court of the land? The logic is not bad. A judge of all people should be for justice which by definition defends the weak. Who in the world is weaker than a small child? Easy, a new born baby. Is anything weaker than a newborn baby? Yes, a fetus in a mother’s womb. All the hue and cry is for the right to extinguish the weak for the rights of the strong. Whatever you think about abortion, one has to agree that is some serious abuse that is not in the best interest of the unborn. One would be hard pressed to see how the fetus is treated fairly or an equal. One might even say “the mouth is covered” so it won’t scream.

I have written before that in my life that whenever there is something I can’t figure out. When it just makes no sense to me. How could this happen? The answer has been projection. That person is dealing with the thing they are complaining about. So the whole big uproar that we are seeing is not about protecting women from abuse but protecting the right of women and men to abuse. Doesn’t this make sense?

Whenever I write about abortion, I know it is something that has affected many people. What has happened cannot be undone. The hope is not to dwell on the past but to try to make the future better. People learn and grow.

UPDATE: I changed “women to abuse” to “women and men to abuse”. Men are in this process too.

The Tides Turn

I sense we have achieved the point of over-reach by our enemies.

Claimants are now backtracking from sworn statements
Charges have moved to “throwing ice”
Mitch McConnell has declared there will be a vote
Jeff Flake seems to be realizing he just really really is left holding the ACME anvil while standing on thin air…

The rally strategy and constant counter attack on the media is working.

Pollsters have begun their shift to more accuracy as election day gets closer and can no longer get away with push polling.

POTUS is wearing a hard hat before electrical contractors talking jobs and paychecks versus the Democrats babbling about stuff the voters really could care less about.

The Kavanaugh show is redundant and boring, no one is amused except the lunatic faithful liberals.

Ye!

Kanye West is causing trouble for Lefty again. It all started when he said something nice about Candace Owens in the spring. Next thing you know, he was seen sporting a MAGA cap and saying good things about the president.

Apparently, he went off on a rant on last night’s Saturday Night Live, after the end of the broadcast, that was captured on video:

They bullied me backstage. They said “don’t go out there with that [MAGA] hat on.” They bullied me backstage. They bullied me!

Ninety percent of news is liberal. LA, New York, writers, rappers, musicians. So it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so one-sided.

Cracks are showing in the leftist wall.

The War Against Reality

The Left has been waging a war against reality for decades via postmodernism generally and constructivist epistemology in particular. Everyone knows the drill by now: sex is a social construct, race is a social construct, the blank slate.

It’s mostly been a rear-guard action so far but has lately moved out into the open.  Since the Left sees that science is not on their side, it must be suppressed:

The opinion that science should be silenced, repressed, or ignored for political or perceived moral reasons exists at the highest levels in sociology.

As Naval notes,

I would have phrased it as “The social sciences are at war with the natural sciences” but that’s just a quibble. Further evidence along these lines is the suspension of hbdchick on Twitter for no apparent reason, possibly other than the fact that she’s counter the blank slate narrative. Fortunately, there are plenty of good people to support her, including the estimable Charles Murray:

This is not the time to go wobbly. To hbdchick,

Time to Choose- Fight or Complain

Accept the fact we are a country of two warring factions. The conflict is ugly and the other side fights to win.

I do believe the latest mess with the Kavanaugh hearings has finally lifted the veil from the eyes of the remaining sleepers about the war.

Just like the Wellstone funeral, the assassination of a decent man on television has finally lit the match.

POTUS needs a better Senate , the weak hand is the only reason we observe this angst. The remains of the traitors to America like Collins, Murkowski and Flake need to have their influence removed.

I do not despair in the midst of battle, that is not the time. The next election is the battle and this nightmare can be used to help us win.

Get out the vote. Talk to friends, neighbors and all, open your checkbooks and get involved.

Brent Kavanaugh deserves a rise of righteous anger that makes the change in the Senate and holds the House.

If McConnell cannot get the votes, we should wait until after the election and make him the next nominee. Dare the evil SOBs to run the game again.

There is a time to fight and a time to complain. I believe it is time to fight.

America is not over but it will be if we give up.

Mr Kavanaugh Goes To Washington

I sit here and feel stunned after what I saw today.

My Dad was not particularly religious and he almost never talked about his wartime life. He did once, when I was ten and he was recovering from a stroke, mention the time he asked God for help. His ship was sunk, he had fallen into burning fuel oil in the water and was trying to stay afloat halfway between Japan and Okinawa. He said he kept struggling and asked God for help, and was lifted from the water by a rescue boat crewman. The man who pulled him out was a friend from his hometown. He saw a friendly face at a spot in the ocean halfway around the globe in the middle of a battle. He left the idea that the happenstance was an answer to his cry for help unsaid.

Sometime good things happen despite the worst the world can throw at you.

Today I saw a good man rise up and stand down the forces of evil. Brent Kavanaugh gave an opening statement that was a spectacle I had never seen in my long and cynical observation of politics.

He stood up to the Media, the Snakes of The US Senate and said you will not break me, you will not make me run away, you will have to fight me to the end. His anger was visible, his horror at what had been wrought on his family was made manifest.

It was real, authentic and it convinced. It sold to men, to women, it sold across race and class.

He was the Genuine Article, the Real McCoy, the Honest Man.

I leave you with a clip from one of my favorite films, “Leap of Faith”, where a con man explains truth.

Are libertarians Dupes? or Why do libertarians ignore the Binary Outcome?

Over at American Greatness, Edward Ring has an article titled Libertarians Are Marxist Dupes. In it, he shows some really scary facts:

In the 2016 election, the Libertarian Party candidate for President, Gary Johnson, attracted just over 4.5 million votes. The Leftist equivalent, Green candidate Jill Stein, received only 1.5 million votes demonstrating the superior understanding the Left has of political mechanics. Despite being a deeply flawed candidate, this Libertarian moved the national popular vote from a toss-up to a clear Clinton edge. In the Electoral College, Johnson’s influence was even greater.

At the state level in 2016, Gary Johnson very nearly handed crucial states to Clinton. In Pennsylvania, where Trump’s margin was a 1.3 percentage points, Johnson got 2.4 percent. In Wisconsin, where Trump won by 0.6 percentage points, Johnson got 3.7 percent. In Michigan, where Trump won by a razor thin 0.3 percentage points, Johnson got 3.6 percent.

So we see that Johnson, the Libertarian candidate had higher percentages than Trump’s win in these states. Attracting a few more votes could have turned things over the Clinton. Indeed, his margin in some states Trump lost was the factor.

Not only did Gary Johnson very nearly leave the “Blue Wall” intact for Democrats, he also took states out of play that might have been toss-ups. In Colorado, for example, Trump lost by 3.6 percentage points, but Gary Johnson got 4.7 percent. In Nevada, Trump lost by 2.7 percentage points and Johnson got 3.1 percent.

What about “purple states”? Florida went for Republican Trump in 2016 by a margin of 1.4 points, but Johnson got 2.2 percent. By 2020, assuming the biased media can continue to brainwash hundreds of thousands of recent Puerto Rican refugees into thinking Trump deliberately neglected their hurricane relief, Trump will need that 2.2 percent.

I am left aghast. Never Trumpers told me, in no uncertain terms that their votes did not matter, so they were going to vote for whomever they wanted. The Binary Outcome was denied. Still, we see here, by going after right of center voters, Libertarians may well have pushed the election over to Clinton. While I understand that libertarians don’t seem to see much, if any, difference between the Republicans and Democrats, any rational observer would be forced to conclude that the Republicans are more on the side of personal liberty and smaller government than the Democrats. Oh sure, not as much as libertarians want, but they are closer to the mark than the Democrats.

Now, in 2018, Ring points out:

The stakes in 2018 could hardly be higher, but Libertarian Party candidates don’t seem to care. In states where the races for U.S. Senate are too close to call, and in similar cliffhanger congressional races across the nation, Libertarian candidates are runningNone of them have the slightest chance of winning, but dozens of them are capable enough to attract two-percent or more. If more than a few of them do, Republicans will lose control of Congress.

Emphasis added.

What on Earth are libertarians thinking? What is helped by running races that they lose, know that they will lose, that may give the edge to the Democrats. Do libertarians actually believe that is no worse for the nation? Really?

First—and sorry to have to state the obvious—America is not a parliamentary system. Even if Libertarian Party candidates attracted five percent of the vote, that would not translate into 22 seats in the House of Representatives. These votes for Libertarian candidates will do only one thing: help Democrats win.

We need to quit indulging the preposterous talking point that Libertarian Party candidates siphon as many votes from away from Democrat candidates as they do from Republican candidates. No, they don’t. Libertarians, for all their incoherence, agree on one thing: smaller government. And Democrats, for all their incoherence, also agree on one thing: much bigger government. Get real.

Whatever may be the flaws of the Republican candidates and elected officials out there (and there are many), Libertarians need to grow up, and recognize a painful fact. The lesser of two evils is the lesser of two evils. The real world isn’t perfect. You take what you can get, because if you walk away, you’ll get something worse.

Libertarians, as a party, they have never been able to make the sale with the American people. Those voters they attract would have had a home with Republicans. There will be Democrats or Republicans in control. That is the brutal fact, and pitching a fit about it won’t change it. I am not saying that the Republicans have a right to anyone’s vote. I am saying that Libertarians seeking votes from the pool of voters on the right helps to elect Democrats. The math bears it out.
