Trump’s Underground Militia scores another win

“This meeting of the Trump Underground Militia will come to order. Jason, how do we stand with our efforts in London?”

“We’ve recruited about 200 of the wierdest, most repulsive whackos in the city. They have promised to show up at protests wearing their most outrageous costumes, and doing their hair in neon bright colors and ridiculous styles.”

“Sounds like a good start. What kind of costumes are we talking about?”

“Well one woman described this pink Statue of Liberty thing she wanted to do, but it turns out she has no idea what the Statue of Liberty actually looks like. We said she was holding a fan instead of a tablet, and the idiot bought it. Then we’ve got a man who dresses as a cat, a person of indeterminate sexuality with some kind of strange pirate getup, a bunch who like to dress in white-face with black makeup, and another person of indeterminate sexuality who likes to display his or her crotch in as vulgar a way as you can imagine.”

“Good! How about signs?”

“We made some suggestions, and those fools just ate them up. They make no sense at all, but that didn’t seem to matter. For example, ‘Don’t grab pussy with blood’ was their favorite, even though it doesn’t make a lick of sense.”

“Did they bite on the Black Lives Matter sign I suggested?”

“Oh, yeah. There wasn’t a black within ten miles, but they thought BLM was great. We told them Trump was racist against blacks and they said ‘Of course he is!’, and they didn’t need to know anything more about BLM.”

“How about the usual papier mache puppets?”

“Oh, we came up with a better idea – a balloon of Trump in a diaper. I though they were going to orgasm right there in front of us. We helped them raise $40,000 for it.”

“Aren’t you afraid they might actually make something impressive with $40K?”

“Those maroons? Not a chance. It ended up being about the size of a car. Anyone who has seen the Macy’s Day parade will laugh at it. The newspapers are already printing photoshopped pictures of this giant balloon over the city, and the actual one will just make them look pathetic.”

“Well done, all. I think we can count this as another major success in our 2020 re-election strategy. I’m sure lots of voters will look at those British protestors and vote for Trump from sheer revulsion.”

“OK, just make sure there are some good pictures of your work for the media to publish.”

Looking at Strzok’s testimony through a post-modern lens

Man who considers himself a transgender woman: “In my mind, I’m a woman. You are required to take my opinions, residing solely in my brain, over any evidence to the contrary. It’s outrageous and insulting to suggest otherwise.”

Peter Strzok, paraphrased from his testimony yesterday: “In my mind, I’m not biased in my professional performance. You are required to take my opinions, residing solely in my brain, over any evidence to the contrary. It’s outrageous and insulting to suggest otherwise.”

It’s no accident that this comparison feels valid. The parallels are there. They come from the post-modern idea that there is no objective truth. There is only the narrative.

A man with gender dysphoria doesn’t believe in objective facts about his situation. He believes only in what he feels, and what he can get others to accept. If he gets a critical mass of people to agree that he’s a woman, then the narrative is established, and the rest of us are not supposed to challenge it with any of our grubby facts and evidence.

When it comes to Peter Strzok’s motivations and actions, he doesn’t believe in objective facts either. Not even for the purposes of law enforcement. The FBI has shown that facts in cases against people they dislike are not particularly important. What’s important is what they can get a grand jury, a judge, and the public to go along with. The narrative is that a minor misstatement by innocuous people like Martha Stewart or Scooter Libby is a heinous crime, deserving of prison time, whereas breaking federal law for years and mishandling classified information is no big deal and certainly not worthy of prosecution.

In the testimony yesterday, Strzok’s narrative is that he might have a teensy weensy bit of bias against Trump and for Hillary, but he’s such a superman that he never, ever, not for a single moment, allowed that bias to affect his professional performance.

This doesn’t pass the laugh test.

Yet, the post-modern left, including Strzok’s toadying allies in the Democrat Party and the media, defend him to the hilt. I call them all post-modern because the truth about the situation is entirely irrelevant when it comes to what the left wants and needs. What matters is what kind of narrative they can spin and get accepted.

That narrative doesn’t have to be actually believed by their opponents. Many people look at a man with gender dysphoria, and simply don’t believe that he’s a woman. They know the biology, and they know how people can deceive themselves into believing all kinds of nutty things. But the howler monkey gallery on the left will descend upon them if they make that opinion known. So they never say what they believe about it; life is hard, and there’s just no benefit to standing up to a psychologically disturbed person and stating the truth.

Similarly, the media and the Democrats don’t care if you or I believe Strzok is a lying sack of shit and a thug with a badge, or if we think the investigations he drove were explicitly to help the side he likes and sabotage the side he hates. They just want there to be enough people around parroting their narrative about him, so that if we say something negative about Strzok in polite conversation, one of their brainwashed howler monkeys will jump in with “How dare you?”

Much of the left’s energy in modern day society is devoted to constantly, continuously battling the truth that makes them look bad. Their main weapon is to make discussion of such truth out of bounds. They have many tactics to do that; we saw some on the floor of the Congress yesterday.

I think the most important single reason they loathe Trump with all their being is that he says what he thinks anyway, swatting their outrage aside like a gnat, and thereby poses an existential threat to their main means of control.

We all better hope Trump is successful in rendering that tactic ineffective. Otherwise, the end result is two political sides that hate each others’ guts and have no way to communicate about it.

Let me be clear, in case it isn’t obvious: the side that is responsible for that state of affairs is the one that abandoned truth in favor of post-modernist thinking. You can’t argue with them in Enlightenment fashion because they don’t accept the premises of the Enlightenment.

At this point, the left’s complete capitulation to post-modernism means that they have shut off all paths to a peaceful resolution. It’s about attaining and maintaining power for them now. Until people like Trey Gowdy and Jeff Sessions(zzz) are prepared to accept this reality and use every means at their disposal, including force. For example, they need to be jailing perps such as Strzok, Page, Comey, Lerner, Koskinen, McCabe, et.al. Otherwise, the left pays no price for their thuggishness and denial of reality. They will retain their power to maliciously ruin the lives of their political opponents, and retain control for the left at the federal level, no matter what the citizenry wants.

If allowed to stand, this effectively ends the American experiment. We all know the possibilities that branch outward from that point, and none of them are good.

Guess the real headline

One of the following three headlines is a real one from CNN and AP. Can you spot it?

  • Nigerian hacker threatens to spill Trump secrets, demands payoff
  • Russian model in Thai jail says she’ll spill secrets on Trump if released
  • Former Soviet agent retired in France says he wants payment for archived dirt on Trump from 1980s

CNN broke the story. Here is the AP version. I’m not telling you which one of the above is real, but you can hover over the link and figure it out.

Based on this descent into the bottom of the barrel of tabloid trash, here are some headlines I expect from CNN in the coming weeks:

  • 3 foot tall “Bat Girl” spills details on affair with Trump
  • Barbra Streisand claims Trump is reptilian alien with human skin
  • No records of Donald Trump before UFO crash in Roswell
  • Trump planning secret biological warfare project to wipe out leftists
  • White House haunted; ghost of JFK tells Trump to resign
  • Bigfoot witnessed Trump affair with Stormy Daniels

Master troll strikes again

Trump just announced his 2020 re-election bid.

This does two things. First, it causes all the right heads to explode. Second, it provides a diversion from the media’s monomania over Parkland.

Related, this week The New Republic published an article entitled How Trump Wins Reelection. I found the subtitle highly amusing:

Last year, it seemed certain that he would be a one-term president—if he even lasted that long. But he has a plausible path to victory in 2020.

Certain? One would think that, having had their asses handed to them on election night 2016, the leftist punditry class would have been a wee bit more cautious with their political prognostications in 2017.

But, as I’ve long said, that would have made it much harder for them to sleep at night. They hate Trump, but even more, they hate what he represents: an existential threat to their cozy political class dominance of government, media, education, and entertainment. 

 

Some have finally stopped drugging themselves with CNN long enough to realize that Trump is growing stronger by the month. But they’re still missing something key: we’re in a new era.

If you read articles such as the one from TNR, they are saturated with analysis based in the pre-Trump era. They don’t realize that we’re in a new world.

I don’t think it’s impossible for Democrats to win in 2018 or 2020, but I do think it’s impossible with their old formulas and their geriatric leadership. The old punditry pseudo-sports commentary about “ground games” and such was never as insightful as those overpaid babblers thought, but 2016 showed that it was total nonsense. Not that this should have been a surprise, based on research. Key quote:

We show that candidates’ share of the vote is not affected by campaign spending.

Our intuition that carpet bombing the airwaves with obnoxious ads had little or no effect on the vote was correct. It’s possible for particular races that campaign spending and get-out-the-vote efforts can have some effect at the margin. But I think 2016 proved that the traditional analysis from bloviating heads is useless.

Remember that when the cascade of articles comes out this summer about a Blue Wave. Remember it when we start seeing increasingly desperate Trump bashing starting about late 2019. Nobody really knows what will happen, but the predictions most likely to be wrong are from these pretentious windbags.

My list of phrases that identify the speaker as an idiot (volume 1)

Hey, this is Billy, not Mike. Naturally, I’m honored that Mike gave me posting privileges here. I have some in-depth things I’ve been working on that will show up here at some point.

For the nonce, I have a few shorter posts. This one should help set the stage, letting those who don’t know me get a feel for my worldview.

It’s my list of words and phrases that will immediately cause me to think someone is a complete idiot if they use them unironically. It’s incomplete, of course; modern political life furnishes practically an infinite number of such phrases. But this will do as volume 1:

  • “That’s cultural appropriation.”
  • cis-anything that isn’t related to chemistry (update: or astronomy)
  • anybody being “woke”
  • “I’m/he’s/she’s transitioning.”
  • “Blacks can’t be racist.”
  • “Banning guns is the solution to problem X.”
  • “Well, Rachel Maddow said…”
  • “Well, Whoopi Goldberg said…”
  • “Well, George Clooney said…”
  • “Well, Joy Behar said…”
  • “Well, Nancy Pelosi said…” (double idiot points)
  • “Well, the Southern Poverty Law Center said…” (double idiot points)

[must stop here for this subtype – a complete list of this type of idiot marker would require hundreds of entries]

  • “Of course it’s true, I read it in the New York Times.”
  • “Of course it’s true, I saw it on CNN.” (triple idiot points)
  • “We should just switch completely to wind and solar, but the big oil companies won’t let us.”
  • “My senator is a dedicated public servant.”
  • “…the patriarchy…”
  • “My teenager is gender fluid.”
  • “My teenager is transgender and starting to take hormones.”
  • “We’re not assigning a gender to our baby. We will wait until it chooses its own gender.” (triple idiot points)
  • “Gender is a social construct.” (double idiot points)
  • “The gender binary has no biological basis.”
  • “I’m feeding my cat a vegan diet.” (triple idiot points)
  • “Vaccines cause autism.”
  • “I support Bernie Sanders because socialism works and capitalism is a failure.” (Bonus idiot points for someone typing this on a device that could only be produced by capitalism)
  • “I think Oprah would make a good president.”
  • “I think Michelle Obama would make a good president.” (quadruple idiot points)
  • “Black Lives Matter. No, you can’t say All Lives Matter. That’s racist.”
  • “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.”
  • “Americans are undertaxed.”
  • “I insist you use my preferred pronoun, which is ze/zir/hir/wtf.”
  • “He/she/it/ze/zir has the right not to be offended.”
  • “I feel threatened by those words, and I need a safe space.”
  • “Speakers are responsible for the violence they cause when they offend others and cause riots.”
  • “Islam is a religion of peace.”
  • “Hillary is the most qualified person ever to run for president.”
  • “Trump is a fascist.”
  • “Trump is a clown.”
  • “Trump colluded with Russians to throw the election.”

(The next three are idiot markers from the period of 2015-2016)

  • “Trump is running as a stunt.”
  • “Trump has no chance to win the nomination.”
  • “Trump will get crushed by Hillary.”

 

  • “We should have a conversation about that on Twitter.” (double idiot points)
  • “This is my emotional support animal.” (Take care – some cynics game the system to keep their pets with them, and are not properly considered idiots. They are actually assholes.)
  • “Toxic masculinity”
  • “I’m triggered by that.”
  • anything being described as a microaggression

It’s a depressing part of our political scene that everything on this list is said by people who think they are smart and informed. It’s also a testament to just how far the left has wandered into delusional territory. This list spans a wide, wide variety of subjects, and the left is simply batshit insane about every one of them.

I learned at least twenty years ago that there’s no point in arguing with such people, so I don’t. Their worldview is warped into delusion by the post-modern philosophy that has become their substitute religion. (That’s a subject for a future post.)

You can list your own idiot markers in the comments, of course.
