I do not like it when certain attributes – like having a vagina, or melanin in one’s skin – are used as a criterium for something that should be based solely on competence, like the decision of who should be the next Supreme Court appointee.
I also notice that even men – who should be less sensitive to social ostracism than women, who are, by their nature, more social and less willing to go for protracted confrontations – tend to “go native” after moving near the champagne-sipping circles of Washington. Roberts is an obvious recent example, let us pray very hard that Gorsuch does not become another. Make no mistake: the social pressure on a woman to align to the social world in which she lives will be massive, and we will need a Margaret Thatcher-like grit to resist to it.
Still, there are good arguments for the, ahem, strategic choice of a woman – provided she would be good enough without any consideration about her sex – for the Supreme Court. In fact, there is even more than can be said for the appointment – with the conditions explained above – of a minority woman. Let me say this once again: of a minority woman who would have been a very decent pick for the Court if she had been a man. Note, in fact, that Trump does not say that the next candidate has to be a woman, because equaliteee. He has said that he will make a choice, and it is likely to (happen to) be a woman.
It would be extremely embarrassing, for the Democrats, to throw mud on a “woman of color”. The fact is, this is something they are not supposed to do, no matter what. If it is fine for Jacob Blake to be a felon, because systemic racism, it must be fine for the minority woman who get picked to be around twenty time more atrocious than embodiments of White Privilege like, to mention one for all, Nancy Pelosi. Whatever issues the candidate would supposedly have – and they would invent some calumnious ones without any compunction – it would be merely the product of the systemic injustice working against all wymyn, particularly wymyn of coooolor, right?
My suspicion is that Trump would, in normal times, relish a protracted fight. But the time is not normal, and there isn’t much of it left. Therefore, he presents the candidate that would make it the most difficult for the Dems to attack him, and creates a situation in which it is easier for Mitch McConnell to put an end to the debate before November, put the thing to a vote and see how Romney, Collins and Murkowski react.
If he wins, he goes into November surfing the wave of success like he is the new edition of the Beach Boys. If he does not win, he can use this to ask the American people to return him and a true Republican Senate majority in November. No one could accuse him of not having done enough. He would be the absolute idol of the Republican masses. The mobilisation would be, I think, huge.
It’s not the situation I would like to be in. But RBG has done all she could to damage the US Institutions – and the Supreme Court in particular – from her very death bed.
Trump needs to play with the hands of card he was given. It seems to me he is about to make a smart play.
I must say that I was surprised in learning that US Federal agencies spend money to give training in “critical race theory”. The Federal administration must be an impenetrable jungle of very numerous “independent republics” with the ability to waste their money without any serious control from outside. But heavens: no audits? No citizens’ organisations looking at the expenses and giving their two pennies on how the money is spent? Weird.
Be it as it may, Trump has put an end to the nonsense. Still, I see problems with the way the decision is formulated.
The very existence of such training exercises actually shows that the problem goes beyond the individual events, and it is the symptom of a subversive infiltration of the Federal administration. This can’t be stopped by just preventing the subversives to sabotage America in that particular way, as it obvious that these individuals will simply change the name of the training courses, or mix the subversive content with a more innocuous one.
No, the solution to this is the systematic purging from the Federal administration of all individuals who have proposed, approved, and funded such exercises.
Once the rot has been found, spreading deodorant over it will not do. You need to eliminate the rot.
I really hope that the Trump administration realises this, and goes to work – perhaps without big proclaims, but effectively anyway – to put an end to this scandal.
The picture above tells you everything you need to know about the pathetic Democratic ticket for the 2020 Presidential election.
They represent a particular America. This is the America of fear, made of those who cower in their basement (as Biden himself does), who are literally afraid of the air they breathe, and who are very happy that an all-powerful, all-regulating Government (local and federal) tells them in minute detail what to do with their lives. This is the America of laziness, too; a Country where too many just don’t want to go back to work, or want to have a convenient home-office life without any regard for the damage this causes not only to their pupils, but to the finances of their pupils’ parents. Who knows, by the way, how many are using furlough money to travel to Portland or Seattle and wreak havoc with their Country.
Please compare with this:
This is President Donald Trump during one of his many press conferences. Positive, unafraid, optimistic, clearly and pointedly not masked, and so darn manly he makes the two masked, scared kitten above simply disappear.
There is an obvious message being sent by both camps. The Democrat message is: “be as afraid as we are”. Trump’s message is: “be as strong, as courageous, and as unashamedly American as I am”.
Somehow, I can’t imagine the West being won wearing those masks. However, I can well picture Trump on a horse, with his trusted Colt pistol and his Winchester lever gun, working as a sheriff in some dangerous parts, and being very good at it.
The American people may not formulate their thinking in this way. However they, I am sure, perceive this all too well. Besides the daily squabbles, they can clearly see fear on one side and rugged manliness on the other.
Lesbians, Homos, losers, liberal nutcases, champagne-sipping journos and assorted soy boys will like the first image. The vast majority of the Country will prefer to identify with the second one.
Fear is a losing proposition for an additional reason: it will be difficult to maintain a climate of Global Scare until November. When the Dems, invariably, try, they will look like scared kitten, and like liars to booth, even more than they do today.
Trump is doing so fine it is almost scary.
At this point, the biggest danger is complacency.
I am always wary of the people who seem to support us from the wrong perspective or, worse, from a perversion.
I have seen many times that great, multi-channel TV show that is the 2016 Election Night, and I distinctly remember a chap dressed – and with his face painted – in an extremely disquieting way in the ballroom of the Hilton, Trump’s Headquarters. The guy attracted the attention of the liberal cameras, which was very obviously why he was there in the first place. I can’t say that I can admire Trump’s work in the matter of sexual perversion – besides eliminating some of the worst excesses from the Military, which isn’t enough – . Trump just does not want to go there, which shows you that Jaranka’s influence (and his own New York upbringing) have left their evil mark on him.
Even more wary I am of people like Milo Yannopoulos; a guy who now lives with his “husband” and who has abundantly shown that, apart from the occasional brilliancy of his words (a brilliancy which is, in part, made more evident by the contrast with his being, actually, a homo), he is a creepy drama queen, in the game purely for his own self-aggrandizement.
Like many of these people, Yiannopoulos seeks a scene; or, rather, a gaudy, Liberace-style pulpit like the one Archbishop Paglia dreams he could have. I don’t mind if anyone praises something smart that he says (I have done it myself, because I think that everything that helps, helps…), but we must pay attention that the support for the single statement does not become support for the man. The man is, simply stated, not one of ours, and for reasons so obvious that if you need to be told them, it is useless to do even that.
The same happens for people like Bill Maher, who seems to get a lot of what is happening. Maher is like a man blinded by decades of leftism, who is now slowing seeing glimpses of where the ideology he has supported leads in the end. But he is not in any way, shape or form understanding the underlying issue: that leftism is a poison that ends up trying to destroy not only everything that is good and holy, but democracy itself. Instead, the man seems to think that the problem is not being a leftist, it is being a cancel culture leftist. This is like complaining that milk goes off when you leave it out of the fridge.
Given time, leftist thinking leads to BLM, talk of equality leads to talk of forced redistribution, the encouragement of victimhood leads to looting, talk of “hate speech” leads to cancel culture and Big TechBrother dictatorship.
We should give some space to people from the wrong side who support Trump, or fight against a common enemy, or oppose cancel culture (Michael Moore is another example I have quoted more than once). But in all that, we should never forget that Milo Yiannopoulos (and all those “homos for Trump” groups, however named) will never, ever be standard bearers for us, because they live under the banner of Satan.
He who has the Cross does not need Yiannopoulos.
This video is from just a few days ago.
From 0:22 to 0:24 you have the disquieting, scary portrait of the 2020 Democrat candidate-to-be.
Looking in the void, with a scared face, his mouth half open in a typical demented posture, you can literally see into what has remained of Creepy Joe’s brain. Watch as his tired neurons try to digest what he has just said and need two seconds of “look at me, I have dementia”-phase before realising he is on the wrong bus. At this point, the man tries to remember the right answer and… fails again.
The light goes out a second time, during the same speech, and this was captured in the video at 0:59 to 1:02. Again, it is embarrassing and scary. Again, the man cannot resume his train of thoughts. It is not that he, at times, tries to remember the name of the whatchamacallit and fails; this is normal at almost 80, and would not be scary if the man can keep his reasoning together and can show he still “has it”. No, this guy completely loses his train of thoughts and stares at the void, evidently wondering on which planets he is living, before the supply of electricity in his tired brain starts again and normal activity is, for the moment, resumed.
If Trump had one, one moment like this, you wouldn’t be able to see anything else on cable TV!
This is really, truly scary. I can’t imagine what horror show a three hour debate with Trump would become. Trump would not have any mercy of the guy, either, and nor should he!
It is abundantly clear that this guy can’t survive I do not say three hours, but likely even forty, thirty, perhaps as little as twenty minutes of debate without the darkness descending on his creepy brain for two, three, four seconds at a time, after which he cannot resume the train of thoughts of before the brain blackout. Another two months, and the guy might well start his answers with “butter, flour, eggs, oil….” before trying to recover with some lame joke.
This guy needs a quiet environment, a TV screen, a hot cup of milk with some honey, a blanket on his legs, and to be left alone, because what is happening to him isn’t beautiful and we do not wish it to anyone. But hey, he wants to run for President. He deserves no pity and no quarter.
At this point I am awaiting the excuse that he will choose to avoid the debates, all of them.
It will not work. That’s a lot of votes for Trump. But it’s better for Dementia Joe to be seen as a coward than to be blown to smithereens by the impact with the Trump Train, with the Country watching.
Rasmussen is a very reliable polling firm. They went very near to the end results in 2016. They have been consistently reliable.
They say Trump is cleaning up.
Granted, this is only July. He can do damage to himself in a variety of ways before November. But there is no mistaking the message here: Biden is going nowhere fast; which is good, because he would not remember where he is trying to go in the first place.
As the article mentions, turns out Blacks and Latinos do not like riots, either. They will never be as vocal as the Twitter Mob, though. They probably are, in many ways, the usual social conservative types, averse to making noise. But they see what is happening, and are taking notes.
This, mind, from the background of an economy that has not restarted anywhere near where it will be in November. When that happens, more minority voters will choose to either support Trump or stay home. If Democratic governor try to cut their voter’s face to spite Trump, the latter will be very fast in exposing the trick, and the voters (minority, or not) will notice this, too.
I also offer another caveat: Rasmussen itself had Trump down 10% in the popular vote to Biden, which means that the polls are not very reliable yet (not even theirs) and the situation remains volatile. Still, when they consistently say that Trump was at 40% approval among Blacks (this was with the economy roaring, before Coronavirus) and is at above 40% among “people of color” now, in the middle of the Coronavirus crisis, it tells you that the gaslighting that is going on from the MSM is absolutely massive.
Third warning: when the Dems pick their BVWSG (Black Vagina With Social Grievances) the percentage of people “of color” that will vote for Trump will go down. But not much, I think. Many Blacks and Latinos are not racist. They will not vote for the White Male Candidate with the BVWSG in his ticket to spite the White Male Candidate without.
It is not in his character, of course, but I think that even if Trump locked himself in his basement, and let Biden free to roam around as he pleases until November, Trump would still win in a landslide. Biden’s best chance is for voters to just forget (as he, himself, does so well !) who the Democrat candidate is, and focus on his persona as little as possible.
Things are going well. Actually, I think they are going very well.
Time works for us (economic recovery).
Biden will have to get out of the basement and embarrass even his Labrador.
There is no sign this BLM madness is going to an end, or that it will be forgotten in November if it does. How the Dems think this is working for them, is beyond me. They have confused the Twitter mob with reality.
November will be fun to watch.
Let me say this first: I am very optimistic concerning this campaign. I refuse to believe that a half-demented, scandal-plagued nincompoop with 50 years of swamp in his CV, and who chooses to scare everybody with a child or a mortgage with his uber-leftist platform, can defeat the President who gave us such great economic recovery (pre-shutdown).
But there is no overlooking the signs that Trump is making mistakes.
Worse, Trump is making unforced errors, and he better stop soon. He is being, I am afraid, arrogant in his approach, and not attentive enough to what his voters really want from him, and how much they care for the issues dear to them much more than they care for the person of the President. Trump may have inspired a strong following, but their faithfulness is not unconditional. This is not a cult. This is an army following his general because (and as long as) they trust him to give them good leadership in the battlefield.
I see at least four big mistakes during the Presidency, three of them continuing to various degrees.
- He surrounded himself with New York Liberals. Say: Ivanka, Jared, or through-and-through swamp creatures like John Kelly. How he picked Anthony Scaramucci is beyond me. It took him a while to understand that he was listening to the wrong people. I am afraid “Jaranka” still has much more influence on him than it’s good for him.
- He slept two years on the Wall. He recovered from that, and I think the damage on that issue will be very limited. But notice this: his substantial inaction on the Wall ended when he lost the majority in the House. Maybe he got the message. Maybe Anne Coulthard calling him a “faggot” is what woke him up (my pint is on this). But notice this: he acted out of his Presidential powers, showing that he had just looked for excuses to do nothing when he insisted on the House following him. Had he not decided to be the Commander in Chief and take action already, he would now be half-toast. Thankfully, I think this will go well in the end.
- He is making DACA amnesty noises again (I have just published a post about this). I think this is a very dangerous place to be, with the upside vastly overshadowed by the downside if his core voters smell betrayal. I know he is likely playing cat-and-mouse with the Dems, but I still think this is a very dangerous game to play. There is no need whatsoever to do this. Trump’s voters want a strong line on illegal immigration, with no ifs and no buts. He needs to have the courage of his convictions, instead of trying to get a bit of support here and a bit of support there; and again, this is a far too dangerous issue to troll the Dems with.
- He has been too near to Fauci on the Coronavirus for too long, and there will be a (hopefully small, considering the alternative) number of shop owners and small entrepreneurs who will never forgive him for this. I think if there is anything that, in November, might prove fatal to him, is this, even more than back pedaling on DACA. Conversely, I think that if he fares a line of strong support for reopening, he will be well on his way to victory.
Let me say this again: things are looking good, and it works for us that the pollsters live on Planet Liberal. But Trump must avoid becoming overconfident, and letting his occasional arrogance prevail over his desire to help the American people.
With all his good traits, Trump has always been a bit of a maverick. You never know, when you wake up in the morning, which wrong fight he is picking (say: Mattis, Sessions…). In this, you can see why, excellent as he is on the whole, he will be Ronald Reagan.
I dedicate a lot of attention to the 2020 US Presidential election, because I think that Trump’s re-election is a key component of the March Towards Sanity that is taking place in part of the West and will, God willing, keep going in the next years. So much is at stake (abortion first, but also First and Second Amendment, judicial sanity and avoiding being run over by a Marxist mob among other things) that there can be, in my estimation, nothing more Catholic than drumming for Trump’s re-election.
However, there is a second aspect of the November election that is almost as important as the President: the US Senate.
Whilst it is certainly better to have Trump as President, even without any of House or Senate majority, than having Biden as President, however the arrangement of House and Senate, it is fairly obvious that the Senate will be a very important battleground in the societal conflicts of the next four years. As I write this, RBG is hospitalised, again, and it is highly improbable that she will survive the next mandate (heck: she might not survive next week…). Add to this the Wide Latina with a serious case of the diabetes, and Justice Breyer about to become 82, and you get the picture. Plus, all the other judicial appointments. Plus, the ability to better push his agenda if he has reasonable control (talking to you, Ms Murkowski, Ms Collins and Ms Romney) at least of the Senate.
Alas, I am not sure that things are really going in the right direction there. The Alabama Republican primary saw the safe winner in November, Jeff Session, soundly defeated by a political unknown with several weak flanks called Tommy Tuberville.
You might say that this is different than the last Alabama Senate election, when Roy Moore very narrowly lost to Doug Jones. Jones also voted against Kavanaugh, thus making it even more difficult to be re-elected. But make no mistake, the Democrat will go for Tuberville’s jugular; and, in this, truth or facts will not have to play any role at all.
I am pretty sure that they will unleash an emotional tempest against him, to sway the estrogen-laden part of the voters, including the estrogen-laden male voters. he will be Christine Blasey Ford-ed like there is no tomorrow. Women will come out stating he touched them inappropriately circa 1982, or circa 1892, they won’t remember exactly but it will be irrelevant. He will be Kaepernick-ed by his former Black players like it’s riot day in Minneapolis. Financial dealings, locker talk, everythign since his birthday will be unearthed. Again, there is no need to find anything substantial. Emotional rubbish or outright lies will be just fine.
Granted: Tuberville will have a great advantage that Roy Moore never had, as Trump will likely fight like a lion for him no matter what “tapes” come out. But will it be enough? Roy Moore seemed a likely win, too.
By contrast, Jeff Sessions, albeit in my estimation a failure as AG, would have been the most loyal, most dependable Senator Trump could have wished in the Senate, and his decades of scrutiny and vast personal integrity would have made any attack virtually impossible. Session was not the ideal candidate of a too emotional, vindictive President, but he would have been a virtually 100% November winner. Tuberville was certainly able to excite the Republican grassroots, but again, Roy Moore is a big cautionary tale here.
If Sessions had won yesterday, I would have relaxed, thinking that the Senate battle begins with the retaking of the Alabama senate seat. As it is now, I think it will be the dirtiest battle since Kavanaugh, and it could have been avoided.
Not a good omen, for sure.
The employment data for June are out. Alas, they are very bad news for the Democrats. At this pace, I think by the end of October things will look fine indeed.
The Dems will certainly not allow this. Economic recovery is pure poison for them. Their plan has obviously been, for months now, to create vast economic misery staying in the way of Trump’s reelection. We know they don’t care about the Country. What will they do?
I think they will try the following:
Expect more space given to a man who wasn’t shy of attention one day in his life. Fauci will tell us that things are going to get very bad, unless Governors castrate the economy again. This time, he will have a much more difficult job. Peter and the Wolf come to mind. There might be local closures for a while, but as a whole, I would say that Republicans states have had enough.
Dems will keep pushing the rioting, burning, and disrupting of the economy. They will say J-J-J-Justice is more important than the economy. Plus, all those people around will spread the virus in its last legs, helping them to push more Fauci-ism down your throat. I think they will avoid Autonomous Zones this time; but the more Molotov cocktails, the better. It will be, as always, Trump’s fault.
Expect more rubbish from the MSMs and the “polling agencies”. Biden in front 14%, 15%, 34%, 71%. Trump at 3% or so probability of victory. “Unnamed” discouraged Republican representatives (very likely, Mitt Romney). Trump possibly resigning before the election (this I have really read a week or so ago! I had to check the date to make sure it was not written just after the tape…. It was not!). There is really no limit to the shamelessness of these people. But it makes them look good with their Facebook friends, you see….
Relentless insults at Trump. Accusations of racism, white Supremacism, robbing of old women, and slaughtering of cute kitten. “Fine people hoax” like there is no tomorrow. If all else fails, screaming like that ugly woman (if such it was) at his inauguration.
Mind, I think they will fail.
But they will try. They don’t mind what kind of damage they inflict on their Country.
Getting rid of Trump is the only thing they care for.
The article is here.
It is very informative, extremely detailed, and very thorough in its analysis.
I suggest all of my readers with time and inclination to read the thing in its entirety, and then forward it to whomever they know, post it on their Facebook page (if any), retweet, etc.
Spread the sanity.
The article is a comprehensive examination of all the major issues revolving around the Chinese Virus. It has contains a lot of information about how the stats are now describing a completely different situation from the one in February-March.
It also has a clear, convincing explanation as to why there will not be a second wave of magnitude even remotely comparable to the first.
Basically, the job is almost done. There is no need to keep shooting ourselves in the foot. Those who advocate it want to hit Trump, and the US economy be damned.
One would think that such robust arguments, fruit of facts instead of scaremongering and “forecasts” of politically motivated activists masked as “experts”, would put an end to the controversy. Alas, we do not live in a world dominated by robust arguments. We live in a world dominated by emotions, desire to “feel good”, and effeminacy galore.
Enjoy the reading.
You just need to visit for one minute the comments section of every conservative site when the article commented mentions the word “lockdown”, to see what people in Trumpland think of it.
The fact is, a second nationwide lockdown would be a catastrophe. I would not cry “we have lost”, or abandon myself to the defeatism so many conservative commenters seem to enjoy (I wish I had a dollar for every “it’s all over” comment I have read since the begin of the Internet), but certainly it would be the biggest gift Trump can make to his adversaries. If you ask me, already the first lockdown was too long, and Trump pushed it a bit too far before starting to work for reopening. Whilst the discipline is in the hands of the States, the input coming from the White House is, as everybody has noticed in March, extremely important.
In my eyes, Trump should do this:
- Constantly criticise the Democrats for crying that the end was near when it was convenient to damage him, and forgetting everything about the Chinese Virus when…. it was convenient to damage him. This should be relentless, day in and day out.
- Never mention, or even consider, or propose, or ponder about, a second nationwide or almost nationwide lockdown.
- Constantly remind the Americans to be brave in battle, and not to desert their post. The Brits went to work under the bombs during the Blitz. Everyone should reflect on this.
- Fire, or sideline, or isolate Dr Fauci, now. Fauci has shown a very alarming propensity to think he can make policy. He needs to go. He needs to be substitute by someone taking great care to only talk about facts and stats, but always referring to the decisions of the elected personnel when asked about policy options.
Trump is in the middle of two storms right now: the BLM Attempted Revolution and the Chinese Virus. The first event will work for him if he navigates it correctly (which he seems to be doing). The second is an unknown at the moment, and I am terrified of whom he might lend his ear to if the second wave proves (or is said to be) a massive one.
God forbid, Dr Fauci and Jaranka;s influence determine the campaign and the President’s actions in the last fourth month of the race.
Once again, an allegedly conservative person refuses to man up and, faced with opposition, thinks that the smart thing to do is resigning.
This is, admittedly, only the mayor of a 2,000 inhabitants Alabama town. But his weakness of character and lack of attributes can be seen everywhere these days, particularly in the deafening silence of those (bar Trump, as always) who have a clear duty to speak.
This Mayor, who is not an important Congressman or Senator, did not have to speak about the Crimson Tide’s (stupid and totally reprehensible) video. But once he did speak, one would expect he would not fold like that. We are at the point where you resign because some people are angry at you. It’s as if being liked by everybody would be a defining feature of a local conservative politician.
Meanwhile, Mayors of much bigger cities like Seattle, Portland, Atlanta, Baltimore, or New York make a pig’s breakfast of their own cities and not only do not resign, but counterreact with more easy demagoguery, like having Black Lives Matter painted, at your expenses, on walls and roads. They don’t care how they look in the eyes of the silent majority. The silent majority will have to suck it up, because these major are on the side of the violent and bullying minority, which is the safest corner right now.
This needs to stop. Timid Facebook posts followed by prompt resignation, or apologies, or both need to leave place to either shutting up first or manning up later. You don’t need to be liked by everybody, but you need to show that you have integrity, courage and the guts to stay by what you have stated. Even as the Mayor of a 2000 small village, you have the duty to be an example.
Can you imagine Trump resigning over a tweet?
Do you realise, now, why he is the President and most others aren’t?
Some good and some bad things happened in Tulsa. I would like to examine them one by one, as I see them.
Foreign people inflating the number of participants is a foreign interference in the US election. The same cretins who have cried foul for two years on Russia and Ukraine seem unable to see this. I wonder if one’s IQ decides one’s political allegiance. I personally did not believe the 1 million figure, thinking that at some point it was just a way to show support for Trump from people who knew they did not have a chance to attend (more on this further on). This is why, in my last post, I limited myself to hundreds of thousands; which is, I think, still a very realistic estimate of the real support Trump mobilised. Still, this is foreign interference that must be investigated and made to stop.
Whilst the foreign interference is worrying and needs to be stamped out (this came largely from China; it is difficult to imagine that party officers did not have their Commie Paws in it one way or the other), the idea that they would cause disruption or cause the rally to fail in itself is 1-A Certified Fake News. Trump Rallies’ attendance is not by invitation, it is on a first-come-first-served basis. Therefore, one can send as many fake invitations as he wants, but he will never cause the right people to stay out of the rally, or be persuaded not to travel to it, because Chinese Commies have already taken all the tickets. Besides, many people travel to get to the party outside of the rally. Therefor,e it would be irrelevant to them if they think all the tickets have gone. The issue is a different one, and it’s the security one.
It is absolutely laughable to say that the rally attendance was a failure, a fiasco, or other words of the sort. There were extensive security concerns and, at times, a curfew in place. There is a big difference between the rallies of the Democrats and those of Trump: the Democrats don’t show up, and those who show up are young militants of more or less challenged intelligence and no children. The Republicans show up with the entire families, with their friend’s families, and make of it a big party and a joyous day out. You need to live in fantasy land to think that the fact that many decided not to show up is something that indicates mediocre, even vanishing support for Trump. Is it wise to travel many hours, with your children, for what could have become a day of battle? Exposing your children to scenes of violent clashes between Antifa and police, tear gas, cries, sirens, horse-mounted policemen (as long as they still exist) with batons? Honestly, I am not really surprised. But I live in a different continent, and the locals will have had a better feeling of what the situation was. They would, for example, read articles like this one, on the day of the rally, and decide not to travel in the end. I don’t blame them.
Huge Interest for Trump
Hey, Democrats: after you have enjoyed your three minutes of Beavis and Butthead laughter, get this: 5,300,000 people watch Trump live on the sum of all video channels (TV and Internet).
Yep. Trump is still a Superstar!
This huge interest in watching Trump also tells something very valuable: that it is very realistic to assume that many who decided not to travel made to the decision to watch Trump on video instead.
I remember reading in the past about video appearance of Joe The Creepy Guy with abysmal participation. I really, really hope Dems are too dim to see this obvious point.
Now, let us reflect on this: when millions of moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats read that leftist fringes obstacle democracy in their Country and the Democrats do not say a word against it – actually laughing at Trump instead – how do you think they will react? I think that every episode of threatened violence and subversion of the Democratic process brings more votes to Trump.
But hey, CNN never says that, so I must be wrong…
So, bad news for you, Democrats: Trump is every bit the Superstar, no matter how hard you put your fingers in your ears and cry “lalalalaaaala”.
Still, bad news for Republicans, too: Trump’s rallies must be joyous family gatherings, not potential war zones.
Now that the threat is evident, there must be a corresponding reaction.
I remember 2016, when Hillary (minus pop stars) could gather no more than twice the journalist present as her “oceanic crowd” and poor, pathetic, meanwhile forgotten Tim Kaine would attract masses by the… dozen, likely trying very hard not to cry. At that time, Trump regularly had 15,000, 20,000, 30,000 people wishing to be at his rallies, the most beautiful thing being the parties of the people outside of the official grounds, with screens catering for them. People who had come knowing they had no chance of getting in, but happy enough to be outside, and party with fellow Patriots.
This is a long distant memory now. Nowadays the crowds for Trump , in a time of pandemic, are counted by the hundreds of thousands. The phenomenon is just staggering to see. It is the witness of a degree of popularity never enjoyed (in life) by JFK, or Lincoln, likely not even by Ronald Reagan. This guy is a superstar.
One day before it’s not enough to get a chance to be in the proper rally grounds, They are now starting to gather on the Thursday for a rally on the Saturday. It’s just as beautiful as that.
Keep telling lies to yourselves with your polls, Democrats. Call them “science” if you start to feel insecure. Reflect pensively, between an amouse bouche and a champagne flute at your mini-party, how Republicans will react to their defeat in November.
We will keep winning.
Restore DC Catholicism has a delightful post about what it means to be a woke cretin in Woke Central, the CHAZ.
It truly is hilarious. Mommy’s darling, who had money, supplies and laptop stolen, gets all passive-aggressive, and lets the woke world know that he/she/it/whatever it identifies with today will now have to go back to mama, then the idea of working for a living never entered his mind. I don’t think this is a girl. I think it’s a boy, plus a lot of soy. But it’s just me.
However this may be, we are in Woke central, and there is no time for such selfish behaviour as whining that your stuff has been stolen. The answer is comedy gold:
This is a masterful, BLM-age retort. I am sure this is not meant to be funny. This is merely the new reality in Woke Central.
Let me count the ways:
- I don’t judge you. I really, really appreciate you. You are such a unique snowflake. And now that I have paid my tribute to your sensitive Woke skin, hold fast…
- You are judgmental. Just because things disappear, you call this theft? Who do you think you are? If we weren’t in the same Woke Central, I would call you racist!
- Theft isn’t theft if we say so. You have no right to your property. If someone who is “disadvantaged” took it, suck it up, boy! You will now see the thief of your laptop use it, and enjoy your food and your money. It’s the way it works here. Be happy for him. Reflect on your privilege instead.
- As you have no right to your property, it’s not for you to call anyone a thief, or yourself a victim of theft. But we will entitle you to call it an “unplanned donation”. Unplanned, mind; not unwanted! You, me, everybody, we are all in agreement that theft is what we are about in this community. See, it works in this way: you have no right to anything whenever anybody else is in greater need of it than you.
- I don’t judge you. You have been a useful idiot for the cause. You did good today. Now, kindly shut up, before I get angry.
It does not need a genius to know that this is what goes on all the time in this wonderful experiment. The desperate race for who is the most woke; the tyranny of communism that you are requested to like and approve; the gentle, “you need to get in line with the party line” rebuke, Communist Party style; the bullying of the strong and the cowardly servitude of the sheep, who aren’t even allowed to whine.
It truly is delicious.
I must say that I disagree with the idea that Trump should intervene, sharp-ish, and put an end to this. I would agree with the policy if those six blocks were inhabited by solidly-thinking, hard-working, conservative people. However, it seems to me that this commune is established in one of the wokest parts of one of the wokest cities “from sea to shining sea”. I frankly cannot see why this new Animal Farm should not be allowed to take its course, a “social experiment” of which the vast majority of its inhabitants must surely approve and, if they don’t, should approve anyway because this is, ultimately, what they have supported for now many years.
Plus, Trump is the ultimate Aikido-fighter, using the energy of his adversaries against them. If he intervened, his own use of force (or energy) would be universally condemned and the cries of “repression” would rise to the sky. In this way, he exposes the inaction at all level of Democrat power (Mayor, Governor, Senate, House) whilst criticising the chaos incessantly; but he still keeps ready to intervene, if the situation becomes so serious that the Governor must be pushed aside, and must let the grown ups do their job.
This can only have a handful of outcomes:
A) Copycats of the CHAZ pop out in other “Woke” Democrat cities like Portland, Berkeley or San Francisco. If the Dem police represses them, get the popcorn. If they don’t, watch millions of moderate Democrat voters discover the virtues of both Trumpism and the Second Amendment.
B) The CHAZ dies a pacific, slow death of exhaustion. Too many mama boys run out of money, not enough soy beans to go around, vegan food difficult to find and not enough people giving the heroes food for nothing, and the like. In this case, they will look like spoiled children with no spine or brains, and the Democrats will look the more stupid for having supported them.
C) The CHAZ ends up being a very violent place, or the lawlessness forces the police to put an end to it with the baton and the.. taser. In this case, Democrats at all levels will have brutally failed, and there will be no way to hide this. Plus, you will see the flocking of sane people to the tactical Trump vote – just until the Dems go back to halfway sanity – as in B).
Before I conclude, a last reflection on the last words of the theft victim.
He writes: “I might be packing up to leave soon”.
Whatever it is that he is packing, I am sure others will be in greater need of it than him. I see more “unplanned donations” coming, nor do I think it is such an injustice.
Live woke, die woke.
Michael Moore is one of those people who seem to have the ability to, confusedly, see reality for what it is behind the thick PC fog he himself puts in front of his eyes. I think this is because he seems to have kept contact with friends of his youth, so he has that connection with the real world that rapidly evaporates whenever he talks to his rich, champagne-sipping, cocaine-snorting, sodomy-practicing liberal friends from the coasts.
Mind, he does not have the *guts* to tell the liberals that they are delusional, and that it looks like they are heading for a trouncing in November. He knows all too well that his “friends” would turn on him like a swarm of piranhas if he started to say what he really thinks! By the way, this is the drama almost every pollster is living now, more so today than in 2016.
In the linked video, Moore is confronted with the customary, delusional “polling average”, as if a bunch of fake news made by terrified pollsters had more credibility than the first one of them. Please, God, make them go on like that until November!
Mr Moore is clearly invited to endorse the view of his interviewer and the “consensus” of the polls, which clearly predicts that Trump’s base support will be devastated exactly in those states that gave him the victory in 2016 and saw him deliver on everything he had promised to them until 2020. Not being as dumb as his interviewer, or as terrified as the pollsters, he clearly refuses.
Notice, though, that he does not say “you are living in cuckoo land, people!” He simply limits himself to stating – amidst various insults for Trump and the Deplorables, as he clearly thinks that of all of them – that, no matter what the Democrats throw at him, Trump will keep his base intact. This is the equivalent of taking the little toy given to him, throwing it to the floor and stomping it with his not inconsiderable weight, without actually doing it.
Liberals scared of liberals.
Meanwhile, more than 200,000 people want to see Trump in Oklahoma, in a time of (supposed) pandemic. This guy is now way past Rock Star Status. He is one of the greatest American Icons, in his own lifetime. Babe Ruth and Joe Di Maggio bundled together. John Wayne on steroids. The second coming of Elvis.
Moore clearly sees it, but he does not want to say it. His Coastal Liberal counterparts prefer not to see it at all, and to lull themselves, like in 2016, with the “data”; this and, possibly, the cocaine, allows them to ignore, just a little bit longer, the reality they see around them.
In 2016, Trump was outspent by Hillary more than 2 to 1. This year, Trump will vastly outspend Biden. He is making a tremendous effort in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Heck, he is spending a lot in Minnesota, and the mess in Minneapolis will certainly help him! He is the incumbent, which is always an advantage. He has delivered tremendously for his voters, which is another, much bigger advantage. He propels himself into Popularity Stratosphere whilst Biden cowers in his basement; an old, confused man whose strongest selling point is that you pity him for his dementia.
You need to be a liberal hack in order not to see where this very clearly seems to lead.
You need to be merely a liberal in order to simply see all this, and not have the courage to say it openly.
At the end of the interview, enjoy Moore offering his choice for Veep: the obligatory BVWRG, Black Vagina With Racial Grievances. His interviewer either does not know the activist woman (I had to search, Michael Moore pulled a nice “holier than thou” trick there…) or seems to think, ever her, that the BVWRG is too much on the left even for her.
Gotta love these liberals trying to out liberal each other.
They seem not to realise the effect they have on everybody else.
The US economic data that came out today were a surprise of historic proportion.
The unemployment was at 14.7% last month, a historic high. It was expected to rise anywhere between 19% and 20%. the finance markets were bracing for a loss of 8m jobs.
It turned out differently.
The unemployment rate did not rise to 20%. It dropped to 13.3%.
The economy did not shed 8 million of jobs. It gained two and a half.
I think one day people will write that this is the day Biden knew (before he forgot again) that he had lost the election.
The Democrats tried to destroy Trump by accusing him of incompetence in dealing with the Coronavirus. He stunned the country with solid leadership and strong optimism. They failed.
The Democrats then tried to destroy him by destroying the economy. He gave them some space (too much, I think; but hey…) in order to avoid giving them the flank. He had sufficient courage to reopen before it was too late. They failed.
Then they tried to destroy him by destroying the entire country. He sent the national Guard to Minnesota, and threatened to do it elsewhere. They failed.
And now, this.
The economy is coming back with a vengeance. The next months will be characterised by a strong optimism as the economy races again. Bar big surprises, it will be firing on all cylinders by November.
Trump had seen it right. He had predicted, many times, that the economy would recover strongly, faster than most people expected. Today is his great vindication.
He went for the jugular, as always, giving a press conference. He destroyed the Democrat narrative whilst thanking them.
He stands tall now, with the economy soaring.
Not one person lacked a ventilator.
Meet the Virus Slayer.
My blood boils when I read the comments of the never happy, the professional Monday morning quarterbacks, the permanently grumpy losers, the people so stupid, or so absorbed in their perennial grievances, that they are unable to understand what great gift God made us with this man.
Support Trump. Support him with your friends, relatives, coworkers. See past the occasional intemperance, or the odd tweet. This Presidency is not about this.
This man is a giant. Forgive him his peccadilloes, and thank God that he, and not Hillary or Joe or Kamala or Beto, are leading the nation.
President (Thank, God!!) Trump’s remarks about the animals of MS-13 have prompted the usual scandal from the bleeding hearts of the left. From the many who ran to accuse Trump of calling all illegals “animals” (usual fake news) to, predictably, Father James “Georgina” Martin getting, ahem, all hot and bothered at Trump’s testosterone and making comparisons with Hitler, there was no scarcity of hypocrite virtue-signalling and fake righteous outrage.
It used to work, you know. There was a time where the Rottweilers (see what I am doing here?) of the left only had to bark, and the emasculated “conservatives” would fall in line very fast, apologising to everyone and his cat for any offence that might have been taken, or imagined, or dreamed of.
Those times have gone.
The White House in the Age Of Trump doubles down on the statement, outs the leftists for the bunch of screeching bitches they are, and proceeds to not only take solid ground, but go on the counterattack on this. I sincerely hope that the hysteric defence of extremely brutal criminals from the left will become one of the themes of the coming electoral campaign. Trump truly is the guy who could do it.
But let us talk about animals more in general.
Calling cruel, evil, or simply very dumb people “animals” is so common that the usage is everywhere. Pope Francis himself referred (seek the link for yourself) to priests who deny baptism to the children of single mothers in that way. It is really, really common.
The Bible does the same, and it is the Word of God. Go to Gateway pundit or any other interactive bible with a search function and you will see the usage recurring in a variety of contexts in both the Old and the New Testament. Our Lord himself, when talking of casting pearls before swine, is obviously referring to humans, and in this sense has the phrase been used ever since.
Even more in general, the comparison does not even have to be offensive. Our Lord is the Lamb of God. Is there any homosexualist priest who finds this offensive?
But let us enter an even wider field, and let us put the matter in its proper context.
An animal, in the strict sense of the word (that is: not a human) cannot sin. A human is capable of great evil. What does this tell us?
Pope Francis is worse than any animal. It is likely that it would have been better for him to be born a physical jackass, than a figurative one.
It has been asked in the comments whether the Papacy will ever recover from the damage Francis inflicted to it. In my eyes, when we have the right Pope the Papacy will recover very, very fast.
People feel the need for a spiritual guide. Not only Catholics, but many Christians around the world yearn for a reassuring figure guiding the, in the end, most reassuringly permanent institution in the world. Imagine a new Pius, or a new Leo, unapologetically doing what a Pope is supposed to do. We would have a Trump-like reaction: the MSM would insult the man every day, and countless millions – possibly billions – of people would emit a big sigh of relief and think to themselves: “finally!”
Also, the Papacy is not simply another political institution. Its foundation in Christ makes it more resilient to the vagaries of time and troubles of the last occupant. Whilst it undoubtedly is a political office, it is first and foremost a religious one. It is like a big statue made of silver, ready to shine again once a good polishing has been applied.
The recovery of the Papacy has never been my concern and, in fact, if it had been I would have never shot at the disgraceful behaviour of Francis the way I did all these years. My concern is, in fact, another: where is the Pius, or the Leo, we need to get out of this? In a world where a wet kitten like Burke is taken as example of orthodoxy and courage, how can the Papacy recover its attractiveness and prestige? A Pope Burke would, as things stand now, merely slow the decline as he is eaten alive by the enemies of Christ because of his sheer lack of testosterone. Benedict 2.0. If we are lucky.
We don't have any use for a Pope Burke. I can't see, in the natural order of things, any hope around me for a Pope Pius or Pope Leo.
I would gladly set for a Pope Donald, one who is tough and always ready for a fight, whatever his private shortcomings.
He would repair a lot of damage, all right.
Trump's decision to appear live at the US March For Life shows once again a handful of very evident facts:
1. This President is way more Catholic than the Pope. As Francis invites us to “not obsess” about abortion, Trump actually does exactly that.
2. Trump engagement in favour of the Unborn is more than a mere slogan, as such a hard pro-life profile is not sure to bring him additional supporters. This is a man of integrity keeping his word, not an Auntie Merkel saying what is convenient on the day.
3. The cowardly US Bishops relentlessly working against the most outspokenly pro-life President since the Gipper show that they do not care about the unborn, and are perfectly at ease with the pro-death agenda of the Democratic Party. This, with the excuse of their socialist-spectacled decrying of “social injustices”.
4. The unborn US babies are, mostly, legal US citizen in fieri. Too much Stars and Stripes for the Democrats and their Bishops, I suppose. They prefer to let these oppressed, innocent US Citizen (in fieri) die, and prefer instead to import illegals from (let us say this again, because repetitive iuvant) shithole Countries, who then proceed to Somalise and Haitise the US as much as they can, perpetuating the power of the Democrats in the process.
5. Thank God for President Trump.
I welcome President Trump's “Shitholes” comment; and if he has not made the comment, I regret that he didn't.
One of the greatest things of this Presidency is the disregard for the increasingly more oppressive rules of political correctness, driving people to what is pure and simple denial of reality. Most sensible (not sensitive!) people would call, say, Haiti a shithole all right, and the more so when they want to make a forceful point. It needs a PC Libtard to see “racism” where the others see a simple reality. Libtards don't care for reality. They will excise from their consciousness and call “racist” every fact that threatens to destroy the stupid bubble in which they live.
This attitude is preventing us from saying things as they are in so many other areas, and when the language loses the sting the bad behaviour or bad situation is encouraged of perpetuated.
Sodomite, not “gay”. Adulterer, not “in an irregular relationship”. Perverted, not “gravely disordered”. Heretical, not “problematic”. And so on and so forth.
The refusal to call things with their own name (yes, shitholes too) is what has given us a society that encourages sodomy, has rampant adultery, think you can choose your “gender” and allow Francis to go on virtually unopposed and certainly not challenged at least by the clergy.
I look forward to more tweets like this one.
Don't want to be called a “shithole” by the President of the United States?
Try not to be one.
I never liked the expression “God Emperor” referred to Donald Trump; I never did it because, whilst having its obvious roots in the Roman Empire, it does sound vaguely blasphemous to these Christian ears.
However, Trump truly is a guy that seems to keep doing what he does so well (not only running a country, but enraging snowflakes whilst having a lot of fun in the process) with great energy even as a President.
It’s funny and ferocious. It’s sound common sense and ferocious mockery. It’s what other Heads of State don’t do, because they are too dumb and conformist for that, and could never pull it off the way Trump does. Trump is an oasis of sanity in a world run by conformist, incompetent nincompoops, the obvious product of the Age of Madness in which Western democracies have descended.
Dumb voters produce dumb leaders. It’s the bane of democracy.
Trump’s religion is Christianity, not global warming. This would be good enough in itself. But what is even funnier is to see this man having a laugh at the stupid priests of the new religion of non-existing “consensus” and even more absurd (an oxymoron is there ever was one) “settled science”, and enjoying “triggering” all those pothead and assorted retards of the vast Losers’ Galaxy.
Trump has remained Trump. He has not transformed himself into another tofuhead spouting platitudes. He keeps attacking, keeps provoking, and keeps having fun as he teaches Libtards how to think or, more likely, enjoys their inability to do so.
We need more of this on our side, too. The Catholic blog world keeps being too nice, too afraid of “offending”, too much concerned with polite discourse and with the gentlest rules of engagements. Our enemies don’t return the favour. Many more of us should forget the white gloves and start trolling these people relentlessly. If a President of the United States can do it, so can a humble blogger.
Thank God for this exceptional man. God willing, 2018 will bring not only more winning, but a lot of fun, too.
Yesterday it was one year from that wonderful, sleepless night I spent in front of my computer screen, enjoying (almost) every moment. What an unforgettable night. What joy to go to work without having closed an eye, but knowing that Armageddon was averted.
Imagine a Hillary Presidency only from the point of view of the Supreme Court: the Scalia substitution alone would have tipped the scale in favour of people with no decency and no God, but Baader Ginsburg would also have soon resigned, and possibly Kennedy, or Roberts, or both. Sotomajor has, it is rumoured, a big diabetes problem, and she might have been persuaded to resign, too. It would have been a complete remaking of the Country for who knows how many decades.
This is the by far most important aspect. But there are others. Trump has killed the Paris Agreement and the TPP, he is remaking Nafta, he is killing the entire environ-mentalist agenda, he is being vocally pro-life. The economy is marching forward and the stock exchange reflects the rosy prospects, indicating an easy win in 2020 unless the man loses his mind and starts to drift towards the “centre”. There is a new assertiveness abroad: Iran, North Korea, Syria: we finally have a POTUS again instead of a limp-wristed idiot completely out of his depth.
The initial movement has now become a true revolution, a revolution that supports Trump but does not depend on him. Alabama has shown in the most brutal way (assuming a Republican victory next month) what is to be done to be elected, and the ripple effect on future Senate races is already stunning. Virginia has shown that half measures will not do, and the RINOs might soon become an endangered species. The Second Amendment is stronger than it has been in a long time. The Country is visibly shifting towards sanity.
I forget a lot.
Certainly, not all has gone according to plan, but then it never does. I would have expected more energy in the matter of illegal immigration, but again this is mainly for the legislative power to start acting on. The Wall *is* coming. Obamacare *is* dying. The tax reform too.
One year later, I raise my eyes heavenward and thank a good and merciful Lord for the Rise Of The Deplorables, allowing not only the US, but the entire West not to be condemned to the Dictatorship of Godlessness.
What great, great gift Donald Trump is.
On this day, I want to renew my despise for, and my insults toward, the Sanctimonious Judases who would have preferred to see Hillary in power to satisfy their petty vindictiveness and their morbid desire to see everything crumble around them as they blame you for it. Despicable idiots. Enemies of everything that is good and holy. Tools of the devil. May God forgive them for having helped Satan in 2016. I will certainly not forget.
One year later, we look to the future with a renewed optimism, and we know that the Army of Christ is on the offensive where it counts most, the USA. We are still suffering on the papal front, where the situation is utterly dire. But it is fair to say that Trump will do for Christian values much more than Francis will ever be able to destroy.
Soldier on, my fellow Deplorables. Keep fighting the good fight, and keep supporting the right side. Never waiver. Pray for the swift departure (one way or the other) of RBG, Sotomajor, Kennedy and Roberts, and their substitution for justices in the mould of Gorsuch. They will readjust the country’s trajectory, and pave the way for a Christian generation after us.
Thank you, Lord, for Donald Trump, and for the Charge Of The Deplorables.
The words below (inconceivable from every Western European head of State or Government) show how far away Western Government have drifted from the Christian feeling and practice that is their very cultural matrix.
They also show the huge difference between the great Donald J Trump and the lesbian bitch who tought herself entitled to his office.
Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 3, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Hurricane Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts. We give thanks for the generosity and goodness of all those who have responded to the needs of their fellow Americans. I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers today for all those harmed by Hurricane Harvey, including people who have lost family members or been injured, those who have lost homes or other property, and our first responders, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and medical professionals leading the response and recovery efforts. Each of us, in our own way, may call upon our God for strength and comfort during this difficult time. I call on all Americans and houses of worship throughout the Nation to join in one voice of prayer, as we seek to uplift one another and assist those suffering from the consequences of this terrible storm.
Thank God for President Trump. I do not agree 100% with what he does or says, but I don’t want to even think where we would be now without this great man.
Whenever some adherent of the “religion of peace” blows up himself in the air or does something just as stupid, UK Muslim leaders are not slow in condemning, in very generic term, “violence”. The mention of “Muslim violence” is not really there. It's a very generic condemnation of bad behaviour “whenever it may come from”.
Neither the BBC nor the mainstream press have a problem with it.
It is, therefore, strange that when a death occurs in the course of incidents which saw violence on both sides, Trump should condemn one side exclusively.
Actually, Trump is far more justified than the above mentioned Muslim leaders, because in the latter's case the violence is undoubtedly all on our side, and in Trump's case this is not the case.
Trump is right also in the “terrorism” quarrel. The death in Charlottesburg is a mixture of heated spirits and road rage. Never in my life have I seen such an episode called “terrorism”, and I have seen a lot of it in several Countries. The fake news machine just does not want to stop.
And please leave poor General Lee alone. A wonderful soldier and patriot that every Nation would be proud to call his own, and an Abolitionist to boot.
One thing you can safely say of these liberals and assorted leftists is that, besides not being born geniuses, they are ignorant of their own history.
It has been announced today that President Trump has put an end to the madness of trannies in the army. Not only, mind, in combat roles, but in any capacity whatsoever.
Every sane person cannot but be pleased at the slow recovery of sanity the USA are attempting under President Trump. Not that the event in itself is anything world shattering. A functioning brain should be enough to prevent the situation that Trump he today corrected in the first place.
What is remarkable is the willingness to go against a madness now accepted as normality by vast swathes of the once Christian West.
Another day, another baby step toward ps normality under President Trump. No thanks to all the BeverTrumpers and the fake conservative Judases who would have accepted Mad Dyke Hillary at the White House.
Keep winning, President Trump. And please do not forget all those, like Jeff Sessions, who are your real strength.
It appears that justices of the US Supreme Court give a kind of solemn reception to their employees every 5 years in office : 5, 10, 15, and so on.
You will be pleased to know that Justice Kennedy, who also follows the custom, has just given such a reception, for year… 29.
It does not take a genius to understand what this means.
God willing, the announcement will be made tomorrow. This would be huge.
Mind, a huge battle will ensue as there will be no shortage of RINO Senators reflecting whether it is not better to profile themselves as “middle of the road”, “uniparty” little weasels and find excuses to stop the appointment of a decent candidate. But it seems to me that they would be underestimating the mood in the Country at large.
This can be huge. Gorsuch was the replacement for the loss of Scalia, but another like Gorsuch instead of Judas Kennedy would tip the scale for very long. And if Baader-Meinhof …. apologies…. Bader Ginsburg decides to retire too – or else the Grim Reaper asks to have a word with her – that would be huge, squared.
I can't contain my excitement. I have been waiting all month. 29 years reception? Really?
Finger crossed. Lots of prayers. Tomorrow could be one of those days that change the course of history.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
For my “never tire of winning” series, a new example of the way this President thinks and works.
Trump has once again demonstrated he absolutely wants to deliver. However, his way of delivery is not a draconian and ultimately unrealistic “everything on day one” method.
On the one hand, he can tackle the issues one at a time, and pick his battles in the proper order. On the other hand, he loves to tease and keep people in suspense; as if to punish his lukewarm supporters and enjoy the shattered hopes of his enemies. There is in this, I think, a mixture of calculated strategy and amused mastery of the game of politics.
We see this happening again with the decision to pull out of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. A clear electoral promise was followed by a mixture of harsh statements and more conciliatory messages. Donald The Cat played with this particular mouse for fairly long, before delivering a mortal blow that will remain the more impressed in the consciousness of allies and enemies alike.
Make no mistake: Trump knew what he wanted to do from day one. He decided to build suspense in order to give more emphasis to his decision. He also enjoyed the faces of those who had hoped to the last, not very intelligently, that he would make a U-Turn on a policy already fully implemented (coal, pipelines) in order to please… some fat, smug, German bitch.
I am glad the decision came now. Trump waited to first have the momentum build, then told the other chief of government what morons they are, then built more suspense, then delivered a mortal blow to the Paris Agreement, but not without saying “if you ever become sane again come to me in confidence and we shall talk”.
Not only he delivered 100% on his promise, but he had a lot of fun along the way. If you understand the way the man works you will have a lot of fun, too.
We keep winning and winning. Boy, am I having fun.
Thank you, Lord, for the best President since Ronald Reagan.
