Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01


Well, it would seem my confidence in a Democrat Socialist skunking tonight was…ummm, misplaced.

Well, it wasn’t the huge Blue Wave we were promised, a change in Congress on a par with the Tea Party’s “shellacking” of President Barack Obama in 2010, or President Bill Clinton’s big midterm losses in 1994. It looks more like a Blue Slosh. Or maybe a Purple Puddle. The Democrats regained some ground, but it wasn’t the overwhelming repudiation of President Donald Trump and the Republicans they were hoping for.

As I write this, it looks as if Democrats will control the House of Representatives by a narrow margin, while the GOP keeps control of the Senate. What does that mean? Gridlock.

Is that good? It just might be.

Sadly, no. What it’s going to mean is more endless Trump-bashing investigations into nothing at all; it means a return to a faltering economy as Trump’s remarkable record of success grinds to a halt under relentless obstruction; it means the brisk pace on the path to restoring America will grind to a stagger. It means lots more of this:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says today’s election results in the House of Representatives are about “restoring checks and balances” to the Constitution.

Congress and the U.S., Pelosi said, have had enough division. The midterm wins, she said, are about what a new Democratic majority means for working class Americans. Pelosi: “It’s about what a new Democratic majority means for working class Americans.”

It means this:

The 78-year-old Democrat from California, who was House Speaker from 2007 until the GOP took control of the chamber in 2011, is poised to resume that powerful position — and she wants it.

“I feel very confident in the support that I have in the House Democratic Caucus, and my focus is on winning this election because so much is at stake,” Pelosi told reporters in July. Just this month, she told The Washington Post: “Nobody is indispensable. But I do think that I am best qualified to take us into the future, protect the Affordable Care Act, to do our infrastructure bill and the rest. Stepping down this path, I know the ropes.”

And Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said a few days ago: “I expect Nancy Pelosi will be Speaker, and I believe that she will be Speaker until she decides to leave.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Maxine Waters, another California Democrat and one who has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment, could soon control her own committee — which would yield her the power to subpoena and control the fate of legislation.

Waters, 80, could become chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, where she currently serves as ranking member. The committee oversees the housing, banking, insurance, and securities industries, and Waters has offered big plans if she can bag the job.

Then there’s Rep. Adam Schiff, a true Trump hater who is beloved by the mainstream media.

Another California Democrat, Schiff could likely rise to chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, where he is now the ranking member.

Schiff, 58, said in an interview with CNN that the committee would “investigate questions involving Russian money laundering and President Donald Trump’s businesses.” Schiff said his committee would work in tandem with Waters’ focus on potential money-laundering schemes involving the Trump campaign and Russia, saying he’ll back Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion.

Then there’s Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who would be poised to take over the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler could work with Schiff to oversee any attempt to impeach Trump.

Does it get even worse? It sure does.

Here’s what’s coming next:

The day of reckoning is finally here after two years of psychological warfare aimed at President Donald Trump and at us – the deplorables – by the mainstream media, the Deep State, the Democrats, and the rest of the Establishment. If the Democrats succeed in wrenching one or both houses of Congress from Republican control, it will put the Trump Administration totally on the defensive for the next two years. The president’s unfinished agenda will likely be stopped in its tracks. The situation will finally be a perfect matchup uniting the MSM, the Deep State, the other nefarious players, and one or maybe both houses of the Congress – key branches of the government that will be under tight Democrat control with unchecked investigative and subpoena powers.

We’re at the end point – the critical mass – of the century-long Long March to Marxism – socialism – and now Communism. The Democrats have been on this road for a long time. Twenty-five years ago, Hillary Clinton was put in charge of turning what was left of our free market health care system into a government-run socialist medicine control grid. To say then that there was communist influence in this strategy – you would have been labeled a crazy.

Today, Marxist influence on one of the two major political parties couldn’t be any clearer. I spent much of the past summer investigating Occupy ICE and its supporters, including the Democratic Socialists of America who have openly penetrated the Democratic Party. They are Marxists who teach Marxism in online courses at their official website! Their most popular DSA member, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, has been identified as “the future of the Democratic Party” by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. The platform of most of the Democrats running for office this year is almost identical to the DSA’s.

Are you OK with this? Most readers of this article aren’t, but polls show a majority of Millennials are fine with it – over 50% support socialism and 7% actually prefer communism.

God Help Us.

Sorry to be so gloomy here, folks. Of course the Democrat-Socialists were going to notch some wins; I never expected otherwise, it’s just not realistic. But I did expect a solid repudiation for them, and tonight was anything but; in addition to reclaiming the House, the commie swine also picked up four governorships, albeit in deep-blue states anyway.

Nonetheless, it’s still mind-blowing to me that any American concerned about the well-being of the nation and its people could look at the incredible progress made by Trump the last two years and even dream of casting a vote for the party that was not only violently opposed to it, but also responsible for the destruction Trump had undone so quickly in the first place.

And yet somehow, here we are. This election was an IQ test all right, as Roger Simon said…and America flunked. Sarah sums the whole dismal thing up:

The dems get two years to hide whatever inky stuff has been going one with the FBI/CIA. After another two years that swamp might be permanent.

Trump is by nature a deal maker. After the first two government shut downs, he’ll meet them halfway. This will wreck our economy and yep his presidency with it. As they did with Bush in 2006, they now have a chance to wreck the economy and have it blamed on the sitting president.

Border security? What border security? Moar Dem voters, citizenship being insignificant.

Seriously, yeah Judges. Not all is lost. But this is bad, very bad. We failed to beat the margin of fraud. Maybe it was inevitable. Maybe Trump won in 16 because they seriously underestimated him.

Yeah, they threw a lot of money at this. But let’s be real, if they can win the House on promises to raise our taxes and throttle our energy production and, oh, yeah, impeach the president that finally got the economy going? We need to up our game, and somehow we need to clean up vote fraud. Which is now infinitely harder to do, since the loons got the power. No, I’m not giving up. But this is a heck of a corner we’ve got ourselves painted into.

Can’t find anything to argue with there. I wish I could, but I can’t. After committing outrage after outrage against both decency and common sense, after Kavanaugh, the hoax mail-bomber, the illegal-alien invasion caravan, radical transgender lunatics in the ladies’ room, the endless failed attempts to “get” Trump by the Deep State—after all of it, the American voter STILL saw fit to give control of the House to these amoral reprobates. So after a too-brief respite, now we’re all going right back to Mencken’s the government we deserve—good and hard.

Great. Just great.

  2. Glenn Reynolds is calling it a Purple Puddle, which I found sourly amusing.

    Hey, on mornings like this, you takes your amusements where you can get ’em.

  3.

    “There are no political solutions for the problems created by politics.” – Billy Beck, sometime in the Pleistocene.

    And the Two–Four link that used to be in your sidebar tells me you’re as familiar with the axiom as I am, Mike.

    The problem with looking “at the incredible progress made by Trump the last two years” is that generally, only the Right and the Dissident Right who get their news and info from the internet, and the Trump supporters who get updates from his rallies and tweets, even know about that progress. The continuing signal lock that the dying Mainstream Media has has done and is still doing a bangup job of burying the lead on that stuff.

    What this is is a clear signal that the Right and Dissident Right have to finish the destruction of the MSM and build, support, and propagate alternative media infrastructure if you want to have any hope of “political solutions for the problems of politics.”

    Otherwise… ya can’t stop the signal, but you don’t need to stop it if the signal never gets out.

    This election was an IQ test all right, as Roger Simon said…and America flunked.


    “America” didn’t flunk the IQ test. The Right and the Conservatives did fucking decades ago by allowing the Left to take over and control of the Media, Entertainment, Academic, and Education infrastructure and institutions, and by not building alternatives while fighting the Long March.

    And FUCK Roger Simon in his ear – he’s one of the goddamned Cucks that complacently allowed the takeover and Long March up until the War Blogging years where he finally saw a chance to profit off of pretending to form an alternative.

    Simon would have to have an IQ before he gets to say that “America” flunked any kind of IQ test.

    We don’t get to fob this shit off on some nebulous “America”, Mike. This shit is all on us old fossils and dinosaurs, for not fighting effectively enough or hard enough back when it might have made a difference. And it’s all on all of the Cuck Right and RINOs for not fighting at all.

    We don’t get to toss up our hands and say, “Well, gee wiz, America let us down, durr hurr.” We let America down before it even got here.

    (And yeah, I know there’s people like you and I, Mike, who’ve been fighting tooth and nail for over thirty years. We lost. Deal with it, and lets go on from here. We got a lot more fighting left to do.)

    1. Mike: “What it’s going to mean is more endless Trump-bashing investigations into nothing at all”

      IB: “We lost. Deal with it, and lets go on from here. We got a lot more fighting left to do.”

      We could get lucky and the Dems could waste so much time on witch hunts^W^Winvestigations they don’t have time for anything else.

      At least, whatever they want to do, all they can do is propose legislation. The Senate has to also anything the House does, and Trump still has veto power.

      1. Yup. Hey, we might get to hear DJT tell some hapless new Dem Congresscritter, “I don’t need you to pass legislation. I have a pen and a phone, and I’m not afraid to use them,” and watch them explode. 🙂

        1. I hate to break this to you, but the Koch-sucking Rove Republican swill like Mittens and Murkowski and McCarthy would go ballistic as well.

  4. I think it’s a little early to begin the gnashing of teeth and rending of clothes. If history is any guideline, the loonies in the Dem party will start pushing for investigations and impeachment, while the more reasonable Dems (yes, they do exist) will realize that with the Republicans in charge of the senate, that’s a futile effort. But the crazies will push for it anyway, and it could very well split the democrats badly. Should be entertaining to watch.

  5. ” any American concerned about the well-being of the nation and its people”

    There’s your problem, Mike. You still, after all this time, don’t understand the Democrat Socialist Party. They are not concerned about the well-being of the nation and it’s people. The modern DS party is composed of three elements – the Stupid and Insane being led by the Evil.

    The Stupid – these are easy to identify. Low IQ minorities, wage slaves, and the intellectually incurious. They are easily led, and if Stephen Colbert tells them every night that Trump is bad, that rich folks are prospering while they’re not, and that the evil Republicans aren’t making the rich pay their ‘fair share,’ then they cast a Democrat ballot. They have no interest in actually fact-checking or even seeing a correction to a fake news story days later. They eat what they are spoon fed. For instance, I’d count Alexandra Occasional Cortex as among the Stupid – she shows it way too often when she speaks. She might not have a room temperature IQ, but she’s hoovered up what her commie college professors fed her and has no interest in learning more. That’s why she was a bartender with no career prospects despite advanced college degrees. You can talk about economic prosperity with these folks, but it doesn’t matter. They are not really participants in the economy – they are passengers, and built to stay that way. The economy can be up or down, and they will still be pouring coffee, sacking groceries, or getting their welfare checks.

    The Insane – Think for a moment about the hardcore Dems that you know. How many of them have some sort of a diagnosed mental illness? I’m not talking Trump Derangement Syndrome or any of the figurative ‘crazy’ terms we use. I’m talking ACTUAL mental illness. Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Depression, etc. I can’t think of a single hardcore Dem that I know that isn’t mentally ill and medicated. This means that these people can’t deal with their emotions and with reality. When they say they “can’t even,” they MEAN it. They can’t. They view the world through a funhouse mirror, and thus are easily manipulated by those that prey upon their emotions. Again, having a conversation is pointless with these people because within minutes you will “trigger” them and they will lose their shit. This is why, when someone digs up a graphic from 1933 Germany referring to “sleepy eyes” as a Jewish trait, they think that Trump calling Chuck Todd “Sleepy eyes” means that Trump is OMG LITERALLY HITLER!

    The worst is the Evil. The Evil are those people that know damn well what the results of their policies will be – more misery for everyone except the tiny minority running the show. They just believe they will be running the show. That’s why Bernie Sanders talks about socialism while driving a $300,000 car and having four houses. The son of a bitch knows that whatever happens he won’t be hurt. They don’t care if people shit in the streets of San Francisco because they’ll never have to go where they smell it or step in it. The Clintons, Chuck Schumer, Feinstein, Pelosi, et al, are the Evil because they manipulate the stupid and insane. They know that the stupid and insane won’t be helped by them – but THEY PERSONALLY will be enriched, and to them that’s all that counts. The NeverTrump bastards are in the same boat – they know that they’re wrong but it’s all about their own comfy sinecures for being the craven lickspittles that they are.

    The central problem with conservatism remains what it always has been. It’s an intellectual choice, not an emotional one. Conservatives come to their principles honestly by examining evidence, considering consequences both long and short range, and then acting on them. In a generation of young people who are less and less willing to really research and learn, what future does conservatism have?

  6. Another theory is that Trump and Co. could have exposed all the corruption associated with the Dems, and the exposure of all that would’ve destroyed the Demoncrap party. They chose not to, the theory goes, because this is the result they actually wanted. Not because of 4D chess, but because the ruling class has different goals and desires than we peasants.

  7. I share your frustration and disappointment, Mike, but now is not the time to declare the war lost. It’s not as bad as you make it out to be. We could have faced a major defeat. What we’re facing is a setback, and the setback is entirely due to the fact that we haven’t started fighting yet.

    Not you and I, but the rest of the nation. It takes time for a thing like that to gather momentum.

  8. If there’s one small bright light, it’s that we built a majority in the Senate that will make Collins, Murkowski, and even Mittens Romney irrelevant. That means confirmations. And Sessionzzzz is gone now, which he should have been at least a year ago. The next AG should be one tough SOB who cares not a whit for what the media thinks of him. Period. In fact, the interview should go like this:

    “Okay, Kris (just saying), here’s the situation. This is war. Your top priority as Attorney General is to enforce the law against Democrats for a change. That means taking the evidence on the Hillary email scandal, putting it to a Grand Jury, getting an indictment, and prosecuting her before she keels over from ill health, which could be tomorrow. Then, I want you to go after the leakers and liars in the FBI and the CIA. Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Strzok, all of them. Include the Hillary campaign finance money laundering, too. And don’t let them turn themselves in. I wanna see perp walks. You have a year and a half, and IF you do these things, we MIGHT be here in 2021. If not I can guarantee that neither of us will be. You will be hated by the media, perhaps even as much as I am. You will be threatened physically and so will your family. You will be hounded constantly. I know that’s a lot to ask. And I will need to see immediate progress on your objectives; if not, you’re gone in three months. Are you good with that?”

    It’s time to do something that Democrats have done for decades and Republicans never do. Full scorched earth policy. This is war. It’s time to make the enemy defend for a change. Bastards.

    1. UPDATE: Feeble 85 year old Justice Ginsburg has been hospitalized. She took a fall and broke three ribs. Do I hear 6-3? Thank God we built an advantage in the Senate.

  9. I thought this story might interest you.
    It seems to be rapidly disappearing from the media, and is untouched by some sites that I would have expected to report it.

    Maryland Kills Its First Red Flag Gun Confiscation Victim

  10. While it is certainly true that a substantial percentage of the American electorate is low IQ, that is not the main problem. Every society throughout human history has had half of their people on the left side of the IQ bell curve. Since leftists are fully in control of the educational system, these lower IQ fellow citizens are spoon fed Marxist BS without ever really questioning it. Even 100 IQ students who are steeped in leftist claptrap from an early age will generally accept what they are taught. And again, although a huge problem, even this is not the main problem.

    The main problem, and the reason that this mid-term election was not a total wipe out for the Democrat-Communist party, is the Mainstream Media. We had all hoped that truthful news was finally getting around the MSM, through the internet, and through President Trump’s use of Twitter to go around them directly to the people.

    But it obviously is not enough. There is still a large percentage of voters who get their news and political information mostly if not entirely from the MSM. It is anybody’s guess how high that percentage is, but it is huge. Probably at least 25 percent and perhaps as much as 50 percent (or more!) of the voting public gets their news and views from the alphabet media, and from major newspapers, all of which are solidly leftist not only in their editorializing but also in their bias on news stories.

    The MSM coverage is rabidly anti-Trump in all their coverage, and it is 24/7/365. Any story that could, if reported objectively, portray Trump positively is either slanted negatively or it is simply not reported at all. Furthermore, on all the major networks, hardcore leftist values are portrayed as mainstream ‘normal’ values, while traditional, mainstream, wholesome American values are portrayed as extremist.

    Unless the Trump administration can figure out a strategy and a campaign for going scorched earth on the MSM, I am afraid that little will change. The MSM false narratives need to be challenged HARD, in a national press conference, every day. The Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission need to prosecute them for illegal election tampering. The social networking internet giant need to be broken up. There needs to be a full court press, no holds barred battle joined and seen through, with convictions, prison time, and bankruptcies. Trump needs to do to them what Putin did to the oligarchs in Russia, and what Bin Salmon did to the Muslim Brotherhood Saudi elites.

    Anything short of that will not be enough.

  11. It gets worse. As I write this, the Democrats are using their famous “ballot-finding” trick to claw the Senate back too.
