TDS is a horrible disease.

Presented for your consideration, columnist Bret Stephens, who used to be a conservative:  New York Times columnist Bret Stephens declares coronavirus is Trump’s ‘Chernobyl’

Not even close, you NeverTrump moron.

Chernobyl was preventable, not only in hindsight, and could easily have been seen barrelling down the highway toward disaster, but the Soviet system didn’t work that way. Result: Meltdown. (Something that’s never happened in the US, not even at Three Mile Island, where so little radiation was released, it almost couldn’t be measured. And certainly not at Hanford-N, which was the closest thing we had to a Chernobyl-style reactor, and which was engineered properly with plenty of safeguards so it would not have done what Chernobyl did.)

Conversely, nobody saw Covid-19 coming. And if anyone is to blame, it’s the Red Chinese for not reacting appropriately. (I’m not giving any credence to the conspiracy theories, so don’t look for that here — but even if they were true, the Red Chinese still did not react appropriately.)

The fact is, totalitarian regimes do not handle disaster well. On the other hand, I can’t see where Trump has set a foot wrong on this to date. Yeah, he tweets a lot of BS and says a lot of things that might or might not be true, but that’s not indicative of what’s going on behind the scenes. You solve a pandemic by closing borders, stopping flights, advising people to increase social distance, and telling those who are exposed to go home and stay away from other people for a couple of weeks unless they develop symptoms, in which case you call the hospital and tell them you think you have the virus so they can be ready to handle you when you get there (like Community North handled the case that landed on their doorstep last week). These things are all being done, despite the seeming inability of the CDC to get their sh*t together until they were prodded to do so.

Other than throw a ton of (borrowed) money at the problem, I don’t see what Trump’s detractors in Congress have done to slow down what WHO is finally calling a pandemic (as if we didn’t all know that weeks ago). Mostly his Congressional detractors have simply lied through their teeth about Trump’s response to the problem. The media, for their part, have gone into full panic mode and the markets are just following the panic. (The markets will be fine. The media, not so sure of that.)

We’ve finally seen universities telling students to stay home after spring break and not come back to classes; they’ll teach classes online for a few weeks and hopefully prevent the virus from running rampant through their hallowed halls. Strangely enough, some of their students are protesting this, which only points up once again why the voting age should be raised to a minimum of 21 (I would be more comfortable with 40) and why children should, by and large, be seen and not heard. Even IU is going to do this. Talk about cats and dogs living together. IU never closes. Ask my wife.

So in many ways, the crisis is being handled well, and Dr. Benton Quest Trump (and his Race Bannon look-alike sidekick, Pence*) are due a lot of credit for that, even if the nutbags at the New York Times and the Washington Post are near to committing seppuku over the failure, once again, of their anti-Trump narrative.

And the NeverTrumpers are showing their true colors as usual, so angry and spiteful (and out of government) from TDS they need double windscreens on their microphones to keep from spitting all over them. Believe it or not, Bret Stephens used to be a fairly smart guy. Now he’s just another soi-disant “conservative” fool who’d rather burn down the country than save it. To the devil with him, and the rest of all NeverTrumpers.

* Come on.  Admit it.  If you grew up watching Jonny Quest, you want Race Bannon handling this kind of thing.

Thoughts and prayers

I have not listened to Rush Limbaugh for literally years, ever since I got tired of the constant “inline” ad breaks and frankly what I considered to be an alarming trend in his love of his own voice resulting in fewer and fewer minutes of caller input.  And in general, three hours of political yak yak in the middle of the day during the Obama misAdministration didn’t sit well on my stomach, most days.  Bottom line, the signal to noise ratio had dropped considerably, and I had better things to do.  (Maybe this has changed but it’s too late for me to go back to find out.)

So despite the fact that I know he’s long been a connoisseur of fine cigars, it nevertheless came as a shock to hear that he had announced his diagnosis of advanced lung cancer.

Naturally, this announcement brought out the usual gleeful left-wing suspects talking about, for instance, what a great world it would be without Rush Limbaugh in it, and so forth.  But at least one person on the left took the high road, instead:

Now, I don’t care for her politics, but damn, the lady is a class act. If the rest of the Democrats had half her grace and honesty, this primary season might be bearable. They could (and will) do a lot worse than nominate Ms. Gabbard.

All the best to Rush. Cancer is apolitical and indiscriminate. We should support its sufferers ditto.

Hawkeye Cauci bite the big one.

“Inconsistencies in the reporting” == “OMFG WTF Bernie won now what do we do?”

Shut up, they explained.

Celebrities have no special insight and should be laughed at

“Shut up and sing.” Ah, if only our “celebrities” would follow that simple dictum and stick to what they know…which isn’t much.

So, just to set the record straight, Bette Midler thinks our servicemen and diplomatic personnel are expendable, and they should have been left to die like her goddess Hillary did the Benghazi crew, just to splash mud on the current president’s face. Good to know.

Hey, Bette, exit question: Should your hero Hillary and her ex-boss Barry face an inquiry and jail time for leaving US officials and Marines to die at the hands of barbarians? Same thing, amirite?

Also good to know that most of the early commenters on this twit, er tweet of hers were slapping her around exactly as she deserved.

Sad for Ms. Bette that we have a real President who dropped a rapid reaction force into Baghdad and took care of the problem.

Stupid cow bitch commie traitor.

 

Mr. McConnell, tear down this impeachment.

SCOTUS: No Articles of Impeachment or a Trial Are Required For The Senate to Acquit President Trump

[T]he Supreme Court has ruled – in the Nixon case [Nixon v. United States, 506 U.S. 224 (1993)] – that how the Senate goes about acquitting or convicting any impeached person is non-justiciable, in that the Senate’s power is plenary and the Supreme Court may not even review it.

This means that if the Senate acquits Trump immediately – without a trial – the Supreme Court has no authority, whatsoever, to review the Senate’s acquittal, and there isn’t a damn thing the House can do about it.

Which means that the Dems arguing that Trump hasn’t been impeached yet and the Senate must wait for the articles to be “transmitted” are a bunch of lying sacks of shite.

That SCOTUS ruling, by the way, was 9-0. Even the liberal Democrats then on the court concurred.

It’s time to end this farce, Mr. McConnell. The Senate must take action. Bring it to the floor and proceed to a vote.

The stupid, it burns.

Damn it, another day, yet another fucking idiot to make fun of.

Last week, a Native American botanist argued that the genetic modification of crops is a form of rape. Perhaps the next step in the #MeToo movement involves returning to the low crop yields before the Green Revolution, which saved billions of lives by making food more available through genetic modification, among other things.

Robin Wall Kimmerer, a botanist, member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, and director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment at SUNY-Syracuse, called corn “one of our deepest and oldest relatives.” In an interview with Wisconsin Public Radio, she humanized corn as the “Corn Mother,” saying, “Corn is sacred because she gives us her children in return for protecting us.”

Kimmerer wasn’t talking about the sweet corn Americans love to eat today, but rather the Native corn that comes in hundreds of varieties. She contrasted this wild corn with the genetically modified corn her neighbor grows.

“There’s a word for forcible injection of unwanted genes,” Kimmerer said. “Rape.”

There’s also a word for people who try to anthropomorphize non-sentient plants:  Fucking idiots.

OK, that’s a phrase, not a word, but same difference.

We eat well today, and so does much of the rest of the world — including the shitholes that used to bury millions who suffered and died from malnutrition and plain old starvation — mainly because of one man who sparked the Green Revolution mentioned above:  Norman Borlaug.

What blows my mind is that the whole idea of genmodding crops is only a step removed from the old ways of farming for greater yields, which involved things like culling, grafting, and selective breeding — all of which changed the genetic makeup of crops over thousands of years so that we actually have the non-GM crops we have today.

Wheat was just a grass.  Corn (maize) was also just a grass.  Vegetables we take for granted today like cauliflower, broccoli, and others of the family of Cruciferous vegetables, are all descended from the humble mustard plant.

And none of them got where they are today without someone — a lot of someones — selectively breeding them for desired qualities, including the size of the “ear”, that is, the seeds.  Wheat originally had little gluten content, but modern strains have lots of it.  Borlaug himself created high-yield strains of wheat by crossbreeding existing strains and combining their qualities — he might take one strain known to produce large ears, and another strain known to be resistant to some particular disease or fungus that was plaguing the first strain, and combine them until he had a new strain that had both large ears and disease resistance.

Genmod simply takes the ancient practices and goes a little deeper.  We get things like golden rice that way, which saves millions of Third World children from vitamin A deficiencies and prevents them from going blind.  We also get wheat that is resistant to stem rust that way.

So as the article continues,

Wisconsin Public Radio noted that the sweet corn “has been altered by agribusiness,” but the article did not mention the role genetically modified corn has played in the Green Revolution, which has been credited with saving 1 billion lives and averting the doomsday prediction of Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb.

[snip]

The Green Revolution combined genetic modification with new fertilizers and agro-chemicals, controlled water supply, and new mechanical cultivation. These new methods may strike an advocate for native practices as strange or even barbaric, but they saved more than a billion people across the world.

Those who wish to see corn as a sacred “Corn Mother” represent a return to the ancient animistic view of the world. Treating plants as sentient beings may sound hip and “progressive,” but Kimmerer’s rejection of genetic modification is backward, and it could be dangerous. Would she really want to reverse the Green Revolution and bring back pre-modern levels of starvation?

Well, I don’t know, but she sure sounds like she would.  There sure isn’t any going back without condemning millions of people to starvation and death.

People with this level of Luddism and idiocy are dangerous, and really need to be removed from positions of influence and authority before they do actual harm.  Sadly, they’ll probably stay right where they are for years, and continue to sell their brand of stupid to successive classes of mush-for-brains college students.  We can only hope that they’ll shake it off in later life and realize how fortunate they are to live in a modern age where most of us don’t have to worry about food shortages, famine, and starving to death.

Sheila Jackson Lee is an idiot…but I repeat myself.

Sheila Jackson Lee, you are an idiot, a poseur, and a disgrace to the House of Representatives — insofar as anything can disgrace it further. You have proven you know nothing:

“I don’t know what else it takes but I don’t believe we can stop at the door of the United States House. I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I’ve introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I had it. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a .50-caliber, these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.”

  • An AR-15 is “as heavy as 10 boxes you might be moving.” What? Clearly Ms. Jackson Lee has never moved house by herself before. Or she’s talking about 10 shoeboxes. Or smaller.  (Someone in the comments to that linked article suggested 10 one-pound boxes of cocaine…which would still be about three pounds heavy.)
  • The bullet “is a .50-caliber”. No. It’s a 5.56mm. .223 caliber if you really want to be a stickler.  Yeah, you can buy a .50cal upper for an AR-pattern weapon.  It doesn’t shoot the .50BMG like the Ma Deuce, it shoots .50 Beowulf, which is usually used as a feral hog cartridge, or so I’m told.  By and large, citizen owners of the AR-15 don’t have that mod, anyway, and aren’t interested in using it for home defense — I hope.
  • Jackson Lee first calls whatever rifle she’s talking about “the caliber weapon”. This is like Carolyn McCarthy calling the AR’s folding stock “the shoulder thing that goes up.”

These stupid statements show that she knows nothing whatsoever about the firearm she is trying to ban. Which is pretty sad, when you get right down to it. Ignorance of these things shows that she is a knee-jerk statist gun banner who doesn’t care that the vast, vast, VAST majority of AR-15 rifles in private hands in this country have never been used for any illegal purpose. I mean, read this for more illogic and “must protect phoney baloney job” rhetoric:

“We’re at a domestic crisis and it’s toxic and it’s combined with hatred and besides the toxicity of hate, we have guns, and we cannot wait any longer,” she said. “We’re good people in Texas but we’re frightened and so what I’m hearing from people is they are frightened, that they believe they cannot live in this kind of status and definition of what Texas is.”

“We cannot wait any longer.” Right. Like Glenn Reynolds said after Sandy Hook,

“When people say things like ‘don’t let this moment pass without acting on gun control,’ what they’re really saying is our arguments are so unpersuasive that they can only succeed when people aren’t thinking clearly.

And I’d like to see her get her Dumbs through the Senate’s sergeant at arms to “flood the Senate”. If I were Mitch McConnell, I’d have the Capitol Police up there ready to arrest any of them who try.

Citizens of Texas, you need to rid yourselves of this hideously stupid boil on the ass of the body politic. And that, soon.

And Ms. Jackson Lee?  Your constituents (and many other patriotic Americans) have long had a saying (though I have it on reliable authority that the Spartans said it first):  Come and take them.

We dare you.  Because we know you don’t have the guts to do it yourself, any more than Xerxes did at Thermopylae.

Pelosi stumbles

As Roger Simon puts it, “The re-election of Donald Trump will be dated from the evening of May 23, 2019.”

It would have happened sooner or later, but Nancy Pelosi’s out-of-control behavior—accusing Trump of a cover-up before meeting with him (sheesh), demanding his family stage an intervention (double sheesh), etc.—clearly forced the president finally to issue a memo giving Attorney General Barr authority to declassify the 2016 campaign surveillance documents. (He undoubtedly had it in his hip pocket for a while.)

Unlike Simon, who himself seems to waffle a bit on the subject, I don’t think Trump was “forced” to do this at all.  He’s said all along he was going to declassify the material.  I think he did have this memo in his hip pocket for awhile, but I also think he was waiting for the best (for the Democrats, the worst) possible time to issue it.

And Pelosi just could not keep her yap shut and play nice with the President while her underlings, dripping saliva from their slack mouths like rabid dogs, continue to press for impeachment where there is no impeachable offense.  Nope.  The Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong with this one.  So you want to play cover-up games, Madame Speaker?  Try covering this up once it’s revealed to the public in all of its ugly glory.  And either way Simon wants to slice it — forced or unforced — he still ends up with this:

Result: game changer. The re-election of Donald Trump will be dated from the evening of May 23, 2019. And the supposedly politically-savvy Ms. Pelosi will be marked down as the instigator.

Yeah, I know I already put that up top.  I’m savoring it, it’s my blog, and fuck you if you don’t like me repeating it.

I know there are a lot of folks out there even on the GOP side who pooh-pooh the idea that Donald Trump is playing 4D intergalactic chess while the Democrats and everyone else who opposes him are playing checkers.  As I keep repeating, Donald Trump is not a politician.  He’s a businessman.  He did not get where he is today without understanding the elements of how a business deal works, and how you get to the deal not only through negotiation but also by grandstanding and brinkmanship.  You call people belittling names and talk about their poor levels of cognition.  You understand that a trade war with a country that sells us a lot of stuff but doesn’t buy nearly as much in return* can be won with tariffs (something the Wall Street Journal editorial board doesn’t seem to understand).  You just keep slugging and slugging and slugging until the other guy screams “Uncle!”

And that’s why Donald Trump is playing at troll level Intergalactic Grand Master when it comes to dealing with politicians both domestic and foreign.  And they do not understand how to fight back, or even how to defend themselves against that sort of attack, because “nobody in government does that!”

Donald Trump does.  We can’t spare this man.  He fights.

And I would not have said that even three years ago.

* Please don’t tell me how much corn and soy China buys from US farmers, and how tariffs are going to kill the small family farmer.  The Chinese can threaten all day to stop buying food from us, but only if they want famine in their country.  Farmers are planners, all over the world, and you can’t simply walk over to another country and say, “We want to buy this year’s soybean crop from you,” when that soybean crop was already sold two years ago to someone else.  China is beginning to discover to its dismay the realities of the market, and regardless of tariffs, they’ll still buy US soybeans and corn, and pork, and all kinds of other foodstuffs, because they simply won’t be able to buy them anywhere else.  Oh, and if China starts a war with the West?  Hope they have lots of rations stuffed away, because they can’t even begin to feed their own people if their western partners shut off the supply.  Japan found that out at the end of WWII.  The Brits would have been in that sort of trouble throughout WWII if it hadn’t been for US convoys shipping them food (one of the reasons we had to ration food during the war), and the Brits were still rationing food until 1954, nine years after the war ended, and fourteen years after rationing started in 1940.  So don’t tell me the Chinese can just buy their food elsewhere.  They can’t even nuke us into submission and come and take it from us, unless they want to die from eating irradiated food.

No, really. You should all be worried.

There’s a saying about fascism that’s always amused me — “The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe.”*

I’ve long thought that there is a corollary:  “The dark night of political violence is always descending on the Republican Party and yet lands only on the Democratic Party.”

Physical attacks on members of the other party are not new in the American Republic.  If we count the Hamilton-Burr duel, they go clear back to the Founding.  Add in Preston Brooks and his caning of Charles Sumner in the Senate chamber.  Brooks, like Burr, was some form of Democrat (the Democratic Party of today is the descendant of earlier parties that we would consider leftist).  Brooks was also a slaveholder from South Carolina.

And while the above are fairly egregious and amount to cherry-picking on my part, the fact is that most political violence that has occurred in the United States has been engendered by the people of the Left.  Republicans since the Civil War have been pretty civil, all things considered.  Democrats have tended to be associated with unions, big city machines, and organized crime.  Of course there are exceptions to every rule, including this one.  But by and large, you can pick an act of American political violence at random and there’s a good chance that it was perpetrated by a leftist who more than likely associated with the Democratic Party.

The assassins of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy were all leftists of one stripe or another.  The attempted assassinations of Ford and Reagan were perpetrated by leftists.

The so-called “antifa” which smears the right with charges of fascism, is itself fascist in nature.  Facism, as I have explained MANY times on this blog, is a philosophy of the Left.  Ask Benito Mussolini where he got the idea.  Hint:  It was from an American President who fucked over this country almost more than Barack Obama.

But all of this pales in the recent attempts by leftists to intimidate (or, simply kill) Republican politicians.  The shooting by an avowed Bernie Sanders supporter at a GOP softball practice in which Congressman Steve Scalise was badly wounded.  The beating and near-crippling of Congressman Rand Paul by a neighbor, sketchily attributed to a spat about lawn care but more likely an act of political violence.  (Paul was also present at the GOP softball practice.)  The “soft” violence of the Kavanaugh accusations, which turned out to be a tissue of lies after the GOP leadership found its cajones and forced hearings and testimony under oath, followed by the resultant doxxing of several GOP Senate leaders by a former member of a Congressional Democrat’s staff.  The continued calls for violent behavior from the likes of Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker.  The abusive sexual antics of Senator Robert Menendez and Rep. Keith Ellison, which Democrats have tried to keep quiet and shoved in the closet while prating about the supposed kinks of Brett Kavanaugh.  And let’s not mention Bill Clinton and his sexual escapades (the Democrats are certainly trying to ignore them).

But let us not forget that the charges against Menendez, Ellison, and Clinton have evidence behind them.  The charges against Kavanaugh were clearly made up out of whole cloth.

The very idea that we should automatically believe a woman’s story when she claims rape, and toss the hoary old concepts of due process and “innocent until proven guilty” out the window — proposed by no less than the Senate Minority Leader — is an act of political violence against our very system of justice and law.**  This idea is no different than the idea that a university tribunal should be able to prosecute a rape case without any due process at all, and undoubtedly stems from the same Gramscian damage that affects our universities.

This is akin to what the Nazis did in Germany before World War II.  The GOP is accused constantly of being the new Nazi party and its leaders are always worse than Hitler.  Yet it seems that the Democrats who make these accusations are actually looking in the mirror and projecting their own faults onto the GOP for political gain.  The sheer evil of some of the social media postings I’ve seen emanating from American leftists suggest that the antifa folk and their ilk are simply the new Brown Shirts.  “Punch a Nazi,” indeed — they’re the Nazis.  At any rate, we’ve seen this movie before, and frankly, we’re sick and tired of it.

The sad thing is that the progressives are punching far above their own weight class, and we’re letting them get away with it.  They complain mightily about “white supremacists” and yet the very people against whom they inveigh can barely get a hundred people to show up for a “national” protest march in DC.  The Ku Klux Klan is dead, antifa boys and girls; the Civil Rights Act pretty much put paid to it, although vestiges do survive to this day.  But the effort to portray white supremacists as some sort of monolithic national fraternity consisting of millions of card-carrying members who are out to hold down the black man (and anyone else they can manage to hold down) got some traction, particularly when useful idiots in the South started clamoring to tear down monuments to old Confederate generals — and even some Union ones who happened to have held slaves at one point or another.  Shoot, even George Washington got mixed into the fray, even though he died just over 61 years before the first guns were fired at Sumter.  He was a slaveholder; that was sufficient.

And yet, the actual number of progressives who are actively involved in all the screaming, yelling, punching, and tearing down of monuments is very, very small.  It cannot be otherwise.  Millions of people are still going to work, going to church, raising families, going shopping, having social events, taking vacations, and otherwise acting like normal Americans while all this hooroar*** is going on.  The Resistance isn’t getting much traction among the common folk, because the common folk have lives and jobs and plans for the future that don’t include dystopian Big Brother government.

The screaming fits and the violence threatened and perpetrated against conservative lawmakers and citizens alike is the thrashing of a beast that has found itself stuck in a trap of its own making.  The trap is the progressive conceit that only progressive elites know what is best for the “little people,” who aren’t capable of thinking for themselves (made clear by the fact that so many people consider progressive ideas to be little more than pie-in-the-sky bullshit).

But like any beast caught in a trap, the progressives are still dangerous.  And that’s why we should be worried.  Things are crazy enough now, with actual lawmakers advocating with straight faces the end of the rule of law.  They scoff at due process.  They want to throw the borders open and abolish ICE.  They support so-called sanctuary cities and refuse to let local police assist the Feds.  They want all US citizens beholden to the great god Government, from whom they believe all blessings emanate.  They want to control where you go to school, how much health care you get, whether or not you can drive a car, and just about everything else down to levels of privacy invasion the Russian Communists only dreamed of and the Chinese variety are putting into daily use.  Do you want the government to maintain a database of “social credit” that establishes your reputation and status as a citizen?  The Chinese will have that implemented by 2020, or so they say.  Our progressives would love such a system.  It would make it so easy to determine who got food, water, housing, clothing, education, transport…passports…and don’t even think about having a gun under a system like that.

The problem with a Republic is that we have to be vigilant in order to keep it.  Americans have largely laid down on that job for the past century and let government have its way.  A lot of Americans are finally waking up to the idea that we’re going to have to do something about it, or lose our freedoms altogether.

Not to dwell on the Kavanaugh nomination, but this is a critical time in our history.  The Supreme Court shouldn’t be this important, but because of the continuing inroads progressives are making into turning the US into another shitty little third-world country, someone has to have the sanity to say no.  A Court divided 4 to 4 plus a swing vote nobody can depend on is not how this is supposed to work.  If we have any hope of returning to Constitutional government, the Court needs to have thoughtful jurists on the bench who can read the text of the Framers’ document and derive judgement from its plain meaning.  We have had enough of penumbras and emanations, and of a “living” Constitution whose meaning changes with the wind.

And yet, the Court has often indicated its unwillingness to save Americans from themselves and legislate from the bench, instead of forcing the peoples’ representatives to do their jobs and write cogent and Constitutional law.  Can you blame the Justices?  We started out in 1789 with a user’s manual for a country that made clear what the government could do and what it could not do.  And we’ve let the government get away with murder ever since.

Progressives who do not want to see conservatives get a solid 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court would like to keep getting away with murder.  Sometimes literally.  And that’s why you should worry.

And maybe — just maybe — we’ve finally woken up to the idea that it’s time to put an end to that, and stop worrying so much about the future.

November 6 is coming.  Will you do your duty?

** Before you tell me what a bad man I am not to automatically believe a woman when she cries rape, my wife is a rape victim.  She went immediately to police and made out a report and submitted to a rape kit examination.  She testified at the rapists’ (there were two) trial.  They went to prison for raping not only her, but another woman as well.  Case closed.  This was only a few years after Christine Blasey Ford thinks she might have been raped or molested or maybe even just looked at lasciviously by Brett Kavanaugh.  I assure you that my wife remembers quite well what happened to her, where it happened, and when it happened.  Conversely, I don’t believe a word CBF says, because even if something did happen 35 years ago, she’s spent so much time and effort repressing the memory that anything she says today about it would have to be suspect.

*** A word I will swear I learned reading Walt Kelly’s Pogo comic, but I can’t find a reference to same.

If there is a blue wave, it won’t be due to anything the Democrats have done.

Ed Driscoll over at Instapundit links to this:  Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ): We Are Less Than 60 Days From Totally ‘Kicking the S–t Out of the Republicans.’

Lovin’ the new civility, there, Rube.  You don’t mind if I call you Rube, do you?  Hey, Rube!

And yet…three days of the Democrat Follies last week coupled with this completely unbelievable rape charge from some Dem bint professor cunt (but I repeat myself several times) that was hidden conveniently away by Sen. DiFi (D-PRC) until it was obvious that Bret Kavanaugh was a shoo-in for confirmation, regardless of the three-ring circus the left put on at the hearings…folks, if you think that has changed anybody’s mind about voting for people who (well, we hope anyway) will continue to advance the Trump agenda in Congress, you have a raging case of TDS, and I have land to sell you in Florida.

Because all this shit?  All this shit is how you GET MORE TRUMP.

I won’t even go into the polling numbers, because polls lie.  They are wholly-owned by the Democrat Industrial Election Complex at this point.  The internals of the polls may indicate that they talked to x number of Dems, x number of Pubs, and x number of independents, but they don’t (and can’t) show that most people on the right do one of two things when a pollster calls or a canvasser knocks on their door:

  • Don’t answer.
  • Lie.

Because we all know the game at this point…and we refuse to play.  Anybody who chooses for whom to vote based on polling is either a Democrat, or stupid (and there I go again, repeating myself).  Indeed, we’d rather see you puff up the numbers for the ‘Craps so the run of the mill ‘Crap voters feel all confident and think, “eh, we’re safe, I don’t really have to go vote.”

And then we do what we did in November 2016 — run the table on all y’all where it counts.

Even if we don’t run the table, I’m willing to predict that the GOP doesn’t lose control of either house…and that Bret Kavanaugh will be confirmed before the election.

Trying to Anita Hill Bret Kavanaugh just got a lot of people really angry…at the Democrats.  We didn’t like it when you pulled that shit with Clarence Thomas, and we like it even less now.

But keep on trying to Barnum and Bailey the American public, if that’s how you think you’re going to win.  Just remember:  A lot of people really don’t like clowns.
