Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Gipper redux, only more so

There you go again.

For the first time since the election of 1984, the Left is on the run and they don’t like it one bit. Back then, they had been stunned when the ignorant, trigger-happy cowboy Ronald Reagan upset Jimmy Carter in 1980; a man they were absolutely sure had almost no chance to win the presidency instead beat the incumbent rather handily. But they were devastated when Reagan crushed Walter Mondale in 1984 in one of the mightiest popular and electoral landslides in American political history. It just could…not…be…that Reagan won 525 electoral votes to Mondale’s 13, 49 states to Mondale’s one, and 54 million popular votes to Mondale’s 37 million.

Of course, it remains to be seen whether Trump follows the same trajectory as Reagan. But he’s off to a much faster start: unemployment down, the Dow up, the economy apparently booming, productivity and growth soaring, help wanted signs everywhere. It took Reagan a couple of years to wring the stench of Carterism out of the economy; Obama’s eight years of deliberate stasis, by contrast, have disappeared practically overnight.

Hence the scalded-snakes reaction to everything Trump does. For all the activity, it’s not so much what Trump is doing, it’s that he’s doing it. This brings to mind Dr. Johnson’s famous observation when told of a female preacher among the Quakers: “Sir, a woman’s preaching is like a dog’s walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.” For far too long, Republicans have preached a good game of governmental reform but utterly failed to deliver; even Reagan never got rid of the Department of Education, nor reclaimed the Panama Canal. So not only was it not done well, it wasn’t done at all.

Those days are now gone. Hardly systematically, but with the great energy in the executive that Alexander Hamilton so admired, Trump has targeted and then taken down a host of Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party edifices. Regarding the former sacred cow of the EPA, he installed environmentalist bête-noire Scott Pruitt to rein it back in. Scornful of Elizabeth Warren’s unconstitutional Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, he sent Mick Mulvaney to oversee its dismantling. International trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and NAFTA are getting their turn in the stocks as well. And as for the fantasy of “climate change,” Trump is making coal and oil great again.

To make matters even worse for them—which means better for normal Americans—their chosen executioners Mueller and Pals have succeeded only in shooting themselves in the foot repeatedly, exposing the sinister Deep State beyond dispute and snaring Hillary and Obama both in a tangled web of treasonous deceit. Combine that with the Left’s very public collapse into batshit lunacy; Democrat Socialist advocacy for a zombie economy, higher taxes, higher gas prices, and foreign-policy humiliation; and a constant drumbeat of hatred and contempt for the ordinary people without whose indulgence they would surely starve, and Walsh’s closing question becomes both apt and hilarious.

House of cards, crumbling

Told ya McCabe was only the first worm to turn.

FBI agent Peter Strzok, whose controversial text messages with an ex-FBI lawyer exposed apparent wrongdoing inside the Department of Justice, is willing to testify before Congress, his lawyer said in a surprise letter Sunday.

Goelman said Strzok is willing to testify without immunity and would not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to any question from a member of Congress. He also said Strzok is willing to testify before any committee that requests him.

There’ll be more Deep Staters crawling out from their grubby little holes in hopes of saving their asses before the rising tide of Truth inundates ’em. A quote from Jerry Pournelle’s “The Prince” collection seems apropos: “They demanded their rights. We’ll give them their due. We’ll give them justice.” No more, no less.

Free trade flimflam

It has never existed on this planet. And it never will.

Generally-speaking, the US has low to zero tariffs on darn near everyone — well, we did until recently. That’s changing, and it’s changing because other nations won’t drop their tariffs.

EU nations generally levy a 10% tariff on US cars. Ours is 2.5%. Explain to me why we should allow that, when the entirety of the EU is considered a first-world nation and needs no special protection.

Canada tariffs a wide variety of agricultural products, from dairy to beef. Some of the tariffs are outright confiscatory, including dairy at more than 200%. Please explain to me how this is “free trade” and why Canada should have zero (or near-zero) tariffs on steel they wish to export into the US — especially when some of it is being diverted from China to evade anti-dumping penalties we leveled against them.

If the G7 is about first-world nations doing business on equal footing, which is it’s claim to fame, then let’s insist that it be exactly that. Those who are unwilling to live up to the rules can get out or be kicked out, but it’s time to quit pussyfooting around and coddling jackasses who think America is their ATM machine to prop up whatever political fetish they have been afflicted with today, whether it be rapefugees or glo-bull-warming.

Know what actually makes free-traders, libertarian ideologues, libtards, and NeverTrump GOPe nitwits alike squeal in horror over this? The possibility that, after so many years of being the world’s whipping boy, America’s willingness to be taken advantage of via the free-trade/tariff grift might at last be coming to an end.

How they can think they’re going to somehow win more votes by being viscerally opposed to Trump’s insistence on putting America first—which is exactly what Karl is getting at in his last line above—is way beyond me.

Update! Schlichter slams the elitist scam.

I keep asking the establishment shills why America has some moral obligation to tolerate foreign countries imposing higher tariffs upon us than we impose upon them. Seems facially unfair, right? So, there’s got to be a really good reason because how can you support our working people facing a higher obstacle to trade than the foreigners do? I’m just wondering what’s wrong with a level playing field. Fair is fair, right? But I never get a good answer.

When your job gets shipped to Oaxaca so somebody who looks like Mitt Romney can import the products you used to make back into the USA, don’t look to the elite to care. Care? They’ll applaud.

They are seeking to ensure their own gravy train doesn’t get derailed. This is why they tell you, in between informing you how stupid you are, that there are only a few tariffs out there and they don’t matter. Well, they sure as heck don’t matter to these think tank jockeys and media scribblers. They are not the guys getting up at 4 a.m. to milk the cows or to harvest the soybeans the tariffs target. They’ve never worked on a vehicle assembly line in their lives, so what’s it matter to them if Germany’s tariff on US cars is four times ours to theirs? Of course, the tariffs on US products don’t matter to the elite. They aren’t the guys who lose their jobs when their company picks up and moves to Vietnam.

I don’t like tariffs. I’d tear them all down, everywhere, just like Trump proposed. But the elite isn’t for that. It’s only against tariffs we impose to retaliate for the tariffs the foreigners impose.

Pretty much, yeah. But as I said above and Kurt provides examples of, it ain’t just the tariffs they’re against here. It’s the oh-so-gauche notion of putting America first that really frosts their nuts.

Local tapeworm pops off

Her tears of anguish are like manna from Heaven to me.

I had spent the morning sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with my 16-year-old daughter, Katherine, whose silent tears on election night in 2016 had marked the beginning of this national nightmare for me. She had insisted we drive from Charlotte to D.C. this year so that we could “protest in front of the president’s house.” We heard all of the inspiring speakers; we relished the creativity of the posters and slogans. Being among so many like-minded people was comforting. I heard one woman say, “I love being here today. It makes me feel less alone.”

I wanted to be with people who shared my anger. Because I have been so angry about Donald Trump this past year. I have been angry at my country for electing this man, angry at my neighbors who support him, angry at the wealthy who sacrificed our country and its goodness for tax breaks, angry at the coal miners who believed his promises.

So very compassionate of you to be enraged at poor working stiffs who preferred keeping their damned jobs to losing their livelihood and going on the the dole. Providing remoras like you with affordable electricity for your homes in so doing, I might add. If I had to choose between those miners being miserable and YOU being miserable…well. No difficult choice, that, six days a week and twice on Sunday.

My fury has been bottomless.

Because your side lost a friggin’ election. Gee, what a healthy, stable, well-rounded individual you must be. A sterling example for your young daughter, an inspiration to all who know you, and the life of every party you get invited to. If any.

I drink my morning coffee from a cup that says, “I hate to wake up when Donald Trump is President.”

Then make life better for all of us and stop.

After the march, Katherine and I hit the road in the late afternoon, feeling good; we had done our part to express our outrage. We were about 90 minutes south of D.C. when I heard a terrible popping sound. I assumed I had blown a tire and headed toward the nearest exit. The popping was followed by screeching — were we now driving on metal? Luckily, there was a gas station right off the exit.

Before I could do anything but park my gray Prius, a man rushed over. “I heard you coming down that road,” he said. Before I could say much he started surveying the situation. He didn’t so much offer to help us as get right to work.

It turned out that I hadn’t blown a tire; a huge piece of plastic under the front bumper had come loose, causing the screeching as it scraped along the road. After determining that he couldn’t cut the plastic off, he ran over to his car to grab some zip ties so that he could secure the piece back in place.

He did all of this so quickly that I didn’t have time to grab the prominent RESIST sticker on the side of my car, which suddenly felt needlessly alienating.

“Alienating” my red, raw ass. Admit the truth: you were scared he’d see the thing, you gutless, presumptious little shrike.

As this man lay on the ground under my car with his miracle zip ties, I asked if he thought they would hold for four more hours of driving.

You could spit on your ass and slide home for all me.

“Just ask any redneck like me what you can do with zip ties — well, zip ties and duct tape. You can solve almost any car problem. You’ll get home safe,” he said, turning to his teenage son standing nearby. “You can say that again,” his son agreed.

The whole interaction lasted 10 minutes, tops. Katherine and I made it home safely.

I think that establishes which of you is actually the better person quite nicely, doesn’t it? But then it gets even better—for certain values of “better,” I mean.

When my husband and I first moved to Charlotte eight years ago,

Ahh—yet another arrogant liberal Yankee who fled the place they ruined and are now beavering away at ruining someplace else.

I liked to tell people that our neighborhood represented the best impulses of America. In our little two-block craftsman-home development, we had people of every political persuasion from liberal to moderate Republican to tea party, and we all got along.

Oh, I just bet you all did. As long as the “moderate Republican” and tea-partier were very, very careful to hold their tongues and not light your fuse.

We held porch parties in the summer and a progressive dinner at Christmas. We put being a cohesive neighborhood above politics.

But this year, I realize, I retreated from my porch. Trump’s cruelty and mendacity demand outrage and the most vigorous resistance a nation can muster.

“Cruelty”? “Mendacity”? On Trump’s part, rather than your own? Oh, the irony is all over this one like a bad, bad rash. As for “demands,” I hereby demand that you go the fuck back to wherever you came from, you suppurating ass-canker, and stay there. Charlotte has a most regrettable surplus of your type infesting the place already, thanks.

Why Kanye matters

He’s a harbinger of Democrat-Socialist doom. And they know it.

What this poll (showing a doubling of black support for Trump—M) represents is Democrats’ worst nightmare coming true. Their black voting base, which has been taken for granted for years, is suddenly in play, and in a year when Democrats have assured themselves that they have the retaking of Congress in the bag. Black turnout is what put Barack Obama in office in 2008, and now even black support is no longer a given for them.

It’s probably not Kanye alone who is responsible for this, given the stunningly improved state of the Trump economy, where black unemployment has dropped to historic lows. But Kanye was probably the activator. Black people can see that their job prospects are the best in history; they can see the bigger paychecks; they can relate to Kanye’s recent remarks that Barack Obama did zilch for the black community in his hometown of Chicgo; and suddenly, Kanye’s break makes sense to them, just as it does to an extreme individualist like Kanye. It all falls into place.

The shift in black opinion represents a major break in the cultural firewall that has kept black people from embracing the Republican Party and left them taken for granted by Democrats. Do Democrats pay any attention to widespread black views on gay marriage or transgenderism, for example? Do they pay any attention to whether black teenagers need jobs and how calls for minimum wage hikes shut them out of the market? Do Democrats pay any attention to how gun-free zones facilitate violence in black neighborhoods in places such as Chicago? Do they pay any attention to how illegal immigration has driven down the wages of black unskilled workers? Not in the least: The only thing they ask themselves is where else black people can go – and well, now they have their answer, because Kanye opened that door.

Kanye has of course been guilty of jackassery aplenty in the past, some of which I’ve pretty sharply disparaged him here for if memory serves. It’s unlikely to say the least that I’d agree with him on his every opinion or statement. Nor do I expect to, nor do I much care. For that matter, I don’t agree with Trump on everything either, and it would probably worry me some if I did.

Love him or hate him, though, Kanye’s move is still hugely important, and I still heartily applaud him for it. It’s the crack in the dyke that precedes the deluge, one that’s going to require a hell of a lot more than just a little Dutch boy’s finger to plug. The Democrat Socialists’ terror-stricken denunciations prove that well enough. His opinion matters to a large segment of black America, and he’s just given them the go-ahead to liberate themselves from the Democrat-Socialist plantation at long last.

Welcome to the party, Kanye; put your feet up and make yourself t’ home, as we say around these parts.

Gimme back my wig

And my culture. Bonus points for knowing where my title was, umm, appropriated from.

The Utah high school student who wore a Chinese dress for her senior prom has a message for those who attacked her for “cultural appropriation” on Twitter: “I would wear the dress again.”

Keziah Daum, 18, wanted to find a dress for her prom that would stand out while also being classy, saying that she wanted a dress that “didn’t reveal too much of the chest and neck area [or] too much legs and shoulders.”

Daum quickly found the tweet that was directing harassment at her, which came from a man named Jeremy Lam, who wrote: “My culture is NOT your g*****n prom dress.”

Follows in the linked article, a list of sidesplitting Tweets supporting her, my favorite of which would have to be this one:



Another good ‘un lambasting the twit:



There’s lots more of ’em, but I’ll close it out here with Schlichter’s hearty fuck-you:



Amen to all that. It’s a beautiful dress, Miss Daum is a beautiful girl who looks great in it, and whiny-ass bitch Jeremy Lem should go take a flying fuck at a plate-glass window at the earliest opportunity.

Update! Strong message follows, from Klavan:

Cultural appropriation is not a glitch of American life. It’s a feature. It’s part of what makes the country great. We take your culture, we get rid of the oppression, the mass murder, the slavery, the intransigent poverty and the endless internecine wars. We keep the pasta and the funny hats, and occasionally we dress up as you on Halloween. It’s a good deal for everyone.

People who get angry about pretty girls wearing pretty dresses have lost the plot of life. Same with people who get angry about comedians making jokes, silly characters in television cartoons and rap stars who disagree with their politics. These are not bad things. They are good things. They are what real diversity looks like: people of different colors from different places living together as one nation, disagreeing with one another, making fun of each other, stealing fashion ideas from one another, eating each other’s food, marrying each other and celebrating that out of many lesser cultures we are making one new culture, free and prosperous, powerful and great.

Does that bother you? Guess what: you’re an idiot. Are you giving a young lady a hard time about what dress she chooses to wear to prom? Hooray: you’re a bully and a schmuck. Does everything that everybody does or say make you feel offended and angry? I’m happy to report there’s a cure for that. Stop being a leftist and the world will suddenly become very beautiful indeed.

Pretty much, yeah. Note well too, that, as was pointed out by one of the above-mentioned Tweeters, bitch-boy Lem was issuing his petulant demands on the internet—without the slightest trace of irony or awareness of which culture he has to thank for that little innovation. But then, he probably had a cheeseburger for lunch yesterday, too.

My my, but ain’t it just enjoyable as hell when some PC fucktard beclowns himself to such a hilariously fulsome degree?

How you got Trump

A blast from the past (July 2016, to be exact) by Dan McLaughlin at NRO.

There’s a lot to digest here, and few people come out of Coppins’ piece looking good; even its author has his own remorse over mocking Trump’s odds of running, as did many of us who had observed his numerous publicity stunt feints in the past. It’s clear that the Romney campaign’s sensible-at-the-time efforts at keeping a safe distance from Trump fed into Trump’s sense of grievance at the GOP, helping egg him on to a campaign aimed at humbling the party and fracturing its voter base. But perhaps the strongest conclusion one can draw from it is that the White House Correspondents’ Dinner should be abolished.

The WHCD was once a sort of icon of well-intentioned false bonhomie, in which the administration and its adversaries in the press would lay down their swords for a night of good-natured ribbing. The president would deliver some self-deprecating humor, sometimes pointedly making light of their own failures: Bill and Hillary Clinton satirizing the “Harry and Louise” ads that sank HillaryCare, George W. Bush doing a mock hunt for missing WMDs. A comedian would come in to roast the President, as Stephen Colbert did to Bush in 2006. True believers and populists hated the way it made light of substance and played into the idea that everybody in DC thinks the whole thing is a game, but there was also a virtue in enforced civility and the Commander-in-Chief eating humble pie for laughs.

IE, it was a self-congratulatory circle-jerk for the guardians of the status quo.

Wrong then, wrong now, wrong forever

Funny how no matter what the climate may be doing at any given time, the same old Doomsday clowns keep making the same old predictions and offering the same old solutions.

In 1970, the first Earth Day was celebrated — okay, “celebrated” doesn’t capture the funereal tone of the event. The events (organized in part by then hippie and now convicted murderer Ira Einhorn) predicted death, destruction and disease unless we did exactly as progressives commanded.

Behold the coming apocalypse as predicted on and around Earth Day, 1970:

Follows, a list of 13 of the most amusing shrieking freakouts, my favorite of which are these two anguished cris de coeur from eternal buffoon Paul Ehrlich:

  • “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich
  • “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich

Ehrlich is not only a loser and an idiot, of course. He’s also a complete asshole, too. Bottom line:

Paul Ehrlich’s entire career stands as a monument to the ideological imperatives of the world’s elites and the extent to which they exist not just independent from, but in actual opposition to, both science, evidence, reason, and good faith.

The very fact of Paul Ehrlich is an indictment of the bien pensant progressive order. 

He’s the pluperfect example of the pluperfect liberal: doubling down on stupid each and every chance they get…always with other peoples’ money, natch.

Update! Via WRSA, Watts Up has these plus a few more, all for your Earth Day enjoyment.

As popular as hemorrhoids

Weren’t we just talking about vainglorious blowhards a minute ago? And didn’t I mention last night that Comey’s past his sell-by date?

Why yes, we were and I did.

Washington (CNN) When “Fire and Fury” hit bookshelves in January, the release became a Washington event, marked by people lining up at local bookstores and sold-out speaking events for author Michael Wolff. Washingtonian even compared the hype around the release to that of “Harry Potter.”

But DC’s book nerds didn’t turn up for James Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty.” At least not in the masses booksellers might have expected.

“There are more cameras here than people,” one person joked.

Another journalist asked the room: “Is anyone a normal person or is everyone a journalist?”

Only one person — reluctantly — identified himself as a “normal person.”

I have a feeling certain over-eager purchasing agents are going to find themselves in a boiling swivet over this:



You’re going places all right—straight to the dumpster with your precious cart o’ crap, to heave all those unsold books into it.

Instead of frittering away their time on Comey’s claptrap, the emitters of the above fragrant Twitter belch would be far better served by spending some quality time in their safe space with a dictionary reviewing the definition of the word “truth,” of which they seem to have a comically ass-backwards grasp. I can’t find any hard numbers as of yet, but I’ve heard and read it was a similar sad story at his NYC appearance. Even more edifying than Comey inspiring mass indifference amongst the book-buying public, though, is this:

RUSH: Grab sound bite number 23 and play it again. This is Laura Loomer. She comes from the James O’Keefe shop, Project Veritas. She’s now acting independently. She showed up at Comey’s book signing event at Barnes & Noble in New York last night.

LOOMER: How is it ethical to brief the president of the United States on an unverifiable and salacious dossier, and how is it ethical leadership to not tell him that his political opposition, Hillary Clinton, paid for that? You are not an ethical leader!

MAN: Ma’am, you’re gonna have to leave.

LOOMER: You’re gonna get prosecuted, Comey! You’re gonna get locked up!

T’is a consummation devoutly to be wished, that is. Comey, and the whole gang of sewer-crawlers with him, too. A tip of the cap to Loomer for speaking truth to (former) power.

Later, Jimmy-boy. Good luck in prison. Remember to bring lots of soap and cigarettes. Might want to give country music legend Kinky Friedman’s heartrending ode to jailhouse love gone awry “It’s Hard To Relax Your Sphincter When You’re Crying” a careful listen or three, too.

Nope, not sticking yet

Oh, we REALLY got him now!

So, the president may have been cavorting with Playboy playmates and porn stars a decade or so ago and…and what? Oh, right, we’re supposed to care.

We don’t care. We can’t.

And you can almost see the liberals drooling. You can see their Fredocon gimp bros’ nodding their vinyl-encased heads.

Yes, yes, this is finally it! This time we’ll strip Donald Trump’s supporters from him because he failed to meet the standards we think our opponents should adhere to! This time it will work!

Nah. We just don’t care.

I don’t mean that we are simply unconcerned about Donald Trump’s past hobbies. I mean that our depth and breadth of not caring is so deep and wide as to create a critical mass of not giving a damn of such intensity that it is brighter than a million suns.

I seem to recollect somebody or other, may have been Schlichter himself, scoffing at Lefty’s ludicrous hope that red-blooded Normal males would react to the SCANDALOUS!!! news that years ago (or hell, last night, for that matter) Trump boffed a hot porno dish with anything other than amusement, tinged perhaps by a bit of mild envy.

Admittedly, though, this latest shit-fit serves the useful purpose of reminding us yet again of liberalism’s irreconcilable, even nonsensical, contradictions: sudden sanctimony from the very same avowed libertines who so pridefully claim credit for unleashing the Sexual Revolution, for instance. We’re talking here about people who, on other occasions, demand respect and tolerance for “sex workers” and their “art”—in the immediate wake of denouncing all (heterosexual) sex as “oppression” and even “rape,” as often as not.

Then they bitterly complain about where all the “good men” disappeared to, and why even their de-balled, pantywaisted Pajama Boys don’t seem terribly interested in “commitment” to such as they. A real head-scratcher, that one.

And then there’s this, of course:

We talk a lot about the New Rules, and how the liberals and their lackeys are going to hate them. Well, they certainly do hate them. No, not because they have something against kinky side action. There’s no need to remind these hypocrites of their affinity for Bill Clinton, he of the human humidor and the Oval Office bad aim. Oh, and don’t forget the Lion of the Senate, Teddy “Vroom Vroom Splash Splash” Kennedy, the chef who liked to whip up the occasional waitress sandwich after getting staggeringly hammered. I once saw him stumbling out of the senators’ elevator when I interned on Capitol Hill – he smelled like a distillery and his nose was redder than Rudolph’s. So when liberals start telling us we should freak out and abandon a Republican who’s laying down the smack on Obama’s legacy because he used to indulge in his own reindeer games, well, that’s just not happening.

Nope, sure ain’t. But you liberal idiots feel free to keep on throwing everything you can at that wall, then shrieking hysterically when all you get out of us for your trouble—UNEXPECTED!™—is either an “attaboy, Donald!” or a hearty “hell yeah!”

They’re making fools of themselves, and they’re all too damned stupid to even know it. Progtard anguish surely must be the most sidesplitting clown act any circus ever had; Ringling Bros could only DREAM of coming up with as entertaining an act as these frenzied nitwits put on.

Vile, raddled, drunk old shrike takes yet another tumble

Too bad Healthy Hillary!™’s minders kept her from the full faceplant.


HealthyHillaryFalls-2.jpg

Incredibly, it has been suggested that she is deserving of pity. No, really.

Women like Clinton have spent their entire adult lives hating the society in which they live and wanting to change it. They’ve spent their entire adult lives trying to convince other women to hate the society in which they live and wanting to change it. How exhausting.

So, after all that time, after all those decades of trying to get women to think as feminists do, imagine what it was like for Clinton to be rejected by more than half of the women who look like her (white). Even worse, she lost them to a white alpha male who (wisely) rejects the feminist label and who represents everything feminists have fought against for decades?

And to top it all off, Clinton has no real marriage to fall back on in her twilight years. So, it’s only natural she’d lash out at women who have what she doesn’t: women who are happy, married, and who know America isn’t a patriarchy designed to hold women back and down.

So cut Hillary Clinton some slack. Feel sorry for her, not mad at her. And be grateful your life looks nothing like hers.

Okay, that last is right enough. But…cut her some slack? The woman who said this:

“So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards. ‘You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want to, you know, see that Indian-Americans are succeeding more than you are — whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.’”

And this:

“Democrats, going back to my husband and even before, but just in recent times going back to Bill and our candidates and then President Obama, have been losing the vote, including white women. We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married white women,” Clinton said.

She went on to say that white women face an “ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

Clinton said that she was on the way to winning the white women vote until then-FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to leaders in Congress less than two weeks before the election stating that the FBI reopened its investigation into her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

“All of a sudden white women, who were going to vote for me and frankly standing up to the men in their lives and the men in their workplaces, were being told, ‘She’s going to jail. You don’t want to vote for her. It’s terrible, you can’t vote for that.’ So, it just stopped my momentum and it decreased my vote enough because I was ahead. I was winning, and I thought I had fought my way back in the ten days from that letter until the election. I fell a little bit short,” Clinton said.

Even statements such as those, offensive as they are, don’t quite give the loathsome shrew her due. This is a woman who feels it her Divine Right to rule this nation—the ENTIRE nation, not just the coastal urban specks of it she’s so pleased and proud of having won. The rest of the country—you know, that vast but negligible (to her) part where the majority of us live, the part she famously dismissed as being “a basket of deplorables”—she hates down to her very marrow.

But no, to say she hates it doesn’t quite meet the case either. She DESPISES it, and all the people in it who also happen to be the people who make the country work. The people who, to quote dear old George Bailey again, do most of the living and the working and the paying and the dying in this country. The people who enable termagants like Hillary!™ to go right on sneering at them from the comfort, security, and luxury of their crumbling urban ratholes.

Out of the whole mess, this is the part that I like best, and is probably the most revealing of the fascist core of the Progressivist mindset:

If people were looking for a reality TV campaign, maybe I should have given them more entertainment. I’m the mother who says, ‘Eat your spinach, you’ll grow up strong.’ Someone else is saying, ‘Eat all the fast food and the ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth.’

Yeah, sure. While we Normals are saying “mind your own goddamned business, you meddlesome tyrant; I ain’t a kid, and you ain’t my mother.” This observation is pretty scalding too:

Hillary’s attire for her acrobatic spill was a jaunty straw hat, scrappy Birkenstocks, a kurt, and capris that resembled enormous white sails. Even stranger than her getup were Hillary’s male escorts, especially since a few days prior, she had accused white females of leaning on men to tell them how to vote.

The woman who would lean on two men to make her way down 15 steps went on to say that white women face an “ongoing pressure to vote the way that [their] husband[s], [their] boss[es], [their] son[s], whoever, believe[ they] should.”

How is Hillary’s opinion that white women should have voted for her merely because they’re white and women any less sexist and racist than the belief that domineering white males control white females?

Either way, according to Hillary Clinton, it’s subservient white women who are responsible for her not having the opportunity to slip and fall down the Grand Staircase in the White House!

Sympathy for such an odious example of damned near everything wrong with not just feminism but “liberalism” itself? Not a chance. This is a woman who, had she been able to defraud her way into the White House, intended to A) disarm us; B) enact more strangling, prosperity-killing regulation; C) continue ignoring border security and importing more unassimilable hordes of unskilled Mexican perpetual dependents and Muslim killers; D) reinforce the Deep State status quo in any way she could contrive; E) never miss a single opportunity to lecture Normals about how “deplorable” we all are; F) forestall the energy independence we currently enjoy by harassing oil companies and propping up “green energy” scam artists with federal funds distributed in the most profligate fashion imaginable; G) extend and entrench the federal Leviathan’s power over us; H) in general, make the “American decline” she and her fellow shitlibs so fervently long for a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Sympathy? Sorry, not from here. Not ever. Fuck her. In her cirrhotic liver, with a rusty railroad spike. And her little dog Huma, too.

As I’ve so often said, if Trump never accomplished one single thing other than pulling this monstrous, power-mad harpy’s fangs for good, the nation would still owe him an enormous debt of gratitude. Instead of receiving even the slightest sympathy from real Americans, the Hildebeast ought to be attacked and/or mocked every time the opportunity presents itself—vigorously, venomously, and without mercy or hesitation, right up until the day when she takes yet another of her habitual dipsomaniacal tumbles and breaks her filthy fucking neck at last.

And that frabjous day should then be declared a national holiday, to be celebrated with fireworks, patriotic speeches, and prayers of thanksgiving for our national deliverance. Now THAT, Her Herness has definitely earned.

“Let’s Put A Tariff On Snobs”

Hell with that. Let’s put a bounty on ’em. Take the pelts down to the bank to trade for a free toaster oven, while supplies last.

I like free trade – I just don’t like snooty ideologues who won’t take their own country’s side in a trade fight. The ideal market means a willing buyer and a willing seller paying a mutually agreed price for goods or services with minimal government interference. That’s called “capitalism,” and as a business owner and someone who digs prosperity, I really like it. So why am I not wetting myself about Donald Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs?

Cue the True Conservatives™ to tell me it’s because I’m stupid and terrible and awful. I know how they work. It was only a few years ago that I might have been with them. And they aren’t totally wrong opposing trade barriers – in the macro, free trade is a powerful engine of prosperity, the most powerful ever devised. But the key part of “free trade” is the “free” part, and they never want to talk about that when it comes to holding the foreigners accountable.

My question, one a lot of Americans before me have been asking and that no one seems to want to answer, is “When does this free trade stuff actually start?” I mean, if we’re going to have free trade, we all understand that this involves us lowering our barriers to imports. Fair enough. We have dropped our barriers – the trade deficit is enormous. We buy from everyone. We got importing stuff down. But what about the other guys, though? We export a lot, to be sure, but is it on equal terms?

We never seem to hear much about that from the Free Trade Crew – a crew I was a part of not long ago, and with which I still sympathize. It’s a simple question – “Do foreigners have exactly the same barriers to entry to their steel and aluminum markets as the United States does?”

And if not, why the hell should we put up with it?

Why, because reasons, of course.

Here’s the thing – foreigners are not always facing the exact same barriers to entry into the United States market as Americans are facing to entering foreign markets. Look, if a U.S. company can’t compete on a level playing field, that’s one thing. Sorry guys. But when it has to push a boulder uphill, that’s another.

Here’s what interests me: other countries are never, ever scolded by our own wet-brained rulers for pursuing their own national interests. Not one liberal or conservacuck shows the least evidence of dismay over, say, the Chinese government Putting China First. But they scream like a live piglet in boiling water over the proposition when even the lowliest ordinary American suggests it might not be a bad idea for us, let alone when Trump does. For them it’s nothing less than a crime against humanity to advocate promoting US interests. Most of them don’t even like to admit that the US might have national interests at all.

I’d like to avoid skirting the edges of fair use and refrain from too much excerpting in order to get to Kurt’s main point, but this next bit is too much to resist:

Well, there are consequences when you ignore the expressed concerns of a large group of Americans. One is named Donald. Trump did not campaign as a free trader – instead, he campaigned as a fair trader and promised that he would put America’s interests – not the interests of the corporate bigwigs who don’t mind sacrificing our people on the altar of their balance sheets – before anything else. Trump ran against 16 others who failed to pick up the torch, and then against a drunken felon who actively hated the Normal Americans who build and feed and fuel this country.

Heh. Told ya it was good. On to the gist.

There’s always some reason we can’t stick up for our own people. There’s always some reason we can’t offend the foreigners. There’s always some principle that demands Americans who didn’t get fancy degrees like we did be the ones getting shafted.

Weird how that works. Except it isn’t working anymore. To the extent free trade has a bad name, it’s because the free traders are less concerned with actual free trade than with the purity of their doctrine. Our voters are not going to support a system where they are getting the short end of the stick, nor should they. How about we demand equal trade terms, and when we don’t get them we make it painful? Because if someone has to suffer the pain that comes with unfair trade, I vote it be the people trading unfairly.

Dammed skippy. Increasingly, though, I find myself way more at ease with tariffs than Schlichter professes to be. There’s a side benefit here he might be missing:




I can’t find another clip I saw earlier wherein steel workers were waxing very damned joyous indeed over the prospect of 500 American workers getting back in harness again.

Now think of it for a minute: it’s a safe bet that almost all of these guys are union guys, Northeastern blue-staters at that. To a man, they’ve probably been as reliably Yellow-Dog voters for Democrats as can be imagined, for their whole lives. Straight-ticket guys. They’re as deeply ensconced in the Democrat Socialist Party’s pocket as urban blacks. Solid, manly fellows for whom voting Republican was about as unthinkable as playing Culture Club on the beer-joint jukebox after work. Or publicly tongue-kissing Boy George there, for that matter.

And now they’ll probably never vote Democrat Socialist again—some, if not most or even all of them. At the very worst, they’re going to be giving it all some very careful consideration as they watch Democrat Socialists and their Vichy GOPe partners alike collapse in conniptions over the awful doom that Trump’s tariff ATROCITY! will no doubt unleash on us all.

Better still, the ones that held onto their jobs during the American steel industry’s long collapse just found their wallets a bit fatter by the Trump tax cuts, along with the bonuses and raises that resulted from them. All of which Pelosi the Louse recently pooh-poohed as “inadequate,” after years and years of never once having put anything into anybody’s pocket except her own.

So once again the Democrat Socialists find themselves in the position of having to argue AGAINST American economic success—against renewed prosperity and hope for the very working stiffs they claim to be so selflessly defending. Against Putting America First. Against Making America Great Again. In short, against every single damned thing that might be of help to them and their families. Things that they can already see helping them, in quite tangible ways. Things that they are experiencing the benefits of directly, not sometime in the hazy future, but right the fuck NOW.

I repeat: the Democrat Socialists are AGAINST all that. They have no other choice. It’s the corner they’ve painted themselves into. Took ’em decades to do it, and now there’s no good or easy way out.

The inescapable takeaway: if it’s good for the Democrat Socialists, it’s bad for America, and vice the versa. Yeah, THAT’S sure to be a winning message come November

Delicious, ain’t it? Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes.

Elect this guy NOW

We need all of him in government we can possibly get.

A Virginia lawmaker’s fiery speech on gun rights triggered some Democrats in the state legislature to leave the floor in an “emotionally shaken” state on Friday and has since gone viral on Facebook.

The video of Delegate Nick Freitas’s hard-hitting speech has garnered over 12 million views on Facebook since it was posted by Conservative Review on Friday. Freitas is running in the Republican primary to challenge U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va).

In his speech, Freitas urged his fellow lawmakers to have an “open and honest debate” that relied on “data, facts, evidence, analysis, reason, logic, etc., etc.” (No wonder Democrats were triggered).

He pointed out that most mass shootings seem to occur in “gun-free zones” and that the shooters tend to come from broken homes.

“Wouldn’t it reasonable to test whether or not the efficacy of gun-free zones have actually achieved what their intended intent is?” he asked. “What sort of government policies have actually encouraged broken homes?”

“Whether it’s Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C., and others that have incredibly strict gun laws and yet for some reason, hasn’t seemed to stop the gun violence in those particular areas,” Freitas said.

The fiery Republican mentioned some bills that were coming up for a vote this year to beef up background checks and ban bump stocks, but lamented that Democrats seem hellbent on “tearing apart or gutting the Second Amendment,” which he argued was one of the reasons why they couldn’t have an honest debate on guns.

“Because, quite frankly, I don’t think any of us on this side of the aisle believe you when you say that’s all you want to do,” he said. “It’ll be bump stocks, it’ll be background checks, it’ll be different kinds of background checks that register the guns, then after that, it will be ‘we have to ban assault weapons,'” he argued.

Another reason why it’s difficult to have an honest and open debate on gun policy, Freitas argued, is because Democrats are always comparing Republicans to Nazis and segregationists.

This is where Freitas really unleashed.

And know what? It WAS. It really, really was. Incredible as it may seem, the above excerpt was only the warmup. He covered all the damned bases once he got going too, using the gun issue as a launching pad for a righteous blast that ought to resound for all time as the pluperfect example of how to properly deal with such base, wormy scoundrels.

I would have cheerfully just reposted the whole damned article but for that danged fair-use thing; no fooling, it really is that good. Trust me, you do NOT want to miss a single word of it. If you aren’t standing up and cheering right out loud by the end, you should probably have your cardiac nurse apply a sizzling jolt from the paddles before it’s too late.

I repeat: we need more like Nick Freitas in government at every level, just as many of them as we can possibly get. The scarcity of hardy souls willing to confront liberal-fascists head on like this—pulling no punches, standing their ground, hitting them right between the eyes with unvarnished truth spoken plainly, bluntly, and without flinching or dissembling—is why we are where we are. We let the scheming termites get away with too much for too long in the name of a phony “civility” that was never reciprocated, a thing not respected as a noble trait but as a weakness to be exploited.

Bravo, bravo, a thousand times over and then some. I dunno, though, I can’t decide whether the reaction puked up by the sniveling, cringing, weeping Democrat-Socialist curs as they fled for their lives is pathetic or hilarious. Guess I’ll have to embrace the healing power of “and” and go with both. This absolutely priceless gem of reflexive Progtard shitwittery in reaction shows how completely Freitas wrecked ’em:

According to the Times-Dispatch, Delegate Lamont Bagby said he viewed Freitas’ remarks as racial “dog-whistling.”

Of COURSE you did. Isn’t everything?

Bawl on, cupcake. Then scurry on off with the rest of the cockroaches before the bad man frightens you even worse.

Even Big Nick’s explanation of why he rained Hell on the shitweasels is awesome:

In an appearance on Fox and Friends Monday, Freitas explained why he went off on the Dems, saying that the rhetoric from the other side had gotten “completely unacceptable” and that he had just gotten tired of it.

You ain’t just whistling Dixie there, brother. A whole lot of us have.

If Freitas ever has to buy his own beer in a bar again for the rest of his life, then we’ll know for sure there really ain’t no justice in this world.

Forever failure

Or: Chickens, home to fucking roost.

The liberals’ lies no longer work, and they are realizing it. Too bad they got nothing else. They demand more power for the government, yet in seemingly every one of these cases it turns out the government has totally dropped the ball. Perhaps tracking down a guy who babbles online about shooting up a school cuts into their on-the-job sexting action. Better give the bureaucrats who screwed-up this and multiple other cases even more power, and take rights away from the citizens who didn’t do anything wrong because…uh…well, uh, you must like mass murder if you dare ask questions like that!

The left is shooting intellectual and rhetorical blanks, because now we’re – wait for it – woke. We see the truth. No one who wants us to give up our guns does so because they want us to be more able to defend ourselves from crime or tyranny. Their agenda is clear, no matter how much they lie and deny.

Disarmament is key to converting us from citizens to subjects, and we’re just not playing that game. So they mutter about the NRA – which you need to join if you dig freedom – and we keep buying guns and ammunition to create the facts on the ground that will ensure their long-sought after end state of another Venezuela will never happen here.

Then there’s their pivot to the latest bimbo trying to use an alleged ancient fling with the president to get some attention. The liberals once again got all aroused by the idea that this would do him in with his fans: Well, your so-called president got with a Playboy Playmate and also a porn star and also a Slovenian super model and…..and…wait…

Yeah, that’ll totally take out Trump. We’ll turn on him because he allegedly scored with too many hot women.

And then there’s Robert Mueller and his agonized admission that no American citizens were willingly involved with Russian meddling in the election. Note the word is now “meddling.” They don’t use the word “collusion” anymore since Mueller admitted that there was no collusion – which is what we’ve been saying for over a year in response to Team Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit’s pathetic attempt to explain away her humiliating defeat at the hands of patriotic Americans.

Instead of frog-marching the whole of Trump World out of the West Wing for partying with Putin, Mueller’s festival of liberal onanism has instead resulted in indictments of a bunch of trolls who remain safely out-of-reach in Vladivostok, the better to avoid the feds being humiliated in court like they were by Cliven Bundy. But hey – they were going for Trump and instead got the mastermind manipulators behind 13 follower accounts such as @MAGATrumpMAGAGuy and @BernieSuperFan72, so that’s almost as good.

Yeah, it’s been a sad week to be a liberal, again. Good.

Very damned good indeed…because the sadder they are, the better the rest of us are doing. Which, when you get right down to it, is what really galls them the most.

I dunno, it’s always seemed to me that for the more childish Progressivist reprobates, the lust to weaken, frustrate, denigrate, and lash out generally at this country springs from an unconscious adolescent-rebellion impulse; when they reflexively denounce the US, they’re somehow getting even with Daddy for some imagined wrong or other. Could be I’m wrong about that; such armchair psychoanalysis is probably of only limited use anyway, and shouldn’t be relied on too much. But I’m just about sure it’s true for at least some of them, and maybe many more of them than I think.

Be all that as it may, the Left’s mindless nihilism has finally painted them into quite a difficult corner, one that will require serious rethinking of their platform and ideals if they’re ever to extricate themselves from it. They’ve left themselves with no other choice but to respond to a brightening economic picture with sour-faced complaint; to revitalizing tax cuts resulting in more money in almost everybody’s pocket with whining about their insignificance—when the last time they themselves offered tax cuts of any kind was during JFK’s administration; to enthusiastic diplomatic responses to Trump’s overtures from everybody but North Korea with—no, seriously—fawning praise for North Korea and its repulsive dictator, as incredible as that may seem to non-deranged people.

In short, they find themselves forced to deny realities that are glaringly clear to all of us, probably including them. But it’s even worse for them than just that. Running on a platform not only of denying an obvious improvement in our circumstances but of actually opposing such a happy development is NOT a formula for electoral success. Optimism, encouragement, faith, and heartfelt patriotic sentiment wins out over gloom, despair, resignation, and supercilious contempt for America and Americans every time. None of those things has ever won many votes.

But what the hell else do they have? Despite my fretful caveat from the other day, I can’t for the life of me see the fall elections as ending in anything less than disaster for them, and probably the same over the next several cycles. Granted, a lot can happen over that period to change things, and very well may. But as things stand, I can’t for the life of me see it happening.

We have reached end-stage Progressivism, and it’s a nightmare for Progressivists. It was never going to end any other way. It’s an ill wind indeed that blows no man any good; the bonfire of liberal vanities is gonna be great for toasting marshmallows over.

Mea culpa!

TR offers up one, for the analysis I posted here the other day:

Boy, was I wrong! In my previous piece on Mueller’s joke of an investigation, I suggested that his Hail Mary would be a perjury trap laid for President Trump – one which, given the POTUS’ lack of precision and lawyerspeak, might have been successful.

Instead, Mueller pulled a move that is so genius, Wile E. Coyote would approve. He indicted 13 Russian ham sandwiches of various minor offenses and then charged them all with a “conspiracy.” What makes this move genius, on his part, is that they’re Russian. We have no extradition treaty with Russia. Hence, Mueller will never be asked to prove his charges in a court of law. It’s the ultimate golden parachute for him.

And John Q. Public will never trouble himself to do a little of his own investigation. He’ll never find out, for instance, that the total ad spend with Facebook was somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000. He’ll never be troubled by the fact that over 50% of the efforts with which these Russkies were charged came AFTER the election. He’ll likely not know that the Russians actually staged pro and con Trump rallies on the same day. And not knowing these things – because these are facts that you have to DIG for nowadays – he’ll likely think that Trump did in fact conspire with the Russians. And with 13 commies indicted, it just HASTA be a big conspiracy! It’s truly genius on Mueller’s part.

Except.

Except that it appears that the Flynn indictment and plea might be vacated due to prosecutorial misconduct. How are they gonna hide that one?

Except that the UraniumOne investigation continues to be ongoing.

Except that the IG’s investigation of Felona Von Pantsuit’s email server is going to be released soon, as will Mueller’s role in dealing with that issue.

Except that the revelation that the FBI couldn’t even be bothered to talk to Nikolas Cruz – who was cleverly hiding online with the username of “Nikolas Cruz” – has perhaps pierced the faith that Mr. Public has in the Feebs.

I still think that Mueller is just trying to run out the clock until November, when he can cast enough suspicion over Trump to provoke a Democrat takeover of Congress and then a sham impeachment. The question is whether or not it will work.

That was the real question all along, right from the start. How could it be otherwise, really, since the whole thing was always much more partisan ploy than honest investigation? They’ve operated right along on some badly misguided assumptions: that normal Americans hated Trump as much as they do; that they’re much, much smarter than he is; that the rest of us couldn’t possible EVER catch on to their game; that they could intimidate Trump and/or his staffers into caving in and making some kind of deal with them; that their status as power brokers was permanent, leaving them untouchable.

Now they’re hanging on by their fingernails, scrambling and spinning just to try to keep themselves and their co-conspirators out of the jug (or the gibbet) for committing seriously treasonous crimes they assumed a Hillary! victory would forever provide them cover for. I still maintain the odds of any of them facing appropriate punishment are vanishingly low, but it’s still highly satisfying to see the wind being so thoroughly knocked out of them by all this.

Gonna have to come up with an acronym or some other kind of shorthand for “Why no, I am NOT tired of all the winning yet,” looks like.

CATASTROPHE!

America in CRISIS, Day 1.

What a tragedy it would be if Democrats made good on their threat and decided DACA was so important that they must shut down the federal government over it. Please don’t! Why, I’d be heartbroken if the government did less and a bunch of foreigners didn’t get rewarded for ignoring our laws. I think this is just the right hill for the Democrats to choose to fight to the death on, and I encourage them to do so. Throw us right in that briar patch, because you are smart and savvy and there’s no way a big dummy like Trump could beat you and make you look like fools.

Again.

Heh. Yep. Y’all be sure to keep on fucking that chicken, Democrat-Socialists.

Here’s the thing – most of Trump supporters aren’t takers – they’re makers. They’re the people the government flunkies come to with their palms up whenever some bureaucrat wants to spend a zillion bucks studying LGBT issues among Antarctic penguins or funding the NPR’s X-rated reenactments of the Nativity. How sad are Trump’s supporters going to be if the deal is, “We don’t hand over citizenship to a bunch of people who shouldn’t be here and everyone they’re related to down to their 29th cousin three times removed, and in return, we make the government stop spending money.”

There is literally no Trump voter who will say, “Why, that’s a terrible deal! If that happens, we don’t give amnesty and we don’t spend money!”

Not one.

To the extent that a shut-down hurts some of the government’s few useful employees, like the members of our military, I eagerly look forward to Chuck n’ Nancy and the other circus freaks who make up the Democrat Capitol Crew explaining to the American people why they chose to make our men and women in uniform suffer so the Democrats can import some new ballot stuffers. “Support the troops unless we need to screw them over so we can ship in foreigners to vote for future Maryland Senator Chelsea Manning” seems like a flawed message, which is why I heartily encourage the Dems to try it out.

See, here’s the problem for the Democrats: You shut down the federal government and the vast majority of Republicans will do just fine. Hell, they’ll positively thrive. But the Democrats? Their constituents are both the chunky bureaucrats who make $100K a year shuttling papers from Box A into Box B, and the lazy layabouts who exist to wait for the postman – who should be privatized – to bring their check from Uncle Sucker.

So if the Democrats decide to shut down the government over DACA, awesome. Go out and make the case that, in addition to all the other inconveniences, injuries, and expenses Americans have borne as a result of people disrespecting our laws and coming here illegally, we now have to shut down our government because of them too. Sounds like a well thought-out plan. Go ahead, Dems. Give it a try. There’s no way Trump is going to humiliate you again. Sure, you tell yourselves that every time you go up against him, but hey, you gotta win sometime.

Absolutely they do! So along with Kurt, I enthusiastically endorse this latest brilliant Democrat-Socialist maneuver, and look forward to them disproving Einstein’s (or whoever’s) famous rule and getting a different result this time around for sure. As Schlichter notes, they no longer have Oshitstain—or Her Herness—in office to run cover for them by making any “shutdown” inconvenient for as many people as possible.

They managed to hang it around Republican necks the last go, and did so with ease; they’re playing on a very different field now, whether they’ve realized that yet or not. They’ll still have their liberal media Spirit Squad trying to whip up a panicked frenzy among somebody other than residents of their decaying urban refuges, of course. But there’s not nearly as many of us out here in Real America buying the tripe they’re peddling these days as there used to be—which is another thing that seems to be escaping their notice, and just might turn out to be kind of, y’know, important.

Stacking the deck

The Left badly needs a new electorate. And they’ve been working hard as they can to get themselves one.

Why do we have an immigration system that favors countries on fire vs countries not on fire?

I’ve spoken to a British immigration lawyer who told me how hard it is for Brits to move to this country. If you have something to contribute to this country, stay out. If you’re going to be on welfare for the next three generations, go to the head of the line.

The left would never admit that it’s policy, but it’s policy.

It’s not purely partisan. That hypothetical Norwegian immigrant is very far from a sure GOP vote. It’s quite possible that a Norwegian immigrant is as statistically likely to vote Dem as a Haitian immigrant. And may even be more professionally left-wing.

But that’s not the only issue.

The left doesn’t just want likely voters that lean their way. Many welfare immigrants will never bother to get citizenship and have poor voter turnout rates. But they utilize as much of the system as possible. And that’s where the real money is.

Remember, elections come and go, but the bureaucracy endures. 

Yep—and dependency on Uncle Sugartit is forever. But it really is about more than just stuffing more Wards ‘O The State into the maw of the Machine:

The Center For American Progress (CAP) Action Fund circulated a memo on Monday calling illegal immigrants brought here at a young age — so-called “Dreamers” — a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

The memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, was sent around to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

Their ideology is stagnant, their policies stale, their programs the same old reliable failure they’ve always been; Trump’s remarkable ascension, stunning as it was to the business-as-usual DC remoras, would seem to demonstrate that enough voters now realize it to send them packing.

Admittedly, cobbling together a new electorate isn’t the entire Democrat Socialist motive for bringing in hordes of unskilled, illiterate, no more than half-bright immigrants that nobody really wants or needs, just as Daniel argues. But it’s certainly an important part of it—and if you don’t think so, just ask those among them like Palmieri who are at least smart enough to see the writing on the wall. Ultimately, though, their problem is even bigger, as Limbaugh glancingly mentioned today during a discussion of the Trump tax cuts:

The increase in your standard of living this year is money that the government did not get because the Republicans cut your taxes. And that’s it in a nutshell. And this is something, again, not one Democrat voted for. This is something that pretty much every member of the Democrat leadership lied about. This is something that no Democrat, not only didn’t vote for, but probably doesn’t support. This is a threat to Democrats! Rising economic stability, rising standards of living, less dependence on government?

Those are not good things. As I said yesterday, the Democrat Party is the one political party that profits from poverty, the one political party that attempts to grow and enrich itself with poverty. The Democrat Party is the Democrat Party that stakes its future on a constant underclass in poverty. Yet they claim they’re for the little guy.

And this right here—their cynical reliance on widespread, intractable poverty as a mechanism for gaining and maintaining power, their despicable pimping of helplessness and hopelessness—is why they’re almost certainly doomed. As I’ve said right along, they have revealed themselves as being unalterably, implacably opposed to the very idea of Making America Great Again. How does any party so twisted and perverse transform itself into something most normal Americans would ever want to vote for—especially at the moment those Americans are experiencing real, practical benefit from an America throwing off its Democrat-forged shackles and slowly but steadily rising to its feet once more?

Trump is undeniably getting results, and Americans are seeing the fruits of his labor in their own wallets, which means more to them than just about anything else, I’d bet. No, he hasn’t made good on every last promise he made as of yet, sure enough, and there’s nothing wrong with holding his feet to the fire when he looks like needing it. But the bottom line is this: can anybody out there remember a President that achieved so much of such profound benefit to the nation so quickly—in his first year alone? I’ve been paying attention to this stuff for a long time now, and I sure can’t.

Better still, every move Trump makes in implementing the MAGA agenda amounts to pounding another nail into the Democrat-Socialist coffin—or tossing another golden shovel-full onto their grave, more like. Which, burying them once and for all will likely prove to be the biggest step towards truly making America great again we could ever take, all by itself.

Best of all? Honestly, I cannot for the life of me see a single damned thing they can do about it. After all, they dug that hole themselves, and were so pleased by the excellence of their work that they went and just jumped right on in. Their GOPe handmaidens jumped in with them, following their lead as they always have. All we needed was to find a guy unafraid to take up the shovel himself and start filling in on top of the damned fools.

And so we did.

The Democrat Socialists badly need Trump to be every bit as stupid as they’ve assumed he was all along to bail them out via an immigration botch. He has shown absolutely no evidence to date of that being the case—NONE. Quite the opposite, actually. They now find themselves in the worst position imaginable: the only one who can save them from Trump is…Trump.

Yep, we’re gonna need those Midwestern farmers to grow us a HELL of a lot more corn for popping before all is said and done, I figure.

Fred Reed: what happened?

Aesop rips Fred a new one.

So, in short, get off of Mexico’s dick, they can’t be paying you enough to shill for this sort of nonsense. Just get used to the idea that we’ll soon be stopping your wife’s cousins and nephews from coming here, the remittances will stop, and then you’ll be living in a Third world shithole smack dab in the middle of another revolution, and you’re the gringo in that guacamole.
 
Might want to step away from the keyboard, and work on your tan, amigo.

Read the rest; it’s nothing short of brutal. As y’all CF lifers know, I was always a big fan of Fred’s, excerpting and linking him here many times over many years. But with the advent of the Trumpening he, like so many others, lapsed almost immediately into a particularly virulent strain of NeverTrumptardia, with the most prominent symptom being his howling, obsessive outrage over the very idea of the US reasserting control over its own borders.

It looks like there’s very little hope of recovery from the deadly flat spin Fred is in, which is too bad, really; I do miss the old funnier, saner Fred now and then. But hey, whatcha gonna do?

Nose to the grindstone, people

Time to get back to work at Job One: kicking Lefty while he’s down.

When we gather together this Christmas, it’s going to be super-awkward since everybody is dead because Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Scam, repealed net neutrality, and cut taxes. The depredations of Genghis Khan, the Black Plague, and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate – these are pretty much the same thing. Santa Claus and all of our dreams are dead too.

On the plus side, since we are all dead there’s no one to make egg nog, which is the worst of all possible nogs.

You know what these eggs need? Some milk. And then rum.

No. Whoever invented egg nog is the second grossest human being ever who is not Lena Dunham, exceeded in grossness only by the first person being who thought, “Look, an oyster! I know. I’ll put that slimy thing in my mouth.

The Democrats are the egg nog of American politics. Discuss.

The rest of the column is great fun too, but I felt it was most important to get this part in as the excerpt portion, every word of which I wholeheartedly endorse. Especially that bit about oysters. Ugh.

A sour legacy

It’s slowly being undone, and not a moment too soon.

Barack Obama was inarguably the least Atlanticist president since the end of World War II. Within a year of Russia’s brazen invasion and dismemberment of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, Obama scrapped George W. Bush-era agreements to move radar and missile interceptor installations to Central Europe. In 2013, the last of America’s armored combat units left Europe, ending a 69-year footprint on the Continent. By 2014, there were just two U.S. Army brigades stationed in Europe. The folly of this demobilization became abundantly clear when Vladimir Putin became the first Russian leader since Stalin to invade and annex territory in neighboring Ukraine.

A year later, Putin intervened militarily in Syria, where U.S. forces were already operating, resulting in the most dangerous escalation of tensions between the two nuclear powers since the end of the Cold War. Putin’s move in Syria should not have come as a surprise; Barack Obama outsourced the resolution of the Syrian conflict to Moscow in 2013, if only to avoid making good on his self-set “red line” for intervention in that conflict despite the norm-shattering use of WMDs on civilians. Even Rice’s chief complaint about Trump, his failure to condemn Putin’s brazen intervention in the 2016 election, didn’t elicit a reaction from Barack Obama until the final month of his presidency.

By contrast, and to the surprise of just about everyone, the Trump administration has been tough on Russia. Trump has ordered harsh sanctions on Moscow’s Iranian allies for violating United Nations resolutions—a course the Obama administration declined to take even if it allowed Hezbollah terrorists with direct links to Putin to operate with impunity. He ordered long overdue airstrikes on Putin’s vassal regime in Syria, halting any further use of chemical weapons in the process. Trump not only declined to lift Obama-era sanctions on Moscow, as many feared he would, but expanded them. This administration closed Russian consulates and annexes in the United States. It has targeted Putin allies like Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov under the Magnitsky Act—the same act that Kremlin cutout Natalia Veselnitskaya lobbied the Trump campaign to scuttle. Trump has even gone so far as to open U.S. arms sales to Ukraine, representing a significant blow to Putin’s ambitions in Europe. It is without a doubt that Trump now has a stronger record on Russia than Barack Obama ever did. No wonder Susan Rice is so angry.

Even as early as March of 2017, it was clear that the Obama administration’s foreign-policy professionals were quite insecure about how posterity would remember their stewardship of American interests abroad. They had every reason to be.

They sure did. I said right from the beginning that Obama was going to be way more interested in completing his “fundamental transformation” of America into another staggering socialist shitrapy, and would remain relatively indifferent to foreign policy. Even so, he managed to do plenty of damage with his usual feckless, halfwitted blundering about.

Remember my rule: it’s not that he’s incompetent, it’s that he’s a moron: a vile, hubristic, America-hating douchebag whose success can only mean damage to us all. The ideology he so stubbornly, stupidly hews to has never created anything but misery, impoverishment, and destruction for those unfortunate enough to suffer under it. Even now, he’s not smart enough to see it.

Obama has a legacy all right; even after the mess made by his reign of error has been put right, that legacy will be remembered. But not in the way he hoped and expected. He’ll go down in history as one of the worst presidents the American people ever were foolish enough to elect; thankfully, he’s been succeeded by one of the best. Given the chaotic, ever-fluid nature of foreign relations, the wreckage he left there will be a lot more easily and quickly straightened out than cleaning up his domestic trainwreck will be. But I guess we earned it; we’re the ones who inflicted him on the world, after all.

On the bright side: her desperate fantasies notwithstanding, Hillary!™ will never be president. So we got that going for us, at least.

Unleashing the power of NO

Or, as I prefer to phrase it, the power of “go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut, asshole-eyes.

I don’t care what the SJWs say, think, or do. When they demand that I conform to their dictates, I’ve got a counter-offer.

How about I do exactly what I want and you stand there and suck it up?

See, these idiots have no power if we just laugh at them and say “No.” That’s all it takes to stop all this stupidity cold. What are they going to do? Force us to conform? Unlikely – most of them couldn’t even do a push-up, especially the ones that identify as male. No, they seek to impose a Dictatorship of the Scoldatariat, clinging to power not through bayonets but by constant braying and badgering.

It’s so simple to resist them – we just have to start giggling and saying, “Yeah, no, I’m not going to do that. Take your literally shaking self on a long walk off a short pier.”

Why some people don’t just tell these morons where to get off is baffling.

After all, they’re full of it. You just need to understand that these people don’t care about other cultures – if they loved other cultures so much their sole experience with other cultures would not be accusing their immigrant housekeepers of stealing the silverware.

It’s a pose, a scam, an okie-doke. They want you to shrug and comply. Their strategy is to whine, complain, and annoy you until you become accustomed to obeying. They want to exhaust you with a never-ending litany of accusations of breaking the unending supply of new rules you didn’t know existed before you broke them.

This endless series of new rules is supposed to keep you off-balance and constantly vulnerable to their correction and guidance. You will never, ever be right – there’s always some new infraction for which you must submit to further restrictions of your right to self-governance. And the rules don’t make sense. Remember how you thought it was important for girls to be empowered by play where they model themselves after strong girl characters like Moana? Wrong! You’ve failed again, because in attempting to comply with their gender dictates (and make no mistake – SJWs have just as firm ideas of gender roles as normal people, except their ideas are terrible) you will inevitably run afoul of some other dictate. It’s intersectional all right, like an intersection with no traffic lights where you’re going to end up in a wreck one way or the other.

You can’t win, so why do some people play this game instead of telling these buffoons where to get off?

Because they hope—a singularly vain hope, it is—that eventually, the miserable fucktards will go bother somebody else, and the Normal being harangued can go back to just, well, being normal…thereby avoiding a meaningless, fruitless confrontation with a worthless slice of detritus who was never going to be persuaded to realize the moronic error of his/her/its ways by mere logic anyway.

Unfortunately, misery loving company as it does, said weedy fucktards won’t just dry up and blow away. They just keep popping up again and again, zombielike—their success, as demonstrated by Normal acquiescence, only serving to encouraging them to come back for more and ever bigger bites of our freedom and right to be left the hell alone.

As ever: they will NOT stop. They will have to BE stopped. A good first step towards stopping them might well be to start doing as Schlichter suggests and bluntly inform them, in terms that do not allow for any possible misinterpretation, that you will NOT be paying the slightest attention to their juvenile shrieking, that you hold them in no small contempt, and that their “concerns” are more properly a matter for psychotherapy than they are a legitimate basis for public policy.

Then tell them to eat shit and die gagging on it, and walk away laughing.

Tear down all the things!

T’is a consummation devoutly to be wished.

The proper response of conservatives to the moronic and vicious attack by leftists toward any monument that could conceivably offend the highly developed leftist sense of aggrieved feelings is to join the campaign by identifying monuments to corrupt leftists who have been eulogized in politically corrupt history.

There is no problem finding such corrupt leftists. Consider JFK and all the wicked machinations involving his sordid career. He used organized crime to win the West Virginia primary in 1960, which paved the way for his winning the nomination. JFK stole the 1960 election through massive voter fraud. JFK had affairs not only with movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, but also with underage interns whom he tried to entice into using drugs. 

Or consider Betty Friedan, another idol of the far left. This Marxist toady fought ferociously for America not to send help to Britain when Britain was standing alone against Hitler. Friedan took the position that there was no difference between Britain and Nazi Germany right up to the day Hitler attacked Stalin. During the period in which this ghastly woman was on the side of both Hitler and Stalin – what could be more evil? – she followed Moscow’s party line slavishly.

Friedan rewrote her life into something that never resembled truth. She wrote of the drudgery of housework, though she had household servants who did the real work. She invented whatever was needed to fill her narrative as an exploited woman.

Might we also want to remove all public images of Franklin Roosevelt, who allowed the internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War and who sold down the river all those people in Eastern Europe who had been victims of Nazism – Poles, Czechs, Estonians, Lithuanians, Latvians, and Yugoslavs – into being victims of Stalinism? These were not people whose government had sided with Hitler. They had resisted Hitler.

FDR tried to pack the Supreme Court. He created fascist-like government departments whose oppression of ordinary Americans was well documented at the time. FDR might have even allowed the attack on Pearl Harbor – John Tolland and a number of other historians found that argument compelling, which would surely qualify FDR as the most monstrous president in history.

Surely also America ought to remove every monument to Robert Byrd, the middle-level leader of the Ku Klux Klan, who elicited not the slightest protest from “Civil Rights” leaders, lackeys of the Democratic Party.

If Americans could be persuaded to remove these goons and creeps of the left from all monuments and buildings, then who should replace them? Barry Goldwater would be a good choice.

He damned sure would. I like it. Ohhhh, how I like it. But should this delightful idea ever somehow come to pass, you can be sure it won’t be Republicans who make it happen.

Certainly another candidate is President Reagan, whose life was another example of courage, wisdom, and strength and who, like Goldwater, had not a hint of scandal, bigotry, or self-indulgence. If everywhere that a statue of Robert E. Lee was taken down, a statue of Ronald Reagan were put in its place, that might cool the left into reluctant quiescence. 

Okay, now you’re just dreaming, man.

Comey chaos

If this keeps up, I’m going to need to dig out the ol’ thesaurus to find an alternative to the word “dementia,” because we’re all going to be sick of that one.

Comey’s not going to charge Hillary? What a stand-up guy! The very model of a dedicated public servant!

Comey’s re-opened the Hillary investigation? What a partisan hack! He’s just thrown the election to Trump! This is literally a police state!

Comey’s investigating Trump’s ties to Russia? Thank God! This career civil servant is all that stands between us and that fascist dictator!

Comey’s fingering Huma Abedin for forwarding emails to Carlos Danger? God, this Trump stooge won’t let up, will he?

Trump’s fired Comey? How dare he? This is a crisis for the integrity of our institutions…

As it turns out, he misspoke somewhat on the matter of Huma Abedin sending classified emails to her spambot penis of a hubby to print out during breaks from sexting middle-schoolers. Which is how we arrive at the brain-exploding scenario of Trump firing Comey for being unfair to Hillary. Boy, that Putin is always nine chess moves ahead, isn’t he?

He IS good, isn’t he? I mean, he must be: he has Trump in his back pocket, our national elections under his complete control, and driven the America-hating Left into paroxysms of patriotic fervor for the first time since…well, ever. That’s a record of accomplishment anybody might envy.

IMPEACH TRUMP NOW!!!

Well, that’s it. They’ve finally convinced me, and I’m done with Trump. He has to go; this is a bridge too far for even me.

The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else. The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.

Follows, a truly pathetic freak-out which not only includes the usual deranged and butt-hurt liberal sore losers, but also the neo-“conservative” likes of David Frum and the execrable Jennifer Rubin, who characterizes Trump based on this latest hairball yakked up by the Insane Left as “a man unable to restrain his urges.” I’ll let Bre Payton handle the obvious response to such dementia:

This brings me to the obvious question: WHO CARES? Who cares if the president’s waitstaff are able to anticipate his preferences and have a Diet Coke or a second scoop of ice cream ready? That’s called good customer service! The White House waitstaff serve Trump nearly every day, so of course they know what kind of dressing he likes on his salad or what his beverage of choice is. And why are we all assuming that the other dinner guests couldn’t just ask for another scoop of ice cream if they wanted it? I have a hard time imagining the White House kitchen staff denying someone more dessert.

But that’s not how the inside-the-Beltway folk see it.

Well, naturally not. They’re incapable of seeing anything other than a curtain of purest blood-red when it comes to anything Trump says, does, or attempts.

And that’s the beauty of it, see. He’s got the Beltway cattle in full stampede now, and in true bovine fashion they’re lowing and bawling in confusion and fear as they run they know not where just as hard and fast as their spindly legs will carry them. May their hysteria continue to blind them to the reality that they’re being carefully driven…right off a cliff.

May they continue to find themselves unable to contain their raving madness, and may the sane population see it unleashed in all its repellent pathos. And may that stupid, ignorant, stupid, incompetent, stupidstupidSTUPID swine Trump continue to run rings around their asses, until their options are reduced, literally, to: A) shit, or B) go blind.

Two scoops of ice cream, instead of just one. My God, it’s like Watergate, or the Holocaust, or something. Clearly, the man is unfit to be President.

Heh. I’ll say it again: Most. Fun. Presidency. EVER.
