Trump 2017

It’s the first Friday since the election.  What a week!

While far from being a Trump supporter, I admit that it was easy to get caught up in the enthusiasm.  Trump won—and he didn’t win by a narrow margin, either.  Even now, the electoral votes aren’t finished coming in, and neither is the popular vote.  But by the electoral vote alone, he’s expected to win Michigan—that would bring his final tally up to an expected 305.  Meanwhile, the Republicans have maintained control of the House, the Senate, most state governorships, and a plethora of state legislatures.  This is called a mandate.  The question on everyone’s minds now is, what next?  Continue reading “Trump 2017”

It’s Almost Over.

It’s 2016.  Trump is, at this point, slated to win the election.  He seems like a bigot and a blowhard, a New York liberal wearing GOP getup, and blonde orange machine of destruction.  He probably is most of those things.  Meanwhile, Clinton’s camp is in ruins, for the time being.  Tuesday is the election, but with every day yielding the number or headlines expected of a whole month of news, that’s still a quarter of a year away.  Could she still win?  Certainly.  Could the votes be rigged?  Certainly.  Could Trump still win?  Absolutely.  At this point, it’s his election to lose.

One of These Two Disasters Is Going to be President

Election day draws nearer for those fortunate enough to have an iota of faux-political power in these great United States, and predictably, the seething antagonistic rhetoric indicative of the deep cultural divides in our nation ramps up by the day.  We have a mere eleven days left before we all have the option to stroll dejectedly into our voting booths to pull the lever for the new face of evil that will guide our political lives for the next four years.  Those of us that are afraid of Hillary’s landslide victory are busy stocking up on weapons and ammunition, fresh water, and canned food—although, in this particular writer’s case, it’s unfortunately a little too late to begin digging that fallout shelter he always wanted.  Those of us that are afraid of Trump’s landslide victory are also busy stocking up on weapons and ammunition, fresh water, and canned food—although, for some of our more liberal friends, they might have some ethical consternations about buying that dangerously seductive AR-15 available at their nearest Wal-Mart.  In any case, as a nation, we are preparing for the worst, because the worst is what is, in all probability, to be upon us soon.

What Is the Alt-Right?

Hillary Clinton’s speech yesterday focused on a stale and robotically-delivered attack on the so-called “Alt-Right”.  She kicks it off with speaking of how concerned people speak to her on the topic of how divisive Donald Trump’s rhetoric has been this election cycle.  For anyone with a working cerebral cortex and the ability to remember four years ago, the Obama reelection campaign’s rhetoric was no less divisive—his VP Biden went so far as to literally accuse Romney of wanting to re-enslave blacks and “put [them] back in chains,” while simultaneously Obama himself stoked the classist-fueled fires of the then-recent Occupy Wall Street nonsense and dismissed the Tea Party as an entire group of braindead racists.  Hillary’s own platform—now endorsed by a Marxist-Leninist Soviet apologetic who has ridden the Occupy wave—has no room to criticize divisive rhetoric.

So who are the Alt-Right?  Why should anyone care? Continue reading “What Is the Alt-Right?”

I’m Not A #NeverTrumper After All

Donald Trump is a walking disaster of a candidate.  He can’t explain what the role of government is supposed to be, he exemplifies the sort of fascistic dear leader idol-worshiping that characterizes Leftist demagogues, and his social and economic policies fall Left of center on almost every front—and that’s assuming anything he says even remotely reflects what he actually believes or plans to do should he win the Presidency.  Worse still, he’s now the de facto leader of the only major political party whose platform is supposed to be against all of these things.  Conservatism in the United States is supposed to value adherence to Constitutional and small governance, free trade and freer markets, and the importance of ideas over ethnicities, policies over rhetoric, and personal character over just about everything else.  Trump’s running for President is one thing; his hijacking of what stands in for the “Conservative” political party in this country is another.

Justice Department? Who Needs One of Those?

A few days ago, the US Justice Department, headed by US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, declined the FBI’s request to investigate the Clinton Foundation, one of the ugliest, slimiest-looking non-profit fundraising organization this side of Hades.  And as it turns out, three of the DOJ’s own field offices also wanted to investigate the Foundation, and, predictably, their requests were also rejected.  Why is this a big deal?  Good question, because this isn’t really breaking news across the country.  A massive non-profit headed by an ex-president and his wife, an ex-secretary of state, both of whom have been mired in political scandals for the entirety of their respective political careers, which funnels hundreds of millions of dollars regularly from donors ranging from highly regarded businessmen to foreign nationals and dictators of oppressive regimes, which is being accused of corruption allegations on a global scale, and the DOJ doesn’t even want to investigate?  If this organization was run by a republican and his wife—say, Mitt Romney—everyone at the top of this foundation would already have been subpoenaed by now.

The 2016 DNC Bonanza (And It Hasn’t Even Started Yet)

This past weekend, a massive leak of emails between high members of the Democratic National Committee, the media, and other important figures related to the Clinton machine hit Wikileaks, revealing, to absolutely no-one’s surprise except the guidable and delusional pro-Hillary supporters, that the entire convention had been stacked against her opposition from the start.  As a result, Debbie Wasserman Schultz not only stepped down from her position as DNC Chair, she’s also submitted her resignation to officially join the Hillary campaign.  Whether this is a move to reward her long service at the DNC as a Clinton agent, or instead a way for the Machiavellian regime to keep even closer tabs on her after the failure of having gotten caught so obviously, is anyone’s guess.

Yesterday, news came out that she has also passed the opening gavel over to the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.  Brace yourselves.  The jokes literally write themselves. Continue reading “The 2016 DNC Bonanza (And It Hasn’t Even Started Yet)”

This Crap Makes Me Want To Puke

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks.  There have been reports and scandals that have resurfaced only to be batted around like tennis balls.  There have been terrible crimes committed by terrorists.  There have been protests and almost-riots.  And worst of all, none of this has passed without the all-consuming weight of the Narrative dragging it screaming into the public sphere.

Let’s start with the most disgusting, if not perhaps the most gruesome: Hillary Clinton. Continue reading “This Crap Makes Me Want To Puke”
