The revolution has been cancelled

Prediction: there will be no “Red Wave” coming to save us all this November.

People just never learn. Not even two years removed from the neo-Bolshevik Left engineering the outright theft of a Presidential election, where a doddering old fool with dementia received 81 million “votes”, the usual suspects are out proclaiming an incoming “red wave” that will sweep the Grand Old Party back into control of both chambers of Congress.

Granted, there should be a red wave and there would be a red wave, provided that the Republican party was led by anyone with an above room temperature IQ. Red hot inflation, unaffordable gas and food prices, the southern border being overrun, black violent crime running unchecked in most major cities. For any competent political party out of power, winning this fall should be an easy lay-up. But we are talking about the GOP after all.

The problem here, as I keep screaming to the heavens, is that the GOPe is neither stupid nor incompetent. Neither are they lacking in courage. What they in fact ARE is complicit; though they pose as a competitive opposition for the DemonRats, they are actually fully, firmly, and unswervingly in cahoots with them. What we have been hoodwinked for years to think of as a legitimate, more or less correctly functioning Two Party political system is in fact the exclusive playground of a single Party. Which doesn’t mean there isn’t at least one candidate out there deserving of American voter support: Pennsylvania’s John Fetterman.

No, really, I mean it. Seriously, you guys.

Sure “Dr. Oz” is a terrible, unlikable candidate but Fetterman? The guy lived with his parents most of his life, wears a hooded sweatshirt everywhere and had a stroke fairly recently and can barely talk. Yet he is about to be a freaking U.S. Senator. I wonder if he will get a collared shirt to wear or will keep up his phony “guy who has never had a job populism”?

Arthur reels off this litany of Fetterman’s repellent character traits as if they weren’t solid reasons to “vote” for the indolent, misshapen layabout, when in truth the “man” is as perfect an exemplar of the modern “American” political tapeworm as I can imagine. Plus, with Fetterman befouling the US Senate, his lack of ability or accomplishment, overweening self-regard, and obvious inability to utter a coherent sentence will make him a perfect partner for the Usurper in Chief, pResident Pedo Pete himself. With those two creeps infesting Mordor On The Potomac, we’ll have ourselves a matched set. And that’s before we even get around to considering the bizarre neck bulge:

Da Bulge!
Quato lives!

Having read Arthur’s work for long enough and regularly enough by now to be fully cognizant of his intelligence and his writerly skills, don’t anybody think for a minute I’m slamming him here. He knows as well as any of us exactly what blind faith in the ability of our “elections” to produce very much, if anything, in the way of positive outcomes buys us. Thus:

Expectations are already being tamped down in the serious circles while idiot Boomercons on Newsmax and Fox News social media are still yammering about the “red wave”. As for me, I expect to see both chambers of Congress remain in Dem hands, maybe with slimmer majorities. We will see. Either way it will happen without my participation in the farce.

Having cheated once and gotten away with it, why would you think they will ever allow a free and fair election again?

Perzackly. Even assuming a “free and fair election” anyway, say we actually DO put more Repugnicans into national office in November, or any other time. And then…what? Business as usual, that’s what. While I always hate to see DemonRats in power anywhere, at any level, in the end we’re left with one lamentable fact: the only value retained by our entirely corrupt national elections at this point is as pure entertainment.

  1. Either way it will happen without my participation in the farce.

    Pure lazy. It can’t hurt to vote. And I’ll predict that the entire piece, as far as results go, is flat out wrong. There will be a republican takeover by massive numbers in the house, and I’ll predict the senate will be taken as well.

    I will not predict much will change as a result. Perhaps the left will be slowed until the presidency changes back to Trump.

    Trump turned the economy around in <4 years. It can be done again.

    1. Voting at least sends the message that you still see 2+2 as 4.

      In Orwellian terms that is still a protest against Big Brother, even if Big Brother rigs the rest.

      1. If you don’t vote, they don’t even have to cheat. If some don’t vote, it makes cheating easier and harder to pick up on.

        If you vote in overwhelming numbers, then they have to resort to very detectable cheating just like they did in 2020.

        So, you vote. If you don’t you are giving up, giving in.

        1. Bingo.

          Additionally, the gaslighting NeverTrump cannot credibly point to “low turnout” because Trump chose to back the “wrong” candidates.

          Trump got 11 million more legitimate votes (at least, probably more) than in 2016. So turnout wasn’t a problem.

          Plus anyone who drives 17.5% higher turnout as an Incumbent has never lost. Ever. Anywhere that elections are Fair this is the case. In fact, it’s an indication of a Blowout and Landslide win.

          Plus 19 of 20 Bellwethers. It’s an indication of a Blowout and Landslide win.

          Plus the Dems went from 69 million for 0 in 2008 to 66 million for him 2012 and a clearly pumped up 66 for Crooked in 2016.
          There is no way Joetato drove 81 Million to the polls for him when even online speeches couldn’t draw flies to a carcass like his. Even ¡Jeb! got larger, more enthusiastic crowds and he was the most pathetic major campaign with Big $ behind him in history to that point.

          In fact Biteme had to have the PRIMARIES rigged for him as he was coming in 3rd and 4th place early on.

          1. Trump got 11 million more legitimate votes (at least, probably more) than in 2016.

            Yep. And we know that in addition to adding votes to the dope, they subtracted votes from Trump in order not to have the total exceed the historic voting patterns.

      1. They fled Iran and the Mullahs.

        He’s an Attaturk secularized Muslim. He could never support any of MAGA otherwise.

        He’s not Ilhan Omar.

  2. Why would they not cheat? They didn’t as much as get a parking ticket for the last one. “Our” guys don’t even support the Constitutional rights of thse held 2 plus years in solitary for misdemeanors! We have NO representation

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
