Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

QUIET! Don’t tell ’em!

Never interfere with your enemy when he’s making a mistake.

Yes, Rasmussen Reports offers polling which is often of an optimistic character for those of us who lean more to the conservative side of the political fence, and because of this fact, Rasmussen’s work product is sometimes ignored by the legacy media when it discusses the current political reality.

But recently Rasmussen released a poll result which shouldn’t be ignored. Namely…

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided.

You’ll see evidence to the contrary of Rasmussen’s findings, of course. There are those polls saying that millennials are as interested in communism as in capitalism, and there is the more anecdotal evidence within the Democrat Party that Bernie Sanders-style socialism is ascendant. The Democrat primary victory by avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over New York congressman Joe Crowley is being lauded as an example of the country’s lurch leftward; the party’s chairman Tom Perez even called Ocasio-Cortez its “future” last week.

But however skewed Rasmussen’s poll sample might be, that 74 percent number indicates the Democrats are in serious trouble if they actually believe a far-left push is the key to winning those mid-term elections. It isn’t. It is a complete invitation to disaster. The Rasmussen poll isn’t the only one recently offering an indication the Democrats are on the absolute wrong track this year. In another, this one from Reuters/Ipsos, the Dems are cratering among the millennials they’re trying to build their party around — dropping from 55 percent support over Republicans two years ago to 46 percent now. And among white millennials the numbers are catastrophic. Two years ago with white voters between 18 and 34, Democrats held a 47-33 edge over Republicans; now it’s 39-39. And with white male millennials it’s an almost unimaginable swing; what was a 48-36 Democrat advantage is now a 46-37 GOP edge.

Those polls indicate the fundamentals of this fall’s midterms spell disaster for the Democrats regardless of what some of those generic ballot polls might say. They’re one reason to look out for a red wave, rather than a blue one.

And we think they’re frothing-mad insane now. More hilarious still, though, will be the reaction from the butthurt phonies of the Loser GOPe:

“Should I stay or should I go now?” That question, posed by the eminent political philosophers known as the Clash, is one that confronts any Republican with a glimmer of conscience. You used to belong to a conservative party with a white-nationalist fringe. Now it’s a white-nationalist party with a conservative fringe. If you’re part of that fringe, what should you do?

Veteran strategist Steve Schmidt, who ran John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, is the latest Republican to say “no more.” Recently he issued an anguished Twitter post: “29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of the Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life,” he wrote. “Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump.”

Schmidt follows in the illustrious footsteps of Post columnist George F. Will, former senator Gordon Humphrey, former representative (and Post columnist) Joe Scarborough, Reagan and Bush (both) aide Peter Wehner, and other Republicans who have left the party. I’m with them. After a lifetime as a Republican, I re-registered as an independent on the day after Donald Trump’s election.

Personally, I’ve thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I don’t want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers. But I respect principled conservatives who are willing to stay and fight to reclaim a once-great party that freed the slaves and helped to win the Cold War. What I can’t respect are head-in-the-sand conservatives who continue to support the GOP by pretending that nothing has changed.

That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.

Lying hyperbole about “Trump’s barbarous policy” of complying with a law in place since 1997; accusations of “warmongering” with no basis in fact or reality; above all, comparisons to Nazi Germany because Trump and his supporters would like to see the borders protected, the immigration laws enforced, and illegal aliens deported—whiny cunts like Boot are sounding more like their shitlib pals every day, ain’t they?

    We’re picking up millennial voters in droves, and all it’s costing us is the Marquis of Queensbury Rules-following coaches of the real-life Washington Generals, the exact real-life inspiration for the hackish white-men-who-can’t-jump whose record vs. the Harlem Globetrotters is O-for…ever?

    I’d like to order one metric f**kton of that please: TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    Those @$$clowns calling for “punishing” the party for the sins of – let’s be clear about this – the overwhelming majority of the voters who comprise that party, and who have been spat upon, ignored, and derided by these same hacks for DECADES, unstintingly – are, and always have been, fifth-columnist Democrats in sheep’s clothing, and should be sent back across Traitor’s Bridge with all due pomp, ceremony, and public castigation, and heartily awarded the Benedict Arnold Trophies which they so richly deserve. They go from being big fake fish in a small pond, to being the turncoat lackwits in an ocean of communist traitors, and will gain the ignominy and derision from both sides they so richly deserve, and in full, glorious measure.

    They’re upset that we Deplorables are calling the shots?

    “These could be the greatest years of our lives, but these pussies want to let it be the worst.
    Well just kiss my ass from now on!
    Wm. Kristol is dead to me.
    George Will is dead to me.
    Wormer? He’s a dead man!
    Marmalard? Dead!
    Neidermeyer? Dead!”

  2. Working out the lyrics for a new song, “Annapolis is Coming to Town”:

    We’re making a list
    And checking it twice;
    Gonna find out Who’s treasonous lice.
    Annapolis is coming to town.

    We see you when you’re sleeping.
    We know when you’re awake.
    We know where you go to work.
    So stop lyin’ for goodness sake!

    O! You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    Better not pout
    I’m telling you why
    Annapolis is coming
    Annapolis is coming
    Annapolis is coming to town

  3. Better line perhaps: “The Deplorables is coming in to Town!”

    By the voter returns the entire ‘town’ of Washington, DC needs must be ‘washed’ clean!

  4. Has anyone here ever been contacted to take an unsolicited poll? I never have and I am 62. I wonder where they get the people that participate in polls? Maybe polls should be ridiculed and maybe people should just make things up? “What is your position on gun control?” “Well, I think it is a good idea to be able to control your shots. The whole point of killing someone is to be able to do it successfully. I know when I practice shooting people, I try to focus my phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range directly in a spot that will take them out quickly. Why waste ammo?”
